Carlisle Auctions Generates over $5 Million in Sales at Fall Carlisle
Hundreds of Classic and Collector Cars Cross the Block with Many Finding New Homes
Tuesday, October 9, 2018
A little rain did nothing to dampen the spirits of the bidders and spectators who gathered at the Carlisle Expo Center and made the Fall Carlisle auction part of their early October plans. In fact, the temps were cool at times outdoors, while things were sizzling hot indoors! Well hot enough that over $5 million in sales transpired. With over 100 years of production available, there really was a little something for everyone.
Each day of the auction offered something special, including select consignments earmarked for charity. Some cars saw the sale dollars go direct to the local Carlisle branch of the Salvation Army, while Friday saw a custom built wagon auctioned off to benefit a local animal rescue. The wagon, fabricated by Steve Mercurio of Pro Metal Shop of Danville, PA, garnered $1,000 for the Speranza Animal Rescue, plus nearly as much in secondary donations. There were also specialty hours dedicated to Ford and Chevrolet, while also spotlighting trucks too.
As noted above, over $5 Million in sales were consummated. Of that $5 Million, $582,615 came from its top five sellers. Those sales include the following:
1) 1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4 - $181,900
2) 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod - $133,750
3) 2010 Ferrari California - $100,580
4) 1966 Chevrolet Corvette - $88,810
5) 1967 Chevrolet Corvette - $77,575
Of course there are some that didn’t sell and Carlisle Auctions is eager to work with buyer and seller to help close a deal on a “Still For Sale” consignment.
