The inaugural Auburn Fall Collector Car Auction by Auctions America was held at Auburn Auction Park on September 2-5, 2010, resulting in $13.4 million in total sales with a 52.7% sell-through rate of all lots, including motor cars, motorcycles and memorabilia.
The Auctions America team played host to over 25,000 visitors at the completely renovated Auburn Auction Park from September 2-5, 2010. In addition to the daily preview of quality automobiles and auction action, the event presented a swap meet, car corral and food vendors.
“Our first Auburn sale exceeded our expectations in every respect,” said Donnie Gould, Auctions America by RM. “But the most rewarding aspect of the weekend was the many compliments received from visitors and clients about the quality of our sale and of the upgrades to the auction park.”
The top seller of the four-day Labor Day weekend sale was a 1934 Duesenberg Model JN Convertible Sedan by Rollston which went to a telephone bidder for $962,500 in the packed auction arena during the Saturday session.
