Gooding & Company announced that, for the first time, it will be hosting a two-day auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. Preceding the scheduled Saturday, January 23, 2010 sale, Gooding & Company will host an additional auction on Friday, January 22, 2010 at the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall starting at 11 a.m. As a special highlight for enthusiasts, the sale of the previously-announced 1956 Jaguar D-Type will be featured during the Friday auction, joining a long list of exceptional, recently-consigned collector cars.
“This January marks Gooding & Company’s third year in Scottsdale which has been a successful venue for us since the beginning,” says owner and President David Gooding. “Following a strong 2009 Arizona sale, we are thrilled to have the opportunity to extend our Scottsdale auction to two days. With sensational cars such as a 1956 Jaguar D-Type, a 1959 Ferrari Series 1 Pinin Farina Cabriolet and a one-off Murphy- bodied 1934 Duesenberg, we expect to have an exciting two days in Arizona.”
In addition to the European consignments previously announced, such as the rare 1932 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport and the 1956 Maserati A6G/54 Berlinetta, Gooding & Company added a second list of quality consignments to star in the Friday auction. New cars include a one-of-a-kind 1934 Duesenberg Model J with a Disappearing Top, a 1927 6 1/2-Litre Bentley Sports Coupe and the Briggs Cunningham and Stirling Moss-driven 1959 Costin Lister Jaguar Sports Racer.
“From their inception, Gooding & Company has presented truly remarkable classic, racing and sports cars, as well as superb private collections — always with impeccable provenance,” says Ken Gross, award-winning author and automotive historian. “Their auctions are exciting, entertaining and memorable. As proof, check out the one-of-a-kind Duesenberg Model J, Murphy disappearing top roadster, with its twin rear spares at Scottsdale. I don’t know where Gooding & Company find great cars like these, but they keep turning them up!”
