Russo and Steele is adding another day to its 10th anniversary Monterey auction event this August 12-14, 2010. Held at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Monterey, California, the additional evening program will see Russo and Steele extend its event to three days and more than 250 cars, with the auction kicking off Thursday, August 12th at 5:00 pm.
“After receiving overwhelming requests from clients that want to participate in our 10th Anniversary Monterey auction and seeing a 25% increase in bidder registration already, expanding the show into a three evening program was the natural evolution,” explained Drew Alcazar, owner of Russo and Steele. “Our 10th Anniversary has received tremendous amounts of attention and limitless amounts of support from the entire collector automobile industry. With the additional Thursday evening auction, Monterey at the Marriott will undoubtedly exemplify the high energy experience and phenomenal quality automobiles enthusiasts have come to expect from Russo and Steele.”
Early headline consignments include a 1965 Shelby Cobra CSX2461 and 1933 Auburn Salon Boattail Speedster. The Shelby Cobra, CSX 2461 has been restored to a high standard and equipped with correct knock-off English-style wire wheels, a walnut steering wheel and Weber carburetors under the hood. The 1933 Auburn Salon Boattail Speedster, serial number 1935 H, was inspected by the ACD and certified in April of 1997. A copy of the certificate and ACD records are available upon request. On completion of its most recent restoration, this Auburn Salon Speedster won Best in Show and the Prestigious AB Jenkins Award at the October, 2009 Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg meet in Santa Maria, California.
