The Winter 2017 Raleigh Classic ramped up the action early as a 1970 Chevelle SS LS6 Convertible sold for $96,000 at the hammer. That really got people’s excitement up for an action packed Saturday here at the Jim Graham Building of the North Carolina State Fairgrounds.  Over 150 top muscle cars and classic ’50s and ’60s collector cars crossed the auction block today. The docket had a lot of high profile sales to entertain and inspire onlookers. 

Here are some of those sales recorded here on Saturday at the Winter 2017 Raleigh Classic.

This weekend we are on hand to bring you your first look at a cherished collector car sale. Cars On is in Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend to report all the action as the cars cross the auction block here at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds, December 8-9, 2017. For a small sale, this one packs a punch. Discerning collectors have come to this sale for years to find low miles collector cars and cars of high vintage pedigree.

Opening Day on Friday

It feels like one of the best kept secrets in the collector car world is coming of age.  We actually noticed a lot of phone bidders getting involved already on Friday. Lets look at a few of the high profile sales. Here is what happened in the Friday sale at the Winter 2017 Raleigh Classic:

One thing we noticed right away is that there are a lot of woody wagons here at the Winter 2017 Raleigh Classic. Our photo-journalist, Bob Boberg of is covering the event. He said, “The sell through rate was good with the top sales today, a black 1960 Thunderbird Convertible which sold for $58,500 followed closely by a white ’61 Corvette at $58,000 (both Hammer prices).  As always there were a nice selection of low mileage cars and some rare models.  Tomorrow is when most of muscle cars and the higher dollar cars like the ’49 Chrysler T&C cross the auction block.”

“Its a great sale,” said Bob Boberg, of “We came here last year and were very impressed with the quality of the cars. Because it is a smaller sale, a collector can get a good car at an affordable price here.” We can’t wait to see what we can pick up this weekend.
