History Made at Fall Auburn Auction 2019
Some historic cars were sold here at the Fall Auburn Auction 2019 as the tradition of celebrating automotive history continues on this Labor Day Weekend. Once again on Saturday, the top sale was a silver 2005 Ford GT with a hammer price of $265,000. The previous day, on Friday, the same thing happened with a Mark IV red 2005 Ford GT selling for $275,000. But two of the most hotly contested bidding wars broke out when a 1933 Chrysler CL Dual-Windshield Phaeton sold at $175,000, and a 1923 Duesenberg sold at $170,000. It is all part of the big Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Festival here in Auburn, Indiana. It is Prime Time Saturday here at the Fall Auburn Auction, and the bidding action got hot and heavy here this afternoon at the RM Auction Park.
The 1933 Chrysler CL Imperial Dual-Cowl Phaeton was impressive as it took the auction stage here in Auburn, during the 49th Annual Labor Day Weekend sale, August 29-September 1, 2019. It is one of fewer than twenty authentic survivors. It has a known history and is loaded with provenance. It is no wonder that the bidding was hotly contested. The bidding did not stop until this beautiful dual-windshield convertible was sold at $175,000. Here are photos from the Saturday sale.
