Duesenberg Sells for $1.15 Million …
Saturday evening we were there as a 1935 Duesenberg Model SJ sold for $1.15 million in prime time during the Auctions America Auction at Auburn Fall Festival. This was the top sale for Auctions America, a growing auction house and part of the RM Auctions franchise. Big money came to bid on this particular Duesenberg. This was the first time Auctions America has sold a Duesenberg for over a million dollars at this event.
Photo journalist Bob Boberg, of eClassicAutos.com, caught these exciting photos during the sale.
Auctions America puts on a great show each year during the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club’s Festival weekend here in Auburn, Indiana. The Auctions America Auburn Auction Park is a huge complex located just outside of the city of Auburn. In addition to the auction being held there this weekend, you’ll also find a giant swap meet, car corral and a number of automotive accessory vendors set up there.
Photographer Boberg also caught this sale in video.
But the Duesenberg was not the only exciting car to sell here last night. A very desirable 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition (looks just like the paint and trim on the Ford GT-40s that won the Grand Prix championship) sold for #340,000. And a 2005 Ford GT sold for #300,000.
