Auctions America by RM enjoyed a successful return to Carlisle, Pa., on Sept. 29 to Oct. 1, posting $2.79 million in sales with 50 percent of all lots sold at its debut Fall Carlisle sale.

Held as part of Carlisle Events’ Fall Carlisle Collector Car Weekend, the multi-day auction presented a diverse roster of 279 collector vehicles, joined by a select range of memorabilia before a packed house. Claiming top honors was a dramatically styled, show-quality 1959 De Soto Firedome convertible that sold for $99,000, closely followed by a low-mileage 2001 BMW Z8 convertible for $90,200.

In addition, the auction included the sale of a 2006 Ford Escape, donated by Giant Food Stores, which sold for $11,500 with all proceeds benefiting the local Carlisle branch of the Salvation Army.

The weekend sale wrapped up a successful 2011 partnership for Auctions America by RM and Carlisle Events, which joined forces earlier this year to host co-branded events in Auburn, Ind., and Carlisle.

“Despite the weather, Fall Carlisle was another great weekend and celebration of the collector car hobby. We’re pleased with the results and interest levels in our 2011 Carlisle auctions — they’ve provided a great foundation for us to further build upon in 2012,” said Donnie Gould, president of Auctions America by RM.

“I’m pleased with our initial partnership with Auctions America by RM,” noted Carlisle Events partner Bill Miller III. “We saw great results with both our spring and fall auctions and working with them exceeded our expectations.”

The top five sales were as follows (with buyer’s premium included):

  1. 1959 De Soto Firedome conv – $99,000
  2. 2001 BMW Z8 conv – $90,200
  3. 1959 Chevrolet Corvette conv – $63,800
  4. 1998 Bentley Brooklands – $46,750
  5. 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air HT – $46,200

Beyond the auction, the weekend also featured filming for the television series “What’s My Car Worth,” with three cars successfully rolled across the auction block and finding new buyers as part of the show. The episodes filmed during Fall Carlisle are slated to air on the newly rebranded Velocity Channel (formerly Discovery HD Theater) in November.
