Auburn, Indiana. - Worldwide is counting down to its second live sale of the year, with The Enthusiast Auction scheduled for April 23-24 at its company headquarters in Auburn, Indiana. Among the auction’s more unique highlights are an exciting offering of one-off custom cars and street rods and an outstanding 1952 Hudson 'Twin H-Power' Hornet Six Coupe, a highly authentic recreation of a NASCAR icon, presented in the "Fabulous Hudson Hornet" livery of racing legend Marshall Teague. Like the majority of consignments in the sale, the Hudson will sell without reserve, with a portion of the proceeds to be donated to Indiana’s Huntington University Film Department. In addition to an exceptional selection of cars, The Enthusiast Auction will also feature over 400 lots of fresh-to-market memorabilia, including porcelain signs, gas pumps, racing artifacts, pressed steel toys, pedal cars, and motorbikes, all offered at no reserve. The event also sees the introduction of The Enthusiast Tour, a three-day Midwest driving tour for classic aficionados that takes in multiple specialist automotive and culinary stops in Indiana, before rolling right back into Auburn for The Enthusiast Auction itself.
Based on a 1952 Hudson Hornet 6 Coupe, the captivating "Fabulous Hudson Hornet" recreation on offer here in Auburn features period-correct colors, painted-on race lettering and sponsorships and details celebrating famed Hudson driver Marshall Teague,” said John Kruse, Principal and Auctioneer. “Conjuring images of "Doc" Hudson from the wildly popular Disney/Pixar "Cars" movie franchise, it’s a fabulously fun car that will be instantly recognized by virtually all who see it and we’re delighted that a portion of the proceeds stand to benefit a great cause.”
Another consignment familiar with being the center of attention is an ultra-one-off custom known as the “DuPont Domination”, a 1934 Chevrolet Custom Roadster with completely coach-built body and chassis, a cover car for Street Rodder magazine that drove away with a first-place award for paint at the prestigious Oakland Roadster Show. Other one-of-a-kind builds going under the hammer include a 1957 Buick Century "Lavender Persuasion" Custom Coupe, built by famed customizer Rick Dore, and awarded Most Radical Custom at the Oakland Roadster Show, and a beautiful art deco style 1936 Deco Rides "Maharaja Special" One-Off Custom, built by Terry Cook of Deco Rides and Delahaye USA, a 19 year-long-project from conception.
