CARLISLE, PA – The Carlisle Expo Center was packed for two days (October 3-4) for the Fall auction and the team at Carlisle Auctions delivered once more!

With a bidder total that exceeded last fall’s registration and a lot of 500+ quality consignments, the table was set for two days of classic and collector car excitement. Trucks, cars, trikes, bikes and motorcycles all crossed the block. Fall even offered a 60’s themed “power hour” as a tribute to a decade of automotive excellence more than 50 years ago. The theme, combined with the overall event and excitement by its participants, helped tally $3.6 million in sales and an over 50% sell through rate.

Of the $3.6 million in sales, $328,902 came from its top five sellers. The top five, outlined below, included a Ferrari, two Corvettes, a Cadillac and a Buick. All sales data quoted includes applicable fees. 

1) 1986 Ferrari Testarossa - $88,810

2) 1966 Chevrolet Corvette - $78,830

3) 2016 Chevrolet Z06 Corvette - $68,212

4) 1954 Cadillac Eldorado - $65,270

5) 1955 Buick Super 88 - $57,780

While more than 250+ consignments sold, that means about the same amount did not. Those cars are “still for sale” and a Carlisle Auctions team member is available today to help negotiate a sale if buyer and seller can agree on a price point. Some of those cars are currently showcased on the Carlisle Auctions web page.
