LAKELAND, FL – The Lakeland Fall Collector Car Auction returns to the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus November 12-13 and offers an anticipated 400+ lots spanning automotive history; some even selling for a charitable cause.

With easy access just off the Polk Parkway, I-4 and County Line Rd., the SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus has been home to Carlisle Auctions multiple times a year dating back to 2015. This time around, and just in time for the holiday season, bidders and buyers alike can enjoy muscle cars, antiques, daily drivers, best of show gems, trucks and so much more. 

Starting at 10:30 a.m. daily auction action will kick off.  November 12 will feature an all-truck hour starting at 1:30 p.m., meaning those who are into the truck lifestyle can watch for 60 minutes straight, truck after truck cross the block. Jeeps will also be part of this hour and with the popularity of Jeeps in Polk County and Florida as a whole, may offer a hopeful Jeep owner a chance to pick up a new ride at an affordable price.


Speaking of pricing, with the cost of new and used cars up 27% and a projected delay in new car inventory through 2023, the auction is THE BEST way to find something pre-owned at an affordable price point. Lots will range from four-figures to six and each will be a wise investment.  Inventory will also span nearly 100 years of production.

All-new for the Lakeland Fall Collector Car Auction, Carlisle Auctions has announced a partnership with the Rescue 22 Foundation. Rescue 22 is a non-profit with its training facilities based in Naples, whose mission is to pair highly trained service dogs with combat veterans. The aforementioned partnership will see a WWII era 1944 (titled as a 1957) Willys Jeep cross the block with 100% of the funds raised benefitting Rescue 22.  Rescue 22 will also have an onsite presence, showcasing their cause, and hosting combat veterans, service dogs, and more.


Complete details on the auction are available at In addition, the auction offers THREE great ways to bid on desired lots; in person, on the phone, or online! Best of all, once registered as a bidder, online bidding can commence immediately. Consignments are being added daily to the Carlisle Auctions web page. Finally, there is onsite RV parking for those looking to make the event a multi-day adventure.  For auction details, call 717-960-6400 and for details on RV parking, call 717-243-7855.
