More than 100 vehicles from the Old Car Heaven museum in Birmingham, Alabama, will be sold under a federal court-ordered no-reserve auction on December 2. The sale will be conducted at the museum facility by Tom Mack Auctions of Charlotte, North Carolina, Mack announced.
“The automotive contents of a museum called ‘Old Car Heaven’ at 3501 1st Avenue South, near downtown in Birmingham, Alabama 35222 will be sold at No Reserve with no minimum bid starting at 11:00 a.m. CST on Saturday, December 2, 2017,” Mack said in a news release.
Old Car Heaven is closing at the end of this year.
Mack added that the docket will include, but is not limited to:
- At least 47 convertibles or open cars
- At least 52 Mopar — Chrysler, Dodge, Imperial and Plymouth — cars and trucks, including 8 Chrysler letter-series cars and 3 Chrysler Imperial dual-windshield Phaetons
- 7 station wagons, trucks or utility vehicles
- 5 Packards produced between 1916 and 1940
- At least 5 cars that have won AACA National shows
- 5 imported sports cars
- 3 Cadillacs and a LaSalle
- 3 “special” Buicks
- 2 “rare” Oldsmobiles
At least 20 of the vehicles need some or total restoration, Mack added.
Vehicles can be inspected Friday, December 1, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the museum location.
“Because of limited space,” Mack added, “sale-day admission is by bidder badge only.”
Vehicles will be sold in alphabetical order, starting with a 1928 Buick roadster and ending with a 1952 Rolls-Royce, he said.
“We are proud that the court selected our company to facilitate this auction, and the lots may be viewed on our website,” Mack said.
