Calling it the “best ever” results in the history of Carlisle Auctions, the Pennsylvania automotive events and sales company claimed what it believes is an auction record price among the $5.7 million in transactions that took place at the Spring Carlisle auction last week.
The three-day sale at the Carlisle Expo Center put more than 500 consignments across the auction block and posted a 62 percent sell-through rate.
Carlisle believes the $55,000 paid for a low-mileage, one-owner 1972 Chrysler Town & Country station wagon was the most ever at a public auction.
The top sale of the event was the $103,000 paid for a 1969 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 convertible. A 1989 Ferrari Testarossa brought $90,000, a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette went for $85,000. A 1969 Ford Mustang Mach I brought $82,500 and a 1966 Shelby GT350 went for $75,000.
Carlisle’s Summer Sale is scheduled for June 16.
