1972 Chrysler Town & Country draws what is believed to be a record price
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.
