The most recent GAA Classic Cars Auction, staged this past week in Greensboro, North Carolina, sold 499 of 624 vehicles on the docket for an impressive 81 percent sell-through rate.

21-window VW brings $95,000

Another noteworthy sale was a 1964 Volkswagen 21-window bus that brought $95,000.

“We upped our number of vehicles from 550 to 650 and had an outstanding sale, said Jerry Barker, GAA Classic Cars general manager. “At 81 percent, this is to date our strongest sale and we attribute that to the large number of no reserve vehicles and the quality of those vehicles.”

Both of the top-selling Ferraris were offered at no reserve.

GAA Classic Cars next auction is scheduled for November 1-3.
