Auction does 60 percent sell-through with $5 million in sales

Carlisle Auctions two-day collector car auction this past weekend at the Carlisle Expo Center in Pennsylvania posted more than $5 million in sales with a 60 percent sell-through rate. The sale was part of the Spring Carlisle car-show and swap-meet weekend.

“Something unique crossed the block at nearly every turn, including many one owner and/or low mileage consignments,” the auction company said.  “There were even a few that were donated, with $3,400 going to the Carlisle branch of the Salvation Army.”
