Leake Auctions has announced the cancelation of its Tulsa collector car auction scheduled for June 26-27.

“The health and safety of our customers and employees is our first priority,” said Gary Bennett, general manager of the Leake Auction Division. 

“So, instead of an in-person auction, we are focusing all our efforts on our online sales options, including Marketplace-E, where sellers can select ‘Make Offer’ or ‘Buy Now’ options, allowing collectors and enthusiasts to sell and purchase vehicles at any time.”
