It's a positive sign for all collectors!
GAA Classic Cars (GAACC) made headlines with a phenomenal 74% closing rate at their November auction, marking an exceptional end to the 2023 season. The auction, held in their 6-acre, climate-controlled facility known as The Automobile Palace, saw a diverse array of vehicles, from pre-war classics to modern collectibles, drawing enthusiasts from across the nation.
While the Chevrolet Ragtop Collection, featuring seven immaculate Chevy convertibles from the '50s and '60s, didn't sell in its entirety, it attracted nearly $1 million in bids, underscoring the collection's exquisite appeal. A 2006 Ford GT in Tungsten Gray Metallic, boasting a scant 90 miles and all available options, led the sales at $556,200, highlighting its rarity as one of 541 in this hue.
Other noteworthy sales included a one-of-a-kind 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass, Chip Foose's handiwork for Tim McGraw's 40th birthday, which fetched $216,000. A sleek 1958 Pro Touring Corvette with distinctive black and silver finishes changed hands for $250,000, courtesy of the Deal Doctor's expertise.
Trucks also had their moment, with a custom, lowered 1972 Chevy C10 in a vibrant green, commanding a price of $100,440. But the event wasn't just about sales; it also raised over $215,000 for charities like Project Road Warrior, Institute for Vision Research, Abolition NC, and Samaritan’s Purse, showcasing GAACC's commitment to giving back.
The next opportunity for classic car aficionados comes in February 2024, with GAA Classic Cars' next auction event. Prospective consignors are encouraged to visit Gaaclassiccars.com to be part of the upcoming automotive history showcase.
