AUBURN, Indiana (November 13, 2014) – The final countdown is underway to Auctions America’s all-new, exclusively online, ‘BidAnywhere’ collector car sale. Held November 21 at auctionsamerica.com and Proxibid.com, this exciting, live virtual auction will be held entirely online, providing collectors with a simple and convenient bidding solution to enable them to participate from anywhere in the world.
Typical of all Auctions America sales, the BidAnywhere auction offers something for everyone. The roster of 65 vehicles spans nearly a century of automotive history and a broad range of price points. From a 1928 Ford Model A “AR” Roadster to a 2012 Ford Mustang Custom Convertible, the offering comprises an eclectic mix of pre- and post-war automobiles, including a great selection of 50s and 60s classics, as well as late model collectibles. For those looking to enter the hobby and toying with purchasing their first collector car, there’s a wonderful selection of entry-level collectibles.
For the pre-war American enthusiast, the sale features an early production and beautifully restored 1928 Ford Model A “AR” Roadster. It joins the previously announced 1937 Cadillac V-16 Custom Imperial Cabriolet, one of just two examples built and reportedly used as the MGM Studios car in period for many stars of the time, including Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh during the filming of Gone with the Wind.
Post-war European examples are highlighted by a striking 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190 SL Roadster, a fantastic driver, ready for the road. Late model collectibles include a very well-maintained 1989 Ferrari 328 GTS, a highly original 1987 Buick GNX,and a “like-new” 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe, finished in the rare and highly desirable Lagoon Green Metallic. In addition to this trio of 1980s poster cars, which have been enjoying increasing popularity, BidAnywhere will also lift the gavel on another icon of its era, a cosmetically restored 1974 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser.
Other unique offerings slated for Auctions America’s BidAnywhere sale include:
- a number of project cars fit for the more ambitious enthusiast. Sought-after models ready for restoration include a legendary 1960 AC Bristol along with a barn-find 1953 Aston Martin DB2 Coupe;
- a 1960 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL hardtop, a desirable accessory for the collector looking to complete their Roadster;
- an incredibly detailed 2011 Slot Mods Custom Slot Car Track, reminiscent of early sports car racing with twisty back roads through scenic hills, and ready for hours of enjoyment; and,
- a 1935 Gar Wood 16-Foot Speedster known as “Miss Conduct”, one of only five surviving Speedster examples from one of the most acclaimed names in classic boating.
