Silver Auctions came to Portland In April with a complement of 94 cars consigned to be sold at their auction.
This one day auction brought some very unique and nice cars to the EXPO Center. Mitch Silver said vehicles offered were sold or were high bid to a total dollar figure of $1,561,000. A respectable figure. They managed a 43% sell through when the dust was settled.
There were a lot of really cool cars. One beautiful Dodge Coronet bid to $70,000 but didn’t sell. Yes, it had a HEMI. I think I’ve seen rare cars like this sell for bigger bucks so no wonder the reserve wasn’t met. Speaking of rare cars. There was a 1970 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, SS454/AT/AC car, well equipped and nice looking. It too didn’t meet the reserve with a high bid of $13,000. I don’t know what the reserves were but either of these two cars are good examples of what was available. Personally, I love to own either of them.
The next Silver Auction will be in Missoula, Montana on May 7th. Find out more @ www.silverauctions.com or call 1-800-255-4485 to learn more.
