Countdown To Auctions America by RM’s Debut In Carlisle

By Auto News Log • April 12th, 2011

– ‘Spring Carlisle’ Auction scheduled April 28 – 30, 2011 in Carlisle, PA
– Star lot: a 1931 Cadillac Model 355 Roadster formerly of famous “Movie World” collection
– Auctions America by RM is still accepting consignments

AUBURN, Ind. − Auctions America by RM will raise the gavel for the first time at the Carlisle Expo Center on Thursday, April 28, kicking off its three-day sale held during Carlisle Events’ 2011 ‘Spring Carlisle’ show. The selection of motor cars on offer represents almost every decade of automobile production, ranging from pre-war classics to late model sports cars, with something suiting almost every collector’s budget.

The star of the show is a lovely, original 1931 Cadillac Model 355 Roadster (estimate: $125,000 – $150,000). This automobile has approximately 74,900 miles reading on the odometer, and believed to be actual from new. It was formerly a part of the famed “Movie World” collection in Ventura, California and James Brucker Sr. used this car for many years as his personal driver (1950-1965).

Although never restored, this 1931 Cadillac Roadster remains beautifully preserved, correct and complete today. As offered, this wonderful classic can be driven and enjoyed exactly as it is.

“We’re pleased with the comprehensive offering of automobiles assembled for our first Carlisle auction, and there’s still time for collectors to join the roster and consign their motor cars to the sale,” states Donnie Gould, President, Auctions America by RM.

Exhibiting the breadth of consignments, other highlights include:

– A completely restored 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible, estimate: $60,000 – $70,000

– An award-winning 1932 Ford Hi Boy, estimate $50,000 – $60,000

– A rare 1974 Maserati Merak, estimate: $30,000 – $35,000
