$1.1m V16 Cadillac Roadster Leads RM’s Strongest Performance in Hershey



RM Auctions celebrated the annual AACA Eastern Division Fall Meet October 9–10 with its best Hershey performance to date: $14,074,250 in total sales with a very strong 93% of all lots sold. Top seller was John Moir Jr.’s 1930 Cadillac V-16 Roadster at $1,100,000.

Generated by the sale of 157 vehicles and select memorabilia before a packed auction room, results from the two-day sale were driven by numerous spirited bidding contests both in the room and over the phones. Illustrating RM’s international clientele and reflecting the global appeal of the Hershey event, bidders hailed from 17 countries, with more than one quarter representing first-time clientele.

“We’re ecstatic about the results achieved at this year’s Hershey sale,” says Gord Duff, car specialist, RM Auctions. “The incredible prices realized demonstrate RM’s proven success in presenting exceptional single-vendor collections within our catalogue sales, with both the Cars of John Moir and the Jeffrey Day Collection exceeding expectations. Overall, the results reflect the incredible quality presented, along with our ability to match the right product to the right venue. Hershey has certainly topped off what has been a record-breaking year of catalogue sales for our team.”
