Classic Motorcar Holds Grande Salon Auction During Glenmoor Gathering


Classic Motorcar Auctions LLC will hold their 3rd annual Grande Salon Auction Sept. 15-16, 2012 during the Glenmoor Gathering event at the historic Glenmoor Country Club in Canton, Ohio.
The Grande Salon Auction will feature more than 150 antique, classic and sports cars as well as various automotive memorabilia up for bid.  Vehicles will be available for preview on Friday, Sept. 14 from 1-8 p.m.  The auction will start with memorabilia at 10 a.m. Saturday, followed by cars at 12 p.m.  Memorabilia will continue at 10 a.m. Sunday, focusing on radiator mascots and rare auto sales literature.
Among the cars auctioned will be a 1912 Ford Model T prototype six cylinder Speedster once belonging to the legendary Edsel Ford.  The Model T had a place in the Henry Ford Museum until 1985, when it was auctioned and underwent a flawless restoration.  It features a full custom body, wire wheels, custom brass work and a rare, non-production six cylinder engine. 
“We are excited to host our Grande Salon Auction for the third year at Glenmoor Gathering, and we’re already receiving noteworthy consignments from across the country, including this one-of-a-kind six cylinder Ford Speedster that has not been offered at auction in over 30 years,” said President Bob Lichty.  “The vehicles crossing the auction block will range from $15,000 to $150,000, with a few interesting exceptions for attendees.”
Classic Motorcar Auctions will also offer a 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan convertible – one of 1,230 built – that boasts a three-speed manual transmission and is powered by a 336.7 cubic-inch V8 engine.  In addition, a desirable, restored 1930 Indian Scout 101 motorcycle with a 45 cu. inch engine from the John Addams estate will cross the auction block.
General admission for the auction is $10 and parking is free.  The Glenmoor Country Club is located at 4191 Glenmoor Road NW, Canton, Ohio 44718.  Classic Motorcar Auctions LLC is currently accepting consignments for the event.
