AUBURN, INDIANA (September 10, 2009) – Worldwide Auctioneers held its second auction at company headquarters in Auburn, Indiana, last weekend, presenting a packed and appreciative sales room with a mouth watering selection of over 80 fine automobiles.
The evening’s high sales went to a peerless 1942 Chrysler Windsor Town & Country “Barrel Back” Nine Passenger Station Wagon, which sold for a record breaking $440,000, and a multiple award winning 1937 Packard Twelve Convertible Sedan, hammering sold for $344,000. Another glamorous Woody, the exquisitely presented 1947 Chrysler New Yorker Town & Country Convertible, also made history, fetching an outstanding $264,000.
“Our stated objective in launching The Auburn Auction was to bring the great cars back to Auburn, said Rod Egan, Managing Partner & Chief Auctioneer. We are proud once again, to have delivered on that promise and indeed to have broken another couple of records in the process. We at Worldwide are above all else, passionately car people and we look forward to The Auburn Auction continuing to be an integral part of this great Auburn Cord Duesenberg Weekend for many years to come”.
