Car Auctions Aren’t Just For Cars Anymore

We’ve all seen automobilia join the ranks of car auctions around the world and for good measure, they are after all pieces of automotive history. However, now famous auction houses are piggybacking on their successful auto auctions with items entirely outside the automotive world and two such can’t miss items at Mecum Glendale are this 1954 Chris-Craft and 1968 Fender Telecaster.

 

Though fit for the sea you wouldn’t necessarily know this 17-foot Chris-Craft Sportsman was a boat from the description alone. Featured in Chris-Craft Boat Magazine, this ’54 is powered by a 109hp 6-cylinder Graymarine engine that’s from 2000. From 1953 to 1961 the iconic boat maker made 2,848 of these bestsellers and with a new paint job just las year this one is as good looking as new.

 

While the Chris-Craft may seem like a boat fit for a king, this 1968 Fender Elvis Presley Rosewood Prototype Telecaster was owned by The King. That’s right, this is one of the six rosewood guitars made by the famed guitar manufacturer and this one was gifted to Elvis. An incredibly rare guitar the one owned by Beatle George Harrison sold for over $400,000 so this Elvis owned example certainly will impress as well when it hits the auction block.
