Five Cars To Watch For At Annual Auburn Spring Auction

The annual RM Sotheby’s spring auction officially kicked off yesterday and runs through Saturday, June 1st, but there is still plenty of action left to cross the block in Auburn, Indiana. In fact, the four day auction is so richly packed with cars spanning all genres, these five come from Saturday’s offering alone.

1981 DeLorean DMC-12 – $30,000 – $40,000

Offered with no reserve this original DeLorean has under 22,000 miles which could make it a prime target for any collector or Back to the Future fan. There always seems to be a market for these iconic cars and with the John DeLorean biopic releasing next week it could very well shake up the demand making owning one of these about 9,000 cars even more desirable.

1988.5 Ferrari Testarossa – $100,000 – $120,000

Day Bow Bow. Chik. Chik-chika! Quintessential ’80s this Testarossa has less than 15,700 miles on the odometer and has been owned by the same owner for the last half of its life. It features a 380hp 4.9-liter flat twelve-cylinder engine painted Rosso Corsa red, as iconic as it is eye-catching.

1965 Shelby Cobra 289 “CSX 8001” – $130,000 – $160,000

Having just two owners combine for just about 10,000 miles makes this ’65 Shelby nearly as new as you can get for a over 50-year-old car. It was the first 8000-series 289 produced by Cobra and one of not many to be done so in the aluminum body.

1961 Chevrolet Corvette ‘Fuel-Injected’ – $65,000 – $85,000

While most the public will see just another classic Corvette, those in the know will see a quite desirable fuel-injected Corvette. Featuring a fuel-injected 283cu.-in. V8 this 315hp ‘Vette was one of only 1,468 produced that model year with that engine.

1930 Cord L-29 Convertible Phaeton Sedan – $200,000 – $250,000

Can you imagine the roaring ’20s not being followed by the Great Depression? Likely not something you ponder often, but the American automotive scene would be far different as the prosperous ’20s helped give birth to cars like this Cord only to have the market crash of the ’30s stomp them into oblivion. Well, if you’re a history buff, nostalgic person or just someone looking for a big beautiful collector car this 298cu.-in. Lycoming inline eight-cylinder powered sedan is for you.

Honorable Mention: 1903 Cretors Model C Popcorn Wagon with Custom Trailer – $60,000 – $70,000

Because it sure beats the Jiffy Pop I make on the stove.
