Looks like Barrett-Jackson and Mecum have some new competition. Namely, a company called Wheeler Auctions.
Wheeler Auctions Inaugural Event
Based in Missouri, Wheeler Auctions specializes in antique, pre-war, classic, muscle and exotic automobiles. It offers some of the lowest-selling commissions (5% with reserve and 3% without reserve) in the industry.
The company’s first auction, limited to 300 lots, will take place June 1-3 in Norman, Oklahoma at the Embassy Suites Ballroom. Here’s a peek at some of the offerings:
Cool cars crossing the block include a 2005 Ford GT, 2008 Ferrari F430 Scuderia with just 397 miles, 2008 Ferrari F430 6 Speed Manual, 2016 Jaguar F- Type Project 7, Frame-Off 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 R-Code Super Cobra Jet 4 Speed, and a pair of NCRS Top Flight Big Block Mid-Year Corvettes.
Other highlights include a No Reserve 1950 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible, a No Reserve Chevrolet Camaro Yenko, and a 2008 Super performance Jack Roush Fuel-Injected Motor Cobra. A large number of the lots will be sold without reserve.
“Speed Digital is excited to partner with Wheeler Auctions for their inaugural auction. Because of Brian’s experience and relationships in the industry and his marketing savvy, we’re confident their first sale will be successful,” stated Neil Pitt, CEO for Speed Digital, a technology group that’s focused on the classic and collector car industry.
