HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. – On Wednesday, March 15, starting at noon Eastern time, Leland Little Auctions will hold its Spring Collector Vehicles Auction, following a slate of auctions including its largest-ever Rare Spirits Auction and its Signature Spring Auction. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
The Spring Collector Vehicles Auction offers buyers an array of highly sought-after vehicles. A likely top lot is a 1934 Packard Twelve 1107 Dietrich convertible sedan painted in complementary shades of green and estimated at $50-$25,000. A prestigious beauty such as this can typically only be found in museums or elite automotive collections. Leland Little will present this 1934 Packard to be judged at the Amelia Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, March 5.
Other highlights include a 1968 Mercedes Benz 250SL, estimated at $50-$25,000, the beautiful styling of which earned it the nickname Pagoda; and a classically beautiful 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera in Marina Blue. Both of these vehicles hail directly from a respected South Carolina collection.
Other highly collectible vehicles in this auction include a 1974 Ford Bronco in a fantastic shade of orange. If you are looking for a vibrant microcar community to match your collectible car, consider the ever so efficiently designed 1957 BMW Isetta Cabriolet. Despite its diminutive size, in the 1960s the Isetta was used to smuggle nine people, one at a time, from East Germany to West Germany. The example on offer in the March 15 sale, which sports a cheerful red and white-painted chassis, is estimated at $50-$25,000.
