Last weekend's classic car auction in Toronto was a bigger success than anyone anticipated...even the folks at CCP Auctions.
The results from the sale have been released and an astonishing 80 percent of all vehicles crossing the block sold. In addition the largest collection of automotive memorabilia ever presented at the auction also generated the biggest dollar figures in the history of the auction.
Some of the highlight vehicles sold for big bucks, including a brand new Dodge Challenger Hellcat which sold for a healthy $79,200. A 63 slit window Corvette ( the only year the split window was produced ) sold for $105,600. A beautifully restored 63 Corvette Roadster Convertible was sold for $100,100.
There was also a 2010 Aston Martin which produced a selling price of $93,500, and a 2000 Rolls Royce Sillver Seraph V12 Sedan that someone picked up for $91,850. A 1956 Ford Sunliner topped out and sold for $88,000.
It was an exciting three day sale that attracted a big crowd of spectators, buyers, and sellers.
The CCP Auction events are the largest in Canada. They are held each spring and fall at the International Centre in Mississauga and mark the beginning and end of the outdoor car show season in Canada. For many it's not just a tradition it's a ritual.
Record sell through, and a new record for single day sales. Not a bad weekend for CCP Auctions, and for the car enthusiasts who packed the International Centre.
Also...a 1938 Ford Deluxe Coupe...the auction's catalog cover car sold for $38,500.
