While the auctions in Scottsdale are usually the big winter news within the collector car hobby, the pre-spring events in Florida – in particular the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance – are one of the early signals that warmer weather is on the way over here on the East Coast.
Attending this year’s four-day event (scheduled to kick off on Thursday) is our very own Daniel Strohl, who is also planning to stop at the two auctions in town during the weekend.
Among RM Auctions‘ 114 lots that are scheduled to cross the block on Saturday is lot 182: a 1964 Shelby Cobra USRRC Roadster (CSX 2557) (see image above). Currently, the RM estimate is $1.5 – $1.9 million.
Nearby, Gooding & Company intends to hold their 72-lot auction on Friday, which will include a 1947 Mercury half-ton panel truck (lot 15) offered without reserve.
