Auctions America was established in July 2010, following the purchase of the Auburn Auction Park in Auburn, Indiana, by RM Auctions. Backed by RM, the world’s largest collector car auction house, Auctions America specializes in the sale of American classics, European sports cars, Detroit muscle, hot rods, and customs at auction. Each year, the company hosts an established calendar of events in some of the country’s leading automotive destinations, including Auburn, Indiana, the Classic Car Capital of America; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and Southern California.
Led by collector car veteran and company President, Donnie Gould, Auctions America is founded on the principles of conducting business with honesty, integrity and transparency by providing personalized and professional service in all areas of the auction process. The company boasts an expert team of full-time car specialists offering more than 180 years of combined experience buying, selling, racing and restoring collector vehicles, making them uniquely qualified to advise on all aspects of the hobby. Auctions America’s specialists are joined by a skilled and dedicated client services team that assists with arrangements from bidder registration to accommodations and vehicle titles to transportation. This attention to clients’ needs delivers an unmatched experience from start to finish.
The company’s corporate headquarters in Auburn, Indiana is steeped in tradition. Regarded as the Classic Car Capital of America, Auburn is home to the world-famous Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum and annual Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival, which welcome tens of thousands of collector car enthusiasts each year. The historic 235-acre Auburn Auction Park, one of the largest venues of its kind in the United States, is also well-known among enthusiasts for hosting two auction events per year, one in the spring and one in the fall. The fall event coincides with the celebrated ACD Festival, making for an ultimate collector car weekend for motoring enthusiasts. Since purchasing the Auburn Auction Park, Auctions America has invested more than $2 million in renovations and upgrades to enhance the facilities and restore the park to its former glory.
Private and Estate Sales
Following in the footsteps of its parent company RM Auctions, Auctions America has quickly carved a reputation as an auction house of choice for private and estate collection sales, hosting standalone, single-vendor auctions, as well as presenting collections as featured highlights at its established events. In 2014, Auctions America presented the John Scotti Collection of Montreal at its Auburn Spring sale, a diverse group of 400 vehicles offered entirely without reserve. Auctions America also lifted the gavel on the world famous Littlefield Collection in Portola Valley, California in July 2014. A truly unprecedented event, the sale demonstrated Auctions America’s ability to provide effective, turnkey solutions for private sales, as well as the company’s ability to adapt to service different segments of the collector vehicle market.
2015 Auction Success
Auctions America has experienced a tremendous year so far, highlighted by impressive performances and attendance at all venues, as well as the addition of the upcoming Hilton Head Island event to the auction calendar.
The 2015 season got off to a great start in Florida, when Auctions America’s Fort Lauderdale sale realized more than $21.3 million in sales, highlighted by the highly anticipated Shorty Mustang for $511,550. The success continued in Auburn at both the Auburn Spring and Auburn Fall events, with a record 85,000 enthusiasts flocking to the auction park in September to set a new attendance record for the fall event. In July, Auctions America returned to Southern California, this time to a new venue – the historic Barker Hangar – where the company replicated its success in the Southern California market with an impressive $15.4 million in sales.
