Of the top five highest sales during the Spring Carlisle auction held by Carlisle Auctions at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Pennsylvania, a 1969 Shelby Mustang GT350 convertible earned the highest sale at $103,000. Joining the Mustang is two others, a 1969 Mach 1 which earned $82,500 and a 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350 at $75,000.

The auction took place during the Spring Carlisle event which encompassed a swap meet, car corral, and on-site metal fabrication seminars with Pro Metal Shop that served as fundraisers for local animal rescue.

One special guest was Tom Cotter, automotive author and host of Hagerty’s Barn Find Hunter program. Andy Cohen of Junkyard Empire on Velocity also stopped by with his production crew to film segments for an upcoming episode.

Joining the trio of Mustangs in the highest sales of the event is a 1989 Ferrari Testarossa at $90,000 and a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette at $85,000. In total, the five highest selling cars brought in $435,000.

The three-day auction earned a total of $5.7 million sales which makes it the highest earning event to date. Carlisle Auctions attributes the figure to the quality of consignments that crossed the block and said of the 500 that did, 62-percent sold.

The top 5 highest sales are as follows:

  1. 1969 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 Convertible $103,000
  2. 1989 Ferrari Testarossa $90,000
  3. 1966 Chevrolet Corvette $85,000
  4. 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 $82,500
  5. 1966 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 $75,000

Another auction highlight was a 1972 Chrysler Town & Country which earned $55,000. Carlisle Auctions believes it to be a world record price for the particular year, make, and model. According to the auction house, the car offered had low mileage and a single owner history. Additionally, it had all of the “top-of-the-line” features of its time.

Carlisle Auctions plans a stand-alone Summer Sale, set for Jun 16 at the Carlisle Expo Center. The event maintains its “free unless sold” consignment guarantee and will have over 200 spotlight cars cross the block.
