CARLISLE, PA – As the daffodils bloom and the smell of car care products fill the air, it’s a sure sign that springtime is upon us! It also means that Carlisle, Pennsylvania is set to become one of the biggest cities in the state for a period of time in April as part of Spring Carlisle and the Spring Carlisle Collector Car Auction. Spring Carlisle happens April 20-24 at the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds and hosts a collector car automotive flea market and car corral, while next door at the Carlisle Expo Center, Carlisle Auctions offers its spring auction, April 21-22. Both events draw car lovers from around the world!
Carlisle Auctions will bring car buyers and sellers together for two days, while offering 400+ lots spanning decades of production. Bidders and buyers will feast on a variety of options, including classics deserving of a white-glove presentation, while other options include show-worthy gems that can still serve as a daily driver. Muscle, trucks, pre-war classics, and even automobilia; it’s all slated to cross the block April 21-22.
Speaking of trucks, Carlisle Auctions presents its increasingly popular all-truck hour on April 21 at 4 p.m. On this date at this time, dozens of trucks, vans, SUVs, or Jeeps will cross the auction block. Some will be offered at no reserve, assuring they will be re-homed by the end of the day.
Also on April 21, just before the all-truck hour, an all-original 1965 Tiger Sunbeam Convertible will cross the block. The unrestored Sunbeam, a.k.a. “Baby Cobra,” has just 28,000 miles on it and features a set of rare original LAT 9 wheels, mounted on original UniRoyal Tiger Paw redline tires that are used only for show. These tires were put on the car in 1968 since the original owner had to have Tiger Paws on her Tiger. It also comes with a set of modern Mini-lite style wheels and tires.
There are many more gems like this ’65 Tiger Sunbeam and all will be available for bidding in person, on the phone or online as part of the auction. Advanced/online bidding starts April 18 and every registered bidder is eligible to not only bring a guest to the auction, but to attend Spring Carlisle as well.
