Carlisle Auction Reduced to One Day Event

by Keith Cornett on August 22, 2007

Just about everybody that has a passing interest in Corvettes is familiar with the Corvettes at Carlisle show held annually in Pennsylvania this time of year. For the last few years, Dana Mecum has been at the helm of organizing and gaveling the auction. However earlier this year the Carlisle events team announced that they would be taking the Corvette auction duties in-house. Today I spoke with Auction Manager Dennis Baish about this weekend’s event. Dennis confirmed what I heard that the actual auction will happen on Saturday only while Friday night has been reserved for a sellers reception. The auction website currently has 78 Corvettes consigned and Dennis believes they are on track for 100 Corvettes this weekend. While this number is down from the 160 quoted on the website, the quality of Corvettes that have been consigned appears quite good. Many times the measure of a good Corvette auction is the number of 1967 Corvette Big Blocks available. The consignment list shows six 1967 Corvettes and at least four of them are 427′s. Perhaps the most exciting Corvette available so far is a 1963 Z06 Big Tanker Coupe which should be one of the top Corvettes sold this weekend. We’ll have more on this Corvette later this week. Do you have a Corvette to sell? Remember what Terry Michaelis from Proteam Corvettes said earlier this week: Be a smart seller by picking high profile events to sell your Corvette. The fees for consigning your Corvette at the Carlisle auction appears to be quite reasonable for such a high quality Corvette-only auction. Buyers pay $100 registration fee with a 5% buyers commission added to the sale of any Corvette. Sellers pay a $250 or $400 consignment fee depending on the time the Corvette is scheduled to cross the block. Sellers also pay 6% for cars selling with a reserve or 5% for no reserve cars.
