AUBURN, IN.- Auctions America will lift the gavel on a rare, freshly restored 1963 Shelby 289 Cobra when its highly anticipated Fort Lauderdale sale returns to South Florida, March 14-16, 2014. Coming off the company’s most successful year ever in 2013, this first collector car auction of the 2014 season will feature more than 450 American and European classics and sports cars, Detroit muscle, hot rods and customs, catering to a broad range of automotive tastes and budgets.

With a well-established reputation as South Florida’s premier collector car auction, the Fort Lauderdale sale has always been highly successful—in 2013 the three-day event realized more than 17.5 million in sales with 74 percent of all lots sold. Top sale honors went to an iconic, concours-quality 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “Gullwing” at an outstanding $880,000.

Going into its twelfth year in Fort Lauderdale, Auctions America anticipates another thriving sale for 2014 with early highlights including American classics like a 1930 Ford Model A Pickup (stock restored), a 1946 Chrysler Town and Country Convertible, and a 1936 Auburn 852 Supercharged Phaeton, along with European sports cars such as the 1972 Ferrari Dino 246, and muscle cars featuring a 1970 Boss 302 Mustang, a 1970 Chevelle Super Sport LS6, a 1968 Shelby GT350 Convertible, and a 1965 Shelby GT350.

“Over the years the South Florida area has developed its own car culture—it’s one of the hottest exotic markets in the world,” said Donnie Gold, President of Auctions America. “Whether you are an exotic car lover looking for something extra rare or an American car fanatic looking for a classic you can’t find elsewhere – the Fort Lauderdale auction has something for everyone.”

The auction, March 14-16, at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center is open to the public for a day rate of $10 or a weekend pass of $25. Children 12 and under will receive free admission. For those unable to attend the event in person, Auctions America offers a broad range of remote bidding options including Internet, absentee and telephone bidding, and the auction will stream live online at auctionsamerica.com, providing real-time coverage of the event.
