CARLISLE, PA – For the first time in five months the Carlisle Auctions team loaded 400+ consignments into their auction hall for two amazing days of live classic and collector car sales. The Spring Carlisle Collector Car Auction took over the Carlisle Expo Center in Carlisle, PA April 18-19, and offered up a gallery of impressive collector cars.

The top-selling car came from day two, a Sublime-green 1980 Porsche 911. This sleek-looking and eye-popping sports car hammered at $101,000. The next three within the top five were Corvettes, one from 2023, and two more from 1966. Rounding out the top five was a 1970 Chevelle. Pricing on the top five is noted below and includes all applicable fees.

From the first hammer to fall around noon on April 18 through the final car off the block on April 19, there really was something for everyone with consignments dating back to 1922. One of the more popular aspects of the auction was Thursday’s all-truck hour. This showcase time slot hosted trucks of all types and eras of production. The energy around this hour makes it a part of the annual schedule and this time around, saw some trucks sell for over $50,000.

Save the dates for our next auction, October 3-4 as part of Fall Carlisle. It’s always a good time and I look forward to having everyone back in about 5 months.
