1931 Ford Model A Deluxe Roadster

Henry Ford, without a doubt, most famous for his Model T, had a rather unusual manner in following the alphabet. Somewhat logically, the Model A was first to arrive in 1903. The Model B, C and F followed in 1904, the Model E in 1905, the Model K and N in 1906, and the Model R and S in 1908. The first Model T followed later that year. Ford however, repeated the Model A designation signifying a new beginning at Ford Motor Company with the introduction of his new car for the 1928 model year. Henry Ford did not want to stop producing the Model T; rather he was forced to do so by rival Chevrolet who was building far sprightlier cars. Thus, the new Model A was introduced to the public on December 2, 1927. Newspaper accounts told of nearly ten percent of the American public having gone to view the new car. Much more complex than the Model T that preceded it, the Model A was comprised of 6,800 parts compared to its simpler predecessor which was made up of 5,000 parts. The ruggedly constructed Model A featured Ford’s first installation of safety glass in all windows. Production continued through 1932 when Ford introduced its new V-8. Fast forward to 1931 when nearly 4 million Model A’s had already been produced. And, in typical Ford fashion, the company resisted making dramatic model changes

from year-to-year. Ford preferred to make most of its changes on a running basis. As a result, the 1931 was little changed from 1930 model. Powering the Model A was a 40hp L-head 4-cylinder engine and three-speed sliding gear-type transmission with floor shifter. Mechanical brakes were at all four wheels and transverse leaf springs supported solid axles front and rear. The tidy package sat upon a 103.5� wheelbase. Soaring in popularity was the Deluxe Roadster, Model 40 (D1) which was introduced in the summer of 1930. Sales accounted for 52,997 units, nearly 10 times the number of Standard Model Roadsters. And, no wonder. The Deluxe Roadster cost $475.00, just $45.00 more than the Standard. For the extra money, buyers got a rumble seat, cowl lights, genuine leather front seat in beige, rumble seat in matching artificial leather, brown floor carpet, and a special low windshield and wind wings. A rearmounted spare remained standard and the side-mounted spare had to be ordered as an extra cost accessory.

Based on photo documents in the consigner’s file, this Model A was restored in 1955. It was shown at the first MARC (Model A Restorer’s Club) National Meet that year at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan where it was named winner of the best Model A at the show while in the ownership of Russell J. Gerrits of Chicago, Illinois. It remains in remarkable condition attesting to both the quality of the restoration and the car the car has received in the ensuing years. It presents surprisingly well for a restoration that is now 60 years old!. Offered at no reserve.

1991 Corvette ZR-1

During 1986, General Motors acquired Group Lotus, the UK based engineering and performance car manufacturing firm. The Corvette team of engineers approached Lotus with the idea of developing the world’s fastest production sports car, based on the C4 generation platform. With some help from GM, Lotus designed a new engine to fit in place of the L98 V8. The result was the GM named LT-5, an all aluminum block with 4 overhead cams and 32 valves producing 375 hp. Lotus also helped develop upgraded braking and steering systems to keep up with the performance the LT-5 produced. It was the intent of GM, to make the ZR-1 not just a muscle car, but a world class road racing performer. Due to the complexity in assembling the advanced engine, GM contracted Mercury Marine to build the motors and ship them to Bowling Green, KY where the cars were built.

HIGHLIGHTS • Rare color combination • 712 original miles! • All original documentation and books

The ZR-1 went on sale in 1990 and only as a coupe. However, it was different from the standard model by incorporating a wider tail section, 11” inch wide rear wheels and squared taillights. The ZR-1 was priced, for its time, at an astonishingly high $58,995.00, nearly twice the amount of the base Corvette. Although the ZR-1 was extremely quick, 0-60 in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 180+mph, the performance value was matched by its robustness. On March 1, of 1990, the ZR-1 set seven international speed records including the world record for endurance, covering 4,221 miles at an average speed of 175.885 mph. Presented is a stunning white on red 1991 Corvette ZR-1 with just 712 documented original miles. With original window sticker, all books, and delivery information, this ZR-1 is as new as if it was on the showroom floor. A certain “must have” for any Corvette collector.

1934 Ford Pick-up Due to low demand, 1934 was the last year for the Ford four-cylinder engine and open-cab trucks. The US economy was improving and more expensive trucks were becoming available. Ford’s V8 had grown so popular that the four-cylinder engine was fazed out as was the roadster open cab. Presented is an original 1934 Ford V8 Pick Up Truck. From the Paul Hedburn estate, the truck was in the process of a bottom-end engine rebuild at the time of his death. The engine will require completion of the rebuild but is complete. A more original rust-free example would be hard to find or duplicate.

1960 Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan

The Chevrolet Impala was built by General Motors’ Chevrolet division starting in 1958. Named for the South African antelope, it was Chevy’s most expensive passenger car through 1965. It had become the best-selling full size model in the United States, competing with the Ford Galaxie and Plymouth Fury.

engines included the big block 348 cu in motor generating 315 hp.

Ed Cole, Chevrolet’s chief engineer, designed the Impala as a “prestige car” within the reach of the average American.

The three-taillight arrangement was reinstated with the air intake front nostril intakes being removed. Impalas were the top selling American model with over 490,00 units sold.

The second generation Impala was designed and built for 1959-1960 models. Radically reworked, it shared body shells with the lower-end Buicks, Oldsmobiles, and Pontiacs. The roof was three inches lower and the car was two inches wider riding on an X-frame chassis. Its tail fins protruded outward, rather than upward. Chevrolet replaced the triple taillight with a single “teardrop” style on each side. It was available in four-door hardtop and four-door sport sedan, as well as a sport coupe and convertible. Base engine was the 283 cu in V8 producing 185 hp. Optional

HIGHLIGHTS • Completely original survivor • 16,725 original miles • Rare sport sedan

1960 models sported a more conservative look, being toned down in styling as designers and marketers realized that fins and excessive chrome had run its course.

Presented is an all-original 16,725 mile 1960 Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan in Suntan Copper. Equipped with the 283 cu in 185 hp V8 engine and two-speed automatic transmission, this rare sport sedan is visually stunning with its huge pillar free wrap around rear window and “flying wing” roof line. This time warp original Chevrolet has had just two Colorado owners from new and is the lowest mileage model on the market today.

1964 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray

The C2 second generation Chevrolet Corvette, also known as the Stingray, was produced from 1963 to 1967. Designed and engineered by Ed Cole, Bill Mitchell, Zora Arkus-Duntov and Larry Shinoda, the Stingray was inspired from the Jaguar E-type, the radical Stingray racer and the Mako Shark design study. The 1963 Corvette Stingray not only had a totally new design but also improved handling. The new model was somewhat lighter than the prior 1962 design, which explained faster acceleration despite the same engine output. With production numbers nearly equal between the convertible and coupe, nearly half the top-down versions were ordered with a removable hardtop. All 1963 versions saw 327 cu in engines with varying horsepower ratings.

The 1964 Stingray made only evolutionary changes including front coil springs that went to variable rate, simulated air intakes removed from the hood, and a simulated wood steering wheel. Although drivetrain choices remained as the 63 but with optional higher output ratings coming in carbureted form of 365 hp and the fuel injected model at 375 hp. Presented is a 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster in one of the most beautiful color combinations of black with red interior. The interior, despite being totally original is like new and the paint is gleaming with a very few minor flaws. Powered by the 327 cu in 300 hp motor with 4 speed transmission, this classic roadster also comes with factory hard top. A high end driver quality Sting Ray offered at a fair and reasonable reserve; included are the factory wheels and tires.

1934 Ford V-8 Station Wagon

Henry Ford had the foresight . . . and the capital to purchase the town of Pequaming in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and along with it, the half million acres of forest surrounding it. From these forests came the maple framing and birch paneling needed for Ford’s new station wagon. Up to this point, Ford had been buying lumber from the mills on the peninsula for the framing on his Model T’s, but he opened his own Iron Mountain sawmills about 1922 under the Michigan Land, Lumber and Iron Company in the Menominee River Valley. At first, Iron Mountain’s mills turned out raw lumber. Then woodworkers made components which were shipped to Briggs and Murray in Detroit and later to Raulang in Cleveland for assembly. This changed when Ford opened his own station wagon assembly line in the fall of 1936 at Iron Mountain. The V-8 Station Wagon designated Type 860, was Ford’s most expensive car at $660.00. Weighing in at 2,635 pounds, it was constructed of basswood, birch, and

maple cut and trimmed at Iron Mountain with final finishing at the Murray Corp. Power was supplied by Ford’s 85hp 221cid “Flathead” V-8 and a three-speed sliding gear transmission. All wagons rode a 112-inch wheelbase and featured rod-actuated mechanical brakes on all four wheels. Suspension is rather simple with a solid front axle and a ¾ floating rear axle along with transverse front and rear leaf springs. The new Fords were introduced on December 6, 1933. Styling changes were minimal as most of the changes were mechanical. Under the hood, the V-8 included a Stromberg carburetor and a newly designed A.C. air cleaner for easier breathing. Combined with a redesigned intake manifold, the engine was smoother running and produced an additional 10hp. Aiding in the smooth operation was Ford’s first fullycounterbalanced cast alloy crankshaft which contributed to a substantial reduction in vibration. Open-skirted pistons, a unitized valve assembly, new thermostats, and a new fuel pump also enhanced the updated design.

In total, Ford built 2,905 V-8 wagons for 1934 as well as another 95 equipped with four-cylinder engines. Wagons were not classified as Standard or Deluxe as they were actually considered to be part of Ford’s commercial vehicle line. As such, they were a curious mix of trim items such as painted horns but bright cowl lights as well as painted windshield trim. Interior were trimmed in black-brown imitation leather and side curtains were provided for weather protection as there were no roll-up windows. Offered at no reserve.

1958 Mercedes Benz 190 SL The Mercedes Benz 190 SL is a two-door luxury roadster produced from 1955 to 1963. Referred to internally as the W121, it was first show to the public at the New York Auto Show of 1954. Available with matching hardtop, the 190 SL was an attractive, more-affordable alternative to the Mercedes 300 SL, sharing the same basic styling, engineering and fully independent suspension. The 190 SL, however, did not use the tubular space frame of the 300 model, instead being built on a shortened monocoque chassis. Powered by a 1.9 liter 120 HP straight 4 SOHC engine, it was fitted with twin choke Solex carburetors. Top speed was 106 mph. Presented is a nice driver quality car, collector owned for over 20 years. An older restoration in the most popular of color combination of White with Red interior, the 190 SL retains the natural patina and presence of a 56 year- old classic sports car. The 190 SL market has exploded with restored cars selling for as much as $300,000. However, still a bargain when compared to the market for the “Big Brother” 300 SL with examples selling in the 1.5-2 million dollar range.

1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1

The Mach 1 performance package was an option on Mustangs introduced in August of 1968 for 1969 models. As part of a Ford heritage program, the Mach 1 package returned in 2003 as a new high performance option on the SN95 platform. Visual connections to the 1969 model were incorporated to pay homage to the original. This generation was discontinued after 1974 to make room for the fifth-generation Mustang. One of the most recognizable features of the 1971-73 Mustang Mach 1 is the NACA hood with dual scoops. In 1973, the optional big block 429 Super and Cobra Jet motors were dropped from the line up due to SAE net horsepower calculations. 1973 was also the year that produced the fewest number of Mach 1 Mustangs produced.

1954 Jaguar XK 120 Drophead Coupe

The XK 120 was launched in open seat roadster form at the 1948 London Motor Show. The initial show car was nearly identical to the finished production model. The roadster caused such a sensation that design boss and Jaguar founder, William Lyons, put it into production in 1948 with the first car going to American actor Clark Gable in 1949. Powered by a double overhead cam in-line six cylinder engine with two SU carburetors, the advanced engine produced 160 hp. Initially introduced as an open two-seater (OTS) roadster, a Fixedhead Coupe would be introduced in 1951 with a more luxurious Drophead Coupe convertible being produced in 1953. In its time

the XK 120 was the fastest production car in the world reaching speeds of over 120 mph, hence the model name. It would win races around the world and be the development model for Jaguar’s forthcoming success at the 24 HRS of Lemans. Offered is an exquisite 1954 Jaguar XK 140 Drophead Coupe finished in gleaming black exterior with tan Connolly hides and Wilton Wool carpeting.

1955 Austin Healey 100m Tribute

The Austin Healey 100 was built from 1953-1956. Developed by Donald Healey to be produced in-house by Healey’s small company in Warwick, England and based on the Austin A90 Atlantic. Initially shown at the 1952 London Auto Show, the design impressed Leonard Lord, managing director of Austin. Ford struck a deal with Healy to build it in quantity with bodies made by Jensen and mechanical components by Austin’s Longbridge factory. The car was renamed the Austin Healey 100. The “100” added to represent the top speed the car was capable of, much like the Jaguar XK 120 of the same period. The first 100s or BN1s were equipped with 2660 cc motors producing 90hp through 3 speed with overdrive transmissions. Girling brakes were fitted around all corners with independent front coil spring suspension. Tested by Motor magazine in 1953 at 103 mph top speed and an elapsed time of 11.2 seconds to 60 mph, the 100 was a top performing sports car for its time.

In 1955, a high performance “M” model was introduced, with larger carburetors, a cold air box intake, high lift camshaft and 8.1:1 pistons. It produced 110 hp at 4500 rpm. The front suspension was stiffened and the bonnet gained louvers for cooling. Approximately 70% of all 100 Ms were painted in two color configuration. In all 640 100 Ms were built by the factory. The 100 M’s modification components were, however, available to Austin Healey Dealers in order to retrofit the standard BN1 to 100M specifications. Offered from the Paul Andrews collection is an “M” retrofitted 1955 Austin Healey BN1 100. Retrofitted at the time of the recent restoration of the car, the renowned California Healey specialist added all the “M” kit options as well as rebuilding the engine and suspension to original “M” specification. The body was painted in the correct Healey blue with white coves and wheels painted silver. Absent the leather hood strap, the car is an exact duplicate to the original 100M. The Healey presents a rare opportunity to own a true “tribute” to the original at a fraction of the cost of a factory built version.

1917 Indian Model 51 T Deluxe Bicycle Most people may know that the first motorcycles were little more than bicycles with motors. But few know that manufacturers actually used bicycles to sell their motorcycles. Indian’s history with bicycles actually began in 1889. That is when the Hendee Manufacturing Company would eventually become the Indian Motorcycle Company, was formed to build bikes. The company didn’t start building motorcycles until 1902. To make way for the growing motorcycle demand, the bicycle production was farmed out to the Davis Sewing Machine Company of Dayton, Ohio who also built the HarleyDavidson bicycles of that period. The idea was for the bicycle to look as much like the motorcycle as possible in order to draw young boys into the motorcycle shops in hopes for a future motorcycle purchase. Offered is unquestionably the finest restored model 51T in existence today. With stunning attention to detail and quality, this Indian bicycle represents the beginning of the legendary motorcycle brand. A must have for any bicycle or motorcycle collector seeking the very “best of the best.” Another priceless piece from the collection of C. Thomas Mullen.

1913 Indian Model 30.50 Motorcycle The beautifully restored Model 30.50 Indian Motocyle was acquired from John and Peggy Culbertson of the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area in 1998. John was a recently retired banker, and Peggy, a retired school teacher. By meeting these two individuals as the result of an ad placed in a national Antique Motorcycle publication, we not only ended up owning a truly historic “Indian Red” motocycle, but also became wonder and lasting friends of the Culbertsons. Over the years, my wife Ginny and I would show our motocycle at the Hershey meet and also the prestigious Franklin Mint auto show near Philadelphia. Each year John and Peggy would take the PA turnpike from Pittsburgh to also share in the event. Peggy had a very personal and unique attachment to the old machine and would look forward to sharing her cherished memories and knowledge with the many inquisitive spectators visiting the show. In 1895, Peggy’s father, Mr. Arthur D Seib was born and raised on the farm of a notable and affluent businessman in Erie, Pa who had intended to someday use his country estate as a retreat throughout his golden years. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, these plans of solitude never came to fruition. Because of this occurrence, Arthur’s father, Peter Seib was retained to manage and oversee the spacious complex which would also allow the Seib family to live within and care for the property. During the year 1913, and with the arrival of early motorcycles swiftly becoming the trend, 18 year old Arthur Seib decided that he wanted a new Indian Motocycle so as to provide transportation between the farm and his place of employment. Indian was one of the top contenders among the many motorcycle manufacturers of the time. Motorcycles were thought to be somewhat more advanced and more

tested than automobiles of that early era, not to mention their lower and more affordable price. With the addition of a side car and rear mounted saddle, a young family of four could take part in experience this new and exciting age of motorized transportation. Returning to the year 1913: With much deliberation on his behalf, young Arthur decided that he would purchase a new Indian motocycle from the local Indian dealer LeJeal C&M Works, then located at 1721-23 Sassafras Street in downtown Erie. The model 30.50 single cylinder Indian which he wanted, however, was not in dealer stock at the time and one would need to be ordered from it’s make, the Hendee Manufacturing Company located in Springfield, Massachusetts and then shipped via rail to Erie, PA. On April 4th, 1913, Arthur signed an Agreement of Sale and made a deposit of $25.00 to the LeJeal C&M Works so that his new $200.00 motocycle could be placed on order. The Indian was ordered and was eventually shipped secured in a huge wooden crate from Hendee Manufacturing addressed direct to Arthur himself. With much anxiety regarding the long awaited arrival of his new Indian Red motocycle, Arthur now had the stirring task of unpacking and revealing the wonderful 380 pound machine. Upon opening the crate, the motocycle was found to be completely assembled with the exception of the handlebars, saddle and pedals. After painstakingly removing the new Indian and hastily paging through the operator’s and assembly manual, the new items were installed. Both gasoline and engine oil were added to their appro-

24 www.MorphyAuctions.com • 877-968-8880

priate tanks, and at last, the engine was primed and started. With the gathering of family and all eagerly waiting for his departure, young Arthur proudly mounted his newly purchased motocycle and cautiously proceeded down the farm’s familiar and twisty dirt lane, while at the same time, carefully increasing his speed and briskly dashing away. After several days of riding his new Indian, Arthur soon realized that some much need accessories would be in order for the motocycle. Those items would comprise of a front mounted acetylene headlamp, a tire pump, a rubber bulb type air horn and a rear tire chain for tackling the muddy roads of those times. These items were later purchases through LeJeal. Arthur cherished and road his motocycle into the year 1916, about the time America was entering World War I. The motocycle, still wearing its Pennsylvania license plate number 9775, was then put into storage with the large farm house. It would remain their until the late 1920’s, when at that time, Mr. Seib would leave the farm complex and move to his new home in Erie. His old Indian companion, of course, would accompany him. MANY YEARS LATER: John Culberson, after meeting and eventually marrying Peggy Seib in 1955, developed a great and inquisitive interest in the very old motorcycle which now occupied a spot in his father-in-laws basement. Therefore, the authenticated and appealing history of the 1913 Indian as it bad been passed on to John by Mr. Seib. Peggy had mentioned to John that the old motocycle had been such a permanent fixture in her family’s basement for so many years, that she rarely gave it any thought. I had always been stored in a dimly lighted corner of the furnace room seldom attracting anyone’s attention. Prior to Mr. Seib’s death in 1985, John and Peggy persuaded Peggy’s father to reassemble the old Indian, as certain parts had been carefully removed over the years and stored in boxes. A colorful note to this story isthat some time after the motocycle was put into storage, Mr. Seib decided to build a garden cultivator using the very famous 4 HP Hedstrom engine from the motocycle as the power source for his novel creation!

After reassembling the various parts to the motocycle, the old Indian was now totally complete as originally manufactured. To this day, the signed and dated April 4th, 1913 Agreement of Sale, Original Operator’s Manual, Indian Tool Kit, Tire Pump, Rubber Bulb Type Horn, Rear Tire Chain and Original Photographs of Mr. Seib astride his new Indian are still with the motocycle. Putting aside and saving these items for so many years was quite commonplace of Mr. Seib’s generation. Some time after the death of Mr. Seib in 1985, John and Peggy decided that the old motocycle should be professionally restored in memory of Peggy’s father, and that this task should be a family endeavor. After two and a half years of enduring effort and determination of acclaimed Indian Historian and Restorer Mr. Sylvester Boyacheck of Union City, Pennsylvania, and with the support of innumerable specialty shops throughout the country, along with friends and family, the rebirth of Mr. Seib’s 1913 Indian Motocycle had definitely become a reality. Mr. Seib’s Indian is the only motorcycle to ever grace the cover of the AACA’s bimonthly magazine. July/August 2014. What more can be said than this is the most documented and finest 1913 Indian Motocyle that exists in the world today. Words cannot describe the quality and detail of the restoration. It is simply the “best of the best!”

1904 Pope

The Pope empire had its beginnings in Boston shortly after the Civil War. The Pope Manufacturing Company was established in 1876 by Colonel Albert A. Pope for the production of small patented articles. A bicycle of its own design followed in 1877; however it was manufactured by the Weed Sewing Machine Company in Hartford, Connecticut. Weed was taken over by Pope in 1880 and by 1899 Pope created the America Bicycle Company which consolidated some 45 bicycle manufacturers. Pope was in the bicycle business in a big way while laying the fortune for what was to follow. Its first automobile called the Columbia (the trade name of the original Pope bicycle) arrived in 1901. It was produced in collaboration with the Electric Vehicle Company with other Pope vehicles to follow including the Pope-Toledo, Pope-Robinson, the Pope-Tribune, and the Pope-Waverly. The only car to be built in the firm’s hometown was the Pope-Hartford and testing of the prototype began in the summer of 1903. The Pope-Hartford debuted at the New York Auto Show in January 1904. First to market was the Model A Runabout designed by Colonel Pope’s nephew, Harry Melville Pope. It was immediately followed by the Model B with Rear Entrance Tonneau. Both shared a 78-inch chassis and 10hp single-cylinder engine with a spur gear transmis-

sion with two forward speeds plus reverse and single chain drive. The Model A was priced at $1,050.00 and the Model B at $1,200 – both priced well-above established competitors such as the Ford Model A and the Curved Dash Oldsmobile. Pope-Hartford built just 146 cars in 1904. Production of cars continued until 1914 with the firm never producing more than several hundred cars per year. The four-passenger wood-bodied car sat on a frame of angle steel while weighing in at 1,600 pounds. It was available in red, blue, olive green, and sage green with yellow gear, if desired. To aid entry and exit, the steering wheel includes a tilting post. This incredible car was once part of the extensive Henry Austin Clark collection. A letter to Fred Woods of Evergreen Park, Illinois from Clark dated December 3, 1962 documents the car’s age as a 1904 model. Clark’s bill of sale to Woods dated November 28, 1962 for $3,000.00 is included as are an original factory brochure and period articles about Pope-Hartford automobiles from the January 16 and August 6, 1904 issues of The Automobile and the April 27, 1904 Horseless Age. Postcards showing the car from the Clark Museum are also provided. Clark notes in a letter to prior owner Woods that the car is capable of 30mph when touring.

1904 Franklin Model B light Tonneau

The H.H. Franklin Manufacturing Company was the most successful producer of air-cooled automobiles in the United States. The Syracuse, New York firm which produced cars from 1902-1934 was founded by Herbert H. Franklin and John Wilkinson, an engineer, who designed and built cars combining high quality with light weight. Franklins had a distinct reputation for dependability and long life. In more than 30 years of production, the company never made a water-cooled machine and sold more than 150,000 cars in all. As late as 1927, Franklin was still producing a car chassis with wooden side members while using full-elliptic springs in order to give the best possible ride. Franklin, like so many producers of luxury automobiles, became a victim of the Depression ceasing automobile production in 1934. The patents to the Franklin engine would be taken over by the Air-Cooled Motor Corp. whose Syracuse factory specialized in light horizontally-opposed aircraft engines. A six-cylinder Franklin helicopter engine, converted to water cooling, powered the Tucker automobile in 1948. The factory catalog indicates this Franklin to be powered by a 10hp four-cylinder air

cooled engine with vertically arranged cylinders. The planetary transmission features two speeds forward plus reverse, chain drive, steering via a Brown-Lipe worm gear, and hub brakes on the rear wheels. Gas tank capacity is 7.5 gallons. Riding on a 78inch chassis, the frame is composed of angle iron while the body is aluminum with a steel frame. Capacity with the bolt-on rear tonneau is increased to four persons and the price new was a hefty $1,650.00 without top. Franklin celebrated a coast-to-coast motoring record in 1904. L.L. Whitman, who made a career of cross county expeditions, and C.S. Carris of the Franklin Company traveled from New York to California in just a shade under 33 days; this at a time when there was little infrastructure to support such a venture. That year, Franklin produced just 400 vehicles almost doubling production of the prior year. There is no history in the consigner’s file of this car, but there is a postcard postmarked November 28, 1962 presumably picturing the car (post restoration) while it was in possession of noted collector Henry Austin Clark. Numerous black and white photographs in the file might be the car prior to restoration to its current condition.

All models were equipped with an in-line 6 cylinder engine with multi-port fuel injection. The bonnet, trunk lid, door skins and tonneau cover were made of aluminum to reduce weight. The comparatively short and wide chassis, combine with an excellent suspension, powerful brakes and radial tires, gave the 230 SL superb handling for its time.

1909 Packard Model 18 “NA” Town Car In 1909 a decade passed since the first Packard rolled out of the Warren, Ohio factory. Quickly, Packard materialized into one of America’s most prestigious automobiles. Prior to 1909 Packard had been a single-model company, buoyed by its successful Model 30. However, starting with 1909, the firm produced not only the Thirty, but also the new Eighteen. Trucks were added to the lineup, too. In total, Packard produced 3,106 cars and 110 trucks in 1909. The Model 18 introduced in the summer of 1908 (all were considered 1909’s) was the little brother to Packard’s big Model 30. It was offered in five body configurations in an attempt to bring Packard quality to a slightly lower-priced market. Its popular designation was Model 18, but it was officially called the Model NA or 18-NA. Two wheelbases were available including a Runabout on a 102-inch chassis and four additional configurations on a 112-inch chassis. The Runabout and Touring car were both priced at $3,200.00; the Landaulet at $4,900.00; a Limousine at $4,300.00; and a Demi-Limousine which was introduced in December of 1908. Power was supplied by a 326cid T-head four-cylinder. Horsepower was rated at 18 using the French calibration; thus the Model 18 designation. By the end of the sales season, 802 Model 18’s had been sold for 1909.

Another vintage photograph shows the Packard parked in front of a billboard featuring a 1960 Chevrolet Impala Convertible. In all the accompanying photos, the car appears to have been nicely restored. According to John Grundy in his book Packard of the Gauntlets and Goggles Era 18991915, this Packard was first owned by Mrs. Pratt of Pratt & Whitney aircraft fame. She remained in possession of the car until 1940 when it was sold to George Waterman of Providence, Rhode Island. Waterman sold the car to Leonard Davis of Pontiac, Michigan in 1955. He notes that it was Davis, who “did the restoration from a very good original car.” In a bit of conflicting text, he states that Davis was in possession of the car until 1960. He also states that the current owner was in possession since 1958. In either case, this would lead one to believe that the car is an older restoration having been completed prior to 1958 which gives credence to the current patina which has developed over the ensuing years. Painted Brewster Green with black trim and Packard Ivory wheels, the car has the appearance similar to that of a well-cared for original car. Offered at no reserve.

HIGHLIGHTS • One of just 802 Model 18’s prduced for 1909 • Originally owned by Mrs. Pratt of Pratt & Whitney aircraft fame

1905 Rambler Everly Type 1 5-Passenger Surrey Thomas B. Jeffery, an Englishman, who had immigrated to the United States, began the manufacture of bicycles in 1878. It was not long before the Gormully & Jeffery concern was one of the largest manufacturers of bicycles in America with branches in Boston, Washington, and New York, along with its home factory on North Franklin and Pearson Streets in Chicago. By the 1890’s there was even a branch in Coventry, England. The company whose products were marketed under the trade name Rambler was rivaling the Pope-Columbia for the number one position in the American market. Jeffery was a prolific inventor and like many, fascinated by the horseless carriage. He began work on his first in 1897. The awkward vehicle gave way to two vehicles he was ready to show publicly in 1900 – one a Stanhope and the other a runabout – both with tiller steering and twin-cylinder engines. Each was the work of Jeffery’s son Charles and shown at the Chicago International Exhibition and the first New York Auto Show in Madison Garden. That summer, the cars completed a round trip from Chicago to Milwaukee. Following the sudden death of Philp Gormully, Jeffery sold his interest in Gormully & Jeffery (to competitor Pope) and bought a factory in Kenosha, Wisconsin formerly owned by the Sterling Bicycle Company. There he set about building the Rambler automobile. The advanced design featured a front-mounted engine and a steering wheel in place of the tiller, incidentally, mounted on the left side of the vehicle. The elder Jeffery had second thoughts and the one-cylinder Rambler introduced in 1902 had its engine mounted under the seat and a tiller steering the car from the right hand side. His conservatism paid off as 1,500 were produced at $750.00 each in 1902. Only Ransom Olds sold more cars. By 1904, all Ramblers had steering wheels (from the left hand side) and by mid-year 1905 the company discontinued its single-cylinder cars concentrating on higher-pow-

ered, larger, and more expensive cars it introduced in 1904. Rambler produced 3,807 cars in 1905 ranging in price from $1,200.00 to $3,000.00 including this 5-Passenger Surrey which is sits atop a 90-inch wheelbase with power coming from an 18hp twocylinder engine with single chain drive. By mid-year 1905 this would become Rambler’s least expensive offering at $1,200.00. The canopy top was $100.00 additional. The new Ramblers also offered one lever control, a fingertip-operated ring on the steering post taking care of both increases or decreases in speed without the necessity of removing one’s hands from the steering wheel. “Even one armed men are running Ramblers,” the company proudly advertised, “one in Michigan and another in Ohio.” Thomas B. Jeffery died of a heart attack on April 2, 1910 and son Charles took over. Production increased modestly. The big change came with an all-new car in 1914. One of the most respected names in the industry was no more. The new car coming from Kenosha would be called . . . the Jeffery.

1907 Packard Model 30 “U” 7-Passenger Touring Car Packard first introduced its Model 30 in August of 1906. The company claimed that the car underwent more than 50,000 test miles before being introduced to the public. The test car was nicknamed “Gasoline Gus” and in one test, Gus covered 606 miles of Michigan’s sandy roads in one day with NO repairs or adjustments with the exception of replacing one tire. The test run became a world’s record and Packard capitalized on it with a special brochure titled The Flight of the Thirty. Other publicized tests followed with “Hiram” the 1908 test car starting in early 1907. The Model 30 was essentially a refinement of its predecessor, the Model 24 and was advertised as longer, lower, and larger (long before a similar mantra became commonplace). Indeed, it did have a 124-inch wheelbase – 3 inches more than the Twenty Four. Much of the new length was comprised of the longer aluminum hood. Fenders were newly styled and the motor and radiator were moved further back into the chassis for better balance and weight distribution. With the new car also came a new engine. The redesigned T-head four-cylinder featured a 431.9 cubic inch displacement and was rated 30hp @ 650rpm under the French system (more like 50-60hp under the NACC system that would be later adopted). Packard produced 1,403 motorcars for 1907. The original owner of this Packard is unknown. Documented ownership history begins with the presumed second owner, Albert Wood of Wyckoff, New Jersey. Wood transferred ownership on September 30, 1959 to Leonard Davis of Pontiac, Michigan. Davis then sold the car to the current owner on January 6, 1970. Copies of the titles

are included in the sale. Despite having sold the car, Davis was contracted to perform a six-year restoration for the new owner. Following the comprehensive renewal, the Packard received its AACA First Junior award at the 1976 National Spring Meet in Topeka, Kansas and its Senior award four years later in June of 1980. Ironically, it received an AACA Preservation Award in Illinois in September 2011 (31 years later) attesting to the quality of the restoration and care the Packard received in subsequent years. Several photos document the restoration in-progress along with an extensive journal which includes bills and receipts for work completed on the car. These are included in the sale of the vehicle to be passed on to the new owner. It is painted Maroon with gold striping and along with the stunning brass trim, it makes for quite a striking appearance. It will no doubt be the hit of any PAC, HCCA, or AACA meet at which it will appear as well as make for a spectacular Brass Era car perfect for long-distance tours. It runs and drives nicely. Offered at no reserve.

1937 MG SA Tickford Drophead

When SA production got under way in 1936, the Saloon was the only body style available to the general public. MG offered a bare chassis for custom coachbuilders as well as the striking two door, four passenger Tickford Drophead Coupe, with coach work by Salmons and Son, Ltd. Most collectors who encounter an SA are shocked at how vastly different it is from the small, rakish P and T series midgets that define the classic marque. With flowing lines and straight 6 power, the SAs resembled the Jaguar Saloons of their time.

Powered by a Wolsely 18/80 Super 6 derived engine, the SA featured Lockheed hydraulic brakes and 4-speed gear box with wet cork clutch. The engine produced 75 hp from 2288 cc. Offered is a nearly concours quality 1937 MG Tickford Drophead Coupe. A product of a two-year laborious restoration with attention to detail and total originality, this beautiful maroon and black exudes the grace and character of British royalty. From British Car Collector Paul Andrews personal collection.

1939 MG TB Tickford Only 57 MG TBs were manufactured with the exclusive Tickford body designed by Salmons and Sons of Newport Pagnell. This special body featured roll-up windows, a top with inner lining that hid the top mechanism from view and rich walnut trim through out the interior, further separating it from the standard roadster. The Tickfords were three-position drophead coupes with top that could be folded halfway back or all the way down. A rare car when new, it is believed that only 30 examples of this remarkable MG survive today. Presented is a charming Tickford that was discovered in the hands of an MG collector who had disassembled the car for restoration just before he passed away in 1982. After more than a decade spent gathering information on TBs and Tickfords, the subsequent owner and Pebble Beach entrant and judge began to rebuild the car in his garage, aiming to achieve the most authentic restoration possible. Meticulously restored in a color scheme that was available from new; green with green top and tan interior. This car also features several items from the MG-Approved Extra Equipment list such as spare bulb carrier, dipping headlights, inspection lamp, fire extinguisher, master batter switch and turn signals. Other period correct accessories include polished aluminum valve cover and block side cover, supercharger boost gauge and BluemelsBrooklands racing steering wheel. A past Pebble Beach award winner, the TB Tickford offers a unique opportunity to own a very limited production British sports car.

0Y4026 MG “C” Type Montlhery Midget Recreation

The MG “C” type Midget was a dominate European racing success in the early 1930’s, following on the heals of the Factory’s prior competition model “M.” Offered is an exact recreation of the rare and priceless original built by David Cooksey, who possesses decades of experience in maintaining, restoring and building pre war MGs, especially C types. He is one of the most well known and respected names in the field and his knowledge is second to none. He has owned and raced a genuine C type since the 1970’s. The car was built on a J type chassis (J0316) , which was shortened and totally rebuilt with bolted construction, as opposed to the riveted construction of a J type, to the EXACT C TYPE SPEC. It was for all intense and purposes, a new C type chassis. The engine is built to 1931/32 C type supercharged specification. The block is new and is the correct 750cc. The crankcase, front gear case and many other parts are new. It was built for racing applications. The engine has an AA type head per the early C types. The supercharger, built by David Cooksey, is a front mounted (as original), vane type with separate oil tank. It is extremely robust and reliable and has

given no problems to date. The gearbox is the correct ENV cross tube, 4 speed, straight cut box found on the original cars. These gearboxes are very rare and very expensive. The cross tube enables the unit to be bolted to the chassis side rails thus enabling the rear engine mounting to be dispensed with. The engine and gearbox are supported at 3 points on the chassis thereby removing the stresses inherent in the earlier design. Most C type replicas, even if they deploy an ENV box rarely use the correct cross tube version. A complete new frame was built for the car. This was clad in a new aluminum body fabricated by Mr. Cooksey. The paintwork is superb and color scheme of black and green true to the original. The dashboard houses an absolutely correct array of gauges and switches including the Hobson gauges for fuel and oil levels. The clock keeps perfect time as it has been converted to battery operation. Other instruments include ammeter, oil temp gauge, oil pressure gauge, supercharger pressure gauge, water temp gauge, and oil temp

gauge and very large rev counter. Twin fuel pumps are fitted, with one acting as a reserve. Car includes correct full tonneau cover and the exhaust is to Brooklands pattern and original Brooklands screens are also fitted. Simply put, this is as close to owning an original C type Midget as can be possibly found. It is correct in every way and can be used as a truly exhilarating road car or equally suitable for vintage racing events. All build information and specifications are present with car. There is no way you could replicate this car’s authenticity for the reserve price of this historic British racing car.

1929 Duesenberg J Convertible Coupe, Rumbleseat Considered by many the finest automobile ever built, the metaphor “It’s a Duesie!” remains common in American lexicon to this day. Auggie and Fred Duesenberg were bicycle manufacturers from Iowa who developed a reputation of building some of the finest race cars in the 1920’s. Enter the dynamic E. L. Cord who purchased the company in 1926 and instructed the brothers to build the world’s most magnificent automobile, cost be damned. And that, they did . . . in splendid fashion! Approximately 481 chassis were produced, all with custom coachwork. At the heart of every Duesenberg was itself a masterpiece; a Lycoming-built 420cid straight-eight producing 265hp at 4,200rpm; a number unmatched by any other manufacturer at the time. Aluminum alloy was used for light weight, four valves per cylinder for high efficiency, and dual overhead cams for enhanced performance. The chassis was a sturdy ladder frame made from alloy steel. The entire driveline and suspension were engineered like a race car with handling and performance the number one priority. The stunning coachwork was sculpted by the Walter M. Murphy Company of Pasadena, California. No coachbuilder bodied more chassis for Duesenberg than Murphy; a total of 144 cars including 60 convertible coupes between December 1928 and the spring of 1932 making it the most popular Duesenberg model built. While it was a cataloged production style, each car was essentially handcrafted and no two were exactly alike. Murphy’s clientele read like a Hollywood “Who’s Who” list including Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, Tom Mix and Bronco Billy, Gary Cooper, Clara Bow, Gloria Swanson, novelist Zane Gray, publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst, and film studio owners Hal Roach and Howard Hughes. Like so many others, Murphy found itself a victim of the Depression and the decline in demand for custom coachbuilt bodies for the world’s financial elite. It ceased bodying custom-built cars in April of 1932.

Carolyn May Hoopes (the family business was Union Drawn Steel) visited the Auburn dealer in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania inquiring about the new Model J Duesenberg. The dealer called Indianapolis and Duesenberg sent out their master salesman, Hubert Egender to visit her. He sold Hoopes a black Murphy convertible roadster from photographs and catalog pictures while taking in on-trade an earlier Twenties Lincoln. Carl Killorin, a young man in his twenties, worked at the Duesenberg factory in Indianapolis. On Friday afternoon he received a call and was instructed to take the night train to Chicago and pick up a new Murphy convertible roadster and in turn, deliver it to Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. He picked up the car at the Duesenberg showroom at 333North Michigan Avenue in Chicago and drove the car beginning Sunday on the 450-mile trip to the Auburn dealer in Beaver Falls. Arriving early Monday he met Hubert Egender prior to delivering the car. The car was cleaned and driven to

37 www.MorphyAuctions.com • 877-968-8880

the 17-acre estate of Ms. Hoopes which overlooked the confluence of the Ohio and Monongahela Rivers. Upon seeing the car, Hoopes remarked that she did not like the light canvas top and additionally, she desired a trunk fitted with traveling cases. Killorin drove the car back to Indianapolis where the factory put on a black leather top, a Packard trunk rack framed with chrome, and a Packard trunk fitted with four cases – a dress case, two overnight cases and a hat box. Two weeks later Killorin drove the car back to Beaver Falls and left the Duesenberg in the hands of a satisfied Carolyn May Hoopes. Hoopes used the car sparingly over the years. One of her longest trips, however, was from Beaver Falls to Battle Creek, Michigan when she checked into a tuberculosis sanitarium in the early 1940’s. While in Battle Creek during January 1950, Hoopes gave the Duesenberg to her doctor’s wife, a Mrs. Wilson, who drove the Duesenberg for a short time before it was sold to Dema Dyer of Climax, Michigan in June 1952. The current owner, the fourth woman to be in possession of the car, purchased the car in April 1961 from Dyer at which time the odometer read just 27,010 miles. Since then, nearly 55 years have passed with the Duesenberg accumulating a bit more than 6,000 miles! This numbers-matching example with complete known ownership history from new retains the coachwork with which it was born. Furthermore, it is believed that the body has never been removed from the chassis and much of the car remains as it was delivered from new, including paint. Nor has the engine been removed from the chassis as per the A-C-D certification, a copy of which included and available for inspection. The A-C-D certification makes numerous references to

the originality of the car noting that it is the 87th “J” produced by the firm with all components as delivered in 1929. Ownership records and numerous receipts are included along with the original Duesenberg owner’s manual. In September 2005, the gas tank was removed and cleaned and the interior treated. At the same time, the head was removed (without removing the fenders), the valves lapped, and the valve stem tolerances set. The pan was dropped and new rings installed. Brian Joseph of Classic & Exotic Service, Inc. supplied precision bronze castings to rebuild the fuel pump along with new machined aluminum water jacket plates to replace those that had deteriorated. The wheels were also refinished in the original ivory at this time and new tires installed. The car was fitted with a radio some time in its early history. In 2006 the Duesenberg was entered into the Meadow Brook Concours were it received the Best Original Car Award, an honor it also received at that year’s Milwaukee Masterpiece. It was last shown during the 2007 season at the CCCA Meet at the Gilmore Museum and the Geneva Concours were it received the People’s Choice Award. Arguably, this is one of the most important Duesenbergs to come to market in recent memory. It is a rare opportunity to purchase a matching numbers, unmolested original Duesenberg as it was delivered new from the Indianapolis manufacturer. Offered at no reserve.

1946 Lincoln Continental Convertible The prototype, of the Lincoln Cabriolet convertible, was designed for Edsel Ford in 1938 by E.T. Gregorie. The 130 Horsepower V-12 engine was offered through 1948 in both the Cabriolet and 4 passenger coupe. In the immediate post World War II era, racing again began to exploit automobile technology. The 1946 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet was chosen to pace the 46 Indy 500. Only one Continental lapped the 2.5 oval, unlike today where as many as 100 pace cars are built for the Memorial Day race. Driven by Henry Ford II during the event, the Continental was supposed to have been given to race winner George Polson, which is the tradition of winning the 500. Unfortunately, Polson was killed in a plane crash later that year. Only 201 Cabriolets were built in 1946 and at a base price of $4,400.00, was one of the most expensive domestic cars available to the buying public. The Lincoln Continental is considered a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America. Offered is a 1946 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet Convertible in breathtaking Royal Coach Maroon with tan leather interior and tan Haartz cloth top. Completely restored in the early 1980’s over a ten year period, the Lincoln has remained in the same ownership for over 40 years. The engine has been rebuilt by Turley Racing of Los Angeles, CA, paint by Wagner Restoration in Ohio and all chrome by Custom Chrome of Elyeria, Ohio. Rarely is a car of this collector status available to market and even more so given the fact it has remained in the same ownership for over 40 years.

1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe The Plymouth Special Deluxe is a full-sized automobile produce by Plymouth from 1946-1950. As the war in Europe wound down, the US Government slowly began allowing the automobile industry to return to car making. New models offered in 1946 were the P15S Deluxe and the P15C Special Deluxe. Special Deluxes were available in four door sedan, club coupe, convertible coupe, and woody station wagon. The Special Deluxe model was powered by a 3.6 lite, 97 hp engine and a manual three-speed transmission. Offered from the Richard Reinhold estate is an original 1949 Plymouth Special Deluxe owned by famed classic car restorer Richard Reinhold. The Special Deluxe was originally delivered through the Hettinger Brothers Chrysler Plymouth dealership in Reading, PA to Howard Wolford of Fleetwood, PA. Mr. Wolford chose to have Hettinger Brothers repaint the car from its original Brown exterior color prior to delivery. This was a common practice as following the war there were waiting lines for new cars and choices of options were limited at best. With just over 45,000 original miles, the original interior looks as nice today as it did in 1949. Special notice to the wood veneers on the dash and their perfect patina. With recent valve and brake work, the Plymouth is ready to drive and enjoy for years to come. Always maintained to the highest standard and stored in climate controlled environment, this time capsule Lancaster/Berks County classic is offered for the first time in 50 years. As presented, the Special Deluxe Plymouth offers a rare opportunity to own and enjoy a pristine original classic car for very fair price.

2001 Chrysler Prowler

Built from 1997-2002, the Prowler was given free rein by Chrysler engineers to create whatever they wanted in a “hot rod” type vehicle. Powered by a 253 hp aluminum V6 and Autostick automatic transmission, the 2001 Prowler had a top speed of 126 mph and 0-62 time of 5.9 seconds. The Prowler’s 50/50 weight distribution is attributed to the transmission being located at the rear of the car, much like the C5 Corvette, Porsche 944 and Alfa Romeo. It was also the first rear wheel drive Chrysler since 1989.

HIGHLIGHTS • 4,800 miles • All power equipment • All books and records

BIDDING RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES If a lot does not receive a bid of 50% of the low estimate, the lot will be passed by the auctioneer. The auctioneer will determine the highest bidder. The auctioneer alone has the right to reopen the bidding of an item if deemed necessary due to a dispute. If there is a tie bid between the floor and Internet or absentee bid, the floor bid takes precedence. DMA and its representatives reserve the right to remove those attendees who impede preview and/or the auction. The fall of the Auctioneer’s hammer marks the acceptance of the Buyer’s bid and a contract of purchase and sale is made between the Buyer and seller. DMA is not a party to the contract of purchase and sale and DMA shall not be liable or responsible for any breach or default of such contract by either Buyer or seller. Subject to the General Conditions, including, without limitation, the Buyer’s fulfillment of Buyer’s obligations and covenants under these Conditions of Sale, title to the specified Vehicle shall pass to the Buyer when the full Purchase Price (as defined below) is paid in accordance with these Conditions of Sale. Upon the fall of the hammer, the Buyer is thereupon responsible for and assumes all risk of loss or damage to such Vehicle. DMA, its employees, officers, directors, agents and representatives shall not be liable for any loss or damage to or any loss or damage caused by any Vehicle at any time. Immediately following the fall of the hammer, the Buyer shall be required to execute a Confirmation of Purchase, which confirms Buyer’s purchase of the Vehicle as announced by the Auctioneer. Whether or not the bidder is acting as an agent, unless DMA is notified in writing by the principal in advance of the Auction that the bidder is acting as an agent for the principal and DMA accepts in writing in its discretion such notice, the bidder shall be deemed to be bidding as a principal for its own account and shall be personally responsible for payment in full of the Purchase Price as Buyer and for fulfillment of Buyer’s obligations and covenants under the General Conditions. All sales are final. No person shall be entitled to bid or shall bid at the Auction unless they have complied with the requirements of the General Conditions, including, without limitation, registering in advance with DMA by completing all such registration and other forms and providing financial and other information as DMA in its discretion may request or require.

ABSENTEE BIDDING - DMA will accept absentee bids if pre-authorized by mail, fax or through www. morphyauctions.com online. Absentee bidders must use the absentee bid form and clearly mark the lot number, title and maximum bid amount. Absentee bidding forms may be accessed online at www.morphyauctions.com. If there are two (2) identical bids placed on the same item, priority will be given to the first bid received. All bids must be left in increments as explained on our bid form. If a bid is “out of increment,” the auctioneer has the right to round the bid up to the next correct increment. Bidders may preview, register and place bids online through our website, www.morphyauctions.com. Seller(s) agree to allow the Auctioneer to accept and execute absentee bids in a competitive manner for potential buyers and under the Morphy Auctions absentee bidding terms and conditions. During the live sale, the auctioneer will execute your absentee bid competitively up to the maximum amount you have indicated.

ONLINE BIDDING - Online bidding through www. morphyauctions.com, Live Auctioneers, and Proxibid is also available; all Terms and Conditions still apply. If there is a tie bid between the internet bidding venues and the floor, the floor bid takes precedence.

ESTIMATES Estimates (which do not include the Buyer’s premium or any taxes) for the Vehicles printed in this catalogue are only opinions, are prepared well in advance of the Auction, are subject to change and may be amended either orally or in writing prior to or at the Auction. Estimates

should not be relied upon, and each bidder and Buyer hereby agrees not to rely upon any estimate, as fact or a guarantee or prediction of the actual selling price or value of a Vehicle, and DMA shall not have any liability with regard to any estimates under any circumstances. RESERVES The majority of our items are unreserved, but occasionally items may carry a moderate reserve. Please note that when a lot carries a reserve, the reserve will not be greater than the low estimate. In the case of a reserved item, the seller has authorized the auctioneer to bid on their behalf until the reserve price is reached. BUYER’S PREMIUM A 10% buyer’s premium will be added to all successful bids and is payable by the purchaser as part of the total purchase cost. SALES TAX Lots delivered to you, or your representative are subject to all applicable state and local taxes, unless appropriate permits are on file with DMA. Bidder agrees to pay DMA the actual amount of tax due in the event that sales tax is not properly collected due to: 1) an expired, inaccurate, or inappropriate tax certificate or declaration, 2) an incorrect interpretation of the applicable statute, 3) or any other reason. The appropriate form or certificate must be on file at and verified by DMA five days prior to Auction, or tax must be paid; only if such form or certificate is received by DMA within 4 days after the Auction can a refund of tax paid be made. Lots from different auctions may not be aggregated for sales tax purposes. PAYMENT All merchandise must be paid in full within three (3) days of the date of the sale. We accept certified checks, wire transfers, money orders, and cash. If you wish to pay by personal or company check you must have submitted a bank letter of credit that is verified by DMA five days prior to the Auction. Unless otherwise agreed to by DMA in writing, DMA will not accept payment of any portion of the Purchase Price from any party other than the Buyer. Title to a Vehicle does not pass to the Buyer, and the Vehicle will not be released to a Buyer, until good and cleared funds in the amount of

the full Purchase Price are received by DMA in accordance with the General Conditions. In the few situations where a successful bidder does not remit payment when due, DMA will proceed with the legal steps necessary to protect its interests and will block the bidder from future auction participation. COLLECTION, REMOVAL AND STORAGE Buyer must comply with all of the General Conditions, including, but not limited to, DMA shall have received payment in full, in good cleared funds, of the Purchase Price, and all Vehicles must be removed from the Auction site at Buyer’s risk and expense, by 5:00 pm local time of the Auction location on the Wednesday following the completion of the Auction. If not removed timely by Buyer, in addition to any and all other remedies and rights DMA may have, DMA shall have the right (but not the obligation) to remove any Vehicle at Buyer’s sole risk and expense and store it, at Buyer’s account, including, without limitation, removal, storage, transportation and handling expenses and costs and applicable taxes, at a third-party warehouse, and Buyer hereby grants DMA an irrevocable power of attorney to remove and store such vehicles at Buyer’s expense. Except in DMA’s sole discretion, no Vehicle shall be released to Buyer until DMA has received payment in full, in good cleared funds, of the Purchase Price for the Vehicle, and Buyer has fully complied with the General Conditions. ROADWORTHINESS/COMPLIANCE Notwithstanding any verbal or written statement or description of any kind regarding any Vehicle, whether by or on behalf of DMA or seller, including, without limitation, in the catalogue for the Auction, all Vehicles are sold “as is” and only as collector’s items and Vehicles may not be suitable for use on the road. The Buyer of any Vehicle who intends to use the Vehicle on the road is responsible for determining roadworthiness and for complying with all applicable regulations regarding title, registration, insurance, emission control, safety equipment and the Buyer assumes all risk of whether any such Vehicle will or does comply, and neither DMA nor seller shall have any liability or responsibility of any kind for failure to comply or lack of roadworthiness by any Vehicle.
