Rogers’ Classic Car Museum Auction – Las Vegas Feb 27 -28, 2015

News Release:  Mecum Car Auctions 2015 – Las Vegas – Rogers’ Classic Car Museum

ROGERS’ CLASSIC CAR MUSEUM // 230 VEHICLES 
1480 Gragson Ave
Las Vegas, NV 89102
February 27-28, 2015

 

Featured Classic Cars

1953 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible

 

 

Media mogul, former chancellor and lover of all things automotive, Jim Rogers was one of this era’s most passionate activists and most generous philanthropists – and in addition, he was a prolific collector of classic automobiles. His $130-million gift to his alma mater, the University of Arizona College of Law, stands as the largest single donation ever made to an American law school, and he was named by Time Magazine as one of the top 12 philanthropists in the nation after his donations to institutions of higher education reached $275 million.

Rogers passed away in June at age 75, but his passions did not die with him, and he left behind a legacy larger than life, as well as his 230-plus-car collection. Rogers committed himself fully to everything he did and believed in, and his collection of classic cars grew just as quickly as his generous contributions to education and the arts.

Rogers truly represented the quintessential classic car enthusiast. He was more than just a collector; he had extensive knowledge about the cars and the details of their existence. “He didn’t just buy the cars – he knew every little detail about their production,” says his widow Beverly. “He knew how many Oldsmobiles, Buicks, and Cadillacs that had been made from the end of World War II through the ’70s, and he could rattle off the particulars of each model.”

After Rogers’ passing last year, it was decided that the collection should be used to pay it forward, the way Rogers had always lived his own life. That is why it was decided to offer the entire collection at auction with all proceeds to benefit The Rogers Foundation – dedicated to transforming the lives of K-12 students and artists in Southern Nevada through arts and education grants and scholarships. The auction will be held right from the collection’s museum display space in Las Vegas this February 27-28.

“When you buy a car from Jim Rogers’ collection, you’re not just buying a well-made or refurbished automobile,” Beverly says, “you’re buying a piece of American history. Take it to heart – enjoy it – and my heartfelt request is that someday you pass it on, and let the next generation understand and appreciate the place of the automobile in American history. That, my friends, will do Jim proud.”

RM Auctions Shines in Paris with an outstanding 19M Euro Sale

News Release:  RM Auctions

PARIS (5 February, 2015) – RM Auctions returned to Paris last night to stage its second sale in the French capital, selling €19.353.750 worth of automobiles to a packed room of eager enthusiasts. With bids also coming in strongly via the phone desk and on the Internet from 34 countries, 82 percent of all lots were sold on the night with no less than five achieving sums in excess of €1.0 million.

The gorgeous 1963 Ferrari 250 GT/L Lusso Berlinetta, chassis no. 5085 GT, was the night’s top seller, garnering a very strong €1.624.000. The 250 GT/L ‘Lusso’ is considered by many to be the most stylish of all front-engined V12 Ferraris, a view that was supported by the vigorous bidding witnessed in the auction room.
Max Girardo, Managing Director of RM Europe, said: “It’s fantastic to return to Paris and post an even better result than we did in 2014. We are delighted that the sale is now well-established on the European calendar. The auction room was absolutely packed and the atmosphere was terrific, so it’s no surprise that we are able to achieve such a strong result. It is always our objective to concentrate on quality rather than quantity and the average lot price of €333.000 is testament to that.”

The second biggest seller of the night was the simply lovely 1964 Porsche 904 Carrera GTS, chassis no. 904-026, freshly restored and with documented ownership and extensive successful competition history. This delightful sports racing Porsche is eligible for many of the world’s great events, and the €1.428.000 that car achieved was a reflection of the market’s strong appreciation. Rounding out the top three sales was the much in demand 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster. One of the most iconic of all post-war sports cars, 300 SLs are coveted by collectors all around the world, and the ultra-desirable alloy-block model offered fully deserved its €1.232.000 selling price.

Proving that it isn’t just the Ferraris of the 1960s that are in high demand, the low-mileage 1990 Ferrari F40 presented in Paris attracted enormous interest. Regarded as one the greatest supercars of the modern era, the beautiful example on offer achieved an exceptional €1.176.000. The list of million-euro-plus sales also included the visually imposing, bright green 1965 Iso Grifo A3/C Stradale. Appropriately dubbed the ‘Green Apple’, the car is a desirable early rivet-body example and was offered in perfect, fully restored condition, bringing a strong €1.036.000.

Texas-Sized Sam Pack Five Star collection achieves impressive 11.5 million at auction

News Release:
November 17, 2013
Source: http://www.auctionsamerica.com/media/release.cfm?ID=1115.  Reproduced with permission.

DALLAS, Texas (November 16, 2014) – RM Auctions together with Auctions America reaffirmed its position as the industry leader in private automotive collection sales on the weekend, generating an impressive $11,543,400 in sales with 100 percent of lots sold at its Sam Pack Five Star Collection sale in Dallas, Texas.

The result of more than a decade of dedicated acquisition by respected businessman, Sam Pack, the collection presented a broad range of ownership opportunities for enthusiasts. From a terrific series of fifties and sixties icons, through to a remarkable collection of Detroit muscle, and a superb series of concepts, customs and modern collectibles, the offering was marked by incredible diversity and quality. In total, Saturday’s sale lifted the gavel on 131 vehicles before a packed house. The offering represented just a portion of Mr. Pack’s immense collection, offered in an effort to downsize the group to a more manageable level and allowing him to remain active in the hobby. Impressively, bidders represented eight countries from around the world and 36 states across the U.S.

“We were incredibly honored to have been entrusted by Mr. Pack to handle this sale, and thrilled to continue our strong track record in Texas” said Ian Kelleher, Managing Director of RM Auctions’ and Auctions America’s West Coast Division. “The results reflect not only a great group of motor cars, but an appreciation for the passion of a true gentleman and collector. Mr. Pack’s unwavering commitment to quality was industry known and wonderfully represented by the offering this weekend. As an owner, he instilled confidence in many of the first time bidders and veteran collectors in attendance, who were more than happy to take home a car of excellent presentation and condition. All in all, it was a fantastic sale with plenty of spirited bidding and numerous lots exceeding expectations.”

Headlining Saturday’s sale and the subject of one of many lively bidding contests, was an iconic 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra. A part of the collection since 2008, the iconic American sports car achieved seven figures, selling for a strong $1,292,500. Another hotly contested lot was the “as-new” 2006 Ford GT, one of 60 Fords that crossed the podium. Featuring delivery mileage only with less than 13 miles on its clock, the GT garnered a fantastic $418,000 – a strong result that reflects the continued popularity and rising values of these late-model collectibles. Additional Fords exceeding pre-sale estimates included a supercharged 1957 Ford Thunderbird “F-Code”, which passed onto its fourth owner for $247,500, and a one-off 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca Parnelli Jones Edition, showing just 38.5 miles, which commanded $88,000.

Illustrating the collection’s incredible diversity, a superb series of customs also drew big bids. Tremendous pre-sale interest in the 1939 Lincoln-Zephyr Coupe Custom, a stunning creation with 600bhp, translated into an outstanding $253,000 (above estimate), while a 1937 Ford Roadster Oze Custom, described as a street rod for the 21st century, achieved $99,000 against a pre-sale estimate of $60,000 – $80,000.

Other notable sales included:

• a 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS NASCAR, campaigned by Jeff Gordon in the 2006 and 2007 seasons, fuelled one of the most intense battles of the day. Roaring onto the auction stage to applause from the audience, it shattered its pre-sale estimate at a healthy $165,000.

• Highlighting the collection’s unique group of concepts was a 2005 Ford Sport Trac Adrenalin Concept, unveiled at the 2005 New York Auto Show, which tripled its pre-sale estimate at $173,250. A bold, one-of-a-kind 2004 Lincoln Mark X Concept, shown at the 2004 North American International Auto Show, also surpassed pre-sale expectations at $129,500.

Full proceeds from the sale of the collection’s 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 ($126,500), along with part proceeds from event admission, will be donated to Holy Angels, a residential and training campus for individuals with intellectual and development disabilities, in Shreveport, Louisiana.

“When I made the decision to pare down my collection, a lot of people asked me who I was going to use. Without hesitation, I said RM Auctions / Auctions America. In my opinion, they are the best in the business,” said Sam Pack. “I chose them based on years of respect and trust, and a relationship built on interacting with them as both a buyer and a seller. From their organization and process to their follow through and execution, the level of service they provide is unmatched. They are incredibly client-focused, and the fact that this weekend’s sale represented their 30th private collection in 35 years of business, speaks volumes.”

Sam Pack Collection Top 10 sales:

Lot 188 – 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra $1,292,500

Lot 158 – 1963 Shelby 289 Cobra $880,000
