Over 200 classic cars hidden for 61 years will now be out in the auction block next month in Oklahoma.
The auction will be on June 7, which will be held in the consolidated garage site and online.
The owner of the historic cars is Oliver Jordan. He used to run a salvage business in Enid city in Garfield County, Oklahoma back in 1945 to 1953. He locked all the cars up due to a zoning dispute that took years to settle. Jordan never gave in to the dispute. The cars were idle with most of them rotting outside the garage. Most of the cars date back to the 1930s to the 40s, but the oldest car in the collection is a very rare 1917 Maxwell.
Other significant cars that were found in the historic collection include Willoughby’s 1937 Lincoln limo that has an aluminium body and can hold up to seven passengers. That car is believed to one of the five of its kind left out of the 60 that were manufactured. Another is the 1937 Cord Model Beverly sedan that is 812 supercharged.
There were also two 1942 “blackout specials” that are build during the World War II. One was a Ford, while the other was a Chevy. Another car was Hudson’s short-lived brand, the 1937 TerraPlane Super Six.
Most of the cars do not have hoods and are already corroded. Despite this fact, VanDerBrink Auctions considers the auction as an event for the customizers, especially that most of the parts that used to be very common back in the days are now very rare.
Jordan was able to sell some of the cars himself. He died in 2003.
Now, auctioneer Yvett VanDerBrink said he will let you choose the car you would really love to buy and give an on the spot offer without haggling and gives you a take-it-or-leave-it choice.
