Since its return to the booming auction world in the fall of 2013, Carlisle Auctions has seen unprecedented success. Their 2014 Spring Carlisle auction had total sales of $3.2 million bolstered by having over 300 cars crossing the block. The 2-day event’s top selling car was a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Resto Mod, moving for $77,000. In total, the top 5 alone brought in $337,250.
Prior to 2013, Auctions America operated the Carlisle Events’ auctions. Carlisle Auctions is family owned and features a “FREE UNLESS SOLD” policy, which they have found to be popular with sellers. The parent company, Carlisle Events, is one of the world’s largest presenters of collector car and truck events, and is a preferred automotive destination for enthusiasts and collector car hobbyists worldwide. For over four decades, Carlisle Events has been a staple in the automotive community offering events for enthusiasts looking to find automotive parts, memorabilia and collector vehicles to fuel their passion. They currently host 14 events annually, with 10 taking place at the Carlisle, PA Fairgrounds. Two events are held at Festival Park in Zephyrhills, FL, one at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds in Bloomsburg, PA and another at the Allentown Fairgrounds in Allentown, PA.
Their specialty shows include Carlisle Performance & Style, Carlisle Import & Kit Nationals, Carlisle Ford Nationals, Carlisle GM Nationals, Carlisle Chrysler Nationals, Carlisle Truck Nationals, Bloomsburg Nationals, Carlisle Sports & Outdoor Show and Corvettes at Carlisle.
