Sell Your Car At Lucky Auction’s Spring Sale!

Lucky Barn Finds

We have featured many of Lucky’s Auctions in the past. They have been huge supporters of Barn Finds, so we hope to return the favor by inviting all of you to checkout their upcoming Spring auction. It is going to happen May 30-31st at the LeMay Marymount Event Center in Tacoma, Washington. They still have some spots available if you are interested in selling your car. They charge a $200 fee to reserve a space and then a 10% premium if the car sells. Visit their site for more information. Looks like they have some cars from a big barn find? They have some interesting lots coming up for sale so keep reading for my favorites.

1949 Jaguar Mark V

There always something for everyone at these auctions and although this 1949 Jaguar Mark V probably won’t generate as much as interest as the E-Type on offer, I sort of prefer it. It’s a big beautiful pre-war cruiser with an original interior and exterior! The only problem is that it has never been titled in the States so you will have to wait for two years before you can take it out on the road. That’s a bummer, but it might spell bargain.

1964 Plymouth Valiant

Here’s one you can take out on cruise nights right away! It’s a V8-powered 1964 Plymouth Valiant Signet V200 and although it has a little rust in the quarters, it appears to be a clean driver-quality car. The push-button controls for the automatic transmission and unique looks add to the cool factor here. This one was donated to benefit the LeMay car museum.

1989 Lamborghini Countach

There’s nothing like a good old eighties supercar. The listing doesn’t have a description yet, but this 1989 Lamborghini Countach looks like the same car that was on the poster that graced every little boy’s room about two decades ago. For that reason alone, I’m sure it will go for good money. The fact that this one looks perfect in the photos will probably help matters too.

1970 Plymouth Superbird

Finally, we have a 1970 Plymouth Superbird. I suppose this could be considered the supercar of the seventies. With their big wing and streamlined fronts, they were too outrageous for consumers when  new, but now people love ’em. This one is claimed to have covered 89k miles which actually seems high for such a special model of car. Someone obviously loved it though. So, there’s my top picks. Now it’s your turn to look through the lot list and let us know which ones you like and why!

    Oh wait! How did I miss this one? I want the 1976 Cadillac Eldorado wagon project!

      Always loved those eldorado wagons.

    Why pay $200 plus 10% for limited exposure when you can list on eBay for much less and get worldwide exposure. Also, CL is free.

    I think the 10% fee is like a stick in the eye.

      There are good reasons to use an auction house. They are able to get cars in front of buyers that might not be on craigslist and eBay. Plus it can be a hassle going back and forth with interested parties who really don’t have the money available to make the purchase. With an auction house you avoid all that. Some people still see the value in that while others obviously do not.

    i like the 914-6, both beetles, GMC rv, mg1100, wooden boats, gmc/chevy and ford trucks and the corvette. something for everyone at this auction. any more details on why the bonded title/two year wait for the jag title? great that they are interested in the BF site. i hope they have a great sale.

  5. Woodie Man

    The ’61 converted fire engine /toy hauler is great. I wish Lucky had more and better pixctures of all of them. The Cadillac Meteor Ambulance and the 442 have my eye too . Maybe they’ll put up better pictures eventually..

  6. pontiactivist

    I really like the lemans and 442 convertibles but one sticks out to me. The 72 skylark not only looks to be a gs350 car but its also a sun coupe. 1 of 3943 sun coupes made. They had the funky folding vinyl sunroof. Kind of loke tge old vw beetles had. I had one of these years ago. One of the ones I really regret selling.
