Friday, March 13: The world’s biggest and busiest automotive auction companies have shown up at the Amelia Island Concours to do some business. It’s running through Sunday. This was Bonhams’inaugural auction here.
The highlighted 1912 Peerless Model 60 Runabout went for $440,000. It boasts the largest engine ever fitted to an American production car. Maybe not a boast it can still claim at 824ci.
Bonham can celebrate the $1,760,000 fetched for Murphy-bodied 1930 Cord Model L-29 Town Car. A 1908 American Underslung 50hp Roadster was given up for $1,738,000. Just over 1 million for a 1932 Stutz DV-32 Super Bearcat convertible. Marlene Dietrich owned a 1930 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Transformal Phaeton, which sold for $742,500.
