Located at the Owls Head Transportation Museum, NEAA is more than just an auction – it’s a destination that combines high-octane excitement and record-breaking action with an oceanside adventure in one of New England’s most popular locations, said OHTM, in a news release.
What started as a local gathering in 1978 has evolved into a sensation, known throughout the industry for the singular experience offered to bidders, consignors and spectators alike.
With an expanded 2-day vehicle auction and a growing automobilia sale, NEAA continues to connect collectors with the rare, sought-after and valuable automobiles they crave.
Year after year, the NEAA inventory showcases everything from rare and coveted vintage treasures to classic favorites and restoration masterpieces. Last year, a luxurious 1957 Dual-Ghia stole the show, while a powerhouse 1970 Plymouth Superbird brought crowds to their feet. NEAA has an average sell-through rate of 82% and sales reaching $4.5 million in 2018.
The dynamic online showroom offers a chance to check out some of the consignments offered that will cross the block this year, such as the 1966 Shelby GT350 from MS Classic Cars. There are ample descriptions, estimated price points, as well as quality evaluations of each vehicle.
From local phenomenon to industry sensation, this event connects buyers of all budgets with rare, sought-after, and quality automobiles. Also, check out the Automobilia Auction on Friday rare automotive ephemera, collectibles and memorabilia.
