Sales Strong in 2017
Collector car sales at public auctions in North America remained strong in 2017, with total sales of $1.28 billion and a sale price of $4.5 million needed to crack the top 20 highest priced cars. “Although gross numbers fell by 2 percent to $1.28 billion, fewer cars were offered and the average sale price was up by 2 percent,” said Brian Rabold, vice president of valuation at Hagerty, publisher of the Hagerty Price Guide and the world’s largest insurer of collector vehicles. Auction sales hit a record high of $1.45 billion in 2015 before dropping off in 2016, although average sale prices have continued to increase.
