Classic Vehicle Yard Auctioned Off
Hundreds of classic vehicles and parts have just been auctioned off in Enid, Oklahoma. On June 7, 2014, VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC auctioned off the remains of a classic salvage yard owned by Oliver Jordon. Jordon opened the salvage yard in 1945, but closed it to the public in 1953 because of a zoning dispute with the city. Jordon amassed vehicles throughout the years - never selling any of them, or their parts - until he died in 2004. His family recently decided to auction off his collection.
The collection included approximately 220 collector cars from the teens to the 1950s. The majority of the collection was from the 1930s - 1940s. Many of the vehicles sold for under $1,000. But, some of the rare vehicles sold for much more. A 1937 Cord Model 812 Supercharged Beverly four-door sedan sold for $42,000. A 1924 Rollin Touring Car sold for $14,750. A 1933 Ford Coupe sold for $15,000 under the description that it had a perfect rod body. Jordon’s favorite car, a 1937 rare all-aluminum Lincoln seven-passenger sedan with a Willoughby body sold for $9,200. Only 60 of these vehicles were made. The auction also included hundreds of collector parts from the 1930s - 1940s.
