There is information I posted here. I talked to his daughter last evening and I believe an auction will be a next course of action if the estate sale does go that well.

With many of the cherries having been picked, they are reputed to have the collection whittled down to around 70 cars, & prices have been marked on each one.
Prices are on the high side but Brenda says they "are negotiable" so a decent deal may be had if other buyers do not
buy them up at the marked price. Weather is good this time of year, and I have heard of a good number of buyers coming from out of state in expectation of getting a rust free hardtop or conv at a reasonable price. I hope they are not disappointed, but few of these have been stored under cover and there will be far more buyers than buildable coupes & hardtops available. Be sure to drive in Fri night and be at the sale early. Chances are the better cond., more interesting cars will sell close to marked price & the rusty sedans will not sell for much if at all. There are a few Hawks, a 55 K, some trucks & a couple of rag tops still there.

I talked with Brenda today and she advises 40 to 50 vehicles were sold and very happy with the sale.

Any reports about who got what, sold, unsold or prices etc. or more, better "non-Pinterest" terrible Pics, from someone who was actually AT the Auction?
