Just saw that this 62 Hawk will be sold at a small auction house in Charlottesville, VA tomorrow morning. Ad says 10 AM.

I grew up less than 3 miles from there and my mother now lives 8 miles down the road. If I was still in Richmond I would make the trip to check it out. I am not familiar with the car but see there is also a '48 Frazer Manhattan, '51 Kaiser, '46 Packard and '65 Riviera that will be sold as well. Perhaps Frank Drumheller is familiar with them.

which car will draw more attention and the higher bid ... the Hawk or the Riviera ? Interesting to look back and see the competition in 1963.

just from the little info on their web listings, I'd say it would have been a good day to go to an auction. except I see in the fine print a 21% buyers premium.

Wow, the standard in the US is 10%. The highest I've seen is 17% for a high-end European auction. I'm not sure how a small firm (without the overhead of glossy catalogs and renting a fancy venue ...with free drinks..in Paris or London) needs to charge that.

Not a bad profit for selling stuff you don't own. :)

Maybe the standard on the west coast, but not around here. Most auctions here have been at 15% for years, with some at 18%. Then we have an 8.125% sales tax on the total amount.

EDIT: The 21% bp for this auction was for Internet bidders. In house (live) bp was at 18%
