Had a heck of a good time today at the Barrett-Jackson "NORTHEAST" vehicle auction, which is being presented for the first time at the beautiful Mohican Sun Hotel-Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut!:!:

Glad I wore a comfortable pair of sneakers, as we walked for what seemed like miles!

There were many flawless, high end cars for sale there, as well as several average (but real nice) driver quality cars.

Saw three Studebaker-related cars, (a '47, a '50, and an '89 Avanti) and one Packard Convertible at the auction...Weather was perfect!...Pics to follow after I get some sleep!! :)

Living just a few miles south of Mohegan Sun the impact of the B-J auction on the area is quite noticeable. I anticipate it being larger every year. I was told that over 11,000 people were registered as bidders. Maybe some SDC members are visiting there before heading for Warwick.

I have watched most of the TV coverage for the first two days. I saw a stock appearing 1936 Studebaker four door sedan and a nice restomod 1950 Champion convertible sold. I believe that the 1950 sold for $27K. I had figured it at $35K (partly figuring that a simiar Chevrolet would be $70K.

A friend of mine ordered up two 3 day passes a few months ago. (I saw Christy Lee!:)) The vehicles were on display on one floor of the parking garage, and two very large tents outside...access to the cars was excellent!

There was a very nicely restored '47 Champion Starlight Coupe for sale, as well as a NICE '89 Champagne Gold Avanti....The Avanti brought twelve-five...a real good deal IMHO (I saw Christy Lee!:))

A '47 Champion 2dr with the four piece 'wraparound' rear window wasn't commonly known as a 'Starlight Coupe' in '47 Gary? :confused:

Here's a really nicely restored '47 Champ Starlight Coupe at Barrett-Jackson Northeast...Buy it, drive it to the Stude International right down the road..and bring home a trophy!! :woot:

(Sold for $21.5K)

This '89 Avanti coupe HAD to be worth the $12,500 the owner got for it (no reserve)...This Avanti has a beautiful beige leather interior. :!:

This '50 Champ street rod was a real looker....dig where the exhaust exits in front of the rear tire! :ohmy:

It is certainly a nice collection of pictures from the auction. What was the engine in the 50 'vert, I missed that on the broadcast? Nice pix,thx. Bob

I'm glad to see it here. As I don't go to the Stove Hugger forum, I like the fact that someone had the foresight to post it here. Thanks SN-60. I appreciate it. Besides does it really matter how often an item gets posted?

Thank you!...I carried this over from the 'Stove Huggers' section cause I don't see a way to post pictures in that section of the Stude Forum.

Is there a way?....Thanks again! :)

PS....I have lots more photos...some great engine shots...but they are not Studebaker....Shall I post them?

For the sake of the people who weren't at this auction, I'll keep posting the photos I took while there.

Here's a really nicely done '50 Chevy pickup which was auctioned as a 'package' along with a custom made matching trailer, and a beautiful matching 1953 Harley Davidson Panhead motorcycle...The Harley has 10 thousand miles on it since its restoration....This 'package' sold for (I think) around 72K!!

I often read about forum members who clamor for pictures. I too like more pictures. Then, when someone goes out of their way to give us some, I read of a disgruntled member who's main complaint is that the pictures appear in another heading on this forum. Really?

I've merged this thread with the Stove Huggers thread and have removed all references to the other thread, complaints about the two threads, etc.. As far as I'm concerned, there is plenty of Stude content in this thread. There's nothing wrong with having some non-studes in the photos. It is, after all, a car auction/car show.

OP and fans and critics of the OP, do not respond to this post or thank me or chastise me for merging the thread here. If you want to do that, you can PM me or send me an email but enough space has been wasted on carping about or cheering on this thread and the previous Stove Huggers thread already.

Here's one for our friend Brian Greenall and our other Studebaker friends in OZ!.......This 1958 Corvette is UNBELIEVABLE....has less than 20,000 original miles on it...you're looking at the original factory interior and, did I mention it's equipped with the rare Rochester Fuel Injection option???

No Ed, it wasn't, but it is now.

Explanation: Although the exact same body style existed (C5) in '47 and '48, the marketing department did not come up with the name "Starlight" until the '49 model year. So Gary is correct (of course), but common usage and for simplicity's sake, most people call them all "Starlight." Make sense?

Its a bit strange to be sure, but it does increase power. Its the cross ram manifolds. If you'll notice, all the new cars have some sort of long intake runners to increase the ram effect. Those engineers were, in fact, ahead of their time.

hausdok
06-27-2016, 02:41 AM
Actually I think they were done that way so that each intake will be the same length. When they are the same length an engine runs smoother and supposedly has more consistent torque.

Is this auction once a year or do they have more events?
That low mileage fuelie vette is a big ticket car, was it for sale or display?

I love the Daytona coupe, but if I had one it would have to be painted American racing blue with big white stripes like it had when beating the Ferraris in their own backyard.;)

It seems to have worked. They took one to Bonneville and ran very fast....was it 190?

A modified 300D went 156+ at Bonneville. Impressive, but Avanti was faster by quite a bit.

Mohegan Sun and Barrett-Jackson have an agreement to do the auction for five years. Today's newspaper says there were 1,700 registered bidders.

Here is a link to today's newspaper which should get you a photo perspective...You must be a subscriber to get the entire article. http://www.theday.com/business/20160626/barrett-jackson-car-auction-sales-at-mohegan-sun-top-26-million

That is correct! The five passenger coupe was called a Starlight starting with the 1949 model. The name was then retroactively applied in general usage to the 1947 and 1948 five passenger coupes.

Besides you calling it a Starlight Coupe, B-J was doubly wrong in calling it a Starlite Coupe.

EDIT: I now see that this has already been replied to. I replied before reading all of the later posts. I am at the SDC Convention, where we all should be, and this is the first chance that I had to go on the Forum since I left home.

That Corvette was included in the auction Brian...but I don't know the selling price....B-J Northeast auction results should be on the internet somewhere.

There were MANY other very nice early Corvette's there! :)

I visited the Ford rotunda when the sports roadster tonneau covers were displayed for the new cars. There was a beautiful red one with the back seat cover and real wire wheels. I was on one of those paper route trips they used to give us for new subscriptions to the Indianapolis star or news. 12 new subscriptions got us an overnight tour to DEtriot, Chicago, St Louis and Fort Knox. I did all of them and some twice. Great fun for a jr high paperboy!

"This black '56 ('57?) Chevy Corvette"

A '57 would have 2 little "eyebrow" bumps on top of the cowl near the corners of the windshield.
Neighbor of mine is the original owner of his '57, bronzy gold with white coves, 2x4bbls, and a 3 speed.
Bought it new in 1958, and just finished his own frame off a couple of years ago.
I've been wondering if he's Corvette's longest standing original owner?

Oops, just spotted the eyebrows, '57 it is!

Largest crowd ever to attend B-J auction, not enough independent cars but that's ok. '56 Corvette very similar to mine went for 91K, all original. Mine isn't. They apparently have a five year contract with Mohegan to hold auctions.

I believe it brought over $40K
