Held at the Robson Estate in Gainesville, Georgia on November 13th, the RM Auctions’ The Milton Robson Collection presented 55 high-performance vehicles and a select range of memorabilia before a standing-room-only crowd, with bidders hailing from across the continent and as far away as England and Brazil. Bidders in the room were joined by those on the phone and via the Internet, sparking multiple instances of fierce and spirited bidding.
The top sale was a coveted 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air IV Convertible, one of only five built and the only Starlight Black example, which sparked a lively bidding war, achieving an impressive $682,000 to set a new auction record. Also garnering significant attention was a 1960 Chrysler 300F Four-Speed Convertible, the only factory four-speed, 400-hp convertible in existence, which realized a final sales price of $437,250 to also earn its place in the record books. Both sales generated enthusiastic applause from the crowd.
In addition to setting a string of new auction records, the renowned Milton Robson Collection posted over $9.2 million in sales.
