      Crosleys at Auction
      Posted by: mark.beacom

      Here is the post
      Auction report I have
      prepared for last
      Saturday's Auction. If
      any of you would like
      to consign your
      Crosleys, please feel
      free to contact me.

      On 6-24-06 at 12:00
      noon at 4515 N 65th ave
      in Omaha, Auction
      Solutions LLC conducted
      the Lloyd Texley Estate
      Auction. Lloyd was an
      Omaha area OPS
      administrator and
      educator that passed
      away about 1 year ago.
      Lloyd's daughters hired
      Auction Solutions to
      liquidate the estate.
      All of his cars were
      low mileage and in
      excellent condition,
      including 5 Crosleys of
      various years.
      The vehicles came on
      the auction block at
      1:30PM.

      One of the Crosleys was
      painted in a red and
      white checkerboard
      pattern. It was a 1947
      sedan that had been in
      storage for a number of
      years.

      When the pictures of
      the car appeared on the
      internet it was spotted
      by the Son-in-law of
      its previous owner, who
      had used it for
      promotional purposes in
      their Carrol, IA Purina
      mill.

      The son-in-law
      purchased this vehicle
      back for sentimental
      reasons for $2530.00.

      The other Crosleys sold
      in a range between
      $1650.00-$3575.00.

      The weather started out
      a little bumpy Saturday
      morning with a steady
      rain. The setup crew
      covered the property
      with tents and then set
      the sale up in the
      rain, Once the sale
      began, the rain ended
      and the crowd poured
      in. 201 bidder numbers
      were assigned, but the
      crowd was estimated at
      500 onlookers and
      bidders.

      Onsite Bidders
      registered were from
      Australia to Arkansas,
      and internet bidders
      were registered from
      Canada, England and 13
      other states in the US.

      Thanks to everyone for
      their hard work and
      participation.

      I have posted some new
      information about the
      Crosleys history and
      some speculation about
      the car as well as a
      vintage picture of the
      dealership where the 51
      business coupe came
      from.
