SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA. November 1, 2016. Worldwide Auctioneers has confirmed plans to kick off the year with the first catalogue sale of Arizona Auction week. Their inaugural Scottsdale Auction is scheduled for the evening of Wednesday, January 18th in Old Town Scottsdale, presenting an exciting selection of 80 fine motorcars including some spectacular no-reserve collections. “My partner John Kruse and I have been attending the auctions out in Arizona for many years”, said Principal & Chief Auctioneer, Rod Egan. “Starting the year with an Arizona sale has long been part of our plans and the time is right to introduce a fresh and exciting sale to the mix. We have had huge encouragement from clients who simply wanted another quality option in that market and we can promise a great selection of consignments in Scottsdale on January 18th as we kick-off the catalogue auctions for the year and begin to set the market”. The Scottsdale Auction will complement Worldwide’s existing annual schedule, which includes The Texas Classic Auction in April and The Auburn Auction in September and various private collection auctions throughout the year.

The sale will include an outstanding selection of significant motorcars offered without reserve. Among the no-reserve consignments are three very special Porsches from the Darwin James Collection, comprising a freshly restored 1955 Porsche 356A/1600 Speedster with numbers matching powertrain and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and Kardex, a rare “Pre-A” example 1953 Porsche 356/1500 “Bent Window” Cabriolet with coachwork by Reutter and another recently restored numbers matching 1959 Porsche 356/1600 S Convertible D with coachwork by Karrozzeiewerke Drauz, again offered with Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
