Monday, June 26th at 8:00 A.M. CST – Selling approximately 250± of the premier “Gabeline” collector cars.  These cars will be the rarest and most highly sought after units!

CST all three days – There will be multiple auction rings operating simultaneously.  A more detailed listing of the items to be sold each day will be added as we start setting up for the auction; although, it is our plan to start with the car parts, signs, gas pumps and pedal cars (as always, Sullivan Auctioneers typically start with the best items!).


AUCTIONEERS’ NOTE:  Wow…this will be one of the largest and most interesting auctions ever held in the Midwest! The auction brochures will hopefully be printed in April and will be mailed to everyone that has either called in or email requesting a booklet.  If you have not requested a booklet, please do so by emailing your mailing address to [email protected].  As stated earlier, we cannot emphasize enough that you need make your lodging accommodations now.  Stay tuned for updated information and we hope to see you at this once-in-a-lifetime event!
