Default Aust Auction of MVs

This may be of interest to our Australian MLU'ers, if they are unaware of it.

Default rare FWD HAR-1

That's the collection of the late Kevin Purcell - see http://www.mapleleafup.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=30824

We've seen his FWD HAR-1 on here before.

The WC-52 is in the background of the pics of the Command Car (Lot 1), but doesn't seem to be listed. And what has happened to LP Carrier 4963?

Default stuff

When I was there at Yaven Ck in 1976 Kevin had a very nice early script MB Jeep project and a US made Willys/Bantam Jeep trailer with the round guards that was in excellent condition. I asked Kevin if he would part with these but he wanted to keep them.

Does anyone know the status of Kevin Purcell's estate auction?

The above link leads to a blank page and I can see no related auctions under "upcoming acutions" on their website.

I managed to contact the auction company and hopefully I will have an answer Friday.

Three days ago the link worked fine, then yesterday I tried it again and nothing.
What we were looking at had lot1 then the rest were lot 999, so I am hoping it is down to de catalogued properly. There were mistakes in the entries also the 6x6s were listed as 6x4s.
I'll see what I can find out this end.

I drove past Kevinís place today and saw a Pickles Auction ute in the yard and a few people gathered around his storage shed.
One can make a relatively safe assumption that moves are afoot.

So, did we all know this?: https://www.pickles.com.au/info/bid-...ow-info#online

"It is possible to be the highest bidder on a Pickles Online item, but still not win the auction. This is because the vendor that owns the item may set a reserve price. If bidding reaches the vendorís reserve then the item will be sold. However if bidding does not reach the vendorís reserve then the item will not be sold."

Many of the vehicles in this Auction DO HAVE a reserve price, and will not be sold if that reserve is not met. No negotiating with the highest bidder, it's "reserve or nothing". They may consider the option of a Vendor's bid if the bids are in the vicinity, but not quite there yet. And they won't be revealing the reserve price.

The Diamond T ’project’ has now had the engine removed from its photos as it was being listed separately.

I read the terms and conditions, but didn't notice that this sale had reserves.

I was only bidding on small items and am happy I won six lots. I dropped out of several other lots when they went past new price. The vendors should be happy.

It seems the auction and its results have been taken offline? https://www.pickles.com.au/trucks/it...Items/44001023

I heard the FWD was sold for its reserve price at AUD 40k. Like you said, the vendors should be happy with the results (not with the loss of Kevin Purcell of course).
