Gooding & Company will return to Florida for its 2012 Amelia Island Auction on Friday, March 9th.

Held on the grounds of the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, the 3rd annual Gooding & Company Amelia Island sale will feature a 1953 Fiat 8V Zagato (estimate $750,000 – $900,000), a matching-numbers 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing (estimate $700,000 – $900,000) with factory-installed Rudge wheels, a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 (estimate $275,000 – $350,000) and a 1947 Ford Sportsman (estimate $225,000 – $275,000).

“We’re pleased to return to Amelia Island to offer collectors a wide variety of automobiles that everyone loves, such as a rare and sporting Fiat 8V Zagato, iconic 300 SL Gullwing and the all-American Ford Sportsman,” says David Gooding, President and founder of Gooding & Company. “We’ve shared a few thrilling auction moments with our guests in Amelia Island the past two years with the record-breaking sales and bidding rallies over the 1931 Voisin Mylord Demi-Berline as well as post-war Ferrari 212 and Lamborghini Miura P400 SV Prototype. With this year’s early consignments in mind, I expect another exciting Amelia Island Auction ahead.”
