The Leake Auction Company Oklahoma City 2013 sale was held February 22-23 in the Cox Pavilion on the OKC Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, resulting in $5.6 million in sales and a 75% sell-through rate.
“In 2012 we hit the tipping point in Oklahoma City. We needed more space to accommodate our growth,” said Richard Sevenoaks, president of Leake Auction Company. “This year we added a third building to showcase vehicles, which allowed us to add 100 more vehicles to the auction. We increased our total sales this year by $1.4 million. Next year we plan to expand even more. Oklahoma City continues to be a thriving collector car market.”
The top result at the 2013 Leake Oklahoma City auction went to a 1969 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro that sold for $190,000, followed by the 1936 Lincoln Model K Brunn at $130,000. Other notable results included a 2010 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake that made $90,000 and a 1957 Chevrolet Nomad for $85,000.
A standing room only crowd enjoyed the wide variety of cars crossing the auction block including Corvettes, Camaros, Mustangs, street rods, hot rods, customs, pickups and other specialty vehicles. A total of 390 lots were offered and 292 were sold during the two-day auction.
