    Default 1848 - 2015 Auction and Sales Activity

    1848 - Leake Auction Lot #798 Tulsa June 7, 2015

    Another thread posted three cars from the Klairmont Collection that will be auctioned by Leake auctions on 6/7/15. 1848 is one of 150 cars belonging to Larry Klairmont of Chicago, IL.

    This thread has been established to specifically facilitate tracking tracking of and searching for 1848.

    1848 first appeared on the radar when it was shown at the 1969 LCOC Eastern National Meet in Gilbertsville, Kentucky.

    From a Mark II standpoint this meet was significant because this was the only time that Mark II Convertible 3190 owned by Walter Goeppinger and 1126 Owned by Alf Cooper (now Barry Wolk) appeared together.

    The 1848 history has been updated and can be found at this link:

    Below are pictures from the Leake auction listing.

    One final comment 1848 was one of the 400 or so cars that we call the "class of 1984" because after that year they disappeared (graduated) from LCOC records.

    1848 "re-enrolled" in 2001 and is now going to Leake in Tulsa!

    That's quite a markup since the Leake Auction. I wonder what has been done to the car to explain the price differential?

    Bought by Bob Pass, very shrewd, big collector, founder and former owner of Passport Car Carriers. Felt could buy and turnaround and get instant 55% profit. Bodes well for Mark values.

    Default 1848 Auctions America Auburn, Sept 2, 2015.

    1848 is FS at Auctions America Auburn, Sept 2, 2015. http://classiccars.com/listings/view...-indiana-46706

    Description reads:

    To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at Auctions America’s Auburn Fall event, September 2-6, 2015.Chassis No.C56A1848Estimate:$ 50,000 - $ 60,000 The Mark II was manufactured by the short-lived Continental Division of the Ford Motor Company. Designed by William Clay Ford, the Mark II had a sticker price of $10,400, twice the price of the standard 1956 Lincoln offerings. Much of the car was assembled by hand, and Ford claimed it lost approximately $1,000 on each example sold. It is believed that the profit loss was because of the attempt to promote the Continental over the Cadillac Brougham. The unprofitable Mark II and the Continental Division were discontinued after Ford went public in 1956, even though these cars brought people into the showrooms to buy additional Ford products.

    The Mark II offered here has been beautifully restored, and has resided in a private collection where it has been well maintained over the years. It is completed in with black paintwork that shows charmingly with wide whitewall tires and full wheel covers. The interior has white leather upholstery highlighted with red piping that matches the red cut pile carpeting. This car has full power equipment; an AM radio and air conditioning that was a Lincoln dealership installed option. Powering this luxury motorcar is a 368-cid eight-cylinder engine, married to a fully automatic transmission.
    Ford originally planned to build about 2,000 Mark IIs a year for five years. The reality turned out to be 2,550 built in the 1956 model year and 444 more in the following year. It is reported that approximately 1,500 examples are still in existence.
