Monday is usually (according to the data) a little slower in sales vs Tue/Wed/Thu.(Fri usually the slowest day) Yesterday however sales were significantly higher than previous Mondays. I'll be keeping a close eye on how this trends going forward.

As a data nerd, I take pleasure in examining various facets of the cars being auctioned. Among these is the palette of colors that graces these vehicles. While the analysis of this topic deserves a dedicated post of its own, I must mention that it is worth noting the anomaly observed yesterday. Tthe absence of black cars, which typically enjoy a significant presence in the market. I'm sure tomorrow we'll be back to a whole host of black cars in the top 10!

Fully-Restored 1948 Ford F1 Pickup with Powerful 350 V8 Engine and Vintage Air System Hits Auction Block

350 powered 1948 ford f1 pickup

The Ford F-Series pickup trucks were first introduced in 1948, and the F1 was the first model in this lineup. The F1 was a half-ton pickup truck and was available with either a six-cylinder or an eight-cylinder engine. It was a popular work truck and was used by farmers, small business owners, and tradespeople. Today, the F1 is a sought-after classic truck, and enthusiasts often restore them to their original condition or customize them with modern upgrades.

This 1948 Ford F1 pickup is up for auction and has been rotisserie-restored with a number of features added to it. The exterior is finished in white with chrome bumpers, new stainless steel trim, and a stepside pickup box with a wood plank bed floor. It also features black steel wheels with chrome dog dish hub caps and trim rings wrapped in whitewall radial tires.

The interior is upholstered in brown vinyl with a floor-mounted shifter, manual windows, power steering, power brakes, and an aftermarket turn signal system with safety flashers. The Omega Kustom Instruments cluster includes a 140-mph speedometer and gauges for the fuel level, voltage, oil pressure, and temperature. Under the hood, a 350ci V8 crate engine is backed by a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission. The truck also has a solid I-beam front axle and a solid rear drive axle with a dual exhaust system exiting at the rear.

This auction is up for auction on Autohunter.


Have you ever been curious about the upper echelons of the auction car market? The crème de la crème of automotive sales? Well, let me enlighten you with some of the latest figures.

The highest price ever paid for a car on any auction website is a staggering $5,360,000 for a 161-Mile 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta. And, to no one's surprise, the sale was made on Bring A Trailer in May 22.


Bring A Trailer has also had an impressive track record, selling 65 cars over $1 million in the last two years, dwarfing its closest competitor Collecting Cars, which has sold only 11 cars over $1m. Meanwhile, Doug Demuro's (is it still Doug's?) Cars & Bids have yet to reach the million-dollar mark, with their highest sale being $451K for a 2022 Lamborghini.

In the last two months alone, there have been 10 sales of cars worth over $1 million, a testament to the ever-growing auction car market. However, no car has sold for more than $2 million in that time. Could we be on the brink of another record-breaking sale? Only time will tell.
