Ten Auction World Records Achieved at The Jack Hogan Collection sale of Ford Motorcars

. July 4, 2007

The success of the Jack Hogan Collections sale of Ford motorcars far exceeded expectations on June 30th in Aurora, Oregon. Bonhams & Butterfields principal auctioneer and CEO Malcolm Barber sold to an enthusiastic throng of Ford collectors whod filled Hogans hangar on a sunny Saturday.

The gathered crowd consisted of serious Ford V8 collectors from the four corners of the United States and Europe, as well as long time friends looking to secure a ˜keepsake€™ from the collection. Telephone bidders representing top US collectors and museums participated, and the $1.8-million results of this sale demonstrate, without a doubt, that focused single-owner collections are the recipe for auction success. The collectors market has always been strong for early Ford V8s, and according to one participant, Clearly the love affair ain’t over!”

Bonhams & Butterfields’ team and the vendor himself matched the crowd’s enthusiasm in equal measure. Dapper Jack Hogan, dressed in a dinner jacket, personally drove each and every vehicle in front of the gathered audience. He spoke for a short time, sharing with the audience personal anecdotes and his long involvement with many of the cars, and then handed the audience over to the auctioneer.

Malcolm Barber noted, “It was significant to have Jack Hogan introduce his cars and explain to the enthusiastic audience the meticulous work conducted on these cars while in his care. This attracted more confident bids and a record result. We are hoping to be back in the Northwest next year with another single-owner collection of like quality.”

Mark Osborne, Head of Bonhams & Butterfields’ American Motoring Department added, “Jack’s cars, whether they were Dearborn winners or beautiful original survivors, were exceptional. We had an impressive turn out, and achieved exceptional results. Jack was a pleasure to work with and the US Motoring Department embraced his enthusiasm from day one. This was Jack Hogan’s day, and we were all glad to be able to take part in presenting such a wonderful collection of motorcars to the open market.”

Achieving as many as ten world record results, the Jack Hogan Collection of Ford Motorcars sale was an unmitigated success and results stand at 100% of the lots sold.
