In case you’re not already familiar with Gooding & Company, the auction house renowned for selling some of the world’s most precious automobiles, allow us to introduce you. With many world records set for high hammer sales, they might have seemed slightly out of budget to the average car enthusiast. Not all of us are buying cars over $10,000,000, though we’d certainly like to.
But recently, the auction house has extended their reach, now offering automobilia and lifestyle lots in their series of online auctions, entitled Geared Online. There’s one hefty auction coming up with some amazing finds you won’t want to miss. Now you can get your hands on a piece of automobile history without having to make your wallet weep. If you’re looking to spice up your collection, or start building one altogether, we’ve got just the stuff for you.
Whether you hope to invest in some sweet clothing pieces either to display or to integrate into your vintage-loving wardrobe, there are tons of vintage motorcycle and racing pieces, like this stunning Belstaff Leather Motorcycle Jacket, or this ultra-cool Les Leston Vintage Racing Helmet from the late 50’s to early 60’s. There are incredible hidden gems, including a Chapal x Phoenix Project Elvis Presley Million Dollar Quartet Bomber Jacket, or a Club Team Lotus Jacket. Any racing enthusiasts need some vintage items to spice up their closet or decorate their showroom with? You’ve come to the right place.
If you’re a curio person, you’re in luck with this auction. There is what can only be described as a nearly endless selection of items to fawn over. All sourced from beloved collections, these specialty items are tailored to be passed to the next loving owner’s hands. That means anyone can get their hands on niche finds like Assorted Steering Wheels, Lucas Control Boxes, Voltage Regulators, and other beautifully appointed items. You may just find exactly what you’ve been trying to track down for years, like the selection of Assorted Vintage Electrical Wiring, or a Turn Signal Arm with a Colored Blinking End dated from 1967.
Of course, you may just be looking to deck out your showroom, in which case the vintage decor and items are a perfect match. Maybe your cup of tea is glorious Americana with a Wolf’s Head Motor Oil Sign, Gillette Tire Signs, and assorted vintage license plates. If you favor a foreign design sensibility such as these two Japanese Tin Plate Toys from the 1950’s or a beautiful selection of Porsche posters and steering wheels to hang on your walls, there is enough swag to go around.
One of the best parts about the Geared Online auction setup is that most of these glorious automobilia lots are available without reserve, so they’re all poised to sell for pocket-friendly prices. In fact, 100% of all the lots from previous Geared Online automobilia auctions have sold. If you have any questions about an item for sale, or want to learn more, Gooding & Company’s expert team of specialists is always ready to assist you.
