Auburn, Ind. (WANE) – Thousand of cars will be driven into the historic Auburn Auction Park for a Labor Day tradition more than 40 years old.
The most expensive car in the lineup is a 1935 Duesenberg Model SJ Dual-Cowl Phaeton by LaGrande. The 1935 Duesenberg was privately owned since 1978 and is estimated to be worth at least $1.4 million.
Two cars will be auctioned off to benefit two charities. A 1964 Chevrolet Impala Convertible was donated by Jerry Rathburn, founder of Rathburn Tool & Manufactuing, to benefit Honor Flight of Northeast Indiana. Honor Flight is a nonprofit organization that takes veterans to Washington, D.C.
A 1952 Mercury Monterey Convertible will also be at the auction. Proceeds from that car will go to the Antique Automobile Club of America.
The ACD Festival will also have a private collection of 26 antique tractors, classic automotive parts and some celebrity appearances.
Gates will open Wednesday, August 27 at 9 a.m. in the Auburn Auctions Park. The festival runs through Sunday, August 31.
