Leake Auction Company started the year out right with its annual Oklahoma City sale bringing in their highest ever numbers for this event at $6.7M. This 6% bump from last year’s totals can be attributed to a noticeable increase in consignments, although the sell-through rate dropped by 7% from last year to 65%. The sale included a good mix of classic cars, customs and performance luxury vehicles. The top sale went to a 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Speedster at $190,300. This is hardly a surprising result, as these cars have been rocketing upward in value over the past year. There were very few produced to begin with, and many are still in excellent shape since quite a few were purchased as instant collectibles. Not far behind was a Pro-Touring-built 1967 Corvette Convertible, which sold for $154,000 and came sporting a modern Corvette drivetrain, modern suspension and no-expense-spared exterior presentation.
