Hagerty’s first online auctions begin this week with a variety of classic and modern cars

Hagerty has created a new trusted, easy-to-use platform to buy and sell enthusiast cars at auction, via the online Hagerty Marketplace. The first 10-car capsule joining the platform includes a variety of vehicles and price ranges, with everything from a 1963 Ford Fairlane 500 Squire Wagon to a 2019 Ford GT.

What makes Hagerty’s Marketplace auctions unique? It’s the way that team members assist in the process from beginning to end. Sellers will work with the Hagerty Marketplace research team to craft the written description and curate photos for the listing. From there, the Hagerty Marketplace auction team will provide experienced support with pre-sale and post-sale logistics, including facilitating payment and transfer of ownership. Each buyer will provide a government-issued identification and credit card before bidding, ensuring that real enthusiasts are behind each bid. Each week will feature a new group of collector cars up for auction.

“Over the past few years, the collector car industry has seen exceptional growth in demand for online car auctions, driven by the convenience of bidding from practically anywhere,” said Kenneth Ahn, President of Hagerty Marketplace. “But when car collectors are buying and selling five, six, or seven-figure cars online, we believe there are areas for significant improvement over the status quo. Our goal is to provide an online auction platform that is differentiated by trust, with unparalleled level of service and data-driven expertise. We are excited to launch Hagerty’s Marketplace online auctions and we are committed to continuing to innovate and grow along with this emerging market.”

Cars currently listed on the brand new Marketplace online auctions:

1968 Ford Mustang GT/CS California Special

A lot of Mustangs claim to be “rare” and “collectible,” and even though they built millions they are still among the most popular classic cars. The GT/CS California Special was only made for seven months and only sold on the west coast, making this Mustang stand out in a very crowded field. This is a Mustang that attracts attention wherever it goes. With input from Shelby Automotive Inc, a V-8, a limited run of about 4000 cars, and this example’s largely unmodified status, this pony is truly collectible. Bid here.

2019 Ford GT

One of Ford’s most anticipated and dominant vehicles began life as a secret project influenced by the desire for victory in racing. Much more than an act of nostalgia, the second-generation GT was a carbon-fiber supercar with its eyes on Le Mans. Every design element was built to maximize downforce, minimize drag, and boost efficiency. The reworked 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine generates 647 hp and can hit 60 mph in under three seconds. Ford even hand-picked who would get to own the 1350 examples made and implemented an aggressive anti-flip contract. This is an example of a race car modified to be a road car. Watch a video of the car. Bid here.

The front-engine was mounted way back, and along with the gearbox in the rear, helped the 968 achieve its balanced weight distribution.
