Our 2019 Parts Auction!

Saturday February 16, 2019 :::: Annual Corvair Parts Auction

Location:  Ashley's Auto Body, 274 Hillside Avenue, Flanders, NJ 07836
Date:  Saturday, February 16, 2019
Time:  9:00 AM to 2:30 PM
Price:  Admission is free

Our annual Parts Auction, an NJACE club staple now dating back more than 30 years and one of our most popular events of the year, is all set for Saturday, February 16 2019, indoors at Ashley's Auto Body on Hillside Avenue in Flanders.

At the auction our shameless auctioneers offer Corvair parts and Corvair-related items to the highest bidder, with a 10% commission of the sale price going to the club treasury.  You may bring parts to sell, you may buy, or you may do both, or you may just come to enjoy the fun.

Here is what you need to know to fully enjoy the day:

First, plan on making a day of it.  Due to the nature of how the auction operates, it is not possible to process any buyers or sellers until the auction is completed.  Doors open at 9:00 AM for set-up, we begin the bidding at 10:30 AM, take a pizza break at 12:30, resume the bidding at 1:00 PM, and finish up typically around 2:30 PM.  Only at that time can we tally the sales, collect from the buyers, and pay the sellers.

Second, plan on getting there early.  As we said we'll open the doors at 9:00 AM, to allow time to tag and display any parts you are selling, and to allow you to peruse the parts being offered. If you're selling, you will need to fill out an Auction Lot Card for each part or group of parts being sold as one, so please allow sufficient time to do this before the start of bidding.

Each attendee will be issued a Bidder Number by which the auction desk will track all purchases.  The Auction Lot Card form is available on the NJACE website so you can print what you need and fill them out in advance:

But you can also get blank lot cards that day.

Corvair-only, please:

We ask that items being offered be limited to Corvair parts or Corvair-related items, only.  Also, we ask that you not bring more than one of the same item to sell.  You can, however, sell multiple items in a "lot."  You could offer, say, one lot of six oil filters, instead of six individual oil filters.  Remember that only quality items sell easily. Greasy, rusty, bent and broken pieces have limited appeal.

The club will deduct a 10% commission on all sales.  You may also donate items for the full benefit of the club.  Did we mention that lunch is included at no charge?

Snow Date?

Now, what about that "Snow Date?"  We will invoke a snow date only if the weather makes traveling difficult or if accumulated snow has rendered the Ashley's parking lot inaccessible.  Generally speaking, you can assume that the event is "on," but if it is necessary to postpone we will get the word out via email.

Ashley's Auto Body is located at 274 Hillside Avenue, Flanders, NJ 07836. See you there, and bring a chair
