Retro Garage’s biggest blockbusters were auctioned in 4 minutes

This is called natural evolution. In 2015, he started with an idea and a vision of comfortable indoor sales of retro auto-moto components, supplemented by a nationwide attractive auction of veterans. He persevered, held, regularly held two stock exchanges a year, and already this summer he knocked out a rare export Škoda 100 L for a price of 1.85 million crowns in a heart attack. Also this autumn, the architect of Retro Garage, Pavel Kočí, grabbed a hammer and auctioned, among other things, two complete pits – the intact Škoda 105 with a range of 684 km and the rare Jawa 500 OHC 01.

It was alive again on the auction stage and there were six hundred

We won’t strain you at all, both machines were down in four minutes, so the record from the summer was not repeated, however, both machines went to the new owners for interesting amounts.

Jawa 500 OHC 01 started to be auctioned at 13:12 at CZK 600,000, while the minimum selling price was set at CZK 800,000. Already at 1:16 pm Pavel Kočí reported the final amount of CZK 905,000 and congratulated the new owner on the purchase.

The Škoda 105 S, whose run-up is only 684 km, went to auction at 2:13 p.m. with a starting price of CZK 300,000 and an auction reserve set at CZK 100,000 higher. At 14:17 there was nothing to bid, as this car was won by interested parties from Slovakia for the final CZK 605,000.

There were certainly many more machines for sale and you could get acquainted with them in some detail in our October invitation. We now bring you complete auction results:

The pre-war (1934) motorcycle of Česká zbrojovka with the designation 175 and production number 150/2 046 was supposed to go for at least CZK 329,000, but in the end it was not expensive at all, because no one signed up for it.

ČZ 175 (1934) in the end without a new owner

The Velorex 16/250 from 1960 had an auction reserve set at CZK 199,000 and also went out into the world for it.

In addition to the auctions, you could also see / buy old American pick-ups, twelve-cylinder German crashes, old Rolls-Royce, racing Fiat 131, the amazing Škoda 1000 MBX in perfect condition and other gems. Týnec Jawa or Triumph or Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealers also had their presentation here. One lucky guy also took a nice Pioneer from the raffle, which could really be won by any participant with a valid ticket.

Lovers of the stock exchange and veteše have certainly come to their senses, as most of the local covered and uncovered areas were inhabited by sellers of everything that has to do with auto-moto veterans. In short, there was a lot of it.

Were you not present? It doesn’t matter, the next Retro Garage is preliminarily planned for April 9, 2022. As there is more and more interest in veterans’ auctions, they will probably grow and Pavel Kočí hopes that once the auctioned machines will occupy one huge hall of Výstaviště Lysá nad Labem.

Well, we are only in favor, because our country needs some reputable auction company focused on old cars. And as you can see, one ambitious friend has a relatively good start to this dream. So we keep our fingers crossed for him, and as soon as we find out what other veteran interest he’s planning for all of us, we’ll let you know.
