What may very well the largest ever auction of vintage Mack trucks is being held later this month in New Hampshire.
Ryan Auction Sales, Inc. will auction more than 125 Mack trucks along with parts and memorabilia Aug. 19 in Henniker, New Hampshire. A preview will be held Aug. 18 at the auction site, 1492 Old Concord Road in Henniker, which is northwest of Manchester.
Stacy Libby, general manager of Ryan Auction Sales said this sale will be a special event for several reasons.
First and foremost, 100 or so of the trucks going up for bid come from one man’s collection. Libby said Jeff Remillard has been collecting trucks — Macks, Autocars, Brockways and Whites — since he was 8 years old and feels it is time to “thin the herd” and let his 12-year-old son start restoring trucks of his own.
Libby said the Aug. 18 is an a absolute auction; there are no minimum prices and no reserves.
Libby said she is also expecting a “massive, massive crowd.”
There’s good reason to expect a large turnout for the sale as it will include some of the rarest of finds from Remillard’s collection. Among the noteworthy Bulldogs going on the block are:
Also for sale will be a large lot of Mack watch fobs, and numerous pieces of heavy equipment.
