Owls Head — The Owls Head Transportation Museum will host its 37th Annual New England Auto Auction of antique, classic, and special-interest vehicles Saturday, Aug. 16.

Previously featured in The Wall Street Journal and Hemmings Motor News, the Auction is recognized as the real thing, offering up to 200 vehicles of great variety.

The museum’s auction staff would love to talk with people about early consignment for their vehicle in the auction. Acting now to secure a place in 2014 auction lineup will enable one to benefit from the museum's vast schedule of pre-sale promotions, which include advertisements and editorial features in a broad range of national and regional publications, as well as the museum’s own array of dedicated print materials and social-media campaigns. Early commitment allows auction organizers to maximize its resources to better showcase the vehicle, garnering greater interest from potential buyers worldwide. As space in the auction is limited to 200 vehicles, time is of the essence in claiming a spot.

Aug. 11 begins Auction Preview Week, during which consigned vehicles will be on prominent display at the museum. This time allows both the press and potential buyers to inspect vehicles in advance of the auction. Additionally, the presale display assures each vehicle’s maximal visibility during the busy summer season.

Vehicles sold in 2013’s auction included, among many others, a 1960 Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupe, a 1930 Ford Model A Sport Coupe, a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Convertible, and a 1973 Triumph X-75 Hurricane motorcycle.
