The NJ Assn of Corvair Enthusiasts' annual indoor Corvair Parts Auction,
postponed from February 15, is now all set for this Saturday, March 1.
There is no admission charge and lunch is included! We always have a
lot of fun, and people come in from several states. Here are all the
The auction takes place at Ashley's Auto Body on Hillside Avenue in
Flanders, New Jersey. At this event, new and used Corvair parts and
accessories are sold at auction, 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!
Doors open at 9:00 for set-up, bidding begins at 10:30 AM
Did we mention that lunch is included at no charge?
Directions appear below. Here is what you need to know to fully enjoy
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 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. 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 a Lot Card for each part or
group of parts being sold individually, so please allow sufficient time
to do this before the start of bidding. Want to get a head start? We
can send you a PDF file of the Lot Card so that you can print your own
and fill them out in advance. Send an off-list message to me to receive
the Lot Card file.
If you are buying -- or even if you think you are not buying -- you will
be issued a Bidder Number by which the auction desk will track all
We ask that items being offered be limited to Corvair parts or
Corvair-related items, only. Typically we have upwards of 200 lots to
get through, so we are not able to deal with items outside of this
Also, we ask that you not bring more than one of the same item to sell.
It is difficult to sell, in an auction setting, multiples of the same
thing. You can, however, sell multiple items in a "lot." You could
offer, say, one lot of six oil filters, instead of six individual oil
Remember that only quality items sell easily, and that greasy, rusty
junk will not only not sell, our very picky auctioneers may not even try
to sell it! Bent and broken pieces have limited appeal. Also, we
usually have more than enough hubcaps and wheelcovers.
The club will deduct a 10% commission on all sales. You may specify a
"reserve" price (the minimum bid that you are willing to accept), you
may specify no reserve, or you may donate items for the full benefit of
Again, the doors open at 9:00 AM for setup, this Saturday, March 1.
