Springtime in the Keystone State means it’s time for the annual Carlisle Classic Car Swap Meet, one of the largest in the country.  A two-day auction, this year featuring over 400 vehicles, is a major part of this mega event.  The auction featured Corvettes, Cadillacs, a gorgeous 1956 Ford Sunliner, a pair of vintage Packards, and even a rare 1956 Lincoln Premier convertible.

The top sale was an original first-year Corvette.  Only 300 Vettes were built in 1953 with this one being #100 in the production run.  Multiple collectors wanted this special Corvette, so a bidding war broke out that didn’t end until the hammer finally fell at $300,000.

Here are the top 10 sales, as well as a look at some of the other eye-catching automobiles at this year’s event in Carlisle, PA.
