‘Weird’ ‘Cherokee’ auto auction goes to auction with auction house
- by admin
An auto auction in Tennessee has become a hit with a fan who has been bidding on a ‘Cheroskie’ auto that has been missing since 2007.
Auctioneer Robert J. Johnson says the auction house is selling a “very nice” 1954 Chevy Cherokee for $2,500.
Johnson said the car was on loan from the dealership to his brother, who owns a salvage business in the Knoxville area.
The car was recently repainted, and the auction is going to go to the winning bidder.
Johnson has been a regular on the auction block since he moved from Missouri to Tennessee to pursue a career in the auto industry.
The “Cherokie” is one of the last remaining ‘Chesterys’ in the U.S. and was the only one left in the country before the end of World War II.
It’s worth more than $10 million.
Johnson says he doesn’t have any plans to take it on the road.
He hopes the car will one day go to a museum.
He’s hoping to sell the car at a “high price” for the people of the state who will see it, Johnson said.
He said it’s been “one of my favorite cars.”
