The auction featuring more than 700 rare vehicles and auto-themed collectibles owned by collector Ron Hackenberger of Norwalk, OH, garnered more than $2 million from the sales.

All of the items that sold, and final sale prices, are listed here for Day 1, and here for Day 2.

A 1947 Indian Chief motorcycle with sidecar drew the largest bid of any single item, according to the auction sale prices posted online. The rare bike sold for $36,000.

Other notable sales include a 1938 Studebaker Coupe Express Truck ($30,000); a 1969 Jaguar XKE Roadster ($30,000); a 1985 OWOSSO Pulse Autocycle ($15,000); a 1949 Tatra T600 Tatraplan sedan ($22,000), and a large, vintage Studebaker neon sign that sold for $9,000.

Hackenberger is a major Studebaker enthusiast, adding nearly 250 of them through the years as he built his vehicle collection he had originally planned to display in an auto museum dedicated to orphan, or otherwise rare, cars and other vehicles.
