$66k 1950s Packard shines at car auction

And Enzo Ferrari's favourite, the Jaguar E-type, brought over $56k at the Canadian auto sale

Toronto's Classic Car Auction passed off smoothly at the weekend. Although no estimates were given for the cars, and many were sold without reserve, they generally sold for good prices.

The little red arrow-head that is a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette sold for C$37,400 (US$34,782).* While the 1941 Packard 110 Convertible- Packard's venture into affordable car territory -sold for US$35,000.

A more luxurious Packard, the 1954 Packard Carribean Convertible achieved an impressive US$66,000.

The lowest of those we looked at was the imposing black Cadillac 62 Sedanette from 1946 which sold for a reasonable C$31,900 (US$29,667).

Moving towards the higher end, the shiny steel 1931 Ford Roadster Hot Rod (a very early Hot Rod) sold for $45,000, while the all-time classic which so impressed Enzo Ferrari, the Jaguar E-type (or XKE), was driven home for C$61,000 (US$56,730).
