Julien’s Auctions, the world record-breaking auction house, closed out its headline-making 2017 auction season honoring one of the greatest artists of all time, Neil Young. Property from the collection of Neil Young rocked the auction block December 9, 2017 in Los Angeles as rock and roll memorabilia collectors and superfans of the music legend across the globe bid live on the floor, online and on the phone for a chance to take home a piece of the two-time inducted Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s iconography and cherished personal items. A portion of proceeds from the auction will benefit The Bridge School.    Three of Young’s extraordinary classic cars were the auction’s stand out items including: his rare 50th anniversary special edition 1953 Buick code 76X Roadmaster Skylark convertible, which was the first car off the assembly line for this model (total production: 1,690) with two-tone red and white leather interior and a steering wheel hub that denotes “customized for Neil Young” and selling for an astounding $400,000 above its estimate $200,000-$300,000; a rare 1941 Chrysler Series 28 Windsor Highlander 2-Door 3-Person coupe, which was once owned by Steve McQueen, which sold for $35,200 (well over its original estimate $15,000-$20,000); and a 1948 Buick Roadmaster Hearse built by Flxible, nicknamed “Mort II” similar to the one used by Young and his band, The Squires, to haul their equipment to gigs in the early 1960’s and served as the theme of Young’s song, “Long May You Run” that sold for $31,250 well over its original estimate of $8,000-$10,000.   Over 230 pieces of Young’s beloved and magnificent model trains from his lifelong collection of Lionel trains sold for nearly $300,000. Highlights included a Prototype Lionel 1954 Western Pacific 6464-100 Boxcar and a Prototype AEC Switcher from the Lionel Archives, which both sold for $11,250 and well above their original estimate range of $2,000-$10,000; the custom painted Horde Tour Commodore Vanderbilt Hudson 4-6-4 Locomotive that sold for $10,000; and a Prototype Lionel 2242 New Haven F-3 A-B Locomotive, which sold for $8,750.
