Worldwide to kick off with the Monical Collection Auction


Arlington, Texas. March 1, 2017. Save the date for Worldwide Auctioneers' 16th annual Texas auction, which this year relocates from Houston to an exciting new venue at the Arlington Convention center in Dallas, right in the heart of the burgeoning Arlington Entertainment District. The Texas Classic Auction is scheduled for Saturday April 22, running in conjunction with the no reserve Monical Collection Auction on Friday April 21.

"Worldwide continues to expand and we needed a significantly bigger and more central venue, with easy access for all our customers and the potential to showcase all consignments indoors." said Rod Egan, Principal & Chief Auctioneer. "Arlington fits the bill perfectly and we're looking forward to a great weekend in this vibrant and ever growing part of central Texas, with the Cowboys AT&T Stadium, Six Flags over Texas and Globe Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers as neighbors."

The event kicks off on Friday April 21st with the Monical Collection Auction, an eclectic line up of cars expertly assembled over the years by Texas collector Bobby Monical. "We've been long-time friends with the Monical family and we're delighted to have been offered the chance to present this great collection entirely without reserve," said John Kruse, Principal & Auctioneer. "There is something for everyone here, from antique to pre-war motorcars, through fifties convertibles, trucks and quintessential American sports cars and there is something a little special about every car." Among the highlights are a decorated 1953 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster, recipient of a coveted Duntov Award and an AACA Senior Award winning 1959 Ford Custom Ranchero Pickup.

The Texas Classic Auction starts on Saturday April 22nd at an 11am, with over 100 hand selected fine motorcars lined up to go under the hammer. Also moving to Arlington for the first time is the 6th annual Concours d'Elegance of Texas of which Worldwide is a founding sponsor, scheduled for Sunday April 23.
