History of
Worldwide Auctioneers

With an annual schedule comprising four strategically located regional sales - in Scottsdale, AZ, Arlington, TX, Pacific Grove, CA, and Auburn, IN - in addition to select, stand-alone auctions of private collections, we've been privileged to have handled and sold an exceptionally diverse selection of great motorcars over the years, from vintage racers to European sports cars, brass era and pre-war cars to select American muscle and '50s convertibles. We're delighted to have broken a few world records along the way and invite you to visit our results section and enjoy some of the highlights.

Formed almost 20 years ago, vintage motorcar specialists Rod Egan and John Kruse, Worldwide Auctioneers reflects the passion and expertise of each. Long term car enthusiasts, both John and Rod literally grew up in the auction business, holding management and partnership positions at some of the biggest auction houses in the United States, refining their trade, working with many of the best known cars and collectors in the market.

In addition to helping collectors buy and sell cars at auction, we offer specialist appraisal, estate management and collection consultancy services. Our dedicated private sales division serves the needs of individual collectors who seek to acquire vehicles which may not be available on the open market, or for whom privacy is important.

We have augmented our capabilities with some serious corporate capabilities including a regional sales team of car experts, a document center specialist, public relations and an expanded video and graphics department. Worldwide continues to be a part of its community as avid car enthusiasts and collectors, serving on the board of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum among others. Worldwide continues to expand.
