Leake Auction Company has early consignments for six automobiles that are recognized and accepted as full classic automobiles during their 41st annual Tulsa auction, June 7, 8 & 9 in the Expo Building at the Tulsa Fairgrounds. The Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) defines a classic car as a distinctive, American or foreign built car that was produced between 1925 and 1948. Since these cars were typically very expensive when they were manufactured, limited quantities were produced, therefore making them more valuable and highly sought after.
One of the cars crossing the block will be a 1931 Cadillac Series 370-A Convertible Coupe. Originally introduced in October of 1930, a V-12 roadster was used as a pace car in the 1931 Indianapolis 500. This Fleetwood body Cadillac features a V-12 engine, synchromesh transmission, wire wheels, covered dual side mounts, golf club door and a rumble seat.
Another vehicle in the line-up is a 1934 Cadillac Fleetwood Model 370D All Weather Phaeton featuring a V-12 OHV/133 HP engine. It is one of three ever built with a V-12. The Fleetwood built body highlights the beautiful woodwork of this Harley J. Earl design. It also includes a manual 3-speed transmission, dual side mounts, sumptuous red leather interior, wide whitewall tires, a travel trunk and a roll down divider window.
Other CCCA vehicles crossing the block include a 1937 Cord Model 812 Phaeton, a 1931 Lincoln Model L, a 1931 Cadillac Series 355-A Roadster and a 1947 Cadillac Series 62.

Undoubtedly we will have additional classics by the auction in June,” stated Richard Sevenaoks, president of Leake Auction Company. “These vehicles will range from touring models to museum quality.
