Need a reminder?
The Committee for the Estate of Mr. Dennis Erickson writes in an email to potential buyers:
Dear Interested Buyer,
We apologize for the delay in sending out this correspondence to you regarding the potential sale of the Mr. Dennis Erickson Estate car collection . The committee has been in substantial conversations about how we plan to proceed with this incredibly generous donation.
As you may or may not be aware of, the collection has been featured extensively through multiple news and media outlets (see below link). Many of these outlets have requested follow-up interviews and stories to document the completion of the sale of this incredible collection, the story of its eventual new home, and how the funds will be used to expand our ministries here at the church.
The committee has determined that we will make the collection available for viewing to those buyers who are interested in purchasing the collection in its entirety . Please be aware that the committee has already determined a value that we believe the collection is worth. If no offers are received at this price or above, we will hire an auction company to proceed with the liquidation process of this collection. If you are interested in viewing the collection with the intentions of placing an offer to purchase, please contact us immediately to arrange a time to do so.
All offers must be submitted no later than June 27th, 2016.
We will also be taking offers to purchase Mr. Erickson’s drivable cars and will determine final buyers by June 27th, 2016. These cars will be featured and available for viewing at the MSRA
Back to the 50’s car event held here in St. Paul on the dates of June 17th-19th. The cars available to purchase are as follows:
-1959 Edsel Villager Star Blue and Jet Stream Blue (Mileage 72,865)
