Kenny and Wendy Wolf Collection: Results from the First Installment
This Callahan salesman sample is believed to be the only one in existence and sold for $23,625.
Old iron brought big bucks at the first of two installments of the Kenny and Wendy Wolf Collection auction, Nov. 7-9, 2019. The online auction, hosted by Aumann Auctions Inc., featured more than 100 gas engines as well as portable steam engines and other pieces of early machinery.
Mentioned in the February/March 2020 issue of Gas Engine Magazine, the Wolf Collection is known as one of the finest private collections of gas engines in the world, and the winning bids received for some of the rarer engines certainly supported that notion. Among the rare engines to go under the hammer, a 6 HP Miller camstopper sold for $42,000, a Charter engine went for $35,700, and a mostly original 4 HP Ohio sold for $26,250. Also notable were the high prices obtained by some early scale-model salesman sample engines as well as some contemporary scale models built by Wayne Grenning.
If you wanted a piece of this historic collection but weren’t willing to spend the big bucks, there were also plenty of good bargains to be had. Among some of the more affordable — but still interesting — engines on the block were a 1-1/2 HP Ideal by Goold, Shapley and Muir that sold for $840, and a 1 HP Rock Island that went for $861.
Those who missed out on the first installment will get another chance on June 30, 2020, with the second installment of the auction, also hosted online by Aumann. The second installment will feature more than 100 gas engines, antiques, engine parts, equipment and more, including engines made by Otto, Cook, Lambert, Brown and Cochran, Crossley, Ruston & Hornsby, Domestic, Fairbanks, International, New Way and others. Photos and full descriptions will be on the Aumannsite beginning in April.
