Ronald Warren Estate - Aviation Barn Finds

Musser Bros. Inc. in cooperation with Silver Collector Car Auctions is pleased to present the Ronald Warren Aircraft Estate Auction.

Mr. Warren was an aviator, fisherman and entrepreneur and amassed an eclectic collection of aircraft.


While normally, we would prefer to present the aircraft and items in a state of ultimate detail and spit-shined, circumstances were such that we were not able to do so.  You now have the incredible opportunity to bid your price on some  "barn find" aircraft, presented to you in much the way they were found.  All aircraft have sat for at least four years and are not airworthy.  Please review all photos and logbooks presented and have fun bidding on this barn find collection.

Caldwell, ID, Homedale, ID and Toledo, WA

These hangars will be open for preview on Saturday, November 27th from 10am - 3pm and again on Tuesday, November 30th from 10am-3pm.  If you are driving to the Caldwell airport, we will have a shuttle running from Gate 4 all day during preview.  All other airports are accessible.

A buyer's premium of 11% of the high bid will be added to the high bid to determine the final sales price for the auction lot. Example: $100 bid + $11.00 BP = $111.00 invoice amount

Beginning at the stated closing time, the auction software will conclude bidding for one or more lots each minute in catalog order with the following exception: if a bid is placed with 30 seconds or less remaining for that lot, bidding for that lot will remain open until 30 seconds passes without any further bid advances.

Please note that some lots can be tied together and will be set to close simultaneously.  This will be indicated in those lots by a chainlink symbol and corresponding letter. The chainlink symbol means that each lot tied will stay in extension until there are no more bids on any of the lots that are tied.

Until the auction begins to close, the bidding software will notify bidders by email when they have been outbid. 

Please be aware that when placing your "Maximum Bid", the website will bid on your behalf up to your set maximum bid by the preset bid increments. The system will bid at the preset increment until the bidders "Maximum bid" is exceeded. At that point, the bidder will be notified that he/she has been outbid (if that option is selected when registering). High bidder will only pay one increment more than the competing bidder. 

Each lot will sell to the highest bidder without reserve, unless noted otherwise.

All sellers are contractually prohibited from bidding on lots they have consigned to the auction.
