Girard Auction April 11-12 Soukup Toyland Museum Auction

WAKONDA, SD – Girard Auction & Land Brokers, Inc. is proud to offer the second round of auctions with items from the Harold Soukup Estate of North Bend, NE.

Back in October of 2013, we offered the first round of this massive estate in a 2-day auction featuring his collection of Smith-Miller & Pressed Steel Trucks along with several hundred promo cars.

Day 1 of this two day auction will be an afternoon session starting at 4:00 p.m.. The first day will have about 400 cataloged lots. This will include over 200 lots of both Plastic and Slush Mold Metal Promo Cars.

“Mr. Soukup’s Promo Car collection is unbelievable”, says Ken Girard, principal auctioneer for the company. “His collection is heavily focused on Chrysler products, but does include a little bit of everything.” This auction will feature several late 1960’s and early 1970’s MOPAR Muscle car promos along with some great class 1950’s models. There is also some very unusual Slush Mold Promo Trucks including some seldom seen “WHITE” models.

The balance of lots in the first session will be about 200 lots of “City” Toys. This includes some great Tin-Litho Friction, Wind-up Toys, Battery Operated and much more.

Everything is included — Trucks, Cars, Motorcycles, Boats, Airplanes, Firetrucks — even some unusual boxed sets.
