Conditions of Sale


The property is being sold as a collector’s item to be displayed only. It has been partially deconstructed and therefore its physical integrity may be compromised. It is not intended for road use and is not being sold as a means of transportation.

Certificate of TitleA certificate of title may be necessary in order for the purchaser to acquire marketable title to the property and would be required if the property were to be used as a motor vehicle within the United States of America. Phillips makes no warranties or representations in connection with any existing vehicle regulation or certificate of title or with the issuance of any new certificate of title by any state of the United States or any foreign government. The purchaser of any property who intends to use such property on the road is solely responsible for complying with all applicable Federal and state regulations regarding title, registration, insurance, licensing, emission control, safety equipment and roadworthiness. Please contact a specialist for more information.

Extent of Phillips' LiabilityNeither the seller nor we, nor any of our officers, employees or agents, are responsible for the correctness of any statement of whatever kind concerning any lot, whether written or oral, nor for any other errors or omissions in the description of, or for any faults or defects in, any lot. Neither the seller, ourselves, our officers, employees or agents, give any representation, warranty or guarantee or assume any liability of any kind in respect of any lot with regard to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, description, size, quality, condition, genuineness, rarity, importance, provenance, or historical relevance. Phillips has to rely on information as to date, condition and authenticity provided by the seller, and cannot undertake a level of inspection of the vehicle to establish whether or not the vehicle corresponds to any relative description of condition in the catalogue. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to carry out such inspection as the purchaser thinks necessary. Phillips is not liable for any loss caused by a misdescription or misrepresentation. Except as required by local law, any warranty of any kind whatsoever is excluded by this paragraph. In any case, the purchaser’s sole remedy with respect to any purchase shall be a refund of the purchase price paid upon the return of the lot in the same condition as at the time of the sale.

No WarrantyAll property is sold “as is” and neither Phillips nor the consignor makes any explicit or implied warranty or representations of any kind or nature with respect to the property. In no event shall Phillips or the consignor be responsible for the correctness of, or be deemed to have made, any representations or warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, description, size, quality, genuineness, rarity, importance, provenance, historical relevance or condition concerning the property or any warranty that any lot complies with any applicable Federal or state laws, regulations or ordinances of any kind or nature whatsoever, and no statement set forth in this catalogue or made at the sale or in the bill of sale or invoice or elsewhere, whether oral or written, shall be deemed such a warranty or representation or an assumption of liability.

The property is being sold as a collector’s item to be displayed only. It has been partially deconstructed and therefore its physical integrity may be compromised. It is not intended for road use and is not being sold as a means of transportation. No warranties are or will be made that any of the property is roadworthy or complies with any applicable governmental rules, regulations or ordinances of any kind or nature whatsoever. The benefits of these Conditions of Sale are not assignable and shall be applicable only to the original purchaser of the lots and not subsequent assigns, purchasers, heirs, owners or others who have or may acquire an interest in the purchased lot. Prospective purchasers should carefully inspect the property before bidding in order to identify any issues relating to condition or description that may have not been described in the catalogue, including repairs and restorations. Phillips makes no representation or warranty as to the accuracy of “mileage” or odometer readings.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the purchaser’s role and exclusive remedy against Phillips and the seller, in place of any other remedy which might be available, is the cancellation of the sale and the refund of the original purchase price paid for the lot. Neither Phillips nor the seller will be liable for any special, incidental or consequential damages including, without limitation, loss of profits, nor for interest.
