Unusual Auction in Oklahoma

I was just reading an interesting article about the auction of more than 200 cars from the 1930s and '40s, including a 1917 Maxwell, in Oklahoma. Here is the link:

This auction includes a 1937 and 1940 Packard (no other descriptions). Here is the link to VanDerBrink Auctions, which is handling the transactions:

Judging by the photos in the article, most of these cars are probably scrap or are likely to cost a fortune to restore. And with the exception of the Cord and Lincoln, and maybe a couple of others, there were few listed worth the expense of frame-off restorations. This reminds me a bit of that auction a few months ago of all of those Chevrolets in Nebraska.

Vanderbrink auctions seems to specialize in barn find hoards/collections.

Fascinating auctions.

Scrap? So, no one should mind if any of these are used for hot rod projects, right? I know I wouldn't, except for the few cars showcased indoors.

The Cord looked to be restorable.
