TULSA, Okla. (August 25, 2011) — Leake Auction Company just announced the consignment of three vehicles that were featured in two different blockbuster movies. The cars will be sold during their annual Dallas car auction, November 18-20.

All three cars will sell at “No Reserve”.
The 1930 Ford Hot Rod utilizes parts from various early model Ford products. In addition to owning a piece of movie history, the high bidder will receive an exclusive film crew only sweatshirt, movie poster and DVD.
