Auburn museum selling dozens of military vehicles

Friday, November 9, 2012 - 11:33 am

AUBURN — More than 80 old military vehicles are being put up for sale by a military museum in northeastern Indiana that had faced foreclosure over unpaid loans.

The National Military History Center in Auburn plans to sell the vehicles and more than 100 pieces of war memorabilia during the Dec. 8 auction. The Star of Auburn reports the vehicles being sold include many used by U.S., German, French and British forces during World War II.

Auctions America president Donnie Gould says the vehicles represent a small portion of the museum's collection.

The sale of the items is part of a deal to keep the military museum open that included the auction in September of a neighboring unused auto museum toward paying off $2.9 million in debts.
