OK: Department to hold vehicle auction
The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation has 31 pick-up
trucks that will be up for public auction Nov. 3 at the agency’s
headquarters located at 1801 N. Lincoln in Oklahoma City.
“We’ve got a lot of great used trucks that will be up for auction,”
said Johnny Hill, property manager for the Wildlife Department.
“All the vehicles up for auction are four-wheel drive pickups, just
in time for hunting season.”
The auction vehicles may fit the needs of sportsman who need a new
hunting or fishing truck, someone looking to replace their daily
driver or even a parent searching for just the right first vehicle
for their teenage drivers.
“They could be just right for someone who spends a lot of time
outdoors, or even those who want a different vehicle to drive when
there is snow and ice on the ground,” Hill said, since all of the
vehicles are four-wheel drive.
Most of the trucks available at the auction are ½ and ¾-ton Fords
and Chevrolets, with one Dodge one-ton dump truck available as
well. Information about the vehicles, including make, model, VIN
and mileage, are available for viewing on the Wildlife Department’s
website at http://www.wildlifedepartment.com/other/vehiclesale.htm
“There’s also a designated time period before the auction where
buyers can come inspect the vehicles,” Hill said.
Vehicles will be sold “as is” to the highest bidder and can be
inspected from 10 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Nov. 3 at the Department
headquarters. High bidders will be required to pay the balance in
full at the time of sale, and titles will be furnished with cash
& certified cashier’s check only. Personal checks will be
accepted (out-of-state checks not accepted); however, titles will
be held for 14 days.
