We have also added a page for a recent consignment from one of Cliff's long time friends. It is mostly International pickups and trucks but there is also a 1964 Cadillac coupe and a nice Ford 6600 tractor with a loader.

Great auction!!!150 bidders from 5 states. The stove brought $2600, the 820 John Deere $2000, the trip hammer 1250, the model t coupe $1900, 47 GMC $1400, the weather cleared up and warmed up, only a few drops of rain & about 45 degrees by 12:30.
Thanks to everybody who came!!!
Update may 9 6 AM. Weather at the Cooper location is 40 with no rain although we will expect some rain and possibly some snow during the day.
The auction is ON for today, May 9.
Dress for the weather. We have heat in the kitchen and the concessions will be open.
Call 406 949 3448 if you need to talk to stan.
Bring a jacket, it will be cool and windy. We lost a day of set up time today outside but got the shops cleaned out. There are always a few finds!! Today we found a Litening cream separator can in near mint condition behind a box of "Stuff" in the shop. We also uncovered an old flat belt drive post drill. There is also one on the wall of the shop. We also dug the line shaft for the trip hammer out of the brush.
Heads up that we found out that what we thought was petrified wood is probably a unique eastern Montana rock. Still pretty.
The Litening can is Litening cream separator oil.
We will have a huge loader at the auction from 2 pm to 5pm that can load anything you buy!!!!. Thanks to Griffith excavating of Baker for jumping in at the last minute to bring their loader out. They will take care of you at the cooper location but probably wont be at the second location.
I finally figured out how to upload the Cooper video to youtube. This just shows some of the older machinery for the most part but you can watch it at.
NOTE THAT IF YOU WATCH THE VIDEO IT SAYS THE AUCTION IS ON THE 16TH. IT WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR THE 16TH BUT WE CHANGED THE DATE TO AVOID CONFLICT WITH THE BUCKING HORSE SALE IN MILES CITY.
Nice addition to this auction.
1996 Chevy Pickup.
Part of the estate, not a consignment.
WE ARE WORKING ON GETTING A BIGGER LOADER AT THE AUCTION TO LOAD SOME OF THE HEAVIER ITEMS. I BELIEVE IT WILL BE THERE. CHECK BACK HERE IN A DAY OR TWO TO KNOW FOR SURE.

THANKS TO THE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED THE REDENSEK AUCTION IN GREAT FALLS in October of 2009.
SELLING prices are posted on the
Redensek Auction car list as well as with many of the pictures from
that auction. In order to keep the pages at reasonable size so they
will load fairly quickly, we have deleted many of the pictures from
past auctions that were on the site but the main pictures of the cars
will remain up for a while.
