After 44 years of service at Greenville Tool & Die, I have decided to retire. Due to our plans to set up our foundry in the buildings here at our home, we find it necessary to empty the buildings of our 50 year collection; therefore we have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction. We would like to invite you to our Thursday morning auction and thank you in advance for your consideration and support.

Very best regards, Dan & Cathy Updike

NOTE: Dan was a collector of many items with a special interest in the Ford Model T truck and the IHC 8-16 tractor. There is a large quantity of both parts and engines for both of these items.  Dan also had an interest in motorcycles with the 1959 Harley Davidson Servi-Car Municipal three wheel motorcycle the star of the show! Dan purchased this Harley in 1971 and it starts and drives very nice, a real collectors dream. Many other motorcycles and pedal cars and tractors along with the rare Indiana Motor Truck will make this an interesting Thursday morning Auction to attend. Make plans to be just East of Greenville, Michigan on Backus Rd. on Thursday October 26th @ 10:00AM for the start of this “guy” auction!!

TERMS: Cash or good check day of auction. Master Card or VISA with 5% service fee. We subscribe to Pay-Tec, (A NATIONAL CHECK COLLECTION COMPANY)

INSPECTION: Wednesday, October 25th 4:00PM-6:00PM

For your convenience we will have port-a-jons, lunch wagon and wash-up station.
