Due to the death of William “Bill” Updike a Public Auction will be held, live on-site, to sell autos, motor home, tractors, equipment, collectibles and antiques.

NOTE: The late Mr. Updike was a lifelong area resident working at Greenville Tool & Die for over 40 years. He enjoyed antique & unusual cars and was an active member of both the Grand Rapids Antique Auto Club and the Flat River Antique Auto Club. He took the Woodland Antique Auto tours many times. He loved the odd and unusual and this shows in the items found in the packed 40’X80’ pole barn.  Bill also did foundry work out of his garage in Greenville. From the American Austin to the Triumphs to the over 40 pedal cars & the Sea Scooter, you will find items that rarely come up at a local Public Auction. Everything must be sold, everything will be sold. The family invites you out to the shaded yard to participate in this interesting Live Public Auction. Make plans to be just west of Belding at 12NOON for the start of this unusual auction offering.

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

We’ll be giving away an “American Farm Collectibles” book at the start of the Auction at 12 NOON.
