The largest selection of running vehicles ever auctioned by the state will occur Wednesday in Davis.

The California Department of General Services said that it will auction more than 350 cars, trucks, trailers, boats and other state property starting at 9 a.m Wednesday at 5950 Chiles Road. More than 640 vehicles have been sold in previous auctions, returning $1.4 million to state coffers.

The selection on Wednesday includes running and non-running vehicles. “Runners” may be driven off the lot. “Non-runners” do not meet requirements of the state vehicle code but that does not necessarily mean the vehicles do not operate, according to a DGS press release.

Non-runners must be towed off the lot. All vehicles are sold “as is.”

Prospective bidders can view the cars from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Wednesday. Among the items up for auction:

▪ 1999 Ford Ranger pickup with 96,000 miles

▪ 2001 Ford Taurus auto with 155,000 miles

▪ 2000 Dodge Neon auto with 116,000 miles

▪ 2001 Toyota Prius auto with 86,000 miles

▪ 2001 Ford Crown Victoria auto with 129,000 miles

▪ 2007 Ford Focus auto with 83,000 miles
