Stunning collection of classic cars including a 16 cylinder Cadillac set to be auctioned for £3.6m
A VINTAGE car collection including a 16-cylinder Cadillac is set to be auctioned for £3.6million.
A stunning collection of pre-war ‘dream’ cars will fetch millions next month when they come under the hammer.
Auction house for classic cars RM Sotheby’s have released their picks for the 2023 Amelia Island Sale.
And it boasts prestigious vintage models, including a “disappearing top” Duesenberg, a 16-cylinder Cadillac and three rare Packards built by a Coach.
The collection of ten consists largely of pre-war classics, with Murphy’s award-winning 1931 Duesenberg Model J ‘Disappearing Top’ Convertible Coupe leading the private collection, which is valued at up to £3.6million.
Next up is LeBaron’s 1934 Packard Twelve Sport Coupe – one of four built on a shortened 136-inch wheelbase with twelve-cylinder power – which is set to sell for up to £2.4million.
Next is Fleetwood’s 1930 Cadillac V-16 Roadster, which was sold three years after its purchase during the Great Depression.
It has been carefully preserved by its second owner.
And the car was in a private collection for over 80 years before it was sold for a third time in 2014 and is expected to fetch up to £1.2million.
Another highlight of the auction is Waterhouse’s 1930 Packard 745 Deluxe Eight Convertible Victoria – one of just four examples of this model, set to sell for £369,000.
Other pre-war offerings from the collection include a 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540 K Cabriolet B from Sindelfingen, a 1929 Bentley Tourer from Cadogan and a 1930 Packard 745 Deluxe Eight Convertible Victoria from Proux.
Three post-war offerings are also included – a 1953 Mercedes-Benz 300 S Roadster, a 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I Drophead Coupé by James Young and a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2 Series I by Pininfarina.
The auction, which will be the final sale on Amelia Island, is scheduled for March 4th.
