Milton Robson’s collection of ’30s-’70s iconic American automobiles and automobilia is drop-dead impressive, and it’s being offered up to bidders by RM Auctions on November 13.
But above all the rare ’50s and ’60s performance cars in the man’s stable, we keep lingering over this unfinished 1933 Ford three-window coupe that was set up as the centerpiece of an old timey restoration shop display on Robson’s sprawling 435-acre Georgia ranch. (The ranch, too, by the way, is also for sale for $22 million.)
The Model B 40 is apparently complete and includes the fenders, grille, original mohair interior, rumble seat, etc. – much of which is currently being used to decorate the walls of the coupe’s stall. Robson was having the car restored by Ernest Allen, but following Allen’s death, the car was left as you see it here.
RM’s pre-auction estimate is $65,000 – $90,000, so you don’t have to worry about any of us trying to outbid you or anything.
