As you read this, the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) is kicking off the 2010 running of its famed Eastern Fall Meet, perhaps better known simply as “Hershey” thanks to its traditional site on the grounds of Hershey Park in the Pennsylvania town known for its chocolate. As part of the adjunct happenings associated with the event, RM Auctions is making final preparations for its Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey event. This is the fourth year that RM has held the sale, which takes place at the Hershey Lodge, and the roster of available lots includes a number of impressive vehicles.
This year’s sale will feature the collections of two long-time enthusiasts, both representing years of dedication to a passion for vintage American cars. The Gerald Sichel Collection includes a broad selection of early brass cars and American classics; more than 20 of the lots are vehicles that predate 1910, including a 1903 Cadillac Model A Roadster, a 1904 Pierce Stanhope and a 1909 Stanley Steamer Model E2. The Clyde Ensor Sr. Collection represents more than 50 years worth of hunting and gathering, and includes a variety of Model T Fords and a pair of 1931 Lincolns, among others.
Other individual sale highlights include a 1929 Duesenberg Model J Convertible Coupe (chassis no. 2213) that’s said to have continuous history from new; it’s estimated to bring between $600,000-$800,000 when it crosses the block. Also on offer is a 1911 Jackson 50HP 7-Passenger Touring, which is estimated to yield between $300,000-$400,000.
The sale begins today and continues through tomorrow. For more information, go to www.rmauctions.com.
