A white 1955 Chrysler 300 sport coupe (Est. $30,000-$50,000) highlights the Spring Auction. This two-door, five-passenger sport coupe boasts all original parts and an eight-cylinder 300-horsepower Hemi engine with dual carburetors. The car was originally produced in a run of 1,725 and this specimen represents one of the 299 remaining today. Restored by R. Cail of Wilmington, MA., the car is in running condition with 113,000 miles.

Gear-heads will also swoon for a red 1957 Thunderbird convertible (Est. $20,000-$30,000). Complete with a white hardtop with porthole windows, automatic transmission and an eight-cylinder engine, this paradigm of automotive design is sure to draw attention from admirers and aficionados alike.

Fine art offerings include a signed monochromatic watercolor, The Seiners Monhegan, by James E. Fitzgerald (Est. $7,000-$9,000). Fitzgerald, a student of the Massachusetts School of Art and the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, is known for his modern coastal views.

Headlining the fine art category is a 19th Century painting by English artist James E. Buttersworth, Ships at Sea (Est. $30,000-$50,000). Collectors covet Buttersworth’s meticulous and remarkably accurate depictions of warships and historic vessels and he is considered among the foremost maritime artists of the 19th Century. His pieces are also valued as historic references as the completion of his last oil painting occurred just before the popularization of photographic imagery.

“It’s a pleasure to be able to offer such rare and beautiful classic automobiles,” comments Frank Kaminski, owner of Kaminski Auctions. “We are always looking for items to feature in upcoming auctions and can take consignments in any volume, from a single piece to an entire estate.”
