Pickles to Auction Rare Collection of Vintage Vehicles In October

Pickles Auctions is holding a special Vintage Vehicle, Stationary Engine and Veteran Machinery Auction at the South Coast Restoration Society, Pimpana, Queensland on October 27, 2007. The auction will feature many rare items from the collection of renowned Vintage Vehicle collector, Reg Schuster, plus a number of individual offerings from ten other private collectors.

Bruce Connors, Pickles Auctions Industrial Division Director, says the October auction, the first major vintage automobile auction held by Pickles for some time, will offer a unique collection of vintage vehicles.

Vintage collector Reg Schuster has been in the business of collecting and restoring vintage cars for the last 50 years. This auction will feature a number of Reg’s rare vehicles including Standard; Maxwell, Karrier, Stearns Knight and CarNation.

Also a highlight for vintage machinery enthusiasts will undoubtedly be the 1930 Dennis fire engine that comes complete with all hoses, pumps, ladders, and even a pair of brass helmets.

The vehicles on offer from other vendors include:

A rare, English built 1925 Hornsby – one of only two in Australia, among three worldwide.
A pair of unrestored 1926 Austins
1928 & 1930 Essex sedans
1931 Riley 9 Sports
1929 and 1939 Hudson Super Six
Stationary engines of all ages and stages of restoration

“A vintage collection this diverse is unlikely to be on offer again anytime soon, so if you have a passion for vintage vehicles and machinery, we’d thoroughly recommend you further investigate this auction,” said Bruce.
Car enthusiasts will also be able to participate in the vintage vehicle, stationary engine and veteran machinery auction in real-time over the internet through Pickles Live online auctions. For more information on how to register for this auction visit www.pickles.com.au
