Auctioneers notes: These two classics, i.e. the Chevrolet Coupe and the Ford Thunderbird have been entered into our classic auction by the vendor who is a private collector.  He acquires his cars in the USA and only very, very good examples.  His collection stands at over 30 cars at the moment, mostly fifties and pre-war American vehicles and Jaguar XK’s and E-types.  Why is he selling ?  to make room for more cars he has purchased. Please ring to make an appointment to view these lovely entries.
