A Late farmer’s massive car collection going to Auction. There’s a vehicle crop of over 100 classic cars coming up for auction in Minnesota this Saturday.
The vehicles were owned by a James Graham, a farmer, who died last December at 88.
Graham was a bachelor his entire life who spent his time collecting mostly old American cars, trucks and tractors.
At one point he supposedly had over 500 vehicles scattered about his farm and stored in sheds, although it was dwindled down a bit in recent years.
The sale is being handled by VanDerBrink Auctions and started on Friday with farm equipment, but on Saturday will be focused on the cars and trucks.
The collection is from the 1920s to 1970s era, but most of the collection is from the 1950s and 1960s and heavy on the drop-tops.
The collection includes a few valuable ones, like a 1962 Ford Thunderbird Convertible, a 1957 Chevy Cameo pickup, and 1967 Imperial Convertible, but many of the cars are just rust bucket project vehicles more suitable for supplying parts than transportation.
The auction is taking place in Beardsley, Minn., and all of the vehicles are being offered without reserve. It will be very interesting what the farmer’s massive car collection brings when all said is done. Here’s a chance for collectors to get their hands on some great classic vehicles!Auto News, Blog
