The entire contents of the eccentric Exmoor Classic Car Museum will go under the hammer at the Bonhams Beaulieu Sale in Hampshire, UK, on September 8.
The museum, in Somerset, UK, has been the retirement project of car collector Stephen Johns.
Johns, an entrepreneur who ran a pajama-manufacturing concern in Yorkshire for 45 years, and acquired dozens of motorcars, motorcycles and assorted automobilia, all charmingly jumbled in an old warehouse alongside life-size soldier mannequins and such.
Highlights of the collection, all quite reasonably estimated, include a 1972 Ferrari 246GTS “Dino” Spyder, a 1927 Bugatti Type 40 Tourer and a 1923 Rolls-Royce 20hp “Doctor’s Coupe” by Mitchells of Nottingham.
We call dibs on the Beefeater…
