Back in the early 70s a man named Jack moved to Austin, TX, and he brought seven pre-war cars along with him.
Jack, who’s withheld his last name to preserve his privacy, intended to fix them up one day but he suffered the same plight many gear heads face today– he couldn’t find enough cash to support his dream.
Fast-forward 40-years and now Jack has finally decided to part with five cars in his collection.
The cars are set to headline the Motostalgia Auctions’ sale at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on June 12, but before they go we thought we’d detail the five cars that’ll head to the block:
1932 Cadillac 370B V-12 Victoria Convertible
Perhaps the rarest of the five, this particular car was the first of four V12 Victoria Convertibles to roll off the line in 1932, and it was the only one to be fitted with a V12. Not a V16.
Estimated price: $285,000-$350,000.
1933 Cadillac Model 370C V-12 Town Coupe
Came out of the factory wearing the trunk of a 1932 model. Just one of 952 cars built. Designed by the legendary Harley Earl.
Estimated price: $55,000-$75,000.
1938 Cadillac Series 90 V-16 Fleetwood Limousine
A rare limousine due to the fact it seats only 5 passengers, whereas most Fleetwood limos of the time featured seating for either 7 or 9.
Estimated price: $45,000 – $65,000.
1923 Milburn Electric Model 27L
GM bought out the Milburn factory in 1924 in order to wipe out one of its competitors. Jack’s car is the last model Milburn built before GM shut the doors.
Estimated price: $90,000 -$125,000.
1908 REO Model G Boattail Roadster/Sedan
Ransom E. Olds founded REO in 1905, a year after he left Oldsmobile. This particular model can be switched from a five person convertible into a two-person boat-tail by simply removing the rear seats.
Estimated price: $75,000 – $95,000.
