Bonhams is excited to offer a new auction honoring and promoting the preservation of the automobile which will take place on October 8, 2012 at the world famous Simeone Foundation in Philadelphia.
Already consigned to the auction are a number of early cars formerly forming part of the collection of a local Pennsylvania collector, headlined by a 1915 Packard Model 3-38 Gentleman's Roadster which comes to market for the first time in 84 years and remains in highly original and authentic order. Alongside this are other automobiles in similarly preserved and original order, including a 1903 Knox, 1904 Buckmobile, 1912 Metz and 1936 Lincoln Model K Sedan by Brunn.
