Bonhams are delighted to offer the Bacon Collection at our forthcoming auction at Oxford on 2nd March. The collection has four McLaughlin Buicks, including one of only two manufactured for use by HRH Prince of Wales' 1928 & 29 Ceremonial Tours of Canada. Manufactured under license by McLaughlin, they utilized Buick components and built them to European standards. The obvious plus side being right hand drive configuration with American power, they took the car world by storm and proved highly popular. All the cars have been superbly restored and offer an excellent opportunity to purchase a quality vintage car suitable for long distance touring.
