Gosford Museum Brings American Cars Home

International interest in this weekend’s Gosford Classic Car Museum Auction has prompted the owner to bring home 7 high value cars situated in the U.S. to Australian soil.

With the massive amount of interest pouring in from Australian bidders, owner of the iconic Gosford Classic Car Museum has decided to bring home 7 of his prized possessions from the United States.

“It’s a very exciting moment for Australian bidders with further opportunity to own one of these dream classic cars,” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer of Lloyds Auctions.

“Not only is this an important indication that the classic car market is extremely strong here in Australia but it means we are also seeing a shift in the popularity rising in American and especially European classics,” he continued.

“I’m very excited to know that the owner has brought these very special cars from overseas back to Australia, what an opportunity for car enthusiasts to see some extremely rare cars and have the chance to bid and potentially own one of these magnificent vehicles,” said Formula 1 World Champion Mr. Alan Jones.

“Some feature cars include extremely rare Ford Mustangs, Ferrari’s and even a Rolls Royce,” Mr. Jones continued.

The newly added cars include a 1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350H “Rent-A-Racer”, 1965 Ford GT40 RCR MK1 Tribute, 1962 Ferrari 250 GTE, 1959 Ferrari 250TR tribute, 1924 Rolls Royce Springfield Ghost, 1950 Alvis TB14 Roadster and a 1954 Swallow Doretti.

The highly anticipated auction event is now only 3 days away with tickets running-out and thousands already sold.

“There will be thousands of people showing up this weekend so we encourage everyone to jump online to get their free tickets with opportunity for upgrades for those who want the full experience,” said Mr. Hames.

The collection of over 200 cars, bikes & memorabilia located in a converted Bunning’s warehouse is described by many as a flawless collection. With the museum doors now closed, this auction represents the last chance for many car enthusiasts to see or own a part of this magnificent display.

With such a wide range of vehicles including Luxury European, Eastern European, Australian, American and even classic motorcycles, Lloyds Auctions have been flooded with enquiries and inspections since the auction was published over a month ago.

There will be an online Gosford Memorabilia Auction on the Saturday which will consist of over 100 rare and unique lots that have been on display in the museum alongside the immaculate vehicle collection. This memorabilia auction will be the preview to the main auction event of the vehicles and motorcycles going to auction on the Sunday.

Doors open to the Gosford Classic Car Museum at 8am on Saturday for inspections and a memorabilia auction, and 8am Sunday for the live and online Classic Car Auction. For your chance to be a part of this historic event, head to www.lloydsauctions.com.au for more information or to secure tickets.
