Andrews Car Collection Up for Grabs

There’s an upcoming auction next weekend that looks interesting. RM Sotheby’s will be selling off the Paul & Chris Andrews car collection in Fort Worth, Texas on May 2. You can get an idea from the video (link HERE in case it won’t play for you) what a fantastic collection it is. Apparently it includes 78 vehicles, all going without reserve.

“The Andrews Collection is one of the most unique and comprehensive collections we've ever had the privilege of offering,” says Ian Kelleher, Specialist, RM Sotheby's. “A fantastic reflection of a father and son's shared passions, the sale has attracted tremendous early interest, which we expect will translate into spirited bidding come auction day.”

No, that’s not just hype. Among the collection are a 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB Cabriolet by Pininfarina, the 1935 Duesenberg Model SJ Town Car with body by Bohman & Schwartz, and a 1962 Shelby 289 Competition Cobra, all of which appear in the video.

The Andrews aren’t getting out of car collecting entirely, they just want to pare their collection down so they can enjoy driving the ones they have. Which makes me wonder. If these are the cars they’re getting rid of, what are they keeping?
