Auburn, Indiana’s Worldwide Auctioneers returns to Texas this week to host the 15th annual Houston Classic auction on Saturday, April 23 at the La Toretta Lake Resort & Spa. The auction, held in association with the Concours d’Elegance of Texas, promises to be a thrilling opportunity for collectors and fans of the greatest classic automobiles in existence today. Of the lot list numbering approximately 110 collector cars, nearly half – 47 of them – will be offered and sold at No Reserve!
Here is a link to the online color catalogue with details and photos:
Among the No Reserve cars are nine from a single collection including a stunning, concours-quality 1938 Mercedes-Benz 540K Cabriolet B. One of just 419 540K chassis built in all. Just 4 owners from new! Unlike so many others, this example carries a cloud-free history, having been delivered new to Great Britain. Stunning throughout and highly roadworthy, it boasts legendary supercharged 8-cylinder power and excellent documentation. One of the most sophisticated vehicles ever conceived, regardless of the era, it marks a fantastic opportunity for smart collectors. Here is a video of the mighty Mercedes in action, doing what it should on a nice open road with Worldwide’s Rod Egan at the wheel:
