Cmon, tease us with some pictures.

I can do one.. but after that it will be on a request basis.   Although if you were on my newsletter you would see cars that are never advertised but just offered to my readers.  The phaeton sold last week.

I like Auburns and most prewar cars to some degree.  How does one get your newsletter? 

Hi Tim.  I represent a wide range of cars - from Steam to Sportscars so sometimes you might see an Auburn Boattail Speedster, maybe next to the 1984 March Porsche "Kreepy Krauly."    I send it out about once or twice a month.  One thing I can guarantee is that if you love cars you will love the newsletter.  In the past few weeks I featured and sold an Arnolt Bristol, a Bugatti T40, a Mustang, you never quite know what will pop up.

Out of respect to forum rules if you are representing these cars you should post prices and pictures.

Respectfully, Jeff P.

Thank you Jeff.  I have been a part of the forum for almost two decades. I am sure the readers do not feel offended that I put a list up.  If they do, well then we should take it down.  What ever the forum wants Kelly does!

Kelly, It’s fine. The fly by night and scammers are where the problems come from. I rarely post the price of my cars for sale that I list here.

1937 Buick Special Sport Coupé

Interested but it depends on where and for how much.

This is from a very good client of mine:


She came to my collection in 2020 from the US. I use here normally even for long distance rallies.

Asking price is €40,000.  $42,000.00 US  


The car is located at my collection, so Hradec Kralove, Czech republic.

The car is EU registered (CZE registration).  

More pictures available by email: duesdealer@gamil.com

Just a gut feeling, but I think cars like this Buick are probably seen as being more desirable : and more likely to bring a premium price, in Europe than back in North America. It's a nice example. But only a Special. Quite a few survivors. I may be mistaken , but that looks more to me like a Century price than a Special.

On the other hand an Arnot Bristol probably has a bigger following in the U.S. than Europe or the U.K.

But I expect you already know all of this.

This is a car set up for rallying it has done the 1000 miles of Czechoslovakia  and the Competition of Reliability by Czechoslovakia (1500 miles around Czech and Slovak Republic). These are traditional long distance rallies (tradition since 1933 and 1937 respectively). And also some shorter local rallies.  

So not a Buick to be tucked into a car collection in the states for sure.
