AN amazing and vast collection of model cars is due to go under the hammer at the Charterhouse auction in Sherborne, Dorset, on October 20-21.

The models all come from a single owner and are being offered for sale with no reserve.

Matthew Whitney, from the auctioneers, says: “The client has been collecting for many years. Although there are a wide variety of models, a large number of them are in the popular 1:18 scale enjoyed by collectors and enthusiasts. There must be several thousand models as we filled three vans bringing them into the saleroom!”

The collection includes a large number of Ford, Jaguar, Vauxhall, Rolls Royce and other European models, as well as a huge selection of Chevrolet, Cadillac, Lincoln, Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Dodge, Chrysler and other American manufacturers.

Nearly all the 1:18 scale models are presented in their original boxes and with lots valued from just £20, the entire collection is estimated to sell for £20,000.
