The RM Auctions Don Davis Collection sale will be staged April 27, 2013 in Fort Worth, Texas. The single-day auction will see a total of 64 automobiles offered without reserve.
Following a childhood spent enthralled with muscle cars, speed and automotive design, Don Davis got into the car business, eventually operating as many as 12 dealerships throughout Texas and Oklahoma. Don Davis started collecting cars in the late-1970s, yet the acquisition of significant cars didn’t start until the early early-1980s. The main focus has been American horsepower and European sports and GT cars, preferably high quality examples with low mileage and limited production numbers.
Davis said his collecting philosophy was simple, “to collect the best and spend what it takes to ensure we have the finest example of its kind.” Accordingly, many examples have received complete body-off, nut-and-bolt restorations, and all have been well-maintained by a professional staff.
Alain Squindo, Director Private Collections, RM Auctions said, “Don Davis truly has the ‘collector’s collection.’ He’s handpicked the most desirable cars from watershed moments of automotive history, representing the finest in European and American design, engineering and performance, be it a 289 Cobra, Ferrari Daytona or Mercedes-Benz 300 SL right up to modern collectibles such as the Porsche 959.”
