The RM Auctions Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum sale will be staged February 15-16, 2013 in Madison, Georgia. The two-day sale will see the entire collection offered without reserve, including approximately 200 microcars, and an assortment of more than 300 lots of collectibles.
The “world’s largest collection of the world’s smallest cars”, the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum is highlighted by a roster of microcar examples from the late-1940s through the early-1960s. Some of the more amazing little cars that will be crossing the auction block include the only Messerschmitt KR 200 “Sport” known to exist, an Australian Lightburn Zeta Sports, and a Hot Wheels-inspired BMW Isetta that has been modified with a 700 horsepower Chevrolet crate motor. Meanwhile, the wide array of collectibles offered consists of period neon signage, rare kiddie rides, literature, and 1950s vending machines and candy dispensers.
Rob Myers, Chairman and Founder of RM Auctions, said, “As a microcar collection, the Bruce Weiner Museum is unequivocally the finest of its kind worldwide. With many items having been closely guarded in private ownership, and the vast majority coming to public auction for the first time, the sale is truly unprecedented.”
The Bruce Weiner Collection auction will be held in situ at the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum, February 15–16, 2013 in Madison, Georgia. For more information, visit www.handlewithfun.com or call +1 519 352 4575.
