MX50108-101 Bertone AM Jet 2+2 Concept grey metallic 2013

Expected September.

This concept car was based upon an Aston Martin Rapide and may have gone into small scale production had Bertone not gone into liquidation just as it was being shown.

MX50303-061 Chrysler Imperial C15 Town Car Walter P. Chrysler black 1937

Expected October

This 1937 Chrysler Imperial C-15 seven-passenger limousine was fitted with town car coachwork by LeBaron. It is absolutely one of a kind and believed to be the first automobile ever built with spring-loaded power windows and door locks. Ordered by Chrysler himself some say it was used by his wife, others that it was his personal car.

MX51206-031 Lincoln Model K Sport Sedan Derham black 1937

Expected October

This Derham sedan shows how streamlining developed in the 1930’s.  In 1937, the Derham Coach Company risked building one car to attract buyers but the depression meant that it remained unsold until 1938 when Mr. Thomas Morris of New York City purchased this unique model.
