PARIS.- A private collection of Morgans, dating from 1935 to 1967, will be sold at Bonhams’ motor car and motorcycle sale in Paris on Thursday 2 February 2012. Assembled over the last 16 years by motor enthusiast, Frolian Gisbert, the collection features seven examples of the marque, including a race prepared model and a rare Drophead Coupé.

Mr Gisbert’s love affair with Morgans began in 1995 having been invited by friends to a gathering of Morgan aficionados. There, he decided to buy what was to be the first of many Morgans, a white Morgan 4/4, which will remain in his collection. Since then, he has acquired several more, including the seven on offer here. The Gisbert family have become well-known in Morgan circles, regularly visiting the Morgan works at Malvern and through participating in numerous events.

Having decided to cut down on his collection, the cars on offer at the Bonhams Sale include the 1935 Morgan Series F Special (estimate: €15,000 – 20,000); one of just 58 built pre-war, the 1939 Morgan 4-4 Drophead Coupé (estimate: €25,000 - 35,000); the 1947 Morgan 4-4 Roadster (estimate: €35,000 - 45,000); the 1952 Morgan Plus 4 Drophead Coupé (estimate: €28,000 - 36,000); the 1958 Morgan Plus 4 Roadster (estimate: €40,000 - 55,000); the 1962 Morgan Plus 4 Competition Roadster (estimate: €50,000 - 70,000); and the 1967 Morgan Plus 4 Roadster (estimate: €28,000 - 36,000).

Over 100 cars and 35 motorcycles will be sold in total during the ‘drive through’ auction at the fashionable Parisian venue, La Halle Freyssinet.

Other sale highlights include a 1961 Aston Martin DB4GT Coupé, which has attracted a pre-sale estimate of €1,100,000 – 1,400,000; our catalogue cover lot, the 1926 Amilcar C6/CO Voiturette (estimate €460,000 – 540,000); and the 1935 Delage D8 105 S Streamlined Coupé (estimate €280,000 – 360,000), which is extremely rare as the sole survivor of its type.

The sale is once again being kindly supported by EFG International, the global private banking group.
