BLENHEIM, ON.- One of the world’s premier muscle car collections will cross the auction block in Georgia next month as RM Auctions presents The Milton Robson Collection, a single-vendor sale to be held in Gainesville, November 13.

The result of over 25 years of careful acquisition by lifelong ‘car guy’ Milton Robson, the Robson Collection features a remarkable series of low-production and ultra-high specification Detroit muscle cars, along with a series of iconic fifties and sixties classics, and a superb selection of Henry Ford’s original flathead V8s. A total of 55 vehicles from the collection, along with a range of memorabilia will be offered ‘without reserve’.

RM is honored to have been entrusted with the presentation of the Milton Robson Collection,” says Ian Kelleher, RM Auctions.

“Milt Robson is a passionate car guy with an incredible eye for quality. His collection is known across the country by like-minded collectors and enthusiasts as it represents one of the most diverse cross sections of the finest and most desirable American automobiles produced.”

The headline attraction for the auction is a trio of Pontiac GTO Judge Convertibles, including a Starlight Black ’69 Judge, one of the most rare and desirable Pontiacs in existence (Est. $750,000 - $1,000,000). It leads a charge of 12 Pontiacs included in the sale. Also on offer, an all-original 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Yenko/SC Sport Coupe, one of the most vaunted vehicles of the muscle era. (Est. $300,000 - $400,000).

Additional sale highlights include: a stunning, one-of-a-kind 1953 Cadillac Eldorado Supercharged Convertible (Est. $450,000 - $650,000); a 1960 Chrysler 300F Four-Speed Convertible, the only factory four-speed, 400 hp convertible in existence and one of the most desirable letter cars of all time (Est. $250,000 - $350,000); and, a top-of-the-line, beautifully-restored 1957 DeSoto Adventurer Convertible (Est. $250,000 - $350,000).

The Milton Robson Collection auction will be held November 13 in Gainesville, Georgia. For those interest in participating but unable to attend in person, absentee, telephone and Internet bidding options are available.
