Rare models from the coveted Andews Collection of cars, one of America’s greatest private automotive treasures, are about to go under the hammer to the highest bidder. The sale catalogue lists 75 for sale, including rare 1930s American cars like a 1935 Duesenberg to highly valuable Ferraris and a 1963 Shelby Cobra, one of three factory race cars. Auction house RM Auctions estimates most of the cars will fetch around $NZ1 million, with several notable classics perhaps going for upwards of $NZ2m. The collection has been built up over the years by wealthy Texas entrepreneur Paul Andrews and his son Chris. They have more than 100 cars but now want to cull the collection. “We want to get down to a smaller number of cars – perhaps 15 to 20 – that we very much enjoy driving and that we can use on events with the family,” Chris told RM Auctions in Fort Worth, Texas. Added his father Paul: “When you get down to it, the most fun you can have in a car is using it how it’s meant to be used…on the road.” Here are a handful of the classics up for sale: 1963 Shelby 289 Competition Cobra, CSX 2011(top), the first Cobra racing car sold to the public and one of three factory competition examples. Its 4.7-litre V8 engine helped it dominate the US sports car racing scene in the early 1960, losing only one race in three years. 1935 Duesenberg Model SJ Town car by Bohman and Schwartz front Above: 1935 Duesenberg Model SJ Town Car, engine no. J-553, one of the most outrageous and ornate of all Duesenbergs, penned with actress Mae West in mind though ultimately delivered new to candy-making heiress and horse racing legend, Ethel V Mars. It runs a supercharged straight-eight engine and was one of the fastest cars of the time, averaging over 218km/h on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. This model was bought in 2007 for around $US4.4 million ($NZ5.8m). 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB convertible Above: 1962 Ferrari 400 Superamerica SWB Cabriolet, chassis no. 3309 SA, the last of seven examples bodied by Pininfarina and displayed as a factory show car at the Geneva and New York motor shows in 1962. It ran a small-block 4.0-litre V12 generating around 255kW. An example previously sold in 2010 for upwards of $US3million ($NZ4m). 1930 Cadillac V16 convertible sedan Above: 1930 Cadillac V16 convertible sedan. This is one of the first examples of Cadillac’s generic cialis

amazing V16 convertible sedans. The name isn’t exaggerating: this enormous 1930 car had a 16-cylinder engine and was the costliest Cadillac ever built at the time. It’s predicted to sell for well over $NZ2m. Also in the catalogue:
