Bonhams, one of the top classic car auction houses in the world, announced that it will be presenting an auction to honor and encourage the preservation of the automobile. The auction will be held on the 8th of October, 2012 at the Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia.

The main purpose of the auction will be to provide classic car collectors with the opportunity to acquire original automobiles that are exceptionally fine and fully documented. These automobiles have either been recently unearthed or sympathetically restored. Some of the highlights of the auction include a 1915 Packard Model 3-38 Six Gentleman’s Roadster, 1929 Pierce-Arrow Model 125 Dual Cowl Phaeton, 1931 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Two-Door Faux Cabriolet, and a 1965 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 75 Limousine. Select automotive spares, accessories, and ephemera will also be offered to provide a useful resource for proper restoration of classic cars. The launch of a new book entitled The Stewardship of Historically Important Automobiles will also take place during the auction.

The automobiles that will be offered at the auction will be on display in the museum on the 6th and 7th of October. If you wish to attend the auction, you have to purchase a catalog at the price of $30.00. The catalog admits two people to the auction and the museum.
