Christie's Auction of the Sharpe Family Collection

Dear Readers,

On Jeff's suggestion I just wanted to let you know that Christie's will offer a 1911 Stanley Steamer for sale by auction on 30th June 2005, as part of our sale of the Sharpe Family Collection.

The car is a 1911 Model 63 Four Seater tourer, Car No. 6066, and has the distinctive registration of X2135. It carries an estimate of 30,000-50,000.

I would be pleased to provide any additional information required.

Kind regards




Rupert Banner
Christie's

The Pathe News website www.pathenews.com has a newsreel which shows this car, amongst others, at a rally in Bristol about 1950.
