Biggest private antique Ford collection FOR SALE....!

https://www.bonhams.com/press_release/25837/
Quote:
Bonhams is delighted to announce that it will be selling at auction the contents of the world-famous Den Hartogh Museum, The Netherlands, on 23 June 2018. It is believed to be the largest collection of Fords in the world, and demonstrates the true breadth and variety of the American marque. Examples range from Ford Models A, B and C to ice cream vans, ambulances and fire engines.
This collection consists of more than 200 prewar Ford and Lincoln automobiles and over 50 motorcycles.


Model T's... in a row.


A quadricycle! ... replica. The only non-original in the whole collection though.


Al Capone's delivery truck. Just for Chicago's finest, of course.

Odds and ends: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/C...gh_Ford_Museum

The museum still has its own website; Ford museum Hillegom - Collectie

Very cool.

There are a few Model T's in my little city. It's so neat to see (and hear) a 100 year-old car putting through town.

I get a kick out of the "how to operate a Model T" videos. EG:
