First 'true American pick-up truck' rolls into Atlantic City classic cars sale

Atlantic City is known for its casinos, but investing in a classic car there this weekend could be much less of a gamble, and more lucrative.

The Atlantic City Classic Car Show and Auction is sure to fascinate petrol heads, collectors and investors alike when it opens its doors on February 18.

The show takes place at the Atlantic City Convention Center and is widely regarded to be the east coast's largest classic car show and auction.

Around 1,000 classic collectible cars will be available for sale over the three day event and more than 60,000 collectors, investors and car fans are expected to attend.

Cars range in date from a 1912 Krit Model A to vehicles built in the last few years, including a 2010 Dodge Challenger.

One of the more unusual items is a 1920 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost that has featured in the Boardwalk Empire show, which is currently airing on US television.

There is also a 1923 Ford Model T said to be the first "true American pick up truck". The vehicle is in excellent condition both inside and out and has been gracing a Ford showroom floor for the past 35 years. This solid oak bodied vehicle is a rarity and could garner plenty of interest.

Those whose passion lies in the cars of the 1950s will be thrilled to find a huge selection awaiting them. One of the standout vehicles is a 1955 Imperial Newport, one of only 3,418 ever made. Designed by Virgil Exner, this two door coupe is sure to attract some exciting bidding.

The weekend is a huge celebration of American motor cars but there is also something for fans of historical and entertainment memorabilia as a number of celebrity items will also be offered each day courtesy of Piece of the Past. These will include a Bruce Springsteen signed Telecaster guitar by Fender, signed Johnny Cash lyrics and a John Wayne signed image.
