Muscle cars from a collector with an 'eye for the very best' sell in Georgia

A truly remarkable collection of classic cars will be auctioned by RM tomorrow (November 13) in Gainesville, Georgia, US.

The selection of automobiles was amassed over 25 years by collector Milton Robson who, in the words of RM, "has an eye for the very best in American cars."

Robson deliberately sought-out the rarest and most desirable iterations of each marque, model and era in which he was interested. Now collectors will be able to enjoy the fruits of his passion at Saturday's auction.

Early Fords to muscle cars of the late 1960s are among the models hunted-down by Robson. Highlights include his '69 GTO Judge Convertible (pictured above).

Not only is it a four-speed car with the desirable Ram Air IV motor, it is beautifully restored in triple-black and is one of only five cars like it extant.

Also starring in the auction is a one-off, factory built 1953 Supercharged Cadillac Eldorado and the Chrysler 300F Factory Four-Speed Convertible. The latter happens to be the only known example of its kind.

Other star lots in the sale include two very rare '69 Camaros: one, a superbly restored COPO ZL-1 Four-Speed Coupe and the other, an extraordinary survivor Yenko/SC.

The sale of Milton Robson's collection promises to be up to RM Auctions' usual high standards. Watch this space for news on results from the event.
