famous Lee Hartung Collection

It's finally upon us: the sale of one of Chicago's great hidden treasures. As you can see from our three Videos of the Week, this really is a classic car time capsule...

The famous Lee Roy Hartung Collection of classic cars, motorcycles and automobilia goes under the hammer tomorrow (auctioning between November 3-5) in Glenview, Illinois, US.

"Hartung was the ultimate collector with an incredible passion for history and a remarkable eye for originality," said Rob Myers, Chairman & Founder of RM Auctions and Auctions America, the firms behind the sale.

Incredible highlights in the sale include an Edwards R26 Roadster classic car believed to be the original 1950 inaugural Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance winning example.
