This November 3-5, 2011, Auctions America by RM in partnership with RM Auctions will be lifting the gavel on one of the Chicago area's best known treasures -- The Lee Hartung Collection. Billed as the "Ultimate Barn Find Auction", the three-day sale will include over 2500 lots, and will put up for sale literally hundreds of America's rarest and most unique two- and four-wheeled vehicles.
Lee Hartung was a collector's collector. Based in Glenview, IL, Hartungs collection rested on 4 acres in the middle of the North Chicago suburb, and was amassed over the 60 years since he purchased the property in the 1940s. For those fortunate enough to get a glimpse of Lee's collection over the past decades -- they were among a select few to step into a time-warp that told a unique story of 20th century Chicago ---- from Lee's point of view.
