A new exhibition has just opened at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum, with 25 classic, rare and interesting cars on display.

The collection forms the first part of the museum’s ‘Recollect’ series, with the curators dusting off its collection of cars and displaying them together for the first time.

Called ‘Auto Obsession’, the exhibition includes the 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V, used by the NSW Governor Sir Roden Cutler as his official car between 1966 and 1981.

A 1913 Sheffield Simplex believed to be one of just three remaining examples is also on display, along with a 1959 Goggomobil Dart.

Visitors will also be treated to 600 of the museum’s Matchbox car collection. Powerhouse says Australians purchased more of the tiny diecast models during the 1960s per-capita than any other country.

The Recollect: Cars, Auto Obsession exhibition runs until October 26 at the Powerhouse Museum near Darling Harbour in Sydney.

2014 Motorclassica To Host Collectible Car Auction

Preparations for Motorclassica 2014 are gearing up, with the event scheduled for October 24-26 at Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building.

Event organisers have confirmed the 2014 event will again play host to an auction of collectible classics, to be conducted by the Theodore Bruce group.

Last year’s event auction saw more than $2 million change hands, with $750,000 paid for a Lamborghini Miura and $675,000 for a Holden 48-125 prototype.

Bidding for this year’s auction will only be open to pre-registered buyers, with 30 cars to go under the hammer on the evening of Saturday October 25.

Headlining the auction at this stage will be a 1937 BMW 327 – estimated to fetch more than $180,000 – and a 1954 BMW 503 Cabriolet with an estimated value beyond $200,000.

The Germans will also be represented by Porsche, with a 1956 Speedster expected to sell for more than $250,000.

"Our Auction is an important part of what makes Motorclassica the most important event on the Australian collector car calendar," Motorclassica Event Director Paul Mathers says.

"Limiting the consignments to around 30 significant and desirable cars is a deliberate policy to ensure the Auction reflects the significance of the overall event and attracts global interest."

Interested bidders can register now at www.motorclassica.com.au (website opens in new window).
