A mega lot of 20 classic vehicles and 30 pieces of memorabilia from the estate of the late Internationally-known collector and historian Ian Cummins is to be sold off by Australian auction house Shannons, on November 27.
Amongst the special vehicles expected to attract world-wide interest are two of Cummins’ race car Jaguar recreations, his 1955-style Jaguar D Type by ‘Classic Autocraft, incorporating some Jaguar competition parts and his 1953-style C-Type.
The auction will also represent a rare opportunity to bid on a sequential collection of 1965, ’66. ’67 and ’68 Shelby Mustangs and his late-series 1987 Ferrari Testarossa.
Cummins, who was a founder member of the Historic Sports and Racing Car Association of New South Wales (HSRCA) and had been a life member and Patron of the Jaguar Drivers Club of Australia for many years, died in November 2016 aged 77, leaving behind a treasure trove of important sports racing cars and parts, particularly Jaguar.
