Company press release.

Vehicles From The Ruger Automobile Collection At RM's St. John's Sale  RM Auctions, the official auction house of the Concours d'Elegance of America, returns to the Inn at St. John's in Plymouth, July 28 for its well-established Michigan sale. A featured attraction of the Concours weekend and a longstanding summer tradition for collectors, the annual auction – formerly known as the Meadow Brook sale – boasts a reputation for including outstanding American and European classics.

Highlighting this year's sale is a superb group of 12 motor cars from the distinguished Ruger Automobile Collection. The fruit of more than five decades of thoughtful acquisition by businessman and engineer William (Bill) Ruger Junior, the automobiles of the Ruger Collection present an outstanding array of American and European classics and span the gamut of automotive eras, including steam, electric and gas powered models.

Collection highlights slated for the St. John's auction podium include a high-point, coachbuilt 1932 Lincoln KB Coupe by Judkins, chassis KB473, presented in an elegant two-tone Jade Mist and Birmingham Green and described by Mr. Ruger as one of the best running K-series cars he has ever owned; a well-known 1907 Locomobile Model E Roadster, chassis 1322, with exceptional provenance including Henry Austin Clark Jr. and Richard C. Paine Jr.; and an unmatched 1911 Stanley 10 HP Model 63 Touring Car, chassis 6076, restored by the renowned Paul Russell & Co. Other featured entries on offer from the Collection include an extraordinarily original 1918 Detroit Electric Model 75B Brougham, chassis 11667, with known history since WWII; and a pair of coachbuilt Phantom Rolls-Royces, including a 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Brewster Sport Saloon, chassis 295AJS and a 1929 Rolls-Royce Springfield Phantom I Tilbury Saloon, chassis S123RP.

'I've known Bill for many years, and must say that he is one of the most dedicated car enthusiasts I've ever met – he loves to work on his cars, isn't afraid to get his hands dirty, and really gets a kick out of trying various methods to improve the cars he loves – usually with great success,' says Mike Fairbairn, Co-Founder RM Auctions. 'We are truly honored to present a select series of automobiles from the Ruger Collection as a featured attraction at our upcoming St. John's sale as we further build on our reputation as the specialists for private and estate collection sales,' adds Fairbairn.

The select vehicles from the Ruger Collection will be joined at the St. John's sale by a charming assortment of other important and historic collector cars, with a strong emphasis on American marques to continue the sale's tradition of celebrating America's rich automotive history.
