Some collectors seek out celebrity memorabilia. Others collect classic cars. Once in a while those fields intersect, however, as they are set to at RM Auctions' upcoming Automobiles of Arizona event.
Still several months away, the Canadian auction house is already lining up consignments. This year they'll be featuring classic British motors as well as several important examples of Ferrari's history. But few are as exciting as the celebrity factor behind these four early announcements: a rare 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Spyder once owned by baseball legend Reggie Jackson and motorcycle stuntman Evel Knievel, estimated at a million dollars; the 1929 Duesenberg Model J Dual Cowl Phaeton driven by Elvis Presley in the movie Spinout (also estimated around a million), a 1941 Lincoln Continental Coupe given by Orson Wells to Rita Hayworth (pictured above, estimated around $175k) and a 1949 Cadillac Series 75 Woodie Limousine commissioned by MGM studios from the Schwartz garage (~$300k).
Watch this space for more info and photos as the event is still three months away.
