Microcar Museum to auction inventory

September 21, 2012 12:00 AM

The Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum will auction off its entire inventory during a two-day sale in February. RM Auctions, the world's largest car auction house, will manage the sales.

For over 15 years, Bruce Weiner has collected some of the world's smallest cars. According to The Wall Street Journal, most of the inventory dates from the 1940s to 1960s. Some of the most prized possessions to hit the auction block will be the only surviving 1961 KR201 Sport and rare Messerschmitt models such as the 1957 Roadster and Tiger. Various car accessories and 1950s memorabilia will also be included in the sale.

"Bruce Weiner is the consummate collector with an incredible sense of fun and remarkable eye for rarity and quality-elements that are all perfectly reflected in his prized collection," said Rob Myers, founder of RM Auctions. "With many items having been closely guarded in private ownership, and the vast majority coming to public auction for the first time, the sale is truly unprecedented."

While Weiner says that the cars have brought him an unprecedented amount of joy, being able to share them with the world is the most important part. He has dedicated much of his life to auto repair and restoration, and now he wishes to let others get in on the action.
