Fifty cars from the Leaded Gas Classics and the Jim McLane collection will be offered at Leake Auction Company’s February 24-26 Oklahoma City sale at no reserve, the auction house has announced. McLane owns the Leaded Gas Classics dealership and car collection based in Alabaster, Alabama.

“Presenting a collection of this caliber, without reserve, is a great way to kick off our 45th year in the auction business,” Richard Sevenoaks, Leake’s president, said in a news release. “This is an impressive collection of vehicles that have been very well-maintained. (Curator) Eric Joiner of Leaded Gas Classics has been a client for many years. We have worked with him to select the best cars for our auction.”

Among the cars being offered from the McLane/Leaded Gas collection are a 2006 Ford GT, a 1968 Shelby Mustang GT500KR convertible, a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427 convertible, a 1970 Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda (one of only 12 in Sassy Grass color), a 1989 Ferrari Testarossa, a 1928 Chevrolet Depot Hack “desert coach” and a one-off 1968 Pontiac LeMans Safari prototype sport truck built by Pontiac for the division’s president.

The auction will be held in the newly opened Bennett Event Center at Oklahoma’s State Fair Park.

  1. In reference to the 1968 Pontiac LeMans Safari Prototype Sport truck which you are offering in your February Oklahoma City auction Pontiac in that era of General Motors did not have a President. There was only one President back then and he would be President of General Motors Corporation. In 1968 John Zachary DeLorean was General Sales and Service Manager – Pontiac Motor Division and the level was referred to as a GM Vice President.

    Your Respected company is regarded by many as a reference source to the industry thus I am offering this slight correction.
    Sincerely, Charlie Barnett III, Oldsmobile Sales Marketing, retired.
