Although it’s being billed as a Clocks, Watches & Scientific Instruments auction, a dozen collector cars produced between 1909 and 1963 are on the docket for Skinner’s spring sale scheduled for April 28 in Marlborough, Massachusetts.

Ten of the classic automobiles come from the estate of Eugene Bunce, a civil engineer and car collector. Bunce, founder of Bunce Industries of Stow, Massachusetts, held several U.S. patents and was a member of the Minuteman Model A Club, Maynard Area Auto Club, Central Mass Model T Club, New England Vintage T-Bird Club and the Early V8 Ford Club.

Also featured in the auction are a 1937 Cord Phaeton 812 that for many years was displayed at the New England Air Museum and a 1951 Packard 250 convertible.

With offices in Boston, Marlborough, Miami and New York, Skinner has been in business for more than four decades and stages more than 60 auctions a year, specializing in fine and decorative arts, jewelry, modern design, musical and scientific instruments, wine and more.
