The auction is being held to raise funds for those with disabilities and for the QuadPara Association of South Africa.

Chris Routledge, Coys’ chief executive, explained that the auction house has had “a long-standing association with the classic car world in South Africa and have for many years worked closely with the Franschhoek Motor Museum, which boasts one of the world’s finest historic motor car collections, to foster and develop the historic car movement in the country.

“We are delighted to be working alongside the Franschhoek Motor Museum and Concours South Africa to hold a classic car and memorabilia auction in honor of some great South African charities.”
