Leake Auctions supplies several collector cars to selected Ritchie Bros. heavy equipment auctions | Ritchie Bros. photos

Amidst all of the huge, heavy and expensive industrial vehicles on the docket for upcoming Ritchie Bros. auctions, the company that now owns Leake Auctions is offering several collector cars at its sales.

The idea is to expose the collector car hobby to a wider audience and, after all, a sale is a sale.

On Friday, June 21, several collector cars will cross the block at the Ritchie Bros. equipment sale at Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Among them are a 1966 Ford Mustang resto-mod with a 460 Super Cobra Jet engine and 4-speed gearbox; a 1967 resto-mod Mustang; a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air; a 1958 Chrysler New Yorker with a 392cid Hemi V8; a 1941 Plymouth P11 deluxe business coupe with a 350cid Chevy V8 under its hood; a customized 1947 Ford coupe with a 351 V8; a 1955 Ford Thunderbird; a 1960 Chevrolet Impala; a 1965 Pontiac GTO convertible; a 1970 Pontiac GTO coupe; and a 1969 Ford F100.

Being offered online through Iron Planet, another Ritchie Bros. company, are several additional collector cars, including a 1957 Chevrolet 3200 custom stepside pickup truck; a 7-passenger 1941 Cadillac Series 75 Fleetwood; a 1974 Ford Bronco; a 1935 DeSoto custom two-door sedan, with a 350 Chevy small block and done up as a short-track racer;  a 1941 Cadillac Eldorado Sixty Special; a 1983 GMC Sierra pickup; and a 1955 Thunderbird.
