The Lee Roy Hartung Collection Auction = Chicago

Post by spdway1 » September 13th, 2011, 5:58 pm

WOW, looks like a great collection, or us younger guys refer to it as a "Hoard", glad to see all these great treasures are going to made available to the public reguardless of the conditions of vehicles, part, signs and motorcycles offered. I understand that area flodded frequently and you can see the water lines on some of the vehicles and motorcycles.
There is alot of talk abouth the Chicago PD Ford AA paddy wagon converted from an original bus.
Here is the link for the auction listing: http://auctionsamerica.com/events/event ... eCode=LH11

Yep, sure would be nice to see that auction. Don't think my check book is thick enough. Interesting red and blue head lights. Be sort of tough to drive at night with something like that. Sort of makes me think that it's not the real deal.

Dave,
It is a "AA" bus coverted by Lee Roy into a paddy Wagon. So it is not real, but still interesting. Don Jr
