The treasures of the Tupelo Automobile Museum are up for auction

Classic & Sports Car Logo By Chris Rowlands of Classic & Sports Car | Slide 1 of 25: Since 2002, the Tupelo Automobile Museum has housed the car collection of the late Frank Spain – an incredible assortment of 178 classics that took 28 painstaking years to assemble.

Alas, not any more: despite the valiant efforts of his widow, Jane, and a volunteer team, the Mississippi museum is sadly shutting its doors. And all of its exhibits are being auctioned.

From signs and posters to rare vintage motors, the entire museum stock is going under the hammer, with prices ranging from £75 ($100) to £1.5m ($2m), in a sale expected to fetch more than $10m.

What’s up for grabs? And what will be done with the funds raised? Here’s all the info.
