EACH CAR HAS ITS OWN STORY

BRITISH COLLECTOR SELLING 450 CAR COLLECTION

All you need to own this Collection is a cool £100 Million or so...
James Hull, 53, who founded the James Hull Associates, owns more than 450 rare and classic cars, ranging from multi-million pound rare Jaguars to Winston Churchill's Austin, and a Bentley once owned by Elton John.

With no room to park them all near his home in Kensington, west London, he garages them in vast warehouses in Herefordshire, but has now decided to sell up because of health reasons.
None of the cars is cheap, but a buyer with particularly deep pockets is needed, because Dr Hull says he is determined to sell the 457-strong collection as a whole.\

He is hoping a buyer will come in with a £100million-plus offer, making it the highest value car sale in Britain.

For that price, the buyer will get 457 classic vehicles, 365 pedal cars and 300 pieces of memorabilia including model aircraft from WW1 and WW2.

"Each car has its own story"

 'It's the culmination of a life-long hobby.  Each car has its own story and all have played a part in the history of British motoring.  It's part of our heritage.

"I'm merely a passionate custodian of this hugely significant part of British history and, with luck, I will succeed in finding a home that can not only be enjoyed and treasured by the British public but also be admired by visitors from across the world."

A number of Dr Hull's cars have appeared at motor shows around the world, competed in the Mille Miglia Italian road-race, and even been used for the Queen’s 80th birthday parade.

There are also dozens of cars which have won concourse awards, and a collection of British camper vans from the 1940s, 50s and 60s, as well as early Land Rovers, classic Range Rovers,and a Sinclair C5 from the 1980s.

The collection, which is being sold privately, has already had a "huge amount of interest" from private buyers and consortia, from overseas as well as nearer to home, but Dr Hull hopes it will remain in Britain.
"He does immense service to the classic car movement in keeping these cars in top condition, and the sale of the collection will attract enormous interest from around the world."

"We of course hope that whoever buys them allows them to be seen and enjoyed by enthusiasts for years to come."

Good luck to you, Dr. Hull and thank you for "Preserving Automotive History...One Car at a Time®".
