Lifelong enthusiasts and collectors, the father-son duo Paul and Chris Andrews have built a collection of cars that is unrivalled in terms of its quality, presentation and historical significance. Paul, a successful entrepreneur, and his son Chris, an accomplished artist and businessman, share the passion of preserving automotive history. Together they have built an impressive museum of cars. The collectors thoroughly research every acquisition, nurture relationships with the world’s leading experts in a variety of marques and genres, and commission work from the top craftsmen and restorers in the country. RM Auctions will lift the gavel on the prized and highly respected Paul and Chris Andrews Collection during a single-vendor sale in Fort Worth, Texas, from April 30, 2015 to May 2, 2015.

All the activity surrounding the collection has proven to be quite challenging and time consuming for the Andrews, which is why they have chosen to sell 75 motor cars and a wide assortment of memorabilia. All lots will be offered without reserve, selling to the highest bidder.

“We want to get down to a smaller number of cars – perhaps 15 to 20 – that we very much enjoy driving and that we can use on events with the family. There are a number of events we’d still like to try overseas and here in the United States, and in order to do that, we need to focus on a more manageable collection,” said Chris.

Well-known and admired by the global collector community, the Paul and Chris Andrews Collection boasts of superb group of hot rods to a flawless selection of American classics and some of the finest sports and GT cars in existence. Each vehicle has been expertly maintained by a team of specialists.
