Among the main attraction consignments is rock ‘n’ roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis’ 1959 Harley-Davidson FLH Duo-Glide (Lot S157) offered by “The Killer” himself after 55 years of ownership, most recently on proud display in the rock ‘n’ roll legend’s own living room. In addition, 24 cars from the prestigious Wellborn Musclecar Museum Collection, of Alexander City, Ala., will also cross the block as auction headliners. Among this outstanding assemblage is the most highly optioned 1971 Dodge Hemi Charger R/T (Lot F187) known to exist. The car is one of only 63 built in the model’s final year of production with the 426/425hp Hemi engine and also one of very few equipped with the rare code-M51 power sunroof option. Another stellar consignment from the Wellborn Musclecar Museum Collection is a 1969 Dodge Hemi four-speed Daytona (Lot F180). The car has been driven just 6,435 miles, making it the lowest-mileage example known to exist with its original Hemi engine still intact.
