1953 Cadillac and other rare roadsters to auction in Canada

Renowned car collector Al Webster is putting his vintage collection up for sale in Ontario

For as long as he can remember, Al Webster has been crazy about cars. And now he is auctioning his collection on October 17, in Ontario, Canada.

All automobiles will go under the hammer at no reserve, making it a very inviting prospect for car lovers.

Highlights of the sale include a 1953 Cadillac Eldorado convertible - one of only 525 ever built. The car has had work done on it, including rebuilt windows, seats and top, and the transmission.

According to the event catalogue, Al and his wife used it in a 1,000 mile-round road trip.

A 1934 Ford Supercharged Roadster will also appear. It was restored using the original V8 with a 1936 McCullough Supercharger, and featured in the V8 Times magazine.

Also going under the hammer will be a 1940 Chevrolet Special Deluxe customised convertible coupe. It stored for 50 years, and is one of the true original period-correct customs of the era.

A legendary 1957 Morgan Plus 4 Roadster will also appear. It is an excellent restoration, refinished in two-tone paint. Equipped with a fold-down windscreen, and ready for open-air motoring.

After a preview on Friday, October 16, 2009 (2pm-8pm), the main auction takes place on Saturday October 17, opening at 9am, at The Page Farm in Bradford West Gwillimbury, Ontario.
