Heritage Auctions and Leake Auction Company will present museum collection February 23-24 in Oklahoma City.
“Both William Rolland and the two cooperating auction houses all agreed rescheduling the Dec. 9 auction was in the absolute best interests of our customers,” said Richard Sevenoaks, president of Leake Auction Company. “Although we are disappointed, we are excited to bring these vehicles at our Oklahoma City auction. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the wildfires.”
William Rolland has always been fascinated by the performance, uniqueness, and rarity of high performance automobiles. During the 1950’s, he joined the Shadoff Chrysler team to help construct one of the fastest vehicles ever built. They were going after the land speed record in their class at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. To this day he still has a passion for performance and speed.
In 2010, Rolland opened the Rolland Racing Museum, a private automobile exhibit located in Newbury Park, California. The museum is home to a variety of collectible automobiles, including 5 Indianapolis race cars, 6 midget race cars from the 1950’s, and 7 custom hot rods.
Many of the automobiles from his collection will be offered without reserve on December 9, 2017 in the Rolland Racing Museum located in Newbury Park, California.
