Tulsa, OK (Thursday, April 30, 2015) – Leake Auction Company just secured a 150 car collection that will be sold at NO RESERVE during their Tulsa auction, June 5, 6 &7 in the River Spirt Expo on the Tulsa Fairgrounds. The Klairmont Kollection includes a wide array of vehicles, from Ford Model A’s, to Rolls-Royce Silver Spurs and Ford Thunderbirds.

Larry Klairmont, owner of Klairmont Kollections in Chicago, started collecting cars 15 years ago. During that time, he amassed a 500 car collection. It is considered to be one of the largest and most significant collections in the Midwest. In 2011, Klairmont opened his 150,000 square-foot building for charities and special events. He is out of space and has decided to upgrade the quality of cars in his collection and focus on extremely rare and unusual cars.
The portion of the Klairmont Kollection to be auctioned in Tulsa features vehicles spanning almost 100 years, going back to 1915. A variety of vehicle makes will be offered including: Austin, Bentley, BMW, Bricklin, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Citroen, Daimler, Delorean, Excalibur, Ferrari, Ford, Jaguar, Jeep, Lincoln, Mercedes Benz, MG, Oldsmobile, Packard, Plymouth, Rolls-Royce and Volkswagon.
“I have developed a strong, trusting relationship with Leake Auction Company,” Larry Klairmont stated. “They have a proven track record in the car auction business. When I decided to sell a portion of my collection, they were the obvious choice.”
