Motor enthusiasts from around the world are expected to descend on a sleepy rural town after 84-year-old Charlie McCarron announced he was selling his collection of rare and classic cars.
In a warehouse in Canowindra, in the central west of NSW, sit 60 historic Holdens, collected by the 84-year-old who spent 52 years running the local car yard.
Now the former car salesman is putting the lot under the hammer.

Charlie’s collection is considered one of the greatest in Australia and his mint-condition cars are expected to go for millions over the course of a three day auction.
Car parts and memorabilia will also be up for grabs.

Among the much sought after classics are a 1959 Holden FC, a 1968 Monaro GTS, a 1959 model ute and a 1950 Armstrong Siddeley.

His ‘pride and joy’ is a 48/215, one of the first cars to drive off Holden’s production line.
Charlie believes his 1948 Holden is valued at ‘about a million bucks’, it’s one of only 6 left in Australia.

The auction will be conducted by Burns and Co from September 30 to October 2.
