Early Foreign Collectors at Keeneland
The Foreign Collector class at the Keeneland Concours d'Elegance include classic foreign built automobiles manufactured through 1972. One of the cars in this class was a beautiful 1961 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II which saw luxury features such as power steering and electric windows in a package with a top speed of 105 mph and could go 0-60 in under 11 seconds. Pretty amazing for the time.
Also in the field was a fantastic 1957 MG MGA that has fewer than 70,000 original miles on the clock, a 1965 Porsche 356 SC Coupe which was the last model of this original Porsche classic, a 1962 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II with an amazing 35,000 original miles, a 1969 Mercedes Benz 280 SL Roadster which was originally bought by the current owner's father when the owner was only five, a fabulous 1959 Aston Martin DB2 Mk III which was actually the type of car James Bond drove in the novel Goldfinger, and a unique 1965 Acadian Beaumont Sport Deluxe built by GM in Canada and is one of that country's rarest automobiles.
