Auctions America – Lee Hartung Collection, Glenview, Illinois, November 3 – 5, 2011

Auctions America by RM in partnership with RM Auctions will lift the gavel on one of the Chicago area’s best known treasures, the famous Lee Roy Hartung Collection, during a multi-day sale in Glenview, Illinois, November 3 – 5, 2011. Well-known to collectors around the world, the Hartung Collection was amassed over five decades by the late Mr. Lee Roy Hartung for display in his private museum. From motor cars to motorcycles, bicycles, license plates and other vintage memorabilia, the amazing collection is comprised of items Hartung acquired locally, many from within a 15-mile radius of his Glenview location. Following his passing in May 2011, Hartung’s impressive collection will be offered ‘without reserve’ in November, presenting a unique range of ownership opportunities for those looking to continue his amazing legacy. In fact, in Lee Roy’s own words and sentiments, he always viewed himself as a caretaker to the items in his collection, and he anticipated its dispersal to appreciative collectors greatly.

  1. I used to walk by Lee's house every day on the way to school. The name Hartung was posted on the mailbox next to the road. I would see Lee every now and then either driving one his cars or working near the main barn door. Little did i know all that he had in that barn. A few of his cars i have seen him driving. I just wasn't as car crazy as i am now. I just drove by his property today and saw either a temple or other religious building being built there. My, what a history. Thanks Lee. Sincerly, Your former neighbor. 🙂
