Almost every museum eventually gets to the point that it faces storage limits, and institutions periodically evaluate their collections to weed out what no longer fits, what’s unlikely to be displayed, or what they may have gotten a better example of.
That’s what Lane Motor Museum is currently doing. As our focus evolves and sharpens, our Director and Curator have studied the Collection with an eye to the above, and made some hard choices. In keeping with responsible collection management practices, we have made the decision to part with the following vehicles. Some are in great condition, some are project cars, with others somewhere in between. We would like to provide others with the opportunity to revive, restore, and enjoy these cars, rather than consigning them to decades of dark, dusty storage. Even though they may no longer be here, we will be continuing our mission of sharing these unique cars with the public.
Be assured, these selections were not made without considerable deliberation and discussion. We hope that making space for new acquisitions will allow us to strengthen the stories we are able to tell through our collection in the coming years.
These are the ONLY vehicles available at this time.
