Gene Ponder Classic Car Collection - Live & Online Bidding

Event Information

Tucked away on the outskirts of the East Texas city of Marshall is a gearhead’s oasis: A series of state-of-the-art shop and garage buildings dotted across a manicured estate. Housed within is the Gene Ponder Collection, an eclectic assemblage of over 120 cars, motorcycles, and boats, as well an enviable and expansive selection of automobilia. Ponder—a serial entrepreneur—built and sold not one, but two highly successful Marshall-based commercial cabinetry manufacturers, allowing him to indulge in his lifelong passion for exciting automobiles.

Blue-chip purebreds highlight the collection, including a 1960 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster, 1960 Maserati 3500 GT Spyder, 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC, and 1956 Porsche 356 A 1600 Speedster; a pair of dazzling Aston Martin DB2/4 Drophead Coupes features a notable one-off example by Graber. Also on offer is an impressive survey of MGs spanning 1927 to 1971—with rarities such as a 1935 MG PB Airline Coupe taking center stage—as well as a number of hand-crafted replicas and tributes to all-but-unobtainable European sportscars seldom seen outside of museums.

Automobilia lots range from mascots to classic signage, juke boxes to fuel pumps, neons to wall art, and much, much more. No matter your interest, there is truly something for everyone to discover in the Gene Ponder Collection.
