The docket for Broad Arrow Auctions’ inaugural Monterey Jet Center Auction has just grown, thanks to the addition of 28 cars from Mr. William “Bill” Fleischman — many of which offered at no reserve.

Broad Arrows Monterey sale is scheduled for August 18 at the Monterey Jet Center. The sale will feature approximately 80 collector cars alongside Hagerty’s Motorlux event — formerly the McCall’s Motorworks Revival.

“Arriving at the decision to sell my collection of cars was not easy. They have been part of my life and my family’s life for decades,” said Mr. Fleischman. “However, for me personally, the time has come, and I want to see other collectors and enthusiasts enjoy these special examples just as I have. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with David Swig and members of his team for many years and I know he shares in my understanding of what these cars truly represent as enthusiast examples. What makes most car collectors unique is their appreciation for the details in each car they acquire, and I look forward to sharing those unique details and stories this August in Monterey.”

Highlights of the Fleischman Collection include a 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort — one of 292 produced — and a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT with less than 3,500 miles on the odometer. Also crossing the auction block is a rare 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring, a model that has skyrocketed in value the past few years, and a black 1981 BMW M1 — one of just two (some say three) finished in that color. the M1 will be offered without reserve.

Among the other no-reserve cars crossing the block are a 1993 Jaguar XJ220, 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series III and 1932 Ford Model 18 Roadster Hot Rod. Two of the newer offerings from the collection are a beautiful 2000 Ferrari 550 Maranello finished in Rosso Fiorano and a 1,794-mile 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 — both selling without reserve.
