The Baillon collection auctioned by Artcurial
Last auction of the week, one of the most famous barn finds of the last years. In the fifties French businessman Roger Baillon started to collect cars. In the seventy’s, Baillon did not do so well, he had to sell a big part of his collection, 200 cars though, he kept. They were kept in plain barns for fifty years. Last year his grandchildren invited some specialists to have a look at the cars. No need to say they had a big surprise. French auctioneers from Artcurial must have thought to be in a dreamworld on the farm near Poitiers. Friday 5th of February 60 cars were on auction.
A Talbot Lago T26 Grand Sport coupé Saoutchik. The car sold for E 1.700.000.
