VanDerBrink Auctions Brings Historic Quam Automobile Collection Auction to Proxibid

Omaha, Nebraska – August 3, 2015 – Proxibid (, the most trusted online Marketplace for buying and selling highly valued items, will provide online bidding for VanDerBrink Auctions’ upcoming auction of the Quam Collection. The sale will take place September 26th at 10 AM in Boone, Iowa― just miles from Ames, where Grant Quam originally collected and preserved the one-of-a-kind collection of automobiles.


Grant Quam understood the value of hard work, and meticulously cared for each of the cars in this collection. Mr. Quam’s knowledge of and love for cars has allowed for this rare collection of older restored, originals, and barn cars to be preserved, and now, sold to the public in a historic sale. Many of the cars in this collection were made by manufacturers that no longer exist and produced in low numbers, making it one of the most unique collections to ever cross the auction block. Featured cars in this sale include:


  • 1920 Peerless Model 56 Roadster: Purchased from the famed Harrah Collection, Grant Quam rarely showed this car to the public. Mr. Harrah was noted as saying, this was the best preserved original car that he had ever seen and owned, and today, it ranks as a Condition 1 Preservation Vehicle.
  • 1925 Kissel Model 75 Gold Bug Speedster: Originally manufactured in Wisconsin, the Kissel Model 75 has extensive records of previous ownership and has been restored several times. This vehicle has won awards at numerous auto shows, and is truly one-of-a-kind due to the low production of Kissel Kars. It’s believe to be only one of five left in the world.
  • 1936 Pierce Arrow Country Club Roadster: Believed to be only one of three Pierce Arrows in existence today, this car has been completely repainted to custom “Butternut Coffee” colors. The car has been stored in a climate controlled building since it was purchased.
  • 1957 Studebaker Supercharged Golden Hawk: Finished in white and gold, the rare Studebaker is running and driving ready for the next owner to enjoy. Purchased by Mr. Quam in 1979 from a Horseless Carriage Show in Dunedin, Florida, the car is only one of eight that was installed with a rare continental kit.

“This is one of the most wonderful collections of rare and unique cars I have seen,” said Yvette VanDerBrink, owner and auctioneer of VanDerBrink Auctions, LLC. “This is an example of unusual automotive history collectors won’t want to miss.
