Description

Two days with a wide variety of fun & excitement! Featuring the 50 year collection of Daryl Hemken, with a few other special cars included. Over 60 great cars from the 30’s - 60’s. Most are Post War. Many convertibles. Thousands of parts, automobilia, porcelain signs, pressed steel toys, bicycles, pedal cars, model cars and more! Join the fun and help pass on the legacy of his collection. Others can love these automotive marques like he did. Ann Hemken, Daryl’s wife of 50 years, had spent her career as a educator, but was also actively involved in the museum. So the museum board thought it appropriate for McPherson College, in McPherson, KS, to be a benefactor from the proceeds of the museum auction. McPherson is the only college in the nation with a 4-year degree in auto restoration. McPherson interns, Jimmy Pawlak and Spencer Ice, spent weeks on-site preparing many of the cars for this auction.

1940 Buick Business Special Coupe. Daryl and Ann Hemken

Lot # 151 (Sale Order: 151 of 319)      

1940 Buick Business Special Coupe. Daryl and Ann Hemken bought it from Al Berger in 1978 in Lohrville, Iowa. They drove it home and continued to enjoy driving it around. ...moreThe steering wheel, running boards, and running board molding are all redone. It has been re-painted one time, otherwise everything is original. The seats were re-stuffed and original upholstery fabric was re-used. Vehicle runs and drives great. The '40 Special Coupe cost $795 from the dealer and included the 248ci straight 8. The car was intended for sales and businessmen and even included a curtain that hung behind the front seat. The rear area does not contain a seat and the trunk has a flat wood surface built above the spare tire, providing even more room for sales samples or equipment someone might use as a traveling business.

1947 DeSoto. This is one of those "too good not to save

Lot # 152 (Sale Order: 152 of 319)      

1947 DeSoto. This is one of those "too good not to save" cars Daryl Hemken purchased from a collector in 1979. With just 31,000 original miles on the odometer, the car wa...mores destined to be used as a parts car for Hemken's 1948 DeSoto convertible. The roof and windshield were caved in when the former owner's storage garage had a roof collapse, so he let it go at auction. Hemken brought it home, realized how nice the car was and with a repaint it's now ready for the road. The '47 DeSoto's were dead ringers for the '46 models due to material shortages post-WW2, but the 237ci straight six engine and dependable manual three-speed transmission made these solid purchases. This one runs nice and still shows it is well worth saving.

1948 Cadillac Convertible. "Symbol of

Lot # 153 (Sale Order: 153 of 319)      

1948 Cadillac Convertible. "Symbol of Supremacy America's finest motor car" shouted the GM top-of-the-line Cadillac, which led the redesign charge with the industry's fir...morest all-new post-war styling. Daryl Hemken became the second owner of this convertible in 1965 when he purchased it from a Des Moines couple who were Christian Science Practitioners and used the car primarily to drive to the Mother Church in Boston. The all-new post-war Caddy's sported tail fins inspired by the P-38 fighter plane, a shortened wheelbase and a 2" wider track that provided more interior room. The Cadillac 346ci flathead V-8 remained, however, for another year when Cadillac introduced the overhead valve 331ci engine. That engine produced 160 horsepower, 10 horsepower more than the flathead. The engine in this car was overhauled in 1990. In hibernation for a number of years, it's still running well and is fully expected to make someone a "showy" and fun to drive Caddy convertible.

1953 Packard Caribbean Convertible. Purchased in 1964

Lot # 154 (Sale Order: 154 of 319)      

1953 Packard Caribbean Convertible. Purchased in 1964 from Austin Helgerson in Des Moines, this non-running Packard Caribbean is completely intact. Standard features on t...morehis car placed it in the ultra-luxury class of the automobiles of the era. Standard features included full leather interior, chrome wire wheels, full length hood scoop, chrome wheel well trim, and continental tire kit. There were 750 of these first-year convertibles built, costing $5210 from the dealer, compared to its "sister" convertible, the series 2679. 1518 of those were built, but the dealer price was almost $2000 less at $3486. The Caribbean was based on Packard's 1952 show car, the Pan American convertible. The Caribbean's received extensive modifications by the Mitchell-Bentley Corporation in Ionia, Michigan. Those modifications included full cutout rear wheel fender wells with wide chrome trim. As Packard pointed out in its advertising the 1953 lineup was "America's most exciting car! Packard. Ask the Man who owns one!"

1923 Model T Ford. Daryl Hemken purchased this car in

Lot # 155 (Sale Order: 155 of 319)      

1923 Model T Ford. Daryl Hemken purchased this car in 1993 from Les Anderson in Kanawha, Iowa and used it to teach his sons how to drive. These cars are driven using one ...moreof three pedals with the left pedal the low and high gears, the center pedal for reverse and the right pedal for the brake. Obviously if you could handle driving a Model T it gave you great driving skills! The early '23's had forward opening doors, the last year for that configuration. Later in the year Ford placed a shelf behind the seat and the doors opened from the rear. This car remains fully functioning and drives well once you get used to the pedal.

1927 Model T "Snowbird" This is a rare restored

Lot # 156 (Sale Order: 156 of 319)      

1927 Model T "Snowbird". This is a rare restored snowmobile conversion that was purchased from the postmaster of Blairsburg, Iowa in 1970. It is fully operational but has...moren't been run since its restoration, so everything remains in excellent condition. There are very few of these in existence. In 1917 Virgil D. White, a Ford dealer located in Ossipee, New Hampshire patented the idea of what he called the "snowmobile". Rather than making a completely new vehicle, White fabricated a conversion kit for his Model T allowing the car to travel in deep snow, making impassable roads accessible in the bitter New Hampshire winter. It included wooden and metal skis to replace the front wheels, plus an extra axle and wheels around back. The early kits used tracks made of metal cleats connected by heavy fabric, but that was later updated to stamped steel shoes with chain links connecting them. To accommodate the modifications, the factory rear axle, rear spring, radius rods, and driveshaft were swapped out. In their place went a 7:1 Ford truck worm gear driveline, which was anchored to the frame using two cantilevered semi-elliptical springs.

1928 Ford Model A Grocery Wagon. This fully restored

Lot # 157 (Sale Order: 157 of 319)      

1928 Ford Model A Grocery Wagon. This fully restored Model A "Huckster wagon" was originally used as a grocery delivery vehicle and was displayed at Living History Farms ...morein Urbandale, Iowa before being purchased in 2004 for the Hemken Collection. The hucksters were used for many purposes and built by outside craftsmen who would build the rear sections to specifications using high quality wood. The name huckster is derived from the term used to describe someone who sells small items door to door or from a small store. Typical huckster wagons began life as Model A pickup trucks with the rear bed discarded and the huckster body built and installed. Delivery trucks were commonly used as were train depot hucksters to transport luggage. This one is completely drivable and ready to make that next delivery.

Lot # 158 (Sale Order: 158 of 319)      

1932 Chevrolet Confederate Deluxe Sedan. This 1932 Chevy still wears its original paint providing a nice patina appearance. All exterior components are in place including...more the dual side fender spare tires, the chromed spoke wheels and the chrome engine vents on each side of the hood. The car was donated to the museum in 2009 by Albert Wilbolm of Colo, Iowa. Even the interior of this 4-door sedan is near perfect except for some fabric fading. The interior trim and dash gauges are all in excellent condition. The car still has the lace fabric pull-down shades on the side and rear windows for those times when privacy is important. The car runs and drives, but an engine knock may need to be investigated.

Willys Knight 1928 Model 56 Touring Sedan. A true “Barn Find”

Lot # 158a (Sale Order: 159 of 319)      

Willys Knight 1928 Model 56 Touring Sedan. A true “Barn Find” automobile. Put in storage by the second owner in 1951, now…70 years later it was extracted from a storage b...moreuilding with doors that had been screwed shut. Last licensed in the year it went in storage, the title is currently missing in action. Willys-Knight automobiles were produced between 1914 and 1933 by the Willys-Overland Company of Toledo, Ohio. The Willys-Knight employed a rare Knight sleeve valve engine invented by Charles Yale Knight. John North Willys was the first US auto maker to buy this license. Without the more common noisy valve system, these engines ran much more quietly. Willys-Knight production ended in November 1932 (model year 1933) when the company, in receivership, stopped building higher priced cars, and instead focused on the manufacture of the inexpensive but durable Willys 77. Willys-Knight automobiles were top of the line American Luxury cars and carried very hefty price tags for their time. This car, is a survivor in original condition. It does appear as though it may have had a red re-paint sometime in it’s life. Likely by the second owner who bought this Willys in 1949. He drove it to High School. A red car would be a much more appealing car for a young man in High School. Everything else about this car appears to be original, including the 34,665 miles on the odometer. Minus it’s fabric top, the body and interior are in very good condition. This Willys Knight was powered by a 157.6 ci Knight sleeve valve 6 cyl engine. It produced 45hp. Serial number indicates it was built mid-year 1928 in Toledo, OH. This car currently doesn't run but would be another excellent candidate for refurbishing back to original or restoration.

1956 Lincoln Mark II. Ford Motor Company introduced the

Lot # 161 (Sale Order: 163 of 319)      

1956 Lincoln Mark II. Ford Motor Company introduced the Continental in 1956 as its newest division, bringing back the concept of the Lincoln Continental which the company...more dropped at the end of the 1948 model year. This car was sold in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to a horse farm in Keswick, Iowa, the only one sold from that dealership during the two year production of this top-of-the-line exclusive personal luxury line. Daryl Hemken found the car in Des Moines and purchased it from a Lincoln dealer in 1964. In 1965 the Continental was driven to Michigan from Williams, Iowa with four little boys in the back and from 1970-1971 it was driven by Ann Hemken as her personal car to and from Kamrar, Iowa where she was a teacher. The car was repainted but otherwise is completely original and runs and drives as it was delivered from the factory. The Continental Mark II was the most expensive American-produced car at the time and was marketed to compete with the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. It came only as a two-door hardtop coupe using standard Lincoln drivetrain components with the remainder of the car hand assembled which probably led to its demise in 1957. The Continental Mark II had an extensive list of standard equipment. Equipped with power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, power vent windows, and full instrumentation, including a tachometer and a low-level fuel warning. The Mark II was offered with nineteen standard exterior colors and 43 interior design schemes with five interior fabrics. The factory price for the car was $9695 which is equivalent to $96,200 in today's dollars. The interior featured Bridge of Weir vat dyed leather from the Scottish village which was well known for its exceptional quality and used in the world's most exclusive automobiles. The car used Lincolns 3'68ci Y-block V-8 and the company's 3-speed Turbo-Drive automatic. But those engines weren't just taken from the Lincoln factory production line, but were chosen, disassembled, factory-blueprinted and reassembled following a rigorous quality control and performance inspection. Even the car's vaned wheel covers weren't just regular production items, each one having individually fastened vanes. A total of 2500 Continental Mark II's were built.

1931 Ford Model A Victoria Sedan. In 1938 Melvin (Slim)

Lot # 162 (Sale Order: 164 of 319)      

1931 Ford Model A Victoria Sedan. In 1938 Melvin (Slim) Rutherford from Whiting, Indiana was promoting an overhead valve conversion head that would provide a more efficie...morent way to draw power from the venerable Ford 4-cylinder flathead engines. The Rutherford head was among several conversions being offered to racers and hot rodders alike and it was one of these conversion heads that led to the creation of this amazing 1931 Ford Model A Victoria sedan. The story of the car actually starts with the engine. Merv Criser, a retired Wichita fire fighter, bought a Rutherford head from a coworker for one hundred dollars in 1959. The owner didn't really want to sell the OHV head, but a financial problem (rod through the block) and a serious marital problem (he tore the engine down in his wife's laundry room) strongly influenced his decision to let it go. Merv stored the Rutherford head for three decades, until a close friend, who was an avid racing enthusiast, convinced him to part with this rare artifact from the early days of racing. The years passed by, and a decade later Merv re-acquired the Rutherford from the estate sale that followed the death of his good friend in 1999. Merv had his Rutherford back, and it was time to start a project that would properly showcase the conversion head. Since a four-cylinder engine equipped with a Rutherford OHV conversion would sure be something out of the ordinary, he wanted it in a Ford. But which one? Amazingly, the perfect car for the project came along at just the right time. The 1931 Vicky was an older restoration that had been done many years ago and located less than 30 miles from Wichita. It was in good running condition and driven under its own power to Merv's friend Tom Ruggles' shop. Tom helped perform the magic! Now it's a masterpiece of restoration with rust free body, perfect paint, leather interior and a contemporary air conditioning system installed for good measure. The Rutherford is mated to a 200.5 ci Model B engine which was modified to match up with the Rutherford head. Opening the hood produces awe inspiring gasps and further detail about the build can be found at www.RichPennAuctions.com. But it did get better. Dismantling the Vicky revealed a chassis and body that were in excellent condition, with no evidence of any rust or collision damage. The frame was unmodified and straight, and examination of the original sheet metal showed a Model A that had survived for eighty years with no significant deterioration. This was perfect because Merv wanted to be very close to original appearance when the restoration was completed.

1969 Corvette L88 with matching numbers. Chevrolet

Lot # 164 (Sale Order: 166 of 319)      

1969 Corvette L88 with matching numbers. Chevrolet built L88 Corvettes for just 3 years, 1967-69. Total production was just 216, with 116 of them in 1969. It was GM's int...moreention to limit this car to just serious race teams. But it was sold to the public. Video of this rare Corvette available at www.RichPennAuctions.com. Paste the link in your browser. This is one of those that made it into public hands and survived. Found stored in a garage for over 20 years, it took five more years and a complete frame off restoration to get it back to the pristine condition it is in now. This is a rare one indeed. Of the 116 built in that final year, many were raced. Many did not survive. And when you screen those remainders and look for a "Triple Black"...a small handful might still exist. This L88 is rare indeed. The tank order sheet survived and 1911 numbers have been checked and matched. The odometer shows 24,300 original miles. The original hardtop is shown. The only detectable variance in the build is the side pipes. They are correct Corvette side pipes added in restoration and can easily be removed and returned to original. Much more information, including a video is available at www.RichPennAuctions.com Corvette VIN 194679S708646. UPDATE INFORMATION: When this car was audited, the starter was found to be an incorrect L88 starter. A correct L88 starter was located and sent off to be rebuilt. When it was returned, installation was halted by stripped threads in one mounting hole. That hole needs too be correctly filled and retapped. There wasn’t time before the auction. The correct starter comes with. The existing starter works well.

1947 Chrysler Town & Country. A car thought to be once

Lot # 165 (Sale Order: 167 of 319)      

1947 Chrysler Town & Country. A car thought to be once owned by Bing Crosby, this fully restored 1947 Chrysler Town and Country was rescued from a life as a service stati...moreon push vehicle by Daryl Hemken in February 1964. Hemken found the car in Boone, Iowa at a service station with a 2 x 12 board wired to the front bumper. It was being used to push cars into the station's service bay, a far cry from the vehicle's beginnings as one of Chrysler's most luxurious offerings of the era. The car ended up in Boone when a gentleman from that city was traveling in California with his family when his car quit. He found the car on a used car lot, loaded his family up and drove it back to Iowa. The story developed that the car had once belonged to Bing Crosby who, along with Red Skelton, had purchased identical cars on the same day. The car was brought back to the Hemken Collection and in 1989 a full restoration was begun in Ohio by an Amish craftsman, completed 12 years later and in the condition seen today. The car was one of Chrysler's top of line cars, unchanged from 1946 when it was reintroduced, sporting white ash with dark mahogany exterior panels, carefully finished in smooth and shiny clear coat. The window handles have the original folding (fobs) knobs and the interior seat upholstery has the original saran inserts. The exterior has the original twin spotlights and the factory luggage rack. This car is ready to travel in style! When the car was restored it participated in the Meadowbrook Hall Invitational Concours d'Elegance in 2001 and is a recipient of the AACA First Junior Award. It was also displayed at the Salisbury House Concours in 2001 and 2004, winning the people's choice award in 2001. For sheer post-war elegance, the Chrysler Town and Country is hard to beat and this example is ready to show and go.

1948 Playboy. Few people have actually seen an example

Lot # 166 (Sale Order: 168 of 319)      

1948 Playboy. Few people have actually seen an example of the 1948 Playboy retractable hardtop convertible because only 97 of the cars were built by the Playboy Motor Com...morepany of Buffalo, NY before its financial bankruptcy in 1951. This example, number 79, has 7500 actual miles, was originally owned by one of the founders of the company and features a 40 hp Hercules engine with overdrive, a very rare combination. The Playboy was the first car to have a multi-part retractable hardtop, coil springs and a unit body. The Hemken Collection is the third owner of the car which was purchased in Tampa, Florida in 2000. It was shown at the Salisbury House Concours in 2010. Only 43 of these cars are believed to have survived according to David Kaplan, a grandson of company founder Lou Horowitz, and considered the authority of his grandfather's cars. Horowitz was a Packard dealer who saw a need for a smaller, cheaper car than what he was selling. Using all outsourced parts, the car was built at a cost around $900 and Horowitz recruited two friends to begin production of the vehicle. Only 97 of the actual cars were built, not including a prototype and an unfinished car, but the group failed to develop a dealer network and was forced into bankruptcy. Under-capitalized, the company simply couldn't compete with the better-financed companies offering much more conventional cars. The three passenger convertible has a 90 inch wheelbase, less than a Rambler American, and is 156" long overall riding on 12-inch diameter wheels and weighing 1900 pounds. The car was priced at $985. Running well and driven in the 2021 Williams, IA July 4th celebration, the Playboy was a real crowd pleaser.

1935 Chevrolet 3-Window Coupe Street Rod. A '35

Lot # 167 (Sale Order: 169 of 319)      

1935 Chevrolet 3-Window Coupe Street Rod. A '35 Chevrolet 3-Window coupe is pretty rare to start out with. This one is a classic "Old School" street rod. It was built t...moreo drive. Starting in 1968, a number of modifications have resulted in a trophy winning, well built, comfortably drivable street rod. These modifications include a rebuilt GM 4.3L V-6 which was matched to a GM 700R4 transmission. Both have only 7,000 miles on them. The '56 Chevy 3.08 Positraction rear end helps with the 25 highway MPG. The Walker radiator w/elect fan prevents overheating. Corvair front suspension with Oldsmobile Cutlass disc brakes and rear axle with coil over shocks (chrome) helps the ride. Creature comforts include a full heating/air conditioning system that works and a tilt wheel with a '58 Impala steering wheel along with power steering and power brakes. At your fingertips are cruise control, electric seats, windows, trunk lid and radio antenna. The late model radio also plays CDs. Car appearance inside and out is excellent.

1952 Daimler DB18. The Daimler DB18 Barker Special

Lot # 168 (Sale Order: 170 of 319)      

1952 Daimler DB18. The Daimler DB18 Barker Special Sports Drophead Coupe' convertible is likely one only a few collectors have seen. Even though the British Daimler Motor...more Company at one time was considered an equal to the Rolls Royce when it came to quality, sound engineering and prestige. This example was donated to the Hemken Collection by Brenda Steigel in memory of her husband Jim Steigel who died of brain cancer in March 2007. In 1985 Jim and Brenda Steigel traveled to Great Britain where Jim found and purchased this Daimler from a used car dealer, paying the equivalent of $5423 for the vehicle before having it shipped to the U.S., Jim was constantly visiting car museums throughout the country and the Hemken Collection was the last museum he visited before his death, so Brenda donated the car for display as a "tribute to him, his life, his dreams and his accomplishments" British Royalty have driven Daimlers since 1910 and lives on today as a marque in association with Jaguar Motor Cars. This non-running example has all the original components intact including the six cylinder 154ci, 85 hp engine, 4-speed transmission, four wheel drum brakes and right hand drive. Mechanically, the Special Sports was enhanced with twin carburetors and an overdrive epicyclic gearbox. Daimler, following World War II, introduced the 2.5 litre Special Sports in 1948. According to reports of the time it was well received and "much sought after for its ability to transport occupants with high speed and comfort.The drophead body by Barker, with its handsome lines, immediately conveyed an image of sportiness. And whilst the famous fluted radiator was distinctly altered, it did not detract from the Daimler marque. Both inside and out, the attention to detail was far above the standard of the day. This is especially apparent when one looks at the ease in which the hood is operated and the clever sideways occasional seating employed. 608 Special Sports' chassis were produced but only about 500 were given the Barker body. The remainder had Hooper coachwork. This example is the final year for the Drophead Coupe and has been repainted with a new top. It is ready to have its engine and drivetrain revived and the car placed back on the road or the show circuit.
