When salvage yard owner Oliver Jordan of Enid, OK got in a little tiff concerning a zoning issue over 60 years ago his resolution was simple… Put a padlock on the gate and tell the world to piss off, and so for 61 years only a select few individuals had ever seen his collection of over 220 vintage cars and trucks… until now.
Oliver and his wife have both passed away and their grandson says it’s time to liquidate. He’s been consolidating the 200+ cars that had once been scattered across four different fields, and the cars he’s been discovering along the way are nothing short of spectacular.
Auction house VanDerBrink outlines some of the rarest cars of the collection: a 1937 aluminum Lincoln 7 passenger sedan believed to be Willoughby Body considered to be one of 5 remaining of the 60 produced, a 1917 Maxwell, the oldest car in the collection, a 1924 Rollins Touring, and a 1937 supercharged 812 Cord.
