From the Leroy Hunter Collection

Leroy Hunter was a farm boy, working the same fields his family had worked since the early 1900s and that his sons continue to work today. When he and his wife took it over in May 1947, he set to work making it into an efficient agricultural endeavor, winning awards for innovation in soil conservation, forest preservation, herd maintenance,and more. This passion for life translated into his love of classic automobiles, and both his sense of adventure and his dedication to quality are present in the vehicles he maintained. Mr. Hunter was well respected by his community, peers and was a loving supporter of the Owls Head Transportation Museum. Now is your opportunity to own one of the classic pieces from the eclectic and all-American Hunter Collection.
