Thomas H. Larsen Collection of Iconic Classics, Without Reserve at Gooding & Co

Pebble Beach Auctions - From the Thomas H. Larsen Collection

The Thomas H. Larsen Collection consists of carefully chosen, exceptional examples of some of the world’s most iconic classic cars. The late Tom Larsen was known and loved by the Boston car collecting community, and was a major supporter of the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline. Mr. Larsen assembled this collection over many years, and had his fleet of vehicles maintained by some of the East Coast’s foremost specialists. He and his wife Nancy were active participants in many classic car tours and rallies, including the Colorado Grand and the Copperstate 1000. 

 

“The range and quality of this collection is quite impressive, and speaks to Mr. Larsen’s dedication, meticulous attention, and passion,” said Dykman. “I knew Tom quite well and really enjoyed spending time with him over the years, so this collection is particularly close to my heart.”
