The No Reserve Charlie Thomas Collection

RM Auctions is honored to present the Charlie Thomas Collection on October 20, 2012 at the spectacular Gaylord Texan Resort near Dallas.

Featuring 175 automobiles without reserve, the collection is the product of two decades of careful and dedicated acquisition by prominent Texas businessman, life-long auto enthusiast and former owner of the Houston Rockets basketball team, Charlie Thomas. The collection spans the spectrum of the collector car market from early flatheads to ’50s convertibles and ’60s muscle and sports cars. Among highlights are a magnificent series of more than 80 Fords, including multiple Shelbys, and more than 40 Chevrolets, joined by numerous examples from other celebrated American marques, including Cadillac, Chrysler, Packard and Oldsmobile, to name just a few. Mr. Thomas has taken great pride in regularly exercising these cars to ensure they run and drive beautifully, and all the lots are offered without reserve, providing an exciting range of ownership opportunities for savvy collectors.

Additionally, all of the proceeds from the sale of the collection’s 1952 Willys Military Jeep will benefit the Brookwood Community in Brookshire, Texas.

  1. Ray Bowersox is my father and this is one of his prized cars. He has a genuine passion for restoring and caring for classic cars, and always took immaculate care of them.

    Ray drove my husband and I in this car after our wedding. This is just one of the special memories we have from his collection of cars.
