Pennsylvania philanthropist John Rich opened his collection after retirement so people of all ages could experience the wonders of automotive history.
Some of the notable vehicles related to the development and ever evolving progression of the automobile include the Ford Model T and A, the Ford Mustangs and Thunderbirds, and the Flathead V8 Ford cars produced throughout the 1930s and 40s. Bugatti, Ferrari, Jaguar, MG and Morgan capture the essence of historically important sports cars. Vehicles representing the posh Classic era are such names as Packard, Rolls-Royce, Lincoln, Mercedes and Bentley. Unique, rare, and one of a kind vehicles, some with past owners just as special, are also displayed. Among these is a 1915 Simplex, which had claim to being the most expensive vehicle in America at that time, with a custom roadster body built for department store tycoon John Wanamaker. All in all, the collection has something to offer for any car enthusiast.
The collection is private, and not open to the public on a regular basis. We do, however, open on occasions for certain groups, clubs, and charitable events. The collection does exhibit the vehicles at over a dozen charitable events throughout the year. Please contact us for further information.
