Some of the historic vehicles include a 1942 Willys Jeep, a 1961-67 B40 military motorcycle and a 1954 Holden FJ sedan.

The auction also includes a Flightcraft Phantom speed boat, rare tractors and machinery, and auto memorabilia such as fuel pumps, traffic lights and advertising signs.

The Queensland Auto Museum announced in April that it had "regrettably" been forced to close down.

The auction is currently running online at lloydsonline.com.au and at the auto museum on Saturday, September 24 from 2pm.

Potential buyers can view the collection on September 17, 18 and 23 from 9am - 4pm.
