Description

Lot #748 - This darling little Surrey was previously owned by the legendary comedian Red Skelton. Most of us can relate to one of his characters like Freddie the Freeloader or Clem Kadiddlehopper, for in each of his characters was a bit of each of us. Red Skelton's Willys DJ-3A Surrey Gala has just completed a meticulous 10-year, body-off frame, complete nut and bolt restoration. The finished product is beyond stunning. Included with the sale of this Surrey are many pieces of Red Skelton memorabilia, like the Freddie the Freeloader vest used during the Red Skelton Hour on CBS TV during the 1960's, with certificate of authenticity. Red was also quite an artist and included are three Red Skelton prints, the "Girl Clown", "Floral Bouquet" and "Old Glory". There is also a limited edition "Clown with Candy Cane" painting with certificate of authenticity. Also included is a 13-page binder of photographs documenting the entire Surrey restoration. The binder chronicles the life and times of Red Skelton's comedy career. There are many fun stories and photos that invite you into the humorous life of Red Skelton. There are copies of Red Skelton's California titles and a note from Red's widow, Lothian Skelton, describing the Surrey and how much Red loved it. All of this goes with the sale of the Surrey.
