Alan Lewenthal has always had a passion for Automobiles. Alan says that his father always dreampt of owning collectible cars, and early on these aspirations became part of Alan too.
In 2005 Alan purchased the world's most expensive automobile an F-88 Oldsmobile - the only surviving vehicle in the world.
Success in business allowed his father to make his dreams become reality and together they began to acquire a diverse collection of rare vehicles from famous Marques such as Auburn, Buick, Cadillac, and Packard just to name a few. The endless hours of research and restoration paid off with an incredible list of accolades and awards from events across the nation.
Alan offers his knowledge to collectors, and assists them in buying and selling rare and collectible vehicles.
In 2003, Alan became head of acquisitions and curator of the Hendricks Collection on display at The Gateway Colorado Auto Museum.
Realizing the difficulties of restoring and repairing collectible vehicles, he built Marquis Auto Restorations to assist collectors and enthusiasts with the challenge.
