Small Model Cars in the SHRF Collection


The Bill Allsep Collection

Models of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars - the Bill Allsep Collection


Bill Allsep was a member of the Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club of Australia, Victoria Branch, whose affection for Rolls-Royce motor cars and the Club was a huge part of his life. After importing a Silver Shadow from England he also appreciated this model of the marque throughout his time with the Club. His estate, through his wife Jean, became a major benefactor to the SHRF, allowing the Foundation to purchase what became known as ‘Bill Allsep House’ to establish a permanent home for the Foundation’s Archive and activities. As part of her additional support for the SHRF, Jean donated Bill’s collection of Rolls-Royce items and ephemera, including a small collection of model cars, now on display at Bill Allsep House in Melbourne.
