seal cove – A very special Ford is set to bid at auction to benefit Friends of Acadia.
The Seal Cove Auto Museum invites the public to the Sixth Cars and Coffee Assembly of 2022 on Saturday, August 13 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Acadia’s development director Lisa Horsch will be on hand until 11:30 p.m. to talk about the Clark, and pretend, 1941 Ford Super Deluxe convertible that will go to the organization’s 33rd annual fundraising auction that evening at the Estiqueau Inn in Northeast Harbor. I am ready to bid.
The museum will welcome all kinds of specialty Ford automobiles, vintages and varieties, as well as motorcycles, cycles, tractors and other means of transportation, to the event. These Cars & Coffee events are family friendly and welcome everyone, with or without a special automobile.
Admission to the museum and featured exhibitions is free during the event. Free light refreshments include coffee, locally cooked donuts, fruit, and juice.
Ethan Yankura, executive director of the Seal Cove Auto Museum, and Bill Barter, the collection’s curator, will discuss the history of the Ford automobile, focusing on the collection at Seal Cove, which includes the rare “letter cars” produced during the Ford Motor Company’s early days.
“Ford Day allows us to showcase the formidable collection of Ford automobiles here at Seal Cove, an opportunity to showcase such a large part of the collection, while discussing the history of the automobile as we know it. Fantastic. We look forward to welcoming a huge crowd and some exciting guest automobiles,” said Yankura.

Located at 1414 Tremont Road in Seal Cove, the museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from May 1 to October 31.
