THE world's most comprehensive collection of Peter Brock's race cars, road cars and memorabilia is for sale.

The collection includes several Bathurst-winning Holdens, examples of Brock's Holden Dealer Team Commodores and the Shelby Daytona replica Brock fatally crashed in 2006.

Peter Champion, a lifetime Brock fan, spent decades gathering more than 40 genuine cars and replicas before opening a museum in Yeppoon, in Queensland.

Champion's Brock Experience was open to the public from December 2007 to February 2011. 

The cars remain at the museum in Yeppoon, where prospective buyers can take a look at them.

Mr Champion says the collection is "an Aussie treasure trove", but that a heart-attack and ongoing business interests prompted him to sell it.

Collectors have already approached the owner who would prefer to sell his cars as one lot, but is open to selling them individually.

"I can't focus on the collection anymore," Mr Champion said. 

"The collection needs ongoing care and I just can't give it. 

"I also need the space in my shed."

Champion's HDT vehicle and accessories business will not be affected by the sale.

The collection will be open to the public for one final weekend in June.

"We really would love to give them the opportunity to come and have one last look," he said.

Call 1300 798 405 during office hours.
