The Principality of Monaco is auctioning off part of a collection of automobiles started by Prince Rainier III that includes a number of interesting American models running the gamut from sports cars to military vehicles.

This 1973 Camaro is a rare export edition powered by a 4.1-liter six-cylinder engine, and is expected to go for the not so princely sum of just $15,000.

1924 Ford Model T Torpedo

Certainly one of the only pickup trucks in the world that has a royal pedigree, the fold-down rear seat on this Model T is suitable for carrying heads of state or heads of lettuce.
