Pakistan’s first online antique cars museum launched at the Quaid-e-Azam House Museum in Karachi. Shoaib Qureshy, a classic car enthusiast and collector and the founder of this antique car museum said, “Antique Cars is Pakistan’s first online museum and it showcases the very best antique cars in our country.”

The online antique cars museum to feature 100 antique cars

Pakistan’s first online antique cars museum featured 80 cars with the oldest one being a 100-year-old 1922 Amilcar C4 from Islamabad and the youngest one being a 35 years old 1987 BMW 2-door coupe from Karachi. However, in the future, the ‘’ website will display a maximum of only 100 antique cars in order to maintain quality over quantity.

Shoaib Qureshy said; “We often do classic car shows to share our hobby and our beautiful cars with the general public but we wanted a single platform for this purpose where most of our cars could be showcased. This is the first Pakistan online museum for antique cars where we can show the best of these cars is not just to our country but also to the world.”

The online museum featured globally rare, iconic, and valuable antique cars, that includes; the 1930 Cadillac V16, 1926 Renault, 1930 Packard, 1935 Chevrolet Master, 1949 Lincoln Continental V12, 1954 Austin Healey, 1958 Corvette, 1961 Mercedes 190 SL, 1963 Porsche 356, 1966 Aston Martin DB6, the 1966 Amphicar, and it also includes two cars owned by Miss Fatima Jinnah: the 1955 Series 62 Convertible Cadillac and the 1965 Mercedes Benz 200.

Views of Pakistan’s antique cars collector

Liaquat Malik, a classic car collector, who was present at the event with his 1961 ivory white Mercedes 190 SL and his cheerful bright yellow 1951 MG TD, said; “It is the time of social media, therefore such a museum was the need of the hour. We will showcase before the world our car heritage.” Mansoor-ul-Islam, known for recreating classic cars with his own hands, was present with his ivory 1938 Rolls Royce Wraith. He was also of the view that such a museum is a brilliant idea.

Karim Chhapra, the owner of the 1924 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost that was also used by Quaid e Azam, said; “We the collectors of these cars had even been promised land for the purpose of having a classic cars museum in Karachi, which never happened. So since we don’t have the land, we can at least have an online museum.”
