In October, the Court of Cassation authorised the sale of the collection. The following year, the Association du Musée National de l'Automobile acquired it for 44 million francs. This fixed-rate settlement was contested by the Schlumpf brothers, who won their case twenty years later and were awarded an additional 25 million francs. The Association du Musée National de l'Automobile comprised the city of Mulhouse, the Haut-Rhin Département, the Alsace Region, the Mulhouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Automobile Club de France, the Société Panhard, and the Comité du Salon de l'Automobile.
