Recognize this dynamic duo from the reality series Antiques Roadshow? The reigning brotherly twosome of antiques dealers and automobile aficionados, twins Leigh and Leslie Keno, will soon bring an array of antique collectible automobiles to the online Proxibid Marketplace.

Think no one will buy a car online, where you can’t kick the tires? Well, Proxibid, a prominent online destination for the sale of high-ticket collectibles, will team up exclusively with the Keno Brothers in a venture dedicated to exceptional classic cars. Proxibid also conducts sales of art, collectibles, and real estate. Founded in 2001, the company boasts buyers in over 190 countries. In 2012 alone, $2.1 billion in inventory was handled in their virtual marketplace.

Keno Brothers will direct all of its sales to the company, which has offices in Omaha, Nebraska, and the English city of Essex.

Proxibid is auctioning off three pretty affordable classics: a 1969 Ford Mustang and two 1963 Chevrolet Impalas, each for under $20,000. Expect higher prices for a bevy of Aston Martins, Maseratis and Rolls Royces, which will come online later.

While waiting for these Keno lots to go on sale, maybe sit back and ponder the brothers’ uncanny resemblance to New York art dealing magnate David Zwirner?
