A Civil War-era building soon will be housing a classic car museum in Hannibal.

The Hannibal Courier-Post reports that work is underway to transform the former American Woodworking shop into the museum that'll hold the vintage collection Steve and Jacklyn Karlock have amassed over four decades.

The Karlocks now live in California but are planning to move to Hannibal.

The future home of the car collection was built in 1860 and for years served as the site of Hannibal Produce.

It's not immediately clear how soon the planned museum will open.
