The Greenwich concours has traditionally been held since 1995 in Greenwich Connecticut, just 33 miles outside New York. Greenwich is the wealthiest city in the wealthiest state and the concours has unparalleled access to the best collections in the North East. 2018s concours features special displays of Cunningham cars, Jaguars, MGs and SSs along with a special group of John Fitch cars, supercars and motorcycles. Christies was the auction partner for the concours pre 2006 when Bonhams first hosted a sale in conjunction with the concours and they have returned every year since 2008 with fair success. Within the Bonhams stable this sale has always competed with Goodwood and Quail Lodge so this is somewhere between a regional sale and a true international sale although it always offers interesting cars with charm. Highlights in recent years included the 1938 Bugatti in 2015 and the 1965 Ferrari 275GTB/6C in 2012 and while sell through rates have been respectable over the years, the total gross has been set firmly between $5 and 8 million.

Preview

Proving what I said above incorrect, Bonhams do have a true marquee lot in 2018, one of the finest Aston DB5 Convertibles in existence. 1 of just 39 examples in LHD, this car has had just two owners including the vendor who has owned it since 1971 and while it has a replacement engine, it was fitted by Aston Martin New York in 1971. A very well kept original rather than a restored car it presents like an old shoe and just like a top flight Aston should. Estimated at $2 – 2.6 million, it is worth every cent of the low estimate although the engine replacement should limit its ability to fetch the higher amount. A truly fantastic example of the type.

 

Otherwise the marketing for the sale was centered around offering Carroll Shelbys private collection of automobiles. This is a truly eclectic selection of cars with many from the latter days of his Ford partnership and many more from his partnership with Chrysler. Some of the highlights from ole Carrolls collection are:

  • 1935 Chrysler Airflow. Est. $30 – 40k. A nice pre war car, believed to be ex Steve McQueen and restored. Authenticated and worth it whatever the McQueen connection.
  • 1955 Desoto Firedome. Est. $30 – 40k. A good looking, powerful post war car. Authenticated and not too expensive with the Shelby connection.
  • 1967 Lincoln Continental Convertible. Est. $25 – 30k. A big car in every sense. In great original shape and not too expensive.
  • 1968 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. Est. $80 – 100k. What everyone thinks of when they think Shelby, in immaculate condition and almost guaranteed to sell for much more than this.
  • 1969 Ford Mustang GT500. Est. $80 – 100k. An original big power Shelby Mustang from Shelby’s own collection. Worth more than this and could go huge.
  • 1983 De Tomaso Pantera GTS. Est. $80 – 100k. Just 7,350 miles from new. A little expensive for a De Tomaso but cheap for a Shelby collectible.

Being a concours there is a major pre war focus both on the show field and sale room. Highlights include:

  • 1910 National Series S 50HP Semi Racing type. Est. $125 – 150k. Likely non authentic BUT lots of fun and a rare entry to most events. Worth it.
  • 1910 Panhard-Levassor Type X7 Rothschild Laundalette. Est. $75 – 95k. A giant Edwardian era vintage car. Ideal entry for Pebble or Amelia and good value.
  • 1914 Lozier Model 77 5 Pass Touring car. Est. $300 – 400k. 1 of just 30 surviving Loziers A grand car from an important marque. Priced right.
  • 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Regent Convertible Coupe. Est. $140 – 175k. Lovely Brewster coachwork. Ideal tour car. A lot of car for the money but priced right.
  • 1934 Alvis Speed 20SB Sports Tourer. Est. $180 – 220k. A lovely example of a good British brand with classic coachwork. A little expensive.

Mid century cars abound and some are truly fascinating. Highlights include:

  • 1954 Cunningham C3 Vignale Coupe. Est. $300 – 400k. A fascinating car, originally built as #5232 but renumbered #5440 before sale. Survived in part restored condition for decades. Supposedly all there and well worth restoration. Cunninghams are around the million mark so this could be done with plenty of potential for profit. Cunningham is one of the feature marques at the concours so this could be huge.
  • 1959 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster. Est. $1.1 – 1.3 mil. A complete original Roadster, said to be beautifully presented, perhaps 100 – 200k too much.
  • 1963 Fiat-Abarth Monomille GT Coupe. Est. $150 – 180k. A gorgeous little car begging for closer inspection. Perhaps a touch expensive but a fun toy nonetheless.
  • 1965 Sunbeam Tiger Mark I Custom. Est. $90 – 120k. Restomodded with a 400bhp Tillack built V8 and custom coachwork. A lot of fast fun for most any tour. No real investment value but a lot of car for the money.

Modern exotics are an eclectic bunch, highlights include:

  • 1986 Lamborghini Countach 5000 QV. Est. $280 – 340k. Classic Lambo, ostentatious and then some. Very cool all the same. Market correct.
  • 1998 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster. Est. $200 – 250k. A Rosso Red Lambo Diablo. Will be expensive to run but plenty of fun. Market correct for the miles.
  • 1999 Shelby Series I. Est. $100 – 125k. Authentically ex Carroll Shelby, the first one built and unique spec. Worth it.
  • 2008 Rolls-Royce Phantom DHC. Est. $130 – 160k. Former crash history but a saving of six figure proportions over a new one. Good buying.
  • 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe. Est. $50 – 60k. Exceptional example of the hottest Viper. Lots of fun for the money.

Affordable classics abound. Highlights include:

  • 1959 Fiat-Abarth 750 Record Monza. Est. $30 – 40k. The best and most expensive of three Abarth barnfinds. A great example of the quixotic marque. Requires a total restoration but its largely Fiat based so parts are plentiful. Worth it.
  • 1987 Dodge Shelby Lancer. Est. $5 – 10k. A genuine piece of Shelby folklore, if it can be bought for anywhere near this level, its worth it.
  • 1991 Lotus Espirit Turbo SE. Est. $25 – 35k. 1 of 22 examples. A fun alternative to a Ferrari. Perhaps a touch expensive.
  • 1995 Range Rover Classic 4×4. Est. $40 – 50k. A very cool classic Range Rover. Fully restored and improved. Cost more than this to build.
  • 1997 Shelby Aurora V8 Can AM. Est. $20 – 25k. A unique prototype for a never run Can Am car. Well worth a go for a fun track toy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Greenwich is a huge leap forward for Bonhams in 2018 and I am confident they will have enormous success. Bravo.


Bonhams returned to Greenwich for the 11th time and saw a partial return to the good times with a 90% sell through rate and a record total gross that was 44% up (from 2017) at $10.351 million. This result was achieved off the back of a 37% increase in lots from 90 to 123 and 23 cars from Carroll Shelby’s personal collection, offered without reserve. The star car of the sale was the Aston Martin DB5 Convertible, an example that had been treasured by just one family since 1971 although it had received an OEM engine transplant at around the same time. Said to remain in highly original condition, properly serviced and one of less than 39 with both LHD and 5 speed ZF manual, this DB5 Convertible should have received at least a B- grade price. Comparisons don’t really help with a car like this since most others are either less or more original and few of the recent offers have been anywhere near this well maintained and few of those offered recently have been properly restored ($500k+ plus to restore a DB5). All of that said this car was estimated at $2-2.6 million but fetched just $1.45 million and rather than being sold cheaply, it was more likely an example of a new market reality.

All unique collection sales appeal to audiences where even stellar lots don’t, the confluence of a great story, rare opportunity to buy and frenzied bidding always brings prices that are often bordering on the irrational. This has psychological behaviour has been seen at the Elton John collection selloff, Duemilla Ruote and multiple other sales, with repeat offerings of the exact same car never reaching the heady prices seen despite still being ex whatever made them such hot property. This market theory quirk was evident with the Shelby collection, certainly the De Tomaso Pantera GTS-5 that was offered without a drivetrain sold for $226k or 546% more than its $25 – 35k estimate, the unique Aurora V8 Can Am went for $100,800 or 303% more than its $20 – 25k estimate. The De Tomaso will be a cool car with a story but figure another $50k for a 289 and trans plus fitting and it still wont be matching numbers while the Aurora was super cool but still just a toy fit for track days. Other Shelby cars to sell well were the Mustang GT350 Continuation series built in 1980 which sold for 152% more than its bullish estimate at $202k, the Prototype Series I at $313k (150% over estimate) and three of the Chrysler colabs, the Dakota Prototype, RAM Prototype and the Charger GLS, all at least doubling their estimates.

Other than the Shelby collection, just 12 cars broke their estimate barrier, rare highlights included the 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe at $70k, two of Wayne Carini’s barn find Fiat-Abarths at $22k, a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 GT1 Special Edition at $67k, a 1952 Mercedes-Benz 170SB at $27k and a grand Packard 1101 Convertible Sedan at $162k. The vast majority of lots sold at mid estimate and included the 1910 National Series S 50HP at $148k, 2006 Ford GT Heritage at $412k, 2000 BMW Z8 at $196k, 1986 Ferrari Testarossa at $123k, 1958 Jaguar XK150 3.4 Roadster at $102k, 1963 Fiat-Abarth Monomille GT Coupe at $151k and 1954 Cunningham C3 Vignale Coupe at $313k. The last known would be worth double or even triple the amount when restored but that might be $400 – 500k away so it was a brave purchase indeed.

The largest quotient of lots (48) were those sold below estimate and they included the 1907 Thomas-Detroit at $62k (51% below estimate), 1970 Triumph Spitfire Mark III at $10k (-50%), Citroen 2CV at $9k (-41%), Lincoln Continental Mark III at $8k (-35%) and Lotus Esprit Turbo SE at $17k (-33%). Other than the star Aston Martin a few of the higher priced autos sold cheaply including the 1959 Mercedes-Benz 300sl Roadster at $895k (-19%), 1980 Ferrari 512BB at $213k (-5%), 1963 Maserati Sebring at $211k (-6%) and Rolls-Royce Phantom DHC at $112k (-14%). That said Bonhams worked very hard to ensure a minimum of no sales with a large quantity of lots at no reserve and plenty of negotiating between vendors and bidders. Only three of the no sales stood out, two Lamborghini’s, a Diablo Roadster and Countach Coupe at $150k and 220k respectively and a Lozier at $210k. Bonhams will be extremely happy with the results from Greenwich going from strength to strength.

The Carfax also shows that in 2009 at 33,585 miles, the transmission was rebuilt, and the clutch was replaced. The car received another service in 2015, and was most recently treated to an oil and filter change in 2016.

224 1954 Cunningham C3 Vignale Coupe 5440 $300,000 $400,00/$313,000 €268,232 Mid

Two tone Blue over Beige. Originally numbered #5232, renumbered by the works as #5440, William C. Rands Jr., MI/FL (1), Howard Girardin (2), repainted, Chrysler 300 engine and Chev transmission fitted, unknown, believed to have gone to RI and CT before discovery with Mr. Frederick, NJ, finally to a junkyard in Queens, New York. Discovered by George Anita. When found, the car was described as being in rather rough shape, with the windshield, engine, and transmission missing. Anita installed another Chrysler V8 in the car along with TorqueFlite transmission before swapping it to Ali Lugo of Connecticut for another C-3, a Convertible s/n 5441, in the early 1970s. It wasn’t a complete swap, however, as Anita kept some items from the car including the left instrument cluster and the brass serial number plaque. Lugo took his new car and transferred the dash and remaining instruments and knobs to Stu Barnette—then owner of C-3 s/n 5229—before advertising the car in The New York Times in July of 1977 for $2500. Larry Tory, also of New York spotted the listing and purchased the car from Lugo. At the time, 5440 was finished in cream over brown trim and the body was said to be badly dented and rusted. Tory stripped and repainted the chassis before listing it in early 1980 Road & Track and then in the March 1980 issue of Hemmings Motor News from which it was sold to Dean Dietrich of Hinsdale, Illinois. Dietrich was intent on restoring the car, sending it to a shop in Iowa not long after purchase. The restoration would be stillborn, however, as the car would sit basically as it had been purchased for a score of years before being discovered and acquired in 2000 by Daniel Rapley of Connecticut. From Rapley the C-3 went to Derrick Durst and in 2001 was purchased by the current owner. Still in rough shape and incomplete, another attempt at restoration began, this time more in earnest. Using information gleaned from fellow Cunningham owners to reconstruct the damaged bodywork, especially at the tail, Obermeyer’s 41 Auto Body in Allenton, Wisconsin began to bring the Cunningham back up to snuff. The entire frame was separated from the car and rotisserie restored. Parts that could not be fabricated were sourced separately, including a new windscreen to replace the broken one on the car and a rebuilt correct-type 331 cubic inch Chrysler Hemi V8 to go in place of the later motor fitted in the car. Further hard-to-find Cunningham pieces were taken from Cunningham chassis number 5236, a late production example that had never been bodied. From s/n 5236 came the Chrysler semi-automatic transmission, the four Zenith carburetors and the unique Cunningham manifold onto which those carburetors were mounted. Beyond the damaged bodywork, some trim pieces had gone missing. Those that could not be located, such as the chrome pieces around the hood and grill as well as the dashboard, were fabricated by International Restoration in Oaklawn, Illinois. Beyond the metalwork and trim, the car also received mechanical work that has made it a running and driving car—although it has rarely been run as the interior is still in rough, incomplete shape. Unsalvageable as it sits, the remains of the interior could provide a good rubric for patterns. Once the bodywork was completed, the car was painted in the two-tone white and navy blue it wears today. Alas, as has often in the car’s past, other projects have kept its restoration sidelined. Recently completed work includes a new set of correct wheels, hub caps and tires, the rebuilding of one of the carburetors, an engine tune-up, and service to the transmission and brakes. With the current owner’s restoration work now stretching over nearly two decades, some receipts are included but not every record can be found, in addition to a selection of photos both before and during the restoration.
