Mecum Monterey

Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa – Del Monte Golf Course
1 Old Golf Course Road Monterey, CA 93940

Mecum have proven to be very consistent with their Monterey sale despite moving from offering classics to being focused on modern collectibles. They return to Monterey for the tenth time and as with the last few years offer 500+ American collector cars, a few proper classics and large numbers of every super and hyper car on the market. The early years saw the finest examples of Ferrari 250GT Tour de France (the highest placed Ferrari at Le Mans ’59), Porsche 917/10 (the 1972 CanAm winner), Shelby Cobra Daytona (the Championship winning car) and the Miller Special that won Indy in the 1930s. More recently these cars have been replaced with a seemingly inexhaustible selection of limited edition hyper cars although there selling prices make the change negligent. The biggest change has been the increase to 500+ lots over 3 days and the increases in revenue accordingly which means that while the total gross looks similar to Bonhams, it takes 250 – 300% more cars to equal their Quail Lodge competitors.

Pre war cars are a bit of a backwater in this sale but there are some that would be highlights anywhere:

  • 1910 Locomobile Model 40 Type I Demi-Tonneau – Est. $450 – 550k. A truly grand Edwardian car, fitted with the top of the line 40HP engine on a 123 inch wheelbase, later discovered by Walter McCarthy, restored in ’04 and shown at Pebble. Looks magnificent and well worth the estimate.
  • 1929 Duesenberg Model J Murphy Convertible Berline – Est. $1 – 1.25 mil. A rather sedate Duesy, restored 30 years ago, now lovely patina. Market pricing
  • 1930 Duesenberg Model J Torpedo Phaeton Rep. – Est. $1 – 1.2 mil. Looks gorgeous, non original coachwork built by Fran Roxas when restored in ’00s, used in many movies over five decades. Little collector value but a beautiful example. Seems $300 – 400k to expensive for a non original Duesy.
  • 1933 Duesenberg Model J Bohmann & Schwartz Disappearing Top Roadster – Est. $3.25 – 3.5 mil. 1 of 6 fitted with beautiful Bohman & Schwartz coachwork. Much like their Murphy neighbours, commissioned by and owner by two Hollywood celebrities. Very rare and stylish, documented and authentic. Either market correct or very nearly so.
  • 1936 Ford Jack Colori Coupe – Est. $350 – 450k. Calori/ Reneau Custom/hotrod. Built ’48 and covered in ’50 edition of Hot Rod magazine, restored more recently and quite fabulous. Hard to value but likely market correct.
  • 1936 Auburn 852SC Boattail Speedster – Est. $850k – 1 mil. A beautiful example of the iconic Auburn. 1 of 147 examples. Restored and ready for any use. Market correct.
  • 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Cabriolet B – Est. $650 – 750k. A full classic Mercedes. Matching numbers. Market correct price.

Mid century cars are a strong point for Mecum

  • 1948 Ford Super Deluxe Marmon-Herrington Wagon – Est. $250 – 325k. A fabulous woody with a rare Marmon-Herrington four wheel drive system. Original and highly stylish car. Restored recently and few miles since. Market correct estimate.
  • 1954 Chrisman Bonneville – Est. $500 – 700k. Radical Belly tank/ Ford based race car, hugely successful drag racer. Market correct.
  • 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing – Est. $1.3 – 1.4 mil. Fire engine Red over Tan. A 2+ price so entirely condition dependent.
  • 1958 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Saloon Coupe – Est. $700 – 800k. A fabulously rare Rolls, 1 of 2 examples. Beautiful car and ideal for any concours, market correct.
  • 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster – Est. $900k – $1.2 mil. Fire engine Red over Saddle. Nice example. Priced for 2-3 quality, needs to be confirmed otherwise too expensive.
  • 1958 Porsche 550A – Est. $4.5 – 5 mil. Ex. Ernst Vogel, restored to perfection, authentic engine fitted. Fully priced so the authenticity and provenance needs to be absolutely confirmed. Likely to be worth a million less than this, especially if any holes are found in either the mechanical authenticity or provenance.
  • 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I DHC – Est. $550 – 650k. A nice Cream example. 1 of 12 examples. RROC award winner. Market correct price.
  • 1964 Sunbeam Tiger GT Convertible – Estimate unknown. 1 of just 15 to this spec. Worth roughly $130k. Lovely car.
  • 1965 Shelby Cobra 289 – Est. $1.1 – 1.3 mil. A rare example in good but not restored condition. Seems at least $200k expensive.
  • 1965 Ferrari 275GTB Long nose – Est. $1.9 – 2.2 mil. A nice example owned by Gordon Raymond for 47 years, crashed badly in ’81. Restored to perfection since but with such history likely not worth a market price and this seems market priced. I would be surprised to see any more than low estimate.
  • 1967 Ferrari 275GTB/4 – Est. $3 – 3.1 mil. Grey over Saddle. A lovely example, owned by Ferrari mechanic Terry Myr since ’70. Very well maintained and just 15,000km from new. If all checks out, well priced.
  • 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Coupe – Est. $400 – 500k. Polar White over Red. 1 of 80 examples. Cosmetically prepared. Period correct. Market priced.
  • 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible – Est. $550 – 650k. Can Am White over Saddle. 1 of 116 examples. Gorgeous, powerful car. One of the ultimate muscle cars. Market correct.
  • 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S – Est. $1.3 – 1.6 mil. 2nd P400S made. Lovely car, original and as such likely requires a $300 – 400k restoration so likely value at around $1.1 – 1.2 mil. but costly above that.
  • 1973 Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona – Est. $625 – 700k. Very well maintained original other than an older repaint. Priced above its standing by about $100k so potential value at $550 but even the low estimate seems too far. Lovely car though.
  • 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight – Est. $1.3 – 1.5 mil. Lovely car in Tangerine, gorgeous as it is and no doubt authentic and so on but easily $400 – 500k too much. A low ball bid would be worthwhile.
  • 1974 Ferrari 246GTS – Est. $450 – 550k. A beautiful look in metallic Purple. Restored and worth this. Market priced. 

 

Modern collectibles are were Mecum Monterey excels and even so its a fabulous selection with something for every newly minted collector. Highlights are:

  • 1989 Porsche 962 – Est. $2 – 2.5 mil. Gold Miller livery. Chapman built honeycomb tub. Won Daytona 24 Hours in ’89. Gorgeous example in great colours and with absolute authenticity and provenance. Market correct price.
  • 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S – Est. $1.1 – 1.2 mil. 1 of 17. Black over Tan, seems expensive but likely market correct.
  • 1995 Ferrari F50 – Est. $3.7 – 4.2 mil. Even though the market has been hot for these, this is $500k too expensive.
  • 2003 Ferrari Enzo – Est. $2.9 – 3.1 mil. A beautiful, low mileage example. Market correct price.
  • 2008 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 – Est. $1 – 1.4 mil. Gorgeous in Gold and Beige over Taupe. Good example but likely $100 – 200k too expensive.
  • 2008 Lamborghini Reventon – Est. $1.7 – 2 mil. Yes there was only 20 Reventon but they are just a Murcielargo with a bodykit. As such this is both expensive and maybe $300 – 400k too expensive compared to the market average.
  • 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP650-4 Roadster – Est. $340 – 380k,. A gorgeous example, 1 of just 50 made. Looks very loud like a Lambo should be. Close to market if not absolutely correct.
  • 2010 Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir – Est. $1.7 – 1.8 mil. One of just 12 Sang Noirs, market correct for a Special Ed. Veyron.
  • 2012 Dallara DW12 Honda Indycar – Est. $1.175 – 1.25 mil. The Dallara that won the 100th running of the Indy 500. No realistic use possible other than display in a museum. Expensive as an automobile, possibly market correct as a collectible.
  • 2012 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport – Est. $1.7 – 1.8 mil. 1 of just 11 US market Grand Sports. Market correct price.
  • 2014 Pagani Huayra – Est. $2.5 – 2.7 mil. Beautiful car but Huayra’ are a $2 – 2.4 mil. market. so at least $300k too expensive.
  • 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari – Est. $3 – 3.3 mil. Low mileage example in typical colours. Market correct price.
  • 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale – Est. $375 – 450k. Great looker in Silver over Red. Excellent, like new example. Value at the low estimate.
  • 2015 McLaren P1 – Est. $1.7 – 1.8 mil. Charcoal over Grey. $114k in options and like new. Low estimate is market correct.
  • 2015 Porsche 918 Spider – Est. $1.8 – 2 mil. Black over Black. My fave of the hybrid hypercars but perhaps $200 – 300k too expensive for market correct.
  • 2015 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster – Est. $2 – 2.2 mil. Excellent example of the ultimate spec open top Veyron. Like new and market correct.
  • 2015 Ferrari LaFerrari – Est. $3.25 – 3.5 mil. Interesting car in Yellow. Like new. Perhaps $250k over market correct.
  • 2016 Porsche 911/991R – Est. $375 – 400k. These were nearly a mil on release. $60k of options and a great colours scheme. Market correct price.
  • 2017 Ferrari California T 70th Anniversary Ed. – Est. $275 – 300k. A bog standard California T with a fancy paint scheme. Lots of collector value but only to the right collector, otherwise silly expensive.
  • 2017 Ferrari F12TDf – Est. $1 – 1.25 mil. Red over Black. Epic fast Ferrari with 770bhp. A good collectible for sure and potentially market correct but note a new 812 Superfast is better, faster and roughly $700k cheaper. Both expensive and correct at the same time.
  • 2017 Ferrari F12TDf – Est. $1.1 – 1.2 mil. Silver. Like new and fitted with $100k in options. As with the above.
  • 2017 Ford GT – Est. $1.7 – 1.9 mil. Silver over Black. Amazing car but the last one to sell caused a lawsuit from Ford Inc. Just 250 built and could well be worth this much, time will tell.
  • 2017 Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 – Est. $2.75 – 3 mil. Black over Black. 1 of just 20 examples, unique in this colourscheme. Seems at least a million over market but then the Reventon is still $1.5 million so what do I know.
  • 2018 McLaren 720S Luxury Launch Edition – Est. $350 – 375k. 1 of 400 examples of this special edition. A beautiful car and likely the only way to get one straight away.
  • The SRT Demon Offering – Est. $250 – 275k. Two cars on offer from the 3300 built. Both in Tor Red, 830bhp, 2.3 second 0 – 60mph. Both as new. Immense potential for future value growth.

Affordable collectibles abound at this sale. Highlights are:

  • 1961 Volkswagen Beetle – Est. $30 – 40k. Three genuine Herbies, all believed used in the movies. Would be worthwhile for any collector, especially a Porsche fan.
  • 1966 Ford Bronco U13 Roadster – Est. $35 – 45k. 1 of 4,090 examples, Beautifully restored and a good alternative to a Toyota FJ-40. Reasonable enough price.
  • 2005 Dodge RAM SRT-10 Yellow Fever Edition – Est. $40 – 60k. 1 of just 200 examples in this spec, 500hp engine and loud in Solar Yellow. Probably $5k too expensive.
  • 1948 Packard Series 22 Woody – Est. $50 – 75k. A nice look in Green over Tan. Highly usable and market priced.
  • 1956 Lancia Appia Furgoncino Series II – Est. $55 – 65k. Gorgeous little truck. Just 1090cc so pretty slow but ideal Italian collection support vehicle. Market correct price.
  • 2000 Chevrolet Camaro Racecar – Est. $55 – 85k. A cool American Grand Touring racecar, ran Daytona in ’00. Market priced.
  • 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster – Est. $75 – 95k.  1 of 300 in Pennant Blue, very cool if relatively vintage and quite slow. Market correct price.
  • 1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible – Est. $75 – 85k. Gorgeous Maroon car, beautiful condition. Market correct price.
  • 1956 Packard Caribbean Convertible – Est. $90 – 120k. Shows well, perhaps $20 – 30k above market price.
  • 1954 Buick Skylark Convertible – Est. $125 – 150k. Beautiful in Black over Red. Restored and a great look. An important model. Market correct price.
  • 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series – Est. $150 – 175k. An extreme supercar although slightly shaded by more modern Mercedes. Ideal example and market pricing.
  • 2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia – Est. $165 – 200k. Black over Black. A limited edition Scud. Lots of fun and fast enough for anyone. Great potential for future collector value..
  • 1937 Lincoln Model K Panel Brougham – Est. $200 – 250k. Restored to perfection 30 years ago. Now a glamorous 1930s art deco classic. Roughly $50k above market.
  • 1967 Ghia 450SS Convertible – Est. $200 – 225k. A gorgeous example of this rare Italo-American hybrid. Up to $100k above market but perhaps market forward.
  • 1957 Kurtis Kraft 500G Bardahl Special – Est. $200 – 250k. Gorgeous Black Indy car, 11th at Indy ’57, Restored by Phil Riley, no mention of history between ’57 and restoration so that should be confirmed because it could be one of those rebuilt from nothing. If largely rebuilt from original parts this is cheap, if mainly a replica, then it is expensive. Worth checking out and could be the buy of the sale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RESULTS

Mecum returned to Monterey in 2018 and offered another 600 odd cars, roughly the same mix of classics, modern supercars, muscle cars and used cars although this time they managed to sell $44.2 million worth compared to the $34.6 million in 2017. The 1933 Duesenberg was a fantastic example, not an SSJ but still well worth the high estimate and then some and fetched $3.85 million (fully 10% above estimate), a worthy high sale indeed. Other good sales included a 2014 LaFerrari at $3.19 mil., a 2003 Enzo at $2.86 mil, the ’89 Daytona 24 Hour winning Porsche 962C finally selling at $2.2 million and the 1969 Lamborghini Miura 400S at $1.155 mil.

Several cars surprised with bids that were impressive indeed, the 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle 300 Wagon fetching $143k (120% over estimate), 1964 Volkswagen Beetle $93k (134% over estimate), 1966 Ford Bronco U13 Roadster $110k (145% over) and the 1961 Volkswagen Beetle $107k (168% over). Several cars also sold well below their estimates, most of them offered at no estimate, none less than the 1981 Porsche 911 Targa offered at $45 – 60k and sold for just $16k, ouch. Perhaps the worst example of ouch was the 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort which had apparently come loose while being transported and hit a tree causing extensive damage and rather than the usual $1 – 1.5 mil. estimate, this car hit a $467k mid estimate sale although it will forever be the 959 with serious crash damage history, OUCH.

The one thing that stops Mecum from competing with your Goodings and RMs is the sheer number of no sales, especially those at reasonable offers. The four Bugatti Veyrons failed at $950k – 2 million, the Ferrari F12Tdf at 1.1 mil., 275s at $2.8 and 3.2 mil., LaFerrari at $3.2 mil., F50 at $3 mil., the first 2017 Ford GT at $1.6 mil., Lambo Reventon at $1.5 mil., Centenario at $2.25 mil., McLaren P1 at $1.7 mil., Pagani Huayra at $2.2 mil. and the Porsche 550A at $2 mil. All but the Porsche were reasonable bids and make me wonder whether there were even real bids since they were bang on the low estimate yet didnt sell. The Porsche bid makes me question the car since every other 550 sells for $4 – 5 mil. and the others might be chalked up to something entirely different. That said Mecum should be happy with their third place in the Monterey picking order, a not too shabby place to be.

F7 1958 Pontiac Bonneville K558H1303 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Silver. Showing a mere 22,000 original miles, this 1958 Pontiac Bonneville two-door hardtop is a very attractive example of the car that daring GM Executive Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen conceived to pull Pontiac Division out of its postwar downward sales spiral. The Division had sunk to sixth in industry sales when Knudsen assumed control with talented young engineers E.M. “Pete” Estes and John Z. DeLorean at his side. By then, Pontiac’s former management had rolled out a caravan of dreamy show cars in efforts to improve its public image, debuting a fresh generation of cars with new chassis, new bodies and an impressive new pushrod V-8 engine. These resulted in a slight increase in sales, but Knudsen wanted more, and he fulfilled that desire with the limited-production 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible, the flashiest, most sophisticated and powerful Pontiac the world had ever seen. It featured practically every optional extra as standard equipment, most importantly the Rochester fuel-injected V-8. The Bonneville returned in 1958 on the all-new GM cruciform frame with legendary GM Design Chief Harley Earl’s last styling treatment before his retirement. Available now in both hardtop and convertible form, the 1958 Bonneville offered similarly lavish appointments and improved performance with new Tri-Power carburetion that raised the 370 CI V-8’s output to 300 HP. Many of the previous Bonneville’s standard features were moved to the option list, but most 1958 models were fully appointed by their buyers, including the remarkable 1958 Bonneville offered here. Equipped with the 370/300 HP Tri-Power V-8 and a Hydra-Matic transmission, it is finished in Persian Black with a contrasting silver interior featuring a split-bench front seat, tinted glass, pushbutton radio with power antenna and power windows. Power steering, power brakes and wide whitewall tires with full-size wheel covers complete this rare and very sharp 1958 Bonneville.
F8 1966 Ford Bronco U13 Roadster U13FL788842 $35,000.00 $45,000.00 N/R $110,000 €95,000 145% Green over Silver. One of 4,090 produced in 1966, this Ford U13 Bronco originally shipped to Drew Ford in La Mesa, California, is among the rarest of Ford’s sport-utility vehicles and one of the most difficult to restore given the many parts that were exclusive to the 1966 models. Its list of one-year-only items extends to such things as the horn ring, chromed bumpers, wheel covers, silver upholstery, dash knobs, master cylinder and tailgate. Nonetheless, this Bronco was given a frame-off nut-and-bolt restoration completed in 2018 that has returned it to virtually as-new factory condition today. Jim Lunsford, a skilled craftsman at the highly regarded Blackhawk Museum in Danville, California, performed the body and paint work on the Bronco, recreating the original combination of Holly Green with a white grille insert. The finished work is sensational, even including the proper red-oxide paint on the undercarriage and differential. A solid example documented with receipts, photos and California black plates, the Bronco retained many of the hard-to-find pieces and features the original 170/105 HP inline-6 engine, which was rebuilt as part of the comprehensive restoration and is combined with a 3-speed manual transmission, 2-speed transfer case and a 4.11 final drive. The engine compartment shows careful attention to the same correct detailing and finishes as found throughout the rest of this outstanding restoration. Authentic pieces include the car’s Autolite electrical system, oil-bath air cleaner and reproduction cables, belts, hoses and script clamps. The interior is a study in authenticity that includes a padded dash, correct combination of speedometer with fuel, oil-pressure and alternator gauges, correct silver bench-seat cover, driver’s-side mirror and fold-down windshield. Completed with selector locking hubs, painted steel wheels with full-size wheel covers and BF Goodrich All-Terrain Radial T/A tires, this expertly restored 1966 Ford Bronco will appeal to the preservation-minded enthusiast seeking the best example of its kind.
F9 1950 Jaguar Mark V DHC Z12215 $40,000.00 $50,000.00 $60,500 €52,250 21% Light Yellow over Red leather. Introduced to the motoring press on September 30, 1948, and unveiled to the public on October 27 at the London Motor Show, the Jaguar Mark V was the final iteration of the original “SS class” of Jaguars, differentiated from the retroactively named 1946-48 Mark IV by its 3.5L inline-6 pushrod engine that displaced a full liter more than the Mark IV. Although the Jaguar factory plunged into war production in September 1939 and remained in that service until late 1945, plans were first laid and some work was completed in 1944 for a new postwar Jaguar line based on a lightweight new unibody design incorporating 4-wheel independent suspension, anticipating the 2.4L saloon of 1956 and the later E-Type, Mark Ten and S-Type. The Mark V has long been acknowledged as a transitional model, combining as it did its rather old-fashioned but sporty styling and single-overhead-cam engine with independent front suspension, stamped-steel wheels and hydraulic brakes. The torsion-bar front suspension was of particular interest as the first such system in a mass-production automobile to employ ball joints, which soon became the industry standard. Equipped with dual SU side-draft carburetors and mated to a floor-shifted 4-speed manual transmission, the 3.5L Mark V engine produced 125 HP and 180 lb-ft of peak torque, enough to achieve a top speed of 90 MPH. The Mark V may have been overshadowed by the exciting new XK120 that debuted by its side at the 1948 London show, but it proved to be the bread-and-butter vehicle Jaguar and Britain both needed in the wake of the war’s devastation. Its styling recalled the original and still-popular SS100, and its smoothly contoured chromed grille was at its attractive best with the optional “leaping cat” mascot decorating this handsome Drop Head Coupe built on June 30, 1950. Refinished in light yellow and fitted inside with dark red leather and beautiful burled-wood trim, it is stylishly dressed in full chrome trim, fog lamps, wide whitewalls and fender skirts.Introduced to the motoring press on September 30, 1948, and unveiled to the public on October 27 at the London Motor Show, the Jaguar Mark V was the final iteration of the original “SS class” of Jaguars, differentiated from the retroactively named 1946-48 Mark IV by its 3.5L inline-6 pushrod engine that displaced a full liter more than the Mark IV.

F10 2004 Cadillac XLR 1G6YV34A545603434 $40,000.00 $50,000.00 $30,800 €26,600 -23% Satin Nickel over Ebony leather. The all-new 2004 Cadillac XLR evolved from the 1999 Evoq concept. The first XLR was built in the spring of 2003 on a dedicated assembly line at General Motors’ assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Replete with a dynamic design, advanced technology and unique blend of luxury and performance, the XLR brought a striking new entry to the international luxury-roadster class. GM underscored its vibrant visual statement with a performance-oriented chassis and an all-new 4.6L/320 HP DOHC 32-valve Northstar VVT (variable valve timing) V-8. The rear-wheel-drive XLR was the lightest, most powerful vehicle in its class. Under its skin, the XLR offered a blend of technologies and materials that added pleasure, not complexity, to the driving experience, with innovations like a heads-up display, adaptive cruise control, Magnetic Ride Control, StabiliTrak, heated and cooled seats, keyless access with pushbutton start and DVD navigation and entertainment. The XLR was an expression of Cadillac’s landmark design and advanced technology heritage inspired by the stealth fighter jet. This Satin Nickle XLR has traveled just 2,900 miles since being sold new by Cadillac of Menlo Park, California. Built on the Corvette platform, it features an automatic transmission, power retractable hardtop, 4-wheel independent suspension system, 4-wheel disc brakes, heated and cooled leather seats, Eucalyptus-wood steering wheel, shifter, console and door handle trim, dual-zone air conditioning and polished aluminum wheels. The XLR was the first GM vehicle to feature radar-based adaptive cruise control. The 2004 XLR retailed for $76,200 and offered driver shift control, performance algorithm shifting and performance algorithm liftfoot. Another advantage was the rear mounting of the transmission, giving the XLR a virtual 50/50 front-to-rear weight distribution for superior balance, and a roomy footwell as well. Cadillac built only 4,387 XLRs in 2004, only 630 of which rolled out of the factory cloaked in Satin Nickel, just like this exquisite example.
F11 1979 Volkswagen Beetle Super Convertible 1592017777 $45,000.00 $55,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Lemon Yellow over Tan leather. After 29 years, millions of Beetles and countless improvements, the 1979 Convertible is still a very sensible way to flip your lid,” said a flier for the ‘79 Volkswagen Super Beetle Cabriolet. Safety guidelines that outlawed convertibles were expected, but delayed, allowing the Beetle to put in a last curtain call before it left the stage. For its last hurrah, the Beetle was marketed with every feature an earlier Champagne Edition had included as standard equipment. This resulted in a very un-Beetle-like $6,495 price. Super Beetles had a 94.5-inch wheelbase, 164.6-inch length, 53.9-inch width, 59.1-inch height and 2,059-pound weight. Up front was a strut independent suspension with coil springs. The rear suspension featured swing axles with trailing arms and torsion bars. Braking was by front and rear drums, and 12-volt electrics and rack-and-pinion steering were included. Power came from a 1584cc 48 HP horizontally-opposed, overhead-valve, air-cooled 4-cylinder with electronic fuel injection. It had a light alloy block and head, as well as finned cylinders with cast-iron liners. A synchronized 4-speed manual transmission handled shifting chores, and the final drive unit had spiral bevel gears. Thinking the ‘79 Super Beetle would be the “last convertible,” buyers ordered them in large numbers and the Karmann factory wound up with back orders that kept the production line going until January 1980. The last car was a white cabriolet with a white interior and top built January 10, 1980; today, it resides in the Karmann museum. This example is an unrestored car from a private Volkswagen museum collection that’s traveled 858 believed-original miles. Finished in rare code-A1D Lemon Yellow, the car is equipped with climate control, the radio-delete option and an optional VDO clock. This recently serviced VW has its original tires (including the spare) and date-stamped wheels. It comes with original books and manuals, an original dealer folder, its original maintenance book and delivery stamp, and its factory jack and tool kit.
F13 1969 Ford Mustang Resto Mod 9F01F127791 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 $36,300 €31,350 -9% Two tone Blue over Grey. Old-school and modern performance collide in this modified 1969 Mustang hardtop. With its lowered stance and two-tone blue and gray paint, the classic coupe maintains its Mustang heritage but takes on a Street Rod attitude with 17-inch wheels, cowl-scooped hood, discreet ducktail rear spoiler, tasteful pinstriping and center-exiting dual exhaust tips. Nestled within the color-keyed gray engine compartment is a 351 CI Ford powerplant with high-performance cylinder heads, roller camshaft, aluminum intake and MSD ignition. Underhood eye-candy appeal is enhanced by polished aluminum serpentine pulleys, open-element air cleaner, Ford Racing valve covers, blue engine bay bracing and billet hood hinges. A high-performance hydraulic clutch system sends the 351’s power through a 5-speed manual transmission and Ford 9-inch rear end that’s supported by a custom 4-link rear suspension. The 17-inch tires are BF Goodrich G-Force with the rears measuring a wide 315/25/17. Oversize sway bars and polygraphite bushings for all suspension components help keep the Mustang flat in the turns, while Wilwood disc brakes at all four wheels aid the stopping capabilities. The gray interior is a work of art with modern leather seats, custom 6-pod gauge panel, unique console with cup holders and an aluminum Flaming River steering wheel with D-shape grip. Tying the interior theme together is carbon-fiber trim on the upper seat backs, console, dash pad, lower dash and door panels. The gray and carbon-fiber interior look carries over into a trunk that features matching carpet and upholstery-covered panels for a finished look, including the cover for the trunk-mounted battery. While most modified Mustangs are based on the fastback, this one stands apart as a notchback coupe with the 1969 model’s aggressive four-headlight front end, muscular Coke-bottle rear quarter panels and side-scoop ornamentation. It all comes together in a nice package that certainly looks ready for the mean streets.
F14 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle 300 Wagon 45415L117934 $45,000.00 $65,000.00 $143,000 €123,499 120% Blue over Blue. With this matching numbers, body-off restored 1964 Chevelle 300 two-door Station Wagon comes extensive documentation and a rich history. Young parents special ordered this V-8, 4-speed Chevelle from Clippinger Chevrolet in Covina, California, in late 1963. Though they sold the car in 1973, their son located it in 1984 and has owned it since. Rare by any standard, Chevrolet made 2,710 Chevelle two-door station wagons in 1964; of those, 1,101 were equipped with a V-8. Special to the Chevelle are elegant styling cues carried over from the Nomad, such as forward-raking B pillars and horizontally sliding side windows As indicated on the original purchase order, this Chevelle left the factory with 13 options: 283/220 HP V-8, 4-speed transmission, air conditioning, tinted glass, luggage carrier, power steering, tilt steering wheel, padded dash, pushbutton radio, comfort and convenience group, special suspension, whitewall tires and Malibu wheel covers. Today, so many Chevelle two-door station wagons are modified, making this stock-restored, high-optioned example rare among the rare. Following a refinishing in correct Daytona Blue lacquer by Specialty Car in Phoenix, Arizona, respected Z16 and NCSR Corvette restorer Chris Daniels of San Jose, California, performed the restoration. During the process, the frame was powder coated, NOS parts were used throughout and special attention was paid to correctly replating original “RBW” bolts, clips, screws and other detail items. The transmission case, tail shaft and other parts were re-aluminized, the driveshaft was restored and spring tags and inspection markings were applied to suspension parts. Attesting to the quality of the restoration, this wagon won Platinum ‘64 to ‘67 original restored, People’s Choice and Editor’s Choice at a national points-judged Chevelle show. A solid 1960s new-car feel is strongly communicated via NOS door handles, weather stripping, seat cloth, parking brake lever, shifter control and hood latch and hinges. Deviations from stock are a mild cam and 3.55 gears. The original purchase order, dealership repair receipts from 1964-73, restoration receipts from 1985-97, copies of vintage photographs and clips from vintage home movies of the car on DVD are included.
F15 1996 Dodge Viper RT/10 1B3BR65E6TV100361 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Black leather. Only 166 RT/10 Roadsters were produced in red in 1996, and it’s estimated that only 25 Viper RT/10 Roadsters were produced with the Mustard-colored 5-spoke wheels, making this example a fabulously rare snake indeed. Adding to that, only about 700 Viper Roadsters were produced in 1996, the lowest number since 1992, when just about 285 were built. This one has only traveled 6,176 miles from new. Under the hood is the famed and fabled 8.0L/415 HP V-10 engine with sequential-port fuel injection and a 6-speed manual transmission. The power steering, 4-wheel power disc brakes, air conditioning, AM/FM cassette stereo system, leather interior and removable hardtop gave customers several amenities to stave off the overall brutish nature Vipers quickly became known for. Initially, Chrysler wanted to produce a car that was reminiscent of the original Shelby Cobra: an open-top, lightweight vehicle with huge amounts of power that could rocket to ludicrous speeds in the blink of an eye. Chrysler accomplished its goal, shocking both the public and the press in a good way, although many were a little turned away by the raw nature Viper delivered. This one features a black interior with a contrasting red steering wheel, shift knob and parking-brake handle. The 1996 model year has long been of interest to enthusiasts for a number of reasons, not the least of which being the lower number of cars produced, but also because the 1996 Vipers received about 200 new components over the first generation, making them a kind of Series 1.5 as they retained much of the original’s style, but offered more. The engine was refined with reprogrammed computer systems and upgraded exhaust work, a hardtop was available, about 200 pounds were dropped, chassis rigidity was improved and braking was enhanced, among other things. The 1996 model year hinted at great things to come from Viper, and finding one in exemplary condition, particularly equipped with rare colors, is quite a find.
F16 1996 Dodge Viper RT/10 1B3BR65EXTV100427 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 $41,800 €36,100 Mid Black over Black leather. Black beauty with a venomous attitude is one way to describe this 1996 Viper RT/10. The revolutionary Dodge sports car that struck the enthusiast marketplace after its concept debut in 1989, the ’96 model year heralded the first changeovers from the initially developed version of this American-built supercar. Indeed, this transitional model has led some to deem it the 1.5 model based on those changes, and the 1996 version later paced the Indianapolis 500 in GTS form. Delivered new to Bob Koller Dodge in Naperville, Illinois, this RT/10 is one of 231 produced in black for 1996, and it presently displays just 4,242 original miles since being built. Thanks to changes in the exhaust design, the 8.0L V-10 engine, with its Lamborghini-engineered aluminum block based on Chrysler’s LA-series engine, jumped to 415 HP that year. The engine features sequential-port fuel injection and is backed by a 6-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. Under the pigment is composite body panels with reinforced skin, keeping the curb weight below 3,500 pounds. That shape covers a tubular space frame with center spine construction, and handling is ably assisted by both power steering and 4-wheel power disc brakes. Once inside, one finds a black leather interior with high-back seats, pod-design gauging, short-throw shifter, deluxe audio equipment and air conditioning. The overall look of this car is accented with silver stripes that match the beautiful 5-spoke 17-inch aluminum wheels. This touch is all that breaks up the overall blackout treatment this car displays, down to the emblems in relief, black sidewall tires and matched black hardtop, a part of the car’s design which allows for removable windows. Unfortunately, the Viper has now joined other storied vehicles, recently accelerating off into the pages of automotive history. This example, with its excellent conditioning and special color combination, represents that heritage in any setting.
F17 1998 Dodge Viper GTS 1B3ER69E8WV400057 $40,000.00 $50,000.00 $35,200 €30,400 -12% Red and Black over Black leather. The second-generation Dodge Viper forged the visceral power of the first generation with performance-engineered powertrain, suspension and interior refinements. With 18,570 original miles and subtle yet effective aftermarket modifications, this 1998 Dodge Viper GTS Coupe improves on the factory formula. The GTS coupe is outfitted with a Venom-style front fascia and finished in a two-tone black double-bubble roof over a red body-color scheme. Enlarged front NACA duct and K&N dual-snorkel carbon-fiber boxed cold-air intake extract plenty of atmosphere for 8.0L V-10 combustion fury. Sequential-port fuel injection, a revised camshaft and lighter exhaust manifolds work together to send 450 HP at 5,200 RPM and 490 lb-ft of torque at 3,700 RPM through the 6-speed manual transmission and limited-slip anti-spin differential. Independent suspension features coil springs and aluminum A-arms, rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel disc brakes to help tame the Viper bite. The stronger and stiffer coupe made its debut in 1996 and was developed with an eye on both the Dodge Viper racing future and as an intentional homage to the Shelby American Cobra Daytona competition coupes of the past. Center-exit exhaust improved flow and went far to prevent scalded legs from side-exit exhaust. Bolstered black perforated leather sport bucket seats envelop the driver and passenger with air conditioning, power windows and an Alpine CD stereo for a newfound measure of touring comfort and convenience to the Viper driving experience. A stitched leather steering wheel, shifter and parking-brake handle wait for a new driver to guide the original Viper 5-spoke alloy wheels and UHP-compound tires over the road or track. The Viper GTS coupe could grab 60 MPH in 4.1 seconds, dispatch the quarter mile in just more than 12 seconds and thunder to a top speed of more than 185 MPH. Few other vehicles on the road are as raw and untamed as a Viper, and the GTS might just be the wildest ride of all.
F18 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible E57S105090 $110,000.00 $140,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Venetian Red and Beige over Red leather. In 2015, this rare 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible was the recipient of the Antique Automobile Club of America’s Senior National First Prize Award. The 1957 edition arrived in the wake of Corvette’s first official speed-record runs at Daytona Beach, an international racing victory and a class win at the Sebring 12 Hours that legitimized it as a true high-performance sports car and vindicated Zora Arkus-Duntov’s unwavering dedication to its development. Arkus-Duntov kept his foot on the gas for 1957, adding a 4-speed manual transmission and Rochester Ram Jet fuel injection to the option list. Those two additions were developed in anticipation of the larger 283 CI V-8 engine also offered as standard equipment. Naturally, the increased displacement was accompanied by higher horsepower ratings, going from 210 HP in the base 1956 V-8 to 220 HP in 1957. Two versions of the Rochester fuel-injected engine were offered, one using a hydraulic cam and 9.5:1 compression for 250 HP, and one combining the “Duntov” solid-lifter cam with 11.0:1 compression that enabled Chevrolet to trumpet “a milestone in American automotive history—one horsepower for every cubic inch.” At $484.20, the 250 HP “Fuelie” option was an expensive proposition, but for road use, it was the preferred choice as the more tractable of the two. Like the Rochester fuel-injection system, the 4-speed manual transmission was a late production addition. Although manufactured for Chevrolet by BorgWarner, it was in fact designed by Chevy engineers, who adapted it from the BorgWarner 3-speed by moving the reverse gear into the tail shaft and adding an extra cog in its former place. This AACA Senior Award winner combines the 283/250 HP V-8 fuel-injected engine with the optional 4-speed and a 4.11:1 Positraction rear end. A purposeful example with radio-delete, it presents in iconic Venetian Red with beige coves and a matching red interior, and it features an auxiliary hardtop and full-size spinner wheel covers over wide whitewall tires.
F19 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa WP0EB0915KS160250 $65,000.00 $90,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grand Prix White over Black leather. Few automotive experiences are as sublime as a pleasure drive in an open-air classic Porsche. This 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa is a sublime choice for enjoying that quality time. With a mere 21,880 original miles and optioned with a slew of factory equipment—such as air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, power seats, sport shock absorbers, cruise control and a Blaupunkt Monterey radio with the additional rear speakers—this Targa checks all the right boxes. The 1989 model year was the last for the G-Series 911 produced from 1974-1989. The 1989 models were the beneficiary of all the evolutionary improvements made to this fabulous air-cooled wonder, and history has proven it to be legendary in terms of performance, reliability and desirability. Its 3.2L flat-6 engine is the naturally aspirated version of the same unit used on the 930 Turbo. Known as the Mezger engine, this engine block is a performance icon. The G50 transmission was first introduced into the 911 lineup mid-year 1986, and it’s regarded as Porsche’s finest 5-speed gearbox of all-time. One of just 860 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Targa models built in 1989 for the American market, this car presents beautifully in the classic color combination of Grand Prix White with a black leather interior. The exterior is further defined by its black anodized roll hoop and trim, correct Fuchs forged-aluminum wheels with color-keyed centers and polished lips, factory-fitted rear whale-tail spoiler and front chin spoiler. The featured 911 Carrera Targa comes equipped with its correct tool roll and spare-tire air inflator. This car has it all; it’s the right year, the right model, has the right options, has the right color combination and is a low-mileage example in beautiful condition.
F22 1956 Packard Caribbean Convertible 5699-1271 $90,000.00 $120,000.00 $95,700 €82,650 Mid Dover White over White and Red. They were advertised as “the greatest Packards of them all.” To some collectors, the 1956 models made in Detroit were the last “real” Packards. Styling changes included a redesigned grille with a mesh-type insert and a gridwork of vertical and horizontal chrome bars, and the bumper guards were wider apart and directly under the headlights. The limited-edition Caribbean was now a separate Packard sub-series having two models with special styling and engineering. General changes from 1955 Caribbeans were minimal; the deeper hooded headlight look was used, the rear edge of the parking lamps was rounded, and the gold Caribbean script in the grille insert was of slightly wider squares so that several divisions were eliminated both horizontally and vertically. A new air scoop bumper with the center cutout revealing a portion of the grille was also used. New three-tone color combinations were offered, such as maroon, light blue and ivory white. A hardtop priced at $5,495 was a new addition to the line, while the convertible, such as the example offered here, cost $5,995. Only 539 Caribbeans were built and 276 were convertibles. Use of a dual 4-barrel induction system was continued with the 374/310 HP Caribbean V-8. Caribbeans had reversible seat cushions that could be unsnapped and repositioned. This rare Flamingo Red, Dover White and Charcoal Gray Caribbean has a white and red interior and shows off its body-on restoration well. The dual 4-barrel engine is attached to an Ultramatic transmission with pushbutton shift controls and drives power to a 3.31:1 ratio Twin-Traction rear end. It also features a whole host of options: a self-leveling suspension; power steering; Easomatic power brakes; fender skirts; power windows, seat and convertible top; tinted glass; reverse and trunk lights; windshield washers; a glare-proof rearview mirror; chrome-plated wire-spoke wheels; and wide white sidewall tires.

F23 1950 Volkswagen Beetle 10199673 $48,000.00 $65,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Pasel Green over Tan cloth. With nearly 70 years and millions of Beetles down the road, it seems difficult to imagine Volkswagen sold exactly two cars in the United States in 1949—yes, that’s right, two cars. Things moved into the triple digits for 1950 when this Pastel Green Beetle with tan cloth interior was delivered new to the Hoffman Motor Car Company in New York. Racer, European car importer and the man behind the Porsche 356 Speedster, Max Hoffman was the sole American Volkswagen distributor from 1950-53 and as such, these exceedingly rare early U.S.-market Beetles are known as Hoffman VWs. This early example of the imported car that would drive on to become part of American cultural history underwent a restoration in the 1980s and shows just more than 62,000 miles on its odometer. The Beetle was one of approximately 300 sold by Hoffman for 1950 and comes with its official Volkswagen birth certificate. The Beetle is propelled by an 1100cc air-cooled flat-4 engine good for 25 HP with a single Solex downdraft carburetor and dual-pipe muffler. Four-wheel independent torsion bar and trailing arm suspension worked with new-for-1950 hydraulic brakes that were a considerable improvement over the 1949 mechanical setup. The original 6-volt electrical system was retained. The body features the two-piece rear window that lent the early Beetle its split-window name. Volkswagen called this top-trim model the DeLuxe with Sunshine Roof thanks to its tan rag-top sunroof, and the interior is upholstered in reproduction fabric with matching door panels and rear-seat bolster pillows. Dual glove compartments center the MPH-calibrated speedometer and the batwing steering wheel waits to guide 16-inch color-keyed steel wheels and original-specification Avon bias-ply tires over the road. Semaphore turn indicators let other drivers know which way you’re going with classic early Volkswagen Beetle style.
F24 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 124379N617310 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 $73,700 €63,650 -8% Garnet Red and Black over Black. When it comes to the most desirable Camaro to add to a comprehensive collection of Chevrolet’s muscle, the 1969 Camaro Z28 is No. 1 on almost every Bowtie enthusiast’s list. This genuine code-X77 Z28, built in March 1969 and restored in its original Garnet Red hue, stands proudly on top. Its iron-clad documentation includes its broadcast sheet verifying its provenance. It is one of 20,302 Z28s built in 1969. This is a very highly optioned example of Chevrolet’s signature first-generation Camaro. It starts with the drivetrain that forms the heart and soul of every Z28, the DZ 302/290 HP engine breathing through the ZL2 cowl-induction system with the factory-correct cross-flow dual-exhaust system (NC8) that retains the factory-installed A.I.R. smog components. This powerhouse gets the power to the pavement with a Muncie M21 4-speed transmission and a 12-bolt Positraction rear end stuffed with a 3.73:1 final drive ratio. The options included on this car include power front disc brakes, power steering, the wood-grain steering wheel, an 8,000 RPM tachometer, console with gauge package, Soft Ray-tinted glass all around, rear-window defroster and the correct standard black vinyl interior trim. The rolling stock are factory-issue 15×7-inch Rally wheels with Firestone Wide Oval tires. The intimidating stance is enhanced with the front and rear bumper guards and spoilers on a car that has benefited from a comprehensive ground-up restoration. For the 1969 model year, the Camaro’s sheet metal received subtle tweaks that distinguish it from the previous 1967 and 1968 models. After Mark Donahue won the 1968 Trans Am championship, vanquishing the factory-backed Ford Mustang teams, the Z28 offered race-car performance in a (barely) street-legal package that made its owner the envy of other muscle-car and pony car-drivers. With the Corvette, the Z28 Camaro gave Chevrolet an unbeatable one-two punch for 1969.
F25 1930 Ford Model A Hi-Boy Roadster A36167193 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Red. With the outside appearance of something being driven directly from a 1950s movie set, this beautifully executed 1930 steel-body Model A Ford Roadster is much more than meets the eye. Riding on a 117-inch wheelbase, this car is attractively raked with a period-design exhaust layout, the desirable rumble seat and modestly chosen chrome work. From there, however, the similarities veer toward the 21st century, with changes that were carefully done under the guise of historical presentation. Ahead of the firewall is a 355 CI V-8 engine which has been retrofitted with an electronic fuel-injection system, custom-engineered from four hollowed-out Rochester carburetors, each now hosting a fuel injector. This is controlled by an Alltech onboard computer, with the engine backed by a Turbo 350 Hydra-Matic automatic transmission and an 8.8-inch differential housing featuring a set of 3.73 gears. Of course, the classic Hot Rod stance this car achieves is far from Henry Ford’s original “better ideas” from 1930, and this roadster uses a Super Bell dropped I-beam front axle, Posies low Super Slide springs and a unique 4-bar rear suspension with split wishbones, tubular triangulated bars and Aldan coilover shocks. The stop equals the go, as the car is equipped with Wilwood front disc brakes and Mustang rear disc brakes, both controlled with a Corvette master cylinder. The combination of black with the bright red interior is again a flashback to the glory days of early Rodding, but inside are Stewart-Warner gauges, a SoCal Speed Shop steering wheel and a 1.5-inch roll bar, coupled to upgrades such as a third brake light and the Sony CD stereo with mini-disc changer. The rumble and roar is completed with red-painted steel wheels and gorgeous wide whitewall tires. With an exterior that looks like pure vintage California speed and upgrades that will make it easy to drive and maintain, this Hi-Boy roadster is indeed the best of both worlds.
F26 1999 Bentley Arnage SCBLB51E2XCX02511 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 $39,600 €34,200 -1% Black over Black. The Bentley brand has always delivered stately elegance combined with smooth power delivery and impeccable road manners. This beautiful 1999 Bentley Arnage has less than 6,000 original miles and presents in splendid condition. The interior appointments are exactly what is expected in a Bentley: premium-grade black Connolly leather front and rear seating with deviating red piping and matching Wilton wool carpeting, contrasted with end-matched burled-walnut fitments on the dashboard, door panels, center console and rear picnic tables. The rich black exterior is equally impressive, accented with discreet chrome trim and 17-inch chrome wheels. The car comes well equipped with creature-comfort amenities such as dual-zone air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors, power seats and a premium audio system. First introduced in 1998, the new-generation Bentley Arnage was a radical departure from its predecessor, the Bentley Brooklands Turbo R. Now under German ownership, the bodies were assembled per tradition in Crewe, England. However, the engines were no longer made in-house but instead sourced from BMW. A new 4.4L V-8 replaced the outgoing large-displacement 6.75L V-8. Although smaller in displacement, the new 4.4L engine featured twin turbochargers, dual overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder and an advanced Bosch engine-management technology. Engineered and tuned by Cosworth, it produced 350 HP and produced a healthy 420 lb-ft of torque enabling the 5,000-pound Bentley to motor with ease. Also new to the Arnage was the introduction of the 5-speed automatic transmission, enhancing the acceleration and cruising capability of this luxurious car. The Arnage also features power-assisted 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes. Many Bentley enthusiasts consider the 1999 Arnage as a milestone achievement, a car that seamlessly merges and combines German engineering with traditional British time-honored coachwork construction.
F27 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider ZARBA5411F1023916 $25,000.00 $30,000.00 $19,800 €17,100 -20% Rosso over Crema. This 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider Graduate is an impressively preserved 19,000-mile car with only one previous owner. A first-year model, the 1985 Graduate represented the third iteration of the iconic Alfa Romeo Spider in a simpler, more “pure” package. Allegedly inspired by the 1967 film “The Graduate,” starring Dustin Hoffman, this namesake car is actually quite a step up from Hoffman’s Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider driven in the movie, having benefited from two decades of technological advancements since the movie car’s creation. Even with those unseen upgrades lurking beneath its sheet metal, classic good looks still abound on this Monza Red Spider Graduate. The classic twin-pod gauge cluster, chrome outside mirrors and other early features that would be phased out in 1986 combine here with Bosch electronic fuel injection and engine management, variable cam timing and other mechanical advances that together create a classically styled but easy-to-enjoy collector-grade car. Equipped with a 2.0L DOHC all-aluminum inline 4-cylinder engine and 5-speed transmission, this car was sold new in Greensboro, North Carolina, on July 5, 1985, and was recently treated to a professional service including new top-line Michelin tires and an alignment, machined brake rotors, repacked wheel bearings, brake and clutch hydraulic flushing, general tuning and a complete replacement of all fluids. This car has led a pampered life thus far and features an immaculate original body, engine compartment, interior and simply stunning chassis, all adding to its virtually as-new appearance. It also retains a plethora of original documentation, as one would expect from a meticulously cared-for low-mile car. Items to accompany its sale include the original window sticker, Alfa Romeo Pre-Delivery Inspection form, North Carolina DMV Inspection Receipt, odometer mileage statement, transport receipt and even the receipt from the original check used to purchase the car in 1985. Rarely does a third-generation Alfa Spider surface in this state of time-capsule condition, making this incredible example worthy of close inspection and serious consideration.
F28 1929 Thomas Special Sprint Car A2272546 $25,000.00 $40,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black single seat racer. Early Sprint Cars—or Big Cars as they were known back in the day—are always a fun find. A fine representation of the homespun nature of this era is this 1929 Thomas Special Sprint Car No. 8. Powered by a Ford Model A 4-cylinder engine, this machine sports a manual transmission, leaf-spring rear suspension, 4-wheel drum brakes with a hand brake and hand-pump oil lubrication. Finished in a shimmering black paint contrasted by red-painted wire wheels shod in Firestone bias-ply tires, the Thomas Special sports a distinctive look. The exposed dual Stromberg carburetors, Thomas high-compression aluminum head, Thomas aluminum intake manifold and polished open-header exhaust running along the right side of this black beauty simply look way too cool. On the inside the wood-rimmed steering wheel conveys a feeling of quality, while instrumentation such as a large tachometer dominates the center dash and gauges for voltage, oil pressure and water temperature serve as important aids to the driver who sits in the dark-hued cockpit. The Model A racing engines came about due to the ingenuity of racers on a budget, the kinds of folks who couldn’t afford a purebred Miller or Offenhauser that cost significantly more than the affordable Ford powerplant. The Big Cars were intended to bridge the gap between the popular Midget race cars that raced at fairground tracks throughout the country and the Indianapolis 500 cars. As the formula evolved it became more popular with crowds, beginning to really increase throughout the 1930s. The future heroes of American motorsports cut their teeth on these types of machines, and as horsepower increased, they proved to be some of the most lethal racing cars ever produced. It took a special type of talent to tame these wild beasts, a legacy that lives to modern days. This Thomas Special Sprint Car is a celebration of a bygone era, a time when dreamers with a modest budget could go race against the big boys with a chance for success.
F29 1981 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser FJ40-926334 $75,000.00 $85,000.00 $44,000 €38,000 -41% Brown and White over Grey. The metric odometer of this 1981 Toyota FJ-40 Land Cruiser reads 37,000 kilometers, or about 23,000 miles, and it’s believed to be original. Having undergone a partial restoration, the legendary 4×4 presents very originally, like it just rolled off the dealer lot with the gray-painted steel wheels with front locking hubs and a brown body with white top. It even has the “Toyota”-branded conical rubber stoppers affixed to the bumpers, a pushbutton AM ToCars radio and a few other astonishing surprises. Powered by the venerable 4.2L 2F inline 6-cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission, a glance under the hood says a lot about this particular FJ-40, but peeking around every corner of this truck is breathtaking. Riding on Dobinsons shock absorbers and front and rear leaf springs, the Land Cruiser stops sure footedly with power brakes and Firestone Super Traction ND tires. Inside, it’s 1981 all over again with strikingly upholstered seats and door panels, textured plastic surfaces, painted steel surfaces, an immaculate 3-spoke steering wheel, excellent switchgear and a fabulous instrument cluster. Equipped with front-bumper tow hooks, it’s easy to get out of a jam, or help someone else out. The Land Cruiser brand has been Toyota’s longest-running model, a vehicle that has earned respect all over the world as one of the best off-road vehicles the planet has ever seen. From the deserts to the jungles to the mountains and flatlands, there is little an FJ-40 can’t handle. Born to serve during wartime efforts, Toyota continually developed the Land Cruiser through the years for the commercial, agricultural and private markets, creating one of those iconic products that has served the world in so many ways, it’s difficult to count. Finding an FJ-40 in such an original state is something of a treasure, lending a peek at the earlier days of off-road vehicles.
F30 1979 Ferrari 308GTS 28683 $65,000.00 $85,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso corsa over Nero leather. A pristine specimen that has been driven 32,298 miles since new, this 1979 Ferrari 308 GTS is an ideal candidate for the collector seeking a well-maintained example of an all-time Ferrari classic. Mechanically, the 308 GTB and GTS were based on the 308 GT4 introduced at the 1973 Paris Auto Show, but the GT4’s sharp-edged Bertone design was an abrupt departure from the Ferrari tradition of smooth, flowing lines and graceful forms highlighted by subtle detailing. The 308 GTB and GTS marked a return to that tradition with superb Pininfarina styling that England’s “Motor” magazine called “the best to come out of Pininfarina in a long time.” It was significant from a historical standpoint as the first non-12-cylinder Ferrari to wear the company’s famous nameplate, as well as the first production Ferrari with a fiberglass body. In early 1977, Ferrari made the change to steel body panels, and in September of that year, it introduced the targa-topped GTS with a removable roof panel. One of only 3,219 produced from its 1977 debut through 1980, this 1979 308 GTS marks the final year of production for the carbureted model, which has come to be regarded by many enthusiasts as the “purest” of the 308 series. Powered by the transversely mounted 3.0L double-overhead-cam V-8 rated at 225 HP and backed by a 5-speed manual transaxle/differential, this beautiful 1979 GTS was professionally repainted in the correct Rosso Corsa finish. It is beautifully complemented by the very clean black leather interior, which was skillfully reupholstered and trimmed with red Daytona-style seat inserts. The cockpit is classic Ferrari in every detail, incorporating a tightly grouped instrument cluster shaded from glare behind the padded Prancing Horse steering wheel, the famed gated shifter that falls readily to hand, power windows and air conditioning. This very attractive Ferrari 308 GTS comes equipped with genuine Cromodora 5-spoke alloy wheels and the all-important books and tool roll.

F31 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubble Top 11637L116302 $60,000.00 $85,000.00 N/R $44,000 €38,000 -27% Silver over Red. This 1961 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubble Top has benefited from a recent frame-on restoration and has covered just 200 miles since completion. Finished in a Sateen Silver lower body that contrasts nicely with an Ermine White roof, it provides a stunning combination that is only enhanced through the addition of 17-inch Cragar SS wheels. The Bel Air is powered by a 1963-spec 409/425 HP V-8 engine that has been upgraded with an Edelbrock intake, dual Holley 4-barrel carburetors and an MSD 6A ignition, backed up with a 4-speed transmission. Underneath you will find that the frame has been powder coated for beauty and durability. In the 1950s and 1960s, the American market was dominated by General Motors, holding a market share of more than 50 percent, and Chevrolet was the country’s best-selling brand. The importance of the full-size category cannot be overstated, as Chevrolet offered two different pillar-less hardtop models for 1959 and 1960: one with a wraparound rear window, the other featuring a thin, graceful C-pillar. This second style, over the years, gained the name “Bubble Top.” For the 1961 model year, the full-size Chevrolets were extensively restyled. Gone were the fins of the 1959-1960 models, replaced with neatly tailored styling that has aged gracefully over the years. The result was a mass-market car that looked far more upmarket than its modest price. Cars from this era were not known for their stopping prowess, but this particular Bel Air is up to modern standards with the installation of 4-wheel power disc brakes. Power steering makes it much easier to maneuver while 2-inch drop spindles gives this Bel Air a powerful stance. On the inside, the interior has been restored to a very high standard with red cloth and vinyl trim. Up front you’ll find a split-bench seat instead of bucket seats often found on the two-door hardtop models. A final touch for this sweet ride is a period-correct, steering column-mounted 1961 Sun Tach.
F32 2010 Aston Martin Rapide SCFHDDAJXAAF00642 $90,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Jet Black over Obisidian leather. Having covered a mere 9,610 miles from new, this 2010 Aston Martin Rapide is one of only a handful built before the Rapide S replaced it in 2013. A ZF Touchtronic II 6-speed automatic transmission harnesses the 470 HP produced by the 6.0L V-12 and delivers it to the rear wheels with the expected swiftness and efficiency of a supercar, but with the decided smoothness of an Aston Martin. Presented in Jet Black with an interior swathed in Obsidian leather, only the stitching contrasts—even the interior trim is Piano Black and the suede-like alcantara headliner is black. The dark demeanor lends a truly businesslike sense to an already serious sporting car, but it also allows for the details to shine through. With power steering, a sport-tuned adaptive suspension, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, Bilstein shocks and double-wishbone front and rear suspension, the Rapide handles the horsepower effortlessly and makes the most of curves and corners with ease. With a tilt and telescopic steering column, 10-way power-adjustable seats with memory and oodles of other amenities, this Aston Martin Rapide is certain to bring a great deal of pleasure to every mile. Once in a while, a company produces a car that’s remarkably inimitable, something truly special, usually some kind of roadster or ultra-sports car, but in the case of Aston Martin, in 2010, the 4-door Rapide hit the scene. Bearing an obvious family resemblance, it broke tradition with four doors, bringing Aston Martin head-to-head in the super-saloon market with a multitude of ultra-performance sedans. It held its own very well, offering top speeds nearing 190 MPH, sprints from 0-60 MPH in the high 4-second range, and a rare blend of muscular and svelte, graceful and athletic. “Top Gear” compared it to a number of super saloons and considered the Rapide the ballerina of the group, strong yet beautiful, and boldly understated.
F33 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 20867S107807 $75,000.00 $90,000.00 N/R $60,500 €52,250 -19% White over Red. When considering the purchase of a vintage Corvette, several variables will help make the final decision. If one is taking stock of factors like engine option, color and overall condition, this 1962 model may be an ideal fit for the discerning buyer. This car is the recipient of an older restoration with an accompanying unrestored hardtop unit included. The body and paint was done by Willy O’Hara, and the engine was rebuilt by Scott Jones of JS Enterprises. As most enthusiasts know, 1962 represented the final and most refined release of the first-generation styling. It was also the final season that GM proactively involved its products in competition events. Beneath the hood of this example is the matching-numbers fuel-injected 327/360 HP V-8 engine which, as RPO 582, was the highest-horsepower mill in any first-generation model, as 1962 was the first year for the legendary 327 engine design. In this case, it features finned valve covers and the box-plenum air intake. Coupled to the 7,000 RPM tachometer and 160 MPH speedometer, a skilled driver could amply use the 4-speed transmission to make the Corvette lively. Inside, this Corvette has a bright red interior with a color-matched 3-spoke steering wheel, Wonderbar radio, heater, in-dash clock and low-mount rearview mirror. The outside features the driver’s-side mirror, crossed-flag and Fuel Injection callout tags, ribbed lower rocker-panel moldings and split bumpers. Among the special pieces here are the correct Harrison aluminum radiator and overflow tank, both date coded 62B. This car, offered without a soft top, came with narrow-band whitewall tires in keeping with the trends of the early 1960s, as well as steel wheels featuring spinner wheel covers. Most recently, seals in the rear, engine and transmission were refreshed, and documentation on this car will include both rebuild receipts and the owner’s manual. High horsepower, the outstanding color combination and excellent conditioning combine to make this a terrific buying opportunity.
F34 1998 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta 110928 $50,000.00 $60,000.00 $55,000 €47,500 Mid Giallo Modena over Nero leather. Traditional Italian craftsmanship and cutting-edge engineering intersect in this 1998 Ferrari F355 F1 Berlinetta. With two owners and 29,175 original miles, the Giallo Modena and black Connolly leather-upholstered F355 earned its F1 designation when Ferrari tapped into its Formula One race program in 1997 and created the first production automobile outfitted with an electro-hydraulically operated automated manual 6-speed transmission. Race-winning performance technology and refined driver ergonomics made the 1994-99 F355 one of the most popular and desirable Ferraris in its time, and that performance heritage drives on today. The mid-mounted 3.5L V-8 was equipped with DOHC 5-valve per cylinder heads, titanium-alloy connecting rods, dry-sump oiling and Bosch engine management for a factory tested 375 HP at 8,250 RPM. Steering-wheel-mounted paddle-shift controls work with the electro-hydraulically activated single-plate clutch, 6-speed gearbox and limited-slip differential to channel uninterrupted power to the rear wheels. Tuned independent suspension with dual-mode electronic damping control, power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel vented disc brakes deliver unparalleled driver feedback and road control without compromise in comfort over road or track. The steel and aluminum body incorporates Pininfarina design backed up by extensive wind-tunnel testing with functional aerodynamic elements and an F1-derived undertray for low drag, equalized downforce and high-speed stability. The black leather interior is hand finished with bolstered bucket seats, power windows and locks, air conditioning, and an AM/FM cassette stereo for convenience and entertainment. Sports steering wheel with airbag sits over traditional recessed instrumentation and digital gear indicator for the paddle-shifted F1 transmission. With both hands on the wheel, the driver can take focused command over the shrieking 180-degree crankshaft 40-valve V-8 and staggered-width 5-spoke alloy wheels with ultra-high performance compound tires.
F35 1978 Ferrari 308GTS 23657 $50,000.00 $60,000.00 $49,500 €42,750 -1% Rosso over Nero leather. Red, sexy, Italian: the 1978 Ferrari 308 GTS hits the mark on all three points. This U.S.-specification model—Chassis No. 23657—was made two years before the car achieved legendary status via the magic of television. Initially introduced at the 1977 Frankfurt Motor Show, this is one of 3,219 GTS models built between 1977 and 1980. Displayed in Rosso Chiaro with a black pebble-grained Targa roof and highly bolstered black leather interior, this steel-bodied design can get anyone’s pulse racing. Power is derived from a mid-engine 2.9L/237 HP 90-degree V-8 engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission with the iconic gated shifter. Fed by four dual-draft Weber carburetors, its power was slightly hampered over the European-specification model due to the U.S. version’s mandated catalytic converters. The 308 GTS’s transverse-mounted dual-overhead camshaft (DOHC) engine rides inside a tube frame with independent front and rear suspension. Designed with double wishbones, hydraulic dampers, coaxial coil springs and anti-roll bars to tighten the handling on both ends, its steering was via an unassisted rack-and-pinion system. The Pininfarina-designed, Carrozzeria Scaglietti-built body displays nicely in the factory-correct light red paint and rides on Cromodora wheels shod with Michelin radials. As it is a U.S.-market Ferrari 308 GTS, it features the 2.5 MPH crash bumpers at the front and the 2 MPH bumper with a spacer at the rear. A distinguishing feature of the U.S. model is the U-shaped vent louvers over the engine cover as an aide to releasing the extra heat caused by the catalytic converters. Factory specifications estimated the 308 GTS model to be capable of 151 MPH with a 0-60 MPH time of 6.5 seconds. One of the most widely recognized Ferrari models, it achieved iconic status as the vehicle of choice for television detective Thomas Magnum, played by actor Tom Selleck, on “Magnum P.I.” Many Ferrari enthusiasts had a poster of the 308 GTS in the bedrooms of their youth, and it still looks great today
F36 1931 Ford Model A Monterey Bay AAA Wrecker A877615 $40,000.00 $50,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue over Black. The Ford Model A certainly had a role in the storied history of the Monterey Bay and Salinas Valley, and this wrecker recreation celebrates that motoring heritage with an American Monterey Bay Automobile Association livery. This Model A underwent a frame-off restoration that transformed the truck into a show-quality wrecker tribute finished with meticulous attention to detail from the front winch to rear crane hook. The restored wrecker is a fitting homage to Monterey-based roadside service trucks of the era. The famously durable Ford 201 CI L-head 4-cylinder engine is finished in original detail and sends its 40 HP through a floor-shifted 3-speed sliding-gear manual transmission. Black vinyl-upholstered bench seating and door panels join a black-painted dash, 4-spoke steering wheel with column-mounted flashlight and rubber carpet in the closed Model A truck cab. Blue exterior paint was accented with white and red pinstripes over gloss black fenders and running boards. Monterey Bay American Automobile Association tribute livery includes historical company door logos and 24 Hour Roadside Service bedside lettering. Finished wood handles provide a comfortable hold for the manually cranked load-stabilizing front winch and three-ton Weaver Auto Crane. Both are outfitted with new steel cabling and finished in body-color-matched white and black paint. The crane is topped by a purpose-built folding emergency-light bar with red lollipop caution light and dual rear-facing work lights. Custom-fabricated solid-steel chrome-plated side rails and Ford-logo-script step plates provide sure grip and footing when hooking up stranded motorists, and a vintage brass fire extinguisher is poised to snuff out unexpected conflagrations. The wrecker tribute rolls on heavy-duty oversized wire-spoke wheels fitted with new whitewall tires.

F38 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible E57S102646 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Metallic Blue and White over Red. This Top Flight-winning 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has been restored to its original 1957 Arctic Blue with Inca Silver coves and a dazzling red interior. Model-year 1957 was a historic year for the Corvette. The Corvette cemented itself as a serious sports car with a solid showing at the Daytona Beach Trials and a historic run at the 12 Hours of Sebring, in which John Fitch and Walt Hansgen achieved Corvette’s first class win in international competition. Development of the car included a smaller and lighter body, new suspension and a standard V-8 with an increase of 30 HP culminating in a more powerful and nimble package. The exterior paint and chrome are in superb condition, and the car is offered with its removable hardtop and soft top. An abundance of chrome—including the driver’s-side mirror, bumpers, grille, trim and spinner wheel covers—shines splendidly and blends harmoniously with the desirable color combination. The red interior of the car strays slightly from the exterior color pallet and adds an eye-catching flash of color. Interior options include the AM signal-seeking radio, rare power-window option, heater, washer system, parking-brake alarm and courtesy lights. The 283/245 HP V-8 engine is very clean. The new V-8 produced by Chevrolet for the 1956 model year was a big improvement from the previous incarnation and was to be mated with one of two transmission options. This Corvette sends its power to the rear wide whitewall tires through an automatic 2-speed
F39 1962 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II LSZD97 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 $41,250 €35,625 Mid Black over Black leather. The name Rolls-Royce instantly invokes imagery of affluence and stately elegance. The firm’s brand equity has become synonymous with tradition and craftmanship juxtaposed to a current industrial world dominated by robotics and automation. This dignified 1962 Rolls-Royce Sliver Cloud II represents a better time in history when hand-hewn craftsmanship and artisan skills were held in high regard. Designed by John Polwhele Blatchley, the lines of this four-door luxury sedan present as both timeless and elegant. Blatchley was considered the consummate designer of his time, having spent his early career with the esteemed J. Gurney Nutting & Company Limited before moving over to Rolls-Royce. During his term as chief stylist at Rolls-Royce, he finished several design masterpieces, including the Silver Dawn, Silver Shadow and Corniche. This particular Silver Cloud II is one of 2,417 built from 1959-1962, and although its visual appearance remained largely unchanged from its predecessor Silver Cloud I series, the car was dramatically changed mechanically. It now featured a large-displacement 6.2L V-8 engine replacing the outgoing 4.9L inline 6-cylinder unit. This markedly improved the bottom-end torque necessary to power this 2.5-ton Saloon down the English motorway and resulted in a quantum acceleration improvement by shaving off 2.6 seconds from the 0-60 MPH time. The elegance of this car is breathtaking with its rich black leather interior highlighted with red piping on the seats and door panels, the burled-walnut dashboard, upper door sills and rear tray tables finished to a deep mirror-like gloss, and Wilton wool carpeting and Mohair headliner. The car comes factory equipped with air conditioning, an automatic transmission, power steering and power windows. Meanwhile, the black exterior is accented by the iconic Rolls-Royce grille—a brilliant design inspired by the architecture of Greek temples that takes an experienced craftsman almost two days to construct and polish—and discreet red pinstriping that finishes off the stately look of this icon of British luxury.
F40 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 2G1FS1EP0C9801014 $40,000.00 $50,000.00 $52,250 €45,125 4% Black over Black leather. Having traveled a mere 295 miles from new, this 2012 Camaro ZL1 packs a supercharged 6.2L/580 HP LSA V-8 good for 580 HP and 556 lb-ft of torque mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The ZL1 is a lot more than just another muscle car; it has a performance instrument with luxuries anyone can appreciate. Presented in black on black, this car features the power steering, power brakes, power windows, power locks, power seats and the optional power sunroof. The interior is awash in suede and microfiber, with accents on the steering wheel, shift knob and shift boot. The heated seats are upholstered in microfiber with contrasting red stitching, which is reflected on the dashboard as well. The dual-climate control will ensure comfort for both front-seat passengers, while everyone will enjoy the balanced sounds from the Boston Acoustic premium audio system. The hood features an exposed, carbon-fiber-weave insert, lending a unique appearance and an aggressive image to an already aggressive car. Building on that and aiding in the control of the ZL1 are 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels wrapped in low-profile, high-performance Goodyear tires. Critics applauded the flat, level way in which the ZL1 took corners and curves, with nearly no body roll or drama, exiting to the straightaway with a confidence normally found in extremely expensive exotic cars; the brakes left them speechless and, of course, the raw acceleration boggled the mind. A ZL1 could sprint from 0-60 MPH in about 4 seconds flat and cross the quarter mile in about 12 seconds somewhere in the 120 MPH neighborhood. Equipped with Magnetic Ride Suspension, the ZL1 rides compliantly in both spirited driving and boulevard cruising—yes, teeth fillings comfortably remain in place. The Performance Traction Management system allows drivers various levels of driving assistance from Wet Mode to Race Mode, each changing the character of the car for the drive—crisper shifts or softer, more responsive or milder brakes and acceleration, it tailors the feel of the car. This ZL1 is proof that technology, luxury and muscle can coexist in one package.
F41 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 2G1FS1EE4E9700396 $50,000.00 $70,000.00 $63,250 €54,625 Mid Black over Black leather. Introduced at the 2013 New York Auto Show, the 2014 Camaro Z28 excited people with a familiar name that meant performance over frills and handling paramount to all. This particular example has only covered 31 miles from new and was one of the first production vehicles fitted with the Multimatic DSSV race suspension. It’s also been equipped with the optional air conditioning, six-speaker audio system and performance traction-management system. Black on black, the interior is a combination of leather and microfiber surfaces, creating a plush but business-like environment. Even the gear knob and flat-bottom steering wheel are clothed in microfiber. The steering wheel hosts controls for the cruise control and stereo system. The Recaro sport seats feature microfiber suede inserts and are remarkably supportive, particularly during spirited driving. To dial in the trackability of the Z28, Chevrolet not only tested it extensively at GM’s Milford Road Course, but also sent it to Nürburgring, Road Atlanta, Road America and Virginia International Raceway where it was fine tuned to handle nearly any competitive course. Chevrolet employed a special aerodynamics package with flared fenders, a front splitter, an underbody pan, a rear diffuser and a rear spoiler to create downforce and reduce lift. To shed a few pounds, Chevrolet used fewer sound-deadening materials and thinned the back seat and rear windshield among other sleights. Unlike the original Z28, the fifth-generation Z28 uses a massive aluminum 7.0L LS7 V-8 engine good for 505 HP and 470 lb-ft of torque. The LS7 redlines at 7,000 RPM and features coated pistons, titanium intake valves and connecting rods, and forged-steel crankshaft and main-bearing caps. Power is sent to the rear via a Tremec close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission and Torsen limited-slip 3.91 Helical differential with cooler. Keeping things balanced are 15-inch Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes with front cooling ducts and 19-inch forged-aluminum wheels with Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo tires. The Z28 clocked 0-60 MPH sprints at about 4.4 seconds and reportedly corners with the grace of a ballerina.
F42 1965 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible E5147338 $50,000.00 $65,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Silver over White leather. Cadillac drove into the mid-1960s with a larger-displacement V-8 and distinctive styling that was a sharp departure from the ‘50s. The Eldorado became part of the Fleetwood series in 1965 with its longer and lower slab-sided silhouette accented by vertically stacked headlight and tail-lamp assemblies. This highly original 1965 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible has aged gracefully with a single repaint into its Sheffield Firemist Silver factory color. Driven just 39,733 believed-original miles, this Eldorado was sold new at Frank Kent Cadillac in Fort Worth, Texas, and it has spent most of its life in the state of Texas. Cadillac redesigned its overhead-valve engine with a lighter and stronger block for 1963, and in 1964, the quietly powerful V-8 grew in displacement from 390 to 429 CI. With a Carter 4-barrel carburetor and hydraulic valve lifters, the 1965 V-8 was factory rated for 340 HP and 480 lb-ft of torque resulting in a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio across the Cadillac lineup. The big-block is backed by a Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission with dual drive range for selectable suburban speed performance or high-gear lockout downhill braking. Improved front and 4-link rear suspension were engineered to deliver world-class ride and road control. Powering down the white convertible top reveals the original and well-appointed ivory leather interior with perforated-leather contoured bucket seating, a padded center console and six-way power driver seat. The tilt-and-telescoping steering column was a Cadillac first for 1965 with remote-control side and day-night rearview mirrors for added convenience. Factory air conditioning works with power side and Ventipane windows for tailored cabin temperature. Automatic frequency control and remote antenna help the AM/FM radio with rear-speaker deliver entertainment while the Twilight Sentinel keeps its electronic eye open day and night to automatically activate and deactivate lighting.
F43 2007 Porsche 911/997 GT3 WP0AC299X7S792858 $75,000.00 $100,000.00 $71,500 €61,750 -5% Black over Black leather. The Porsche 911 GT3 is a street-legal derivative of the racing machine that saw competition in the GT3 Cup Challenge, a North American-based one-make racing series sanctioned by IMSA. The street version is a thinly veiled race car with the direct transference of the parts and pieces from the GT3 Cup Challenge car. That said, there are a few additions and deletions that distinguish it from its Challenge Cup sibling. The first change to the street-legal GT3 is the addition of Porsche Active Stability Management that features active adjustable dampers allowing the driver to choose either a street mode or sport mode depending on circumstances. The second welcome addition on the street car is air conditioning, a feature that is certainly much appreciated in the U.S. market. The final distinguishing factor is the deletion of the roll bar on all American-bound GT3s based on an edict imposed by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Despite these changes, this is still basically a race car with just a minimum of obligatory equipment to render it street legal. The GT3 is visually identifiable by its model-only front apron/air splitter, rear bi-wing, rear lower apron with twin exhaust tips and wide-body rear fenders. What makes the GT3 so special is its intoxicating and exhilarating driving experience. The raucous exhaust note emanating from the 3.6L/415 HP flat-6 that revs all the way up to an 8,400 RPM redline is a signature trait of the car. The competition-derived suspension and steamroller-sized Michelin Pilot Sport tires provide tenacious grip, the cross-drilled and vented rotors deliver massive stopping power, and the short-throw linkage enables crisp gear changes, making the GT3 a visceral car requiring total driver involvement. This GT3—sporting only 21,650 miles on its odometer and presented in black with a matching black interior trimmed in both leather and Alcantara—stands ready for more thrill rides.
F44 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible J59S101478 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White over Black. As the 1950s wound down, one thing had become evident: Chevrolet’s risk on a two-seat sports car had paid off. Indeed, Ford had ended up going to a four-seat Thunderbird platform after mild sales, and from a design standpoint, there was no domestic counterpart to the Corvette, and few from overseas. This 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is one of 3,354 produced. Starting in 1958, the first-generation styling now included dual headlamps on each side, and trim reworking initiated in changes credited to Harley Earl gave the car an almost aggressive sense. From the hot-lapped curves of Sebring to the hills of Hollywood, this had become America’s sports car. The example here is painted in beautiful Snowcrest White paint with complementing silver coves and a black interior. Horsepower comes from a 283 CI engine with dual 4-barrel carburetors. This 230 HP engine, with cast-aluminum valve covers and a round chrome air cleaner and is backed by a Turbo 350 3-speed automatic transmission. Nimble acceleration while retaining highway manners is thanks to a 3.36 rear gear set. Once entering the car, you are greeted with newer seats, door panels and Daytona carpet. This car has its original dash pad, with engine monitoring using factory gauges, an OEM shifter with pattern plate, in-dash clock and 3-spoke steering wheel. A pushbutton radio is in the dash as well, and a black convertible soft top will keep the weather on the outside. An unmistakable stance from every angle is courtesy of a set of factory steel wheels with correct hubcaps and period-correct bias-ply whitewall tires. From 1953 to 1962, this first-generation design captured the imagination of buyers and those who hoped they could be buyers. With a nod to 1950s-era chrome and trim, a multi-carb engine layout with its compatible driveline, and excellent overall beauty, this 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is certain to thrill its new owne
F45 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 1Z37Z3S432075 $50,000.00 $75,000.00 $63,800 €55,100 Mid Elkhart Green over Beige. Stunning in its rare and original Elkhart Green paint and with only 76 miles on the odometer since new, this 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe is a stunning representation of the 1973 Corvette. Model-year 1973 was a transformation for the Corvette. The car was given new chassis-mounting bushings, radial tires, guard beams, the removable rear window had been made permanent and a slight restyle had been performed to the nose. The overall ride quality was greatly improved, and noise in the cockpit was reduced by 40 percent thanks to sound insulation sprayed inside the body panels. It was the last year for the chrome rear bumper and the first year for the federally mandated 5 MPH bumper, which took some finesse to fit into the established Corvette styling trends. This Corvette boasts its original Elkhart Green paint and chrome work with the exception of the front bumper being refinished due to age cracking. Styling changes included a redesigned hood to hide the windshield wipers and provide cold-air intake with an inlet at the base of the windshield. The optional LS4 454 CI big-block V-8 received a slight boost to 275 HP and maintained an impressive 395 lb-ft of torque. This car’s 454 CI engine has been mated with an automatic transmission with a console-mounted shifter that funnels power to the rear wheels featuring wire wheel covers. Options include power brakes, power steering, power windows, T-tops and tinted windows. The Medium Saddle interior features bucket seats, factory air conditioning, a Delco AM/FM radio and wood-grain door inserts. Please note that this car has never been titled or registered and the original MSO remains with the car. Ownership will be transferred via a bill of sale. Should the new owner wish to drive the car on public roads, he or she must title the car in his or her name, which will require the surrender of the historic MSO. Documentation for this Corvette includes both the original window sticker and shipping invoice. It’s certainly a sweet ride that takes you right back to the heart of the “Me generation.”

F46 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 194676S118997 $75,000.00 $90,000.00 $82,500 €71,250 Mid Silver Pearl over Black. The “Barn Find” has become an integral part of the mythological realm that has formed around the collector-car hobby. Indeed, the chase to make the next great discovery of a long-lost automotive treasure has spilled over into the popular culture in such media as the “Chasing Classic Cars” television show, and a Barn Find class was added to the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals held each year in Chicago, Illinois. Like a modern-day gold rush, this cultural phenomenon has led legions of enthusiasts to scour the fruited plain, hoping to lay claim to their own hard-won prize. Among them is the dedicated Corvette enthusiast who discovered this 1966 Sting Ray big-block convertible, which was literally stored in a barn in 1980. Produced on April 13, 1966, the car has now been completed after a comprehensive frame-off restoration to its present period-correct specification. The 1966 Corvette was the first to feature a 427 CI version of the famous Mark IV big-block V-8 engine. Chevrolet officially rated it at 425 HP at 5,600 RPM, the L72 held a secret: in real-world use, its power kept climbing past those figures, reaching peak output at the 6,500 RPM redline, where it unofficially surpassed 450 HP. A period-correct L72 427/425 HP engine bearing a January 1966 date stamp now powers this Sting Ray convertible in concert with the original 4-speed manual transmission and a 4.11:1 Positraction rear end. Finished in handsome Silver Pearl paint with a black interior, it is offered with both the convertible top and auxiliary hard top. The potent driveline is complemented with F41 heavy-duty suspension complete with the correct 1966-dated shock absorbers and includes the original rear leaf springs, radiator, hood, gauges and housing, and AM/FM radio. Tinted glass, finned-aluminum knock-off wheels and factory-style side exhaust complete this beautifully restored barn-find 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible.
F47 1965 Shelby Cobra Replica F5R1005560RD $65,000.00 $75,000.00 $60,500 €52,250 -7% Orange and White over Black. Technological advancements in this Shelby Cobra Replica have created a safer, faster, more robust and more comfortable car than the genuine article. A Factory Five MkIII Cobra Build, denoted build No. 001 by Cameron Autosports in 2006, it is powered by a Windsor 427 CI stroker V-8 engine built by Ford Performance Solutions in Anaheim, California, the rear wheels are sprung by an 8.8 Super Coupe independent rear suspension with a Torsen differential and get their grunt from a TKO 600 5-speed manual transmission. Koni coilover shocks keep things stable. Using a McLeod Racing internal throw-out bearing, the Cobra rides on polished 15-inch Halibrand wheels with Goodyear Eagle tires. All the “GO” from the 427 is kept in check by 4-wheel PBR disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors and a Girling master cylinder with a custom-machined reservoir. Having taken First in Class at the 2008 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California, the car was painted Hugger Orange with Alpine White stripes by Ken Pike at Ken’s Custom Auto Body in Yuba City, California. Even the chassis is coated in two-stage metallic silver powder coating. The black interior has a number of unique features such as the Custom Competition leather dash with Stewart Warner gauges, a 5-pound Flame Out on-board halon fire-suppression system and traditional wood and aluminum steering wheel. Speaking of traditional, the speedometer needle spins counter clockwise. The Cobra employs a Fuel Safe fuel cell and competition tail lights, lending a little more to the safety end of things. The engine was rebuilt in October 2012 by Ford Performance Solutions, giving it a freshness for the new caretaker. A metallic silver powder-coated chassis, powder coating, automatic fire-safety equipment, racing-inspired parts and modern braking mark an attention to detail that make this one fine automobile.
F48 2005 Dodge RAM SRT-10 Yellow Fever Edition 3D3HA16H05G740080 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 $56,100 €48,450 Mid Yellow over Black. The long Mopar heritage of high-performance specials is not lost on this 2005 Dodge Ram SRT-10 Yellow Fever Edition pickup. Race-proven Viper V-10 power and distinctive styling thrust the otherwise workaday hauler into a cross between a Dodge Super Bee and Power Wagon. The SRT-10 is No. 138 of only 500 produced and one of only 200 examples configured with a standard cab. The supertruck has traveled just 1,449 miles since it left the factory and is offered with its original window sticker, associated literature and manuals, factory-issue keys and service records. The SRT-10 was factory equipped with a sequential-port fuel-injected 8.3L V-10 Viper engine that thundered out 500 HP and 525 lb-ft of torque through a Hurst-shifted 6-speed manual transmission and anti-spin limited-slip rear axle. SRT group calibrated heavy-duty suspension with Bilstein shocks joined by 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and red-finish calipers, polished 22-inch alloy wheels and low-profile UHP-compound tires for maximum road control. The regular cab SRT-10 pickup could launch from 0-60 MPH in less than 5 seconds, hold .86 g on the skidpad and run flatout in excess of 150 MPH. High-impact Solar Yellow paint, a functional front fascia, rocker panels and rear spoiler set the Dodge apart from regular-production Ram pickups with wind-tunnel-tested style. Fanged hood stripe graphics go one step beyond. Power-adjustable bolstered bucket seats with SRT-10 embroidered headrests, 518-watt Infinity sound system, power windows and locks join a full complement of SRT-10 branded and Auto Meter instrumentation in the dark slate gray leather-upholstered interior. Seat and shifter-boot stitching, the dash bezel and door-panel inserts blend high-impact body color into the cab with a serialized dash plate as an authentic finishing touch to the collectible SRT-10 combination of factory performance and unique style.
F49 1987 Toyota FJ60 Land Cruiser JT3FJ60G0H1139854 $25,000.00 $35,000.00 $34,100 €29,450 Mid White over Tan. This exceptional final-year FJ-60 was sold new at Big Horn Toyota in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, and has had just three owners from new. A well-maintained original vehicle, it is equipped with a 4.2L 6-cylinder engine and 4-speed transmission, and compared to other FJ-60s of its vintage, it has a surprisingly low 147,971 miles on its odometer. Popularly considered the most refined of the FJ-60 line, the 1987 model incorporates all of the running changes implemented by Toyota throughout the model’s lifespan, including a beefier transfer case. Here, power steering, air conditioning and front and rear heaters combine for a comfortable cabin, and the flat-folding backseat allows for ample cargo space that rivals any modern SUV. A rust-free exterior and impressively clean original interior are nice departures from comparable examples, as so often these Land Cruisers were used and abused as multifunctional haulers and cross-country road trippers. Retaining its original Toyota radio in the dash along with a dealer-installed cassette deck in the proper location, both the inside and outside of this truck instantly take one back to 1987. This FJ-60 was recently treated to an extensive professional servicing that included changing of fluids, valve adjustment, new custom radiator, new OE Toyota exhaust, four new tires and alignment, braking-system flush and a new air-conditioning compressor and conversion to R134A refrigerant. To further ensure that its lasting good looks are here to stay, this FJ-60’s chassis and surfaces were cleaned and treated with Boeing Boeshield rust-preventative coating. Vintage SUVs continue to gain in popularity, and a stunning final-year FJ-60 such as this is a rare find of one of the best and most legendary SUVs of all time.
F50 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A JH23J0B296469 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 $132,000 €113,999 32% Red and Black over White. For a classic-era performance car to be truly impressive, it needs substance, and no one could argue that this spectacular tri-color 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A lacks that. The T/A was released as a direct result of Dodge desiring to showcase its brand-new 1970 body design in the wildly popular SCCA Trans-Am series. Due to rules regulation on components, the company was required to build 2,399 examples equipped like the car offered here—one for every two Dodge dealerships. The car you are seeing benefited from a refreshing that was completed in 2015. Documentation includes two original broadcast sheets and a binder of more recent receipts from its restoration. For the T/A, the company chose to use the durable 340 LA-series small-block, but topped it with 3 Holley 2-barrel carburetors, the only time this engine was ever offered in a production-line Dodge. The remainder of the unmistakable pieces were special spoilers, side-exit exhaust, a fiberglass hood and unique graphics, also only available in 1970. Under the hood is a correct 340 CI V-8 engine with the T/A casting number, and the car has both a rebuilt A727 automatic transmission and a rebuilt Sure Grip differential with new Auburn gears. These Challengers were designed for nimble cornering and feature power steering and power brakes. Of course, what catches one’s eye instantly is the color combination, which is the correct FE5 Rallye Red with a complementing H6XW white interior. Inside are bucket seats and the C16 center console with the Slap Stik shifter and the optional Rallye dash layout. Outside is the black fiberglass hood with factory snorkel-design scoop and chrome hold-down pins, plus chin and deck spoilers, Rallye wheels and BF Goodrich radial tires. Rebuilt for show-quality enjoyment, the longitudinal T/A graphics and tri-color red body, blacked-out components and white interior make it exceptional. This Dodge Challenger T/A certainly exudes curb appeal.
F51 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible J59S105521 $95,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Frost Blue and White over Blue. This 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has garnered multiple awards, including the prestigious National Corvette Restorers Society Top Flight Award. With General Motors on a crash program to deliver new body styles across the board to counter Chrysler’s “Forward Look” designs, chief engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov was left to make mostly detail changes to Corvette for model-year 1959. A small but important change was moving the inner door-release knobs forward, a decision Arkus-Duntov made after catching the sleeve of his raincoat during a left-hand turn and causing the door to open. The instruments were redesigned for better legibility and fewer reflections; a new 7,000 RPM tach featured safe, caution and danger zones; the seats received better bolstering and an open storage bin was added below the more heavily padded passenger grab handle. The 1959 Corvette also featured the first shifter with a T-handle-operated reverse lockout mechanism. Duntov improved the 1959 model’s suspension with trailing radius rods to fight axle tramp under hard acceleration, and longer wheel travel enabled by relocating the shock absorbers, which now incorporated nitrogen-filled capsules to minimize shock fluid foaming. The most noticeable revision was the absence of the “washboard” non-functioning hood louvers and chromed trunk spears of 1958, omissions that cleaned up the car’s overall look in keeping with the philosophy of new chief designer Bill Mitchell. Corvette’s Rochester fuel injection was in its third year in 1959, producing 290 HP and attaining 60 MPH in 6.6 seconds and quarter-mile times of 14.5 seconds at 96 MPH. This 1959 Corvette features the “Fuelie” small-block, complete with solid lifters and dual ignition points, mated to a 3-speed manual transmission. Lovely Frost Blue paint and Snowcrest White coves combine with a blue interior for a particularly elegant presentation. One of only 361 produced with that combination, this example also offers windshield washers, sun visors, courtesy lights and a Wonderbar radio.
F52 1991 Acura NSX JH4NA1150MT000246 $70,000.00 $85,000.00 $50,600 €43,700 -28% Red over Black leather. The Acura NSX made its debut at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show and was introduced as a production model the following summer. This 1991 example is No. 246 of 3,163 produced for the same year and displays just 39,000 miles on the odometer. The first all-aluminum mid-engine Japanese sports car is offered with its original paint, interior and alloy wheels along with a hardcover NSX sales brochure. Climate-controlled storage and Acura dealership-performed maintenance preserved the factory-issue NSX experience for ongoing mid-engine motoring. The NSX could launch from 0-60 MPH in less than 6-seconds and click off a quarter mile in less than 14-seconds on the way to its 165 MPH top speed. The dual-overhead-camshaft 4-valve per cylinder VTEC variable-valve timing and lift-equipped 3.0L V-6 was rated for 270 HP and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. The powertrain is mounted amidships in an aluminum monocoque chassis created from a process where molten aluminum was extruded into a honeycomb structure for unparalleled strength and reduced weight. Independent suspension, traction control and 4-wheel anti-lock vented disc brakes were developed with input from McLaren-Honda Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna. Honda constructed a dedicated facility where each NSX was mounted on its own dolly and pushed by hand on its way to completion with a mix of cutting-edge technology and traditional craftsmanship at the hands of vetted Honda technicians. The two-place interior features power-adjustable leather bucket seats on lightweight aluminum frames around a center shift console with Bose audio system, automatic climate control and door-mount power window and mirror controls. The F-16 fighter-jet-inspired windshield offers a commanding 312-degree view of the road ahead from behind the leather-wrapped tilt and telescoping steering wheel.
F53 1964 Ford Fairlane 500 4K43K188677 $45,000.00 $55,000.00 $44,000 €38,000 -2% Vintage Burgundy over Black. As a very rare K-code model, this 1964 Fairlane 500 has been updated with tasteful “Day Two” modifications. Introduced for the Fairlane at mid-year 1963, the 289 High Performance engine continued as an option for the 1964 models. Although Ford did not maintain production records prior to 1967, the Fairlane Club of America estimates that fewer than 6,000 K-code Fairlanes were built during the 1963-65 production span, including just 3,600 for 1964. Rated by Ford at 271 HP, the Hi-Po V-8 engine was prepped for high-revving output with a 4-barrel carburetor, solid-lifter camshaft, dual-point distributor, cylinder heads with smaller combustion chambers for 10.5:1 compression, and a block beefed up with thicker main-bearing caps, high-nodularity crankshaft and larger rod bolts. Designated by a “K” engine code in the VIN, the 289 Hi-Po was a package deal for the Fairlane, adding a 4-speed manual transmission, 9-inch rear end and heavy-duty springs and shocks. Featuring original sheet metal under the Vintage Burgundy paint, this Fairlane 500 is also equipped with many popular modifications from the 1960s, notably the 15-inch Cragar S/S wheels with blackwall tires, Detroit Locker rear differential, tubular headers and dual exhaust with cutouts. Additions to the black bench-seat interior include a white shifter ball and dash-mounted Sun Super Tach, while the steering wheel and push-button AM radio remain factory correct. Under the hood, the recently detailed engine compartment glistens with fresh black paint, factory-style hoses and clamps, chrome valve covers and open-element chrome air cleaner. The trunk has also been recently detailed. With a rakish stance and tell-tale “High Performance” plates behind the 289 fender emblem, this 1964 Fairlane 500 is a factory muscle machine equipped with many of the popular Hot Rod modifications of its day.
F54 1939 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special 6292723 $40,000.00 $50,000.00 N/R $23,100 €19,950 -42% Burgundy over Beige leather. This 1939 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special brings the smart practicality of a sedan together with the luggage space and swagger of a coupe. Redesigned in 1938 with sharp new styling, Cadillac deemed its car so versatile that the Fleetwood-bodied 60 Special became its own distinct series in the 1939 lineup that the company trumpeted as the newest cars in the world. With a believed-original 43,100 miles on the odometer, this burgundy example underwent a period-correct restoration finished to superb detail and was subsequently housed in a climate-controlled building to preserve the Cadillac experience. Cadillac was an engineering innovations leader in the 1930s, and its 346 CI L-head V-8 engine was factory rated for 135 HP at 3,400 RPM with a Stromberg carburetor. The cast-iron block and heads with hydraulic valve lifters worked together for quiet propulsion through the 3-speed selective synchromesh manual transmission equipped with what Cadillac called “triple silent” helical-cut gears in all forward speeds. Independent front suspension and hydraulic brakes on all four wheels were designed to deliver road handling and ride quality expected of a Cadillac. The Fleetwood body is finished in burgundy from its fabric-covered turret-top roof to the rocker panels, which are unencumbered by old-fashioned running boards that would only interrupt the styling penned by the young and soon-to-be legendary designer Bill Mitchell. The optional radio and heater provide entertainment and comfort inside the five-passenger cabin that is upholstered in exterior-harmonized fabric and carpet with room enough for driver and passengers alike to enjoy spacious luxury. Rear-fender skirts with Cadillac-crest medallions and full wheel covers add a measure of formal elegance to the body-color steel wheel and wide whitewall tire package. Cadillac claimed the trunk was voluminous enough to stow luggage for a transcontinental journey, a hint that the car was comfortable enough to tackle such a daunting trip.
F55 2007 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Ron Fellows Edition 1G1YY26E675132048 $60,000.00 $75,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White over Black and Red leather. The Ron Fellows American Le Mans Series GT1 Champion Z06 was the first autographed factory special-edition in Corvette history. Fellows helped test and develop the first Corvette C5.R racer, and this limited-production Z06 is an homage to his six consecutive American Le Mans Series championships from 2001-2006. Only 399 Ron Fellows Edition Corvettes were produced with 300 reserved for the U.S., 33 for Canada and 66 designated for export. The specially prepared production model has logged just 1,002 miles since it left Bowling Green, Kentucky. The hand-assembled 7.0L LS7 V-8 is factory rated for 505 HP at 6,300 RPM and 470 lb-ft of torque at 4,800 RPM. The engine is backed by a 6-speed transmission with short-throw shifter that sends power through a limited-slip differential. Speed-sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering and active handling join Fellows Edition alloy wheels outfitted with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires for supercar-level road control. Six-piston front and 4-piston rear red-finish brake calipers clamp down on massive cross-drilled rotors to scrub off the 190-plus MPH top speed. The Arctic White Z06 is equipped with the Fellows Edition exclusive full-width racing spoiler. Monterey Red GT1 stripes outlined in Machine Silver with Victory Red Fellows autograph and championship-year callouts join a unique windshield banner. The cockpit features power-adjustable and heated leather seats with exclusive black and red leather-upholstered center console, door panels, instrument surround and armrest with cross-flags logo hand-signed and numbered by Ron Fellows. Power windows, locks, seats and mirrors, and dual-zone air conditioning join a Bose premium sound system with navigation. A leather-wrapped steering wheel, heads-up visual display and driver memory package offer personalized Corvette control. Any Z06 is a special car, but the Ron Fellows Edition takes this high-performance package to a whole new level.
F56 1957 Buick Roadmaster Convertible 7D2016177 $90,000.00 $110,000.00 $66,000 €57,000 -27% Black over Red leather. The copywriters marketed it as the “Big Thrills Buick,” and 1957 heralded both styling and engineering changes that influenced the gorgeous 76C model 1957 Buick Roadmaster Convertible being offered here. The beneficiary of a rotisserie restoration, this postwar motorcar introduced both major Buick chassis upgrades and the new 364 CI Fireball V-8 engine with a 300 HP rating that meant “when you want to go, you do.” Meanwhile, trim for this year stated “1957” in the center of the grille, with Roadmaster spelled out in single-character chrome lettering across the decklid. Side trim included the legendary VentiPort and Sweepspear cues, with rear bumper extensions that reached forward to the back wheelhousing. The refreshing on this Roadmaster was comprehensive. The carburetor has been set up by specialty shop International Carburetors in Gardena, California. The Fireball V-8 is backed by the Dynaflow transmission, which was rebuilt by Mesa Machine of Escondido, California. The deep paint and bodywork was completed by Abel & Sons of South Gate, California, with a new canvas convertible top by Electron Top Manufacturing installed as well. Underneath are new front and rear coil springs, shock absorbers, brakes, drums and a power brake booster. Both the rubber seals and glass are also new. The stainless trim was professionally straightened by Brite Metal of Los Angeles, with triple-plate chrome work handled by General Plating, also in Los Angeles; Cadmium plating was also done to all nuts and bolts, including wheels and inner fenders. The car rides on five new BF Goodrich 820×15 bias tubeless 203/4 whitewall tires mounted to steel wheels with full wheel covers featuring the Buick name. During the process, Dynamat Extreme was installed throughout the floors, cockpit and trunk area for insulating, and nice red leather by Danfield Leather of Los Angeles has been installed in the interior. This plays host to the power seat, Wonderbar radio and chrome adjusters, which in turn will let you enjoy the ride. After all, this is a Roadmaster.
F57 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 Convertible 446670H112938 $75,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over White. GM’s A-body platform of the early 1970s lent itself particularly well to the convertible body style, as demonstrated by the elegance of this very attractive 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 Convertible that was formerly part of the Mike Guarise Buick Stage 1 Collection. General Motors finally lifted its moratorium on engines displacing more than 400 CI in its 1970 intermediates. Like its sister divisions Oldsmobile and Pontiac, Buick raised the displacement in its flagship muscle car, the GS, to 455 CI. The resulting increase in power and torque brought customers flocking to Buick dealerships, almost doubling 1969 sales. Now in its second model year with factory cold-air induction, the GS was reinvigorated by the increased displacement, with factory ratings climbing from 340 to 350 HP and from 440 to 510 lb-ft of torque. The optional Stage 1 performance package featured an extreme performance cam, large-valve heads and a unique Rochester 4-barrel carburetor. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a genuine Stage 1 convertible. Only 232 were built, just 164 of which were produced with this example’s 400 Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission. Sold new at Joe Torres Buick in Rome, New York, it was the subject of a cosmetic restoration completed in 2007, at which time it was refinished in its original color combination of Fire Red with a Pearl White interior. The engine was rebuilt using the original 455/360 HP Stage 1 high-flow heads, special Rochester 4-barrel carburetor and distributor, and the correct BB-code transmission and rear end are present. This 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 convertible is documented with Sloan Museum certification, including a full decoding from the original GM archives and the original dealer-financing agreement.
F58 1964 Porsche 356C Coupe 128870 $65,000.00 $75,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Slate Grey over Fawn Beige. This first-year 1964 Porsche 356C Coupe is a well-documented example finished in the very rare and desirable color combination of Slate Gray with a Fawn Beige interior. The successor to three evolutions of the original 356 introduced in 1948, the Porsche 356C built on the German manufacturer’s reputation as a leading sports-car manufacturer committed to improving its cars through the rigors of competition, a process Porsche used to introduce ongoing incremental improvements to every facet of the basic design, from metallurgy, engine, suspension and chassis dynamics to the driving environment. The ultimate expression of the 356 concept, the 356C was outwardly little different from its B-series predecessor. It used the same T6 bodywork introduced on the 1962 356B, readily identified by larger windows and the dual air intakes on the engine lid, although Porsche took over the Reutter coachworks midway through 356 production and dropped the Reutter badge that was a signature feature on earlier 356s. The 356C was the first production Porsche to feature 4-wheel disc brakes, manufactured by pioneering Frankfurt-based brake specialists ATE to a Dunlop-patented design. Porsche rationalized its engine lineup for the 356C, dropping the 1600cc/60 HP “Normal” engine and replacing it with 75 HP and 95 HP versions. Cosmetically unrestored and possessed of a beautiful patina both inside and out, this 1964 Porsche 356C Coupe is documented with the original bill of sale, car sales order and export papers, Importers and Manufacturers statement of origin, owner’s manual and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Power comes via a period-correct 1,600cc/75 HP flat-4 engine (Serial No. P700611, Type 616/15) mated to the original 4-speed transmission. Showing a believed-original 75,990 miles, this desirable vintage 356C coupe retains such original items as the window and headlight glass, wipers and heating system, and is well-optioned with headrests, beige Boucle carpet, a luggage rack, lockable antenna, wood-rimmed steering wheel, factory chrome-plated steel wheels and a Blaupunkt radio with twin speakers.
F59 1948 Buick Roadmaster Convertible 14860277 $60,000.00 $75,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Maroon over Tan. The Buick Roadmaster became a noteworthy icon of America’s postwar automotive boom, but there were never a significant number of these now-scarce vehicles modified for custom-type reuse. After all, a purchase of one of these touring models was a legacy of luxury for many owners. This beautiful red 1948 convertible, whose frame-off restoration was completed in 2018, was originally rebuilt as a Resto Rod by Ken Schmidt of Sacramento, California, in the 1990s. Known as the Buick Guru on the west coast, Mr. Schmidt was the founder of the Buick Club of America California Capitol Chapter and also owned the Buick Bonery, the largest Buick scrap yard in the country. After his passing in 2010, this car was passed on to his daughter and her family completed a fresh restoration on the Roadmaster in 2018. Making use of classic body lines, conservative chrome application and carefully selected trim when new, this 1948 example in fact heralded the conclusion of the prewar-to-postwar transition on this body design and exudes the styling popularized by the fashion of streamlining. Most dynamic of the changes made to this car from its factory condition has been the installation of a 1966 Buick Riviera drivetrain and front suspension clip. This upgrade features the legendary 425 CI V-8 engine with the uniquely molded air cleaner and backed with an automatic transmission. The convertible sheet metal itself was massaged back to form but not radically changed from its OEM appearance, and the car even features year-of-manufacture 1948 California license plates. The custom interior is done in tan, with excellent changes like bucket seats, a center console, vintage Buick console-mounted tachometer and lap belts, while still retaining the classic styling of the factory dash layout. The most recent refreshing of this car has left it with gleaming chrome, with its overall attractiveness augmented with body-color red wheels and wide whitewall tires. During its past, this modified convertible was a first-place winner at the CA Capitol Chapter Buick Club of America Western Regional Meet, and its current condition should certainly allow its next owner to also enjoy similar recognition. A full-size classic with an upgraded driveline and beautiful appointments, this is a Buick Roadmaster which will live up to its moniker.
F60 1936 Cadillac Series 75 Convertible Sedan 3111969 $75,000.00 $85,000.00 $49,500 €42,750 -34% Gray over Tan. Cadillac touted its 1936 lineup as the “Royal Family of Motordom,” and this gray-over-tan Series 75 convertible sedan was the 58th example of its kind created to drive into the exclusive kingdom. The rakish Cadillac underwent a restoration from its refined V-8 powertrain and chassis out to its Fleetwood-crafted body that was completed in the 1970s. The new 1936 V-8 engine hit the trifecta of performance, economy and reliability with innovative engineering that powered Cadillac cars through 1949. The Series 75 boasted a 346 CI L-head V-8 good for 135 HP with a downdraft carburetor, hydraulic valve silencers and exhaust-vented crankcase gas system for a more refined motoring experience. The synchromesh 3-speed manual transmission transferred power to the rear wheels through a semi-floating rear axle. Knee-action independent front suspension, center-point steering, dual stabilizers and standard 4-wheel hydraulic brakes worked together for the competent road handling and uncompromising comfort expected of a Cadillac. The sleek 75-series convertible sedan body is mounted on a 138-inch wheelbase frame and features rounded and more streamlined overall design that moved to the forefront of Cadillac styling at the hands of Harley Earl as the 1930s unfolded. Chrome accessories and trim accent the sedan design from its signature hood ornament and convex vee grille out to the bumper guards. Factory-issue bullet-style headlamps are joined by a period-correct set of aftermarket Trippe auxiliary driving lights. Lowering the tan cloth convertible top reveals a luxurious five-passenger interior loaded with Art Deco elegance from the banjo-style steering wheel to sweeping dash outfitted with large-face speedometer and clock. The Cadillac Series 75 convertible rides on dressed factory steel disc wheels and whitewall tires with dual matching side-mount spares and optional covers for classic touring style and uninterrupted open-top motoring.
F61 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Edition 1Z8748S903305 $45,000.00 $60,000.00 $49,500 €42,750 Mid Black and Silver over Silver. As fresh as the day it was built at the St. Louis assembly plant, this 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car Edition is No. 3,305 of 6,502 produced, and at a mere 4 miles it is one of the best preserved of the breed. It took 25 years for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to designate the Corvette as the Official Pace Car of the Memorial Day classic, and for a couple of very good reasons. Traditionally, full-sized cars were chosen not only to chauffeur drivers and celebrities in the Festival and race-day parades, but to carry the equipment needed for radio communications and broadcasting. By the mid-1970s, miniaturization was revolutionizing electronics, making it possible to fit the necessary gear into the Corvette’s limited confines. The fact that 1978 was Corvette’s Silver Anniversary helped to seal the deal, and the first Corvette Pace Car Edition played the lead in the year-long celebration that also included the more understated Silver Anniversary Edition. Sold new at Pinkey Chevrolet Buick Pontiac, Inc., in Sodus, New York, this Corvette Pace Car Edition shows off the bolder black-over-silver livery and front and rear spoilers that were perfectly suited to high visibility in contemporary print and television. Closer inspection reveals the red pinstriping that divided the upper and lower body colors and decorated the special polished cast-aluminum wheels. As was typical for the first Corvette Pace Car Edition, this superb specimen is extensively optioned, most importantly with the L82 high-performance 350/220 HP small-block V-8, automatic transmission and FE7 Gymkhana suspension. Beneath the mirrored-glass T-tops, the silver leather interior provides power windows and locks, air conditioning, Soft Ray-tinted glass, tilt-telescopic steering wheel and an AM/FM/CB radio with power antenna. In addition to the original bill of sale, MSO, title application, registration, manual and keys with code punch-outs, this first-year Pace Car Edition is offered with three sets of decals in their original packaging.
F62 1968 Plymouth Hemi GTX RS23J8A217177 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 $68,200 €58,900 -15% Burgundy over Burgundy. Marketed humorously as meaning “Adios!” when under power, the 1968 GTX heralded a major restyling effort on the part of Plymouth. Oriented toward the well-heeled performance buyer, the GTX was the most upscale of Plymouth’s mid-size car offerings, and this Hemi-powered example is quite special in terms of its optional equipment and condition. In fact, this car was shown on the cover of “Mopar Collector’s Guide” magazine under the feature title “Burgundy Behemoth,” as it displays the very rare color combination of Burgundy Metallic paint with a matched Burgundy interior. As noted, Plymouth’s B-body line was refined for what would be this model’s second year with more muscular edges, a powerful hood treatment with ridges showing off engine callouts, paired rocker-panel side stripes and special GTX trim. Noted as one of 410 Hemi GTX hardtops built in 1968, this car is likely a singular example with its optional equipment, plus it has had just one repaint in the original color and even retains its original interior. Both the engine compartment and the trunk have been detailed. Under the hood is King Kong itself, the 426 Hemi V-8 engine that features two 4-barrel carburetors and 425 HP. That is backed by the A727 Torqueflite automatic transmission and an 8.75-inch Sure Grip rear end with 3.23 gears, allowing for excellent highway manners when taking a young lady out on the town back then, or perhaps showing her the intricacies of street racing. Inside, one finds bucket seats, a center console with chrome floor shift, the rare in-dash tachometer, an AM radio with 8-track player and 150 MPH speedometer display. Exterior trim includes front bumper guards and dual chrome outside mirrors, and the car rides on a set of Magnum 500-type 5-spoke wheels. The Hemi created a legend back in the day, and the GTX was an upscale model. Coupled together, this burgundy beast is unmatched.
F63 1970 Plymouth Cuda Convertible BS27N0B226003 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 $96,250 €83,125 Mid EV2 Tor Red over White The way Plymouth made it in 1970, there was a big market for the redesigned Cuda. After all, the new E-body platform was perfect for a sports-oriented package. For buyers who wanted the type of horsepower that this wonderful example features, the Cuda line was a separate performance designation from the Barracuda. With a grand total of over 48,000 Plymouth E-body units built for 1970, there were 548 Cuda convertibles produced, and this is one of 132 built with the 383 4-barrel/A727 automatic combination. Indeed, a no-expense-spared rotisserie refreshment was completed by a noted marque expert earlier in 2018 on this muscle car, and to specifications better than new. Under the sport hood is a balanced and blueprinted 383 CI V-8 engine with Edelbrock aluminum heads and roller rockers, Edelbrock intake and AFB-style carburetor, electronic ignition, Mopar Performance valve covers and air cleaner, and TTI exhaust featuring ceramic-coated headers. However, if you want to return the car to more exacting OEM specifications, the original engine components are included in this sale. It is backed by the automatic transmission, and the car features power brakes with front discs. Of course, the exterior is stunning, painted in EV2 Tor Red with a beautiful white interior and boot, scalloped hood with displacement callouts and hold-down pins, color-keyed dual sport mirrors, rocker moldings, Go-Wing spoiler and a black hockey stripe. Inside, this car is equipped with factory power windows, the A01 light group, plus bucket seats with center console and Slap-Stik shifter. The Rallye instrument cluster is also here. The finishing touch on this car are Rallye wheels that host modern BF Goodrich T/A radial tires, coupling the best of both old and new. This example is one that is ready for the street or show field and will present itself spectacularly in any environment.
F64 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster E54S003851 $75,000.00 $95,000.00 $67,100 €57,950 -11% Pennant Blue over Cream. This restored 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is one of 3,640 built in the second year of Corvette production and one of only 300 finished in Pennant Blue, all of which were completed with the same tan removable soft top, matching tan interior and red-painted steel wheels with full-sized two-bar spinner wheel covers seen here. After producing the first 300 Corvettes in 1953 at the Flint, Michigan, assembly plant in a temporary facility, Corvette production was moved to a renovated plant in St. Louis, Missouri, in December 1953. Each fiberglass Corvette body comprised 30 major parts and another 32 that were considered minor pieces, all of which were supplied by the Molded Fiberglas Body Company of Ashtabula, Ohio, a leader in fiberglass production techniques in that budding field. While low initial demand for Corvettes was partly the result of the new car’s hefty price tag, it could also be attributed to Chevrolet’s limited marketing and what “Motor Trend” magazine dubbed its “eyedropper distribution” to A-list celebrities, many of whom were less than smitten by this comparatively rudimentary roadster. However, in June 1954, Chevrolet Sales Manager Bill Fish began promoting Corvette through the automotive press as running improvements were being made. The basic layout remained unchanged: the 235 CI Blue Flame Six OHV engine with three Carter side-draft carburetors mated to a Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission; independent front suspension with unequal-length A-arms, coil springs and stabilizer bar; a live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs; and 4-wheel hydraulic brakes. A new camshaft bumped the Blue Flame Six engine to 155 HP, and the choice of colors was expanded beyond Polo White to include Sportsman Red and this restored example’s Pennant Blue. Like practically all 1954 Corvettes, it is also optioned with directional turn signals, windshield washer, courtesy lights, signal-seeking AM radio, heater and parking-brake alarm. via RM Scottsdale ’11 $63k.
F65 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Replica 124379N695019 $75,000.00 $85,000.00 $60,500 €52,250 -19% Orange over Black. For years before GM lifted its restrictions on displacement in its mid-sized offerings, Chevrolet marketing prodigy Vince Piggins fielded complaints from Bowtie drag racers demanding more cubic inches to fend off the competition. Piggins finally came to the aid of his customers when he teamed with his dealer network in 1969 to create the all-aluminum 427-powered ZL1 Camaro. Only 69 were built, and their rarity and exotic all-aluminum big-block engines have pushed their values into the stratosphere. To GM’s credit, in 2008 they issued a limited-edition run of 427 ZL1-spec engines, making it possible to build a quality replica of the 1969 ZL1 Camaro at a fraction of the cost of buying a genuine original. The 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 replica offered here is a faithful reproduction that began with an X44-code car that was recently given a frame-off restoration to concours condition. Finished in striking Hugger Orange over superb sheet metal, it was fitted with No. 101/427 of the 2008 Limited Edition ZL1 boasting an aluminum engine block, GM Performance aluminum heads and Bowtie aluminum intake manifold. The aluminum 427 big block was backed with a Muncie M21 close-ratio 4-speed and 12-bolt Positraction rear end. Other mechanical specifications include power steering, power front disc brakes and correct chambered exhaust. Like the originals, the only outward signs of the car’s exotic nature are front and rear spoilers, a functional cowl-induction hood scoop and a blue bow tie in the grille. One deviation from the original ZL1 presentation is the placement of “427” badges on the car’s front fenders, letting everyone know what they are up against. Of course, no ZL1 Camaro would be complete without body-color-matching steel wheels and Goodyear Polyglas GT tires. The black interior is also just as it should be, featuring bucket seats, console and radio delete, a Hurst shifter, center fuel gauge and an in-dash tachometer.
F67 1941 Plymouth P12 Special Deluxe Woody Wagon 11383336 $90,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Light Beige and wood over Maroon. Hidden in a barn for 47 years, this 1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe Woody Wagon retains its original wood in spite of a nut-and-bolt restoration. One of only 5,594 built in 1941, a downdraft carburetor feeds the 201 CI inline 6-cylinder engine spinning a 3-speed manual transmission. The Cream paint gleams, offset by the expanse of brightwork, the black vinyl roof covering and, of course, the exquisite woodwork adorning the flanks. Imagine building one of these back in the day—all the handwork involved in sanding, tongue-and-groove joinery, grain matching and aligning, and affixing the wood to the steel structure. They truly are masterpieces. This one features a third-row bench seat, chrome driver’s mirror, chrome hubcaps and trim rings trimmed in red decorating body-color-matched steel wheels, and a red interior that lends a lot of verve to an already vivacious automobile. The dashboard is a testament to Art Deco styling, with gentle curves, subtle chrome trim, a tan gauge cluster and fabulous fonts entirely reminiscent of the era. The white steering wheel is not only stylish, but also helps keep temperatures to a minimum. Of course, Woody Wagons are always associated with the beach lifestyle and surfing, but there is something remarkably elegant about this Plymouth, an aura, a look, a conservative, upscale image that seems charmingly allergic to the clichés. It would be perfect during the Holiday Season with a Christmas tree attached to the roof, though. The P12 Special Deluxe was the top of the line model for 1941, the P11 one step below offering more utilitarian features and comforts. Interestingly, the economy was so strong in 1941 that Plymouth sold more upscale P12s than P11s in all body styles. Plymouth ads proclaimed, “The One for ’41,” and indeed, Plymouth sales reflected that confidence. Today, though, finding a P12 in good condition can be a challenge, let alone a Woody sporting its original wood in such condition as this one.
F68 1964 Sunbeam Tiger Mark I Roadster B9471113 $85,000.00 $95,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White over Black. This first-year 1964 Sunbeam Tiger Mk I Roadster is a well-kept example of this popular Anglo-American hybrid finished in white with a black interior and top and featuring the 260 CI version of the Ford small-block V-8. Founded in 1905 by John Marston and business partner Maxwell Maberly-Smith, the Sunbeam Motor Car Company initially produced cars based on a Peugeot design. The company won worldwide acclaim in the ‘20s and ‘30s with a series of racing and speed-record machines, but for years after being absorbed by Rootes, few enthusiasts associated the Sunbeam brand with anything resembling a performance vehicle. That changed—albeit only barely—when Rootes approved production of the Sunbeam Alpine roadster in 1959, a sporting 4-cylinder two-seater with a refined ride and interior and such amenities as roll-up side windows. By then, American manufacturers were actively appealing to the performance market, a fact noticed by West Coast Rootes Group sales manager Ian Garrad. After discussing a V-8-powered Alpine with famed Rodder and racer Doane Spencer, in 1962 Garrad turned to Carroll Shelby, whose Ford-engined Cobra was already attracting attention. Shelby’s resulting prototype was fitted with the same 260 CI Galaxie engine that powered the first 75 Cobras—limited to 141 HP versus the Cobra’s 260—backed by a T-10 4-speed and a shortened Galaxie rear axle. Garrad also approached Shelby’s chief engineer and driver Ken Miles to build a prototype, but the Shelby-prepared car proved the better of the two, its engine set back enough to allow room for the proper Ford cooling system and its steering box replaced with an MGA rack-and-pinion assembly. The Ford 260-powered Sunbeam Tiger debuted in 1964, another Shelby creation that has become highly collectible. Upgraded with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake and dual exhaust, this 1964 Sunbeam Tiger Mk I features a Lecarra wood-rimmed steering wheel, Jaeger instruments, bumper guards, a driver’s mirror and LAT 70 aluminum wheels with LAT 75 spinners.
F69 1965 Shelby Cobra Replica by Backdraft AE9BMAAH5J1MT1002 $65,000.00 $85,000.00 $67,100 €57,950 Mid Red and White over Beige. The pop song “Hey, Little Cobra!” was probably not written about this car. Drop in a 480 HP big-block, and you have a KING Cobra, and this Backdraft Racing Shelby Cobra replica strikes fearlessly and without hesitation. This is a beautiful rendering of one of the most desirable cars of the postwar American era, but beyond that, this build is a 2018 Iconic Edition by this firm. Showing a mere 121 miles since its completion, it features numerous advances from Carroll Shelby’s original street serpents. Nonetheless, underneath the hood is a Ford Racing 427 CI engine similar to the original, with brushed-aluminum Cobra-denoted accessories such as the air cleaner and valve covers, plus a Holley carburetor and MSD ignition. Spent horsepower rumbles through ceramic-coated headers to chromed side exhaust pipes. A Tremec T5 5-speed transmission backs that up. Backdraft’s version shines in its selection of modern handling upgrades that include a BMW E36 layout with independent rear suspension and BMW 4-wheel disc brakes. The color combination is stunning from any angle, dominated by Monterey Red Metallic with contrasting white stripes and a special-order beige leather bucket-seat interior with diamond stitching. Upgrade work continues here, with the wood-rimmed steering wheel, optional glovebox, the optional 4-point competition-related seat-belt harness with quick release, and centered Auto Meter gauges. The floor shift is chromed, and a German leather dash is color-matched to the upholstery. A driver’s side hoop-design chrome roll bar completes the old-school look with a touch of driver-minded security, and even the trunk is carpeted. Finally, on all four corners are 18-inch knock-off design multi-spoke wheels in two-tone metallic finishes, and modern blackwall rubber whose efficacy was unheard of in the 1960s. If you are bitten by the need for speed, there is no better anti-venom.
F70 1970 Dodge Challenger Resto Mod JH29G0E109189 $100,000.00 $140,000.00 $110,000 €95,000 Mid Viper Snake Skin Green over Black. Designed and assembled by the talents at PDT Motorsports in Oakdale, California, this 1970 Dodge Challenger mixes the inspired styling of the original Dodge pony car with the modern powertrain that made the second-generation Challenger a sales and performance winner right from its 2008 introduction. This is an outstanding demonstration of the Resto Modder’s craft, an assemblage of subtle styling modifications overlaying a wide array of mechanical and technical upgrades, the most important of which is the Dodge Gen III 6.1L Hemi engine hidden within. Packaged with Kooks stainless-steel tube headers and Magnaflow mufflers, it drives 425 HP through Chrysler’s sturdy 5-speed automatic transmission. A Be Cool aluminum radiator with twin electric fans and air-conditioning compressor, Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes, power steering and Viper alarm are among the car’s many upgrades. Highly regarded Sierra Auto Restorations of Sonora, California, carefully massaged the Challenger’s body shell, maintaining such original details as the pop-open fuel-filler cap and dual exhaust outlets in the lower rear valence, and added unique custom mirrors with integrated turn signals, a T/A-style rear spoiler and hooded Dakota Digital automatic headlights to achieve the look of the contemporary Challenger. The glittering 2010 Dodge Viper Snake Skin Green paint is a testament to Sierra Auto Restoration’s well-earned reputation for show-winning finishes. The Challenger’s interior builds on the roominess of the original with abundant use of black leather, which is used on the dash pad, door panels, bucket seats, Flaming River billet steering wheel and the custom-built center console. Further unique touches include power windows, a Lokar shifter, Auto Meter Cobalt tach and speedometer, 2010 Camaro gauges, a tilt steering column, custom sound system with remote control and DroneMobile keyless entry, GPS and window controls. Competition-style modular billet wheels and low-profile rubber provide the finishing touch to this well-crafted Challenger Resto Mod.
F71 1935 Lincoln Model K V12 Roadster K3948 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Yellow over Yellow. One of a mere 30 produced in 1935, this Lincoln Model K V-12 Roadster with gorgeous LeBaron coachwork and a jaunty color scheme is a CCCA Full Classic and winner of an AACA National First prize in 1977. Introduced in 1931 as a replacement for the aging Model L, the Model K entered the highest echelon of the automotive market in the early days of the Great Depression on a new 145-inch wheelbase chassis using a 385 CI version of the Model L’s V-8 engine modified with a 2-barrel Stromberg carburetor, higher compression and other tweaks to produce 120 HP. In 1932, Edsel Ford doubled down on his vision of offering the ultimate luxury and performance automobile, splitting the K into two ranges: the V-8 powered KA, built on a 136-inch wheelbase, and the majestic KB, built on a 145-inch wheelbase and powered by an all-new 448 CI V-12 engine. By 1934, the choice of engines had been cut to a single 414 CI version of the V-12, and in 1935, the A and B designations were dropped and significant design changes were introduced. The passenger area was moved forward 11 inches for better weight distribution; five rubber engine mounts, an improved cam design and needle-bearing roller tappets provided quieter operation, and new synchros made easier work of shifting the 3-speed manual transmission. Although both wheelbases were still available, the 136-inch chassis with LeBaron coachwork has remained the more popular with collectors who prefer its more compact sportiness. Dressed to turn heads in bright yellow with a dark yellow beltline and blue pinstriping, this special-order Model 542 LeBaron rumble-seat roadster is distinguished by its 17-inch wire wheels with wide whitewall tires, dual side mounts with steel covers, Guide Super Ray fog lamps, side-louvered hood Greyhound mascot and a rear luggage rack. Finished inside with beautiful tan leather upholstery, a two-gauge instrument cluster, dual mirrors, a locking glovebox and rear-seat foot rest, this is a singularly impressive example of the first of the great V-12-powered Lincolns.
F72 1957 Chevrolet 210 Convertible Resto mod B57B224655 $120,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black and Red over Black. For 25 years, the Roadster Shop of Mundelein, Illinois, has turned out one award-winning showpiece after another across a broad range of genres from concours-quality restorations to conceptual, one-of-a-kind customs. Operating in a dedicated 30,000-square-foot facility, the Roadster Shop’s team of talented professionals can provide each customer with a leading-edge vehicle built to the highest standards that perfectly expresses their individual vision. This 1957 Chevrolet 210 Resto Mod Convertible is a rolling showcase for the team of craftsmen responsible for the Roadster Shop’s stellar reputation. The ’57 Chevrolet 210’s signature features were massaged and shaved into a neat presentation wrapped in mirror-like two-tone red and black lacquer, and beautifully accented with satin silver accents in place of the original chrome and brightwork. The smoothed frame received the same careful finishing and detailing, its red paint polished to the same level as the coachwork. Fitted with custom body mounts and tube reinforcements, it carries tubular front A-arms, power rack-and-pinion steering, Heidts 4-link rear suspension and RideTech coilover shocks with Hyperco springs at all four corners. A custom stainless fuel tank feeds the fuel-injected 572/620 HP Chevrolet big-block V-8, which is equipped with an Edelbrock aluminum intake, Sanderson ceramic-coated headers with dual exhaust and a Billet Specialties Tru-Track pulley system fronted by an aluminum radiator with twin electric fans. A Tremec TKO600 5-speed manual transmission puts the power to the ground through a Ford 9-inch third member with 3.71 Positraction and 31-spline axles. The rolling stock comprises Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes behind 19-inch front and 20-inch rear gloss black Intro Aurora wheels wearing Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Custom modifications and superb upholstery and detailing highlight the custom interior, including a fabricated instrument cluster, tilt steering column, Vintage Air, power windows and top, and a custom console housing a red “Start” button and controls for the Clarion sound system. This is the Roadster Shop at its best.
F73 1960 Mercury Parklane Convertible 0Z55M506441 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 $115,500 €99,749 Mid Medium Javelin Bronze over Bronze interior and Black top. One of just 1,525 produced in 1960, this Mercury Parklane convertible was professionally restored to concours-winning standards. Introduced in 1958 as the new luxury flagship of the Mercury brand, the Parklane rode on its own 125-inch wheelbase with a stretched body incorporating the toned-down styling adopted after the flop of the overwrought Turnpike Cruiser. After expanding to 128 inches in 1959, the Parklane adopted the standard Mercury’s 126-inch measure, but there remained plenty of luxury and power to set it above the rest of the lineup. The 430/310 HP Marauder V-8 engine was the largest passenger-car engine in the industry, giving the Parklane impressive and easy cruising power in concert with the Multi-Drive Merc-O-Matic dual-range 3-speed automatic transmission and flexible 2.91 rear axle ratio. At more than $4,000, the Parklane convertible was the priciest of the Mercs and one of the best-looking convertibles of the era. Its Panoramic Skylight windshield was both a wraparound and “wrapover” design offering unparalleled forward vision, and its wraparound Plexiglas rear window was the only one of its kind. Still presenting in superb condition throughout with its Medium Javelin Bronze paint, black power top and bronze interior, this 1960 Mercury Parklane Convertible also boasts superb undercarriage detailing. Its wealth of amenities includes power steering and brakes, power windows and seat, factory air conditioning, day/night inside mirror, dual outside mirrors with driver’s remote, pushbutton radio and a bronze top boot. Excellent bright trim and fender skirts, full-size wheel covers and wide whitewall tires enhance the Parklane’s clean, elegant styling. This Parklane has earned AACA Junior and Senior First Place awards and a Grand National First in 2012. Soon after its completion in 2008 it won the International Mercury Owner’s Association (IMOA) National Best of Show, a feat it repeated in 2015, which serves as testament to the outstanding quality of its restoration and subsequent care.
F74.1 The SRT Demon Offering 101142 & 101045 $250,000.00 $275,000.00 $264,000 €227,999 Mid Two cars, both in Tor Red over Black. Sometimes it has been said that you cannot have it all. When the New York International Auto Show was set ablaze by the announcement of the 840 HP Dodge Demon in April 2017, the numbers were made known for how many of these cars would be sold worldwide: 3,300. As a result, there would be a lot of enthusiasts who would not get the opportunity to buy one. For those unfortunate would-be owners, Mecum Auctions will present another opportunity to get in on the Demon action in a big way, with the chance for one lucky buyer to own two of these no-longer-produced Dodges in like-new condition. The Demon was a race-oriented vehicle from its inception, built to go fast with no excuses. Offered here are serial numbers 1045 and 1142 of the 3,000 units produced for the domestic market. The duo is close to identical in features, but different enough that you could easily decide that one deserves to be played with and one should remain in its as-built configuration, or perhaps give one as a gift to your spouse and you can play together. After all, both retain the dealer-prep plastic and tape, with No. 1042 showing 43 miles and No. 1142 showing 77 miles, basically like-new cars. So what was it about this package that caught people’s attention from that first minute? How about the supercharged 6.2L engine, whose exclusive tuning allowed it to move between a 91-octane fuel driver-mode to a race-mode 840 HP 100+ octane tune, becoming the most powerful production car ever built? This was backed by real-world numbers, like 9-second quarter-mile times and a 2.3-second 0-60 MPH acceleration. Then there was that Guinness World Record on the highest production-car wheelstand, at 2.92 feet. The list goes on, but perhaps most telling was the follow-up announcement that there would be no production beyond the scheduled number of cars after this model year. You either got one (or two) in 2018, or you missed out forever. Demons came with a lot of standard equipment. The wide hood scoop and Air Catcher headlamps, the special graphics and trim, 4-wheel disc brakes, and the unique drag-mode suspension layout was created specifically for the hard-launch environment, but the car also delivered street functionality at the driver’s desire. Optional equipment for the Demon was available as well, but the most important of them is called the Drag Crate. This is a cargo-box full of equipment like the powertrain control module with high-octane engine calibration, front-runner track wheels, Demon-branded tools and more, configured to fit into a foam package designed to fit into the trunk when you want to drive to the racetrack. No self-respecting Demon owner would live without it, and you will get two of these, one for each vehicle, in this sale. About the cars themselves, No. 1142 shows the “most mileage” at 77 miles. The exclusive engine uses an iron block, aluminum heads, factory supercharger, and port fuel injection. This is backed by the trans-brake-equipped ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and a 3.09-ratio limited-slip differential. The suspension was designed for extreme use, with Bilstein shocks, front and rear antiroll bars, a multilink rear suspension with coil springs, and drag-mode suspension activation. Painted TorRed with black interior, this car has the Comfort Audio Group, rides on 18-inch aluminum wheels with factory Nitto tires, and is bad to the bone. There is only one major exterior difference between car 1142 and 1045, and that is the blackout treatment, which covers the hood, roof and decklid. Showing a mere 43 miles, 1045 too retains its dealer plastic prep intact and the identical Demon engine combination, Comfort Audio option and the race-bred adjustable suspension. This TorRed beauty may be the Saturday night special of the pair. Maybe your neighbor was lucky enough to get one. We bet none of them were able to get two. Keep up with the Jones and anyone else with this scary-fast duo of the highest-horsepower production cars ever built.
F75 1967 Scarbo SVF1 Prototype 001-P $105,000.00 $135,000.00 $81,400 €70,300 -22% Red single seater. The 1967 Formula 1 season is remembered by those who were there as the Golden Age of Grand Prix racing, its cars and drivers among the most iconic of any era. The beautiful Scarbo Performance SVF1 evokes memories of the period in a fabulous track machine modeled after the magnificent 1967 Formula 1 racer campaigned by the boys from Maranello, Italy. The first prototype built, this is Serial No. 001-P, one of just two examples now in existence in a production series limited to just one car per year. At first, look the SVF1 could easily be mistaken for a Grand Prix car of the period that inspired it. Weighing in at a svelte 1,280 pounds and powered by a 425 HP GM Performance all-aluminum LS series V-8 engine mated to a 5-speed H-pattern transaxle, it serves up a level of performance that is more than a match for any Grand Prix car of the era. Its handcrafted aluminum bodywork closely replicates that of a certain 1967 Italian Formula 1 entry right down to its blood-red paint, but it covers a chassis constructed of 4130 chrome-moly tube steel engineered to up-to-the-minute standards for the ultimate in safety and performance. Riding on a fully adjustable and expertly designed wishbone suspension, the Scarbo SVF1 rolls on Avon historic racing slicks fitted to gold-anodized 6061 T6 forged-aluminum wheels closely modeled after the 1967 Italian Formula 1 entries. Adding to the overall vintage presentation is the SVF1’s “bundle-of-snakes” exhaust that produces the same piercing note as the original. A sensational and evocative racer engineered to provide a driving experience like no other, SVF1 001-P qualifies for and has raced in both SVRA and HMSA competition; it qualified on the pole in the highly exclusive Thermal Club Invitational, finished in the top five at the Coronado Festival of Speed and competed in the Vintage Nationals at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas.
F76 1971 Chevrolet Corvette LS6 Coupe 194371S113597 $150,000.00 $200,000.00 $140,250 €121,124 -6% Sunflower Yellow over Black. There were many options if you were in the market for a performance car in 1971, but the Chevrolet Corvette was the top choice for many buyers. You could opt for a coupe or convertible—21,801 combined examples were built—and America’s Sports Car was offered with four different engine options, the ultimate performance package one could order being the LS6 engine. For $1,221 you could check the box for the cast-iron 454 CI big-block topped off by a Holley 850 CFM carburetor. This combination produced heart-pounding excitement with 425 HP and a robust 475 lb-ft of torque with 9.0:1 compression. Even though this tire-scorching engine was available, only 188 were produced in 1971. This 1971 Sunflower Yellow LS6 Coupe being offered was sold new at Emmert Chevrolet in Detroit, Michigan. Ordered with a M22 Rock Crusher 4-speed transmission and a 4.11 Positraction differential out back, this helped keep the Rally wheels wrapped in Goodyear F70x15 whitewall tires on the pavement. Additionally, this Corvette was ordered with several creature-comfort options including power steering and power brakes. On the inside you will find a black leather interior with a tilt and telescopic steering column and an AM/FM stereo, though the symphony emanating from the engine and through the exhaust may provide a more-than-ideal soundtrack. It has a fair amount of documentation, with not only the shipper but the dealer invoice as well. It has been shown across the country and has received multiple awards during its ownership. This Corvette has been awarded prestigious Bloomington Gold Certification, multiple NCRS Top Flight accolades and the MCACN Triple Diamond Award. If you’re looking for a rare performance car in a bold finish and outstanding award pedigree, look no further than this LS6 Corvette.
F77 1996 Dodge Viper GTS 1B3ER69E8TV200159 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue and White over Black. The brute force of the first-generation Dodge Viper was tempered with refinement and improved performance as the American supercar drove into its second generation. Case in point is this 1996 Dodge Viper GTS Coupe with 32,163 original miles on the odometer, one of only 1,166 examples built in the first year of production. Classic long-nose, short-deck, closed-roof styling was an intentional nod to the famously successful Pete Brock Shelby American Cobra Daytona competition coupes. A double-bubble roof for helmet clearance, Viper Blue pearl metallic paint and dual white stripes finish the fast-lap back to Sebring and Le Mans victories. The more powerful sequential-port fuel-injected 8.0L V-10 sent 450 HP at 5,200 RPM and 490 lb-ft of torque at 3,700 RPM through a 6-speed manual transmission and limited-slip rear differential. The stronger and stiffer coupe body was outfitted with revised dual A-arm coil-spring independent suspension, power rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel vented disc brakes to translate the power bump into more competent handling on road or track. The Viper GTS coupe could run from 0-60 MPH in 4 seconds, dispatch the quarter mile in just more than 12 seconds and run flat out at over 185 MPH. Uncompromising ergonomics were relegated to history with the Viper GTS coupe. Power windows and locks, driver-centric instrumentation and six-speaker Alpine AM/FM CD sound system join bolstered black leather bucket seats and air conditioning for relative luxury compared to the plastic-side-window first generation. The rear-exit stainless-steel dual exhaust system was a marked improvement over the previous leg-roasting side-exit arrangement. Improved flow and sound encourages 7,000 RPM tachometer redline run-ups and adhesion-limit testing of the original staggered-width 5-spoke alloy wheels and low-profile performance tires combination.
F78 1930 Cadillac 353 Roadster 416235 $125,000.00 $175,000.00 $83,600 €72,200 -33% Silver and Dark Red over Red leather. Cadillac was founded in 1902 when Henry Ford left his self-named company after a dispute with his investors. Under the engineering guidance of Henry M. Leland, the new Cadillac would quickly carve a place for itself as a world-class luxury-car manufacturer. By the end of the 1920s, Cadillacs (now a subsidiary of General Motors) boasted one of the greatest engines of its generation—the 353 CI, overhead-valve, flathead V-8—and a fresh new design genius by the name of Harley Earl. In 1930, what was arguably the prewar pinnacle of this combination was offered in the form of the Cadillac 353. Built on a long, 140-inch chassis, the 353 was motivated by this 353 CI L-head V-8, which produced a then-stunning 96 HP. But, in an automotive-industry first, this horsepower was now smoothly transmitted to the wheels via a 3-speed gearbox fitted with synchromesh and driving through a three-quarter floating rear axle. However, as technically sophisticated as the 353 was for its time, the 353 is perhaps even more revered for its bewildering number of coachwork variations and options. Cadillac 353s could be ordered in more than 50 different body styles, with seven standard closed-coupe variations offered by Fisher Custom and another 11 basic body options offered by Fleetwood Special Custom. The example on offer is an early 1930 (registered as a 1929) 353, with a 2/4 Fleetwood Roadster body and rumble seat. Finished in the striking combination of two-tone silver and dark red with dark red feature lines, this 353 also sports a red leather interior and tan convertible top. Other luxurious options on this example include painted wire wheels with Firestone wide whitewall tires, Pilot Ray driving light, dual side-mounted spare wheels and an optional luggage rack. Only offered from 1930 to 1932, this Cadillac 353 Roadster represents the very finest of Cadillac’s offerings prior to World War II.
F79 1977 Shelby GT40 Mark II 50th Anniversary CSGT40P2068 $200,000.00 $250,000.00 $115,500 €99,749 -42% Red and White over Black. To celebrate the original GT40’s 1-2-3 victory at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, Shelby American announced in 2016 the production of 20 continuation-series MkIIs available in three color combinations—black/silver, blue/white and red/white—like the historic race cars. This 50th Anniversary GT40 MkII is painted in the red with white stripes livery used by driver Dan Gurney. Ordered in left-hand drive, the car is equipped with a 427 CI V-8 engine with 4-barrel carburetor and “bundle-of-snake” headers, 5-speed transaxle, period-correct engine-oil cooler, aluminum radiator, Bilstein shocks, H&R springs and 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes. Built in collaboration with Superformance, the new big-block GT40 was constructed on the original-style steel monocoque chassis with fully independent suspension and measures 163 inches long and 40 inches high, the exact dimensions of the originals. When built in 2016, Shelby American states that the majority of parts could be interchanged with the actual 1966 race cars, including the same dual 10-gallon gas tanks in stainless steel and gold 15-inch Halibrand pin-drive wheels. The black interior is also correct with original-style seats with rivets, Smiths instruments and Willans harnesses. However, the interiors are updated with modern conveniences like an adjustable pedal box, air conditioning, pushbutton start and 12-volt auxiliary input. Externally, the MkII is identical to the originals with muscular front fenders, a rounded nose, beefed-up haunches with large cooling vents, radiator heat-exhaust vents in the hood and even the Gurney bubble on top of the driver’s-side door. Also included are vertical wind deflectors and Dayglo Red quick jacks. Considered by Shelby as a continuation build, this Dan Gurney Edition 50th Anniversary GT40 MkII is a stunning tribute to the original GT40 program.
F80 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 194676S118858 $100,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue over Black. The mid-year Sting Ray design of the Corvette was well-received by the press and the public in its 1963 introduction, and even more so when it was given big-block power two model years later. While these cars could be had with 427 CI engines of various configurations before being superseded in 1970, this stunning example takes that another step forward with upgrades by Guldstrand Motorsports of Burbank, California. Beneath the vented hood today is a 454 CI Chevrolet crate engine rated at 440 HP, dressed with quality chrome engine accessories and equipped with a Vintage Air A/C compressor. More importantly, what was the mandated 4-speed transmission option of 1966 for big-blocks has been interchanged with a Turbo 400 automatic transmission. If you desire a big-inch Corvette with OEM manners that does not require footwork or gear changes, this car is ready for you. Furthermore, it has a freeway-friendly 3.36-geared rear end and a Dewitt’s aluminum radiator for cooling security. Covered in proper code-976 Nassau Blue paint with a black soft top, this Corvette has had newer body weather stripping, chrome and stainless trim installed, and features the desirable knock-off turbine-finned cast wheels. It has benefited from newer front and rear suspension parts, tie rods, driveshaft and side exhaust, with a detailed undercarriage for show use. Power steering and power brakes are also on this California vehicle. Optioned with Vintage Air, the interior is all the classic accessories, and big-block handling assists come from both power steering and power brakes. The tires use a thin whitewall design in keeping with the factory appearance as well. A 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible with these adaptations is ideal for the person who appreciates the ease of drivability using a big-block/automatic driveline. Style and pride of ownership await you.
F81 2002 Bentley Azure Convertible SCBZK25E92CX01111 $100,000.00 $120,000.00 $99,000 €85,500 -1% Yellow over Black leather. The Bentley Azure made its road-going debut in 1995 and this yellow and black leather example is one of an estimated 78 Azure handcrafted into existence at Mulliner Park Ward in 2002. The peerless convertible carries the Bentley heritage of handcrafted luxury and open-top motoring performance that stretches back to fire-breathing road and race cars created by W.O. Bentley in the early 1920s. The Azure waits for its next owner to enjoy its unique blend of modern high performance, hand-crafted luxury and a long tradition of Bentley racing victory. The twin-turbocharged Bentley 6.75L Mulliner V-8 engine was factory rated for 385 HP at 4,000 RPM and serves the full measure of its 553 lb-ft of torque at just 2,000 RPM. The 4-speed automatic transmission directs power to the road through the rear wheels. Independent front and rear suspension with speed-proportional power steering in concert with 4-wheel ABS-equipped ventilated disc brakes and 5-spoke chrome-finish alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tires deliver confident road control. The Azure is capable of reaching 60 MPH in 5.6 seconds and has a top speed in excess of 170 MPH. The body speaks of Bentley elegance and the power convertible top opens to reveal a handcrafted black leather interior finished to unmatched standards in Crewe, England. Power-operated seats with position memory join power locks, windows, remote mirrors, trunk release, air conditioning and CD stereo for pushbutton convenience, comfort and entertainment. Brushed and engine-turned aircraft aluminum accents the dash, console and door panels. In 2014, the Azure inspired an official Bentley men’s fragrance infused with a powerful and complex mix of citrus and woody notes. The Azure convertible is a rare ride that announces to the world that you have arrived in an intoxicating combination of style, power and comfort that few other cars can ever hope to equal.
F82 1957 Chevrolet Nomad VC57F195859 $50,000.00 $75,000.00 $66,000 €57,000 Mid Surf Green over Medium Green. Inspired by the 1954 Motorama concept car, Chevrolet introduced the Nomad in 1955 as a production model. The Nomad combined the practicality and virtues of a full-size station wagon with the sportiness and optional V-8 performance of a Corvette. Many Bowtie enthusiasts consider the 1957 model, the last of the famed Tri-Five era, as the best of the breed, due in part to the availability of the larger 283 CI version of the classic small-block Chevrolet V-8. As part of this car’s comprehensive restoration, this rebuilt 283 has been treated to a number of performance upgrades. Under the hood this includes polished accessories to dress up the engine compartment, custom headers and dual exhaust. The engine is mated to a Turbo 350 3-speed automatic transmission. Power is transmitted to the pavement via an upgraded 10-bolt rear end. Power front disc brakes were installed along with U.S. Alloy 5-spoke wheels, 18-inch front and 20-inch in the rear, giving this Nomad a menacing rake. To make this Nomad even more desirable and drivable for more than occasional use, it’s equipped with a Vintage Air climate-control system. The interior has been re-trimmed in correct Bel Air Medium Green vinyl with black and green cloth inserts that contrast nicely with its Surf Green paint and the upscale Bel Air chrome and stainless-steel exterior trim. With its updated drivetrain with modern mechanicals, this is a car that is meant to be driven anywhere at any time. The full-size station wagon dominated the driveways of America’s suburbs for almost four decades. Most were mundane family haulers with four practical doors that could transport an entire Little League team in a pinch. Chevrolet’s Nomad bucked that trend, and in doing so, has achieved iconic status.
F83 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod VC56F130998 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red and White over Tan. The wolf in sheep’s clothing adage is certainly present with this gorgeous 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air. The top trim level of the brand’s production-model sedans back in the day, the sporty Bel Air was rapid in carving out a niche for many buyers as “the car to own.” However, factory horsepower in what is considered the second year of the Tri-Five era was limited to variations on the small-block Chevrolet, then displacing 265 CI. This car, featuring a frame-off refreshing with minor exterior changes, not only upped that ante considerably, but has other changes throughout that will thrill its new owner. Underneath the hood is a 454 CI Chevrolet big-block engine, highly detailed with a Holley carburetor painted to match the body, chrome accessories, a polished intake manifold and smoothed firewall. For drivability, the TH400 transmission behind it is equipped with a Gear Vendors overdrive unit, and a Ford 9-inch Positraction-type rear end with 31-spline axles backs it up. Handling is aided by 4-wheel power disc brakes and power steering. On the outside, this car wears a classic two-tone paint design done in bright red and white colors with polished stainless steel, new chrome, smoothed bumpers and custom-tubbed rear fender wells. The sense of deluxe upgrading continues inside this automobile as well, since it now has power windows, doors, locks and trunk, with beautiful upholstery created in Ultraleather materials. In addition to the Bel Air script lettering and optional clock, the color-matched OEM dash layout uses a Classic Industries gauge package while a custom consolette below supports controls for things like the Vintage Air system and the remote Pioneer stereo, mounted inside the refinished trunk. With a nod toward individuality, this car rides on custom-reversed American Torque Thrust wheels, wearing modern low-profile tires. Certainly better than new in many aspects, this is an enjoyable Street Rod par excellence, needing nothing more than your willingness to desire its ownership.
F84 1956 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod E56S001512 $110,000.00 $130,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Red. This 1956 Chevrolet Corvette Resto Mod is a sharply executed build that takes its earlier frame-off restoration to a new standard of show-stopping looks and performance. Originally equipped with the 265 small-block V-8 engine and base 3-speed manual transmission, it now moves under the power of the outstanding LS6 all-aluminum engine Chevrolet produced for the fifth-generation Corvette Z06, a marvelous powerplant rated at 405 HP and 400 lb-ft of torque—plenty of power for the comparatively svelte 1956 Corvette. With an aluminum radiator and twin electric fans keeping temperatures under control, the LS6 is backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and a heavy-duty narrowed Moser Ford 9-inch rear end, the latter suspended with a Jim Meyers Racing Products 4-bar setup using coilover shocks with adjustable mounting points. JMR also supplied the front suspension, which features 7/8-inch by .156-inch wall upper A-arms and 1-inch by .156-inch wall lower A-arms. In addition to Flaming River power rack-and-pinion steering, this adjustable front suspension utilizes aluminum adjustable coilover shocks, also with adjustable upper attachment points to help tailor the car’s stance. Wilwood’s power-assisted 4-wheel disc brakes give outstanding stopping power. Finished in iconic black with silver coves, the Corvette’s exterior features little in the way of modifications, namely Adjure headlight units with high-intensity discharge lamps and 18-inch chrome Coddington wheels fitted with BF Goodrich Pilot Sport tires that fit perfectly within the confines of the car’s wheel wells. The red interior is also mostly faithful to the original, but with subtle upgrades that include custom leather seats from Al Knoch, Auto Meter Phantom white-face gauges, Hot Rod Air, a custom factory-look sound system, and a 15-inch leather-wrapped steering wheel on an adjustable chromed steering column. This splendid 1956 Corvette’s overall presentation is show quality throughout, with superb paint, chrome and brightwork, and very nice fit and finish.
F85 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster 11304410006008 $65,000.00 $85,000.00 $57,200 €49,400 -12% Forrest Green and Tan over Bamboo. The recipient of a comprehensive restoration completed in 2017, this 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster is a very attractive example of the last two-seat Mercedes-Benz whose origins were found in the venerated Super Light racers and road cars of the 1950s. The 280SL was the final development of the line of mid-displacement inline-6-engined coupes and convertibles designed to bridge the yawning gap between the extraordinary 300SL and the diminutive 4-cylinder 190SL roadster. The mechanically advanced and more luxurious 280SL retained the attractive Paul Braque styling first seen in the 1963 230SL unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, including its distinctive “Pagoda” roof. Its most important distinction, however, was the M130 inline-6 engine under the forward-opening hood. A Bosch fuel-injected 2.8L version of the M180 inline-6 engine first seen in 1951, the M130 was the most refined of the breed, developing 170 HP thanks to an increase in bore size and improvements to the Bosch fuel-injection system. The 280SL’s mechanical refinements were comprehensive; they included Mercedes-Benz’s advanced 4-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs and unequal A-arms, independent rear suspension with low-pivot swing axles, trailing arms and coil springs, and 4-wheel power-assisted hydraulic disc brakes. Following Mercedes-Benz tradition, the 280SL was the epitome of high-quality production standards: high-quality materials, excellent fit and finish, and designed-in durability, all found in this exceptional restored 1969 example. Its Forest Green paint and Bamboo leather interior are a particularly elegant pairing augmented with excellent chrome and brightwork and outstanding detailing throughout. New suspension components and an overhaul to the brake system were performed as part of the restoration of this Mercedes classic, which includes both the soft top and Pagoda hardtop, air conditioning, a Blaupunkt radio, tools and correct Mercedes-Benz wheel covers over whitewall radial tires.
F86 1997 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster ZA9RU37BXVLA12790 $135,000.00 $175,000.00 $107,250 €92,625 -21% Giallo Fly over Nero leather. This spectacular 1997 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster is sure to be desirable to the discerning buyer. Painted in yellow with a black leather interior, this car is one of 132 produced between 1997 and 1999 for the U.S. market, and its main attraction is both its near-sinister appearance and the viscous traction (VT) all-wheel-drive system. This adaptation could direct up to 25 percent of the torque to the front wheels to aid traction when rear-wheel slip was detected, significantly increasing the handling prowess of the vehicle. The roadster configuration further used an electrically operated targa top, which stored above the engine lid when not in service. Also altered from the fixed-top VT model was a revised front bumper and headlamp configuration, with a final top-speed rating of 202 MPH. Horsepower comes from the mid-mounted 5.7L/485 HP V-12 engine, with dual external air intakes and body-paint-matched valve covers. This transfers power through a 5-speed manual transmission and the special differential layout. A carbon-fiber rear wing works in conjunction with other body-fitted aero-stylings to keep the car tight to the pavement. Bold yellow Brembo brake calipers with Lamborghini script logo markings will be put to appropriate use as well. Inside the luxury interior is an upgraded Alpine stereo head unit with a JL audio amplifier, brushed suede-leather bucket seating and dash trim, performance-design seat belts, emergency window cranks and windshield head cushions. This car even uses carbon-fiber windshield wiper attachments. Named for a legendary bull of the 19th century, the Diablo VT was never a car for the masses, built for the serious enthusiast who respects its fearsome capabilities. With the owner’s manual and tool kit both included, this Lamborghini Diablo VT is sure to continue its headstrong legacy under new ownership.
F87 1957 Chevrolet 150 Utility Sedan A57S288997 $65,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Onyx Black and India Ivory over Black vinyl. The 1957 Chevrolet is arguably one of the most readily identifiable American automobiles ever produced, and this 150 Utility Sedan is poised to leave a lasting impression. One of its most distinctive characteristics is the lack of a back seat, making it popular with traveling salesmen in its day. A mere 8,300 were built out of a total of 1,515,177 full-size Chevrolets produced that year, making it one of the rarest models offered in 1957. Finding an example such as this one some 60 years later is a feat in and of itself. The lack of a back seat allowed these road warriors to transport their samples inside the interior as well as the trunk. This 150 Utility Sedan is a true sleeper, its practicality lending to performance potential. Underneath its unassuming Onyx Black and India Ivory exterior that gives it something of the look of a stealthy, unmarked police car, this deliberately spartan model is equipped with the iconic 283 CI Chevrolet small-block V-8. This variant, with its dual Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetors hiding under the batwing air cleaner, produces healthy power. Combined with the utility sedan’s light weight, M21 4-speed transmission, Hurst shifter and 3.70 final drive ratio, this Q-ship provides spirited performance. The no-nonsense interior contains a split-bench seat upholstered in black grain-vinyl with cloth cobblestone inserts. The three-pod instrument cluster is augmented with a Chevrolet Performance tachometer and two additional gauges mounted underneath the dash to monitor the engine. As befitting its bare-bones approach, this car was delivered without the usual amenities, like an AM radio, heater, clock and lighter. These deletions make these cars all the more highly-prized decades later. The minimal brightwork, color-matched steel wheels and dog-dish hubcaps lend to the deliberately austere aesthetics. President Theodore Roosevelt famously said “speak softly and carry a big stick,” and this 150 Utility Sedan serves as an automotive embodiment of that mantra.
F88 1935 Ford Phaeton 18-90174 $45,000.00 $55,000.00 N/R Not sold Not sold N/A Rare among the great number of 1935 Fords, this phaeton underwent a faithful restoration that returned the open-cabin automobile to its original combination of fine-car style and V-8 performance. The phaeton features the rare side-curtain option with all side curtains included and is one of just more than 6,000 examples built of the 820,253 vehicles produced by Ford that same year. Early Ford V-8 production engine issues were relegated to the history books, and in June 1935, Ford built its two-millionth V-8 engine. With a single Stromberg 2-barrel carburetor, the 221 CI Ford V-8 churned out an impressive 85 HP for 1935, a 20 HP improvement over first-year engines. The detailed Ford flathead is backed up by a 3-speed manual transmission with floor shift for brisk performance. Chassis and suspension improvements brought a quieter measure of what Ford called its Centerpoise Ride. Longer, lower and sleeker sweptback style defined the 1935 Ford lineup, and the steel body is finished in tan with integrated parking lights in matching body-color headlamp housings. Lowering the wood-trimmed fabric top reveals a well-appointed phaeton interior refinished with factory-correct pattern seat and door-panel upholstery over body-color-matched tan carpeting. The optional 3-spoke banjo-type steering wheel sits over a painted dash with off-white-faced instrumentation and optional factory-issue radio in place of the ashtray. Special steel-spoke wheels are painted to match red beltline pinstriping and were among the last to be seen on new Ford cars before they were replaced by pressed-steel wheels for 1936. Whitewall tires put the rubber on the road with a trunk-mount-matching covered spare in case of roadside flat. There’s no question the phaeton is one sharp-looking car.
F89 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible 5662111238 $60,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue over Blue and White. One of the most striking examples of GM’s Motorama design influence can be seen in this 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible. From its “Dagmar” front bumpers to the jet-age tail fins, this car beautifully evoked the vision of style and luxury that GM Design Vice President Harley J. Earl had for the company’s top-level division. Competition was fierce for luxury cars in the early postwar period, with Ford raising the stakes with its new Continental Division and its lone offering, the Mark II. Chrysler’s Imperial Division also catered to the same clientele, though neither sold as many units as Cadillac. To help up the ante with its crosstown rivals, Cadillac added the Eldorado sub-series to the Model 62 series as new offerings for 1956. They were available in two body styles: the Eldorado Seville two-door hardtop and the Eldorado Biarritz convertible. Both were named for historically significant European cities, Seville, in Spain, and Biarritz, in France. Perched on a 129-inch wheelbase, the Eldorados measured an impressive 222.2 inches in overall length, making a bold statement wherever they went. This particular example is one of just 2,150 built that year and remains in remarkably original condition, with one repaint in the original Sonic Blue with a white soft top. It retains its factory-issue blue and white interior and features power steering and brakes, power window lifts, a power convertible top, clock and signal-seeking AM radio, as well as chrome-plated Sabre wheels mounting wide whitewall radial tires. The Biarritz’s powertrain consists of Cadillac’s top-performing engine that year, a dual-quad version of its 365 CI V-8 engine. With a 9.75:1 compression ratio, the engine developed 305 HP at 4,700 RPM, with 400 lb-ft of torque at 3,200. The engine features a pair of Carter carburetors and is topped by a “Batwing” air cleaner. Power is smoothly transferred to a 4-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission.
F90 1956 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible E56S003787 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red and White over Red. This multiple-award winning 1956 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has earned some of the most sought-after awards in the Corvette world. The 1956 Corvette represented the first major redesign of the original body style and the first fruits of engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov’s campaign to mold Corvette into the well-equipped sports car that would fulfill the promise he first saw in the 1953 Motorama show car. The new Corvette for 1956 featured the model’s first exterior door handles and locks, roll-up glass windows with optional power assist, conventional headlights and the side coves that would become a signature Corvette feature throughout the first generation. Horsepower in the base V-8 engine introduced the previous year was boosted from 195 HP at 5,000 RPM to 210 at 5,600 RPM, with a corresponding rise in peak torque from 260 lb-ft to 270. A higher-output 12-volt battery, adjustable passenger seat and available transistorized radio were other first-time Corvette features. A comprehensive restoration showing a believed-original 49,200 miles, this award-winning Corvette is finished in the iconic blend of two-tone Venetian Red with Polo White side coves, a beige soft top and red interior. Powered by the 265/210 HP V-8 and backed by a 3-speed manual transmission, it is nicely equipped with full-size wheel covers over wide whitewall tires, parking-brake alarm, heater and AM radio. This outstanding example’s honors include Bloomington Gold Certification and the NCRS Top Flight Award, the first two steps toward one of the Corvette community’s highest awards. Once attained, the car was registered to be judged for the Chevy Vettefest Gold Spinner Award; having met stringent standards in the areas of originality, condition and attention to detail for the Gold Spinner Award, in 2007 it culminated for the coveted Triple Crown, an accolade reserved for the elite cars of the Corvette hobby.
F91 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 194676S112675 $115,000.00 $130,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Mosport Green Metallic over Saddle leather. Chevrolet attracted a whole new breed of Corvette enthusiasts when it introduced the 396 CI Mark IV big-block V-8 to its lineup in 1965, selling to 2,157 happy buyers. When the factory bumped displacement to the official NASCAR limit of 427 CI for 1966, more than 5,000 new Corvettes joined the ranks of the increasingly popular big-block club, including this low-mileage convertible offered with a believed-original 46,313 original miles. The extra 31 CI might not have seemed like much on paper, especially with the same 425 HP factory rating as in 1965, but the difference became obvious when engine speed climbed past the official figure of 5,600 RPM and continued on past 6,000 RPM to the true redline of 6,500 RPM, where output approached a real world 450 HP. The big-block Corvette’s chassis and suspension were given the attention necessary to handle the 427’s prodigious output. Stiffer front springs were specified along with a 9/16-inch rear sway bar to complement the 7/8-inch front bar, stronger shot-peened 4240 steel rear axles and universal joints were installed, the clutch plate pressure was increased, and a high-capacity copper-core radiator was used in conjunction with a larger cooling fan. This recently refreshed 1966 Corvette big-block convertible presents in a very attractive and rare combination of Mosport Green metallic paint with a Saddle leather interior and a new beige convertible top. The clean and detailed engine compartment is home to the L72 427/425 HP Mark IV V-8 incorporating a solid-lifter cam, correct Holley 3247 4-barrel carburetor, Winters aluminum intake manifold, deep-groove pulleys and side exhaust. The chassis has been redone with newer bushings and steering components, and the appearance has been refreshed with new emblems and badges. In addition to a 4-speed manual transmission, power steering and power brakes, this Sting Ray convertible is equipped with a Teakwood steering wheel, power windows, an AM/FM radio and finned aluminum knock-off wheels wearing goldline tires.
F92 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 194376S106026 $115,000.00 $130,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Nassau Blue over Blue. This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe has been comprehensively restored to its original glory. Showing a believed-correct 19,474 miles, it offers collectors the very attractive combination of big-block power and several desirable options in a show-stopping presentation. Corvette engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov labored without pause to improve the Sting Ray from before the time of its introduction to the public in 1962. By the 1966 model year, the Corvette featured improvements to every area from handling to horsepower, among the most significant of which were the addition of all-wheel disc brakes and the turn to big-block power. Both of those features arrived in 1965, when a 396 CI Mark IV version of the racing-purposed Mark II entered the mix with a factory rating of 425 HP. Always insistent upon balanced engineering, Arkus-Duntov added considerable strength to Corvette’s driveline and suspension to handle the power and torque of the new big-block engine and the extra weight that came with it. He increased the front spring rates, added a 9/16-inch anti-roll bar at the rear and specially hardened rear axles and universal joints. With that year’s upgrade to wider 7.75-15 low-profile tires, the cumulative effect was a better-handling Corvette than ever, despite the big-block engine’s increased heft. In 1966, Arkus-Duntov increased the bore of the Mark IV engine to 4.25 inches, bringing it out to its original 427 CI displacement. Equipped with a Holley 750 CFM double-pumper 4-barrel carburetor and side exhaust, the 427/425 HP solid-lifter big-block V-8 powering this very sharp 1966 Sting Ray coupe is mated to a Muncie M21 close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission driving a Positraction rear end with 3.70:1 gearing. Presented in sparkling Nassau Blue with a matching blue leather interior, it hits all the right marks with power disc brakes, power windows and tinted glass, Teakwood steering wheel on a telescopic column, AM/FM radio and desirable finned aluminum knock-off wheels wearing goldline tires
F93 1973 De Tomaso Pantera THPNNJ05132 $65,000.00 $80,000.00 $73,700 €63,650 Mid Red and Black over Black. First presented in the U.S. at the New York Auto Show in 1970, the DeTomaso Pantera captivated the audience with its graceful integration of an exotic Italian body design mated with a reliable and proven American drivetrain. The Pantera was styled at the Italian design firm of Ghia by a young American-born Tom Tajaarda, who has often referred to the car as his greatest piece of work. Built under the guidance of Alejandro DeTomaso, the cars were assembled in Modena, Italy—unquestionably the epicenter of Italian automotive artistry. The basic architecture of the Pantera was that of rear mid-engine layout. The chosen engine was the Ford 351 Cleveland, a stout powerplant admired for its 4-bolt main-bearing caps and large valves. The V-8 engine was held in high esteem for its performance as well as its reliability. The 5-speed transaxle was the same one utilized in the Maserati Bora and sourced from the German manufacturer ZF. A total of 5,500 of the 7,260 Panteras built from 1971-1992 were exported to the United States. Realizing that America was its most lucrative market, DeTomaso specified a key list of standard equipment in the Pantera that included air conditioning, power-assisted 4-wheel disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering and electric windows. Ford began importing the Pantera into the American market in 1971 to be sold through its Lincoln-Mercury dealer network. After some initial issues with the early production examples, the Pantera was drastically improved in 1972 so the model could live up to the high expectations of its customers. This was a fast car for the period, in fact, “Car and Driver” magazine recorded a 0-60 MPH time of 5.5 seconds during testing. This sharp-looking Pantera was the subject of an extensive restoration, has 72,418 original miles and comes with the factory-issued tool roll. Italian style with American V-8 power: what could be better?
F94 1964 Pontiac GTO Convertible 824F34623 $120,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Yorktown Blue over Blue. This 1964 Pontiac GTO Convertible was finished at the factory in Yorktown Blue, the same color as the car that graced the cover of Ronny and The Daytonas’ hit album “G.T.O.” The single “G.T.O.” raced up the billboard charts in 1964, eventually reaching fourth on the Billboard Hot 100. Possibly an advertisement by Pontiac or perhaps just the right song at the right time, either way, Ronny and The Daytonas cemented Pontiac’s new muscle-car offering in automotive and pop-culture history. The lyrics, “Little GTO you’re really lookin’ fine, three deuces and a 4-speed and a 389, listen to her tachin’ up now, listen to her whine, c’mon and turn it on, wind it up, blow it out, GTO … ” resonated with young buyers at the time, driving GTO sales through the roof in 1964 and 1965. Sold new at Van Winkle Motor Company in Dallas, Texas, this 1964 GTO is one of very few convertibles built with factory air conditioning and a 4-speed manual transmission. The subject of a body-off restoration that included an upgrade to a dual-circuit braking system, it shows off its beautiful Yorktown Blue metallic paint and a complementing blue interior under a power-operated black convertible top. Its 389 CI V-8 features a 4-barrel carburetor that can be swapped out for the dealer-added Tri-Power carburetion setup included in the trunk. This well-equipped first-year GTO includes power steering and brakes, bucket seats and console, tinted glass, full-size spinner wheel covers over redline tires, a rare Custom Sport steering wheel and a Delco pushbutton radio. Ronny and The Daytonas said it best: “Gonna save all my money and buy a GTO … let’ em know that I’m the coolest thing around … little GTO.”
F95 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code E7FH395296 $75,000.00 $100,000.00 $110,000 €95,000 10% Red over White. Sport and muscle are combined in this rare 1957 Thunderbird. Stunning in Flame Red with a white interior and port-hole hardtop, this 1957 Thunderbird is one of only 1,499 produced with the E-code 312 CI V-8 factory-equipped with dual Holley 4-barrel carburetors. With less than 100 miles added since a rotisserie restoration, the T-Bird is a five-time Gold Medallion and two-time First Place winner at the Classic Thunderbird Club International. It is equipped with the aforementioned dual-quad 312 CI V-8 engine with dress-up kit, an automatic transmission, Dial-O-Matic seats, fender skirts, Town and Country radio and power assist for the steering, brakes and side windows. Firestone bias-ply wide whitewall tires and chrome wire wheels add to the classic look. Introduced in 1955 to compete with Chevrolet’s two-seat Corvette, the Thunderbird was slightly updated for 1957 with a restyled grille, reshaped front bumper, larger tailfins and tail lights, and lengthened rear sheet metal that provided space to return the spare tire to the trunk. The interior was enhanced with improved seating, a new instrument panel with round gauges in a single pod and fully padded dash surfaces. Less visible improvements included improved engine cooling, revised spring rates, larger brakes, stiffer chassis crossmembers, a 12-volt electrical system and new 14-inch wheels. The 312 CI V-8 replaced the 292 as the standard engine and was offered in three configurations, including the dual-quad E-code, which boasted 270 HP and 355 lb-ft of torque for similar power output to the fuel-injected and dual-quad 283s offered in the 1957 Corvette. The 1957 Thunderbird was the last as a two-seater; Ford shocked the sports-car world by switching to a larger four-seater T-Bird for 1958. This E-code 1957 Thunderbird comes with both soft and hard tops, and is equipped with stainless exhaust, fuel lines and brake lines.
F96 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 194677S111177 $55,000.00 $65,000.00 N/R $60,500 €52,250 Mid Maroon and Black over 420 Saddle-tone. The year 1967 heralded the finale of what was the shortest production of all Corvette series: the mid-year Sting Ray. While big-block models had captured a good deal of attention by this time, the high-winding 327 small-block V-8 engine was still an excellent choice between the front fenders. The second-generation design has been heralded as the most recognizable of the various iterations of America’s most popular and longest-running sports car, and for good reason. The beneficiary of a cosmetic restoration, the unmistakable styling cues from this model year on this car include the functional fender vents, dual tail lamps and subdued chrome work, with a big-block hood installed as a bonus. Underneath it is the matching-numbers 327/300 HP V-8 engine, which retained its notoriety with an open-element air cleaner, 4-barrel carburetor, cast-aluminum Corvette valve covers and dual under-car exhaust that exits through bright-surround chrome tips in the lower rear valance. This is backed by the 2-Speed Powerglide automatic transmission and ends in a 4.11 Positraction differential. This convertible further benefits from power steering and power brakes. Nonetheless, perhaps where this car creates its most immediate impression is the color combination. Refinished in the popular 988 Marlboro Maroon with a black soft top, the interior is done in the also-correct and complementary 420 Saddle-tone interior. This includes bucket seats, a radio, center console, 3-spoke steering wheel, in-dash tachometer, 160 MPH speedometer and more. The exterior trim includes rocker-panel moldings and the flip-top gas cap. The popular Rally wheels are wearing redline tires that closely match the body paint, and the overall car emerges as both subtle and classic. When this model year ended, so did production on the Sting Ray design, which remains one of the truly representative American vehicles of all time. Do not forgo the possibilities this convertible offers.
F97 1973 Ford Bronco Ranger U15GLQ00891 $85,000.00 $115,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Hot Ginger Metallic over Ginger and Plaid. With 56,000 original miles on the odometer, this 1973 Ford Bronco Ranger retains its factory-original Hot Ginger Metallic paintwork and Ranger decals. Delivered new to Sun Valley Ford in Concord, California, this superb Bronco would live with just two owners in the California Bay Area for the next 39 years. This example is loaded with factory options including the Ranger package, skid plates, California emissions equipment, auxiliary fuel tank with skid plate, the convenience group, extra cooling package, reduced-noise exhaust and body-side moldings. Additionally, when new, the original owner had Sun Valley Ford install fiberglass rear-fender flares, air conditioning, 15×8-inch chrome wheels and an auxiliary fan mounted in the rear of the factory hardtop to circulate air through the cabin. In early 2012, it found its way into the home of its third owner, noted Ford collector, historian and early Bronco enthusiast Colin Comer. The Bronco’s original 302 CI V-8 engine has been professionally rebuilt, balanced and blueprinted and is mated to the original 3-speed manual transmission and 3.50:1 limited-slip rear axle. A comprehensive restoration of the transmission, differentials, braking system, fuel system and air conditioning was administered. The suspension has been upgraded with Duff Bronco stock-height, soft-ride front coil springs and custom 80/20 Duff shocks all around. A modern Borgeson power-steering system was also installed. On the interior, this Bronco sports the original Ginger plaid Ranger bucket seats and rear seat, with an AM radio and remote outside mirror. New carpeting, a period-correct column-mounted tachometer and a Hurst floor shifter have since been added. The entire interior of the truck was removed and cleaned, and Dynamat sound-deadening material was installed under the headliner, in the doors and tailgate, and within the rear quarter panels prior to re-installation. Documented with a Deluxe Marti Report and copy of its original window sticker, this low-mileage, heavily optioned Bronco Ranger is an example of true collector quality.
F98 1962 Porsche 356B Super Coupe 210950 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 $143,000 €123,499 Mid Oslo Blue over Red. This award-winning and matching-numbers 1962 Porsche 356B Coupe is finished in its original bright hue of Olso Blue and benefits from a meticulous restoration by renowned Porsche expert Tom Drummond. The rich paint application on a laser-straight body with uniform gaps really helps set this example apart from the crowd. Factory-correct Hella European headlights, a proper Durant mirror, an authentic Karmann Karosserie body badge and a complete set of period-correct chrome wheels with the nipple-style hubcaps accented by a center-mounted cloisonné Porsche crest complete the distinctive look. The seemingly flawless interior is finished in red German leather with a matching red square-weave and contrasted against a white perforated headliner. Further detailing of the interior reveals a set of date-code correct instruments recently restored by Palo Alto Speedometer, a restored steering column, a restored steering wheel and black leather luggage straps. The immaculate engine compartment shows the metal shrouding finished in the correct hues, a pair of Zenith carburetors with their proper air-cleaner housings, an H filter oil canister and a new Dansk OEM muffler and pipes. The suspension was finished with powdercoated plates, steering arms and trailing arms combined with a new set of Koni shock absorbers. In the middle of the 1962 model year, Porsche changed its body style from the T5 to the T6. The T6 had a larger rear window, the rear engine lid now had two grilles, the front luggage hood had a more rectangular shape, the gas filler lid was relocated to the top of the front fender, and louvers were added just ahead of the windshield to aid ventilation. Because of the midyear body change, only 1,272 examples of the T6-bodied coupes were built with the 1600S engine. This 356B comes with the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a copy of the factory build sheet.
F99 1964 Iso Rivolta GT300 1R360303 $75,000.00 $95,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso over Nero leather. Introduced in 1962 at the Turin Auto Show, Iso produced only 797 Rivolta GT300s before production ceased in 1970. Styled by Giorgietto Giugiaro for Bertone, the Rivolta was built as a GT car in the truest of senses: a 2+2 car made for high-speed, cross-country cruising in comfort. Powered by the 327/300 HP V-8 engine derived from Chevrolet’s Corvette, a 4-speed manual transmission lent a sporting air to the capable engine and Giotto Bizzarrini-designed chassis combination. Rolling on Borrani knock-off wire wheels, this car comes with a newer, updated exhaust system, owner’s manual and paperwork history. Finished in red with a black interior, this particular Rivolta presents extremely well, the brightwork gleaming atop deep, reflective paintwork. Isothermos was founded in Genoa in 1939 and manufactured refrigeration units. In 1942, Renzo Rivolta acquired the company and moved it to Bresso where it was refounded as Iso Autoveicoli S.p.A in 1953, indicating its interest in producing motor vehicles, specifically motorcycles, scooters and trikes. Likely its most famous effort was the design and licensing of the Isetta. Licensed to a number of manufacturers around the world, the BMW Isetta was largely the most successful and popular. Development on the Rivolta would begin soon after the Isetta, bringing a proper four-place coupe to the family. Initially developed to compete with cars like the Fiat 2300, it was quickly obvious the Rivolta was markedly more upscale and would compete with higher-priced cars from Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and BMW. The Chevrolet drivetrain impressed people—here was a car oozing Italian style and craftsmanship with a proven and powerful drivetrain that could be easily serviced. The Rivolta eventually led Iso to produce the Grifo, using the same formula of exceptional styling, an outstanding interior and a proven and powerful American drivetrain. The Rivolta combines a comfortable interior and proven drivetrain with handsome and crisp styling to produce a fantastic unique car.
F100 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250SE Cabriolet 11102312084751 $150,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Hellblau Blue over Eggshell leather. The Mercedes-Benz 250SE made its debut in 1965 in closed-coupe, four-door sedan and convertible configurations. This example is one of only 954 Mercedes-Benz 250SE cabriolets built from 1965-67 and displays 57,605 miles on the odometer. The classic European car retains its original and desirable light blue over eggshell tan complementary color palette, famously solid build quality and robust German precision engineering. The new model was among the first of its kind built on the new-generation chassis and body platform that would become the basis for 1968 sedans. The 2.5L inline 6-cylinder single-overhead-camshaft engine is equipped with a Bosch fuel-injection system for a factory-rated output of 170 HP at 5,600 RPM and 174 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 RPM. The cast-iron block and aluminum cylinder-head engine is backed up by a cost-optional floor-shifted 4-speed automatic transmission. Optional power steering works with independent front A-arm and rear trailing-arm suspension along with power brakes for road control and ride quality expected of a Mercedes-Benz automobile. The signature upright grille and stacked headlamps help the 250SE speak the unmistakable language of Mercedes-Benz design, and the steel unit body underwent a single cosmetic repaint into its factory-issue Hellblau light blue color. The dark blue convertible top opens and stows away to reveal an eggshell interior with elegant design and luxurious yet durable appointments. The wood-finish dash is outfitted with VDO gauges, an original Becker Mexico radio and clock. Factory Kuhlmeister air conditioning channels four-season cabin comfort from directional vents below the dash. The convertible rides on body-color steel wheels and white-stripe radial tires dressed with trim rings and Hellblau center hubcaps. This is one special Mercedes-Benz, a stately German convertible that rides along with a style all of its own.
F101 1960 Porsche 356B Super Cabriolet 153606 $185,000.00 $205,000.00 $148,500 €128,249 -20% Signal Red over Black leatherette and cloth top. This 1960 Porsche 356B Reutter T5 Cabriolet is a wonderful example of the third-generation 356 that has earned the Porsche Club of America Gold Award at the Lone Star Regional in Texas with an almost perfect score of 179.9 of 180 points. Introduced in 1959, the 356B was the culmination of a continuous series of mechanical and functional improvements that solidified Porsche’s status as one of the world’s superior sports-car manufacturers and a force in international motorsports. While the 356B still employed the sturdy unibody produced by Karosseriesfabrik Reutter & Co. of Stuttgart, it incorporated a sporty new front-end design by veteran Porsche designer Erwin Komenda that featured well-defined fenders with more upright headlights, a larger bumper mounted higher for better collision protection, parking lights at the ends of the front air inlets and a redesigned bonnet with a large chromed grab handle. This prize-winning 1960 Porsche 356B T5 Cabriolet was restored about 15 years ago, a process during which its undercarriage was treated with a special undercoating for maximum preservation. Combining excellent Signal Red paint with a black cloth top and a new black leatherette interior, it is fully dressed with chromed aero mirrors, new Dunlop SP 20 tires on chromed factory wheels with Super Deluxe hubcaps, a wood-rimmed competition steering wheel and seat belts. It is powered by a period-correct 1,600cc flat-4 engine (Serial No. P72003) mated to the car’s original 4-speed manual transmission (Serial No. 37706, 741/OC). Noted marque specialists Rennsport Porsche Works in Sealy, Texas, recently serviced the car with new fluids, brake cylinders and shoes; they also rebuilt the carburetors, installed new shifter linkage, bushings and brackets, serviced the transaxle, installed a rebuilt Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio and installed new bumperettes. Offered with the original owner’s manual and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this carefully maintained 356B cabriolet presents in outstanding overall condition, ready to deliver years of enjoyment in vintage Porsche style.
F102 1937 Lincoln Model K Panel Brougham K8376 $200,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black and Cane over Black leather. To achieve truly high accolades in automotive judging requires a magnificent level of functionality and desirability, and this truly spectacular 1937 Lincoln Model K Panel Brougham meets that criteria. Indeed, this is a motoring masterpiece that took the AACA National First Prize and a Best in Class at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance during the 1988 show season. A blend of golden-era cab coachwork and circa-1930s fender and accessory styling meant this Model K was not for everyone, marketed in the day to the most exclusive clientele of the Lincoln marque. The car here is one of just nine produced for the 1937 model year with Willoughby & Company Panel Brougham coachwork, the most expensive and lavish factory catalog body available, and one of just a mere two known to still exist today. For power, the engine beneath the expansive hoods is Lincoln’s 414 CI V-12, backed by a 3-speed manual transmission. The overall body is finished in black with hand-painted canning, and behind the thin V-pillar windscreen is a driver’s compartment trimmed in black leather. Meanwhile, the almost-decadent passenger compartment is done in gray broadcloth. Accessories include dual wood-trimmed vanity mirrors, dual ashtrays, fabric roller blinds and a roll-down divider window. Foot rests and dual jump seats complete the sense of sophistication. A Jaeger eight-day clock and plated hardware are part of the driving experience up front, and added visibility comes from dual Senior Trippe lights. On the leading edge is a greyhound mascot, with Art Deco-design Lincoln V-12 logos found in various locations, including the centers of the dual side mounts with painted covers. Dual outside mirrors help rearward visibility, and this rare Lincoln rides on chrome wire wheels and wide whitewall tires. A V-12 Lincoln, especially a Brougham, was a sure sign of status in its day. That fact remains true in the current era.
F103 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera 911 540 0363 $50,000.00 $60,000.00 $62,700 €54,150 5% Lime Green over Black. This 1975 Porsche Carrera is sequence build number 363 of the original 395 cars to receive the Carrera designation and specifically earmarked for export to the United States. These cars paid tribute to the legendary Carrera 2.7 RS that first appeared in 1973 and its later big-bumper version that followed in 1974 and 1975—cars that were restricted from export to America due to emission standards. The American-specification Porsche 911 Carrera was visually identical to its European counterpart, with widened RS-style rear fender flares, a signature whale-tail rear spoiler, Fuchs forged 15-inch aluminum wheels and a bold “Carrera” script running along the side of the car. This 911 Carrera wears the iconic and factory-correct color of code-N8N8 Lime Green with Cinnamon leather interior. Factory options include sport shocks and air conditioning. Mechanically, the American version of the Carrera was in a lower state of tune as compared to the European model and identical in drivetrain specification to the 911S. However, both the European and American 911 Carreras shared the same engine block—the 2.7L 7R. This is the last Porsche engine block to be constructed of magnesium and was coveted for its light weight. Other shared mechanicals are the Nikasil coated-aluminum cylinder barrels, boasting extremely lightweight yet durable barrels that allowed a bore increase to 2.7. The car comes with extensive documentation, including a stamped Porsche maintenance logbook supporting its current odometer reading of 73,552 original miles. Records also include a $17,000 reseal and refresh of the engine by German Tech of Largo, Florida. This car includes a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a set of correct Fuchs wheels with Michelin Pilot tires in addition to the currently fitted Fiske FM 10 wheels with Yokohama tires. There’s no question this Lime Green 911 Carrera will get noticed everywhere it goes.
F104 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster WP0EB0918KS173607 $165,000.00 $185,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Guards Red over Cashmere Beige leather. As a precious limited-production, one-year-only model, the 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster is the spiritual successor to the iconic 356 Speedster. One of a mere 823 units imported into the United States, it presents in classic Guards Red with a black canvas cloth top complemented by a rich Cashmere Beige leather interior with a deviating black finish on the dashboard and upper door sills. The 911 Speedster is based on the G-Series 911 platform that was in production from 1974-89. Many Porschephiles consider 1989 a pinnacle model year based on its high build quality, reliability and performance. When Porsche first announced the 911 Speedster for the 1989 model year, the cars instantly became collectible and fetched a healthy premium over their MSRP with the demand far exceeding the supply. The Speedster was instantly recognizable by its steeply raked and low-slung windshield combined with the solid hump-style tonneau cover. Although it could be ordered with a narrow body, the majority of Speedsters came as wide-body models with front and rear fender flares sourced from the legendary 930 Turbo. Likewise, the extra-wide Fuchs anodized alloy wheels were also from the 930 line. Contrary to the original 356 Porsche Speedsters, which were minimalist cars that offered little in terms of creature comforts, the 1989 Speedster comes well-equipped with air conditioning, power windows, power seats, power locks and a premium audio system. The 3.2L horizontally opposed flat-6 engine combined with its 5-speed transmission, independent front and rear suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes produce a seductive combination of exceptional acceleration, handling and braking in one package. Believed to have traveled 22,034 miles since new, this 911 Speedster comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, extensive ownership records, a spare set of Fuchs wheels mounted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires and a distinctive one-year-only profile.
F105 1993 Porsche 911/964 RS America Roadster WP0CB2964PS460271 $80,000.00 $95,000.00 $77,000 €66,500 -4% Grand Prix White over White leather. As one of only 52 examples built for the 1993 model year, this Porsche 911 America Roadster was the most expensive 911 convertible available when new with a price nearing six figures. Built as a commemorative edition honoring the coveted 1952 Porsche America Roadster race car, its limited-production output and custom bodywork bestowed upon it instant icon status. The America Roadster was based on the standard 911 platform—internally designated as the 964 series—but with some significant mechanical and exterior differences. Although the car is called an America Roadster, it is indeed a cabriolet by definition with its integral windshield frame structurally tied to the main tub. Porsche set out to distinguish the America Roadster from its standard cabriolet with three major visual cues taken from its Type 964 platform 911 Turbo, including wide fenders, reshaped rocker-panel pieces and 17-inch alloy wheels mounted on low aspect-ratio tires. Porsche also installed the 911 Turbo brakes with massive cross-drilled and vented rotors for maximum stopping power. The America Roadsters were not only limited-production cars, but they also came well-equipped with a host of desirable options such as a leather interior, air conditioning, power seats, power windows and a power convertible top. The 3.6L flat-6 engine provides sizeable torque and has ample performance even by modern standards with a top speed of 163 MPH and a recorded 0-60 MPH time of 5.5 seconds. This particular 911 America Roadster presents beautifully in the classic Porsche hue of Grand Prix White with a contrasting black convertible top and color-keyed Carrera Cup wheels. The interior features white leather seats offset with black piping. This America Roadster comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, title and service records that support its 35,565-odometer reading, and a spare set of black-with-chrome-lip Speedline Wheels mounted with Goodyear Eagle tires. Exceedingly rare, this machine has enough performance that motorists in close proximity are usually relegated to staring at its distinctive whale tai
F106 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo WP0AC2990VS375066 $165,000.00 $175,000.00 $140,250 €121,124 -15% Guards Red over Black leather. The Type 993 Porsche 911 Turbos are held in the highest esteem among Porsche purists for good reason: it was the final year of air-cooled Porsche production. Enthusiasts particularly applaud the 1997 model-year cars as they represent a thin layer that hits the sweet-spot intersection between Porsche tradition and newfound technology. The 1997 911 Turbo brought a lot to the table, as it was the last Turbo to be both air-cooled and hand-built. The legendary air-cooled Mezger flat-6 engine design is revered for its strength, speed and reliability that proved itself on both the street and in the harsh environs of racing competition. The hand-built assembly process applied by Porsche was a reflection of both the high quality of materials used as well as the skilled workers who employed time-honored methods of construction. In terms of newfound technology, this was the first Turbo model to use twin turbochargers, as well as using a 6-speed manual transmission hooked up to an advanced all-wheel-drive system. The twin-turbocharging layout was one of the most significant developments since it overcame the insidious throttle-lag issues that had long plagued the 930 Turbo and 911 Turbo models, and it also provided a boost to its top rating of 400 HP in a nicely progressive and linear manner that represented a sea change versus its predecessors. Combining the all-wheel-drive design with the twin turbochargers proved to be a massive step forward in handling by mitigating the oversteer that defined the early rear-drive Turbo models. The 6-speed gearbox had a great ratio selection and was smooth shifting, further enhancing the sheer joy of driving the 911 Turbo. This particular car presents beautifully in a Guards Red exterior with black leather interior. Upgrades abound with a B&B exhaust, Bilstein PSS9 lowered suspension and 18-inch Gembella Speedline Competition wheels. The car comes with extensive ownership, maintenance and service records that corroborate its low odometer mileage reading of 21,837. The 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo may well represent the ultimate in air-cooled motoring pleasure.
F107 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster WP0CB2A98BS795631 $280,000.00 $295,000.00 $242,000 €208,999 -14% Carrera White over Black Leather. With a mere 356 units produced for worldwide consumption—100 of which were imported to the United States—the 2011 Porsche Speedster is the rare creation of Porsche’s Exclusive Department, a car that was intended from the start to pay homage to the bathtub 356 of the same name produced in the 1950s. There’s no question that the 356 unit total was not by mistake. Available in only two colors—Pure Blue and Carrara White—this Speedster is one of just 40 finished in white. The 2011 Speedster is immediately recognized by its unique shape, starting with its steeply raked windshield that has been chopped by almost 2.5 inches, the twin-hump tonneau covering the rear section of the cabin, a low-slung cloth/canvas convertible top, wider rear fenders that accommodate a 44mm wider rear track, black-spoked Fuchs style wheels with a polished lip mounted on wide low-profile tires and GT3-inspired front and rear body/bumper sections. The net result of these visual changes makes for an inspiring silhouette reminiscent of its 356 progenitor. In sharp contrast to the original 356 Speedster, which was a bare-bones minimalist sports car, the 2011 Speedster is a modern and heavily optioned car that comes with a litany of standard of features, including the PDK 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, carbon-ceramic disc brakes, Porsche Active Suspension Management, Sport Chrono Package, Bose CD/DVD entertainment center, Bluetooth and Navigation connectivity, power windows, seats and locks, climate control, cruise control, Park Assist and rain-sensing wipers. Powered by a 3.8L flat-6 engine sourced from the 911 GTS that produces 408 HP, the Speedster is a strong-accelerating sports car with a factory-rated 0-60 MPH time of just 4.6 seconds. This gorgeous 2011 Porsche 911 Speedster has only 1,704 documented miles and presents in stunning condition.
F108 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 Convertible 136670B161703 $250,000.00 $300,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Turquoise over White. This exceptional 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 Convertible is rare in every sense of the word and has the build sheet to support it. The documented factory-production 13-second Chevelle LS6 is one of just 18 convertibles known to exist. Few were equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission like this one, and this unique car was ordered with stripe and cowl-induction delete, making it one of the rarest LS6s on the planet. This formidable and distinctive LS6 underwent a ground-up restoration when it was part of the Milt Robson Collection and shows just 50,356 miles on the odometer. The Chevrolet Chevelle was a big hit with more than 440,000 produced in 1970. The ultimate Chevelle package occurred that same year as Chevrolet offered 450 HP worth of LS6 Turbo-Jet power to those willing to pay $263.30 for the factory 454 CI big-block engine. Fitting the car with an LS6 required options that backed up all that power with heavy-duty engineering and added nearly $1,000 to the base price. With that expense in mind, 4,475 Chevelle buyers chose the legendary LS6 engine. Only a tiny fraction of these were LS6-equipped Chevelle convertibles. The build sheet for this rare LS6 convertible was discovered in the process of a comprehensive restoration. The documentation helps decode why this particular LS6 may represent the very zenith of American muscle-car performance development, divulging that the original owner of this Medium Turquoise Metallic muscle car specified stripe and cowl-induction delete with a 4-speed manual to help the 454 deliver its wicked punch. It was as close as any Chevelle LS6 convertible could ever get to being a sleeper, and it was awesome, especially for the unsuspecting passenger who got the thrill ride of a lifetime. With a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, aluminum dual-plane intake manifold and dual exhaust, the LS6 engine was conservatively rated for 450 HP and 500 lb-ft of torque. The 454 was prepared by the factory with a forged crankshaft and pistons with 4-bolt mains. A high-performance camshaft with solid lifters worked dual-sprung oversized valves in the cast-iron heads. The 6,500 RPM redline required deep-groove accessory pulleys. The engine is backed by a Muncie M22 Rock Crusher 4-speed manual transmission and heavy-duty 12-bolt rear axle for supercar-level factory performance that thrust the LS6-equipped 1970 Chevelle into the 13-second quarter-mile club right off the showroom floor. High performance was not the only refinement to the Chevelle formula for 1970. More sculptured styling emphasized the sporty body lines. The horizontally split front grille featured four-across headlights. The Super Sport package brought distinctive brightwork, a black-painted grille and SS badging. The code-34 Medium Turquoise Metallic paint is as it once was, returned to its original luster during the restoration. The car sports a convertible top in white, which opens to a Parchment vinyl interior with optional Strato Bucket seats and a pushbutton AM radio, and the 4-speed floor-mount shifter proves to be the only subtle hint of the monster that lies under the hood. The Super Sport package and LS6 engine together brought handling and traction improvements to the A-body platform SS454. The F41 suspension group packed heavy-duty coil springs, front and rear anti-sway bars, and box-welded rear lower control arms. Power front disc brakes and power steering help control the horsepower. The Chevelle rides on 14×7-inch Super Sport wheels with SS center caps and Goodyear Polyglas tires The LS6 remains a legend to this day. It was a fire that burned brightest just prior to the flame being snuffed out on the original American high-performance era. This Chevelle LS6 convertible’s incredible combination of factory performance and distinctive options make it rare even amongst muscle-car royalty.
F109 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster 82932 $300,000.00 $350,000.00 $385,000 €332,498 10% Guards Red over Black. This 1957 Porsche 356A Speedster is the stunning result of a meticulous and exacting restoration by renowned Porsche expert Thomas Drummond III, who has more than 40 years of experience with the marque. The 356A Speedster was the brainchild of New York City sports-car importer Max Hoffman, whose customers were clamoring for a lighter weight factory version of the 356 to compete in the increasingly popular American sports-car racing events. An appropriate answer to this demand was the 356A Speedster, as it was delivered with race-style bucket seats, a low-cut windshield that could easily be removed for something more track-ready like a tonneau and racing windscreen, and removable side curtains standing in for roll-up windows. The restoration for this particular machine began by stripping the original tub to bare metal and removing all parts including the wiring harness. The body was painted, blocked down with 600-grit sandpaper and then painted again. Color sanding and buffing achieved the final mirror finish, making the car ready for final assembly. Great care was taken in ensuring authenticity, which is evident in such details as factory bumpers, guards and tubes, and correctly dated wheels, hubcaps, ignition coil and carburetors; even the windshield wipers are the correct and rare original Speedster “pickle fork” style. Further demonstrating this attention to detail, the hardware is original to the car; the manufacturer’s name is on each bolt, all of which were correctly replated in either clear cadmium or black oxide. The Porsche factory assembly manual’s exploded drawings were used to ensure every part was properly installed and correct. The mechanicals were handled with the same exacting care; the rebuilt engine is detailed to as-new. The all-independent suspension is completed as new and reflects the same quality finish, including undercoating to match the factory-delivery finish. Reproducing such a fine result as this 356A Speedster would require an effort of Herculean proportions.
F109.1 1987 Porsche 959 Komfort WP0ZZZ95ZHS900075 $450,000.00 $550,000.00 $467,500 €403,748 Mid While the car was being transported in a single car enclosed trailer, the trailer detached from the truck while driving on the interstate, at which time it exited the interstate and was stopped by a tree
F110 1967 Ghia 450SS Convertible 4016 $200,000.00 $225,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Yellow over Black leather. Specialty vehicles abound in the collector-car hobby, but it’s rare any of them can match the appeal of this rare 1967 Ghia 450SS Convertible boasting American horsepower. The ill-fated destruction of so many Chrysler turbine cars first designed by the Turin-based Ghia firm due to tariff issues is well-known, but what most collectors don’t know is that 52 standard-powered Ghia vehicles were also hand-built between 1966 and 1967. The Italian GT body, here covered in bright yellow, was a sleek Giorgetto Giugiaro cabriolet design, and these cars were delivered new in the U.S. through a single dealer in Beverly Hills, California. This example is Chassis No. 4016 and is based on Plymouth Barracuda Formula S underpinnings, exuding a very European flair with aggressive, almost muscle-car-like cues. Under the hood is a Chrysler Commando 273/235 HP V-8 engine, the first of the performance LA-series Mopar small-blocks. Backed by a 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, these cars retailed at above $12,000 in 1967. Yellow with a black interior with yellow piping, the only other yellow 450SS produced was the original Barcelona show car that inspired the program. Showing a believed-correct 72,000 original miles, the car was restored approximately 10 years ago with new paint and interior. It received a comprehensive engine rebuild at 67,000 miles. New shocks, brakes, ball joints and steering items were replaced at 70,500 miles, and the transmission and front suspension were both rebuilt at 71,237 miles. All are Chrysler-designed parts. The interior was refreshed with reupholstered seats, door panels and new carpet, with gauges rebuilt. These retain unique Ghia copper trim rings and the car also has pushbutton door handles. Borrani wire wheels complete the overall look. The expensive Ghia 450SS was a blip on the screen for most enthusiasts back in the day. Today, this incredible opportunity represents the possibility of owning one of the most beautiful “specialty vehicles” ever created, with an American powertrain and European flair.
F111 1973 Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona 16701 $625,000.00 $700,000.00 $825,000 €712,496 18% Azzurro over Nero leather. This 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 is Serial No. 16701, a highly original and well-maintained example that remains mostly unrestored with a single repaint. Based on the great 275 GTB, the Ferrari 365 GTB/4, also known as the Daytona, was the best-performing sports car of its era, with a race-proven chassis layout, tuned 4-wheel independent suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes and a high-winding four-cam V-12 engine that sang like only a Ferrari V-12 can. Wrapped in one of the most cleanly conceived bodies in automotive history and packing more than 350 HP, the Daytona was unanimously pronounced by the motoring press as the greatest sports car the world had ever seen. The Daytona’s conventional layout may have been the source of some initial disappointment for those envisioning a mid-engined road-going Ferrari to answer the Lamborghini Miura, but all doubt faded once road testing commenced and the motoring press began singing its praises in unison. Most importantly, despite its weight of more than 3,500 pounds and a spacious, well-appointed interior, the Daytona surpassed the Miura’s performance with a higher top speed (174 MPH) and lower standing quarter-mile and kilometer times. Documented in part with a 1987 odometer statement declaring 15,079 miles, Daytona No. 16701 now shows 17,360 miles, believed to be an accurate reading. The car currently retains the original U.S. emissions-control system, extremely rare OEM Dinoplex ignition system, Ansa exhaust, rare factory knock-off OEM wheel set with matching Michelin X radial tires, a very complete tool kit and spare equipment, and a complete set of original owner’s operation manuals. The suspension and Koni shock absorbers have been restored over the past two years, and it has recently received a major service that included a tune-up and all new fluids. Repainted once in Azzuro (metallic blue) paint, the car also features a clean black interior with Daytona bucket seats, power windows, air conditioning and Becker Mexico radio cassette. This is a superb example of Ferrari’s ultimate front-engine V-12 sports car of the classic era and one of just four Azzuro 365 GTB/4s listed in the Daytona Registry.
F112 1965 Chevrolet Corvette N03 Big Tank Coupe 194375S110028 $175,000.00 $225,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Silver over Black. Chevrolet made subtle but important changes to Corvette styling for 1965. The hood indents were removed, further smoothing the car’s surfaces, and the twin side indentations made way for three vertical vents that were finally functional rather than merely cosmetic. More significant than any of the various detail changes, however, were the introduction of the long-awaited 4-wheel disc brakes and the addition of the first big-block V-8 to the engine lineup. One fact stayed the same: the racing-purposed 36-gallon fuel tank remained one of the least-ordered items on the option list, its use still confined to coupe models. This rare Silver Pearl 1965 Chevrolet Corvette “Big Tank” Coupe has perhaps one of the more interesting histories of any non-raced Corvette of the period. It was built at the St. Louis plant on February 14, 1965, and shipped to Holland, arriving on April 13, where it remained for 10 years until it was repatriated to Texas. One of 41 Big Tank coupes built in 1965, it is the only example known to have been exported new from the St. Louis assembly plant to a foreign country and is distinguished by its unusual list of features, most notably its extremely uncommon metric speedometer. It retains its matching-numbers L75 327/300 HP small-block engine, Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission and 3.36:1 Positraction differential, and it is further outfitted with finned-aluminum knock-off wheels, power steering and brakes, and a black leather interior. It is generously outfitted, its optional extras including Soft Ray-tinted glass, power windows, a Teakwood steering wheel on a tilting column, AM/FM radio and a day/night mirror. It was restored in 1993 by the renowned Nabers Brothers of Houston, Texas, and, not surprisingly, has earned Bloomington Gold, NCRS Top Flight and Chevy Vettefest Triple Crown honors, and has twice been selected for the Bloomington Gold Special Collection.
F113 1965 Porsche 356SC Cabriolet 160049 $300,000.00 $325,000.00 $297,000 €256,499 -1% Black over Black. For Porsche 356 enthusiasts, it just doesn’t get any better than this—the 356’s final evolution in cabriolet form. A low-production model, this machine is equipped with its matching-numbers high-horsepower 1600 SC engine, presents in the factory-correct color combination and holds the distinction of being a pristine example restored by a marque expert. This stunning triple-black machine—one of just 1,745 Reutter Karosserie-built examples for the 1965 model year—has undergone a meticulous restoration by marque-expert Tom Drummond of Costa Mesa, California. Drummond’s restorations have earned the highest honors and accolades in the Porsche community, including the Weissach Award at the 2014 Monterey Porsche Parade. The restoration resulted in a gorgeous cabriolet that mirrors the factory configuration from its black leather seats, correct code-6413 Black paint and radio-delete plate. In addition, the car is also equipped with the highly sought-after engine-turned wood-rimmed steering wheel and chrome wheels. The car is gorgeous with correct panel alignment, precise and uniform door, hood and decklid gaps, superb paint application, detailed engine compartment, detailed chassis, quality brightwork and overall world-class presentation. The final development of the iconic 356 series is acknowledged as the high-water mark for this legendary Porsche sports car. History has proven it to be the most improved, evolved and refined version of the 356. The accumulation of all the tribal knowledge acquired through literally millions of road and racing miles was integrated into this final version, including the all-important 4-wheel disc brakes that make driving so much more enjoyable than many other mid-‘60s rides. This 356SC is equipped with the highest horsepower specification pushrod engine offered in the 356 line. The SC engine features a counter-weighted crankshaft, short-skirt pistons, a higher compression ratio, a higher-lift/duration camshaft and a pair of Solex 40 carburetors. Backed with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this beautiful Porsche is an extraordinary example of the last-year 356SC Cabriolet.
F114 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400S 3802 $1,300,000.00 $1,600,000.00 $1,155,000 €997,495 -11% Rosso over Grigio leather. Serial No. 3802, this unrestored 1969 Lamborghini Miura P400 S is the second produced that year of a scant 140 S models built and No. 277 of a total Miura production of 764. The Miura created a sensation in bare chassis form at the 1965 Turin Auto Show, but its story begins two years earlier, when Lamborghini displayed a new V-12 engine beside a front-engined prototype chassis. While the prototype failed to impress the “cognoscenti,” the engine attracted enough attention that Lamborghini commissioned Carrozzeria Touring to build bodies for what would become the highly successful 350GT. Designed by former Ferrari engineer Giotto Bizzarrini, the V-12 was essentially a racing engine of short-stroke, big-bore architecture using four overhead cams, six twin-choke Weber carburetors and dry-sump oiling to achieve a low profile. The V-12 easily produced 400 HP in early testing, but when Ferruccio Lamborghini directed Bizzarrini to detune it in service to reliability and cost control, the veteran engineer quit, and Lamborghini tasked 24-year-old Giampaolo Dallara to complete the development. A prodigal graduate of the aeronautical engineering program at the famed Polytechnical Institute of Milan, Dallara worked closely with two other brilliant young talents—Paolo Stanzani, a graduate engineer from the University of Bologna, and New Zealander Bob Wallace, a former Ferrari and Maserati test driver—to complete the engine and adapt it for use in the 350GT. One evening after production had commenced on the 350 GT, Dallara, Stanzani and Wallace gathered for drinks in the Palace Hotel bar in Modena; when they left, they had the beginnings of a mid-engine grand-touring car resembling a contemporary Group 7 racer. The trio soon presented Lamborghini with a completed design that would become the world’s first mid-engined road-going sports car. The design reflected the young Dallara’s brilliance: a two-passenger platform elegantly devised in three main sections front to back with side and center boxed sections generously perforated to save weight yet strong enough to provide the needed rigidity for high-performance handling. After seeing the concept, a delighted Lamborghini enthusiastically approved the project, and after an intense period of development and final styling revisions by Bertone’s Marcello Gandini, the finished prototype amazed the assembled at the 1966 Geneva show. In a brazen act of showmanship, Lamborghini then had Wallace drive the prototype into Monaco’s Casino Square on the eve of the 1966 Monaco Grand Prix, drawing an enthralled crowd when the V-12’s sonorous exhaust note echoed off the surrounding buildings. Discovered several years ago in long-term storage, Autotelaio n. 3802 remains unrestored, retaining the original Rosso Corsa paint and Skay Nero interior; even the Pirelli Cinturato CN12 tires are factory originals. Perhaps its most interesting feature is the tinted clear-plastic rear-window louvers that were in place when the car was first discovered in storage; to this day it is the only known example with that feature. As an S model, this Miura’s original Pirelli Cinturatos are 70-series versions fitted to Cromodora alloy knock-off wheels. It is powered by the 370 HP version of the four-cam 3.9L V-12 engine with larger 30 mm intake-port diameters and refined combustion chambers, backed by a 5-speed manual transaxle. Looking past the chromed window surrounds introduced on the S model, the interior shows the upgraded upholstery and paneling, power windows, improved ventilation and new switchgear that also denote the S. This rare opportunity to own a highly original, unrestored example of Lamborghini’s original supercar is made even more attractive by its low odometer reading of 46,045 kilometers, equaling 28,613 miles.
F115 2005 Ford GT 1FAFP90S45Y400606 $325,000.00 $375,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Quicksilver GT over Black leather. Perhaps the most dramatic design of all American supercars, the resurgent Ford GT was destined to be a true collector vehicle from its introduction. If you have been considering ownership of one of these remarkable automobiles, there is little in words that will add to the desirability of this 2005 example. Showing a mere 1,902 on the odometer, one of the most striking things about this car’s appearance is that it is one of just 26 featuring the side-stripe-only package on the Quicksilver GT paint option, of which only 154 examples were created that year. Of course, while the overall design was reminiscent of those 1960s examples that had won in places like Le Mans, this release is far more advanced in functional execution and takes advantage of modern engine design. The mid-mounted powerplant is a supercharged 5.4L DOHC 32-valve 550 HP V-8, capable of a 205 MPH top speed. “Motor Trend” recorded a 0-60 MPH time of 3.4 seconds. It is backed by a 6-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential, while stopping is ably done via monstrous Brembo red-caliper disc brakes. The double-wishbone suspension and well-conceived overall restructuring leave no doubt that you are in the 21st century. Inside, that impression continues, as the car came with air conditioning, tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, power windows, seats and mirrors, abundant leather trim, keyless remote and textured rubber floormats. However, this example received the optional McIntosh stereo, which included an 8-inch subwoofer and 1-inch A-pillar speakers as well as BBS wheels. Created and purchased with preservation in mind, this sale will include the owner’s manual, two window stickers, both key fobs, the car cover in its bag, hang tags and a Certificate of Authenticity, with a battery tender to ensure it is ready to go when you are. Despite the difference in decades, the Ford GT continues to be a trendsetter in American supercar production and desirability. This example meets every standard.
F116 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster 198.042.8500295 $900,000.00 $1,200,000.00 $1,072,500 €926,245 Mid DB-534 Fire Engine Red over Tan leather. Sold new in Caracas, Venezuela, this 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster remained in that South American country until it was imported to the United States in 2014. Introduced at the Geneva Auto Salon in 1957, the 300SL Roadster was the natural derivative of the famed 300SL “Gullwing” Coupe that re-established postwar Mercedes-Benz as a world-class sports-car manufacturer. Chief Engineer Rudi Uhlenhaut had conceived the Gullwing’s predecessor, the racing-purposed W194, the success of which led New York City automobile importer Max Hoffmann to guarantee a thousand orders from his American clientele for a road-going version. Uhlenhaut responded by marshaling what limited resources he had at his disposal to produce the Gullwing Coupe, which redefined the grand-touring automobile. The 300SL Roadster further refined the concept, with an increase in its 3.0L inline-6 from 8.55:1 to 9.5:1 compression, an improved cam and fourth-generation Bosch fuel injection combining for 250 HP. A new low-pivot rear independent suspension improved road holding, and plusher seating and increased luggage capacity made the roadster an all-around more comfortable performer. This lovely 1958 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster is documented with a copy of the original build sheet that confirms its matching-numbers chassis, body, engine, 4-speed transmission and differential. Recently refinished in correct code-DB-534 Fire Engine Red, its original beige top and interior were also replaced with a new saddle leather interior and tan soft top accompanied by a well-fitting white-painted auxiliary hardtop. It has also received a mechanical sorting that included undercarriage detailing, new stainless-steel exhaust, new shocks and a new brake booster, all performed by a 300SL specialist. Fitted with European headlights, bumper guards and the original high-gloss chrome-plated wheels with painted centers, it includes a functional Becker Mexico radio, VDO in-dash clock, tool kit, jack and a reproduction owner’s manual. One of only 324 produced in 1958, this Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster’s beautiful cosmetics, superb mechanicals and documented matching numbers highly recommend it to the demanding collector.
F117 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Big Brake E57S105073 $450,000.00 $550,000.00 $522,500 €451,248 Mid Onyx Black and Silver over Red leather. The introduction of Rochester Ram Jet fuel injection to capitalize on an increase in displacement to 283 CI put Corvette at the leading edge of performance in 1957. No fewer than four “Fuelie” engines were offered under RPO 579: A and C versions combining a hydraulic cam with 4-speed manual and Powerglide automatic transmissions, respectively; 579B with 10.5:1 compression and the Duntov solid-lifter camshaft; and 579D, which added cold-air induction developed in competition at Daytona and Sebring. Known as the “Airbox” option, it incorporated an intake plenum (the air box) mounted on the driver’s-side fender well at an opening in the radiator bulkhead. This fed cool—and therefore denser—outside air through a filter contained within, along a rubberized duct to the Rochester fuel-injection unit, unleashing even more horsepower. This highly potent, competition-purposed induction system was available with the new Borg Warner 4-speed manual transmission (the first 4-speed ever offered in any Chevrolet) and a column-mounted 8,000 RPM tachometer driven by cable from a special distributor rather than the generator. It also included a heavy-duty right-side engine mount (both this and the distributor-drive tach would become standard equipment in 1958) and significant rerouting of underhood wiring; deleting the heater and radio for racing eliminated the need for electrical feeds but also underhood ignition shielding, allowing the ignition wires to be routed more directly to the spark plugs and away from the exhaust manifolds. Other competition-developed options were offered in conjunction with RPO 579D. RPO 684 Heavy Duty Racing Suspension, also known as the “Big Brake” package, included special springs and shocks, a heavy-duty front sway bar, quick steering adaptor, metallic brake linings, finned brake drums with fresh-air ducting to the rear, and “elephant ear” cooling scoops up front. This required further rearrangement of the underhood wiring to accommodate the extra ducting required to cool the brakes. A Positraction rear end with one of four available final drive ratios was required with the Big Brake package. Only 43 Corvettes were built with the “Airbox” package, which was met with accolades from the American motoring press, including Kenneth Edwards of “Sports Car Graphic,” who purchased this Onyx Black “Airbox” convertible with almost every option available with the exception of power windows. Edwards raced the car at both the drag strip and road courses until selling it in 1962. An extensive title search reveals the car remained in Iowa for most of its life, and by 2007, it was put through an NCRS Top Flight-winning restoration by collector Buddy Herin. Originally equipped with a 4.56:1 rear end, it now runs a 4.11:1 gearset in the original axle housing. The car also sports a contrasting red interior with power soft top and Wonderbar radio; painted steel wheels and dog-dish hubcaps nail down its factory-racer vibe. This rare Airbox Corvette is a factory 4-speed car built after the first Borg Warner 4-speeds began appearing late in 1957 production. It is offered with known ownership history, title search, letters from previous owners and an extensive photographic record of its restoration. Mecum 2017 Not Sold $450k estimate.
F118 1967 Porsche 911RS 304769 $200,000.00 $225,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Ivory over Beige. Beginning in June 1966, Porsche began to develop the exclusive 911 Deluxe RS examples that are rarely known of today, even by the most knowledgeable marque enthusiasts. Porsche utilized 253 previously completed wood-dash, Webasto-heater cars—chassis numbers 304703-304955—that had been removed from available sales inventory. Porsche then issued RS Ex. 13/66, the bulletin that instructed factory technicians of the changes to be made to the 253 cars that would create the new model to be offered: the 1967 Porsche 911 Deluxe RS. The factory Kardex build sheet for Serial No. 304769 verifies this car as one of the 1967 Porsche 911 Deluxe RS models produced in European configuration, and it retains its matching-numbers engine, Engine No. 907962. The Ivory color combined with a Kunstil Schwartz Pepita interior and sunroof are all additionally verified on the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity accompanying the car. The handwritten notes on the Kardex show that of the 253 cars, this car was even singled out for additional desired internal modifications. The changes from its original configuration were for further factory use from July 19, 1966, through November 10, 1966. The modifications to this car included the transaxle gears being changed to the new 911S ratio. The original engine block received the S crankshaft and S rods, marked and pulled from the best weight-matched produced parts available from the top 5 percent of production. Model-year 1967 S piston and cylinders with the smaller second ring allowed for higher compression, while ‘67 S heads with larger ports and 1mm-larger valves, ‘67 S cams, forged rocker arms and the ‘67 S IDS Webers with the secondary accelerator pump included combined for nearly 200 HP with a high state of tune from the race-bred nature of Porsche’s soul. The body received enlarged rear wheel arches to test wider offset wheel-and-tire combinations, and it came with wheel spacers and extended studs for increasing the rear track. This was a common procedure with factory trial cars in the workshop, both prior to and continuing at this time, as development of the R model was soon to come and momentum was building toward the desired RS model’s creation. With all of the modifications completed and 7,600 kilometers of testing run, the predecessor to the first Porsche RS was styled by these design changes The unique history associated with this chassis leaves a fine example thought to be one-of-one and very unique among the 911 Deluxe RS cars built. This car received a sympathetic and meticulous restoration by a respected marque specialist that cost $175,000. The numbers-matching engine was disassembled and deemed to be in excellent condition with only new bearings, piston rings and seals being replaced. Meanwhile, carburetors were rebuilt to proper specifications and the transmission reconditioned with new synchros, a clutch, pressure plate and flywheel replacement. The original interior, with the exception of the new headliner, has remained untouched and reflects the honesty and pristine condition of this car, including the original seats. The body is laser straight with uniform gaps and flawless paint application. The underside is detailed and the suspension was restored after being completely removed. This Porsche features the original four-headlamp screw European light configuration restored to as-new and matches the four-corner European lens display. This is an opportunity to own a first-generation RS, one that is an ultra-rare, highly optioned, historically significant and Kardex-documented car. This beauty achieved exceptional use in its first months of completion, and has today accumulated only 72,000 original kilometers. The sticker on the windshield reads “STUTTGART INSPECTED COMMUNITY,” and is original to the car.
F119 2005 Ford GTX1 1FAFP90S05Y400621 $350,000.00 $425,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black amd Gold over Black leather. Ford drew deeply from its racing history to produce the 2005-2006 GT, the magnificent reimagining of the world-beating, Le Mans-dominating GT40 that knocked Ferrari off the World Endurance Championship throne it had occupied from the 1950s into the mid-‘60s. Drawing from that rich history prompted the GT project’s assistant chief engineer Kip Ewing to recall one of the most interesting variants of the GT40, the 1966 Sebring 12 Hours-winning X-1, an open-cockpit GT40 MkII driven to victory by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby. Working with the support of Ford’s SEMA Technology Initiative, Ewing chose Mark Gerisch, founder and president of Genaddi Design Group in Green Bay, Wisconsin, to produce a 30-car series of GTX1 roadsters. Gerisch, a highly respected coachbuilder famous for performing topless conversions to the world’s most exotic automobiles, worked with Ewing and Ford’s SEMA team to insure the final product met Ford OEM standards. This 2005 Ford GTX1, No. 24 of the 30 produced, is the only one adorned in the combination of black with gold striping and accents. Powered by Ford’s 5.4L V-8 mated to a 6-speed transaxle, it benefits from several significant performance enhancements, including a high-volume Whipple supercharger, Stainless Works exhaust, adjustable coilover shocks, Wilwood brakes with two-piece rotors and a transaxle cooling system. Smoked headlights and tail lights, a carbon-fiber splitter, diffuser and rockers, and Michelin Pilot Sport radials on custom GTX1 alloy wheels add a competition edge to the GTX1’s black and gold livery. In addition to its rare larger trunk (one of only three installed in the 30 cars built), this one-of-a-kind Ford GTX1 features Sparco racing seats, an aluminum short-throw shifter, extensive carbon-fiber trim and gold accents. Autographed by many notable racing and industry figures including Carroll Shelby, Roger Penske, Henry Ford III, Edsel Ford, Dan Gurney, Mario and Michael Andretti and Tony Kanaan, this is a superb and historically fascinating interpretation of the Ford GT, one built with Ford’s official blessing.
F120 1965 Porsche 356SC Coupe 134169 $180,000.00 $225,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Light Ivory over Black leather. Freshly restored to the highest standards, this rare and highly desirable Porsche 356SC was given a comprehensive restoration from a bare-metal tub free of any visible metal damage. The body received an extensively detailed paint and undercoating, including beneath the dash and in all the jambs. From the new properly loomed wires, an authentic wiring harness was installed with restored instrumentation, including the gauge faces and chrome bezels. The suspension had been restored with powder-coated backing plates, steering arms, trailing arms and other items underneath the car with the proper-looking finish all reinstalled with new components as available, including the new Koni shocks, trailing-arms bushings, brake lines and the master cylinder with the calipers rebuilt and plated as when new. The original hardware to the car was refinished to as-new condition with cadmium plating and zinc oxide. With the rebuilt transaxle and shafts all detailed with one-piece axle boots and proper clamps, the engine was reinstalled after a complete and proper machining of the case, crank shaft, connecting rods and cylinder heads with new valves and pistons with new cylinders, flywheel, clutch pressure plate and throw-out bearing. The mechanics were assembled with rebuilt Solex carburetors, new powder-coated oil-filter canister and fan-shroud housing with a rebuilt generator and engine tin. Finished with the latest 356-style heater-system exhaust configuration with a new muffler and pipes, the engine compartment presents today as the car was originally configured. The interior is new with proper German vinyl. The perforation of the seat material was done and then installed on restored seat pans with new pads and chrome hinges that had been disassembled, re-chromed and put back together. The steering column was removed and restored with new paint and bushings along with a restored turn switch indicator, including the new chrome on its lever, and was installed with an original LL wooden steering wheel. The radio was sent out for restoration and the original speaker grilles have been restored with functioning speakers and a red dot antenna installed. The gear selector locks in the reverse position and has been restored with a new key at the time of the gear-shift assembly being restored with the re-chromed shift lever. The outside door-handle locks have been restored with the buttons and handles being re-chromed after the pins of the lock were removed and replaced for assembling them onto the car with the original keys and matched to the ignition switch as originally delivered. The fit and finish shows a high level of attention to detail, especially the body lines and overall quality of restoration workmanship. All-new brightwork, factory-marked Sigla windshield, weather stripping and moldings finish off the beauty of this 356SC. One man did all of the triple-plated chrome finish on this car to achieve the best, blemish-free results possible. The bumper guards are restored originals, while the original horn grilles were restored to retain originality with new anodized bright dip. Completed with the hand-cut plastic trunk liner for the 70L tank, the gold-plated Porsche and SC emblems on the rear, the valve-stem retaining wires on the tires, the factory decals, hand-painted nuts and bolts as detailed from the original delivery and felt-tip washers on the chrome door vent window pivots, the level of craftsmanship must be seen in person. Accompanied with the original tool kit, factory owner’s manual, Kardex Build Sheet and Certificate of Authenticity, this car meets investment-quality requirements.
F121 1968 Shelby GT500 Fastback 8T02S12953700545 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 $132,000 €113,999 6% Wimbledon White and Blue over Black. Originally delivered by Schmidt Ford in Baltimore, Maryland, as part of its Shelby Summer Sales push, this Wimbledon White 1968 Shelby GT500 Fastback shows 63,684 miles on the odometer and is listed in the Shelby American Automobile Club Registry. This example is No. 545 in the 1968 production run, which occurred in Ford’s backyard that year after Lee Iacocca’s gang relocated their specialty Mustang assembly line from Carroll Shelby’s California facility to the A.O. Smith plant in Livonia, Michigan. A.O. Smith rolled out 4,451 Shelbys in 1968, including 1,020 GT500 fastbacks, plus another 1,053 GT500KR fastbacks fitted with Ford’s hot, new 428 Cobra Jet V-8. Also making big news in 1968 were the first Shelby convertibles sold to the public, available in both big-block GT500 and small-block GT350 forms. Additional firsts in all cases included a standard console (incorporating Stewart Warner gauges for oil pressure and amperage), safety-conscious side marker lights outside at each corner and larger Thunderbird sequential tail lights in back in place of the Cougar units introduced the previous year. Standard mag-style wheel covers continued from 1967 but were slightly updated, as was the breed’s official name, with Michigan-built cars now marketed under “Shelby Cobra GT 350/500” banners. A roll bar, with inertia reels and shoulder harnesses, also made an encore appearance, along with optional 15-inch, 10-spoke aluminum wheels, shod here in era-correct Firestone Wide Oval tires. Though thoroughly popular back then, as well as now, the Hurst T-handle shifter in this GT500 furthermore represents an owner-preferred aftermarket addition—a Ford-sourced gear-changer was included with the optional 4-speed Toploader transmission in all 1968 Mustang applications. Beneath this GT500’s fiberglass hood is 1968’s standard 360 HP 428 Police Interceptor V-8, topped by a single 4-barrel carburetor. Dressed in Wimbledon White with signature blue striping, this GT500 is equipped with power steering and brakes, a Philco AM radio and Lucas fog lights.
F122 1951 Ford F1 Restomod B0BC219664 $135,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue over Black and Grey. Built by Premier Street Rods of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, this custom 1951 Ford F1 Resto Mod pickup takes advantage of the extremely successful styling introduced in Ford’s classic postwar “Bonus Built” line of light- and heavy-duty pickup trucks. Beautifully finished throughout, this is a premium custom build performed by the customizing industry’s leading talents using only the best parts and materials. Premier is noted for its superior-quality vintage pickup-body components, and here they have been employed and finished to stunning effect in shimmering PaintHouse Super Blue; the only interruptions to its glass-smooth surfaces are its Lokar Goolsby Edition billet door handles and color-matching dual outside mirrors. The gorgeous paint is contrasted with an interesting aluminum vinyl-wrapped cargo-bed floor, silver-painted grille and hood emblem, and Halibrand-style U.S. Mags Rambler U111 painted alloy wheels wearing Toyo Proxes STII tires. The F1 rides low on a custom-fabricated and engineered TCI chassis, likewise finished and detailed to concours quality and fitted with a custom-fabricated aluminum fuel cell, RideTech air suspension with Shockwaves and AccuAir controllers, and 4-wheel disc brakes. BluePrint Engines built the 347 CI Ford Stroker small-block V-8 nestled in the smoothed confines of the engine compartment. It’s equipped with Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection and tube headers exhausting through custom 2.5-inch side exhaust with oval chromed tips, and it’s backed by a Ford automatic transmission with overdrive and a Currie Ford 9-inch rear end. Famed upholstery and interior wizard Ron Mangus worked his magic inside the F1’s nicely customized cab, fitting hand-stitched black leather upholstery for the bench seat, door panels and padded dash, accented with gray suede inserts. Interior features include a Billet Specialties steering wheel on a tilt column, Dakota Digital VHX gauges, Vintage Air, electric windows, pushbutton start and E-Stopp pushbutton emergency brake. A popular feature at SEMA 2017, this Premier-built F1 Resto Mod is a stunning amalgamation of power and panache and was a cover feature in the March 2018 issue of “Street Trucks Magazine.”
F123 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 BN4 Roadster BN4L-0-41476 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue over Black. Fans of postwar-era British sports cars will recognize the 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 BN4 Roadster as a classic of the period, one of the triumvirate of cars produced from 1953 through 1967 known collectively as the “Big Healeys,” but this is no garden-variety example of Donald Healey’s sporting creations. Instead, it is the culmination of modifications that have transformed it into a serious road burner with the heart of a 6.2L V-8 engine introduced in the 2008 Corvette. Built and tuned by noted GM performance specialists Scoggin-Dickey Chevrolet Buick in Lubbock, Texas, this Healey’s LS3 incorporates custom long-tube headers flowing into 2.5-inch pipes with Flowmaster mufflers and electric cutouts. The LS3 was dyno tested at 559 HP and 506 lb-ft of torque, which it feeds through a Centerforce clutch inside a Lakewood explosion-proof bellhousing to a Hurst-shifted Richmond 6-speed manual transmission. A 14-gallon fuel cell and Aeromotive fuel pump fulfill the V-8’s appetite, and a modified Ford 9-inch rear end with 3.73 Tru-Trac limited-slip differential completes this car’s heavy-duty driveline. To handle all that power and torque, the car features a reinforced tube chassis with a four-point 2.5-inch padded roll bar and driveshaft safety loop. Suspension is by tubular A-arms up front working in concert with Martz coilover shocks, and a Watts 4-link rear with Aldan coilovers; disc brakes are used at all four corners. The Healey’s gorgeous shape is rendered in steel and aluminum composite and finished in classic blue with white stripes, with ample venting to release pent-up heat and high-pressure air. The body was also tubbed to accommodate the car’s wide 10-inch wide BF Goodrich G-Force tires, which are mounted on sturdy Dayton 72-spoke wire wheels for a traditional period look. Fitted inside with vintage-style Stewart Warner gauges and RCI five-point harnesses, this professionally built Austin-Healey comes with a one-off removable hardtop and OEM side curtains.
F124 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III BJ8 Roadster HBJ8L/39179 $80,000.00 $110,000.00 $110,000 €95,000 Mid Blue over Blue. A gold-concours winner, this 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII BJ8 Roadster was the subject of a comprehensive restoration and has covered only 18,053 believed-original miles since new. A one-owner, West Virginia car for most of its life, 42,926 of these little jewels were produced between 1963 and 1967, approximately 17,000 of which were MkIIIs. Austin-Healey established itself early on as a performance leader, able to compete with more expensive cars with ease. Their price point made them popular with motoring enthusiasts and racers alike, but they were also coveted by people who just enjoyed a wonderfully behaved sporting car, particularly the later examples. The Austin-Healey 3000 was introduced in 1959, the big 3000cc inline 6-cylinder engine replacing the 100-6 and its 2600cc engine. Because of the larger engine, of course, performance improved, but the 3000 MkI also brought about an overdrive transmission, disc brakes, laminated windshield, adjustable steering column, heater and an optional detachable hard top. With the MkII introduced in 1962, the sports car began to take on a more mature stance with roll-up side windows and a quick-action folding roof, but the MkIII of 1964 would be a wonderful swan song for the brand. New SU carburetors and a higher-lift cam helped the 3000cc engine find 14 additional horses for a square 150 HP. It took less than 9 seconds to find 60 MPH from zero and could top out around 120 MPH, marking it the quickest and fastest of the last “Big Healeys.” To boot, they boasted magnificently appointed dashboards with beautiful wood veneers, supportive bucket seats and several noticeable points that lent to the question, why buy anything else? Interestingly, Austin-Healey 3000s, especially the MkIIIs, have never really fallen out of favor, long enjoying a large and loyal fanbase keeping them popular. Few things stir the emotions like firing up a Big Healey and setting out for a journey upon lonely, winding roads to points unknown. The big 3.0L engine growling along and the exhaust howling a note unlike any other, suddenly the destination is not nearly as important as the journey.
F125 1932 Ford Roadster Hotrod B5075277 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 $110,000 €95,000 Mid Blue over Tan leather. This charming 1932 Ford V-8 Roadster Hot Rod is a delightfully evocative classic that will never go out of style. There will always be a special place in this world for the 1932 Ford V-8 Roadster. Formally known as the Model 18, the V-8-powered ’32 followed the Model T’s 19-year reign and the Model A’s 4-year stint, and was in production for only a year before it made way for the restyled and expanded Model 40. Yet in the 87 years since its introduction, the “Deuce” has remained the icon of American Hot Rodding. It was at the epicenter of the postwar Hot Rodding explosion that detonated in the vast expanse of Southern California’s dry lakes and spread like a shockwave across the country. The 1932 Ford’s appeal has always been in its beautiful, straightforward simplicity. Its other great strength, of course, was its relatively powerful flathead V-8 engine. The first V-8 in a lightweight, affordable production car, the flathead was as central to the 1932 Ford’s timeless appeal as its simple beauty. A rare all-steel example originally built in the 1950s, this 1932 Ford Model 18 V-8 Roadster incorporates many of the goodies that typified Rodded Henrys of that time. Mechanically refreshed several years ago, it remains in splendid overall condition. Its “old-school” 24-stud Mercury flathead V-8 features Offenhauser finned aluminum heads, triple Stromberg 97 carburetors on an Edelbrock Tri-Power intake manifold and tube headers, all backed by a 3-speed manual transmission. The car’s lustrous dark blue finish is nicely accented with yellow-painted wire wheels with chromed trim rings and “V-8” center caps. Excellent chrome is featured on the front suspension, Ford Twolite headlamps, fold-out windshield, bumpers and body trim, and the tan interior offers outstanding leather upholstery, a Deluxe banjo steering wheel, engine-turned instrument panel with “Mooneyes” gauges and two layers of Wilton carpeting. It all adds up to the ideal machine for the Hot Rodding traditionalist.
F125.1 2017 Ferrari California T 70th Anniversary Ed. 231157 $275,000.00 $300,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grigio Ferro over Grigio leather. At the 2008 Paris Motor Show, Ferrari debuted what it called a modern interpretation of the famed ’60s “California” spider. Designed to be a more day-to-day, livable grand tourer, the new California featured elegant styling by Pininfarina and was available as either a 2+2 or 2+2 GT convertible. The California ushered in a new era for Ferrari, offering customers a slew of features that were a first for the Ferrari brand, including modular architecture, an automated folding hard top, multi-link rear suspension, direct gas injection and a front-mounted V-8 engine backed by the new dual-clutch, automated, 7-speed transaxle. The California was designed to be a true GT, a luxurious performance car that could be driven comfortably on a day-to-day basis, a stark contrast to Ferrari’s contemporary offerings, which were often harsh, racing machines for the road. In 2014, Ferrari refreshed the California model with the release of the California T, which now boasted a revised chassis and styling, as well as a 3.9L twin-turbocharged V-8 engine producing 552 HP. The example on offer is a one-of-a-kind 70th Anniversary Edition California T, custom built under Ferrari’s “Tailor Made” program. Taking its inspiration from the 1965 275 GTB Competizione, this California T is the only one of the 70 Anniversary Edition examples finished in Grigio Ferro metallic paint, with Scuderia shields, Grigio Scuro special stitching in the leather interior and Grigio Scuro prancing horses stitched onto the headrests adding to its visual appeal. With only 49 miles on the odometer and rolling on 20-inch diamond-forged wheels, this bespoke Ferrari also features the HSHS Special handling package, HELE High Emotion, Low Emission system and U.S. visibility equipment. Inside the Ferrari, the leather headliner is complemented by the simulated wood-grain console and door-panel accents, as well as the aluminum driver and passenger foot rests; a white-faced rev counter helps the driver keep an eye on engine vitals. This 2017 California T presents a unique opportunity to acquire a truly unique modern Ferrari.
F126 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S WP0AD2A95HS166385 $170,000.00 $190,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A GT Metallic Silver over Bordeaux Red leather. Offered at just 7,970 miles, this 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S is a sensational automobile by any measure, even those standards set by one of the most storied manufacturers in the history of the automobile. The Turbo concept has come a long way since its bold entry into the shaky world market of the mid-‘70s, evolving from a raw-nerved, deliciously unpredictable bad boy to its present incarnation in S trim as the grandest of grand-touring machines, one that inspires confidence all the way up to the outer limits of its performance. And those limits are lofty indeed: the Turbo S’ twin-turbocharged 3.8L flat-6 engine churns out 580 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque on the strength of unique turbochargers with larger impellers, a new injector design and higher fuel pressure. Porsche’s excellent variable valve timing maximizes power output across the engine’s operating range, working through the paddle-shifted PDK automatic gearbox and all-wheel-drive system to produce computer-controlled launches to 60 MPH in a mind-numbing 2.9 seconds. In addition to astonishing acceleration, the 2017 Turbo S is capable of more than 200 MPH, but there is more than raw power at work. The steering-wheel-mounted drive-mode selector allows the driver to trim the car’s performance to suit road conditions or driving styles, and the Turbo S’ dynamic roll control and carbon-ceramic 4-wheel disc brakes with yellow-painted calipers combine with Pirelli P-Zero tires on light alloy wheels for incredible handling and stopping. Sharply finished in GT Silver Metallic with a Bordeaux Red leather interior, this 2017 Turbo S shows the handsome aesthetic revisions to the 2017 model that included revised front air intakes and LED cornering lights, 3D-effect LED brake lights and a reworked rear deck and spoiler with revised ducting. It also offers such extras as the Sport Chrono package, a premium Burmeister audio system, 14-way power seats, navigation, carbon-fiber doorsill guards, a power sunroof and the optional Light Design package.
F127 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster 7E148798 $180,000.00 $195,000.00 $154,000 €132,999 -14% Silver Metallic over Black leather. Several significant upgrades have recently been performed on this show-stopping 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster to improve both performance and durability. Derived from the full-race D-Type sports racer that won three Le Mans 24 Hours amidst countless other important international races, the E-Type was a dramatically new design with a shape so beautiful it was described by “Road & Track” magazine’s Peter Egan as looking like “a car we’d always known about but had never met, a natural shape waiting since Greek times for a modern Praxiteles to chisel away all the stone that didn’t look like an E-Type.” Adorned in the almost formal combination of Silver Metallic paint with a black bucket-seat interior and black Stayfast top, this 1967 Series 1 convertible has been stored in a climate-controlled facility, maintained in splendid condition and driven sparingly. Lifting the one-piece front clip reveals the car’s competition-bred double-overhead-cam inline-6 engine, one of the smoothest running powerplants of its time. Displacing 4.2L and rated at 265 HP, it has been balanced and blueprinted to peak output and upgraded with performance camshafts, stainless-steel tube headers and exhaust system, a heavy-duty radiator and a new expansion tank. The stock 4-speed manual transmission was replaced with a more flexible Getrag 5-speed, which drives a 3.31:1 limited-slip differential. Other new components include heavy-duty sport springs and adjustable Carrera shock absorbers, heavy-duty sway bars, a new fuel tank, fuel pump and Grose carburetor jets, cooling system belts and hoses, Pertronix electronic ignition, Optima battery, clutch slave and brake master cylinders, seat belts, and an AM/FM/cassette player. The car’s 4-wheel disc brakes have also been updated to performance-grade units using vented discs for improved heat dissipation and shorter stopping distances. Identified by the chromed wire wheels and covered headlights that were signature features of these early E-Types, this 1967 Series 1 is a fine performer that is widely considered the best of all E-Type series models made.
F128 1953 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible 536213434 $80,000.00 $110,000.00 $66,000 €57,000 -18% Grey over Grey and Red leather and Tan top. Restored to its original splendor, this 1953 Cadillac convertible represents the pinnacle of 1950s luxury. Gray with a tan top and two-tone red and gray interior that features leather upholstery, this long and low Cadillac is a Series 62 model, which was available throughout the Cadillac’s third generation (1948-1953). As you’d expect from America’s top luxury-car manufacturer, the 1953 Cadillac came standard with an automatic transmission (either the 4-speed Dual-Range Hydra-Matic or Buick’s Dynaflow), dual exhaust, a clock above the glovebox, chrome bumpers and trim, and full carpeting. This Series 62 is also well equipped with optional hydraulic-lift power windows, power steering, a signal-seeking radio, dual mirrors, fender skirts and chrome wire wheels with wide whitewall tires. For 1953, Cadillac mildly restyled its models with a redesigned grille that incorporated a heavier bumper and bullet-shaped bumper guards, parking lamps under the headlights, chrome eyebrow headlight doors and one-piece windows. The Series 62 body styles were identified by non-louvered rear fenders, bright metal trim and the Cadillac crest and V-shaped emblem on both the hood and decklid. Also, 1953’s V-8 engine, used since 1949, got more output, thanks to an increased compression ratio and upgraded 4-barrel carburetor, a combination that could easily propel the big Cadillac to more 100 MPH. Notably, the 1953 Cadillacs were the first with the more reliable 12-volt charging system, and the hydraulic brakes were updated to 12-inch finned cast-iron drums front and rear. The majority of the 85,446 Cadillacs built for 1953 were Series 62 models. However, only 8,367 were non-Eldorado convertibles. This restored 1953 Series 62 Cadillac offers the best of American 1950s luxury with robust V-8 power and elegant styling in a highly desirable color combination.
F129 1968 Shelby Shelby GT350 Fastback 8T02J14951701804 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Sunlit Gold over Black. In today’s world of ultra-collectible Shelby Mustangs, it’s rare to find a GT350 or GT500 with a tasteful combination of originality and modifications. Externally, this Sunlit Gold 1968 Shelby GT350, Shelby No. 01804, is a lustrous fastback adorned with desirable 10-spoke Shelby wheels. The matching-numbers 302 CI engine has been rebuilt, blueprinted and balanced with its original date-coded 4-barrel heads, aluminum Shelby dual-plane intake manifold, oil pan and radiator. However, the small-block’s horsepower has been substantially upgraded by the installation of a Paxton supercharger, which was a Shelby accessory in the 1960s. The drivetrain is also original to the car, including the close-ratio Toploader 4-speed manual transmission, 9-inch rear end with 3.89 Traction-Lok gears, and balanced driveshaft that has been detailed with factory paint codes. The suspension has been rebuilt with NOS tie-rods and end links, along with reconditioned and date-correct upper and lower control arms. The front brakes are the original power discs with date-coded calipers; the rear brakes are rebuilt original drums. The new windshield and rear glass are date-code correct. Inside, the black interior incorporates the Deluxe wood-grain trim and tachometer instrument panel, plus updates like a Hurst shifter and two additional gauges in the console for keeping tabs on the supercharger boost and fuel pressure. One of only 4,451 Shelbys built for 1968, and one of just 1,253 fastbacks, this GT350 is equipped with the unique fiberglass body panels, including the nose piece, hood with forward-placed scoops and hot-air extractors, upper and lower side scoops, trunk lid with ducktail spoiler, and the rear panel with sequential Thunderbird tail lights. As documented in the Shelby Registry, Shelby 01804 was sold new on April 20, 1968, by California performance dealer Galpin Ford. The GT350 fastback comes with a Deluxe Marti Report, build sheet and Certificate of Authenticity signed by Carroll Shelby.
F130 1972 Intermeccanica Italia Spider 50383414 $175,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Black. Like Shelby’s Cobra, the Intermeccanica Italia has attracted attention from collectors thanks to its combination of a European sports-car chassis with an American V-8 engine. Built between 1966 and 1972, the Italia roots in fact came from the Griffith, a tiny fiberglass-bodied sports car that was based on the British TVR and powered by a Ford V-8, a concept that was conceived by Jack Griffith and engineered with help from Carroll Shelby in the early 1960s. By 1966, when TVR bodies and chassis became difficult to obtain, Griffith turned to Italy’s Intermeccanica to produce a larger chassis and body. With a tubular frame created by race-car designer John Crosthwaite and a sleek, new body penned by Robert Cumberford, only a handful of Griffith-badged Intermeccanica’s were built before Griffith’s finances ran out. Stuck with expensive tooling, Intermeccanica soldiered on by moving production in-house to Italy and utilizing a Mustang powertrain provided by Ford. When Ford refused to approve the name “Torino,” the Intermeccanica sports car became the Italia. Fewer than 600 were built during the six years of production, with engine size growing from the original Ford 289 to the 302 and finally a 351, which propelled the Italia from 0 to 60 MPH in less than 6.5 seconds. This red Intermeccanica Italia Spyder is powered by the Ford 351 small-block with a 4-speed transmission. VIN 50383414 is also equipped with Ansa exhaust, rack-and-pinion steering, power brakes and steering, convertible top boot and covered headlights. The Spyder rolls on Chromodora slotted wheels with Prancing Bull chrome hubcaps and Dunlop radial tires. The black interior features a wood-rim steering wheel, Jaeger instruments and Pioneer cassette stereo. With Italian sports-car style, a powerful American drivetrain and good build quality, the rarely seen Intermeccanica Italias are sought after as a sporty and powerful Italian/American hybrid.
F131 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 194375S114272 $115,000.00 $140,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Red. A ground-up Resto Mod build with just 75 miles since completion, this superb 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe packs serious big-block power in the form of a 496 CI Mark IV engine built by BluePrint Engines of Kearny, Nebraska. It is appropriate that this fabulous mid-year coupe wields such potency; 1965 was the year Zora Arkus-Duntov finally introduced the Mark IV engine into the Corvette lineup, paving the way to a whole generation of engines that would write a new chapter in the history of America’s Sports Car. The look is classic Corvette throughout, combining glass-like black lacquer and beautiful chrome with a contrasting red interior, all faithfully finished to factory-stock configuration with the exception of such evident details as the billet controls and vents for the air-conditioning system. Chromed U.S. Mag Spade alloy wheels fitted with BF Goodrich Radials add a racy period touch to the presentation, in this case backed by Wilwood vented discs and calipers at all four corners. Below decks, a custom all-wheel independent coilover suspension system gives this vintage ‘Vette the handling to match any modern competitor while offering a comfortable grand-touring ride. The BluePrint-built 496 CI behemoth powering this jewel-like mid-year coupe has everything to satisfy the serious Corvette aficionado’s performance cravings, including a forged crank, hypereutectic pistons, 10.1:1 compression, a roller cam, aluminum heads, a 4-barrel carburetor on an Edelbrock aluminum intake, MSD ignition and tube headers feeding dual exhaust. Backed by a heavy-duty 4-speed manual transmission, the big 496 uses a high-flow Ron Davis aluminum radiator to handle its thermal output. Reflecting an investment of approximately $80,000, this is a serious build for the serious enthusiast, completed to meticulous show-winning standards in every detail, from its gleaming paint, chrome and brightwork to the hand-finished interior.
F132 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe 911 310 0875 $85,000.00 $95,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Light Yellow over Black. “Porsche: There is no substitute.” In five words, that catchphrase said it all. Seeing this 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe will only continue the dialogue. This light yellow 1973 Porsche 911T Coupe features a 2.4L/140 HP flat-6 boxer engine with mechanical fuel injection coupled to a Porsche 5-speed manual transmission. Power spins out to the reconditioned 15-inch Fuchs wheels shod with Michelin P205/60R15 radial tires. The exterior has seen one repaint, while the interior sports its original black color scheme with refreshed seat covers, contrasting nicely with the exterior. This example includes books and records. This luxury German sports car was part of the original 911 lineage that stretched from its introduction in the fall of 1963 to production end in 1989. Designed as a modern, powerful replacement for the Porsche 356, it debuted at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show. This new Porsche was originally to be named the 901, but French automaker Peugeot claimed exclusive rights to cars named by three numbers with a zero in the middle. Porsche changed the name to 911 and never looked back. With the engine located behind the rear axle and air cooling, it was a blank canvas when it came to racing. Many private teams joined along with the Porsche factory effort to compete in road, rally and other forms of racing. With all the model variations, many consider it the most successful competition car ever. The 1972-73 model years consisted of the entry-level 911T, the mid-range 911E and the highline 911S. For years, Porsche looked to replace the 911, but all the while 911 sales remained steadfast. Finally, the powers that be continued to refine the machine to become one of the best pure sports cars ever built. This 911T is an excellent example of the breed.
F133 2002 Ferrari 575M 126972 $100,000.00 $115,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grigio Argento over Nero leather. An engine-out service performed by a proper marque dealership in recent years should instill confidence in this particular 2002 Ferrari 575M. In the case of a V-12 grand tourer such as this, that means, first and foremost, comfortable and easy to handle while still fast. Built from 2002–2006, the 575M Maranello could draw on the six years of feedback its predecessor had garnered, the 550 Maranello that had brought the civilized front-engine GT flagship car back to Ferrari—quite the radical departure from the model that preceded it, the iconic and wild Testarossa. The 575M kept what was good in the 550 and made it better, and, of course, raised horsepower by means of increasing displacement. Most especially, this is a car even a tall person can comfortably sit in all day, in a relatively relaxed and normal position, and get in and out of without contortions. Also, it is the first consumer Ferrari to use paddle shifters—purists may also groan at the electrohydraulic manual F1-style transmission’s full auto mode, but those are the creature features that make this model easy to live with. (Not even a tenth of the about 2,000 cars built were ordered with a manual shifter.) Besides, only the F1-optioned models have launch control, which automatically adjusts clutch engagement and throttle position to give a 575M the best possible standing-start getaway. The Pininfarina design is classically proportioned with a long nose, short deck and relatively tall greenhouse. The cockpit is the last of the “analog” ones with a profusion of gauges and buttons. Ferraris as capable and timelessly designed as this 575M represent a good point of entry into the stratospheric world of collector V-12 Ferraris.
F134 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo 930 970 0475 $120,000.00 $135,000.00 $61,600 €53,200 -49% Grand Prix White over Black leather. First introduced to the American market in 1976, the Porsche 930 Turbo redefined the supercar by delivering blistering performance combined with the added benefit of being a car that could be utilized as a daily driver. Although most 930s served as weekend getaway cars, they really stood apart from their contemporaries from Italy and Great Britain with their ability to serve as one’s sole means of transportation. The 930 Turbo was an instant success among buyers, and dealers happily commanded a healthy premium above the MSRP. Porsche surprised its fans when the company announced that the 930 Turbo would no longer be sold in the U.S. for the 1980 model year. The announcement had the effect of enhancing the 930’s desirability among enthusiasts. The 930 Turbo was an unabashed icon of its day, and that initial rush of interest has continued unabated. Motorsports successes had a big hand in making the 930 Turbo a legend. Competition wins came in the American-based Trans-Am championship in 1976 and with an overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with its silhouette-shaped 935 racer. This particular 1979 930 Turbo is presented in the classic color combination of Grand Prix White with a black leather interior. Factory options include leather sport seats, electric sunroof and Fuchs chrome alloy wheels with detailed center caps. This car has been equipped with some upgrades such as a low-restriction twin-outlet muffler, a Momo steering wheel, boxed side rockers and a competition-style front air dam. Documentation includes 18 years of Porsche service records and 20 years of ownership records that support the odometer reading of 57,581 miles. This machine has been lowered to European ride specifications—roughly a ¾-inch drop with 1-degree of forward rake. This 930 Turbo was recently serviced and comes with the original tool bag, original owner’s manual, factory-issued books and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
F135 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback 9F02Z159781 $200,000.00 $225,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Maroon over Black. This rare 1969 Boss 429 Mustang may look stock on the outside but it has been updated in a number of areas for improved performance, starting with the hemi-head Boss 429 engine that has been stroked to 521 CI and topped by an aftermarket aluminum intake with dual-quad induction. Carrying KK No. 1393 as the 193rd Boss 429 Mustang produced, the Royal Maroon Fastback is also equipped with a Mustang II front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, rear panhard bar and traction bars. External additions include the rear-window slats, rear spoiler, driving lights behind the grille and Goodyear Eagle GT tires, while a wood-rim steering wheel has been added to the black Deluxe interior. Like all Boss 429s, this one is equipped with a 4-speed manual transmission, 9-inch rear end with 3.91 gears in a Traction-Lok differential, front disc brakes and trunk-mounted battery. Ford built the Boss 429 for two model years, 1969-70, to legalize the race-inspired engine for NASCAR competition. Only 849 were built for 1969. From the factory, the Boss 429 was the ultimate Mustang muscle car. Because the massive aluminum-head big-block was too wide for the Mustang’s engine compartment, the final build was farmed out to Ford’s contracted performance shop, Kar Kraft, where the engine was lowered into place between modified shock towers. All came with Competition Suspension and staggered rear shocks to control wheel hop during hard acceleration. Compared to other muscle cars of the late 1960s, the Boss 429 exterior was subtle with only a manually operated hood scoop, front chin spoiler, 15-inch Magnum 500 wheels and small front-fender decals setting it apart from regular Mustang Fastbacks. Every Boss 429 received a unique decal on the driver’s door with its “KK NASCAR 429” serial number. KK No. 1393 comes with a Marti Report and two shipping invoices.
F136 1961 Volkswagen Beetle 3458844 $30,000.00 $40,000.00 $107,250 €92,625 168% White Herbie livery. When planning first began on the “The Love Bug” movie in the late 1960s, it was not something Volkswagen wanted to participate in. The car company thought the movie would make light of Volkswagen’s reputation for producing slower cars. However, when they met Herbie and realized “he” would represent the brand in glorious fashion, outrunning and outsmarting the likes of Ferrari and Jaguar, Volkswagen was enthusiastically on board. The film debuted in 1968 and did very well at the box office, well enough in fact that a total of six films would be produced. Largely because of the films, the popularity of the Beetle not only sustained, but exponentially grew with each passing generation. In the most recent film from 2005, Herbie wears a number of hats, one of which is NASCAR Herbie, the most extreme Herbie ever built; the one offered here is the second of the three NASCAR variants built. Equipped with a 2300cc engine fed by two 48mm Weber carburetors and linked to a 4-speed racing transmission, this combination was tested at Irwindale Speedway and California Speedway and is capable of propelling the Beetle to nearly 140 MPH. Almost every aspect of the Beetle was upgraded to perform from the suspension and brakes to the steering and structural integrity—an adjustable beam helped lower the front of the car as low as it would go to help achieve a better center of gravity. Herbie was built on a custom pan, providing the foundation to employ an independent rear suspension, center-link steering and full roll cage. Disc brakes were installed all around behind 13-inch aluminum wheels with Goodyear 23.5×9.5×13 racing slicks. Meanwhile, the hood and trunk lid are equipped with hold-down pins. Inside, NASCAR Herbie is all business again; a JAZ fuel cell takes the place of the back seat, and competition-style gauges replace the originals. Each NASCAR Herbie cost about $75,000 to produce with $20,000 of that dedicated to the drivetrain alone.
F137 1963 Volkswagen Beetle 5472208 $30,000.00 $40,000.00 $77,000 €66,500 92% White Herbie livery. Street Racer Herbie brought a certain “Fast and Furious” flair to the 2005 film, “Herbie: Fully Loaded.” With a modified look and feel, Street Racer Herbie has enough street cred to shame most modern cars to the curb. In the film, Herbie shows Maggie Peyton—played by Lindsay Lohan—what he can do when challenged by racing driver Trip Murphy—played by Matt Dillon—in a presumably more powerful Pontiac GTO to a street race. At one point during the race, Herbie is in reverse and passes the GTO. Only six Street Racer Herbies were built, five with 2180cc engines, and this hero car equipped with an 1835cc engine with twin carburetors and 4-speed manual transmission. The definition of “Hero Car” is a little gray, but normally it refers to the best-looking car for a close-up scene. It’s the most detailed, best put together, most visually well-equipped one of the bunch. Street Racer Herbies featured unique, bright pearlescent white paint with the proper red, white and blue Monte Carlo stripes and “53” roundels, well-polished brightwork, a fiberglass hood, decklids, fenders and running board extensions, a rear spoiler and side intake ports. They also have a modified stance adding further aggression to their attitude. Rolling on staggered Goodyear NASCAR Eagle GT tires, the chrome 15-inch wheels are topped with chrome Volkswagen hubcaps, lending more to the overall bright, showy image of Street Racer Herbie. Inside, racing-style seats replace the standard seats and the tufted and textured gray and silver door panels feature color-coordinated red, white and blue stripes mimicking the famous Herbie livery. New gauges and a Grant racing-style steering wheel replace the originals, and a dash-mounted tach drives home the sporty feel. The backseat area is packed with amps, subwoofers and enough JVC speakers to fill two cars, but, in the dash, the stock AM radio remains in place. Like jazz, there are certain standards that must be observed. It also has the Herbie-specific canvas sliding sunroof. After all, Herbie put those tops on the map.
F138 1964 Volkswagen Beetle 5967896 $30,000.00 $40,000.00 $93,500 €80,750 134% White Herbie livery. In the 2005 film, “Herbie: Fully Loaded,” Maggie Peyton—played by Lindsay Lohan—meets Herbie in a junkyard. Looks can be deceiving, as Herbie had the appearance of a car that was forgotten by time and claimed by age and abuse in an unfriendly manner; rust, dirt and simple neglect added up to a forlorn look, but Herbie’s charm wooed Maggie into saving him from the yard. This is the hero car from the junkyard scene in the film. Disney talent riddled Herbie with scratches, flat tires, acres of dust and dirt, and Hollywood rust to achieve the look of Junkyard Herbie. The interior is standard-issue Beetle, with white knobs, simple gauges, a big steering wheel and vinyl-meeting-steel everywhere. It even retains the Sapphire radio. Rolling on steel wheels and radial tires, the stainless strip on the bonnet rides over the “53” roundel instead of going under it like the original. The VW emblem on the cowl was covered in the original movie, revealed in subsequent movies because Volkswagen warmed up to the idea of a racing Beetle that actually wins. The red, white and blue striping changes a little, with narrower red and darker blue; even the fonts of the famous “53” shift a bit. But it’s all in good fun and, for the modern versions of the film franchise, Junkyard Herbie is as close to the original as anyone can get. The antics behind the Love Bug franchise seem never ending, with “Herbie: Fully Loaded” being just the latest in a long succession of fun films. The opportunity to acquire Junkyard Herbie is indeed a unique one. This is the segue car from the original films to the latest; it binds the characters and plots together and proves that Herbie will never be forgotten in time or any other medium.
F139 1989 Land Rover Defender 110 SALLDHMB7FA397393 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 $49,500 €42,750 -60% Grey over Black. A recent arrival from Europe and now certified for California, this 1989 Range Rover Defender 110 has been well maintained and recently comprehensively overhauled. One of the longest-running vehicles produced under the Land Rover name, the British-manufactured Defender 4-wheel-drive off-road vehicle was a direct development of the original Land Rover series introduced at the Amsterdam Motor Show in 1948, which built a well-earned reputation as a world-class utility vehicle capable of performing in the world’s harshest environments. Production of the Defender line commenced in 1983 with the 110, so named for its 110-inch wheelbase. Riding on a revised coil-spring suspension for improved ride comfort and axle articulation, the first 110 featured a full-length hood, an updated grille, a modernized interior, a taller greenhouse and wheel-arch extensions to cover the wider off-road tires then coming into popular use. Its full-time 4-wheel-drive system employed a 2-speed transfer case and a locking center differential. Land Rover began focusing on engine development in the mid-1980s, particularly in its diesel lineup, and by 1986 its 2.5L Turbo Diesel had been well fortified with significant internal improvements. In 1988, the Turbo Diesel was further refined with a stronger engine block and crankshaft main and rod journal bearings, all culminating in an exceptionally strong and dependable powerplant. Finished in flat Charcoal Black paint, this right-hand-drive European-market 1989 Land Rover 110 features a refurbished interior with new seat covers, carpets and headliner, a new Bluetooth stereo and speakers, and new tires. Offered with export documents, a California smog certificate of compliance and a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, this is a solid, well-maintained Land Rover ready for adventure in the great outdoors.
F140 2002 Porsche 911/996 GT2 WP0AB29902S696166 $110,000.00 $130,000.00 $99,000 €85,500 -10% Black over Black leather. The GT2 has always been at the top of the performance food chain among 911 Turbos. Specifically built to satisfy the homologation rules pertaining to the FIA GT2 class, which disallows all-wheel-drive, the production version of the GT2 reflects its competition intention. This 2002 Porsche 911 GT2 is one of just 317 examples produced for the U.S. market and presents in black with matching black leather seats. It has only 34,725 original miles and has been optioned with aluminum and carbon-fiber interior appointments. The GT2 is a speed machine that has been put on a 220-pound weight-reduction diet primarily achieved through the substitution of its all-wheel-drive system for that of rear-wheel-drive only, as well as the substitution of cast-iron brake rotors for ceramic-composite brake rotors. Porsche has also added additional horsepower, elevating it from the stock Turbo rating of 415 to 462 HP in the GT2. Numerically, this translates to a 6.5 percent weight reduction with an 11.3 percent gain in horsepower. But beyond the metrics, it is the overall feel and persona of the GT2 that make it such an exhilarating experience to drive. Porsche has purposely deleted PASM—Porsche Active Stability Management—from the option list, requiring total driver involvement and quick reflexes in the absence of electronic intervention. The suspension has been lowered by just less than 1 inch, and the springs, shocks and sway bars have been recalibrated for maximum grip. A limited-slip differential is standard equipment, as is the 6-speed manual gearbox with a race-bred short-throw linkage. The Tiptronic automatic transmission is simply not available on the GT2, nor is a sunroof, which impedes airflow to the specially designed rear wing exclusive to the GT2. For those seeking a visceral Porsche driving experience, the GT2 is your car.

F141 1962 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible 21867S165181 $90,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Red. This 1962 Chevrolet Impala SS Convertible is a wonderful example of Chevrolet’s third-generation Impala, introduced just a year earlier after being restyled on GM’s B-body platform. This dual-quad 409 convertible stands as a testament to Chevrolet’s prowess to build fabulous machines during the decade of the 1960s. Full-size Chevrolet advertising of the ‘50s and ‘60s touted “Jet smooth” performance, emphasizing that the new Chevrolets had velvet-smooth rides and acceleration that was linear and predictable. The Space Age and Jet Age were both reaching apex status in America and everyone was looking to cash in, including Chevrolet. The company’s advertising was hugely optimistic of the ages and indicated a heavy relationship between the era and its cars, but Chevrolet’s interest was also indicative in its styling. By 1962, the brightwork was restrained and textured, profiles were long and slim, whitewalls had thinned down, and flatter-plane surfaces had stepped in where more bulbous design had once ruled. It was working well, as Chevrolet sales were high and the company’s racing record was very respectable. Powered by a 409/409 HP V-8 engine with dual 4-barrel carburetors and a 4-speed manual transmission, this Impala SS convertible shows just 24,800 original miles. Presented in mostly original Roman Red with an original interior of matching red, a white convertible top offsets the hot color combo. The engine bay and undercarriage are detailed, and the engine is topped with the dual-snorkel air cleaner. Inside, passengers will relive 1962 riding on bucket seats while enjoying a Delco transistor radio. The center console and engine-turned aluminum detailing helped make the interior of the Impalas one of the most interesting available at the time. Full-size spinner wheel covers top steel wheels wrapped with whitewall tires, creating a fabulous look all around for this third-generation Impala.
F142 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham 58P035234 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 $110,000 €95,000 -12% Black over Black and White. With an estimated $300,000 invested in the restoration of this 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham, it presents fabulously. The chrome, aluminum and stainless trim radiate against the black paint, especially the legendary brushed stainless-steel top. The interior matches the exterior in black and white with extensive brightwork and leather appointments. Only 300 Eldorado Broughams were built in 1958, which is easy to understand; it cost more than $13,000, marking it as the most expensive production car of the year. There is no question that the Eldorado Brougham offered a lot of car for the money, such as a six-way power seat with favorite-position memory. The trunk lid was electrically operated, and air conditioning was standard. Front and rear passengers could enjoy armrests, which were quite the amenities at a time when most cars didn’t have them, even high-end luxury cars. A unique throwback to the carriage days were the center-opening doors, which while they were a unique design feature, it was also a necessity due to the lower roofline. Center-opening doors facilitated easier ingress and egress to the rear seating areas. Cadillacs were long known for a plush ride, but the Eldorado Brougham pushed the envelope with a 4-wheel air-suspension system that provided an infinitely smoother ride over conventional suspensions. It also maintained a constant body height, regardless of the load, and provided flatter, more stable handling, especially in curves and corners. Powered by a 365 CI V-8, three carburetors fed the engine while a 4-speed automatic transmission smoothly transferred the power to the rear wheels with relatively imperceptible shifts. The Eldorado Brougham not only delivered the finer lifestyle Cadillac depicted in its advertising, but catapulted the Wreath and Crest to the pinnacle of engineering, design and luxury as well, establishing Cadillac as the benchmark in the industry, or the “Standard of the World.”
F143 2012 McLaren MP4-12C SMB11AAA5CW001197 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 $112,750 €97,375 Mid Orange over Black and Orange. Bruce McLaren would have been very proud of the way his company has carried on his legacy into the 21st century with such sensational supercars as this 2012 McLaren MP4-12C. It is also likely he would have appreciated the extra performance added to this example by a certified McLaren dealer, upgrades that were performed at an investment of some $13,000. McLaren’s engineering and design teams set the parameters for this incredible performer in 2005; the next five years involved the same methodical approach that has earned eight F1 Constructors’ Championships among its many international titles. McLaren led the way in using composites first in its Grand Prix cars and pioneered its road use in the fabulous 2003 F1, and the 12C follows that tradition with its revolutionary MonoCell carbon-fiber chassis, which is essentially forged into its final shape, and with mounting points machined to Formula 1 tolerances of +/- .02 to .05mm. To this incredibly strong yet lightweight structure are added aluminum subframes carrying hydraulically controlled all-independent wishbone suspension, specially designed disc brakes with lightweight cast-iron cross-drilled discs and McLaren 4-piston calipers. Gulping its intake charge through body-side air intakes holding twin radiators, the compact M838T all-alloy twin-turbo DOHC V-8 mounted behind the cockpit uses Nikasil-coated aluminum cylinder liners, composite cam covers, dry-sump lubrication and lightweight Inconel sport exhaust. The resulting 592 HP and 443 lb-ft of torque is transferred into action by a paddle-shifted 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. This potent mix of ample power and light weight is complemented with such upgrades as Pankyl Racing Systems lightweight forged control arms and Tenneco dampers. This 2012 12C bursts onto the stage in classic McLaren Orange paint on its glass-smooth exterior, but the cleanly designed cockpit perfectly suits the knowing driver who prefers a minimalist environment. Driven just 38,930 miles, this milestone road-going McLaren is already a motoring classic and an icon of the whirlwind 21st-century supercar era.
F144 1975 Ford Bronco U15GLW06639 $110,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue and White over Grey and Black. Classic sport-utility style, time-proven off-road capability and competition-level big-block Ford FE V-8 performance converge in this restored and modified 1975 Ford Bronco. Under the custom-scooped hood, the 427 CI Dart-block Ford is good for 463 HP with Edelbrock aluminum intake and cylinder heads, roller camshaft and lifters, MSD ignition and tube exhaust headers. FiTech electronic fuel injection is fed by a 23-gallon tank for long-range performance, and a Ron Davis aluminum radiator with Derale electric fan keeps the engine cool. A Phoenix 4R70W/SX overdrive automatic transmission with CompuShift controller, Atlas 2 transfer case with 3.8:1 low range, Tom Woods driveshafts and Dana 44 axles work with power steering and power disc brakes with Wilwood adjustable-bias master cylinder for driver-adjustable on- and off-road control. Contemporary comfort joins legendary all-terrain capability in the upgraded cabin. A polished billet-aluminum leather-wrapped steering wheel sits over the dash outfitted with Auto Meter analog instrumentation. Bucket seats are mounted around a Tuffy security center console with padded armrest, hidden Kenwood sound system and dual cup holders. Extensive sound and heat insulation and a carpet kit work together for cooler and quieter Bronco adventures. The classic Ford Bronco body is finished in pearlescent blue with a removable white top. Powder-coated steel front and rear bumpers with a swing-away rear tire mount and roll cage add safety and high-performance protection. High-intensity conversion headlamps in the blackout grille, polished and chrome-plated trim, “427” fender badging and custom red, white and blue raised Ford tailgate lettering set the Bronco apart from the rest. Lifted suspension is equipped with quad gas-charged shock absorbers. Flexible fender flares add plenty of clearance for the massive Mickey Thompson off-road tires on beadlock alloy wheels for maximum power transfer to the ground.
F145 1955 Chevrolet Nomad Resto mod VC55S210559 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Orange over Tan. Developed primarily for the utility and handyman business market, Chevrolet’s two-door Nomad wagon became a popular car in Hot Rodding circles early on with its enclosed rear section and popular small-block Chevy powerplant. However, additional upgrades have already been made to this example from 1955, which shows approximately 156 miles since its frame-off restoration. Beautiful throughout, this car is far from a grocery getter today. Under the hood is not a 265 but a modern 5.7L LS2 V-8 engine equipped with a body-color port-injection manifold and cold-air intake, headers coupled to dual exhaust, custom Nomad-labeled engine covers and a modern aftermarket dual-core radiator. It is coupled to an automatic transmission. Enjoyment in driving comes from power steering and power brakes with front discs and a CPP booster, while a lowered coilover front suspension gives this Nomad a low-down appearance. Most visible of the changes are the color combination, consisting of Lamborghini Orange with a white-painted roof. Chrome bumpers and trim, tinted glass, headlamp eyebrow-originating side trim and OEM emblems add substance and detail to that colorful combination. Inside is refreshed deep-cushion bench seating in beige, upholstered door panels, Ididit tilt steering column, an upgraded sound system, Dakota Digital gauges and a Vintage Air climate system. Again, the Nomad show theme carries on here, and the rear area has been carpeted and upholstered as well, including the rear door. Completing the appearance of this classic are body-matched painted steel wheels featuring both small chrome hubcaps and trim rings, wearing traditional-size blackwall tires for a period look. From the chrome inside roof ribs to the underhood detailing, this Nomad showcases the art of Rod and custom design. These cars have continued to retain interest for more than 70 years, and this is an excellent opportunity to own one of Chevrolet’s most-desirable designs.
F146 1972 De Tomaso Pantera THPNMG03374 $90,000.00 $110,000.00 N/R Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso over Nero leather. This late-production 1972 DeTomaso Pantera does a great job of playing the role of “the Italian Ford.” Designed by American Tom Tjaarda when he worked at Ghia in Turin, Italy, and powered by a Ford 351 Cleveland V-8, the mid-engine Pantera was an exotic Italian sports car with a high-performance Detroit V-8 heart. Early production issues were ironed out by the time this red and black example left the factory equipped with the pre-smog V-8 and lightweight pre-federalized split front and rear bumpers. The Pantera waits for its next owner to enjoy subtle performance upgrades and classic Italian style intact. Mounted amidships directly behind the cabin, the high-output 351 CI Ford Cleveland V-8 is prepared to meet or exceed its factory rating of 310 HP with an upgraded Holley 4-barrel carburetor fed by a performance-matched high-flow, dual-inlet, low-profile, open-element air filter. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transaxle designed and built exclusively for the Pantera by German firm ZF. Independent unequal-length A-arm suspension with front and rear anti-sway bars works with rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel vented disc brakes for supercar-level road control. The upgraded leather-wrapped MOMO sport steering wheel was fitted with a DeTomaso-logo horn insert as a nice complement to the matching stitched-leather shift knob atop the gated shifter. Electric windows and supple leather seats add luxury to sport in the resplendent interior with a 200 MPH speedometer and 8,000 RPM tachometer ready to gauge 5-second 0-60 MPH launches on the way to a 140 MPH top speed. Deep-cushion bucket seats are positioned for comfort and mid-engine stereo V-8 sound. The Pantera is poised to strike on highly polished Campagnolo staggered-width aluminum-alloy wheels equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Few cars can offer the intoxicating blend of Italian styling with American V-8 power like the DeTomaso Pantera.
F147 1974 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster UE1S25858 $90,000.00 $115,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Green Sand over Olive leather. This 1974 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster sold new at Valley Imports in Neenah, Wisconsin, was a one-owner car until just this year. Showing a believed-correct 43,043 original miles, it is offered with an extensive service and maintenance history. The Series III E-Type was the first in the line’s history to use the turbine-smooth V-12 engine introduced in 1971. The V-12 had its roots in an early design produced in 1954 that was intended to power the company’s Le Mans racers, but when Jaguar dropped out of racing after the 1956 season the project was shelved. In 1963, Jaguar purchased Coventry Climax, whose technical team included original XK engine designers Walter Hassan and William Haynes. Development of the V-12 concept then resumed, with the focus once again on producing a racing powerplant, specifically a 5.0L unit with dual overhead cams, dry-sump lubrication and Lucas mechanical fuel injection, and a factory rating of 502 HP at 7,600 RPM and 386 lb-ft of torque at 6,300 RPM. Fortune intervened once again when the Jaguar XJ13 Le Mans prototype serving as the V-12’s test bed crashed heavily in testing, eventuating the entire project’s demise. The project produced substantial lessons, however, that led to the design of the Series III E-Type’s V-12, the development of which was aimed at maintaining the E-Type’s performance in the face of increasingly rigid emissions standards. The final design incorporated flat-top combustion chambers, two valves per cylinder and single overhead cams, all in service to minimizing complexity, weight, size and noise. This one-owner 1974 Series III Roadster retains its original 5.3L V-12 and 4-speed manual transmission, just two of many fine attributes that include its lovely pairing of Green Sand paint and Olive leather interior. Equipped with chromed wire wheels, Smiths instruments and factory air conditioning, this Series III shows evidence of careful ongoing maintenance in both its clean presentation and extensive service documentation that includes the original purchase agreement.
F148 1987 Porsche 930 Turbo Cabriolet WP0EB0931HS070085 $110,000.00 $130,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Guards Red over Cream leather. One of the most daring production sports-car concepts of its time, this 1987 Porsche 930 Turbo Cabriolet will give its new owner the thrills that come with Turbo performance as only Porsche could deliver, with the added bonus of top-down motoring. Introduced into the American market in 1975, the Porsche Turbo stood out like no other production Porsche before it. Visually, it had all the trappings of a full-blown Group 4 Le Mans racer: wildly flared fenders, a front air dam and a prominent rear deck wing, and extra-wide alloy wheels shod in low-profile rubber. More than a collection of tacked-on finery, however, the Porsche Turbo was a well thought out concept, because beneath the racy exterior was a genuinely race-bred version of the 911 flat-6 engine packing a single large-volume turbocharger and the inner workings to handle its considerable input. Porsche pulled the model from the American market for a few years, but it returned in 1986 more refined than ever and available in Cabriolet form, adding even more fun to the equation. Showing a believed-correct 34,270 miles, this 1987 Porsche 930 Turbo Cabriolet is a beautifully equipped example of one of the greatest air-cooled production Porsches ever made. Its turbocharged 3.3L flat-6 is a remarkable powerplant even by today’s standards, cranking out 282 HP at 5,500 RPM and 278 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM through a specific 4-speed transaxle that takes full advantage of the Turbo’s broad power band. Its Guards Red paint is the perfect choice to emphasize the Turbo’s bold exterior features, and is nicely complemented by the Cream Beige leather interior. Dealer-installed staggered-width BBS RS lightweight modular wheels and Bridgestone Potenza tires add a nod to the racing Porsches of the period. Special features include a black self-latching power-operated convertible top, air conditioning with automatic climate control, VDO instrumentation, dual power seats and an upgraded Alpine stereo system. This very attractive air-cooled Turbo cabriolet is offered with books and tools.
F149 1959 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible 59F065714 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Pink over Pink and White. With its sure-to-catch-your-eye 1959 styling, Cadillac continued selling its traditional “standard-of-the-world” image to upward-mobile buyers who wanted the best that Detroit had to offer. Its new models were lower, longer and radical-looking. Selling points included Hydra-Matic Drive, power steering, power brakes, a tubular-center X-frame, helical-coil front and rear springs, aluminum-alloy pistons, full-pressure lubrication and Magic-Mirror acrylic lacquer finish. A new jeweled-pattern grille ran across the front. There was a grille with the same texture at the rear. The front bumper was massive, with two light-holding pods on either side plus a built-in license frame. Finned ornaments, chrome moldings and winged emblems adorned the front fenders. At the rear, towering tail fins dominated the design with two pointy tail lights emanating from the end of “guided missile” shaped bulges. The bumper ends resembled jet-engine outlets. Cadillac stroked the overhead-valve V-8’s displacement to 390 CI and the compression ratio rose to 10.5:1. Identifying features of Series 62 models included straight, sweepspear side moldings extending from the front wheel openings to the back of the car, with horizontal crest medallions below these moldings on the front fenders. The convertible window-stickered for $5,455 and added 11,130 cars to the production run. Its correct-range serial number verifies that this is a 1959 Series 62 convertible. Outstanding in its presentation, an estimated $250,000 was invested in its frame-on restoration in 2000. The car has traveled a believed-original 54,638 miles and has gone 6,000 miles since it was restored. It’s finished in pink with a black-and-white interior and a white, power-operated convertible top. In addition to the aforementioned standard features, power windows, a power seat, power mirrors, an in-dash clock, a pushbutton radio, a heater and a set of BF Goodrich Silvertown white-sidewall tires mounted on wire wheels enhance this 1950s icon.
F150 1993 Porsche 928GTS WP0AA2926PS820079 $105,000.00 $115,000.00 $93,500 €80,750 -11% Grey over Grey leather. With a trim-exclusive 5.4L V-8 producing 345 HP, this 1993 Porsche 928 GTS represents the most powerful and capable version of the 928 and benefits from GTS-specific upgrades to the suspension, bodywork and 4-wheel vented disc brakes. Enhancing its timeless design, this GTS is finished in dark gray with a matching gray leather interior. Befitting its intended mission as a long-distance grand-touring car, the luxurious interior is equipped with amenities including a power sunroof, power windows, power heated seats with lumbar support, and cruise control. It also features a stereo system with a remotely controlled six-CD changer. Currently showing just 36,509 believed-original miles, this GTS is armed with extensive documentation that includes service records from Porsche experts Import Specialists, Prestige Porsche and Wagner Garage, with records of a timing-belt and water-pump service by Willhoit Enterprises in 2011 as well. It has traveled a mere 330 miles since the major service. Ahead of its time when it was launched in 1978, the front-engine, rear-wheel-drive Porsche 928 remains an impressive design today both technically and aesthetically. While updates continued throughout its 17-year run, the GTS stands as the pinnacle of 928 evolution and is the model most sought after by collectors. This exceptional, low-mileage GTS is one of just 190 produced for the U.S. market, and one of only 54 produced with the rare and desirable 5-speed manual transmission. Listed in the 928 registry, a copy of the original window sticker is included, along with the original owner’s manual, cargo netting, tool kit, a spare tire and a battery maintainer. For the collector seeking something unique, it would be hard to find a 928 with this combination of originality, low mileage, sought-after GTS specification and exceptionally rare manual transmission.

F151 2010 Ferrari 599GTB 171669 $195,000.00 $215,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Nero Daytona over Nero alcantara. Although it long ago proved the effectiveness of the mid-engined sports and grand-touring machine, Ferrari first established its ability to wow car enthusiasts with its venerable front-engined V-12 offerings. In 2006, the Maranello firm set a new standard in that category with the 599 GTB Fiorano, an astoundingly beautiful and enormously capable mid-front-engined masterpiece of sophistication and power. As always, unwilling to rest on its laurels, Ferrari added even more drama to the 599 GTB’s act with the $30,095 Handling GT Evoluzione (HGTE) package gracing this 2010 599 GTB Fiorano Berlinetta. The core of this comprehensive package of handling and appearance refinements is a retuned suspension combining 17-percent stiffer front and 15-percent stiffer rear springs, a 1-inch-diameter front sway bar in place of the standard 599’s 0.9-inch piece, retuned adjustable shock absorbers and slightly wider front wheels wearing high-grip Pirelli P Zero tires. The 599 HGTE is also 0.4-inch closer to the pavement, includes a complement of carbon-fiber trim pieces inside and out and features Alcantara on the headliner, the center sections of the bucket seats and the floor. Finished in sparkling three-layer Nero Daytona paint with a Nero interior, this ferociously beautiful 2010 599 GTB HGTE offers all those attributes in combination with a wealth of standard and optional features that includes full-front clear bra protection, unique carbon-fiber Scuderia shields and carbon-fiber roof-trim film. Its Enzo-derived 6.0L/612 HP V-12 engine is mated to Ferrari’s F1-Superfast automated manual gearbox, which is modified as part of the HGTE package to produce insanely quick 85-millisecond shifts (versus the standard 599 GTB’s 100-millisecond times). A Capristo exhaust system with electronic/gated control allows the driver to control the exhaust note, changing from standard to full howl at the flick of a switch. The factory carbon-ceramic disc brakes remain, but HRE 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels wearing Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires replace the factory rolling stock.
F152 1999 Bentley Azure Convertible SCBZK14E5XCX61857 $60,000.00 $75,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Black leather. Although Rolls-Royce and Bentley will forever be inexorably linked in the annals of automotive history, each have their own distinctive identity and purpose. Whereas Rolls-Royce appeals to the stately and conservative, Bentley chooses to be the more flamboyant and performance-oriented of the two ultra-luxury British automakers. Case in point, this 1999 Bentley Azure Convertible is the quintessential playboy’s dream car. An elegant four-seater convertible equipped with a mammoth turbocharged and intercooled 6.75L V-8 engine, this 5,750-pound behemoth can reach a terminal velocity of 150 MPH. The engine produces 385 HP, but the real grunt is the result of massive torque, a tree stump-pulling 553 lb-ft at only 2,000 RPM enabling the big open-air Bentley to post a surprisingly quick 0-60 MPH time of 6.3 seconds. It’s amazing performance, especially considering that these speeds were achieved almost 20 year ago. This stunning Azure has been driven a mere 16,185 miles since new and elegantly presents in triple black contrasted by chrome alloy 17-inch Bentley performance wheels. The interior is simply gorgeous, richly appointed in black Connolly leather with a matching black Wilton wool carpet. The dashboard, center console and upper door sills are fitted with burled walnut, highlighted with straight-grain walnut surrounds that are matched and finished to a mirror-like sheen. These handcrafted cars were incredibly labor intensive to build. The body shell and convertible top mechanism was built at the Pininfarina facility in Italy and required major reinforcement to the frame to maintain the structural integrity of this topless status symbol. Everything was then shipped to Bentley Motors Limited in Crewe, England, for final assembly. Quality of this dimension requires both money and time, with only 141 Bentley Azure convertibles built in model-year 1999 and a purchase price approaching $400,000. All it takes is one walk around this car to understand its exclusivity and presence.
F153 1958 Jaguar Mark IX Saloon STC791013 $40,000.00 $50,000.00 N/R $23,100 €19,950 -42% Two tone Blue over Black leather. Classic style and race-proven performance engineering come together in this 1958 Jaguar Mk IX Saloon that was the last iteration of a long line of traditional large sedans before Jaguar ended production and introduced the more modern Mark X as its replacement. The luxurious and elegant performance saloon underwent a comprehensive restoration for a return to its original handcrafted condition. Jaguar Mk IX sedans destined for use in the American market were outfitted with a 3.8L inline 6-cylinder engine that was a performance upgrade over the previous year’s configuration. With dual overhead camshafts and twin SU side-draft carburetors, the engine sent 220 HP and 240 lb-ft of torque through the standard BorgWarner 3-speed automatic transmission. Burman power steering worked with the double-wishbone torsion-bar suspension, elliptical-spring rigid rear axle and 4-wheel hydraulic disc brakes for grand-touring road control and traditional long-wheelbase saloon ride quality. Performance was improved as Mark tradition carried on. The classic long-nose saloon body is finished into two-tone blue over blue paint that complements the handsome upright yet sleek and curvy design. The formal black interior is upholstered in Connolly leather over deep-cushion seating and body-color-harmonized wool carpeting. Handcrafted and fitted burled-Walnut wood flows from the door pillars, dashboard and built-in rear seat-mounted folding picnic tables. The dash-inset clock and radio keep time and entertainment. A Large 4-spoke steering wheel with column shift waits for driver command over the road ahead and Lucas fog lamps supplement main headlamps for clear vision in inclement weather. Jaguar has always built some fine sedans, and few look better than this Mk IX Saloon.
F154 1936 Ford Convertible Sedan 18-2019413 $60,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Beige over Beige. The 1936 model year heralded some major changes for the Ford lineup, which were well received by the public as some of the struggles of the Great Depression eased that year. The company sold some 930,000 cars overall, and of that group, just 0.6 percent, 5,600 units, were configured in this unique convertible sedan design. A beautiful restoration on a California car that has resided in the Monterey Bay area for many years, it would be difficult to find fault with this vehicle both as-built and at-present. The styling cues for 1936 included increased body width, a repositioned engine placement, rounder body lines and a classic vertically ribbed grille design. Under the hood of this car is the 221 CI flathead Ford V-8 engine rated at 85 HP and backed by a 3-speed manual transmission. Fords now used brakes that consisted of 4-wheel hydraulic actuated drums. However, it is the color combination that moves this car into the realm of extraordinary. Painted beige with a matched beige convertible top, the exterior features exterior hood-louver inserts, a leading-edge mastiff hood ornament, the rear-placed continental tire and stylish optional dual outside mirrors. Unlike the phaeton, all the side windows roll up and the side center dividers are removable. This car has a brown leather interior with a burled-Walnut dash and door trim, in-dash temperature gauge, 3-spoke Art Deco-design steering wheel with V-8 center, desirable floor shifter and full door panels. The separate headlamp buckets, styled tail-lamp extensions, chrome wheel covers and wide whitewall tires complete a picture of automotive beauty. This sale will include 20 Ward’s Motor Record Books, vintage tags and plates, and an estimated $18,000 in parts and restoration receipts. There are excellent early Ford V-8s for sale on a regular basis, but this scarce example is refreshed for appreciation by those who desire a version that is a cut above the rest.
F155 1958 Volkswagen Transporter 314047 $100,000.00 $135,000.00 $82,500 €71,250 -17% Green and White inside and out. This one-of-a-kind 1958 Volkswagen Transporter has recently undergone a rotisserie restoration that was so meticulous it literally looks like it could have rolled off of the assembly line yesterday. The exterior paint and body work was completed in the last year while the balance of work was finished in the last few months. The Transporter model debuted for Volkswagen at the Geneva Auto Show in 1949 and shared the Beetle’s venerable air-cooled engine. A multi-purpose model available in multiple formats—including an ambulance, police wagon, firetruck and camper to name a few—the Transporter sold more than 9 million units during its production lifetime. This particular Transporter has been restored and upgraded to the desirable 23-window configuration, featuring eight panorama windows, a German canvas ragtop sunroof and safari-style pop-out front and rear windows. Conceived by Volkswagen as a tour vehicle for people who wanted to discover the Alps, the additional windows increased visibility all around and were welcome by the many sightseers who had the opportunity to ride in one of these vehicles. This particular Transporter is finished in a two-tone turquoise and white exterior and features chrome stripping, window surrounds, headlight surrounds, door handles, wheel covers, painted original steel wheels and painted bumpers. On the interior, the Transport follows the same general styling theme and features colorful turquoise upholstery contrasted with gray carpeting. Interior amenities include a tachometer, passenger fans, chrome luggage tie-downs and adjustable and locking windows. Looking pristine is a 1300cc air-cooled flat 4-cylinder engine that is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission with a floor-mounted shifter. This machine has only been driven 20 miles since the completion of its restoration and appears to be in immaculate condition. The Transporter is just right for taking the scenic route through any type of wilderness you can imagine.
F156 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code E7FH324551 $75,000.00 $90,000.00 $61,600 €53,200 -18% Blue over Blue. This 1957 Thunderbird combines the best elements of sports-car style with brash performance. Of the 21,380 T-Birds produced that year, only 1,499 came with the E-code 312 CI V-8 equipped with dual Holley 4-barrels for 270 HP and 355 lb-ft of torque. As a rust-free California car, this Starmist Blue E-code T-Bird is the result of a six-month ground-up restoration completed in June 2018. Mileage is believed to be correct at 63,226 miles. The freshly restored Thunderbird is equipped with its matching-numbers 312 CI V-8 engine topped by finned valve covers and the early production oval air cleaner over the dual-quad carburetors. Desirable equipment includes a white hardtop with portholes, aftermarket Town and Country radio, fender skirts, heater, 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive, and dual exhaust with through-the-bumper tailpipes. The wheels are adorned with full-size wheel covers and wrapped in Coker Classic radial whitewall tires. Often referred to as “E-Birds,” the dual-quad 1957 Thunderbirds boasted similar horsepower to the fuel-injected 283s offered in the 1957 Corvette. Updated from 1956, the 1957 Thunderbird was mildly restyled with a new grille, reshaped front bumper and lengthened rear sheet metal that featured larger tail fins and room to move the spare tire into the trunk. The interior was enhanced with improved seating, a new instrument panel with round gauges in a single pod, and fully padded dash surfaces. Less visible improvements included improved engine cooling, revised spring rates, larger brakes, stiffer chassis crossmembers and a 12-volt electrical system. Ford shocked the sports-car world by switching the Thunderbird to a four-seat configuration for 1958, making the 1957 T-Bird the last as a two-passenger model until it’s reintroduction in 2002. This 1957 E-code Thunderbird comes with a blue interior, paperwork from the engine rebuild, a 1957 Thunderbird shop manual and a spare tire and jack in the trunk.
F157 2006 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti 147660 $100,000.00 $120,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grigio Argento over Blu leather. Although this 2006 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti GT was styled by Ferrari’s go-to design partner Pininfarina, it was conceived as a tribute to the famed Sergio Scaglietti—the surname pronounced “skaall-yetti” in that musical-sounding Italian manner—a master of the art of forming aluminum who rendered his magic on such works as the pontoon-fendered Testa Rossa and the gorgeous 250 GTO. Introduced in 2004, the Scaglietti GT continued Ferrari’s long tradition of front-engine V-12 2-plus-2 grand tourers that began with the 1948 166 Inter Sport. That’s a long and glorious lineage, one this Ferrari lives up to with its mixture of traditional style, passenger comfort and soaring power as only a Ferrari V-12 can deliver. In the Scaglietti, it is a 5.8L aluminum V-12 producing an ample 540 HP. Set far back in the chassis for almost perfect 45-55 front-rear weight distribution, the V-12 sends its power to a rear-mounted transaxle, in this case the excellent F1 gearbox. The second all-aluminum road Ferrari after the 360 Modena, the 612 Scaglietti’s smoothly sculpted exterior was inspired in no small part by the custom 1954 Ferrari 375 MM Italian film director Roberto Rossellini ordered for his wife, actress Ingrid Bergman. The influence is most notable in the car’s scalloped sides, its defining lines flowing into the peaked front fenders and down through high-mounted headlights to underscore the trademark Ferrari egg-crate grille. This example’s attractive silver paint finish is complemented with its optional 19-inch two-piece modular wheels carrying Pirelli P-Zero red-label tires. This Scaglietti seats four adults in comfort thanks to its set-back cabin, here featuring deeply bolstered Daytona-style bucket seats finished in handcrafted blue Connolly leather accompanied by solid-aluminum accents. Typically logical driver controls include a padded steering wheel, a central tach with linear auxiliary readouts, and elegant knurled switchgear. Driven 37,253 miles since new, this 2004 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti GT is an entirely worthy tribute to its storied namesake.
F158 2015 Ford Mustang GT350R-C 2015GT350RXX2 $150,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black race livery over race. Shortly after Ford introduced the 2015 Shelby GT350 and track-ready GT350R, Ford Performance announced the 2015 Shelby GT350R-C as a true competition version for the Grand Sport class in IMSA’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge race series. This rare GT350R-C is one of only two built, as manufactured by long-time Ford racing partner Multimatic Engineering. This GT350R-C possesses special competition history, having raced as No. 158 during the 2015 season with co-drivers Jade Buford and Austin Cindric who drove the GT50R-C to victory at Mosport. For 2016, the car returned as No. 76 with drivers Paul Holton and Pierre Kleinubing to help Ford win the Manufacturer’s Championship. Under the race efforts managed by Multimatic, the GT-350R-C competed at North America’s top road courses, including Daytona International Speedway, Sebring, Watkins Glen and Laguna Seca. To prepare the GT350R-C for the rigors of IMSA competition, Multimatic Engineering started with the Shelby GT350R and upgraded to race specifications with a seam-welded unibody, FIA-spec roll cage, 21-gallon fuel bladder and a FIA/IMSA-compliant fire-suppression system. Powered by the production Shelby GT350R’s 5.2L flat-plane crankshaft V-8 with a naturally-aspirated 536 HP, the race engines were prepped for endurance racing with a Bosch ECU and stainless-steel Ford Performance exhaust system. Likewise, the Mustang’s new fully independent suspension was enhanced by Multimatic’s DSSV setup with revised spring rates, lower ride height, adjustable dampers, race-spec bushings and ball joints, adjustable anti-roll bars and 18-inch BBS multi-spoke aluminum wheels. The anti-lock brakes incorporated Brembo four-piston calipers, slotted rotors and race-tuned Bosch ABS controller. This 2015 GT350R-C offers a rare opportunity to acquire a factory-commissioned, competition-prepped Shelby Mustang with documented race history. Its current livery features paintings by Jeff Hanson. Developed for use on closed-course race tracks, the Shelby GT350R-C cannot be titled for street use—it’s a pure racer.
F159 1987 Porsche 930 Turbo WP0JB0939HS050584 $105,000.00 $135,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grand Prix White over Black. One of the most sought-after and respected cars in its day, the 930 Turbo has rightfully earned its place as a legend in the Porsche world. There is little doubt that Porsche was the first automaker to improve turbocharging to the point that it nearly elevated forced induction to an art form. One of a mere 1,605 Porsche 930 Turbo coupes exported to the U.S. for model-year 1987, this classic machine is presented in Grand Prix White contrasted by a black leather interior. The car is factory optioned with an electric sunroof, Fuchs alloy wheels with body-color-keyed centers, Blaupunkt radio, limited-slip differential, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with raised hub and what is believed to be a mere 40,190 original miles. In 1986, the 930 Turbo reappeared on the U.S. market after a six-year hiatus that started in 1980. Upon its return, the car came back with all its previous virtues and some new ones as well. The engine now produced 282 HP, a nice bump over the previously imported 1979 version. In the ensuing years, Porsche had become more adept in complying with the emission laws and came up with a trifecta solution that increased horsepower, improved drivability and created less pollution. This 930 Turbo is still fast—even by today’s lofty standards—with a 0-60 MPH acceleration time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 160 MPH. It has often been speculated that the Porsche Turbo was removed from the U.S. market in 1980 to stop the sales cannibalization of Porsche’s flagship Porsche 928. With the popularity and demand for the car being too seductive to ignore, the 930 Turbo was brought back to a receptive audience. This 930 Turbo comes with its owner’s manual, warranty and maintenance book, service records and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
F160 1996 Dodge Viper GTS 1B3ER69E4TV200059 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 $41,250 €35,625 Mid Viper Blue over Black leather. Much has changed in Detroit in the past quarter-century, but one thing has been constant—buyers still appreciate performance. From its origins as a concept revealed in 1989 to the final assembled unit leaving the now-shuttered Conner Avenue plant in 2017, the Viper was an amazing exercise in risk and reward. The 1996 Viper GTS here heralded its own part of that revolution, being the model that transitioned these vehicles from a roadster design to a true coupe. This change came about at mid-year when the second-generation of the Dodge-badged model arrived. Showing 35,270 actual miles, the design was impressive enough that the GTS version was chosen to pace the 1996 Indianapolis 500. Of course, power comes from the Lamborghini-influenced aluminum V-10 engine, which had an 8.0L displacement and was re-rated up to 450 HP for this release. The engine uses sequential-port fuel injection and is backed by a 6-speed manual transmission, a combination that was rated to exceed 170 MPH without reservation. With the engine’s heartbeat echoing though the stainless exhaust, this was not something that would sneak up on everybody. Suspension was traditional A-arm and coil spring types, with a limited-slip differential and power-assisted 4-wheel power disc brakes allowing the driver to fully enjoy the available power. One aspect of the GTS was the so-called double-bubble roof, deliberately designed to allow additional head clearance when wearing a competition helmet. Stunningly covered in Viper Blue with white stripes, the smoothly designed Viper GTS gained immediate appeal, and things like air conditioning and the high-quality Alpine stereo equipment made it far more than a competition beast. Chrome 5-spoke wheels and blackwall tires complete the sense of seriousness, and attraction beyond its mere appearance is that it is one of just 1,166 produced in 1996. New Vipers may not be coming from Detroit today, but its legacy lives on in this special example from a great model season.
F161 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III BJ8 Roadster HBJ8L/40554 $65,000.00 $85,000.00 $71,500 €61,750 Mid British Racing Green and Tan over Black. The 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 was one of the last hurrahs of a golden age for smaller British motor builders, as global market upheaval was occurring. This example demonstrates the attributes that made the Austin-Healey combination so popular. Donald Healey’s partnership with the Austin Motor Company was initiated by the desire for an affordable sports model for export to the United States. Over several iterations, the Austin-Healey name established itself through both continued innovation and racing success at places like Sebring. The mild use of chrome and the grille treatment were unmistakable, but it was the advent of the MkIII redesign program and the large-displacement 3000cc inline 6-cylinder engine that helped seal its legacy. Those BJ-8 MkIII changes of 1963 resulted in increased interior refinements, as well as a performance boost to 150 HP. This restored example uses that engine and the 4-speed manual gearbox. It is covered in beautiful British Racing Green paint with a tan canvas top and a black interior. The 2+2 designation made this car more practical than many other sport designs despite a limited area associated with the rear seat. More recent upgrades are new stainless exhaust and a new master cylinder and servo unit. Driving lights, turn signals and bumper guards are also part of its exterior presentation. The optional chrome wire wheels with knock-offs help solidify the idea of performance here, with Austin-Healey 3000 callout tags denoting the model. The interior is a pleasant blend of British styling and race-oriented equipment, with Smiths instruments, a wood-rimmed Lecarra steering wheel and a tachometer all within easy access of the driver. Alas, big changes in American automotive regulations sent both the AC Cobra and the Austin-Healey 3000 back away from the shoreline for 1968, marking this as the final full model year of production, which itself ended soon after. Sold with a British Heritage Certificate, this convertible displays the legacy of British sports-car design, and it remains a beautiful vehicle even decades later.
F162 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Fastback 9F02G209005 $85,000.00 $100,000.00 $55,000 €47,500 -35% Bright Yellow over Black. This Bright Yellow 1969 Boss 302 has been restored as a period-correct street version of the legendary Trans Am race cars. The restoration was performed by Mustang Club of America Gold Card judge Terry Snyder, who is certified in the MCA’s 1969-70 Concours, 1969-71 Boss and Modified classes. Using Ford’s Boss 302 Engine and Chassis Modifications books, Snyder followed the recommendations for building a race-ready Boss 302 with vintage performance components from Ford’s Muscle Parts program. Notably, the Boss 302 engine is equipped with the unique Cross Boss aluminum intake and Autolite inline 4-barrel carburetor, an induction system designed by Ford for Trans Am racing but banned by the SCCA. Very few were produced and they are rarely seen today. The balanced and blueprinted canted-valve engine is also equipped with high-compression pistons, custom-ground solid-lifter cam, 289 High Performance dual-point distributor and Ford Powertrain Applications tubular headers. Because Ford never offered an air cleaner for the inline 4-barrel, Snyder custom fabricated an oval version from billet aluminum. The Ford-tough drivetrain consists of a close-ratio Toploader 4-speed and 9-inch rear end with 3.91 gears and Traction-Lok differential. Per the Chassis Modification book, the Boss 302’s factory Competition Suspension has been upgraded for improved handling by Koni adjustable shock absorbers, lowered A-arms and larger sway bars, while the battery has been relocated to the trunk for improved weight distribution. The 4-wheel disc brakes can be seen through the spokes of the Mini-Lite wheels. The interior is race-car basic with a Sun tachometer, Grant steering wheel, Hurst shifter, custom roll cage and competition shoulder harnesses. Driven only 211 miles since its completion, the Boss 302 has earned a number of accolades, including a MCACN Day 2 (period correct) award, MCA Red Grille Medallion and MCA Pinnacle Award for Modified. Included with the car is a Deluxe Marti Report and a binder containing build specs and restoration photos.
F163 1934 Ford Pickup 18-729711 $70,000.00 $85,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Kandy Apple Red over Ivory. At the depths of the Great Depression, buying a new pickup truck was not always easy, but people knew Ford was synonymous with quality construction. This Street Rodded 1934 version is likewise, created around a package that includes all-steel doors, bed, hood and grille. Dave’s Garage in Simi Valley, California, is the shop that carried out this professional nut-and-bolt retrofitting, combining upgraded paint, driveline changes and body components into a complementary blend of style and power. Beneath the hood here is a Picks Racing 383 CI stroker V-8 engine built by Picks Racing Engines of Santa Ana, California. Polished accessories, an oval air cleaner, stainless-steel headers and braided-style lines give it excellent appearance, with a TH350 automatic transmission behind and a true Lincoln Zephyr 8.5-inch rear end with 2.74 gears out back. Showing a racked body, underneath this truck are a Heidts show-quality Super Ride independent front suspension, Heidts chrome coilover shocks, 4-wheel disc brakes and a 15-gallon fuel cell. The exterior is covered in House of Kolor Kandy Apple Red with a custom-built five-window design cab and fenders created in fiberglass, chromed bumpers and dual outside mirrors. Inside is a wonderful ivory and beige interior with beautiful brightwork changes. This includes the gold-plated VDO gauges and dash insert, a gold-plated 20-inch Lokar floor shifter, gold-plated emergency-brake handle and gold-plated pedals, air-conditioning vents and hardware. Comfort comes from a Vintage Air outfit, the tilt steering column and an Alpine stereo system that is both Bluetooth and Sirius XM surround-sound capable. The car rides on 18- and 20-inch 10-spoke Ridler wheels with a conventional blackwall tire design. The bed has wooden slats, and dual exhaust exits through chrome tips under the back bumper. While we doubt you would use this machine to bring in the season’s harvest, this trick five-window Ford truck is ready for any situation where “cool” is important.
F164 1965 Bentley S3 Saloon B116GJ $55,000.00 $65,000.00 N/R $30,800 €26,600 -44% Black and Cream over Black leather. RHD. The Bentley S-series was introduced in 1955, and a decade later this 1965 Bentley S3 was among the last of the series handcrafted into elegance by the skilled craftsman at the Crewe facility in Cheshire, England, before the coach-built body-on-frame era came to a close with the introduction of the unibody T-series. Long-term storage in a climate-controlled building went far to help preserve Bentley originality from the wood-trimmed cream leather interior out to the sleek two-tone black and cream body. Factory constructed in right-hand-drive configuration, the S3 is one of just 1,285 saloons constructed over the course of production. The 6.2L light alloy-aluminum block and head V-8 engine was factory-equipped with dual SU carburetors and hydraulic lifters for an estimated 200-plus HP. A standard 4-speed automatic transmission delivers propulsion through a hypoid-drive rear axle and rear wheels with great dispatch, and the S3 is capable of a 115 MPH top speed. Power-assist steering works with unequal-length wishbone front suspension and anti-roll torsion bar for superior road control and expected ride. Hydraulic servo-assist brakes help slow the Bentley from speed with confident authority. The S3 differentiated itself from its predecessors with a side-by-side quad-headlamp configuration and a lower-mounted radiator and grille that lent a rakish downward slope to the long hood. Proof of lasting build quality is apparent in the well-appointed cream leather interior with individually adjustable split-bench seating and original burled-wood trim throughout. A 3-spoke steering wheel with column-mounted gearshift selector sits over the wood dash with full instrumentation, factory-issue radio and heater controls. Chrome-spoke wheels and whitewall tires finish off the exterior. One drive—or ride in regal splendor—is all it takes to understand the handcrafted luxury of one of the last coach-built Bentleys.
F165 1966 Ford Mustang GT Fastback 6R09A106151 $50,000.00 $60,000.00 $52,250 €45,125 Mid Red over Black. A factory A-code Mustang that came from the San Jose, California, assembly plant with the coveted GT Equipment Group, this 1966 fastback has been restored inside and out to look like a Shelby GT350. Built September 10, 1965, the fastback is now powered by a 302 CI V-8 engine that generates 320 HP thanks to a mild cam, aluminum intake and Holley 650 CFM 4-barrel carburetor, with muscular sound provided by an aftermarket MagnaFlow dual exhaust. An aluminum radiator keeps things cool while chrome valve covers and an Autolite air cleaner provide eye-candy under the hood. The power reaches the pavement through a 4-speed manual transmission and 8-inch rear end with 3.55 gearing. As a factory GT, the Mustang is equipped with disc brakes at the front and drums at the rear. Other than the small cloisonné emblems on the front fenders, the GT exterior visuals have been replaced by Shelby components, including a hood with scoop, 1966-correct rear-quarter windows, side scoops and gas cap, with gold GT-350 rocker-panel stripes contrasting nicely with the beautiful red exterior paint. A horizontal-bar billet grille adds to the all-business Shelby look. The fastback rides on chrome styled steel wheels with dual redline tires. Inside, the black interior comes with a Shelby steering wheel, upgraded radio, fold-down rear seat and Ford clock and tachometer. Wiring has been upgraded throughout. Built in fewer numbers than hardtops and convertibles, the 1965-66 fastbacks are the most popular for today’s collectors. This 1966 fastback is a factory GT with the appearance and stance of the always-popular Shelby GT350. Small 289 emblems are a subtle way of hiding the fact that the Mustang is now powered by a modified 302 CI V-8 that is ready to deliver many miles of smiles.
F166 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod VC56S083348 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 $99,000 €85,500 Mid Crocus Yellow and Laurel Green over Cream. Tri-Five Chevrolets—those built in the years spanning 1955 to 1957—remain some of the most popular American cars ever produced. Their appeal reliably spreads through each new generation, especially in the context of Resto Modding, a point borne out in this mouth-watering 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air two-door post sedan. A frame-off build completed in 2017, its visuals open with beautiful two-tone Crocus Yellow and Laurel Green paint applied by CS Restoration in San Jose, California. Finished with the complement of stock brightwork, chrome and tinted glass, the whole affair rides low over wide Nitto Extreme ZR tires on polished 18-inch Schott aluminum wheels. The smoothed engine compartment is home to a polished, fuel-injected Street Performance LS2 engine fortified with a Magnuson supercharger and fitted with a K&N air filter, custom aluminum coil covers and Brite Hot ceramachrome headers feeding 2.5-inch stainless exhaust complete with X-pipe and Magnaflow mufflers. A Mattson aluminum radiator maintains operating temperatures, and a 4L65E automatic transmission and Ford 9-inch rear end with 3.70 gears and Detroit Locker complete the muscular drivetrain. The stock frame was powder coated and carefully detailed, and then fitted with a Borgeson 605 power steering box, JRI coilover shocks and Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes for optimum handling. The inimitable Sid Chavers worked his magic in the Bel Air’s interior, fitting plush leather upholstery over the doors, interior panels and Glide front and rear seats. A custom-fitted headliner and hand-finished carpets complete the basics of the interior makeover. A new custom wiring harness (extant with on-board maintenance charger and external jump posts) was installed to meet the demand of such upgrades as power windows by Nu-Relics, Vintage Air conditioning and a custom-built Classic Instruments gauge assembly. Although further personalized with billet trim and controls, there is still a strong ’56 vibe at work inside. New in every detail and completed to show-winning standards, this Bel Air Resto Mod will deliver the ultimate cruising experience.
F167 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III BJ8 Roadster JBL41516 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A British Racing Green over Black. Produced in the final year of the 3000 model’s eight-year run that began in 1959, this 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII BJ8 presents in wonderful overall condition. The sports-car segment of the British automobile industry boomed after World War II as makers built cars to appeal to the cash-rich American enthusiasts. Donald Healey was at the forefront of that trend, introducing his first lightweight roadster, the hastily named Austin-Healey 100/4, at the 1952 London Motor Show under the British Motor Corporation flag. In 1959, BMC introduced the Austin-Healey 3000, which quickly became a racing and commercial success. In 1961, the 3000 Mark II followed in two-seat BT7 configuration with triple SU carburetors; the 2+2 BJ7 came in January 1962 with twin SU carburetors to facilitate easier tuning. Introduced in February 1964, the 3000 Mark III BJ8 was the final development of the 3000 line and the most refined. Engine development had boosted power from 124 HP to 130 HP in the Mark II; in the Mark III, that leaped to 150 HP with a commensurate boost in torque. The most luxurious of the Austin-Healeys, the 3000 featured a well-appointed, comfortable cockpit with burled-wood accents, the curved windscreen introduced on the B7 model and roll-up side windows, all features of this well-cared-for 1967 Mk III BJ8 Roadster. Powered by the torquey 3.0L/150 HP inline-6 with a smooth-shifting 4-speed manual transmission and electronically controlled overdrive, it remains highly original with the exception of a single repaint in the original British Racing Green. It retains the excellent original interior including the polished wood accents, and features excellent chrome inside and out, including the signature wire wheels. Mechanically upgraded with new tie rods and front bushings, it has received a front-end alignment and rebuilt carburetors, and it’s ready to deliver the spirited driving for which these cars are rightly famous.
F168 1957 Chevrolet 150 A57B128286 $65,000.00 $80,000.00 $55,000 €47,500 -15% Red over Red and Black. A professional concours-quality nut-and-bolt restoration was recently completed on this multiple award-winning 1957 Chevrolet 150 two-door sedan. The 150 was the sleeper of the Chevrolet lineup, devoid of the Bel Air’s many visual attractions while still offering all of the same engine and driveline choices available in the top-of-the-line model. In this case, power comes via the optional dual 4-barrel-equipped 283/245 HP V-8 mated to a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission. Nobly residing in the car’s immaculate engine compartment, it features dual exhaust and the factory-original “Bat Wing” air cleaner. Features such as the new Delco Tar Top battery, correct plating finishes and wiring, labels and a period-style radiator bug screen are notable underhood details. Beautifully finished in the attractive combination of Matador Red and India Ivory, this 150 boasts excellent body prep and paint and shows outstanding panel fit and finish, properties that extend to the highly detailed undercarriage. Accessorized with front and rear bumper guards, front bumper rubber tips and backup lights, the car rides on new standard-equipment 6.70-14 Firestone tires with 2.5-inch whitewalls on red-painted steel wheels fitted with dog-dish hubcaps. Like the paint, the glass, chrome and brightwork are new and in exceptional condition. The interior is a genuine pleasure to take in, exhibiting more excellent paint and chrome, factory-correct new red upholstery with contrasting fabric inserts, a new headliner and new carpets. Interior optional accessories include a dash-mounted traffic light viewer, manual-tune AM radio, below-dash tissue dispenser, an in-dash clock and a serendipitous surprise in the form of an included Norelco Sportsman electric shaver. The attention to detail is also evident in the trunk, which holds the correct spare, jack and trunk mat. Impeccably finished to the highest standards, this 1957 Chevrolet 150 won 2nd in Class in the Post War category at the 2017 Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance and an Award of Merit in the same category at the 2017 Ironstone Concours.
F170 1977 Ford Bronco U15GLX85462 $65,000.00 $75,000.00 $71,500 €61,750 Mid Brown over Black. Ford created an American off-road archetype when it launched the 4-wheel-drive Bronco in 1966. Ten years and countless off-road adventures later, this 1977 Ford Bronco was among the last of the first generation to roll off the assembly line. This Bronco underwent a recent restoration that brought its original sport-utility style and off-road capability together with time-proven upgrades, resulting in a sport-utility vehicle ready for the modern world. The restored and modified representative of Bronco heritage is offered with a Marti Report to document its origin. A correct Ford 302 CI V-8 engine was rebuilt and mated to a new automatic transmission. Dual fuel tanks feed the Edelbrock 4-barrel, and an aluminum radiator makes for cool running. Ceramic-coated tube headers and dual exhaust flow performance and sound. Power steering and power disc brakes help modulate Baja 500-winning 4-wheel-drive that features a Dana 44 front axle with front locking hubs and skid plates for added protection against boulders. The heavy-duty flat-steel front bumper is outfitted with a 9,500-pound winch to get the Bronco or lesser 4x4s out of trouble, and the rear bumper is equipped with a swing-out spare. The instantly recognizable Bronco body was fitted with new glass throughout and finished into two-tone Copper Metallic accented with white stripes to match the removable top. Safety and durability meet in the interior with an Alcantara headliner, body-color roll bar and new reproduction black vinyl seats and door panels. Tilt steering, a lockable center security console and Vintage Air climate control add a measure of modern comfort and convenience, while high-intensity LED headlamps light the way and uncut fenders packed with Indy-style wheels wrapped in 31-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires keep it moving forward in the toughest of off-road driving conditions. This is one Bronco that is ready for adventure.
F171 1972 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster 1S73390 $75,000.00 $90,000.00 $77,000 €66,500 Mid Regency Red over Black leather. This highly awarded 1972 Jaguar E-Type Series III 2+2 Coupe is the product of a meticulous restoration in its eye-catching original color combination of Regency Red over black. Famed concours winner and marque specialist RX Autoworks completed a bare-metal respray and body assembly in 2009, and the result is simply stunning. Evidence of the efficacy of the restoration is borne out by E-Type’s stratospheric average of three JCNA judging scores at 99.85 points. This fabulous machine also picked up awards as the “Best Debuting Restoration” at the 2009 All British Field Meet, the “Best E-Type” overall at the E-Type 50th Anniversary Concours at Jaguars on the Island 2011, and “Best E-Type” at the Van Dusen Gardens Luxury and Supercar Weekend 2011. The Series III was birthed at the beginning of the 1971 model year when Jaguar introduced this new and long-awaited E-Type fitted with the same V-12 engine that powered the company’s sedans. Easily identifiable by its longer wheelbase, flared fenders and a front-end featuring a larger grille to improve engine cooling and open headlights, the new E-Type inherited the handling prowess of its predecessors, while reaping the benefit of the V-12’s extra torque and its near turbine-like smoothness. Featuring a 4-speed manual transmission, wire wheels, air conditioning, power antenna and original Becker radio, this E-Type possesses what might be called a correct option list. Topping off the interior niceties is the newer MotoLita steering wheel, but the original is also included in this sale. Documentation for this car is extensive with the previous titles, service records, brochures, tools, detailed description of restoration and JCNA Score Sheets compiled in a single binder. Registering a mere 1,800 miles since the restoration for a total mileage of 58,534 miles, this E-Type comes with books, tools, jack and service manuals, advertising materials, numerous awards, trophies and a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate.
F172 1948 Lincoln Continental Club Coupe 8H181029 $50,000.00 $65,000.00 $24,750 €21,375 -50% Jet Black over Red. If perhaps the Lincoln Continental from the year 1948 is not something you are familiar with, do not be surprised. Cars such as the one offered here were never commonplace, even in the enclaves where the well-to-do gathered. This was the very final year for the first-generation design on this luxury name, which had first been introduced in late 1939, following the creation of a customized example built exclusively for Edsel Ford himself. After this year’s release, the nameplate would subsequently disappear until the latter half of the 1950s, leaving its origins of exclusivity intact for future owners. Indeed, with a base price of $4,662, a mere 1,650 Club Coupes were produced in 1948, and this car has had a recent, no-expense-spared refreshing to OEM condition. Under the hood is the legendary 292 CI V-12 Lincoln engine, perfect for smooth and dynamic acceleration in this body style, coupled to the factory 3-speed transmission with overdrive. The stunning body lines have earned this model a “Full Classic” designation by the CCCA, and in this instance the car features dual chrome mirrors, bumper guards, pushbutton door openers and exclusive lettering and trim. The continental rear wheel kit—among the European-type accessories that were the origins of the vehicle’s name—complements the jet-black paint and helps complete the look of elegance. Upon entry, one is stunned by the plush red interior components, and this automobile is appointed with power windows, deluxe radio and clock, instrument panel and fluted accents, all which help make this a premium example of early postwar automotive beauty. Rounding out the appearance are wide whitewall tires and full-size wheel covers, a fitting complement to this vehicle. That year, advertising for this model was unpretentious, showing only the car with the scripted words “Nothing Could Be Finer…” That adage remains true with this Club Coupe, certain to be appreciated by whomever becomes its next caretaker.
F173 1948 Packard Series 22 Woody 22932008 $50,000.00 $75,000.00 $52,250 €45,125 Mid Green over Tan and Plaid. The product of a period-correct frame-off refreshing, including the interior with its fold-down secondary seat for additional storage capability, this 1948 Packard Series 22 took a Best in Class at the Hilton Head Concours in 2016 soon after its completion. The return to peacetime following the hostilities of World War II created a special mix of old and new ideas when it came to automobile design and manufacturing. For Packard, one of the longest-lived luxury names in independent automobile manufacturing, the result were cars like this beautifully appointed Series 22 wood-sided station sedan. This desirable model featured a primary substructure of steel components with fine-grained hardwood used for the paneling on the exterior and stainless “no mar” trim installed on the wood cargo area inside. Marketed as the successor to the “station wagon,” this extended-roof sedan used the legendary 288 CI Packard Eight, an inline-8 design rated at 130 HP and equipped with a downdraft carburetor and 3-speed manual transmission that has both overdrive and vacuum-assist shifting. The interior was classically appointed by the company, with plaid inserts on the bench seats, a wood-grain dash, tinted glass and a radio with antenna. The outside of this car harkens to the conservative design characteristics of that era, painted in a bright green with a reduced-profile grille opening and substantial rib-stamped front and rear bumpers complete with bumper guards. The body lines following rearward in an Art Deco-inspired appearance and the use of fender skirts, full-size wheel covers and wide whitewall tires defines the era of its creation. Packard as a brand had begun in 1899, and it outsold Cadillac in those early postwar years; but fate soon proved unkind and the company would disappear during the following decade. For many years, the slogan was simply “Ask the man who owns one.” This wonderfully refinished, perhaps even whimsical, postwar wood-sided station sedan from the storied marque could well make you the one with the answer.
F174 1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe Woody Wagon P12484389 $50,000.00 $75,000.00 $63,250 €54,625 Mid Bright Maroon over Tan. Woody wagons have always held a special appeal in the car hobby. On the verge of World War II, Plymouth released this example, which was one of 5,594 produced in 1941, and only a small percentage of them survive today. The example here is stunning in both condition and appearance, exuding originality in many areas. The company had used the 1940 new car brochure to tout Plymouth’s budget-oriented “luxury ride” quality overall and the engine, driveline and suspension technological innovations found on these cars, which carried over to the 1941 release. Under the hood, this classic retains the 201 CI inline 6-cylinder L-head engine, whose 6.7:1 compression was the highest in the low-priced vehicle field. This engine has a Carter downdraft carburetor and the 6-volt electrical system. It is backed by a column-shifted 3-speed blocker-ring manual transmission featuring helically cut gears, both recent innovations as well, plus Plymouth’s new True-Steady steering design. The suspension consists of independent front coil springs and semi-elliptic rear leaf springs. The interior is done in a tan material with third-row bench seating, a fluted Art Moderne dash design, red steering wheel with half-crescent chrome horn ring, and a white dash panel. The wood theme continues on the inner door panels as well. The outside evokes the late prewar feel, with the curving sheet-metal nose in a bright Maroon and the styling cues like the tri-craft Mayflower hood mascot, unique headlamp bezels, classic 1941 grille and hood chrome accents, and beautiful woodwork throughout. The car rides on painted steel wheels featuring chrome hubcaps and trim rings shod in wide whitewall tires for an appearance of class.
F176 2004 Porsche 911/996 GT3 WP0AC29914S692899 $95,000.00 $125,000.00 $93,500 €80,750 -2% Guards Red over Black leather. Porsche saved its best for last when the 911 GT3 finally drove onto American roads in 2004 to put a cap on the Type 996 era. The Porsche GT3 earned its name from FIA Group GT3 competition and is infused with race-proven engineering and aerodynamics for a pure sports Porsche experience in the tradition of the RS America and original 1973 Carrera RS. This pivotal 911 in the Porsche timeline has traveled just 11,975 original miles since it left Stuttgart and comes with its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The naturally aspirated 3.6L flat 6-cylinder engine is rated for 380 HP at 7,400 RPM and 284 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 RPM. Engine No. 63424419 sends its power through a 6-speed manual transmission, bearing No. 2004983, and a limited-slip differential. Special pistons, valves and titanium connecting rods reduce rotating mass for quicker throttle response toward the 8,200 RPM redline. The GT3 could launch from 0-60 MPH in 4.5 seconds, run the quarter mile in 12 seconds at 118 MPH and hold slightly more than 1 g on the skidpad. Drilled and vented rotors with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear body-color red calipers can slow the GT3 from 60 MPH in less than 100 feet. ABS is the sole GT3 electronic traction assist. Original Guards Red paint is fitting for the just more than 3,000-pound 911 with chin spoiler, under-car panels and rear wing designed for maximum downforce, minimal lift and low drag. Lightness was achieved by eliminating sound-deadening material, rear seating and the sunroof. The custom-tailored black leather interior is appointed with power-adjustable sport seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, shifter and console. Aluminum accents the climate-controlled cabin from instrumentation to the GT3-logo door sills. Xenon headlamps illuminate the road for 19-inch alloy wheels with GT3 center caps and Michelin Pilot Sport tires. Even in today’s high-performance era, this GT3 has the performance chops to thrill.
F177 1947 Ford Super Deluxe Woody 799A132566 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black and Wood over Tan. It’s been alleged that Henry Ford said something to the effect of, “You can have it any color, as long as it’s black.” This 1947 Ford Super Deluxe Woody follows that quote well with deep, reflective black paint contrasted by remarkable woodwork and brightwork inside and out. Having undergone a mechanical and cosmetic restoration, the Woody emerged with a new maple wood kit by Cincinnati Woodwork, which was done by Accurate Woodwork. A cloth top was installed using the same material found on Cadillac Landaus. New glass, a new hood and fenders were installed along with a new chassis to accommodate the power disc brakes, front and rear coilover shocks, and the new, modified 350 CI V-8 engine with 3-speed automatic transmission. The Woody also benefits from new wiring. Inside, a leather interior by Wanda’s Auto Upholstery of San Bernardino, California, was custom produced lending a modern look and feel with an effortless nod to the original days. Vintage Air, new carpeting and an upgraded stereo are just a few things passengers will revel about this Woody, but the dashboard seems to be the crown jewel of this car. Rolling on blackwall tires with chrome wheels and smoothie caps, this Woody is obviously very much about getting down to business yet hasn’t forgotten the whimsical side from which it came. It would be right at home at a Hot Rod cruise-in or at the beach with a surfboard or two protruding from the back end. Ford Motor Company made huge efforts to produce its wood-bodied vehicles, actually buying a mountain on which it grew the maple and ash trees to supply the wood, as well as building the bodies by hand in-house to excruciatingly high standards. So well made, they easily matched the quality and construction of higher-priced marques, making the Ford Woody the gold standard of the genre. Although, truth be told, the Ford Woody Wagons were often the most expensive vehicle in the Ford lineup, sometimes closing in on $1,300, and as such, while they cost less than the higher-end competition, they did command a premium all their own.
F178 1968 Porsche 912 Coupe 12803543 $65,000.00 $80,000.00 N/R $38,500 €33,250 -41% White over Black. First introduced in 1965 as the lesser priced alternative to the more expensive 911, the Porsche 912 was powered by a 1600cc flat-4 engine that carried over from the outgoing 356SC. While it didn’t have the same grunt as the 911’s new 2.0L flat-6 engine, both models shared the same unitized body platform, front suspension and rear suspension—all of which conspired to make the 912 a relative bargain. Furthermore, the brakes were also equal in swept area, with the exception of solid rotors on the 912 versus vented on the 911. Faced with a significant price difference between the two, many period buyers opted for the 912 based on some very compelling reasons. First, it was lighter than the 911 by a whopping 238 pounds—a full 178 pounds of weight savings came from the flat-4 engine—and the 912 tended to handle best due to its optimal weight distribution. The venerable 4-cylinder engine also had a long-standing and well-deserved reputation for its reliability, durability and performance. These performance factors combined with the lower price made the 912 a rousing sales success, selling twice as many units as the 911. This 1968 Porsche 912 is factory optioned with a 5-speed manual transmission a 5-gauge VDO instrument cluster, chrome wheels and chrome hubcaps with the Porsche cloisonné crest. Though currently equipped with an Audiovox cassette stereo, the original Blaupunkt radio is included. Wearing its correct Ivory White paint, this 912 conveys the iconic Porsche look of the late 1960s that helped build the legend of the brand. The black leatherette interior is a classic for the period, with features including a 4-spoke steering wheel with the butterfly horn ring and aluminum applique on the dashboard. This restored example is believed to have traveled a mere 11,993 miles since new. The 912 comes armed with its original tool kit, factory books, owner’s manual and that great, classic Porsche body shape that won’t soon be forgotten.
F179 1986 Porsche 930 Turbo WP0JB0936GS050895 $90,000.00 $120,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Orange Jagermeister race livery. This brilliant orange 1986 Porsche 930 Turbo honors the iconic Porsche 934—a machine that was the scourge of Group 4 racing during its era—and pays homage to the car that swept the first in-class victory at the 1976 Nürburgring 1,000 KM race with drivers Derek Bell and Günter Stecknig. Originally prepared by the German race team of Porsche Car Dealer Max Moritz and sponsored by the spirits distiller Jägermeister—producers of a world-famous herbal bitter liqueur drink—a two-car team of sister 934s was successfully campaigned in the 1976 season. In appearance, the featured Porsche 930 looks nearly identical to the original with the correct Jägermeister livery, BBS deep-offset center-lock-look wheels, Goodyear racing tires, correct whale-tail spoiler, properly placed twin racing mirrors, correct fiberglass wheel-arch flares, center-placed single exhaust pipe, wastegate pop-off valve exit pipe and competition intercooler. The front air dam with its chin spoiler reveals large openings for the central oil cooler, two air inter-coolers and brake-ventilation ducting. The interior remains faithful to its motorsports-based heritage with a roll cage, competition bucket seats, leather steering wheel and Autoflug harnesses. The Porsche 934 was built to comply with the FIA – Appendix J-Group 4 regulations that were designed to keep the competition machines closely aligned with their street-legal counterparts. These machines were mandated to weigh in at a minimum of 2,470 pounds, which just happens to be close to the original curb weight of 2,635 pounds for the stock 930 Turbo. Due to the limited amount of weight reduction allowed, the 934 race cars still retained their electric window lifts, full dashboard and full door cards. This 934 replica shows 120,100 miles on the odometer and has experienced only 37,100 miles on the Mezger based 930 Turbo engine that was rebuilt in 2013.
F180 1931 Hudson Sedan Streetrod CA974333 $80,000.00 $95,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Tan. As iconoclastic as Hot Rodders can be, few have ventured into the territory established by the builder of this 1931 Hudson Sedan. Established in 1909, the Hudson Motor Car Company quickly rose to prominence as one of the country’s biggest and most successful auto manufacturers, reaching its peak in third place behind Ford and Chevrolet in 1925. Hudson contributed many innovations to the industry, including dual brakes, dashboard-mounted oil-pressure and generator warning lights, the first balanced crankshaft and the placement of the steering wheel and driver controls to the left. The innovative Step-Down models introduced the advanced Twin-H Power inline-6 engine and dominated early NASCAR, all contributing to making the Hudson name a classic of American automotive history. It’s impossible to know, but Joseph L. Hudson—the successful Detroit department store entrepreneur who lent his name and capital to the company upon its founding—might have been delighted with this multiple award-winning Street Rod bearing his name. Featured in a 1996 issue of “Street Rodder” magazine, its monolithic engine was supplanted by a Chevrolet 427 CI big-block V-8 rebuilt by Bell & Gaines of Modesto, California. The new resident is built to perform, incorporating aluminum heads, a Weber 4-barrel carburetor on an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, MSD 6A ignition and Hedman headers feeding dual exhaust. A high-flow radiator and electric fan keep thermal output under control. The car’s brilliant red paint was laid down over straight coachwork, a striking contrast to the Hudson hardware and chrome accents, which include dual horns, grille-mounted stone guard, cowl lights, mirrors and Zenith wire wheels. Tan upholstery provides attractive accents inside and on the roof, rear luggage compartment and dual side-mount spares. Rakishly lowered over Kugel front suspension, this unique Hudson also features air conditioning, power steering and disc brakes, cruise control and a Kenwood CD stereo.
F181 1958 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible F1558H1731 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White and Blue over Silver and Blue. Preservation has been a hallmark of the car being offered here, an unrestored 19,449 original-mile 1958 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible. Just more than 3,000 of these cars were produced that year. Pontiac was rightly proud of the redesigned model line, which it titled “the boldest advance in fifty years,” and the Bonneville was the headlining design. Noted as a blending of sports-car action and town-car luxury, this vehicle was wonderfully appointed from its creation. Now its own model after a thrilling 1956-57 introduction, there were five top colors and four two-tone interior colors offered in the convertible line. Coupled to the vehicle’s redesigned look, fresh suspension and driveline advances, it proved popular enough that this model paced the 1958 Indianapolis 500. The example offered here features the “Tempest 395” 370/300 HP Tri-Power V-8 engine, whose trio of inline 2-barrel carburetors was Pontiac’s top induction system below the fuel-injection design. Behind this was an automatic transmission, and this deluxe model was further equipped with power steering and power brakes. A unique upgrade on this as-built car is the single driver’s-side spotlight. Outside, this beauty features white paint with light chrome accents to the sides and blue painted inserts. It features a black top and a silver and blue interior with a matched blue boot. Inside is blue two-tone leather upholstery in keeping with this model’s deluxe appointments. Options even include a power convertible top. This car is equipped with full-size spinner wheel covers and wide whitewall tires, completing the look of luxury of Pontiac’s top offering for 1958. Owned by collectors for many years, this 1958 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible is the type of car that could be placed on display in a museum or enjoyed with friends and family on the open road with the top down.
F182 1980 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser FJ40-919225 $60,000.00 $80,000.00 $33,000 €28,500 -45% White over Grey and Tan. A meticulous frame-off restoration was performed on this 1980 FJ-40, bringing it back to a condition that looks like new. During this project, it was outfitted with an updated Pertronix electronic ignition allowing more surefire starts and a 1986 Toyota Series 60 5-speed manual transmission allowing the engine one more gear to help it unwind a little bit and provide a higher level of efficiency. The new aluminum radiator will also help keep the engine cool in adverse climates. The tan DuPont chrome base/clear coat paint appears as the factory would have applied it, under the hood and inside the body offset by a black chassis and gray bumpers that match the steel wheels, lending an entirely period-correct look throughout. Aficionados will love the various off-road details like twin cans, a snorkel, rear-mounted spare tire and new Warn winch with an 8,000-pound 5/16ths steel rope. The tan canvas soft top matches the paint almost perfectly and lends it a fabulous ready-for-anything look that goes well with the overall theme of this FJ. Equipped with OEM Toyota power brakes, it stops surefootedly, and inside, passengers will love the new upholstery covering the original Toyota seats, Toyota FM/CD player, floor mats, and front and rear seat belts. The rear seats are unique ambulance-style, so occupants face forward as opposed to facing sideways. Adding to the ready-for-anything allure, this FJ is not equipped with a heater—by the looks of it, this one is set up for sand dunes over tundra. The Land Cruiser is Toyota’s longest-running model line, dating back to prototype development in 1950 to serve in the Korean War. This one easily captures all the attributes that put the Land Cruiser FJ-40 on the map and is the perfect vehicle for those without a map.
F183 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster UD1S23112 $60,000.00 $70,000.00 N/R $51,700 €44,650 -14% Yellow over Black leather. If a dual-overhead-camshaft inline 6-cylinder engine is good, then this unrestored two-owner Series III Jaguar E-type is twice as good. Wearing its factory yellow paint and original black leather interior, this English sport classic is equipped with a 5.2L V-12 engine. Race-inspired design, sophisticated monocoque construction, famously competent independent suspension and disc brakes converge with what was an amazing and significant sports car in the history of Jaguar. Engineered by combining two Jaguar 6-cylinder engines into a quad-camshaft 12-cylinder powerhouse, the 5.3L V-12 engine under the bonnet is fueled by four Zenith carburetors and factory rated for 241 net HP and 285 lb-ft of torque at 3,500 RPM. The V-12 engine is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission, and while the Series III may have added girth over its svelte predecessors, the Jaguar is comparatively light by contemporary standards at 3,400 pounds. With V-12 power under the long hood, the U.S.-market Series 3 E-type boasted 135 MPH top speed. The Jaguar wears its factory-prepared color combination, and lowering the original top sheds light onto the Coventry-issue black leather interior with perforated sport bucket seats around a center console over black carpet. The leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel sits on an adjustable steering column for a personalized view of Smiths instrumentation and the road ahead. Original-equipment AM/FM radio and air conditioning add a measure of entertainment and four-season cabin comfort. The V-12-powered E-type rides on genuine chrome knock-off wire wheels equipped with original size and tread-pattern reproduction Dunlop tires for traditional style and an authentic Jaguar driving experience. The E-Type is one of the few cars that truly deserves icon status—it’s Jaguar’s signature vehicle.
F184 2007 Aston Martin Vantage SCFBB03B17GC04117 $60,000.00 $80,000.00 $66,000 €57,000 Mid Blue over Sandstorm leather. Luxurious grand-touring heritage and competitive performance converge in this low-mileage example in the exclusive lineage of Aston Martin automobiles deemed worthy to carry the Vantage name. The garage-kept Vantage shows just 8,520 miles on its odometer and carries on the Vantage tradition from its Monaco Blue exterior and complementary Sandstorm interior to its highly detailed undercarriage. Aston Martin originally launched the V-8 Vantage in 1977 and constructed just 458 examples through 1990. The name resurfaced in 1993 and was bestowed to just 288 examples through 2000, until the Geneva Motor Show marked the return of the vaunted name in 2006. The hand-assembled 4.3L Aston Martin V-8 engine channels 380 HP and more than 300 lb-ft of torque from its front-mounted position through a 6-speed manual transmission in the rear-mounted transaxle for near perfect 49-percent front to 51-percent rear weight distribution. Tubi Italian-made aftermarket exhaust insures maximum flow and sound from quad overhead camshafts and 32 valves. The chassis is comprised of bonded magnesium alloys and composite materials that bring strength and rigidity without added weight of conventional manufacturing. The Vantage can launch from 0-60 MPH in less than 5-seconds and hit 175 MPH top speed. Traditional English craftsmanship and the finest materials come together in the hand-stitched and hand-assembled interior from the suede headliner to leather-wrapped steering wheel and six-way power-adjustable leather bucket seats. Aluminum controls for on-board navigation and glass pushbutton engine start are finished with jewel precision. The rear tailgate opens to provide stowage for extended road excursions with room for everything from luggage to golf bags. The Vantage stands ready to carve up road-race courses or coastal highways with equal aplomb on factory chrome-finish forged-alloy wheels and Bridgestone Potenza tires.
F185 1981 Porsche 928C Convertible WP0JA0928BS821277 $55,000.00 $75,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Guards Red over Beige leather and Black top. Today, Carelli International is a world-renowned product and technology development juggernaut, but few are aware of its beginnings as a Porsche service center founded by Southern California entrepreneur Vittorio G. Carelli. The new enterprise quickly prospered and soon became known as Carelli’s Porsche. By 1978, Carelli leveraged his considerable knowledge of Stuttgart’s products into a series of independent design projects that led to a full-scale automotive design facility in Costa Mesa, California. Carelli’s passion for all things Porsche led to close direct ties to Porsche AG and Porsche-Audi North America. This relationship resulted in the creation of the Carelli Design C928 Porsche Convertible in 1981. Carelli produced eight of these expertly re-engineered Porsches at a staggering cost of $313,000 each. The final example—No. 8—is presented here in splendid unrestored condition, looking much as it did in the early ‘80s with a mere 6,400 original miles registered on the odometer. There is no question that Carelli has a real passion for perfection, one that is readily evident in most every detail. The fold-down top’s concealed storage compartment might be a common feature today, but it proved to be a daring innovation at the time of its conception. Indeed, the entire process of transforming the production 928 from hatchback coupe to sleek convertible required extensive re-engineering, and the results remain a testament to Carelli’s insistence on excellence. This Guards Red Carelli C928 features Porsche’s excellent 4.5L/235 HP overhead-cam V-8 mated to a 3-speed automatic transmission. The interior saw a number of upgrades above and beyond the base 928, with Connolly leather and wool carpets enriching the interior niceties as part of its transformation. Garage-kept under a soft car cover, this fascinating C928 Convertible is offered with a documented comprehensive owner history and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
F186 2001 Porsche 911/996 Turbo WP0AB29991S687948 $50,000.00 $75,000.00 $60,500 €52,250 Mid Black over Black leather. The Turbo has always been the most coveted and most expensive 911 model offered in the Porsche lineup. When first introduced in 2001, this fourth-generation Turbo offered intoxicating performance with 415 HP and a factory-rated top speed of 189 MPH. The 2001 911 Turbo featured here has been treated to a massive dosage of power increase that has elevated the output to a blistering 550 HP. This has been accomplished though the installation of a RUF Powerkit RTurbo upgrade performed at RAC Performance in Carrollton, Texas. RUF—the famous manufacturer and tuner of Porsche cars based in Pfaffenhausen, Germany—supplies an integrated system consisting of two new turbochargers, new sports air filter, special DME engine-management programming, modified exhaust system with special catalytic converters and a revised intake pipe that dramatically increases performance while still maintaining emission compliance. Despite this quantum leap in power, the modifications do not adversely affect drivability, allowing the car to perform in a civilized manner when the situation demands. This 2001 Turbo is factory equipped with the Tiptronic automatic transmission, navigation system, Bose/Burmester Hi-Fi audio system, rear parking assist, front power heated seats and stainless-steel door panels with Porsche insignia and aluminum instrument dials with brush chrome inner rings. Presented in the monochromatic color combination of black with a matching black interior, this Turbo is fitted with the factory-correct silver-gray alloy wheels with red brake calipers. This car has been routinely maintained in accordance with factory-specified intervals throughout its life and comes with a documented service history. It shows only 55,589 original miles and presents in the condition commensurate with a car that has averaged less than 3,500 miles of driving per year. The car was last serviced by a California Porsche Dealership at 54,860 miles.
F187 1941 Ford Sedan Delivery 18-6739936 $75,000.00 $90,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Maroon over Tan. Of the various body styles that emerged from Detroit in the 1930s, the sedan delivery was perhaps one of the most practical. Stylish but possessing a large amount of enclosed storage space, vehicles like the 1941 Ford Deluxe here were the workhorses of small business when new and the desire of Street Rodders who wanted something different as that hobby exploded a decade later. The example here was built in the final full year of Ford production before industry turned to the war effort, and its design emphasizes the modernization of the overall 1941 Ford model line. For that year, Fords grew to a 114-inch wheelbase with redesigned exterior and interior lines. This car has benefitted from a frame-off restoration and has tallied just 20 test miles since that effort was finished. Beneath its trademark hood styling is a flathead 239 CI Ford V-8 engine that is retrofitted with three 2-barrel carburetors, polished aluminum heads and a polished intake. This engine also now has a Mercury crankshaft. It is backed by a 3-speed manual transmission. The body itself features the Deluxe-style exterior appointments, accented in Art Deco trim, and is beautifully refinished in burgundy red. Inside, this car has been equipped with leather seats and metal dash refinishing in simulated wood grain, otherwise retaining much of its OEM layout and accessories. There is black walnut flooring in the rear area, and the car has an updated 12-volt electrical system and new wide whitewall tires. However, there is one other point worth noting; this ’41 Ford Sedan Delivery was owned and maintained by a single owner from new until 2003. We noted the utilitarian nature of these special cars, and as such, following decades of service, not many have survived to the present day. Examples such as this one that benefit from a quality restoration and more than 60 years of long-term single-family ownership add to the car’s exclusivity and significance.
F188 1986 Ferrari 328GTS 60347 $65,000.00 $85,000.00 $60,500 €52,250 -7% Rosso Corsa over Crema leather. Driven just 35,000 miles over the course of its 32 years, this 1986 Ferrari 328 GTS shows all the strengths of this evolutionary model. Introduced in 1975 and produced through 1985, Ferrari’s 308 in both Berlinetta and Spyder form was a hard act to follow, but its successor, the 328, proved worthy to fans of the mid-engined V-8 Ferrari platform, especially the American buyers who constituted the core of Ferrari’s customer base. The 328 GTB appeared in late 1985 with an increase in displacement resulting from a 2mm bore increase and a 2.8mm-longer stroke for a displacement of 3185cc. The 328 followed the 308 Quattrovalvole model’s engine in using four valves per cylinder, but the 308’s Digiplex ignition was replaced in the 328 with the more flexible Magneti Marelli Multiplex system. As a result, horsepower increased to a more satisfying 260 HP at 7,000 RPM and 213 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 RPM, both considerable increases over the relatively underpowered 308. The increase in power made this already impressive engine even more flexible, making it perfectly suited to the low-end torque demands of everyday driving. While the 328’s overall chassis and body specifications remained virtually identical to those of the 308, the wheelbase was slightly increased by 0.4 inches to 92.5 inches, and there were a number of noticeable detail revisions that included a new front grille, the addition of a lower grille in the rear and new, better integrated body-color bumpers. Although the 328’s curb weight exceeded the 308’s by some 350 pounds, its more powerful engine launched it to 60 MPH in 6 seconds and a top speed of 150 MPH, both noticeable improvements in performance. Complementing this 1986 328 GTS’ beautiful Rosso Corsa paint is a snappy beige interior boasting supple leather and well-placed gauges and controls that include the classic gated shifter for the 5-speed manual transmission. A U.S.-market example, this 328 GTS offers air conditioning, a Clarion radio, tool kit, manuals, jack and spare.
F189 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Restomod 136370R248655 $75,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Dark Grey Hammered Tow over Black The redesign of the popular Chevrolet Chevelle for 1970 was heralded widely in the automotive media of the day, but those OEM accolades were nothing compared to the car offered here. A Pro Touring professional rebuild at an estimated cost of $169,000, this classic muscle car features numerous upgrades throughout. Ahead of the smoothed firewall is a new LS3 engine balanced and blueprinted by BPE and equipped with a mild cam. The use of a dress-up kit makes the engine look vintage thanks to classic Chevrolet valve covers, but the engine features drive-by-wire acceleration, a cold-air intake, and a 4-core aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, backed by a 4L80E automatic. The stealth-like exterior is done in a two-tone color scheme featuring hand-painted striping, with blacked-out chrome leaving the front and rear bumpers with subtle sheen and contrast. Detailing includes painted inner fenders and undercarriage, new glass, fresh weather stripping and window channel fuzzies, and LED lights. The beauty is more than surface-deep, as this car rides on a new powder-coated Art Morrison GT Sport chassis, with a rack-and-pinion steering layout, fresh polyurethane bushings, new upper and lower control arms, and a new crossmember. Out back is an independent rear suspension with subframe and suspension links detailed in a Dark Gray Hammered Toe color. The Wilwood large brake kit features a 6-piston front and 4-piston rear with Power Hydro boost. Minitubs were installed to allow wider rear tires, and the car rides on Rushforth 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels wearing Pirelli tires. The detailed interior includes black leather-accented upholstery, front and rear buckets, transmission and exhaust function control panel, and Vintage Air. Featuring a new fuel tank and rumbling through Hooker Max Flow mufflers and resonators, just more than 2,000 miles have been driven in this vehicle since it was completed in late 2016. The sale includes receipts and a USB card to accompany this exceptional rebuild of a true Chevrolet classic.
F190 1948 Cadillac Custom Club Coupe 486252595 $60,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Metallic Silver over Silver. If there was ever a definitive version of the Hot Rod Cadillac, this spectacular 1948 version is it. Built in 1990 by the late Boyd Coddington, this two-door club coupe exudes the Cadillac ideal of elegance with the level of execution and attention to detail that helped establish the Coddington name. Starting in this model year, the P-38 fighter-plane-inspired tail fins and body lines that were designed by Franklin Hershey, working with GM stylist Harley Earl, helped establish the postwar legacy of the Cadillac brand. The split windshield remained, but the cab design and pinched rear treatment were further refinements. Even in custom form, these same appointments remain prevalent, with the curvaceous Fisher Body panels covered in Metallic Silver with refreshed chrome accents, fender skirting and Series 61 side trim. As a result, the bumpers, wide-spaced grille and tail-lamp housings blend beautifully with the chosen exterior paint color, creating a sense of raw, refined metal. Centered on the hood and decklid are the Cadillac crest and V-shaped emblems. Underneath the expansive hood is a Chevrolet 350 CI engine with polished components, nicely detailed blue-toned accessories and easy-to-maintain cast exhaust manifolds. A Turbo-Hydro 400 automatic is also there, with a Griffin performance aluminum radiator keeping it cool and exhaust leaving through custom chrome tips under the rear bumper. Meanwhile, the inside features a unique interior blending of Art Deco-themed details with modern upgrades. For comfort and pleasure, this features things like air conditioning, the radio with its associated Pyle 1,000-watt audio system, an LED digital dash and power windows. Subtle touches abound here as well, with a custom console with floor shift and specialized door panels, all rendered in tones similar to the exterior of the machine. A set of Boyd Coddington signature “Harm” polished wheels and low-profile black rubber complete this tribute to both a great Cadillac model year and a great Rod builder.
F191 1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible P857H27707 $200,000.00 $240,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Ivory over Red. Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen felt he could sell an old man a young man’s car, but couldn’t sell a young man an old man’s car. When he took over as Pontiac general manager, he quickly reworked the late pre-production 1957 model. Its side trim and silver streaks went in the trash bin. In the middle of the year, the Custom Star Chief Bonneville Convertible blasted onto the scene. The first news of the $5,782 Bonneville was heard on December 2, 1956, and Pontiac General Sales Manager Frank V. Bridge later announced it in a January 11, 1957 letter. Released only one-to-a-dealer, Bonneville availability was limited to 630 production examples that model year. Pontiac’s engine was a 347 CI V-8 with a cast-iron block and overhead valves that had a 3.94×3.56-inch bore and stoke. The Bonneville induction system utilized a Rochester mechanical fuel-injection setup and had a 10.25:1 compression ratio. As noted in a “Motor Trend” test-drive article, Pontiac never released a factory horsepower rating for the Bonneville, but it was capable of an estimated 315 HP at 4,800 RPM. This rust-free Bonneville came out of Southern California and has its original body panels and trim. It features an ivory finish with red spears and a red and ivory leather-and-vinyl interior. Its factory options include power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seat, power antenna, Wonderbar radio with FM tuner, electric wipers, a retractable trunk light and a 3.64:1 Positraction axle. The car underwent a photo-documented rotisserie restoration in 2004, during which the engine and Hydra-Matic transmission were rebuilt, the chrome was re-plated, the stainless-steel trim was polished and new glass and wiring were installed. The car received a new Haartz cloth convertible top, a NOS trunk liner and a new brake system. The quality of the restoration and attention to detail is simply outstanding, and the end result earned this Bonneville the coveted Gold Award at the Glenmoor Gathering in Canton, Ohio, in 2004.
F192 1986 Toyota FJ45 Landcruiser FJ45-949791 $60,000.00 $80,000.00 $52,800 €45,600 -12% White over Blck. Restored from its long-wheelbase frame and pickup body out to correct Toyota decals, this 1986 FJ-45 Land Cruiser is among the last of its kind produced. The removable top and door-long wheelbase Land Cruiser pickup is rare for the U.S. market and waits for its next owner to experience its versatile combination of capability and durability that earned the Land Cruiser a spot in the globally recognized pantheon of all-terrain vehicles. The FJ-45, or “Troopy,” was manufactured in hardtop, wagon and pickup configurations before it was succeeded by the 70-series FJ-type in 1984. The 4.2L Toyota F-series inline 6-cylinder was rated for 135 HP and 200 lb-ft of torque and is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission with high- and low-range transfer case. Manual Aisin front locking hubs engage 4×4 capability. The famously durable engine is finished to a high level of original detail from its genuine OEM Toyota radiator and wire hose clamps out to correct air cleaner, ignition coil and valve cover decals. Fasteners, mounts, power disc-brake booster and power-steering reservoir shimmer with zinc chromate for authentic underhood appearance. The white and black pickup body features a fold-down front windshield for multiple configurations. The front bumper is equipped with tow hooks and rubber Toyota logo guards, and the coated bed is topped with a steel rear-window guard. Rear-corner windows and glass add visibility to the cab. New turn-signal and side-marker lenses and Land Cruiser badging lend the FJ-45 a showroom-fresh look. Vinyl bench seating and rubber carpet join underdash air conditioning and a Boss audio system for interior comfort and utility. The factory-issue aluminum transfer case instructional plate and reproduction decals turn back the clock for a classic FJ-45 experience.
F193 1957 Chevrolet Pickup 3A570120946 $70,000.00 $110,000.00 $68,200 €58,900 -3% Orange over Dark Saddle leather. Resplendent in a starburst of bright orange paint, this is a fresh 1957 Chevrolet Pickup that is far from farm duty. Indeed, this professional rotisserie nut-and-bolt execution by renowned Rod builder Steven Pope will satisfy your desire whether you like style or power, because both abound here. Faintly noted on the leading edge of the hood is a callout emblem stating 496. However, there will be no mistaking the sound coming from under this bonnet. Dyno tested at 782 HP, the 496 CI professionally built Merlin V-8 engine is topped with an 8-71 Weiand blower and dual Holley 4-barrel carburetors. Body-color Chevrolet valve covers, polished accessories and a smoothed firewall make the engine bay into a showcase, and the supercharger cleanly fits beneath the factory hood. Side exhaust trumpets are visible ahead of the rear wheel housings. Behind the engine is a freshened Turbo 400 automatic transmission with shift kit and a stoutly-designed 9-inch Ford rear end. Careful selection of parts resulted in a Pro-Touring level of undercarriage pieces, including a Camaro front suspension, 4-link and coilover shocks, power steering and disc brakes. A new fuel cell was relocated under the show-finished bed area, and the chromework is modest and very complementary to the color selection. Blended inside are excellent functional details, such as the polished tilt steering column, a custom gauge cluster in the smoothed dash, a Fesler steering wheel and power windows. Upholstery consists of custom Glide Engineering dark saddle-tone leather seating with matching dark saddle kick panels and headliner. Modern appointments include an ID touch keyless ignition and a security system with remote start. To complete the look, a set of 20-inch 5-spoke Coys wheels with narrow-profile tires seal the appearance. In 1957, these were America’s pickups, aptly associated with the legendary passenger-car line of that year. This example, showing forth both wonderful changes and street respectability upon close inspection, is ready for its next sunset cruise.
F199 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code E7FH395311 $75,000.00 $95,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over White andd Black. This “Baby Bird” in Black is a factory E-code example that has benefited from a restoration that incorporated original components and body panels and is purported to be one of the last two-seat Thunderbirds produced. It was completed in November 1957, and the final example rolled off of the assembly line on December 13, 1957. In the final year of the Baby Bird generation, Ford produced 21,380 Thunderbirds. Of those, only 1,499 were equipped with the vaunted E-code 312 CI V-8 engine. Topped with finned valve covers and dual Holley 4-barrel carburetors under a domed air cleaner, the potent solid-lifter mill was capable of delivering 270 HP and 355 lb-ft of torque, numbers comparable to the fuel-injected Corvettes of the same year. Spent gasses pass through dual exhaust with through-bumper exits. Power is transferred via the 3-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission to the rear axle, and power steering and brakes enhance maneuvering manners. Styling cues exclusive to the 1957 model such as pronounced tail fins, an enlarged front bumper with integrated parking lamps and an improved grille showcase the timeless aesthetics that still turn heads five decades later. The 1957 models also showcased equally important—though less visible—improvements, such as a 12-volt electrical system, improved engine cooling, stiffer crossmembers and revised spring rates. The two-tone black and white interior complements the black exterior finish and features a padded dash, power windows, tinted glass and a Town and Country radio. These cars are arguably best enjoyed sans top, but a color-matched black porthole hardtop and canvas soft top are present and accounted for and will be included in the sale. This particular E-code rolls on 14-inch wheels adorned with turbine-style wheel covers and wrapped in wide whitewall rubber, the rears partially concealed behind bright-lipped fender skirts. Today, the first-generation Thunderbird remains a readily identifiable archetype of ‘50s automotive Americana, and this dual-quad, late-production “Baby Bird” presents as an exceptional example.
F200 1959 Cadillac Coupe deville 59J042718 $55,000.00 $65,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Persian Sand Pink over Black and White. In 2018, this special-order Cadillac Coupe Deville emerged from a four-year restoration in its correct Persian Sand Pink with a luxurious black and white interior, a rebuilt 390/325 HP V-8 engine and rebuilt automatic transmission. Sumptuously appointed with air conditioning, power brakes, power steering, power vent windows, power locks, six-way power-operated Eldorado front seat, power trunk lock and cruise control, this Coupe Deville is ready to pamper. The dashboard matches the interior theme with black and white paint, chrome accents, the original radio and factory gauges all adding to the glamorous feel in their own way. In the glovebox resides a modern aftermarket radio, hidden from view but ready to bring some 21st-century tunes into the quiet-riding cabin. An adjustable air suspension with Firestone rear bags and trunk-mounted compressor provides a magnificent ride with exceptional control. It’s believed that this Cadillac has covered less than 1,000 miles since the completion of its restoration and is thought to have 55,000 original miles from new. The 1959 Cadillac brought bold new styling to the game, not only with the outrageously huge rear fins, but the more restrained use of bright trim work compared to years prior. Today, the 1959 Cadillac is largely one of the most iconic, easily recognized cars from the 1950s. Available in four body styles, there was something for everyone and prices ranged from nearly $5,000 to a stratospheric-for-the-time $13,000. For all intents and purposes, the higher-end priced Cadillacs were on par with the most expensive offerings from Rolls-Royce and Mercedes-Benz, with a mind-boggling array of standard features and advanced technological features. They were the ride of choice for celebrities and captains of industry, unapologetically exuding success through excess, but even the more humbly priced Cadillacs offered a lot for the money. This one, with the fresh restoration, unique color and air suspension, is ready to enjoy a night out on the town.
F201 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 1Q87T3N143213 $45,000.00 $55,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Yellow over Black. The second-generation Chevrolet Camaro entered the marketplace to public acclaim in the middle of the 1970 model year, but nothing to emerge from the plants at Norwood nor Los Angeles equaled the performance possibilities of this well-developed Resto Mod version. Built in the Pro Touring tradition, this 1973 example also has Z28 designations throughout, the RPO which heralded the most competition-oriented road-course package of the Camaro’s early years. Modern upgrades will make this car just as enjoyable to drive. The biggest retrofit was to an LT1 engine package, and not the original version discontinued from 1972, but the 1990s-era Corvette-associated corporate design that revolutionized the small-block’s heritage. Though it has a reconfigured engine block, cylinder heads, intake and accessories, it retained a commonality in engine mounts and bellhousing bolt patterns, permitting its ready installation into an older vehicle. In this case, it has the OEM fuel injection and select detail upgrades including Dynatech headers and a K&N cold-air intake. Behind it is a 5-speed manual transmission ending in a 10-bolt rear-end package. A 4-wheel disc-brake package has also been added to bring the suspension up to date. The exterior is covered in a Solar Yellow paint with black Rally stripes, a cowl hood, front chin spoiler and decklid rear spoiler. Inside, this car has been heavily retrofitted with a full-length center console, custom dash design featuring matched Auto Meter Ultra-Lite gauges, Vintage Air, a Kenwood Excelon stereo and navigation system, and a Grant GT performance steering wheel. In place of the factory wheels are a set of chrome-trimmed 5-spoke American Racing wheels with wider rubber. This Camaro is offered with owner’s manuals for the operation of the modern accessories plus a photo album of restoration images.
F202 1982 Toyota FJ43 Landcruiser FJ43-51432 $75,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue and Beige over Dark Brown. Originally conceived to aid in the Korean War efforts, the Land Cruiser was Japan’s answer to England’s Land Rover and America’s Jeep. Rugged and ready, the familiar FJ-40 was introduced in 1960, a more civilized version of the earlier military and commercial FJs. The FJ-43 is a medium-wheelbase Land Cruiser, about 14-inches longer overall than the better-known FJ-40, which used a short wheelbase. The demand for a more spacious FJ largely came from South America where farms and plantations called for additional cargo and passenger space, but the concept was well received around the world. This FJ-43 Land Cruiser underwent a body-off restoration by an FJ specialist with more than eight years of experience and features a 5-speed manual transmission, locking hubs and the factory, matching-numbers 4.2L/135 HP 2F engine. The blue exterior shines with a nice depth and clarity, complemented by the beige soft top and rare dark brown leather interior. Riding on an Old Man Emu suspension system and 33×13.5×15 BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires around new OE 15-inch steel wheels, the FJ is equipped with power steering and power disc brakes. Passengers will adore the air conditioning in warmer climates and the OEM fog lights when the sun goes down in remote areas. A roll bar adds a little more peace of mind when traversing rugged trails or awkward hills and looks cool to boot, adding to the rugged image FJs present. Though considerably fewer FJ-43s were sold than FJ-40s, the FJ-43 offered owners more room and also lent a smoother ride, both welcome attributes. FJ-43s are more difficult to find than FJ-40s, particularly in a condition such as this one. Simply building onto the legendary reputation the Land Cruiser brand established, the FJ-43 showed once again Toyota’s commitment to serve its’ FJ customers’ needs by expanding the product line for their unique needs.
F203 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback 5F09K705023 $75,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Metallic Mitc Grey over Black. The debut of the 289 High Performance small-block in May 1964 provided the Mustang with the high-revving horsepower needed to support the new pony car’s sports-car image. This factory Hi-Po fastback was owned by Ford senior designer T.L. Land, who worked in Ford’s Fairlane, Falcon and Mustang design studio during 1961-62. Ordered with the 289 High Performance, close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission, disc brakes, handling package, Interior Décor Group and special-order Lincoln Metallic Mist Gray paint, the Mustang was personalized with a prototype grille that was designed by Land. Known as the K-code for its engine identification in the VIN, the high-revving small-block is the most coveted powerplant for first-generation 1965-66 Mustangs. Rated at 271 HP, the 289 Hi-Po engine came from the factory with a special solid-lifter camshaft, 4-barrel Autolite carburetor topped by an open-element air cleaner, dual-point distributor, high-flow exhaust manifolds and reciprocating assembly strengthened by hardened-tested crankshaft, thicker main bearing caps and larger rod bolts. Due to the anticipated high-performance usage, the Hi-Po Mustangs were equipped with Ford’s stoutest drivetrain components, including the stout 9-inch rear end. The optional Interior Décor Group, also known as the “Pony” interior, supplied a luxury look with unique bucket seats that incorporated embossed running horses in the seat backs, molded door panels with courtesy lights, wood-grain inserts and 3-spoke steering wheel with wood rim. Now restored, this fastback is also equipped with manual choke, solid accelerator linkage, column-mounted Rally-Pak tachometer and clock, floor console, vintage-style Torq Thrust wheels and Shelby “Cobra” aluminum valve covers. Over the past 45 years, this Mustang has been in the possession of only three owners, including T.L. Land, Harry Wykes and the current owner.
F208 1981 Porsche 911 Targa WP0EA0910BS160708 $45,000.00 $60,000.00 N/R $16,500 €14,250 -63% Bright Yellow over Black. The Porsche Targa was an innovative approach to open-air motoring. Its basket-handle hoop provided immense rollover protection, dramatically increased the overall structural integrity and made a bold styling statement. In typical Porsche fashion, the engineers and stylists developed a creative solution to the ever-stringent federally mandated safety concerns and the overwhelming customer demand for a fresh-air 911 variant. This 1981 Porsche 911 SC Targa has been restored and fitted with various body modifications including a distinctive RUF-style front-bumper valence, a 964-inspired rear-bumper valence, Strosek-style side rocker cladding and a 993-inspired rear wing. Finished in Bright Yellow with a contrasting black interior, the 911 Targa is the perfect vehicle for sunny-day pleasure driving. If the weather turns inclement, the Targa top can be quickly put in place to provide a secure cabin. This Targa is from the 911 G-series cars that were built from 1974-1983. These models were the first 911s to utilize impact bumpers front and rear and are referred to with the moniker of “short-hood”—as opposed to the “long-hood” small-bumper models that saw their final year of production in 1973. The G-Series were also the first 911s to feature the federally mandated tall-headrest seats affectionately referred to as “tombstone” seats by Porsche enthusiasts. In 1978, Porsche introduced the 911SC and made a significant engine change from the pre-existing magnesium-case 2.7L to that of an aluminum-case 3.0L powerplant. This 1981 Porsche 911 Targa is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power seats, a five-gauge instrument panel and an upgraded Alpine CD stereo unit. Fitted with a complete set of chromed Fuchs alloy wheels mounted with Bridgestone tires, it appears ready to supply many more miles of open-air fun.
F215 1968 Dodge Hemi Dart LO23 Super Stock L023M8B323850 $175,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red race over semi race. There is little that needs to be said about the Chrysler Hemi engine of the 1966-1971 era, as it retains an immense legacy of performance to this day. Some might question what its ultimate installation was during those years, and people who know might well state it was this 1968 release. Special cars like this Dodge, known as the Demented Dart, were lightened to the extent that they were no longer street legal and are considered the grand finale of the factory Super Stock releases of the 1960s Mopar lineup. This is one of 80 LO23-code Hemi Darts built in the spring of that year, created under contract from Chrysler by Hurst Industries explicitly to race in NHRA competition. These cars featured the final-ever factory-authorized installation of the cross-ram-equipped Race Hemi with dual offset Holley carburetors, a reworked engine bay for fitment, modified rear-wheel housings and Hooker headers as standard equipment. In this case, the NHRA-rated 500 HP Hemi was backed by a modified A727 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic. Thin glass, lightweight doors, fiberglass body panels and spartan interiors also made them the fastest cars in that Super Stock division immediately. The Demented Dart was sold new in Edmonton, Alberta, to Cam Noseworthy and raced successfully in Canada and the United States. Noseworthy and Dick Painter shared the driving duties. Listed in the S/S Hemi Registry, builder Dale Reed professionally freshened the engine in 2011. This Dodge benefits from upgraded components like the Dana 60 rear end, a roll cage, Cragar wheels and Goodyear Eagle slicks. On the floor is a B&M ratchet shifter and a Mopar tach monitors RPM. This sale will even include vintage photographs of this car. The Hurst Hemi packages remain the only NHRA-legal Super Stock cars to ever win class at every single race they appeared at. Tributes abound these days, but this one is for real.

S4 1917 Ford Model TT Huckster S0388039 $30,000.00 $40,000.00 N/R $13,200 €11,400 -56% Black and Wood over Black. The Ford one-ton TT truck made its debut in 1917 on a factory-strengthened Model T-based chassis built with beefed-up suspension and dual brakes for heavy-duty use. Outside companies transformed the bare Ford TT chassis into everything from panel vans and stake beds to buses and this wood- and steel-bodied pickup. These vehicles were originally built for the salesmen and purveyors of wares, otherwise known as hucksters, which lent the truck its name. The first-year Ford TT Huckster was restored to original specifications with meticulous attention to authentic detail from its front hand-crank starter and hardwood body to the single gas-lantern red-lens tail light. The TT-specification 10-gallon tank feeds the 176 CI L-head 4-cylinder engine that was rebuilt to its original 20 HP at 1,700 RPM specification and detailed with period-correct leather accessory drive belts and woven spark-plug wires. The famously determined Ford banger is backed by a 2-speed planetary gear transmission and TT-truck worm-drive rear axle geared to haul one short ton or 2,000 pounds. Factory-issue dual front-cowl lamps are joined by a pair of headlamps powered by a 6-volt electric system for pickup and delivery of goods and services day or night. A handcrafted and fitted hardwood Husker body and bed are reinforced with wrought-iron hardware and the steel cowl fenders and chassis are finished in historically correct low-sheen black paint. The cab is equipped with 4-spoke wood-rim steering wheel, black bench-seat upholstery, rubber Ford-logo floor covering and hand-operated circular brass horn for a genuine huckster motoring experience. Wood-spoke wheels are outfitted with removable steel rims and new reproduction solid rubber tires topped with polished Ford-logo bearing dust caps for stylish transportation, presentation and sales of products from the versatile and historic heavy-duty Ford TT Huckster.
S5 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado 396876M520954 $17,000.00 $25,000.00 N/R $22,000 €19,000 Mid Trumpet Gold over Parchment. The emphasis on personal luxury has been found in many fine automobiles, but just one American model has ever attained as high as third place as European Car of the Year. That was the 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado, which was also honored as the “Motor Trend” magazine Car of the Year that same year, when it was first introduced. This matching-numbers example is a two-owner vehicle showing 70,183 actual miles with a log book and known ownership history, and it still displays the aggressive visual prowess that helped give this inaugural release such recognition. Indeed, for the first time since the unfortunate end of Cord in 1937, this was an American-built car with front-wheel-drive. Moreover, power was not from a meager source but via the new Super Rocket 425 CI V-8 engine. This powerplant featured a 4-barrel Rochester carburetor and dual exhaust. Making use of a transaxle designed with the durability of the well-developed Hydra-Matic transmission, these were considered excellent road cars by many original testers. Incidentally, the Toronado was also the first full-size GM vehicle offered with a unitized frame design. Over the course of more than 50 years of careful ownership, this car as received a single repaint in Trumpet Gold and still retains its original interior, which features a parchment white front bench seat featuring a center divider, butterfly-design horn ring, air conditioning, power windows and tilt and telescopic steering wheel. Special wheels with whitewalls give the car additional class, and its covered headlamps and individualistic body curves demonstrated how Oldsmobile diligently wanted to meet and overtake the market share dominated by designs like the Ford Thunderbird and Buick Riviera. Deluxe editions like this one outsold the standard version by almost 6 to 1. Today, these special cars remain both iconic and revolutionary in design. This sale will include the original owner’s manual, factory sales brochure and memorabilia.
S6 1972 Triumph TR6 Convertible CC80647 $17,000.00 $25,000.00 N/R Not sold Not sold N/A Saffron over Black leather. There is something to state about the pride of ownership. Moreover, when a car built in 1972 has been with that first purchaser from day one, it offers a special opportunity to the second purchaser to understand that unique sense as well. This one-owner 1972 Triumph TR6 is unrestored and has been cared for and enjoyed since the time of its construction. It shows 62,000 original miles. Like a number of smaller British marques, the Triumph was actually constructed and marketed primarily for export. The TR6 was an eight-year model run from 1968 to 1976 created by the Triumph Motor Company at Speke, Liverpool, UK. By this time, the firm founded in 1885 was part of the expanding British Leyland Motor Company. Of the more than 90,000 TR6 units built, fewer than 10,000 of them were sold in the UK. The TR-series originated in 1950 and were much refined by the time this example was assembled. Noteworthy were styling changes that resulted in crisp front and rear edges on the TR6 release. Powered by Triumph’s 2.5L straight-6 powerplant, U.S.-spec models were carbureted and featured a 4-speed manual transmission. Built on a traditional frame design, these spritely cars use a rack-and-pinion steering and a semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, with brakes consisting of discs at the front and drums at the rear. The interior is nicely appointed with bucket seats, a dashboard with walnut veneer and large-face rally-oriented instrumentation, as well as a deck-mount luggage rack. This wonderfully original example is painted in Saffron Yellow and has a tonneau cover, auxiliary factory hardtop and soft convertible top. It features mild changes from stock, but original components will be included as well. Today, it rides on Michelin redline tires and the sizable 15-inch factory wheels, resulting in a look of serious driving enjoyment.

S8 1977 Honda Civic CVCC SGC3517370 $20,000.00 $30,000.00 $22,000 €19,000 Mid White over Beige. Finding an early Honda Civic CVCC in good condition at all is a relatively difficult task, but discovering a one-owner, California “blue plate” example with less than 20,000 original miles is like finding a needle in a haystack. This 1977 Civic CVCC shows 19,925 miles and features original white paint with the original factory pinstriping and a tan vinyl interior. Garage kept, it’s equipped with the ED3 1488cc inline 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission, a radio and a heater. Original documentation includes the sales paperwork, purchase order, copy of the original check, original warranty cards and the sales brochure. The CVCC, or Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion, engine combined diesel technology with traditional gasoline-powered engine designs to create an engine that ran so cleanly and so efficiently that a catalytic converter was not required. First appearing in 1975, the ED1 CVCC was an engineering marvel that traced its roots to the 1970 Honda N600 hatchback. In a fuel-starved United States, the Honda CVCC was a welcome advancement that made other manufacturers take notice. The CVCC technology was impressive enough that it was added to the Mechanical Engineering Heritage of Japan. Introduced for the 1972 model year, production ceased in 1979 with about 936,000 Civics built in various body styles. In the 1970s, rust was a problem for many cars, and Honda stepped up to the plate to offer customers free replacements of body panels that rusted. Unusually, this had the effect of making Honda a hero to a generation of customers. Weighing in at about 1,500 pounds, the Civic CVCC could achieve about 40 MPG, which, especially in the 1970s, was huge. But it was also no slouch, as the highly advanced engine could scoot a hatchback along at decent speeds and spirited driving through canyons and traffic alike, which proved relatively easy for the Civic CVCC.
S9 1949 Crosley Hotshot Roadster VC10001 $30,000.00 $50,000.00 $30,800 €26,600 Mid Green Blue over Red. Serial No. VC10001 is the very first Crosley Hotshot. Recognized as America’s first postwar production sports car, the Hotshot was introduced in 1949 to a market hungry for a fresh, fun car. While the sports-car market was small, Crosley was also building a number of other vehicles that fed the coffers, efficient vehicles that were affordable and largely depicted quality construction and design. The brainchild of Powell Crosley Jr., the Hotshot was only 145 inches long and was powered by a 725cc engine, one of the most advanced postwar American production engines. Backed by a manual transmission and sporting only two seats, the Hotshot quickly became one of the most popular amateur sports/race cars ever devised, winning a number of competitions. Serial No. 1 is presented in a light shade of green-blue with an interior featuring red upholstery over the seats. The steel wheels feature chrome hubcaps and are wrapped with whitewall tires. Absolutely adorable, the Hotshot offered enthusiasts the chance to have a remarkably quick and nimble car to race or just enjoy, or both. Very much designed and built with European influences in mind, the Hotshot was on par with the likes of MG, Triumph, Fiat and other brands with sporting notions. In spite of a number of firsts to Crosley’s credit, its use of a military engine in a civilian vehicle didn’t go very well, and as things settled from World War II and the Big Three began regrouping themselves into automobile production, Crosley sales began to slip. Soon, the Big Three were offering larger, more powerful and luxuriously equipped cars for just a few dollars more than any Crosley—even the Hotshot and a special all-wheel-drive farm and town vehicle couldn’t stop the company’s decline. But, in its brief term, Crosley introduced a number of innovations and brought America its first sports car: the Hotshot. And this example was the very first one.
S10 1960 Austin-Healey Mark I HBN7L/3988 $110,000.00 $130,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Redline Pearl and Bronze Metallic over Pasubio leather. By 1956, Austin-Healey was looking to upgrade its highly successful 100 Series 4-cylinder sports car. By elongating the chassis 2 inches and utilizing a 2.6L inline 6-cylinder engine, the new Austin-Healey 100-6 was able to elevate the roadster’s performance and market longevity. However, this proved to be just an interim solution, as on July 1, 1959, BMC announced the creation of the Austin-Healey 3000, or what would come to be known as the “Big Healey.” While the chassis and bodywork were ostensibly unchanged from the 100-6, the first-generation (Mk1) Austin-Healey 3000s benefitted from an enlarged 3.0L BMC C-Series 6-cylinder engine that could now hurl the 3,000-pound Austin-Healey to a speed of 100 MPH in just 31 seconds. With this added speed and power, the 3000 also received disc brakes at the front to improve braking efficiency. Available as a 2+2 (BT7 designation) or as a two-seat roadster (BN7), the 3000 would prove to be immensely successful both on the track and in the showrooms of American dealers, where the lion’s share were sold from its introduction in 1959 to the end of production in 1967. The example on offer is an early 3000 MK1 roadster, built on October 13, 1959, and licensed as a 1960. The subject of an extensive, 18-month, frame-off restoration (2016–2017), this roadster is magnificently finished in Redline Pearl over Bronze metallic paint and trimmed in butter-like Pasubio leather with contrasting red piping. Delivered in California on October 26, 1959, this Austin-Healey has remained a California car until its current owner relocated it to Florida. One of only 2,825 BN7 roadsters built, this example comes equipped with a host of original factory options that include overdrive transmission, a removable hardtop, chrome wire wheels, laminated windscreen, adjustable steering column, heater, Roadspeed tires and fitted luggage.
S11 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series II Coupe P1R27859 $90,000.00 $115,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Regal Red over Black leather. After an unprecedented level of success throughout the 1950s with its XK120/140/150 line of sports cars, Jaguar needed something new to carry its flag into the 1960s. In March 1961, that something new was revealed to the world in the form of the E-Type, or XKE. Conceived as a road-going evolution of Jaguar’s Le Mans-winning D-Type, the E-Type employed all the latest racing technologies of the day, including monocoque construction, 4-wheel disc brakes and independent front and rear suspension, all wrapped in a lithesome Malcolm Sayer-penned body that spurned no less than Enzo Ferrari to dub it, “the most beautiful car ever made.” Powered initially by a 3.6L and later a 4.2L DOHC inline 6-cylinder engine, the early MkI E-Types were immensely popular with more than 38,000 examples being sold up until 1968. In 1968, Jaguar released a Series 2 version of the E-Type, ostensibly to satisfy new safety and emission regulations going into effect in the United States. In addition to exterior changes to the bumper and lighting equipment, the Series 2 cars received revised seating interior treatments, while under the hood, the America-bound Series 1 cars saw the triple SU carburetors replaced with dual Strombergs, resulting in a revised power output of 246 HP from the 6-cylinder engine. Approximately 18,000 Series 2 cars were built from 1968–1971. This E-Type on offer is an award-winning 1970 Series 2 Fixed Head Coupe that is one of just 3,786 left-hand-drive examples. Having undergone a comprehensive restoration in 2016, this stunning Regal Red-on-black example, features the more powerful European-spec triple SU carburetor setup, 4-speed transmission and factory power steering. Originally a California-delivered car, this E-Type spent the majority of its life in sunny California—only being moved to Switzerland in the last 10 years—before coming back to join a Florida collection.
S13 1982 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser FJ40-933979 $60,000.00 $80,000.00 $44,000 €38,000 -27% Red over Black vinyl. A professional level nut-and-bolt restoration was performed on this 1982 Toyota FJ-40 hardtop. Florida-based Land Cruiser specialists House of Cruisers brought the all-terrain 4×4 back to factory-issue condition using a curated selection of new OEM Toyota components from exhaust and suspension to decals and inspection marks. Aftermarket air conditioning and select improvements were chosen from experience gained only after years of restoring and driving the globally recognized off-road icons. The authentically detailed Toyota 4.2L inline 6-cylinder 2F engine was serviced, mechanically inspected and outfitted with a new original-spec exhaust for ongoing all-terrain propulsion, and backed by a 4-speed manual transmission and dual-range transfer-case mesh with inspected and serviced front and rear axles for assured delivery of 135 HP and 200 lb-ft of torque. New OEM Toyota suspension and power steering join rebuilt front disc and rear drum brakes for precisely modulated on- or off-road control from factory steel wheels dressed with new hubcaps and BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A radial tires. The matching swing-out spare stands ready for uninterrupted adventure. The 40-series hardtop body was refinished into its factory white over Freeborn Red color scheme and then outfitted with a blend of new and refinished trim, accessories, emblems and stainless-steel fasteners. Replica vinyl upholstery returned the cab to its durable and comfortable original condition from steering wheel to instructional placards for the transfer case and locking front hubs. A roll cage and new seatbelts add a measure of safety. Air conditioning mounted beneath the dash by Nostalgic AC delivers modern climate control, and the period-correct Toyota AM/FM cassette waits to belt out some tunes on the true 2-channel stereo.
S14 1959 Fiat Multipla 058779 $65,000.00 $85,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Mouse Grey and Off White over Multi coloured. Known as the Fiat 600 Multipla All Service, the Multipla was a jack-of-all-trades offering a high-capacity interior perfect for carrying people, luggage and cargo, and so on. If it doesn’t fit inside, a roof-mounted luggage rack can help. This one emerged from a two-year restoration in March of 2018 painted in the rare color combination of Mouse Grey and Off White. The rear-mounted 600cc inline 4-cylinder engine produces 28 HP that is translated by a 3-speed manual transmission to the rear wheels. The interior is presented with cloth seats and gray carpeting, and it features seats that fold flatly into the floor. A spare tire is mounted vertically in the passenger side of the cab. Riding on a 4-wheel independent suspension, 12-inch steel wheels are decorated with whitewall tires and chrome hubcaps. Offered with the owners and shop manuals, this particular car is a multiple-time local-award winner, and one look shows it’s for obvious reasons. Early advertising of the Multipla depicted its many uses, including a great vehicle to sleep in while on long journeys or just getting away from the crowd of the city. Fiats were long known as efficient vehicles to serve the multitudes and masses, and the Multipla was its largest family offering at the time. Clever in many ways, it could hold a maximum of six people, but seating could be configured to hold fewer people and more cargo. For all intents and purposes, the Multipla was not only ahead of the curve in van design and construction, but it quietly defined the modern minivan. Introduced in 1956, the Multipla rode on the standard Fiat 600’s 78.7-inch wheelbase with a body that was only 19.7 inches longer than a contemporary Mini Cooper. The genius was in the flattish nose and seating locations, especially in the front, which were positioned over the axle. Adorable by design, the Multipla was a remarkable vehicle for those on a budget looking to move a multitude of things and people.
S16 2002 Ford Thunderbird 1FAHP60A92Y112154 $40,000.00 $50,000.00 $30,250 €26,125 -24% Whisper White over Red and Black leather. When the first Ford Thunderbird debuted for 1955, it really astonished people. Here was a small, sporty Ford blending European accents with a decidedly American flair. The Thunderbird spanned 10 iterations until production ended in 1997, leaving behind a long string of devoted fans who sadly said goodbye to their favorite model. But Ford had other ideas in mind, and in 2002, Thunderbird returned looking very much as it did when it first emerged in the mid-1950s. Two seats, a small V-8 under the hood, an optional hardtop with a porthole window harkened the obvious lineage back to the original, and it was well received. This Thunderbird is from that first year of return, 2002, and has covered a scant 26 miles from new. Only 26—it’s likely one of the very lowest-mileage Thunderbirds in the world and a rare opportunity to purchase a 2002 Thunderbird as if it were new with only a few demonstrator miles. Presented in Whisper White, it’s equipped with the interior color-accent accessories package lending it an interior of red and black upholstery with aluminum trim. The car is very well equipped with power-operated seats upholstered in Nudo Leather, automatic temperature controls, a power convertible top, chrome cast-aluminum wheels, power tilt steering wheel, AM/FM stereo with an in-dash 6-disc CD changer, power windows, power locks, power brakes and speed-sensitive power steering among other amenities, placing it in the top of the automotive food chain. It also has the signature removable hardtop with a porthole. Purchased new on March 26, 2002, at Tyson’s Ford in Vienna, Virginia, the car retains its original window sticker, keys and owner’s manual. Powered by the 3.9L 32-valve DOHC V-8 engine mated to an automatic, this Thunderbird presents a nice translation from the original idea of effortless, smooth, open-top motoring … and this one has only logged 26 miles from new.
S17 1990 Mercedes-Benz 500SL WDBFA66E1LF003664 $30,000.00 $40,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grey over Tan leather. Delivered three weeks before Mercedes-Benz dealerships received their shipments, this particular machine is the first 500SL of the revised design sold in the United States; that’s right, it’s the first. Offered by the original owner, this 500SL has never been registered. Powered by a 5.0L V-8 engine mated to an automatic transmission, it hosts unique features like an AMG appearance package with sport wheels and white gauges. Equipped with a removable hardtop, the convertible top is stowed under an automated electro-hydraulic textile tonneau cover. When the tops are removed, an electronic roll bar keeps occupants safe in the event of a rollover. It can also be raised to add a little style while the top is down. Finished in dark charcoal gray with an oyster-colored interior, the car still exudes a very modern appearance in spite of it being nearly 30 years old. When the outgoing SL was introduced in 1972, it was an immediate classic. Known to Mercedes-Benz as the R107, the car would sustain until 1989, the last car rolling off the line in June, replaced by the R129 for the 1990 model year. The R129 would cease production in 2002 after seeing 213,000 built. The R129 was one of the most interesting and consumer-friendly cars Mercedes-Benz ever built. It was available with an amazing array of 6-, 8- and even 12-cylinder engines. In addition, a multitude of AMG upgrades were available, from simple appearance packages to full performance conversions. It offered a number of very modern features such as high-intensity discharge headlights and CD-changer stereo systems. It also proved to be an exceedingly safe drop top. The R129 had many exciting innovations that seemed to reach for the future. To this day, this is a car that still excites people; the modern, aerodynamic styling, multitude of engines and packages and myriad creature comforts and safety amenities created a modern roadster that was again an instant classic—and this particular example is the first example ever sold in the United States.
S19 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible 5R08C184594 $55,000.00 $65,000.00 $49,500 €42,750 -10% Rangoon Red over White. Built on March 6, 1965, and most recently refinished in 2017, this original code-J Rangoon Red Mustang convertible shows off two coveted option groups introduced in the spring of 1965: the Interior Decor and GT Equipment. Priced at $107, the Interior Decor Group added a five-dial instrument cluster, various simulated-walnut accents (instrument panel, glovebox door and steering-wheel rim), padded sunvisors, deluxe upholstery and door panels, pistol-grip door handles (also with wood accents), courtesy lights in the doors, partially carpeted kick panels and brightly trimmed pedals. Last but definitely not least were seat inserts embossed with galloping horses, explaining this upgrade’s nickname: “pony interior.” Available with all three 1965 body styles (hardtop, convertible and 2+2 fastback), the $165 GT Equipment Group further enhanced both form and function. For starters, it could be combined only with a 4V (Ford lexicon for 4-barrel carburetor) engine, either the 289/225 HP Challenger Special or its 271 HP High Performance Windsor small-block sibling. All transmissions, manual or automatic, were available behind the former, while the latter was limited to a 4-speed stick—a C6 Cruise-O-Matic automatic is present in this case. Included as well in 1965’s GT deal were unassisted front disc brakes, dual exhausts and the Special Handling Package, which typically stiffened springs, shocks and the front stabilizer bar and also added quicker 22:1 steering. Chrome trumpets (exiting through cutouts in a special rear valance) were added to those twin tailpipes, and the GT image was enhanced further with appropriate badges, lower body-side stripes (with exclusive “Mustang” block lettering) and a unique grille bar framed by fog lamps. Five-dial instrumentation also came in the GT package and incorporated a panel done in camera-case black when not combined with the Interior Decor option. Additional extra-cost features seen here are styled steel wheels, whitewall tires, power steering, a power convertible top, under-dash air conditioning, a console and the Rally-Pac clock/tachometer combo.
S20 1957 Ford Fairlaine 500 Sunliner C7RC119951 $70,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Flame Red and Colonial White over Red and White. This 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Sunliner Convertible sports a long list of optional extras that beautifully complement its immaculate presentation. In the most sweeping break from convention since the 1949-50 models that literally rescued Dearborn from financial disaster, Ford strode onto the 1957 stage with an all-new full-size lineup that addressed the market’s growing demand for “lower, longer, wider” automobiles. No fewer than seven Ford designers, including Ford Styling Chief George Walker, collaborated to produce a remarkably restrained final design that, surprisingly, drew many of its details from the ostentatious 1955 Mystere show car. The key to the new Fairlanes’ low-rider look was a new perimeter frame that allowed designers to drop the floor pan, and therefore the car’s overall height by a full two inches, a goal aided by the use of a new differential that placed the pinion gear lower in the gear case, reducing the height of the driveshaft. The luxurious 500 was introduced at the top of a lineup that comprised 20 trim levels and body styles, including the glamorous Sunliner convertible seen here in festive two-tone Flame Red and Colonial White with a white soft top and matching white and red interior complete with spilt-bench seat and pushbutton radio. Presented in show-quality condition, it is powered by the 292 CI Thunderbird Special version of Ford’s Y-block V-8 engine equipped with a 2-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust and mated to a 2-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission. The 1957 Fords featured improved handling through the use of a redesigned front suspension with trailing lower control arms and longer rear leaf springs; here they are enhanced with optional Master Guide power steering and Swift Sure power brakes. Many of the period’s popular dress-up items add considerable panache to this already-stylish Fairlane 500 Sunliner, including wide whitewall tires on chromed wire wheels with 3-bar Thunderbird spinners, chromed V-bar front bumper guard, dual outside mirrors and lower sill and stone guards.
S21 1956 Ford Thunderbird P6FH170314 $75,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Fiesta Red and White over Red and White. In 1956, the Ford Thunderbird hurtled into its second production year with only minor refinements to its successful combination of high performance and elegant personal appointments. According to its gate release, this 1956 Ford Thunderbird originally made its way from the factory to Crater Lake Motors in Medford, Oregon, as a representative of the personal-luxury sport coupe so popular that it outsold the Chevrolet Corvette 5 to 1. The Thunderbird underwent a restoration for a return to what Ford proudly announced in 1956 as the latest version of an automotive classic, and it comes with an original Ford shop manual, Thunderbird parts catalog and restoration photo album. The optional 312 CI Thunderbird V-8 engine was rated for 245 HP with a Double Twin-Jet Holley 4-barrel carburetor and factory dual exhaust. Factory Thunderbird-logo finned-aluminum valve covers add period-perfect under-hood style, and the Y-block performer is backed by a Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission. The low-slung X-frame chassis is outfitted with independent front and four-leaf-spring rear suspension, double-acting shock absorbers, power steering and duo-servo power brakes for famously smooth and sporting Thunderbird road-holding ability. The Thunderbird was refinished into its original Fiesta Red color and comes with a matching porthole hardtop and white grained-vinyl soft top. Front bumper bullets and fender skirts add midcentury style. Red and white come together in the two-tone bucket-seat interior with a color-harmonized steering wheel on a telescoping column, floor-mount shifter and wraparound dash with tachometer and clock. Power windows join an optional Town & Country signal-seeking radio that automatically selects local-in-town or distant country stations for pushbutton convenience and entertainment. The Thunderbird rides on body-color steel wheels and whitewall tires with full wheel covers and a matching Continental kit spare.
S22 1956 Ford Thunderbird P6FH301783 $75,000.00 $80,000.00 $57,750 €49,875 -23% Colonial White over Black and White. The name Thunderbird became associated with Ford’s luxury-sport model in 1955, but it was the following year, 1956, that some true refinements made this car a classic. The vehicle offered here is a 1956 model featuring a frame-off restoration with a laser-straight body that has been finished in factory code-E Colonial White. This car stands out in the crowd with a matched-color hardtop, a feature that was not considered standard fare for Thunderbirds according to the sales brochure. The hardtop and soft top are both finished in white here, but the interior is a wonderfully complementary white and black two-tone combination, making this a stunning car inside and out. Under the hood is the new-for-1956 312 CI Y-block Thunderbird Special engine, featuring custom engine dress-ups like the cast Thunderbird valve covers and chrome air cleaner. It is backed up with an automatic transmission. The new continental kit was for more than simply show, as its relocation opened valuable trunk space up for travel. Other external cues are the bumper bullets, script logo identification, the scoop on the front-hinged hood, clean grille styling, exterior driver’s-side mirror and front-fender “louver trim.” Fender skirts complete the look of 1950s style. Inside is the full-width power bench seat, heat and defrost options, power steering, the Town and Country radio, floor shift with round-knob handle and windshield washers. This car rides on steel wheels with chrome wire wheel full-size hubcaps and wide whitewall tires that further complement the overall appearance. The two-seat 1955-57 Thunderbird was arguably Ford’s halo car of the 1950s and the proper response to Chevrolet’s Corvette. This exquisite example in seamless Colonial White offers wonderful head-turning possibilities to its next caretaker.
S23 1958 Chevrolet Apache Pickup 3A58S128158 $55,000.00 $65,000.00 $62,700 €54,150 Mid Gold and Beige over White and Beige. If all your rowdy friends are coming over tonight, they will be impressed by this 1958 Chevrolet Apache Pickup, as it was previously owned by Hank Williams Jr. himself. If they are not so rowdy, what will impress them is that this is a very special General Motors 50th Anniversary edition painted by the factory in two-tone Anniversary Gold and Honey Beige, which were not colors normally available on Chevrolet commercial vehicles. This great utility-focused model features premium equipment as well. Moreover, 1958 was the first year for both the Apache name and the Fleetside bed design, with a front-end restyling that included the change to quad headlamps. Under the hood is a 235/145 HP Thriftmaster inline 6-cylinder engine with a special engine decal and associated Delco yellow-letter battery visible close by. This engine is mated to a 3-speed transmission with column shift. This Apache is the deluxe cab version, with interior two-tone paint, extra chrome, bench seating and a large rear window, and it includes a window defogger. The exterior trim level makes this vehicle a curbside standout, as it features front bumper guards, exterior rearview mirrors and Fleetside callouts. The bed is decked in finished wood and there is a locking gas cap as well. This truck rides on steel wheels with full-size chrome wheel covers and wide whitewall tires. In stellar condition, this particular truck has been noteworthy, shown at both the 2008 Sloan Museum Auto Fair and the Chevrolet 100th birthday celebration. More recently, special invitations to Concours d’Elegance of America in 2011 and 2014 were offered. The sale includes photos of Hank Williams Jr. with the truck, a certificate and a copy of the title. Coupled with the changes for the 1958 model year and the 50th Anniversary heritage, this is a unique opportunity to own a piece of automotive and music history.

S24 1958 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible J58S103772 $140,000.00 $180,000.00 $121,000 €104,499 -14% Regal Turquoise and White over Black. By 1958, Chevrolet was proudly marketing Corvette as “America’s Only True Sports Car,” and with good reason. The two-seat model had survived to become a benchmark for the division, and this example sums that reality up very nicely. After all, this car is an NCRS Top Flight Award winner (2013) and is covered in brilliant Regal Turquoise with white coves. The 1958 year saw the advent of paired dual headlamps, a cleaner grille design from the 1957 model, and the front-fender scoops that now covered the leading edge of the coves. Of course, horsepower played a prominent role in owning a Corvette, and this example went straight to the top with its matching-numbers 283/290 HP fuel-injected engine. This ultimate combination was sold under RPO 579D and in this case is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. A 3.70 final-gear ratio made this car a thrill ride for driver and passenger alike, so it was providential that the new standard equipment seat belts and passenger grab bar were included. Also inside this cockpit is an Al Knoch Charcoal vinyl interior with black carpeting, and the car is equipped with both a white soft top and turquoise hardtop. In the dash is the new-for-1958 160 MPH speedometer, a Wonderbar AM Radio, heater option and 3-spoke steering wheel. Spinner-style wheel covers and wide whitewalls are the crowning touch of class on the Corvette. The NCRS award was a result of a spectacular body-off restoration completed by Vintage Vettes in Kansas City, Missouri, and the car has been driven only approximately 1,100 miles since that restoration was completed. The colorful combination of code-252 Regal Turquoise and charcoal interior made this one of 510 so equipped that year, while only 1,007 of the overall production of 9,168 received the great 290 HP engine. If you desire the best, this special fuelie Corvette would be hard to top.
S26 1985 Buick Riviera T-Type Convertible 1G4EZ6791FE410655 $25,000.00 $35,000.00 $22,000 €19,000 -12% White over Maroon leather. In 1985, if you wanted class and luxury, Buick Rivieras like the car offered here were among the best in America. This model year heralded the end of the sixth-generation version of the Riviera nameplate, which had defined Buick’s personal-luxury line since its 1963 introduction. The ’79 model changeover to create the sixth generation was a departure from the past, with front-wheel-drive, but wildly popular as the company sold more than 370,000 of them. Indeed, 65,305 were built this final season of that design, but do not assume the car here is commonplace. That is because this is a T-type turbocharger-optioned convertible, of which the company created a grand total of just 49 units. In fact, this restored beauty is a quite exclusive tribute to Buick’s turbocharged era with an appearance that is not seen often in the collector-car hobby. The heart of the matter is the turbocharged 3.8L V-6 engine, rated at 200 HP and most famous in the Grand National Regal line. Advances like computer-controlled coil ignition and sequential fuel injection made it dependable and efficient. White and red were the only two paint colors offered; this one is white with the maroon leather interior. Inside one finds air conditioning, bucket seats with a center console, and power windows, locks, mirrors and seats. The driving is with ease thanks to a tilt column, cruise control, power steering and power brakes. An AM/FM cassette stereo resides in the dash. Buick’s excellent reputation for quality carries on throughout the design, with crisp lines and a level of refined elegance. Finishing off that sense of luxury are full-size wire wheel covers and whitewall tires. The V-6 T-type Buicks are recognized among the very best performance cars of the 1980s. Whether you are looking for a journey to the past or a low-production drivable convertible, this Buick Riviera is here to light your fire.
S27 1996 Ford Mustang Saleen S351 Speedster 1FALP444XTF160858 $35,000.00 $45,000.00 $27,500 €23,750 -21% Red over Black. As one of 10 Saleen S351 Speedsters built in 1996, this Saleen Mustang presents beautifully with only 9,488 original miles. A documented factory-built Saleen, the rare S351 Speedster combines the power of Ford’s 351 CI small-block with the Thunderbird-like appeal of the optional tonneau cover for the convertible back seat. One of just three produced in Rio Red, this S351 is also equipped with the optional Saleen/Alcon 4-wheel disc brakes, upgraded Kenwood audio system (original radio included), Auburn limited-slip differential and prototype 6-speed manual transmission. Looking for a way to increase power for his Mustangs beyond the factory-supplied 5.0L, Steve Saleen introduced the S351 model in 1994 by offering a purpose-built 351 from the SVT Lightning pickup. For 1996, the S351 models started as V-6 Mustangs before being upgraded into Saleens with 351 power, Racecraft suspension, upgraded interior and Saleen body kit. For the third year of the S351, Saleen continued the evolution of the 351 engine—already equipped with roller rocker arms and Saleen-engineered intake—by adding aluminum heads to increase horsepower to 400. The S351s were also fitted with a 2½-inch high-flow exhaust system, high-performance pressure plate and clutch, larger three-core radiator and Saleen engine-management processor. The S351s wore the same Saleen body kit as the S281 models but with a more aggressive rear spoiler, while the interior came with Recaro sport seats, matching rear-seat leather upholstery, white-face gauges with 200 MPH speedometer and quick-ratio shifter with Saleen shift knob. For enhanced handling, the S351 came with Saleen’s Racecraft suspension that supplied Koni struts and shocks, variable-rate coil springs, G-load brace, urethane sway bar bushings, caster/camber plates and 5-spoke Saleen wheels with 18-inch performance tires. This Saleen S351 is optioned with the $2,315 Speedster package, which added a Sport Bar with third brake light and hard tonneau cover.
S28 1967 Sunbeam Tiger Mark II Roadster B382100268 $155,000.00 $180,000.00 $165,000 €142,499 Mid Green over Black leather. One of just 536 MKIIs produced for 1967, this Sunbeam Tiger represents the rare opportunity to acquire a two-seater British sports car with an American V-8 and ties to Carroll Shelby. Just as Shelby’s Cobra was based on the lesser AC Ace, the Tiger was based on the Sunbeam Alpine. Produced by the Rootes Group between 1964 and 1967, the Tiger came out of the company’s need for a more powerful engine to compete against MGs and Triumphs. Noting the excitement generated by the Cobra, Roote’s Ian Garrad contacted Carroll Shelby, who suggested the 260 CI Ford small-block V-8 and offered to handle the engineering. With fabrication overseen by Phil Remington, the first Tiger was constructed at Shelby American with a transplanted 260, T-10 4-speed, rack-and-pinion steering and an upgraded cooling system. Rootes chairman Lord Rootes was impressed and an agreement was made to purchase 3,000 Ford engines. Shelby had hoped to produce the cars at Shelby American, but the decision was eventually made to build the cars in England with Shelby receiving a royalty on each car sold. Rootes sold 7,128 Tigers in three series: the MKI with the original 260 engine, the MKIA updated with square-cornered doors and soft convertible top, and starting in 1967, the MKII with the larger 289 CI engine. Possessed by the same owner for 29 years, the 1967 Tiger MKII offered here has completed a thorough nut-and-bolt restoration, including a rebuild of the original engine block and drivetrain. Green with a black interior, the British sports car is a Lord Rootes and Howie Schofield award winner and has been presented numerous Best of Show concours awards. Also authenticated by the TAC, the Tiger is equipped with several LAT options, including LAT 70 wheels with LAT 75 spinners. A California black-plate car, the sale includes the original tool kit, owner’s manual and factory workshop manual.
S29 2005 Ferrari 360 Spider 140035 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Nero over Nero leather. A fabulous sports and grand-touring machine in the great tradition of midengined production Ferraris, this 2005 Ferrari 360 Spider exemplifies the significant advances in technology and performance that Ferrari established with such flair at the dawn of the 21st century. Its predecessor, the F355, was a challenge to the old guard who insisted that a “real” Ferrari could only have a V-12 engine. Incredibly beautiful and well-engineered, the 355 left its competitors alone on the horizon behind it, surpassing even the 512 TR in every aspect of performance; it was also a much-needed sales success that helped right Ferrari’s listing fortunes. Nonetheless, Ferrari once again set a new standard with the 360 Modena in 1999. Named after its 3.6L V-8 and the northern Italian town where Enzo Ferrari was born, the Modena was an extraordinary break from the norm. Boasting headlamps with clear lenses and hyper-curvaceous bodywork, it was unlike any Ferrari before it and arguably catapulted Ferrari styling into the new millennium. The 360 made extensive use of aluminum, and although it was a larger car than the 355, it was considerably lighter and stiffer. The 3.6L V-8 engine produced 400 HP and was noted as one of the smoothest V-8s ever designed. A 6-speed manual transmission was standard, but an electrohydraulic manual F1 transmission controlled by paddles behind the steering wheel was also available. The F1 transmission made shifting just shy of instantaneous and gave drivers the sense of driving an F1 race car. In 2001, the 360 Spider joined the lineup and quickly supplanted Modena coupe sales. In 2005, Ferrari 360 production ceased when it was superseded by the 430. This Ferrari 360 Spider F1 features the paddle-shifting gearbox and has only covered 13,018 miles. Equipped with power windows, 4-wheel disc brakes and an Alpine stereo, the car comes with two keys with remotes, books, records, a tool kit and car cover. The black interior presents very well and the Savini wheels and Pirelli tires exquisitely set off the striking black exterior.
S30 1956 Lancia Appia Furgoncino Series II C801902 $55,000.00 $65,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grey over Black. Introduced in 1953, the Lancia Appia replaced the Ardea and remained in production for a decade. Using a unique overhead-valve, 1090cc V-4 engine with a light alloy head and a 4-speed column-mounted manual transmission, the Appia was available in a number of configurations ranging from the family sedan to coach-built coupes and convertibles to the Furgoncino, or small van. Intended to serve small businesses, Appia Furgoncinos were perfect for delivering food, wine, clothing and flowers, and acting as the mode of transport for locksmiths and other service personnel. Some were even used as ambulances. In spite of their versatile nature, only about 2,900 Appia Furgoncinos were produced between 1954 and 1959, when they were phased out in favor of a larger forward-control van. Riding on front coil springs and a rigid rear axle with semi-elliptical springs, 4-wheel drum brakes politely bring the Furgoncino to a stop. Noticeable differences between a Furgoncino and a personal Appia are the larger wheels and tires, lower gearing and reduced horsepower. Finding a panel wagon, or sedan delivery as they are often referred to, in this type of condition can be quite a surprise, as few of these service vehicles survived due to their working nature, especially those wearing a Lancia badge. Lancia was long known as a premium brand with a sporting flair, so to find a Lancia panel wagon is remarkably special. This Furgoncino is highly detailed throughout and finished in two-tone gray-green. Chrome beauty rings and hubcaps dress up the wheels, while moments of chrome, stainless and aluminum trim lightly decorate the vehicle, elevating it from its commercial design. The interior is swathed in rubber, vinyl and plastic, nodding to the service nature of the Appia, but presents exceedingly well. The gauge cluster is neat, tidy and all Italian, but the right-hand-drive layout indicates another Port of Call. This rare Appia Furgoncino is a quite a treat indeed.
S31 2013 McLaren MP4-12C SBM11BAAXDW002434 $145,000.00 $160,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Azure Blue Metallic over Carbon Black. A street supercar that thinks it’s a Formula 1 star, this 2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spider needs to be exercised on a race track to feel its true potential. This MP4-12C Spider is finished in Azure Blue Metallic with a carbon black interior that is punctuated by carbon-fiber trim pieces throughout. Entry and exit are through butterfly doors, in the best McLaren tradition. With a robust 616 HP powering its rear wheels, the mid-engine beast employs a M838T twin-turbocharged 3.8L/616 HP V-8 and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for rapid shifting. Grip is supplied from staggered-sized 235/35R19 front and 305/30R20 rear tires wrapped around granite-finished alloy wheels. Weighing only 3,033 pounds, the MP4-12C Spider can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in 3.2 seconds. This McLaren is capable of a 207 MPH top speed, for which its yellow brake calipers and cross-drilled rotors will come in handy to help slow it down again. And just in case you tire of the soundtrack from the twin-turbocharged V-8 engine, there is a stellar Meridian touchscreen audio system. The MP4-12C Spider features power windows, side mirrors and a two-piece power retractable roof that can deploy or retract in around 20 seconds. Founded by legendary racer Bruce McLaren in 1963, the company has enjoyed stratospheric racing success with an amazing 182 Formula 1 victories, 12 World Drivers’ Championships, eight World Constructors’ Championships, three Indianapolis 500 wins and five consecutive Can-Am Championships. McLaren Group has grown into a conglomerate active in racing: McLaren Applied Technologies, which manufactures everything from composite materials for aerospace and electronics for racing teams including Formula 1, IndyCar and NASCAR to pharmaceutical products. McLaren Automotive—an important part of this group—designed and constructed the MP4-12C Spider at its Woking, UK-based McLaren Technology Centre. Launched in 2011, with production continuing until 2014, this superb machine shows a mere 11,185 miles on the odometer. All it needs now is some good exercise.

S32 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Restomod 124379L500054 $150,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White over Red. In 1969, Chevrolet gave the Camaro a facelift, and it became one of the most popular and identifiable muscle-car designs of all time. Powered by a Wegner-built 416 CI LS3 engine, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Resto Mod is capable of an otherworldly 850 HP with the help of a Magnuson supercharger. The engine breathes through a set of Stainless Works headers, 3-inch exhaust and Dynomax Ultra Flo mufflers. The spent gasses exit through outlets integrated into a Josh Ewing custom-fabricated rear tail panel. To handle the newfound power, a Rockland Gear Tranzilla 5-speed manual transmission was selected, along with a Quick Time bellhousing for safety and Mcleod dual disc clutch. Out back, a TruTrac 3.89 limited-slip differential is stuffed into a Strange Engineering rear housing. It is held by a Weld-in GT Sport rear subframe with a Triangulated 4-link rear suspension with Strange coilovers. To help it cut the corners better, an Art Morrison chassis and subframe were installed that utilize C6 Corvette control arms and knuckles along with a power steering rack for that modern feel. Baer 14-inch disc brakes along with 6-piston calipers pull this hot ride down to a stop. The interior is equally impressive with red leather-wrapped Corbeau A4 seats and Marquez dash housing stuffed with Dakota Digital VHX-1200 gauges. It has an Ididit tilt steering column with a MOMO Trek wheel for comfort, while a Vintage Air climate-control system with Resto Mod air vents aids in keeping pilot and passengers alike cool and comfortable. The vehicle is finished off with a smooth white paint job and a custom fabricated Josh Ewing hood for extra supercharger clearance. It rolls on Forgeline RC3c 18×10 front and 19×12 rear wheels with Nitto NT05 285/35/18 front and 335/30/19 rear tires that round out the modern aesthetics.
S33 1932 Chrysler CP8 Convertible 7526446 $150,000.00 $200,000.00 $159,500 €137,749 Mid Two tone Blue over Black. The 1992 recipient of the AACA National First Prize, this 1932 Chrysler CP8 Convertible is one of only nine reputedly left in existence today. This stately machine has traveled a mere 150 miles since the completion of an extensive, period-correct, body-off restoration and shows exquisitely. The two-tone blue paint is offset by a delicate twin pinstripe in crimson and a black top that matches the black interior. The wire wheels are body colored and wrapped with whitewall tires. Very handsomely equipped, this Chrysler features dual side-mount spare tires in metal covers, an auxiliary trunk rack, dual chrome horns, dual chrome headlights, dual chrome tail lights, dual parking lights, a polished radiator rock guard, an original gazelle radiator-cap mascot, twin air vents mounted atop the cowl and a V-style windshield that is both stylish and functional with individual swing-open panes. The interior is awash with details ranging from the chrome convertible top frame to the turned and polished instrument-cluster surround set like a jewel against the body-colored dashboard. The rumble seat is accessible via a single fender-mounted step. Powered by the Redhead 298/100 HP L-Head inline 8-cylinder engine with a mechanical fuel pump and 3-speed manual transmission, the CP8 was a short-lived model, produced only in 1932 and 1933, but was exemplary of Chrysler’s well-known reputation of producing highly advanced vehicles with engineering and design feats normally reserved for higher-priced cars. Items like hydraulic brakes, adjustable shocks, Floating Power and Pushbutton Freewheeling made Chrysler products truly stand out among the crowd and burnished its well-earned reputation for thinking outside the box. During the early days of motoring, engines started and idled with a noticeable roughness and the Floating Power concept curtailed those issues. This particular CP8 Convertible is offered with the original owner’s manual and presents as an exceedingly rare testament to the majestic prowess of Chrysler design and innovation.
S34 1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible 496241976 $75,000.00 $85,000.00 $56,100 €48,450 -25% Maroon over Black leather. On November 25, 1949, the one-millionth Cadillac was built. Perhaps being named “Motor Trend” magazine’s first-ever “Car of the Year” played a role in increasing sales for the brand. Cadillac’s big 1949 news cen­tered on engineering with the release of a new overhead-valve V-8. Only minor appearance changes were seen, including a more massive grille with parking lights in grooved extension panels. A new dashboard featured a horizontal speedometer. Cadillac serial numbers again matched engine numbers (they were 496200000 to 496292554 for 1949 Series 62 models), and this convertible has No. 496241976 to fit right in the range. The major Series 62 upgrades were trim variations. These machines had grooved front-fender stone shields and bright rocker-panel moldings. The $3,497 con­vertible was an exclusive Series 62 offering and only 8,000 were built. A plusher interior was featured, too. Standard features included power window lifts and twin back-up lights mounted on the decklid. This car also sports chrome-spoke wire wheels and wide whitewall tires. Its interior is upholstered in black leather. Cadillac’s innovative overhead-valve V-8 was the most powerful engine in the automobile industry. It had heads and a block made of cast iron. With a 7.5:1 compression ratio, the 331 CI engine was developed to produce 160 HP and a robust 312 lb-ft of torque. Other notable features included a 126-inch wheelbase, an overall length measuring nearly 216 inches and a low-for-1949 height of 62 inches. A coil-spring independent front suspension as well as a live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and hydraulic brakes with cast-iron drums at all corners were used. The prestigious Milestone Car Society recognizes the 1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible as a Milestone Car, and this is a fine example of the breed.
S35 1971 Rolls-Royce SIlver Shadow LRX11850 $45,000.00 $55,000.00 $24,200 €20,900 -46% Black over Cream leather. Introduced in 1965, the Silver Shadow became Rolls-Royce’s best-selling model over the course of its more than two-decades-long production run. It was a seriously modern-looking and -behaving car in its day: unitary construction, independent rear suspension, automatic chassis leveling and 4-wheel disc brakes. Engine displacement increased from 6.23L to 6.75L in 1969 to compensate for power losses attributed to U.S. emission controls, the same year a long-wheelbase version, such as the car on offer, was introduced. In every regard, this model is competent in traffic conditions today, even in daily use. This 1971 model still has the classic look of the early Silver Shadows, most notably the elegant chrome bumpers and overriders, but has the much nicer-feeling though still uncommonly light rack-and-pinion steering. Mechanically complex—another way of saying vastly overbuilt with multiple redundant systems—a properly sorted Silver Shadow is a joy to drive and really has no equal among its contemporaries in terms of build quality or sense of occasion. This particular car, sold new and always a resident in Colorado, comes with more than $45,000 in receipts for mechanical restoration work, putting a new owner ahead of the game. On this particular black car, the Everflex roof Rolls-Royce used on its long-wheelbase versions to disguise the seam from the 4-inch steel extension welded into the rear compartment blends in particularly well. Many of the long-wheelbase models were bought new by corporate clients and, even in private use, were aimed at the chauffeur-driven market, and so the car on offer comes with the optional and rare power-operated glass partition window. Richly appointed and instantly recognizable as a Rolls-Royce, this design has aged very well.
S36 1950 Ford Custom Convertible B0RH160888 ?? ?? $39,600 €34,200 ?? Burgundy over Black and Red. Owned by one family since new, this 1950 Ford Custom Convertible was originally sold by Berl Berry Motors in San Francisco. It was purchased new by Robert Fischbeck of Piedmont, California, who possessed the car for the rest of his life and passed it on to his family upon his death. Sale of the convertible includes a copy of the original bill of sale dated March 31, 1951. A California car that still has its black and yellow license plates, the Custom was the subject of a professional restoration by Nick Alexander of Huntington Beach, California. Looking classic 1950s, the dark red paint is contrasted by a black convertible top with red piping and the wheels are color-keyed steel with chrome hubcaps and trim rings, all wrapped in Goodyear wide whitewall tires. Inside, the two-tone interior continues the theme with red and black seats along with a red-painted dash with black carpet and door panels. The flathead V-8 is topped by a downdraft carburetor and oil-bath air cleaner. Options include the 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive, pushbutton eight-tube AM radio, Magic Aire heater, dash clock and front and rear bumper guards. While the 1950 Ford appeared identical to the 1949 models, Ford promoted them as having “50 improvements for ’50.” Those updates fixed some of the problems from 1949 and included pushbutton door handles, repositioned parking lights, newly designed hood ornaments, a recessed gas filler neck, non-sag front-seat springs and a three-blade cooling fan. Overall, the 1950 Ford was tighter and quieter through the turns and on rough roads. The Custom model added convenience items like a horn ring, two sun visors, door-panel armrests and a locking glove-compartment door. The 1950 Ford was one of America’s most popular models with more than 1.2 million produced. Of those, just more than 50,000—or about 4 percent—were Custom V-8 convertibles like the one purchased new by Robert Fischbeck.
S37 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 20867S114156 $65,000.00 $85,000.00 $56,100 €48,450 -14% White over Red. Chevrolet saved the best for last when it equipped this first-generation Corvette with a next-generation 327 CI small-block V-8 mated to a 4-speed manual transmission that was good for a 20 HP performance bump over the outgoing 283 CI V-8. More than five decades after it left the factory, this Corvette underwent a body-on restoration in 2016. With its signature Ermine White over red interior color combination, it was among the last of its kind produced and combines race-proven first-generation performance all in one refined design. The original matching-numbers 327 CI V-8 was factory rated for 250 HP at 4,400 RPM with a single Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetor and is backed by the optional extra-cost 4-speed manual transmission. The Delco-Remy generator and Harrison overflow tank join upgraded 7-fin cast-aluminum valve covers for underhood style. The factory dual exhaust flows power and sound that is an unmistakable Corvette signature. Refined suspension and brakes work with Goodyear narrow-band white-stripe bias-ply tires mounted on 15-inch wheels dressed with two-bar spinner wheel covers for race-engineered road control. Styling Chief Bill Mitchell brought Stingray racer-inspired design to the final years of the first-generation Corvettes. The rear ducktail was the shape of things to come, and 1962 marked the return of the single-color exteriors for the first time since the 1955 Corvette. A blackout anodized-aluminum grille, simplified side styling and aluminum rockers added modern refinement for the 1960s. Lowering the white soft top or removing the auxiliary hardtop reveals a well-appointed two-place red interior with competition-type steering wheel and all-vinyl bucket seats over loop carpet. The optional transistorized signal-seeking Wonderbar AM radio automatically tunes in 1962 hits like “The Loco-Motion” by Little Eva or “The Twist” by Chubby Checker.

S39 1963 Volkswagen Samba Bus 23 Window 1066658 $150,000.00 $170,000.00 $170,500 €147,249 1% LS3 Sealing Wax Red over L472 Beige Grey. More than 50 years after it rolled off the assembly line in Germany, this 1963 Volkswagen 23-Window Samba Bus underwent a comprehensive restoration and faithful return to its original top spot in the versatile Transporter lineup. No expense was spared in a comprehensive nut-and-bolt restoration process that was completed in July of 2018 under the watchful and experienced eye of a noted marque expert. The rare 7-passenger center walkthrough body was placed on a rotisserie, reconditioned back to 1963 specifications and painted into its factory-issue two-tone red and sand paint scheme from roof to bumpers. Volkswagen designers and engineers envisioned a van purpose-built for taking in scenic vistas from mountain passes to ocean sunsets, and as such, the Samba was outfitted with glare-absorbing skylights and side glass for scenic views from every seat and several other deluxe appointments. The new fabric sunroof opens for air and light into the cabin that was brought back to its early-‘60s condition with new interior panels, seat cover materials, carpet and textured rubber flooring. An abundance of windows and new-for-1963 in-roof fresh-air ventilation system deliver a light and spacious feeling even with the sunroof closed. The venerable 1500cc flat-4 engine is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Independent torsion bar front and rear suspension and 4-wheel drum brakes make for competent handling and road control from the forward-control rear-engined van. The throwback Samba is ready to endure another generation of adventure that can ranged from arid desert sunsets to lush concours greens. Rolling on body color-keyed steel wheels with whitewall tires and chrome-plated VW logo hubcaps, this one looks just right.
S40 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 1G1Y52D93K5800007 $160,000.00 $200,000.00 $176,000 €151,999 Mid Orange over Grey. It’s the fastest, most powerful Corvette in history; it boasts 755 HP and can reach speeds that genuinely necessitate the gigantic wing perched on the rear deck. It’s the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, and it is everything a hardcore Corvette enthusiast really wants. Barely touched at just 29 miles, this 2019 Corvette ZR1 Coupe is one of an estimated 2,000 slated for production in 2019, and it is practically guaranteed that all 2,000 will quickly sell out. The C4 ZR1 was noted for its incredibly expensive Lotus-designed 32-valve V-8, and the C6 ZR1 was the first supercharged production Corvette, its athletic bodywork sporting a carbon-fiber hood, fenders and roof. What distinguishes the 2019 ZR1 is more than its monstrous power output, although the engine was the starting point for Corvette Engineering, which specified a stronger crankshaft, a 2.7L Eaton supercharger (versus the Z06’s 1.7L unit) and improved overall cooling. The 6.2L, dry-sump LT5 engine’s 755 HP is matched by 715 lb-ft of torque, in this case delivered through an 8-speed automatic transmission to an electronic limited-slip differential. Built on a hydroformed aluminum chassis, the ZR1’s all-independent wishbone suspension performs handling feats of magic with input from Magnetic Selective Ride Control, five-mode Performance Traction Management and massive Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes. The ZTK Track Performance Package adds a stiffer chassis, unique suspension tuning and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires on special carbon flash-painted aluminum wheels. The ZR1’s optional high-mounted carbon fiber adjustable rear wing and carbon-fiber front splitter end caps add significant downforce at speed, helping to account for the incredible road holding at its 212 MPH top speed. The new owner of this early production ZR1 will also enjoy the exclusive Sebring Orange Design Package that includes orange brake calipers, rocker and splitter accent stripes, seatbelts and interior stitching, as well as exclusive bronze aluminum interior trim. Simply put, this is the most powerful Corvette ever built … for now.
S42 1930 Lincoln L Series Sport Phaeton 60257 $100,000.00 $120,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Brown leather. Cadillac Co-Founder Henry Leland became dissatisfied with the direction of the famed luxury brand that he helped create and so, in 1917, he left to form a new luxury-car manufacturer, Lincoln. Lincoln’s first offering was known as the L Series and was designed by Leland’s son-in-law Angus Woodbridge—who oddly enough had previously worked as a hatmaker—as a more affordable luxury car to its rival, the Cadillac. However, persistent financial troubles during the post-World War I recession forced Leland to soon sell Lincoln to Henry Ford in 1922. Ford put his son Edsel in charge of the Lincoln brand, and under Edsel’s stewardship, the L Series was continually refined and improved over the subsequent eight years of its production. Powered by a 60-degree L-head V-8, the later L Series incorporated a long 136-inch chassis that lent itself to receiving a wide variety of standard or custom coachwork. By the end of its production run in 1930, the L Series could be purchased as a Roadster, a two-, three- or four-window sedan, a four-passenger Phaeton (open top, convertible), or even as a seven-passenger touring sedan/limousine. This black paint on brown leather example is a four-passenger Sport Phaeton manufactured during the final year of L Series production in 1930. A now rare example, this Sport Phaeton features the later 384 CI flathead V-8 with thermostatically controlled louvers to regulate the flow of air through the radiator grille, which is capped with the iconic Lincoln greyhound mascot. Pushing 90 HP through a 3-speed manual transmission, this Sport Phaeton also features dual side-mounted spare wheels, dual cowl lamps, rear-mounted trunk with fitted luggage, and a set of side curtains. This lot marks a unique opportunity to acquire an example of the pinnacle of Lincoln’s first luxury-car offering.
S43 1969 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser FJ40-67128 $65,000.00 $85,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Freeborn Red over Black. Mr. Wilbur A. Hanson purchased this very rare 1969 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ-40 (L) Factory Soft Top new on August 5, 1969, at the famous Con-Ferr Toyota of Burbank, California. It remained in his possession for use at the Hanson family’s vacation cabin at Shaver Lake near Fresno, California, for almost 46 years, only being sold by the Hanson family after Wilbur’s passing. More importantly, this original California FJ-40 Soft Top has just 29,000 original miles and is in impressive unrestored condition, still wearing its original Freeborn Red paint and California Black Plates. When new, Mr. Hanson had Con-Ferr install its “C-F” single-hoop roll bar and Warn locking front hubs, both items that remain on the truck today and are referenced on the original purchase contract. Power is supplied by its original 3.9L F-Series inline-6 mated to its original 3-speed manual gearbox. Since leaving the Hanson’s family care, comprehensive maintenance has been performed, insuring this FJ-40 FST runs and drives just as an extremely low-mileage unrestored original Land Cruiser should. Documentation includes the original Con-Ferr sales invoice from August 1969 (original purchase price of $3,000 including tax, title, license, roll bar and Warn hubs with $500 down and $2,500 financed by the Bank of Tokyo), the original Toyota Motor Company “Packing List” (build sheet), as well as the original Owner’s Manual, Service Booklet and even the one-page original Toyota Motor Company vehicle warranty certificate. Also included is the original showroom brochure that Mr. Hanson saved featuring a Freeborn Red 1969 FJ-40 Soft Top. The original toolkit and jack are also present, along with numerous service records for the vehicle. Mr. Hanson’s beloved FJ-40 L Factory Soft Top could very well be the finest unrestored example in existence, not to mention perhaps the lowest-mileage one as well. Add to that nearly 50 years in the original owner’s care and it is certainly easy to see why this is a rare opportunity to acquire a clearly special example of one of the most sought-after FJ-40 models of all time.
S44 1954 Chevrolet Custom Convertible C54F09447 $55,000.00 $65,000.00 $55,000 €47,500 Mid White and Red over Red and White. If this 1954 Chevrolet Custom Convertible looks vaguely familiar, it is because its inspiration was the noteworthy original custom “Moonglow,” created by Duane Steck in the 1950s and featured on the cover of “Car Craft” magazine in January of 1957. When the late Gordon Apker of Iowa desired to create a ’54 Chevrolet to a similar configuration, he relied extensively on the unique changes that had made the original Moonglow so stunning. As a result, that car became the template, and Apker’s effort features similarly Frenched headlights and Frenched 1956 Chrysler tail lights, a lowered rear bumper and a dramatically modified grille with extra teeth, changes that made the Moonglow a standout. The door handles, hood and decklid trim were created just as was seen on the original custom as well, and the more recent car was also refinished in white paint with light chrome side accent trim and a wider red spear dramatically streaking across the rear quarters, which feature fender skirts. Most notable on this convertible is the dramatic chop of the windshield frame, exuding the true sense of the customizing hobby from more than a half-century ago. Under the hood is a dependable straight-6 engine customized with Offenhauser components, polished and painted to match the body, feeding into a twin-pipe exhaust system with chrome extensions. The engine is equipped with dual carburetors and mated to a Powerglide automatic transmission. Suspension changes included dropped spindles in the front, and the entire body was lowered from its stock height. Well-configured inside, this car has red and white custom upholstery, redesigned door-panel coverings, pushbutton radio, chrome dash trim, a factory-style gauge panel and detailing throughout. There is a custom-fitted top boot as well. With wide whitewall tires and chrome full-size wheel covers, the impression left by this car from any angle is one that demands appreciation and respect. The work is done, so all this tribute to Moonglow requires is a new owner who truly admires it.
S45 1929 Ford Model A Wagon A1701707 $50,000.00 $60,000.00 $48,400 €41,800 -3% Cream and wood over Blue. Benefiting from a frame-up, nut-and-bolt restoration, this 1929 Ford Model A is ready to ferry the family to dinner and ice cream or impress at a car show. Highly detailed inside and out, this Model A looks like it just rolled out of the factory, its undercarriage looking just as sharp as the rest of the car. Powered by the 200/40 HP inline 4-cylinder engine, finding an early depot hack, or station wagon, depending upon who you’re talking to, in this condition is definitely something special. Built with a combination of Clear Birch and Clear Maple woods, with the iconic “birdseye” grain pattern evident in the Maple wood, the two types of wood lend a subtle depth and difference to the overall coloring of the Model A. Black running boards, wire wheels and assorted details contrast with the tan hood, cowl and windshield surround, all matching the light-colored wood very nicely. Inside, the tan dashboard looks right at home, offsetting the brown seat upholstery, black appointments and wooden surfaces. Equipped with side curtains, sun visor, pop-out front windshield, third-row seating and a side-mounted spare tire, this Model A rolls on beautiful whitewall tires completing the classic look. Known early on as a depot hack, the name originated from hackney, a horse-drawn buggy for hire, normally found at train depots and ship ports. Hackneys would shuttle people from the train or ship normally to a hotel in town, but could often be stationed outside a hotel or restaurant ready to transport passengers to other locations such as the theater. Notice how taxi drivers have a hack license today, it all dates back to the 1600s when the hackney came about. Over time, the name evolved from depot hack to station wagon, again, simply denoting a wagon to carry people and luggage from a train station to a local destination.
S45.1 1940 Packard Super 8 Convertible Sedan 13772130 $125,000.00 $140,000.00 $148,500 €128,249 6% Yellow over Tan leather. Billy Wilder (1), AACA award winner.
S46 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible 16842896 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Light Patriot Blue over Blue and White. General Motors’ Motorama tour provided a dazzling display of technological innovation that highlighted a multitude of stunning automotive concepts. Buick’s Skylark displayed many trendsetting features, including a new OHV 322 CI V-8 engine, 12-volt electrical system, fully radiused rear wheel openings, Kelsey-Hayes 40-spoke wire wheels and stylish “Sweepspear” chrome body accents that would find their way into future Buick models. By lowering the top and seat height, designers gave the Skylark a low, sporty look and an overall height of just 5 feet. The low-slung Buick did not just look the part; it came equipped with luxurious amenities to match its sporty exterior: power steering and brakes, power windows, seat and antenna, Selectronic signal-seeking radio, pleated leather upholstery and a power-operated top. Only 1,690 Skylarks were produced in 1953. The 1953 Skylark presented here was treated to a complete professional restoration benefiting from knowledgeable ownership and thorough maintenance in a noted private collection. It remains an excellent example, finished in Light Patriot Blue and beautifully accented by superb brightwork and a set of chromed Kelsey-Hayes 40-spoke wire wheels. The inviting interior is trimmed in two-tone blue and white leather upholstery. The matching dash, steering wheel and controls are likewise correct, attractive and very well-maintained for a great presentation. This certified milestone car remains in excellent overall condition. From its handsome grille to its trendsetting and curvaceous body lines, this 1953 Skylark is a classic American luxury convertible with the engineering and amenities to match its commanding presence, and the distinction of being one of a very limited few produced in that vintage year.
S47 2006 Hummer H1 Alpha 137PH90316E220607 $200,000.00 $240,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Yellow over Black and Tan. Originally designed for military use, the AM General-built Hummer was released to the civilian market in 1992 due to demand. In 1999, General Motors bought marketing rights to the Hummer name and called it the Hummer H1. GM also began marketing the Hummer H2 that was assembled by AM General on a modified GMC chassis. AM General continued to build the H1 and Humvee in Mishawaka, Indiana. GM stopped marketing the H1 in 2006, and AM General then continued making military Humvees. The H1 gained notoriety through Operation Desert Storm and celebrity owners like Arnold Schwarzenegger. It came as an open-top, four-door hardtop and Alpha Wagon. The H1 is inherently stable due to its wide track; it can ford water and climb a 22-inch step. It has 16-inch ground clearance due to its driveline being inside a channel between the seats. Most H1s feature Central Tire Inflation. The Hummer H1 shares brakes, axles, frame and major body panels with the HMMWV. Both were produced on the same assembly line, but civilian H1s were painted and finished in a separate building. The Alpha is a re-engineered H1 using GM’s 6.6L/300 HP Duramax Turbo Diesel and 5-speed Allison automatic overdrive transmission. Production ran from early 2005 thru mid-2006, though all Alphas have the 10th VIN symbol as a 6 for 2006, and the program was canceled when GM decided to withdraw technical and financial support for engineering and recertification, ending 2006 production at 729 examples. This rare open-top Alpha shows just 3,841 original miles. It is yellow with black and tan leather upholstery, and it features air conditioning, power windows, steering and brakes, a Monsoon stereo system, a black brush bar and fender flares, a bumper-mounted winch, a removable soft top and gloss black Fuel Contra off-road wheels.
S48 1958 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster 121.042-7502362 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Black. This sporting bright red Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster with a black interior has an arresting and timeless presence. Driving pleasure is ensured by the torquey 1.9L inline-4 cylinder engine, two 2-barrel side-draft Solex carburetors, 4-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, rear swing axle with coil springs and power-assisted hydraulic drum brakes, all of which contribute for fun outings in Mercedes-Benz style. Additional features of this example include a black fabric convertible folding top, VDO instrument gauges, radio-delete plate, power door locks, chrome bumper guards and driver’s-door mirror, color-matched steel wheels with chrome trim rings plus hubcaps with coordinating red centers combined with radial tires. Note that even though the factory labels the 190SL as a Roadster, it does have convenient roll-up side windows. United States East Coast Mercedes-Benz importer Max Hoffman desired a sports car to bring interest to the full line of German cars. He had great influence with the manufacturer who wished to expand sales to North America, and Mercedes-Benz listened to his suggestions to develop sports cars for the North American car market. The 190SL model (factory designation W121) debuted at the 1954 New York Auto Show with many design characteristics of the more expensive 300SL. The 190SL was built at the Stuttgart Germany factory from 1955-1963. Mercedes-Benz of this period are incredibly well engineered and constructed. Period road tests regularly report comfortable cruising speeds of 80 MPH with the single-overhead-camshaft engine that was designed for continuous 6,000 RPM usage on the German Autobahn. City driving is also easy with the flexible drivetrain being able to pull from 650 RPM in high gear. The honored 190SL Roadster holds all of the characteristics for a fine-driving classic two-seat Mercedes-Benz that would be a valued addition to any car collection.
S48.1 2003 Ferrari Enzo 131240 $2,900,000.00 $3,100,000.00 $2,860,000 €2,469,988 -1% Rosso Corsa over Nero leather. The Ferrari Enzo will forever be considered a street-legal road car with the soul of a Formula 1 race car. One of 399 examples produced, this 2003 Enzo has only 3,150 original miles and is offered with Ferrari Classiche certification—the ultimate validation of its rarity and provenance. The direct transference of Formula 1 race technology was bestowed upon the Enzo throughout its entire design. The 6.0L 65-degree V-12 was a new “Enzo-only” engine that produced 660 HP. The paddle-shifted transmission is transplanted from its Formula 1 race car. Its center-section monocoque frame is constructed of carbon-fiber and honeycomb aluminum providing an ultra-light yet extremely rigid platform. The body was shaped in the wind tunnel with the sole objective of meeting the sweet spot of low aerodynamic drag combined with maximum downforce. The underside panels of the chassis were shaped in accordance with the latest principles of “ground-effects,” enabling the bottom surface of the car to effectively scavenge airflow to create suction. The carbon-ceramic brakes are a first for a Ferrari road car and developed on the Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 cars. The body shape was pure and uncompromised functional form—a Formula 1-inspired nose cone and center section with integrated fenders to encapsulate the overall structure and direct air-cooling to the engine, radiator and brakes. It is historically significant to remember that the Enzo comes from an era of Ferrari dominance in Formula 1 with five world championships, earned in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004 with driver Michael Schumacher behind the wheel. In addition to completing development work on the Enzo, he also designed the steering wheel that placed the critical operating controls in the center hub. The Enzo is a supercar that successfully blended Formula 1 technology into a modern road car and remains to this day an icon of the Ferrari stable.
S49 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR Coupe 1B3JZ69Z88V201319 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Very Viper Orange Pearl over Black and Slate Grey suede. The 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR marked the return of the American Club Racer after a 6-year absence. It’s one of only two produced in Very Viper Orange Pearl with a black-over-slate gray suede and leather interior, and this street-legal race car has logged just 27 miles and retains its original dealer protective plastic, warning labels, and the window sticker is still affixed. The ACR was factory equipped with the $12,050 Competition Group package that includes front and rear spoilers, competition suspension, ACR badge, two-tone black center band, fog-lamp delete and forged-alloy Sidewinder wheels. Dodge Street and Racing Technology, or SRT, outfitted the 8.4L SFI V-10 with larger oil pump with special swinging pickup designed to maintain oil pressure under heavy lateral force. The car’s 600 HP and 560 lb-ft of torque backed up by a 6-speed manual transmission with twin-disc clutch and speed-sensing anti-spin limited-slip differential was deemed more than adequate power, and the SRT team focused their knowledge on weight reduction, race-tuned suspension and a suite of functional aerodynamic elements. The carbon-fiber front splitter, front canards and adjustable rear wing are capable of creating more than 1,000 pounds of downforce at 150 MPH with a 45-to-55 front-to-rear percentage split. Power rack-and-pinion steering, aluminum control arms, adjustable KW Suspension coilovers with two-way damping and forged Sidewinder wheels fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup DOT-approved street-legal Ultra High Performance compound race tires deliver maximum control. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes with StopTech two-piece competition slotted rotors scrub off velocity. The Viper SRT-10 ACR could launch from 0-60 MPH in less than 4 seconds, hold over 2.0 g on the skidpad and boasts a top speed in excess of 200 MPH. A track-day weapon that can still pass the muster as a street car, the SRT-10 ACR is one hardcore ride.
S50 1932 Willlys Overland 6-90 Roadster 6908610 $90,000.00 $120,000.00 $121,000 €104,499 1% Royal Blue and Black over Grey vinyl. According to the Willys Registry, of the 550 Willys Overland 6-90 Silver Streak Rumble Seat Roadsters that were built in 1932, only seven are still known to exist. This one has benefited from an extensive frame-off restoration to period-correct specification and presents fantastically in Royal Blue with black fenders and a black convertible top. The whitewall tires and mustard-colored wire wheels work with the minimal brightwork to lighten up the overall look, adding some ‘pop’ to an otherwise subdued appearance. Fed by a single, updraft carburetor, the 65 HP, 193 CI inline 6-cylinder L-Head engine was promoted as the, “100,000 Mile Silver Streak Motor,” advertised to meet, “every test of quality and thrift.” Ranking among the more reasonably priced 6-cylinder roadsters available at nearly $550, it was the first year to feature the technologically advanced Warner-Gear synchronized 3-speed manual transmission with a floor-mounted shifter. The interior features a body-colored dashboard, the original steering wheel with mounted horn and starter switch, and gray carpeting and vinyl upholstery. The jewel-like gauges and switchgear are exquisite against the dark-blue landscape of the dashboard, and overall, attention to detail is omnipresent. Well equipped, this 6-90 features a single, vacuum-operated windshield wiper on a two-way folding windshield, 4-wheel mechanical drum brakes, a single auxiliary fog light with an amber lens, a chrome horn, a single vent mounted atop the cowl, a single driver-side-mounted post-style mirror, dual wind wings and a rear-mounted spare tire. Considering all the equipment and the 6-cylinder engine, the Silver Streak 6-90 Roadster offered a lot for the money. The rumble seat is accessible via cast-aluminum fender-mounted steps, one on the cast-aluminum rear bumper, the other atop the fender—both on the sidewalk side of the car, of course. Having traveled less than 100 miles since completion of the restoration, this car will be sold with the original owner’s manual and preliminary parts manual.
S51 1957 Porsche 356 Coupe 101465 $175,000.00 $200,000.00 $154,000 €132,999 -12% Factory Black over Red. This 1957 Porsche 356 Sunroof Coupe sports a matching-numbers 1600cc engine and has been treated to a nut-and-bolt restoration by marque expert Vince Bobba. Presented in the factory-correct color scheme of black with a red interior, the body was taken down to bare metal and the unibody tub was fitted with new floors, longitudinals and jack receivers. Paintwork on this machine is immaculate with proper gaps and panel alignment. Autos International completed the interior restoration, which features red leather seating and side panels with period-correct stitching, oatmeal-colored German square-weave carpet and a white perforated headliner. The engine has been rebuilt in accordance with factory specification, and the engine compartment is dressed accordingly with the proper Orange Oil Filter Cannister, rebuilt carburetors with the original air-filter housing, original cadmium-plated bolts and powder-coated engine shrouding, and sheet metal. The transaxle has been refurbished as well. Brightwork on the car—square door handles, chrome trim, door trim, headlight rings, quarter window surround frames, directional-signal housings and rear tail-light chrome trim—was restored and rechromed to near jewel-like standards by the highly regarded Victor Miles. Even the wheels have been rechromed and mounted on 165/15 Vredestein tires. By 1957, Porsche was a small company producing a mere 25 cars per day. The Reutter Karosserie built the 356 bodies in the factory right alongside the Porsche Werks. During this era, Porsche forged a well-deserved reputation for world-class design, construction, performance, reliability and durability that continues unabated to this day. This 356 Sunroof Coupe emerged from the gates of Stuttgart during this period when Porsche cars were largely hand-built using time-honored methods of construction. It’s only fitting that this fabulous car has been restored in current time by a select cadre of 356 restoration artisans.
S52 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster 113.044-10-015074 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 $88,000 €76,000 -12% Red over Tan leather. The well-mannered W113 Mercedes-Benz not only challenged perceptions of what a sports car should be, it was instrumental in changing them, a civilizing influence on an industry entrenched in medieval machismo. The keynote of the styling by forward-thinking Frenchman Paul Bracq is subtle restraint. Options of automatic transmission and power-steering had sports-car fundamentalists choking in their cravats; yet it turns out this was the way to go, as Aston, Jaguar and Ferrari eventually realized. Then there was the superb removable Pagoda hardtop—so named because of its lipped profile—which sealed out the elements and cocooned the driver in true coupe comfort. With the launch of the initial version in 1963, British auto magazine “The Motor” summed it up well: “It is this combination of virtues that make the 230SL so notable … speed, handling, comfort, finish and prestige in one beautiful package.” Indeed, the Pagoda SL was conceived under the guidance of Rudi Uhlenhaut, mastermind of Mercedes-Benz’s swashbuckling raid on motorsports in the 1950s, who insisted the new SL delivered on the road. The 1963 victory in the car-breaking Spa-Sofia-Liege rally underlined this, along with the strength and integrity of its monocoque and mechanicals. The last-of-line 280SL, with all-around disc brakes, proved most popular of all, and fastest; with 170 HP from the 2778cc single-overhead-cam straight-6, road testers achieved 125 MPH in the faster manual version. That’s what we have here: a 4-speed 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL in dashing red with a black hardtop, matching black hubcaps and chrome bumpers, riding on radial tires. The specification includes power steering, under-dash air-conditioning, Becker Europa radio, VDO gauges and dash clock. The 280SL is both city slick on the one hand and out of town a drive-all-day sporting GT rather than a point-and-hurt bone-jarring roller skate. Now, consider this; in its day, the 280SL was more than twice the price of a Jaguar E-Type and only a few dollars shy of an Aston Martin DB6.
S53 1970 Porsche GTO Judge 242370P160448 $65,000.00 $75,000.00 $66,000 €57,000 Mid Black over Red vinyl. What could be cooler than an authentic black-on-red 4-speed 1970 Ram Air III GTO Judge? How about one that was owned for 40 years by none other than Pontiac racer Arnie “The Farmer” Beswick? From 1969 to 2009, this fantastic vehicle was owned by perhaps the most famous Pontiac racer of all time, whose career spanned from the mid-1950s though the early 21st century. Complete with documentation from Pontiac Historical Services, this GTO was first part of the Zeb Morris Collection from 2009-2011 after Beswick’s caretaking had finished, and it has been with its current owner since 2011. The Judge was initiated as the Great One’s answer to the taxi-cab-like Plymouth Road Runner, but this judiciary ruling ended up being more like an upscale custom street machine by the time the company had finished up the list of standard equipment. This car came from the factory in stunning black with a bright red interior. It features the special Judge decals and striping, the spoiler package, the body-color Enduro front bumper and the hood with scallop scoop design, outside-mounted tachometer and RAM AIR callouts. Underneath that is a Ram Air III 400/366 HP engine with the foam hood-to-engine seal and factory chrome valve covers, backed with a 4-speed transmission featuring a Hurst T-handle shifter. Inside are red vinyl bucket seats with a center console, an in-dash clock, AM radio and Rally gauges. Of course, the set of 5-spoke 14×6-inch Rally II wheels with Goodyear Polyglas white-letter tires complete the appearance of raw American power. Sold new in Prophetstown, Illinois, this sale will include letters of correspondence between the current owner and Mr. Beswick, and the finishing touch here would be custom script on the rear spoiler which states, “special thanks to…Arnie The Farmer Beswick (Grandpa).”
S54 1954 Morgan Plus 4 Roadster P3069 $60,000.00 $70,000.00 $51,700 €44,650 -14% White over Black. The British are proud self-proclaimed die-hard traditionalists, and Morgan automobiles are the quintessential manifestation of this ethos. This 1954 Morgan Plus 4 Roadster represents a very narrow and significant chapter in the history of the marque—it is one of the preciously rare “interim cowl” models built for the 1954 model. The Plus 4 moniker means this Morgan is powered by a 1991cc inline 4-cylinder engine from the Triumph TR2. The powerplant helps deliver a quantum leap in power over the previous Standard Vanguard engine. Morgan introduced the new waterfall curved grille that replaced the traditional flat-radiator for 1954, and then went a step further by integrating the headlights into the front fenders as opposed to being mounted on a horizontal spreader bar. Not wanting to progress too quickly, Morgan retained the dual spare tires placed upright at the tail end of the vehicle. Originally constructors of three-wheeled motorcycles with coach-built bodies, Morgan started crafting four-wheel automobiles in 1936, and its subsequent lineage of cars have remained largely unchanged from their grass-roots origins. Morgans have always been built using old-world methods and technology, featuring an upper cowl super-structure of wooden construction placed on top of a steel ladder chassis and fitted with drivetrains sourced from various manufacturers such as Triumph, Ford and Coventry Climax. According to John Worrall and Liz Turner—authors of the reference book “Original Morgan”—there were only 19 “interim cowl” models built before a new revised and finalized design was implemented that featured front headlights raised approximately 3-inches higher with a single spare tire positioned on an angle to match the sloping rear of the car. Presented in Old English White with a black leather interior and a hand-hewn English Walnut wooden dashboard and steering wheel, this rare “interim-cowl” Plus 4 Roadster played an important role in history by bridging the gap between the old-school flat-radiator model and the updated waterfall Morgan. via Mecum Monterey ’17 Not sold $60 – 75k
S55 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster 113.044-12-008712 $85,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue over Blue leather. Nearly a decade after it had stunned the world with the original 300SL, Mercedes-Benz faced the daunting task of replacing the world’s first supercar. Instead of constructing another pure sports car, with performance as the ultimate goal, Mercedes decided to turn the SL quest in a different direction, designing and developing an entirely new car built upon a steel monocoque unibody that emphasized comfort and convenience over outright speed. Internally designated as the W113, this distinctive new design featured styling with softened, crisp edges and a mildly concaved roof that earned it the nickname of the “Pagoda” SL. Based on the company’s 220S sedan, the 230SL initially hit the road in 1963 and would be continuously developed as a luxurious grand-touring machine over the course of the following eight years. As part of that development, and in response to tightening emissions regulations in the U.S., its original 2306cc/150 HP four-main-bearing, inline-6 engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection was ultimately superseded, in 1967, by a similar 2778cc unit providing 20 additional horses, resulting in its re-designation as the 280SL. Beneath the new styling could be found essentially the same suspension system as on the 300SLs, with unequal-length double wishbones, coil springs and tubular shock absorbers in the front, and a three-spring, single-pivot swing-axle arrangement in the rear. The more luxurious interior featured extra headroom and improved visibility (due to the Pagoda roof), a leather-covered dashboard, adjustable wraparound seats and individual vent controls, while the instrument panel featured a large VDO speedometer and tachometer with the secondary gauges clustered vertically between them. The example on offer is a 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL finished in blue with a blue leather interior, and it is powered by the later 2.8L inline 6-cylinder engine transmitting its power through an automatic transmission. Other premium features include power steering and brakes, chrome bumpers and guards, full-sized wheel covers, and a period Becker Grand Prix radio.
S56 1974 Ferrari 246GTS 08070 $450,000.00 $550,000.00 $467,500 €403,748 Mid Violo Metallizzato over Nero leather. By the late 1960s, Fiat had taken a 50-percent ownership position in Ferrari. In addition to the increased capital to fund his racing efforts, this relationship also opened the door for Enzo Ferrari to create and market a more “affordable” sports car to challenge the growing popularity of the Porsche 911. This new Porsche challenger would be a midengine sports car that would carry a smaller V-6 that could be shared with other models in the Fiat family. Since this V-6 engine was adapted by Aurelio Lampredi from an earlier racing engine championed by Ferrari’s deceased son Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari, this new model of car would also bear the Dino name. First debuted as a Pininfarina concept at the 1965 Paris Motor Show, the first production Dinos of 1968 were penned by famed Pininfarina designer Leonardo Fioravanti and featured 2.0L DOHC V-6 engines, but were soon replaced with 2.4L engines (in 1969) breathing through three Weber downdraft carburetors and mated to a 5-speed transaxle integrated into the transversely mounted engine. In this later 246 form, the curvaceous Dino featured an all-steel body constructed by Scaglietti in either a GT coupe or targa-top GTS configuration. The Dino broke much new ground for Ferrari in that it represented Ferrari’s first midengine production car, its first non-V-12 production car, first production car with electronic ignition (the Dinoplex capacitive discharge system developed by Magneti Marelli) and the first production Ferrari to feature direct rack-and-pinion steering, similar to that used on its racing cars. The example on offer is one of only 313 Ferrari 246 GTS Dinos made during the final year of production in 1974. Delivered new from the factory resplendent in very rare Violo Metallizato with a black interior to Bill Harrah’s famed Modern Classic Motors, in Reno, Nevada, this Dino has undergone a meticulous nut-and-bolt restoration.
S57 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo 930 680 0236 $140,000.00 $160,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Black leather. The OPEC oil-production boycott of 1973 convinced many that driving or even building a high-performance car was irresponsible in a world with choked fuel supplies. While that social pressure was enough to deter several manufacturers, Porsche continued development of what would be its most powerful and luxurious car yet, the 930 Turbo. Available only in coupe form, the finished car was a masterwork of engineering involving far more consideration of performance and durability than was obvious to the naked eye. The U.S.-spec 3.0L flat-6 engine developed 234 HP at 5,500 RPM, but it could rev to 6,800 RPM and was virtually bulletproof. Porsche also developed a new stronger 4-speed transaxle and single-disc clutch for both the production and future racing Turbos. The rear hubs, bearings and suspension arms were also designed as much for racing Porsches as for the 930, and were derived from the legendary 917. Suspension geometry, vented disc brakes and damping were drawn from the Carrera RS and RSR, and so of course were the Turbo’s dramatically flared fenders and prominent whale-tail spoiler, but inside was the most luxury ever poured into a Porsche: leather upholstery, air conditioning, deep-cut pile carpeting and Porsche’s trademark driver-friendly controls and instrumentation. This fabulous 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo is one of 530 produced for the U.S. market. It is in superb condition after a documented restoration completed at an investment of more than $50,000. Its restoration included a bare-metal repaint in the original black and a rebuild of the 3.0L engine. In addition to the Turbo-spec Fuchs wheels with Kumho radial tires, it offers halogen headlights, well-bolstered leather Sport seats, an electric sunroof and power windows. Documentation includes restoration receipts and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
S58 1930 Marmon Big Eight Sports Coupe H111559 $180,000.00 $200,000.00 $159,500 €137,749 -11% Tri-tone Green over Green. With only a few examples known to exist today, this Marmon Big Eight Sport Coupe earned Best in Class at the Lime Rock Park 35th Annual Historic Festival. Powered by the legendary 125 HP, 315 CI Straight-8 engine with high-compression head, double-dome combustion chamber, Stromberg updraft carburetor and a rare 4-speed manual transmission, it’s clear why Marmons were so well respected for performance, among other attributes. Founded by Howard C. Marmon in Indianapolis, the Marmon automobile asserted itself easily as an upscale rival to brands like Packard, Cadillac, Chrysler and Lincoln, to name a few. Marmon automobiles were known as being reliable, well-built, expensive and exceedingly fast as well as being the only autos that could rightly claim to have won the inaugural Indianapolis 500. This Big Eight Sports Coupe uses a body designed and built by Baker, Rauch & Lang, known as a Raulang Body, sprung on a chassis using semi-elliptical springs front and rear as well as innovative Bendix mechanical brakes, lending more safety and cache to the many technological advancements that made Marmon such a prized vehicle. Presented in a unique tri-tone green exterior with color-matched wire wheels wrapped in blackwall tires, an auxiliary steel trunk provides a bit more storage for longer journeys. Fender-mounted steps deliver access to the rumble seat, while scalloped door and rear-quarter bottom-edge body lines flow into the curved “A” pillar, providing a natural visor above the outward-folding windshield. Dual side-mounted spare tires are enclosed in a metal cover with mirrors atop each, and twin fender-mounted parking lights add a touch of elegance and safety. A luxurious green interior pampers passengers with dual cowl-mounted exterior vents, the original steering-wheel-mounted horn and starter switch, period-correct silk window shades with double-sided printed design, a roll-down rear window, black walnut dashboard and door trim, plaid green wilting carpeting in both the cabin and rumble-seat areas, twin tinted-glass interior sun visors and gauges set in a decorative and a multi-surface metal surround, which matches the period-correct under-dash Art Deco heater.
S59 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster 113.044-12-017384 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Black MB-tex. Perhaps no single car manufacturer has mastered the art of understated elegance better than Mercedes-Benz. It doesn’t get much better than this U.S.-specification 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster that just happens to exude those qualities in abundance. The car presents beautifully in red contrasted with a black interior. The inside is appointed in correct Mercedes Benz Black MB-Tex grained material and the carpet is the correct two-tone gray-colored loop-pile variety. The 280SL has always been held in high regard within the collector-car market for its tasteful and Teutonic build quality and appearance. Additionally, the Mercedes-Benz drivetrain of this era has the well-deserved reputation for reliability and longevity with easy access to an available parts network. The W113 series of Mercedes Benz were first introduced in 1963 and experienced an eight-year production run that expired in model-year 1971. The W113 set new safety standards for the automotive industry with its rigid center section protecting the occupants in conjunction with designated crush zones in the front and rear to absorb impact. Likewise, the styling under the direction of Paul Bracq set a new design language for Mercedes-Benz with crisp lines, a concave “Pagoda Top” and upright headlights replacing the rounded curves of its predecessor 190SL and 300SL brethren, and a tall glass greenhouse providing an all-encompassing panoramic view. By 1970, the end of production was fast approaching for the 280SL and represents the third iteration of the W113 model—considered to be the most refined and developed of the lineage with its 2.8L inline 6-cylinder engine producing 180 HP, direct fuel injection and 4-wheel disc brakes. This car is equipped with a host of desirable options that include a floor-shifted automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, a Becker Europa AM/FM radio, a matching color-keyed hardtop, narrow-band white side-wall radial tires and chrome bumper guards.
S60 1959 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible 859W1018 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 $61,600 €53,200 -23% Red and White over Sunset Glow. The advertisement proclaimed, “Who in the world built this beauty? Pontiac!” That was because GM had taken on a major reworking of its platform designs for 1959, and Pontiac’s leader was the legendary Bonneville. The first year of the big-inch/Wide Track machines, this example is also the top-of-the-line convertible, optioned with excellent appointments and a classic appearance. In the years leading up to 1959, Pontiac General Manager Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen and engineers led by Pete Estes and John DeLorean had aggressively moved Pontiac toward a performance image, and at the center of this was the increasing engine displacements each year starting in 1956. That had led to the Tempest 420 engine that arrived in 1959. The 389/345 HP Tri-Power V-8 engine here features three 2-barrel carbs under a dual-snorkel air cleaner. Pontiacs of 1959 further benefited from the optional 4-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, which this car has. Unlike the Catalina, the Bonneville rode on a longer 124-inch wheelbase, showing impressive size. Body styling had crisp fins that ended in a V-shape over the tail lamps, a thin chrome line that arced at the rear to end at the rear wheel house, and the split-grille with quad headlamps. Emblems state Tri-Power on the front quarter panels, and cast Bonneville-script logos are covered in bright gold-tone metallic. As always, Pontiac offered optional equipment to help market cars, but Bonnevilles came with many items as standard. This one is equipped with power steering and brakes. Inside one finds rare Tri-Tone Sunset Glow front bucket seats, complementary in tone to the body, and this car has a power-operated white convertible top and AM radio. With wide whitewall tires that match the white exterior and full-size chrome wheel covers, the look of 1950s enjoyment becomes complete. Today, 1959 Bonnevilles are not easy to find, let alone a convertible as attractive as this example.
S61 1946 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible 99A1227818 $35,000.00 $45,000.00 $29,700 €25,650 -15% Burgundy over Brown leather. For many buyers hungry for a new car following the conclusion of World War II, there was indeed “A Ford in Your Future,” as the period advertisements noted. Beginning production in the summer of 1945, Ford was the first company to release a reworked 1946 postwar model, and the company sold cars as fast as they could be built. Not many of them were as nicely optioned as this beautiful 1946 Super Deluxe Convertible. Only the wood-sided versions were more expensive, and this car was attractively optioned in a dual maroon color combination with a tan top. Under the hood for 1946 was Ford’s first production 100 HP flathead engine, a 239 CI V-8 based on the former Mercury-exclusive version, equipped here with dual exhaust. Backed by a 3-speed manual transmission, this Super Deluxe Convertible is cooled by a reconditioned and freshly painted radiator and sports new spark plugs, wires, hoses and a fuel pump. The red exterior is appointed with chrome trim and callouts that denote the name and engine, and this car also came with running lights, rear reverse light, deluxe bumperettes on both the front and rear, bumper guards and a driver’s side exterior mirror. For safety, turn signals are added. The Dark Camel color interior features a simulated woodgrain and red inlay dashboard. There is a spilt front bench seat, AM radio, under-dash heater, Super Deluxe passenger side in-dash clock and the especially desirable power convertible top. Adding style to this early postwar classic are wide whitewall tires and chrome wheels covers with the stamped Ford name lettered in red on steel wheels. At $1,488 new, the company constructed 16,369 of these cars out of a total of almost a half-million vehicles that model year, and examples today are not available often, especially in faithful factory configuration like this one. Coupled with its high level of luxury, attractive color combination and dependable driveline, this striking Super Deluxe Convertible could very well be the “Ford in Your Future.”
S62 1970 Plymouth Cuda Convertible BH27N0B271279 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Purple over Black. Originally rolling off the truck in 1970 with a Shaker-scooped 383 V-8 supplying motivation, this Plum Crazy Cuda convertible was painstakingly built on a rotisserie as a coveted Hemi car using numerous NOS components, saved notably for the star of the show. Resting in this “Mopar Magazine” feature subject’s highly detailed engine compartment isn’t a box-stock 425 HP elephant motor, instead we have a Herman’s Performance Clinic beast sporting aluminum heads, welcomed modernizations considering the performance upgrade over the original iron castings. But other than its nostalgic-styled Goodyear Eagle GT II tires, most of this fast fish’s remaining makeup represents classic Detroit muscle at its concours-quality best. A half-century back, Plymouth offered its redesigned Barracuda in three forms: a base model, Gran Coupe and top-shelf Cuda, the most desirable of the trio by far. Among Cuda accoutrements for 1970 were fog lamps, hood pins and “hockey stick” body striping that announced engine displacement out back. Under the hood rests a MP 426 casting with Childs & Albert I-beam connecting rods topped with .030-over JE pistons, resulting in 10.25:1 compression. To improve performance even further, a Crower cam spec’d at 284/294 duration and .520/.511 lift is installed. Ported and polished aluminum heads with Manley Severe Duty valves, 2.25-inch intake and 1.94-inch exhaust with Crower springs, let this engine breathe. Delivering fuel to this behemoth is a Holley 850 CFM carb sitting atop a Mopar M1 intake. To tame the power, a 4-speed transmission with Centerforce clutch disc and billet-aluminum flywheel is paired with a Dana 60 rear end. Production of topless Hemi Cudas in 1970 was miles beyond limited—nine automatics and five manuals—explaining the record asking prices seen for these rolling legends, not to mention the growing demand for well-built Hemi-powered cars like this particular Cuda Convertible.
S63 1954 Buick Skylark Convertible 7A1129677 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 $82,500 €71,250 -34% Black over Red. This 1954 Buick Skylark Convertible is equipped with all the expected standard equipment befitting its base price of more than $5,000, nearly twice that of the least expensive 1954 Buick. This Skylark has been refreshed with new hydraulic lines for its windows and power top. The fuel system has been refurbished, receiving a new gas tank, sending unit, lines and fuel pump in addition to a new battery, belts and hoses. In the hierarchy of General Motors’ five brands in the 1950s—Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Pontiac and Oldsmobile—Buick was the company’s prestige marque, positioned above Oldsmobile and just below Cadillac. It was known in many circles as the “doctor’s car,” or alternatively, a luxury car for everyone. The Skylark, a name used on many Buick models over a run of more than five decades, was introduced in 1953 to mark Buick’s 50th anniversary. It was one of three luxury convertibles marketed by General Motors, the other two being the Oldsmobile 98 Fiesta and Cadillac Series 62 Eldorado. All were positioned as top-of-the-line, limited-production, specialty convertibles. Of the three, the Skylark was the most successful from a sales standpoint with 1,690 units produced in its first year, and just 836 in 1954. Buick described the Skylark this way: “This is the spirit-lifting Skylark—Buick’s luxury sports car—with flight-designed lines, with road-compactness with the corsair-sweep of a finned rear deck—and with pulse-pounding performance second to none.” Credited to design master Harley Earl, the Skylark convertible included many of its styling cues from the 1953 Buick Wildcat Motorama concept car. Under the hood you’ll find Buick’s legendary 322/200 HP Fireball V-8 that replaced Buick’s longstanding straight-8. Over the years it was best known as the “Nailhead,” when each General Motors division built its own unique engines. Behind the Fireball V-8 was Buick’s Twin-Turbine Dynaflow transmission. Other Skylark innovations included a 12-volt electrical system and Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels. With low overall production and incredible attention to craftsmanship, the Skylark is one of the most desirable Buicks ever built. via RM Monterey ’10 $79k.
S64 1961 Chevrolet Impala Restomod 11837L106806 $225,000.00 $275,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White over Tan. Known as “Double Bubble,” this artfully crafted 1961 Chevrolet Impala Resto Mod represents high automotive sculpture, beautifully conceived and executed by Greening Auto Company in Nashville. Grafting on an additional top from a 1961 Pontiac turned the Chevrolet hardtop into super-stylish hardtop wagon complete with an opening tailgate. The exterior was cleaned up and decluttered, with Greening Auto Company removing door handles, window trim, badging, windshield wipers, moldings and lettering. Roof pillars were hand-formed, and the roofline was dropped 3 inches; the front sheet metal was lengthened to get the right proportions, body joints were removed and fenders were flared to accommodate the extra-wide wheels and tires. The ride height was radically dropped. The engine in this Resto Mod is based on a 409 V-8, built to 473 CI, and is loaded with premium components like an Eagle crankshaft, Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads and pistons with a compression ratio of 10.5:1. A short-tube stacked fuel-injection system feeds the engine, which is color coordinated and set in an engine compartment that conceals the wires and plumbing. Custom headers and Flowmaster mufflers are key parts of the custom exhaust system. Elsewhere in the chassis are a McLeod clutch and a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission. The rear of this Impala features a tough Ford 9-inch rear axle with 3.50:1 ring-and-pinion gears and a Detroit Locker differential. The axle mounts with a triangulated 4-link setup, and Wilwood brakes are at all four wheels. Front suspension on the Impala is a Mustang II system with rack-and-pinion steering. The interior is a custom creation by Paul Atkins, and features custom-built leather bucket seats with electric adjusters, a tilt steering column and a hand-built leather dash loaded with Classic Instruments gauges. A tall floor shifter operates the transmission, and custom-built door panels and custom-color carpet complete the interior. This highly innovative ’61 was a 2016 winner of the Pirelli Great 8 Award.
S65 1961 Chrysler 300G 8413159853 $95,000.00 $115,000.00 $88,000 €76,000 -7% Black over Tan. In 1955, Chrysler introduced the 300 model series, taking Detroit’s emerging styling and horsepower trends to new heights. By introducing factory performance components to bring its engine to an industry-high 300 HP in a sporty full-size body design, that first 300 started a legend that upgraded each year. By 1961, the 300G had found its power number at 375 HP for the Golden Lion V-8, a hot version of the 413 CI RB wedge engine featuring Chrysler’s exclusive ram-tube induction. This featured twin 4-barrel Carter AFB carburetors located on opposing plenums set a specific 30-inch distance from the intake valve, which subsequently created “sonic supercharging” at a given RPM level. This long-ram design was for street use, but the engine also featured 10.1:1 compression and a forged-steel crankshaft. The fabulous car offered here was one of just 1,617 produced in 1961, a year noted for designer Virgil Exner’s Flight Sweep styling cues and sporting an original retail cost of close to $6,000. Covered in rich black paint with a lightly contrasting tan interior, this highway star features Chrysler’s A727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission and a 3.23:1 final gear ratio. Inside, the car features swivel front bucket seats with a full-length center console, ventilated leather upholstery and the “Control Center” instrument cluster with unique pearlescent night time illumination. Noted in the hobby, this car won the Chrysler Cup award at the 2011 Chrysler 300 International meet, and was featured in both “Hemmings Classic Cars” in 2008 and again as a buyer’s guide reference automobile in “Hemmings Muscle Machines” in 2013; examples of both magazines are included with the sale. The 413/375 HP Golden Lion V-8 wedge engine has been rebuilt, the exterior repainted once, and the brightwork is re-chromed on this car, which features both power steering and brakes. This letter car has traveled only 55,000 believed-original miles. With low production and luxury standard equipment, the 300 letter-series cars have become important icons of Chrysler’s postwar vehicle efforts; this well-appointed example offers an excellent opportunity to the discerning collector.

S66 1957 Kurtis Kraft 500G Bardahl Special N/A $200,000.00 $250,000.00 $258,500 €223,249 3% Black single seater. Few racing cars ever elicited more pure visceral excitement than a 1950s Indy Roadster, and this stunningly beautiful 1957 Kurtis Kraft 500G Bardahl Special Indy Car ticks all the right boxes on an emotional scale. Driven by “Cactus” Jack Turner to an 11th-place finish in the 1957 Indianapolis 500, this black beauty was campaigned by Pat Clancy’s racing team and sports a venerable 252 CI Offenhauser 4-cylinder racing engine. The engine has a distinctive growl that sounds a siren call to all, signaling that this machine means serious business. American-built Offenhauser racing engines utterly dominated the Indianapolis 500 from the mid-1930s to the mid-1970s, putting together an incredible record of success that is unlikely to ever be approached again in the annals of motorsports. Housing the powerplant is a Kurtis Kraft chassis built by the legendary Frank Kurtis, who saw his fabulous and innovative machines win the Indianapolis 500 an amazing five times in six years during the ‘50s. This eye-catching machine was meticulously restored by noted Indy guru Phil Riley and features a 2-speed racing transmission, chrome exhaust and chrome mesh grille, as well as the signature white-letter Firestone racing tires. Contrasting nicely with the shimmering black paint is a bright red-trimmed interior that houses a dashboard with minimal but important instrumentation, such as the tachometer, oil-pressure and temperature gauges. Instantly eligible for such lauded events as the SVRA Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational and the annual Millers at Milwaukee meet, this Kurtis Kraft is one sweet ride that still turns heads wherever it goes. Sold on a Bill of Sale, this is nothing less than a pure racing machine that can instantly transport the lucky winning bidder to what racing at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway was like in 1957. What a feeling that must have been.
S67 1963 Porsche 356B Coupe 214397 $50,000.00 $75,000.00 $49,500 €42,750 -1% Blue over Red. The instantly recognizable and iconic shape of the 356 is universally acknowledged as an epic industrial design. But beyond its organic shape, the design was dictated by the principles of low-drag aerodynamics combined with the utilitarian objectives of providing a comfortable interior cabin with excellent visibility. This 1963 Porsche 356B presents in the colorful combination of blue with a red interior, making for an interesting contrast rarely seen today. The 1600cc engine is fitted with twin Solex carburetors—the same ones used on high-horsepower Porsche powerplants such as the Super 90, 356 SC and even the Fuhrmann Four-Cam. The appearance is further enhanced with a set of period-correct chrome wheels with Porsche-crest hubcaps mounted on Dunlop radial tires. By the 1963 model year, Porsche’s 356 was nearing the end of its lifecycle. Throughout its production span that started in 1949, the car had been systematically improved and refined to exacting standards. In midyear 1962, the T6 body would emerge, the final iteration of the Erwin Komenda designed teardrop-shaped body of the 356. It would incorporate substantive changes that included a larger rear window, a larger engine-cover decklid with two intake grilles—as opposed to one intake on the previous generation T5—a larger front compartment lid with a more rectangular shape, a lower fuel tank to increase luggage space, the relocation of the gas-tank lid from inside the trunk area to an external lid located on the right front fender, and louvers cut into the cowl just in front of the windshield to improve cabin ventilation. Other subtle improvements included the addition of a windshield washer reservoir and controls for an infinitely variable windshield-wiper speed. The sound design and constant development practice that Porsche’s renowned engineers bestowed upon the 356 make it a classic with both style and substance.
S68 1973 Maserati Ghibli SS AM115/49*2402 $225,000.00 $250,000.00 $121,000 €104,499 -46% Giallo Fly over Tan leather. Conceived as a successor to the 6-cylinder Maserati Mistral, the Ghibli (named for the hot wind that blows from the south of France across the Mediterranean to North Africa) was designed to receive Maserati’s four-cam 4.7L V-8 engine, which had previously powered the massive Quattroporte sedan. Like the Quattroporte and the earlier Mexico, the Ghibli borrowed a shortened version of Maserati’s tubular frame, which included an independent front suspension with dual wishbones, coil springs and an anti-roll bar, with a live axle rear end suspended on semi-elliptic leaf springs and located by a single longitudinal torque arm. But where the Ghibili radically departed from its brethren was in its styling. Penned by a young Giorgetto Giugiaro, while he was at Ghia, the Ghibli featured a long (184 inches) and low (46 inches) fastback design that marked a new, more modern design ethos for Maserati when the prototype made its debut at the 1966 Turin Motor Show. Production of the new Ghibli began in 1967, in both spider and 2+2 fastback coupé configurations. Then, in 1969, Maserati began offering an upgraded version of the Ghibli, known as the SS, which featured a stroked version of the V-8 engine that now possessed 4930cc of displacement and, while wolfing down gas through four Weber 42 DCNF downdraft carburetors, was able to produce a whopping 330 HP at 5,500 RPM. This increased power output now enabled the Ghibli SS to rocket to a top speed of 174 MPH, making it the fastest road-going automobile Maserati had produced up to that point. In all, between 1967 and 1973, only 1,274 Ghiblis were produced, with 1,149 of those being coupes. The example on offer—cosmetically refreshed in Fly Yellow with a tan interior—is a highly desirable 4.9 SS manufactured during the final year of Ghibli production. via RM Scottsdale ’11 $102k.
S69 1957 Ford Thunderbird E-Code E7FH235018 $110,000.00 $135,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Red. Known as the E-Code, only 1,499 Thunderbirds were built in 1957 with the potent factory dual-quad setup, and this example is a multiple-award winning car that scored 297 points out of a possible 300 at the Thunderbird Nationals. Presented in red with a red interior and a black convertible top, it hosts the original full-size hubcaps over body-colored steel wheels all wrapped in wide whitewalls, as well as the spare tire located in the detailed trunk along with the original floor mats. The paint is much like the brightwork—lustrous, reflective and rich—while the interior looks as though it just popped off the pages of the sales brochure, the engine-turned aluminum trim glistening against the magnificent red upholstery, the courtesy light glowing softly above the original Town and Country radio and the sporty gauges nestled within the binnacle exquisitely. One examination of this Thunderbird and it’s obvious why these cars are so highly coveted. Under the hood is the 312 CI V-8 engine producing 270 HP thanks to the twin 4-barrel carburetor option. Not only is it quicker than the average Thunderbird, but it’s equipped with an automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes and power windows. It’s Thunderbirds like this one, with all these amenities, that exemplify Ford’s idea of producing a sporty, personal car with luxurious optional features over a pure sports car. The concept came about after Ford executives attended the Paris Auto Salon at the Grand Palais in 1951 and were impressed by the luxurious, sporty offerings available. As production neared in 1954, a drawing was held to name the new car; several Ford employees dropped their ideas in a box and the winner would receive a handsome monetary bonus. A young design employee from New Mexico suggested the Thunderbird name, derived from the North American creature of the same name. It was chosen, and the young man asked for a custom-tailored suit and enough money for a dinner at a high-end restaurant over the cash, and the rest is history.
S70 1941 Lincoln Continental Convertible H125985 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Maroon over Maroon leather. Having scored 97.83 points at the 2009 Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Lincoln Continental Owners Club event, this multiple-award winning car received the coveted Best of Show Award and only a cursory examination is needed to reveal why. Powered by the 292/120 HP V-12 engine, 3-speed manual transmission and rare Columbia 2-speed rear axle, these early Continentals exemplified sophisticated engineering, design and comfort while exuding exclusivity and wealth. The maroon paint of this 1941 Continental is deep and clear, dressed with brightwork that is likewise reflective; the interior matches the maroon exterior finish and is just as impressive as the rest of the car. The black convertible top appears as new, and overall, even under the hood, this Continental looks like it just came off the showroom floor. The V-12 and engine bay are exquisite, looking like they were just detailed by the Lincoln agency for delivery to the customer; similarly, the interior presents superbly with the upholstery and paint seemingly without blemish, and the knobs and switchgear as fresh as can be. As a proper luxury car should be, this car is well equipped with a heater and radio, which, of course, for 1941 was very impressive. Rolling on whitewall tires wrapping body-color-matched steel wheels brightened with chrome hubcaps and beauty rings, the famous Continental kit is mounted at the rear bumper. The Continental came to be when Edsel Ford thought it would be a good idea to bring a factory-built, custom-bodied car to his vacation home in Florida, where he could present the car to the wealthier set. Eugene “Bob” Gregorie styled the car largely after the Lincoln Zephyr, supposedly finishing the initial sketches in just an hour, and it was built in time for the 1939 summer holiday. The Continental proved to be a big success for Lincoln and lined the coffers with healthy profits until production ended in 1948. This Lincoln Continental Convertible epitomizes the initial concept Edsel had in mind for the division, a concept that still fuels the imaginations of enthusiasts the world over.
S71 1957 Dodge Royal Lancer Convertible 37305376 $135,000.00 $165,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Black and Red. This 1957 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer Convertible has real presence on the road and proved to be a legitimate affordable alternative to many pricier competitors in its period. Having nearly been swallowed up by bankruptcy in the earlier part of the 1950s and armed with a $250 million loan from Prudential, the Chrysler Corporation stepped it up in 1955 with striking new designs and tremendously well-packaged vehicles. In 1956, the offerings got even better, and the Custom Royal Lancer was introduced as the top-of-the-line model from Dodge. CRLs, as enthusiasts often refer to them as, were a major leap for Dodge, offering amenities and styling efforts seldom or never before seen on a Dodge vehicle. With Chrysler introducing hugely restyled vehicles for 1957, the Dodge CRL became truly glitzy, letting everyone know it was the division’s best. Advertising of the day proclaimed, “Swept-Wing is Sweeping the Country,” indicating the long, tall, futuristically finned rear fenders. Dodge offered the Custom Royal Lancer in convertible, sedan and hardtop coupe with pillarless-roof styling, upstaging a number of competitor cars with a price tag that reflected a lot of value. This Custom Royal Lancer convertible is powered by a 325 CI V-8 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor and an automatic transmission controlled by pushbuttons on the dashboard, a trademark Chrysler Corporation feature that illustrated the company’s interest in producing technologically advanced, futuristic vehicles. Presented in black with a black and red interior, this CRL is exemplary of Dodge’s idea of a top-drawer car. The convertible top is power operated, as are the steering, brakes, windows and bench seat; it’s also equipped with a radio connected to twin aerials upon the rear deck. The dual exhaust allows an unobtrusive but authoritative note, and the spinner-style hubcaps are affixed to steel wheels wrapped with whitewall tires. The brightwork gleams effortlessly upon the deeply reflective black paint and, all things told, this 1957 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer Convertible is an exciting example of Dodge’s most luxurious offering for the era.
S72 1955 Mercury Montclair Convertible 55LA39456M $100,000.00 $125,000.00 $107,250 €92,625 Mid Blue and White inside and out. In 1955, Mercury stepped out on its own, distancing itself from Ford through designs that were inherently unique to the division. In fact, some of its advertising boasted, “You don’t have to look twice to tell it’s a Mercury.” Prior to this, Mercury very largely shared styling and design with cars from the parent company, making it difficult to justify the extra money Mercury commanded in the showrooms. Further embodying the upscale nature of the new Mercuries, the Montclair was introduced. Available as a sedan, coupe or convertible, the Montclair was offered with two-tone paint and came with a bevy of extra chrome, stainless and aluminum trim separating itself from lower-level models. This 1955 Mercury Montclair Convertible is presented in blue with a white convertible top and a matching blue and white interior. Powered by the 292/195 HP V-8 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor and Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission, it’s also equipped with the automatic chassis-lubrication system. Marketed as Auto-Lube or Automatic Multi-Luber, the concept was devised between Ford Motor Company and the Lincoln Industrial Corporation, the company that invented the lever-action grease gun, to allow car owners to keep their chassis well-lubed, providing trouble-free motoring for years. Press a button on the dashboard and a reservoir under the hood sent a measured amount of grease through various hoses to multiple points on the chassis, providing the necessary lubrication. Pretty slick. (No pun intended.) As if the Auto-Lube doesn’t demonstrate the well-equipped nature of this Montclair enough, it also features power steering, power brakes, a power front seat, a power convertible top, dual exhausts, dual spotlights and a Continental kit. Rolling on steel wheels with whitewall tires, this Montclair absolutely epitomizes what Mercury was trying to do with its 1955 offerings—exemplify sophisticated luxury, forward-thinking engineering and glamorous styling.
S73 2008 Lamborghini Reventon ZHWBU77S88LA03536 $1,700,000.00 $2,000,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grigio Reventon over Nero Perseus leather and Olive Verde Alcantara. Number 20 of only 20 produced, this 2008 Lamborghini Reventón is among the most exclusive, radical automobiles the company has ever built, the boldest of statements coming as it does from the folks who brought you the Miura, the Countach and the Diablo. Named in the Lamborghini tradition after the fighting bull that killed famed bullfighter Felix Guzman in 1943, the Reventón was Lamborghini’s answer to such designer one-offs as the Pininfarina Ferrari P4/5 and Maserati GS Zagato. Not wanting to wait for an outside design house to steal its thunder, the company decided to issue its own special, in the process producing the first car to be totally designed by the Centro Stile Lamborghini in Sant’ Agata, as well as the first Lamborghini modeled entirely digitally. No clay models were built; just five months after the initial sketches were completed in March 2007, the Reventón was unveiled at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. The Reventón’s interior is every bit as unique, showing off Nero Perseus leather and Olive Verde Alcantara upholstery covering carbon-fiber seats, and a new instrument cluster made of carbon-covered billet aluminum and sheltering three aircraft-style Thin Film Transistor screens in place of analog readouts. These can be configured to show all driver information in two different layouts, one patterned after contemporary aircraft design and another using round analog-style readouts for those who prefer more conventional instrumentation. Distinctive arrow design patterns are punched into the Alcantara inserts in the seats, carpets and headliner, a motif repeated in the tail-light design. White thread decorates the black leather upholstery and is used for the Reventón logos stitched into the door panels and the Lamborghini insignias decorating the headrests. Other interior surfaces are trimmed in highly polished carbon fiber as standard fitment, namely the dash inserts, steering wheel lower rim, console plate and passenger grab handle. Bold styling always leads the way in designing the latest raging bull, but no Lamborghini is complete without a brilliantly engineered drivetrain and chassis, and the Reventón lives up to its unique status in both categories. Visible beneath the Reventón’s arrow-motif back glass, its 6.5L V-12 engine comes straight from the Murciélago, but a dash of tuning has raised output by 10 ponies to 641 HP. Mated to the paddle-shifted E-Gear 6-speed transmission, the Reventón’s V-12 accelerates the car to 60 MPH in 3.4 seconds on the way to its 211 MPH top speed. Driven just 168 miles and in pristine as-completed condition, this last of the 20 exclusive Reventóns built is offered with all accompanying factory ancillaries as a complete package that includes the owner’s manual packet and serialized knapsack, Reventón supplement book, battery tender and fitted car cover. A milestone in Lamborghini’s rich history of advanced design, the Reventón promises to fulfill its destiny as a true automotive classic.
S74 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera ZHWGU43TX8LA06439 $175,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Arancio Borealis over Nero Perseus leather. Lamborghini introduced the compact V-10-powered Gallardo in 2003 as a stablemate to its V-12 models, the Murcielago and that car’s successor, the Aventador. Named, following Lamborghini tradition, after a famed fighting bull, the Gallardo became Lamborghini’s best-selling model with a 10-year production run of 14,022 cars. Only 618 of those, however, were issued bearing the Superleggera name paying tribute to the first Lamborghini, the 350 GT designed and built by Carrozzeria Touring. The word “Superleggera” translates from the Italian as “super light,” a term that refers to a coachbuilding technique emphasizing weight reduction. In today’s world, achieving that same end means substituting carbon fiber wherever possible, and the Superleggera version of the aluminum-spaceframed Gallardo is lighter than the standard model by a full 220 pounds by using carbon fiber for the engine cover, rear diffuser, undertray, mirror housings, interior door panels, central tunnel and seat frames; the last few ounces were saved by using titanium wheel nuts. Driven just 322 original miles, this 2008 Gallardo Superleggera is an arresting sight in brilliant Arancio Borealis paint with black sill stripes and a Nero Perseus leather interior. Further weight was saved with the optional carbon package that surrounds the aluminum 5.0L/530 HP V-10 with multi-port fuel injection, Variable Geometry intake system and variable valve timing. A paddle-shifted, dry-clutch 6-speed E-gear transmission, limited-slip differential and rear-biased all-wheel drive complete the Superleggera’s superb drivetrain, transforming the V-10’s explosive power into incredible performance through all-wheel aluminum double-wishbone suspension and power 4-wheel disc brakes to sticky Pirelli P-Zero Cobra tires on 19-inch aluminum wheels. More than a sensational track machine, the Superleggera is also well equipped for touring. In addition to front-end lift, tinted glass, power folding mirrors, dual-zone climate control and electronic stability, this fiery raging bull features such valuable extras as a carbon-fiber rear wing, navigation and a rearview camera.
S75 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP650-4 Roadster ZHWBU4AN1ALA03871 $340,000.00 $380,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grigio Telesto and Arancio over Nero Perseus leather and Alcantara. This 2010 Lamborghini Murcielago LP650-4 Roadster is the 49th built of an exclusive series of 50 examples, and at just 179 miles, it presents like new. Like its namesake—a champion bull whose spirit and ferocity led its opponent, the great Spanish matador Rafael Molina, to spare its life—the Lamborghini Murcielago was specially bred for brute strength and beauty. Successor to the Countach and Diablo, it introduced a new level of design and performance surpassing both, with a broad-shouldered body of pronounced girth that nonetheless was designed to slice through the air with ease thanks to moveable flaps that direct current where it is most needed to maximize both cooling and aerodynamic trim. After introducing several special coupe and roadster variants, in 2009, Lamborghini released this LP650-4 Roadster in a limited edition of just 50 cars, all finished in a distinctive gray-over-orange livery—Grigio Telesto and Arancio in the Italian literature—that was repeated in the cockpit. Built on a high-strength alloy tube chassis, the LP650-4 Roadster uses all-independent double-wishbone front and rear suspension, power rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel power carbon-ceramic disc brakes with orange 6-piston calipers clamping down on ventilated discs behind 18-inch aluminum black-gloss wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero rubber. Like the Diablo and subsequent Murciélago models, the LP650-4 is driven at all four wheels by the mid-mounted all-aluminum 6.5L DOHC V-12 engine beneath a glass canopy, generating 650 HP through the magic of multi-port fuel injection fed by a variable geometry air-intake system, dry-sump lubrication and variable valve timing. With a distinctive roar that can be felt and heard by its occupants, the V-12 cranks its torque through Lamborghini’s stout E-Gear transmission. This highly exclusive LP650-4’s distinctive cockpit features Nero Perseus leather, orange stitching and accents, Alcantara seat and panel inserts and black piano-type trim, and controls for front-end lift and Kenwood audio systems.
S76 2001 Lamborghini Diablo SE ZA9DU01B91LA12887 $375,000.00 $425,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Marrone Elkipsis over Marrone leather. From its initial inception by designer Marcello Gandini, the Lamborghini Diablo’s aggressive styling has been a subject of controversy. Chrysler took over Lamborghini just after Gandini finalized his design, which the new parent company’s more conservative management immediately handed over to its chief designer Tom Gale. Much to Gandini’s very public chagrin, Gale softened the new model’s shape to better appeal to the powers at Chrysler. It did not blunt the Diablo’s visceral appeal, however, and the line carried through several evolutionary stages, picking up 4-wheel drive, adjustable suspension and a number of other mechanical and cosmetic refinements along the way. Then in 1998, a new-generation Diablo debuted with reworked styling that included new front and rear fascia, smoother detailing and a fresh new interior. The 2001 Diablo’s 6.0L V-12 engine rose from its original rating of 492 to 550, shaving a full second from its 0-60 MPH time to 3.6 seconds and boosting top speed from 202 to 205 MPH. This stunning 2001 Lamborghini Diablo SE is number 37 of a special edition of 40 produced and one of only 20 in show-stopping effervescent Marrone Eklipsis and is matched inside with Marrone leather. By 2001, carbon fiber was firmly entrenched as a construction and styling element in automotive design, as can be seen in this Diablo SE’s front splitter, headlight trim, rocker panels and center console. The SE package added more to the Diablo’s already highly exotic mix with a titanium 5-speed shift knob and shift gate, special wide carbon-fiber weave with nickel threading, titanium instrument dial surrounds, Lamborghini brake calipers, magnesium intake manifolds and cam covers, an Alpine infotainment system with navigation, CD changer and amplifier, and power-seat backrests. Another superb offering from the Marshall Goldman Limited Production Lamborghini Collection, it shows just 2,433 kilometers (1,511 miles) and comes with a tool pouch, four keys and two remotes.
S77 1957 Maserati 3500GT AM101*1612 $250,000.00 $275,000.00 $173,250 €149,624 -30% Blu Metallizzato over Tan leather. In the mid-1950s, Maserati was arguably at the height of its racing powers with both the 250F dominating Formula 1 and the 350S highly successful in endurance sports-car racing. In 1957, Maserati set about creating a new grand-touring road car that, at its heart, utilized a road-going version of the 350S sports car’s 3.5L DOHC long-stroke inline 6-cylinder engine. At the 1957 Geneva Salon, Maserati debuted two examples of this new GT coupe, one bodied by Allemano and the other by Carrozzeria Touring and featuring its “Superleggera” construction of a lightweight aluminum body, draped over a small-diameter steel-tubed skeleton. After being met with resounding praise, the touring-bodied 3500 GT coupe would go into production later that year, with 1,984 examples being constructed by the model’s end in 1964. This stunning example, finished in metallic blue with a tan interior, features the 3.5L/217 HP aluminum-block inline 6-cylinder engine, breathing through three Weber twin-choke carburetors and mated to a ZF 4-speed manual gearbox. Stopping power comes from Girling disc brakes up front and finned aluminum drums in the rear, acting on a Salisbury live axle. Interior appointments include a gorgeous body-colored dashboard equipped with Jaeger gauges, all trimmed in rich tan leather. Rounding out the package, the GT rides on Pirelli-shod painted wheels with bright Maserati-logoed hubcaps and trim rings. It’s a rare opportunity to acquire an early example of one of Maserati’s most successful and desirable road cars.
S78 1936 Packard 1404 Dual Cowl Sport Phaeton 941-206 $375,000.00 $425,000.00 $451,000 €389,498 6% Maroon over Tan. Restored over 5 years. Meadowbrook class winner.
S79 1967 Ferrari 275GTB/4 10717 $3,000,000.00 $3,100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grigio Mahmoud over Saddle Tan leather. This example, purchased by Ferrari Mechanic Terry Myr in 1970, carries Chassis No. 10717 and its original matching engine, also No. 10717. Original and unrestored but for a single repaint in Grigio Mahmoud in the early 1970s, it retains its original Saddle Tan leather interior, glass and lenses, and it presents in excellent overall condition. In addition to an upgrade to an under-dash AM/FM radio, the car received a repaired/replacement odometer; Mr. Myr believes the correct mileage is just less than 15,000 kilometers. This exquisite classic Ferrari has earned Ferrari Classiche Certification and will be offered with the original owner’s manuals, factory tool roll, wheel chock and bill of sale from 1970. Ferraris of this caliber, originality and rarity are seldom offered for public sale, making this a very special opportunity to move into the investment-grade Ferrari marketplace.
S80 1948 Ford Super Deluxe Marmon-Herrington Wagon 2341564 $250,000.00 $325,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black and wood over Tan leather. Postwar Ford woodies have been used as Street Rod projects and highway restorations for decades now, but few are equipped today like this 1948 Super Deluxe model. The final year for the all-wood body from Dearborn, this version received a woodsman-friendly Marmon-Herrington all-wheel-drive conversion. The focus of a recent and meticulous nut-and-bolt restoration to its original specs, you can be assured that this is not something found on every show field, or every farm field for that matter, as many utilitarian vehicles like this were simply used until that point when they were ready for scrap. Making this completed example especially attractive to the buyer wanting something unique is its authenticity to detail. Under that all-steel black hood is a 239 CI 59A-B flathead V-8 engine with a downdraft single-barrel carburetor beneath the oil-bath-type air cleaner. The power to the twin differentials comes through a 4-speed Borg Warner manual transmission and in-out transfer case. The conversion meant considerable height over stock, useful in rocky terrain or fording shallow waterways, but such jaunts are unlikely now thanks to the wonderful maple-frame-with-mahogany-panel bodywork. Mahogany door panels are colorfully matched, and the metal dash is finished in maple-grain paint, with the interior material itself a complementary brown. This car’s options include the factory radio. The design of the 4-wheel-drive layouts includes the transfer case, dual semi-elliptical leaf springs up front and a single horizontally opposed rear leaf spring. The overall look of the vehicle is enhanced by 15-inch steel wheels in black with chrome dish-design hubcaps and 7.00-15LT Super Traxion off-road tires. Approximately 398 miles have been added since this restoration. Marmon-Herrington was a pioneering firm in all-wheel-drive vehicle construction, and this special final-year 1948 woody wagon aptly reflects its heritage, as well as that of the Ford Motor Company.

S82 1936 Ford Jack Colori Coupe 18-2636987 $350,000.00 $450,000.00 $407,000 €351,498 Mid Black over Red. Long Beach native and World War II veteran Jack Calori was searching for a tow car for his famous Clay Smith-prepared 1929 Ford Model A racer when he discovered a 1936 Ford three-window coupe for sale by its original owner in 1947. It wasn’t long before Calori’s friend, local body man Herb Reneau, convinced Calori that the Ford needed the custom treatment, and one of history’s most stunning custom 1936 Fords was born. Reneau installed a drop front axle and Z’d the frame at the rear to lower the car; chopped the top three inches and massaged the front end to accept a 1939 LaSalle front grille and 1941 Chevrolet headlights; added fender skirts, 1941 Hudson tail lights and 1941 Ford bumpers with Lincoln overriders; and finished it off with lustrous black paint. Just prior to the car’s completion, Calori installed the race-prepped 1946 Mercury flathead from his 1929 Model A, giving it the power to run 114.50 MPH at a 1948 Russetta Timing Association meet. Racing revealed the flathead engine’s tendency to overheat, a problem caused by the La Salle grille’s smaller opening and the fact that there was no room for a fan in the engine compartment. Calori and his coupe made history the following year, appearing on the front cover of the November issue of “Hot Rod” magazine. Soon afterward, Calori gave up on the car’s overheating problems and traded it for a $1,600 credit toward the purchase of a new 1950 Mercury. As so often happens, the car passed from one new owner to another until it was discovered in Spokane, Washington, in the early 1990s and purchased by collector Don Orosco. In 2002, Orosco sold the coupe to its previous owner, who commissioned Hot Rodding legend Roy Brizio to restore it in time to win the first-ever Early Custom Cars 1935-1948 Class and the Dean Bachelor Award for ‘Most Historically Significant Hot Rod’ at the 2005 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, where Brizio and Calori himself accepted the prizes. The restored Calori Coupe serves as a window to the past, preserving all the details that make it a landmark machine in the Hot Rodding-customizing culture. It’s all there, including the red “leatherette” interior and the thoroughly polished and chromed 1946 Mercury 59AB flathead engine complete with Clay Smith cam, Myer aluminum heads, Weiand intake and twin downdraft carburetors. It has been displayed at the Petersen Automotive Museum as a living piece of Hot Rod history and was featured on the front cover of Issue 31 of the prestigious “Rodders Journal.”
S83 1954 Chrisman Bonneville N/A $500,000.00 $700,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A “Several forces converged in the California car culture in the early years following World War II to launch it to a new level of competition and development. Founded in 1937, the Southern California Timing Association had reconvened after the war and by 1949 had grown to include the Bonneville Salt Flats as an official venue for speed records; car clubs were propagating like never before, affecting intense rivalries and resulting in a new scoring system, and that same year coupes were allowed to compete for the first time in SCTA history against the more “exclusive” open roadsters. At the same time, engine technologies were advancing with the advent of the production overhead-valve V-8, several versions of which could be modified with parts from a fledgling yet burgeoning speed-equipment industry. At the center of this revolutionary maelstrom were the Chrisman brothers, Art and Lloyd, whose father Everett had raised them on the fabricator’s art and the craftsman’s ethos, and with them founded the Chrisman and Sons garage in Compton. The Chrismans established their reputations early on with the famed No. 25 dragster, the first car to reach 140 and 180 MPH in the quarter mile, and a 1934 Ford coupe that hit 140 MPH on the salt at Bonneville. All the experience gained by the Chrismans on both salt and asphalt came together in the 1930 Ford-based Bonneville racer that would set three different SCTA class records and become the template for the classic Competition Coupe that prevails to this day. Radically chopped, with a sharply laid-back windshield, mail-slot windows and a slippery nose cone fabricated from two 1940 Ford hoods, the coupe was a beautifully aggressive-looking showcase for the Chrismans’ trademark technical and aesthetic skills, its mere appearance enough to intimidate the competition. The car also featured innovative packaging, with the engine, transmission and rear end assembled as a modular unit placed behind the driver, who sat up front mere inches away from the windshield in a close-fitting cockpit whose ingress and egress required considerable flexibility. Instrumentation on the engine-turned dash panel allowed the driver to monitor engine RPM, oil pressure and water temperature. Driver protection was quite advanced, with a full roll cage, wide aircraft-surplus seatbelts and a floor-mounted fire extinguisher close at hand. Built on a strong yet lightweight tubular steel frame, the coupe used a front axle and leaf-spring suspension from a 1938 Ford. A solidly mounted Halibrand quick-change unit afforded the flexibility in gear ratios required by the planned use of a wide variety of engines, and rear-only drum brakes were operated by a hand lever in the cockpit. Behind the firewall, side-mounted five-gallon jerry cans held the engine coolant, another factor enabling the use of different powerplants. A roof-mounted scoop directed cold fresh air to the engine compartment, whose heat was vented through a multitude of louvers in the rear decklid. In typical Chrisman style, the bodywork, including a full bellypan, was painstakingly hand fitted for maximum streamlining, and then painted in bronze metallic with red trim. As “”Hot Rod”” and other “gearhead” magazines were chronicling the clash between flathead and pushrod engines, the Chrismans arrived at Bonneville in 1953 with their outlandish new creation and three heavily modified Ford engines. The 304 CI Mercury from the No. 25 dragster was the first to run, taking the coupe to a one-way Class C mark of 163.63 MPH; after the Merc died from an overdose of nitro on its return pass, the brothers replaced it with another flathead fitted with Ardun hemi heads, setting a new class B record of 160.187 MPH. They installed another Mercury flathead for a second shot at the class C record, but tuning gremlins put an end to their efforts for that year’s event.
After appearing on the cover of the February 1954 issue of “”Hot Rod”” under the headline “The Most Fantastic Coupe,”” the car returned that year with Chrysler Hemi power, setting new class B and C records at 180.87 MPH and 180.08 MPH respectively, and again in 1955, when they set the new D class record at more than 196 MPH. The coupe was then retired, and the Chrisman brothers set their sights back on drag racing, where they continued their innovative and winning ways. The Chrisman Brothers coupe was sold in the early 1960s to George Barris, who modified it for its new roles in television’s “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis” and on the traveling car-show circuit. The transformation included White Pearl paint, gullwing doors to aid filming, Halibrand beanies with slicks and spoked front cycle wheels with trailing pontoons, making it almost completely unrecognizable as the former Bonneville record holder. After years on the show circuit, the car was returned to Art Chrisman, who restored it to its original form and installed an injected 331-inch Chrysler Hemi. It was then bought by Joe MacPherson and placed on display in his famous Joe’s Garage. In 2001, the Chrisman Brothers Coupe was one of the first crop of historic rods invited to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in the brand new “Famous Hot Rod Coupes” class, along with the Pierson Brothers’ 2D Coupe, the So-Cal Speed Shop Coupe and the Mooneyham and Sharp 554 Drag Coupe. Prepared and accompanied by Art Chrisman, the Coupe was awarded third place in the category, a crowning moment for both the car and its creators. Born at a turning point in the formative years of California’s Hot Rod culture, a multiple-class record holder and “”Hot Rod”” magazine feature car, one of the first “TV cars” and an inaugural Pebble Beach class winner, and in retrospect, the very car that established the parameters for an entire automotive design genre, the Chrisman Brothers Coupe is one of the most important automotive icons in 20th century American popular culture. via RM Joes Garage ’08 $660k.”
S84 1932 Ford Roadster Hotrod SCDMV000000532184 $80,000.00 $120,000.00 $88,000 €76,000 Mid Red over Tan. With an all-steel Ford body and frame, this brilliant “Deuce” roadster is a reflection of the Southern California dry lakes Rods of the late ‘40s and early ‘50s. Powered by a GM 350 CI V-8 topped by with 2-barrel carburetors, the motor has been dressed with 1950 Oldsmobile valve covers. These afford a convincing vintage look in light of the fact that Olds high-compression overhead-valve Rocket V-8s were among the most sought-after replacements for original Ford flatheads. Fronted by the iconic ’32 Ford radiator shell and grille and finished in brilliant Signal Red with a tan leather interior, the car features a folding, adjustable windshield and leather hood tie-down straps and chromed contemporary Hot Rod suspension components and automatic transmission. The yellow custom dashboard and steering wheel with Ford V-8 logo horn button, sourced from a 1940 Ford, offer a tasteful contrast to the paint scheme and underscore the aura of the postwar Hot Rod era in an authentic way. The machined aluminum-lined trunk is a window into the past with period components including a Flying A cooler and a toolbox festooned with decals from the period as well as timing plates, a spare gas container and mounted spare. Red steel wheels with chrome trim and whitewalls and Ford-script hubcaps are complemented by Buick-style aluminum drum covers that conceal disc brakes. This car, built in 2011 at a cost of $168,000 recollects the golden era of dry lakes racing when the Southern California Timing Association officiated events at Muroc, Rosamond and El Mirage. With less than 500 miles driven since completion, this car is a testimony to the rodder’s art and pays lyrical homage to a time in postwar America when Rodding was a manifestation of the emergence of teenage car culture.
S85 1928 Ford Roadster Hotrod A4369 $80,000.00 $120,000.00 $110,000 €95,000 Mid Black over Burgundy. Henry Ford may have put America on wheels, but it was the “Greatest Generation” that brought speed to America. Perhaps no car is more quintessentially American than the Hot Rod, yet this 1928 Model A Roadster consists of several trans-Atlantic touches that make it more of an international affair. Bear Essentials of Columbia, South Carolina, began the build with an all-steel 1928 Ford Roadster body, then mated it to a 1932 Ford chassis featuring a 2.5-inch drop front axle. Backed by a Ford 4-speed manual transmission, the 21-stud 1935 flathead V-8 was built by H&H Flatheads and features period finned-aluminum heads and other 1930s speed equipment, dual Stromberg carburetors, and Edmunds air cleaners atop an Offenhauser intake. Fuel is pumped via dual SU units, with the expended gas routed to cast-aluminum, English “fish tail” exhausts. The whole operation is kept in check with an aluminum radiator. Inside, you’ll be cradled by burgundy leather Zeppelin seats, which brings you face-to-face with classic Smiths gauges set in an engine-turned instrument panel. A Brooklands windscreen, mirrors, switches and steering wheel add more of that splendid British feel to this distinctly American affair, with the latter connected to a track-style box with external linkage. Up front, massive Ford commercial truck headlights and Lucas driving lights with stone guards handle the more illuminating tasks. Out back, a period-correct tool kit and supplemental radiator bottles give company to the wire spare tire under the louvered rear deck. Since its completion in 2012—to the tune of an estimated $163,000—this all-steel 1928 Ford Roadster Hot Rod has been maintained in the collection of a respectful enthusiast, and its uniqueness and creativity has been recognized by Dennis Gage on “My Classic Car,” Season 20, Episode 10.
S86 1936 Ford Pickup 2738314 $80,000.00 $120,000.00 $71,500 €61,750 -11% Grey and Black over Black. Acquired from the original owner who bought it way back in 1936, this half-ton Ford features an estimated $133,000 worth of restoration work and modern upgrades, most of them performed in 2010 by Bear Essentials in Columbia, South Carolina. Actually, it’s more of a nostalgic labor of love than a restoration that incorporates many period-correct hop-ups wearing legendary brand-names, reminding us of what a hot-blooded young trucker might’ve eagerly bolted together about a half-century ago after leafing through the pages of “Hot Rod” magazine. The star of the show is the professionally rebuilt 1948 24-stud Flathead V-8—a 21-stud flattie was the stone-stock norm in 1936—enhanced with a set of aluminum Edelbrock high-compression heads, a pair of Stromberg 97 carburetors riding high atop an Eddie Meyer aluminum intake, a Joe Hunt magneto and a de rigueur (for the ’50s and early ’60s) firewall-mounted beehive oil filter. Headers and cam also are vintage recreations, as is the Winters quick-change rear end. Complementing all this go-fast hardware out back is a cargo bed floor and unique storage box fabulously fashioned out of mahogany and finished with 20 coats of varnish, all courtesy of the celebrated Michael Rybovich and Sons Custom Boat Works in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, long renowned for its hand-crafted sport-fishing vessels. Wheels are widened nostalgic-styled artillery types, and the transmission is a Ford 4-speed manual. Additional modernizations include an alternator beneath the folding hood and a sound system and Classic Instruments gauges inside. Lowered nicely, this Ford still appears at a glance much as it did in ’36, thanks to its unmodified sheet metal and remaining true Blue Oval factory features, like the optional side-mounted spare (on the passenger side) and fold-out windshield with its single wiper arm. Classic-looking wide whitewall tires finish off the package in style.
S87 1951 Ford Woody Wagon B1SP139823 $80,000.00 $120,000.00 $63,800 €55,100 -20% Green and wood over Brown and Tan. This 1951 Ford Woody stands ready, willing and able to hit the sand with a custom surfboard rack on top. Away from the waves, it also has spent static time on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan, appeared on the cover of the September 2005 issue of “Hemmings Classic Car” magazine and earned various class awards at concours events in South Florida. Ford’s last Woody was the company’s first wagon to wear the long-familiar Country Squire script and, like its 1949 and ’50 forerunners, featured a steel-framed body with wood panels inset into the doors, rear quarters and tailgate. Wood also outlined the rear window and side glass. Reportedly, maple was the lumber of choice for about 80 percent of the 29,107 Country Squires built for 1951, with birch making up the rest. The former was used in this case during a restoration performed by Larry Speet, of Holland, Michigan, in the early ’80s. Unlike their 4-door predecessors, all 1949-1951 Ford Woodys came only with two doors, a structural-simplification made to reduce creaks and squeaks common to the earlier, less-rigid all-wood bodies. Both 6-cylinder and Flathead V-8 Country Squires were offered, with the latter appearing here. Topped by an oil-bath air cleaner, this 239 CI Flathead is fitted with vintage Fenton headers backed by 2-inch pipes and Smitty glasspack mufflers that sound every bit as sweet as Brian Wilson and his brothers. And cousin. And good friend Al Jardine. The suspension also has been updated, with Jamco coil springs and torsion bars added up front. Teflon-lined leaf springs were bolted up in back to inhibit additional squeaking. Yes, those rear-window surf scene decals are originals, not reproductions. Hit the beach in style this summer in this stunning Woody Wagon.
S88 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I DHC LSMH21 $550,000.00 $650,000.00 $473,000 €408,498 -14% Cream over Cream leather. The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, introduced in 1956 to international acclaim, remains one of the epochal luxury vehicles of the postwar era. The example here stands out for many reasons. Foremost, Silver Cloud Chassis No. LSMH21 was custom-bodied by the firm of H.J. Mulliner of Chiswick, West London, into this remarkable and exclusive drophead coupe. The work was impressive enough that Rolls-Royce itself would acquire the Mulliner body-building firm outright in July 1959. There were a mere 12 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I Mulliner Drophead Coupes produced, of which nine were created as left-hand-drive examples for export to the United States. The example offered shows 48,000 believed-original miles and has benefited from a more recent cosmetic refreshing. Like all Rolls-Royce, this car has a colorful history, having been delivered new through noteworthy dealer J.S. Inskip of Manhattan, New York, to business heir George Baekeland of Southport, Connecticut, and later becoming part of the Ted Mintz Rolls-Royce Collection. This motorcar is equipped with the classic F-head 4.9L inline 6-cylinder engine, which by this time featured dual SU carburetors and air conditioning. It is mated to an automatic transmission. The outside is finished in a stunning hue, while inside the open-air interior are cream-toned leather upholstery and Burlwood trim accents and fold-down trays. The Spirit of Ecstasy hood mascot and a set of Firestone gum-dipped wide whitewall tires complete the appearance of this motorcar, and the sale will be accompanied with both reference books and the tool kit. With several awards won at event showings in years past, including a first place at the RROC National Meet in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1980, the car’s condition is self-evident. If you have considered the ownership of perhaps the most stylish and noteworthy name in fine British motorcars, this rare 1959 Mulliner-built Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I Drophead Coupe is an opportunity with few equals.
S89 1936 Auburn 852SC Boattail Speedster 35364A $850,000.00 $1,000,000.00 $1,017,500 €878,746 2% Grey over Tan leather. Distinguished by beautiful paint and brightwork and its signature “Flying Goddess” hood emblem, this Harbor Mist Gray 1936 Auburn 852 Boattail Speedster has been shown in such top venues as Pebble Beach, Amelia Island, Meadow Brook, Hershey and Glenmoor. A multiple-award winner over many years on the Concours circuit, the car retains the major original components—engine, body, very rare dual ratio rear end (1 of only 147 so-equipped in 1936) and chassis—and in 1996 was ACD certified by Paul Bryant, then head of certification for the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club. Soon thereafter, its owner commissioned LaVine Restorations of Nappanee, Indiana, to perform a comprehensive restoration. In 2006, it was again presented at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and in 2007 was awarded an AACA Senior National First Prize.
S90 2012 Dallara DW12 Honda Indycar 037 $1,175,000.00 $1,250,000.00 $1,127,500 €973,745 -4% Blue single seat racecar. The 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 justifiably received more hype, pomp and circumstance than any of the 99 editions that preceded this centennial celebration of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.” Only one car will ever be able to lay claim to capturing this historic event: the 2012 Dallara DW12 Honda Indy Car offered here. Rookie driver Alexander Rossi drove this distinctive blue and yellow NAPA machine for Andretti Herta Autosport with Curb Agajanian to a stirring victory that shocked the estimated crowd of more than 350,000 people. Honda’s contributions to this fabulous machine are significant, as the company spent millions developing a slippery Speedway aerokit that is fitted around the car’s carbon-fiber/Kevlar/composite chassis. Monocoque construction incorporates the cockpit, front suspension and 18.5-gallon rupture-proof fuel cell. A stressed member of the chassis, the engine is coupled to an Xtrac gearbox with six forward gears and paddle shifters. The rear assembly contains the bellhousing, gearbox and rear suspension members, while stopping power comes courtesy of Brembo carbon discs and pads. One of the coolest features on the machine are the Firestone Firehawk tires with special sidewalls that contain the names of all 66 previous drivers that raced to victory in the Indianapolis 500 on Firestone tires. All of this high-tech speed is wrapped up in a package that weighs a mere 1,590 pounds. The end result is a machine capable of averaging 230 MPH around the 2.5-mile oval track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For most of the afternoon on May 29, 2016, Rossi looked like a potential Rookie-of-the-Year (an award he also won), but to expect the then 24-year-old driver to win seemed to be too much to ask. Clever strategy and the talent to save fuel meant that what seemed a near impossibility became true, and as such, he became only the ninth first-year driver to ever win the race. Rossi stretched his final tank of fuel an amazing 36 laps to become a surprise winner and announce to the racing world that he had the skill to be a contender in America’s premier open-wheel series. In truth, most of the crowd had their eyes on Rossi’s teammates. And why not? With 2014 Indianapolis 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, veteran Townsend Bell and Indy specialist Carlos Munoz, the Andretti armada looked like a smart bet to win the 500. All three drivers had proven to be among the fastest on track all afternoon and most expected that one of these three would be drinking the milk at the end of the day. While his win was unexpected, Rossi did more than simply make his fuel last, he had been brilliant all afternoon, proving that he could make plenty of passes after an unscheduled pit stop near mid-race. Ultimately it was Rossi—not one of his more celebrated teammates—that set the fastest lap of the race at more than 225 MPH, proving he ultimately did have the speed to win. Although Dallara 037 was thoroughly updated with the new Honda aerokit and other assorted mechanical bits for the 2016 Indianapolis 500, it has a long and storied history in sport. It was raced in 2012 and 2013 by Alex Tagliani, in 2014 by Jack Hawksworth and in 2015 by Rookie-of-the-Year Gabby Chaves. Not only is this car a winning mount, but it also has the distinction of helping drivers capture two consecutive Rookie-of-the-Year awards, a fitting resume for a landmark machine. Sold on a Bill of Sale, Dallara 037 will forever have the distinction of being the only car to win the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500.

S92 1959 Mercedes-Benz 300D Cabriolet 189033129500367 $350,000.00 $450,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Dark Green over Black leather. The all-new Mercedes-Benz 300 of 1951 was a sizeable car that made a sizeable statement: we’re back. Simply, the flagship 300 saloon with an all-new engine re-established the marque at the very forefront of luxury motoring. Elegant, roomy and fast, there were few other options for those wishing to convey a complement of six passengers at sustained high speed; that was thanks to the seven-bearing overhead-cam 6-cylinder 3.0L engine that in modified form would go on to power the 300SL Gullwing. As well as the discerning super-rich, another who enjoyed the 300’s virtues was German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, who was so often spotted in different versions throughout his long tenure that the 300 was familiarly known as “The Adenauer.” It was in 1957 that the 300 reached its pinnacle with the much revised last-of-line 300D. Longer, roomier and with more contemporary face-lifted styling, it also gained the 300SL’s fuel-injection, very welcome power steering and an automatic transmission. In this incarnation, the 300 was good for 105-110 MPH. Although also produced from the outset as a four-door cabriolet (officially designated Cabriolet D throughout the series), a mere 65 cabriolets were handcrafted to special order on the ultimate 300D. The 1959 example from the Rick Davis Collection features an impressive array of standard equipment and factory options including power brakes, steering and windows, automatic transmission, wood trim, chrome-plated wheels and hubcaps, whitewall tires and, of course, the punchier fuel-injected engine good for 180 HP. Resplendent in lustrous dark green with white-accented black leather upholstery and a black soft top, its meticulous restoration received the accolade of Excellence Award Winner at Mar a Lago Concours d’Elegance in 2017. And here’s food for thought: the 300’s list price when new was in excess of both the 300SL Gullwing and later 300SL Roadster.

S93 1933 Duesenberg Model J Bohmann & Schwartz Disappearing Top Roadster 2421/J-386 $3,250,000.00 $3,500,000.00 $3,850,000 €3,324,983 10% Grey over Red leather and Beige top. At the time of their demise, Murphy was the most prolific creator of the Duesenberg convertible coupe, creating 60 of the 76 examples. Indeed, many Murphy design cues could be found on the more stylish Bohman & Schwartz interpretations. Only six convertible coupes were placed atop the supremely commanding 153.5-inch long wheelbase. Ultimately, only one of these, J-386/2421, would wear the prestigious Bohman & Schwartz name tag. The original owner of J-386/2421 was veteran stage and screen actress Marie Dressler, who won the 1930-31 Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in the movie “Min and Bill,” and was nominated for Best Actress again in 1932 for her role in “Emma.” Dressler appeared in more than 20 films between 1927 and the time she ordered this Duesenberg in 1933. She commissioned LeBaron to fit the chassis with an elegant seven-passenger convertible berline body well suited to the long wheelbase. Dressler passed away in 1934 from cancer and soon after, top-grossing film producer/director Roy Del Ruth (best known for directing “Blonde Crazy” and “The Maltese Falcon” in 1931, “Taxi” in 1932 and “The Little Giant” in 1933) acquired J-386 and, inspired by other examples of their artful designs and coachwork, commissioned Bohman & Schwartz to upgrade this Duesenberg into a most magnificent long-wheelbase convertible coupe of the disappearing-top style. The Bohman & Schwartz Disappearing Top Roadster makeover included skirting of the fenders; elongating the hood to the windshield, raising the deck and sculpting a tail to better conceal the fuel tank and chassis. In more recent times, the Bohman & Schwartz single-bar-design bumpers and bullet headlamps have been replaced with standard Model J fare, and a second tail light has added some bling. Surely, the car proudly positioned on movie back lots, polished side-pipes agleam in the California sun, must have assuaged any doubt that Del Ruth was at the top of his profession. This ACD Club-certified example has been documented by multiple well-respected Duesenberg historians: Fred Roe, Ray Wolff, Gerry Gebby, Don Butler, Dean Batchelor, J. Elbert, Keith Brown, Don Howell and Dennis Adler. In 2007, J-386 graced the lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance for special display and was not judged, lending the new owner an opportunity to unveil this Duesenberg Disappearing Top Roadster on the judging field. Its glamorous history, unquestioned provenance, rare long-wheelbase design and stunning condition make this a “Duesy” for the ages—one for only the most discriminating buyer

S95 2016 McLaren 675LT Spider SBM11SAAXGW675518 $290,000.00 $325,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Mantis Green over Black leather. One of just 500 produced, this 2016 McLaren 675LT Spider has been driven just 262 miles. McLaren Automotive itself describes the 675LT Spider as “the lightest, most driver-focused, most exclusive series-production McLaren supercar ever built,” that from the folks who brought you the now-legendary F1 and the hyper-hybrid P1, both cars that rewrote the rulebook when it comes to outright performance. Built on McLaren’s incredibly strong MonoCell carbon-fiber chassis, the 675LT Spider comes close to both where the rubber literally hits the road. Tighter and lighter than the 650S that preceded it, the 675LT’s twin-turbocharged 3.8L features intercooling, direct injection, dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder to churn out a devilish 666 HP at 7,100 RPM and 516 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 RPM, furious output that launches it to 60 MPH in 2.7 seconds and 205 MPH at its redline, all facilitated by McLaren’s own dual-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission. The “LT” part of the designation stands for the “Long Tail” air brake/spoiler that extends from the 675LT’s back end, just one element in an aerodynamic makeover that includes more aggressive front and rear diffusers, front-end plates and lower side intakes, all rendered in carbon fiber and producing 40-percent more downforce than the 650S, with the added benefit of improved engine cooling. Riding on 19- and 20-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero rubber, this Mantis Green 675LT employs Norma, Sport and Track modes for powertrain and suspension settings to suit all occasions, and lightweight carbon-ceramic brakes with matching green calipers. The cockpit combines taut black leather upholstery with contrasting green French stitching, carbon-fiber shift paddles, steering wheel and console trim, aluminum foot-pedal trim, Engine Start-Stop button and console-mounted switches for setting the various driving modes. It’s a fantastic environment for the ultimate driving experience.

As previously mentioned, each 2017 Ferrari produced as part of the 70th Anniversary Edition program is an entirely unique standalone model, including this exquisite Tailor Made California T retractable hardtop modeled after the legendary Ferrari 365 GTB “Daytona” launch combination. As enumerated on its custom dedication plate, its livery is a combination of code-666077 Blu Nart paint with matte black grilles and rear diffuser, “Scuderia Ferrari” shields, “70th Anni” badges, and wing mirrors, “Dreamline” trim and 20-inch alloy wheels in matte Argento Nürburgring. The Daytona theme repeats inside with fully electric Rosso Connolly leather Daytona-style seats with tone-on-tone stitching, black inserts and Prancing Horse emblems embroidered into the headrests. Rosso Connolly leather is also used on the headliner, lower dash panels, door and trim panels, while smooth and perforated black leathers finish off the upper dash and Manettino-equipped steering wheel. A yellow rev counter, HiFi sound system, electric inside mirror and Homelink, foldable rear-seat backrest, red carpets with Rosso Connolly edging and logos, aluminum pedals and footrest in Argento Nürburgring, and 20-inch wheels in Argento Nürburgring complete this California T’s Tailor Made specifications. Behind this wealth of special features is the California T’s superb performance, the result of its sophisticated twin-turbocharged 3.9L V-8, 7-speed F1 transmission and Handling Speciale package. Producing a heady 560 HP and 557 lb-ft of torque, the California T hits 60 MPH in just 3.6 seconds. Peak exclusivity combined with Ferrari style and performance make for an intoxicating experience in this one-of-one Tailor Made 2017 Ferrari California T.

Its cockpit offers an environment that can, without any stretch, be likened to that of a modern executive jet, cocooning occupants in form-fitting black leather seats with yellow piping and stitching. The steering wheel operates in F1 fashion, incorporating shift lights, ergonomic shift paddles and Manettino-actuated driving-mode selection. Both the steering wheel and pedals can be adjusted to suit the driver. The instrument panel’s secondary controls for audio, navigation, climate and Ferrari telemetry are located on the door and the center of the dashboard, placing the most important controls directly in front of the driver. A reconfigurable digital instrument panel gives the choice of a traditional central tachometer or a more competition-derived display. The LaFerrari’s sensational performance is already the stuff of legends, and it is all in the numbers: 0-60 MPH in 2.4 seconds, 124 MPH in less than 7 seconds and 0-186 MPH in an astounding 15 seconds. Reaching its top speed of 217 MPH is a sublime experience made all the better by the shriek of that wonderful V-12 engine. This cutting-edge Ferrari supercar is offered with every factory ancillary, including the car cover, battery charger, two-piece luggage set, books and keys, and all in pristine as-delivered condition.

Following in the contemporary tradition of each mid-engine model’s generation of the Challenge Stradale and 430 Scuderia, Ferrari again created a dedicated series to deliver outstanding performance in the 458 Speciale. This track-focused model features higher capability than the standard road-car specification by way of racing-derived technology through increased power, weight reduction, maximized aerodynamic efficiency and a more responsive transmission and suspension. The Speciale is the last of the naturally aspirated Ferrari V-8 engines with an incredible soundtrack that urges the driver to experience the 9,000 RPM crescendo with each shift of the F1 dual-clutch 7-speed transmission. Handling is enhanced by aerodynamic tuning of the body with active and passive devices, which increase downforce and stability at track speeds, while the Formula 1-derived Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes match the Speciale’s high-performance capability. The magnetic dampened suspension reacts to inputs in milliseconds with settings for road or track, managed by the rotating steering-wheel control. Overall weight is reduced by 200 pounds from the 458 Italia through extensive use of carbon-fiber and composites, thinner high-strength materials and by elimination of nonessential elements such as the road car’s traditional glovebox. This extremely low-mileage 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale awaits its next owner to enjoy it on the road, at the track or featured at exotic car shows.
S100 2015 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse Roadster VF9SV2C21FM795074 $2,000,000.00 $2,200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Silver over Taupe leather. Having climbed that next rung on the ladder to automotive Nirvana, in 2012, Bugatti unveiled the second-generation Veyron roadster, the Grand Sport Vitesse. Essentially a topless version of the Super Sport, it incorporates the same 7-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission, all-wheel-drive, computer-controlled all-independent wishbone suspension, active aerodynamics and aircraft-grade 4-wheel disc brakes. It also features the same improved cooling employed in the Super Sport to handle the W-16’s impressive thermal output. Bugatti produced a scant 150 bespoke copies of the Grand Sport Vitesse, including this magnificent 2015 example finished in a gleaming shade of silver that perfectly enhances the Veyron’s smoothly rounded contours. Riding on 20-inch chromed alloy wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport tires, its exquisite handcrafted interior offers rich taupe leather upholstery (with the exclusive Vitesse stitching pattern inspired by the Veyron’s ascending speed curve), a jewel-like engine-turned center panel and carbon-fiber door-panel and console trim. If the Bugatti Veyron is the ultimate grand-touring automobile, this Grand Sport Vitesse is arguably the grandest of them all.
S101 1999 Lamborghini Diablo VT Alpine Edition ZA9DU01B7XLA12265 $300,000.00 $350,000.00 $253,000 €218,499 -16% Blu Metallizzato over Snowcorn leather. Celebrating a very special, lengthy relationship between Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. and Alpine Audio, 12 special-edition Diablo VT Alpine Editions were built for the U.S. market. This car is No. 11 and has rolled only 7,915 miles since new. Powered by the 5.7L/523 HP DOHC V-12 engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission with a gated shifter, it features Brembo vented disc brakes, all-wheel-drive, climate control and power windows, among other amenities Diablos were known for. The striking blue exterior finish is contrasted by an interior of Snowcorn with blue piping and trim, with the optional OEM carbon-fiber gauge surround and center-stack treatment. Rolling on chrome special-edition OZ Wheels made specifically for the Alpine Edition, this car also features the SV-style rear wing with carbon-fiber wing flip. While the Alpine Editions received a few special aesthetic embellishments, the major enhancement was the use of Alpine’s top-of-the-line CVA-1005 head unit with integrated navigation system and DVD player, 6-disc CD changer and an arsenal of Alpine tweeters, midrange drivers and subwoofers powered by amplifiers badged “Lamborghini.” The Alpine logo emblazoned the headrests and floormats. In 1998, Audi acquired Lamborghini from MegaTech of Indonesia, a company owned by SEDTCO Pty., who bought the company from the Chrysler Corporation in 1994 for the price of about $40 million. With the hiring of Michael Kimberley as president and managing director, previously with Jaguar, Lotus and General Motors, efforts were put in place to broaden Lamborghini offerings, particularly to the American market. One facet of special importance was to raise awareness of Lamborghini’s heritage and mystique, which resurrected the SV moniker, the Jota name and, of course, the Alpine and MOMO Editions, both of which celebrated marques with which Lamborghini has long had coveted relationships. The efforts did not go unnoticed; sales climbed steadily, bolstering Lamborghini’s profits and providing additional capital to build additional offerings. As one of the first efforts to turnaround the Raging Bull—and with only 12 ever built—the Diablo Alpine Edition will forever remain a special Lamborghini.
S102 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing 198.040.5500154 $1,300,000.00 $1,400,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Fire Engine Red over Tan leather. This particular 300SL Gullwing presents beautifully in Fire Engine Red and features a tan leather interior with oatmeal-colored German square-weave carpet. Its matching-numbers engine shows only 30,534 miles on the odometer. Delivered in March 1955 to Brussels, Belgium, in European specification, the 300SL was equipped with the following equipment: a Becker radio, chrome bumper guards and dual Hella backup lights. The car retains evidence of its early build ancestry with two features. First, the fender wheel-arch eyebrows are bolted on versus welded on, like the later models. Second, it has the early Bendix Treadle-Vac brake booster. Only 1,400 300SL Gullwings were ever produced, and this one just happens to be an automotive icon of the highest pedigree.
S103 2015 McLaren P1 SBM12ABA9FW000330 $1,700,000.00 $1,800,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Dark Palladium Grey over Grey. When McLaren unveiled its incredible P1 hybrid supercar in 2012, the company’s literature described it as “the most exciting, capable, technologically advanced and dynamically accomplished super sports car ever made.” Indeed, real-world testing proved the McLaren P1 the most brilliant execution of hybrid powertrain and other cutting-edge technologies yet assembled in a road-going automobile. The very fact of the P1’s existence inevitably begged the question, “What next?” As if on cue, McLaren quickly responded with another question: “What do you want?” One answer comes in the form of this remarkable 2015 McLaren P1, production No. 330 of 375 produced and uniquely tailored with special-order factory components through McLaren’s proprietary Special Operations service. How to exceed such a magnificent realization of automobile as art? In this case, more than $114,000 in optional extras provided by McLaren Special Operations, beginning with Dark Palladium Grey paint on the carbon-fiber body and rear spoiler, accented with satin-finish carbon fiber on the various aero elements including the front splitter and rear diffuser. The same satin finish is seen on the P1’s interior trim and engine cover, which also carries a custom Red P1 logo. A 24-karat-gold engine heat-shield adds a space-mission look to the engine bay, and titanium wheel bolts trim ounces from the P1’s unsprung weight. Finished inside with satin-aluminum vent bezels, Carbon Black Alcantara carpets, painted switches and bezels and six-point harnesses, this McLaren P1 has traveled just 535 miles and is poised to deliver the ultimate in sheer motoring ecstasy.
S104 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition 1FAFP90S36Y400551 $500,000.00 $550,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue and Orange over Ebony leather. This 2006 Heritage Edition is a genuine supercar, a wonderful reimagining of the original GT40 capable of both civilized touring and reaching the upper limits of performance with a top speed of 205 MPH. This pristine example is not only well-equipped with Brembo vented disc brakes with gray-painted calipers, BBS forged alloy wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, stainless exhaust and a McIntosh AM/FM/CD stereo system, it also remains as it was on delivery day in 2006, retaining the the original window sticker and manuals, intact hang tags, the factory shipping decals still affixed to the windows, and its factory-original accessories.
S105 2010 Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir VF9SC2C27AM795238 $1,700,000.00 $1,800,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Red leather. The second phase, the Special Editions, involved in some cases inviting prominent artists and world-renowned design houses to participate directly in the creative process, with the Veyron as the recipient of their hands-on expression. The Sang Noir, in contrast, was an in-house creation conceived to explore “darker shades and tonalities,” the most striking result being this stunning jewel that is unique even by Bugatti standards. Showing just 3,401 miles, it is the only one of the 12-car Sang Noir series with a red interior, which in addition to offering uncommonly rich leather upholstery and artful alloy accents provides a bold exclamation point to the car’s arresting exterior finish. Lavishly appointed with hand-crafted upholstery on almost every surface, the cabin also features a navigation system with OLED display in the rearview mirror, Bluetooth connectivity, Airsystem automated climate control and a Burmester premium sound system. If exclusivity is paramount, this Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is the one and only answer.
S106 2015 Porsche 918 Spider WP0CA2A18FS800541 $1,800,000.00 $2,000,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Basalt Black over Onyx Black. The featured 918 Spyder—build 561 out of a total 918 units produced—is presented in Basalt Black paint highlighted with Acid-Green accents on the brake calipers and body badging. It has also been fitted with Martini livery paying homage to the Count Martini—the benefactor and sponsor of Porsche racing during the 1970s and ‘80s. The Onyx Black leather interior is also highlighted with Acid-Green accents on the seat belts, seats, door panels, headrests and the racy 12 o’clock marker on the steering wheel. This superb machine has been optioned with the $7,500 carbon-fiber interior package and the $10,500 front-axle lift system. With its removable roof panels, the 918 Spyder can be enjoyed either as an open-air machine or as a closed coupe. With a mere 855 original miles, this example of Porsche’s ultimate performance car looks nearly showroom new.
S107 2017 Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 ZHWUY5ZD4HLA06451 $2,750,000.00 $3,000,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Nero Alderbaran over Nero and Red leather. Hand-built in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, and barely touched at just 49 original miles, this 2017 Centenario is one of but a small handful built for delivery to the U.S., and of those, the only example finished in ominous Nero Alderbaran with red trim. It is nearly impossible to gaze upon this extraordinary machine and not imagine a spaceship that would put the Millennium Falcon to shame, its angry visage crouched low over the road as if poised to launch forward into hyperspace. At first glance it defies immediate visual assessment, the effect created by its extreme height-width ratio; the Centenario is 45 inches high and, not counting the mirrors, almost 7 feet wide. Both its monocoque chassis and sharp-edged body panels are rendered in carbon fiber, the styling and detailing signature Lamborghini cranked up to eleven. The exterior surfaces are punctuated with scoops and vents, their placement and angle of attack orchestrated to cut through the air like so many knives; the rear diffuser is as boldly stylized as it is efficient, and the 20-inch forged wheels feature carbon-fiber blades to channel cooling air past the ventilated and cross-drilled carbon-ceramic disc brakes.
S108 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series WDDRJ7HA8EA010874 $475,000.00 $550,000.00 $165,000 €142,499 -65% AMG Solarbeam Yellow over Black. Driven just 3,700 miles and optioned with AMG Solarbeam Yellow paint, a Black Series red-on-black interior with Bang and Olufsen sound, and Black Series Telematics, this 2014 SLS AMG Black Series certainly fits Ian Fleming’s description of the original 300SL: ruthless and majestic.
S109 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series WDBSK79F39F155847 $150,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Diamond White Metallic over Black leather. paint and showing 24,795 miles on the odometer, this 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series’ leather- and carbon-fiber-trimmed interior incorporates a redesigned instrument cluster, lap-time counter, multimedia center with navigation and the full complement of power accessories.
S110 2017 Ford GT 2FAGP9CW2HH200048 $1,700,000.00 $1,900,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Ingot Silver and Black over Black. While the GT was tasked first as a race car, it was also intended to advance Ford’s reputation for innovation in its production vehicles. While Ganassi Racing and billion-dollar automotive manufacturing giant Multimatic Engineering of Markham, Ontario, developed the racing-purposed GT, Ford engineers and designers worked to make the GT into a comfortable road car. This 2017 Ford GT, No. 48 of the 250 built to homologate the GT for FIA competition, showcases the extraordinary fruits of that two-track development process. 8 miles from new.
S111 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari 206523 $3,000,000.00 $3,300,000.00 $3,190,000 €2,754,986 Mid Rosso Corsa over Rosso leather. This immaculate 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari is the culmination of the Maranello firm’s most ambitious undertaking in the design and production of a road car, the first to incorporate hybrid technology directly from its GT and Formula 1 racing programs. Finished in Rosso Corsa with a Rosso interior and showing just 307 original miles, it is the product of an obsessive dedication to delivering the most extreme performance ever vested in a “production” Ferrari and features advanced technology that will eventually migrate to the rest of the Ferrari line.
S112 1958 Porsche 356A Super Cabriolet 150396 $200,000.00 $250,000.00 $209,000 €180,499 Mid Red over Black. This 1958 Porsche 356A Super Cabriolet is an elusive find, one of just 1,382 built that model year, as cited by Lothar Boschen and Jurgen Barth in “The Porsche Book: A definitive illustrated history.” Moreover, it is one of just a few units fitted across the entire 1958 Porsche 356 model production output fitted with Rudge wheels, a special road wheel mounted to the brake drum on a splined locating receiver and secured with a twin-prong wing nut/knock-off. This was offered as an expensive option on the Porsche 356 as well as the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. Equipped with the Super engine, this was the highest-output pushrod engine of its generation with 75 HP. The interior features black leather seats, German square-weave carpet, the optional VDM wood-rimmed steering wheel and a Blaupunkt pushbutton radio. Finished in period-correct red with a black cabriolet top, the Rudge wheels are color-keyed to the body and highlighted with chrome-center knock-offs. The 1958 model year featured the Type 2 series of Porsche. By 1958, some subtle yet significant styling changes had been applied to the 356. The tail lights were now teardrop shaped—as opposed to the predecessor twin-beehive style—and the rear illumination light bar was located underneath rather than above the license plate. Mechanical changes included the twin exhaust pipes exiting through the rear bumper guards—rather than beneath the rear bumper—adding greater ground clearance and a less cluttered rear-end appearance. From a mechanical perspective, the steering box was upgraded to a ZF worm-and-roller unit, and the floor pan was locally reinforced to accommodate seat belts. The 1958 Porsche 356A Super Cabriolet is an iconic design conceived by three of the greatest automotive engineers/designers of all time: Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, Ferry Porsche and Erwin Komenda
S113 1973 Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona Cut Coupe 15733 $700,000.00 $750,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso over Nero leather. Since the 1970s, Richard Straman has helped customers find the sun by removing hardtops from a number of cars ranging from Ferraris to Mercedes, with a dozen or more other brands sprinkled in between. His work began when the Ferrari 275 GTB/4 N.A.R.T. Spider ceased production after only 10 units were completed by Scaglietti. Customers turned to Straman to convert their cars into the more exciting, open-air variant Scaglietti produced. The work was exquisite and, as in all small communities, word spread very quickly about Straman’s gift of converting hardtops to convertibles. Soon he was working on more 275 GTB/4s and, in time, 365 GTB/4 Daytonas, Testarossas, Boxers and, more recently, 456s and 550 Maranellos. He was the go-to guy to make a fun car even more enjoyable, more exciting and even more exclusive. This 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona was converted in the 1970s and is an example of Straman’s genius. Boasting new wire wheels and a new black interior with Daytona seats sans headrests, it is equipped with a Becker radio, power windows, air conditioning and the Plexiglas nose reminiscent of early Daytonas. Long known for their quick acceleration and mindboggling top speeds, Daytonas employed an upgraded variant of the Columbo-designed V-12 engine that powered the 275 GTB and a long succession of Ferraris prior to that. For the 365, the revised V-12 featured larger valves, was enlarged to 4.4L and linked to a 5-speed manual transmission. The Pininfarina-designed body largely broke from tradition, featuring sharper, more angular edges and creases tempered by light curves and bows, as opposed to the more familiar curvaceous styling of previous generations. As the flagship car that would carry the brand into the 1970s, the sharper styling worked well and quietly started a styling trend leaning towards sharper angles and edges over curves. One of the most celebrated and recognizable Ferraris ever built, the Ferrari Daytona is still considered a benchmark in performance and styling today.
S114 2016 Porsche 911/991 GT3 RS WP0AF2A98GS192598 $225,000.00 $275,000.00 $242,000 €208,999 Mid Mexico Blue over Black and Silver. The Porsche GT3 has always been a focused “track-attack” machine that just happened to be street legal. These are cars built for the automotive enthusiast who places a premium on the sublime driving experience that delivers race-car capability in terms of acceleration, handling, braking and high-speed stability. As a follow-up to the already successful Porsche 911 GT3 991.1, the RS variant first appeared in 2016. Although built with many of the same parts and components of the GT3, the RS version is a significantly different car. The most obvious difference was the new body shell sourced from the 911 Turbo that provided major opportunities for aerodynamic and mechanical improvements. The wider rear fenders allowed for an increased rear track and wider tires. The rear-fender side scoops—originally used to feed the intercoolers on the Turbo—were now employed on the GT3 RS to serve as ram-air conduits to the naturally aspirated engine. The front fenders featured prominent extractor vents that served to evacuate the high pressure that builds up in the front wheel-well housing. The front splitter was fenced along its vertical leading edge, properly directing air-flow. The rear consisted of a “Gurney-flap” integrated into the rear decklid with a large overhead rear wing which had prominent side fences to prevent air spillage. The cumulative effect of these changes doubled the aerodynamic downforce of the RS over that of the GT3 and delivers a substantial increase to high-speed stability and grip. The mechanical changes over the GT3 included an increase in displacement and horsepower—4.0L/500 HP versus 3.8L/475 HP. This 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is finished in paint-to-sample Mexico-Blue fitted with 20-inch center-lock wheels. The interior is a contrasting black with gray inserts. The car has only 521 original miles and is factory equipped with a PDK transmission, carbon-ceramic disc brakes, limited-slip differential, active suspension, air conditioning and the Sport Chrono package.
S115 2012 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport VF9SK2C25CM795051 $1,700,000.00 $1,800,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black and Red over Cognac leather. The ninth of just 11 examples produced for the U.S. market, this 2012 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport 16.4 is a sterling example of the world’s pre-eminent supercar that shows just 850 miles since new. Since its introduction in 2005, the Bugatti Veyron has unquestionably dominated its realm, an engineering work of high art signifying the most advanced of modern material, aerodynamic and thermodynamic management techniques. After a design and development period fraught with unprecedented challenges, the Veyron astonished the motoring world with performance that literally surpassed every other exotic high-performance machine on Earth, wielding a quadruple-turbocharged 1,001 metric HP 8.0L W-16 engine, a dual-clutch 7-speed paddle-shifted DSG transaxle and all-wheel-drive, enormous aerospace-derived carbon-ceramic disc brakes and active aerodynamics. More than an instrument of sheer speed, however, the Veyron was designed from the start to be a luxury road car suitable for everyday use, drawing on Bugatti tradition for its distinctive exterior design and opulent interior accommodations. via RM Amelia ’17 $1.65 mil.
S116 2018 McLaren 720S Luxury Launch Edition SBM14DCA0JW000557 $350,000.00 $375,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White over Brown. Like all 400 Luxury Launch Editions, this 1,926-mile Glacier White example is a bespoke automobile built to exacting specifications. The second car in McLaren’s so-called Super Series and the designated successor to the 650S, the 720S is as wild as anything McLaren has ever built for the road, with sensuously contoured body work capped by a tapered canopy and imaginative detailing inspired by the world’s greatest hunting machine, the Great White Shark. One of the key details of the exterior design is the absence of body-side radiator intakes; the cooling function is performed instead by channels running from the nose through the unique double-skinned dihedral doors to the rear side-mounted radiators. A unique optional extra is the pair of Gorilla Glass panels on the tops of the wide-opening doors.

S117 1965 Ferrari 275GTB Long nose 275GTB06943 $1,900,000.00 $2,200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Gordon Raymond of Northfield, Illinois, has owned this 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB—Serial No. 06943—for 47 years. That’s a long time by any measure, but there is almost always a significant story behind such long-term ownership, and in this case, it’s the fact that Raymond credits the car with saving his life. He purchased the Ferrari, a North American-specification car that has always resided in the U.S., from its original owner—a snow-skiing instructor—in 1970. A lifelong admirer of the great Italian marques, Raymond also owned a 500 Testarossa and several Alfas, and he became a regular competitor at Road America. But in 1981, misfortune struck; while driving the 275 GTB near his home, Raymond was involved in a head-on collision that he believes would have taken his life were it not for the car’s famously robust construction. Still, his injuries were enough to keep him in the hospital for 14 months. Early in his convalescence, Raymond resolved to have his beloved Ferrari repaired to the “long nose” configuration employed by the original owner—the car as sold was originally a “short nose.” The decision was not an entirely uncommon practice at the time; the popularity of the long-nose 275 GTB prompted many such conversions, but few owners went the same route as Raymond, who purchased a brand-new long-nose front end directly from Scaglietti for the then-princely sum of $19,000. To ensure the work was completed to Ferrari factory standards, Raymond enlisted renowned restoration experts Josef Neumayer and Michael Gabler of North Shore Auto Rebuilders in Chicago to perform the repairs and conversion. Upon leaving the hospital, Raymond commenced a restoration that is ongoing to this day. A meticulous craftsman, he has a well-earned reputation for artfully hand-fabricating replacement parts for vintage Ferrari and Alfa Romeo race cars, a skill he has applied to his beloved Ferrari to nearly flawless results. Classically finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero leather interior (complete with the original FIA suitcase straps in the rear storage shelf), the car retains its original matching-numbers triple-carburetor V-12 engine and rides on chromed Borrani wire wheels shod with Michelin XWX radial tires. Raymond has performed a number of upgrades over the years, adding an upgraded master cylinder for the 4-wheel disc brakes, a full-length TUBI exhaust system, F40 Competition safety harnesses and, recently, a new steering box. In addition to the never-used original tool kit and a full set of original factory books and manuals, the car comes with many spares, including a second windshield, two sets of Campagnolo Starburst alloy wheels and an extensive inventory of extra parts, some custom-built out of brass by Raymond himself. Yes: it is a timeless classic and a sensational restoration, but nothing can recommend this marvelous Ferrari 275 GTB more than its 47-year history with a passionate owner who has invested every one of those years retaining its nearly flawless condition.

S118 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible 194679S726291 $550,000.00 $650,000.00 $451,000 €389,498 -18% CanAm White over Saddle. Designed to dominate SCCA and FIA competition, the Chevrolet Corvette L88 burst onto the scene in 1967, immediately laying waste to the opposition and beginning a three-year run of supremacy that earned the car lasting status as the ultimate Corvette. Chevrolet’s claimed output figures of 430 HP at 5,200 RPM and 460 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM were both intended to mislead interested but uninformed buyers into thinking it was the lesser of the two most powerful big-blocks offered that year. The diversion was just one element in the Division’s concerted effort to keep the L88 out of the wrong hands and off the public roads where liability was a very real concern; in fact, when opened up with the addition of long-tube headers and not choked by the factory mufflers, the L88 cranked out closer to 560 HP at 6,400 RPM and 470 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 RPM. It was in essence a pure racing engine packaged with all the components needed to make it a viable competitor against any challenger, either foreign or domestic, a fact that prompted the test editors at “Hot Rod” magazine to declare in 1969 that using one on the street would be “sacrilegious.” Verified by prominent Corvette authorities David Burroughs and Tim Thorpe as the genuine article, this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible has earned Bloomington Gold certification, NCRS Performance Verification and the highly coveted NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence, one of the highest accolades in the Corvette collector community. One of only 116 built in 1969, the car shows just 46,000 miles. It is finished in Can Am White with a Saddle interior and comes with both soft top and hardtop. In addition to its matching-numbers 427/430 HP engine and 4-speed, like all other L88 Corvettes it is also equipped with F41 Special Suspension, J56 Special Heavy Duty Brakes and Positraction. Documentation includes the original tank sticker, which is still located on top of the fuel tank.
S119 2011 Porsche 911/997GT2 RS WP0AE2A94BS778128 $375,000.00 $425,000.00 $423,500 €365,748 Mid Guards Red over Red and Black. Extreme is the one word that aptly describes the 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Incredibly fast with a factory-rated top speed of 209 MPH, this thrill-ride makes a robust 620 HP from its twin-turbocharged 3.6L engine that has been tuned to the same specification as the Porsche GT1 prototype Le Mans-winning race car. This machine was built with one goal in mind: to reassert Porsche’s dominance of engineering excellence by putting itself atop the Nürburgring lap-time hierarchy by eclipsing the lap record time set by the famed Porsche Carrera GT supercar in a sort-of super 911-based road car. Race-car performance was proven by lapping the challenging Nürburgring in a record-shattering 7 minutes, 18 seconds. With only 500 examples produced in 2011, the 911 GT2 RS uses a simple recipe for its success: take an existing 997 Turbo, add the GT3 RS suspension and brakes, install the GT1-inspired racing engine and then ruthlessly reduce the weight of the car. The drastic weight-reduction program that pares this machine down to a trim 3,050 pounds is accomplished following deletions and substitutions; the all-wheel-drive system has been extricated and replaced with rear-wheel-drive only, the rear seats have been removed, the standard front seats have been replaced with lightweight sport seats, the front fenders have been replaced with carbon-fiber units, multiple aluminum suspension bits have replaced their steel counterparts, and new lightweight wheels are fitted. This GT2 RS is finished in Guards Red with platinum-colored center-lock wheels and a carbon-fiber hood, front splitter and rear wing. The interior is finished in black leather with red Alcantara accents on the seats, door panels, steering wheel and shift knob, as well as a carbon-fiber interior trim package. The car presents in superb condition with only 4,680 original miles and comes autographed by Porsche legends Hurley Haywood and Peter Schutz.
S120 1936 Cadillac Roadster 6010022 $550,000.00 $650,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Indian Inkwell Blue over Black. The artisanship of true coachbuilding is often considered a lost art, and it is therefore fitting that the stunning vehicle offered here is named for the fictional paradise of Shangri-La. Under the direction of skilled car-builder Rick Dore, this hand-formed roadster whose origins are noted as a 1936 Cadillac makes use of modern mechanical technology coupled with body accents that harkens back to the legendary prewar European coach firms and designers. To that end, this exclusive offering features a hand-formed aluminum body fabricated to Dore’s specifications by Marcel DeLay of Marcel’s Custom Metal in Corona, California, covering a 116-inch wheelbase Art Morrison chassis that features coil springs on all four corners. From the swelling rise of the front fenders, the body lines flow gracefully rearward, leaving the impression of grand-touring performance even when sitting still, and all of it rendered in the Art Deco streamlining style of the late 1930s. A noteworthy touch was the large-diameter headlamps for an Old Continent appeal. However, under the expansive hood and exquisitely reworked grille is a GM 380 HP Ram Jet V-8 engine, uniquely modified to allow for a side-mount-design throttle body. A 1940 Lincoln air cleaner was adopted under the hood as well. Behind this engine is a GM 700R4 overdrive automatic transmission for driving enjoyment. Of course, it is the visual appeal of this vehicle that draws attention. Shangri-La features a removable brushed-metal roof, custom-fabricated brass and chrome-plated trim and moldings, a one-off curved windshield and magnificently executed paint using custom-blended PPG Indian Ink-Well Blue applied by Cambra Speed Shop in Orange, California. Once inside, passengers are treated to a fully custom interior created by Ron Mangus, and the finishing touch was Ron Francis wiring. Riding on wide whitewall tires and multi-spoked chrome wheels, the Shangri-La roadster is the noted winner of the Charley Hutton Paint Award, and has the design, desire and exclusivity to earn this name.

All these qualities inform the magnificent 208 Bugatti Veyron presented here in beautiful two-tone gold and beige Metallic paint with a premium interior dominated by fine taupe leather, specially developed aluminum-alloy trim and the distinctive steering wheel and center console with controls for the Burmeister premium sound system. As both automobile and objet d’art, the Veyron 16.4 is unmistakably a Bugatti in the tradition of Le Patron.
S122 1973 Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona 16109 $625,000.00 $675,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Giallo Fly over Nero leather. One of 1,422 built from 1968 through 1973 (including 122 Spyders and 16 competition versions), this Ferrari Daytona coupe was produced in August 1972. It received a professional nut-and-bolt restoration in the 1990s, won the Ferrari Concours Platinum Award in 1998, and has been part of private collections since 1999. At 48,834 miles, the car retains its original 4.4L DOHC V-12 engine and 5-speed gearbox, and has been driven approximately 8,000 miles since its restoration. In addition to its rebuilt engine and drivetrain, the car boasts beautiful yellow paint and a contrasting black leather interior, air conditioning, power windows and sharp Borrani chromed-wire wheels with three-bar knock-off fasteners. Offered with a tool roll and owner’s manual, this is a superbly maintained example of one of Ferrari’s greatest road cars.
S123 1910 Locomobile Model 40 Type I Demi-Tonneau 2376 $450,000.00 $550,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue over Black leather. RHD. Not long after the turn of the 20th century, the “Best Built Car in America” carried the name Locomobile. At the time one of the most expensive and elegant automobiles manufactured in the United States, the Locomobile became the favored conveyance of the East Coast aristocracy and the West Coast/Hollywood elite, including Charlie Chaplin, Tom Mix and Cecil B. DeMille. The Locomobile had its birth in the takeover of the fledgling Stanley Motor Carriage Company by “Cosmopolitan” magazine publisher John Brisben Walker in 1899. Walker’s subsequent partnership with his neighbor, Amzi Lorenzo Barber, soon fell apart; both went on to build and sell practically identical cars whose design had originated with the Stanley Brothers, but it was Walker’s version, the Locomobile, that went on to success. With a company slogan of “Easily the Best Built Car in America,” Locomobile experienced great success on the race track from 1905-1908, when George Robertson piloted “Old 16” to victory at the Vanderbilt Cup in 1908. The next year, Locomobile entered no further racing contests and retired from competition as a winner. This Locomobile four-passenger Demi-Tonneau was built on the Model Type 40 I chassis, which is the rarest and most desirable model type. Commonly referred to as a “Toy-Tonneau” or “Baby-Tonneau” the body style is defined as a four-passenger coachwork with low profile and fitted to a shorter, sport chassis. With a 40 HP inline-4 engine on a 123-inch wheelbase, the Model I was the fastest model produced by Locomobile during the early 1900s “Brass” period. Collector Walter McCarthy purchased the car in the late 1960s, maintaining it in his collection for three decades. Richard King acquired the car from Walter in the 1990s and then restored it for the 2004 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. In 2007, it was acquired from Richard King by a private collector. Resplendent in beautifully restored coachwork, this Locomobile is a marvelous example that characterizes the essence of what these automobiles represent; power, beauty and excitement. It has received many prestigious awards, including second in class at Pebble Beach 2007 and first in class at Meadow Brook 2010.
S124 2016 Porsche 911/991R WP0AF2A93GS195134 $375,000.00 $400,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White and Orange over Black. This 2016 Porsche 911 R sports only 180 original miles and has an eye-watering $60,000 in options that include such features as a custom-tailored interior, front-axle lift, Sport Chrono package and a Bose sound system. The 911 R is a wicked machine equipped with the 4.0L/500 HP direct-fuel-injected engine directly sourced from the 911 GT3 RS. The carbon-ceramic 4-wheel disc brakes are also shared with the 2016 GT3 RS. However, beyond these two mechanical common denominators, the two cars are very divergent in personality. Where the GT3 RS is an absolute extrovert that relies on advanced aerodynamics and uber sophistication, the 911 R is the embodiment of stark simplicity and minimalism, giving it an understated presence but packing stunning performance attributes. The 911 R is the spiritual successor to the 1967 911 R, Porsche’s first purpose-built 911-based race car. It weighed in at 350 pounds less than a stock 911 and was fitted with a 2.0L twin-plug engine pulled from the 906 race car. The original 911 R equation is so simple: less weight plus more horsepower equals one fast car. The 911 R subscribes to this same ethos, as it is a significant 110 pounds lighter than the GT3 RS and has less aerodynamic drag as a result of being built on the narrow-body 911 shell. Other weight-saving measures include a lightweight magnesium roof skin, carbon-fiber front fenders and 20-inch alloy wheels. The 911 R came with a specially built 6-speed manual gearbox and forgoes flashy aerodynamic appendages. With a total production run of only 991 units, owners of the Porsche 918 Spyder were given the first right of refusal for purchase of a 911 R. Rarely seen on either the private sales and auction scenes, one can safely assume that many 911 R still share the same garage space with a 918 Spyder.
S125 2017 Ferrari F12TDf 220566 $1,000,000.00 $1,250,000.00 $1,045,000 €902,495 Mid Rosso over Nero alcantara. This 2017 Ferrari F12tdf is powered by a 6.3L V-12 engine that produces 769 HP, an amazing output of 2 HP per cubic inch of displacement with naturally aspirated induction. One of a mere 799 produced, this fabulous machine is just past the break-in stage with only 1,157 miles on the odometer. The moniker “tdf” is an acronym for Tour de France, a race that Ferrari won with remarkable regularity from 1956-64. Just as the “tdf” name pays homage to the rich motorsports history of the prancing-horse brand from Maranello, the Ferrari F12tdf is the intended spiritual successor to the 275 GTB that was first introduced in 1964. The 275 GTB was a V-12-powered Berlinetta with a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout. It was the first Ferrari to use a rear-mounted transaxle mated to the front engine via a torque tube to produce ideal front-to-rear weight distribution. Such is the case with the F12tdf that uses that same basic design architecture. With a dry weight of only 3,120 pounds, the F12tdf has an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 4.05 to 1, enabling a top speed of 211 MPH and a standing start to a 60 MPH in just 2.9 seconds. Ferrari has generously applied its Formula 1 technology into the F12tdf with its 7-speed dual-clutch automated semi-automatic gearbox activated via paddle shifters, magnetorheological suspension, electronic limited-slip differential, carbon-ceramic disc brakes with ABS, and F1-Trac traction control. Just like a Formula 1 car, the F12tdf has controls for the stability, traction, suspension and other settings controlled by the Manettino dial mounted in the center of the steering wheel. This drop-dead gorgeous Rosso F1 Ferrari F12tdf features more than $92,000 in additional options, including the $10,124 Ferrari Telemetry package.
S126 1989 Porsche 962 108C-2 $2,000,000.00 $2,500,000.00 $2,200,000 €1,899,990 Mid Gold and White Miller livery. Chapman then built a second honeycomb tub, named CO2, for 962-108. At the same time, Busby’s old drag-racing friend, engine wizard Ed Pink, was extracting more power from the turbocharged flat-6. Pink back-engineered the Bosch Motronic injection system’s controls and performed some internal tweaks, raising output more than 80 HP to upwards of 830 HP. Busby’s Pink-equipped racers made so much power that IMSA soon mandated restrictor plates on all the 962 Porsches. Busby and company finally completed the car, then titled 962-108B in time for the 1987 Daytona 24 Hours. Driven by Busby, Daron Brassfield and Bob Wollek, it retired with engine failure after 89 laps. It remained well in contention for the rest of the season, however, scoring second, third, fourth and two sixth places, but in the August 2 race at Sears Point with Wollek at the wheel, it crashed while in the lead when the right rear tire exploded entering Turn 1, once again damaging the bodywork and tub. Rebuilt with a third Chapman tub and rechristened 962-108C, the car arrived at Daytona in January 1988 in fresh BF Goodrich livery. Daytona newcomer Mauro Baldi put 962-108C on the pole and shared driving duties with endurance aces Wollek and Brian Redman. The team set the pace for the entire field, ultimately finishing in second place a mere 1:48 behind the No. 60 Jaguar. It was a disappointing result for the crew whose car had started from the pole and hammered the field for most of the race, but it was an impressive return for 108C, and more success was on the way. Development continued. Rear subframe bracing and suspension revisions improved stability and handling, while Gurney Eagle designer Roman Slobodynskj ordered 956-style front bodywork and other changes to increase aerodynamic efficiency. Engine development was also paying dividends, ensuring the Busby Porsches would remain competitive against the Jaguars and insurgent Electramotive Nissan team. Wollek scored two thirds (one with Baldi co-driving), a fourth and two fifth-place finishes over the course of the 1988 season. The Jaguar and Nissan factory teams had hit their stride, and finding an edge for 1989 was an urgent priority for Busby and crew. With Pink’s engine program bearing more fruit, it was again time to turn to aerodynamics. 108C was radically revised with more front-end sculpting and rear bodywork obviously inspired by the Nissans that had dominated the previous season. The most distinctive change was at the rear, where the standard upswept tail gave way to large, flat side-fences to maximize the downforce generated by the rear diffuser. Testing against a sprint-specification factory Shell Dunlop Lightweight 962C showed impressive results from these changes, with 108C running 1.75 seconds per lap quicker at Lime Rock and 2.5 seconds quicker at Road America. The 1989 Daytona victory in hand, on April 23, 1989, Wollek and Andretti drove the newly designated 962-108C-2 to the only other Porsche victory in IMSA that year against the prodigious Electramotive Nissans. A number of third-, fourth-, fifth- and sixth-place finishes were capped by winning the 1989 Porsche Cup USA. Chassis No. 962-108C-2 was retired at the end of the season and for many years enjoyed a pampered life in a private collection. In 2005, it became a prized centerpiece of the world-class Historic Porsche Collection in England and was immediately reunited with Bell at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The two appeared together again in 2007 at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, where Bell was the guest of honor. Later that year for Porsche North America, they appeared at Redman’s wonderful Rennsport 3 celebration and at Daytona, starring during display laps with the new Porsche RS Spyder. One of the most popular Porsche 962 racers in the model’s celebrated history and the fastest of them all, 962-108C-2 was driven by some of the greatest talents of the day, including Jim Busby, Rick Knoop, Mauro Baldi, Bob Wollek, Derek Bell, Jochen Mass, John Andretti, Brian Redman and Daron Brassfield. Still festooned in the famous gold, green and white Miller livery, 962-108C-2 is an icon from an exciting era in American motorsports and Daytona history. Offered by Mecum several times but never sold.
S127 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider 151053 $175,000.00 $200,000.00 $187,000 €161,499 Mid Rosso over Tan leather. This F430’s 170 actual miles are evident in its impeccably great condition. Its Rosso Corsa paint and tan leather interior are a time-honored combination that remain a favorite with Ferrari enthusiasts, and are nicely complemented with Scuderia fender shields, red brake calipers and factory ball-polished alloy wheels fitted with Bridgestone Potenza tires. Opening the fold-down top reveals typical first-class materials and craftsmanship in the F430 cockpit that features Daytona-style power bucket seats, F1-inspired driver controls and carbon-fiber accents. This fabulous F430 Spider promises its new owner the exhilaration and sheer joy of Ferrari-style motoring.
S128 1934 Ford Roadster Hotrod 18-909444 $75,000.00 $85,000.00 $66,000 €57,000 -12% Black over Tan leather. Built by Hot Rods and Hobbies in Torrance, California, this 1934 Ford Roadster is quite a car, one that has collected a number of prestigious awards including First in Class at the National Roadster Show and an Award of Excellence at Goodguys in Del Mar, California. Powered by a Corvette 350 CI V-8 engine with Tuned Port Injection mated to a 700R4 automatic transmission, the black roadster is truly a work of art that combines the sensibilities of modern Street Rod styling with the traditional Hot Rod look that has stood the test of time. Mounted on independent suspension front and rear, the rakish stance on the extended wheelbase is amplified by staggered-size billet wheels, narrow 15-inch at the front and deep-dish 17-inch at the rear, with tires sized at P195/60R front and P305/45R rear. All metal suspension components have been polished for a finished look underneath. Wilwood disc brakes handle the stopping at all four corners. The roadster body incorporates the classic 1934 Ford styling cues, including wide and flowing fenders/running boards that span the full length of the car, a billet grille flanked by independently mounted headlights, and a rounded rear end with wide trunk opening and small red tail lights. A hideaway bracket tucks the license plate cleanly out of view when the roadster is stationary. Contrasting nicely with the black exterior paint is the tan interior that features leather seat upholstery and door panels, tilt steering column, Budnik leather-wrapped billet steering wheel, a carbon-fiber-covered floor console, a cluster of five Classic Instruments’ gauges in the center of the dash and billet door handles, pedals and shifter. Driven only 1,857 miles since the build completion, this 1934 Roadster Street Rod is ready for either cruising or competing for additional awards at prestigious Street Rod shows
S129 1974 BMW 2002 Turbo 4290376 $175,000.00 $200,000.00 $170,500 €147,249 -3% Charmonix White over Black. This 1974 BMW 2002 Turbo is an incredibly well-turned-out example of the iconic limited-production sports sedan and comes armed with extensive documentation including a full chain of custody, service records, restoration records and parts itemization records since new, all supported by the BMW Historical Certificate. This 2002 Turbo has been attended to by the finest marque experts in terms of maintenance, repair and restoration. Finished in the factory-correct color of Chamonix White with a matching-numbers engine, this desirable machine has been the recipient of multiple concours and BMW-meet awards. First introduced in 1973 at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the 2002 BMW Turbo was an immediate sensation. A turbocharger in concert with the Kugelfischer mechanical fuel-injection unit elevated the horsepower of the stout 2002tii engine by more than 30 percent. The body modifications made a bold statement with their riveted fender flares, wide offset wheels mounted on low-aspect-ratio tires and BMW motorsports graphics, with the most outrageous being the reverse ”2002 Turbo” script emblazoned on the front air dam announcing its presence in the rearview mirror of the driver ahead of you. These cars have always had a cult following and icon status in the collector-car world. A total of 1,672 examples were built during the two-year production run and they were excluded from importation into the U.S., making them an elusive find for the discerning collector. A 4-speed manual transmission was available, but this particular BMW was equipped from the factory with a dog-leg 5-speed close-ratio manual transmission. The addition of period correct three-piece BBS modular wheels intensify its original character. The car has undergone a comprehensive restoration by Casey Motorsports in Petaluma, California, with close attention paid to mechanicals

S131 2018 Porsche 911/991 GT3 WP0AC2A98JS175171 $195,000.00 $225,000.00 $214,500 €185,249 Mid Grey over Black leather. Offered in factory-fresh condition with a mere 260 original miles, this 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 will stir the senses of any dedicated Porsche enthusiast and make converts of those not yet exposed to the charms of this storied marque. After disappointing some purists with the decision to offer only the 7-speed automatic in earlier GT3 models, Porsche brought back its 6-speed manual gearbox as a no-cost option for 2018, a choice that puts the driver in closer touch with the car’s formidable 4.0L flat-6 engine. With an aluminum block forming the basic unit, the naturally aspirated 4.0L powerplant was completely reworked for 2018. In addition to dry-sump oiling, a stronger crank, wider bearings, iron-coated cylinders and titanium connecting rods, it features new aluminum heads and a two-stage variable intake system feeding direct fuel injection. The result: 500 HP at 8,250 RPM and 339 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 RPM driving the electronically controlled limited-slip differential and delivering the GT3 to 60 MPH in a scant 3.4 seconds. To haul it down from speeds up to its 198 MPH maximum, this GT3 sports the optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes with yellow-painted calipers clamping on drilled and vented rotors. The GT3’s highly developed aerodynamics and dynamic chassis tuning work hand in hand to produce stunning handling and grip at any speed. The combination produces excellent pitch, roll and directional stability and extraordinary steering precision. Toe angle, camber and anti-roll bars can also be adjusted individually for the track, allowing the driver to take full advantage of the Michelin Pilot Sport tires mounted on Silver 20-inch forged-alloy center-lock wheels. A red stripe delineates the steering wheel’s 12-o’clock position in modern racing style, but long-distance comfort is also built into this GT3 in the form of leather and Alcantara upholstery and the optional Chrono Package. This is the 911 that will make an enthusiast’s heart beat like never before.
S132 2007 Ferrari 599GTB 154620 $140,000.00 $175,000.00 $137,500 €118,749 -2% Rosso Corsa and Nero over Nero leather. Offered with only 11,574 miles since new and with a documented history and service records, this 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is an excellent example of the car that served as Ferrari’s V-12 flagship from 2007 to 2012. Named after Ferrari’s fabled private test track, the Fiorano featured an extruded aluminum chassis, active aerodynamics, magnetorheological shock absorbers and predictive traction control. Powered by the 6.0L/612 HP DOHC V-12 engine derived from the mighty Enzo and mated to an improved version of Ferrari’s own F1 6-speed paddle-shifted transaxle, the Fiorano is capable of astonishing performance, with a 0-60 MPH time of 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 205 MPH. The $18,550 optional carbon-ceramic disc brakes add supernatural stopping power to this Fiorano’s already impressive resume. Finished in Rosso Corsa paint with tinted tail lights and removable matte-black film on the roof, this 2007 Fiorano incorporates a unique and attractive two-tone black over beige leather interior comprising black seats with beige stitching, a beige lower dash panel, and black/beige door panels, console and rear shelf. In addition to the original factory-installed radio and sound system, it is further optioned with red-painted brake calipers, rear parking sensors, “Scuderia” cloisonné fender shields and red instrument dials. In 2012, the car was fitted with new 22-inch-diameter ADV-1 alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero run-flat 265/30/ZR22 front and 305/30ZR22 rear tires; the original factory 20-inch wheels are included and the roof wrap can be removed if the new owner so desires. The car is offered with a set of nine different service and ownership books in the leather carrying pouch, including the original warranty card showing the first owner and selling dealer. The tool kit, factory car cover, steering-wheel and seat covers, and the factory battery tender are also included, along with a clean CarFax. A well-cared-for, properly serviced and documented example, this 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is ready for its new owner to enjoy.
S132.1 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight 911 360 1014 $1,300,000.00 $1,500,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Tangerine over Black. This 1973 Porsche Carrera RS 2.7—one of just 200 M471 “Lightweight” versions produced—is an icon of Porsche performance, and as such, it is regarded by many enthusiasts as the ultimate 911. The Porsche Carrera RS 2.7 was conceived as a pure homologation special necessitating a minimum production output of 500 examples to qualify it for participation in Group 4 GT racing. Ultimately, Porsche would produce a cumulative total of 1,580 Carrera RS 2.7 cars offered in two flavors, the M472 Touring model and the M471 “Lightweight” sport model. The Carrera RS 2.7 recipe was simple in concept: add more horsepower, dramatically reduce the vehicle weight, improve the high-speed aerodynamic stability and tune the suspension for tenacious grip. The M471 “Lightweight” embodies the pure distilled essence of the Carrera RS ethos tipping the scales at a svelte 2,150 pounds, as compared to its brethren M472 at 2,370 pounds and its sister 911S at 2,550 pounds. This quantum weight loss entailed using thinner-gauge steel in the fenders, doors and hood, substituting lightweight fiberglass in lieu of steel on the engine lid and the front and rear bumpers, and converting to a lighter and thinner Glaverbel window glass. Additional amenities were removed to achieve ultimate lightness, such as the deletion of sound-deadening material and the complete removal of the back seat, clock, glovebox door, passenger-side sun visor, door pockets and armrests. A larger-displacement 2.7L engine was developed and fitted with mechanical fuel injection. The body changes include flared rear-fender arches to accept wider rear wheels, a front chin spoiler and the RS signature ducktail rear spoiler. This Tangerine Orange RS has an esteemed rally-racing history dating back to 1976-80, and it comes complete with a factory-issued Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, maintenance record, technical-specifications book and a tool roll.
S133 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster 875534 $250,000.00 $350,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Beige leather and top. Produced on September 14, 1961, and dispatched to the U.S. on October 2 of the same year, this early production 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I is one of the first 2,086 left-hand-drive Series I E-Types with flat floor pans and welded hood louvers, features that set it apart as among the most desirable of all E-Types. The Jaguar E-Type stunned visitors to the 1961 Geneva Auto Salon, who were treated to the sight of a lithe, smoothly sculpted coupe set on a huge oriental rug. Like the XK120 that stole the show at Earl’s Court in 1948, the new E-Type was a giant leap forward, surpassing even contemporary Ferraris in its technical specifications. Its basic engineering evolved straight from the D-Type sports racer: a central monocoque with front and rear subframes, independent front suspension and outboard front disc brakes, and the double-overhead-cam inline-6 engine and 4-speed manual transmission that were central to Jaguar’s enviable competition record. The E-Type went two steps further, however, employing independent rear suspension and inboard disc brakes to minimize unsprung weight. The E-Type also borrowed its sensuous bodywork from the D-Type, both cars having been designed by aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer. Body No. R 1611, the 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I offered here is an unrestored, highly original car that has traversed its 84,100 miles in the car-friendly climes of Nevada and California. It has been in the care of just two owners, the second having preserved it for more than 50 years. It retains its matching-numbers 3.8L inline 6-cylinder engine employing triple SU side-draft carburetors and mated to a Moss 4-speed gearbox with non-synchromesh first gear. Beautifully finished in black with a black soft top and contrasting white interior, this is a well-maintained Series I with a lovely patina throughout, the only known alterations being an aluminum radiator with electric fans, replacement exhaust pipes and a Pioneer AM/FM/CD radio.
S134 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback 0F02Z129806 $300,000.00 $350,000.00 $302,500 €261,249 Mid Coral over Black. One of 500 built for 1970 by Ford contractor Kar Kraft and one of just 76 produced in Calypso Coral with a black interior, this 1970 Boss 429 Mustang, KK No. 2340, has received a thorough rotisserie restoration to factory-original condition, including the hard-to-find Thermactor emissions system. Notably, the rare SportsRoof is powered by its matching-numbers Boss 429 engine that has been rebuilt with a .030-inch overbore, NASCAR rods and balancing by Thunder Valley Motorsports in Minneapolis, with dyno testing and test miles handled by J&J Engine. The chrome—including the original Magnum 500 wheels—has been refinished and treated to triple chrome plating. The glass is new old stock all around, and the popular rear spoiler and rear-window slats have been added. The specially produced 1969-70 Boss 429s were Ford’s vision of a “super Mustang” powered by the new hemi big-block that was developed specifically for stock-car racing and legalized under NASCAR’s homologation rule by installing 500 engines into production vehicles. Because the massive powerplant was too wide for the Mustang’s engine compartment, the final build was handed off to Kar Kraft, Ford’s contracted race shop in Brighton, Michigan, where the Boss 429 engines were lowered into Mustangs with modified shock towers. With 375 HP, the Boss 429 was Ford’s most powerful Mustang to date. As such, each car was equipped with mandatory 4-speed transmission, 9-inch rear end with 3.91 gears, functional hood scoop, oil cooler, Competition Suspension, staggered rear shocks, tachometer, power steering, power front disc brakes, front spoiler and 15-inch Magnum 500 wheels with Goodyear Polyglas tires. For the 1970 model year, brighter exterior paints were available, including Calypso Coral, and a T-handle Hurst shifter became standard equipment. This immaculately restored and rare Calypso Coral Boss 429 is documented by two Ford invoices, restoration photos and an Elite Marti Report.
S135 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Pace Car Edition 124679N640930 $75,000.00 $100,000.00 $88,000 €76,000 Mid White over Orange. One of 3,675 produced, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Pace Car Edition is a genuine RPO Z11 example that was upgraded to the L78-spec 396/375 HP big-block Mark IV V-8 as part of a frame-off nut-and-bolt restoration. A 4-bolt main engine with Winters aluminum heads and a Holley 4-barrel carburetor on an aluminum intake, this was the most powerful engine available in a regular-production Camaro in 1969, when Chevrolet’s fledgling pony car made its second appearance as the Indianapolis 500 Pace Car in the three years since its introduction. With the obvious exception of the COPO limited-production cars, the Pace Car was the rarest Camaro in what is widely acknowledged as a vintage year. The Z11 Pace Car package was offered only on convertibles equipped with the combined SS and Rally Sport packages comprising hideaway headlights and blacked-out grille, bright wheel-arch and beltline trim, SS badges, heavy-duty suspension, power front disc brakes, special simulated hood intake grilles, F70 tires and simulated rear-fender louvers. That’s a great package right out of the gate, one made better by the choice of this car’s big-block powerplant, Muncie 4-speed manual transmission and 12-bolt Positraction third member. The Z11 Pace Car option was distinguished by its Dover White paint and Hugger Orange striping, white soft top, cowl-induction hood, Rally wheels with Goodyear Polyglas rubber, chromed dual exhaust tips and exclusive Orange Z87 Custom vinyl interior with houndstooth inserts. In addition to power steering and front and rear bumper guards, several optional extras include a rear spoiler, Soft Ray-tinted glass, 8,000 RPM tachometer, console with U17 Special Instruments, wood-grained steering wheel and a Delco AM/FM radio. This is a well-restored 1969 Pace Car Edition, finished to exceptionally high standards.
S136 1930 Duesenberg Model J Torpedo Phaeton Rep. 2276/J-255 $1,000,000.00 $1,200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Red leather and Back top. Bearing Engine No. J-255 and Serial No. 2276, this 1930 Duesenberg Model J was originally fashioned with Judkins Company limousine coachwork and delivered new to William Sandow. Duesenberg owner and historian Randy Ema has confirmed that by 1935 the car was used by E.L. Cord’s wife before it was purchased in 1937 by John W. de Noira, whose Pacific Auto Rental in Hollywood had become a major source of rental cars for the booming movie industry. As a result, this Model J is perhaps the most filmed of any Duesenberg, having appeared in at least 14 Hollywood productions, including “The Great McGinty” (1940), “Pocketful of Miracles” (1951), “Al Capone” (1955), “Party Girl” (1958), “Howard Hughes” (1977), “The Gangster Chronicles” (1981) and “City Heat” (1984). In 1985, it was purchased from Pacific Auto Rental by Fred and Dave Weber, who commissioned the highly respected award-winning coachbuilder and restorer Fran Roxas of Chicago to upgrade the coachwork in the style of a Walker LaGrande Torpedo Phaeton while retaining its complete rolling chassis, drivetrain and numbered firewall. The car has resided with a series of owners; it was also once a part of the famed Blackhawk Collection. In 2007, it became part of a noted North East collection, where it received comprehensive detail work that included replacing the black cloth top and improving the fit of the rear windows. In the last decade it has made numerous show appearances to wide acclaim, winning the title of “Most Outstanding Open Car, 1921-1930” at the 2008 Greenwich Concours d’Elegance. A genuine American classic with a well-established history and outstanding provenance, this 1930 Duesenberg Model J is an exquisite machine that perfectly embodies Fred Duesenberg’s and E.L. Cord’s original concept of “The World’s Finest Motorcar.” via Bonhams Greenwich ’10 NS @ $800k, Bonhams Quail ’11 NS @ $800k and via Bonhams Boca Raton ’13 sold $698k.
S137 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Coupe 194378S415053 $400,000.00 $500,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Polar White over Red leather. One of only 80 produced for model-year 1968, this Chevrolet Corvette L88’s tank sticker confirms its origins as a factory L88 in the classic Corvette color combination of Polar White with a red leather interior. The L88 was the creation of legendary Chevrolet engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov, whose relentless quest to inject ever larger doses of power and performance into his beloved Corvette resulted in a world-beating factory-built racer that was completely out of character for Chevrolet’s mild-mannered management, especially at a time when the official corporate policy was a “no tolerance” attitude toward factory racing participation. Arkus-Duntov adroitly sidestepped every obstacle placed in his way by upper management, quietly working with independents and professional teams alike to develop the L88 into a weapons-grade package that homologated the Corvette for SCCA A Production and FIA GT competition, and most of the 200 cars eventually produced saw nothing but the race track. A small few, however, went to private owners who wanted the prestige, even if just enjoyed surreptitiously, of owning the most powerful production Corvette ever made. This 1968 L88 coupe is one such car, one recent owner having garage-kept it for 38 years. In 2016, GT Motorcars in Wallingford, Connecticut, cosmetically refreshed this L88, repainting it in correct Polar White. The original gas tank was removed with the valuable tank sticker still affixed; it is now part of the car’s documentation. It retains the original red leather interior with radio delete and removable rear window. The period-correct drivetrain comprises the 427/430 HP L88 engine with 4-bolt-main bearing caps, aluminum heads, a Holley 850 CFM double-pumper 4-barrel carburetor on an aluminum intake, and K66 transistor ignition, backed by a Muncie M22 4-speed and 3.70 Positraction rear end. J50/J56 heavy-duty power brakes, F41 special suspension and redline tires on Rally wheels complete this 1968 Corvette L88 Coupe, which shows just 24,780 miles.
S138 1954 Kurtis Kraft 500S Continuation KK500S038K $125,000.00 $150,000.00 $90,750 €78,375 -27% Red over Black. American motorsport and Indianapolis 500 championship heritage run strong in this 1954 Kurtis Kraft 500S continuation supercharged V-8 special. Los Angeles-based Frank Kurtis designed and constructed a series of innovative Midget racers, Bonneville runners and Indy 500 cars from his Kurtis Kraft company before and after the war. Early 1950s 500S were thinly disguised sports-car versions of Kurtis Kraft Indy 500 cars and were raced in SCCA competition by Briggs Cunningham and Mickey Thompson. The continuation 500S cars were created using the same coach-crafted tradition and race engineering as their progenitors. This supercharged 500S waits for its next driver to experience a true American sports car from its Lecarra steering wheel out to the hand-formed red and black scalloped body and 16-inch Halibrand pin-drive alloy center-lock wheels. The 500S is powered by a 351 CI Ford V-8 engine equipped with a Powerdyne centrifugal supercharger that forces air into a specially housed 750 CFM Holley carburetor and Edelbrock Performer intake manifold. Dual Mallory fuel pumps draw from a 15-gallon aircraft fuel cell. The engine is backed by a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, aluminum driveshaft and live rear axle outfitted with a Ford 9-inch differential and Detroit Locker for positive traction. Stainless-steel long-tube headers and side exhaust deliver road-racing style, performance and sound. The black-finish X-braced perimeter frame and undercarriage features Kurtis Kraft torsion-bar suspension with monotube shocks and hydraulic vented disc brakes. The open roadster cockpit surrounds the driver with a full complement of Stewart Warner instrumentation, including a 160 MPH speedometer. Fused toggle switches control pushbutton ignition, fuel pumps and cooling fan. Four-point Simpson racing harness, three-station Halon fire-suppression system and chrome-finish four-point roll bar add track-tested measures of safety to the traditional sports car for modern motoring on the highway or road course. via Bonhams Quail ’12 $135k.
S139 2001 Lamborghini Diablo VT ZA9DU01B61LA12744 $300,000.00 $350,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blu Monterey over Oyster leather. According to Lamborghini aficionados, one of the best Lamborghinis ever built was the Diablo VT 6.0L. Only 136 Diablo VT 6.0Ls were built for the U.S. market, but this particular example is one of only two known to have been finished in the subdued but memorizing hue of Monterey Blue. When the VT 6.0 was introduced, it astonished “Motor Trend” magazine writer and lead test driver Mac Demere with its all-wheel-drive chassis effortlessly channeling the thunderous 575 HP V-12 from 0-60 MPH in a mere 3.4 seconds. Use the 5-speed manual transmission in conjunction with a proper launch and the VT 6.0 will finish the quarter-mile in less than 12 seconds at around 120 MPH on its way to a 204 MPH top speed, marking it as one of the highest performance cars in the world. The major service was completed on this car less than 1,000 miles ago, including valve adjustment, oil and filter change, front and rear differential fluids, gearbox fluids, spark plugs and both the air and cabin filters. With only 22,973 original miles, this car will be sold with the original equipment exhaust, but currently employs a Lamborghini Orange County LOC exhaust system. The front lift system helps ensure the car will have an easier time negotiating driveway aprons. The striking optional OEM carbon-fiber rear wing is crafted of blue woven carbon fiber lending a remarkable visual to the overall image of the car while providing an additional level of stability at speed. The tail lights are nestled in carbon-fiber surrounds, which also blends with the rear mesh grille stretching from one side to the other, creating a more completed, aggressive black-insert look. Inside, the Oyster-colored upholstery is offset by black carpeting and dashtop, with carbon-fiber trim lending some aesthetic depth from the center console, steering wheel, center stack, instrument cluster and Alpine stereo with remote. Sold with both its tools and manuals, this Monterey Blue Diablo VT 6.0L is a rare opportunity indeed.
S139.1 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet 111.027-12.001721 $275,000.00 $350,000.00 $266,750 €230,374 -3% Red over Tan leather. Restored by Tilos.
S140 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 194377S111262 $150,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White and Red over Red. Presented in a striking color combination of bright 1969 Can Am White with a red Stinger and matching red leather interior by Al Knoch, this 427/435 HP V-8-equipped Corvette boasts tri-power, side exhaust, a 4-speed manual, 3.36 rear-end gears, power steering and power brakes. It underwent a body-off restoration using NOS parts and retains the tank sticker. Creature comforts include a heater, defroster, clock, radio and chrome driver’s sideview mirror. Although an original green car from the factory (it retains the original green car trim tag), the car’s current scheme is a seldom-seen color combination that’s truly refreshing. The Sting Ray Corvette was supposed to have given way to the Mako Shark-inspired third-generation Corvettes in 1967, but for various reasons, it didn’t happen and many agree for the better. These final-year cars ushered in a nice variety of engine options, two small-block 327s and three big-block 427s, indicating that indeed the performance wars were not only on, but at an all-time-high. Corvettes were in their prime—the build quality was exceptional, performance was exemplary and styling was arguably at a summit, higher than ever before. Songs aplenty touted the dreamy nature of driving a Corvette, advertising touted that these Corvettes were a great secondhand car with an image of a stopwatch, and all things considered, Corvette had reached dream-car status in the realms of Jaguar, Ferrari and Lamborghini. Magazines of the day were finding insanely low 0-60 MPH times, especially for big-block Corvettes, in the 5-second range. The 427/435 HP was the most powerful engine that could be had in a Corvette without going completely race car and ordering the expensive L88. Thus, the 435 HP Corvette was much more interesting to performance enthusiasts, which is still the case today.
S141 1967 Ferrari 330GTC 09955 $550,000.00 $650,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso Corsa over Cuoio leather. This particular car is a matching-numbers example which was constructed for the European marketplace and equipped with air conditioning, power windows and instruments in kilometers. By the late 1990s, the car was in La Jolla, California, and was red with a cream-colored leather interior. Much more recently, within about the last 1,000 miles, the engine was rebuilt by John Hajduk’s Motorkraft Ltd., and the car is best described as a well-sorted car mechanically, with a nice driver-level cosmetic presentation. The paintwork is very nice, over good, straight body panels, with excellent fit and door shut. The glass and lenses are excellent, and the chrome is very nice with minimal evidence of aging. This example retains the often-missing lower fiberglass radiator shroud, and it sits on Michelin XWX-shod Borrani wheels with correct knock-off wheels. The interior was beautifully redone in 2013 in Cuoio leather with the correct black vinyl in proper areas. The carpets are excellent and correct, and the headliner is probably original. The car has been fitted with modern seatbelts, but the original aviation-style belts originally fitted are included with the sale. A proper, period-correct Becker AM/FM unit remains, and the power windows are functioning well. The factory-correct wood-rimmed wheel also remains, and the dash is finished in the correct semi-gloss varnish. The engine compartment is clean and largely correct, but not detailed for show. Present is the battery hold down, but no window-washer bag. The trunk is very nice with correct carpeting, a correct Borrani spare and a spare-tire hold down. The underside is solid and doesn’t show any signs of collision repair or rust repairs, but it is not overly detailed either. The exhaust system is in very good order as well. This example drives well on the open road. The rebuilt engine sounds crisp and makes excellent power with no apparent smoke. The gearbox is also excellent, including second gear, even when cold. The suspension feels supple, although there is some minor play in the steering box. Offered with a tool roll and owner’s manual, this 330 GTC embodies all the superb qualities that made it the very definition of automotive style and elegance in its time. Long a favorite among Ferrari connoisseurs who appreciate their excellent road manners and elegant styling, the secret around the 330 and 365 GTC is out, with a recent explosion in values. After years in the shadow of some of their less understated brethren, GTCs are now appreciated for their mechanical sophistication, performance, elegance and rarity. Just 600 examples were built, and this is a high-caliber example.
S142 2006 Ford GT 1FAFP90S76Y401511 $300,000.00 $335,000.00 $297,000 €256,499 -1% Centennial White and Blue over Ebony leather. This 2006 Ford GT pays homage to one of the greatest sports-racing prototypes in the history of motorsports: the legendary GT40. The inevitable byproduct of Ford’s failed attempt to purchase Ferrari in the early 1960s, the GT40 put an end to 20 years of international racing dominance by Ferrari, sweeping the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, cementing the World Championship and beginning a dry spell for Ferrari in the French classic that continues more than five decades later. Ford returned to those roots for its 2005 centennial, drawing inspiration from the GT40 for an all-new grand-touring car for the 21st century. It was not Ford’s first attempt at conjuring anew the GT40’s magic, commissioning GT40 designer Roy Lunn to reprise the original even before the engine had cooled on the 1966 Le Mans winner. No fewer than eight more concepts appeared over the years, but with the company’s centennial on the horizon, Ford management finally approved a design by Camilo Pardo, the head of Ford’s “Living Legends” studio, that perfectly captured the GT40’s style and presence. The key to Pardo’s, and Ford’s, success was simple; they acknowledged that the GT40 was a timeless design, and that the new car needed to be perceived not as a replacement, but a reissue. The final design was a remarkable success in those terms, as the 2005-2006 GT’s increasing popularity has demonstrated. Wrapped in Centennial White with blue stripes over its Super Plastic Formed aluminum bodywork and based on an aluminum space frame with double-wishbone independent suspension, this 2006 GT is powered by Ford’s excellent supercharged 5.4L/550 HP aluminum DOHC V-8 with a Ricardo 6-speed gearbox. Offered at just 2,308 miles, it features upgraded Bridgestone Potenza tires on lightweight BBS forged-alloy wheels, Brembo Anti-Lock vented disc brakes, HID headlights and a pristine ebony leather interior with added silver seat inserts, air conditioning and an optional McIntosh audio system.
S143 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 ?? $250,000.00 $275,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Maroon over Biscuit leather. Competition potential was realised in 1955 when the DB2/4 won Class and Team Prize in the Monte Carlo Rally. The left-hand-drive DB2/4 on offer here is one of approximately 139 hatchback coupes produced with the larger engine, breathing through twin SU carburetors and producing 165 HP. Tastefully finished in maroon with a biscuit hide interior, wood-rim steering wheel, Smith’s instruments and chrome wire wheels, it also features the optional bumper overriders. Today the DB2/4 MkI remains rare and exclusive, with a production tally of 564—roughly half that of the DB5—but it also has the distinction of scoring trophies in the Monte Carlo Rally.
S144 1968 Shelby GT500KR Fastback 8T02R216084 $225,000.00 $250,000.00 $209,000 €180,499 -7% Acapulco Blue Metallic over Black. As documented by its Elite Marti Report and listing in the Shelby Registry, this 1968 Shelby GT500KR Fastback is one of the rare late-year models with the 428/335 HP Cobra Jet engine. Only 1,053 GT500KR fastbacks were produced following Shelby’s upgrade to the 428 Cobra Jet in April 1968. Finished in attractive Acapulco Blue Metallic with a black interior and 10-spoke Shelby wheels, Shelby No. 04315 is also equipped with a 4-speed transmission, 3.50 Traction-Lok rear end, power steering, power front disc brakes, fold-down rear seat and Lucas driving lights. For 1968, Shelby production moved to Michigan’s A.O. Smith Company, where Mustangs were transformed into Shelbys with abundant use of fiberglass body panels, including an extended nose piece, hood with forward-placed scoops, trunk lid with ducktail spoiler, side scoops and a rear panel with distinctive 1965 Thunderbird sequential tail lights. Inside, the Shelbys received the Mustang Interior Décor Group plus a unique console with a Cobra-embossed padded armrest, dual gauges in the console and a roll bar with shoulder harnesses. At mid-year, the GT500’s 428 Police Interceptor was replaced by Ford’s latest performance engine, the 428 Cobra Jet. Famously, when Carroll Shelby learned that Chevrolet was planning a special “King of the Road” model, he swooped in to grab the copyright. Thus, the Cobra Jet-powered GT500s were identified by the “KR” in their side stripes. Although rated at 25 less horsepower than the 428 Police Interceptor, the Cobra Jet was a performance engine through and through, a combination of low-riser 427 cylinder heads, 390 GT camshaft, high-flow exhaust manifolds and Holley 4-barrel induction. Special ducting mounted under the KR hood funneled cooler outside air from the scoops to the air cleaner. With low production numbers, added performance, special looks and Shelby mystique, the GT500KR is considered one of the most collectible of all Shelby Mustangs.
S145 1999 Lamborghini Diablo SV ZA90U2185XLA12311 $270,000.00 $300,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rossa Vic Pearl over Snowcorn leather. Factory-option SV side decals, and scissor doors open to reveal a wraparound dash, door panels and seats upholstered in Snow Corn leather with red stitching and piping to match the red carpet. A black leather-wrapped steering wheel sits over traditional instrumentation, with center-console controls, the gated shifter, factory air conditioning and an Alpine sound system within easy reach. Open the doors skyward, fire up the V-12 engine and hang on for a thrill ride.
S146 2014 Ferrari F12 202496 $250,000.00 $300,000.00 $258,500 €223,249 Mid Rosso Scuderia over Nero leather. Imagine, if you will, strapping into the form-fitting black leather and Alcantara driver’s seat of this stunningly beautiful 2014 Ferrari F12. Surrounding you in more red-stitched black leather and raw carbon fiber, its interior feels scintillating, an impression confirmed when you turn the key and the dials in the deeply hooded instrument panel come to life, the odometer showing a digital readout of 1,260 miles. The steering wheel’s leather covering shares space with more carbon fiber and presents you with buttons for engine start, shock adjustment, wipers and the red-anodized Manettino switch that allow you to choose between Wet, Sport, Race, CT Off and ESC Off modes, the latter two switching off Traction Control and Electronic Stability Control, respectively, and allowing the choice between taking complete control or enabling the F12’s extraordinary electronic management systems to keep you on the road at speed. Push the red Engine Start button: you hear and feel the F12’s exotic all-aluminum 6.3L/731 HP V-12 bark to life and settle into that characteristic growl. Engage the paddle-shifted 7-speed dual-clutch F1 semi-automatic gearbox and launch the car forward at an ungodly rate of acceleration, zooming past 60 MPH in 3.5 seconds and careening to a top speed of 211 MPH. The F12’s aluminum chassis and body are packaged and sculpted to leverage airflow through and around the car, and its double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension are well able to handle the V-12’s output throughout its power range thanks to its electromagnetic dampers, stability and traction controls, E-Diff3 electronic differential and the ABS watching over its carbon-ceramic disc brakes. In its time, the Ferrari F12 was the quickest and fastest rear-wheel-drive production car ever made, and in the case of this 2014 Rosso Scuderia example, it sports $162,626 in optional extras, including a carbon-fiber driver zone and LEDs, carbon-fiber engine covers, door-panel trim, filter-box cover, rear diffuser and front wing, and Bi-xenon headlamps with Adaptive Front Lighting. Incredibly quick and amazingly fun to drive, this is one of the world’s great grand-touring machines.
S147 2008 Porsche 911/997 GT3 RS WP0AC29938S792296 $250,000.00 $300,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Viper Green over Black leather and suede. One of just 413 imported into the United States, this 2008 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a stunning presentation in the iconic color of Viper Green with bold black “GT3 RS” graphics emblazoned along the sides. The interior is dressed in rich black leather and Alcantara with deviated Viper Green stitching on the seats, dash and side panels. A genuine Porsche-issued Viper Green rollbar and thin-shell racing seats complete the cabin. The GT3 RS occupies a focused niche in the 911 lineup and uses a host of specialized parts. The engine block is referred to as the “Mezger” engine—a motorsports-derived powerplant that is distinctly different than the one used in the other standard 997 generation-one models. This 3.6L horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine produces 415 HP—an amazing 1.88 HP per cubic inch in naturally aspirated form. Under the guidance of Andreas Preuninger—Porsche’s ace Chief Development Engineer—the entire setup on the GT3 has been reconfigured with larger brakes, sculpted body pieces to add aerodynamic downforce, recalibrated suspension and lowered ride height. The GT3 RS is visually distinguished from its GT3 sibling with a wide rear fender body—one that is shared with the Carrera 4—in order to accommodate wider wheels and tires. It is further endowed with carbon-ceramic brakes and the following weight-saving features: an adjustable carbon-fiber rear wing, plastic engine cover and a thin-gauge glass rear window. The net result is a factory-rated top speed of 193 MPH and 0-60 MPH acceleration time of just 4.3 seconds. This example has only 8,571 original miles and is additionally optioned with air conditioning and Sport Chrono. The GT3 has long been considered the best driver’s car of the entire Porsche lineup, and the rare RS versions only serve to enhance the attributes that have led to such praise from Porschephiles.
S148 1966 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Roadster 1E12628 $225,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Opalescent Maroon over Black leather and top. A beautiful E-Type that is the product of an extensive restoration and equipped with the desirable 4.2L inline 6-cylinder engine, this exceptional example is finished in a provocative Opalescent Maroon livery complemented by an intriguing black leather interior and black top that beckons one to slither into the comfortable bucket seats and settle in the low-slung cockpit that reminds us of a World War II fighter aircraft. The car features a 4.2L 6-cylinder engine with triple side-draft carburetors and synchronized 4-speed manual transmission. The E-Type has long been lauded as one of the most stunning designs ever to hit the road. The model made its public debut at the Geneva Auto Show in March 1961, stirring the excitement of the critics with its combination of sensual, sleek lines and British refinement. The machine was such a stunning vision that Jaguar test driver Norman Dewis was directed to drop everything in England and drive all night to deliver a second E-Type to Geneva for press rides. While William Lyons was involved with the E-Type designed by noted aerodynamicist and former mathematician Malcolm Sayer, the curvaceous timeless design of the E-Type was constructed from methods descended from the legendary D-Type racing car and carried over from the XK150S, which assured the Jaguar would exceed 150 MPH. Series I examples with the 4.2L engines are considered the most collectable from the covered headlights, wood-trimmed steering wheel and shifter knob, oval grille, toggle switches and a 265 HP DOHC engine to the monocoque tub that formed the main body/chassis structure with multi-tube spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. This particular car has an elegant presence with the long sculpted nose all supported by chrome wire wheels with knock-offs and blackwall tires that portray the beautiful period style. The highly detailed engine bay and undercarriage rounds out the superior qualities of this “cat” that represents the significance of the E-Type and why one is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
S149 2012 Porsche 911/991 GT3 Cup 4.0 Brumos Edition WP0ZZZ99ZCS798183 $300,000.00 $400,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A White race over Black race. This 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup 4.0 is one of the last five U.S.-specification GT3 Cup cars built by Porsche that year, all of which were offered by Porsche’s long-time American racing partner, Brumos Porsche in Jacksonville, Florida, as exclusive Brumos Commemorative Editions. The partnership between Brumos and Porsche dates back to the late 1950s, when it first became an authorized Porsche dealership. Brumos Racing entered competition in the 1960 Sebring 12 Hours, fielding a Porsche RS60 famously driven to second place overall by Bob Holbert, Roy Schechter and Howard Fowler, beginning a decades-long tradition of racing victories at the highest levels of motorsport in such hallowed theaters as the original Can Am, Sebring, Daytona and Le Mans. Longtime company president Hurley Haywood is a standout among the star drivers who have built Brumos’ unparalleled record, having captured five Daytona 24 Hours victories, three at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and two in the Sebring 12 Hours, contributing to a series of championships that included six IMSA GT and three Trans Am titles in a single decade. More recently, Brumos won the 2009 Rolex 24 at Daytona in a Porsche DP prototype, then returned to the American Grand-Am series to take the 2011 championship in a specially prepared Porsche GT3 Cup racer driven by team drivers Leh Keen and Andrew Davis. Like its four stablemates, this Brumos Commemorative Edition GT3 Cup car was meticulously prepared by Porsche Motorsports North America to those same Grand-Am Championship-winning specifications. At its heart is the 4.0L/450 HP high-torque flat-6 racing engine built by Porsche exclusively for its factory Grand-Am teams, combining sequential multi-port fuel injection, Bosch electronic engine management and full racing exhaust with regulated catalytic converter. A computerized throttle “blipper” system aids downshifting through the 6-speed manual transmission to the limited-slip differential. Other features include a MoTeC ADL2 data-acquisition system with steering and braking sensors, predictive lap timing and other monitoring functions. The multi-link rear and adjustable MacPherson strut front suspension, APP aluminum center-lock wheels, steel-rotor disc brakes with red-painted aluminum calipers are also Brumos competition-grade pieces. Inside the stripped-down cockpit is a welded-in full roll cage, carbon-fiber floor plate and dead pedal, padded steering wheel and sequential shifter, two OMP racing bucket seats with five-point harnesses and an electronic fire-extinguishing system. The exterior finish faithfully emulates the 2011 Brumos GT3 Cup car with its white, red and blue livery, and it includes the requisite wide-body shell, carbon-fiber doors, front flares and splitter, and adjustable carbon-fiber rear wing of the original; even the decals are specific to the 2011 Grand-Am Championship winner. Test driven and approved for delivery by Hurley Haywood, this very exclusive Brumos Commemorative Edition Porsche GT3 qualifies for SCCA, Porsche Club of America and Porsche Owner’s Club competition. It is a truly unique race car that represents the longstanding and very special relationship between two giants of sports-racing history.

S151 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 194677S105247 $150,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Marina Blue over Blue. This 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible sets itself apart, having attained some of the marque’s most prestigious accolades including Bloomington Gold Certification, the NCRS Top Flight award and Chevy VetteFest Gold Spinner, all culminating in the coveted Triple Crown. Dressed in Marina Blue, it was the beneficiary of a meticulous frame-off restoration. Underneath its distinctive triangular air cleaner lies the heart of a beast, a matching-numbers legendary L68 427/400 HP V-8 sporting three 2-barrel carburetors. The rest of the drivetrain is equally beefy with the M21 4-speed manual transmission and the Positraction rear end. One look at the factory-correct interior illustrates the effort and detail that went into this car’s restoration. Imagine slipping into the Bright Blue interior and sitting behind the wood-rimmed steering wheel, looking out over the twin-cowl dash (a Corvette fixture since 1958) and turning the key in the ignition. Then, it’s hearing the unmistakable roar of the 427 coming to life, its exhaust symphony exiting through its distinctive side pipes. Out of the car, standing back and looking at the car’s profile, it’s bumper-to-bumper excellence, a career high point of the talented pen of GM’s Bill Mitchell. The exterior color suits the car’s voluptuous styling exceptionally well, as the blue finish is nicely accented by the Rally wheels, the chrome trim rings and the redline tires. This drop top was delivered new to Brigance Chevrolet in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, Illinois, in December 1966, and it’s documented with its original tank sticker and Protect-O-Plate, as well as an NCRS Shipping Data Report. Still looking stylish today, one can only imagine the excitement of seeing this car more than 50 years ago. With its combination of powertrain, color, options, condition and pedigree, this machine would make a welcome addition and centerpiece to any collection.
S152 1930 Packard Dual Cowl Phaeton 293301 $85,000.00 $95,000.00 N/R $46,200 €39,900 -45% Yellow and Red over Black leather. The term “Luxurious Transportation” was used by Packard for marketing in 1930, and the style and grace of this impressive 1930 Packard Dual Cowl Phaeton is aptly summed up by that term. Packards of this era competed with marques like Cord and Ruxton, as well as the Imperials, Lincolns and Cadillacs of the Big Three, each striving to gain the attention and finances of well-heeled clientele. The Packard Dual Cowl Phaeton was a body rendering for those who desired greater visibility from the position of travel, with a second clear windscreen between the front and rear seating positions. The Packard here has been with the same owner for 30 years. Painted in a delicate yellow with subdued red accents and fenders, it echoes classic elegance from first glance. It has a black leather interior and a complementary-toned tan top, and solid-face dish wheels painted body color with red pinstriping and whitewall tires complete the presentation. Under the hood is the 320 CI inline 8-cylinder engine and a 4-speed manual transmission, and this car features the Bijur lube system. Led by the polished radiator guard and Goddess of Speed mascot, there are dual spares, both with mounted mirrors and chrome shrouds, dual front-brace-mounted fog lights, dual Pilot Ray headlights, fender-mounted driving lights and a driver’s-side-mounted spotlight. Beyond the front and rear folding windscreens, the interior features a turned-metal dash and black leather door panels with pouches, while the area behind it supports a multi-compartment rear-mounted travel trunk. Dual front-mounted wind wings complete the luxury look of this rare motor car. Its excellent reputation allowed Packard to survive the trials of the Depression era, and this dual-cowl design retains a significance few other classics can attain to. If you have wanted a Packard motorcar, here is luxurious transportation awaiting your ownership.
S153 1929 Cadillac 341B Touring 331401 $70,000.00 $80,000.00 N/R $55,000 €47,500 -21% Blue and Black over Black. Few guessed when this 1929 Cadillac arrived on the scene that an event in October 1929 would spell the end to an era. The convertible here is a model 341B design from that final year of the Roaring ‘20s and features the scarce adaption of right-hand-drive. The 1929 lineup of “Standard of the World” Fisher-bodied luxury models from Cadillac featured safety glass and electric windshield wipers, and this example comes with many other desirable options. Done in the two-tone paint that helped create the extraordinary visual appeal of these cars, the blue Touring body is augmented by black fenders, a black top and a black leather interior. Indeed, while the car was designed for four, it also features two rear-facing jump seats. Under the expansive hood is a 341 CI V-8 engine, the durable L-head design which had been introduced the previous year, in turn backed by the new-for-1929 synchromesh 3-speed manual transmission. Duplex-Mechanical brakes featuring internal-shoe drums were also used on this model year. For the driver, there was an adjustable cranking seat support. Exterior options included the dual side-mounted spare tires, a driver’s-side rearview mirror mounted to that side’s spare, a passenger-side post-mounted chrome spotlight and rear-mounted travel trunk. From the front, one notices the dual fender-mounted driving lights, dual 12-inch chrome headlights, dual tail lights, single front-brace-mounted fog light and, when desirable, the outward-opening windshield. Of course, the chrome wire wheels wrapped in wide whitewall tires complete the elegance of this model. Cared for by the same owner for the last 30 years, cars of this stature retain global interest. With its right-hand-drive equipment, excellent accessories and significant size, this 341B Touring represents one of the greatest names in the history of motoring.
S156 2006 McLaren Mercedes SLR WDDAJ76F35M000098 $220,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Crystal Galaxy Blue Mica over Red leather. Two of the greatest names in motorsport history, Mercedes-Benz and McLaren enjoyed a long and prosperous partnership that began in 1995 in a joint venture to compete in Formula 1. The pairing not only produced three Constructors’ World Championships and Drivers’ titles, it also created this magnificent Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, one of just 141 built for the U.S. market in 2006. A wonder of modern construction techniques in 2006, the SLR (an abbreviation for “Sport Leicht Rennsport” or Sport Light Racing) harks back to the mid-1950s Mercedes-Benz sports-racing cars piloted by Juan Manuel Fangio and Stirling Moss. Like those all-conquering machines, the modern namesake is a technical tour-de-force and one of the most exhilarating automobiles on the planet. At 11,805 miles, this 2006 SLR coupe presents immaculately in Crystal Galaxy Black Mica paint with a rare and desirable red-on-black interior, the latter a $9,900 option that is virtually indispensable to the car’s exclusive nature and rich heritage. So too are the iconic swing-up doors, inspired by another Mercedes-Benz legend, the 1954-57 300SL Gullwing Coupe. The first road car constructed of carbon fiber using automation instead of hand-laying techniques, the SLR’s power resides in its all-aluminum supercharged 5.4L/617 HP SOHC V-8 engine. Coupled to AMG’s Speedshift R 5-speed automatic transmission, it growls at idle and roars at full throttle through twin side pipes just aft of the front-wheel arches, a very cool visual touch that competes with the adaptive brake-deployed rear air brake for the most evocative 300SLR-inspired detail. The SLR’s advanced front and rear double-wishbone suspension works under the command of Mercedes-Benz’s stability-control system and carbon-ceramic disc brakes with ABS and Electronic Brake Force Distribution. Cruise control, tilt-telescopic steering, power windows, mirrors and locks, dual-zone climate controls and rich leather upholstery all contribute to the sublime driving experience built into every aspect of this sensational Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
S157 1962 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster 12104010023861 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 $110,000 €95,000 -12% Black over Red leather. With the 300SL Roadster in the offing, it made obvious sense to provide a Mercedes-Benz sporting experience at a more accessible price. Even so, the 190SL was expensive; you could buy three MGAs for one 190SL, or a Jaguar XK140, with an Austin-Healey thrown in. With its 4-cylinder alloy-headed 1897cc/105 HP overhead-cam engine breathing through twin Solex carburetors, the 190SL was good for 108 MPH. Not as quick as a seat-of-the-pants Jag or Austin-Healey, but you’d pass the journey in comfort and style, and likely arrive far fresher, with a sense of well-being fostered by the beautifully appointed cockpit and a vista viewed over an array of glittering dials. As “Road & Track” put it: “On the highway, an 80 MPH cruising speed is extremely comfortable and well within the car’s capabilities.” Add to that the assurance of a car that was so thoughtfully conceived and screwed together that it barely changed throughout production from 1955 to 1963. And, of course, the 190SL was achingly glamourous and perfectly cast alongside Grace Kelly in the 1956 movie hit “High Society,” with Frank Sinatra in tow. The 190SL’s list of supporting players included Kirk Douglas, Yul Brynner, Alain Delon, Romy Schneider, Tuesday Weld and Alfred Hitchcock. However, this particular 4-speed 1962 Mercedes-Benz 190SL wears black livery with matching hubcaps and a convertible soft top in beige. The exterior is complemented by a red leather interior appointed with a Becker radio, heater, power door locks and a clock mounted on the glovebox door. The inventory is completed with front and rear bumper overriders and Goodyear Marathon tires on 13-inch wheels. All of this goes some way to explaining why, when new, the 190SL was half the price of a 300SL Roadster.
S158 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster WP0EB0910KS173245 $150,000.00 $185,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grand Prix White over Tan leather and Black top. The Speedster has often been regarded as the distilled essence of Porsche—a performance sports car of well-executed simplicity of design. One of just 823 units imported into the U.S., the 1989 Speedster is truly a limited-production one-year-only model. Presented in the classic color of Grand Prix White contrasted with a black soft top, this 1989 911 Speedster features a slant-nose front end—a “Flachtbau” in Porsche parlance—a styling cue taken from the lightning-fast Porsche 935 race cars of the era. The wheels are Fuchs alloys detailed with body-color-keyed centers and painted crest caps. On the inside, beige leather covers the optional electric sport seats with deviating black on the dashboard, upper door sills and carpet surround area. In the early 1950s, Max Hoffman—the East Coast importer/distributor for Porsche—convinced Ferry Porsche to build a spartan roadster for the American market with an MSRP just below $3,000. The Speedster became legendary by both dominating the F production grids in SCCA racing, as well as making a life-style statement along the California coast. Model-year 1958 would be the final go around for the Speedster until its reemergence in 1989. The Speedster silhouette is iconic and un-mistakeable with its steeply raked low-slung windshield and solid hump-style cover over the rear cabin. Mechanical changes included large vented and cross-drilled disc brakes and wide Fuchs alloy wheels sourced from the Turbo. Under the hood, the engine is the 3.2L horizontally opposed 6-cylinder designed by the brilliant engineer Hans Mezger. The powerplant is mated to the fabulous G50 transmission—considered by many to be the finest 5-speed manual transmission ever produced by Porsche. Driven a mere 46,000 believed-original miles, this 911 Speedster is a stunning example of a special Porsche.
S159 1969 Dodge Hemi Super Bee WM21J9G174252 $115,000.00 $130,000.00 $121,000 €104,499 Mid Y-2 Yellow over Black. The Super Bee stung the other guys hard back in 1969. That year, Dodge’s budget brawler received the Ramcharger fresh-air hood option like this car displays, and a late-season batch picked up the new 440 Six Pack engine. However, this coupe went all the way to the top of the option charts, being one of only 38 built that year with the 426 Hemi and 4-speed drivetrain combination. Moreover, this rare machine retains its Super Track Pack driveline, a fact very few Hemi ‘Bees can claim. Following its original restoration, this code-Y2 Yellow stinger spent three additional years getting OEM blueprinted by noted expert Frank Badalson. In fact, the car’s story was unique enough that it has been featured in both “Mopar Muscle” and “Muscle Car Review” magazines. Under the hood is the 426 Hemi mill, rebuilt by Performance Counts Racing Engines. The NASCAR-derived engine features the Ramcharger underhood package with open-element air cleaner, dual-quad intake and twin Carter AFB carburetors. Behind that 425 HP engine is an A833 heavy-duty 4-speed transmission and the Dana 60 Super Track Pack 4.10 Sure Grip differential. Documentation on this car is extensive, including the factory broadcast sheet, photos of the previous refreshing by Rocket Restorations and the invoices for refinishing and component perfections done by Badalson. Following those efforts, a dyno test and test drive was administered by Badalson as well, making this car a truly authentic representation of the 1969 technology. Now showing 65,237 miles, just 25 miles have been driven since 2008, before the secondary work was performed. The 426 Hemi, 4-speed and 4.10 Dana Super Track Pack combination, colorful paint, Ramcharger hood and spectacular attention combine to solidify the attraction of this 1969 Hemi Super Bee to those aficionados who desire only the best.
S160 2003 Ferrari 360 Spider 131368 $105,000.00 $130,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grigio Alloy over Blu leather and top. Named for Enzo Ferrari’s birthplace and its 3.6L V-8 engine, the Ferrari 360 Modena set a new standard for 8-cylinder Ferraris that surpassed the benchmark set by the sensational F355 that preceded it. Unveiled at the 1999 Geneva Auto Show, the 360 Modena displayed hints of the legendary 250 LM in its smoothly sculpted bodywork, a refreshing design by Pininfarina based on a lightweight aluminum monocoque and tube chassis that was 40-percent stronger than the F355’s. It was also dimensionally larger, allowing the designers and engineers to package the 360 efficiently while providing extra room for two lucky occupants. The 360’s race-proven all-independent double-wishbone suspension was augmented with adaptive shock absorbers, anti-roll bars and power rack-and-pinion steering needing just 2.7 turns lock-to-lock, giving it incredibly responsive handling with the added benefit of 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS. Ferrari bumped displacement over the F355 as well to 3586cc, increasing power to 400 HP at 8,500 RPM and 275 lb-ft of torque. Sergio Pininfarina added a genius touch to the Modena that started a trend that lives on today, placing the engine on public display beneath a clear glass cover. “The 360’s engine was a masterpiece,” he explained, “so we asked, ‘Why must we keep the masterpiece in the car?’” Exposing the 360 Modena’s interior to the sun was the next logical step, and in 2000, a Spider version debuted in Geneva to wide acclaim. In the years since, the 360 Modena Spider has gained a huge following of faithful admirers that made this superb Ferrari a bestseller both when new and in the secondary market. This 2003 example is poetic proof of the 360’s lasting allure, a stunning beauty finished in Grigio Alloy with a dark-blue retractable fabric top and matching leather interior. Offered with just 16,975 miles and optioned with Challenge-style grilles, red brake calipers, the highly desirable gated-manual 6-speed transmission, power sport seats and leather rear shelf/door mold, this handsome 360 Modena Spider is a milestone in the V-8 Ferrari lineage.
S161 2008 Ferrari 599GTB 161636 $145,000.00 $165,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso Corsa over Cuoio and Nero leather. A top-quality presentation, unique color scheme and low mileage combine to recommend this 2008 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Berlinetta to the discriminating collector. Ferrari closed out the 20th century with the marvelous 550 and 575 Maranello, both designed in the mold of the classic front-engined V-12-powered two-seater, setting the stage for an exciting new generation of mid-engine V-8 sports and GT cars in the 360 Modena and F430. The front-engined Ferrari returned in 2006 in the 599 GTB Fiorano, dramatically different but still unquestionably Ferrari in every harmonious detail. The 599’s long nose, short deck and arching hips suggested strong forward motion, and the pronounced rearward placement of the cabin allowed its naturally aspirated, direct-fuel-injected 6.0L/611 HP V-12 to be positioned almost amidships in the car’s chassis for almost perfect front-rear balance. The almost exponential speed of development in Ferrari’s Formula 1 program spilled over into ever more sophisticated technology in its road cars, and the 599 led the way with the lightning-quick F1 Superfast 6-speed gearbox, programmable electronically controlled suspension using magnetorheological shocks to quicken response time and virtually fade-free carbon-ceramic disc brakes. This eye-catching 2008 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano builds on those sensational qualities with arresting Rosso Corsa paint and a special-order two-tone yellow on red leather interior with deviated stitching and featuring carbon-fiber Daytona-style racing buckets, leather headliner and shelf, red belts and aluminum trim. A brilliant grand-touring machine driven just 6,535 miles since new, it is additionally optioned with a yellow rev counter, power memory and heated seats, dual-zone climate control and a Bose premium sound system. Scuderia fender shields, 20-inch ball-polished monolithic alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tires, yellow brake calipers and dual-mode exhaust complete this stunning 599 GTB Fiorano.
S162 1963 Volkswagen Samba Bus 23 Window 1083066 $150,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Yellow and White over Tan, White and Light Brown. Providing transportation for countless numbers of people for decades, the Volkswagen bus has an enduring popularity, especially for the early T1 and T2 variants. This 1963 Volkswagen 23-Window Bus strikes a lovely balance between old-world charm and modern-day equipment. One of the most passionate, emotional vehicles ever built, the Volkswagen Bus earned an indelible place in the fabric of automotive history if for no other reason than its remarkably friendly demeanor, a disposition that placed it as a family member the world over. It was more than just a vehicle for so many. It was home away from home; it was freedom and security. Presented in a traditional two-tone yellow and white color combination, this 23-window bus rolls on 17-inch Budnik wheels and an adjustable Air Ride suspension system. Powered by a twin carburetor 120 HP horizontally opposed 2110cc 4-cylinder engine with a Freeway Flyer 4-speed manual transmission, the power is kept in check with 4-wheel disc brakes. It’s not the original 24 HP T1 that started the love affair, this one is built to pleasantly surprise with a compliant ride, capable handling and effortless acceleration. Equipped with the desirable Safari front and rear windows and a vintage-style roof rack, the bus is fitted with a TMI interior of tan, white and light brown complementing and offsetting the exterior color scheme well. Packed with subtle custom touches inside and out, from the steering wheel to a fun decal, this 23-window bus is full of surprises that make it remarkably unique, personal, classic and modern. Officially known as the Samba, or Sunroof Deluxe, these 23-window vans were first introduced in 1951 and marketed as the plushest people mover available from Volkswagen. They featured pivoting side doors as opposed to the sliding unit, a fabric sunroof and, of course, all the windows providing a panoramic view anywhere it went.
S163 2017 BMW 760i Centennial Edition WBA7H6C3XHG614358 $150,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Centennial Blue Metallic over Smoke White Full Merino and Piano Black leather. If considering production numbers when looking at a car from its possible growth potential in the future, it should be easy to deduct that less is indeed more. That stated, such exclusivity should be coupled to reputation and quality as well. Offered here is a one-of-five produced for United States distribution 2017 BMW 760i Centennial Edition. Announced in April 2016 with a very limited run of 100 examples worldwide, this car shows a mere 10 miles and is offered on an MSO, never having been titled. The Centennial, as one would guess, was in celebration of the founding of what is now commonly known as Bavarian Motor Works in 1917. All 100 were painted in a unique Centennial Blue Metallic with a handcrafted “The Next 100 Years” signet on the B-pillars. There is also a 100th Year insignia on the dash, with a build number inscribed in the console. Mechanically, the car received the 6.6L/610 HP M760Li xDrive V-12 engine, a twin-turbo design capable of fearful acceleration. The 0-60 MPH times were noted at 3.6 seconds. It is connected to an automatic transmission and power is translated via all-wheel-drive. Integral active steering is also part of this combination, and reports noted that full air suspension with Dynamic Damper Control and an array of driver assist/safety technologies were also part of the release. Inside is pure luxury from the BMW perspective, with a Smoke White Full Merino Leather interior with contrasted piping and Piano Black accents. Smoke White Alcantara was selected for the headliner, floor coverings and custom mats. This car has the luxury rear seating package, executive lounge seating, Climate Comfort laminated glass, four-zone climate control with ambient air package, Panoramic sky lounge LED roof, front ventilated and massaging seats, and a Bowers & Wilkins sound system that is Wi-Fi hotspot capable. Add in remote-control parking and navigation with a heads-up display, and you will own remarkable luxury in a one-of-five built car.
S164 1953 Studebaker Champion Pro Touring G926072 $130,000.00 $160,000.00 $133,100 €114,949 Mid Metallic Silver over Red. The low-profile 1953 Studebaker Champion Starliner hardtop remains a uniquely identifiable automobile. Considering that it preceded industry two-seat trendsetters such as the Corvette and Thunderbird, this design is even considered by some to be a sport-oriented passenger car. Stylized by Robert Burke of the Raymond Loewy & Associates design team, the example offered here combines the best of old and new, reworked now as a classic grand-touring Street Rod with modern Corvette LS power and numerous upgrades. Incidentally, 1953 also heralded the final year of the legendary South Bend, Indiana-based motor company’s independence, as it joined forces with Packard in 1954. The professional build on this Champion was done on a rust-free body. Customizing items on the exterior in addition to the Metallic Silver paint include special Kindig door handles, Corvette mirrors and Corvette-inspired vents cut into the hood. Among the items upgraded from its origins were new glass and weather stripping, stainless and chrome replacement, and polished hardware throughout. For the driveline swap, a new Paul Newman chassis and suspension layout were utilized. And if those changes were not stunning enough, once inside one immediately notes the clean-fitted interior consisting of 1964 Ford Thunderbird front and rear seats covered in red leather upholstery with wood trim for accents. A custom cut-down 1959 Impala steering wheel was installed, as was new carpet, Vintage Air, power windows and an upgraded sound system featuring a GPS backup camera. This classic machine shows less than 310 miles since completion and is an exquisite example of the modern-era’s car-building possibilities. When found together, the names Loewy and Studebaker remain honored in American automotive styling, and this car combines that legacy with the performance desired by today’s owners.
S165 2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia 161012 $165,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Nero Daytona over Nero leather. When it comes to Ferraris, nothing offers more peace of mind than documented service history, and nothing proves better that a car really functions than actual miles on the odometer. This black and gold example has all of the former and just enough of the latter to deserve your attention. You only have to press the starter to know right away this is not your base F430, but a brilliant and highly civilized supercar. With an additional 20 HP, a revised intake manifold and freer-flowing exhaust, raised compression, and other goodies, the Scuderia version is the company’s way of putting serious track potential into the hands of anyone willing to trade a bit of cabin bling (the full U.S. carbon-fiber package including seats, mirrors etc.) for Enzo-level performance, the model with which the F430 also shares tail lights and engine cover vents. Befitting their name, Scuderia versions are always a bit more on the sharp end. Even the steering wheel is race-oriented; it is the first application in a Ferrari for the consumer market of Manettino, a rotary dial on the steering wheel that allows the driver to set a number of parameters for the stability- and traction-control systems, gearshift speed and shock setup. The example on offer has the service bulletin-prescribed update of the computer-controlled clutch-pack-type active differential that varies the distribution of torque based on inputs such as steering angle and lateral acceleration. It is worth pondering that Ferrari didn’t create the Scuderia as a marketing gimmick or because F430 sales were lagging—the wait list for North America was two years; this model was meant to put the Porsche RS or Lamborghini Gallardo Supperleggera on notice. It was a statement car and remains a standout to this day.
S166 1961 Fiat 600 Convertible 692053 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 $99,000 €85,500 -1% Blu over Marrone. Featuring rare Fiat Jolly hubcaps and trim, this 1961 Fiat 600 Jolly underwent a no-expense-spared nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration by a well-known Fiat Jolly expert, emerging in a fantastically whimsical shade of Baby Blue with only 20 miles registered on its odometer since its renewal. The interior is, of course, complete with the wicker seats and black rubber flooring topped with beautiful Coco Mat floor mats that easily bring additional zing to the inside of this Italian gem. Powered by the 633cc 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission, it is the perfect get-around car for a provincial area. It’s agreed that roughly 400 were produced between 1958 and 1969, and of those, fewer than 100 remain in existence today. The Fiat 600 line was introduced in 1955, supplanting the well-known but vastly underpowered and diminutive Fiat 500. The 600 enjoyed many variants and sold roughly 2.5 million units worldwide in 15 years of production. Knud Reimers, a Swedish maritime architect, designed Agneta, an 82-foot ketch named after his daughter, which was built in 1948. The stunning boat belonged to Gianni Agnelli, chairman of Fiat, from 1956 to 1982, during which time Agnelli enjoyed sailing to various Mediterranean ports and visiting the many towns and villages. In order to make getting around easier, he ordered a small, open car that could be kept on the boat and easily hoisted over the side. The result was the Jolly. Fitted with a fringed surrey top, wicker seats and a very carefree style and purpose, the Jolly was styled by Ghia. This one is an exceptional opportunity to acquire one of the cutest cars ever made; perfect for a second resort home or placement in a big office or den, these bring a smile to anyone who sees them.
S167 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Spider ZHWGU22T98LA06700 $120,000.00 $130,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Giallo Pearl over Giallo. Named for a most difficult breed of bull, the Gallardo was a ferocious fighting beast, much like this 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Finished in Pearl Yellow under a black canvas soft top with two-tone Nero Perseus and Giallo Taurus single-needle stitched leather interior, this machine sports a purposeful stance. Inside the cockpit, the bright yellow seats include both power adjustability and heating for seasonably cold mornings. Rolling on silver Callisto wheels, yellow brake calipers help stop the Gallardo Spyder in a timely fashion as well as provide a nice contrast to the searing bright paint that adorns the exterior. Power for this mid-engine “Raging Bull” comes from a 5.0L/500 HP V-10 DOHC engine mated to Lamborghini’s E-gear 6-speed select-shift automatic transmission that sports paddle shifters and is designed to shift faster than a manual transmission. All of the V-10’s raucous power is delivered securely to the pavement through an all-wheel-drive system, giving a driver confidence to push this drop top to its limits. There is little question that the Gallardo represented a significant milestone for Lamborghini. It’s no secret that the firm struggled for solvency throughout its storied history, but that all changed when Volkswagen Group purchased the Italian supercar manufacturer in 1998 and put Audi in charge of stewardship of the Lamborghini brand. Audi delicately balanced the Italian passion that is such an important part of the overall driving experience with German precision to give the 21st-century Lamborghinis the highest build quality in the firm’s history. The Gallardo became Lamborghini’s best-selling car ever, with more than 14,000 examples produced in more than a decade of production. This particular Gallardo Spyder comes with a tool kit, air inflator and car cover. Showing a mere 12,194 miles on the odometer, this stunning machine will grant its new owner the open-air Lamborghini experience.
S168 2015 Bentley Continental GT3-R SCBFS8ZA8FC048449 $250,000.00 $300,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Glacier White over Beluga leather. Perhaps the reviews by “Motor Trend” summed this car up best with the pronouncement that, “no car this big, this heavy, should feel this agile,” as they put an early Continental GT3-R through a competition-level road test. Truth be told, the Bentley brand has been associated with performance engineering for decades, and this vehicle, showing just 500 miles, has been personally signed by the GT3 Bentley racers who drive the race-only versions in open events. However, the passenger-car release was more than a stripped-down weekend café machine. It is a luxury vehicle on ultra-steroids. Indeed, the highly developed twin-turbocharged-and-intercooled 32-valve DOHC 4.0L V-8 engine is capable of 572 HP, with high-boost turbochargers and a titanium-component exhaust system. In turn, an 8-speed quick-shift automatic transmission keeps it in its optimal power band unless discretion or concern for speeding citations takes precedence. This Bentley is painted Glacier White with a Beluga interior, and features premium power-adjustable sports seats with quilted Alcantara panels and GT3-R embroidered logos, a carbon-fiber fascia and console pattern with herringbone weave, drilled alloy pedals, a sports steering wheel with black multilayer Alcantara outer rim, gear-shift paddles and the GT3-R gear level in Beluga multilayer Alcantara. The rear seat is absent in this model. Easing down from formidable rates of acceleration (to put it mildly) are carbon-ceramic brakes with green-painted calipers. Indeed, in the interest of weight savings and durability, this car has a carbon-fiber front splitter, fixed rear spoiler, sill extensions, door mirrors, rear diffuser and engine cover. Touches of color beyond the basic black and white is sparsely attended to with GT3-R logos, race-stripes and union flag decals. Should you decide to indeed test the limits of its potential, a new-in-the-box racing helmet will also be included. While sports cars of smaller dimensions are perhaps more nimble, the GT3-R offered here sets a regal standard in supercar functionality.
S169 1931 Chrysler Imperial CG Roadster CG1655 $150,000.00 $175,000.00 $82,500 €71,250 -45% Dark Red over Tan leather. The beautiful Imperial line of Chryslers would create defining moments in American automobile production, and this 1931 CG roadster is magnificent by any measurement. Built to compete with the more established luxury brands but featuring Chrysler’s increased understanding of technology, this model year is considered the first of the second-generation Imperial releases, and the car presented here retains its original LeBaron body and is one of an estimated 100 produced in 1931. Its restoration was completed by Harry Siemens in 1994, and it won a number of accolades including a first-place award at the 1994 Silverado Concours d’Elegance. One major Imperial component that year was the new inline 8-cylinder engine, whose 384 CI displacement created enough power to propel this vehicle to speeds in excess of 90 MPH. Chrysler’s engineering developers selected the 4-speed manual transmission, 4-wheel leaf-spring suspension and 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Riding on a 145-inch wheelbase, it utilizes a beam front axle and live rear axle. Marketed toward an exclusive clientele, this roadster is painted in a sportsman-like dark red with beige pinstripe and features the long-hood styling that denotes the true classics of this era. This look includes dual front road lamps, dual side-mount spares equipped with accessory mirrors, and dual Klaxon horns. There are draft deflectors and a rear-mounted trunk, with the upgrade of more modern turn signals. A rebuilt water pump and new brakes has been installed as well. Finally, this CG roadster rides on chrome wire wheels with wide whitewall tires. The Best of Show winner at a Chrysler-oriented Bay Area Fall Classic event and second-place finishes at both the 1996 and 1997 Silverado Concours d’Elegance, its most recent honor came as the Stanford Cup winner at the 2012 Palo Alto Concours d’Elegance.
S170 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback 8T02C174067 $240,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black over Black. This 1968 Mustang fastback takes a well-known popular big-screen Mustang theme to the next level with big horsepower, an ultra-stout frame, adjustable ride height and the ability to both dazzle at shows and cruise effortlessly on the highway. Constructed by Henry’s Hot Rods with more than 900 HP in mind, the “Black Mamba” Mustang is built around an Art Morrison Max-G chassis that was customized for the engine, tire/wheel size, suspension and braking requirements. To adapt the 1968 Mustang sheet metal to the frame, the body was stretched and channeled before fitting the body kit, followed by the application of flawless PPG base-clear black paint with striking Candy Apple Red metal-flake stripes. A custom-fabricated carbon-fiber hood pivots automatically from the side to reveal a Carroll Shelby all-aluminum 427 CI V-8 engine that has been bored and stroked to 490 CI. The dual-quad powerplant produces a naturally aspirated 704 HP, with 954 HP available when the onboard NOS Pro Shot nitrous-oxide system is activated. Custom headers dump into 3-inch stainless-steel exhaust with side-exit pipes that run through the frame to avoid restrictive bends. A custom four-stage dry-sump oiling system provides lubrication while also avoiding fitment issues with the rack-and-pinion steering. The massive power is transferred through a Tremec 600 TKO 5-speed to a 9-inch rear end with a Strange Engineering 3.73 third member and 35-spline axles. An Air Ride Technologies’ Ride Pro suspension, which controls ride height at all four wheels, is capable of dropping the car to a ground clearance of less than two inches. The custom black leather interior includes Carroll Shelby signature seats and white-face Classic Instruments’ gauges. More than 6,000 man-hours of labor went into the build. As a custom-fabricated, fully framed street machine, the purpose-built Black Mamba 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback has been carefully handcrafted throughout with a combination of old-school mentality and Carroll Shelby attitude.
S171 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive WP0BF2A74JL170070 $165,000.00 $185,000.00 $165,000 €142,499 Mid Chalk over Black leather. The 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive is the ultimate getaway car. Roomy, fast and comfortable, this four-door wonder handles like it is on rails. The Executive edition of the Panamera features a wheelbase that has been extended by 5.9 inches, providing a cavernous rear seating area large enough to seat two NBA-sized passengers in comfort and style. The rear cabin features heated, multi-way and adjustable seats, a panoramic sunroof, retractable rear sun shade, its own zone climate control, touchscreen and soft-close doors. Although the Executive edition weighs 200 more pounds than the standard wheelbase Panamera, the additional girth and length have not affected the stupendous performance of this machine with a factory-rated top speed of 190 MPH, a 0-60 MPH time of 3.5 seconds and a quarter-mile run topping at 121 MPH in 11.6 seconds. That’s some scintillating performance for a car of this size. This generous supply of power is provided by a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V-8 engine that produces 550 HP and 567 lb-ft of torque while connected to an 8-speed PDK automatic transmission. The handling is equally impressive with all-wheel-drive, Porsche Active Suspension Management, active roll bars and Porsche’s Integrated 4D chassis-control system making the car go where it’s pointed. The contact patch is provided by massive 35-series tires mounted on 21-inch Sport Design wheels painted in Satin Platinum, a $3,920 option. The Chalk exterior is a striking, $3,310 option that very much approximates the old Stone Gray hue from the Porsche 356 color palette. The light exterior stands in contrast to the black full-leather interior. It seems ironic that so much attention has been lavished on the rear passengers on the Executive line of the Panamera when those in the know understand that the real fun begins when one slides in behind the steering wheel of this machine. This Panamera Turbo Executive has only 2,040 actual miles and is ready to conquer the open road.
S172 1978 Porsche 911SC 911 820 0611 $50,000.00 $75,000.00 $51,150 €44,175 Mid Talbot Yellow over Cork. When Porsche introduced its new 911SC in 1978, there were few clues to tell the difference between it and a 1977 Porsche 911. If you looked closely, however, you would notice new flares over fat tires, giving a promise of performance that the car delivered in spades. The 911SC, aside from the Turbo model, was the replacement for 1977’s 911S. In place of a 2.7L engine, it had an improved version of Porsche’s SOHC air-cooled flat-6, now displacing 3.0L and making 180 HP. Over the years, Porsches have become legendary for the way the whole package somehow becomes much more than the sum of the parts. That maxim held true for the 911SC as the light rear-engine sports car scooted through the quarter mile in 14.8 seconds in testing for “Car and Driver” magazine. In keeping with Porsche’s dogged determination of continuous improvement on a tried-and-true theme, each 911SC came with a smoother-shifting 5-speed manual transmission and a new Porsche clutch disc hub which made low-speed driving far smoother than on previous iterations. In classic Porsche fashion, interiors were their unique blend of high-performance attitude and GT comfort. In this car, you’ll find Cork color-coded leather Recaro sport seats and a sport steering wheel, power windows and sunroof, and a CD stereo. The exterior with bright trim in Talbot Yellow includes front and rear spoilers and black Fuchs alloy wheels. This 911SC comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, service records and a tool kit to give an impression of a car intended for serious driving. The result of the improvements made for the 1978 Porsche 911SC make it a modern classic. Not many other cars of the era can match the 911SC for its combination of incredible quality, attention to detail and driving experience.
S173 2012 Ferrari 458 Challenge 189294 $150,000.00 $170,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Giallo Pearl over Nero race. Chassis No. 189294, this 2012 Ferrari 458 Challenge is a full-bore racing machine with impressive credentials that include being campaigned in the Ferrari Challenge Europe circuit in 2013 and 2014 by the highly competitive AF Corse racing team. Designed and engineered specifically for Ferrari’s popular Challenge single-make racing series, the 458 Challenge was presented to the public at the Ferrari Annual Dealer Meeting in Maranello, Italy, on July 14, 2010. Befitting for its mission, the 458 Challenge is lighter than its road-going counterpart through the use of thinner body panels, carbon-fiber replacement panels and Lexan polycarbonate windows and windshield. Handling is upgraded with aluminum bushings, stiffer springs and a lower ride height to complement the F1-Trac traction-control system, which can be completely switched off; racing-grade Brembo disc brakes are also in the mix. The Challenge is further distinguished from the standard 458 with a full race cockpit fitted with a roll cage, side-window sliding inserts, a racing fuel-filler cap, Pirelli P-Zero tires on 19-inch center-lock wheels, racing exhaust and front and rear tow hooks. The car was also upgraded with the Challenge Series Evoluzione aero package, comprising a carbon-fiber front splitter and adjustable rear wing, both mandated by Ferrari for the 2014 Challenge Series. The production-tuned 4.5L DOHC engine turns out 570 HP at 9,000 RPM to the car’s F1 dual-clutch gearbox. Chassis No. 189294 finished third overall in the 2014 Challenge Europe season, placing fourth in its final race in the Ferrari Challenge World Final at Abu Dhabi in December 2014. Refreshed by AF Corse before being sent to the United States, it presents in Pearl Giallo and incorporates a Sabelt Titan Carbonio XL racing seat with a Sabelt safety harness. This 2012 Ferrari 458 Challenge has been maintained stateside by specialists Black Horse Motorwerks in Stilwell, Kansas.
S174 1963 Volkswagen Samba Bus 23 Window 1086047 $175,000.00 $195,000.00 $187,000 €161,499 Mid Teal and White over Green. There is something about all that glass and curved metal that have made the T1-series Volkswagen 23-window transporter buses so popular. Noted as the Samba option, this vehicle was the most expensive and luxurious of the company’s commercial releases, and 1963 would mark the finale of the curved rear windows that differentiated it from the later 21-window models. A rotisserie restoration of this bus back to its like-original specifications was completed in 2018 by Cookers Restoration and Fabrication in Maryland. The design features the pivot-opening side doors instead of the sliding door found on standard models, but the most impressive component was the open-air retractable canvas sunroof, whose configuration also used the eight small additional windows across the upper rolled roof line that gave the model its 23-window designation. Originally developed for touring the Alps, their beauty and utility has recently spearheaded renewed interest in this specialty model. Like all Volkswagens, economy and ease of maintenance meant the ubiquitous 1200cc/40 HP engine, which was mounted under the rear luggage area and mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. The engine location allowed the driver magnificent visibility through the split-glass windshield. Sambas were painted in two-tone combinations, with this example’s body finished in Teal with white upper paint that extends into a V-shaped point at center of the front bumper. This color combination was also translated to the interior with its thin chrome piping. The bumpers are painted white with chrome inserts and the painted steel wheels feature chrome hubcaps. From the sliding rag-top-style sunroof to the Volkswagen chrome emblem on the nose, this is a vehicle that sums up travel enjoyment with a sense of class. Today, with 23-window model Samba transport vans becoming harder to find in any shape, this fully refinished example will be a terrific addition to any collection regardless of focus.
S175 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod VC560032828 $150,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Pearl Gold and Pearl White over Tan. No detail was left unattended in the transformation of this 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air into its present incarnation as a mouth-watering Resto Mod. A frame-up build completed to the highest standards, it opens the show with blazingly iridescent custom two-tone Pearl Gold and Pearl White House of Kolor paint laid over expertly prepared sheet metal. Accented with brilliant chrome and tinted glass, this Bel Air is shod with low-profile Dunlop radial tires on custom 17-inch front and 18-inch rear 10-spoke wheels with polished rims and gray-painted center sections. The stance is just right, with a slight forward rake made possible by the staggered wheel diameters and custom front suspension employing upper and lower tubular A-arms and coilovers. A well-built and show-quality 468 CI Chevrolet big-block V-8 supplies the motive power using dual Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetors on an aluminum intake and set into an engine compartment that shows off both excellent design and outstanding craftsmanship. Impressively detailed, the 468 features tube headers feeding dual exhaust, finned aluminum valve covers and a unique custom air cleaner that replicates the original oil-bath style. A floor-shifted automatic transmission and Ford 9-inch rear on custom rear suspension complete the car’s beefy drivetrain, and Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes are on hand to ensure trouble-free braking. Dave Putnam of Orange, California, was responsible for designing and executing the Bel Air’s one-of-a-kind interior. Highlighted by beautiful Italian leather hand stitched by Putnam, it is truly the work of an artisan, with taut leather surfaces over custom forms, sculpted padding and flawless contrasting stitching. An uncluttered and clean design throughout, it features power windows, air conditioning, and a Pioneer stereo/DVD/Bluetooth receiver set into the custom console. Characterized by overall unity of design and unflinching attention to detail, this impressive 1956 Bel Air Resto Mod is impressive in every possible way.
S176 1950 Mercury Custom Coupe 50SL107018M $200,000.00 $230,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Black Cherry over Sandalwood. The era of the lead sled will be instantly recalled when you first see this 1950 Merc. From “American Graffiti” to the modern era, the 1949-51 body design has come to exemplify the idea of “low down” when it comes to personized restyling. This car, whose seven-year custom build shows a remarkable amount of forethought and execution, may seem familiar as well. Prior to the application of the custom-mixed Black Cherry paint, this creation was featured at the 2012 SEMA show in bare metal, and both bodywork and paint were completed by GMP Cars in Novato, California. Stunning from every angle, it makes use of modern engineering to be enjoyable today. In keeping with a FoMoCo-exclusive theme, under the expansive hood is a Ford Racing 302 CI crate engine that utilizes Holley Terminator fuel injection, all nicely blended for a retro-like appearance with minimal chrome work. This is backed by a modern 200R4 overdrive transmission, a narrowed 9-inch rear end and a Strange 4.11 gearset and axles. The car rides on a custom-fitted spec-built Art Morrison chassis that features Ride-Tech air bags, rack-and-pinion steering, 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes and a 4-link rear suspension. The exterior is most impressive, with a true 3-inch top chop, custom HID headlights and buckets, and front and rear bumpers redesigned to flow with the car’s smoothed body lines, accented with mild grille and tail-light customizations. Inside is a sandalwood-tone leather interior with burgundy piping, complete with functional quarter-windows, Vintage Air climate control, an aftermarket steering wheel and a factory-rendered dash styling with updated monitoring. The car’s finishing touch is multi-spoke custom HRE wheels wearing modern low-profile rubber, bringing the car into the 21st century. Featured in “Rod & Custom” magazine, this 1950 Merc lead sled has already drawn attention and accolades, and it will be a source of satisfaction with whoever owns it next.
S177 2007 Ferrari 599GTB 154628 $140,000.00 $165,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso Corsa over Nero leather. There is no doubting the Formula 1 heritage embodied in this 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. Its spectacularly sculpted shape begins with a classically styled front end featuring peaked front fenders and flush-mounted headlights above air intakes flanking the trademark egg-crate grille. The Fiorano’s body sides rise to crest over the rear wheels and culminate in a spoilered tail with single round tail lights above simple chromed round exhaust tips. These time-honored Ferrari design cues provide the canvas for a fascinating array of technically inspired details such as the skillfully shaped flying buttress C-pillars that direct airflow around the back glass and over the rear spoiler, working with the rear diffuser to maximize downforce at the rear. The car’s lines are accented by the placement of engine vents in the front fenders and reverse-angled lower rear intakes for cooling the rear brakes. There’s more great Ferrari tech beneath the skin in the form of the centrally mounted 6.0L/611 HP DOHC V-12 engine that exemplifies Ferrari’s noted ability to combine style and technical elements, especially in the large twin intake plenums that dominate the engine compartment. Finished in iconic Rosso Corsa over a Nero leather interior, this 2007 Fiorano coupe shows just 28,117 miles. It is equipped with the paddle-shifted F1 sequential gearbox and optioned with carbon-ceramic disc brakes with red calipers, Scuderia cloisonné fender shields and front and rear parking sensors. Interior features include carbon-fiber driving and lower cabin zones, Daytona-style bucket seats, a Giallo Logo instrument panel, a Bose Hi-Fi sound system with 6-CD changer, Telematic navigation, an electrochromic inside mirror and Homelink connectivity. The car’s paint is protected with clear bra film on the front end and outside mirror caps. Offered with service history dating back to 2010, it received an extensive service on May 19, 2017, and is ready to deliver the exhilarating road experience that remains exclusive to the Prancing Horse.
S178 1969 Porsche 911 119300262 $210,000.00 $240,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Polo Red over Black. To many Porsche enthusiasts, the 1969 Porsche 911S is the ultimate prize of the first-generation long-hood cars. In 1969, Porsche made major engineering improvement strides to the entire 911 model range—T, E and S—by increasing the wheelbase 2.2 inches and thereby reducing the rear-end overhang, flaring the rear wheel arches to accept wider contact-patch wheels/tires, adopting fuel injection for increased performance and emission-control compliance, and reverting to a magnesium engine case to reduce rear-end weight. These changes were of major benefit to the high-performance 911S. Equipped with Bosch Fuel Injection, larger intake and exhaust valves, and a higher-lift, higher-duration camshaft, the 911S now produced 190 HP—an amazing 1.56 HP per cubic inch of displacement. The 911 S also featured 4-wheel independent suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes with vented rotors and a silky smooth 5-speed manual gearbox. It was the ultimate 911 of its time and is still lusted after to this day by the most ardent Porsche loyalists. The featured 1969 911S has undergone a cosmetic and mechanical restoration performed by Dallas Euro Cars. Finished in the factory-correct color of Polo Red, the exterior presentation is further accented by the 911S appearance group trim package—consisting of aluminum rocker-panel covers and wider deco trim on the front and rear bumpers—a pair of 3-inch driving lights mounted to the chrome horn grilles, chrome front-bumper guards and a complete set of polished 6-inch-wide Fuchs alloy wheels mounted on radial tires. The black leather interior and the square-weave dashboard trim are signature items on this 911S. The car is additionally equipped with a factory-installed electric sunroof and a Blaupunkt radio. This 911S comes complete with the original tool roll, spare tire and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
S179 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Roadster 11304412004654 $70,000.00 $85,000.00 $50,600 €43,700 -28% White over Tan leather. Mercedes-Benz launched the 230SL at the 1963 Geneva Auto Show as the successor to the 190SL and 300SL roadsters. Evolutionary refinements and improved performance culminated to create this 1969 280SL, factory-equipped with the 2.8L inline 6-cylinder engine that powered the series until production ended two years later in 1971. The SL stands for sport light, and as such, the 280SL was constructed with a lightweight aluminum hood, doors and trunk deck. With Bosch fuel-injection and a single overhead camshaft, the 2.8L inline 6-cylinder engine was rated at 180 HP. The optional floor-shifted 4-speed automatic transmission delivers power to the rear wheels, while steering and 4-wheel independent suspension that features front double wishbones with an anti-sway bar and rear swing axle with camber-compensator combine to deliver assured road holding. Stopping this drop top from its 120 MPH top speed is a relatively tame affair with 4-wheel power-assisted disc brakes. The roadster body is finished in white with distinctive stacked headlamp assemblies, signature three-point star, chrome grille and chrome bumpers designed to give an intentional nod to the classic 300SL roadster by designer Paul Bracq. Sporting performance and handling join the solid construction and ride of a large sedan in the spacious two-place cockpit. The grand-touring leather interior is outfitted for long-distance comfort with deep-cushion low-back bucket seats over dark brown loop carpet. VDO instruments, Becker Europa stereo and clock are within easy sight and reach of the steering wheel. This car rolls on Uniroyal Tiger Paw radial tires mounted on factory-issue steel wheels topped with body-color-keyed star-logo full wheel covers. This 280SL stands ready to deliver a confident sport-touring ride in classic Mercedes-Benz style.
S180 2001 Ferrari 360 Spider 123547 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Giallo Modena over Nero leather. The Ferrari 360 Modena represented a significant technical advance in the Maranello company’s mid-engined V-8 lineage and a noteworthy styling success for coachbuilder Pininfarina. This 2001 Ferrari 360 Modena Spider offered at 14,875 original miles exemplifies the car “Road & Track” magazine described as “more than just an open version of the Modena.” Dressed in the classic color combination of Giallo Modena over a Nero leather interior, it is a fine example that has received solid care and maintenance. One of the Modena Spider’s signature features is the glass panel that reveals the potent 3.6L 40-valve DOHC V-8 engine, its red crinkle-painted plenums and cavernous air boxes on full display to passers-by. This car’s gated manual shifter is an attractive feature whose timeless charm is magnified when taking the next gear while cocooned in the rare carbon-fiber sport seats. The first road-going Ferrari with an aluminum space frame, the Modena was very well appointed with a wide array of standard features that include adaptive shock absorbers, ABS, power windows and air conditioning. The Spider’s fully automated soft-top assembly is a sophisticated design of superb quality. It lowers in just 20 seconds, with a push of a button on the center console, to reveal occupant-friendly twin roll hoops covered in polyurethane foam padding wrapped in leather and fared into the bodywork in a style reminiscent of many vintage open Ferrari race cars. Additionally equipped with an optional rear Challenge grille, carbon-fiber racing seats, modular wheels and new Hankook tires, this 2001 Spider has clear bra protection on the front end and side mirrors. A major service on June 20, 2015, at 14,124 miles included new a timing belt, tensioner, filters and fluids, and a recent service was completed on the convertible top. This sensational mid-engine V-8 Ferrari is offered complete with keys, manuals, books, tool kit, car cover and service records.
S180.1 2010 Ferrari 599GTB 173137 $250,000.00 $300,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Nero Opaco over Nero leather. At the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari unveiled the new 599 GTB “Fiorano”, which was positioned to be the successor to the popular, front-engine 575M Maranello. Styled by Ken Okuyama at Pininfarina, the 599 GTB was designed to be a front-engine, grand-touring car that combined one of Ferrari’s most powerful engines with advanced aerodynamics, new materials and high-level technology to yield the most advanced Ferrari GT ever built. The first Ferrari production car to feature an aluminum chassis, the 599 GTB was powered by a 6.0L (5999cc) naturally-aspirated Tipo F140C V-12 engine capable of producing 612 HP, which made it the most powerful production Ferrari GT car up to that point. The beastly power was fed through either a 6-speed manual or Ferrari’s “F1 Superfast” semi-automatic transmission, which could enact a gear change in just 100 milliseconds. With record-setting power and torque, combined in a lightweight (3,922-pound) body with aerodynamic undertray, venturi tunnels and downforce generating C-pillars, the 599 GTB was capable of a 0-62 MPH time of just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 205 MPH. The 1,762-original-mile example on offer is one of only three 599 GTBs finished in Nero Opaco paint, complemented by a black leather interior that features custom contrasting stitching and electric seats. This 2010 example also includes the $30,095 HGTE package (Handling Gran Turismo Evoluzione) comprising stiffer springs, a rear anti-roll bar, recalibrated Delphi MagneRide magneto-rheological shock absorbers, all of which work in unison with the on-board computer to boost performance when the car is set into “Sport” or “Race” mode with a twist of the Manettino dial mounted on the suede-covered steering wheel. Other details of this unique 599 GTB include the F1 Superfast semi-automatic gearbox, F1 Trac traction control, B-xenon headlamps, carbon-ceramic disc brakes, carbon-fiber interior details and mirrors, fuel door and door handles, 5-spoke alloy wheels, and front and rear parking sensors.

S182 1974 De Tomaso Pantera THPNND06711 $135,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso Corsa over Nero leather. Showing 27,375 believed-original miles and presenting in excellent overall condition, this 1974 DeTomaso Pantera is a highly original example with a single repaint in its correct red color. Alejandro de Tomaso’s collaboration with Ford began in 1963 when he created the Vallelunga, a hand-built mid-engined grand-tourer using Cortina power. The elegant and exceptionally rare Mangusta coupe introduced in 1967 featured 289 CI and 302 CI versions of Ford’s venerated small-block, but the DeTomaso-Ford alliance peaked with the Pantera, a decidedly Italian-flavored mid-engined design by American Tom Tjaarda of Ghia, the son of 1936 Lincoln Zephyr designer John Tjaarda. The Pantera departed from DeTomaso’s established practice of using a steel-backbone chassis in favor of a monocoque structure with subframes. Its all-independent double-wishbone suspension (comprising coil springs and front and rear sway bars) and 4-wheel power disc brakes were Italian design conventions, but to the American buyers at which it was aimed, its most important feature was the Ford 351 Cleveland V-8 mounted amidships and driving a bulletproof ZF 5-speed manual gearbox. This 1974 Pantera retains its matching-numbers 351 CI Cleveland V-8 engine, which is fitted with the correct and recently rebuilt Motorcraft 4300D 4-barrel carburetor, Ford 4V intake manifold, dual-point distributor and factory air cleaner. A new aluminum two-way split-flow radiator replaces the original unit for improved cooling; the original radiator is included with the car. The black interior remains original and in very good condition, with the seats, carpets, headliner dash and interior panels all showing little to no wear. In addition to all-original glass, the car features power windows, functional gauges, the collapsible spare with correct anchor, tool kit and pouch, the original warranty card and owner’s manual. Riding on trademark Campagnolo magnesium wheels with Pantera-specific Goodyear Arriva tires, this exceptional Pantera was recently serviced by Classic Showcase of Oceanside, California, and comes with a Marti Report.
S183 2012 Aston Martin V12 Vantage SCFEBBCF2CGS00905 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Jet Black over Obisidian Black leather. The Vantage name has been associated with high-performance versions of Aston Martin’s grand-touring models since the mid-1960s, beginning with the 1961 DB4 inline-6-powered coupe that made a certain British spy a household name. In the years that have passed, the Vantage’s power source has doubled the number of cylinders to the 12 that now line up in V formation beneath the vented hood of this Jet Black 2012 Aston Martin V-12 Vantage. In fact, it’s the Gaydon, UK, manufacturer’s largest engine, tucked into its smallest GT coupe, a straightforward naturally aspirated device devoid of such complexities as variable valve timing and direct injection. That might sound overly simple compared to many of today’s hyper-complex performance automobiles, but it delivers 510 HP at 6,500 RPM and 420 lb-ft of torque at 5,750 RPM (copious servings of real-world power) through a 6-speed manual transaxle and a sturdy limited-slip differential to 19×11-inch rear silver forged-aluminum wheels fitted with Vantage-specific Pirelli P-Zero tires. The performance enabled by this combination is formidable: 0-60 MPH comes up in 4.2 seconds, and the Vantage tops out at 190 MPH. The Vantage is an athletic machine with taut handling thanks to 4-wheel independent suspension using upper and lower A-arms, coil springs and the electronically controlled shock absorbers that are part of its dynamic stability-control system and carbon-ceramic ventilated disc brakes—complete with yellow-painted calipers—for immense stopping power. It is also as well appointed as one would expect from a hand-built, bespoke Aston Martin, its quality Jet Black exterior finish matched inside with Obsidian Black Connolly leather, Alcantara headliner and accents, and Piano Black wood veneers. Accessorized with air conditioning, heated front seats with memory, pop-up navigation, Aston Martin Premium Audio, Bluetooth and Satellite radio capability, and steering-wheel audio controls, this V-12 Vantage coupe is exceptionally fresh at just 1,480 miles and a worthy heir to the Aston Martin Vantage name.
S184 1999 Ferrari F355 Spider Serie Fiorano 115427 $130,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso Corsa over Crema leather. The ultimate expression of the revolutionary F355, this is Serial No. 1 of 100 Ferrari F355 limited-edition Serie Fiorano Spiders built in 1999. Ferrari’s stature as the maker of the world’s most coveted sports cars was under serious challenge in the early 1990s, but the company reversed its fortunes in dramatic fashion with the F355 unveiled in the spring of 1994. This all-new mid-engined design bore more than a passing resemblance to its 348 predecessor, but the similarities were only skin deep; beneath the surface was an all-new and stunning performer that set a new standard for Ferrari performance. The F355’s longitudinally mounted 3.5L V-8 engine was a completely new design employing highly sophisticated 5-valve cylinder heads, titanium connecting rods and highly tuned intake and exhaust systems to aid in reaching the F355’s outlandish 8,500 RPM redline and 375 HP output. The final rendition of the F355 was the 1999 Serie Fiorano, limited to 100 examples. This very exclusive Ferrari drew heavily from the famed Competizione versions of 1995, using that model’s suspension that included firmer calibrations in the springs and electronically controlled shock absorbers, a larger-diameter sway bar, cross-drilled brake rotors and painted calipers with racing brake pads, Challenge rear grilles and Scuderia Ferrari cloisonné fender shields. Exclusive interior features included carbon-fiber shifter paddles and trim pieces, an Alcantara-covered steering wheel and a silver dash plaque declaring this example as No. 1 in Serie Fiorano production. Serie Fiorano No. 1 is traditionally finished in Ferrari Red with a tan interior. It is equipped with Ferrari’s fabulous paddle-shifted F1 automatic transmission and has traveled less than 200 miles since the engine’s last belt service. Cared for by the same owner since 2002 and always stored in a climate-controlled environment, this is a singularly exclusive example of the car the late Phil Hill nominated as one of the 10 best Ferraris ever built.
S185 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 194677S104309 $140,000.00 $160,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Red. A comprehensive frame-off restoration was performed on this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, resulting in a high-quality example that invites the closest inspection. The year 1967 marked the final development of the first-generation line of big-block Mark IV engines that began in the 1965 models with the 396 CI solid-lifter L78 rated at 425 HP. In 1966, Corvette engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov added 31 cubes (and, he jokingly claimed, shaved significant weight from the cast-iron block) and served up a choice of a hydraulically cammed version rated at 390 HP and a 425 HP solid-lifter version originally rated at 450 HP until GM executives downgraded it to keep insurance companies off the scent. When big-block Corvette sales zoomed from 1965’s 2,157 units to 10,374 for 1966, Chevrolet answered by doubling the big-block lineup to four choices, including two versions with tri-power carburetion rated at 400 HP with a hydraulic cam and 435 HP with solid lifters. The L68 hydraulically cammed V-8 offered the best of both worlds to 2,101 buyers: ease of maintenance and the smooth tractability of the triple Holley 2-barrel induction system, with the additional benefit of the same 460 lb-ft of torque available in the brutish 435 HP L71. This restored 1967 Sting Ray convertible retains its matching-numbers L68 427/400 HP big-block—complete with a matching tri-power carburetion setup—backed by a Muncie 4-speed and 3.70:1 Positraction rear end, both matching numbers. Finished to outstanding standards of fit and finish, including the pristine undercarriage, it matches brilliant Rally Red paint with a red interior with leather seating, a soft top and red auxiliary hardtop. Appropriately for a mid-year big-block convertible, it is well optioned with the K66 transistor ignition, power steering and power disc brakes, side exhaust, Soft Ray-tinted glass, power windows, headrests, an AM/FM radio and cast-aluminum bolt-on wheels. Included are an NCRS Shipping Data Report and a photo album documenting the restoration
S186 2003 Porsche 911/996 GT2 WP0AB29933S696146 $145,000.00 $175,000.00 $137,500 €118,749 -5% Silver over Grey. There are two things that are “must knows” about the Porsche 911 GT2: one, it is exceedingly fast; and two, it demands absolute focus and skill from the driver. Based on the 996 Turbo, the GT2 coaxes roughly an additional 50 HP from the engine and weighs in at 220 pounds less than its brethren. The weight reduction is attributed to rear-wheel-drive replacing the all-wheel-drive in the standard Turbo. However, the mechanical specification differences are purely academic, as it is the raw-edged persona of the GT2 that separates it from the standard Turbo. The GT2 is devoid of any electronic intervention devices—such as Porsche Active Stability Management—or any electronically controlled aerodynamic appendages to compensate for driver error. Porsche did not allow a sunroof option because it would disturb the air pattern to the fixed rear wing. It also did not offer an automatic transmission, since “real drivers” only throw 6-speed manual transmissions. As one noted Porsche engineer said, “The Turbo is a knife, the GT2 is a razor-edge sword.” Just as a controlled razor can precision slice and dice, all is well until it isn’t. Enter the world of the GT2. Conversely, when a skilled driver masters the GT2, it is the equivalent of car-control nirvana. The GT2 was the fastest 911 available in 2003 with a terminal velocity speed of 198 MPH. The GT2 is externally identifiable by its model-only specific front-bumper valence—composed of a prominent air-dam skid plate, large cut-outs for cooling the brakes and oil cooler, and an upper-mounted horizonal vent to extract and direct air-flow for additional front downforce. As one of just 233 produced for the 2003 model year, this GT2 shows 12,600 miles on its odometer. This Porsche comes with service receipts, an owner’s manual, a tool kit and a battery maintainer. The GT2 is a thrill ride like few other cars on Earth.
S187 1938 Alfa Romeo 6C2300 Custom Coupe 811077 $225,000.00 $275,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Tuscany Tan and Roman Ivory over Cream. Dubbed the “Italian Stallion,” this nicely customized 1938 Alfa Romeo Coupe combines Italian style and grace with good old-fashioned American muscle in a multiple-award winning rolling sculpture. Built by Bart Bartoni, a professional with more than 60 years of experience in designing and building custom cars, the Stallion began as a bare Alfa 8C 2900 body sans chassis, suspension and driveline. Bartoni massaged it into its present form by welding the back doors and lengthening the front doors, rounding the corners and chopping the roof 3 inches. The front and rear glass were both laid back 6 inches, emphasizing the reborn coupe’s sleek profile. The body was then finished in PPG three-stage custom Tuscany Tan and Roman Ivory paint, with a tri-color pinstripe bordering the two colors at the beltline and denoting the car’s Italian heritage. The list of tasteful custom exterior touches includes handmade Alfa emblems, side hood louvers, smoothed doors, chromed bumpers with handmade splash aprons, painted 18-inch aluminum wheels with handmade center caps, and lights inlaid into the bumpers. Beneath the Alfa’s long hood is a fuel-injected Corvette LS3 V-8 engine sporting a custom air intake, ceramic-coated headers with dual exhaust, Flowmaster mufflers and quad chromed exhaust tips. TCI front suspension with rack-and-pinion steering, a 4-link-mounted Ford 9-inch rear end and coilover shocks ensure a smooth ride and excellent road manners. The underbody was powder coated to match the color scheme of the car’s interior, which incorporates comfortable Cadillac seats, a vintage-style wood-rimmed steering wheel on a stainless tilt column and beautiful wood and leather trim. The dash alone is a masterpiece of design and craftsmanship, with sculpted door panels flanking a centrally located cluster of white-faced Art Deco-style gauges. Among its many awards, this beautiful custom Alfa Romeo was chosen as a top 10 finalist at Hot August Nights, recognized at SEMA for its build quality and made “Staff Pick” at several Goodguys shows.
S188 1970 Porsche 911 911 023 0431 $135,000.00 $155,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Green race over Race. This is a pure race car that has been prepared, sorted and stands race ready. Starting life as a 1970 Porsche 911, the unibody structure was gutted and put through the rigorous protocol of motorsports preparation. A roll-cage was installed, seam welds replaced spot welds and critical structural areas received gusseting. The dry-sump 3.2L flat-6 engine was extensively modified by Torque Power Racing and features a stroker crankshaft with a twin-plug ignition and custom exhaust headers hooked up to “cookie cutter” megaphones. A prodigious amount of horsepower is transmitted through a 915-based close-ratio 5-speed transaxle with a limited-slip differential. Shifting action is handled by a WEVO shift-kit/shift-coupler setup. Massive 4-wheel disc brakes combined with cockpit-adjustable front-to-rear bias control effectively scrub off speed. The suspension uses coilovers on all four corners—Bilstein shocks enclosed in Eibach springs—and the front features raised spindles to lower the ride height. Contact patch is provided by Fuchs RSR-style racing wheels mounted with Hoosier racing rubber. The data acquisition and recording equipment consists of a Tracmate data logger with GPS module and a Hobbs hour meter. Instrumentation includes the tachometer, oil-temperature gauge, oil-pressure gauge and amp meter. All the requisite safety equipment is installed including a Schroth harness and window net, SPA fire system with internal and external pulls, quick-disconnect steering wheel and an approved fuel cell. Driver comfort is provided by a Recaro XL seat with hook up for a cool suit. This Viper Green 911 RSR Replica is a potent race car that has competed in the Coronado Festival of Speed, SVRA National Championships and the California Festival of Speedway in Fontana. The car also comes with HSR, SVRA and PCA logbooks.
S189 1985 Ferrari 250GT California Replica by Modena GT GT0003 $250,000.00 $300,000.00 $407,000 €351,498 36% Red over Cream. In the 1986 movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck) gave his friend Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) an impressive introduction to, “The 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California. Less than 100 were made. My father spent three years restoring this car. It is his love. It is his passion.” “It is his fault he didn’t lock the garage,” Ferris finishes off for his friend as he enters the garage and begins caressing the car and ogling over the red machine before sliding behind the wheel and firing up the engine. The three cars used in the film were not Ferraris at all, but rather three Modena GT Spyder Californias built by Modena Design and Development in El Cajon, California. This is one of those cars used in the movie, complete with documents from Modena Design attesting to such. Modena incorporated a number of Ferrari-style elements, such as the windshield, turn signals, grille, hood scoops, fender vents and a custom fiberglass body that was supposedly modeled after an MG, creating a close profile to the original Ferrari. The chassis was of the rectangular steel-tube frame design, built by Bob Webb, who worked on Roger Penske’s Zerex Special. After nine months of refreshing and updating by one of the founders of Modena Design, Neil Glassmoyer, this car emerged looking stunning. Chassis No. 0003 of the three cars built, it is powered by a 5.0L V-8 engine fed by four downdraft carburetors, and the attention to detail throughout largely sets the Modena GT Spyder California apart from its competition. The engine uses black crinkle-finished valve coves, retina-searing red paint on the exterior, and the interior reflects all too well the timeless beauty of this machine with rich tan upholstery, exquisite gauges, inspiring switchgear, a period-looking radio and wooden steering wheel.
S190 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 194377S102177 $90,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Elkhart Blue over Blue. Restored to a meticulous level, this final-year Sting Ray coupe is equipped with a matching-numbers L79 350 HP version of the venerable 327 CI V-8 engine. This Corvette comes with its owner’s manual and boasts niceties such as factory air conditioning, a factory AM/FM radio, tinted glass, Rally wheels with redline tires, power steering, power disc brakes and power windows. The distinctive Elkhart Blue exterior is matched with a blue interior. The 1967 Corvette is highly popular with enthusiasts, known for several improvements that made the car the culmination of the mid-year era. Gone were the badges from the hood and flags from the fenders; a single opening with five slots replaced the previous three separate slots in the fenders. The brake lights were revised and the reverse light was a single bar above the license plate, and the aluminum bolt-on wheel option replaced knock-off wheels and now used five lug nuts to hold the wheel in place. The parking brake was hand-operated and situated between the seats instead of under the dashboard. The passenger hand bar above the glovebox was eliminated and the seats were redesigned for enhanced comfort and safety among other design and engineering elements that set the 1967s apart from its predecessors. Many Corvette enthusiasts proclaim the 1967 models to be the absolute zenith of the model, featuring a higher degree of quality control over earlier years, with Chevrolet having dialed in construction of the interior, body and chassis to a level that only served to increase desirability of the two-seater. To many, the 1963-67 mid-year cars are the quintessential Corvettes, making them among the most recognized and exhibiting the purest form of Corvette design. This one, with its shimmering blue exterior, high-performance engine and exceptional roster of options, is itching to be driven, enjoyed and shown off by its next caretaker.
S191 1953 Nash-Healey Le Mans Coupe NHA1275 $75,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Tan and Gold over Tan leather. Having covered a mere 33,866 miles from new, this 1953 Nash-Healey Le Mans Coupe features a body by Pininfarina of Turin, Italy, a chassis by Donald Healey of Warwick, England, and a drivetrain by Nash Motors of Kenosha, Wisconsin; to say it was an international effort may well be an understatement. To boot, the Le Mans edition was produced to celebrate the Nash-Healey’s third-place finish at the 1952 24 Hours of Le Mans. This example is a California car and has the advantage of no rust on the hand-built, all-steel, one-piece body with an aluminum hood and trunk lid. The 1953 model year marked the lowest production with approximately 50 coupes built that year of the 506 built between 1951 and 1954. Under the hood is the tried-and-true Dual Jetfire 252 CI OHV inline 6-cylinder engine which, since the 1951 introduction, received a number of upgrades, such as a lightweight aluminum head, larger displacement and enhanced twin carburetors. An absolute testament to free enterprise, the Nash-Healey sports car was the result of a chance meeting on a cruise between British sports-car maker Donald Healey and the president of the Nash Kelvinator Corporation, George Mason. By the end of the journey, the two men had agreed upon producing a sports car and the roles each company would take in the endeavor. The first cars were built in 1950 and shown at the 1951 Miami Auto Show in February. It was a true sports car in every sense, offering exceptional styling and performance, and featuring a ladder-frame chassis, solid inline 6-cylinder engine, steel body with aluminum hood and trunk lid, and seating for two. For 1952, the Nash-Healey was restyled by Pininfarina and emerged with a unique look, featuring inboard headlights. The international effort resulted in a stratospheric sticker price nearing $6,000. Donald Healey largely just stepped away from the Nash-Healey in order to pursue work on the British sports car over the Anglo-Franco-American car—his British sports cars would be the stuff of legends, but the Nash-Healey Le Mans coupe remains a landmark effort.
S192 1963 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark II BJ7 Convertible HBJ7L/20374 $70,000.00 $80,000.00 $60,500 €52,250 -14% Ivory White over Black leather. A National Austin-Healey Conclave Concours Gold Winner, this 1963 Austin-Healey 3000 MkII BJ7 presents stunningly in Ivory White with chrome knock-off wire wheels mounted on radial tires. Appointed in a contrasting black interior featuring white piping on the front and rear seats, this machine has a matching black convertible top, tonneau cover and boot cover. A wood-rimmed Darrington steering wheel completes the 2+2 cabin of this vintage classic. The 1963 model year was a pivotal one for Austin-Healey. The new 3000 MkII became a far more sophisticated car shedding its prior roadster persona for that of a sports-touring convertible that now featured a newly designed windshield with wind wings, a quick-action folding roof and wind-up side windows. Now there was an Austin-Healey that had the creature comforts necessary for long-distance touring. This stood in sharp contrast to that of the early Healey 3000s, which were spartan roadsters with minimal weather protection, as evidenced by their rudimentary plastic folding top on a demountable frame and detachable Perspex plastic side curtains. The 3000 models were always coveted sports cars that distinguished themselves from their 4-cylinder British rivals with a robust and large 2.9L inline 6-cylinder engine. The popularity of the 3000 has remained constant for five major reasons: its beautiful shape; its inline 6-cylinder engine provides brisk acceleration and ample torque; its interior appointments make for a cabin with creature comfort; its front disc brakes provide exemplary stopping power; and its overdrive transmission provides effortless cruising at freeway speeds. A total of 6,113 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIIs were produced in 1963, and this pristine example is a rare find. The car includes its original owner’s book, factory workshop manual and factory-issued knock-off hammer. The 3000 model really is a timeless classic that ultimately defines itself as one of the most beautiful British roadsters ever created.
S193 1958 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Saloon Coupe LSHF111 $700,000.00 $800,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Blue over Red leather. In April 1955, Rolls-Royce introduced the new Silver Cloud, which would represent the pinnacle of Rolls-Royce offerings all the way up until the end of the 1950s. Featuring its whisper-quiet, 4.9L inline 6-cylinder engine feeding power through a 4-speed automatic transmission, the Silver Cloud maintained the tried-and-true, body-on-frame construction which enabled the chassis to receive all manner of custom coachwork. The 1958 Silver Cloud on offer is one of only two examples (Design SC 20) to receive custom saloon coupe coachwork from the London-based coachbuilder, James Young. Founded as a carriage builder in 1863, James Young would eventually be purchased, in 1937, by London Rolls-Royce dealer Jack Barclay and would go on to create a number of unique bodies for both Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Finished in Midnight Blue with a red pinstripe and St. James red leather interior, this all-aluminum Silver Cloud is the embodiment of British automotive elegance with a sumptuous interior that features a burled-walnut dashboard, door caps and even a fold-down picnic tray. Optioned with power steering, power windows, air conditioning and finish details such as the appropriate tool kit, manual and spare wheel, this Silver Cloud was the focus of a $150,000 restoration (2010-2012), which included $35,000 invested in paint alone. But perhaps even more impressive than the quality of its restoration is the car’s well-documented ownership history. Originally built to the special order of Hollywood producer William Goetz, co-founder of 20th Century Fox, this custom-bodied Rolls-Royce was delivered to Goetz in February 1959 via the Peter Santori dealership in Pasadena, California. Owned by Goetz until his passing in 1969, it then passed on to an East Coast developer who cared for the car until 1992. In 1997, the Silver Cloud was sold to a doctor, who commissioned a restoration. Accepted to the Pebble Beach Concours in 2004 and again in 2015, where it took a third in class, this Silver Cloud represents a unique and desirable piece of Rolls-Royce history. This prestigious motorcar has also been featured on the cover of the Post 55 Silver Cloud newsletter and took home first in class at the RROC Southern California Concours d’Elegance in 2016
S194 1965 Porsche 912 350098 $190,000.00 $230,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Ivory over Black leather and cloth. A benchmark of authenticity, this 1965 Porsche 912 is build sequence No. 98 out of the first 100 built and is believed to be the very first 912 imported to the United States. One of only nine known to exist of this initial production run of 100 cars, it was the subject of a cosmetic and mechanical restoration completed in 2016. This 912 has been bestowed with the Petersen Perfection Award in 2016, selected as one of 55 of the most significant Porsches to be exhibited at the Petersen Museum, and chosen for inclusion in the book “The Porsche Effect” celebrating 70 years of Porsche excellence. The early ancestry of this car is evident in myriad details including the three-gauge instrument cluster, the body-color dashboard devoid of trim face and the plastic-rimmed 4-spoke steering wheel with the “hockey puck” horn button. Not only is this machine a significant piece of Porsche heritage, but its first owner—“Fearless Fred” Goeske—is an automotive legend unto himself. Goeske was a Funny Car driver during the heyday of drag racing in Southern California, running primarily in Mopar machines. He took a short military hiatus during the mid-1960s, but was also in the finance business of arranging car loans for fellow soldiers. While stationed in Germany, he ordered and purchased the No. 98 Porsche 912 finished in its Ivory exterior with black Leather seats and cloth inserts. At the end of Goeske’s active duty, he had the car imported to the U.S. and continued with his drag-racing exploits. A speed addict, he grew weary of the escalating costs of professional drag racing and started to run jet-powered funny cars. Goeske was forced to retire from racing after he crashed at 275 MPH at the Spokane drag strip. “Fearless Fred” had to be one of the most interesting characters to ever pilot a 912, and his ride remains a remarkable car today.
S195 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster 1E10675 $180,000.00 $195,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Black leather. This restored, matching-numbers 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster presents a wonderful opportunity to enjoy open-air motoring in one of the greatest sports cars ever made. Jaguar caused a sensation when the company introduced its revolutionary XK120 at the 1948 London Motor Show, but it was nothing compared to the worldwide reaction to the E-Type’s introduction at the 1961 Geneva Auto Show. News of this extraordinarily graceful machine quickly spread, drawing enthusiasts from around the world in a buying frenzy seldom seen before. The E-Type’s elaborate coachwork hid a beautifully balanced driving machine patterned closely after the all-conquering D-Type racer, utilizing a fully stressed all-steel monocoque chassis with front and rear subframes. Its direct forebear, however, was a special lightweight racer that competed in the 1960 Le Mans 24 Hours and featured a fuel injected engine and an all-wheel coil-spring independent suspension, a system so well-conceived that Jaguar kept it in production for more than 30 years. In 1964, Jaguar replaced the 3.8L inline-6 that powered the first production E-Types with a 4.2L/265 HP version incorporating three SU side-draft carburetors and driving through an improved 4-speed all-synchromesh manual transmission. A balanced and refined performer with solid handling and a lovely engine note at any speed, the Series I remains one of the most collectible of the E-Type Jaguars, with such desirable features as covered headlights, chromed wire wheels and a well-designed cockpit with racing-inspired touches like a lightweight wood-rimmed steering wheel, full instrumentation, well-bolstered bucket seats, toggle switchgear and an available British Leyland AM/FM stereo. Presenting in beautiful red over a black top and interior, this Series I comes from a collector who stored, operated and maintained it with great care. With a recent mechanical sorting by Classic Showcase in Oceanside, California, that included fuel and hydraulic systems, this very sharp 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster is poised and ready to enjoy. via RM Hershey ’13 $115k.
S200 1956 Ford Thunderbird P6FH157009 $75,000.00 $100,000.00 N/R $93,500 €80,750 Mid Coral and White over White and Black. In 1956, Ford’s second-year Thunderbird was already moving from novelty to American classic, as the new season saw the debut of the porthole side windows, continental-style rear spare and improved interior ventilation via air scoops inside the front fenders. This beautiful motorcar, the result of a recent refreshing by Carriage House Restorations of New Lenox, Illinois, features the optional 312/225 HP “Thunderbird Special” Y-block V-8, also added as a fresh option that year. Finished in red with a polished air cleaner and Thunderbird valve covers, this was the top performance Ford engine available that year. It is backed by the Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission. Of course, what catches one’s attention immediately is the bright Coral paint with the corresponding round-window-option white top, fender skirts, hood scoop and the special chrome trim that helped identify this model. In 1956, the exhaust outlets were moved to the ends of the rear bumper due to the body-color continental design, with the front bumpers featuring the bullet-pointed grille guard. Driving is aided by both Master Guide power steering and Swift Sure power brakes, with the interior showcasing contrasting black and white upholstery, a pushbutton radio, floor shifter and dash-mounted climate adjustment. This car rides on painted steel wheels that feature full-size wheel covers and wide whitewall tires, all in keeping with a picture of 1950s luxury performance. Nonetheless, production was 15,631 units in 1956, the lowest of all three two-seater Thunderbird model years, and these limited-production vehicles retain immense interest to this day. Now looking much as it did when delivered new, this sale will include restoration receipts, restorations photos on an accompanying CD and an extra set of keys. From the beginning, Ford positioned Thunderbird as a practical alternative to smaller sports models, laying the groundwork for innovation as a “personal luxury” design. Coupling its color combination, optional components and scarcity today makes this an excellent opportunity to own a classic first-generation T-Bird.
S201 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa 911 541 0170 $75,000.00 $85,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Grand Prix White over Tan leather. This beautiful car is one of just 174 Porsche 911 Carrera Targas that were built for the U.S. market for the 1975 model year. This fine machine—with 38,000 believed-original miles—underwent a recent restoration that was completed a little over a year ago. Presented in the classic color combination of Grand Prix White with the iconic “Carrera” script in black along both sides, the interior is nicely appointed in a complementary tan color with the correct “tombstone” bucket seats and a factory-optioned Blaupunkt stereo and cassette radio. The Carrera was the top-of-the-line 911 model offered for most of 1975, that is, until the 930 Turbo appeared in very limited quantity at the tail end of the production year. The Carrera visually copied its European counterpart of the same name but came with a detuned engine to comply with the more stringent American emissions standards. An upmarket alternative to the 911S model, the Carrera visually distinguished itself from the 911S with re-sculptured rear fenders with flared arches, wider wheel and tires, and an application of the “Carrera” script just above the horizontal line of the rocker panel, as well as a whale-tail spoiler on the decklid. This Carrera has the optional wheel/tire upgrade finished in the classic anodized black centers with the silver lips. In 1974, all automotive manufacturers were required to meet strict emissions and impact safety standards in the U.S., and this Targa complied with those regulations. Porsche styling was applauded for gracefully integrating the mandated bumpers into the body and maintaining the harmony of the iconic 911 shape. This car is documented with a factory-issued Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. It has long been said that the Targa model combines the all-weather friendliness of a hardtop with the open-air freedom of a convertible, and few cars exhibit those traits better than this example.
S202 2001 Hummer H1 137ZA84341E192621 $130,000.00 $150,000.00 $121,000 €104,499 -7% Black over Tan cloth and vinyl. Driven only 3,691 miles from new, this 2001 AM General Hummer H1 Wagon is one of only 869 examples produced that year. Powered by a General Motors 6.5L Turbo Diesel V-8 engine and 4L80E automatic transmission, this Hummer makes an imposing impression with a deep, reflective, monochromatic black paint scheme, yet it also offers passengers a surprising amount of luxury inside with tan cloth upholstery and matching vinyl surfaces offset by black trim and componentry throughout. Air conditioning, cruise control, a heated windshield, supportive bucket seats for four and a Monsoon stereo system further enhance the comfortable surroundings, reminding easily that this is not the military-issue Humvee but a much more refined cousin tailored for civilian use. Equipped with the tow package, dual fuel tanks with dash-mounted crossover control, Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS) and a front brush guard in matching black, this H1 wagon is the epitome of a go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle. Produced alongside the Humvees at AM General’s facility in Mishawaka, Indiana, the Hummer was produced from 1992 to 2006, with GM renaming the vehicle Hummer H1 to differentiate the military vehicle from the civilian version. Operation Desert Storm in the early 1990s brought the capabilities of the Humvee to the attention of motoring enthusiasts and the general public, who largely demanded a civilian version. AM General obliged by offering various body styles of the Hummer, including a convertible and pickup. The Hummer H1 was nearly as capable as the Humvee. The CTIS allows drivers to inflate or deflate tires depending upon the terrain requirements; H1s could cross water up to 30 inches deep, scale a 60-percent grade and climb over obstacles as high as 22 inches. They have an astonishing approach angle and 16 inches of ground clearance, thanks to all the driveline components being placed in a central tunnel between the right and left sides of the vehicle, which allows the Hummer to roll along without much fear of snagging anything. It is truly an amazing vehicle and holds a special place in the hearts of off-road and military enthusiasts.
S203 1995 Ferrari 348 Spider 99245 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso Corsa over Tan leather. In 1994, Ferrari added a convertible to the GTB coupe and GTS targa models in its 348 lineup, and this 1995 Ferrari 348 Spider is one of 1,090 of its kind produced in the final model year. With just 8,570 original miles on the odometer, the Spider represents the culmination of 348 design and performance evolution. The mid-engine 348 made its debut in 1989 as the last Ferrari developed under the guidance of Enzo Ferrari before his death in 1988. Refinements in 1993 brought improved performance and reliability before the 348 line was succeeded by the F355 in 1995. The 348 marked a departure from its transverse-engined 328 predecessor with a longitudinally mounted V-8 mated to a transverse 5-speed manual gearbox. Quad camshafts, four valves per cylinder, dry-sump oiling and Bosch electronic engine management worked together to channel 320 HP through a self-locking differential and rear wheels. Independent unequal-length wishbone suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes deliver Ferrari-level road control. The 348 could launch from 0-60 MPH in 5.6 seconds, run a low 14-second quarter mile and had a factory-rated top speed of more than 170 MPH. Form meets function in the Pininfarina-designed steel and aluminum body. Aerodynamic side strakes channel cooling air to the side-mounted radiators and oil coolers with signature Testarossa and F40 mid-engine Ferrari style. Lowering the tan canvas soft convertible top reveals a cockpit finished in hand-stitched tan Connolly leather over lush tan carpet with 348-logo machined-aluminum passenger footrest, power windows and locks. A leather-wrapped factory Momo steering wheel, machined-and-drilled aluminum control pedals and gated shifter wait for a new driver to command this 1995 Ferrari 348 Spider over the road or track.
S204 1938 Ford Deluxe Station Wagon 18-431943 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 $71,500 €61,750 -11% Black over Tan vinyl. This 1938 Ford Deluxe Station Wagon retains most of its original wood and enjoys a show-quality coating of lacquer paint that’s been sanded and buffed with straight panels. Powered by a 221 CI flathead V-8 engine with correct heads, intake a downdraft carburetor, the rear wheels get their power via a 3-speed manual transmission. The brakes were upgraded to hydraulic units, making the car easier to drive and control. The dual exterior sideview mirrors, chrome trim rings on painted steel wheels capped with “V-8” hubcaps, the bumper guards, wide whitewall tires, brightwork and vinyl top match the interior well, which is to say, this wagon presents exceedingly well. Having been restored in the 1990s, it still looks fresh, but has the slightest overtone of charming patina, the look of an experienced restoration. A recession was looming in 1937 and set in full bore in 1938, which curtailed all motor vehicle sales, and Ford was not immune, as having just introduced the new style and a new, smaller V-8 engine, money was tight all around. But, continual developments through 1938 ensured people continued to purchase Fords, even the expensive Woody Wagons, even though production was down nonetheless, making these Ford station wagons some of the rarer offerings from the Blue Oval. Another odd marketing idea from Ford was the differentiation between the Standard and Deluxe models with Standards using 1937 exterior components and Deluxes receiving the new, updated front end. It didn’t go over well with the buying public, but it didn’t fail either. Options for the 1938 Deluxe included fender skirts, radio, clock, bumper guards, sideview mirrors, rearview mirrors, a glovebox, dual wipers and fog lights.
S205 2010 Ferrari California Convertible 169950 $100,000.00 $110,000.00 N/R $91,300 €78,850 -9% Nero over Tan and Nero leather. First debuting at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, Ferrari’s modern iteration of the California was designed as a more livable grand tourer that broke a large swath of new ground for the venerable Maranello powerhouse. With elegant styling by Pininfarina and a chassis designed and constructed by Scaglietti, the California was a 2+2 GT convertible with a laundry list of Ferrari firsts: the first Ferrari road car with a front-mounted V-8 engine; the first Ferrari utilizing direct gas injection; the first Ferrari with a dual-clutch, automated, 7-speed transaxle; the first Ferrari with an automated, folding hardtop; the first Ferrari built on modular architecture; and the first Ferrari with a multi-link rear suspension. Unlike many of Ferrari’s contemporary offerings, which were often harsh, racing machines for the road, the California was designed to be a true GT, a luxurious performance car that could be driven comfortably on a day-to-day basis. As “Automobile Magazine” put it, “A grand tourer in the traditional sense of the word, Ferrari’s hardtop convertible is smooth and luxurious. Its sound level and ride are sedate by Ferrari standards, and its cabin elegant and luxurious.” With a direct-injection 4.3L V-8 engine that bolts out 453 HP, the California is capable of 0-60 MPH in less than 4 seconds with a top speed of 192 MPH, but it can quickly be hauled back down to the speed limit by its Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes. Yet, all that performance is cocooned in a sumptuous, leather-trimmed package that features an automatic hardtop that opens in 15 seconds, power and heated Daytona seats, power telescoping steering wheel, two-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors and navigation. The example has traveled 21,851 miles and is finished in Nero Daytona metallic black paint with tan leather interior. Sporting 5-spoke wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tires, this California offers a rare opportunity to own one of the most user-friendly Ferraris ever manufactured.
S206 1964 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser FJ40-22805 $45,000.00 $65,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Avocado over Orange. Since its comprehensive restoration about four years ago, this FJ-40 Land Cruiser has clocked just a mere 50 miles on its odometer. During the restoration process, the venerable 3.9L inline 6-cylinder engine was rebuilt and linked to a 3-speed manual transmission and 4-wheel-drive. Presented in the original shade of Avocado Green paint with a unique Burnt Orange upholstery, the FJ-40 is equipped with the rare soft top and doors, Warn locking hubs, painted steel wheels with chrome hubcaps, and front tow hooks. FJ-40s put the Land Cruiser brand on the map, largely taking the Toyota name with it. Developed for the Korean War efforts, Land Cruisers proved their salt in a variety of terrains and earned their stripes around the world; from deserts to mountains to jungles, there seemed nowhere a Land Cruiser wasn’t right at home. The FJ-40 was one of the most commercially successful Land Cruisers ever built. Marketed to commercial, private and government customers, it was robust and appealed to people looking for an alternative to the American-made Jeep or British-built Land Rover. They were designed with versatility in mind, able to become a snow plow, a farm implement, beach comber, trail blazer or off-road prowler with simple modifications. Civilian examples began appearing in the mid-1950s, called FJ-20 and FJ-30. Wearing more stylized bodywork with a larger interior and riding on a revised chassis providing a more compliant ride, they offered customers a lot for the money. The Land Cruiser is not only Toyota’s longest-running brand, but it was the first Toyota to be built outside of Japan with production beginning in Brazil in 1958. The FJ-40 would debut in 1960 and sustain until 1984 with innumerable benchmarks in between. In the U.S., the FJ-40 was Toyota’s best-selling model by 1965, with production also reaching 50,000 that year, two additional benchmarks in Toyota history. Early examples, such as this one, which is in remarkable condition, are indeed automotive gems.
S207 1940 Packard 160 Convertible Coupe 13792287 $50,000.00 $75,000.00 $44,000 €38,000 -12% Yellow over Tan. Having enjoyed a body-on restoration, this 1940 Packard 160 Super 8 Convertible Coupe has a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission linked to a rebuilt engine. The 160 Packard line supplanted the Packard 120, a model that many credit as having saved Packard from the jaws of the Great Depression, which crushed so many luxury brands that only a handful made it into the 1940s, let alone into the 1950s. Painted in a signature Packard hue of light yellow with a matching interior appointed with red trim and newer leather upholstery, this 160 Super 8 convertible brings a lot to the game with bumper guards, wood-grain dashboard and steering wheel, fender skirts, dual side-mounted spare tires in metal cases, whitewall tires and chrome hubcaps and trim rings. The 160 may have been an entry-level model, but being part of an exclusive luxury brand meant customers still enjoyed one of the plushest automobiles available. Interestingly, moving into the upscale Packard 180 series only meant slightly altered bodywork and an interior of higher-end fabrics and trim pieces. The 160 was a veritable bargain for the day costing a little more than $1,500, and it largely helped to keep Packard afloat in the delicate days after the Depression leading into World War II. The advertising mantra for Packard was long, “Ask the man who owns one,” and in 1940, Packard introduced a new inline 8-cylinder engine they boldly touted as “The engineer’s engine.” It produced 160 HP, more than any other production engine available in 1940, and with Packard’s already sterling reputation for solid engineering, the new 160 engines were exciting indeed. This one, a convertible in softer colors, represents a dreamy time in motoring history, a comfortable known in a time of uncertainty in the world climate.
S208 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback 5R07T252027 $70,000.00 $100,000.00 $99,000 €85,500 Mid Red and White over Grey. Ford Mustang performance began almost as soon the first street models appeared in the spring of 1964, and this 1965 fastback is one that has been built to go. Indeed, from the GT350 Shelby road racers to the Total Performance mystique on street and track, these cars were crowd-pleasers from their World’s Fair introduction. Moreover, first-generation Mustangs maintain a continued attraction even to this day. With power to spare and the changes that will allow enjoyment on the street or show field, this ’65 is in its own category. The exterior reworking benefits from the installation of Maier Racing fastback wide-body conversion pieces, with blended fender flaring, a racing front apron, the larger hood scoop, Shelby-inspired side and roof scoops, and a pleasing overall smoothness to the body configuration. This fresh professional restoration by famed Mustang expert Roman Precechtel exudes the ideals of pony-car ownership, with the biggest highlight being a Ford Racing 392/430 HP Stroker V-8 engine. Topped with a Quick Fuel Technologies 4-barrel carburetor, MSD ignition parts, Ford Racing engine accessories and polished shock-tower bracing and Monte Carlo bar, this mill is a major upgrade from the 289 engine. Today, a 5-speed manual transmission backs it up. The exterior has been painted Viper Red with custom striping and graphics, including large displacement callouts and blacked-out grille treatment. Step inside to find a great-looking “crocodile leather” and suede interior, GT steering wheel, pedal upgrades, digital stereo with a USB port, and a customized floor shifter. This car also has air conditioning. Meanwhile, driving is enhanced by Borgeson power steering, power-boosted disc brakes and Bilstein shocks. The wheels chosen to complete this package feature white 5-spoke centers, anodized hardware and low-profile tires. Showing only test miles on the clock since its rebuilding, this heritage of Mustang’s influence in both racing and street performance comes out solidly through its appearance, with the horsepower to satisfy any enthusiast.
S209 1961 Volkswagen Microbus 652790 $75,000.00 $90,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Mango Green and Sea Gull Grey over Tan. Few people could have imagined the long-term cultural impact of the first-generation Volkswagen Microbus when it made its debut in 1950. Fast forward a decade from its utilitarian beginnings and the extensive Type 2 lineup included a variant to suit every need from the all-business panel delivery, Kombi and pickup to the Deluxe camper and this restored 1961 Volkswagen Microbus. No expense was spared in the nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration that unfolded over the course of two years in adherence to original factory specifications. The Microbus comes with a restoration photo album that documents its return and induction into the pantheon of desirable collectible cars. The famously determined air-cooled powertrain was uprated with a 1600cc dual-port flat-4 engine that has logged less than 100 miles since it was rebuilt. The rear-mounted engine sends its improved performance through a split-case 4-speed transmission and RGB reduction gearbox rear-wheel-drive. The rebuilt steering box, front end and new brakes work with 4-wheel independent suspension and telescopic shocks for authentic Microbus drivability. The body was media blasted, mounted on a custom-built rotisserie, straightened, and finished back into its original Mango Green and Sea Gull Gray color combination using factory-correct single-stage paint by Volkswagen specialists Deutschland Metal & Body in Palmdale, California. Opening the pivot barn doors reveals a faithfully restored interior brought back to 1961 by Lenny Copp of West Coast Classic VW Restoration from the German mohair headliner and roof air-circulating system to new upholstery, door panels and rubber flooring.
S210 1936 Ford Custom Roadster 18-2425810 $85,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Cream over Brown leather. While many Street Rod projects feature bold colors, this impressive 1936 Ford Custom Roadster takes an elegant high road. Known as Venus, this is a vehicle that exudes the character and personality of a movie starlet, gracefully resplendent in white with an accent of Art Deco streamlining. The project began working from a former five-window coupe body with a coach-built roadster conversion. Completed in January 2017 by Brandon Penserini at Altissimo Restoration in Napa, California, the project blends its custom surround to accommodate the distinctive Nash grille, Cadillac hood sides, custom fender skirts and a second gentleman’s trunk, all covered in an ivory-hue Spies Hecker finish, with DeSoto ripple bumpers and Chrysler tail lights completing the body adaptations. Inside one finds the same sophistication with a burled-walnut dashboard featuring pearl dash knobs, instrument insert and Deluxe steering wheel. Upholsterer Chris Plante stitched mahogany-toned leather in wide-spaced rolls and pleats over the stock bench seat, plus there are added custom door and side panels with matching wool carpet covering the floors. Beneath it is a Mustang II-style front suspension, AccuAir air springs, a rack-and-pinion steering layout, disc brakes and a durable Ford 8.8-inch rear end. However, in keeping with its roots, behind the hood covers resides a vintage 8BA flathead Ford engine backed by a more modern Ford C4 automatic transmission equipped with a Lokar floor shifter. The brightwork and chrome plating was done by Sherm’s Custom Chrome and Plating in Sacramento, California, with custom hubcaps and full-coverage whitewall tires completing its appearance. The stunning result has been on the cover page of “Gasoline” magazine, featured in both “Kustoms Illustrated” and “Traditional Rod and Kulture Illustrated,” and awarded Best Paint in the Custom d’Elegance. It contended as a finalist for the Goodguys 2017 Street Rod Headquarters Custom of the Year as well. Meticulous in appearance and classic in execution, “Venus” may indeed generate love and desire at first sight.
S211 2009 Bentley Continental GT SCBCR73W28C054909 $65,000.00 $75,000.00 $66,000 €57,000 Mid Black and Beluga inside and out. With only 23,000 miles on the odometer this two-owner Bentley Continental GT has been driven just enough to let the 6.0L 12-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine remember that it propels a properly fast and nimble GT car. Ordered new with the optional Mulliner Driving Specification, this gleaming black-on-black dealer-serviced car cuts as fine a figure carving up the road as it does standing still. The model on offer is from the first generation of the modern-day Continentals (2003-10) that will forever be hailed as reviving the fortunes of Bentley Motors and, in fact, becoming by far its best-selling model ever. Among luxury sporting cars, Bentleys have a distinct personality, combining true class-leading performance with opulently appointed interiors offering a clubby atmosphere. The low-revving, under-stressed engine yields proverbial stump-pulling torque—a robust 479 lb-ft available from a mere 1,600 RPM all the way to 6,000 RPM—give the GT a unique feel among today’s luxury automotive options. In day-long motoring the engine is as unruffled as the driver in his or her massaging chair. Never known as light cars, the Continental’s weight was slightly reduced for the 2008 model year thanks to optimizing the suspension and cooling-system components, as well as the increased use of aluminum. A 6-speed ZF automatic and all-wheel-drive are features that many Continental GT owners have come to appreciate every time they get behind the wheel. Also enjoyable is the growl from the wider rifled sports exhaust tail pipes that are part of the Mulliner package of trim pieces. The Mulliner specification also provides drilled foot pedals, the quintessential Bentley knurled chrome/leather shifter, 20-inch wheels and diamond-quilted leather. The color and trim options on this particular car skew more towards understated elegance than racetrack terror, but whatever mood you’re in, this Continental GT has the chops to deliver both speed and comfort like few other cars on the road
S212 1999 Ferrari F355 Spider 115938 $95,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Rosso Corsa over Tan leather. It has been said that “all Ferraris should be red.” This stunning 1999 Ferrari F355 Spider plays right into that mindset, as it is finished in bright Rosso Corsa paint with the requisite Scuderia shields. Believed to have traveled a mere 12,050 original miles, this garage-kept California car features a 3.5L V-8 engine with Bosch Motronic fuel injection that is factory rated at 380 HP. All of that power is transmitted to the ground by an F1 gearbox, the first-generation single-clutch automatic paddle-shifted transmission offered by the Italian automaker. The interior is richly appointed with tan leather and looks just as racy today as when new. The F355 was the right answer to what a supercar should be in the 1990s and set the table for the future success of the 360, F430, 458 and 488 mid-engine V-8 Ferraris that followed. The 348 model that preceded the F355 was not all that advanced and paled in comparison to some upstarts such as the Acura NSX. Ferrari sought to redress the balance with the F355. The outcome produced one of the most popular Ferraris ever built, one that could be docile in heavy traffic and yet possessed a much higher performance ceiling than its predecessors. Exotic materials included ultra-lightweight titanium connecting rods, and technology was served by the F1 electrohydraulic paddle-shift transmission that provided lightning-quick shifts and a raucous Formula 1-style sound that was only enhanced in the open-air Spider version—appropriate from a company with more Formula 1 wins than any team in history. The new transmission proved to be wildly popular with Ferrari drivers and only seemed to enhance the overall driving experience. Offered with service records, this is the car that made Ferrari the unquestioned leader of the supercar pack in the 1990s.
S213 1968 Jeep M715 Military 21879 $45,000.00 $55,000.00 $44,000 €38,000 -2% Matte Charcoal and Tan over Cream. When challenges during the 1960s sent procurement personnel looking for a replacement for the military’s aging Dodge truck fleet, they settled on this M715 1.25-ton model based around the civilian Jeep Gladiator. The example offered here harks back to those days. This example was one out of a run of 30,500 units created on the Kaiser-Jeep assembly line in Toledo, Ohio, for a brief time between 1967 and 1969—it has been given a restoration without regard to cost. Created for utility rather than armored or combat use, the M715s were non-combat-role support vehicles used in Vietnam, Korea and other locations the U.S. military maintained a presence, both stateside and overseas. Beneath the hood is the Jeep 231 CI OHC Tornado powerplant, rated at 133 HP and based on an under-square design for optimal torque generation at low RPM levels. This was backed by a 4-speed manual transmission. Being brought back to a military-equipped level of detail, this M715 uses the correct four locking-hub 4-wheel-drive arrangement and a 24-volt electrical system. The cab utilized a removable soft-top cab design and had a front windscreen similar to earlier military Jeeps, which fold forward down over the hood; it uses bucket seats as the battery boxes are also in the cab area. The civilian-design Gladiator fenders were modified to accept the larger extreme-duty tire. This utility application version also features a folding bench in the bed, with Matte Charcoal paint and the soft top in tan. Up front, the custom grille is highlighted with the Jeep name in bold letters. The final touch is tools, bed slating for higher loads and assorted other equipment. Believed to have 11,000 original miles, there are not a lot of these left. With its presence as a piece of military history, this M715 could become a parade, utility or display vehicle, or you can just get in and enjoy it.
S214 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 Fastback 0F02G124854 $45,000.00 $65,000.00 N/R $50,600 €43,700 Mid Medium Lime Metallic over Black. using PPG base and clear coat, this 1970 Boss 302 looks ready for street battles with Z28 Camaros and T/A Challengers. Adding to the original look are the optional 15-inch Magnum 500 wheels shod with white-letter Goodyear Polyglas GT tires. Other factory-optional equipment includes the popular rear-window slats, rear-deck spoiler, functional Shaker hood scoop, power steering and brakes, and 3.91 rear gears in a Traction-Lok differential. The black interior provides a floor console, clock and wood-grain trim. Offered to the public during 1969-70 to homologate its high-revving small-block engine, spoilers and other competition components, the Boss 302 Mustang comes with a legitimate racing pedigree thanks to its 1970 Trans Am championship, as won by car builder Bud Moore with drivers Parnelli Jones and George Follmer. The production street car was powered by the Boss 302 engine, a special 290 HP combination of a heavy-duty 302 CI Windsor short-block and large-port 351 Cleveland cylinder heads. The engine was also equipped with a solid-lifter camshaft, dual-point distributor and Holley 780 CFM 4-barrel carburetor on an aluminum intake manifold. The mandatory drivetrain included a heavy-duty 4-speed manual transmission and Ford’s beefy 9-inch rear end with nodular “N-case” differential housing and 31-spline axles. The SportsRoof-only 1970 Boss package also added front disc brakes, front chin spoiler, Hurst shifter, Competition Suspension with 15-inch wheels and performance tires, staggered rear shocks to dampen wheel hop during hard acceleration, and wild graphics contributed by Ford designer Larry Shinoda—a matte black hood stripe, reflective side stripes running the length of the body, and blacked-out trunk lid and rear panel. Ford produced only 7,014 Boss 302s for 1970, and of those, just 752 were painted in Medium Lime Metallic, just like this example.
S215 2000 Chevrolet Camaro Racecar N/A $55,000.00 $85,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red and White race ocer Race. This 2000 Chevrolet Camaro won the American Grand Touring class in that year’s Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, coming home in 27th place overall. It was a great result for drivers John Finger, Doug Mills, Richard Maugeri, Ron Zitza and Andy McNeil, who was contesting his first Rolex 24. Developed and raced by the Jim Comer Racing team, this is a full-bore racing machine, one fast and durable enough to have successfully completed one of the world’s most grueling motorsports contests. A fully braced steel-tube chassis with a multi-point roll cage forms the foundation beneath the car’s lightweight removable fiberglass body panels, incorporating conventional double-wishbone front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, a live rear axle, Penske adjustable coilover shocks and heavy-duty Alcon 4-wheel disc brakes. The dry-sump V-8 engine is a powerhouse based on a Dart block packed with a forged Lunati stroker crank and JE 13.1:1 forged-aluminum pistons. A Crower roller camshaft and roller rockers exert .640 inches of lift on Manley titanium valves and valve springs, and Trick Flow heads, a cowl induction-fed 4-barrel on an Chevrolet 18-degree race intake manifold, Canton road race oil pan and a Quartermaster 105T flywheel also contribute to the small-block’s enormous output of 640 HP and 525 lb-ft of torque. An Emco 4-speed was supplied by Roush Racing, and a Detroit Locker differential with 3.89:1 gearing complete the bulletproof drivetrain.
