Dave Gooding left Christies and founded his eponymous firm to take over as the official Pebble Beach auction partner and after trial sales at Palm Beach and the Chandler Collection broadened their offerings with a Scottsdale sale in 2009 and finally to three with their first Amelia sale in 2010. From the very beginning the sale was centered around both great pre-war and the best 1950s and 60s Ferrari’s and Porsche’s. The most successful examples of Goodings Amelia sale are always built on offering private collections, 2012s Drendel collection of Porsche Turbo’s boosting results to $36 million with multiple records and the Jerry Seinfeld collection sell off in 2016 combining with a California to hit nearly $59 million. The 2017 sale was highlighted by offering a Jaguar XKSS although the revelation that it had a replacement engine meant it failed to meet even its lowered estimate and the total dropped to $30.5 million. 2018 saw Gooding host a lesser sale with the high sale, a 1966 Ferrari 275GTB fetching just $2.53 mil, and a gross sale total of $35.937 million.

Gooding marquee lots for Amelia in 2019 are a brace of Porsches and a Packard 734. The Porsche 935 was derived from the 911 Carrera RSR Turbo that was raced successfully in 1974 and from its inception in 1976 was just about unbeatable. Various German Porsche experts such as Joest and Kremer among others began to improve and create their own 935s using genuine 911 parts and various official 935 bits and pieces although many were significantly different. The works stopped racing the 935 after 1978 when they had raced the Moby Dick 935/78 in full 800bhp form with absolute dominance but still offered the 935/79 which was essentially based on the works 935/78 for customer use. The 935/79 on offer was delivered to Otis Chandler in Los Angeles for racing although other than a single unsuccessful run at the 1979 LA Times GP, the 935 was never raced. During periods with two collectors, this 935 was very well maintained and the latest owner had it restored at great expense. While this 935 might lack the fabulous race history of some of its brethren, the lack of use has ensured a purity many lack and the condition and potential for use ensure this particular 935 is highly desirable and worth the $2.5 – 3 mil. estimate.
The 2015 Porsche 918 Weissach Spider from the Jan Koum collection is on offer at $1.8 – 2 mil. 1 of just 294 examples built, this 918 had covered less than 40 miles from new. While the Weissach 918 is the one to have and carries a premium over the standard 918, the recent sales patterns have shown $1.5 – 1.6 million and this estimate is high indeed. The third marquee lot is something totally different, one of nine 1930 Packard 734 Speedster Phaetons known to exist. This example was original supplied to McLure Halley, the well known sportscar collector and survived in excellent condition before a Stone Barn restoration in the mid 2000s and an appearance in the 2006 Pebble Beach concours. Only one of the Speedster Phaetons have been sold since 2011 and that was for $2 million so I would expect this example will sell for around the same amount and Gooding estimate it at $1.7 – 2 mil.
Mid century highlights are:
- 1949 Delahaye 135M Guillore Cabriolet – Est. $500 – 600k. Not in the same league as the pre war Delahayes, this is still a fabulous car in lovely condition. Recently restored by Alan Taylor at huge cost. Highly worthwhile of what is a relatively high estimate for the type.
- 1950 Kurtis Sportscar – Est. $275 – 350k. Just 16 examples of the Kurtis roadcar were built and two are on offer at Amelia Island. This example does seem a little on the expensive side but if you like the style, it would be worth the estimate.
- 1955 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America – Est. $1.3 – 1.6 mil. A proper Spider America in beautifully restored condition. A wonderful car and value at the low estimate.
- 1957 AC Ace Bristol – Est. $300 – 350k. A very nice AC Ace that was raced when new at Thompson and Lime Rock. Excellent example that is original, well preserved and ideal for any use. Market correct.
- 1960 Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina Coupe – Est. $350 – 450k. A lovely, original example of the PF Coupe. Will require an expensive restoration but the estimate allows enough room for that to be completed and still come out ahead.
- 1961 OSCA 1600GT – Est. $350 – 500k. 1 of 30 examples extant. A high quality OSCA, unknown history, market correct at the low estimate.
- 1962 Maserati 3500GT Vignale Spider – Est. $550 – 650k. A French Spider, delivered in Bianco. Restored 30 years ago, redone inside and out since and the estimate is appropriate for that condition. Very good buying at the low estimate.
- 1963 Ferrari 250GT Lusso – Est. $1.3 – 1.6 mil. A very original Lusso that has been restored many many years ago and while highly useful, may require another restoration in years to come. As such nothing more than the low bid is value.
- 1965 Ferrari 275GTS – Est. $1.3 – 1.6 mil. A lovely, matching numbers 275GTS in original condition, a decent driver, value at the low estimate.
- 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Touring – Est. $600 – 800k. A lovely Carrera RS, restored by Rainbow Autowerks to a high level many years ago. Value at the low estimate.
- 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight – Est. $1 – 1.2 mil. A proper genuine Lightweight RS, restored by Rennsport in New Orleans a decade ago. Ready for anything, market correct.
- 1974 BMW 2002 Turbo – Est. $120 – 150k. 1 of 615 in this livery. Restored at some point and all complete. Market correct.
- 1974 Ferrari 246GTS – Est. $275 – 350k. A very original, one owner 246GTS. Lovely patina, a great driver and fully documented.
Modern collectible highlights are:
- 1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GTS Clubsport – Est. $250 – 300k. 1 of just 406 built for Group 4 homologation. 1 of 15 in this spec. Mechanically restored. Market correct.
- 1984 Audi Quattro Sport – Est. $450 – 525k. 1 of 200 built for Group B rally homologation. US car from new, well maintained, low mileage example. Market correct.
- 1987 Porsche 962C – Est. $1 – 1.25 mil. Kremer built Leyton House racer, ran Le Mans in ’87 and ’88. Build using a Thompson carbon fibre chassis and top spec. Unused for nearly three decades which might explain the low estimate.
- 1993 Porsche 911/964 Carrera RS 3.8 – Est. $1.2 – 1.5 mil. 1 of just 12 in Speed Yellow. Excellent car, low mileage, excellent example. Market correct.
- 2018 Porsche 911/991 GT2 RS Weissach – Est. $400 – 500k. Offered in essentially new condition with just 120 miles from new. Very high spec. Potential future classic so possibly market priced.
Gooding are offering a set of collectibles with a narrower focus in 2019, its almost like they have personally handpicked them and the selection is all the better for that.

1 1967 S.C.A.F. Ferrari 330P2 childs car 97 Gooding Amelia Island $30,000 $40,000 N/R €26,400 €35,200 Red over Blue. Rarely seen in the US, the five-eighths-scale Ferrari 330 P2 child’s car was authorized by Ferrari and originally developed to be driven by children attending the 24 Hours of Le Mans on a small track on the grounds of Circuit de la Sarthe. Constructed of a lithe fiberglass body over a tubular frame, this diminutive racer is powered by a single-cylinder four-stroke engine, and boasts rack and pinion steering and rear drum brakes. Offered with an instruction manual and an absolutely charming shipping crate, this scale P2 would be an enchanting addition to any Ferrari collection.
2 1949 Fiat 500B Topolino 137801 $30,000 $40,000 N/R €26,400 €35,200 Burgundy over Tan. In 2016, the current owner, a Ferrari expert and restoration specialist, imported this Topolino from Italy. As chassis 137801 had previously been only cosmetically restored, the owner enlisted restoration expert Greg Jones to perform a meticulous overhaul with attention to correct mechanical components, refined interior details, high-quality finishes, and minor updates. In 2017, this 500 B won First in Class at the Renaissance car show in Mississippi. One of the earliest pioneers of small-car design, this charming, beautifully restored Topolino is primed for enjoyable driving and delightful vintage events.
3 1971 Cadillac Sedan de Ville 683491Q216650 $20,000 $30,000 N/R €17,600 €26,400 Cypress Green Metallic over Dark Jade. Produced at Cadillac’s Detroit assembly plant and resplendent in factory specified Cypress Green Metallic paint over Dark Jade upholstery, this Cadillac Sedan DeVille is offered from a major private collection, where it has benefited from limited use. As expected from Cadillac, standard features and options include climate-control air-conditioning, auto-dimming headlamps, cruise control, power-assisted brakes and steering, power-operated door locks and windows, three-speed windshield wipers, and a dash-mounted clock. A modern stereo head unit is currently fitted, but an original General Motors AM/FM radio is included, along with an extra set of keys, owner’s manual, and miscellaneous items. In fine original condition and highly attractive throughout, this 1971 Cadillac Sedan DeVille is quite rare today and will provide an enjoyable experience while easily attracting admirers wherever it appears.
4 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet WP0EB0930KS070599 $175,000 $225,000 N/R €154,000 €198,000 Guards Red over Champagne leather. This Guards Red Turbo Cabriolet was delivered with a full leather Champagne interior and a black power top. Options included a sport steering wheel with elevated hub, Monterey radio, locking differential, and shorter gearshift lever. The Porsche’s original owner cherished this superlative example before selling it to the current owner in 2007, and the 930 retains stunning paint and gorgeous interior, while displaying just under 3,500 miles at the time of cataloguing. The consignor, an ardent Porsche collector, has made ongoing preservation a top priority. In 2017, the car received a new ignition control unit, fuel accumulator, battery, and fresh oil. Accompanying the sale are a jack, tool kit, manual, CARFAX Vehicle History Report, and service records. This celebrated icon of performance history is an exceptional two-owner example that has been cared for by knowledgeable enthusiasts.

6 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC WDBCA45E5MA565963 $80,000 $100,000 N/R €70,400 €88,000 Blackberry Pearl over Cream leather. This beautiful late-production example of Stuttgart’s handsome four-seat coupe is one of very few to be finished in rare Blackberry Pearl Metallic (DB 481U) paint and trimmed in cream beige leather. It was reportedly purchased new by Pamela O’Brien-Kimmet of Florida before being sold in the 2000s to New Jersey resident Kirk Yegarian, who installed an upgraded Becker radio with a CD player. The SEC passed briefly to a third owner in 2017, and now, under its current ownership, it displays less than 8,000 total miles. Accompanied by a tool kit, owner’s manuals, warranty booklet, and service invoices, this beguiling and extremely clean 560 SEC benefits from mild use – less than 300 miles per year, on average – resulting in a pristine and well-maintained example that should appeal to any Mercedes-Benz enthusiast.
7 1982 Ferrari 512BBi 40731 $275,000 $350,000 €242,000 €308,000 Rosso Ferrari over Nero and Grigio Stoffa. Finished in traditional Rosso Ferrari with black rocker panels, this 512 BBi was originally retailed through official French Ferrari dealer Charles Pozzi SA in April 1982. Notably, this example features an interior trimmed in black leather with gray stoffa (cloth) seat and door-panel inserts, as well as a period Pioneer radio and equalizer. Like many European-delivery Boxers, this car was subsequently exported to the US and meticulously preserved in the care of Ferrari collectors. Today, the 512 BBi is beautifully presented in all respects and is accurately detailed down to the correct metric Michelin TRX tires. Showing just over 5,000 miles on the odometer, and accompanied by its original tool kit, Ferrari Classiche Red Book, and invoices for a January 2019 belt service, this attractive Berlinetta Boxer would make a compelling addition to any collection of Italian supercars.
8 1988 BMW M3 WBSAK0305J2195473 $90,000 $120,000 N/R €79,200 €105,600 Henna Red over Black leather. This lovely early example was completed on May 4, 1987, finished in the highly desirable shade of Hennarot (Henna Red), one of the rarest of E30 M3 colors, as it was available only for about the first six months of production. The consignor, Enthusiast Auto Group, one of the country’s foremost BMW experts, acquired the car in 2018 and, after inspection, states that it retains all of its original body panels. As one of less than 200 Hennarot examples believed produced for the North American market, it is even rarer with its black leather interior. The M3 previously spent time in the collection of IndyCar driver Graham Rahal and recently received a comprehensive service by the Enthusiast Auto Group, with meticulous work to both the mechanical and cosmetic elements of the car. Minute items such as hose clamps and fasteners were replaced with genuine BMW parts in order to make this car factory-correct and functional. Offered with a CARFAX Vehicle History Report, books, tools, jack, and detailed receipts, this car represents an outstanding example of BMW’s legendary high-performance E30 M3.
9 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet 111.027.12.002577 $275,000 $350,000 €242,000 €308,000 White over Green leather.

Finished in white (DB 50) and green leather upholstery, the Cabriolet was purchased new by Dr. Austin O’Malley of Massachusetts. The O’Malley family enjoyed it on weekends and at their Cape Cod vacation home until, via a broker, it was acquired by the consignor in 2003, when this Cabriolet had 63,217 miles. Just over 5,000 miles have been added since. According to the consignor, the 280 SE 3.5 retains its original Roser leather interior upholstery and carpeting. A large file of receipts and photographs reveals respectful and dutiful maintenance and sympathetic refurbishment. In 2015, the engine bay and chassis were finely detailed by Jim Cosgrove of OldTimer Restoration in Massachusetts, and in October 2018, the Cabriolet earned AACA National Senior Award honors. Accompanying the sale are the original spare tire, tool kit, convertible-top boot, manuals, and service and maintenance records. Clearly benefiting from the loving care of just two owners from new, this award-winning 280 SE 3.5 Cabriolet embodies the original character of the last hand-built Mercedes-Benz model.
10 1974 Porsche 914 2.0 4742919674 $50,000 $70,000 N/R €44,000 €61,600 Delphi Green Metallic over Black and Tartan. Development of the Porsche 914 was steered by Ferdinand Piëch, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche and the executive responsible for Porsche’s legendary 917. Presented in its originally specified and rare color, this 914 has appeared in books and magazines and garnered prestigious concours awards, including recognition at the highest level in 1995, when it won a coveted Porsche Club of America Manhattan Circle Trophy, the club’s premier concours honor at the time. The same year, the 914 was featured in Porsche Panorama magazine and, in 2006, it was the cover car for Brian Long’s definitive history of the 914. The consignor, a longtime Porsche expert and author who has known the car since the 1990s, believes the 914’s current mileage of just under 13,000 to be original. He states that only minimal, as-needed restoration work has been done, and the car retains many correct and hard-to-find parts. Documentation includes a concours judging sheet as well as maintenance records dating to 1990, including those for mechanical work performed to bring the car out of storage in 2012 after it had been parked since 1995. Today, this 914 is offered with an owner’s manual, Porsche COA, tool kit, spare tire, jack, and its California pink slip and California blue plate. Trophies and ribbons are included, as well as copies of images from the 1995 Manhattan Circle. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a highly awarded and very attractive 914.
11 1974 Ferrari 246GTS 07824 $275,000 $350,000 €242,000 €308,000 Rosso over Nero and Rosso leather. via Precision Motors to Richard Owen, TX, USA (1), never sold. Ferrari retailer in Dallas. Upon seeing it on display, the owner’s wife inquired and secured a 246 Dino brochure, later saying to her husband the words every enthusiast dreams of hearing: “Your birthday present is at the Ferrari dealer.” Initially daunted by the $18,000 price, the couple persevered and purchased the alluring Dino on June 12, 1974, and it has remained in the same ownership since. During the past 45 years, the car has been consistently serviced by Ferrari or Dino specialists and used sparingly – about 1,000 miles per year, on average – by its single dedicated owner. In 1976, the car incurred minor damage to an area above the grille and was fully repainted in its original Ferrari red. Today, the original coachwork and chrome trim proudly remain, displaying years of respectful use. The interior retains its gently faded mouse hair dashboard material, as well as its original steering wheel, instruments, and other features, all of which acquired their patina through time and enjoyment. In 2012, the seats were reupholstered and upgraded to the Daytona style, and are complemented by the original red carpeting. Upon unlocking the latch levers, the engine compartment and trunk appear tidy, just as the front storage area reveals an OEM Michelin XWX spare tire on its Cromodora wheel. Having traveled 46,062 miles as of cataloguing, as documented in numerous maintenance invoices, this remarkable Dino was most recently serviced, in mid-2018, by Norwood Auto Italia in Dallas, with work including carburetor adjustment, a new battery, new fuel pump, column switch repair, and brake flush. Accompanying the car are a multitude of original items, including owner’s manuals in their leather pouch, warranty card (featuring the consignor’s name), owner’s service booklet, chassis service manual abstract, spare parts catalogue, tool roll, jack kit, spare keys and original fob, and a selection of spare parts. In addition, there is a copy of the Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin. Decades of documented mileage and maintenance, as well as desirable options, make this late-production Dino 246 GTS among the best available: suited to enjoy, show, or drive, just as its sole owner has so lovingly done since he first guided it home.
12 1992 Mercedes-Benz 500E WDBEA36E8NB701595 $70,000 $90,000 N/R €61,600 €79,200 Black Pearl over Grey leather. This 500 E presents as an immaculate survivor. The first owner, Ms. Shelton of Pennsylvania, bought it from Mercedes-Benz of Fort Washington on April 27, 1992, and drove it just over 1,200 miles a year on average before selling it at the end of 2017. At the time of cataloguing, it displayed only 31,177 miles. The leather-trimmed interior features climate control, dual air bags, heated leather seats by Recaro, an electric sunroof, and Blaupunkt stereo. Accompanying the sale are maintenance receipts spanning two decades from the original owner, plus manuals, tools, and the original window sticker. Fine examples of the 500 E are among the most envied and exclusive European cars of the era, making this offering an opportunity not to be missed.

Today, the OSCA still wears original cast-magnesium Amadori wheels. Mr. Patti assembled extensive photos of 006’s restoration to serve as a photobase resource for the model.
14 1973 Volkswagen Type 181 Thing 1832346599 $25,000 $35,000 N/R €22,000 €30,800 Pumpkin Orange over Black. An exceptional Thing, this collector-owned example from 1973 is eye-catching in its Pumpkin Orange finish, complemented by a black convertible top as well as a rare, complete set of side curtains for weather protection as required, and bright hubcaps. The purposeful interior compartment is correct and attractive to match; at the rear, the peppy, air-cooled 1.6- liter flat-four engine and surrounding engine bay are nicely detailed and properly equipped. A complete fluid service was performed during late 2017, including the braking system. Ready for enjoyment by a lucky new owner, this 1973 Volkswagen Thing will certainly continue to enchant all who experience it.

Retailed through Maserati of Troy in Michigan, this Alfa Romeo remained with its original owner until 2018, when it was sold to the consignor. Today, the car remains in excellent, show-quality condition, having been driven less than 400 miles from new. In keeping with its overall presentation, this 8C comes with its special-ordered fitted luggage as well as its original window sticker, owner’s manuals, keys, and other factory accessories. With its limited-production status and ultra-low mileage, this 8C Competizione presents as the ultimate expression of modern Italian engineering melded with the nostalgia of Alfa Romeo’s prewar preeminence.
16 1974 BMW 2002 Turbo 4290558 $120,000 $150,000 N/R €105,600 €132,000 Polaris Silver over Black. This beautiful Turbo is one of only 615 Polaris Silver examples produced by BMW. It was formerly owned by German BMW and Alpina racer Dieter Hegels, who raced BMW 2002s, 3.0 CSLs, and various Alpinas, and was the winner of the 1970 German Circuit Master Championship, the predecessor to today’s DTM. After Hegels had owned this 2002 for several years, he and his team of BMW experts performed a comprehensive restoration. The mechanicals were attended to and motor sports graphics and beautiful paint were applied with care. It should be noted that, according to a letter from the restorer, although a correct type engine is fitted, it is not believed to be the original unit for this car. A BMW Classic Vehicle Certificate, owner’s manual, jack, tool kit, and car cover accompany the sale. Offering brilliant handling and astonishing performance, and draped in iconic motor sports livery, this BMW 2002 Turbo presents the next fortunate owner a highly desirable combination of rarity, captivating historic importance, and an attractive restoration.
17 1915 Packard 1-35 Twin Six 7 pass Touring 81407 $100,000 $130,000 N/R €88,000 €114,400 Rusty Metal over leather. Upon the introduction of the Twin Six in 1915, Henry Joy, president of Packard Motor Car Co., proclaimed it to be “the greatest piece of machinery that ever went upon the highways.” Packard’s well-established engineering prowess surely appealed to this vehicle’s first owner, Andrew Kramer, who was an inventor and founder of the Columbian Steel Tank Company of Kansas City. In 1917, the Twin Six was damaged in a fall as it was being hoisted to the second floor of a paint and trim shop. Mr. Kramer had the Packard factory rebuild the car, which was completed using a second-series Twin Six engine. This stately automobile was soon pressed into service escorting VIPs around the Columbian Steel Tank Co. factory grounds, which it did for many years. In 1951, Kansas City was struck by the infamous Black Friday Flood. Water and mud inundated the factory grounds – including the Packard, as shown in photos in the car’s history file. The Twin Six was subsequently cleaned by the Kramer family, and then was sold, circa 1963, to Packard enthusiast and collector Bradley Skinner. Mr. Skinner later installed a correct first-series V-12 engine, which it retains today. No longer in running condition, this remarkable Packard will require refurbishment before use. This Twin Six is a rare unrestored survivor from one of the most celebrated marques in automotive history.
18 1997 Porsche 911/993 Turbo S WP0AC299XVS375852 $425,000 $475,000 €374,000 €418,000 Arctic Silver Metallic over Black and Grey leather. This example presents in attractive Arctic Silver Metallic paint. The interior is trimmed in two-tone black and gray leather, with an exclusive carbon fiber package, comprised of inserts on the dashboard, door panels, emergency brake, and shift-knob. Formerly held in the private collection of a renowned Texas-based Porsche enthusiast, this outstanding 993 Turbo S was acquired by the consignor in late 2018. It has been meticulously maintained throughout its life, as is evident from the superb condition of the paint and interior. This exquisite example is outfitted with an electric sunroof, rear windshield wiper, cruise control, AM/FM/CD player with an eight-speaker sound system, air-conditioning, aluminum doorsills, and yellow brake calipers – many of the trappings one might expect on a luxury tourer. That said, with its magnificent 3.6-liter Type M64/605 engine and six-speed manual transaxle facilitating dynamic acceleration tempered by all-wheel-drive handling on specially finished alloy wheels, the Porsche 993 Turbo S is as suited to the Nürburgring as the city streets of Stuttgart. Serviced less than 300 miles ago and reported by the consignor to be in excellent mechanical condition, this Turbo S wears a 3M clear protection bra and new tires and is accompanied by books, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, receipts, jack, tire inflator, tool kit, and an extra Porsche key. This Porsche 993 represents the ultimate development of the air-cooled Turbo, with performance similar to the 959 supercar. As one of only 176 exported to the US, this example is rare and in pristine condition with less than 11,400 miles on the odometer, and it is the ideal companion for the Porsche lover with a taste for track-induced adrenaline.

20 1954 Alfa Romeo 1900C SS Touring Coupe AR1900*01678* ? ? #VALUE! #VALUE! Società per il Commercio dei Prodotti Alfa Romeo, CH (1), unknown, Carlo Vögele ’90, unknown ’98, Christoph Bode, Germany ’03, Ian Wade, UK ’04, Southwood Car Company ’15, vendor. At the time of Mr. Vögele’s purchase, the SS had been parked for almost 20 years, and he commissioned Carrozzeria Lopane in Milan to conduct an extensive restoration, including a repaint in red (as documented by a specially prepared photo binder).The dealer commissioned a mechanical freshening by B & F Touring Garage in Germany that included a rebuild of the carburetors and attention to the brakes. The vendor entrusted Rizza Classic in Rome with the car to perform a full cosmetic restoration in the original factory paint color. The interior was re-trimmed in a two-tone scheme of tan and cream leather, and a new set of correct wire wheels was fitted. Accompanied by an owner’s manual, jack, and tool kit, this authentically restored Alfa Romeo is documented with former registrations, restoration photos and invoices, copious paperwork in German, and a vehicle history by Southwood. The 1900C has been minimally used since the recent freshening, and retains a correct tipo 1308 engine, the desirable component that fueled numerous podium finishes during the mid-1950s Italian Sports Car Championships. Eligible for major touring events and ideal for concours presentation, this elegant Alfa Romeo would make a distinguished addition to any collection.

Not only are Aces among the most beautiful sports cars of their time, they are especially endearing to drive. A Bristol is an ideal companion on tours such as the California Mille or the Colorado Grand, and in historic racing they are always competitive, sought-after entries. This particular example, with its period-competition pedigree and long-term ownership, is all the more appealing.

Original Owner (1), unknown, Thomas Reichel ’80s, Bob Jordan, IL, USA ’91, David Mohlman, FL ’03, vendor ’03. According to a copy of the Bill of Sale on file, the consignor acquired the M471 Lightweight in May 2003 from noted Porsche collector and dealer David Mohlman. Shortly thereafter, he commissioned RennSport Racing of New Orleans to restore this example to its factory-correct livery and specification. During 2004 and 2005, the Porsche was disassembled down to the bare body shell, the front and rear fenders were returned to their factory-original Carrera RS “narrow” configuration, and the mechanical systems were rebuilt and restored. The potent flat-six engine was rebuilt to its factory-correct 2.7-liter displacement, the gearbox was rebuilt, and proper brakes were installed. Grand Prix White Glasurit paint was used to refinish the exterior of the car, accented by factory-specified Green “Carrera” lettering and matching wheels, which were expertly restored and correctly refinished by noted expert Harvey Weidman. Currently riding on period-correct Pirelli CN36 radial tires, the Carrera RS retains correct bucket seats, lightweight door panels, and Glaverbel lightweight glass. Extensive photographs document the restoration work performed by RennSport Racing and reflect the fanatical attention to detail applied to the Carrera’s systems and components. Only test and sorting miles have been covered since the restoration was completed, followed by fastidious, climate-controlled garage storage and care in the consignor’s collection of incredible Porsches. Not previously publicly exhibited, this exceedingly charismatic 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 M471 Lightweight offers the compelling opportunity to preserve, show, or enjoy this legendary performer.
25 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Roadster 1E11252 $150,000 $200,000 N/R €132,000 €176,000 Pale Primrose and Fawn and Black over Beige leather. In 1965, Charles Lee Becker, president of Handy Andy, a grocery store chain based in San Antonio, Texas, celebrated his success by ordering a new E-Type Roadster. Completed on July 7, his car was finished in Pale Primrose Yellow with beige upholstery, a Fawn soft top, and a black hardtop. Mr. Becker collected his E-Type in Coventry and enjoyed it for five years, driving the car almost 30,000 miles. In November 1970, he sold the Jaguar to Harold Richardson, a fellow San Antonian who served as the E-Type’s faithful custodian for the next 34 years. Mr. Richardson kept a detailed logbook dating from 1970 through 1984, when the E-Type was parked with just 40,737 miles. The car remained in storage until his passing in 2004, whereupon it was sold to the consignor, a collector with a passion for unrestored sports cars. In his care, the Jaguar was returned to running order and has benefited from sparing use. Today, the car possesses the unmistakable characteristics of a well-kept, unrestored E-Type. The chassis, engine, and body numbers match the accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, and the consignor reports that the car retains most of its factory paint finish, as well as its original soft top, Triplex glass, Girling shock absorbers, stickers, and chalk marks. The sale includes the tool kit, jack, and owner’s manual, as well as Mr. Richardson’s logbook. A three-owner, low-mileage Series I E-Type is an incredibly rare find – one worthy of serious consideration.

Retaining its matching-numbers engine (no. 06805, internal no. 116/64) and presented in its attractive factory color scheme, the 275 GTS is in impressive condition throughout and accompanied by a history report by Marcel Massini.

Today, the car remains in pristine, near-showroom condition in all respects. As offered, this outstanding 1983 Porsche 911 SC includes the window sticker, booklets in their factory pouch, service receipts from new, an extra key, a tool roll, an air compressor, a spare wheel and tire, roadside jack, and gloves. Showing less than 8,350 miles at the time of cataloguing, this time capsule 911 SC certainly is one of the finest available and should be an exciting find for discerning Porsche collectors.

This Kurtis Sports Car is the last of the 16 built by Frank Kurtis in California and is believed to be the only one in existence with the original brass firewall Kurtis VIN plate. It was purchased new by IndyCar team owner Jack Hinkle, who loaned the Kurtis to Hollywood for the movie Johnny Dark, with Tony Curtis. In 1995, Steve Gilkey became this car’s fourth owner, and he commissioned Arlen Kurtis, Frank’s son, to perform an extensive, concours-standard restoration. The work included stripping the body to bare aluminum and refinishing it; powder-coating the frame and suspension; and re-chroming the bumpers. The consignor acquired the car in 2017 from Mr. Gilkey and offers it with restoration records and a copy of Automobile Quarterly signed by Arlen Kurtis. Highly prized for its heritage and provenance, this Kurtis Sports Car offers a unique snapshot of automotive history.

A head-turning addition to any Porsche collection, this exceptional Carrera Speedster merits your close scrutiny.
30 1962 Maserati 3500GT Vignale Spider AM101*1449 $550,000 $650,000 N/R €484,000 €572,000 Bianco Le Touquet over Nero leather. Completed in mid-December 1962, the Spider was upholstered with black Connolly leather and painted in Bianco Le Touquet, a shade of white sharing a name with a coastal resort town in Northern France. This car is believed to be one of eight examples finished in the striking color scheme. Early ownership specifics of this Maserati are currently unknown but, in 1985, it was acquired by a marque specialist firm in Auburn, Washington, Maserati Information Exchange. Under MIE’s purview, chassis 1449 was not initially slated for restoration, and the original engine was utilized in a different car. In 1988, however, the model’s escalating popularity prompted MIE to complete a full restoration. A freshly rebuilt, carbureted 3500 GT engine (no. AM101.103) was installed; proper trim and body pieces were fitted as needed; and the coachwork was repainted in Rosso, as depicted in an accompanying 1997 poster of the car. When the restoration was completed in early 1989, the Maserati reportedly displayed approximately 37,500 km. That March, the Spider was sold to Japanese collector Hiroaki Fukushima and, upon importation, it was put on static display for the next 28 years. Under the consignor’s stewardship, the 3500 GT has been freshened with mechanical service as needed, and a high-quality refinish in the original color scheme of Bianco Le Touquet over black leather. Further, new wire wheels have been mounted, and the brightwork has been refinished. Believed to have accrued just over 500 km over the past 30 years, and showing just over 38,000 km when catalogued, this elegant and sporting 3500 GT Spider presents beautifully throughout. Its lithe open coachwork makes it an ideal choice for spirited driving events as well as presentation at local concours d’elegance.
31 1972 Porsche 911 2.4S 911 230 0686 $250,000 $300,000 €220,000 €264,000 Silver Metallic over Black leatherette. Kermit Fox Jr., TX, USA (1), unknown, Michael Jansen ’89, David Mohlman, CA ’00, Lee Wilson ’02, Scott Seeman, WA ’08, vendor. According to its Certificate of Authenticity, this 1972 911 2.4 S left Porsche’s factory finished in Silver Metallic paint over a black leatherette interior. A US-specification vehicle, optional equipment included a limited-slip differential, stabilizer bars, KONI shocks, tinted glass, and antenna. One of only 1,750 high-performance S coupes built for 1972, this 911 S was purchased new in Texas, where it resided with its first two enthusiast owners and was upgraded to 2.7-liter RS engine specification early in its life using its original, matching-numbers case. Acquired by noted Porsche collector David Mohlman in September 2000, this car was stripped to bare metal and repainted in its original hue. Additionally, desirable factory sport seats trimmed in black leather and wider 7″ x 15″ Fuchs wheels were sourced and installed. After two additional interim custodians, this 911 S passed into current collector ownership via well-known Porsche racer and specialist Dirk Layer. In 2015, Rare Drive Inc., the award-winning restoration firm in New Hampshire, was entrusted to perform extensive refurbishment work. During the yearlong process, a concours-standard bare-metal repaint was done in original Silver Metallic and the original transmission was rebuilt, while other mechanical, braking, and suspension components were restored or replaced where needed. Supplied with books, tools, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and an extensive file of documentation dating to the early 1980s, this well-loved and well-maintained 911 S in attractive colors with RS engine upgrades presents in excellent condition throughout. Combining classic looks with superb performance, this example deserves serious consideration by any Porsche enthusiast or collector.

This Ferrari 575 Superamerica, completed in November 2005, was sold new to Jerry Conrad by Ferrari & Maserati of Orange County, California. In addition to its signature dual-purpose roof, this Superamerica was further equipped with the F1 paddle-shifted six-speed automatic transmission, Scuderia shields at each front fender, black Daytona-style seats with red accents, and the highly desirable Handling GTC package. This package included 19″ alloy BBS wheels with performance tires, composite ceramic Brembo brakes, red-painted brake calipers, improved engine intake tracts, a free-flow exhaust, and a sport-tuned suspension. The consignor acquired the 575 in 2016 and has had it comprehensively maintained and professionally serviced in his private collection. Service records dating to 2012 remain with the car, showing that the Ferrari received a 15,000-mile major service in January 2016 at 8,828 miles, including the replacement of the timing belts. Just over 245 miles have been traveled since this service work, with 9,073 miles indicated at time of cataloguing. The 575 Superamerica is accompanied by books in their factory leather folio, plus an emergency top cover (with shipping labels and storage bag included), tools in their leather case, an air compressor, and a spare key. A stylistic and technical tour de force on all levels, the 575 Superamerica stands as a true convertible supercar that is nonetheless eminently capable of daily use and enjoyment as desired.

Refinished in a rich dark green, highlighted by tan leather upholstery and equipped with period Woodlite headlamps, the Packard made its post-restoration debut at the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®, where it captured First in Class C-1, American Classic Open 1925–1931. Since its win at Pebble Beach, the Speedster has earned several other prestigious trophies, including the Breitling Award for Timeless Beauty at the 2007 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and First in Class at the 2009 Kirkland Concours d’Elegance. Maintained in the consignor’s private collection since, the Packard remains in exceptional condition and has been regularly exercised to ensure good mechanical operation.
34 1987 Ferrari 328GTS 71899 $90,000 $120,000 N/R €79,200 €105,600 Rosso Corsa over Crema leather. The North American-specification 328 GTS offered here was completed in May 1987 and sold new through Bob Sharp Ferrari of Danbury, Connecticut, on July 11, 1987. Its excellent Rosso Corsa paintwork is in fine condition, and believed by the consignor to be original. The GTS is equipped with air-conditioning, power windows, and audio entertainment.

35 1949 Delahaye 135M Guillore Cabriolet 801221 $500,000 $600,000 €440,000 €528,000 Registered to Parisian agent (1), unknown, Tissage Marignan/Tissus Jersey, France ’55, Robert André Angue ’59, Dealer, Monte Carlo, Monaco ’59, Brooks Stevens, WI, USA ’60, Richard Adatto, WA ’82, Ken Behring, CA ’92, vendor ’14. Registered with the Parisian number 4213 RQ7, this example was likely retained by a sales agent in Paris until being sold in early 1955 to a family with fabric and weaving factories in the city. The family would retain the Delahaye until 1959, when it was sold to a garage owner in the commune of Èze, on the Mediterranean near Nice. From there the Delahaye was sold to a dealer in Monaco in 1959. In turn, the dealer passed it to the legendary automotive designer Brooks Stevens, who acquired it for his private museum collection. It can be seen on the collection list in a brochure for the museum from 1960. Doubtless, Stevens appreciated the design of the car, which offered the spirit most prized in a coachbuilt French car without the excesses found in many. Richard Adatto, a noted French custom car historian, purchased this 135M from Stevens in the early 1980s and performed a restoration, after which the car was displayed at the 1984 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®, winning First in Class. The 135M also earned a CCCA Senior designation in 1985, and that same year the French car historian ran the Delahaye in the Rally Monte Carlo Classique, a tribute to the prewar exploits of the model. Mr. Adatto sold this Delahaye in the early 1990s to the distinguished collection of Ken Behring in California. The current owner purchased the Delahaye from Behring’s collection in January 2014. With its restoration still presenting very well, the car won First in Class at the 2017 Arizona Concours d’Elegance. Later that year it participated in the Going to the Sun Rally, based in Montana. A photo-documented comprehensive new restoration was begun in 2017 by respected expert Alan Taylor of Escondido, California. Taylor’s team spent more than 2,500 hours bringing back to the Delahaye some important details that had been lost in the previous work, most notably its distinctive side belt molding, which re-established its original paint division line. New interior leather and lucite controls, fitted luggage, a new soft top, gleaming underhood finishes, and restoration of the body panels brought a new level of presentation to the car. Invited to the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®, the Delahaye was very well received. This Delahaye, among the finest of its kind, stands poised to be shown at concours or to provide its next owner with a comfortable, fast, capable entry into almost any international event, from the Rally Monte Carlo Classique to the Colorado Grand.

According to a recent CARFAX Vehicle History Report, this stunning example’s first owner, an Ontario, Canada, resident, purchased the Turbo on March 30, 1994. It was then sold under Porsche’s pre-owned program and delivered to the next owner in April 1996. In March 2002, according to the CARFAX, it had accumulated 34,216 km (21,260 miles) and, by February 2004, the Turbo was located in British Columbia, remaining there until 2012, when the consignor acquired it. After its import to the US, the Turbo received the care of an authorized Porsche dealer, where the original metric speedometer/odometer was exchanged for one appropriately calibrated in US units at 22,848 miles (36,841 km). Only an additional 306 miles have been traveled for a total of just 23,154 at the time of cataloguing. Finished in its gorgeous all-black livery, this Porsche 964 Turbo 3.6 is further equipped with desirable features and options including air-conditioning, a Porsche digital CD stereo unit, power-adjustable heated front seats, power window lifts, sunroof, rectangular fog lamps, Turbo S front spoiler lip, and very rare engine-cooling side inlets. Included are service receipts and books/ manuals, plus an air compressor, tool roll, and spare wheel/tire. As offered, this Porsche legend stands ready to excite the senses with its visceral driving experience and aggressive good looks.
37 1970 Citroen DS21 Decapotable 00FA0662 $300,000 $400,000 €264,000 €352,000 Red over Tan leather. Chassis 00FA0662, a rare fuel-injected model, was shipped by Citroën to Chapron on October 14, 1969. The chassis was given Chapron cabriolet d’usine order number 9346 and was finished in Swan White with red leather. Delivery to Citroën took place on November 25. As the car was to be exported to Canada, a heating system capable of withstanding severe frost was installed. This DS21 was purchased new at Carrier Motors in Montreal in 1971. The first owner used it regularly before putting it in storage for a number of years. In 1988, Arnold Korne of the province of Ontario bought chassis 00FA0662 from its original owner. Mr. Korne recommissioned the Citroën and performed a partial restoration. In 2011, he embarked on a six-year rotisserie restoration to original specifications. Original Citroën factory parts were used, and great pains were taken to achieve authenticity in the smallest details. The livery was changed to Metallic Red offset by tasteful tan leather, and the top was replaced. The mechanicals were refurbished, and the DS21 has been driven sparingly since completion of the work. The specification and high-quality restoration of this iconic model provide a rare combination. The offering of this Citroën DS21 presents a seldom seen opportunity to add a seminal French icon to any collection.
38 1995 Porsche 968 WP0AA296XSS820310 $40,000 $60,000 N/R €35,200 €52,800 Polar Silver Metallic over Grey leather. This 1995 Porsche 968 was supplied new to Bob Carlson, whose 24-year tenure at Porsche included overseeing all public relations for the company during a golden era in motor sports. The 968 was finished in Polar Silver Metallic over a gray leather interior, and came equipped with a sunroof and Tiptronic automatic transmission that offered the driver the ability to shift the gears manually. Purchased by The Brumos Collection in 2006, this car has traveled less than 15,000 miles from new and impresses with original finishes throughout. In preparation for the sale, a service including timing belt replacement was performed by Porsche Jacksonville in January 2019. The Porsche also recently received new tires and an alignment. Offering sprite performance and handling, this 968 comes with its manuals, tools, original window sticker, spare, jack, and documentation. One of just 259 built for the 1995 model year and among the last five examples produced for the US, this well-presented, low-mileage 968 deserves your serious consideration.
39 1960 Ferrari 250GT Pininfarina Coupe 2081GT $350,000 $450,000 €308,000 €396,000 Blu Sera over Ivorio leather. Sergio Radici, Italy (1), unknown, Richard Poppe, WA ’65, William Takas, NY ’84, John Bungay, CA ’87, Stephen Barney, NC ’90, Paul Gilpatrick, CO ’94, vendor ’03. As indicated by several original purchase documents, including a dealer note from M.G. Crepaldi in Milan, a SEFAC purchase contract, a factory delivery note, and a provisional contract signed by Enzo Ferrari, this 250 GT was delivered new in September 1960 to owner Sergio Radici of Bergamo, Italy. Exported to the US by the mid-1960s, the Ferrari reportedly was acquired in 1965 by Richard Poppe of Seattle, and he retained possession for nearly 20 years before selling the coupe in 1984 to William Takas of New York City. After passing to John Bungay of Sacramento, in 1987, the 250 GT was purchased by the respected dealer Stephen Barney of Summerfield, North Carolina, in 1990, and then sold four years later to Paul Gilpatrick of Denver, an active Ferrari collector who later became an FCA president. Acquired from Mr. Gilpatrick by the consignor in 2003, this unrestored 250 GT retains its original matching-numbers engine and original white upholstery, offering a striking visual contrast with the dark blue exterior finish. It should be noted that the passenger-side rocker panel has recently been partially repaired after damage was sustained during an autocross outing. The consignor went to great lengths to source the car’s original sales paperwork, and it is noteworthy that he acquired a document signed by Enzo Ferrari. Being the last example produced, and offering such a desirable original color scheme, this 250 GT is an ideal candidate for a comprehensive concours-quality restoration. It is quite literally the ultimate Pinin Farina Coupe, and can be enjoyed in its current unrestored condition or renewed to a potentially showstopping state.
40 1955 Mercedes-Benz 220 Cabriolet A 184.108.40.20600031 $140,000 $180,000 N/R €123,200 €158,400 White Grey over Dark Blue leather. The 220 Cabriolet A offered here reportedly was purchased new from Mercedes-Benz of Hollywood, California, and was used as a wedding gift to a young couple from the bride’s parents. Offered with a set of fitted luggage, the Cabriolet was built in the strikingly elegant color combination of white gray with a Dark Blue leather interior. As the freeways of Los Angeles grew ever busier in the 1960s, the 220 was parked for about two decades before being sold to a dentist in the San Diego area. After 22 years in his care, it passed to its third owner in 2008 and was recently acquired by the consignor in largely original condition, a testament to its life in temperate Southern California. With its interior remaining largely original, this desirable example displayed just under 80,000 miles at the time of cataloguing. Rare, coveted, and expensive when new, the Cabriolet A models from late in W187 Series production are prized by collectors today, and this black-plate California car stands ready to impress as a preservation-class show entry or faithful weekend driver.

According to factory records, this Carrera RS was completed on May 15, 1992, specified for Italian delivery and prepared in lightweight trim – without optional air-conditioning or power windows. Most notably, this RS was finished in Blossom Yellow (Bluetengelb), a sensational paint-to-sample color shared with the famous RUF CTR2 Yellowbird. Once completed, the Carrera RS was delivered to its first owner, Roberto Zorzi of Padova, Italy. An unusually meticulous owner, Mr. Zorzi drove the Porsche on rare occasions, maintained it in superb condition, and always stored the car in a special way – under a car cover with foam placed between the body and opening panels to facilitate air circulation. Similarly, the doors were not completely closed (so as not to compress the rubber gaskets) and paper tissues were placed in the intake and exhaust pipe to protect the engine from humidity. He even had two stickers made for the car, to remind passengers to close the doors carefully and avoid contact with the doorsills. The RS remained in Mr. Zorzi’s fanatical care for over two decades, during which time various parties approached him with offers to purchase the car. Among the car’s many suitors was a German Porsche specialist. After making approaches over a three-year period, he was finally able to reach a deal for the RS on behalf of a client. When Jan Koum was looking for an exceptional 964 RS in a special color, he learned of this unique Blossom Yellow example and purchased it from the second owner. The Porsche has been a fixture in Mr. Koum’s collection since and remains in outstanding condition throughout, showing less than 25,000 km (15,530 miles) at the time of cataloguing. Consistent with its well-preserved condition, the car is offered with its tool roll, roadside accessories, and leather folio containing the Italian-language owner’s manual, warranty book, rare RS supplement, and service directory. Also included is a history file containing Italian registration records, a copy of the factory build sheet, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and other relevant documentation. A pristine, low-mileage specimen with a documented three-owner provenance, this magnificent Blossom Yellow RS is an exceptionally rare and desirable Porsche.

One of 720 Porsche 911 2.0 L coupes built in Zuffenhausen for the non-US market in 1968, this car was delivered to Auto Hamer Porsche of Montreal on May 7, and was soon after transported to Charles Elliott Trudeau, a 46-year-old Harvard-trained architect and younger brother of Pierre Trudeau, then the Canadian prime minister. This 911 L wore a rare color combination: Burgundy Red over brown leatherette with corduroy inserts. The rear deck lid featured a Porsche badge, added by Charles Trudeau early in his ownership. Mr. Trudeau also opted for a Sportomatic, the state-of-the-art, clutch-free transmission developed by Porsche in 1967. With vented chrome wheels and the same front brake calipers as a top-of-the-line 911 S, Mr. Trudeau’s 911 L was ideally suited for Saint-Sauveur, Quebec, the scenic village where the architect lived until 1994.

They kept the Porsche garaged in Saint-Sauveur until 2015, when it was acquired by the current consignors. A three-year restoration followed, with Montreal-based experts Richard and Nick Grenon devoting 3,000 hours to the process. Factory-trained technician Arnold Faas rebuilt the flat-six engine. Restoration photographs, the original maintenance record book, and a Certificate of Authenticity are included. Offering classic short-wheelbase design and a distinguished Canadian pedigree, this Porsche 911 L represents a rare opportunity.

The sedan was eventually acquired by a collector on the East Coast, who had it regularly inspected and serviced; it registered only 22,000 miles by 2003. After a spell in Germany, it entered its current ownership in 2014, and although it has received new paint and minor selective interior work, this superb 6.3 remains unrestored and exceptionally well preserved.

58 1979 Porsche 935 930 990 0027 $2,550,000 $3,000,000 €2,244,000 €2,640,000 Sunoco Blue over Race. 1 of 17 customer ’79 935s. via Volkswagen of America to Otis Chandler, CA, USA (1), Los Angeles Times GP ’79 #10 Chandler/ Thomas DNF, Dennis Aase ’93 (2), David and Karen Hall, OR ’94 (3), vendor ’96 (4). As noted on the original invoice, dated March 15, 1979, the new 935 cost a staggering $134,963.10, including shipping expenditures such as air freight, adjustable stabilizer, and air jacks. As soon as the 935 arrived in California, it was sent to Riverside Raceway for a test session with Chandler and John Thomas, a close friend and fellow racer. During this outing, Gene Babow of the PCA took photos of the new car and interviewed the crew for an article titled “A Close Look at the 935/79,” published in the May 1979 issue of Porsche Panorama. In the article, Thomas reported that Chandler’s new Porsche “handles better than the 1978 935. There is no understeer; the front track has been increased 1 1/2″. It’s far better than I can handle it.” He was also impressed by the car’s outstanding brakes, stating: “On the back straightaway at Riverside, you go past the #3 marker, past the #2 marker, hold your breath and then brake. The car just slows down, now.” On April 22, 1979, the 935 took part in its first and only competition outing – the inaugural Los Angeles Times Grand Prix of Endurance, also known as the 6 Hours of Riverside. For this race, which counted toward the IMSA Winston GT Championship and FIA World Challenge for Endurance Drivers, a variety of 935s were entered in the GTX class by the top American teams: Brumos, Dick Barbour, Interscope, JLP, Swap Shop, and Whittington Brothers. Chandler entered the 935 under his own name and shared driving duties with Thomas. Wearing race no. 10, and sporting San Miguel Beer sponsorship, the blue 935 got off to a strong start and ran as high as 3rd Place before the engine let go, forcing an early retirement. After the Los Angeles Times Grand Prix, Chandler sent his 935 to the famed ANDIAL workshop in Costa Mesa, California, where a new three-liter, twin-turbo engine was built for the car. This was a common practice at the time, as the twin-turbo configuration was more reliable, improved the torque curve, and was better suited to most circuits. Once this work was carried out, the 935 returned to Chandler, who would occasionally take it out for demonstration runs at POC and PCA events during the 1980s. In 1990, Chandler once again sent the 935 to ANDIAL for servicing. In a letter to Dieter Inzenhofer, one of the firm’s founding members, Chandler confirmed his limited use of the car: “It’s been several years since I have driven it hard at Riverside, but it has very few miles on it since you installed the engine 11 years ago after the IMSA race.” The 935 remained in Chandler’s collection until November 1993, when it was sold to well-known racer and Porsche specialist Dennis Aase of Anaheim, California. Aase kept the car for a brief period, selling it the following year to David and Karen Hall of Portland, Oregon. The current caretaker, a longtime Porsche enthusiast and vintage racer, purchased the 935 from the Halls in December 1996, and it has been a centerpiece of his collection since. Early on in the consignor’s ownership, the Porsche was campaigned in two HSR vintage races, the more notable being the 935 Challenge at Daytona in 2000, when David Murry drove the car to victory. Following these events, the 935 underwent a sympathetic restoration, with a great effort made to preserve original details wherever possible. Although the Porsche has not been actively raced since this work was completed, the consignor reports that the car has been regularly run and maintained without regard to expense. Today, chassis 990 0027 is beautifully presented in all respects and looks magnificent in its distinctive Vintage Racing Blue livery. The Porsche still retains the three-liter engine built by ANDIAL in 1980, which has been fitted with a single KKK turbocharger to give the car a more accurate, as-raced appearance. Included with the sale is an impressive file of documentation that includes the original 1979 invoice from Volkswagen of America Inc. to Otis Chandler, receipts for the work performed at ANDIAL in 1980 and 1990, a copy of the May 1979 issue of Porsche Panorama, as well as correspondence, Bills of Sale, and photographs. Over the past four decades, historians and collectors have come to regard the 935 as one of the all-time great racing Porsches. In various permutations, 935s were competitive for nine seasons, capturing outright victories at Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring, and were crucial to Porsche’s victories each year from 1976 to 1979 in the FIA World Championship for Makes. Today, these cars are highly collectible and eligible for the best historic racing events, including the Le Mans Classic and Rennsport Reunion. Rare, historically significant, and visually impressive, 935s are also increasingly sought after by organizers of leading concours and marque gatherings.

60 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham 58P000610 $180,000 $220,000 €158,400 €193,600 Black and Grey over Beige leather. Eager to reaffirm that it truly represented “The Standard of the World,” Cadillac designed and built a limited number of tremendously expensive, extraordinarily beautiful cars, bestowed with every conceivable luxury item General Motors could conjure. This Eldorado Brougham was completed on October 23, 1957, with body no. 402, one of 304 constructed for the 1958 model year. Delivered to Quebec, this is reportedly one of only two Broughams sold new to Canada. This brushed stainless steel topped flagship was the recipient of a comprehensive, show-quality restoration in the 2000s that included a rebuild of its numerous mechanical systems. The factory air suspension, missing from most Broughams today, remains and operates superbly, as does the factory air-conditioning. Illustrating the attention to detail the current owner has paid to this very special Cadillac, he acquired and fitted a set of correct tires specially made by Coker, matching the unique design used exclusively on the Brougham. Accompanying this car are the rare and valuable factory vanity items, including a comb and mirror, ladies compact and powder puff, lipstick holder, Arpège perfume bottle with atomizer, memo book and pencil, tissue dispenser, and a set of six shot glasses with magnetic bases. This exceptional Eldorado Brougham, among the finest of its kind, was awarded Best of Show in 2010 at the Cadillac & La Salle Club Southern California Meet, and is ideally suited for both driving pleasure and concours exhibition.
61 2005 Ford GT 1FAFP90S85Y401421 $250,000 $300,000 €220,000 €264,000 White and Blue over Black leather. This well-maintained example of Ford’s commemorative supercar benefits from just one owner and a life of careful use, resulting in a pristine car that should strike the fancy of any marque enthusiast. An accompanying Ford Certificate of Origin is dated June 3, 2005, and this car is one of 2,009 examples built that year, accounting for just under half the total GT production.James K. Dobbs III and two friends ordered this Ford GT new from Dobbs Ford in Memphis, Tennessee. Later, sole ownership of the GT was transferred to Dobbs Motorsports. The car has been serviced regularly, and also received new air bags in August 2018 as part of a factory recall. Finished in beautiful white with blue stripes, evocative of Ford’s factory racing colors from the GT40, the GT has been used occasionally for pleasurable jaunts, including participation in the Copperstate 1000. The car is accompanied by owner’s manuals and a dealer brochure, and is documented with the Ford Certificate of Origin, a dealer invoice, and service invoices. Displaying 3,676 miles at the time of cataloguing, this superb Ford GT benefits from low mileage and long-term care by a single-enthusiast owner. Inspired by Le Mans, this supercar would beautifully complement any sporting collection.
62 1964 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale AR381013 $110,000 $130,000 N/R €96,800 €114,400 Rosso over Nero leather. This well-maintained example of the desirable Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint Speciale benefits from consistent care over the past four decades, as well as prior ownership by a highly respected collector. According to a former owner’s notes, chassis 381013 completed factory assembly in May 1964, finished in red paint. One month later, the car was reportedly sold by Rezzaghi Motors in San Francisco to Dunstan Gross. In November 1969, the Giulia was acquired by Peter Sarar of Lompoc, California, and during his ownership a lengthy service file began. The car was sold in 1984 to Guy Webster of nearby Ojai, and according to a note in the file, it won a second-place award at the Santa Barbara Concours d’Elegance. By 1985 the Giulia was purchased by Harry Borde of Placerville, California, who lightly restored it over the following four years. By July 1991, the Sprint Speciale was owned by noted collector Dwight “Dyke” Ridgley of Decatur, Illinois, and he undertook further freshening measures, prompting an invitation for display at the 1993 Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance. A year later, the car was an award winner at the 1994 Alfa Romeo Meet in Peoria. Sold to James K. Dobbs III in April 1999, the Giulia has continued to receive regular attention as needed, including a repaint in 2008. This nicely presented Sprint Speciale is documented with service invoices dating to 1970, offering the next caretaker a solid example ideal for display or driving enjoyment.
63 1984 Audi Quattro Sport WAUZZZ85ZEA905033 $450,000 $525,000 €396,000 €462,000 Red over Black leather. Robert Fergus, FL, USA (1), Corwin Fergus, WA ’98 (2), vendor ’01 (3). This beautifully maintained Sport Quattro was purchased out of Europe by Robert “Bob” Fergus of Columbus, Ohio. Mr. Fergus – a respected pilot and racing privateer who was one of the first and most influential VW-Porsche distributors in the Ohio/Kentucky region – amassed both planes and racing sports cars in Ohio and Florida over several decades, boasting a collection that included a Jaguar C-Type, a Ford GT40, a Ferrari Testa Rossa, and two Bugattis. But the Sport Quattro was clearly one of Mr. Fergus’ favorite cars, as he regularly showed it off during hot laps at a track near his Florida home. James K. Dobbs III admired the Audi there several times, and Mr. Fergus occasionally tried to sell him the car. The Quattro passed to Mr. Fergus’ son in 1998, and Mr. Dobbs acquired the car in July 2001. A substantial maintenance record shows that the Audi benefited from regular mechanical attention from that point forward, including major belt services in 2001 and 2007. In early 2002, the brakes were freshened with new pads and calipers, and the wheels were powder coated. Then, in 2007, the car was prepped for road rally use, and the air conditioner received a new compressor and lines. This Sport Quattro’s story was recounted in a full feature article in the June 2016 issue of Grassroots Motorsports, in which writer Tom Suddard exclaimed, “The acceleration was completely bonkers…Wheelspin was nonexistent…The reward? Truly ludicrous speeds…The Audi dances on its soft, rally-tuned suspension in the most pleasurable of ways. It feels alive, electric.…” Offered with service invoices, this well-maintained Sport Quattro benefits from minimal use by three known caretakers, and displayed 25,329 miles at the time of cataloguing. It is a perfect acquisition for any Group B enthusiast or marque collector, enjoyable as a display-worthy testament to Audi’s motor sports triumphs.
64 1959 Fiat 600 Jolly 608059 $70,000 $90,000 N/R €61,600 €79,200 Light Blue over Beige. This beautifully restored Jolly reportedly was gifted new from the Fiat factory to a Chrysler engineer, named Knecht, who had been working with Fiat in Italy. Mr. Knecht returned to the US and settled on Harsens Island in Michigan, and the Fiat was used minimally around that area. After passing to Mr. Knecht’s brother, a resident of Birmingham, Michigan, the Fiat was purchased in 1975 by the O’Brien family of Boyne City, Michigan. The O’Briens retained possession of the car for nearly 40 years, eventually commissioning a refurbishment by nearby Hafner Restoration Services from 2010 to 2011, as documented by accompanying invoices. James K. Dobbs III acquired the 600 from Mr. O’Brien in August 2012, at which point the odometer displayed 4,068 km. Since then, the Jolly has been optimally maintained, including the mounting of new whitewall tires in 2014, and driven just over 100 km since purchase. Charming with its painted dash and wicker upholstery, this minimally used Fiat would make a fantastic complement to any collection and would be ideal for enthusiasts of coachbuilt Italian cars.
65 1984 Porsche 911 SC/RS WP0ZZZ91ZES100505 $500,000 $700,000 €440,000 €616,000 Rothmans over race. via Porsche AG to David Richards Autosports, UK (1), Private Collector, Japan (2), James K. Dobbs III (3), According to an accompanying letter by marque expert Prescott Kelly, who himself bought four of the surplus DRA 911 SC/RS models after their racing careers were over, this 911 was built by DRA utilizing a 1984 Porsche factory replacement tub, numbered 004 0035. The rigors of rally competition are believed by Kelly to have required the replacement of several SC/RS tubs, including on this car. Kelly also believes that this was likely one of two cars that contributed to the history of “car number 6,” an internal designation denoted by the small “6” decal in the rear window. As it sits, this 911 features all of the special and fascinating build details that are unique to the DRA/Rothmans cars and shows very clear signs of use in rally competition. It is powered by a three-liter SC/RS engine, numbered 63E09022, which corresponds to factory records included with the car as an engine that was used in competition by the Rothmans rally team. Following the end of their racing service in 1987, the DRA/Rothmans 911s were superfluous, and this example was later owned by a Japanese collector. Acquired in March 2003 by James K. Dobbs III, the Porsche had since been associated with a VIN that corresponds to a 1984 RHD Carrera 3.2, a process that may have happened to register the car for road use in Japan or been done in the UK during its racing days. Now titled using this VIN, the 911 has since benefited from an extensive bout of sympathetic restoration measures, as demonstrated by several invoices in the car’s file. In 2003, the car was sent to Pat Williams German Auto in Memphis, Tennessee, where it received thorough mechanical refurbishment including an engine rebuild and attention to the fuel, plumbing, electrical, braking, and suspension systems. Williams also replaced the racing transaxle with a rebuilt standard 915 gearbox, which offered ratios better suited to street use. The original transaxle, along with five spare wheels with slick racing tires, accompany the sale. This powerful 911 SC/RS is a rare and important piece of Porsche motor sports history as a contributor to the manufacturer’s successful rally campaign. The 911 is documented with the letter from Prescott Kelly and maintenance invoices under Mr. Dobbs’ ownership, as well as copies of factory documentation of the rally campaign. This extremely rare and special 911 would make a stunning acquisition for any marque enthusiast.
66 1965 BMW 1800TI/SA Sports Saloon 995197 $125,000 $175,000 N/R €110,000 €154,000 Silver race over Black and Burgundy. Believed to be the 197th example built, chassis 995197 was delivered in June 1965 to Hoffman Motors in New York, as recorded in an accompanying factory heritage certificate. The BMW was reportedly acquired circa 1970 by Tim Wright of Pennsylvania, who parked the car for approximately 20 years. In 1995, Arthur Porter of Colorado Springs, Colorado, acquired the Ti/SA, undertaking a full restoration that included a unique paint livery by automotive artist Dennis Simon, commemorating BMW’s important prewar competition victories. Mr. Porter entered the 1800 in numerous events before selling the car in 2002 to James K. Dobbs III. The car then ran at Road America in 2009, and participated in Brian Redman’s Targa Sixty Six at Palm Beach International Raceway. Significantly, this authentically presented Ti/SA retains many of the special features that were applied to the model, including its seats, “TISA”-badged cylinder head, proper Weber carburetors, and quick-ratio steering box, among others. An alluring opportunity, this car offers marque enthusiasts an important racing BMW ideal for further track use or event display.
67 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Touring 911 360 1510 $600,000 $800,000 €528,000 €704,000 Grand Prix White over Black leather. Unknown, Susan Miller, NJ, USA, David Mohlman, FL ’97, Michael Bruno, NY ’99, J. Tucker Morse, SC ’02, vendor ’11. The name of the first owner is currently unknown, but according to a note from a subsequent owner in the car’s file, chassis 1510 is believed to have been purchased new by a resident of southern Italy who kept the car for close to 10 years. In the early 1980s, the Porsche was imported to the US by Susan Miller, the proprietor of Rainbow Autowerks, a specialty garage in Pleasantville, New Jersey. Ms. Miller set about a comprehensive restoration that, according to her notes, included the rebuild of the Type 911/83 engine with new pistons, liners, and fuel injectors, and an overhaul of the gearbox. An oil cooler from a Turbo model was installed, the hardware was replated, new anodized trim was fitted, leather sport seats were added, and the body was treated to a bare-metal refinish in proper Glasurit paint. The restored 911 was then entered in numerous PCA shows from Baltimore to New York, usually earning a class win. Circa 1997, Ms. Miller sold the Carrera RS to respected Porsche collector David Mohlman of Miami, and he sold the car in late 1999 to Michael Bruno of Rye, New York. Invoices suggest Mr. Bruno continued to carefully attend to the car, including the installation of new carpeting, before selling the 911 in 2002 to J. Tucker Morse of Charleston, who frequently serviced it at Autometrics, a local specialty house. After purchasing the Porsche from Mr. Morse in June 2011, James K. Dobbs III continued the car’s consistent care by addressing many trim elements and commissioning Pat Williams German Auto in Memphis, Tennessee, to rebuild the engine, the shifter, and the fuel-injection system in early 2012. Afterward, the Carrera RS was entered in the 2012 New England 1000 rally. This outstanding example of Porsche’s celebrated homologation special is ideal for entry in PCA driving events and exhibitions. It would make a superlative addition to any sporting collection, inviting the consideration of Stuttgart enthusiasts worldwide.
68 1977 Ferrari 308GTB Vetroresina 19739 $160,000 $180,000 N/R €140,800 €158,400 Argento Auteil over Nero leather. Only 2,897 examples of the 308 GTB were built between 1975 and 1980, and it is believed that a mere 808 were early fiberglass variants. This 308 GTB Vetroresina is finished in the desirable original shade of Argento Auteil, and wears correct Michelin XWX tires on Cromodora five-spoke, 14″ alloy wheels. Displaying 18,925 km (11,759 miles) at the time of cataloguing, the black leather seats display appropriate patina, and the dashboard and interior are in beautiful condition. Currently with its third owner, chassis 19739 presents in a wonderful state of preservation. Offered today with the tool roll and a leather document case containing the owner’s manual, warranty card, and service book, this silver 308 GTB Vetroresina is exceptionally original – and as an early fiberglass example, it is highly sought-after and collectible.
69 1987 Porsche 962C CK6-87 $1,000,000 $1,250,000 €880,000 €1,100,000 Blue Leyton House Race livery over Race. Kremer Porsche, Germany (1), Le Mans 24 Hours ’87 #11 Fouche/ Konrad/ Taylor 4th, Le Mans 24 Hours ’88 #11 Fouche/ Nissen/ Grohs 8th, Tony O’Neill, UK ’98 (2), Henry Pearman, UK ’02 (3), Current Owner ’07 (4), For the 1987 season, Kremer purchased a 962 from Porsche, chassis 962-118, that it would use for sprint races. For the team’s efforts at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, another 962 was built by Kremer itself, utilizing a new Thompsonbuilt aluminum honeycomb tub, which was renowned for its rigidity and lightness as compared to Porsche’s factory tubs, which were made of aluminum sheet. That car, offered here, was built to later “C” specification and would become a dedicated weapon that was optimized for Le Mans and would race there for the team in 1987 and 1988, its only competitive outings. Sponsorship for the car was provided by a Japanese real estate consortium, Leyton House, which itself was a fascinating and iconic brand in motor sport circles. In a not-too-uncommon practice, this car raced with the chassis plate of 962-118 in period, and was later renumbered CK6-87 by Kremer. For the 1987 24 Hours of Le Mans, George Fouché, Franz Konrad, and Wayne Taylor drove this 962C to a 4th Overall finish. In 1988, Fouché, Kris Nissen, and Harald Grohs placed 8th Overall. Both of these respectable finishes at the world’s most difficult sports car endurance race showcase the incredible abilities of the Kremer Racing team and this 962C. Chassis CK6-87 would remain in Kremer Racing’s collection until it was very reluctantly sold to UK-based collector Tony O’Neill. Correspondence in the car’s fascinating history file document the sale, which included a Leyton House Crew fire suit and team jacket, which had been worn by Erwin Kremer, along with an original spare longtail bodywork section that had been used at Le Mans. In 2002, the 962C was sold to Henry Pearman, where it became part of the largest collection of Group C cars in the world. Mr. Pearman sold the 962C to the current owner in 2007, after which the car was mechanically refurbished and run at the 2008 Goodwood Festival of Speed. In static storage since, this 962C carries all the period-correct hallmarks of a machine that was only raced twice and has remained in loving specialist care since new. A buyer should expect to undertake race preparation measures before use. Incredibly original, well-documented, and resplendent in its searing Leyton House livery, this Kremer Porsche 962C evokes the period as well as any in existence. These legendary sports racing machines redefined the racing landscape and conquered all challengers for more than a decade. Such domination is embodied in this amazing example, which promises a rewarding experience whether used for static display or returned Chassis CK6-87 receives attention from to the racetrack.
70 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 R CSX4007R $200,000 $300,000 N/R €176,000 €264,000 Blue and White over Black. As reflected in the registry, this example, numbered CSX4007R, is one of just two – the other being CSX4001R – built to “R” competition specification, and it is accompanied by a copy of the MSO issued by Shelby Automobiles. Sold new in 2004 to Bill Anderson’s HRE Motorcars of Freeport, New York, CSX4007R was completed there for customer David Ciardullo. This Cobra was fitted with an aluminum-head 427 Ford V-8 engine built by NASCAR legend Ernie Elliott that offered an estimated 700 hp and featured rare carbon fiber bodywork. During his ownership, Mr. Ciardullo drove the car on the street and at Virginia International Raceway. In 2016, this example was acquired by the consignor, who has driven it sparingly, had it professionally serviced, and kept it in his private collection. Equipped with the finest components available and melding vintage style with contemporary performance, CSX4007R is a modern American classic benefiting from the unmistakable ingenuity of Carroll Shelby.
71 1955 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America B24S 1170 $1,300,000 $1,600,000 €1,144,000 €1,408,000 Dark Blu over Cognac leather. Unknown, Ken Wyatt, UK ’81, Robert Heisey, FL, USA ’85, Pierre Mellinger, Poland ’14, Current Owner. This beautifully presented mid-production example of Lancia’s timeless Spider benefits from almost two decades of storage, followed by an extensive, bare-metal, rotisserie restoration to show standards that concluded in early 2019. According to its Lancia Certificate of Origin, chassis 1170 completed assembly in late October 1955, equipped with engine no. 1229, which remains in the Spider today. Subsequent research by the consignor reveals that chassis 1170 was the sole example finished in Alacio Verde (Light Green) over a Natural Tan leather interior. Additionally, stampings on the steering box, transaxle, and body shell match the data on the certificate of origin. According to the consignor, this B24S is long rumored to have been ordered new by a US Air Force officer stationed in Rome, which would explain the unique combination of European-specification features (lighting and an open-style glove box) with instruments in English. The car reportedly remained in Italy for several decades before being acquired in 1981 by Ken Wyatt, the personal assistant to the bass player of The Who, John Entwistle. As Mr. Entwistle’s cars were generally registered in Mr. Wyatt’s name, it is possible that this Lancia actually belonged to the famed musician. Refinished in red with black upholstery, the Spider was exported to the UK with the British registration “WYA 8.” In late 1982, the engine was rebuilt by Weylock Automobiles in Surrey, and the Lancia was sold in spring 1985 to Paradise Garage in London. The Aurelia was purchased in July of that year by Robert Heisey, an American seed specialist working in Parma, Italy. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Heisey returned to the US, relocating his family to Florida. The Spider America was driven for a few years in the Sunshine State before the family moved to Gilroy, California, where the car was reportedly domiciled in storage for approximately 25 years. In August 2014, while exhibiting the charming patina of a garage find, the largely original and unaltered Aurelia was sold to Pierre Mellinger of Warsaw, Poland. Mr. Mellinger initially shipped the B24S to the UK before commissioning GPS Classic S.r.L. in Soragna, Italy, to freshen the car as needed for event use. The Spider was then entered in a variety of European tours and exhibitions over the next few years. By early 2018, the Lancia was acquired by the Southern California-based consignor. Under his care, the Spider underwent a substantial, photodocumented restoration by the respected Alan Taylor of Escondido, including a premium refinish of the coachwork in Dark Blue and an interior re-trim in Cognac leather. Upon disassembly, a photographic inventory of the Lancia’s numerous original number stampings was performed, including the rarely seen Pinin Farina logo stampings hidden within the body structure. A photo gallery of these stampings is available for review. Further work included restoration of the engine bay, undercarriage, and hardware to a high level of detail. Mechanical elements were also addressed, ensuring this Spider is as well suited for touring events as concours d’elegance. Offered with its certificate of origin, a rare factory brochure, and hundreds of restoration photos that underscore the full extent of the work, both mechanically and cosmetically, this exquisite B24S benefits from the care of just three dedicated owners over the last 34 years. A true rarity, Spider Americas are eligible for countless motoring events worldwide and ideal for presentation at most any concours d’elegance. A masterpiece of design in both style and engineering, the Spider America may comfortably take its place in the ranks of the greatest sports cars of all time. via Gooding Pebble Beach ’14 $880k.
72 2005 Ferrari 575M 140877 $140,000 $180,000 N/R €123,200 €158,400 Nero over Nero Daytona leather. This Nero Daytona 2005 Ferrari 575M was sold new by Michigan’s Cauley Ferrari and equipped with the rare and desirable Handling GTC package, which included 19″ alloy BBS wheels with performance tires, composite ceramic Brembo brakes, red-painted brake calipers, improved engine intake tracts, and a sport-tuned suspension. Since acquisition by the consignor in early 2014, this example has enjoyed exceptional care and maintenance, including a 36-month/30,000-mile major service that was performed in April 2014 at 10,865 miles, during which, among other details, the timing belts were replaced. At the time of cataloguing the Ferrari showed less than 12,000 miles. It is accompanied by service records and features black upholstery and Ferrari’s F1 gearbox, plus a Becker stereo and six-disc CD changer. Accompanying the sale are manuals in their leather pouch, air compressor, electronic battery charger, and tool kit. Striking in its great livery, and coming from a prestigious collection, this 2005 Ferrari 575M clearly offers immense opportunity.
73 1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GTS Clubsport WP0ZZZ93ZBS710053 $250,000 $300,000 €220,000 €264,000 Guards Red over Black race. To homologate the 924 for Group 4 competition, Porsche produced 406 units of the 924 Carrera GT. The 924 GTS, a more powerful and even rarer variant, was distinguished by a stripped interior, Perspex headlamp covers, a repositioned intercooler, and 930 Turbo brakes. In GTS Clubsport trim, of which just 15 were made, the engine’s output rose to 270 hp and the cars received a thinner-gauge shell, Plexiglas windows, aluminum roll cage, 935 seats, and a fire extinguisher. This particular Clubsport was originally a Porsche press vehicle, according to a 1997 letter on file from Jürgen Barth, who was then Porsche’s customer racing coordinator. This example was then acquired directly from the factory by Porsche privateer racing team owner Bruce Leven, according to the consignor’s conversation with Leven’s mechanic, who also related that an adjustable boost knob from Porsche’s 935 was installed at Leven’s request. The Clubsport was later owned by Alan Friedman, the founder of PCA Club Racing, who campaigned it at Sebring, Watkins Glen, Lime Rock, and Road Atlanta. In current ownership, marque specialist ROCS Motorsports in New Jersey has completed significant mechanical work since 2015, at a cost of over $40,000. The consignor states that today the Clubsport presents in largely original condition, displaying the patina of its racing career. This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire an extremely rare and interesting Porsche, and a model that rarely comes to market.

76 1963 Ferrari 250GT Lusso 5127GT $1,300,000 $1,600,000 €1,144,000 €1,408,000 Rosso over Nero leather. via Crepaldi to unnamed, Italy (1), Unknown, Bill Ziegenbein, MI, USA ’89, Charles Zwolsman, Netherlands ’91, Fritz Kroymans ’01, Tom Price, CA, USA ’10, Private Collection, CT ’10s, vendor. Regarded as an automotive great from the outset, the Lusso has always been a desirable Ferrari. Marque historians have carefully traced the whereabouts of these cars over the past decades; the vast majority of examples are accounted for, generally residing in major collections or long-term ownership. The history of this car, chassis 5127 GT, can be traced to October 1963, when it was completed at the Ferrari factory. According to the research of Ferrari historian Marcel Massini, this Lusso, the 128th example built, was originally finished in the rare and attractive color scheme of Grigio Fumo (Smoke Gray, Italver 18944) with black Connolly leather upholstery. Upon completion, the new Lusso was delivered to M. Gastone Crepaldi S.a.s., the official Ferrari dealer in Milan, and it is believed that 5127 GT remained in Italy for several years before being exported to the US. While little is known of 5127 GT’s earliest provenance, by 1989, the Ferrari had been acquired by Bill Ziegenbein, proprietor of Prestige Motors in Madison Heights, Michigan. The following year, Coys of Kensington sold the Lusso at a London auction and, by 1991, it was being advertised for sale by a Los Angeles-based car dealer. In September 1993, 5127 GT was among a group of classic cars seized by Interpol and the Dutch government from broker Charles Zwolsman. These cars were eventually sold, by order of the Dutch government, at the Domeinen Auction, held in the Netherlands during July 2001. It was there that 5127 GT was purchased by noted Ferrari collector Fritz Kroymans. The Lusso remained in Mr. Kroymans’ ownership for the next decade, during which time it was displayed at the 2009 Amsterdam International Motor Show (AutoRAI). The Lusso once again returned to the US when it was sold to Tom Price of Larkspur, California, and it has since been kept in the care of two East Coast collectors. Today, the car presents in serviceable, driver-quality condition, featuring an older restoration in red paint with black leather upholstery. Significantly, the Ferrari retains its matching-numbers engine (5127) with its corresponding internal number (1644/62E), as well as its original riveted data tag. As presented, this Lusso would be an ideal car for a multitude of Ferrari Club of America gatherings, driving events, and tours. Given its attractive factory-supplied color scheme and Italian-delivery specification, it could also serve as an ideal foundation for a comprehensive show-quality restoration and would look sensational in its original Grigio Fumo. Whatever the future holds for 5127 GT, it will certainly remain among the most iconic and sought-after Ferraris of the 1960s and one of the all-time great European GT cars. For collectors who have always wanted to add a Ferrari 250 GT Lusso to their stable, the appearance of this car at auction represents an exciting opportunity that should not be overlooked.

79 2004 Porsche 911/996 GT3 RS WP0ZZZ99Z4S691474 $275,000 $350,000 €242,000 €308,000 Grand Prix White over Black. This 2004 Porsche 996 GT3 RS is one of 682 examples built. Never offered in the US, this car was delivered new in Japan, where it remained until early 2018, accruing less than 11,000 miles. Finished in Grand Prix White with red graphics and wheels, this RS is equipped with the Clubsport package, which is composed of a half-roll-cage, six-point harnesses for the fixed-back Recaro driver’s seat, a fire extinguisher, and a single-mass flywheel that enabled the engine to spin to redline more freely. Maintained in very original condition and accompanied by books, tools, documentation, and original exhaust components, this GT3 RS Clubsport was made EPA- and DOT-compliant by G&K Automotive in Southern California under current ownership. The GT3 RS is seldom offered for sale in the US, and many believe it produces a more raw and connected driving experience than later models. This example provides the rare chance to purchase one of the most visceral Porsches ever produced.
80 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL WDBBA48D1KA101449 $45,000 $55,000 N/R €39,600 €48,400 White over Dark Blue leather.

81 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 CSX2210 $800,000 $900,000 N/R €704,000 €792,000 Blue over Black. via Joe Brown Ford to John M. Winemiller, KY (1), Jake Winemiller ’70s (2), Harry Campbell, MO ’83 (3), vendor (4). As documented by the Shelby Registry, as well as a copy of the factory invoice, this 289 Cobra, chassis CSX2210, was shipped from AC to Los Angeles aboard the SS Pacific Fortune on November 14, 1963. The Cobra stayed at Shelby American’s facility in Los Angeles, where it may have been used as a factory demonstrator, before being sold to dealer Joe Brown Ford in Louisville, Kentucky, on May 15, 1964. Originally finished in red with a black interior, it was equipped with “Class A” accessories, which included chrome wheels and a radio with antenna. By March 1965, the Cobra had been purchased by Louisville resident John M. Winemiller, who started enjoying the car immediately by competing in local autocrosses. Mr. Winemiller became acquainted with notable Cobra racer Don Roberts, who, according to a subsequent owner’s write-up that accompanies the sale, had purchased a number of surplus XE-specification racing engines from Carroll Shelby and Lew Spencer’s Hi-Performance Motors after the shop’s closing in 1967. These engines featured a special block casting with four-bolt main bearing caps and a windage tray, and were developed by Ford for use in GT40s and endurance-racing sedans. Roberts reportedly rebuilt one of these extremely rare engines for CSX2210 and installed it with a GT40-style intake and Weber carburetors, the setup that remains in the car to this day. The Shelby would go to Mr. Winemiller’s son Jake after his father’s passing in the early 1970s. By 1983, Harry Campbell of Grain Valley, Missouri, had bought the Cobra from Jake Winemiller. In 1985, Mr. Campbell delivered the Shelby to esteemed Cobra restoration expert Bill Murray of Longmont, Colorado. As documented by accompanying receipts and photos, CSX2210 was given a ground-up, no-expensespared restoration to cut-back-door, FIA specification. The original bodywork was repaired as necessary, while FIA fender flares and a hood scoop were fabricated and installed. The suspension was re-bushed, the engine rebuilt, and the finished car painted Dark Blue with traditional white racing stripes. This beautiful work still presents extremely well today, a testament to the care taken at the time by Murray. Mr. Campbell would go on to cherish his Cobra for an additional 33 years before selling it to the consignor. The Cobra has been selectively upgraded over time to fit the intended use and tastes of its fastidious caretakers, the two families who cherished the car for over 50 years. Now, tastefully presented with its desirable FIA-specification bodywork and extremely rare competition-derived engine, this Cobra stands out among its peers with its unique substance and focus. Enthusiasm for the Shelby Cobra continues unabated today and is a testament to the alluring qualities bestowed upon it by Shelby American. Drivers unacquainted with these wonderful cars are often immediately impressed not only by the sheer performance available, but also by their enjoyable overall capabilities. Suitable for use on the road and at track events, this undeniably charismatic 289 Cobra offers an attractive opportunity to own a car that is much more than the sum of its parts, and to experience the American legend firsthand.

This example was purchased new by its first owner, who retained it until 2018, when it was acquired by the consignor. The SEL was originally delivered in a Dark Blue finish over Palomino interior, the same as it wears now. Today, in unrestored, original condition and showing less than 19,000 miles, this car is beautifully preserved. It is accompanied by its pristine factory tool kit, owner’s manuals, and first-aid kit, and the accessories include the various factory hangtags. The period-correct Becker radio is operational, and the spare tire bears its factory markings. The rarity of an automobile over 30 years old having mileage this low as well as being in superb original condition renders this 420 SEL an exceptional opportunity for any serious Mercedes-Benz collector.
83 2004 Porsche Carrera GT WP0CA29894L001182 $650,000 $750,000 €572,000 €660,000 GT Silver over Dark Grey leather. via Auto Palace Porsche to unnamed, PA, USA (1), C.J. Wilson, CA (2), vendor (3). This beautiful Carrera GT was purchased new from Auto Palace Porsche in Pittsburgh. Finished in GT Silver with a Dark Grey leather interior, the Carrera GT’s option list includes the XT (wider) seats, air-conditioning, Bose audio system, and the very desirable matching luggage set. According to an accompanying CARFAX Vehicle History Report, it was held by its original owner and serviced regularly by Auto Palace until 2018, when it was sold to former major league pitcher and noted Porsche collector C.J. Wilson. Under Mr. Wilson’s care, this exotic Carrera GT benefited from a no-expense-spared major service by Porsche Fresno that cost more than $40,000. That work, done in December 2018 at 4,098 miles, included a new set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and a new clutch. The consignor recently purchased the Porsche from Mr. Wilson, and it showed less than 4,400 miles at the time of cataloguing. With its compelling combination of low mileage and well-kept condition, this 2004 Porsche Carrera GT would make a fine choice for anyone who appreciates an important chapter in Porsche’s road car history and wants to experience one of its purest expressions of performance.

Originally retailed by The Collection in Miami, this lovely example was purchased and driven by famed Ferrari collector Lawrence Stroll in the Ferrari Challenge series during 1997 and 1998, including at the historic circuits of Sebring and Lime Rock. After briefly passing to a second Miami-based owner, the Ferrari was purchased circa 2004 by a private collector in New England, who held the car for over 10 years. During his ownership, the Ferrari was stolen but recovered just over four months later, parked in a warehouse not far from where it had gone missing, and in unaltered condition. The current owner acquired the Challenge in 2015, and has since reupholstered the seats, renewed the vinyl appliqués to the original racing livery, mounted street tires, and conducted a major engine-out service. The F355 displayed less than 12,000 miles at the time of cataloguing and retains its original factory Challenge equipment, including the roll cage, rear wing, Speedline magnesium wheels, and OMP carbon fiber seats. This Ferrari F355 Challenge is a rare example, exceptional with its low mileage and charismatic original livery, and ready for enjoyment.

While the bulk of LTDs performed yeoman service, unceremoniously hauling families and their belongings, this wonderfully original 1974 Ford LTD Country Squire Station Wagon is a beautifully preserved, virtual time capsule. Purchased new from Titus-Will Ford Sales of Tacoma, Washington, on August 26, 1974, by Leonard and Vinnie Julson, the LTD remained in their care until it was sold from their estate in 2015 to the consignor, an enthusiastic and astute collector.

Chassis 83828 is one of 1,131 T-2 356 A Speedster examples, production of which began in early 1957. While its Kardex lists scant information, this example was delivered to first owner Charles L. Arnett of Berlin and then sold to Todd D. Ritter of Jacksonville, Florida. Retained by Mr. Ritter for a short time, the Speedster was acquired by fellow Jacksonville resident Wallace Davis in May 1958. Mr. Davis would keep the Speedster until February 1996, when it was acquired by its current enthusiast owner. Under the consignor’s auspices, a restoration of the Speedster commenced in 1997 and was completed the following year. The car was disassembled and found to be largely original with properly date-coded wheels, fuel tank, and gauges. Brightwork was replated or replaced and a new top was fitted. A replacement Type 616/1 engine was sourced and rebuilt with larger 1,720 cc pistons and cylinders, a 1965 356 C camshaft, and 912 crankshaft and rods. The original Zenith 32 NDIX carburetors were retained. Making this car more enjoyable to drive, it produces an estimated 75 bhp instead of the original unit’s 60 bhp. In the current owner’s care for more than two decades, this Speedster has been enjoyed, driven, and exhibited at numerous concours events, including the Porsche 356 Registry’s East Coast Holiday (1999, 2016), 2015 Lake Mirror Classic (Sponsors Award), and 2017 Werks Reunion Amelia Island. Recently repainted and re-trimmed in what are believed to be its original colors – Meissen Blue over red – this iconic 356 A Speedster is poised for spirited touring and further showings.

90 1958 Porsche Diesel Junior 108K K3666 $30,000 $50,000 N/R €26,400 €44,000 Red tractor. The history of this lovely Porsche-Diesel Junior 108K has been researched by a previous owner, a German Porsche collector, and is documented by the accompanying original registration booklet. According to his research, this 108K was delivered new on July 25, 1958, to Dr. Friedrich Bering, an engineer and third-generation owner of a paper factory and surrounding lands in Warburg, Germany. The tractor was used by Dr. Bering until 1964, when it was sold to August Rolf, a farmer in nearby Natingen. Six years later, the Junior 108K was acquired by Mr. Funfsinn, a butcher in Salchendorf, a village near Siegen in the south of Germany. The butcher used and properly maintained the tractor on his cattle farm for 37 years. The 108K was acquired in 2007 by a discriminating German Porsche collector who appreciated its well-preserved condition and fitment of factory options, including the Type 104 hydraulic lift, rare front fenders, and full instrumentation. He decided to restore the 108K, entrusting it to a German tractor expert who stripped the Porsche to its bare frame. The engine was rebuilt, including new gaskets and bearings, and the starter was overhauled. The chassis and body were repainted, and new wiring and tires were installed. In 2018, this outstanding example was acquired by an American Porsche collector and mechanic with an affinity for Porsche tractors, and this Junior 108K now awaits its next caretaker.
