RESULTS

Mecum offered a little less than their usual 550 – 800 lots with just 511 cars crossing the block in 2019 and they would have hoped to exceed 2018s $44 million with cars such as Dana Mecums own 1954 Ferrari 250 Monza on offer. Ultimately as predicted Dana wanted $20 million for his 1954 Ferrari which was almost 50% more than it should have been worth and thus it failed to sell at what was a very strange and quite theatrical bidding war. One must assume that like many of Mecums lots there was chandelier bidding involved with it hitting this rather imaginary dollar figure which was never going to happen. The overall results saw almost 100 less cars on offer and 68 less sold which without the $15 – 20 million from the Ferrari perhaps explains why the result was 40% down at $26.7 million. The nice 1967 Ferrari 275GTB/4 topped the selling stakes at $2.75 million although this was merely mid estimate. Other top sellers were the 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Convertible at $121k (+42% above estimate), 1931 Stutz SV-16 Le Baron Convertible Coupe at $176k (+41%), 1955 Porsche Tempo Mikafa Sport Camper at $187k (+25%), 1951 Jowett Jupiter Convertible at $49k (+24%) and 1993 Porsche 911/964 Carrera RS America at $132k (+10%).

Mid estimate sellers included the 2015 Porsche 918 at $1.43 mil., 1966 Ferrari 275GTS at $1.1 mil. and 1965 Shelby Cobra 289 at $1.045 mil. Cars that sold below their estimates included the 1996 Porsche 911/993 Carrera 4S at $21k (-81%), 1973 Ford Pinto at $6,600 (-74%), 1936 Packard 1402 Limousine at $22k (-71%), 1929 Ford The Emperor at $115k (-62%), 1995 Lola T95-00 Menard at $129k (-57%), 1927 Ford Dick Williams Roadster at $150k (-50%), 1935 Auburn 851SC Boattail Speedster at $742k (-38%), 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 at $412k (-25%), 1938 Mercedes-Benz 170VS Gelandesport Alpine Racer at $330k (-22%) and 2014 Ferrari LaFerrari at $2.64 mil. (-4%).
Apart from the 1954 Ferrari 250 Monza other cars that failed to sell included the 1952 Allard J2 Roadster at a reported high bid of $625k, 1967 Ferrari 330GTC at $400k, 1994 Porsche 911/964 Turbo S at $575k, 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight at just $200k, 1989 Porsche 962 HM-008 at $325k, 2005 Ford GT PB-1 at $570k, 2017 Pagani Huayra Roadster at $2.7 mil, 2015 Porsche 918 Wessaich Spider at $1.2 mil., 1938 Talbot Lago T120 Brandone Roadster at $650k, 1947 Delahaye 135MS Figoni & Falaschi Cabriolet at $2.6 mil., 2017 Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 at $1.6 mil., 1947 Delahaye 135M Guillore Cabriolet at $1.1 mil., all four Porsche 935 DPs at between $275 – 310k, 1963 Shelby Cobra 289 Dragonsnake at $675k and 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 at $550k. Mecum had a relatively poor year with sales down and the general lack of interest harming the sales reputation although a better selection of marquee lots to be offered at sensible estimates would do wonders for the sale going forward. Whatever happens, Mecum have much more work to do.

T117 2008 Porsche 911/997 Carrera GT3 RS WP0AC29938S792296 Not given Not given Not sold Not sold N/A One of just 413 imported into the United States, this 2008 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is a stunning presentation in the iconic color of Viper Green with bold black “GT3 RS” graphics emblazoned along the sides. The interior is dressed in rich black leather and Alcantara with deviated Viper Green stitching on the seats, dash and side panels. A genuine Porsche-issued Viper Green rollbar and thin-shell racing seats complete the cabin. The GT3 RS occupies a focused niche in the 911 lineup and uses a host of specialized parts. The engine block is referred to as the “Mezger” engine—a motorsports-derived powerplant that is distinctly different than the one used in the other standard 997 generation-one models. This 3.6L horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine produces 415 HP—an amazing 1.88 HP per cubic inch in naturally aspirated form. Under the guidance of Andreas Preuninger—Porsche’s ace Chief Development Engineer—the entire setup on the GT3 has been reconfigured with larger brakes, sculpted body pieces to add aerodynamic downforce, recalibrated suspension and lowered ride height. The GT3 RS is visually distinguished from its GT3 sibling with a wide rear fender body—one that is shared with the Carrera 4—in order to accommodate wider wheels and tires. It is further endowed with carbon-ceramic brakes and the following weight-saving features: an adjustable carbon-fiber rear wing, plastic engine cover and a thin-gauge glass rear window. The net result is a factory-rated top speed of 193 MPH and 0-60 MPH acceleration time of just 4.3 seconds. This example has only 8,571 original miles and is additionally optioned with air conditioning and Sport Chrono. The GT3 has long been considered the best driver’s car of the entire Porsche lineup, and the rare RS versions only serve to enhance the attributes that have led to such praise from Porschephiles.

F12 1948 Lincoln Continental 8H181029 Not given Not given N/R $19,800 N/A Jet Black over Red. If perhaps the Lincoln Continental from the year 1948 is not something you are familiar with, do not be surprised. Cars such as the one offered here were never commonplace, even in the enclaves where the well-to-do gathered. This was the very final year for the first-generation design on this luxury name, which had first been introduced in late 1939, following the creation of a customized example built exclusively for Edsel Ford himself. After this year’s release, the nameplate would subsequently disappear until the latter half of the 1950s, leaving its origins of exclusivity intact for future owners. Indeed, with a base price of $4,662, a mere 1,650 Club Coupes were produced in 1948, and this car has had a recent, no-expense-spared refreshing to OEM condition. Under the hood is the legendary 292 CI V-12 Lincoln engine, perfect for smooth and dynamic acceleration in this body style, coupled to the factory 3-speed transmission with overdrive. The stunning body lines have earned this model a “Full Classic” designation by the CCCA, and in this instance the car features dual chrome mirrors, bumper guards, pushbutton door openers and exclusive lettering and trim. The continental rear wheel kit—among the European-type accessories that were the origins of the vehicle’s name—complements the jet-black paint and helps complete the look of elegance. Upon entry, one is stunned by the plush red interior components, and this automobile is appointed with power windows, deluxe radio and clock, instrument panel and fluted accents, all which help make this a premium example of early postwar automotive beauty. Rounding out the appearance are wide whitewall tires and full-size wheel covers, a fitting complement to this vehicle. That year, advertising for this model was unpretentious, showing only the car with the scripted words “Nothing Could Be Finer…” That adage remains true with this Club Coupe, certain to be appreciated by whomever becomes its next caretaker. via Mecum Monterey ’18 Not sold $50 – 65k.

F31 1974 BMW 2002 Tii 2782661 $30,000 $40,000 N/R $37,400 Mid This 1974 BMW 2002 Tii has spent its entire life in the arid climate zones of California and Arizona, and it’s generously optioned with a factory sunroof, air conditioning, BBS-style alloy wheels and Hella fog lights. Treated to a sympathetic cosmetic restoration in 2014, the car has been resprayed in the factory-correct color of Chamonix White with polished exterior trim—bumpers, moldings and door handles—and new rubber seals and weather stripping. The black interior features BMW sport seats, new carpet, a new headliner and a motorsports-inspired steering wheel. The 2002 Tii occupies a sacred spot in the BMW lineage. The 2002 Tii represents the final iteration of the model series that began in 1966 and is performance equipped with Kugelfischer Fuel Injection delivering 130 SAE HP—as opposed to 119 HP in the standard twin-carb 2002.
F32 1988 Ford Mustang GT Convertible 1FABP45EXJF108145 $25,000 $40,000 N/R $23,100 -8% Stored in a climate-controlled environment since it left the factory in a rare triple-white color combination, this unrestored 1988 Ford Mustang GT Convertible stands unscathed in highly original condition. The Washington-state time capsule was under the careful stewardship of a single owner since it was purchased new until September 2018, and it has been driven only 9,500 believed-original miles. The American high-performance icon is an outstanding example of what many consider the apex of Fox-platform, third-generation Mustang development. Dealer-fresh books and manuals, the original purchase invoice and maintenance records are included. Any malaise-era V-8 performance doldrums were well and truly forgotten by 1988. With multiport electronic fuel injection, roller-tappet camshaft and forged pistons the 5.0L GT V-8 was rated for 225 HP at 4,200 RPM and 300 lb-ft of torque at 3,200 RPM. The mighty Five-O is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. Independent MacPherson front suspension, power-assist rack-and-pinion steering and a coil-spring 4-link rear axle were engineered for road-hugging handling. Power front disc and rear drum brakes bring the Mustang back from high speed with confidence. A factory GT-specification front air dam with integrated fog lamps and air scoops, flared rocker panels and rear fascia aero body cladding speak fluent 1988 design language, and lowering the power-operated convertible top reveals an interior resplendent in 1980s style. Bucket seats feature adjustable side and under-leg bolsters and power lumbar support for grand-touring comfort, and the factory-issue AM/FM cassette four-speaker stereo is ready for that mint-condition Guns N’ Roses or Def Leppard tape. The Mustang waits to transport its next owner back into late ’80s pony car perfection on Ford styled road wheels and wide radial tires.
F32.1 1993 Landrover Defender 110 Not given Not given Not sold Not sold N/A
F33 1960 Triumph TR3A Roadster TS62514L $35,000 $45,000 N/R $25,300 -28% Triumph’s TR sporting tradition began with the bluff-fronted TR2 of 1953, a rugged no-nonsense, affordable 100 MPH sports car that epitomized the British bulldog spirit on wheels. Initially rather sparse on creature comforts—and not even equipped with external door handles—the theme really gained traction with the tidied-up TR3 of 1955, which offered space for an occasional rear seat, more power from the tough 1991cc 4-cylinder engine and, from 1956, became one of the first cars in its class to be supplied with front disc brakes. Just as noteworthy was the fact that with its 104 MPH top speed it was barely outpaced by the considerably more expensive 6-cylinder Austin-Healey 100/6. While gaining a considerable reputation on car-breaking European rallies and the race track, including works entries in the Le Mans 24 Hours, the TR3 evolved further. In 1956, a revised cylinder head raised power to 100 HP, and though not an official designation, the so-called TR3A of 1957 had a full-width grille incorporating side lights and indicators, faired-in headlights, improved accommodation and lockable door and trunk handles. By the end of production in 1961, a total of 58,236 TR3As had been built, the vast majority for export, and most of those found homes in the United States. While retaining the character and charm of earlier TRs, this late TR3A produced in 1960 incorporates all the improvements and upgrades that make it the most refined and enjoyable to drive. Where so many have been fitted with chromed wire wheels, this left-hand drive example pleasingly rides on steel disc wheels as per factory fit. With a believed overall mileage of 58,000, it also benefits from a restoration carried out 6,000 miles ago. Finished in British Racing Green accented with wide whitewall tires, this rugged and charismatic true Brit combines period charm with an ownership experience that is far less intense than many more fragile exotics that offer little more in performance and come with considerably higher running costs.
F34 1934 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia 1442669120 $20,000 $25,000 N/R $20,350 Mid The 1974 model year marked the end of the run for the fabulous Volkswagen Karmann Ghia after nearly 20 years of production. This example was recently restored into its original, factory-issued, distinctive Ravenna Green and beige interior combination. The sport coupe was among the last of its kind imported for the American market, and it features rare Volkswagen dealer-installed air conditioning to provide comfort on hot summer days. The Karmann Ghia made its debut in 1955 with a shapely design by Ghia of Italy and a steel body by Karmann Coachworks of Germany. The low-slung coupe echoed the 1953 Chrysler D’Elegance that Carrozzeria Ghia handcrafted into reality from a Virgil Exner design. The famously durable, horizontally opposed, air-cooled flat 4-cylinder engine was rated for 46 HP at 4,000 RPM with a single downdraft carburetor and sent its determined power to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission. The Karmann Ghia shared its torsion bar and trailing arm suspension with its Type 1 brand mates, but the aerodynamic body was far less susceptible to wind buffeting than the iconic Beetle and enabled the sports coupe to hit a top speed of 90 MPH. The Karmann Ghia was an immediate success, and its timeless design changed little over the production run. The hand-finished steel body was repainted during the restoration in its original color. The sport coupe interior was brought back to fantastic condition from its headliner to its adjustable leatherette bucket seats and door-to-door carpeting. The original dealer-installed air conditioning and a factory-issue AM/FM radio deliver cabin comfort and entertainment. Volkswagen replaced the vestigial rear seat with a carpeted package shelf for 1974, and this final year Karmann Ghia rides on custom EMPI GT-8 alloy wheels with polished lips and radial tires.
F36 1969 GMC Pickup CS10DZA20232 $32,000 $42,000 N/R $18,700 -42% General Motors performance cars have been iconic keepsakes for all our lives, and now, finally, its trucks are following suit. Chevrolet and GMC introduced a new generation of light trucks in 1967. This 1969 GMC half-ton short-bed Fleetside pickup stands as an example of a thoroughly optioned truck, but it’s also a case study in how subtle customizing of these rigs goes a long way. From GMC, this was a big-block pickup, its 396 CI V-8 mated to a Turbo 400 automatic transmission with column shift. This truck was also built with power steering and brakes. It featured factory air conditioning, which today has been upgraded with a polished Sanden compressor. The four-section GMC grille has been replaced by a clean, horizontal-bar billet-style unit. At the rear is a rolled lower body pan. The door jambs, interior cab metal and hood underside have been painted to match, and there’s new LED lighting from front to rear. The bench seat is redone in two-tone tweed. There’s a Kenwood sound system with Bluetooth phone connection to keep everyone entertained, and Equis auxiliary gauges, plus a column-mounted tachometer, help to keep the driver informed. The 396 is now fed by a Holley 4-barrel carburetor atop an aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold. Full-length stainless headers direct the exhaust through an H-pipe and exit through the side in front of the rear wheels. Among the brightwork that one can savor are a March polished aluminum serpentine belt system, a chromed cover for the GM 12-bolt rear end, a polished aluminum transmission pan and a Budnik forged-aluminum steering wheel. The custom frame-mounted fuel cell has a bed-mounted inlet and stainless fittings throughout. The truck’s lowered stance speaks for itself. This 1969 GMC Pickup represents an opportunity to experience GM’s rich history in a whole new way.
F37 1973 Ford Pinto 3R10X152534 $25,000 $35,000 N/R $6,600 -74% Here’s a statistic that will stun many a person: during the little car’s lifespan, the Ford Motor Company built more than 3.1 million examples of the Pinto subcompact, and 484,512 of them were 1973 models, marking the car’s second-best sales year. Where did they all go? It seems as if one is more likely to run across a Model T nowadays than a Pinto from the 1970s. Given the fact that Pintos were driven, abused, thrashed, raced and modified, it’s even more unusual to locate a professionally restored Pinto like this 1973 two-door sedan. Its 2.0L OHC inline-4 was the larger of the two Pinto engines offered in 1973, and it’s mated here to an automatic transmission. The 64,500 miles that are showing on this Pinto’s odometer are believed to be original and accurate. That latter descriptor, accurate, does a great job of summarizing this story of Ford’s first stateside-built subcompact. It has a correct-but-atypical combination of gold paint and carpeting combined with white vinyl seats and interior panels. The sport steering wheel is more properly located inside a Mustang II, but the sale includes the Pinto’s stock two-spoke wheel, plus a car cover. The engine bay is spotlessly clean and features a reproduction Autolite battery. The Pinto’s owner recognized its place of significance in the Ford Motor Company’s postwar history and submitted it for a professional restoration. Let’s be perfectly honest here: the Pinto represented Ford’s first real effort to produce an American-made car that could compete with the OPEC-fueled tidal wave of small imports. Its stunning sales numbers prove that buyers liked what they saw, and, as such, the Pinto deserved better treatment than history has allowed up to now. This is a chance to own a critical piece of Ford’s heritage.
F38 1979 Mercury Bobcat 9T20Y603097 $20,000.00 $30,000.00 N/R Not sold Not sold N/A Unveiled on November 30, 1973, as the Canadian-market twin to the Ford Pinto, the Mercury Bobcat first appeared in Lincoln-Mercury’s Canadian showrooms for the 1974 model year, and it was then added to the American product mix the following year. The history of Canadian-only Ford products dates back to 1904, when the parent company, just one year after its founding, organized the Ford Motor Company of Canada Limited in Toronto to manufacture Ford automobiles throughout the British Commonwealth. Badge engineering was a part of the Canadian Ford lineup almost from the beginning, but it took a firm hold in the postwar period, when Ford of Canada Marketing Chief Rhys Sale—with backing from company president Wallace Campbell—established an economy-priced Mercury product line to compete with small Canadian Dodge and Pontiac models and the midsized Monarch, which sold through Ford of Canada dealers. Canadian-market trim features even sometimes found their way onto Australian Fords, typically a year after being replaced in domestic production models. Interestingly, the only instance of Canadian trim cross-pollinating back onto an American Ford was in the case of the 1975 Pinto, which got its new front grille and hood from the previous year’s Mercury Bobcat. The 1979 Bobcat offered here presents in very nice condition, its Tangerine paint and white accents complemented with a bright, matching interior featuring Alpine plaid cloth seats and the Sports Accent Group’s Sport steering wheel, temperature, amperage and fuel gauges, and tachometer. It is exceptionally well optioned with Rally wheels with bright trim rings, air conditioning (serviced and upgraded to R134A refrigerant), factory flip-up/removable moonroof with sunshade, glass rear hatch, AM/FM radio, dual racing mirrors and accessory cargo cover. Its 2.3L 4-cylinder engine—rebuilt, detailed and reassembled by a Ford specialist—drives through a floor-shifted 3-speed automatic. Refreshed with a new carburetor, radiator, hoses, thermostat, starter, door seals, rear hatch support and shocks, this charming Bobcat is ready to dish up the fun.
F39 1968 Buick Riviera 494878H908585 $20,000 $30,000 $19,800 -1% Without a doubt, this 1968 Buick Riviera “Stealth Custom” makes an extremely bold statement with its matte black paint, shaved door handles and mirrors, blacked-out trim and emblems, black-painted bumpers and a custom billet grille. This is not a car that is likely to blend into the scenery—it really is the scene. Powered by a 430 CI Buick V-8 engine with a 4-barrel carburetor, it is factory-rated at 360 HP at 5,000 RPM with 475 lb-ft of torque at 3,200 RPM. It is hooked to an automatic transmission for smooth, torquey operation. The Riviera also features power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, a bench seat with a fold-down center armrest, tilt wheel, custom window tint and a specifically tailored sound system with upgraded speakers, custom speaker door mounts and two subwoofers in the trunk. Further accentuating its “longer, lower and wider” proportions, the Riviera also features custom black 18- and 20-inch Hostile wheels mounting Ohtsu FP8000 tires, as well as VIAIR air suspension with twin compressors and eLevel controller. Following on the success of the original 1963-65 Riviera, the second-generation Riviera was built from 1966-70 and continued on the General Motors E-body platform. A dramatically restyled vision of the personal luxury car, the second-generation Riviera traded the sharp, crisp lines for a sleeker, more flowing design. The changes were characterized by a “faster” windshield profile, semi-fastback roofline and an upsweeping beltline. The familiar Riviera design cues, such as the hidden headlamps, open wheel wells and tastefully restrained use of chrome, were retained in a fresh, new interpretation. For the custom car fan, movie prop manager or enthusiast who admires the best of the Bill Mitchell-era General Motors designs, this one-of-a-kind 1968 Buick Riviera would be an excellent cruiser that will turn heads in daylight but stealthily slip past at night.
F40 1931 Hudson Sedan Streetrod CA974333 $55,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Red over Tan. As iconoclastic as Hot Rodders can be, few have ventured into the territory established by the builder of this 1931 Hudson Sedan. Established in 1909, the Hudson Motor Car Company quickly rose to prominence as one of the country’s biggest and most successful auto manufacturers, reaching its peak in third place behind Ford and Chevrolet in 1925. Hudson contributed many innovations to the industry, including dual brakes, dashboard-mounted oil-pressure and generator warning lights, the first balanced crankshaft and the placement of the steering wheel and driver controls to the left. The innovative Step-Down models introduced the advanced Twin-H Power inline-6 engine and dominated early NASCAR, all contributing to making the Hudson name a classic of American automotive history. It’s impossible to know, but Joseph L. Hudson—the successful Detroit department store entrepreneur who lent his name and capital to the company upon its founding—might have been delighted with this multiple award-winning Street Rod bearing his name. Featured in a 1996 issue of “Street Rodder” magazine, its monolithic engine was supplanted by a Chevrolet 427 CI big-block V-8 rebuilt by Bell & Gaines of Modesto, California. The new resident is built to perform, incorporating aluminum heads, a Weber 4-barrel carburetor on an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, MSD 6A ignition and Hedman headers feeding dual exhaust. A high-flow radiator and electric fan keep thermal output under control. The car’s brilliant red paint was laid down over straight coachwork, a striking contrast to the Hudson hardware and chrome accents, which include dual horns, grille-mounted stone guard, cowl lights, mirrors and Zenith wire wheels. Tan upholstery provides attractive accents inside and on the roof, rear luggage compartment and dual side-mount spares. Rakishly lowered over Kugel front suspension, this unique Hudson also features air conditioning, power steering and disc brakes, cruise control and a Kenwood CD stereo. via Mecum Monterey ’18 Not sold $80 – 95k.
F41 1971 Porsche 911T Coupe 911 112 1492 $50,000 $70,000 N/R $46,200 -8% This 1971 Porsche 911T Coupe was delivered new to the Martin-Johnson Porsche and Audi Sports and Import Center in Oakland, California. Known locally as the “Enthusiast’s Store,” the downtown dealer leased the coupe to an area-company executive. It was purportedly driven regularly by the executive’s wife before returning to Martin-Johnson once the lease period had expired. The current owner purchased the car when it came off-lease in 1974, and the vehicle has never left the San Francisco Bay Area. After nearly 18 years of enjoyment, the coupe was taken off the road in 1992 and stowed away for long-term storage. It wasn’t until two decades later, in 2012, that the 911T was pulled out of hibernation. Many parts were refreshed and updated, including new disc brakes, shocks and struts. The original, silver-painted wheels were also refinished, returning them to their 1971 splendor. Power comes from an air-cooled 2.2L 6-cylinder engine. Gears are selected through a 5-speed manual transmission, and stopping power is aided with the aforementioned disc brakes. Inside the coupe’s cabin, there’s seating for four, and the original black vinyl upholstery is intact. The car is equipped with desirable factory air conditioning, but for those who want to feel the wind in their hair, the factory sunroof more than satisfies that urge. Driven 72,200 believed-original miles, this performance-oriented vehicle retains some wonderful mementos from its past, including its original owner’s manual, tool kit and original maintenance booklet, which was stamped for each service performed at Martin-Johnson. It also retains its factory-installed spare tire and jack. An unrestored example that has been in the loving care of the same owner for 45 years, this 911T is offered with receipts for the repairs and work that total more than $22,000.
F42 1970 Dodge Super Bee WM23V0A124286 $45,000 $65,000 $40,700 -10% The name Super Bee came to denote the all-business side of Dodge’s high-performance offerings, and this V-code Six Pack version from 1970 lives up to the reputation because the only thing cute about this ‘Bee were the bug logos. Seriously equipped for power from day one, this restored Dodge was one of 599 V-code Super Bee hardtops produced with the 4-speed in 1970. As noted, the engine is a V-code 440 Six Pack design, so named because of the trio of heavy-breathing Holley 2-barrel carburetors mounted on an Edelbrock aluminum intake under the oval air cleaner. With your hand atop the Hurst Pistol Grip and sidestepping the clutch, you fired up through the gears of the A833 Chrysler 4-speed manual transmission, while a tough 3.55-geared Sure Grip Dana rear end dished it all out through tires that were sometimes screaming louder than the engine. When you were done, power brakes with front discs were thankfully part of the package as well, while fresh air entered the powerplant through the special twin-scoop Ramcharger hood with an underhood scoop-to-carb seal. Sedate? Not with that High Impact Top Banana Yellow paint and white C-stripe complete with the bee graphics surrounding the rear quarter panels. Inside is a beautiful white bucket-seat interior that features the performance dash with wood-grain trim, Tic-Toc-Tach, AM radio and 150 MPH speedometer. Of course, the exterior design was unique only to 1970, an unmistakable visage of the Super Bee’s legacy and the final model season the name was on the Coronet-shaped B-body. A chromed-and-painted metal Super Bee emblem is on the centered hood divider, with a full-size spare in the trunk. This car rides on the 5-spoke styled road wheels, but was upgraded further with BF Goodrich radial tires, a fitting end to the serious possibilities this car offers over the road. Dodge’s Scat Pack had a true reputation, and this gorgeous yellow and white example helped put the sting into it.
F43 1930 Ford Model A Roadster LB8743 $70,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Built by Ken Woodruff of Cayucos, California, this multiple-award winning 1930 Ford Model A Roadster has been a fixture on the West Coast Rodding circuit for years. A member of the Central Coast Roadsters Club in California, Woodruff tailored his custom Model A with a plethora of old school touches that combine for one very classically flavored ride. The project was centered on a steel 1930 Model A body by highly regarded vintage Ford experts Brookville Roadsters of Brookville, Ohio, whose well-built steel bodies are manufactured of the same gauge steel as the original Ford body. A custom louvered hood panel and 1932 Ford frame and radiator assembly form the rest of the main structure. The car takes a page out of Mopar’s performance catalog in the form of a show-prepped 1957 Chrysler FirePower 392 CI Hemi V-8 engine. Fitted with a time-proven tri-power carburetion setup fed by a Moon front-mounted fuel tank and using Rochester carburetors on a polished aluminum intake manifold, Mopar electronic ignition, a Chevrolet big-block water pump and chromed 4-into-1 headers with dump tubes, the Hemi powers through a 400 Turbo Hydra-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission to a Currie 9-inch Ford rear end with a limited-slip differential. Riding on Firestone wide whitewall tires mounted on red powder-coated wheels, the car is brought to a halt by drum rear and power front disc brakes from So-Cal Speed Shop. The roadster’s award-winning blue metallic paint is decorated with traditional pinstriped flames by Tim Broberg of Nipomo, California, and it shows off a sharp, custom interior highlighted by aviation-themed aluminum seats. This fabulous Model A won the Goodguys Homebuilt Heaven Award at the 2009 West Coast Nationals, First in Class and the Chief Judges Award at the 2012 San Luis Obispo Concours d’Elegance and Second in Class at the 2014 LA Roadster Show, and it was on the cover of the December 2013 issue of “Goodguys Gazette” magazine.
F45 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 2C3CDZH97JH102423 $100,000.00 $130,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A If you’re going to be the baddest of the bad, go big. That’s what Fiat Chrysler Automobiles did when it sold, all too briefly, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon as the most formidable factory-built race car in many a moon. From the outset, FCA said availability would be limited to the 2018 model year only, which was when Dodge sold about 3,000 Demons statewide and another 300 in Canada. This is a nearly new exercise in Demonology. The Challenger’s odometer reads just 139 actual miles. The Demon’s 6.2L supercharged Hemi V-8 is fitted with special electronic engine controls that allow it to produce 840 HP on racing gasoline, far eclipsing the Challenger SRT Hellcat, Dodge’s previous bad-boy power leader. This Demon still retains its factory-installed, ultra-gummy Nitto performance radial tires. This Demon comes with what FCA called the Demon Crate, which included the likes of a hydraulic floor jack, cordless impact wrench, torque wrench and a fender cover, as well as other model-specific goodies. This car’s Demon Crate is still unopened and on its original shipping pallet, even including the 4.5-inch-wide front wheels that were also part of the package. What does 840 HP let you do? The Demon was NHRA-certified to run 9.65 seconds at 140 MPH in the quarter mile as factory stock, aided by its 8-speed automatic transmission with trans brake. It was believably billed as the only production car in automotive history that was able to carry its front wheels on a hard launch. It still wears its custom-class California black license plate, and it comes complete with a winter car cover and a battery tender. This is a car with an unswervingly serious mission, and at the same time, an outrageously strong piece of Chrysler history.
F46 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 10867S105101 $70,000 $90,000 $88,000 Mid Time stands still in this 1961 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, thanks to a ground-up nut-and-bolt restoration completed to the demanding standards of the National Corvette Restorers Society. The 1961 Corvette featured the final redesign of the first generation with less exterior chrome, a simple mesh grille insert in place of the former vertical chromed “teeth,” and a new rear design treatment inspired by GM Styling Director Bill Mitchell’s 1958 XP-700 show car. The new sharp-edged tail also gave the public a sneak peek at the twin bullet tail lights and slender bumperettes that would become signature Corvette features beginning with the all-new 1963 Sting Ray. More power became available in 1961 with the introduction of high-flow cylinder heads based on the previous year’s experimental factory aluminum racing units, increasing peak output to 315 HP at 6,200 RPM and 295 lb-ft of torque at 4,700 RPM. Other refinements included switching to aluminum for the 4-speed transmission case and the radiator, which also used a separate overflow tank. One of only 855 1961 Corvettes finished in striking Jewel Blue, this example is one of even fewer fitted with a matching blue interior. Even more significantly, it boasts a matching-numbers drivetrain composed of the RPO 354 283/315 HP small-block V-8 engine featuring Rochester Ramjet mechanical fuel injection complemented with the Duntov solid-lifter cam and 11.0:1 compression. Built in late January 1961, it carries the correct engine-block casting numbers indicating a casting date of January 9, 1961, and assembly on January 16, and head castings dated December 12, 1960. Other correctly date-coded and numbered components include the generator and starter, water pump, distributor, fuel pump, voltage regulator, horn relay, BorgWarner 4-speed manual transmission case and tail-shaft housing, 3.70 Positraction differential and Rochester fuel-injection unit. Driven just 250 miles since its restoration, this Jewel Blue 1961 Corvette is offered with both a soft top and hardtop.
F49 1985 Porsche 911 Cabriolet WP0EB0917FS171031 $75,000.00 $90,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1985 Porsche 911 Cabriolet is factory optioned with the Turbo-look wide-body package, and it presents beautifully in the iconic color combination of Guards Red exterior with a tan, leather interior featuring sport seats. The car benefits from a comprehensive engine rebuild, as well as the installation of a new clutch assembly and new brakes. The Turbo-look package—officially referred to as Option M491—was available to discriminating Porsche customers in 1985 and could be ordered on the coupe, cabriolet and targa models. The scope of work included welding on new fender extensions on an existing narrow-body 911. It was extremely labor intensive, requiring the partial removal of fender sections, TIG welding on the new steel fender extensions and dressing the fenders to a finished appearance. Old-world methods and materials were used in the process, such as lead filler. After the fenders were successfully flared, the front apron with the elastic spoiler was merged with the side parts. Likewise, the rear section received the same fitment of lower parts, and a rear decklid spoiler with an elastic lip was installed. There were additional mechanical bits that came with the M491 package, including cross-drilled and vented disc brakes with multi-piston calipers sourced from the iconic 930 Turbo—the same brakes that were originally used on the all-conquering 917 race car. Wider 16-inch wheels and tires were also sourced from the 930 Turbo, as well as front and rear stabilizer bars of Turbo specification. Not only was the M491 package expensive, it also required a long wait time for completion because of the nature of its customization. The base 911 Carrera platform that this car is based on is a universally acknowledged piece of Teutonic engineering genius with a solid reputation for performance, reliability and style.
F50 1994 Chevrolet Corvette Cabriolet 40867S109905 $90,000.00 $120,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Sold new at Souther Chevrolet in Hollywood, South Carolina, to a serviceman stationed at Charlestown Air Force Base, this gorgeous 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible was built on January 27, 1964. It is one of just 1,325 Corvettes produced with Rochester fuel injection that model year and, it is estimated, one of fewer than 100 Fuelie convertibles finished in Tuxedo Black. The year 1964 was the penultimate for the Rochester fuel-injected L84 327 CI engine, which Chevrolet phased out in mid-1965 to make way for the new generation of Mark IV big-block engines. The Rochester fuel-injection system was one of Zora Arkus-Duntov’s major contributions in redefining the Corvette from a stylish but rudimentary boulevardier to a serious performer. An early advocate of fuel injection, Chevrolet Chief Engineer Ed Cole assigned Arkus-Duntov to work with the engineering staff’s John Dolza on its development. By 1955, it was Arkus-Duntov’s chief assignment, which he performed with such secrecy that Cole made sure it was hidden from GM budget management. At 283 HP, the first production Fuelie Corvettes made headlines in 1957, when they were advertised as the first to produce 1 HP per cubic inch. By 1964, the small-block V-8 displaced 327 CI and, with the benefit of years of development, produced well in excess of its advertised 375 HP. A 1964 L84-equipped Corvette was by any measure the standard of high performance, not to mention it was one of the best-looking machines on the road: case in point, this arresting triple black Sting Ray convertible comprehensively restored in 2018 with new paint, a new interior and soft top, new chrome and new blackwall tires. A factory code-900 Tuxedo Black car optioned with Soft Ray-tinted glass, a standard black interior, 4-speed manual transmission, power brakes, Delco AM/FM radio and finned-aluminum knock-off wheels, this rare Fuelie convertible is documented with the car shipper, order form, dealer invoice, sale contract and letters of correspondence between previous owners.
F51 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria U5GW140440 $70,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A In the 1950s, an automotive decade known and beloved for the copious applications of chromium-plated metal for visual enhancement, this car may boast the most immediately recognizable loop of chrome in that entire decade. The 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria was a transformative model for Dearborn. Not only did the entire line boast new, semi-finned sheet metal, but Ford delivered a landmark remake of its Victoria, a nameplate denoting a “personal car” that had been in Ford’s nomenclature since 1932. For 1955, the concept was reborn as the Fairlane Crown Victoria and was visually distinguished from other Ford two-doors by the chrome molding that rose from the car’s beltline and looped over the middle of its roof. For a few more dollars, Ford sweetened the deal by adding a “Skyliner” transparent glass top panel that ran from the windshield frame to the roof loop. Just 1,999 Fairlane Crown Victorias were built with the glass roof, and this example, which only needed a cosmetic restoration, is one of them. Formerly owned by collector Charlie Thomas, it currently resides in an esteemed California collection. Representing the midpoint of Ford’s engine selections in 1955, its 272 CI Y-block overhead-valve V-8 is fitted with a 4-barrel carburetor, dual exhausts and a correct oil-bath air cleaner, and it’s coupled to a Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission. Finished in a stunning combination of Snowshoe White and Tropical Rose with a matching two-tone interior, this car keeps its occupants fresh thanks to Ford’s Magic Aire ventilation systems. Appearance-wise, it goes the whole ‘50s cruiser route with rear fender skirts, dual spotlights and dual antennas atop the rear quarter panels. Coker Classic wide whitewall tires are mounted on chromed wire wheels complete with spinners. Interior options include an AM pushbutton radio and an analog clock. It will be difficult to find a car that bespeaks 1950s touring more loudly than this one.
F54 1972 Oldsmobile 442 Hurst Indy Pacecar 3J67U2M208109 $50,000 $75,000 N/R $59,400 Mid An extraordinary degree of originality and a wealth of documentation are two hallmarks of this unrestored 1972 Oldsmobile Hurst/Olds Pace Car Edition Convertible. One of only 639 Hurst/Olds Pace Car Editions built in 1972 and one of only 130 Hurst/Olds convertibles, this Pace Car Edition was delivered new to Sim Hudson Motor Company in Burlington, Colorado. It originally served duty as a dealer demonstrator by franchise owner Hazel Hudson, one of very few female GM franchise owners in the 1960s and ‘70s. Hudson purchased the Hurst/Olds in 1974 as a new car and retained ownership until she passed away in 2005. Founded in 1922 and sold in 1983, the Sim Hudson Motor Company was one of the first GM dealerships in the state of Colorado, and today, the Art Deco showroom building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The 1972 Oldsmobile Hurst/Olds Pace Car Edition marked the first time ever that a major automotive supplier’s name was included in a pace car’s official title. By 1972, the muscle car craze was receding, but the production Cutlass was still up to the task of pacing the Memorial Day classic. Based on the convertible Cutlass chassis, it was powered by the same 455 CI V-8 engine as before. Despite a reduction in compression to 8.5:1 that had reduced output to 300 HP and 375 lb-ft of torque, it was still plenty of power to do the job, and festooned in the famous white and gold livery, the Hurst/Olds Pace Car did it with flair. Beautifully preserved and retaining the original driveline, paint and interior, this example combines the 455 CI V-8 and Hurst-shifted automatic transmission with factory air conditioning, power steering and front disc brakes, power windows and locks, a power top and AM/FM radio with 8-track cassette player. Documentation includes the original dealer invoice and dealer carbon copy, dealer’s copy of the invoice from GM, Hurst build invoice, punch card, odometer statement, previous registrations, key punch-outs and owner’s manual.
F55 1934 Ford Cabriolet 873702 $60,000 $90,000 N/R $53,900 -10% In 1932, Ford introduced what would be known as the Model B, a vehicle that brought about a number of improvements and advancements over the Model A. The Model B would have a sibling known as the Model 18, which would become infamous for introducing the Ford flathead V-8 engine. V-8s were normally reserved for more upscale, expensive cars of the era, so the opportunity to acquire a V-8 car priced in the entry-level market was very exciting. Legend has it that bank robber Clyde Barrow preferred to “borrow” V-8 Fords as they consistently outperformed police cars both in overall speed and endurance, actually sending a letter to Henry Ford at one point complimenting him on the engineering marvel. And with some period Hot Rod upgrades, this is one Ford that Barrow would be thrilled to get his hands on. This 1934 Ford Cabriolet is propelled forward by a flathead V-8 engine equipped with Edmunds heads that breathes through three Stromberg 97 carburetors and dual exhaust. All of that power is pushed through a floor-shifted 3-speed manual out to the spiral-bevel differential and down to the pavement through painted wire wheels wrapped in whitewall tires and accented with Ford-script hubcaps. Its front and rear transverse leaf springs help to keep the ride smooth for both passengers beneath the manual folding top and those taking advantage of this Ford’s rumble seat, while mechanical drum brakes are ready to scrub off speed when needed. Its steel body is cloaked in maroon paint with red longitudinal accent striping, as well as several other accoutrements, including cowl lamps, a greyhound mascot and a rear-mounted spare tire in a color-matching metal case. Whether it be sunny-day cruising or by the light of the moon, this 1934 Ford Cabriolet is a true classic that’s willing to hit the road.
F56 1967 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 157657424 $25,000 $35,000 N/R $22,000 -12% The Volkswagen Beetle had proven its mettle by 1967, with sales in the millions around the world and a loyal following. For the late 1960s, in the United States, the Volkswagen name had become synonymous with freedom, thanks to the low cost of entry, low cost of maintenance, reliability, great fuel economy and hip factor with the youth movement. Flower children and grad students alike seemed to gravitate toward the Beetles and Busses back in the day, and this one easily takes people on a journey back to those times. Finished in the rare light yellow exterior color with a black and white interior, this Beetle was given a body-off restoration in 2016 and emerged looking spectacular, with subtle details throughout. Powered by a 1500cc 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission, the Beetle is a great city car—easy to park, easy on gas and easy to drive, it’s no wonder young people loved it. Through the restoration, this convertible also received a new top with custom boot cover, twin sideview mirrors and an Alpine radio. Maintained by Oak Hill Automotive, this Beetle convertible is ready for the next owner’s enjoyment. The 1967 model year was a pivotal moment for the Beetle; it was the last year for the glass-covered headlights and classically known body style, and the first year for the 12-volt system. The late 1960s would also mark a noticeable sales decline at Volkswagen, as newer, more modernly styled vehicles from Japan, Europe and the U.S. would begin to infiltrate the market, giving people other options for inexpensive, easy-to-maintain cars. Vehicles like the Fiat 850 and 124, Datsun 510, Toyota Corolla, Ford Maverick and subsequent Pinto, Chevrolet Corvair and Nova and more all began crowding the marketplace that the Beetle had largely developed. Interestingly, however, the popularity of the Beetle continued on through the 1970s, its customer base largely unfazed by the influx of new ideas from other manufacturers. For the most part, when the competition went out of production with nary a few hundred thousand units sold, the Beetle was still available, offering customers quality and a fun factor unmatched by most.
F57 1972 Fiat 500L 110F5057657 $25,000 $35,000 N/R $20,900 -16% This Fiat 500L is presented in dark blue with a red interior and matching livery. Rolling on gold-colored wheels, the Fiat features custom Abarth badges that were added to lend it flair and flash, as if the color and striping weren’t enough. The 1100cc engine is more than adequate at motivating the little Fiat down the road, and it’s complete with headers, a Weber carburetor and Abarth heads, valve covers and other appointments. A 4-speed manual guides the power to the rear wheels, and the driver keeps attention focused using a Carpo steering wheel. Restored in 2011, a closer study will show detail upon detail has gone into the presentation of this Fiat; the windshield wipers have a custom Abarth bridge, the drip rails have been treated to a checkered flag detailing, and the interior door panels, front seat covers and wheel centers have been adorned with Abarth badging. The black carpeting has been spiced up with red carpeted floor mats emblazoned with the Fiat badges—even the Carpo steering wheel is shod with red leather. Carlo Abarth was a pioneer in exhaust flow, knowing that more power could be had from an engine if the engine could exhale properly. Although he loved motorcycles, a series of accidents and hospital stays inspired Carlo to gravitate into the car industry, bringing his experience with small engines and exhausts to that field and helping create what became known as giant killers. His company, Abarth & C S.p.A., was founded in 1949 with Guido Scagliarini, their first effort being the 204 A Roadster based on the Fiat 1100. It won the 1100 Sport Championship and Formula 2, making an immediate name for the Abarth Company, which began producing tuning kits and exhaust systems for various cars. Today, Fiat still uses the Abarth name to denote its most exclusive, highest-performance vehicles with great fanfare. This classic 500L in Abarth livery is certain to please in more ways than one.
F58 1957 Chevrolet Nomad Resto mod VC570115167 $100,000 $125,000 N/R $90,200 -10% This dazzling 1957 Chevrolet Nomad marries the 1957’s iconic styling with 21st-century Corvette power and a wide array of choice custom touches. Based on an original California car, its body has been expertly hand-finished in brilliant diamond-base Scarlet Red two-stage paint to stunning effect. The full complement of Bel Air exterior trim was retained; the stainless trim has been polished and the hardware chrome plated. Scarlet-painted custom steel wheels are fitted with one-off custom stainless-steel spinner hubcaps, and wide whitewall tires pump up the Nomad’s period presentation. New Global West upper and lower tubular A-arms, modern power-assisted 4-wheel disc brakes and power steering contribute to the Nomad’s improved handling. The pristine engine compartment is home to a GM LS2 all-aluminum small-block V-8. First made available in the 2005 Corvette, the 6.0L LS2 delivers 400 HP at 6,000 RPM and 400 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 RPM. In this case, it is fitted with a selection of components from Street and Performance, including a polished billet serpentine-belt system and custom tube headers feeding stainless 2.5-inch Magnaflow dual exhaust. A polished aluminum radiator and electric cooling fan ensure proper operating temperatures. The hand-tailored interior is one of a kind, finished in two-tone saddle upholstery that complements the Scarlet paint. Mounted on a stainless-steel Flaming River steering column, the steering wheel replicates the 1957’s original factory wheel, yet is smaller in diameter to reflect the modern style. The dash is a carefully created blend of old and new, with a ‘50s-grade helping of chromed trim and moldings and highly polished stainless steel, Dakota Digital VHS gauges, a custom sound system and such traditional features as an in-dash clock, below-dash tissue dispenser and climate-control sliders, and custom-made center and original-style side vents for the air-conditioning system. More than 2,500 hours were invested in building this fabulous 1957 Chevrolet Nomad.
F59 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Convertible WDBBA48D0JA080236 $65,000 $85,000 $121,000 42% With a single owner and an astonishing 198 original miles, this 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Convertible is anxiously waiting to meet its next caretaker, who will hopefully plan to preserve and maintain its splendid showroom condition for the next 30-plus years. This 560SL was sold new at Crouch Motor Company in Boulder, Colorado, and is documented with the original window sticker, warranty card and retail purchase order. Its lineage runs back to 1971, and this outstanding example is among the last of the Mercedes-Benz R107 built before the platform was superseded in 1990. The engine bay displays a high level of as-delivered detail from the cold air intake to the Mercedes-Benz cooling system inspection tag. Bosch electro-mechanical multipoint fuel injection helps the 5.6L aluminum alloy OHC V-8 send a famously smooth 227 HP and 279 lb-ft of torque through a 4-speed automatic transmission and limited-slip rear differential. Power steering, 4-wheel independent suspension and 4-wheel power disc brakes with ABS were engineered for confident road control from the boulevard to the factory 139 MPH top speed, as indicated on analog VDO gauges. The car presents in Midnight Blue with a matching removable steel hardtop and blue power convertible soft top. Walnut burl trim adds hand-finished elegance to the gray leather bucket-seat interior, and automatic climate control provides air-conditioned comfort. Cruise control joins power windows and locks for convenience, and the Becker Grand Prix AM/FM/Cassette stereo with power antenna conveys precision entertainment. Books and manuals, a first aid kit and embroidered Mercedes-Benz floor mats add a measure of authenticity. The Mercedes-Benz 560SL is sharply appointed with mirror-polished alloy wheels and gold Mercedes-Benz star centers wrapped in Michelin tires. This car represents the final evolution of the R107 platform and stands as one of the best examples in the world with just 198 miles since new.
F60 1956 Bentley S1 B494LAN $45,000.00 $55,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A At a cost of nearly double that of Cadillac’s top-range offerings when it debuted in 1955, there was no doubt that the new Bentley S-type had to prove itself worthy among motorists around the world; and prove itself it did. Larger and roomier than the preceding R-type, with a longer all-new chassis and front suspension setup, the five- to six-seater S-type washed away any prewar influences with fully integrated front fenders and a tapering profile that satisfied modern tastes without offending traditionalists. In fact, the factory-issue Standard Steel bodywork was so satisfactory for the majority of consumers that of the 3,107 S-types built through 1959, only 145 were ordered with bespoke coachwork. The lavish appointments, including picnic tables and a leather interior set off with burl walnut, were taken for granted, as were refinements such as an electric ride control switch to vary the rear shock absorber settings. While the GM Hydra-Matic automatic transmission used in the preceding R-type was retained, performance was enhanced by adopting the enlarged 4887cc 6-cylinder block employed in the final R-type Continentals. The S-type was road tested at 103 MPH with 0-60 MPH coming up in 13.1 seconds. This 1956 S1 Saloon is a two-owner California car with 72,360 believed-original miles since new and service records dating back to 1964. A left-hand drive example, it is fitted with Standard Steel coachwork tastefully liveried in two-tone brown over light gold. The S1 is a fitting final flourish of the illustrious 6-cylinder Bentley theme that began in the 1920s, a fact appreciated by many owners who consider the S1 easier to live with than the V-8-powered S2 that followed. Moreover, although differing only in detail from its Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud counterpart, the S1 was considerably more popular. Perhaps that’s because Bentley owners generally preferred to drive rather than let chauffeurs have all the fun.
F61 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Fastback 0T05H126277 $50,000 $75,000 $49,500 -1% Built in October 1969 and delivered through the Denver, Colorado, District Sales Office, this 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 presents in fresh condition after a comprehensive rotisserie restoration. For 1969, the Mustang received its second restyling, much of it derived from the Mach 1 show car that toured the country in 1968. The new car was larger overall, yet 1.5 inches lower than before, emphasizing its already aggressive presence. The Mach 1 nameplate migrated from the concept car to a new model assigned to replace the GT as the highest-ranking performance Mustang, notwithstanding the limited-production Boss 302 and Boss 429 homologation specials. Based on the fastback SportsRoof, the Mach 1 featured special exterior touches by designer Larry Shinoda, the Deluxe Decor interior, Competition Suspension and a choice of performance drivelines. In addition to the new front styling treatment for all 1970 Mustangs, the 1970 Mach 1 sported a segmented hood stripe and complementary rear decklid stripe, a rear honeycomb insert, a unique front grille with driving lights, and fluted aluminum rocker panel inserts with large Mach 1 lettering. As before, the standard engine was the 351 CI 2V V-8, which in the case of this rotisserie-restored example has been upgraded with a 4-barrel carburetor on a Holley Dominator aluminum intake manifold and coupled with a C6 Cruise-O-Matic transmission. Complementing this Mach 1’s Competition Suspension package are power steering and brakes, as well as new BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires on optional Magnum 500 wheels. The color combination is a pleasing mixture of code-Q Medium Blue Metallic with black Mach 1 striping and blue Decor Group interior with white door panels and, unique to the Mach 1, code-W white knitted vinyl upholstery on the bucket seats. An exciting and rewarding performer, this Mach 1 is loaded with optional rear-window sport slats and a rear spoiler, tinted glass, twist hood locks, center console, a rim-blow steering wheel and a pushbutton AM radio.
F62 1969 Plymouth GTX RS23L9G191832 $75,000 $90,000 $66,000 -12% This is a fine example of a 1969 Plymouth GTX, something of a rarity these days. The sales numbers of this luxury-trimmed muscle car dipped noticeably that year, in no small part due to an explosion, production-wise, of its Plymouth stablemate, the Road Runner. Just 14,902 GTXs were produced in 1969, a few more than 4,000 of them being hardtops fitted with manual transmissions and powered by the brawny 440 CI Super Commando wedge V-8, which produced 375 HP, was fed by a single carburetor and was based on Chrysler’s RB engine block. This GTX hardtop has been the recipient of a rotisserie restoration, and its original Chrysler broadcast sheet is included in the sale. In terms of authentication, this GTX has a Chrysler Registry Report and fender-tag decoding among its documents. This is a well-optioned car, with a factory tachometer set into the dash cluster alongside its “flat” analog speedometer, front bucket seats with a center console, power steering and power brakes. Whoever first ordered this car intended to be quick in the quarter, as the GTX has a Dana 60 rear end fitted with 3.54 final-drive gearing. It rolls on redline tires mounted to chromed 5-spoke wheels. About the only departure from factory stock during the GTX’s restoration was the addition of a Vintage Air system with its outlets beneath the dashboard. The car’s unique AM radio with 8-track tape player is correct as well. It’s finished in 1969-correct Ivy Green, color code F8, with a factory black vinyl top and a black vinyl interior with imitation wood accents. The GTX, like the Buick GS and Mercury Cyclone of the same era, was based on a sound concept: take a stripped muscle car like the Road Runner and blend in a higher level of luxury appointments.
F63 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible 6F08C353752 $50,000.00 $75,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The original Ford Mustang carved out a whole new niche in the automotive world when it debuted in April 1964. It was unlike any car before it, specifically targeted at four disparate groups: two-car families with some measure of disposable income; young drivers of limited buying power; young women seeking low-maintenance transportation; and older drivers in search of something new and sporty. With three different body styles, more than 80 available options and dozens of exterior and interior color and trim choices, the Mustang could be personalized to an extent never seen before in the showrooms of America. Demand for the new car exceeded the wildest expectations, except those of Ford Division Vice President Lee Iacocca, who ordered Mustang’s initial production quota raised to 360,000 units. Ford sold 70,000 Mustangs in the first 30 days of production; mere months later, in the fall 1964 issue of the fledgling “Automobile Quarterly,” automotive writer L. Scott Bailey confidently predicted, “When today ripens into memory, I feel confident that the Mustang will have earned its niche as an immortal Ford.” Those words would ring true through the years in ways that even the visionary Bailey could not have conceived, the Mustang becoming an icon not only of the American automobile industry but of American pop culture. Secretary’s car, grocery-getter, status symbol, sports GT, all-out racer: the Mustang could be all those things and more, and it all began with cars like this 1966 convertible. Professionally restored and finished in show-quality Candyapple Red paint, it showcases a generous number of optional extras that allowed buyers to make Ford’s pony car all their own. Equipped with the C-code 289/200 HP V-8, a C4 3-speed automatic and power steering, it is accessorized with white-stripe tires on styled steel wheels, a luggage rack and an engine dress-up kit. Beneath the power-operated black soft top is a matching Pony bucket-seat interior with wood-grain steering wheel, a center console, Rally Pac instrumentation and a pushbutton radio.
F65 1937 Chevrolet Cabriolet Street Rod 7A82R1E0796920531 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Upgraded V-8 performance and handcrafted Street Rod luxury come together in this 1937 Chevrolet Cabriolet. The die-cast waterfall grille, torpedo headlight housings and sleek all-steel body by Fisher speak the visual language of 1937, while deep gloss black paint and subtle custom touches bring original Chevrolet open-top style into the present. The GB Master Cabriolet featured the same two- to four-passenger capacity and luggage space as the Master Deluxe sport coupe, unencumbered by the turret-top steel roof. The stock inline 6-cylinder stovebolt was upgraded with a professionally built 327 CI V-8 engine with genuine Chevrolet Tuned Port Injection. The TPI powerhouse is backed by a GM 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and proven robust Ford 9-inch rear axle. A polished aluminum intake manifold, valve covers and spark plug wire covers join chrome accessories under the hood. Power steering works with four-corner hydraulic drum brakes, which were a big selling point for Chevrolet in 1937, when Ford drivers were still holding on to white-knuckle mechanical setups. Stowing the tan convertible top unveils an updated tan interior that blends contemporary comfort and appointments with period-correct appearance. Authentic mohair upholstery on the foam-cushioned split front bench seat and door panels is a period-perfect upgrade. Retrofit air conditioning with blackout controls and dash vents delivers modern cabin cooling without compromising vintage looks. A stock banjo-type steering wheel sits on a tilt column, and a custom 1932 Pierce-Arrow instrument panel features new Stewart Warner Wings gauges. The Chevrolet cabriolet rolls on widened updates of the factory steel-spoke artillery-style wheels equipped with staggered aspect ratio radial tires for a traditional raked forward stance. Chrome beauty rings and Bowtie-logo hubcaps add a touch of well-dressed manners to V-8 Street Rod attitude.
F66 1962 Chevrolet Impala Custom Roadster 21847S180508 $55,000 $75,000 $41,800 -24% Blending both traditional and modern concepts is what has happened on this very special 1962 Impala, a car that actually began life as a factory two-door hardtop. The effort here was to create what could have been used on the auto show circuit back in the day, but with a “nod to the mod,” thanks to additional 21st-century changes. This Derek Samson custom roadster conversion features a 350 CI small-block Chevrolet engine topped with a Holley carburetor, polished intake, coated headers and upgraded front end accessories. The custom-fabricated engine bay is exquisitely blended with matched tones and streamlined component housings. The engine is backed by a TH350 transmission, leaving both driveline units easy to service and maintain. Built around all-steel construction, there were an estimated 4,000-plus hours associated with this car’s creation, with careful thought given to its execution. Themed as the “Emerald SS,” this included reforming the body, eliminating the door handles and removing excessive trim, leaving just a single chrome spear along the upper body edge. The suspension is equipped with Air Ride components that give the car the ability to go low when on display, with Billet Specialties wheels, low-profile rubber and 4-wheel disc brakes completing it. The roadster motif means the interior is always part of this car’s visual impact, and here it has been custom created from Ultraleather upholstery in minimalist fashion. There is a full-length console, four bucket-style seats, a singular gauge facing the driver, custom pedals and easy-to-reach hidden controls. This car actually has custom-designed glass work as well. The stunning Galapagos Green paint gives this car a sense of strength, with that color carrying over throughout the remainder of the build. A multiple-award winner, this custom 1962 Impala garnered a trio of Outstanding Engine, Outstanding Interior and Outstanding Detail awards at the 2006 Sacramento Autorama.
F67 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster 194676S118997 $90,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The “Barn Find” has become an integral part of the mythological realm that has formed around the collector car hobby. Indeed, the chase to make the next great discovery of a long-lost automotive treasure has spilled over into the popular culture in such media as the “Chasing Classic Cars” television show, and a Barn Find class was added to the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals held each year in Chicago, Illinois. Like a modern-day gold rush, this cultural phenomenon has led legions of enthusiasts to scour the fruited plain, hoping to lay claim to their own hard-won prize. Among them is the dedicated Corvette enthusiast who discovered this 1966 Sting Ray big-block convertible, which was literally stored in a barn since 1980. Produced on April 13, 1966, the car has now been completed after a comprehensive frame-off restoration to its present specification. The 1966 Corvette was the first to feature a 427 CI version of the famous Mark IV big-block V-8 engine. Chevrolet officially rated it at 425 HP at 5,600 RPM, but the L72 held a secret: in real-world use, its power kept climbing past those figures, reaching peak output at the 6,500 RPM redline, where it unofficially surpassed 450 HP. A period-correct L72 427/425 HP engine now powers this Sting Ray convertible in concert with a 4-speed manual transmission and a 4.11 Positraction rear end. Finished in handsome Silver Pearl paint with a black interior, it is offered with both the convertible top and auxiliary hardtop. The potent driveline is complemented with F41 heavy-duty suspension complete with the correct 1966-dated shock absorbers and includes the original rear leaf springs, radiator, hood, gauges and housing, and AM/FM radio. Tinted glass, finned-aluminum knock-off wheels and side exhaust complete this beautifully restored barn-find 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible.
F68 1968 Ford Bronco U15NLC84878 $60,000 $80,000 $63,800 Mid This immaculate 1968 Ford Bronco presents in factory-fresh condition after the completion of a comprehensive frame-off restoration. Conceived as an off-road vehicle targeted at the Jeep CJ-5, the International Harvester Scout and the Toyota Land Cruiser, the Bronco was one of the most successful Sport Utility Vehicles in the world for more than three decades, fulfilling a burgeoning new market segment hungry for the ruggedness of a true off-road vehicle that also provided civilized road manners and interior comfort away from backwoods duty. Introduced in 1965 as a 1966 model, the Bronco fulfilled those wishes, finding broad appeal with a wide spectrum of buyers. Simplicity and economy were the first Bronco’s central attributes. Flat sheet-metal surfaces, flat glass and simple C-section bumpers kept manufacturing costs low, and the drivetrain was fixed at a single inline-6 engine, column-shifted 3-speed manual and off-the-shelf final drive components; but, a wide choice of factory and dealer options, as well as a growing aftermarket, made it possible to answer practically every buyer’s wishes. Ford added the 289 CI small-block V-8 to the Bronco lineup in 1966, and, in 1967, the Sport Package option for the Bronco wagon. Signaled by red “FORD” lettering on the front grille, the Sport Package included chromed bumpers, exterior trim and wheel covers. The body-off-restored 1968 Bronco wagon offered here is a superb example that boasts new professionally applied, correct, two-tone Harbor Blue and Wimbledon White paint over excellent body work. The interior features fresh color-keyed woven vinyl interior upholstery, an optional back seat, padded dash, pushbutton radio and wind-out front windshield. The rebuilt 289 CI V-8 incorporates a mild performance cam, ceramic-coated manifolds and a chromed air cleaner, with cooling enhanced by a polished aluminum radiator. Riding on off-road tires wrapping optional 16-inch wheels, this outstanding first-generation Bronco is completed with a 3-speed manual transmission, chromed bumpers and dual rearview mirrors.
F69 1966 Chevrolet Nova L79 611637009809 $110,000.00 $120,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A As a simple order code, for most people L79 meant nothing, but to those with a passion for Chevrolet performance, that alpha-numeric string meant one of the hottest small-blocks available in the 1960s. The car offered here is the legendary RPO L79-equipped 1966 Chevrolet Nova, which immediately entered the status of legend during its short release on the market. Beyond being a matching-numbers example, this special car was also built for the Canadian market at the Oshawa, Ontario, assembly plant. It is documented with its original Protect-O-Plate, GM of Canada build sheet, order form, deposit receipt, installment receipt and service history. Sold new at Eastown Chevrolet in London, Ontario, this Nova is powered by the original matching-numbers 327/350 HP V-8 engine that had first been developed as part of the Corvette option list. With its correct aluminum intake manifold, large carburetor, chrome components that includes the exclusive 180-degree snorkel air cleaner and valve covers, the vehicle and engine combination became an instant hit on the street and was competitively raced in NHRA by Bill “Grumpy” Jenkins that year. Behind the L79 engine is the original M20 4-speed transmission. Featuring a superior restoration completed in March 2019, this Nova has rebuilt drivetrain components, plus new glass, exterior trim and bumpers. Inside is a bright red interior using hard-to-find NOS seat material, complete with factory floor shift and Delco AM radio with rear antenna. The outside has been refinished in the original Regal Red, while the arrow-straight body shows off outstanding fit and the trim level associated with this Nova package. A one-owner car for many decades, this car comes with documentation that includes a set of professional photographs (dated June 12, 1966) of the car with the original owner at a lake resort.
F70 1972 Porsche 911T Coupe 911 210 1723 $55,000 $75,000 $52,250 -5% Finished in the factory-correct and highly desirable Irish Green with a contrasting black interior, this 1972 Porsche 911T Coupe is generously optioned with factory air conditioning, the “S” appearance group, Fuchs alloy wheels, 5-speed manual gearbox, electric sunroof and an “S” front chin spoiler. The 1972 model year is regarded by many as an epic year for the 911. It is instantly recognizable by its one-year-only oil filler lid located on the right rear fender—done by Porsche to relocate the oil tank for the dry-sump lubrication system in a more forward location to optimize weight distribution. Although it proved to be a good engineering solution, irresponsible gas station attendants were known to mistakenly add gasoline instead. By 1972, Porsche had incorporated a plethora of engineering and design changes to the 911 that dramatically improved the driving dynamics and aesthetic appearance. The improvements included increasing the wheelbase by 2.2 inches to increase high-speed stability, the fitment of larger contact-patch wheels and tires to aid cornering grip, and the flaring of the front and rear fender arches to both allow wider tires and refine the overall appearance. For 1972, Porsche increased the displacement on the flat-6 horizontally opposed engine from 2.2L to 2.4L. This was achieved through a 4.4mm increase to the stroke and a 1mm increase to the bore. This had a beneficial impact to the low-end torque and maintained optimal performance in the face of ever stringent emission-control laws. The stance on this particular 911T coupe is superb, with it being set to a lowered European ride-height specification. The anodized-finish Fuchs wheels are complemented by the “S” appearance group and front chin spoiler to deliver the final visual impact and presence that this car deserves.
F71 1999 Ferrari F355 Super Serie Fiorano 115937 $90,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1999 Ferrari F355 Spider is No. 21 of 100 Serie Fiorano Spider editions produced that year for the U.S. market. Introduced at the 1999 Geneva Auto Show next to its 360 Modena successor, this final iteration brought a fitting close to the hugely successful 355 series of Ferraris that former Formula 1 World Champion Phil Hill called one of the 10 best of all time. While sharing almost every dimension with the 348 before it, the 355 represented a revolution at Ferrari. More than 1,800 hours of wind-tunnel testing was invested in its exterior design, which included a flat bottom with airflow channels to create maximum downforce. Its all-new longitudinally mounted 3.5L V-8 featured double overhead cams, titanium connecting rods, five valves per cylinder and sophisticated intake and exhaust systems, all of which combined to pump out 375 HP at 8,250 RPM. A new synchromesh F1 paddle-shifted gearbox and electronically controlled suspension contributed to performance that far surpasses the contemporary 512 Testarossa, prompting magazine road testers to universally agree with “Road & Track” magazine’s declaration that it was “the purest purebred yet from Ferrari’s Scuderia.” Heavily influenced by the famed 1995 Competizione, the Serie Fiorano used that car’s race-tailored suspension featuring firmer calibrations in the springs and electronically controlled shock absorbers, TRW power steering, a larger-diameter sway bar, cross-drilled and slotted brake rotors, red-painted calipers with racing brake pads, Challenge rear grilles and enameled Scuderia Ferrari fender shields. Exclusive interior features included carbon fiber shifter paddles and trim pieces, an Alcantara-covered steering wheel and a numbered, silver dash plaque. This limited-production Serie Fiorano Spider has been exceptionally well cared for, having been driven just 26,551 miles since new. It features the classic pairing of black paint with a tan leather interior and electronically retracting black top. The car is equipped with power windows, air conditioning, a CD stereo system and 5-spoke aluminum wheels with Pirelli P-Zero radial tires.
F72 1941 Ford Custom 18-599820141 $60,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Few names in the customization realm hold the allure of Gene Winfield. His understated and humble personality, exquisite work, interest in working with young people to help them build their dreams and a lengthy roster of private and Hollywood commissions have earned him a reputation few can match. When Los Angeles Lakers player and NBA Hall of Famer Jerry West decided it was time for a unique custom, he turned to Winfield for the right formula. Winfield took this 1941 Ford and gave it a stem-to-stern makeover, turning it into a docile, quick, fun and stunning custom that turns heads. The custom bodywork is extensive but reasonably subtle, various points more obvious than others, such as shaved door handles, modified grille work, headlights and more. Inside, custom upholstery adorns the door panels and seats, and a tilt steering column has a matching four-spoke wheel perched at the top upholstered in the same color material as the rest of the car. Under the hood is a Chevrolet 350 CI V-8 engine with a Turbo 350 automatic transmission, lending it plenty of punch and an infinite ability to cruise any road with ease. The engine also has a cover over it that matches the black paint that the rest of the body is coated with, which lends the scene under the hood a very clean, uncluttered, modern look. Riding on an air-bag suspension, the car sits low to the ground, yet it can easily be raised to negotiate driveways or uneven surfaces. Complete with power brakes and power steering, the Ford also comes with a removable hardtop. Boasting ownership provenance of an NBA Hall of Famer, Jerry West, this 1941 Ford is one of very few customs to experience the magical handiwork of Gene Winfield.
F74 1957 BMW Isetta 300 505025 $40,000 $60,000 $33,000 -18% Whenever automobile enthusiasts think microcar, chances are the unforgettable BMW Isetta is the first to come up for discussion. Certain to gather attention and attract scores of smiling admirers wherever one appears, the Isetta was initially conceived in Italy by successful industrialist Renzo Rivolta, who earned his fortune producing the successful Isothermos line of refrigeration equipment. Tiny, economical and easy to enter and exit with a large swing-open door up front, the Isetta was perfectly suited to narrow urban streets and helped mobilize postwar Italy during the 1950s. It was soon built under license by BMW in Germany, where it also enjoyed wide use carrying mail for the Bundespost. Isettas were also exported to North America, where their diminutive proportions and cheeky presence drew national media attention on a number of popular TV variety shows. Two BMW-built versions of these deceptively simple vehicles were produced between 1955 and 1962: firstly the Isetta 250 with a 247cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine (1955-62), soon joined by the slightly more-powerful Isetta 300 with a 298cc engine (1956-62), represented by the example offered here. Despite its unconventional design, the Isetta was an important BMW model with 74,312 examples of the Isetta 250 and 87,416 of the Isetta 300 built. Today, the surviving examples enjoy strong collector demand. Benefiting from a comprehensive restoration, this 1957 BMW Isetta 300 features eye-catching two-tone orange and white paint, gray interior upholstery, a sliding soft sunroof and painted steel wheels. Delivering 13 to 15 HP—depending on the source quoted—at 5,000 to 5,200 RPM, it is theoretically capable of reaching about 53 MPH in concert with a 4-speed manual transmission (plus reverse) driving a motorcycle-style rear swingarm system. Utterly charming and handsomely presented, this 1957 BMW Isetta 300 is tangible proof that necessity is indeed the mother of invention.
F75 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Pace Car Edition 124679N636982 $75,000 $90,000 $66,000 -12% It’s hard to believe it’s been 50 years since Mario Andretti notched his only victory at the Indianapolis 500, a race where the 33 entrants were led to the green by a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Convertible. The 1969 race marked the second time the Camaro paced the starting field at Indianapolis, with the newly introduced Camaro given the nod from Indianapolis Motor Speedway officials back in 1967. Nonetheless, it was the 1969 Pace Car Edition that’s unquestionably the most immediately recognizable and fondly remembered of all the Camaros that have paced The Greatest Spectacle in Racing. This example typifies a pace-car-optioned Camaro convertible from the year that Andretti drove his Day Glo Red STP Brawner Hawk to a long-awaited victory for car owner Andy Granatelli. This RS/SS is finished in the correct shade of Dover White with Hugger Orange accents. Power is furnished by Chevrolet’s L48 350 CI small-block V-8 rated at a stout 300 HP, and it’s mated to an automatic transmission with the desirable horseshoe-shaped console shift. The interior’s highlight is the correct black houndstooth trim over Hugger Orange vinyl seat facings. Optioning includes functional cowl induction and a power-operated convertible top. Front and rear spoilers are also part of the package, as are Rally wheels shod with Firestone Wide Oval tires. A chambered exhaust system enhances the driving experience by assuring a properly throaty song from the muscular small-block. This car has the correct Z11 factory-coding cowl trim tag, the coding for Pace Car Editions built at General Motors’ huge Norwood Assembly facility in Ohio, designating that the trim level is correct for this convertible. Its documentation is buttressed by a National Corvette Restorers Society Shipping Data Report, which designates the dealer code and shipping zone encoding, allowing a window into the Camaro Pace Car Edition’s earliest days of existence, long before its restoration took place.
F76 1958 Cadillac Series 62 Cabriolet 58F080255 $75,000.00 $90,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Previously owned by a Hall of Fame MLB pitcher, this 1958 Cadillac is one of only 7,825 produced in 1958. The Cadillac’s 364 CI V-8 engine uses hydraulic lifters and a Rochester 4-barrel downdraft carburetor to produce a healthy 310 HP and 405 lb-ft of torque, which is transferred through a Hydra-Matic transmission on its way to the pavement. The Cadillac pampers drivers and passengers alike with power steering, power brakes, power windows, a power convertible top, plush seats and a pushbutton AM radio with a rear speaker among other amenities. Presented in black with a two-tone red and white interior, the split-bench seat makes rear-seat ingress and egress an easy task. Rolling on wide whitewall tires with steel wheels covered with full-size wheel covers, this particular Cadillac hails from a model year that ushered in arguably one of the most dazzling designs adorned by the Wreath and Crest. The first-year quad-headlight front end, massive combined bumper and grille with an elegant cleat design, and growing tail fins marked many things to come. Interestingly, this particular generation, the fifth for Series 62, was only in production for 1957 and ’58, and it has long been seen as one of the most flamboyant in Cadillac history. The extensive use of chrome and brightwork, opulent body sculpting and low stance all conspire to create the image of a car unlike any other. The low stance was achieved thanks to the new-for-1957 X-member frame design that eliminated the side rails and allowed the body to sit lower around the frame without sacrificing interior space. Priced around $5,500, the Series 62 convertible was not for the financially faint of heart, but it can be argued that it was a bit of a bargain when all of the standard features they were delivered with are taken into consideration. And, as it may have shared the floor with the iconic Eldorado Brougham, costing more than $13,000, maybe the Series 62 really was a bargain.
F79 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 BN4 Roadster BN4L040672 $50,000.00 $60,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The blueprint for what became the Austin-Healey 100 was formed on a trip to America; as Donald Healey later recalled, “I wanted to produce a very fast everyday road car with genuine sporting characteristics, capable of 100 MPH.” Affordability and economic maintenance were also part of the brief, and today, those same virtues are equally appealing. From 1953 to 1968, more than 90% of the 70,000 produced went to the U.S., yet the rugged Austin-Healey was still the quintessence of a very British sports car, acquitting itself with distinction on the car-breaking international rallies of the day and equally rewarding for fast-paced touring. Somewhat raw and spartan in its initial 4-cylinder form, the 6-cylinder 100-6 BN4 of 1956 added welcome refinement. The wheelbase was lengthened by 2 inches to allow for occasional rear seats, weatherproofing was much improved with a fixed laminated windshield and better sealed side curtains, and the comfort of the cabin was improved, with a padded dash among the enhancements. On the exterior were lockable door handles, and the styling was also tidied up with a larger oval grille and air scoop on the hood. The new, more powerful 6-cylinder Austin 2639cc engine with new gearbox delivered 104 MPH and 0-60 MPH in 10.5 seconds, and it was also more flexible and smoother, with better low-down torque. This 1957 example features the welcome optional Laycock overdrive on third and fourth gears for relaxed high-speed touring. An unusual feature is the rare cigarette lighter. The overall appearance is pleasingly standard with painted wire wheels and a proper plastic-rimmed banjo-strung steering wheel, rather than cliché wood aftermarket affair. Among the many highlights for the 100-6 was the time standard-bodied cars took the Manufacturers Team Prize at Sebring in 1958, as well as an epic 10,000-mile four-day record run averaging 97 MPH at Montlhéry, France. Those very same virtues that Donald Healey espoused all those years ago apply just as much today, for the brawny Healey delivers real performance in a no-nonsense package that is easier to own than many rivals.
F80 1955 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster VE55S001480 $90,000 $120,000 $104,500 Mid This car is one of just 700 Corvettes produced in 1955 and one of only 15 painted in Corvette Copper. It has been historically noted that the advent of the Ford Thunderbird was a primary reason that Chevrolet did not give up on the two-seat design entirely and turned to two corporate talents for the changes beneath the surface. Research Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov’s continual efforts with the vehicle balanced out the suspension design and aided other aspects, while Chief Engineer Ed Cole spearheaded the release of the new, lightweight Chevrolet 265 CI small-block V-8 engine. Weighing much less than the previous 6-cylinder and capable of 6,000 RPM, this 195 HP engine used a 4-barrel carburetor, special valvetrain and bottom-end pieces, and chrome valve covers and air cleaner to give the Corvette not only added beauty, but also a better front-to-rear weight balance. On this car, the Powerglide automatic transmission was optioned in, and 1955 was also the first year for the Delco-Remy 12-volt generator and associated electrical upgrades like electric windshield wipers. Inside is a matched beige interior that features a Wonderbar AM radio, heat and defrost, floor shift, functional dial-readout gauges and tachometer. The body lines retained their original flair for one last season, accented with light chrome, rear-valance-exit exhaust, the trademark grille configuration, screened headlamps, full-size spinner covers on steel wheels, and a set of Firestone gum-dipped bias-ply wide whitewall tires. Built in July 1955, this roadster features the metallic Corvette Copper paint that was the rarest color offered that year. Presented here as one of the most evolutionary engineering seasons for the first-generation Corvette design, this rarely available combination is truly stunning in its visual appeal and is sure to be cherished by its next owner.
F81 1956 Ford Thunderbird P6FH287762 $75,000 $100,000 $61,600 -18% Few movies resonate nostalgia for car guys like “American Graffiti.” A memorable scene, of course, was watching the mysterious blonde in the T-Bird (Suzanne Somers) making eyes at Curt (Richard Dreyfuss) and driving him positively bananas. She’s his goddess and, as he puts it, “Someone roaming the streets wants me!” Documented with a framed letter of thanks from Universal Studios addressed to its second owner, this is the Thunderbird Suzanne Somers drove in “American Graffiti.” The T-Bird remained in the care of its second owner from 1964-2014, and it’s powered by a 312 CI V-8 engine with a Holley 4-barrel carburetor mated to an automatic transmission. The sun visor has even been signed by George Lucas and several “American Graffiti” cast members. Somers lived in Sausalito, California, when her agent called her and told her to get over the bridge into San Francisco and meet with the casting directors looking for a “Blonde in a T-Bird.” Somers didn’t have enough money to pay the toll to cross the bridge, so she left a lipstick as collateral and said that the arrangement became the standard way she’d usually pay to cross the bridge as time went by. She nearly left the casting call because there were so many gorgeous blonde ladies waiting to be seen—she thought she would never have a chance. Having parked illegally, she was certain she’d get a ticket and told the lady at the desk, thank you, but she was going to leave—the desk lady informed Somers that George Lucas really liked her picture and asked her to wait just a bit, going in to Lucas’ office to see if he could meet Somers sooner than later. He did and asked one question: “Can you drive?” Somers said yes, and that was the meeting. By the time she got home, her agent called and told her she’d gotten the part. In addition to the aforementioned letter from Universal Studios, this iconic baby bird is offered with multiple magazines, books, scale models and autographed photos.
F83 1940 Chevrolet 1/2 ton Pickup LAQ223876 $40,000 $60,000 N/R $35,750 -11% Excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail characterize this beautiful 1940 Chevrolet half-ton pickup after a professional frame-off nut-and-bolt restoration. The success of the Chevrolet pickups of this era can be traced back to 1929. Despite Ford’s production lines running at full steam producing the recently introduced Model A, Chevrolet was maintaining its leadership in the market. Ever mindful of the threat posed by the mercurial Henry Ford, Chevrolet Division President William Knudsen had determined that a gap existed between the Chevrolet and Oldsmobile model ranges, prompting General Motors President Alfred P. Sloan to call for a new car with “a Chevrolet chassis with a six-cylinder engine.” An intense research and development program eventuated in the birth of the Pontiac, but the experience gained by Chevrolet Engineering bore fruit when, during a board meeting to discuss continuing production of the Chevrolet inline-4, Knudsen suddenly stood up, announced, “Gentlemen, we have a six,” and walked out the door. Initially nicknamed the “Cast-Iron Wonder,” the new engine broke from tradition by using overhead valves, a feature Chevrolet marketing executive Richard Grant had insisted upon. Advertised as “A Six For The Price Of A Four,” GM’s first mass-produced inline-6 was introduced in 1929 on Chevrolet cars and trucks. Displacing 194 CI and rated at 49 HP, it was the smoothest-running engine in its price range, an asset that would feature prominently in Chevrolet advertising for years into the future and prove especially attractive to truck-buying customers. The 235 CI powering this 1940 Chevrolet Pickup is a practical upgrade from the original 216 CI version, here coupled to a 3-speed manual transmission. Brightly dressed in two-tone red and black paint, its running gear was powder coated during the restoration. Upgraded with a new clutch, brakes, bearings, seals, bed wood, upholstery and gauges, this comprehensively restored Chevrolet comes with a shop manual, windshield arms and wipers, car cover, pictures and receipts.
F84 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 Convertible 136670L195340 $350,000.00 $450,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Possessed of monumental power and muscular styling to match, the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454 LS6 is firmly established as one of the most iconic and desirable machines of the classic muscle car era. Well known in the collector car hobby as the “Fuller car,” this unrestored Triple Black 1970 SS454 LS6 convertible ranks as the premier example, having served as a reference for LS6 convertible judging and restoration guidelines since the 1980s. The LS6 Chevelle was Chevrolet’s knockout punch to the competition after years of playing bridesmaid to contenders packing dozens more cubic inches. Ironically, it was the looming spectre of government-mandated and power-robbing emission controls that led GM’s management to cancel its limitations on displacement with the goal of maintaining higher power output. To that end, Chevrolet engineers increased the 427 Mark IV’s stroke from 3.76 inches to a full 4 inches to push displacement to 454 while maintaining dependability. Aside from the longer stroke, the high-performance Mark IV remained essentially unchanged, but the LS6’s factory rating of 450 HP at 5,600 RPM was the highest output of any production engine to that time, and it generated an incredible 500 lb-ft of torque at just 3,600 RPM, prompting “Hot Rod” magazine’s editors to declare in their May 1970 road test, “The past is gone. The future may never see a car like this. It is one of the brutes, and all it needs is a way of staying in contact with terra firma.” The Fuller LS6 Chevelle convertible is unquestionably the preeminent example of this epochal muscle machine. Still finished in the original Tuxedo Black paint, black top and black interior, the car is immediately identifiable by the absence of contrasting sport striping that is usually a signature feature. Every other element is present, however, and its history is well documented. A four-owner treasure with just 10,222 original miles, it was purchased new by Bob Fuller of Clinton, Iowa, from Clinton Chevrolet dealership McEleney Motors as one half of a two-car deal that included a brand-new Cranberry Red LS6 Chevelle hardtop (now restored and in a private collection). Fuller pampered the convertible for more than 30 years, his only deviation from maintaining originality being an AM radio/8-track tape player, power steering and the “450 H/P” callout on the rear bumper insert, all added soon after he took delivery. As one would expect with such a carefully preserved car, in this case driven for its first year and then put away, the engine bay is so clean and original that the cast iron exhaust manifolds and other raw cast surfaces show almost zero change from factory fresh. The rest of this gem is in the same marvelous condition, the main reason it is widely held in such high regard as the reference for the truest possible restorations. Another important reason is its extensive option list. Building on such standard SS features as F41 suspension, power brakes with front discs, and a padded SS dash with specific gauges, Fuller chose the M40 400 Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission, a 4.10 rear end, power steering, cowl induction, Strato bucket seats with console, power windows and top, remote driver’s mirror and tilt steering wheel. Other interior options include a tinted windshield, U46 lamp monitoring system, fiber optics and auxiliary lighting, door edge guards and a rear defogger. Fuller’s dedication to preserving this extraordinary LS6 convertible were rewarded with a 1987 feature article in “Muscle Car Review” magazine; it subsequently won Best Unrestored Chevelle at the 1988 Super Chevy Show in Indianapolis, Best in Class at the 1989 Muscle Car Nationals in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and Chevy VetteFest Spinner Concours honors in 1990. Fuller sold the car to Gary Esse of Madison, Wisconsin, in 2001. Noted collector Dave Christenholz then purchased it in 2003, and it was sold to a private collector in 2008. Of course, a truly great example of any collectible automobile is well documented; in the case of the Fuller Chevelle, that includes the original Protect-O-Plate, punch card, laminated window sticker, dealer invoice, owner’s manual and a copy of the build sheet, all part of the car that has earned its status as the standard by which all LS6s are restored and judged.
F85 1969 Pontiac GTO Ram Air IV Convertible 242679B169050 $160,000.00 $180,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A There are numerous reasons to recommend this eye-catching 1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible to the discerning enthusiast. The attraction begins with its special-order color combination of Carousel Red paint and Parchment interior that virtually shouts 1969. However, there is even more to love under the twin-scooped hood, wherein lurks what has been described as “probably the finest, best-balanced all-around street performance engine ever built”: the Ram Air IV V-8. That depiction by the late Pontiac GTO guru Paul Zazarine put the Ram Air IV powerplant in its proper context as the best of a generation of outstanding engines that powered almost a decade of Pontiac muscle machines. The Ram Air IV was not for the faint of heart; conservatively rated at 370 HP and 445 lb-ft of torque, and based on a 4-bolt main version of Pontiac’s versatile full-size passenger-car engine, the Ram Air IV employed new heads with large round ports and redesigned combustion chambers, swirl-polished valves and an aluminum intake manifold. Surprisingly, only 14 of the 1969 GTO convertibles were produced with the Ram Air IV in concert with a 3-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission, making examples such as this very rare today. Combining an SR-suffix warranty replacement block with a 400 Turbo automatic and 3.90 Positraction rear end, this unique GTO convertible was treated to a sympathetic mechanical sorting performed by Muscle Car Restorations, Inc., in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, which flushed the fuel system, cleaned and rebuilt the Rochester Quadrajet 4-barrel carburetor and replaced all fluids. This car is nicely appointed with power steering and front disc brakes, bucket seats and a console, power windows, an antenna, Rallye gauges, rare factory shoulder harnesses, hideaway headlights, a hood tachometer and Rallye II wheels with redline tires. This Ram Air IV GTO convertible is offered with PHS documentation, trade-in dealer invoice, title search with ownership history until 1986, and the Protect-O-Plate.
F86 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 SFM5S148 $175,000 $200,000 $121,000 -31% In retrospect, the 1965 Shelby GT350 was a purist car built for serious people. After all, Carroll Shelby had established his name as a competition driver and parlayed that into the AC Cobra sports car construction program. The runaway success of the new Ford Mustang logically led to a domestically created alternative to the smaller roadster, and Shelby applied his name and talent to making these cars live up to his established reputation. An early production rear-battery car, SFM5S148 went from Shelby’s facility to another storied name in Ford history: the Tasca Ford Sales, Inc. dealership in East Providence, Rhode Island. With the history noted in the Shelby Registry, this beautiful car was restored to correct period specifications in 1992 by renowned restorer Hank Fournier, showcasing the engineering effort that put these cars into the record books. At the time of restoration, Fournier opted to replace the body rather than cut and weld new panels in patch-quilt fashion. Beneath the scooped hood with chrome hold-down pins is the Ford HiPo 289/306 HP V-8 engine with its Holley 715 CFM 4-barrel carburetor, cast Shelby valve covers, Tri-Y headers and side exhaust. A BorgWarner 4-speed manual transmission and 9-inch differential with 3.89 gears and Detroit Locker complete the driveline, while traction bars and Koni adjustable shocks are also on this car. Front disc brakes enabled solid handling, and the body remains covered in Wimbledon White with blue competition striping. Inside, one finds the wood-rimmed steering wheel, a fire extinguisher and an 8,000 RPM tachometer, and the dash was autographed by Shelby himself. GT350 rocker stripes were part of its near-instant identification, and this car rides on mag wheels and updated BF Goodrich radial tires. Accompanied with an owner’s manual, SFM5S148 also has a current UK V5 registration with European taxes paid, granting it eligibility for a litany of vintage racing venues worldwide. Add in the Tasca connection, and the car offered here is a quite desirable opportunity at Shelby ownership.
F87 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda BS23R0B184339 $250,000.00 $275,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Options for horsepower were part of many car offerings during the heyday of 1960s-‘70s performance, but the Chrysler Hemi stood alone in many respects, especially when properly packaged into the 1970 E-body Cuda. This sporty first-year Plymouth still retains its matching-numbers 426/425 HP Hemi engine, with verification as to its factory origins via an original broadcast sheet, a Chrysler Registry certificate and a 25-page visual inspection report. The Hemi Cuda was one of the most important releases in the years that the NASCAR-bred engine was offered for street use, with a body design that met wide acclaim in the media and gained a notoriety that has carried down through the current marketplace for collectible American-built muscle cars. Sold new at Chase Chrysler Plymouth in Stockton, California, this real Hemi Cuda has been the subject of a rotisserie restoration, leaving it in a visual condition that is stunning in its color balance and appeal. Of course, the first thing noticed is the argent-toned Shaker fresh air hood, quivering at idle when the car is started. This example came with the TorqueFlite automatic transmission and a 3.23 Sure Grip differential for pleasurable all-around driving. The exterior is correct Tor-Red with black hockey-stripe graphics and matching black vinyl roof and interior upholstery. Inside are high-back vinyl bucket seats, the Rallye instrument cluster, center console with Slap-Stik ball-knob shifter and wood-grain trim accents. Matching the Shaker are argent rocker moldings, hood pins, wheel-well trim and 15-inch Rallye wheels wearing correct Goodyear Polyglas GT tires. The Space Saver spare and jack are in the trunk. With one of the most recognizable body shapes ever created, its factory Tor-Red and black color combination, the legendary Hemi engine and well-detailed optional equipment, this is the sort of Hemi car that many buyers dreamed of purchasing back in the day. That opportunity is still a possibility with this finely refinished and documented Hemi Cuda.
F88 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T Cabriolet JS27V0B100021 $550,000.00 $700,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The Six Pack engine was just six months old at the time this car was built; prior to 1970 releases, it had only been available in a run of special Super Bees in the spring of 1969. These engines made use of the three Holley 2-barrel carburetors as well as some internal component upgrades. Easier to keep in tune than the 426 Hemi, many buyers found the package extremely adequate in all driving situations. This car is a stunning example regardless of its production date. Painted FE5 Bright Red with a color-matched white top, premium white vinyl interior and white longitudinal striping, it is a stellar example at first glance. That impression continues with the option list. Behind the matching-numbers 440 Six Pack engine went the A33 Track Pak to put the A833 4-speed, bulletproof 3.54 Dana 60 Sure Grip differential and performance cooling system upgrades onto this car. It also received a power convertible top, power steering, power front disc brakes and chrome 5-spoke wheels with Goodyear Polyglas tires. The interior matches its driveline appeal—a six-way driver’s-side bucket seat, premium vinyl upholstery, woodgrain-type center console, Hurst Pistol Grip shifter, power windows, A01 light group, matched driver’s-side and passenger-side chromed mirrors, tinted glass, AM/FM stereo and Rallye dash with tachometer. Beyond the superb FE5 Bright Red paint (coded specifically on the fender tag as Y91 – Show Car finish) are hood pins, chrome tips, a luggage rack, performance hood, 440 Six Pack callouts, R/T-notated stripe and flip-open gas filler cap. Presented today as it left the factory, Restorations by Julius in Chatsworth, California, refreshed this car to outstanding condition. One of the foremost Mopar restoration specialists in the country, Julius Steuer has more than 40 years of experience restoring and refurbishing E-bodies, and the quality of his work is evident in this 440 Six Pack convertible Pilot Car.
F89 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible BS27V0B100004 $550,000.00 $700,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The Barracuda went upscale in 1970 when the new E-body models showed up. Sister to the Dodge Challenger, both types of vehicles were built at the Hamtramck assembly plant. As VIN sequence 100004 shows, this unique Plymouth pilot car was job No. 8 and one of the first-ever to bear the Cuda name. That it is the first such convertible created with the V-Code 440 Six Pack engine under the hood makes it even more impressive. The Cuda, which was marketed as a standalone version of the Barracuda, was Plymouth’s showcase entry into the dynamic muscle-car marketplace that existed at the start of the 1970 model run. Sporting several options that had not been available prior to this release, most impressive on the outside was the new Shaker coming up right off of the engine through a wide hood opening. Stylists had aggressively sculpted the body, and this iconic hood scoop blended right into that design. Beneath it, the recently developed 3×2 Holley carburetor layout boosted the power of the 440 Super Commando to 390 HP. For many buyers, this was a less expensive but almost-as-powerful street alternative to the Hemi. Still, the cost of these options pushed Cuda convertibles out of the price range of many buyers back in the day, and huge insurance increases that went into effect starting that year dissuaded others. By the end of 1970, there had only been 17 440 Six Pack 4-speed Cuda convertibles built; 16 of them were built sometime after this one came off the line on Saturday, August 1, 1969. Pilot cars are unique, often having certain features and components production vehicles did not. For instance, the Dutchman panel between the rear window and decklid is not the standard part and is slightly smaller than the production piece. Code-V68, to delete the side stripes, was also not used once production began, and two other codes on the tag were stamped erroneously. Still, this particular car is quite singular in its appearance, and it is quite possible it was specifically created to test appearance and option combinations on the new model. Painted in EW1 Alpine White, in addition to the stripe delete, it also received a power-operated black convertible top, a stunning contrast when combined with the blackout tail panel, inset grille and subdued use of chrome and color. The Rallye wheels use F70-14 tires to touch the pavement, and other exterior options include road lamps and a driver’s-side remote outside racing mirror. Chrome exhaust tips emerging from the rear valence complete the look. The inside of this car is also unique, due to the upscale options that were placed on BS27V0B100004. This included PRX9 premium-grade leather seats, P31 power windows and the aforementioned P37 power top. It had power steering and power front disc brakes as well. The car further benefited from the deluxe R22 AM/8-track stereo system. Of course, the crowning touch for 1970 muscle car fans was the new Hurst Pistol Grip, which beautifully matches the wood-grain steering wheel. The Pistol Grip was standard on 4-speed models that year, and this one is backed up by a Dana 60 differential. The Cuda also has performance cooling equipment like the 26-inch radiator. Again, due to the very early nature of this car, the Track Pak is not coded on the fender plate but has been documented as correct for this vehicle. There are only two white 440 Six Pack 4-speeds known to have been built. Restored in 2005, this color combination understated the extreme performance aspect of this vehicle. Perhaps that allowed it to be used by someone of executive-level taste who appreciated the possibility of very rapid travel. The mileage on the odometer reads 8,835. This is a wonderful opportunity to own a historic, rare and, most importantly, first-ever example of one of Plymouth’s most-desirable vehicles.
F89.1 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback 67410F2A00410 $170,000 $190,000 $143,000 -16% Showing just 24,000 miles, this Nightmist Blue 1967 Shelby GT500 has been owned and cared for by the same collector family since the 1990s. The fastback recently completed a concours rotisserie restoration using the original sheet metal, fiberglass and glass, matching-numbers dual-quad 428 CI Police Interceptor big-block and Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, proper paint daubs, and undercarriage finished in the correct red-oxide primer with overspray. During the process, the engine was rebuilt, balanced and blueprinted, the original Holley 600 CFM 4-barrel carburetors were restored to proper working order and appearance, and the factory Magstar wheels were refinished and wrapped in E70x15 Goodyear white-letter tires. Importantly, the Shelby tag and VIN stampings are present on the inner aprons. One of only 118 GT500s produced in Nightmist Blue with an automatic transmission, Shelby No. 00410 was completed at Shelby American’s Los Angeles airport facility with the popular Lemans over-the-top stripes and inboard high-beam headlights. Like all 1967 GT500s, the Shelby was converted from a big-block Mustang fastback to high-performance Shelby with a fiberglass hood and spoilered trunk lid, grille-mounted high-beam headlights, upper and lower side scoops, and distinctive sequential tail lights. Mandatory options included power steering and brakes, a tachometer, a fold-down rear seat and a Deluxe interior, which was updated to Shelby specs with an underdash pod with twin Stewart-Warner gauges, wood-rim steering wheel and roll bar with shoulder harnesses. Shelby American produced only 2,044 GT500s for 1967. According to its listing in the official Shelby Registry, this GT500 was shipped new to Brondes Motor Sales in Toledo, Ohio, and sold to original owner Ron Ellison on March 31, 1967. The low-mileage 1967 Shelby comes with an Elite Marti Report, delivery checklist, owner’s manual and original keys.
F90 1995 Ferrari F355 Spider 103634 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A After years of dwindling sales, Ferrari was on the ropes by the early ‘90s and badly in need of something to reawaken its clientele to the magic Maranello’s management believed was still a presence in the halls of Montezemolo. The superb 1992 Ferrari 456 GT reignited the passions of V-12 GT aficionados, but it was the subsequent F355 that brought true sports car enthusiasts back to the Prancing Horse fold. The F355’s resemblance to its 348 predecessor did not go unnoticed, but it was in fact a completely new car beneath its skin, one with performance that surpassed every metric of the 348 by impressive margins. Since 1947, every Ferrari has been first defined by its engine, a fact that remains in the F355. Like the 348, its 3.5L V-8 is packaged longitudinally in front of a transverse gearbox, but it was a completely redesigned powerplant, with titanium connecting rods, five-valve heads and Bosch Motronic fuel injection leading the list of special features. The resulting 375 HP fills out at a breathtaking 8,250 RPM with a soul-stirring shriek that has characterized Ferrari V-8s since the very beginning. Pininfarina and Ferrari aerodynamicists teamed up for the F355’s sleek body, placing equal emphasis on reducing drag and maximizing downforce. The Formula 1-inspired flat carbon fiber undertray and integrated rear diffuser combine to generate 220 pounds of downforce at the car’s 175 MPH top speed, contributing to the capabilities of all-independent wishbone suspension, computer-controlled damping, massive vented disc brakes and Pirelli P-Zero tires on alloy 5-spoke wheels. This 1995 F355 Spider builds on that Prancing Horse performance with beautiful rare Blu Swaters Metallic paint and tan leather upholstery—the same colors Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo chose for his personal ride back in the day—with a power-operated black soft top. Equipped with a gated 6-speed manual transmission, power windows and locks, air conditioning and a Sony CD sound system, this F355 Spider has been driven 5,276 miles since new.
F91 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190SL A1210426500203 $125,000 $150,000 $103,400 -17% This 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Convertible is an older restoration that remains in outstanding condition. Commenced in 1992 and completed in 1997 using mostly factory parts, the car’s renewal also included an upgrade from the stock twin Solex carburetors to higher-volume Weber units that add more horsepower and are factory-endorsed replacements. Introduced in conjunction with the exotic 300SL, the 190SL was a significant entry in Mercedes-Benz’ model range that afforded buyers the pleasure of sharing the 300SL’s cachet while avoiding its exorbitant price tag. While the 190SL’s wheelbase was identical to that of the 300SL, with its track even wider, and its styling was remarkably similar, the 190SL was based on the unibody structure of the 180 sedan series, a robust platform that maximized the benefits of all-independent suspension. A direct adaptation of the 300SL’s inline-6, the 190SL’s 1.9L 4-cylinder engine was rated at a respectable 110 HP in factory tune and mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. While the hood, windshield and bumpers could be removed and the doors replaced with cut-down aluminum pieces for competition, the 190SL was in fact a grand tourer rather than an out-and-out sports car, and its intentional similarity to the 300SL certainly contributed to its success. Rebuilt as part of the restoration, this pristine 190SL’s engine was given a .010 overbore with new pistons, rods, rings and bearing inserts. In addition to an overhauled starter and new generator and regulator, it has a new front end with factory shocks, new tires and new factory brakes and power booster. The transmission and radiator have been serviced, the rear end was resealed, and all instruments were checked or repaired. Previously a part of the Charlie Thomas Collection, the car is sharply finished in factory white with a new factory soft top and matching hardtop. This early production 190SL also boasts a new Navy interior, new glass and windshield, and new or replaced chrome trim.

F92 1930 Auburn 8-125A Deluxe Sedan 1254 $50,000 $75,000 N/R $30,800 -38% By the time 30-year-old Errett Lobban Cord was appointed general manager in 1924, the Auburn Automobile Company had been in business for 24 years, having evolved out of the Eckhart Carriage Company founded in 1874. Rather than a thriving manufacturer, however, Auburn was teetering on bankruptcy, saddled by an unsold inventory of some 700 cars. The dynamic Cord changed all that, first by sprucing up the unsold cars with fresh paint, some nickel plating and a few minor upgrades, and then by netting a half million dollars when he was done. He quickly associated the Auburn brand in the public mind with style and spirit, qualities embodied in all-new roadster and touring models, the latter exemplified in this 1930 Auburn 8-125A Deluxe Sedan. Once owned by Hollywood film star George Raft and later prominently displayed at Richard and Linda Kughn’s Carail Museum in Detroit, the 8-125A was a development of the highly successful 8-115, its 268 CI Lycoming Straight-8 L-head engine equipped with a Stromberg downdraft carburetor and delivering 125 HP through a 3-speed manual transmission. The Auburn’s race-proven chassis featured a 130-inch wheelbase, Lockheed hydraulic brakes, Lovejoy shock absorbers and Bijur lubrication. Crowning this robust platform was handsome coachwork featuring Auburn’s distinctive beltline that flowed gently down from the radiator mascot to form a continuous band beneath the window openings. This unique styling element facilitated multiple-color paint schemes, in this case combining Navy Blue with light blue and yellow accents, complemented with yellow wire wheels wearing wide whitewall tires. A museum-quality restoration, this 8-125A Deluxe Sedan features opulent accommodations highlighted by deeply pleated gray broadcloth upholstery and two-tone burlwood-pattern trim. Typical of Cord-era Auburn cars, this example is amply accessorized with a windshield sun visor, rare dual side-mount wide whitewall spare tires on matching yellow wire wheels, spare-mounted rearview mirrors, cowl lamps, wind wings and a folding rear luggage rack, all enhancing the presentation of this classic-era Auburn.
F93 1934 Ford Deluxe Street Rod 1D12070COLO $80,000 $110,000 N/R $56,100 -30% Great Ford Street Rods come in countless configurations, each one an expression of its builder’s vision; but as time passes, fewer possess the one feature that contributes to making this 1934 Deluxe 5-window rumble-seat coupe a purist’s delight: an original, uncut steel body. In fact, it maintains a number of original features that can disappear as the decades pass, items such as the door handles, window cranks, the original clock in the rearview mirror and the original dash with windshield crank-out handle. Even the bumpers and hood ornament, roll-down rear window and functional cowl vent remain. The transformation to personalized Street Rod, however, is full-blown, beginning with its Ford Racing 302 CI performance crate engine, complete with Ford high-performance hydraulic roller cam and GT40 aluminum heads, and Sanderson headers. Inhaling through a custom progressive-link triple Rochester 2-barrel setup and tri-power intake by Automotion of Great Falls, Montana, it cranks 345 HP through a C4 transmission to a limited-slip Ford 9-inch rear end with 3.73 gearing. To make full use of the 302’s hefty output, this sharp little ’34 features a Kugel independent front suspension with tubular upper and lower A-arms, coilover shock absorbers and power steering, multi-leaf rear suspension with traction bars and power-assisted 4-wheel disc brakes; a custom-fabricated dual stainless-steel side exit exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers and stainless-steel gas tank complete the underpinnings. Riding in classic nose-down fashion on staggered Firestone Firehawk tires and polished Budnik aluminum wheels, the car exhibits a show-quality presentation. Brilliant blue metallic paint is decorated with vintage exterior touches including chromed headlights, cowl lamps, driver’s-side mirror and blue dot tail lights. Subtle beltline pinstriping and a cloth top insert are additional notable exterior features. Stylish passenger accommodations include two-tone custom leather upholstery on Glide Engineering seats, Stewart Warner gauges, a banjo steering wheel on an Ididit tilt column, Custom Auto Sound stereo system and Vintage Air climate control
F94 1956 Lincoln Premier Convertible 56WA8817L $60,000 $80,000 $64,350 Mid Following three consecutive victories in Mexico’s exciting but deadly Carrera Panamericana, Lincoln finally gained unique status as a separate division of the Ford Motor Company in 1955. The XL-500 and XM-800 concept cars provided many distinctive styling cues for the all-new 1956 production models, organized along the Capri and upmarket Premiere series, very nicely represented by this award-winning Premiere Convertible. Major styling cues included distinctively hooded headlamps, a new grille design and rear bumper-mounted exhaust outlets adorning dramatically longer, lower and wider bodies. When introduced, the bold elegance of the new Lincolns garnered wide acclaim, including an award for excellence from the Industrial Designers’ Institute. The sophisticated new Lincoln models also featured an aircraft-styled dash and controls, as well as Ford’s comprehensive range of standard “Lifeguard Design” safety advancements for 1956. Mechanically, the refined Lincoln V-8 engine received both displacement and power increases, with the 368 CI unit delivering 285 HP and 401 lb-ft of torque with a Carter 4-barrel carburetor, while Lincoln’s proprietary Turbo-Drive automatic transmission provided crisp acceleration and renowned drivability. In short, these new models left no doubt that Lincoln was redoubling its efforts to challenge Cadillac for supremacy in the American luxury car market, while Packard faced imminent extinction. The Lincoln Premiere convertible offered here is one of only 2,447 examples built for 1956 at a base price of $4,747 when new. It continues to benefit handsomely from a restoration performed by a Lincoln marque expert that resulted in achievement of an AACA National First Prize award. Abundant features include power steering, a pushbutton radio, power window lifts, courtesy lights and a canvas convertible top boot cover. Sleek, stylish and continuing from its award-winning restoration, this striking 1956 Lincoln Premiere Convertible is a fitting touchstone to Lincoln’s remarkable mid-1950s ascendancy.
F95 1931 Cadillac 370A Allweather Phaeton 1004488 $110,000 $140,000 $121,000 Mid The new Cadillacs for 1931 introduced some of the most beautiful styling of the Classic Era and incorporated the ideas of Harley Earl’s new Art & Color Section. Now available in V-8, V-12 and V-16 engine and chassis configurations, choices for luxury transportation were almost endless. This 1931 Cadillac 370A V-12 Fleetwood 4780 All Weather Phaeton from the Academy of Art University Collection is one of 169 built and is one of the most spectacular of the 1931 Cadillac open cars. Although Fleetwood referred to this body as an All Weather Phaeton, it would be considered a convertible sedan by other body builders, and it has roll-down glass windows with chrome frames that fit snugly into the folding tan canvas top. This Fleetwood All Weather Phaeton was treated to a no-expense-spared body-off restoration completed in 2005 and was previously part of the Charlie Thomas and William Munday collections. The chassis is the shorter 140-inch wheelbase, and the Cadillac is powered by a 368 CI 45-degree OHV V-12 engine developing 135 HP at 3,400 RPM. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels by a 3-speed synchromesh transmission and a bevel gear rear axle. This Cadillac has 18-inch wheels with stainless spokes and green painted hubs and rims mounted with wide whitewall tires. Stopping is provided by vacuum-assisted mechanical drum brakes on all four wheels. Suspension consists of front and rear parallel semi-elliptic leaf springs with hydraulic shock absorbers and a beam front axle. Accessory dual chrome-plated steerable Pilot-Ray lights brighten up the front end and the road ahead. The Fleetwood body is finished in striking light yellow with green fenders and green body moldings. It is equipped with optional dual side-mount spares with dual chrome-plated mirrors and a folding rear luggage rack with accessory trunk. The interior is finished in unusual, tan ostrich hide with matching tan carpet front and rear. This Cadillac is a CCCA Full Classic and would be a hit at any Classic Car Club or Cadillac & LaSalle Club show, tour or event, as well as the star of any classic car collection.
F96 1941 Cadillac Series 61 Convertible Sedan 8345326 $45,000 $65,000 $49,500 Mid LaSalle faded into the annals of history, as did the famed and fabled Cadillac V-16, as a production streamlining exercise took place at the Wreath and Crest in the latter part of the 1930s and the early 1940s. The 1941 model year would be the last for Model 62290, the esteemed four-door convertible—a mere 400 examples would be sold that year. Interestingly, in spite of the low number of convertible sedans sold, it would be a record-setting year for Cadillac with more than 65,000 cars sold in total. The convertible sedans were hand built using modified body panels from the sedan, lending the car a “semi-custom” quality, almost akin to coachbuilt cars from years prior. This one, a 1941 Cadillac Series 61 Convertible Sedan, benefits from a comprehensive restoration completed in 2007. Propelled by the 346/150 HP L-head V-8 engine and optional Hydra-Matic transmission, the Cadillac is cloaked in gray paint that offers a degree of subtle elegance and provides some restraint against the brightwork, including the famous Flying Goddess hood mascot. Bold yet elegant, this generation offered imposing styling that set it apart from many other cars of the era and set design trends that would span for generations to come, such as the egg-crate grille. The rear fenders are adorned with rubber stone guards, fender skirts and chrome design stripes while full-size wheel covers cap all four wheels, which are wrapped with wide whitewall tires. Sealed-beam headlights light the way and alert others to the massive car’s position on the highway while occupants enjoy being coddled in an environment of burgundy leather upholstery, overstuffed seats and amenities aplenty, such as would be expected by a Cadillac. While it was an era of final moments, it was also an era of new beginnings. Discovering such a rare Cadillac as this with the unique color combination and extensive restoration is indeed a treat.
F97 1941 Cadillac Series 60 Special Fleetwood Sedan 6340358C $30,000 $50,000 $33,000 Mid With coachwork by Fleetwood reserved exclusively for Cadillac and Classic Car Club of America Full Classic status, this 1941 Series 60 Special Fleetwood is a motorcar without compromise. The range-topping sedan underwent a comprehensive restoration with meticulous attention to detail from its Flying Goddess mascot to bumper guards for a return to its original unparalleled level of performance and luxury. Elegant burgundy paint complements the unique 60 Special design with front fenders that extend onto the doors and rear fenders outfitted with stone shields and wheel skirts. Exclusive rocker panel brightwork flows from the front fender out to the rear bumpers and emphasizes sleek lines. Superior engineering resulted in brisk propulsion around town, and the 60 Special is capable of 100 MPH speed out on the highway. Higher compression pistons and a Stromberg downdraft carburetor on a dual intake manifold pushed the 346 CI L-head V-8 engine to a factory-rated 150 HP for 1941. The famously quiet Cadillac V-8 is mated to a 3-speed synchromesh manual transmission. Knee-action coil-spring independent front suspension and live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs work in concert with 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes for ride and road control expected of a Cadillac. Livingroom comfort and luxury wait in the gray upholstered interior outfitted with genuine walnut and leather trim and smoking cases in each side rear armrest. Heat and defrost with automatic temperature control and floor-mount rear heater register deliver five-passenger climate control with fingertip convenience. Generous safety-plate glass allows for scenic vistas from the deep-cushioned seating. The Cadillac 60 Series Special rides on wide whitewall tires and steel wheels dressed with chrome hubcaps and trim rings. The spacious and automatically lighted trunk is equipped with an upright spare. via Gooding Scottsdale ’11 sold $66k
F98 1956 Nash Ambassador V14698 $25,000 $35,000 $31,350 Mid Unmatched features and engineering set this 1956 Nash Ambassador apart from its contemporaries. The unrestored original-condition example of midcentury American automotive splendor was produced one year before Nash wound down the assembly line and faded into history. What the company touted as a superlative automobile loaded with exclusive travel appointments was ahead of its time. Unit-body construction made for a roomier low-floor six-passenger cabin and improved safety over its body-on-frame contemporaries, and the full-size Nash achieved more than 25 MPG on the 1955 Mobilgas Economy Run. The 352/220 HP Jetfire engine was designed for brisk and quiet performance from traffic light to turnpike. With a Carter 2-barrel carburetor on an Iso-Thermal intake manifold, the Packard V-8 sent 220 HP through a Twin Ultramatic 2-speed automatic transmission. Power steering and brakes, independent front suspension and 4-wheel coil springs worked together for superior road control and big-car ride. An optional hood ornament leads the way, and two-tone yellow and green paint complement Nash Speedline styling. A green-tinted Scena-Ramic wraparound front windshield and rear glass filter out harsh light and offer panoramic views from the luxurious interior expanse. Green, blue and silver patterned upholstery was one of 14 combinations of vinyl and fabric all color-keyed to the exterior. A pushbutton radio and clock provide on-time entertainment, and the Weather Eye fresh air system features a single sliding control knob for fingertip temperature control. Airliner reclining front seats that turn into twin travel beds were an exclusive Nash feature from an era when air travel was a luxurious affair, and factory-issue gray carpeting ties the lounge together. The time-capsule Nash Ambassador Custom is ready for future enjoyment on its wide whitewall tires dressed in full-size wheel covers with a matching two-tone continental spare.
F99 1952 Studebaker Commander Convertible 8230633 $40,000 $60,000 $44,000 Mid Studebaker applied the Commander name to a number of its vehicles beginning in the 1920s and sustaining through the company’s demise in the 1960s. It was applied to topline and midlevel Studebakers, depending on the era. For the 1950s, at least until the 1955 President arrived, Commander was the upscale variant of the Studebaker Starlight coupe. Designed by Virgil Exner with Raymond Loewy, the car was also available as a convertible, lending it a truly chic, modern appearance. A handsome design statement, the Commander convertible also brought customers a host of enviable details and brightwork, as well as a unique interior styling that pushed the boundaries of contemporary styling. Priced on the slightly more expensive side of the spectrum, only 1,715 convertibles were built, marking them as exceedingly rare today. This example is equipped with the 232 CI V-8 engine, automatic transmission and the revolutionary Fresh-Air Climatizer, an option introduced in 1939 to improve upon the interior heater. The Climatizer heated the interior with fresh air flowing through independent ducting fed through the heater element, as opposed to using a hot water heater feeding off the engine’s cooling system. The result was an interior that was warm, but not stuffy or humid, with no more foggy windows or uncomfortable moisture. It was a relatively simple but remarkable option for a car back in the day. Handsomely equipped with a driver’s spotlight, stone guards, fender skirts, front and rear bumper guards and a pushbutton AM radio, this Commander convertible is ready for a cruise through time. Presented in light yellow with a red interior, this car features an abundance of exquisite details, largely a part of what made these cars so interesting to begin with. A car aimed square at the younger middle management set, the Commander convertible is one of those seldom seen, but fabulous, early midcentury modern cars that offer an exciting blend of effortless elegance and dramatic design.
F100 1939 Talbot Lago T150C Coupe 90060 $400,000.00 $500,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Offered in a variety of chassis lengths, with custom coachwork from a number of carrozzeria including Figoni et Falaschi and Portout, the T150-C would continue production up until 1939, when the onset of World War II would bring French car production to a standstill. The 1939 Talbot-Lago T150-C on offer is believed to be one of the very last examples constructed before World War II intervened. Interestingly, rather than being sent out to one of the French coachworks for its body, this T150-C (Chassis No. 90060) was graced with a body designed and built by Talbot-Lago, in house, on a long-wheelbase version of the T150-C chassis. With teardrop-shaped front fenders and an overall look reminiscent of the Alfa Romeo 8Cs of the period, this T150-C finished in French Blue features a luxurious Crimson leather-trimmed interior with fine wood accents, a 4-speed Wilson preselector gearbox, 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes and center-lock chrome wire wheels. Originally sold to a French doctor in 1939, the car was hidden away from the Germans during the war, only to reappear in Santa Barbara, California, in the 1950s. Then, in the mid-1970s, the T150-C was purchased by famed restorer and exotic car customizer Richard Straman, who would undertake an extensive and painstaking restoration of the Talbot-Lago. This motorcar represents a rare opportunity to acquire an example of one of the truly great French automobiles of the Art Deco period at the height of its powers.
F101 1931 Ford Model A Victoria A4063214 $25,000 $35,000 $27,500 Mid Previously part of the McMullen Collection, this 1931 Ford Victoria was among the last of its kind produced in a year that saw the 20-millionth Ford roll off the assembly line and the end of the road for the Model A. The Victoria model made its debut for 1930 with Deluxe appointments, a tan roof covering and an all-new slanted front windshield that distinguished the coupe from its peers. Faithfully restored to a high level of original detail, the low-volume Victoria holds a unique and rare position in the last year of Model A production that included more than 15 times as many Fordor models built. Factory correct from the belt and hose clamp to the Zenith updraft carburetor and woven wire insulation, the 201 CI inline 4-cylinder L-head engine and 3-speed manual transmission powertrain was good for 40 HP at 2,200 RPM and 128 lb-ft of torque just off idle. The Victoria travels on a simple but effective front and rear transverse leaf-spring suspension with 4-wheel mechanical drum brakes. Henry Ford might have said farewell to the Model A for 1931 but held out steadfast against hydraulic brake systems until 1939. The coupe body is finished in a tri-tone black, olive and dark green color scheme topped with yellow accent striping and dual cowl lamps. An optional Boyce Motometer and chrome radiator stone guard led the way with practical style. Running boards and forward-folding front seats make for easy access to the four-place interior, smartly outfitted from the mohair headliner and wood-grain accents to optional tan Bedford cloth upholstery. Welded wire wheels are color keyed to the yellow pinstripe accent lines and fitted with Firestone tires for an authentic ride. A matching rear-mounted spare ensures uninterrupted Ford Model A motoring into a collection or over the road.
F102 1936 Ford Phaeton 18-3076880 $35,000 $45,000 $38,500 Mid Stylish Phaeton-bodied cars seemed reserved for the most affluent motorists, until Ford decided they could be for anyone making a decent wage. This Washington Blue 1936 Ford Phaeton is a prime example of Ford’s goal—a car styled in the traditional Phaeton philosophy with an expansive amount of air space for fair-weathered motoring with friends and family. The 221 CI flathead V-8 engine uses an oil-bath air cleaner to provide the Stromberg 97 downdraft carburetor with air while a 3-speed manual transmission helps direct power to the steel rear wheels topped with Deluxe V-8 hubcaps. Firestone wide whitewall tires complete the look. Riding on transverse leaf springs, mechanical drum brakes bring the Ford to a stop. Inside, passengers will enjoy the large beige, folding top keeping the sun off them while air circulates without restriction, keeping things cool for the drive. The interior is upholstered in tan leather, and the dashboard features simulated wood-grain, both of which conspire with the open-air experience to create a remarkably luxurious sense of freedom. The ivory-colored gauges nestled into the dashboard are offset by a radio utilizing a Ford-emblazoned speaker box above the driver’s footwell. Complete with the greyhound mascot seemingly leaping over the V-8 emblem floating atop the grille, the Phaeton also features a banjo steering wheel, bumper guards and blue-dot tail light lenses among other great details. The Great Depression created a bleak time in the country, and in many cases, hope came by way of the strangest sources, cars being one of them. Cars were credited, sometimes, with inspiring people that better times were coming, and with Ford producing cars that looked like they were ready for a cruise along California’s palm-tree-lined coast or taking people for a night on the town with dinner at Musso and Frank or Tam O’Shanter, hope indeed could simmer a bit, staving off some of the grim overtone so many felt. Cars like this reminded people that fun times were still available for the taking, and not just for the wealthier motorists.
F103 1931 Cadillac 355-A Roadster 803983 $140,000.00 $160,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A An estimated $200,000 was invested in the painstaking nut-and-bolt restoration of this 1931 Cadillac 355-A Roadster with Fleetwood coachwork, one of many Cadillacs of its era designated a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America. Cadillacs of the early 1930s set new standards from engineering to body design, and they are now considered among the elite automobiles of the Classic Era. Cadillac’s advanced engineering notwithstanding, it was designer Harley J. Earl who distinguished Cadillac in the minds of potential buyers. Earl’s career with Cadillac began after Los Angeles Cadillac dealer Don Lee purchased the Earl family coachbuilding business, Earl Automobile Works. Lee soon introduced the young Californian to Cadillac President Lawrence Fisher, who, after viewing Earl’s portfolio, invited him to Detroit to design the trend-setting 1927 LaSalle. Fisher then chose Earl to head General Motors’ new Art and Color Section, the automotive industry’s first such entity. Fresh from the LaSalle triumph, Earl turned his attention to Cadillac, working under the philosophy that cars were sold not in the showrooms but out on the road. Earl’s penchant for mixing flamboyance with impeccable taste was central to Cadillac’s success, considering the company positioned itself as “The Standard of the World.” But while the V-12 and V-16 Cadillacs of the period certainly dazzled the imagination, it was the V-8 models that carried the day, and Earl made sure they remained on an aesthetic par with such styling cues as the popular hood vent doors and upswept coach sill on this 1931 rumble-seat roadster, one of the most popular body styles in the V-8 line. An outstanding restoration, this Model 355-A’s two-tone red and black finish is complemented with a black interior and top, and it comes complete with dual side-mount spares, painted wheels with stainless-steel spokes, wide whitewall tires, Pilot Ray lights, a golf club door, rumble seat and luggage rack.
F104 1932 Ford Victoria Drauz 18-71738 $125,000 $145,000 $154,000 6% It is unusual for any Ford to be accepted as a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America, but this fabulous 1932 Ford V-8 Convertible Victoria is one of very few boasting Full Classic status due to its custom coachwork by Drauz. Drauz Karosseriewerke was founded in 1900 and was located in Heilbronn, Germany. In 1929, Drauz began a relationship with Ford of Germany to produce custom bodies in volume, and by 1932, it had developed this one-off design. This multi-award winning Ford was imported from The Netherlands to the U.S. in 1968, and the body was restored by Ed Sutton of the former Otis Chandler collection. This unique Victoria rides on a 106-inch wheelbase chassis with 4-wheel mechanical drum brakes, with a 3-speed manual transmission and a torque-tube driveshaft connected to a live rear axle. Red steel-spoke wheels sport bright trim rings and blackwall tires. The suspension uses transverse leaf springs front and rear. The engine is an L-head 221 CI flathead V-8 engine that develops 65 HP at 3,400 RPM. The Victoria body has unusually wide 42-inch doors and is finished in Burgundy with darker maroon fenders. It is equipped with dual side-mounted spares with gloss black and chrome steel tire covers. The rear of the body has a large metal trunk designed to appear integral with the body lines. The radiator grille has a custom thin chrome surround with a vertical center bar. The body is complemented with a tan padded canvas folding top with a headlining and chrome landau irons. The interior is handcrafted maroon leather with matching Wilton wool carpet, further featuring a burled hardwood instrument panel with Ivory tusk knobs. This Ford was featured in the book, “’32 Ford Deuce” by Tony Thacker and has been featured in “Hemmings Classic Car” and “V-8 Times” magazines. The striking Teutonic styling of the Drauz body and the high-quality restoration have garnered multiple concours wins, including 1,000 points to win the Dearborn Award at the 2005 Western National Ford meet, the Sweepstakes Award at the 2005 Grand National Roadster Show, the 2009 CCCA San Marino Grand Classic and 2010 CCCA San Diego Annual Meeting.
F105 1929 Hudson Murphy Club Sedan 43839 $45,000 $60,000 $41,800 -7% Usually a Classic Car Club of America Full Classic is based on a Full Classic chassis such as a Cadillac, Packard or Duesenberg, but upon special application, certain unique models are accepted based solely on their custom coachwork. This 1929 Greater Hudson Model L is such a rare example. Fitted with a custom Club Sedan body designed by Murphy Co., built by Biddle & Smart and offered from The Academy of Art University Collection, it is indeed worthy of Full Classic status. The Walter M. Murphy Co. of Pasadena, California, is best known for its beautiful coachwork on the Model J Duesenberg. In 1928, Murphy designed a few prototype body sedans based on a Gangloff-inspired “Clear Vision” convertible sedan but with a roof that was 3-inches taller. While six cars of similar design were commissioned, Murphy lacked the capacity to build in quantity, and the cars were sent to coachbuilders Biddle & Smart Co. of Amesbury, Massachusetts, for production. This Hudson is just such an example and carries a “Designed by Walter M. Murphy, Coachbuilders, Pasadena” cowl tag. This 1929 Hudson Model L’s Murphy-designed and Biddle & Smart-constructed body rides on a 139-inch wheelbase with Bendix 4-wheel mechanical drum brakes, a solid-beam front axle and semi-elliptic parallel leaf springs front and rear. The chassis is supported by 18-inch red-painted, steel-spoke wheels with wide whitewall tires. For a sporty appearance, this Hudson is fitted with dual side-mounted spare tires with accessory mirrors. The engine is a 289 CI F-head inline-6 that develops 92 HP at 3,200 RPM. Power is sent to the rear wheels by a 3-speed manual transmission and a live rear axle. The body is finished in light tan with dark brown moldings and maroon fenders and splash aprons, and the tan fabric roof is accented by a matching fabric covered trunk and chrome landau irons. The interior is tan cloth with carpets and a rear footrest. The Biddle & Smart-built coachwork and high roofline on this Hudson emphasize a light and airy style accented by bright window surrounds. This multiple-award winner has had a four-year ground-up restoration and would be well-respected at any tour or show.
F106 1941 Buick Roadmaster Convertible Coupe 14098440 $100,000.00 $140,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Upscale and en vogue, the Buick Roadmaster has long held the title of most prestigious Buick, the name instantly recognizable and widely appreciated as a luxury car offering outstanding value, trendsetting styling and bold use of materials and design. This 1941 Roadmaster is a multiple AACA Senior Grand National winner and presents in lovely condition, the popular light-yellow color offering an elegant cheeriness contrasted with an interior carpeted and upholstered in a rich red. A 320/165 HP inline 8-cylinder engine and 3-speed manual transmission motivate the convertible in effortless fashion, the famous “Valve-In-Head” design of the “Fireball Dynaflash Eight” creating one of the most efficient, responsive engines of the era. An independent front suspension and semi-floating rear axle with coil springs at all four corners was designed to help provide a supple ride blended with stability at speed and negotiating curves and corners, while 4-wheel hydraulic brakes heighten the sense of security and control. An interesting point about Buick, it was constantly developing and researching new ways to make an automobile as enjoyable, comfortable and rewarding as it could be, engineering and styling both paramount to the company’s philosophy. Buick’s efforts in advanced engineering offered customers many forward-thinking and, often, unconventional features well before other manufacturers brought similar products to market, making them one of the more technologically inclined companies at the time. Buick’s work intersecting flowing lines, gentle curves and careful use of trim, as well as the creative use of materials such as engine-turned aluminum, stainless trim with painted details, specialized fabrics and upholsteries, all conspired to create fantastically styled cars that subtly stood out among the rest. This one has steel wheels painted to match the body, chrome hubcaps and trim rings, all wrapped with wide whitewall tires, that help sustain the upscale look and feel that helped put Buick at the top.
F107 1940 Buick Limited Sport Phaeton 83929610 $140,000.00 $180,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A By 1940, it was near the end of an era for four-door convertibles, but designers at General Motors wanted that era to go out with a bang. This 1940 Buick Limited Sport Phaeton was priced at $1,952 when new and is one of only seven built. A dramatic example of what peak pre-World War II styling had become, the 1940 models were modernized considerably compared to 1939 and featured a wider grille with the headlights incorporated into the front fenders. The running boards of 1939 were eliminated, giving the new Buick a more cohesive appearance. This restored Limited offered by the Academy of Art University Collection rides on a 133-inch wheelbase chassis previously used for the Roadmaster and rolls on 7.50-16 wide whitewall tires on painted steel wheels with chrome wheel covers and bright trim rings. Coil springs, front and rear, with independent front suspension give it a smooth ride, and hydraulic drum brakes bring it to a stop. The power is provided by the iconic 320 CI OHV Dynaflash straight-8 engine with a single dual-downdraft carburetor that produces 141 HP at 3,600 RPM and 269 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 RPM. Power is sent to the semi-floating rear axle by a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission. The Buick’s body is finished in the correct 1940 Verde Green color and is beautifully contrasted with a tan, canvas-type convertible top. Dual fender-mounted spare tires in hard steel covers dress up the styling while dual amber fog lamps help light the way in the front. The interior artfully matches the exterior with smooth, green leather throughout, trimmed with fold-down armrests and coordinated green wool carpet front and rear. Options and accessories include a $63 Sonomatic pushbutton radio, ash tray, lighter and Fresh Aire under-seat heater and defroster. This CCCA Full Classic 1940 Limited Sport Phaeton has undergone a comprehensive restoration and would be a star at any Buick Club, AACA or CCCA show.
F108 1938 MG TA DHC TA2678 $100,000.00 $130,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Perhaps more than any other car, it was the MG TA Midget that jump-started the American love affair with British sports cars, and for good reason. As British magazine “The Autocar” wrote after its 1936 launch, “The latest Series T MG Midget … gives an unusually good performance for its engine size, handles in a distinctly better manner than the ordinary touring vehicle and possesses those touches in the tout ensemble that endear it to the owner with sporting tendencies.” Among its fans was ace British flyer Douglas Bader, who bought a new TA in 1938. After losing both legs in a flying accident in 1931, Bader battled bureaucracy to be allowed to fly again and went on to become one of the most famous RAF fighter pilots of World War II. The TA was not only the quintessential British sportscar for the quintessential British hero, but beloved by U.S. servicemen stationed in Britain as well, many of them later taking their pert and agile little piece of Britain home with them. The two-seater TA—though diminutive by American standards—was larger and more comfortable than its predecessor, and more powerful, too, with its bigger 1292cc/50 HP 4-cylinder engine that could propel the lightweight MG to a heady 79 MPH. While the vast majority of the 3,003 TAs produced though 1939 were open roadsters, there was also a much rarer and far more lavish, bespoke, three-position Tickford drophead coupe, of which approximately 260 were produced. The car on offer here is a fine example of the Tickford drophead coupe. With its working landau irons, sumptuous padded top and roll-up windows, it resembles a scaled-down 3.5L or 4.5L Bentley, and it’s fitted out accordingly with Wilton carpets and a red leather interior. Such opulence and elegance made it far more costly in its day than the standard roadster. Any serviceman who brought home a TA roadster would find his automobile admired; the few with Tickford drophead coupes would have been envied.
F109 1965 Porsche 356SC Coupe 221610 $90,000 $125,000 $68,750 -24% The 1965 model year would be the last year of production for the Porsche 356, the iconic sports car that created the mystique and legend of the German marque. This elegant factory black on black 356SC coupe is generously optioned with factory-correct chrome wheels, flat hubcaps centered with the Porsche cloisonné crest, Hella driving lights below the front bumper and the original dual-band radio. It is additionally equipped with period-correct accessories that include a chrome Leitz luggage rack, Haneline engine-turned interior threshold plates and Coco Mats. The engine has been treated to a fresh rebuild with new pistons, cylinders, exhaust system and head machine work. The year 1965 would represent the final evolution of the Porsche 356 model. With that evolution came the highest-horsepower pushrod 4-cylinder engine ever available from Porsche, with the SC rated at 102 HP. This engine produced 15% more horsepower than the standard C engine and featured a stouter counter-weighted crankshaft, short-skirt pistons, a higher compression ratio, a more radical camshaft configuration, sodium-filled exhaust valves and larger twin Solex 40 carburetors. This generation of Porsche also featured 4-wheel disc brakes, and the SC came with Koni shocks as standard equipment. Prior to the final two years of production, the majority of bodies for the 356 were constructed by Reutter, while the remaining coachwork was subcontracted out to other karosserie such as Karmann, D’Ieteren and Drauz. In May 1964, Porsche purchased Reutter and retained its services for seat design and manufacture, but it sent the coachwork to Karmann. Hence, this car is a 356SC coupe with Karmann coachwork. It is important to remember that the outgoing 356 and the newly introduced 911 were being built side-by-side during the 1965 model year. For this reason, production output for all 356 coupes was limited to about 1,100 units in 1965, helping to make this beauty a rare and desirable example.
F110 1962 Pontiac Catalina Convertible 362P18854 $100,000 $120,000 $77,000 -23% On occasion, a car shows up that simply requires attention, and if you are an enthusiast of the 1960s Super Duty era, this highly original, unrestored Tri-Power 1962 Catalina convertible is for you. Showing only 20,400 original miles, this amazing car features both its original Ensign Blue paint and matching interior, as well as the matching-numbers drivetrain. For serious buyers in 1962, the plan was power, and in this case it was the hot 389/318 HP engine with Tri-Power carburetion underneath a wide circular air cleaner. Complete with dual exhaust, this was an engine that could perform as the Catalina’s reputation required, especially as coupled here to the BorgWarner T-10 4-speed transmission and a Safe-T-Track differential. Once examining its overall presentation, the care lavished on this convertible by its longtime original owner is evident. Even the original white soft top with the clear, plastic rear window is still intact. The 1962 Catalina was noteworthy in the simplicity of its styling—a partial side spear emerging from a coved door area to the rear, clean horizontal grille ribbing with center divider and quad headlamps. Inside the car are wide bench seats, factory column-mount Pontiac tachometer, deluxe radio with manual antenna, floor mats and dual-speed wipers. Of course, one point of interest with this model are the 8-lug aluminum road wheels with Pontiac Motor Division centers. This car has narrow-type white-stripe tires, the perfect complement to the performance mindset then coming into vogue. Previously featured in “Muscle Car Enthusiast” magazine, this Catalina convertible also comes with PHS documentation. With its impeccable provenance, stunning overall preservation, desirable options and model-year-specific cues, it would not be incorrect to assert that this 1962 Catalina convertible had few equals in those categories.
F112 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubble Top 21637J261609 $200,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The “right look” has always played a big role in any modified car project, and it’s safe to say that this beautifully transformed 1962 Chevrolet Bel Air Bubble Top has it. An upscale hardtop design whose reputation has been intact since the day it first appeared on showroom floors, the stock Bel Air was already very stylish, perhaps even the foremost representation of the American automobile during the first half of the 1960s. Now with its noteworthy signature roof lowered thanks to a professional-level chop, this example stands out even more. Beauty is far more than skin deep here, though, since the basis for this project was a 1.625-inch tube chassis. The 409 W-head engine was professionally bored and stroked to 482 CI, and it features one-off Algon fuel injection and show-quality chrome work. This is all backed by a Richmond 6-speed transmission and Currie 4.10-ratio differential. Other changes underneath include Morrison spindles and A-arms, Baer brakes and Air Ride equipment. Beautiful white and red paint paired with smoothed, minimalized exterior detailing are also stunning. Inside is a custom leather interior with uniquely faced custom gauges, and the car also features custom glass work. The set of one-off 19- and 20-inch Colorado Custom wheels with Pirelli radial tires completes the absolute commitment to being considered among the best. The effort has resulted in the honor of this wonderful machine being named a PPG Dream Car Pick following its initial retrofitting. If it seems familiar beyond those accolades, it is because this vehicle has also been featured in magazines such as “Hot Rod,” “Super Chevy,” “Super Rod,” “Custom Rodder” and “American Muscle Cars.” Winner of the Mothers Shine Award at SEMA in 2007, this Bubble Top has attained a level of fame few vehicles in the hobby can claim.

F114 1964 Porsche 356C 1600 Coupe 126922 $115,000.00 $135,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1964 Porsche 356C is a three-owner car that has accrued little more than 66,635 believed-original miles since new. The original owner of the car traded it in with 20,000 miles at Chick Iverson Porsche-Audi, the certified dealer located in the upscale city of Newport Beach, California. The general manager at the dealership was immediately captivated by the car and purchased it for his personal use. Ultimately, his son would take ownership, who still has it to this day. Just a few years ago, the 356C underwent a respray in the original color of Irish Green and an interior restitch in the correct tan leather. Shortly thereafter, the engine was given a freshening with new pistons, barrels and valve work. Likewise, the engine compartment was detailed with the correct colors on the shroud, and proper decals and markings were applied. The car has been sparingly driven in the time since this work was performed. The 356C is equipped with chrome wheels, chrome hubcaps with the cloisonné Porsche crest, and a Leitz luggage rack mounted on the rear decklid. This machine has been a garaged Southern California car since it was new—in both Newport Beach and Malibu—and the benefit of the dry climate is evident throughout the entire structure. The entire underside is bone dry, with the floorplans, longitudinals, jack receivers, battery box and central tunnel devoid of corrosion or rust. Likewise, the condition of the body and inner structure—door jambs, underside of hood—appears to be beyond reproach. Many knowledgeable Porsche 356 enthusiasts consider the final years of 1964 and 1965 as the ultimate expression of this iconic sports car’s development over its 18-year lifespan.
F115 1962 Alpha One 250GTO Replica HLS30303255 $85,000.00 $95,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This Alpha One has the distinction of having been used in the Paramount Pictures film “Vanilla Sky,” starring Tom Cruise. Driven by Cruise in a dream sequence scene, a copy of the Paramount Pictures title will be included with the car, along with a studio press kit, certified signed photograph of Tom Cruise with Penelope Cruz, and an Alpha One body brochure. Powered by a Chevrolet small-block V-8 engine and a GM automatic transmission, the car is poised to move with sweet aggression, much like the Ferrari 250 GTO it impersonates. Few cars command the respect of the original example from Maranello. In spite of their beautifully aggressive design and outlandish performance capabilities, only 36 were made to allow homologation into the FIA Group 3 Grand Touring Car category. Given the rarity and current breathtakingly high price point, it’s obvious only a distinct few will ever be able to own an original. Barry Goldstein of Eagle Engineering in California is reputed to have designed and built the first examples of a GTO replica, but, because of legal pressures, he quit and sold his tooling to Joe Alphabet, who specialized in selling Italian vehicles. Based in Southern California, he began producing new replicas and called them the Alpha One GTO. Legal issues stopped Alphabet’s Alpha One production, and the tooling was sold, this time to Tom McBurnie of McBurnie Coachcraft, who had a reputation for building Corvette-based Ferrari Daytona Spyder replicas. The tooling continued to be passed around, attempting to circumvent legal issues. This example is painted a very dark metallic blue, its bodywork being very hard to fault; the brightwork is exquisite, and the overall attention to detail is commendable. The sliding side windows are a fabulous touch, as are the low-back bucket seats, wire wheels, reconfigured dashboard, wooden steering wheel with aluminum center, and the gear lever cleverly disguised to resemble a manual transmission. This Alpha One—restored in 2007 by Vintage Motors in Arizona—is a special car, most notably because it was chosen to star in the movie “Vanilla Sky” with Tom Cruise behind the wheel.
F116 1964 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III BJ8 HBJ8L/25512 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Restored back to original condition, this 1964 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII BJ8 represents the final iteration of this fabulous sports car that was first built in 6-cylinder configuration starting back in 1956. It is presented in period-correct Light Metallic Blue with 60-spoke chrome wire wheels, chrome bumper guards and a chrome trunk-mounted luggage rack. The interior is appointed with a factory-correct Amblia Blue leatherette interior and features a burled-walnut hardwood dashboard and a matching blue convertible top, tonneau cover and boot cover. An authentic “banjo-spoke” steering wheel and Wilton wool blue carpeting complete the 2+2 cabin of this vintage classic. Model year 1964 was a pivotal one for the Austin-Healey. The new-for-1964 3000 MkIII BJ8 became a far more sophisticated car, shedding its prior roadster persona for that of a sports-touring convertible that now featured a newly designed windshield with wind wings, a quick-action folding roof and roll-up side windows. The Mark III BJ8 now had the creature comforts necessary for long-distance touring in sharp contrast to that of the early Healey 3000s, which were spartan roadsters with minimal weather protection. The Austin-Healey 3000 was always a much coveted sports car that distinguished itself from its 4-cylinder British rivals with its robust and large 2.9L inline 6-cylinder engine. The popularity of the 3000 has remained constant for five major reasons: its beautiful shape makes it a timeless classic; its inline 6-cylinder engine provides brisk acceleration and ample torque; its interior appointments make for a cabin with creature comforts; its front disc brakes provide exemplary stopping power; and its overdrive transmission provides effortless cruising at freeway speeds. One of only 4,428 BJ8 2+2 sports convertibles produced over its four-year production span from 1964-67, this example is an exceptional find.
F117 1953 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster E53F001300 $500,000.00 $750,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A A well-known and highly honored member of the Corvette fraternity, this 1953 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster is the very last of the 300 produced that inaugural year. Like all first-year Corvettes, it was hand built at the dedicated production facility set up on Van Slyke Avenue in Flint, Michigan. Production of the all-new Corvette two-seater began on June 30, 1953, and ended with this car, Serial No. E53F001300, which was completed, appropriately enough, on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1953. This car’s significance to the history of America’s Sports Car goes beyond its serial number. As the last of the handmade first-year Corvettes, it incorporates all of the improvements and refinements made to the production process through 1953. Because of the hectic rush to get the car into Chevrolet showrooms, the first completed cars were comparatively crude in nature. Five different methods of laying up the fiberglass body panels, comprising 30 major and 32 minor parts, were initially used, but eventually narrowed to the single best process. As the last hand-built 1953 Corvette, No. 300 incorporates all of the improvements developed in that initial production period, making it the most refined in terms of fit, finish and overall appearance. No. 300 was purchased new by a California physician, who immediately had it repainted in black, likely to distinguish it from the Polo White paint decorating all 1953 Corvettes. Among the car’s earliest magazine appearances were mentions in a 1971 issue of the Vintage Corvette Club of America’s “Blue Flame Special” newsletter and “Corvette News” in 1973. After a second owner and several years in storage, the car was purchased in 1984 by Florida dentist Ernie Hendry, who then commissioned noted Corvette specialists Sara Blake and Joe Meyer to perform a comprehensive restoration. During Hendry’s ownership, No. 300 received Bloomington Gold Certification in 1988 as well as the NCRS National Top Flight, Performance Verification and Duntov Mark of Excellence awards by 1990, and it was inducted into the Bloomington Gold Special Collection in 1991. For a time it was also part of General Motors’ World of Motion display at Disney World’s EPCOT Center. In 1998, Hendry sold the car to the Jim Fasnacht Collection. Following a freshening by the Naber Brothers of Houston, No. 300 was again inducted into the Bloomington Gold Hall of Fame in 1999. Jim Fasnacht commissioned marque expert and NCRS Master Judge Steve Newsome in 2007 to perform a restoration, which Fasnacht described as “fanatical by all accounts.” Completed with a top and interior by specialist John Kennedy, the car was then invited to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and driven on the Pebble Beach Tour in 2008 as part of the Monterey Car Week’s celebration of General Motors’ history. Subsequently inducted into the Bloomington Gold Grand Finale Special Collection in 2009, No. 300 has been prominently featured over the years in many books and magazines, including on the cover of “Collectible Automobile” in 1998 and the February 2004 issue of “Corvette Enthusiast Magazine.” This historically significant Corvette’s presentation remains in exquisite condition that once again matches how it left the factory, in a combination of iconic Polo White paint with a red interior and beige soft top. The side curtains, jack, award certificates, judging sheets and a matching No. 300 brick from the original Corvette assembly plant are included. Seldom seen by the public in recent years, as the last hand-built Corvette, it qualifies as a genuine treasure of American automotive history.
F118 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 3U61X150499 $95,000.00 $120,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A For 1963, Ford’s Galaxie 500 was one of the trendsetters on the nation’s speedways, but nothing from that year can match this unique SOHC-powered example. The beneficiary of a comprehensive cosmetic and mechanical restoration, this car retains the traditional ’63 Galaxie backlight and was actually built on the assembly line with a 352 CI engine and 3-speed transmission. Once confronted with the Chrysler Hemi, Ford unleashed the race-only single-overhead-cam “Cammer” 427 CI engine. Created back in 1966, the engine here is one a mere 500 or so of these notorious powerplants produced by Ford but sold only over the counter; the SOHC was never installed in a street production car and was quickly ruled ineligible for NASCAR competition as well. Drag racers made the most use of them. The SOHC engine in this car uses a single 4-barrel carburetor and is rated at 618 HP. Changes to its appearance are minimal, but today it uses custom headers and dual exhaust, an MSD 6AL ignition and a Griffin aluminum radiator. Behind it are a wide-ratio Toploader 4-speed manual transmission and a nodular third-member case with Detroit Locker and Daytona pinion support equipped with 31-spline Husky axles and 4.11 gears. Handling has been improved with polygraphite suspension components and added traction bars in the rear. Nonetheless, the car retains its old-school appearance with jet black paint and a red split bench-seat interior. Inside is a column-mounted 8,000 RPM tachometer, the Hurst shifter, 500-series vinyl trim and red carpet. The only real giveaways to the changes wrought to the car are 427 front fender emblems, Holman Moody rear-quarter window decals, a modest overall rake and that big “Cammer” sound. Running on painted steel wheels equipped with Ford-script hubcaps and Uniroyal Glas-Belt tires, the image of Ford’s Total Performance is complete. Hood down, this black beauty will turn heads; hood-up, it will thrill on-lookers. And under acceleration it’s even better.
F119 1967 Ferrari 275GTB/4 10735 $2,500,000 $3,000,000 $2,750,000 Mid Chassis No. 10735, this magnificent 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 is a late production European-spec example completed in December 1967 with Bianco Polo paint, a Rosso VM 3171 leather interior, rear-window defroster and power windows. It was delivered new in January 1968 through Franco-Britannic Autos in Paris to a French surgeon in Chambéry. In the fall of 1970, the car was in an accident in the French Alps, after which it was sold to a dealer in Montlhéry. In the late 1970s, it was sold to a German owner who had it completely rebuilt. In March 1984, it was advertised for sale in the German magazine “Auto Motor Und Sport” with the following description: “Ferrari 275 GTB/4, one of the last ones, Chassis number 10735, completely dismantled, fully galvanized, and then totally rebuilt, all new and original, nitro paint Rosso Chiaro, cream Connolly leather, unique collector piece, asking German Marks DM 300’000, Telephone 02406/7636 or 2071.” No. 10735 remained in German ownership until 1986, when it was imported to the U.S. by marque expert Ron Spangler of Prancing Horse Farm in Bel Air, Maryland. Spangler then sold it to Gie Liem of Philadelphia, who commissioned a painstaking nut-and-bolt restoration that saw it finished in Rosso with a Pelle Nera leather interior and gray carpeting. As documented in the detailed Ferrari Classiche “red book” that accompanies the car, the chassis, body, engine, gearbox/differential, suspension and brakes are original to the car, with correct, original factory stampings and tags. The original alloy wheels were replaced with a correct and very clean set of Borrani RW 4039 14×7-inch alloy wire wheels fitted with correct Michelin XWX 205/70VR14 radial tires. Thorough inspection confirms the car’s excellent paint, brightwork, glass and overall fit and finish, as well as the highly detailed and correct interior, engine compartment and undercarriage. An exquisite example of one of the most significant and desirable Ferrari road cars, 275 GTB/4 No. 10735 earned Ferrari Certification in 2018 and is offered with a Massini report, books, records and tools.
F120 1954 Kurtis 500S Roadster 5686031395 $450,000.00 $600,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Essentially a Kurtis Indy roadster with room for two, the car’s frame was constructed of steel tubing with a center box section for torsional strength, and it could take almost any kind of engine, almost always a Detroit V-8. The suspension was straight out of the roadster: a front tube axle with twin leading arms and torsion bars, and a solid Ford rear axle located by trailing arms. Steering was provided by simple worm gear and a Pitman arm, and the rest of the driveline components were the Hot Rodder’s staple, Ford. The open passenger compartment was a simple affair with minimal comfort and straightforward driver controls, the bodywork formed from a minimal amount of aluminum and fiberglass, including the vestigial cycle fenders. Viewed from the front, the car’s rectangular cross-section and vertical-bar grille made it instantly recognizable as a Kurtis. The 1954 Kurtis 500S offered here is one of approximately 30 produced. It was purchased at a swap meet more than 42 years ago by “Motor Trend” Magazine Classic Comments Editor Robert Gottlieb. A well-known and respected Beverly Hills attorney, Gottlieb was the hired legal counsel for some of the most notable players in the automotive industry, including Cadillac, General Motors, “Hot Rod” magazine publisher Petersen Publishing and others, and he was close friends with both Frank Kurtis and Bill Honda. It was in the April 1978 edition of his long-running column that Gottlieb described the original condition in which he found the 500S as well as his own conservative treatment of the car post-discovery, noting that “The entire body is aluminum except for the steel front cycle fenders and the fiberglass turtle back. The car is extremely light, awfully noisy, loads of fun and extremely scarce. It has never been in a major accident and is probably the most original Kurtis 500 in existence. Few people recognize it on occasional jaunts through Los Angeles. It still has its original red paint and original chrome, and it appears to be a perfect unaltered specimen.” The car is powered by a vintage Cadillac engine, and after all that time in Gottlieb’s generous care, it remains today perhaps the best original Kurtis Kraft 500S roadster in the world.
F121 1952 Allard J2 Roadster J2179 $800,000.00 $1,200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The last of a total of 90 J2 Allards built, J2179 was ordered on August 15, 1951, with special instructions for black paint, red leather upholstery and a “bulge in the bonnet to take Cadillac.” It was then shipped to Texas and fitted with a 331 CI Cadillac V-8, after which it was purchased by its original owner Charles Brown of Monroe, Louisiana. Records show that J2179 was twice driven by Fred Cook, and then raced at least three times in SCCA competition by Carroll Shelby to three wins. “I’m not going to quarrel with anyone who might feel like calling this machine a hairy brute,” Shelby wrote later of the J2, observing that, “once you got to know its temperament and master some of its oddball traits, it took something costing twice as much to beat you”—a fairly accurate description, in fact, of his own legendary machines. Allard J2179 essentially launched Shelby’s career beyond all expectations. This success led to more drives in powerful lightweight racers. He raced for the late, great owner-entrant John Edgar, as well as Tony Parravano. His success in their Ferraris and Maseratis led to David Brown, the owner of Aston Martin, inviting him to join his works team. This culminated in the aforementioned 1959 victory at Le Mans with Roy Salvadori co-driving. What happened to J2179 was typical as the development of newer, faster racers came along. Charles Brown sold the car to Wilfred Gray from Indianapolis. During the mid-‘50s, he raced the car in SCCA events at such venues as Elkhart Lake and the remarkable Mount Equinox. What makes Mount Equinox so spectacular is its 3,000-foot elevation change in a span of just 5 miles; it is perhaps the steepest hill climb in North America. The next owner, Dan Saunders, raced the Allard at Wilmot Hills in southern Wisconsin, Wilmot Hills doubling as a ski hill in the winter and serving as a race track while the snow was gone. In 1972, Chris Leydon acquired J2179. It was about this time that the older race cars, long viewed as uncompetitive, started to be considered part of automotive history. This warranted recommissioning. In the case of J2179, this included period colors of a red exterior and black interior, a full windscreen and wire wheels. The winning Sir Stirling Moss and J2179 were featured together in a program titled, “The Great Classic Cars.” From there, the car continued to be enjoyed and treasured over the years. The next big event was the 1997 Monterey Historic races, the significance of that event being that Carroll Shelby was the honoree on which the weekend’s festivities were centered. The idea of Shelby being reunited with the car that launched his career is remarkable for any enthusiast of historic racers. In 2005, J2179 was part of the “Gotta Have It” television program. Its most recent event was the 2015 Allard Reunion at Elkhart Lake. J2179 has been restored to its original color scheme of black with red leather upholstery and is equipped with its believed-original Cadillac V-8 along with the proper transmission. The Cadillac engine is fitted with triple Stromberg 48 carburetors on a vintage Weiand intake manifold, a Crane Competition camshaft and the custom exhaust originally built and installed by a young fabricator who would go on take his own place among the giants of racing, Mickey Thompson. The period-correct wheels and tires are in place along with the numerous other details expected of a racer of this importance. Undoubtedly one of the most significant of all Allards, J2179 played a major role in automotive history. It not only launched the career of Carroll Shelby, but also served as Shelby’s inspiration for the world championship-winning Cobra.
F122 1966 Ferrari 275GTS 07967 $1,100,000 $1,400,000 $1,100,000 Mid One of only 200 produced from 1965 through 1966, the gorgeous Ferrari 275 GTS offered here was mechanically sorted by marque expert Terry Myr in 1983. It was also cosmetically refreshed by Mike Kleeves, who stripped the car to bare sheet metal and repainted it in Rosso Corsa; the interior and top were replaced at the same time. Rendered in black leather, the interior incorporates such classic Ferrari features as a wood-rimmed steering wheel, gated shift plate and Veglia instrumentation set into the wood-trimmed dash. Michelin radial tires mounted on desirable Borrani chromed wire wheels complete this timelessly beautiful Ferrari 275 GT Spyder, one of the greatest V-12 grand-touring automobiles of its era.
F123 1967 Ferrari 330GTC 10457 $450,000.00 $600,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Serial No. 10457, this magnificent 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC is one of only 602 produced from the model’s March 1966 introduction at the Geneva Auto Salon to the end of 1968. Following on the heels of a generation of great Grand Turismo Ferraris, the 330 GTC incorporated the 275 GTB chassis, the 330 GT 2+2’s engine and Pininfarina bodywork that borrowed from the rear of the 275 GTS and the front of the 400 Superamerica. Such a variance of influences might well have disappointed, but it was not long before the 330 GTC was hailed as the consummate road-going Ferrari, one combining Pininfarina styling, an attractive and comfortable interior, a superior ride and the power and flexibility of that marvellous V-12 engine using three twin-choke Weber carburetors. The final development of the “short block” V-12 engine was designed by Gioacchino Colombo in 1947, when the 330 GTC V-12’s cylinder block was redesigned to improve cooling, but it also used different mounts necessitated by the rear-mounted 5-speed manual transmission, which was driven through a torque tube. As its nomenclature signals, the GTC’s engine displaced 330 ML per cylinder, totaling 3,967cc, and it was rated at 300 HP. Its 275 GTB-sourced chassis featured the same independent front and rear suspension with unequal-length A-arms, coil springs, telescoping shock absorbers and 4-wheel disc brakes with dual circuits front and rear. Owned by a former Skip Barber Midwest series physician since 1981, this 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC was mechanically sorted by marque expert Terry Myr that same year. It was then cosmetically refreshed by Mike Keeves, who stripped the body to bare metal and refinished it in the Silver Metallic paint it still wears to this day. Passenger accommodations are the very definition of the timeless Ferrari grand-touring machine, offering comfortable bucket seats, the wood-rimmed steering wheel, the famously precise shifter in its slotted gate and Veglia instrumentation. The interior’s condition also speaks to the excellent care lavished on this car throughout its life, retaining the original red leather upholstery and exhibiting fresh-looking wood trim. Offered with power windows, air conditioning, restored Borrani chromed wire wheels and the original tool roll, this is a particularly attractive example of the period’s “best all around” road-going Ferrari.
F124 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible 194679S710164 $375,000.00 $450,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The L88 Corvette entered its third year of production in 1969 having established itself as all-conquering in both SCCA and FIA competition. Rated at a deliberately misleading 430 HP at well below its actual redline, the L88 pumped out an all-too-real 560 HP at full song and was as potent and race-ready as anything rumbling out of Detroit at the time. Proven in the heat of international competition as the most dominant Corvette ever, the L88 was still under the tight production reins imposed by GM management at its inception, and only 116 were built. Among the final-year L88 Corvettes was this unusually handsome convertible, which is now well-known in the Corvette community. Delivered new to its first owner in Leslie, Michigan, the Corvette’s equipment included the race-ready L88 427/430 HP big-block with first-design, closed-chamber aluminum heads, a Muncie M22 “Rock Crusher” close-ratio 4-speed and 4.56 Positraction rear end, K66 transistor ignition and J56 heavy-duty brakes. In addition, the owner chose the rare combination of Fathom Green paint with a matching Dark Green interior and a black soft top, matching green auxiliary hard top, clear glass, Rally wheels and redline tires. It is of particular interest that the car was also fitted with a heater, normally a deleted feature on L88 Corvettes. In the spring of 1969, the owner and his new L88 convertible embarked on a 6,000-mile round trip to Alaska. Upon his return, he sold the car to its second owner, who campaigned it with considerable success as a drag racer until placing it in storage in 1975. In 1986, highly regarded Corvette collector Vance Shappley purchased the car, immediately commencing a painstaking restoration that was completed in 1988. Shappley cared for the L88 for almost 30 years, during which time it was included in the 1988 and 2008 Bloomington Gold Special Collections, the original Earthquake 88 and 2008 L88 Invasion. Documentation includes the original tank sticker verified by NCRS historic document service, the Protect-O-Plate and the owner’s manual.
F125 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible 194679S726291 $375,000.00 $450,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Designed to dominate SCCA and FIA competition, the Chevrolet Corvette L88 burst onto the scene in 1967, immediately laying waste to the opposition and beginning a three-year run of supremacy that earned the car lasting status as the ultimate Corvette. Chevrolet’s claimed output figures of 430 HP at 5,200 RPM and 460 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM were both intended to mislead interested but uninformed buyers into thinking it was the lesser of the two most powerful big-blocks offered that year. The diversion was just one element in the Chevrolet Division’s concerted effort to keep the L88 out of the wrong hands and off the public roads where liability was a very real concern; in fact, when opened up with the addition of long-tube headers and not choked by the factory mufflers, the L88 cranked out closer to 560 HP at 6,400 RPM and 470 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 RPM. It was, in essence, a pure racing engine packaged with all the components needed to make it a viable competitor against any challenger, either foreign or domestic, a fact that prompted the test editors at “Hot Rod” magazine to declare in 1969 that using one on the street would be “sacrilegious.” Verified by prominent Corvette authorities David Burroughs and Tim Thorpe as the genuine article, this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible has earned Bloomington Gold certification, NCRS Performance Verification and the highly coveted NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence, one of the highest accolades in the Corvette collector community. One of only 116 built in 1969, the car shows just 46,000 miles. It is finished in Can Am White with a Saddle interior and comes with both a soft top and hardtop. In addition to its matching-numbers 427/430 HP engine and 4-speed, like all other L88 Corvettes it is also equipped with F41 Special Suspension, J56 Special Heavy Duty Brakes and Positraction. Documentation includes the original tank sticker, which is still located on top of the fuel tank.
F126 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air Restomod VC56B118395 $180,000.00 $240,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The ageless Tri-Five Chevrolets have consistently proven to be ideal raw material for a show-stopping Resto Mod, as this 1956 Bel Air hardtop aptly demonstrates. An estimated $300,000 was invested in the build of this incredible showpiece, which has taken home more than its share of hardware. The array of tasteful body modifications included shaving much of the stock brightwork, removing the front vent windows and grafting 1957-style ridges onto the hood. Custom, one-piece, stainless-steel roof moldings were fabricated and polished to match the remaining window moldings, slim-line Jaguar door handles were installed, custom motorcycle mirrors were added to the A-pillars, and Porsche headlight lenses were set back a full inch into the Frenched openings. The front grille was retained, though kicked out at the lower edge, and the rear bumper was notched to accommodate the twin chromed exhaust outlets. Subtle two-tone silver and green metallic paint and low-profile radial tires on Billet Specialties wheels round out the winning exterior presentation. The custom chassis is home to a sharply dressed Chevrolet LS1 5.7L/350 HP V-8 teamed with a 4L60E 4-speed automatic, triangulated 4-link rear suspension and Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes with vented rotors. The tastefully personalized interior properly reflects the exterior color scheme with custom upholstery by Paul Atkins Interiors of Hanceville, Alabama. Insulated throughout with Dynamat, the cabin also incorporates a smoothed dash containing Classic Instruments gauges and vents for the Vintage Air system. Other interior features include a tinted windshield, matching custom-fabricated center console, steering wheel, shifter and handles, a tilt Ididit steering column and a cleverly concealed Kenwood sound system. This stylish 1956 Bel Air has won a Builder’s Choice Award at Goodguys in Columbus, Ohio, Top 25 and Best Cruiser Awards at Shades of the Past Hot Rod Roundup at Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, a spot in “Street Rodder” magazine’s Top 100 and an NSRA Louisville Top 25 Pro Pick.
F127 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster 12104210016932 $110,000 $135,000 $97,900 -11% This 1961 example really stands out, not just for being a one-owner car until 2012, but also for its exceptional documentation, original tool kit and other accessories. In addition to its original drivetrain and factory-correct livery, its interior is of concours quality. The car also received a comprehensive tune-up in 2015. That a 190SL was chosen as the car in which Grace Kelly ferried Frank Sinatra in the 1956 movie “High Society” seems a perfect piece of automotive casting. Finally, consider this: when new, the 190SL was half the price of a 300SL Roadster; rejoice that it’s not so today.
F128 1997 G-Force GF01 Oldsmobile GF-001 $750,000 $850,000 $440,000 -41% Two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Arie Luyendyk—known to his legion of fans as the Flying Dutchman—captured victory in the 1997 running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing in this No. 5 Nortel/Sprint PCS Treadway Racing G-Force GF01 powered by a 4.0L Oldsmobile Indy Aurora V-8 engine. Finished in a red, white and blue livery, Luyendyk sped away from his pole position to lead 61 laps on his way to his second Indianapolis 500 victory over fellow Treadway Racing driver Scott Goodyear. This marks him as the only driver in the storied history of the Indianapolis 500 to capture the pole and then finish first in a 1-2 finish with his teammate. It was a well-deserved triumph, coming after rain delays that caused no laps to be run on the original race day and a mere 15 laps completed the following day. On day three, Luyendyk took home the spoils of victory—a swig of the traditional victory lane milk as well as prize money of $1,568,150. This car is the first G-Force Indy car—Chassis No. GF-001—ever built, and it was mated to the all-new Oldsmobile Indy Aurora V-8 powerplant. Luyendyk used this same car to score a win at the next race on the calendar, the 1997 Texas 500, a race famous for USAC scoring errors that originally had A.J. Foyt driver Billy Boat celebrating in victory lane. The Flying Dutchman loudly protested outside of victory lane, where he was quickly met by Foyt. The burly Texan—famous for both his sterling driving record and cantankerous nature—smacked Luyendyk to the ground and told him to leave. After review, it was determined that Luyendyk, not Boat, was the actual winner of the race. A third victory for this car, without any of the unwanted scoring snafu drama of Texas, came for Luyendyk the following year at the 1998 Las Vegas 500. Then, in 1999, current IndyCar team owner Sam Schmidt piloted GF-001 to his lone victory as a driver from the pole position—marking the car’s remarkable fourth win—in the Las Vegas 500. Looking like a rock star from an ‘80s hair band, Luyendyk was all business in the cockpit of an Indy car. His Indianapolis 500 career started fast as he garnered Rookie-of-the-Year honors with a seventh-place finish in 1985. Five years later, he captured his first Indianapolis 500 win over a stacked field of competitors. The 1990 finishing order behind the Dutchman was literally a who’s who of the sport with Bobby Rahal finishing second, Emerson Fittipaldi third, Al Unser Jr. fourth, Rick Mears fifth and A.J. Foyt sixth. All were former Indianapolis 500 winners, with two four-time winners in that group. Luyendyk was perhaps even better known for his qualifying prowess at Indianapolis than his racing success. A three-time pole winner in 1993, 1997 and 1999, Luyendyk’s most famous run did not net him the pole position, but, in 1996, he set a one-lap record of 237.498 MPH on the last lap of his run and a four-lap average record of 236.986 MPH, both of which still stand today. G-Force chassis GF-001 was restored by Treadway Racing and is immediately eligible for select vintage races, such as the SVRA Brickyard Vintage Invitational. While the Oldsmobile Indy Aurora V-8 engine is installed, the car is currently missing telemetry and an ECU, both of which can be built in order to put this machine into running order. It’s a celebrated occasion when an Indianapolis 500-winning car becomes available, and as the winning steed of a two-time Indianapolis 500 champion, this G-Force GF01 Oldsmobile Aurora Indy car is a rare find indeed.
F129 1997 G-Force GF01 Indy car GF-008 $100,000 $125,000 $82,500 -18% Scott Goodyear has become famous for close calls at the Indianapolis 500, where he was often close to claiming victory but just missed out on the glory of pulling into victory lane. The last of those near misses came in the 1997 Indianapolis 500, where Goodyear piloted this white and blue No. 6 Nortel/Sprint PCS G-Force GF01/Oldsmobile Indy Aurora V-8—Serial No. GF-008—to a close second-place finish to his Treadway Racing teammate Arie Luyendyk. Goodyear was leading the race with a mere seven laps to go when Luyendyk passed him on the backstretch and went on to capture his second Indianapolis 500 victory. For Goodyear, the trio of near misses is the story of his career at Indianapolis. The first of these came in 1992, when Goodyear used his Lola/Chevrolet that had started in last place—33rd on the grid—to improbably hound winner Al Unser Jr. and his Galmer/Chevrolet throughout the closing laps of the race. Goodyear started to pull alongside Unser at the famous Yard of Bricks as the checkered flag fell, and the resulting margin of victory was an incredible 0.043 of a second, a mark that still stands as the closest finish in Indianapolis 500 history. Three years later, Goodyear was the flag bearer for Tasman Motorsports, the fledgling Honda engine and an all-new generation of Firestone racing tires (yes, Goodyear was driving on Firestones) that gave him the speed to run at the front of the field on race day. Goodyear mistakenly passed the pace car on a restart with 11 laps to go. Even though he led 42 laps and was still in line for a good finish, Goodyear chose to ignore the black flags and was credited with 14th place when the officials stopped scoring him with five laps remaining in the race. This second-place-finishing G-Force was restored by Treadway Racing as a promotional display car with no engine currently installed. It is a fitting reminder of a career filled with close calls at the Indianapolis 500 for Scott Goodyear.
F130 1995 Lola T95-00 Menard 6002 $300,000 $400,000 $129,250 -57% After winning his initial Indianapolis 500 pole position a year earlier, Scott Brayton returned to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a similar machine. Brayton qualified his No. 2 car at more than 231 MPH, but Team Menard made the shocking decision to withdraw their already safely qualified machine from the race and give it another go in a backup machine. Locked in a duel with Arie Luyendyk for the pole position, Brayton rolled out very late in the day in the yellow and red No. 32 Glidden/Menards Lola T95-00/Menard-Buick. He rewarded the gutsy decision by rocketing the car to an amazing 233.718 MPH, the fastest four-lap average ever to win the top qualifying spot at Indianapolis, a record so impressive that it remains intact to this day. According to Indianapolis Motor Speedway Historian Donald Davidson, Brayton was very aware of his place in history as only the ninth man to win back-to-back pole positions. It was a feat that he relished so much that Brayton could name each of the other eight legendary drivers who shared this accomplishment. When he added his name to those of Ralph DePalma (1920-21), Rex Mays (1935-36), Eddie Sachs (1960-61), Parnelli Jones (1962-63), Mario Andretti (1966-67), A.J. Foyt (1974-75), Tom Sneva (1977-78) and Rick Mears (1988-89), Brayton knew he was joining an exclusive club of some of the greatest drivers to ever race in the Indianapolis 500. Unfortunately, the likeable driver would never get to lead the field to the green flag on race day in 1996. Brayton was fatally injured when he suffered a punctured right rear tire and crashed a backup car—this one, No. 23—during a practice run on Friday, May 17, 1996. Team Menard decided they would draft veteran driver Danny Ongais to pilot the car on race day. After assuming the pole position spot on the parade lap in honor of Brayton’s pole position run, Ongais started at the rear of the field in 33rd and finished a respectable seventh in the race. This car is immediately eligible for select vintage races such as the SVRA Brickyard Vintage Invitational. The Lola is missing its front telemetry wiring and its battery, which is normally removed to prevent damage but can be installed to put the car into running order. This missile-like Lola, with its powerful turbocharged Menard-Buick V-6 engine, stands as a fitting honor to the lasting memory of Scott Brayton.
F131 1995 Lola T95-00 Menard 6032 $250,000 $300,000 $129,250 -48% After years of putting their collective faith into the fast but fragile Buick engine, Scott Brayton and team owner John Menard came together in 1995 to capture the pole position for the Indianapolis 500. Setting a four-lap average speed of 231.604 MPH in his bright green No. 60 Quaker State/Menards Lola T95-00/Menard-Buick V-6, Brayton would start first in the world’s largest single-day sporting event ahead of a star-studded field that proved to be so competitive that Team Penske and its championship-winning drivers Al Unser Jr. and Emerson Fittipaldi—who between them had won the past three Indianapolis 500s—missed the show altogether. Lining up next to Brayton was Team Menard teammate Arie Luyendyk, a noted master of qualifying at Indianapolis. This was to be the first of two consecutive pole positions for Brayton, and it is fitting that he finally captured the top starting position with the Menard-Buick engine, a development of the turbocharged Buick V-6 stock block engine. It was Brayton’s eighth attempt with the powerful V-6 behind him; he had nearly won the Indianapolis 500 pole position 10 years earlier, qualifying second to fellow Buick pilot Pancho Carter. The 1995 race marked Menard’s sixth attempt with the Buick-derived engine, and he spent so much money trying to perfect it that his name eventually adorned the cam covers. Brayton’s father, Lee, himself a former IndyCar driver, ran Brayton Engineering, a company specialized in builds of the Buick V-6 engine for IndyCar competition. The Brayton family had invested years of blood, sweat and tears into making the Buick a contender at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. After teaming with Menard, the pole position was the long-awaited payoff for the Braytons. On race day, Brayton was befallen by a few problems that limited him to a 17th place finish. This car is immediately eligible for select vintage races, such as the SVRA Brickyard Vintage Invitational. Today, the Lola chassis is missing the front telemetry wiring and its battery, which is normally removed to prevent damage, but can be installed to put the car into running order. This is an Indy car that still looks sleek and purposeful today, powered by a Buick engine that allows a lucky pilot to imagine he is Scott Brayton leading the field at the Indianapolis 500.
F132 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L89 Coupe 194378S424867 $125,000 $175,000 $129,250 Mid This unrestored L89 Corvette offers collectors the prospect of owning not only one of the rarest and most original of its kind, but a multiple-award winner boasting a host of optional extras, a dazzling color combination and an odometer reading of a mere 5,300 original miles as well. It has been awarded Bloomington Gold Certification and membership in the Bloomington Gold Hall of Fame, and it has earned the NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence and 5-Star Bowtie Awards. Bill Davis of Hazard, Kentucky, purchased it new in 1968 at Music-Colvin Motors in nearby Prestonburg. It was in the Ray Norvall Collection from 1980 until 1996, when it was purchased by the Mike Yeager Collection, and it was subsequently in the Dwayne and Cindy Bublitz Collection until sold to the current owner in 2003. Featured in “Corvette Fever” and “Vette Vues” magazines, it retains its original Corvette bronze paint and matching Tobacco leather interior, and also remains in astounding overall condition. Its most tantalizing asset is the factory-original drivetrain headlined by the awe-inspiring L71 big-block V-8 engine, in this case one of only 624 fitted at the factory with the optional L89 aluminum cylinder heads. Built for both power and endurance, the L71 incorporated a stout rotating assembly comprising a forged steel crank in 4-bolt mains, forged steel rods and domed 11.0:1 aluminum pistons. Hidden by a chromed rectangular air cleaner, the L71’s triple inline 2-barrel Holley carburetors channeled the fuel/air charge through an aluminum intake manifold to cast iron rectangular-port heads with oversized valves actuated by a radical solid-lifter cam. Substituting the cast iron units with the L89 alloy heads saved a significant 75 pounds from the front end, but also added an extra dose of top-end power by virtue of larger exhaust valves. Documented with the intact window sticker, Protect-O-Plate and photo of the intact tank sticker, this L89-powered gem is further optioned with the Muncie M21 close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission, 3.55 Positraction differential, F41 suspension, off-road exhaust, power steering, power brakes, power windows, Soft Ray-tinted glass, rear-window defroster and AM/FM radio.
F133 1962 Chevrolet Corvette 20867S112173 $125,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Bloomington Gold Certification, NCRS Top Flight honors and a Chevy Vettefest Gold Spinner Award culminated in this 1962 Chevrolet Corvette winning the prized Triple Crown Award. Previously owned by a National Corvette Restorers Society judge, it is one of a mere 246 1961 Corvettes produced with the RPO 687 Heavy Duty Brakes and Special Steering option package, part of a comprehensive range of performance enhancements established by de facto Corvette Chief Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov through the heat of real-world competition. The Big Brake option was first offered in 1957 as RPO 684, labeled as Heavy Duty Racing Suspension. Development had begun much earlier as Corvette began establishing a winning reputation in SCCA competition, but the real advances came during fevered preparation for the Sebring 12 Hours race in March 1956. When Arkus-Duntov himself raced a Corvette mule around the Sebring circuit in February while waiting for the weather to clear for what would become his 150 MPH record run at Daytona, the track’s rough surface revealed pronounced inadequacies in suspension and brake durability. Several heavy-duty pieces were introduced in time for the Sebring 12 Hours, when Corvette took its first class win in FIA competition. By the time of the Nassau Trophy races in December 1956, the so-called “Big Brake” package was finalized. It included heavier front coil springs, five-leaf instead of four-leaf rear springs, a larger front sway bar, stiffer shocks, a quick-steering adapter, transversely finned brake drums with ventilated backing plates fitted with scoops over screened openings, internal cooling fans and special Cerametalix linings. Increasing displacement to 327 CI in the 1962 Corvette maximized the small-block V-8’s potential, especially in this Rochester fuel-injected version with 360 HP. Finished in black with a black auxiliary hardtop and black interior, and equipped with the requisite 4-speed and this example’s 4.11 Positraction rear end as well, this was the hottest Corvette offered to the public to that time.
F134 1929 Buick Master Six Sport Roadster 2217242 $40,000 $60,000 $38,500 -4% The 1929 Buick was a celebration for a number of reasons. For Buick, 1929 marked the company’s silver anniversary, and it celebrated that milestone with 43 exterior color combinations. This splash of color was enhanced by the fact that the 1929 Buicks were the first cars styled by General Motors new Art and Color Section led by Harley Earl. It’s no surprise that the 1929 Buick was a beautiful design, especially the open cars, illustrated by this restored Series 121 Model 44 Six Sport Roadster. This was not just a year for styling innovations and color. The entire chassis was improved by the use of a stiffer frame with deeper cross sections, Lovejoy shock absorbers and strengthened suspension components. The 121-inch wheelbase chassis is supported by blackwall tires on steel spoke wheels. The engine is the iconic 310 CI OHV inline 6-cylinder that produces 91 HP, and it’s backed by a 3-speed manual transmission with a floor shift. This 1929 Buick Series 121 Model 44 Sport Roadster is one of 6,195 produced, and it was once part of the Bill Harrah collection in Las Vegas. It was later purchased by Andy Granatelli of Indianapolis 500 racing fame, and its previous title is from the Granatelli Family Trust. The body is finished in Chermonte Cream with black fenders and green moldings. It is equipped with a rumble seat, step plate and golf bag door. Dual side-mounted spares accent the styling and are accompanied by a folding trunk rack, while wide, chrome-plated triple-bar bumpers brighten up the front and rear of the car. For additional safety, this Buick is equipped with accessory turn signals and tail lights. The interior is button-tufted tan leather, and a tan canvas-type top with a unique rear window design completes the stylish image. The owner of this youthful sporting roadster could not go wrong at any Buick club show or antique automobile tour.
F135 1936 Packard 1402 Limousine 14TH1402205 $75,000 $100,000 N/R $22,000 -71% Packard had a long tradition of identifying its cars by a series designation rather than by year; as such, the new Packards introduced in August 1935 were the 14th Series for 1936. The series was divided by engine and wheelbase, so the Eight was available in a 127-inch wheelbase for the 1400, a 134-inch for the 1401 and, the longest, a 139-inch wheelbase for the 1402 sedans and town cars. The basic styling of the Series 1402 sedans was very much the same as the 12th Series except for minor trim changes, but a few bare chassis were ordered with custom bodies. One of the most unusual examples of coachwork to appear on a 1402 Series Packard was this handsome limousine body built by Hooper & Co. in London on a special right-hand drive 139-inch wheelbase chassis. To date, the example offered here is the only Hooper-bodied 1936 Packard 1402 Limousine known to exist. The 1402 Series Packard chassis included a 320 CI inline L-head straight-8 engine producing 130 HP at 3,200 RPM with a Stromberg single downdraft carburetor. The drivetrain featured a floor-shift-operated 3-speed synchromesh manual transmission connected to a 4.69 gear ratio rear axle. The engine, starter, carburetor and mechanical brakes have been rebuilt on this beautiful black limousine. It has the standard 1936 Packard ride-control, Bijur lubrication and an accessory built-in jacking system, and 17-inch gloss black painted welded steel-spoke wheels carry 7.00×17 white sidewall tires. This Packard has dual side-mounted spare wheels and tires with accessory chrome-plated mirrors and a rear trunk rack. A single Trippe Speedlight adds flash to the front of the car. The interior is finished with pleated black leather in the chauffeur’s compartment and complementary blue wool broadcloth in the rear. The rear compartment features side and rear-facing opera seats, a division window and intercom. The interior wood trim has been refinished. This majestic and unique limousine would add a great deal of dignity to any collection or Packard event.
F136 1973 Datsun 240Z HLS30136576 $60,000 $75,000 $38,500 -36% In 2003, this Datsun 240Z emerged from a comprehensive restoration that included a bare-metal body strip down and refinishing to better-than-new condition. Twin Hitachi carburetors feed the 2.4L inline OHC 6-cylinder engine, backed by a 4-speed manual transmission that delivers power to the rear wheels. Equipped with power brakes, a set of front discs ensure confident braking, while the legendary handling of the Z sustain that confidence, creating a fabulous driving experience. The black vinyl interior looks every bit 1973 correct with one liberty: a clever and comfortably padded center armrest console complete with cup holders to make journeys even more enjoyable. The dashboard, switches and gauges all present beautifully, the quilted pattern on the console siding and door panels lending unique flair and texture. Outside, the orange paint pops with exceptionally deep shine, clarity and reflectivity, the brightwork lending to the cheery but competitive and sporty look that is bookended by a single exhaust subtly protruding from the left valance and period-popular slotted aluminum wheels shod with blackwall tires. Talk about having “the look”; this 240Z certainly does. The stance looks great, the color shines bright, the wheels are correct and it hits all the right buttons to reminisce about earlier times. When Datsun introduced the 240Z in late 1969, it was a magnificent blending of styles from Jaguar and Ferrari with a dash of Toyota’s 2000GT—all expensive cars that teased the imaginations of enthusiasts everywhere. Datsun intelligently priced the 240Z within $200 of the MG B GT, a popular car that was good looking and affordable. By the middle of 1973, Datsun introduced the 260Z, a car very similar to the 240Z but with a larger engine and revised carburetion to meet emissions requirements, meaning this example is one of the final iterations of the original concept.
F137 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback 8T02C196137 $180,000 $220,000 $126,500 -30% Few cars have stirred the American automotive soul like the 1967 Mustang fastback in the 2000 film, “Gone in 60 Seconds,” starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie. Created as a movie car star, the Mustang’s muscular looks were created by Hot Rod illustrator Steve Stanford, who characterized the movie Mustang as a Shelby GT500 on steroids with competition-style front valance, billet grille, unique headlight buckets with PIAA driving lights, humped hood, side exhaust, GT40-style wheels and Pepper Gray Metallic paint with black stripes. Former Boyd Coddington designer Chip Foose executed the designs in clay so that they could be used as molds for the fiberglass pieces that were installed during the movie car builds by Cinema Vehicle Services. This licensed Eleanor Tribute Edition was built from the body panels made from those original molds. The car was reportedly used as a non-functional prop during “Gone in 60 Seconds” filming and was never intended to be sold. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Cinema Vehicle Services along with recent licensing and registration by Eleanor Licensing LLC as an Eleanor Tribute Edition. A comprehensive restoration to road-ready condition has been performed by Performance Associates in San Dimas, California. This Mustang is powered by a 428 CI big-block with 850 CFM 4-barrel carburetor on an aluminum intake, Cobra finned aluminum valve covers and oval open-element air cleaner. Additional equipment includes a Toploader 4-speed transmission, 4-wheel disc brakes, 17-inch Eleanor-style wheels, LED cabin lighting, fire extinguisher and the iconic “Go Baby Go” button on the shifter knob, which is seen prominently in the movie. This fastback comes with its Eleanor Licensing Certificate, body plate, restoration photos, thick history file, framed “Gone in 60 Seconds” movie poster and autographed photos of Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie.

F140 1932 Ford Hi boy Roadster Spencer II 18-23210132S $400,000.00 $600,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Doane Spencer was one of those rare talents whose contributions to the car culture were of a truly pioneering nature. The Southern California native was a giant in the postwar SoCal Rodding scene, building, racing and constantly developing the 1932 Ford Roadster he bought as a teenager before the war and that has long been recognized as an all-time classic. The story of Spencer’s famed ’32 Hi-Boy leads directly to another Hot Rodding legend, Pete Chapouris of Pete and Jake’s Hot Rod Parts and SoCal Speed Shop fame, who was asked to restore the car in the mid-1990s shortly before Spencer’s passing. Chapouris completed this bittersweet task—he and Spencer had become friends over the years—in time for the car to win the Class R Historic Hot Rods class at the 1997 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. But that wasn’t the end of the story. In the early 1990s, Spencer had begun work for his friend, Darrell Brunn, on an updated version of his famous roadster, one that would follow in the first car’s footsteps while benefiting from the more than four decades of experience, innovation and design Spencer had amassed since those early days. Spencer had already designed the car and begun building it when he passed away in 1995, and Brunn then put it under wraps for the next 10 years before selling it to Kirk White. It was then acquired by Florida collector Dennis Higginbotham, who delivered it to Pete Chapouris at SoCal to once again uphold Spencer’s legacy. This was no casual decision; Higginbotham’s personal investment in completing Spencer’s master work finally totaled a cool $1.3 million. The Spencer II was also a labor of love for Chapouris, who spent countless hours poring over the unfinished details of the car as it slowly took form, trying to “feel” his way into communing with his departed friend’s spirit with the aim of finishing it as Spencer would have had he lived long enough. In fact, it took a dedicated three-man team working full time for 15 months to achieve their goal of realizing Spencer’s vision. The result is virtual perfection, a piece of automotive art that serves as a window on a Hot Rodder’s heart. Eschewing the chrome and sparkle typical of the breed, the Spencer II uses an original all-steel body and is loaded with touches that point to its creator’s true calling as a racer and engineer. The stainless-steel headers sprouting from the dyno-tested Roush 289/405 HP engine still bear their welding seams; the hand-forged steering links and independent front suspension are mounted out in front of the radiator for minimal polar moment, and custom scoops direct cool air to the rear hub bearings—the many race-oriented details invite hours of contemplation. Even the car’s rear axle housing and 4-speed manual transmission are one-off Doane Spencer creations. The quality of materials and finish that surround the Spencer II’s lucky occupants would make any artisan smile with admiration. The smell of private-aircraft-quality Saddle leather fills the cockpit. Details are subtle and clean: flawless stitching, taut surfaces on upholstery and metal alike; a 4-spoke steering wheel beautifully rendered in aluminum and exotic Bubinga and Ebony woods; and an engine-turned dash that is home to an impossibly rare set of Stewart Warner gauges of a type originally used in 1930s Brockway trucks. Doane Spencer’s creation may have been left to others to complete, but it has nonetheless taken its rightful place at the top of Rodding’s hierarchy, amassing multiple magazine features and covers, prizes and media appearances, and twice winning its class at the Grand National Roadster Show, the 2007 and 2008 AMBR Outstanding Class Award, and the 2008 AMBR Outstanding Engineering Award.
F141 1968 Plymouth Hemi Road Runner RM21J8G194977 $90,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Of the more than 44,000 Road Runners sold in that first year, only 840 coupes were endowed with factory Hemi power, including this beautifully finished 4-speed example, which remains visually faithful to original form but departs from stock with the voluminous 528 CI powerhouse residing within. Beyond the stainless TTi headers and exhaust system, there is no outward hint of any modifications; the original-style chromed air cleaner, dual inline 4-barrel carburetors and crinkle-finish flat black valve covers remain along with the heavy-duty Hurst shifted 4-speed manual transmission, but the extra 102 CI of displacement put this J-code Hemi Road Runner in a league of its own. Late ‘60s Mopar muscle benefited aesthetically from an excellent range of metallic finishes, including the beautiful Medium Gold Metallic paint decorating this example’s attractive sheet metal, its period-look redline radial tires on 5-spoke chromed styled road wheels over red-painted brake drums complete the presentation. Lightly optioned with power steering, a tinted windshield and a pushbutton radio, the car’s two-tone silver and black interior follows the same factory-stock approach, offering a split bench seat with date-coded seat belts, a padded dash containing a 120 MPH speedometer and 8,000 RPM tachometer, and heat and defrost.
F144 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 1F05J196544 $80,000 $90,000 $52,250 -35% A Deluxe Marti Report documents this 1971 Mach 1 as one of only 531 produced with the Drag Pack option, which supplied a high-performance rear-axle ratio while also upgrading the 429 Cobra Jet Ram Air engine to Super Cobra Jet status. From the factory, the Mach 1 was also delivered in the attractive color combination of Medium Blue Metallic with argent graphics and optional Mach 1 Sports Interior with two-tone white and granite upholstery. A ground-up restoration to Mustang Club of America concours judging standards has returned the Mach 1 to as-delivered condition, which includes a 4-speed transmission with Hurst shifter and 4.11 rear gearing. A rebuild of the 429 SCJ engine resulted in an impressive 416 HP and 475 lb-ft of torque. Based on 1971’s new “flat-back” SportsRoof styling, the Mach 1 was the top-of-the-line performance Mustang for 1971. Standard equipment included color-keyed front bumper and racing mirrors, black honeycomb grille and rear-panel applique, Competition Suspension, pop-open gas cap and fender decals. In the final year of big-block availability for the Mustang, the top engine option was the 429 Cobra Jet Ram Air, which breathed through functional NACA ducts in the hood. With the Drag Pack option, the 429 was transformed into a 375 HP Super Cobra Jet with solid-lifter cam, adjustable rocker arms and 780 CFM Holley 4-barrel carburetor along with bottom-end durability enhancements like cap-screw connecting rods and a modified crankshaft. In addition to the performance capabilities, this Mach 1 is also well-equipped with options from the factory, including power steering and front disc brakes, tilt steering column, AM radio with Stereosonic 8-track tape player, Convenience Group, rear spoiler and Magnum 500 wheels. Along with the two-tone upholstery, the Sports Interior adds a center console with clock, molded door panels, center gauge panel, wood-grain trim and a deluxe steering wheel.
F145 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible J59S106542 $90,000.00 $120,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Finished in the rare and desirable color combination of Frost Blue paint with a red interior, this 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has been awarded the National Corvette Restorers Society Top Flight Award. Comprehensively restored in the early 2000s, it has remained in excellent condition. With the experience gained in scoring wins in important international races such as Sebring and in SCCA national competition, Zora Arkus-Duntov continued to improve every aspect of Corvette performance. Extraneous exterior trim was removed, and interior features improved with redesigned instrumentation, a reverse lockout on the 4-speed shifter and redesigned seat coverings and door panels. Underneath, a pair of rear trailing radius rods was installed to reduce wheel hop under hard acceleration. Originally ordered new to compete in SCCA B Production racing, this 1959 Corvette demonstrates the thoroughness of Arkus-Duntov’s approach to an all-out competition version. It is powered by the most potent engine in the 1959 lineup: the RPO 579D 283 CI small-block V-8 rated at 290 HP at 6,200 RPM. Equipped with improved Rochester Ramjet mechanical fuel injection, 10.5:1 compression and the high-performance Duntov solid-lifter cam, the engine was fed fresh air through a front end duct, a system introduced the previous year on Corvettes with this high-output powerplant. Adding to the Fuelie engine’s potential is the RPO 686 metallic brake linings, this example being one of 333 produced with them in 1959. Offered only with a manual transmission—in this case, the BorgWarner 4-speed paired with a Positraction rear end—this high-horse Fuelie rides on bias-ply blackwall tires wrapping painted steel wheels with small-diameter hubcaps. The car’s all-business demeanor is supported by its radio-delete configuration and auxiliary hardtop. Finished in Frost Blue with a contrasting red interior—a very rare and desirable color combination for this model—this stunning example is an NCRS Top Flight-award winner.
F146 1963 Volkswagen Type II Transporter Double Cab 1139022 $75,000 $85,000 $74,250 -1% With room for five passengers, 1,000-plus pound hauling capacity and back-saving fold-down bed sides, this 1963 Volkswagen Transporter Double Cab was one of the last sold in America ahead of the 1964 Chicken Tax. The U.S. tariff was levied on European goods, such as light trucks, and effectively thwarted stateside Volkswagen commercial pickup and panel van imports. Far fewer Transporters made it over to the U.S. than the famously popular Type II VW Bus. The rare and practical pickup here has traveled about 10 miles since it was restored and modified into its current state by Penn-Dutch Restoration Services in Glen Rock, Pennsylvania. The restoration team stripped the body to bare metal all the way around, fitted the roof with a “cyclops eye” third headlight and professionally installed a fourth door sourced from a Type II Volkswagen Bus. White and salmon paint was laid down with precision from the body and bumpers to the undercarriage. Original factory equipment and VW custom culture tradition come together in the cab from the new headliner to the leather and cloth-upholstered bench seats. Front Safari windows open for ventilation, and the bed features Zebra wood slats for stylish protection. A 1968cc/110 HP air-cooled flat 4-cylinder engine transplant more than doubled 1963 horsepower specification. Velocity stacks on twin Weber carburetors flow fuel and air into the 92mm thick-wall cylinders, and a Pertronix Flame-Thrower billet distributor ignition provides the spark. An EMPI floor shifter gets the power down to the road through a Freeway Flyer 4-speed transaxle and dual-mass flywheel clutch combination. A new battery and 60-amp alternator work together for heavy-duty 12-volt power supply. The Transporter Double Cab is ready to haul on EMPI BRM Fuchs-style aluminum alloy wheels outfitted with radial tires.
F147 1967 Gerhardt Indycar C-71 $125,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This stylish 1967 Gerhardt Ford Indy Car was driven by “Mr. Clean” Al Miller in the 1967 Indianapolis 500 and is one of a mere 11 examples built by Fred Gerhardt in Fresno, California. Miller—who was born Albert Krulac and finished fourth in 1965 at Indianapolis—started the 1967 running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing in this car in the 33rd and final position on grid, finishing 28th after completing only 74 laps due to an untimely oil leak. Car owner Walter “Wally” Weir originally entered the Gerhardt Ford in the 1967 Indianapolis 500 for Ferrari Formula 1 star driver Lorenzo Bandini. Those plans changed when the charismatic Italian was fatally injured in a crash at the Monaco Grand Prix in early May 1967, just days before his Indianapolis assignment was to begin. Weir did not have a backup plan for the talented Bandini, but veterans Bill Cheesbourg and Miller both drove the car in practice sessions, with Miller successfully qualifying the car for the race. Previous owners of this striking machine include Dudley Higginson, Chuck Haines, Charles S. Hayes, Jimmy Brokensha and Mike Canepa, while the current owners are Jack Murray and the estate of the late Keren S. Babcock. Today, as in 1967, the No. 32 racer sports a unique red and white checker livery—reportedly painted in that fashion to attract Ralston Purina sponsorship that never materialized, though it did find sponsorship in an 11th-hour deal with Cleaver-Brooks for the Indianapolis 500. The Gerhardt chassis was restored to its original 1967 race specification in the late 1990s by Brokensha, while the 255 CI DOHC four-cam Ford Indy V-8 engine was rebuilt by Ed Pink Racing Engines of Van Nuys, California, in 2018. The car retains its Halibrand 2-speed manual transmission, USAC Registered Serial No. C-71, Simpson safety belts, clear windscreen, Schroeder Star of David magnesium racing wheels and Firestone racing tires. Vintage photos, newspaper articles and engine restoration receipts document the car’s history. Sold on a Bill of Sale, the Gerhardt Ford has been displayed at Historic Indy Car Exhibitions in 2015, 2016 and 2019, as well as the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance in 2019, and it is immediately eligible for select vintage races such as the SVRA Brickyard Vintage Invitational.
F148 1963 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster 12104210022714 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1963 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Roadster presents beautifully in a classic white exterior with a red interior. The Mercedes-Benz 190SL would experience a production run that lasted from 1955-1963, averaging an annual output of just 3,235 units. The Mercedes-Benz reputation for quality was already ingrained into the American buying public, and the 190SL did not disappoint with its reliability and durability. Its voluptuous body design closely paralleled its big brother, the 300SL, making it an instant automotive status symbol. Although it was referred to as a roadster, the 190SL was far more sophisticated than its British rivals and was fitted with such amenities as roll-up windows, high-quality leather seats with multiadjustability, full instrumentation and the choice of an optional hardtop and premium sound system. Although the Mercedes-Benz 190SL cost half as much as its sibling 300SL, it was by no means an inexpensive car in its day. Priced comparable to a Porsche 356 Super 90 Cabriolet, the 190SL catered to the same demographic that appreciated Teutonic engineering and craftsmanship clothed in a stylish and sporty body shape. The 190SL roadster’s 1900cc SOHC inline 4-cylinder engine fitted with twin side-draft carburetors produced 120 HP, and the transmission was an all-synchromesh 4-speed manual. The front suspension was of double wishbone design, and the rear suspension featured a swing axle arrangement. The build quality and attention to detail on this series of Mercedes-Benz was world class, and it is for these reasons that the 190SL has experienced such a strong resurgence in its popularity and restoration incentive. This Mercedes-Benz 190SL comes well equipped with the optional large-window removable hardtop, period-correct Becker Highway AM/FM radio, VDO instrumentation, in-dash clock, front and rear bumper guards, body-color matched hubcaps, chrome trim rings and Goodyear Polyglas white-stripe tires.
F150 1953 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster E53F001299 On request On request Not sold Not sold N/A The popularization of European sports cars in America was already well underway when GM Design Chief Harley Earl arrived at the 1951 Watkins Glen International Sports Car Grand Prix to oversee the display of his Buick Le Sabre concept car. However, his focus soon turned to the flock of racing machinery that assembled for the race. The spectacle of the race left a deep impression on Earl that he took back to corporate headquarters, where he tasked his styling department with drafting a small, inexpensive sports car with a clearly American character. With the enthusiastic backing of GM President Harlow Curtice and Chevrolet’s top executives, Earl’s creation famously debuted on November 13, 1953, at the GM Motorama in New York City, establishing the signature blend of Polo White paint, red interior and black soft top that completed all 300 of the first-year Corvettes. The Corvette, however, ran into increasing internal resistance as it stumbled out of the gate, and it would require the efforts of Earl, incoming Chevrolet President Ed Cole and engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov to remain faithful to the cause until it took flight on its own. From 1956 on, Corvette has remained a fixture as America’s Sports Car, and that first edition continues to enjoy great appeal with collectors. No. 299 of the 300 built, this 1953 Chevrolet Corvette was purchased by the seller’s father in the early 1980s with a plan to display it in the family home as an “objet d’art.” Instead, it was placed in storage, where it remained after it was passed on to the son in 2004. Once the Corvette was removed from storage in 2016, it received a thorough mechanical inspection. The triple-carbureted 235 CI Blue Flame Six was rebuilt, the Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission and brakes were serviced, and the seats and carpets were replaced. Otherwise unchanged, this penultimate 1953 Corvette has passed the years in fine fashion as a wonderful artifact of Corvette history.
F151 2013 Dodge Viper SRT GTS 1C3ADEBZ6DV400319 $90,000.00 $110,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Even as Dodge was switching off the lights in 2010 at its assembly plant at Connor Avenue in Detroit, Fiat CEO and devout Viper fan Sergio Marchionne was preparing a clay model of a new Viper to show his dealer network in anticipation of his beloved muscle car’s rebirth. Scheduled for the 2013 model year, the new-generation Viper would satisfy Marchionne’s yearning for a return to the more sensuous shape of the earlier generations, yet with a complete makeover rendered mostly in carbon fiber that better suits the car’s venomous nature—think sculptured hood vents, a NACA intake duct and LED head and tail lights that light up in a snakeskin pattern. Beneath that was an all-new, stiffer and lighter steel space frame, track-ready all-independent suspension and Brembo all-wheel disc brakes. Beneath the new Viper’s one-piece carbon fiber hood was the same all-aluminum 8.4L V-10, improved with a stiffer block casting, forged Stahl pistons, port fuel injection, a lighter valvetrain and sodium-filled exhaust valves, all conspiring together to push a pounding 640 HP and 600 lb-ft of torque through the Tremec 6-speed gearbox. An aluminum flywheel and composite intake shaved 25 pounds from the engine assembly, and the passenger compartment was better insulated from the enveloped side exhaust. With an original MSRP of $142,490, this 2013 Viper SRT GTS Coupe sports the GTS package’s full leather Laguna interior package complete with Sabelt Laguna leather seats and Alcantara headliner, carbon fiber panels, dual-mode touring and sport suspension, red brake calipers and the multi-spoke 18-inch front and 19-inch rear alloy wheels wearing monstrous Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires. The car was also optioned with the Track Package, which added upscale Stop Tach two-piece performance brake rotors and a special suspension with Bilstein shock absorbers and stiffer spring rates. Finished in black with gunmetal stripes currently wrapped in red, this Viper SRT GTS coupe shows just 10,252 miles and was equipped with $17,000 in factory options, including an 18-speaker Harmon Kardon stereo.
F152 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod 20867S103791 $175,000 $225,000 $154,000 -12% This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible represents the purist’s approach to creating a Resto Mod of superb quality that preserves its origins while taking full advantage of modern high performance. Corvettes of every vintage are attention-getters, and more than 55 years later, the 1962 model has lost none of its appeal. This example makes a great first impression with its two-tone pairing of gray metallic paint and silver coves complemented by excellent chrome and U.S. Mag Halibrand-style wheels carrying Bridgestone Potenza tires. A subtle detail difference can be found up front, where 1961-vintage chromed headlight surrounds and fender spears were substituted in place of the original body-color pieces. Out of sight is the powder-coated gloss black frame fitted with RideTech adjustable coilover suspension, Wilwood vacuum-assisted power disc brakes with vented and cross-drilled rotors and black-painted calipers, and a high-performance fuel pump supplied by Tanks, Inc. Introduced in 2008 Corvettes, the car’s all-aluminum LS3 6.2L small-block V-8 engine incorporates careful upgrades that include a correct ECM harness, Hooker Block Hugger tube headers and a Pioneer Camaro SFI harmonic balancer. The completed engine compartment features chromed ancillaries, including the Vintage Air air-conditioning compressor, alternator, drive pulley and intake tube, and a custom oversized aluminum radiator by Mattson’s Inc. A Tremec TKO6 5-speed manual transmission and neat stock-appearing Hurst shifter handle the transfer of the LS3’s 430-plus HP to the rear wheels. Upholstery wizard Ron Mangus of Ron Mangus Hot Rod Interiors in Rialto, California, skillfully stitched the Corvette’s two-tone leather interior, personalizing it with custom-sculpted seats, dash padding and door panels, a leather-wrapped factory-style steering wheel and a center console. In addition to both a renovated auxiliary hardtop and a new folding soft top, this sharp 1962 Corvette Resto Mod’s upgrades include a Dakota Digital gauge cluster, a JVC Sirius XM Bluetooth stereo system and a Rockford Fosgate prime sound amplifier with subwoofer.
F153 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS 124378N430758 $90,000 $120,000 $88,000 -2% A ground-up restoration was recently completed on this incredibly original 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS396, which shows just 10,100 believed-original miles on the odometer. A two-owner example that was stored by its original owner from 1973 until his passing in 2012, the car retains many crucial original components, most significantly the original matching-numbers drivetrain comprising the high-performance L78 396/375 HP big-block V-8 engine, Muncie M21 close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission and 12-bolt G80 Positraction rear end with factory 4.56:1 gearing. The car’s L78 engine and M21 transmission were rebuilt by marque specialist Camaro Hi-Performance. A Certificate of Authenticity prior to the restoration from Camaro Hi-Performance described the Camaro as “a very honest original car with an extraordinary history and integrity.” Correctly refinished in the original LeMans Blue with white striping and a black interior, it is also equipped as original with power brakes, exterior Style Trim Group, Special Interior, center console with Special Instrumentation, AM radio, rear-seat speaker and redline tires. The restoration to as-original condition included installing a new Gardner exhaust system and replacing the factory smog-control system, which was removed by the original owner along with the original and rare fan blade, fan clutch, rear shock absorbers and other items as part of a general “Day Two” overhaul that was common practice in the classic muscle car era. The extensive list of original components (with dates) includes the heads (April 23/68), exhaust manifolds (April/68), Holley carburetor (April/68), distributor (April 17/68), alternator (April 30/68), brake booster (March 4/68), voltage regulator, “OL” radiator tank (April/68), front spiral shocks, all five factory wheels and bumper jack. One of very few original-drivetrain 1968 L78 Camaros still in existence, this rare SS396 was purchased new at McIntyre Chevrolet in Cumberland, Maryland, in May 1968, and it’s exceptionally well documented with paperwork that includes the window sticker, dealer invoice, sales contract and warranty book with Protect-O-Plate.
F154 1985 Renault Alpine GTA VFAD50005G0030010 $30,000.00 $45,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This highly original and unrestored 1985 Renault Alpine GTA shows just more than 28,600 original kilometers—17,771 miles—and presents in well-preserved condition. The Alpine brand was originally started in 1955 as a racing tuner of Renault-based automobiles. Alpine would eventually build its own rear-engine sports car using Renault drivetrain that proved to be extremely successful in both sports car and rally racing. Although the Alpine brand was eventually acquired by Renault as a corporate off-spring to perform both the production of limited-edition sports cars and act as a “skunk-works” for research and development, it did allow a generous amount of autonomy to the Alpine works located in Dieppe, France. The 1985 Renault Alpine GTA is a shining example of ingenuity and fresh design. This 2+2 coupe has a rear engine, rear transaxle drivetrain supported on a rigid-backbone frame. The composite body is aerodynamically efficient with a .28 coefficient of drag, and the car weighs in at a trim 2,447 pounds. Powered by a 2.8L/156 HP Renault V-6 that was shared with Peugeot and Citroen, the 1985 Alpine GTA delivers performance considerably faster than that of an equivalent-year 944 Porsche S4, as evidenced by the comparative 0-60 MPH acceleration times: 7.6 seconds for the Alpine and 9.1 for the Porsche 944. Largely a hand-built car, the Alpine factory produced little more than three units per day. Only a handful were imported into the U.S., making them a rare sight in the American automotive spectrum. This particular 1985 Renault Alpine GTA was imported into Canada in the early 1990s. Finished in Pearlescent White with a gray cloth interior, this Alpine comes equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox, AM/FM Cassette stereo, power-assisted windows, original wheels and Michelin TRX tires.
F155 1951 Jaguar Mark V DHC 647465 $80,000 $100,000 $77,550 -3% The considerable achievements and prowess of the MkV Jaguar are often overshadowed by the XK120, which stole the limelight at the 1948 London Motor Show where both made their debut. While Jaguar boss William Lyons saw the XK120 as a limited-production prestige sports car, useful for brand awareness, he intended the MkV to spearhead exports in the company’s drive into the emerging luxury sedan sector. The MkV not only opened up the development path for future generations of Jaguars with independent front suspension, sturdy cruciform-braced chassis and full hydraulic braking, but also delivered coachbuilt elegance and luxury in a factory-bodied package at a little more than one third of the price of the humblest Bentley. More than 10,000 MkVs were produced from 1949 through 1951, nearly two thirds of those for export, and most of those for the United States. While sedans accounted for more than 90% of production, the magnificent three-position drophead coupe was truly exclusive. Just 977 3.5L dropheads were built, of which 840 were exported. This 1951 drophead coupe is a stunning example, sumptuously appointed with a leather interior and walnut trim, and it was restored with no expense spared. At its heart is the 3485cc pushrod overhead-valve straight-6 that powered the immortal prewar SS100. With its 126 HP rating, it will whisk the MkV to 91 MPH, with roadholding, ride comfort and handling that earned the accolade of “world class.” British magazine “The Motor” summed up the 3.5L MkV thus: “The combination of performance, refinement and stamina which it offers is altogether outstanding.” Despite superficial similarities with the MkIV, the MkV is a revelation by comparison. The MkIV was a stopgap, prewar hangover model, the MkV being a developmental step-change combining prewar elegance with postwar engineering and dynamics. Perhaps most remarkable in its day was that the MkV drophead could be had new for a quarter or less of the price of a coachbuilt Bentley or Rolls-Royce convertible. It was a truly outstanding machine.
F157 1965 Porsche 356C Coupe P717550222142 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1965 Porsche 356C Coupe is a matching-numbers example that has traveled just 22,287 believed-original miles and presents in a stunning factory-correct Bali Blue contrasted with a light gray leather interior. It is equipped with a set of the ventilated chrome wheels with flat hubcaps adorned with the center Porsche cloisonné crest. The interior features perforated leather seating surfaces, German squareweave carpet and VDO instrumentation. Model year 1965 would be the swan song for the Porsche 356, and history has proven it to be the most evolved, improved and refined of the lineage. The accumulation of all the tribal knowledge acquired through literally millions of road and racing miles was integrated into this final version, including 4-wheel disc brakes and a customer choice of the two highest horsepower-rated engines ever offered on this model. The 1600cc horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine is legendary for its performance, reliability and longevity, and it was instrumental in creating the quality reputation for Porsche. The 356 body was largely hand built and required skilled craftsman using time-honored methods to achieve the overall shape. Attention to detail was evident throughout with tight and uniform panel gaps on the doors, trunk lid and engine lid. The 356 would go through numerous evolutionary changes on the body shape originally designed by Erwin Komenda, Porsche’s chief body designer during the 356 era. This final iteration of the 356 body—internally referred to as the T-6—featured larger glass area on the front windshield and rear window, twin air-grilles over the engine compartment, a fender-mounted gas lid and a resculpted hood and decklid. Only 1,100 of the 356 coupes and 588 cabriolets were manufactured in 1965, making each of them exceptionally rare and desirable. This car is documented with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
F158 1970 Chevrolet K5 Blazer Restomod KE180S173843 $90,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A In 1969, Chevrolet introduced the Blazer, an all-terrain vehicle with more creature comforts than most of the competition on the market. Here’s a new take on that tradition, a no-holds-barred Resto Mod 1970 Blazer built for comfort, performance, cruising and show prowess unlike any other. Built for the 2018 SEMA Show, this Blazer is powered by a 6.2L GM LS3 engine dressed with aluminum and chrome, including a polished serpentine belt kit and Aeroflow billet valve covers, and Candy Burgundy paint adorns the block of the Blazer. The builders performed a rotisserie restoration on the vehicle, employing a new, custom chassis with Slam Specialties air bags, Fox shocks all around, Mustang II power rack-and-pinion steering, CPP steering shaft and U-Joint kit, and a Wilwood 4-wheel disc brake system complete with a CPP Hydrostop master cylinder. Speed Engineering long-tube headers help the 6.2L breathe better while a stainless-steel exhaust finished with Borla Mufflers sounds great. A narrowed K15 12-bolt rear end takes power from the 6L80 transmission, a unit that has also been painted Candy Burgundy to continue the silver-burgundy motif. The interior is a study in materials usage, design and execution. Procar bucket seats and a custom center console give the Blazer an unexpected, sporty look with a luxurious pattern that matches the door panels. The carpeting matches the red color, and the dashboard has been smoothed over, a large Samsung Bluetooth-capable tablet offering driver vitals and controls for the various systems. Entertainment is courtesy of a Rockford Fosgate Audio, and all the electricity is powered by a PSI stand-alone wiring harness. A Boyd Coddington Chinook steering wheel is perched atop the CPP classic-fit steering column, matching the Coddington Chinook V3 Wheels in Cerakote Finish wrapped with Toyo Proxes STIII tires. In terms of flow and theme, this Blazer is unmatched—the builder went to great lengths to ensure that each piece had at least a design link, a relation to another, which lends to an extremely clean, orderly presentation. Having already won multiple awards, it’s time for this Blazer to get out and win some more.
F159 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 20867S104396 $100,000 $125,000 $101,750 Mid A multiple-award-winning restoration, matching-numbers fuel-injected engine, low mileage and a rare combination of options give this 1962 Chevrolet Corvette tremendous appeal to the discerning collector. Advertising for the 1962 Corvette emphasized its appeal to the Walter Mitty in all of us, heralding its “uncanny ability to erase the day’s woes and whisk its driver far, far away. Turn on the key, engage first gear and step on it: Good-bye office, hello better things in life.” And in 1962, Corvette’s ability to transport its occupants into new realms of performance and ecstasy was further enhanced by the most-potent array of powertrain offerings in the car’s then 10-year history, all centered around the new 327 CI version of Chevrolet’s outstanding small-block V-8 engine. Combining the best performance to date with style and sophistication, this 1962 Corvette retains its matching-numbers RPO 582 Rochester fuel-injected 327/360 HP V-8, the most significant improvement to the 1962 models. Another feature important to collectors is this example’s power-operated white soft top, one of only 350 produced in 1962 and the last available until the C6 was introduced in 2005; the original color-matching auxiliary hardtop is also included. Attractively finished in classic Ermine White with a black interior, its list of features includes a 4-speed manual transmission, whitewall tires, standard full-spinner wheel covers, a Wonderbar radio, an in-dash clock and a heater/defroster, offered for the first time as standard equipment. This is a truly accomplished multiple-award winner whose accolades include: Bloomington Gold certification; an NCRS Top Flight Award; an NCRS Performance Verification Award; a NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence award with a remarkable score of 99.3 out of 100 points; a Chevy VetteFest Gold Spinner Award; and AACA Junior, Senior, Senior National and Senior Grand National awards. At 11,225 documented original miles, this expertly restored 1962 Corvette hits all the right notes as a premium collectible American classic.
F160 1968 Ford Mustang Trans Am 8F01C202465 $60,000 $80,000 $22,000 -63% In June 1969, Ford engineer and race car builder and driver Jim Harrell positioned his 1968 Mustang in the 20th spot on the Trans Am grid at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. Harrell and his race-prepped hardtop took their place among the Trans Am series’ greats: Mark Donohue, Parnelli Jones, George Follmer, Jerry Titus and Peter Revson. Donohue’s Penske-Hilton Racing teammate Ronnie Bucknum—a veteran of Indianapolis 500 competition—took his first of two wins that year, besting Bud Moore Racing teammates Jones and Follmer. Although Harrell’s Mustang fought the good fight for 90 laps, it eventually dropped out with a DNF, yet still earned its place in history as a true Trans Am race car that competed at the 1969 Mid-Ohio race. Harrell built the Mustang in 1967 and drove it during the 1967-69 A-Sedan seasons, finishing fourth in the Central Division in 1969. The Mustang was then sold to fellow Ford engineer Bill Barr, who raced it into the 1970s. A subsequent owner restored the hardtop in 1989 for vintage racing. Verified by Mike Mulcahy Motorsports as a true historic Trans Am Mustang and also certified by the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association, the hardtop is finished in its racing colors of yellow and black, similar to the iconic scheme used on Jerry Titus’ 1967 Tran Am championship Mustang. It is equipped for vintage racing with a competition-prepared 305 CI V-8 engine, 4-speed transmission, roll bar, racing bucket seat, 5-spoke aluminum wheels with Hoosier race tires, and a quick-fill fuel inlet in the trunk lid. Offered on a bill of sale, the former Jim Harrell Trans Am Mustang comes with documents and Group Six certified Historic Medallion No. 6-0106 certificate. The car has been featured in two books, Dr. John Craft’s “Mustang Race Cars” and Alex Gabbard’s “Fast Mustangs.”
F162 1960 GMC Grumman Olson Panel Van P1502N3338B $70,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A A unique trend in automotive customizing is to leave the exterior patina that decades of exposure and use have adorned a vehicle with, restoring the interior and chassis to provide a comfortable environment and safe driving experience. Such is the case with this unusual and rare GMC Grumman Olson Panel Van. The chassis boasts an Air Ride independent front suspension with rack-and-pinion steering, Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes, a fabricated Ford 9-inch rear end with 3.25 Positraction gearing and 31-spline Currie axles with a 4-link setup. Powered by a blueprinted 383 CI stroker engine that’s been dyno tested at 466 HP, the car features an FTI 700R4 transmission that harnesses and delivers the power to the rear, moving the panel van effortlessly down the road. Inside, custom red seating upholstery with diamond-stitched seats matches the dash pad, and Vintage Air, a custom-built floor complete with wheel tubs, carpeting, a television and more create a truly fun environment for cruising. The wheels feature custom wood-grain paint with chrome elements and whitewall tires that stand out well against the industrial-looking exterior. Indeed one of a kind, this GMC Grumman Olson is something that isn’t likely to be seen again anytime soon, and it’s certain to be the only one at car shows, cruise-ins and rolling down the road. Grumman Olson began making bodies in 1946, and in 2003, Grumman Olson was sold to Poindexter, which renamed the brand to Morgan Olson. The company’s delivery vans have been seen all around the U.S. and Canada in various shapes and sizes. This particular model is the Kurbside, featuring a stylish front end that curves back to the roof and rear wheel wells that eased back toward the rear bumper instead of being a blunt half circle. It was one of the most stylish of the Grumman Olson vans ever built, and it’s exceedingly hard to find today.

F164 1954 Ford Crestline Sunliner U4KC130342 $80,000 $100,000 $66,000 -18% Ford’s Sunliner convertibles of the 1950s offered great American tradition, but this wonderful top-shelf 1954 Crestline example also makes the most of Street Rodding’s present direction. In fact, this Ford is the culmination of a five-year rebuild by Ray Bartlett of East Coast Hot Rod Garage in Denton, Maryland, featuring extensive changes without diminishing the original release’s styling cues. The result has been featured in “Street Rodder” magazine (January 2019) and awarded honors at Columbus Goodguys (Cool Custom and Top 10 Builders Choice), Syracuse Nationals (Best Ford-In-A-Ford) and Pigeon Forge (Goodguys Award for Design). Today, a custom-built 351 CI Windsor engine is under the scoop-topped hood, accented with an Edelbrock intake manifold, Edelbrock 650 CFM carburetor and reworked Sanderson headers with 2.5-inch stainless-steel exhaust. Backed by a Ford automatic transmission complete with overdrive re-engineered by Performance Automatics, a Ford 9-inch rear with 3.50 gears and Strange axles connects to it by a custom driveshaft. The body is covered in rich blue paint with a custom tan interior and the Haartz canvas top handmade by Dean Alexander. The rear quarter panels are carefully modified by raising the wheel openings and adding a body-side bead to match the front wheel openings. Underneath is an Art Morrison custom chassis with a Morrison-designed independent front suspension featuring tubular steel control arms with matching spindles, plus an anti-roll bar combined with RideTech coilover shocks linked to power rack-and-pinion steering. Wilwood 12-inch drilled and vented disc brakes with Wilwood calipers are on all four wheels. During its upgrading, the car received a new floor, firewall, inner fender panels, radiator support and radiator cover, all of which were hand fabricated. Interior comforts include the Ford Crestline 16-inch steering wheel from Lime Works, Vintage Air with custom-fabricated vents, brushed-metal dashwork and luxurious upholstery. A car with a reconditioning that has already been nationally heralded, this wonderful Sunliner showcasing these better ideas will have onlookers asking, “have you driven a Ford, lately?”
F165 1962 Chevrolet Corvette 20867S110863 $110,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is among the rarest and most desirable of the final-year solid-axle Corvettes as it’s one of only 246 factory fuel-injected examples also equipped with the RPO 687 Heavy Duty Brakes and Suspension package. This comprehensive option package endowed the 1962 Corvette with the superior handling, braking and durability required to meet the demands of full-bore high-performance driving and track duty, and because Chief Corvette Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov insisted on balanced performance, it was only available with the RPO 582 327/360 HP small-block V-8 and Positraction rear end. The 1962 Corvette was outwardly little changed from the 1961 model, which had introduced the “ducktail” rear styling that foreshadowed the new 1963 Stingray coupe and convertible. The stainless-steel trim that had defined the Corvette’s body-side coves since 1956 was dropped in favor of a simple bead line in the fiberglass body panels, a change that eliminated two-tone paint schemes. Headlight bezels were painted body color instead of chromed, rocker-panel trim strips made their first appearance, and the side cove vents featured bright comb trim in place of the previous years’ three chromed spears. The most significant change came under the hood, where the workhorse 283 CI small-block was replaced with the marvelous new 327 CI version that delivered an increase in peak output from 315 to 360 HP in fuel-injected versions. The recipient of a frame-off restoration to correct specs completed over the course of 26 months, this immaculate 1962 Corvette Big Brake Fuelie is powered by a period-correct 327/360 HP V-8 engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission backed by the aforementioned Positraction third member. Combining beautiful Sateen Silver paint with a red interior, it is completed with Firestone tires on a matched set of factory-original 5.5×15-inch wheels, as well as both soft and auxiliary hard tops, creating an altogether striking example of the racing-grade 1962 Corvette.
F166 1971 Chevrolet K10 Pickup KE141S664271 $75,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A While all postwar generations of Chevrolet’s light-duty pickup trucks remain popular with today’s collectors, the “Glamour Series” 1967-72 models continue to enjoy particularly strong demand, thanks to their clean styling, excellent engineering and sheer drivability. Offered in “C” 2-wheel drive and “K” 4-wheel drive forms, these Chevrolet pickups and their GMC-branded counterparts spearheaded the fast-growing trend to more comfortable and car-like pickups that were still capable of handling rough duty as required. Available with a choice of handsome Fleetside and traditional Stepside cargo boxes on long- or short-wheelbase chassis frames and featuring many powertrain combinations, these classy haulers also offered a growing list of comfort and convenience options to suit virtually any buyer’s needs. By 1971, Chevrolet was the first pickup truck manufacturer to offer standard front disc brakes, and when production ended, the C/K “Glamour” trucks set new records for production and sales at Chevrolet. Featuring a frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration completed in 2017, this 4-wheel drive 1971 Chevrolet K10 pickup truck is a very attractive example with just 352 post-restoration miles on the odometer. Accented by chrome and bright trim that has been restored or replaced with new items, this K10 has been repainted in its original, special-order Olive Green and white two-tone livery. Factory-style finishes, markings and labels are present within the nicely detailed engine bay. Power is delivered by the original drivetrain comprising the 350 CI V-8 engine and automatic transmission. Desirable features include an AM radio, dual exhaust, power brakes with proportioning valve, power steering, tinted glass and the comfort of air conditioning supplied by a Vintage Air system with a modern-type compressor. Originally sold at Courtesy Chevrolet of Phoenix, Arizona, this highly collectible and enjoyable 1971 Chevrolet K10 pickup is accompanied by the original owner’s manual, warranty booklet with first owner’s name recorded inside and the Protect-O-Plate.
F167 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Pace Car Convertible 124679N640930 $90,000 $110,000 $71,500 -21% One of 3,675 produced, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Pace Car Edition is a genuine RPO Z11 example that was upgraded to the L78-spec 396/375 HP big-block Mark IV V-8 as part of a frame-off nut-and-bolt restoration. A 4-bolt-main engine with Winters aluminum heads and a Holley 4-barrel carburetor on an aluminum intake, this was the most powerful engine available in a regular-production Camaro in 1969, when Chevrolet’s fledgling pony car made its second appearance as the Indianapolis 500 Pace Car in the three years since its introduction. With the obvious exception of the COPO limited-production cars, the Pace Car was the rarest Camaro in what is widely acknowledged as a vintage year. The Z11 Pace Car package was offered only on convertibles equipped with the combined SS and Rally Sport packages comprising hideaway headlights, a blacked-out grille, bright wheel-arch and beltline trim, SS badges, heavy-duty suspension, power front disc brakes, special simulated hood intake grilles, F70 tires and simulated rear-fender louvers. That’s a great package right out of the gate, one made better by the choice of this car’s big-block powerplant, Muncie 4-speed manual transmission and 12-bolt Positraction third member. The Z11 Pace Car option was distinguished by its Dover White paint and Hugger Orange striping, white soft top, cowl-induction hood, Rally wheels with Goodyear Polyglas rubber, chromed dual exhaust tips and exclusive Orange Z87 Custom vinyl interior with houndstooth inserts. In addition to power steering and front and rear bumper guards, several optional extras include a rear spoiler, Soft Ray-tinted glass, 8,000 RPM tachometer, console with U17 Special Instruments, wood-grained steering wheel and a Delco AM/FM radio. This is a well-restored 1969 Pace Car Edition, finished to exceptionally high standards.

F168 1957 Chevrolet 150 Resto mod A57L193894 $65,000.00 $85,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The 150 was Chevrolet’s entry-level model and one of the lowest-priced cars in America in 1957. With the new-for-1957 styling, it was a tough bargain to beat, luring people who otherwise might not have considered a new car into showrooms to see what could be had on their budget. Oftentimes, those who purchased a 150 model were pleasantly surprised with the quality of car they bought for the money they spent. For Hot Rodders and drag racers, however, the 150 was the car to have. It was a very lightweight car, thanks to its spartan nature of few amenities and features, which allowed it to make the most of the power available to it. That said, this 150 Resto Mod brings the idea of a lightweight Hot Rod to life with a fuel-injected 364/400 HP V-8 engine topped by a Magnuson supercharger and backed by a Corvette 6-speed manual transmission. Kept cool by twin pusher fans and an aluminum radiator, the scene under the hood is as detailed and presentable as the rest of the car and features a dazzling amount of polished aluminum and painted surfaces all around. With less than 2,500 miles on the frame-off restoration and an engine-out servicing in 2017 at 1,000 miles, this red-on-red 1957 Chevrolet begs to be driven, its custom, Jet Hot coated exhaust itching to let out a throaty growl that will let everyone know this is no longer the economy car it once was. Boasting Paul Newman Corvette suspension, steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes, it handles much more compliantly than it would have back in the day. That behavior is furthered by low profile Goodyear run-flat tires on Corvette wheels. Inside, passengers will adore the air conditioning system, power windows, power locks, custom stereo system and supportive seats with custom-patterned upholstery.
F169 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Convertible WDBBA48D5HA070845 $50,000 $75,000 $40,700 -19% Sold new at Leitzinger Imports, Inc., in State College, Pennsylvania, this 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Convertible remains unrestored to this day and presents in impeccable condition evidencing a history of careful ownership. The 560SL capped a run of V-8-powered SL series cars that began with the 350 introduced in 1971 and then proceeded through 380, 450 and 500 variants, each one with more displacement than the last. Produced exclusively for North America, Australia and Japan, the 560SL had the stout heart of a muscle car and the refined road manners of a European grand tourer befitting its lineage. Its all-aluminum 5.6L (more precisely, 5547cc) SOHC V-8 engine gained the extra advantage of Bosch’s computer-controlled K-Jetronic fuel injection for 227 HP. The accompanying 4-speed automatic transmission proved an excellent choice, taking full advantage of the engine’s considerable torque and enabling crisp shifting in either auto or manual modes. While certainly orthodox, the 560SL’s front wishbone and rear semi-trailing-arm suspension, with coils all around, benefited from years of refinement that—combined with the car’s rock-solid steel unibody—gave surprisingly precise handling for its weight class. The car’s 4-wheel disc brakes featured vented front rotors, vacuum assist and ABS as standard equipment. There was more refinement inside the familiar interior, which featured the trademark padded leather steering wheel, more bolstering in the leather-covered bucket seats and well-placed controls. This highly original Signal Red 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Convertible has been particularly well-kept, with all mechanical systems having undergone a recent comprehensive mechanical service and inspection by a qualified marque expert to ensure proper performance. The 560SL is offered with both hard and soft tops, the original leather interior, a Becker Grand Prix radio, first aid kit, alarm system, tool kit and spare, top carrier and car cover. Showing 66,960 miles on the odometer, this Mercedes-Benz convertible is ready to show a new owner what made it so popular in the first place.
F172 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible 338677Z116699 $40,000.00 $60,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Sold new at Big 2 Oldsmobile in Mesa, Arizona, this 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible was produced at Lansing with the optional L66 Turnpike Cruiser option package. Developed by Oldsmobile engineers to meet a mandate set by Chief Engineer John Beltz to increase fuel economy and usable performance while minimizing noise, vibration and exhaust emissions, the Turnpike Cruiser option was available only on the Cutlass Supreme models—the sports coupe, holiday coupe and convertible. Departing from the industry convention of reducing displacement, Oldsmobile tapped its 400 CI V-8, tailoring it to work in concert with a requisite variable-vane Turbo Hydra-Matic 3-speed and extra-low 2.41:1 rear-end gearing. The Turnpike Cruiser’s 400 was equipped with a 2-barrel carburetor, 10.5:1 compression, dual exhaust and a special short-duration, mild-lift hydraulic cam that delivered 300 HP and increased peak torque to 425 lb-ft at just 2,600 RPM—excellent for sustained turnpike cruising. The package also employed Climatic Combustion Control, which used a special air cleaner with a valve-and-diaphragm system that mixed underhood air with preheated air ducted from the exhaust pipe to maintain constant carburetor inlet temperatures for more accurate metering and, therefore, better fuel economy and lower emissions. The Turnpike Cruiser option also borrowed the 442’s heavy-duty springs, shocks, sway bars and wheels to maintain stability at highway speeds. This handsome and sporty 1967 Cutlass Supreme convertible was treated to a comprehensive restoration. Its Bimini Blue metallic paint is sharply complemented with a white on blue deluxe interior featuring thin-shell Strato bucket seats, a center console with Jetaway shifter, tinted glass, deluxe seatbelts, pushbutton radio with power antenna, and a power top. Additionally optioned with power steering and brakes, factory air conditioning, power trunk release, chromed window sill trim, door-edge guards and wire wheel covers over wide whitewall tires, this 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible is documented with the sales invoice and a copy of the original title.
F173 1974 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster UE1S25858 $50,000 $75,000 N/R $50,600 Mid This 1974 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster sold new at Valley Imports in Neenah, Wisconsin, was a one-owner car until 2018. Showing a believed-correct 43,043 original miles, it is offered with an extensive service and maintenance history. The Series III E-Type was the first in the line’s history to use the turbine-smooth V-12 engine introduced in 1971. The V-12 had its roots in an early design produced in 1954 that was intended to power the company’s Le Mans racers, but when Jaguar dropped out of racing after the 1956 season the project was shelved. In 1963, Jaguar purchased Coventry Climax, whose technical team included original XK engine designers Walter Hassan and William Haynes. Development of the V-12 concept then resumed, with the focus once again on producing a racing powerplant, specifically a 5.0L unit with dual overhead cams, dry-sump lubrication, Lucas mechanical fuel injection and a factory rating of 502 HP at 7,600 RPM and 386 lb-ft of torque at 6,300 RPM. Fortune intervened once again when the Jaguar XJ13 Le Mans prototype serving as the V-12’s test bed crashed heavily in testing, eventuating the entire project’s demise. The project produced substantial lessons, however, that led to the design of the Series III E-Type’s V-12, the development of which was aimed at maintaining the E-Type’s performance in the face of increasingly rigid emissions standards. The final design incorporated flat-top combustion chambers, two valves per cylinder and single overhead cams, all in service to minimizing complexity, weight, size and noise. This 1974 Series III Roadster retains its original 5.3L V-12 and 4-speed manual transmission, just two of many fine attributes that include its lovely pairing of Green Sand paint and Olive leather interior. Equipped with chromed wire wheels, Smiths instruments and factory air conditioning, this Series III shows evidence of careful, ongoing maintenance in both its clean presentation and extensive service documentation that includes the original purchase agreement.
F174 1932 Chrysler CP Coupe Restomod 7526053 $60,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A As most 1932 Chrysler customers opted for the big sedan, this second-series CP Coupe Street Rod is a rarity as one of 502 produced, one of just three known to exist today and quite possibly the only one restored and refined into a well-balanced blend of definitive style and high-performance engineering. Expert-level restoration and subtle customization earned the coupe multiple event awards, including Best Modified Chrysler. The long nose, low-slung body created by Cord L-29 designer Alan Leamy is considered a Chrysler styling benchmark. A Chrysler gazelle hood ornament leads the way over the split vee grille with inset 8 logo, and a split front windshield offers a commanding view over the road. The body is outfitted with dual side mirrors, optional cowl-mount Trippe lights, running-board step plates and dual tail lights. Front and rear twin-bar bumpers offer stylish protection. The modernized powertrain features a 355 CI V-8 crate engine good for a nearly three-fold increase over the original L-head straight-8. The stock Chrysler original-style shifter is linked up to an automatic transmission for smooth power delivery to the rear wheels, and upgraded front disc brakes on a drop axle bring the big Chrysler back down from speed. The classic and contemporary balance continues in the tan upholstered cabin. A genuine wood-rimmed banjo steering wheel on a tilt column is a great complement to the wood-grain dash and garnish moldings. The engine-turned elliptical instrument cluster is outfitted with Dakota Digital gauges, and a Kenwood receiver delivers stereo sound. Low-back bucket seats and three-point seat belts provide comfort and safety. The Chrysler rolls in authoritative luxury on widened steel wire-spoke wheels with a staggered-aspect front and rear whitewall tire combination.
F175 2000 Plymouth Prowler 1P3EW65G7YV605077 $25,000 $35,000 $27,500 Mid Presented in the two-tone color combination of black over mind-bending Chameleon, this 2000 Plymouth Prowler has traveled only 13,325 miles from new. Like the name suggests, the Chameleon paint changes colors depending on the angle of the viewer and the available light, going from blue to purple in a fluid motion for a remarkably unique viewing experience. The front bumpers have been removed and the rear bumpers have been painted, lending a subtle change that adds a cleaner overall image. Powered by a 24-valve, 3.5L High Output V-6 with an Autostick 4-speed automatic transmission, the Prowler is equipped with air conditioning, power 4-wheel disc brakes, power steering, power locks, power mirrors, power windows and an AM/FM cassette stereo system, among other creature comforts. The chassis is sprung with an independent front and rear suspension and staggered 17- and 20-inch chrome wheels wrapped in new radial tires with wide footprints, all of which work in unison to provide exceptional handling and predictability. Dual exhausts with chrome tips look fabulous, but also sound fantastic without being intrusive, which was part of the beauty of the Prowler—it was a Hot Rod that could be driven daily, thanks to the solid drivetrain, creature comforts, outstanding chassis and exceptional manners. The black leather seats are embossed with the Prowler logo and a column-mounted Auto Meter tachometer details out the specified nature of this factory Hot Rod. The 2000 model year would mark the last time the Prowler would wear the Plymouth name, moving over to Chrysler for 2001 and 2002. When it debuted for 1997, the Prowler caused quite a commotion, with its performance increasing so that the later cars were capable of 0-60 MPH in just under 6 seconds and could find a top speed of more than 120 MPH. With only a hair more than 11,000 built, they aren’t getting any more plentiful, and finding one with the low miles and a unique paint combination like this car makes it even more intriguing.
F176 1962 Chevrolet Impala Restomod 21847L171867 $50,000 $75,000 $35,200 -30% In 1961, Chevrolet largely cast away the chrome-laden styling of the 1950s, embracing a trimmer, sleeker look more in tune with what people were thinking better reflected the future. The Jetsons were in, rear fender tail fins of any style were out. The Impala featured a number of unique features that nodded away from the past and ushered customers into an exciting new world of space travel and efficient pod living, but in 1962, Chevrolet really pushed the effort. The Impala hardtops received a new “C” pillar design offering a little more privacy while subtle ribs in the roof eluded to the appearance of a convertible with the top up. It was a game-changing year at Chevrolet, and this 1962 Impala Resto Mod fabulously blends original designs with modern engineering, ultimately creating a vintage Chevrolet that looks as though it’s only been lightly altered. The result of a ground-up build, the body is coated with a dark metallic gray that highlights the subtle nuances of the car with remarkable ease, bringing out the natural beauty. Polished stainless trim and new chrome bumpers further accentuate the subtlety Chevrolet was seeking in its design, but set against the darker gray paint, they stand out with wonderful presence. Inside, passengers will love the interior that’s largely been restored to 1962 specifications, yet also features understated alterations and additions, like Dakota Digital gauges and a Bluetooth stereo system, that conspire to make this Impala more enjoyable, comfortable and easy to drive. Powered by an LS V-8 engine and a 4L60E automatic transmission, the Impala moves like never before, while a Hotchkis suspension and staggered 18- and 20-inch Foose wheels wrapped with low-profile tires help the full-size cruiser handle curves and corners with more modern assurance, harnessing all the power under the hood and offering drivers more control. The future was more about refinement and restraint over garish and boisterous treatments, and this is one Resto Mod Impala that plays on those notions.
F177 1980 Land Rover Defender 110 SALLDHMG7AA189344 $130,000.00 $160,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1980 Land Rover Defender was imported from the United Kingdom and has been comprehensively restored and upgraded with several custom modifications that include the latest technology and electronics. Its 3.9L Land Rover V-8 engine was rebuilt with new components including: programmable fuel injection; a new fuel pump, pressure regulator, lines and sender; rebuilt Bosch starter and alternator; new mounts and harness; all-new cooling and ignition systems; stainless-steel exhaust and a new catalytic converter Y-pipe. The driveline has been renewed with a rebuilt automatic transmission, linkage and transfer case, as well as new transmission and transfer-case mounts, cooler and lines. Both the front and rear axle assemblies and driveshafts have been rebuilt, and the suspension has been treated to new front and rear radius-arm bushings, new springs and shock absorbers, and new steering linkage. The front brake pads and rotors, rear brakes and wheel cylinders, and master cylinder are also new. The electrical system features new chassis and lighting wiring, halogen headlights, and LED lighting in all other standard outlets, including tail lights, turn signals, brake and reverse lights and marker lights. This Defender is well-prepped for off-road use with new 10-ply General steel-belted radial heavy-duty tires on reconditioned wheels and an interior-exterior roll cage passenger-protection system. The nine-passenger cabin offers every convenience imaginable in an all-new environment that includes new heated seats and mounts, tinted windows, insulated roof and floors, new carpeting, and new upholstery throughout, including on the headliner, dashboard and trim panels. A custom center console and dash binnacle have been installed to accommodate a broad range of electronic upgrades, including an MB Quart sound system, dual USB chargers, Bluetooth, GPS, backup camera with Samsung Android video display, text reception and playback, all controlled by a voice activated media head. A new air-conditioning system and heater matrix ensure passenger comfort in any climate. A Puma hood, roof and bumper-mounted driving lamps, rear work lamp, front winch and tubular rear bumper complete this go-anywhere, nicely equipped 1980 Land Rover Defender.
F179 1961 Chevrolet Impala Bubble Top 11737N171869 $70,000.00 $90,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A It’s largely agreed that the Bubble Top Impala is one of the best-looking Chevrolet designs ever, making it popular with customizers and restorers alike. The same year Chevrolet introduced the 409 CI V-8 engine, Dan Gurney—with the help of Bill Thomas and Bill Fowler—modified a ’61 Impala 409 to “Go Jaguar Hunting” in the sedan races, showing the world that Chevrolet had indeed built a world-class performance sedan. However, while they could move well and looked great, today’s technology has the power to make these good-looking Bowties even more enjoyable; as is the case with this 1961 Impala Bubble Top. Powered by a 502/500 HP V-8 Chevrolet crate engine with aluminum heads, a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Flowmaster exhaust system and 700R automatic transmission, the car is also equipped with an aluminum radiator with dual fans to keep it all cool. An Air Ride four-corner suspension provides the stance, while power steering and power brakes with front discs make the big car easy to maneuver and enjoy. Inside, tan power-operated leather seating with custom gathered inserts, a custom center console, matching door panels, tinted power windows, a tilt steering column with custom Billet Specialties steering wheel, digital gauges and Vintage Air bring this Impala into the new millennium while retaining the classic looks that made it an immediate design legend. Presented in House of Kolor Brandywine Kandy paint, the look is subtle and even a bit retro, but with a modern flair. Rolling on Intro Wheels and low-profile tires, this Impala is likely to offer a driving experience that Chevrolet never imagined possible in 1961, blending excellent looks with fine performance, hallmarks that Chevrolet has maintained a reputation for over the decades. Gurney could do some serious hunting with this Impala, but cruising the scene in the leather-clad comfort of this fine machine could be just as enjoyable.
F180 1967 Ford Mustang Resto Mod 7T01T132993 $70,000 $90,000 N/R $28,600 -59% The practice of filling a Ford engine compartment with Chevrolet small-block power dates back to the 1955 introduction of the 265 CI V-8, but the combination typically involved dropping Chevrolet’s “Mouse Motor” between the rails of a Model T, Model A or early flathead Ford. The advantages were obvious: a lightweight, powerful engine in a lightweight platform, an abundant supply of factory parts and aftermarket performance components, an almost unlimited choice of configurations, and ease of maintenance, repair and modification. Those advantages remain, but they have been translated into a whole new generation of possibilities created by the lasting popularity of Ford’s early Mustangs and Chevrolet’s all-aluminum Generation III LS engine. In this case, the formula combines a 1967 Mustang and a rebuilt LS1 engine with polished aluminum valve covers, K&N cold air intake and 3-inch mandrel-bent X-pipe exhaust, a mixture that opens the way to serious performance. The LS1 is backed by a Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission with new Hayes clutch actuated by a hydraulic slave cylinder. A Currie Industries 9-inch rear end with 3.73 Auburn Positraction provides the final drive. Welded subframe connectors, a strut tower brace, quick ratio rack-and-pinion steering, a Global West 4-link rear suspension with Panhard bar and rear anti-sway bar, 4-wheel power disc brakes with proportioning valve, RideTech adjustable coilovers on all four corners and low profile rubber on polished 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust II wheels come together for lightning handling response. Other mechanical upgrades include a high-capacity aluminum radiator with electric relay controlled fans, braided stainless clutch, brake and fuel lines, and a trunk-mounted battery. The Mustang’s eye-popping PPG Torch Red paint and pleasing brightwork are matched with a black interior featuring new Momo Super Cup XL front seats, a back-half roll bar with new G-Force five-point racing harnesses, a stock back seat, polished billet steering wheel and a tunnel-mounted E-brake.

S32.1 1977 Italy car GP Racer 1/2 scale $60,000 $80,000 $44,000 -27% The 1976 Formula 1 World Championship—in which Niki Lauda came within a point of winning the title—was one of the most riveting championship races ever. A horrific, fiery crash that led to terrible injuries kept Lauda from winning the title from the charismatic James Hunt, but it didn’t hold him back from life. In fact, the legendary driver would go on to become a three-time World Champion, the first two of those titles captured with Ferrari in 1975 and 1977, and a third with McLaren in 1984. As a team leader in recent years, he helped right the ship at Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, convinced star driver Lewis Hamilton to switch teams and ushered in one of the most dominant showings by a team in the history of Formula 1. This particular half-scale Grand Prix Racer by Italycar was built in 1977 to commemorate Lauda’s brave run for Ferrari during the 1976 season. Only 12 of these special racers were built, and Italycar went out of business soon thereafter. There are three things that are absolute about the Italycar half-scale Grand Prix Racer: one, they’re very rare; two, the level of detail is absolutely astonishing; and, three, they were incredibly expensive when they were new, costing $6,995. The Italycar half-scale Grand Prix Racer is quite literally a miniature Ferrari 312T2 Formula 1 car featuring a fully independent suspension with adjustable sway bars and coilover springs configured just like the Grand Prix cars. It features scaled-down Goodyear tires, hydraulic disc brakes, Veglia gauges and a MOMO steering wheel among other intricate details, all scaled down by half to create an absolutely correct miniature copy of Lauda’s race-winning Ferrari. Powered by a 2-cylinder, two-stroke BCC engine with a 2-speed transmission with a reverse gear, it won’t move like the original, but as small and low as it is, it might feel just as quick. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a remarkable tribute to a fabulous car, one that was raced by the iconic and inspirational Niki Lauda.
S33 1951 Jowett Jupiter Convertible E1SA61 $30,000 $40,000 $49,500 24% Purchased in 1975 by noted restorer Reg Gilbert and restored in the 1980s, this Jowett Jupiter convertible has covered only 19,000 believed-original miles. The opposed 1486cc 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission were highly technical in their day, and they propelled the Jupiter very well, sustaining the Jowett’s competition prowess. The body is made of aluminum and mounted across a unique semi-space frame with an adaptable chassis that gave it such a formidable reputation in motorsports. Established in 1901, brothers Benjamin and William Jowett, along with Arthur Lamb, produced motorcycles, a venture that evolved into building V-twin engines for larger driving vehicles, and by 1904, they became the Jowett Motor Manufacturing Company. The first Jowett car was built in 1906, and after a slow start, automobile production increased. Following World War II, Jowett struggled for successes, but the company was moving in a new direction with modified designs and drivetrains from the prewar days. One of those included the streamlined Jowett Javelin, which had many advanced features, including a flat 4-cylinder engine, independent front suspension and unitary body construction. It could achieve about 80 MPH and offered terrific handling, and it proved its worth well in various races. In 1950, Jowett introduced the Jupiter, again, upping the ante with an exceptionally well-engineered chassis and performance wrapped in a fabulously styled body. Well appointed, the Jowett Jupiter offered buyers a lot of car for the money, but by this point, sales were beginning to flatten out. Various ideas were tried to entice coachbuilders to buy chassis and expand on what could be had, but it was relatively fruitless. By 1955, Jowett entered into voluntary receivership and ceased production. But for a moment, a relatively long moment at that, Jowett put a number of people on wheels for a very reasonable price and showed hope for an exciting future.
S34 1953 Singer 4AD Roadster L4AD1717V $15,000 $25,000 N/R $23,100 Mid George Singer had been making bicycles since 1874 with the goal of making them safer, easier to maneuver and, if possible, faster, although that wasn’t a requirement. His innovations largely groomed what would become the modern bike as we largely know them today, and his company weathered a number of storms, including a £600,000 loan by noted financial fraudster Ernest Terah Hooley and an economic slump in 1898 that eliminated a number of bicycle makers. By 1901, Singer began producing motorbikes using Perks & Hooch Motor Wheels, which he purchased the rights to. The one-cylinder engine was unique in many ways, one of which was that it used a magneto ignition. The company and engines evolved over time, though World War I temporarily suspended motorcycle production. After the War, Singer bought a number of companies throughout the 1920s for their engineering accomplishments, enhancing them and reengineering them, moving into the motorcar business as his company built larger engines. A hallmark of virtually anything with the Singer name was a reputation for a solidly built product, which ranged from the early bicycles to the automobiles. This 1953 Singer 4AD Roadster features a 1.5L/58 HP inline 4-cylinder engine with a 4-speed transmission, and it’s one of only 3,450 built with the 1.5L engine. Signal Red paint coats the aluminum body, and the interior creates a complementary color combination. Featured with brown upholstery, the dashboard is a beautifully varnished wooden slab with lovely gauges nestled within. Riding on an independent front suspension, the 4AD Roadster was built from 1939-1956 in Coventry, England, and it won the hearts of many. Lucille Ball and Marilyn Monroe are both seen in photographs with Singers, lending them a little celebrity status back in the day. This example benefits from new tires having been installed in 2017, a rebuilt fuel pump and servicing to the brakes and carburetor.
S35 1957 Heinkel Kabine 1534867 $25,000 $40,000 $27,500 Mid After a successful career as the chief designer for Hansa-Brandenburg Aviation during World War I, Ernst Heinkel established his own firm in 1922. Having developed air-powered catapults to launch short-range mail planes from the decks of ocean liners, the company also produced the Heinkel He 70 Blitz high-speed mail plane and airliner for Deutsche Luft Hansa, the plane breaking a number of air-speed records for its class. World War II brought about opportunities to produce advanced aircraft for the notorious Luftwaffe, including the only operational heavy bomber in the German arsenal, the Heinkel He 177. At the end of World War II, Heinkel moved into producing personal land transportation for the masses, including the Heinkel Tourist scooter, which was introduced in 1953. Considered to be “The Rolls-Royce of Scooters” in England, the Tourist was upscale, more expensive and heavier than many of the other offerings of the day. However, the Tourist was more comfortable than any of its competitors, and because of its weight, it proved to be a more stable proposition as well. By 1956, Heinkel introduced its own Kabine Model 150, which shared the engine used by the Tourist. In 1956, Heinkel brought about the Kabine Model 153 with three wheels and the Model 154 with four wheels. Both used larger 204cc engines initially, but the company later offered the 198cc for insurance purposes. Using a unit body, the steering wheel did not hinge outward like an Isetta, which made ingress-egress a little more challenging with the steering wheel staying in place. This 1957 Heinkel Kabine is a Model 153 three-wheeler presented in light blue with a black sliding convertible cloth top and plaid interior. A wonderful example of a unique and rare bubble car, this one features the Heinkel’s reverse gear, something not often seen on these micro cars.
S36 1966 Ford Bronco U14 U14FL802422 $70,000.00 $80,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Off-roading in America began soon after World War II, quickly becoming a well-organized and widespread sport that had its official kickoff in 1965 when Californian Brian Chuchua sponsored the off-road Riverside Grand Prix held in a partially dry riverbed near Riverside, California. By then, Ford was already preparing to introduce the first so-called “sport utility vehicle” to compete with the Kaiser Jeeps, International Scouts and Toyota Land Cruisers then dominating the off-road fraternity. Named “Bronco,” it was Ford’s first dedicated 4-wheel drive utility vehicle, and its design showed Ford was serious about improving on the competition. Its mission was to appeal to both hardcore off-road enthusiasts and potential new owners, including a growing women’s market, which was more interested in such a vehicle as a family grocery-getter and, in many cases, a status symbol of the new suburban commuter. The Bronco embodied all the qualities requested by the public in extensive market research. It was compact, having been built on a sturdy box channel frame with a 92-inch wheelbase and measuring just 152 inches long overall. Its 170 CI OHV inline-6 and smooth-shifting 3-speed synchromesh manual transmission had already been proven in the Falcon and Econoline, and a simple floor-mounted lever operated the transfer case. Heavy-duty coil-spring front and leaf-spring rear suspension provided a smooth ride on roads and highways while also giving ample ground clearance. The Bronco lacked the idiosyncrasies of its competitors while offering a pleasant ride and more comfortable passenger accommodations, as demonstrated in this very attractive first-year half-cab model, an uncut example that received a frame-off restoration in 2018. Presented in two-tone red and white paint with white front and rear bumpers and grille insert and whitewall tires on white-painted wheels with full wheel covers, it retains the original matching-numbers 170 CI engine backed by a column-shifted 3-speed transmission. This evocative and charming first-year Bronco is still fresh after its restoration and is detailed throughout.

S38 1976 Porsche 930 930 680 0236 $100,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Inspired by the monstrous and all-conquering turbocharged versions of the legendary Porsche 917, Zuffenhausen was driven to continue turbocharger development to its logical end in high-performance road cars. The result was soon-to-be legend, the most powerful and luxurious production car ever built by Porsche—the 930 Turbo. Affectionately nicknamed the “Widowmaker” for its unique and spirited driving characteristics, the 930 Turbo was unlike anything else on the road. Available only in coupe form, the finished car was a masterwork of engineering involving far more consideration of performance and durability than was obvious to the naked eye. The U.S.-spec 3.0L flat-6 engine developed 234 HP at 5,500 RPM, but it could rev to 6,800 RPM and was virtually bulletproof. Porsche also developed a new stronger 4-speed transaxle and single-disc clutch for both the production and future racing Turbos. The rear hubs, bearings and suspension arms were also designed as much for racing Porsches as for the 930, and they were derived from the legendary 917. Suspension geometry, vented disc brakes and damping were drawn from the Carrera RS and RSR, and so, of course, were the Turbo’s dramatically flared fenders and prominent whale-tail spoiler. But, inside was the most luxury ever poured into a Porsche: leather upholstery, air conditioning, deep-cut pile carpeting and Porsche’s trademark driver-friendly controls and instrumentation. This fabulous 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo is one of 530 produced for the U.S. market. It is in superb condition after a documented restoration completed at an investment of more than $50,000. Its restoration included a bare-metal repaint in the original black and a rebuild of the 3.0L engine. In addition to the Turbo-spec Fuchs wheels with Kumho radial tires, it offers halogen headlights, well-bolstered leather Sport seats, an electric sunroof and power windows. Documentation includes restoration receipts and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The urge to go canyon carving in this Widowmaker is nearly irresistible.
S39 1965 Lancia Flaminia 826030001693 $40,000 $60,000 N/R $40,700 Mid The Flaminia was Lancia’s flagship luxury model produced from 1957-1970, the replacement for the outgoing Aurelia. Offered in three basic presentations—sedan, coupe and cabriolet—the Flaminia was designed and coachbuilt by the most prestigious Carrozzeria in Italy, including Zagato and Touring, with the coupe specifically coming out of the famed Pininfarina firm. The Lancia Flaminia was strikingly similar to the Lancia Florida II prototype, not much of a surprise as it was a personal favorite of Pininfarina founder Battista Farina, who regularly used the prototype until his death in April 1966. Shorter than the Florida II and featuring a B-pillar, the two-door Flaminia adopted numerous other elements over its inspiration, such as framed door glass, door vent windows, a steeper windshield rake and a bigger air scoop, at the request of Lancia. Although it was produced for 13 continuous years, there were only 5,236 Flaminia coupes ever made, with only 1,085 of those examples equipped with the more desirable 2.8L engine fitted in this car. Mounted longitudinally and powering the rear wheels through a 4-speed rear-mounted transaxle, the Flaminia’s engine was an evolution of the world’s first production V-6, introduced in the Lancia Aurelia produced from 1950-58. The 2.8L V-6 introduced in 1962 with a triple-barrel carburetor was an improvement over the prior 2.5L single-carburetor engine of 1957-62, offering 136 HP when paired with the coupe body form. This particular 1965 Lancia Flaminia Coupe was designed and coachbuilt by the world-renowned Pininfarina, and it’s instantly recognizable by its iconic C-pillar that seamlessly flows into and forms the upper fender fins of the rear quarter panels. Its drivetrain consists of a front-mounted longitudinally positioned 2.8L V-6 engine, a 4-speed manual gearbox and a rear-wheel drive differential. Finished in silver metallic with a contrasting red leather interior featuring a 220 KPH speedometer and Nardi Torino steering wheel, this is a true Italian classic.
S40 1973 Citroen SM 00SD0265 $75,000 $100,000 N/R $50,600 -33% It all began in 1961 with Project S, a GT concept of the Citroen DS. During nine years of development, Project S evolved from a more sporting DS into an entirely new car, completely reengineered from anything Citroen (or the world) had ever produced, a true Tour de Force of technology and engineering that ultimately would become one of the world’s most exotic, elegant and outspoken cars in history. Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970, the Citroen SM left the media and spectators alike completely slack-jawed. The overall shape lent itself to the idea that the SM was still a conceptual car, leaving people stunned to learn that Citroen agents were on site taking orders. The interior was noted as being one of the finest ever achieved, with some of the best materials available merging with styling that was both elegant and modern, creating an environment, again, like no other. Powered by a 2.7L Maserati V-6 engine, the front-wheel drive car was packed with innovative features, many never before seen, such as the variable-assist power-steering system known as DIRAVI—or Direction a rappel asservi, lightly translated to steering with controlled return. It was marketed in the U.S. as SpeedFeel, and it essentially provides more steering assist at low speeds and less assist at higher speeds, allowing for a more controlled feel at high speeds. It also assisted in controlling torque steer and wheel movement while traversing road imperfections. For a front-wheel drive vehicle capable of more than 130 MPH, it was a remarkable feature, especially for the era. In 1972, the SM earned “Motor Trend” magazine’s prestigious “Car of the Year” award. This Citroen SM is equipped with an aluminum Maserati V-6 fed by three Weber carburetors all backed by a 5-speed manual transmission. In typical fashion of the SM, it is equipped with power windows, factory air conditioning, thickly padded leather seating, full instrumentation and a hydraulically controlled suspension allowing the driver to lift or lower the body. Produced in France from 1970-75, Citroen spent more time developing the SM than selling them, with only 1,150 making their way to the U.S in 1973.

S42 1956 Lancia Appia C80S Furgonata C801902 $45,000 $60,000 $34,100 -24% Introduced in 1953, the Lancia Appia replaced the Ardea and remained in production for a decade. Using a unique overhead-valve, 1090cc V-4 engine with a light alloy head and a column-mounted 4-speed manual transmission, the Appia was available in a number of configurations ranging from the family sedan and coach-built coupes and convertibles to the Furgoncino, or small van. Intended to serve small businesses, Appia Furgoncinos were perfect for delivering food, wine, clothing and flowers, as well as acting as the mode of transport for locksmiths and other service personnel. Some were even used as ambulances. In spite of their versatile nature, only about 2,900 Appia Furgoncinos were produced between 1954 and 1959, when they were phased out in favor of a larger forward-control van. Riding on front coil springs and a rigid rear axle with semi-elliptical springs, 4-wheel drum brakes politely bring the Furgoncino to a stop. Noticeable differences between a Furgoncino and a personal Appia are the larger wheels and tires, lower gearing and reduced horsepower. Finding a panel wagon, or sedan delivery as they are often referred to, in this type of condition can be quite a surprise, as few of these service vehicles survived due to their working nature, especially those wearing a Lancia badge. Lancia was long known as a premium brand with a sporting flair, so to find a Lancia panel wagon is remarkably special. This Furgoncino is highly detailed throughout and finished in two-tone gray-green. Chrome beauty rings and hubcaps dress up the wheels, while moments of chrome, stainless and aluminum trim lightly decorate the vehicle, elevating it from its commercial design. The interior is swathed in rubber, vinyl and plastic, nodding to the service nature of the Appia, but it presents exceedingly well. The gauge cluster is neat, tidy and all Italian, but the right-hand drive layout indicates another Port of Call. This rare Appia Furgoncino is quite a treat indeed.
S43 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II Roadster 1R9390 $110,000 $130,000 $88,000 -20% Presented in a striking triple black color combination, this 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 Roadster commands attention like few others with a sexy shape that could only have come from the house of Coventry. Powered by a 4.2L DOHC inline 6-cylinder engine and 4-speed manual transmission, the interior is appointed with an updated radio and Moto-Lita steering wheel. The Haartz cloth soft top lends a touch of elegance and texture over and above what the car delivers naturally. An E-Type like this is one of those cars so many promised themselves decades ago and have yet to make good on. Imagining this sleek black machine cruising down the road, light glinting off the chrome wire wheels and the engine and exhaust making that signature sound, it gives new meaning to the word dreamy. The Series 2 was introduced in 1968 and passed the baton to the Series 3 in 1971, but largely came to be thanks to new safety legislation imposed on automobile manufacturers. One of the most obvious changes were the larger marker-lamp lenses, larger grille opening and absence of glass-covered headlights, but less noticeable changes included larger bumpers, a smoothed-over dashboard and the ignition mounted adjacent to the steering column instead of the dashboard, subtle changes that simply ushered modern touches to a classic design, and according to some, added a degree of safety earlier examples lacked. It was also an incredibly impressive performance car, winning races the world over, setting records time and again, and impressing customers all the while with a healthy but not unreasonable price tag. This particular example offers a unique opportunity to acquire one in the desirable triple black motif, which is a rarely seen color combination on any Jaguar E-Type Roadster.
S44 1966 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 156530359 $35,000 $50,000 N/R $40,700 Mid Volkswagen’s beloved Beetle has been a source of inspiration and enjoyment for countless enthusiasts spanning generations, and when an owner’s imagination meets with skilled craftsmanship and attention to detail, the results can be found in such gems as this fully Resto Modded 1966 convertible featured in the December 2014 issue of “Hot VWs” magazine. A one-off custom build completed by Tim Allred’s Collision Center in Anderson, Indiana, the Beetle presents in the timeless pairing of black on red, all completed to a level of finish that invites close scrutiny. The bodywork is an impressive amalgam of touches that begins with tightened and even gaps, shaved and tucked bumpers, welt-free fender seams, shaved wipers and parking lights, custom doors and firewall, icepick door handles and early tail lights and decklid. The black paint is polished to a mirror-like finish—not only on exterior surfaces, but everywhere it shows throughout the car. Lighting upgrades come via United Pacific headlights with HID high and low beams, integrated LED parking and turn-signal lights, and LED tail lights. The custom interior has the flair to match, incorporating neatly styled red Ultraleather upholstery, Classic Instruments gauges and billet trim into the classic Beetle interior. The dual-relief 1600cc flat-4 block has been enlarged to 2180cc, employing 92mm Mahle pistons and rings, 8.5:1 compression, an Engle 120 cam and solid rocker arms, Weber 40 carburetors with polished velocity stacks and aluminum Sidewinder exhaust with cutouts. Here, again, the overall workmanship is impressive and obvious in touches like the custom shroud that hides feed lines and linkage, all the while adding more visual interest to the already show-quality work. This beautiful custom Beetle also features rack-and-pinion steering, Rancho independent rear suspension, a Pro Street transaxle with 3.88:1 gearing, Air Ride Technologies air-bag suspension and 4-wheel disc brakes, and mini-tubs allow the car to ride low over its Budnick Gasser wheels and Yokahama S radial tires.
S45 2017 Chevrolet Camaro COPO 2017C0P0045 $120,000.00 $140,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Chevrolet celebrated the Camaro’s 50th anniversary by announcing another release of the legendary COPO Camaro in an edition of 69 cars, matching the total production of the original ZL1-powered racers. Developed in close cooperation with the NHRA for legality in Stock Eliminator and/or Super Stock competition, this iteration of the COPO Camaro builds on a legacy established in 1969, when the first purpose-built drag racing specialty Camaro was designed to compete in NHRA’s Stock Eliminator. The COPO nameplate is a nod to the Central Office Production Order system, which crafty Chevrolet dealers used to build one-of-a-kind high-performance models. No. 45 of the 69 produced, this example is one of only five finished in eye-catching Bright Yellow paint, in this case accented with Matte Black base COPO graphics. This is truly a no-nonsense, no-holds-barred drag racing machine capable of dropping the hammer to the tune of an 8.5-second quarter mile. The new-generation COPO Camaro was offered with a choice of engines that included the LT-based 302 CI V-8 rated at 360 HP, a 427 rated at 470 HP and the brute-force Whipple-supercharged 350 CI infusing this example with 580 HP at 8,000 RPM. An $8,000 option, the 350 is coupled with a specially built 400 Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission actuated by a Hurst “Quarterstick” shifter with built-in neutral safety switch. Riding on Hoosier drag slicks and narrow front runners mounted on lightweight but strong Bogart racing wheels, the car features a carbon fiber domed hood with a prominent cowl-induction scoop, adjustable wheelie bars, parachute package for extra stopping power on those sub-9-second runs, a full roll cage and specialized instrumentation. This exclusive COPO Camaro comes with a custom COPO car cover, a COPO book numbered to the car, an extra large Simpson Racing suit, signatures of all team members in the trunk and lead captain Mike Lawrence’s autograph on the dash.
S47 1969 Lotus Europa S2 652241 $35,000 $50,000 N/R $30,800 -12% A comprehensive frame-off restoration has been performed to a high standard on this rare 1969 Lotus Europa S2 Federal Coupe, one of just 865 produced for export to the North American market. Lotus Founder and Principal Colin Chapman created the Europa, as its name suggests, for the European Common Market, which explains his choice of Renault’s commendable R16 1565cc alloy-block inline-4 engine and companion 4-speed transaxle. The Europa’s remarkably strong, steel-backbone chassis and all-independent suspension—comprising front wishbones, rear transverse links and radius rods with coilovers all around—echoed that of the Elan, yet departed from that car with its front disc and rear drum brakes. The Europa’s unique unstressed fiberglass body maintained Chapman’s philosophy of “adding lightness” while also giving the car a distinct aerodynamic advantage and a truly sporty appearance that still appeals today. A surprising benefit of the Europa’s light weight and slippery envelope is excellent fuel economy; “Road & Track” magazine recorded 31 MPG “under hard driving” and suggested even better results under favorable conditions, likely meaning with less aggressive use of the throttle. One of the finest examples known today, this 1969 Lotus Europa S2 Federal Coupe was beautifully refinished in the original Bahama Yellow paint, and both front and rear bumpers were rechromed. The steel-backbone frame was completely disassembled, blasted with a dustless blaster, epoxy primed and painted black. Its Renault R16 inline-4 engine was rebuilt and upgraded with a new carburetor. The interior was refreshed with new seats, door panels, carpet and dash, and the car features new glass, restored electric window regulators and upgraded stainless-steel door hinges. Originally fitted with 13-inch steel wheels, this Europa S2 now sports 15-inch Minilite-style 8-spoke alloy wheels running Kumho’s outstanding Ecsta 4X performance tires. Additionally, the car features new adjustable coilover shock absorbers and a throaty, new exhaust system. Lotus Europas are a rare commodity, especially ones that present in the splendid condition this example enjoys, making it an excellent choice for the collector seeking the most exclusive.
S49 1969 Chevrolet Impala Convertible 164679U196771 $30,000 $40,000 $24,200 -19% Beyond any debate and dispute, Chevrolet was the absolute ruler of the American automotive landscape in 1969. Stop by the store with the sign of the Bowtie, and consumers could lose themselves in everything from the luscious Camaro pony car to a slate of ever-more-muscular Novas and Chevelles, not to mention the big-block Corvette. But for a lot of people, nothing less than a full-size Impala with comfortable cruising space for six will ultimately do. Chevrolet assembled and sold right around 777,000 Impalas in the year that closed the ‘60s, but with personal hardtops and air conditioning coming into widespread acceptance, only 14,415 Impala convertibles were produced in 1969. They’re still seldom seen 50 years later, especially when they’re as highly personalized as this triple black example of the breed. Just look at the colors, and then direct your attention to its ultra-smooth, ground-hugging stance. The paint, upholstery and top combination of colors is factory-correct to this Impala. Like every Impala convertible built in 1969, this example relies on eight cylinders for motivation; the small-block engine displaces 350 CI, a bit bigger than the standard 327 for 1969 Impala convertibles. The transmission is an automatic, controlled by a console-mounted “horseshoe” shifter. Front occupants can ride regally on factory bucket seats that flank the console. The top lowers downward via power assist; the steering and brakes are likewise power assisted. That jaw-dropping stance comes from a custom suspension setup that includes air ride, with everything rolling on Ridler alloy wheels. A triple black full-size convertible cruiser with plenty of room for friends and family, this scintillating Impala can give any buyer a whole new take on how open-air motoring can be had with dramatic, pavement-hugging style.
S51 1984 Mercedes-Benz 380SL Convertible WDBBA45A2EA012214 $40,000 $50,000 $37,400 -6% Based on the immensely successful R107 SL platform in production since 1971, the Mercedes-Benz 380SL convertible and one-year-only 380SLC coupe succeeded the 350SL/SLC in 1981 for North America. Powered by a 3.8L V-8 engine equipped with single overhead camshafts per cylinder bank and Bosch fuel injection, the 380SL was reequipped by September 1981 with a new, all-aluminum, small-bore, long-stroke engine of equal displacement, delivering significantly improved fuel economy with only a slight reduction in power output. High-speed performance was upheld with a numerically lower final-drive ratio. Retaining its original Deep Blue exterior finish and original interior, this exceptional 1984 Mercedes-Benz 380SL Convertible was sold new at Jim Slemons Mercedes-Benz of Newport Beach, California, and has covered just 8,162 miles with one owner since new. In addition to its 3.8L and 4-speed automatic powertrain, this 380SL is very well equipped with an auxiliary hardtop, air conditioning, power brakes, steering and windows, and a desirable Becker Grand Prix radio. Produced through 1985, the 380SL garnered positive, even glowing, road-test reviews. Perhaps “Road & Track” magazine’s John Lamm summed up the many virtues of the updated 380SL Convertible best, stating that it is “a unique and highly prestigious car. If it’s a well built, luxurious two-seat open car with hard and soft tops, a big V-8 engine, automatic transmission and power assists you’re looking for, look no farther—this is your one and only choice.” Quite popular with the wealthiest and most discerning buyers of the 1980s, the 380SL was a virtual fixture on the top-rated TV shows and movies of the 1980s and ‘90s. Accompanying items include the delivery paperwork including the sales contract, odometer statement, the warranty and maintenance booklets, service records, manuals and the tool roll. Without question, this 1984 Mercedes-Benz 380SL is one of the best preserved and documented examples of the iconic 380SL.
S52 1966 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III Convertible HBJ8L/32843 $70,000 $100,000 $79,200 Mid This 1966 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII BJ8 Convertible has just come out of a one-year-long overhaul using concours guidelines as the rules for its restoration. The vehicle was purchased last year from a seller in Tacoma, Washington, who had kept the car in garage-storage since 1974. The marque specialists at Healey Lane Restoration in Marcola, Oregon, completed the massive project to wonderful results. The vehicle’s major components and subsystems were gone through, resealed and reconditioned, and a new top and fitted tonneau were installed. Having traveled very few test miles since completion, the car was finished in bold Golden Beige and is complemented by a red Ambla vinyl interior for an arresting color contrast. Under the hood is the venerable 3000cc 6-cylinder engine. Rated at 150 HP, it is equipped with twin SU carburetors, ceramic-coated intake and exhaust manifolds, and a polished stainless exhaust system. The vaunted British engine is paired to a 4-speed manual transmission with electric overdrive. A Phase II model, this car received an updated rear suspension from the earlier Phase I cars. To allow for improved exhaust clearance, the 3000s had their panhard bar design swapped out for a torsion bar setup in 1964. This is most recognizable from the rear, where it’s noticeable that the car sits up higher than Phase 1 Austin-Healeys. The car is also equipped with front disc brakes and a power booster. Inside the cabin, the Smiths gauges were rebuilt and reside in a burled walnut dash. The cabin also boasts a heater, and the steering wheel is adjustable. Adding to the alluring aesthetics are the Dunlop-style 60-spoke bright wire wheels with spinner centers wrapped in Nexen radial tires. Exponentially refined compared to Austin-Healey’s fledgling BN1 100 sports cars, the 3000 MkIII BJ8 convertible represents the final evolution of the “Big Healey.”
S53 2018 Porsche 911/991 GT3 WP0AC2A98JS177065 $160,000.00 $185,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A As Porsche’s track-focused, yet road-legal, high-performance 911 variant, the GT3 is the storied marque’s most powerful, non-turbocharged 911 model available. Boldly finished in white over black leather and Alcantara upholstery, this 2018 Porsche GT3 has covered just 5,148 miles. Powered by a 4.0L/500 HP flat-6 engine delivering 339 lb-ft of torque and featuring dry-sump lubrication and a 9,000-RPM redline, the GT3 bristles with race-derived technical wizardry. As expected, it offers incredible performance in all disciplines, including 0-60 MPH acceleration in 3.0 seconds, 11.1-second quarter-mile times and a factory-claimed 197 MPH top end. Braking from 70-0 MPH requires only 146 feet, and handling stats include 1.11 g on the skidpad. Equipped with Porsche’s lightning-quick, 7-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission, this GT3 rides on 20-inch GT3 center-lock wheels and stops with ventilated and cross-drilled 4-wheel disc brakes sporting bold red-finished calipers. Other features include a carbon fiber rear wing, limited-slip differential, air conditioning, backup camera and a red 12 o’clock hashmark on the steering wheel. Comprehensive standard features of this GT3 include rear-axle steering, Porsche Stability Management, Automatic Brake Differential, Hydraulic Brake Assist, Universal Audio Interface, Porsche Communications Management, Sound Package Plus with eight speakers, heated power-adjustable mirrors and anti-theft with engine immobilizer. Without doubt, the current GT3 represents the state-of-the-art in the evolution of the 911, and it totally blurs the line between racing and street cars. Although the 4.0L engine displacement and 500 HP rating remain consistent with the previous GT3 generation, the new engine was derived directly from the Porsche motorsports program and, in its basic form, powers both the street version GT3 and GT3RS, as well as the GT3RSR and GT3 Cup competition cars. A premium-quality example with low mileage, this 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 will provide a thrilling drive on the road or track alike.
S54 2016 McLaren 675LT Spider SBM11SAAXGW675518 $225,000 $275,000 $253,000 Mid One of just 500 produced, this 2016 McLaren 675LT Spider has been driven just 313 miles. McLaren Automotive itself describes the 675LT Spider as “the lightest, most driver-focused, most exclusive series-production McLaren supercar ever built,” that from the folks who brought you the now-legendary F1 and the hyper-hybrid P1, both cars that rewrote the rulebook when it comes to outright performance. Built on McLaren’s incredibly strong MonoCell carbon-fiber chassis, the 675LT Spider comes close to both where the rubber literally hits the road. Tighter and lighter than the 650S that preceded it, the 675LT’s twin-turbocharged 3.8L features intercooling, direct injection, dual overhead cams and four valves per cylinder to churn out a devilish 666 HP at 7,100 RPM and 516 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 RPM, furious output that launches it to 60 MPH in 2.7 seconds and 205 MPH at its redline, all facilitated by McLaren’s own dual-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission. The “LT” part of the designation stands for the “Long Tail” air-brake/spoiler that extends from the 675LT’s back end, just one element in an aerodynamic makeover that includes more aggressive front and rear diffusers, front-end plates and lower side intakes, all rendered in carbon fiber and producing 40% more downforce than the 650S with the added benefit of improved engine cooling. Riding on 19- and 20-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero rubber, this Mantis Green 675LT employs Normal, Sport and Track modes for powertrain and suspension settings to suit all occasions, as well as lightweight carbon-ceramic brakes with matching green calipers. The cockpit combines taut black leather upholstery with contrasting green French stitching, carbon-fiber shift paddles, steering wheel and console trim, aluminum foot-pedal trim, Engine Start-Stop button and console-mounted switches for setting the various driving modes. It’s a fantastic environment for the ultimate driving experience.
S55 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham 58P028297 $100,000.00 $125,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The hand-built Eldorado Brougham first became available in 1957 and featured an array of amenities and features, largely justifying the $13,000 price. This 1958 Eldorado Brougham is one of only 304 built that year, and it retains its original leather seats, headliner and dash pad. Presented with a black body and interior, it’s equipped with the 365 CI V-8 engine and Hydra-Matic transmission and features power brakes with new hydraulics and power steering. The penultimate expression of a luxury vehicle, the Eldorado Broughams came astronomically well equipped with air conditioning, power vent windows, tinted glass, a transistorized radio with a power antenna, self-leveling air suspension, two-position memory power seats, automatic trunk opener, cruise control, polarized sun visors, auto-release parking brake, a dual-zone heating system, Autronic Eye that dimmed the high beams for oncoming traffic, an electric clock, forged aluminum wheels and more. The roof was brushed stainless steel, and buyers could choose from any number of interior and exterior color combinations to create an Eldorado Brougham that was uniquely their own; they could even choose Mouton, Karakul or lambskin carpeting. This Eldorado Brougham has covered only 24,000 believed-original miles from new and was featured in “Hemmings Classic Car” magazine in December 2017. Eldorado Broughams were each custom tailored to order, built by hand and inspected to the highest levels of scrutiny. Even the act of selling an Eldorado Brougham required training. The corporate edict was to produce absolute motoring perfection without room for excuse or error. In the interest of keeping its clients’ interest, Cadillac issued letters announcing the upcoming Eldorado Brougham, quietly urging its loyal customers to patiently await the luxury car that would better all others. Slightly shrewd, the letters quite possibly retained sales that otherwise might likely have gone to the luxury competition.
S56 1948 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet V1113591 $45,000 $65,000 N/R $22,000 -51% Carrying on the storied traditions of the great prewar marques, 1948 would be the final year for the original Lincoln Continental cabriolet package. In this final year of production, only 1,650 cabriolets were produced, a model that had already come to symbolize the finest appointments of that era. Little needs to be stated about what any Lincoln Continental was about, as this was an exclusive motorcar first introduced in prototype form starting in 1939 and built through the advent of the war. In 1946, it had been restyled for the postwar era by legendary designer Raymond Loewy. Already recognized as “Full Classic” by the CCCA, this car was also America’s final domestically built vehicle using a V-12 engine for power. Under the lengthy hood of this restored classic is the 292/125 HP V-12 flathead engine, well-detailed and excellently presented. This example is backed with the 3-speed manual transmission with manual overdrive. Covered in deep black paint, the exterior is gorgeous and showcases the massive lines of the Continental’s stylization. Appointed with streamline-derived chrome work and bezels, highlights outside include rear fender skirts, front and rear bumper guards, a continental kit and wide whitewall tires with script Lincoln hubcaps. A well-proportioned black soft top with unique red piping, script lettering and exterior mirrors complete the immediate impression of luxury. Accessories are extensive as well, including the hydraulic power convertible top, hydraulic power windows, AM radio, dash-fitted clock, fluted chrome-line interior accents and functional in-dash factory gauges. The interior itself is done in richly toned red leather and a plush layout combining a split front bench seat and broadly inviting full-width rear design. Today, these cars are some of the most impressive vehicles to come from the immediate postwar era. With the heritage of the V-12 engine purring beneath the hood, and an overall appearance that showcases exclusivity, this final-year V-12 cabriolet makes a strong statement.
S57 1942 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet H133783 $100,000 $125,000 N/R $55,000 -45% The 1942 Lincoln Continental had a couple of unique features, as the gold interior trim accents on the MK1 and the Ball and Wing hood mascot were both exclusive to that year. Presented in correct Darien Blue with a blue interior, this example is one of only 27 still in existence of the original 136 built . The concours restoration performed on this example was completed by Harbor Auto Restoration and it has served well, receiving both the People’s Choice and Excellence in Class awards in 2012 in the American Classics 1935-1948 Class; it further earned First Place in the Antique Automobile Club of America Award in both 2010 and 2012, three ribbon awards were bestowed upon it at the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance America in 2012, and it was a Concours Advent winner in 2012 as well. The car has been adapted with dual 6-volt batteries for improved cranking power over the 305 CI V-12 engine, making it easier to start, and it has a 3-speed manual transmission with manual overdrive for easy highway cruising. The tan convertible top is hydraulically operated and stows away under a tonneau cover, giving it a lovely, finished look when the top is down. Drivers will love the two-spoke “boomerang” steering wheel, white Bakelite knobs, beautifully restored gauges, classic radio, luxurious carpeting, soft upholstery and a general nod to an Art Deco period in motoring. Riding on wide whitewall tires with painted wheels and chrome hubcaps, the rear wheels are stylishly hidden behind full-length fender skirts. The Continental made a huge splash when Edsel Ford arrived in Florida for his annual vacation and showed the car to many other affluent people, many of whom placed cash deposits and ordered one for themselves when production commenced. They were expensive, featured a V-12 engine and were styled with an almost European flavor, lacking running boards with smooth, sweeping fenders. It radiated sophistication and understated elegance. This example’s pedigree of wins, absolute rarity and excellent color combination mark it as a stellar example of the breed.
S58 1940 LaSalle Special Series Convertible Coupe 4328552 $75,000 $105,000 N/R $38,500 -49% Only 425 LaSalle Special Series convertible coupes were produced in 1940, and this example offers a museum-quality restoration with Champagne Gold Metallic paint, beautiful brightwork, Burgundy leather upholstery and vacuum-operated Sahara Sands convertible top, all subtly alerting people to the high-quality craftsmanship and care it received. The 322/130 HP V-8 engine is fed by a downdraft carburetor, features an automatic choke and is backed by a 3-speed manual transmission. The louvered radiator is automated, allowing for rapid cold-start warmups. Inside, passengers will revel in the sumptuous luxuries and appointments that put LaSalle a cut above the rest with a sporty flair; elements like a red steering wheel center with gold and white detailing, a clock, a radio and handsome styling all around conspire to wedge LaSalle between Cadillac and Buick, a niche space indeed, but one General Motors President Alfred P. Sloan felt needed to be filled to bridge the pricing gap. It was not alone, as the corporation filled other perceived price gaps with brands like Pontiac and Marquette. Built by Cadillac, LaSalle received top-notch build quality and materials, as well as a host of creature comforts other brands likely lacked. With the top up, this LaSalle can ensure fresh-air comfort, thanks to cowl ventilation. Well-appointed and packed with intricate details, as any upscale vehicle should be, this LaSalle offers a unique hood ornament that operates as a hood release and lock, bumper guards, rear fender stone shields and red wheels and hubcap detailing that resonates the interior color well. Twin chrome sideview mirrors mounted high upon the windshield frame offer balanced styling, another nice detail and a little extra safety on the road. The 1940 LaSalles would mark the last of the brand, with only mockups having been created to hint that GM was considering ushering LaSalle into the 1941 model year. However, the companion model to Cadillac was phased out, leaving collectors a unique, rare brand offering fabulous luxuries and build quality blended with a dash of athleticism.
S59 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series WDBSK79F99F156694 $200,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A One of a mere 175 units imported into the United States, this 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series has traveled only 5,207 miles since new and presents beautifully. AMG Black Series cars are best described as extreme and exclusive, and their sole purpose is to deliver an experience of unadulterated driving ecstasy. The formula for achieving this heightened level of automotive nirvana is a car that is lighter, more powerful, more focused and louder than the standard AMG. Powered by a twin-turbo 6.0L/661 HP DOHC 48-valve V-12 engine pushing out 738 lb-ft of torque and coupled to an AMG Speedshift Plus 5-speed automatic transmission and limited-slip differential, the SL65 AMG Black Series has a factory-rated 199 MPH terminal velocity. Three-mode ESP is fitted in conjunction with the limited-slip differential with 40% locking capability to keep power delivery optimized and the car pointed straight. The car has been lightened by 570 pounds through the extensive use of carbon fiber body panels, including the front hood with twin air-extraction vents, flared front fenders, flared rocker panels, flared rear fenders, rear decklid, special front valence with three large apertures for the cooling of the turbos, radiator and brakes, a special rear apron with carbon fiber diffusers, and a prominent rear wing that automatically deploys at speeds beyond 75 MPH. Fitted with ultra-wide contact-patch tires and wheels, the AMG Black Series weighs in at 4,123 pounds yet corners on rails. Finished in Obsidian Black with matching black exclusive leather sport seats with AMG-embossed headrests, this 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series is generously optioned with the factory carbon fiber interior package, multimedia center with navigation, keyless go, dual climate control, dual-stage airbags and AMG silver brake calipers.
S60 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series WDBSK79F99F158347 $200,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A If a road-legal car were to ever legitimately qualify for the title of factory Hot Rod, it would have to be the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series. Developed directly from the AMG Formula 1 Safety Car program, the SL65 AMG Black Series appearance is a startling one for a road car, an amalgam of DTM-inspired carbon fiber-reinforced plastic roll bar, body and roof panels, an articulated rear spoiler, race car fender flares and an aggressive front fascia. The look is everything one would expect from the folks at the AMG Performance Studio in Affalterbach, Germany, all of whom are laser-like focused on extracting maximum power and performance from their parent corporation’s already sporting automobiles. For the SL65 AMG Black Series, they tuned the SL65’s all-aluminum V-12 bi-turbo powerplant to 661 HP, with torque electronically limited to 738 lb-ft in service to driveability. Working in harmony with the big V-12 are AMG’s smooth Speedshift Plus 5-speed automatic gearbox offering the option of manual paddle shifts or automatic changes depending on driver preference, as well as a multi-disc rear differential, together making the Black Series a stunning performer. Hugging the ground over Dunlop SP Sport radial tires on 19×9.5-inch and 20×11.5-inch AMG twin 6-spoke forged aluminum wheels, the SL65 AMG Black Series rides on all-independent adjustable coil-spring suspension with highly responsive power rack-and-pinion steering, and it hauls down from speed through the application of massive ventilated disc brakes with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers. One of 175 produced for the U.S. market and showing a mere 3,600 miles, this 2009 example sports rare Diamond White Metallic paint and a contrasting black leather interior. Demonstrating that the track-ready side of this breathtaking machine is only part of the equation, the Black Series’ luxury and convenience appointments include heated and cooled memory seats, heated power mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, power windows and trunk release, and a HomeLink system.
S61 1967 Porsche 912 457757 $55,000 $75,000 $52,800 -4% This gorgeous red 1967 Porsche 912 has been the loving recipient of a recent, meticulous comprehensive restoration. Owned by a journeyman body and paint professional, the car has been restored to an exceedingly high level of quality, with the resultant bodywork and paint exceeding Porsche factory standards from when the car was new. The engine and transmission have been rebuilt to factory specification. Likewise, both the front and rear suspension have been treated to a refurbishment, with close attention paid to retaining the stock height. Equipped with the optional 5-speed 901 transmission and the three-gauge VDO instrument cluster, the car conveys the simplicity of the Porsche brand of late 1960s. The fresh black leatherette interior is classic in-period Porsche, featuring a 4-spoke plastic-rimmed steering wheel and aluminum applique trim on the dashboard. It has a set of Fuchs wheels mounted on a fresh set of radial tires. The 912 was first introduced in 1965 as the lesser-priced alternative to the more expensive 911. The new model was powered by a 1600cc flat-4 engine that was carried over from the outgoing Porsche 356SC, while the 911 was powered by a new 2.0L flat-6 engine—both shared the same unitized body platform, front suspension and rear suspension. Faced with the purchase choice between the two, many opted for the 912 based on some very compelling reasons. First, it was lighter than the 911 by 238 pounds—178 pounds of which came from the lighter weight of the 4-cylinder engine versus that of the larger 6-cylinder—and it handled better simply because it had a more balanced weight distribution. The flat-4 engine also had a longstanding and well-deserved reputation for incredible reliability, durability and performance. Price, practicality and handling considerations helped the 912 to outsell the 911 by a 2-to-1 margin at the time.
S62 1957 Ford Thundebird D7FH253729 $75,000 $100,000 $90,200 Mid A professional restoration executed to an unparalleled level of faithful detail by the father and son team of Amos and Justin Minter earned this 1957 Ford Thunderbird the highest concours class score at the Classic Thunderbird Club International Concours in 2011. This late-production Sea Spray Green Thunderbird with a creme leather interior is among the last examples of two-passenger, first-generation cars built before the controversial four-place Thunderbird “square bird” made its debut for 1958. The late-‘50s American automotive icon embodies more than 50 years of Minter restoration expertise. Machined and assembled to factory or better specifications, the rebuilt 312 CI Y-block Ford V-8 was good for 245 HP in factory trim. Automatic shifts and fluid power delivery come thanks to a Ford-O-Matic 3-speed transmission with a floor-mount shifter. The stock Holley vacuum secondary 4-barrel carburetor delivers brisk yet well-mannered performance, and it was an improvement over the outgoing Holley “teapot.” Meticulous attention to original factory detail beneath the hood is complemented by an engine dress-up kit. Power steering and brakes work with improved-for-1957 suspension for sport road handling and a personal luxury ride. Sea Spray Green is the rarest of 1957 production colors, and removing the signature porthole hardtop or lowering the white soft top reveals the famously well-appointed Thunderbird interior with creme leather upholstery over looped rayon carpeting. Air conditioning was not available for 1957, so the Thunderbird is outfitted with an exclusive Minter’s factory-appearance cooling package retrofit. An AM/FM stereo with iPod hookup is ready to belt out 1957 hits from Fats Domino to Perry Como. The Thunderbird waits for its next owner to drive down the highway or into a collection on factory-optional chrome wire wheels and Coker Classic wide whitewall tires dressed in fender skirts for a finishing touch of elegance.
S63 1927 Ford Dick Williams Roadster T1476548 $300,000 $400,000 $149,600 -50% In 1952, a young Dick Williams from Berkeley, California, built a Hot Rod to be as beautiful as it was quick. By the following year, he won the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award at the fourth annual Oakland Roadster Show with his custom, powder blue lacquer 1927 Ford Model T Roadster. As well as the car’s bodywork, drivetrain and paint was executed, it was what was underneath it that was so historically important. According to Blackie Gejeian, “It was the first car, to my knowledge, that ran a tube frame.” While a custom, tubular frame is common among Hot Rod builds these days, there’s no doubt that it was a rare feature in custom cars when Williams took home the AMBR with his. Williams’ hand-built, chrome-moly tube chassis was featured on the cover of the July 1957 “Rod Builder and Customizer” as a testament to its unique qualities of the era. He also recorded a 123 MPH pass in the roadster on the Bonneville Dry Lakes before it changed hands. By 1974, Dick Falk, from nearby Walnut Creek, California, had acquired the car and painted it a deep maroon. The Street Rod trend of the mid-‘70s was most commonly illustrated by a deep-dish rear wheel and narrow front wheel combination, dramatically accentuated by wide, raised white-letter dragster tires. Falk updated the roadster with this very wheel and tire configuration, as well as externally located rear hairpin radius rods and new interior upholstery, while leaving the custom bored and stroked ’48 Mercury flathead V-8, magnesium Halibrand quick-change rear end, hand-formed aluminum belly pan, twin 9.5-gallon fuel tanks and signature Kinmont front drum brake setups untouched. While in Falk’s hands, the roadster made the cover of the December 1974 issue of “Rod Action,” before he painted it Candy Apple Red the following year. Named “A T For 2,” Blackie Gejeian acquired the roadster and, beyond painting the engine block, largely left the car untouched from its Dick Falk configuration. Under Blackie’s care, the roadster has appeared at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and has been featured in “The Rodder’s Journal,” “Street Rodder,” and “Mobilia” magazines, as well as coffee table books like “Hot Rod Milestones.”
S64 1929 Ford The Emperor A1911576 $300,000 $400,000 $115,500 -62% “The Emperor,” Chuck Krikorian’s fully customized 1929 Ford Model A Roadster, is easily one of the most recognizable historic show cars in existence. Krikorian was a teenager growing up in Fresno, California, in the late ‘50s when he started building a drag roadster out of a ’29 Ford Model A Roadster body, ’31 Ford Model A frame rails and a 1957 Cadillac 365 CI V-8 that had been turned into a Hot Rodded 406 CI engine. Not long after he finished modifying and chroming the frame, Krikorian’s brother-in-law Richard Peters and his friend Blackie Gejeian convinced him to turn his dragster project into a show car. Peters owned the “Ala Kart” show car and would win the Oakland Roadster Show’s America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award in 1958 and 1959, while Blackie had tied for the award in 1955 with his own “Shish Kabob Special”; the two were persuasive enough that Krikorian soon shipped his project car to none other than George Barris and his Barris Kustoms in Lynwood, California, to finish. The car’s body would be channeled 8 inches over the chromed frame, and the dramatically customized grille shell and headlight bezel frame that would become the car’s signature feature was fabricated; modified motorcycle fenders were molded and fitted over the wheels and tires, Eddie Martinez designed and created the interior, the big Cadillac V-8 was show-dressed and topped with six chromed Stromberg 97 carburetors, and the car’s red and white paint scheme was laid down in time for the 1960 Oakland Roadster Show. The Emperor won the AMBR award that year, just before the car suffered damage to its original paint. That damage to its paint facilitated its second—and last—repaint by none other than famed custom painter Junior Conway. The other major modification to the original AMBR-winning car was an engine rebuild after Blackie ran the car at Kingdon Dragstrip to 106 MPH, set the Street Roadster class record. Soon after, Krikorian put the car into long-term storage, selling its original chromed reverse wheels and whitewall tires in the process. Blackie was able to purchase the car directly from Krikorian 20-plus years later, and it’s been in his and his family’s possession ever since. The car’s original wheels and tires had been replaced with wider, chromed steel wheels and raised white-letter tires, but the paint is still Conway’s original lacquer and the chrome is still the original finish that helped Krikorian win top Oakland Roadster Show honors in 1960. The original, custom motorcycle fenders proved too delicate to keep on the car, but it remains largely in the same condition it came out of the Barris shop nearly 60 years ago. The car has appeared in countless magazines, show catalogs and coffee table books, along with on the July 1960 cover of “Hot Rod,” the cover of “Barris Kustoms of the 1950s,” the cover of “Hot Rod Milestones,” and it has been the subject of several Johnny Lightning scale model toy editions. “This is one of the most fabulous cars I’ve ever come across,” Blackie once said. “It was painted back in the early part of 1959 and it’s still the same paint!”
S65 1923 Ford Candy Man DR135458MO $100,000 $150,000 N/R $49,200 -51% As is the custom with many show cars that have survived generations, multiple ownerships, trophies and varying iterations, none have become an icon of such variants on the Street Rod theme as The Candy Man. This 1923 Ford Model T Roadster is actually one of Andy Brizio’s original “Instant T” fiberglass bodies, built as a competition show car in time for the 1969 Oakland Roadster Show. Miles Foster commissioned Brizio’s shop to build the car, and Brizio incorporated a series of firsts in its build: the first front-engine Brizio Street Rod to feature a custom torsion bar front-end suspension setup, the first of his cars to feature an independent rear-end suspension from a Corvette and the first Brizio Street Rod to be built without a truck bed or trunk, simply featuring a large, spun aluminum keg-style Moon fuel tank behind the cab. Miles Foster also commissioned engine-builder Cub Barnett to build the 4-71 blown Chevrolet small-block V-8, Kenny Foster to do design and stitch the interior upholstery, and famed San Francisco Bay Area custom painter Art Himsl to design the car’s graphics and paint scheme. After a few car show seasons, Miles Foster sold the roadster to Bill Roach, who also had car show competition aspirations. Roach wasn’t a fan of the signature psychedelic Himsl paint, so he took the car back to Himsl again for a solid gold paint scheme featuring orange flames. He also returned to Kenny Foster for a custom-upholstered roadster top and added a set of fenders and a custom hood scoop for a new look and attitude befitting the early 1970s. Roach named the car the “Budget Mobile” as a nod to the rental car business he owned and had the name painted across its cowl. Between roughly 1972 and 1976, the car changed hands at least three times before it was sold to Jim Molino of Pleasant Hill, California. It had appeared in photos of the Oakland Roadster Show in 1974 and 1975, and Molino had intentions to carry on the tradition. Molino added a truck bed to the cab, and then returned to Art Himsl once more for a Candy Red paint job before Himsl’s wife, Ellen, added a candy man illustration to its doors. Kenny Foster’s upholstery shop also saw the car again, this time changing the roadster top to a triple porthole rear window design with a triangular window in the roof. Renamed “The Candy Man,” it was campaigned across the 1976 show car season before Molino began to reimagine the car once more for a run at a few ISCA trophies. He tasked race car chassis builder Chuck Delu to build a new chassis, tapped Bobby Martinez and Mike Farley to change the paint to the pearl yellow and graphics scheme it wears to this day, and commissioned Rudy Peña to engrave nearly every metal surface forward of the body. The Candy Man won the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award at the 1977 Oakland Roadster Show, as well as the ISCA points championship the same year. The car changed hands a few more times before it ended up in Arnold Link’s Northern California garage in 1979, where it was stored until he decided to sell it in 2003. Blackie Gejeian bought The Candy Man in early 2004, just in time to display it at the annual Detroit Autorama that year. Gejeian attested to the fact that the car has not been changed since winning the 1977 AMBR and ISCA points race.
S66 1927 Ford T Plus 2 DRF62378 $150,000 $200,000 N/R $51,700 -66% The radically customized 1927 Ford Roadster Pickup known as “T Plus 2” is known by a few names: The Lokey T, T+II, T+Two and T+2. In 1964, Don Lokey and his wife, Millie, were living in Fresno, California, when Don decided to build a Hot Rod that could do double duty as a show car. Starting with a 1927 Ford Model T Roadster Pickup truck body, Don fabricated a custom frame to mount the body, the modified 1957 Chevrolet Corvette 283 CI V-8 rebuilt to 301 CI, the Lincoln transmission and the early Ford “banjo” rear end. He had the entire chassis chrome plated, had the truck painted, installed custom white Naugahyde interior upholstery, entered it in the Oakland Roadster Show that same year and came home with the All-American Sweepstakes for T Roadsters award. With a taste of winning fresh on his palette, Don decided to use the truck to launch a campaign to come back and win the top honors at Oakland: America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award. After a few conversations with George Barris, Don delivered his roadster pickup to Barris Kustoms in Lynwood, California. Since the car was already in complete, show-quality condition, Barris could concentrate on restyling the body, reimagining the interior and updating the wheel and tire choice, as well as designing a whole new overall look for it. He designed and crafted a radically different grille surround and headlight treatment wrapped around a brass 1915 Model T radiator shell, complementing air scoop, restyled body with molded rear fenders, handmade tail lights inspired by the truck’s nose treatment and an interior freshened with white pearl Naugahyde and red velvet inserts. Even its wheels were custom-made units by Astro—one of the legacy wheel names of the automotive aftermarket. As Barris laid down “35 coats of translucent Kandy red lacquer … blended into white pearl of essence” and wrapped up the project, it made the April 1965 cover of “Rod & Custom.” Don brought it home and entered his “T Plus 2” in the AMBR chase at the 1966 Oakland Roadster Show. The T handily won the coveted award that year, and Don continued to exhibit it for several years after bringing home that 9-foot trophy. Don retired the T from the show circuit and stored it for 30-plus years before Blackie Gejeian bought it, vowing to keep it in its 1966 show-winning livery. The car would go on to see the Lincoln 3-speed and banjo rear swapped for an automatic transmission and chromed Ford 9-inch rear end, but it has otherwise been kept true to its Barris version.
S67 1927 Ford California Star N/A $100,000 $150,000 N/R $77,000 -23% One of the few fully-custom, completely hand-built cars in the Blackie Gejeian collection, the California Star stands out from any crowd it finds itself in for a long list of reasons ending with a well-documented controversy surrounding its entry into the 1984 America’s Most Beautiful Roadster competition at the famed Oakland Roadster Show. In 1981, Don Varner, an industrial designer moonlighting as an automotive designer, and metal shaper/custom car builder Ron Covell teamed up on a purpose-built show car project based on an early Model T track roadster. The original plan was to source an available fiberglass 1927 Ford Model T Roadster body and build the car around it with custom-made body panels, chassis and interior. The car was also to feature a midengine drivetrain using a turbocharged Chevrolet V-6 for power. As Varner and Covell developed the 1:1 scale mockups for the car, it was soon decided that there were no parts of the original fiberglass roadster body that would lend themselves well to the ultra-modern interpretation of a traditional Model T roadster, a track roadster or a Hot Rod. Ultimately, the project came together as a completely unique, hand-built roadster that loosely featured design influences from variants of a Ford Model T roadster, as well as open-wheel race cars from the Indy series and circle track racing. But, ultimately, no parts of a Model T roadster—original or fiberglass copy—would be used in the car’s build. Covell hand-formed the body out of aluminum, but also fabricated the car’s chassis, in true race car style, from chrome-moly tubing, incorporating open-wheel racing technology into its suspension system and spending roughly 2,400 hours on his responsibilities to the project. The interior was scratch-made and executed by Putnam’s Interiors in Sacramento, California, and the car was painted Ferrari Red lacquer by Bob Acosta at his shop in San Jose, California. The entire project took less than three years to complete and was entered in the 1984 America’s Most Beautiful Roadster competition at the Oakland Roadster Show held at the San Francisco Bay Area’s Oakland Coliseum. The California Star immediately caused a sensation, as well as controversy, over the fact that it wasn’t technically based on an existing make and model of roadster. Even though its original inspiration came from a ’27 Model T roadster and there had certainly been hand-built entries campaigned for the AMBR in previous years, the car was so outlandish and modern-looking that the outcry around its capture of the AMBR in 1984 was clearly noted by the industry. In spite of the resistance at the time, the car—billed and entered in the competition as a 1927 Ford Model T Roadster—was accepted as the undisputed winner and set the bar for the highly refined concept Street Rods built in the ‘80s, as well as Oakland Roadster Show entries and AMBR contenders. Varner sold the car in 1986 to Steve Lykken of Solvang, California, before it became a member of the Blackie Gejeian collection in 2014.
S68 1923 Ford Mod Rod A3042243 $75,000 $125,000 N/R $33,000 -56% By the early 1970s, the San Francisco Bay Area had become known for the wild, psychedelic custom automotive paint jobs that would define the early Street Rod era. Two of the most prolific custom painters based in Northern California were Art Himsl and, for most of that decade, Mike Haas. Haas had returned to the Bay Area in the last days of the ‘60s after moving to Southern California to work for Barris Kustoms for a few years. Going to work for Himsl’s Custom Paint Studio in Concord, California, Haas began developing plans for his own radical Street Rod project—a car that would feature one of his most unique paint jobs to date. Starting with a non-descript fiberglass 1923 Ford Model T roadster body that was the readily-available alternative to original Ford steel sheet metal of the era, Haas tapped local fabricator Tony Cotta and famed dragster chassis builder and engineer Pete Ogden to build a T-bucket-style chassis for the project and began looking at production vehicles for inspiration and styling cues. While the tail lights from a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda were put to use for the custom roadster, the fiberglass rear fascia of a third-generation Chevrolet Corvette was incorporated into the existing fiberglass of the roadster shell to house them. On the other end of the car, Haas fashioned an FKE fiberglass go-kart nose piece and grille assembly from Himsl’s personal collection onto a Ford Model T grille shell to complete the science fiction-inspired theme of the project. Originally, Haas used a Chevrolet 327 CI V-8 from a 1964 Corvette, and the engine would feature varying combinations of twin carburetors, velocity stacks, air scoops, valve covers and intake manifolds over the course of its life in the roadster. Local trim and top upholsterer Kenny Foster was hired to design and produce the car’s interior upholstery and custom top, while Ogden was pressed into service to lace and true the car’s original dragster-inspired front spoke wheels. The rear wheels and tires would also be changed over the years, including E-T 5-spoke and custom wire-wheel variants. As distinct as the body itself was, Haas’ custom paint and graphics were equally distinguishing features; the scheme was bisected lengthwise down the middle of the car, with matching panels and graphics, but in complementary color palettes of blues and greens on the driver’s side and oranges and reds on the passenger side. Originally, the car’s doors were lettered with “Odyssey” when it was debuted in 1972—a name that reinforced the highly-stylized moonscape murals featured across the cowl and sail panels. But, at some point not long after, “Odyssey” was changed in favor of “Mod Rod” in time for the car’s national show tour, where it took the People’s Choice award at the Visalia Roadster Roundup in the fall of 1972. It should be noted that, contrary to popular belief, the car was never built for, nor featured in, the popular television series of the era “Mod Squad” or owned by one of the show’s stars, Michael Cole. The Mod Rod made appearances at essential Street Rod events of the era, including everything from the Detroit Autorama to the legendary “Andy’s Picnic” annually hosted by Andy “The Rodfather” Brizio. Not long after, Haas pulled the car off the car show circuit and put it up for sale. By the time Blackie Gejeian acquired the Mod Rod, several drivetrain modifications had been made from Haas’ original configuration, but the car has largely been preserved in its original livery.
S69 1929 Ford Phaeton Ala Tub A570912 $100,000 $150,000 N/R $38,500 -62% This heavily modified 1929 Ford Phaeton also comes with a name change; originally titled “L.A. Tub” and “My Big Fat Greek Hot Rod” by famed pinstriper and original owner Tommy “The Greek” Otis, it’s now more accurately known and being sold as “Ala Tub.” The “Tub” was built as an homage to the “Ala Kart”—another ’29 Ford (although a roadster pickup truck) show car that Blackie Gejeian helped build the original chassis for in 1956. Ala Kart went on to win the prestigious America’s Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR) award at the Oakland Roadster show in 1958 and 1959, making it one of very few roadsters to win the title more than once. In 2002, Otis worked with well-known illustrator and designer Steve Stanford to base the tribute Phaeton on the most prominent features of Ala Kart: its distinctive paint job and custom grille treatment. The project started with a ’29 Ford Phaeton that Arty Regan found in Rhode Island and brought to his shop, Car Land Auto Body, in Danbury, Connecticut, to begin customizing. Regan also fabricated the car’s custom aluminum roof before it was transported to Tri-C Engineering in Valencia, California, to be completed. With the help of Joe Arnold’s Auto Body in Northridge, California, in performing the final body work and paint, Tommy “The Greek” applied the unique gold and purple Ala Kart-inspired graphics and Bill Marigold laid down the final pinstripes. The car made its debut at the 2006 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California. Otis originally planned to build Ala Tub with a mixture of vintage and new parts, as a modern tribute to Ala Kart, so a modern Ford 302 CI V-8, Ford 5-speed manual transmission and Currie Ford-type 9-inch rear end were installed. The interior upholstery was created and produced by Albert Lara at his shop in North Hollywood, California, while the customizations made to the dashboard and other interior appointments were handled by Tri-C Engineering and Car Land Auto Body. Featuring Volkswagen Golf headlights, a custom radiator built by U.S. Radiator and a restyled ’32 Ford grille shell and nose to house the assembly, the Tub has been a feature car in “Rod & Custom,” on hotrod.com and autoweek.com, as well as a poster vehicle for the 2006 L.A. Roadsters Show and Entry No. 910 for contention in the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster competition at the 2006 Grand National Roadster Show.
S70 1917 Ford T Bucket 1600952 $75,000 $125,000 N/R $29,700 -60% Dan Woods, hailing from the California Central Coast town of Salinas, may be most well-known for his show-car era-defining “Milk Truck” that he built in 1965. At just 18 years old, Woods helped create the bridge between custom car shows and the merchandising industry that would support it. While his Milk Truck was not inspired by a customized model kit that he saw in the magazines of the era, it became an instant hit as a scale model kit of its own. It was a harbinger of things to come, as he went on to build show Rods like the “Ice Truck” and a string of early Ford C-Cab projects for eager customers wanting to be part of the incredibly popular car show circuit of the era. By the ‘70s, Woods had returned home from deployment during the Vietnam War, opened up his Contemporary Carriage Works and was participating in club events with the legendary Early Times Car Club, contributing to the proliferation of the wild, early Brass Era Ford Model T Street Rods that would come to define an entire era. By the middle of that decade, he was selling his “Super T” fiberglass body kits, loosely based on a 1915 Ford Model T, the foundation he’d built his reputation on. These kits would launch a cottage industry of T-bucket kits that could be built at home, and the Street Rod aftermarket made an entire complement of parts available to support it. In 1972, Woods completed this 1917 Model T Street Roadster for a perennial customer, Bill Block. It was not only the first car that Blackie Gejeian would later claim he saw the very first Jaguar independent rear suspension used on, but it also incorporated an innovative front suspension that, collectively, would become another signature Dan Woods feature. The combination of polished brass and chromed components, gold leaf accents and pinstriping, and custom, etched details create an excellent Hot Rod vibe. In true early 1970s fashion, this Dan Woods T-Bucket is fitted with an aluminum Buick V-8 engine and automatic transmission with Hurst ratchet shifter. The car left such an impression on the car show circuit, and Blackie, that it became part of the Gejeian collection and was always one of his favorites.
S71 1927 Midget Race Car N/A $15,000 $20,000 N/R $7,700 -49% In the late 1910s and early ‘20s, oval track racing had become big business in Northern California. With the advent of the “big car” series later known as “sprint cars”—typically an early Ford Model T chassis cut down to its bare necessities with a warmed-over 4-cylinder flathead engine and a handmade body—an opportunity for a series featuring smaller cars emerged. While its exact history is often disputed, the fact that midget racing was born in California is usually agreed upon. Midgets were exactly that: a smaller version of the big car series that were also defined by their weight to engines’ cubic-inch displacement ratio. Blackie Gejeian, a Northern California native and certified car nut, had long expressed his love and admiration for the circle track racing he grew up with in and around Fresno, California, so it came as no surprise to anyone who knew him that he’d add this accurate example of an early midget race car to his collection. Typical of the earliest midgets, this single-seater features a hand-formed boat-tail speedster body and a narrowed 1927 Ford Model T cowl over a pair of equally narrowed frame rails, an early 4-cylinder flathead engine, 12-volt electrical system, two-into-one exhaust system, manual transmission, grooved track-style racing tires on 14-inch steel wheels, transverse leaf rear suspension and a wrapped era-correct “banjo” steering wheel to top it all off. The car’s customized, single-axle trailer is included with the car, which will be sold on a bill of sale.
S72 1938 Farmall Special Midget N/A $40,000 $60,000 N/R $57,750 Mid Edgar Elder, the original driver of this 1938 “Farmall Special” Midget, made a name for himself in the early days of circle track racing as a driver, designer and builder. Born in 1923 and hailing from Fresno, California, Elder grew up around racing and was introduced to motorsports early; his father, “Sprouts” Elder, was not only a legendary motorcycle racer but also half of the team that invented the Harley-Davidson “Knucklehead”-derived Drake midget race car engine, paving young Elder’s way into the sport. During Edgar’s formative years, the Fresno area was a hotbed of early circle track racing development, and he would go on to design and build several well-performing midgets while developing his own driving career—one that spanned the West Coast and brought him to some of the more well-known tracks of the Midwest. The days of Edgar’s race car helmsmanship came to an abrupt end, however, after a particularly serious crash at the famed Gilmore Stadium in Los Angeles before the track was torn down in 1952. Still, he would go on to make a name and career for himself in the sport as he crewed, designed and built winning midgets, even designing and building a few Indy cars by the early ‘60s. The Farmall Special—named for its warmed-over 123 CI Farmall 4-cylinder and originally driven by Edgar—was campaigned across Northern and Central California from 1938 through the mid-‘60s and possesses a provenance made more historically important because of Edgar’s well-rounded and documented contributions to the golden era of independent circle track racing, USAC and the Indy series. The car has been carefully and meticulously restored to its original livery by Fritz Benzler and Jack Krog, becoming an important member of the personal collection of fellow son of Fresno, Blackie Gejeian.
S73 1911 Ford Phaeton T54997 $75,000 $125,000 N/R $49,500 -34% A unique member of the Blackie Gejeian collection, this heavily customized 1911 Ford Phaeton spans both the ‘70s and ‘80s eras of Hot Rodding in America. As a nod to the earliest days of the Street Rod scene, the car features a Brass Era radiator support, headlights, tail lights, cowl-mounted coach lights and two-piece windshield. Even the original-style early Model T steering wheel is a nod to the early to mid-‘70s, when these types of appointments were used often and in varying styles to retain some elements of the original cars. The car features a combination of steel and fiberglass components; the body is fiberglass, while the hood, fenders and running boards are steel. This beautiful creation is topped by a full-size canopy. But that’s where the ‘70s stop and the ’80s start; the car features a Ford Mustang V-6 engine garnished with ‘80s-era billet aluminum valve covers, breathers, air cleaner cover, valley pan and spark plug wire looms. To accentuate the motif, the extended steering column drop in the cabin is also a billet aluminum piece, as well as the gauge panel. Boyd Coddington, the Street Rod builder who would define the ‘80s by perfecting the proportions, fit and finish of professionally built show cars, designed the car’s independent rear suspension system, incorporating a nod to the early days of Hot Rodding and racing with a quick-change center section and four coilover shocks. The wheels, tires and brakes are a blend of both eras, as the ’70s-era wire wheels and tri-bar knock-offs are joined by radial Street Rod tires and 4-wheel power disc brakes. Along with a cream Naugahyde-upholstered interior, this Phaeton presents as a well-appointed blend of two of the most prolific decades of Hot Rodding.
S76 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster WP0EB0918KS173140 $225,000.00 $275,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A A virtual time capsule with only 263 original miles, this 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster presents in near showroom condition. The Speedster was reintroduced in 1989 as the spiritual successor to the iconic roadster that was originally produced during the Porsche 356 era. One of a mere 823 examples specifically earmarked for importation into the U.S., this is a rare tourist delivery with European plates. The Speedster was a one-year-only model for 1989 that paid homage to its ancestor with its competition-inspired silhouette defined by an open-air roadster body augmented with a low-slung and steeply raked windshield. Further design inspiration on the 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster included flared front and rear fenders sourced from the 930 Turbo and the fitment of wide Fuchs alloy wheels mounted on low-profile, high-performance radial tires. Presented in the classic color of Guards Red with a black convertible top that nicely contrasts the Cashmere Beige leather interior with a deviating black on the dashboard and upper door sills, the car is a stunning example of originality and preservation. This 911 Speedster is factory equipped with a long list of desirable options including air conditioning, limited-slip differential, sport seats, short-shift gear lever and a Blaupunkt Charleston radio. Powered by a fuel-injected 3.2L flat-6 engine mated to a G50 5-speed transmission, the drivetrain on this 911 Porsche is legendary for being both bulletproof and delivering amazing performance. The 911 Speedster also came equipped with a superb braking system consisting of cross-drilled and vented rotors with multi-piston calipers derived from Porsche’s championship-winning 917 race car. This beautiful machine comes with its factory-issued Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, original owner’s manual including the Speedster supplement, and two original master keys with the leather pouch. The 1989 Porsche 911 Speedsters were the last of the models produced at the old Stuttgart factory, and this particular car presents a rare opportunity to own an incredibly low-mile example of Porsche history.
S77 1934 Ford 3 Window Coupe 18-894051 $80,000 $100,000 N/R $75,900 -5% One of the most desirable cars in the Hot Rod world, this 1934 Ford 3-Window Coupe refreshingly harkens back to its original days, thanks to a comprehensive frame-off restoration. The 21-stud, 221/85 HP flathead V-8 engine is equipped with aluminum heads, a Stromberg downdraft carburetor and upgraded headers leading to dual exhausts. As in the old days, drivers row their own through a 3-speed manual transmission with a floor-mounted shifter. The level of detail is very impressive, not just from the restoration, but the attention to detail Ford instilled in these game-changing cars in the first place. This example is presented in a stunning black with red pinstripes and matching red 16-inch Kelsey Hayes wire wheels topped with chrome “V-8” hubcaps, including the spare tire mounted above the rear bumper. Appointed with just the right amount of chrome and brightwork, the chrome bumpers and bumper guards, grille, cowl lamps, headlamp bezels, windshield frame and infamous greyhound radiator mascot all sparkle against the highly polished black paint. The handy rumble seat is a great throwback feature that offers auxiliary seating or storage when needed. Open the rear-hinged “suicide” doors and the intimate, cozy interior presents itself with a casual elegance that’s both timeless and effortless. The lovely, deluxe interior features tan mohair upholstery that complements the wood-grain window surrounds and matching dashboard inset with Waltham gauges, plus details of black and brightwork. It was Fords like this that gave people reason to question the idea of purchasing a more expensive make when so much could be had for such a reasonable price. It was, after all, the Great Depression, and everyone was cautious to spend and eager to maintain a conservative appearance. Included in the sale will be an original picture of the car when it was new. Rolling on Firestone gum-dipped wide whitewall tires, catching breezes is easy in this 3-window coupe, thanks to the roll-down rear window that works with the door windows to create a breeze-through effect.
S78 1940 Ford Deluxe convertible 18-5766763 $50,000 $75,000 N/R $45,100 -10% There is something fantastic about finding a car that’s been with the same caretaker for multiple decades, and this 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible has been with the same collector since 1976. A ground-up restoration was completed in 1979, and it emerged in a new coat of the original color, Mandarin Maroon, with a handmade, handstitched convertible folding top with a glass rear window from Bob’s Top, which hasn’t been down since the 1980s. Well equipped, the 24-stud 221/85 HP flathead V-8 engine propels the Ford Deluxe convertible down the road with ease, thanks to the 155 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with a downdraft carburetor and an oil-bath air cleaner, the engine is linked to a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission that rows through the gears. The interior features tan upholstery, ivory appointments upon the golden dashboard, a clock, rebuilt factory radio, vanity mirror, split-bench seat and a driver’s-side spotlight with an interior control handle. The handsome car is further detailed outside with chrome bumpers complete with guards and tips, fender skirts, amber fog lamps nestled in chrome housings, steel wheels matched to the body color and topped with chrome Ford Deluxe hubcaps and trim rings, wide whitewall tires, a radio aerial centrally mounted atop the windshield cowl and much, much more. The look of the 1940 Ford was mildly enhanced from the 1939 Ford, both looking quite similar to one another in most major ways. It combined the era-popular streamlined look with a conservatively restrained Art Deco influence, creating arguably one of the most beautiful Fords ever. Early Ford V-8 enthusiasts will forever argue over whether the 1932 or 1940 model is the best of the era, however, personal opinion and nostalgic memories will always lead to dispute. For those who think the 1940 Ford is the best of all time, here’s a ’40 that has been with the same owner for more than 40 years.
S79 1961 Chevrolet Impala Convertible 11867G136639 $60,000 $80,000 N/R $66,000 Mid This 1961 Chevrolet Impala Convertible was awarded the American Automobile Club of America’s National First Prize for its sensational presentation, the result of a comprehensive restoration to factory-fresh condition. At the dawn of the 1960s, Chevrolet spearheaded GM’s drive to record prosperity with the first generation of models designed under the direction of Bill Mitchell, who succeeded the legendary Harley J. Earl as vice president of General Motors’ Styling Section. Mitchell’s influence became obvious when—after years of growing tail fins and excess chrome—the full-size 1961 Chevrolets emerged with only the slightest suggestion of those most prominent features of the 1959 and 1960 models. Designed by Chevrolet Styling Chief Clare MacKichan under Mitchell’s influence, the 1961 Chevrolet was all new. In place of the Earl-designed fins was a bobtail motif of two beads beginning in a V between the tail lights and flowing forward to define body-side accents, which were emphasized with narrow chromed spears on Bel Air and Impala models. The front-end design was likewise a conservative one, while leaving no doubt that this was a Chevrolet. The new cars also offered a larger greenhouse to counter earlier complaints of insufficient headroom. This sharp Impala convertible is the 1961 Chevrolet at its finest, combining beautiful Midnight Blue paint over laser-straight sheet metal with new or repolished chrome, a power-operated white soft top and a tri-tone blue interior. Chromed fender spears, front and rear bumper guards, bright stone guards, a driver’s outside mirror and spinner wheel covers over wide whitewall radials add flair to this tastefully flashy Impala. A 283/230 HP V-8 with 4-barrel carburetion and dual exhaust, Powerglide 2-speed automatic and power steering deliver effortless performance, while tinted glass, a Deluxe steering wheel, windshield washers, pushbutton AM radio with power antenna and a tissue dispenser beneath the dash round out the list of luxury options. Offered with the owner’s manual, this 1961 Impala convertible‘s immaculate overall condition and classic Chevrolet style make it a wonderful choice for any premier Bowtie collection.
S80 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible VC57S190396 $75,000 $100,000 N/R $101,750 2% A ground-up restoration was performed on this 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible, a solid example that comes from the car-friendly climate of Arizona. One of the most difficult tasks faced by Chevrolet’s mid-1950s design crew was to successfully restyle the 1957 models, which were the last of the three-year cycle that began in 1955. Complicating the crew’s efforts were all-new models from Ford and Chrysler that, ironically, have aged, while the ’57 Bel Air has matured like a fine wine. Chevrolet Chief Designer Clare MacKichan once recalled the demanding challenge of facing the brand new models the competition was poised to unleash against Chevrolet: “What we were supposed to do was beat them but not change the basic shape … we did manage to get entirely new graphics in the front, and the back was pretty different looking, too … we just did everything we could to change those cars.” Indeed, the success of the 1957 Chevrolet was in the lack of excess so prevalent at the time, as this gorgeous 1957 Bel Air convertible aptly demonstrates. Finished in Matador Red with a new correct red and silver interior featuring tinted glass, a day/night mirror, tissue dispenser, restored gauges and upgraded sound system, the Bel Air is capped by a new, white convertible soft top that has always remained in the upright position to maintain tautness, significantly adding to the car’s showroom presentation. The car is well adorned with front and rear bumper guards, dual chromed outside mirrors, door-handle nail guards, sill stone guards, a fluted trim strip between the rear fins that matches the Bel Air’s body-side inserts, and a gold rear license plate frame. Full-size spinner wheel covers and wide whitewall tires complete the exterior, and new springs and shocks ensure a factory-correct ride height. Powered by Chevrolet’s 4-barrel, dual-exhaust 283/220 HP Super Turbo-Fire V-8 engine mated to a rare 3-speed manual transmission, the Bel Air also features power steering, which rounds out this lovely Chevrolet’s many desirable assets.
S81 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 194676S109881 $60,000 $80,000 N/R $60,500 Mid A comprehensive ground-up restoration was completed on this very attractive 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible more than 30 years ago, at which time it was refinished in the correct, original Nassau Blue metallic lacquer. It has been prudently stored in a climate-controlled environment ever since, resulting in its present overall condition. Few changes were made to Chevrolet’s Corvette for the 1966 model year, as engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov continued his time-proven approach of continued refinements, even while cooking up such ground-breaking advances as the 4-wheel disc brakes and big-block powerplants, both of which were introduced in 1965. By that time, planning was already well underway for a third-generation Corvette, drawing both the engineering and styling departments’ focus away from the existing model. Significant changes included new hood script, a new grille insert, new seats and backup lights as standard equipment. Sold new at Prolo Chevrolet in Santa Cruz, California, to local resident William Shaffer on January 13, 1966, this handsome black-plate Sting Ray convertible embodies the sunny spirit of 1960s California with its bright combination of Nassau Blue paint, white soft top, body-matching blue auxiliary hardtop and Classic White and blue interior. As an original California car, it was factory equipped with the state-mandated Air Injection Reaction emission-control system and air pump, all of which is original on this car. The base 250 HP version of the 327 CI small-block V-8 was dropped for 1966, when it was replaced by the previously optional L75 300 HP engine, the powerplant propelling this example in concert with a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. Additionally equipped with full-size spinner wheel covers, a teakwood steering wheel, AM/FM pushbutton radio and a power antenna, it has received recent brake work and rides on new white-stripe radial tires. Documentation includes the original warranty booklet and Protect-O-Plate, the original California Highway Patrol pollution-control inspection slip, owner’s guide and AM/FM radio instructions in a plastic pouch.
S82 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner B3LC129704 $50,000 $75,000 N/R $39,600 -21% A California car driven just 44,000 miles, this 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner can be described as a mild custom, but such a generic term hardly does justice to its magnificent execution, which includes an Art Chrisman-built flathead V-8 in addition to a custom top and leather interior upholstery by the legendary Eddie Martinez. The year 1952 brought an end to the most tumultuous period in the history of Ford Motor Company, and a brand new model returned in 1953 to bask in the celebration of the company’s 50th anniversary. Designed by George Walker, the 1952 models were well received by the public and, stylistically, remained little changed through their three-year run. The new Ford had an all-new body with a one-piece curved windshield, a single bullet in the center of the chromed grille bar, frenched headlights, small round tail lights and imitation intakes on the rear quarter panels. Buyers could choose from the base Mainline, the intermediate Customline and the uppermost Crestline series, the latter including extra chrome trim and deluxe wheel covers and available only with Ford’s 239 CI flathead V-8. Chosen to pace the 1953 Indianapolis 500, the Crestline Sunliner ranked as the most expensive and prestigious of any Ford, and with almost 20 available options, it could be made quite flashy and luxurious. Restored in frame-off fashion, this 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner first impresses with its show-quality Raven Black paint and Eddie Martinez convertible top, which has always remained upright. It also features excellent chrome and brightwork, all of which is either new or polished to its original gleam, new Firestone wide whitewall tires and a detailed engine compartment and undercarriage. The Chrisman-built 239 CI flathead V-8 engine runs Hollywood mufflers and dual exhaust, and it’s backed by a Ford-O-Matic transmission. Options include power steering, backup lights, factory heater, dual outside mirrors, tinted glass, a Deluxe pushbutton radio and a very rare Appleton spotlight.
S83 1952 Mercedes-Benz 170S Custom 1910100343252 $350,000.00 $450,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Details make all the difference in the world, and sometimes it’s the minutest details that make the biggest difference. This 1952 Mercedes-Benz 170S Sedan is anything but subtle, but it is packed with subtle details that easily make it one of the most unique custom cars in the world. The custom frame-off restoration was completed by Samson Design in Marshall, Missouri. It was displayed at the 2016 SEMA Show and was one of the Great 8 finalists at the 2016 Detroit Autorama show. The 6.2L aluminum LS3 V-8 engine is well dressed with a custom engine cover, Billet Specialties serpentine system, stainless-steel headers and exhaust, and much more. Backed by a Turbo 400 3-speed automatic transmission, a chromoly driveshaft reaches back to a narrowed Chevrolet 10-bolt rear end. The Samson Design custom chassis also hosts Heidts independent front and rear suspensions with QA1 coilovers, 4-wheel power disc brakes and custom one-off Wheelsmith wheels with Mercedes-Benz emblems wrapped in Yokohama S Drive tires. Inside, a custom dashboard spills over into a custom firewall while a bespoke, hand-stitched, mocha-colored leather interior offers a number of unique design elements, including a custom center console, contrasting-color stitching, satin-finished brightwork, buckled belt handle for the console compartment, door panel map pockets, custom gauges and much more. Tan short-loop carpeting finishes the interior overall while a one-off single-piece windshield and side glass by Glass Masters offer clear visibility and a custom touch that’s so subtle only the most diehard Mercedes-Benz fans will likely pick up on it. Even the headliner and pedals are custom. A 2-inch wedge chop has been applied to the roof, which plays nicely with the grille that has been leaned back by an inch, while the fenders and running boards have been handcrafted as single-piece units. Finished in Mercedes-Benz Mystic Brown, this classic custom Mercedes-Benz 170S is likely the only one of its kind and is certain to raise eyebrows and turn heads.
S84 1939 Lincoln Zephyr AZ330634 $200,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A A sensational interpretation of the daring design originally conceived by Edsel Ford and his No. 1 stylist, the talented Eugene T. “Bob” Gregorie, this show-stopping 1939 Lincoln Zephyr takes their collaboration into a higher realm of bold creativity. The foundation for this one-off Rod is a solid one, constructed of 2-inch chromoly tubing that was tig-welded and powder coated to ensure lasting finish and durability. The driving force within this striking Art Deco ride is a 6.0L LS2 V-8 engine mated to a 4L60E automatic transmission and 3.55 final drive with Positraction. For the smoothest ride possible, it features independent suspension front and rear, with a Corvette-style independent rear suspension. Adjustable coilover shocks are present at all four corners along with vacuum-assisted Wilwood disc brakes with vented rotors. It is impossible to imagine a more ground-hugging rendition of the Lincoln Zephyr’s classic styling, which is emphasized by an aggressive chop of the roof and a beltline midsection channelling that challenges every convention. Custom Cinnamon Candy and Vanilla two-tone paint with a gold flake accents the Lincoln’s curvaceous contours, and the slammed look is underscored by custom rear fender skirts and specially sculpted bright accents in the form of chromed body-side spears and dropped slim-line bumpers; rear fender spears terminate at the lower tail, cleverly housing twin chromed exhaust outlets, and wide whitewall tires on custom alloy wheels advance the luxury cruiser theme. Suicide doors open to show off a brilliant interior that rivals the exterior for creativity, presenting a custom dash that flows into a center console sculpted to match the rear fenders’ triple horizontal bar motif. Polished billet controls and trim, a tilt column, power windows, backup camera and Auto Meter vintage-look gauges clustered in a polished oval bezel are joined by snappy Vanilla upholstery and Maroon wool carpeting, the latter of which was also used to trim the trunk. An estimated 7,500 hours were invested in the making of this one-off, custom hand-built 1939 Lincoln Zephyr.
S85 1957 Ford Thunderbird F7FH394888 $275,000.00 $350,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Within the universe of classic 1955-57 Thunderbirds, the handful of 1957 models with F-code engines are the crown jewels. Known today as “F-Birds,” those rare Thunderbirds came from the factory with an optional 312 CI 4-barrel V-8 equipped with a Paxton-McCulloch VR57 supercharger for a robust 300 HP. Of the 21,380 T-Birds produced for 1957, only 196 came with the top-level F-code Thunderbird Special powerplant. This 1957 F-Bird is the only known example finished in Azure Blue, according to the F-Bird Registry. Special ordered with a non-porthole hardtop, the Thunderbird was delivered new to Craig Wood Ford in Ridgewood, New Jersey, which is documented by the factory invoice that comes with the car. Professionally restored in body-off fashion, the F-Bird earned an Antique Automobile Club of America National First Prize in 2017 at Hershey, Pennsylvania. In addition to its rare supercharged engine, the Thunderbird is equipped with a white interior, Ford-O-Matic transmission, signal-seeking radio, Firestone wide whitewall tires and turbine-style Ford wheel covers. The $719 supercharger option also added improved cylinder heads, a special camshaft and a dual-point distributor, making the F-code Thunderbird capable of 0-60 MPH times in less than 6 seconds and a top speed approaching 130 MPH. As Ford’s answer to the fuel-injected Corvette, the F-code engine transformed the T-Bird from luxury sports car to an all-out performer that could easily hold its own against the two-seater from Chevrolet. In addition to providing stiff showroom competition for the Corvette, the F-code option also homologated the supercharger for NASCAR racing, where Thunderbirds out-performed Corvettes during the 1957 Daytona Spring Speed Week Trials. The two-seater 1955-57 Thunderbirds rank among today’s most collectible classic automobiles. With its supercharged engine, one-off color and immaculate restoration, this F-code 1957 Thunderbird is one of the most coveted of the breed.
S86 1955 Bentley S1 Freestone & Webb Saloon B202LAN $275,000.00 $350,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A With the 1955 debut of the new Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and its Bentley S-type sibling, British magazine “The Autocar” raved, “The latest Bentley model offers a degree of safety, comfort and performance that is beyond the experience and perhaps even the imagination of the majority of the world’s motorists.” Praise indeed, but considering its price at nearly twice that of a top-range Cadillac, it really had to deliver. In the case of this rather singular example, its first owner, Hollywood mogul Jack Warner, paid considerably more than even that. While the factory-bodied “Standard Steel” versions accounted for the vast majority of the 3,107 Bentley S1 production run, a mere 145 were coachbuilt, and only a fraction of those were completed by the noted London firm Freestone & Webb, which rarely handcrafted as many as 15 cars in a single year. Such exclusivity commanded a premium that could only be justified by higher levels of refinement, detail and craftsmanship. From the first year of production, Warner’s 1955 Bentley S1 Saloon is further distinguished as one of only seven built to this design by Freestone & Webb, as well as the first and only one in left-hand drive configuration. Warner retained it until his passing in 1978. And yet, it still wouldn’t have felt antique by then, as the S1 with its 4887cc straight-6 mated to GM’s 4-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission was capable of 103 MPH with 0-60 MPH in 13.1 seconds. An all-new chassis and front suspension setup, allied to electric ride control to vary the rear shock absorber settings, ensured comfort and road manners kept pace with the performance. Warner’s spacious and airy S1 has the further benefit of power steering, which didn’t become standard until 1957. Exquisitely elegant and extremely rare, the Jack Warner Bentley has one further distinguishing achievement: its movie role alongside Bette Davis in the 1964 thriller “Dead Ringer.”
S87 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Roadster 876317 $200,000 $250,000 $137,500 -31% Built on December 7, 1961, and dispatched to Jaguar Cars New York on December 29, this 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster that has been with one caring owner since 1982 is one of the first 2,086 left-hand drive examples produced with flat floor pans, a feature that is believed to have ceased production in May 1962, and it’s a beautiful demonstration of the restorer’s art at its finest. Its rotisserie restoration was commenced by JC Classics, Inc., of Burlington, Wisconsin, and completed by Ringbrothers in Spring Green, Wisconsin, in June 2017. Inspired by its predecessor—the three-time Le Mans-winning D-Type—the E-Type was ahead of its time as a road car. In the mid-1950s, even dedicated sports-racing cars were almost universally still based on a tube chassis wrapped in non-stressed bodywork and equipped with live rear axles and drum brakes. When the E-Type made its world-famous 1961 debut, its appeal was deeper than its curvaceous sheet metal; it was actually more advanced mechanically than the D-Type, and right out of the showroom it was almost as fast at the top end. It had an exceptionally strong monocoque central structure, a sturdy rectangular-tube front subframe carrying the engine, front suspension and ancillaries, and an elegantly designed independent rear suspension with inboard disc brakes. And yet, in contrast, there was still nothing like a set of chromed knock-off wire wheels to finish off that gorgeous exterior. At the outset, the Jaguar E-Type satisfied the diehard enthusiast’s lust for a road car that not only looked like a racer, but also performed like one, all the while offering all the comforts of a GT machine; it still feeds that lust today as a true classic. But, don’t take our word for it. This 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster proves the point that time has not depleted the E-Type’s charm, but enhanced it instead. Powered by the time-honored 3.8L twin-cam inline-6 engine with 4-speed manual transmission, its black exterior finish and sharp red leather cockpit make a stirring pairing that play to the Jaguar’s classic beauty. Documented with a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, this artfully restored Series 1 E-Type needs nothing but to be enjoyed in top-down fashion on a long, winding road.
S88 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 WP0AF2A95BS785585 $500,000.00 $700,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A One of only 600 examples produced, this 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 has traveled a mere 3,970 original miles since new. The GT3 RS 4.0 is from the 997 era and holds sacred status within the Rennsport-inspired food chain at Porsche. Like its forefather—the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7—history will prove this GT3 RS 4.0 to be an epic high-watermark car. There is one significant reason why: it is the last 911 GT3 equipped with a Mezger engine paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. Named after its designer Hans Mezger, the Mezger engine is one of the most revered powerplants ever produced by Porsche. It powered not only the 930 Turbo road car, but also a string of legendary race cars, including the 934, 935, 956, 962 and GT1. The GT3 RS in subsequent model years—991 series—would mandate a PDK transmission exclusively and phase out the Mezger engine for a new replacement block, one internally referred to as the 9A1. The rifle bolt-action of the 6-speed manual provides tactile gratification preferred by many over the dual-clutch PDK. Powered by a 4.0L/500 HP flat-6 engine, the GT3 RS gained displacement over its 3.8L brethren from a longer-stroke 80.4mm crankshaft directly out of the 997 RS Race Car. Likewise, the titanium connecting rods and front dive planes were sourced from the RSR race car. Weighing in at a svelte 2,988 pounds, Porsche took advantage of lightweight carbon fiber for the front fenders, front decklid and rear wing. The wide body enables the fitment of steamroller tires mounted on lightweight alloy center-lock wheels. Presented in the iconic color combination of Carrara White with red and silver body accents, this 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is considered by many as the purest example of the breed.
S89 1973 Ferrari 246GTS 05498 $375,000.00 $400,000.00 Unknown Unknown N/A By the late 1960s, Fiat had taken a 50% ownership position in Ferrari; the infusion of capital from this new relationship enabled Enzo Ferrari to not only maintain his cherished racing program, but also to create and market a more affordable sports car to challenge the growing popularity of the Porsche 911. This new challenger to the 911 was a midengine sports car that carried a smaller V-6 engine that could be shared with other models in the Fiat family. While this V-6 engine was adapted by Lampredi—from an earlier racing engine championed by Ferrari’s deceased son Alfredo “Dino”—this new model of car would also bear the Dino name. First debuted as a Pininfarina concept at the 1965 Paris Motor Show, the first production Dinos released in 1968 were penned by famed Pininfarina designer Leonardo Fioravanti and featured 2.0L DOHC V-6 engines; but, they were replaced in 1969 with 2.4L engines breathing through three Weber downdraft carburetors and mated to a 5-speed transaxle integrated into the transversely mounted engine. In this later 246 form, the curvaceous Dino featured an all-steel body constructed by Scaglietti in either a GT (coupe) or targa-top GTS configuration. The Dino broke new ground in that it was an unusual layout for Ferrari, a midengine production car with a V-6 engine and electronic ignition—the Dinoplex capacitive discharge system developed by Magnetti Marelli—and the first production Ferrari to feature direct rack-and-pinion steering, similar to that used on the company’s racing cars. This example is a U.S.-specification 1973 Ferrari 246 GTS—Serial No. 05498—with just 23,475 miles on the odometer since new. Finished in Azure Blue paint with a black interior, this Dino features luxury options such as air conditioning, power windows and Cromodora wheels, as well as the original books, tools and jack.
S90 1958 AC Ace BEX1019 $400,000.00 $425,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Based upon a sports racer designed by John Tojeiro and introduced at the London Motor Show in October 1953, the Ace remains the signature product of Britain’s AC. Equipped with fully independent suspension and sleek bodywork reminiscent of contemporary Ferrari Barchettas, the Ace won nearly universal praise from its inception. After 220 Aces were built with AC’s proprietary engine, the 1971cc Bristol Six was available in 1956, creating the Ace-Bristol, which was inspired by British racer Ken Rudd. Initially producing 103 HP and rising to 125 HP in D2 specification, Bristol’s powerplant traced its origins to BMW’s legendary prewar 328. This 1958 AC Ace-Bristol is one of 466 produced between 1956 and 1962. Powered by the top D2 2.0L inline 6-cylinder engine, it is a two-owner car with less than 20,000 miles of use since 1958. It benefits handsomely from a comprehensive restoration completed in 2017 by Vintage Auto Restoration and Repair in Roanoke, Virginia. In addition to its D2 Bristol engine, the car is equipped with a close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive, triple Solex downdraft carburetors and front disc and rear drum brakes. Visually striking in Princess Blue Metallic with Dark Blue British leather upholstery, it features Smiths instruments, a Moto-Lita wood-rimmed steering wheel and chrome wire-spoke wheels. Accompanying items include a history and restoration booklet, owner’s and workshop manuals, an original toolkit, an original Le Mans racing radiator cowling and roll bar, top bows, convertible top, tonneau cover, side curtains with storage bag and two sets of keys. In addition to providing one of the finest driving experiences in all of postwar motoring, Bristol-powered Aces were brilliant on the track, winning three successive SCCA E-Production championships between 1957 and 1959, two D-Production championships in 1960 and 1961, and a 1959 Le Mans class victory. The Ace-Bristol is notable for being considered one of the best postwar sports cars, and this car is a stellar example of the breed.
S91 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Roadster 1E14771 $190,000.00 $210,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A After an unprecedented level of success throughout the 1950s with its XK120/140/150 line of sports cars, Jaguar needed something new to carry its flag into the 1960s. In March 1961, that something new was revealed to the world in the form of the E-Type, or XKE. Conceived as a road-going evolution of Jaguar’s Le Mans-winning D-Type, the E-Type employed all the latest racing technologies of the day, including monocoque construction, 4-wheel disc brakes and independent front and rear suspension, and it was all wrapped in a lithesome Malcolm Sayer-penned body that spurred no less than Enzo Ferrari to dub it, “the most beautiful car ever made.” Powered initially by a 3.8L and later a 4.2L DOHC inline 6-cylinder engine, the early MkI E-Types were immensely popular with more than 38,000 examples being sold up until 1968. The example on offer is a 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster, one of just 5,888 left-hand drive Series 1 roadsters produced. Finished in lustrous red paint with a black interior and convertible top, this California car had just 69,480 miles on its odometer prior to the car’s restoration. Equipped with the highly desirable, larger-displacement 4.2L engine, this E-Type’s powertrain also boasts triple SU carburetors and a 4-speed manual gearbox feeding the engine’s 265 HP through a 3.31 limited-slip differential. With its independent suspension and torsion bar springing at the front and independent suspension at the rear, the E-Type handles deftly and stops just as swiftly thanks to power-assisted 4-wheel disc brakes. This potent combination enabled period testers to reach a top speed of 153 MPH, with a 0-60 MPH time of just 7.6 seconds. Other special features include covered headlamps, dashboard toggle switches, Smiths instruments, chrome wire wheels, the original tool kit and jack, original owner’s manual and a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate.
S92 1996 Porsche 911/993 Turbo WP0AC299XTS375394 $160,000.00 $180,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland during March 1995, Porsche’s eagerly anticipated Type 993 Turbo immediately captivated the motoring press and the company’s most demanding customers with cutting-edge specifications and massive performance. More than two decades later, it remains coveted by knowledgeable Porsche enthusiasts, and this very well-preserved, low-mileage car is a prime example. At launch, the 911 Turbo was featured in virtually countless magazine road test reports, routinely achieving 0-62 MPH acceleration times of just 4.4 seconds en route to a 180 MPH top-end charge. Featuring a 959-derived all-wheel drive system with an 80/20 rear/front torque split, the new 911 Turbo was powered by the M64/60 version of Porsche’s air-cooled flat-6 engine, force-fed by twin KKK K16 turbochargers and twin intercoolers. Developing 400 HP at 5,750 RPM, it most importantly delivered 400 lb-ft of peak torque at just 4,500 engine revolutions. This example remains in highly original condition and clearly benefits from single ownership from new. Just 25,780 miles are currently on the odometer of this gem of German ingenuity. In addition to its famous powerplant, this 911 Turbo features a 6-speed manual transmission, 4-wheel power disc brakes with vented rotors and red calipers, a rear wing, VDO instruments, air conditioning, power-adjustable seats and power windows. Retaining the original silver paint and gray leather interior, the Porsche rides on a set of 5-spoke aluminum Turbo Twist wheels. A mere 1,357 examples of the Type 993 Turbo were produced for the 1996 model year for the North American market. Accordingly, this rare one-owner example of Porsche’s greatness marks a thrilling and compelling find for both collectors and true driving enthusiasts.
S93 1967 Porsche 911 Coupe 307693 $125,000 $150,000 $93,500 -25% Presented in a classic Ivory finish, this 1967 Porsche 911 is appointed with the uber-desirable low-back Recaro sport seats stitched with desirable red leather. Fitted with the iconic and period-correct Fuchs wheels, this short-wheelbase/long-hood coupe certainly checks all the right boxes for lovers of air-cooled Porsches. First introduced into the American market for 1967, this particular car mimics the 911S that represented a quantum leap in performance over the standard 911. The engine was heavily modified with an increased 9.8:1 compression ratio, forged aluminum pistons, higher lift-duration camshafts, increased valve overlap, larger intake and exhaust valves, low-restriction exhaust system and a Weber 40 IDA carburetion system producing a robust output of 180 HP. That power translates into 1.47 HP per 1 CI of displacement, a remarkable performance metric from a naturally aspirated engine from more than 50 years ago. The same thoroughness of engineering was also applied to the rest of the car. The 4-wheel disc-brake system was upgraded with vented rotors for increased heat dissipation, the suspension was equipped with both front and rear anti-roll bars, Koni shock absorbers were installed as standard issue on all four corners, and lightweight forged alloy wheels were fitted to reduce rotating mass. In what would go on to become a signature styling statement, the car featured a one-year-only 15×4.5-inch Fuchs wheels.
S94 1959 Plymouth Sport Fury M294100126 $150,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A With the decade concluding, many consider that Plymouth saved the best for last. The stylish lines of the 1957 release blossomed into fitted fins and chrome-laden accents on the 1959 Sport Fury. Indeed, the stylish idea of power resulted in one advertisement from that model season that showed the car amidst the charging steeds at that start of a horse race at Florida’s Hialeah Park, “Full of Fury and Ready to Run!” While positioned toward a lower-cost market segment of buyers, there was nothing small about this 118-inch wheelbase machine, which in this case is powered by the polyspherical 318 A-series OHV engine rated at 260 HP and featuring a cast iron block, 9.0:1 compression, a Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust. This engine is in turn backed by an automatic transmission with pushbutton operation and a semi-floating rear axle design. Chrysler engineers had only recently debuted the Torsion-Aire independent torsion bar front suspension, coupled here with longitudinal rear leaf springs, power steering and power hydraulic drum brakes. With body lines from the creative genius of Virgil Exner, the exterior of this hardtop Fury is appointed in rich Bronze Metallic paint with a white-painted roof, replete with the faux decklid wheel cover, widening side spears, gold-toned Fury trim and broadly fashioned bumpers. Inside is a bronze-hue vinyl interior with patterned tone-matched cloth inserts, a padded dash, the pushbutton radio, two-spoke steering wheel and Jet Age dash appointments. With its full-size wheel covers and whitewall tires, the result is an epic representation of late 1950s automotive styling. The uniquely chosen angles to the fins, cab pillars, grille and wheel openings were part of what led to Exner’s fame in this era. As Chrysler’s best known response to the basic Chevrolet and Ford brands, most Sport Furys of this era did not survive the rigors of shifting cultural desires, making cars like this 1959 example both desirable and exclusive in the modern collector car market.
S95 1972 Ferrari 365GTC/4 15359 $300,000.00 $350,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Chronicled by a Marcel Massini history report, this 1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4 has a mere 51,742 miles on the odometer and has benefited from a bare metal restoration completed by Ambrosio Concepts and a mechanical service performed by Maranello Motorworks of Colorado in October 2017. Presented in a correct Rosso Corso exterior and contrasting black leather interior, the car is fitted with the optional and highly desirable Borrani wire wheels that feature chrome spokes, polished aluminum rims and three-prong, knock-off centers. Delivered new to Bill Harrah’s Modern Classic Motors in March 1972, this Ferrari 365 GTC/4 is one of only 500 units produced for worldwide distribution during its relatively short 18-month manufacturing period. The 365 GTC/4 joined the Ferrari range at the 1971 Geneva Auto Show, ostensibly as the replacement to the outgoing 365 GTC. The body was penned by the esteemed Pininfarina Design Studio’s Leonardo Fioravanti, whose previous masterpieces had included the 246 Dino and 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Powered by the same 4.4L Colombo V-12 DOHC engine of the sister Daytona, the 365 GTC/4 was a formidable performer with its six-Weber 38 DCOE carburetion setup, 5-speed gearbox and ZF-type limited-slip differential. While the Daytona was considered raw and brutish, the GTC/4 was regarded as the “Gentleman’s GT Car” that came equipped with power steering, air conditioning and a rear-mounted hydraulic self-leveling system as standard equipment. The seductive wedge shape of the 365 GTC/4 was achieved through the usage of side-draft carburetion to enable an extremely low hood profile—as opposed to down-draft carburation on the Daytona. Many consider the 365 GTC/4 as one of the finest Ferraris of the Enzo era; it was a car that combined classic V-12 performance with civilized yet exciting road manners and creature comforts. This beautiful Ferrari 365 GTC/4 is a well-documented example with books, tools, a history file and service records.
S96 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible 16762137 $150,000 $200,000 $140,250 -6% No expense was spared with this 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible’s nut-and-bolt restoration completed with an investment of more than $240,000. Driven fewer than 100 miles since, it has been museum displayed or in climate-controlled storage to preserve its marvelous condition. The Buick Skylark was one of four custom concept cars—all created by styling legend Harley Earl while he was at the top of his game as GM’s design maven—presented to the public at the 1953 General Motors Motorama car show in New York City. It was Buick’s 50th anniversary and the Skylark proved up to the celebration, even against such entries as the first Corvette, the Oldsmobile Fiesta and the opulent Cadillac Eldorado; indeed, with its price tag of $5,000—compared to the Cadillac’s astronomical $7,750—the Skylark outsold them all. Riding low with a custom chopped and chromed convertible top frame, windshield, door glass and specially constructed and lowered seats, the Skylark featured the lowered upper-body edge and “beltline dip” that were Harley Earl trademarks. A widened and chromed grille, glittering chromed wire wheels and wide whitewall tires inside radiused wheel arches, full-length chromed body-side spears that mimicked the dipped beltline, rear quarter badges, twin bullet tail lights and “Ventiport delete” front fenders all contributed to the Skylark’s sporting presence. Within that flashy package was Buick’s 322/188 HP 4-barrel Nailhead V-8, a Dynaflow automatic transmission, independent front and live-axle rear suspension and 4-wheel power drum brakes. One of 1,690 produced, this beautifully restored Skylark shimmers in rare Light Patriot Blue trimmed in a two-tone blue and white narrow-pleat leather interior with nylon carpeting. Skylark owners enjoyed all the extra features seen here, from the heater/defroster and Buick Selectronic radio with power antenna to the power steering, power windows, power front seat, in-dash clock and power convertible top. Today, ownership of all four Motorama convertibles constitutes a “Grand Slam” among automotive enthusiasts and an enviable acquisition of considerable historic value.
S97 2005 Ford GT PB-1 1FAFP90S25Y400037 $800,000.00 $1,000,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A In early May 2004, this 2005 Ford GT prototype, built in March 2004 and designated Plant Build Phase 1 Car No. 1 (PB1-1), arrived at the sprawling Nardò Technical Center automotive proving ground (Prototipo S.p.A.) in Apulia in southern Italy. Ford’s mission: to test the durability of the powertrain, certify the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires and, most importantly, to show that the Ford GT could meet and exceed the Dearborn company’s stringent R205 specification targeting a minimum top speed of 205 MPH. With ace test drivers Mark McGowan and Chris Porritt alternating at the controls, PB1-1 was the first vehicle to certify the Ford GT’s legendary 205 MPH top speed and clocked hour after hour of speeds in excess of 200 MPH, at one point shattering the 205 MPH goal and reaching a certified high speed of 209.1 MPH on May 4, 2004. Referred to by Ford as “The Nardò Car,” PB1-1 proved what insiders already knew—that Ford had produced a genuine world-class supercar, one entirely worthy of the hallowed GT designation. PB1-1’s arrival at the Nardò Technical Center’s 7.8-mile circular test track was itself a milestone in the development of the Ford GT, a process that challenged Ford’s vast technical resources to their maximum. Turning the GT’s sleek GT40-inspired body design into reality required reversing the normal process of assembling power teams, interior designers and chassis engineers, who would normally then turn their product over to a design team for packaging. In this case, it was the exterior design that dictated all other processes. When all had come together in the completed design, a series of prototypes were built, progressing from fiberglass-bodied “Work Horse” cars used for basic testing and then to three 95% correct “Centennial Cars” built at Saleen Special Vehicles in Troy, Michigan, which were then followed by 15 Saleen-built “Confirmation Prototypes.” Then began the Plant Build phase, the first vehicles built to test the actual production processes. PB1-1 was the first Ford GT built during Phase 1 production, which encompassed the body plant in Mayflower, Ohio, Saleen in Troy for paint, interior and suspension, and final assembly at the plant in Wixom, Michigan. Sent to Europe to test at Nardò in May 2004, PB1-1 was the first production Ford GT finished in Speed Yellow and trimmed with black stripes. It was tested at Nardò in full street trim, but was also fitted with a full roll cage, Sparco racing harnesses and a driver’s window net, all in service to driver safety. Before being shipped home, PB1-1 ended up at the Nürburgring Nordschleife for manufacture day, where it became the first Ford GT to run Nürburgring (with Chris Porritt behind the wheel), and then also spent some time in Europe doing press drives. PB1-1 was also utilized for the Ford GT Western Drive, a two-day drive to convince senior management that the GT was ready to go into production. The day following the Western drive, PB1-1 was then exercised in a drive to put expert ratings to all key attributes, such as ride, steering and handling. In addition to featuring all four options—stripes, lightweight BBS forged alloy wheels, red-painted brake calipers and a McIntosh stereo—PB1-1 was later fitted with functioning front brake-cooling scoops in place of the non-functioning production units, as well as cooling airfoils at the leading edge of the front radiator outlet in preparation for development of the Hoosier R6 track tire and support-vehicle duty at several track events. After all the drives were completed, PB1-1 was used to compare the production units coming off the line at Wixom. Subsequently, the car was then put into the SVT vehicle count for use on other projects. PB1-1 was the first Ford GT prototype to be driven by an automotive journalist, specifically for a cover feature in the July 2004 issue of “Top Gear Magazine.” It was later purchased from Ford/SVT in 2008 during the third Ford GT Rally charity auction at Shelby American in Las Vegas, an event open only to Ford GT owners. PB1-1 has remained with one private owner since then, and it has been at Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance and the Carlisle Ford Nationals; the car has also even spent time on display at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, Michigan. Today the car enjoys its significant role in establishing the GT’s most important credential: the ability to blast through the 200 MPH speed barrier on the way to becoming a Ford performance legend.
S99 1959 Porsche 356A Cabriolet D 86233 $250,000 $300,000 $313,500 5% The 1959 Porsche 356A Convertible D is a special one-year-only model with very limited production, and it occupies a unique niche in the Porsche 356 lineage. The Convertible D served as both the spiritual successor to the beloved A-series Speedster and a precursor to the later B-series single-grille Roadster. This stunningly beautiful Convertible D is presented in Meissen Blue with a red interior—as documented by the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity—and is equipped with the original matching-numbers engine. Cosmetically exceptional with proper panel alignment and uniform gaps on the doors, engine lid and trunk, this machine also features quality brightwork with gorgeous paint application. The same high standards of excellence are reflected in its mechanical condition with a properly detailed engine compartment, suspension and undercarriage. This Convertible D has been made roadworthy by Porsche marque expert Jack Skaggs after a meticulous restoration. By the final model year of the Speedster in 1958, Porsche realized that a slightly more sophisticated version of the minimalist sports car was in order. With production at maximum capacity with its normal coachbuilders Reutter and Karmann, Porsche commissioned Drauz Karosserie to build this specialized drop top. The Convertible D distinguished itself from the spartan Speedster with the following changes: a taller windshield, glass side windows with wind-up mechanisms (as opposed to side curtains), coupe-style touring seats replacing the racing-style sport seats, and side pockets added to the door cards. The Convertible D’s folding top was extensively revised to conform to the taller windshield, the glass wind-up windows and a larger rear window, as well as the addition of an extra steel crossbow and the fitment of rain gutters. This example is documented with its factory-issued Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. There is no doubt that this rare example stands on its own as one of the most collectible and sought-after of all the 1959 Porsche 356 models.
S100 1955 Porsche Tempo Mikafa Sport Camper 145310 $100,000 $150,000 $187,000 25% While Mikafa was known for aircraft manufacturing, the company decided it was time to expand its capabilities by producing exceptionally well-appointed campers between 1955 and 1959. This example is a Sport Camper, reportedly one of just three built with Porsche badging and a 356 engine from the factory, with a Tempo chassis holding it all together. Currently powered by a Boxer 4-cylinder engine and a 4-speed manual transmission, the front-wheel drive Sport Camper is the only known Sport example in the U.S. and one of only two Mikafa campers in the country, lending it a truly rare and unique overtone. Aluminum bodied, it is cosmetically unrestored and retains the original two-tone paint. The Camper’s 4-speed manual transmission puts power to the wheels. Inside, guests enjoy a kitchenette with striped upholstery couches, a stove, sink, Electrolux refrigerator and a folding table. A functional restroom was likely a unique luxury back when it was built, which makes sense, as every Mikafa camper was built to order, nearly bespoke in nature. In fact, Hungarian Count Antal Szapáry von Muraszombath Széchysziget und Szapar, who married Countess Sylvia Anita Gabriel Denise Irene Marie “Syvie” Széchényi, daughter of Gladys Moore Vanderbilt (Countess Széchenyi), purchased a one-of-a-kind Mikafa in 1959. It was exquisitely appointed, as would be expected of a camper purchased by a royal family linked to the Vanderbilts, costing roughly $15,000 when it was new. For comparison, a 300SL Roadster of the same vintage cost about $11,000. For the Mikafa Sport Camper, airflow was paramount, as demonstrated by a host of pop-out and sliding windows coupled with a unique pop-up roof panel and a Dutch door. Nestled within a wooden dashboard, VDO instruments keep the driver informed of vehicle vitals, a simple, white three-spoke steering wheel complete with brodie knob commanding the direction of the camper. Titled as a 1955 Porsche, it rolls on wide whitewall tires and painted steel wheels with chrome hubcaps.
S101 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible E57S106003 $225,000.00 $275,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Extraordinary build quality and precision engineering are the hallmarks of this stunning 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. The body has been extensively massaged with the rear quarter fenders bulged 3.5 inches, flush door handles, custom air vents fitted on the side just forward of the rear wheels, shaved bumpers, and parking lights and turn signals relocated to inside the grille. Finished to a deep sheen in PPG Black with contrasting silver coves, the aggressive forward-raked stance is further highlighted by a custom one-off set of ultra-wide Asanti wheels mounted on low-profile radial tires. The engine is a 7.0L LS7 V-8 equipped with a custom cold air intake and custom-fabricated exhaust headers for 565 HP that is transmitted through a Tremec 6-speed manual gearbox and a Dana 3.73 Positraction rear end. The fully independent front and rear suspension feature carbon fiber transverse leaf springs. The 4-wheel disc brakes feature massive Baer rotors with six-piston calipers. The quality extends to the interior, which consists of Italian leather and German carpet that reflects the same exterior color palette of black and silver and was expertly installed by Ron Mangus. This same theme is carried over to the detailed trunk compartment. Creature comforts include air conditioning, power windows and a hidden Kicker stereo system. Interior details reveal Classic Instrument gauges, a Hurst Shifter and a leather-covered vintage Corvette steering wheel. It is no wonder that the Resto Mod movement has taken off with such intensity in the recent years. Combining vintage styling with modern-day power, safety and comfort, this seductive package delivers the best of both worlds. This custom build was completed in 2018 by Corvette Correction, a highly respected marque specialist from Seguin, Texas, that is universally recognized for its exceptional craftsmanship.

S104 1949 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith DHC WYA26 $500,000.00 $750,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Gooding Pebble ’16 Not sold $950k. Thomas Franklyn Manville Jr., New Rochelle, New York (acquired new in 1947), Elroy O. Wilson, Baltimore, Maryland (acquired from the above in 1953), Judge John C. North II, St. Michaels, Maryland (acquired from the above circa 1965), Noel Thompson, New Vernon, New Jersey (acquired from the above circa 1985), Current Owner (acquired from the above). The Silver Wraith presented here is an extraordinary Rolls-Royce, and it should come as no surprise that its first owner was no ordinary man. Born in 1894, Thomas Franklyn Manville Jr., known to all as Tommy, was the heir to the Johns-Manville industrial fortune and a much-publicized New York socialite. In 1925, the 31-year-old Tommy Manville inherited a fortune of approximately $10 million. The following year, he began construction on a 28-room mansion on the Long Island Sound, between New Rochelle and Mamaroneck. The property, known as Bon Repos, featured a radio and record player in every room, a telephone switchboard in the master bedroom, a movie theater, and watchtowers staffed by armed guards. During his lifetime, Mr. Manville was married 13 times to 11 different women, most of them recruited from Broadway chorus lines. The longest marriage lasted seven years, while the shortest was annulled in less than eight hours. Newspapers began referring to him as “the marrying Manville.” Beyond his penchant for matrimony, Mr. Manville’s off-color remarks, drinking habits, and extraordinary wealth made him something of a celebrity in his day. He was even mentioned in an Irving Berlin song and a Jackie Curtis musical. Unsurprisingly, Tommy Manville was one of Rolls-Royce of America’s most valued customers. His many purchases included a Phantom I York Roadster and Newmarket Convertible Sedan, a Phantom II Henley Roadster and Croydon Victoria, and an Inskip-bodied Phantom III. These Rolls-Royce were all custom-built for Manville at great expense, retained for a brief period, then traded in for the latest model. Manville’s Silver Wraith, chassis WYA26, has a rich and fascinating history tracing back to August 1947, when the chassis was completed at Crewe, England. Specified for US delivery, the chassis was equipped with double filament headlamp bulbs, a separate switch on the instrument board for a central driving light, a “Made in England” nameplate, and the heaviest type springs. Shipped from London to New York aboard the Cunard’s SS Fort Musquarro, WYA26 was collected on September 18, 1947, by J.S. Inskip Inc., the Manhattan Rolls-Royce distributor. As documented by Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club records, Inskip constructed a special four-seat convertible body for Manville’s Silver Wraith, which was to be completed in time for the 1949 New York International Motor Show. The coachwork, executed by Inskip’s team of craftsmen (comprised of many former Brewster employees), was one of the most spectacular bodies ever fashioned for a Silver Wraith chassis. With dramatic flowing lines, brilliant chrome trim, and a sporting cut-down windscreen, Inskip’s Convertible followed in the American tradition of offering the most exciting custom coachwork for Rolls-Royce. Originally finished in black lacquer, the Silver Wraith Convertible did in fact debut at the New York International Motor Show, held at the 69th Regiment Armory in February 1949. The car was delivered to Mr. Manville that April and registered in New York State as “9 TM,” and he was later pictured alongside the Rolls-Royce at Bon Repos. Although WYA26 borrowed design themes from several Inskip Phantom IIIs and another Silver Wraith Convertible built for department store mogul Lawrence Donaldson, Tommy Manville was pleased with the new Rolls-Royce, for which he paid a reported $22,500 – a staggering sum in the late 1940s. By 1952, Mr. Manville decided it was time for a new car and put the Silver Wraith up for sale. That year it was advertised in the New York Times, described as the “most expensive Rolls-Royce convertible ever sold in U.S.A. Superb low-slung custom body finished in black with red leather. Extremely low mileage. One-year guarantee. $12,500.” The Silver Wraith was also exhibited at Herb Shriner’s first International Motor Sports Show, held at Grand Central Palace in Manhattan in March and April 1952. On January 20, 1953, Mr. Manville sold the Inskip Convertible to Elroy Wilson, an undertaker living in Baltimore, Maryland. Mr. Manville and Mr. Wilson reportedly met in the Atlantic City harbor after nearly running their boats into one another. They soon struck up a friendship and arranged to trade cars, with Mr. Manville getting Mr. Wilson’s Bentley Continental in exchange for the Silver Wraith. When collector Judge John North acquired WYA26 from Mr. Wilson in the early 1960s, the car had been painted white and customized by a Baltimore body shop to incorporate Buick chrome wire wheels, Cadillac rear fenders, and a four-foot air horn on each door. Fortunately, the shop kept all the Rolls-Royce’s components, fenders, and trim; Judge North then restored the car, returning it to the original Inskip configuration. The Silver Wraith remained a fixture in the North collection until the 1980s, when it was sold to New Jersey collector Noel Thompson. While in Mr. Thompson’s care, the Rolls-Royce was displayed at some of the most prestigious concours d’elegance and often received major awards. During the consignor’s ownership, the Silver Wraith has received additional restoration work, and it continues to show beautifully, finished in a splendid violet color with tan leather interior. A Silver Wraith with magnificent open Inskip coachwork and a rich, well-documented provenance, WYA26 is an exceptionally rare and desirable postwar Rolls-Royce that possesses every special quality sought after by discerning collectors. Gooding & Company is proud to present this magnificent automobile for public sale as it is surely among the most important and distinctive examples of the legendary Rolls-Royce marque.
S105 2003 Porsche 911/996 GT2 WP0AB29963S696075 $150,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A One of just 233 examples produced in model year 2003, this Metallic Silver Porsche 911 GT2 has only been driven a mere 18,415 original miles. Weighing in at a trim 3,175 pounds—240 less than the Turbo brethren it was based on—weight savings were realized through the deletion of the all-wheel drive system and the rear seating area. An extra 50 HP was infused through the usage of larger twin turbochargers (in this case K24 units that flow 20% more air), larger intercoolers to further densify and cool the incoming air charge and a special low-restriction exhaust system, making for a total output of 456 HP. However, the technical recipe for the GT2 cannot convey its raw-edged nature that requires the utmost of skill and concentration to exploit the limits of this exceedingly fast car. It is a rear-wheel drive sports car devoid of either mechanical intervention from all-wheel drive or electronic intervention from Porsche Stability Management. Therefore, it does not suffer fools gladly, but it does reward those who can harness this visceral machine capable of a 195 MPH top speed. Porsche did not offer a sunroof on the GT2 because its air turbulence negatively affected the car’s terminal velocity. Suspension grip is provided by lowering the car roughly .75-inches, or 20mm, and fitting large contact-patch 18-inch wheels and tires. Equipped with the standard Porsche carbon-ceramic brakes with multi-piston calipers affectionately referred to in Porsche parlance as “Big-Yellows,” the stopping capability is as remarkable as its acceleration capability. This gorgeous 2002 Porsche 911 GT2 is also equipped with sport seats, air conditioning, force-sensitive power rack-and-pinion steering, a black full leather interior and the carbon fiber interior package. It’s an incredibly fast package that is hard to top.
S106 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 30837S109344 $600,000.00 $800,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A An incredible barn find that was in the same ownership from 1965 to 2016, this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette is one of 199 equipped with the legendary RPO Z06 Special Performance Equipment package and one of only 63 produced with the RPO N03 36-gallon fuel tank. It is in sensational condition following an extensive body-off restoration completed in 2017 after being kept in storage for 51 years. The Z06 combined the most powerful Corvette engine, the L84 327/360 HP Rochester fuel-injected small-block V-8, with a mandatory close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission and 3.70 Positraction rear end. Heavy-duty springs and shocks and a larger-diameter front sway bar were included, but it was the Z06’s brake system that truly separated it from other production Corvettes. It featured a vacuum-assisted dual-circuit master cylinder actuating sintered-metallic brake shoes and finned cast-iron drums with five holes in the drum faces; the backing plates incorporated screened openings through which rubber “elephant ear” scoops directed cool air drawn in by internal fans attached to the hubs. The Z06 was the hairiest Corvette ever built, but its success was fleeting as Chevrolet management clamped down on factory-backed racing efforts, halting production at 199 units just as it was proving its mettle on the nation’s race tracks. This extraordinary 1963 Z06 coupe retains its original matching-numbers driveline and includes CCAS/Grenning engine-stamp affirmation. It was displayed in discovery condition in Bloomington Gold’s Legends Row display and at Corvettes at Carlisle in 2016, and then again at Carlisle in 2017 after its restoration was completed. The quality and correctness of the restoration was further recognized by the NCRS in April 2019, when the car was awarded Top Flight at the Maryland Regional meet with an impressive score of 4,499 points out of a possible 4,510. Finished in the factory-correct color combination of Ermine White with a red interior, this rare Z06 is documented with the dealer invoice and deposit check receipt from 1965, as well as a three-ring binder with old photos, maintenance records and other historic documents.
S107 2011 Ferrari 599GTO 176914 $500,000.00 $550,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A In April 2010, Ferrari announced the 599 GTO, a road-going version of the track-only 599XX. Reviving the revered GTO model designation from its rich past, the new GTO delivered staggering performance with its 661 HP V-12 engine, an uprated derivative of the engine that powered the Enzo supercar just a few years earlier. Power-to-weight was similarly impressive, with the 599 GTO weighing almost 100 kilograms (220 pounds) less than a standard 599 GTB, yielding acceleration from rest to 100 km/h (62 MPH) in under 3.3 seconds and a top speed approaching 210 MPH. Comprehensive aerodynamic tweaks and magnetorheological suspension provided grip to match. Production of the 599 GTO was limited to just 599 cars, reserved exclusively for Ferrari’s top customers. Well maintained by its original owner, a noted Southern Californian Ferrari collector and enthusiast, this 2011 599 GTO was ordered to his specification and hand-built at the Maranello, Italy, Ferrari factory in October 2010, and it features stunning Nero paintwork with an Argento Nurburgring roof and factory-applied red nose band. The interior is equally impressive, featuring Daytona-style seats with contrasting red inserts, a red-stitched steering wheel, numerous carbon fiber items and a tachometer with yellow display. In addition to its 661 HP V-12 engine, this 599 GTO is further equipped with the lightning-quick F1 gearbox and carbon-ceramic disc brakes with red calipers, Pirelli P-Zero tires and a heat-insulating windscreen. Driven 7,900 miles since new, service has been duly provided by Ferrari of Newport Beach. Included with the vehicle are books, a battery tender, car cover and Ferrari Classiche certification with the “Red Book” in hand. As Ferrari’s fastest road model when new, capable of besting even the formidable Enzo, the 599 GTO is exceedingly rare, stunning in both visual and visceral terms, and it stands as one of the finest models unleashed from Maranello.
S108 1938 Mercedes-Benz 170VS Gelandesport Alpine Racer 422333 $425,000 $475,000 $330,000 -22% Winner of the Chairman’s Choice award at the 2019 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance as well as the International Journalist Award at 2019 Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, this 1938 Mercedes-Benz Gelandesport 170VS is the only remaining example of 10 specially built by the factory to compete in the 1938 Duetsche Alpenfahrt, an arduous three-day race spanning 38 mountain passes through the Alps and 1,600 kilometers beginning in Munich, Germany, and finishing in Vienna, Austria. The 1920s had been glory years for Mercedes-Benz in international racing, but as the German economy began to falter under the growing weight of postwar reparations and the looming worldwide depression, more localized motorsport events began to proliferate. Interest grew in racing events, requiring competitors to traverse not just a single hill but entire series of mountain passes through the Alps, often spanning several days of competition. By 1930, the factory’s participation in motor racing was on the wane, its attentions turning to an affordable passenger car for everyday German life. Already renowned for their advanced engine designs, Daimler and Benz turned to their Technical Director, Hans Nibel—a master engineer and one of the most important figures in the company’s early history—to design an economical yet refined platform. The result was the revolutionary new 170 range of road vehicles. Conceived as an advanced entrant in the growing medium-size, medium-price market segment, the 170 utilized a lightweight, all-independently suspended chassis first displayed at the 1931 Paris Auto Salon. Its pressed steel box section frame featured a deeply arched rear section allowing for considerable suspension travel, a necessity for navigating Europe’s still-rudimentary mountain passes. Designed with double rear coil springs bracketing swing axles and dual transverse parallel front leaf springs, it was the first all-independent suspension in a passenger car, and was the foundation on which Mercedes-Benz built its reputation for refined handling and ride comfort. Because the basic 170 chassis was also perfectly suited to the increasingly popular Alpine racing marathons of the period, in 1938, the factory produced 10 two-seat open roadster specials, dubbed the Gelandesport (Ground Sport) 170VS, designed for the aforementioned Duetsche Alpenfahrt and other premier Alpine events. Also known as the “Alpine Racer,” the 170VS sported attractive aluminum and magnesium coachwork with low-cut doors, minimalist fenders and a sloping trunk designed to accommodate two spare tires and a tool roll; rope, cable, hooks and pulleys in case of off-road excursions, and wooden wheel chocks. A twin-Solex version of the faithful 1.9L/65 HP inline-4 engine and a ZF 4-speed gearbox were central to the 170VS Alpine Racer’s incredibly reliable performance over the unforgiving Alpine terrain. The first of the 10-car series and the only one left today, Alpine Racer No. 840801 scored many medals during its brief career before disappearing at the onset of war in 1939. In 1950, Dr. William Kitto of New York City was doing humanitarian work in postwar Germany when he discovered the 170VS in storage. The car was authenticated by the serial number on the frame, and Dr. Kitto imported it from Germany to the U.S. He then gave the 170VS to his son to drive while attending medical school. It later developed mechanical troubles and was stored in a friend’s barn for 20 years. In 1971, the car was purchased by Calvin Grosscup. After passing through different owners, 840801 was acquired in 1990 by Rochester, New York, resident Warren Riter, who began the painstaking process of documenting the car in preparation for a full restoration. Riter was already restoring several other significant Mercedes-Benz models, including a 220 CAB A, two 330SL Convertibles, two 300SL Gullwings and a 300 Adenaur. Among his first discoveries was that the car was originally painted black, a rare feature for a German racer of that period (or any other, for that matter). Armed with the documentation he had gathered from around the world, in 1995, Riter completely dismantled the car and began searching for the necessary parts to complete the restoration. In 2018, 840801 was delivered to the renowned Horsepower Motorworks in Victor, New York, which completed the award-winning concours restoration of this unique Mercedes-Benz racer. The car was refinished in the original black, and the interior work was completed with correct leather upholstery and cloth top, correct new gauges replicated by a German company, and a new wiring harness complete with correct cloth wrapping. The first 170VS Alpine Racer built, it contains all of the original stamped body parts, is the only one painted gloss black and is the only known example remaining. The completed 840801 is simply sensational, showing uncanny attention to detail befitting both the Mercedes-Benz automobiles of the period and this car’s inaugural concours award as Chairman’s Choice at the 2019 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.
S109 1971 Maserati Ghibli SS AM115/49*2278 $250,000.00 $300,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A With just a single owner since 1988, this professionally restored 1971 Maserati Ghibli SS is one of only 1,274 examples produced between 1967 and 1973, and one of a mere 425 coupes to leave the Modena factory with the desirable SS trim. The car was purchased from MIE Corporation, the commercial arm of Maserati Club International that offers a curated selection of Maseratis for purchase and an extensive inventory of genuine classic Maserati parts. The Ghibli SS subsequently underwent a restoration at Personalized Automotive Services in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The Ghibli SS made its debut in 1970 with a larger-displacement 4.9L DOHC V-8 rated for 335 HP, the engine’s four twin-throat Weber carburetors, four camshafts, special exhaust and a 5-speed ZF gearbox encouraged running the factory-stroked V-8 up to the redline. Dry-sump oiling set the big V-8 apart from the rest of the Maserati stable. Independent front suspension and a plate-spring Salisbury live rear axle, front and rear stabilizer bars, and optional power steering offer grand-touring road control. A self-locking rear differential assured maximum launch traction, and 4-wheel vented disc brakes with multi-piston calipers were engineered to slow the Ghibli from its 174 MPH top speed with confidence. Fender-mounted side mirrors, gossamer chrome bumpers and signature red paint accent Giorgetto Giugiaro design, and the cabin is outfitted with front sport bucket seats and the vestigial rear bench seat that allowed Maserati to offer the Ghibli as a 2+2. New white leather upholstery flows from the door panels to the center console, and the dash features Veglia gauges. Electric windows, an adjustable steering wheel, factory air conditioning and AM/FM stereo deliver Italian-style comfort and entertainment. The Ghibli SS rides on 15-inch Campagnolo Starburst magnesium alloy wheels.
S110 1937 Cord 812 Supercharged ‘Sportsman’ Convertible Coupe 32226F $275,000 $350,000 $258,500 -6% The new Cord 810’s front-wheel drive was a decided improvement over previous systems, replacing double universal joints with constant-velocity units that enabled independent transverse springing, an industry first. So too were the Lycoming 288 CI V-8 engine and Bendix preselector gearbox. Fitted with a 2-barrel carburetor, aluminum heads, intake and pistons, and rated at 125 HP in naturally aspirated form, the Lycoming V-8’s output leapt to 170 HP with supercharging. With a new “812” designation, the 1937 Cord offered a new optional Schwitzer-Cummins centrifugal supercharger giving up to 6 PSI boost and increasing peak output to upwards of 190 HP and 272 lb-ft of torque, figures that contributed to a series of Bonneville records set by racer Ab Jenkins in 1937, including a 24-hour average speed of 101.72 MPH that stood for 16 years. Chassis No. 32226F, the 1937 Cord 812 offered here is a splendid example of the car selected by the New York Museum of Modern Art in 1949 as one of the 10 outstanding automotive designs of all time. Listed in Ron Irwin’s comprehensive “Master Cord List,” it is a 1937 model built toward the end of 1936, gorgeously finished in Cigarette Cream and fitted with a new red leather interior.

More than possessing perhaps the world’s premier hypercar, owning a Pagani Huayra is an entry into an active and enthusiastic community and events at many superb venues, including an annual gathering hosted by the Pagani family and factory team. It is rare indeed for an example of this incredible automobile—each one bespoke—to be offered for public sale, a fact that underlines the exclusivity of this opportunity.
S112 2015 Porsche 918 Wessaich Spider WP0CA2A14FS800472 $1,600,000.00 $1,800,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A No. 472 of the 918 produced, this 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach represents Stuttgart’s answer to the latest generation of exotic supercars: a brilliantly conceived machine that remains at the leading edge almost 10 years after its October 2010 introduction at the Geneva Auto Show. If the central purpose of the breed is to push boundaries, the hybrid 918 exceeds its mission parameters like never before, and the addition of the $84,000 Weissach Package puts it even further out of the competition’s reach. The plug-in hybrid-drive 918 incorporates not one, not two, but three power sources, comprising two electric motors—one for the front wheels, and one at the rear, totaling 285 HP—and the RS Spyder LMP2-derived 4.6L/608 HP all-aluminum DOHC V-8 feeding Porsche’s PDK 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox integrated with an electro-mechanical limited-slip differential with 3.08 final drive. Packaged in an advanced carbon fiber monocoque featuring computer-controlled double-wishbone front suspension with coil springs and multi-link rear suspension, the 918’s potent drivetrain harvests power for its electric contingent through its carbon ceramic disc brakes, and it can be operated in Electric Only, Hybrid and Race Hybrid modes, each one tailored to specific performance parameters affecting its Active Suspension Management, electric power rack-and-pinion steering and rear-axle steering for astounding control clear through to its 217 MPH top speed. Driven a mere 2,872 miles, Porsche 918 No. 472 is finished to sample in bright Orix Metallic paint accented with Acid Green-painted disc brake calipers behind Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. In addition to carbon fiber removable roof panels, a speed-active rear wing and a black interior with red accents, lightweight bucket seats, a leather-wrapped Sport steering wheel, back-up camera and HomeLink connectivity, this 918 offers the Magnesium 918 Spyder wheels with silver accents and locks, ceramic wheel bearings, lighter brakes and titanium chassis bolts included in the highly exclusive Weissach Package.
S113 1973 Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona 16537 $725,000 $800,000 $715,000 -1% Serial No. 16537, this Classiche-certified 1973 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona has been driven just 11,830 miles since June 1973, when it was delivered new to Chinetti-Garthwaite Imports in Paoli, Pennsylvania. First shown at the Paris Auto Salon in October 1968, the 365 GTB/4 was the most expensive and fastest road car in Ferrari’s then-21-year history. Its basic layout followed that of the 275 GTB/4 it replaced, with unequal-length wishbone suspension and 4-wheel power disc brakes, and its engine was placed well forward in a tube-steel frame and drove a rear-mounted 5-speed manual gearbox integrated with the differential. The engine was the marvelous 4.4L twin-overhead-cam V-12 with six Weber downdraft carburetors, all together rated at 352 HP and 318 lb-ft of torque. Its Pininfarina-penned Scaglietti coachwork, somewhat controversial at the time, has only grown more attractive to the eye and is now considered one of Pininfarina’s most elegant designs. A U.S. version produced with air conditioning, Campagnolo wheels, power windows and a Becker Mexico AM/FM radio, No. 16537 was originally finished in rare Rosso Dino with a black leather interior. In testament to its remarkable overall condition, it won the Platinum Award in 2014 at the Ferrari Club of America Concours d’Elegance, that organization’s highest award denoting virtually faultless authenticity and presentation. In 2017, No. 16537 was once again restored, a process during which it was stripped to bare metal and repainted in the correct Rosso Dino, and it also received a major service and a new exhaust system. In 2019, it received another extensive mechanical refresh that included new rubber bushings, rejetted carburetors and a new starter. One of an estimated five Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytonas known to exist in Rosso Dino, it retains the original interior and is offered with books and tools, a Marcel Massini report and Ferrari Classiche “red book.” It’s a fabulous example of one of Ferrari’s ultimate front-engine V-12 grand tourers.
S114 1935 Auburn 851 Supercharged Coupe 32980M $85,000 $100,000 $101,200 1% The Auburn Automobile Company was founded in 1900 in Auburn, Indiana, but it was not until Cord took over the nearly failing company in 1924 and began to produce and skillfully market some of the most exciting, unique and colorful automobiles in America that Auburn sales surged ahead. This 1935 Auburn 851 is based on a 127-inch wheelbase chassis with a live rear axle, beam front axle and 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The chassis is suspended with Parallel semi-elliptic leaf springs at all four corners. The rear axle is a 2-speed Columbia called a Dual Ratio by Auburn that provides higher speed with less engine RPMs in high range. The 16-inch steel-spoke wheels are painted and are equipped with full chrome wheel covers shod with 6.50-16 white sidewall tires. The 280 CI L-head inline 8-cylinder engine is equipped with a vertically mounted Schweitzer-Cummins centrifugal supercharger that, all together, develops 150 HP. The 5-window coupe body is finished in gloss black, and its sporty design is accented by dual side-mounted spares and deeply arched chrome bumpers cap off the front and rear. Rear-hinged doors add to the modern styling and allow easier entrance into the seat. The vented hood sides display a chrome Supercharged badge on each side, announcing its performance superiority to the public. The interior is finished in soft wide-pleated gray cloth with gray wool carpeting on the floor. This Auburn—Chassis No. 32980M and Engine No. GH3237—has been treated to a comprehensive restoration. It would be a welcome addition to any classic car collection, tour or show.
S115 1934 Lincoln KA Convertible Roadster KA2852 $140,000.00 $160,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Designated a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America, this 1934 Lincoln KA Convertible Roadster is one of only 75 built in 1934. Among the grandest of the prewar Lincolns were the K-Series cars introduced in 1930, powered initially by a modified version of the 60-degree V-8 engine used in the previous L-Series line (why Lincoln went backwards in its alphabetic nomenclature remains a mystery). The K-Series was divided in 1932 into KA and KB lines, the former on a 136-inch wheelbase with V-8 power and the latter with a new V-12 on a 145-inch platform. The KA model adopted a new 382 CI V-12 in 1933 that shared little with the KB’s engine, but, in 1934, Lincoln addressed plummeting finances by limiting engine production to one big V-12: a bored-out 414 CI version of the 1933 Model KA engine—fitted with aluminum heads, a downdraft carburetor, an oil cooler and other refinements—that developed 150 HP at 3,400 RPM. A 3-speed manual transmission with freewheeling, leaf-spring suspension and adjustable-pressure mechanical drum brakes (reportedly the best among its competitors) contributed to the KA’s excellent road manners and performance. An older concours-level restoration performed by a marque specialist, this 1934 KA convertible roadster from the Academy of Art University Collection exhibits all the grandeur and refinement that characterized these treasured prewar Lincolns. Finished in black with red accent striping, red leather interior upholstery and a black manual folding top with red piping, it rides on blackwall tires mounted on red-painted wire wheels with chromed Lincoln-script hubcaps and carries dual side-mount spares in metal cases. A rumble seat, golf club compartment, luggage rack and case, beautiful wood-grain dash and door sill trim, and the famed Gorham Greyhound radiator mascot highlight this evocative Lincoln classic.
S116 1934 Packard 1108 Sport Phaeton Replica 902-213 $350,000.00 $450,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A It was on this refined template that Sakhnoffsky overlaid his own sensational design, leading with Dietrich’s new, taller radiator to his majestic false hood and the sculpted ovoid pontoon fenders that were another of his signature design elements. In contrast to the standard Packard motif, the beads flowing down from the front fenders and around the wheel openings were eliminated, and the running boards were not anchored to the front fenders. From any angle, Sakhnoffsky’s design is the essence of the sporting phaeton: elegant and faintly rakish, elements that are incorporated in this LeBaron-style dual-cowl sport phaeton by Fran Roxas. Finished in beige with red leather upholstery and impressive details that include dual remote spotlights, Pilot Ray driving lights, wind wings and wide whitewalls on chromed wire wheels, this is an outstanding example of one of Packard’s rarest and most glamorous V-12 automobiles.
S117 1934 Packard 1104 Convertible Victoria 767-65 $160,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Another CCCA Full Classic from the Academy of Art University Collection, this 1934 Packard 1104 Super Eight Convertible Victoria has undergone a comprehensive restoration by Winross Restorations of New York. By 1933, the Great Depression had tightened its grip on the world economy, but Packard President and General Manager James Alvan Macauley carried on calmly, confident that a carefully revised line of Packards would boost flagging sales figures that still exceeded those of Packard’s competition combined. The new Eleventh Series was unveiled in August 1933 at the Detroit Masonic Temple, which welcomed almost a thousand Packard dealers, distributors and salesmen, all of whom seemed delighted to find the new cars varied little from the comparatively successful Tenth Series models, which introduced skirted fenders, a new V-shaped front grille, upgraded interior trim and a new instrument cluster. The most dramatically styled lineup in Packard’s history, the 1934 models departed slightly in appearance with new, longer front fenders that extended down to almost meet the front bumper, which was now a one-piece affair tapered to both ends with a horizontal slot to suggest a two-bar bumper. Other exterior revisions included new running boards, a combination left tail light and gas filler cap, hood door handles instead of knobs and an integrated trunk. Beneath the Dietrich-designed factory coachwork of this gorgeous 1934 convertible Victoria, the 142-inch wheelbase chassis carries the quiet-running 385/145 HP inline-8 in front of a 3-speed synchromesh transmission, semi-elliptical leaf spring Ride Control suspension famous for its silky suppleness, and a semi-floating rear axle. Its superb blue paint and beige folding top are tastefully complemented with Trippe Speedlights, dual side-mount spares with case-mounted accessory mirrors, dual horns and the famed Goddess of Speed mascot. The richly appointed interior offers blue leather upholstery, rich wood-grain dash and door sills, Waltham instruments and dual gloveboxes. A contrasting Green undercarriage (a no-cost option) and wide whitewall tires on sparkling chromed wire wheels complete the car’s sensationally stylish presentation.
S118 1930 Packard 740 Sport Phaeton 181777 $125,000.00 $150,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1930 Packard 740 Custom Eight Sport Phaeton from the Academy of Art University Collection has long been a prominent member of the vintage Packard community. Its well-preserved restoration was completed in the early 1960s, after which it laid claim to the Antique Automobile Club of America’s National First Prize Award in 1965. It also earned the Premier Senior Award from the Classic Car Club of America, which long ago proffered Full Classic status on this timeless American automotive treasure. Riding on a 140.5-inch wheelbase, the Packard 740 Custom Eight was powered by Packard’s 385 CI inline 8-cylinder engine, which was upgraded in 1930 with a new Detroit Lubricator No. 51 updraft carburetor and double fan belts. The most significant mechanical upgrade was this car’s 4-speed selective sliding gearbox, which carried an extra low gear. The standard three forward gear ratios were well suited to the new engine’s improved torque, but the so-called “low-low” first gear was added to handle situations requiring extra low-end power when needed. Because of the inline-8’s impressively flexible power band, the feature was not commonly used; in fact, many second or third owners were not even aware of its presence. The Eighth Series’ underpinnings—including the solid axles, leaf springs, friction shock absorbers and vacuum-boosted mechanical drum brakes—were otherwise typical of Packard, which is to say extraordinarily robust. Fitted with the majestic dual-cowl Sport Phaeton coachwork, this wonderful example boasts many desirable period features, including dual side-mount spares, draft deflectors, accessory fender lamps, a radiator stone shield, C.M. Hall cowl lamps, spare-tire-mounted See-Rite mirrors, a rear-mounted storage trunk and the famed DeLuxe Goddess of Speed radiator mascot, the longest-lived mascot in the history of the American automobile. Resplendent in two-tone red and burgundy paint with black interior upholstery, a beige canvas top and wide whitewalls on restored chromed wire wheels, this is a wonderful and truly charismatic automobile.
S119 1930 Packard 745 Convertible Coupe 185550 $175,000 $225,000 $242,000 8% It is easy to understand why many classic car enthusiasts consider the 1930 Seventh Series the pinnacle of classic Packard design. Of the three available models, the 745 is surely the most impressive. The convertible coupe body on this Packard is one of an estimated four produced by Pennsylvania-based Derham Body Company. The Derham Body Company of Rosemont, Pennsylvania, was formed in 1887, and by the 1930s, it had become known for producing very attractive convertible bodies on many classic chassis. This Derham-bodied 1930 Packard 745 Deluxe Eight Convertible Coupe offered from The Academy of Art University Collection is certainly one of the sportiest. This restored CCCA Full Classic was purportedly built for the Yardley of London Perfume family, and it rides on a 145-inch wheelbase chassis equipped with 4-wheel mechanical drum brakes, front and rear semi-elliptic parallel leaf springs and solid front and rear axles. Chrome-plated 19-inch wheels with stainless-steel spokes and 7.00-19 white sidewall tires keep this Packard rolling, and they are accented by the dual side-mounted spares accessorized with chrome tire covers and mirrors. The restored engine compartment houses a 385 CI L-head straight-8 that develops 106 HP at 3,200 RPM. The power is sent to the rear axle by way of a 4-speed manual transmission with a two-plate clutch. The body is finished in burgundy and black with black fenders and splash aprons, complemented by the burgundy leather-trimmed rumble seat and large, folding, bright-trimmed luggage rack that complete the rear appearance theme. The iconic Packard chrome radiator shell is accented by a bright stone shield and a Packard Goddess of Speed mascot. C.M. Hall headlamps and dual steerable Pilot-Ray lamps above the chrome dual-bar bumpers light the way. A black manual folding fabric top completes the image and protects the passengers. The interior is trimmed in burgundy leather with matching burgundy wool Wilton carpet. Derham custom bodies were well-known for their high quality and elegance on chassis such as Duesenberg, Hispano-Suiza, Rolls-Royce and others, but this spectacular Packard 745 convertible coupe is among Derham’s most beautiful and unique designs.
S120 1935 Packard 1207 Convertible Victoria 827212 $225,000.00 $275,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Designated a CCCA Full Classic, this 1935 Packard Model 1207 Convertible Victoria from the Academy of Art University Collection has been driven approximately 400 miles since a restoration completed several years ago. The Packard literature announcing the Twelfth Series V-12s in August 1934 declared, “An appearance more Packard than ever … cunningly blending the undying lines of Packard identity into a design that is pleasingly modern.” This upbeat message obliquely announced a new era of Packard coachwork, namely the end of bespoke coachwork and the exclusivity attendant with custom designs. Dietrich (which would close its doors in August 1935) and LeBaron were then the sole manufacturers of Twelfth Series Packard Twelve bodies, all of which bore the Sakhnoffsky “false hood” and the Dietrich beltline and front-opening doors first seen on the Ninth Series Individual Customs. Flanking new torpedo-style headlight housings, the front fenders swept down to meet beneath the radiator, their rearward reach extending to the center of the front door; meanwhile, the rear fenders reflected the pontoon design of the 1933 Macauley Boattail Speedster. Built on a 132-inch wheelbase, this 1935 Packard Model 1207 Convertible Victoria wears splendid maroon paint with red pinstriping highlighting the beltlines and fender beads, and it is decorated with a black folding soft top, the classic chromed “Swan” mascot, dual side-mount spares in color-matching metal cases, dual rearview mirrors and a rear luggage rack. It rides on BF Goodrich wide whitewall tires mounted on color-matching wire wheels with bright center caps and trim rings, with suspension comprising a front beam axle, semi-floating rear axle, semi-elliptical springs and hydraulic drum brakes with vacuum assist. The Packard 473 CI V-12 engine with Stromberg downdraft carburetor is mated to a 3-speed manual transmission. The superb interior boasts maroon leather upholstery and beautifully finished wood dash and door-sill trim, completing this rare and wonderful Packard that signified the end of the Dietrich-Packard era.
S121 1941 Packard 180 Sport Brougham 14522002 $80,000.00 $100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Offered from the impressive Academy of Art University Collection, this 1941 Packard Super Eight 180 Sport Brougham is designated a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America. One of approximately 99 Super Eight Sport Broughams produced, it was the subject of a comprehensive restoration completed in 2008, and it was subsequently awarded Senior National First Prize honors by the Antique Automobile Club of America in 2010. Packard’s 1941 lineup showed that the company had finally come to the conclusion that style was the key to success in selling automobiles. Chassis revisions were largely in service to accommodating the sleek new coachwork; the suspension was dropped to allow the floors to be lower without the intrusion of a driveshaft tunnel, and while wheelbases were unchanged, overhangs were extended at both ends for the longer 1941 bodies. No longer a separate element, the radiator shell was moved forward and flanked with vertical-bar grilles and headlights integrated into the fenders, the latter featuring a dramatic departure from Packard tradition. Another signature Packard trademark, the large hood side vents were now gone, their function handled by louvers under the front fenders. The familiar Packard spear, now made of stainless steel, completely encircled the beltline on closed models, once again making two-tone paint schemes available. The few significant mechanical revisions included new steel-backed engine bearings, new rubber-cushioned engine mounts, a low-pressure cooling system and an oil-bath air cleaner. The 356 CI L-head inline 8-cylinder engine, 3-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, a live rear axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs and hydraulic drum brakes were all standard equipment. Riding on wide whitewalls with chromed hubcaps and beauty rings, this 1941 Super Eight 180 Sport Brougham’s attractive LeBaron coachwork shows off beautiful Balboa Blue paint, the Swan mascot and fender skirts, with two-tone blue and gray broadcloth upholstery inside highlighted with polished wood trim.
S122 1962 Rolls-Royce Phantom V James Young Sedanca de ville 5BX44 $160,000.00 $225,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A “The coachwork on this magnificent car is recognised as the finest to be found anywhere in the modern world. It is the culmination of a century of superb craftsmanship,” so claimed coachbuilder James Young, and when you inspect this extremely rare Phantom V Sedanca de Ville you’ll surely agree. Yet for all that tradition, the sumptuous Phantom V limousine of 1959 also embraced modernity with the lusty 6230cc V-8 that delighted chauffeurs just as much as the automatic transmission and power steering. As for customers, Rolls-Royce was happy to sell you one if you had the money for the most expensive car in the world, costing three times more than the priciest Cadillac limousine. True, you did get a lot for your money with a 144-inch wheelbase and overall length of 238 inches that gave British coachbuilders the chance to express their flair. The art and exquisite craft of coachbuilders including H.J. Mulliner, Park Ward and James Young appealed not just to heads of state, but to tycoons, heads of industry, rock stars and celebrities. Through 1968, the Phantom V won an impressive 832 customers. Yet, even within this exclusive company, this example is altogether more select as one of just nine with Sedanca de Ville coachwork, all by James Young, its opening roof over the chauffeur’s compartment evoking the golden age of coachbuilding. Further distinguishing this car is the hand-painted faux cane work that complements an interior of utter sumptuousness with exotic veneers, cosseting fabrics and fabulous appointments. For example, there simply is no other car with close to 40 individual handcrafted items of wood trim, not to mention the bar. The roll call of Phantom V owners includes the Queen of England, Shah of Iran, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Elton John and Liberace. Some had more taste than others, yet few possessed as much as a certain Jack Taubman, the man who commissioned this exquisite piece of automobile art.
S123 1938 Talbot Lago T120 Brandone Roadster 92007 $900,000.00 $1,100,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A That formula served as the foundation for this lovely 1938 T120 roadster, a car well known in the Talbot-Lago club since the late 1970s. Having satisfactorily completed his investigation, the owner commissioned a painstaking restoration to the dazzling concours condition it maintains today. Expertly finished in black paint with a low-profile white soft top and stunning red leather and woodwork inside, it is a study in exquisite sculpting and fine detailing. Its extended engine bonnet and lengthened rear section add considerable length to the standard model, enhancing the impression of motion and speed, and finely crafted elements such as the chrome-plated teardrops on the outside of the front fenders typify the Brandone approach to personalized details. The Figoni-patented grille, substituted for the rather mundane original during the restoration on the advice of Benoit Bocquet, adds a dramatic finishing touch to this most unique of Talbot-Lago sport automobiles. via RM Monterey ’09 sold $900k.
S124 1931 Pierce-Arrow Model 43 Club Sedan 1500108 $45,000 $65,000 $66,000 2% Pierce-Arrow produced its Model 43 for one year only, 1931, eventually completing a run of only 2,591 units. The Model 43 Club Sedan offered here from the prestigious Academy of Art University Collection is a multiple-award-winning example that was restored in 1990 to concours condition by White Post Restorations of White Post, Virginia, a renowned leader in the automotive restoration business since 1940. The Model 43 was the product of the luxury automaker’s efforts to increase market share at the outset of the Great Depression. Manufactured on both 134- and 137-inch wheelbases, the Model 43 benefited from the new-generation inline 8-cylinder L-head engine introduced by Pierce-Arrow in 1929. The new engine was a departure from the relatively inefficient powerplants that characterized earlier Pierce-Arrows, displacing 366 CI and employing a 3.5-inch bore and 4.75-inch stroke, a new dual venturi carburetor on a matching duplex manifold, a Delco starter, ignition and generator, and a completely submerged push-type oil pump. Rated at 125 HP, it was not only a full 50 HP more powerful than the inline-6 it replaced, but 100 pounds lighter and, combined with a 4-speed selective sliding gearbox, capable of pushing the new car past 85 MPH. Conventional mechanicals included semi-elliptical leaf-spring suspension and highly effective Bendix duo-servo mechanical drum brakes. Painted in two-tone tan and white with a matching trunk and folding luggage rack and led by the famous “Archer” mascot, this Model 43 Club Sedan also features a plush white leather interior with wood-grain dash and door sills, dual side-mount spares with accessory mirrors, dual wipers and wide whitewalls on painted wire wheels with chromed center caps. Scarcely driven since its restoration, the car earned an AACA Senior Grand National Award in 2002.
S125 1931 Stutz SV-16 Le Baron Convertible Coupe 33081HC $100,000 $125,000 $176,000 41% With its storied past of performance successes, Stutz Motor Company shifted focus to its luxurious Model M passenger cars in the late 1920s, which led to the creation of some truly impressive cars for 1931. This CCCA Full Classic 1931 Stutz SV-16 Cabriolet Coupe never needed to take second place to anyone in the country club parking lot. Stutz saw no need to compete in the multi-cylinder wars of the early 1930s, so it promoted its reliable and powerful straight-8 by describing the number of valves. The SV-16 stood for “Single-Valve,” meaning one intake and one exhaust valve per cylinder, but the SV-16 name sounded far more impressive to the public. This stunning Model MA Cabriolet Coupe—offered from the Academy of Art University Collection and formerly of the well-known S. Ray Miller Collection in Indiana—is lacking nothing when it comes to style, quality and performance. The 322 CI straight-8 OHC engine in the restored engine compartment produces 113 HP at 3,300 RPM and drives the rear wheels through a Warner 4-speed manual transmission. This Stutz is capable of 80 MPH highway cruising and rides on a 134.5-inch wheelbase rolling on wide whitewall tires mounted on chrome steel-spoke wheels. The chassis is equipped with parallel semi-elliptic leaf springs front and rear, and the car stops by way of booster-equipped hydraulic brakes. The desirable LeBaron Cabriolet Coupe open coachwork is finished in light gray with medium gray fenders and splash aprons. Medium gray moldings and red pinstriping bring out the beautiful lines of the body. Dual-bar chrome bumpers, dual chrome horns and dual side-mounted spares with accessory chrome mirrors complete the iconic Classic look, and steerable chrome Pilot-Ray driving lights provide extra safety for night tours. The inviting interior, including the rumble-seat compartment, is finished in smooth gray leather with wood moldings and gray wool carpet. A black Haartz-cloth convertible top completes the picture. This Stutz SV-16 displays Senior badges from the CCCA and the AACA verifying the quality of its superb restoration.
S126 1933 Stutz DV-32 Dual Cowl Phaeton DV261560 $450,000 $550,000 $495,000 Mid Stutz was famous from its beginning in 1911 for its slogan: the “Car That Made Good in a Day,” based on the car’s incredible 11th-place finish in the inaugural Indianapolis 500 race. This demonstration of the endurance, speed and power of the Stutz proudly carried it through another 24 years of production. This 1933 Stutz DV-32 with LeBaron Dual Cowl Phaeton coachwork from The Academy of Art University Collection is the crowning example of Stutz achievement. This Stutz is one of an estimated 200 DV-32s manufactured between 1933 and 1935, and it’s believed to be the only DV-32 Dual Cowl Phaeton remaining. The chassis of this Stutz has a 145-inch wheelbase and is equipped with vacuum-assisted hydraulic drum brakes on solid front and live rear axles with semi-elliptic parallel leaf springs. The DV-32 description identifies it as having four valves per cylinder in its straight-8 DOHC engine. The model name was intended to make it seem as impressive to the public as Cadillac’s 12- and 16-cylinder engines. The 322 CI engine with cast-iron cylinder heads and polished aluminum cam covers developed an impressive 156 HP, which was sent to the rear axle through a 3-speed manual transmission. This Stutz rides on chrome-plated 18-inch steel spoke wheels shod with 7.00-18 white sidewall tires and chrome DV-32 badged center caps, the car’s look completed with dual side-mounted spares with chrome accessory mirrors. The body is finished in red with red fenders and is capped with a tan canvas top. Bright chrome bumpers front and rear accent the unique Stutz radiator shell design with an Egyptian-style “Ra” Sun God radiator cap mascot, and dual chrome horns beneath the chrome headlights sound the way ahead. The interior is resplendent in pleated red leather and red wool carpet, with a wood-grain instrument panel designed by Gordon Buehrig only adding to its appeal. The beautifully designed LeBaron Dual Cowl Phaeton coachwork on this Stutz sets it apart at any show. Formerly part of the Bill Harrah Collection in Las Vegas, this CCCA Full Classic Stutz was treated to an older restoration that still presents very well today, making it the likely star of any classic car tour, show or collection.
S127 1948 Packard Mark IV DHC 637251 $125,000.00 $145,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A It wasn’t until the 1950s that Jaguar adopted the slogan “Grace, Space and Pace” to promote its growing product range, but in many respects, the Coventry company had already laid out this mission statement with the new 6-cylinder sedan of 1938, offered with either a 2.5L or 3.5L overhead-valve engine. The engine was the same that powered the fiercely quick SS100 sports car; that was pace taken care of. The restrained flamboyance of the all-steel coachwork delivered the grace; and there was space aplenty, certainly when compared to many of the rabbit-hutch four seaters that populated British roads. Known simply as the Jaguar 2½ and 3½, production was curtailed by hostilities in 1940, but resumed in 1945, running until 1948 when the plumper MkV was introduced. It’s as a result of this that the earlier postwar 2½ and 3½ models are known retrospectively as the MkIV. This example is one of only 4,420 versions produced with the 3.5L, the 125 HP unit that squirted the prewar SS100 to a heady 104 MPH and could propel the sturdily built MkIV—with its slick 4-speed manual transmission—beyond 90 MPH. This machine—Body No. C1315—is something far more select, as one of only 376 drophead coupes that were built for the 1948 model year. That makes the MkIV drophead coupe nearly as select as the SS100. This CCCA Full Classic is liveried in burgundy and black with a three-position folding top in tan, complemented by leather upholstery of the same hue and burr walnut dash and trim. Whitewall tires on chrome wire wheels with spinners provide a final flourish. Smiths instruments, dual wipers and free-standing headlamps are factory standard; the Jaguar hood mascot is an optional extra. The whole ensemble is completed by the tool set integrated into the decklid, something even the SS100 did not offer.
S128 1957 Ford Custom Phase I D7FG194882 $150,000 $200,000 $165,000 Mid In response to a 1957 NASCAR rule change allowing fuel injection and supercharging, Ford Division General Manager Robert S. McNamara initiated an engine development program, recommending “the installation of the 312 CI 4V carburetor engine of a new design, McCulloch supercharger for use on the Ford car and Thunderbird … which would provide operational characteristics equal to or better than any fuel injection system at present day development. The supercharger option would carry a rating of 300 HP.” Presented by McNamara as the Ford Motor Company Supercharger Program, it mandated the production of 65 Ford Custom two-door sedans, 20 Ford convertibles and 15 Thunderbirds. Sold new at Dan Rohyans Ford in Columbus, Ohio, this Flame Red 1957 Ford Custom two-door sedan is one of only four of those supercharged “Phase 1 Fords” now known to exist. For 21 years, it had been a coveted part of the famed Amos Minter collection, during which time Minter, applying his famously demanding standards, restored it to its present concours condition. It is equipped with a 312/300 HP Thunderbird V-8 engine and Paxton-McCulloch supercharger, which were still intact when the car was purchased from the original owner’s widow. The car underwent an extensive Minter restoration, which included the installation of a correct two-tone Gray LeBaron Bonney interior, weather stripping and window channels, NOS 1957 rubber floor cover, and all-new tinted glass. With just 46 test miles on the car since the restoration was completed, it remains equipped with the factory 3-speed heavy-duty manual transmission, blackwall tires on solid-center painted steel wheels with small-diameter hubcaps, Town and Country signal-seeking radio, safety package, accessory padded dash, seat belts, padded visors and clock delete. Arguably the most unique 1957 Ford in the world, this magnificent factory special is accompanied by documentation that includes the original dealer invoice and payment receipt stub.
S129 1952 Muntz Jet 52M195 $70,000 $80,000 N/R $35,750 -49% The Muntz Jet was named after Earl “Madman” Muntz, but it had its beginnings in the simple but speedy Kurtis Sports Car, a two-seat roadster designed by Frank Kurtis, whose name had become synonymous with building winning race cars. Muntz, himself a successful midget racer in his youth, earned his nickname on the way to building the world’s largest used car dealership with locations in Los Angeles and Glendale, California. A master salesman of tireless energy who also sold his own brand of televisions to retail customers, Muntz saw great potential in the KSC, eventually negotiating the rights to manufacture his own version with a longer wheelbase, seating for four and Cadillac power. The first Muntz Road Jets used aluminum bodywork on a 113-inch wheelbase, but after customer complaints about scant legroom and the aluminum bodies’ vulnerability to denting, Muntz extended the wheelbase to 116 inches and substituted steel bodywork. Muntz soon moved his operation to Chicago and began using 337 CI Lincoln flathead V-8 engines supplied by his friend Benson Ford, CEO of Lincoln-Mercury and brother of Henry Ford II. The veteran showman hired future Indy 500 winner Sam Hanks to introduce the 1951 Jet to the motoring press, including “Road & Track,” who wrote, “The Muntz Jet … offers the fastest acceleration and highest top speed of any American-built car available from the showroom floor today. For those who wish to travel rapidly, carry five passengers, be protected from the weather and who have the necessary change, this is the car.” Not surprisingly, the Muntz Jet’s price tag put it out of reach of all but the well-heeled, attracting such owners as actor Mickey Rooney, broadcast executive Frank Stanton and western movie star “Lash” LaRue. This black 1952 Muntz Jet Convertible is trimmed in contrasting white vinyl and has traveled just 41,775 miles since new.
S130 1984 Ferrari 512BBi 50285 $250,000.00 $300,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer was updated in 1976 as the 512 BB with refinements to the drivetrain with dry-sump lubrication and increased compression ratio, as well as larger rear wheels for better handling of the added power. Its new naming convention gave reference to the engine’s 5.0L displacement and the flat 12-cylinder layout. In 1981, further refinements were made for the last series, the 512 BBi, which included Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a dual-plate clutch for better city driving. This 1984 Ferrari 512 BBi is presented in the original Rosso Corsa exterior and sumptuous tan leather interior with the very desirable Daytona seat pattern. The Boxer’s interior combines a race car’s intimacy with the comfort of a grand-touring machine, including air conditioning and power windows. This is one of only 1,007 Boxers produced in the final series from 1981-84, with the last year being the most refined systems for power and reliability. The powerful, naturally aspirated, 4942cc overhead four-cam flat 12-cylinder inspired by Formula 1 racing develops 335 HP. The Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system provides strong performance and smooth drivability, while reliability is also enhanced by use of a toothed timing belt instead of chains to drive the overhead camshafts. High-performance handling comes by way of front and rear unequal-length A-arm independent suspension, twin rear coil springs, an anti-roll bar, performance shock absorbers, hydraulic disc brakes and factory-correct Cromodora alloy TRX wheels with knock-off hubs. Full instrumentation monitors every aspect of the 512 BBi’s powertrain for the driver, with the iconic gated manual shifter giving direct engagement of the 5-speed transaxle gearbox. All of these combined for exceptional performance in the 512 BBi’s day with a 174 MPH estimated top speed and 0 to 60 MPH time of 5.4 seconds. The 512 BBi Boxer is the first of the midengine supercars from Ferrari and the last hand-built production model by body manufacturer Scaglietti, with its all-steel-tube structure supporting the aluminum hood, doors and engine cover. A recent engine-out service brought maintenance items current, and this Boxer has ventured only 13,482 kilometers since new.
S131 1935 Auburn 851SC Boattail Speedster 33168E $1,200,000 $1,400,000 $742,500 -38% Equipped with Engine No. GH4438, this recently restored 1935 Auburn 851 SC Boattail Speedster benefits from a known history dating back to the 1950s. It combines attractive Harbor Mist Gray paint matched with beautiful tan leather interior upholstery. The Speedster’s streamlined surfaces are accented with tan pinstriping, matching painted wire wheels with chromed trim rings and center caps, chromed Flying Goddess hood and rear deck mascots, and chromed bumpers and stone guards, all conspiring to provide the finishing details on this rare and graceful Auburn.
S132 1947 Delahaye 135MS Figoni & Falaschi Cabriolet 800495 On request On request Not sold Not sold N/A Delahaye 135MS Chassis No. 800495 was one of seven built with an example of the flamboyant and artistic Figoni et Falaschi Narval Cabriolet and was selected to be shown at the 1947 Salon de L’Automobile de Paris. Its first owner was the legendary French singer-songwriter Charles Trenet (1913-2001). The 135MS chassis has a 116-inch wheelbase and uses independent front suspension and a live rear axle with parallel semi-elliptic springs. Its cable-operated Bendix brakes and the 17-inch Rudge center-lock wire-spoke wheels with black sidewall tires were standard. The engine is a 3.6L inline 6-cylinder with overhead valves and three French Solex downdraft carburetors producing 125 HP. Power is connected to the rear axle by a unique Cotal 4-speed transmission with a preselector shift mechanism at the steering column. The construction and operation of the shifter is similar to that of the 1936-37 Cord 810-812. The 135MS is easily capable of 100 MPH speed. The Giuseppe Figoni-designed body is finished in light blue and features unique, chrome, curved side accents on each side of the hood. The chrome-plated front and rear bumpers are designed with artistically curved tubular bars. Full skirts envelope the front and rear wheel openings, creating a smooth aerodynamic styling cue. A dark blue convertible top finishes off the exterior appearance theme. The interior trim of 800495 is finished in blue leather with individual pleated seats accented on the floor with blue Wilton carpet. The rear-hinged doors are trimmed in medium blue leather. The instrument panel is equipped with two large round gauges on either side of the center, including a tachometer, and a row of small rectangular gauges to the right. A dash-mounted clock was included with the instrumentation. The right-hand drive steering wheel is made of a clear, hard plastic with distinctive finger grooves around its perimeter and three chrome-plated banjo-type spokes. A special Charles Trenet La Carriere Antiles plaque is mounted on the dash. This Figoni et Falaschi Narval cabriolet has undergone a meticulous show-quality restoration and has been in the hands of the same owner for 50 years. Its present excellent condition is ready for any concours d’elegance.
S133 1930 Cord L-29 Cabriolet FD4121 $65,000 $80,000 N/R $75,900 Mid With a groundbreaking combination of front-wheel drive, race-proven engineering and distinctive low-slung styling, the 1930-32 Cord L-29 stood between the lower-priced Auburn and the stratospherically priced top-of-the-line Duesenberg. The L-29 is recognized as a Classic by the Classic Car Club of America, and this early production 1930 cabriolet is one of just more than 5,000 built. E.L. Cord hired American motorsport titans Harry Miller and Cornelius Van Ranst to create the L-29, and the pair lent their considerable racing experience and engineering skills to the project. Miller’s front-wheel drive cars dominated Indy 500 racing in the 1920s, and the Miller-derived Offenhauser engine powered racers into the ’80s. The 298/125 HP Lycoming straight 8-cylinder engine, 3-speed transmission, differential and inboard front hydraulic brakes were integrated into a single unit that drove the front wheels, while self-oiling Cardan constant-velocity joints allowed for 42 degrees of steering movement and channeled power to the wheels, in this case, chrome center-mount wire wheels with Cord-logo knock-offs. Rubber-mounted dual elliptical springs and hydraulic Houdaille shock absorbers delivered superb ride and handling, and automatic radiator shutters and a four-blade fan maintained optimal temperature for balanced performance. Front-wheel drive allowed the straight rail X-frame to sit far lower than its competitors, while also eliminating rear-axle kick up. Auburn Chief Designer Al Leamy utilized the low-slung chassis and created a sleek design that defined the Cord L-29 as what many consider, both then and now, to be the most beautiful automobile of its time. Forward-thinking engineering was an advantage and liability for the L-29. While luxury car buyers were reluctant to embrace unfamiliar technology and the 1929 stock market crash occurred just two months after the L-29 made its debut, despite the Great Depression, the L-29 met E.L. Cord’s production target, and with any 1930 Cord L-29 Cabriolet, it’s easy to see why.
S134 1967 Lincoln Continental Limousine 7Y80G800088 On request On request N/R $165,000 N/A When Elvis Presley married Priscilla Beaulieu in May 1967, his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, gave the newlyweds this 1967 Lincoln Continental Executive Limousine by Lehmann-Peterson as a wedding gift, and the celebrity ownership is documented with a copy of the title application listing Elvis Presley as the original owner. Elvis and Priscilla honeymooned in Palm Springs at a modernly styled home not far from Colonel Parker’s own home, yet far enough to allow privacy and downtime from the hectic life and exposure that came with being Elvis. His arrivals, departures and everything in between were events unto themselves, and that wasn’t to be the case during the honeymoon. From the wedding through the early 1970s, this limousine served the family well, carrying Elvis, Priscilla and their only child, Lisa Marie, around town, on trips and to countless engagements. As such, this car has the distinction of having been regarded by “The Memphis Mafia” as the Elvis Presley Family Car; the tales this car could tell, if only it could talk. It seems the majority of the cars once owned, or otherwise kept, by Elvis are accounted for and largely coddled in collections and museums around the world, or at least heavily photographed and documented through pictures. Even a Ford Thunderbird he bought on a whim in the mid-1960s because he liked the wire wheels has been reasonably well documented. But that’s not the case with this 1967 Lincoln Continental Lehmann-Peterson Executive Limousine. It’s been largely forgotten over time, seen only in a rare few photographs and remaining extraordinarily overlooked as a Presley car. Odd that it went so unnoticed, considering it was the first car of the Elvis Presley family, a wedding gift even. (Kudos to Colonel Parker in his selection of a family car for the Presleys.) Few cars could be more fitting, as it’s commonly known that Elvis preferred the likes of Cadillac and Lincoln seemingly above all other makes. An avid car guy, though, he also kept company with brands like Rolls-Royce, Stutz, Mercedes-Benz, DeTomaso and even a BMW 507 while serving in the U.S. Army and stationed in Germany. In fact, the last picture taken of him before he died, literally hours before his death, was of his return to Graceland from a dental appointment driving the infamous black Stutz, the fourth of four Stutz Blackhawks he owned. The first one was actually a prototype, car No. 002; while a number of stories about how Elvis acquired it swirl around, a check for nearly $27,000 is what secured No. 002 for Elvis. The last car Elvis bought was a relatively sedate, white 1977 Lincoln Mark V. Part of the extensive collection of James Petrozzini, the Elvis Presley Family Limousine has been hidden from public eyes for decades. It was equipped with air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power windows, a power antenna, a power front bench seat, an in-dash clock and a host of other luxurious amenities, putting the car well over the top of the typical bar of exclusivity. The mechanical symphony that is the 462 CI V-8 with an automatic transmission powering this limousine was introduced in 1966 and was known in the day as one of the smoothest, quietest engine combinations ever produced, and it also boasted a linear powerband that rivaled all others to boot. It was perfect for motivating the heavy body of a well-built Limousine like the Lehmann-Peterson examples. The history behind Lehmann-Peterson limousines is very interesting in and of itself. The first and second examples of the company’s limousines easily won over the hearts of engineers, designers and top brass at both Ford and Lincoln divisions, largely for two main reasons: one, the passenger area layout, which did away with the old-style jump seats and employed a reverse-seat layout, said to have been inspired by private aircraft seating; and, two, the extraordinary structural rigidity. In testing, Ford-Lincoln tried to break the first prototype, literally jumping the Limousine a couple of times to bend it, buckle it or actually break it. The car wouldn’t budge; it remained as straight as if nothing had happened. The doors operated normally, the chassis remained sound, and the customized interior was unfazed. To say it was impressive was an understatement. Lehmann-Peterson limousines quickly became the posh ride of America’s most elite, thanks to the understated styling of the Continental and the elegantly spacious interiors. Throughout his life, Elvis owned a number of limousines, including a 1960 Lincoln Continental Mark V Limousine that he ordered in 1959 while stationed in Germany. One of the first 1960s off the assembly line, Serial No. 32 was custom bodied by Hess and Eisenhardt with a padded roof, power privacy glass and two separate air conditioning systems for the front and rear. Later, Elvis acquired a 1973 Lincoln Limousine, a car that was said to have been a gift from RCA Records, though, other reports claim that he ordered and bought the car himself. There was also a 1960 Cadillac Limousine with custom features by George Barris, including 24-karat gold accents. Then there was a 1964 Cadillac Limousine and a 1969 Mercedes-Benz 600 Limousine, all bookending the ownership of this 1967 Lehmann-Peterson Lincoln. Elvis owned hundreds of cars over his lifetime and gave away the majority of them. It’s been rumored that in one night, he gave away 30 Lincolns. This car nevertheless stands out as a truly unique and memorable Presley-owned auto. Graceland still maintains a healthy number of original Elvis-owned cars. But the Elvis Presley Family Car has not been available for spectators to view like the well-known examples on display at Graceland. Elvis Presley’s 1967 Lincoln Continental Lehmann-Peterson Executive Limousine has been tucked away for decades, like a hidden treasure awaiting discovery. In fact, few even knew it was part of the Presley fleet, but, thanks to the title application listing Elvis as the owner, it is indeed an easily proven fact. The Elvis Presley Family Car is significant for a number of reasons, not the least of which being that it was a wedding gift from Colonel Parker, was used extensively as the first family car for Elvis and Priscilla, and, perhaps oddly, is the least-known car from Elvis’ extensive roster of rides, long forgotten to the passages of time. But, here it is now, unveiled and ready for its next chapter.
S135 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Barker Sedanca deville 3BU76 $90,000 $125,000 $55,000 -39% Rolls-Royce has long been the preferred motorcoach of kings, titans of industry and maharaja alike, and this 1937 Phantom III Sedanca Deville is an outstanding representative of automotive excellence. Historian Steve Stucky noted that the Sedanca Deville was finished at Barker Coachwork in 1937 and subsequently dispatched on the SS Cathay to Bombay, India, where it was delivered to its first owner, the Maharaja Sir Man Singh Bahadur II of Jaipur. After the Maharaja died in 1970, the car returned to England, where it served Minister for Trade and Author Alan Clark before finding its way to the United States. After years of hiding in the James Petrozzini collection, the storied town car is now offered once more. The Rolls-Royce V-12 engine was developed through extensive testing on land, in the air and at sea. Hydraulic lifters, dual-coil ignition, a balanced rotating assembly and a duplex-type downdraft carburetor helped the powertrain deliver 50 HP. Isolated rubber mounting reduced vibrations, and all gearing, including reverse, was silent type. Independent front suspension made its debut for 1937 and worked with rear road springs, hydraulic dampers and 4-wheel servo-motor brakes for the highest degree of riding comfort and obedient road handling. Barker Coachworks fitted the chassis with a handcrafted Sedanca Deville town car body, a superb choice for long-distance journeys and equally suited for operation by a chauffeur or owner with its convertible front-seat arrangement. The front interior was upholstered in blue leather, and the rear cabin features side-folding occasional seats and luxuriant blue cloth throughout. In 1960, a Mulliner 1937 Phantom III Sedanca Deville played a part alongside Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren in “The Millionairess,” and this historical example awaits another starring role, this time in any classic car collection at the behest of its next owner.
S136 1929 Stutz Model M Le Baron Dual Cowl Phaeton M844VY72E $150,000 $200,000 $101,200 -33% By 1929, the styling of Stutz automobiles had reached a level of sophistication and class that was unsurpassed in the industry. This CCCA Full Classic 1929 Stutz Model M Dual Cowl Phaeton with dramatic LeBaron coachwork is one of the finest examples and exhibits an air of speed and luxury. LeBaron Incorporated, one of the premier custom body works of the Classic Era, was founded by designers Ray Dietrich and Thomas Hibbard in New York City in 1920. Later joined by top stylist Ralph Roberts, LeBaron became known for its work on Duesenberg, Chrysler, Cadillac, Lincoln and other prestigious marques. By 1929, LeBaron had moved to Detroit and were building outstanding designs like this restored Model M Dual Cowl Phaeton. The Model M Stutz is built on a 134.5-inch wheelbase chassis and is powered by a 332/115 HP inline-8 OHC engine with an updraft Zenith carburetor. Power is sent to the rear wheels by a 3-speed manual transmission. The chassis is equipped with 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes and uses front and rear parallel semi-elliptic leaf springs for suspension. Dayton blackwall tires are mounted on orange-painted steel-spoke wheels and chrome center caps all around. Stylish, matching dual side-mounted spares accent the car’s lines. Three-bar chrome bumpers protect the front and rear, and chrome dual cowl lights illuminate the way. The LeBaron body is finished in dark green with black fenders accented with orange moldings. An iconic chrome “Ra” Egyptian Sun God mascot tops off the unique design of the chrome Stutz radiator shell. The interior of the phaeton is trimmed in smooth, tan leather, and the instrument panel is equipped with Stewart Warner instruments. Of course, the spacious rear passenger compartment is equipped with a chrome fold-down rear windshield for comfortable touring. The beautiful LeBaron custom coachwork and the sporty performance of the Stutz chassis make this Dual Cowl Phaeton a great choice for shows, tours and high-quality collections.
S137 1947 Delahaye 135 5424456 $25,000 $50,000 $49,500 Mid This 1947 Delahaye Type 135 cabriolet is a blank canvas, patiently waiting for its next owner to embrace the unfinished masterpiece and transform it into the road-going work of art that it is meant to be. The exceedingly rare right-hand drive cabriolet is one of an estimated 200 Delahaye Type 135 automobiles produced from 1935 to 1950-51 before the model was replaced by the Type 235. Delahaye 135 bodies were handcrafted by several coachbuilders, and this cabriolet bears Chapron signature touches, including lower front fender brightwork and recessed headlights. The restrained Art Deco elegance of Chapron coachbuilt bodies stands in contrast to the baroque flamboyance of the Figoni or the Saoutchik Delahayes. Chapron later crafted convertible bodies onto the Citroen DS, known as the Decapotable, and built lengthened Presidential Citroen DS limousines for Charles de Gaulle that served as international ambassadors of French automotive excellence. The sport-touring Delahaye Type 135 was the antithesis of style without substance. A sleek prewar Type 135MS won at Le Mans in 1938, and a specially prepared Delahaye crested 120 MPH in an international contest of speed the following year at the Brooklands race track. The 217 CI overhead-valve inline 6-cylinder engine produced anywhere from a base 95 HP to 185 HP in high-performance trim. Transverse leaf-spring independent front suspension and a rigid rear axle flanked by semi-elliptical leaf springs delivered competent road control. The engine was backed by the optional 4-speed Cotal preselector electrically operated transmission with a column-mounted, gated gear selector and electromagnetic clutches. Paired with the right engine, the Cotal transmission could propel the Delahaye Type 135 past the 100 MPH mark. This unfinished yet largely intact Delahaye 135 from the James Petrozzini Estate carries a negotiable title and stands ready for its transformation back to its original splendor.
S138 1936 Mongoose Grand Sport 30837N100004 $165,000.00 $185,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport replica was produced by Mongoose Motorsports under license from General Motors, a fact that signifies its authenticity to the original lightweight Corvette racers created by Zora Arkus-Duntov to challenge Carroll Shelby’s racing Cobras. The Grand Sport represents a fascinating chapter in Corvette history. In the face of GM’s corporate racing ban, Arkus-Duntov planned to build 125 lightweight racers for qualified racing customers, but the headlines generated by the first Grand Sports attracted the attention of GM Chairman Frederic Donner, who quickly slammed the lid on the project after only five cars were completed. Now worth millions of dollars each, those original GS racers served as the inspiration for the outstanding Mongoose replica offered here. Completed by its owner to emulate Grand Sport No. 004 as it appeared in the 1964 Sebring 12 Hours driven by Texans Delmo Johnson and Dave Morgan, it’s impressive in every detail. Built on a ladder-style tube-steel chassis with 4-inch main sections and C4 Corvette suspension, the Grand Sport’s snarling countenance is the result of extensive body modifications including aggressive hood ventilation, unique front fender vents and prominent fender flares to cover the wide racing-look Goodyear tires on 15-inch Halibrand knock-off wheels. A shrouded differential oil cooler, rear-mounted Delta boat lights and rear-window Plexiglas vents replicate the originals, as do the decals and number roundels. A Donovan 377/540 HP small-block V-8 with Inglese-tuned Weber side-draft carburetors supplies the power through a Muncie 4-speed, drawing fuel through twin Stewart Warner electric pumps and exhaling through hand-fabricated side exhaust. The dated Harrison radiator, oil cooler, brake booster, tar-top battery, T3 headlights and shifter are all 1963 vintage style. Correct detailing prevails inside the racing-purposed cockpit—which incorporates lightweight fiberglass bucket seats with correct material coverings, seatbelt window lifts, a 200 MPH speedometer, oil temperature gauge, a roll bar with Rupert safety harnesses and an original-model CB radio—completing this sensational Grand Sport replica.
S139 2017 Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 ZHWUY5ZD4HLA06451 $2,000,000.00 $2,750,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Nero Alderbaran over Nero and Red leather. Hand-built in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, and barely touched at just 49 original miles, this 2017 Centenario is one of but a small handful built for delivery to the U.S., and of those, the only example finished in ominous Nero Alderbaran with red trim. It is nearly impossible to gaze upon this extraordinary machine and not imagine a spaceship that would put the Millennium Falcon to shame, its angry visage crouched low over the road as if poised to launch forward into hyperspace. At first glance it defies immediate visual assessment, the effect created by its extreme height-width ratio; the Centenario is 45 inches high and, not counting the mirrors, almost 7 feet wide. Both its monocoque chassis and sharp-edged body panels are rendered in carbon fiber, the styling and detailing signature Lamborghini cranked up to eleven. The exterior surfaces are punctuated with scoops and vents, their placement and angle of attack orchestrated to cut through the air like so many knives; the rear diffuser is as boldly stylized as it is efficient, and the 20-inch forged wheels feature carbon-fiber blades to channel cooling air past the ventilated and cross-drilled carbon-ceramic disc brakes. via Mecum ’18 Not sold $2.85 – 3 mil.
S140 1971 Chevrolet Corvette ZR2 Convertible 194671S117850 $350,000 $450,000 $368,500 Mid Corvette aficionados take note: this Ontario Orange 1971 Stingray convertible is not only one of just 12 Corvettes built that year with the ZR2 Special Purpose LS6 Engine Package, but also one of only two ZR2 convertibles known to exist, and it is in fact the very last of Corvette Chief Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov’s factory-built extra-high-performance specials, a group that includes the original 1963 Z06, the 1969 ZL1 aluminum-block L88 and the ZR1 Special Purpose LT1. As the very last of the so-called Z-cars, it holds an exclusive position as one of the most historically significant cars in General Motors history. More rare than even the vaunted L88, the ZR2 was a one-year-only production package comprising the best high-performance components available from the factory: LS6 454/425 HP engine, aluminum heads, a dual-plate clutch, M22 “Rock-Crusher” 4-speed manual transmission, J56 dual-pin heavy-duty power brakes, F41 heavy-duty suspension with special springs, shock absorbers and front and rear stabilizer bars, and a heavy-duty aluminum radiator without shroud. Power steering, an automatic transmission, radio and air conditioning were not available as options. Documented by its GM Shipping Data Report as exported by GM Overseas Distribution (dealer-code No. 1 in zone 79), this car was built on May 25, 1971, and was shipped to its first owner, an American living in Germany; it was returned to the U.S. in the early 1980s. It has been body-off restored by the Naber Brothers of Houston to immaculate condition, and it was part of the Bloomington Gold Special Collection in 1999, inducted into the Bloomington Gold Corvette Hall of Fame in 2003 and was part of the National Corvette Museum’s Concours d’Performance Exhibit. Most recently, the car earned an NCRS Top Flight award in 2013. In addition to its LS6 454/425 HP engine, it is optioned with aluminum heads, shoulder harnesses, an auxiliary hardtop, 3.55 Positraction differential, A.I.R. smog controls, aluminized exhaust, Soft Ray-tinted glass, Rally wheels and blackwall tires. This historically significant Corvette is also accompanied by documentation that includes the two-page tank sticker and ownership history.
S141 1947 Delahaye 135M Guillore Cabriolet 800388 $1,500,000.00 $2,000,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Chassis No. 800388, this magnificent 1947 Delahaye 135M features a classically beautiful rumble-seat cabriolet body by prestigious French coachbuilder Carrosserie Guilloré that, although built after the war, echoes the grand styling of many prewar Delahayes, many of which were inspired by the great Geo Ham. A consistent winner on the prestigious Concours d’Elegance circuit, its dazzling presentation is a harmonious mix of beautiful Burgundy paint, matching canvas top, boot and spare tire cover, brilliant brightwork and an opulent interior featuring tan leather upholstery with matching fitted Louis Vuitton luggage, artfully finished wood trim and finely tailored carpets and trim. The product of a documented ground-up restoration by the world-renowned Alan Taylor Company, Inc., of Escondido, California, this unique special earned First in Class honors at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, followed by more class wins at the Meadowbrook, Newport Beach and Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegances; it has also taken First Place at the 2004 Houston Keels and Wheels, National First Place awards from both the Classic Car Club of America and the Antique Automobile Club of America, and the Most Elegant Award at the San Marino Concours d’Elegance.

S143 1958 Porsche 356A Super Cabriolet 150396 $180,000.00 $230,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This 1958 Porsche 356A Super Cabriolet is an elusive find, one of just 1,382 built that model year, as cited by Lothar Boschen and Jurgen Barth in “The Porsche Book: A definitive illustrated history.” Moreover, it is one of just a few units fitted across the entire 1958 Porsche 356 model production output fitted with Rudge wheels, a special road wheel mounted to the brake drum on a splined locating receiver and secured with a twin-prong wing nut/knock-off. This was offered as an expensive option on the Porsche 356 and the Mercedes-Benz 300SL. Equipped with the Super engine, this was the highest-output pushrod engine of its generation with 75 HP. The interior features black leather seats, German square-weave carpet, the optional VDM wood-rimmed steering wheel and a Blaupunkt pushbutton radio. Finished in period-correct red with a black cabriolet top, the Rudge wheels are color-keyed to the body and highlighted with chrome-center knock-offs. The 1958 model year featured the Type 2 series of Porsche. By 1958, some subtle yet significant styling changes had been applied to the 356. The tail lights were now teardrop shaped—as opposed to the predecessor twin-beehive style—and the rear illumination light bar was located underneath rather than above the license plate. Mechanical changes included the twin exhaust pipes exiting through the rear bumper guards—rather than beneath the rear bumper—adding greater ground clearance and a less cluttered rear-end appearance. From a mechanical perspective, the steering box was upgraded to a ZF worm-and-roller unit, and the floor pan was locally reinforced to accommodate seat belts. The 1958 Porsche 356A Super Cabriolet is an iconic design conceived by three of the greatest automotive engineers/designers of all time: Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, Ferry Porsche and Erwin Komenda.
S144 1959 Bonneville Streamliner Super Shaker N/A $75,000 $100,000 $49,500 -34% Built and raced by Hot Rodding pioneer Bill Burke of San Gabriel, California, the Harley-Davidson-powered Bonneville Streamliner Super Shaker made its one and only appearance at the Bonneville Speed Trials in August 1959 with Burke at the controls. This was the second time the inventive Burke, long an advocate of “Ford 60” flathead V-8 engines in various states of tune, had made use of a Harley-Davidson V-twin engine for a four-wheeled Bonneville racer. It was an idea many dismissed as futile, but it was not the first time Burke stood convention on its head. The Super Shaker was typical of Burke’s creations: a lightweight, purpose-built, no-frills appliance designed to accomplish its mission of outright speed with maximum efficiency and a touch of flair. The chassis was a ladder-type design with two main longitudinal hoops of 2-inch tubular steel and 1-inch outrigger braces to mount the body and floor pan and support ancillaries such as oil and fuel tanks and a hand-operated tire pump—like those typically used in Midget racing—that was adapted to maintain fuel pressure. Front suspension was standard Ford Anglia with split wishbones, a transverse leaf spring and center-link steering; a Harley-Davidson Servicar rear axle assembly with open differential and mechanical brakes was bolted directly to the frame and chain-driven by a stock Harley-Davidson transmission using only second and top gears. Originally displacing 61 CI, the C.B. Clausen-built Harley-Davidson Knucklehead V-twin engine was bored and stroked and fitted with a modified cam and heads reworked to maximize flow from two specially tuned Riley racing carburetors. Topping it all off was the car’s distinctive yellow livery featuring Burke’s number 888 and “Super Shaker” logo. A shiny little bomb of immense potential, the Super Shaker rode on an 84-inch wheelbase with a 42-inch tread and weighed in at just more than 600 pounds dry, barely large enough to package mechanicals and the lanky Burke, who drove it to 151.38 MPH in the F/Streamliner class at the August 1959 Bonneville Speed Trials. This fascinating piece of work appeared on the covers of the January 1960 issue of “Hot Rod” and “Rod & Custom” in August 1960, in the December 1959 issue of “Car Craft” and in the February 1960 issue of “Sportscar Graphic.” Racing safety pioneer Jim Deist bought the Super Shaker in the late 1960s and later sent it to Burke’s long-time friend Fred Sibley for conversion to jet power, but it sat in Sibley’s shop, first in California and then Elkhart, Indiana, until it was purchased in 2001 by Jim Mann. It passed through two subsequent owners and the beginnings of a restoration before it was sold to Jerry (Weeks) Baker of Indianapolis in 2004. After purchasing the car, Baker agreed to buy the original rear wheels and rear tires from Deist. Baker then commenced a meticulous multi-year restoration that returned the Super Shaker to its present, as-original configuration. It retains the original fiberglass bodywork over the original chassis, the original wheels and Goodyear tires, a Harley Knucklehead V-twin built to the original specifications, and it has been repainted and finished in the original Super Shaker livery, right down to carefully reproduced decals in all the correct places. The Super Shaker’s painstaking restoration was completed just in time for it to open the 2008 Bonneville Nationals, the first car to roll from the starting line, under its creator’s appreciative gaze. In the intervening years, the Super Shaker has even had a place of honor as part of a special exhibit at the Wally Parks NHRA Museum in Pomona, California.
S146 1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Limousine DLW125 $225,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Its war effort over, Rolls-Royce ushered in a new era in 1946 with its first postwar model produced at the company’s new home in Crewe, where it had manufactured Merlin V-12 engines for Spitfires. The Silver Wraith featured a new, much stiffer chassis with independent front suspension, servo-assisted hydromechanical brakes and a revised F-head version of the 4257cc 6-cylinder engine with a cast iron block and aluminum head. Yet, the Silver Wraith was still a purely coachbuilt automobile, and, to be frank, the styling of many British coachbuilders remained stuck in a bygone age of prewar perpendicularity and wing-collared pomp, with separate headlights featured on many designs well into the ‘50s. That cannot be said of this rare 1954 design by James Young, which clearly presages the fashion-forward styling Rolls-Royce would adopt in 1955 for the highly popular factory-bodied Silver Cloud. This Silver Wraith, with the larger and significantly more powerful 4566cc engine introduced in 1951, is a limousine by name, by virtue of its 133-inch wheelbase—10 inches longer than that of the Silver Cloud—which allows for more space, more comfort, the privacy of a glass division and even a cocktail cabinet. Yet, its harmonious proportions, with blended-in fender lines and integral head lamps, belie its size and defy definition. Formal? Certainly not. A touring limousine? Yes, in part, but also with attributes of the classic Royce-Bentley sports saloon. In short, it’s a touring sports limousine. In all the varied body styles on the Silver Wraith you’ll find few with these rare attributes. That this style was unveiled at the 1953 Paris Salon, then the focus of “haute-carture,” speaks volumes. With a price tag that pitched it higher than most other custom-built examples, the James Young LWB Silver Wraith was a very select automobile, with just 28 supplied to discerning clients. Factor in a marque-specialist restoration and an impressive tally of RROC concours awards and this James Young Silver Wraith stands out even among that exclusive set.
S147 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Mulliner Saloon 3BT155 $250,000.00 $350,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A While evolution rather than revolution had long been the custom at Rolls-Royce, that changed with the all-new Phantom III of 1935. And it needed to, for the Derby company had been losing ground as the old 6-cylinder models reached the end of their development path. The Phantom III featured an immensely strong chassis with the company’s first deployment of independent front suspension, along with a prodigious V-12 to reassert its position in the territory it considered its birthright. Henry Royce’s last automotive design was hailed by the British magazine “The Autocar” as “road travel in its most advanced and refined form,” a true challenger to the mighty V-16 Cadillac and V-12 Hispano-Suiza. Rolls-Royce had been producing V-12 aero engines since 1915, most notably with the record-breaking 400 MPH Supermarine S6B that won the 1931 Schneider Trophy and evolved into the Merlin that powered the Spitfire and made the Mustang P51 a master of the skies. Back on earth, the state-of-the art and exceptionally smooth twin-spark-plug 7338cc/165 HP alloy V-12 with hydraulic self-adjusting tappets could serenely propel the 142-inch wheelbase Phantom III to 90 MPH. The 4-speed manual gearbox featured synchromesh on the upper three ratios; brakes were servo-assisted. While some coachbuilders took the Phantom III as a challenge to see how much they could encumber it with performance-sapping bulk and weight, the sports saloon fashioned by the renowned British firm of H.J. Mulliner took a completely different approach. This 1937 Phantom III is graced with the desirable H.J. Mulliner sport saloon body. Significantly lighter than many, it exploited the Phantom III’s potential rather than stifling it. Yet, the sporting Mulliner still delivered limousine accommodation and amenities such as a wind-down glass division. Crisply styled, the two-tone livery of this award-winning automobile is set off with whitewall tires, twin side-mounts and horns. Part of the same collection since 1991, this majestic motorcar is a National AACA and CCCA First Prize winner.
S148 1969 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI Limousine PRH4573 $325,000.00 $400,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A In 1969, the new Rolls-Royce Phantom VI limousine was quite simply the most expensive car in the world, considerably more costly even than the Mercedes-Benz 600 limousine. But if you wanted one, you had to be patient, as the painstaking work of handcrafting each Phantom VI to order routinely took skilled coachbuilders and trimmers 18 months. It was a mammoth undertaking; the Phantom VI boasted a wheelbase of 145 inches and overall length of 238 inches, and as the last Rolls-Royce built on a separate chassis, it represented a final flowering of traditional coachbuilding. Although based on the preceding Phantom V, the VI is considerably rarer, with just 374 chassis produced through 1990 as opposed to 832 for the Phantom V. The VI is also a particularly rare sight in the U.S., as it was never officially available here. At the heart of the Phantom VI was the 6230cc aluminium V-8 that gave the leviathan a 101 MPH top speed. This car, however, is fitted with the larger 6750cc V-8 adopted from 1978 on that raised top speed to 112 MPH. In fact, there’s much in the detail that distinguishes this Mulliner-Park Ward crafted limousine. The Phantom VI commonly had front-hinged rear doors, but on this example, they’re rear hinged, meaning the chauffeur didn’t have to walk as far to open them. Also make note of the unusual faux landau irons and distinctive fabric roof covering complemented by faux wicker work along the waistline. The livery tips a wink to its acquisition in 1994 by Mohamed Fayed—the former owner of London department store Harrod’s, with its famous green and gold branding. The theme carries over to the lavish custom interior created for Fayed by marque specialists SC Gordon Ltd. Conveniences include a TV, air-conditioning, three telephones, a wine cooler, cocktail cabinet and a fax machine, which serves today as a conversation starter. Specified far beyond its original build and restored to exacting standards, there is simply no Phantom VI quite like this.
S149 1962 Chevrolet Corvette 20867S104942 $200,000.00 $250,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A When young Californian Tom Mazzola purchased this 1962 Chevrolet Corvette from a local dealership in 1966, he had no idea of its true nature as one of the hottest Corvettes to leave the assembly line in 1962. However, it didn’t take long for the 29-year-old SCCA racer to discover that it was, in the parlance of the day, a “Sebring” car, one endowed at the factory with a cohesive assemblage of race-proven components developed by Corvette Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov during years of testing in competition. Offered since 1957 under various names and configurations, the optional Heavy Duty Brakes and Special Steering package included special shock absorbers, finned brake drums, internal cooling fans fed by air scoops and deflectors on the front brakes and air scoops on the rear, metallic linings, and a quick-steering adaptor. One of only 246 equipped with the “Big Brake” option in 1962, Mazzola’s Corvette features the Rochester fuel-injected version of the new 327 CI small-block V-8 with the requisite 4-speed manual transmission and Positraction rear end. With the combination of fuel injection, 11.25:1 compression and the solid-lifter “Duntov” cam, the 327’s extra displacement raised peak output from 1961’s 315 HP at 6,000 RPM to an exhilarating 360 HP. The car also features the extremely rare 24-gallon fuel tank, necessitating the auxiliary hardtop in place of the standard soft top because of the tank’s intrusion into the storage area. When fellow racer Gene Layne purchased the Corvette from Mazzola in 1976, he commenced a careful restoration, emulating the original paint scheme of Roman Red with black scallops in quality Ditzler paint after stripping the car down to the original fiberglass. Presented exactly as Mazzola raced it, this prominent SoCal Big Brake Fuelie Tanker was featured on the cover of “Vette Magazine.”
S150 1982 Porsche 935 DP35 WP0ZZZ93ZCS000212 On request On request Not sold Not sold N/A This 1982 Porsche DP 935 was commissioned by a Porsche engineer for the “Car and Driver” magazine test and article by Csaba Csere in the publication’s 1984 Buyer Guide entitled “DP 935 Fantasies Fulfilled: No Waiting.” Further documentation is provided by a confirmation letter from DP Motorsport attesting to the specifics of the build. The popularity of the 911 spawned a select cadre of high-end customization shops specializing in the Porsche brand, including Gemballa, Strosek, Buchmann & Buchmann and, most notably, DP Motorsport. DP Motorsport creations were far and away different from the competition. While the others offered body and interior enhancement upgrades that were essentially just appearance modifications, DP Motorsport cars were decidedly performance focused. Ekkehard Zimmermann—the creative force behind DP—had a well-earned reputation for designing and supplying body panels to the top professional teams in the German motorsports market. His association with the Kremer Brothers and their Le Mans-winning 935 K3 would prove to be his capstone achievement, and customers were clamoring for a street-legal Porsche 935 such as this Guards Red example. Clothed in composite body panels built from the same molds as the race car, the engine was sent to RUF in Pfaffenhausen, Germany, for horsepower engineering. Alois Ruf—world renowned for his precision engineering on Porsche automobiles—upgraded the engine through an increase in displacement to 3.4L and the installation of a more potent turbo system. Conservatively rated at 390 HP, the car is capable of a 183.3 MPH top speed. The suspension has been enhanced to a level commensurate with the horsepower increase and the car’s high-speed capability through the addition of Bilstein shocks, H&R springs and wide-contact-patch wheels and tires. This DP 935 wants for nothing, seamlessly delivering speed and handling wrapped in the seductive shape of a 1979 Le Mans-winning race car.
S151 1989 Porsche 935 DP35 DP93557989 On request On request Not sold Not sold N/A One of only four examples built in the “Long Windshield” configuration, this 1989 Porsche DP 935 shows only 23,662 kilometers or 14,778 miles. The genesis of this street-legal Porsche is rooted in the legendary 935 race car—a winning purpose-built competition car that dominated FIA Group 5 racing in Europe and IMSA GTP racing stateside. The late 1980s is often characterized by the mantra “greed is good,” where too much is not enough. Such is the case with this 1989 Porsche DP 935—a creation of excess and indulgence that pushed the boundaries of automotive convention and culture back in its era. The 935 body panels of carbon Kevlar construction are of the same design used on the Le Mans-winning 935 K3. The twin-turbocharged 3.3L horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine produces 450 HP when mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, enabling a 183.3 MPH top speed and a 4.2-second 0-60 MPH acceleration time; this was stratospheric performance for the time period, and it remains a high watermark of speed to this day, despite the fact 30 years have transpired since. The outrageous bodywork is further enhanced by the long windshield, designed to achieve the optimal intersection point of low wind resistance combined with aerodynamic downforce. Finished in iconic Guards Red with multicolor striping, this DP 935 features BBS three-piece racing wheels with “turbo-fan” covers completing the competition inspired presentation. The black interior is fitted with competition Lollipop bucket seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and the dashboard-mounted “dial of death”—a knurled knob enabling on-demand boost control of the turbochargers. The suspension employs Bilstein shocks with H&R springs and sway bars, with stopping power provided by a 4-piston brake system sourced from the legendary 930 Turbo.
S152 1992 Porsche 935 DP35 WP0ZZZ96ZMS470942 On request On request Not sold Not sold N/A A one-off build, this 1992 Porsche DP 935 was commissioned by its previous owner to look like the German motorsports VLN series championship-winning car piloted by Jurgen Alzen. The iconic images of the Porsche 935 blasting through the demanding 12.9-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit, the sole racing venue of the VLN series, was the impetus to create a street-legal version of this lethal race car. Built to custom order by DP Motorsport—the legendary body design and fabrication constructor that came into world prominence in the late-1970s through its collaboration with the Kremer Brothers to create the legendary Porsche 935 K3 that won first overall at the 1979 24 Hours of Le Mans—this Porsche is the result of a no-expense-spared build performed in 1998. Starting with a 964 generation 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo, DP Motorsport added a carbon fiber reinforced body consisting of a slant-nose front end with air intakes, relocated headlights, flared fenders, racing rocker panels, a massive rear wing and aerodynamic racing mirrors with the only remaining section of the initial car being the steel roof section and glass. The drivetrain was upgraded with a larger K-27S turbocharger, larger intercooler and special exhaust system, boosting the output from 300 to 444 HP. Keeping the car planted required the fitment of wider three-piece Cup-inspired aluminum alloy wheels, 18×12.5-inch rear and 18×8-inch front-mounted wheels, with 335/30-18 and 245/40-18 tires. The car features an H&R Sports adjustable suspension with Uniball strut bearings and an adjustable strut brace. Reportedly, this car is the last air-cooled DP 935 built. Finished in classic Polar Silver with tri-tone striping and signature graphics, this Porsche DP 935 is one fantastic sight to behold and is the last air-cooled example produced.
S153 1985 Porsche 935 DP35 WP0ZZZ93ZFS000558 On request On request Not sold Not sold N/A Reportedly built for racing legend Mario Andretti, this outrageous 1985 Porsche 935 is the creation of two highly respected icons of Porsche racing history: the Kremer Brothers and DP Motorsports. The Kremer Brothers—Manfred and Erwin—were German performance tuners of competition Porsches back in the 1970s and ‘80s who earned a first overall victory at LeMans in 1979 with their 935-based K3. Ekkehard Zimmermann operated DP Motorsports—Designer Plastics Automobilbau—which made lightweight composite body panels used by the Kremer Brothers on their highly successful K3 935. This car started life as a Porsche 930 Turbo and was first sent to the Kremer Brothers for performance upgrades and then to DP for fitment of lightweight body panels consisting of a slant nose front end with lower oil-cooler scoop, brake scoops, horizontal-shaped driving lights, shaved front fenders with air extraction vents and retractable headlights. Further adjustments were made resulting in extensively widened rear fenders with intercooler air inlets clad with horizontal strakes, flush-fitting side mirrors, extended rocker-panel sills, resculpted lower rear valence and a large rear tray spoiler. The contact patch was also increased to harness the 500 HP emanating from the Kremer engine with ultra-wide BBS modular wheels mounted on low aspect-ratio tires. Upon completion, this car was imported into the U.S. in March 1985. These bespoke DP-Kremer Porsches were held in high regard, and former owners of these special 935-inspired street cars include Mario Andretti, Roger Penske and Pete Rose. This car shows beautifully in its dark-blue exterior with contrasting gold DP graphics and an Andretti windshield decal. The tan leather interior features air conditioning, a leather-stitched roll bar and an adjustable boost knob on the center console. A DP Motorsports tag in the door jamb states built for Mario Andretti.
S154 1989 Porsche 911 Speedster WP0EB0910KS173214 $160,000.00 $180,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This highly collectible 1989 Porsche Speedster is a limited production, one-year-only model and one of only 823 units imported into the United States. Formerly owned by Slash of Guns N’ Roses fame, the car has clocked a mere 27,215 original miles. The spiritual successor to the iconic 356 ancestor of the same name, this classic Speedster presents in monochromatic black on the exterior, interior, hard tonneau cover and cloth convertible top, a color which is contrasted with a set of chromed Fuchs wheels. The 1989 Speedster is based on the G-Series Porsche 911 platform produced from 1974-1989, and many knowledgeable enthusiasts consider it a pinnacle model year based on its high build quality, reliability and performance. When Porsche first announced the 1989 Speedster, the cars became instantly collectible and were fetching a healthy premium over their MSRP with the demand far exceeding the supply. The Speedster was recognizable at a quick glance by its steeply raked and low-slung windshield and the solid hump-style tonneau cover. Although it could be ordered with a narrow body, the majority of Speedsters came as wide-body models with front and rear fender flares sourced from their sister Porsche 930 Turbo. Likewise, the extra-wide Fuchs alloy wheels also came from the 930 Turbo. Contrary to the original 356 Porsche Speedsters, which were minimalist cars that offered little in terms of creature comforts, the 1989 Speedster comes well equipped with air conditioning, power windows, power seats, power locks and a premium audio system. The 3.2L SOHC horizontally opposed flat-6 engine combined with its 5-speed transmission, independent front and rear suspension, and 4-wheel disc brakes make for exceptional acceleration, handling and braking capability. This Speedster is additionally optioned with a limited-slip differential and sport seats. It’s a unique ride that will remain sought after for years to come.
S156 1963 Shelby Cobra 289 Dragonsnake CSX2093 $750,000.00 $1,000,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Surprisingly, however, the winningest competition Cobra in history is not a road-racer. CSX2093 was independently modified for drag racing and eventually won seven NHRA national events by storming the quarter-mile with 11-second ETs, establishing numerous NHRA and track records along the way. CSX2093’s legendary history is documented by a full-page narrative in the official Shelby Registry. CSX2093 was originally built in early 1963 as a red street 289 Cobra and sold at White-Griffith Motors in Hicksville, New York. By 1964, it was for sale as a 5,000-mile preowned car in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, where Jim Costilow purchased the two-seater for hill climbs and road racing. However, Costilow’s decision to compete in a drag race at York’s U.S. 30 Drag-O-Way forever changed the Cobra’s history. For preparation, Costilow enlisted local drag racer Bruce Larson. Within a year, CSX2093 had been converted into a full-on competition drag car using parts from the “Cobra Acceleration Package,” as developed by Shelby American shop employees for their “Dragonsnake” 289 Cobra drag car. With Larson driving and the hardtop-equipped body painted in eye-catching Fuchsia metal flake, CSX2093 competed around the country in 1965. Campaigning in several classes, including A/SP with a single 4-barrel and AA/SP with Webers, Larson drove the Cobra to numerous track and national records, along with championship victories at the 1965 Springnationals in Bristol, Tennessee, and the prestigious Winternationals in Pomona, California. The Costilow/Larson Cobra was so successful that it overshadowed Shelby American’s own Dragonsnake Cobra, which resulted in reduced Shelby support. In 1966, Costilow sold CSX2093 to Ed Hedrick, who continued the Dragonsnake Cobra’s winning ways in the same bold color. Competing in the NHRA’s Northeast division, Hedrick set records in several sports classes and won the B/SP class at every NHRA national event entered in 1966 and 1967, finishing out the 1967 season with the World Points Championship. By the time Hedrick sold the Cobra in 1968, it had racked up seven NHRA national titles in four different classes since 1965. Over the past five decades, CSX2093 has been in the possession of several owners, among them, former driver Bruce Larson. The competition Cobra has received a show-quality and accurate restoration by Ziegler Coach of Los Angeles, and it’s now presented exactly as campaigned by Costilow and Larson in the 1960s with the Weber-carbureted 289 small-block V-8, Ballanger side-exiting headers, 4-speed transmission, Cobra Sunburst rear wheels with M&H Racemaster slicks, wire front wheels, removable hardtop and Fuchsia metal flake paint. Authenticated and certified by the Antique Automobile Club of America as a true and correct original car, the Costilow/Larson Dragonsnake has also earned the AACA’s Senior Award and Race Car Certification badges. As CSX2093 is a very early production car and CSX plates were not implemented until approximately CSX2170, a CSX plate on top of the passenger footbox was never installed at the factory. Of all the Shelby Cobras to compete in sanctioned competitive racing, CSX2093 established the undisputed best winning record, one that even exceeds the legendary victories by road racing Cobras.
S158 1963 Modena GT Spider California GTC00001 $300,000.00 $400,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A In 1986, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” rocked theaters around the world. Prior to the movie, director John Hughes read a magazine article featuring the Modena GT California. He called Mark Goyette and Neil Glassmoyer—the founders of Modena Design in El Cajon, California—who were given four weeks to build three cars for the film. This is one of the screen-driven “Hero Cars” from the film, and it recently emerged from a body-off restoration by Glassmoyer. With a chassis designed by Bob Webb, a chassis engineer for Roger Penske, the Modena GT Spyder has a 50/50 weight distribution, allowing the car to make the most of the 427 CI stroker V-8 engine under the hood. Fed by a 750 CFM Demon 4-barrel carburetor atop an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold, the engine uses aluminum heads and has been dyno tested to produce 564 HP. Equipped with a TKO 500 5-speed manual transmission, carbon clutch with internal hydraulic release, and Helical drive limited-slip differential, the 2,292-pound car will bolt from 0-60 MPH in just 3.3 seconds. The chassis benefits from one-off QA1 adjustable 16-position aluminum coilover shocks, 4-wheel independent suspension and Wilwood 6-piston, variable-diameter, aluminum caliper, front disc brakes with 4-piston caliper rear disc brakes all clamping down on 12.19-inch vented, slotted and cross-drilled rotors. During the restoration, carbon fiber inner tubs upgraded the body, reducing weight and adding a unique detailed look. Rolling on 16-inch custom-made chrome wire wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich Comp II tires, the Modena is highly detailed with features such as driving lights, twin fender-top bullet-shaped sideview mirrors, a GPS speedometer and a Retrosound vintage-look radio with Bluetooth channeling through two 1,500 Blaupunkt amplifiers in the trunk and 14 hidden speakers. The succulent interior and top boot are swathed with seven hides of rich leather. The dashboard is an exquisite looking piece with detailed stitching and wonderful chrome-ensconced gauges stretching halfway from left to right. Having traveled only 552 miles since the restoration, it will be sold with movie memorabilia including photos, signed build photos, a 1/24-scale diecast model, a Hot Wheels car and the original Smiths instruments.
S160 1928 Packard Phaeton 229233 $50,000 $70,000 $52,250 Mid At one point in time, Packard held 40% of the luxury car market sales, an astonishingly high number considering the amount of competition available in those days. This 1928 Packard Phaeton is a bold example of why the company earned such respect and status in the marketplace. Powered by an inline 8-cylinder engine fed by a downdraft carburetor and backed by a 3-speed manual transmission, the car rides on a semi-floating rear axle and semi-elliptic leaf springs front and rear. Mechanical drum brakes bring the Phaeton to a halt in reasonable order, an example of sound brake engineering, something that Packard was well known for. Then again, Packard engineering was well renowned in all regards, largely helping the company earn its spot as No. 1 in the luxury car market. Painted in a two-tone red and black motif with light yellow steel disc wheels, the car features a number of fabulous details such as the ubiquitous Goddess of Speed mascot, radiator stone shield, Boyce Motometer, Pilot Ray driving lights mounted to the front bumper that pivot to follow the wheels when turned, dual side-mount spare tires with accessory mirrors, running-board step plates, a rear luggage rack carrying a tan-colored trunk that matches the convertible top, and much more; the entire visual is stunningly impressive and slightly imposing. The interior is upholstered with red leather and trimmed with wood-grain appointments. Of course, the Phaeton body was one of the flagship designs of the day, indicating one of the most expensive, coachbuilt cars of the era. Long and grand, the open-top tourer was one of the most desirable luxury cars, and it remains hugely impressive today. A great opportunity to acquire a rare and majestic American classic, this Phaeton exemplifies the Packard ad campaign of being the “Boss of the Road.”
S161 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 CSX2445 $550,000 $700,000 $412,500 -25% The legacy of performance instilled by Carroll Shelby’s Cobras has never been questioned. Immediately identifiable by both its body form and fearsome reputation, these competition-level creations have had a serious following since their introduction. CSX2445 is one of them. Arriving via the SS Loch Loyal in Los Angeles on June 6, 1964, for delivery to Shelby’s construction headquarters, this car was initially sold to Broadway Motors in the Kansas City area in early 1965, arriving there via Shelby’s transporter. Built with the A-class accessory combination, the retail price was a stout $6,269.51. Like most, the Shelby Cobra’s initial handful of owners during its earliest years were careful to note the vehicle’s mechanical and cosmetic needs, and, as has been documented by the SAAC, occasional returns to the dealership allowed this car to receive excellent maintenance even while the car was still under Shelby’s warranty. Following the misfortune of a 1969 highway incident, the car was later returned to roadworthy status by Pat Crowley of Redondo Beach, California, for then-owner Larry Kay. This included the conversion of the color combination to its current red with black interior. Following that restoration effort, the car sold to Jerry Tarble of Illinois, who did a handful of performance upgrades, including adding a set of rare Weber carbs to the desirable model. Today, CSX2445 is powered by the 289 Ford V-8 engine and sports the Cobra-themed engine dress-up parts and 4-speed manual transmission. The paint refreshing, though done 20 years ago, is also part of its appeal, while the interior still has the sort of serious functionality that Carroll Shelby would have actually insisted upon, including a wood-rimmed steering wheel and Stewart Warner instruments. Riding on Halibrand knock-off wheels and Michelin tires, this 289 Shelby Cobra showcases the reasons why these cars remain undisputed champions of the hobby.
S162 1929 Packard 633 Sport Phaeton 246955 $100,000 $125,000 $88,000 -12% Sold new to F.W. Nicolson, president of the Pullman Railroad Company of New York City, this 1929 Packard 633 Eight Sport Phaeton soon changed hands when it was sold later that year to the present owner’s father. This is a remarkable example of the elegant Sport Phaeton and retains most of its original paint and interior, both of which have acquired a lovely patina over the course of the car’s 90-year history. The year 1929 was an important time for Packard, which introduced its new Standard Eight model line to replace the standard-bearing Six. The successor was announced in a rather implicit manner in a single advertisement posted on September 15, 1928, that simply declared, “With the presentation of the new Standard Eight with cylinders in line, Packard offers the consummation of thirty years of skilled artisanship. Lithe, graceful as a seabird and with the potential strength of an ocean liner, it is a fitting companion for the Packard Custom Eight—which has so firmly established itself in the fine car field.” The new cars were intentionally modeled to closely resemble the Six, but details such as a revised radiator shell, new headlights and some chrome exterior plating distinguished the new from the old. The Standard Eight used a new 320 CI inline-8 engine rated at 90 HP, a 4-speed synchromesh transmission, lower-rate semi-elliptical springs with a new “loose trunnion” left front mount accidentally discovered to eliminate shimmy, and larger mechanical drum brakes. Offered with a known history since new, this 1929 Sport Phaeton has obviously been well cared for. The engine was rebuilt in 2009, and the clutch, brakes and tires were replaced in 2011. Still decorated in mostly original blue paint with black fenders and white accents, it is generously outfitted with wood-spoke wheels and whitewall tires, dual side-mount spares, dual spotlights and cowl lamps, draft deflectors, a radiator stone shield, covered trunk and the famed Goddess of Speed mascot.
S164 1951 Jaguar XK120 671751 $240,000.00 $280,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This is a car that offers the intriguing prospect of answering one of the what-ifs of motoring racing history. A C-type Jaguar won the 1951 Le Mans 24-Hour race—that’s a matter of record—but what if the C-types had not been ready in time? That’s what Jaguar boss William Lyons feared, and, as insurance, he prepared a trio of alloy-bodied XK120s for the race. In the event LT1, LT2 and LT3, as they were registered, didn’t race, the C-types were ready for their date with destiny. LT2 and LT3 were exported to the U.S., where Phil Hill claimed a class win and third overall the first time out in August 1951. LT1 also eventually went to North America and raced extensively; today it resides in a private collection. As for this car, its chassis number identifies it as a 1951 left-hand drive export model that was originally dispatched to U.S. importer Charles Hornburg, the very man who had brought over the two LT cars months before. Perhaps that coincidence prompted its 1989 return to the UK and its lengthy restoration into a faithful recreation of the LT Le Mans cars by leading UK specialists. Original parts were sourced over 15 years; Aubrey Finburgh faithfully recreated the one-piece alloy body, which was mounted on a tubular-steel birdcage frame, and it was fitted with a C-type-specification engine featuring sand-cast SU carburetors. The lengthy process, which included conversion to right-hand drive—as per the LT cars—included an overhaul of the running gear, rewiring, rebuilding the original instruments and refurbishment and refinishing by XK concours-winning restorer Steve Grimsley of Phoenix Car Restoration. Since completion in 2011, this labor of love and passion has covered approximately 284 miles and now offers a new owner the opportunity to explore the potential of the LT Le Mans Jaguars.
S165 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 CSX3016 $800,000.00 $1,200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A After Cobra racer Tom Payne injured himself in a garage accident, his friend, Ferrari driver Bob Grossman, offered to drive Payne’s Cobra at the 1965 Nassau Trophy Races and wound up winning his class. Upon returning home Grossman immediately sold his Ferrari 250LM and ordered a Cobra from Shelby, one of a total of 343 427 Cobras eventually built. CSX3016 was shipped to Grossman’s Foreign Car City in West Nyack, New York, on February 28, 1966. Grossman entered the car as No. 6 in the 12 Hours of Sebring, painted Silver Mink with red, white and blue stripes, Halibrand wheels, a black roll bar and black side exhaust. With Grossman and Ed Lowther sharing driving duties, the car finished 10th overall and first in class for Production Sports Cars over 5.0 liters. During the remainder of 1966, Grossman raced the car at such Northeast tracks as Cumberland, Maryland; Bridgehampton, New York; Danville, Virginia; and Lime Rock, Connecticut. The car set a new lap record at Watkins Glen, New York, where it crashed in the rain and retired. It passed through different owners over several years, at one point even being temporarily mistitled as 3106 before corrected, and it was eventually purchased by collector and Cobra expert Lynn Park, who hired Cobra expert Mike McCluskey of Torrance, California, to restore it at a cost of almost $22,000. Finished in Bright Blue with white stripes, a black roll bar and white side exhaust, it competed in vintage racing from 1995 and 2002 before sold to Anthony Boosalis of La Canada, California, in 2005. More recently, CSX3016 was purchased by a private collector, who commissioned respected H.R.E. Motorcars, Inc., of Freeport, New York, to perform a major inspection and to prepare it for the Greenwich Concours. It was subsequently returned to H.R.E. for the next phase of the proposed work. This included dismantling the exterior and interior and parts of the chassis and engine bay, and repairing and refinishing the body in its original colors. H.R.E. then assembled the car with refurbished parts, and then fully detailed it with the correct decals, wheels and tires. The work is documented by noted Cobra authority and H.R.E. President William H. Andrews, who confirms the authenticity of CSX3016 as the Bob Grossman Sebring Cobra in a letter that describes the restoration and specifically differentiates it from other Cobras. Now finished in its original livery as raced by Grossman, it is a showcase Cobra ready for both show and competition.
S166 1960 Porsche 356B Roadster 81134 $160,000 $185,000 $176,000 Mid A stunning presentation in factory-correct Aetna Blue with polished-aluminum side spears and a black interior, this 1960 Porsche 356B “Single Grille” Roadster has undergone a comprehensive restoration with close attention paid to the finer details. The engine has been upgraded by marque expert Harry Pellow—a man referred to as the “Maestro” in the Porsche world—with a potent 912-based engine that produces roughly 40% more horsepower than the original powerplant. The entire suspension and braking system have been rebuilt to exacting levels. In 1960, Porsche introduced the limited-production 356B Roadster. The car was essentially a spiritual successor to the 356A Speedster, the 1960 model that still maintained the minimalist ethos of its progenitor but added a few features that upped its usability, including roll-up windows, touring-style seats and a more effective convertible top. Like its predecessor Speedster, the roadster did share a separate chrome-framed windshield—differentiating itself from the more upscale cabriolet which had a welded-on, body-integrated front windshield surround. The roadster would be produced from 1960 through midyear 1961, and it was based on the new T-5 body design. While still maintaining the same general silhouette of the predecessor 356A and the same single-grille rear decklid and front hood, many consider the 356B T5 body as the ultimate interpretation of the Erwin Komenda teardrop shape. Porsche had already earned a reputation for exceptional build quality, and it maintained its standard of excellence by producing less than 35 cars per day. In order to meet increasing worldwide demand for its cars, the coachwork on the Roadster was awarded to Drauz of Heilbronn, Germany, a highly respected Karosserie whose quality equaled that of Porsche’s main body builders, Reutter and Karmann. This stunning Porsche is equipped with period-correct accessories including twin outside mirrors and a wood-rimmed steering wheel.
S167 1967 Volkswagen Type 11 21 window Bus 257052732 $115,000 $175,000 $132,000 Mid Over the years, the Volkswagen Samba Bus proved to be one of the most versatile and enjoyable vans ever built. Affordable, nearly anyone could have a fantastically thought-out travel vehicle. Visibility was optimal to say the least, especially in the 21-window design, and it was nearly impossible to suffer from claustrophobia in one. This Samba Bus was restored by VolksFab of Port Orchard, Washington, and it was completed in June 2018 with a 1776cc/72 HP engine and 4-speed manual transmission. It’s documented with a Stiftung AutoMuseum Volkswagen Certificate. Painted in two-tone Titan Red and white with a Platinum Silver interior, the Type II Bus features the Safari pop-out windshield and six other pop-out windows, as well as a sliding ragtop in the roof. The Bus is equipped with a side entry door, dash clock and eight skylights, and it is the epitome of simplified large-scale motoring. With such visibility, it’s no wonder these were the preferred vehicles for sight-seeing tour companies throughout Europe. Introduced in 1950 as the Type 2, or T2, following the T1 Beetle it was partially based on, the Volkswagen Bus launched a craze for small vans, the likes of which the world had never seen—a craze that would sustain and inspire through the 1980s with Chrysler reinventing the minivan under its own name, as well as Dodge and Plymouth. In some way, it seems possible that all minivans can trace their lineage back to the T2. During the 1960s, American “flower children” preferred the Volkswagen to any other vehicle and were particularly fond of the Bus for its freedom to roam the country without fear of needing a place to sleep; pull the bus off the road, slide the curtains shut and the Bus turned into a mobile home. By 1972, the iconic “V” nose and smooth rounded styling would succumb to a squarer design, ushering in a more modern era for the Bus. Regardless, they were infinitely popular and mark a unique mobile solution for many motorists.
S168 1960 Porsche 356B 111345 $125,000 $150,000 $148,500 Mid Best characterized as an “Outlaw,” this 1960 Porsche 356B has undergone a radical personality change using exclusively Porsche parts from different eras to create an integrated and focused build. The drivetrain is comprised of a 2.2L Porsche flat-6 engine with a six-Weber carburetor setup mated to a Porsche 901 5-speed manual transmission. The rear transaxle and suspension are 911-based, and the front suspension is lowered by 2.5-inches with dropped spindles. Porsche disc brakes are installed on all four corners, while the magnesium wheels are sourced from a 944 and shod with sticky 15-inch Hoosier tires. A Carrera-style fuel tank resides in the front, occupying the entire trunk compartment. Homage to Porsche history is evident throughout the car. The 356B is painted in Speedster Blue, the same beautiful hue that was found on a 1954 model. The fuel filler cap mounted in the center of the front decklid is pure Rennsport inspiration. Its lower rear valence harkens back to the 356 Carrera 2 panel design. The front decklid carries a hood handle from the 356A, as does the door window frames devoid of wind wings found on the earlier 356A. Rubber tie downs for the rear engine lid are period pieces from both the original 911R race cars and the 914-6 GT cars. The builder has however taken artistic license with the inset installation of the Porsche badge just below the front decklid, the removal of the front and rear bumpers, and redesigned brake air inlets in the front. On the inside, there is also a fitting Porsche tribute with Speedster seats and German squareweave carpet. A meticulous eight-year build, this street-legal 356B has been extensively road tested, meaning this fabulous machine is an excellent candidate for canyon carving.
S169 2006 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster ZHWBU26S96LA01926 $175,000.00 $200,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Introduced only as a coupe in 2001, the Murcielago was Lamborghini’s flagship car through the 2010 model year and the first all-new product under Volkswagen-Audi ownership. Designed by Luc Donckerwolke, Lamborghini’s head of design from 1998-2005, the Murcielago sought to return the brand to the sharper, more chiseled look that became synonymous with the Lamborghini name through the 1980s during the Countach and Jalpa heyday. The roadster became available in 2004, while a more powerful, 6.2L/640 HP V-12 engine became available in the middle of 2005, creating the Murcielago LP640. This 2006 roadster is powered by that engine and backed by all-wheel drive and the optional $10,000 E-Gear transmission. In this case painted Grigio Anteres Metallic with a Nero Perseus leather interior, these second-generation Murcielagos offered a number of improvements over the original, including more interior headroom, refined exterior design elements, a revised stereo system and an updated dashboard, just to name a few items. This roadster is equipped with the carbon fiber engine compartment trim, wind protector and deflectors. The Murcielago marked not only an improved sustaining of the Lamborghini brand, but also reassured aficionados that Volkswagen-Audi had only the best of intentions in keeping with traditions and building cars that Ferruccio himself would have been very proud of. While the trend at Lamborghini was to present cars in bright and even psychedelic colors, these new models were offered largely in understated tones and subdued but bold designs that might be of interest to more conservative buyers, people who wanted to enjoy the performance, prestige and qualities of a Lamborghini but who may otherwise be somewhat turned-off by all the flash the company was more traditionally known for. The concept worked well, as the Murcielago was one of the best-selling Lamborghinis of all time, bringing more conservative buyers to the showroom along with the traditionalists who preferred the original concepts.
S170 2000 Ferrari 550 Maranello 121851 $150,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Ferrari broke with its own tradition when it introduced the front-engined V-12 550 Maranello at Nürburgring in July 1996, upsetting the long-standing notion that any Ferrari flagship should pay homage to the company’s contemporary racing lineage by packaging the engine behind the cockpit, just as it had done in the 12-cylinder Berlinetta Boxer and subsequent Testarossa models. To Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo, however, the benefits of a midengine layout were somewhat exaggerated, reasoning that with careful design, a front-engine car can be made to match its opposite in most situations, while also facilitating easier maintenance and access to the drivetrain. The proof was in the 550 Maranello’s performance, which was demonstrably better in every way than the 512 Testarossa it replaced, shaving 3.2 seconds off the 512’s time at Ferrari’s Fiorano test track. Indeed, the 550 Maranello’s 199 MPH top speed made it one of the fastest cars in the world, the result of its exotic all-aluminum 5.5L DOHC V-12 engine that featured variable-length intake runners, sequential-port fuel injection and 48 valves and produced 478 HP at 7,000 RPM and 419 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 RPM. At the other end of the 550’s solid driveshaft tube was the gate-shifted 6-speed manual transaxle with limited-slip differential. The 550’s sleek shape, the product of more than 4,800 hours of wind-tunnel refinement, has drawn universal praise as one of Pininfarina’s most beautiful designs while also delivering extremely efficient aerodynamics and rock-solid high-speed stability. Dramatically finished in Giallo Modena, this 2000 Ferrari 550 Maranello is offered with just 18,034 miles on the odometer, just 130 of which have been added since a major belt service completed in 2016. Its factory 18-inch magnesium wheels are fitted with Bridgestone Potenza tires. The black leather interior features yellow trim accents, classic Daytona-style seats with yellow inserts and embossed Prancing Horse headrest logos, and that famous gated chrome shifter.
S171 1993 Porsche 911/964 Carrera RS America WP0AB2968PS419312 $100,000 $120,000 $132,000 10% One of just 701 produced in 1993 for the U.S. and Canadian markets and one of only four finished at the factory in color-to-sample 9898 Fly Yellow, this 1993 Porsche 911 RS America is a San Diego, California, car that has been meticulously maintained by a Porsche Certified mechanic in the San Diego area. Owned for the past 20 years by the registrar of the PCA RS America Registry and PCA Region chief driving instructor, it was invited to and displayed at Rennsport Reunion IV, V and VI at Laguna Seca and appears in several motoring books and magazines. Devoid of such refinements as power steering, sound insulation, armrests and rear seats, the RS America sported a naturally aspirated 3.6L/247 HP flat-6 pumping out 228 lb-ft of torque through a 5-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. Equipped with the original Cup 1 wheels, 4-wheel power disc brakes, Bilstein PSS10 adjustable shocks, power windows and Turbo-style rear spoiler that were standard equipment, this RS America is optioned with three of the four available factory options: a limited-slip differential, electric sliding sunroof and climate-control air conditioning. It also features the power-adjustable outside rearview mirrors, and option that was exclusive to the Fly Yellow examples. The XY-option black interior includes the original RSA door cards and fabric-covered RSA Carrera seats, color-matching door pulls and seat belts, and full instrumentation. This particularly clean RS America has never competed in any form of racing or competitive track events, and it has never been driven in the rain. It is fully armored against the hazards of the road with ClearPlex protective windshield film and clear bra film on the front hood, front bumper, headlights and surrounds. Documented with the original sales brochure and arbitration document, it is offered with: the owner’s manual, maintenance schedule and warranty info in the original leather document holder; the tools, jack, air compressor, spare and lug wrench; a custom alarm system with vehicle immobilizer, including two master keys with remote fobs; a water-proof outdoor custom car cover; and Porsche 964 nose and mirror bras.
S172 1951 Studebaker Manta Ray 594912 $200,000.00 $300,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A The one-of-a-kind 1951 Studebaker Manta Ray went from vision to road-going reality at the hands of two North American Aviation Company employees from the guided missile and jet aircraft divisions. Inspired by Harley Earl’s 1951 XP-8 Le Sabre and jet aircraft of the era, Glen Hire and Vernon Antoine poured more than 4,000 hours of sweat and tears into the project before the Manta Ray emerged from their home garage in Whittier, California, as a testament to their evolved design and engineering skills. The Manta Ray was subsequently featured in the February 1954 issue of “Rod and Custom” magazine in an article written by famed MOON Speed Equipment Founder Dean Moon. In 1959, car collector L.L. “Peanuts” Lacer of Junction City, Kansas, traded a Volkswagen and a Crosley for the Manta Ray. After Lacer passed away in 1990, his son Don became the car’s new caretaker. After spending more than half a century in a warehouse in Junction City, the Manta Ray reemerged at the 2016 Amelia Island Concours in the Concepts Beyond Detroit Class and appeared in an episode of “Chasing Classic Cars” with Wayne Carini. Like the GM Motorama Corvette and Oldsmobile Starfire, the Manta Ray was built of then-futuristic glass fiber-reinforced plastic, more commonly known as fiberglass. Each of the 14 molded body sections were fitted onto a shortened 1951 Studebaker chassis. The nose cone was hand sculpted from wood and then cast into metal from a mold. Triple tail lamps sourced from a 1952 Lincoln mimic jet-turbine exhaust, and the center lens conceals the fuel fill neck. Originally finished in gold lacquer and powered by a 232 CI Studebaker V-8, the car currently wears a light shade of pink and packs a dual-quad Cadillac V-8 and 3-speed manual transmission propulsion team. Stewart Warner instruments and a Plymouth speedometer sit in the dash, and the cone-shaped steering column is topped with a sectioned 1953 Lincoln steering wheel that waits for its next owner to engage in an authentic Jet Age custom experience.
S173 2005 Ferrari 575 Superamerica 145103 $350,000.00 $400,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A A unique variant of the 575M Maranello, the Superamerica provides open-air motoring thanks to a very unique “Revocromico” electrochromic glass-panel roof that rotates 180-degrees at the rear to lie flat over the trunk. The glass roof panel was made by Saint-Gobain in France and uses a carbon fiber frame to allow a strong but lightweight support system. Only 559 Ferrari 575 Superamericas were built, presumably based on Enzo Ferrari’s philosophy of producing one less than the world demanded. Only 43 had a manual transmission, the remainder having the quicker-shifting F1 paddle gearbox like this example. Having covered only 4,918 miles from new, this Superamerica features the optional $23,500 GTC Handling Package, which was designed to increase the already capable nature of the car with ceramic brakes, a stiffer adaptive independent suspension with anti-roll bars, sport exhaust system, softer compound performance tires, special wheels and remapped calibration of the paddle-shifted F1 transmission. Powered by the 5.7L/533 HP V-12, as seen in the 575M, it uses a limited-slip differential to deliver power to the rear wheels and absolutely promises a very swift ride. Presented in the desirable Rosso Corsa with Scuderia fender shields and a Nero-colored leather interior with Daytona-style seats piped in red, the car features an interior that also displays a Nero leather rear shelf and carbon fiber interior trim. Ferrari of Austin performed an extensive servicing in August 2018. The 575 Superamerica would be the fourth of five Ferraris branded as Superamerica, its very unique roof developed to answer the cries of those who had purchased the previous 550 Barchetta, a car that was quite literally meant for perfect-weather cruising. Equipped only with a temporary soft top in case of sudden inclement weather, the 550 Barchetta meant to call back to the earliest Ferrari roadsters, though wasn’t exactly what customers wanted. Thanks to the special glass roof system, the 575 Superamerica can go from open convertible to closed coupe in just about 60 seconds, and their exclusivity from day one marked them as one of the more desirable Ferraris ever built.
S174 1965 Mercedes-Benz 230SL Roadster 11304210012834 $120,000.00 $140,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Introduced at the 1963 Geneva Automobile Salon, the Mercedes-Benz 230SL Roadster was conceived by Mercedes-Benz Technical Director Fritz Nallinger to fill the gaping divide between the sophisticated and expensive 300SL and the sporty 190SL. Originally based on the W127 passenger car using a 2.2L fuel-injected inline-6, Nallinger’s project was eventually stalled by technical problems, prompting him to turn to the new W111 sedan platform as a basis for his new sporting machine. The ensuing 230SL roadster was a superb grand tourer that vastly improved on the 190SL’s performance while supplanting the 300SL’s raw-edged personality with more refinement. The 230SL’s sleek coachwork, designed by Paul Bracq, replaced the rounded contours of its predecessors with more angular features capped by a new removable “Pagoda” hardtop, so named for its upturned side sections that increased both rigidity and glass area. The Bosch fuel-injected 2.3L/150 HP inline-6 combined with an innovative new independent rear suspension and front disc brakes give the 230SL admirable performance and handling, complemented by a comfortable and luxurious interior. Comprehensively restored in 2007, this 1965 Mercedes-Benz 230SL evokes the definitive grand-touring experience of that era. Dressed in expertly applied dark blue paint over a sharp light Ivory interior, it remains in exceptional overall condition after a recent service, exhibiting excellent chrome and brightwork inside and out, careful interior detailing with fresh-looking upholstery, dash wood, gauges and switchgear, and a clean engine compartment and undercarriage. Showing a believed-correct 71,124 miles, it is well optioned with power steering, a 4-speed manual transmission, Becker Europa AM/FM radio and both the Pagoda hardtop and soft top, the latter renewed with paint-matching Dark Blue canvas. It has also been retrofitted with later 280SL-style headrests for increased passenger safety. This is a very attractive example of the car that set a new standard in Mercedes-Benz grand-touring automobiles.
S175 1963 Chevrolet Corvette 30837S107522 $400,000.00 $500,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A This stunning 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Coupe is a custom build completed for SEMA 2018 in Las Vegas, where it was displayed at the Douglas Interior booth. A no-nonsense Resto Mod build with a serious performance vibe, it is loaded with all the best components and hardware. Cloaked in PPG Jet Black paint with PPG Premier clear coat for a foot-deep finish, it features a custom chassis made from American 3/16-inch hot-rolled, CNC cut, tig-welded boxed steel mounting RideTech suspension with front and rear Muscle Bars A-arms and adjustable coilover shocks. Wilwood supplied the all-wheel disc-brake system employing 14-inch cross-drilled and slotted rotors, 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers, a Wilwood master cylinder, hand-fabricated brake hard lines with aircraft-grade A/N fittings, and an E-Stopp electric emergency brake. The car’s custom-built LS3 376/625 HP engine incorporates a forged rotating assembly comprising a K1 crankshaft with 3.622 stroke, K1 rods, ARP 2000 hardware, Weisco pistons, ARP main studs, 3.2cc pistons with 10.6:1 compression, a Holley Sniper intake, Billet Specialties valve covers and a Nick Williams polished billet throttle body. Fed by a custom aluminum fuel cell with Aeromotive stealth fuel system, the LS3 also features a polished billet March serpentine system with power steering and a custom jet-coated stainless-steel exhaust system. A Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed with LS9 clutch and 4.11 Dana 44 rear end complete the bulletproof driveline. Nitto Invo red-stripe 245/35-18 front and 315/30-19 rear tires matched to custom one-off 18×9-inch front and 19×12-inch rear Budnik wheels with knock-off center caps keep this coupe firmly planted. In addition to Euro flush-mount glass from AM Hot Rod Glass, the car boasts 27 exclusive custom carbon fiber components, including the engine bay surround, front and rear bumpers, exhaust valance, fuel rails, rocker panels, cookie trays, gas cap and various interior components including the dash, glovebox, console and door panels. HRH Designs of Las Vegas designed the custom interior using Douglas interior leather products and a one-piece headliner, ACC premium carpet, LED mood down lighting, Dakota Digital HDX gauges and clock, Clayton Machine Works billet pedals, shifter and door pulls, Nu-Relics power windows, Vintage Air, and a Rockford Fosgate upgraded sound system with Bluetooth.
S176 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider 151053 $190,000.00 $220,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A Ferrari advanced its mastery of the midengine V-8 sports car in the successor to the marvelous 360 Modena, the F430, an extraordinary low-mileage example of which is presented in this classically adorned 2006 Spider. First shown at the 2004 Paris Motor Show, the F430 naturally bore enough surface similarities to the 360 Modena to maintain a family resemblance, but those similarities proved only skin-deep. A collaboration between Pininfarina and Ferrari’s head of design, Frank Stephenson, the F430’s exterior styling combined taut surfaces and Enzo-sourced detailing with a front-end treatment recalling the shark-nosed Ferrari grand prix and sports prototype racers of the early 1960s. Internal and external airflow management increased downforce by 50% over the 360, topping out at 575 pounds at speeds over 180 MPH. The F430’s all-aluminum central structure is torsionally much more rigid, and the overall package is a significant technological leap forward. Dramatically displayed under a glass cover a la the 360 Modena, the F430’s all-new 4.3L V-8 engine incorporates a flat-plane crank, variable valve timing and a sophisticated resonance intake system to produce 490 HP at 8,500 RPM and a forceful 343 lb-ft of torque. A dual-clutch F1 transmission and dry-sump oiling allow the engine and transmission to be placed low in the chassis, aiding the F430’s electronically controlled suspension in producing incredible handling, with an important contribution from Brembo disc brakes. This F430’s 190 actual miles are evident in its impeccably great condition. Its Rosso Corsa paint and tan leather interior are a time-honored combination that remain a favorite with Ferrari enthusiasts, and in this case, are nicely complemented with Scuderia fender shields, red brake calipers and factory ball-polished alloy wheels fitted with Bridgestone Potenza tires. Opening the fold-down top reveals typical first-class materials and craftsmanship in the F430 cockpit that features Daytona-style power bucket seats, F1-inspired driver controls and carbon-fiber accents. This fabulous F430 Spider promises its new owner the exhilaration and sheer joy of Ferrari-style motoring.
S178 1960 Mercury Parklane Convertible 0Z55M506441 $100,000 $150,000 $137,500 Mid One of just 1,525 produced in 1960, this Mercury Parklane convertible was professionally restored to concours-winning standards. Introduced in 1958 as the new luxury flagship of the Mercury brand, the Parklane rode on its own 125-inch wheelbase with a stretched body incorporating the toned-down styling adopted after the flop of the overwrought Turnpike Cruiser. After expanding to 128 inches in 1959, the Parklane adopted the standard Mercury’s 126-inch measure, but there remained plenty of luxury and power to set it above the rest of the lineup. The 430/310 HP Marauder V-8 engine was the largest passenger-car engine in the industry, giving the Parklane impressive and easy cruising power in concert with the Multi-Drive Merc-O-Matic dual-range 3-speed automatic transmission and flexible 2.91 rear axle ratio. At more than $4,000, the Parklane convertible was the priciest of the Mercs, though it was also one of the best-looking convertibles of the era. Its Panoramic Skylight windshield was both a wraparound and “wrapover” design offering unparalleled forward vision, and its wraparound Plexiglas rear window was the only one of its kind. Still presenting in superb condition throughout with its Medium Javelin Bronze paint, black power top and bronze interior, this 1960 Mercury Parklane Convertible also boasts superb undercarriage detailing. Its wealth of amenities includes power steering and brakes, power windows and seat, factory air conditioning, day/night inside mirror, dual outside mirrors with driver’s remote, pushbutton radio and a bronze top boot. Excellent bright trim and fender skirts, full-size wheel covers and wide whitewall tires enhance the Parklane’s clean, elegant styling. This Parklane has earned AACA Junior and Senior First Place awards and a Grand National First in 2012 and won the International Mercury Owner’s Association (IMOA) National Best of Show in 2015, which serves as testament to the outstanding quality of its restoration and subsequent care.
S180 2017 Ferrari F12 70th Anniversary 228803 $365,000 $435,000 $440,000 1% Driven just 181 delivery miles, this singularly unique 2017 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was produced under the Ferrari Tailor Made program that celebrated Ferrari’s 70th anniversary in 2017 with a series of 70 special-edition liveries inspired by historically significant Ferraris. This is the only F12 Berlinetta modeled after the legendary 275 GTS4 NART Spider. Named after the North American Racing Team and created expressly for the U.S. market in 1967-68, only 10 of the NART Spiders were built, making this one of the most valuable Ferraris of all time. It was appropriate that the F12 be part of the 70th anniversary celebrations. Introduced at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, the F12 fulfilled Chairman Luca di Montezemolo’s mandate that it be “the highest performance Ferrari ever made.” In keeping with modern practice, Ferrari started with a multi-element aluminum chassis laden with Manettino-controlled double-wishbone front and multilink rear suspension (offering five different driving modes), as well as massive carbon-ceramic brakes with ABS and active cooling. Ferrari aerodynamicists worked their magic on the F12’s gorgeous aluminum body, most notably in the innovative “Air Bridges” that direct high-pressure air rushing over the hood and down along the body sides, creating a boundary layer that reduces turbulence and drag. That aero wizardry comes into full play under the power of the F12’s 6.3L V-12 engine, another masterpiece of Ferrari engineering that delivers a glorious 731 HP at 8,250 RPM and 509 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 RPM. Mated to a rear-mounted, paddle-shift 7-speed dual-clutch F1 transmission, this magnificent powerplant propels the F12 to 60 MPH in just 3.6 seconds on the way to a top speed exceeding 211 MPH. This F12 Berlinetta bears the Blu Profondo Metallizzato paint and Camel leather interior of the 275 GTS4 NART Spider special edition—livery No. 39—in a gorgeous package that includes Scuderia fender shields, dual-zone climate control and Pirelli P-Zero tires on forged, 20-inch diamond-cut wheels.
S181 1966 VRC Race car VRC906001 $170,000 $210,000 $126,500 -26% Built by Vintage Racing Cars of Buenos Aires, Argentina, this VRC race car is a faithful recreation of the Porsche 906, which set a new direction for racing car efforts out of Stuttgart in the mid-1960s. Introduced as an all-new sports racer built to the FIA’s Group 4 rules, the Porsche 906 used a lightweight space frame of small-diameter steel tubing fitted with state-of-the art suspension and brakes. Its wind-carved fiberglass body was not a structural component; instead, it contributed to the cars overall light weight and proved highly aerodynamically efficient. The Porsche 906 showed its winning ways right out of the gate with a class win and sixth overall finish in the 1966 Daytona 24 Hours. These racers owned their class that year, scoring a number of wins that included a sixth straight win in the Targa Florio. Built on a tubular-steel space frame and a handcrafted fiberglass body, this VRC-built racer faithfully replicates its German inspiration in myriad details. Powered by an air-cooled 2.7L Porsche flat-6 engine mated to a Porsche Type 915 5-speed transaxle, this machine has the correct drivetrain to match the special look and feel that one expects out of such a handsome creation. The details that make up this car are truly astounding, with features such as a DOT triple-laminated security windshield and Plexiglas lateral and rear windows, red-upholstered bucket seats with Sprint harnesses, and a fire-suppression system. Winner of the 2012 500 Kilometers of Buenos Aires, it also won Best Recreation at AutoClásica 2013 in Buenos Aires and scored an F Class win in the Classic 24 Hours at Daytona. This VRC race car showcases impeccable quality and finish that is welcomed with open arms to compete in a number of prestigious racing events.
S182 1954 Jaguar XK120 DHC 678087 $150,000.00 $175,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A When the XK120 debuted in 1948, it stunned the world and took Jaguar by surprise. It was sensational to look at and sensationally quick; it was soon proven that 120 really did stand for 120 MPH, making it, quite simply, the fastest production car in the world. As for the XK, it stands for the famed 6-cylinder twin-overhead-cam XK engine, which debuted in the XK120, powered C- and D-type Le Mans winners, and endured until 1986. Jaguar reveled in the publicity but couldn’t handle the demand. With an initial 240 examples handcrafted in aluminum over ash frames, it wasn’t until 1950 that the company had tooled up to deliver a true production XK120 model with a steel body. A more costly fixed-head coupe with added refinements of walnut dash and trim, improved ventilation, roll-up windows and opening quarterlights arrived in 1951. The final flourish, and most expensive of all, was the drophead coupe of 1953, which augmented the refinements of the fixed-head coupe with a three-layer wool-lined folding convertible top in place of the removable roadster top. With a new windshield profile and opening windows in place of the roadster’s leaky sidescreens, the drophead coupe offered far more comfort and weather and wind protection. Not only is the drophead coupe the rarest of all production XK120s with just 1,765 produced, but it was also the 120 of choice for many touring motorists, on account of its blend of refinement and practicality with fresh-air fun. Moreover, today’s 1954 example is one of just an estimated 370 drophead coupes from the final year of production. Boasting its original sheet metal, matching-numbers drivetrain and the original tool kit, it is also documented with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Yet, this multiple-award winner is even more distinguished for being a two-owner California car with original sheet metal and a mere 500 miles under its tires since its 2015 restoration.
S183 1965 Sunbeam Tiger Mark 1 Roadster B9470690LRXFE $90,000 $110,000 N/R $94,600 Mid There was nothing new about popping a good ol’ American V-8 into a stylish English car. That’s also exactly what Carroll Shelby did with the AC Ace to create the awesome Cobra. When the Rootes Group in Britain decided to do the same with its Sunbeam Alpine, it also commissioned Shelby to produce a prototype, and although Rootes already had close links with Chrysler, Shelby opted for a Ford V-8 as the Chrysler mill wouldn’t fit. To cope with the 260 CI V-8, the chassis, suspension and rear axle were beefed up, and thus, late in 1964, the pretty—but tame—4-cylinder Alpine was transformed into the fearsome Tiger, which was capable of 117 MPH with 0-60 MPH coming up in 9 seconds. The front-disc rear-drum brake setup remained the same as on the Alpine, although steering was changed to rack-and-pinion to cope with space restrictions. A wood-rim steering wheel, slim body line chrome and badging provided the garnish. The British magazine “Motor Sport” was one of many that approved, commenting, “No combination of an American V-8 and a British chassis could be happier.” An MkII version with a Ford 289 CI V-8 arrived in 1967, but this turned out to be a brief swansong as Chrysler had taken control of Rootes and wasn’t about to sanction a car powered by Ford. Mercifully, our 1965 MkI example is presented in correct Moonstone White and has benefited from a rotisserie restoration completed in 2018 with discreet but sensible upgrades. The car is equipped with the correct 260 CI V-8 engine and 4-speed transmission, and the tasteful upgrades include a three-core radiator, Pertronix ignition and Koni coilover shocks. Documentation includes the STOA certificate and an extensive restoration photo library. Equipped with both hard and soft tops, this Tiger is ready to snarl.
S184 1984 Oldsmobile Hurst / Olds 1G3AK4792EM395048 $25,000.00 $30,000.00 Not sold Not sold N/A One of approximately 3,500 examples produced in 1984, this Hurst/Olds has covered only 11,125 believed-original miles since new. In 1984, the Hurst/Olds came in silver with a black lower section divided by a red stripe, a thinner red pinstripe at the beltline accentuating the look and actually serving to elongate the look of the Oldsmobile. In muscling up the image of the otherwise sedate Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, stylists not only relied on a racy and bold but modern paint and stripe scheme, but also mildly revised the front air dam, added a bulge to the hood and a spoiler across the trunk. Certain bright pieces were blacked out and dual exhaust pipes emerged from just behind the back wheels at a slight angle. Aggressive 15-inch Super Stock III wheels shod with performance tires completed the exterior look. In spite of all the flash and pizzazz outside, it’s likely that the most exciting and interesting thing about the machine was the Hurst Lightning Rod Shifter package, a Hurst/Olds exclusive. Jutting up through the wood-grain-adorned center console were three chrome shifter rods with black ball knobs and chrome lock buttons controlling the automatic transmission. At first sight, they can appear hugely intimidating, a reason Oldsmobile’s marketing team assembled a great instruction booklet that proved not only were they easy to use, but a lot of fun. Surrounding the exclusive shifter system, of course, was a well-appointed interior in a deep, rich maroon color complete with bucket seats with power adjustments for the driver, a center console, performance-oriented instrument cluster and premium cloth upholstery to name a few of the upscale elements within. The cars came with air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, power locks, power windows and an AM/FM cassette stereo system. This example also features the rare moonroof option. The High-Output Oldsmobile 307 CI V-8 features a 4-barrel carburetor, and the W40 option code is present on the trim tag.
S185 1996 Porsche 911/993 Carrera 4S WP0AA2991TS321293 $110,000 $125,000 N/R $20,900 -81% Powered by a twin-turbocharged, twin-plug 3.8L engine producing 600 HP, this no-expense-spared 1996 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S has been infused with testosterone and adrenaline by S-CAR-GO Racing, a renowned and respected tuner of Zuffenhausen rear-engine rocket ships that is located in the Marin County region of Southern California. The artistry of the company’s workmanship is evident in the custom-fabricated headers, exhaust and air box. Starting with a 993—Porsche’s last generation of the air-cooled 911—the Carrera 4S started life as an all-wheel drive variant of the model lineup. It came equipped with the identical suspension of the flagship Turbo, but it was powered by a naturally aspirated 285 HP engine—paling in comparison to the 600 HP of this brilliant yellow Carrera 4S. The all-wheel drive system, with its dynamic limited-slip differential and active braking, brought 959 technology and power apportionment to the 993, providing a platform to gracefully accept quantum leaps in horsepower without adversely affecting drivetrain and suspension dynamics. The engine transformation is only part of an integrated package that includes extensive suspension, body work, brake and interior refinements. The body has been treated to RUF-style body modifications with shaved rain gutters, a custom front and rear fascia and decklid spoiler, and a set of 18-inch HRE R40 lightweight wheels mounted on Michelin performance tires. The interior features black Recaro A8 race seats trimmed in leather and Alcantara with deviating yellow stitching, carbon fiber door panels and a matching roll bar. The brakes are massive floating rotors and multi-piston calipers, and the 6-speed manual transmission is linked to a GT4060 limited-slip differential. This 911 Carrera 4S was a featured car at the 2011 PCA Concours Monterey and is documented with paperwork and photos.
S187 1981 Toyota Landcruiser CA949718 $90,000 $120,000 $110,000 Mid Legendary factory durability, proven aftermarket off-road equipment and American V-8 power make this restored and modified 1981 Toyota Land Cruiser a peerless all-terrain performer. The transformation from stock into a handcrafted Land Cruiser began with aluminum body and panel fabrication by Aqualu Industries in British Columbia, Canada. A custom-built roll cage and custom-fabricated front and rear bumpers were fitted for rugged protection, and the body was painted with a PPG Antique Blue color and PPG En-V clear-coat combination. Utility and luxury come together in the cabin with upholstery by Finish Line Interiors. Deep, cushioned, bucket seats and a center console provide comfortable room for two up front, and bedside bench-seat rows add multipassenger adventure capacity. A tilt-column with Billet Specialties steering wheel, Classic Instruments Moal Bomber series gauges and Vintage Air deliver climate-controlled comfort and command. The removable, bowed, canvas top opens to the sky. The Land Cruiser is powered by a 350 CI small-block Chevrolet V-8 and 700R 4-speed automatic transmission power team. MSD Atomic electronic fuel injection and a K&N air filter provide peak air-fuel efficiency, and tube headers mated to a custom-built dual exhaust flow maximum sound. MSD multispark ignition provides the spark, and a Ron Davis aluminum radiator keeps high performance cool. Power is channeled over any terrain through Strange 9-inch third members in front and rear Ford housings with Dana 44 hubs, axles and spindles. Adjustable JRI coilover shocks and a custom 4-link suspension by BRE Rods and Classics work with power steering and Wilwood power disc brakes for world-class control. The Land Cruiser is ready to roam on body-color-keyed American Racing wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tires with a matching spare and WARN 10,000-pound roller fairlead winch, just in case.
