(b) The Seller has complied with all requirements relating to any export or import of the Lot as may be required, and has notified Coys in writing of any failure to comply with such requirements by the Seller or any previous owner of the Lot; (c) The Seller has notified Coys in writing of any material alterations to the Lot of which the Seller is aware and of any concerns expressed by third parties in relation to the authenticity, provenance, origin, age, condition or quality of the Lot and has provided Coys with all such information in the Seller’s possession; (d) In the case of a Motor Vehicle which may be lawfully used on a public road, complies with all statutory provisions and that there is in force any test certificate required by law in relation to such use, or the Seller has notified Coys in writing that any such vehicle cannot lawfully be used on a public road; (e) The Seller warrants that the information about the Lot given to Coys, including (for the avoidance of doubt and without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) all information set out in the Auction Entry Form, and statements made about it, is true 7.2 The Seller of a Lot not in the possession of Coys on its premises or under its control warrants and undertakes that the Lot will be available and in a deliverable state on demand by the Buyer; . 7.3 The Seller hereby acknowledges that Coys has entered into this contract in reliance on the representations set out in Conditions 7.1(a) to (e) and the information set out in the Auction Entry Form. 7.4 The Seller shall indemnify Coys against any and all actions, claims, actual costs (including legal and expert costs, fees and disbursements), demands, expenses, fines, liabilities, losses, penalties and proceedings arising out of the falsity of any of the warranties and representations set out in Conditions 7.1(a) to (f). 7.5. If Coys has reasonable cause for believing that the Seller is in breach of any one or more of the warranties set out in this Condition 7, Coys may by giving notice in writing to the Seller decline to sell the Lot, and the Seller shall be liable to Coys as though the Seller had withdrawn the lot from sale without Coys consent. If the Lot is in the possession of Coys, it may retain it until any sums due to Coys are paid, the cost of storage being borne by the Seller. 7.6 The Seller shall further indemnify Coys in respect of any actual legal or other costs reasonably incurred by it in investigating any claim concerning the ownership of a Lot and/or the Seller’s right to sell the Lot, the accuracy of the description of the Lot contained in the Catalogue or in defending any claim relating thereto, and Coys shall be entitled to withhold the amount of such costs from any payment due to be made to the Seller in accordance with Condition 2.
8. VEHICLE REGISTRATION NUMBERS 8.1. If the Seller wishes to sell any Motor Vehicle but to retain the right to the registration number of the Vehicle (“VRN”) , it is the Seller’s responsibility to notify Coys in writing either on the Auction Entry Form or sooner. 8.2. It shall be the Seller’s responsibility to take all necessary steps to ensure that the current VRN is reserved and that a new number is allocated prior to the Motor Vehicle being sold at the Auction and if he does not do so, Coys shall not be responsible for any loss or damage whatsoever and howsoever arising (including for the avoidance of doubt arising out of Coys’ negligence) out of the Seller’s loss of the right to the VRN following the sale of the Vehicle. 8.3. Coys may, at its own discretion, (without any assumption of responsibility or duty towards the Seller or the Buyer) take such steps to facilitate the reservation or transfer of any particular registration number as it thinks fit in order to assist the Seller or Buyer but strictly on condition that no claim attaches to Coys for taking any such steps whether arising out of Coys’ negligence or any other cause whatsoever. 9. RESERVES 9.1. The Seller may place a reserve price (“Reserve”) on any Lot prior to the Auction and once placed by the Seller, it may not be changed without the written consent of Coys. All Lots will be sold without Reserve unless a Reserve has been agreed by Coys in writing. 9.2. Where a Reserve has been agreed, only Coys may bid on behalf of the Seller. If the Seller makes such bid, then the Auctioneer may knock the Lot down to the Seller without observing any Reserve and the Seller shall pay to Coys the Buyer’s Premium in addition to the Seller’s Commission and Expenses. 9.3. Where a Reserve is agreed, Coys may in its sole discretion sell a Lot for less than the Reserve but shall account to the Seller as if the Lot had been sold for the Reserve. 9.4. Where no Reserve has been placed, the Seller may bid either personally or through the agency of any person. 9.5. If no Reserve has been placed on a Lot, Coys shall not be held liable should the Lot be purchased for a price below any lowest estimated selling price of the Lot given in any Catalogue, save insofar as and limited to the extent that the same arises out of the actual fault or negligence of Coys. 10. COMMISSION AND EXPENSES 10.1. The parties hereby acknowledge that Coys shall be entitled to deduct from the Hammer Price a Seller’s Commission of 10% plus VAT (or, in the case of automobilia, 15% plus VAT) or such other sum agreed by Coys in writing, plus any Expenses, and any other sums due from the Seller to Coys. 10.2. The Buyer shall pay (and the Seller acknowledges Coys’ entitlement to) a Buyer’s Premium equal to 15% of the first £30,000 or €50,000 of the Hammer Price, and 10% upon such of the Hammer Price as exceeds £30,000 or €50,000, plus VAT. 11. PHOTOGRAPHY AND ILLUSTRATIONS The Seller permits Coys without payment to photograph and make illustrations of any Lot and to use at its discretion any photograph or illustration of or in respect of a Lot supplied by the Seller, whether or not in conjunction with the Auction. The copyright in all photographs taken and illustrations made of any Lot by or on behalf of Coys shall be the absolute property of Coys. 12. COYS’ ESTIMATES AND DESCRIPTIONS 12.1. Coys make no warranty or representation as to the anticipated or likely selling price of any Lot. Any estimate given by Coys, whether written or oral and whether or not printed in any Catalogue for the Auction, as to the estimated selling price of any Lot is a statement of opinion only and may be subject to revision from time to time at Coys’ sole discretion and should not be relied upon as an indication of the actual selling price. 12.2. Coys shall not be liable to the Seller for any error or mis-statement in or omission from the description of any Lot in any Catalogue where:(a) Coys have been provided with such description by the Seller or any person on his behalf; or (b) Coys have provided the Seller with a copy of such description prior to publication of the
Catalogue and neither the Seller nor any person on his behalf have notified Coys in writing within seven days of any error or mis-statement in or omission from the description. 12.3. Any Motor Vehicle is sold as a collector’s item and not as a means of transport. Buyers are specifically warned that any vehicle sold as such may well have had parts replaced and paint renewed or be made up of parts from other vehicles the condition of which may be difficult to establish. Coys has to rely on information as to date, condition authenticity, maintenance, repairs and restoration provided by Sellers and does not, and cannot, undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lots to establish whether the vehicle or other Lot conforms with the description in the catalogue. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to carry out such inspection as he thinks necessary. Unless a vehicle is described as wholly original, the Buyer may not assume that all or any part of it is original. 12.4. No warranty is given by Coys as to the accuracy of the description of any Lot in any Catalogue or as to the age, authenticity, suitability, provenance, attribution, origin, condition, fitness for purpose, merchantable or satisfactory quality of any Lot or roadworthiness of any Motor Vehicle, and any warranties or conditions that would otherwise be implied by the Sale of Goods Act 1979 in relation to the foregoing are hereby expressly excluded. 12.5. Coys has no duty to the Seller to investigate the accuracy of the description of any Lot provided by or on behalf of the Seller. 13. WITHDRAWAL OF LOTS 13.1. The Seller may by notice in writing to Coys withdraw the Lot from the Auction. In the event of such withdrawal, the Seller shall within 14 days of withdrawal pay Coys the sums set out in this Condition 13. All such sums shall be payable to Coys as remuneration for the services performed by Coys down to the date of withdrawal, and not by way of penalty or liquidated damages. 13.2 In all cases of withdrawal, including under 7.5 above, the Seller shall be liable to pay Coys 10% of the estimated value of the Lot, notwithstanding that commission of a lesser, or no, amount had previously been agreed, to reflect the time, effort, loss of publicity and buyer’s premium suffered by Coys. The estimated value shall be the higher of:(a) The Seller’s estimate of value as previously notified to Coys or, if more than one figure, the highest figure or if none; (b) The value estimated in the Catalogue, or if more than one figure is given, the highest figure; (c) If none of the above apply such figure as Coys shall reasonably estimate as the value. (d) Plus in each case VAT on such fee and Expenses. 13.3. In the event that the Lot is withdrawn from the Auction after the publication of the Auction catalogue, the Seller shall in addition to the sum set out in Condition 13.2, be liable to pay Coys a further sum equal to the Buyer’s Premium (as defined in Condition 10.2 above) that would have been payable upon the Lot realising the aforesaid estimated value at Auction, plus VAT. 13.4. In the event that the Seller withdraws the Lot from the Auction, the Seller shall arrange for collection and removal of the Lot at his own expense within two working days after the date of withdrawal provided that the Seller may not collect the Lot unless and until any withdrawal fee payable under Conditions 13.2 and 13.3 shall have been paid in full. 14. UNSOLD LOTS 14.1 Where any Lot fails to sell at the Auction, Coys will have the sole and exclusive right to sell the Lot by private treaty within 14 days of the Auction date. These terms and conditions (including, for the avoidance of doubt, Condition 9 as to Reserves) shall govern any such sale by private treaty. 14.2. Unless Coys elects to sell the Lot by private treaty in accordance with Clause 14.1, the Seller shall arrange for the removal of any unsold Lot by 1.00 pm the day following the Auction or by such other time as agreed by Coys. 14.3. Failure to remove any unsold Lot pursuant to Condition 14.2 above will entitle Coys to charge the Seller a reasonable storage charge per day. The Seller shall further reimburse Coys for
any reasonable removal, insurance and other expenses. 14.4. If within 28 days after the Auction the Seller fails to give instructions to Coys regarding the disposal of the Lot, Coys shall have the exclusive right at its election to: (a) sell the Lot by private treaty, or (b) by Auction without Reserve, in either case in accordance with these Conditions. In such case, Coys shall be entitled to deduct from any sale price all sums owing to Coys including the Seller’s Commission and any charges incurred under this Condition 14. 15. RISK AND INSURANCE 15.1 The Lot shall at all times remain at the risk of the Seller until ownership of the Lot passes from the Seller to the Buyer under these Conditions. At no time shall ownership of the Lot pass to Coys other than in accordance with clause 21.4(e)(iii). 15.2 Until such time as risk passes to the Buyer in accordance with Condition 18, responsibility for arranging insurance for the Lot shall remain with the Seller, whereupon it shall pass to the Buyer. In no case shall Coys undertake responsibility for arranging insurance. 15.3. Coys will not be liable for any injury, loss or damage caused by any Lot unless caused by the negligence of Coys, its employees or agents in the ordinary course of their duties to Coys or by the Seller’s negligence or other breach of the Conditions. The Seller or the Buyer (as appropriate) shall compensate Coys in full in respect of all claims and proceedings brought against Coys in respect of injury, loss or damage caused by the Seller’s or Buyer’s (as appropriate) negligence or breach of any obligation under the Conditions. 16. THE BUYER 16.1. The Buyer shall be the highest bidder at the Auction. The Buyer’s bid shall form the basis of the Hammer Price. Any dispute as to any bid shall be settled by the Auctioneer at his absolute discretion. 16.2. Every bidder shall be deemed to act as principal unless prior to the commencement of the Auction there is a written acceptance by Coys that a bidder acts as agent on behalf of the named principal, and that its principal has agreed to and/ or is bound by these Conditions; in which case he shall be jointly liable with the principal by these Conditions. 16.3. No person shall be entitled to bid at the Auction without first having completed and delivered to Coys a bidder’s registration form and bidders attention is drawn to the information in the Catalogue under the heading “General Information”. 17. ABSENTEE BIDS Whilst the interest of prospective Buyers are best served by attendance at the Auction, Coys will if so instructed execute bids on behalf of prospective bidders. Coys, its agents or employees shall not be responsible for any defaults beyond Coys’ control relating to telephone, fax or other absentee bids including without limitation any telecommunications fault or failure. 18. SALE 18.1. A contract of sale is made between the Seller and the Buyer on the acceptance of a bid by the fall of the Auctioneer’s hammer. Coys is not a party to the contract of sale and has no liability for any act or default by the Seller or the Buyer. 18.2. The Buyer shall :(a) Immediately upon a Lot is sold, give to Coys his name and address and, if so requested, proof of identity if he has not already done so; and (b) Pay to Coys as agent for the Seller the Purchase Price in accordance with Condition 20.1 unless credit terms have been agreed with Coys in writing before the Auction. 18.3. Full payment for all Lots must be made to Coys by means of bankers draft, cash, telegraphic transfer or debit card in pounds sterling or the currency in which the sale was conducted. Where the Buyer wishes to pay by cheque and Coys has agreed that the Buyer may do so, the Lot will not be released until the cheque has been cleared. 18.4. No Lot may be collected until the Purchase Price has been received by Coys and payments by a Buyer to Coys may be applied by Coys towards any sums due from that Buyer to Coys on any account whatsoever notwithstanding any
directions to the contrary by the Buyer or his agent whether express or implied. 18.5. The ownership of the Lot will pass to the Buyer only when the Purchase Price in cleared funds has been received by Coys. 18.6. Immediately a Lot is sold the risk shall pass to the Buyer notwithstanding that possession will not be given and ownership will not pass to the Buyer before payment of the Purchase Price in full and Coys will not be responsible for any damage to or the loss or destruction of the Lot or any injury, loss or damage caused by the Lot unless caused by the negligence of or other breach of duty by Coys, its employees or agents in the ordinary course of their duties to Coys. The Buyer will compensate Coys in full in respect of all claims and proceedings brought against Coys in respect of any loss or damage to the Lot or injury, loss or damage caused by it not arising from the negligence of or other breach of duty by Coys, its employees or agents in the ordinary course of their duties to Coys. 19. VALUE ADDED TAX VAT payable by the Buyer on the Hammer Price may be refundable by Customs and Excise on proof of export, but Coys makes no warranties in this regard. 20. PAYMENT OF SALE PROCEEDS 20.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing by both Coys and the Seller, the Buyer shall pay Coys forthwith and in any event no later than 35 days from the Auction the Purchase Price. 20.2. Coys shall pay the Net Sale Proceeds to the Seller not later than 35 days after the Auction, or within five working days after receiving cleared funds from the Buyer, whichever shall be the later. Coys shall be under no liability as a result of or arising out of any delay or failure by the Buyer in making payment. 20.3 Unless an alternative method of payment has been agreed by Coys in writing, payment of the Net Sale Proceeds shall be made by sending to the Seller a cheque drawn on Coys’ client account by first class post at the Seller’s risk. 20.4. Coys may in its discretion withhold remittance of the Net Sale Proceeds to the Seller until such time as the Seller has deposited with Coys the V5 registration document in the case of a UK registered vehicle or, in the case of an unregistered, or non-UK registered vehicle, the appropriate documents of title (ownership) relevant and appropriate to the country of registration of the vehicle, and any other documentation relating to the vehicle in the Seller’s possession or control which he agreed with Coys to supply. 21. BUYER’S DEFAULT 21.1 In the event that the Purchase Price is not duly paid in accordance with Condition 20.1, Coys may hold the Buyer in default and shall as against the Buyer (a “Defaulting Buyer”) have the following rights, in addition to those set out in Condition 21.4 below: (a) As agent for the Seller, to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 5% per annum above the Bank of England base rate on so much of the Purchase Price as remains due and unpaid; (b) To retain any Lot sold to the same Buyer at the same or any other Auction and to release it only after payment of the total amount due; (c) To reject or disregard any bid or bids made by or on behalf of the Defaulting Buyer at any future auction or to require payment of a deposit before any future bid made by or on behalf of that Buyer; (d) To apply any money due or to become due to the Defaulting Buyer in or towards settlement of the total amount due and to exercise a charge on any property of the Defaulting Buyer which is in Coys’ possession for any purpose. 21.2. If the Buyer continues to fail to make payment of the Purchase Price in full within 14 days of it falling due under Condition 20.1, Coys may (if so instructed by the Seller, or acting of its own motion in accordance with Condition 21.4 below) without prejudice to any other rights it may have, exercise one or more of the following additional remedies: (a) To institute proceedings against the Buyer in its own name, or in the name of the Seller for damages or specific performance for breach of the sale contract; (b) To institute proceedings against the Buyer in its own name in respect of the Buyer’s Premium
and any other sums that the Buyer shall be liable to pay Coys; (b) To cancel the sale of that or any other Lot sold to the Defaulting Buyer at the same or any other auction notwithstanding the total amount due in respect of such other Lot shall have been paid; (c) To re-sell the Lot or cause it to be resold by public auction or private sale. 21.3. If the Buyer fails or refuses to pay the Purchase Price in full within 35 days of the Auction, Coys will notify the Seller who may instruct Coys as to the appropriate course of action, including (where permitted under Clause 21.2) but not limited to one or more of the courses of action set out in Condition 21.4 below. Such notice will draw attention to the 14 day limit for the provision of instructions as set out in Condition 21.4 below. Coys shall if instructed take reasonable steps to assist the Seller but Coys shall be under no obligation to institute proceedings in its own name or personally incur any cost or expense. 21.4. In the absence of any written instructions from the Seller to Coys within 14 days of Coys’ notice to the Seller served in accordance with Condition 21.3 above then Coys shall in its sole discretion be entitled to do any of the following in its capacity as the Seller’s agent and with the Seller’s full authority:(a) To agree terms for the payment of the Purchase Price with the Buyer; (b) To remove, store and insure the Lot at the expense of the Buyer; (c) To settle claims and/or proceedings made by or against the Buyer on such terms as Coys shall at its absolute discretion think fit; (d) To take such steps as Coys shall at its absolute discretion consider necessary to collect the monies due from the Buyer; (e) Where appropriate to rescind and/or terminate the sale and in its sole discretion: (i) Return the Lot to the Seller, and distribute any monies received to the Buyer in accordance with Conditions 21.5 and/or 21.6; (ii) Offer the Lot for re-sale, by Auction or private treaty, with or without Reserve; (iii) Purchase the Lot itself at the Hammer Price or such other price as may be agreed with the Seller, in which case property in the Lot shall pass to Coys and Coys shall remit the Hammer Price to the Seller within fourteen days of its election less any sums payable pursuant to Condition 21.5 below; (f) To appoint a solicitor and/or other agent to pursue any of the courses of action referred to in sub-paragraphs (a) to (e) above and the Seller authorises Coys to take any of the courses referred to in this Condition 21.4, including the issue and prosecution of proceedings on the Seller’s behalf and in the Seller’s name. 21.5.

1956 Maserati 125 Turismo Lusso Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: XA5161A
Estimate: €8000 - €10,000
As in most countries after the war, car transport was for the wealthy few and motorcycle and scooter manufacturing companies sprung up all over the place. Ida Orsi wanted a piece of the action, and purchased Italmoto of Bologna. Ida then instructed the design department to come up with a whole new range of motorcycles, the first to be made being a successful two-stroke known as the L125 T2. This excellent example of the 125 Turismo has been restored and is now presented in concours condition. A lovely motorcycle from an iconic Italian marque.
1956 Vespa VL3T Struzzo Registration Number: EU registered Chassis Number: VL3T109763
Estimate: €5000 - €7500
1959 Vespa GS 150 Registration Number: EU registered Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €5000 - €7000
Finished in the classic combination of beige with a brown saddle, this stunning Vespa has been restored in 2010 to concours condition, and is described as being in excellent condition in all respects.
The original “sport” scooter of the 1950s, the Vespa GS 150 was introduced in 1955 and ushered in a new era of sophisticated touring scooters with elegant styling and track-proven, sporting motors. This 1959 example was lovingly restored by us back to its original glory. Said to run very well, this is an excellent example of a sporty Vespa.
1959 Piaggio Ape Calessino Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €7000 - €9000
The Ape is a pick-up truck and a moped dreirädiges of the Italian manufacturer Piaggio. The Ape has been manufactured since 1947 in Italy and since the introduction of the limited editions, 2007 in India. This Ape Calessino would be a welcome addition to any collection, or equally could be used for various ceremonies or business activities. We are informed the Ape runs very well, and is well presented, having been restored in 2010.

1962 Ducati Diana 250 Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €7000 - €9000
The first production Ducati 250 debuted at the Milan Fair in April 1961. It was called the Diana but for some unknown reason was renamed as Daytona in the UK. The 250 was so popular that in 1963 Ducati introduced the Diana Mark 3 Super Sport. This stunning concours condition example has been restored meticulously by its older enthusiast owner, and is now presented in excellent condition. A fabulous example of a classic Ducati motorcycle.
1954 MV Augusta MV175CSS Squalo Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €15000 - €18000
MV Agusta’s factory race team had been developing four-strokes for some years and in 1952 achieved its first major international success when Cecil Sandford secured the 125cc World Championship – MV’s first. For the following season, MV made available a single-cam, ‘customer’ version of Sandford’s works dohc racer, the Sport Competizione, which rapidly became the mount of choice among privateers contesting the quarter-litre class. In 1955 a second over-the-counter racer was added to the range: the 175 CSS. One of only 50 examples built, this beautiful motorcycle was restored by an MV Augusta engineer in Italy in the 1990s, and has since been kept in excellent condition in all respects. Interestingly it is fitted with Borrani aluminium rims. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1979 VW Beetle 1303S Cabriolet Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: 1592001017
Estimate: €14,000 - €17,000
One of the 20th Century’s truly great automobiles, the Volkswagen ‘Beetle’ spawned a host of derivatives, the longest enduring being the Cabriolet. A single prototype was built pre-war, but it was not until 1949 that production commenced, the bulk of which was entrusted to Karmann of Osnabruck whose four-seater Cabriolet appeared soon after the two-seater Hebmuller-built version. Only Karmann’s would stand the test of time, outliving the saloon and remaining ever fashionable, an instantly recognisable motoring icon to this day. Mechanical changes to the Cabriolet kept pace with those of the saloon until the latter’s production began to wind down in the early 1970s. This recently restored Volkswagen Beetle cabriolet has recently been professionally painted in its original colour, which we feel contrasts nicely with the black leather interior. Notably, the convertible roof was recently replaced; the new hood is said to fit very neatly. Showing a mere 85,000 recorded kilometres, according to the vendor the engine runs very nicely, and the transmission shifts very smoothly. Every collection should include an iconic Beetle; this is a good example of a very desirable variant, and we are sure will provide its new owner with the true “Beetle experience”.

1926 Amilcar Type G Convertible Registration Number: Italian registered
Chassis Number: 71292
Estimate: €40,000 - €50,000
The most famous model of all was the CGS “Grand Sport” of 1924; this featured a 1074 cc sv engine and four-wheel brakes. This in turn evolved into the more sporty CGSS “Grand Sport Surbaissé”. These models were built under license in Germany (as the Pluto) and in Austria (as the Grofri) and in Italy (as Amilcar Italiana). The marque entered automobile racing in the mid-1920s with a batch of supercharged dohc 1100 cc six-cylinder cars that used a roller bearing crankshaft in the full racing version; these vehicles were also available with plain bearings, driven by famous race driver André Morel. The Type G was first proposed by the House of Saint-Denis to replace the unfortunate Type L: the frame was identical, even in technical solutions. They then had a 4-speed gearbox and semi-elliptic leaf springs and shock absorbers on the two axes. Even the engine was the same 4-cylinder 1244 cm³ capable of delivering 27 hp of maximum power. Also identical performance: the top speed was between 100 and 110 km/h, depending on the type of body, which was offered in three variants, namely sedan, coupe and convertible, exactly as in the Type L. The difference was in the style of the car body, more squared and conventional. Evidently it was believed that the Type L did not work out the idea of the car body with rounded lines. This Amilcar type G is a cabriolet and comes to the sale with Italian documents and its original old French papers. This car has also its ASI certification and its operation and maintenance manual. The interior is still in its original state including the dashboard and hood. The coating of the bodywork is divided into two parts, from the rear to the windshield in a material called Weymann, the same used for the carriages. The front part made of alluminium has been restored. The car offers a great opportunity to buy a piece of history from the 20s. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Registration Number: EU taxes paid
Chassis Number: AR 159206
Estimate: €58,000- €65,000
With the introduction of the Bertone-styled Giulietta Sprint in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the ‘small car, big performance’ formula that would characterise the Milanese marque’s finest offerings from then on. Alfa’s classic twin-cam four was downsized to 1,290ccc for the 750-Series Giulietta, gaining an alloy cylinder block in the process. The Sprint coupé was soon joined by Berlina and Spider versions, the latter styled by Pininfarina and built on a slightly shorter wheelbase. The Giulietta family’s success surprised even Alfa themselves; production targets were revised upwards and to satisfy demands for increased performance, upgraded Veloce versions of the Sprint and Spider were introduced. The combination of a rev-happy engine, fine-handling, responsive chassis and excellent brakes make the Giulietta Sprint a driver’s car par excellence and explains why these stylish Alfa Romeos continue to attract the discerning enthusiast today. As confirmed from the Centro Documentazione Alfa Romeo, this Giulietta Sprint was produced on 27th June 1961 and sold on 28th June 1961 to Alfa Romeo of Lugano, Switzerland. The car was “ barn find” (pictures available) and totally restored in 2015. Equipped with Borrani wheels, this model must surely be one of the most beautiful Coupès of the 1950s, designed by the well known designer Bertone.

1959 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk1 Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: HBN7L12119
Estimate: â‚Ź40,000 - â‚Ź45,000
The enlargement of its C-Series six-cylinder engine to 2,912cc, and the adoption of Girling front disc brakes, differentiated the new-for-1959 Austin-Healey 3000 from the preceding 100/6. In 3000 form the rugged Austin six delivered 124bhp at 4,600rpm, good enough for a top speed (in overdrive) of 114mph. Otherwise, the car remained much as the 100/6, though the more-powerful disc brakes were a welcome improvement. The original 3000 was built from March 1959 to March 1961 as models BN7 Mark I (2-seater) and BT7 Mark I (2+2 version), becoming known as the Mark I after the Mark II was released.
Robust and tuneable, in its time the Big Healey was immensely popular with privateer racers and ralliers. Today, 40 years after the end of production, Healey 3000s continue to be extensively campaigned in historic motorsport, both in tarmac events and on the rough stuff.
Replicas of the works rally cars are among the most sought-after variants, and an extensive cottage industry of recognised specialists exists to cater for the demand for Austin-Healey parts, servicing and competition preparation. This beautiful Austin Healey 3000 MkI has recently been restored professionally, including the engine and gearbox, and is said to be in good condition in all respects. Finished in the classic combination of bright red with a grey interior, this is a lovely example of the quintessential British sports car.
1970 VW Porsche 914 Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: 4702907299
Estimate: €14,000 - €18,000
By the late 1960s, both Volkswagen and Porsche were in need of new models; Porsche was looking for a replacement for their entry-level 912, and Volkswagen wanted a new range-topping sports coupe to replace the Karmann Ghia. At the time, the majority of Volkswagen’s developmental work was handled by Porsche, part of a setup that dated back to Porsche’s founding; Volkswagen needed to contract out one last project to Porsche to fulfil the contract, and decided to make this that project. Ferdinand Piech who was in charge of research and development at Porsche, was put in charge of the 914 project. The Porsche 914 has always enjoyed a cult following in many countries, now receiving the publicity it deserved but never received when new, its charms remained known only to true enthusiasts. Those fortunate enough to experience the car in either its four or six cylinder guise have been amazed by the performance and handling afforded by its mid engined configuration. Porsche 914’s enjoyed a formidable reputation in motorsport, with a GT finishing ahead of all the 911S at Le Mans in 1970, and four and six cylinder cars proving both popular and successful in SCCA events for many years. Sold new in Holland on the 8th July 1970, this lovely example is finished in Grey Metallic with a contrasting black interior. Both the engine and transmission are described as being in good condition and supplied with Dutch registration documents. These little Porsche 914’s have escalated in value over the last few years; do not miss your chance to own this one before prices skyrocket.
2001 Aston Martin a Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: TBC
Estimate: €28,000 - €33,000
Although Victor Gauntlett had long mooted the idea, it took the arrival of Ford money and TWR Group know-how for a new generation, ‘small’ Aston Martin to become reality. Unveiled at the March 1993 Geneva Salon the DB7 had been subjected to more testing and development work than any of the marque’s previous models. The long awaited V12-engined DB7 Vantage was introduced at the Geneva Salon six years later. The styling had been transformed by its original designer, Ian Callum, and the chassis featured completely new front and rear suspension and more powerful Brembo brakes, and the model was available with either a six-speed close ratio manual gearbox or five-speed automatic unit with the jewel in the newcomer’s crown being the 6-litre 420bhp engine nestling under the bonnet - the first V12 unit ever to power a production Aston Martin. Most cars were offered with a 5 speed automatic gearbox, but this one of the very few delivered with the 6 speed manual gearbox. The combination of Vantage Volante specification, and manual gearbox, makes this car a very interesting Aston Martin for the discerned collector. Delivered new in Holland and with only two previous owners, this is a fine driving GT car which is also a promising investment for the future.
1988 Ferrari Testarossa Registration Number: VAT paid
Chassis Number: ZFFSG17AJ00763200
Estimate: €110,000 - €130,000
Ferrari’s flagship model, the Testarossa supercar, revived a famous name from the Italian company’s past when it arrived in 1984. A next generation Berlinetta Boxer, the Testarossa retained its predecessors amidships-mounted, 5.0-litre, flat-12 engine, which now boasted a maximum power output raised to 380bhp at 6,300rpm courtesy of four-valve cylinder heads. Despite the power increase, smoothness and driveability were enhanced, the car possessing excellent top gear flexibility allied to a maximum speed of 180mph. Rivalling Lamborghini’s Countach for presence, the Pininfarina-designed Testarossa succeeded brilliantly, the gill slats feeding air to its side-mounted radiators being one of the modern era’s most instantly recognisabl e – and widely copied – styling devices. A larger car than the 512BB – the increase in width being necessary to accommodate wider tyres – the Testarossa managed the trick of combining high downforce with a low coefficient of drag, its graceful body being notable for the absence of extraneous spoilers and other such devices. Despite the increase in size over the 512BB, the Testarossa was lighter than its predecessor, the body – its steel doors and roof excepted – being, somewhat unusually for a production Ferrari, of aluminium. Luxury touches in the well-equipped cabin included air conditioning, electrically adjustable seats, tilting steering wheel and plentiful leather. Unlike some of its rivals, the Testarossa possessed light controls and was relatively easy to drive, factors which, allied to its outstanding performance and stunning looks, contributed to an instant and sustained high level of demand.
Leaving the factory in 1988, this stunning matching numbers Testarossa has covered a mere 30,356 miles from new. Finished in the stunning combination of Bianco white with contrasting tan leather interior, this fabulous car is said to be in excellent condition in all respects. Offered with original service books, and many bills for maintenance, this is of one of the most iconic 1980s supercars and still turns as many heads today as it did when it was new. Truly Pininfarina at its best â€“ flamboyant yet futuristic - a true classic.
1929 Cadillac 341-A Fleetwood Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 327567
Estimate: €70,000 - €90,000 NO RESERVE
With the earliest model sold in 1903, Cadillac is second only to Ford as the oldest surviving make in America and quickly established itself as one of the foremost makers of high quality automobiles in the country, earning its “Standard of the World” advertising claim. By 1910, Cadillac had been absorbed into the General Motors conglomerate under William C.Durant and has remained the most prestigious name in the GM hierarchy ever since. Cadillac offered a V-8 model as early as 1915 and progressively refined the concept over the ensuing years, with a detachable cylinder head in 1918, balanced crankshaft in the V-63 of 1923 and further improvements on the Series 314, known as “The New Ninety Degree Cadillac”. In 1928 the dimensions of the V-8 were altered for the first time in years, taking total displacement up to 341cu in and horsepower was rated at 90. The L-head design used a cast iron block with a copper/aluminium crankcase, three main bearings and mechanical valve lifters. Only minor changes were made to the 1929 Cadillac, including synchromesh on second and top gears and Duplex mechanical brakes (on all four wheels) with internal shoes. Another welcome innovation was the introduction of safety glass across the range. Cadillac built just over 18,000 cars in 1929 and the 341 was available with an extraordinarily diverse range of bodywork from the two coachbuilders Fisher and Fleetwood, all using a 140 inch wheelbase, the longer 152 inch wheelbase being reserved for commercial models like ambulances and hearses. This Cadillac Fleetwood V8 on offer today is finished in an elegant forest green with complementary midnight black coachwork. The subject of a recent interior re-trim, this imposing V8 Cadillac boasts a period luggage rack and trunk. It’s wonderful and simplistic art deco style dashboards make being sat behind the wheel of this V8 beast very pleasant place to be. Do not miss an opportunity to acquire one of the highest quality pre-war automobiles.
1969 Porsche 911T Registration Number: TBC
Chassis Number: 119123058
Estimate: €45,000 - €55,000
‘The 911 is the best Porsche ever – all the vices of the old suspension have been eliminated and the modern offbeat styling should have a much broader appeal than the old bathtub shape. The overhead-cam, air-cooled flat 6-cylinder engine, the 5-speed all-synchro transmission, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are irresistible to anybody who ever felt a flicker of desire for any Porsche in the past,’ Car & Driver. The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. In 1967 the 911T (Touring) was introduced as a new base model, initially with the 2.0-litre engine in 110bhp form before gaining the 2.2-litre unit along with the rest of the range in 1969, by which time the 911’s wheelbase had been extended by 57mm to tame the sometimes wayward handling. Such was the 911’s success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them, a state of affairs that led to a substantial proportion being manufactured by coachbuilder Karmann at its Osnabrück factory. Registered in 1969, this lovely early 911T has recently been repainted in the brilliant period colour of Bahama Yellow, with a contrasting black interior.Mechanically, we have been informed any technical issues have been dealt with, notably the gearbox has been rebuilt, whilst the engine is said to perform strongly. Bills and receipts are available to support work completed on the car. This very attractive Porsche is a great buy for the Porsche enthusiast seeking a pretty yet highly useable early 911.
1999 Ferrari 456 M GTA Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFWPSOA8X0114626
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
The Pininfarina designed original 456 was available in GT and (from 1996) GTA forms. The difference in name signifies the transmission: the former has a six-speed manual and the latter has a four-speed automatic developed in partnership with FF Developments in Livonia, MI (which was later purchased by Ricardo Engineering in the UK). This was only the fourth automatic transmission ever offered by Ferrari. The 5.5 Litre V12 engine was derived from the Dino V6 rather than the more conventional V12s used in the 412 and Daytona. It produced 436 hp with 4 valves per cylinder and Bosch Motronic 2.7 engine management. The name 456 is derived from the fact that each cylinder displaces 456 cubic centimetres. This was the last Ferrari to use this naming convention. It is essentially a detuned version of the engine that appears in the 550 and 575. Despite its supercar performance, the 456 has a relatively unstressed engine, which has proven to be a very reliable unit. The chassis is a tubular steel spaceframe construction with a one-piece composite bonnet and body panels of aluminium. The body panels are welded to the chassis by using a special “sandwich filler” called feran that, when laid between, allows steel and aluminium to be welded. The Modificata 456M appeared in 1998, with many changes to improve aerodynamics and cooling, new front seats and other conveniences (fewer gauges on dash, and a new Becker stereo fitted in front of gear stick rather than behind as in the very shallow and special Sony head unit in the 456 GT). Approximately 3,289 of all versions were built worldwide. These consisted of the following versions: 456 GT (1,548), 456 GTA(403), 456M GT (688) and 456M GTA (650). This stunning Dutch registered example, in Giallo with black leather, is described as being in excellent condition in all respects. With only 25,750 miles recorded from new, this is a gorgeous, fast, modern, continent-crushing GT car.
1975 Alfa Romeo Montreal Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: 10564
Estimate: €40,000 - €45,000
The Alfa Romeo Montreal was designed by Bertone to an attempt of Alfa Romeo to create a competitive Grand Tourer. The V8 engine comes directly from the T33 Alfa Romeo Racing car and combined with the advanced Spica Injection engine. This would bring a real supercar sound and 0-60 at 7.6 seconds. The first production car was shown at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show, using a 2593 cc 90° dry-sump lubricated V8 engine with SPICA fuel injection that produced around 200 PS (147 kW; 197 hp), coupled to a five-speed ZF manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. Since the concept car was already unofficially known as The Montreal, Alfa Romeo kept the model name in production. Stylistically, the most eye catching feature is the car’s front end with four headlamps partly covered by unusual “grilles”, that retract when the lights are switched on. Another stylistic element is the NACA duct on the bonnet. The duct is actually blocked off since its purpose is not to draw air into the engine, but to optically hide the power bulge. The slats behind the doors contain the cabin vents, but apart from that only serve cosmetic purposes. The car reminds the lines of the Maserati Khamsin, the Ferrari 308/Gt4 and the Miura all masterpieces of the great Marcello Gandini. The Montreal was more expensive to buy than the Jaguar E-Type or the Porsche 911. . Finished in the classic Alfa combination of red with a tan interior, this classic example was delivered new in France, as such is presented in its unrestored and untouched condition, displaying a lovely patina. The recorded kilometres are presumed to be correct, and are commensurate with the overall condition of the car. This rare “babu Miura” could stand proud next to much more valuable supercars new and old.
1966 Saab 96 Monte Carlo 850 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 348101
Estimate: €17,000 - €20,000
The SAAB 96 Monte-Carlo 850 (MC850) was created in 1966 and 1967 to show homage to Erik Carlsson and Pat Moss for their victorious rallying circuits they won at the Monte Carlo rallies and the incredible press they provided to SAAB. The Saab 96 had a longitudinally mounted engine layout. As first designed, it had an 841 cc, 38 hp three-cylinder Saab two-stroke engine. By 1965 this was increased to 40 hp. An optional 57 hp version of the engine, with triple carburettors and oil injection, was used in the Sport and Monte Carlo models. The additional power was obtained from a modified cylinder head and filled crankshaft counterweights offering higher overall compression ratio. Manufactured on the 12th April 1966 this fine example was first registered in the UK on the 16th February 1970. The car is supplied with old UK V5 documents as well as a green logbook and owner’s manual along with an extensive file. The 841 cc two-stroke three cylinder engine with one Solex carburettor per cylinder, giving 52 hp, is reported to be in good condition. Finished in white with contrasting red wings and boot with a red cloth interior, this charming example boasts a full length sunroof and is a hoot to drive. It is rare to find such an example and a very interesting and a cost-effective entry for some of the best events in the classic car world.
1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Limousine by Barker Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 3BU110
Estimate: â‚Ź60,000 - â‚Ź70,000
Although the Rolls-Royce Phantom II was without doubt an outstanding automobile, by the early Thirties its six cylinder prowess was being challenged by multi-cylinder cars such as the V12 Hispano Suiza and V16 Cadillac. It was thus that Rolls-Royce introduced the all new Phantom III in late 1935. Visually, the model was distinguishable from the Phantom II in having its radiator mounted forward rather than above the front axle, but beneath, the differen ces were manifold.
At its heart was a superb new and complex, overhead valve V12 alloy engine, of 7,338cc, with cast-iron liners, seven main bearings, hydraulic tappets, triple pressure lubrication system and twin coil ignition. Technically advanced and highly refined, it produced 165bhp at 3,000rpm with such ample torque that it was hardly necessary to use the four speed gearbox. The new and immensely strong, box section chassis - with eight inch shorter wheelbase than the Phantom II and with built-in hydraulic jacks - also featured independent front suspension using coil springs immersed in an oil bath, while at the rear there were semi-elliptic leaf springs and an anti-roll bar. The combination provided an unequalled level of road-holding and ride comfort for such a large luxury car, once again putting Rolls-Royce ahead of its few competitors. Barker & Co ordered the chassis on 17 October 1936 (at the time of the London Motor Show) for their customer Norman McCallum (born 1872, died 8 March 1952). He lived at Braeriach, Vyner Road South, Bidston, in the county of Cheshire. He was a chartered ship broker, and this is the only Rolls-Royce he ever bought new.
Chassis 3BU110 was sent off to test at the Rolls-Royce Derby factory on 30th January 1937. It was fitted with engine number J18R, and according to the build sheets was suited for town work and touring and subsequently on the 8th February the chassis was sent to Barker & Co. The body built on the chassis was a limousine and included the optional, yet desirable division, rear luggage rack and even two occasional seats in the rear allowing for 7 passengers. It was Barker body number 7207, finished in black cellulose, with black leather to the front seat and fawn cloth to the rear compartment; the woodwork was in walnut. On 14th May 1937, the car was finished, and registered DUU 628. In 1953 the car was owned by a Mr A Steinberg, and on 15th June 1954 was traded in to Jack Barclay Ltd., for ÂŁ650. On the 8th September 1954 Jack Barclay Ltd. sold the car for ÂŁ575 to Parr & Son, of 33 Bedford Street, Belgrave Gate in the city of Leicester. In 1972 Rolls-Royce records the car as owned by a Mr A Griffiths of Middlesex. In the 1970s the Phantom III was sold to a French owner. This charming limousine is supplied with copies of build sheets and EU registration documents. A supremely rare and authentic motorcar in every way, this fine example if of one of Barkers best-loved limousine designs.
1960 Jaguar XK 150 Drophead Coupe Registration Number: EU Taxes paid
Estimate: NO RESERVE
The bleak years after 1945 were, not surprisingly, an era when great sports cars were somewhat thin on the ground; a shining exception was the mighty Jaguar XK series, yet another product of the flawless stylists eye (to say nothing of the astute business brain) of Sir William Lyons. Unarguably one of the most elegant sports cars of all time, the XK120 used the superb twin-cam six cylinder engine to provide- 120mph performance and acceleration to suit the most demanding tastes. The series evolved further with the XK140 and ended finally with the most refined of all the models, the XK150.
Under 10,000 of these cars were manufactured between 1957 and 1961 and the XK150 was the first to carry Dunlop disc brakes as standard following their lengthy development on Jaguar sports-racing cars. Launched in 1957, Jaguarâ€™s XK150 was the third and final iteration of XK range and considered by many to be the best driving model. This beautiful American market Jaguar was built on 13th January 1960 to its Miami Beach owners chosen specification to include automatic transmission, an exclusive option in its day, as only 72 were produced out of the estimated total production run of 586 DHC cars. Interestingly, this Jaguar was collected from the factory and delivered on Coventry plates (3850 DU) so the new owner, Mr Bisso we understand, could enjoy a European Summer jaunt before returning with the car to Florida.
Returning to Europe during the early 1970’s at the behest of an Italian Jaguar distributor who purchased the XK on behalf of his daughter, the car was to be seen on the roads around Milan for many years…..precise and meticulous maintenance was obviously handled by the family dealership. In more recent times this car has resided in the family’s private & outstanding 15 Jaguar car collection where it has enjoyed a pampered existence. Due to the sale of the family business and the subsequent dismantlement of their collection, this Jaguar is available for the first time in nearly 40 years. Now the car is under Greek registration (deleted for export but can be reregistered in Greece).
1961 Mercedes Benz 190SL Now eligible for the Mille Miglia Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 121040 – 10 – 016740
Estimate: €85,000 - €100,000
Stylistically evocative of the mighty 300SL, but with a slightly less complex drive train, the 190SL remains among the most desirable roadsters of its era. The prototype was first shown at the 1954 New York Auto Show, with the 190SL produced between May 1955 and February 1963.
The 190SL was sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300SL, similar not just in terms of styling, engineering and detailing, but also sharing fully independent suspension, double wishbone suspension at the front and swing axles at the rear. The 190 SL was powered by a new, slightly over square 1.9 litre straight-four SOHC engine that developed 120hp with twin-choke dual Solex carburettors, the four-cylinder engine block was based on the six-cylinder engine of the 300 SL. Teamed with a four-speed manual gearbox, this endowed the sleep aerodynamic and comparatively light 190SL that boasted a top speed of 115mph and a respectable 0-60 time of 13.0 seconds.
The eye catching 190 SL we have on offer here today is finished in Papyrus White with Sable Black leather upholstery. # 016740 has spent recent years as part of a private collection in Greece where it resided for many years, and consequently has only 67,000 journey miles displayed on the Odometer. This Mercedes has also benefitted from a recent engine re-fresh, making it a highly usable and practical classic sports car for the summer months.
1993 Porsche 964 Turbo Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ96ZNS470390
Estimate: €80,000 - €100,000
The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive as options. Porsche introduced the 964 Turbo model in March 1990 as the successor to the 930, choosing to adopt the well-proven 3.3 litre engine from the 930, with several minor revisions that made the engine smoother, less prone to turbo lag and more powerful. Finished in the rare and stunning shade of Amethyst metallic with a matching leather interior, this lovely original German car is offered with a good history file, original service books, and importantly, all relevant stickers in the closing panels of the car. In particular the engine and transmission are said to be in excellent condition. Offered with relevant books and a sensible mileage for this model, this 964 Turbos is a brilliant classic supercar which can be used every day.
1959 Triumph TR3 A Registration Number: EU taxes paid
Chassis Number: T558901L
Estimate: €22,000 - €28,000
Lacking a sports car capable of competing with those of MG and Jaguar, Triumph started developing a new sports car, the TR2, which it displayed proudly at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1953. An enormous success both at home and abroad, it was to be expected that its successor - the TR3 - would represent evolution rather than revolution. Introduced in October 1955, the TR3 was, indeed, little different from the preceding TR2. Changes to the 2.0-liter engine boosted power from 90 to 95bhp, but the most obvious difference was the adoption of an ‘egg box’ radiator grille. The engine developed 100bhp courtesy of a new cylinder head by mid-1956; then in August, Girling front disc brakes were introduced. The TR3A was introduced during 1957, with cosmetic changes including new front-end styling featuring a full-width grille incorporating sidelights/indicators, and locking door and trunk handles plus an improved interior. Today these charismatic Triumph sports cars remain popular for their usability, ease of maintenance, good looks and the fact that they are immense fun to drive. Offered here is wonderful example of the TR3A model. A left hand drive example, this Triumph was delivered new to the US. A comprehensive restoration was performed between 2013 and 2015. Finished in a classic and period ruby red, the car is elegantly fitted with silver painted wire-wheels. The interior is neatly appointed in black. Close examination of the car reveals a thorough restoration done with a good degree of skill and the car presents in excellent general condition. A strong running car with healthy appearance it has been owned by a European collector since 2013. Offered in ready to enjoy condition, this little TR3A should prove great fun over the coming summer months. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1974 BMW 3.0 CSi Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 4340282
Estimate: €28,000 - €33,000
With BMW looking to push the marque further upmarket, the combination of their bahn-storming six cylinder engine and a pretty but underpowered Coupé in its portfolio, it was almost inevitable that the two would get together. The resulting E9 Coupé is one of BMW’s best ever Coupés. British buyers had to wait until 1969 before they could sample the new car and shortly after, in 1971, the 3.0 CS made its debut with another 10bhp and more torque for better flexibility.
This year also saw the introduction of this car - the 3.0 CSI fuel injected version, and with more power it became BMW’s first 200bhp plus machine. It was always an expensive machine at some £6,000 when new in 1971 - that would have bought you a Porsche 911 of the period or even an entry-level Ferrari. In recent years, prices of its big brother, the legendary CSL have rapidly risen to a whole new league with the CSI’s tipped to follow.
Finished in metallic blue with a contrasting interior, and described as being in good condition in all respects, this BMW 3.0 CSi is a highly usable, practical, swift, stylish way to enjoy classic motoring. Further information is available. Please contact Coys auction department.
1957 Lancia Aurelia B20 GT Registration Number: CWA 530
Chassis Number: B20 S 1499
Estimate: €100,000 - €130,000
In the 1950s the Lancia Aurelia was hailed as a revolutionary combination of luxury and performance. The B20 GT two-passenger coupé was introduced in 1951, mechanically the same as the B10 model, but with a more powerful 2-litre engine. The car bristled with innovation: the first V6 production engine, a rear mounted transaxle, inboard rear brakes, and a monocoque body. It achieved major successes in competition worldwide, starting with a second place in the 1951 Mille Miglia in virtually standard form. The model went on to be developed over almost eight years and six distinct Series, and was bought by wealthy, discreet Italians (Lancias were expensive cars in their day). Today it is increasingly sought-after, as perhaps the 1950s GT. At the rear was an innovative combination transaxle with the gearbox, clutch, differential, and inboard-mounted drum brakes. The front suspension was a sliding pillar design, with rear semi-trailing arms replaced by a de Dion tube in the 4th series. The Aurelia was also one of the first cars to be fitted with radial tyres. With increased torque, vent windows, and typically a chrome strip down the bonnet, the more luxurious 6th series were the most touring-oriented of the B20s. Rolling off the Lancia production line on 10th March 1957, chassis 1499 was delivered new to Sweden, the first owner being Swedish dignitary Count Gilbert Hamilton. We are told the car has had a mere six owners from new. Lancias of this era are unsurpassed in terms of the quality of engineering and driving experience. Finished in the classic combination of white with a grey/blue interior, this lovely Aurelia GT can be used and enjoyed right away.
1960 Porsche 356B 1600S Cabriolet Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 154172
Estimate: €120,000 - €150,000
The 356 series was without doubt the model which catapulted the Porsche marque into world-wide contention in the hotly-contested sports car market. It put into practice Dr Porsche’s highly-evolved theories about ensuring traction through rear-mounted engines, as had been put into practice in some of his mighty pre-war racing designs, and subsequently some of the early Cisitalia racing cars. Another keynote was to keep everything as light as possible, so that all 356 bodywork variations always demonstrated the classic engineering principle of form following function, remaining sharp and purposeful.
This is a left-hand-drive example of the ever-popular Cabriolet, built in Stuttgart in1960 was originally delivered new to Intercontinental Motors of San Antonio, Texas and is now fully UK registered with EU taxes paid. This example is delightfully presented in its original colour scheme of Silver Metallic with a red hide interior with a contrasting black roof. Supplied with a UK V5 document, a current MoT certificate with no advisories valid until April 2016, a Certificate of Authenticity as well as correspondence from Porsche Club GB, this fine example looks stunning from every angle and appeals to buyers for its high build quality and stunning, sleek and aerodynamic looks. With prices still on the rise, this 356B would be a perfect starting point on which to base a Porsche collection, or serve as a fast and comfortable ride for continental touring, vintage rallies and club events.
1962 Austin Healey 3000 Mk2 Registration Number:
Chassis Number: H-BT7-L/17267
Estimate: €45,000 - €55,000
The enlargement of its C-Series six-cylinder engine to 2,912cc, and the adoption of Girling front disc brakes, differentiated the new-for-1959 Austin-Healey 3000 from the preceding 100/6. In 3000 form the rugged Austin six delivered 124bhp at 4,600rpm, good enough for a top speed (in overdrive) of 114mph. Otherwise, the car remained much as the 100/6, though the more-powerful disc brakes were a welcome improvement. The original 3000 was built from March 1959 to March 1961 as models BN7 Mark I (2-seater) and BT7 Mark I (2+2 version), becoming known as the Mark I after the Mark II was released. Robust and tuneable, in its time the Big Healey was immensely popular with privateer racers and ralliers. Today, forty years after production ceased, Healey 3000s continue to be extensively campaigned in historic motorsport, both in tarmac events and on the rough stuff. Replicas of the works rally cars are among the most sought-after variants, and an extensive cottage industry of recognised specialists exists to cater for the demand for Austin-Healey parts, servicing and competition preparation. Finished in Healey Ice Blue with a navy blue leather interior, this fabulous 3000 has enjoyed a highly detailed restoration, supported by a portfolio of documentation. Described as being in excellent condition in all respects, and offered with a title document and a thick file to support its restoration, this is a truly lovely example of one of Britain’s most successful sports cars. A real must for any serious collector.
1976 Porsche 911 3.0 Targa Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: 9116610286
Estimate: €50,000- 60,000
Porsche revived the Carrera name for its luxuriously equipped, top-of-the-range 911 in 1973. Designated Carrera RS, the newcomer was intended as a limited edition product for Group 4 GT racing, a class that required a minimum of 500 built. However, the resulting demand for this fabulous car proved so great that the production run was progressively extended, eventually ending up at 1,590 units and allowing homologation in Group 3 for standard GT production cars. Based on a lightened 911S platform, the Carrera RS featured revised suspension and wider rear wheels (beneath flared ‘arches) for improved handling, while the 2.7-litre, fuel-injected, air-cooled six-cylinder engine’s 210bhp boosted top speed to around 150mph. Not merely a styling gimmick, the Carrera’s trademark ‘duck’s tail’ spoiler made a vital contribution to high-speed stability, a virtue of increasing importance as power outputs continued to rise. The next major development saw the engine enlarged to 3.0 litres on the RSR racing version in 1974, this unit becoming standard on the road-going Carrera for 1976. Two years after the original coupé’s introduction in 1964, a convertible 911 - the ‘Targa’, named in honour of Porsche’s numerous victories in the Sicilian classic - became available. Expected US safety legislation had prompted an ingenious approach to the first soft-top 911, the Targa sporting a hefty roll-over bar to protect the occupants in the event of an inversion, together with removable roof and rear hood sections, which were stowable in the boot. An enormous success for the Stuttgart firm, the much loved and instantly recognisable Targa finally bowed out at end of the 1990s, when the Cabriolet became the sole open-topped 911 with the introduction of the Type 996 range for 1999. This beautiful 911 Carrera 3.0 Targa is finished in black with fabulous vipergreen Carrera Script. Only 479 of these special 3.0 litre Targas were built in 1976. Originally the Carrera 3.0 came with a 3.0 engine with approximately 200 horsepower. This Carrera however has a 3.6 engine with about 260 HP, the same as the 1976 911 Turbo. With this engine the car is superfast ! Approximatley €35,000, was spend on this car the last few years. A supercar to drive , and one of the lowest production number 911’s built. Fantastic 1970’s icon. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1952 Mercedes-Benz 220 A Cabriolet Registration Number: Swiss Registered
Chassis Number: 1870120563052 Estimate: €90,000 - €130,000
The Frankfurt Motor Show in the Spring of 1951 saw the return of Mercedes-Benz to their traditional place in the high quality market with the introduction of the 220 series. In line with the rest of the contemporary range of models, these cars featured six cylinder single overhead camshaft engines, valves being across, not in line with, the head. This unit produced 80bhp at a relaxed 4,600rpm, giving an impressive 90mph top speed. Roadworthiness was described by The Motor at the time as outstanding, all independent suspension giving a remarkably level ride on poor secondary roads, yet with good high speed cornering and precise steering. This car was not cheap however, the German price of £1,098 being inflated to £2,123 for the UK market.
This splendid cabriolet Mercedes comes to us straight from a Swiss car museum, where it has been on loan by a Swiss collector and is described as being in superb condition in all respects after a no expense spared restoration. Complete with the car is a Swiss VFFS expert evidence condition report, rating the condition to be a clear 1 as well as a clear A in its originality. German TÜV inspectors came to the same result in 2007 and gave the ‘green light’ to a German historic registration, since this time the car was practically unused and only displayed.
Finished in a light shade of cream - with a sumptuous burgundy leather interior, polished woodwork, a black hood in MercedesBenz double duck quality and excellent chrome work all round and sits on new white-wall tyres. Interested parties should note that without question, to bring a 220 A Cabriolet into this condition today would definitely cost far more than todayâ€™s estimate.This Mercedes is suitable for the true connoisseur of this rare Mercedes model and presents a unique opportunity- unrepeatable at the estimate given.

1948 Lancia Aprilia Cabriolet by Langenthal Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 539-1096
Estimate: €68,000 - €78,000
One of the most gifted automobile engineers of all time, Vincenzo Lancia did not live long enough to see his final creation enter production, although the exacting parameters he set out would shape what many consider to be the true ancestor of the modern motor car. Launched in 1937, two months after his death, the Aprilia set new standards in production car design. Produced between 1937 and 1949 the Lancia Aprilia was years ahead of its time. The first series was produced between 1937 and 1939 featuring a 1352cc engine with the second series being produced between 1939 and 1949 with an increased engine size of 1486cc. This stunning Lancia Aprilia was built by Swiss coachbuilder Langenthal and is a rare find indeed. The Langenthal Company was founded in 1888 and still exists, but has moved with the times. In 1931 the company began building its legendary cabriolets, which met the highest quality standards of that time. After WW II Lancia built 701 chassis of this type, which were supplied to various coach builders, Pininfarina being the best known. Chassis 539-1096 landed at the Langenthal Company, who transformed it into this majestic cabriolet. To the vendor’s knowledge, only three cabriolets of this type were assembled on this production line. As should be expected, this car was first supplied in Switzerland and remained there until recently. In 2013, the car found a new home in the Netherlands.
Finished in light blue with a matching blue leather interior and dark blue hood with contrasting cream wheels and chrome hub caps; the body and paint are described as being in excellent condition and the engine, chassis, interior and transmission are reported to be in good order. This car is a very much a sought after post-war classic. This charming 2 door, 4 seat Lancia offers practicality aswell as gorgeous styling and an ideal opportunity to experience the fun and astonishing quality of post war Lancia motoring.
1969 Ford BOSS 429 Mustang Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 9F02Z173034
Estimate: €250,000 - €275,000
In the late 1960s, facing stiff competition in NASCAR from Chrysler, Ford developed a new 429-cubic inch V-8 with all-new free-flowing cylinder heads, an aluminum high-rise intake manifold, a 735 CFM Holley carburetor, 11.0:1 compression, header-style exhaust manifolds, and a beefy four-bolt main block, conservatively rated at 375 horsepower. When dropped into the Mustang, it created the Boss 429, a pony car with abundant muscle. To handle the power, the stout “Toploader” four-speed manual transmission and a 3.91:1 Traction-Lok rear axle were mandatory options. Other features included an engine oil cooler, a trunk-mounted battery, a competition suspension with front and rear anti-roll bars, power front disc brakes, and wider F60x15 tires. The production process required numerous modifications to accommodate the new engine, including cutting and relocating the shock towers. To alleviate the in-house production burden, Ford had the cars sent to Kar Kraft, of Brighton, Michigan. The Boss 429 was the priciest non-Shelby Mustang to date, at $4,087, and it was available in very limited numbers, with fewer than 900 produced for the 1969 model year.
Rolling off production line in Dearborn in 1969, this is one of only 859 examples produced worldwide, and equipped with the improved 429ci engine, putting out a huge 500bhp. This matching numbers BOSS has enjoyed an extensive professional restoration, as result it is described as being in as new condition. Arguably one of the rarest and most desirable muscle cars you can buy, this is an excellent example of the ultimate incarnation of the classic Ford Mustang.
1927 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Pall Mall Tourer Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: S 286 RM
Estimate: €125,000 - €150,000 NO RESERVE
A direct descendent of the Silver Ghost, the Rolls-Royce Phantom I was launched in May 1925. It became immediately obvious that Rolls-Royce had gained quite a bit of knowledge in terms of refining the chassis. Sir Henry Royce felt that the Silver Ghost chassis was adequately robust. He was not easily persuaded that the company needed a new chassis. Instead, further improvements were made – in essence, a process of careful technical advancement – which reflected Royce’s belief in evolution rather than revolution. For the most part, the Phantom I chassis was identical to that of the Silver Ghost. It did offer customers two different wheelbase lengths from which to choose: 143.5 inches or the longer 150.5 inches. The Phantom I gearbox was also the same as before, except that the old cone clutch was replaced with a new, single dry plate clutch – more conducive to quieter and smoother operation.
Constructed on the sporting short chassis, the example offered here, chassis no. S 286 RM was delivered by RollsRoyce on May 4th, 1928 to Eldridge Johnson of Camden, New Jersey with Brewster Pall Mall Phaeton coachwork. He sold the car to E G Callison of Naples, Florida who then sold the Phantom to Dan ‘Hap’ Motlow of Nashville, Tennessee in 1976. Motlow had the Phantom extensively restored and then used it regularly on RROC rallies in the 1980s. Motlow’s collection was sold in August 1993, at which time S 286 RM was purchased for the Ivone Peitz Collection. Finished in black with contrasting ivory coach-line pin striping and hood accents, along with a tan Hartz cloth top, the Rolls-Royce appears as important and regal as it must have when new in 1927. The interior is trimmed in complementary black leather both front and rear with black carpets; the leather is in good condition overall with no signs of extreme wear. Instrumentation includes the ignition/light switch, ammeter, oil pressure and coolant temperature gauges alongside the speedo/odometer, and a Rolls-Royce eight day Chelsea dashboard clock. The car features a fold-out tonneau windscreen in the rear compartment, dual side-mount spares and a trunk luggage rack.
This most sporting Rolls-Royce has a charming patination that comes only through most careful use and care. Maintained by the collectionâ€™s private mechanic since purchase, this Phantom I is a motor car of extremely high quality. Having been on display in the Peitz Collectionâ€™s motor house and driven often, this Phantom I has been enjoyed through the years and is now ready to offer all of its wonderful attributes to a fortunate new owner.

1994 -- Porsche 964 Speedster Registration N Registration Number: umber: Dutch Registered
Chassis Chassis N Number: umber: WPOCB2960RS465163
Estimate: €150,000 Estimate: £ - €180,000
The Porsche 964 Speedster was introduced in October 1992, its Speedster bodyshape being first penned for the 356 model, primarily as a basic and cheap Porsche for the Californian market. With 4000 cars produced, it was a strong seller, with 80% of sales going to the US when new. The next Speedster model was introduced in 1989, when the 3.2 Carrera received the Speedster treatment, with 2000 cars produced in both standard and Turbo bodywork. In 1993, with the Porsche 964 model, the next generation Porsche Speedster was released. It was available either in standard or a lightweight trim named “Clubsport”. Again the US was the primary buyer, with 427 cars heading to the States.
The right-hand drive versions were rare, with only 14 cars having the steering wheel on the ‘proper’ side. Unlike the 1989 model, the 964 Speedster was based on the new Carrera 2 platform, designed to be a more focused driver’s car, and served as a hybrid between a 964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet and a 964 RS. While it featured a softer suspension setup than the 964 RS, like the Speedster of the 1950s it offered almost none of the comforts of a normal 964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet, with the exception of electric windows, air conditioning, and a radio cassette player. The 964 Speedster was designed to be a more focused “driver’s car” and served as a hybrid between a 964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet and a 964 RS. Porsche planned to build 3,000 examples of the 964 Speedsters in 1992, but only 936 examples were built and sold during the two years of production. Once again, the United States was the most important market with 427 Speedsters heading Stateside. Right hand drive versions were exceptionally rare, with only 14 cars having the steering wheel on the right hand side.
This beautiful 1994 model Speedster shows only 52,000km from new, with only 3 owners. The Speedster is finished in the stunning combination of black with a matching black leather interior. Pleasingly, this nice original matching numbers example is believed to still wear 95% of its original paint. Described as being in excellent condition in all respects, what a fantastic, fast, usable, modern classic sports car.
1960 Jaguar XK150 Drophead Coupe Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: S83886
Estimate: €100,000 – €120,000
At the heart of the William Lyons-styled XK120 roadster was Jaguar’s all-new 3,442cc, twin overhead camshaft, straight six engine producing 160bhp via twin SU carburettors - sufficient for 120mph and 0-60mph in 12 seconds. Fine road holding was ensured by the independent torsion bar/wishbone front suspension and semi-elliptic leaf-sprung rear axle, together with all-round drum brakes. Succeeding the XK120 was the XK140 launched at the 1954 London Show. Visually similar but with a reshaped radiator grille with fewer, larger slats and 2+2 seating, thanks to engine and bulkhead being three inches further forward, a change which also realised almost 50/50 weight distribution, it remained mechanically the same but with suspension improved from lessons learnt on the race track. And now with 190bhp on tap, top speed rose to 110mph - or 129mph with optional overdrive and 210bhp special equipment engine - while the 0-60mph sprint dropped to 11 seconds. The final rendition of the XK appeared in May 1957. Easily identifiable by its higher scuttle and door line, and much wider grille, the XK150 retained the mechanical layout of its predecessor; in 210bhp XK150 S form, however, it marked a Jaguar first in having all-round disc brakes, an asset with 0-60mph acceleration of 8.5 seconds and a 125mph maximum. For 1960, the penultimate year of production, the 3,781cc engine was fitted.
This charming example was manufactured on the 23rd May in the last year of production and is resplendent on chrome wire wheels and is finished in Carmen red with a black interior piped in red with wooden steering wheel. Having undergone a restoration it is described as being in wonderful condition. The 3.8 litre engine is the original unit and has been completely revised. Supplied with a Jaguar Heritage Certificate this iconic British sports car is as exciting to drive today as it was in the 1950s, and still turns heads.
1964 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 11304210003289
Estimate: €50,000 - €65,000
In March 1963 the 230SL made its debut at the Geneva Show, replacing the much acclaimed 190SL and 300SL models. Like its 190SL predecessor, its mechanical elements were derived from a contemporary saloon, in this instance the popular 220SE model. The 230SL’s 2.3-litre engine was an enlarged version of its fuel injected six cylinder overhead camshaft unit and there was the option of automatic or manual transmission. Suspension was all independent with a low pivot swing axle at the rear. Mercedes engineering integrity, together with elegance and practicality, made the pagoda top SL cars among the most distinctive designs of the era, in closed form offering handsome proportions and coupé-like comfort and with the hard top removed offering lively open-top performance. It is largely thanks to these attributes that they remain so universally popular today and command such a large market following. This Pagoda 230 SL is an early and very original model joining us from sunny south of France. It is a beautiful and matching numbers car with a modest 87,000 kilometres on its odometer. The bodywork is entirely rust free, with only two small welding areas on the underside. The car was repainted several years ago in its original colour of green (268); more recently a new soft top had been fitted and the car is also sold with its optional hard top. The interior is partly original and has been renewed only where necessary; for example, the carpeting is new. On the mechanical side, new shock absorbers, radiator and a new front windshield were fitted, and we are informed by the vendor that the car runs faultlessly. This 230 SL comes with historic German registration documents and new TÜV to July 2017; its handbook and further documentation, as well as the old French road papers, are also in the car’s file. A most pleasing Pagoda which provides a lot of fun, it represents a sure investment at a modest outlay, and as such is not to be missed.
1987 Porsche 911 Turbo - under 21,000 miles from new Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: WPOB0935HS050503
Estimate: €110,000 - €120,000
Beginning in the early 1970s, Porsche had demonstrated the worth of an exhaust-driven turbine for developing tremendous power for a given engine displacement, astounding the racing community with its World Endurance Championship-winning 917s. The company was quick to adapt turbocharging to its Group 4 Type 934 and Group 5 Type 935 racing coupes, basing those ferocious machines on the street-driven Type 930. Throughout the later 1970s and into the 1980s, the 930 evolved into an ever-more sophisticated, luxurious, and powerful road car. By 1987, the Turbo boasted a 3.3-liter engine, which was connected to a smooth four-speed manual transaxle and could produce 282 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 289 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm, The ventilated brake rotors were drilled for increased efficiency, and a large intercooler was housed within the “Tea-tray” rear spoiler. The 1987 930 Turbo, of which 1,695 were built for the U.S. market and another 786 for the “Rest of the World” (RoW), was capable of a near-160 mph top speed. Type 930. 282 bhp, 3,164 cc SOHC horizontally opposed air-cooled six-cylinder engine with a single turbocharger and Bosch electronic fuel injection, Type 930/36 four-speed manual transmission, independent front and rear suspension, and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. This stunning Turbo was specified from new in the rare and desirable combination of Cassis Red metallic with a Burgundy leather interior. When ordered from Porsche in 1987 it was specified with a leather sports steering wheel, locking differential, sports seats with electric height adjustment, and a factory sunroof. First registered via Metro Motors in Omaha, Nebraska, the Porsche passed onto its second owner in 2006, after a mere 17,811 miles. This fantastic car has recently returned to Europe, and shows just under 21,000 registered miles from new. The “Cassis Red Metallic” paint, a rare colour on any 911, is particularly attractive, changing very slightly in shade dependant on the light. We feel it offsets the somewhat aggressive nature of the 911 Turbo perfectly, especially when combined with the burgundy leather interior. If you combine the rare and desirable specification with the low mileage of this example, you have we feel a really appealing and desirable package. This fabulous Turbo is offered with all factory books and original sales invoice. A unique opportunity to acquire a low mileage 930 turbo. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1965 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 Series 1 Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: TBC
Estimate: €230,000 - €270,000
Replacing the 250 GTE 2+2 and the limited-production 330 America was the Ferrari 330 GT 2+2, which made its first public appearance at the Brussels Salon in January 1964. This new model helped carry on the success of the 2+2 models of the immediate past with several key updates, in hopes of seeing an increase in sales over the 250 GTE 2+2.
Ferrari’s new four-seater featured a completely new body style from Pininfarina, one that was very distinctive from the other Ferrari models on sale at the time. The easiest way to identify the first-series 330 GT 2+2 is by its quad headlight front end. The Series II cars adapted dual headlights, leaving the Series I as the sole model of the entire 330 GT 2+2 production run to wear quad headlights. Other notable cosmetic changes include more angular nose and tail sections from the 250 GTE 2+2 and the introduction of a wider front grille to help increase airflow to the engine. Following in the footsteps of the 330 America in terms of its drivetrain, the 330 GT 2+2 featured a four-liter V-12 engine, which was mated to the existing four-speed-plus overdrive transmission in the 250 GTE. Its wheelbase was increased by two inches, and with the installation of Koni adjustable shock absorbers, handling had improved immensely. Before production began on the redesigned Series II, Ferrari had produced 625 examples of the initial series. The 330 GT 2+2 remains one of Ferrari’s finest four-passenger touring cars. With its 300-horsepower, 4.0-litre engine, it is powerful yet easy to drive around town, while its luxurious appointments make it as ideal for today’s road tours and events as when it was new. As 330-series Ferraris become more desirable to collectors, the 330 GT 2+2 provides an opportunity into Ferrari ownership at a reasonable price. This beautiful example is finished in the stunning and rare combination of Oro Chiaro (Light Gold) Metallic, with a contrasting black leather interior. The Oro Chiaro paint in particular shows off the elegant lines of this Series 1 example exceptionally well. Delivered new to Spain, where this lovely 330 has spent most of its life, the car is described by our vendor as being in excellent condition in all respects. A hugely stylish, and understated classic GT car of the 1960s, with great investment potential for the future.
1936 BMW 328 Roadster Registration Number: German historic registration
Chassis Number: 69850 ( see text )
Estimate: €290,000 - €330,000
The 328 was introduced in 1936, and was immediately noted for the semi streamlined bodywork, which was years ahead if its time, the Jaguar XK 120 of 1948 being the first quantity produced car to emulate its appearance. Despite being very fully equipped, the car only weighed 13.75 cwt., and handled exceptionally well, with a top speed of almost 100 m.p.h. in standard form, and acceleration from 0-60 m.p.h. in 9.5 seconds; power output was 80 b.h.p. at 4760 r.p.m.
Main Image of Similar Car In 1937 Sammy Davis drove a fully equipped but slightly tuned example for one hour at Brooklands and covered 102.2 miles, a truly remarkable feat by an unsupercharged 2 litre car running on pump fuel, in the days when many sports cars with much larger engines could not equal, never mind better, such a performance. The 328 soon made its mark in competitions of all kinds - racing, hill-climbs and rallies - tuned cars being capable of 120 m.p.h. Particularly noteworthy were an overall win in the 1940 Mille Miglia and 2nd on Index and 5th overall at Le Mans in 1939, only beaten by bigger Bugatti, Delage and Lagonda cars. This wonderful BMW 328 Roadster was rebuilt within the last 5 years using a chassis from a 1936 BMW 315, which is identical to the 328 chassis. The only difference is the numeration. It is supplied with original 328 front and rear axles which were both completely overhauled, as were the springs and the braking system. It also has overhauled wheels and master cylinders, brake pads, brake drums and brake pipes.
The engine is a BMW unit with a Bristol cylinder head, which equally was rebuilt completely with new bearings, new pistons new tappets, valve guides, carburettors and new clutch. The Volvo 4 â€“ speed gearbox has been overhauled too and received a new propshaft. The wheels were overhauled and 4 new tyres were fitted. A new radiator and petrol tank were manufactured. The bodywork has been manufactured to original specification by a well known specialist, as was the paintwork ( original BMW 328 colour : cherry red ), trim, etc.
The whole car is described by its vendor, who is a life longÂ BMW 328 collector (which Coys have had the pleasure to sell several cars from his collection already ) and has been rebuilt to 100 % true original specification, with the exception of a 12 V electrical system, which in todayâ€™s traffic surely is the good option. Still to be run in, the engine should have an oil exchange after 1000 kms and the cylinder head screws will need the usual adjustment. Only due to the enormous equipment supply of this life long BMW enthusiast, was such a rebuild possible and is definitely unrepeatable. This fantastic example is offered at a fraction of the cost of a genuine BMW 328 of the same era, this must be viewed to be appreciated. Not to be missed.
1984 Porsche 930 Turbo Flatnose Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ93ZES000740
Estimate: €70,000 - €90,000
What set the 911 Turbo apart from its peers was the relaxed way this stupefying performance was delivered. Comparing the Turbo to similarly quick ‘he-man’ cars, such as the Holman & Moody-tuned Cobra 427 and the Ford GT40, Motor’s Roger Bell reckoned what made the Porsche so different was that it “hurls you forward with similar velocity but in an uncannily quiet and effortless way. To be shoved so hard in the back that you need high-back seats to keep you’re head on, yet neither to feel nor hear anything more than a muffled hum, is a very odd sensation indeed in a car.” The Turbo’s characteristic flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler had already been seen on the Carrera model, while the interior was the most luxurious yet in a 911, featuring leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. For 1978, the Turbo’s engine was enlarged to 3.3 litres, gaining an inter-cooler in the process; power increased to 300bhp and the top speed of what was the fastest-accelerating road car of its day went up to 160mph. This 1984 Porsche 930 Flatnose is offered in very good condition. The car boasts new black paint work and a new clutch. The 3299 cc 6 cylinder boxer engine has been fully checked and we are informed is in very good condition and we are informed has covered a provable 73,600 miles. The car has Fuchs wheels, electric sun roof and electric adjustable front seats. Visually and technically in very good condition, this 930 Turbo will no doubt continue to thrill and excite. Supplied with EU taxes paid documents the experience at the wheel of this beast will provide the closest thing to a time machine, taking you back to an era when electric nannies like stability control were barely wisps in the burnt rubber emanating from this Turbo’s massive rear tyres. The Flachbau is a model currently very much in vogue for the automotive collector - offered with a highly realistic reserve and provides a unique chance to become a member of a very rare and beautiful 1980s supercar club!
1952 Mercedes-Benz 300 Adenauer Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 1860110183352 Estimate: €65,000 - €100,000
This Mercedes Benz 300 Limousine, widely known and affectionately nicknamed after Germany’s first chancellor Konrad Adenauer, who used the model as his official government car, comes to us straight from a car museum where it has been displayed on loan from the long term owner and is reported to be in superb condition throughout.
The paint, chrome and interior - including the decorative woodwork - are all in excellent condition and the car furthermore has a drinks compartment in the rear. The details in its interior are truly stunning down to the newspaper nets at the back of the front seats and the flower vase on the dashboard and the period radio.
Finished in elegant black livery with grey cloth interior - as originally supplied - this is an important collectors item and rarely seen in such condition, suitable for any collection of the great Mercedes Benz marque and is supplied with German historic paperwork.
1951 Peugeot 203 Break “Hotel Sporting Taxi” Registration Number: EU taxes paid
Chassis Number: 1403051
Estimate: €15,000 - €20,000
Formerly producers of tools, coffee mills, umbrella spikes and corsetry, Peugeot commenced its long-standing connection with transport in 1885 when it added cycle manufacture to its portfolio. The second oldest motor manufacturer in the world, the company commenced car production in 1889 with a steam-powered tri-car but soon abandoned steam in favour of the internal combustion engine, building a succession of ever larger automobiles before introducing the first of its famous Bébé light cars in 1900. There were two separate firms run by competing members of the Peugeot family up to 1910, when Lion Peugeot merged with the main concern. Between the wars Peugeot concentrated on making solid, well engineered cars, which was just what those difficult times required, and continued in that vein after WW2. Produced from 1948 to 1960, the Peugeot 203 was not offered for sale in the UK until 1954. Its relatively high price in the UK restricted sales, but the car was a familiar sight to British tourists in France where fleets of 203s saw service with the French police. The 203 was powered by a 1,290cc four-cylinder engine of advanced design - incorporating oversquare dimensions, overhead valves, hemispherical combustion chambers and wet cylinder liners - that produced 42bhp and drove via a four-speed gearbox with column change. Solidly constructed and possessing exemplary reliability, the tough 203 proved durable enough to win the 1953 Redex 6,500-Mile Trial in Australia and take class wins in the Safari Rally in 1954 and 59. We are pleased to be offering this lovely 203 Break which was used as a taxi at the Hotel Sporting in Rimini. The car underwent a restoration in 2014 at a cost of €24,000 and comes to the sale with Italian registration papers.
1965 Lotus Cortina Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: BA74FT/54434
Estimate: €35,000 - €45,000
Ford were looking to race the MkI Cortina in the Group 2 category, for which 1,000 `homologation specials’ would be required. The obvious powerplant was the twin-cam version of the ubiquitous Ford `Kent’ engine that Lotus genius Colin Chapman had already developed for use in the Elan. A deal was struck and the Lotus Cortina was born in 1963. The car was based on the two-door Cortina. In addition to the 105bhp 1558cc twin-cam engine, the changes included: a close-ratio gearbox, shorter front suspension struts, and trailing arms and coil springs with `A’ bracket at the rear.
Wider 5.5J steel wheels were added and lightweight aluminium panels were used for the doors, bonnet and boot. The cars also received front quarter bumpers, Lotus badges on the rear wings and right side of the radiator grill. Interior amendments included: a new centre-console to house the remote control gear lever, different seats and fascia, and a wood-rim steering wheel. All factory cars were finished in white with green side stripes. The MKI model was made until 1966, during which time the troublesome `A’ bracket rear suspension was replaced with leaf springs and radius arms. Homologation was granted in September `63 and the following season Jim Clark won the British Saloon Car Championship in one and countless other laurels were accumulated in both racing and rallying. This well sorted Lotus Cortina has benefitted from an extensive restoration to rally/race specification, and is described by our vendor as being in excellent condition in all respects. What better way to enjoy classic motorsport than in the sporting saloon car of the 1960s?
1957 Chevrolet Corvette C1 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: E575106183
Estimate: €80,000 - €90,000
After World War II, GIs returning after serving overseas in the years were bringing home MGs, Jaguars, Alfa Romeos, and the like. In 1951, Nash Motors began selling an expensive two-seat sports car, the Nash-Healey, made in partnership with the Italian designer Pinin Farina and British auto engineer Donald Healey, but there were few moderate-priced models. Harley Earl convinced GM that they needed to build a two-seat sports car, and with his Special Projects crew began working on “Project Opel” in late 1951. The result was the hand-built, EX-122 pre-production Corvette prototype, which was first shown to the public at the 1953 General Motors Motorama at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City on January 17, 1953. With the release of the 1957 model, Chevrolet was really getting into its stride. A new body, a much better convertible top and glass wind-up windows, together with the single headlamp styling and the cove-side design, really brought the Corvette right up to date. This matching numbers example was first registered in 1957, with the optional 283ci engine, also options 101 (heater), 102 (AM radio), 209 (white-wall tyres), 303 (manual transmission), and 440 (two-tone paint). The upgraded 283ci engine benefited from 2 x four barrel Carter WCFB carburettors, also a hi-lift camshaft, helping it to produce a heady 270 bhp. The car was imported into the Netherlands in 1997, where it enjoyed much restoration work. We have been informed that both the paint and the chrome are in good condition, and the interior has been revitalised to leave it in impeccable condition. The seats in particular look virtually brand new, as do the carpets. Pleasingly the dash does not suffer from the usual sun damage of American convertible cars of this era. This stunning 1950s sports car starts right away every time, and both runs and idles well, with no smoke when starting or driving the car. The 283ci motor offers plenty of power and is very fast for a car of this era.
Finished in the classic two-tone combination of â€œVenetian Redâ€?/White with a matching red and white interior, and white convertible top, this lovely example is said to be a real pleasure to drive, especially with the roof down on a warm day. A lovely example of the first real American sports car.
1983 Ferrari 400i - First owner King Hussein of Jordan Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: 46653
Estimate: €60,000 - €70,000
The Ferrari 365 GT4 2+2, 400 and 412 (Tipo F101) are front-engined V12 2+2 grand tourers made by Ferrari between 1972 and 1989. The three cars are closely related, using the same body, chassis and engine evolved over time. After Ferrari’s custom their numeric names refer to the engines’ single cylinder displacement expressed in cubic centimetres, and therefore changed with each update to reflect the increasing displacement. The 365 GT4 2+2 was introduced in 1972 to replace the 365 GTC/4. It then evolved into the 400, the first Ferrari equipped with automatic transmission.
In 1979 the 400 was replaced by the fuel injected 400i. Finally, the improved 412 was introduced in 1985 and phased out in 1989, bringing to an end Ferrari’s longest ever production series. Differences between the 400 and 400i were limited to the fuel injected engine and an “i” badge on the tail. Towards the end of 1982 the 400i was updated. New camshaft profiles and exhaust headers raised engine power to 315 PS (232 kW). The interior was significantly revised, gaining differently upholstery, door panels, centre console and new electronic switchgear.
On the exterior a narrower grille left the rectangular fog-lights exposed; and the venting on the engine bonnet was changed from silver to body-colour. New, more elegant wing mirrors were fitted, bearing a small Ferrari shield. Around the back the tail panel was body-coloured instead of matte black, and foglamps were fitted in the bumper. Lower profile Michelin TRX tyres were adopted, on metric sized wheels. A total of 1305 examples were produced, 883 Automatics and 422 GTs. This lovely low mileage example was shipped from new to the Middle East, where King Hussein of Jordan, the carâ€™s first owner, enjoyed his 400i for a number of years.
Described as being in excellent condition in all respects, this Ferrari has clearly been cared for by its owners, and used sparingly. This stunning GT car is offered with full history and invoices for work completed. A great example of a fast appreciating classic Ferrari and one with impeccable provenance.
1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe Deluxe Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €68,000 - €78,000
1941 was the last full model year before civilian automobile production ended “for the duration” as America’s manufacturing capacity yielded to the war effort. The Fisher bodied 62 series for 1941 featured a low, aggressive body that Harley Earl and Bill Mitchell dressed with three chrome strips on the front and rear fenders to complement the massive grill and hood side chrome trim. The 1941 car also featured a panel louver trim on each side of the hood, headlights built into the fenders and standard rear wheel skirts. The new styling was clean and elegant. It was also equipped with a power operated top which made use of a series of vacuum operated cylinders. A major improvement over the hand operated tops. The most desirable of the 1941 series 62 are of course the convertible coupes and only a few remain of the 3,100 produced.
This car was built by Cadillac Motor Car Division in Detroit (Michigan) in May 1941 and on 23rd June it was delivered to dealers Chaplin Motor Co, Portland, Maine. The current owner purchased the car in Georgia, USA in 2009 from a private collection who had owned the car since 2008 when it was freshly restored by the owner before him who in turn bought the car from the first owner in one of the Southern States. The car has undergone a complete “nut and bolt” restoration and is described by the vendor to be in excellent condition with a photographic record of the work carried out. It is finished in the striking ‘Valcour Maroon’ with a maroon leather interior, carpets and an as new maroon soft top. Power is via a 346cid (5.7) V8 engine with L-head design producing 150bhp; known for its durability feeding through a 3 speed all synchromesh gearbox.
The car is fitted with steel wheels, radial white wall tires, rear spats with a Cadillac crest in the centre of each. Interior appointments include dash clock and radio and the all important jack and tools are located in the trunk. This is one of the truly iconic cars of its era; classy, sporty and comfortable, an ideal touring car; put down the power top and enjoy its proven reliability and impressive performance. A rare, beautifully restored and presented piece of Americana, it is more than ready to be enjoyed and impress at classic car events.
1926 Fiat 509A Tourer Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 239 477
Estimate: €20,000 -€26,000
The first FIAT (FIAT being an acronym for Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino), was rolled out from the factory sometime in 1901. The management of FIAT then approached Faccioli to develop a front-engined vehicle. After many try outs using four and six cylinder models, FIAT was ready to reveal its first mass-produced car; the 1912 ‘Tipo Zero’. Post WW1 would bring Fiat much sales-figures related merriment - the 501 Carlo Cavalli designed model was introduced in 1919 and over 45,000 units were built by 1926. After experimenting with some luxurious, big engined motor cars, the Fiat 507 was introduced in 1926 at the same time as the smaller engined Fiat 503. It was based on the 505 model but with some technical modifications that included an upgraded suspension and brakes.
The 507 was available as a four-door sedan and a cabriolet which shared the same torpedo-type body but the car was pulled from the market in 1927 after 3,700 models had been made, and replaced by the Fiat 520. Fiat then resumed development of its highly popular mass market models resulting in the 509; a light-weight vehicle that exceeded every previous FIAT sales record; by 1929, FIAT had sold more than 90,000 ‘509’ cars. This pretty 4 seat open tourer was built in 1926 and we are informed it runs sweetly as does the transmission. The engine is an OHC design of just under 1 litre with Marelli magneto and Zenith carburetors. The leather interior is described as being excellent as are the sprung seats. The dashboard has had an oil pressure gauge, clock and ammeter added for peace of mind. There is of course a self starter and the horn emits an oooog-ha!!
The body and frame have no issues and the paint still looks great and is again an older finish. 4 Wheel brakes are rod operated and can pull up safely and feel reassuring. The hood uses 2 tone mohair and has a beautiful bevel edged oval rear window with 6 newly made and covered side windows with new screens fitted. These are stored in 2 matching bags behind the rear seat.
The vendor reports that the car has proved to be totally reliable and draws a lot of interest as one would expect. Supplied with its original UK registration number GF 6762; this is a charming Italian tourer.
1973 Porsche 911 2.4S Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 911330676
Estimate: €155,000 - €185,000
The first of many high-performance versions of the newly introduced 911 arrived in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoke alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp, the increased urge raising top speed by 10mph to 135mph. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911’s handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements. By this time, the 911 models had established itself as one of Europe’s most refined and enjoyable sports cars for the road, and also as a serious weapon on the racetrack in production-based formulae. To have a Porsche 911 as a road car made a statement - you knew about the best things in life. Just take the king of cool for instance; in the opening scenes of the cult movie Le Mans, Steve McQueen is seen charging around French country roads in a 911S - the glorious sound of its flat-six and virtually open fuel injection intakes are remembered by most who have seen the movie. It’s perhaps no surprise that McQueen kept one for his own personal use long after filming was over.
Originally delivered new to Portugal, this stunning 2.4S is finished in its original colour scheme of blue and has a contrasting black interior. Fitted with additional driver’s lights and fitted with a sunroof this car looks striking from every angle. This matching numbers example is described by the vendor as being in excellent condition in every respect. Most discerning investors should note that this is an original European car and not an American import. These highly sought after German sports cars of this model are rare to find and still provide the discerning owner and exciting drive.
1971 Fiat 500 Registration Number: Italian registered
Chassis Number: 3003188
Estimate: €8,000 - €12,000
Replacement for FIAT’s much-loved 500 ‘Topolino’, the Nuova 500 debuted in 1957. A radical departure from its predecessor’s essentially pre-war design, FIAT’s new baby featured unitary construction, a full-length opening fabric roof and all-independent suspension while carrying its engine at the rear. The 479cc power unit was an air-cooled overheadvalve twin, the first such used by FIAT, and the gearbox a four-speeder. The basic 500’s austerity was not well received, prompting the introduction of a revised and better equipped version endowed with refinements such as wind-down windows, upholstered rear seat, column-mounted switchgear stalks and hub caps for the wheels. Introduced in 1960, the 500D used the 499.5cc engine of the 500 Sport in de-tuned form, but nevertheless brought with it a small gain in horsepower. The penultimate model, the L, had a much modernized interior (including a renewed dashboard) which brought the Fiat 500 up to date. Greater comfort and style were provided in this new model for the new generation. This Fiat 500, finished in lovely “Aragosta” with a contrasting black interior is in good condition throughout with the exhaust recently substituted in November 2015. This cheeky little car comes to the sale with its Italian registration and a fantastic opportunity to enjoy open top motoring at a realistic price in a very stylish car.
1937 Morris Twelve Four Pre-Series Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 35TW8416
Estimate: €15,000 – €20,000
The Morris Twelve Four appeared in the Autumn of 1934. The Twelve shared much with Morris’s 1292cc Ten Four and 1378cc Ten Six using the Ten Four gearbox and ratios but with wider wheels and larger section tyres than either of the smaller-engined cars and it used, with modifications, the wheelbase of the Ten Six. Lockheed hydraulic brakes were fitted on all four wheels, the handbrake on the rear wheels using a mechanical linkage. Suspension was by long semi-elliptic springs at front and rear with Armstrong hydraulic shock absorbers with steering by Bishop cam. This 12/4 was approved in September 1934 with the body having the slightly elevated structure. This car has the original 4-cylinder engine with 1548cc displacement with a carburettor; the engine makes something in the region of 35-38 hp. Restored in England, it is reported to be in good condition throughout. The 12-4 has then already the typical Morris advantages: 4-speed gearbox and a 12 volt system, further hydraulic brakes and for the time a “modern” chassis. It’s a fun car to drive and in 2012 new front springs were fitted, along with new tyres and the front wheels overhauled. The brakes were completely resurfaced with new lines and a new brake master cylinder, also, new ignition cables were fitted along with a renewed harness. A charming and delightful pre- war motor car; finished in blue and black with a matching blue interior.
1935 Lincoln K Model V12 544 Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 3965
Estimate: €20,000 - €30,000 NO RESERVE The Lincoln K-Series was a luxury vehicle produced by Lincoln from 1930 to 1940. While the original K-Series featured a 6.3 L V8, but as multi cylinder engines became obligatory for luxury cars, a V12 became standard in 1933. As was usual at the time, there was a huge choice of 18 custom and standard Model K body styles. However, the Lincoln line was greatly trimmed for 1935, with all cars simply called Model K. Lincoln vehicles were aimed at the wealthy and always had been, but during the Great Depression, everyone suffered hugely, and the numbers of the rich were naturally greatly reduced. Financial backing from the mighty Ford Motor Company helped them through this difficult time and Henry Fords heir, Edsel Ford, was hugely proud of Lincoln and put a vast amount of effort into the vehicles and was a big supporter. Their powerful engines and elegant and well appointed bodies were truly impressive. An improvement that was introduced in the model year of 1935, was that Lincoln moved the rear seats forward so as to hugely improve the ride quality. This fine example still has its original effortless 150 horsepower 414ci V12 engine and three-speed manual gearbox. As one of 278 ever built, this is a very rare car, and is made ever more special by its history at the Classic Car Club of Americas Concours De Elegance. This event was held in Oakbrook Il., in the summer of 1997. We are informed that the car was a frame off restoration and it still shows today. For this event it was described as a wonderful show car, as well as having great mechanics that allowed it to travel comfortably at freeway speeds of 55/60 MPH. For the most part since, it has been part of a loved collection and has been used intermittently as a hobby car. From new, this would have been one of the finest motor cars in the world when it was produced and was driven by only the most wealthy and influential throughout the world. Even today; this imposing car still represents a huge statement to the world. The notable build quality of this splendid vehicle has stood the test of time remarkably well, and finished in glossy black with comfortable cloth interior, featuring a real art-deco style dashboard. It will be a fantastic acquisition to anyone who admires pre-war cars; while the odometer reading of 46,239miles cannot be warranted, it is certainly credible in the context of the cars condition.
1974 Citroen SM Registration Number: WHJ589M
Chassis Number: 0059 009503
Estimate: €25,000 - €30,000
Following its launch at the 1970 Geneva Show, the SM was praised for its power and its chassis, with its road holding benefiting from the engine’s positioning behind the front axle line. In 1972 the carburettors were replaced by Bosch fuel injection, raising output to 178bhp at 6,250rpm and 172lb.ft at 4,000rpm; the following year its engine capacity was increased to 2,965cc - using the same V6 that was to power Maserati’s new Merak – with its output rising again to 190bhp at 5,750rpm and 181lb.ft at 4,000rpm although performance remained much the same to the original car. It was at this time that automatic transmission became optional. The expensive SM, however, proved something of an anomaly: too fast for Citroen’s traditional customers but too quirky for traditional Maserati owners. As a result, when production ceased in 1975, only 12,024 had been built and this fastest and most striking of all Citroens is now very collectable. The SM on offer today is a lovely unadulterated example of the Citroen-Maserati partnership. Complete with full English paperwork the car presents itself as a strong investment. Maintaining its original charm, poise and quirkiness and is bound to be a head-turner wherever it goes and with the Maserati V6 in full song it is a sound to behold. This car presents itself as great investment which can be driven with gusto on the open road.
1986 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: SCAZD42A2GCX14219
Estimate: : €75,000 - €85,000
The arrival of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and Bentley T series in late 1965 marked a major change in Rolls-Royce motor cars; previously the products of Crewe had employed a separate chassis but here was a car using, for the first time in RR history, unitary construction of chassis and body. This change, brought about by modernised production methods and the demise of the old coachbuilding companies inevitably decreed more uniform coachwork compared to the elegant individual designs that had gone before - but underneath the skin the new Rolls-Royce and Bentley offered even greater engineering excellence and sophistication. At the Silver Shadow’s heart was Rolls-Royce’s familiar alloy V8 engine retaining the same 6,230cc as in the Silver Cloud III/S3 and a power output of around 220bhp. It was in the chassis, however, that important changes were made, most notably all-round independent suspension, including a sophisticated engine pump-driven self-levelling system, and disc brakes. The year after the Silver Shadow’s launch a two door coupe with coachwork by Mulliner Park Ward joined the line-up followed in 1968 by a similarly-styled drophead coupé. For 1969 all models had their interiors modified, while the following year engine capacity was increased to 6,750cc. Two years later, in 1971, the two door coupé and drophead models were renamed Corniche, simultaneously receiving a 10% power increase over the four door Silver Shadow that increased top speed to 120mph and dropped the 0-60mph acceleration to 9.6 seconds, startling figures for the time. In 1972 the suspension was completely redesigned for the fitting of radial tyres, greatly enhancing the handling. This is left hand drive example, originally delivered new in Southern California, and was exported to the Netherlands in 2009. In 2011 the car underwent a body off restoration totalling €52,000 and as such the paint, interior, body and chassis are all described as being in excellent condition and finished in dark blue with a contrasting sand interior. In its day there was simply no more luxurious and flamboyant way to go top-down motoring - and indeed very few contemporary cars can match the Corniche for sheer style and comfort today.
1958 Mercedes-Benz 300 ‘Adenauer’ Saloon Registration Number: EU taxes paid
Chassis Number: 1890108501107
Estimate: €55,000 - €75,000
The 300’s cross-braced, oval-tube chassis followed the lines of the 170S and 220, with independent suspension all round and four-wheel drum brakes, but incorporated the added refinements of hypoid bevel final drive, dynamically balanced wheels and remote electrical control of the rear suspension ride height. Initially developing 115bhp, the 3.0-litre, overhead-camshaft, six-cylinder engine - used in fuel-injected form in the 300SL sports car - was boosted in power for the succeeding 300b and 300c models, finally gaining fuel injection in the re-styled 300d of 1957. Other improvements along the way included larger brakes (with servo-assistance from 1954), optional power steering (on the 300d) and the adoption of three-speed automatic transmission as standard on the latter. Custom built by Mercedes-Benz’s most experienced craftsmen, the 300 was luxuriously appointed and trimmed with materials of the highest quality. Fast and elegant, it was one of very few contemporary vehicles capable of carrying six passengers in comfort at sustained high speeds. It was the car of choice among West German government officials, and throughout Europe and the USA was widely favoured by businessmen, financiers and politicians. Indeed, ‘Adenauer’ became the 300 saloon/limousine’s unofficial model name, after German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, its most famous customer. The 300 ‘Adenauer’ Saloon that we have on offer today is a car that was restored 15 years ago, with both its interior and exterior showcased in fine condition. On the inside the red interior leather combines well with the dark wooden dashboard and trim, whilst on the outside the blue and white two-tone colour scheme oozes class and prestige, harking back to late fifties fashion. It comes to the sale with its Italian registration documents.
1968 Abarth 1000 TC Evocation Registration Number: Italian Registered
Chassis Number: 2368467
Estimate: â‚Ź24,000 - â‚Ź28,000
Since the beginning of the 20th century Italyâ€™s dominant car maker has been Fiat, who have a history of getting more for less. With imagination, ingenuity and support from a vast cottage industry of foundries, fabricators, fitters and artisan craftsmen they created a tradition of performance excellence getting phenomenal results from tiny engines and cars. Amongst the most well known and accomplished is Carlo Abarth, his name being synonymous with FIAT performance, creating tiny cars that demolished their larger competitors. The TC series started with the 850 TC Berlina, based on a modified FIAT 600 D chassis. Front brakes, crankshafts, intake, exhaust systems, among other parts were upgraded for competition purposes. Just 150 models were produced each month, keeping the cars eligible for the small bore grand touring classes, which they dominated. In 1967, Carlo Abarth introduced the 1.0 litre engine and the Radiale (or Hemi) head for group 5 racing in Europe. With the combination of 1000cc and the hemi head it was the first push rod engine of a 1000cc that produced more than 100 horsepower. This particular example is based on a 1968 Fiat 600 and is currently road registered in Italy. Fitted with a Abarth 112 engine tuned to produce about 80 HP with disc-wheel brakes on all 4 wheels, oil cooler. This car has been prepared by an ex works Abarth mechanic and is prepared for both road and track use. The engine was overhauled in March 2015.
1937 Ford V8 Model 78 “Woody” Station Wagon Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 18F3763718
Estimate: €50,000 - €60,000
The ‘Woody’ station wagon, with its characteristically half-timbered body ranks alongside the pickup truck or today’s people carrier as quintessentially American. The style originated in the 1930s, its popularity peaking immediately after WWII, though the style has been periodically revived by manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic. Towards the end of the 1950s the Woody became the vehicle of choice among California surfers, who appreciated its ability to carry several passengers and their boards. Surfer pop bands, The Beach Boys and Jan & Dean both referred to them in hit singles, thereby enshrining the Woody’s cult status. It has also featured in countless Hollywood movies. Sadly, after active service in World War II having been requisitioned, most were cut down or scrapped when the body timbers rotted, and the relatively few that survive today are both highly prized and increasing in value. This lovely, highly sought after right hand drive example of this Pre-War V8 Woody has resided in a significant German collection for the last 12 years. In terms of its condition, both woodwork and deep black coachwork can only be described as beautifully restored, indeed commensurate with a car that has graced such a significant private collection. The motor car has been restored both in Germany and in the USA, and comes complete with supporting invoices, bills and receipts for all the work. Registered in Germany in 2002, chassis 763718 is currently offered with German road title paperwork and EU taxes paid. This is one of the finest examples of a Woody Coys has seen. A true piece of Americana, which encapsulates a bygone era.
1993 Porsche 964 Carrera - 30,000kms from new Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: TBC
Estimate: €45,000 - €55,000
The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson in 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive as options. The 964 was considered to be 85% new as compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2. The first 964s available in 1989 were all wheel drive equipped “Carrera 4″ models; Porsche added the rear wheel drive Carrera 2 variant to the range in 1990. Both variants were available as a coupe, Targa or Cabriolet. The 964 Carrera was the last generation sold with the traditional removable Targa roof. Later evolutions of the Targa, starting with the 993 generation, replaced that setup with a complex glass-roof “greenhouse” system. A new naturally aspirated engine called the M64 was used for 964 models, with a flat-6 displacement of 3.6 litres. Porsche substantially revised the suspension, replacing the rear torsion bars with coil springs and shock absorbers. Power steering and ABS brakes were added to the 911 for the first time; both were standard. The exterior bumpers and fog lamps became flush into the car, allowing for better aerodynamics. A new electric rear spoiler raised at speeds above 50 mph and lowered down flush with the rear engine lid at lower speeds or at rest. A new automatic climate control system provided superior heating and cooling. This fabulous 911 looks stunning in black with a matching interior. Amazingly the 964 has covered a mere 30,000 kilometres from new, supported by a history file. Described as excellent in all respects, this is an investment grade example of the classic air-cooled 911.
1988 Lancia Delta Integrale Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: 2LA831ABU
Estimate: €20,000 - €25,000
Between 1987 and 1992, the Integrale utterly dominated its branch of motor sport, winning 46 rallies and six constructors’ championships outright. And to keep the rally car at the sharp end of the results table, the road car went through a number of iterations, each more potent than the last. As a road car, the Integrale is a truly joyful experience. Just like on the rally stages, its big rivalry in the early days came in the form of the Audi Quattro. Although the German competitor was significantly more expensive to buy, the Delta was smaller, quicker and much lighter on its feet. The Integrale is a true drivers’ machine, and delivers a huge amount of feel and feedback that makes them irresistible. The original Lancia Delta Integrale is considered by many enthusiasts to be the best. For this rally homologation special, a 2.0-litre version of the Fiat twin-cam had a full pressure turbo to deliver 185bhp. Combine this with permanent fourwheel drive and wide tyres and the ensuing super-hot hatch was fast, agile and grippy, with none of the torque steer than afflicted lesser rivals. This truly magnificent matching numbers Lancia Delta, with a mere 48,000 kilometres from new, is a rare find indeed. Delivered new in Italy, the Delta later found its way to Germany, where it was purchased by the present owner. Much maintenance work has been completed recently to address any minor issues, the bodywork shows no evidence of rust, and we believe the car still wears mostly original paint from new. Probably the best eight valve Integrale out there, an opportunity to buy an excellent example of one of the most iconic Italian cars of the 80s and 90s. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1965 Austin Mini Cooper S Registration Number: Dutch Registered
Chassis Number: C-A2S7/800244
Estimate: €42,000 - €52,000
By 1963 the BMC Competition department knew what they wanted to do with the Mini. Their efforts culminated in the 1963 Austin Cooper S and Morris Cooper S. Besides a host of upgrades, the primary difference was a specially cast engine block and cylinder head that was more suitable for racing. The first Cooper S models used a 1071cc engine with a special nitrided steel crankshaft. Factory upgrades included larger front disc brakes, a vacuum-assisted brake booster and offset steel wheels which were widened to 4½ inches by 1964. Despite only having around 75 bhp on tap, the Minis were very successful in Group 2 Rally racing, winning the Monte Carlo Rally outright. This charming car was built on the 26th of November 1965 and was despatched on the 25th January 1966 and is described by the vendor as being in excellent condition in every respect. The car comes complete with an extensive history file covering the last 20 years from 1996. Prior to the current owner, the car was in Portugal where it was with its keeper for nearly 20 years and is now Dutch registered. Sitting on Minilite wheels and supplied with a Heritage Certificate this Mini presents a sound investment, not to mention a whole lot of fun to drive today as it was in 1965.
1986 Porsche 911 Turbo Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WPOJB09306S051329
Estimate: €80,000 - €100,000
Beginning in the early 1970s, Porsche had demonstrated the worth of an exhaust-driven turbine for developing tremendous power for a given engine displacement, astounding the racing community with its World Endurance Championship-winning 917s. The company was quick to adapt turbocharging to its Group 4 Type 934 and Group 5 Type 935 racing coupes, basing those ferocious machines on the street-driven Type 930. Throughout the later 1970s and into the 1980s, the 930 evolved into an ever-more sophisticated, luxurious, and powerful road car. By 1987, the Turbo boasted a 3.3-liter engine, which was connected to a smooth four-speed manual transaxle and could produce 282 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 289 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm, The ventilated brake rotors were drilled for increased efficiency, and a large intercooler was housed within the “Tea-tray” rear spoiler. The 1987 930 Turbo, of which 1,695 were built for the U.S. market and another 786 for the “Rest of the World” (RoW), was capable of a near-160 mph top speed.Type 930. 282 bhp, 3,164 cc SOHC horizontally opposed air-cooled six-cylinder engine with a single turbocharger and Bosch electronic fuel injection, Type 930/36 four-speed manual transmission, independent front and rear suspension, and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. This beautiful original Porsche 911 Turbo is finished in the traditional Porsche colour scheme of Indian Red, complemented by a black leather interior. Showing just 83,000 recorded kilometers from new, this Turbo is offered with original books, also the correct Porsche stickers as per original. This lovely car is described as being in excellent condition in all respects. A great example of one of the poster cars of the ‘80s.
