101 1949 FORD SHOEBOX

Excellent Restored to Original Car Flathead V-8 Power Original Interior

Chassis Number

98BA658417 Estimate

$8,500 - $12,000 NO RESERVE

W

hen World War II ended, America’s car companies scrambled to be the first on the block with an all-new car. It took a few years for the retooling, but 1949 turned out to be a big year with new cars from practically all of Detroit’s car builders. Not to be left out was Ford with an all-new car for 1949. Gone was the tall and boxy look and fenders were now fully integrated into the body. Affectionately referred to as the “Shoe Box” Ford’s for their slab sided look, Ford’s cars for 1949 ushered in a more streamlined look that was modern and up-to-date. Never again would fenders hang from the body and a host of other refinements positioned Ford to move into the 1950s with gusto. Offered here is an excellent example of Ford’s all-new car, a 1949 Ford Custom six-passenger sedan finished in Seam Mist Green. As a top-of-the-line Custom, this sedan carries all of the upper line features including chrome window moldings, horn ring, chrome trim spears, passenger assist straps on the “B” pillar, and twin sun visors. This is an impeccably restored car that looks just as it did when new. All paint work is good with no blemishes or defects and all chrome including its massive front bumper is in excellent condition. It also wears optional rain guards on the windows and a sun visor across the front for the ultimate late 1940s look. This Ford rides on a set of wide white wall tires with correct

Custom series hubcaps. On the inside this 1949 Ford carries correct upholstery and a beautifully designed dashboard that even carries a stock Ford AM radio. With two full bench seats, this sedan carries a family of six with ease. Power for this 1949 Ford comes from a tried and proven 239 cubicinch V-8 with 100 horsepower that easily propels it to modern highway speeds. Power reaches the rear wheels through a three-speed transmission with a column mounted shifter and this is a car that runs as well as it looks. Ford’s cars for 1949 led the way to a more streamlined automobile and it was a very successful design. This example with its dedication to authenticity and dependable V-8 power is a car that is the perfect entry level collector car or could also sit in the finest collection of classic motorcars. For fun around town or extended family vacations, this 1949 Ford Sedan is more than ready for the open road.

102 1962 CADILLAC SERIES 62 SEDAN 54,642 miles Original Preservation car Documented Ownership History

Chassis Number

62N031061 Estimate

$12,000 - $15,000 NO RESERVE

F

or over 100 years the Cadillac name has provided comfort, prestige, and luxury in the American automobile. What started from the ashes of Henry Ford’s earliest venture into the motorcar was resurrected by Henry Leland and reborn as Cadillac. Named after a great French explorer, Cadillac’s innovative manufacturing techniques combined with excellent reliability solidified the marques reputation as a great car. In the 1930s, Cadillac went on to define the luxury car and each decade that followed saw Cadillac maintaining its position. By the 1960s rival Packard was gone and Cadillac’s cars had the field to themselves. Long, sleek, and superbly styled, Cadillac’s cars for the 1960s had a look defined classic elegance. This is no more evident than in the beautiful 1962 Series 62 sedan offered here. Finished in Cadillac’s lovely Neptune Blue, this Series 62 looks new, but looks are deceiving as it is a pristine preserved original car that has only been maintained to high-standards. The paint, upholstery, and carpets are all original and the only components that have been changed are the tires, brakes, batteries, and exhaust. This Series 62 rides just as a Cadillac should and glides on a 129.5-inch wheelbase. Cadillac’s design for 1962 is a marvel of simplistic elegance with a sharp, but tasteful fin and a matching lower rear quarter fin that was previewed on the 1959 Cadillac

Cyclone show car. Power equipment on this sedan includes windows, seats, steering, and brakes. It’s also equipped with cruise control, power headlight control, and GM’s Soft-Ray glass. Power comes from a 390 cubic-inch V-8 rated at 325 horsepower. The interior looks as new features all of the fine interior elegance that Cadillac is known for. Cadillac has always built a fine luxury car and with just 54,642 miles this Series 62 sedan is an elegant Cadillac that defines both preservation and excellence. Cruising on a fine summer with the entire family is made easy in this large sedan that’s just perfect for a summer vacation.

103 1958 AUSTIN HEALEY “SEBRING”SPRITE

Sebring style nose Roll bar Just out of a private collection

Chassis Number

AN5L9195 Estimate

$12,000 - $18,000 NO RESERVE

I

ntroduced in 1958, the Sprite was a completely new kind of Austin-Healey. Compared to the “big” Healeys of the period, the new Sprite was tiny, maneuverable, and despite its small engine, remarkably quick. Rack and pinion steering gave the car a nimble and direct feel, it was certainly fun to drive, and any speed at all seemed fast – giving both car and driver an exhilarating ride. At least as notable as its chassis dynamics, the car’s styling turned heads as well. Its rather unconventional headlight placement earned the car the nickname “bugeye” in the U.S., and “frogeye” at home. Whatever you called it, the Sprite was cute, and few women could resist the car – or, perhaps, its driver! The Sprite was also one of the first cars to feature a complete, tilting front end, a remarkable innovation that exposed the running gear thoroughly, making service a simple matter. There were few luxury comforts on

a Sprite, but at the price, few cared. They were fun, inexpensive, and offered the exhilaration that comes only from a top down drive on a warm spring morning. The example offered here is a very interesting early Sprite. This car features a Sebring style nose and a real roll bar for a very racy look. The nose is an original period accessory sold to turn your “bug eye” into a Sebring race car. The car has an older restoration, but presents well and features 1960’s vintage aftermarket mag wheels. Under the hood this car features a 42.5 horsepower 987 cc overhead valve fourcylinder engine, that runs very well, and is paired with a four-speed transmission. Just out of a private collection, this Sprite has a real race ready look and is ready for its new owner to take it to shows or to the track.

he cars used in Hollywood shows are many times just as famous as the stars themselves. After all, who can forget the Batmobile, Magnum PI’s Ferrari 308, or the Munster’s Koach? When television producer Martin Quinn came up with an idea for a new detective series featuring William Conrad in the role of Frank Cannon as a private detective it was decided early on that Cannon would be a man of fine taste. When the series made its debut in 1971 Cannon drove a Lincoln Mark III. The series lasted until 1976 and through it all the undefeatable Cannon drove a Lincoln thereby solidifying his sophisticated style and charisma. Offered here from the Chester Harwood collection is a first year 1969 Lincoln Mark III finished in Dark Orchid Poly with an optional white vinyl top. Everything about the Mark III screams luxury from its 117.2 inch wheelbase to its hefty 4,475 pound weight. This Mark III is largely in its original condition and has been well-cared for. The paint is clean with no blemishes and its attractive looks are nicely enhanced by Lincoln’s Turbine hub caps. Up front a massive grille is flanked by two concealed headlamps. The rear features Lincoln’s faux spare tire bubble and an enormous trunk has more room than most modern SUVs. Power comes from a massive 460 cubic-inch V-8 with an advertised 365 horsepower. Despite the size of the front end the 460 V-8 is still crowded under the hood and the engine compartment on this example is clean and nicely maintained.

The interior of the Mark III truly exemplifies the meaning of personal luxury with power steering, power brakes, power windows, split bench adjustable front seats, and an instrument and trim panels featuring simulated wood appliques. The upholstery features fine leather that has a diamond pattern on both the seats and the door panels. Lincoln’s 1969 Mark III proved to be a big hit with 23,858 built for the model year, which was almost even for its main competitor from Cadillac, the El Dorado. This nicely preserved Mark III is car that can be driven anywhere with the peace-ofmind that comes from a dependable car. For the collector of fine American luxury cars from a bygone era, this Mark III is ready to deliver for a drive of any distance.

Classic 1960s Motorcycle Twin Cylinder 305 cc Great for weekend riding

CA77E-1013758 Estimate

$4,500 - $6,500 NO RESERVE

I

n the 1950s and early 1960s, the American motorcycle market was dominated by the likes of Harley Davidson, Triumph, and BSA and enthusiasts of two wheels had not reached the level of refinement that we have in the present day. Indeed, the aura of the rebel was solidified with actors like Marlon Brando as an outlaw biker in “The Wild One.” So inspired by the movie when he saw it, a young man named James Dean went straight out and bought a Triumph TR5. The image of the motorcycle at that time was certainly defiant, but all of that changed when Honda began exporting its C72 and C77 series of motorcycles to America shores. Never before had anyone seen a motorcycle of such beauty. Its sleek appearance was like no other bike at the time with a pressed steel frame, lots of chrome, and wiring that was hidden within the handlebars and frame. A square headlamp also distinguished it from anything else and a smooth running engine that was ultra-quiet also brought a higher level of civility to riding a motorcycle. Indeed, the C77 was so beautiful it was dubbed as “The Dream.” No longer was the motorcycle a tool for the rebels as the Dream created a whole new segment in riding.

Offered here is a spectacular example of this most iconic motorcycle, a 1968 C77 Dream that has been beautifully restored and looks absolutely splendid in black. With just 17,789 miles, this Dream was treated to a full restoration in 2008 and has since been displayed more than used. All chrome carries a nice shine and all painted surfaces are good. This Dream is powered by the larger twin cylinder 305 cc and it easily cruises at 55 mph. This Dream has been recently tuned up and has a new battery and all mechanical systems receiving attention. The dramatic appearance of this Dream is nicely set off by a set of wide white wall Firestone Deluxe Champion tires that looks just right on a bike of this vintage. This Dream also comes complete with its original took kit. The Honda Dream is an iconic bike that literally changed the face and image of riding in the 1960s. This wonderful little bike is perfect for a nice summer day and is even better for summer use at the beach house. Whether driving along the street or parked in front of the local Post Office, this Dream gets attention wherever it goes.

Rare Twin Side Mounts Solid Packard Reliability High Quality Restoration

Chassis Number

109212768 Estimate

$25,000 - $30,000 NO RESERVE

A

s one of the Nation’s premier builders of fine motorcars, Packard created a name for itself as it carved out a niche in the luxury car market. That reputation as an extravagant car maker would come to haunt Packard as the depths of the Great Depression took hold. It was only by building cars that invaded Buick and Oldsmobile’s territory that Packard survived through the 1930s. So it was that when Packard introduced the One Twenty in 1935 it solidified its place in the mid-priced market and managed to hang on for a few more decades, something that many of America’s luxury car builders failed to do. Offered here from the Chester Harwood Collection of fine cars is a superbly restored 1937 Packard One Twenty Sedan that carries a commanding presence as one of America’s best cars. Riding on a 120-inch wheelbase (hence the name One Twenty) Packard’s medium priced car looked great as a roadster or coupe, but it was no more formal looking than in the body #1093 sedan. This example has been fully restored and carries a classy and formal dark brown finish that’s perfect for a Packard of such pedigree. Styling for Packard in 1937 was smooth and graceful with a tall and

elegant radiator grille flanked by two bullet styled headlamps complete with Packard driving lights. Elegantly styled fenders are accented by side mounted spare tires with Packard hard shell metal covers. The lovely color is set off by wide white wall tires with factory rims and Packard One Twenty hub caps with beauty rings. The cavernous interior is pure Packard luxury with fine upholstery complete with pleats and buttons. The dashboard is pure Art deco with elegantly styled gauges, knobs, switches, and the speedometer and clock occupy each side of the dash for a wellbalanced look. Rear seat passengers are treated to spacious and comfortable seating that is simply unheard of in a modern car. Power for this Packard comes from its tried and proven 282 cubic-inch L-Head inline eight with 120 horsepower. The pride of Packard shines through on this finely restored One Twenty Sedan. The versatility of this classy sedan is clearly evident as it’s a suitable car for any show, but is also capable of carrying the entire family on any tour. For dependability that can’t be matched combined with Packard’s fine styling of the 1930s this One Twenty Sedan is a car for all occasions.

107 1961 MGA 1600 ROADSTER

I Seldom seen late 1600cc model Just out of a 33 year ownership Wonderful restored condition

Chassis Number

GHNL89139 Estimate

$15,000 - $20,000

t is fair to say that the MGA was MG’s first actual post-war designed car, even if it did not arrive until a decade after the war. It answered a market demand, competing with the Triumph TR2 and then the TR3, and it was a less costly alternative to the big Healey. This meant that it became very popular very quickly, and most sports car clubs soon had many of them racing, rallying, and touring. It was an obtainable way to the sports car culture that reached its peak during the same years that the MGA was produced. Replacing the traditional T-Series MGs, the MGA combined a rigid chassis with the Austin-designed B-Series engine chosen as the power plant. Running gear was based on that of the TF, with independent front suspension and a live rear axle, but as far as its road manners were concerned, the far superior MGA was in an entirely different league. It was a car that had a stylish aerodynamic body and capable of topping 95mph, making the MGA an instant hit, selling 13,000 units in its first full year of production. After reliability issues plagued the Twin Cam model, engine enlargement was seen as the way forward. The result was a capacity increase from 1,489cc to 1,588cc that raised maximum power to 80bhp and boosted torque

by 17 percent. Acceleration was improved and the MGA in ‘1600’ form was now a true 100mph-plus car. The motorcar offered is a wonderful late MGA. This car features the late high compression 1600cc engine paired with a four speed transmission. Also being a late 1961 model it has disc brakes in the front giving much better stopping power as opposed to the drum brakes of the earlier models. This particular car is just out of an estate and had been owned by the same gentleman for the past 33 years. In 2004 the car had a complete restoration including all mechanicals and cosmetics. Finished in a handsome dark blue with a black interior and top, this MGA shows very well. Everything is very well sorted and the car is ready for rallying or show.

he Chevrolet Corvette is America’s most iconic sports car, introduced in 1953 and still in production today. Although the first generation from 1953 to 1955 introduced the Corvette to America, it was the second series, which made its debut in 1956, that truly earned the title of “America’s Sports Car.” The clean good looks of Harley Earl’s new body design was extremely appealing to the American public, and it quickly outsold the first series Corvette by a margin of three to one. In addition, Zora Arkus-Duntov and Chevrolet Engineering had dramatically altered the personality of Chevrolet’s sports car with a new focus on performance, a growing range of powerful small block V-8 engines, and improved handling. The most beautiful Corvette to ever leave Chevrolet was the 1958 model with its four head-

lights, chrome strips on the trunk and louvered hood, a one year only car that is every Corvette collectors dream to own, especially a 1958 Model that has performance options such as a factory four speed manual transmission and dual 4 barrel carburetors producing 245 horsepower. The motorcar offered is such an example, having a matching numbers dual four barrel 283 V-8 engine paired with a manual 4 speed transmission with 245 horsepower and only a single owner for the past 16 years. Heavily documented with photographs and documentation, the frame off restoration on this car is superb and very correct having won over fifty trophies demonstrating its high originality and excellent condition. This car is prepared to score very highly at an NCRS judging event.

Everything works and is dialed in so it is ready for showing or driving. Finished in signet red with a white cove and matching interior this corvette is a magnificent and incredibly handsome example. The Corvette may have struck a chord with the American public when it was introduced, but has now grown and become one of the most iconic sports cars to ever grace the earth. With such a heritage, this only makes the 1958 model year that much more special, being to most the epitome of all the corvettes especially a car that has a perfect documented restoration, matching numbers and factory original high performance options.

he following that early Ford V-8 cars have is unlike any other and is something that cannot be explained any other way than being described as incredible. Early Ford V-8’s are incredible in themselves and the 1940 Ford convertibles and coupes are by far the most sought after of all the models offered in the 1940’s decade. The 1940 Ford introduced several new features and one of the most distinctive designs of the pre-war era with style and flair that has made it a favorite of collectors, street rodders and customizers for generations. Technically, a significant change was the relocation of the gearshift from the floor to the steering column, a modern feature that was not only more convenient for the driver but also increased front seat legroom for passengers. Ford also introduced sealed beam headlights in 1940, finally eliminating the system that relied on separate bulbs. The sealed beams sat at the front of the fenders in oval chrome housings that also incorporated the parking lights, merging earlier Fords’ covered headlight treatment with the improved efficiency and durability of the sealed beam bulbs. The single element vee grille of 1939 was broadened for better cooling with separate grille elements located on each side of the center grille, a sharp and distinctive visual identification feature. Inside, the

wood-grained dashboards that Ford had used for years were replaced by a modern dashboard in maroon and beige plastic that employed rectangular forms for the instrument panel, as well as the radio and large speaker, which were now a common feature. Bob Gregorie’s two-spoke steering wheel, which had earned high praise and acceptance in the 1939 Mercury, now found its way into the Ford, rendered in maroon and beige plastic to blend with the new dashboard design. Overall the 1940 deluxe model was by far one of the most outstanding and handsome Fords to ever roll off of the assembly line. It is one of the most Iconic Fords in automotive history. The 1940 Ford Deluxe Convertible Coupe offered here benefits from an outstanding older restoration. Finished in beautiful black with a brown interior and a new black canvas top, this car is extremely sharp. Although this car wears an older restoration its shows extremely well and doesn’t look aged, it can be driven or showed with pride. Under the hood this Deluxe model Ford convertible retains its original 221 c.i. 85 horsepower flathead V-8 engine that runs very well and paired to its original bulletproof Ford three speed transmission. All black with red wheels and wide whitewall tires, this car is ready to cruise the strip like it was 1957 all over again. The 1940 Fords are one of the best looking Fords ever built and one of the most sought after, especially in their original configuration, as this car is presented, because so many were hot rodded or customized over the years. This car being a restored original Deluxe 1940 Ford is very seldom seen and being a convertible makes it that much better. This car is ready to become a part of a fine collection of motorcars or be driven for top down Flathead fun.

t the very beginnings of self powered transportation, the automobile was starting to become an enormous part of life, but the motorcycle quickly became a not only just transportation, but a lifestyle and Harley Davidson was one of the first in the United States to build such an unbelievable creation. The first Harley V-twin was built in 1909, but it really hit its stride in 1911 when they introduced the overhead “pocket valve’ In 61 cubic inch form, and it would remain in production for 20 years. Later, the 74 cubic inch was introduced in 1922 and could be bought with electrical equipment or without. The 1924 Harleys introduced aluminum pistons and Alemite fittings, which meant a grease gun, which was included, could be used to force lubrication into bushings at 500 psi. The spindly look from the teens disappeared in 1926 with a major redesign including a rounder

tank and more comfortable handle bars. A new frame lowered the rider by 3 inches, which improved the center of gravity and the handling , the chassis was also stiffened  and full pressure lubrication was introduced .  This 1928 JD model offered here was cosmetically restored from a fantastic low mileage original bike. The bike was found in Connecticut about 15 years ago in the upper loft of a barn where it had been hidden away since the 1940’s. The current owner is a long time collector and enthusiast and is very particular about originality . The next owner should completely enjoy this superb classic Harley whether he rides or shows, it will  be a real ‘Headturner’.

T

he Hudson Motor Car Company got its start in 1909. Their first car was the Model 20 and was sold as a low-priced car. A very respectable 20,000 were sold and Hudson was off to a solid start. Progressive innovation was the hallmark of Hudson as they were the first car company to offer a dual braking system, balanced crankshafts, and critical engine monitoring gauges built into the dashboard. Hudson was also one of the first in the industry to hire female designers, a move that gave them an intricate perspective on the automobile from a women’s point of view. It was only natural then that Hudson’s all-new postwar car for 1948 would be different, better, and sleeker than anything else on the market. Dubbed the “Step Down” design, Hudson featured a floor that was inside the perimeter of the frame thereby allowing the whole car to be drastically lower than anything else Detroit had. This also allowed for a strong and light weight body and Hudson went on to dominate NASCAR racing in the early 1950s. So successful was Hudson’s racing

program that some of their records for consecutive wins still stand today. With the new step-down design, Hudson was the car to beat both at the track and on the street. Offered here from the Chester Harwood collection is a beautifully restored example of one of Hudson’s best, a top-of-the-line 1953 Hornet in Toro Red with a matching black roof. This Hornet was fully restored by a Hudson marque specialist and presents as a factory correct car. Hudson’s step-down design looks absolutely dazzling on this Hornet, which rides on a 124-inch wheelbase. Everything about Hudson’s Hornet for 1953 is smooth and aerodynamic with an abundance of chrome and a graceful front end design that features a massive bumper complete with the Hudson crest and a chrome accented hood scoop. A large trim spear carries down the sides and rocker moldings run from the front wheel openings to the rear. A set of fender skirts gives it a streamlined look and the long rear deck sets the tone of a long and elegant car. A jet inspired emblem rides on

the rear trunk and proudly proclaims the Hornet name while the “Twin-H-Power” is also emblazoned above the Hudson name directly over the rear bumper. The interior presents just as nice as the exterior with fine upholstery in a fabric and vinyl motif. The design of the door panels is most impressive with an intricately woven fine pattern with chrome accents and once again the Hornet emblem is proudly displayed. Seating is comfortable across the Hornet’s huge front seat and a beautifully designed dashboard speaks directly to the futuristic influence of the jet age. This Hudson rides on a set of wide white wall tires with Hudson’s full wheel cover hub caps. Power for this Hornet comes from a 308 cubic-inch inline six rated at 145 horsepower. The engine compartment is nicely detailed with correct wiring and plumbing. Most impressive is the two large air cleaners over its twin carburetors that proudly announces the “Twin H-Power” that brought so much fame to Hudson in racing circles.

The last Hudson rolled off the line in June of 1957 and a small glimmer of the past would be resurrected by American Motors in 1970 as the Hornet, but the company that literally created innovation and dominated NASCAR racing was gone. This nicely restored 1953 Hornet with its powerful dual carbureted inline six and excellent

detailing is a superb car that would be welcomed on the show field and is also at home on the open road. For a wonderful glimpse into America’s past, this Hudson Hornet would make a splendid addition to any collection.

rand and opulent cars of the 1930s are always a sight to behold. It is here that we find the Golden Age of the Motorcar with long wheelbases, decorative chrome plating, and big engines. For 1930, Harley Earl’s La Salle was still making headlines as a salon styled car that actually came off of a production line and looked almost identical to its big brother, the Cadillac. In particular, La Salle’s Model 4060 Five passenger Fleetwood “Fleetshire” Sport Phaeton was a car that offered grand excellence at a price of $2,385. It wasn’t the cheapest car on the market, but it did offer styling on par with the greatest of cars.

Offered here is a great example of this magnificent motorcar in a lovely two-tone cream and brown. This La Salle Phaeton was owned by the same family since the 1970s and is a veteran of the several outings including the Glidden Tour. It wears an older restoration that has held up very well and still shines brightly wherever it goes. As a high-end motorcar it’s also nicely accessorized with dual side mounted spares with strap-on rear view mirrors, rear luggage rack with trunk, all-weather side curtains, wire wheels, and a nifty period correct license plate. Power for this grand phaeton comes from a 340 cubic-inch V-8 rated at 90 horsepower and this La Salle is also fitted with overdrive for touring of any distance. The interior is what anyone would

mall cars hold a charm all their own, and no one made a small car more stylish than Autobianchi. Founded in 1955 by Bianchi, Pirelli, and Fiat, the company specialized in the smallest of cars that offered excellent transportation with great reliability. During its 40 years, the company built only a few different models, one of which was the Bianchina. Based on Fiat’s 500 mechanicals, the Bianchina was powered by a two-cylinder air-cooled engine mounted at the rear. Styling was by Luigi Rapi and it was actually marketed as an upscale car. One of the variants of the Bianchina was the “Transformable” which featured a roll back convertible roof. Offered here is a stellar example of this cute little car in the form of a 1959 Transformable in a two-tone Italian Red with a white top. This sparkling little gem

carries a nice shine and has just been serviced. All chrome is in good condition and this little Bianchina rides on a set of wide white wall tires. Louvers on the rear deck allow for engine cooling and styling and the Bianchina name is proudly spelled out across the back. The interior is finished in a two tone red and white and offers a simplistic charm that is seldom found in a small car. Despite its small size the Bianchina holds four passengers in comfort. The Autobianchi Bianchina is a quality Italian micro car that has a very unique design that is very rarely seen. For fun around town in a car that’s sure to gather its fair share of smiles, this little Autobianchi Bianchina Transformable is a great little car for any occasion.

he Porsche 911 is a car that needs no introduction in the world of performance sports cars. Introduced in 1963, it has been steadily refined and is still in production today. Although the 911 has seen many variations with the Carrera RS, the 930 Turbo, the SC, and the 964 to name a few, the general layout has never changed. Rear engine power in a chassis that is highly tuned makes for a car that is pure paradise to drive. That the Porsche 911 has stayed in production for over five decades is a tribute not only to Porsche’s fine engineering, but also to the design of a car that was done right the first time. Perhaps the proof is found in Porsche’s victories with the 911, after all it did win the Rally Monte Carlo in its very first year. The subsequent decades saw the 911 win the Targo Floria, Daytona, Sebring,

and the crown jewel of all, the 1979 Le Mans. In the present day, Porsche builds more competition cars than any other manufacturer. The 930 Turbo offered here is an excellent example of Porsche’s fine heritage and is finished in an attractive bronze. The heritage of Porsche’s fine cars is nicely displayed in this 1979 930 Turbo that is powered by its original engine upgraded from a 3.3 to a 3.4 liter engine. Some of the upgrades include a Ruf intercooler and fuel-injection by Motec. The engine compartment is also nicely detailed with correct colors, wiring, hoses, and clamps. The engine has been meticulously maintained and the roar of Porsche’s excellent engineering is most impressive. This is a numbers matching car that comes

with its Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche. It was originally delivered new in California and has had just three owners from new. All books and tools are with the car as well as all original parts that were removed in the engine upgrade and these are sold with the car. Most impressive is the 930s signature “Whale Tail” rear

spoiler that gives this Porsche a look that’s all business. The interior is just what one would expect from a real “driver’s” car and is finished in black with “Turbo” script floor mats and nicely aged original leather. This 930 rides on correct Porsche Fuchs rims with high-performance tires.

The 911 is a legend in the world of motorsports and this 930 Turbo is a superb example of this legendary car. For the connoisseur of fine German engineering, this Porsche with its precise handling and excellent appearance is a car that’s ready for the open road.

he postwar market of World War II was an intense battle ground as the motoring public clamored for anything they could get. As a car starved nation struggled to get itself back on wheels, America’s car manufacturers had a field day by selling everything they could build. They also loaded their cars up with accessories that may or may not have been needed, but had to be purchased with the car. One car that needed very little in the way of dress-up options was Chrysler Town & Country Sedan. With the look of real wood and a beautifully sculptured body, the Town & Country was a car that was at home at the drive-in theater or the local country club. Offered here is a spectacular Town & Country sedan from the Chester Harwood collection of fine motorcars that’s finished in Panama Sand adding a perfect match to its fine Mahogany and Birch wood work. The elegant lines of Chrysler’s fine cars of the late 1940s are clearly evident in the

rounded fenders and nicely balanced lines of Chrysler’s best for 1947. This Chrysler has been beautifully restored and also runs as good as it looks. The exterior is nicely complemented by a set of search lights and a real wood roof luggage rack. The interior features a sea of beautiful red leather with real wood door panels and an elegant Art Deco inspired dashboard that gleams with chrome. An opulent touch is found in the real wood headliner bows that are finished to match the interior. Power for this Town

s one of the founders of the motorcar, Buick was doing a brisk business in 1909 and was in second place for U.S. motorcar production. Business was excellent with 14,606 cars produced for the year. Steady refinement was also the order of the day as Buick dropped some less popular models and increased the availability of its remaining body styles. Simple things like rounding off the front and rear fenders also helped Buick maintain that new-car look. At the helm of Buick was the legendary Billy Durant, who was subsidizing his growing General Motors Empire through the success of Buick. Durant also brought Walter Chrysler aboard and before long Buick was producing an astounding 550 cars per day. Durant would be ousted as GM’s chairman in 1911, but he made a triumphant return in 1916. Through it all Buick maintained itself as one of America’s best cars. In the present day Buick is one of the oldest car companies in the world and has been in production for over 100 years.

The Buick offered here is an outstanding example of Buick’s early history, a 1909 Model F Touring car that could be the most remarkably preserved of its kind in existence. This Model F is powered by a two-cylinder engine mounted directly under the seat. With an original price of $1,250 the Model F was a well optioned car for 1909; kerosene powered lamps, gas headlamps, a bulb horn, and even a tool kit that were all standard on the Model F. This Buick Model F emerged from long term museum display in 2015 and has recently been mechanically refurbished. Its two-cylinder engine runs great and carries the unique sound that only a brass era car could. It’s also been fitted with

period correct tires and a new top, but the wonderful patina that this car carries has been left intact. So original is this Buick that it even retains its factory lighting, bulb horn, and its large and stately brass radiator which proudly displays the Buick name. The originality of this Model F is validated by its wonderful patina that’s perfect for a preservation class. Its two cylinder engine is a marvel of engineering simplicity that’s both easy to work on and offers a degree of reliability that is seldom found in an early 2 cylinder motorcar. The 2 cylinder Buicks are known for being one of the most powerful 2 cylinder cars of the brass era and can be driven comfortably

at 40 MPH which is fantastic for touring. The Buick name is part of the very foundation of the American motorcar and this Model F is a magnificent example of this great company. As an unmolested early motorcar, this Model F is sure to be a big hit at any show. With its recent mechanical wake up after its 60 year slumber, solid Buick reliability and beautiful original patina, this car is ready for show or touring of any distance.

ames Ward Packard was a man that never left a challenge unanswered. So it was that when he towed his new Winton back to the factory behind a team of horses for the last time Alexander Winton himself told him in no uncertain terms that if he could build a better car himself that he should do just that. Indeed, Packard not only built a better car, but his company would go on to define the very meaning of the word luxury in the American motorcar market. Just two decades later, it was not unusual to find Packard’s fine motorcars owned by the highest members of society. Packard’s cars were exclusive to the higher echelons of society and it wasn’t until 1935 with the introduction of the Model One Twenty that Packard offered a car for the middle class. The magnificent One Twenty proved to be a big hit as mo-

torists who previously thought they could only drive an Oldsmobile or a Buick could now step up to the prestige of the Packard name. Indeed, the popularity of the One Twenty enabled Packard to stay in business far longer than most of its other luxury car counterparts. Packard offered the One Twenty in a coupe, sedan, limousine, and even a station wagon, but its beauty was no more evident than in a convertible like the splendid example offered here. Finished in a tasteful Medium Blue with a tan lather interior this One Twenty makes for an impressive arrival at any event. It was sold new in New York City and has been in the area since. The restoration of this One Twenty took several years, but it is now a pristine car that wears the Packard name with pride. Its 120-inch

the inside the interior is everything one would expect from a grand Packard with fine leather stitching and a dashboard lay out that features all of the design elements from the Art Deco period coupled with a banjo styled steering wheel. This One Twenty is also equipped with a radio and heater. Power for the One Twenty comes


from a 282 L-Head straight eight rated at 120 horsepower. Packard’s One Twenty line may have entered the mid-price range of cars, but it did so while also carrying the prestige of the Packard name in spades. The One Twenty convertible sold for new for $1,250 while a Chevrolet convertible could be had for $725. Such was the difference between the average and the elite. No collection is complete without a grand open car from the 1930s and this Packard represents a rare opportunity to obtain one of the best. With its gorgeous restoration and great Packard reliability it’s a car that’s ready for the open road or the show field.

hen World War II ended, American automakers raced to satisfy the demand for new automobiles which was long overdue because of the war. While the U.S. War Department officially banned work not directly related to the war effort, Ford staff did prepare for peacetime by carefully refining the 1942 models. Mercury production resumed on November 1, 1945, and as with all other makes in 1946, the 1946 Mercury was a face lifted version of the 1942, with a new “high-style” grille design. The public approved. Total Mercury production was 86,608 automobiles, achieving the tenth-highest volume for 1946. Prices averaged $188 more model-for-model than for a Super DeLuxe Ford V8. In exchange, Mercury buyers enjoyed a four-inch-longer wheelbase, upgraded exterior trim, interior trimmings, and upholstery. Mechanically, buyers appreciated the power of the famed “flathead” V8 engine in 100-horsepower tune, which incorporated piston, bearing

and cooling-system improvements that enhanced reliability and performance. Underneath, ride and handling improvements included a rear stabilizer bar and increased brake lining area. Both Fords and Mercury’s utilized a unique front-and-rear transverse leaf spring suspension. Criticized at the time as “buggy” springs, they actually worked well and produced superior handling. As one of just 6,044 Mercury Convertibles produced in 1946, the car offered here is a great example of the 1946 Mercury. It wears an older restoration, but it still very presentable. Finished in maroon with a black top this car is very sharp. Under the hood is a 239 cubic inch, 100 horsepower flathead V-8 which is visually very presentable and runs very well. Hidden away in a private collection for years, this Mercury convertible is now ready for its new owner.

here’s always something special about brute American horse power in a finely tuned European sports car. No one explored this concept more than Carroll Shelby, who oversaw some of the largest horsepower engines placed into the smallest cars ever known. In 1964, the Sunbeam Company was producing their wonderful little Alpine, a sporting touring car that had dashing good looks. Carroll Shelby thought an improvement was in order and he proceeded to retrofit an Alpine with a 260 cubic-inch Ford V-8. The plan was for Shelby to contract with Sunbeam and build the car at his American facility, but it was decided that it would be produced in England with Shelby receiving a royalty for each one built. In the end, it was called the Tiger and with its Ford V-8 it turned out to be a stellar performing car very similar to the Shelby Cobra.

Offered here is a 1965 Sunbeam Tiger that has recently undergone a cosmetic and mechanical refreshed, but remains largely in its original and well preserved condition. It’s finished in a bold vibrant blue with a black hardtop. The interior is finished in red and the real wood dashboard adds a touch of GT Touring class to this Tiger. Power comes from its Ford 260 cubic inch V-8 mated to a four-speed manual transmission. This Tiger’s preservation can be attributed to it being in dry storage for several decades. All systems have since been serviced and it’s now ready once again for the open road. The nimble handling and V-8 power of this fine British roadster makes it the perfect car for a summer day.

n 1940, Buick presented a new line of cars known as the Series 50, although most widely recognized as the Super. It shared the 248 cubic inch inline eight cylinder overhead valve engine rated at 107 horsepower and shared the 121 inch wheelbase with the Buick Special while its beautiful body was shared with the striking Roadmaster. At its introduction the Super was available as a four-door convertible sedan, sport coupe with a full rear seat and then later as a convertible and a woodie. The public instantly responded to the Super and helped make Buick one of the year’s more successful auto manufacturers as their total production topped over 300,000. The 1940 Buick’s features included a balanced engine in which the engine unit was assembled complete with a clutch and then checked for running balance on a special machine. It also had a redesigned smoother suspension and three speed manual transmission. The engine turned dash panel and glove compartment door was a quality addition to the interior. Additionally, Buick also used sealed beam head lights for the first time on all of their cars. In 1940, the Buick Convertible was a true showing of class and style and as one of only 4,769 built; it is also one of the most rare cars they produced that year. The 1940 Buick Super’s were in many ways

a marketing test for important future styling cues. In particular, the Super line had a more modern look by way of deleting side mounted tires and running boards yet maintained the classic Buick design cues which the public had come to admire and recognize. The handsome 1940 Buick Super Convertible Coupe Model 56C offered here is finished in maroon paint with a sumptuous matching dark red leather interior. The dash is beautifully wood grained with the correct engine-turned instrument cluster and glove box to brighten the interior. Everything on the car is correct including the original radio, clock and dual heaters. The car has been owned by a collector for a while and has been kept in great condition. It wears an older restoration, but presents extremely well with all bright work in show condition and leather interior that also has been done correctly which gives the car the right look with the top folded down and when driving. Overall this 1940 Buick Super convertible coupe is a somewhat rare model and in great condition, a car that can be shown and driven with pride. These prewar convertibles are beginning to enjoy a rise in both their value and enthusiast appreciation as they are not only sensible, practical drivers but head turners in their own right.

s one of Italy’s older car companies, Lancia has literally defined the chapter of the motorcar through the years. Indeed, great cars like the Aurelia and the Stratos not only performed well as a reliable car, but also did their fair share of damage in completion as well. In 1961, Lancia introduced a new front-wheel-drive Flavia and the following

year development continued with the Zagato-built Sport. The Sport was lighter than the standard Flavia with most of the weight being saved by an alloy body. This was a radically designed car with extensive glass work at the rear with a concave shaped rear window that was hinged on top. All of these design elements made for a car that was both aero dynamic and fast. Offered here is an excellent example of this great performance car, a 1965 Lancia Flavia Sport Zagato that is a veteran of many competition events on several continents. This Lancia is set up of for racing with a roll bar and competition seats with Sabelt racing harnesses. This is also a fully restored car that presents well in all

The power and handling that this car has is simply incredible, immediately noticeable when getting behind the wheel. This Sport Zagato also comes with its original log book and Italian license plates. The Lancia Flavia Sport Zagato is a car that created many legendary stories on the race track and this pristine example still has a few pages of history left to write.

he beauty of real wood has always had a place in the automotive world. Whether on the dashboard of an exotic Packard town car or on the skiff body of a coach built Rolls-Royce, the various patterns and grains of real wood adds a certain charm to a motorcar that brings it to a different level. When Chrysler offered their line of Town & Country cars during the 1940s, they were as glamorous as any Cadillac of the day. Except during a brief hiatus for World War II, the beauty of real wood was the main feature of these elegant cars, a fact not lost on many affluent members of society. Television star Jackie Gleason was known to drive an elegant Town &

Country, which didn’t harm the image of Chrysler’s superstar of cars. Offered here from the Chester Harwood Collection is a 1948 Town & Country convertible finished in a gorgeous Heather Green. The elegant style of Chrysler’s car for 1948 is clearly evident in this Town & Country, but its beautiful wood almost steals the show. Riding on a 127.5 inch wheelbase, the smooth style of the final immediate postwar design of Chrysler’s styling is clearly evident in the way that the front fenders blend nicely into the doors. Elegant trim spears create a look that’s both classy and refined and an egg crate grille is

massive with a front bumper that rounds both corners. At the rear a gorgeous sea of Mahogany and Birch is nicely finished with a high-gloss shine. The interior features a body matching dashboard and a two-tone green and gray upholstery that’s both comfortable and elegant. This large car easily fits six passengers and touring on a fine summer day only gets better with the top down. Power for this Chrysler comes from its reliable 323.5 cubic-inch L-Head inline eight cylinder

rated at 135 horsepower. The entire package is nicely pulled together with a set of wide white wall tires with Chrysler logo hubcaps and beauty rings in chrome. All paint and brightwork looks great on this Town & Country and it’s also a car that runs as well as it looks. The use of real wood in the present day is all but gone with the exception of the most exotic and expensive cars, but this 1948 Chrysler Town & Country convertible

takes us back to a time when real wood was available on a production based car. Of course that beauty was not cheap as the Town & Country was Chrysler’s most expensive car at $3,420. With its gorgeous wood and fine Chrysler engineering, this is a car that is worthy of any world class collection of fine motorcars.

hen World War II ended Jaguar managed to pick up the pieces and move forward. One of its first orders of business was to change the company name from S.S. to Jaguar Cars Limited. It took three years, but in 1948 a prototype for their new sports car was unveiled at the London Motor Show. The new car was actually a test bed for Jaguar’s new overhead twin cam six. There was never any doubt that it was a sleek sports car with a powerful engine and room for just two. Introduced as the XK120, it was an aerodynamic dream. The sleek lines of the XK120 caused a sensation and the head of Jaguar, William Lyons, had the car put into production immediately. Building the XK120 proved to be a daunting

task with metal still in short supply and the first 200 were built with a wooden frame and an aluminum body. Steel bodies became the norm in 1950 and the XK120 stayed in production all the way into 1954 when it was replaced by the XK140. In its day the XK120 was billed as the fastest production car in the world. In the present day this iconic sports car is highly prized both in classic circles and vintage competition events. The 1954 Jaguar XK120 offered here is an amazing piece of this company’s history and truly displays the significance of Jaguar’s heritage. It’s also fitted with the SE or “Special Equipment” option that gives it high lift camshafts, dual

Finished in classic Rally Red this XK120 has had a stellar competition history of 25 years and is more than ready for vintage and rally events. The engine was completely rebuilt to competition specifications and was balanced, ported, and fitted with a Quartermaster racing clutch. It also uses Isky camshafts and uses a limited split differential. An oil cooler ensures reliability on the track and a custom aluminum radiator with an auxiliary fan keeps the engine cool. This XK120’s twin cam six breaths through a triple carburetor set-up and the engine

compartment is nicely detailed. A set of stainless steel wire wheels with Dunlap racing tires gives it a period correct look while stainless steel headlamp screens offer protection on the track. On the inside the interior is nicely upholstered in biscuit with an aircraft honeycomb aluminum floor, custom wind screens, and Jaguar D-Type leather seats with a Simpson racing harnesses. A removable roll bar and diagonal brace also offers protection on the track. Additional equipment that comes with this XK120 includes its original top frame, original seats, standard cam shafts, spare tire, rear brake drums, and its original center console.

The Jaguar XK120 made its mark on the world of motorsports and continues to do so in vintage racing events. This car has been run successfully at both Lime Rock Park and Watkins Glenn. For the ultimate street car that can also be run on the track, this XK120 offers speed, fun and style.

othing says power and prestige louder than a Packard. For over five decades the Packard name was a hallmark of luxury as they built cars for kings, queens, and every other facet of society’s finest. Certainly if one’s arrival to a social event had to be noticed, there was no better way than to arrive in one of Packard’s opulent limousines, sporty roadsters, or grand phaetons. In the Golden Era of the 1930s, Packard built some of their best cars and today these fine motorcars are recognized as some of the finest cars ever built.

Offered here to the collector of fine cars from the Golden Era of the motorcar is a 1930 Packard Phaeton complete with wire wheels and dual side mounted spares. This Grand Classic is a former Antique Automobile Club of America National First Prize winner and displays today just as it did when freshly restored. As a senior topof-the-line Packard, this car carries all of the styling attributes, class, and prestige that the company was known for. Finished in a lovely two-tone dark brown and tan it also carries contrasting orange wire wheels with chrome spokes. Packard’s

ike a Rembrandt or a Picasso, every Ferrari ever built has a unique pedigree that separates it from the average car. Purpose built and performance bred, the smooth and sleek styling coupled with engines of enormous power give each and every Ferrari an aura of prestige. Of course, that was always Enzo Ferrari’s goal as he produced some of the fastest cars in the world. Indeed, building production cars was deemed only a necessity that kept his racing program alive. The Ferrari tradition of building the fastest and

best is still alive today in the form of the F12 Berlinetta, the GTC4 Lusso, and the 488 GTB. Through it all Ferrari has never wavered in its quest to build the best. The Ferrari offered here is a milestone in this company long and stellar history, a 1991 348 with custom coachwork by Zagato. Indeed, the Zagato is a legend as one of Italy’s premier independent coach builders. Zagato built just eight bodies on Ferrari 348s in 1991 and the example offered here was the last one built.

Finished in gleaming silver over black, this 348 has just 30,000 kilometers since new. The masterful artwork of Zagato’s stylists is clearly evident in this 348 as the company literally rebodied the entire car in aluminum. Zagato’s treatment started at the front by replacing the bumper in favor of their own design that removed the central grille for a smoother and more aerodynamic look. The sides also received super enlarged air ducts for engine cooling. The rear features Zagato’s redesigned engine cover with a nifty clear glass section that proudly displays Ferrari’s 300 horsepower dual overhead valve V-8. A triple tail light design added a touch of flare and an electronically-operated spoiler were also part of the Zagato touch. Perhaps the best feature of this 348 is Zagato’s


signature double bubble roof line that has been a hallmark of their designs since the 1950s. Zagato finished off the 348 with custom OZ Racing alloy wheels and external fuel filler caps. Best of all is that this Ferrari’s mechanicals are untouched as Zagato was not a tuning shop, but strictly a styling salon.

This fine example of Zagato’s work coupled with Ferrari’s performance heritage makes for a car that is beautiful, rare, and fast. This 348 was recently serviced and is ready for the open road. With its pristine condition and low mileage this example is certain to be one of the best in existence. For a

rare Ferrari that offers performance and coach built styling, this 1991 348 is an investor grade car that deserves a special place among the greatest of performance cars.

acing bikes have always held a special pedigree in the world of competitive motorsports, but as one of the fastest motorcycles in the world Ducati actually got its start by building condensers and vacuum tubes for radios. It was only after the ravages of World War II that Ducati learned that there just might be a market for a two-wheeler. At first they built an engine that could be mounted to a bicycle, much the same as the American Whizzer, but by the 1950s Ducati was building motorcycles that were small, nimble, and fast. They continued developing these small bikes and by the 1960s, Ducati’s were winning races all over Europe. It was in 1965 that Ducati changed the face of speed in a small motorcycle when they introduced the amazing Mach 1. Powered by a 250 cc four-stroke single cylinder engine the Mach 1 was capable of just over 100 mph, an unheard of speed for a small bike. Ducati produced only a few Mach 1’s as each one was hand-built and today they are one of the most sought after collector motorcycles in the world. Offered here is perhaps one of the best preserved examples of this rare bike in the way of a 1965 Mach 1 with just 1500

miles from new. This bike was located in a basement in Canada since the early 1970’s and was recently serviced and now runs as good as new. Although it has been mechanically refreshed its paint and chrome were left intact presents today with a patina that only the hands of time could create. The innovative design of this bike is clearly evident in is single open cradle frame that carries its 10:1 compression engine. Telescopic front forks make performance riding easy and a rear swing arm with three-way adjustable shock absorbers offer an adjustable ride for the street or track. A five speed transmission handles the gearing and the bright Ducati Red and silver finish makes this bike flashy as well as fast. Performance motorcycles that have survived intact are a rarity as many are used and abused beyond repair, but this Mach 1 is an exception in that it has been well cared for and presents today as an original condition bike that has never been neglected. Indeed, the Ducati Mach 1 is one of the most sought after motorcycles in the world and this one could very well be the best preserved page in this incredible chapter of Ducati’s stellar competition history.

he TR2 was the first true post-war Triumph sports car. It was superseded in 1955 by the TR3 and finally the TR4, which signaled the end of the era of open side curtain cars and the beginnings of a new era of a Triumph with not just performance and style, but with all the comforts of a luxury car. A completely new body featured roll-up windows, and while the purists howled, everyone else rejoiced. Another modern convenience was, for the first time, a proper boot. Chassis and drivetrain were little changed, with the most important updates being a synchromesh first gear, rack-and-pinion steering and an engine with slightly more power. The cumulative effect of the changes was quite dramatic. The TR4 was a car that could be used every day.

The motorcar offered is an exquisite example of the driver friendly and stylish TR4. Just out of a private collection, this car has been well taken care of. Finished in red with a black interior, this car screams style. It also features wire wheels which really gives the car a proper British sports car look.

.O. Bentley was a man who was born with a passion for speed. His early years were spent at the Great Northern Railway where he learned the machinist’s trade. His next stint came in racing motorcycles where he competed in two Isle of Man Tourist Trophy races. W.O. Bentley then formed a company that imported French cars, but he was soon dissatisfied with their performance. Bentley made his mark again when he turned his engineering expertise to aircraft power where he was instrumental in assisting Rolls-Royce with their Eagle aircraft engine. When World War I ended, it was time for “W.O.” as he was called, to take his place in motoring history. Bentley Motors Limited was founded in 1919 and began production of a motorcar. Bentley’s cars were soon tearing up tracks all over Europe and quickly became the car to beat. Things were going well for Bentley and the future

looked bright, but the Great Depression took hold and the company was forced to sell out to Rolls-Royce. Thus began a stellar new life for Bentley as it was marketed by Rolls-Royce as “The Silent Sports Car.” Offered here is an excellent example of the Bentley heritage, a 1957 S1 Continental Sport Saloon Two-door. The S1 was produced from 1955 through 1959 and also represented the first postwar total redesign of the company’s production car. The S1 directly paralleled Rolls-Royce’s Silver Cloud with the exception that S1 was a more spirited performer. This S1 Sport Saloon is fitted with coachwork from Park Ward of London and has been in the possession of the same owner since 1966 when it was purchased at Templeton Motors in New York. Interestingly enough, records show that the Bentley was acquired on a trade in of a 1935 Mercedes Benz 500K.

This Bentley S1 was always serviced by Zumbachs of New York and presents today as an outstanding condition car that is remarkably preserved. Park Ward’s fine coachwork is beautifully enhanced by a lovely two-tone finish in Brilliant Silver and Smoke Gray. The interior is finished in rich red leather that gives it an air of distinction. All wood work is finished to Bentley’s high standards and carries the gleaming appearance of fine furniture. All original tools and books are accounted for and this Bentley’s ownership is fully documented. Rarity is the word for this Bentley as it is one of just six Park Ward Sport Saloons Two-Doors built with lefthand drive.


Ownership of a car as prestigious as a Bentley is certainly a thrill, but this Bentley Park Ward Sport Saloon takes the impressive opulence of a formal car to a whole new level. With its beautiful two-tone finish and gorgeous red leather interior this is a Bentley that has beauty and reverence all in the same package. No collection is compete without a car that exceeds all others in terms of class and this Bentley is just the car for the centerpiece of any collection.

sk the man who owns one.” That was the battle cry when James Ward Packard was asked about advertising for his Packard Motorcar Company. Many people did and the answer they got was favorable. Packard went on to build many great cars as they carved out a large percentage of the U.S. luxury market. Certainly the beauty of a Packard was outstanding straight from the factory, but many of the prominent coachbuilders of the day also made luxurious creations on Packard’s fine chassis. Indeed, companies like Rollston, Durham, and LeBaron all built gorgeous cars on Packard’s excellent chassis for the rich and famous. One such coachbuilder was Brunn and Company from Buffalo, New York. Brunn’s exquisite designs could be found on all of America’s best cars including Pierce Arrow, Reo, Ca-

dillac, Duesenberg, and Stearns-Knight. Brunn was even credited with saving Lincoln by redesigning their entire line-up in the company’s formative years. The marriage of Packard and Brunn was a natural, a fact that many in society did not overlook. So it was that Brunn built magnificent coachbuilt bodies for Riza Kahn, the Shah of Persia, King Carol and Queen Marie of Romania, King George of Greece, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Hollywood’s elite didn’t pass on Brunn’s fine work either as Leslie Carter, John Barrymore, Katharine Cornell and Katherine Hepburn all had a motorcar with coachwork by Brunn. Clearly if one wanted a place in society a Brunn body opened many doors. Offered here from the Chester Harwood collection of fine motorcars is perhaps one


of Brunn’s most spectacular cars, a 1939 Touring Cabriolet mounted on a Packard 1708 chassis. There is absolutely nothing simple about this stunning car from its immense size to its imposing presence. Brunn spared no expense in the creation of a car that was fit for both royalty and Hollywood movie stars. Starting at the front Packard’s imposing grille sets a tone of aristocracy as its tall and graceful swan hood ornament pears from above. Long bullet styled headlamps flank each side while an elegantly styled bumper ties it all together. The front fenders are long and sweep the entire front end. Twin side mounted spare tires are housed in hard

shell covers for the perfect classic car look from the Golden era of the motorcar. At the rear this Packard has a trunk that can easily hold a full set of luggage, but also features a folding rack for more storage. The excellence of Brunn’s coachwork is demonstrated in its landaulet styled rear roof that folds down over the rear seat and up front a set of “skylights” above the front windshield is a most unusual feature. This Brunn Packard rides on wide white wall tires and an immense 134-inch wheelbase that speaks of luxury and style. The finish is called Garnet Red and the top is finished in a matching vinyl cream. The interior is a work of art with fine wool broadcloth

and gold plated fixtures throughout. As the Brunn Touring Cabriolet was built as an “owner-driver” car a nice balance is achieved in the interior by having both front and rear compartments upholstered in the same fabric. If however a chauffeur is required a divider window is easily raised for privacy. All woodwork is burled Walnut and there is also extra seating with folding jump seats. Power for this CCCA recognized Full Classic comes from Packard’s mighty 473.3 cubic-inch V-12 rated at 175 horsepower, the last year for the V-12. The marvel of Packard’s fine engineering is clearly evident in the appearance of the engine compartment with all wiring

and plumbing nicely sorted. This Packard was fully restored and has recently been refreshed and presents as new. It also has its National AACA Senior Award as well as its CCCA Award which shows how correct and outstanding this cars restoration and significance really is.

The coachbuilt motorcar may be a thing of the past, but this Brunn Touring Cabriolet is a car that speaks to an era of opulence and a time when true craftsmen created the very best from the finest components. Brunn built just two Packard Touring Cabriolets in 1939 making this a rare car

indeed. It is also a car that carries prestige and elegance in its highest form. For a formal car that features the very best in a “Blue Chip� classic, this Packard Touring Cabriolet from Brunn can reside as the centerpiece of any world class collection of fine and rare motorcars.

efore the formal introduction of the Ferrari 355’s successor, there was no doubt that the replacement had big shoes to fill. The aging 355 was Ferrari’s best-selling car of all time and showed that Luca di Montezemolo was bringing the company back towards profitability and success after Enzo’s death. Introduced as a 1999 model, the 360 Modena launched a number of key updates that made the car more user-friendly but also kept the requisite Ferrari drama. Pininfarina’s design for the 360 was very different than the 355, trading sharp angles and pop-up headlights for smooth, flowing round lines. Moreover, the 360

saw the introduction of Ferrari’s now trademark clear engine cover, showcasing the design of that beautiful V-8 and its red heads. Everything mechanical about the 360 was new and improved. The aluminum space frame chassis was 40 percent stiffer than the 355’s and much lighter, despite an increase in overall size. Ferrari’s brandnew 3.6-liter engine only increased overall power by 25 horsepower from the 355, but the 360’s performance was increased due to a drastically lower power to weight ratio. Perhaps the most important change was the introduction of a removable panel in between the passenger bay and the engine compartment. Combined with


L O T

132


L O T

132


the placement of the 360’s timing belt at the front of the engine, this meant that belt changes could be completed with the engine in place, dramatically reducing service costs over previous mid-engine Ferraris. Unlike the 355, the 360 platform was originally designed to work as both a coupe and convertible. Ferrari designers strengthened other areas of the chassis to keep as much torsional rigidity as possible. As a result, the spider is just 130 pounds heavier than the coupe. On sunny days, the 360’s top folds out of sight in a mere 20 seconds, keeping the lines of the beautiful Pininfarina body unobstructed. The 2005 360 Modena Spider offered here is a fantastic example of Pinninfarina’s

and Ferrari’s vision of what a modern mid engine Ferrari should be and look like. Finished in the uncommon color combination black with tan leather interior. Full service records come with this car

along with all of its books and tools. With a recent full service and only 14,000 miles from new, this 360 is immaculate and ready for the open road or for a collection of fine Italian sports cars.

power. Top speed for the 100-6 was rated at 106 mph, which was not only good enough for the open road, but easily made a good impression at the race track as well. The 100-6 offered here is a 1958 100-6 that wears a wonderful restoration that is beautiful and correct down to the smallest details.  Finished in Healey’s two tone Red and black paint scheme this beautiful car features all of the fine attributes that the 100-6 is known for.  A streamlined design is perfectly mounted on its 92-inch wheelbase.  On the inside the classic lay out of the British sports car is nicely displayed on this example with all gauges easy to read and all instrumentation perfectly laid out in what could best be described

as real “driver’s car.” The standard wire wheels round out this classic roadster’s appearance and the Austin-Healey badge rides proudly above the front grille. The 100-6 was succeeded by the last of the “Big Healeys,” the Mk 3000.  The three generations of these cars are some of the best sports cars to ever grace the road.  For spirited driving on a long summer day, this 100-6 is ready for touring of any distance or showing in the finest shows.

n April 1951 at the first international West German auto show in Frankfurt, Mercedes introduced two new six cylinder models, the 2.2 liter 220 and the 3 liter 300 which was Daimler Benz’s first post war luxury car. Haspel’s directive to engineer Karl Wilfort and his team had been brief and to the point, the car’s styling was to be modern but the Mercedes radiator grille had to be retained. In an automotive era when “all-new” often meant the elimination of tradition, Haspel’s decision to retain the iconic Mercedes grille was pivotal and was a design that was kept for many years after and because of this a Mercedes has remained unmistakably a Mercedes. “The terrific, new high performance job that has the European press agog” said the American magazine Speed Age about the new Mercedes 300. Even Britain’s The Motor called it definitely the sensation of

all the auto shows and certainly worthy of this honor. It was the largest and fastest automobile yet introduced to the post war Germany and the 300 reigned for more than a decade more holding its title. The motorcar offered is an exquisite example of the incredibly styled and engineered 300D convertible sedan that is just out of a very prominent collection. Powered by the powerful 3 liter six cylinder overhead cam engine with dual downdraft carburetors paired with a four speed manual transmission, this car is fast and comfortable to drive. Although it wears an older restoration, it shows incredibly well and has not aged a bit. Finished in a soft navy blue with a grey leather interior and a dark blue convertible top, this is possibly the nicest color combination that could have been given to the great 300. The

he roots of Fiat span more than 100 years of automotive innovation and engineering achievements. The company got its start in 1899 when Giovanni Agnelli gathered several investors together and founded the Italian Factory of Turin in 1899. The name was changed to Fiat in 1906 and Agnelli guided his company until his death in 1945. The early years were filled with many milestones as Fiat built its first truck in 1903 and exported their first car to the United States in 1908. The company also built quite a reputation on the race track and even manufactured an aircraft engine. In just one decade Fiat had become the largest automobile company in Italy and a U.S. plant was opened in Poughkeepsie, New York in 1910. Owning a Fiat at the time was a clear sign of social status as they were not inexpensive cars. While Henry’s Model T could be had for a mere $525, a Fiat started at $4,000 and could easily run close to $7,000 with custom coachwork. Not only were Fiat’s cars a mark of social status and beauty, but their engineering was superb. A Fiat was built to standards that were only attained by such names as Napier and Rolls-Royce. Indeed, the frame of a Fiat could support several thousand pounds and the engine was massive with engineering advances that were way ahead of its time. Sadly, World War I caused Fiat to close its Poughkeepsie fac-

tory in 1917, but not before it turned out some amazing cars. Offered here is a survivor from the golden era of Fiat’s brief but stellar U.S. history, a 1912 Tipo 56 Touring with fantastic provenance with previous ownership of Earl Snodgrass and Jim Adams. A very impressive car in photos, but literally has to be seen to be believed. The incredible size, width, and breadth of this large touring car can only be appreciated in person. This amazing car carries the same features of a large Thomas Flyer, Locomobile or Pierce Arrow 66 of the day, but the brass badge up front lets the world know that this is a Fiat. As a touring car form the Golden Age, the elegance of this Fiat cannot be underestimated. Starting at the front a tubular brass bumper is simple yet stylish and is a perfect match for the large brass headlamps. A tall and imposing brass radiator carries the Fiat name and more brass work is found at the cowl were lanterns, horns, and mirrors with beveled glass add just the right touch of elegance against beautiful work. Full step running boards underlie the huge body with an elegantly styled wood tool box on the left while the right side carries a twin set of spare tires. Despite its size the entry doors are small and simply designed for ease of entry and exit. No touring car is

complete without exterior storage and this Type 56 carries a black leather trunk that features plenty of room and also carries the Fiat name. Stepping into this car is like stepping back through the pages of time with a venerable sea of fine leather, beautiful carpet, and exquisite wood work that is reminiscent of the finest furniture. The rear seat features finely bolstered and pleated seat cushions with folding jump seats for extra passengers. The driver’s compartment features a fine array of brass gauges, dual glove boxes, and finely finished wood work. Most impressive is a large steering wheel with fuel and spark


advance controls and the combination of polished brass and wood makes for an artwork-like presentation. Clearly a family of social status demanded only the best and the luxurious interior of this Fiat delivered on all counts. If one’s social status was determined by the number of cylinders in their motorcar during the early days, the Fiat outshined a number of its competitors with a huge six-cylinder engine that really delivered 75 horsepower paired with a four speed gearbox. Despite this being an early motorcar, the engineering behind Fiat’s large inline six is surpassed only by its beauty. Indeed, all fittings are highly polished and all wiring, gearing, and plumbing are neatly sorted in a way that makes the engine compartment an object of beauty. This Tipo 56 Touring has also undergone a few refinements that contribute to its drivability and safety. A modern clutch was fitted in the 1990s that makes shifting a breeze and hydraulic brakes were also fitted for safety as well

as an extra radiator and electric fans for cooling making this car the ultimate tour car. This Fiat’s provenance has been established back to the 1950s. It has been owned by many distinguished collectors and has also been driven on many tours with complete reliability. It has also been displayed by invitation at Pebble Beach and the Concourso Italiano. The chance

to own a car as rare as a U.S. built Fiat is almost as rare as the car itself. For the very best in the world of collector cars this is an example that has few equals. With its impressive size, abundance of power, and dedication to authenticity, this is a car that embodies the true spirit of the early days of motoring and is a fine addition to any world class collection of investment grade motorcars.

enry Ford’s early years were filled with experimentation on all levels. Not only was he searching for new and different manufacturing techniques, but he was also building several different motorcars in search of the absolute best. With the Model T still a few years away, Ford offered the Model N in 1906 and this gave way to a more refined version called the Model R. The Model R was a good car, but just a few months later Ford again refined it and renamed it the Model S. Thus, for a brief period of time from April of 1907 to August of the same year the Model R was Ford’s great little car. Ford continued to offer several different cars until the Model T replaced them all in October of 1908. The Ford Model R offered here is a wonderful original car that wears an older restoration, but still retaining the cars amazing original condition and represents all of the charming attributes of an early

hen it comes to performance cars, no country built faster cars than Italy. The pages of competition motorsports are bookmarked by great cars from Ferrari, Maserati, Cistalia, Lamborghini, Fiat and of course Alfa Romeo. Indeed, the spirit of competition was solidified as rubber met the pavement on tracks like Le Mans, Brooklands, and the Mille Miglia. Of course, the early years saw little in the way of aerodynamics as huge horsepower cars with tall wheels thundered their way around the track, but by the 1930s sleek bodies began to make their appearance. In 1930, Alfa Romeo introduced a car that had style as well as amazing performance: the 4th series 6C 1750 which introduced the Gran Sport with a larger supercharger compared to the previous Super Sport of 1929. The 1750 quickly gained a reputation for winning, with wins at great races such as the Mille Miglia, the Belgian G.P at Spa and the Tourist Trophy race in Ireland. Before there was Ferrari there was Scuderia Ferrari where Enzo raced for Alfa and the 1750 gave him the beginnings of his racing success. The Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS was a car that was ahead of its time in many ways and

in the present day these cars represent the very foundation of the European sports car. The Alfa 1750 was also a favorite of several of Europe’s prominent coachbuilders of the day with James Young, Pininfarina, and Zagato all building bodies on the 1750. Of all of these famous coachbuilders, the Carrozzeria Castagna Company from Milan made what is perhaps one of the most stylish and expensive designs of all. With a history going back to the 1800s, Castagna built bodies for the first Benz Quadricycles, Lancia, Isotta-Fraschini, and even the great Duesenberg. Born with a pedigree and honed with precision mechanicals, the Alfa 1750 was a special car when built, and is even more distinct in the present day. Alfa’s original configuration of the 6C was the 1500 and was built until 1928 when a more powerful 6C was introduced in 1929 called the 1750. The refinement that went into the 1750 was amazing with no less than six versions built between 1929 and 1933. One of those variants was the Gran Sport version that featured a double overhead cam inline six that made it a stellar performer. With its sleek design and excellent road manners, the Alfa Romeo 1750 was a car like no other.

Offered here is perhaps the finest examples of the 1750 in existence: a 1933 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport with coachwork by Castagna. Finished in gleaming black and cream, this is the eighth example built bearing production number 37. The documentation on this rare car goes back to the factory when the chassis received its bespoke bodywork at the legendary works of Carrozzeria Castagna in Milan, Italy. After completion it was then sold to Major Kyle Mouey in England. Major Mouey must have enjoyed his Alfa very much as he kept the car for the next 40 years. It then went to a Dr. Peter Burgess, who had it shipped to Australia in 1975 where it saw regular use until 1986, when it was cosmetically restored and the original cream and black

two-tone color combination was changed in favor of the Italian national racing color of red. The engine was also rebuilt by Alfa specialists Dickson & Plikington. This Alfa was then sold to Mrs. Diana Gaze, who used it regularly for vintage events. As if traveling between the continents wasn’t enough this Alfa was then sold to a Brazilian collector in 1997 where it stayed for a decade before finding its current owner in the Netherlands in 2008. It was then that the new owner decided to return the car back to its exact original factory specifications with a fresh restoration, including the unique twotone color scheme. So intense was the passion for originality that an original

Memini carburetor was located and used in the restoration. The result is the finest Alfa Romeo 6C1750 Gran Sport Cabriolet in existence. The classic design and stunning appearance of this fine Italian marque is superb in every way. A tall and narrow grille is flanked by two color-keyed headlamps, its two-tone paint is split perfectly along the lateral body line and it carries its twin spare wheels at the rear which gives that timeless sporty and race ready Alfa look. The interior is pure fine Italian art work with stunning wood work and all gauges are center mounted. The upholstery features fine black leather and all trim is finished in fine chrome. Power for this 1750 Gran Sport comes from a 1752 cc


dual overhead cam inline six rated at 102 horsepower. The look and overall presentation of this engine compartment is immaculate and perfectly detailed and all wiring and plumbing is properly sorted. The Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 is a car of legendary status. So successful was the 1750 that it won every major racing event it entered in 1929 and many in

following years. This included the Grand Prix events of Belgium, Spain, Monza, and Tunis. This 6C 1970 is also eligible for many vintage events including the Mille Miglia and the chance to own one with coachwork by Castagna is as rare as the car itself. The restoration of this 1750 is impeccable and would stand tall on any concours show field including the great Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. For the finest in collector motorcars of

significance, provenance, rarity, and legendary status, this 6C 1750 Gran Sport with its magnificent coachwork is ready to stand as the absolute center piece of any world class collection.

mong the great cars of the Chester Harwood collection are some of the finest from Packard, Lincoln and Rolls Royce. This 1935 Rolls Royce 20/25 offered here from the Chester Harwood collection wasn’t just any Rolls and as in the case with all prewar Rolls-Royces the body was coachbuilt.  For this 20/25, the body was built by one of England’s finest, Windovers.  As a prominent coachbuilder with a global network, Windovers had showrooms in London, Paris, Bombay, and Sydney.  Their works were located in Manchester, Huntingdon, and North London.  With roots going back to making saddles in the 16th century, Windovers was a company that had vast experience in the art of coachbuilding.  So well trained were the artisans of Windovers that the company was still maintaining the carriages of the Royal livery well into the 1950s.

The Chester Harwood Rolls-Royce 20/25 has been impeccably maintained and looks absolutely splendid in two-tone blue. As a formal sedan, the design element of Windover’s graceful and elegant lines are clearly evident from any angle.  Long and sweeping fenders trail gracefully into the running boards where the lines are picked up again by styled rear fenders and an integral rear boot completes its elegant appearance.  Both front and rear doors are center hinged at the “B” pillar for a classic and formal look.  All of its graceful lines are nicely complemented by a set of wide white wall tires with full wheel covers that are colored keyed to the body.  Most impressive is the dark blue inset of the sides while the upper body and fenders are finished in a lovely sky blue.  The elegance of the two tone paint directly highlights Windover’s elegant design work.

The interior of this fine motorcar is all one would expect from a Rolls-Royce with fine black leather up front and red corduroy upholstery in the rear. All wood work in this 20/25 presents in fine condition and all upholstery is clean and nicely detailed.  Sitting behind the wheel of this magnificent car gives one the feeling of rarity, power, and prestige.  Power for the 20/25 comes from Rolls-Royce’s 3.7 liter inline push rod six cylinder that is reliable and easy to service.  The engine compartment is neat, tidy, and clean. Rolls-Royce has never been a producer of mass built production cars as each one receives the care and precision that only a

hand-built work of art could. The 20/25 was in production from 1929 through 1936 and in that time just 3,827 were built.  This example with its beautifully crafted Windover’s coachwork and timeless elegance is a car that carries the RollsRoyce tradition of superior craftsmanship with pride.  The Chester Harwood collection features many great cars, but this 20/25 is a wonderful car and certainly more than ready for touring of any distance or for the concours show field.

n the very beginnings of the motorcar there were many manufacturers worldwide trying to get off the ground with their idea of how an automobile should be. While the Americans were just beginning to understand the automobile, the Europeans were speeding down their roads in big horsepower four cylinder monsters. The Germans had Mercedes, the Italians had Fiat and the French had Darracq, Panhard et Levassor, Renault and of course Barrè. Barrè was a manufacturer established by Gaston Barre at Niort in 1900, although their first automobile was actually unveiled one year earlier at the Paris auto show in 1899 featuring a Gallardet engine. Several

aspects of Barrè’s business made it stand out from many of its larger French competitors, primarily by using components made by outside specialist suppliers, creating an assemblage of the best and most cutting edge components to create the best car that was technologically possible at the time. During the first half decade of the 20th century, Barrè began to use engines supplied to them by Aster, Buchet and Dedion Bouton and rather than tooling up to produce and assemble their own axles, gears and other principle components, Barrè had them supplied to them by outside manufacturers who were equipped to produce the parts that were needed. Many of

Barrè’s cars were built to special order with special horsepower, coachwork and wheelbase like the wonderful original example offered here.

The quality of this car equals that of the other great cars of the time with a steel ladder type frame, coil ignition, and a 16 horsepower engine that equals the performance of a Panhard et Levassor,


a De Dietrich or a Renault of Pre-1905 vintage. Although the car was repainted sometime in the 1940’s, it has a great old patina and is extremely original, still retaining its original semi-racer coachwork and beautiful mechanicals including its outstanding brass belt driven oiler and outstanding early lamps. Owned by a collector in France for a very long time, this car would be an incredible addition to any important car collection or would be an amazing car to drive on the London to Brighton. L O T

he early 1950s gave rise to some of the most dramatic car designs ever seen on the American road as all of Detroit’s car companies were paying more attention to styling than ever before. Bulbous fenders that bolted to the body were gone and a more streamlined look was taking hold. Thanks to the efforts of men like Harley Earl, the American car was also getting longer and lower than it ever did before. This was no more evident than in Buick’s fine offering of cars for 1951. World War II was becoming a distant memory and Buick was moving forward with some great cars that were showing everyone else the path to the future. Buick offered several models for 1951, but none were more glamorous as the top-of-the-line Roadmaster Convertible.

Offered here is a jewel from the Chester Harwood collection in the form of an impeccably restored 1951 Buick Roadmaster convertible. As Buick’s best car for 1951, this convertible speaks volumes in terms of what American luxury looked like in the early 1950s. Finished in Buick’s “Cloudmist” Gray this stunning car has been beautifully restored and looks today as it did back in 1951. The Roadmaster had no shortage of chrome and this example carries its massive front bumper with elegance and style. As Buick’s finest, it also has four ventiports on the side while other Buicks had only three. A rocket inspired hood ornament leads the way and Buick’s unique double opening hood from either side makes maintenance a snap. The X in the VIN code of this Roadmaster denotes that it carries a power top, power seats, and power windows. The

Roadmaster convertible also came from the factory with leather interior and this example has been nicely restored with a two-tone red and white. Two large bench seats provide more than enough comfort for six passengers and a beautifully designed dashboard carries just a hint of the emerging jet era of the day. Power for this Buick comes from Buick’s 320.2 cubicinch overhead valve “Fireball” inline eight cylinder rated at 152 horsepower. The engine compartment is clean and well-


sorted. Power reaches the rear wheels through Buick’s Dynaflow two-speed automatic transmission. There is nothing small about Buick’s Roadmaster for 1951. Riding on a 121inch wheelbase and weighing in at a hefty 4,395 pounds, the Roadmaster was a car that announced its arrival from any distance. It also sold for an astounding retail price of $3,453 when 35 cents bought a cheeseburger and a vanilla shake. With its beautiful restoration and extravagance beyond compare, this 1951 Buick Roadmaster is a car that truly exemplifies the American luxury convertible.

mong the greats of Italian Grand Touring cars the name Maserati stands alone as the master of sports cars. From its very beginning in 1914 brothers Alfieri, Carlo, and Ettore Maserati were involved in motorsports winning many races and rallies in the early days of the motorcar. This was a day when men drove without fear in open wheel cars that defied death with every lap. Their company mascot also provided quite an image as the trident spear of Neptune represented strength and vigor, both attributes of a powerful sports car. In 1957, Maserati brought the art of Grand Touring to a new level with the introduction of the 3500 GT. Not only did the 3500 GT possess stellar performance, but it also featured luxury to boot. Production was slow at first, but took off when enthusiasts discovered the poten-

tial of the 3500. The 3500 evolved into the Sebring for 1962 and it was now one of the most refined Grand Touring cars in the world. Most had thought that Maserati had reached the pinnacle of design with the Sebring, but a Series II car was introduced in 1965 that perfected it beyond what anyone thought possible. A new headlamp design, modernized bumpers, redesigned bumpers, and new side grilles gave the Sebring Series II a more touch of class and elegance to go with its brute power. The 1966 Maserati Sebring Series II offered here has been fully restored to factory condition and now presents as it did in 1966. It just arrived here from Switzerland and is now ready for its first U.S. owner. It has had just two owners from new and retains all of its documentation with a

history that is accounted for. The Sebring II looks great in any color, but none better than gleaming silver. The interior is upholstered in black with red carpeting in an attractive and true “driver’s environment.” A real wood steering sets the tone with the Maserati trident logo proudly displayed in the center. Power for this Sebring II comes from Maserati’s dual overhead cam inline six cylinder rated at 265 horsepower; more than enough for modern highway speeds and beyond. The engine compartment is clean and well sorted and also carries with it a rare design quality that’s seldom seen in any car. This Sebring II rides on Boranni wire wheels that gives it just the right look for a European sports car. Maserati has always had a reputation for building fine sports cars there have


even been a few luxury cars as well. In the present day that tradition continues with a full line-up of performance sports cars like the Granturismo, the Ghibli, the Quattroporte, and even the new SUV styled Levante. This Sebring II with is excellent restoration and Grand Touring heritage is a car that defines the very roots of Maserati’s performance. No collection is complete without a fine Italian GT sports car and this Sebring can easily serve as the crown jewel of any collection.

udson took the U.S. auto industry by storm in 1948 with the introduction of the streamlined “stepdown” design for its entire model range. One of the first cars to be advertised on television, the new model was only 60 inches high and its center of gravity correspondingly very low. The Pacemaker, Super and Commodore range was expanded to include the famous 308-cubic inch Hornet in 1951, which would dominate NASCAR so incredibly (winning 40 of 48 stock car races in 1952) that it would eventually be banned. The basic shape of the step-down Hudson’s endured for six years, until 1954, when the company merged with Nash to

form American Motors. Convertible Hudson’s from this period are quite rare and unmistakable, with their deep header across the windshield designed to simplify the top mechanism and of course their iconic “step down” design. The motorcar on offer is a very nice original example of the rare and very sought after “step down” Hudson commodore convertible. Finished in light blue with a very well matched dark blue interior, this car is as sharp as they come. It wears an older cosmetic restoration, but the car is overall a very good original car that hasn’t been tampered with. The most exciting

feature of this car is what is hiding under the hood. The power for this car comes from a 262 cubic inch L-head engine paired with an automatic transmission. This particular Commodore convertible has the rarely seen “Twin H Power” option which is all kinds of fun. The twin downdraft carburetors bump the horsepower a bit from an average commodore and gives the car that same sound and feel the Nascar Hornets had on the track. For a late 1940’s design, the “step down” Hudson’s were way ahead of their time. This car is just out of a great collection and is now ready to be enjoyed by a new owner and shown as these Commodore convertibles are very rarely seen, especially with the exciting “twin H power” option.

ouis Delage was a renowned engineer and automotive designer working for Peugeot early on in the 20th century and making parts for other firms such as De Dion-Bouton. Delage & Cie was founded in 1905 and although starting small, Delage quickly proved that his company could be a serious firm in the automotive industry. By 1912 the Delage company had grown considerably and proved to be very successful on the Grand Prix circuit around Europe. Delage targeted the upper end of the automotive market for his road cars aiming to build bigger and higher quality cars than his competitors. So, they began producing a more powerful six-cylinder car, with a 2.5-liter engine designed by engineer Arthur-Leon Michelat which was built in-house at Delage. The six-cylinder cars evolved over the years to come and ultimately evolved into the DR model which was introduced in 1927. The

DR’s had an L-head unit with a Ricardo-type cylinder head; this engine was offered in two displacements, a 2177cc engine and the larger 2516cc version. The DR would become one of the best-selling Delage automobiles of all time. The Dr-70 offered here, chassis no. 29663, a 1929 model that was exported to Australia in 1930 as a completed, right hand drive configured chassis. It was fitted with the larger 2,516cc six-cylinder Delage engine. Once in Australia, the new chassis was fitted by Melbourne-based coachbuilders, James Flood & Co. with a lightweight, sporting open tourer body, the same as seen on the car today. An attractive design, the Delage features a low, vee’d windshield, space for a taller driver and having a similar sporty appearance of a Vandenplas bodied Bentley of the same time period.

Chassis no. 29663 is believed to have been owned by a Mr. Vanderkelen, a consul for Belgium until 1938, after which time it passed through a few other owners before being acquired by a Mr. Ian de Beuzeville in the 1960’s. During Mr. de Beuzeville’s ownership the Delage was treated to a restoration, and would later be used extensively on tours and rallies by him. Around 2004, the car was imported to the United Kingdom, before joining a Spanish collection around 2007 and has now spent a few years in the U.S. where it now is ready for a new owner either in the U.S. or abroad. Finished in a very suitable British racing green with black fenders, the Delage looks sporty and correct for the period. Showing a nicely aged older restoration, the green interior shows a nice patina that invites further use. Fitted with many

period performance upgrades such as headlight and radiator stone guards, black knock off wire wheels on black wall tires, and a racing wooden steering wheel, the Delage has handsome looks and sporting intentions. Delage always produced an extremely high quality sporty car from its very beginnings in 1905 all the way to its demise in 1954. The D6 and D8 series cars came a short while after the DR was introduced and also became extremely popular models, but they owe their success to the DR-70. This is an extremely handsome, sporty and high quality French car that can be shown, rallied or driven leisurely. No matter where or how this car is driven, it will always be a powerful 6 cylinder French tourer as Louis Delage originally intended his cars to be.

n the early 1950’s it was a common practice for amateur race driver s to create their own specials to compete with the professionally engineered factory racers. But, of all the specials that were created during the early 1950’s, perhaps the most incredible and well-engineered example was Tommy Sopwith’s “Sphinx”. Tommy Sopwith was the 21 year old son of Sir Thomas Sopwith who was the chairman of Hawker Siddeley, Tommy was also employed at Armstrong Siddeley in the development department at the time. The Sphinx is a 1954 Allard J2R no. 3405, with only six other J2R’s ever built, ordered by Sopwith and fitted with a 3.4 liter Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire engine. He then had an unbelievable custom aluminum body made and fitted on the car giving it an incredible look of a cross between an Aston Martin DBR1 and a Jaguar C Type. The Armstong Siddeley power plant may have been an odd choice for an engine, but more power was obtained by the fitting of a high-lift camshaft, three double-choke Weber car-

buretors and a free-flowing six branch exhaust system. The crankshaft was specially designed to withstand the increased power output (227bhp at 5100rpm), the car being run on100-octane petrol which could withstand the 9.5:1 compression ratio. The Sphinx was successful in four races in 1954 against cars such as Jaguar C types and XK120’s among many others. The Sphinx made its debut at Goodwood on March 27th, 1954 winning second place to a Jaguar XK120 C in one race. The team backing Sopwith’s Sphinx was called the “Equipe Endevor “named after his father’s racing Yachts which competed in the America Cup Race in the 1930’s, although he was not an official sponsor of Tommy and the Sphinx because a race team was hardly Armstrong Siddeleys style, staff from the Armstrong Siddeley factory devoted their spare time to working on the car. After debuting at BARC Goodwood, the Sphinx ran in many other races in 1954 including: National Castle Comb, British

Empire Trophy, National Silverstone, Ibsley, National Davidstow, National Snetterton, Snetterton International and Goodwood International , racing in a total of 17 races in the 1954 season, placing 1st in four races, once at Silverstone, once at Snetterton, and twice at Davidstow. After the 1954 season, Sopwith decided to move on to other cars and retired the Sphinx. Remember that this was a time when major advances were being made by major firms in automotive racing such as Mercedes Benz, Jaguar and Aston Martin, so in consequence the Sphinx soon faded from the scene. In the late 1950’s Sopwith sold the Sphinx to race driver Brian Croot without the Sapphire engine. Croot fitted the Sphinx with a race prepared 3.8 liter Jaguar twin cam 6 cylinder engine with high lift cam shafts and Webber carburetors and successfully raced the car along with his C-Type Jaguar in venues such as Silverstone, Goodwood, Brands Hatch,

Oulton Park, Prescott, Shelsley Walsh and many more until the late 1960s when he and the cars retired and the Sphinx once again disappeared from the public eye. Today, incredibly, the Sphinx resurfaced in France, in an estate, where it was rumored for many years the car had gone and is now on offer for the first time since its disappearance after the end of Brian Croots ownership in the 1960’s. It wears an old restoration performed by the previous owner retaining a great patina that an amazingly seasoned race car should have. With its incredible racing documentation back to day one, the Sphinx is once again ready to be appreciated in a great sports car collection and enjoyed by the public as it once was and for the legend it has become after all of these years. The “Sopwith Sphinx” has returned.

O Well-Known History back to 1922 First Mass Produced Motorcar Eligible for London to Brighton Run

Estimate

$275,000 - $350,000

f all of the inventions that have shaped the way that we live, none has had more experimentation, refinement, or variety more than the motorcar. Indeed, the dawn of the motor age saw many great men working with this newfangled invention all over the world.  Henry Ford was quietly working on his Quadricycle while the Stevens-Duryea Company actually had a running car on the streets of Springfield, Massachusetts in 1895.  On the other side of the pond Karl Benz was making his way with several designs that were capable of moving on their own, but in 1894 Benz introduced the Velocipede or “Velo.”  The Velo was a marvel of design and proved quite reliable.  Benz built 67 Velos in 1894 making it the first mass produced car in the world.  Production increased to 134 Velos in 1895 and before production ended in 1902 just over 1200 were built.  In terms of historical importance the Velo is to this very day the car that started a movement in technology that changed the course of history.         

Offered here is a fine example of this most significant motorcar, an 1896 Velo that was sold new in Italy and was retained by one owner from 1922 to 1972 and then retained by the next owner who kept it to the present day. All of this is chronicled with this Velo including a photo from 1922 that shows it with the second owner.  Although from 1896, this Velo is a remarkably preserved car and still retains its original body and coach lamps from the factory.  Its serial number is stamped into the wood and its finish shows a patina that only the hands of time could create.  The intricate design of Karl Benz’s work is nicely displayed in this time piece with curved fenders at the rear and buckboard style seating with a rear facing single seat mounted in the forward body.  Power comes from a one liter single cylinder engine rated at 1.5 horsepower that was able to propel the Velo to an astounding 15 mph, a comparable speed to the average horse of the day.  This Velo runs and drives perfectly and is also eligible for the London to Brighton Run, which just happens to have Benz as its featured marque for 2016.

The Velo is car that literally solidified the motorcar’s place in society. Many had tried, but Karl Benz found a way to mass produce a reliable means of transportation in a world where the animal had reigned supreme for thousands of years.  The Velo also participated in the world’s first automobile race.  Indeed, the Paris-Rouen race of 1984 was not run for speed, but rather for endurance.  The race was filled with the likes of Panhard-Levassors and Peugeots, but the Velo managed a respectable 5th place finish.  This Velo from 1896 represents a landmark development in the technology of the motorcar and it is certainly an historic and exciting addition to any collection of epic motorcars.

errari has never been a stranger to the world of speed. Indeed, Enzo Ferrari’s mission in life was to create the fastest cars in the world, something he did over and over again at all of the world’s fastest race tracks. In the 1960s, Ferrari began to make steps toward refining their products with cars like the 250 GT Lusso. The era of Grand Touring cars from Ferrari had arrived and not only were they fast, but comfortable as well. In 1994, Ferrari reached the pinnacle of comfortable driving at high speed with the introduction of the F355. Its mid-engine, rear wheel

drive platform made for a car that was a true “driver’s car” with power to spare and a sleek design that made it an aerodynamic masterpiece. In fact, Ferrari was so obsessed with challenging the wind that the F355 spent over 1,300 hours of wind tunnel testing in order to achieve the perfect slip stream design. Offered here is an outstanding example of this most iconic car from Ferrari, a 1995 F355 finished in famous Ferrari Rosso Corsa Red. This F355 recently emerged from a private collection where it had been

well cared for. It was recently serviced and is now ready for the open road once again. The paint on this Ferrari is excellent, the rims shine, and the tires have several thousand miles of tread life left. Inside this F355 is a true driver’s environment with fine Connolly leather, plush carpeting, and seats that are actually asymmetrically

fitted with the driver’s side being closer to the centerline than the passenger side. Lifting the hood reveals Ferrari’s 3.5 liter dual overhead cam V-8 that cranks out an amazing 380 horsepower. The engine compartment on this F355 is clean and well sorted and is indeed as nice to look at as the car itself. Performance figures for

the F355 are impressive with a 0-60 time of just 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph. Overall, this F355 is a car that turns heads wherever it goes and would be a great addition to any world class collection of fine sports cars.

acing has been a part of many manufactures of the motorcar. While the mundane sedans and family haulers certainly make the profits, it’s the racecars with their sleek styling and powerful engines that create the brand image that so many car builders like to advertise. As one of the oldest car builders in the world, Alfa Romeo is no stranger to the world of competitive motorsports. The genesis of Alfa Romeo got its start in 1906 as the Societa Anonima Italiana Darracq or SAID. Sales were slow and in 1910 the name was changed to Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili or ALFA. Alfa wasted no time in testing their cars on the track and the company had two entries in the 1911 Targo Florio and in 1914 Alfa built a Grand Prix car that was highly advanced for its day. It was with this foundation that Alfa created some of the best sports and competition cars known. Their racing program was going nicely with wins on every European track, but in 1927 Alfa created a car so special that it became an icon of motorsports. The 6 cylinder twin cam created by engeneer Jano in 1928 would prove to be so successful that the basic design remained competitive on European race tracks for years to come.

Alfa built several variants of the 6C during its production run and the example offered here is one of the greatest of all, a 1939 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Sport Berlinetta. According to Angelo Tito Anselmi’s authoritive book on the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500, there were only five rolling chassis of the 3000 mm wheelbase built with Touring Superleggera coachwork in 1939 and this example is number one. Carrozzeria Touring built this aluminum body, carried no less than three patents and was formally known as Touring design number 1137. The development of this 6C 2500 was carefully planned as several engines were built to exploit the potential of this aerodynamic design. Only few of these engines were built with a triple carburetor set-up, special high lift camshafts, 8:1 compression and race tuning making 125 horsepower as opposed to the standard Sport model which only made 95 horsepower. The example offered here carries the SS plate in the engine compartment that identifies it as an ultra-rare early tri-powered Sport model of which very few were built before World War II. With its race tuned engine the 6C 2500 was cataloged as Alfa’s fastest production car available.

The 6C 2500 offered here carries an interesting history and is well traveled. Little is known of its original owner, but records do show it was found in Colorado in the 1970s and was sold to master craftsman and well-known restoration expert Steve Tillack in the 1980s. It was then sold through the former Deventer Car Museum to a Dutch collector in the 1990’s. At that time it was a well-used rally car and actually participated in several events. It was then acquired by its present owner in 2006 who commissioned a full and authentic restoration of this most important piece of Alfa’s performance history. The restoration work was undertaken at the shops of the Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Company in Terrazzano di Rho, Italy. The restoration performed by the expert craftsman returned this Alfa to it factory correct and original splendor and it presents today as it did in 1939. Its resurrection was also an international


effort with many mechanical components being refurbished in the Netherlands. The end result is a significant example of Italian design and Alfa Romeo engineering that stands as a testament to one of the finest sports cars in history. In his book “Carrozzeria Touring” by the respected Carlo Felice Bianchi Anderloni, he described this 6C 2500 as “one of the most desirable of its period.”

The Alfa Romeo 6C is a car that is legendary and its development from the first 1500 model in 1927 to the 3000 in 1954 is a story of steady refinement that created one of the world’s great supercars. Truly, Alfa’s 6C has it all; performance that was unmatched in its day, coach built bodies that were the most aerodynamic in the world, and a race history with legendary triumphs at the best tracks all

over the globe makes an Alfa 6C a blue chip investor grade motorcar. This Alfa 6C 2500 comes complete with its Touring Certificate and more than 200 photos of its documented restoration. With its beautiful restoration and fine coach work by Carrozzeria Touring, this Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Sport Berlinetta is a car that will reign supreme as the centerpiece of any world class collection.

he Porsche name needs no introduction in the world of motorsports. From the very beginning Ferdinand Porsche was a man of talent and vision who built great cars like the 356 and the 550. In 1963, Porsche introduced what arguably would become one of the greatest sports cars ever built, the 911. The 911 turned out to be one of the most versatile platforms ever engineered with variants in the form of the 912. The 930, the 964, and the 993 to name a few. In the present day the 918 is a Porsche hybrid that cranks out an astounding 608 horsepower coupled with twin electric motors that deliver an addition 279 ponies. Through it all the Porsche name has remained steadfast in delivering performance sports cars that are some of the fastest in the world.

Offered here to the astute collector of fine Porsche performance cars is a rare opportunity to own a pristine example of this company’s history in the form of a 1977 930 Turbo 3.0 liter Carrera. The 3.0 liter turbo cars were produced for only three years from 1975 until 1977 and in the 1977 model year Porsche produced just 717 USA spec Turbos, most of which have either been heavily modified for racing or lost over time. This Carrera is from the Chester Harwood collection and has just 36,000 miles from new. It has been owned in the collection since 1980 and was always maintained to the highest standards. Finished in Porsche’s Rally Yellow, it makes a dramatic performance statement with factory flared wheel arches and an oversized “whale tail” rear spoiler. This is not a restored car, but is a remarkably preserved example with original paint still

intact. The interior is just as it came from the factory with the original upholstery still intact and features sport seats. The 930 was always known as a “driver’s car” and this one is no exception. It’s also a nicely optioned 930 with factory air-conditioning, a sunroof and its original paint color of yellow of which only a few were ordered in. Power for this 930 comes from a 3 liter turbo charged single overhead cam flat six that generates 245 horsepower. Power reaches the rear wheels through a fourspeed manual transmission and braking is precise with ventilated discs all around. This 930 rides on its factory Fuchs rims with ultra-wide tires for excellent handling. The remarkably preserved condition of this 930 is clearly demonstrated in the fact that it still retains all of its factory books and tools

and also has its Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche. The 911 was and remains Porsche’s most successful car. As the first turbo charged version of the 911, the 930 brought it to a whole new level of performance. As tested from the factory, the 930 Turbo Carrera had a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds with a top speed of 153 mph. This example with its pristine preservation could very well be the best of this classic sports car from one of the world’s leaders of fine engineering and certainly deserves a place in any performance car collection. This is a very rare opportunity to own an extremely low production US delivery Porsche 3.0 liter turbo from a long time ownership.

n the 1950s, European racing was at its height with companies like Ferrari, Mercedes Benz, Maserati, and Jaguar vying for first place at tracks all over the continent. Competition was fierce as these cars performed spectacular feats and created legendary stories that are still talked of today. The European racing circuit of the 1950s was a time like no other as these great cars did battle at tracks like Le Mans, Nürburgring, and Silverstone. It was against this back drop that one of Italy’s oldest car companies built their entry into the world of competitive motorsports. Indeed, Fiat was certainly preoccupied with supplying cars to the motoring public, but that didn’t mean that they couldn’t sidetrack into a racing venture. The result of their efforts was the 8V, a car of legendary status that not only kept pace with the great Ferraris and Jaguars of the day, but also took home its fair share of victories. So dominant was the 8V that even though production ended in 1955 it went on to win the Italian 2-litre GT championship all the way through 1959. The 8V from Fiat turned out to be a three year production wonder and in that time just 114 examples were built. Of those 114 cars 34 carried coachwork from the factory’s special body

department, but the company also allowed just 30 8Vs to be bodied by great Zagato. As one of Italy’s premier coachbuilders, Zagato did wonders on the 8V as exemplified by the example offered here. Rare, exquisite, and beautiful are just a few of the words that describe this incredible “Double Bubble” 8V that has undergone a full and complete restoration that has returned it to factory new condition. The 8V offered here is chassis number 108 and was the seventh to the last Fiat 8V built before production ended. It carries Zagato’s famous “Double Bubble” coupe design, which makes it an aerodynamic masterpiece. It is known that it was sold new to a client in Germany, a fact proven by a special identification plate in the car that states Fiat’s German subsidiary Neckar, Heilbronn, Germany, handled distribution of the car. It is highly likely that it was the only new Fiat 8V sold on the German market. The story of this Fiat 8V has an interesting history behind it, as well as its resurrection at the hands of some of the most talented craftsmen in the world. After leading the hard life of a racecar, it surfaced in Florida

during the eighties and was brought to California by Fiat 8V expert and highly respected specialist Anton Krivanek. He sold the chassis and a number of parts to the late and greatly respected journalist Raymond Milo, who then sold it on to a collector in the Netherlands in 2002. It was then that a full restoration was commissioned that involved the chassis, as well as the Zagato Berlinetta body. The restoration took place at the shops of Carrozzeria Granturismo Milano and used original Zagato body parts that were sourced from Granturismo as a guide. Carrozzeria Granturismo Milano was no stranger to the significance of this 8V as the company was involved in the restructuring of the Zagato Company in 1996. Headed by Elio and Andrea Zagato, the company built multiple new Zagato prototypes while the historical activities of CGM were overseen

by the late Elio Zagato himself. It was during this time that several complete Fiat 8V restoration projects were undertaken including the example offered here, which was the last 8V Zagato restoration executed and certified by Elio Zagato himself. With Elio Zagato’s personal oversight the final result is a car that is authentic in every way. The beauty of this 8V is found in Zagato’s signature styling details such as the Double-Bubble roof, the aerodynamic rear bonnet, the mounted roll bar, and the magnificence of the exterior and interior colors. Authenticity of the restoration was ensured by multiple original reference materials and tools, including an original Zagato body from 1954 that was used in the process. In all, several thousand hours were spent perfecting the unique aspects of the body.

The restoration did not stop at the body and appearance as the chassis, engine, and all mechanicals underwent a full restoration as well. During the restoration of the mechanical parts, a stroke of luck happened when the original engine was discovered in the USA. The engine was exported to Italy where it was rebuilt in the shops of Mario Villa of Giussano near Monza, Italy. The entire engine was serviced and reborn according to competition specs that included a crankshaft-driven front oil pump, reinforcement of the engine block, a blueprinted crankshaft, and new connecting rods and pistons used in final assembly. The mechanical work executed was by the finest craftsmen and this 8V now runs as well as it looks. The total restoration of Fiat 8V #108 took more than 10 years and it has now been returned to


its former glory. It comes with a detailed restoration dossier as well as a certification for all body work performed. Most impressive is the engine itself, which is a work of art. The Fiat 8V engine consists of a 1996 cc, V8 configuration that produces 135 horsepower in competition form. Fiat calculated the top speed for the 8V at 118 mph, but the lightweight Zagato coachwork lightened its weight considerably and actual speed varied according to the body. Power reaches the rear wheels through a four speed gearbox. Independent suspension on all four wheels makes handling superb and the 8V used drum brakes on all four wheels.

European racing days may be long gone, but this Fiat 8V is a car that takes us back to time when European motorsports were a premier attraction and some of the greatest cars in the world battled it out for first place. Perhaps Fiat themselves said it best when they advertised the 8V as, “Built for speed and designed by the wind.� The fit and finish on this car is absolutely stunning and the tastefully executed lack of glitz and glamour underlines that fact that this is a full bred racecar. The authentic and documented restoration of this matching numbers 8V makes it one of the best in existence. This Fiat 8V with its rarity and Zagato design is a car that represents a significant investment in the future of an Rare and exotic Italian sports cars are the investment grade sports car and would substance of legend.

f all of the Italian competition cars that ever graced the race track, Fiat was a name that loomed large. Formed in 1899, Fiat’s cars were running races long before many other companies were even building a car. Fiat’s cars dominated many competitive events for decades and they performed well in their own right, but they also served as the perfect platform for many of Italy’s best competition cars. In 1949, brothers Gianfranco, Sandro, and Camillo Stanga formed a company with the sole purpose of assembling competition cars using the best possible components throughout Italy. By the early 1950s they were offering some of the fastest cars in Europe when they set about to create a masterpiece. With a chassis from Fiat, an engine from Giannini, and styling by Motto, they created just seven Stanga Barchettas for competition use. The story starts with Stanga acquiring a Fiat 500 chassis and upgrading it with a redesign using lightweight tubular steel and also reworking the suspension and steering components to competition specifications. Next came a competition engine by Giannini. Brothers Attilio & Domica Giannini were building some of the finest competition engines in the country and were considered the best at what they did. Giannini’s race tuned Fiat engine was been bored to 600cc and was

also paired with twin Weber carburetors, a four-speed close ratio gearbox, and a high-compression head. The combination of the Giannini brothers engineering skills and Stanga’s chassis refinements made for a car like no other, but there was one more element needed to bring about a legend and that was a body. The great coachwork of Motto of Turin proved to be the finishing touch on what would become this historic Italian racecar. Although Motto was best known as a carrozzeria for lightweight competition cars on a one-off basis, they were no strangers to the business of custom coachwork as their designs were found on such great marques as Ferrari, Delahay, Renault, and Lancia. Motto’s bodies also found their way to the other side of the pond as well with creations built on several Cadillac and LaSalle chassis. So sophisticated was their work that two of their biggest admirers were Virgil Exner and Ray Loewy. The secret to Motto’s success for their light-weight competition cars was a clean and elegant design with simple lines that were smooth and flowing and were void of any unnecessary trim or adornments. It was through the combination of these three entities that this offering, a 1951 Stanga Barchetta with coachwork by Motto was created. To say that this Stanga Barchetta is rare is an understatement as it is just

one of seven built with only two wearing coachwork from Motto. The refinements made by the Giannini brothers coupled with Motto’s lightweight body made for a car that could race with the very best. This Stanga is a veteran of the heady days the Italian racing circuit and according to John DeBore all seven of the Stanga Barchettas competed in the famed Mille Miglia in the early 1950’s which includes this car. With

its stellar racing past this Stanga is eligible for any vintage racing or rally event. It has also recently underwent a full service and is now ready for touring of any distance. It takes a distinct set of circumstances to create a work of art, but at one shining moment the efforts of Stanga, Giannini, and Motto all came together to create a very special part of Italian competition

history. This 1951 Stanga Barchetta is a car that carries a pedigree from several sources and this is proudly displayed in the badges it wears from all of its creators, As such, it is a car that deserves a special place in a special collection of famous unusual racecars. Its rarity, value, and condition are surpassed only by its longing for the open road.

he 1940 Lincoln Continental is considered one of the most iconic American automobile designs from the prewar era. It’s very sleek, well-proportioned form was almost stripped of brightwork and was much admired in Europe as well. Not until the crisp “Kennedy” Lincolns of 1961 would any American design be so well regarded overseas. As is well known, the original Continental was the dream of Edsel Ford, it began life as one of Edsel’s personal customs which he was always known to have. In 1938, Ford commissioned a one-off design he wanted ready for his March 1939 vacation from company Chief Stylist Eugene T. “Bob” Gregorie. Using the blueprints of the streamlined Lincoln-Zephyr as a starting

point, Gregorie sketched a design for a convertible with a redesigned body. His custom car was so popular amongst his friends that they wanted one for themselves. Eventually, it was decided to start producing Edsels custom and the Continental was born. It went into production with very few changes in 1940 and featured the first uses of foam rubber in the seats and aluminum cylinder heads. The year 1941 saw fewer vertical bars in the grille, push-button door handles, an electrically operated power top for the convertibles instead of a hydraulic one, and self-canceling turn signals. The club coupe offered here, one of only 847 built in this style in 1941, is a car that is recently from an estate of a collector who complerely restored the car some years

ago and took great care of it ever since. Finished in dark maroon, this continental looks its best. Under the hood is a 292 cubic inch L-head V-12 engine which is tidy and runs well and its paired with a three speed manual transmission. The restoration that was performed is also fully documented with pictures and comes with the car. Overall, this is a great example of the very rare 1941 Lincoln Continental coupe and would make a great addition to any fine automobile collection.

hen Jaguar introduced the E-Type in 1961 the entire sports car world took notice. Never before had such a car been available from a standard production line. Simply put, it was sleek, it was sexy, and it was fast. Even Enzo Ferrari himself marveled at Jaguar’s masterpiece. The success of the E-Type can be measured in its long production run with three series of cars built from 1961 to 1975. Offered here from the Chester Harwood collection of fine cars is a stunning example of the E-Type, a Series 1.5 finished in Pale Primrose. With just 29,000 miles since new

this Jaguar is an excellent representation of the E-Type. It was just refinished in its factory color and looks splendid. It also rides on a set of factory wire wheels and being a series 1.5, it retains the most beautiful features of the series 1 which include the entire series 1 nose with the smaller moth and smaller headlight openings, the series 1 signal lights and the series 1 style tailights. The series 1.5 is essentially still a series 1 on the outside. As a transitional model, it also features some of the unique characteristics that were only found on the series 2 XKEs. This includes open headlamps and redesigned dashboard toggle switches. Carburation was also changed to the series

2 style twin Zenith-Strombergs and twin fans were added for better engine cooling. Power for this XKE comes from its race proven twin cam 4.2 liter inline six rated at 246 horsepower. The carburetors on this Series 1.5 were also recently upgraded with adjustable high-speed jets for easy maintenance and reliability. The engine compartment of this Series 1.5 is nicely detailed and is ready for the strictest of concours judging. On the inside this E-Type is a true driver’s environment that features the classic sports car look and feel. The interior has also been cosmetically refreshed and all upholstery, door panels, carpet, dashboard, and interior trim are in like-new condition. This Series 1.5 has had just two owners from new and the second owner held the car for 42 years. In that time it was driven sparingly and well cared for. Jaguar’s XKE is perhaps the most iconic sports car ever built. When Sir William Lyons went ahead with its production

he literally changed the face of spirited performance in a European car. Nothing could be better than a fine summer day spent in an E-Type with the top down. For a driving experience like no other, this Series 1.5 XKE is a true sports car that’s ready for the open road.

t has been said by many automotive historians that the greatest design period in the automobile was the prewar European era. It was in this time that great companies like Delahaye, Alfa Romeo, Rolls-Royce, and Bugatti built some of the finest and most stylish cars ever built. There was also no shortage of talented coach builders that were more than ready to create their works of art on these fine chassis. Of course, a coach built car made for a quite a display, but many of these companies also offered their own factory bodied cars that were every bit as elegant as their coach built brethren. One such company that offered both factory and coach built cars was the famous Talbot-Lago. The roots of Talbot-Lago arose from the ashes of the Sunbeam-Talbot-Darracq that collapsed in 1935 when Antonio Lago purchased the Talbot name and formed Talbot-Lago. Production commenced, but as

a talented engineer Antonio Lago longed for something a bit more sporting in nature in the Talbot-Lago line. It started with the T-15, which proved to be an impressive performing car and before it was over the Talbot-Lago T series of cars would go on to become some the fastest cars in the world with victories at tracks all over Europe. Indeed, the very mention of the Talbot-Lago name was enough to strike fear in the hearts of any competitor. Offered here to the discriminating collector of fine motorcars is an excellent example of this company’s heritage, a 1938 Talbot Lago T-23 Sport Cabriolet that is beautifully restored and is truly an investment grade collector car. This T-23 short chassis (Baby) carries a factory body designed in close collaboration between Tony Lago and Joseph Figoni. According to coachbuilt .com and many experts because of Figoni’s close

relationship the sporty short chassis and Lago specials used coachwork lines of the custom Figoni’s of the previous year . This car is also fitted with a Figoni & Falaschi patented radiator grille and Figoni designed accessory bumpers. The stunning combination of Lago`s chassis that was so closely related to his race cars and Figoni’s styling and accessory grill and surround are chronicled in the company’s own catalog . It is not known how many actually received this combination from Talbot’s own design studio and as a Figoni accessory that bolted right on to the front of the factory car. The elegance of this T-23 is found in the tasteful execution of its flowing body lines on its short wheelbase chassis that carries beautifully flowing fenders and a louvered hood with grace and style. Other intriguing and unique design characteristics of this T-23 are a folding windscreen and chrome wheel disks with matching louvers that gives this car a spectacular

153 appearance. Power comes from a four liter inline six with dual carburetors and power reaches the rear wheels through a Wilson preselector gearbox. The restoration of this beautiful car was performed by the distinguished shops of Lecoq-Carrosseries of Paris and every detail was thoroughly researched in returning this T-23 to its factory new appearance. Nothing was overlooked in the restoration of this T-23 with all systems including the brakes, engine, suspension, steering, and all cosmetic as well as mechanical components fully refurbished. The colors chosen for its

restoration are also equally as stunning as the car itself as it wears a dark “Midnight Blue� with a contrasting deep red leather interior. It was also recently serviced and is ready for touring of any distance. The Talbot-Lago name is a legend that looms large in the world of the motorcar. After building some of the fastest and most expensive cars in the prewar European market the company fell on hard times during the postwar years and soldiered on until the Talbot-Lago name was transferred to Simca in 1959. The great Antonio Lago

passed away in 1960 and his legacy is displayed in each and every one of his fine cars. This T-23 Sport Cabriolet is car that carries the Talbot-Lago name with the pride and elegance that was the hallmark of these grand cars. For the very best in a fine European car this T-23 Sport Cabriolet represents an opportunity to acquire an investment grade collector car that would be the centerpiece of any world class collection.

he 100-6 BN4, which was introduced to replace the Austin-Healey 100-4, was instantly recognizable to the public as an Austin-Healey, but it introduced several improvements. Most compelling amongst these improvements would be its six-cylinder engine. Additional improvements included two small rear seats being added, a fixed windshield, and a wider radiator grille that would be carried on to the 3000 in the coming years. Where the 100-4 was clearly a sports car through and through, the 100-6 was clearly intended with added comfort for longer drives in mind, but it still retained the 1004’s sporting character.

The 100-6 BN4 offered here is a very well taken care of example. What is most interesting about this car is it was originally owned by Mrs. Kellogg of the Kellogg cereal family and lived most of its life in Palm Springs Florida. Finished in light blue with a black interior, this car is very attractive and very few 100-6 cars were fitted with steel wheels and the “Flying A” hub caps as this car is. Although it wears an older restoration, it presents extremely well and was clearly always a well taken care of Healey. Power for this 100-6 comes from its original 2639 cc Inline Six rated at 102 Horsepower. Under the hood is very clean and tidy as is the rest of the car. This 100-6 BN4 is a very seldom seen optioned Austin Healey and is ready to be driven, rallied or showed.

t is sometimes a very rare and minute set of circumstances that bring about a significant work of art. When Michelangelo was given the task of painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel ceiling in 1508, it represented the right man for the right job at just the right moment. The same can be said for Claude Monet, who in his life literally created the French impressionist period of fine art. In each instance there was a coming together of the perfect circumstances that created something of lasting value. This is where we find the story of a special-built 1932 Hudson. The story starts with Frank S. Spring, who started work for the Walter M. Murphy Company of Pasadena, California in 1923. Of course the Murphy name needs no introduction in the world of classic cars as many of the great chassis wore a Murphy body with Peerless, Pierce Arrow, and Duesenberg to name a few. It was at a meeting at the New York Automobile show in the late 1920s that Hudson President William J. McAneey met Frank Spring who suggested that Hudson let him design a coachbuilt Hudson Convertible sedan. The two became fast friends and when Murphy’s business began to slump in 1931 Spring joined Hudson as “Styling Engineer.” It was also at this same time that Spring wired his comrade at the Murphy Company Frank Hershey to join him at Hudson. Hershey also jumped off of the sinking Murphy Company ship and

joined Spring. Hershey stayed with Hudson for only four months, but in that time their collaboration produced several show cars and design concepts that were as stylish as any grand motorcar of the day. The story of this Hudson Roadster is as intriguing as much as it is interesting. It seems that when the Murphy Company was in the process of closing its doors a small pocket of time ensued that allowed Murphy’s designers to produce this Hudson Roadster for the Paris Auto Salon. With the Murphy design inspiration provided by Spring and Hershey combined with Hudson’s financial backing, this sharply styled Roadster gained many styling attributes that could only be found on a car built for the highly cultured European show circuit. Quite simply, it’s the only one of its kind and stands today as a testament to the long gone Golden Age of the classic era of the motorcar. Starting at the front this magnificent Hudson carries styling cues that differentiate it from the average production car. Hudson’s massive chrome grille is flanked by a set of Hudson teardrop headlamps and the height of the hood line nicely accents an extremely low profile windshield. An elegantly styled V-front bumper adds a touch of class and Hudson styled cowl lamps are mounted just ahead of the handles on the rear hinged


doors. Large hood louvers provide cooling for the engine compartment and the classic roadster rear deck with rumble seat is long and perfectly proportioned for a car of such size. This Murphy inspired show car was recently discovered and has since undergone a full and complete restoration that has returned it to its 1932 Paris Auto Salon show status. Indeed, a period photo of the car at the Salon shows it displayed among a sea of Morris and Triumph motorcars, none of which have the size or design elegance of the Hudson roadster. The exterior has been finished in Dark Midnight Black with Bright Orange accents and the interior has been returned to its factory appearance with orange leather and Bedford cord inserts. Rear passengers are treated to open air comfort in its

L O T

155


L O T

155


comfortable rumble seat. The interior also features a burled walnut dash that’s nicely accented with an engine turned insert. Power for this Hudson comes from a 254.4 cubic-inch inline eight cylinder rated at 101 horsepower. The engine compartment has been completely restored and detailed in every way and now presents as a work of art. This magnificent car rides on Hudson wire wheels complete with wide white wall tires for a look that’s absolutely stunning from any angle.

It is only the most unusual of circumstances that can create such a masterpiece, but the brief union of Frank Spring and Frank Hershey at Hudson created this magnificent design. With their roots from the Murphy body Company these two men may have been employed by Hudson at the time, but this did not stop them from proudly affixing the Walter M. Murphy badge to the body of this car. Hudson looked favorably upon the design and even hired Briggs to build copies, but it all started with the man, moment, and machine timing of two men that made

their exit from a failed coachbuilder in an era where times were changing. So rare is this car that Don Butler’s authoritative book on Hudson states that “no photograph of an authentic example of the rumble seat convertible could be found for publication.” For the ultimate in rarity, provenance, and exquisite design, this Murphy inspired Hudson is a car that reigns supreme as a custom coach built car that has no equal.

he Triumph TR3 is a classic British roadster in every sense of the word. Long body lines, low cut doors, and sports car handling characteristics are just a few of the attributes that the TR-3 is known for.  Produced from 1955 to 1963, the TR-3 had several variants and all were all stellar performers both on and off the track.  Power for the TR-3 came from a 1991 cc inline overhead valve engine rated at 95 horsepower, quite an impressive figure for a small sports car.  A manual four-speed gearbox gave the TR-3 an authentic sports car feel and suspension featuring double A-arms with coil springs and tube shock absorbers offered great handling both on the track and the open road.   Offered here is a wonderful example of Triumphs legacy: a 1962 Triumph TR-3A that carries an outstanding restoration. Finished in red with black interior, this car is as sharp as they come. It features all of the fine Triumph attributes including the optional sporty knock-off wire wheels. The interior is superbly finished and getting behind the

wheel of this TR-3A is an experience that represents the true thrill of a sports car. Under the hood is Triumph’s 1991cc engine rated at 95 horsepower, more than enough for spirited performance driving and the engine itself looks extremely clean and tidy, almost factory fresh. The overall look and appearance of this very well restored TR-3A makes it an impressive car from any angle. The TR3 has always been known for great performance and style and this TR-3A takes it to the next level. Classic British roadsters are always a hit at car shows and what other car can offer such open-air fun on a summer day?  The TR-3 is a sports car that is both historically significant yet reliable enough for everyday driving.  The TR-3 is the car that put Triumph on the map as it solidified the company’s place as builder of great sports cars.  This very nice example of the TR3 heritage would make a wonderful addition to any collection and is also immediately ready for both show and go.

hen Ettore Bugatti started his car company in 1909, he knew he could build a fast car that was capable of enduring the most punishing conditions demanded of a racecar of that day. Indeed, Bugatti’s cars were not only fast, but were also works of art in their craftsmanship. What he couldn’t have imagined was that his name would live in the pages of history as a legendary car builder that to this very day defines a supercar. The end of Ettore Bugatti’s grand company came when it was sold to Hispano-Suiza in 1963, some 15 years after his death. The death of his son Jean in 1939 had ensured that there was no one to carry on, but the Bugatti name has seen several reincarnations over the years. One such resurrection is the amazing EB110.

Built from 1991-1995 the EB110 was the brainchild of Italian Romano Artiloli as he set out to continue the famous Bugatti legend. In the end just 139 of these supercars were produced making each one a rare and special car. Offered here to the discriminating collector of fast and exotic cars is one of Artiloli’s visions of this grand legend in the form of a 1995 EB110, the last year of production. This is a remarkable condition car that has had just one owner and has traveled only 10,000 miles since new. Finished in a vibrant blue, the sleek appearance of this supercar reeks of speed and wind-cheating aerodynamics. The EB110 even has a speedsensitive rear wing that can be raised with the touch of a button. The interior features

the specialized appointments that make driving a true supercar an experience all to itself. Although the EB110 carries an impressive look from any angle, the heart of its splendor is found in the beautifully crafted V-12 engine that takes power and performance to a whole new level. This 3.5 liter engine has 60 valves and power is boosted through no less than four turbo chargers that enable the EB110 to reach 216 mph. So impressive is the appearance of this engine that Bugatti chose to enclose it in glass so that it’s clearly visible from the rear deck. The example offered here recently underwent servicing at a cost of $50,000 and is ready for touring of any distance.


The EB110 is a car that deserves to wear the Bugatti name and with just 139 built it’s every bit as rare as anything Ettore Bugatti ever offered. So special is the EB110 that in 1994 Formula One driver Michael Schumacher bought one. Sadly, Artioli’s dream of a resurrected Bugatti came to an end in 1995 and the name is now carried on by Volkswagen. This EB110 is a great condition car that is proud to wear the Bugatti name and also qualifies as a true supercar in the 200 mph club. No collection is complete without a rare and exotic supercar and this EB110 is a car that’s ready for touring and show duty at the finest concours event.

$20,000 - $25,000 NO RESERVE

I

n 1956 the Ford Motor Company decided to up the ante in the personal luxury market and introduced a car that was positioned above its own flagship Lincoln. Nothing was spared in creating a car that was unsurpassed in the U.S. car market.  It was so special that it wasn’t even called a Lincoln, but rather was its own marque called the Continental Mark II.  So special was the Continental Mark II that each one was delivered to the dealer in a fleece lined cover.  The cost was also just as special as it sold for $10,000, more than a RollsRoyce Silver Cloud.  Everything about the Continental Mark II was special and even the exhaust system ran through the inner body for a cleaner look.  Door jambs were chrome plated and literally everything was power operated.  Despite its lofty price tag and unprecedented level of sophistication,

the Mark II was a study in design elegance. In an era of chrome laden cars that were large, bright, and flashy, the Mark II used very little chrome in a car that carried the class and dignity of a European coach built car.  In fact, when the Mark II made its debut in October of 1955 it was not in New York or Detroit, but rather at the Paris Auto Show where it caused quite a stir.  Never before had anyone seen a car so beautiful from an American production line. Offered here is a gorgeous example of this most iconic car in the form of a 1956 Mark II finished in classic black with a two-tone tan and beige interior.  This magnificent car is a study in preservation and although looks restored has just been very well cared for.  It recently emerged from a long term ownership in the Chester

Harwood collection and has been detailed and serviced. It rides on wide white wall tires and also carries the Mark II’s unique turbine hub caps.  Power for this Mark II comes from a 368 cubic-inch V-8 with 285 horsepower.  The engine compartment on this Mark II is clean and well-sorted.  The inside presents on fine fashion with a nicely preserved interior complete with pleated seat inserts and door panels.   The interior looks remarkable as a preservation car with all of the fine attributes that the Mark II was known for.  The dashboard is an exercise in understated elegance with four simple pods carrying all gauges directly ahead of the driver.  Although the 1950s was a time of

extravagance, the Mark II used a “simpler is better” theme in the tasteful execution of its interior and the limited use of exterior chrome.   The Mark II was a special car, but despite its immense beauty it stayed in production for just two years.  In that time just 3,044 examples were built.  This Mark II with its beautiful finish and dedication to originality is a car that can sit among the finest on any concours field, but is also a car that offers extreme comfort on the open road.  In its day there was nothing like it and it remains today an icon of American automotive design.

F

erdinand Porsche’s first road going model bearing his own name was the 356. Introduced in 1948, it underwent continuous development during the production run, which finally ended in 1965. By production’s end, the car had come a long way. Engine output more than doubled from 40hp at introduction to 95HP for the final 356SC examples. The ultimate development from these years was the 356 C, which represented huge advances over earlier models, including the adoption of disc brakes. The 356C was available in both coupe and cabriolet form and aside from cars fitted the upgraded four-cam racing motors, the SC is the top of the range in terms of performance, with its more sporting suspension and more powerful motor. This particular 356SC coupe is a lovely example with the restoration completed in the late 1990’s. Before its ownership in Pennsylvania in 2000, it is believed to have

had three owners in California. Like all 356 C’s, the car is equipped with disc brakes and has the highly sought after Les Leston engine turned aluminum, wood-rimmed steering wheel with the Porsche “deluxe” horn center. Despite wearing an older restoration cosmetically, the car is in very nice condition and its restoration has a fresh appearance that belies the fact that it wasn’t completed recently. The body shows exceptionally good gaps and panel fit and very straight panels as well. The paintwork was done to high standards, but is showing some age. The chrome is excellent overall as well. The dashboard, switches and instruments are very nice and it has the original Blaupunkt AM/FM/SW radio and VDO clock, both of which are operational. The turned aluminum, wood-rimmed Les Leston steering wheel with the Porsche “deluxe” horn ring really gives the interior

that sporty Porsche look that it deserves. The trunk and engine compartment show nicely and are quite tidy. The trunk even retains its correct plastic tray and leather strap for the spare tire. The car has also been converted to 12 volt for reliability and runs exceptionally well with very strong power. This particular car, serial number 217501 is partly a “matching numbers” example. What is meant by “partly” matching numbers, is at some point in its early life 217501 had engine work done and part of its original engine was replaced with another case half and now caries engine number 75445 taken from a 1959 model. The engine is an SC spec engine with the 95 horsepower and partly its original 616/16 SC case from its original engine indicated on the top of the left side case. It still retains its original SC intakes, twin Solex


40 PII Carburetors and original SC exhaust system. As Harry Pellow writes in his book, “Secrets of the Inner Circle�, that this was not an uncommon practice in the period to have case halves replaced. Overall this car is a very good factory original 356 SC coupe with disc brakes, so original the wheels even retain their correct factory original date codes. This is a car that has clearly been cared for and enjoyed through the years. The 356 Porsche is a car that made history and that would be the predecessor to some of the greatest sports cars ever built. The 356 C 1600 SC is the ultimate culmination of the 356, being the latest and most developed version of the 356 model with the most power and performance upgrades that Porsche ever gave the 356. 356 SC #217501 is a car that can be shown, rallied or driven leisurely with style and can serve as a part of any great collection.

he Toyota Land Cruiser has been in production longer than any other vehicle manufactured by Toyota, beginning its run as a prototype in 1951 for use in the Korean War. The early model had a B-type, 3.4-liter inline-6 gasoline engine and used an SB-type, 1-ton truck chassis. It was called the Toyota Jeep, but by combining the B-type engine with the Jeep concept, it became known as the Toyota BJ. Because of its mechanical toughness and stylish design including its unique grille and headlight design, the Land Cruiser quickly went from a military purpose vehicle to a civilian SUV with style.

fter World War II, the United States caught the sports car bug which was greatly attributed to American servicemen experiencing the small, high strung, powerful and advanced sports cars in Europe during their time there. One car that many servicemen seemed to truly fall in love with was the MGTC. A good looking small British two seater roadster with large wire wheels that was somewhat affordable. After driving them around in Europe many of these TC’s were brought back to the U.S. and raced and rallied at races such as Watkins Glen and Bridgehampton making it the car that began the sports car craze in the United States despite its outdated and underpowered prewar design. Many great race drivers such as John Fitch and Carol Shelby got their start racing MGTC’s. Today the MGTC is a fun British roadster that is not uncommon attributed to their mass import at the end on the war because of their popularity, but very fun to drive

around town. The motorcar offered is a very good original car with great old patina. The paint shows some wear with some spots of blue showing through, which is believed to be the original color, but still attractive and the car retains some of its original chrome which also has a great old patina. The seat has been redone in black leather and shows very well and the car also wears a newer black canvas top that goes very well with the red car and black leather pleated seat. Mechanically this car runs and sounds healthy as power for the TC comes from its tried and true 1250cc 4 cylinder engine making 54 horsepower which was slightly more than its TA and TB predecessors and certainly gives a fun driving experience. Overall this is a very well kept original MGTC that is just out of a long time collection and is a car that would make a great showstopper or left as a nice original British roadster with great patina.

Estimates should not be relied upon, and each bidder and Buyer hereby agrees not to rely upon any estimate, as fact or as guarantee or prediction of the actual selling price or value of a Vehicle. Dragone Auctions shall not have any liability with regard to any estimates under any circumstances.

RESERVES

Unless otherwise specified in the catalogue or announced at the auction, the Vehicles will be offered, subject to a reserve, which is the minimum amount that the seller is willing to accept with regard to the respective Vehicle. Reserves are confidential and will not exceed the low presale estimate. Dragone Auctions may act to protect the reserve by bidding through the auctioneer, who may open bidding below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the seller, place bids on behalf of the seller up to the reserve amount, place bids in response to other bidders or if the opening bid is below the reserve can elect to withdraw the Vehicle from bidding. The Auctioneer shall not be obligated to


specifically identify bids placed on behalf of the seller to protect the reserve nor will he or she place a bid on behalf of the seller at or above the reserve. Sellers may not bid on Vehicles they have consigned to Dragone Auctions.

PAYMENT

The Purchase Price to be paid by the Buyer is, and the Buyer acknowledges that he or she is responsible for, and agrees to timely pay, the sum of the final bid price (the highest bid acknowledged and accepted by the Auctioneer), plus the Buyer’s premium of 10% of the final bid price, plus the applicable state and local sales and/or use tax and license fees, plus any and all costs and expenses incurred on behalf of the Buyer and/or as a result of the Buyer’s failure to timely and fully comply with the General Conditions, including, but not limited to, removal, transport and storage costs for the Vehicle and taxes therein, plus all other amounts due and owing pursuant to the General Conditions (collectively, the “Purchase Price”).

Dragone Auctions reserves the right to impose a late charge of up to a maximum of 18% per annum (or the maximum rate permitted by law, if less than 18%) on any portion of the Purchase Price if the Buyer does not make timely payment of the Purchase Price when due under these Conditions of Sale. All payments must be made by wire transfer, certified bank check, cashier’s check or with prior approval of Dragone Auctions’ financial department, personal or company check. Unless otherwise agreed to by Dragone Auctions in writing, Dragone Auctions

will not accept payment of any portion of the Purchase Price from any party other than the Buyer, title to a Vehicle does not pass to the Buyer, and the Vehicle will not be released to the Buyer, until good and cleared funds in the amount of the full Purchase Price are received by Dragone Auctions in accordance with the General Conditions.

The amounts payable by any attendee, bidder or Buyer are not sufficient to warrant Dragone Auctions assuming any risk of damages of any kind, including, but not limited to, consequential damages to the bidder, attendee or Buyer as a result of or relating to any negligence, breach or failure to perform by Dragone Auctions or any of its directors, officers, employees, agents or representatives be liable for, and each attendee, bidder and Buyer hereby expressly, knowingly and intentionally waives and agrees they shall not seek any special indirect, punitive, consequential or incidental damages of any kind arising out of or directly or indirectly relating in any way to the auction or any Vehicles(s), including without limitation any lost profit, appreciation, loss of opportunity or loss of investment, regardless of the acts or omissions or fault of Dragone Auctions or any of its directors, officers, employees, agents or representatives.


CONDITIONS OF SALE CONTINUED ATTORNEYS’ FEES

If Dragone Auctions engages counsel to assist it to enforce any part of the General Conditions, with regard to any bidder, attendee, Buyer or other party, such bidder, attendee, Buyer or other party, as the case may be, shall be responsible for all reasonable fees (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees), costs and all expenses incurred by Dragone Auctions (including, without limitation, costs and all expenses related to evaluating, analyzing, assessing, enforcing, preparing for and conducting litigation of any kind or nature), whether or not legal proceedings are commenced.
