101 1986 SAAB 006 Convertible Junior • Saab dealer promotional car • Fits an adult or child • Only 75 ever built
Estimate: $1200 - $1800
Car manufacturers have always been obsessed with generating showroom traffic, as everything from a coffee cup to a car have been offered to customers, just for “stopping by.” In 1986, Saab enticed prospective buyers to the showroom, with the Saab Turbo 006 Go-Kart. Powered by a 3.5 horsepower engine this little Red Saab could carry an adult or child to a blistering speed of 22 miles per hour. The Saab Turbo 006 was more than just a toy, as the selling price was $1,900 making it an expensive little car in 1986. The Turbo 006 was
available through Saab’s dealer network and anyone could buy one, but very few did, as just 75 were built making the Turbo 006 a very rare car. Offered here is an excellent preservation example of this cute little Saab that is completely original and ready to make some noise around the neighborhood. This Turbo 006 is unrestored and still retains all of its originality including, its 3.5 horsepower four-stroke Honda single-cylinder engine. The steering is tight and it handles just like a go-kart
should. The Turbo 006 is great for a child, but can also easily fit an adult. The 006 was also designed for winter driving, as its motor wheel easily turns into a 4Ă—2 for more traction. The Saab Turbo 006 is a nifty little gokart that offers great fun around the
neighborhood, but make no mistake about it; with just 75 built this is a collector car that is both rare and desirable. No one really knows how many of the original 75 are left, but given the very nature of a go-kart, it would have to be a very low number.
For fun around the neighborhood, that can only increase in value, this little Saab Turbo 006 is a great opportunity to add something special and unique to your collection.

102 1957 KING MIDGET MKIII • Rare wood door car • Recently serviced • Nice restoration
Chassis Number: 5581028 Estimate: $5,000 - $6,000
Economy has always been one of the mainstays of automobile design. Certainly comfort goes hand-in-hand with luxury and size, but when a car is built specifically for economy it usually ends up being rather small. In the 1920s, the cycle car enjoyed a brief span of popularity and who can forget the little Crosley. Excellent fuel mileage, simplistic design, ease of maintenance, and easy parking are just a few of the attributes of the small economy car. Among these greats in the microcar world is the King Midget; a car that enjoyed more than its fair share of success. Introduced in 1946, the King Midget made its success by marketing directly to consumers as a kit car. Axles, steering components, springs, and a
chassis arrived in a box whereupon the owner dove into the instruction manual and assembled his new car. King Midget found their customers in the pages of Popular Mechanics and Popular Science magazines where steady advertising maintained a steady flow of customers. Before it was over several generations of King Midgets were produced and it became well-known as one of America’s best micocars. Offered here is a splendid example of the King Midget in this 1957 Series III. The year 1957 was the first year for the Series III and a new style was introduced with square fenders. Perhaps it was no mistake that it bore a strong resemblance to the famous Jeep. This King Midget
rides on a 76-inch wheel base and is powered by a rear-mounted, aircooled Wisconsin single cylinder engine. Itâ€™s finished in a lovely cream color with a tan convertible top and is nicely accented by real word doors, a feature that only lasted for only twoyears as they were changed to steel in 1959. This King Midget wears an older restoration that has been nicely
maintained and looks great. It has niche all its own. This Series with its also been serviced and is now ready solid condition is a car that displays well, but can also be taken out for a for the open road. drive around town. For the collector The King Midget was certainly an thatâ€™s looking for something thatâ€™s anomaly in the American car market. just a bit different from the ordinary, At a time when other cars were this little King Midget is just the car reaching for the stars with the jet- to fill that small corner of the garage. inspired fins and dassling chrome, the little King Midget had a market

103 1951 Ford F-1 Pickup • Nice restoration • Finished in Ford’s Sheridan Blue • Ford V-8 power
Chassis Number: 5F1R1SR13017 Estimate: $25,000 - $30,000
The pick-up truck has been a fixture in U.S. automobile production, since the dawn of the motorcar era. Born out of necessity and raised on the farm, the pick-up truck earned its keep, wherever it was used. Of course, the pick-up truck of the present day, with its plush interior, flashy colors, and power accessories is a far cry from the original concept of a work truck. Long before the day of the cup holder loaded truck of today, there was a time when it was a workhorse in every sense of the word. Style was a mere afterthought, as a truck had to be rugged, reliable, and most of all, strong. Never one to shy
away from building a good truck, was the Ford Motor Company. Ford’s trucks go all the way back to the famous Model T that was a favorite on the farm and in the factory. The Model A got even better with Ford offering a stylish roadster pick-up. By the early 1940s, Ford had perfected the truck to a point where they were every bit as stylish, as their passenger car cousins. Solid reliability went hand-in-hand with a beautiful body that was at home on the farm and the local soda shop. Featured here, is a gorgeous F-1 pickup truck in Ford’s colorful Sheridan Blue
with a White grille and color-keyed rims. This is a first generation F-1 that Ford introduced as their all-new postwar truck in 1948 and production ran through 1952. Versatility was the name-of-the game in Ford’s truck line, with no less than eight different weight ratings with a pickup, panel truck, large cab-over engine, a conventional truck, and even a school bus chassis. This sharp truck is fully restored and looks great with correct black wall tires, small chrome “dogdish” hub caps, and large bulbous fenders that define the immediate
post war era. You’ll find no cupholders inside, but a two-tone seat in Red and Gray brightens up this basic interior that has no door panels and a rubber mat, just as it would have looked back in 1951. Up front is an engine compartment that features Ford’s tried and proven flat head V-8 engine with 106 horsepower. A column mounted three-speed shifter is basic, but it’s exactly what these trucks used. The bed is finished in wood that beautifully matches the bright Blue paint. All systems are in good order and this truck is ready
for both chores and weekend show duty. The American pick-up truck is a legend and this 1951 Ford is an excellent example of the charm that is so unique to the early truck. Long before the truck became what it is today, the first generation F-1 gave America a glimpse of how stylish a truck could be. This example with its fine condition and dedication to authenticity is a truck that can go to the hardware store in the afternoon and the car show at night.

104 1940 Cadillac Series 62 • From the Joel Adelstein collection • Rare factory dual side mounted spare tires
• Beautiful leather interior
Chassis Number: 8417716 Estimate: $50,000 - $60,000
As the premier builder of luxury motorcars around the world for over 100 years, the Cadillac name is recognized as the best in American luxury. Starting in 1902, Cadillac has built solid and reliable cars that were not only dependable, but also were some of the most opulent and luxurious on the road. Certainly, the Golden Age of the motorcar in the 1930’s saw many of Cadillac’s finest with their magnificent V-16 power, but the 1940’s, also saw Cadillac rise to a new level. Quite simply, the prewar and postwar Cadillac’s were gorgeous cars that literally, defined prestige and luxury. Cadillac began the decade, with great cars like the Series 62 convertible. Quite
simply; for top down motoring in 1940, it didn’t get any better than in a Cadillac. Offered here in Cadillac’s dark “Antoinette Blue” is this 1940 Series 62 Convertible that wears an older restoration that has been well-cared for. The year 1940 was the last for side mounted spare tires on a Cadillac and this one even has its factory steel covers intact. Running boards were going in the way of the dinosaur, but were still, available as a no-cost option. This Series 62 is from the noted Joel Adelstein collection of fine cars and directly reflects, both the taste and depth of his collection. Its 129-inch wheelbase is nicely accented by wide white wall
tires and rear fender skirts that give it a sleek and aerodynamic look. Power comes from a 346 cubic-inch overhead valve V-8 engine rated at 135 horsepower with a three-speed selective synchromesh manual transmission. The interior of this Cadillac is tastefully finished in Gray leather that is soft and comfortable. The dash board is beautifully designed with just a hint of Art Deco
and this Cadillac is also equipped with a radio and clock. The rear seat is especially pleasing, with a sea of Gray leather that allows for extreme comfort. The Cadillac name has always carried an aura of prestige and this Series 62, with its immense length and fine condition makes it a car worthy of
any collection. For the very best in a Cadillac luxury from a bygone era, this Series 62 Convertible Sedan is a car that can hold the whole family and is ready for the open road. â€‹

105 1953 Oldsmobile 88 Convertible • Oldsmobile “Rocket” V-8 Power • Excellent Restoration • Excellent Long Distance Touring Car
Chassis Number: 538M15126 Estimate: $50,000 - $60,000
Ransom Eli Olds was an innovator in the early days of the motorcar; while others were struggling to build a reliable machine, Olds had his “Curved Dash Olds” that was a trendsetter both in design and reliability. Recognized as being the first mass-produced motorcar, the “Curved Dash Olds” was a marvel of engineering; with power from a water-cooled single cylinder engine that produced just five-horsepower, but the fact that it ran on a consistent basis, was enough to make it a success. In the end, just over 19,000 were built before production ended in 1907. Ransom
Olds sold his business to General Motors in 1908 and soon lost control of the company he started, but the deep pockets of GM allowed Olds to remain a fixture on the automotive landscape, until their demise in
2004. As a company that spanned over 100 years, there are many interesting chapters in the history of Oldsmobile and one is their performance heritage. In the early 1950’s, Oldsmobile set the standard
by winning nine Grand National events, with their “Rocket” V-8 power. Those victories translated into sales in the showroom and Olds sold 319,414 cars for the calendar year, firmly placing the company
in seventh place for U.S. auto production. Oldsmobile’s cars for 1953, were long, low, and loaded with dazzling chrome. Offered here is a beautiful Oldsmobile Super 88 Convertible. The Super 88 was similar as the standard 88, but the big difference was that it borrowed the powerful “Rocket” V-8 from Oldsmobile’s 98 series. This 88, wears an older restoration that has been nicely preserved and still looks great. Finished in Oldsmobile’s Agate Red, this daring
hue speaks directly to the bold and vibrant colors that the 1950s were known for. This Super 88 rides on a 120-inch wheelbase and wears a set of wide white wall tires with Oldsmobile’s wire hub caps. A Black canvas top provides a nice contrast and Oldsmobile’s roomy interior holds six passengers. The 303 cubic-inch “Rocket” V-8 engine has plenty of power, with 165 ponies hitting the pavement and acres of chrome gives this Supper 88 a dazzling appearance. Oldsmobile successfully captured the emerging
jet-age with a futuristic rocket styled spacecraft hood ornament that defines flight in motion. Oldsmobile ended an era in 1953, with a whole new look for 1954, which began to move towards the jet-inspired tail fin, but for 1953 the smooth and well-balanced styling proved very popular. This Super 88 Convertible, is a car straight from the very heart of Oldsmobile’s long and stellar history and is sure to be a big hit at the show.

106 1954 Jaguar XK120SE Roadster • Jaguar Heritage Certificate • Numbers Matching Car • Race Ready for Vintage Events
Chassis Number: S675830 Estimate: $60,000 - $70,000
When 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 exhaust and wire wheels making 20 more horespower than the average 120. 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 XK120â€™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.decade.

107 1937 Bentley 4 1/4 Saloon • Coachwork by Thrupp & Maberly • Factory dual side mounted spares with metal covers
• Classic Bentley elegance
Chassis Number: B92KT Estimate: $65,000 - $75,000
Among the greatest cars in the world is Bentley, founded in 1919 by W.O. Bentley in Crewe, England, Bentley’s cars quickly, became known as some of the fastest in the world. Proof of their performance was solidified with wins of the 24 Hours of Le Mans races in 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929, and 1930. It seemed, that nothing could beat a Bentley on the track, until a faltering economy proved tougher on Bentley than anything on four wheels. Hit hard by the Great Depression, W.O. Bentley was forced to sell out to Rolls-Royce who began producing cars under the Bentley name in 1933. W.O. Bentley was retained under contract though 1935, but he was
kept at a distance by Rolls-Royce from his own cars that he had come to know and love. When his contract expired, he left with a new sense of freedom and joined Lagonda, but under Rolls-Royce’s stewardship, a new line of “silent sports cars” was developed that became some of the best cars to ever wear the Bentley name. Offered here is an interesting example of Bentley’s heritage, a 1937 Bentley 4 ¼ liter, with coachwork by one of England’s oldest coachbuilders, Thrupp & Maberly. This Bentley wears an older restoration that has been driven extensively, but still looks good. It’s finished in tradition
White and carries dual side mounted spare tires complete with factory metal covers. It rides on color-keyed wire rims with wide white wall tires for a truly elegant look in the finest European tradition. Bentley’s “Flying B” sits elegantly atop its large and impressive radiator that is flanked by correct prewar Lucas head lights. The interior is finished in beautifully broken-in Blue leather that is soft and comfortable with a sun roof, which makes for fine motoring on a summer day. The dashboard is hand

108 1958 Chrysler 300-D • One of 191 300D Convertibles built • Handsomely finished in Raven Black paint
• Last year for the iconic Firepower Hemi engine in the 300 letter series
Chassis Number: LC41008 Estimate: $135,000 - $150,000
The 300 letter series, stands out to this day among the most noticeable examples of Chrysler’s high standard for automotive design. Debuting in 1955, the Chrysler 300 was arguably the first real muscle car offering 300 horsepower from its Hemi V-8 engine. Performance was spectacular with a 0-90 mph time of just 16.9 seconds and a top speed of 120 miles per hour. In 1958, the 300D was driven to a speed of 156 miles per hour at the famed Bonneville Salt Flats. It was the impressive statistics like this, that allowed Chrysler to dominate the
Grand National racing circuits. The 300 series carried the banner for Virgil Max Exner Sr.’s “Forward Look,” which commanded control of design standards within the automotive market, well into the mid-1960’s. Offering such groundbreaking options as power seats, brakes, steering, and windows, Chrysler’s cars pioneered automotive technological innovation. As the photos show, the car offered here was beautifully and professionally restored at a price of over $200,000 by
Little City Restorations in Vancouver, British Columbia. Inside this car and you’ll find a stylish two-tone interior that allows you to haul the entire family around. In front of the spacious bench seats, is a vivid and artistic dashboard that was professionally restored to showroom
condition. Complementing the picture-perfect Raven Black finish, is a correct leather interior and brightwork that was restored to “asnew” condition. Combine all of this, with a rich Black carpet and what you get is a breathtaking ride, inside and out. Under the hood, is the
factory original dual carbureted 392 cubic-inch Hemi with a Cross RAM manifold that displays, just as nicely as the rest of the car. Reliability was never an issue, with these remarkable power plants. During the Second World War, in effort to better Republic Aviation’s P-47
Thunderbolt, Chrysler conducted extensive research and exploration to develop what became known as the hemispherical combustion chamber, commonly known as the “Hemi.” This engine is still considered to be a legend among the big block
series. This 300D, has been driven a mere ten miles since its extensive restoration. Historically, Chrysler was a frontrunner in producing some of the most fascinating and exciting high-
performance cars Detroit had to offer at the time. This Chrysler 300D is a rare and stunning example that awaits its next owner’s enthusiastic possession. Due to a staggering economy, as well as, a massive strike within the automotive industry,
Chrysler’s production numbers suffered during the 1958 model year and the 300 series was no exception, with just 191 examples produced. The Chrysler 300 Club, notes that just 55 examples are known to exist today. Altogether, this is truly a unique opportunity to own a rare piece of Chrysler history. Careful design, formidable power, and a handsome restoration makes this car a must-have for any serious collector of powerful Chryslers.

109 1938 Cadillac V-16 Convertible Sedan • From the Joel Adelstein collection of fine Cadillacs
• Cadillac V-16 power • Fully recognized CCCA Classic
Chassis Number: 5270060 Estimate: $85,000 - $100,000
In a day when the number of cylinders in a motorcar directly determined one’s status in society, Cadillac shocked the country club with the introduction of their V-16 in 1930. Duesenberg had their mighty Lycoming straight-eight and Lincoln had the V-12, but the V-16 outnumbered them all. Marmon was the only competitor to offer 16 cylinders, but the effects of the Great Depression quickly, left Cadillac as the lone builder of this prestigious engine. Cadillac’s V-16 power would literally, go on to define the classic car era of the 1930’s by staying in production, until 1940. During this time, it was the car-of-choice for the Vanderbilt’s, Rockefellers, and the Asters. Whether it was on the streets of Manhattan, or the summer home in Newport, the Cadillac reigned supreme,
as the ultimate car. In the present day, these hand-crafted mechanical marvels are a work of art at any concours show, especially when mated to the fine coachwork that was the hallmark of the classic era. The beautiful Cadillac that wears the V-16 crest offered here, is a gorgeous illustration of this great car in the way of a 1938 Cadillac Convertible Sedan finished in Classic White. The convertible sedan body style, was once very popular with all of Detroit’s car companies, offering a four-door convertible, but Cadillac’s were bigger, better, and more powerful than all of the rest. This example is from the Joel Adelstein Collection of fine Cadillacs and it has been maintained in order to
ensure its elegant and prestigious appearance. Starting at the front, this massive Cadillac carries an enormous grille that is flanked by two body colored bullet headlamps, while the Cadillac “Winged Goddess” hood ornament proudly shows the way. Side mounted spare tires complete with factory metal covers create a long and sweeping appearance. Cadillac’s for 1938, still had just a hint of a running board below the doors and at the rear, three Chevrons grace the lower rear fenders in pure Art Deco style and the V-16 emblems is prominently displayed on the trunk
lid. As impressive is this large car, the interior is a true delight to the sense, with fine Tan leather and stunningly designed trim appointments that are fitting of the finest furniture. A large “banjo” steering wheel makes handling this huge car a snap and the dashboard is a tasteful and elegant design, with all gauges within easy sight. At the heart of this Cadillac, is the mighty V-16 with twin carburetors that musters 185 horsepower. This convertible sedan rides on an immense 154-inch wheelbase and is fitted with wide white wall tires, complete with V-16 hub caps.
The era of the magnificent V-16 is long gone, but they’re always a welcome sight on any concours field. Perhaps, it’s their whisper quiet engine that makes them so special, but in the world of fine motorcars they are a force to be reckoned with. The grand convertible sedan takes us back to a time, brute power and sheer weight ruled the road. For touring in a style that is seldom matched by any other car, this Cadillac with its V-16 power is the perfect car for the open road or the concours field.

Leland’s expertise, this Cadillac is tuned and ready to run for touring of any distance. Make no mistake about it, this is a car that gathers stares wherever it goes. Delightful, opulent, and charming are just a few of the words that describe this early Cadillac that’s well over a

Chassis Number: W5561253 Estimate: $45,000 - $55,000
In the mid-1950’s, car companies were moving forward in the design of the automobile. Indeed, cars were getting longer and lower, thanks to men like Harley J. Earl. Both Ford and Chevrolet, had designs in place that would bring the car from the high-sided look to a more sleek and aerodynamic shape that came to epitomize the 1950’s. When Chrysler caught wind of what was over the horizon in the early 1950s, they were caught completely off-guard. Chrysler’s Chairman of the Board, K.T. Keller was still adamant about a tall and boxy car, but reality soon set in and a sneak peek at the competition, let Chrysler know that they were in deep trouble. Virgil
Exner was brought in and completely revamped Chrysler’s line-up, with Exner’s brilliant work making its debut in 1955 with the all-new “Million Dollar Look.” Chrysler’s cars for 1955 were sleek, sexy, and were all built with V-8 power. Indeed, Exner’s design skills provided Chrysler with a banner year for 1955 with 152,777 cars sold. Featured here is one of Exner’s more glamorous designs in the way of a 1955 Windsor Deluxe Convertible. Certainly, there was no shortage of Ford or Chevrolet convertibles for 1955, but with just 1,395 Windsor Deluxe Convertibles built, they were rare then and are even
rarer today. This fine example carries a fresh restoration that has returned to “like-new” condition. Its finish in Chrysler’s “Tango Red,” doesn’t exactly detract from its curb side appeal, especially with the top down. Everything that was good about Exner’s design styling, is clearly demonstrated in this classic cruiser from its nicely detailed split front grille, to its full length trim spear and chrome rear tail lights that gives just a hint of the fin wars that were just around the corner. This Windsor Deluxe rides on a 126-inch

Chassis Number: 8T03C102935 Estimate: $55,000 - $65,000
Ford’s Mustang is one of the most popular cars ever built. Introduced in 1964, it immediately became the car to own and never looked back. Available as a coupe, convertible, or fastback, its versatility wasn’t lost on anyone who wanted a sporty car. One of those who took notice of its stunning good looks was Carroll Shelby, a man who knew how to build a fast car. Indeed, Shelby’s GT350 tore up racetracks all over the globe and the Mustang became a fearsome competitor both in drag and road racing. Shelby’s relationship with the Ford Mustang lasted for decades and today these cars are among the most
sought after in the world. The Mustang also found favor with Hollywood as it was the car to drive in any situation that required raw power. Steve McQueen drove a Mustang in the 1968 film Bullet and Nicholas Cage also ran the streets of Los Angeles in a Mustang named Eleanor for the movie Gone in 60 Seconds. No one could have known it at the time, but Cage’s sleek and fast Eleanor would go on to change the face of the Mustang for generations to come. Offered here is a tribute to this legend in the way of a 1968 GT500E that features all of the attributes of the GT500 and

This Mustang GT500E with its astonishing performance and quality build is a car that can be driven anywhere with reliability and dependability. The aggressive stance of this GT500E leaves no doubt that it means business and is a true tribute to the American performance car.

As the premier builder of luxury motorcars around the world for over 100 years, the Cadillac name is fully recognized as the best. Starting in 1902, Cadillac has built solid and reliable cars that were not only dependable, but also were some of the
most opulent and luxurious on the road. Certainly the Golden Age of the motorcar in the 1930s saw many of Cadillac’s finest with their magnificent V-16 power, but the 1950s also saw Cadillac rise to a new level. Quite simply, the decade of
innocence witnessed the company’s rise to the nation’s number one luxury car builder as Packard fell into the history books. Clearly, sized mattered and Cadillac had all of that and more. Featured here is one of Cadillac’s biggest and best in the form of a 1954 Cadillac Series 62 convertible.

114 The Barris “Ricksha Taxi” • Unique one-of-a-kind build • Unrestored original • Featured at the 1970 Tokyo World’s Fair
Chassis Number: 8783244 Estimate: $45,000 - $65,000
In the 1970s, when something out of the ordinary was needed in the custom car world, the man to turn to was the great George Barris. Batman and Robin found this out rather quickly, as they fought crime every week in one of Barris’s custom cars. When the Munsters needed a new family coach, it was George Barris who supplied it. Even “The Monkeys”, used a George Barris custom built car based on a GTO platform. In the era of the 1970, Barris’s cars were seen all over, as he supplied custom creations to just about every Hollywood TV show. So, it was that when the organizers of the 1970 World’s Fair needed something unique, they contacted George Barris who created the “Ricksha.” Wild, different, and outrageous are just a few words that begin to describe this custom-build, as Barris’s team pulled out
The basis for the build was to create George’s version of an Osaka Taxi for the 1970 World’s Fair. The result was a fully operational and functional three-wheel vehicle powered by an enormous engine. A hand built chassis of rectangular tubing incorporated a swinging third yoke for the super strong front-wheel steering apparatus. Steering was through a tiller that is a simulated Scimitar sword that operates a power-assist unit for steering. The shock absorbers were spring loaded and adjustable to handle the weight and the frame was a strengthened “Z” design that held it all together, with a Chevrolet rear-end, which put all the power to the ground. This “Risksha,” was a trike like no other in the world. The added features of the Rickshaw are found in the visual cues that are mounted on every angle of this unique build. Starting at the front, its single wheel is a slotted 1960s style rim with a quarter fender over the top. The radiator is covered by an Asian rice hat. A sculptured three-headed dragon air-cleaner covers the 400 cubic-inch Chevy V-8 engine, with a “spaghetti noodle” header system that is a marvel
of design. The interior and folding top are fully upholstered and all gauges are chrome bullet shaped. The unique steering system has just the sword and a statue of Buddha graces the rear. Clearly, there is nothing that isn’t unique about this incredible custom and it’s a vehicle that can be looked at over and over in amazement.
Dragone Classic Motorcars is proud to offer this unique vehicle, which has been cosmetically refreshed and is now ready for the open road. It is important to note that no alterations have been made from Barris’s original design and it presents today in the same condition, as when it appeared at the 1970 Tokyo World’s Fair. Although listed as a 1970, the “Ricksha” is titled
from its 1962 engine. So, astounding was the “Ricksha” that the M.P.C. Model Company made it available as a model kit in 1/20 scale. The “Ricksha” was built to see just how different a trike could be and the fact that it survives today completely intact is a testament to the work of George Barris.

115 1931 Model A Ford 180-A Deluxe Phaeton • Rare Briggs bodied phaeton • Unrestored and well-preserved • High compression head • 1 of roughly 275 known to exist
Chassis Number: A4622479 Estimate: $30,000 - $35,000
Henry Ford’s success with the Model T, literally put America on wheels, but when the time came to retire the “Tin Lizzie” many held their collective breath, over what would follow in its footsteps. The answer came on December 2, 1927, as the Ford Model A made its nationwide debut. The Model A proved to be a worthy successor to the T and the motoring public loved it. The Model A had every bit of Ford’s reliability; while also proving to be a very stylish car. Versatility was the key to the A’s success, as they were offered in roadsters, sedans, coupes, and even a
town car. For the family that wanted a bit more style, Ford offered the Deluxe Phaeton. With comfortable seating, the phaeton offered reliable transportation at an affordable price. As Model A’s go, very few are rare, but in late 1930 Ford introduced a Deluxe Phaeton with a body by Briggs. Offering just a bit more styling and comfort than the average Model A, the Briggs phaeton was a cut above the rest and was just the car for the family with style. Offered here is a great example of this rare car in the way of a 1931 Deluxe
Phaeton with Black wire wheels, it has several interesting features and a known history. This is a largely original condition car, that was built in late 1931 as evidenced by the indented firewall that was unique to the later model year cars. It still wears its Briggs body tag and
itâ€™s fitted with a high-compression â€œBâ€? police head that dramatically increases performance. This phaeton has never been fully restored and has received only the care and maintenance needed in order to preserve its mechanical condition and appearance. It also features
a rare accessory, APCO steering column mounted oil pressure and temperature gauge cluster. This phaeton originally, came from Rhode Island and made its way to Connecticut, where it was owned by a single family until 2008. Its current owner commissioned new brakes,
wheel bearings, a new clutch, and a complete rebuild of the transmission and it runs today, exactly as it should. As a rare Briggs body car, this Model A has several nifty accessories including the “Flying Quail” hood ornament, folding windshield, bucket seats, top saddles, a side mounted spare tire with chrome cover, a trunk rack, longer doors, and adjustable driver’s seat. With all these special features, this Ford is certainly one of the sportiest of all Model As’. Ford offered a total of 12 different
body styles on the Model A, but the rarity of this one makes it different than all the rest. This example with its attention to authenticity and excellent reliability makes it a great touring car, while also being a big attention getter on the show field. For collectors of fine early Ford cars, this Briggs bodied phaeton is an unusual Model A that does not disappoint.

Chassis Number: WP0930HS050795 Estimate: $110,000 - $130,000
The 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 1987 Porsche 930 Turbo Coupe. This 930, has had just one owner from new and has been cared for with a level of precision, that is seldom seen in the collector car market. It has just 40,000 documented miles and today looks like
a showroom car. Finished in Classic Black, this 930 is fully documented, with its ownership and service history from new and it has received Mobil 1 oil changes every 2,200 miles. The paint is 100% original and the entire drivetrain is completely factory correct, with no alterations. It also retains its original window sticker and bill of sale from Inskip Porsche. This is a nicely equipped 930; with a factory sunroof, Blaupunkt radio, forged alloy rims, power windows, tinted glass, leather interior, and fog
lights. It was just fitted with new Bridgestone RE11’s tires and carries a spotless Carfax. This 930 was also, just serviced from the same Porsche technician that prepped the car for delivery and has worked on the car exclusively, for the last 30 years. In the Porsche 930 market, this example would have to be considered among the best documented and preserved 930’s in existence. Its provenance was solidified, by its display at the prestigious Greenwich Concours d’Elegance in 2016.
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 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.

117 1955 Packard Caribbean Convertible • Tri-tone paint • Excellent restoration • Last of the great Packards
Chassis Number: 55881258 Estimate: $70,000 - $75,000
The Packard Motor Company was one of the founding members of the automotive community. When James Ward Packard built his first car in 1899, he had a vision that the Packard name would become a force to be reckoned with on the automotive landscape. His vision was fulfilled when Packard dominated the luxury car market and built some of the most magnificent cars known. It seemed that the Packard name would live forever, but by 1955 Packard was quickly slipping into oblivion after its dismal merger with Studebaker. It came to an end in 1958, but not without a last push, as the beautiful Packard Caribbean was a gorgeous luxury car. Certainly, the Caribbean could hold
court with any of Cadillac’s cars, but the deep pockets of General Motors was something that Packard couldn’t compete with. Styled by Richard A. “Dick” Teague, the fabulous Caribbean sat firmly at the top of Packard’s line-up and was simply dazzling, with its tri-tone paint schemes. A full leather interior and plenty of power accessories, almost justified its lofty $5,932 price tag, but in the end, just 500 Caribbean’s were built for 1955 making this one a rare car. This lovely Caribbean features a very attractive tri-tone paint scheme in Jade Green, Jade White, and Onyx Black that carries off its wild colors, like only a car from the 1950s could. The Caribbean for
1955 was totally restyled and rides on a 127-inch wheelbase. Rounded lines were replaced by a more angular and sharper design that looked modern and up-to date. This Caribbean, has its simulated double hood scoops and features large cathedral style taillights and gold plated Packard name plates. This luxury cruiser rides on wide white wall tires on Kelsey Hayes wire rims. Power for this Caribbean comes from a 352 cubic-inch overhead valve V-8 engine with dual Rochester four-barrel carburetors
rated at 275 horsepower. Driving is easy, thanks to Packard’s TwinUltramatic automatic transmission and this Caribbean is also fitted with power steering, power brakes, power windows, power front seat, seat belts, and an AM radio with a set of dual power-operated radio antennas, which gives it a sporty look. The interior was completely restored with new White and Aqua leather upholstery and the dashboard on this Packard is a work-of-art, with its jet inspired buttons and knobs. Driving this large car; while
viewing the world through its large wraparound windshield is a delight to the senses. The once mighty Packard, fell into the pages of history in 1958 as a rebadged Studebaker. It certainly, wasn’t a fitting end for one of America’s best cars, but the 1955 Caribbean showed the world that Packard could still build a great car. This fine Packard, presents prospective buyers with a perfect opportunity to acquire an outstanding piece of Packard history.

118 1928 PORTER TOURING CAR from
MY MOTHER THE CAR • Authentic George Barris Kustom Industries custom car
• Featured in the 1960’s TV show “My Mother the Car”
• From the Harrah’s Auto Collection Chassis Number: F0414XF Estimate: $50,000 - $75,000
As the undisputed “King of Customizers,” George Barris who began chopping, channeling, and lowering cars at a very early age and just when television crossed over from black & white to color in the 1960s, George Barris was the man that Hollywood called on when a custom TV car was required. Indeed, many of Hollywood’s most famous detectives, crime fighters, movie stars, and musicians all called on the great George Barris for their custom car needs. Through the years Barris masterfully created some of the most iconic television and movie vehicles of all time like the famous Batmobile,
Munster coach, the Monkey mobile, and the Green Hornet to name a few. Thus, when producers introduced the concept of a television show featuring a talking car with a mind of its own, they naturally turned to George Barris to create it. The debut of “My Mother the Car” aired on September 14, 1965, starring Jerry Van Dyke who played the role of attorney David Crabtree and his 1928 Porter Touring car featured the antics of David Crabtree who buys a used and dilapidated 1928 Porter touring car. The car turns out to be the reincarnation of his deceased mother, voiced by actress
Ann Sothern, she talks to him through the car’s radio. The car is subsequently restored and becomes the basis for the show’s antics. The “hero” or star car came from noted actor and hot rod builder Norm Grabowski. Starting with a 1924 Ford Model T hot rod, the studio modified the car with an extended engine compartment, Model A Ford wheels, a brass radiator with the “Porter” script, running board-mounted spare
tire, and an outboard fuel tank. Early in preproduction it was realized that a second car would be necessary to create the special effects needed for the show. The studio contacted Barris and the stunt car was finished in record time. Barris and his crew built the stunt car with the ability to hide a driver and give the illusion that it was driving itself through an elaborate system of levers and mirrors. With both the cars ready to
go, production got underway with 30 episodes filmed for the season. Offered here to the collector of unusual and unique vehicles is the actual stunt car built by Barris for “My Mother the Car”.

120 1956 Chevrolet Corvette • Dual quad carburetors • Matching number car • Full body-off-frame restoration
Chassis Number: E56S003536 Estimate: $110,000 - $120,000
The Chevrolet Corvette is a car that has many milestones. Born as the spark of an idea in Harley Earl’s design studios at General Motors in 1953, it had a shaky start, but ultimately prevailed to become America’s sports car. Certainly, the split window of 1963 was a highpoint, and the 1990 ZR-1 was a car that managed to give Ferrari a competitive performance run. Fuel-injection in 1957 gave the Corvette a whole new performance edge and the all-new C4 in 1984 outperformed both Porsche and the Ferrari. In the end, though every Corvette is special and the 1956 example offered here is a
stellar chapter in Corvette’s history. The Corvette for 1956 crossed the line with a little more luxury featuring; roll-up windows and an optional hardtop. An automatic transmission was optional and the dual carburetor option, also made the Corvette a force to be reckoned with on the street or on the track. Despite these advances, Chevrolet built only 3,467 Corvettes for 1956, making it the third lowest production run in Corvette’s history. In the present day, these icons are some of the best of the C1 cars, as they represent Chevrolet’s first step towards the ultimate refinement that the
Corvette is known for today. Offered here is an excellent example of the Corvette’s heritage in the way of a 1956 model finished in Venetian Red with Polo White coves and a White convertible top. This Corvette received a full body-off frame restoration that returned it to factory
new condition that looks absolutely stunning today. Many Corvette enthusiasts have lamented that the Corvette’s styling for 1956 could have been “locked in time” with new fenders featuring chrome trimmed headlights, a chrome outline of the side cover panels, integrated taillights on the rear deck, and
for the first time the Corvette had outside door handles. All the styling cues shine bright on this example, that also carries a rare drivetrain with the optional dual-quad engine mated to a Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission. This is also, a matching numbers car; that rides on wide white wall tires for a
nostalgic look and in 1956, Corvette’s upholstery choices were limited to just Tan or Red; this example carries an exterior matching Red with a White dashboard that gives it a supremely elegant appearance. The engine compartment is fully detailed and would score well at any judged competition. Indeed, the entire appearance of this 1956 Corvette is stunning from any angle and easily passes any close-up inspection. The Chevrolet Corvette is perhaps, the most iconic car ever built. What
started as a frivolous dream back in 1953, has become the standard by which most of the world’s performance cars are measured. This example with its stunning colors, fabulous interior, and dual-quad power is a Corvette that could stand alone at any show. For the true connoisseur of America’s best, this is a Corvette that deserves to be shown in the finest collection and offers its lucky owner the opportunity for highperformance touring on any road or track.

Chassis Number: 901072 Estimate: $300,000 - $350,000
Packard’s fine precision engineering was a hallmark of the motorcar industry for many years. It seemed that if a complex engine required mass production, Packard was the company that got the job done. This was no more evident that when Packard built the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine. Badly needed for the U.S. war effort, Packard built the Merlin V-12 as the Packard V-1650. Built by Packard, the V-1650 was used in its single-stage supercharged configuration in the P-40F Kittyhawk fighter and in the Canadian-built Hawker Hurricane. An improved two-stage supercharged version, then found its way into the
famous North American P-51 Mustang fighter, making it the most famous fighter plane ever built. Packard’s ability to build complex engines in large numbers enabled the U.S. to gain the upper hand in air superiority. So, successful was the Merlin engine in the P-51 that it was cable of escorting Allied heavy bombers from Britain to Germany and back, something that no other fighter at the time could do. All that fine V-12 engine technology started with cars like this one; a 1933 Packard Series 1005 Convertible Coupe Roadster finished in a lovely Gray, with
Black fenders and a Tan canvas top. This fully recognized CCCA Classic rides on a 142-inch wheelbase and there are very few cars that can match its dramatic length. Style, sophistication and classic elegance all come together in this remarkable car that features dual side mounted spare tires and a rumble seat for rear passengers. This Packard rides on wire spoke wheels with Red accents and wide white wall tires for the perfect nostalgic look. It all starts at the front, where the unmistakable Packard grille stands tall; while
the famous â€œFlying Swanâ€? hood ornament shows the way. Elegantly styled twin biplane bumpers are mounted both fore and aft and rear view mirrors are mounted on the spare tires. The appearance, attention to detail and bright colors of this Packard are impressive, but the true beauty is found within, as its mighty V-12 engine runs with the reassuring silence that this masterpiece was known for. The engine compartment is clean and fully detailed, with all wiring correct and all plumbing properly sorted.
The 445.5 cubic-inch L-head V-12 engine with 160 horsepower was a marvel of engineering that allows this large car to easily cruise at modern highway speeds. The history of this car is known, as it was owned for many years by Mr. John Wheatley of Tulsa, Oklahoma and then subsequently; sold to noted Packard collector, Robert Deforest who retained it, until his passing in the mid-1970s, when it was passed on to his grandson, Andrew Wilson, who maintained and preserved it to impeccable standards. It is
presented today by Dragone Classic Motorcars in the same condition as Mr. Wilson meticulously kept it. The Packard name is long gone and its old testing grounds in Shelby Township, Michigan are little more than a tourist attraction, but the fine cars that the Packard company built represent a bygone era. Long wheelbase cars, with bright colors and decorative interiors told the world that this was a car of class,
with a lofty position in the social order. This Convertible Coupe Roadster with its classic styling and Packard V-12 power, is a car that takes us back to a time when luxury ruled the road and the dependable Packard name was a fixture in the U.S. economy. For show or touring, this convertible coupe roadster is a car that makes a dramatic statement where ever it goes.

Chassis Number: 579M23067 Estimate: $75,000 - $80,000
The 1950’s was a time for trial and experimentation in the U.S. automobile market. Not only, were there grand styling cues like aircraft-inspired jet pods and tailfins, but engines were becoming more powerful by the day. Oldsmobile had an early start to the new space travel theme, when they introduced their “Rocket” V-8 in 1949, one of the first musclecars on the American road. Oldsmobile’s powerful V-8 engine helped put a face on the performance car and a new J2 option for 1957 helped propel Oldsmobile to some stellar wins at the race track.
Featuring a tri-carb set-up, the J2 was a terror that was favored by both Lee and Richard Petty. So, successful was the Oldsmobile J2, that NASCAR quickly banned multi-carbureted engines to cool things down a bit, but not before the famed Oldsmobile J2 had won five

125 1938 PACKARD TWELVE BRUNN ALL WEATHER CABRIOLET • Rare 1608 chassis • CCCA recognized Full Classic • Rare “All Weather” cabriolet by Brunn
Chassis Number: 410710 Estimate: $200,000 - $225,000
Historically, the United States has always been known for its power, greatness and incredible strength and what better representation for what the U.S. stands for than the mighty Packard. From its very beginnings, Packard was a company that offered an automobile that became an American icon that represented wealth, power and quality, especially when Packard entered the classic era and introduced its straight eight engine and of course it’s incredibly smooth V-12 models. Because of its
unbelievable engineering quality and design, Packard was known worldwide. The Packard twelve chassis was the choice of many prestigious and famous people and custom coachbuilders such as Dietrich, LeBaron, Rollston and of course, Brunn. This particular 1938 Packard Twelve is a custom All Weather Cabriolet by Brunn, one of only 3 built in 1938 on the 1608 chassis. The exquisite designs of Brunn, located in Buffalo, New York, could
be found on many of America’s greatest cars including Pierce Arrow, Cadillac, Duesenberg and of course, Packard. Early on, 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 coach built 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. In 1938 Brunn was awarded a contract to build a few Touring Cabriolets and All-Weather Cabriolets for their twelve-cylinder Model 1608 and 1708 chassis in 1939.
Normally 95 per cent of series-built production bodies would be shipped to the chassis manufacturer’s plant for mounting, but Packard requested that Brunn mount the Cabriolet bodies. Packard shipped the running chassis to Buffalo with a soapbox driver’s seat in place and gave Brunn
$150 for mounting the bodies. Most of the Brunn Cabriolets, Touring and All Weather, were sold by California Packard distributor Earl C. Anthony. With an incredible restoration, finished in gleaming black, this Brunn All Weather cabriolet is a
masterpiece. The interior is a work of art with fine wool broadcloth and chrome plated fixtures throughout. As the Brunn All Weather Cabriolet was built as an “owner-driver” car a nice balance is achieved in the interior by having the front finished in high quality black leather for the
driver and rear compartments also upholstered in the fine tan leather. If however a chauffeur is required a divider window is easily raised for privacy. The wonderful feature of the All Weather cabriolet versus a Touring Cabriolet is the front roof comes off for open driving for the driver as well as the passengers in the rear. All
woodwork is burled Walnut and there is also extra seating with folding jump seats. Power for this CCCA recognized Full Classic comes from Packardâ€™s mighty 473.3 cubic-inch V-12 rated at 175 horsepower, the second to last year for the V-12. The marvel of Packardâ€™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. For the collector of custom and exquisite automobiles, this custom Brunn All Weather cabriolet should be considered.

Chassis Number: 30837S1102024 Estimate: $30,000 - $38,000
The Chevrolet Corvette stands alone, as a world leader in the sports car market. Introduced as a 1953 Motorama show car at the New York Auto Show, it caused a sensation and GM decided to put it straight into production. There were many ups and downs, but by the early 1960’s, the Corvette’s place was solidified. Several generations of Corvettes followed and it is now recognized around the world as a premier sports car that runs with the best. In the present day, many are restored to stock specifications, but the Corvette is a car that lends itself to customizing with ease. Such is the case, with this 1963 Corvette, for in the world of the customized car, very few can exceed the quality, design, and excellence of this unique build.
This exceptional build is nostalgic in that it was modified in the 1970’s and was used for a number of years on the Autorama show circuit, as a display. It then went into storage, where it sat until, being recently discovered. It has now been recommissioned and is ready to prowl the streets again. This is an aggressive looking car from any angle with an excellent degree of craftsmanship in its body work. The flip-up head lights were removed and the lights are now permanently fixed in the grille; while the bumpers were removed for a clean and uncluttered look. An aggressive hood complete with air scoops gives it a mean appearance and the entire package is brought together, with custom side pipes in sinister Black. At the rear, the body has been widened in order to
accept its large tires and is fitted with air-ducts at the rear. In a marvel of paint technology the simulated air-ducts on the doors are actually painted and the fine artistry can fool even the best eye. The interior is fitted with a roll bar, but otherwise carries a factory stock appearance. Power for this Corvette comes from a 327 cubic-inch V-8 engine with a
four-speed manual transmission. All of this dazzle is neatly wrapped up in a beautiful Red finish with a deep reflective glow. Restomods may be all-the-rage in the collector car market, but this build from the 1970â€™s gives us a glimpse of the formative days of custom car design.
Very few custom-built cars go on to achieve legendary status, but this Corvette with its unique features is a car that combines craftsmanship, artistry, and technology. For the very best in a car that is truly unique, this Corvette could certainly, serve as the centerpiece of any world class collection of fine automobiles.

127 1963 Studebaker Avanti • Rare factory air-conditioning • Rare four-speed transmission • Recently serviced
Chassis Number: 63R3842 Estimate: $30,000 - $35,000
The roots of Studebaker go all the way back to the carriage, when they were one of the nation’s largest builders of horsepulled vehicles. Their vast knowledge of suspension systems, axle design, and sturdy construction, helped them move easily into motorcar production. Their first car came in 1902 and was powered by electricity. Business took off from there and Studebaker was soon selling thousands of cars and trucks. Gas powered cars soon followed and the company was now, offering a car for every purpose. By 1920, Studebaker had become the nation’s fourth largest car builder and they also, built their last horse drawn carriage that year. Through the coming decades, Studebaker built a car for every purpose, but in 1963 they shocked the world with the fabulous Avanti. This was not your average Studebaker as it was sleek, powerful,
and offered the ultimate in a personal luxury and performance car. Design work for the Avanti was developed at the direction of Studebaker President, Sherwood Egbert. The design itself was handled by the great Raymond Loewy’s team of Thomas Kellogg, Bob Andrews, and John Ebstein. In an incredible feat, they completed their work in just 40days and the Avanti has since, stood the test of time. The Avanti was new and different with a radical fiberglass body that was mounted on a modified Studebaker Lark Daytona convertible chassis. Power came from a modified 289 Hawk engine making the Avanti an excellent performing car. By using a fiberglass body and a Hawk engine the Avanti quickly, became noticed on the street, as there was nothing else like it on the road.
Offered here is an excellent example of this iconic car in the way of a first year 1963 Avanti finished in Studebaker’s “Avanti White” with the R1 option that featured a 289 cubicinch V-8 with 240 horsepower. This car was bought new in Studebaker’s home state of Indiana, then went to Texas, and then came to Connecticut in 2009. This Avanti has been wellcared for and has recently had some cosmetic refreshing in order, to maintain its good appearance and condition. Recent work included, a
new dashboard, new head liner, a stainless steel exhaust system, new brake cylinder, new disk brakes, the fuel line was replaced, and a new aluminum gas tank, heater core, shocks, tires, and a battery. The fourspeed transmission was also, rebuilt and a new speedometer cable installed. The rear end received new seals and the carburetor was rebuilt, with a new manifold gasket installed. All windows and doors were serviced and work, exactly as they should. All this work has ensured that this
Avanti runs, as well as it looks. This Avanti also carries rare factory airconditioning and has the ultra-rare four-speed manual transmission. The long and sleek lines of Raymond Loewy’s design made the Avanti a special car. Its long and low nose was sleek and the absence of brightwork, made for a simple and streamlined car. In the end, Studebaker built just 3,834 Avantis and this example, with its rare options is a car that any collector would be proud to have in their stable of fine cars.

308 cubic-inch inline six-cylinder engine from 145 to 160 horsepower. This allowed the Hornet to accelerate from 0-60 in just 12.1 seconds with a top speed of 107 miles per hour, for an L-head six-cylinder engine, this is a very impressive feat. Proof of this was found in the NASCAR racing season of 1954 when Hudson’s Hornets took the checkered flag in 17 out of 37 races.
The Hudson Hornet represents an important chapter in automotive design, by taking a giant leap forward and introducing a daring new style; Hudson literally changed the direction of the automobile. With its excellent styling and Twin-H power, this Hudson is most certainly ready for touring any distance in both speed and style.

131 1968 Jaguar XKE Series 1 OTS • Matching-numbers drivetrain • Documented by its JDHT Certificate • 30,000 original miles
Chassis Number: 1E17054 Estimate: $85,000 - $110,000
In 1961 the Jaguar XKE was introduced to the world and has since been considered one of the most beautiful motorcars ever created. Even Enzo Ferrari admitted that it was one of the most beautiful cars that he had ever seen. Of all the E-Types the first of its kind, the Series 1 cars, are the most sought after version of the historic E-Type cars with their “small mouth nose” and early style taillights located above the rear bumpers which were produced through 1968. Beginning with a 3.8 Liter twin cam 6 cylinder engine carried over from
the XK150 3.8 S cars, in 1964 Jaguar decided to enlarge the displacement of their bulletproof twin cam six to 4.2 liters which was to be used until the end of the Series 2 car production. Like many other cars, certain years become a transitional period where a later design is merged with an earlier one, sometimes resulting in a car that has the best attributes of both designs, which brings us to the 1968 XKE. 1968 was the last year for the Series 1 and because of this it was the most refined version. Still retaining the bodylines of a series 1, but adding
the upgraded Stromberg carburetors from the outdated SUâ€™s, adding the more modern rocker switches on the dash replacing the toggle switches and beginning half way through the 1967 model year, the covers on the headlights were removed for better visibility at night. Overall the
1968 model year is the most refined version of the legendary Series 1 offering the looks of the Series 1 and the best upgrades of the Series 2.

• Original Engine and Transmission as last raced
Estimate: $80,000 - $90,000
Since the very beginnings of the Automobile, there has always been the need to compete and see who had the fastest and most powerful automobile. Grand prix racing and endurance racing were the main types of auto racing for manufacturers to compete and show who had the superior car, but later in the 1930’s, making cars fast, was not just for sportsmanship, but for alcohol and money. In the southern part of the United States prohibition had prompted bootleggers to modify their cars to outrun police when transporting their moonshine. By the 1940’s races featuring these modified street cars were held for fun and for money and NASCAR was born, becoming the largest and most
well-known racing association in the United States. Richard Petty, or “The King” as he is known today, is statistically the most accomplished driver in the history of NASCAR. He won the NASCAR Championship seven times winning a record 200 races during his career, winning the Daytona 500 a record seven times, and winning a record 27 races (10 of them consecutively) in the 1967 season alone. He also collected a record number of poles (127) and over 700 Top 10 finishes in his 1,184 starts, including 513 consecutive starts from 1971–1989. Petty was the only driver to ever win in his 500th race start, until Matt
Kenseth joined him in 2013. He was inducted into the inaugural class of the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2010.

It raced at the 1978 Daytona 500, Riverside, Richmond, Rockingham, Atlanta, Bristol, This 1978 Dodge Magnum is the Darlington, North Wilkesboro, last Chrysler product raced by Martinsville, Talladega, Dover, Richard Petty. Built by Richard Charlotte, Nashville, Michigan, and Petty and Petty Enterprises at Level Pocono. At the Daytona 500, Petty
broke away in the last lap and was leading for a short time, but the car lost traction at 195 MPH, spun out and did not finish. Then Kyle Petty, Richardâ€™s son, won the ARCA 200 in it in 1979. The car was then run again by Kyle Petty at the Daytona 500 in 1980 under #42 but did not
finish during the Daytona Twin 125 qualifier. So the car was then retired to the Petty teamâ€™s garage, and then sold by Petty to R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company for use as a show car. R.J. Was not allowed to use the Petty STP trademarks and copyrights so they painted the car Maroon, now with #1 on the doors and used it as a show car for one year on the Winston Cup Circuit be shortly after placed on display at the Joe Weatley museum in Darlington, North Carolina. It then was given to a Mr. Bill Kaiser of Darlington Motor
Speedway upon his retirement and made its way back in the hands of Richard Petty and repainted in its original 1978 season livery with the Petty orange and blue color scheme and of course with #43 gracing the doors. Bill Kaiser then sold the car to the current owner in 1995, and was very shortly after placed on loan to Humpy Wheeler, and kept on display at the Charlotte Motor Speedway until its very recent decommission. The Petty Magnum is a very interesting car and one of few original Petty race cars that still
exist today and is complete with a certificate of authenticity from Richard Petty authenticating that this is the original car that he raced in the 1978 NASCAR season. This is a chance to own a great piece of NASCAR history driven by arguably the best NASCAR driver in the history of the sport. Offered here at No Reserve.

133 1948 Pontiac Silver Streak Wagon • Lowest Mileage Woody in Existence • 4900 Original Miles • Ex- Jim Adams Collection
Chassis Number: P8PB5930 Estimate: $125,000 - $150,000
The beauty of real wood has never been lost on the American motorcar. In the beginning, wood was an integral and structural part of framing and support. As the years past wood was found in the interior of many high-end motorcars with fine joinery and finishing that rivaled that of the best furniture. Long the favorite of suburban life was the wood-bodied station wagon. Everyone from Packard to Ford offered a “Woodie” wagon at one time and these gorgeous cars were not only beautiful, but they were also very expensive. Indeed, Ford’s twodoor coupe for 1941 sold for just $775
while the Super Deluxe wood-bodied station wagon went for $1,015. For anyone who had $2,490 burning a hole in their pocket in 1948, Pontiac had the dazzling Streamliner “Woodie” wagon. Featuring real wood and smart styling, the Streamliner seven-passenger wagon
from Pontiac was an attractive car from any angle.

Regular varnishing through the years have helped to preserve this most vital component of the wood-bodied wagon. All hardware including hinges, screws, and fasteners have all of their original finish and the leather roof is the factory original. Power for this Pontiac comes from an inline eight-cylinder engine that runs smooth and drives just like it should. Steering is tight in the front-end and it shifts with ease. This wagon rides on wide white wall tires and features acres of gleaming chrome with a beautiful burgundy finish.
The wood-bodied station wagon has long disappeared from the motoring landscape, but this Streamliner is a car that takes us back to a whole different era. With its fine wood and charming 1940s styling, all this wagon needs is a few kids and a Golden Retriever. If your collection lacks a rare car that no one else has, this “Woodie” is a great car for show that’s also capable of taking the family out in style.

134 1909 Ford Model T TOWNCAR • Updated 1920s Model T drivetrain • Unusual town car body • Formerly in the Austin Clark collection
Chassis Number: 5105162 Estimate: $15,000 - $25,000
ord’s Model T was one of the most F popular and versatile cars ever built. Sedans, phaetons, coupes, convertibles, roadsters, and pick-up trucks were all built by the millions by Ford, but one model that saw very few numbers in the Model T line-up was the town car. Usually reserved for grand cars like Packard, Marmon, Stutz, or Duesenberg, the town car was the tool of the elite. By separating the proletariat chauffeur from the wealthy owner, the town car enabled its rear seat occupants to chat in privacy, while the driver sat outside exposed to the elements. The town car’s design was
elegant, sophisticated, and long, which is what makes this Model T town car so interesting. Not only is it a truly opulent car built on a simple Model T platform, but it also features several styling cues that are seldom seen on any car. The original history of this Model T town car that once resided in the Austin Clark collection is not known, but we do know that it followed the general rule of thumb for the affluent in society, in that the chassis was updated to allow for the latest in technology. In this case, this 1909 body was fitted to a later Model T chassis from the 1920s. This allowed
it to be used for several more years beyond its expected lifetime. No coachbuilder tag is present on this car, but its finely sculpted lines and elegant styling suggest French origins. A most unusual arrangement is found in the entrance to the rear whereby an aerodynamic cover is
found in place of the front passenger seat, which lifts-up to allow for entry. There is no other town car that uses this unique styling cue, which makes this one even more interesting. Rear passengers are treated to furniture style comfort in a compartment that features elegant
trim appointments that are usually found on a Packard or Cadillac. The open driver’s compartment operates like a Model T, but has an elevated degree of sophistication, with beautifully finished woodwork and a large steering wheel. As this town car rides on a later model chassis
it is also, equipped with an electric starter. Other stylish features include; a side mounted wicker basket, rear luggage trunk, brass head lamps, a brass bulb horn, and a folding front windshield. This Model T also wears a beautiful restoration that is both
authentic and highly detailed. The town car was a specific car for a specific use and this Model T town car is a most unusual example of this purpose-built car. Perhaps, it was used as a second car at the estate,
or even a car to take her ladyship into town. Whatever its purpose, this most uncommon car has no equal in terms of eccentricity. No collection is complete without that unusual artifact and this Model T does all that and more.

135 1963 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint • Rare Giulia variant with 5 speed gearbox and 1600cc engine • Timeless styling by Bertone’s Franco Scaglione • Attractive color combination • Excellent candidate for AROC events and rallies Chassis Number: AR356129 Estimate: $55,000 - $65,000
Alfa Romeo has gone down in automotive history as one of the greatest automobile companies there ever was. In the prewar era, Alfa dominated the racing circuit with the Scuderia Ferrari racing team racing in 6C 1750’s and 8C2300’s. Besides racing, many of the prewar Alfas were subject to many of the greatest coach built bodies there ever were including bodies by Touring Supperleggera, Pininfarina, and Castagna. In the immediate postwar era Alfa continued the production of its 6C2500, and in 1950 they began production of its 1900 model, the first Alfas to ever be made
on an actual production line, although many of the 1900’s had custom bodies by Pininfarina, Vignale, Ghia and Touring. The 1900 also proved to be a wonderful car both successful on the race track and on the street, having success at Alpina and the Targa Florio Alfas slogan for the 1900 was “the Family car that wins races”. Finally in 1954 Alfa introduced the Giulietta which was, like the 1900, a 4 cylinder twin cam, but smaller at 1300cc and capable of 102MPH in its stock form. Alfa offered the Giulietta in Sprint and Spider form and later with a special body by Bertone called the “Sprint
Specialeâ€?, but also offered both the Sprint and the Spider as a Veloce which added two dual choke side draft webers, a higher compression head with larger valves and tubular headers letting the engine breathe much more than a regular Giulietta. In 1962 Alfa replaced the Giulietta with
the Giulia and upped the engine size to a 1600cc and added a 5 speed transmission, but kept the beautiful Bertone body design through the 1963 model year. They updated the Giulia again to the 105/115 body style also known as the Sprint GT and later the GTV making the 101
series Giulia Sprint with the 1600cc engine and 5 speed gearbox a very rare version of the beautiful Bertone designed coupes. Alfa produced 193,000 Giuliettas over its 11 years of production where as in the two years of the 101 Giulia Sprint, Alfa only produced around 1500 cars.
This car, a 1963 Giulia Sprint is a very interesting car indeed and one that certainly carries the great weight of Alfa’s heritage well. Not only because it’s a rare 101 Giulia with the 1600 twin cam engine and the 5 speed gearbox, but because it is so original and has period dealer installed performance upgrades including a Veloce manifold with twin dual choke Weber carburetors and tubular headers like its predecessor, the Gulietta Veloce, only much more powerful. It’s finished in it’s beautiful original dark blue color and a grey and blue cloth and leather combination interior as original. The car was just treated to a mechanical going over
which included going through the entire transmission, carburetors, fuel lines, fuel tank and brakes. The body and undercarriage are extremely well kept showing that this car was never abused and there are no signs of ever having any rust issues anywhere. This wonderful example of a Giulia Sprint is just out of a 40 year ownership in Pennsylvania and is ready for a significant sports car collection or to be driven and enjoyed as it is eligible for AROC events and rallies. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to acquire this wonderfully well kept low production 5 speed 1600 Giulia Sprint.

When Shelby’s GT500 was introduced in 1967, it was the most aggressive and powerful version of the incredibly popular mustang. Under the hood lay a massive 428-cubic inch V-8 that was topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and could produce 360 brake horsepower. Not only did the GT500 offer more in the way of power, but it also offered more in terms of luxury trimmings than the slightly less powerful sibling did. Unlike the GT350, the GT500 was also offered in both coupe and convertible body styles.

The works of Italian automobile designer Giorgetto Giugiaro are among the most famous in the world. Indeed, his signature is on some of the most regarded and fastest cars in the world; the Ferrari 250 Berlinetta Bertone, the De Tomaso Mangusta, Iso Grifo, and the Maserati Ghibli. This rare talent also designed camera bodies for Nikon and computer prototypes for Apple. So great was Giugiaro’s work that he was named Car Designer of the Century in 1999 and inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 2002. In can be stated that no other designer had more of an influence on the automotive world than
Giugiaro for he was a man with vision, taste, and an incredible eye for a wellbalanced design. Offered here is an incredibly original example of Giugiaro’s work, in the second collaboration with Colin Chapman of Lotus, with this 1980 Lotus Esprit S-2, finished in Monaco White. The S2 Esprits were a completely hand built motorcar, very seldom seen in the industry by 1980. With just one registered owner and less than 25,000 miles from new, this car has been fully maintained, well-cared for and always garaged, never driven in snow or rough northeast weather. It has
also received several performance upgrades made by a Lotus specialist including a stainless steel header, exhaust pipes and muffler with dual 40MM Weber DCOE carburetor conversion making reliability and response that much better. This Lotus has been expertly maintained and fully detailed, with all of the work on body and trim components completed to the highest standards.
So detailed is this Lotus that all door handles, headlights, and signal lights, were removed for cleaning and inspected before reseating. The original Speedline alloy wheels have also been expertly restored and inspected. The interior is a high optioned factory full black leather throughout, It has also received full attention with all components including seats, carpets, door panels
and center console removed from vehicle and completely cleaned and detailed. The leather dash and instrument panel was cleaned and detailed in place. All of its original carpets were removed for cleaning and original button fasteners were repaired prior to replacement. The leather seats, center console, door panels and dash components were all restored with a three part leather
restoration system. All interior mechanical systems including handbrake, glovebox, door latches, buttons and switches were given attention and now work just as they should. Power for this Lotus Esprit comes from a 1,973cc dual overhead cam sixteen-valve fourcylinder engine rated at 160 bhp. The engine was not overlooked in this car with process and products according to Lotus specs. A (used)
Factory Service Manual travels with the car. Engine components were cleaned, aluminum brushed and polished.

139 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series II • Matching numbers engine • 3 owners from new • Factory installed sunroof • Complete known history
Chassis Number: DB4496L Estimate: $575,000 - $625,000
Five years in development, the Aston DB4 was a completely new animal for Aston Martin, sharing close to nothing with its predecessor, the DB 2/4 Mk III. To many collectors the DB4 is a perfectly proportioned motorcar and is the car that paved the way for the DB5 and DB6 cars. The tubular chassis design of the DB 2/4 MkIII was replaced by a completely new steel frame design. The body was also now designed by Touring of Milan, using their praised Superleggera construction process,
with hand-formed aluminum alloy panels over small-diameter steel tubing. Tadek Marek designed a new DOHC 6 cylinder engine, inspired by and based on the DBR2 racing motor and was capable of propelling the DB4 to 141 mph, with four-wheel disc brakes to bring it down from speed. The prototype was taken to Brown’s farm for him to test in 1957, and, with typical understatement, he pronounced it “a very promising
motor car.” As the DB4 underwent numerous changes throughout its five-year production, the AMOC Register has divided DB4s into five series, which roughly correspond to the continuous running changes during production. To many, the series II’s are amongst the most striking versions of the DB4, having some of the most outstanding features of all the DB4’s.
This car, chassis # DB4496L, is an original left hand drive car sold new in New York City in 1961 to a Mr. Sidney Rapoport who owned the car for the next 20 years. Mr. Rapoport sent the car back to Aston Martin shortly after purchasing it in 1961 because he had decided he wanted to change the color to British racing green and had the sunroof added for better ventilation. It wasn’t until 1985 when the car was sold
to its next owner, a Mr. John L. McDonald. During his ownership of the car he had the car painted and reupholstered by Automotive Restorations of Stratford, Connecticut in the late 1980’s and new brakes and clutch installed. At this time the car was stripped to bare aluminum and painted back to its original colors of Silver with a red interior. He showed the car at the Lime Rock Concours winning second in its class. In
1994 the car was then sold to its current owner who during his time with the car has had the engine completely rebuilt by Frank Buonanno at Black Horse garage of Bridgeport, Connecticut in
2001. Following the engine rebuild the car completed the New England 1000 rally twice and in 2014 the car had a new clutch installed. This is a chance to own a wonderfully well sorted, and
very original matching numbers DB4 series II with a documented 3 owners from new history. An admirable value in todayâ€™s market.

140 1950 Chrysler Imperial “Sedanca DeVille” by D.M. Nacional • 323 cu. In. Imperial flathead straight eight engine
• 4 speed automatic transmission • rear wheel drive four wheel drum brakes
Estimate: $15,000 - $20,000
When custom coachbuilders come to mind, the great French, Italian and German coachbuilders are the few that really stand out, but there was another coachbuilder in Mexico that was making some really stellar bodies on American car chassis between 1950 through 1955 named D.M. Nacional. Founded by a Mexican business man by the name of Ruiz Galindo Jr. who had a love for cars and especially custom coachbuilt cars after a trip he had taken to Europe where he experienced some of the great French and Italian coachbuilders of the time. American cars were the most
common in Mexico at the time and parts were most abundant so American chassis made the most sense. Cost for the D.M. Nacional custom bodies ranged from $3000 to $6000 dollars exclusive of the cost of the chassis, which was quite a bit of money considering a new Cadillac at the time was around $7000. Ford’s, Mercury’s and Chryslers were the most popular chassis used and Ruiz Galindo would make the car to the customer’s specifications. For example, he once added six ash trays in a car for a Chicago business man, a wealthy student ordered a car with leather book
cases and a radio fan had a car built with no less than three radios inside the car. Much of D.M. Nacional’s designs were very much inspired by the great European designers and these design cues can be seen in many of their bodies. This brings us to one of D.M. National’s most interesting and stylish coachbuilt cars, the 1950 Chrysler Imperial “Sedanca DeVille”. This particular car by D.M. Nacional is a wonderful example of how European inspiration was instilled into D.M Nacional’s designes. The
front fenders sweep all the way back through the rockers into the rear fenders, just like Saoutchik of Paris. It has a low and long roof line with a removable front section like a sporty and proper European custom Sedanca would have and a very graceful and sweeping rear deck that really gives it a spectacular look. â€‹ Even though there were quite a few D.M. Nacional customs commissioned during the time it was in business, little to none of their creations still exist today which is
why it is such a treat to see a real D.M. Nacional custom coach built car in person. Not much of this cars history is known other than it is believed to have been originally commissioned and built in 1950 or 1951 and was finished in a sporting yellow and black paint scheme with a green interior and an original photograph can be seen of the car sitting in front of the D.M. Nacional building upon its completion. It was much later purchased by its current owner in Connecticut from its previous owner over 30 years ago. The car has been
sitting since then and is presented in its current condition complete with its original D.M. Nacional body tags and its original custom fixed landau bars. Although it is in somewhat tough condition, it would be an incredibly interesting and wonderful car to restore and bring back to its original magnificence. Any concours would be enamored to have this car present on their show field. A true piece of coachbuilding history, and possibly the only D.M. Nacional left today.

Chassis Number: 50382605 Estimate:$130,000 - $140,000
The honor of pacing the most prestigious sporting event in the world is something that cannot be taken lightly. Indeed, Oldsmobile, Chrysler, Nash, Lincoln, Studebaker, Pontiac, Chevrolet, Ford, and Buick have all paced the Indianapolis 500 field over the years. These were dazzling cars with powerful engines and bright graphics that let the world know who was out in front. For 1956, the officials at Indy selected DeSoto to pace the 40th running of the great race, but there was a problem; DeSoto’s top-ofthe-line Adventurer was not available as a convertible for 1956, a requirement for a pace car at the time. DeSoto quickly
assembled a Fireflite with an Adventurer drivetrain and suspension and the race was on. Of course the general public wanted a piece of the action and DeSoto obliged with a replica Indy Pace car built on the Fireflite line. In the end just 186 of these gold and white beauties were built making them a rare car in the present day.
Offered here is a 1956 DeSoto Pace car that has been nicely restored and presents in fine condition. With its dazzling graphics and bold styling, this is not a car that stays under the radar at any event. DeSoto
certainly pulled out all the stops with loads of chrome and gold anodized hub caps. A space age inspired hood ornament is sleek and sexy as its points the way on the hood. The interior features a jewel like
dashboard layout and its two-tone gold and tan upholstery speaks directly to the wonder fabrics of the 1950s. Shifting is easy thanks to Chryslerâ€™s push button gear selection and this pace car is even fitted with
DeSoto’s center mounted and selfwinding steering wheel clock, a very rare option. Under the dashboard is Chrysler’s “Highway-Hi-Fi” record player that was manufactured for DeSoto by CBS Electronics. Clearly DeSoto skimped on nothing when it came to outfitting their pace cars with options. Under the hood is DeSoto’s 330 cubic-inch V-8 with 255 horsepower, more than enough power to pace the field. The engine compartment on this pace car is
nicely detailed with correct colors and all factory components in place. The privilege of pacing the fastest race in the world gives honor and prestige to any manufacturer and for 1956 DeSoto carried the field with style. No one could have known that in just a few years the DeSoto brand would be relegated to the pages of history.

142 1965 Jaguar XKE Series 1 OTS • Rare and unique “barn find” • Untouched original • Stored for four decades • Engine in running condition
Chassis Number: 1E11022 Estimate: $45,000 - $55,000
The “barn find” cars are very popular in the current car collector market. Sometimes they’re found in a garage, in a basement, or sometimes they’re even found deep in the woods with trees growing all around them. It is indeed, a special set of circumstances that can allow a car to go untouched for decades at a time. Whatever the case, these are interesting artifacts of automotive history, as they sit in dormancy for an extended period of time, without a single hand being laid upon them. Lost in time, these cars still carry their factory markings, special trim pieces, and factory accessories
without molestation of any kind. No one really knows what makes these cars so interesting to collectors, but perhaps, it’s the excitement of owning something that is still in its true factory form. Whatever the case, barn finds are indeed a rarity in the world of the collector automobile. Offered here is a textbook case of these forgotten relics in the way of a 1965 Jaguar Series I E-Type that reportedly has had just one owner from new and shows its last registration on the road in 1977. This Series I recently was brought to light after four decades in storage and stands as a testimony in time of
an untouched car. It was located in a barn in upstate New York, while holding a New Jersey registration, suggesting that it was used as a weekend retreat car at a second home. No major service work has been performed, but a battery was installed and all lights work and the motor does turn over. All parts
appear to be accounted for, with the exception of the air-cleaner, which is still being searched for. The path that this Jaguar could take, has several options that run from just putting it back on the road, to a full restoration. Whatever the outcome, there are very few E-Types that can claim this level of authenticity.
The “barn find” is a rarity, but the discovery of a car like the Series I E-Type makes this a truly unique find. Whether preserved “as-is” in all of its original glory or restored to concours condition, this E-Type represents a rare opportunity to be only the second owner of a 52-yearold car.

143 1931 Cadillac V-16 Lancefield Convertible Victoria • Sporty one-off coachwork by Lancefield of London
• 1931 Earl’s Court Motor show car in London
• Well-known ownership history Chassis Number: 702873 Estimate: $550,000 - $650,000
The dark times of the Great Depression took its toll on many of America’s great car builders. Before the stock market crash, society’s elite had the choice of great cars like Marmon, Duesenberg, Stutz, Peerless, and Pierce Arrow all with custom bodies from any of the great coachbuilders. When the U.S. emerged from this era all these great cars had been relegated to the pages of history. One can only wonder what would have become of Cadillac, were it not for the deep pockets of General Motors who not only managed to build some astounding cars during the Great Depression, but also threw caution to the wind and built the mighty V-16 engine. If
one’s place in society was determined by the number of cylinders in their car, the Cadillac V-16 proclaimed to the world that its owner held a lofty place in the social order. This was an exclusive engine for a very few who could afford its lofty price tag. In the present day, these engines are a marvel as they idle silently and run with the whisper quiet competence of a Rolls-Royce. In the very pinnacle of the classic era, the mighty Cadillac V-16 had no equal. Cadillac’s magnificent V-16 never looked better than in this 1930 Convertible Victoria with coachwork by Lancefield of England. Long, low, and sleek are just a
few of the words that describe this incredibly elegant car that features Cadillac’s fine mechanicals with bespoke European coachwork. The chassis was shipped to Lancefield’s London shop in 1930 and upon completion was exhibited at the Earl’s Court Motor Show in London. The history and provenance of this Cadillac is known, as it was
owned by the same family for over 60 years before coming to the U.S. in the 1990s. It then underwent a full restoration where it was refinished in its present livery of a two-tone Black and Green that accentuates its beautifully sculptured lines. This Cadillac then spent some time in an Austrian collection and participated in several prestigious
events. Upon its return to the U.S., it was prominently displayed at such respected shows as the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance in 2011 and the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in 2012. As one of London’s finest coachbuilders, Lancefield was well-known for their ability to create sporty lines on a large and opulent car and this example is no
exception. Indeed, chassis #702873 typifies the very pinnacle of the classic motorcar with its incredibly long hood and low-cut windshield with a steep angle that gives it just the right degree of bravura. At the rear is an accessory luggage trunk for extended touring and the interior is finished in fine Russet Brown leather that is so elegant it carries the
look and feel of fine furniture. Very few cars carry the sheer elegance of the jewel-like gauges of this Cadillac and the fine woodwork speaks to an era of true craftsmanship. The Cadillac V-16 is a car that represents the very finest of the Classic era and this Victoria is special in that it carries its American chassis
with fine European coachwork with a level of sophistication that is both rare and beautiful. The chance to own a car like this is perhaps; as rare as the car itself. For the very best, from the very heart of the best years of the motorcar, this Lancefield-build Convertible Victoria, with V-16 power represents an opportunity to own a unique piece of automotive history.

When we think of Porsche, our thoughts usually turn to rear engine sports cars, with excellent handling and power to spare, but when Porsche began thinking about a replacement for the 911 a new direction took hold. The result, was the famous 928, a car that was capable of sports car performance with a level of “Grand Touring” comfort that met and exceeded anything that Ferrari or Maseratti had on the road. In fact, the 928 had the distinction of being the company’s first production V-8 and the fact that the engine was mounted up front gave Porsche a whole new image. The 928 went on sale in late 1991 in Europe and arrived in the U.S. in the spring of 1992, as a 1993 model. These were expensive cars selling for $100,000 for a fully optioned GTS model. Clearly,
if anyone desired the ultimate Grand Touring experience in a German luxury sports car the Porsche 928 was the car to own. The 928 offered here is a spectacular example of this iconic car that is finished in Midnight Blue with a Gray leather interior. With just 24,155 miles on it, this is a car that literally, presents in new condition.

included; the replacement of two air cooling hoses on top of the engine and a full tune-up with OEM wires. The water pump has also, been replaced in order to ensure safe and smooth operation.

the shifter and all environmental controls while, seats are powered. This 928 is equipped with a 5.4 liter V-8 engine rated at 345 horsepower mated to a five-speed transmission. As a GTS edition it also, benefits from revised body work, larger front brakes, and its massive 5.4 liter V-8. The Porsche 928 GTS is a car that represents the very best in German
luxury and this example with its lowmileage and pristine condition is most certainly, among the very best. For the ultimate in a highly refined Grand Touring car, this 928 is ready to run.

• Wonderfully preserved condition Chassis Number: 396877M617082 Estimate: $125,000 - $175,000
Roadster” created for the hit 1960’s television show “Mannix.” The car was originally built for the series in 1967 and was used for the first two seasons of the show. When Barris first built the car for the 1967 season, he took a brand new stock 1967 Oldsmobile Toronado and cut the roof off, eliminated the back seat and made a custom tonneau covering the rear compartment making it into a two seat roadster. He then gave it a custom interior complete with a rotary telephone and secret hidden gun compartment. In Considered to be one of the best looking the first season the bottom of the car cars created for the big screen by Barris, was painted black and the headlights this 1967 Oldsmobile Toronado “Mannix had sealed beams in them. For the George Barris, “The King” as he is referred to today is considered one of the greatest customizers of all time. Unlike many of the other great customisers and hot rodders of the 1950’s and 1960’s, George capitalized on his talents, selling his creations to movie stars and television and movie production companies leading to some of the most iconic custom movie and TV cars of all time including the Batmobile, the Muster Coach and many many more.
second season of the show in 1968 Barris took the car back, changed the headlights to the Euro style halogen inserts, changed the bottom part of the body to red and redesigned the seats and added the heated seat feature with small vents for the heat to come through. The car is currently in the exact same original condition
that it was when it left the show in 1968 with original paint, upholstery and accessories including its original rotary phone. After it left the show in 1968 the production company sold the car to Charlie Woods who was an amusement park developer from New York. He was building the â€œGaslight Village and Amusement
parkâ€? in Lake George, New York at the time where he put the car on display in 1973 along with the Greta Garbo Duesenberg, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (movie car) and an assortment of other Barris customs including the Munster Coach, the Little Red Wrecker and Bob Hopes golf cart. Upon the closing of Charlie
Woods Gaslight Village the car was sold through the Kruse auction of the museum in the late 1980’s to its most recent owner who immediately put it on display in his own private Museum located in Bristol Tennessee where it was on display with the 1928 Porter
touring car from the show “My Mother the Car” also built by George Barris, and the “Rickshaw Taxi” another Barris custom built for the 1970 Worlds Fair in Tokyo, Japan. The car is also featured on the cover of book “Cars of the Stars” by George Barris

• 327 Cubic-Inch Inline Eight Cylinder Power
Chassis Number: H406456 Estimate: $60,000 - $70,000
Packard celebrated its “Golden Anniversary” in 1949. Having built his first car just before the turn of the century, James Ward Packard had firmly placed his company on the map as the Nation’s premier luxury car builder. Only rival Cadillac came close, and as Cadillac lived in the deep pockets of General Motors they never faced the challenges that Packard did. As the decade of the 1940s closed out, Packard’s Golden Anniversary cars were a carry-over from an all-new design of 1948, but they were dazzling, sleek, and aerodynamic. Offered here is a stellar example of Packard’s 50th anniversary in the form of
a 1949 Super Deluxe Eight Convertible finished in lovely Spruce Green with a tan convertible top. Packard’s Deluxe Eight rode on a 120-inch wheelbase and this one is fitted with wide white wall tires and fender skirts for a smooth and streamlined look. The styling cues for the Super Deluxe Eight were both tasteful and elegant as an upper trim molding started at the front windshield and terminated halfway across the rear quarter. A matching trim spear ran down the side and smoothly blended into a chrome tail lamp. Packard used its signature “egg crate” grille both fore and aft while the famous
Packard Pelican showed the way on the hood up front. This Deluxe Eight convertible wears a pristine restoration and presents as new in all areas. The interior is finished in fine leather and an elegantly styled dashboard features two large pods housing the speedometer and a
clock. Power for the Deluxe Eight came from Packard’s tried and proven 327 cubic-inch inline eight with 145 horsepower. The engine compartment on this one is clean and nicely sorted and it even retains its six volt electrical system. Indeed, there are very few Packards of this
era that can match this one in terms of authenticity. The year 1949 would turn out to be a good one for Packard with 59,390 cars sold. No one could have seen that America’s greatest luxury car would be gone by the end of the next
decade. Unable to weather the onslaught on the “Big Three,” Packard limped to the end on the back of Studebaker in 1958. This beautiful 1949 Super Eight Convertible is a car that represents an era of the American car that is long gone but not forgotten. Cruising the highway doesn’t get any better than in one of Packard’s fine cars and this Super Deluxe Eight convertible is ready for touring of any distance.

148 1930 Packard 745 Deluxe Eight Roadster • Preservation car • Packard Straight Eight power • Original canvas convertible top
Chassis Number: 182455 Estimate: $400,000 - $500,000
here are few car companies that made T a bigger impact on the U.S. auto industry more than Packard. When James Ward Packard bought his first Winton and did not care for its reliability, he was challenged to create a car of his own. The result, was the Packard Motorcar Company that went on to build premier motorcars for the next five decades. In that time, Packard built some of the most luxurious town cars, sedans, and limousines available from a U.S. car builder, but there was also, another side of this great company, which also offered a fine line of sporty speedsters and roadsters. Indeed, Packard’s roadsters had a stellar reputation as a
fast car, that handled well and had a sophisticated degree of styling, which was absolutely stunning. One such Packard, was the Model 745 Roadster a superbly styled car that had panache, speed, and comfort all in one package. The exclusivity of the 745 Roadster was demonstrated in its outrageous cost, as it sold for an impressive $4,585 at a time when one of Henry’s Model A roadsters could be had for just $430. For the money, what the buyer received with Packard’s roadster, was a car that gave the ultimate in motoring pleasure, with its distinct styling, all the world knew they were driving the very best.
Offered here is an excellent example of this iconic car, a 1930 Packard 745 Roadster with just 29,000 preserved original miles, that also features original paint and an untouched original canvas top. The history of this car is that it was sold new in Washington D.C. where it was used, until the 1940â€™s and then went to Pennsylvania where its last registration shows 1956. It then went to a man named Unger in Virginia
in the early 1960â€™s, as shown by a 1972 title. It then went into storage where it remained on jack stands for 40 years; until it was found and purchased from the Unger family by Dragone Classic Motorcars in 2016. The car was carefully examined and all mechanical systems were checked and adjusted; including an entire fuel system cleaning, carburetor rebuild, brake and clutch adjustment, and tightening of all fasteners. The
original lacquer paint was buffed to give a delightful shine, but retains a patina that only the hands of time can create. This Packard still retains its original firewall and body tags that attests to its authenticity. The Packard 745 is a rare car with just 1,789 produced, with approximately only 50 being roadsters and itâ€™s estimated that less than ten still exist. 1930 was the only year for the huge 145.5-inch wheelbase
Super Eight Packard, which makes the 745 Roadster one of the most special and iconic cars of all time. This outstanding roadster, with its stunning colors and dedication to authenticity is a car that gathers its fair share of stares; while also offering the ultimate experience on any tour. The Packard Company slogan, “Ask the man who owns one,” was never more clearly defined than in this beautiful roadster from Packard’s past.

Chassis Number: ZFFWA20B000068341 Estimate: $55,000 - $65,000
When Ferrari needed a replacement for the popular 308 GTS it required more than just thought. After all, the 308 had been in production for a full eight years, without any major changes.

The 328 proved to be a very successful car, with 7,400 built before production ended in 1989. The Success of the 328 can be measured in their popularity in the present, as these are

152 1950 CHEVROLET CONVERTIBLE • Preservation car • One repaint since new • 32,681 original miles
Chassis Number: HAM378492 Estimate: $32,000 - $35,000
As America crossed over into the 1950s a new style of car was firmly in place. Gone, were the outboard pontoon styled fenders, as the restyles of 1949 now featured cars that were losing the tall and boxy look that had defined styling for so many years. Things were changing quickly, with electrifying colors, jet-inspired styling, and dazzling chrome. Longer and lower was the order of the day and no one displayed this better than Chevrolet’s line of fine cars for 1950. So stylish were Chevrolet’s cars for 1950 that they were once again America’s number one automaker. Chevrolet had a car for everyone in
1950, but none were as glamorous, as the Styleline Deluxe five-passenger convertible. The dazzling example offered here, is a textbook case for the word “preservation.” With just 32,681 original miles, this stunning car has received little more than one repaint in its factory “Mist Green,” but all other components are original to the car. This convertible was sold new in Rhode Island and is a two-owner car that has been remarkably cared for and still retains its factory keys, floor mats, upholstery and convertible top parade boot. The upholstery is a two-tone stripe Cordovan with vinyl inserts, which has held up
remarkably well for a 67-year-old car. The dashboard is clean, with no buttons or knobs missing and the steering wheel carries the futuristic design that the 1950s were known for. Wraparound bumpers were the order of the day for Chevrolet and all chrome on this time capsule presents as new.

car, includes a radio and heater. The engine compartment carries a patina that clearly displays that this car is an unmolested survivor and all systems are fully functional with no issues. Driving is easy with a three-speed column mounted shifter and power from Chevroletâ€™s tried and proven 216.5 cubic-inch inline six-cylinder engine rated at 90 horsepower, that easily cruises at modern highway speeds. The 1950s, were a time like no other in
the U.S. For a brief time, the country enjoyed prosperity; while Detroit built some amazing cars. Before the decade was over, the wild fin would rule the automotive landscape, but for 1950, styling was tasteful, sophisticated, and elegant. This 1950 Styleline Deluxe Convertible is a car that takes us back to a time when cars were unique and different in their appearance. Whether on the show field or on the road, this convertible is ready to cruise.

Chassis Number: 181170
Estimate: $160,000 - $175,000
When America crossed over into the 1930s, the dark curtain of the Great Depression was like a gloomy cloud hanging over a nation that was experiencing the worst economy in its history.

stacked up. Before it was over, America would lose some of the best car builders in history. Packard struggled, mightily, and in the end, it did manage to outlast the Great Depression, only to be done in a few decades later. Despite the austere outlook, Packard entered 1930 with a fine array of great cars, one of which was the 740 Custom Eight Phaeton.

Chassis Number: LS24493 Estimate: $120,000 - $130,000
The Chrysler Corporation’s line of cars took on a new orientation when Virgil Exner joined Chrysler’s Advanced Styling Group in 1949. By 1955, his new “Forward Look” gave everything in the Chrysler line-up a new direction. DeSoto now, had some dazzling colors and loads of brilliant chrome. These were the heady days of styling in the American motorcar and thanks to Exner, DeSoto was at the forefront. Quite simply, colors were bright, interiors were jet inspired, and fins were reaching for the stars. It was a time like no other for American transportation. Offered here is an outstanding example of this great era, in the way of a 1958
Firedome Convertible. Finished in gorgeous Black with a Seacoast Aqua side trim accent, the subdued appearance of this elegant car, literally flies in the face of some of the overloaded cars of the 1950’s. This Firedome has been fully restored and looks new both inside and out. The front-end styling, features a full lateral length grille with a mesh inset and quad headlamps that were all the rage in the late 1950’s and gave it a classy appearance.

rear quarter and this Desoto rides on a set of wide white wall tires with DeSoto hub caps for a clean and smooth look. The interior has been restored to “like-new” condition in its authentic colors and DeSoto’s unique push button shifter sits to the right of a dashboard that carries a space-aged styling and a two-tone steering wheel.

over 300 horsepower. The engine compartment on this Firedome is nicely detailed and even retains the correct Mopar washer fluid bag.

cars of the era.

156 1935 PACKARD TWELVE CONVERTIBLE SEDAN • CCCA first place winner • High-quality restoration • Dual side mounted spares with factory covers
Chassis Number: 873232 Estimate: $175,000 - $200,000
“Ask the man who owns one,” were the words of J.W. Packard, when asked by his secretary about a reply to a letter from a prospective customer in 1901. With only two years of motorcar production under its belt, advertising for Packard was scarce, but the company had already earned a reputation for building a solid and reliable car. Packard’s fortunes continued to rise, as they became the Nation’s premier builder of fine luxury cars. By the 1930s Packard’s fine and well-appointed cars were gracing the marque lights of theaters and fine restaurants everywhere. Whether it was for a night on the town, or a gathering
at the country club, the Packard name stood tall at any society gathering. Offered here is a stellar piece of Packard’s heritage in this large and elegant Series 1208 1935 Packard Twelve Convertible Sedan. Early history indicates that this Packard was sold new in Paris in 1935, where it apparently led a very quiet life until, being acquired by noted California-based car collector, Art Astor where it was displayed in the Circle of Champions at the 2005 Packard International Southern California Regional meet. The next owner, further refreshed and preserved its appearance and continued to show the Packard to the
delight of everyone who saw it. In the present day, this Packard presents well and is ready for any show or tour. Riding on a huge 144.5 inch wheelbase, this is an imposing car that doesn’t make for an indiscreet arrival. The Packard grille stands tall at the front and is flanked by bullet styled headlamps and accessory trip lights. The Packard “Swan”
ornament rides proudly atop the grille and its beautiful lines are nicely accented by factory side mounted spares with metal covers. At the rear, is an accessory luggage rack for added space and this Packard rides on chrome wire spoke rims with wide white wall tires. Perhaps, the only thing more impressive than its exterior appearance is the interior
with gorgeous Tan leather throughout and a dashboard that literally defines the word elegant. Rear seat passengers are treated to furniture style comfort with finely bolstered seating, lush carpeting, and beautiful woodwork. Under the hood the mighty V-12 engine is highly detailed and correct with all wiring and plumbing properly sorted. The
stunning appearance of the V-12 engine compartment is solidified by a first-place award in a CCCA judged competition. The convertible top on this sedan is perfectly fitted and clearly shows the high degree of craftsmanship that went into the restoration. There are many cars that offer pedigree and prestige, but the grand Packard of the 1930s are in a
class all their own. This convertible sedan, with its attention to detail and Packard reliability is a car that is a lasting tribute to a bygone era. For outstanding looks, pedigree beyond
question, and performance that is worthy of its Grand Classic status, this is a Packard that deserves to be displayed in the finest of world class collections.

Chassis Number: GHN3L52397 Estimate: $22,000 - $28,000
No one builds a traditional sports car better than the British, great names like Jaguar, Aston Martin, and Morgan have been a mainstay in the sports car world for decades. Among these great names, is MG or Morris Garages, which started building cars in the 1920’s. MG underwent several ownership changes through the years and there was even a merger with Austin in 1952. One of MG’s most successful cars, was the MGB, which was introduced in 1962 by the MG division of the British Motor Corporation. The MGB was a big hit and stayed in production all the way until 1980. The design was timeless
and its mechanicals were both simple and reliable. The popularity of the MGB is proven by the fact that 523,836 were built over its 18 year production run and the MGB was the world’s top-selling sports car. Offered here is a rare and unusual example of this great sports car in the way of an early style 1965 Mark 1 “Pull Handle” Roadster in Classic Black. All early MGB’s, are easily recognizable by the pull handle design for opening the door. This MGB carries a full restoration that has returned it to factory-new condition. As an early Mark 1, it also
carries several features that were unique to the early MGB including; a metal dashboard, banjo style steering wheel, toggle switches, and a pull handle brake. The interior is beautifully upholstered in Red leather with Black piping and just sitting behind the wheel of this MGB, literally defines the open British roadster experience. Power for this MGB comes from 1,788 cubic-inch inline four-cylinder engine with twin Solex carburetors and is rated at 95 horsepower. MG also, introduced the new five bearing crankshaft in 1965 and these quickly, became known as
a remarkably durable engine. This MGB rides on a set of wire knockoff wheels and the chrome, trim, glass, and the convertible top are all presently in excellent condition. The MGB remains an icon of the British sports car experience. Indeed, there’s just something special about a true sports car that’s refined in every sense of the word. This 1965 Mark 1 is an example that represents the very best of the MGB heritage and can stand tall on any field, but is also a roadster that begs to see the open road on a fine summer day.

158 1938 CADILLAC V-16 CONVERTIBLE SEDAN • From the Joel Adelstein Collection of fine Cadillacs
• Cadillac V-16 power • Fully Recognized CCCA Classic
Chassis Number: 5270204 Estimate: $85,000 - $100,000
In the decade of the 1930s, ones place in society could be determined by simply counting the number of cylinders in their motorcar. For the working class, Henry’s Model A Ford was the car to drive, but would look woefully out of place in front of the Vanderbilt’s or Rockefeller’s grand palatial estates. There were several multi-cylinder cars to choose from in the classic era of the 1930s as Packard and Lincoln both had V-12s and Marmon had a V-16. Even the common General Motors and Ford cars offered eight cylinder power, but not to be left out was Cadillac, who introduced their V-16 in 1930. Steady refinement of the big V-16 engine meant that as the decade came to an end, Cadillac’s masterpiece
had become an engineering marvel as well as, a work of art. Redundancy was also the order-of-the-day with twin carburetion, twin fuel pumps, twin distributors, twin water pumps, and even a nine main bearing crankshaft. The result of this extraordinary engineering was an engine that was absolutely silent at idle and turbine smooth in operation. Cadillac built their V-16 only from 1930 to 1940, but in that time the V-16 reigned supreme as the ultimate engine for society’s elite. Indeed, the Cadillac name has always stood as a hallmark of fine American luxury and while many other manufacturers were content to build cars for the masses, it took a few more dollars to step up to the prestige
of a Cadillac. Long wheelbases, tasteful trim, and opulent interiors were just a few of the design features that the Cadillac name was known for. Offered here is an outstanding
example of this most prestigious chapter of Cadillac’s history, a wind Cadillac V-16 Convertible Sedan. The convertible sedan body style was once very popular with all of Detroit’s car companies offering a four-door
convertible, but Cadillac’s were bigger, better, and more powerful than all the rest. This example is from the Joel Adelstein Collection of fine Cadillacs and it has been maintained in order to ensure its
elegant and prestigious appearance. Starting at the front this massive Cadillac carries an enormous grille that is flanked by two body colored bullet headlamps; while Cadillac’s “Winged Goddess” hood ornament proudly shows the way. Side mounted spare tires complete with factory metal covers create a long
and sweeping appearance and the 1938 Cadillac still had just a hint of a running board below the doors. At the rear, three chrome Chevrons grace the lower rear fenders in pure Art Deco style and the V-16 emblems are prominently displayed on the trunk lid. As impressive is this large car, the interior is a true
delight to the senses with fine Tan leather and stunningly designed trim appointments that are fitting of the finest furniture. A large “banjo” steering wheel makes handling this huge car a snap and the dashboard is a tasteful and elegant design with all gauges within easy sight. At the heart of this Cadillac, is the mighty
V-16 engine with twin carburetors that musters 185 horsepower. This convertible sedan rides on an immense 154-inch wheelbase and is also fitted with wide white wall tires complete with V-16 hub caps. Very few luxury cars have been
able to sustain their place in the competitive luxury car market, but for over 100 years Cadillac has done just that. By building large cars that could carry passengers in definitive comfort, the Cadillac name has continued to survive over the years.
Even in the present day, the name is still synonymous with absolute comfort and luxury. The chance to own one of Cadillacâ€™s most prestigious motorcars is rare indeed and this is a car thatâ€™s sure to turn heads, wherever it goes.

159 1960 Austin Healey 3000 BT7 • Two owner car from new • Fully restored by noted marque specialist
• Austin Healey Heritage Certificate
Chassis Number: BT7-L9422 Estimate: $60,000 - $65,000
Very few cars elicit the true sports car character better than the Austin Healey 3000. Built from 1959 through 1967, it was a true British sports car in every sense of the word. Featuring a low center of gravity, smooth lines, and enough power to make it a spirited performer; the 3000 turned out to be a very successful car for the company. The 3000 was announced in 1959 as a replacement for the Austin 100 series cars and not only was it more powerful, it was also bigger, earning it the moniker “Big Healey.” Bodies for the 3000 were built by Jensen Motors and final assembly took place at British Motor Corporation’s
factory in Longbridge, England. The 3000 series for Austin Healey turned out to be a great car and in the present day they have a very dedicated following. Offered here is a 1960 BT7 which, is a great example of this iconic British sports car finished in Brilliant Red with a Black interior. The history of this BT7
is known, as it was bought new by a U.S. serviceman stationed in Germany in 1960 who brought it back to the states a short time later. He took excellent care of it until, parting with it in 2010 ending 40 years of ownership. Always garaged and
never driven in inclement weather, this example is a solid car that never had any rust. It was then fully restored by noted marque specialist, Sanford Ressler who brought it back to complete showroom condition. The fit and finish on this 3000 is amazing
with a deep gloss shine and all panels in correct alignment. This is a matching numbers Healey that would score high points at any judged competition. Austin Healey’s magnificent styling is clearly evident in its classic roadster design and
a BT7 in 1961 and recorded a 0-60 time of 10.9 seconds with a top speed of 112 mph. Performance like this made the 3000 a top player both, on the road and at the race track. For the very best, is this most iconic British sports car all this Healey needs is its third owner and Grand touring on a fine summer day the open road. doesn’t get any better than in an Austin Healey 3000 BT7, something the British magazine “The Motor” knew all too well when they tested this example features a fully detailed engine compartment and an interior that speaks to the very heart of the classic British roadster. This 3000, also has its Austin Healey Heritage Certificate and comes with both hard and soft tops.

160 1962 Ford Thunderbird Sport Roadster • Rare sports roadster package • New for 1962 390 cubic-inch V-8 • Rare color
Chassis Number:2y85z124073 Estimate: $25,000 - $35,000
When Ford introduced the new Thunderbird in 1955, no one could have guessed that it would out sell its rival, the Chevrolet Corvette by a wide margin. Marketed as both a sports and personal luxury car, the Thunderbird had it all. Unique styling, comfortable seating with a hint of indulgence and power to spare from a V-8 engine, turned out to be just what the motoring public was looking for. The Thunderbird remained a popular car, but in 1958 it parted ways, with its rival Corvette and became a four-seater. Indeed, the all-
new T-Bird for 1958 was a fabulous looking car that everyone loved. By 1960, Ford’s Thunderbird had become a highly refined design with large triple round taillights and a freshly restyled grille. It was perhaps, one of Detroit’s best looking cars and the numbers proved it. Sales for the Thunderbird in 1960, set a new record with 92,843 sold. Clearly, Ford could have continued the 1960 Thunderbird style for another year, but a major redesign in 1961 saw it get a new bullet shape, that was sleek and modern. The new third generation
Thunderbird, was sleek, classy, and was powered by a new 390 cubicinch V-8 engine. It was a beautiful design that lasted only three years, but those three years turned out to be some of the best the Thunderbird had seen.
Featured here is a stunning example from 1962, finished in Chestnut Metallic that is fitted with Ford’s “Sports Roadster” option. The Sports Roadster package, consisted of 48-spoke Kelsey-Hayes designed wire wheels and a special fiberglass
tonneau cover for the rear seats, that gave the appearance of a twoseat roadster. The Sports Roadster package was an expensive option and due to its high price, very few were built. The attractive color and fit and finish of this Thunderbird,
makes it a superb early example of the Sports Roadster. This car has been fully maintained and looks, as good as it runs. It rides on its correct Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels with the period correct thin white wall tires that gives it the perfect look. Sitting inside the 1962 Thunderbird, is like piloting a jet fighter in a cockpit that features; a huge center console that extends all the way to the rear seat and gives the driver a “Buck Rogers” feel. A futuristic steering wheel completes the look and nicely
complements its jet-inspired design. The dashboard carries the “Super Sonic” design theme to a new level, with protruding instrument pods and a wraparound theme. This Thunderbird also carries power steering, power brakes, and power windows. Power for this Thunderbird comes from a 390 cubic-inch V-8 that was new for 1962 and proved to be one of Ford’s best engines. For the very best in early 1960s motoring, the Thunderbird clearly, had it all.
The personal luxury car has always, represented a rather special niche in the car market, but the Thunderbird is the car that literally, wrote the book on it. While the Corvette may have remained true to its sports car roots, the Thunderbird went on to appeal to a wider audience and became one of America’s best cars. Prospective buyers should look this one over closely, for top down motoring on a fine summer day doesn’t get any better than a 1962 Thunderbird with the rare Sport Roadster package.

161 1915 Harley Davidson Model K Race Bike • Excellent restoration • Harley V-Twin power • Authentic board track racer
Chassis Number: 1157K Estimate: $50,000 - $60,000
Long before NASCAR or the NFL became America’s favorite sporting events there were other forms of entertainment. Boxing was big and even gained momentum with the advent of the radio, horse racing was also, popular and there were local tracks everywhere. When adventurers started fitting bicycles with engines; a whole new mode of transportation was born and it wasn’t long before the race was on to see who could build the fastest bike. Enter the board track, a sport so daring that it ultimately claimed a number of lives, before being relegated to history. From around 1910-1920 these daring souls, gathered on circular or oval race tracks with running surfaces made from wooden planks. Known officially as “motordromes” these board tracks
were the home of fierce competition and regularly gathered thousands of spectators, as brave men vied for the win on machines that defied death itself. Indeed, it took more than skill, luck, and knowledge to race one of these machines. It took raw courage to circle a track at high speed with nothing more than an engine kill switch for brakes. The Great Depression managed to eliminate most of the great board tracks, but in its brief time, motorcycle board track racing made a lasting impression and several of its elements are still present today in modern motorsports with steep angled corners and stadium style seating, to name a few. Offered here is a relic from these bygone days, with a 1915 Harley Davidson Model
K Race Bike. The 1915 Model K was a stripped down version of Harley’s civilian Model E with a shortened rear frame section and a direct gear drive. Weight was reduced by eliminating the front fender and the rear fender was clipped and narrowed. Further, weight was reduced by eliminating the sprung seat-post, primary engine cover, and footboards. The riding position was also lowered by adding dropstyle handlebars with shortened ends. This fully restored Model K features all of these attributes and is finished in burnt Orange and Tan
with Black pin stripes. All Model K’s, were manufactured to the rider’s specifications and were not built exactly the same, with items such as; the clutch, brakes, forks, handlebars, frame, and paint finish all built at the factory according to the customer’s desires. This example had the good fortune of being finished with a good amount of brightwork that looks great against its brilliant colors. This is a concours restoration and it has been authentically restored to racing condition. Most impressive is the noise that emanates from its two open exhaust pipes that gives this
racing bike a glorious sound from the past. The detail in the engine appearance is simply stunning and this bike runs, as well as, it looks. The days of board track racing are long gone and there are very few examples of these incredible machines left to tell the story. This Model K, with its excellent restoration, is capable of reliving its glory days from the past, but also makes for a fabulous display in any world class collection.

Immediately following the fall of the hammer, the Buyer shall be required to execute a Confirmation of Purchase, which confirms Buyer’s purchase of the Vehicle or non-motor vehicle property as announced by the Auctioneer. Every Bidder shall be deemed to act as a principal, unless prior to the commencement of the auction there is a written acceptance by Dragone Auctions of a Bidder Registration Form completed and signed by the principal, which clearly states that the authorized bidding agent is acting on behalf of the named principal. No person shall be entitled to bid at the auction, unless they have complied with the requirements of the General Conditions, including, without limitation, registering in advance with Dragone Auctions by completing all such registration forms and any other documents required and providing financial and other information as Dragone Auctions, in its discretion, may request or require.

The Auctioneer has the sole discretion, in the case of any dispute, to continue bidding, refuse a bid, cancel a bid, determine the successful bidder or reopen bidding. In any dispute, Dragone Auctions records, whether audio, visual or written are conclusive. Once made, a bidder may not retract or rescind any bid.
NONCOMPLIANCE OF BUYER/REMEDIES
If the Buyer or a bidder fails to comply with any of the General Conditions, including, without limitation, a Buyer or bidder fails to pay the full Purchase Price and/or remove a Vehicle when and as required by these Conditions of Sale, the Buyer or bidder, as the case may be, shall be in breach and default of the General Conditions, and shall be liable to Dragone Auctions, and each bidder and Buyer agree that Dragone Auctions shall be entitled to recover from such Buyer or bidder, as the case may be, any and all damages, costs, expenses, fees (including attorneys’ fees) and other amounts suffered and/or incurred by Dragone Auctions as a result of such failure to comply (including, without limitation, any such damages, costs, expenses, fees and other amounts suffered or incurred as a result of suit(s) by the Seller or other third parties). Further, in such event of a failure to comply, Dragone Auctions may, in its sole discretion, at any time and from time to time, in addition to all other available remedies under the General Conditions, at law and otherwise, and without any notice to such Buyer or bidder, take any one or more of the following actions to the fullest extent allowed by law (a) hold the defaulting Buyer or bidder, as the case may be, liable for the Purchase Price and all damages, costs and expenses suffered or incurred by Dragone Auctions as a result of such default and failure to comply, including, but not limited to, initiating legal action against the Buyer or bidder, including, without limitation, an action for specific performance; (b) cancel or rescind the sale; (c) resell the Vehicle(s) with or without reserve privately or at public auction and the Buyer or bidder shall be liable for any deficiency between the Purchase Price (plus all damages, costs, expense, fees (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Dragone
CONDITION OF SALE CONTINUED Auctions as a result of noncompliance and all commissions, premiums and fees applicable to such resales) and the price received upon the resale; (d) remove or arrange for the removal and storage of the Vehicle(s) at the sole risk and cost of such defaulting Buyer or bidder; (e) offset any sums due from Dragone Auctions to the Buyer or bidder against the Purchase Price and all other amounts due and owing by the Buyer and bidder under the General Conditions; (f) repossess the Vehicle(s) for which the Purchase Price or any portion thereof is unpaid, and resell such Vehicle(s) and apply the sale proceeds against amounts owed by such Buyer or bidder under the General Conditions; and/or (g) take any other action that Dragone Auctions in its sole discretion deems necessary or desirable, including any combination of the foregoing remedies. If Buyer or bidder has purchased more than one Vehicle and Dragone Auctions receives less in payment than the total due for all Vehicles purchased, Dragone Auctions shall, in its sole discretion, apply the funds received toward payment of whichever Vehicle(s) it determines, regardless of what the Buyer or bidder may or may not direct. Each Buyer and bidder by registering to bid or by placing a bid at the auction hereby agree to grant Dragone Auctions and Dragone Auctions shall be deemed to have a first priority security interest in, and Dragone Auctions may retain as collateral security for such Buyer’s or bidder’s obligations to Dragone Auctions, any Vehicle(s) and any other property in Dragone Auctions possession owned by such Buyer or bidder and any and all proceeds (including proceeds as defined under the Uniform Commercial Code in effect in Connecticut), including insurance proceeds, of any of the foregoing. Dragone Auctions shall have all the rights and remedies provided to a secured party under the UCC and shall be entitled to file one or more financing statements as Dragone
Auctions may desire, with regard to any and all such Vehicles and other property, and shall be entitled to sell any such property in Dragone Auctions possession and apply against the Purchase Price and other amounts due and owing by the Buyer or bidder the proceeds from such sale. If Buyer or bidder defaults and Dragone Auctions elects, which it may do in its discretion, to pay the seller a portion of the net proceeds due Seller with regard to the sale of the Vehicle, Dragone Auctions shall have all the rights and remedies of Seller against the Buyer or bidder, including, without limitation, the right to pursue the Buyer or bidder for all such amounts and any and all other amounts, damages, costs, fees and expenses as may be available under the General Conditions, at law, in equity or otherwise.
Estimates (which do not include the Buyer’s premium or any taxes) for the Vehicles printed in this catalogue are only opinions, are prepared well in advance of the auction, are subject to change and may be amended either orally or in writing prior to or at the auction. 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.
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.
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”). Payment of the full Purchase Price is due to Dragone Auctions on or before 5:00pm eastern time at the auction location on Wednesday, September 6, 2017. 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.

If not removed timely by Buyer, in addition to any and all other remedies and rights Dragone Auctions may have, Dragone Auctions shall have the right (but not the obligation) to remove any Vehicle at Buyer’s sole risk and expense and store it, at Buyer’s expense, including, without limitation, removal, storage,
transportation and handling expenses and costs and applicable taxes, at a third-party warehouse, and Buyer hereby grants Dragone Auctions an irrevocable power of attorney to remove and store such Vehicle(s) at Buyer’s expense. Except in Dragone Auctions sole discretion, no Vehicle(s) shall be released to Buyer until Dragone Auctions has received payment in full, in good cleared funds, of the Purchase Price for the Vehicle(s), and Buyer has fully complied with the General Conditions.
The Buyer is responsible for determining whether or not an export permit is required to export a Vehicle and for obtaining and paying the costs of any permits or licenses necessary to export any Vehicle from the United States and/or import it into any other country, and for the payment of any import duty that may be levied by the country of import. Dragone Auctions makes no representation or warranty of any kind with regard to whether or not any Vehicle can be exported or imported or the issuance of an export or import permit for any Vehicle.

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,

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.
