ot 10 1 L 1958 Morris Minor 1000 2-DR Sedan Designer: Alec Issigonis Estimate: $15,000 - $25,000

WITHOUT RESERVE

Dependable Mechanics, Restored, and Ready

Part of Growing Segment in British Vehicles

Elegant City Classic with Luggage and Rack

Chassis Number: FBB43/573513 Decoded: FB=2-dr Sedan; B=Light Gray color: 4=Export to North America; 3=Series III; 573513=Serial Engine Number: 9MUH367351 Engine: 948 cc OHV In-line 4-Cylinder SU H2 Carburetor / 37 bhp 4-Speed Manual Transmission Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes

The Model - BMC, parent company to Morris, set out to create a post-war passenger car that was efficient, compact, reliable, and comfortable for up to four people. The result was a sedan that would meet all the requirements plus handle with surprising ease. When introduced in 1948, it was praised from the media and sales started to roll in. Not only did England respond, but buyers and North America also took to this perky little sedan. There were a number of styling changes, most notably was raising the headlights up to the top of the fenders. Engine sizes grew a bit and in 1956, the Series III, “1000” was born with the new 948 cc engine. With consistently strong workmanship during assembly, simple engineering, and smart looks, the Minor was in production from 1948 up to the early 1970’s, and it was the first British car to break the million mark in production.

18 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car - This Minor would be a major addition to any collection. Restored in the past few years, it presents quite nicely and the color combination is subtle yet elegant. Well sorted out mechanics have been tested on the road and it was found to warm up quickly and slip into gear properly with good road speed pick up. Body panels are straight with both of the doors, the bonnet, and boot all lined up with smooth even gaps. Brightwork on these cars was minimal, but the grill surround, bumpers and trim bits all show nicely with minimum age, scuffs, or other blemishes noticed. With simple mechanics, handsome looks, and dependable performance isn’t it time you allowed a Minor in your collection?

Early 3rd Generation w/ Chrome Bumpers

Great Driver Quality Corvette

Chassis Number: 194370S403035 Decoded: 1=Chevrolet; 94=Corvette; 37=Coupe; 0=1970; S=St. Louis plant; 403035=Serial Engine Casting Number: 14016379=77-79 350ci V-8 Engine: 350 cid OHV V-8 Cylinder Motor 4 Barrel Carburetor / 300 bhp 4-Speed Manual Transmission Power-Assisted Four Wheel Disc Brakes Mileage: 37,975 (Showing on Odometer - Actual Unknown)

The Model - When the Corvette was first introduced in 1953, it was a hard sell to GM’s executives and only with the encouragement of Zora Arkus-Duntov and Ed Cole did America’s sports car survive. Known as the straight-axle models, the sleek Stingray of 1963 brought the second generation Corvettes, which gave away just five years later to the beautiful “Gen-3” family. Introduced for the 1968 model year, these daring streamlined coupes had been inspired by the Mako Shark II show car created by the talented Larry Shinoda under the direction of GM’s Chief Stylist, Bill Mitchell. Several elements were employed such as the nearly vertical “sugar-scoop” styling for the back window which had been used on a mid-engine experimental model. Effectively in production for 15 seasons, the 3rd generation Corvette lasted as long as the first two generations combined. The Car - This example was treated to a cosmetic restoration at which time the original engine was replaced with a similar vintage small block 350 V-8. At the same time all of the suspension parts were checked out including the disc brakes, and the Rally wheels were restored to their factory fresh condition. During the restoration this coupe was treated to a complete color change from its original Donnybrook Green to the handsome looking Monza Red. The originality of the black vinyl bucket seats was kept and the interior shows in great shape. Since its restoration this Corvette has seen light usage and stands ready to hit the street to provide many miles of pleasurable highway cruising. 20 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

ot 10 3 L 1953 Kaiser Henry J Corsair 2-dr Sedan Designer: Howard “Dutch” Darrin Estimate: $15,000 - $25,000

WITHOUT RESERVE

One of America’s First True Compacts

Stylish Fastback Design

Able to Perform at Modern Highway Speeds

Chassis Number: K533-55066 Decoded: K=Kaiser; 53=1953 year; 3=Henry J; 55066=Serial Engine: 134 cid L-Head In-line 4-Cylinder 1 Barrel Carburetor / 68 bhp 3-Speed Push-button Automatic Transmission Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes Mileage: 24,866 (Showing not Documented)

The Model - During WWII, Henry J. Kaiser had become a master of production with his ability to build Victory ships which ferried men and materials to the war fronts at such a rapid rate, the enemy just couldn’t sink them. After the war, Kaiser entered the car business with moderate success and knowing that small cars in Europe were popular, set out to produce a price-leading compact for America, thus was born the Henry J. Enlisting the design genius of Howard “Dutch” Darrin, these cars were attractive and peppy, but priced at $1399, they were only a few dollars less than a full-size Ford or Chevrolet. However, these cars did find some dedicated owners. The engine was sourced from Willys, and was the same four-banger that had powered the war-winning Jeeps. With room for four, and sharp lines even for today, these cars are a rather unique chapter in motorcar history. The Car - This example appears to have been given a cosmetic restoration several years ago and is the basic bare-bones type of transportation that Mr. Kaiser had hoped to provide the motoring public. Finished in Ivory White paint, the interior is upholstered with heavy-duty crinkle-style vinyl on the seats and door panels with a tan print fabric for the seating surfaces. The centrally mounted instrument cluster monitors all the important engine functions including fuel level, oil pressure, engine temperature and charging status. When first introduced, the taillights were mounted low in two pods, but they were moved to the top of fins in subsequent years. This economy model features no options such as clock, radio or even a heater, keeping it simple. A rather obscure part of automotive history, this would be an interesting addition to your collection if you should tire of your everyday collector car. 22 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

ot 10 4 L 1936 Ford Deluxe “Rumbleseat” Coupe Designer: E. T. “Bob” Gregorie Estimate: $40,000 - $60,000

Flathead V8 w/ Offenhauser and Dual Carbs

Highly Optioned with Rumbleseat

Superb Driver w/ Safety Seatbelts

WITHOUT RESERVE

Chassis Number: 2766100 Engine: 221 cid “Flathead” V-8 Cylinder Motor 2x1 Barrel Stromberg Carburetors / 95 bhp (est) 3-Speed Manual Transmission Four Wheel Mechanical Drum Brakes Mileage: 31,035 (Showing not Documented) The Model - Even though America was still in the grips of the Great Depression, the economy was seeing some return to normal conditions by the mid-1930’s and one of the contributors of this was the automobile industry. For 1936, Ford featured an attractive new “bullnose” radiator design with independent headlights mounted high atop the fenders. Interiors were becoming more comfortable and as such were much more enjoyable to ride in. There was a growing list of accessories that could be installed by the factory or by the delivering dealers at the owner’s request. For those wanted a little more “go” from their Ford, several aftermarket suppliers produced speed equipment that could get that little “flathead” to go even faster. For performance, style and resale value, customers had to look no further than Ford in 1936, which was promoted as being “Designed for Dependability.” The Car - One of the most popular body styles for the 1936 Ford was the Deluxe five-window coupe. Coming standard with the V8 flathead engine, this model had a base price of $555, less than a comparable Chevrolet with “six”. A total of 29,935 examples were produced and this is one of that has survived in stock condition. Well accessorized, in addition to the factory rumbleseat, it features period correct fog lights with turn indicators added, front grill guard and fender skirts. What really matters here is what is under the hood. Offenhauser heads offer better cooling with their finned design as well as larger water capacity to keep that flathead engine running cool, On top is an “Offy” dual carburetor intake manifold topped off by a pair of Stromberg carburetors. With old-school performance this is the perfect presentation of pre-war Americana. 24 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

ot 10 5 L 1957 Chevrolet 210 Townsman 4-dr Station Wagon Designer: Clare Mackichan Estimate: $30,000 - $45,000

Iconic Design Station Wagon

Rarely Seen Export Model

Top-Shelf Restoration All Around

WITHOUT RESERVE

Chassis Number: B57MX3352 Decoded: B=Chevrolet Series 210; 57=1957; MX=Mexico City Assembly; 3352=Serial Engine: 265 cid OHV V-8 Cylinder Motor 2 Barrel Carburetor / 162 bhp 3-Speed Column-Shift Manual Transmission Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes The Model - One of the most iconic automotive designs ever is the 1957 Chevrolet, as American as baseball, hot dogs and apple pie. But not all 1957 Chevrolet’s were built in the USA. Chevrolet had an active export operation offering either “built-up” exports or Complete Knock-Down kits. Imagine getting a large wooden crate and inside were all the parts to put together a complete car. Prepared at GM’s Bloomfield, NJ, export center, these “kits” were sent around the world including Mexico City, Mexico. There, local craftsmen painted, trimmed and assembled the cars, after which they received a local serial number that indicated where they were built. By having local labor help build the car as well as sourcing items like paint, soft trim and other materials from the country where they were built, a major savings on import duties were seen which saved the customer a good chunk of change. The Car - Sporting a restoration one might expect to find on a convertible, this Sierra Gold and Adobe Beige “210” Townsman station wagon has been given the all over treatment. Built at GM’s Mexico City facility, it is powered by the base 265 cid V8 engine, rarely seen for 1957. It’s unique in that it never had a heater installed, but it does have a proper dash-mounted clock. The dash-mounted radio is a period Motorola push-button unit, again, locally sourced as a cost savings to the customer. Using proper soft trim materials, and patterns nothing was overlooked including the expansive headliner. The engine and transmission also received a tune-up during the restoration. This is a very unique opportunity to buy a 1957 Chevrolet that was “Hecho en Mexico”. 26 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

High Quality Build and Materials

LS2 V8 Performance w/ 6-Speed Manual

Vintage Looks w/ Modern Mechanics

The Model - When Chevrolet introduced the Stingray Corvettes, they were the most sensational sports cars Americans had ever seen. Even 50 years later, the lines and basic form of the “mid-year” Corvettes exude speed and power. For whatever reasons, sometimes one of these beautiful machines meets a builder who may take a car that would otherwise be parted out and lost to history, and add their custom touches along with modern advancements in power-train, electronics, handling, and other areas that improve an already out-standing design. The Resto-Mod trend today has seen a number of incredible builds while retaining the original features that made these cars so legendary. This 1965 coupe is one of those cars that has been built for looks and performance, and it skimps on neither one of those elements. The Car - Finished in Tuxedo Black with a red stinger hood, this Corvette is powered by a strong LS2 V8, which puts out not only 400 hp, but an equal number of pound-feet of torque. Sitting on a set of custom “fishtail” style alloy wheels, swift sure stops come from a set of disc brakes, while a side exhaust styled after original equipment completes the picture. Driver and passenger are cradled in a pair of modern black leather seats as they view the full assortment of Pro-Comp gauges, listen to the modern stereo and keep cool with the vintage air-conditioning. Driving this Stingray on steroids is described by saying “the hands of an experienced driver deliver optimum performance”, with a sensitive hydraulic clutch the engine power is transferred to the wheels quicker than expected delivering an exhilarating ride. 28 W W W.

One of the Most Comfortable of All Sports Car

Concours Restoration of all Components

Desirable 4-Speed Manual & A/C

The Model - After the success of the E-type Series I and II with Jaguar’s proven DOHC in-line six, the next generation was released in 1971, this time sporting twice as many cylinders. A welcomed addition for roadster owners was the additional foot room provided by moving this body to the longer wheelbase platform used by the 2+2 coupe. While retaining the original lines of the first E-type, these longer bodies gave the car a lower looking profile. Up front a new larger opening for the air intake was seen along with new grilles and starting in 1973, federally required bumper-ettes up front and to the rear were installed. Wheel wells were flared out to accommodate the new wider track of the suspension. For many, the Series III E-types were the ultimate expression of a civilized sports car which delivered outstanding performance, but in a luxurious well appointed setting. The Car - Starting with a well preserved original car, this E-type recently received a rotisserie restoration. Shining brightly is the cars Regency Red which is complemented by a Biscuit leather interior. This car presents quite well and is very inviting to all who gaze upon it. Completing the picture of beauty is the properly fitting tan soft top and a set of chrome wire wheels. Retaining the original power-train, it has been brought back to its optimum performance, ready to take to the road. Equipped with a period correct AM-FM radio, all the gauges have been restored to factory standards and, best of all, this roadster is air-conditioned! The investment into bringing this E-type back to its original beauty was substantial and will be a great addition for any collector looking for the ultimate civilized sports car. 30 W W W.

Beautiful Presentation of Very Desirable Model

Chassis Number: 6606201 Decoded: 66=C9 Chrysler Airflow; 06201=Unit Number Engine: 323.5 cid L-head 8-Cylinder Stromberg EXV3 single-barrel Carburetor / 115 bhp 3-Speed Manual Transmission Vacuum Assisted Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes Mileage: 83,620 (Believed to be actual) The Model -When Walter P. Chrysler formed his own company, he was blessed with the wisdom and talents of three wise men; Owen Skelton, Fred Zeder, and the unofficial leader of this group, Carl Breer. Each of them had decades of automotive engineering, skill and design talents. In designing the Airflow, this team looked to the latest in aircraft design, incorporating a “form follows function” goal using lines developed in a wind-tunnel. By moving the engine more forward better weight distribution was achieved, passenger compartment was also moved to where it was completely between the axles improving the ride and comfort. The body’s flowing lines were assisted by the first major use of a unibody type construction where the “truss-bridge” chassis was actually the backbone of the body. Airflow was a car born just a little too early, but established a trend and construction techniques that are still used today. The Car - It is believed that no more than 9 or 10 of these Airflow sedans exist and we doubt that any of them are better presented that this beauty. Always easy to start this car has been restored in typical period colors of dark burgundy with black fenders. The in-line 8-cylinder engine runs smooth and the transmission goes through the gears like a hot knife through butter. Finished in a striped tan broadcloth, the passenger compartment is well appointed with radio, heater-defroster and full instrumentation including a clock. All chrome and bright work has been brought back to show-room fresh and the glass is without cracks or blemish. The Art-Deco ornamentation stitched into the door panels was replicated to perfection on this car. With doors that close tight and easy and mechanics that are swift and sure, this car is the ultimate is streamlined motoring. 32 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

First Year of New Body Style

Designer: Howard “Dutch” Darrin

Rarest Traveler Wagons

Well Accessorized w/ Period Luggage

Estimate: $40,000 - $60,000 Chassis Number: K512-077693 Decoded: K=Kaiser 51=1951 2=Deluxe 077693=Serial Engine: 226 cid “L-Head 6-Cylinder Carter WGD 2-Barrel Carburetor / 115 bhp 2-Speed Hydramatic Automatic Transmission Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes Mileage: 57,380 (Believed to be Actual)

The Model - Henry Kaiser had seen moderate success in his automotive endeavors but he realized that his first series of cars was growing stale. Enlisting the talents of “Dutch” Darrin, his original designer, a new modern line was developed. In 1951, the new Kaisers hit the market and they were attractive, stylish, yet contemporary. Under the hood was the Continental Red-Seal engine, which was a bit underpowered, but with the availability of an automatic transmission, anyone could drive a Kaiser. Traveler was an effective utilitarian vehicle which featured a fold-down rear seat and America’s first production “Hatchback”. The trunk could be expanded to the rear passenger compartment and wood-ribbed flooring allowed for loading and unloading everything from luggage for an extended trip, to camping and hunting supplies. Once unloaded, it converted back to a six passenger sedan in less than a minute. Traveler was Kaiser’s version of the family station wagon. The Car - You have to ask yourself is, “When is the last time you saw one?” This very unique, all American automobile has great eye-appeal, is a rarely seen collectible car which could also be used for utilitarian needs, albeit, with lots of care as to not nick or mar the beautifully finished exterior or interior of this car. Finished in gleaming black paint its lines are accented beautifully while the interior is finished in dark red “Alligator Skin” pattern vinyl, a Kaiser original touch. Notice the “Darrin Dip” styling touch on the side panels and the unique treatment on the windshield and backlight in the hinged hatchback. Well-appointed this Traveler features windshield sunvisor, factory AM radio, heater-defroster and a collection of period travel needs including luggage, ladies overnight case and even a hatbox. When you take a trip, there is no better way to go than the Traveler by Kaiser. 34 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Model - Known as the Datsun in the United States, and as Nissan to most of the rest of the world, by the late 1960’s this Japanese based company had transformed its image, to one of an all around quality car-maker. No doubt it was Yutaka Katayama’s demands that Nissan design and build cars able to keep up and compete with European and American cars, while at the same time delivering excellent engineering, economical operations and world class performance for the “Fairlady” sport car. Thus was born the Z-car family. The third generation, the 280 models, received Bosch fuel injection, improved suspension plus handling, and sought after a 2+2 configuration. The Car - Rarely does a car that is untouched or as original as this example is, ever found. Even rarer is seeing it come to the auction market. Sporting just 1,353 miles from new, this virtually untouched example is just as it left the factory. When a restorer wants to bring their Z-car back to factory perfection, this will be the “pattern-car” used, for it will set the standard for authenticity. Finished in Bronze Poly metallic, it still features it original tires, title, books, and manuals. Even the tools and tire jack are still in their original wrappers including the shipping box from Nissan. With more prestigious events recognizing preserved cars, this 280Z is sure to be in high demand for exhibition and will bring home more trophies and awards than even a fully restored example could ever dream of.

They were similar in size, though the Mini was lighter and used a more conventional type of engine, in-line, overhead valve, water cooled 4-cylinder as opposed to the VW’s horizontally opposed, air-cooled four banger. The original cars had plenty of power, got great gas mileage and were fun to drive. It didn’t take long for the performance crowd to arrive and start trying to get more and more out of these little cars. Larger displacements, modified induction and all the tricks of trade made Mini’s a force to be reckoned with. In the USA today one of the most active segments in the SVRA are the classes created for the mighty Mini. The Car - This little Mini Cooper S was converted to a racing vehicle a number of years ago. It was purchased by our consignor from an estate already equipped and ready to go. Prior history is unknown but since its acquisition, according to it SVRA Logbook, its use has been limited to several charity runs, however, it has not been used in any competition. Fitted with a fully approved roll-bar, a totally adjustable suspension, and electronic ignition, the only thing this Mini needs is a current safety inspection before hitting the track. The engine was recently prepared by Phil Wicks Racing where all valves were cleaned and polished and the carburetors were properly adjusted. A complete set of Hoosier TD racing tires is also included in the purpose. We are sure that when you get behind the wheel of this Mini, you will enjoy the experience to the max! 38 W W W.

While the “911” model name has remained the main-stay of this legendary marque for decades, a program on constant improvements keeps these cars at the top of many sports-car enthusiasts “must-have” list. So many improvements were instituted by 1973 that it internally at Porsche, known as the G-series. Most notable on these cars were the USA mandated safety bumpers and the switch to the Bosch fuel-injection system. With the “S” series it meant even more power was now available, as well as improved suspension, handling and braking power. Now with over a half-century of history under its belt, the 911 lives on as one of the best engineered and most reliable sports coupes ever produced. The Car - The original owner of this 911S was different than most, rather than putting this car through its paces and driving it into the ground, he babied this car from the start. Finished in its original Grand Prix White, the original black leather seats are well preserved as well as Fuchs alloy wheels. Sure to qualify for historical preservation awards wherever it is displayed its overall finish has a light patina of age, but no signs of any bodywork or other concerns. While it sports off its original gauges, it does have an upgraded stereo system that appears to be from the 1980’s. The engine compartment is tidy and unmolested, save for the highly polished coil. With the constantly growing interest in these 911’s, isn’t it time for you to see what all the excitement is about from behind the wheel of this little coupe.

Officially known as the “E-Type” to most Americans the moniker XKE is much more common and in the current world of quality collector cars, these sleek little “Open Two-Seaters” have because sought after. During the run of the E-type the basic styling was retrained, though simple improvements were always being made. The purist form of this car is with the 3.8 Liter engine. The Car - Our consignor tells us this car was purchased from the original owner in 1965 by Richard Bedwell who wanted to compete in SCCA events, but his employer, Ford Motor Company, cancelled those plans. With just over 38,000 miles from new, this red E-type was soon nearly forgotten, used only on rare occasions. After Mr. Bedwell’s passing the car was purchased by well-known Jaguar expert who kept the car in its original condition. Over the ensuing the years the only major cosmetic change being the replacement of the soft top, done in original black canvas. With one older exterior respray today this E-type still retains its original seating surfaces as well as all mechanics, its Blaupunkt AM-FM radio and a complete set of tools in their original cloth roll, plus a file folder full of receipts and documents from as far back as 1965. As the interest in these Jaguar sports cars continues to escalate, finding an original of this caliber may not be repeated for quite some time to come. 42 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Model - It would mark the end of an era as one of the last Speedster designs for an air-cooled 911, which had been the main-stay of the Porsche stable for decades. It would also hearken back to the glory days of the original Speedsters where function dictated form. In a day when assembly line production meant hand-crafted cars were frowned upon, the Speedster was different. A quick glance reveal the modified windscreen, three inches lower and more rakish than the cabriolet, these new cars had all the modern performance amenities, but likes its namesake had weight savings too. While it had roll-up window, they were for the front door only, with no quarter glass as on the cabriolet it was based on. The top was manually operated and face it, this car looks great being topless! Just 2,065 of these cars were produced with only 823 imported into the USA.

Italian Design with British Mechanics

Highly Desireable Chrome Bumper and Grill Mode

46 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Model – After the smash success of the original MG-B roadster, the company desired to have an enclosed coupe. Retaining the basic styling of the open car, the Italian design firm of Pininfarina developed a sporty little 2+2 design with hatchback convenience and improved passenger comfort. In the late 1960’s a 6-cylinder version termed the MG-C was released, but fitted with a 567 pound engine, its weight and reliability made it a market failure. In the early 1970’s, MG sourced the British Leyland aluminum V8 used in the Range Rover and success was found. Weighing just 320 pounds it was very similar to the MG-B’s 4-cylinder engine, but with lots more power. When new, few MGB GT-V8s made it to the USA, so most of the 2,591 units produced had UK deliveries. Rare when new, desirable today and rarely seen in the United States. The Car – Finished in a deep burgundy it is fitted with black vinyl bucket seats and equipped with a Britaz Sliding sunroof. Among some of its outstanding features is a wood-rimmed steering wheels, performance exhaust which provide a full V8size rumble, and substituting the original Dunlop provided wheels is a set of eight-spoke alloy sport wheels. Sold new in the UK, documents show it was imported to the USA back in 2002. Two binders full of receipts and documentation dating back to 1994 are included and it is reported to be in excellent mechanical condition. What makes this example very desirable are the chrome front and rear bumpers as well as the grille, all of which would eventually be changed over to the less attractive heavy-duty black plastic. All of the workmanship performed on this car makes it an investment grade automobile that you can enjoy and mix it up when you want.

The Model - After having seen the popularity of the smaller 190SL roadster selling in the American market, Mercedes realized that an affordable sports roadster was a market winner. Working together the engineering and design teams came up a winning design with the “113” family of cars. These little two seaters often referred to as the Pagoda roadsters, were a hit. First released was the 230SL, introduced in 1963 it was replaced in 1966 by the 250SL. Finally, the one everyone wants, the 280SL was in production from late 1967 until February 1971. Great looks, and properly powered, these were luxurious sports cars. Each engine was run in for two-hours before being placed in the car, while the fit and finish was beyond reproach, engineered like no other car. The 280 SL represented the end of an era and while the SL name lives on, these are the cars that stir tales of great road trips. The Car - The 280SL was the final incarnation of the Pagoda styling and examples such as this one are highly sought after. Given a full cosmetic restoration a couple of years ago, all mechanical components were brought back to their original factory specifications. Finished in Signal Red, the Biscuit leather interior and tan soft-top looks fresh and inviting. Wearing factory steel wheels adorned with original color-keyed full wheelcovers set this car off while the body is described as being just as it was designed, smooth, even and tight. Centered in front of the driver is the gauge package which is reported to be fully functional, and flanked by the tachometer and speedometer. One of the few upgrades is a modern stereo system sourced from a later model Mercedes and mounted in the dashboard. Considered one of the most sought after models in the SL family this could be you chance to own a piece of Mercedes history.

These special models were marketed as Shadows until 1970 when they were now christened “Corniche”. Taking its name from the Italian term for a Coastal road, these cars were for leisurely trips, where time could be taken to enjoy the surrounds. Using the finest skilled craftsmen at the Mulliner/Park-Ward shops, each car was custom ordered and attention the fit and finished was unmatched anywhere in the industry. Interiors were finished in the finest Connolly Leather with only the finest woods and veneers employed for the dashboard and trim.

He was spot-on and the 190SL was first shown within months of the 300SL’s arrival. Remaining in production basically unchanged from 1955 to 1963, and would satisfy the need for those looking for a sports car without a major investment with a total production of 25,881 units. Karl Wilfert drew on his 300SL design for the 190SL, basing it on the 190 series of sedans. One item borrowed from the bigger car was the engine design, effectively the same power plant as the 300, but using a four-cylinder version instead. Today the 190SL’s are highly sought after for their history and astonishingly good looks. The Car - Purchased new by our consignor’s father in November 1962, it was loved by the family. However, in the 1970’s it was traded to a neighbor for a Cadillac convertible. Our consignor loved the car to and promised his father one day he would buy the car back. In 1984 his dad passed away and during the trip home for the funeral he contacted the neighbor who agreed to sell him the 190SL. In going through his father’s belongings he found some original documentation and the original windshield with the 1962 safety inspection sticker. That is a story the new owner can get from our seller. Today the car has been restored to its original colors of light blue with red leather seats and a tan top. Reported to be in excellent mechanical condition this is a car with a rich history of which you can write the next chapter. 52 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Model - It took Alfa Romeo a little time to figure out its position in the post-war world of automobiles, but with the Giulietta line, they found their calling. While Berlina sedans would be the company’s bread and butter, the sports cars would generate much more excitement and bring the marque’s name back to the winners circle both on the track and on the showroom floor. Introduced in 1954 first came the smartly styled Sprint coupe which won rave reviews, while the Spider would come along in 1955. While the basic design would remain unchanged until 1965, there were constant improvements with 1959 seeing a mild refreshing of the front end design. One reason for the Giulietta’s success was the performance derived from the little in-line four with dual cams. With a little work, one could turn this peppy performer into a genuine race winner.

54 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car - This Giulietta Spider was recently treated to a ground-up restoration and the results are beautiful. Look over the coachwork and you will find the body panels line up properly and are gapped evenly, plus they look great finished in red with black bucket seats and matching convertible top. The steel wheels are adorned with original hubcaps and new Michelin tires, while the engine bay is clean and tidy. During the restoration the engine received a performance enhancing upgrade with the addition of a pair of Weber two-throat carburetors which boosted the output of this rugged motor to 90 HP, or about 16 more than stock form. Then there are the little details that make this car so special such as the period correct multiband radio and the vintage proper seatbelts. This little spider will be an enjoyable car and a great way to learn the pleasures of motoring in an Alfa Romeo.

Quite an accomplishment for an Italian tractor maker, but it became the icon for exotic styling predicting the angular style that became popular in the 1980’s. Add to that the powerful V12 engine, an understanding of how the driver and the car worked in unison and that too much was never enough, and the Countach became the car every car-aware kid had to have a poster of on their bedroom walls. At the same time as this super-car was being developed the U.S. government was instituting stricter emissions controls which meant that the 5000S sold in the USA had to be fuel-injected. However a few “gray” market carbureted versions were allowed circumstances. The Car - Finished in Red along with what appears to be original black leather seats, it came into the USA by Trans European Automobiles in October 1984. Still wearing original decals, ID tags and stickers it is one of the last 5000 S models produced. The throaty sound of those 6 Weber 2 barrel side draft carburetors exclusive for the S model, provide a symphony for gearheads and the pure exhilaration this car provides the driver makes it all worthwhile. Receipts and records show this car has been maintained by marque specialists, which insures no disappointments will be found. Fitted with the highly desirable rear wing and “five-hole” alloy wheels this is the type of car many dream of, but few will own. An important Countach that has been preserved for you to enjoy today.

Chassis Number: B3509 Engine: 1599 cc OHV 4-Cylinder 2 Barrel Carburetor / 95 bhp 4-Speed Manual Transmission Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes Mileage: 63,605 (Showing Not Documented) The Model - Founded in 1911, the Morgan’s first built motorized 3-wheelers that were considered motorcycles, and as technology moved forward, they could often be found with the heart of a small automobile. In 1936, the first Morgan 4-4 motorcar appeared representing a 4-cylinder engine and 4-wheels. The 4-4 became the 4/4 in the 1950’s, and went through several updates. In 1968 the Series 1600 was introduced, powered by Ford’s “Kent Crossflow” engine which could propel this little roadster down the road at lightning speeds. One of Morgan’s claims of fame today is that they are the longest surviving independent automobile company in the world. The 4/4 has always been built in limited numbers due to the amount of labor involved in the production of each car. Metal panels are hand formed and mounted to the heavy Ash wood ladder frame with the “Z-section” side members for the ultimate in support. The Car - Starting with a solid and complete roadster, this car has been treated to a top-shelf restoration. Each of the panels were inspected, stripped to bare metal and refinished in a deep blue of Royal quality. The interior is finished in soft and supple tan leather that invites you to enjoy the gauges and dash, both refinished to like-new. The engine was rebuilt and detailed, again to as-new status, as was the transmission, rear axle and all suspension components. A test drive in this roadster shows the quality of workmanship that was invested as it performs flawlessly while delivering sports car exhilaration. With the tan soft top up, the lines of the car seem to flow as those chrome wire wheels sparkle including the rear mounted spare. With current wait times from the Morgan factory of 6 to 9 months, here is your chance to take immediate delivery of a virtually new 40-plus year old classic Morgan. 58 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A .

The Model - Without a doubt the star of the 1984 Paris Auto Show was the all new Ferrari Testarossa which many felt was Enzo’s answer to the Lamborghini Countach. As with the majority of things Ferrari, its styling was based heavily on form following function such as the “cheese grater” side vents that channeled air to the dual radiators cooling the engine as well as the passenger cabin. In addition to outstanding looks, these cars could perform with heart-stopping speed, able to hit 180 mph easily and able to go from a standing start to 60 in under 5.8 seconds. With a wider body and two inch longer wheelbase, the driver and passenger had a bit more room plus a slight increase in space for luggage, as these cars made excellent touring coupes.

The Car - It is rather interesting that the Italian word for “black� is Nero, that same name as the emperor who played his fiddle while Rome burned. Makes since for this car looks hot, and that is in a good way. Bringing out that sleek silhouette this coupe exudes speed with just a dash of elegance. Personally owned by a Ferrari Master Mechanic who maintained this car in superb condition it was used very sparingly. One improvement was to the sound of the engine brought to its peak-performance through the addition of a Tubi System exhaust set-up. The black leather seats show minimal wear while the rest of the interior looks clean, fresh and all gauges are reported as fully functional. Testarossa was the start of a new era for Ferrari, this car could open a new era for your collection.

Land Cruiser was a hit, but there were customer demands for more choices so as to carry more people and cargo. One of the improvements was the introduction of the FJ-43, a bit longer it could accommodate six passengers and have room for luggage, or could tote a heavier load of cargo. In 1975 another legendary F2 engine was introduced. With a bit larger displacement and a few more horses, this powerplant’s real claim to fame was its low-end torque. With the FJ43 speed wasn’t as important as being able to climb up and out of a sticky situation. These Land Cruisers sold very well and were used in a myriad of tasks, they fit the bill Utility Vehicle just as intended when design. The Car - One of the fastest growing segments of the collector-vehicle hobby are original, well presented off-road vehicles and Toyota’s FJ series is leading the way. This rarely seen FJ43 has been given an extensive frame off restoration that would rival any concours prepared full classic automobile. Finished in its original color of Mustard Yellow, the seats have been done in black leatherette and the rear side mounted seats for up to six more passengers. All of the mechanical systems have been gone through and this car looks better than when it was new. Originally sold in Columbia, the speedometer and odometer are in kilometers and that gauge package also presents as new. About the only up-grade we found was a upgraded sound system. This is one FJ that we invite you to look outside, inside and underneath to see what perfection in restoration really is. 62 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Talbot after 1934 under the management of Anthony Lago put the T120 into production. A main-stay of the marque from 1935 to 1939 when WWII put an end to civilian car production, its styling featured sweeping and sporty lines. Talbot was heavily involved in motorsports, and Lago’s aim was to bring the race car performance to the customer as he was quoted as saying “Performance has true value only is you can bring out the elements of which will help the average driver.” With the T120, that goal was achieved. The Car - From the first year of production at the Suresnes factory, the outstanding workmanship is reflected in the deep dark blue finish that accents the sweeping lines of the fenders that flow into the body lines. With the engine running quiet and smooth the Pre-selector goes through the gears properly. A full array of Jaeger gauges fill the dashboard including tachometer and Speedometer flanking the smaller meters for fuel, temperature, electrical and oil pressure. With plush pleated dark red leather seats and side panels this car is majestic as it goes down the road, especially with the top in the down position, nearly invisible as it folds neatly behind the passenger compartment. Riding on chrome wire wheels, this “Sport Cabriolet” is ready to be pampered. These cars rarely come to auction, and this is a very unique chance to own one of the most legendary marques in automotive history, one that will be welcomed at the finest automotive gatherings in the world.

The Model - To the untrained observer, Morgan sports cars have looked pretty much the same for the past 60 plus years. Part of the reason for this continuity of design has to based on the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” theory. Looking closer at the history of Morgan, one can see how it evolved from its first 4-wheel car in the 1930’s, to the Plus 4 model as offered in this 1953 example. Hand formed body panels are mounted to a frame of the finest Ash, yes real wood, reinforced with Z-side strips. Lightweight engines provided a balance between power and handling that has made Morgan a success in motor vehicles for nearly a century. Simple, efficient and attractive, Morgan owners are a distinctive crowd who know their vehicles keenly, know the factory and chances are friends with some of the craftsmen who work in the shops of Malvern in Worcestershire. Once you own a Morgan, you’re part of the family.

The Car – Finished in pleasing tones of light Blue with dark blue fenders, with complimenting seats and Navy blue soft top, this car was originally produced for the home market and as such was a right-hand drive unit. The next year it was returned to the factory and converted to left-hand drive and later had a number of 1954 updates starting with the more powerful Triumph engine, Cam Gears steering system, as well as updated and raised headlights and a rounded stone guard radiator surround. Brought to the USA by Fergus Motors in New York City, it still carries the dealerships badge with ID numbers. One unusual feature are the dual-spare tires on the rear of the car, both secured by a Morgan lock assembly. Once you grasp onto the Brooklands steering wheel, you’ll never want to let go of this little Morgan Plus 4.

Chassis Number: F106AB23907 Decoded: F106AB=2.9L V8; 23907=Chassis Number Engine: 2926 cc SOHC V8 4 x Weber 40DCNF Twin Choke Carburetors / 237 bhp 5-Speed Manual Transmission Power Assisted Four Wheel Hydraulic Disc Brakes Mileage: 76,710 (Showing Not Documented) The Model - When the 308GTB coupe was released in 1975, it left a question unanswered, “where it the open-air model?” That was answered two years later in Frankfort, Germany when at the International Motor Show, Ferrari released the 308GTS. While “S” in the nomenclature often represents Spider or convertible, the new GTS was similar to the 246GTS that it replaced offering a Targa-top. The roof panel could easily be removed and stored on board. Its handling and performance matched those of the coupe and the sales were soon higher than the GTB. It also didn’t hurt that a fictional private detective in the tropical setting of Hawaii had access to his own 308GTS, and many like to think that Tom Sellick helped sell these cars. While Burt Reynolds influence on the Pontiac Trans Am was proven, we would like to think that the 308GTS sold itself based on its own good looks, superb handling and exceptional performance. The Car - This time proven Ferrari has lived for the past 30 years in Southern California and has been owned and maintained by a Ferrari Master Mechanic. It was imported to the USA as new and features the dry-sump engine and a wonderful quartet of Weber carburetors that seem to sing when revved up. When that throaty exhaust opens up, it sounds sweet and makes ones heart pound a little faster. This GTS has been driven and shows a patina of use, but no abuse. All of the gauges function as they should and according to our consignor it has provided reliable service. While the exterior shows a couple of minor blemishes there is no sign of major repair. Not a museum piece or trailer queen, this is a real, ready to go driving machine. 68 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Some of the improvements were actually there for the driver and passenger, others to satisfy changes in the law like new lighting visible from the sides of the car, head restraints, and exposed headlights. Others were genuine improvements like the new wraparound rear bumper with higher, more visible taillights, a larger air intake up front to help with engine cooling, and the availability of an automatic transmission and power steering. Some things remained the same, like the sweet in-line six, now pumping out 245 HP, and that unmistakable silhouette the E-types perfected. With the 2+2 that large rear hatch allowed a bit of ease in loading up some luggage, a picnic basket or may sporting equipment for a day on the links at the country club. The Car - What better color combination could you select for one of the most sensuous designs for an automobile than the Silver Gray exterior combined with the striking Red interior including leather bucket seats and appointments. This marvelous example is presented in excellent condition, sitting level with all body gaps and panels lined up to the same degree of perfection seen at Coventry. The chrome wire wheels sparkle in the sunlight as do the bumpers and trim bits. All around the tinted glass is clean and clear, devoid of nicks, cracks or wiper marks. A period correct Philips multi-band radio is mounted in the center above the console and all of the rocker switches appear to in working order. Reported to be in excellent mechanical condition, this is an outstanding example of a very civilized sports coupe, and with the automatic transmission, anyone can drive and enjoy this little E-type 2+2. 70 W W W.

The Model - When the 911 was introduced as a replacement for the popular but dated 356 models, it was immediately hailed as a major improvement for the sports car world. Porsche engineers went to work creating 911 based competition vehicles, as well as several model designations to better serve their customer base, not everyone was taking their 911 to Sebring or Nurburgring. By 1970 the 911 came in three street-legal flavors, the S, E and T series, offering different levels of performance and comfort. It would be the 911T that would bring Porsche its first two Monte Carlo Rally victories, and bring in plenty of sales. Its engine used the same technology as the racing versions with an overhead camshaft, automatic chain tensioners, and a crankshaft fitted with eight main bearings, it was a potent performer. Best of all it shared that Porsche design, and that is all that matters.


The Car - Shipped to the USA from Germany this 911T has matching numbers backed up with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Finished in its factory Light Ivory exterior finish complemented with the Black leatherette and Houndstooth fabric, it is just what a 1970 sports car should look like. Featuring all of the usual 911 amenities such as the new electrical and fresh-air systems to the proper hand throttle controls, this little coupe rides on 15” Fuchs wheels and is also fitted with an electric sunroof. It was given a recent mechanical and cosmetic refreshing and includes the original jack and spare tire. Described as a “peppy performer” it’s ready for an overnight trip or a distant touring journey. Extremely civilized, plenty of fun and not so complicated that a team of specialists will be need for a maximum of enjoyment. A great way to celebrate 50 years of the 911!

When Chevrolet unveiled the 1963 Stingray, it caught the industry a bit by surprise, for America’s sports car had all of a sudden grown up in a big way. With new ultra-sleek and streamline design from the front to the rear, this car not only a looker but a performer too. From the flip-up headlights, to horsepower in several different ranges, Corvette was no longer just for the sporty playboy type, but could often be found with a young lady behind the wheel. Bill Mitchell’s design team had really rang the bell with this design and ta the end of its first year, a sales increase of just under 50% had been seen, which simply meant, the Corvette was here to stay. The Car -Finding original cars that have been well cared for and preserved is the ultimate goal for many collectors and this Corvette fits that bill. Still wearing its original Saddle Tan metallic paint, this car shows only the slights of patina in wear that one might expect on a pampered 52 year or car. With the interior still sporting its original saddle vinyl covering there is some wear and tear found which shows this car has been driven and enjoyed with much care. There are very few age appropriate nicks and small scratches, but there is no sign of any re-paint nor replacement of any major mechanical parts save tires, belts and hoses, and the spot-on replacement of the black soft-top. Carrying documentation from its original purchase through to today, this Stingray is just waiting to be recognized for having survived over a half-century in its original form. 74 W W W.

Offered with a choice of engines, the coachwork was elegant and stately, just what you would expect from an honored British marque. The Mark V had a new independent front suspension system using double-wishbones and torsion bars. While the new XK120 might be more exhilarating to drive, the majority of Jaguar customers were buying the luxurious Saloon at the rate of 5 out of every 7 cars produced!. As stately as a Bentley or Rolls-Royce but at a fraction of the cost and much easier to maintain, the Mark V helped give Jaguar a stable financial footing and funded the racing endeavors of the Coventry based concern, which in the long run, was money very well spent. The Car - Finished in a pleasing two-tone green with darker top and lighter side panels, it provides old-world charm for the modern day. Wearing matching fender skirts “spats”, the color-keyed steel wheels ride on wide whitewall tires. It has an original sunroof that is fully functional and protects the interior which is quite elegant with its wood and leather appointments. It appears that a few years back a partial cosmetic restoration was performed as the paint appears to be quite presentable with smooth panels and excellent gaps, while the inside of the car has newer tan leather and wool carpets. All of the woodwork is present, though a bit of work will be needed to bring it up to “show” quality, still it is an impressive machine in which the mechanics are described as being in excellent working order. Elegance in motoring can be found in this Mark V Saloon. 76 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

None have been as successful as Factory Five headquartered in the Lone Star State of Texas. While much of their success came from manufacturing variations of the Cobra roadsters and Daytona coupes, Factory Five showed it could create a Supercar of its own design, one that could be built in any fairly well equipped garage. Sold as a kit car, the buyer received everything he needed from the company except the drivetrain. The package was designed for a GM sources engine, suspension, brakes and fuel system, while the Porsche 911 transaxle would transfer power from the motor to the wheels. Bodies were 3/16” laminate of Vinylester resin and black gel coat, furnished trimmed, hinged and ready for paint. Chassis, suspension and even exhaust parts were also included. The Car - This example of the GTM was built using the most potent small-block engine Chevrolet ever put under the hood of a car, the mighty LS7. Developed by to be a street legal racing engine, lessons learned during the first 7.0 liter C5R racing program were utilized creating a 100% emissions compliant and 100% performance orientated motor. Painted bright yellow the body features electrically operated hood and doors, see-through engine cover, custom Boyd 18” wheels fitted with BF Goodrich G-Force T/A tires. The interior is well appointed with black leather seats and Sparco 4-point racing harnesses. For comfort it has Vintage A/C and Heat, plus a top-line AM-FM-CD Stereo system. For handling and safety, full Corvette components have been used with the brakes using 4-piston calipers with cross-drilled rotors.

1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Coupe Designer: Ferry Porsche Estimate: $190,000 - $235,000

The Model - Racing is what drove Porsche and during the 1960’s their achievements with turbocharging pioneered new ideas in getting the most performance from the flat-6. By the early 1970’s turbo charging had worked its way from the race track to the street and a turbo equipped 911 was prepared for sale as a street car. Designated the 930, it was aimed to compete directly with Italian models from Lamborghini and Ferrari, and did the job at a lower price. First released in the USA in 1976, the 930 attained maximum power with the addition of an intercooler, which required special modifications on the rear tail of the car. It took some skilled driving to learn to tame the 930 Turbo, but once you got used to the operation of the car, others only got to see that air-sweeping tail as the Porsche moved far ahead of the pack.

Adding to its rarity is the factory sun-roof and ice-cold air conditioning, an unusual combination.

All of the glass is factory original and has no cracks or other marks, and the original black-out Fuchs wheels set off the entire picture of speed and beauty.

In its third year, Ford offered its first factory multi-carb engines with the “Thunderbird Super” 312 V8 pumping out 270 horses, with only the F-code Supercharged edition being more powerful. From the day they were released, the 1957 models became instant classics with their accented full-length quarter panel fins, Frenched-style headlight treatment and the sporty performance everyone loved and anyone could enjoy. It was also the end of an era. The Car - Finished in its factory color of Thunderbird Bronze, it was restored several years ago and has been lightly used. Under the hood rests the factory dual-carb set-up, complemented with the engine dress-up kit, plus power-steering, but manual brakes. It also features both the soft folding top plus the optional “Porthole” lift-off hardtop, and Magic-Aire heater-defroster system. During its restoration a number of upgrades were added including the stylish after-market chrome wire wheels, a modern R134A air-conditioning system as well as a solid-state in-dash audio system. The interior is finished in a matching copper vinyl material accompanied by properly embossed “T-Bird” door panels. All of the original style decals and simulated markings under the hood really set this car off.

The Model - When Ferrari introduced the 365GTB, the first Ferrari honored with the name of an American racing venue, Daytona established a new level of what a sports car should be. Initially offered only in coupe form, they were among the fastest production cars available. Those destined for European delivery were a bit different that the USA imports, in addition to KM speed-odometers, there were several small trim changes, but one of the best looking and most efficient items were the Perspex cover headlights that added to the slip-stream effect of this beautifully design body. Starting in 1971, Scaglietti began to produce a limited number of Spyder versions which involved more than just lopping off the top and putting a convertible set-up in the rear boot. Combining the looks and performance of the most revered machine of the day, the Ferrari Daytona lived up to its name on the track and on the street.


The Car - The appearance and conversion craftsmanship of this car today is one that can impress even the most ardent enthusiast. Factory records show “13533” was delivered new in Europe as a Berlinetta finished in Red with a tan interior. Its next appearance was in April 1978 when offered for sale in San Francisco, already converted to an open car. Going through several hands, it had a color change to black with the tan trim and was seen at several events, often perceived as being a real Spyder. Acquired in the late 1980’s by a private Japanese collector, before being put on display in his museum, a professional color change to Fly Yellow and a fresh interior was installed with tan and black leather seats and tan side panels. Brought back the USA within the past year, it still retains a freshness of restoration and the rare Perspex headlight covers. 85 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Chassis Number: 157344685 Engine: 1300 cc Flat 4 Cylinder Engine Single Carburetor / 53 bhp 4-Speed Manual Transmission Four Wheel Drum Brakes The Model - Whether you call it the Volkswagen Type 1, the Beetle or simply the Bug, the peoples car has been in some level of production since 1938 and with 21 million units produced the most prolific car on the road. While the concept was Hitlers the design belonged to Ferdinand Porsche. The rear engine rear drive layout was new to the motoring public and was a trend that would soon catch on. 1967 would see the beetle change into a more modern automobile while still maintaining its identity as the Beetle. The 1967 model year would include a more powerful and larger displacement engine. The electrical system would be updated to a more practical 12 volt system that would power the new sealed beam headlamps. If the the coupe was too confining for your tastes you could get the practical little car with the spice of a cabriolet. Renowned coachbuilder Karmann saw a market and successfully produced the open air model for the more adventurous consumer. The Car - An exacting body off restoration has left this cabriolet in phenomenal condition. The ruby red paint shows full luster, shines in any light, and is accented nicely with the new white top. The exterior is finished with correct wheels and a period correct set of firestone tires. The new tan interior was put in place at the time of restoration and remains undamaged and full of life today. Included with this little gem is its unique bike rack and vintage, matching red, bike. The little beetle has undergone a complete mechanical rebuild making this a perfect, reliable choice for adding a little spice to running the usual mundane errands around town. 86 W W W.

For the 1975 edition, the anticipation was high as the replacement for the 246 “Dino” had been hinted at. When the car was unveiled, it was hailed as another styling success from Maranello. Its low profile, predictable handling and very comfortable seating made it an all-around successful sports car. The engine was fitted with a quartet of Weber carbs that made the little V8 sign and its performance was impressive, 0-60 MPH in under 6.5 seconds and a top speed of just under 160 MPH. The early 308’s would mark the last of the carbureted models, now highly desirable. The Car - When the 308 was put on the market, it was hailed as being a performance vehicle, and rather than being placed on a pedestal to be looked at and admired, some people bought these cars to use for the purpose they were built for, driving down the road. This car has been owned, driven and maintained by a Ferrari Master Mechanic, and though it might not be concours perfect, it does have been meticulously maintained and is always kept in turn-key ready to go condition. Finished its original color of Red, the seats featured their tan leather surfaces with black accent stripes. The upgraded Cromodora alloy wheels are wearing fairly fresh rubber while the major systems such as cooling, fuel and brakes, have all been kept in proper and safe order. Here is a Ferrari you can sit in the driver’s seat and admire for its beauty and performance while is sure to appreciate in value. 88 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Last of the True Big Healey Roadsters

Restored and Sorted Out, Ready for the Road

Iconic Design for Many is Healey’s Best

The Model - Donald Healey’s love affair with roadsters hit its peak with the introduction of the BN7 and BT7 members of the 3000 family. The BN7 was pure sports car for two passengers at most, while the BT7 had a 2+2 set-up that allowed for driver and three passengers although it helped if those selected for the back seat were on the petite side. Under the hood, the in-line six had never seen more power derived in large part from a trio of SU carbs which pushed out the highest HP offered from Austin-Healey to date. Proven in competition, these cars could handle the toughest road courses and on the street, they were agile and provided plenty of excitement for those behind the steering wheel. The BT7 cars would mark the end of the roadster era, as future editions with be officially convertibles with the luxury of a roll-up window. The Car - Finished in Healey Blue it is fitted with Navy Blue leather bucket seats with white piping, a dark blue tonneau cover plus black vinyl folding soft top complete with side curtains for inclement weather. Riding on a set of chrome wire wheels and blackwall radial tires, it is said to have better handling and a smoother ride than when new. This car has been given a complete restoration, albeit a couple of years ago during which time all of the mechanical and electrical systems have been completely gone through and sorted out, It has been carefully used for several tours and shows quite well. While exhibiting a car can be enjoyable the real thrill here is the drive, feeling the road below you and becoming one with the machine. Few other rides equal the exhilaration of piloting a big Healey roadster down the road. 90 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Model - From its inception, the Porsche 911 was a timeless machine and despite under-going a large number of changes remains today as a tribute to perfection in performance and design. In 1990, the 964 series of the 911 was brought to market with the reintroduction of the Turbo. Starting in 1992, the larger 3.6L Turbocharged edition went on sale and Porsche owners now had a formidable machine. The all alloy engine featured double-chain drive SOHC, eight main bearings on the crank, 11.3:1 compression ratio, and in addition to the turbo was equipped with electronic fuel injection. If making the car go faster wasn’t enough, it was also easier and more predictable to drive at high speeds than ever before. Porsche claimed that a top speed of 174 MPH could be achieved. It was simply the greatest Porsche produced to date and remains an icon of 1990’s performance. The Car - This stunning example has been treated like a baby during its less than 27,000 mile life. Less than 200 miles ago it was given a complete engine servicing by a marque specialist and is reported to be in top shape both mechanically and cosmetically. It was given a sympathetic restoration a couple of years ago where it received a high level respray in its original black, and the car itself looks showroom fresh inside and out. It is well appointed with all the basic amenities including icecold air-conditioning. Everything Is right about this car, that is according to Auto-Chek which shows no incidents in its history. From the immediately recognizable “whale tail” rear wing to those distinctive alloy wheels which show off the red brake calipers, this is one machine that is ready to provide unlimited exhilaration with dependable performance. There is little more to do with this car than to bid on it, own it and drive it like it was meant to be driven. 92 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

In 4x4 form, it proved it could go almost anywhere, and while the 4X4 versions were popular, a less expensive DJ3A model was developed with only rear-wheel drive capabilities. Again the government saw the advantage to this model and ordered 1,000’s of the DJ3A as a postal delivery vehicle. When that initial contract ran out in 1959, Willys decided to use up leftover parts for a limited edition Gala Surrey. However, the demand for these from resort businesses, hotels and rental car agencies meant this attractive little roadster would stay around until 1964. Available in just a few color selections such as pink or turquoise with white trim, they became a familiar sight at venues such as Caribbean islands and locales like Hawaii. The Car - One look at this Gala Surrey and only the coldest of hearts wouldn’t melt. This Gala was given a complete and beautiful restoration about five years ago. With an eye for authenticity, the proper Turquoise finish with correctly applied white trim was achieved. Only one source for the original style soft-trim materials still exists and again a perfect match with the original hues was found, complete down to the fringe for the top. Mechanically the little Hurricane-4 engine was rebuilt as were all chassis components including the brake system. During its hey-day, Surreys found their way into several motion pictures including Jerry Lewis’s hilarious comedy The Nutty Professor. Even Elvis Presley had one. You don’t have to be a movie star to own this Gala, you just need to have a little “look at me” in you when you drive it home. 94 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Model -Saving the best for last in the styling vein of the Mercedes “Pagoda” style, the 1969 model year was approaching the end of a very successful run. With proven looks and now a larger engine, the 280SL was the perfect marriage of power, styling and engineering perfection. While in America, “Muscle” was king in the late 1960’s, early 1970’s, there was a growing breed of automotive enthusiasts who prefer the simple pleasure of a sports car. Seats were padded just enough and placed for proper driver positioning, which meant that a quick trip around the country would not tucker one out. The Car -Attractive looks, and properly powered, this luxurious sports car is fitted with a desirable 4 speed manual transmission.

Well maintained and enjoyed it shows light age and appropriate patina, ensuring that this is good honest collector car ready to be enjoyed without guilt.

ot 14 1 L 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster Roadster Coachwork: Dr. Ferdinand Porsche Estimate: $270,000 - $290,000

Well Documented Veteran of Several Important Races

Authenticated Early Pre-A Speedster Body

First Time Offered For Over 40 Years

Chassis Number: 81114 Engine: 1582 cc Opposed 4-cylinder 2 x Weber 40mm Carburetors / 75 bhp (est.) 4-Speed Manual Transmission Four Wheel Drum Brakes

The Model - In the early days of Porsche, new developments were often instituted on a rolling basis, such was the case when the 356A was introduced. Approximately 200 Pre-A roadster bodies had been prepared when the new larger engine was readied for installation, so these Pre-A bodies received the new motor and were sold as 356A Speedsters. These cars were coveted by amateur and professional racers alike and were a common participant in road racing and rally events across the United States, the market that the Speedster had been created specifically for. Stripped on all non-essential occupant comforts, these cars were made to run and run they did. Maintaining a car’s authenticity was of little importance when these cars were new, owner modifications were common, and if the original engine blew up, another would be bolted into place. It was a thrilling and exciting chapter in the world of Porsche and America based racing.


The Car - Our consignor reports that “81114” was sold new in Monterey, California. In 1973, it was spotted at a gas station by Porsche enthusiast Bob Monnastes, who purchased the car from then owner Richard Lyons. Having been set up for racing, Monnastes installed an engine block from a circa 1964 356C. This block was polished and ported, fitted with a set of 912 pistons, a shaved flywheel and balanced crankshaft. Acquired by our consignor in 1975, he took it to the races where it became a veteran of both La Carrera II and II, plus the fist Silver State Rally in northern Nevada. Campaigned in the 1970’s and ‘80’s, this Speedster looks much today like it did when racing. Its history and background are supported through photos, receipts and other documents. Needing only a current safety inspections and a little TLC, 81114 could be your ticket into the wonderful world of vintage racing.

The Model - Moretti helped fill the need of economical transportation in post-war Italy with the majority of its vehicles being produced under license from Fiat. The original purpose of the Multipla was to fill a need for a vehicle that could transport small families and run basic errands. While many of these vehicles found duty as taxicabs, it really was a multi-purpose mini-car. The original design was a natural for conversion to resort duty in the same way the little Jolly roadsters were employed. With open-air motoring, a surrey style roof and stylish wicker seats, they were a smart little car that offered enough performance to get from the villa to a favorite café, or to cruise along the coast of the French Riviera or a small Greek island get-away.

The Car - From our research it appears this beach cruiser served many tourists in the resort areas of Greece. When first found, time and the elements had taken its toll on this unique vehicle, which was rescued and returned to Italy. There it was treated to an extensive restoration which included replacement of all panels that had been adversely affected by salt-air corrosion. Fitted with new wicker seats and those sharp Borani wire wheels makes this Multipla the type of car you just want to vacation in. However it would also serve faithfully on a large estate, ranch or lakeside home. Of course with its good looks and expert restoration, it may just have to pull duty winning awards at concours type events too!

Custom Coach Styling by Pininfarina

Historically Important Model

Well Preserved and Unrestored

The Model - By the mid 1950’s, it was apparent that Lancia needed a replacement for the legendary Aurelia family of cars, thus was born Flaminia. Keeping the Lancia tradition of naming their models after ancient Roman roads, Flaminia honored the path between Rome and Ariminum. Offered in three models, a Berlinetta (sedan), a cabriolet and a coupe, they were the first cars with the Lancia badge to have unibody (monocoque) construction, 5-speed transmission, a complete electrical system and independent front suspension. However, the most important advancement was the overhead valve V6 engine that would establish another legend. While the sedans were built in house, cabriolet and coupe bodies were sought from established coach builders such as Pininfarina. Attractive and stylish, sales seemed only limited to the number they could produce. During its run from 1957 to 1970, the Flaminia 5,236 coupes produced, and they are among the most sought after models from this marque.

102 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car –While Flaminia coupes were produced by several coachbuilders, the most prolific and in many observer’s opinion, most attractive, are those from the shops of Pininfarina. It is finished in a Pewter Gray-Silver that set off the lines and details of this car which is fitted with black vinyl bucket seats accompanied by black carpet trimmed in light gray. Riding on its original steel wheels with factory hubcaps and trim rings, they are equipped with period correct Michelin blackwall tires. Up front is a pair of hard to find Carello headlamps. This car was given a sympathetic restoration addressing only those issues needed to put the car in fine working order. Under the hood appears to be unmolested from the day it left the factory and while the entire car has a light patina of age, there are no secrets in this Lancia’s closet. It is a pure joy to drive.

Popular Model That is Rarely Seen At Auction

Full Restoration, Excellent Mechanics

The Model - Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 1962, the 2600 series was the replacement for the popular 2000 series and would go on to create a successful chapter in the Alfa Romeo history books. Offered in three factory body styles, Berlinetta, Spider and Sprint, the sleek coupe with coachwork provided by Bertone, would be quite popular seeing a total of 6,999 produced during its run from 1962 to 1968. A number of the Sprints were actually ordered by the Italian government and used for special police-car duties. Under the hood the all-aluminum engine proved to be extremely reliable, but would mark the end of an era for Alfa when it became its last production dual-overhead cam six. With that five-speed transmission the 2600 Sprint was capable of speeds up to 200 kmh, or nearly 125 mph.

All of the instrumentation is reported to be in working, while the trio of Solex carburetors respond in unison when the need for speed is required. One of the most important designs in Italian coachwork, it was Giugiardo’s first major assignment as the head of design for Bertone and the restoration work on this coupe shows his master’s touch in design. Body panels are smooth and well aligned, doors fit tightly as well as the hood and decklid. Paint, brightwork and soft trim come together to show the high degree of expert craftsmanship employed to bring this car to the show-worthy standards it is in today.

The Model - Chevrolet comprehensively redesigned and reengineered the Corvette with the introduction of the all-new Sting Ray model of 1963. There was little doubt that the new Corvette would be a successful race car; the engines were larger, and the brakes were better than all preceding Corvettes, and for the first time the car was offered with an independent rear suspension. All previous inline six cylinder engines, and 283 V-8s, were replaced with a comprehensive line of 327 cubic inch Small-Blocks ranging from 250 horsepower to 365 hp in the top of the line Fuel Injection model. Corvettes faced considerable competition from Shelby’s Cobras, Jaguar’s E-Type and Ford’s new Mustang, yet the Corvette flew Chevrolet’s flag high and with honor, winning countless races, and series championships around the country. This particular era Corvette has since been nicknamed the “Mid Years”, and was produced from 1963 through 1967. 112 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car - This original 365 horse “Fuelie” Vette was bought new in Richardson, Texas by the original owner, Bill Jobe, and immediately began a life in autocross racing in which it competed for approximately four years. Then Bill Jobe built the car into a stout SCCA B-Production spec car, and raced with considerable success from 1969-1972, competing in 26 races, earning a record of 18 first, 5 second and 3 third place finishes with no DNFs - an enviable record for any big time race car. It was later bumped up to the GT1 category before retiring from front line SCCA competition. The original TRACO Chevy has been freshly rebuilt, with a clean-up bore modestly increasing its displacement, with a current estimated output of 375-400 horsepower. The rest of the car has also been mechanically freshened and is vintage race ready, running complete instrumentation and a late 60s period style roll bar. The car’s eye-popping “Wild Willie” paint job, and its considerable on- track speed 113 long ago earned it the nickname “Supernova” Corvette.

The Model -One of the most important cars ever produced by Mercedes-Benz was the 300SL Gullwing Coupe built between 1954 and 1957. As awesome as they were in design, in reality there were lacking in a number of creature comforts. When the SLS-AMG Gullwing hit the market, neither the driver nor the passenger had any unfulfilled wants or needs. It was simply the best grand touring sports coupe ever produced. SLS represents Sport Light Super, which translates into the best of modern technology and old-world craftsmanship. No long lines of robots mindlessly putting cars together, these are a hands-on machines, one where the final product receives several signatures from the skilled artisans who put them together. 114 W W W.

The Car - This example was delivered new in Texas and has been pampered. Finished in the exciting color combination of Iridium Silver Metallic with Classic Red leather interior, this is the ultimate in what a car should be. All of the modern amenities are here, premium sound system, environmental controls, navigation and full instrumentation. The engine on this car whispers to the point you have to rev it up to be sure it is still running. This example has been driven gingerly, but awaits for your turn at the controls. The stock wheels and tires show minimal wear and all servicing has been done. The last new SLS left the Stuttgart line in 2014, and like the original Gullwings, this one is already a classic.

The Model -At the October 1965 Salone di Torino, Vignale displayed a custom built 2+2 coupe created for Adolfo Lopez Mateos, at the time the President of Mexico. The reception for this car, based on the 5000GT chassis, was very positive and in within months a new production model was unveiled, the Mexico. Most of these cars came with the 260 HP 4.2 Liter V8, a four-cam powerplant that was topped off by a quartet of Weber carburetor working in unison through mechanical linkage. The ideal transmission for this car was the 5-speed manual supplied by ZF, and improved ventilated disc brakes on all wheels were used for the first time on the Maseerati Mexico. Described by some as “Crisp and Elegant, like a finely tailor suit”, the body design was a “wonderful expression of chic”. Recognized from the moment it was first shown this is the ultimate 1960’s 2+2 coupe.

The Car -It had to be love at first sight the first owner spotted this car at the Chicago Auto Show. Purchased right from the Maserati display, he gave it to his son as his college car. It was always maintained by a specialty repair shop in Barrington, Illinois. After several long waits for repair parts the son and his father offered to sell the car to the shop owner, which was immediately snapped up. Used sparingly the mechanic and his son maintained the car, but never restored it. A couple of years ago the son wanted to freshen the car up so as to give his ailing father a last ride. Sadly, his dad passed away before that could happen. The freshening, including a quality re-spray in red accented by the light tan leather seats, was completed, all mechanical operations were restored as needed and today it is turn-key ready to ride.

Factory R-code 428 Cobra Jet Engine

Well Presented and Preserved Genuine Shelby

Comes with Deluxe Marti Report

The Model - By the time the 1969 Shelby Mustangs were given their final approvals in early 1968, Shelby had pretty much retired and was off to Africa and other exotic lands. But he still had a bit of his hand in the mix and performance was still king. For 1969, all Shelby production was shifted to the famous Rouge plant in Dearborn, with special teams selected to build out these cars. The drive trains were pure Ford with not special tweaking of the engine. Of course none was really needed as the Cobra Jet’s advertising 360 HP has long been speculated to be a very conservative mark achieved by a slightly detuned engine. Fortunately, the production records for the Shelbys from this era survive and each car’s heritage can be traced back to the factory.

118 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car - This Shelby appears to be a fairly original car. Starting with its beautiful Royal Maroon finish, the paint does show a couple of minor flaws and was reported touched up. Looking inside the car, the interior appears 100% original, proper gauges, black Clarion Vinyl upholstery, factory air-conditioning and even a factory AM-FM push-button radio. Under the hood is also in rather pristine condition with all the right marking and materials. That mighty Cobra Jet is backed up by the rock-solid C6 automatic and 3.70:1 gears in that 9� rear axle housing. All the other necessities are there, the 8K tachometer, the special alloy wheels, rear louvers and the space saver spare tire and jack. We lost Carroll Shelby several years ago, but his legacy will live forever through the cars bearing his name.

The Model - In 1967, shortly after Chevrolet released their new sport-compact, Camaro, they secured the hottest advertising spot in the automotive world when this new car was selected as the Official Indianapolis 500 Pace Car. Two years later, Chevrolet repeated the honor with the 1969 Camaro RS/SS “Z11” option. In addition to the two specially prepared cars that were actually used to pace the race, 87 other “official” vehicles were also supplied to the track of which 43 were nearly identical equipped with the 300 HP, 350 cid V8 and automatic transmissions. These were used in the Festival, as well as by track owners and management, USAC officials, and loaned out to a few lucky members of the press. Finished in Dover White with Hugger Orange Racing Stripes and outfitted in a unique Orange Houndstooth fabric for the seats, they had an immediate visual impact that one could not forget.

The Car - When this car was ordered at the Norwood plant, it was given extra attention as to fit, finish and its mechanical condition. Upon arriving at the “Brickyard�, it was adorned with a much coveted Garage Space Parking Pass, designated No. 422. The Z11 package was officially a paint and trim package, but ordering the extras was encouraged and this car is very well appointed. Fitted with automatic transmission it has the Horseshoe shifter with center console, and has the tri-spoke wood-grain steering wheel, basic heater-defroster and AM radio among other features. What makes this Pace Car edition so unique is that since new, it has travelled just over the 9,300 mile mark and those have been very well documented miles.

Professional Level Restoration

The Model -For 1970, the Chevelle received all new sheet metal as the SS option was now a package limited to just three models, the Malibu Sport Coupe, Convertible and El Camino pickup. Also new for 1970, the largest displacement motor ever placed in a Chevrolet, the mighty 454! With order code Z15, you got an engine that had plenty of torque, 500 ft-lbs at 3200 RPM, as well as all the other SS items like the special coded U14 instrument cluster, as well as dual exhaust, the special domed hood, black accented grille, disc brakes, bright engine accents, those special Sport wheels and quite a bit more. The base cost of the Z15 SS 454 package was $725.25, which included the price for the M22 “Rock Crusher” 4-speed transmission. It was money well spent if you were into pure performance and these cars looked great, ran with the best, and today represents the “must have” edition of bow-tie supremacy. The Car - This beautiful example of a Chevelle SS hardtop is pretty much what most people would want to have had. Under the hood is that mighty LS5 “454” V8 fitted with all the right amenities, power brakes, power steering, air condition and a beautifully detailed engine with proper chrome valve covers and air cleaner housing. Though born in Cortez Silver, today the car looks splendid in Cranberry Red with those sinister looking black stripes and black vinyl top. The interior is appointed with a number of item optional even on the SS, like the Strato bucket seats, push-button AM-FM radio, and the proper U14 instrument cluster fitted with the proper 5500 RPM red-line tach. Treated to a full restoration the exterior of the car shows outstanding alignment of the panels with excellent paint and deep reflective chrome bumpers. This is truly an outstanding example of Chevrolet muscle at its best. 122 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Seven Seasons As A Front Line USAC Competitor

Multiple Indy 500 Appearances

Driven By Graham McRae At The 1973 Indy 500

Estimate: $375,000 - $435,000 Chassis Number: 72019 Engine: 2619 cc DOHC in-line 4-Cylinder Turbocharged Drake Offenhauser / 750 bhp Four speed transmission Four Wheel Disc Brakes The Model - During the early 1970s, Dan Gurney’s All American Racers, McLaren and Vel’s Parnelli Jones racing teams battled for supremacy as car builders in the USAC champ car series. Over time, each “dog had its day” with all three of these chassis constructors winning their share of races and championships. Dan Gurney hired brilliant aerodynamicist Roman Slobodynskij to design AAR’s new-for-’72 machine, as aerodynamic advancements were of equal or greater importance to that of a more powerful engine. His new Eagle 7200 was as long and wide as the rules allowed, powered by a turbocharged version of the still viable Drake-Offy I-4. The 7200 was so good from the beginning that it began winning poles, races, and taking track records immediately, and 29 of them were ultimately built. Pat Patrick entered a trio of AAR 7200s for the 1973 Indy 500 for Gordon Johncock (#20), Swede Savage (#40) and Graham McRae (#60); with Johncock winning the troubled, rain shortened race and McRae finishing 16th winning Rookie of the Year. The Car - This is the very car, liveried as race number 60, then and now, that McRae drove at Indy in 1973, with its identical #20 team car winning the race. #60, later driven by Wally Dallenbach, won the Milwaukie Mile 200, and the California 500 that year. Throughout the next several seasons it was raced by Steve Krisiloff, Bill Simpson, George Follmer, Bill Scott, John Martin and Roger Mears, before retiring to life as a vintage racer, then ultimately retired and parked. A recent owner engaged expert Walter Goodwin, of Indianapolis, to refresh and restore the car to its 1973 Indy 500 STP team livery and specification; the three year restoration took place between 2008 and 2011. It has since appeared in various museum exhibits, and participated in vintage Indy 500 demonstrations and tests. An important, authentic, and dazzling looking example of a successful machine from one of Indy racing’s most competitive decades. 124 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Rare Period Sparco Turbo 300 est hp

Professional Grade Restoration

Classic Colors with Wide Whites

The Model - There is little doubt that the 1955 Chevrolet is one of the sharpest looking cars ever to come out of Detroit. With styling that many compared to contemporary Ferrari designs of the day, combined with the introduction of the legendary small-block overhead-valve V8 engine and improvements to the suspension and ride, it is easy to see why these cars were America’s best seller that year. Add to that the two-tone color treatment of the Belair, and the package was complete. From the start Chevrolet’s V8 has been a favorite with those looking to squeeze out a bit more performance than the original design allowed. Developed and marketed in the early 1960s, the Sparco Supercharger is just one horsepower booster that was fairly successful, so much so that for a time, none other than Carroll Shelby took an interest in this company’s products. W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car - Treated to a full, complete restoration, this India Ivory and Gypsy Red convertible really drives home the reason America fell in love with the Belair for 1955. Expert craftsman worked this body over and made sure the panels were a smooth as silk and that the body components were proper installed with even gaps all around. Interior appointments harken back to those halcyon days of the 1950’s with authentic materials used for the seats with the only visible upgrade being a modern radio and tape play installed. Under the hood is clean but the observer is sure to notice the Sparco Supercharger. This vintage piece of speed equipment is from the early 1960’s and has been professionally installed and tuned for maximum output. Speed and beauty are both rolled into this one package. 127 W W W.

Sold on Bill of Sale

Engine: 358 ci GM Corporate racing OHV V-8 Cylinder Four Barrel Carburetor / 620 hp 4-speed manual transmission / rear-wheel drive Tube Frame Chassis / Full Roll Cage Four Wheel Disc Brakes The Model - The interest in vintage motorsport has now grown beyond its beginnings in sports car racing to encompass Indy cars, midgets and sprint cars, historic drag racing and of course legitimate NASCAR machines. The cars that have gained the most traction in vintage stock car racing are those of the 70s and early 1980s, most particularly those that have actually run in the Winston Cup series. Another reason these eras have become so popular is that most of America’s great brands were still competing: Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, Mercury, and Pontiac regularly populated most NASCAR fields, and all of the time’s greatest drivers were out there, every weekend, mixing it up for Winston Cup wins. Aerodynamics was an ever more important factor in terms of speed and handling; it was during this era that Chevrolet developed the Monte Carlo SS bodywork for NASCAR competition, and Pontiac also homologated its somewhat controversial “fastback” 2+2 rear window, again for greater top speed and more aerodynamic stability on the high banks. The Car - NASCAR’s unchallenged win leader is of course “The King” Richard Petty, with an unequalled 200 Cup victories. And this Banjo Matthews built and bodied Pontiac 2+2 was one of Petty’s 1986 team cars, for sure a member of the Petty stable, and as such competed in approximately six NASCAR Winston Cup races. Petty’s Garage advises that “it is likely the car The King drove in his 1001st NASCAR start” in 1986 although cannot confirm that with paperwork, since cars were so often raced, wrecked, and rebuilt with whatever components the team had on hand in the shop. But this is unquestionably a Richard Petty-raced machine, all the provenance any car needs. This iconic Petty Blue Poncho is cosmetically outstanding and mechanically fresh, an historic and fun to drive vehicle in which to begin your vintage NASCAR stocker racing career. 128

The Model - 1953 marked the 50th Anniversary of General Motors and to celebrate each automotive Division, save Pontiac, was given the chance to produce a limited edition of custom-bodies convertibles. Chevrolet produced the compact Corvette, Oldsmobile fielded the lovely Fiesta, Cadillac the smart Eldorado and Buick, the sporty and elegant Skylark. Each of the full-size convertibles received had a considerable amount of hand-built craftsmanship applied to the bodywork. While the Fiesta was a one-year only model, the Eldorado returned as basically a trimmed-out Series 62 convertible with major body alterations. Buick’s Skylark also returned, but it wasn’t just a re-trimmed Roadmaster, it was marketed as a series unto itself and to many, even more impressive than the original edition. Most notable is the “bobbed” rear quarter treatment featuring shaved down rear panels adorned with huge taillight housings, and all four wheel-wells enlarged and painted in contrasting colors. These were truly impressive cars. 130 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car – For 1954, Skylark saw just 836 examples produced, and we dare to say that this Matador Red convertible is one of the finest in existence. Treated to a full restoration and kept in a private collection for the past decade, it is turn-key ready. Fitted with all the proper factory accessories including push-button AM radio, heater-defroster, clock, plus power goodies such as steering and brakes, plus power windows, seats and the top, you couldn’t ask for more. Kelsey-Hayes produced the special Skylark wheels, of which this car retains a set with deep and reflective chrome finish plus the special tri-color center cap. All of the unique trim parts from the special taillights to the Skylark badges are exquisite as this is a show car waiting to win awards and bring you smiles. Considered by many to be even more attractive and special than the original, you really did get more from Skylark in ’54. 131 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Model - When Lee Iacocca first approached Carroll Shelby about creating a special performance version of Ford’s new sport compact, the Mustang, the main concerns were on getting the best handling possible out of the car, as well as highest output for the engines. Cosmetic changes were mainly functional. While the 1967 and 1968 Shelby Mustangs still retained most of their Ford heritage, for 1969, that would change. These would be the last of the Mustang based Shelby cars for many years to come, and they featured exclusive front sheet metal as well as a tuned suspension and high performance. Elongated fenders and a hood that formed a wide-oval intake gave these cars an aggressive face that fit right in with the muscle-car wars of the day. In total, 1,085 fastback coupes were released for the 1969 model year in the GT350 series. The Car -On July 31, 1969, Beth Caver made the drive from Odessa to Dallas, Texas where she took delivery of this Gulfstream Aqua Shelby GT350. It is fitted with white vinyl high-back bucket seats and all the amenities of the day such as basic AM radio, air-conditioning, special alloy mag-type wheels, and the space-saver spare tire. Ms. Caver kept her car until November 1977 when another Odessa girl, Kathleen Thompson Chatham purchased the car and held on to it for many more years. This basically all original vehicles has had one repaint in its original color and retains all the components that made it a Shelby. These include the special grill, unique badging and a stance that really means business. With an arrow straight body and panel fits that look like it came of the assembly line yesterday, this is a car that belongs in a collection of the finest performance vehicles ever produced. 132 W W W.

When Mustang was first introduced only two body styles could be ordered, the smart little coupe and popular convertible. In the Fall of 1964, they were joined by the fastback 2+2, the same car that Carroll Shelby decided to base his GT350’s on. These cars were pure in their design and Ford could not make enough of them to meet demand. At the Rouge factory in Dearborn, three shifts were operating around the clock while two other plants scurried to switch over to Mustang production. Mustang has been a winner from day one. The Car - Finished in beautiful Raven Black it carries the GT inspired red-line stripe along lower body side complimenting the Style Steel wheels which wear red-line tires. The interior is fitted in correct pattern vinyls and mounted to the steering column are the Rally-Pack gauges that only an experienced motorist would have ordered back then. The dashboard is plain and simple and had not been cut, sporting the heater-defroster controls and that so-cool transistorized push-button AM radio. Under the hood is reported to be tidy and complete. The restoration work on this car was completed a few years ago but its build looks showroom fresh. The Mustang was a relatively simple machine, which might be one of the reasons that so many love their little pony cars. Mustang created a whole new market and this 2+2 is sure to be a leader wherever it goes. 134 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Well Documented History of This Car

The Model - In the early 1930’s, as America’s financial situation worsen, it was a tough time for the luxury car market. Despite dwindling sales at Pierce Arrow, new mechanical advancements were still being developed. Joining the multi-cylinder market with its own V12 engine for the 1932 model year, Pierce Arrow was hoping for an industry turn around. Ab Jenkins, the Mormon Meteor as he was known, was selected to pull off the fete. It took some time by by 1933, the AAA recognized 14 world speed records. Probably his most interesting fete was traveling an average of 117.77 MPH for 24 hours straight. Demonstrating the ease of operation of the Pierce Arrow, after 24 hours he emerged clean shaven having smuggled shaving cream and a safety razor on board the race car. If nothing else, Jenkins wa to s a showman and the Pierce Arrow was his stage that day.

136 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car - Jenkins constructed three V12 powered Pierce Arrows and unfortunately none of those cars survive. In the early 2000’s noted collector John Hollansworth wanted to build a replica of the special boattail speedster as a tribute to Jenkins. He contacted Marv Jenkins, Ab’s son, and was able to borrow original drawings and photos to base the recreation on. Many factory components including a 1932 V12 frame, a 1933 V12 engine, and a set of vintage Rudge-Whitworth wheels, were used. Enlisting the talents of Jamie Hart, an instructor at McPherson College in Kansas, the replica body was recreated while Armour Titus constructed a 6-carb set up just as Jenkins had used. When finished, Hollansworth took the car to the Salt Flats and where he reached 110 MPH. Soon after our consignor purchased the car and has kept it maintained, ready to make another run. Under new ownership, who knows, one might just be able to match Jenkin’s mark of 127 MPH!

The Model - The 1960s was Indy’s great “Era of Innovation.” During no other period in the history of the Indianapolis 500 was there such a proliferation of experimentation in chassis configuration, the progression from front to rear engine cars, two wheel drive and all-wheel drive, plus a panoply of engine configurations: four cylinders, V-8s, sixes, super and turbocharging; plus a brief dalliance with the ultimate aircraft powerplants, the turbine. Turbines competed at Indy only two years – 1967 and 1968 – showing great speed and potential, but never able to pull off the much anticipated win. The all-wheel drive aerodynamically wedged Lotus 56, designed specifically for the ‘68 race, appeared to have it all. Promoter and racing enthusiast extraordinaire Andy Granatelli’s STP Racing team entered a trio of the softly whining “Wooshmobiles” to be driven by Joe Leonard, Graham Hill, and Mike Spence. Hill and Leonard traded record qualifying speeds, with Leonard winning the pole. The cars were so fast that others protested, and the wedge shaped turbine was ultimately outlawed by USAC. The Car -This is the very car driven by Graham Hill at Indy in 1968, wearing race number 70 then and now. Hill, who won the race as a rookie in 1966 and knew how to do the job, ran competitively in the 1968 Indy 500, still in a position to challenge for the win when involved in a minor accident which took him out of competition just past the race’s half way point. Post the abrupt end to its racing career, the car was owned for some years by NASCAR racing legend Richard Petty, who had a long time relationship with Granatelli and STP. The car has since been magnificently and authentically restored to its 1968 Indy 500 “as run” appearance and configuration, standing as an important building block of motorsports history and a sure invitation to nearly any vintage racing event or concours. 140 W W W.

1 of 3 Vince Granatelli Team Cars To Run In The USAC Dirt Car Championship In 1968

Ultra Rare Aluminum Head Chrysler Plymouth 360 Exclusive To Granatelli STP Racing

Car Is Restored, Fresh and Race Ready To 1968 Configuration and Spec

Sold On Bill of Sale Engine Number: WRP 135-4002 Engine: 360 ci Plymouth OHV V-8 Cylinder Aluminum Westlake cylinder heads Slide Valve Fuel-Injection / 750-800 est hp No transmission direct drive hand operated clutch only / Rear-wheel drive The Model - USAC Champ level dirt car competition was a points-relevant element of Indy car racing until the early 1970s, with the series championship determined by the success of drivers on both dirt and pavement. All of the big name drivers raced on the dirt throughout most of the 1960s and early 70s – Foyt, the Unser brothers, Mario Andretti, Lloyd Ruby and many greats of the day raced hard and successfully in the big dirt cars. The cars loosely resemble non-winged sprinters, but are a unique breed apart from them. Grant King is among the world’s premier builders of midget, sprint and Champ level dirt cars, with countless race wins and championships to his credit. For a time these older Championship dirt cars were a bit overlooked, but have since become highly collectible, and are now viable as vintage racing machines. Their tail out, “two turning, two burning” driving attitude is a thrill to watch as the cars power sideway through corners, spraying dirt and mud from their massive rear tires. The Car - Vince Granatelli’s STP racing team ran a three car roster of these Grant King built Champ Dirt cars for 1968, for drivers Greg Weld, the late Art Pollard, and the incomparable Mario Andretti. This car was assigned to Weld. It is interesting that his father, Andy, also owned and managed the three-car STP Turbine effort running at Indy the same year. The Andretti/ Pollard/Weld machines were first class series competitors, running an unusual Keith Black built, Chrysler backed 360 cubic-inch Plymouth V-8 featuring slide valve fuel-injection and ultra rare Westlake aluminum heads. The consignor advises that components for just 10 of these engines were produced and that the engine was exclusive to Vince Granatelli’s organization. This car has also been raced by John Andretti, Kevin Olson, Wally Pankratz and others. It enjoyed a competitive career from the late 1960s through the late 90s prior to retiring from front line competition. It has been rebuilt and freshened to its 1968 configuration, and is show and race ready. 142 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Factory Original J-code 429 Cobra-Jet

Professional Highest Quality Restoration

Pure Muscle Car from the End of the Era

The Model - By the early 1970’s, the pressure was on for American car makers to dial-back their performance claims. Insurance companies were hitting owners of high performance automobiles with major premium increases, the Federal Government was starting to raise safety concerns, plus there was a growing movement towards cutting back on emissions with the biggest sacrifice being horsepower ratings. But there were still a few vehicles offered with seemingly unlimited horsepower and the Torino Cobra with the J-code 429 Ram-Jet V8 was Ford’s most potent package. While a total of 3,054 Cobra packages were sold, the vast majority had engines that were a lot tamer than the animal installed under this car’s hood. 1971 would mark the end of the 429 Cobra Jet engine and with it the end of an era that if one wants to really enjoy, requires the purchase of a car like this, a genuine “E-ticket”.

The Car - Finding a J-code 429 equipped Torino Cobra is rare, finding one as nicely presented as this example with color, looks, equipment and quality, is nearly impossible. This car appears to have been treated to a full rotisserie restoration this Cobra was returned to better-than-new condition. According to the Marti Report for this Torino, it’s one of just 408 produced in this color combination. Among other highly sought after options are the Magnum 500 wheels, back window louvres, front disc brakes, the in-dash “ribbon� tachometer and just for nostalgia, a push-button basic AM radio. The application of this paint with the black competition markings, looks fierce and menacing to those who come up against this Cobra. That little emblem depicting a Cobra ready to strike pretty much sums up the attitude this car was born with, be cautious, be wary, and you might be able to tame the beast.


ot 16 4 L 1935 Morgan Super Sports Tri-Wheeler Designer: Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan Estimate: $75,000 - $95,000

Ownership History known back to 1960’s

Unique Looks, Registered as Motorcycle

Upgraded Brakes & Rare Magneto

The Model - When HFS Morgan put his first tri-wheel car on the market in 1911, it was a revolutionary achievement. First, his “trike” was recognized as a motorcycle, not a car and therefore much reduced tax burden. Morgan tri-wheelers used sliding pillar independent front suspension from the beginning, and often featured lightweight aluminum body panels on wooden frames of ash. Today looked up as sort of a novelty car, there are parts of this world where the 3-wheel wonders are highly prized and taken out for vintage racing events. There is a thrill about driving one of these little open cars with the engine in front and the dual exhaust resonating out the tailpipes behind you.

First the addition of hydraulic brakes were installed followed by an adjustment to the height of the headlights being reduced. One unique addition was a Boyce MotoMeter mounted atop the radiator. One unusual item about the engine is that it uses a magneto rather that a distributor with points. This car resided for many years in Ohio before making its way to Texas where it was treated to a full restoration nearly 20 years ago. Used very rarely since the work was completed it looks to be a decent show car, but even more rewarding would be to drive and enjoy this Morgan Super Sports.

Sold on Bill of Sale Engine: 2.3L L-Head 8-Cylinder Solex 1-Barrel Up-Draft Carburetor with Supercharger / 180 bhp 4-Speed Manual Transmission Four Wheel Mechanical Drum Brakes

Worlds Best Factory Built Bugatti Recreation

Faithfull to Original Interchangable Parts to Bugattis

Fully Fuctional and Absolute Thrill to Drive

The Model The legendary Type 35 is the most important pre-war race car ever produced. With current values in the neighborhood of $3 million for an original factory Type 35, not many people own one, fewer ever experience the thrill of driving one. In the late 1980’s, restorer specializing in Bugatti, Leonida Anadon knew that a real Type 35 was far out of his reach, so using a customer’s car as a pattern and set about to build himself an authentic replica of this historic model. When first shown other asked for a copy, thus was born Pur Sang. These cars are not just a borrowed chassis and engine with outside skin that looks like the Bugatti, these car are built in the old-world artisan ways. With Argentina’s materials restrictions, Pur Sang has to create everything, the castings, emblems even the tires, are all built under their high quality control. 148 We’re sure Ettore Bugatti would approve. t


The Car - One of the beauties of the Pur Sang Type 35 is that should be driven and this one has seen its share of miles. The paint work exhibits a few small cracks and dings, adds to the character of the car by providing a patina of enjoyment. Driving the Pur Sang is like driving the real thing, cable operated brakes, authentic instrumentation and controls, even the safety wire used to secure the body panels. Brightwork is shows some aging but no sign of neglect, and mechanically, it is as pure as could hope. Pur Sang employed a couple of well concealed updates, such as a plain crankshaft rather than the roller bearing style and the magneto has been replaced with a modern distributor. If you’ve ever wanted to drive a vintage Bugatti but didn’t want to risk a multi-million investment, Pur Sang will fill that thrill. 149 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Recently Recognized as a “Full Classic” by the CCCA

Designer: David Wallace (President of Chrysler)

Immediately Recognizable and Admired

Ideal Touring or Vacation Vehicle

Estimate: $125,000 - $145,000

Chassis Number: 7407494 Decoded: 740=Chrysler Town & Country convertible; 7494=Chassis Unit Number Engine: 323 ci L-head 8-Cylinder 2 Barrel Carburetor / 135 bhp 4-Speed Fluid-Drive Semi-Automatic Transmission Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes Mileage: 74,573 (Believed Actual)

The Model - Shortly before America was thrown into WWII, David Wallace, President of the Chrysler Corporation as well as holding the same title for Pekin Wood Products in Helena, Arkansas, felt that beautiful wood bodies on powerful Chrysler chassis would build show-room traffic. He personally guided the design and production of a limited number of cars before war-time production shut down the assembly lines. As with other American car companies, Chrysler did a mild up-dating of their 1942 models and got into production, but with a couple of additions at Wallace’s request, a Windsor based wood-bodied sedan and the New Yorker based convertible both placed in the new Town & Country series. Elegant, labor-intensive and not inexpensive, the T&C convertibles were a symbol of wealth, prosperity and elegance. Over its three year run from 1946 to 1948, a total of just 8,348 of these impressive cars were produced.


The Car – Having been treated to a top quality restoration several years ago, this beautiful convertible has been well maintained and is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. Among the many features this car carries are the four chrome wire wheels wearing a set of fresh wide-whitewall tires. It is also equipped with an original push-button AM radio, electric clock, heater-defroster, as well as accessory spot lights and painted to match rear fender skirts. Keeping this car era-correct, it still retains its six-volt electrical system. Finished in Noel Green, the interior is fitted out in a contrasting dark green and tan leather motif that really adds to the elegance of this fine automobile. With its recent recognition by the CCCA as a “Full Classic”, this car stands ready to whisk you away on a journey, you only have to decide which way to go, shall it be to “town” or to the “country”?

During this time, William Lyons and his team were working on improved engines for when peace would come. In order to generate much needed cash, the Mark V Luxury Saloon went into production in 1946, which allowed the development and release of the XK120 for 1949. Immediately it was recognized as a sporty car ready to race which helped fuel sales. Offered only in roadster form, a fixedhead coupe joined the line in 1951, followed by the Drop-Head Coupe in 1953. It was the best of everything, style, comfort and plenty of performance. Aimed for export, mostly to the United States, sales were strong but limited as the Jaguar retailed at nearly $4,000, about the same price as a Cadillac Coupe de Ville hardtop. The Car – This example has been treated to a full restoration showing excellent mechanics, smooth and properly aligned body panels in dove grey, this is car is sure to win awards. Adding to the sparkling appearance are the factory chrome wire wheels with knock-off hubs wearing understated blackwall tires. With the taut black top up, the passenger are comforted in supple burgundy seats and car view the restored solid walnut wood-faced dashboard only offered in the DHC models, whose gauges appear to be as nice as when they were produced 61 years ago. In the boot, the spare tire is neatly stored and includes copies of maintenance manual and factory “spares” catalog as well as original tools. Our consignor who has owned a number of XK’s, said the smoothness of operation, down to the transmission, is the best he has ever seen for the “120” family. 152 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

ot 16 8 L 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster Estimate: $1,750,000 - $2,000,000

From The First Year of 300SL Roadster Production

Recent Restoration by Mercedes-Benz

Rare Original Color Combination with Rudge Racing Knock-off Wheels

Chassis Number: 198.042.7500239 Engine: 2996 CC single overhead camshaft Inline 6-cylinder engine 250 bhp, Bosch mechanical fuel injection Four speed manual transmission; rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drum brakes Rudge racing knock-off wheels, fully independent suspension, fitted luggage set Mileage: 34,550

The Model - The 300SL roadster of 1957-1963 is unquestionably among Mercedes-Benz best ever sports cars. Stemming directly from the seminal 300SL Gullwing coupe, the later roadster version shares most of the coupe’s race-derived chassis components and mechanicals. The original Gullwing was a strong seller from its 1954 launch, yet North American importer Max Hoffman, plus many customers and dealers, clamored for an open version of this thrilling machine. So the bodywork was redesigned by Mercedes-Benz to create an elegant open two-seat roadster variant, which came to market for 1957. The roadster model benefits from a more aerodynamic headlight design than that of the coupe, and also from an improved steering system. Many celebrities have owned 300SL roadsters, among them actress Natalie Wood, actor Robert Stack, and Playboy magazine Founder Hugh M. Hefner. For some time, the Gullwing was considered the more desirable model among 300 SLs and values reflected that, however now the cars are considered much more equally desirable, also reflected in the parity of recent values. 154 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car- This first year of production example is one of less than 30 300SL roadsters painted this rare, 1957-only Strawberry Red Metallic. More than a quarter of a million dollars has recently been invested in it for considerable mechanical and cosmetic restoration work performed at the factory’s Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in California, to include a fully retrimmed interior (in factory correct materials to its original colors including a new convertible top), extensive chromework, a complete engine overhaul, including the cooling and fuel injection systems. The four-speed manual transmission has been comprehensively rebuilt using one of the last remaining factory original gear sets. The exhaust, suspension and brake systems have also been replaced and/or refurbished to factory spec. The car’s paintwork has been refreshed and panel gaps aligned. The undercarriage, engine compartment, trunk area, chassis and wheel-wells have also been extensively detailed. The car presents and drives beautifully, and is ready for car shows, vintage road rallies and the long distance luxury grand touring it was designed and built for.

Introduced at the 1953 Turin Auto Show by its developer, Renzo Rivolta’s Iso Corporation, interest from the press was more than just passing. A number of companies outside of Italy applied for licenses to build this one-door wonder and none were more prolific than BMW from Germany. Using their popular L-head single cylinder engine similar to their R-27 motorcycle powerplant, BMW’s sales reached far outside of their national borders with a number of cars exported to the USA. While they were a bit of a novelty in the States, in Europe, they were quite practical with over 160,000 units produced. The Car - Restoration of this car started with a very solid original car, and it is one of the more desirable models among collectors. To the untrained eye, all Isettas may look alike, but little things like window design, folding tops and the highly sought after “Z” trim, named after the zig-zag molding on the rear quarters, makes this edition all the rage. Mechanically this Isetta starts up on the first try and with a little practice, the shifting ability is as easy as eating apple strudel. Finished in a period correct two-tone of white over black, the interior is done in a simple, yet pleasing and accurate gray-white plaid pattern. While this is a museum quality car, it’s just too cute and too nice to park it. Perfect for cruising or for taking part in micro-car shows, this Isetta is sure to turn heads and gain admiration from all who see it.

Former NCRS Top Flight Award With 99 of 100 Points

Investment Quality Ready For Show Or For Go

The Model - In the fall of 1962, the automotive scene changed dramatically with the release of the original 1963 Stingray from Corvette. With a wind-slicing front end-design featuring flip-up concealed headlights and streamline the likes of which had never been seen in an American production car, there was no mistaking this new car from Chevrolet. It also cemented the Corvette name into the history books. For 1965 a number of upgrades were seen such as disc brakes on all four wheels becoming standard, functional front fender side louvers and a redesigned, more aerodynamic hood profile. Sales saw an increase of nearly 6% over the previous year, making America’s true sports car and an honor to own a real Corvette. The Car - Finished in the beautifully contrasting colors of Ermine White for the exterior complimented by a red vinyl interior, this coupe was treated to an award winning frame-off restoration a few years back. Fresh from the shop it came under the eyes of strictest of critics in this hobby, the NCRS judges. When they were finished, this car was presented Top Flight status having scored 99 of 100 points. Since its glory days a few upgrades have been added including a Vintage Air Conditioning system. This car still fields that top-shelf presentation and exhibits bodywork that is smooth, properly aligned and without stress cracks. The interior and all gauges look just as new as the day this car left the St. Louis factory. Mechanically this is a turn-key, “get out and enjoy the ride” type of car and to do that just make sure your hand is the last one in the air. 158 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Model - To say that Max Hoffman had a direct influence on the sports car scene in the USA during the early to late 1950’s would be pretty much spot-on. As the leading Porsche customer, he approached the factory and asked for an “entry-level” model that could be used as a daily driver, albeit in fair weather, and on weekends, taken to the local road races and allow the owners to compete at real racing venues. The Speedster was about a bare-bones as you could get, no sound insulation, a single unlined lift-up top, side curtains rather than roll-up windows and a savings of over 200 pounds and $900 over the 356 Cabriolet. With an aerodynamic styling that gave it one of the lowest coefficient of drag ratings in automotive history, the Speedster in roadster form, would live from 1954 to 1958 and leave a legend in its wake. 160 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car - This unique vehicle was built at the end of Pre-A era just as the 356A was gearing up for production. According to the factory Kardex, 81048 was fitted with a 356A engine and was sold as an “A” model. Along the way that factory engine was lost and today it is powered by a 1958 era 1600 Super powerplant. Triple Black in color, the original seats were replaced with proper era buckets from a coupe, a common practice back in the 1950’s. It is fitted with the hard-to-find Pre-A style gauges that used the curved glass to reduce glare and they are all functional. All cosmetics have been restored to high standards and its performance on the open road is smooth and sweet with easy shifting and lightning quick response. A lot of history, a lot of fun and a lot of memorable miles lie ahead for the next owner of this sporty roadster. 161 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Even though it was designed only for right-hand drive, a good number of these little roadsters were sold to the USA. It was logical that for the next generation a left-hand drive model should be created, and as such, almost 30,000 MG-TD roadsters would be produced, the vast majority, nearly 23,500, coming to America and setting production records for the little sports car maker. Who couldn’t love the TD, it had peppy performance, reliable mechanics and they are a blast to drive. MG’s slogan of the day was “Safety Fast”, and it described the TD. With rack and pinion steering, ample brakes and easy operations, the MG-TD introduced thousands in America to the joy of British sports car. The Car - This TD appears to have been given a full restoration and the miles on the odometer indicate how little it has been used. Finished in Ivory, the red grille seems to compliment the red leatherette interior. Care and attention to detail were not skimped on during the process of bringing back the beautiful dashboard with its speedometer, tachometer, clock and water temperature gauges in place. As with all TD’s there was no fuel gauge but these engines could sip their way down the road and deliver about 300 miles to the tank. The detailed engine and under hood detailing display the degree of perfection given to this little roadster. It reportedly runs out quite well and is fitted with wire wheels all around including the spare. If you have ever wanted to experience the open road from the driver’s seat of a sports car, then look no further than this little MG TD. 162 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Model -Truly unique and provenanced platinum level hot rods, designed and built to ultra high show quality levels by premium well known custom hot rod builders, have a following all their own in the collector car universe. As such their values and desirability levels have increased manifold in recent years. Top flight hot rodding awards at major shows are highly sought after. It takes a driven, open minded owner and a gifted designer to conceive the vehicles leading to the most compelling and competitive builds. Plus the most capable builders, with true jewelry level craftsmen on staff, to execute these concepts to the very highest levels with little or no concern to cost or budgetary constraints – the ultimate enabler for an award winning rod or custom is a concept that’s truly unique, often stemming from time honored themes, yet taking the underlying vehicle to that proverbial next level of design, materials usage, fit, finish, engineering and detailing. The Car - George Poteet, one of America’s premier musclecar collectors, hot rodders, and racers, is long a fan of the great Harry Miller’s work, renowned for his elegantly designed art deco era high performance racing and sports cars, particularly recognized for their engineering innovation and craftsmanship. Poteet and Brian Stinger developed a hot rod design based around a 1932 Ford pickup, trimmed as if a period racing car, wearing a Miller inspired grille shell and other design elements; an innovative “what if” machine conveying what a 30s era racing truck would look like if Harry Miller had designed and built such a thing. To create this Faberge Egg quality machine, he turned to Stinger’s Hot Rod Shop and Rad Rides by Troy, two of hot rodding’s most accomplished builders. The basis for the car is a structurally reengineered Ford chassis. The rest is pure bespoke custom, using partial ’32 Ford sheet metal, and a smorgasbord of aluminum, brass, and other top end components. Awards include Blackie Gejeian Award of Excellence, Best Detail, Best Rod Truck (Grand National Roadster Show), 1st place Altered Pickup/Outstanding Detail/Outstanding Display/Outstanding Altered Rod (Detroit Autorama), Truck of the Year 2010 (Goodguys).

The Model - With BMC’s decision to cease production of the popular Austin-Healey 3000, it was felt that the MGB platform would be ideal for the next generation 6-cylinder sports car. Though it required quite of bit of chassis redesign, aside from a bulge in the hood to accommodate the larger power plant, the MGC looked much like its four-cylinder brother. When first released, critics panned the car, but those who owned them soon learned how to dial them in. One of the biggest issues was handling and steering. After the car went out of production in 1969, improvements in tire technology greatly improved the response of this model and they could become peppy little performers with top speeds attained in independent testing of 120 MPH. Other changes included larger brakes and a sturdier multi-layer clutch system. Production started in early 1967 and ended in late 1969 with just 4,544 roadsters released.

ot 17 5 L 1954 Ford Crestline Skyliner Victoria Hardtop Designer: Gene Walker Estimate: $35,000 - $50,000

America’s First “Glass-top” Production Car

Only Year Skyliner as Full Victoria Hardtop

First Year OHV Engine

Chassis Number: U4DF159744 Decoded: U=239 cid V8 engine; 4=1954 model year; D= Dallas, TX plant; F=Skyliner “glass top” Victoria hardtop; 159744=59,744th scheduled for production Engine: 239 cid OHV V-8 2 Barrel Carburetor / 130 bhp 3-Speed Column-shift Ford-O-Matic Automatic Transmission Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes Mileage: 87,503 (Showing on Odometer) The Model - While 1949 might have brought out the most changed Ford since the 1928 Model A, and all-new sheet metal had arrived in 1952, for those who looked past the outside of the car, they found a whole new car. Ball-joint front suspension greatly improved handling, and the introduction of the first overhead valve V8 in the low-priced three, made Ford the one to follow. But it was the car’s design features that captured customers and the new Skyliner’s “see-through top” fell right into the “Jet-Age” that buyers were looking for. Featuring a dark green, heavy-duty Plexiglass panel, it replaced the steel covering for the front half of the roof. Realizing how uncomfortable this could become on sunny warm days, a snap-in liner was provided to keep temperatures at bay. While the advertised list price was $2,333 when equipped with the optional V8, just 17,762 of these cars rolled off the assembly line. The Car - This example is one of just 1,021 Skyliners produced at Ford’s Dallas facility. Hand-picked teams skilled in the method of installing these tops insured the fit and weather-proofing of was complete. Skyliner was offered in only a handful of color selections of which this example is finished in Sandstone White roof over the Raven Black body. Under the hood the new overhead-valve V8 powered these cars with 20 more horses than the previous year’s flathead V8, using nearly identical displacement figures. Fitted with Ford-O-Matic transmission, this was the height of power and driving enjoyment. This was the only year Skyliner was offered as a full Victoria hardtop with the option being found on very few Crown Victorias for 1955 and 1956. The ultimate drive for this car would be on a clear moonlit night, finding rural setting and watching the stars go by through the roof of your own 1954 Ford Skyliner. 168 W W W.

Chassis Number: BE771 Decoded: BE= Bristol Engine; 771=Chassis Unit number Engine: 1971 cc, 120 HP Bristol in-line 6-cylinder 4-Speed manual transmission Hydraulic front disc brakes with rear drum brakes

The Model -From its beginning, AC Cars of England has always been one of the most innovative manufacturers in the industry. Hand-craftsmanship has limited production but these sporty vehicles have always been legendary performers throughout Europe. During the 1950’s the little Ace sports roadster claimed many victories. When the Aceca coupe was developed using the same ladder frame construction of the AC Ace, championed by John Tojeiro, it also won critical acclaim. The Aceca featured hand-formed aluminum body panels that reminded many of the styling of the Ferrari 166 and winning praises when it debuted at the 1954 Earls Court Car show. With full foru-wheel independent suspension, it was a superb handling machine that posted a number of wins through the UK and Europe. The Car -This Aceca coupe was treated to a full restoration in the late 1980’s by Spencer Lane-Jones, one of Britain’s most respected specialists for both AC Cars and Bristol motors. A period correct replacement engine was installed and the car was converted to left-hand drive at that time. Finished in Rouge Irise exterior color it presents an elegant look with the original tan leather seats. All new wood trim was used on the dashboard, and brightwork throughout the car has been brilliantly re-plated. Used very sparingly since its completion this car recently received a new set of tires and wheels while the engine has recently been brought up to top mechanical condition. In recent road-tests of this this splendid car it was reported as being the best handling sport coupe our driver has experienced in quite some time. 170 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Preserved Car with Original Coachwork and Original Brass Perfect Candidate for Preservation Awards or Restoration Unique Example from Earliest Motoring Days

Chassis Number: 11551 Decoded: 11551=Engine Number Engine Number:106 cid “L-Head” 2-Cylinder 1 Barrel Carburetor / 8.0 bhp 2-Speed Pleantary Transmission Two Wheel Mechanical Drum Brakes

The Model - After a dispute with the owners of the Oldsmobile brand in 1904, Ransom E. Olds ventured out to start his second automobile company and established REO in 1905. Within two short years, REO was the third most popular brand of automobile in the country. His advanced knowledge and engineering skills, plus stellar reputation even among the competition, lead to this success. The Model G was introduced in 1907 as an improvement to the same basic engine type used in his famous “ curved dash” Model R, the original horseless carriage that had really propelled his success. Sporting 8 hp, and simple but effective mechanics, with elliptic springs and single chain drive, these cars were known as a “Gentleman’s Roadster”. Based on a 78” wheelbase, they could travel from coast-to-coast, which they did on a regular basis in displays of the durability and dependability of the REO.


The Car - While the early history of this car has been lost to the ages, what is known through research and the tale told by our consignor, this is a 1908 example of early American automotive technology. It was acquired in the early 1970’s as part of a multi-car deal and our vendor had hopes of getting this car running and seeing it go to a new home some 40-plus years ago. Due to several reasons including health issues, the car was put in protective storage for over four decades, emerging recently with the aim of it finally going to a new owner. It is essentially a well preserved example with a removable rear passenger compartment, enabling it to be converted to a two-passenger roadster. The original body REO markings are still visible as well as correct brass features with factory stamps that verify this barn-find to be as it was new in 1908 after 107 years. This unrestored original and mechanically complete motorcar is a testament to proper storage as after nearly half a century the motor was recently started and the car driven a few feet. The motor and coolant system will still need attention as it does not hold or properly circulate fluids. This simple but effective means of transportation is just what Ransom E. Olds was hoping to achieve in early 20th century.

Chassis Number: 1199383 Engine: 36-72 Volt / 27 HP Electric Motor 1 Speed forward, 1-Speed reverse Two-wheel mechanical drum brakes.

The Model - If you ask most automotive historians which car could trace its history back the farthest, most would probably say Studebaker which could trace its history back to 1852 making at first wheelbarrow, followed by buggies and the famed Conestoga wagons. But there was an older company, Milburn Electric Car, which could trace its heritage back to 1848. As early as 1908, Milburn was building bodies for other car makers before starting to produce their own electric vehicle starting in 1915. One of Milburn’s greatest innovations was selling customers a second or even a third set of batteries, mounted on a rack that could easily slide in and out of a car, extending its daily work capabilities. Purchased by General Motors in 1923, it was decided to discontinue the electric cars and dedicate the facilities of the company to help produce the profitable and more popular gasoline powered lines. The Car - While the early history of this car have been lost, it is evident that this car hasn’t seen a lot of miles. Purchased by our consignor as part of a collection, it was put into protective storage for over 40 years, waiting to come out and greet the new world, preserved in all its glory. Typical of electric cars of the day, it features a cozy passenger cabin. The original fabric covered seats beckon to the driver and passenger to take hold of the tiller and go for a ride. With a top speed of just under 20 MPH, the brakes would prove more than adequate. It also has a pair of rear-facing occasional jump seats in the cabin, and these also appear to be original. Capable of up to 70 miles on a charge, in this day of growing interest in electric vehicles, here is a 92 year old “green” car, that speaks to world automotive history. 176 W W W.

The Model - It seems so ironic that when Cadillac brought out its two most powerful engines first with the mighty “452” V16 in 1930 followed by the “370” V12 in 1931, that USA as well as most of the world, was going through a major depression that severely limited the sale of up-scale multi-cylinder luxury cars. Being very optimistic that things would be getting better, Harley Earl’s design team were looking for new body styles to attract the ever shrinking luxury car market, which is how this unique car came to be. Starting with a bare Town Coupe body shell, it used as the basis for the transformation on one of the most strikingly attractive body styles to ever grace any automotive chassis. Developed with an eye to the up-scale multi-cylinder crowd, this prototype body was mounted on the “370” V12 chassis from 1932 and would end up being the only Convertible Victoria V12 ever produced.

180 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car - According to the research done by our consignor, this car carries what is effectively a prototype body for Cadillac’s Convertible Victoria. Starting with a Town Coupe, modifications were made to create a rather stunning coachwork where the proportions and lines played well on the multi-cylinder car chassis. This body, which carries serial No. 1, was placed on a 370-B chassis and was used for a number of marketing tests and engineering studies. While 3 other similar bodies would eventually find their way to the V16 chassis, this is the only example ever placed on a V12 car. After its corporate uses were completed it was presented to an executive of the Cadillac Division where it was used for a couple of year before being sold off. Our consignor acquired the car in the late 1960’s, at which time it appeared to have had some cosmetic work done, but the body was sound and solid. When the family moved to Texas in the early 1970’s, this V12 Convertible Victoria followed along and was placed in a storage barn with the consignor’s full intentions to bring it back to its original glory. Unfortunately, life happened and now after 40 years of slumber this historic Cadillac has emerged and will hopefully go to a new home to where it can return to its original state of elegance. The car is offered complete and unmolested original and has recently been started and operated since is long-term hibernation. It appears to be a solid car finished in a two-tone aqua color scheme. Whether it is decided to preserve this car in its current state or take it back to its original beauty, this is a very unique opportunity to acquire an one-of-a-kind automobile with historic provenance and beauty that many others will admire for future generations.

Unmolested Barn-Find of Desirable 2dr Body Style

Historically Preserved Car

Superior Performance of Famous V12 Engine

The Model - In 1930, Cadillac made headlines around the world when they introduced the mighty V16. Unfortunately, it was a stellar car introduced at the on-set on one of the worst financial crises in history resulting in a lack of sales. Undaunted, a few months later, Cadillac’s Chief Engineer Ernest Seaholm, announced another new break-through, the Model 370 V12 series. Effectively it was the same basic engine as the V16, with four fewer cylinders. By 1933, V16 production had slowed to only confirmed orders while the V12 was finding some marketing success even though just 952 units were produced that year. Among the exclusive body styles offered on the V12 chassis was the Town Coupe which could comfortably accommodate 4-passengers, or 5 if needed, and presented a smart and appealing design. 182 W W W.

The Car - It last changed hands in the late 1960’s while our consignor was residing in Wisconsin. It was a fully operational vehicle and he and his wife showed the car at several events including meetings of the Cadillac-LaSalle Club. Several reasons including health necessitated a move to Texas, so the Town Coupe was moved to its new spread where it was placed in a barn to curate for over four decades. Finished in Classic Blue, the lines on this car are remarkable and it retains all of its original running gear. The interior appears to be mostly original with gray-stripe broadcloth fabric covering the seats and side panels, while the original headliner remains in place. While it lived in a somewhat protected environment, there are still expected signs of aging on this 82 year old classic. The motor has been started since being extracted from the Barn and vehicle was recently driven a very short distance. It is offered as running barn-find which will still need further attention to make it road worthy. This is a very unique opportunity to acquire a diamond in the rough, equipped of course with the legendary Cadillac 12 cylinder power plant.

The Model -In 1930, just as the world started to fall apart in financial despair, Cadillac introduced its most powerful engine ever with the “452” V16 series. These elegant cars were outstanding in design, but slow in sales. By the latter part of the 1930’s the economy started to improve and Cadillac wanted to keep its status as the only luxury car in the world with V16 power. A new “L-Head” design V16 was released for 1938, designated for use in the Series 90 chassis. Gracing this new, smoother and more economical engine, was the superb coachwork from Fleetwood with offerings from an elegant town car, to a vehicle of the utmost in conspicuous consumption, a two-passenger roadster or coupe. Despite improvements to the economy, sales for the mighty V16 remained slow and by 1940 these road going giants were now more.

Car - According to our consignor this Imperial limousine was ordered by Phillip Wrigley, heir to the chewing gum magnate’s vast assets. Wanting the passenger compartment kept as private as possible, the optional occasional seats were not specified. After Mr. Wrigley’s ownership the trail grows cold, but it was acquired by our consignor in the early 1970’s. In good mechanical condition at that time, little was ever done to, or with this car, and shortly after it joined his collection, it was stashed away in a rural Texas barn. Today the car is an unmolested original vehicle with the smooth black leather seat for the driver while the passenger compartment is appointed in rich wool broadcloth. While the engine hasn’t been run in several decades, it is complete down to the dual carburetors and their oil-bath air-cleaners. For the new owner they can decide to erase 40 plus years of the patina of storage, clean it back to its original beauty, or perform a full, concours style restoration.

Remarkably Well Preserved Original Mobile Home

Prefect Example of Art-Deco Travel

Time Capsule Featuring Hand-Crafted Workmanship

The Model - From the late 1920’s to the onset of World War II, one segment of the transportation world that was growing, despite economic woes, was the travel trailer industry. A leader in this growing world was Kozy Coach located in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Their advertising was effective in telling prospective buyers that “You’re Ahead with a Kozy Coach Behind”, or “Favorite of the Road-Wise”. They started with a welded steel chassis that was said to prevent sagging, side-sway, and assure quiet operation and perfect alignment. In 1937 three models were offered, the Junior, e Standard, and the Deluxe which offered all the comforts of a home away from home. Kozy Coaches were among the best trailers on the market and survived well into the 1950’s. The Car - Our consignor acquired this trailer in Wisconsin. Purchased from the original owner, a farmer from Wisconsin, who said that it was only once during the summer of 1937, when it went on a four-day trip around “The Dairyland” state. Upon returning home the trailer was carefully stored away in the barn where it remained until sold to our consignor in the early 1970’s. With fresh tires it was towed down from Illinois to his new home in Texas where it was used for one night on the road. Then it went back to sleep for another 40 plus years. The exterior has gone through a recent sympathetic refreshment with varnish and trim paint. The body is impressively original as when it was first produced with the original exterior masonite panels in outstanding condition like no survivor of its kind that we have encountered before. Looking inside, all of the original fabrics have been preserved as has the woodwork with its Art-Deco styling and original interior varnish. This is real time capsule that can be used and appreciated. 186 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Custom Rebuilt Engine Deliver Superb Performance

Sought After Styling That is Concours Ready

The Model - 1935 was a very good year for Packard with the introduction of the medium priced 120 Series of automobiles. It would be a record year in production and sales with these junior cars contributing the lion’s share. However, their senior lines continued in the tradition of being built for those who didn’t have to ask the price. Dietrich designed cars on Packard chassis form the perfect marriage and with each being a custom order, they were unique. America was still in the grips of a major economic recovery, so sales were still a bit slow. The Sport Phaeton was built on the longer 139” wheelbase chassis and improvements under the hood included all aluminum heads with higher compression which meant higher horsepower. With truly inspiring styling these Packards are today one of the most sought after classics, and like so many of these special cars, celebrity ownership doesn’t hurt. 188 W W W.

The Car - Andy Griffith was one of America’s most loved actors, from his folksy performance as Sgt. Stockdale in No Time for Sergeants, to the even-tempered portrayal as Sheriff Taylor and then the logical thinking attorney Ben Matlock, he was loved by his fans. In the early 1970’s, Dan Miller, President of Penske Racing South acquired this car and rebuilt the engine to exacting standards where it tested to be as powerful as a Super 8’s. In 1989, Griffith purchased the car and undertook a full restoration investing close to $600,000 in its workmanship. Today this outstanding car shows well with its rich burgundy lacquer finish and handcrafted leather seats, the engine runs out well and shifts smoothly thanks to Packard’s advanced designs in synchromesh technology. Recently displayed at a concours d’elegance, it was surrounded by fans of Griffith and our consignor said nearly everyone had a favorite memory of this car’s former owner.

Chassis Number: 182962703 Decoded: 18= V8-85 Engine; 2962703=2,962,703rd V8-85hp Engine Produced Since Start of 1932 Production. Engine: 221 ci L-head V-8 1 Barrel Carburetor / 85 bhp 3-Speed Manual Transmission Four Wheel Mechanical Drum Brakes Mileage: 69,245 (showing on odometer) The Model - By 1936, Ford was the leader of V8 powered cars. With Edsel Ford as president of the company, he was very much aware of what consumers were buying. E. T. “Bob” Gregorie had created a family look from the entry-level Ford to the top-shelf Lincoln Zephyr’s, one that gave these automobiles a family look that was dashing, cutting edge, but still contemporary enough to be sought after by car buyers. For 1936 a new wrap-around grill flanked by fender-mounted headlights with bullet-shaped housings highlighted the front of these cars. Interiors were roomier and offered a wide variety of optional appointments. With more motorists wanting to enjoy the comforts of enclosed driving, open models saw a dramatic drop in orders resulting in just, 5,555 Ford Deluxe Phaetons being produced for the 1936 model year, each with an FOB price of $590. The Car - Restored a few years ago this example is present in the very popular Vineyard Green exterior accented by dark brown vinyl seats and side panels with the soft top done in proper tan canvas. The factory installed “flathead V8” still is planted under the hood and is reported to run out like a top. Yellow painted wire wheels are complemented with Ford hubcaps and bring metal trim rings that accent the blackwall tires. Extras include the Banjo steering wheel, fold-down trunk rack and an enclosed spare-tire carrier mounted to the rear of the body. Doing its part in protecting the grill is a genuine grill guard mounted to the front bumper while the exhaust is ported through a chrome plated Ford logo tailpipe tip. Since its restoration it has been taken on a number of tours and thoroughly enjoyed. It has a few road acquired battlescars, but that only adds to the character of this fine automobile, one that you can write the next chapter in its legacy. 190 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Being the consummate showman, E. L. Cord’s team rented the grand ballroom at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel and announced that the car of tomorrow was here today. With lines wrapped around the building, the new Cord was a sensation. For 1937, a number of improvements were made and the 812 series was a mechanical marvel. An instant classic, Buehrig’s “coffin-nose” design was superb, with not a bad line to be found anywhere on the car. Adding to the car’s mystic was the addition of option of the Schwitzer-Cummins centrifugal supercharger which added 45 HP to the stock engine and let the motoring press know that the Cord was here to stay. Unfortunately, sales didn’t materialize and it would mark the end of automotive production by E.L. Cord. The Car - During an interview with the late Roy Brown, chief stylist of the controversial 1958 Edsel, he was asked what car influenced his design the most. His response was immediate, “Gordon Buehrigs Cord”. That is the impression many people give once they have seen these gorgeous cars. This example appears to have been given a partial cosmetic restoration a number of years ago. Finished in a rich burgundy, the interior is appointed in a similar color broadcloth featuring ivory whipcord. This car has been in storage for a number of years but is complete and in running condition. Still in place is that coveted supercharger and the sound that engine makes sounds as smooth today as it did some 78 years ago. A car of this caliber in design and importance needs a good home and in return it will give the admiration of others for saving this beautiful sedan. 192 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Physically, the Stingray looks very similar to the preceding model save for the addition of an egg-crate style grille and a few emblem changes. For those who enjoyed the small-block V8, but wanted higher output, the 350 HP edition was still the hottest choice with the discontinuation of Fuel Injection after the previous season. This set-up was quite popular especially when backed up with the four-speed transmission and posi-traction axle. On a program on constant improvements, the 1966 edition was dialed in with little things such as a revised stitching pattern for the bucket seats and finer tuning of the suspension. Corvette fans recognized these improvements with new records for the model year being set as more drivers found the enjoyment of driving America’s Sports Car. 194 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A .

Extremely Desirable Boattail Speedster

Powerful Engine for the Period

Perfect for Modern Touring

Recognized “Full Classic” Status by the CCCA

The Model - When E. L. Cord came to Auburn in 1923, the company was struggling to get rid of some stodgy looking sedans that were boring and painted dark somber colors, Cord’s simple idea, repaint them in bright multi-tone colors. The scheme worked and in record time they were gone. Cord had learned to sell the sizzle. By 1926, Cord was the President of the Auburn Automobile Company, and the roots had been established for him to build his empire. Not satisfied with quick sales, Cord enlisted one of the best designers in the trade, Al Leamy, and a number of winning designs followed. Faster and more powerful engines were developed by Lycoming for the auto trade, and of course, Cord owned this engine maker. For 1928, Auburn marketed a complete line-up of quality motorcars including the new 88 HP line which was one of Auburn’s best-selling series ever. The Car - This beautiful Speedster appears to have been treated to a fairly comprehensive restoration several decades ago, and is finished in a pleasing Fire-Engine Red over Light Tan, while the seats and door panels are fitted out in black leather. Aged well with light patina that shows quality character and originality. Leamy’s designs were flawless, that this stylish Speedster featured all the right lines coming together to terminate in the tapered rear design forming what looked like an inverted boat’s bow, thus this nickname applied to this body style. This stunning 8-88 Speedster features one of the earliest uses of the rakish V-shaped windshields, while the side mount spares add the classic splendor of this car. Mechanically sound, the Lycoming-8 runs out well, with easy shifting, effective braking and the “One-Shot” Bijur lubricating system all in place. One of the most attractive classic era cars ever produced, this 8-88 Speedster would be the centerpiece in any quality collection. 196 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

2008 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Drop Head Coupe Estimate: $50,000 - $65,000 Chassis Number: SCFBF04BX8GD08996 Engine: 4300cc DOHC V8 Electronic Fuel Injection / 380 bhp 4-Speed Automatic Transmission Power Assisted Four Wheel Hydraulic Disc Brakes Mileage: 29,800

The Model -What can you say about Aston Martin except they know class and they know sports cars. When first released it carried all the classic lines, long hood, swept back windshield, short rear deck and typical angular body lines. But under the hood the story was a bit better. 380 HP was transferred to the rear wheels via improved suspension, rack and pinion steering and a braking system that could stop on a dime, or in the UK a farthing. If you enjoy a classic combination of sensuous sheet metal and a well-connected chassis, the V8 Vantage will not disappoint.


The Car - Finished in Merlot Red with beautiful black leather seats and matching folding top, this example of British craftsmanship delivers everything you could possibly want in a British luxury sports car. You don’t need to be a secret agent to enjoy the handling and prestige of ownership of this grand touring car. With less than 30,000 miles from new this Vantage has been maintained by marque specialists and remains much as it did when it left the factory in Warwickshire, with the exception of some wicked looking spectacular wheels. All systems are reported to be in operational condition including the superior sound and entertainment devices. Of course you really don’t need any artificial distractions when you’re behind the wheel of this spectacular car.


ot 18 8 L The Model - Introduced in 1983, the Defender 90 was considered the most dependable and sturdiest off-road passenger vehicle on the market. Knowing that there was a need by people to go places where roads often didn’t, had been the reason for the formation of the Land Rover back in the late 1940’s. Rugged construction made sure the bodies of these cars held up against almost anything that they came up against. With the proven V8 engines these SUV’s had plenty of torque for climbing up a mountain and plenty of speed for highway cruising. After 30 plus years of Defender production, in January 2015, Rover announced the Defender was being discontinued with the last unit set to roll off the line in mid-December. The reason given, it was being legislated out of production. 200 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Looking at the exterior of the body there are no signs of even minor trauma and mechanically it is reported to run and drive just as it did when new. As the Defender prepares for its exit, this have driven a number of enthusiasts to look at vintage models such as this example as the chances being able to buy a new Defender may be very slim at this point in history. 201 W W W.

Of course not everyone wanted a grocery getter and pretty soon there were performance version popping up all over the country. One Texas gentleman who had an excellent working relationship with Ford, was asked to put together his own performance version of a new Mustang and he did, naming it after himself, the Shelby GT350. For the first three years of Mustang, Shelby editions were limited to the fastback body style, but in 1968, he also introduced the convertible. However, the coupe wasn’t totally overlooked by Shelby as several experimental units were produced on the coupe body. This car is a tribute to the ingenuity of and desire to be the best that the late Carroll Shelby would always strive for. The Car - Starting with a solid coupe, the original small block V8 disappeared from under the hood replaced by a 351 smallblock Windsor V8. A number of other performance conversions were added such as the Mallory dual-point distributor, ample amounts of aluminum such as the custom intake manifold, heads and radiator. A generous fuel delivery system to keep those 8-barrels well stocked in high octane gasoline. The famous “export bar” was fitted to the fender aprons to keep the body rigid with decorative items such as the Cobra valve covers and air-cleaner housing to make this car look as good as it runs. Exterior appointments include custom alloy wheels, Shelby style front grille and graphics plus an active air-intake hood. All new gauges and custom bucket seats were also installed making a comfortable ride for quick getaways. A fitting tribute to a man whose desire for speed could not be tamed.

Thus was born the 190SL. Using the mighty 300 SL as a basis for the design, it was a style that was as contemporary as anything produced in the world. With 25,881 units produced in the 9 year production from 1955 to 1963, and most of those cars coming to the USA, Hoffman scored big. When new these cars cost less than half of the 300SL’s price, but had a lot of its older brother’s habits, like a superbly designed overhead cam in-line 4-cylinder engine that was based on the in-line six combined with the accurate engineering of the chassis and suspension. Today the 190SL has become an icon of the 1950’s and is an excellent representation of post-war German innovation and technology. The Car - Treated several years ago to a full frame off restoration, this stunning 190SL is finished in Elfenbein Sage with dark green leather seats and a proper fitting black canvas soft top. All of the mechanics were gone through and feature the correct Solex carburetors, which help propel this car down the roads just at it did when new. Starting a straight and solid body, the doors, hood and decklid are all lined up just as they had been designed at the Stuttgart headquarters. While this car has been used a bit since completion, it presents quite well with all of the bright work looking as it did when new and even the glass is clear without scratches or other issues. Recently it did receive a complete brake service and the original steel wheels, adorned with trim rings and original color-keyed hubcap, were given a new set of tires. The consignor tells us this 190SL runs and drives as good as it looks. 204 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Model - Constructed like its older brother the A-108, with a steel backbone chassis, the Alpine A-110 kept its weight down with a fiberglass body. Designed by Michelotti, this competition derived, streetable Renault is a French favorite that was also built in Mexico where it carried the name Dinalpin and in Bulgaria as a Bulgaralpine. The A-110 looked strikingly similar to the A-108 with the exception of the rear end styling. The body work in the rear of the car was reshaped to accommodate the new bigger engines. This reshaping would give the car a more aggressive look that would look right at home on the rally circuits. The Alpine wouldn’t just look good on a rally course it was quite the competitor, even winning the inaugural World Rally Championship in 1973. The Car -The recent restoration of this original Alpine is to highest standards. Fitted with proper interior, wheels and accessories. This car is not only eye catching but is also a ton of fun. Every collection needs a French design Berlinette, now you can make your collection special with a piece of rally history.n

The Model - While the original 1964-65 Chevrolet Chevelles might have looked nice, for the most part they were fitted with small-block V8’s. But when the second generation was introduced for 1966, the SS version could be ordered with the might “rat-motor” 396. Born to be wild a number of these cars have been turned into some of the wildest and hairiest rides anyone could imagine. Engineered from the factory to support heavy-duty performance the 1966 Chevelle lends itself to not only performance enhancements, but also mild to wild body modifications. A beauty from when they were built in stock form, the Chevelle is an excellent starting point for custom builds. The Car - Beauty in the form of design and speed, this Pro-Touring build is just that. Starting with the 402 block from Dart, it is topped off with an 871 series blower from The Blower Shop.

(Showing on Odometer Since Restored) The Model - In late 1956, the GM Styling Studios were shaken with the trend setting design cues pioneered by the Chrysler Corporation with their Forward Look “finned” designs. Chevrolet had just entered their third and final year of the “Tri-5” family of cars and Chevy, like other GM makes, had all been slated for totally new models for 1959. Not wanting to be caught behind this “finny’ trend, a crash redesign program was instituted and the resulting 1959 Chevrolets were radical and attractive in their styling A full-wide width grille with headlights mounted on the outer edges gave the car a low sleek look. Thin rear C-pillar on the two-door hardtop spoke of lightness and speed, but the crowning achievement for these cars was the gull-wing fins over the cat’s eye taillights. Even the interiors were treated to a new tough precenting Corvette styling in a full size car. The Car - One of the most sought after Chevrolets from the 1950’s, this car represents an exercise in design that really told of the space-age generation in America. Building on a good thing, this car was treated to a full rebuilt several years ago when it received a new crate “350” V8 backed up by a four-speed transmission. All of the suspension components were upgraded including new disc brakes for the front axles. The soft trim was done in a pleasing color coordinate red vinyl with buckets and a center console upfront. Most of the dash appears stock, but mounted to the steering column is a vintage appearing tachometer to keep tabs on engine performance. Rounding out this build is a set of Crager SS chrome wheels. For style, flash and dependable performance, this ’59 Impala just can’t be beat. 210 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Engine: 239 cid “Flathead” V8 2 Barrel Carburetor / 100 bhp 3-Speed Column-shift manual Transmission Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes The Model - Ford’s all new 1949 had one mission, to get the company out of a sea of red-ink and into the black. While not perfect, the “Forty-Niner” was a hit and Ford was back on track. The most expensive body style offered was a two-door station wagon that used a metal shell, combined with exterior wood panels for structural support and to lend an air of exclusivity to the line. In 1950 the wagon was christened the Country Squire and in 1951, wore that name proudly on the doors. That year all Ford’s got a new “twin-spinner” grille with larger wrap-around parking lights up front, and while the rest of the Ford line got a new dashboard, the Country Squire retained the 1950 design through the end of production. Hand built at Ford’s Iron Mountain facility, each body was built to exacting standards and then shipped to the individual assembly plants to be decked to their powerful V8 power chassis. The Car -When the Country Squire was new it was the most expensive model in the Ford line, and when a proper restoration is done, woody wagons can become the most expensive model to bring back to its original beauty. Restored a number of years ago, it has recently been serviced and brought back to life after being part of a museum collection for many years. Finished in Sungate Ivory with factory style dark brown and tan leatherette seating, it is fitted with factory electric clock, push-button AM radio and Magic-Aire heater and defroster. Most of the wood appears to be original and has been restored with all repairs being of the highest caliber. It is currently wearing 1949 style Ford hubcaps with the exception of the spare tire mounted to the rear tailgate. With a west-coast heritage from birth, no matter where you come from, you will find this Country Squire is right up your alley. 212 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Its creator Elwood Engle, who had already moved on to Chrysler, (and whose touch is seen in the 1964-66 Imperials), returned to Ford just to accept this prestigious award. Not resting on their laurels, Lincoln continued to make improvements and 1966 would see a complete redesign but staying with Elwood’s original theme of “less-is-more”, and understated elegance in motoring. The Car -From 1961 to 1967, Lincoln produced the only four-door convertible in the USA, and it was used by heads of state and celebrities alike. This beautiful example received a cosmetic restoration several years ago and shows well with nice chrome, excellent body panel alignment and best of all, the top is fully functional, as are the rest of the power accessories including air-conditioning.

For 1956, a number of major body and chassis components were shared and both lines used the same engines, but the styling, design and market aim for Mercury was quite a bit different than Ford’s. With its distinctive side trim, aggressive looking massive chrome front grille, down to their beautifully designed taillights, the 1956 model looked nothing like its little brother, the Ford. This year three trim levels were offered, a basic Custom series, the up-scale Monterey and the top-of-the line Montclair. These top-shelf cars were immediately recognizable by the unique “saddle-trim” applied to the top of the doors where the body colors could be applied. Sharp styling and a myriad of accessories meant you make your one one-ofa-kind Mercury. The Car - Nothing says “1950’s” more than the two-tone color scheme of this Glamour Tan and Classic White Montclair hardtop. With liberal use of gleaming chrome, that unique “Z” pattern side trim and the color-matching interior in properly stitched vinyl materials it’s a car that shows well and is reported to run quite impressively. Fitted with a factory AM radio, heater-defroster and dash-mounted clock, one of the exclusives for the Montclair line is the fold-down rear-seat center armrest. Looking to the exterior, you will find that beautiful chrome bumper-grille combination up-front and to the taillight guards atop the rear bumpers. Factory spinner wheel covers adorn the wheels and under the hood you’ll find power steering and brakes plus an original windshield washer. A truly iconic car from the 1950’s that looks right at home today, this is a collector’s item that can be driven and enjoyed wherever you want to go. 216

Offered in two series, the entry-level Standard was a good solid reliable vehicle, but the Master Six was even better. Mounted on a chassis with a longer 120” and 128” axle-spreads, these car also featured as standard equipment a Motometer radiator mascot/temperature gauge as well as Buick branded step plates mounted on the running boards. Openair motoring was losing favor with the motoring public who were buying coupes and sedans at a record pace and out of Buick’s sales total 250,000 cars, of which a mere 2,092 units were produced. Overall, a total of 8,109 Buicks were exported that year, but those with steering wheels on the right side were very limited in numbers. The Car -This beautiful Master Six appears to have been treated to a comprehensive restoration several years back. It is finished with light tan top panels over creamy ivory side panels with black fenders while the interior has been trimmed in black leather protected by a black folding soft top. Buick always a leader in the industry was one of the first car makers to introduce an integral in-car heater, quite a leap in comfort for open-air motoring, and this car’s example is in excellent working condition.

Top of the line in this series was the Supreme convertible. Sporty, well-appointed and with plenty of power from that Rocket V8, these cars sold in record numbers. Oldsmobile styling was pretty much set in stone with family characteristics that kept customers loyal to the brand. It may have been your father’s Oldsmobile, but there was a wild side too, with the 442. However, the tame, more civilized editions are what made the Division money and with a base cost of around $3,500, a total of 10,255 1971 Cutlass Supreme convertibles went to market. The Car - What better color to order a convertible in than red, and that is exactly what the original dealership did when sending its request to the factory. Finished in Matador Red with white accents, this Cutlass Supreme is well appointed. Optional bucket seats done in white Rosewood Grain vinyl, are accented by the power operated white folding top. Under the hood you will find a Rocket V8 engine that has been upgraded with aluminum intake manual, chrome valve covers and a special air cleaner for that big four-barrel carburetor. A modern R134A Air-conditioning system has been added for those warm cruising days, and the engine compartment looks a clean as a whistle. With straight body panels and expert engineering this mighty Olds would have made your father proud and your mother too. 220 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

Complete Professional Restoration

The Model - Most everyone who is into automobiles has seen or maybe has owned a Citroen 2CV. It was a low-priced economy car for the masses designed to take country folk from point A to point B in relative safety. Known for soft suspension due to the rural roads of Europe, it actually did quite well in rallies, taking the bumps and ruts in stride and actually holding together. Looking to produce a model specific for the northern African continent, the Sahara version came to be. Tackling the problem, Citroen did was only a French car maker would do, rather than beef the suspension, or put in a bigger motor, they simply added a second engine to drive the back wheels. It was designed to cope with the worst of desert conditions such as sand storms and extreme heat. Creature comforts were typically bare minimum. The Car -Finished in Battleship Gray, is a desert dunes cruiser. Surprisingly, the interior is upholstered in a rather attractive blue-white printed fabric and actually looks like it would be quite comfortable. While its early history is obscure, we know it made its way to Mexico where it was given a full restoration, where both engines were rebuilt and then displayed as part of a prominent collection near Mexico City. This is probably one of the rarest and most unique vehicles Citroen ever assembled one that many would think had been created by an outside company. With the smooth metal look, it is in excellent condition and features a roll-back soft top for open air driving. With the second engine taking up trunk space, a spare tire is strapped to the hood. One of the most unusual cars ever presented at auction, it is the dual-engine Sahara edition of the Citroen 2CV. 222 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The half-ton versions were placed in the 3100 series and for the first time could be appointed with accessories on a par with passenger cars. While the majority of the trucks were placed into utilitarian uses, a few of these ended up in a lighter-duty role, Regardless of what task they were asked to perform these trucks were tough and today their survival is quite high considering they were hitting the market some 68 years ago. The Car - This truck was given a full cosmetic and mechanical frame-on restoration a few years ago. During the painting process all metal surfaces were stripped clean at which time any minor repairs were performed. Today it sports a beautifully chromed grille as well as front and rear chrome bumpers. Other appointments include the bed-side spare tire and beautifully finished wood flooring for the bed. Under the hood the rebuilt “six” has been authentically finished in Navy Gray. Inside the cab of this truck you’ll find the factory heater-defroster and mounted in the dashboard an original push-button AM radio, rarely seen in a pickup truck. Over the past few years light-duty commercial vehicles have been capturing the interest of more and more collectors which as seen their values constantly rising. Ahead of the pack has been Chevy’s Advanced Design pickup and this one is worthy of being a leader.

Engine: 389 cid OHV V-8 3x2 Barrel Carburetors / 360 bhp 4-Speed Manual Transmission Power-Assisted Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes Mileage: 056,480 (Showing on Odometer) The Model - Without a doubt, Pontiac’s GTO started the American Muscle Car craze when released in 1964. For 1965, things got better and faster. Featuring the styling updates of the LeMans series, which officially GTO was still considered an option package, these cars meant business and there was no mistaking a fire-breathing GTO for your parent’s grocery getter. The list of performance options grew and so did its popularity as production more than doubled the numbers from its initial year, despite the market filling rapidly with direct competition. Among the new options was a nifty 3-spoke steering wheel, center-console mounted tachometer, ungraded brakes and higher output from the little 389. Pontiac had pioneered tri-power and seemed to perfect the symphony with the GTO package. As these cars started to tear up the pavement on the streets and quarter-miles, everyone wanted muscle, but GTO was the real king, after all it was “The Great One.” 226 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M


The Car - This beautiful example finished in Montero Red with black embossed vinyl bucket seats is the ultimate for visual impact and performance too. Fitted with the triple carburetion set-up, its factory horsepower rating was pegged at 360, and maybe a few more being backed up with the 4-speed tranny. Other goodie include power brakes for swift, sure stopping power, and the vintage style air-conditioning properly blowing cold air. Another boost to power is the MSD ignition system that insures lightening quick starts. It is fitted with the optional wood-grain tri-spoke steering wheel and on the center console is the factory mounted tachometer. Wearing a full set of Rally wheels with the stainless steel trim rings it is riding on a set of red-line tires that will grip the road on the curves and provide excellent traction for take-off. Given a professional restoration, this “Goat� is one sweet ride where attention to detail was not overlooked. 227 W W W. M O T O S T A L G I A . C O M

The Car – Showing just over 16,100 mile from new, this stunning example finished in Dark Charcoal with elegant fully adjustable front bucket seats done in light tan. It has been treated to a set of lightweight five-spoke aftermarket wheels and competition style disc brakes up front. Looking inside the car the smell of new leather still emanates from the front seats and the entire passenger compartment looks showroom fresh. The factory entertainment center, including console mounted CD player, sound like the music is right in the cabin with you. This is truly a well maintained and elegant Grand Tourer that will take you back to those days that we wish would never end.

The Model –Introduced in 1992 during the 40th Anniversary of Garage Francorchamps in Belgium, it would replace the popular 412. With Pininfarina’s styling, it was an ideal tourer and brought back some of the elegant Ferrari GT cars from the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. It’s all aluminum engine was able to reach a top speed of 186 MPH it could from 0-to-60 mph in just 5.2 seconds. With a full leather interior it was well appointed including fully adjustable front seats, power windows and doors, an 8-speaker sound system, and for a short trip, room for two extra passengers in the rear seats. It marked a number of advancements for Ferrari such as the first use of an all synchromesh six-speed transaxle. Its body was compact and slippery giving the appearance of a two-seater coupe from the outside. The 456GT was a simply wonderful example of what a Grand Tourer should be.

So while Carroll Shelby was building race cars he produced with the full support of Ford, Zora Arkus-Duntov, the “father of the Corvette”, could only stand by and watch his chance to be a racing legend slowly slipped away. By 1963, Duntov’s secret program to homologate a Corvette that would compete with Carroll Shelby become public knowledge. The Grand Sport Corvette, as it would come to be known, would address Corvette’s weight problem and its ineffective brakes. The Grand Sport program would also develop a completely new power plant that would use four Weber Carburetors to fuel its small block V8 engine. Its first testing session created such a buzz in the racing world that the Chevrolet brass caught wind of the program and quickly axed the program, but not before five of the cars were built and sold. Those five racers would not be allowed to race in their intended class because the 125 units needed for homologation were not produced. They would eventually go toe to toe with the Cobras and the results were devastating to Carroll Shelby.

The Car- This tribute to the Grand Sport Corvette has all of the tell tail modifications that gave the Grand Sport its racing edge. With a refined front end, iconic fender flares, and race inspired vents, the exterior of this coupe holds true aesthetically to the original. The interior is race inspired, but still a very usable space. The seats are black leather bucket seats that mimic the feel a full race seat holding the driver tightly when the 5 point belts are buckled. The 327 under the hood is in full race tune and with exhaust routed to the side pipes, this Corvette even delivers the race car sound. Unlike many recreations this tribute was created on an original 1967 Corvette car body and chassis offering the originality of a Chevrolet with the legendary GS look and upgraded competition performance. The suspension was significantly upgraded using the top of the line Corvette competition package called Shark-Bite. While only five people can own one of the originals, this faithful recreation can be yours.
