1937 Bentley 4 1/4 Litre Sport Saloon Delivered new on December 10, 1937, this Bentley 4 ¼ Litre Sport Sport Saloon was a gift to Mrs. Helen McCann of Cumbria, England, from her parents, who believed that her then-current automobile—an Invicta low chassis tourer— was not a suitable car for a respectable married woman. Perhaps reluctant at first to give up her Invicta, Helen fell in love with the Bentley and enjoyed it for 23 years. Upon Helen’s death in 1964, the Bentley was willed to her best friend, Mrs. Glory Howard of Johnby Hall, along with her prized mink coat. Glory later sold the vehicle to Kenneth Neve in 1973, and after a series of owners, it was purchased by John Matthews of Benjamin River, Maine, in 1984. He imported it to the United States and sold it in the late 1980s to a Mr. Patys of New Bedford, Mass., who hired Bob Jefferson of Classic Sports in Brookfield, Mass., to do a high-quality rebuild of the engine and to rebuild the back axle with a highspeed ring and pinion, giving the Bentley the same ratio as the overdrive models. It was sold to the current owner in 1996. Since then, the body has been stripped to bare metal and re-sprayed with a base coat and clear finish. According to the consignor, it still cruises along nicely at 60 mph and has toured more than 30,000 miles in the past two decades without incident. This sport saloon, chassis number 168KT, features a 6-cylinder engine with overhead valves, two SU carburetors, a 4-speed gearbox, and a Thrupp & Maberly body. In addition, this elegant touring car comes with a complete tool kit in the boot lid and two continuation logbooks. Sold with a title.


1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Sedan This 1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Sedan is being consigned from the private collection of a longtime former Cadillac employee and collector of fine motorcars and top of the line boats. Fifteen years ago, this Cadillac underwent a complete restoration and to this day it is considered by the consignor to be in excellent condition. Two specific features of this particular vehicle make it extremely rare and stand out from other Series 62 Convertible Sedans. On the body code trim tag, the paint code was deleted. This means the vehicle was painted a special-ordered “private color,” a rare option for Cadillac at that time. Also, between the front and rear seats is a factory divider window, making this one of only two series 62 Convertible Sedans produced with a factory divider window, according to the consignor. Sold with a registration.

This 1952 DeSoto Custom Convertible This 1952 DeSoto Custom Convertible is currently the only 1952 DeSoto Custom Convertible listed in the National DeSoto Club roster.

1958 DeSoto Adventurer Convertible This 1958 DeSoto Adventurer convertible is an excellent example of one of the rarest and most sought-after collector cars of the 1950s. With a top speed in excess of 120 mph, the Adventurer was marketed as one of the ultimate high-performance muscle cars of Mid-Century America. A top performer on the street, this DeSoto also embodied the full range of iconic 1950s stylistic features including tail fins, bulletshaped taillights, chrome accessories and more. Production numbers for this model in 1958 were extremely low, with only 82 produced and fewer than 20 remaining today, making this Desoto Adventurer one of the rarest finds in the present collector car market. In 1992, this vehicle underwent a complete and detailed frame-off restoration. During this process, the engine and transmission were completely rebuilt, as was the entire braking system. On the exterior, the white color with gold trim was repainted to a mirror finish, and the unique goldand-white interior upholstery specific to the Adventurer series was replaced. Every aspect of this rare vehicle was restored to high standards, dedication reflected in its condition. Since its restoration, this particular Adventurer convertible has been well cared for, coming to this sale from a private collector of high-quality automobiles. Under the hood, this Desoto Adventurer convertible is powered by a 361 c.i./345 hp engine with dual 4bbl carburetors and a push button Torque Flight transmission; according to the consignor, this vehicle runs, drives and handles perfectly. Features include chrome wire wheels, power steering, power brakes, power top, push-button transmission, dual exhaust, dual rear view mirrors, dual rear antennas, safety panel dash, push-button radio, back-up lamps and a top boot. Serious automobile enthusiasts and collectors should take notice of the opportunity to purchase one of the most rare and desirable convertibles ever produced. Sold with a current registration.


1962 Ford Thunderbird Sport Roadster no RESERvE This award-winning 1962 Tri-Powered Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster, serial # 2Y89Z159493, is being offered for sale at No Reserve at the New England Auto Auction™. Only 1,427 Sports Roadsters were produced in 1962, and this one comes loaded with factory and dealer options. This Thunderbird is a well-known, award-winning vehicle with extensive documentation on its history, its victories, and its restoration. Manufactured and invoiced to Courtesy Motor Sales, Inc., on West Grand Avenue in Chicago in April 1962, this Thunderbird was trimmed out with the full package of dealer options. Although the serial number depicts a different engine code, this Sports Roadster is a true original TriPower vehicle. The “M-code” 340 hp package, which included the appropriate cylinder heads and triple carburetors, was a factory dealer option and installed at Courtesy Motors when it arrived. This is documented on the invoice and window sticker. Also included for options were the dealer-installed chrome engine package, Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels, factory fiberglass rear seat cover, and four-way electric seat. Prior to its restoration, this Thunderbird spent 19 years in the Blackhawk Collection in California. In 2003, the vehicle underwent a complete restoration, as documented by stacks of receipts and photographs. Following restoration, this vehicle won Best of Show three years in a row at the Thunderama Regional Thunderbird show hosted by the New England Vintage Thunderbird Club. Not only did it win three times in a row, it was never defeated. After this Bird’s successive wins, Thunderama changed its rules in 2007, limiting the number of times a vehicle could win Best of Show. Official notification of this rule change does come with car, as well. Properly and consistently maintained, this rare-optioned, well-documented 1962 Sports Roadster Thunderbird is a vehicle worthy of any serious collector or enthusiast. Sold with a title.

Restored to National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) Top Flight and Bloomington Gold Standards, this Corvette runs and drives just like a new 1963 vehicle with little more than 1,400 well-cared-for miles since restoration in 1990. The consignor, a fine collector of high quality exotic and sports cars, is selling this vehicle from his private collection and maintains its condition to a high standard. “Father of the Corvette” Zora Duntov and Stingray designer Larry Shinoda inspected this vehicle at the 1993 NCRS event at Cypress Gardens, Florida, and autographed the Corvette on the underside of its hood. Scoring sheets for that event indicate this car scored a 96.4 out of 100. All scoring sheets for Bloomington and NCRS events are available for inspection. Meticulous restoration records, complete with photographs and receipts, were kept during the restoration and are available for inspection.

1912 oakland Model 30 Touring This 1912 Oakland Model 30 touring car is a classic example of a Brass Era automobile.

Modifications such as an electric fuel pump and an electric starter have been added to increase its dependability and reliability for touring and driving.

We offer up approximately 200 high-quality, rare and vintage automobiles, ensuring that NEAA™, long reputed for having “something for everyone,” continues to delight bidders and spectators while exceeding expectations each year. On August 20, we will begin preparations for our 41th Annual New England Auto Auction™, striving once again to attract the greatest selection, highest quality and most diverse offering of vehicles and automobilia available. Consider consigning your vehicle or collectible piece for sale in the future by contacting Auction Coordinator Toby Stinson at 207.594.4418 or auction@ohtm.org. On behalf of the staff, volunteers and trustees, thank you for attending the 40th Annual New England Auto Auction™.
