2002 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

Click on image for more photos!

This pampered Carrera was driven less than 1100 miles a year by an avid collector and enthusiast. The triple black 911’s exterior is simply stunning and compliments the black soft top nicely. The exterior paint is deep and rich like the day it left Germany. The supple black leather is soft but firm and holds you nicely when driving. This well optioned cabriolet comes with the in dash 6 disc CD player, heated power seats, Xenons, and tiptronic paddles. The one-touch power soft top and glass window folds compactly behind the rear seats and is covered with a flush-fitting panel when lowered.

The 2002 911 had a big change in its running gear with the all new all-aluminum 3.6-liter engine. The increase that bumped displacement from 3.4 to 3.6 liters combined with the use of a revised the VarioCam Plus system borrowed from the Turbo and GT2, pushed horsepower from 300 bhp to 320.

This 911 Cab also features Tiptronic option which allows drivers to manually change transmission gears via steering wheel-mounted thumb switches. Flicking through the gears on the Cabriolet is an absolute dream. The perfect balance these cars are legendary for shines through when cornering and braking and most importantly, accelerating

The car has only had 2 owners from new and the clean Carfax documents its pampered history. If you’re looking for supercar performance in a legendary package, it’s tough to top the 911.

 

 

1965 Chevrolet Corvair Monza 2 Door Hardtop

Click on image for more photos!

The Corvair second generation arrived for model year 1965, noted for its lack of a “B” pillar and a new fully independent suspension replacing the original swing axle rear suspension. The Corvair used coil springs at each wheel.

 

The standard 95 hp (71 kW; 96 PS) and optional 110 hp (82 kW; 112 PS) engines were carried forward from 1964.  All engines got some of the heavy-duty internal parts from the Turbocharged engine for better durability.

New refinements appeared on the 1965 redesign. A much better heater system, larger brakes borrowed from the Chevelle, a stronger differential ring gear, a Delcotron alternator (replacing the generator), and significant chassis refinements were made.

This example is reported to have only 12,056 original miles and it drives, operates and looks every bit the part. The body and undercarriage are straight and rust free. It shows no signs of damage or past issues. The car was undercoated (likely at the selling dealer) and this contributed to staying rust free and adds additional sound damping to the cabin.

The paint was refreshed a couple years ago in its original white color. The brightwork excellent with the only apparent flaw being a small ding in the center of the front bumper.

The 110hp, dual carbureted Engine runs fantastic. Its quiet and smooth, delivering its power just as it did 52 years ago. The automatic Transmission shifts smoothly and operates just as it should. The ride is amazingly quiet and smooth. Driving this car will take you back in time as if you were driving this car 50+ years ago.

The doors shut properly and easily. The alignment is factory correct. The windows operate with two finger ease and fit as they should. The original, red interior is practically flawless. The instruments are bright and crisp. The carpets, door panels and rocker moldings all look new.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive nostalgic car that has great looks an innovative drive train and is beautifully preserved, this is your next collectable car.

1948 Tucker ’48, Barn Find Survivor

Click on image for more photos!

Preston Tucker and his revolutionary car took the American car market by storm. The Tucker ’48 was an overnight sensation attracting huge crowds everywhere it showed up. People rushed to buy accessories that would get them a place in line for a car. Dealers flooded Tucker with requests to buy a dealer franchise. This was no surprise when you consider the array of features that this car had. These features included:

Aluminum, opposed, 6 cylinder engine with 167hp and 390b.ft. of torque.

4 wheel independent suspension.

Torsilastic, rubber torsion bar suspension. (no springs)

4 speed manual, electric pre-select transmission.

Safety crash compartment.

Padded dash board.

Pop out safety glass windshield.

Reversible seat cushions.

Aircraft style doors cut into the roof line.

20 MPG.

Top speed of 130 mph.

Rear engine for improve traction.

Lowered, step down floor for lower center of gravity.

And the most recognized feature… the center headlight that lights your way into a turn!

Only 51 of these incredible cars were produced and today 47 still exist. The majority of them are in major museums, such as The Henry Ford Museum, The Peterson Museum and the Nethercutt Museum. Their amazing attributes along with a storied history have made these the most valuable, postwar American sedan of all time!

This particular offering is chassis #1044. It is a proper, very well preserved example with only 7,900 original miles on it. the car has spent the last 33 years locked away in a farm building. Since extracting it from its lengthy slumber, we have recommissioned it. The fuel and ignition systems have been serviced along with the brakes and all of the fluids. A new shift selector switch has been installed and the water pump and fan have been rebuilt. Lastly, 5 new, proper black wall Firestone tires were installed. Now it runs and drives great. These are amazing cars to operate and are clearly superior to their contemporaries of the time.

This car was originally Andante’ Green with a Green wool broadcloth interior. In 1972 it received new paint and a color change in addition to a fresh interior.

The condition of this car is quite remarkable. As you’ll see in the photographs, the undercarriage is completely rust free and displays its original floor pans, still painted and beautiful. The body is also rust free and incredibly clean. The paint is another story, its falling off in large areas. It appears that the 1972 repaint was deficient in proper prep. The drive train is nothing short of fantastic. It runs, drives and stops amazingly well. The lights, turn indicators and horn all work properly. The Speedometer, oil pressure gauge and volt meter work properly. In all, its pretty amazing!

Tuckers have become the most valuable post war American sedan in history. They are historically significant, mechanically fascinating and absolutely unique in style. In 2013 car #1043 sold at auction for $2,915,000.00

1967 Shelby GT350 Fastback

1967 Shelby GT350 Fastback

VIN: 02126

A Brief History:

 

The first ever Mustangs were released by Ford on April 17, 1964. Ford anticipated selling around 100,000 models that year, but wound up selling over 400,000 combined coupes, convertibles, and fastbacks. Despite the car’s apparent popularity, most gearheads were unimpressed. Even though Ford had worked hard to disassociate the Mustang with the Ford Falcon, most buyers realized that the Mustang body was placed on top of a Falcon suspension and chassis. Without the promised performance, the Mustang was becoming a “secretary’s car,” something bought to look sporty but not actually driven in a sporty fashion. Following the release of what was deemed the first ever muscle car, the Pontiac GTO, the Mustang was fast losing popularity.

 

In desperate need of help, Ford paired up with Carroll Shelby, a well-respected and decorated race car driver through the 1950s. Shelby wanted nothing more than to build his own race cars, and had reached out to several manufacturers about using their V8 engines in a car of his own making. He was rejected by both Chevrolet and Austin-Healey, as they were afraid his creation would defeat their models in the races, which it eventually did. Ford, on the other hand, saw an excellent opportunity to team up with one of the most brilliant minds in the racing industry and immediately sent two 221cid V8s to his facility in California.

 

Shelby had already arranged to use chassis from a place called AC Car Company in England, so he sent the Ford engines to his facility to be bored out to 260cid and fitted to the chassis. The first test car, the CSX-2000, was sent back to California and immediately thrown into street races. It was virtually unbeatable, and later christened the Shelby Cobra, the pride of the Shelby Racing Program. To repay the favor to Ford, Shelby agreed to take on the task of making the Mustang fit to race in the 1965 SCCA season, and dramatically overhaul the Mustang’s public image.

 

After speaking with the director of the SCCA, Shelby determined the areas in which the Mustang needed modifications to qualify for the 1965 season. He successfully removed the back seats, increased the horsepower to 300, and upgraded the suspensions on 100 Mustangs, all within the window of just five months, and just in the nick of time for the January 1, 1965 judgement day. The result of his effort, the Shelby Mustang GT350, was so wildly popular amongst muscle car enthusiasts that Ford immediately put an order in to have them mass produced for the public. For the 1967 model year only 1,175 GT350s were produced, including VIN 02126.

 

The Automobile Offered:

 

Over the years, the Shelby moniker has become widely recognized as one of the most important muscle car manufacturers of the 1960s. The GT350, with its low production numbers and unparalleled SCCA success, is one of the most sought after collector cars in the industry.

 

This particular GT350 was built in the San Jose production facility for Collingwood Motor Sales Inc in Findlay, Ohio. It was released on April 26, 1967, with a 289cid Hi-Performance engine, a C-4 automatic transmission, black leather interior, and Lime Gold paint. Its engine is identified with the proper 289cid code of C5AE-6015E and the casting date of 7D4, both sequentially correct for a match. It underwent a rotisserie restoration by its previous owner and was finished about eight years ago in the classic Wimbledon White scheme. It maintains its original drivetrain and equipment options, including a shoulder harness, the extra cooling package, the courtesy light group, the sport deck rear seat, power disc brakes, power steering, interior decor, a heavy duty battery, and the tachometer and trip odometer. Only 343 examples were produced with the equipment and configuration of this car, making it extremely rare.

 

Its ownership has consisted of just 2 people for the past 40 years or so, and has had just one owner since 1989, until his passing in 2016. The car is also accompanied by a copy of the original production order, the two previous owners’ information, a copy of the 1989 title, and a Marti Report Elite, dated in 2016. It is a stunning, well-equipped example of an American classic.

1972 Ford Mustang Mach 1, Custom SEMA Promotion for AMSOIL

Click on image for more photos!

For 2016 Amsoil decided to build a very special muscle car to commemorate their 44 years in business. They wanted a true muscle car from 1972 (the year they started in business), so they selected the legendary Ford Mach 1 Mustang. This car had to be really special so they contracted Gizmos Hot Rods out of Minnesota to build and modify the car.

Here is what they did:

– High Performance 351 V8
Rebuilt the stock 351 Cleveland with a myriad of special, performance components. The result was 437 HP and 428 Lb/Ft of Torque. This gives it great performance and with a 10:1 compression ratio, it can run on standard pump gas.

– Special 4 wheel disc brakes
Wilwood brakes and related components were installed. This included 4 piston calipers with drilled and slotted rotors on all four corners. They also used the special Wilwood master cylinder and accessories to be sure that car would stop on a dime.

– Afco Suspension Components
Handling has come a long way in 44 years. Afco upgraded components were added to both the front and rear to help the driver feel comfortable and safe. These upgrades also allow for better handling at higher speeds.

– Fuel System upgrades
A completely fresh fuel delivery system including a special electric fuel pump has been installed. This will be sure to provide the engine with a reliable and ample stream of fuel.

– Rear Gear and Posi
With a fresh set of gears and locking positraction unit, the Mustang can lay down rubber properly. It will also improve the traction and handling on any road.

– Headers and hand built stainless steel exhaust
The entire exhaust was custom engineered to maximize performance and sound great. They TIG welded and ceramic coated the entire system. It looks amazing.

– Shelby Wheels and Cooper Tires
The addition of Shelby aluminum wheels with low profile Cooper tires give it a great look while delivering superior road holding performance.

Additional special features include:
– Custom paint and stripes
– Functional Ram Air Hood
– Air conditioning
– Tilt steering wheel
– Power Steering
– Automatic Transmission
– Aluminum finned valve covers
– AMSOIL fluids and lubricants

A series of videos were produced that show the build of this car. Here is a link for you to view them:

The car was awarded to the lucky sweepstakes winner at the SEMA show in 2016. Due to various circumstances, the award winner cannot keep the car, so its available to you.

1967 Jaguar XKE Coupe, Series 1

Click on image for more photos!

The series 1 XKE Jaguar is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cars of all time. The flowing lines and exceptional proportions give it a fantastic aesthetic. They exhibit excellent performance and handling derived from their D- Type racing heritage.
The Series 1 cars, which are by far the most valuable, essentially fall into two categories: Those made between 1961 and 1964, which had 3.8 litre engines and non-synchromesh transmissions, and those made between 1965-1967, which increased engine size and torque by around 10%, added a fully synchronised transmission, and also provided new reclining seats.  “The 4.2 became the most desirable version of the famous E-Type due to their increased power and usability while retaining the same outward appearance as the earlier cars.”

This example was delivered new to Ontario Canada. Its second owner brought it to the USA and repainted the car in its original color of British Racing Green. The car has had only 3 owners since new and retains its original, numbers matching engine, cylinder head and drive train. The odometer shows 58,331 miles and it is believed to be correct.

The engine runs smooth with plenty of power and a great sound. The transmission shifts smoothly and has recently received a new clutch. The carburetors have been rebuilt and polished and work superbly.  The bumpers have been rechromed and look like new. The wire wheels are also fresh along with the steel belted radial tires.

The paint and body present as a very good driver. Age and use over the past 18 years since it was painted, hasn’t detracted from its great look but it no longer looks fresh.

The  interior is magnificent. It has been expertly restored and looks showroom new.  The steering wheel has also been thoroughly restored and is exceptional. The tool roll, spare tire, books and records are all present.

Enjoy the look, performance and feel of the classic, series 1 XKE coupe with this great example.

1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Imperial Landaulet

Click on image for more photos!

1924 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Imperial Landaulet
Chassis: 655 Engine: 664

A Brief History:

In 1898, Italy’s most famous make of luxury car began through the partnership of Cesare Isotta, a lawyer, and Vincenzo Fraschini, a noted car enthusiast. The two entered a into a business together to import Renault and De Dion-Bouton cars and Aster engines into Italy. In 1900, they released the first car bearing their name sake, a small 2-seater similar in concept to a Renault, but bearing a 5hp Aster engine. After approximately five years of creating increasingly more powerful automobiles, the company hired Giustino Cattaneo as its chief designer in 1905, the man responsible for the design and development of all Isotta Fraschinis through 1933.

Between 1905 and 1914, Isotta Fraschini marketed approximately fifty different models, thanks to the brilliance of Cattaneo. However, the first World War lead to a distinct decline in production, as was the case with many other European manufacturers. Afterwards, with severely depleted funds, Cattaneo created the postwar policy of focusing solely on one model, a luxury vehicle designed to compete with the best that Britain, France, and America had to offer. The result of this effort was the spectacular Tipo 8, released in 1919. It featured an in-line 8-cylinder engine, the first of its kind to be put into series production anywhere in the world.

The Tipo 8A was introduced in 1924 with increased engine size and power, as Cattaneo was attempting to counter criticism that an Isotta was easily outperformed by a Hispano-Suiza. The new engine had a capacity of 7370cc giving 110hp. As Cattaneo had so hoped, the Tipo 8A was one of the most sought after, and therefore priciest models available on the European and American markets. In fact, about one-third of the 1,380 Tipo 8s, 8As, and 8Bs built in the production run were sold in the United States. The chassis started at $9,750, and coach built models retailed for upwards of $20,000 as of 1924, even more expensive than the Duesenberg Model J.

Though Isotta Fraschinis were reveled and highly sought after in the early 1920s, by the end of the decade the Great Depression led to the loss of the US as a viable marketplace. In 1931, Cattaneo released the upgraded Tipo 8B in an attempt to draw American interest back into the company. Magnificent though it was, the car was simply released at the wrong time, and only 30 were sold. The last 8B was completed in 1935, and the remainder of the factory components scrapped. After Cattaneo retired in 1935, the company came under new ownership through World War II. Starved of funds by an unsympathetic Italian government, Isotta Fraschini was liquidated in September 1948.

The Golden Years:

During the pique of its sales, the Tipo 8A automobiles were owned by the upper echelon of both the European and American societies. Adjusted for inflation, an Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A would cost roughly $280,000 today, more than a great deal of supercars on the market. This was due largely in part to the fact that Tipo 8As were only available for purchase from the factory as chassis, thus requiring the owners to send them to wildly expensive coach builders.

For example, the Maharajah of Patiala spent 7,000 pounds Sterling to have the coachmaker Windowers equip his 8A with Saloon coachwork and a camouflage-painted body, as it was only used for hunting. Baroness Maria Antonietta Avanzo, the famed female Bugatti race car driver, had a coupe-spider crafted specially for her directly from the factory. Other owners included Pope Pius XI, who receive his Tipo 8B as a gift from the people of Milan, Prince Luigi Grimaldi of Monte Carlo, the Empress of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa, the Queen of Romania, the King of Italy, Aga Khan, Benito Mussolini, and a host of other European and Middle Eastern kings and princes.

In the United States, Tipo 8s and 8As were owned by many famous celebrities, such as Rudolph Valentino and the “It Girl” Clara Bow, the world heavyweight boxing champion Jack Dempsey, and newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, the real-life inspiration for Orson Wells’ Citizen Kane. Clearly, the company’s claim that it produced “the Aristocrat of Automobiles” was no joke. As each of the Tipo 8s and 8As had custom coachwork, no two models were ever the same, further reinforcing the air of complete luxury and indulgence for which Cattaneo strived.

The Automobile Offered:

The Tipo 8A was, without a doubt, one of the world’s most prestigious automobiles: they served to represent power and wealth. This particular 8A, chassis 655, appeared to remain with the factory from new. According to Angelo Titto Anselmi, the car was sold to Filippo Bolzari of Milan but it is unknown whether the car was ever actually delivered to him, as there are no viable records citing delivery. Though very little is known about its purported original owner, the car appeared to remain with the factory throughout its history. It was kept in the basement of a warehouse off site from the factory. This remote location is believed to be responsible for it surviving destruction along with the factory during WWII.

Chassis 655 had its coachwork done by Cesare Sala, one of Italy’s premiere coachbuilders. Sala, together with Carrozzeria Castagna, did the coachwork for more 8As than any other firm at the time. This is in part due to the fact that Carrozzeria Sala, the predecessor to Sala and Castagna, had a board of directors containing Oreste Fraschini, brother to Vincenzo.

The car had additional coachwork updates performed by Carrozzeria Riva. They added solid sidemount covers and special woodwork around 1926. The secondary coach tag found directly underneath original Cesare Sala tag is further evidence of Riva’s contribution. Furthermore, this is the only Isotta Fraschini that had 2 coach builders in its construction. According to The Isotta-Fraschini Society, from whom we have a signed letter of authentication, the coachwork on this chassis was likely assembled in January of 1924, making this the earliest known Type 8A and possibly the first example built. This along with needing and example to demonstrate may have been the reasons for Isotta Fraschini keeping this car in their ownership.

In 1993, the Isotta-Fraschini name was revived by coachbuilders Fissore in partnership with Audi. They eventually sold the namesake to Finmeccanica, an Italian company active in the areas of defense, aerospace, and security, wherein chassis 655 was discovered hidden away at an old Isotta-Fraschini-owned location. Its current owner purchased it directly from Finmeccanica and had it imported to the United States for the first time in its life in July of 2016, 92 years after its creation. Finmeccanica told the current owner that the car was produced in 1924 as a demonstration chassis for the factory. As these cars were designed to be driven by chauffeurs, Isotta-Fraschini held training sessions for future drivers, and used this particular chassis as the sample. It also gave them a complete, coach built example to demonstrate for prospective customers.

The rarity of this automobile, in combination with its completely original and untouched appearance, make it a very valuable and sought after addition to only the most prestigious of pre-World War II collections. It is absolutely unique and, according to The Isotta-Fraschini Society, the earliest known surviving Tipo 8A in existence.

This Isotta-Fraschini comes with a binder of documentation, including the Bill of Sale between Isotta-Fraschini and Finmeccanica, as well as the Bill of Sale between Finmecanica and the current owner. The binder also contains The Isotta-Fraschini Society Certificate of Authentication and its accompanying list of known Tipo 8s, 8As, and 8Bs. Finally, there are photocopies of the pages within Isotta Fraschini where chassis 655 is mentioned and photographed (pages 92 and 336).

The undercarriage has been completely refinished and presents properly with the black floor pans as they were finished by the Van Nuys, California assembly plant. There were 3 small deviations made during the restoration from 100% factory stock. The exhaust manifolds were porcelain coated, the exhaust pipes are slightly larger than stock diameter with a better flowing muffler and the tires are steel belted radials with a wider stance.

The documentation includes a Pontiac Historical Society package with build sheet, the original protect-o-plate, an owners manual and complete receipts for the restoration.

Only 1339 examples of this rare and desirable muscle car were produced with the automatic transmission.

1964 Facel Vega Facel II

Click on image for more photos!

Facel Vega was the last French Sports and Luxury car manufacturer in history, celebrated as the challenger of no less than Maserati, Ferrari and Aston Martin.

Successor of the mythical Bentley Continental R for luxury, speed and prestige, the Facel Vega HK2 was the epitome of wealth, elegance and power… Probably the most exclusive and costly Gran Tourismo of the sixties, it was the automobile of the happy few.

With over 250 km/h and a timeless, breathtaking beauty, the Facel II was the automobile of the elite: Stirling Moss, Frank Sinatra, Maurice Trintignant, the Shah of Iran, the King of Morocco, Prince Saoud of Arabia, Prince Charles of Belgium, the President of Mexico, Joan Collins, Tony Curtis, Anthony Quinn, Ringo Starr, Ava Gardner and Pablo Picasso all drove Facel Vegas.

Comparable to the contemporary Ferrari 500 Superfast, Aston Martin DB5 or Maserati 5000 GT for fascinating beauty, speed and prestige.

This incredible example exemplifies the characteristics of the best in breed. It is one of approximately 13 examples built with the 6.7L Chrysler high deck (RB) V8, dual 4 barrel carburetors and 4 speed Pont a Mousson manual transmission. This extraordinary power plant delivers an astonishing 390 BHP, making it one of the top performers of its time. Additional features include: Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Dual Power Radio Antenna and Borrani wire wheels.

The car has benefited from a comprehensive and meticulous restoration commissioned by it current, long term owner. Presented in a rich Cabernet metallic exterior with a Cream Beige leather interior, the combination is stunning. The body panels are straight and flat with beautiful symmetry at the gaps. The chrome is gleaming and bright.

Mechanically, the car is outstanding. It runs very strong and smooth as evidence of being properly reconditioned and sorted. It has a throaty rumble appropriate of its muscular engine. This provides and interesting contrast to the exceptionally refined and luxurious interior and appointments. The aircraft inspired dashboard is beautiful and houses an array of properly functioning gages and instruments. It is indeed a wonderful automobile.

This is definitely one of the finest HK2s in existence.

One-off 1947 Bentley Mark VI Cabriolet, bodied by Franay

Featured at the 1947 Paris Auto Show.

This amazing automobile exhibits unparalleled design elements. From its flowing, sculptured body with chrome accents to its extraordinary interior featuring Frog hide. No detail was over looked. Separate compartments house a variety of glasses and silver based stemware, compartments for drinking flasks and crystal decanters, specialty tools, light bulbs and of course the specialized jack. There is a custom Franay suit case in a fitted compartment. A jump seat, also adorned with Frog hide is behind the front seat and folds neatly away. There is even a pair of matching ladies shoes and hand bag crafted from the matching Frog hide. It has a 3 position folding convertible top with twin, beveled, oval rear windows. And the list goes on from there…

This is the first major winning Concours d’Elegance car after WWII.
Winning the first two major Concours in 1948, back-to-back, on the 12th of June at Enghien and the 17th of June at Bois de Bolougne.
Mr. Gudol, the original owner and visionary of the Franay, was an industrialist whose sole purpose was to prove to the world that France was not only back from the rigors of war, but ready to reassert its dominance of haute couture and automotive design elegance.
The awards the Franay has won over the decades is proof of his timeless vision.

Universally recognized as the most successful and expensive post war Bentley/Rolls-Royce automobile of all time, with the Concours and auction record to prove it. With over 50 show wins and honors it has earned its place in the record books. In August of 1991 at the Rolls-Royce National Meet the Bentley Franay was judged by its peers as “Best of Show” among all competing Rolls-Royce and Bentley automobiles from around the world. Then again in August of 1999 at the Rolls-Royce National Meet held at Dana Point, Calif. it again proved to the world that it was the best by winning the most coveted award that the RROC (Rolls-Royce Owners Club) could bestow, the Royce Memorial Trophy and top senior award “Best of Prior Best of Show.” It is also worthy to note that the Bentley Franay, in June of 1995 was awarded “Best of Show” at Hurlingham, England Concours D’Elegance, England’s equivalent of our Pebble Beach. It also received the “Spectator Trophy,” the “People’s Choice” and most popular car in the show.

The Bentley Franay is so special that The Franklin Mint crafted a special model to commemorate this one of a kind automobile.

1930 Duesenberg Murphy Bodied Towncar

Click on image for more photos!

Duesenberg, one of the most incredible automobiles ever built. Favored by Hollywood elite and captains of industry, these automobiles are the embodiment of style, class and performance.

J-381 began life in 1929 as a long wheelbase chassis at the Indianapolis Duesenberg factory and was then shipped to the New York factory branch showroom and entered into inventory.

The rolling chassis was purchased by Nanaline Duke, widow of American Tobacco Company founder J.B. Duke, and was noted for a spectacular gem collection.

Mrs. Duke shipped the chassis to Murphy of Pasadena to receive this magnificent Town Car coachwork. The Walter M. Murphy Company would build a total of four Town Car bodies for Duesenberg, the most of any single coachbuilder.

Duke retained J-381 for only a short period before selling it off, as was common with most high end cars of the era. Several owners later, Judge Pat Ferchill acquired the car for his collection in 1958 and it then passed from his estate in unrestored, factory original condition. In 1985 Bill and Aniece Lassiter purchases the car and commissioned a total frame off Concours quality restoration.

It is believed that this is one of only 2 examples to survive. Its stately presence is unmatched.

The Engine, Chassis and Body are ALL original to this car.

A complete mechanical service has just been completed by the marque specialist Brian Joseph. The result of this is a fantastic running and driving example that performs as a Duesenberg should with strong acceleration, sure braking and precise steering.

Although the restoration was completed many years ago, the car presents beautifully. The paint combination is stunning, it shines and gleams as does the chrome. Clearly, this car demonstrates how a very well cared for classic can pass the years with only minor evidence of the time passed.

 

1930 Chevrolet 2 Door Sedan “Barn Find”

Click on image for more photos!

This is a true Barn Find. The 1930 Chevrolet featured here was recently recovered from its 35 year resting place. It is in a remarkable state of preservation. The car is virtually rust free and remains in it factory, stock livery. Its amazing to see the original wooden floor planks with the body number stamped in it.

The 6 cylinder engine appears completely stock and turns over easily. We have made no attempt to get it running. We will leave that enjoyment to the new owner. The transmission clicks positively into each gear. The dashboard is outfitted will all of its original gages and they present quite nicely. The mechanical brakes still work as does the clutch pedal.

The body is in great condition. The doors close properly with a positive click and even the windows crank up and down. The underside and chassis is equally well preserved with no signs of damage or severe rust. Only traces of minor scale in isolated places are evidence of its lengthy hibernation. The paint on front splash pan has lifted and some minor surface rust has appeared.

The interior upholstery is in good condition and is serviceable. Even the door panels have a nice appearance.

This is a great opportunity to acquire a very clean, complete and highly original example to recommission and enjoy or modify to your taste.

THE HATCH PACKARD

Once a year in the late 1930s and early 1940s, the heady days before the war, a sleek one-of-a-kind formal Packard traveled down the two-lane highways of the East Coast, descending from north to south. At the wheel was a liveried chauffeur, Walter Bibby, who wore his impeccable black uniform from the time the car left the gates of 38 Roxborough Drive, Toronto, until reaching his employer’s winter home in Palm Beach, Florida. He would then change into more appropriate livery for the Florida coast—cream linen—and collect his employers at the rail station. Harry C. Hatch and family had arrived in Palm Beach flush with the wealth that had come from leading the Hiram Walker distillery through Prohibition. Vacation could now commence.

A passionate breeder of racehorses, Mr. Hatch was not necessarily a “car guy” but was most certainly a connoisseur, whose good taste showed in his selection of a “senior” Packard, the 139-inch-wheelbase 1605 Super Eight. He had the chassis shipped for coachwork to London coachbuilders Barker, the favorite of royalty, which built a formal Sedanca deVille with the “razor edge” roofline and “turtledeck” rear-end styling distinctive of their Rolls-Royce designs. In fact, aside from the typical Packard grille and fenders, it would have been easy to mistake the Hatch Packard for a Rolls!

As Hatch’s son Clifford recalled later, his father had business in England, including importing Scotch, which likely resulted in a visit to Barker during one of his overseas trips. Barker’s original sketch of what is believed to be this car, but without side-mounted spares, appears on page 204 of Hugo Pfau’s The Coach-Built Packard.

The car was apparently sold by the Hatches around World War II and, in 1961, was sold by a Toronto dealer to longtime enthusiasts George and Sheila Van Nostrand, of Keswick, Ontario, who kept it for several years in good original condition. It was purchased by Ed Suddarth in 1986 after several documented intervening owners, and he completed its restoration and displayed the car at the 1989 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, winning a class award.

The Packard was acquired in 1990 by Richard Livoni, of Long Beach, California, who continued to show it for many years, achieving CCCA Senior number 1761 with 99 points in 1993 and numerous First Place and Best in Class awards at West Coast concours d’elegance. In Mr. Livoni’s care, the car appeared in an article by Dennis Adler in the May 1993 issue of Car Collector, as well as in Dennis Adler’s books Packard and Speed and Luxury: The Great Cars.

The present owner, a respected American collector has maintained it to an extremely high standard and has a wonderful collection of fascinating documentation, interviews with Hatch family members, and copies of articles featuring the car, which accompany it today. It has continued to return to Pebble Beach on occasion, most recently in 2009, and is as striking today as when Mr. Hatch’s chauffeur first drove it in Toronto. The correct black paint is rich and lustrous, while the interior is swathed with Connolly leather for the driver and soft broadcloth for the passengers. The rear compartment boasts twin lighted vanities, an intercom, a unique power-operated rear window shade, and—but of course—a built-in bar.

1949 MGTC Roadster

Click on image for more photos!

This is a Fabulous Example of an extremely rare MGTC (EXU).
ABOUT THE EXU MODEL

Feedback from the important American market led MG to develop this special model for sale to the U.S. Beginning with car number 7380 in December 1948 and produced “as needed” throughout 1949 only 494 were produced — less than 5% of all MG TC production.

Such cars were recognized under the coding “EXU” (for export unit) and stamped “EXU” on the chassis number on the guarantee plate.

In addition, they included the following improvements:

–  Full-width bumpers, front and rear (allegedly for the way “women parked in the United States!”).

–  Central MG medallion on rear bumper (some suggest one of the rarest items of any MG, since the medallion was only installed on the 494 EXU units).

–  Two Lucas Windtone horns mounted under the bonnet instead of the badge bar. (Because of the harsh U.S. winters)

–  Steering wheel in gold pearl finish instead of black.

–  Rear number-plate mounted centrally above the rear bumper with Lucas number/license plate lamps above it.

–  Lucas type S.700 headlamps.

–  Lucas type 482-1 stop and tail lamps mounted on each side at the top of the petrol tank.

–  Laminated (versus toughened) windshield glass.

–  Badge bar, fog lamp and external horn deleted.

–  No”Thirtilite,” but two map reading lamps.

–  Rear-view mirror above dashboard.

–  Flashing directional indicator (turn signal) switch with built-in warning lamp in place of inspection lamp socket.

–  High-beam warning lamp (versus fog lamp switch).

–  Instrument panel rearranged:
Ammeter and oil gauge mounted in center
Ignition and lighting switch on the outside left
Horn push and dip switch on right.
This particular example has been lovingly restored by its owner of 42 years. Although the car was restored many years ago, it presents as fresh as if the work was completed only a few years ago. The car has only traveled 372 miles since the completion of the restoration. It runs and drives as new. It starts instantly, idles smooth and quiet, accelerates as it should (these are not rocket ships), shifts effortlessly and sounds great!

The paint finish is bright and shiny. The underside is as beautiful as the top side. The finishes of both paint and powder coat look fantastic and the stainless steel exhaust gleams.

The convertible top is in excellent condition, but shows a minor amount of soiling at the bows. The full set of side curtains are in fantastic condition as is the top boot.

The chrome is bright and shiny.

Even the LOW FUEL light on the instrument panel works correctly.

This car was shown and won its class at the prestigious Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance.

Unfortunately, the original air cleaner has been misplaced and therefore, the car is being sold without it (unless we locate it before the end of the sale).

This is a rare opportunity to own a truly great example of a rare and desirable classic.

This is an exceptional example of a rare 1967 L71 427/435hp Convertible Corvette. Completely disassembled for a body-off, no-expense-spared restoration of a superb car. Supervision of the restoration was performed by an NCRS Master Judge. All parts used were either original or NOS factory parts. There is full photo documentation of the entire restoration. It was Bloomington Gold Certified ’05, Gold Spinner Award in ’05 and won a coveted Best American Performance Car Award at the 2006 Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, a national event held annually in Greenwich, CT. The car has been judged and graded as exceptional. This highly optioned ’67 Corvette is finished in Goodwood Green with Saddle vinyl interior, white convertible top with a white stinger.

The car is fully dialed in so it performs as impressively as it looks.

1967 Chevrolet Corvette L89 Coupe

Click on image for more photos!

In 1967 Chevrolet built a street monster with its 427ci Corvette. The most powerful of which was the Tri Power equipped 435hp version. These were legendary on the street for their raw power and performance. Chevrolet took it even further by producing 16 very special cars that had this engine configuration plus the weight advantage of aluminum cylinder heads. Those were identified as the L89. The fantastic example offered here has the ominous L89 engine and presents as a proper and beautiful example. We have extensive photographs of the concours quality restoration that was completed in 2006. Since this car is without factory documentation, there is no definitive way to prove its originality. Even though the numbers match and the castings are correct, we can not trace its origins. As a result, this car is priced at about 50% of what a documented L89 would sell for (if you could ever find one). Enjoy all the performance and exclusivity at half the price. Contact us for full details!
