1993 Nissan 300ZX

Lot # 2 (Sale Order: 1 of 60)      

3-litre 24-valve V-6 engine rated at 222 HP, four-speed automatic transmission, front unequal-length control arms with additional articulating hub and mufti-link rear sus...morepension, four-wheel ventilated disc brakes with four-piston front calipers; wheelbase: As the Auburn Automobile Company's last activities came to a close, a group of enthusiasts thought it was time to share the rich and vibrant history of this great car company. Soon the annual ACD Festival held every year become one of the largest car collector events in the world. Among the traditions of the ACD Festival is the award-winning artwork of John Souder. Souder created the first 37 posters for the annual Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival that celebrated the cars built by the Auburn Automobile Company. Souder's incredible eye for detail and artistic prose was a rare talent that very few possess. Indeed, his posters are now collectible treasures and his artwork appeared on T-shirts, bumper stickers, badges, flags and collector plates, all promoting the festival that he loved so much and became an integral part of. Sadly, John Souder passed away in October of 2018. His 1993 Nissan 300ZX is now being offered with all proceeds going to the festival. It is certainly fitting that a man of Souder's talent would select a brilliant red 300ZX for one of his methods of transportation. The smooth lines of the 300ZX are certainly something that would appeal to an artist and, with a powerful V-6 under the hood, it's a car that is as fast as it looks. The Souder car features a gray interior with power seats in a driver's environment that can only be described as the modern interpretation of the Grand Touring experience. This is an incredibly well-cared-for car that even retains the storage bags for the T-tops. The engine bay is clean and tidy while carrying the look as a powerful engine. Overall, this 300ZX is an incredibly preserved time capsule that can be driven with complete reliability. The sale of this 300ZX represents a wonderful opportunity to own a great car that honors a great man, for a great cause.

1940 Buick Special Series 40 Business Coupe

Lot # 3 (Sale Order: 2 of 60)      

248 cid OHV inline eight-cylinder engine, 107 HP, three-speed column shift manual transmission, front independent suspension, live rear axle, four-wheel drum brakes; whee...morelbase: 121" For the 1940 model year, Buick marketed its entire lineup as new and improved. One inch was added to the wheelbase of Buick's Series 40 Special, allowing both dual side mounts and fully openable doors at the same time. Headlamps were incorporated into the front fenders and horizontal grille bars gave the car a more dominant look. Small but significant mechanical changes improved the car's overall operation. A new dual-diaphragm fuel pump, for example, improved windshield wiper function greatly. The eight-cylinder Dynaflash engine operated quietly thanks to rubber frame-mount shims and aluminum rockers. Riding on a solid I-beam frame consisting of all-steel construction and front/rear stabilizer bars further guaranteed a smooth, safe feeling ride to the driver and passengers. Though considered Buick's entry level full-size car, the Series 40 Special easily met the expectations for drivability and responsiveness that consumers desired. Offered from The Roaring Twenties Museum Collection is this charming 1940 Buick Special Series 40 Business Coupe. Single tone black paint, molded trim, and rear fender skirts combine to create the quintessential streamlined look of the pre-war gentleman's car. The seats and door panels feature a combination of Bedford cloth and mohair upholstery which goes great with the brown dashboard and polished steel instrumentation. Of course, Buick's four-wheel hydraulic brakes and a three-speed column-shifter make stopping and going seem almost effortless. Cruising in comfort and good company is as easy as turning the key, thanks to the Special's powerful eight-cylinder motor and heavily padded seating. With that dashing wind-swept exterior design, this car is sure to make a big hit at any weekend car show. With some simple routine maintenance and a good cleaning, this Buick will provide countless more years of enjoyment to its new owner. Arguably Buick's Special Eight was one of the most well-designed cars of its period. In one instance, actress Ann Blyth, who played Mildred's daughter in the movie Mildred Pierce, was given a 1940 Buick Special Eight as a gift. The actress was supposedly so pleased with her car that she became a customer-for-life. Don't miss this chance to own this terrific piece of pre-war Buick history.

1981 Avanti II

Lot # 4 (Sale Order: 3 of 60)      

305 cid V-8 engine rated at 150 HP, four-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs and stabilizer front suspension, rear semi-elliptic ...moreleaf springs with solid axle, hydraulic front disc and rear drum brakes; wheelbase: 109". The Studebaker Avanti was radical in styling from anything on the road when it was introduced in 1962 to an eager public. Sculpted by the famed industrial designer Raymond Loewy and his crew of stylists, in the heat of Palm Springs, California, the Avanti's mid-20th century styling was polarizing, but thoroughly modern. The Avanti was essentially a hand-built grand touring car. Studebaker was plagued with financial problems and fewer than 4,700 Avanti's were manufactured before production ceased. In 1964, as the Studebaker Corporation exited the auto business, former Studebaker dealers Leo Newman and Nate Altman picked up the Avanti torch. Newman and Altman bought part of the original Studebaker plant, and had access to Studebaker's molds, tooling and prior development work, along with many chassis and body parts. The duo created the Avanti Motor Corporation and began producing the Avanti II starting in 1965. During Newman and Altman's ownership, the Avanti II was continually improved and refined. Through their relationship with Chevrolet they were able to procure performance engines and durable drivetrains. This single owner Avanti survives today with its original fiberglass body and chassis. Under the hood, the original Chevrolet 305 cubic-inch V-8 is correct and is mated to a GM four-speed automatic transmission. The brake system has been rebuilt with DOT 5 silicone fluid for long-lasting stopping power. This also includes upgraded front brakes with GM calipers and rotors. Inside, it's all original as well, with well-bolstered bucket seats up front, and room for three in the back. The padded dash features a burled woodgrain front face with speedometer, tachometer, water temperature, oil pressure, and a vacuum gauge. The factory sunroof is an added feature for touring enjoyment. With fewer than 200 units produced for 1982, this Avanti II is exclusive. With renewed care and attention by an astute owner and donated for auction to support the Studebaker National Museum, this performance auto will garner admiration for years to come.

1953 Ford Golden Jubillee Tractor

Lot # 5 (Sale Order: 4 of 60)      

SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY 134 cid inline four-cylinder engine, 32 HP, four-speed manual gearbox, drum brakes; wheelbase: 74". The Ford NAA is a rare and desirable trac...moretor that was introduced by Ford as an entirely new model in 1953 and dubbed the Golden Jubilee as part of their 50th year anniversary celebration. The NAA designation was a reference to the first three digits of the serial number style used starting with this tractor. It was designed as a replacement for the Ford N-Series tractors. Larger than the 8N, the Golden Jubilee featured live hydraulics, 50th year Golden Jubilee badging, and an overhead-valve "Red Tiger" four-cylinder engine and streamlined styling. It was the first tractor Ford built after losing its court battle with Harry Ferguson in 1952 over the patents the Irish inventor held on the Ferguson System three-point hitch. This example was restored by noted enthusiasts Ron Thorne around 2005, and presents as if it was recently done. Finished in Ferrari Red and gray it has won several national awards and has been exhibited at tractor events only since restoration. It has resided in a careful and fastidious collection since and is ready to be used, shown and enjoyed.

1953 Ford Golden Jubilee Tractor

Lot # 6 (Sale Order: 5 of 60)      

SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine, 32 HP, four-speed gearbox, drum brakes; wheelbase: 74". Ford produced the "Golden Jubilee" to celebrate its...more 50th anniversary. This tractor was only released in 1953 and 1954, succeeding the Ford 8N, and just 128,965 models were built. Made in the Highland Park, Michigan factory, this tractor had a special badge on its nose that commemorated the anniversary. Upon release, it cost $1,560. This tractor comes out of a noted collection and features a liquid cooled four-cylinder engine with eight valves and weighs in at 2,800 pounds. Slightly longer and heavier than the 8N, it produces 32 HP. This lovely example has just 1,300 original hours of operation and sports a very correct repaint with no damage or signs of wear. Our consignor reports that it runs and drives like new and, while he used it for farm shows and tractor events, it would be fully capable of hitching your double-bottom plow to the three-point hitch and plowing any field you choose.

1931 Willys Six C-113 Pickup

Lot # 7 (Sale Order: 6 of 60)      

193 cid inline six-cylinder engine, 65 HP, three-speed manual transmission with single reverse gear, electric starter, manual choke; wheelbase: 113" The Willys-Overland...more Motor Company was created in 1908 when John Willys purchased the Standard Wheel Company's Overland Automotive Division. He further expanded the company in 1913 after acquiring the license to build Charles Knight's sleeve-valve engine, thus giving birth to the Willys-Knight nameplate. In 1926, Willys-Overland introduced a line of small cars called the Whippet. Largely successful but hampered by the stagnant economy of the depression, the Whippet ceased production in 1931. Unbeknownst to many, the Whippet had a very low production, distant cousin; The Willys Six C-113 Truck. This all original Willys Six C-113 Truck, offered from The Roaring Twenties Museum Collection, is number 113 of just 198 made. Referred to in sales documentation as a Cloned Cab Pickup, the Six Trucks were marketed as speedy transportation with a comfortable deluxe cab that offered plenty of room. It does not take a lot to notice that this truck strongly resembles the Whippet in more than a few ways. Not surprisingly, both the Whippet and the C-113 were Murray-bodied products. Mechanically, the two automobiles are not that different either. The truck is powered by the same 65 horsepower L-head straight-six as the car. The rather simplistic dash includes a fuel gauge, speedometer, and amperemeter the C-113s were well-optioned in a day when trucks were used primarily for a utilitarian purpose. The bed, measuring 47.5"by 66" is a generously sized, all metal pickup box with plenty of space. With a two-tone green and black paint combination, this C-113 even manages to pull off an elegant look. Apart from some maintenance, this truck will once more be ready to hit the road. These trucks, though not commonly heard of, were far ahead of their time. Radically different from other utilitarian automobiles, these trucks offered a clean-cut appearance, the reliability of the Willys L-head six, and economical operability. Fairly priced, Willys offered a half-ton chassis starting at just $395, and a larger one-and-one half-ton chassis could be purchased for just $200 more. This C-113 would make the centerpiece of a classic truck collection and, with a production figure of only 198, this may be the last opportunity to own one for quite some time.

1913 Jackson Olympic Five-Passenger Touring

Lot # 8 (Sale Order: 7 of 60)      

380.9 cid inline four-cylinder L-head engine, 40.9 HP, three-speed sliding gear transmission, full elliptic leaf spring front and rear suspension, rear mechanical drum br...moreakes; wheelbase: 115". Built in Jackson, Michigan by famed engineer Byron J. Carter, the Jackson was a beautifully built and powerful automobile for its time. With all proprietary components including the engine, the Jackson was a reliable, luxurious and comfortable Brass Era car. Offered as part of The Auburn Auction is this incredibly original and well-cared-for Jackson Olympic Touring. Powered by its original 40 horsepower engine, the car has only been owned by three fastidious owners since 1913. Sold new in Iowa to a Mr. H. J. Walters, he owned businesses in Iowa and had several motorcars (an incredible feat for the era). He was seeking to find the finest motorcar on the market, and it is understood that he owned a Stutz, Packard, several Cadillac's and this Jackson, which explains why the car accrued so few miles during his ownership. He was a collector before collecting was a thing. His family sold the car in the late 1950's to Joseph Habeger whose family kept the car until the early 2000's. It is being sold by its third registered owner who sourced vintage Ohio plates for the car strictly for display and presentation purposes. The car has been fully maintained from new and has an actual 2,380 miles on the odometer from new. It is amazingly well-preserved and has no modifications from new with the exception of a repaint of the original body. Everything on the car is completely original and in excellent condition including the wood, frame, engine, transmission and suspension. The car has been serviced within the past year and runs and drives reliably. It is the most interesting and likely least expensive entry into preservation classes at events made quite popular by the likes of the Pebble Beach Concours and Amelia Island Concours. This is the first time the car has ever been properly offered to the public and represents a unique opportunity for new ownership to either preserve as is or tour the car as one of the only surviving Jackson automobiles extant. The car comes with a full file of documentation which includes paperwork from new, all ownership history and a plethora of other information as well. There are only a handful of Jackson's known and they typically trade for six figures when they do come to market. With a passionate and caring owner, this car is ready to go and will make a great and unique addition to its new home.

1966 Pontiac GTO Convertible

Lot # 9 (Sale Order: 8 of 60)      

389 cid V-8 engine with three Rochester Two Jet two-barrel carburetors, 360 HP, four-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear ...moreaxle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, four-wheel drum brakes; wheelbase: 115". The birth of the American muscle car (defined by a large engine in a mid-size car) began in late 1963. Under the direction of John Z. DeLorean, the 389 cubic-inch V-8 powered GTO, was introduced as a performance option for the Pontiac Tempest. The entire GTO project circumvented GM's prohibition of installing an engine over 330 cubic inches in their intermediate models, making the car a factory hot rod, or as it later became to be known as, a muscle car. DeLorean sent word about the GTO out to the Pontiac dealer network, receiving 5,000 orders before the GM brass even learned of the car's existence, according to legend. With such a strong positive response from the dealers, GM had to approve the GTO for production, despite the cubic-inch policy. It proved to be successful as Pontiac would go on to sell 32,540 GTOs in 1964 and helped to cement DeLorean's reputation in the industry. Big-car power in a medium-sized package made for exhilarating performance, with Car & Driver magazine achieving a 0-60mph time of 4.6 seconds and the standing quarter-mile in 13.1s/115.0mph with a 348 horsepower, manual transmission example, figures that put many a more esteemed - and more expensive - purpose-built sports car to shame. By 1966, the GTO had been designated as its own specific model within Pontiac's lineup. Fittingly, it was restyled with a slightly more curvaceous design, and it would gain what would become known as "Coke bottle" styling cues for its body lines. The standard 389 cubic-inch engine was tuned to produce 335 horsepower, but the most desirable option was the "Tri-Power" setup, which had triple two-barrel carburetors that could bring horsepower to 360, making this high-powered version a fierce competitor on drag strips across America. 1966 was the last year the iconic "Tri-Power" carburetion would be available on all GM cars, excluding the Corvette. This 1966 GTO convertible has been treated to an exhaustive, correctly coded, highly detailed, every nut and bolt and correct restoration. From the factory-original style plug wires, clamps and hoses under the hood to the correct dual exhaust system with proper mufflers, resonators and exhaust tips, this performance Pontiac is a show-stopping stunner. The close attention to detail during restoration can be seen and appreciated in every part of this exceptional GTO. Equipped with a host of factory options geared with performance in mind: the potent combination of the 360 horsepower, 389 cubic-inch engine with the legendary three two-barrel, Tri-Power carburetion system and Muncie four-speed manual transmission with Hurst shifter. Additionally, it is optioned with a posi-traction rear differential, tachometer with rally gauges, woodgrain sport steering wheel, center console and red-line radial tires mounted on factory Rally I wheels. Finished in its original code B Blue Charcoal body color with contrasting black interior and convertible top, this handsome GTO checks all the right boxes, not only for its highly desirable option list, but also for the extreme care and high quality of its restoration.

1929 Hudson Super Six Sport Coupe

Lot # 10 (Sale Order: 9 of 60)      

289 cid F-head inline four-cylinder engine, 30 HP, three-speed sliding gear manual transmission with single reverse gear, semi-floating rear axle, wood spoke wheels, four...more-wheel mechanical Bendix brakes; wheelbase: 118.5". At its peak, Hudson was the third largest automotive manufacturer in the United States. Well-known for innovation, Hudson was the first manufacturer of dual braking systems, oil-pressure and generator warning lights, and most importantly the first balanced crankshaft. Thanks to this advancement, Hudson's straight-six engine could operate at a higher rotational speed while still running smoothly. This allowed the six to develop more power for an engine of its size than lower speed powerplants. As a result, Hudson's "Super Six" lineup enjoyed one of the most successful production runs in America. Known for its dependability, it was the Super Six’s consistency that contributed to its popularity among consumers. It would not be until 1929 that Hudson would officially drop the Super Six label, a move that coincided with the company's adoption of its The Greater Hudson's ad campaign. On top of their dependability, the Hudson of 1929 was a visually appealing car. With a higher, sleeker radiator, vertical engine louvres, the addition of "Saddle Lamps", and larger, more modern headlights, these cars had what could only be described as an aristocratic look to them. After relocating the Motometer to the dash, Hudson added an ornately sculptured hood ornament to the top of the radiator. Each of these design improvements, attractively displayed on this 1929 Hudson Super Six Sports Coupe, complemented an already great car by giving it additional functionality. Offered from The Roaring Twenties Museum Collection, this delightful two-tone Hudson represents the last of its kind to carry the Super Six name. The interior, done in a plush green velour, is in fairly good condition for it age. This Hudson also features a steering wheel made from a rubber shell wrapped around a solid steel core, a first in the automotive industry. Notice, too, that the spark, throttle, light, and horn controls were all conveniently moved to the center of the wheel. This car also features a rumble seat which was, by this time, very common among all roadsters. This fine Hudson Super Six Roadster represents an attractive opportunity to own a car that is just as historically important as it is interesting. Don't miss out on this chance to experience the Super Six!

1939 Lincoln Zephyr Convertible Coupe

Lot # 11 (Sale Order: 10 of 60)      

267 cid L-head V-12 engine, 110 HP at 3,900 RPM, Stromberg two-barrel carburetor, three-speed manual transmission, solid beam front axle with transverse leaf springs, liv...moree rear axle also with transverse springs, hydraulic four-wheel drum brakes; wheelbase: 125". Under the guidance of Edsel B. Ford, on November 2, 1935, the Lincoln Motor Car Company, a division of Ford Motor Company, took the spotlight with the unveiling of the all new Lincoln Zephyr line. Reaching outside the company for design inspiration, this new smaller Lincoln had been designed based on John Tjaara's Strekenburg concept studies from the late 1920's. Originally designed for a rear-engine mounting with a bridge-truss integral frame, the front end of the car was smooth and sleek. Briggs Body Co. created a mock-up that was displayed at the Chicago World's Fair in 1934. Edsel Ford knew there was a major marketing gap between his father's Ford passenger cars and the luxurious Lincoln automobiles that he had overseen since the company had been acquired. Edsel Ford wanted to compete head-to-head with the likes of Chrysler Airflow, Buick Century and the soon-to-be released Packard 120. His solution was a car that offered superb styling and one feature none of the competition had, a multi-cylinder engine. When unveiled, Edsel Ford's stylist, E. T. Bob Gregorie's handy work presented a masterpiece of streamline design and elegance in sheet metal. Zephyr's featured a front-mounted V-12 engine that shared its basic design elements with the trustworthy Ford V-8 rather than the larger engines from Lincoln's Model K series. Promoted as offering a Zephyr-smooth ride with the passengers cradled between the axles, this new "baby"Lincoln was soon wooing customers over from other brands of automobiles. Initially offered only as a four-door sedan and a two-door coupe-sedan, the line expanded for 1937 with a full town limousine and a six-passenger coupe. For 1938, both a convertible sedan and a handsome convertible coupe were added to the line-up. Improvements to the engine were also incorporated with the use of hydraulic lifters providing a silent ride. For the 1939 model year, several more upgrades were released, the most important of these being the use of hydraulic brakes, as well as improvements to the electrical charging system. Styling saw the body updated with lower body skirting completely enclosing the running boards plus a mild face-lift to the front grille and sheet metal. The hood line was raised a bit which allowed for larger front grille opening that let more cooling air to flow through the radiator. Zephyr was also gaining an international following which may be one reason why the dashboard was designed to be asymmetrical with gloveboxes on each end, and a centrally mounted combination speedometer/instrument cluster which included gauges for fuel, oil pressure, charging and coolant temperature. One of just 640 Zephyr convertible coupes produced for the 1939 model year, this beautiful example has lived much of its life in the Grand Canyon state of Arizona. Treated to a full restoration a few years back, it is presented in a beautiful dark Zephyr Coach Maroon livery which is set off by the jewel-like finish of all exterior chrome surfaces including those highly sought-after teardrop taillights. The tan canvas top covers the chrome plated bows and fits just as it did when it was first produced and when folded in the down position is covered by a matching boot cover. Drivers and passengers are cradled in the lap of luxury with plush seats covered in fine red leather and the floor is covered with a custom fitted thick red loop-pile carpeting also in red. This impressive convertible is fitted with several desirable period accessories including dual outside rearview mirrors and a driver's side spotlight. The original wheels are riding on a set of gleaming wide whitewall tires and the rear fenders are fitted with color coordinated fender skirts. Below the speedometer is an original electric clock, and the banjo steering wheel features a flawless ivory plastic outer ring that matches the gear shift knob. Under the hood that Zephyr V-12 engine has been detailed to a show-quality appearance and we have been told it runs out quite well with the transmission slipping through the gears like a warm knife through butter. Easy on the eyes and a pleasure to drive, this Zephyr will not disappoint.

1929 Ford Model A Roadster

Lot # 12 (Sale Order: 11 of 60)      

200.5 cid L-head inline four-cylinder engine, 40 HP, three-speed sliding gear manual transmission with single reverse gear, solid front axle and live rear axle with trans...moreverse semi-elliptic leaf springs, four-wheel mechanical drum brakes; wheelbase: 103.5 Upon completion of the Model T's nearly 20-year production run, Ford introduced the Model A as the successor to the "Tin Lizzie". A wide array of options was available on this lineup, beginning with the Roadster at $385 and ending with the top-of-the-line Town Car at $1,400. Reverting to the first letter of the alphabet was Ford's way of symbolizing the tremendous impact this vehicle would have on the company. Like its predecessor, the Model A had a four-cylinder L-head engine and semi-elliptic front and rear transverse springs. Aside from that, the Model A was comprised of over a thousand more parts and components than the T. For starters, the water-cooled engine of the Model A was twice as powerful and could attain a top speed of 65 miles per hour. The magneto starting system was replaced with a conventional battery ignition, and the planetary transmission gave way to a sliding gear three speed unit. While exterior features did maintain a link with those of the Model T, larger tires and a high belt line showed that obvious design influence from Lincoln was used in the A. Offered here from The Roaring Twenties Museum Collection is this beautiful Model A roadster. Full crown fenders, wire spoke wheels, and a Washington blue body perfectly mingles with the yellow pinstriping and tan top. This Model A brilliantly displays its bright trim, tastefully added chrome, and other exterior features, emphasizing greatly on the car's visual appeal. Equipment such a combination tail and stop light, windshield wiper, and front/rear bumpers now came standard as well. The interior and rumble seat are dressed in a rich brown upholstery, which beautifully contrasts with the color scheme of the exterior. Dual side-mounted covered spares, a rear-mounted trunk, runningboard gates and wind wings give this Model A it's very elegant and charming look. The waffle manifold and firewall heat outlet door indicate that this car once had the clever yet primitive heater. Garnering credit solely through its sales performance, the Model A remains one of the most successful production cars to date. By February of 1929, one million Model As had been sold, a number that would jump to two million before the end of July. By March of the following year, Model A sales hit an astounding three million. This 1929 Model A Rumble Seat Roadster is truly a beautiful car and should be enjoyed by its new owner for years to come.

1964 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Lot # 13 (Sale Order: 12 of 60)      

327 cid V-8 engine, 300 HP, automoatic transmission, independent front coil spring suspension, rear transverse leaf spring suspension, drum brakes; wheelbase: 98" The 1...more964 Chevy Corvette was greeted with as much enthusiasm as its 1963 counterpart had been the year before. With the monumental success that Chevrolet had experienced after the introduction of its second-generation Corvette Sting Ray, GM executives understood that the C2's sophomore year would require little more than continued refinement to the already intensely popular sports car to maintain its success. Most of the styling refinements that were made to the exterior of the 1964 model were subtle. The most notable change involved the replacement of the rear split-window that had been introduced in 1963. The split-window was abandoned completely by General Motors in 1964, replaced instead by a rear window that was constructed of a single piece of glass. This beautiful 327 car is highly original and looks great from all angles. It's been repainted once in the correct Sebring Silver paint. It has a great stance, with excellent panel fit, chrome and trim. You'll see the correct and distinctive 64 hood, without the faux hood vents, but still showing the recesses. Also new for 64 are rear pillar vents on the driver's side, aiding in cockpit ventilation. The driver will enjoy a lovely black interior, woodgrain steering wheel, and factory air-conditioning. Motor Trend Magazine tested a four-speed 327 coupe with the 4.11:1 rear axle ratio on this car and the results were impressive. The engine bay is clean and very correct, and you'll love showing off both the performance and the good looks of this desirable C-2 Corvette. Supplied with plenty of documentation, our consignor reports that the mileage shown is accurate at 69,000 miles from new. With limited and careful ownership from new, this clean Arizona car stands ready for enjoyment of many miles of open road.

In the vein of the European grand touring car, Studebaker introduced the Speedster as a one-year-only model. Proclaimed “Speedster By Studebaker,” this is a personal luxury/performance vehicle. It sported the most powerful engine available and a unique tri-tone exterior color scheme. “For Those Who Demand The Best,” quipped Studebaker’s corporate marketing. Its interior appointments were also unique to the Speedster model, such as a machine-turned instrument panel and diamond pattern stitched upholstery providing both a performance and luxury aesthetic to the automobile. With a factory base price of $3,253, the Speedster was an exclusive motoring experience for the most discerning of clientele. Although only 2,215 Speedsters were produced, Studebaker was enamored with the concept and decided to introduce a line of “family sports cars” the following year, the Hawk series. This example was restored and modernized by a true craftsman, Robert Campisi. Saved from a California wrecking yard in 1988, Mr. Campisi performed a nine-year and exhaustive rebuild of the Speedster. This process is documented in detail by his photo album charting every step he took in resurrected this rare Studebaker. After completing the restoration, Mr. Campisi and his wife spent many hours touring with local car clubs from the Bay Area, California, proving the vehicle’s reliability for long distance driving. It would grace the field of the Hillsboro Concours d’Elegance in 2003 and many local car show events during Mr. Campisi’s life. Tasteful upgrades include a 12-volt charging system, modern stereo and wiring system, which features an electronic ignition for reliability. The exterior sports a Speedster exclusive two-tone paint scheme with Shasta White and Pimlico Grey Metallic colors giving the automobile a classic sense of style. All brightwork was re-chromed during restoration which enhances the striking two-tone livery. With its rebuilt Studebaker ‘Passmaster V-8’ and automatic transmission, the vehicle is well-sorted and prepared for immediate use in any touring opportunity. This is your chance to own a Speedster that Studebaker announced as “Style and Performance with Family Car Comfort.” Donated for auction to support the Studebaker National Museum....more

1911 Ford Model T Runabout

Lot # 16 (Sale Order: 14 of 60)      

176 cid L-head inline four-cylinder engine, 20 HP at 1,600 RPM, Holley 4500 carburetor, two-speed planetary transmission, transversely-mounted independent front and rear ...moreaxle beams with semi-elliptic springs, locking transmission with external rear wheel parking brakes; wheelbase: 100" No other car in automotive history has done more for creating a motoring public. For millions of drivers, the Ford Model T most likely provided their first experience behind the wheel of an automobile. Henry Ford set out to produce a car that anyone could drive and most everyone could afford. Over the years, as he was able to speed up production, he was able to lower prices. The mechanics were simple enough that any shade-tree mechanic with a minimum of tools could repair or rebuild a Model T. Today, over 110 years since they were placed on the market, it is estimated that nearly a half million are still in operation, and no real car collection is complete until they have a genuine Ford Model T. As with many early Model Ts, the history of this car is unknown. Finished in gleaming white with diamond tufted black leather seats, the brass radiator along with those massive gas-lit headlights and even the brass taillight sets this little runabout apart from most other Ts. Our research did show that the engine currently in this car dates from a July 1913 build, however the car is titled as a 1911. Kept in a museum atmosphere for the past several years we are told that this car has been exercised on a regular basis and is quite reliable for taking part in a vintage car rally, drive or and exposition such as the Old Car Festival at Greenfield Village close to where this sharp car was originally constructed. Restoration on this runabout looks to have been done several years back, but it does show quite well and mechanically it is quite sound. Appointments on this little car include a vintage Moto-meter with "dog-bone" radiator cap done in brass, running board mounted collapsible storage rack, windshield support arms, rearview mirror and a Ford script ammeter. Promising to offer some memorable motoring memories, this 108-year-old fabulous Ford would be a joy to own.

1925 Hupmobile E-1 Boattail Roadster

Lot # 18 (Sale Order: 15 of 60)      

247 cid L-head straight eight-cylinder, 60 HP, three-speed manual transmission, solid front axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf s...moreprings, and hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 118.25". The Hupp Motor Car Company was founded by Robert and Louis Hupp in 1908. Throughout their 32 years of operation they produced a wide variety of cars. Hupmobile's early cars appealed more to the entry-level market, competing along the lines of the Ford Model T. In the mid-1920s Hupmobile decided to focus its product toward more wealthy consumers with the introduction of a new eight-cylinder engine. For the 1925 model year, Hupmobile's products could be purchased either with the well-known and proven four-cylinder motor or the upscale and significantly more powerful L-head inline eight-cylinder engine. This motor could churn up higher RPMs than others at the time, generating as much as 60 horsepower and performed above expectations. There was a substantial price difference between the two cars, with the eight-cylinder models costing around $700 more than their four-cylinder counterparts. Four-wheel hydraulic brakes and balloon tires were also available on the higher priced Hupmobiles. This 1925 Hupmobile E-1 Boattail Roadster, offered from The Roaring Twenties Museum Collection, is a brilliant example of how the company went about establishing itself within a more affluent upscale clientele. The exterior, elegantly painted in tan, light green, and black, immediately draws attention. A black soft top, red interior, and light tan artillery wheels give this Hupmobile even more of an eye-catching look. The history of this car is just as vibrant and alluring as its color scheme. Delivered new in 1925 to a bootlegger in Fairmont, West Virginia, it is rumored to be just one of just eight produced in this body style. After running into some health problems, the bootlegger was forced to rapidly depart West Virginia, after which his car fell into disrepair. The second and final owner of the car purchased it in 1962, taking the car home in three separate trips. After two years of lengthy restoration work, the sporty little Hupmobile was once again ready for the open road. This particular E-1 Roadster is one of just three still in existence today. Despite being mass-produced in their day, Hupmobiles are very uncommon sights on the road and at events, adding further value to this tastefully restored car. Bound to turn heads wherever it is driven, this 1925 E-1 Boattail Roadster is a truly unique and rare find.

1963 Lincoln Continental Convertible

Lot # 19 (Sale Order: 16 of 60)      

430 cid OHV V-8 engine, 320 HP, three-speed automatic transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-whe...moreel power hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 123". After the baroque, heavily sculpted and chrome laden 1958 to 1960 models, Lincoln designers went back to the drawing board to create a clean, modern new car that would debut in 1961. Focusing on elegant simplicity, the line would be pared down to a single model, the Continental, which would be offered only as a four-door sedan and as a four-door convertible, with the latter being the last of its kind to be built by a Detroit automaker, when the model was discontinued in 1967. The new Continental, created under the leadership of Elwood Engel, was smaller than earlier models, but continued to utilize unit-body construction. The decision to downsize the Continental resulted in one of its most distinctive features: suicide-style rear doors, as there was simply not enough room between the wheel wells for four doors, and a generous rear passenger seat without hinging the back doors at the rear. In order to accommodate an ultra-low ride height, the Continental boasted an innovative driveshaft that was lowered as far as possible to reduce the interior tunnel. Other advanced features included extensive factory rustproofing, curved window glass, and a standard two-year 24,000-mile factory warranty, which was the first of its kind offered on an American car. Each Continental underwent exhaustive road testing prior to its delivery to its original owner. The automotive writers of the day complimented Lincoln on its minimal design changes, with Jim Wright of Motor Trend (July 1963) stating: "At first glance, it's not easy to tell a 1963 Continental from a 1962 or even a 1961, for that matter. Planned obsolescence just isn't cricket in a car that costs upwards of $6,200, so styling changes from year to year are very subtle." This continuation of design also rewarded Lincoln owners with improved value retention at trade-in time, which was something earlier Lincolns hadn't seen. It is no wonder that the model was such a lasting success, with a styling theme that would be used through the end of the decade, and it has become a hallmark of Lincoln design. The well-equipped Continental offered here includes power seats, power vent windows, factory air-conditioning, and automatic headlight dimmers. Recently, the current owner commissioned a no-expense-spared, every nut and bolt, correct restoration by noted 1960s Lincoln restoration expert Rich Liana. All cosmetic, mechanical and electric components of this rust-free car have been totally rebuilt and are in excellent working order. Upgrades added during the restoration include a set of wide whitewall radial tires and a stainless-steel exhaust system. Attention to detail is evident in every area of this exceptional automobile. The engine bay is highly detailed with correctly marked and coded hoses, clamps, decals and proper paint finishes done to show standards. Finished elegantly in the understated and regal factory original color scheme of Inverness Green with contrasting sumptuous cream leather seats, this iconic, show-quality Lincoln has yet to be shown at a concours or club event, presenting an opportunity for the next owner to exhibit and enjoy this truly remarkable car.

1953 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible

Lot # 21 (Sale Order: 17 of 60)      

331 cid OHV V-8 engine rated at 160 HP, four-speed Hydra-Matic transmission, coil spring independent front suspension and live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, ...morefour-wheel hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 126" For 1953, Cadillac was on top of its game with a dazzling display of fine cars that showed the world just how gorgeous a car could be. Offering no less than eight different models, buyers could choose from a luxury sedan to a sporty convertible, but all had one thing in common; extravagance beyond compare and a multitude of options that explored the absolute pinnacle of comfort in a way that no other car could. Indeed, Cadillac had a banner year for 1953 with 109,651 cars produced. Of all those Cadillacs built for 1953, only 8,367 were Series 62 convertibles like the one offered here, and it became the company's best selling convertible. Wearing a restoration that was commissioned in 2006, this beautiful example of Cadillac's heritage is finished in desirable Pastoral Blue with a two-tone light and dark blue leather interior. For sheer size and elegance, this is a Cadillac that speaks to an era of when bigger was better. Cadillac spared no expense in its design for 1953 with massive chrome bumpers both fore and aft that featured rocket nose accents that were pointing the way to America's future in space. The quality of the restoration of this car is clearly apparent in its immaculate paint, brilliant chrome, and tidy interior, all of which were finished with the highest level of craftsmanship in its restoration. The paint on this car is superb while all chrome has wonderful shine. All exterior trim was fully restored and its fit and finish is excellent. The blue canvas convertible top is new and presents as nearly new. This Cadillac rides on its factory steel rims with the "sombrero" hubcaps and wide whitewall tires for an exceptional look. Since its full restoration this Cadillac has been expertly maintained and shows very little wear. It also runs and drives as well as its looks and was recently refreshed with an oil and filter change, and a flush and refill of all hydraulics including the power windows and power steering system. The brake fluid was also flushed and changed, and it also received a wheel alignment. There just aren't that many cars that can command the attention of a 1950s cruiser and this 1953 Cadillac Series 62 convertible is a car that owns the boulevard. Style, class, size, and elegance all come together in this Cadillac that will most certainly be the hit at any show.

1925 Studebaker Special Six Duplex Roadster

Lot # 22 (Sale Order: 18 of 60)      

242 cid L-head inline six-cylinder engine, 50 HP, three-speed manual transmission with single reverse gear, floor mount shifting controls, semi-floating rear axle; wheelb...morease: 120". Studebaker was originally founded in 1852 as the Studebaker Brothers Manufacturing Company of South Bend, Indiana. Initially producing wagons for farmers, miners, and the military, it was not until 1911 that Studebaker would enter the automotive business as its own independent marque. The Special Six Series, which began production in 1918, was Studebaker's mid-range model. Available in several body styles, the Special Six enjoyed positive sales numbers throughout its production years and was eventually rebadged as the Studebaker Commander. For the 1925 model year, the Studebaker Special Six debuted the Model EQ which was available as either a Duplex Phaeton or a Duplex Roadster utilizing pull-down side curtains for inclement weather. Offered from The Roaring Twenties Museum Collection, this three person Duplex Roadster is part of the "Sheriff" series which was used by the Texas and Arizona Rangers. Interestingly, it was also favored among Bootleggers who affectionately dubbed it "The Whiskey Six". Featuring a black rigid steel-reinforced top, pinstriped baby blue paint, and black fenders and running boards, this Studebaker is bound to impress. Additional exterior features on this car include the distinctive, fluted radiator shell which was continued from previous years, drum style headlights, and a fluted hood panel. Note also that this Studebaker also includes dual rear-mounted spare tires and dual spotlights, both options for the car. The interior of this Studebaker features a single black bench seat, a column floor shifter, and a brown wooden steering wheel. The dashboard instrument cluster includes an Elgin clock, amperemeter, fuel gauge, oil pressure gauge, speedometer, trip meter, and an odometer. From carriages to cars, Studebaker cemented a reputation by building durable, high quality vehicles. Reliability and performance also set Studebaker apart from the rest of the automotive manufacturers. It was this broad and deep commitment to quality that further developed the brands reputation. Studebaker's innovations and commitment to solid engineering never faltered. Though Studebaker is long gone, their reputation continues to be demonstrated through the continued enjoyment of products like this highly sought-after 1925 Special Six Roadster.

1991 Acura NSX

Lot # 24 (Sale Order: 19 of 60)      

3.0-litre DOHC 24-valve V-6 engine, 270 HP, five-speed transmission, front independent aluminum double-wishbone suspension with coil springs, stabilizer bar and complianc...moree pivot, rear independent aluminum double-wishbone with coil springs and stabilizer bar, dual diagonal, power-assisted four-wheel ventilated disc brakes; four-channel anti-lock braking system; wheelbase: 99.6". When Honda launched the Acura NSX in 1991 it signified a change in the direction of an exotic car. Exhibited at the Chicago Auto Show in 1989, it made its debut in mid-1990 as a 1991 model and stayed in production until 2005. In that time, it became a world class car that offered excellent engineering in a package that was fun to drive and rode like it was on rails. Indeed, the NSX managed to write its own chapter in automotive history. Offered here is an excellent first-year example of this striking car finished in black over silver. Showing 72,000 miles on the clock, this NSX has been impeccably maintained to the highest standards and presents today almost as it did when it left the showroom. A careful look at this car clearly demonstrates the impeccable condition throughout. Styling for the NSX was a tour de force of advanced design and engineering for its time. Construction was based on a strong, yet lightweight aluminum chassis that represented the cutting edge of automobile design principles at the time. Testing the chassis was assisted by Formula 1 champion driver Ayrton Senna with his detailed input while testing the prototype car at Honda's famed Suzuka circuit. This NSX's engine compartment is clean with no issues and this NSX runs as well as it looks. The interior is a true driver's environment with all controls within easy reach and a dashboard layout that speaks to a true performance car. This NSX also comes with its factory-fitted emergency tools consisting of the roadside jack, lug wrench, screwdriver, and air compressor. This example also carries several amenities in the way of a dealer-installed CD changer in the trunk, keyless entry system, tinted windows, custom ARK exhaust system, upgraded Bose speakers with digital boosters, upgraded window pulleys, and a factory car cover. Original dealer literature and service invoices are also included with the sale of this NSX as well as several period magazine articles and sales brochures. The Acura NSX is a car that changed the direction of several car designs and perhaps it’s more than ironic that the new Chevrolet Corvette will follow the NSX’s lead as a mid-engine car for its next model. The fact that Acura did it back in 1991 is a testament to this car's unique appeal in the collector market.

1965 Lincoln Continental Convertible

Lot # 26 (Sale Order: 20 of 60)      

430 cid OHV V-8 engine, 320 HP, three-speed automatic transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-whe...moreel hydraulic power front disc and rear drum brakes; wheelbase: 126". Starting with the 1958 models, Lincoln changed from a body-bolted-to-frame design to one of unitary construction. These were the largest Lincolns constructed up to that time and the most immense unibody cars ever, with heavily sculpted, complex bodies and brimming with chrome. Although contemporary with the trends of 1958, they became decidedly dated by 1960. The crisp, new, clean design for 1961 started out as a Thunderbird concept under the direction of chief stylist Elwood Engel. It was Robert McNamara, Ford general manager and soon to become company president, who suggested it become a four-door Lincoln Continental. This was not a simple task, since an evolutionary Lincoln, based on the 1958-1960 design, was already in process. But Engel's design prevailed and went into production in November of 1960. The Industrial Design Institute awarded the Lincoln Continental a prestigious Bronze Medal, rare for an automobile. A full 15 inches shorter than its predecessor (and 10 and 15 inches shorter, respectively, than 1961 Cadillacs and Imperials), the new Continental was designed for ease of passenger entry: the lack of a wraparound windshield and use of aft-hinged "suicide" rear doors aided in this. A truly elegant addition was the availability of a four-door convertible body style, the first since the low-production Frazer Manhattan of 1951. Design changes over the first three years were minimal. A 1964 freshening restyled the tail end, but also changed the curved side glass to flat panels, which was more cost effective. The wheelbase was stretched three inches to 126, providing more rear legroom, and front disc brakes became standard in 1965 (Cadillac would not offer disc brakes even as an option until 1968). These are sometimes called "Kennedy Lincolns," since several were part of the White House fleet and one of them became heartbreakingly famous in Dallas during November 1963. Some, however, prefer to remember the image of President Johnson leading cars of the intrepid press corps, in a car very much like this one, at astronomical speeds on the LBJ Ranch. This beautiful 1965 Lincoln Continental Convertible, with its iconic suicide doors, is gorgeous in the original color scheme it left the factory with, Fiesta Red with a sumptuous red and white leather interior. The current owner of this Lincoln commissioned well-respected 1961-1969 Lincoln expert and restoration specialist Rich Liana to perform a show-quality restoration in an effort to create the highest quality 1965 Lincoln possible. The results speak for themselves when seeing this incredibly pristine Lincoln. Loaded with options including rare factory bucket seats, air-conditioning, AM/FM radio and tilt steering column. Every area of this car has been totally rebuilt and restored correctly - - and to show standards. No detail had been overlooked in the pursuit of perfection. This is an excellent choice for exhibition, club events, touring in comfort, or to add to any fine collection of cars.

1969 Chevrolet Camaro 396 Resto Mod

Lot # 27 (Sale Order: 21 of 60)      

396 cid V-8 engine, 375 HP, automatic transmission, independent coil spring front suspension, rear semi-elliptic leaf springs, disc brakes; wheelbase: 108". Built for spe...moreed, this 1969 Camaro SS 396 looks fast just sitting still. And while it's great looking, the real story is under the hood, because this coupe packs a potent L78 396/375 engine, and enough horsepower to make you forget this car is more than 40 years old. Bathed in subtle Lemans Blue paint with black graphics and black vinyl top, nobody will be able to overlook this cool resto mod. This car was acquired by the consignor right out of Detroit where it was born 50 years ago. The then owner, in 2015, was $40,000 into a restoration focused on upgrades when he sold, and our consignor easily doubled that to complete the car in 2015. The code 711 black bucket seat interior is beautifully created with very subtle modern touches. The upholstery is in excellent condition with very little use since the restoration was completed, and the back seat looks untouched. Turn the key, and you’ll notice digital inserts in the stock gauge housings - a great touch. Extras include a tastefully installed modern sound system and a digital alarm system behind a nicely restored three-spoke steering wheel. The paint and bodywork are outstanding, with sharp graphics and clean front and rear spoilers. Custom wheels fill the wheel wells nicely, with modern radial performance tires. The Lemans Blue finish is applied well over a very straight body, with proper SS badging in place and that big hood scoop. The engine is a correct JH suffix code L78 375 horsepower 396 cubic-inch big block, fully rebuilt and detailed for show. It's nicely built with chrome valve covers, an open-element air cleaner, and a massive radiator, while a factory aluminum intake and four-barrel Holley handle the fuel. It even has period-correct aluminum heads, with cast iron exhaust manifolds that feed a factory-style chambered exhaust system, which replaces the original transverse muffler right behind the 12-bolt rear end. It's almost as clean underneath as it is up top, which is more proof that this car was restored right, and the detailing is show-worthy. There are a lot of nice '69 Camaros out there, but this one is truly a wolf in sheep's clothing. That nicely built big block makes this a car that can surprise some with much newer hardware, and still knock them dead on the show field.

1931 Chrysler Deluxe CD Touring Sedan

Lot # 28 (Sale Order: 22 of 60)      

282 cid L-head inline eight-cylinder engine, 100 HP at 3,400 RPM, Stromberg BXV two-carburetor, three-speed manual transmission, solid front axle and live rear axle with ...moresemi-elliptic leaf spring suspension, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 124" In 1930, Chrysler had released their first inline eight-cylinder cars in the popular CD series. Despite the looming financial pressures from the growing depression, sales were strong. Sporting 80 horsepower when released, Chrysler continued to improve their product, boosting the output to 88 horsepower in January 1931. Never resting, in May 1931, Chrysler upped the CD series prestige and horsepower plus more attractive coachwork by introducing the Deluxe CD line. A total of 5,843 five-passenger Deluxe sedans were produced in that shortened model year, making this model the most popular choice among customers. Coming from the height of the classic era, the styling touches of the Deluxe CD has been compared closely to that of Cord’s Front Drive L29 series of cars from that same era. With comfortable seating for a driver and four passengers, these sedans offered comfort and roominess that many wanted, but few could afford. Our consignor tells us that this beautiful example was originally purchased by a police officer from New York City, who must have been a very high-ranking official to afford such a prestigious automobile. Acquired by a collector in the early 1990s, it was taken to the shops of Richard Grenon, one of Canada’s premier vintage automotive specialists where it was treated to a full nut and bolt restoration. In addition to a complete mechanical rebuild, it was at this time the car saw a color change from royal blue and black to its current and quite attractive livery of vibrant red with burgundy fender and accents. The interior is finished with fine tan wool broadcloths which include a footrest for the rear seat passengers and typical appointments of the day including a full set of dash-mounted gauges. This beautiful specimen is also fitted with the optional dual side-mounted spare tires, each with a rearview mirror, a touring trunk to the rear, cowl lights, driving lights, a rearview mirror mounted Mansfield "Glow-Nite" clock, plus to keep passengers warm and cozy, a period-correct Majestic Hot Wave heater. Since this Chrysler's restoration, it has been kept in climate-controlled storage and has been shown only a few times. Easy to drive and operate, this charming sedan would be an excellent candidate for touring or, with a bit of TLC, could be prepared to compete in some of the finest automotive exhibitions around.

1915 Ford Model T C-Cab

Lot # 29 (Sale Order: 23 of 60)      

177 cid L-head inline four-cylinder engine, Single Holley carburetor, 22 HP at 1,600 RPM, two-speed planetary transmission, braking by contracting band in transmission and driveshaft brake, transverse leaf-spring suspension front and rear
The Ford Model T dominated automobile sales in America for the first quarter of the 20th Century. One of the obvious reasons was price, but the fact that the T was available in just about every body style one can imagine, be it from Ford or the aftermarket, Model Ts came to serve in virtually every commercial capacity. One common usage was, of course, as a delivery van and the C-Cab Delivery Van offered here, is so named for its crescent like B-pillar. It is certainly among the most stylish commercial vehicles offered at the time. A simple but practical machine, the C-Cab Delivery features an artfully crafted wooden box over the rear portion of the chassis. While not hugely expensive, care was taken in designing the Delivery and the result is an elegant and handsome machine that would be equally suited delivering Coca-Cola as it would be delivering flowers to a wedding. Well over 100 years ago a pharmacist in Atlanta, Georgia developed a recipe for a drink he called Coca-Cola, becoming the preferred beverage for mega millions of people worldwide and the rest is history. This icon of refreshment has also inspired collectors worldwide to collect all types of vintage Coca-Cola items and inspiring this stunning hand built and hand painted truck. This Model T C-Cab is fully dressed in mirror finish red paint on an original restored red 1915 model T chassis; truly a tribute to this great refreshment. The C-Cab body was all hand built from a 1/18 scale Franklin Mint model that is included with the sale. The nostalgic lettering was triple-coated, and hand painted by local artist to capture the authentic look. The entire C-Cab including double rear doors is beautifully done in brilliant red and completely outlined in antique finished 23 karat gold leaf. The more than a century-old 1915 chassis was carefully restored and fitted with a C-Cab body. The front end has the famous Ford hand polished, buffed and coated brass radiator, and the brass, red gas headlights and kerosene side lights are done in red. The windshield is all brass with safety glass and hard-fit custom supports. The wood wheels were carefully painted red and striped with a triple-coat half-wedge. Mounted on the wheels are all white tires to authentically capture the natural rubber look. This is a piece one could put in their living room. The owner reports this Model T Runs and drives as new. This example, built in the USA by Billy's Big Boys Garage, is a wonderful focal point for any car collection or memorabilia collection and a truly a gorgeous tribute to the humble beginnings of Coca-Cola....more

1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible

Lot # 30 (Sale Order: 24 of 60)      

400 cid V-8 engine, Holley four-barrel carburetor, Turbo 400 automatic transmission with overdrive, custom independent four-wheel Hotchkiss suspension, disc brakes; wheel...morebase: 112" There are few real deal 1969 Pontiac GTO convertibles out there - fewer than 4,385 were produced a half-century ago. So, when you're looking at one that has an unbeatable paint finish, and its original fire-breathing 400 V-8... well then, you know the ultimate GTO collectable is up for grabs. This GTO 'Vert is powered by a numbers-matching 400 cubic-inch, 6.6-liter V-8 which produces quite a bit more than the 366-horsepower delivered from the factory. Start with a .30 over bore and a performance Comp Cam, topped with a high-rise manifold and 750 Holley four-barrel. Add in MSD electronic ignition, ceramic headers and custom Flowmaster exhaust, and "Bessie" has plenty of power. Top end was enhanced with a Turbo 400 automatic transmission with overdrive, and the ride was taken up a notch with new Hotchkiss suspension featuring a 1.3” slight drop. Finish with a 10-bolt rear and big and little Cragar wheels, and you’ve got one of the most potent GTO convertibles we’ve ever seen. The PPG Liquid Crystal paint is called Ruby Slipper, and it must be seen to be believed. It has a soft gradient change as the natural lighting shifts for an incredible custom effect. This sunshine-friendly droptop now radiates the sunlight even better than any of its contemporaries. Combine this with the super-straight body, you really get to appreciate the curves that make the second-gen GTO a sought-after legend. The car would be equally at home at a custom car show or a Pontiac-Oakland club meet, as it is delivered today with full PHS documentation. The interior is beautifully finished in custom leather, including the door panels and wheel. Of course, power steering, power brakes, power windows are included, with a like-new power-operated Oyster top that features a glass window. Everyone in the family will enjoy the Vintage Air air-conditioning and AM/FM stereo, and the car needs nothing to enjoy. It’s one of the very best we’ve seen, and "Bessie" earned her nickname with immaculate condition and unmistakable style.

1967 Lincoln Continental Lehmann-Peterson Limousine

Lot # 32 (Sale Order: 25 of 60)      

462 cid OHV V-8 engine, 340 HP at 4,600 RPM, single Carter four-barrel carburetor, three-speed Turbo Drive automatic transmission, independent front suspension and semi-f...moreloating rear axle with parallel leaf springs, four-wheel power-assisted hydraulic drum brakes; wheelbase: 160" Nothing was too good for Hugh Heffner, so when it was time to purchase an executive limousine for his popular Playboy Club in Chicago, he selected one of the most impressive and expensive limousines available a new Lincoln Continental Lehmann-Peterson stretch limousine. After rigorous testing of a prototype by Ford, Lehmann-Peterson contracted with Ford in 1963 to create a limited number of specially modified cars with the intention of providing the most luxurious, well-engineered limousines on the market. The limousines were handcrafted with state-of-the-art coachbuilding techniques. At the factory, Ford would install a "Limousine Conversion Kit" consisting a beefier suspension with an added leaf spring in the rear and stiffer front coils, heavy-duty shock absorbers and larger tires. Lehmann-Peterson would then strip the car, cut it in half, and add a section between the front and rear doors. From 1964 on, this added section was 34 inches long, which produced a wheelbase of 160 inches. Ordering was done by picking out a car at a Lincoln-Mercury dealership and choosing from the vast Lincoln and Lehmann-Peterson options lists. Although Ford built the Lincoln Continental to extremely high standards of body rigidity, annual testing revealed that after conversion, the limousines were even stronger. Because of this, Lehmann-Peterson was the only coachbuilder granted the right to have its cars covered by the same Ford Motor Company warranty as the factory-produced cars. Furthermore, Lincoln began advertising the limos in its brochures starting in 1965. From the beginning, Lehmann-Peterson reached exciting new heights of luxury. For example, the eight-passenger seating arrangement allowed all rear passengers to face each other rather than stare at or talk to the back of someone's neck. The options list tested the buyer's imagination. After loading on what Ford had to offer, then came Lehmann-Peterson's list. From about 1964 to 1970, these carefully crafted cars were the preferred choice of many heads of state, movie stars, captains of industry, presidents, the Secret Service and even the Pope. Only a handful were constructed each year, all made to order. This limousine was ordered new by The Playboy Company, as evidenced by the original Lehmann-Peterson factory build-sheet that accompanies the car. Special features include front and rear sunroofs, electric divider window, rear air-conditioning system, TV, switchboard, rotary phone and Motorola radio phone with original manuals. Additionally, it is optioned with the rare and desirable crystal bar set consisting of two crystal decanters and four metal cups with a tray. This limousine is presented in an un-restored patinaed condition; however, it has been properly serviced by its current owner for many years and runs and drives well. One can only imagine who may have ridden in this historic automobile, the conversations they may have had and the places it has been, whisking well-heeled party goers to and from the famous Playboy Club late at all hours of the day and night.
