1979 Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo Coupe
Lot # 743 1979 Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo Coupe; S/N 9309800543; Oak Green/Cork leather; Unrestored original, 2- condition; Yes Reserve; Hammered Sold at $120,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $132,000 – Fuchs wheels, Yokohama tires, sunroof, whale tail, rear wiper, power windows, air conditioning, modern Alpine stereo. – Lots of small stone chips on the nose and hood. Otherwise very well kept and shiny original paint. Small track scratch on top of the sunroof. Very good, lightly worn interior. Showing 65,510 miles. Not perfect and not the best early 930 in the world, but more than good enough to enjoy and these are really gorgeous colors. – Hammered not sold at Mecum Indy this year at a high bid of $140,000, which was and still is less than the car really deserves. Although this car did have a reserve on it in Vegas, the owner seems to have bitten the bullet and taken a lower but still realistic number. This is not an environment to chase a soft market, something the seller realized.

1949 Ford F-1 Panel Truck
Lot # 349 1949 Ford F-1 Panel Truck; S/N 97HC253427; Seamist Green/Black vinyl; Truck restoration, 3+ condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $25,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $27,500 – 226/95hp six, 3-speed, hub caps and trim rings, whitewalls, dual mirrors, floor shift, amber driving lights. – Completely restored to truck standards with an average quality respray with fine cracks along the body sides. Good interior. Fully restored and tidy underneath. Done to truck standards but still cool. Used as a Leinenkugel promo vehicle. – Could there be a better tailgating vehicle for Pittsburgh Steelers games? The six limits its appeal to hot rodders and customizers, but not a lot. It is a quality truck for a realistic price.
1966 Pontiac GTO 2-Dr. Hardtop
Lot # 352 1966 Pontiac GTO 2-Dr. Hardtop; S/N 242176P105494; Blue/Blue vinyl; Older restoration, 3+ condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $36,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $39,600 – 389/360hp added Tri-Power, 4-speed, Rally wheels, Firestone red line tires, bucket seats, floor shift, factory radio, PHS documents. – Represented as matching numbers but didn’t come originally with Tri-Power. Big chip in the middle of the nose and several sizable scratches on the front bumper. All of the panel gaps are slightly uneven, paint and chrome are pretty good otherwise. Restored underneath. Very good interior. Hardly the show quality restoration it’s advertised as, at least not recently, but still a car you’d be proud to own and drive. – This is just an average GTO hardtop but its configuration ticks most of the GTO boxes and that makes it an attractive buy, particularly at this modest price. It has needs, but none of them are serious nor need remedial attention to be enjoyably driven or shown at any Cars’n’Coffee or weekend show and shine event. Why anyone would pay twice this much for a Chevelle with comparable equipment is a mystery.
1952 International (IHC) L-110 Pickup
Lot # 352.1 1952 International (IHC) L-110 Pickup; S/N SD220181454; Mint Green, Black fenders/Gray piped in Black; Truck restoration, 2 condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $33,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $36,300 – 4-speed, white wheels with hub caps and trim rings, Blackwall tires, dual mirrors, Amber driving lights, sun visor, rear mud flaps, wood bed, single spare wheel. – Restored in original colors. Front bumper has light scratches on the top and paint drips around the edges. A few small scratches and chips around the edges of the hood but other than that and the bumper, the paint is very good and better than normal truck standards. Interior and bed are very good as well, and the frame is spotless without being overdone. Most of these were probably worked to death, even more than normal for the trucks of the day. This one isn’t perfect, but it’s rare and must be one of the best ones around. Inherently more interesting than either the equivalent Ford or Chevy, but not worth any more than either. – Sold at Motostalgia’s Indianapolis sale this year for $26,000, which was itself a huge result, but this number is in a different ball park, down to a paddle war between two bidders who knew they might never come across an example this good again. [Editor says: Let me put this in perspective. My father worked for a company that owned an IH dealership. I drove IH pickups like this before I was legally driving (they were orange with black fenders, but that’s easily fixed.) Hard-working trucks survive in small numbers, so when you find one in good condition ‘sense’ is nonsense.] This has all the signs of a result driven by memory, and for that it’s no less or more than it deserves to be.
2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe
Lot # 358.1 2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Coupe; S/N WP0AA29993S623107; Silver/Black leather; Unrestored original, 2- condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $29,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $31,900 – P Zero tires, cross-drilled rotors, red calipers, sunroof, tinted glass, power windows, air conditioning. – Slight yellowing in the headlight lenses. A handful of small chips on the hood. The interior looks new. Wheels are a little dinged up. A used car from the somewhat unloved 996 generation and you have to knock this car a bit for the Tiptronic, but the C4S got the wheels, tires, suspension and more attractive bodywork of the Turbo. – After taxes, this car would have cost over 90 grand to buy new, which further shows that 996s are the most depreciated 911s at the moment.
1983 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Hardtop 4x4
Lot # 363.1 1983 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Hardtop 4×4; S/N FJ40361576; Green, White roof/Gray vinyl; Truck restoration, 3 condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $28,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $30,800 – Troop seating in back, rear-mounted spare wheel, modern CD stereo. – Car card says former government-owned, but doesn’t say when or which government. Paint is coming off the step plates. Dirty underneath with light surface rust on the leaf springs. Dull respray with lots of light scratches on top of the hood. Very good redone interior. Paint coming off the rear bumperettes. Chassis got undercoating at some point. A very far cry from the over-restored FJs we’ve seen in recent years. This is an amateur truck restoration, which is actually ideal if you want to ford some streams and go camping in an FJ40. – FJ prices have adjusted downward, but they remain strong and can still no longer be considered cheap trucks. This was an appropriate result for an example in this kind of condition.
1948 Lincoln Continental Coupe
Lot # 377 1948 Lincoln Continental Coupe; S/N 8H181363; Maroon/Maroon leather; Older restoration, 3- condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $21,500 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $23,650– Hub caps and trim rings, wide whitewalls, fender skirts, hood ornament, dash clock, overdrive, Continental kit. – From the Tammy Allen collection. Rear fender stone guards are dry and cracking. Rusty exhaust tip. Lightly pitted rear bumpers. Dull old paint. Sound interior. Pitted grille. Very clean underneath. Not bad, but restored ages ago and due for at least another round of cosmetic attention. – Sold at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale in 2015 for $33,000, which was expensive and bordering on excessive for a car this tired. The result here in Vegas, however, was spot on. It needs plenty of attention, but will respond to every touch with gratification for its owner. A CCCA Full Classic ™ with plenty of opportunities to join like-minded owners on tours, it’s a bargain entry into the Classic world.
1957 BMW-Isetta 300 Coupe
Lot # 385 1957 BMW-Isetta 300 Coupe; S/N 499108; Orange, White/White piped in Orange; Older restoration, 2 condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $32,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $35,200 – Sliding vinyl sunroof, rear luggage rack, hub caps. – From the Tammy Allen collection. Very good older paint and chrome. Good interior. Fully restored and done to appropriate standards. Nothing to pick on, but not as fresh and jewelry-like as some of the Isetta restorations in recent years. – Sold at WestWorld in 2009 for $45,100 all-in and arguably worth no less than that – if not more – today, this represents a seriously opportunistic purchase of a potentially $50K car.
1956 Messerschmitt KR175 Bubble Top
Lot # 386 1956 Messerschmitt KR175 Bubble Top; S/N 1669853; Turquoise, Cream/Brown vinyl piped in Red; Older restoration, 3 condition; No Reserve; Hammered Sold at $26,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $28,600 – Whitewalls, clock. – From the Tammy Allen collection. Big chip right in the middle of the nose, and the front badge doesn’t fit flush to the body. Some light scratches in the canopy top. Rubber trim has come loose at the back of the canopy. Lightly worn interior. Small oil leak. Represented as a complete restoration, but the work was done some time ago and not quite to the standards of the Isetta that crossed the block before it. – Bought at WestWorld in 2010 for $44,000 and here for no more than it was worth in this condition. Ouch!
