Worn original interior, yellowed gauge lenses, erratic wiring, old undercoat in wheel wells. An aged but friendly driver. – Even giving this Alfa generous credit for originality it is hard to come up with this price, a car that would have been better bought in the $45-55,000 range. At this price it is expensive.
1974 Ferrari 246 GTS Dino, Body by Scaglietti
Lot # 32 1974 Ferrari 246 GTS Dino, Body by Scaglietti; S/N 08486; Silver/Tan leather, Black stripes; Estimate $500,000 – $600,000; Cosmetic restoration, 3+ condition; Hammered Sold at $510,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $561,000. With Reserve – Campagnolo alloy wheels, Michelin XWX tires, chairs and flairs, Borletti A/C, AM-FM. – Underbody resprayed over old, peeling undercoat, then driven. Good recent paint and interior. Some weak trim chrome. Engine is superficially clean, but not restored. A sound car freshened for the hot Dino market. – This Dino has no special history, nor is its early history even known until 1980. Other than Chairs and Flairs it has nothing going for it and it is expensive for its condition.
1965 Porsche 356C Coupe, Body by Reutter
Lot # 33 1965 Porsche 356C Coupe, Body by Reutter; S/N 131063; Irish Green/Black; Estimate $130,000 – $160,000; Recent restoration, 2+ condition; Hammered Sold at $100,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $110,000. No Reserve – 1582/75hp, dual Zenith carbs, disc brakes, Pirelli P6 tires, Blaupunkt push button radio, VDO dash clock, locking glove box. – In Porsche terms, the 356 C was the last of the first. It was also the most refined with disc brakes and a more comfortable interior, among other things. This one wears a 2013 restoration and still has excellent paint, chrome and interior as well as a spotless engine bay. It’s a worthy concours Porsche. – It brought a worth concours Porsche coupe price, too.
1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.0 Coupe
Lot # 35 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR 3.0 Coupe; S/N 9115609115; Engine # 1876; White, Red, Yellow ‘Cafe Mexicano’/Black cloth; Estimate $1,200,000 – $1,500,000; Competition restoration, 2 condition; Hammered Sold at $1,125,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $1,237,500. With Reserve – 2,993/330hp, FI, 5-speed, roll cage, centerlock alloy wheels, Avon tires. – Owned and raced by Hector Rebaque. 9th at Daytona in 1975 and continued racing until 1983. Freshly restored and raced at the Daytona Classic 24 in 2014, finishing 4th in its age group. Very clean, fresh and sharp. – This is a good history and a highly competitive car restored to very high standards of finish and function. It is reasonable to accept the price the bidders at Gooding’s Amelia auction put on it.
1967 Aston Martin DB6 MK I Coupe
Lot # 37 1967 Aston Martin DB6 MK I Coupe; S/N DB62770LN; Red/Brown leather; Estimate $425,000 – $475,000; Visually maintained, largely original, 3 condition; Not sold at Hammer bid of $360,000. With Reserve – 3995/282hp, ZF 5-speed, limited slip differential, chrome centerlock wire wheels, Sigma Paramount tires, Marchal fog lights, heated rear window, woodrim steering wheel, Blaupunkt pushbutton radio, air conditioning, Smiths dash clock, locking glove box. – A largely original US market car that was cosmetically redone at some point in a non-original color combination. It has otherwise been maintained but not restored, and shows 29,914 miles. Good paint with several dings and touch ups on the nose as well as a sizable bubble on top of the hood scoop. There is also some paint crazing on the trunk and a chip on the filler cap. Very good, lightly worn interior. No stunner, but an honest and visibly maintained DB6. – This DB6 was unfortunately color changed from Mink over Dark Blue to the present mundane livery that does little for its appeal. Not especially well maintained, it would have been fully valued at the reported high bid.
1994 Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo 3.6 Coupe
Lot # 39 1994 Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo 3.6 Coupe; S/N WP0AC2960RS480329; Speed Yellow/Black leather piped in Yellow; Estimate $300,000 – $350,000; Unrestored original, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $300,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $330,000. With Reserve – 3600/360hp, 5-speed, single KKK turbocharger, Bosch fuel injection, alloy modular wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport tires, whale tail rear spoiler, rear wiper, sunroof, power windows, factory cassette stereo, VDO dash clock. – One of less than 1,500 964 Turbos with the 3.6 engine, up from 3.3. Two registered owners and represented as 29,091 miles from new. The car is in corresponding condition, with one touch up on the nose and a couple of scratches on the hood. Very lightly worn interior and clean engine bay. Not like new, but a very lightly used and desirably equipped later 911 Turbo. – Low mileage, striking colors, submodel rarity and lavishly equipped, but Three Hundred Large for a car that looks like every other 911 on the road? If this is ‘market’ that standard is growing so fast no observer can keep track of it. This is a seriously expensive car.
1955 Porsche 356 Continental Cabriolet, Body by Reutter
Lot # 41 1955 Porsche 356 Continental Cabriolet, Body by Reutter; S/N 60870; Silver/Black leather; Dark Blue top; Estimate $275,000 – $350,000; Modified restoration, 2 condition; Hammered Sold at $285,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $313,500. With Reserve – 1582/60hp, 4-speed, steel wheels with chrome hub caps, Michelin tires, driving lights, locking glove box, banjo steering wheel, dark blue cloth top boot. – The Continental was a model for the American market. All it gave buyers were badges that said “Continental”, and that was it. At the insistence of Ford (which claimed dibs on the Continental nameplate), Porsche discontinued it after only one year, 1955. This car wears a 2008 restoration with a later 1600 engine and 12 volt electrical system and is very sound with a tidy engine bay and undercarriage, very lightly worn interior and very good paint and chrome. – Comes with a Porsche Certificate of [in]Authenticity, but a bent-window Porsche will always attract favorable interest, including here where it brought a superior price.
1966 Shelby Mustang GT350H Fastback
Lot # 42 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350H Fastback; S/N SFM6S717; Wimbledon White, Gold stripes/Black vinyl; Estimate $140,000 – $180,000; Modified restoration, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $125,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $137,500. No Reserve – 289/306hp, 4-speed, Holley carb, Shelby Magnum wheels, Goodyear Blue Streak tires, woodrim steering wheel, dash tach, factory radio, bucket seats. – One of 50 cars finished in Wimbledon White, much rarer than the black that we all associate with the Hertz Shelbys. Most of these cars were automatics and so was this one until it was converted to a 4-speed, then restored a few years ago. Good paint with some masking imperfections on the stripes. Imperfect fit on the trunk and hood. Lightly dinged up front bumper. Excellent interior. An impressive GT350H, but not presented to be particularly impressive to the SAAC crowd. – Not as delivered, but in a good way with a 4-speed conversion dating back many years. Competently if not assiduously restored, a car that can be driven and enjoyed with minimal concern for birds, bugs and pebbles and bought for an appropriate price.
