Gooding & Company announced five additional road and racing cars that will be offered for sale at their upcoming 2011 Scottsdale Auction, to be held January 21-22 at the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale, Arizona.
These new consignments include a barnfind 1964 Shelby Cobra, a 1964 Porsche 904, a 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB, a B-Production National Champion 1965 Shelby GT350 R and what is believed to be the lowest-mileage unrestored Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster in existence. These are in addition to the previously announced Fiat 8V Supersonic, Tucker, Duesenberg Model J Dual Cowl Phaeton, Stutz DV-32 Dual Cowl Phaeton and Saleen S7.
“Our market today is ripe with exciting cars that are surfacing after years in private storage because there is a growing demand around the world for quality and originality,” says David Gooding, President and founder of Gooding & Company. “From the ‘time capsule’ 1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster and barnfind Cobra to a significant, racing Porsche 904, all these spectacular cars will be major highlights of this year’s world class Scottsdale Auction Week.”
The annual Gooding & Co. Scottsdale Auctions will be held on Friday, January 21 and Saturday, January 22, 2011, starting at 11 a.m. Guests may preview the cars on Thursday and Friday, January 20-21, from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturday, January 22 from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m., at 68th Street and East Camelback Road adjoining Scottsdale Fashion Square. An auction catalogue for $80 admits two to the viewing and auction. General admission to the viewing and auction can be purchased at the tent for $30 per person.
1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster – With only 7,367 miles from new, this remarkable 300 SL Roadster is believed to be the “lowest-mileage Roadster in existence,” says David Gooding and “an exciting discovery for Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts around the world.” After nearly 50 years spent in its original owner’s care, Chassis 198.042.10.0003020 surfaces from the depths of this family’s garage as an unparalleled ‘time capsule’ for today. Time and storage have not robbed this beautiful Roadster of its original paint, interior, Continental white wall tires, and factory hardtop. A superb and authentic example from 1962, complete with coveted disc brakes, tools, books, records and the original Bill of Sale, this car’s estimate is Available On Request.
The 300SL Roadster is unlike any other I’ve seen. On paper the color combination doesn’t sound attractive, especially with the white-wall tires thrown into the mix, but it REALLY works. What a stunner.
Agreed in full on the MB. The 904 Porsche is quite special in its own right too.
i have a 300sl roadster 61 in tha same color combination ,but these car whit only 7.367 is a dream .
