1953 Siata 208S Spider

Under the guidance of several marque experts, this beautifully restored example of the rare Motto-bodied spider benefits from a recent restoration to factory specifications. According to the amalgamated data of John De Boer’s Italian Car Registry, and other anecdotal sources, chassis BS518 was sold new in 1957 from the backyard of the Beverly Hills-based oilman Bill Doheny, who famously financed the local Siata importer (and Carrera Panamericana driver) Ernie McAfee. This late delivery does indeed indicate that BS518 might have Read More

1966 Ford GT40 Mk II Coupe

Holman-Moody was initially allocated three GT40s for the 1966 season: chassis P1016 (the car offered here), P1031 and P1032. Although the chassis numbers were among the sequence used for production GT40 road and racing cars, they were each built to new Mk II specifications. The GT40 Mk II was the product of Kar Kraft, Ford’s stateside sports car facility, which took the initially British-built GT40 and problem-solved its weaker aspects. The chassis was made stiffer from thicker-gauge steel, and it Read More

Subaru Climbs Out of the Econobox

Subaru changed their thinking in the early 1990s — away from funky econobox subcompacts and towards performance and comfort. In so doing, the company ushered itself into a period of commercial and enthusiast success that continues to this day.

Now that 25 years have gone by, Subarus of the early 1990s are moving into collectible territory, starting with the upscale SVX coupe offered from 1992 to ’97.

The SVX stands apart from the main line of Subaru production and development. Read More

Ten Years Stuck in a Legal Quagmire

More than nine years ago, “Legal Files” (December 2008, p. 26) reported about the seizure of a 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Pinin Farina Series I cabriolet, chassis 0799GT, from the Sharon, CT, home of noted collector Barney Hallingby.

Hallingby got the car back after about a year, but the litigation over its ownership has just ended — or has it? With the assistance of Hallingby and his lead counsel, Denver’s Lawrence Treece, we are now able to tell the full Read More

The 4-Door Key to the Magic Kingdom

I’ve known Brad Miller for 20 years. We have many mutual friends, and his wife, Nancy, and I serve together on the board of directors of Oregon Ballet Theatre.

Brad, who’s a successful real-estate investor, and Nancy keep a barge in France in which they ply the canals of Europe several months each year.

He’s always been interested in sports cars, had a variety of late-model Porsches over the years and recently bought a 2010 Carrera S cabriolet.

He’s often Read More

1961 Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato “2 VEV”

Bonhams is delighted to offer this ultimate, individual Aston Martin Zagato to the car-collecting world. This competition coupe — always known by its distinctive U.K. road-registration number “2 VEV” — is simply the best known and most charismatic of all Aston Martin DB4GT Zagatos.

This ultimate Zagato variant, the 1962 “Manage Project 209,” was essentially a development prototype — sharing a near-identical new chassis structure to the DP214 Works-run “Project car” design then forthcoming for the Aston Martin factory team’s Read More

1970 Porsche 914/6

This 914/6 is a rare 2-liter, 6-cylinder Porsche version developing 110 hp. First registered on July 1, 1970, it is, like most 914s, of American origin.

As confirmed by its Certificate of Authenticity, our 914/6 is in its original color configuration, with its very 1970s “Orange Signal” paint (1410) and black imitation-leather interior. It is also equipped with the 914-6 GT kit with wide wings for a more aggressive look. Between the end of the 1990s and the beginning of Read More
