This is one of six WO Bentley 4½ Litre cars assembled by the Service Department from New Old Stock and reconditioned parts in 1936.
Of the six RC Series 4½ Litre cars completed, chassis RC41 is the only one to retain its original coachwork (the other five have been rebodied as Le Mans-style Tourers). As such, EMF 113 is utterly unique. We believe it to be a matching-numbers car and doubt that another “garage find” WO Bentley of such rarity Read More
Steve McQueen, at one time the world’s highest-paid actor, a racing driver, motorcycle enthusiast and pop-culture icon, needs little introduction here or anywhere else. McQueen acquired, drove and raced dozens of fabulous cars.
McQueen purchased this Hudson Hornet 7C sedan in the mid-1970s, and it was registered in his name in August 1977. This Twin H-Power Hudson was in his possession and ownership at the time of his passing on November 7, 1980.
As a rule, it’s the overlooked cars that make the best Affordable Classics. That’s certainly the case with the Porsche 924. The more-developed 944 that came along later has completely overshadowed Porsche’s first water-cooled car.
It’s well past time to take another look and find the appeal and the value in one of the last affordable Porsches.
An inauspicious beginning
When the 924 arrived for the 1977 model year, it replaced the lackluster 914 2.0 and the 912E as Read More
This is the Formula One Brabham in which — on September 20, 1969 — star Belgian racing driver Jacky Ickx won the Canadian Grand Prix at Mosport Park, Ontario.
It is also the actual car in which Ickx finished 2nd in that same year’s Mexican Grand Prix, 3rd in the French, 5th in the Dutch and 6th in the Spanish round of the 1969 Drivers’ World Championship series.
The car offered here, chassis 006, is an early example of these limited-production coupes and is one of approximately 100 Zagato-bodied cars that were slated to be produced. Designed by the legendary Ercole Spada, the construction utilized hand-formed lightweight alloy coachwork over a tube-frame assembly. Its iconic “double-bubble” roofline is both distinctive and functional, providing extra headroom for taller drivers while incorporating air extractors to shed cabin heat during racing conditions.
This stunningly restored Sunbeam Tiger was built, according to its chassis number, in the early stages of the Mark I’s production. A tedious ground-up restoration was performed on this rust-free car with its original panels.
The new black bucket-seat interior includes a beautiful burled walnut dash with a full set of original gauges and factory wood-rim steering wheel. All chrome has been replated, including the dual racing mirrors, front and rear bumpers complete with bumperettes, gas cap, and the Read More
Many of the finest bespoke creations on Stutz chassis were produced at the Rollston Company of New York City, who, for three decades, was Manhattan’s most prestigious coachbuilder.
Rollston produced an astonishingly diverse portfolio of work, encompassing everything from fleet roadsters to massive town cars, which were all distinguished by exceptional build quality and were priced accordingly.
The Convertible Victoria design was originally developed in Europe in the early 1920s and subsequently popularized in the United States at Waterhouse.
