1976 Ferrari 308 GTB Vetroresina

The 308 GTB offered here has the lighter fiberglass (Vetroresina) bodywork and dry-sump lubrication of the very first 308 GTBs produced. Introduced at the Paris Salon in 1975, the stunningly beautiful 308 GTB marked a welcome return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed Dino 308 GT4. Produced initially with dry-sump lubrication and fiberglass bodywork — the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari — the Scaglietti-built 308 GTB was built in steel after April Read More

1957 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible

Patterned after other GM luxury specials, Pontiac’s Bonneville convertible was a low-production luxury liner with power to spare.

One of just 630 built, this mostly original 1957 Bonneville shows a believed-actual 53,032 miles. It was in careful storage from 1961 to 1980, when its Kenya Ivory paint and red interior were refinished to as-original condition. Like all Bonnevilles, it is powered by Pontiac’s fuel-injected 347-ci, 310-hp engine and offers leather upholstery, power steering and brakes, Strata-Flight Hydra-Matic, eight-way power seats, Read More

1966 Ferrari Dino 206 S Spyder

In February 1966, Ferrari debuted a new sports-racing car formulated for the FIA’s 2-Liter Group 4 class, with hopes of winning over the numerous privateer teams that campaigned in Porsches. Dubbed the Dino 206 S, the car was powered by the development of the 65-degree V6 engine that had been conceived by Dino Ferrari before his death in 1956.

Introduced for the 1966 racing season, the Dino 206 S appeared to be a scaled-down version of the revered 330P, even Read More

GT Sleepers for Monterey Week

Any of our three international GTs fit in at any setting, and the valet guys just might leave you parked in front

The Monterey Week seems to symbolize all that’s grand, glorious, remarkable and somewhat unattainable in the collector car universe. I won’t repeat Jay Leno’s endlessly quoted line concerning millionaires and billionaires, but you can still cut quite a dash on the roads around the Monterey Peninsula — if not on the Read More

1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale “Low Nose”

With the introduction of the new aerodynamic, Bertone-bodied Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale at the Turin Auto Show in 1957, the Milanese manufacturer offered a true alternative to the Type 750 Competizione. Lower floor pans allowed a lower roof line, and the radiator was also lowered to allow a sleeker bonnet line, which resulted in the “Low Nose” moniker.

Of only 101 “Low Nose” Giulietta SSs produced, Chassis 0061 is one of the rare aluminum versions, of which only Read More

1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS Touring

This LHD example is the 38th 2.7 RS produced, and therefore, one of the first 500s built to “RSH” specification to meet FIA homologation requirements. After having been driven to Stuttgart for weighing, it was driven back to the factory for completion as a “Touring” (Porsche Code 472) version. It was highly equipped from new, with such factory options as front and rear bumpers with impact absorbers, leather-trimmed Recaro sport seats and a rear luggage compartment in place Read More

1957 Ferrari 625 TRC Spider

To call Ferrari’s TRC for 1957 “one of the prettiest Ferraris built,” as pre-eminent Ferrari historian Richard F. Merritt put it, is surely an understatement. It is a design without fault — a timeless, downright breathtaking execution of Italian motoring passion, married to one of the greatest sports racing chassis of all time.

The Ferrari on offer stands in a class all its own. Coming from single ownership for the past 30-plus years, its presentation at auction may very well Read More

Slow to Speed, Fast to Rust

Italian sports cars quickly became successful after World War II — think Ferrari, Maserati, Lancia and Alfa Romeo — but Fiat’s entry-level two-seaters never totally captured the imagination or sales of enthusiasts.

In the 1960s, Bertone and Pininfarina slowly emerged as the top Italian styling houses, and they proved the Italians were particularly good at constructing graceful designs for small sports cars.

Yet, for Nuccio Bertone, the early 1960s were difficult. Fiat had not conveyed any interest in the Read More
