Ferrari produced only 421 manual-gearbox 400s during the model’s 1979 to 1984 run. This makes the version highly desirable.
The one offered is even more so as it only ever had one owner. A few years after buying this car, the owner bought a V12 that was more adapted to his needs: a BMW 750. This 400i was only occasionally driven, with just 21,300 km (13,235 miles) from new. It is in strict original condition. It was never repainted and Read More
The 1959 DeSoto Adventurer convertible was powered by a high-performance 383-ci V8 engine offering 350 horsepower with dual Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetors in tandem.
The car has a push-button-operated TorqueFlite automatic transmission. This Adventurer has a dizzying array of features, including power brakes; power steering; power windows; a power-operated, swiveling driver’s bucket seat; and a power-operated convertible top.
An AM radio, clock, padded dash and unique Adventurer-specific upholstery round out the interior package. The exterior is complemented by a set Read More
Visit any of the U.K.’s regional classic-car auctions, and you’ll almost always encounter at least one big Bentley or Rolls-Royce of the 1980s and 1990s — invariably with an affordable-looking price estimate.
These imposing — if slabby-sided — automobiles are some of the last cars to be hand-built before the Rolls-Royce/Bentley split and sale into German ownership. They are all powered by Rolls-Royce’s Cadillac-like 6,750-cc pushrod V8, but that wasn’t all that was carried over from the preceding model, for Read More
The present owner of this shining Lotus Eleven is no stranger to the type, having owned and raced another Eleven.
Keen to add to his Lotus collection, he found another Eleven in the U.K., though it had been badly crashed — when and by whom is unknown. This car’s long recovery to health began in the early 1980s and included a completely new body from Williams and Pritchard. While most of the damaged panels were discarded, the owner retained the Read More
This Peugeot remains in thoroughly original condition and now shows 48,000 km (29,825 miles) on the odometer. It wears its original gray metallic paint and its original two-tone gray leather and Alcantara interior, both of which remain in superb condition with only the most minor signs of use.
With red-edged charcoal carpet, red accents throughout, and of course, the proper 5-speed gearbox, this exceptional car both looks and performs like the racing legend it is. It is offered with its Read More
The 560SL offered here is truly exceptional. It has been driven just 2,950 original miles and is offered in a highly desirable color scheme of Blue Green Metallic over Cream Beige leather interior.
Included with the sale is the iconic pagoda-style removable hard top, in matching Blue Green Metallic. The owner notes that the black soft convertible top has never been put up other than for inspection. The seats have always been covered since new, ensuring that they both remain Read More
Introduced in 1951, the Ferrari 212 was the final evolution of the original Tipo 166 model. Sharing roughly the same chassis and suspension features of its predecessors, the 212 featured a 2.6-liter variation of Ferrari’s magnificent V12 engine.
Several coachbuilders were called upon to fashion bodies for the Ferrari 212, resulting in a remarkable variety of styles that were often tailored to the demands of a specific customer.
Upon its completion, this Ferrari 212 chassis was shipped to Carrozzeria Ghia Read More
Between 1964 and 1966, just 120 of the magnificent, alloy-bodied Lamborghini 350GTs were made, and the car on offer, chassis 0343, is one of the more original survivors. According to factory records, 0343 was delivered in Grigio St. Vincent with a Tobacco pigskin interior. The car was registered on Madrid plates, M589925, and would remain in Spain for over 40 years. It reportedly was kept by just two owners and remained continuously registered on these same plates that were issued Read More
Launched in 1954, the Jaguar XK 140 was broadly similar to — although more refined than — its sensational XK 120 predecessor. The major engineering changes were confined to the repositioning of the engine three inches farther forward and the adoption of rack-and-pinion steering as used on the racing C-type. The suspension and brakes remained much as before, though with stiffer torsion bars at the front and telescopic shock absorbers replacing the previous lever type at the rear.

Presented in as-found cosmetic condition, the dust and patina of long-term static storage remain, visually conveying its nearly 30-year slumber. This 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra retains many features that are often lost to time or restoration. These include the remains of the warning sticker on the speedometer, its Beclawat windshield badge and its fuse-box covers. The chassis number is hand-etched on its Shelby American foot-box tag and remains on the hood and trunk latches and the transmission tunnel.
