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
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

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
The 246 GTS Dino offered here was completed on November 2, 1973, and finished in Blu Dino Metallizzato with a black Connolly leather interior. Ferrari historian Marcel Massini notes its first owner, a resident of Lausanne, Switzerland, kept it until 1983. A second Swiss owner kept it until 2011. Then it passed to a noted collector. It was recently traded to the consignor.
The car is remarkably well preserved and remains highly original throughout.
The car has received Ferrari Classiche Read More

Quite a few Land Rovers crossed the block at Bonhams’ July 13 Goodwood Festival of Speed auction, but three Landies in particular give us an interesting glimpse at the current market.
All three of the recent Land Rovers sold way over their estimates, while the 1963 80-inch Series I was bang on the money. What is it about Landies these days?
Inspired by the U.S. Army’s wartime Jeep, developed in haste and intended for short-term, small-scale production, the Land Rover Read More
