1962 Jaguar Mark II 3.4, RHD

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1962 Jaguar Mark II 3.4, RHD Chassis No. 161828 BW Engine No. KH 7523-8 The Jaguar Mark 2, in any of its various guises, remains one of the most desirable four-door cars of all time. The combination of 'grace, space and pace' offered by Jaguar's compact sports saloon was unmatched by any rival of the era and the Mark 2 found favour with racing drivers, the police and criminals alike. Launched in 1959, the Mark 2 range evolved from Jaguar's earlier 240/340 models (retrospectively tagged as Mark 1s) but was far more than just a simple re-styling job - significant changes to the suspension set-up, including wider rear track, endowed the new car with greatly improved handling characteristics. The classic six-cylinder XK motor was available in three capacities: the 2.4-litre, with a new cylinder head, the 3.4, with a new twin exhaust system or - for the first time - the 3.8 lifted from the big Mark IX. Buyers could opt for a four-speed manual (with overdrive optional) or a Borg Warner three-speed automatic. The revised bodywork boasted a greater glass area for improved visibility in all directions, along with semi-recessed fog lights, a new grille and tail lights. Inside, the Mark 2 had a fresh dashboard layout whilst retaining the traditional timber veneer facia, a fully adjustable steering column, a centre console and new front seats with deeper squabs and folding tables recessed in the seat backs. Considered by many to be ahead of its time when first sold, the Jaguar Mark 2 remains an eminently usable classic saloon today, with excellent support provided by the many clubs and specialists around Australia.

1954 MG TF

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1954 MG TF Chassis No. HDC265004 Engine No. XPAGTF34941 Plates MG054 Currently registered in Victoria The MG TF represents the end of MG's classic T-Series. The TF roadster brought a more modern take to the TD that it replaced by being three inches lower, and sporting a sloping grill and faired-in headlights. The car's dashboard was redesigned, with central octagon gauges (good for right- or left-hand drive). Wire wheels were offered for the first time since the MG TC. Like the MG TD, a 1,250-cc, engine was initially used to generate 54 hp. shortly after introduction, however, a more potent 1,466-cc engine was installed. These cars carried 1500 badges on the sides of the hoods to visually distinguish them from the 1250s. Today, the TF is considered the most desirable of the three post-war T-Series models, and this is reflected in prices of the best cars. The MG will be supplied with a Victorian roadworthy certificate. It has 4.5 months Victorian rego. The retro plates MGO -054 go with the vehicle. It is mechanically very good, the syncrose are excellent on the gears, paintwork unmarked, seats in great condition, hood and weather gear is good. This vehicle is in excellent condition even the badges on the front add character to this MG.

1923 Chenard-Walcker Type U Tourer

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1923 Chenard-Walcker Type U Tourer Like most things of French automotive origin, this unusual and rare gem oozes of that French penchant to be anything but ordinary. It bristles with all kinds of unexpected features, maybe some would be called foibles with the benefit of 80 years of motoring hindsight, but ordinary this car certainly is not. The restoration has in itself been somewhat the same; anything but ordinary. But first we need to go back to the car's earliest days to capture its history as best is know. Its Australian life started in 1923 when on arrival from France in chassis form as the biggest model made by the French company (3 litre motor and on the longest wheelbase). It was then fitted with a splendid navy blue body made in Sydney by Properts. The cost is not known but one article on a 1924 model, written in 1958, quotes the chassis cost before body at 1200 pounds. To put that in perspective a Chev 4, ready to drive away, no more to pay, cost around 230 pounds. So even with a hefty discount or allowance for inaccuracy in that article, the biggest Chenard et Walcker was indeed a pricey proposition. The original owner is not known but somehow the car ended up in central Victoria for sale in St Arnaud in about 1934. From then on its history is well known. A Mr Davidson bought the car for his daughter who had married Archie McMaster and was living with no car some 20 miles from Hillston in NSW. Their young sons Archie Jnr and Lindsay drove the car back to Hillston and battled tyre problems the whole way. This was the middle of the Great Depression and whether tyres were not available, were too expensive, or the car proved unsatisfactory is unsure, but the car saw little service at its new home and ended up being shedded at another McMaster farm nearby. Now next door there dwelled a young precocious child who was not even 10 years old, but would ride his bicycle to this farm for a regular play in the old blue car. The year was c 1940 and that boy on the bike was a young Maurie McKenzie. There the car stayed for quite a time, but now under a wilga tree where decay took hold. The radiator was removed for a welder but had no big cast brass badge as that had disappeared ages ago into young Maurice's collection of boyhood valuables. Now into the 1950s, a prospective purchaser took a wheel off to see if he could get tyres to fit. He couldn't for they were metric and it never was returned. So rot away the Chenard et Walcker did, all through those wet years of the time. In 1960: The old blue Chenard et Walcker was still there looking rather forlorn so Maurie did the McMasters a favour and relieved them of the car for the princely sum of nothing. After all it was incomplete! The C et W was left mostly alone. However a radiator did turn up from interstate minus its badge but of course we all know where Maurie found one don't we? A rather astute local friend had been taking interest in the project and turned up one day with the missing wheel. He had spotted a big wire wheel lying in a paddock near the local tip, and remembering that Maurie needed one, took it home to see if it would fit. Low and behold it was the one that had been removed years earlier! Now restoration moved on apace as the 1970s approached. Scriders in Leeton were doing the mechanical overhauling and a chap from Sydney was staying with Maurie and doing the body work. Of course these tasks take time and progress was slow between all the commitments of a family, running the farm, rallying (a 1913) Renault and (if like the rest of us) probable shortages of dosh. By the 80s new guards had been made by a chap in ACT and a swish boat tail rear by experts in Castlemaine in Vic. At last there was light at the end of the restoration tunnel. Eventually the extra body work and detailing was done and the car returned for upholstery to commence. There new hood bows were fabricated on site (another story for later) seat bases and springs made, dash assembly fitted and wiring completed over many pleasant evenings., weekends and cups of tea. That brings us to the end of our story and the car's progress to its finality. Specifications Engine: 4 cyl 3L capacity. Non detachable head. Side valve. Updraught carburettor. Twin spark plug magneto ignition. Pressure fed crankshaft, Thermo*syphon cooling. Transmission 4 speed gate change gearbox mid mounted separately and coupled to the engine by a short prop shaft through the exposed cone type clutch.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1991 Maserati Biturbo Spyder Chassis No. ZAM333800KA190210 Engine No. 1473A1961 The Maserati Biturbo was a family of luxury sports cars, saloons and grand tourers produced by Maserati between 1981 and 1994. The original Biturbo was a two-door, four-seater notchback coupé (of somewhat smaller dimensions than the BMW 3 Series of the time) featuring, as the name implies, a two-litre V6 engine with two turbochargers and a luxurious interior. The car was designed by Pierangelo Andreani, Chief of Centro Stile Maserati up to 1981, somewhat influenced by the design of the recent Quattroporte III (Italdesign Giugiaro). All Maserati models introduced from the Biturbo's inception in 1981 until 1997 were based on the original Biturbo architecture. Among them the coupés as the 2.24v. and the Racing, saloons as the 420, 425 and 430, the convertible Spyder, the Karif, the 228, the later grand tourers like Shamal and Ghibli II, as well as the Maserati Barchetta which used an ultimate version of the biturbo V6 engine. Genuine 2 owner car, last owner about 17 years. Full service history, only 25,600 kms. Still retains its rear seat pads and original plastic on the door trims.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1962 Abarth 1000tc. Abarth became one of the most sought after Fiat tuning houses, with more race wins than any other manufacturer at the time. Using the Fiat 600D body, Abarth extensively modified the cars adding a front radiator that enhanced the oil and air cooling, mated with external full flow Carello oil filter, front disc brakes, 13 inch Campagnolo wheels, engine mods, tuned exhaust and the interior received leather trimmed bucket seats and Abarth branded instrumentation and jewellery. Well known as "giant killers" these cars are extremely exciting to drive and offer fantastic performance and handling. The Abarth 1000 Turismo Competizione (TC) represented an evolution of the 750 Berlina and 850 TC and was one of the most powerful versions of the now incredibly collectable early Abarth models. Their tiny pocket rockets with big personalities allowed you to drive on the limit anywhere, gaining lots of attention along the way. The car in question is in outstanding condition and it features Abarth instrumentation, independent pendolare coil over magnesium front end, disc brakes, Campagnolo wheels, Abarth corsa radiator/oil cooler with external Carello oil filter with temp control, Tubular Abarth seats, Abarth 70hp 1050cc engine, Abarth large capacity oil sump, Abarth exhaust and correct Weber 36DCD7. This vehicle has been subject to an extensive painstaking nut and bolt restoration with no expense spared, with high attention to detail and originality. A rare opportunity to obtain a well sorted car with great performance and character, this unique Italian beauty should not be missed.

1970 Mercedes 280SE

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1970 Mercedes 280SE VIN No. 108.018-22-050426 During the winter of 1967/1968 Daimler launched its new generation family of vehicles, called Stroke eight for the model year. The headline was the new W114 and W115 family, built on a new chassis, but the existing models were given an upgrade with a single engine, the 2778 cc M130. The W108 now included 280S and 280SE, with production starting in November 1967. These replaced the 250S, 250SE and 300SE, however production of export-designated 250S would continue until March 1969. For the W109, the 300SEL finally retired the M189 engine, and received the identical 2.8 M130. In January 1968, the model line was joined by yet another car, the 280SEL. The car had the longer wheelbase of the W109, but lacked the pneumatic suspension and other features of the 300SEL. Hence the chassis code remained W108. Performance on the cars improved. On the 280S the two downdraft carburettors produced 140 hp (100 kW) and could push the car to 185 km/h (180 on auto), whilst 0-100 was done in 12.5 seconds. The fuel-injected delivered 160 hp (120 kW), and featured a new pump which was not affected by temperature or altitude. Thanks to the air oil filter and better arrangement of cylinders, cooling and hence economy improved. Performance of the 280SE, 280SEL and 300SEL was all but identical, a top speed of 190 km/h (185 on auto) and a 0-100 acceleration in 10.5 seconds for the W108s, the W109 due to its larger weight, took slightly longer, 12.2 seconds. Australian Delivered. Three owners. - Australia delivery. - Classic example. - History file and receipt. - 98,212 kms.

1993 Porsche 968

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1993 Porsche 968 VIN No. WP0ZZZ96ZRS800141 Engine No. M4443-42R 04400-10 Model No./Model Descr. 968 111 The Porsche 968 is a luxury sports car that was sold by Porsche AG from 1992 to 1995. It took over the entry-level position in Porsche's lineup from the 944, with which it shared about 20% of its parts. The 968 became the final model in an evolving line, starting almost 20 years earlier with the introduction of the Porsche 924. The 968's styling was an evolution on that of the outgoing 944, itself styled evolutionarily from the earlier 924, but elements were borrowed from the more expensive 928 model in an attempt to create a "family resemblance" between models, and the swooping headlamp design, inspired by those of the 959, previewed similar units found later on the Type 993 911. Along with the new styling, the 968 featured numerous small equipment and detail upgrades, including a Fuba roof-mounted antenna, updated single lens tail lamps, "Cup" style 16" alloy wheels, a wider selection of interior and exterior colors, and a slightly updated "B" pillar and rear quarter window to accommodate adhesive installation to replace the older rubber gasket installation. Because some parts are interchangeable between the 968, 944 and 924, some enthusiasts purchase those parts from Porsche parts warehouses as "upgrades" for their older models.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1953 Jaguar XK120 VIN/Chassis No. 669042 Engine No. W92977 Jaguar's first post-war car, the XK120, was the sensation of the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show and has firmly established itself as one of the greatest sports cars of all time. From the stunning lines by Sir William Lyons to the legendary XK straight-six engine, the XK120 looked and performed like nothing else on the road. Very few XK120s were built in right-hand drive guise, with most earmarked for export, just 192 steel-bodied examples were delivered in Australia. As values of the XK sports models have soared in recent years, XK120's have become increasingly sought after and finding an original Australian delivery example is becoming harder to find.

Riley Kestrel 16/4 Blue Streak

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Riley Kestrel 16/4 Blue Streak Chassis No. 38KX1180 Engine No. AX 1063 Riley were early pioneers within the British motoring industry, having made the transition from bicycle manufacture to motor car production and offering their first model of car to the public in 1899. Over the next 40 years they produced a fine range of cars, sporting saloons and outright racing cars, the latter having many successes on the racetracks of the time, at speed trials and rallies, including Monte Carlo. In 1927, Riley introduced a new '9hp' engine. Over the next 10 years, Riley developed successively larger engines, culminating in their most powerful engine in 1937, the 4 cylinder 2.5 litre, which became known as the 'Big 4'. This design produced the efficiency of an overhead camshaft engine. Under the old RAC rating system it was rated at 16 horsepower, thus all models (mainly Adelphi, Kestrel and Continental saloons), produced during their short pre-war production run were known 'Riley 16/4'. The company being acquired in late 1938, by Lord Nuffield, who already owned Morris, Austin and Wolseley. Prior to this takeover, the total number of all 16/4 model types produced at the Riley factory was 314 (just over a hundred of all models were produced under the Nuffield ownership, before the outbreak of WW2 ceased all further production of Blue Streaks). There are no surviving records of the individual model numbers produced but it has been estimated that the number of 16/4 Kestrel bodied saloons built under Riley ownership is around the 110 mark. The 'Riley Register' car club for pre war Rileys, in their most recent census (November 2015), reflects just 15 of this model worldwide, although other sources suggest there are at least the same number again that still exist. The Kestrel offered here is one of those number and is 1 of only 4 known in Australia. The car underwent a full body and engine restoration, in the UK, completed in 2007 and was acquired by the current owner in 2009. The body colour is black over dark blue and the interior leather is Teal blue. The rear seat retains it's original leather, which given its age is in fair to good condition. The engine, as described above, is equipped with twin SU carburettors. It is mated to a 3 speed gearbox that has overdrive in second and top gear, giving 5 forward gears. Top overdrive provides a ratio of 3.97:1 and comfortably achieves 70mph/110kph. Based upon the previous and current owners' logbooks, the engine has completed just under 6000 miles since its rebuild. The body is aluminium clad, as are the doors and bonnet panels. The underside of the car is fully undersealed and rustproofed. There is a very large portfolio of paperwork and photographs associated with the restoration plus historical papers and an original Workshop manual (and a working photocopy).

Henry Ford Quadricycle

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Henry Ford Quadricycle This example was produced by the Ford Motor Company to celebrate the centenary of the Ford Quadricycle . The Ford Quadricycle was the first vehicle developed by Henry Ford. Ford's first car was a simple frame with an ethanol-powered engine and four bicycle wheels mounted on it. On June 4, 1896 in a tiny workshop behind his home on 58 Bagley Avenue, where the Michigan Building now stands. Ford put the finishing touches on his pure ethanol-powered motor. After more than two years of experimentation, Ford, at the age of 32, had completed his first experimental automobile. He dubbed his creation the "Quadricycle," so named because it ran on four bicycle tires, and because of the means through which the engine drove the back wheels. The success of the little vehicle led to the founding of the Henry Ford Company and then later the Ford Motor Company in 1903. The two cylinder engine could produce 4 horsepower. The Quadricycle was driven by a chain. The transmission had only two gears (first for 10 mph (16 km/h), 2nd for 20 mph (32 km/h)). The tiller-steered machine had wire wheels and a 3 US gal fuel tank under the seat. Ford test drove it on June 4, 1896, after various test drives, achieving a top speed of 20 mph. Ford would later go on to found the Ford Motor Company and become one of the world's richest men. One of three produced by Ford Australia.

This vehicle is in fine operating order and the engine is quiet powerful for it's size. It features the traditional English colours - maroon body with black guards. This car is a genuine 1929 Holden bodied Chummy carrying its original body plaque.

Mercedes-Benz W126 500SEC SGS Cabriolet

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Mercedes-Benz W126 500SEC SGS Cabriolet This Mercedes-Benz W126 500SEC SGS Cabriolet, car registration number "SGS 500", is believed to be a very early one of 64 RHD factory sanctioned 500 SEC SGS Cabriolets built between 1981 and 1983 by prominent German Coachbuilder, Styling Garages of Schenefeld near Hamburg. The cars were sold new through Mercedes-Benz dealers on special order at an additional cost of $90,000 over the base model 500 SEC which at the time cost $230,000 in Australia. Most of the RHD cars went to the Middle East and a few to Hong Kong. Around the end of 1984 Styling Garages lost its factory sanctioned status and commenced selling the cabriolet directly to owners under the model name "Marbella". Most of the LHD cars that went to the USA were sold as "Marbellas". A total of approximately three hundred W126 "S" Class Mercedes-Benz based coach built cars were built by SGS which included: 64 RHD W126 Cabriolets, 130 LHD W126 Cabriolets including "Marbellas", 57 W126 Gullwings, 1 W126 "Arrow", 1 W126 Station Wagon, 2 W126 Pick ups and 110 W126 SEL1000 Stretch Limousines. This SGS 500 was delivered new as a RHD Cabriolet through a Mercedes-Benz Dealer in Hong Kong. The early history in Hong Kong is largely unknown until the car was imported into Australia in 1995. Sporting an older restoration, the car is in sound mechanical condition and has been maintained by Gull Wing Motors in Forrest Hill Vic for the last 3 years. It has regularly appeared at Classic Car events over the last three years and is still capable of over 200kmh. This is one only two 500 SEC SGS in Australia and the only RHD believed to be still on the road world wide of about the 64 built. There are no other known Factory RHD Cabriolet versions surviving and less than 15 LHD drive ones are known mainly in the Southern USA. This is one the rarest Mercedes-Benz models of the Post War era. Reference: James Taylor's authoritative book "Mercedes- Benz S-Class 1972-2013".

1973 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible VIN No. 1Z67J3S431692 350 V8 Auto p/steering, great original condition. The Corvette is a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1968 through 1982 model years. Engines and chassis components were mostly carried over from the previous generation, but the body and interior were new. It set new sales records with 53,807 produced for the 1979 model year. 1973 started Corvette's transformation from muscle to touring sports car. A Chevrolet advertisement headlined: "We gave it radials, a quieter ride, guard beams and a nose job." Indeed, redesigned body mounts and radial tires did improve Corvette's ride, and interior sound levels were reduced by 40%. Two 350 cu in small block engines were available. The base L-48 engine produced 190 hp. The L-82 was introduced as the optional high performance small-block engine (replacing the LT-1 engine) and delivered 250 hp. The new hydraulic lifter motor featured a forged steel crankshaft, running in a four-bolt main block, with special rods, impact extruded pistons, a higher lift camshaft, mated to special heads with larger valves running at a higher 9:1 compression, and included finned aluminum valve covers to help dissipate heat.

1965 Porsche 911

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1965 Porsche 911 Chassis No. 300882 Engine No. 900987 Frame No. 911 Gearbox No. 901/0 The 911 traces its roots to sketches drawn by Ferdinand "Butzi" Porsche in 1959. The Porsche 911 was developed as a more powerful, larger, more comfortable replacement for the Porsche 356, the company's first model. The new car made its public debut at the 1963 Frankfurt Motor Show (German: Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung). The car was developed with the proof-of-concept twin-fan Type 745 engine, and the car presented at the auto show had a non-operational mockup of the production single-fan 901 engine, receiving a working one in February 1964. It originally was designated as the "Porsche 901" (901 being its internal project number). 82 cars were built as 901s. However, Peugeot protested on the grounds that in France it had exclusive rights to car names formed by three numbers with a zero in the middle. So, instead of selling the new model with another name in France, Porsche changed the name to 911. Internally, the cars' part numbers carried on the prefix 901 for years. Production began in September 1964, the first 911s reached the US in February 1965 with a price tag of US$6,500. The earliest edition of the 911 had a 130 metric horsepower (96 kW; 128 hp) Type 901/01 flat-6 engine, in the "boxer" configuration like the 356, air-cooled and rear-mounted, displaced 1991 cc compared with the 356's four-cylinder, 1582 cc unit. The car had four seats although the rear seats were small, thus the car is usually called a 2+2 rather than a four-seater (the 356 was also a 2+2). It was mated to a four or five-speed manual "Type 901" transmission. The styling was largely by Ferdinand "Butzi" Porsche, son of Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche. Erwin Komenda, the leader of the Porsche car body construction department, initially objected but later was also involved in the design.

1929 Austin 7 Wasp Sports

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1929 Austin 7 Wasp Sports VIN No. M86654 Engine No. M86654 The Austin Seven may come from humble origins, having been conceived by Herbert Austin as cheap transportation for the masses in the early 1920s, but over 17 years of production - and in the many decades that followed - developed a loyal following around the world. The first Seven rolled off the line in January 1923 with a 650cc engine, although later models used a larger 750cc unit, and was available in a remarkable number of variants. Production had reached almost 300,000 units when the last Baby Austin rolled off the line on the 3rd of March, 1939 and a good number of these were exported to Australia, where local coachbuilders fitted a range of body styles. During the late 1920s and early 1930s, one particular sports model, known as the Wasp, was offered in Sydney. For Herbert Austin, who spent his formative years working with various engineering firms in Melbourne, Australia was seen as a key export market. With its favourable power to weight ratio, the Seven enjoyed remarkable success in competition and became the inaugural winner of the Australian Grand Prix after Arthur Waite piloted a supercharged example around the Phillip Island circuit at the average speed of 56.25 mph. This car has Museum history. The motor has been fitted with a 3 bearing engine block, a large capacity oil pan, a high-volume oil pump, high lift cam, a racing high compression head, linked brakes, accessory coil stabilizing springs fitted to rear, sports exhaust and a four speed gear box. This car will do 50mph all day!

1971 XY GTHO Phase 111

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1971 XY GTHO Phase 111 Just what is it about the Phase III GT-HO that has made the car such an icon and the king of the local muscle car scene? The fact that, of the 300 original examples built, just over half survive in original condition. That it was the ultimate Falcon GT in terms of raw performance, not to mention the fastest four-door sedan in the world at the time? Perhaps it's the racing heritage - the GT-HO proved just about unbeatable at Bathurst, taking out five of the top six places in 1971, with Allan Moffat at the wheel of the winning car. Whatever it might be, for most Aussie blokes with even a passing interest in cars, the Phase III has become a legend and this ultimate status has translated into unprecedented appreciation in recent years. Based on the hottest Falcon of the era, the XY GT, complete with Shaker hood and thumping 351-cid V8, the HO option added a front spoiler and full-width rear wing to an already tough looking package. Under the bonnet (complete with stripes and lock-out pins) there were new heads and valve gear while a four-barrel Holley 780 cfm carburettor and higher compression ratio of 11.5:1 helped boost output to a staggering 370 bhp at 5400 rpm. With a choice of three diff ratios and a close-ratio gearbox optional, other modifications included thicker stabiliser bars and bigger rear drums. All of this added up to the finest handling, quickest and most desirable GT Falcon ever produced in Australia. Make no mistake, the Phase III remains a seriously fast motor car - figures like 14.4 seconds down the quarter mile and a top speed of 142 mph remain impressive even now, 36 years later. Without question the most collectable production car ever made in Australia, the Ford Falcon XY GT-HO Phase III has become a rapidly appreciating asset in recent years but slipping behind the wheel all this becomes largely irrelevant, as the cars true worth can only be experienced behind the wheel. With a 351 cubic inch (5.8-litre) V8, the GT-HO (the HO stood for handling option) was a race bred special. Based on the 1969 XW GT, only 300 Phase IIIs were built for Bathurst, with the addition of a beefy rear anti-sway bar, larger Holley carby, lumpier camshaft, free flowing intake manifold and different lifters and valves. The engine pumped out an impressive for the time 300bhp or 224kW in today's figures, but the real figure is said to have been closer to 380bhp or 284kW.

Description: 1957 Cadillac Series 62 VIN No. 5762105547 4 Door Hardtop 365V8 Auto P/steering P/Brakes original 91000 miles original paint time capsule in perfect condition all over In 1957 a tubular X-frame without side rails was adopted. This resulted in lower body without a loss of usable space. Front end styling was marked by rubber bumper guard tips and dual circular lamps set into the lower bumper section. Side trim was revised and a dual taillight theme was used. Identifying the standard 62 models were bright metal moldings, just forward of the rear wheel openings, highlighted by seven horizontal windsplits. At the upper end this fenderbreak trim joined a horizontal molding that ran along a conical flare extending towards both taillamps. A crest medallion was seen on the forward angled rear fins. De Villes had special nameplates on the front fenders. Series 62 Eldorados (as distinct from the Series 70 Eldorado Brougham) were further distinguished by the model name above a V-shaped rear deck ornament and on the front fenders. The rear fender and deck contour was trimmed with broad, sculptured stainless steel beauty panels. Also seen were "shark" style fins pointing towards the back of the cars. A three section built in front bumper was another exclusive trait of the Series 62 Eldorados, which came with a long list of standard features. A new body style was added to the subseries, a 4-door Eldorado Sedan Seville, but only four were actually sold, and it was cancelled the following year.

1968 Shelby GT-350 Fastback Mustang

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1968 Shelby GT-350 Fastback Mustang Serial No. 8T02J130881-00783 The GT350's lighter weight up front provided a handling advantage over its big-block pony sibling. With a power rating the same as the heralded Boss 302, the 1968 GT350's bigger-inch 351 put more torque to the pavement, especially at low speeds. The Shelby differed dramatically from the standard Mustang with fiberglass nose, NACA-scooped hood, side scoops, and duck-tailed rear end with sequential Thunderbird tail lights, along with aluminum five-spoke wheels and the first-time use of reflective side stripes. Inside, the deluxe Mustang interior was enhanced with a roll bar, unique 140 MPH speedometer, and console-mounted gauge pod for ammeter and oil pressure readings. Although not reflected in the final horsepower rating, the factory 351W cast-iron intake manifold was replaced by a Shelby aluminum version topped by an Autolite 4-barrel carburetor and cold-air induction air cleaner that sealed to the hood's center NACA scoop. This Shelby was part of the Hertz Rent-a-Racer program. This car was actually produced on December 14 1967, six days ahead of schedule.

Description: 1976 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 Coupé Chassis No. 9116600393 Engine No. 6660502 For the 1976 model year, Porsche introduced the Carrera 3.0 with wide rear flares, optional whaletail, and a variety of other luxury options. The Carrera 3.0 was fitted with a variation of the 930 Turbo's 2994 cc engine (minus the turbocharger). The crankcase and gearbox housing were made of aluminium rather than magnesium for extra durability. The new engine, which featured bigger intake and exhaust valves, produced greater torque allowing the Carrera 3.0 to achieve the same performance as the previous Carrera 2.7, 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 6.1 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 27 seconds. Both versions boasted a top speed of approximately 236 km/h (147 mph). The 911 Carrera 3.0 was produced in both targa (1,125 examples produced) and coupé (2,566) versions. The Carrera 3.0 was available with manual gearbox (type 915) with 4 or 5 speeds as well as 3-speed automatic transmission. This three owner car was delivered to Hamburg in 1976 with viper green metallic paint and blue/black leather interior. The car was converted to right hand drive by the second owner who emigrated to Australia from Germany in the 1990s. This Porsche has travelled 107,000km. The engine was rebuilt in 2009.

The completely newly developed 3.5-litre V8 engine with an output of 147 kW excelled in particularly smooth running characteristics and gave the car a sports-car-like performance. The new models had been stylistically refined, like the versions with 2.8-litre six-cylinder engines which continued to be on sale: the radiator mask was lower and wider, with a correspondingly flatter front end of the engine hood. Due to this characteristic feature, the face-lifted Coupés and Cabriolets were often referred to as the 'flat radiator' models by insiders. As on the Saloons, the bumpers of the Coupés and Cabriolets were now fitted with rubber strips. In purely visual terms, the eight-cylinder models did not differ from the face-lifted six-cylinder versions.

1977 Ferrari 308 GT4 Dino

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1977 Ferrari 308 GT4 Dino VIN No. 13384 Australian Delivered. The Dino 308 GT4 and 208 GT4 were mid-engined V8 2+2 cars built by Ferrari. The Dino 308 GT4 was introduced in 1973 and supplemented by the 208 GT4 in 1975. The cars were sold with Dino badging until May 1976, when they received Ferrari badging. The GT4 was the first production Ferrari to feature the mid-engined V8 layout that would become the bulk of the company's business in the succeeding decades, and was the first production Ferrari with Bertone designed bodywork. The styling featured angular lines entirely different from its curvaceous 2-seater brother, the Dino 246, and was controversial at the time. From the cockpit the driver sees only the road. It has perfect 360 degree visibility, no blind spots, upright and comfortable seating position, a real trunk, a back seat for soft luggage, and very easy engine access. Enzo Ferrari himself took a major role in its design, even having a mock-up made where he could sit in the car to test different steering, pedals and cockpit seating positioning. The chassis was a tubular spaceframe based on the Dino 246, but was stretched for a 2,926.90 mm wheelbase to make room for the second row of seats. The 3.0 L (2927 cc) V8 was mounted transversally integrally joined with the 5-speed transaxle gearbox. The engine had an aluminium alloy block and heads, 16-valves and dual overhead camshafts driven by toothed belts. The induction system used four Weber 40 DCNF carburetors. The Dino 308 GT4 was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in November 1973. The 308 GT4 finally gained the "Prancing Horse" badge in May 1976, which replaced the Dino badges on the hood, wheels, rear panel and the steering wheel. Dino was Enzo Ferrari's son who died in 1956 and his name was considered to honor his memory on the models it was placed. There were two series of GT4; the earlier cars featured a twin distributor engine and foglamps mounted in the front valance. Later cars had a single distributor engine, with foglamps mounted behind the front grille. - Australia delivery. - 67,280 km. - Full history file.

Description: 2003 Maserati Coupe Trofeo VIN No. ZAMBC38B.000008942 The Maserati Trofeo is a racing version of the Coupé that was introduced in 2003. It utilizes the stock engine that provides 420 PS (309 kW; 414 hp) due to a revised engine mapping and a modified free-flowing exhaust that uses a baffle-freemuffler. Vehicle weight was reduced by 550 pounds as a result of many stock components being stripped out: soundproofing, air conditioning, and the leather interior were left out, with the regular seats being replaced by racing seats. Carbon-fiber doors and hood replace the street car's steel components, and plexiglass replaces the side window glass. The result is a zero to 60 miles per hour time of 4.0 seconds. Top speed is 178 miles per hour. A Trofeo racing series was organized for enthusiasts, with a per-race rental charge of about $20,000. For season 2005 Coupé-based Trofeo was updated and since based on GranSport model. A Trofeo Light (or simply the Maserati Light) was also developed for use in various national and international racing series, including the Italian GT Championship, Rolex Sports Car Series, and FIA GT3 European Championship. It is distinguishable from the Trofeo by having a wider flared wheel-arches with air-exhaust behind front wheels and wider rear spoiler. - 2005 Model. - 1,260 km from new. - Full race specs from Maserati factory. - Total 28 units built from factory. - Engine computer upgraded from factory. - Carbon fiber doors. - Perplex window. - Air jacking system. - Brembo race brakes. - Full bolt in roll cage 6 point.

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 1975 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR Replica VIN No. 9115201219 A track-only version called RSR 3.0 was created to compete in the FIA Group 4 category. It was a development of the RSR 2.8. Its racing career began in 1973. In order to make the new car compliant with homologation rules, its aerodynamics had to be changed. Rear spoiler from the road-going version, commonly referred to as the 'ducktail', was replaced with a tail fin. On top of that, wheel arches have been flared. Carrera RSR 3.0 was powered by a 3-litre, air-cooled, horizontally opposed engine. It was equipped with a mechanical fuel injection by Bosch, which enabled it to produce 330 BHP at 8000 rpm. Compression ratio was also increased to 10:3.1. Twin-exhaust was borrowed from the RSR 2.8. Coil springs in the suspension were made of either steel or titanium. They were hidden behind a hefty set of wheels, 15-inch at the front and 14-inch at the rear. Power was transferred to the rear axle via a five-speed manual gearbox, which was connected to the engine with a clutch made by Sachs. Several body panels and interior parts were made of aluminium for weight reduction. As a result, the RSR 3.0 weighed just 900 kg. Adding power and getting rid of unnecessary weight made it hugely fast. Top speed was 270 km/h, whereas 0-100 km/h was dealt with in just 5 seconds. Porsche sold the RSR 3.0 to many private racing teams (i. a. Kremer or Gelo), which were successful in a number of prestigious racing series. Overall, just 110 examples of the RSR 3.0 were made. In the meantime, Porsche created a prototype of a turbocharged RSR 2.1 model, which finished second in the 1974 24 Hours of Le Mans. - 1976 Turbo engine, 3 liter. E/N: 6760100. High spec 310 HP.
