  • 1963 Porsche 356 Carrera 2 Coupe

    POA

    1963 Porsche Carrera 2 Coupe by Reutter VIN: 120351 The Carrera 2 was an amazing advancement when it arrived in 1961, and the most expensive car Porsche had ever built. The star of the show was the jewel of an engine that resided in the back of the car: a two-liter, quad-cam masterpiece that put out 130 horsepower. This example has been meticulously mechanically and cosmetically restored by Road Scholars in North Carolina. They took 120351 down to its bare shell and painted it in its factory correct slate grey. Autobahn Interiors took the Carrera's original interior and recovered its correct hue in red leather. The engine was rebuilt by four-cam expert, Chris Powell, of Chris's German Auto Service. While not original to the car, the Type 587/1 engine is correct to a 1963 Carrera 2. All the original components on car were completely restored before being reinstalled. Every system was gone through and examined for functionally and correct appearance. Completed in 2008, the car would go on to win the Zuffenhausen Award (296.2 points out of 300) at the 2009 Porsche Parade. Here is an excellent opportunity to own a mechanically and cosmetically correct example of the rare two-liter, fou

Once arriving at the Canepa facility the work began to federalize and update the 959. The engine system was spec'd to meet Federal and California emissions requirements. This included eliminating the stock sequential turbo system and installing an all-new twin turbo system, including Garrett ball-bearing turbos, re-designed wastegate, upgraded fuel system, complete new stainless steel exhaust system with dual catalytics, EGR, sequential engine management system with ADL, F1 technology engine wiring harness, high output ignition system, upgraded alternator charge system and battery module, air pump

    POA

    1956 Austin-Healey 100M VIN: BN2-L231790 The beautiful example presented here is an authentic factory built 100M Le Mans roadster, confirmed as such by the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate. A mere 640 100M Le Mans cars were produced by the factory. These are not to be confused with those converted by dealers with an available option kit containing many, but not all of the significant upgrades. The Worldwide Austin-Healey 100M Le Mans Register states that fewer than 150 factory cars are known to exist today. Built on April 12th 1956 as a North American Export car, this left-hand drive Austin-Healey has spent most of its life in California with three owners. The second owner from Saratoga, CA owned the car from the early 70s, and he sold the car to the third owner as a restoration project. The third owner finally got around to having the car professionally restored in 1997. Wellington Marsh of Spider Auto Works in Fresno, CA set about a two year, frame-off restoration. The original engine was irreparable, so a correct period 100 motor was sourced and rebuilt. It was upgraded with an aluminum Weslake cylinder head, as used in the 100S race car.

    1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 VIN: SFM5S517 This blue striped beauty is number 517 of the 562 Shelby Mustang GT350s built in 1965. The smallest and lightest of the GT 350 models, the 2-seater fastback came with the ‘Cobra hi-riser' K-Code 289ci, 306 hp V8 attached to a 4-speed manual transmission. As with all 1965 GT350s, 5S517 is painted Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue rocker stripes. It has the optional Le Mans top stripes, also in Guardsman Blue. Finished in July of 1965, 5S517 remained in Shelby American's possession until January of 1966 when the car was finally sent out into the world to find its first owner. It found a home in the spring of 1966 with Fred H. Thompson of Jackson, MS. After a couple years of use Fred fancied a 1962 Corvette belonging to Ronnie MacDowell, also of Jackson, MS and traded the car straight across. MacDowell got the itch less than a year later, and 5S517 was swapped again, this time to Mississippi lawyer and racer Sam E. Scott for a 1967 Shelby GT350 #097. Scott was a partner with Car and Driver editor William Jeanes in the legendary Southern good times racing team, Bolus & Snopes. Known for their lighthearted attitude towards professional racing,

    1955 Lancia Aurelia B24S Spider America Chassis: B24S 1077 Engine: B24 1098 This B24S Spider America is a very special example that possesses an unbroken chain of ownership, the most desirable options, and an outstanding concours-quality restoration. The history of B24S 1077 can be traced back to July 1955, when it was sold to its first owner, Luigi Bosisio of Milan. A well-known gentleman driver, Bosisio was a frequent competitor in major Italian events throughout the early 1950s and owned a number of outstanding sports cars, including a Lancia Aurelia B20 GT, Fiat 8V, Maserati A6GCS, and a Zagato-bodied Ferrari 166 MM. After a short period in the care of Bosisio, the Spider America was sold to Roberto Longhi who, in turn, sold it to Santino Bertele. In February 1958, Sig. Bertele sold the Lancia to Federico De Gregorio. The Spider America's fifth owner, Gianni Savoia of Verona, purchased the car from Sig. De Gregorio in the early 1960s and retained it until 1983, when it was sold to a local classic car dealer. Later that year, the B24S was sold to American enthusiast Richard Citron but was stored in Italy and never exported. In 1985, famed Formula One team director Jean Sage acqu

    1989 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition VIN: ZA9CA05A4KLA12514 An icon of automotive design, the Lamborghini Countach rewrote the rules by which all supercars where measured. This 9,429-mile 25th Anniversary edition expresses Horatio Pagani's interpretation of the striking Marcello Gandini design. A very well kept collector car, in 2007, at 14,463 km, the Countach had its complete fuel system refurbished from the gas tank to the fuel injectors, as well as the brake calipers rebuilt and brake system restored, and a new alternator and climate control module installed representing over $10,000 worth of work. Since arriving at Canepa the Countach has been completely cosmetically detailed and mechanically serviced. The engine was tuned, and every mechanical system in the car was evaluated and repaired if necessary. Over 200 hours was spent on the exterior and interior detailing alone. No expense was spared on this low mileage car, and the Countach has received anything required to bring it to 100% condition. As it sits now the Countach is impeccable both mechanically and cosmetically. And for those who miss the rear wing, have no fear ... the car comes with its original rear

    POA

    1959 Lister-Chevrolet Costin BHL 121 In all of vintage racing, there is no more desirable or collectible category of cars than the front-engined sports racers that ran in International and SCCA competition from the mid 1950s into the early 1960s. As a group, they embody the beautiful shapes, wonderful sounds, and exhilarating performance that defines historic racing. During that era probably the most respected and successful independent manufacturer was Lister of Cambridge, England. In the early 50's, out of a personal love for racing, Brian Lister steered his third generation engineering and fabrication company into building race cars. Beginning with MG and Bristol powered sports cars the young team immediately made a mark on the European racing scene. After a fire at Jaguar's Browns Lane Plant destroyed the competition department in February 1957, Lister was there to pick up the pieces. Now with a supply of Jaguar D-Type engines the firm's cars really started to dominate racing in Europe. In the US, Lister's cars were fitted with Chevrolet V8s by the likes of Briggs Cunningham, Jim Hall, and Carroll Shelby. By 1958 Lister was a force to be reckoned with on both sides of the pond.

This Berlinetta Boxer is a stellar survivor, preservation class example, which has remained completely unmolested over the years.

He owned the car for last two years and purchased it from Dave Helms of Scuderia Rampante in Erie Colorado. As part of the purchase agreement the engine was removed and received a top end rebuild and full service. The troublesome sodium filled valves were replaced with stainless, and upgraded headgaskets were fitted.

The roadster must have been an exotic sight sitting on the show room floor of Anchorage Studebaker, Packard, Mercedes-Benz. The lucky man who drove away with the rare treasure was Dr. William Sedwick. For the next 42 years the car would make a welcome fair weather traveling companion through the beautiful Alaska countryside for Dr. Sedwick and his wife, driving the 65 miles from Anchorage to their summer vacation home on Nancy Lake. It is believed that early during Sedwick's ownership that the original cast-iron engine failed and a factory replacement was installed. The replacement engine would be the more advanced, aluminum block version of the W198 engine that came out in 1962. This engine change would give the Roadster the same lighter front end, improved handling, and higher performance that is shared with the final 210 roadsters from late 1962-1963. In 2003, after only 45,000 miles, the car moved on to a new owner, Gordon Apker of Seattle, Washington. Mr. Apker enjoyed the 300 SL for one year before deciding to press

Originally used for touring early on, and in recent years exercised only on Sunday morning drives to church, the 40,747 miles is original and correct.

Exhumed from long-term storage in a garage in New York in 2010, this Roadster had been in single-family ownership for over 50 years. With just over 15,000 original miles, the matching-numbers car was complete and undisturbed with its original hardtop, tools and copies of build sheets. According to copies of the Mercedes-Benz Wagenkarte (build sheets), this roadster was completed at the Stuttgart factory on February 9, 1960, in a very rare and fashionable color combination of Blue Gray (DB 166) over a natural leather interior. Both the wheels and the optional hardtop were painted in the same shade, and the car was given some special features. As noted on the Wagenkarte, this 300 SL was delivered as a show car for display at the 1960 Copenhagen Motor Show. As a show car it differed from stock examples with polished intake runners, polished and chromed hardware in the engine bay, along with a gloss valve cover.

    The Porsche 911 series 993 were built from 1995 thru 1998, and are the last of the air-cooled 911's. The Carrera S (C2S) built only from 1997 thru 1998 is the most highly sought after version of the Porsche 993. With the Turbo factory wide body and the Carrera's normally aspirated engine the C2S was a pure sports car without the complication and weight of turbocharging and all-wheel drive. The driving experience is second to none, with great torque, lighter weight, and Turbo handling lending itself to amazing drivability. Only 759 C2Ss were sold in the US in 1997 making this a very rare late model Porsche. This example was first sold on April 21st 1997 in Birmingham, Michigan. Since that date this Porsche Exclusive-Programme ordered car has only accumulated 11,787 documented miles. Now at Canepa this original car has been mechanically and cosmetically inspected, and has received a complete concours detail. This rare C2S comes with its original books, jack, tools, spare and compressor. Whether to be kept as a future collectable, or to be enjoyed as a daily driver the C2S is ready for the road.

    1965 Porsche 356 Cabriolet VIN: 161539 Originally imported to Teaneck, NJ in 1965, the car's first owner was Jean A Giebink from Cleveland Heights, Ohio. She was getting her graduate degree in Social Administration at Case Tech and used a government stipend to help buy the Porsche. The car proved too expensive for her, and it moved onto another owner around 1968. In doing our research on this car we were actually fortunate enough to speak with Ms. Giebink and get this story directly from her. When the Cabriolet first arrived at Canepa in 2008 it was already restored in its beautiful Champagne Yellow paint and black leather interior. While not an original SC car, the Cabriolet has a period correct SC powerplant rebuilt to stock specifications. We put the car through the Canepa Difference process, and it was sold to a collector in the Northwest shortly after. In the past 8 years, the owner only put on a careful 3,000 miles, while maintaining and storing the vehicle perfectly. Now back at Canepa the Cabriolet has once again passed through our meticulous mechanical and cosmetic inspection, and is ready to show, or put the top down for a spirited summer drive.

As with all the 29 US bound 959S this example was not authorized for import by the DOT after a failed attempt to import them as track cars. It would be kept in France during its first years. 5021 was purchased by a Mr. Gabel of Berlin, Germany in 2008 at 1,430 miles.

This example was finished at the factory on 5/5/1964. It would be imported to the US from Germany in 1976 by then owner, Lieutenant Colonel Fromm of Hartford, CT. At that point the car's original 4-cam had been lost to history. Fromm would put the car up for sale in 1977, and it would move on to Rick Cool of Fairfax, VA. He would own the car for only a short time, and the Cabriolet would move on to Rusty Ferrell of Utah in 1982 for $5000.

The accident and rust free coupe was disassembled in 1989 by then owner, Steve Serrels of Orange County, CA, and stripped down to its component parts for a nut and bolt restoration. Serrels, who is recognized as one of the finest painters in California, did the body and paintwork. As it is with many ambitious restorations, this project stalled, and by the late '90s the car had been stored away in a climate-controlled garage. In 2012 Serrels' friend Daniel Landeros, who is well known for finishing Mercedes restoration projects, resurrected the enterprise. Over the next 8 months the 250 SE was reassembled and completed. Every part that was not up to concours standards was replaced with either NOS parts, or new parts directly from Mercedes-Benz. Chrome plating was done by Christensen Plating, famous for several Pebble Beach winners over the last 40 years, and the Macassar ebony woodwork was restored by Madera Concepts.

    1967 Porsche 911R Prototype VIN: 307670 This 911R Prototype is one of the most significant Porsches ever built. It marks the beginning of a 911 racing dynasty that would span decades and include multiple wins at Le Mans, Sebring, and Daytona. In 1967, Porsche pulled four examples of their new 911S off of the production line and set about making racecars out of them. The 911R was born. These four prototypes, known now as R1, R2, R3, and R4, were to be the beginning of the homologation of a 911 racecar. In fact, after the prototypes only 20 production versions would ever be made. It would not be until the 1973 911 Carrera RS that the homologated 911 racecar would take the world by storm. The 911R initial purpose was to demonstrate how much weight could be extracted from a production vehicle. While the production 911S weighed in around 2300lbs the R came in just over 1800 lbs. This was achieved by the fitting of GFK lightweight fiberglass doors, front and rear decklid, and bumpers. Aluminum hinges were used on the decklids and doors. Thinner steel was used throughout the body. There was no undercoating or sound proofing. Plexi window were used with manual pull straps. It was the ultim

He would keep the car for the next 35 years. During that time he would only drive the car 7,295 miles, all the while keeping extensive records of its care and maintenance. The care included anything the Turbo needed during that time, including fluid changes whether car needed them or not. We have never run across a car with as few miles that has been so fanatically serviced. The only modifications to the car were made to it when it was delivered by the dealer in 1979. They included the addition of H-1 European headlights and stainless steel headers, which are on the car to this day. The Turbo has been in the hands of a couple of collectors in the past three years who continued its meticulous service including a full air-conditioning overhaul. This 1979 model benefits from the significant upgrades made in 1978: enlarging the engine to 3.3 liters; adding an air-to-air intercooler which helped increase power output to 296 hp; the rear 'whale tail' spoiler was re-profiled and raised slightly to make room for the intercooler; and Porsch

    1977 Porsche 934.5 IMSA VIN: 9306700180 In the late 1970's the technology of racecars was changing very fast. Racing organizations such as IMSA were re-writing rules to allow new cars to race and owners were putting a lot of pressure on the factories to supply them with the latest evolution as fast as possible. The Porsche 934 and in particular this 934 1/2 is a prime example of the intense competition in world sports car racing at that time. Porsche's street car, the 911 Turbo, was reconfigured for racing in two FIA categories; as the 934 for Group 4, and as the 935 for the faster Group 5. In the US the 934 was accepted in the SCCA Trans-Am in 1976 but not into IMSA until the following season. The 1977 IMSA rules allowed the 934 to be even more heavily modified using some 935 parts. The Porsche factory created an IMSA only version called the 934-1/2 late in 1976. The first race of the IMSA season is always the 24 Hours of Daytona held in January so the factory was under great pressure to get cars done and delivered in time. Ted Field's Interscope Racing Team had ordered two new 934.5s for the coming season but they were not going to be ready until later in the year. Under pressure

In September 2010, the car won the Austin-Healey concours class at British Invasion XX in Stowe, Vermont. In 2011, under the new ownership of Ray D'Ardenne the car won Gold Level Certification at the Healey Conclave in Colorado Springs. This car may have a Gold Level Certification, but it is not a trailer queen. Being a 1960 it is eligible for many of the great vintage tours, and this BN7 successfully completed the Colorado Grand in 2013 as well as the Copperstate 1000 in 2014. The car's most recent owner has focused on both the drivability and concours competiveness. In the past three years he has rebuilt the overdriv

    POA

    2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 VIN: WP0AF2A9XGS192635 Porsche launched the RS version of the outstanding 911 GT3 at the Geneva Motor Show in 2015. The 3.8-litre unit found in the 911 GT3 was replaced with a normally aspirated 4.0-litre unit with 500 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a seven-speed PDK. The upgraded drivetrain delivers 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds and 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) in 10.9 seconds. Compared to the 911 GT3, the front fenders are now equipped with louvers above the wheels and the rear fenders now include Turbo-like intakes, rather than an intake below the rear wing. The roof is made from magnesium, and the decklid and trucklid are carbon fiber. The interior includes full bucket seats (based on the carbon seats of the 918 Spyder), carbon-fiber inserts, lightweight door handles and the Club Sport Package as standard (a bolted-on roll cage behind the front seats, preparation for a battery master switch, and a six-point safety harness for the driver and fire extinguisher with mounting bracket). The 991 GT3 RS also comes with functions such as declutching by "paddle neutral" - comparable to pressing the clutch with a conventional manual gearbox -

    POA

    1965 Chevrolet Corvette VIN: 194375S112309 Built by Chevrolet on March, 13th 1965, this Sting Ray was sold new on April 1st 1965 at Brackin Chevrolet in Linderwood, North Dakota to Donald M. Wohlwend of Seattle, Washington. It was ordered in rally red paint with the 350 hp V8 engine, 4-speed manual transmission, telescopic steering wheel, positraction axle 370R, quick take off wheels, inside no-glare mirror, back up lamps, am/fm radio, and transistor ignition. All these options would raise the cost of the Coupe from the base price of $4321.00 to a final sticker number of $5,423.70. The Corvette would spend the next few decades in the care of Mr. Wohlwend in Seattle. He kept all of the original sales paper work, registrations from 1965-1987, window sticker, protect-o-plate, even his original Sting Ray brochure and gas receipt from the '60s-'70s. From the condition of these records, and of the car itself we can safely assume Mr. Wohlwend was a meticulous type of person when it came to his cars. After his long-term ownership the Corvette was in the possession of a couple of collectors in Washington State who safely guarded the car's originality and condition. The January 1965 issue of

    1964 Shelby 289 Cobra VIN: CSX 2518 CSX 2518 was originally billed to Shelby American on 7/21/64, and later shipped to LA aboard the SS Dongedyk on 7/30/64. Once completed at Shelby American the car was invoiced on 11/3/64 to Reynolds Motors of Syracuse NY for $6,150.05. CSX 2518 would next appear in Colorado in June of 1980 under the ownership of Ray Danton. He would bring 2518 to Mike Dopudja of Mike's Performance Headquarters in Englewood, CO in 1981 for restoration and race prep. Dopudja, a master fabricator, is known for having finished the famous Shelby Type 65 Daytona Super Coupe, and for prepping the Shelby Can-Am Cobra. Danton would race the car at the Atlanta Vintage Grand Prix at Road Atlanta in 1982, as well as showing it at the Old Care Council Show in Denver, CO. In late 1985 he would put the Cobra up for sale for $65,000, but it wouldn't be until December 15, 1988 that John Baldwin of Covington, LA would purchase the car. Baldwin would enjoy CSX 2518 as a road car for most of the next decade, taming the car of its racing heritage and make it the streetcar it is today. The car would be repainted its beautiful Guardsman blue during his ownership. He would comment that,

  • 1963 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster

    POA

    1963 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster VIN: 198042-10-003257 The last run of the legendary 300 SL Roadster happened in January and February of 1963. Twenty-six cars would be built in those two months, with the last six built in February. Chassis 3257 was completed the day before the factory closed on February 7th 1963, making it the penultimate 300 SL. Being the second to last 300SL means that this car benefits from every improvement ever made to the 300SL platform, including disc brakes and the very rare, all-alloy engine featured only in the last 200 cars. 3257 was delivered from the factory in white with a red leather interior, and black convertible top. What makes this 300SL's early history immensely interesting is what happened to the car in 1963. Fresh from the factory it was sent to Mercedes in Salzburg, Austria. Research indicates that the car did not sell on its initial outing and was returned to the factory for upgrades. Reasons might have been that this 300SL was rather unadorned, and the new 230SL that had been released in 1963 was much more affordable. The result of this return to Stuggart was a second build sheet for 3257. Obviously aimed for the US market, the car was fit

    POA

    1981 Kremer Porsche 935 K4 IMSA GTP Chassis: 935-K4-01 During the mid-70s the Porsche factory reigned supreme with dominate performances from their rugged turbo-powered production racecars. By 1979 the factory began to switch its efforts to the new 936, 956, and 962 prototype, non-production based racing cars. This change spelt the end for the factory Porsche 935. However, a demand still existed for the continued development of the ferocious 935. Fortunately some years earlier Porsche had given its blessing to a number of racing teams with close ties to the factory to purchase components and drivetrains, and then designed and produced their own upgraded chassis and bodywork. While these newly constructed vehicles were still generally referred to as Porsche 935s, in reality, they were entirely new designs that advanced the 935 concept to a new level of speed and sophistication. The pinnacle of these independent efforts was the overall win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1979 by the Kremer 935 K3, the last production based car ever to win overall at Le Mans. The Kremer Brothers of Cologne, Germany had enjoyed a close relationship with the factory since 1970, and were allowed to proceed

    POA

    1980 BMW M1 VIN: WBS59910004301140 The BMW M1 was the first production car from BMW Motorsport. Clad in Italian bodywork by Giorgetto Giugiaro, and built by German specialty coachmaker Baur, this example of the E26 was imported into the US on March 27, 1980. DOT compliance testing soon followed in Los Angeles on May 25,1980, where it passed with flying colors. Its first owner was Kenneth Lloyds of Key Biscayne FL, who owned the car until 1986 when it was purchased by David Coffin of Sunapee, NH with only 8,778 km (5,454 miles) on odometer. Coffin, a car aficionado and collector, used the car sparingly for the next ten years. In 1996 the car moved on to a new owner, Robert Greene of Santa Cruz, CA with 12,162 km (7,557 miles) on odometer. Knowing the collectable value of his M1, Greene put the car away in storage, only taking it out to have it inspected and smogged. The result of this careful preservation was that in 2012 this E26 had only 12,237 km (7604 miles). The M1 has spent the last three years in the private collection of a BMW dealer in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and has covered only 800 miles since 2012.

    POA

    1970 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am VIN: 72AS18 In the days before our modern 186-mph Y-rated tires, street tires were street tires, and race tires were race tires, and never the two shall meet - until the T/A. The B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A was the first American-made tire that was DOT rated, and also had SCCA approval for track competition. In order to prove the new tire had what it took, B.F. Goodrich looked for a team and a series to run a street tire in professional competition. They found a perfect partner in Terry Godsall and Jerry Titus' T/G Racing. They had built a trio of Pontiac Firebirds for the 1970 season. At the end of the season papers were signed, and the Firebirds became Tire Birds. This car was the third of three cars built by Jerry Titus' T/G Racing for the 1970 Trans-Am season. Driven by Canadian champion John Cordts, Don Pike, and Larry Dent, this car was raced in Trans-Am, the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, and SCCA events. B.F. Goodrich took stock T/As and shaved off half the tread and had them put on the 3,200 lbs racecar. This Firebird eventually became the first production car to win a race using radial tires with a class win at Watkins Glen. At t

The car's first owner would keep the car for the next 31 years servicing it regularly and keeping extraordinary care of the car, as documented in over 20 years of service records and hand written notes. Highlights include the 3.5 receiving a complete engine rebuild in November of 1988 at 108,591 miles that included pistons, valves, and rebuilt heads. In 1991 the transmission was replaced at 112,489 miles. Dozens of records refer to routine maintenance on the suspension, brakes, air conditioning, electrical, and other systems. The next owner, also from Southern California, obtained the car in 2002 and would keep the car as the valuable collectable it had become. Driving it less than 5,000 miles and keeping the car well stored and maintained, he would continue the careful stewardship of this beautiful Mercedes until 2015. Since arriving at Canepa the 3.5 has been completely revived mechanically and cosmetically.
