1966 Jaguar E-type Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe

We are happy to offer yet another special Jaguar E-type Fixed Head Coupe. This 1966 Jaguar E-type Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe is finished in its original color of Cream with Black interior.  It is an original California car and spent almost all its life in California and Arizona. We purchased this car from the second owner who had this car since 1973 or after 50 years of ownership. This wonderful Jaguar has only 42,000 original miles. In addition, it has the very rare dealer installed (functioning) and center console Cool Aire air conditioning system. The interior is in excellent all original condition.  Furthermore, this Jaguar E-type comes with all the original books and manuals. Please inquire for more details on the car.

1980 Maserati Merak SS

The Merak was the result of Maserati’s decision to market a lower cost alternative to the V-8 Bora. Introduced at the Paris show in 1972, the beautiful Giugiaro-penned Merak shared most of its sheet metal with the Bora, the notable difference being a buttress treatment behind the cockpit as opposed to the Bora’s complicated and costly clamshell engine cover. Cost was kept in check by utilizing a 3-liter, 190-hp version of the V-6 that Maserati had developed for (Maserati’s then-owner) the Citroen SM. Similarly, the car’s dashboard, steering wheel, transaxle, and hydraulic boosted steering and brakes were sourced from Citroen. The combination of a smaller V-6 riding in the Bora chassis allowed Maserati to nominally add a small pair of rear seats to the Merak.

This first generation Merak went on sale in the U.S. in 1974 and lasted largely unchanged through 1976. In 1977, the higher powered, 220-hp Merak SS appeared at U.S. dealers, and it can easily be distinguished from the previous car by its “SS” badging, front spoiler, flat engine cover, and an interior that disposed of all Citroen pieces in favor of those of the Bora. Some like the quirky Citroen influence of the early cars, but these later SS cars with Bora interiors tend to command a premium in the U.S. market.

We are delighted to offer this rare and stunning 1980 Maserati Merak SS. As per the Maserati S.p.A. Certificate of Origin and Technical and Aesthetic Characteristics sheet, this car manufactured in January of 1980. It was refinished in its original color of Rosso Fuoco (Red) with Black (Connolly code VM 8500) interior.  Furthermore it is a matching numbers car with original chassis number matching the original engine as confirmed by the Maserati S.p.A. certificate. We have the original Maserati S.pA. certificates from Modena Italy including a copy of the original Final Tests Data Sheet for this exact vehicle or chassis AM122/US*2580*.

This wonderful car was previously owned for nearly 40 years. The previous owner took exceptional care of this Merak SS throughout his ownership. He purchased the car on 6/14/1985 from Continental Motors of Hinsdale, IL with 7,939 miles. The car currently has 35,665 original miles since new. The previous owner was fastidious about keeping his service records and we have records going back to 1985. In addition, he commissioned a well known restoration and service shop to repaint the car in its original color in 2010 with about 30,200 miles on the car. The new gorgeous paint work was further accentuated with black (removable) vinyl decals. The interior is in excellent and astonishingly, it is in mostly original condition.

Since we purchased the car we had the original Weber carburetors rebuilt and installed a new more efficient alternator with new belts. The original alternator goes with the car. We also changed all fluids and converted the Air Conditioning to R134A, so the AC does blow very cold. In addition, we have checked the lights and tightened wheel bearings.

This Maserati Merak SS runs and drive beautifully. It handles tight and has plenty of power. The brakes stop straight with no fade. The oil pressure is excellent and we also checked the oil pressure manually and it was perfect. Furthermore, the car temperature well and does not over heat. The clutch engages nicely and the gearbox shifts smoothly.  A modern radio was installed by the previous owner and works well with the electric antenna which also is functioning as it should and is original to the car. Overall this is an investment quality Maserati Merak SS with excellent history, very low miles and originality certified by Maserati S.p.A. This Maserati is in exceptional mostly original condition and a wonderful driver car ready to be enjoyed.

 

1972 Ford Bronco 302 V8

Built as a direct competitor to the International Scout, the original Ford Bronco was initially offered in three cab types: a wagon, a pickup (discontinued after 1972), and an open model with cut-out filler panels instead of doors, to come off something as a big CJ-5. The four-wheel-drive Bronco earned a loyal following from new. Interest increased in the central plains states and the American west, while they also disappeared rapidly from the northern states, being a good platform for a small snowplow and the perfect get-around vehicle in the winter.

Engine choices were limited to a 170-cid inline six-cylinder and a 289-cid V-8 during the model’s first year of production, and a 302-cid appeared in 1969. Otherwise, minimal changes to functionality or cosmetics were made during the truck’s 12-year run.

Though popular, the Bronco didn’t have wide-spread utility or mass appeal and production figures weren’t as high as survivorship might lead one to believe. Although the open Broncos are the rarest, they aren’t collectors’ top choice since they are fair weather friends. Instead, the wagons are the most prized.

We are excited to offer this stunning and fully restored 1972 Ford  Bronco.  The 1972 Ford Bronco presented here was built on February 24 of 1972. It has the 3-speed transmission on the column and has four-wheel drive. This Bronco Wagon was previously restored and with the correct 302 V8 engine. It was finished in Red with a Wimbledon White Removable Hardtop with matching fenders flares with white interior.  There had been several driving upgrades installed which make this Bronco a wonderful and reliable driver.  The paint is excellent and the interior is exceptional as well. This Ford Bronco has no rust and is solid throughout.  There were numerous driving upgrades previously installed during the restoration, including but not limited to a better cooling system with an overflow tank, a Holley Performance Carburetor, a Performance exhaust with an incredible sound, and larger polished wheels and with MT 305/70/R16 Buckshot Maxxis Mudder Tires. Furthermore, we had a new starter installed, restored the fender flares, installed  Borgeson power steering, a  15” Wooden Steering Wheel with Chrome slots, new axle seals and a differential seal. In addition, we coated the exhaust manifolds, polished the entire truck, degreased, installed seat belts and cleaned the engine bay. This wonderful Bronco is ready for adventures or to enjoy around town.

1971 Porsche 911 S Coupe

This 911S displays the steady improvement that Porsche imparted on its highest-performance sports car in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The wheelbase of the 911 had been extended by some 2.5 inches in 1969, providing better balance and handling and with its engine output now increased to 180 horsepower, thanks to larger valves and better breathing, a larger 225 mm clutch was required. Interior fittings were upgraded as well, with a new steering wheel lock and its instruments now mounted in rubber rings. Externally, new door handles of a safer design replaced the earlier pushbutton type and the cars were delivered with full factory undercoating for the first time.

Stopping power was provided by 11.1-inch ventilated front and 11.4-inch ventilated rear disc brakes, which proved more than enough for a 2,400-pound car. It was also capable of accelerating to 60 mph from a standstill in just over seven seconds and 100 mph in just 20 seconds, as well as reaching a top speed of 144 mph. Few cars of its day were capable of matching its exhilarating performance.

The 911 S offered here is a 1971 model, which means that it is equipped with the aluminum rear deck lid that is unique to this year’s model. It is now and recently finished ( late 2022) in its original and rare color  of Bahia Red/13 with black upholstery, and its desirably optioned with Sport seats and a period-correct Becker Europa II radio.

The car was formerly part of a well-known private East Coast collection and another private collection before changing hands to its current collector in 2019 who performed a mechanical and cosmetic restoration to the car to make this car complete. It is a matching numbers car in excellent overall condition and with the original 5-speed with low original miles of 74,193 miles.  More details on this special Porsche 911 S:

  • Included is the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity for this Porsche 911 S identification number 911130087 confirming this is a 1971 Porsche 911 S with its original engine number 6310082 and in the original color of Bahia Red/13.
  • This comes with all service records over the past 10 plus years, an owner’s manual, a tool kit and a first aid kit.
  • Close to $60,000 had been invested since 2021 in mechanical, paint and bright work. All work is documented.
  • A well known Porsche restoration shop rebuilt the engine and went through the entire car at 73,911 miles at a cost of $18,235.
  • Forge Speed completed a full paint, body and bright work restoration finished at the end of 2022 at a cost of $41,152.
  • About $35,000 had previously been invested prior to 2019 going back to 2013 with all work completed by Porsche specialists. This is all documented as well.

This is an exceptional driving Porsche. It is certainly one of the nicest early 911 cars offered on the market today with its original color and is backed up with an extensive portfolio of recent work (totaling $95,000 since 2013) to make this Porsche 911 S ready to be enjoyed by the next owner.

1965 Jaguar E-type Series 1 4.2 Roadster

1930 Mercedes-Benz 260 Stuttgart Cabriolet C

We are proud to present this very rare 1930 Mercedes-Benz Stuttgart Cabriolet C. This car has been in the same family since it was purchased in Germany in 1950  and then brought back to North Carolina  in 1955. The highlights of this wonderful car and its history are as follows:

  • The Original date of delivery was May 13 of 1930.
  • Purchased by Max Garrison while stationed in Germany as a Medic in the United State Air Force during the Korean War.
  • Garrison shipped this vehicle to the United Stated in the 1950s and titled in North Carolina in 1955 where it has spent the past nearly 70 years.
  • The car went through an 8 year meticulous restoration from the late 1980s to early 1990s.
  • One family owned for over 70 years.
  • Always stored in a climate controlled environment.
  • 6L 6-cylinder engine.
  • 3-speed manual transmission.

When Daimler and Benz entered into a community of interest in 1924, heated debates between the two companies were almost instantaneous and continual. While a common goal existed between the two companies, a contentious past between them was certain to cause riffs—and it did. Both agreed the company needed to produce a midsized car to service the sizeable and potentially lucrative midsize market, along with commercial, military and government interests, but reaching that common goal wasn’t going to be simple.

The initial effort would be the Stuttgart line of cars offered in various body styles with a 2.0L or 3.0L engine. Introduced at the 1926 Berlin Auto Show, these cars would be the first automobiles marketed under the new name of Mercedes-Benz and would largely become the backbone of the newly formed company’s future successes. Filling the gap between the 2.0L and 3.0L vehicles, in 1929, Mercedes-Benz introduced the Stuttgart 260 with a 2.6L inline 6-cylinder engine. A wonderful sales success, the Stuttgart line ushered the company into a solid future, providing a chassis for a variety of vehicles.

This 1930 260 Stuttgart Cabriolet C was delivered new on May 13, 1930 and delivered to Reutter, Stuttgart for bodywork. Powered by the 2.6L engine and a 3-speed manual transmission, the car was bought by Max Garrison while stationed in Germany as a US Air Force medic during the Korean War in the early 1950s. He shipped the car to the U.S. in the 1950s, titling it in North Carolina in 1955. During the late 1980s and early 1990s, the car underwent an eight-year restoration that brought it back to an original state.

Presented in a light ivory hue with black fenders spanned by wooden running boards, the car sports a two-tone light and dark brown stripe and reddish-orange wheels with whitewall tires. Brightwork delicately sprinkles the bodywork with a chrome radiator surround, radiator mascot, chrome bumpers, windshield surround and more. The interior is upholstered in black, highlighted by an orange dashboard and wooden steering wheel. Nestled within the left and right sides of the windshield surround are semaphore turn signals. Stored in a climate-controlled environment, this 260 Stuttgart presents exquisitely well and is an exciting representation of one of the cars that made Mercedes-Benz a commercial success.
