Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2013 – Auction Report Page Six

1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner

Lot # 5038 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner; S/N F7FW334813; Black/White vinyl, Red cloth; Older restoration, 2+ condition; Hammered Sold at $300,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $330,000. No Reserve – Must have every option and accessory that could be bought. F-Code 312/300hp supercharged engine, automatic. – Restored better than new. Multiple award winner. Great second owner story who worked for the original selling dealer, then bought it from the first owner years later. Three owners from new. A magnificent Skyliner that’s had the kind of comprehensive restoration these cars rarely receive. It’s worth less than half this price so the next $150,000 has to be ascribed to its history, a generous increment.

1967 Shelby Mustang GT350 Fastback

Lot # 5039 1967 Shelby Mustang GT350 Fastback; S/N 67200F40018; Wimbledon White, No stripes/Black vinyl; Older restoration, 2 condition; Hammered Sold at $150,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $165,000.

LA Auto show display car. Restored like new a while ago and showing a little age but no use. Multiple SAAC winner with original body panels, engine and transmission. Documented with original paper. A real showpiece among Shelby Mustangs that didn’t bring an unusual premium for its early status or pre-production details. A good value.

With Reserve – – 427/430hp L-88 engine, side exhausts, braced roll bar, two bucket scats, 8-spoke alloy wheels with Firestone race tires, hardtop. – Without a doubt the most successful Corvette race car ever. Campaigned by Tony DeLorenzo’s Troy Productions with sponsorship from Corvette supplier Owens-Corning fiberglass, won its class in 11 of 22 SCCA/FIA races entered. 1969 and 1972 SCCA A/P Champion, 1969 and 1970 Daytona 24 Hours GT winner. Driven by DeLorenzo, Jerry Thompson and Don Yenko. Restored to high standards and better than new, except for vinyl graphics. As important and significant as any Corvette with breathtaking performance and restored to FIA configuration as at Daytona in 1972. This is the real deal and record-setting money for it.

1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Coupe

Lot # 5042 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Coupe; S/N 194379S737301; Fathom Green/Saddle leather; Older restoration, 3+ condition; Hammered Sold at $255,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $280,500.

Sound and presentable. The last L-88 built documented with build sheet, window sticker copy and complete owner history. Represented as ‘number correct and component correct’, whatever that means. Sold here in 2006 for $237,600, offered at Mecum Indy in 2012 with a reported high bid of $235,000. Less than exceptionally presented, but it’s of little significance with a car of this quality and originality.

1929 Duesenberg Model J Convertible Berline, Body by Murphy

Lot # 5043 1929 Duesenberg Model J Convertible Berline, Body by Murphy; S/N 2307; Engine # J-288; Maroon, Black fenders and accent/Tan leather; Black cloth top; Older restoration, 2- condition; Not sold at Hammer bid of $725,000 $725,000. With Reserve – – Chrome wire wheels, wide whitewalls, dual sidemounts with chrome rings and mirrors, junior Pilot-Rays, dual taillights, elaborately figured wooden running boards and slats over the fuel tank, jump seats, rollup division. – First owned by L.H. McCormick in Chicago, later through a succession of owners including (among many others) John Troka, D. Cameron Peck, Mills Lane, Richard Kughn, the Imperial Palace and Dean Kruse. Prepared for tours in 2005 by Brian Joseph with new top and upholstery later. Good paint, chrome and excellent interior. Cosmetics recently freshened and very pretty. Sold by RM at St. Johns in 2011 for $704,000, which makes its no-sale at this bid understandable. It is one of Duesenberg’s and Murphy’s most distinctive and attractive designs and is worth a bit more than the reported high bid here.

1947 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Drophead Coupe, Body by Franay

Lot # 5045 1947 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Drophead Coupe, Body by Franay; S/N WVA63; Black/Cognac leather; Black cloth top; Older restoration, 2- condition; Hammered Sold at $200,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $220,000.

Underbody is very clean and nearly like new. Sold by Brooks at Monaco in 1998 for $88,631, then by RM in Arizona in 2011 for $165,000. It’s been carefully detailed and updated since then and is dramatic and distinctive Franay coachwork that is unusually sporting and attractive for a Rolls-Royce. The price here is fair to both the buyer and the seller.

1925 Isotta-Fraschini Tipo 8AS Roadster

Lot # 5046 1925 Isotta-Fraschini Tipo 8AS Roadster, Body by Corsica; S/N 720; Red, Black/Black leather; Older restoration, 1- condition; Hammered Sold at $850,000 plus commission of 10.00%; Final Price $935,000.

Displayed at Pebble Beach in 2012. A boattail roadster of epic proportions, with competent but not concours quality presentation, the seller could hardly hope for more money than it brought here at WestWorld.
