A Porsche 904 GTS and Ferrari 275 GTB are among early consignments for the 2017 Bonhams Scottsdale auction, scheduled for January 19th at the Westin Kierland Resort during Arizona Auction Week.
The 1964 Porsche 904 GTS to be offered by Bonhams at its sixth annual collector car auction during the Scottsdale Car Week retains its original body, engine and interior. Delivered new to Florida dealership Brumos Porsche, this car — number 98 of 106 — was put away after just a few races and then sold to a Porsche collector in Europe where it has remained for nearly 30 years. As the first Porsche to utilize a ladder chassis and fiberglass body, this model clinched a first overall at the Targa Florio, a first at Reims, five of the top ten GT placements at Le Mans, and class wins at Spa and Sebring, among others.
Another sports car at the 2016 Bonhams Scottsdale auction is a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB. A late production, long-nose example with torque tube driveline, the Ferrari is a low mileage car that benefited from a recent restoration by Mototechnique. Presented in its factory delivered colors of silver over black, GTB has spent most of its life in the United States and is a class winner at the Cavallino Classic. Red Book-certified by Ferrari Classiche, it will be offered without reserve.
Now in its sixth year, Bonhams’ collector car auction in Scottsdale will again be hosted by the Westin Kierland Resort. For more information about the January 19th sale, visit Bonhams.com/Scottsdale.
