Bonhams returns to the Monterey Classic Car Week for the 16th consecutive year for its Quail Lodge auction, scheduled for August 16, 2013 at the Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, California.
Among the list of early consignments for the 2013 Bonhams Quail Lodge auction is a barn-find 1972 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale that has remained untouched for the last 30 years. This early Bertone example is in highly original and sound condition and has been in the same southern California ownership since the early 1980s. Another Lancia, the 1957 Aurelia B24S Cabriolet, is also confirmed. This well-maintained example is eligible for many vintage touring events.
Another offering is a 1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster, a fully-documented, matching-numbers car that benefits from a comprehensive restoration by a marque expert and a 1914 American Underslung Tourer with impressive provenance. Formerly part of the William Harrah Collection, this original automobile is the only example of its kind in private ownership.
Also confirmed is the ex-works 1964 Austin-Healey 3000 MkII ‘767 KNX’ – the sole factory entry in the 12 Hours of Sebring that year where it was co-driven by the legendary Paddy Hopkirk. Later achieving finishes in races at Oulton Park and twice at the Targa Florio, this big Healey racer is the recent subject of a Concours-quality restoration.
