1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider

1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider – Estimate $5,500,000 – $7,000,000. Chassis 1073 GT; matching-numbers example is the 13th of 50 built and features coachwork with covered headlights; delivered new to Ferrari Representatives of California and has been cared for by only three owners in the past four decades. Following its restoration by Dennison International in 2012, this car received near-perfect scores at both the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and Ferrari Club of America Meet, where it took home a Platinum trophy; certified by the Ferrari Classiche; finished in metallic midnight blue over tan leather interior.

1957 Maserati 150 GT Spider Prototype

1957 Maserati 150 GT Spider – Estimate $3,000,000 – $4,000,000. Originally constructed as an A6GCS sports racing car and campaigned with success at venues throughout the 1954 racing season. The A6GCS was later modified, thus becoming the prototype for the 300 S model. Following its two-part career as a Maserati Works racing car, the chassis of the 300 S prototype was once more reworked for the development of a new road car. The result was this one-of-a-kind 150 GT Spider. Once completed, Maserati decided that the competition-based prototype was too expensive to be a feasible production car, and opted to move in a different direction with the mass-produced 3500 GT. Restored and mechanically rebuilt by marque specialist Steve Hart, this one-off prototype retains its original, matching-numbers engine, A6G/2000 gearbox, 250 F Grand Prix-type brakes and its Fantuzzi coachwork.

At the Courtland Sports Car Races, Schechter and his RSK took home an overall win, beating both Jim Hall’s Maserati 450S and E.D. Martin’s Ferrari Monza. Soon after, the RSK participated in the Nassau Speed Week in the Bahamas, racing in the Governor’s Trophy, Porsche Trophy and the Nassau Trophy. Since its retirement in 1960, it has been restored and inspected by Porsche Historian Jurgen Barth. (Photo: Mike Maez)

The car’s specifications include French Stephen Grebel headlamps, a center-mounted Klaxon horn, exposed chrome detailing, and patent leather splash aprons. In the 1950s, this car was sold to antique car collector Vernon Jarvis, who stored it in an Illinois dairy barn where it remained for more than 50 years. The car was discovered in the dilapidated barn in 2007 and has since been restored to Concours standards. (Photo: Mike Maez)
