1949 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe Sedan

1949 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe Sedan This is one of the nicest original examples to be found. With only 36,000 miles from new, this well maintained Chevy is an unbelievable time capsule. Finished in its original Texas Ivory paint with its original interior, it is a must see!! The Chevy has light patina on the paint, but nothing you would change. Equipped with radio and heater, this is one of the finest original un-restored Chevy’s we have ever seen. It runs and drives beautifully and is ready for any show or tour. Perfect preservation “class” car. This is truly one of one!! $32,500.

1950 Nash Statesman Sedan

1950 Nash Statesman Super Sedan Showing only 37,000 miles, this Nash is an amazing survivor. Finished in Midnight Black with beautiful original gray pinstriped cloth interior, the Statesman Airflyte is awesome. The excellent chrome trim shows well. This is a great preservation Nash that can be driven or shown. Equipped with the original Nash flathead 6 and 3 speed transmission with optional overdrive, it is a pleasure to drive. The original owners manual, overdrive instructions, tire pamphlet, warranty registration in the owner’s name are with the car. A great feature of the Nash was the addition of folding front seats to configure into a bed. Travelling or camping made it easy to stop and take a nap. Priced fairly at $29,900.

1953 Porsche Pre A

1953 Porsche Pre A This is a very special Pre-A Porsche Coupe. The following is a brief description of this EXPERIMENTAL car (#51465) released and sold by the Factory in the summer of 1954 to a U.S. soldier. The soldier, stationed in Germany, flew for the CIA Airline "Air America" and stayed in Germany after the war and married a German girl. He was fluent in German and befriended a Porsche family member. The company was really small at that time, and he was able to buy the "Versuch" or test car in June, 1954 directly from the factory--- after all it was test car and had no more value to Porsche. After about 10 years, the family moved back to the States and brought the car with them. The documentation includes: Factory "cardex" showing it to be a test car. Also shown is a certification letter from Porsche showing it to be a White car with red leather. The 1953 test features on the car were used on the 1954 models. They include: "Clap" windshield wipers, 5 dated and finned wheel covers, a complete tool kit, factory installed antenna, a Distributor brass cover plate, a special transmission mount in addition to the original mount still on the car, and a set of original road lights with safety bars. Luckily, the car has been in dry climates since coming to the States in about 1962. There is no evidence of rust including the very very solid floors. Repainted in 1972, the Porsche is now in need of refreshing if desired. The headliner, carpet, side panels and rear seat are all original. The front seats were re-done in red leather-- however -- the underside of them is totally original and in excellent condition. The factory changed the motor when it was sold from 32325 to 32988- which makes sense after "using up the original". #32988 is an early 1954 motor. The transmission, no.2619 is original to the car. Trades considered.

1941 Cadillac Convertible Sedan In my opinion, the 1941 Cadillac is the ultimate tour car for CCCA Events. It has plenty of power with its 346 cid L-head V-8 engine mated to a smooth 3 speed manual transmission. The independent front suspension with coil springs, plus the rear semi-eliptic leaf springs riding on a 126 inch wheelbase, supply a smooth and stable ride. This particular Cadillac has been in my hometown (St. Louis) since new. It was owned by the Lindburg family for over 50 years. I remember seeing it in their Cadillac Showroom in the 1960’s. I purchased the Cadillac almost 8 years ago and have enjoyed it on many great outings. Notice that radio pre-set radio stations are all St. Louis stations—some still in business. The maroon paint was in fantastic condition –it was applied at Lindburg Cadillac back in the ‘60s. The tan leather is also in great condition. I replaced the black hartz cloth top in 2013 as well as adding new wide white radial tires for safe driving. Come drive it and you will agree. $92,500. Trades welcome

1956 LINCOLN MARK II CONTINENTAL 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II The Continental was a styling masterpiece. They were hand built from 1956-57. Selling for $9,695. new, Ford lost money on every car to promote the Continental over the Cadillac Brougham. The Mark II was built under the direction of 26 year old William Clay Ford--- Henry Ford II's younger brother. This Mark II was beautifully restored several years ago and still a handsome car. Finished in Black with White leather complemented by red piping to match the red cut pile carpeting.a great look. Equipped with full power equipment including period ICE COLD ARA A/C installed when new by the Lincoln Dealership, it is a great car to drive and show. Note that this Continental was certified in 2007 as numbers matching by "Numbersmatching.com" This Continental (as Ford called it) has been in a private collection for years and well maintained. $63,500.

1934 Packard 1101

1934 Packard 1101 1934 Packard Eight 1101 Coupe Roadster This Model 1101 Packard Roadster is a wonderful example of Packard’s model 719 of 1934. It features a wonderful sleek body complemented by a rear spare mounted tire. The uninterrupted flow of the body accents the smooth rear deck housing the rumble seat. In addition, the very low windshield and low profile of the top stowed in a flat boot, add to the beauty of this model. Powered by a straight eight 320 CID L-Head engine, the 1101 has plenty of power for modern day touring. The engine had a recent rebuild by a respected restoration shop. Shifting is smooth and precise. New tires were fitted in 2013 and have seen little road use. Although the restoration was completed years ago, it has held up extremely well and certainly would be welcome on any CCCA Tour or Show. This 1101 drives extremely well and steers with ease. Drive it and you will want it in your collection.

Victorious V-12 - 1939 Packard Coupe Roadster | Hemmings Motor News

Ask the man who owns one." Six inconspicuous words on their own, but in this arrangement they became legendary, their method comparable with President Theodore Roosevelt's speak-softly-and-carry-a-big-stick approach to foreign policy. In the case of Packard, the soft note of its advertising copy was also a powerful statement about automotive elegance, engineering and performance, and arguably, it still is, 59 years after the last "true" Packard rolled off the assembly line.

1932 Auburn Custom 12

1932 Auburn Twelve Custom Phaeton The 12 cylinder Auburn, although in production for only 3 years, was one of the great American cars of the era. The George Kublin designed L-head V-12 is a sensational engine. It produces 160 horsepower from 391 cubic inches. In addition, the Dual-ratio rear axle was standard on Custom models and allowed the Auburn to be driven easily at highway speeds or in the lower ratio for city driving. Young Alan Leamy designed this sleek Convertible Phaeton as well as the other Auburn models. It remains one of the most beautiful designs to come out of the ACD group. Not only is it sleek with the top up or down, the windshield folds down like many sports cars. This Auburn has received a Pebble Beach restoration and was shown in 2009. In 2014 it won First Place honors at the Des Moines Concours. The Salon trim adds elegance to the car. This nut and bolt restoration included all mechanical components. It remains a stunning show car as well as an amazing road car and is effortless to drive, shifts like butter and stops easily.

1953 Nash Healey LeMans Coupe

1953 Nash Healey LeMans Coupe Production started in 1950 after a chance meeting of Donald Healey and Nash’s George Mason. The original car was steel, body by Panelcraft of England, chassis by Healey and engine by Nash. By 1952 the body was restyled by Pinn Farina and the chassis was special built by Healey. Nash upgraded the engine to develop 140 hp with its “LeMans Jetfire” overhead-valve inline six cylinder, dual carburetor creation. In 1953, with a longer wheelbase (108 inches), a coupe body was fashioned for the all aluminum main body. A tachometer, leather upholstery, and rear quarter windows made the Healey a true GT car rivaling Europe’s best. This Nash Healey was restored from an excellent original car and has been part of a private collection.

1939 Bentley 16 Cylinder Royale

1939 Bentley 16 Cylinder Royale In the words of its creator, master automobile conceptualist Gary Wales, this 1939 Bentley Royale is: “Everything in Excess, Nothing in Moderation.” Roll-Royce and Bentley built automobiles of legendary strength and toughness. More than a few R-R and Bentley chassis were repurposed with immense engines and scanty bodies. Powered by surplus aircraft Merlin V12s and similar excess, they were called Speedcars, and they were all of that, thundering examples of the concept, “When it comes to horsepower, too much is just right.” Even among those fire-breathing monsters, though, Gary Wales’ creation of the Bentley Royale Coupe deVille is an order of magnitude better. Based on Rolls-Royce and Bentley components from the Silver Ghost through the ’90, its coachwork is developed from an original Sedanca deVille body commissioned by airman and auto racer Whitney Straight, The frame is a 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith. The Bentley Royale’s engine is a masterful construction consisting of two Rolls-Royce Phantom IV 5.75-Liter overhead valve Inline eight cylinder blocks with crankshafts geared together on a common crankcase, a design akin to Ettore Bugatti’s H-16 aircraft engine. Constructed by Gary Wales with mechanical assembly by Andres Aranda, the Bentley Royale Coupe deVille is a masterpiece. A modern Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang, it has all the irrational thrills of nearly unlimited power that shakes the road and everything around it, wrapped in meticulously formed, finished and trimmed coachwork. Vastly powerful but elegantly and comfortably bodied, the Bentley Royale Coupe deVille is on-of-a-kind, a statement of Rolls-Royce Speedcar heritage and the Rolls-Royce and Bentley tradition of style, comfort and luxury. Power Rack & Pinion Bentley T2 Steering 45 Different Dashboard Instruments and Switches Carl Zeiss Headlamps. 5 Speed Rolls-Royce Experimental Gearbox 4” Exhaust with cutouts and Merlin-Style Manifolds. Elaborate, Luxurious Interior Wood and Leather Appointments. Elephant-Hide Roof Covering. Front Disc Brakes.

1941 Cadillsc 62 Convertible Sedan 1941 Cadillac Convertible Sedan In my opinion, the 1941 Cadillac is the ultimate tour car for CCCA Events. It has plenty of power with its 346 cid L-head V-8 engine mated to a smooth 3 speed manual transmission. The independent front suspension with coil springs, plus the rear semi-eliptic leaf springs riding on a 126 inch wheelbase, supply a smooth and stable ride. This particular Cadillac has been in my hometown (St. Louis) since new. It was owned by the Lindburg family for over 50 years. I remember seeing it in their Cadillac Showroom in the 1960’s. I purchased the Cadillac almost 8 years ago and have enjoyed it on many great outings. Notice that radio pre-set radio stations are all St. Louis stations—some still in business. The maroon paint was in fantastic condition –it was applied at Lindburg Cadillac back in the ‘60s. The tan leather is also in great condition. I replaced the black hartz cloth top in 2013 as well as adding new wide white radial tires for safe driving. Come drive it and you will agree. Trades welcome

1913 Peerless 48

1913 Peerless 48 This massive Peerless is powered by a 49.6 hp, 577.5 cu. In. T-head six cylinder engine. The wheelbase is a staggering 137 inches long. This particular Peerless was actually used as a power source by the La Jolla Mining Company after its usefulness as an automobile was no longer needed. It was driven to the mining operation over 90 years ago and destined to be a workhorse for the miners. In 1965, the great Peerless was discovered by a helicopter pilot and friend of a Peerless Collector. The entire story of the retrieval of the remains is described in a great story by the collector in 1966 after a huge helicopter and a team of 14 people retrieved the find. (see picutre) The story, in the HCC Gazette is fascinating to read. Dubbed “The old man of the Mountain” the first restoration was 90 percent finished 15 years later. After completion, the Peerless was shown at Pebble Beach in 1984. It was then placed on long term display in a small mining museum until 2008. It is now totally restored and ready for the Show field again.
