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.

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.

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.
