1956 VOLKSWAGEN “OVAL-WINDOW” BEETLE

The Beetle, officially known as the Volkswagen Type 1, was originally constructed to be the German transportation for the masses vehicle just as Ford’s Model T was for America in the early 20th century. Designed by Ferdinand Porsche, the “Volks-wagen” or “People’s Car” had to meet four requirements laid out by the German Government: to be fuel efficient, carry two adults and two children comfortably, be capable of 60mph and feature an air-cooled rear engine. Porsche and his staff tried various combinations with the aerodynamic “beetle” shape and ultimately it was the designated Type 38, with split rear windows that became the Type 60 or “KdF-Wagen” translated as the “Strength through Joy Car.”

After WWII, the now British controlled VW Factory was rebuilt and the car slowly entered mass production. The Type 1’s unconventional appeal in the traditional large car market of the United States eventually brought in strong sales figures and resulted in VW producing more Beetle derivatives, such as the Type 2 Microbus, Karmann Ghia, the Thing and the Type 3 platform of air-cooled flat-4 engine vehicles. Eventually the sales trend of the imported VW’s caught the eye of American Auto Makers and resulted in the “Big Three” producing their own compact cars. This would do little to change America’s fascination with the “Bug.”

The 1956 Volkswagen “oval window” Beetle featured here is finished in the stunning color combination of Jungle Green over a grey-beige interior. This particular example has been subjected to a comprehensive restoration and presents wonderfully today. An incredibly well accessorized example, this Beetle comes equipped with both luggage racks for the roof in addition to the seldom seen decklid luggage rack and is complete with period luggage. A recent service has been performed and this Beetle now performs as well as it presents and is sure to bring many years of enjoyment (and many miles of smiles) to its next caretaker. We are proud to offer this stunning 1956 “oval window” VW Beetle to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates the simple and rugged design of the Beetle, which has since been named one of the top car designs of the 20th century.  Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years.

1975 TRIUMPH TR-6 ROADSTER

Considered by many to be the most appealing of the T-series Triumphs, the TR6 was first brought to market in 1968.

Suspension was fully independent and disc brakes were at all four corners while steering was especially responsive courtesy of a rack and pinion steering gear.

History of the MG TF
The last MG to really showcase the marque’s heritage was the TF which launched in October 1953. Designed as a response to the decrease in sales of the TD, the TF served as the last of the T-series Midget cars before the MGA was launched in 1955. The TF featured the same frame and drivetrain as the TD, however a slight facelift was applied to the design. The front fenders were reshaped to incorporate the headlights, taking away the T-series, pre-war appearance. MG also shortened and raked the front grill, which allowed the hood to sit lower and improve aerodynamics. On the inside, individual bucket seats were now standard which helped to give the driver and passenger a sportier feel. The proven XPAG engine was given the Mark II TD treatment with larger carburetors, an increased compression ratio and larger valves, which increased power output to 58 horsepower. The TF’s increased performance combined with the classic MG style still resonates with both collectors and enthusiasts. Just over 9,600 had been built when production ceased in 1955, making the TF a cherished collectible to this day.

History of the Nissan President Sovereign
First introduced in 1965, the Nissan President was marketed to wealthy and elite members of Japan as its long wheelbase and large engine displacement meant the model was only affordable by those in the top tax bracket. Offered initially with either a 3 liter straight six or a 4 liter V8, the President featured a lavishly appointed interior featuring front and rear air conditioning, full power features, and rear seat heaters. Their legendary quality and performance attracted many Japanese aristocrats including former Prime Minister Eisaku Satō. The President would see a slight redesign in 1982 with an upgraded suspension, a larger fuel tank and modern square shaped headlamps. 1985 marked the first appearance of the Sovereign VIP trim level. By the end of the 1980’s, Nissan sought to further establish the pedigree of its flagship model by giving the President a modern redesign. The new chassis, designated JHG50 debuted at the 1989 Tokyo motor show. A vast array of new power features and amenities were added which included a Connolly leather interior as well as a passenger airbag. Power for the new car was derived from Nissan’s VH45DE 4.5 liter DOHC V8 with 270hp which was the same engine that powered the Infiniti Q45 in U.S. models. These exclusive motorcars were built in limited numbers and are considered by some to be the pinnacle of all the President models.

HISTORY OF THE MG TC
The MG TC was unveiled to the market in 1945 and was the first post-war MG model. The new MG had the same layout and lines as the pre-war TB with some minor improvements. MG widened the body of the TC by four inches which improved interior space while the 1,250cc inline 4-cylinder engine saw an increased compression ratio that and raised power output. Handling was also improved with new shackled suspension springs verses the trunnion mounted springs of the TB model. Despite the TCs’ dated appearance, the car was widely accepted, especially by American GI’s who had begun to export their cars back to the U.S. upon their return after serving in the war. Despite being only produced in right-hand-drive, the TC was exported and sold new to the U.S. market. America fell in love with the TC’s nimble handling and simplicity. The car proved that it could be easily modified for sporty drivers and professional racers. Only 10,000 TCs’ would be produced by the time production ended in November 1949, approximately 2,000 of which would be sold new in the U.S. The MG TC is the perfect combination of pre-war style with post-war performance which solidified MG’s reputation as a sports car company. Today, the MG TC is a viewed as a charming British roadster with timeless appeal. It is no wonder why examples are respected and collected in both professional and enthusiast circles.

This amazingly aerodynamic design boasts a drag coefficient of only .29, which is incredibly low, even by modern standards. Under the hood was the potent 1.3-liter, Veloce-specification twin-cam engine, which was equipped with twin two-barrel Weber carburetors and produced 100hp. While the original model was known as the Giulietta Sprint Speciale (or the Giulietta SS), a more refined version first appeared at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show. This new model was named the Giulia Sprint Speciale (or the Giulia SS) and featured the larger 1.6 liter engine from the Giulia Sprint Veloce and was rated at over 110hp.

Smaller wheels with bigger tires allowed for more refined front fenders while a now standard 4-speed gearbox allowed for higher speed cruising. The hand-built quality of the TD added to the charm and production of the model lasted until 1953. A perfect combination of pre-war style with post-war performance, the TD helped to solidify MG’s reputation as a sports car company. The MG TD is still viewed as a charming British roadster with timeless appeal. It is no wonder why examples are respected and collected in both professional and enthusiast circles.

HISTORY OF THE DETOMASO MANGUSTA
The Mangusta was first offered in 1967. Designed by the great Giorgetto Giugiaro during his time at Carrozzeria Ghia in Turin, the Mangusta showcased the classic Italian wedge shape. Featuring a heavily reinforced chassis based on the Vallelunga, the Mangusta was equipped with a mid-mounted Ford V8 behind the passenger compartment. Access was granted by a set of gullwing doors which concealed the engine and manual ZF 5-speed transaxle. In North American specification, the model utilized the 302ci (5.0 liter) V8; tuned to 230 horsepower. Suspension was fully independent and disc brakes were at all four corners while steering was especially responsive courtesy of a rack and pinion steering gear. The interior was dressed in full leather and featured full instrumentation which added to the race car feel. The Mangusta offered supercar level performance with an incredibly stylish Italian flair. Only 401 examples were produced in 1971, of which around 250 are known to still exist today. Well-kept examples have become difficult to procure and rarely come to market. As such, high caliber Mangustas are highly sought after by collectors today.

HISTORY OF THE AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000 MARK III PHASE II ROADSTER
The Austin-Healey was born from the Healey Hundred, first shown at the 1952 Earls Court Motor Show. British Motor Industry legend Sir Leonard Lord, soon convinced Healey that Austin should build the car and thus the Austin-Healey 100 was born. The Austin-Healey’s design and appeal as a true British Sports Car resulted in strong sales across the globe in the late 1950’s and early 60’s. Over time the design and drivetrain matured to the 6-cylinder Austin-Healey 3000, which was powered by a larger engine and featured a more comfortable interior, improved braking, and suspension. The pinnacle of the Healey 3000 was introduced in February 1964 in the form of the 3000 Mark III (BJ8). The Mark III featured a 150 horsepower engine with a new camshaft design in addition to larger carburetors with improved flow. The Austin-Healey 3000 is the last of the great “big Healeys” and is considered by many enthusiasts to be the best performing Austin-Healey ever built.
