1967 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE

The Beetle, officially known as the Volkswagen Type 1, was originally constructed to be the German transportation for the masses vehicle, the same way 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: be fuel efficient, carry two adults and two children comfortably, be capable of reaching 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 World War II the then British-controlled VW Factory was rebuilt and the model 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 Volkswagen 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 Volkswagens caught the eye of American Auto Makers and resulted in the “Big Three” producing their own compact cars. This would do little to change the fact that the American Public had become smitten by the “Bug.”

1967 was the final year for what many Volkswagen historians refer to as the “classic” Beetle. The iconic US specification “over rider” or “towel rack” bumper design were discontinued for the 1968 model. Upfront single beam headlights were now standard as was a 12 volt electrical system for the first time. A dual circuit brake system was also standard while numerous body panels including the hood, decklid and front fenders are specific to the 1967 model year. This combination of updates, features and “classic” Beetle appearance has led many VW enthusiasts to consider 1967 the best year for the Beetle and examples are highly sought after by both collectors and enthusiasts worldwide today!

This particular example has been subjected to a complete, body-off frame restoration and presents wonderfully today.

History of the Ferrari 250 GTE

The Ferrari 250 GT 2+2 or “Gran Turismo” was unveiled the public at the 1960 Paris Motor Show and was the first large scale production of a four seater Ferrari. The Pininfarina design achievement utilized the same 2600mm wheelbase as the 250 GT Coupe and Cabriolet, however to configure it as a true 2+2 the new body was 300mm longer, 60mm wider and sat nearly 50mm lower than its predecessor. Still utilizing that classic Ferrari profile with a long hood and short tail connected by a sloping roof line, the 250 GT 2+2 was also referred to as the 250 GTE and was built until the fall of 1963 in three distinct series. In all only 954 examples were built and few remain in their original configuration today, as the 250 GTE chassis is often used as platform for 250 GTO tribute cars. Today the Series I GTE is highly prized with its grille mounted fog lights, and separated tail lamp arrangement. A light and powerful car with plenty of leg room the 250 GTE is indicative of what makes the 250 Series Ferraris so coveted today and examples are typically found in some of the world’s most premiere collections.

1961 MERCEDES-BENZ 190SL ROADSTER

History of the 190SL

As the brainchild of legendary European car importer Max Hoffman, the first Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster was designed to serve as a more lifestyle-oriented complement to the outlandish 300SL Gullwing Coupe. Hoffman bet on the racing-oriented gullwing’s curvaceous shape, allowing both the hardtop coupe and the subsequent roadsters to share a design language that was unique to the Stuttgart automaker in the early 1950s. Both the six-cylinder 300SL and four-cylinder 190SL models were marketed, but the less expensive latter vastly outsold its “big brother,” proving that Hoffman’s knack for success was unparalleled among automobile importers.

The spectacular 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series I 4.2 Litre Roadster featured here is finished in the stunning factory color combination of Opalescent Maroon over a black leather interior and black folding convertible top. This incredible example was completed by the Coventry works in May 1967 and was subsequently sold new to collector-owner Prof. Dean Edmonds Jr. through Auto Engineering Inc. of Lexington, Massachusetts. Mr. Edmonds, a Doctoral graduate of MIT and Professor of Physics at Boston University, is credited for his work on developing the cesium atomic clock and today is recognized with his name on the Wall of Honor in the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. A respected automotive collector and connoisseur in his own wright, his personal collection included several notable Jaguars and even a Bugatti Type 55 Super Sport! Mr. Edmonds was so particular that he insisted on picking up the E-type new at the port in 1967 and he drove the car himself to Automotive Engineering for its pre-delivery inspection. The rarely seen Series I¼ arrangement is highly regarded today by Jaguar enthusiasts as these were the first E-Types to feature more comfortable seats while retaining the toggle switches on the dash and triple SU carburetor induction; a combination that is often regarded as the best variation of all Jaguar E-Types. Further research by Edmonds led him to the concluded that his E-type was perhaps the last example to be imported to the U.S. with triple SU carburetors, a feature not seen on the Series I½ and Series II models. With this E-type being of such significance Mr. Edmonds was often contacted by other E-Type owners who were using this example as a guide for their restoration projects. After nearly 40 years of ownership Mr. Edmonds entrusted the specialists at Manfred’s Automotive Specialties in Florida to recondition his cherished E-type at a cost of over $100,000.  Manfred’s addressed the complete mechanical aspects of the Jaguar while cosmetic attention was given where needed to bring the E-Type back to virtually like new condition while retaining the original interior! Today the Jaguar presents in spectacular condition while having traveled only 7,237 actual miles from new. As one would expect to find from a one-owner, low mileage example and unprecedented assortment of documentation accompanies this investment grade Series I E-type including the original invoice, carbon copy of the check Edmonds used to pay for the car, service records and correspondence letters dating back from new, the original tool kit, owner’s manual, Jaguar Heritage Certificate, original window sticker and more. The original chrome wire wheels are still fitted with the original tires while another set of tires and wheels reside on the E-type today for safety purposes. With single collector-level ownership provenance, incredibly low mileage, unprecedented documentation and spectacular condition this Jaguar E-type is without question the finest example to be found on the market today and will certainly bring many years of enjoyment and incredible investment return to its next caretaker!

History of the Jaguar E-Type

A car Enzo Ferrari called “the most beautiful car ever made”, the Jaguar E-Type is considered by many to be one of the most gorgeous automobiles ever built. It took the automotive world by storm upon its unveiling at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show and still continues to turn heads to this day. Underneath its gorgeous, aerodynamic exterior were several state of the art features. Four wheel independent suspension was at all four corners along with four wheel disc brakes that were mounted inward of the axles in the rear. A rack-and-pinion unit provided responsive steering and helped to make the E-type one of the best handling cars of the era. Power was initially provided by the 3.8 Litre straight-six from the XK150S. Producing 266 horsepower, the E-type was capable of more than 150mph. Combined, these features made the E-type one of the most celebrated sports cars ever produced with incredible power, handling, braking and style that rivaled anything else Europe produced. With such timeless appeal and praised appearance, it is no wonder why the Series 1 E-type roadster is one of only a handful of motorcars on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Coveted in its day by the most sporting of drivers, the E-type still remains one of the most sought-after cars in history, especially in Series I Roadster form.

History of the Jaguar XK120
The Jaguar XK120 was unveiled in 1948 at the London Motor Show. It was initially intended as a test bed for a new engine that Jaguar chairman and design czar Sir William Lyons had planned. Its stylish lines and performance XK engine quickly gained the interest of sporting minded enthusiasts across the globe. The XK’s “120” designation stood for its claimed top speed of 120 mph, an assertion that proved true, making it the world’s fastest production car at the time. Public reaction to its flowing curves and styling proportions was so positive, however, that the car was quickly put into production in 1949. From 1949 to 1954, only 6,437 open-two-seater “roadsters” were furnished for export, and today they remain the most sought after when compared to their fixed head coupe and drop head coupe counterparts.
