1963 Shelby 289 Cobra CXS 2075

The first Shelby Cobra delivered with the 289 cid engine and one of just 21 independent competition cars built, this 1963 Shelby 289 Cobra CXS 2075 is noteworthy for more than just its sleek black body. During its early years, it was run in various NHRA circuits, before returning to street use in 1971. While its engine, transmission, and differential have been rebuilt, it still retains its original body side curtains, top, and interior, and also carries the signature of its creator Carroll Shelby on the glove box. A fantastic, important example as ready for vintage events as it is for display.

  • Original 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing

    In 1954, Mercedes introduced a race car for the street — the 300SL "Gullwing". Based on the W194 racer that won Le Mans, the idea was suggested to Mercedes by their New York importer, Max Hoffman. Which is where the story of this all-original, unrestored 300SL starts. Ordered by a publishing executive from Hoffman in 1955, the car was specified with British racing green paint over tan leather, making it a rarity among even among a production of just over 1,400. This Gullwing has remained in the same family since it was delivered, racking up just over 16,000 miles over 62 years, and wears a spectacular patina earned over its lifetime of being driven.

  • 1957 Porsche 356A Carrera Speedster GS/GT

    The Porsche 356 Speedster was a harbinger of things to come for the German automaker. Rear-engined and with the shape that would be refined into the legendary 911, the 356 coupe cemented itself as a star on the track, dominating rallies and road races across Europe. This 1957 356A Carrera Speedster, however, is a step above a "regular" 356. Taking the Carrera name from a brutal Mexican road race, this example features a 1.5-liter motor pushing 110bhp, nearly twice as much as the base model, propelling it to 60 MPH in 11 seconds and on to a top speed of over 120 mph. An important piece of Porsche history, approximately 152 Carrera Speedsters were ever produced, and this example is one of only three built as a right-hand drive model.
