Lister began in 1954 when driver Brian Lister began making tube-framed race cars in Cambridge, England. The company had a successful through the late 50s, most notably with the Lister-Jaguar, powered by Jaguar's straight-six. This 1959 Lister-Jaguar was campaigned by American driver Briggs Cunningham's team and still wears the iconic Cunningham white with blue stripes paint scheme. The car won the SCCA C-Modified National Championship and was driven by one of the greatest driver's of all time — British legend Sir Stirling Moss. This same car fetched $1.1 million nearly a decade ago when it was last at auction, and that's sure to be beat when it comes across the block in January 2019.
