1964 Shelby 289 Cobra

SCCA legend Don Roberts has driven plenty of cars, so to call this 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra his "favorite" might be a stretch. That said, there's little doubt it's special. After being originally purchased and upgraded to competition spec by one of Shelby's own employees, the car was sold to Roberts, who piloted it to a win in its debut outing before converting it from A- to B-production specification. Over the next decade, he would win three SCCA Divisional Championships behind the wheel, and after a second spell in ownership, re-acquired the car in 1980 and then piloted it to four straight Monterey Historics wins. Even though the car is now with a different owner, Roberts still does maintenance on it, and might very well be on hand to see it auctioned at the site of so many of its successes.

  • 1969 MG MGC GTS Sebring

    One of only six ever built and the only one done to "superlight" specification, this 1969 MG MGC GTS Sebring is a unique vintage racer. Its body is made from steel in the center, with aluminum exterior panels to save weight, and legendary racer/original owner John Chatham lightened it further by installing an aluminum block for the 2,912 cc OHV inline six-cylinder engine and magnesium alloy wheels. He raced the car in various events throughout the '70s before finally selling the car in 2004. It's since undergone a restoration to get it competition-ready once again, and arrives with FIA paperwork.

  • 1954 Jaguar XK120M

    There aren't many cars that look like this 1954 Jaguar XK120M. There aren't many with as rich a history, either. It started life as a regular XK120 Roadster, shipped from the factory in Coventry to New York, and delivered to Tom Jaycox, who proceeded to turn it into a road-drivable race car. Carpets, seats, and the windshield were removed in the name of weight reduction, furthered by the holes drilled in the frame, trunk, and under the hood. An LT1 race seat was procured from Europe, Leyland Motors was consulted about modifications for the engine, aluminum rimmed C-type wheels were installed, and eventually, the machine was raced alongside his brother's red XK120M. It's since been fully restored, but retains the weathered details that link it to its unique history, making it one of the most special Jaguars available today.
