Bill Harrah's 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona

Bill Harrah made his fortune building casinos that bear his name. But even the glitz of his casinos couldn't match his stable of exotic automobiles, with a particular emphasis on Ferraris. Mr. Harrah's 1971 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinetta was built by the factory with customizations not seen on the "regular" production Daytonas, and upon taking delivery of the car, Harrah had competition wheels and motor upgrades added. Part of the history of this car involves a salesman offering Mr. Harrah a faster way to get from Reno to Lake Tahoe — a Sikorsky helicopter. Unimpressed, Harrah said he'd take one if it could beat his Daytona. The helicopter lost, with the Ferrari reportedly averaging 146 MPH for the run. Presented in its original color scheme with its original engine, it's a pristine example with a storied past.

  • 1966 Shelby GT350-H Fastback

    In 1966, Ford partnered with the Hertz rental car company to give travelers something a little more exciting than the usual American sedan — the Shelby GT350-H Fastback. But it wasn't people on vacations and business trips that rented them. Affectionately known as the "Rent-a-Racer," many of these GT350s ended up on the track at race weekends, coming back on Monday with bald tires and evidence of roll cages being welded in. With around 1,000 produced, the car is rare, even by Shelby Mustang standards, but this particular example is even more scarce with its Ivy Green paint instead of the typical black. It crosses the auction block at Barret-Jackson June 21-24.

  • 1958 Works Lister Knobbly

    You would be hard-pressed to find a richer and more successful tradition of motorsport than that of the United Kingdom. One of the lesser-known marques to come from the British Isles is Lister, who built several competitive cars in the 1950s powered by Jaguar engines. After several changes of ownership, Lister is getting back to their roots with the 1958 Works Lister Knobbly. An exact replica built from the original plans with modern manufacturing processes, the company brought manufacturing jigs and even former employees to produce the cars. Available as an FIA-approved, vintage spec race-ready car, it brings the glory days of Britsh racing to the modern age.
