Spotted for sale in California is a Collection. The owner has decided to downsize. These are the cars he is willing to part with at this time.
I have been collecting cars, bikes, and boats for a long time. The time has come to downsize and sell some things as I’m out of storage space.
1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale – an original black plate California car that has been off the road, and parked in a dry garage since 1972. Odometer shows 35k miles. Complete and matching numbers. Unrestored condition. A genuinely great car – this is the one you want to keep, restore, and never let go of! Its a keeper, not a flipper. $90k
1934 Rolls Royce Phantom II Limousine De Ville with coachwork by Gurney Nutting – beautiful older restoration done to AACA and CCCA standards. This car has documented celebrity and Royal (Ducal) history. A very impressive classic. Offers?
1960 Mercedes Benz 190b Kombi by Korrosserie Binz. Mercedes didn’t build their own wagons in those days, so they were special ordered through an outside coachbuilder, and available in various configurations (ambulance, hearse, kombi). This one is a kombi with a tailgate/lift gate rear door. It has the folding rear bench and reclining front bench. This was a California car that was purchased on the European Delivery program. Unfortunately, it was poorly stored for years outside in LA, and now needs a complete restoration. Only 349 built, so it is rare enough to make the time and cost to restore worthwhile. $10k
1964 Fiat / Abarth 1000 race car. This is a barn find that was last road registered in Iowa circa 1978. It features front radiator, 4 wheel disc brakes, Cromadora alloy wheels (with petrified Pirelli CORSA tires still mounted), radiused front wheel openings like the 1000TCR’s had, 3 gauge cluster with Jaegers, deck lid props, Raydyot mirror, etc. engine is out an apart. Body has a couple of issues, but is mostly very good. No known history. $10k
1956 Nash Rambler Custom sedan. This is a wonderful cruiser, in rare colors (yellow and black two-tone with apple green interior). I was told that the mileage was very low when I bought it, but there was no documentation. Straight 6 with automatic, wide whites. $13,500
Aristocraft Torpedo 14′ mahogany barrelback dual cowl runabout. This is probably one of the most beautiful small boat designs ever created. It is really extraordinary and very sexy! Great condition overall (collector owned for years). These are currently being built and sold for $15k with no motor or trailer. This one has an Evinrude and galvanized trailer for only $8k
Vincent engined tube frame drag racer. This was a fire-breathing and exotic machine back in the late’60’s. This had a Vincent rapide V – Twin stretched from 1000cc all the way up to 1600cc! it was able to exceed 150 mph in the 1/4 mile, Eventually the bike was retired and the engine sold off. I have the rolling chassis in great shape, and a mountain of history (photos, magazine articles, receipts, handwritten letters, trophies, , and even the original BUCO worn on the strip. this is an extreme piece of motorcycling history. Would look great in a collection, or mounted on a wall in your man cave- $7500
1958 Velocette Venom Clubman. Iconic 500cc thumper with all the cafe racer equipment: clip-ons, dual gauges, rear sets, fishtail exhaust, etc. $12,500
1962 Laverda 200 twin by Gemini. A very rare variant of the Laverda line rebadged by Gemini for the US market. Original unrestored condition including paint. Starts easily and runs /shifts well. 4 stroke twin built for comfort, but would be a fun Giro mount! $3500
