History on the 1937 Cord Sportsman

Vehicle Highlights: 

  • One of 195 examples were manufactured of the supremely elegant two-seat convertible coupe later called the Sportsman.
  • Factory exhaust damper
  • Factory working Am radio
  • Factory heater
  • Original fuel pump.
  • 812 supercharged configurations.

One of the few automobiles deemed worthy of inclusion in the Museum of Modern Art in New York and arguably the most easily recognized American car of all time, the Cord 810 debuted in November 1935, where it received a rapturous reception at US automobile shows. Originally conceived as a baby Duesenberg, this amazing design was the work of a team headed by Gordon Buehrig, who had previously designed the famous Duesenberg Beverly style and the stupendous Duesenberg "Twenty Grand" for the 1933 Chicago World's Fair.

The 810-body style with its louvered "coffin" nose, streamlined wings, concealed gas filler under a modern flap, headlamps that opened by means of hand-cranks on either side of the airplane-style engine-turned aluminum dash and the absence of running boards would prove immensely influential. The following model year, cars all over the world suddenly had horizontal chrome strips along the hood, squared-off grilles and more shapely side treatments. None however, could aspire to the clean, simple and timeless beauty of the original.

The 810's arrival marked the end of a hiatus in Cord production, as the L-29 model had disappeared in 1931. Errett Lobban Cord had introduced the L-29 in 1929 as a gap-filling model priced between the Auburn and Duesenberg lines of the Cord Corporation. Powered by a Lycoming straight-eight, the Cord L-29 featured front wheel drive, a chassis layout then in vogue at Indianapolis. Its front-wheel-drive layout made for a low-slung frame, and the freedom this gave coachbuilders meant that the Cord was soon attracting the attention of master craftsmen on both sides of the Atlantic.

A front-wheel-drive car like the L-29, the 810 differed from its predecessor by virtue of its more compact Lycoming V-8 engine and 4-speed, pre-selector electric gearbox, modelled on the French Cotal. Set further back in the chassis, the new powertrain gave the 810-improved balance and came with 125 bhp in standard trim or 170 bhp when supercharged.

The Cord was re-designated 812 for 1937 when custom sedans on a longer wheelbase joined the range, although it is doubtful whether any independent offering ever matched Buehrig's original Beverly fastback sedan for sheer style. Supercharging was made available on the 1937 812 models, and these can be distinguished from the normally aspirated 812s by the chrome-plated external exhaust pipes mounted on each side of the hood and grille. Priced competitively in the USD 2,000 - 3,000 range, the 810/812 should have been a huge success, but this was not to be. The Cord Corporation was in deep financial trouble, and when Mr. Cord sold up in August 1937, it spelled the end not just for Cord, but for Auburn and Duesenberg as well. At the close, a little fewer than 3,000 810/812s had been made.

By far most were closed cars, called the Westchester when built as a fastback, and the Beverly when fitted with a bustleback trunk. Of the open models, the most common was the four-passenger Phaeton. Only 195 examples were manufactured of the supremely elegant two-seat convertible coupe later called the Sportsman, and according to the factory records, a mere 64 of these were supercharged.

According to previous owner and famous Hispano-Suiza expert Jules Heumann, 31631F is a three decade long effort by one of the most respected Cord enthusiasts, Henry Portz of Arroyo Grande, California. This car never left the factory officially with this motor, chassis, body and stub frame, but was restored over a thirty year period using all original components.  The car is all Sportsman except the rear beyond the doors which had to be reformed using new metal due to the donor parts being unusable according to Portz in a 2015 recording where he was interviewed about the car.   The car was restored to such a high standard, all faults of the original design, such as slipping out of gear and vapor lock were corrected in the restoration. The quality of the car is fully authentic for a supercharged model and it is probably the finest supercharged ‘Sportsman’ extant even though it did not leave the factory as a supercharged Sportsman. The rich Clay Brown color is an original Cord color as well.  

The car carries impossible-to-find and fully functional accessories including a factory AM radio, factory heater and an original fuel pump.

Although the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg club were unable recognize the car as being originally delivered by the factory as a supercharged Sportsman, it attended one of its national meets and was featured on the cover of the 5th edition of the 2011 ACD newsletter. Today, it has the reputation of being one of the finest Cord 812 supercharged convertible coupes known. Jules Heumann acquired 31631F from Henry Portz in late 2011, as he had never previously owned an American classic. He kept the car for a little over a year, but sold the car to Henrik Frederiksen in late 2012.

When this car was shipped, it had a standard coolant, but not long after reaching Denmark low temperatures were encountered and the engine was damaged by freezing. Amazingly, Henrik Frederiksen was able to acquire a rebuilt supercharged Cord 812 engine from Mark Tomei in January 2013, which was then fitted to the car and re-stamped to match the data plate. Chassis 31631F is reported to drive and shift well and remains in outstanding fully restored condition showing in nearly flawless condition.

This example represents the second-generation front wheel drive Cord in its ultimate 812 supercharged configuration. In addition, this car has the rarest open body type, which is very sought after due to its clean and exquisite style with fully disappearing top, unencumbered by the frivolous ornamentation plastered on so much of its competition at the time.

1968 Lamborghini IsleroPrice:$375,000Mileage:21,783Engine:3,929 cc (239.8 cu in) 60° V12Transmission:Five-speed, reverse manual all-synchromeshExterior:Sophistograu B90Interior:6273

History on the 1968 Lamborghini Islero

Vehicle Highlights:  

  • Under 22,000 original documented miles
  • Rotisserie restoration done by professional craftsmen at Black Horse Garage with documented photos
  • Rare factory options
  • Boar leather interior with original shift knob and steering wheel
  • Interior Color: Tobacco Boar Hide

The 1968 Lamborghini Islero was the replacement for the 400 GT and featured Lamborghini’s V12 Engine. The Islero was named after a Miura bull that struck the matador Manuel Rodriguez, that’s one interesting way to get a name for sure. The Islero’s improved power allowed for 320 brake horsepower powered by a 4.0L V12 engine that propelled the car to a top speed of 155MPH. With only 225 Islero’s being produced it accounts for the exceptional uniqueness and rareness of the vehicle. The Islero is a must have vehicle to add to your collection.  

As you flick your garage light on you immediately notice the beautiful Sophistograu B90 paint that sparkles as the light hits it. As your hand reaches for the door handle you are struck by the exquisite bright work. With confidence and a smile from ear to ear you open the door and then it hits you. An aroma so fierce it makes you want to jump into the car and roll up all the windows to not let the smell slip away. The interior is such an experience. It was re-done with true boar leather and as you examine the seats you will notice every tiny pour. As you run your fingers across the passenger seat you are struck by the soft and supple leather. As your gaze shifts to the steering wheel you immediately take your thumb and slowly wipe the Lamborghini badge. The steering wheel beckons your fingers to be wrapped around it. As you squeeze tightly with both hands your eye catches the beautiful white lines in each gauge. You take the keys out of your pocket ever so gracefully and put it into the ignition. Slowly turning it and hearing every individual click. As the Islero roars to life and your put your left foot onto the clutch pedal and shift into first gear you stare into the rearview mirror and notice your garage quickly disappearing.  

This particular Lamborghini Islero had an extensive and interesting history. Originally shipped to John Montague in Canada, purchased through Lotus Dealership in Vancouver. John owned it up to 1973 when it was then sold to Martin Thomas from England as payment for a business debt. Thomas sold the car in Monaco with 16,000 miles on the odometer and a full providence history included to Alan Watkins and he brought it to the United States. Watkins showed the car in the 2003 and 2007 in Concorso at Pebble Beach. Featured in Popular Mechanics magazine they stated it was one of the best and well-maintained Islero’s ever kept. It stacks up favorably compared to the competition in 1968. The Islero produced more horsepower, top speed, lb-feet of torque and weighs less than a Ferrari 365 GTC. Similarly, it beats the 1968 Maserati Ghibli in top speed and weight. It rivals the Ferrari Daytona in horse power, top speed, engine displacement, torque, weight and a 0-60 time.   This Islero is a truly unique car with a highly coveted history. You will not want to miss this opportunity!

Vehicle Highlights:  

  • Under 39,000 Original Miles
  • Fully documented provenance history
  • Original title, tool kit and tire compressor
  • Special ordered Sable brown metallic

I got the notion to look for Porsches after watching some recent TV series that depict life in the 80's. In the TV sitcom 'The Goldbergs', there's an episode with a Porsche 928 that mimics a scene from the 80's hit movie 'Risky Business' with Tom Cruise. Cruise's character, Joel, lets his father's beloved Porsche roll off a dock and it ends up sinking into a lake. I remember watching the movie and the impact it had on me--all I could think was how such an awesome sports car got ruined!  

Now we're seeing increase in value for these forgotten stars. They're starting to shine bright again and in the near future will be brighter than ever. In the last five years there's been a steady increase in value and each year that goes by there's been a bigger increase than the year before. This particular car is the best available investment grade 944 on the market.  

This Porsche had one owner who took meticulous care, to the extent of writing down every single gas stop, recording the mileage, date and price per gallon of each stop. He even capped and laminated the dealership key-tag, along with all of the original sale brochures, documentation, cassette tape, keys and any other additionals that were given to him at the time of the sale. We have the original title, complete tool kit, tire compressor and a number of original knick knacks.   The car runs and performs beautifully. I have to give credit to the original owner who put so much effort and care into preserving this car so that other Porsche enthusiast can enjoy the experience like he once did.

1961 Chrysler 300GPrice:$45,000Mileage:7,656Engine:413 V8Transmission:AutomaticExterior:WhiteInterior:0927 1107 842 833
Additional Info

Vehicle Highlights:

  • Under 8,000 miles
  • Original Alaskan White paint

According to the 300 Club, this car was dispatched for dealer delivery on the 27th of September, 1960 making this an exceptionally early 300G.  Indeed, there are several subtle differences between this car and later-built cars including the lack of the '300' on the rear deck lid which started to appear on cars built beyond the very early production models.

Presented in its original Alaskan White, this car has received an older sympathetic restoration that set out to preserve its originality. All of the sheet metal appears original with the exception of the rear quarters which were replaced at the time of restoration. The door gaps and rockers are excellent. The floors are excellent originals.  All of the glass is original except for the windshield. The original 'air temp' air conditioning sticker still resides on the passenger side of the back window.   The paint, chrome and other trim is all in excellent condition. Given the age of the restoration, the car has been preserved phenomenally well and could easily be shown at local and regional shows.

The interior is beautiful and in excellent overall condition. The car does have a reproduction dash pad but is otherwise original. The comes from its long-term owners estate. He was an avid letter car collector owning many examples. He passed away several years ago and this car has undergone extensive work to bring it back to road-readiness. The brakes and fuel systems have been completely gone through. All of the fluids have been changed. The car has been extensively road tested and had traveled in excess of 500 miles since March 1st of this year ensuring total reliability for new ownership. This car is well known by both clubs as its curator for the last several decades was a proud collector of letter series cars and hence, very active in all club activities. This car is fast and reliable. The brakes are excellent and virtually all mechanical functions are in top working order. You'd be hard pressed to find such a highly optioned car as tour ready and functional as this one.

1955 MG TFPrice:$39,500Mileage:30,722Engine:1500ccTransmission:ManualExterior:BlackInterior:XPEG1241
Additional Info

Vehicle Highlights:

  • $30,000 documented, body-off frame restoration
  • Original color combination
  • Original Wire Wheels
  • Original Owner’s Manual
  • Always garaged & pampered
  • Two-Owner California Vehicle
  • Interior Color: Red

The MG T-series was a line of vehicles produced by MG from 1936-1955 that featured a range of open two-seater sports cars. Following the production of the MG TA through MG TD, the MG TF was the final car of the series, launching in 1953. The TF has been nicknamed ‘the last of the square riggers’ by many, as most British car manufacturers had moved on to producing more modern and streamlined vehicle by the mid-1950s. This model has a few mechanical alterations from the previous TD, retaining its predecessor’s body center section, but implementing a changed front end with a shortened, sloping, radiator grille, headlamps faired into the wings, and an improved interior with separately adjustable seats. The original TF had also retained the previous model’s 1,250cc, XPAG engine, but was later replaced by a 1,466cc XPEG engine.

This newer version of the TF was dubbed the TF 1500. Visually, it was very difficult to differentiate the TF from the TF 1500. The only exterior differences between the two vehicles were two discreet ‘TF 1500’ motifs on each of the bonnet side panels, and the addition of two rear reflectors. After 18 months of producing the TF 1500, the model was retired. During it’s lifetime, 9,602 TF’s had been manufactured, as well as two prototypes and 3,400 of the upgraded TF 1500. Production ended at chassis number TF10100 on the April 4th 1955, and the TF-series was later replaced by the MGA.

You spot it from a distance. The sunlight glistens off it’s clean black finish. With its top down, the cherry red leather interior of the MG TF invites you in. At the same time, it’s menacing sloped grille and headlights intimidate you. They beg the question ‘Are you ready to take on this beast?’ You approach the driver’s side door, in awe of the beautifully rounded side paneling that spans the entire length of the car. Hinged towards the back of the car, the door swings outward, giving you a full glimpse of the incredible craftsmanship that went into this vehicle. The steering wheel is smooth to the touch, as is the rest of the dash. Sitting there in admiration of this fine piece of machinery, you almost wish you had a passenger to experience it with you.

But not today; Today, it’s just you, the beast, and the open road. You insert the keys into the ignition and reach for the starting knob. The engine roars as the car starts, but then recedes to a reassuring purr. Finally, you work up the courage to bring your foot to the gas pedal and pull out onto the road. You rest your arm on the side of the door as you run your fingers across the car’s smooth black exterior. Gripping the wheel with one hand, your fingers fall almost perfectly into the grooves on the back of the steering wheel. The wind in your face is cool, but the sun on the back of your neck keeps you warm. With a single hand on the wheel, you cruise down the street, slowly picking up speed. The attitude and intimidation that this machine had once instilled in you has now become a part of you. All your doubts and worries slowly drift away, settling alongside the pedestrians that gaze as you drive off into the distance. Finally, a feeling of calmness and relaxation washes over your body. Not only were you prepared to take on this beast, you’ve now conquered it. This particular MG TF 1500 from 1955 has been well loved and pampered over it’s years of ownership.

A documented $30,000.00 body-off frame restoration was performed with the original color combination. A full leather interior and the seats are finished in stunning cherry red. This MG TF comes equipped with StaFast canvas convertible top, side curtains and tonneau cover. In addition, it comes with the original wire wheels and Yokohama 165/15 radials. Original owner’s manual and seatbelts added. This TF was built for export to California. It was sold to Continental Motors in Witter, CA to an engineer and pilot who lives in the affluent community of Palos Verdes. Being shipped from California it possesses an immaculate rust-free body will all original panels that fit wonderfully.

History on the 2010 Ferrari California:

Vehicle Highlights:

  • Daytona Seat Style and Electrically Operated
  • Magneride Dual Mode Suspension
  • Front and Rear Radar
  • LOJACK
  • Active Sports Exhaust Button
  • 2nd Owner
  • Interior Color: Navy

The California is full of firsts for Ferrari. It is the first-mounted V-8-engine Ferrari to use direct injection, dual-clutch automated manual transmission and the first true launch-control system. However, Ferrari’s racing lineage has not been changed with the development of this car. It has more eloquently expanded the range of Ferrari’s. The California is a leather lined, 2+2 coupé, but please be advise only children can fit in the back seats that screams Ferrari’s racing heritage.  The California produces 454 hp and 357lb-ft of torque. The dual clutch seven speed automated manual gearbox is close to perfection and is way better than the old F1 automated manual. The shifts in the dual clutch are made in nanoseconds. The neck-snapping caused by the F1 is completely gone. The California does 0-60 in an astonishing 3.5 seconds and the quarter mile in 11.9 seconds. However, the true engineering genius behind the California is the retractable hardtop. The chassis does not lose any of its structural rigidity. Many have speculated why Ferrari stacked the exhaust pipes, was it for styling? No, Ferrari does not build vehicles based on styling. Everything is done for a specific reason. At high speeds air pressure will build up in the wheel wells, therefore creating a lift. Ferrari knew this and put a vent in the back of the wheel well. The solution eliminated the possibility of the car’s rear end getting light while playing in the triple-digit zone. The California is the best of both worlds; a comfortable daily cruiser and flip the switch to sport mode it becomes a track ready performer.  

It’s a summer morning, there is a slight breeze and the temperature is around 75 degrees. There isn’t a cloud in the sky and the sun is shining on the back of your neck. As you elegantly weave through the backroads you smile, as you have done over and over again. The Grigio Silverstone Metallic glistens and sparkles as the sun pierces through the tree’s. The active sports exhaust produces a menacing roar and as you put your foot down to the floor the chorus gets louder. As the RPM needle approaches redline your hands grasps a firm piece of alloy that is mounted to the steering column. The design of the paddle shifters has an elegant artistic flair that embody Ferrari’s racing-bred heritage. With a slight pull the upshifts are instantaneous and refined. As you approach the stop light and push down on the brake pedal the racing black Brembo brake calibers bring you to a complete stop with poise and grace. With a quick glance to left your and right you see no other vehicles. With a slight smile you push the accelerator to the floor and you’ve already reached 60 MPH’s in 3.5 seconds. As you whip around the corner you are yet again impressed with the California because it has no understeer, it takes the corner with ease. As you approach your office building and park your California in your favorite spot. Away from all of the other vehicles, tucked in a corner with a cement support beam to your right and the cement wall to your left. With a quick flick of the convertible switch the Ferrari hardtop opens from the trunk and goes up at a 90-degree angle. You are amazed by the speed at which the hardtop and the trunk swing almost centimeters apart before the hardtop is secured into place. That’s Ferrari’s craftsmanship at its finest. With a quick click of the lock button on the Ferrari red racing key, you rejoice. Why? This is because your California is your daily driver.  

This particular Ferrari California comes with a whole range of options and added goodies. To begin, from the factory it received Daytona Seat style, Central Tunnel and Arms in leather. Electronically operated seats, Scuderia Ferrari Shields, Magneride Dual Mode, Parking Camera, Front and Rear parking sensors, Yellow Rev. Counter and many more options. In addition, there is a LOJACK system installed along with Front and Rear Radar. There is a button underneath the steering column that opens up the valves in the exhaust to keep it in sport mode all the time.

History on the 1990 Ferrari 348 TS Targa

Vehicle Highlights:

  • 11,200 Miles
  • Impeccable Service Records
  • Flawless Cosmetic Condition
  • Interior Color: Tan

Ferrari introduced the 348 in 1989 as a long-awaited successor to the 308/328 series, which has been in production since 1976. A dramatic departure from its predecessor, the 348 took styling cues from the Testarossa, with its side-mounted radiators and strakes, while also having a longitudinally mounted engine with a transverse gearbox. This mid-engine arrangement mimicked the layout of Ferrari’s F1 cars of that time which also happened to be one of the most winningest teams of that era as well. The 3.4 liter four-cam V-8 made 300hp and propelled the car to 60mph in 5.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 171mph.

This Ferrari 348 has been meticulously maintained since it left the dealership back in 1990, and since then has only put 11,200 miles on the odometer. The air conditioning in the car blows cool air even on the hottest of days and the most recent major service was performed 3 years ago. The vent on the hood of the car was replaced in 2014 as well, and the entire front black lip was resprayed and the engine cover insulation was replaced as well. Accompanying the car is a full leather Ferrari toolset original with the car, as well as an original Ferrari owner’s manual, and service manual.

History on the 1987 Buick Regal Grand National

Interior Color: Black

In 1982, Buick introduced the Grand National to celebrate their wins of the Winston Manufacturers Cup and what began as a limited run of 100 cars to celebrate their victories became a mainstay of the Buick brand through the 1980s. Something about the Grand National captured the essence of American automotive culture throughout the 1980s.

In 1987 when this Grand National was produced, Buick had created a swan song for the Buick Muscle Car, a working mans supercar, with huge amounts of usable torque and a 14 second quarter mile time right off the dealership lot. Driving this car is a nostalgic experience and it brings the driver back to a simpler time of cars, when passion and competition lead automotive design not safety features and fuel economy.

This particular 1987 Buick Grand National has been well maintained and cared for by a committed owner. It has been tastefully upgraded , which includes a fiberglass hood, the original also comes with the car, and a new ECU chip. This car came equipped with the “G80” option for a limited slip differential.

All mechanicals have been gone through by Black Horse Garage. The car has a recent engine rebuild including a new piston rings, new camshaft bearings, new valve seals, all new engine gaskets, water pump,rear main seal, The crankshaft was also sent out to be redone. All of the wiring has been gone though to make sure everything's in working order.

The brakes were completely redone and shocks installed along with all new BF Goodrich comp T/A tires. The car also has a new serpentine belt and ignition coil pack. This car is ready to add to your collection and enjoy today!

The Turbo 3.8L V6 pulls hard and this car is fantastically fun to drive. The all black appearance of this Grand National gives it an aggressive look that is sure to turn heads anywhere you bring this car. Values of these Grand Nationals have been increasingly steadily in the past several years.

This is your opportunity to own a very nice Grand National with documented professional restoration work as well as a copy of the original build sheet!

A bright Ferrari red engine start button catches your eye. Pushing the red button brings the behemoth to life. It roars and crackles and the RPM needle is slightly under 2,000.

History on the 1980 Mercedes-benz 450SL:

Vehicle Highlights:

  • Rare Inca Red Metallic Paint
  • Chocolate Brown Interior
  • Second Owner Vehicle

The 1980 Mercedes Benz 450SL is spacious 2-seater that marries the disconnection of a sporty, yet reliable quality, with a refined ostentatious look. The 450 SL arrived in the United States in 1973 along with U.S. –spec bumpers that joined the twin sealed-beam headlamps in marring the good looks of the European version of the car. The interior comes with air-conditioning, powered windows, burl-wood accents and the indestructible MB- Tex. interior. Powered by a 275.8ci V-8 engine producing 225 HP at 5,000 RPM’s. The 450SL was shown in many memorable movies and television shows, like when Tony Roberts chauffeured Woody Allen around Beverly Hills in Annie Hall. Richard Gere’s memorable cruise down Malibu to Blondie’s “Call Me” in American Giogolo.   

As you walk up to this particular 450SL you are immediately struck by the astonishing Inca Red Metallic paint. As your hand reaches down to open the driver door you are amazed by the well-maintained bright work. Opening the door delivers a satisfying click and when you shut it close you hear a solid thunk. The chocolate brown interior warms up the cabin and the contrast stitching of the Inca Red Metallic paint in the floor mats allows the unique paint color to seep through the entire cabin. The steering wheel is thick and appropriately weighted in your hands. The shiny Mercedes-Benz logo beckons your fingers to wipe it. All of the buttons work in the interior, the rims were stripped and re-done and over $4,500 was recently put into the engine. This vehicle comes with the optional hard-top. This is a truly exceptional vehicle and you will not want to miss out on this opportunity.

Vehicle Highlights:

  • Only 4 B5 Blue HURST Edition Challengers with Vortech SC
  • 6.1L SRT-8 575 HP Engine
  • Limited production run from mid-2009 to mid-2011
  • Interior Color: Black

Includes all documentation This 2010 Dodge Challenger isn’t any normal Dodge Challenger, it’s a 2010 HURST Competition PLUS Challenger. Hurst has a reputation for being one of the most recognized names in the automobile industry and when they partnered with Dodge you knew that they would make something incredible. This partnership was very limited as it only ran from mid-2009 to mid-2011. As you walk up to the car you can hear the roar of the Magnaflow stainless-steel exhaust, and the whine of the supercharger in the 6.1L SRT-8 engine, of which only a few HURST editions were made with. The next thing you notice is the striking blue paint color that pops out and reflects light as if it were beckoning you to come and drive it. You also notice the beautiful Vortech HRE forged wheels that only a very limited number of HURST Edition challengers have, as well as an optional Mopar hood scoop. After admiring the car for its raw beauty you step into the driver’s seat, put your foot down, and your head is pushed into the back of the seat as the 575 horsepower engine roars to life.

This particular car was purchased from Woodhouse Dodge in Oklahoma and only has 6655 miles recorded on the odometer. He bought the car because he wanted to own a car that would put out performance numbers that rival the Hellcat but is also very collectable and rare. The car comes with all of the original documentation from the factory and from Hurst, as well as it was stored in a heated garage to keep it in pristine condition. If you are looking for a car that is extremely collectable and rare, but that can also manage to put your head through your seat when you accelerate then this car is for you.

The 600SL is powered by 12-cyl. 5987cc boasting an impressive 389 horse power. In the 1990 model year, Mercedes replaced the old design with the new R129 design.
