The Ferrari 250 Series cars built from 1953 through until 1964 really stamped Ferrari on the map. The race cars dominated on tracks all over the world and their road cars were without peer and very successful. Ferrari was on a roll and his clientele were the rich and famous. The 275 and 330 Series cars which succeeded the 250 Series cars were also very successful cars in period, though both were built and sold primarily as gran turismo road cars. Without doubt one of the best cars to come from Maranello during this time was the subtle, yet beautiful Ferrari 330 GTC. The Ferrari 330 GTC debuted at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show. The car was designed to fill the gap between the four seater 330 GT and top of the range 275 series cars. Built on the 275 chassis and powered by the proven four litre twin cam V12 engine (with 300 hp) and with fully independent suspension, the 330 GTC was regarded as the best gran turismo car in the world at that time. Many viewed the 330 GTC as a closed version of the 275 GTS. In total just shy of 600 cars were built from 1966 to 1968 before being succeeded by the 365 GTC. These cars are rare in Australia with perhaps only ten examples known to remain in this country. We are delighted to offer a fully sorted and absolutely stunning 1968 Ferrari 330 GTC. This particular car was delivered new to Italy and sold by Ferrari dealer Motor S.A.S to a Mr Mattioli in Rome. Its original colour scheme was 'azzurro' with a black interior. Subsequently the car’s early history is not known, however, it is understood to have found its way to the USA early in its life. The car was acquired in a poor state from the USA by an Australian enthusiast who imported the car and immediately began a total restoration. Unfortunately progress was slow and other projects took precedence. The car was sold partly restored to Ian Cummins in the mid to late 1990’s and it was Ian who completed the restoration of the car. The car was converted to right hand drive during the restoration. It was sold to the current owner in late 2000, however, he was working overseas at the time and didn’t take possession of the car until he returned home to Australia in September 2001. At that time the odometer was 29490 km. In the following 16 plus years of ownership this classic Ferrari has been meticulously maintained at no expense by marque specialists in Melbourne. In September 2009 the engine was rebuilt by Mark Johnson in Melbourne. At that time the odometer was at 38760 km. Today the odometer reads 46365 km.When restored the car was finished in the stunning colour combination of ‘Rosso Sir Ivor’ (a light metallic burgundy) with a beige leather interior. There is an album which contains a photographic record of the restoration. Whilst it is an older restoration this car is stunning and it presents and drives fabulously! It is not a concours car, rather a beautifully presented example that does get driven from time to time. The paint work remains of high quality and as you can see from the suite of photographs the depth of colour is very strong. There are some very minor imperfections in the paint with the odd small stone chip evident. All of the bright work, exterior trim and glass are in very good condition. Inside the cockpit everything is excellent, including the leather seats, door cards, the carpets, timber work, dash, instruments and controls. The engine bay is spotless and very clean. The heart and soul of any Ferrari is its engine and this 330 has one of the sweetest engines we have experienced in a classic V12 Ferrari. Turn the key, prime the fuel pumps to fill the carburettors, three pumps on the throttle and ignition . . . boom, she starts straight away from cold without touching the accelerator and immediately settles into a smooth idle. Allow everything to warm up and get the car out on the open road and it is just magic! The V12 sings like no other and the power band is just something! The gearbox is slick and very smooth. The car also handles and stops as it should. This Ferrari 330 GTC is fully sorted and ready for its new owner to enjoy. It is also fitted with air conditioning. Any inspection welcome. The car has a partially complete tool roll & jack kit, owner's manual, parts manual and an extensive history / ownership file since acquisition by the current owner in 2000. A unique opportunity.

The Porsche 911 story is one of motoring’s finest. The Porsche 901 as it was initially designated was first shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1963, however, when production commenced in 1964 it was sold as a Porsche 911. Interestingly Porsche was forced to change the name of its new car as a result of Peugeot having exclusive rights to car names formed by three numbers with a zero in the middle! The 911′s trademark was that it was powered by an air cooled engine mounted in the rear. The model evolved over the years, however, Porsche remained true to the 911′s original concept only changing to a water cooled engine with the 996 series in 1998. The 911 excelled as both a road car and as a race car and it is arguably the most successful sports car ever built. Today the 911 lives on and the latest 991 series cars that are manufactured in Stuttgart are as popular as ever. There were many significant incarnations of the 911 and arguably one of the most important was the introduction of the Porsche Turbo. Whilst Porsche had toyed with turbo charging previously, and indeed used it successfully on their race cars, it wasn’t until the introduction of the Porsche 930 Turbo (also known as the Porsche Turbo or Porsche 911 Turbo in some markets) that turbo charging was available on a Porsche production car. The Porsche 930 Turbo was first shown at the Paris Motor Show in late 1974 and the car entered production the following year. At the time the car caused an absolute sensation. It was easily distinguishable from the ‘standard’ 911 by its body shape and specifically by its distinctive wide wheel-arches that had to accommodate the ultra low profile Pirelli P7 tyres and of course the large rear spoiler or ‘whale tail’. Powered by a 2996 cc 6 cylinder turbo charged engine delivering 260hp the car was exhilarating to drive and by today’s standards incredibly raw. These early cars are known for their exhilarating acceleration coupled with challenging handling characteristics and extreme turbo lag. The acceleration was neck snapping reaching 0-100 km/hr in just over 5 seconds and the top speed was quoted to be ‘in excess of 250 km/hr’. At the time the car was recognised in the same company as the Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari Boxer and Aston Martin Vantage as one of THE ‘supercars of the 70′s’. Porsche made its first significant change to the Turbo in 1978 when the engine capacity was increased to 3299 cc, an intercooler was added and the brakes upgraded. In this guise the car was produced for a decade being ultimately succeeded by the 964 series in 1990. Oldtimer Australia is privileged to offer for sale this stunning, totally original and unmolested 1982 Porsche Turbo 3.3 Litre. The car is a factory right hand drive Australian delivery, it is fully matching numbers and is finished in its original colour scheme of guards red (027-9-2) with a tan interior. With just over 61,000km on the clock it is totally original in every regard and drives like a ‘new car’. And yes it has a full service history with books and tools. Just wow . . . there wouldn’t be many like this in the world let alone Australia! The car was sold new through John Newell Porsche Centre in Darlinghurst, Sydney to a Mr Tony Ianelli who lived in a small country town in rural NSW. Ianelli kept the car for thirty years before selling it in 2012. He was posted overseas in 2010 and had the car in storage and ultimately made the difficult decision to part with his beloved Porsche two years later. The car was taken to a Porsche specialist in Melbourne by its new owner and they went through car from top to bottom. There are invoices on file for $10,000 for this work. At that time the odometer was at 61032 km. The car’s new owner was coincidentally transferred interstate with work so the Porsche was again laid up in storage and seldom driven over the next four years. The car changed hands in 2016 and it was again recommissioned by the same Porsche specialist in Melbourne. At that time the odometer was 61127 km and in excess of $10,000 was spent recommissioning the car and bringing it to the condition it is today. The car was acquired by Oldtimer Australia in late 2016 for a growing air cooled Porsche collection, however, its new owner has changed direction with his car collection and this wonderful Porsche is now offered for sale. The best way to describe this car is as a ‘time capsule’. With a genuine and documented 61376 km on the odometer this car is quite something. The paint looks to be extensively original and for its age is in remarkably good condition. It has a high gloss and great depth of colour as you will see from the photographs. It does have a few stone chips on the bonnet and the odd blemish here and there, most of which would have been collected by its country driving from new. The interior is pretty much like being in a ‘new car’ back in 1982! The seats, door cards, carpets, instruments & controls, steering wheel are all in excellent condition. Can you believe it still has that eighties new car Porsche smell . . . incredible! As you would expect the car runs and drives magnificently. The steering and gear linkages on these older Porsches can get somewhat ‘sloppy’ over time, however, in this car it is as tight as a drum. The engine pulls like a train and the performance is simply breath taking. The car retains its original Porsche radio. The previous owner opted to fit a set of aftermarket Fuchs wheel and preserve the originals in storage. The original wheels along with the books, tools, miscellaneous Porsche accessories and history file will of course accompany the car. The original John Newell Porsche Centre sticker still remains on the rear windscreen of the car. This is one for the serious Porsche collector. Listed price AUD $320,000
The late 1960’s and early 1970’s were a fabulous time for Ferrari. Its flagship 365 GTB/4 Daytona was a resounding success and Enzo’s ‘big risk’ the Dino 246 was also selling very well. At that time Ferrari wanted to continue with his tradition of producing high performance ‘Grand Touring’ cars with a 2+2 configuration and the 365 GTC/4, which was a successor to the 365 GT 2+2 and 365 GTC, filled that niche. The early 1970′s were a time of innovation and Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati et al continued to introduce new models in an endeavour to trump the other. The 365 GTC/4 was only in production in 1971 & 1972 and its successor the 365 GT/4 2+2 was first shown in October 1972 at the Paris Motor Show. This car, designed and built by Pininfarina, featured unique styling and whilst the sharp angular lines were ‘very new’ for Ferrari is did share the characteristic design feature of a swage line dividing the body into an upper and a lower half with the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Unlike the GTC/4 the GT/4 2+2 could seat four people in relative comfort. Mechanically the 365 GT/4 2+2 was almost identical to the 365 GTC/4 and its 4390 cc quad cam V12 engine with six Weber 38DCOE side draught carburettors put out an impressive 320 bhp was capable of propelling the car from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/hr) in a healthy 6.4 seconds and a top speed in excess of 150 mph (250 km/hr). In period the car was well regarded though the oil crisis of the 1970′s made the car somewhat difficult to sell and only 524 examples were built from 1973 to 1976. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale this 1974 Ferrari 365 GT/4 2+2. This particular car is an Australian delivered, factory RHD example, that is confirmed to retain its original ‘matching numbers’ engine. The car has books, including the original warranty card and jack kit. According to the Maranello Concessionaires Archives this car was delivered new in ‘Avorio the Tetrarch’ (ivory) with Beige 846 hide interior. The car was collected new from the Ferrari factory in Maranello by its first owner a Mr John Carroll Kelleher from Melbourne, Victoria on the 5th April 1974. This is confirmed by the original Italian registration documents that accompany the car. Mr Kelleher enjoyed his car in Europe for a short time, as evidenced by the stampings in the warranty card booklet, before it was imported into Australia. The car’s subsequent early history is not known, however, it was acquired by a well known Melbourne based Ferrari collector in the late 1980’s / early 1990’s who enjoyed the car for a few years before restoring it. It is understood at that time the car was repainted red. The car changed hands in the mid 1990’s and its next owner kept the car for almost twenty years before trading it on a Ferrari Testarossa. The car was then acquired by its next owner in April 2013, a well known classic car enthusiast / collector based in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. The car was used on a number of classic Ferrari rallies where it performed admirably. Today the car presents and drives beautifully. This 365 has obviously been very well cared for throughout its life, evidenced by the condition of the interior of the car which looks to be original. Finished in the fabulous colour combination of classic Ferrari red with a beige interior this car has a real presence about it. The paint work still retains a great depth of colour and high gloss. There are some stone chips and imperfections evident, but overall the paint work is in very good condition. The underside of this car is also excellent and consistent with the car’s overall condition and presentation. Similarly the external trim, lenses and glass are all in really good condition. The cabin is just a lovely place to be, presenting with just the right amount of patina. There are no rips or tears in the upholstery. Overall the car’s condition belies its age of 40 + years. Whilst this car looks the goods it really gets exciting when you turn the key. The engine starts easily and it soon settles into a smooth idle once it starts to warm up. Buckle up and away you go . . . on the move you realise that the car is tight on the road with no rattles or squeaks. It steers, handles and stops as you would expect. The gearbox is firm and the sycnhros are good, though second is a little notchy, particularly when cold. The big engine revs willingly and the car pulls strongly through the rev range. The oil pressure is good and the V12 sounds ‘just right’. The car has its original ‘matching numbers’ engine and it has books, including the original owner’s manual, warranty card, dealer directory and Voxson stereo instructions. There is also a jack kit. We have had the pleasure to handle a number of 365 GT/4’s over the last few years and this is one of the better ones. The Ferrari 365 GT/4 2+2 has to be the last of the relatively affordable classic front engined V12 Ferraris and this example now needs a new owner to use it and enjoy it! The odometer reads 83,143 miles which is believed genuine.
The Bentley motor car company was founded back in 1919 by brothers W.O. and H.M. Bentley. The Bentley brothers were involved in the motor industry having acquired the agency to sell French built DFP (Doriot, Flandrin & Parant) cars in 1912, however, they desperately wanted to build their own cars. So that they did and the first Bentley motor car, being just a chassis with a dummy engine, was shown at the 1919 London Motor Show and in late 1921 the first production Bentleys were built and delivered to their new owners. Bentley got the formula right and their cars proved to be luxurious, reliable and fast thus attracting buyers from the elite of society in period. The cars were also incredibly successful on the race track with Bentley achieving the ultimate success winning Le Mans in 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930. The difficult economic times in the late 1920’s had a major impact on Bentley and they stopped motor racing soon after winning Le Mans in 1930 and ultimately fell into receivership in 1931. Rolls Royce acquired the assets of Bentley in late 1931. In this period Bentley produced some fabulous motor cars including the 3 Litre, 4½ Litre, ‘Blower Bentley’, 6½ Litre and 8 Litre models that are all today highly sought after by enthusiast and collectors all over the world. The first new Bentley produced following Rolls Royce’s acquisition was the Bentley 3½ Litre which evolved into the Bentley 4½ Litre. Bentley’s of this era are also known as Derby Bentleys as they were built at Rolls Royce’s factory located in Derby in the north of England. Subsequent models included the Mark V, Mark VI and R-Type. Rolls Royce introduced the Silver Cloud and Bentley the S-Type in 1955. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer this lovely 1956 Bentley S-Type (S1). The Rolls Royce / Bentley factory build sheets confirm B493CM was delivered on the 28th August 1956 making it quite an early example of this elegant Bentley. The car was finished in sand over sable with a tan leather interior. The car has body number S1612 and it is fitted with engine number BC496. Both numbers are confirmed as correct by the build sheets. There are forty four pages of York Motors service records that accompany the car documenting its service history through until November 1977. The latest service document, from 18th August 1977, notes the car’s mileage as 102,603 miles. The records note that B493CM was sold to Mr C. Hoskings Esq. It is unknown exactly how long Hoskins owned the car, however, by 1965 the car had passed to a Mr James Kelleher of Kelleher & Co. The first service records in Kelleher’s name are from 7th April 1965 and note the mileage as 67,876 miles. It is understood Kelleher lived in Sydney and also had a property in Inverell near the NSW/Queensland border and he loved to use his Bentley for ‘high speed’ commutes. The current owner acquired B493CM off Gareth Will from TK Motors in 1996. By this time the car had fallen in to a poor state of repair and TK Motors completed significant mechanical work on the car, including an engine rebuild. The car’s new owner then carried out further restoration work including a repaint, fitted an alternator, fitted air conditioning and additional cooling system fans. The car was used on various club events and from time to time as a wedding car and special occasion’s limousine. Since the owner’s retirement B493CM has been regularly seen on Rolls Royce and Bentley club events. Whilst this car presents very well, it gets used as its makers intended it . . . and that is to be driven! The car has circumnavigated Australia and it also participated in an International Bentley Driver’s Club event that started in Vancouver, Canada, through the Rocky Mountains to Anchorage in Alaska and return. Don’t we wish these cars could talk! Today the car presents and drives really well. The ‘cirrus grey’ paintwork has a high gloss and is in good condition for a car that has been well used. There is the odd stone chip and blemish evident. The exterior trim, chrome and glass are in good condition. Overall the interior of the car is also in good condition. The tan leather upholstery is well presented with no rips or tears, the timber is excellent as are all of the instruments and controls. The carpets are showing some wear but more than serviceable. The car starts easily and it performs well on the road. The engine pulls strongly and the car shifts smoothly through the gears. The current owner has completed the simple maintenance tasks himself, however, the car has also been regularly maintained by Rolls Royce and Bentley specialists NBS Services in Brisbane. Prior to sale NBS went over the car and attended to a number of mechanical items. Accompanying the car is an original owner’s manual, a copy of the original Rolls Royce / Bentley factory build sheets, forty four pages of service records from York Motors, a partially complete tool kit, jack & accessories, a pump and spare wheel. The original radio is not fitted but will also accompany the car. In the photographs the car is shown with Queensland registration plates ‘Q1956’, however, it is being sold unregistered and these plates do not accompany the car. The owner of the car is open to discussing the purchase of the number plates by private treaty. Today the odometer reads 56,056 miles. The current owner is relocating and has made the difficult decision that it is time to pass on custodianship of his Bentley. Powered by a 4887 cc six cylinder engine these early Bentley’s are often preferred by purists over the later V8 engined cars. This car presents a fabulous opportunity to enter the world of classic Bentley ownership at a very competitive price point.

This beautiful T/Top T/Bird was purchased from the Vice President of the Vintage Thunderbird Club of North America. The T/Top option was only offered by Ford on the Thunderbird in 1978/79. They were limited in production and modified by a company called "Cars and Concepts Skylight" which had it's own international dealer network. The first factory T/Roof convertible Thunderbirds rolled off the Chicago assembly line on Wednesday, March 1st 1978 and the Los Angeles plant followed with it's first on Monday March 27th 1978. These T/Top's also known as T/Roof Convertibles are getting very hard to find in America, especially in this condition. A website registry of T/Top options currently registered in the USA shows approximately 19. They are very rare in Australia. I know of only one other at this time. The tempered glass roof panels remove easily and are stored in their own special padded pouches in the trunk (see photos). The vehicle is the ultimate "Summer Days" convertible or "Summer Nights" moon roof cruiser. The vehicle runs and drives perfectly. It is fitted with a brand new 351 ci Windsor engine recently rebuilt by the previous owner in America. I have rebuild paperwork and specs of the new long motor. Finished off with the dual exhaust system and Flowmasters the car runs and sounds sweet. The American racing wheels are in excellent condition with good tyres. I also have the original factory 12 slot rims if you prefer and they go with the car. The chrome, grille, and exterior trim and mouldings are original and in very good condition. The professional repainted exterior is in very good to excellent condition. It looks black in the shade or poor light but the actual colour is dark cranberry metallic. It is a Ford USA colour and I have the paint code and some touch up if needed. Most of the interior is original and very clean. The front and rear seats have been recently re-upholstered and has new hood lining. Also, new rubber weather stripping has been fitted to the doors. The trunk has also been recently recarpeted and the engine bay is very neat with the new engine (see photos). The sound system has been upgraded and is a big improvement on the original. The car is a delight to drive and has full Australian compliance. It is currently registered and comes with a RWC.
