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. Ferrari wanted to continue with his tradition of producing high performance ‘Grand Touring’ cars and needed a successor to the 365 GT 2+2 and 365 GTC. He opted to continue with a 2+2 configuration – enter the 365 GTC/4. The Ferrari 365 GTC/4 was first shown at the 1971 Geneva Motor Show and the unique Pininfarina design took some styling cues from its ‘big brother’, the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. It shares the same chassis and engine block from the Daytona but the focus on this car was to ensure it was a comfortable, luxurious, high performance GT car. It had power steering, electric windows and air conditioning as standard. The model received good reviews in period and 505 cars were built in a short production run from 1971 to 1972. It was succeeded by the wedge shaped 365 GT/4 2+2. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4.This particular example is a very rare factory right hand drive example (1 of 31 delivered new to the UK) and it was purchased in February 2011 and imported into Australia by its previous owner back in May 2012. The car has a known history from new. It was ordered on the 8th January 1971 with exterior colour ‘grigio le sancy’, light blue upholstery with dark blue carpets. The car was finally delivered to its first owner a Mr Bert Caira from Dundee in Scotland in May 1972! The car is understood to have passed to its second owner, Maurice Ravens, in 1988 and then its third owner, Michael Berry, in 2004. The car’s fourth owner acquired the car through UK Ferrari specialists DK Engineering in February 2011. The car underwent a major refurbishment in 2005 which included an engine rebuild and repaint. The mechanical works were completed by Ferrari specialist Kent High Performance Cars. Once the car was imported into Australia its fastidious owner decided to have the paintwork redone and the interior re-trimmed in black leather. This car is very well known to Oldtimer Australia having been sold by us back in June 2015 to its current owner. The mileage at that time was 31,324 miles. The car joined a significant collection and now a change in circumstances has resulted in this stunning GTC/4 being offered for sale. The car has been sparingly used in the last three years and today the odometer reads 31,925 miles. Today the car presents and drives beautifully. The paintwork is excellent as is all of the chrome and the trim. Given the interior has been re-trimmed within the last thousand miles or so it is ‘like new’ and the cockpit is a lovely place to be. The car starts on the button and the engine pulls strongly, as you would expect given it has only done circa 12,000 mile since it was rebuilt. The car is tight on the road with no rattles or squeaks. The car has been meticulously cared for since arriving in Australia and it has been regularly serviced and maintained. The car is fitted with ‘as new’ Borrani wire wheels, which were an option new and they really suit the car. The original Cromodora alloy wheels and a set of colour coded fibreglass bumpers will accompany the car. To ensure this car is a more usable classic the previous owner has fitted Black Stallion electronic ignition, a modern A/C system which blows ice cold air and electronic cooling fans to improve the efficiency of the cooling system. The previous owner also complained of a noisy gearbox when he first got the car and swapped the aluminium case gearbox from this car with a steel case gearbox from a 365 GT/4 2+2. Highlights: – A UK delivered, factory RHD example. – Full books in the correct leather wallet. – Original brief case tool kit and jack kit. – Fitted with Borrani wire wheels. – The original Cromodora wheels accompany the car. – Fitted with Becker radio. – Has a custom car cover. – A comprehensive history file. – With only (circa) 40 factory RHD Ferrari 365 GTC/4’s built, these cars are very rare with perhaps only six or seven examples remaining in Australia.
The legend that was to become Rolls Royce was founded in May 1904 when a deal was struck between Frederick Henry Royce and Charles Stewart Rolls. Shortly after, the first Rolls Royce motor car – the Rolls-Royce 10hp – was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in December 1904. It was agreed that Rolls Royce would initially manufacture four different models being a two cylinder 10hp model, a three cylinder 15hp model, a four cylinder 20hp model and a six cylinder 20hp model. It was immediately apparent that to manufacture their cars, Rolls Royce would require a larger factory and the decision was made to establish their headquarters and manufacturing facility on the outskirts of Derby in the east midlands of England. On the 15th March 1906 the company Rolls Royce Limited was formed and during this year Royce had been developing an improved six-cylinder model with more power than the 30hp. Initially designated the 40/50hp, this was the company’s first all-new model that became known as the Silver Ghost. Introduced in 1907, the 40/50hp or Silver Ghost remained in production until 1926. Originally powered by a 7,036cc six-cylinder engine, this was increased to 7,428cc in 1909 and following rave reviews was designated by the English car magazine Autocar as ‘the best car in the world’. Like all car manufacturers Rolls Royce was impacted by the First World War, however, post war the company made a strategic decision to manufacture a cheaper smaller car, enter the Rolls Royce 20hp. This model was a great success and it was produced alongside the Silver Ghost and its successor the Phantom, ensuring the Rolls Royce motor car company would survive and prosper. In 1931 Rolls Royce acquired the Bentley motor car company. The Silver Ghost was an outstanding success and incredibly a total of 7874 cars were produced from 1907 to 1926.It is understood that some 200 cars were sold new in Australia. A hard act to follow indeed, enter in 1925 the Rolls Royce ‘New Phantom’ known later as the Phantom 1. Although it used the same chassis as the Silver Ghost, the Phantom featured a new 7668 cc six cylinder engine. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for a sale a fabulous 1924 Rolls Royce Springfield Ghost. The car is chassis number S64LK, with engine number 22643 and body number WC914. The pickwick style coachwork was completed by Willoughby & Co and features four individual seats, two fold down occasional seats, foot rails, a wind down glass division, megaphone, hand straps & compendiums, complete with an extendable cigar lighter and roller blinds to complete the rear cabin fitout. It is one of the relatively rare right hand drive examples built at the Rolls Royce factory in Springfield Massachusetts in the USA. S64LK is understood to be one of the last 25 cars built with two wheel brakes and right hand drive. The Americans then converted to four wheel brakes, three speed gearbox and left hand drive. The car was completed in December 1924 and delivered to its first owners, the Swindells family, on the 6th August 1925. Interestingly in 1925 Mr F Swindells of Rockville Connecticut ordered two cars – one for himself and another for his wife. Both were to be chauffeur driven. S64LK was chosen as the car for Mrs Swindells. As it was to be used mainly around town, it had a very low geared diff fitted. The car remained Mrs Swindells personal transport from 1925 until 1933. Following the passing of Mr & Mrs Swindells the car was kept in storage by the family for many years. The car was eventually sold to a gentleman in North Hampton who, shortly afterwards, decided to part with it and it was purchased by a Mr Ron McLeod of Bridgeman Downs in Brisbane, Australia. This was circa 1989 and Ron arranged for Wolf Grodd and Joe Wilson of world renowned restoration company Sleeping Beauties to refurbish the car. In 1997 Dr John Matheson of Sydney, Australia acquired S64LK and used it on a number of international rallies. In 1998 it was entered in the Monte Carlo Voitures Anciennes Rallye (it won 3rd place overall and 2nd place for originality in the Concours d’Elegance), then in 1999 the Silver Ghost Association Tour of South Africa and finally in 2000 the Silver Ghost Association Tour of the south island of New Zealand. In 2006 John decided to part with the car and the previous to current owner became the next proud custodians of S64LK. This car is very well known to Oldtimer Australia having been sold by us back in May 2015 to its current owner. The mileage at that time was 54,650 miles. The car joined a significant collection and now a change in circumstances has resulted in this stunning Springfield Ghost being offered for sale. The car has been sparingly used in the last three years and today the odometer reads 54,675 miles. S64LK has very low mileage for a Silver Ghost. Interestingly the only ‘real drivers’ of the car were Mrs Swindells (or at least her chauffer!) and Dr Matheson. The rest of the time she has relaxed in storage, been on display in a museum or used sparingly for Rolls Royce club events and social outings. The current condition of the car can only be described as excellent and its condition certainly belies a car that was restored some twenty-five years ago. The paint, bright work and trim are all in excellent condition. The interior remains pretty much as it was when restored 25 years ago . . . it’s just beautiful! The engine bay is also clean and well kept. The car has been regularly serviced by a Rolls Royce specialist and had its radiator rebuilt prior to being sold in 2015. The car starts easily and out on the open road the car performs as it should. The engine pulls strongly and the car handles and stops efficiently. Everything works as it should, including the vacuum windscreen wiper. The car is very original except for the flashing turn indicators which have been discreetly fitted into the existing lights for modern day safety. On a recent test drive, the car performed faultlessly confirming SHD30 is ready to use. It is pertinent to note that with the low ratio diff the car’s optimum cruising speed is 45 mph. There’s something to be said about the statement “. . . they don’t make them like they used to” and this fabulous Rolls Royce is certainly a testament to that. This car is Rolls Royce style and elegance personified!
Following the Second World War much of the Messerschmitt factory had been destroyed and the company was no longer allowed to manufacture aircraft. In order to survive, they turned their hand to manufacturing other commodities including scooters. Fritz Fend, the designer and manufacturer of the Fend Flizer three wheel invalid carriage, approached Messerschmitt with the ideas of building a kabinroller or “scooter” with a cabin. This idea soon became reality and the Messerschmitt KR175 was born. Around, 15,000 cars were built before the KR175 evolved into the KR200 in 1955. Whilst a very similar car in many ways the KR200 had many improvements over its predecessor and it was a great success. The KR200 was powered by a 191cc Fichtel & Sachs air cooled, single cylinder, two-stroke engine positioned in front of the rear wheel, immediately behind the passenger’s seat. This provided a marginal increase in power from the KR175’s 174cc engine. The aircraft-inspired design is both very unique and very clever and the side opening canopy to allow access to and from the cabin is just brilliant! Another unique feature of these little cars was that they had no reverse gear as such. By pushing and turning the ignition key (rather than just turning to start) in fact started the car with the engine running backwards. This meant the car could in theory travel as fast backwards as it could forwards! In 1956 Messerschmitt was allowed to manufacture aircraft again and they lost interest in the microcars. Fend subsequently purchased Messerschmitt’s Regensburg works and the rights to continue to build the little cars. The cars were subsequently known as FMR Messerschmitts. Subsequently, a KR200 convertible model and later a KR201 Roadster were also built, however, it was the four-wheel FMR TG500 (or Tiger) that was the ultimate version. Some 40,000 of these cars were built in ten years of production through until 1964. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer a 1960 Messerschmitt KR200 Cabriolet. This car is well known to Oldtimer Australia having been previously sold by us to its current owner some twelve months ago. The car is reluctantly offered for sale due to a change in his circumstances. Prior to this, the car came from a long-term owner who acquired it as a project some twenty years ago. He restored the car and has used it sparingly since, attending the occasional micro car club event and classic car show in and around Sydney. The car’s prior history is not known though it is understood to have been a long-term Sydney car. Today this car presents and drives fabulously. Whilst it is an older restoration the paintwork is bright and in excellent condition with only the odd minor blemish noticeable on closer inspection. All of the exterior trim, badges, lenses etc look to be correct and also in excellent condition, consistent with the rest of the car. The interior is ‘just lovely’ and all of the switches and gauges are in working order. The steering wheel, which often develops hairline cracks in the ceramic coating on Messerschmitts, is also in good condition. Mechanically the car is ‘on the button’. It starts easily, the engine pulls strongly and it changes up and down the cars quite smoothly. Out on the open road, the little beast keeps up with modern traffic, handles well and stops as one would expect. In summary, the car runs and drives as it should. The red exterior with the contrasting white interior (with red piping) is a fabulous colour combination for a Messerschmitt. And whilst all Messerschmitts are ‘very cool’ and highly desirable, there’s no doubt the cabriolet is the most desirable model. There is a copy of the original owner’s manual that will accompany the car. You get great value ‘smile per mile’ in a Messerschmitt . . . a unique opportunity!
