'Award Winning' Ferrari could roll to $350,000 at Pebble Beach classics sale


We couldn't resist another quick look at Gooding and Company's upcoming Pebble Beach sale which is taking place this weekend, August 20-21.

The catalogue is like a car collectors dream, especially with highlights including this 1961 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster, offered from a "prominent Mercedes-Benz collection."

The hardtop car is titled as 1963, and hails from North America's West Coast where it undoubtedly spent many years cruising through the Californian sun.

Engine number 198.980.10.002959 is a 2,996 CC SOHC Inline Six-Cylinder capable of 250 BHP at 6,200 RPM and assisted by a 4-Speed manual gearbox.


The classic 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC, a bona fide competition winner

According to Gooding & Co's notes, this car is a verified matching-numbers example whose history includes painstaking restoration by some of the marque's finest specialists.

We wouldn't be surprised to see this car roar beyond $700,000-850,000 - there's even space to put your luggage. The motor's original tools and manuals are included in the sale.

Meanwhile, no top-level car auction would be complete without a Ferrari with coachwork by Pininfarina.

This 1967 Ferrari 330 GTC has pedigree to match its good looks, being a former 2008 FCA Platinum Award Winner and has been documented by Ferrari historian Marcel Massini.

Estimated at $275,0000-350,000, the 330 GTC has had "limited ownership" and less than 48,000 miles on the clock from new.

Under its bonnet is a 3,967 CC SOHC V-12 engine capable of 300 BHP at 6,600 RPM, sold with books and tools in case you run into any problems.
