- 1975 Ducati 175 Sprint
- Specifications: 249 cc SOHC single, four speeds.\n\nHaving started life as a road machine, this narrow-case 250-cc SOHC bike was rebuilt for hill climbing between 1970-75. During that time it was raced by privateers in many local Italian events. It features minimalist construction appropriate to hillclimbs and sprints with clip-on bars, rear-set foot-pegs and a Veglia competition tachometer. It has Marzocchi forks and a four-speed gearbox, and the carburettor is a single Dell’Orto VHB 29AD. The bike rides on Borrani alloy rims with a racing twin leading-shoe drum brake fitted to the front. Presented in silver with a red frame, this Hillclimb Corsa is finished to racing standards. Addendum Please note this lot is offered without reserve.\n\nChassis no. DM175/08167\nEngine no. DM250/158910 RM Sotheby's
- 1968 Ferrari 330 GTC
- Specifications:\n300bhp, 3,967cc Colombo V12 engine, with triple Weber carburetors, rear-mounted\nfive-speed manual transaxle with single dry-plate clutch, tubular steel frame, four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 94.5"\n\nNothing more clearly shows the evolution of Ferrari into the premier constructor of grand touring automobiles than the 1966 Geneva Auto Show debut of the 330 GTC. Borrowing liberally from many successful Ferrari automobiles, it offered the 4.0-liter engine in a chassis closely patterned after the 275 GTB. Precision coachwork by Pininfarina combined a gorgeous nose borrowed from the 400 Superamericas with a prominent beltline from the doors back, culminating in a tail liberally taken from the 275 GTS. The thin-pillared, airy greenhouse owes little to any prior Ferrari but crisply reflects Pininfarina’s mastery of form and unifies this potentially disparate collection of design elements into a clean and refreshing form of its own.\n\nSo good was the 330 GTC’s design, in fact, that it was continued into the subsequent 4.4-liter 365 GTC model in 1968 with production ending in 1970. In keeping with its intended purpose for grand touring, the 330 GTC’s interior accommodations are both commodious and luxurious, with ample luggage room both in the trunk and behind the seats. Some 600 of the 330 GTCs were built in the years before it was succeeded by the 365 GTC, the most successful single model in Ferrari’s history and a model still coveted for its style, performance and luxury.\n\nThe 330 offered here is a spectacular original example that was recently purchased from the estate of a doctor after it had remained in storage for many years. Despite its impressive, unmolested condition and great patina at the time of purchase, Classic Showcase of Southern California performed a careful show/driver quality restoration to this original and well-kept Ferrari. The vehicle’s body was first stripped to its bare metal and then repainted the original black color with painstaking precision. Each part was painted separately from the car. The attention to detail of the base coat-clear coat, sanding, and buffing processes is evident in the outstanding finished product. With an eye for originality, the original brightwork was re-chromed by Classic Showcase’s experts as necessary. Rubber components were likewise replaced where needed. Integral to a Ferrari’s distinctive sound is that classic four-tipped exhaust system. A new unit was installed in this particular case.\n\nExtending through to the interior, the black leather seats were fully restored to show quality while new carpets were fitted and installed. Along with servicing the air conditioning system, Classic Showcase also performed a complete interior and exterior detailing, as highlighted in the CD accompanying the car, which outlines the entire restoration process. The powerplant under the hood is classic and, in this case, original Ferrari equipment. It has benefited from a major tune-up and sports the ever-awe-inspiring Weber carburetors. Additionally, this Ferrari also features a fully functioning AM/FM radio fed through an electric antenna.\n\nFrom its legendary Colombo V12 down to the shiny Borrani wire wheels, the Ferrari 330 GTC is the ultimate gentleman’s sports car with the pedigree to match. Presented here in full black, this particular Pininfarina-designed car has an aggressive, yet clean and elegant presence. As such, this perfect juxtaposition of timeless style and uncompromising performance, so common among Ferrari’s classic Grand Touring cars, makes for a coupe that is equally fitted for a leisurely cruise down the PCH or a more serious 300-horsepower jaunt around the country twisties.\n\nChassis no. 11403 RM Sotheby's
