Apple, Coco-Cola, McDonalds and Nike are brands recognisable the world over. So is Ferrari and interestingly the iconic Italian luxury sports car manufacturer was named The Worlds Strongest Brand in the 2019 Brand Finance Global 500 Report. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1939 out of Alfa Romeos race division as Auto Avio Costruzioni the company built its first car in 1940. The Second World War halted Ferraris dream, which was finally realised in 1947, when the first car bearing his name, the Ferrari125S, was built. From that day on Ferrari race cars dominated the world over, winning race after race and many world championships in Formula One, sports car racing and endurance racing. Ferrari built exclusive sports cars for the road too, but in the early days, this was primarily to fund his motor racing! The Cavallino Rampate or prancing horse was the symbol chosen by Ferrari and like the golden arches it is recognised by just about every man, woman and child on the planet! The Ferrari road cars from the 1940s and early to mid-1950s were built in very small numbers and it was not until the introduction of the 250 series cars that production numbers increased. Almost 1,000 Ferrari 250 GTEs were built from 1959 1963. The 250 series also contained some of the most special Ferraris ever built, including the Ferrari 250LM, 250 SWB, 250 California Spider and of course the 250 GTO. The 250 series cars were superseded by the 275 series cars, the 330 series cars and later the 365 series cars. The nomenclature designated the cubic capacity of each cylinder. So a Ferrari 330 was powered by a 12 cylinder engine of 3967 cc capacity. Ferraris iconic Dino was first shown to the world as a prototype at the 1965 Paris Motor Show. The car morphed into the 206GT of which only 150 cars were built from 1967 to 1969. This car was built with an all alloy body and had a 1987cc V6 engine. In 1969 the 246GT was released, which whilst a similar looking car in many ways was actually quitedifferent. The car sat 3 taller than its predecessor and the body was now built from steel. Mechanically the new car was powered by a 2418cc V6 engine. Enzo was keen to tackle Porsche head on and to do this he needed to increase production. The Dino was a hit and circa 4,000 of these cars (both the 246GT and 246 GTS) were built from 1969 to 1974. Concerned at how the world would accept his lower priced, affordable 6 cylinder sports car and concerned that a cheaper car may diminish the Ferrari brand, Enzo Ferrari decided the car would not carry the badge of the prancing horse. Rather it would simply be known as a Dino to also commemorate the life of his son who designed the 6 cylinder engine. Today the world knows the Dino as a Ferrari, and a real one at that! These beautiful cars are adored by car people across the world and good ones are most sought after. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a very special 1973 Ferrari Dino 246GT. This is an extremely rare Dino with the Campagnolo wheels, wing flares and leather Dino seats. The term chairs and flares is used for a Dino with Daytona style seats and the Campagnolo wheels and wing flares. It is often incorrectly assumed that chairs and flares option was a factory combination that had to be ordered together, however, this was not the case. The flares option could be ordered with standard Dino vinyl seats, leather Dino seats or Daytona style seats. It is understood that Ferrari only built 22 factory right hand drive Dinos with the Campagnolo wheels and wing flares. This is most likely the only example in Australia and the only example finished in oro chiaro, which itself is a rare and unique colour for a Dino. This car was ordered new by Mr Gregory Nathan who was an Australian living in London at the time. There is a copy of an original order for the car on file dated 17th September 1973 noting that the car was to be delivered on EE plates and Free Italian Border confirming the car was effectively a tourist delivery for Mr Nathan. The car had its first and second service at Maranello Concessionaires in the UK on the 15th October 1973. Mr Nathan subsequently imported the car into Sydney NSW. It was sold shortly thereafter to prestige car dealer Brents of Oakleigh in Melbourne and registered in Victoria as IET308. The cars second owner acquired this Dino on the 27th May 1975 and it remained in the same family for the next 37 years! The car was used and enjoyed early in his ownership before being parked up in 1985. The car was ultimately sold in October 2012 to a well-known classic car enthusiast in Melbourne who had the car totally refreshed mechanically. When the car was removed from storage it was an incredible time capsule with extensively original paint, original trim and it had only 29,443 km on the odometer. The mechanical refresh was entrusted to respected classic car specialists Historic & Vintage in Melbourne. There are receipts on file for in excess of $100,000 and the car was totally rebuilt mechanically. The brief was to maintain the originality of the car but to ensure it was mechanically sorted so it can reliably be used and enjoyed. The car was often seen at various classic car events or rallies in Victoria before it was sold in late 2016 to its next Sydney based owner. The car changed hands again in September 2017 when it was sold through Duttons in Melbourne to its current Brisbane based owner. Only a change in his circumstances have resulted in this rare and unique Dino being offered for sale. Today the car presents well, though as expected the paint shows some patina and it has some light crows feet and cracking in places. The most noticeable defects are a few small dents and paint discolouration on the nose and some panel damage to the right door and right hand front guard caused in a minor incident back in the mid 1970s. From say a meter the paint still presents pretty well. The wheels and all of the exterior trim, chrome and the glass are in good condition, showing some light patina. Inside the cabin the interior is in exceptionally good condition. The leather has preserved beautifully and the seats and door cards present well with no damage, rips or tears. Similarly the dash, steering wheel, instruments and controls are also very well presented. Even the carpets are in good condition. The car retains its original Voxson 8 track stereo which is a nice touch. Under the front of the car, the spare wheel area is always a good indicator of how well a Dino has been kept. They are often quite untidy here and on this car everything is in very good condition. Similarly, the boot remains in good original condition. Once youre behind the wheel you quickly feel right at home in a Dino. For an Italian sports car they are comfortable, ergonomically pretty good and the visibility is excellent. After priming the Weber carburettors and three pumps on the accelerator this car starts first time at the turn of the key. It immediately settles into a smooth idle whilst it warms up. Then after a few minutes you are on your way. It is immediately evident that the engine is on song and the car pulls strongly through the rev range. The car performs as one would expect. This Dino is tight on the road with no rattles or squeaks, it handles beautifully and the brakes pull the car up precisely. Not surprisingly, it drives exceptionally well given the major mechanical works undertaken back in 2013. The car has had a Ferrari Classiche inspection completed back in August 2017 and the process for certification has commenced. This car will not suit someone who is just looking for a Dino. Being a factory right hand drive example with Campagnolo wheels, wing flares and leather Dino seats, it is rare and unique. Additionally, there were not many Dinos originally finished in oro chiaro. According to Matthias Bartz Dino Compendium, there were only 33 cars in total. In addition to the specification, what makes this car unique is its originality. Today the odometer reads 37,846 km and as noted previously it is an incredible time capsule with extensively original paint and original trim. This Dino has a known history from new with a good history file, its original Dino jack, wheel chocks, some miscellaneous parts and its original tin of oro chiaro touch up paint which is noted as a special order on the original purchase invoice! Oldtimer Australia has had the privilege to sell a number of Ferrari Dinos over the years and this one is perhaps the most unique. Its specification (being a factory RHD example with Campagnolo wheels, wing flares and leather Dino seats), history, provenance, originality and overall condition make it something special. Highlights: A factory right hand drive example that has been in Australia since 1975. Rare specification, being a factory RHD example with Campagnolo wheels, wing flares and leather Dino seats. The car remained in single family ownership for 37 years from 1975 through until 2012. In excess of $100,000 spent on the car with a mechanical refresh in 2013. Confirmed as fully 'matching numbers'. The car looks to have original paint and original trim. Finished in a unique and stunning colour of 'oro chiaro'. The car has only travelled circa 38,000 km from new. An incredible time capsule Price: $679,950.

The Swallow Sidecar Company was founded in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley. In 1934 Lyons formed SS Cars Limited to effectively take over the operation from Walmsley. The SS brand was quite successful; though they had a reputation for having more show than go. The Jaguar name first appeared as a model name on an SS 2½ Litre Sports Saloon introduced in 1936. For political reasons, Lyons changed the name of his company to Jaguar Cars in 1945. Whilst the SS100 is indeed a fabulous car, it was the launch of the legendary Jaguar XK120 at the London Motor Show in 1948 that really put Jaguar on the map. The car caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The 120 in its name referred to its 120 mph top speed, which made the XK120 the worlds fastest production car in its day. It was available in two open versions, first as the roadster (designated OTS, for open two-seater), then also as a drophead coupé (DHC) from 1953. The car was also available as a closed or fixed head coupé (FHC) from 1951. The XK120 was succeeded by the XK140 which was launched in late 1954 and sold through until 1957. Whilst the XK140 looked similar to the XK120 there were in fact many subtle and indeed important differences. The XK140 featured a more spacious cabin and had improved brakes, suspension and steering. Visually the car had American style bumpers with overriders, a different grille (that had fewer, thicker vertical bars), a chrome strip on the bonnet & boot and an emblem Jaguar Winner Le Mans 1951-3 on the boot also. The final iteration of the XK was the XK150 that was released in 1957. Whilst its family resemblance to its forbearers is obvious the XK150 was in fact a very different car. Most noticeable was the change to a one piece windscreen and the smoother wing line from the front to the rear of the car. Cabin space was significantly improved making the XK150 a far more comfortable car to drive. Mechanically the first XK150s were similar to the XK140s, however, an SE variant with a modified cylinder head giving more power and an S variant with triple SU carburettors giving even more power were soon available. In 1959 engine capacity was increased from 3.4 litres to 3.8 litres. Like the XK120 both the XK140 and XK150 were offered in three body style being the roadster, drop head coupe and fixed head coupe. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale an absolutely stunning, fully restored Jaguar XK150 Roadster / Open Two Seater (OTS). This particular car is a North American delivered, factory left hand drive example. According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate on file this particular car was completed on the 9th October 1958 and despatched on the 21st November 1958 through Jaguar Cars in New York in the USA. The car was originally finished in black with a red interior and a black soft top. The cars first owner was RJ McLeod from New York City, USA. The car is documented in the following book: The Jaguar XK in Australia (1985) by John Elmgreen and Terry McGrath. The cars history stated below is an extract from that book: Owner: Jim Byrne, Lane Cove, Sydney, NSW Despatched 8th December 1958 to Jaguar Cars New York. Nothing further known until purchased in Los Angeles in 1981without motor, gearbox or trim by Jim Byrne and then imported into Australia. The car was in need of restoration and it was sold to Jaguar restorer Terry Hilton who on sold the car to the current owner in 1992 with a view to restoring the car for him. For a number of reasons the restoration did not start for many years and when it did, progress was extremely slow. Hilton moved towns at some stage and due to ill health most of his projects ground to a halt. In 2013 the car was given to Wolf Grodds Sleeping Beauties in Brisbane who basically started again. Sleeping Beauties is one of Australias leading high end restoration shops and they have restored cars that have been exhibited at the Pebble Beach Concours dElegance. The car was completed and exhibited at Motorclassica, which is Australias leading concours delegance and classic car show in 2015. The car has been used sparingly since and only travelled 1,494 miles since the restoration was completed. Today the car presents and drives like a freshly restored car. It is STUNNING! The only thing we can fault is that the soft top is not a perfect fit. In consultation with Sleeping Beauties, the owner chose to finish the car in a dark blue with a grey upholstery, blue carpets and a dark blue soft top. As you will see from the photographs this was a spectacular choice. The paint is fresh with a strong depth of colour and unmarked, with the exception of some very light scratching where the soft top sits once installed. The chrome is also vibrant and contrasts the dark blue paint perfectly. All of the external trim, badges, lights/lenses and the glass present like new. Inside the cabin, the car also presents like new. The leather is unmarked and it remains supple. All of the instruments and controls are in excellent condition and everything looks to be in working order. Even the carpets are like new, as is the soft top which has probably never been used. The owner chose to have a number of modern improvements fitted to the car when it was restored, including a Tremec T5 gearbox, EZ power steering, an all aluminum radiator with electric cooling fans, modern air conditioning and a Retrosound radio. He also chose to have the car upgraded to S spec and when you open the bonnet you immediately notice the triple carburettor set up. So whats it like to drive? Its fair to say it drives every bit as good as it looks . . . and perhaps even better! The engine starts easily at the first push of the starter button, even from cold. Theres no fuss, its just very easy and incredibly smooth. You want to drive it, but resist the temptation for a few minutes whilst the car warms up. After only a few hundred meters you immediately realise that this is not your everyday Jaguar XK! The throttle response is incredible and the car has loads of power on tap. The gearbox is smooth but precise and the EZ power steering makes the car so easy to manoeuvre at low speed. Importantly once you are fully motoring the steering is precise and direct. The suspension feels firm but balanced and there are no rattles or squeaks. The brakes are certainly 1950s but they more than adequately get the job done driving the car at legal speed. The car is accompanied by a Heritage Certificate, a thick file of restoration receipts, photos of the restoration, an owners manual, a tonneau cover, a jack and a (sparse) tool kit. Highlights: - A fully restored and immaculately presented Jaguar XK150 Roadster. - Restored by world renowned specialists Sleeping Beauties. - Restored with a number of modern improvements to make this a more usable classic car. - Finished in an absolutely perfect and STUNNING colour combination. - Exhibited at Motorclassica 2015. - Fully sorted and ready to enjoy. This classic Jaguar has just been serviced and it is ready for Summer and its next keeper. Price $249,950.

The car caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The XK120 morphed into the XK140 and ultimately the XK150 and in total, just over 30,000 cars were built over fifteen years of production. Jaguar introduced the E-Type at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, which like the XK120 all those years ago, took the motoring world by storm. The body styling was simply gorgeous and technologically the E-Type was an engineering masterpiece and it set new standards in all areas. Whilst automotive styling is somewhat subjective the E-Type is often ranked atop lists of the most beautiful cars and in fact, it has been described by Enzo Ferrari as the most beautiful car ever made. Jaguar could build sports cars but they were also very successful at building sports saloons. In 1955 the Jaguar Mk1 was introduced to fill a gap in the model range of a small to medium sized luxury saloon. Initially introduced with a 2.4 litre 6 cylinder engine and later a 3.4 litre 6 cylinder engine this model was very successful with some 38,000 examples sold between 1955 and 1959. In 1959 the Mk2 was introduced and whilst visually similar at first glance the new car had many improvements over its predecessor. In addition to the 2.4 litre and 3.4 litre engines the Mk2 was also offered with a 3.8 litre engine as used in the E-Type. Just over 80,000 Mk2s were built from 1959 to 1967. The Mk2 was to be replaced by the XJ6, however, delays with this car resulted in Jaguar producing another series of the Mk2 which was designated as the 240 and 340 to fall into line with the nomenclature used with other models on offer at the time, specifically the 420. The 240 and 340 were built from 1967 to 1969 andalmost 4,500 and 2,800 respectively of each model were built. The Jaguar Mk2 was also very successful on the race track winning events all over the world. One of the most successful teams was UK based John Coombs, who also developed a business selling Jaguar Mk2s upgraded with Coombs modifications. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1967 Jaguar Mk2 Coombs Tribute. This particular car is a factory right hand drive Jaguar 240 that has been upgraded with a number of Coombs modifications, including a 4.2 litre Jaguar engine. The early history of this car is not known, however, it is understood to have been a long term Queensland car. The car was registered in Queensland as 398 LHP. It was owned by an ex Leyland/Jaguar mechanic for many years and he passed the car down to his son. It was sold through the Classic Car Garage in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast in April 2011 to its next owner in Gympie who decided to upgrade the car with a number of Coombs modifications, including a Daimler 4.2 litre engine. The car was purchased by Jeremy Bests Cummins Classic Cars in Sydney who decided to go the full monty with the car undertaking further Coombs modifications. The decided to fit a 4.2 litre Jaguar engine that was rebuilt for one of Ian Cummins Jaguar E-Type race cars, but never used. The modifications and upgrades which make this car a very special Jaguar Mk2 include: - Race prepared 4.2 litre engine - Rob Beere billet alloy oil pump - Scorcher/Petronix ignition - Power-Lite starter motor - Uprated electric fuel pump and pressure regulator - 2 x 2 inch HD8 carburettors with alloy air trumpets and alloy air spreader copied from originals and sourced from Coombs engineer Ken Bell - Alloy radiator and electric cooling fan - 5 speed Getrag 260 gearbox (from a BMW) with overdrive 5th gear - Solid front cross member mounts - Uprated front sway bar - 30% stiffer front springs - Super-Pro suspension bushes - Koni dampers front and rear - 4 pot brake calipers with ventilated discs - Alloy cold air ducting for front brakes - Goodridge steel braided flexible brake lines - EZ electric power steering - D type gear knob - Coombes replica exhaust in stainless steel - Genuine Minilite knock on mag wheels - Period correct leather trimmed bucket seats - Louvred bonnet - Momo steering wheel - Various period correct stickers including Coombs dealer rear window sticker The engine was built up by Graeme Lord Engineering with Argo con rods, special 9.5 to 1 pistons, E-Type inlet manifold, E-Type camshafts, large volume oil pump with special flaps in the sump to help with oil surge, extractor exhaust fitted to a gas flowed big valve cylinder head with 3x 2 inch S.U carburettors giving 325 BHP at 5,800 rpm. When the engine was installed into this car it was done with a dual carburettor setup, most likely to get it to fit! Today this car presents pretty well, but it is all about the drive! When you approach the car the louvred bonnet and knock on Minilite wheels are the first giveaway that this is no ordinary Jaguar Mk2! You open the door, slide into bucket seat, get comfortable and then with great anticipation fire up the engine. Theres no doubt it means business! It has an edge for sure, but it is still relatively refined given its specifications. Immediately after getting mobile you appreciate the EZ power steering which make the car incredibly light on the road and easy to drive. The Getrag gearbox is firm and it is well suited to the car. Not surprisingly the engine has loads of power on tap and it is so incredibly responsive. The car handles and stops as you would expect. Make no mistake this car is quick . . . it is one heck of a drivers car! From say a meter the car presents well, but it is no trailer queen and on closer inspection, there are a number of stone chips and small blemishes in the paint evident. The most noticeable are some scratches on the left rear guard, adjacent to the boot. The panel gaps are pretty good and the car is clean underneath. The boot looks to be very original and whilst it is showing some wear there is no sign of any rust. All of the external trim, chrome, lights/lenses and the glass are in very good condition. The Mk2 enthusiasts will note that the slimline Jaguar 240/340 bumpers have been replaced with the traditional Mk2 bumpers without overriders. The condition of the interior of the car is comparable to the exterior. It is clean and tidy. The feature of the interior is the steering wheel and bucket seats, which like the bonnet louvres and Minilite wheels reinforce that this is no ordinary Jaguar Mk2! The upholstery is in good condition and there are no rips or tears in the seats. The door cards are clean, though they are starting to sag. The timber is clean with no cracks evident, though the dash is starting to show its age and it would benefit from a refurbish. All of the instruments and controls are also in good condition and everything looks to be in working order. The car was fitted with new Dunlop CR65 tyres in January 2018. Accompanying the car is a recent history file, documentation pertaining to the engine build back in 2003, a spare set of wire wheels, a spare wheel in the car, tool kit, hammer and jack. Its time for the ultimate game of cops and robbers! Price $79,950.

Apple, Coco-Cola, McDonalds and Nike are brands recognisable the world over.

Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1939 out of Alfa Romeos race division as Auto Avio Costruzioni the company built its first car in 1940. The Second World War halted Ferraris dream, which was finally realised in 1947, when the first car bearing his name, the Ferrari 125S, was built.

Ferrari built exclusive sports cars for the road too, but in the early days, this was primarily to fund his motor racing! The Cavallino Rampate or prancing horse was the symbol chosen by Ferrari and like the golden arches it is recognised by just about every man, woman and child on the planet! Twelve cylinder engines are synonymous with Ferrari. In fact, Enzo Ferraris very first car, the 1947 125S was powered by a 1.5 Litre V12 engine. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s the majority of Enzos masterpieces were powered by V12 engines of varying capacity. Interestingly all of these cars had the engine located in the front. Cross town rivals Lamborghini introduced their stunning Miura in 1966, which was powered by a transversely mounted V12 engine located behind the driver. This spectacular car took the motoring world by storm and sent shock waves throughout Ferrari HQ in Maranello. Ferraris answer, the 365 GTB/4 Daytona, was a fabulous motor car in its own right, but there was always something about the mid-engined sports car that gave it an edge. It took until 1971 for Ferrari to unveil its first mid-engined sports car, the 365 GT/4 Berlinetta Boxer. The Boxer was very well received and it ultimately went into production and replaced the Daytona in 1973. Interestingly Ferrari opted for a flat 12 rather than a V12 engine configuration. The engine was mounted longitudinally rather than transversely as Lamborghini did with the Miura. The Boxer was a great success for Ferrari and along with the Lamborghini Countach was one of the very real supercars of the seventies. The 365 GT/4 Berlinetta Boxer (387 cars built) was replaced by the 512 Berlinetta Boxer (929 cars built) in 1976, which was then replaced by the 512 BBi (1007 cars built) in 1981. The Boxer was ultimately replaced by the Testarossa (or red head so named to commemorate the fabulous Ferrari race cars of the 1950s the Testa Rossas) in 1984. Oldtimer Australia has had the privilege of selling a number of Ferrari 365 and 512 Berlinetta Boxers over the years and we know these cars very well. We are absolutely delighted to offer for sale this absolutely stunning 1978 Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer or 512BB as the car is often referred. Documentation on file from the Maranello Concessionaires Archives confirms that this particular car was ordered in December 1977 (order number 929). It was built in 1978 and finished in nero 20-B-619 (black) with a beige leather interior (VM3234) and corda carpets. There is an invoice on file dated the 10th April 1978 for GBP 21,863.71 to dealer Maltin Car Concessionaires Ltd in London. The car was sold to its first owner, Mr Stafford Pemberton Esquire on the 13th April 1978. The car has an exceptional history file with a known and documented history from new. There is a copy of the original service book which records 10 services through until the 12th September 1985 (28,000 miles). There are subsequent service receipts on file from marque specialists including Modena Ferrari, Nick Cartwright, Kent High Performance Cars, Italia Autosport and JD Classics. The engine was rebuilt in 2002 by Kent High Performance Cars at 39,715 miles. From 1984 through until 2010 there are receipts on file totaling almost GBP 80,000. There are also 15 MOTs on file, the earliest being from 1986/1987, as well as UK V5 registration certificates and other documents. Whilst in the UK the car carried the registration KCX954S. Interesting, the car was owned from 2010 2012 by 2009 Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button. The car was acquired in the UK in July 2012 by its current Melbourne based owner and subsequently imported into Australia. There is an Import Approval on file dated 23rd October 2012. Soon after arriving in Australia the car was complianced and registered in Victoria. At that time the odometer was 49,580 miles. The owner of this Ferrari 512BB is fastidious to say the least and over the next few years he embarked on a journey of taking a very very good car to the next level. The car was taken back to bare metal and repainted by restoration specialists, Concours Restorations based in Geelong. The body was found to be in excellent condition with very little rust for an English car. Since arriving in Australia the car has been religiously maintained by marque specialist Hughes Supercar Services. This car has received a number of subtle improvements to make it a more usable classic, including: a modern air conditioning system, EZ electric power steering, a clutch booster, modern electric radiator fans, a high powered starter motor and a modern Becker radio/CD with blue tooth & hands free. In 2018 Hughes Supercar Services installed a Gripper Differential, upgrading a recognised weak spot on a Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer. This is a beautifully presented and fully sorted example of Ferraris iconic Berlinetta Boxer. The paint work is in excellent condition all round. It has recently been ceramic coated and it has an incredible high gloss finish with a strong depth of colour. The car has had the nose and all four wheel arches wrapped in clear protective film. Blemishes are very hard to find, however, the car is no trailer queen and it does get driven so there are a few . . . but you have to look hard! The most noticeable mark is a small chip below the front left indicator, which is most likely in the film rather than the paint. There are a few small chips on the front bumper and front spoiler. All of the exterior trim, lenses, glass and wheels are in excellent condition and compliment the paintwork nicely. The car is running a set of correct Michelin XWX tyres. Apart from giving a Boxer the right look a good set of XWXs make a massive difference as to how these cars drive. Inside the cabin this car is also beautifully presented. The interior, which was re-trimmed by Sussex Trimming in England prior to the car being exported to Australia, remains like new. All of the instruments and controls are crisp, clean and in working order. Open the front and rear clams and the engine bay and front storage compartment are both exceptionally clean and well kept. Whilst this Ferrari 512BB is impeccably presented, as with any Ferrari it is really all about the drive and that mighty engine! The flat 12 on this car starts easily and it soon settles into a smooth idle. On a beautiful sunny Brisbane morning everything warms up quickly and you are ready to go. First impressions are that this car is a really well sorted example. It is incredibly tight on the road and the engine pulls like a train. The lightness of the EZ power steering is immediately noticeable at parking speed but once you are on the move it is precise and direct. The suspension feels firm but balanced and there are no rattles or squeaks. The gearbox feels really tight and with a firm precise movement of the gear lever through the gate the car changes up and down through the gears easily. The air conditioning blows ice cold, the car is comfortable and it is just a delight to drive. The car was shown at Motorclassica in 2016 and it won the Modern Classic Sports & Performance Over 3 Litre class. A photo of the car at Motorclassica is featured in the January 2017 issue of Thoroughbred & Classic Cars. This car is part of a significant classic car collection and after 8 years of ownership the owner has decided to offer this fabulous Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer for sale. We have handled a number of 365 and 512 Boxers over the years and none have presented any better than this car. Accompanying the car are books (in the correct pouch), an incredibly comprehensive history file, an original spare parts manual, an original sales brochure, a complete briefcase style tool kit, jack kit, space saver spare wheel, a rare and desirable Schedoni 512BB luggage set (understood to be 1 of only 28 pieces ever made), seat covers, a car cover and a number of spare parts. Theres even an original set of Michelin XWX tyres from 1978! It should be noted that the warranty card in the book set is not original to this car. Perhaps it was inadvertently switched with another car during a service at some stage. Importantly there is a photocopy of the original warranty card on file. Whilst any Ferrari Boxer has a presence on the road, theres no doubt this black knight has a presence on the road like no other! Today the odometer reads 56,057 miles, which is documented as genuine. Highlights: - A UK delivered, factory right hand drive example that is matching numbers. - Finished in its original and STUNNING colour combination of nero (black with a beige interior. - Book set in the original wallet. - Original tool kit and jack kit. - Schedoni 512BB luggage set. - Known and documented history with maintenance records from new. - Previously owned by Jenson Button. - A former class winner at Motorclassia. - A fully sorted example that is ready for its next owner to use and enjoy. Price $569,950 Foot Note: Perhaps the best and most respected classic car magazine available today is Octane. One of the more interesting columns is The Aesthete written by Stephen Bayley. In issue 206, Bayley writes . . . people think that BB stands for Berlinetta Boxer, but it does not. The 512 is not a Berlinetta (it means little saloon), nor is it actually a boxer. Let me get this right, but I think that a Boxer engine is where two con-rods share the same crank throw. The 512s is a V12 that has been flattened. The erudite suggest BB for bialbero, Italian for twin-cam. But thats hardly a unique feature. They could have called it Poston 512. Or a Sump 512. Instead, designer Leonardo Fioravanti has explained that BB stands for Brigitte Bardot, the eternal female whose appearance in a wet dress in Roger Vadims Et Dieu Crea la Femme of 1956 was a landmark, if thats the right word, in cinema. Let the debate begin . . .

The Sunbeam Motor Car Company dates back to 1905, even though the first Sunbeam car built dates back to 1902. The British company soon developed a reputation for building good quality sporting cars. Sunbeam dabbled in motor racing and built a number of successful racing cars and land speed record cars. Unfortunately the advent of the first World War was the beginning of the end for Sunbeam. The company was taken over by Darracq in 1920 and whilst they kept building Sunbeam motor cars the end was imminent. Sunbeam was placed into receivership in 1934 and sold to the Rootes Group. Rootes started building cars under the Sunbeam-Talbot brand in 1936, producing a number of different models through until 1954. It was in 1953 that Rootes decided to brand their new open sports car the Alpine as a Sunbeam rather than a Sunbeam-Talbot. In 1959 Sunbeam introduced a new smaller sports car that was also called an Alpine. This car was a great success and in excess of 67,000 examples were built spanning five series through until 1968. The Alpine was a well regarded sports car, but it was quintessentially a small engined British sports car that had more show than go. Rootes believed their car could be a world beater if it had a bigger, high performance engine. Negotiations with Ferrari for them to build a special engine for the Alpine failed and a deal was ultimately done with none other than Carroll Shelby to fit a Ford V8 into the Alpine. The Sunbeam Tiger was born. Shelby completed the development of the car and he was planning to build them, like he did with Cobras, but that wasnt to be. The Sunbeam Tigers were built by Jensen in the UK with Shelby receiving a royalty for every car built. The Tiger entered production in 1964 and it was very well received in period. In total just over 7,000 Tigers were built spanning 4 years of production through until 1967. The Sunbeam Tiger Mk1 was powered by a Ford 260 cu in V8 engine and this model accounted for the majority of Tiger production. In an attempt to further improve the performance of the car, Sunbeam introduced a Tiger Mk2 in 1967 which was powered by a Ford 289 cu in V8. Rootes was taken over by Chrylser in1967 who would not allow the Tiger to be built with a competitors engine. Production was ceased after only 633 Mk2s had been built. The majority of the Sunbeam Tigers that were built were delivered into the USA. Perhaps the best known Tiger of them all belongs to Agent 86, Maxwell Smart, in the spy comedy series Get Smart. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1964 Sunbeam Tiger Mk1. This early Tiger was a North American delivered car from new that found its way to Australia in 2016. There is an import approval on file dated 19th July 2016. The cars early history is not known, however, there is a file with many old receipts and other documentation on file dating back to 1990. There is a Washington state title from 2012 (in the same name as the owner in 1990) and a Californian state title from 2016 that is signed over to the current owner. At the time of sale on the 6th July 2016 the odometer was at 54,879 miles. There is documentation on file from the previous California based owner stating that the car was a long term keeper for him and it was only sold due to his ill health. Prior to sale it is noted the cars cooling system was upgraded, which included fitting a new high volume water pump, new radiator hoses, the original 4 blade fan was replaced with a 5 blade fan and the radiator cleaned and checked. At this time new tie rod ends were fitted, the steering rack refilled, the generator & voltage regulator replaced and a new slave cylinder installed. The car received a rolling restoration from 2005 through until 2014 and as a result the car presents beautifully today. According to the data tag in the engine bay this Tiger was originally finished in carnival red, the colour of the car today. The paintwork is in excellent condition, retaining a high gloss and strong depth of colour. There is the odd minor blemish evident, but you have to look hard! All of the exterior trim, including the chrome, lenses, badges and the glass are in very good condition, though there is some very slight tarnishing on some of the chrome. The wheels are also in very good condition and a real feature on a Tiger! They are shod with Toyo tyres all round. Inside the cabin, the contrasting black interior is in excellent condition. All of the upholstery is unmarked and there are no rips or tears. The dash is also very good and all of the Jaeger instruments and the controls are crisp and clean. The soft top is also in excellent condition. The engine bay and boot are also extremely clean and very well presented. So whats it like to drive? Its a blast! You turn the key and the growl from under the bonnet is totally unexpected, even though you know its a Tiger. This car is kind of like a Morgan Plus 8 in this regard. The big V8 soon settles into a smooth idle and after letting things warm up it is good to go. Your immediate impressions are really positive. You can certainly feel the weight in the front of the car, but in saying that it is well balanced. After a few miles you realise that this is a very well sorted car that is ready to be used. It is surprisingly tight on the road and with that big V8 up front you just want to give it the beans! The engine pulls strongly, the gearbox is good (though shifting requires a firm hand until it warms up) and the car handles and stops as you would expect. The rawness of this car is quite intoxicating. The car looks really good with the hard top fitted, and whilst it is a two person job, it is light and easy to remove/refit. Similarly, the soft top is easy to raise and lower, once you know how! The car is listed on the Australian and New Zealand Tiger Register and the previous owner(s) were members of the California Association of Tiger Owners. Accompanying the car is a rare factory hard top, all the original parts (including the steering wheel, cam covers and exhaust manifold), a history file and a Sunbeam owners handbook. There is a spare wheel, jack and a wheel brace in the boot. Today the odometer reads 55,233 miles. Not surprisingly Shelby got it right and these junior Cobras are good news and offer great value for money. Now heres an opportunity to join Agent 86 behind the wheel of a very cool car!
