Citroen is one of the worlds most iconic and innovative automobile manufacturers. Founded by André-Gustave Citroen in 1919, the company produced its first motor vehicle, the Citroen Type A, immediately following the First World War. Prior to this and during the War, Citroen supported France by manufacturing armaments from its then modern factory. Throughout the War, Citroen realised that he had to plan for the future and decided he would manufacture motor vehicles once peace returned to Europe. In the early years Citroens plans were to bring mass production to Europe using the principles developed by Henry Ford. In 1934 Citroen introduced the 7CV or Traction Avant which today is recognised as one of the most important automobiles ever built. The Traction Avant pioneered unitary body construction (with no separate chassis), four wheel independent suspension and front wheel drive. The early 1930s were tough times for Citroen and the company ultimately filed for bankruptcy in December 1934. Andre Citroen passed away in July 1935 after losing his battle with cancer at the relatively young age of 57. Michelin subsequently took over Citroen and the company went on to become a power house of French industry. The Citroen brand is synonymous with innovation, however, their cars were also well built and very reliable. Other key milestones in Citroens history were the introduction of the Deux Chevaux or 2CV in 1948 and the Goddess DS Series cars in 1955 (which featured a hydro pneumatic self-levelling suspension system, a high pressure hydraulic system, disc brakes and later swivelling headlights). What is often overlooked is that Citroen has a rich motorsport pedigree, particularly in rallying, where it has won many events and championships over the years. Citroen always had a vision to build a sporting version of their iconic DS series cars. The missing piece of the puzzle was found following Citroens acquisition of Maserati in 1968. Citroen decided to use a Maserati engine to power their new sports saloon. The result was the Citroen SM, first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1970. It went on sale in France in September of that year. Citroen only built left hand drive SMs, although right hand drive conversions were done in the UK and Australia. The SM was a success for Citroen with 12,920 examples built from 1970 through until 1975. The majority of the cars were built in 1971 and 1972. The oil crisis in 1973 and Citroens bankruptcy in 1974 ultimately led to the demise of the SM. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a rare and unique Citroen SM. This particular car was built in April 1973 for the US market. It has the SD chassis number prefix which designates the car has the 3.0 litre engine (with carburettors) and automatic transmission. It is understood that the car was imported into Australia when new, converted to right hand drive by Chappell Engineering and sold new by Victorian Citroen distributors Duttons. The car was originally pearl grey metallic with a tabac (brown) interior. It is rumoured that this car was shown at the London Motor Show, however, this is not proven. This is a four owner car. The car passed through two owners before being acquired by the previous to current owner in 2002. He immediately embarked on a nut and bolt concours standard restoration. This task was entrusted to world renowned Brisbane restoration company Sleeping Beauties. The restoration was completed in 2004 at a cost exceeding $250,000. The car is well known to Oldtimer Australia, having been sold by us to the current owner some 12 months ago. Unfortunately, a change in his circumstances has resulted in the car being offered for sale. This car has been used and not kept as a show car, therefore, it presents as an older restoration. That said the car presents and drives exceptionally well. The colour combination of silver with a green roof is stunning and a perfect choice for the car. The paint work is still in excellent condition with the odd blemish or imperfection evident that is consistent with its age. All of the exterior trim, glass and lenses are in good condition, though there is some light pitting and scratches evident in some of the chrome. The interior remains like new, with the green leather a striking colour contrast. The cabin is just a lovely place to be. The instruments and control are in good condition and everything is in working order, including the the air conditioning which blows cold air. Not surprisingly the starting procedure for the SM is basically the same as the Maserati Merak. Turn the key to energise the fuel pumps and get fuel in to the carburettors, three pumps on the throttle and then turn the key. This SM starts easily from cold and settles into a smooth idle. Quickly the hydraulic system charges and the car adjusts its ride height. Its quirky but very cool! Driving an SM is a unique experience. All of the controls are very sensitive, yet incredibly precise and direct. You get the hang of it quickly and the self-centring steering is actually really good. After a few miles you think to yourself . . . I really get this car. This is a very good example. It is easy to drive, yet it has plenty of performance on tap when needed. The real surprise is just how incredibly smooth it is to drive . . . the ride, the handling and the gear change are all silky smooth. Under the bonnet it is clean, neat and tidy. Importantly the car is mechanically sorted and the hydraulics work as they should. The car was serviced just over 12 months ago, prior to being offered for sale previously, and it is now ready for a new owner. The car is really an engineering masterpiece. It looks like nothing else (except a Citroen!), it is technologically brilliant and is perhaps best described as a sporting Rolls-Royce! Price: AUD $99,950.

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 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!
