1929 Packard 640 Custom Eight Phaeton 
The car was reported to have sold new to a Mr. Fairchild of Pennsylvania and held by his family until 1964. It was restored in 1964 by his son and driven on the famous Glidden Tour. It was sold to a known collector in Indiana in 1994 and I purchased the Packard in 2014. The older restoration has held up very well and the Packard can now be driven on any current Tour with confidence. From 2014 until the present time, it has been maintained and upgraded by restorer Bob McKeown in Ohio. The focus was to make it “Tour ready” and retain the charm of the older restoration. Inovices show over $22,000 spent from 2014 to 2108 to achieve the goal. Items replaced included the wiring harness, heavy duty battery cables, added turn signals in the running lights, a rebuilt water pump, radiator, etc. etc. The list is long and I would be happy to discuss it with any potential buyer. As you can see in the pictures, the Packard has a dual windscreen, new side curtains-PLUS the originals, a chrome stone guard and a compliment of period driving lights, sliding boy hood ornament and wind-wings. A personal inspection will also disclose how well the paint and chrome have been maintained over the years. Priced to sell at $120,000.
     
     
 
1948 Oldsmobile Dynamic Convertible 
This car was a California car sold new at Murphy Oldsmobile in Los Angeles to a respected allergy doctor. It was primarily used by his wife as her personal driver car. Their primary car was a chauffeur-driven Rolls. They eventually took this car to their Washington State cabin to use as a Sunday car at their vacation home. According to the paperwork with the car, it was sold after fifteen years to another doctor practicing in Washington State in the town of Colville. He kept the car only a year and passed it on to a lab tech at the same medical facility in Colville. He kept the car until 1978. The car went to the Greenman family where a father and son would oversee the complete restoration of the car during the 1980's. They sold it in 1989 and the car came to Connecticut where it has remained until I purchased it. The paint is excellent. It has been buffed to an incredible shine as can be seen in the pictures. There is no rust or bondo anywhere in the car. The top is new and works perfectly. The interior is also excellent. The leather is nice, the brightwork and instruments are all excellent. The engine bay is also spotless. It is very clean and indicative of the overall condition of the car. The car starts easily and runs beautifully. The emergency brake works, the windows all go down and up easily. The transmission shifts smoothly. The brakes are also excellent and stop the car confidently. All of the accessories work including all lights, interior lights, wipers, emergency brake, horn, etc. It is as well sorted as can be and ready to drive home. It has original factory fender skirts in excellent condition. It’s been well cared for since it was new and is ready to be a proud Sunday driver for anyone! $47,500.
     
     
 
1957 Fiat 1100 103 TV 
1957 Fiat 1100 103 TV Vignale Desiree Coupe This Fiat 100 103 TV Vignale Desiree is of huge importance in both Fiat and Vignale history, as it is one of three built by Fiat’s Special Race Shop to compete in the 1957 Mille Miglia. They ran and won in the Category “Tourism Special Class 1300cc” or “Turismo preparato” (Tourism Prepared) against the Peugeot 203, Lancia Appia, etc. The TV “Turismo Veloce” was not a standard Fiat 1100 103 model. It has a special engine tuned for the Mille Miglia. The engine developed 55 HP instead of the 40HP in the standard model. It also had a special Weber 36 DCLD 3 carb made on the same design of the ones installed in Ferrari’s, Maserati, etc. It was called “fuso in terra” meaning “fused to the land” because of the special construction process. ** (Note) The above information was assembled by Allesandro Bruni (Florence Italy) Historian This car is also important because the body was designed by Giovanni Michelotti, and built by Vignale Coachworks. Michelotti was one of the greatest free lance designers of automotive history. He designed early racing Ferraris, Alfa Romeos and other famous marques. I have the drawings on file that he sourced to Vignale for the build where the cars were hand built!! All three cars were finished in Silver and black as presented. Standard steel wheels were used for racing and wire wheels were on the car for Shows. I have both sets of wheels. I purchased the car in Italy and became the third owner from new. The original registrations are still with the car as well as the Italian license plates. This car has been invited to participate in the Mille Miglia Re-creation in Italy and also to grace the lawn at Pebble Beach. I am sure both invitations are still available to a new owner.
