1939 Fleetwood 60 Special Derham Leather Top Town Car, one of 4 known in existence, records of delivery when new in Philadelphia.  A very original Town Car with ownership history dating back to the early 70’s.  

1964 Eldorado with factory original colors, black paint and red leather.  29,000 miles, known history, last year for tail fins, x frame, and the mid engine placement (yes the ’59 to ’64 Cadillac’s were all very low slung x frames with engines placed low and well back the center of the front wheels).  These car don’t have the understeer or heaviness in front the later Cadillac’s had.  Most people can’t tell this due to their slow steering, soft springs, and period brakes, but they are far superior handling Caddy’s .  The seats below are perforated leather as original.  The dash and steering wheel are original and mint. 

1966 Eldorado with 65k original miles, factory bucket seats (and yes that is the original interior leather, wood, and carpet!) with console, and 50,000 original miles.

1967 Mercedes 250 SE, sunroof, automatic transmission, European model that was delivered new in Nuremburg.  Bare metal repaint in original color, all chrome, wood, and leather redone as well.  Thank you to Mercedes Benz Classic Center for your help and the original build data.  

1969 Mercedes 280SE  Bought from original family in Northern California where it was sold new to them.  One family owner until me. 

 

1981 Trans Am with 35,000 original miles and, even more remarkably, 100% original paint.  Factory T tops, cruise control, and rear defog.

1986 911 Carrera with 58,000 miles, rare full leather interior, sport seats, rear fog light, factory front chin spoiler and rear whale tail.  Very original and well maintained.  Solid little beast

1986 Pontiac Parisienne with extremely low miles and documentation.   Last year for the attractive rwd Pontiac.  Custom ordered when new.  Heavily optioned example.

1987 Cadillac Brougham with 7.5 Liter V8 engine.   This car has the rare 1988 only aluminum wheels with mandatory wire hubcaps.  I have had fun dressing it with regular period correct Brougham caps and then earlier Fleetwood Delegance color matched caps.  Yes this car has had the original factory installed Oldsmobile supplied by GM 5.0 Liter Oldsmobile gas V8 removed by the original owner and in its place resides a 1968/69 Oldsmobile 7.5 Liter with minor tweaks.  Turbo 400 transmission was installed to handle the extra power.  Smooth and quiet but now with the power to make driving comparable to a LT-1 powered Fleetwood.  Cruise control, AC/heat, climate control, etc., are all working as designed when new.

              1989 Formula 350 with 28,000 miles

 

1990 Cadillac Brougham with 9,000 miles

1992 Ls400, bought new in Dallas, went to Nashville for several years, and then returned to Dallas.  All of this under the original owner.  54,000 original miles, not low for most cars but very low for a LS.  Nakamichi, Air Suspension,  and Traction Control.  All original paint

2007 CLK63 with low miles.  Dallas Texas car since new.

 

2010 Ferrari California
