A 1937 Packard 120 Straight 8 Rumble-Seat Convertible Coupé

Lot 17: A 1937 Packard 120 Straight 8 Rumble-Seat Convertible Coupé

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD62,500 - AUD70,000

Description: A 1937 Packard 120 Straight 8 Rumble-Seat Convertible Coupé Chassis number 290166 Engine number The luxury American Packard marque was in existence from 1899 until 1958. At the height of its success before the second world war, it was widely regarded as one of the premier luxury automobile manufacturers. This superb example of the Packard 120 Straight 8 is an original right hand drive bodied convertible coupe with rumble-seat. It was first owned by Mr W.W.Thayer, a former Attorney-General and the acting Governor of Hawaii. He was also a Scout Commissioner and in this capacity visited Australia in 1938 along with his wife who was the president of the Hawaiian Humane Society. This 1937 Packard is in resplendent condition with a very interesting provenance and fully documented history file. This rare Packard was an export RHD model loaded on to a ship bound for Melbourne, Australia, its final destination to be the Packard agents at the time, Kellow Faulkner. Whilst the ship was on a stop over in Honolulu, Thayer who wanted a prestigious RHD car as he was deaf in his left ear and felt it safer to drive with his good ear to the traffic so it is said, was made aware of this Packard. It was therefore unloaded and had affixed to the cowl, the brass delivery plate bearing the local Packard agent's name, Von Hamm-Young. Thayer was 67 years of age when he took possession of this Packard convertible and despite petrol rationing during the war years, clocked up 85,000 miles until 1955 when the car went to its second owner. Thayer was a recipient of the 'Silver Buffalo" award which since 1925 has only been presented 718 times, 14 of them to American Presidents. Wade Thayer's veteran's key return tag is still attached to the original Briggs and Stratton keys. The second owner of the car in Honolulu was local businessman Walter Reinhardt, along with his wife June a collector of cars, and the Packard according to records did approximately just 350 miles from 1955 until the turn of the century 45 years later. The Reinhardts retired to California in 1962 and the Packard was stored in Honolulu until 1971 when it was then shipped to California. Upon the death of Walter Reinhardt his widow sold off their cars and this Packard was shipped to Melbourne, where it was again garaged for another 12 years. The current owner aware of the vehicle's presence in Ballarat in the State of Victoria purchased the vehicle. The Packard was still in very good original condition, without rust or damage. Engine wear was moderate. Work carried out by the present owner is as follows: New windscreen glass and re-plating of pillars New body mounts Fuel tank treated and gas gauge unit Front end ball joints New rear wheel bearings All brake cylinders sleeved with stainless steel new linings, drums ground, silicone brake fluid NOS main and big-end bearings, new piston rings, valve grind, brass welsh plugs, manifolds machined, all engine bolt-ons re-built, new clutch and thrust, flywheel surfaced NOS oil pump Interior trim replaced to original patterns. Front seats trimmed in leather as per original. This rare Packard is in excellent original condition with original patina. In 1947 some repainting was done at "Stanley's" paint shop, Honolulu according to the bumper sticker. Some original service stickers are still to be seen on the door jams. The wonderful automobile is accompanied by documentation proving history and provenance. A new convertible top, still boxed also comes with the car as does a copy of the first printing of W.W Thayer's book, "Trade Wind Tales" published in 1944.

A 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible

Lot 9: A 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD80,000 - AUD110,000

Description: A 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible Chassis number V1NV02853C317 Engine number V2307627 It is said that Ned Nickles, GM designer started the Skylark project when he looked to customise his 1951 Roadmaster. Ivan Wiles, his boss, saw Nickles's sketches and had the vehicle built as a show car for the 1953 Motorama as part of General Motors' 50th anniversary celebrations in 1953. GM created three specialty convertibles; the other two were the Oldsmobile 98 Fiesta and the Cadillac Series 62Eldorado. All three were limited-production vehicles promoting General Motors' design leadership. Of the three, the Skylark had the most successful production run with just 1,690 units, all convertibles, manufactured. The Skylark had Buick's first V8 engine, the 322 cu in Fireball, and was very well equipped with twin turbine Dynaflow transmission, even for the hedonistic days of 1950s USA. Standard equipment included power brakes, power steering, power windows, power seats, power antenna, foot controlled Selectronic AM radio, power hood, Kelsey-Hayes chrome wire wheels with wide white-wall tyres, contrasting painted wheel wells, automatic foot starter, clock, automatic headlamp control. Originally intended to be built for just one year, it became one of the most stunning Harley Earl design exercises of all time. It is believed that less than 200 of these luxurious automobiles still survive, of which it is thought four are in Australia. It is a genuine collectors' motor car. This example of the 1953 Buick Skylark runs and drives beautifully. It was cosmetically restored prior to its importation to Australia from the USA, however a few aspects were not re-commissioned. The windows, seat and roof were hydraulically powered, but as the restorer "never intended to use the car in the rain", he did not rebuild the system. The current owner installed electric windows as a temporary measure, and has had the pump rebuilt and imported all of the rams (included in the sale). The windscreen wipers do not work. The restorer took other shortcuts - for example, rust points in the floor were patched, rather than replacing the floor-pan. The rarity of this vehicle suggests that a full restoration could well be warranted, something that the current owner does not have the skills to undertake Transfer of the Victorian registration plates "LARK 53" included in sale

A 1956 Porsche 356A/1600 Speedster

Lot 14: A 1956 Porsche 356A/1600 Speedster

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD250,000 - AUD275,000

Description: A 1956 Porsche 356A/1600 Speedster Chassis number 82507 Engine number 62567 The Porsche 356 is an enduring icon of flow-shell design, its flat, aerodynamic front hood brought about by the position of its engine in the rear. A two-seater sports car of extreme lightweight and simple lines first seen in 1949 it evolved continuously until 1965 when it morphed almost seamlessly into the legendary Porsche 911. The ultimate Porsche 356 model is without a doubt the 356 Speedster. The Speedster with open two-seater bodywork by Reutter of Stuttgart, was first introduced in 1954 at the suggestion of Max Hoffman, Porsche's man in New York. It was envisaged as a more economical and suitable car for racing, featuring bucket seats, an easily detachable windscreen and no fixed windows, but with full all-weather equipment. All but a very few Speedsters were delivered to the United States. This very fine example of the Porsche 356A Speedster is a US car which completed production on 8th June 1956 and was subsequently converted to right hand drive. It features the more powerful 1600cc Super engine along with a four-speed all synchromesh gearbox (transmission number 10424). Optional equipment fitted at the time included sealed beam headlights. It has undergone an absolutely superb restoration and presents beautifully in Aquamarine blue with tan interior and is accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD60,000 - AUD75,000

Description: A 1972 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible Chassis number DRH 13267 Engine number 13267 As befitting the purveyor of motor cars to the British Royal Family, even in the challenging decade of the 1970s, Rolls-Royce continued to introduce exciting new models. This included one of the most stylish of all Rolls-Royces, the elegant two-door coach-built Corniche. The Corniche was based on the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow but hand made by coach-builder Mulliner Park Ward. A total of just 1,306 Corniche coupés and convertibles were built. This beautiful 1972 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible was introduced to Australia in 1978. It comes with an impressive documented history from the Rolls-Royce Club and was restored in the late 1990s, including removal and repolishing of all woodwork. It maintains its original Porcelain White colour scheme with Dark Blue hood and Dark Blue leather upholstery and white-sided radial tyres as when first delivered to the island of Jersey and its first owner on the 3rd October 1972.

A 1929 Marmon Roosevelt Collapsible Coupe

Lot 11: A 1929 Marmon Roosevelt Collapsible Coupe

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD75,000 - AUD90,000

Description: A 1929 Marmon Roosevelt Collapsible Coupe Chassis number n/a Engine number T 21295788A Marmon is a rare American manufacturer and its automobiles were only produced between 1902 and 1933, its closure brought about by the economic strain of the Great Depression. Despite being little remembered and of limited production numbers the cars themselves were of considerable quality. In the gaunt 'Parker' novel, 'The Outfit' by Richard Stark (aka Donald E. Westlake) written in 1963, thirty years after the demise of the marque, the Marmon was already a rarity, "The car's hot in Florida, and the plates are hot in Alabama, but the plates are off a LaSalle, so you go nothing to worry about." "LaSalle? There's still some of them around?" "Give me three days around here, Parker, I'll find you a Marmon." Marmons were built in Indianapolis and in 1911 the Marmon Wasp driven by company engineer Ray Harroun won the inaugural Indy 500. It is thought that there are less than 600 Marmons in total worldwide. The 1929 Marmon Roosevelt collapsible coupé with rumble-seat is a very rare car and this example offered is believed to be one of just four worldwide still extant. After sitting in a shed in Bendigo, Victoria for 40 years this vehicle finally underwent an extensive 2 1/2 year restoration to body and Straight 8 engine in the late 1990s. since when it has been preserved in a 'carcoon' in as new condition.

A 1952 Ford Courier Sedan Delivery (Type 78A)

Lot 13: A 1952 Ford Courier Sedan Delivery (Type 78A)

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD65,000 - AUD75,000

Description: A 1952 Ford Courier Sedan Delivery (Type 78A) Chassis number B2LB114068 Engine number VN1838CAL The 1952 Ford Courier Sedan Delivery was as the name implies a delivery van based upon the Ford Station Wagon. It is a most unusual American vehicle because vans of this type were not commonly manufactured in the USA. Access to the load area is via a hinged side-door and engine options were either a 6-Cylinder or 3.9 litre (239 cu inch) side valve V8, optional automatic transmission and eleven inch front and rear drum brakes. In 1952 Ford produced just 6,250 units many of which were purchased by the US Postal Service utilising the 2,888 litre capacity space. The absolutely immaculate example offered here of the 1952 Ford Courier Sedan Delivery vehicle comes with its original docket confirming optional bench seat, two-speed automatic gearbox, V8 engine, Factory fitted heater and clock. It is thought that the vehicle was first used by a dry-cleaning company. In current ownership for the last 13 years, this Ford Courier which had lived in the Arizona desert for 14 years has undergone a complete, well researched and technically correct, in all facets, restoration to concours standard, and seamlessly converted from left to right hand drive. This incredible vehicle is finished in Ford Grecian Gold and Cream, with just an extra touch of metallic added to the original Ford Factory colour scheme. The whole vehicle has been painstakingly and authentically rebuilt, with original parts including all instruments and valve radio reconditioned or the use of new-old stock such as in the tan vinyl interior. This impressive van still runs its original side valve Stratostar V8 and its factory option dual exhaust. The total project was completed in 2007 since when this spectacular and rare vehicle has won a plethora of important awards and concours events, and only travelled 1,500 miles since.

A 1954 Bentley R-Type Continental

Lot 21: A 1954 Bentley R-Type Continental

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD1,000,000 - AUD1,200,000

Description: A 1954 Bentley R-Type Continental Chassis number BC30D Engine number BC D-29 The iconic aluminium bodied Bentley R-Type Continental launched in 1952 has streamlined 'fastback' coachwork by H.J.Mulliner. Its 4.9 litre engine was capable of achieving 100 mph in third gear and continuing on until reaching almost 120 mph, making it the fastest four-seater car of its day. Elegant and refined, the aristocratic design by John Blatchley is at the same time understated - the quintessence of high-speed luxury. Chssis BC30D was completed on the 9th August 1954, road tested on the 22nd October 1954 and then shipped from London to Melbourne via the S.S Australia Star on the 24th November of that year, to be sold by the agents Kellow Faulkner. This Bentley was featured as "the pride of the show" at the 1955 Melbourne Motor Show. It was purchased on the 1st June 1955 by Dorothea S.Lewis, second wife and widow of William Howard Horatio Lewis (1868 -1939) erstwhile racing cyclist, caretaker of the Warehouseman's Cricket Ground, and along with Harley Tarrant the first in Australia to manufacture a workable petrol driven car (1901 - 1906). Upon the death of Mrs Lewis the R-Type was purchased by Tom Barr-Smith on the 1st June 1970. Under the ownership of Barr-Smith, BC30D underwent a bare metal respray from its original colour, Shell Grey, to Olive Green with yellow coach lines, as it is still presented today. On the 4th February 1974 it was purchased by Mr Terry Reid, and then on the 8th September 1976 passing to Dr J.L.Townsend before coming into the current family ownership on the 9th May 1977. BC30D has been meticulously maintained and has also been a vehicle that has been used on a regular basis. Incredibly original and with beautiful patina, this is the only Bentley R-Type Continental ever delivered new to Australia. Features of this remarkable vehicle (Body number 5744) include automatic gearbox, light-weight seats still in their original read leather trim, Wilmont Breedon bumpers, Colonial front springs, HF horns and dual heaters. This Bentley R-Type Continental was first sold at the Royal Exhibition Buildings, Melbourne in 1955 for 8,900 pounds and is now available, with its original owners handbook, from the same location once again to what will be just its sixth owner, being offered for sale via auction for the the first time in 37 years.

A 1948 Alvis TA14 Drophead Coupé

Lot 26: A 1948 Alvis TA14 Drophead Coupé

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD30,000 - AUD35,000

Description: A 1948 Alvis TA14 Drophead Coupé Chassis number 22154 Engine number 22154 T.G.John began manufacturing Alvis cars in Coventry, England in 1919 with coachwork supplied by Cross & Ellis and Carbodies. In 1921 the first Alvis vehicle, a 10/30 won a gold medal in the London to Holyhead Trial. The 11/40 and 12/40 models were introduced in 1922, and the following year, the first 12/50 model won the 200 mile race at Brooklands at an average speed of 93.29 mph, taking 39 class records in one day at the famous race track. On November 14th 1940 the Alvis factory was badly damaged by the German Luftwaffe during the blitz on Coventry. Work carried on for the war effort testing Merlin engines for Spitfire fighter planes in one of their 21 shadow factories. In 1946 Alvis returned to the production of motor cars with Mulliners and Tickford producing coachwork designs for the TA14. The TB14, a sports version of the TA14 was launched in 1948. Alvis was a true automobile engineering company designing and engineering everything from concept to the finished rolling chassis. This was complemented by stylish and sophisticated bodywork from the leading coach builders of the time. Very reliable, with impressive performance as evidenced from success on the track, Alvis produced good looking, quality hand built cars with an enviable reputation until the last model produced in 1966, the TF21 Series IV, and production ceased in 1967 after the manufacture of almost 22,000 very special motor cars. This excellent example of a 1948 Alvis TA14 DHC with build date 11th June 1948 was delivered to Australia as a new car. Its first owner was Mrs Simpson of Burnside who purchased the car from the Alvis agent, Tony Ohlmer. Originally a grey-green colour with a pepper cloth hood, the standard front mounted horns were replaced by a pair of driving lights and the horns mounted on the firewall. These original changes have been maintained. Its second owner was Dudley Campbell- Smith of Stirling who named the car 'Elvira' after the grey-green clad ghost in the play 'Blithe Spirit' by Noel Coward, and by which the car is still known today. Due to faulty big end bearings Campbell-Smith took the car off the road in 1962. The car was eventually dismantled for a restoration by a family associate of Campbell-Smith and unfortunately some small parts were lost. It was in this state that the vehicle was acquired by John Murray at 'Scottsburn', Harrogate and where in 1972 the car was seen by John Caldicott who purchased it for his wife, Elizabeth. Restoration then took place with engine repairs carried out by Bob Reed of Kurralta Park: bore cylinders to suit new pistons; crankshaft, grind conrod journals, clean up main journals and refit main bearings; re-metal and machine conrods; clutch relined and serviced and carbon thrust replaced. The body was stripped to bare metal and repainted with a 1964 Rootes Group colour of acrylic Paisley Gold and new hood, lined with black vinyl fitted by Eames of Adelaide. The green leather upholstery is all original as are the side and door trims. The wood door trims were apparently chewed by Campbell-Smith's Basset Hound and therefore replaced. New mats and carpets. A modern (MGB) paper element air cleaner was fitted in the original intake 'silencer' unit. All other details remain as per original delivery except for one or two lost parts replaced with acquired Alvis parts. The car was rallied in the National Alvis Rally, Adelaide 1974, attended the National Alvis Rally, Sydney 1976 and various other sporting car club events through to 1985. In March of 1985 the car was sold to Peter and Anna Godfrey of Flagstaff Hill, Adelaide with a recorded mileage of 64,800. The car remained in the care of the Godfreys until March 2008 by when the car had travelled a total distance of 76,500 miles. No major work had been required in this time but an extensive list of work carried out over the 23 year period is available. Whilst not in use the car was always stored with the hood erected to avoid shrinkage and the car covered. The Alvis's next owner was Victor Elliott and the current owner (just the seventh) acquired the vehicle from him. It has now still only travelled 78,500 miles from new. The driver's seat has now had to be re-upholstered whilst the other seats have been re-coloured. New carpets have also been fitted. This remarkable vehicle comes with a complete set of manuals and related document

A 1966 Volvo 122S

Lot 3: A 1966 Volvo 122S

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD9,500 - AUD12,000

Description: A 1966 Volvo 122S Chassis number 201755 Engine number 02509 The Volvo 120 was launched in 1956 and established Volvo's long-lasting brand values (including early safety features such as door padding and standard seat-belt anchors). The 122S, developed from the earlier car, was part of the 120 series that ran until 1970 and featured 2-door coupé, 4-door saloon and estate variants. Its designer was Jans Wilsgaard who produced an attractive form that revolutionised Volvo style from the ugly-ducklings that had proceeded the car affectionately known to all as the 'Amazon'. This lovely example of a 1966 122S was originally the property of Harley Antill, the son of the Australian importer of Volvo cars and acclaimed rally driver, Peter Antill. It came into the possession of its second and current owner, renowned motoring journalist, Max Stahl, forty-seven years ago in September 1967! As one might expect it has been lovingly and well maintained to a high standard undergoing body repaint and restoration on no fewer than three occasions in 1975, 1985 and 2005. The original engine of 1,780 cc was rebuilt to two litres in 1990. Gearbox rebuilt in 2000, suspension in 2011. In 2013 the twin SU carburettors were rebuilt along with the fitment of new air filters, brake booster and other work. Sitting on impressive 14" x 5.5" wheels the car is accompanied by three of its original 4J x 15 steel wheels. This, now rare, and most interesting vehicle is available for purchase by a new owner for the first time in almost half a century, Max Stahl has been an active Australian motor sport celebrity since the 1960s, when he raced Australia's fastest 48-215 Holden, achieving a top speed of 123mph on Bathurst's Conrod Straight together with a Touring Car lap record at Queensland's Lakeside circuit.In rallying he navigated several leading drivers, including "Gelignite" Jack Murray, Bob Holden, Harry Firth and nine-times NSW Rally Champion, Barry Ferguson. In 1967 he navigated John Keran (Volvo 122S) to victory in the New Caledonian Safari to become the first Australian crew to win an International Rally. He co-drove a 280SE Mercedes in the first London-Sydney Marathon (1968) then reported on the 1977 Marathon for his regular network of Australian radio stations. He was also Editor of Australia's leading motor sport magazine, "Racing Car News", a position he held from 1964 to 1987. In 1985 he took part in the charity fund-raising "Bourke to Brketown Bash", which led to his co-founding and organising the "Great Endeavour", the "Kidney Kaper", then in 1992 the "Camp Quality Caper", which raised over $3-million in its 11 year life.1992 also saw the start of his major creation, "Targa Tasmania", which attracts hundreds of classic cars and their owners from all over Australia each year. During all this time he continued to drive his well maintained 122S in Historic Club tours and events and shows.The well-known Volvo was the subject of a story written by his journalist son, Michael, in "Wheels" magazine, which attracted Australia-wide interest.

A 1914 Victor Motorcycle and sidecar

Lot 7: A 1914 Victor Motorcycle and sidecar

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD40,000 - AUD50,000

Description: A 1914 Victor Motorcycle and sidecar Build number 5 Engine number 40147 This is the only remaining example of 'The Victor' motorcycle. 'The Victor' motorcycle was made by Mr Edward Victor Bowen. He assembled a total of five motorcycles in the shed at the rear of his bicycle shop, which was located in Windsor Crescent, Surrey Hills, Victoria. Each motorcycle was made for Mr Bowen's own use. And each was sold when the next one was completed. The first one was built in 1908. This motorcycle was thought to be a '1912' model (refer 'A-Z of Australian-made Motorcycles: 1893-1942', by Robert Saward). However, it was most probably made in 1914, but not earlier than 1913, by its engine number. The engine was made in Tottenham, London, by J A Prestwich Industries ('JAP"), and bears engine number 40147, which appears to place it's manufacture at around early 1913 at the earliest. It is a 1,000 cc V-twin configuration, with Bosch magneto. The carburettor is by The Aston Motor Accessories Co. Ltd., ("A.M.A.C."). The gears are 3-speed rear hub gears branded "Tourist Trophy Three Speed Armstrong Patented, '2470', Mark VII, for 8 H.P. Motors". The seat is by "Lycett's, Western Works Birmingham, No: 4", 'La Grande' model. The steering head is by Chater Lea. The bike sports a side car called 'The "Rock" Side Car', which was made by Underwood Bros. & Co., of 244 Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn, Melbourne at the time the bike was made. The manufacturer's plate on the sidecar gives us this information, as well as the matching coachwork of the bike and sidecar. Everything on the bike and sidecar is preserved in perfect 'as used' working order both inside and out (except for the Miller & Co Ltd/Acme acetylene lighting system which has been cleaned, preserved and otherwise left as found in the interests of originality). Every endeavour has been made to ensure that the bike is also completely original throughout, and preserved to museum standards. 'The Victor' is in absolutely original preserved condition. It is in perfect running order as it was on its day of retirement in the early 1900s, except for the drive belt to the rear wheel, which is the original one and is now too aged to be usable. The canvas tonneau for the sidecar passenger, which clips to the sidecar and fastens around the passenger's neck, is the original. Winner overall of the Preservation Class at Motorclassica in 2011. The Department of the Environment has advised that this lot may require a license to be exported from Australia due to its cultural significance.

A c.1989 Lancia Delta Integrale HF

Lot 34: A c.1989 Lancia Delta Integrale HF

by Theodore Bruce

October 25, 2014, 7:00 PM AEST

Melbourne, Australia

Estimated Price: AUD25,000 - AUD30,000

Description: A c.1989 Lancia Delta Integrale HF Chassis number LA831AB000428739 Engine number 831C5000/0428766 The Delta represents a turning point in the history of Lancia. It was produced from 1979 onwards and was awarded the title "Car of the Year" by an international jury of specialist motoring journalists. In keeping with established Lancia tradition, the Delta had front wheel drive and a transverse engine. The suspension was independent on all four wheels. Designed by Giugiaro, the overall architecture was a of a simple and linear geometry based upon rationalist principles, with volumes created by flat panels that met in distinct angles giving the corners an important function with signs of strength, robustness and safety. The Delta was immediately welcomed by the press and the public who saw in it, with its characteristic grille, the basis of a real Lancia - understated elegance combined with an outstanding level of performance. Its refined interior and ease of handling and driving represented the best of Lancia traditions. The Delta went on to play an important in international racing competition. In 1985 the Lancia Delta S4 won the RAC Rally and in 1986 the Montecarlo Rally and Rally of Sweden. 1988 was the year that Lancia became manufacturer world champion and was the year of the launch of the Delta Integrale. In 1989 the Delta Integrale, as in the previous year swept all before it, and so it continued with Lancia winning all the major rallies world wide. In order to meet competition requirements the Delta Integrale needed to be homologated - road cars had to be produced to make the rally car eligible. Hence was born the road going version of the Lancia Delta Integrale HF - high fidelity - faithful to the real thing! This stunning example of a road going Lancia Delta Integrale HF is in wonderful competition and is presented in the legendary Martini racing colours as be-sported by the Monteccarlo/Safari/Acropolis/etc rally winning Lancia team cars of the day. It is possibly the coolest looking car of its time and this superb road car with Cibie spotlights really evokes not only the look but also the feel and driving experience of the real thing. Prepared by Road and Track Dyno in South Australia this is as close as you can get. A wonderful homage to the ten years of collaboration with Martini and five consecutive Delta World Rally Championships. No other car manufacturer has ever collected so many victories in rallying nor has one car maintained primacy for such an extended period of time. A legendary car - ready for Lancia's 100th anniversary in 2015.
