Classic 1971 Ferrari Dino 246 GT

 

The Ferrari Dino 246 GT was a rolling homage to Enzo Ferrari’s son, Alfredo “Dino” Ferrari, as it offered a uniquely exhilarating mid-engined driving experience that was wrapped up in one of Pininfarina’s most balanced designs. Dino Ferrari, a trained engineer, had proposed a downsized engine range in the 1950s, but his untimely passing in 1956 meant that he never got to see his dream come to fruition. Eventually, his father Enzo approved the Dino sub-brand to serve as a gateway brand and to square off against cars like the Porsche 911. With its mid-mounted V-6 allowing for ideal weight distribution and a more streamlined nose, the Dino was a true sports car that was genuinely worthy of the Ferrari name.

To top it all off, its aggressive, Modena-bred exhaust note gave most owners, and the contemporary press, little to complain about. For 1969, the Dino’s 2.0-litre engine was enlarged to 2,418 cubic centimeters, giving the 206 its new 246 nomenclature. The Fiat-built, 65-degree powerplant featured an iron block with alloy heads and was enough to catapult the Leonardo Fioravanti-designed 246 GT into great sales success. Their responsive handling and free-revving engines characterized Ferrari well into the 1990s, giving the Dino a long-lasting appeal.

Daniel Schmitt and Co. Classic Car Gallery St. Louis is pleased to offer you this beautifully restored 1971 Ferrari Dino 246 GT, which is among one of the finest examples we have seen in many years! It is finished in gorgeous Nuovo Giallo Fly Yellow, with two-tone black and tan Daytona leather seats.

Daniel Schmitt & Co. presents 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL

Daniel Schmitt & Co. presents 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL – Coming up for public sale for the first time in over a decade, is the chance to own one of “The King’s” personal automobiles that spent time parked in front of Graceland (as seen in the image above). This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL was purchased new in 1970 in Memphis, Tennessee by Elvis Presley. The “King” of Rock’n’Roll was no stranger to high-end cars; he owned numerous Cadillacs, BMWs, Rolls-Royces, Lincolns, Ferraris, and a few Mercedes.

The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL for sale here is a top-of-the-line Sedan, which Elvis also purchased from Robertson’s Mercedes-Benz and signed for on December 21, 1970. The car left the factory with code 542 (Dark Red) paint, but that color wasn’t up to the “King’s” standards. He soon had it repainted in Alpha Crystal Blue Metallic, a color suspiciously similar to that of his Powder Blue 1970 Mercedes-Benz 600 Limo. This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL is one of very few cars that Elvis was seen in on a regular basis driving around Memphis.

After Elvis’ death in 1977, his 280SEL was put on display at a prominent museum where it remained until earlier this year. The vehicle is still equipped with its factory options including air conditioning, power windows, power steering, power brakes, and a Becker Europa radio that is still in working condition. This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL is well documented and comes with copies of the title registration, the original title (both of which bear Elvis’ signature), a copy of the original Bill of Sale, as well as a photo of the vehicle parked in front of Graceland.

Featured on eBay Motors Blog and UK’s Express, Elvis Presely’s Mercedes-Benz 280SEL is enjoying its own share of popularity –

“Elvis had a penchant for cars, and while it would be a stretch to call him a driving enthusiast, he definitely collected luxury models like most other people would stack up snow globes or Franklin Mint die-casts. This 1971 280SEL was purchased by Elvis at the tail end of 1970, a period which coincided with the six-cylinder version of the car starting to phase out of Mercedes-Benz dealerships in favor of the upcoming W116 redesign. The 280SEL joined Presley’s fleet of Cadillacs, Ferraris, and Rolls-Royces, but perhaps most importantly for Elvis fanatics, it was a car that The King was often seen driving around himself, rather than being chauffeured in.” Read the whole article here.

 

“Car fanatics and music fans are expected to battle it out to get their hands on Elvis Presley’s old Mercedes after it was put up for sale on eBay. […] The King of Rock and Roll bought the Mercedes 280 SEL saloon new in 1970 in Memphis, Tennessee. It was originally dark red but Elvis wasn’t happy with the colour and had it repainted Alpha Crystal Blue Metallic, a similar colour to his cherished Mercedes 600 Limo.He would regularly drive the saloon around Memphis and kept it until when it was put on Museum display.” Read the full article here.

To better understand this great American Classic, we look to the author of A Survey of The Classic Marques, R. Nichols. He states “The definition of a sports car is never easy. There are few cars which all observers would agree fit the bill, and in general tend to be of European, if not Italian, extraction. The list of American-built sports cars that fit into this sort of category is perhaps the shortest of all, with only two names that are guaranteed instant worldwide recognition. One is Shelby, of course, but it is Corvette that springs to mind first. Launched as a low-price competitor to the European imports in 1953, Corvette’s status and legend have grown over the past 30 years. Today it’s no longer the USA’s only volume-built sports car (although it was the first), but instead is America’s first – and only – supercar.”

By 1960, the Corvette had become a full circle sports car, having graduated from its six-cylinder, GT roots when it was launched in 1953. The 283 cubic inch V8 was available with a dual quad carburetor set up that increased horsepower output to 270. Independent front suspension kept handling in check and allowed the Corvette to run in circles with some of the finest marques from Europe on both the road and track. Styling was pure American, with loads of chrome and classic roadster lines, keeping with the Corvette’s sporting appearance.

The beautiful 1960 Chevrolet Corvette 283/270 Convertible offered by Daniel Schmitt & Co. boasts the coveted 270-brake horsepower V8 with the desired 4-speed manual transmission. Additionally, it is equipped with the factory removable hardtop, Wonderbar radio and accessory heater, allowing this Corvette to be enjoyed in all seasons. Unlike many Corvettes of this era, which were finished in jazzy colors, this car is presented in simple and elegant Tuxedo Black with silver coves and a black interior. This exact combination of color and the optional 270 hp 283 V8 engine would only have been produced on a handful of cars built in 1960.

Accompanying this Corvette are several awards from the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS), including a national Top Flight Award. The NCRS is regarded as the final word in Corvette authenticity, with judging standards that are designed to feature extreme attention to detail. NCRS awards are only given to those cars that meet the high standards of judging, performance and operation, meaning this exemplary Corvette is the one to buy. We are proud to offer this incredible Corvette to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who only wants the best.

Mercedes-Benz’s elegant Paul Bracq-designed W111 made its debut in 1959 and was produced, in its many variations, through 1971. Among the most desirable variations were the two-door models—the 280 SE Cabriolet and Coupe—which were expensive, virtually hand-built automobiles in the great tradition of German craftsmanship. The acres of wood trim throughout the interior were all genuine solid hardwood, accented by the gentle use of brightwork; the leather upholstery was thick and comfortable; and both the ride quality and handling were (and continue to be) superb. Perhaps unsurprisingly, these cars rapidly became favorites of international socialites and celebrities, and they were frequently seen cruising in all of the world’s most posh destinations.

The 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Convertible for sale at Daniel Schmitt & Co. is finished in stunning Light Ivory with a gorgeous Cognac Tan leather interior and brown convertible top. A concourse level restoration was recently completed and this Mercedes is now ready to be driven or shown.

We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the very finest 280SEs that can be found on the market today.

Over time, experience and a worldwide market dictated many changes in the sublimely beautiful Jaguar E-Type. During the first seven years of the E-Type’s life, the changes were evolutionary, culminating in the 1968 release of the E-Type Series II, a substantial redesign that also foreshadowed many of the attributes of the Series III V12 models that entered production in 1971.

Federal regulations in the United States, Jaguar’s most important market, drove some of the Series II’s changes, including revised lighting and the shift to a pair of Stromberg carburetors in place of the three SU units seen primarily on earlier E-Types. Externally, the radiator air intake increased substantially in size, a change masked by larger, full-width bumpers that were matched at the rear to meet U.S. low speed impact requirements. The well-proven 4.2-liter E-Type six-cylinder engine was little changed although a twenty-five percent higher capacity water pump was fitted to take advantage of the larger radiator air intake, better adapting the E-Type to hotter climates. The chassis got bigger Girling brakes with three-piston calipers at the front and two-piston calipers at the rear. Inside, reclining seats were now standard.

The evolution of the E-Type meant buyers of the Series II got a much better, more adaptable, comfortable and reliable Jaguar, attributes that complemented its already well-established reputation for superior performance, handling, ride and appearance.

The 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II 2+2 Coupe featured here is finished in stunning Signal Red with a beautiful new black leather interior. It was recently restored and had a complete engine rebuild performed by a marquee specialist. Accompanying this 2+2 Coupe is its Jaguar Heritage Certificate, owner’s manual, tools and more.
