1967 Lamborghini 400GT

The Lamborghini 400GT was essentially a derivation of the first Lamborghini road car, the 350GT. This example for sale in New York was itself a derivative of the 400GT, in that it is the 2+2 version with extended sheetmetal and a back seat. The V12 engine was enlarged to 4.0 liters in this car, capable of 320 horsepower. A total of 247 of these 400GT 2+2 models were made before the Islero replaced it in 1968.

1967 Lamborghini 400GT

A beautiful and matching numbers 400GT 2+2. It has just had a $50,000+ Gary Bobileff motor rebuild and service. It is a true 2 owner car and was with the same California owner for the last 41 years! Offered in a beautiful metallic green with tan interior the car is ready to drive and enjoy. It comes with the original Belgium license plate, Brochure from the factory and extensive service records. Early V12 Lamborghini’s are become hard to come by. This car will make a great addition to any collection. For only $285,000.

In this shade of green over tan leather, this Lamborghini has an aura completely different from the flamboyant supercars the manufacturer currently sells. A similar 400GT sold at RM Auctions in 2011 for $341,000, which was the highest number one of these cars has brought. Hagerty is pegging a value for a perfect example at just over $200,000. Realistically, in this market, this is about a $250,000 car, which is not far off from that other Italian great, the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Decisions, decisions...

1989 Maserati 430

Looking like a sharp edged BMW E30 sedan, few people in the market for a compact executive saloon noticed the Maserati 430 when it was new. It could have been the much higher price tag as compared to its German rivals. Either that, or they had nightmares from previous mechanical experiences with the related Maserati Biturbo. This was unfortunate, as the extra doors, newly added limited slip differential, revised suspension and more linear turbos attached to the 2.8 liter V6 made it a more pleasant driver. If you can find a good 430 today, it makes for an interesting modern classic and one that grabs the attention of the more astute passers by. This 430 for sale in Philadelphia has a low 26,000 miles on the clock and looks well kept.

1989 Maserati 430

1989 Maserati 430, 4 door, 5 speed. Rare Italian sports sedan. Under 26,000 original miles. Two owner car. Garage kept, well maintained and pampered. Excellent condition. All service up to date. Ice cold air conditioning. Power windows, power locks. Less than 1,000 miles on four new Dunlop tires. Must see in person to appreciate the value. Certain trades will be considered. Serious inquirers only. Barrett Jackson Quality. A true time capsule.

At under $15,000, most people would think this is a lot of Maserati for the money, but realistically, the best examples of the 430 may fetch between $10,000 to $12,000 at most. The 430 suffers from less mechanical gremlins than the earlier Biturbo, but you still would be wise to make friends with your local specialist in town, as these are not the easiest cars to go about repairing. The blue interior may be a bit too blue for some, but personally, I find it quite attractive. I have a feeling this car may sit around at close to $15,000 for a while. If the seller knocks a few grand off the price, it may be a worthwhile purchase, as this looks to be one of the betters 430s out there for sale.

1987 Ferrari 328GTS

About a decade after the 308 debuted, Ferrari tried their hand at updating the mid-engine V8 formula and introduced the 328GTB and GTS. The revised model featured a 3.2 liter V8 that allowed mechanics to perform most of the maintenance without having to remove the engine, greatly reducing hourly labor costs. Thankfully most of the wedge shape survived, which was complemented by better integrated bumpers and the interior was upgraded with more modern switchgear. This 328GTS for sale in Southern California was taken in trade on a new 911 and strikes a unique pose in Oro Chiaro (Light Gold).

1987 Ferrari 328GTS

1987 Ferrari 328 GTS

- Oro Chiaro Metallic (Light Gold)
- Beige Leather Interior
- 52,108 miles

We just took in a really clean, very well maintained 1987 Ferrari 328 GTS in on trade on a new 991 Porsche Carrera and are thrilled to now offer this car for sale globally here on eBay. This 52,000 mile 328 is a true classic and comes in an incredibly rare Oro Chiaro Metallic paint with Beige and Brown interior. This Ferrari shows incredibly well and it’s a real treat to drive. It’s classic Ferrari at new Toyota pricing, what more could you ask for. If you want to make a move on this car, don’t wait for the auction to end, just call me and I will do everything I can to make this deal happen. Forget that the auction is even taking place, don’t worry about what the reserve is, if this is the car you’re looking for, you owe it to yourself to give me a call and I’ll do everything I can to see that a reasonable offer buys this time capsule of a car.

Gold certainly isn’t a color you see on a 308 or 328 every day. I’m not the biggest fan of this hue, but it is interesting, being outside of the Ferrari norm. Good examples of 328s these days can range from $35,000 into the low $40,000 range. The best examples can bring upwards of $50,000. With this kind of mileage, a service history would be a must. I would hope, given that a Porsche dealer is offering this car, they at least got some information from the prior owner on what has been done. The condition of this 328 looks pretty good and if the maintenance checks out, the asking price of $35,000 is about spot on.

1963 Maserati Sebring

The 1960s were a time of transformation for Maserati. Not only did this decade bring a transfer of ownership from the Orsi family to Citroën, but the company shifted its focus from competition to road cars. The Maserati 3500GTSi, better known as the Sebring, employed much of the mechanicals of the 3500GT wrapped in seductive bodywork by Carrozzeria Vignale. With a 3.5 liter inline six and mechanical fuel injection, the Sebring could reach just shy of 140 miles per hour and scoot to 60 mph in 8.5 seconds. This Sebring is for sale in Washington state and is in need of some minor fixes and TLC to bring it back to its former glory.

1963 Maserati Sebring

1963 Maserati Sebring (3500GTIS) Rare car, 1 of 350 series 1 models produced. Car is numbers matching originally purchased in Switzerland. It is in good driver condition to be used as is or to take it to the next level with a full restoration without the search for any new parts. Motor starts right up and runs strong. Starting to get a little timing chain noise so it will have to be tightened up and looked at some point in the future (put Maserati Sebring 1 in you tube search) Car has only been driven about 300 miles since this video was taken 3 years ago. Odometer was working up until recently but around 93,00Km it started jumping in random increments of 1000Km or more so something is stuck in the odometer. Currently it shows 11088Km. Converted to 3 dual sidedraft Webers. Still have the lucas fuel injection parts which will be included but would have to be rebuilt.

Interior is in great shape with the exception of the leather in the rear window which has shrunk and will need to be reconditioned or replace. Passenger side electric window works sporatically. Body has paint bubbles in the rocker arms and some rust and there is a crack in the front hood area which is not that uncommon for a 50 year old hand built body. Car has been repainted to the current color from what I understand in the late 70's, the original factor color was to of been silver. Was featured in viale Ciro Menotti issue 89, Car Toys 2006 calandar, winner of Sports Car Magazine Spirit of Motoring Award (best driver) Italian Concourse d'Elegance 2005, 2nd in class Italian Concourse d'elegance 2007.

This is a great looking grand touring machine that was ahead of its time in performance. It cuts a bit more of an athletic pose than the related 3500GT and many of the styling cues were carried on to subsequent Maserati models. While this example is sporting Weber carbs, at least it has the original parts for the fuel injection. High values for Sebrings can hover in the $75,000 to $95,000 range. If this car could be had for under $60,000, it would be good buy and give the new owner some breathing room to carry out the fixes this car needs and deserves.

1985 Lamborghini Countach 5000S

The Lamborghini Countach is a supercar icon. It stood the automotive world on its ear with it's styling when it was introduced in the early 1970s. It led a long life, carrying Lamborghini through to the 1990s when the Diablo was unveiled. This 5000S is a rare piece in that it is a fuel injected model, one of the few produced before the QV version, or Quattrovalvole, appeared on the scene. In sublime Merlot Red sans spoilers, this Countach has a sense of purity about it, even if the angular styling is rather dramatic.

1985 Lamborghini Countach 5000S

VIN# ZA9C00500FLA12766. Who is Jasjit Rarewala? A man that was determined to make it happen. Once in a lifetime chance to own this extremely rare "Factory" Fuel injected "One Owner" Countach. Just over 37 produced/imported with the factory injection system (extremely rare) that was refined by Jasjit Rarewala of Lamborghini North America (Lamborghini logo in air plenum). Jasjit's project was started to help convince the DOT and the EPA that the Countach was wholesome enough for U.S. consumption. Just over 3 dozen cars were build for import before the factor completed its successor the "5000QV."

Fitted with very rare factory polished wheels and finished in a beautiful Merlot rosso over duel blk/red interior with just 36,954 one owner kilometers(22,962miles). Round body car, clean lines & no rear spoiler. Clean Carfax, never in an accident or damaged. Always garaged & serviced with a full documented history of the service throughout its lifetime. Every car I sell has a Clean Carfax and a Perfect Autocheck.

Exterior: Beautiful finish with a deep reflection in a one of a kind stunning color Merlot Rosso. Very few paint flaws in this fine example.

Interior: A dual tone black & red leather interior with red carpet. It is in great shape with light scuffs in the leather and the dashboard should be redone cause the leather had stretched. Overall a really nice interior.

Glass: Some scratches in side roll down section, front windshield is fine.

Tires: Replaced in the front but still has the P zeros in the rear, plenty of rubber on front and back tires.

Wheels: Great shape with light curb marks, easy fix.

Drivetrain: No leaks from engine or trans and no smoke when running. Clutch has been replaced and is fine, no problems shifting.

Almost $140,000 is serious money for a 1985 Countach; the seller seems rather certain that the rare fuel injection option should command such a premium. Typical values for a Countach of this era can range from around $75,000 to $115,000. While a rarity such as this car certainly should command a bit more than your typical Countach, a $25,000 to $30,000 premium at the least might be a bit of a stretch.

1999 Ferrari F550 Maranello

We've featured a number of Ferrari F550 Maranellos here at CICFS, and quite frankly, they never fall out of favor with me. The classic styling, V12 power and raw emotion of these cars has been discussed at length. This F550 for sale in California is aptly finished in the unique shade of California Azzurro.

1999 Ferrari F550 Maranello

1999 Ferrari F550 Maranello. Beautiful, excellent inside and out. This beautiful Ferrari F550 has been expertly maintained, is visually stunning and is a dream to drive. The California Azzurro Blue exterior is complemented by luxurious luggage, full leather package including the coveted quilted rear shelf and leather headliner. This California car has power seats, Ferrari Scuderia shields, stereo with 6CD changer and silver calipers. This car also has had regular scheduled services and oure price of $79k includes a fresh major service. Car has books, tools and keys.

About $79,000 is near average of what F550s are going for these days. Given this car has had a fresh service sweetens the deal even more. For those considering an F550, now isn't a bad time to pull the trigger, as collectors will no doubt be seeking the allure of a classic front-engined V12 Ferrari in the future, as they have in the past.

1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona

The Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona is one of the all time greats from Maranello, as evidenced by the reverence paid to it by collectors. The 365 GTB/4 Daytona we featured at the beginning of the month was a solid driver and this example for sale in California is a bit of a step above that car, albeit a restored example wearing a different hue than what it emerged with from the factory.

1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona

1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 “Daytona" s/n 14155. Black with Red Leather Interior

As the last of the classic front-engined V12 flagship Ferraris, the 365GTB/4 needs little introduction. Mechanically sophisticated with its 4.4 litre quad cam V12, rear mounted 5-speed transaxle, and fully independent suspension the cars are aggressive and beautiful. Quite simply, the Daytona is one of the most evocative and collectible Ferraris ever produced, one that captures the essence of the classic Ferrari experience. This particular US-market car is in excellent condition, having been recently treated to a beautiful restoration. It is fitted with much desirable equipment, including nine-inch rear wheels, P6 cams, high compression pistons, velocity stacks, and shorter competition ratio differential (3.90:1 instead of 3.30:1). Thus, this Daytona has the fastest setup for American road use, and provides extremely quick acceleration. Originally built in February of 1971, this car was supplied to Chinetti Motors finished in red with a black interior. The car`s first owner had the car painted black in 1975, and kept the car for about ten years total, after which he traded it to Amerispec for a new Boxer. The car then passed on to another owner for a short while, before being sold on to a fellow who owned it from 1982 to 2002.

After being sold on to its fourth owner in 2002, the car was comprehensively restored at great expense, about $350,000 according to the owner`s calculations. Much of the work was done by Motion Products, and was thus completed to the highest standards. This includes the complete bare metal repaint and body repairs, suspension setup, transmission and differential restorations, and a great deal of other work. The hollow frame members were filled with a hydrophobic closed cell expanding foam to increase rigidity and prevent moisture. As to be expected of a shop of this caliber, the correct finishes were applied throughout and the car is absolutely beautiful. The engine was done by Bill Badurski employing 10.25:1 JE pistons (the standard compression ratio is 8.8:1 and competition cars were 9.3:1), and has been dynoed at 395hp at 7000rpm (the maximum speed at which the engine was run) and 341 ft-lbs of torque 5200rpm. The peak power is estimated to be over 410hp at the 8200rpm redline. A reduction gear starter, modern alternator, and crank fire ignition system were also fitted. The interior was completely and correctly done in red using Re-Originals supplied parts and materials, including their correct mouse hair dash material supplied by the original Italian manufacturer. The restoration also included the renewal of the chrome, and the replacement of all the rubber seals using the correct materials. There is a thick file of meticulously kept records outlining all of the money spent and research done on the car, which was obviously a labor of love.

As a result of the restoration, the car is cosmetically and mechanically outstanding. The repaint is a spectacular job and difficult to fault. The quality is exemplary with few surface flaws or imperfections, a particularly difficult feat given the black color. The panel gaps and fit are excellent, and the body is extremely straight. The chrome was redone as well, and is excellent. The correct side mirror is fitted and is in very good condition, and the remaining chrome is even nicer, having just been refinished. The wheels have been restored and the glass is excellent, save for some very light road rash on the windscreen. The headlights are new Cibié items.

The interior is equally beautiful, particularly because of its stunning color combination. The center console, door panels, and seats were all reupholstered in high quality leather and the carpets were renewed as well. The dashboard and headliner were both redone in the correct materials and a lovely Becker Europa radio is also fitted. The car is fitted with air conditioning, which blows, but not cold. The gauges have been restored (including the chrome trim rings) and the wing windows have been modified so that the latches will not fall off, a common Daytona idiosyncrasy. The trunk and engine compartment have also been restored and are excellent. The trunk carpeting has been renewed and the correct spare tire is present. The engine bay has been extremely well-detailed, and is both dry and clean. The original Dinoplex ignition boxes, correct look battery, and miscellaneous decals and plaques are all present and in excellent restored condition.

The underside is in beautiful restored and detailed condition. It is very dry, and also reveals that the car has had the center mufflers eliminated, a fact that is confirmed upon starting the car up. The car is loud and powerful, providing a great deal of power, especially in the upper rev range. The performance is remarkable, and the ride a bit on the harsh side, something that would probably improve with some attention to the shocks. The oil pressure is excellent and all synchromeshes are great, including the second gear synchro when cold. The brakes are effective and confidence inspiring. This is an opportunity to acquire a stunning example of this important car. Thanks to its sparkling restoration and host of desirable and difficult-to-find equipment, this car is a rare find, even among these already rare cars. It also has known ownership history from new, including the original selling dealer, and comes with the difficult to replace air filter housing, tool roll with tools, original books, and extensive service records back to the early 80’s. $435,000

The black over red combination of this Daytona is certainly attractive, but it's not the car's original color. That, along with an AC unit that seems like it could use a recharge don't suggest that this is a Daytona that could bring top dollar. It isn't a Spider or the rare alloy bodied variant, just another restored example. In this market, over $400,000 for a Daytona should bring along some interesting history with it, at the very least. Otherwise, we're looking at around a $350,000 car.

1984 Lamborghini Jalpa 3.5

Similar to the Espada, the Lamborghini Jalpa is one of the least expensive ways into owning a car with a the Raging Bull on the hood. A derivation of the earlier Urraco, the Jalpa had a production run for eight years with 410 cars produced. Equipped with a 3.5 liter V8 with 255 horsepower, the Jalpa was good for a 0-60 run in about 6 seconds. Nothing spectacular by today's standards, but then, most cars couldn't match the symphony which emerges from the exhaust pipes. This Jalpa for sale in California has but 22,000 miles on the clock and is being offered due to a move on the seller's part.

1984 Lamborghini Jalpa

1984 Lamborghini Jalpa with only 36,780 Kilometers = 22,854 miles. Complete service has been done (documents on hand) $15,000 spent. 5-speed manual transmission with Targa top, interior and exterior in great condition. AM/FM original Blaupunkt Radio. This car is extremely rare. Always garaged. Moving out of the area and need to sell. I am the second owner.

Depending on how recently the service was completed, that will of course affect value. The asking price of $48,000 is rather high, as most good examples will reach into the high $30,000 range and possibly break $40,000. This car, looking cosmetically sound with two owners and relatively low mileage would realistically be worth somewhere between $35,000 and $42,000.

1972 Ferrari 312PB

We don’t feature many race cars here on CICFS, but this Ferrari 312PB is interesting in that it is not an original, but a tribute car built by one of the mechanics to serve on the NART racing team. The 312PB competed in the Group 6 Prototype Sports Car class in 1971 and Group 5 Sports Car class in 1972 and 1973. The 312PB was very successful in competition and won the World Sportscar Constructors’ Championship in 1972. Powering the car was a 3.0 liter flat 12 cylinder engine with four valves per cylinder. This car is for sale in Ohio and wears the name of famed racing driver Brian Redmond.

1972 Ferrari 312PB

Built 20 Years Ago by one of the original NART mechanics John Hajduk. Very correct copy. Built with Formula 1 Spec 312 Engine and Transmission. All correct Ferrari Uprights, Wheels, Gauges, etc. Every rivet and weld is correct. Car has just enough of the proper patina to pass the acid test at any Ferrari event. Own the only one on the planet for a tenth of the cost. Ready to vintage race or enjoy at any Ferrari event. Has to bee seen to appreciate. Interesting trades considered.

This very car was offered at auction in Amelia Island back in 2004 and sold for $1.6 million. Almost a decade on and one economic crisis later, the car is being offered for under $800,000. For the well-heeled this may seem a bargain and would make for a fantastic piece at vintage racing events around the globe.

1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV

The Alfa 2000 GTV (GT Veloce) was the successor to the 1750.  With subtle styling changes, the 2000 GTV is still unmistakably from the house of Bertone. The 2000 GTV featured a 1.9L DOHC engine with mechanical fuel injection that produced 150 hp. Popular in racing circles, these cars continued Alfas racing heritage through the 70’s.

This well-kept example for sale in Scottsdale, AZ is a shining example of why the '70s alfas are so iconic. The red over black interior is pure italian sports car.

1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV on ebay.com

 

Here is a gorgeous 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000 that looks absolutely gorgeous and runs beautifully!!! This Alfa is finished in a beautiful Red over a black interior, sitting on a great looking set of factory wheels. This great piece of Italian motoring history has been owned and driven its entire life in California!!! The car runs great and the classic 2000cc twin cam four cylinder has been lovingly looked after and comes with TONS of receipts and maintenance records. This car has been the subject of an on going restoration since 2004 and has been driven sparingly since. The car runs fantastic and has that great classic Italian car sound. The cars exterior looks excellent with a beautiful paint job and very nice chrome. The black interior is in excellent condition and the seats are quite comfortable. The car is in excellent shape inside and out. Best of all this is a documented California Car with a RUST FREE undercarriage. These Alfas are great modes of transportation and were ahead of their time when new, from the twin cam 4 cylinder engine to the 5 speed gear box. These cars were fantastic on the track and are still dominant in vintage racing today. This Alfa Romeo is a great collector's item, that is surely to appreciate in value over the years. This car is a great driving car and is lots of fun to drive on a nice spring day.

 

Admittedly, I'm not an Italian car guy, sure I pine over Ferraris, Lambos, and a Lancia here and there,but have nevre really followed the other Italian Marques. Since fellow contributor Paul has been posting here, I've been introduced to a wider array of these cars, and have grown to appreciate them, and this beautiful 2000 GTV is no exception.

Average retail on the 1974 2000 GTV is just north of $28,000, and considering the range of vehicles out there this example is well above average. This car is a great example of a solid driver condition car, and at a Buy it Now prive of $24,750, this would make a great addition to any collection.
