Gooding & Co is auctioning 36 extremely diverse classics online in the “Scottsdale Edition” in January 2021 | Double-declutching

A year ago, Gooding in Scottsdale offered 138 automobiles over two days. They were mainly sold to local bidders who were waiting impatiently for a real hammer to fall. In 2021 everything will be different, the pandemic will require adjustments. Gooding uses the already well-established “Geared Online” approach and offers significantly fewer classics, namely 36, online over a period of five days. Anyone who thinks that the cars would also be cheaper is mistaken, because the average value of USD 362,000 is practically the same as a year ago when the calculation was USD 360,000. The cars are even a bit older, i.e. 52 instead of 48 years.

Despite the reduced scope, the range is broad and includes various vehicles that are certainly interesting.

The most expensive?

Lot 38 is a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB with a long nose for USD 2 to 2.4 million.

However, it is not the most expensive car, because the almost new Koenigsegg Regera from 2020 is valued higher at USD 2.75 to 3.5 million. Will the neoclassic beat the superclassic on the bids too?

The coolest?

For buggy fans it shouldn’t be a question, for others you can at least leave the question mark. But the Meyers Manx from 1968 is certainly an interesting example. The plastic body is a very early buggy, a so-called “pre-tag” model. Since the title is for the year 1959, it can be assumed that the shortened chassis comes from that year. In addition to extensive documentation, the color “32S Dark Green” and the interior also seem to be largely original.

You will rarely find a more authentic buggy, at least if you can believe Gooding’s description. The USD 40,000 to 60,000 look in any case self-confident, even if “no reserve” is written next to it, which also applies to other offers.

The Meyers Manx still has to fight in the “Cool” hit parade with an Austin Mini Moke from 1966, which should certainly receive a lot of bonus points.

The most elegant?

Certainly one of the most beautiful cars is the Aston Martin DB2 / 4 as a Bertone convertible from 1954, which was estimated at USD 1 to 1.4 million. It is one of only two such special bodies. Chassis LML / 506 is left-hand drive and certainly a welcome participant in beauty competitions.

Of course, it is not without competition at the Gooding auction, such as a Jaguar XK120 from 1950 or the Ferrari 330 GTC from 1967.

And the Packard 452D Five-Passenger Convertible Coupe from 1935 also has elegant lines.

The sportiest?

It is probably not the fastest, but the Bugatti Type 37 from 1926 with chassis number 37227 is certainly one of the cars from the Gooding selection that feel the sportiest when driving. After all, you practically sit “outside” and do so in the same posture as Grand Prix drivers once had. The Type 37 once belonged to Count Stanislaw Czaykowski and was used in many races during that period.

Nevertheless, significant parts of the car are said to have been preserved in their original form, and the car is certainly not lacking in patina. However, USD 650,000 to 850,000 are also almost type 35 price levels and there would still be four more cylinders.

Porsche 356 A Speedster (1957) – offered as lot 029 at the Gooding & Co “Geared Online Scottsdale Edition” auction from January 18-22, 2021

Of course, a Porsche 356 A Speedster from 1957 is also sporty, and it should cost less than half the Bugatti (USD 275,000 to 350,000) and significantly less than the original Speedster was paid for just a few years ago.

The fastest?

A Citroën SM specially prepared for records achieved over 200 MPH, or more precisely 206.446 miles per hour, in 1985. That is over 330 km / h after all. It shouldn’t hold a candle to the already mentioned Koenigsegg, but in terms of style, especially together with the matching towing vehicle and trailer, the Citroën is certainly superior to the Swede. And the three vehicles (2 x SM and trailer) with USD 100,000 to 200,000 (no reserve price) are significantly cheaper.
