Webb's Automobile auction
is on again next month and (somewhat predictably) the highlight for me is the Ferrari 300 GTC which is unusual as I am not a big Ferrari fan. This 1968 Ferrari 330 GTC has been immaculately restored with no expense spared, it features a 4-litre V12 and a Pininfarina body. The example was originally sold in 1968 by Ferrari of Virginia, USA, to a New Yorker who owned it for four years. It's been around the world now with its third owner who has owned the vehicle for 18 years. The estimate is currently seeing this between $750,000 - $850,000.
Another favourite is the 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL W113. The launch of the W113 SL models were originally revealed at the 1963 Geneva Motor Show, with production lasting until 1971. In total nearly 50,000 SL's were built and the vehicle has earned its nickname 'Pagoda', inspired by the cars patented hard-top. This example looks excellent in its forest green.
The live auction will be held on Sunday 27 November, 2pm at the Due Drop Centre,
Manukau. For the full catalogue of vehicles and auction details visit webbs.co.nz
