Here’s a preview of what will be on offer at the 2021 Gooding & Company Pebble Beach Auction:
1958 Ferrari 250 GT Series I Cabriolet
The 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Series I Cabriolet, chassis 1075 GT, is one of the most exclusive and expensive 250 GT models of its time. It is the 34th of only 40 Series I Cabriolets constructed and features custom coachwork by Pinin Farina.
The example made its debut at the renowned Earls Court Motor Show in London, England. It was sold new to a client in France and made its way to the US to a prominent family in the Bay Area in the 1960s. The example has been in the care of renowned collectors including Said Marouf and automotive designer Dick Teague.
Chassis 1075 GT is finished in its original Andalusia Gold matched with brown leather. One of the leading Ferrari restorers in the world, Wayne Obry’s Motion Products Inc., was tasked with the restoration of the example and when completed, it received a perfect 100-point score and Best in Class at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2008.
It has also been awarded the Ferrari National Meet Best in Show, Cavallino’s Best 12-Cylinder, and Villa d’Este’s Best in Class. The example is Ferrari Classiche Certified, and it has kept its original chassis, body, gearbox, engine, and differential.
1956 Maserati A6G/54 Coupe
This 1956 Maserati A6G/54 Coupe with chassis 2140 is one of only four examples constructed by Carrozzeria Frua. Having a very limited run of only 60 chassis produced, it is one of the most exclusive coachbuilt Maseratis of the 1950s.
Chassis 2410 made its debut on the Maserati stand at the 1956 Paris Motor Show. It was then delivered new to Jacques Fildier, a prominent French architect. In 1959, it became part of the Roger Baillon collection, and in 2015, it was rediscovered in an unrestored, barn-find condition.
The fourth and current owner, since acquiring the example, has driven it on the California Mille and displayed the vehicle at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este and Hampton Court. At Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, it was awarded in the Preservation class.
The example is finished in black, has a light blue roof, and possesses its original beige leather upholstery. Chassis 2140 proudly carries its beautiful patina and is one of the last of the A6 Maseratis in outstanding unrestored conditions.
