The Ford Starliner Was Built for 1 Year Only

The Ford Starliner Was Built for 1 Year Only This rare fastback variant of the Ford Galaxie was only produced between 1960 and 1961. Ford’s Galaxie of the 1950s and 1960s was a classic full-size American car which encompassed the ethos of bigger being better. The Galaxie came in a multiple of variants with a wide range of engines on offer, but one of the rarest variants of this model was the 1 year only Starliner. This fully restored example for sale with Lost and Found Classic Car Co is something of a rarity today. Presented as the top-flight Galaxie variant in 1960, the Starliner was a real flagship model with its own unique styling.

What is it that captivates about derelict classic cars? Is it the thrill of bringing back a rusty hunk of metal from the very edge of the scrap yard, costs be damned? If that's the core of the public fascination with so-called barn finds, this 1961 Maserati 5000 GT may be the perfect such project car.

Today, it's rare for a wealthy customer to not only have a hand in developing custom bodywork for a contemporary supercar, but also to help develop a whole new model altogether. But that's exactly what happened in mid-20th-century Italy with the Maserati 5000 GT.  At the time, the Shah of Iran, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, was what most of us aspire to be—a died-in-the-wool car enthusiast with virtually unlimited spending power. When he approached Maserati about building a car for the street that used the 5.0-liter V-8 engine from one of the brand's 450S race cars, Maserati was only too happy to comply.

Maserati's chief engineer at the time, Giulio Alfieri (for whom the Maserati Alfieri was named), began with a Maserati 3500 GT coupe chassis and reinforced it to be able to handle the significant increase in horsepower that it would be asked to endure. The 3500 GT normally came with a 3.5-liter straight-six engine making either 217 or 232 horsepower depending on specification, but the 5000 GT's V-8 would produce 325 horses in early spec. By November 1959, the resulting car debuted at the Turin auto show, and buoyed by the response, Maserati decided to do a small production run for its wealthiest clientele at some $17,000 each—double the price of the 3500 GT and the equivalent of $150,000 today. At the end of production in 1965, 34 5000 GTs had been built in total and owners included American race-car builder and racer Briggs Cunningham along with Fiat boss Gianni Agnelli.

Set Of Rare 1971 Challengers Up For Grabs

Set Of Rare 1971 Challengers Up For Grabs Now’s your chance to own one (or both!) of these iconic muscle cars! In 1971, Dodge was sitting amongst the kings of the muscle car movement, but production for this year was low, and the Challenger line was trimmed down considerably. If you wanted to buy a 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T in modern times, you’d be hard pressed to find examples like the two currently for sale through Volo Auto Museum. While not being sold as a pair, you could definitely have a sweet Mopar muscle collection if you bought them together, or either individually.

Extremely rare for the time is the Lucas indirect fuel injection system; Maserati was an early-adopter of these . With so few cars on the road 45-plus-years later, and so few examples of this engine in circulation to begin with, we wonder Regardless of the price, this is an interesting piece of history.

The car that RM Sotheby's is auctioning in Monterey is the 18th 5000 GT, and was finished in July 1961. By now the V-8's output was up to 340 horsepower courtesy of fuel injection and a very small displacement increase (still 5.0 liters when rounded), while disc brakes were fitted at all four corners. Ordered new by Ferdinando Innocenti, the wealthy founder of Lambretta scooters in Italy, this car remains the only 5000 GT to have been bodied by Ghia. Alas, by the 1970s and after spending time with various Italian owners, the 5000 GT ended up in Saudi Arabia where it was left in outdoors and gradually decayed. When its most recent owner passed, his heirs brought the car inside to save it from degrading further, and just in time: It had already been marked as abandoned by Saudi authorities (that's the spray paint on the passenger door) and would soon have been scrapped.

According to RM Sotheby's, the 5000 GT has some remaining sections of its original silver paint, as it originally came from Maserati, along with its unused spare tire and original pencil drawings by Ghia craftsmen on the inside of the driver's door. With just over 15,000 kilometers (9,300 miles) on the odometer, it's fair to say this once exotic Maserati has spent far more time sitting than being driven. As evidenced by the photos, it's also fair to say the car will need a lot of everything from mechanical work to structural repair to cosmetic surgery, but when it's finished the owner will no doubt be receiving invites to many of the world's most prestigious concours events. Of course, the total outlay will likely double the pre-sale estimate of $500,000 to $700,000 by the time this Maserati sees the road again. With a possible restored value in excess of $1 million based on previous 5000 GT sales, the new owner just might come out ahead depending on how well the car is bought.

Prototype Toyota 2000GT Headlines Classic Car Auction In Tokyo.
If you've ever wanted to see what the classic car scene looks like in Japan, check out this weekend's BH Auction in Tokyo. As cool as it is to daydream about buying rare cars at domestic auctions, sometimes it's more exciting to see what types of automotive forbidden fruit are being auctioned off in other countries. Take this weekend's BH Auction in Tokyo, example. While this is a small auction – just 22 lots – what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with some ultra-rare vehicles. Each vehicle holds its own significance, but the 1969 Toyota 2000GT "MF12L" is probably the most exciting car at the auction.
