Pebble Beach week is coming up, and RM Sotheby's will once again host an auction there. It will run from August 18 to August 20. Ahead of the auction, RM Sotheby's brought some of the cars from a Detroit-area collection that will be offered for the press to check out. They included a 1927 Miller race car, a 1929 Auburn 8-90 Speedster, 1956 Porsche 356 A, 1964 Porsche 356 C and a 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Expected sale prices for these vehicles range between $90,000 at the low end for the 1956 Porsche, to as high as $850,000 for the Miller race car.
- This is a 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4, commonly known as the Daytona. It's one of Ferrari's great front-engine, rear-drive GT cars. It's got a V12 under the hood. And, of course, it's got the classic gated manual transmission.
This car was not originally burgundy. It was a different color and was repainted sometime in the, they believe in the '70s and '80s. But it's still a beautiful car. Should be a great driver. And it's expected to go for between $500,000 and $600,000.
