Plus – Porsche 906, ex-Stewart Lola, shortnose D-type and Cobra

Bonhams’ had a record sale at their Goodwood Festival of Speed auction on June 22. A 1932 Alfa Romeo 8C-2300 Spider fetched £1.4 million, while Sir Henry Segrave’s personal photography and film collection achieved £41,000. The National Motor Museum Trust, Beaulieu, secured the family collection where it will join Sir Henry’s Land Speed Record cars, the 1,000hp Sunbeam and ‘Golden Arrow’.

For its Goodwood Revival sale on Friday August 31, Bonhams has the ex-Paddy Hopkirk 1966 Austin Mini Cooper S, GRX 5D. This ‘came fourth’ on the controversial 1966 Monte Carlo Rally – the works cars finished first, second and fourth but were disqualified, along with Roger Clark’s Cortina, for a headlight infringement that allowed Pauli Toivonen’s Citroën DS21 to claim first place. Timo Mäkinen then drove GRX 5D on the 1966 Tulip Rally. The following year, modified by the works to Mk 2 specification, the car won the Circuit of Ireland rally with Hopkirk at the wheel again. It is expected to fetch £70,000-£80,000.

Also included is Lord March’s 1960 Lola-Climax Mk1 sports racer, estimated from £90,000-£100,000, and a 1929 Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A Sport Landaulette by Castagna, estimated at £200,000-£250,000.

RM’s Monterey sports and classic car auction on August 17 and 18 features a 1966 Shelby 427 Cobra (estimated at £355,000-£405,000) with a 485bhp, 427 cu in overhead valve V8 engine with four-speed manual transmission. Chassis number CSX 3181 was invoiced to Shelby American on 11/18/1965 and shipped to Los Angeles. Work Order No 18088; “Build 427 Street Cobra” was opened 1/12/1966 and closed on 3/4/1966.

At Bonhams & Butterfields’ Quail Lodge sale in California on August 18 a 1971 Can-Am  Lola-Chevrolet T260 is a star lot. This car, originally run by US Lola importer Carl Haas’s team, was built for Jackie Stewart to contest the 1971 Can-Am series. The Scot put the T260 on pole in its first race, at Mosport Park, and went on to win at Ste Jovite, set fastest lap at Atlanta, took another pole position at Watkins Glen, won again at Mid-Ohio and came second at Edmonton and Laguna Seca, but he was beaten into third place in the championship standings by McLaren’s Peter Revson and Denny Hulme. It is estimated at £115,000-£135,000.

Also at Quail Lodge is the 1956 ‘Shortnose’ Jaguar D-type, chassis number XKD553. This gently patinated, tastefully restored Jaguar was based on the original works cars that were only narrowly beaten into second place at Le Mans in 1954 by the V12 Ferraris. An Ecurie Ecosse ‘Shortnose’ won at Le Mans in 1956, with works ‘Longnose’ developments triumphing in 1955 and 1957. The D-type’s success led to the production of a number of ‘Shortnose’ D-types for ‘approved’ customers, of which XKD553 is one. It is estimated at £875,000-£1,100,000.

The Coys auction during the Oldtimer Grand Prix on August 11 at the Nürburgring includes a 1966 Lola T70 MkII Spyder, which is estimated to fetch £200,000-£250,000. It is one of 35 T70 MkII Spyders produced and has a 5.7-litre Chevrolet V8 engine and Hewland LG600 transaxle, and comes ready to race with a comprehensive spares package, FIA papers and FSA Technical Passport.

Coys also has a 1966 Porsche 906, estimated at £370,000-£405,000. Chassis number 906-111 made its debut in the 1966 Targa Florio then went on to win its class at Le Mans. The next year it won the European Hillclimb Championship.
