Blenheim, Ontario – A 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Alloy Berlinetta and a 1958 Tojerio Jaguar Sports racing car, one of only four built, will be presented by RM Auctions at its annual Automobiles of Amelia Island event in Florida in March.
In total, some 100 vehicles are expected to be offered at the March 13 auction, RM’s twelfth annual event at Amelia Island, which will be held prior to the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance show.
“Over the past eleven years, RM has established a proven track record of strong performance at Amelia Island, selling over 25 million-dollar-plus vehicles as well as setting numerous new records,” said Ian Kelleher, RM president and COO. “A popular and established event on our annual calendar, we look forward to returning to Amelia Island’s prestigious Ritz-Carlton Hotel in March to build on our past results and celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.”
Featuring coachwork by Scaglietti, the rare Ferrari was displayed at the 1967 New York Auto Show before being sold. It has recently been restored by its current, long-term owner, and is optioned with such items as air conditioning, power windows and Borrani wire wheels.
Other early Ferrari consignments include a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Berlinetta and a low-mileage 1971 Ferrari 365 GTS/4 Daytona Spider once owned by Edsel Ford II.
The 1958 Jaguar was the third of four examples designed by engineer and racing car designer John Tojerio. It was raced for several years at Ecosse, and is offered for sale for the first time in 17 years.
Other early entries include a 1964 Pontiac Banshee coupe, one of only two drivable prototypes, and a correctly-restored 1963 Watson-Offy “Leader Card 500” Indy Roadster, driven during the 1963-1966 USAC seasons.
