1935 Austin 7 Special

Owned by: Mark Sange

Bolinas, Ca

Class Race Cars Pre-War

This was built from a damaged Austin van, all the way back in 1935. This Special was then originally built in 1937.

The car is beautifully constructed. In particular, the front suspension is very cleverly fabricated. The car possesses huge drum brakes, reminiscent of a GP car of its era.

The car was raced in Britain in 193839 and at the outbreak of hostilities, the owner entered the RAF and was killed in the war.

In 1991 the car was found in a barn and then restored. In 1995 it began racing first on the east coast and then out west, where is was accepted five times for the Monterey races.

The current owner has owned the car since2008 and has raced it five times.

Car: 1964 Triumph Spitfire4

Owner: Barry Connally

Location: Oceanside, CA

Proposed Class(es): Sports & GT Cars (1960-1969), At the Beach, Cars of Main Street

Details: Designed by Giovanni Michelotti and largely based on the Triumph Herald, the Spitfire was manufactured at Canley, Coventry. It was the first British Sports Car of its class to feature roll up windows, front disc brakes, and rack and pinion steering. This Spitfire has been in the family since it was bought new in January 1964. It was raced extensively by the current owner’s father, winning the Texas Regional Special Class A SCCA Championship in 1964 and 1965, and placing 1st Overall in Carroll Shelby's 1967 Terlingua Time Trials. After obtaining the car in 2005, the current owner spent the next seven years personally performing a complete frame off, nut and bolt restoration in tribute to his father. Having recently completed a second frame off restoration, the current owner maintains the family racing tradition by placing 1st Overall in the Spitfire Autocross Class at two recent National Triumphests.

Car: 1950 XK-120 OTS

Owner: Rusty Hansgen

Location: Woodway, TX

Proposed Class(es): Jaguar, Sports & GT Cars (1946-1959)

Details:  The original owner special ordered this right hand drive XK-120 OTS Jaguar from a New Jersey dealership.  When his family was expanding, he traded the car in for a Mk VII Jaguar at our New Jersey dealership, Walt Hansgen Jaguar Cars in 1960.  My father, Walt Hansgen, replaced the disc wheels with a set of Borrani wire wheels, installed a dual exhaust system, repainted the car in light blue silver metallic lacquer and made it his personal car.  I inherited the car in 1966.  Due to low oil pressure (later found to have a cracked crank), the car was stored for 30 years.  In 2007 I completed a two year ground up restoration to the current condition.  The car is a frequent driver.

1964 Opel Kadett Sports Coupe

Joe DeBattista

South San Francisco, CA 

Considered for: Oddballs and Oddities or Micro Cars

https://youtu.be/iaGXpayguNg

Details: My 1964 Opel Kadett is one of just five known to exist in the US. It was found in rough condition in Bakersfield, CA, and came to me via trade for a 1990 Volkswagen Cabriolet. My father and I restored it together, doing all aspects of the restoration ourselves (paint included) with the exception of the upholstery. Parts sourcing is near impossible as many parts are bespoke to not only the early Kadett A, but the Coupe is far different from the Sedan. With a 54 HP 1.0L S  ("Super Compression") engine and 4 speed floor shifted manual transmission the car is no sports car. It's primary design was to challenge the VW Type 1, however it did not sell well in the United States through Buick dealers. In fact this particular car required 1964 Buick Upholstery (done by Turner Buick, Hayward, CA) to move the car off the lot. I spoke to the original owner prior to his passing (his business card was still in the glove box). The car has been presented at Greystone Mansion, Coyote Creek, Alameda, and Hillsbourough (in fact this car is used on the Classic Motorsports Website displaying Hillsborough's Participation in this event). I hope to attend more events once the Concours are allowed to continue. Thank you for your consideration.

1993 Mustang SVT Cobra

Wayne R. Linn

Pennsville, NJ

Cars of the 80s and 90s

Tasked with developing a limited production high performance car for the final year of the Fox body platform, Ford's newly formed Special Vehicle Team introduced the 1993 SVT Mustang Cobra. Modifications in collaboration with Roush Engineering to the venerable 5.0 V8 included free breathing GT40 heads, a revamped cam shaft, a larger induction system, along with other inhancements to increase horsepower and torque. Larger tires mounted on unique 17 inch turbine aluminum wheels along with a more compliant suspension sytem with development input from Jackie Stewart and Bob Bondurant improved both ride and handling capabilities.Drivetrain strengthening, free flow mufflers, and four wheel disc brakes were also added. Subtle exterior body features and a unique rear spoiler added to cleaner appearance over the GT model.

This unrestored example is chassis number 1568 of a build of 4993 Cobras and is one of 191, as equipped, finished in Vibrant Red.

1957 Porsche 356A GT/GT Carrera Speedster

Jerry Charlup, Stamford CT

Porsche Class

Acquired in 1983, its missing original 4-cam motor was found in 2003. The Porsche Museum Book “Carrera: History of the 4-cam Motor” lists this Speedster as a steel bodied GT with a GT 4-cam motor, one of only 165 356/356A Carrera Speedsters ever built. 87 had GT motors and only 31 of these were steel bodied making this car very rare.

Originally delivered in 1957 to California racer Jimmy Moore, a Hollywood Film Editor, his successful racing, during 1957 to 1959, of this Speedster is fully documented.

This is a "double barn find" given finding the original 4-cam motor and later the racing history. This Speedster story was written up in Excellence in June 2014.

The Speedster has won many prestigious awards including the Barry Rilliet Laguna Seca Award in the Carmel by the Sea Concours on Ocean Avenue in 2015 and was displayed at the 2018 Porsche Rennsport Reunion VI in the 70th Anniversary Chopard Heritage Display. It has been invited to many Concours including Amelia Island (Twice), Greenwich and Pinehurst.

This Speedster is regularly driven to many events.

This Speedster was invited to the 2020 Audrain Concours d'Elegance which of course was cancelled.

1964 Austin Cooper S

Andrew & Janelle Krueger

Summerfield, NC

Micro cars

This 1964 Austin Cooper S is the last 1071cc engine Cooper S built. There were 2,135 Austins manufactured. By 1980 this car was featured in Autoweek Magazine as the cover story comparing the Cooper S to the latest hatchback, the VW Rabbit. We found this car languishing in a garage in NC and fully restored it to its original production specification, look, and feel (see Heritage certificate in photos). NOS parts were used when available and all proper weld points recreated in the exact position for any body repair. Correct and refurbished OEM hardware was retained including correct cylinder head bolt head markings. In addition, proper stenciling was used to create factory markings on the areas such as the fan belt, heater, oil cooler, sub-frames, and suspension parts (see pictures).

This is the only Austin Cooper S accepted into the Quail Lodge Car Show (2016), was First in Class at Hilton Head Concours in 2017 and First in Class in Carmel By the Sea in 2018. Go to these You Tube sites for more sights and sounds of the Austin Cooper S!

1954 Jaguar XK120 OTS roadster

Chassis #674443

Preservation Class

 

 

When Bernard Yurt returned home from the Korean War, he decided that what he needed was a sports car. Within months of being honorably discharged as a staff sergeant after his tour of duty in the U.S. Air Force, he purchased a shiny new 1954 Jaguar XK120 from Foreign Motors in Boston for $3,395.

 

Mr. Yurt took fastidious care of his XK120, driving it on special occasions and displaying it at regional car shows. Over his nearly 60 years of ownership Bernie preserved his XK120 in original condition and proudly used its originality as reference for other XK120 owners in Jaguar forums.

 

A devoted Jaguar enthusiast, Mr. Yurt founded the New England XK Association (N.E.X.K.A.) in 1968, later renamed the Jaguar Association of New England (J.A.N.E). The club still thrives today. (note the original N.E.X.K.A. badge on the front of the car)

 

We are only the second owners of this wonderful 1954 Jaguar XK120. It retains its original tan interior including the carpet, Dove Grey exterior paint, 3.4-liter engine, radiator, Moss gearbox and chassis. With just 56,000 original miles on the odometer, it has never been restored, damaged, modified or painted.

To support its originality we have the original bill of sale and the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate issued in Bernard’s name. This XK120 is also featured throughout the book, “Original Jaguar XK, the restorer’s guide” by Philip Porter.
