I have been collecting classic cars, bikes, and vintage boats for a long time. The time has come to downsize and sell some things as I'm out of storage space.

Here are a few that I would consider selling (in no particular order):

1934 Rolls Royce Phantom II Limousine De Ville with coachwork by Gurney Nutting - beautiful older restoration done to AACA and CCCA standards. This car has documented celebrity and Royal (Ducal) history. A very impressive classic. $135k (partial trades considered)(Note: The castle shown in the picture is Drumlanrig Castle in Scotland, owned by the Duke of Buccleuch & Queensbury. The Duke owned my car for a dozen years and it was used in a Royal wedding at Westminster Abbey when his daughter was married to another Duke). I have a vintage British Pathe film clearly showing the bride and her father exiting this car with the King and Queen and Royal family standing nearby to greet them as they entered the Abbey)

1956 Nash Rambler Custom sedan. This is a wonderful cruiser, in rare colors (yellow and black two-tone with apple green interior). I was told that the mileage was very low when I bought it, but there was no documentation. Straight 6 with automatic, wide whites. $13,500

1960 Mercedes Benz 190b Kombi by Korrosserie Binz. Mercedes didn't build their own wagons in those days, so they were special ordered through an outside coachbuilder, and available in various configurations (ambulance, hearse, kombi). This one is a kombi with a tailgate/lift gate rear door. It has the folding rear bench and reclining front bench. This was a California car that was purchased on the European Delivery program. Unfortunately, it was poorly stored for years outside in LA, and now needs a complete restoration. Only 349 built, so it is rare enough to make the time and cost to restore worthwhile. $8k obo

1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale - an original black plate California car that has been off the road, and parked in a dry garage since 1972. Odometer shows 35k miles. Complete and matching numbers. Unrestored condition. A genuinely great car - this is the one you want to keep, restore, and never let go of! $90k

1964 Fiat 600 period '70's race car. This is a barn find that was last road registered in Iowa circa 1978. It features many Abarth pieces including front radiator, 4 wheel disc brakes, Cromadora alloy wheels (with petrified Pirelli CORSA tires still mounted), radiused front wheel openings like the Abarth 1000TCR's had, 3 gauge cluster with Jaegers, deck lid props, Raydyot mirror, etc. Engine is out and apart. Body has a couple of issues, but is mostly very good. No known history. $10k obo

Aristocraft Torpedo 14' mahogany barrelback dual cowl runabout. This is probably one of the most beautiful small boat designs ever created. It is really extraordinary and very sexy! Great condition overall (collector owned for years). These are currently being built and sold for $15k with no motor or trailer. This one has an Evinrude and galvanized trailer for only $8k

Vincent engined tube frame drag racer. This was a fire-breathing and exotic machine back in the late'60's. This had a Vincent rapide V - Twin stretched from 1000cc all the way up to 1600cc! it was able to exceed 150 mph in the 1/4 mile, Eventually the bike was retired and the engine sold off. I have the rolling chassis in great shape, and a mountain of history (photos, magazine articles, receipts, handwritten letters, trophies, , and even the original BUCO worn on the strip. this is an extreme piece of motorcycling history. Would look great in a collection, or mounted on a wall in your man cave- $ (DEPOSIT)

1958 Velocette Venom Clubman. Iconic 500cc thumper with all the cafe racer equipment: clip-ons, dual gauges, rear sets, fishtail exhaust, etc. $12,500

1962 Laverda 200 twin by Gemini. A very rare variant of the Laverda line rebadged by Gemini for the US market. Original unrestored condition including paint. Starts easily and runs /shifts well. 4 stroke twin built for comfort, but would be a fun Giro mount! $3500 (SOLD)

Please do not flag me - this is a genuine ad. I own all these privately and am not brokering them or listing them for a dealer. If you would like to make an offer or get more details and photos, I am happy to help. I am possibly open to trades, but am really trying to get my storage issues under control.

Note: The last photo shows a portion of my collection, and was posted to illustrate my storage issue. Most of these are keepers-

Thanks for looking, Mark
