Unrestored and Geared Online

Gooding & Company’s transition to online sales has brought some great cars to market throughout 2020 and into 2021 — and the next Geared Online event, taking place in early May, will focus in on the unrestored sports car collector via three time-capsule lots.

Headlining this collection is a 1955 Ferrari 250 Europa GT, 0413 GT, which was thought to have been delivered new to Dr. Enrico Wax, the Italian distributor for Johnnie Walker whisky and Moët & Chandon champagne. 

By the 1960s, the car came to the U.S., and it’s been in a private collection ever since — making it a great candidate for preservation-class showings. It has just 33,671 kilometers on the clock and retains its California black plates and original Pirelli hoses. Gooding & Co estimates the car at $2.2m to $2.6m.

Joining the Ferrari is a 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 coupe fresh from its second owner. This car is also in original condition, showing 27,000 miles. It has its original matching-numbers engine and factory Dunlop spare tire, as well as its original black paint and red interior. Gooding’s estimate on the car is $140k to $180k.

Also available is a 1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider, also in original condition and offered from the garage of its one and only owner from new. The car has spent its life in the San Francisco bay area and comes with its original California black plates. Gooding estimates this car at $70k to $90k, and it’s offered without reserve.

The Geared Online sale will present these cars and more at Gooding’s Southern California facility for viewing prior to the auction — which gives bidders the chance to see them in person before deciding to bid. For unrestored lots, that’s important, and Gooding is unique in the market for presenting this hybrid opportunity of distanced bidding as well as on-site inspection for all of its lots.

The sale runs from May 3 to 7. Learn more and see all the lots here.
