Auctions America’s Santa Monica sale brings classics to California

Auctions America is returning to Southern Californian this June, for its fourth annual Santa Monica sale.
The event is set to attract thousands of collectors and enthusiasts to the historic Barker Hangar, with an eclectic docket spanning pre-war classics to modern-day supercars from both sides of the Atlantic.

Amongst the early highlights from the auction are a trio of prancing horses – a 1996 Ferrari F50, a 1970 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona ‘Euro’ and a 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS. 

The F50 is one of just 55 examples built for the U.S market, finished in the iconic Rosso Corsa over a two-tone black and red interior, and having recently received Ferrari Classiche certification the car is now up for grabs with an estimate of $1.8-$2.1 million.

The Daytona ‘Euro’, valued at $750,000-$850,000, comes fresh to the U.S. market from Japan, and the low-mileage Dino presented in striking yellow comes with an estimate of $325,000-$375,000.

Leading the line-up of American-built machines is a fully-restored 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429, described as "the ultimate pony car" and valued at $250,000-$275,000.

Additional U.S highlights will include a 1958 Chevrolet Impala Fuel-Injected Convertible estimated at $120,000-$150,000 and a restored 1958 Buick Limited Convertible with all the trimmings, valued at $140,000-$160,000, both offered as part of the renowned Midwest Duffy Grove Collection.

"This year’s Santa Monica auction will once again highlight both blue-chip collector cars as well as many emerging classics typified by the vibrant local enthusiast community," says Matt Malamut, Car Specialist at Auctions America.

"Our team at Auctions America has again put together an impressive group of motor cars for this year’s sale, highlighted by late-model sports cars which, as a genre, continue to attract new, younger collectors to the hobby."

The sale takes place on June 25-26.
