GT - The World's Best GT Cars by Sam DawsonWe’re very pleased to announce that Sam Dawson is joining up with ClassicCarHunter.com.

Sam has a weakness for cars and manufacturers with ‘personality’ and as such is drawn towards flaky, unreliable yet charismatic machines built by companies which change their ownership more often than their model lineup. As a result, he has a particular passion for the likes of Lotus and Alfa Romeo.

Sam’s book is available from Veloce Publishing.

Silver rocket: 1958 MGA ’55 Le Mans replica

The year 1955 was one of the deadliest in motorsport history. In France, at the 24 heures Le Mans race, 92 got killed and 140 injured when Pierre Levegh crashed his silver Mercedes SLR and pieces of this car got projected onto the crowds. (some highlights of the race here). But it was also the year when MG brought a prototype of their new MGA to France to show off their new car.

Lightweight: 1964 Chevrolet Corvette “Sting Ray”

In our opinion, this is the more European looking version of the famous Chevy Corvette. That’s why we quite like it and why it drew our attention skimming through the ebay advertisements. That and the price. Because it seems like a bit of a bargain to be had for someone …

Rare: 1985 Porsche 911 Gemballa (959 look)

Update 3/3:  The Porsche didn’t meet reserve at EUR27050. 

From 26/2:

The Porsche 911 has been around for a long time. It is without doubt one of the most iconic sports cars ever. It has developed quite a bit over the years since its inception in the 1960s. In the 1980s that development culminated (for a while) in the Porsche 959. One of the fastest and most exclusive Porsches ever made.

Great looks: 1976 MGB GT Sebring replica

Update 3/3:  This fabulous MGB didn’t meet reserve at GBP4950 and has been relisted. Links updated.

From 24/2: 

Here it is. The perfect base for an engine swap. And what a bargain that would be if the price is right for the car of course. The MGB GT is a not too contrary-looking car, but we all know they were a bit underpowered. The owner has created the perfect Sebring replica, but has “only” fitted a reconditioned, what we suspect pretty standard, 1800 pushrod engine in the car. Fitting a Rover V8 instead shouldn’t mean compromising on reliability …

Cool cat: 1964 Jaguar Mk II 3.8 racer

Update 25/2:   This Jag sold for GBP15000.

From 20/2:

We like the colour orange on older cars. It gives older cars a more modern look without being too contemporary, if you know what we mean. Maybe not … well anyway … This Jaguar race car looks absolutely stunning in orange. It has been completely rebuilt and is even road legal.

Rare Beemer: 1965 BMW 3200CS V8 by Bertone

Update 26/2:  The Beemer didn’t meet its reserve at GBP8850 and has now been relisted. Links have been updated.

From 19/2: 

For sale in Manchester in the UK is this lovely and pretty rare BMW 3200CS Coupe, designed by Bertone. This car was produced in between the legendary Type 503/507 and the 1960s 2800CS series. It was fitted with a V8 engine and capable of 125mph. Around 600 of these cars were produced.  It was based on the Type 503 chassis and is a very thin B-pillar, 2+2 coupe with an aluminium bonnet and bootlid.

Needs completing: 1962 Maserati 3500 GTi

Update 19/2:  The auction was ended early with a Buy-It-Now of EUR39800. No surprise there really …

From 17/2:

Older sports tourers are seriously cool in our opinion, and especially these older Maserati GTs. This particular one for sale on ebay Germany needs completion and is unfortunately missing a few bits and pieces. It is a Maserati 3500 GTi (2a serie), an aluminium-bodied, fuel-injected 2+2 coupe designed by Carrozzeria Touring. About 500 were made.
