Alfa Romeo 1750 GT 1968

Alfa Romeo 1750 GT Veloce 1968

Exterior: Nice red paint, very good rubber around windows etc. No corrosion, no bubbles, no signs of filler. Good panel fit and also good chrome. Rolling on new 15” GTA wheels.

Interior: Original with the Zagato Seats in black vinyl. Original headliner, dashboard etc, all in very good condition.

Engine: Starts easily, good oil pressure, very good sound. Very nice and clean engine bay. New stainless exhaust including headers. Weber carburettors (original intake pipe with the car). No leaks of any fluids from the car.

History: This car started its life in Finland back in 1968. In Finland, this car had what they call "museum status". This means it has to meet certain criteria of quality and has to be original with known history. The car came to Sweden in 2018 and was registered here on 24th of August. It looks like the km reading of 96,000km is correct. I am driving the car almost every day and it works perfectly.

Maserati 3500 GT

Maserati 3500 GT 1961 for sale 

Exterior: There are a few small places where the paint is lifting a little bit, but in overall the car looks good from the outside. The chrome and rubber parts are also in fair condition. There are some deviations from original as you can see inn the pictures. But only a model expert would notice this.

Interior: The leather has an amazing patina in this car! And in the photos from the inside you can see a little of the blue factory colour it was in many years ago.

Engine: The car starts up easily and can be driven on the road. It was not driven much over the last 20 years or so. Before any longer trips, it should be serviced and checked properly.

History: This Maserati was registered in Sweden the first time in July 1977 and has been with the same owner since 1990. If you are interested in buying this car, please send me an e-mail and I can send you more and bigger pictures to give you a full understanding.

FIAT 1600S OSCA

FIAT 1600 S OSCA Coupe 1964 for sale

I think the little Osca is one of the prettiest little cars around in this price class! OSCA, of course, is what the Maserati Brothers did with their lives after selling their names and their lives' work (up to that point) to the Orsi Group in 1937. They were racers at heart, and unlike Ferrari a decade later (and, indeed, the Orsi-owned Maserati marque), didn't want to be fussed with production cars to pay for the venture. The brothers Maserati just wanted to build competition cars--whole cars (chassis, engines, the lot)--and go race 'em. And when their ten-year contractual employment with Orsi ended, they did exactly that.

Exterior: Repainted long time ago and still looks nice. Good chrome and original glass. Some of the rubber parts are a little dry, but still doing their job of keeping the water out. This is the updated and last 1600s Osca that came in 1963 with flat hood and extra lights in the grill. In these pics well fitting Cromodora wheels from a Dino. But also the original steel wheels with hubcaps are along with the car.

Interior: Wonderful red leather complimenting the outside dark blue very nicely. All instruments in very good condition and that beautiful original Nardi steering wheel.

 

Engine: Some may confuse OSCA's engine with Fiat's own homegrown 1,500cc pushrod four, which was in production around the same time, and believe that OSCA's alloy twin-cam head (with chain-driven cams and mechanical tensioners) was fitted to a standard-issue Fiat block. Not true: Fiat's 1,500 was derived from the Lampredi-designed 1,800/2,100/2,300 inline-six (indeed, this 1,500 was two-thirds of the 2,100cc version). Part of the confusion, beyond similar displacements, lies with the notion that Fiat themselves built the OSCA engines--although they were hardly mass produced, requiring plenty of fettling by hand. But the cast-iron block is completely different from a production-line Fiat unit, and the pistons, rods and crank were forged, rather than cast as Fiat's passenger-car-engine pieces were. Standard-issue OSCA engines received a single Weber carburetor, while the upgraded S model received twin side-draft Webers; other visual tells between the Fiat and OSCA 1,500s include a tubular header in lieu of an exhaust manifold, the aluminum engine front cover and the finned oil pan. The engine in the car is just broken in and the oil is like pure honey still.

History: This car was sold new in Verona in 1964 and the man I bought this car from had it since 1975! Having worked at FIAT, he picked this very special car to cherish and own for many years.

Iso Grifo 350 GL 1966

Iso Grifo GL 350 1966 for sale

The Iso Grifo is one of the best GT cars from the 70's you can buy for money -- with the design from Giorgetto Giugiaro Bertone and American power that you can depend on and maintain for fraction of the cost you would spend on any other Italian thoroughbred. There were only 413 Iso Grifos produced and it is today uncertain how many of these are still out there.

Exterior: Painted two years ago in this wonderful petroleum green color. It is a high quality paintwork with great depth and shine. All brightwork and glass in excellent condition. Today riding on Borrani spoke wheels shoed with correct time period Michelin tires. And the original Campagnolo magnesium wheels that the car was equipped with from factory are along with the car if you should prefer these.

Interior: All original interior in fantastic condition! It is only original once! And even if you find the most skilled craftsmen today and have them put together a new interior with the finest materials one can find, it still cannot match the look and feel of something that has been shaped by time and careful maintenance.

Engine: It is not easy to see, but the Chevrolet Corvette engine has been fitted with a very discreet fuel injection system. This gives the already powerful engine even more torque! All original parts are with the car and the fuel injection would be easy to remove if one wanted to. Also fitted is a five speed Tremec gearbox that makes it a bliss to cruise along even on Autobahn.

History: Supplied new on the 2nd of November 1966 to Mr Viktor Ackermans in Belgium. It then changed ownership and came home to Sweden on the 26th of April 2013. Having a 50 year old car with two owners from new is not something we see every day in the collector car business! Mr. Ackerman, the first owner, drove the car in the beginning, but then it was left sitting for almost 30 years, until it found its way to Sweden.

Detomaso Pantera L

DeTomaso Pantera L 1972 for sale

This amazing Detomaso Pantera L came from California to Sweden about 10 years ago. From the looks of the body underneath and inside the doors, it has never seen a drop of rain in its entire life! The body is completely dry and guaranteed no rust. We have fitted European bumpers.

It has just received a new paint in the original factory color, and all rubber seals were replaced. Headlights and power windows work properly, all cooling fans start and stop like they should and keep the car at steady temperature. Engine has recently been serviced. New headers and studs have been fitted and a big bore exhaust. Also many bushings have been replaced.

It rides on the original Campagnolo magnesium wheels and good tyres. The car has no more than 70,000km and is very original inside. Even the original radio works!

Lots of documentation and the original owners manual are with the car.

Alfa Romeo Montreal

Sold: Alfa Romeo Montreal

The Alfa Romeo Montreal is a wonderful GT car. With less than 4000 cars produced, it is a rare sight today!

The great sounding V8 produces 200hp giving this 1,300kg car a nice performance. The chassis number AR 1428714 manufactured on the 31st October 1973 and sold on the 16th April 1975 to Alfa Romeo Germany, Frankfurt. The car was immediately sold to Sweden since we did not have any importer here for this model. The history of owners is complete with copies of old registration documents. The car was in the same family for the last 30 years.

The car was driven a little here the first couple of years by the first owner, but was later passed on to a man living far north in Sweden that had the car only merely for looking at on sunny days. It was kept in dry storage for many years and passed down in generations until I bought it.

I have since put new tyres, replaced the springs and swaybars, and all fluids including all filters (3 fuel and 1 oil). All gauges, buttons together with windows now work properly in the car. It was painted in the early 80s therefore the paint is not perfect. However, the car is rust free and all of the very delicate stainless steel trim is absolutely perfect all around. And it is in original colour, Arancia metallizato. The interior is 100% original with the first carpet and seat upholstery all in very good condition. The eye lids over the headlights are operated with vacuum and these work fine. The 5 speed ZF gearbox feels very good when warmed up. The mufflers on the exhaust system were replaced and the car sounds amazing. The center caps on the wheels have been fitted after these pictures were taken and also the correct side signal lights have been fitted. This is the car to drive and enjoy.

Iso winter star

Iso Grifo 1970

We have a very long and dark winter here in Sweden, but now in the beginning of March the days are starting to become longer and brighter. Today was one of those days that you are looking forward to all winter long! That is when roads are dry and free from salt and snow and you can take out that classic car you have in the garage for a little ride. Today was a day I will remember and cherish for a long time. 

The Iso Grifo is a fantastic car! There were 413 cars like this built by Renzo Rivolta. The man who started out by building refrigerators and the more humble Isetta. This particular vehicle is a very original car that has been here in Sweden for a long time.  Iso Grifo used Chevrolet Corvette engines and this one has the 350hp with a 5 speed ZF gearbox.

Pininfarina 124 Spider

Pininfarina 124 Spider 1985 with only 33,600km!

Mr Lennart Öjesten (famous motorjournalist) from Sweden was living in France back in 1985 and had for some time been thinking about buying a 124 Spider. He contacted the local Fiat dealership in France and they arranged for Mr Öjesten to travel to Turin in Italy personally to collect one of the last produced Pininfarina 124 Spiders (Chassi number 5510058).

Later the car came to Sweden and was driven very little here during the summers in Båstad. When Mr Öjesten passed away, the car was handed down in the family to the grandson who always kept the car in garage and only used it on sunny days.

As of today, the car has travelled no more than 33,506km! And, it looks like when it left the factory back in 1985. We believe this could be one of the best kept 124 Spiders left in the world. Original Rosso red with black interior, original carpets, seats, top -- all in perfect condition. Here is a car for a collector.

It was just serviced with new oil, filter, sparkplugs etc. Also brakes and a new timing belt. And inspected by Swedish Road Ministry. More pictures on this fine vehicle during the week.

Ferrari 355 Berlinetta

Ferrari 355 Berlinetta 1997

Denna bilen blev såld ny av Kruger i Hannover 4e juni 1997 och kom till hem till Sverige år 2000 med ca 2000mil på mätaren.

Bilen har blivit väl skött genom åren och har många fakturor från Sportvagnsservice AB i Stockholm och Autoropa i Malmö. Bilen är utrustad med AC, fjärrstyrt lås/larm och all annan seriemässig utrustning för modellen. Ferrari original stereo med extra cd växlare.

Just denna bilen är i ett bra bruksskick och allting fungerar. Bilen har varit hos Autoropa och fått nya kamremmar 2012-02-03. Den kommer även att behöva en service innan den tas i bruk. Eftersom service är färskvara har vi valt att vänta med denna tills bilen skall användas. Det kanske rentav är något du vill ombesörja själv.

Vi byter gärna in din klassiska sportvagn eller veteranbil.
