Pebble Beach week is coming up, and RM Sotheby's will once again host an auction there. It will run from August 18 to August 20. Ahead of the auction, RM Sotheby's brought some of the cars from a Detroit-area collection that will be offered for the press to check out. They included a 1927 Miller race car, a 1929 Auburn 8-90 Speedster, 1956 Porsche 356 A, 1964 Porsche 356 C and a 1971 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Expected sale prices for these vehicles range between $90,000 at the low end for the 1956 Porsche, to as high as $850,000 for the Miller race car.
- This is a 1964 Porsche 356 coupe. It's got the 1.6 liter flat four in it. And this is going to be on sale at the RM auction in Monterey, California around Pebble Beach week.
They're expecting it to go for $90,000 and $120,000. It is the original color combination. It's not the original paint, but it was originally painted in this green with the brown interior. It is the original engine and transmission that came with the car.
It is a 1964, so this is a 356 that would have been sold at the same time as the 911, which had just come out for this year. So in case you are one of the more stubborn Porche enthusiasts, you didn't have to buy a new 911. You could still get the tried and true pushrod flat four Porsche that had made the company famous for so many years.
