|Coachbuild wholesale @ Gooding & Co.|
Money needs to roll and so do the Special Coachbuilt cars we love so much. Next Saturday, August 15th and Sunday the 16th, a large number of coachbuilt cars are intended to roll from one owner to the next at the Gooding & Company auction at Pebble Beach. No less than 55 coachbuilt jewels are on the shopping list!
Some very famous exclusive masterpieces are being offered, like Scaglietti's Corvette (first out of a series of three) and Pininfarina's one-off Corvette "Rondine", designed by Dutchman Tom Tjaarda. One of three Aston Martins DB2/4 Spiders by Bertone will enter the podium, as well as the one-off Duesenberg SJ Roadster by Bohman & Schwartz. Besides the 'usual' Mulliner, Park Ward, Gurney Nutting and Pininfarina and Ghia bodied cars, there are also some nice Labourdette and Chapron cars.
