of this brand new blue bombshell at the height of his fame, and drove
the vehicle until 1974 when it was sold. The car carries an estimate
of £40,000 – £60,000 ($61,000 – $91,000 USD).
Sherman M4A1 Grizzly I Cruiser: This tank, designed in Canada in
1943 for use in WWII, was likely among the Cruisers used to train
Canadian troops in England, rather than on the frontline based on its
unscathed condition. As one of only 188 made, it is expected to fetch
£150,000 – £200,000 ($228,000 – $305,000 USD).
Subaru Impreza WRC 97: H&H Classics are excited to offer the first
Subaru Impreza that Prodrive built to WRC specification, and which
racing legend Colin McRae debuted on the 1997 Monte Carlo Rally in
their October 14 Duxford auction. The estimate for the vehicle is
£175,000 – £200,000. ($267,000 – $305,000 USD)
BMW Rennsport RS 500 Type 256: At an estimated value of £160,000 –
£180,000 ($244,000 – $275,000 USD) the Rennsport features a black and
chrome design, exposed drive shaft, and 500 cc engine. This classic
post-war model is in excellent condition, making it the perfect
