Duesie and Cisitalia to star at Texas classic car auction next weekend


Some great machines are to go under the hammer at the Motostalgia Auction D'Elegance at Austin Convention Centre, Texas next weekend (16 November).

The ex-Tazio Nuvolari Cisitalia-Abarth in which the Flying Mantuan took his last competitive victory is the obvious headliner with it stratospheric multi-million dollar guide price. 

Also expected to make huge money, however, is a 1933 Duesenberg Model J Franay 'Sunroof' Sport Berline Sedan (main image) with a guide of $1.4-1.85million.

A tempting lot for the historic racers will be the ex-Alan Jones, Austrian GP winning 1977 Shadow DN8. The DFV-powered F1 car is expected to make $1.25-1.75million.

A lot less pricey, but a great rarity that appealed to the C&SC team is a 1967 Ghia 450SS convertible ($105-125,000).

We will also be interested to see if a gorgeous 23-window 1958 VW Samba reaches the dizzy, over $100,000 heights that have been predicted.

The same goes for a 1964 Amphicar with a guide of $50-75,000.
