I collezionisti di Porsche, però, non sono attratti solamente dagli aspetti materiali di questi incredibili veicoli, ma anche dall’incredibile storia dell’azienda che li produce, che si risollevò con successo dalla Seconda Guerra Mondiale per poi diventare uno dei brand più consolidati al mondo.

1935 Studebaker Model 2A Dictator Phaeton
Believed to be One of the Only Examples Known to Exist in the United States\n\n88hp 205.3 cu. in. L-head inline six-cylinder engine, four main bearings, Stromberg single-barrel carburetor, three-speed synchromesh transmission with overdrive, independent planar wheel suspension, semi-floating rear axle and four-wheel hydraulic brakes. Wheelbase: 114"\n\nIn 1925 Studebaker introduced the Dictator model, which replaced the Standard Six. To improve its reputation and image Studebaker aggressively set off on a record-breaking campaign in the second half of the 1920s; in the end the Dictator broke 28 distance and time records – a feat unequalled by any car in its class. In 1933 Studebaker went into receivership, but came back strongly in 1934 and despite the lean years of the Depression Studebaker had continued to build stylish and distinctive cars with the help of young stylist Raymond Loewy.\n\nTo reflect the focused, determined and enduring qualities of its cars in 1935 Studebaker sought a more rakish, chiseled look. An encircled bird-in-flight hood ornament helped emphasize the idea of motion even when parked. The taller, narrower, raked grille, the elongated bullet headlamps, the long horizontal hood panels provided Studebaker with a sleeker, faster look. The bumper was no longer V-shaped but was rather a bow as if bent by the wind.\n\nYet, 1935 emphasized more improved engineering and technology, than styling changes. The Planar independent front suspension was introduced on the Dictator series 2A to provide a “Miracle Ride.” Vacuum hydraulic brakes, overdrive free-wheeling, radio speaker provision in the headliner above the front windscreen, and the “Hill Holder” which locked the brakes when the driver depressed the clutch, were all new that year.\n\nThe Studebaker Dictator series 2A offered here was shipped as a bare chassis to Australia where it was fitted with a right hand drive Phaeton body with side curtains. Studebaker commonly sent their cars to Australia as a bare chassis as it reduced overall shipping weight and space and served as a practical means to avoid possible damage to the body in transit. The Phaeton body was never built on North American shores and very few, if any, would have been imported back to the U.S., making this car more than likely the only one of its kind in North America. When this car was returned to the United States it was converted to left hand drive and was restored to excellent condition inside and out; the burgundy paint shows nicely as does the tan interior.\n\nThis being the only known example of its kind in North America and in such fine condition, this Studebaker is exceptionally desirable, and would become the centerpiece of any Studebaker collection.\n\nChassis no. 5508161 RM Sotheby's
1959 Chevrolet Corvette Child's Car
Specifications: Fiberglass single-passenger child’s car powered by gasoline engine. Wheelbase 45”\n\nThis child’s Corvette appears to be in very good original condition. Its blue finish is the original fiberglass surface, and it presents a good overall appearance. The side cove is done in appropriate Corvette White, but while the correct trim moldings are in the fiberglass, they have been left in body color. Headlight lenses are plain silver and taillights are painted red. Since there is no electrical system per se, the lights are left as simulations. It rides on solid rubber tires, with standard drive from engine to rear axle. It is 76 inches in overall length, 24 inches wide and 18 inches high, excluding the steering wheel, which extends above the top of the body. There are brackets for a windshield, which is not presently with the car.\n\nNotably, this lovely little Corvette was actually used by one of the Swigart family children in his youth. No doubt, when he wasn’t around, it was also likely used by his other brother and sisters...It remains in highly presentable order with the body currently removable from the chassis.\n\nEstimate:\n$3,000 – $6,000\nOffered without reserve\n\nChassis no. 8632906 RM Sotheby's
