A 74-car catalogue goes under the hammer at Bonhams’ Goodwood Members’ Meeting sale on 10 April, led by a US-spec 1967 Maserati Mistral Spyder 4000 with a guide of £300,000 – 400,000. Imported into the UK in 1981 as a partially dismantled project by the consignor, a previous Secretary of the Maserati Owners' Club, it was the subject of a full restoration with an engine rebuild entrusted to renowned marque specialists Bill McGrath Maserati, returning to the roads in 1986.
Highlights among the Aston Martins on offer include a 1964 DB5 (estimate £280,000 – 350,000) and a 1975 Lagonda (estimate £200,000 – 300,000). The two-owner DB5 was acquired by the vendor in 1968, off the road since 2018 it’s described as requiring a full mechanical overhaul; while the Lagonda is one of only eight made and started life on display at the 1975 Earls Court Motor Show, subsequently restored and given a 7.0-litre upgrade at RS Williams in 2006.
The star of Ian Irvine-Fynn’s eight-car AC Collection is his 1958 Ace with a pre-sale estimate of £140,000 – 180,000. Owned by Irvine-Fynn since 1968, the Ace is joined in the collection by a 1959 Aceca (estimate £80,000 – 120,000) which he also bought in 1968 and a unique Ford Zephyr-engined 1963 Greyhound 2.6-Litre, built for AC Cars' boss Derek Hurlock (estimate £40,000 – 60,000).
Elsewhere, other notable entries include a recently restored 1974 Ferrari 365 GT4 BB, one of only 54 UK-supplied right-hand drive examples (estimate £200,000 – 300,000), plus a 1976 Porsche 911 Carrera that was campaigned by Sobislav Zasada in the 1977 London to Sydney Marathon and by Björn Waldegaard in the 2005 East African Classic Safari Rally (estimate £200,000 – 300,000).
