  3. For Sale 1982 Maserati Quatroporte $3200. Body rough-ish, interior moderate but badass in its’ own handsewn rich supple leather, a little repair and a lot of cleaning and it could be ok . This auction is about the engine. This is the 1982 4.9l engine that is basically the formula one engine for Maserati but is one liter larger. The engine is rated at 280 hp at 5800 RPM, features four cams and four two barrel carbs. This is an Italian market car and features no computer or air quality control, it is purely mechanical. It is mated to Chrysler 727 Torqueflite Automatic from the factory and has 46,000 miles on it. This engine was last driven a year ago but the starter went out when we last revived her. It was running poorly with old gas and when we set up a remote fuel tank with clean gas, the starter stopped working. This is a standard Chrysler starter motor. This would be a unique and impressive engine in any kind of rod. Engine is turning free and is 100% complete as is the remaining drive train and rear end. Top speed of 160 MPH. Very rare (1821 made between 1978 and 1984), very weird and very fast. The angriest sounding engine EVER. Straight pipes and utterly horrid (due to the ridiculous speed and power) gas mileage. Asking $3200. Think outside the crate motor and build something truly original and amazing. The car is located in Birmingham, Alabama
  4. For Sale 1957 Daimler Conquest Century 100 Ultra rare English luxury sport saloon from England’s oldest auto manufacturer. Founded in 1896, the English Daimler was a licensee of the famous German company and was the car of choice of Prince Edward, later HM King Edward VI. The royal family continued their use of Daimlers as official state vehicles until the 1950’s. The late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, continued to use Daimlers until her recent death. Far more exclusive than a Roll-Royce, Daimlers sold in tiny numbers before WW2. The new economic realities of the late 1940s forced Daimler, now part of BSA, to realize the need for a smaller, lower priced but still high quality car to compete in the post-war market. Thus was born the Daimler Conquest, so named for its original list price of 1066 pounds sterling before tax. This car was improved with a higher performance engine and minor body and trim upgrades into the Conquest Century model. The 2.5 liter straight six developed 100hp and was tied to Daimler’s famous “Fluid Flywheel” preselect transmission, last offered in 1957. This original, unrestored car was purchased new by the United States government and we believe was stationed at the embassy in London. This car is in fairly rough shape. Interior is fairly solid, if dirty with very nice burled walnut dash and trim and can be restored easily, engine is missing only carbs (standard 1½ SU carbs). Body is solid but will need metal replaced on the cowl and the bottom of the doors. A full restoration candidate for a truly unique car. Believed to be one of seven in the US. Asking $3,500 obo. The car is located in Birmingham, Alabama
