October promises to be a very busy month for auctions with the major companies hosting sales on both sides of the Atlantic. This weekend, it is up to Bonhams with the annual Simeone Automotive Museum auction in Philadelphia and the Zoute Sale in Belgium.
One of the more interesting cars due to cross the block in the Simeone museum is this rare Ford Mustang Boss 429. A true homologation special, it was mainly conceived to allow the new 'semi-hemi' big block engine to be used in the NASCAR series. The cars were assembled in the same Kar Kraft facility where the Le Mans winning GT40s had also been prepared. Available for just two years, the Boss 429 ranks among the most sought after of all none-Shelby Mustangs.
The star car of the Zoute sale is this BMW 507 Roadster, which had originally been delivered new to a Greek prince. It remained in the country for three decades before it was finally repatriated by the current custodian. Following a complete restoration, he has used the 507 Roadster extensively, adding a further 55,000 km to the tally.
Later this month, Gooding & Company will hold their second Geared Online sale of this year. Among the early consignments of this online-only, time based auction is this Ferrari 250 GT Lusso. It has been freshly restored but has not been shown at any event yet.
