Paul Walker’s 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS Z/28 is up for auction

More than a decade ago, Paul Walker, star of the “Fast & Furious” movie series, died in a car accident near Los Angeles. He was a car enthusiast and worked with his friend on the restoration of several cars, including the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS Z/28, which will be auctioned in August.

This Camaro RS Z/28 is a completed Walker project and is an ideal opportunity for fans of this model to restore the car as they like. The car requires a lot of work to bring it back to its original condition. The body of the car is not in bad condition and it should be noted that it left the factory in Le Mans blue, which is almost invisible on the car. There are also original Z/28 Rally rims wrapped in BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires.

The interior is not in bad condition considering its age. The upholstery on the seats does not look bad, as do the black plastic and wooden details on the central console. The odometer shows 22,639 miles.

Collectors will appreciate the fact that it is still powered by the original 302 CI V-8 engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.

The car was purchased by Chevrolet collector Merle Duprey in 1982, later purchased by Walker and Rodas, then sold back to Duprey in 2013, before finally being purchased by Solo Speed ​​Shop.

1964 Porsche 356C Coupe is for sale

Between 1964 and 1965, Porsche produced the third version of its first production car, the 356C. All versions of this model are in high demand, especially if they are in good condition. More than 16,000 examples of the 356C version left the production lines and one of them, the 1964 Porsche 356C Coupe is for sale.

This 356C is powered by a 1.6-liter 616/15 flat-four with a factory-rated 88 hp (66 kW) and 90 lb-ft (122 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission that was overhauled and fitted with replacement synchro rings by Ameen Garage of Milwaukee, two years ago. In 2021, the fuel tank, fuel hoses and fuel level sending units were replaced, the carburetor was reconstructed and replacement heating hoses were installed. Last year, the valves were adjusted and the valve cover and drive belt seals were replaced, while the Optima battery was installed at the beginning of this year. It sits on a set of 15″ steel wheels wrapped in 165/80 Nankang tires.

The car is finished in Light Ivory and is in good condition. It is equipped with a windshield washer system, an underside front tow ring, twin engine grilles, body-color bumpers with bright guards, and disc brakes at each corner. In 2020, the body was repainted, the dents were repaired and the rust on the right rocker panel was repaired.

The interior of the car requires certain repairs, such as replacement of seat covers and floor mats. The seats and rear bench are upholstered in black leather, which covers the door panels and the upper part of the dash. In front of the driver is a three-spoke steering wheel and a five-digit odometer showing 42,492 miles (total mileage unknown). Additional equipment includes a cabin heater, a vintage-look cassette radio, and latch-and-link lap belts.

This 356C coupe is now offered in Pine Plains, New York with the owner’s manual, service records, a copy of the Kardex, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

The auction ends on June 22 and the highest bid at the time of writing was USD $44,356.

2014 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is up for auction

Between 2012 and 2015, Bugatti produced only 92 examples of the Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse and one of them, the 2014 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is up for auction.

This car is the 46th produced and was ordered by a Japanese customer who gave up before delivery, so the car ended up in England. It is finished in a combination of black and blue, with blue brake calipers, black magnesium components and stitched seats, which is part of a €375,500 optional equipment package. The current owner bought the car in 2017 and covered it with a paint protection film. In preparation for the auction, the car was serviced in April, which cost more than 30,000 euros.

Inside, the seats are upholstered in Tangerine orange leather with embroidered details on the headrest. Tangerine orange also covers the lower part of the dashboard, door panels and roof, and there is an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel as well as carbon details on the center console.

Under the bonnet is an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine with 1,183 hp (882 kW) @ 6,400 rpm and 1,100 lb-ft (1,500 Nm) @ 3,000–5,000 rpm. That is enough for the car to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.6 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 375 km/h (233 mph). It has only 4,088 km on the odometer.

The auction will take place on June 12th and the estimated value of this Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse is £2,000,000 – £2,500,000 GBP.
