Wed, 22 Oct 2014 08:47:29 EST Collector Cars for sale at Auction : Article: Sam Pack Selling 132 Vintage Cars at RM Dallas Auction Article Repost: Bradford Wernle; Automotive News; October 2014 Texas dealer Sam Pack thins his vintage car collection Collecting cars 'has been in my DNA' Nov. 15 will be bittersweet for Sam Pack, a Dallas-area Ford dealer and antique car collector. That day Pack will sell 132 of his 473 cherished vintage automobiles at an auction in Dallas. It's a collection including at least one car -- a rare 425-hp 1967 Shelby 427 Cobra -- valued at more than $1 million. Among the other cars going under the gavel will be a 1965 Shelby 289 Cobra with a polished aluminum body purchased new by Carroll Shelby, a 1931 Chrysler CG Imperial Roadster, a supercharged 1957 Ford Thunderbird F-Code, a 1960 Edsel Ranger Convertible and a 1959 Porsche 356 A 1600 S Convertible D. "It will be a very difficult day," says Pack, who will be on hand to watch the Blenheim, Ontario-based auction house RM Auctions sell the collection in Farmers Branch, Texas, a Dallas suburb. The cars will be previewed Nov. 14. Pack, 77, is intensely devoted to his collection and has a personal connection to each car. But Pack, who has no plans to retire, reluctantly decided to downsize the collection to a more manageable size. "My objective is to reduce the size of the collection to what I can display in two buildings," says Pack, who had an 18-year career as a branch manager with Ford Motor Credit Co. before buying his first dealership in 1980. The two buildings make up the Pack Automotive Museum in Carrollton. Pack lives with the cars daily. Sam Pack Auto Group and its 100 corporate employees are headquartered in one of the museum buildings and Pack can see about 20 of the cars from his office door. The museum is not open to the public but is in constant use for special events including political and charitable fundraisers. To Pack, collecting antique cars comes naturally. "It has been in my DNA from Day One. I always had a love affair with cars," says Pack, who operates four Dallas-Fort Worth area Ford dealerships branded Sam Pack's Five Star Ford. But he didn't get serious about collecting until he fell in love with and bought a 1939 Ford convertible. The rest is history. "From 12 years ago until now, the collection has gone from two vehicles to almost 500," he says. Though his collection covers a wide span of automotive history, Pack specializes in American autos of a certain age. "My preference is obviously Ford," he said. "I have a strong preference for the '40s, '50s and '60s. In that era you're looking primarily at Ford and Chevrolet. "If you walked our collection, you could spend time reflecting on the history of our industry and the impact these manufacturers have had on the life we live today." Pack is also selling several concept cars, including the 2004 Lincoln Mark X Concept and the 2005 Ford Sport Trac Adrenalin Concept pickup. The collection also includes some customized gems including a 1939 Lincoln-Zephyr Coupe Custom powered by a Cosworth V-12 engine. Pack's passion for product dovetails neatly with his day job as a dealer. For years, Pack has been on the product committee of the Ford National Dealer Council. Sam Pack Auto Group's four Ford dealerships racked up revenues of about $800 million in 2013 and sold about 15,000 new vehicles and 7,000 used. Pack co-owns five other dealerships in the Tulsa, Okla., area. He recently paid $300,000 for the first 2015 Mustang to come off the line at Ford's Flat Rock, Mich., plant as part of a charity drive. Proceeds from one of the auction cars -- a 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 -- will go to Pack's favorite charity: the Holy Angels Residential Facility in Shreveport, La., for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. "My wife and I have a mentally challenged son. He has been at Holy Angels since Labor Day 1985," says Pack, who also is co-chairman of a $32 million fundraising campaign for Holy Angels. Five full-time employees maintain the cars in Pack's collection. Says Ian Kelleher, the RM Auctions car specialist overseeing the Pack auction: "This isn't just a hobby for him. It's a way of life." Kelleher says Pack is a rare collector, given the large size of his portfolio: "A lot of big collectors lose the connection with their cars. When I was going through the cars with Sam, he had something special to say about every one. When you're selling 132 cars, that's impressive." Pack says collecting old cars is "a family affair," just as his dealerships are. His oldest son, Tony, who manages the North Richland Hills dealership, eventually will take over the dealership group. When the family attends auctions, two of Pack's granddaughters, Carly and Macy, often go along. "You'll see one on one side, one on the other and they'll have their auction catalogs," Pack says. "The oldest one is Carly [age 14]. She's taking notes. She may be the one who at some point says: 'This is my collection.'"

The new model would have to meet newly-developed US Federal regulations, which meant a tremendous amount of time-consuming development work before the new design could be introduced. Ferrari's first known prototype for such a car emerged during the winter of 1967 with bodywork presaging the final design that would be adopted, although its front-end treatment looked back towards that of the 275 GTB. It used a three-valve per cylinder 4-litre V12 engine that was not taken further. Instead a Tipo 251 power unit would be adopted which was a more conventional 4.4-litre with hemispherical combustion chambers in its twin-cam heads, and single-plug ignition. The block had been lengthened to accommodate a bore and stroke of 81mm x 71mm, identical to the Tipo 245 engine's which already powered the 365 GT 2-plus-2, GTC and GTS models. The new 4.4-litre unit was lubricated by a dry-sump system with a 14-litre separate tank. Compression ratio was 8.8:1 and with six Weber 40DCN carburettors the unit delivered a muscular 352bhp at 7,500rpm, with 318lbs/ft torque at 5,500rpm – enough – indeed, as one English technical writer of the time described as being "...more than enough to pull your house down". The mechanical ensemble, comprising engine, torque tube and rear-mounted five-speed transaxle was attached to the tube chassis at four points – two on the engine and two on the transaxle – and the familiar 2.4-metre wheelbase was retained, which dated back in unbroken line to the 250 GT SWB. To clothe the new 365 GTB/4, Pininfarina created a classical and now legendary design which combined Maranello tradition with modernity. Only the prototype body was actually built by Pininfarina and as with the preceding Berlinettas it was Scaglietti who actually made the bodies in steel (with opening panels in aluminium) for the production examples. Venue for the new model's launch was the October 1968 Paris Salon, and its immediately successful reception saw it being nicknamed the 'Daytona' in honour of the Ferrari factory team's 1-2-3 defeat of the mighty Ford GT fleet in the 1967 Daytona 24-Hour race. Capable of achieving 278km/h (172mph) in standard form, the new Ferrari was the fastest production car in the world at that time. It also displayed the quickest acceleration when pitted against the Lamborghini Miura, Mercedes-Benz 350SL, Jaguar V12 E-Type and the De Tomaso Pantera. Over 400 metres from a standing start the Daytona clocked just 13.8 seconds. By the end of August 1971, Daytona production had reached the 500 examples demanded for FIA homologation in the International Group 4 Special Grand Touring car racing category. Initially Maranello had no plans to exploit this opportunity. However, several valued clients demanded a competition version with which to go racing at any level, and it was Chinetti's North American Racing Team which first took the plunge – running a car in the 1969 Le Mans 24-Hours. Manufacture of Competizione versions for customer use then began at the Assistenza Clienti department of the factory in Modena and a succession of three main Competition series of 365 GTB/4 Daytona Berlinettas would emerge into 1973. For homologation purposes, the later Daytona Competizione cars of Series 2 and 3 had to retain steel-panelled bodywork. It was to compensate for their additional weight, and therefore more problematic vehicle dynamics, that the Series 3 cars of 1973 were equipped with the ultimate in competition 365 GTB/4 engines. These power units featured high-compression pistons, reprofiled cams, re-choked carburettors and 9.9:1 high-compression cylinder heads. They developed an awesome 450bhp, with the additional spread of torque over an extremely wide rev range. Since even this engine was tailored absolutely to the demands of 24-hour endurance racing - as at Daytona and Le Mans - even this state of tune retained such practicable, easily serviced features as standard-sized valves, and even the standard connecting rods were strong enough for safe use. Obviously, therefore, the ultimate specification 365 GTB/4 Daytona 'dream car' would be a combination of the Series 1 lightweight alloy bodied chassis unit, with the ultimate 4.4-litre V12 engine, the Series 3. Late in 1973 the first of the replacement rear-engined 365 GT4/Boxer Berlinetta cars were delivered. But for many the notion of converting a standard production 365 GTB/4 Daytona into at least a look-alike Competizione variant was to prove completely irresistible... THE MOTORCAR OFFERED This individual Ferrari 365 GTB/4 'Daytona' Berlinetta began life as standard production car chassis '12765', which was the 50th example to be built in sequence and which originated with Scaglietti-made body number '50'. Records confirm that it was first completed by the factory on 21 July 1969, as a regular production road car which was delivered new during that same month to official dealer Gastone Crepaldi Sas of Via San Marco 26, Milan. Crepaldi found a ready buyer for '12765' in a Signor Montanari, of Brescia, in north-eastern Italy. Its immediate subsequent ownerships have then passed unrecorded – although research is still continuing and may have produced results by the time of viewing - but we understand that the car was then converted into what is described as "...a semi-Group 4 competition... 'Racer' version apparently by Autofficina Gioacchino Vari in Rome". The work was undertaken in around 1974 and it saw the car equipped with an internal roll-over bar structure, flared fenders to accommodate wider-rim front and rear wheels and tyres, its headlight configuration was changed to near competition standard, a front spoiler or air-dam was fitted, and sliding plexiglass side windows and a competition-demanded outside fuel filler arrangement were also added. The car was finished in red, its original livery as-new having been 'Rosso Chiaro 20-R-190' and its original interior 'Nero VM 8500'. Its side window frames were repainted black during the same conversion process. We understand that the car was acquired by Fabrizio Violati for his growing personal Ferrari collection probably during the later 1970s, and certainly it was with him by 1980. Renowned Ferrari authority Marcel Massini considers that this might be the car that was driven by Vittorio Setti during the Ferrari Days at Modena meeting of September 15-18, 1983. And it was then possibly the Daytona Competizione-equipped car which Fabrizio Violati himself drove during the Ferrari Club Italia meeting at Alessandria, Italy, on June 22, 1985. While this is not one of the official Ferrari factory-built 365 GTB/4 Competizione Berlinettas built in period, 1971-73, it is a home-grown independent conversion of a known and well-recorded production-series model - the conversion having been carried out in near-period, around 1974 ... What sets Ferrari Daytona '12765' apart from the normal run-of-the-mill lookalikes is that it was then taken on by Fabrizio Violati himself – a real-life, dyed-in-the-wool, blood-red Racer with a capital 'R' – and as part of his illustrious Collezione Maranello Rosso it has come down to us today after least 34 years in Violati-sphere stewardship. It is valued, inevitably, at a fraction of the potential cost of a genuine 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competizione Berlinetta from period, yet it promises to provide every bit as much adrenalin-pumping delight on both road and track. It would be widely useable in suitable Vintage events, and with adequate-standard further restoration and preparation it could also grace any collection as a Ferrari with a perfectly respectable long-term Museum history. We commend it to you as a 1970s 4.4-litre 4-cam V12 Ferrari Berlinetta of great potential, which has yet to be fully explored and exploited. Without reserve. Thu, 14 Aug 2014 22:40:40 EST
