A silver Porsche 718 RSK edition race car in center seat configuration is one of the leading lots in this Kissimmee 2023 auction, offered by Mecum. Built in 1959, the car has been in The Rick Grant III Estate Collection since 1990. The race car features a 1587cc DOHC flat-four engine, five-speed manual transaxle, and helically-finned four-wheel drum brakes. The 1959 Porsche 718 RSK is one of 34 produced, of which six were reportedly built in center seat configuration. An all-red BMW 507 Roadster is another key highlight of the event. The 1959 BMW is one of 252 built. The last restoration was completed in 2001. The car was part of the 3,500-mile BMW Vintage Marathon of Europe following the restoration. It has a 3168cc all-aluminum OHV V-8 engine with 150 HP. It also features optional four-wheel disc brakes, dual carburetors, ZF four-speed manual gearbox, and an optional hardtop. It has plush leather seats with a Blaupunkt radio and a sleek steering wheel.
Elvis Presley’s private jet is another key lot. A Lockheed 1329 Jetstar with custom interiors is one of several jets owned by the American singer. Inside the cabin is a luxurious wood panel with red velvet upholstery and gold-finish hardware. The interior cabin seating can accommodate up to nine people. Other features include passenger chairs with swivel and recline functionality, a lavatory with vanity, a television with an RCA VCR player, and more. An array of motorcycles, boats, collector cars, and tractors alongside road art, signs, and pump plates will be available. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Mecum.
