RM Sotheby’s opens big in Monterey

By

The 26 cars of the Paul Andrews Estate Collection, spanning 65 years of automotive history, sold in RM Sotheby’s opening night in Monterey for more than $34.4 million.

Regarded by many as one of the most beautiful sports GT cars of the 1960s, the rare 1962 Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato led the night, bringing $9.52 million. It is one of only 19 DB4GT Zagatos built and with only six left-hand-drive examples.

Another highlight of the Thursday evening dedicated auction was one of the oldest cars in the collection, the beautifully restored 1929 Duesenberg Model J ‘Butterfly’ Dual-Cowl Phaeton, which sold above the high estimate for $3.305 million. Also selling above its high estimate was the 1965 Aston DB5 Convertible for $3.195 million.
