Colt Single Action Army Revolver 1874. This example was in the fifth lot received from Colt to the U.S. Government and has been rebuilt by modifying the barrel length to 5.5 in., possibly for either the Spanish American War or the Philippine Insurrection. It features a six round cylinder with a three screw frame and walnut grips. Expected to bring US$6,500-9,500.
1949 Snowberger-Offy Indy 500 Roadster.
Genuine Meyer-Drake Offenhauser DOHC inline four-cylinder engine, Hilborn fuel-injection, two-speed manual transmission, solid front axle with transverse leaf spring, live rear axle with torsion bar suspension, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Driven by George Lynch during two Indianapolis "500" qualifying attempts. Classic American racer expected to bring US$175-250,000
1949 Rounds Rocket Race Car. First mid-engine, rear-drive Indianapolis racing car. The Rounds Rocket links the early Indy roadsters and the later March Cosworths: Meyer-Drake Offy power with mid-engine architecture. Reputedly some Howard Hughes involvement only adds to the appeal for me.
Expect to pay US$250,000 - 350,000
