1952 GMC Pickup RAM Jet 350 V8
A beautiful 1952 GMC pickup truck finished in faultless baby blue paintwork. A true American classic, these pickups powered rural America, and you would be hard pressed to find a 1950’s B movie that didn’t have at least one GMC Pickup carrying the hero along to victory.
But this one is more than it first seems. You notice the low stance that hides the top of the whitewall tires first, giving it a mean stance. Then you hear the noise, the noise of a RAM Jet 350 V8, pushing out 345 horsepower and making this a pickup that has classic looks, but thoroughly modern performance.
1954 Jaguar XK-140
Elegance, style and speed in a single package, no wonder the world fell in love with the XK 120. This pristine example found in Mr. Dekkak’s collection is finished in traditional British Racing Green with tan interior, a classic combination that adds to the desirability of the car.
A follow up to the XK 120, the XK 140 launched at the end of 1954, offering more space, more power, better brakes and a first for the Jaguar brand, flashing turn signals! Powered by a 2.5 liter straight 6 engine that features a cylinder head from the C-type, Jaguars racing car of the time that recorded 2 le Mans wins.
With 210 horsepower, performance at the time was astonishing, with cars easily achieving 125 miles per hour top speeds, and while today that may not seem so extravagant, its looks, sound and driving make it no less thrilling to drive now than they day it was made.
Mercedes 1966 250SE
It may be based on the standard Mercedes sedan of the time, the W111, but the transformation to a 2-door coupe gave the car a whole new look and attitude, going from family transport to a vehicle for the stars in one go.
A 2.5 liter straight six with 150 horsepower means this is no hot rod, but that’s not the point. It’s a cruiser, wherever you go in the 250SE, you arrive in style. This particular car blends the grey paint with bright chrome to great effect, and wraparound rear window adding to the contrast with the paint even on the side view.
The interior is a deep red leather, the perfect match for that understated exterior. Only 6,213 250SEs were ever made, and its doubtful you will find a better one that Mr. Dekkak’s.
