RM Sotheby’s will expand its footprint in California this summer via the presentation of a Santa Monica sale, June 24-25 at the historic Barker Hangar. The event, which marks its fifth anniversary in 2017, was previously presented solely by RM’s sister company, Auctions America. This year, the two companies will work collaboratively.

Early highlights for this year’s auction are led by a U.S.-delivery 1992 Ferrari F40 with less than 16,000 miles on the odometer, and a black-on-black 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB fitted with F1 transmission and showing just over 12,000 miles from new.

Representing a whole other side of SoCal car culture, the June auction will also feature an eclectic series of vehicles from noted collector and television personality Barry Weiss. The group is led by the custom 1939 Lincoln-Zephyr “Scrape”.Additional highlights from Weiss’ collection include a one-of-a-kind 1936 Lincoln-Zephyr Twin-Nose, and a 1941 Kozy Coach Company Caravan, upgraded with new electric and decorated with period memorabilia.
