Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to offer a slick little 1987 Alfa Romeo Graduate Roadster. Audiences swooned over the scandalous 1967 film "The Graduate". The film follows Benjamin Braddock, played by a young Dustin Hoffman in his transition into adulthood after graduating from college. Braddock is seduced by the infamous Mrs. Robinson and eventually falls in love with her daughter Elaine. Hoffman's character spends most of his time lounging in the pool, or driving his beloved 1966 Alfa Romeo Spider. The Alfa, finished in bright red, made nearly as strong as an impact on screen as Mrs. Robinson entering the room in the nude.

Alfa Romeo capitalized on this exposure of their brand, and their stylish roadster. They introduced the "Graduate" trim level as the entry level model for their spider. This particular 1987 model is a great example which shows only 33,081 miles on the odometer. The car is finished in Jet Black exterior with Beige interior. The car has been with the same owner since new and even comes with its original window sticker.

This particular car shows some signs of its age on the paint, which may benefit from a nice buff and polish. The engine however, the 2.0 Liter Dual Overhead Cam 4 cylinder runs beautifully. This twin cam, with mated to the 5 speed manual transmission makes for a beautiful driving experience. Imagine running through the gears with the wind in your hair listening to the Italian symphony which comes from the exhaust! This is a wonderful car to enter the classic car hobby with. The car shares the same Italian passion and good looks as higher end exotics which charge ten times the price. This is a great opportunity to get into a beautiful Italian made classic before these Alfas spike in price.

1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

1966 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350


Engine: 289 CID V8
Transmission: 4-Speed Manual
Mileage: 16,500 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to present this ultra rare and desirable 1966 Shelby GT350 Fastback Mustang. Documentation and known history are two important attributes for collector cars. This 1966 Shelby GT350, SFM6S2185, possesses plenty of both. As noted in the Shelby American Automobile Club’s “Shelby Registry 1965-67,” the GT350 was shipped from the Shelby American assembly facility in Los Angeles to Ford Motor Company in June 1966, then delivered to Courtesy Motors in Littleton, Colorado. In the 1970s, the Shelby was owned by a southern California detective who sometimes used this beauty as an undercover vehicle. Since 1979, it has been in the hands of collectors to ensure it was cared for through the years. During the 1980s, it participated in west coast shows, including SAAC-6 and the Palo Alto Concours D’Elegance. From 1987 to 2013, the GT350 was owned by a private collector; a 1988 restoration resulted in numerous Best of Show awards, perfect scores from both SAAC and the Mustang Club of America, and features in several magazines. “Super Ford” magazine named it “the best Shelby of the year” for 1989. The Guardsman Blue GT350 retains much of its original equipment, including the factory-installed 4-speed transmission and matching-numbers 289 Hi-Po V-8 that was modified to Shelby specs for 306 horsepower. Like all 1966 GT350s, the car was delivered to Shelby American as a K-code Mustang fastback, then upgraded with a Cobra aluminum intake with Holley carb, Tri-Y headers, Koni shock absorbers, rear traction bars, 15-inch wheels, dash-mounted tachometer, competition seatbelts and wood steering wheel. Externally, the Shelby models differed from regular Mustangs with a fiberglass hood with scoop, plexiglas rear quarter windows and side scoops. Only 2,378 were built. In 2014, this car underwent a fresh restoration by Orlando Mustang, which resulted in Best in Class awards at the 2104 Keels and Wheels Concours D’Elegance and the 2015 Valero Show. It was featured in the July 2015 “Mustang Times” and displayed at the Bush Library from August to October 2016.
