The number of programmes devoted to classic cars has proliferated in recent years which has undoubtedly help to improve the popularity of the hobby and enticed many to try their hand at buying and selling. Two such programmes which have new series this year are Slavage Hunters Classic Cars which is fronted by Drew Pritchard and Paul Cowland and Bangers and Cash which is a fly on the wall covering the DT Mathewsons auction house and the work they do.
The lot list for Anglia Car Auction's first sale of the year on the 25th Jan is now looking quite full with plenty to interest most pockets. A good number of no reserve cars as well which always pulls in the punters.
With 2020 now upon us momentum will start to build fast across the various auction houses as they build their lot lists in readiness for the first sales of the year. The ACA list is already gathering momentum and they kick their first sale of the year off on the 25th Jan.
Brightwells have their second online auction running of Classic & Vintage Car Brochures and other Automobilia which closes on the 19th January. There are some interesting books available and bargains no doubt to be had.
The catalogue for Anglia Car Auctions first sale of 2020 is already building and includes something rather unusual in the form of a 1966 Auto Union DKW F11 with just 713 miles from new. This German car is not necessarily at the top of most people's shopping list, but we doubt another exists with such low mileage.
The latest H&H automobilia sale results are now available online. There was a strong James Bond theme with a multitude of bond girl pictures which achieved strong results.
The Alvis TA14 Duncan Coupe is a real rarity and consequently they rarely come to market and when they do they achieve a significant premium over a typical Alvis bodied TA14. The example in the H&H online auction which kicks off on the 4th Dec currently resides in Jersey, but from what we can see of the photographs it appears to be in excellent condition which is reflected in the estimate of £34,000 to £38,000.
The H&H memorabilia auction begins tomorrow and lasts for one week. There is plenty to interest most tastes with an emphasis once again on James Bond memorabilia.
No major surprises today at the Bonhams sale at the RAF museum Hendon. Plenty of no sales among the higher priced cars which is no surprise given that we are less than a month away from a significant election.
Earlier this year Brightwells sold a rather lovely and super rare AC Greyhound which was the first such example to come to market for some time. Next week brings another car to be sold by Bonhams at the second of their MPH sales in Bicester.
Silverstone Auctions latest sale at the NEC on the 10th November set a new auction record for a TR2. The car in question probably has the best provenance you are going to get being an ex-Works 1955 Le Mans 24-hours TR2 driven by Leslie Brooke and Mortimer Morris-Goodall to 19th position overall.
Despite a difficult backdrop at the moment for classic car sales we still get the odd outlier result and the latest was the princely sum of just over £30,000 paid for a 1959 Austin A105 Westminster Vanden Plas. The narrative does not give away the condition of the car, but the photographs certainly do although and it clearly captured the attention of at least two bidders to take it to such a premium which is undoubtedly a record for one of these cars.
