In an otherwise difficult sale for Barons this week, one highlight was a fabulous nut and bolt rebuilt Ford Pilot. It really looked stunning and the result reflected that at £19,580.
Coys never seem to go to town in marketing their auctions, perhaps because they already have a well established client base to market to. Their next sale is certainly worth a look with a wide range of militaria vehicles on offer along with some interesting cars, many of which are quite low mileage.
In a market which is somewhat lacklustre at the moment, the auctions are starting to offer up good bargains and opportunities. One such opportunity might well be an AC Greyhound which is due to be sold at Brightwells Leominster sale on the 15th May.
Bonhams Goodwood sale achieved a respectable 70% sale rate yesterday with the top seller being an Aston Martin DB5 which had a vantage specification and sold for £636,600. To see the full results list, please click link 1.
The forthcoming Anglia Car Auction sale on the 13th April is already brimming with cars, but one notable rarity is a right hand drive 1939 Citroen Light 15 Roadster. Finding a saloon version is very easy as the cars are very plentiful, but a UK built roadster is almost a one off.
The unique 1936 Bentley 4. 5 Litre Vanden Plas Tourer barn find was always going to make a big price at H&H this week, but the estimate of £150,000 - £200,000 was proven to be very conservative.
This week brings the latest H&H auction sale to be held at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. The car is an absolute gem, a 1936 Bentley 4.
It does seem that whatever the car if it is sporting a very low mileage and in this case almost delivery mileage, the value is going to be a huge premium. That was certainly the case for a 1991 Peugeot 309 GTi which achieved £14,520 at Barons recent sale.
The results from the latest Silverstone auctions sale at the Race Retro last weekend really reflected the state of the market with a number of no sales along with some good results for cars with realistic estimates. The one standout had to be the £27,225 paid for a VW Golf GTi which had 53,000 miles on the clock.
It is extremely rare for an Austin Seven Swallow Two seater tourer to come to market, and it wasn't until April of last year that one arrived to auction for the first time in more than 10 years. This was only because of the death of the owner and unsurprisingly the market demand was high when Richard Edmonds sold that car with a record price of £40,000 achieved.
The London Classic Car show came to an end today after three days of excitement and rare and interesting cars to look at. We have selected a couple of links to the news wires which have covered the event to give a taste of what has gone on.
Next month Matthewsons will be selling not one, but three extremely low mileage MGs. All three have not been registered and have literally been in storage since purchase even to the extent that they all still have protective factory wax on the paintwork and plastic covers on the interior.
