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.
H&H held their first online auction recently and included within the lot list was a 1978 Ford Fiesta 950 with just 141 miles from new. The car which had been in the Science Museum for a long time was a unique example and probably the only one of its kind with such a low mileage.
Richard Edmonds first sale of the year takes place at their normal venue of the Chippenham Auction rooms on the 8th February. It will be a sale of Petroliana and Automobilia from the Estate of the late Gary Dowell.
You can't get much lower mileage than a 1978 Ford Fiesta 950 which will be offered in an online auction of cars on the 2nd Feb by H&H. The reason for the low mileage is that the car was stored at the London Science Museum from 1980 to 2017 and was in fact on display until 2015.
SWVA kick 2019 off with their first sale of the year this coming Friday. They always have a good number of interesting cars to tempt buyers and the standout one has to be the immaculate looking 1970 MGC GT which has been the subject of a £22,000 restoration.
If you are a fan of Mr Bean and would like to be driving around in a Mini clad in the same colour scheme as his, now is your chance. This very exacting replica was assembled live at the November 2017 Lancaster Classic Car Show.
