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.
Just when you thought there could not be any more amazing barn find stories, and yet another comes along and this one really is the dream barn find. How about finding a Lamborghini Miura P400 in a field or a an early flat floor E-Type Coupe in a barn (estimated at 40,000-60,000 Euros! Well this field had it all with a total of 81 rarities buried or hidden in various locations and only discovered following the death of the owner.
With under two weeks to go before the first ACA sale of the year the lot list is already looking quite compelling. Included are a Danish collection of left hand drive cars which are primarily cars in need of recommissioning/restoration, but all are interesting with several E-Types at low estimates.
The lot list for the first ACA sale of 2019 is already starting to build up and now includes two cars owned by George Harrison. The first is a Mercedes-Benz W126 500 SEL AMG estimated at £50,000 to £70,000 and the other is a 1980 Porsche 928S estimated at £90,000 to £120,000.
Bonhams last UK sale of the year generated some interesting results suggesting that prices are undoubtedly still quite weak and if you get your timing right bargains can be had. The standout one for us was the £74,166 paid including premium for a 1961 Flat Floor Series 1 3.
Tomorrow's Morris Leslie auction sale in Scotland has an interesting line up of cars including a real rarity which is an Alvis TB14. With only 100 ever manufactured these cars rarely come up for sale.
We are seeing quite a divergence in fortunes at the auction sales at the moment. High end cars are struggling to find new owners unless the price is right and the car is very original or extremely well restored with excellent provenance.
A one owner TR6 will be sold at Anglia Car Auctions this coming weekend. The car has just 61,000 miles on the clock and although it is showing the scars of long term storage, it appears from the photographs to be reasonably sound.
If you are a fan of Austin Sevens, Richard Edmonds auctions are always a good place to start looking. This week they have two real rarities, a Speedy and a Swallow Two Seater.
The line up for the next ACA sale on Saturday 3rd November is building nicely and includes another super low mileage car, this time a 1981 MG B Roadster LE with just 238 miles on the clock. That sort of mileage is hard to beat and the car if in mint original condition should definitely command a big premium.
If you are a fan of commercial classics, the next Cheffins sale is a must. They have a fantastic selection of pickups, vans and lorries on offer, many of which are extremely rare indeed.
Looking at the auction results of recent weeks there is no doubt that good cars with the right provenance are still making the right money, but outside of that we are seeing weakness with lots of cars remaining unsold. On the retail and trade market we are seeing lots of cars sitting on the market and having their prices tweaked lower due to a lack of interest.
