Classic Car Auctions on the 28th March

Classic Car Auctions on the 28th March

In line with other auction houses Classic Car Auctions next sale will be a closed sale with no members of the public able to attend. It does mean you are reliant on descriptions and video that will be provide by the auction house and vendors. For many this is going to be a slightly uncomfortable way to buy a car, but at the moment the auction houses have little choice. Whether they will continue with sales will probably depend upon how well these sales go with the revised format. Next weekend's CCA sale would have taken place at the NEC during the Practical Classics Restoration show, but will now be behind closed doors. The lot list is certainly wide and varied providing plenty of choice and it will be interesting to see what results are generated given the pressures the classic car industry now faces from the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic. We know from classic car dealers that during the last week the market has come to a grinding halt and the auction houses will do well if they get more than 50% of cars away during the crisis.

Our pick not because it is likely to be the car most in demand, but because of the provenance is a 1948 Jaguar 1.5 MKIV which was bought by the vendor's father when it was just one year old. It therefore comes with a fantastic history file. This car has the smallest power point of the MK IV cars, but they look great and this one certainly appears to be in good order. The estimate is about right at £20,000 to £25,000.
