For those seeking one of the most memorable cars from the 80s sitcom era you can probably do no better than Derek Trotter's van which is due to be sold at Silverstone Auctions next sale currently due to take place on Friday 5th March. The van comes with good provenance and is believed to be one of the half a dozen or so vans used during the series.
On the other side of the pond we thought this sale is worthy of mention given the size of a one man collection of GM cars that were sold yesterday continuing today. The collection has been put together by collector, Rick Treworgy who began his collection in the 60s for his museum, Muscle Car City in Florida, but has now decided to retire and thin down his collection.
Mathewsons have taken the decision to go ahead with their first auction of the year on the 5th and 6th Feb. This will mean under current lockdown restrictions that no physical viewings will take place which will mean buyers will have to be totally reliant on photographs and descriptions provided.
Sean Connery's BMW 635CSI is currently available via the online auctioneer The Market. The car was bought in Spain by Sean Connery in 1989 and he kept it for the next ten years.
If you are seeking an interesting micro car project, the next ACA sale which at present is scheduled for the 13th and 14th Feb will include a trio of Heinkel Trojan restoration projects. Two have not been on the road since the 90s and one has not been out since the 70s.
The current lockdown means that the next Anglia Car Auctions sale will now take place over two days on the 13th and 14th February. SWVA have cancelled their January sale and their next sale will now take place on their next scheduled auction date of the 26th March.
Early consignments to Bonhams MPH sale at Bicester Heritage on the 21st March include Herbie and Mr Bean's Mini. If you want to stand out in a crowd either will do although retaining the chair might draw too much attention! To see the current lot listings for this sale, please click here.
Okay, we hear the screams that is not a classic and perhaps so, but more likely than not it will in future decades become collectible. SWVA are selling one such example in their 29th Jan sale with just 179 miles on the clock.
This is undoubtedly a new auction record for a 1970 Rover 3. 5 P5B Coupe.
We suspect the ongoing pandemic and an understandable general reluctance to travel at present led to several of Historics no reserve cars being left with few bidders. There is also an assumed thought process that no reserve cars at auction usually end up with lots of spirited bidding and achieved prices sometimes better than if a big reserve/estimate is placed on the car.
A quick reminder that this week brings several end of year auctions. This includes Historics at Ascot Racecourse on the 12th.
If you haven't already seen it, now is the time to take a look at the latest and largest so far H&H auction of automobilia which is due to end over the weekend. The sale has just about everything in it from signed Bond photographs to huge amounts of literature to an Austin J40 pedal car.
