This is an interesting car, George Formby who was a very famous entertainer of the 30s and 40s owned this MK1 Jaguar until an unfortunate accident with an Austin A30 brought his ownership to an end with the damaged car traded in for a MK 9 Jaguar. The incident was well publicised at the time according to ACA taking place on the August bank holiday of 1959.
Historics latest sale was last Saturday and the results are now available. The sale included several cars from the estate of Alan Monkley who collected Ford Savage MK2 Cortina cars which included a super rare 1970 estate believed to have been owned by Jeff Uren who had raced for and managed the Ford Works team.

Silverstone Auctions latest sale at the NEC Classic Car Show are now available on their website. Some good results achieved including two new auction records.
A few images from last week's ACA sale. Our pick of the bunch has to be the Mazda RX‑7.
Mathewsons kicked off their penultimate sale of the year last night with the first 150 lots. The one that caught our eye wasn't a car but a tractor, a 1981 County Tractor which managed a hammer price of £113,000! It will be interesting to see how today goes.
We can recall once speaking to someone who owned a Ford Pilot Van but we have never seen one to this day until now. Historics will be selling what they say is believed to be the only Ford Pilot van left in the UK albeit in left hand drive form making it something of a rare beast to say the least.
The lot list for next weekend's ACA sale has been building nicely with some very interesting cars on offer such as a Bristol 403 in need of total restoration which is estimated at £5,000 to £10,000. A the other end of the spectrum is a 1955 Aston Martin DB 2/4 which has been the subject of some restoration work and is estimated at £90,000 - 110,000.

Mike Brewer famed for several car programmes, the most famous of which is Wheeler Dealers is due to sell more cars from his collection, this time at Silverstone Auctions NEC Classic Car Show sale on the 13th November.

A very rare 1939 Sunbeam-Talbot 4-Litre Sports Saloon with an estimate of £28,000-32,000 will be sold at Brightwells online auction next week. The car is thought to be one of just two survivors from a production of 44 cars.
Of the cars on offer at Barons sale on Friday the standout result has to be the superb Jaguar 420 which had been subjected to a £40,000 rebuild. The car in the photographs does look stunning and certainly justified what we think is an auction record for a 420 at £34,100.
