Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer previews some of the lots in the next Classic Car Auctions Sale which is being held this Saturday 25th September at Stoneleigh Park.
The lot list for Classic Car Auctions sale on Saturday 25th September is jam packed with a fantastic mix of marques to suit all pockets. Our own Mike Brewer gives his view on a few of the highlights including a no reserve summer cruiser, a rare hatchback and a modern classic.
Billed as The Practical Classics Classic Cars and Restoration Show Sale, as the show was postponed until 2022, there are 130 ‘everyman classics’ with a number of restored classics as well as those from long-term ownership.
One of the stand-out entries is a truly fabulous 1986 Porsche 911 3.2 SSE Coupe which has been owned by the vendor for an incredible 32 years. The UK-supplied example is smartly presented in Black with a grey leather pinstripe cloth interior and has just over 70,000 miles on the clock – estimated at £70,000 – 80,000.
Also offered from significantly long-term ownership is this 1987 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth, which has been with the vendor for the past 30 years. Classically finished in Diamond White with a grey cloth Recaro interior, it has been sympathetically upgraded with a full Scorpion stainless exhaust, a Stage 1 remap and upgraded turbo actuator with the work carried out by Brooklyn Ford’s RS Department. The 65,000 odometer reading is supported by a large history file and this modern classic is estimated at £50,000 – 60,000.
Gary Dunne, CCA’s Sales Manager said: “We are delighted to welcome bidders into the auction hall here at Stoneleigh Park from Wednesday 22nd, through to the morning of the auction on the 25th. This is a fantastic opportunity to view and inspect any cars or interest as well as their all-important history files. We have put together another fantastic catalogue of cars and if you can’t join us in person, we are still offering online and telephone bidding – so you can bid from anywhere in the world.”
A number of Jaguars will cross the block on Saturday, including this freshly restored 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 4.2 Fixed Head Coupe. Factory finished in Pale Primrose; it has recently benefited from a photo-documented ground-up restoration. Estimated at £45,000 – 50,000, the standard of work is superb, with a smart black interior and an immaculate engine bay.
This 1989 Jaguar XJ-S Convertible will be offered for sale from its sole owner from new; supplied new to them on 29th September 1989! Finished in Westminster Blue over Oatmeal leather, this much-loved car has had investment over the years, including work by marque specialists, Swallows. Estimated at £23,000 – 26,000, this car’s story was told in the Jaguar Enthusiasts Magazine in October 2018.
There’s also several modern classics as well as a Ford Escort that has been decommissioned by Top Gear’s Richard Hammond and his new venture The Smallest Cog.
