Modern Classics lead the way at Letchworth Motor Auctions November sale

Classic, Retro and Performance car sale.

Modern classics lead the way in the varied vehicles on offer for Letchworth Motor Auctions’ next sale for Classic, Retro and Performance cars on Saturday 19th November.

A trio of ‘fast Fords’ including a pair of Ford Escort XR3i Cabriolets and one owner from new 1990 Ford Sierra XR4i are bound to attract plenty of interest.

The 1989 XR3i is a project in need of recommissioning, confirmed by the £3,000 -£4,000 estimate. The 1990 model is a special edition ‘two-tone’ variant with 142,575 miles on the clock that has had plenty of work undertaken from 2009 onwards including new engine, cambelt, clutch and alternator. A low estimate of £3,500 – £4,500 makes it an ideal car for someone who wants to get their hands on a ‘hot hatch’ at a bargain price.

Stored in a barn since 2016, the four-door manual XR4i with 73,997 miles on the clock does still start, run and drive but will also require recommissioning. The exterior presents well but needs attention in a couple of areas. However, the interior has not been touched so will need a good clean. If you are looking to get into the sporting hatchback arena, the estimate of £4,000-£5,000 is an ideal price.

Sticking with cars from the 90s, there’s a stunning mix of saloons to catch the eye. Mercedes Benz is represented by the 320 CE Cabriolet and 500 SL 32, both automatic gearbox convertibles with low mileage for their ages.

The 1994 Jaguar XJ6 Auto is another crowd pleaser as is the 1999 Chevrolet GMC Camaro and Saab 9-3 SE Turbo.
