The Classic Car Auctions sale takes place on Saturday 25 March and Sunday 26 March, with both days set to feature a wealth of tempting classics for every taste and budget. Our own Mike Brewer shares his highlights for the coming sale….
Saturday’s classic car sale starts with the 1974 Reliant ‘Rebel with a Cause’ that was donated to Practical Classics magazine and completed at last year’s show. It’s being sold in aid of NHS charities, so expect plenty of bids.
Also guaranteed to stand out is ‘Colin the Camper’, the 1963 Bedford CA Dormobile restored by Mike Brewer and ‘Elvis’ Priestley on hit show, Wheeler Dealers. It carries a guide price of £14,000-£18,000.
Alongside traditional classics visitors will discover some more modern vehicles, including a 1996 BMW M3 Evolution in stunning Estoril Blue. Or perhaps the 2010 Ford Focus RS holds more appeal – it’s guided at £55,000-£65,000.
Those after a project are catered for, too, and might be tempted by the 1972 Jaguar XJ6 Series 1. Being sold at No Reserve, it was part of a collection and has been off the road for a few years.
Sunday’s classic car sale features plenty more mouth-watering classics, including some very low mileage vehicles. The 1978 Ford Escort Ghia Mk 2 has covered just 9515 miles and is in lovely, original condition. Or how about the 1981 DeLorean DMC12 with just 3788 miles on the clock? It was registered in the UK in 2016 and benefits from work on the body and mechanicals.
There are also more projects, including a garage-find 1971 Jaguar E-Type S3 V12 Coupe that has been with its current owner for 29 years. It carries a guide price of £18,000-£22,000 and is sure to appeal to fans of these stylish British sports cars.
For anyone that’s an enthusiast of French classics the ‘ripple bonnet’ 1959 Citroen 2CV is being offered at No Reserve. A mechanical rebuild was carried out in 2013 and there’s a re-trimmed interior, too.
Commercial vehicles haven’t been forgotten, either. The 1975 Ford Transit Custom Pick Up was meticulously restored in 2009 and remains in show-winning condition. It’s guided at £18,000-£22,000.
