A 1923 Talbot 8/18 Coupe was one of the stars of Dorset Vintage and Classic Auctions’ autumn sale
A 1923 Talbot 8/18 Coupe was one of the stars of Dorset Vintage and Classic Auctions’ autumn sale, held on the 22nd September. In beautifully original condition, the petite pre-war Coupe sold to a local vintage car devotee who intends to retain the Talbot’s authentic appearance.
Fine, warm weather drew a large crowd of enthusiasts and buyers to the auction at the Gartell Light Railway in Yenston, South Somerset. Notable results included an excellent MG C Roadster (with a Lenham Conversion) which sold for a very respectable £9350; a restored Minor Traveller which made £5170, an elegant 1936 Talbot 10 Airline Coupe, which sold for £5280 and is heading off to Italy, and an immaculately restored MG TD Midget, which made £15950 and will remain in the Somerset area. A Rover P4 90 Saloon was purchased by a Sussex Rover collector for £4840 and a very original Land Rover Series 1 of 1955 vintage made £3080 and will remain in Dorset.
A fine selection of motorcycles entered into the sale found new custodians, including a 1971 Triumph Bonneville T120R, a pristine 1978 Suzuki GS750, a 1967 Royal Enfield Crusader Sports and a beautiful 1976 Benelli.
