Autumn 2017 Sale Results
The ever-eclectic mix of desirable classics enticed a large gathering of classic car enthusiasts to our autumn historic car auction, held at the beautiful Athelhampton House, near Dorchester, on the 7th of September. Easily the most desired of all entries was the now extremely rare 1972 Jensen Interceptor III which, despite requiring some cosmetic attention, had an excellent history and sold well above its pre-sale estimate for £19800. Snapping at the Jensen’s heels in the popularity stakes was the equally-unusual 1967 Volvo P1800S. Also requiring some minor attention, the P1800 had a modified engine and a good history, and sold for £17600. Sales of the selection of pre-war motors were also good; the 1934 Ford Model Y Alpine Tourer by Arrow sold for £9350, the amazing 1934 Austin 10/4 Colwyn Cabriolet made £16697, and a cherished and rare 1934 Standard 10/12 Speed Saloon found a new home for £6160, as did the 1932 Morris Minor Sliding Head Saloon for £6050. Mid-twentieth century to modern classic sales included a little 1946 Standard 8 Drophead Coupe (£6490), a lovely 1968 Riley Elf Mk III (£7755), a 1967 Jaguar S-Type 3.4 Saloon (£14025) two MG B Roadsters from 1964 and 1971 (making £7480 and £8140 respectively), and a 1960 Citroen 2CV AZLP (£5500), as well as a plethora of other collectibles, including a restored 1951 Lambretta Model C which sold for £3190.
