DVCA LOOKING FORWARD TO THE END OF SUMMER CLASSIC AUCTION
From Dorset’s long established Specialist Auction House, dealing solely in Vintage and Classic Vehicles and Automobilia, comes a truly classic selection of vehicles to be sold under Covid conditions on Thursday September 9th 2021.
For fellow enthusiasts who delve into sale catalogues to try and find something to spark their interest, how nice it is to not only find something of real interest, but to actually have to make a choice between the vehicles on offer. This particular Auction Sale will surely do just that.
From pre - war project to the rarest of Grand Tourers, DVCA are privileged to present a heart warming and wallet squeezing selection of unashamedly described “Classic” cars plus equally interesting motorcycles and automobilia.
CURRENT ENTRIES INCLUDE:
A selection of easy to run vehicles from the 50’s and 60’s from Austin and Morris, including an A35 van and a Morris 1000 pick - up. The Mini Countryman will attract interest for its rarity and condition.
Of special interest is a rare 1967 Fiat 850 Coupe by Bertone, a miniature Ferrari if you like, invoking a happy memory of watching an MCC Lands End Trial on Crackington Hill. Amongst all the mud and noise of a myriad of specially adapted vehicles, a similar Fiat Coupe, driven by Father in his Sunday Best with Mother alongside calmly knitting, cleared the hill with absolute no drama.
Prestige offerings include a beautiful 1954 Bentley R Type from a private collection, a 2006 Jaguar S Type SE Auto offering comfortable cruising for little money and an unusual 1976 Daimler Sovereign Coupe looking superb. The 1969 Rover 3.5 litre saloon is here for the gentleperson.
For the Sporting Fraternity, there is a lovely 1972 Jaguar E - Type Series III V12 Coupe and a 2003 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S with plenty of bling to make it sing !, a 1999 TVR Griffiths 500, a 1971 Volvo P1800E with an amazing history, a 1979 Ford Capri MK III 1.6 GL, a MK 1 Toyota MR2 has just arrived and a sporting estate from Subaru.
But taking centre stage is a 1965 Gordon - Keeble GK1 Sports Saloon, being number 70 of 100 built and surely the ultimate goal of every true collector and dreamer. With V8 power and a well-equipped cabin, this should prove irresistible indeed.
For pre - war pundits, a barn find 1936 Morris 10 saloon will provide a do - able winter project, a strong Ford Model A Sports Coupe should prove reliable, the 1934 Riley 9 Sport Tourer from long term ownership will offer open motoring in style, whilst the 1932 Singer Junior should be a more comfortable choice, if a tad slower.
But the pride of place in this category has to go to the gorgeous 1933 Wolseley Hornet Six Light Saloon, with six cylinder power and a lovely period coachwork and interior which hopefully, the purchaser will resist the temptation to replace with a replica Le Mans body.
Motorcycles so far entered include two Velocettes, a Valiant Veeline and a LE MK 111, plus a fabulous Triumph Tiger 110. There is also a good selection of automobilia.
