Summer 2017 Sale Update
With a selection of pre-war classics and mid-twentieth century restoration projects already consigned, our summer event on the 8th of June promises to be another eclectic and interesting sale indeed. Heading the line-up so far is an original right hand drive 1964 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster. Its late owner cherished the motor car for thirty six years and intended to complete the restoration project himself; now being offered with a guide of £50000 – 55000, the E-Type comes with original components and should prove to be a worthwhile and valuable project. Complementing the Jaguar are two road-going Alvis TA14s from a farm in Cornwall – one in Drophead Coupe form, the other a saloon – which both require sympathetic restoration. For the more adventurous and from the same Cornish barn is a 1964 Cadillac convertible that would benefit from some cosmetic improvement, but has been enjoyed on the roads of the South West in its current condition.
For the pre-war aficionados, we will offer amongst others a super 1927 Austin 7 Chummy with a guide of £13000 – 15000, a 1933 Austin 7 Saloon (£6000 – 7000), a 1927 Austin 20/4 Two Seat Tourer with Dickey by Mulliners (£18000 – 22000) and an ‘oily rag’ 1934 Ford Popular Model Y-Type Tudor Saloon (£3000 – 4000).
And finally, we are very pleased to include in this sale the Reay Collection of 'barn find' pre-war motor cars: a 1933 Morris Minor Two Seat Sports Tourer (in dry storage since 2012, £5000 - 6500), a 1934 Morris Minor Two Seat Sports Tourer (with a very large history, £5500 - 7000), a 1936 Morris Eight Series I Saloon Deluxe (in superbly original condition, £3000 - 4500), and a 1937 Austin 7 Pearl Cabriolet (which appeared in Midsomer Murders!, £4500 - 6000)
