The great advantage of instructing  DVCA to help sell your vintage vehicle is that their efforts do not stop if a sale is not achieved on the day of the auction. The market is a fickle element. All manner of things can prevent a bidder from making a timely bid on the day and often the situation is reversed sometime after the event. Due to the fact that DVCA not only exudes unbridled enthusiasm for the Vintage and Classic vehicles they handle, but they also own their own premises in which unsold vehicles can remain on display for prospective purchasers to consider at a more leisurely pace. There is thus no need for a prospective purchaser to give up on a missed purchase and neither is there any need for a Vendor to be persuaded by others in an attempt to gain instructions by denigrating our efforts, especially when they may lack similar facilities to recover from a failure of their own.

Our Sale on September 7th auction did produce successful results and in some cases surprisingly good.

Motorcycle enthusiasts should visit our Private Treaty Section for a spectacular selection of bikes, some of which arrived too late to have a real chance on Sale Day. The older ones seemed most attractive as both a 1951 Sunbeam S8 and a 1954 BSA Bantam found new homes.

The Motor Car Section saw a rare 1987 Renault Alpine GTA V6 sell at £18,700, a beautifully restored Rover P4 made a well- deserved £9,900 and a proper 1942 Willys Jeep was contested to £24,200. Little Gems included a lovely 1967 Wolseley Hornet Mk2 at £6050 and a lesser cousin Riley Elf will no doubt be refreshed by its buyer at £2750.

As stated earlier, the post auction Private Treaty Sales have already included a 1983 Ford Escort Cabriolet and a challenging Rolls-Royce 20/25 project. More available in this section so do please visit our website at www.dvca.co.uk
