First Cheer: despite the gloom and despondency around us, DVCA are putting together another exciting sale of Vintage and Classic Vehicles for their next sale on Thursday 24th November.

Second Cheer: we may be changing government officials more regularly than our clothing, but the stalwart crew at DVCA really do keep calm and carry on despite Covid and electricity bills, they remain resolute to produce another full and informative catalogue.

Third Cheer: for the friendly welcome on offer to those who telephone or drop in to their enclave in rural Stalbridge. You can admire the range of classic vehicles currently entered for the next sale or discuss your own prospective entry.

Those enthusiasts unable to visit are recommended to view the website and follow the new entries as they arrive on the auction house’s website:


These include:

A highly useable 1948 Austin 16 De Luxe Saloon plus another for restoration

A dream of a 1952 Bentley Special carefully created by a chartered motor engineer, plus a 2003 Arnage R Saloon.

A rare 1972 BMW 2002 which can be run road tax free.

A 1956 Ford Consul Mk I, with a bench seat for cosying up to nicer passengers.

A choice of a 1977 Series III Land Rover or a 1992 Range Rover Vogue for rural rambles.

Pre-war Morris lovers will appreciate the 1933 Minor Two Seat Tourer and the 1931 C.M.S Two Seat Tourer with the overhead cam engine that can surprise the MG M types.  If a post–war Morris is preferred, look at the enhanced 1966 Traveller.

The 1965 Renault Caravelle was squeezed in too late for the last sale but with hard and soft tops and seating for four it should find a new home on 24th.

The 1933 Lynx Tourer will offer open air motoring, as will the 1927 Lea Francis M Type powered by the Meadows engine.

A Rolls-Royce selection will appeal to those still left with a little dignity in their motoring habits. DVCA will offer a 1954 Silver Dawn, a 1935 20/25 and 1947 Silver Wraith, some needing more work than others but remain assured upmarket projects for those who can afford to heat their winter workshops.


So lots of reasons to keep cheerful and look forward to the Spring of 2023, at least for a classic motor car enthusiast, thanks to Dorset’s own DVCA
