Blackborough House, a few miles from Honiton in Devon, is the location of an interesting breakers’ yard that has many pieces including classic cars that are in need of restoration as well as many car parts. The house has already been sold to a property developer but the contents of the breakers’ yard are to be auctioned this coming Saturday 17th September 2016.
For instance, there is a 1955 Morris Minor 2 door that has been stored at the yard since 2001 that needs restoring although it had a new gearbox and engine fitted in the 1980s.
If you are interested in lorries, there is a vintage circa 1930 Dennis Lorry that needs to be fully restored. Alternatively, or as well as, you may be attracted to a Morris A60 pick-up built in 1967. That could fetch between £5,000 to £6,000. There is a Bedford J-Type Breakdown lorry manufactured in 1966. Apparently, it is in good running order. This is estimated to realize £4,000 to £6,000.
What about a Standard Fordson Tractor that dates back to the 1940s that needs some restoration work carrying out to it.
If you are interested in antique motorbikes then there is plenty of choice. For instance, a 1958 Panther Motorcycle fitted with a 197cc engine. How about a 1951 AJ5 350 that has been owned by one family from when it was new. There is a Royal Enfield Girder fork Type motorbike available to buy.
You may be interested in a 1938 Austin B16 7 saloon car that has an 885 cc engine and a blue and black interior. The estimated sale price is £5,000 to £6,000.
There is a Hillman Minx Series 1 dating back to 1956 with a 1390cc engine. It has been partly restored.
There is an Austin 7 Nippy in black and cream dating back to 1935 that could be sold for £8,000 to £10,000.
As you can see, if you have an interest in classic motor vehicles then you might want to get along to the auction.
