The H and H Classic Car Auction took place at The Pavilion Gardens, Buxton on the 28th November 2018. We thought we would share with you some of the classic vehicles that were sold on the day. Full details can be found on the auctioneer’s website.
A 1975 Volkswagen Beetle 1200 that had an estimated price of £2,500 to £3,500 was actually sold for £2,475. This nice looking car had had new carpets fitted and the seats had been re-trimmed.
How about a green 1966 Morris Mini Minor that had an estimated price of £3,000 to £4,000 but was actually sold for well above that figure at £6,300. This lovely car had been in family ownership since way back in 1973 and it had a very low mileage for its age at 65,146.
A great looking red 1967 MG Midget 1275 had an estimated sale price of £4,500 to £5,500 and was sold for £5,287.50. This wonderful 2 seater open top sports car has been restored in 1999 and has banjo steering wheel and fantastic looking wire wheels.
A delightful pale green 1957 Morris Minor 1000 Convertible had an estimated sale price of £3,000 to £4,000 but only achieved a sale price of £2,137.50. Apparently, it is said that this vehicle has only had two previous owners. It will no doubt look the part in the summer months with its roof down.
A 1964 Daimler V8-250 had an estimated sale price of £8,000 to £10,000 but achieved a higher sale price of £12,150. This is a low mileage vehicle for its age at 70,361. It has been in its current ownership since way back in 1980. This classic salon car is said to have been garaged.
How about a reddish 1981 Triumph Spitfire 1500 that had an estimated sale price of £8,000 to £10,000 that was actually sold for £10,800. For its age, it has a low mileage of 76,500. It has lovely looking wire wheels and has been restored. This open topped two seater sports car will look wonderful in the warm summer months especially with the top down.
Going back in time, a 1926 Talbot 10/23 Tourer had an estimated sale price of £8,000 to £10,000 but was eventually sold for £9,337.50. It has had a lot of restoration work and its 1.1 litre engine is capable of a top speed of 55 mph. What a delightful looking car.
If you fancied owning a luxury car but didn’t have a huge sum of money then a 1986 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit had an estimated sale price of £3,000 to £4,000 but was actually sold for £5,175. This is a low mileage vehicle with only 62,131 recorded miles. It has been in the same ownership since 2007.
