Historics At Brooklands Auction Of Classic Vehicles

The above auction took place on the 8th July 2017. Below we highlight some of the classic cars that were sold on the day. Full details can be found on the historicks.co.uk website.

A classic 1969 MG Midget Mark 111 in red came up for sale and achieved a price of £3,920. It had extremely low mileage with only 17,748 miles showing on the odometer. The owner at the time of the auction had to sell the classic little sports car due to ill health which is most unfortunate. The bodywork is in need of some attention as are some of the windows on the soft top. It has a 1,275cc engine. It also comes with a hardtop.

Some Ford cars have become sought after classic vehicles.

Ford built some wonderful cars that turned into classics

There is something rather special about a classic E-Type Jaguar. One was sold at the above auction for £75,040. It was built in 1966 and is a Series 1 Fixedhead Coupe. The 4.2 litre engine was capable of powering this vehicle to around 150 mph. Restoration work was undertaken between 2007 and 2011 and it is in great condition. It has 67,900 miles on the clock.

A 1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider 750D model that had in excess of £15,000 of restoration work carried out on it over the last year was sold for £55,000. It still had the original owners handbook. It certainly sounds like the new owner has acquired an extremely desirable classic car.

A 1966 Ford Lotus Cortina Mk 1 with over 87,000 miles on the clock achieved a sale price of £44,240. This white car with green stripes has a 1,558cc engine and was fully restored back in the early 80’s. Further refurbishment work was carried out by the present owner who has had the vehicle for in the region of three years.

Let us hope that the above vehicles have suitable classic car insurance in place to provide protection in the event of say being involved in a road traffic accident or should the cars be stolen.
