The Bonhams MPH November Auction of classic cars took place on the 26th November 2019 in Bicester. Some of you who have an interest in classic cars may have got along to the event but for those of you who did not manage to get their we thought we would mention a few of the vehicles that were sold on the day.
Porsche lovers will be interested to read that a 1968 Porsche 911 SWB was sold for £59,166 including the premium. The bodywork is in a lovely Polo Red. It is said to have 100 miles on the clock so is a very low mileage. It has been subject to restoration that included a respray and the gearbox and engine being attended to. The black leather interior was renewed.
A 1962 AC Greyhound Bristol was sold for £60,187 to include the premium. This is a delightful looking two-seater sports car that would attract the attention of any passers by. It was restored 20 years ago and has had the Bristol 2.2 litre inline six 125bhp engine rebuilt. It was resprayed this year in Aston Martin Dunhill Silver. It has a wooden dashboard and has 61,000 miles on the clock.
A 1961 Mercedes-Benz 190SL was sold for £57,375 including the premium. It is left hand drive and has a hardtop. It has been subject to restoration some time ago so needs some work doing to it. It sounds like this could be an interesting project for someone who loves Mercedes-Benz.
Something a little different – a 1966 Volkswagen Type 2 Double Cab Pick Up was sold for £42,750 including the premium. It has red/black bodywork. It has been fully restored at a cost of around £120,000. It really does look the part that anyone with a love of classic vehicles would be proud to own.
A 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series 11 2+2 Coupe was sold for £32,062 to include the premium. It has been converted from left-hand to right-hand drive. It is said to have 39,444 miles on the clock. It really does look lovely with red bodywork and it also has wire wheels and a black interior with a wooden steering wheel.
