QUAL­ITY IF NOT QUAN­TITY

There were fewer lots than in other sales, but the bar was set high

Af­ter a highly suc­cess­ful 2015 SWVA got 2016’s cal­en­dar firmly un­der­way with a stun­ningly good se­lec­tion of mo­tors. While not of­fer­ing the num­ber of lots that’s seem­ingly com­pul­sory th­ese days, what it lacked in num­bers was com­pen­sated for by di­ver­sity.

The stun­ning-or­der Ford Sierra RS Cos­worth was a star among per­for­mance Fords and auc­tion watch­ers will be look­ing to see if any oth­ers of­fered this year come as close in terms of con­di­tion.

If an RS Ford wasn’t the choice of all SWVA’s pun­ters, sal­va­tion came in the form of other mo­tors, in­clud­ing the lovely Bris­tol 403, fab­u­lously orig­i­nal Lan­cia Au­gusta Belna and the easy-on-the­wal­let DAF 33. All were stars in their own right, and they got SWVA off to a fine start. Its next sale is on 29 April.
