The best barn find buys at the Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics Restora­tion and Clas­sic Car Show.

But not all of the PC Restora­tion Show clas­sics needed tons of TLC

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

It wasn’t solely about the projects, al­though Sil­ver­stone Auc­tions’ visit to the Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics Restora­tion & Clas­sic Car Show saw a few need­ing-at­ten­tion mo­tors of­fered and find­ing en­thu­si­as­tic new homes.

But in ad­di­tion to the clas­sics that would re­quire skills, pa­tience and funds to get them go­ing un­der their own steam again, there was a good se­lec­tion of cars at the NEC event for the punter who sim­ply wanted to jump in and drive away.

Among th­ese was lovely Fer­rari 412i, one of the nicest in an auc­tion for a long time. Then there was a re­stored Ford Es­cort RS2000 Cus­tom and for those who like their cars big, a 1959 Cadil­lac sa­loon in six-light form.

Held just a week af­ter Sil­ver­stone’s Race Retro sale the re­sults were a good re­ward for the clearly hard-work­ing team: 75% of cars were sold, mak­ing a to­tal of £1.5 mil­lion. The busy auc­tion house’s next sale is back on its home turf on 21 May at Sil­ver­stone Cir­cuit, Northants. 01926 691141 www.sil­ver­stoneauc­
