Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - ❚ Nl www.clwydauc­

A Welsh auc­tion house that has re-en­tered the clas­sic mar­ket after an ab­sence of more than 20 years is of­fer­ing seven restora­tion projects, in­clud­ing a 1947 Rover 10, on the in­struc­tions of the High Court.

They are among sev­eral lots be­ing sold by Cl­wyd Car Auc­tions in Dee­side next Monday (17 Oc­to­ber) without re­serve. The projects, from the same seized col­lec­tion, in­clude a 1963 Hum­ber Hawk, 1981 Porsche 944, and three Austins – an A30, A35 and Som­er­set. There is also a 1990 Mini City E, said to be in good or­der, but not MoT tested for two years.

The fam­ily-owned Clywd Auc­tion Cen­tre reg­u­larly held clas­sic auc­tions in the late 1980s and early 1990s. ‘We’d al­ways been in­ter­ested in clas­sics, but with­drew from that sec­tor in 1990s fol­low­ing a slump in the mar­ket. How­ever, we’re back and we an­tic­i­pate our next sale will have 80 to 100 en­tries.’ says spokesman Des Lewis.
