clywd is back in the market
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.
