Auctions: Charterhouse heads back to Bath & West Showground
Plenty of traditional British classics as Charterhouse returns to its old stomping ground
Charterhouse is returning to its traditional Royal Bath and West Showground venue and its selection of cars is likely to prove popular with punters at the accompanying classic car show. The Dorset-based auctioneer repeatedly comes up with the goods and this sale fits the bill perfectly for buyers hunting for a bargain.
A 1953 Jaguar XK120 Roadster that comes fresh from 64 years in one family’s ownership could be a seriously good buy but with the unusual (a 1920s Renault) alongside the traditional (a Ford Cortina MkI), there should be something for everybody. Those who like their cars British, luxurious and with the de rigeur wood and leather interior are in for a treat, with a Vanden Plas 4-litre R alongside a Rover 3.5 Coupé, Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Bentley R-type.
And for those craving the limelight, the 1964 Austin A35 van used in the film Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit comes with a £15,000-20,000 estimate.
