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.
