Were the clas­sic car hunters re­ally go­ing to stay away from SWVA’s lat­est sale? Of course not…

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

With just 45 min­utes to go be­fore the 11am kick-off, SWVA looked qui­eter than it had at its re­cent clas­sic sales. Just 20 min­utes later, the sales hall was back to the usual jam­packed, punter-rammed form we be­came ac­cus­tomed to last year.

And that’s hardly sur­pris­ing, con­sid­er­ing the cars that were on of­fer. There was some­thing for al­most any would-be buyer, with the usual Jaguars and MGs be­ing joined by a de­light­fully orig­i­nal Bent­ley MkVI, Austin Mini Cooper S and a Ford Es­cort RS1600 MkI.

A shabby Bent­ley Mul­sanne and sev­eral Mor­ris Mi­nors – whose prices re­flected no slow­ing of buyer in­ter­est – were more af­ford­able.

SWVA’s next sale will take place on 28 April. 01202 745466
