Trade whispers last year about Rootes Group cars be­ing un­der­val­ued were dealt a se­ri­ous blow by ACA’s 1965 Singer Vogue es­tate. Many in the pre-sale pe­riod – who un­doubt­edly hadn’t seen the car – reck­oned that the £8000-10,000 es­ti­mate was op­ti­mistic to say the least. How wrong they were.

Owned by the ven­dor (who him­self bought the car from its first owner) since 2001, the car’s restora­tion was thor­ough, but not in a glitzy, over-the-top way. Rather, it showed the car off as it would have looked when it left the fac­tory. The body­work was lovely, with first-class panel fit and beau­ti­ful paint, and the el­e­gant in­te­rior was a sight to behold.

Of­fered late in the day, pun­ters clearly weren’t de­terred by the ex­tended wait, and for one de­ter­mined punter that patience was re­warded, al­though at a price well be­yond the up­per es­ti­mate.
