HIS­TORICS’ COVER-ALL

World War I to nearly new ( but def­i­nitely ‘clas­sic’) – and ev­ery­thing else in be­tween

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

Abumper of­fer­ing from His­torics at Brook­lands sees ev­ery­thing from a 1918 Bianchi to a 2012 AC com­pet­ing for pun­ters’ cash at the Sur­rey mu­seum, and the 130 or so lots (at the time of go­ing to press) in­clude all points in be­tween. So, you can expect some tra­di­tional clas­sics, in­clud­ing Jaguar E-types and XJ- Ss, as well as a typ­i­cally large Mercedes-Benz line-up and nu­mer­ous Porsches, the ma­jor­ity of which are 911s. From the Vin­tage era the 1918 Bianchi and a 1925 Daim­ler laun­daulette of­fer more un­usual mo­tor­ing, the lat­ter hav­ing had its orig­i­nal en­gine re­placed by a Tri­umph 2.5-litre six. A pair of Con­sul Capris and a Con­sul Clas­sic are wel­come ad­di­tions, as is a Morris Mini Cooper S with the rarely seen 970cc en­gine.

Two view­ing days, on the Thurs­day and Fri­day be­fore the sale, should ac­com­mo­date the needs of most would-be bid­ders. ■ 01753 639170, www.his­torics.co.uk, list­ings p40
