Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

There’s al­ways an in­ter­est in the colour­ful Swiss Post-liv­er­ied model Volk­swa­gen Bee­tles, and the Te­kno ex­am­ple in Lacy Scott & Knight’s 18 Fe­bru­ary auc­tion was clearly no ex­cep­tion. The No.819 ‘PTT’ yel­low and black­bod­ied sa­loon with chrome hubs and white walled tyres, cream in­te­rior and in the orig­i­nal card box, sold for a ham­mer price of £360 above es­ti­mates of £200-300. The at­trac­tion of James Bond-re­lated As­ton Martin DB5 models con­tin­ues to draw big prices and the Corgi Toys No.270 model (with larger body than the 261) in the orig­i­nal plas­tic vac-formed bub­ble pack­ag­ing found a buyer at just un­der top es­ti­mate at £420. A Ger­man OROBR tin­plate and clock­work limou­sine reached top es­ti­mate at £400, while the cute Vic­tory In­dus­tries 1:18 scale Austin Cam­bridge fea­tured in our 8 Fe­bru­ary is­sue, came in mid-es­ti­mate at £75. www.lskauc­tion­cen­tre.co.uk
