Two view­ing days en­sured plenty of time for wouldbe buy­ers to ac­quaint them­selves with His­torics’ of­fer­ings, and with more than 150 cars avail­able, there was some­thing for al­most ev­ery­body. Strong prices, in­clud­ing the £130,000-plus paid for the 2012 AC and £140,000-plus that bought the 1962 Jaguar E-type road­ster was ev­i­dence that not only is the mar­ket strong, but that His­torics had put the ef­fort in to mar­ket­ing the cars with an easy-touse web­site and a cat­a­logue ar­riv­ing well be­fore the sale. That trans­lated into sales of £2.885 mil­lion, and a sale rate of 76.5 per cent.

His­torics has set­tled in with big sales and its pun­ters clearly like an auc­tion that starts and ends at a rea­son­able time. Both buy­ers and sell­ers should have gone away from this sale happy.
