Review – Baron’s
Good customer feedback from Baron’s Classic Winter Warmer
Barons’ first sale of the year saw new man on the rostrum, Duncan Brown, hammer away a 1967 Fiat Dino Spider for £83,600, more than £20,000 over its upper estimate, while a 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190SL project made a healthy £47,300, slightly above its £45,000 upper estimate.
A pair of Aston Martins – a 1998 DB7 Volante and a 2000 Vantage, sold for £22,550 and £20,900 respectively, while a 1999 Porsche 911 Carrera made £6600.
Saloons did well, with a Ford Granada MkII in range-topping 2.8i Ghia guise making £3850, while just a fraction more – £125, in fact – bought a 1994 Daimler Six in short-wheelbase form.
‘ We’re really happy with how it went – it was a really great start to 2017,’ said manger Tim Gascoigne. ‘Our new auctioneer, Duncan Brown, did very well and we’ve received some great feedback from customers. The Dino Spider did well because it was a really interesting car in great condition,’ manger Tim Gascoigne said.
Barons’ Spring Classic is on 22 April at Sandown Park.
