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.
