Af­ford­able lux­ury at Bices­ter

Buy­ers spoilt for choice in a sale where even rar­i­ties ducked be­low £100k

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

Brightwells’ off-site sale at Bices­ter Her­itage mixed clas­sic pur­chas­ing with the sur­round­ings of the Ox­ford­shire clas­sic mo­tor­ing and avi­a­tion hub. With fewer than 70 lots this was a sen­si­bly-sized sale with no lots hid­den away as can of­ten hap­pen with mega-sales. Plenty of de­lights, in­clud­ing sev­eral pre-war mo­tors added to the grandeur of the for­mer WW2 RAF hanger that served as the sale’s head­quar­ters, and the at­mos­phere was one of gen­uinely en­thu­si­as­tic buy­ers rather than un­car­ing in­vestors. All cars sold came in un­der the £100,000 mark and sev­eral were un­der £10,000, mak­ing this a well-bal­anced sale for those without trust fund-backed pur­chas­ing power.

Brightwells’ next Bices­ter sale is on 24 June, dur­ing the Fly­wheel Fes­ti­val.
