Re­view: SWVA

The Bank Hol­i­day week­end might have kept some pun­ters away, but bid­ding was just as fierce as ever

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

There might not have been quite as many pun­ters as nor­mally seen at SWVA’s sales, but the fact that this was the start of the Bank Hol­i­day week­end could have af­fected the plans of any­one who would have liked to have been at Poole for an in-per­son bid. While the num­bers of at­ten­dees were down, the prices be­ing of­fered weren’t, with keen bid­ding see­ing strong prices ir­re­spec­tive of a car’s age or con­di­tion. Two Bent­ley spe­cials did well, as did an ex­tremely smart Jaguar XJ- S V12 con­vert­ible and Austin A35 pick-up. Bar­gain-hunters had their work slightly cut out for them, but the small out­lay for a late Rover 820Si sa­loon was a good buy, as was a P38a Range Rover in 4.0-litre Au­to­bi­og­ra­phy guise.

SWVA’s next sale is on 28 July and it has an­nounced its first two dates for 2018 on 26 Jan­uary and 27 April.
