Gulf Oils Mini stands out in colourful and wide-ranging collection of older classic offerings
With Brightwells’ Modern Classics sale filtering out later cars, its Classic and Vintage sale was slightly down on the number of lots offered in the past. But it was certainly not down on choice, whether buyers wanted an early-1970s Mini 850 in cheerful (almost) Gulf Oils colours, a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow from a titled owner or a barn-find ‘flat-roof’ Humber Hawk, while a selection of pre-war dishes added further to the Leominster classic smörgåsbord.
As always, Brightwells came up with the goods and didn’t disappoint, and its next Classic and Vintage sale is on 12 July, before which is its Bicester (24 June) and Modern Classics (22 June) sales. ❚ 01568 611122 ❚ angliacarauctions.co.uk
