Cos­worth takes top spot

Fast Sierra makes £44k – and plenty of ac­tion in the lower ranks

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

Plenty of in­ter­est north of the bor­der – in­clud­ing pun­ters who’d trav­elled up from all over Eng­land – en­sured Mor­ris Les­lie’s sec­ond sale of the year fin­ished on a high.

Strong prices paid for a Cos­worth Es­cort and a Cos­worth Sierra (which drew the sale’s top price at just over £44,000) showed the en­dur­ing pop­u­lar­ity of these cars, while those who pref­ered some­thing more tra­di­tional were well catered for with a good and var­ied se­lec­tion of Jaguars, MGs and Tri­umphs.

There were bar­gains too, with a cou­ple of later Jaguar sa­loons off for un­der £1000 and two Audi A8s, which are en­joy­ing a small but en­thu­si­as­tic fol­low­ing, just above and be­low the grand mark.

A good sale, point­ing the way to more success dur­ing the year: Mor­ris Les­lie’s next sale is on 19 Au­gust. ❚ 01821 642574 ❚ mor­
