Bonny Brits steal the show

Stun­ning heart­land Bri­tish clas­sics fly off the rostrum at mid-week sale

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

A13,000-mile 1970 Jaguar E-type took the top price ac­co­lade at Brightwells’ sum­mer sale. The three­owner Opales­cent Blue FHC made a pre­mium-in­clu­sive £59,950, closely fol­lowed by a very tidy Mercedes-Benz 250 SL at £59,400. Scal­ing down the value tree a lit­tle, a 1979 AC 3000ME in need of paint was still good value at £24,200, while for the use-ratherthan-show owner, a slightly scruffy 1966 Alvis TF21 au­to­matic raised a com­mend­able £25,300.

There was plenty to like, in­clud­ing a 1950 Land Rover 80” (£20,350), a well-pre­sented Tri­umph 2500S sa­loon (£7150) and a 1972 Peu­geot 504 coupé which, at £6600, was ex­cel­lent value. While there were some non-sell­ing sur­prises, this was a pleas­ing mid-week sale nev­er­the­less.

Brightwells’ next clas­sic and vin­tage sale is on 27 Septem­ber.
