E-type takes £51.7k top spot

Good money in Con­nois­seur sale

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

Seven with­drawals from its Bri­tish Con­nois­seurs’ Clas­sic Car Collection sale would have been frus­trat­ing for the Barons team, but with 40 cars still on of­fer there re­mained hope for some rea­son­able re­sults. And by sale end a well-pre­sented 1970 Jaguar E-type Coupé took top price ac­co­lade at a cred­i­ble £51,700, just ahead of a 1964 Jensen CV8 that was ham­mered away for £48,950. Most of the cars sold pulled five-fig­ure sums, in­clud­ing a re­stored 1974 Ford Capri in JPS lim­ited edi­tion guise at £20,950 and a 1994 MG RV8 at £18,150. This was a fair sale, but one that promised much more than it de­liv­ered.
