60-CAR STASH FOR SALE
One man’s amazing collection of British classic cars to go under the hammer from next month
One man’s lifetime collection of more than 60 British classics is being auctioned from next month.
Anglia Car Auctions (ACA) is selling the Norfolk-based collection following the death of its owner, with the first batch of cars going under the hammer on 4 November.
The treasure trove predominantly features Jaguars, Morrises and MGs, along with a variety of motorcycles and a large haul of classic car parts.
The first cars to be sold from the collection – which are all being auctioned as separate lots – include a 1934 Morris 10/6 Cunard Special, a 1959 Austin-Healey 100/6, a 1929 Morris Cowley saloon and a selection of MGs.
ACA proprietor, Lyn George, says: ‘The wife, son and daughter of the owner of the vehicles need the space. There are so many cars that we had to move cars out of the way to see what was in there. We spent hours pulling them out.’
One man’s collection of 60 classic British cars is to be sold at two Anglia Car Auctions sales. The Norfolk-based collection is being sold following the death of its owner. The treasure trove predominantly features Jaguars, Morrises and MGs, along with a variety of motorcycles and stationary engines.
ACA will offer a 1934 Morris 10/6 Cunard Special, a 1959 Austin Healey 100/6, a 1929 Morris Cowley saloon, an MG TD and TF1500, a 1974 MGB V8, a Rover V8-engined 1974 Lotus Elite and an aluminium SS100 recreation that was built using a donor 1950 RHD XK120 Roadster in its next sale on 4 November.
The rest of the collection, featuring a selection of MGBs, will be in ACA’s following sale – date to be confirmed.
The collection features cars in different conditions, however most would be described as in barn find condition. The majority are complete, but haven’t moved in years.
ACA proprietor, Lyn George, says: ‘The wife, son, and daughter of the owner of the vehicles need the space. There are so many cars that we had to move cars out of the way to see what was in there. We spent hours dragging and pulling them out.
‘They’re all being sold singularly. 59 of the lots will be sold with no reserve. The one exception is the Jaguar SS100 Evocation on XK120 chassis – that will have an estimate of £55-75,000.’
Lots of pre-war cars to choose from, but the red Lotus Elite has a Rover V8 engine.
Sad-looking Alvis will need a lot of work.
Striking colour for ‘Bullnose’ Morris.
Jag XK will need a new wing – at least!
MG TD looks pretty solid and complete.
