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.
