The NEC show stars that you can buy
Away from the delivery-mileage Fords and MGs there are plenty of auction deals to look out for
Silverstone Auctions’ last sale of the year features plenty of exciting lots and, thanks to being held at the NEC Classic Motor Show, should see plenty of fevered bidding. Its last NEC sale, held at the Practical Classics Show, saw some very strong prices and there’s every likelihood that will be repeated, especially with the inclusion of several very low-mileage performance Fords, a one-lady owner Jaguar E-type Roadster and a seldom-seen BMW 1600 Cabriolet, plus an 837-mile Escort Cosworth (This Week, p4).
Held over two days it’s worth checking to see when ‘your’ car comes under the hammer, and for a first-rate atmosphere this is one auction that’s hard to beat for excitement.
