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

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Classic Motor Show 2017 -

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.
