SWVA’s suc­cess­ful run of sales con­tin­ued with an­other first-rate wrap-up to the year, with al­most all mo­tors be­ing sold un­der the ham­mer as pun­ters waded into arm-wav­ing bat­tle to se­cure them­selves a fresh clas­sic.

This was a typ­i­cal SWVA of­fer­ing – a smat­ter­ing of pre-war cars joined reg­u­lar clas­sics and a few later mod­els, with projects mix­ing with the de­light­fully orig­i­nal and the re­stored.

A one-owner 1987 MercedesBenz 230TE gen­er­ated par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est, while a 1972 Austin Mini 1000 au­to­matic showed just how val­ues of 1970s mod­els have picked up strongly. Other de­lights in­cluded a low-mileage Volvo 343GL and a 1947 Hum­ber Snipe that went for three times its up­per es­ti­mate.

This was a great way for SWVA to end the year – its next sale in on Fri­day, 26 Jan­uary.
