Re­view: Barons

Flat-feel­ing sale nev­er­the­less de­liv­ered the goods with some great buys

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

There was a marked con­trast be­tween Barons’ sale and SWVA’s of the pre­vi­ous day. Barons of­fered about the same num­ber of cars, but the num­ber of pun­ters in the first two hours af­ter the doors opened was noth­ing to write home about and the gen­er­ally flat at­mos­phere was far from in­spir­ing.

Nev­er­the­less the sale’s star lot, the 1972 Stutz Black­hawk, soared way above its £22,000 up­per es­ti­mate to a perky £34,650, ac­com­pa­nied by a pair of Ford Mus­tang notch­backs (1966 and 1967 mod­els).

Also off to a new home was a 1971 BL Mini Cooper (£22,500), while more af­ford­able Mini mo­tor­ing was of­fered by a lovely-or­der 1996 Sprite that was bought well for £6820. 02380 668413 barons-auc­
