THE WEEK IN DEALS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING - RICHARD BAR­NETT’S WEEK OF LOOK­ING AT THE MAR­KET

MON­DAY

Is Oc­to­ber be­com­ing the new Au­gust when it comes to the auc­tion cal­en­dar? Septem­ber was rammed with sales and Oc­to­ber used to be, so I’m won­der­ing, look­ing through the cal­en­dar, if auc­tion­eers know some­thing I don’t when it comes to hold­ing a sale. It’s a re­flec­tion of how busy auc­tions are be­com­ing – they aren’t just the pre­serve of the trade any more.

WED­NES­DAY

An early break­fast so there’s time to skim through the CCW clas­si­fieds. Pi­o­neer Au­to­mo­biles is of­fer­ing a 1961 Stan­dard Van­guard Lux­ury Six that’s de­scribed as ‘nicely pre­sented’. Look­ing good, it’s priced at £7950. This week’s buy­ing guide sums it up – they are tremen­dous value for money. The wider mar­ket’s loss is def­i­nitely your gain – they’re so much cheaper than a Ford

Zo­diac.

THURS­DAY

Caught up with Barons’ Tony Cavell about the auc­tion house’s 20th an­niver­sary. He’s been with the com­pany since it started, the con­ver­sa­tion in­evitably turns to val­ues, and it’s in­ter­est­ing to see how, in some cases) es­ti­mates sim­ply haven’t changed all that much since the late 1990s. Just shows how sta­ble the mar­ket is.
