Winter 2021 Classic Car Auction November 20, 2021
Manor Park Auctions held its Winter 2021 Classic Car Auction on November 20 and it featured a couple of American vehicles. These included a rather handsome 1967 Chrysler Newport Convertible which was imported from California six years ago and which had undergone a bare metal respray, had its bumpers rechromed and had a new fully operating power hood fitted. It was described as still having its original interior and its original 383cu in V8 motor and came with a binder full of paperwork, including its original US title. Despite all this, sadly it didn’t find a buyer.
If something a bit smaller appealed, then the 1958 Austin Nash Metropolitan Series III which was offered up for auction would have been just the ticket! Unusually, this was a right-hand drive, original UK-built, UK market car and was offered with its original RF60 buff logbook and was still wearing its original issue registration number. It also came with the original workshop manual and spares manual and featured the correct interior and working valve radio.
Recent work included new leaf springs and gear change bushes and there were bills on file for circa £4300 since 2017, including a bill on file for £1460 in 2021 for bodywork repairs. Selling for £8400, this miniature, home-built Yank will offer its new owner a cheap and cheerful entry to classic American motoring!
Also going under the hammer was this large Ford main dealer illuminated showroom sign which hammered at £1232.
