Rare Re­liant one of stars at Christ­mas sale

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

THIS fab­u­lous and ul­tra rare Re­liant Scim­i­tar (left) is sure to be one of the stars twin­kling at Barons’ Christ­mas Clas­sic Sale at Sandown Park on De­cem­ber 11.

With over 90 en­tries span­ning 10 decades and rep­re­sent­ing 29 dif­fer­ent marques from Alfa Romeo, As­ton Mar­tin and Austin to Vaux­hall and Volk­swa­gen, it may not be quite an A-Z of clas­sic mo­tor­ing but it is def­i­nitely a gift for clas­sic car lovers.

The ‘star’ on the top of the Christ­mas en­try list is a mag­nif­i­cent 1921 Rolls-Royce Sil­ver Ghost with an as­ton­ish­ing 25,700 miles on the clock.

But there re­ally is some­thing for every­one and all bud­gets, from starter clas­sics and fam­ily sa­loons to stylish 1920s and 30s ma­chines and head-turn­ing sports cars.

Those look­ing for a top-con­di­tion clas­sic have plenty to choose from, as do those with a yearn­ing for a restora­tion project.

Rar­i­ties in­clude the 1965 Re­liant Scim­i­tar SE4 GT Coupe with a 2.6 Ford straight six mo­tor - one of less than 300 built - a 1968 Tri­umph TR250 in TR5 PI spec and a 1996 Mercedes-Benz SL600 V12 (above), one of just 50 sup­plied in the UK.

The sale also in­cludes a num­ber of cher­ished reg­is­tra­tions, for those who want to give a Christ­mas gift to their own car. See www.baron­sauc­tions.com.
