Top 10: Stondon Museum auction lots
The final collection of vehicles from the recently closed Stondon Motor Museum goes under the hammer on Wednesday, July 10th, at Brightwells of Herefordshire. And with every vehicle being offered for sale with no reserve, there are more than 130 chances to grab a potential bargain.
It’s not often that a no-reserve classic vehicle auction is held, and a large turnout is expected at this one. Not every vehicle is immaculate (that was part of the charm of the museum), and all have been off the road for many years; but there are still some seriously tempting lots here. To find out more and to see what else is available, go to www.brightwells.com.

When was the last time you saw a first-generation VW Derby? Exactly. That’s how rare these pretty little Polo-derived saloons have become, despite being a popular buy when new. This particular car is a 1098cc LS model that’s been off the road since 1999 but was a regular concours entrant (and occasional winner) during the ’90s. The indicated mileage of just 47,000 may well be correct. Surely this all-original Derby deserves to hit the road once again?
