Where can I sell a collection of classic cars?

I am writing for your advice as I don't know where to turn, or how to start. My father passed away leaving quite a few old cars in a shed. They include two SAAB 96s, one Morris Minor Traveller, one Austin Half Ton Van, one Austin A55 Light Van, two Volvo 121 Estates, one Volvo 145 Estate, one Volvo 1800E Coupe and one Ford Anglia Van. They are not in good condition. Please could you advise me on the best course of action for me to take to achieve the maximum value and potential for these cars? I think two of the number plates may also be of value too.

Your best bet is a classic car auction company: www.historics.co.uk ; www.barons-auctions.com ; www.classic-auctions.com. The number plates are of no value if the cars are not taxed and MoTd - they cannot be transferred.
