Report: Barons 17th December 2013

Published 23 December 2013

A first generation pre-Airflow 1964 Lotus Cortina proved to be the star of the day at Barons 17th December auction at Sandown Park, Esher, eventually selling to a New Zealand telephone bidder for £48,172, inclusive.
 
Important post-sale deals included £36,000 inclusive for the 1965 Jaguar E-Type 4.2 roadster restoration project, proving that the early pre-sale estimate had been wildly optimistic. (This had later been brought down to a more sensible level.)

A 1965 Rolls-Royce Cloud III was also moved on post sale for a very respectable £30,000. While a one owner, low mileage TR6 eventually sold for £14,572 inclusive after being bid to £12,000 under the hammer. Much negotiation was required with the car’s only owner but a deal was eventually done.

A beautiful TR250 was also sold at £19,612, again after a provisional bid, while a LHD, Alfa 1600GT Junior went for  £12,332 and a 2.0 Spider achieved £8.412.
 
A Bentley TI with LPG conversion in Ming blue was excellent value at £10,294.
 
Other notable prices included  £7,292 achieved for the S2 XJ6L, £6,508 for a 1958 ‘barn find’ Jaguar 3.4SE saloon, £17,932 for a Series Two, 2+2 E-type in need of a lot of cosmetic attention and £4,380 paid for a 1979 Mercedes 350SEL in need of a full repaint. And 'WNR 30S' - the last Mini ever to take part in an international WRC rally - sold for £12,332.

All prices quoted above include premium and VAT.
 
Barons’ first event for 2014 is the Classic Winter Warmer on the 24th - 25th February at the Esher Hall,  Sandown Park, where Barons will be commencing its 16th year of residence.
