1966 Mini Cooper 1275S Makes £31,000 at Historics

Published 03 September 2015
The 1966 Morris Mini Cooper 1275S  was one of 119 classic cars in the sale dating from 1929. Pending after sale deals, the sale ratio was 69% on the day.
Early Porsche 911s remainds on the pace with a professional nut and bolt rebuild, a pristine white 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Sport Targa sold over its top estimate at £103,000. This was one of five Porsches on sale, all bar one of which found a new home.
Trimph TRs also remain on the boil with a 1968 Triumph TR5 fitted with the rare Surrey hardtop soaring above estimate to £37,000, supported by a 1972 Triumph TR6 settling at £15,000 whilst a brace of Triumph Stags were hammered down at strong mid-estimate prices.
Jaguar XK150 Coupe 1960
A beautifully elegant 1960 Jaguar XK150 made £62,000.
Alfa Romeo SZ 1990
A rare 1990 Alfa Romeo SZ sold for £26,000. An ultra-rare 1961 Alfa Romeo Formula One single seater with FIA papers sold for £60,000 and the newest car amongst the consignments, a 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider, made £70,000 and might not drop any lower, representing a reasonable 9 year old investment for its new owner.
Iso Fidia 1960
The 1973 Iso Fidia that had languished in a barn since the mid 1980s and needed very expensive restoration changed hands for a £6,250.
A 1926 Talbot 10/23 reached its top estimate at £11,000, followed by a 1932 Wolseley Hornet Special at £24,000, and a charming nut and bolt restoration 1937 MG VA going for its top estimate of £27,500.
Jaguar SS Saloon 1937
The 1937 SS Jaguar Saloon displayed in a Museum in Spain for 12 years sold for £40,000.
Toyota HJ47 Pick Up 1982
Finally, starting to catch up with Toyota FJ prices in the USA, a 1982 Toyota HJ47 pick-up sold to a Toyota dealer for £14,500 (£15,950 inc), and may join Toyota's own historic fleet at future events.
Historics is now welcoming consignments for its next auction at Brooklands on November 28th
