Gordon Willey collection heads to auction

Published 18 September 2015

A 12-strong collection of classics owned by enthusiast Gordon Willey will be sold by Bonhams at two auctions in December.

The multi-million pound collection, which includes seven Bentleys and several rare pre-war motor cars, will go under the hammer at the Bond Street sale on 6 December and the Hendon RAF Museum on 10 December.

One of the highlights of the sale will be the ex-Billy Cotton 1938 Frazer-Nash BMW 328 Roadster (pictured below), estimated at £550,000-£650,000. Meanwhile, a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 Sports Saloon carries an estimate of £400,000-£500,000.

Malcolm Barber, Bonhams co-chairman, said, ‘This incredible collection is offered by retired businessman, Mr. Gordon Willey. An avid enthusiast with a penchant for pre-war classics, the collection features a variety of motor cars from great British marques, Bentley, Aston Martin, Frazer Nash and Invicta.’
