E-type leads the way at Barons' Yuletide sale

Published 10 December 2015

A red 1961 Jaguar E-type S1 could make £120,000 when it goes under the hammer at Barons’ Yuletide sale. The 3.8 flat-floor roadster will head to auction at Sandown Park, Esher, Surry, on 15 December.

It’s just one of the many classics going under the hammer at the sale, which includes a 1960 Bentley Continental S2 (£85,000-£105,000), a1964 E-type 3.8 S1 FHC (£65,000-£85,000), a Ferrari F355 F1 Spider (£60,000-£75,000), a 1978 Aston Martin V8 convertible (£55,000-£60,000) and a 1959 Jaguar XK150 (£40,000-£55,000).

There’s also a 1956 Rolls-Royce Hooper-bodied Empress Line (£30,000-£33,000), plus a 1980 Teal Bugatti aluminium replica (£37,000-£45,000).

Barons has five Fiat 500s in sale catalogue, with estimates ranging from £4500 to £8000. There’s also a 1973 Harvest Gold Morris Mini, which has had just two lady owners from new and covered just 20,000 miles (£4000-£6000).

There are always plenty of MGBs at any classic car auction, but Barons has a rather unique example. It’s a 2+2 four-seater roadster, one of just 18 converted in the 1980s by Bob Webb’s Befour Engineering (£7000-£9000).

If you’re after a winter project, then there’s a ‘barn find’ 1969 Triumph TR6 restoration project. This very early car was stored in a building from 1983 to this year, and comes complete with four large boxes of spares, including a brand new, still sealed, crankshaft, and an unused factory hard top. It has covered no mileage since it was MOT’d in 1982 (£4000-£5500).

Other interesting lots include a 1961 Volvo PV 544 (£6500-£8500), an imposing 1938 Packard One-Twenty Straight Eight (£14,000-£17,000), a very rare 1969 Ford Talladega 428 Cobra Jet (£35,000-£40,000) and a quirky little 1972 Trabant 601 Convertible (£4500-£6000).

This must have been a record year for the number of cars going through auction.
