One-owner Ford Granada heads to auction

Published 13 February 2017

A one-owner 1985 Ford Granada is set to go under the hammer. The meticulously maintained Ghia 2.8i could make up to £6000 at Barons sale on 28 February.

Described by the vendor as being in first class condition all round, the Granada has always been garaged. It comes with almost all of the old MoT test certificates, verifying the mileage of 114,000. This Ford has also been used as a show car.

Also in the sale is a headline-grabbing 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190SL restoration project, which is expected to go for between £37,000 and £45,000.

This car was purchased as a restoration project in the mid-1970s, but very little work was carried out before it was put into dry storage, where it has remained untouched for around 40 years. The engine has been started every so often, and it is said to start and run well.

Barons SL (1)

There's plenty of pre-sale interest in this 1956 Mercedes-Benz 190SL restoration project.

Other interesting lots include a 1992 Porsche 968 Cabriolet (£15,000-£18,000) and several more Mercedes, including a 2003 SL 350 (£13,000-£16,000).

If Italian cars are your thing then the 1972 and 1996 Alfa Romeo Spiders (£12,000-£14,000 and £3000-£4000, respectively) are worth a look. A 1972 Alfa Romeo Berlina 2000 has been part of a private collection in Italy for the past 25 years and kept in a heated, dry garage. It is expected to fetch between £8000 and £10,000.

There’s also a 1977 AutoBianchi Giardinetta - essentially an estate version of the Fiat 500. Rarely used in the past 30 years, the interior is in original condition (£6000-£7000).  

British sporting cars are well represented. There’s a 1998 Aston Martin DB7 Volante (£23,000-£27,000) and 2000 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage (£19,000-£22,000), a pair of 1973 Triumph TR6s and two XKR Jaguars.
