Not a real one. A very sophisticated child’s car with a front mounted 110cc four-stroke engine and a three-speed dog clutch transmission. Adjustable pedals mean anyone can drive it from a 10-year-old child to a tall adult. Estimated at £10,000 to £14,000.

Studebaker Commander 1955 F34 Historics

Lot 117 1955 Studebaker Commander

This very interesting car lost the stunning Raymond Lowey twin grille look of the 1953-54 models and is a ‘post’ saloon rather than a coupe. But it’s in nice shape, couldn’t find any rust, and under the hood sits a 1994 Ford V8 engine with 5-speed manual transmission. ‘No Reserve’, which means estimated at below £10,000.

Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint 1966 F34 Historics

A beautiful RHD car in nice, apparently rust-free condition. Only two owners and a comprehensive history file to back up its 72,99 miles recorded. Estimated at £18,000 to £24,000.

Lot 145 1933 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Park Ward Touring Saloon 

An outstanding car. The fastidious owner spent £45,000on a rebuild of its 3,669cc six cylinder overhead valve engine. You are unlikely to find a better 20/25. Estimated at £48,000 to £56,000.
