Auction results: Barons Spring Classic 21 April

Published 26 April 2018

A 1964 Morris Mini Cooper S solf for just under £43,000 at Barons' Spring Classic Sale on Saturday, 21 April. Star lot at Sandown Park was a 1965 Mercedes 230SL Pagoda, which was eventually hammered away for £51,700.

Second past the post was the 1966 Jaguar E-type FHC restoration project. Stripped down, partially restored and ready for the new owner to complete and rebuild, this sold for £45,650. 

Early cars proved also popular, with the 1930 Nash 494 Straight Eight Sedan finishing closely behind the E-type, selling for £44,000. A 1926 Morris Cowley Bullnose, 1935 Talbot AC65 and 1933 Austin 10/4 all found keen new owners.

Among the cars selling for well over top estimate were the 1972 Triumph TR6 (£28, 325), the 1966 Jaguar MkII 3.8 (£22,500) and the 1970 MG CGT (£17,050).

Barons’ auction manager Tim Gascoigne said, 'We sold an E-type restoration project for the second sale in a row, all four vintage cars found a new home, and there were some very strong prices achieved on a number of lots. Bargain of the day definitely has to be the XJ6 restoration project at £450, as the manual gearbox with overdrive is worth over £1000 alone.'

One interesting lot that won’t take up much garage space was the complete, boxed collection of miniature BMW Art Cars, including the very rare #17 Jeff Koon BMW M3 GT2. The set sold for £3,300.
