Capri Brooklands heads to auction

Published 23 April 2018

A Ford Capri 280 Brooklands and Jaguar XJ-SC V12 Cabriolet are two of the headline-grabbing cars going under the hammer from the Patrick Collection this week.

The fast Ford, which has just one UK registered keeper, has covered 4138 miles from new – and over the past 14 years, it has clocked up just 300. One of just 1038 made, it could fetch between £35,000 and £45,000.

Another low-mileage car with one keeper, it is thought to be be the last V12 Cabriolet to leave the production line (although there is no supporting evidence). Expect to pay between £20,000 and £25,000.

Both cars come from the Patrick Foundation – a charitable trust that started in 1960 when Joseph Patrick, then chairman of Patrick Motors, started buying examples of cars from his various dealership for personal use.

After Joseph’s death, his son Alexander opened a purpose-built museum in Kings Norton, Birmingham, which at its peak owned 240 cars.

Several cars from the collection will go under the hammer on Wednesday, 25 April at H&H Classics’ sale at the Buxton Pavilion Gardens in Derbyshire.
