'Timewarp' Peugeot 309 GTI to go under the hammer

Published 19 January 2019

A well-preserved one-owner 309 GTi is going under the hammer. The 1991 Peugeot, which is in original condition, has 131 miles on the clock and is for sale at Barons’ Classic Winter Warmer sale at Sandown Park on February 26.

The vendor bought the car new in 1991 but was working overseas a great deal and had a second car, so the Peugeot was barely used. Throughout its life, the car has been kept garaged and it is in showroom condition. Engine, electricals, interior, bodywork etc. are as-new and the car could sell for up to £11k.

A spokesman for Barons said, 'This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a ‘new’ classic family saloon that can only prove to be a sound investment for the future.'

As well as the Peugeot, a 7.5-litre 1976 Lincoln Continental Mk IV is up for sale. The car was owned for 12 years by the drummer Mark Brzezicki who is mainly known for his work with Big Country but who has also played with The Cult, Ultravox, Roger Daltrey, Brian May, Peter Gabriel, Lionel Richie, Peter Gabriel and Procol Harum.

The Lincoln is the luxurious Versailles model, complete with working Cartier interior clock. Estimated at £10,000-£13,000, it’s a lot of over-the-top luxury Americana for the money, and comes complete with a lots of history and the hard-to-find workshop manuals.

Other well-presented early entries for February 26 include a 1992 Ginetta G33 and a 1973 Volvo P1800 ES. One of just 70 still in existence, the Ginetta has been restored to original specification by the vendor, who likes this car so much that he has owned it three times (est £15,000-£20,000). The P1800 has been meticulously maintained, comes with a very comprehensive history folder and has a guide price of £11,500-£13,500.

Entries also include a 48,000-mile 1981 Range Rover Classic 2-door. This highly desirable 4x4 comes with the rare power steering option and Friary overdrive and has already had a great deal of money spent on it, including a full body respray, new fuel tank, Holley carburettor and full new interior. It’s a real eye-catcher, in Bahama Gold and definitely more early Land Rover than modern Range Rover to drive! This charismatic and practical car to own and use has a guide price of £9000-£11,000.

For those looking for something to get their teeth into for the spring, there’s the 1974 VW Karmann Ghia convertible restoration project. This RHD model has recently been imported from Ireland and is offered at no reserve.
