Recession hits ‘Classic’ Car Values Too

Tue, 02 Dec 2008
It’s a terrible time to sell, but a brilliant time to buy.

This 1970H Rolls Shadow estimated at £3k - £4k went for a mere £2,300. A 1988 Bentley Mulsanne S estimated at £7,500 - £8,500 sold for £3,900. A 1956 Bentley S1 6 cylinder estimated at £18,500 - £24,000 was knocked down for £14,800.

Vendor disappointment led to a lot or provisionals. But the star of the afternoon turned out to be a pristine 14,000 mile Y reg Peugeot 306 cabriolet. Estimated at £2,500 to £3,000, it finally sold for £3,400 and could well delight someone’s wife on Christmas Day.
