2CV Dolly Makes Huge £5,140 in Barons Classic Auction

Sat, 14 Feb 2009
73% of the lots on offer in Barons’ first sale of 2009 at Sandown Park on February 10th found new homes.

These included the rare 1926 Rolls-Royce Phantom One, with non attributed, LWB Tourer coachwork and in need of much TLC, which sold for a healthy £41,226, and - proving that the ice outside was no deterrent to thoughts of top-down motoring - the immaculate 1984 Citroen 2CV6 Dolly Special, which sold for a heartwarming £5,140, well and truly exceeding the estimate of £3,000-£4,000.

Barons’ MD, Laurence Sayers-Gillan, was buoyant, “Despite blizzards, freezing fog, black ice, record breaking rain storms, floods and doom merchants trying to depress the nation every day, we had an excellent result. This continues the trend we experienced in 2008, as the December sale ended the year on a particularly high note.

“There was standing room only and a terrific atmosphere in the hall, plus over 30 telephone and commission bids arranged by viewers the day before. The horendous weather meant that entry numbers were somewhat down on our usual 50+, but that was more than counteracted by the quality of the entry. Even under normal conditions this would have been a pretty good sale - and in the prevailing conditions it was outstanding.”

With the announcement that BCA have dropped dedicated Classic and Historic sales from their calendar, Barons is now the only real alternative in the South of England. With the magnificent venue at Sandown Park plus a highly professional and competitively priced service, the company looks set for another 10 years of steady growth.

Barons’ next sale at Sandown Park is on March 24th. Early entries include a spectacular 1930 Nash 494 sedan limousine which
has been lovingly restored from a bare chassis up (estimate £35,000-£45,000). For further information on the sale, please visit, email or call 08454 30 60 60.
