Barons Classic Jaguar Auction results

Barons’ saleroom at Sandown Park was packed with classic car  

enthusiasts on April 27th for a sale which, once again, proved that  

well presented cars will find ready homes and, where a car catches the  

eye of a couple of determined bidders, strong prices will be achieved.


A number of cars accelerated way past estimate, with a lovely little  

1947 MG TC Midget selling for nearly double its estimate, at £19,121,  

and a rare and stunning LHD 1969 Maserati Ghibli Coupe also generating  

quite a bidding battle before it sold to a Danish buyer for £39,124,  

some £12,000 over top estimate.


“In both these cases the vendors had opted to set a very reasonable  

reserve which meant an appealing guide price. And, as so often happens  

with a good car at an attractive estimate, the end result was an  

impressive sale price,” said Barons’ MD Laurence Sayers-Gillan.


Jaguar fans were much in evidence for the Jaguar Heritage element of  

the event, for which over 30 examples of the marque were assembled.  

The top-selling ‘big cat’ was the fine 1974 E-type S3 Roadster  

(£43,594), followed by an elegant 1948 3.5 Saloon (£43,420) and a very  

well presented pair of late 1950’s XK150s, a 1958 DHC (£39,124) and a  

1959 FHC (£36,330).


Other notable Jaguar results included the registration number ‘ET 38’,  

which sold for £13,689 and is now on its way to grace, presumably,  

either an E-type or the car of a sci-fi fan. And a beautiful, pre- 

production 1997 Daimler Super V8, a true one-lady owner car, saw  

something of a bidding frenzy before being knocked down for £14,359,  

again, healthily over estimate.


The sale offered cars from nine decades, ranging from ‘Abigail’, the  

charming 1929 Dodge Six Phaeton (£16,215), up to a relatively  

contemporary car that’s already well on the way to being a classic - a  

2000 Mini Cooper Sport (£5,711).


Entries are now invited for Barons’ sale at Sandown Park on June 15th.  

Early entries include a rare 1967 Honda S800 Coupe with just 36,000   

miles on the clock (estimate £8,000-10,000). For further information,
