1933 MG J2 Star of Barons 8th February Auction

The star of the show at Barons’ first sale of 2011 on February 8th was a charming 1933 MG J2 Midget, which came with five decades of history of ownership in the same family. This lovely old MG was bid to over top estimate, making a well-deserved £24,300. 

 

The number of entries may have been a little down on February 2010, but the quality of the lots at Sandown Park was well up to standard and 80% of them found new homes.

 

The unique, Jaguar-based 1966 Dunsmore Racing Special also drove over top estimate, selling for £21,000, while the most powerful machine on offer - the AK427 Cobra Replica - which had covered just 950 miles from new and was an awesome beast, was a great buy at £35,000. 

 

A beautiful Rolls-Royce MPW 2 Door Coupe, which had failed to sell at Barons in December, was re-presented correctly with reams of build history, looking like a different car and made £14,650, proving that good presentation and attention to detail makes all the difference when it comes to catching a buyer’s eye.

 

And at the other end of the presentation scale, one buyer snapped up a challenging restoration project, described as ‘not for the faint-hearted’, when they acquired a 1973 Maserati Indy 4.7 for just £980.

 

Full results of the February 8th sale appear below. Barons’ next sale at Sandown Park is its Classic, Collectors and Sports Cars auction, on March 15th. Early entries include a stunning Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible with just two owners and 24,000 miles on the clock, an immaculate, totally restored 1968 Sunbeam Alpine MkV, and a charming Wolseley 4-44 Saloon originally destined for the February sale but consigned instead to March.
