Classic Auction in Dorset on 24th March

Dorset Vintage and Classic Auctions forthcoming Spring Sale on Thursday 24th March promises to be one of their largest yet, offering a wide range of motor cars, commercials and motorcycles.

One of the stars of the auction will be the beautifully restored to original specification 1959 Jaguar XK150 SE Fixed Head Coupe. With an estimate of £45,000 – £50,000, this extremely elegant motor car is a true investment piece and will give its new custodian hours of pleasurable motoring. Joining the Jaguar is another classic British sports car of the same era: a very well restored 1959 MGA Fixed Head Coupe 1800cc with a five speed gearbox (£15,000 – £16,000).

An array of Mercedes have been consigned to the sale; most notably, a beautifully stylish cream 1968 250SL with a Pagoda Hardtop which has an estimate of £20,000 – £24,000.

For those who prefer their transport to be vintage, the Spring Sale will offer an excellent selection: a pretty 1933 MG J2 Midget (£19000 – £23,000), a beautiful 1935 Rover 12 Sports Saloon (£11,500 – £12,500) and a 1936 Alvis Silver Eagle SG 16.95 Holbrook Sports Saloon (£18,000 – £20,000).

Fans of commercials will not be disappointed; vehicles consigned will include a faultless 1969 Bedford CA Mk 2 LWB Van in RAC livery (£5,750 – £6,750), two of the ever popular Morris Minor Vans – both of 1971 vintage, a restored 1960 Ford Thames 400E Pick-Up Truck (£8,000 – £9,000), a 1966 Ford Transit Tipper Transporter, ideal for transporting a classic car (£3500 – 4500) and a beautifully restored 1960 Austin A60 Pick-Up Truck (£4,500 – £5,500).

Other entries range from a 1964 Morris Minor Traveller in restored condition (£5,750 – £6,750), several MGs, motorcycles including a pretty BSA Bantam D1, and a 1960 Alvis TD21 Saloon, for restoration (£4,500 –  £5,500), to more modern classics, such as a 1966 Alfa Romeo GTV6, a 1971 Triumph TR6, a 1987 Audi Quattro UR and many others.

The sale will be held at the Gartell Light Railway, Common Lane, Yenston, near Templecombe, Somerset, BA8 0NB. For further information, please visit telephone Brian Chant on 01963 363353.
