Classic Auctions Sept/Oct

Post by NewcastleFalcon » 05 Sep 2018, 20:29

Upcoming auctions in September/October courtesy of Glenmarch.com

Not that great in linking directly to auction catalogues but pretty comprehensive on the when and where of upcoming classic auctions.

Go direct to the auction house websites to view vehicles.

There's one of these too, not the worlds most desirable Lancia, or the most desirable colour, but a very interesting lot which wouldnt surprise if the estimate was well smashed at the auction.

and if you dont fancy the Lancia there is the very similar ALFA equivalent

that little Renault 10 is properly cute. Lovely video of one being driven here seems to go surprisingly well.

There was a "no brakes" message written on the windscreen, but a really nice entry into the world of "classic Motoring" and a definite head-turner for me. I will have to get off my backside one day and take the plunge.

Nice video, and I think I saw something familiar at the start of the drive. That in the background is a very impressive bottleneck on the East Coast Mainline known as The Digswell Viaduct (or Welwyn Viaduct) already mentioned in dispatches on POTD

This is a useful little site for a bit of paddling around in classic cars for sale "on the continent".

Here it is, preloaded with a Renault 4cv search seeing as POTD featured a 4cv today.

That's a pricy Saxo...

Good to see they seem to be appreciating in value but never realised there was an auto...

The early S1 Saxo is definitely the cream of the crop :)

Sale results from Bicester Brightwells Classic and Vintage Sale 24th October 2018

I quite liked the Alfetta top of the list in alphabetical order, not your top drawer classic but interesting enough.

The year I was born... I'd rather have the other car born at the same time as me though - the Mini :)

Wasn't the 105E Anglia also born in 1959?
