“It will be like a proper old country house auction, only with vehicles and on a farm!” Commented Richard Bromell.

All being sold without reserve, the star of the show is a 1933 Alvis Silver Eagle Mayfair DHC. Family owned from new this was bought as a chassis from Alvis and then fitted with a coachbuilt body from the Mayfair Carriage Company which cost £1,000 at a time when you could buy an Austin 7 Ruby for £112.
