It’s 1968 again at Charterhouse

  • by

Two classic sports cars, a Volvo and a Triumph both from 1968, are set to go head to head against each other at the Charterhouse classic car auction on 6th July at Haynes.

“Whilst I admit to being around in 1968 I was just a toddler but today have a great love for cars and bikes from the late 1960’s.” Commented Richard Bromell.

Both 1968 cars come to Charterhouse with long term ownership.

The Volvo P1800S has been in the same family from new. Having had some £15,000 spent on restoration this sporty Volvo is estimated at £20,000-25,000.

The Triumph TR5 PI comes to auction from its second owner. He bought it in 1971 and the car has only covered just over 56,000 miles from new and is estimated at £36,000-38,000.

Charterhouse are now taking further entries for this classic car auction on 6th July and their classic motorcycle auction on 29th June with both auctions being held at the prestigious Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford.

Richard Bromell and the team at Charterhouse can be contacted for valuations at The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne 01935 812277 or info@charterhouse-auction.com
