Passed Down Through The Family

A 1936 Austin 10 Clifton Tourer, which has been in the same family since 1951, is being sold in the Charterhouse classic & vintage car auction at Haynes on 27th June.

“This charming little tourer has been through four different members of the same family over the past 73 years, which is really quite remarkable.” Commented Richard Bromell.

This Austin 10 Clifton Tourer complete with a Dickey seat, has had little use recently, with the occasional outing in good weather to the local shops to buy a newspaper on the weekend.

Coming to auction with a vast history file documenting all the works carried out since 1951, this charming little Austin is estimated at £6,500-7,500.

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for their busy programme of specialist auctions including coins, medals, stamps, toys, classic cars, and classic motorcycles throughout May and June.

Richard Bromell and the Charterhouse Team can be contacted for specialist advice and valuations at The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne, 01935 812277 or via
