The Hammond Microcar Auction October 27th

October 12th Auction Highlights

Little Car with a Big Price

A Peel P50 microcar, from the Hammond Microcar Museum Collection being sold by Charterhouse Auctioneers on Thursday 27th October, could sell for up to £100,000.

“The Hammond Microcar Collection Museum is the result of one family’s 40 year interest and obsession with these diminutive cars.” Commented Richard Bromell. “It has not been an easy decision for the family to disperse the collection but with the mother now in residential care they have taken the difficult decision to sell the collection and instructed Charterhouse to put them all under the auction gavel.”

In the collection there are 100 lots of automobilia, engines and spares followed by 40 microcars, with most of the lots being sold without reserve.

Star of the collection is the 1963 Peel P50. With three wheels, one headlight, one door and three gears without a reverse, this is estimated at £85,000-100,000.

Viewing is at The Hammond Microcar Collection Museum, Boarden Lane, Hawkenbury, Kent TN12 0EB on Wednesday 26th October 9.30am-5.00pm with the auction being held online by Charterhouse at their Sherborne Salerooms in Dorset on Thursday 27th October at 10.00am
