On Your Marques

    There is a great selection of over 50 classic and vintage cars going under the Charterhouse gavel in their auction at Haynes on Thursday 8th June.

    “We have supercars, big cars, little cars, show cars, project cars, off-road cars and even camper vans ready for summer fun.” Commented Richard Bromell. “With motors dating from the 1936 to 2012 there is a great choice with some being sold without reserve up to an iconic 1970 Jaguar E-Type estimated at £65,000.”

    There are prestige marques including a 2004 Bentley Continental GT, a 1977 Rolls-Royce Shadow II and a 2000 Aston Martin Vantage Volante.

    For pre-war enthusiasts there is a trio of Austin 7’s, all from a Somerset deceased estate being sold without reserve along and a 1935 Rover 14 Special once owned by Mr Peter Rowntree of the sweet’s family fame.

    For those who like the wind in their hair there is a 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SL, a Porsche 550 Spyder replica and 1989 BMW 325i convertible.

    And for those who like smaller cars there is a 1978 Mini pickup and a brace of Fiat 500F’s.

    These cars, and all the other entries, are available to view on where live online internet bidding is also available.

    Viewing is at the Haynes Motor Museum, Sparkford BA22 7LH on Wednesday 7th June 9.30am-5pm and on the auction day from 9.30am with the sale starting at 12 noon.
