Seeing Double

A brace of Porsche 911’s and MG TFs give collectors choice in the Charterhouse classic & vintage car auction on Wednesday 3rd March.

“It’s a bit like London busses, you don’t see one all day and two come along at the same time!” Commented Richard Bromell.

The brace of Porsche are two 1980’s 911 Targa’s. Although similar specifications they are slightly different. There is a 1989 911 painted in the classic Porsche colour of Guards red. From long term ownership, this is in original condition with a leather interior estimated at £38,000-42,000. Alternatively, there is a 1982 911 which has been restored and re-painted in its original colour of Mocca brown with a brown and tan Pasha interior at £35,000-40,000.

However, if the 1980’s Porsche are just too wide braces then a brace of 1950’s MG’s offer a more sedate driving experience. There is a cherry red 1954 MG TF 1250 which was exported in right hand drive to Australia estimated at £16,000-18,000, and is only being sold due to the owner focusing on his fast road Triumph TR2. One year newer, and with the larger and more powerful engine is a black 1955 MG TF 1500 at £18,000-22,000. Originally exported to America, the owner has converted the MG to right hand drive. Despite owning the car 5 years, ill health has stopped him from ever driving his pride and joy and now he has given up driving.

Charterhouse are now accepting further entries for this 3rd March auction of classic & vintage cars and classic at the Haynes International Motor Museum and for their 9th March vintage motorcycle auction.
