Wonderful Wheels at Charterhouse

    The Charterhouse specialist auction of classic and vintage cars on 3rd March was another great success for them with nearly 80% of lots selling.

    “We have held several auctions at the prestigious Haynes International Motor Museum which is such a popular venue with excellent road and rail links.” Commented Richard Bromell. “Now we are fully open, without any restrictions, viewing was busy but it was the auction day which was hugely busy with a full house, along with buyers using live internet and telephone bidding.”

    Top lot in the sale was a 1989 Porsche Carrera Sport Targa sold for £36,000. From long term ownership it was painted in the classic Porsche colour of Guards Red.

    Also from long term ownership, but garage stored since the early 1970’s, was a 1960 Daimler Dart SP250. Now needing full restoration, there was huge pre-sale interest with the winning bidder paying £11,000 for the project.

    Elsewhere in the auction, which totaled nearly £300,000, a 1959 Triumph TR3A sold for £19,000, a 1954 MG TF was bought by a Frenchman for £17,000, a 1972 Opel GT made 11,500, a 1958 Citroen 2CV £11,000 and a 1966 Ford Anglia, which has spent all its life registered in Somerset, sold to a Somerset collector for £11,200 after very determined bidding.

    Charterhouse are now accepting entries for their next specialist auction of classic and vintage cars, being held again at Haynes, on Wednesday 6th July.
