CCA returns after two years out with a fantastic sale set for the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show on March 19–20
After an absence of two years due to the pandemic, CCA will be back at Birmingham’s NEC to host a busy sale as part of the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show, with discovery+. The auctions take place over the Saturday and Sunday of the show, with no fewer than three separate collections joining a huge variety of traditional, modern and future classics.
Saturday begins with the Warwickshire Collection, which features almost 30 Range Rover, Land Rover, Jaguar and Daimler lots comprising complete cars, projects, separate chassis and barn finds. Amongst them you’ll find a new Jaguar XJ Series 2 bodyshell, three XJ-Cs, a Daimler Double-Six and a whole host of early Range Rovers.
Saturday’s subsequent main sale is extremely eclectic, with a Lancia Fulvia project, a Gilbern Invader, a Porsche 914, a 1948 Alvis TA11 and a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IV among the first lots. You’ll also find a 1968 MGC GT restored by the MG Owners’ Club and a 1965 Saab 96 that recently starred in an episode of Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars. Jaguar fans, meanwhile, might be intrigued by two X300 XJ6s converted to 450bhp Chasseur Tornado spec by Paramount Performance.
Sunday gets under way with the Hampshire Collection – eight Stateside cars ranging from a 1932 Buick to a 1970 Cadillac. This is followed by a selection of British barn find cars in the County Down Collection, comprising mostly Land Rovers, Rover P6s and Jaguars.
A further 100 cars will then go under the hammer, dominated by Mercedes, Porsche and Jaguar entries, but no less eclectic than the previous day. A 1967 Bentley T Convertible could be the headliner at an estimated £80,000-£95,000, but there’s also an exceptional E30 BMW M3, a couple of Audi Quattros, a selection of Mitsubishi Evos, a pair of Subarus Imprezas and several Lotus Elises.
Hot hatches this time include a 2005 Renault Megane Sport 225, a rare 2000 Honda Civic VTI-S Jordan and a 1994 Nissan Pulsar GTI-R, while Italy is well represented by a 1972 De Tomaso Pantera, a 1999 Ferrari F355 F1 Spider, a stunning 1969 Lancia Fulvia Sport Zagato Series 1 and two Delta Integrales. And just when you thought you’d seen it all, there’s even a Lamborghini tractor, a Gaz Volga and a Maestro van to ensure all tastes are catered for.
