Charterhouse will return to its now-regular home of the Haynes International Motor Museum when it hosts its next classic car auction on October 5
Charterhouse’s sales at the Haynes International Motor Museum have been bustling hives of activity in recent years and its next auction on October 5 is set to be no exception.
Traditional British classics are set to star, especially prestige brands. A stunning 1974 Jaguar E-Type Series V12 roadster is one of the most eye-catching and carries an estimate of £64,000–68,000, but you’ll also find a 1964 Mk2 2.4 guided at £13,000–16,000, as well as barn-find Series 1 XJ6 4.2 dating from 1969. Meanwhile, a 1968 Daimler V8 250 is estimated at £15,000–18,000, while a 1984 Silver Spirit could be a good way into Rolls-Royce ownership for an estimated £12,000–15,000. We were also rather taken with an early Rover P6 3500 V8 from 1969, estimated at £5500–6500.
Moving off-road, a very early Land Rover Series 1 80-inch from 1950 could command as much as £35,000, with a 1954 example estimated at a more modest £13,000–15,000 and a 1964 Series 2A 88-inch guided at £20,000–25,000. These are joined by a very tidy 1969 Bedford CA Van estimated at £10,000–12,000, plus a selection of pre-war cars that includes two Austin Sevens and a 1925 Bullnose Morris that’s guided at £7000–9000.
There are many more sporting Brits, too. A 1963 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ7 is guided at £37,000–39,000, while a 1969 MGC roadster is predicted to sell for £15,000–20,000. A 1964 Sunbeam Alpine could potentially be had for £7000–9000, while a Lotus paring includes a 1968 Elan S4 FHC at an estimated £18,000–20,000 and a 1977 Lotus Elite guided at a mere £3500–4000. You’ll also find a 1975 Triumph Stag and a 1975 TR6; both coming from the same stable as a red 1976 Alfa Romeo Montreal that could go for as much as £60,000.
Other Italians include a couple of Fiat 500s in yellow and red that have been dubbed mustard and ketchup. The biggest star, however, could be a 1929 Salmson GS8 ‘Grand Prix’ sports originating from France. Only 27 cars exist worldwide, and this one is expected to sell for £150,000–170,000.
With more modern classics including a Mitsubishi Starion Turbo, a Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth, a Rover 200 BRM, a Mazda MX-5 and a rare MX3, this is set to be an eclectic sale. Head to www.charterhouse-cars.com for more details.
