Hobbs Parker will tug at the nostalgia strings with a host of intriguing rarities when it holds its online classic car and motorcycle sale on July 20-21
With no fewer than 111 lots, Hobbs Parker’s timed online summer sale has something for everyone, with commercials, modern classics, traditional offerings and many lesser-spotted rarities set to be auctioned on July 20-21.
Among the rare survivors that caught our eye were a very original 1983 Opel Monza estimated at £6000-£8000, a Renault 10 that’s expected to fetch £7000-£8000, a 1991 Suzuki Swift GTI guided at £5500-£6500, plus a real unicorn in the shape of a first-generation Seat Ibiza.
Among the traditional classics we fancy a Series 2 XJ6, an unusually tidy Triumph Dolomite 1850, a smart-looking Triumph Spitfire 1500, and a solid-looking Morris Minor estimated at just £2500-£2800. There’s also a recently repainted Stag that could offer good value thanks to its guide of £12,000-£15,000. And then there’s the unlikely sounding combination of a Daimler V8 with a straight-six BMW engine, which may well drive very nicely.
Check out the gallery for some of our favourites, but as ever you’ll find the full catalogue at www.hobbsparker.co.uk. Pre-sale viewing is available (9.00am to 5.30pm) from Monday, July 18 to Wednesday, July 20, and from 9.00am to midday on Thursday, July 21.
