Morris Leslie’s second classic sale of the year takes place at its Perth base on May 18, featuring a wide range of entries to suit all tastes

The catalogue for Morris Leslie’s sale this weekend includes everything from a pre-war Austin Ruby to emerging classics, with several intriguing rarities set to cross the blocks.

Fords take centre stage, both mild and wild. A Mk1 Escort Mexico thought to have originally been a Motoring News rally car is estimated at £32,000–36,000, but it’s the less coveted models that really catch the eye. A low-mileage Mk2 Capri 2.0 Ghia dating from 1974 is guided at an attractive £7500–9000, with a 1980 Ford Fiesta Mk1 showing 16,338 miles estimated at £4000–5000.

A 1961 Consul Classic looks attractive at a predicted £5250–6500, and we particularly like a Mk1 Transit pop-top camper from 1975, which is guided at £10,000–12,000. If you like a Ford powertrain wrapped in something rather more Welsh in origin, then a 1971 Gilbern Invader could be the answer at an estimated £10,500–12,500.

More commonplace are a number of traditional Brits, including no fewer than four Morris Minors, and four open-top Triumph comprising a Stag, a Herald 13/60 Convertible and a couple of Spitfires – one a Mk3, the other a late 1500. An identically propelled MG Midget 1500 in Inca Yellow is guided at £5500–6500, with a 1965 example of its Austin-Healey Sprite stablemate guided at £6000–7000. You’ll also find what is thought to be the oldest remaining MG Magnette, which wears chassis number 507 and carries an estimate of £8000–10,000.

Further noteworthy Brits include a 1954 Alvis TC 21/100 guided at £14,000–16,000, an equally regal 1951 Riley RMB and a 1994 Morgan 4/4 that’s covered just 3108 miles. A Lotus Elan M100 in Series 2 flavour could be yours for as little as £5000, with an Esprit GT V8 dating from 2000 expected to fetch £28,000–32,000.

You’ll find various German classics too, with numerous Audi TTs joined by a 11-strong Mercedes-Benz contingent, a collection of six BMWs (including three M3s) and very smart Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk1 in white. For those looking for a bargain started classic, meanwhile, a 2002 Nissan Micra K11 is joined by a couple of Citroën Saxos, one a rare diesel from 2000, the other a 1.4-litre petrol from 2002. We also quite like a 1999 Hyundai Coupe, simply because we can’t remember the last time we saw one. For the full catalogue, see
