Almost 100 lots are set to go under the hammer when Morris Leslie hosts its next classic car and memorabilia auction on Saturday, May 13.
As usual, the sale offers plenty of variety, with various projects, traditional marques, modern performance classics and prestige brands all included – many with very tempting estimates.
Starting with the established classics, you’ll find a at least three MG Midgets, plus two MGBs and a 54,000-mile MGF, all with guide prices below £5000. A 1991 Mini City that’s covered just 11,949 miles is also bound to attract interest, and there will be several Morris Minors including a 1970 car showing just 22,000 miles, plus an example of its pre-war namesake from 1931.
For those after something a little posher, a very smart 1955 Riley RME is joined by a Daimler V8 250 at an estimated £14,000-£16,0000, plus a 1968 Jaguar 240 that’s expected to sell for £8000-£10,000. There’s a more rugged element to the sale, too, with a quartet of Land Rovers that features a very late SWB Series 3 showing a mere 31,674 miles.
It’s a good sale for fans of 1990s performance saloons too. A 1998 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo V carries an attractive £12,000-£14,000 guide, and there are two contemporary Subaru Impreza rivals, both of which could crack the £25,000 barrier. German contenders include a pair of Audi S4s, and there’s a BMW E36 M3 Evolution from 1996, too. If you fancy an older Bavarian bahnstormer, there’s a 1986 E30 325i and a 1984 635CSi, with the latter expected to fetch £18,000-£20,000. You’ll also find a wide selection of Mercedes, with the pick of the bunch a 1985 500SEC estimated at £10,000-£12,000. At the very top of the tree, meanwhile, is likely to be a 1979 Porsche 911 that carries a guide price of £50,000-£55,000.
With other lots including not one but two low-mileage 1.4-litre Ford Pumas and some great starter classics including a 40,000-mile Peugeot 205 Mardi Gras and a 28,000-mile Volvo 340 dating from 1988, there’s bound to be a classic to suit all tastes.
