Variety continues to be a theme at WB & Sons sales as the firm prepares for its July sale. Here are some star lots to watch

We never fail to be surprised and enthused by the variety of rare, intriguing and temptingly affordable lots offered in a WB & Sons sale, and the July 20 sale is no exception.

British favourites are in abundance, with a charming 1969 Triumph 1300 said to be in excellent original condition and estimated at £4000–6000, while a 1977 Stag offers another blue Triumph but with a V8 burble and a temptingly low guide price of £7000–9000.

Elsewhere, a 40,000-mile 1977 Vauxhall Viva 1300 GLS dating from 1977 looks to be an excellent survivor, with its fantastic original condition equating to an £8000–10,000 estimate.

A more archetypal family favourite comes in the form of a 1970 Morris Minor Traveller, which looks remarkably tidy given its low £2000–4000 guide. Further classic Brit offerings include a 1952 MG TD that’s estimated at £10,000–14,000, and a charming 1936 Austin Seven that carries a £5000–6000 guide.

If your head is turned by prestige cars, the 2002 Audi S8 Final Edition looks a lovely way to cover mileage in comfort. It has no current MoT, but could provide great value if its £4500–5500 guide is realised.

Meanwhile, a 2002 Porsche Boxster S is a sought-after manual model and looks smart in the unusual hue of teal green – it’s estimated at just £4000–5000. A further prestige car that caught our eye was a 1987 Daimler 3.6, an example of the upmarket XJ40 with just 4000 miles on the clock that (bar a sagging headlining) looks as spotless as you’d expect, earning it a £14,000–18,000 guide price.

If you prefer your Jaguars with more cylinders and lower estimates, a 2002 X308 XJ8 could be for you, estimated at a criminally cheap £1200–1600. Likewise, if you crave an older Jag, a 1966 example of the often-overlooked Jaguar S-Type might tick the box. A 3.8-litre manual car, it could offer the Mk2 experience at a fraction of the price, with this example estimated at just £4000–6000.

As the Festival of The Unexceptional looms, we spotted several ideal cars – a 1990 Ford Sierra LX Estate needs its Focus alloys swapping for some original trims, but its 55,000-mile odometer reading and tidy bodywork make the £1500–2500 guide look very reasonable. A 1995 Volvo 850 SE saloon could be yours for as little as £1000–2000, while what is thought to be the sole g Ford Sierra Sapphire 2.3D L left on UK roads carries a £6000–7000 guide.

Perhaps the most FOTU-appropriate car is the 1987 Nissan Sunny – a 1.3-litre LX with just 42,000 miles to its name, it looks extremely tidy and carries a £1500–2500 guide.
