The next of WB & Sons’ regular sales takes place at its Newcastle upon Tyne base on June 3, and it’s already shaping up to be a real cracker. Over 100 lots are expected, ranging from a 1933 Austin 7 to a 2010 Aston Martin Rapide.
In between sit several established classics, with at least five Minis expected including a 1974 Mini Clubman that replicates a contemporary 1275GT and looks very appealing at an estimated £5000-£7000. A very smart Morris Oxford Traveller dating from 1959 could make as much as £12,000, and a 1964 Bedford CA panel van could go even better, with a top estimate of £15,000.
There are plenty of Blue Ovals too. Older models include a 1970 Ford Capri 3000XL, a 1974 Transit pick-up and a very desirable 1977 Escort Mexico, with a 2003 Focus RS also offered. Amongst the other hot hatches, meanwhile, is a pair of RenaultSport Clios – one a sought-after 182 Trophy model from 2005 – plus a 1999 Citroën Saxo VTS, a 1991 Peugeot 205 GTI 1.9 and a 1994 Lancia Delta Integrale Evo 1 that could make as much as £100,000.
You’ll also find several Porsches, including a 993-generation 911 from 1994, several 996s and a 986-generation Boxster S. Sticking with German cars, it’s hard to ignore an imposing 1972 Mercedes-Benz 280SE presented in Caledonia Green, which is guided at £22,000-£28,000, while a Thistle Green 1983 380SL that’s expected to sell for £12,000-£16,000 is similarly appealing. And to continue the theme, a selection of five BMWs includes a 1983 E21 3 Series in metallic green, which looks very tempting at a predicted £4000-£6000.
Moving to Japanese classics, an exceptionally original example of Toyota’s ST205 Celica GT-Four showing a mere 60,000 miles is bound to be popular, while a touch more modest is a 1997 Nissan Primera SRI, which could be a three-figure bargain.
With other lots set to include several Jaguars, various motorcycles and even a 1993 Fiat Tempra, there should be plenty to pique a wide range of interests. To view the full catalogue as it builds, head to the WB & Sons website at: wbandsons.com
