AUCTION PREVIEW: WB & SONS, OCTOBER 9

Posted by James Howe on 15th September 2021

WB & Sons is preparing for its third ever classic car auction on October 9 at its base in Newcastle. Here are some highlights to look out for

Fledgling auction house WB & Sons held its first sale in May 2021 and followed up with a successful sale in August. Wasting no time, the next WB & Sons sale is set to take place on October 9, 11am at the company’s base at Killingworth, near Newcastle. Online bidding is also available, with viewings beforehand by appointment.

Around 70 lots are expected. Highlights include modern classics like a Jaguar XJR, BMW Z4 and MG TF, a full range of 80s and 90s hot hatches from Peugeot, VW and Vauxhall, plus a wide selection of more traditional 60s and 70s offerings. Those with more transatlantic tastes are also catered for, with a selection of American classics that includes a colossal 1960 Plymouth Fury, among others.

It wouldn’t be a classic car auction without some oddballs: a rare 1998 Ford Transit Stepside Pickup joins a Mitsubishi Colt Starion Turbo and a 1983 Ford Capri 2.8 Injection – powered by a 3.5-litre Rover V8.

Those on the lookout for a project to keep them busy over the off-season could well be tempted by a rare 1971 Austin 1300GT,  South African 1275cc Mk1 Mini or an Alvis TA21 Mulliner – each sporting a sensible estimate.

A few motorcycles are also set to be included in the sale, from squishy cruisers (1983 Honda Goldwing) to dirt bikes (1988 Yamaha KLR250). Perhaps most interestingly, a 1954 Francis-Barnett Falcon 67 project is being presented as a no-reserve charity lot, with all proceeds (including fees) going to Children With Cancer UK.
