BARONS CAR AUCTIONS REVIEW

BARONS CAR AUCTIONS REVIEW

Posted by Glenn Rowswell on 7th September 2017

BARONS, SANDOWN PARK, SURREY, JULY 18

While there were fewer classics than at Barons previous sales, the cosmetic quality was noticeably up and prices paid were form-beatingly higher.

The results-topping 1970 Jaguar E Type S2 – a restored FHC with many renewed panels and a fresh interior plus rebuilt 4.2 motor – had viewers all over it like wasps around a jam jar.

It duly sold under Duncan Brown’s gavel for £51,700 plus premium. By contrast, a retail-ready 1961 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk2 BN7 lefty on triple carbs did not succeed at £65,000.

While 19 of the 40 classic runners displayed under the Sandown Park grandstand found new riders, 21 unsold classics had to be trailered back to the same stables.
