A fine spring day in the Peak District saw a big catalogue of nearly 100 lots swiftly despatched by H&H in front of a busy audience with plenty of the lots unsold under the hammer quickly and efficiently converted to sales while the action was still in full swing.
We round up our favourite lots to sell at the H&H October 2019 auction, which took place at Duxford on October 16.
Another mammoth sale at the Imperial War Museum saw H&H hammer their way through no less than 100 lots, ranging from humble Frogeye to exotic Aston Martin V8, with some intriguing oddities thrown into the mix. One of which was the Spanish-built Santana incarnation of the Land Rover – at £2500 an affordable way to acquire an ’89 Landy. Meanwhile, the Toylander home-built children’s Land Rover made £2500, while the show’s big-money performer was the £270,000 Ferrari Dino, closely followed by the £90,000 result for a 1964 E-Type roadster.
We’ve picked out the cars which caught our eye, but you’ll find the full listing and results at online.handh.co.uk.
The £8000 hammer price made this 3200GTA an affordable way into Maserati ownership. Just don’t expect it to be plain sailing…
The Porsche 944 remains an underrated car, especially in improved S2 form, which makes this tidy 1991 convertible look great value at £8500.
The DeLorean DMC-12 has been slowly but surely appreciating in recent years and the hammer dropped on this rare manual example at £27,500.
It’s rare to find an R107 Mercedes SL under the £10,000 mark these days, which made the £7000 hammer price of this 280SL look like a good result for its new owner.
Surprise of the sale for us was the hefty £75,000 hammer price of this Audi Quattro. A late-model 20-valve car from 1991, it boasts just 32,000 miles and one owner from new. Is this a new record for the iconic Audi?
Not so long ago the V8 was the forgotten Aston but these days they’re sought-after. This rare UK-market right-hooker V8 S sold for £60,000.
The Frogeye must be one of the most basic sports cars in history, but demand has kept values climbing. This recently restored 1959 example uprated with 1275cc engine made £15,000.
The Volvo 480ES is certainly more affordable than its predecessor the 1800ES and is probably rarer too. This 23,000-mile example was hammered off for £3600.
The Mk1 Capri is a costly proposition these days, especially in 3-litre GXL form, which explains the £27,000 result for this 1972 car which came with history from new and just 38,000 miles.
Showing just 65,000 miles, this Lancia Delta Integrale sported the eight-valve engine and was impressively original, selling for £10,250.
