Morris Leslie Auctions kicks off its 2018 with a bang with its first sale set to take place on February 17 in Perth, Scotland.
The team hold a dedicated classic car auction quarterly, meaning that there are always a strong number of cars on sale at each auction. Morris Leslie expects the growth in the market to continue into 2018 with attendance levels regularly exceeding 1500 people on the day and around 200 classic entries secured. There’s an exciting mix of cars on sale from Rovers to Mercedes AMGs, with something for every budget. As many of the cars hold MoTs, the cars are (in theory) ready to drive away.
Speaking with Morris Leslie’s classic auction manager Keith Murray he remains positive about the market and in particular the growth in a younger audience. “We are very aware of a healthy growth in younger enthusiasts who target cars from all eras (particularly modern classics), which we consider both encouraging and vital as these are the people who will keep the classic car scene going for years to come. In conclusion, we are keenly anticipating the challenges of the coming year along with the growth we have steadily achieved over previous years.”

Rover 3500 – This LPG-converted Rover 3500 is an interesting lot. It’s covered a respectable 51,000 miles with a healthy amount of paperwork from its years. With an MoT certificate until November 2018, its estimate is between £2000 and £2500.
Sunbeam Rapier Fastback – This 44,000 mile (not checked) Sunbeam Rapier Fastback appears to be in great condition. With MoT until August 2018, it wants for nothing. Estimates are between £5000 and £6000.
Audi 100 E – This Audi 100E presents itself as a bit of a cheap runabout. Estimated between £500 and £1000, this 100,000 mile example is MoT’d until June 2018. It reportedly passed its first UK MoT in 2017, having been imported from the Isle of Man, with no work needing to be carried out.
Swift P Type – Produced between 1926 and 1931, the P Type featured a 1.2-litre four cylinder side valve engine.
