PREVIEW: TENNANTS, LEYBURN, OCT 7
At the time of writing the catalogue for Tennants’ next sale was split roughly equally between motorbikes and cars and for those of us with a preference for four wheels there are some intriguing lots. Group Ed Wager was much taken with the Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV6, a rare survivor showing just 60,000 miles with two owners and estimated at £11,000-£13,000.
Running it a close second is a one-owner R107 Mercedes 300SL estimated at just £5000-£6000 despite being described as solid and original and MoT’d until January.
Another low-mileage find is the 1975 MGB GT showing just 1273 miles with one owner and estimated at £12,000-£15,000. We can’t help thinking it would be a crying shame to fit the included chrome bumper conversion kit though.
Something more sedate is the 1959 Rover P4, this being the six-cylinder Rover 100. With a folder full of receipts, it’s estimated at £5000-£6000.
Those after something older have a choice of two Austin Sevens: a 1928 ‘Chummy’ Tourer valued at £6000-£8000 and a 1928 example valued at £10,000-£13,000.
Oh and no auction these days would be complete without a Jaguar XK8, the example here being a 2005 model making it one of the last of the X100 generation. With 90,000 miles showing it’s estimated at £6500-£8000.
