A PAIR OF JAGUAR XJ220S LEAP TO THE TOP AT HEYTHROP PARK




A PAIR OF JAGUAR XJ220S LEAP TO THE TOP AT HEYTHROP PARK

Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire was the stunning new venue for Silverstone Auctions two sales, The Heythrop Classic Car sale and A Sale of British Marques, achieving a combined sale of over £2.1 million on Saturday.
With lots of interest both in the room, online and from around the world and in an unsettled market, a 51% sale rate was achieved with some very strong results for some very exceptional cars.
The Sale of British Marques opened with some very fast and furious bidding, as Jay Kay’s Mini was first off the block and being offered at no reserve. This car had attracted significant interest due to its ownership and unusual specification, a bar in the boot, Chesterfield upholstery and velvet curtains. It sold for an amazing £22,500.
Lot 423, the 1935 Bentley 7.4 litre V12 Special sold for an incredible £106,875, whilst Lot 409, the 1975 Jenson Interceptor Series 3 with just over 9,000 miles on the clock, sold for £62,250.
In association with the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club, the Sale of British Marques saw some outstanding cars achieving success with a pair of Jaguar XJ220s leaping to the top, both selling for over £300,000 including buyer’s premium. Lot 410 was the left-hand drive version achieving £303,750 and a new home in Europe, whilst the right-hand version, Lot 429, stayed in the UK and sold for £337,500.
Lot 404 the 1965 Jaguar E-type in original paint sold for £56,625 followed by an almost unrepeatable 1962 Jaguar Mk2 3.8 which had just 8,725 miles on the clock, found a new home for £69,750. Lot 436 the 1964 Jaguar E-type Series 1 which was sold as a restoration project for £69,750.
The Heythrop Classic Car sale which took place earlier in the day saw Lot 303, the wonderful 1967 Honda S800 which had attracted a lot of interest, sell for £17,325 followed by Lot 304 the 1975 BMW 3.0 CSi achieve £41,625.
Lot 313, the 1978 Ferrari 400 GT Series 1 sold for £41,063 and Lot 316, the 1988 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo Targa G50 which had also attracted a lot of interest both before the sale and on preview, sold for £78,750.
The Automobilia sale which opened proceedings achieved a fantastic sale rate of 81% with some very notable sales. The collection of signed photographs, Lot 142, sold for £1,560 and Lot 110 the multi-signed race helmet achieved a price of £1,320. Lot 106, the 1970 Beckmeter Shell fuel pump sold for a staggering £4,080.
Arwel Richards, Auction Manager for the sale commented: "It was the first time that we staged a sale at Heythrop Park and the glorious setting matched the quality of the cars we had on offer. The two XJ220s we sold showed that the market still appreciates rare and low mileage cars, with the 8,000-mile Jaguar MkII 3.8 smashing its estimate is another example.”
"As one of the few auction houses that offers immediate "buy it now" prices for cars that don’t sell under the hammer, the sales team worked throughout Saturday evening and Sunday and sold a number of cars in post-sale deals. In a market that is challenging, but showing signs of growth, we have adapted and implemented strategies to ensure we still provide the best service to vendors and buyers."

A FULL HOUSE OF CARS FOR CCA AUCTION

 1969 Alfa Romeo Duetto Boatail Spider 1750
1971 Porsche 911T 2.7-litre
 1999 BMW Z3M Roadster
 1964 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL (W113

As the closing date passed, Classic Car Auctions are delighted to announce a full house of cars, with 151 lots going under the hammer at the Warwickshire Event Centre on the 25th May.
Among the superb lots, which include a number of celebrity cars from Rowan Atkinson’s Mercedes 500 E, to a lovely 1969 Alfa Romeo Duetto Boat-Tail Spider, once owned by John Squires of the Stone Roses. He was the first owner who imported the car and since arriving in the UK in 2001, it was then restored to a very high standard, with a comprehensive history file of the work undertaken and invoices to John Squires. Now finished in period grey with a burgundy leather interior it is being offered for an estimated £26,000 to £30,000.
Gary Dunne, Classic Car Auctions sales manager commented: “We are absolutely delighted that Rowan Atkinson CBE has chosen Classic Car Auctions to sell his Mercedes. We are often asked to sell cars on behalf or directly for well-known individuals. This is a special car for him and offered at No Reserve. It has created a lot of interest, as all of his cars usually do.”
“We also have a couple of other cars with interesting celebrity connections such as the lovely Alfa and also two cars from Harry Metcalfe of Harry’s Garage.”
If you are after a two-seater for the summer and maybe something a bit more modern, a 1999 BMW Z3M Roadster is being offered in a stunning colour combination of Estoril Blue with a blue and silver Nappa interior. With just one owner from new and only 6,000 miles on the clock and 15 miles travelled since its last major service, this car is one for the discerning collector. Estimated at £28,000 to £32,000.
A really wonderful classic is this 1964 Mercedes 230 SL ‘Pagoda’, which has been in family ownership for the last 43 years and dry stored from 1976 to 2004. Presented in light red with a black Pagoda hard top, this car has been maintained rather than restored, with around £22,000 spent in recent years. The current vendor who is a member of the same family and has used the car since is now offering it for sale estimated at £38,000 to £44,000.
And for a true classic, a 1971 Porsche 911 T. Imported from Orlando, Florida in 2016 with an indicated 17,700 miles. This car has been fully restored over the last three years, repainted in Sepia Brown and has been fitted with the larger capacity 2.7-litre engine. It has a full UK history, but nothing from its time in the USA, making this car great value at £50,000 to £60,000.
Gary Dunne commented further: “This 1970s Porsche 911T is the car of my childhood and great looking Porsche. Alongside the BMW Z3M, we also have a pair of BMW M3s, one each from a different decade.”
“With 151 cars consigned and a valuation of around £2,000,000, we are looking forward to a great auction with full restoration projects to genuine and original examples being offered at the Warwickshire Event Centre on the 25th May.”

With 75 lots of rare and exotic cars and 109 lots of Automobilia, a busy and exciting sale awaits bidders.
Amongst the lots are the Aston Martin DB5, once owned by renowned car collector Chris Evans and used as the official car on a limited edition of stamps by the Royal Mail. A rare DB2 Washboard in stunning condition and a fabulous Ferrari Daytona Spyder, are just a some of the highlighted Lots.
We are also delighted that Jamiroquai frontman, Jay Kay, has given us a personal preview of his Mini Cooper Sport, Lot 401 and its unique features to bidders. You can see his amusing introduction to “Chuckles” in the video below.
The British Marques Sale, in association with the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club, has a wide selection of Jaguars on offer including the two Jaguar XJ220s (Lots 410 & 429), a number of E-types in varying conditions and an astoundingly low mileage Mk2 3.8 (Lot 405).
Lot 449 in the British Marques Sale is a very rare Lotus Exige, Chassis No1 with just 17,100 miles on the clock and only 1,400 covered in the last 12 years. This car has a very interesting history, it was tested by Richard Hammond in the period, Lotus Cars and Coronation St, Emmerdale and Shameless actor Scott Wright where previous owners. With only 100 of these Series 1 cars thought to remain in right-hand drive, Chassis No1 is estimated at £40,000 to £50,000.
The next two highlighted Lots, 427 and 434, are rather special and perfect for summer. Firstly, we have the 1991 Bentley Continental Convertible, Lot 427, one of just 421 built and supplied new to Japan before being sold to its second owner in California where it stayed with limited usage until 2005. The previous vendor bought the car with 21,000 miles from new before it was sold to the current vendor in 2013 who used it for high days and holidays, covering just 5,700 miles whilst in his care. A rare opportunity for an estimate of £80,000 to £90,000.
The second of these Lots is 434, the 1973 Rolls-Royce Corniche DHC, which has had just three owners and covered only 29,000 miles. A stunning Corniche with an extensive history folder all very neatly filed, this car is totally original and untouched. Fastidiously looked after, it is preserved in incredible condition and estimated at £70,000 to £80,000.
Lot 313 in the Heythrop sale, the 1978 Ferrari 400 GT Series 1 is an incredible opportunity to own. It is 1 of only 27 right-hand drive cars in manual, with less than 45,000 miles and has had only four previous owners, two of which are from the same family. With an unbroken history file, tool kit, original Neiman keys a recent service, this car is offered with an estimate of £38,000 to £44,000.
In the Automobilia and Watches sale, there are a wide selection of items to choose from. If you are planning to go on holiday why not treat yourself to a set of Ferrari 355 Schedoni Luggage? A three-piece set which today is very rare and no longer being produced. Including locks and keys, but no dust cover, estimated at £800 to £1,200.
Alternatively, if you have a Ferrari 328/Mondial, how about an original Cavallino print luggage set. Manufactured by Italstyle during the 1970s, this is a lovely set of luggage estimated at £2,000 to £2,500.

QUIRKY, FAMOUS, FUN AND A LUXURY BENTLEY PICKUP OFFERED AT HEYTHROP AUCTION ON THE 11TH MAY




QUIRKY, FAMOUS, FUN AND A LUXURY BENTLEY PICKUP OFFERED AT HEYTHROP AUCTION ON THE 11TH MAY
1956 Bentley S1 Pickup

Silverstone Auctions sale at Heythrop Park on the 11th May will feature amongst its lots some quirky and famous cars from the world of motoring.
Leading the quirky and famous charge in the British Marques sale is the Mini Cooper Sport owned by Jay Kay of Jamiroquai, with the very unusual Bentley S1 Pickup and in the Heythrop sale is the Excalibur SS formerly owned by film star Tony Curtis with a Honda’s revvy little sportscar the S800.
The first sale of the day at Heythrop is the Classic Car sale which includes Tony Curtis’ 1965 Excalibur SS, the sixth edition built and bought brand new by the film actor. The car was then bought directly from Tony Curtis by philanthropist David S. Gilmore for the Gilmore Car Museum in Michigan where it was on display for forty-years. In 2008 the car was imported to the UK after being purchased by the current vendor for his collection. The car is presented in superb unrestored condition with just under 6,500 miles, with the current vendor covering just 200 miles whilst in his ownership. The car is offered at £65,000 to £75,000 with a file that contains all the provenance records, a signed copy of Tony Curtis’ autobiography in which he proudly lists his car collection, with the Excalibur namechecked.
Arwel Richards, Auction Manager for the Heythrop sale commented: "The Excalibur ticks every box; chassis number six, owned new by acting legend Tony Curtis, forty-years in a museum, low mileage and unrestored!"
"Excaliburs rarely come to market and the SS Series 1 is by far the rarest model, making it very desirable for the collector. We're anticipating strong interest from America and our international bidding platform naturally makes it easier for overseas bidders to get in involved."
In 1965 Honda produced the next generation of its rev-for-ever little sports car, the S800. This particular car is a 1967 righthand drove model which underwent a full body off restoration between 2014 and 2017 and the engine was overhauled by a former Rolls-Royce engineer. Looks to be in a smart condition and comes from careful ownership. The Honda is being offered at £15,000 to £20,000.
In the British Marques auction is the 2000 Mini Cooper Sport owned by Jamiroquai frontman, Jay Kay. Affectionately known as “Chuckles”, this is no ordinary Mini. It comes with Chesterfield upholstery, red velvet roof lining and curtains, a disco light and to top it all off a “mini bar” in the boot! With just under 16,000 miles this Mini will certainly help you stand out from the crowd and is offered at no reserve.
And for something even more quirky a 1956 Bentley S1 Pickup. Originally purchased new as a Bentley S1 Saloon, the car was sold and went to Australia where it underwent conversion into a utility vehicle and painted Banana Yellow. The car returned to the UK in 2012 and has since formed part of the current vendor’s private collection. It is not the UK registered, but all taxes have been paid and what could be the poshest Ute is now offered at £25,000 to £30,000.
In the automobilia sale, there are 109 lots ranging from watches, pictures and even fuel pumps and traffic lights.
Following on with our famous, fun and quirky we have the multi-signed 60s helmet once owned by Roy Turner who had Andy Cap, the Daily Mirror comic strip, painted on it and then sought the autographs of John Surtees, Jackie Stewart, Mike Spence, Chris Amon, Bruce Mclaren, Tony Lanfranchi and Denny Hulme. Now for sale estimated at £800 to £1,200.
To celebrate a historical moment in hill climbing, a poster from Shelsley Walsh’s Classic Nostalgia in 2016, with autographs from the race and rally legends Hans Stuck, Mike Broad, Russell Brookes, Jimmy McRae, Neil Wilson, Ian Grindrod and motorsport journalist Nigel Roebuck. Estimated at £200 to £400.
For the classic car restorer or enthusiast is the Wolseley 12-48 front grille, complete and in sound condition with cap and badge wiring, but in need of restoration for £100 to £150.
And now for the fun, the ultimate accessory for any man cave, your own set of traffic lights complete with remote control. Fully functioning and with wall mounting brackets, could be yours for £400 to £600.
The Heythrop and British Marques sale is a one day sale with a viewing of the lots on Friday 10th May from 09:00 until 17:00 and on the morning of Saturday 11th May 2019.
The auction will take place on the 11th May starting with the Automobilia at 10:30 followed by the Heythrop Classic Car sale at 12:30 and finally the British Marques at 14:00

JAGUAR RESTORATION PROJECTS TO GO UNDER THE HAMMER AT SILVERSTONE AUCTIONS BRITISH MARQUES SALE


]

JAGUAR RESTORATION PROJECTS TO GO UNDER THE HAMMER AT SILVERSTONE AUCTIONS BRITISH MARQUES SALE

A number of Jaguar restoration projects are set to be auctioned at the British Marques sale in association with the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club at Heythrop Park on the 11th May.
E-types, XK150s and XK120s in varying conditions are being offered to new homes and these cars come with some wonderful history.
The 1966 Series 1 FHC 2+2 E-type is quite incredible as it has had just one owner from September 1967. Cherished and used up to 1980 this E-type then spent the remaining 38 years in a garage prior to coming out for auction. In need of some restoration, this matching numbers example is supplied with a fantastic history folder, a Heritage Trust Certificate, plus factory manuals, original buff logbook and purchase invoice. A great opportunity, estimated at £30,000 to £35,000.
A matching numbers 1964 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 3.8 Roadster has surfaced after returning from Hong Kong where it was delivered. The former custodian of the car for 36 years, had it dismantled and shipped back to the UK and put in dry storage. It was subsequently then sold on to the current vendor, who planned to restore the car, but due to more pressing projects, is now offering the car for sale. All parts are documented with an impressive inventory and an unwarranted 22,631 miles which could well be correct. This right-hand drive car would make an exciting project estimated at £50,000 to £70,000.
There are very few Jaguar XK150 ‘S’ available, this is one of 86 coupes in right-hand drive with a manual gearbox, overdrive and a 3.8 litre engine. With matching numbers and in need of returning the car to its former glory having been in storage since 1975, this is a wonderful opportunity to restore this highly original Jaguar to the road. Estimated at £45,000 to £55,000 it comes with a Heritage Certificate and it last valid tax disc, December 1975, still on the windscreen.
In 1948 Jaguar launched the XK120 at the Earls Court Motor Show with 194 right-hand drive fixed head coupes being made. This particular car is #111 and presented in British Racing Green, we understand that only 24 were made in this colour, making this a very rare colour choice. This matching numbers car was discovered in Denmark by the vendor and recently returned to the UK to be restored. Estimated at £35,000 to £45,000 this is probably one of the last unrestored examples left.
Arwel Richards, Auction Manager for the Heythrop sale commented: "Jaguars are always a popular choice of car and in our British Marques sale we have quite a choice including these restoration projects.”
“The XK120 is of significant interest, bearing in mind in could be one of the last unrestored examples.
“We are looking forward to a great day of sales, as we have the Heythrop Classic Car Sale first, followed by the British Marques Sale in association with the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club later on the same day.”
The Heythrop and British Marques sale is a one day sale with viewing of the lots on Friday 10th May from 09:00 until 17:00 and on the morning of Saturday 11th May 2019.
The auction will take place on the 11th May starting with the Automobilia at 10:30 followed by the Heythrop Classic Car sale at 12:30 and finally the British Marques at 14:00
