On Saturday 25th September, Classic Car Auctions had their third sale of 2021, The Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show Sale. The sale saw 130 Everyman Classics go under the hammer with some fantastic results along the way. The auction was a huge success with £1.4 million worth of cars sold with a sales rate of 69%.
Everyman Classics from across the decades went under the hammer including this stunning, freshly restored, 1970 Jaguar E-Type Series 2 4.2 Fixed Head Coupe. Factory finished in Pale Primrose with a smart black interior and an immaculate engine bay, this exceptional car sold in CCA’s sale above the top estimate for £63,048.
On the auction day Fords took centre stage and achieved some fantastic results including Lot 564, the 1979 Ford Escort Mk2 RS2000 Custom. This superb example is very highly sought-after and has been fastidiously restored to a Concours standard, resplendent in Signal Yellow, the car sold for £43,290. Lot 558, the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 - "John Wick" Boss 429 Recreation sold with Classic Car Auctions for £66,600. This example was superbly restored with the intention of re-creating the Mustang Boss 429 from the series of John Wicks films. One last example of the Fords sold on the day was Lot 518, the 1976 Ford Transit Mk1 LWB Panel Van. This nicely restored example is a rare sight on today’s roads and previously formed part of a private collection where it was lightly used for the past 11 years – this sold for £10,212.
Gary Dunne, CCA’s Sales Manager commented “We would like to thank all of our vendors, buyers and under-bidders for supporting our recent auction. It was truly fantastic to see so many faces in the room, whilst also offering absentee bidding too. You can view all of the results from the day on our website.”
The catalogue included such a wide variety of different marques such as Toyota, Jaguar, Porsche, and many more with some having low mileage, exciting provenance, and low ownership. Lot 548, the 1985 Lamborghini Jalpa P350 3.5 V8 had recently been superbly refreshed with only 50,700km on the clock. This example was on offer from a private collection and sold fantastically for £77,700.
An unrepeatable example that was sold at the sale was Lot 522, the 2020 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 Pro. This is a fifth-generation 3-litre Supra in GR-Pro spec which has covered just 2,384 miles in the careful hands of its only owner. Finished in Downshift Blue with a black interior and was ordered in GR Supra Pro-spec which includes 19" black and silver forged alloy wheels (5-double-spoke) sold on Saturday for £37,185.
