At The Auctions

Post by surfblue63 »

In the same vein as the Ebay thread here's a thread to look at what's coming up or just been sold at auction.

To kick off here's 3 motors that are coming up at the CCA Auction at the NEC Restoration show at the end of the month.

First up is an ex Jeff Beck Mainstrem Cooper. Will the previous ownership help with value?

Next up is a Mk2 Cooper that has been doing the rounds

And finally another Mk2 Cooper, this time an unfinished project

Ford Escort cognoscenti would know immediately what you were referring to if you said ‘XOO 347F’.
One of the most famous racing Escorts of all time, the twin-cam Mk1 used in 1968 by the de facto works Ford team, Alan Mann Racing.
And now this red-and-gold masterpiece, still resplendent in the original AMR livery, is among the lots for Bonhams’ annual Members’ Meeting sale on Sunday, March 19th.
Serious Blue Oval lovers can expect to part with somewhere in the region of £200,000 - £250,000 for this 1.6-litre, 878kg red-and-gold racing icon, complete with paperwork from Essex County Council confirming its authenticity and Ford Motor Company history.

LHD 65 S

Is it finally happening - the big crash, queue article 50, sell sell sell... and a mk1 cooper may just finally fall into my financial reach...

being exported in ckd form and assembled in portugal wont do it any favours, and after all it is only a 'guide price' and should go for a fair bit more, just my opinion.

The fact it is still LHD might put a few off but SWVA's last Cooper S estimate was over £20k below the final selling price with commission.

There has been/is a lot of moody crap being advertised from the Iberian peninsular so caveat emptor.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.

Dont think so yet, drip fed supply of Cooper S's pushed prices up, now everyman and his dog are selling them at £40k puts a cap on the market.
