Highest bid for the Carlton Grey car was only £7150.00. Website doesn't say whether that is a sale or not.
Only about half the estimate surprisingly.
Looks like it was a sale. Bargain of the decade I think.

Does anyone want to confess...? :)

I'm very jealous either way....

That’s a great price for someone at that! (Certainly the purchaser)

Car shouts a 65, a removed body number also?

Single tank and swivel visors indicate 65

HOY sat unsold for 18 months, hence the D plate.

The standard wheels sit right in the arches? I thought S brakes made them sit proud? Could be wrong though.

Yes, that does seem to be something he does.

The detailing in that engine bay is so 'correct' it can only be an S.

Not sure about the wheels Tim.

Wheels are certainly out a bit. Odd that it only has one S rim.
And my estimate is £21,500
PS This is not in tomorrows sale, but the July sale. Also on offer then are a couple of A35s, one is an academy car, the other is a Speedwell
