H&H Classics auctioned cars at The Pavilion Gardens, Buxton from 1993 to 2015 when the Octagon Theatre closed for refurbishment after their July sale in 2015 (video), but as of April 25th 2018 the company will be back again selling classic cars in this charming setting.
One of the many interesting cars to be offered by H&H Classic for sale is an MG TF 1250 like the one that was turned into a Corgi toy for children. It is estimated to sell for £24,000 to £26,000 rather more than the toy version. Launched in 1953 its engine was later boosted to a 1500 version.
Commenting on the company’s return to Buxton, Simon Hope, Chairman of H&H Classics, says: “We are delighted to be coming back to Buxton where we enjoyed so many successful sales over a period of 22 years. The Pavilion Gardens have a wonderful atmosphere and provide a great backdrop for classic cars. Indeed, Buxton was a stage on the RAC Rally for many years.”
H&H Classics will hold three sales at Buxton this year: April 25th, July 18th and November 28th.
The company’s most notable sale at Buxton was ex-Dr Benjafield 1934 Lagonda M45 Fox & Nicholl Le Mans Team Car which sold for £435,250 in July 2005.
