Held at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford last week, H&H Classics’ first physical auction since lockdown restrictions began to ease was a great success. 99 of the 124 cars on offer found new homes resulting in a sell through rate of 80% and a £2.8m gross. The company has been staging ‘online only’ auctions throughout the pandemic but was delighted at the response from clients to a more traditional sale. A few notable results are shown below:
1952 Bentley MKVI 4.5 Litre Drophead Coupe – Sold for £100,000
An older restoration and 1 of just 57 such cars bodied by Park Ward to its design number 99, the drophead coupe was among five Bentley MKVI to sell at IWM Duxford.
No less elegant in its way was the 1952 Daimler DB18 Special Sports Drophead Coupe which sold for a record breaking £44,850 (over twice its pre-sale estimate).
Another decidedly strong result was £94,300 for a gorgeous but rebodied 1929 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Tourer.
All four Ferraris on offer sold with the ex-Martin Brundle 2000 360 Modena commanding £63,250
All six Austin Sevens sold with the re-bodied van making £21,850.
It is amazing to think that the R107-series of Mercedes-Benz’s beloved SL convertible celebrates its 50th Anniversary in 2021. Finished in striking Pearl Grey with Grey leather upholstery the 1989 300 SL pictured above had covered a mere 43,500 miles from new and made £46,000
