This small but perfectly formed auction of classic cars and motorbikes takes buyers on a tour of 20th-century motoring history - on two wheels and four.
You’ll find five big names - Bedford, Jaguar, Harley Davidson, AC Buckland, and Scott – and exhibition condition vehicles. All lots are ready to ride or drive.
Lot 1001, the AC Buckland Sports Tourer, has a guide price of £25,000-£30,000. Registered on the 1st January 1950 in Southport with licence plate GFY707, the car was manufactured in 1949.
Purchased in 2014 by the vendor, it’s now in showroom condition. Although not required, the vehicle recently passed its MOT with only 350 miles on the clock since its ‘nuts and bolts’ restoration. Finished in Opaline/British Racing Green with cream leather interior, it comes with some spares and a memory stick of restoration photos.
Lot 1002 is a classic 1951 Bedford K Type 30-40cwt truck, registration number NSJ753 with a guide price of £12,000-£15,000. With a 6-cylinder 3519cc petrol engine, 12v electronics and a 4 speed gearbox it can reach 50-55mph. Brown with red chassis, it runs well and its paintwork is good with no rot although some crazing to the bonnet lacquer. Beautifully cared for by the vendor over the last 25 years, this vehicle is worth a view.
Our third car lot is 1003, a classic Jaguar convertible with a guide price of £8,000-£12,000. This silver Jaguar XK8 4litre V8 convertible, T861CBD, was first registered on the 7th April 1999. Its MOT expires on the 27th July 2021, and the odometer reading is 63540 miles. There’s a full service history and it’s been with one former keeper.
The first of the two bikes we are offering up is lot 1004. It’s a rare Harley Davidson SS 125cc motorbike, with a two stroke engine and a guide price of £3,000-£5,000. Registration is OUG160P, and registration date is 10th May 1976. In the early 70s, Harley’s lost out to an influx of well-built small Japanese motorcycles. They responded by building smaller models, which were air brushed out of Harley Davidson history - making this illusive bike even more attractive. Last on the road in 2005, the old MOT records 3837 miles on the clock. Runs and rides well.
The final star of the auction, lot 1005, is a classic motorcycle with a guide price of £7,000-£10,000. This Scott Flying Squirrel SV7033 was manufactured 1929, 500cc and is a beautiful and rare bike with show potential.
