DORSET Vintage and Classic Auctions’ autumn sale, to be held on Thursday 20th September at the Gartell Light Railway in Yenston, Somerset, will offer a diverse array of vehicles for collectors and enthusiasts of all marques.
Motorcycle aficionados will be catered for with a superb selection of machines suitable for all budgets. Notable entries among the line-up consigned to the sale include a rare 1969 Honda CB750, a very original 1974 Honda CB550 K1, a restored 1965 Lambretta, a 1965 BSA Lightning Rocket Clubman, a retro 1973 Mobylette Scooter, a beautifully original 1960 Triumph Tiger, a restored 1965 Vespa and an amazing 1959 BSA M21 with a Watsonian Sidecar, both of which are in completely original condition.
Recent consignments to the auction range from an iconic, part-restored Isetta 300cc Bubble Car and a very retro 1961 Rover P5 Mk 1A, to an unusual 1957 Beardmore Paramount Mk7 Taxicab and a pretty and rare 1938 Hillman Minx Drophead Coupe, thought to be only one of three in existence.
Sitting happily next to the 1989 AC Cobra, 1997 AC Ace Lotus Prototype and the 2000 AC Ace Prototype Ace of Spades will be a fine example of a Volvo 1800ES of 1972 vintage which has been enjoyed on many continental tours, together with an immaculate MG C Roadster, an elegant Mercedes-Benz 380SL and, for lovers of all things retro, a 1973 Ford Granada Mk and a 1996 Rover Mini Mayfair. A 1935 Austin Light 12/4 shooting brake should offer its new custodian a nice project over the winter months, ready for picnics in the spring.
The 200 lots of automobilia include several vast private collections of motoring literature, interesting vehicle spare parts and die-cast motor car models.
With the outstanding selection of historic commercials, DVCA’s autumn sale promises to be the best yet. For full information, please visit www.dvca.co.uk or telephone Brian Chant on 01963 363353.
