IT was standing room only at H&H Classics’ Buxton venue when the team of auctioneers, led by managing director Simon Hope, hammered away 70 cars in the 81-lot catalogue.
Top-selling car (pictured) was a wonderful 1967 Mercedes-Benz 250 SL ‘Pagoda’, estimated at £38,000 – £42,000, that left its upper guide price in tatters to eventually sell for £55,160.
Also doing well was the 1998 BMW M Coupé that, after some spirited bidding, achieved £26,320.
The pre-war Fords were led home by the 1928 Model A Roadster that went for £17,360, just one of an impressive line-up of Model As and Ts that flanked the historic Pavilion Gardens venue, all of which found new owners.
H&H’s next auction will be at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, on April 15 and will feature another broad selection of high-quality classic cars and motorcycles.
