A SUPERB mix of American classics will head the line-up at Dorset Vintage and Classic Auctions’ spring sale, to be held on March 3 at Athelhampton House, near Dorchester.
The star of the selection will be a stunning, concours-standard, prizewinning 1947 Buick Roadmaster Super Eight Series 50 that has been in the current family ownership for a number of years. The rare and impressive car has an estimate of £30,000 – £35,000.
Hot on the heels of the Buick is an equally splendid right-hand-drive 1956 Studebaker Champion-President. With a guide price of £15,000 – £17,000, the Studebaker boasts sleek, low and clean lines, is easy to drive and has been part of a private collection in recent years.
A stablemate of the Studebaker, the 1950 Ford V8 Pilot, is a wolf in sheep’s clothing; the genteel body conceals a Cosworth Scorpio V6 Engine that offers more than adequate power for those looking for a ‘street rod’! The Pilot has a guide of £16,000 – £18,000.
The 1965 Ford Mustang 289 V8 Fixed Head Coupe (£13,000 – £14,000), very smart in dark green metallic, is a good, straight example that will appeal to lovers of the iconic model.
A rare 1957 Pontiac Super Chief Series 27 ends the American selection; this fabulous car has a guide of £6,000 – £8,000 and requires some gentle TLC, but is certainly a worthy recipient.
