AN exciting selection of vintage and classic cars, automobilia and memorabilia was offered at Dorset Vintage and Classic Auctions’ final sale of 2016.
Heading the line-up was a 1959 Jaguar XK150SE fixedhead coupe that found a new home in the Midlands for £60,775, and an exceptional 1934 Austin 10/4 Cabriolet with a vast history, that sold for £20,625.
The surprise of the sale was the 1972 Austin Minor van that made £10,450; the 1974 MG B GT and 1971 MG B Roadster both headed off with their new custodians to Hampshire and selling for £9,130; the 1968 Daimler V8 250 Saloon now resides in Cornwall.
All motorcycles in the auction sold well, especially the very unusual 1964 Raleigh Runabout RM6 that made a healthy £1,128.
Among the other sales, a rare 1922 Fiat 501 Tourer by Melbourne Motor Bodies, in need of some mechanical attention, sold to a local enthusiast for £8,360.
The automobilia department offered an equally eclectic mix of ephemera; most notably, 12 War Service equipment glass road warning signs from Shaftesbury were purchased by a film company for £460, a 1929 American petrol pump fetched £470, and the auction house sold numerous sales brochures, handbooks (including Rolls-Royce and Bentley) and models.
