Good prices at Barons’ sale

Jaguar XJS 4.0 sold for £11,000 – way above the top estimate of £6,000.


BARONS’ Christmas Classic Sale at Sandown Park saw a number of entries almost double estimate.

They included a 1964 Jaguar Mk 3.8 saloon, which achieved £41,800 (estimate £22,000-£28,000), and a 1994 Jaguar XJS 4.0 ‘facelift’ model that was bought for £11,000 (estimate £4,500-£6,000).

One hotly-contested lot was the ideal hot hatch – the 1989 Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI. With just one owner from new and only 21,000 miles on the clock, it sold for £26,620, racing past the £18,000-£22,000 estimate.

A 1934 Alvis Speed 20 SB – a challenging but enormously rewarding restoration project – achieved £13,200; and a 1954 Morris Minor 1000 that has spent 30 years under a dust sheet in a farm shed was offered at no reserve, selling for £1,450.

Hotly contested: 1989 Peugeot 205 1.9 GTI sold for £26,620.
