Over 160 ‘everyman’ classics lead CCA’s Birmingham sale
Auction at Classic Car and Restoration Show includes 21 fast Fords, a Renault Sport Spider and music producer Mickie Most’s Rolls-Royce Mulliner Park Ward Coupé
More than 160 ‘everyman’ classics will feature in this month’s Classic Car Auctions sale at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show, including 21 fast Fords.
The March 24-25 auction at the Birmingham National Exhibition Centre will include a pair of 1987 Sierra RS Cosworths. A totally original three-door with only 26,000 miles, and a recently restored example described as being in ‘concours condition’, are considered to be among the finest examples consigned by the auction house. The two lots carry estimates of between £45,000-£55,000.
Two 1987 Capri 280 Brooklands are also available, one being a carefully maintained example estimated at £16,000-£20,000. The other is a Turbo Technics, at £22,000-£26,000. Three Injection Specials complete the model line-up.
An extensively restored 1979 Escort RS2000 Custom carries a pre-sale fee of £24,000-£28,000. Meanwhile, a 1989 RS Turbo II that has covered just over 4,000 miles in 11 years could fetch up to £18,000. Marking the lower end of the spectrum is a 1984 Fiesta XR2 for £6000 and a late-production 1980 Escort MkII 1600 Sport estimated at £8000.
Lots from other marques include an 8000-mile 1997 Renault Sport Spider for around £25,000 and a 1969 Rolls-Royce Mulliner Park Ward Coupé formerly owned by music producer Mickie Most.
Gary Dunne, sales manager of Classic Car Auctions, said: ‘I’d love to mention all of the fantastic fast Fords on offer at our next sale, but there are simply too many! Indeed, demand for fast Fords was one of the big success stories last year, and I’ve no doubt this will continue with our first sale of 2018.’
He went on: ‘With such a large collection on offer, I’d urge fans of the classic Blue Oval to make a beeline for our sale.’
