You can be sure of Shell

To kick start the New Year, Charterhouse will be selling a large Shell collection in their Classic Car, Motorcycle and Automobilia auction on Sunday 13th February at The Footman James Restoration Show.

Consigned from a Somerset fuel suppliers, the collection has been amassed over the last 50 years and includes many enamel signs, petrol pump globes, prints, advertising and related items estimated to sell for several thousands of pounds.

“It is a comprehensive collection, the likes of which rarely come to the market.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “It’s quite amazing to think that they have been in only one family ownership for the past several decades and will now go to only their second owner.”

Also entered in this sale is a 1973 Ford Escort Mexico Historic Group 2 rally car from a Cornish client. This has been fully rebuilt from a bare shell with receipts of over £60,000 and if offered for auction at a fraction of the re-build cost. This will be a turn key solution for any budding competitor in historic rallying and would enable them to compete immediately without having to go through the expense of having to source and rebuild a similar car. 

For further information regarding this auction, or for advice on how to enter a vehicle or automobilia, please contact Matthew Whitney, Head of Department, at Charterhouse, The Long Street Salerooms, Sherborne, Dorset DT9 3BS, 01935 812277
