Low Mile Motors at Charterhouse Auction

The Charterhouse specialist auction of classic cars and motorcycles of nearly 90 vehicles on Monday 9th September has several low mileage time warp motors going under the hammer.

“No two classic car and motorcycle auctions are ever the same, which is probably why they are so well attended” Commented Matthew Whitney. “With such a wide variety of vehicles going under the hammer, it is no surprise that buyers all have their own agendas for bidding. Whether it is a model they owned previously or maybe could not afford when they were younger, one thing they all look for is a genuine low mileage vehicle, and in the auction on Monday we have a great selection of low mileage motors.”

In the low mileage motors, there is a 1981 Ford Capri 1600L. Bought buy the owner as a one year old ex-demonstrator with just 9,024 miles on the clock, he put on another 4,500 miles over the next 32 years. With many Ford Capri’s rusted away or been thrashed by boy racer drivers, this is a rare survivor estimated at £5,000-6,000.

Other low mileage vehicles include a 1989 Austin Metro 1.3 GS. With an automatic gearbox, tow lady owners and just 13,000 miles from new, it is estimated at £600-1,000 with the proceeds of the sale benefitting a charity, or for something a little more up market there is an Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante with 39,000 miles for £18,000-20,000 or a 1977 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow with just 39,000 miles for £10,000-12,000.

Viewing for this Charterhouse auction of classic car and motorcycles is at The Royal Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet on Monday 9th September from 9.00am, with the auction starting at 12.30pm.
