On Your Marques at Charterhouse Car Auction

The Charterhouse auction of classic and vintage cars being held at Sherborne Castle on Sunday 20th July has a fantastic selection of vehicles going under the hammer.

“It is probably the best auction of classic cars and motorcycles for some time in the West Country and we have somewhere approaching £700,000 of vehicles entered already with estimates from £1,000 up to £70,000.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “We have been incredibly busy advising clients not only throughout Dorset and Somerset, but also in Devon and right through Cornwall and have secured for auction restoration projects through to show standard cars so there is pretty much something for every enthusiast.”

Marques represented at the Charterhouse auction include Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Riley, Sunbeam, Lea Francis, Rover, Morris, Triumph, AC, Mercedes, Ford, Volvo, Land Rover, MG, Austin Healey, Buick, Bristol, Fiat, Daimler, Marcos, Norton, BSA and others. The oldest vehicle entered is a 1925 Riley Sports tourer at £38,000-42,000, with one the youngest cars a 1985 Citroen 2CV at £2,500-3,000, and the smallest car a 1973 Fiat 600L at £5,800-6,200. There are convertibles, coupes, saloon and other cars, and there are even two extremely early 4 x 4 Land Rover Series I, both from 1949.
