Top Marques at Charterhouse

Charterhouse Auctioneers have been instructed to sell a collection of classic cars on site at West Pennard, Somerset, on Thursday 21st August.

“It is a fantastic collection of cars including Aston Martin, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Range Rover and other prestige marques through to a Kaiser-Willys Jeep painted in Khaki green complete with an ammunition trailer!” Commented Matthew Whitney.”The client has been a regular buyer at our classic car auctions over the past 12 years, and has now decided to have a change of direction and instructed us to sell the collection at short notice on site at West Pennard near Glastonbury.”

Star cars in the collection include a 1930 Rolls Royce Phantom II Sedanca de Ville. With a stylish Art Deco style body by Windovers, this car was featured at the BP Paris Salon car show and at The Olympia Motor Show in 1930, and is now estimated at £70,000-80,000. Also carrying the same estimate is an Aston Martin DB4. One of 6 Aston Martins entered in the auction, this is iconic car now only comprises the body shell, engine and interior parts, but with fully restored DB4s commanding substantial six figure sums, it will be a worthwhile and rewarding project for the new owner.
