Classic Car Auctions Booming in the United Kingdom
The United Kingdom is full of classic car auctions, and one of the constants is Dorset Vintage & Classic Auctions.
The stars of the Autumn event for many will be two entirely contrasting motor cars: firstly, the recently recommissioned 1956 Lancia Aurelia B20GT Series 6 2.5 V6 Coupe with coachwork by Pininfarina; equipped with the desirable Nardi floor gear change and twin Weber carburettors, this superb Lancia is ready to be enjoyed and would make a suitable competition car for many historic events.
Secondly, a fascinating and rare 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 in well maintained, excellent condition. Complimenting the Aurelia and DeLorean will be a variety of pre-war motor cars, including a stunning 1934 Talbot AX 65 Six Light Saloon by Darracq with an extensive history, an imposing 1923 Wolseley Fourteen Tourer by Smith & Waddington, an impressive 1927 Buick 48 Master Six Opera Coupe, a well-maintained 1931 Morris Minor Two Seat Sports Tourer, a sporting 1925 Riley 11/40 12hp Four Seat Tourer, and a recently restored 1932 Austin 7 RN De Luxe Saloon.
With restoration projects and machines ready for the road, and even a c1949 Carters Electric Invalid Carriage restored to museum standard, there will be something to suit everyone’s tastes at the auction at Athelhampton House on the 16th of October.
