AUCTION RESULTS – How did our picks do? SWVA JANUARY 2017 CLASSIC CAR SALE

goodshoutmedia-auction-results-featuredThe South West Vehicle Auctions January Sale was one of the first big sales of 2017, and we published a preview in the week leading up to the event… but how did the sale go, and how did our picks perform?

The auction took place on January 27th 2017. View the full lot list HERE.

Here’s our picks from the upcoming sale, and why:

First up, and our first love… the BMWs:

Lot 23 – BMW 840ci – 166,000 miles – £4,900 – £5,750

Our Pre-Auction Comment: Big miles but it’s the desirable 4.0 litre in a beautiful colour…

SOLD £5,508

Lot 33 – BMW E30 325i Cabriolet – 109,815 miles – £2,500 to £3,000

Our Pre-Auction Comment: 6 Cylinder with arguably the wrong gearbox and definitely the wrong wheels…

SOLD £4,320

Lot 35 – BMW E30 318is Coupe – 169,724 miles – £1,900 to £2,500

Our Pre-Auction Comment: Again, big miles, but our tip is for this one to smash it’s estimate

SOLD £5,400

(Smashed the estimate, like we said it would)

Lot 47 – BMW E30 318 Cabriolet – 71,000 miles – £4,000 to £5,000

Our Pre-Auction Comment: Lovely looking car all round and again, we think it’ll smash that estimate

SOLD £6,480

(Smashed the estimate, like we said it would)

Our next picks are a couple of big Benz’s:

Lot 37 – Mercedes-Benz W123 230 TE – 134,000 miles – £2700 to £3200

Our Pre-Auction Comment: W123 estates in good condition are getting hard to find. Could be a sound investment here.

SOLD £4,968

Lot 46 – Mercedes-Benz W140 S600 V12 Coupe – 102,000 miles – £5,000 to £6,000

Our Pre-Auction Comment: A properly built, V12 coupe with reasonable mileage? Yes, we’ll have this thanks. Oh, and howmanyleft.co.uk think there are just 24 of these in the country!

SOLD £5,832

Lot 52 – Mercedes-Benz W126 560 SEC Coupe – 104,150 miles – £2,500 to £,3000

Our Pre-Auction Comment: To put it simply, how many of these are coming up for sale? howmanyleft.co.uk says there are only 180 remaining. More than you thought? But where are they all?

And finally… A couple of plucky Brits:

Lot 14 – MG F Roadster – 55,955 miles – £1,200 to £1,500

Our Pre-Auction Comment: This is an interesting one because it’s a low mileage iconic car. That red, those wheels, isn’t that just what springs to mind when you think of an MG F? Our bet is that this car smashes the estimate.

SOLD £1,025

Lot 67 – Rover Mini Cooper – 77,164 miles – £2,500 to £3,000

Our Pre-Auction Comment: We’ve chosen this lot for the same reason we’ve highlighted the MG. It’s the iconic colour combination and specification for a late model Rover Mini Cooper. Definitely one to watch.

SOLD £5,076
