South West Vehicle Auctions January Sale kicks off a packed 2017 calendar of classic car auctions, and with the weather predicted to make a turn for the worst and wallets still empty from Christmas, it will be interesting to see how the classic market starts the year.
SWVA offers a variety of classics, from the predictable to the slightly more unusual.
Here’s our picks from the upcoming sale, and why:
First up, and our first love… the BMWs:
Big miles but it’s the desirable 4.0 litre in a beautiful colour…
6 Cylinder with arguably the wrong gearbox and definitely the wrong wheels…
Again, big miles, but our tip is for this one to smash it’s estimate
Lovely looking car all round and again, we think it’ll smash that estimate
Our next picks are a couple of big Benz’s:
W123 estates in good condition are getting hard to find. Could be a sound investment here.
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!
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:
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.
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.
