CCA September 2016 Classic Car Sale Sale Session

Lot No. 401 - 1968 Ford Cortina 1600

Sold for: £1,870

Lotus Cortina look-alike... This 1600 Mk.2 Cortina was first registered in the UK before being exported to Ireland in 2006. We believe it was the subject of a restoration in the past but cosmetically the car now needs attention. Freshly MOT'd and with the signature Lotus green stripe and its wider wheels, this classic Ford could look really good with a little tlc.

Lot No. 402 - 1999 Maserati Quattroporte V8 Evoluzione

Sold for: £7,150

One of only 340 made...336bhp, twin-turbo 3.2-Litre V8, and an automatic gearbox. The fourth generation Quattroporte Evoluzione was available from March 1998 and was the first Maserati built under Ferrari's more efficient regime. This luxurious left-hand drive, Maserati Quattroporte V8 Evoluzione, is relatively unusual in the UK and not to be confused with other models, particularly the pre-'98 Quattroporte which was a much inferior car. This particular car has recently been imported from Japan with all taxes paid and is reading 72,539 kms (45,000 miles). Presented in White (Bianco Birdcage) with a delightful interior featuring Tan Leather, Coffee Suede, and Mustard carpets, this car is presented to Auction with an MOT valid until August 2017 and is now UK registered. At 'no reserve', this could be a very sensible way into Maserati motoring.    

Lot No. 403 - 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX STi

Sold for: £6,880

A great usable example...There have been seven noted versions of the WRX dating back from Subaru's original World Rally Cross staging vehicles. Subaru adopted the name "WRX" to stand for "World Rally eXperimental" (in some places WRX stands for "World Rally Cross") as all WRX versions (1992 to present) feature rally inspired technology, including all wheel drive, stiffened suspensions and turbocharged four cylinder engines. Presented to auction with an MOT until 5th January 2017 this a great example of the breed. This car has had one lady owner from new and has been maintained regardless of cost and comes with a very comprehensive history file to back up the mileage .  

Lot No. 404 - 1997 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL

Sold for: £6,050

Finished in deep Azurite Blue metallic with a matching top and a black leather interior that belies its mileage of 89,000, this 280SL feels hewn from solid. Mercedes-Benz SLs from the 1950s and 60s have continued to rise in value over recent years, putting them well out of  reach of many car enthusiasts, whereas the R129 SL series still represents great value for money.  Beautifully built, P208 BPG is filled with conveniences like a power-operated roof, pop-up roll-over bar and dual-range four-speed automatic gearboxes. Recently serviced, this lovely Mercedes is set to go.

Lot No. 405 - 1979 Ford Capri 2.0 Ghia

Sold for: £6,000

Family owned from new, just 26,000 miles and good history... This super Ford Capri has been enjoyed by the same family from new as the current owner's grandfather purchased this car brand new in 1979. With just two registered keepers in the Log Book, this Diamond White, 1979 Ford Capri 2.0 Ghia has travelled a mere 26,000 miles and has been owned by our vendor since 2001. Presented to Auction with an MOT certificate valid until June 2017 (no advisories), the car retains its original service book, with one stamp, manuals and a copy of the original 1979 logbook, together with a number of older MOTs and service invoices during its current ownership. We understand that the car was not driven for short periods of time, but has been used, albeit sparingly, for most years including this year. We understand that it has been garaged since new and is described as being in largely original condition having never been restored. What little surface rust has come through has been regularly addressed and the underside of the car is described as being very clean for its year.  With the search for good Capris gaining momentum, this lovely, low mileage 2.0 Ghia is not to be missed.  

Lot No. 406 - 1972 Alfa Romeo GT Junior

Sold for: £6,050

A grown up Junior...Lovely 1972, GT Junior that would make an ideal project!  This charming little Alfa Romeo has recently been imported from the dry climate of South Africa. Supplied with a UK NOVA number and South African registration documents, the car is offered without reserve and is being sold strictly as seen. The owner hopes to get the larger 1750cc engine running prior to the sale. The bodywork is presented in good condition and the shut lines look nice and original. There is some minor bodywork damage to the front of the car, carried out in transit, but it looks to be largely rust-free and an ideal candidate for a high-quality re-paint. The interior will require some minor fettling but the engine bay presents well. A unique opportunity to restore your very own Alfa Romeo.   

Lot No. 407 - 1995 Volkswagen Corrado 2.9 VR6 Storm Limited Edition

Sold for: £11,000

The same ownership from new and just 62,400 miles... Much coveted because of its good looks and great handling, Auto Express magazine hailed the Corrado as "one of VW's best-ever drivers' cars" at launch. The VR6 model was listed as one of the "25 Cars You Must Drive Before You Die" by the British magazine, Car and 'By far the most desirable version of the Corrado' by Auto Express. Classic Car Auctions are delighted to present this 1995 Volkswagen Corrado 2.9 VR6  'Storm' Limited Edition. A UK-only limited production model, the Corrado Storm differed from the standard car by having some discreet 'Storm' badging, a colour-coded front grille, an additional Storm badge on the gear gaiter surround, 15 inch BBS 'Solitude' alloy wheels, and some previously optional items, such as the leather heated front seats, fitted as standard. Only 500 were produced: 250 in Mystic Blue and 250 in Classic Green with a Cream leather interior as we have here.   The current owner has driven the car from new, it was first registered to his business and then he transferred ownership to himself some 18 years ago after selling the business, so although the records display two registered keepers, this car is effectively a one owner vehicle. It was issued with an MOT with no advisories in May and it was also serviced at this time with the details in the file along with the rest of the comprehensive service history. These cars are just too good to miss.

Lot No. 408 - 1978 Mercedes-Benz SL450

Sold for: £13,200

This right-hand drive 450SL was recently nicely restored and comes with all manuals, an extensive history, service details, and 17 MOTs up until 2009 at which point it went to Southern Ireland before returning in 2015. Finished in sparkling Silver with a Blue Tex interior and comes complete with soft and hard tops, fly screen, alloy wheels, and auxiliary front lights. Also included are the original set of 'Mexican Hat' style wheels. Having had 7 keepers and covered 66,008 miles, it's now UK registered and has an MOT until September 2017.

Lot No. 409 - 1991 Mitsubishi GTO Coupé

Sold for: £2,310

One of the best looking Japanese cars of its time...A great opportunity to acquire this rare vehicle. Mitsubishi GTO Coupé in Metallic Red,with 126,026 km (78,308 miles) on the clock, ECI Multi 3000cc V6 Engine with Auto box, Dual Temp a-c, 18" Alloy Sports Wheels, Audio/Cd Player, Leather Steering wheel, Cloth Seats, Electric Windows, Mirrors, and Seats, Cruise Control, 666 in the reg number, and many extras. Built for the home market in 1991 and imported into the UK in 2003.

Lot No. 410 - 1955 Ford Hot Rod

Sold for: £6,270

Not for introverts... This is a totally road legal 'Hot Rod' with fifties Ford underpinnings, fitted with a five-litre V8 engine and a four-speed automatic transmission. It is constructed from, what we believe, is a '23 T-Bucket kit from Speedway Motors of Lincoln, Nebraska. It's described as being in good condition throughout and much work has been done to keep it in good running order. One of the advantages of a car like this is that it's possible to closely inspect the chassis and running gear and this vehicle appears to be soundly engineered with lots of attention to detail. Light weight, lots of power, an open top and the chest-rattling thump of a big V8. A perfect recipe for fun.

Lot No. 411 - 2002 Jaguar XK8

Sold for: £6,820

This elegant, 4-litre V8 Jaguar XK8 'Grand Tourer is being auctioned with only 66,000 miles and is supplied with its original Jaguar service book stamped to verify.  Described by the vendor as "immaculate", the car is presented with a Liquid Silver exterior and swathes of black leather and wood veneer in the cockpit. Sharing its platform with the Aston Martin DB7, the value of this lithe cat is surely heading in only one direction? Please note that the private registration number is not included and retention proceedings have begun.

Lot No. 412 - 1969 Porsche 912 Targa

Not sold

A great example of the rare Targa...Showing some 68,365 miles on the odometer this 1969 912 had a full engine rebuild at 51,000 miles. The vendor informs us that the interior is original and in good condition for its age. Presented to auction with a fresh MOT.
