English classic cars under the hammerComment on this story
Auctioneer Stephan Welz & Company has announced the inclusion of four distinctive lots in the Collectable Cars section of its Johannesburg Auction set for next week.
The event will open with a 1946 Jaguar Mk IV sedan, complete with wire wheels, a sliding roof and a 3.5-litre engine. This fully-restored classic is expected to fetch between R240 000 and R280 000. Second, a 1993 model Bentley Turbo R luxury sedan in excellent condition will go for between R450 000 and R480 000, say the organisers.
There’s also a 1958 Austin Healey 100/6 BN-4, estimated to sell for between R320 000 and R350 000, a fine example of a vehicle notable for durability and power. The well known three-litre was originally supplied with extra rear seating to accommodate a sporting family Sunday drive.
A Ferrari Memorabilia Collection, expected to go for around R25 000, offers an excellent opportunity for collectors of the legendary brand. Included are a Ferrari banner; a large out-of-print poster of Ferrari cars, numerous Ferrari books, brochures and pictures, a small Dino tin gas pump, a Momo Volante F1 Ferrari steering wheel (no 88/14), a labelled bottle of Champagne and a ceramic bottle model of a 246 Dino.
The auction will take place from Tuesday 24 to Thursday 26 April at 13 Biermann Avenue in Rosebank. - Star Motoring
