The Barons sale, to be held on February 10, is headlined by a Phaeton-bodied 1926 Rolls-Royce Phantom One. The car, which currently has a long wheelbase, dual cowl, phaeton body with additional, occasional seats in the passenger compartment, and a demountable auster screen comes supplied and fitted with a genuine Spirit of Ecstasy mascot, dated 1911... a rare item in itself. (Estimate: £35,000-£45,000).Another entry worth taking a look at is the 1928 Pontiac Six Doctor's Coupe, believed to be the only surviving example in the world. Discovered in Arkansas in the early 1990s, it was subjected to a full restoration by Charles McGarrah, using all original, factory supplied parts, to maintain complete originality. It is offered complete with a new 6V battery and an original Poster Advert from The Saturday Evening Post of September 1st 1928, which shows this model, in the exact same livery. (Estimate: £12,000-£15,000).Other notable lots include a 1965 Jaguar E-type S1 4.2 roadster with original factory hardtop (estimate £30,000-£40,000), a very striking 1959 Ford Skyliner Retractable (£15,000-£17,000), and a magnificent 1997 Bentley Turbo RL (estimate £14,500-£16,000). And those looking for a starter classic or a future classic with real character have three to choose from - a lovely little 1973 Volkswagen Beetle 1302S LHD, which has covered just 21,000 miles from new (estimate £4000-£5000), an immaculate 1984 Citroen 2CV6 Dolly Special (£3000-£4000) and a 1996 Rover Mini Sprite (£2500-£3500).
