Barons posted a positive sale, with over 80% of its lots sold...

Sandown Park was a busy place on September 8, as buyers made their way to Barons’ British Heritage and Classic Cars sale. And, when the hammer fell on the final lot, over 80% of the cars on offer had found new homes, with spirited bidding pushing a number of lots well over estimate.

Highlights included the LHD 1959 MG TF1500, which sold for a whisker under £23,000, while a lively battle ensued between bidders in the hall and no less than seven on the phone for the 1961 MGA 1600 FHC (£9266). And a magnificent 1961 MkII Jaguar achieved £31,231, demonstrating yet again that beautifully-presented cars have a ready market. The sale also saw one of the oldest cars that Barons’ has ever sold go under the hammer – a sprightly 1918 Buick E-Six-49 which sold for  £13,161.50.

The sale was a very positive introduction to Barons for the company’s new Director of Business Development, Julian Shoolheifer, former head of Sotheby’s and Cheffins’ motor car departments.

Barons’ Managing Director, Laurence Sayers-Gillan, said, 'It was a busy sale that achieved good results, so was a great first Barons’ experience for Julian. We now look forward to our Classic & Collectors’ Car sale at Sandown Park on October 25-26 and to working with Julian to develop Barons yet further.'
