Barons' October 21 sale springs more than a few surprises...

32 cars sold at Barons' sale at Sandown Park on October 21, including a beautiful 1953 Austin Healey 100/4, which was bought for £26,273 by an enthusiast bidding online through the iBidder system.Barons'MD Laurence Sayers-Gillan commented: 'We were generally pleased with the way the sale went, given the current financial climate.  Some cars achieved particularly good prices - notably the Caterham 7 Supersprint, which went for nearly double the estimate - and it was great to have another online buyer.

'We've used the iBidder process for just two sales, and sold to online bidders both times. Understandably, people are cautious at present, but there is still a steady market out there, and well presented cars, sensibly priced, continue to find new homes.'
