Austin Healey 3000 MKII in Blue

1979 Porsche Leads A Busy Classic Auction

Another exciting Classic Car Auction was held in the Jim Clark Hall

Another exciting Classic Car Auction was held in the Jim Clark Hall at our Historical Errol Airfield Headquarters on the banks of the River Tay in Rural Perthshire. With an eclectic range of lots on offer from a 1940s Case tractors, along with a 1933 Austin Box 7, a 1937 Morris 8 and a 1948 Triumph 1800 Roadster moving on through the decades to the ever popular growing market of Modern Day Classics.

Noteworthy of the top sellers including a beautiful 1979 Gaurds Red Porsche 911 which created a great deal of bidding interest and achieved its estimate of £53,000. To find a more recent piece of history changing hands at the auction you only need to look to 2009 and the first ever Ginetta G40R to be built! This fabulous Signal Orange example, was used as the company’s PR car at launch and the hammer fell at £16,000 just meeting the lower end of its estimate and providing its new and enthusiastic owner with a great investment and something of a bargain.

With a large number of sales achieved across the Auction including a stunning 1960 Austin Healey Sprite MK1 restored to an exceptional standard, which had been the subject of a painstaking ground up restoration.

On a day that was full of energy and furious bidding from within the Auction Hall and across the Globe thanks to our online bidding facilities, one of the keenest battles fought over lots was that on the 1999 Land Rover Defender V8, a 50th anniversary special edition with only 17,012 warranted miles from new. The Defender cleared its upper estimate of £35K and went for an impressive £41,340!

Morris Leslie Vehicle Auctions’ next classic auction will be held on Saturday 25th November.
