Perth Classic Auction Receiving National Attention
The quarterly Classic Vehicle Auctions held at Morris Leslie’s historic Errol Airfield, have been steadily growing since their inception during 2012, and now they are gaining global attention with entries and enquiries from across Europe and the United States, with over 800 people accessing the website daily.
So why is the forthcoming March 7th Auction creating such interest, after one look at the online catalogue it becomes very apparent with entries such as a beautiful and much sort after 1948 Hooper bodied Rolls Royce Silver Wraith, estimated at £30000 - £40000, a totally nut and bolt restored during 2013, prize winning 1969 Morris Minor 1000, estimated at £6500 - £7500 and an extremely rare Jaguar 420G resplendent in superb Willow Green coachwork with a warranted 19000 miles from new, estimated at £15000 - £20000.
Then there is an international contingent with a very unusual 1967 Ford Corsair V4 Deluxe, and a breath taking 1942 Willys Jeep MB Sript which has recently been the subject of a 3 years nut and bolt restoration estimated £18000 - £20000. Major interest seems to revolve around a range of Triumph TR4 and TR250 sports cars which have returned to Britain from across the continent along with an iconic Austin Healey 3000 MK III estimated £25000 - £30000
Of the expected 150 entries one that deserves mention is 1992 Renault 5 Campus with an incredible 202 recorded miles from new, having had only one lady owner the Renault was only used for a few days, before it was involved in a minor car park altercation with a bollard at her local garden centre, after which she parked it up in her garage and gave up driving for good. The car has remained unused until 2014 when the lady died and the vehicle was disposed of as part of the deceased’s estate. The car is now fully re commissioned and passed its first ever MOT test showing 202 miles with obviously no advisories. This must surely be the lowest mileage and nicest example available anywhere.
