Posted on September 9, 2014 | By Editor | Leave a response
The leading lights at the sale were a pair of MGAs, one Coupe, one Roadster. The Roadster, which had been fitted with a five-speed gearbox, chrome wire wheels, exhaust, brightwork and seats fetched £19,110 including buyer’s premium. It was closely followed by a 1958 Roadster. The Roadster enjoyed a full restoration in 2007 and boasted a significant history file. It sold for £17,325.
Naturally, the MGB was well represented with a 1973 BGT V8 achieving the best price at £11,550. MoT’d until June 2015, the Glacier white V8 had been fully rust protected from new and had covered 90,000 miles from new with extensive service history dating back as far as 1980.
At the other end of the scale a 1974 chrome-bumper GT with MoT until August 2015 sold for just £2,310. The best-priced roadster was a rubber-bumpered example, with MoT until June 2015. Finished in pageant blue, it fetched £3,885.
A quartet of Midgets, all 1500s, sold for between £1,400 and £3,675. The cheapest, included a large and detailed history and MoT until May 2015 while the most expensive, a 1977 British Racing Green example made £3,675.
The lone MG saloon in the sale was a 1957 Magnette ZB Varitone, which sold for £6,930. It included MoTs and invoices dating back to the 1970s, with the previous keeper having owned the car since 1965.
MG sales totalled £91,945 with only two cars from this manufacturer remaining available once the auction closed.
