BARONS ENDS YEAR ON HIGHThu, 10 Oct 2013 00:00:00 -0700
AUCTION HOUSE Barons has celebrated a successful classic car auction with 44 successful sales and a 1959 Aston Martin DB MKIII DHC making £175,000.
The classic Aston had belonged to the same family since it was three-months-old and was joined by another DB MKIII example, a rolling restoration project that fetched £70,000.
Another notable sale was a "time-warp" 1970 Ford Escort Delux MkI, which had covered just 2,600 miles in 40 years.
“Our Yuletide Sale is always popular, and I know that at least a couple of the lots are destined to be surprise Christmas presents for some very lucky enthusiasts,” said Barons’ MD, Laurence Sayers-Gillan.
“With 65 per cent of the cars on offer sold, this was an excellent result and brings 2010 to very healthy close.”
