Our favourite Vanguard racer and transporter failed to sell at H&H on 30 October, but the most phenomenal result was the incredible £22,400 paid for (at best) half an Aston Martin DB2/4.
Though a viable restoration, the bidding war over the 1955 remains seemed to surprise even the auction house, which had estimated the value in the region of £6k.
Other lots that looked interesting included a 1982 Lancia Beta 2000 coupé that made just over £4k and a road-legal Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow for £3277.
High-seller was an elegant Brough Superior that brought in £67,800.
For us, the bargain of the auction was a Jaguar Mk1 3.4 that sold for £10,080 with document issues, but good history.
