Ford pop star to be sold at Castle Combe


A 1959 Ford Consul Mk2 that played a starring role in a succession of music videos is coming up for sale with Richard Edmonds on 30 June.

The car – wearing an estimate of £8-10,000 – can apparently be spotted in the Blow Monkeys 1986 hit Don’t be scared of me the Moody Blues' Wildest dreams and Elton John’s Guess that’s why they call it the blues.

It is unlikely to be the star lot, though, with much of the pre-sale interest surrounding a 1910 Panhard-Levassor that was once a taxi and was latterly recovered from a Gloucestershire barn.

Other lots at the Castle Combe sale include a brace of 1970 Jaguar E-types, one up for £28-32k (above) and the other, an S2 4.2 at just £5-6000. For that money you know what to expect!

Also potentially interesting are a 1928 Amilcar saloon, a 1929 Rolls Royce Phantom I (below), a 1935 Rolls Royce 20/25 saloon, a Frogeye Sprite, a Humber Super Snipe, and a 1924 Dodge.
