Biggest bargain at Barons on 28 February – against money spent rather than market values – was the 1985 Jaguar XJS-C that had been subject to a £60,000 nut and bolt
rebuild in the hands of its late owner, yet which sold for £8910. And even that was above estimate.
As predicted a nicely presented 1968 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda topped the results at Barons' Sandown Park outing on 28 February.
The Mercedes more than doubled the price achieved by the next best-sellers, a brace of 1954 MG TFs that sold for £17,500 and £16,800.
In fourth was a very fine 1986 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit that created a huge amount of interest and surged to £11,500.
The sale also offered a TWR XJ-S – a 1986 Jaguar Sport 6.0 with full TWR body kit – that made £5950.
The bright orange 1971 Volkswagen Bay Window Caravenette with Dormobile interior and ‘rock’n’roll’ bed sold for £8970.
