Evans’ Ferrari will be a highlight at Barons

| 16 Jul 2012

A Ferrari that once belonged to radio DJ Chris Evans looks set to be the top lot at Barons’ Sandown sale tomorrow.

The 1989 328GTS is estimated to make between £32-36,000 and is one of the last of those models to be equipped with ABS. It has covered just 25,000 miles and comes with a comprehensive service history.

At the other end of the price scale is a 1969 Riley Elf for £2500-3500. In 1970 the MkIII was stolen from a central London street and used as an unlikely getaway car in an armed robbery. It was later recovered unmarked apart from a bullet that was left on the back seat. It has remained in the same owner’s hands since and has only 57,000 miles on the clock.

American cars will also feature: a 1961 Chrysler 300G, which was restored by Chrysler UK and displayed in their head office is expected to make £22-25,000.

A Ford Thunderbird Convertible (£17-20,000) is another Stars and Stripes option; it comes with a 45rpm record player. Meanwhile, a 1965 Ford Mustang 289 Convertible is expected to raise £21-24,000.

More affordable classics up for grabs include a 1966 MG Midget (£2500-3500), a 1978 MGB roadster (£2750-3500), a 1981 Triumph Spitfire 1500 (£3250-4,000) and a 1989 BMW 320i Cabriolet (£1500-2000).
