Motor Consultant Robert Armstrong Introduces Some of his Favourite Cars in the May Sale

30th April 2019. By Robert Armstrong

Beautifully preserved classic cars are set to star in the Motor Vehicle and Automobilia Sale on 12th May, amongst which two very low mileage examples shine.

A 1972 gold Rolls Royce Corniche II – the ultimate symbol of 1970s and 80s success – with only 28,000 miles on the clock is offered with an estimate of £35,000-45,000 (plus buyer’s premium). First introduced in 1971, the Corniche was in production for nearly 25 years, and whilst it was sought after by many, few could afford this exceptional machine. This impeccable example is a 70s time warp, with original fittings including a working eight-track audio system with tapes and a cherished number plate (CX65) that is guaranteed to appeal to collectors.

A quarter of the size, but with all the charm, is a 1989 beige Mini Mayfair, with only 4,830 miles on the clock. A true British icon, the car has had only one owner and has been dry-stored for most of its life. On offer with an estimate of £6,000-7,000 (plus buyer’s premium), this car has rare automatic transmission and has been described by the specialist as a ‘museum piece’.

A further offering in the 250-lot sale guaranteed to catch the eye of car enthusiasts is a 1927 Dodge Business Coupe – a rare find in the UK. In good original order, the Dodge is offered with an estimate of £8,000-9,000 (plus buyer’s premium).
