Online auction which has lots of very interesting cars. And the best is that many of them have No Reserve.

Not the generic auction stuff but Austin, Hillman, Morris, etc. And not saloons only but mainly the rarer Estates, Woodies, convertible versions.

IF..I were to bid, the only one I'd be interested is the first lot, {#501}, a Reliant Scimitar coupe....in tatty mechanical condition....so, no reserve.

Probably more 'honest' than many of the others might be?

I do have some spares for these.....including a NOS unused, V6 water pump....
But I prefer the appearance of the coupes, to the more common GTEs

I also note, an awful lot of 'estate' cars of various sorts..including some 'specials' not normally seen on certain models. [Farnham estates of various ages, for example?]

Love the big Austin woody’s, Hereford & Hampshire, and the A 125 & 135’s if only I had the room

If I was going to go for just one (which I have been told I am not Laughing ) it would be the Barnard woodie on the 1947 TA Alvis chassis. I have a bizarre fascination for woodies, and this one looks much more elegant than most - the next lot, another TA Alvis, looks quite ungainly in comparison.

some of the estimates seem a little low, the consul mk2 estate £6-8000 for an estate seems too cheap.
the other big 50's fords estaes also seem cheap.

I can't believe there can be many potential buyers these days who take auction estimates seriously. Even so, the auction houses still quote unrealistically low estimates in their catalogues.

I would like the Mulliner lightweight MkV1 Bentley saloon for £20 K but I know that unless it is a rot box it will go for a much higher price.

There are a lot of Woodies included in the sale.

I would go for the lovely 1937 Standard Flying 9 if I had the choice.
