Coys at Ascot, 2 October 2010 - Preview



1951 Jaguar XK120 Roadster - £65,000 - 75,000

Prior to its Padova and season-ending London sales, Coys will offer more than 60 classics in Ascot, just outside the Capital.

The catalogue ranges in age from a 1930 Boyle Valve Special Two-Man Indy Car (‘Refer Department’) to a right-up-to-date, 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS 6.2 (£32,000 - 35,000).

Collectors looking for a usable classic from mainly British manufacturers will have much to choose from. The most numerous manufacturer is Jaguar, with eight entries.

For £68,000 - 75,000, fixed-head coupé E-type buyers can bid on an Opalescent Silver Blue 1965 4.2 Series 1 car, with just 16,572 miles from new. The ‘time-warp’, matching numbers coupé even comes with the original whitewall tyres which were replaced during recommissioning following storage.



1952 Bentley Mk VI 2 Door Razor Edge Coupé - £78,000 - 88,000


1960 Truimph TR3A Works Specification Rally Car, FIA papers - £18,000 - 24,000

There are also three other Series 1 E-types, a 1966 2+2 (£18,000 - 21,000), a 1963 3.8 Litre FHC (one owner from new, £32,000 - 37,000) and a 1965 4.2 Litre Roadster for £28,000 - 35,000.

Marque rival Austin-Healey is represented by a 1958 100/6 BN6 Roadster for £35,000 - 40,000, while there will be no fewer than six Astons at Ascot.



1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II - £4000 - 6000

Joining the 1965 Aston Martin DB5 (£170,000 - 190,000) will be, among others, a 1993 Virage Volante ‘Wide Body’ for £38,000 - 45,000 and an early (1969) DBS, attractively priced at £18,000 - 22,000.

On the Italian front, there’s just one Ferrari, a 1985 400i for £14,000 - 18,000, and an interesting 1988 De Tomaso Longchamp GTSE. The latter, a RHD car in metallic brown, is estimated at £45,000 - 55,000 and has just 700km, ‘delivery mileage’ as the catalogue suggests, on the clock.
