H&H at Syon Park, London 24th May 2006



1929 Duesenberg Model J Convertible Coupé


1955 Aston Martin DB2/4

Two pre-war cars star at H&H’s next sale in London, at Syon House the scene of a successful sale in 2005. Both the 1929 Duesenberg Model J and 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K are estimated in the £100ks, however this 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 can be had for £34,000 – 38,000.

The 1929 Duesenberg Model J Convertible Coupé, at £400,000 – 500,000, was first owned by by H. Leslie Atlass whose fortune was based on a buy-out of his radio company by CBS. He later swapped the car for another ‘Duesie’ with a scion of the Wrigley chewing gum family.



The 1935 Mercedes-Benz 500K Kombination Roadster, £275,000 – 325,000 carries rather elegant bodywork by the English coachbuilder Wendovers on its RHD chassis and is notable for its wartime ownership by the distinguished Battle of Britain Hurricane pilot William 'Willy' Henry Rhodes-Moorhouse.



1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT


1966 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Iii Drophead Coupe

Other cars of interest to Classic Driver readers are three sporting 1950s ACs: a 1957 AC ACE Bristol, £65,000 – 75,000, a 1954 AC Aceca Bristol, £32,000 – 38,000, and a 1963 AC Greyhound, £18,000 – 20,000. There are also H&H’s usual selection of Jaguars, including a rather fine 1951 Jaguar XK120 OTS Roadster at £42,000 – 44,000.

And finally with the weather improving by the day, why not treat yourself to a car once bought by Maurice Saatchi (of advertising fame), the 1966 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Drophead Coupé at £50,000 – 60,000?

The Sale will be held at Syon House, Syon Park, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8 8JF, UK.
