The ‘Beast from the East’ was kicked well and truly into touch as the Barons’ Classic Winter Warmer sale at Sandown Park on February 27 commenced.

A packed house saw the top price on the day achieved by a fully dismantled 1963 Jaguar E-type S1 3.8 roadster in need of complete restoration. This soared above top estimate, selling for £56,650. The successful bidder, who will receive their new acquisition in rather a large number of crates alongside the chassis and body panels, now has what promises to be a very rewarding project ahead of them.

The lively atmosphere in the saleroom resulted in brisk bidding – echoed by the activity on the phones and internet – and the result was a good start to Barons’ 2018 sale calendar.

Other notable lots included the 1980 Ford Escort XR3 – one of the original media launch cars – which sold for £16,830, and a 1987 Mercedes 230 CE G-Wagon. This luxury 4×4 is a none-runner, having been stored for many years, and was offered at no reserve. Either the cold weather or the established appeal of this particular model inspired the subsequent bidding, and it sold for £12,320.

A true labour of love, the 1970 MG Midget Mk3 Supercharged in the sale has been immaculately restored, including a new Heritage body-shell and a rebuilt and supercharged engine. It more than doubled the initial estimate, selling for £12,320.
