Barons will auction off a pair of barn-find Jaguar E-type Series 2s during their July 17 auction at Sandown Park, offering an interesting prospect to those interested in a new project vehicle.

Expected to sell for £15,000-£20,000 apiece, the pair of Jags are a tempting purchase for anyone brave enough to take on the extensive restoration work required to bring them back to full health.

A 1969 manual example in red comes as a complete car with working engine but requires extensive body restoration, while a white 1970 automatic model with full-length Webasto sunroof comes with a triple-carburettor engine that needs an overhaul.

For those already working on an E-type project of their own, an entire bodyshell plus parts are being sold as a lot, expected to fetch around £6000-£10,000 come Tuesday.

Not every Jaguar E-type in this auction requires TLC aplenty, however. A matching numbers 1967 E-type Series 1.5 2+2 in Dark Blue, with 40,160 miles on the clock, is ready to drive away, MoT still in date. With no restoration needed in this case, £49,000 to £54,000 is expected to be where the winning bidder’s price will fall.

Barons has also embraced a summer theme for their July auction, with no less than 23 convertibles passing over their auction block on Tuesday.

A 22,300-mile 1970 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda imported from sunny Florida tops the convertibles billing with a £60,000-£80,000 estimate, which handily comes with its original hardtop to cope with more traditional British weather.

Those looking for something older will likely be interested in a 1925 Riley Redwing, believed to be one of only four ever built. It features a 1.5L 10.8hp side valve engine mated to a four-speed non-synchro gearbox capable of 70mph, or 90mph with a downhill stretch of road and tailwind!

Those less flush with cash still have plenty of lots worth considering. A 1960 Austin Mini fitted with an early Cooper Silver Seal 998cc engine is estimated to sell for £13,000-£16,000, while some cars are estimated to go for as little as £1500, should a V6-powered Rover 827 Sterling be of interest to you.

Reaching 46,000 thanks to the Instagram love at Olympia

We’ve had an amazing weekend at Olympia Historic Automobile Fair and Auction.

With our 1956 Jensen 541 taking pride of place beside the auction area, our 1972 Jaguar E-Type V12 attracting the largest crowd, our 1972 Fiat 500L seemed to get the most photographic attention and our 1959 Austin Healey Sprite getting the best feedback from auctioneer Guy, the weekend couldn’t have been better for Bridge Classic Cars.

Not only did we receive fantastic feedback over the weekend but a quick search on Instagram showed that our cars were potentially seen by over 46000 Instagram followers. We can not thank the visitors of Olympia and the Instagram members enough for their amazing photos.

“Forever handsome, thanks to styling that does not date, Volvo P1800s were popular with ACA entrants and buyers alike, with all four selling out. With lots of history and MOTs to check out during its 91,507 displayed miles, this 2011 restored 1971 P1800 coupe achieved £15,120, which was top estimate money.”

Classic Car Weekly – January 2013

Our 1973 Aston martin AMV8 featured in Classic Car Weekly in January 2013.

‘Fancy an Aston Martin but don’t have much dosh? Well, if you’re handy with the spanners, ACA’s barn-stored V8 automatic project could be just the thing to keep you occupied this year. V8’s aren’t the cheap DB alternatives they once were, but their olde-worlde performance (and their often hit and miss build quality) remains, to many enthusiasts, as endearing as ever. Fresh out of a barn after a nine year slumber, don’t be surprised if the bidding on this example reaches its upper estimate.’
