This annual event is scheduled to take place on the 29th and 30th July with viewing on the 27th and 28th July and it promises once again to be a great occasion for classic car enthusiasts. Below is a selection of the cars that are going to be auctioned but you can visit the website of Silverstone Auctions to view more items.
Many of you will remember the Ford Capri. Well, a Ford Capri 280 Brookland built in 1987 is to be auctioned with an estimated price of between £35,000 to £45,000. It only has 14,680 miles on the clock and has had a total of four owners with the current one having had the vehicle for around 8 years. During that time the fantastic looking car has been refinished at a cost of over £10,000.
If you are a fan of Porsche then you might want to take a look at the Porsche 356 B Cabriolet that was manufactured in 1962. It has a 4-cylinder 1,600 cc engine and is left hand drive. It spent a number of years in the USA before ending up in Europe. It was restored in 2006 but not too long ago it had a bare metal respray in Metallic Silver. This classic car has an estimated price of £100,000 to £120,000.
Those of you who are Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts may like to view the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 190SL sports car with a 1,900 cc 4-cylinder engine producing 104 bhp. It was transported to Houston in Texas. Back in 1994 it was sold to a classic car restorer and brought back to the UK. It was restored in 2005 with great attention being paid to the detail of the car. It has an estimated price of £105,000 to £120,000.
There is a wonderful looking 1950 Healey Silverstone that has featured in a number of races. When it was sold in 1969 the purchaser paid £600 for the vehicle. It has been fully restored with the work being completed in 2003. The car has only done 10,501 miles and a mere 105 of these sports cars were built making it a very rare specimen. It has an estimated sale price of £165,000 to £185,000.
