Classic Car Auctions’ next sale at the Warwickshire Event Centre on the 25th May, will be offering some wonderful British classics owned or known of by the same family for many years.
Riley, Triumph and MG, some of the greatest names of their time, will be represented with a 1933 Riley Nine, a 1967 Triumph TR4A and a 1955 MG Magnette ZA all with long term connections, as well as a 1972 Triumph TR6.
Offered for sale is a 1933 Riley Nine Special Four Seat Tourer. The current owner hand crafted a bespoke 4 seat Tourer bodywork with a folding roof to the chassis of what was once the most successful light sporting car of its time, the Riley Nine. Extensively used for touring and trips to the Continent, the car has been in the same ownership for 19 years. The 1087cc Twin Cam engine was subjected to a recent rebuild and comes with a partial history. Estimated at £12,000 to £15,000 a great little car for the summer.
A stunning 1967 Triumph TR4A presented in Wedgewood Blue and 10 years in the current ownership is being offered for sale. In 2014 the car underwent a body off restoration and repaint which has been comprehensively documented and included in its extensive history file. With a new interior, wheels, tyres, engine, gearbox, overdrive, brakes, and suspension reconditioned, this is as good a car as you could hope for. Estimated at £25,000 to £30,000 it also comes with the desirable Surrey Top.
The first monocoque car to bear the MG badge was the Magnette ZA which was also the fastest saloon in period. This 1955 MG Magnette ZA has been known by the same family for the past 25 years, it was once owned by a family friend and has had a total of five former keepers. Finished in Maroon with Tan vinyl and a service history from 1955 to 1961 and then from 1983 to date, the car will also come with its original seats. This is a lovely car estimated at £8,000 to £10,000.
Rebuilt in 2012, this 1972 Triumph TR6 CP benefits from matching numbers and supported by a Heritage Certificate and original line build specification sheet. When rebuilt it was subject to the usual upgrades and fitted with fuel injection rated at 150bhp, the car also has overdrive on third and fourth gears. A lovely example faithfully restored and estimated at £16,000 to £18,000.
Gary Dunne, Classic Car Auctions auction manager commented: “It is always a pleasure to have these wonderful classics alongside more modern and what are becoming future classics.”
“The MG Magnette has a lovely story to it and I am sure will be a welcome addition to anyone’s collection. The Riley Nine is also an intriguing car with the body having been crafted by its current owner.”
“The two Triumphs are always popular cars to own and with the summer coming along, everyone needs a classic convertible to cruise around in!”
“With 120 lots consigned so far, we have a large selection of cars to suit all requirements and we are still accepting cars up to next weekend.”
