CARS FROM YESTERYEAR TAKE STAR BILLING AT SUMMER AUCTION

The 1929 Daimler 20/70 Type M Saloon has a pedigree associated with engineering excellence and was the Royal car to King George V in the year of its launch. With a price estimate of £15,000 to £20,000, this particular model would grace any small or large classic car collection and comes with a recent history file and photographs of its recent restoration. 

 
Also offered for sale is a 1950 Jowett Javelin, a car that caused a sensation in the motoring world when it was launched in 1947. The Javelin won various international rallies in its day and its fame has been consolidated over the years by several well-known media appearances, for instance as the heroine's car in the film Vera Drake and Father Clifford's inheritance in Ballykissangel. The Javelin presented in this month's sale is a saloon version and has been valued between £4,000 to £8000. It would certainly constitute a good, low cost entry to classic car ownership and would be a welcome addition to classic car events and rallies around the country.

 

The two cars come from the estate of the late Harry Clark, a classic car enthusiast from Barnard Castle in Co. Durham, and are complete with their original handbooks and current V5C registration forms.
