'Time-warp’ Peugeot gets bidders battling and Barons lines up a pre-production Jaguar for April

Barons’ 2019 sale calendar got off to a strong start with a 70% sale rate achieved at its Classic Winter Warmer Sale at Sandown Park on February 26. 48 of 69 cars on offer found new homes and bidding was brisk, not least for the ‘time-warp’ Peugeot 309 GTi. With just 131 warranted miles on the clock, this absolutely original, showroom-condition, one-owner machine was hotly fought-over before the hammer fell to the successful bidder, with the ‘Pug’ achieving well over top estimate at £14,520 - or £110 for each mile the car has covered in its lifetime.

 

Tim Gascoigne, Barons’ Auction Manager, was delighted with the day: "We're very happy with how the first sale of 2019 went. We sold 70% of the cars on offer, which is a great result in the current market. The £14,520 achieved for the Peugeot 309 GTi must be a record price for the model, and there were lots of other strong results, including £30,360 for the 1951 Jaguar Mk V, £18,260 for the Ginetta G33N, and £20,130 for the 1964 Morris Mini Cooper."

 

Rare ‘garden find’ pre-production Jaguar for April

Barons is now inviting entries for its Spring Classic Sale, taking place at Sandown Park on April 30. Early entries include a fantastic restoration project for a Jaguar enthusiast. The 1973 XJ Series 2 pre-production coupé, chassis number 2, was built as a left hand drive machine but converted by the Browns Lane factory to RHD and registered by them in 1974, after which it was used by Jaguar’s then Chief Engineer Jim Randle as his company car.

 

The XJ was subsequently owned by Thoroughbred and Classic Cars and featured many times in that publication during the 1980s. It was recently found languishing in a garden and is in need of full restoration. It will be offered at no reserve.
