Broad based market weakness continues

Broad based market weakness continues for sale

Auction houses continue to struggle with achieving respectable sale rates and undoubtedly this is due to an element of vendors seeking prices that are no longer attainable along with a subdued market. E-types which were once the darling of the classic car market are struggling more than most. The reason is simply because they have risen very quickly to levels that cannot be sustained. The exceptionally high prices of four or five years ago resulted in a huge influx of overseas left hand drive cars, many of which have been converted to right hand drive. The end result is over supply which puts downward pressure on prices. At the recent Bonhams RAF museum sale a 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 4.2 Coupe sold for £44k. Go back five years and people were willing to pay almost twice that for a barn find restoration! The moral of the story is to price your car correctly in line with current market trends and you will then still find willing buyers. To achieve sales whether it be by auction, privately or indeed to the trade requires realistic asking prices. We are still buying good examples of cars and we are prepared to pay good prices for the right cars. Please do contact us today if we have a classic that you want to sell.

Triumph values continue to slip

Triumph values continue to slip for sale

It is notable how the market is changing quite rapidly for some cars. Triumph cars such as the TR6 and TR5 have been very much in vogue in recent years with values of the TR5 chased ever higher with some fetching values in excess of £50k three to four years ago. That has certainly changed and two examples sold at the August Anglia Car Auctions sale for around the £28,000. TR6 values have followed suit and although there are still plenty of examples on the market for over £20k, our data shows that the true value now lies at below £20,000 unless the car is exceptional. Prices of many makes and models have overheated in recent years and we see the current price consolidation as a healthy development. We are still cash buyers for Triumph cars and in particular we are still seeking TR6 so if you have a car for sale do please get in touch and we promise a swift valuation and sale at a good price.

Flat Floor E-type at Bonhams £74,166

Flat Floor E-type at Bonhams  for sale

If you go back to 2013/14 you could expect to be paying £150,000 plus for a home market right hand drive E-Type flat floor roadster which makes the price of this car which was sold yesterday quite surprising. According to the narrative it is a restored example and there is nothing to suggest it isn't a matching numbers car which means it was bought at half price or perhaps market values have re-based downwards. It could well be a bargain, but it does show the top end of the market continues to weaken. If you are thinking of selling please do talk to us first to establish the correct value for your car before you go to market. See the original advert on the auctioneer's website

TR6 for sale

The market is suffering at present from a glut of cars that are being overpriced and consequently sitting on the market for months and sometimes over a year. The market is stagnating in many cars mainly because asking prices are unrealistic. We see many instances at present of people placing their cars on the market at world record levels because a car has been sold at auction for the same price. There are usually unique reasons why the auction car has done well and the decision to price cars so highly on the retail market is resulting in them remaining unsold for prolonged periods of car. This is one such example which was first listed in April 2017 and is still on the market. Good cars priced realistically will sell, but anything else will sit on the market.

Latest auction surprises

Latest auction surprises for sale

We have two picks from the latest auctions run by Historics and Classic Car Auctions. The first is £42,560 paid for a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 2 which was part of a deceased estate. The narrative shows the mileage to be 24,623 which we are assuming was warranted and the car was a one owner from new. Once again this shows the kind of premium a low mileage and original car can command which must be a record for one of these. The other result at Classic Car Auctions was a huge £72050 paid for a 1991 Audi Quattro turbo 20 Valve manual which was again a low mileage example with just 32,233 miles which really shows that even in more difficult market conditions the right cars are still highly sought after. See the original advert on the auctioneer's website

MG SA£15000
First seen 20/04/2017

MG SA for sale

This MG SA which is being sold for restoration from a deceased estate looks like good value at £15,000. With top examples now selling for in excess of £50,000 there is ample scope to spend money on the car and bring it up to roadworthy standard. See the original advert on carandclassic

MGBGT for sale

What price a £47k restoration? That was the question potential buyers of an MGBGT at the Bonhams Goodwood Members meeting asked themselves. The car had been subjected to £47,000 worth of body restoration and the fitting of a reconditioned engine. We had an opportunity to view the car and it was by no means concours and the drivers door fit didn't look that flush. Nevertheless it was a nice looking car and someone decided to pay nearly £19,000 for the car which is quite likely a world record but in our view a little high despite the huge expenditure on the car. See the original advert on the auctioneer's website

1984 Alfa Romeo Spider£12,000
First seen 28/12/2016

1984 Alfa Romeo Spider for sale

Low mileage and original cars continue to attract a premium and this Alfa Romeo seems to tick those boxes. The value also seems a little low and this car could be worth upwards of £15,000 if the car is in good order. See the original advert on carandclassic

Triumph GT6£10,500
First seen 11/11/2016

Triumph GT6 for sale

Fully rebuilt Triumph GT6s have been commanding some big premiums at auction in recent years and prices upwards of £17k have been possible. If this car is a full nut and bolt rebuild to a high standard the new owner might well be getting it a a very reasonable rate. See the original advert on carandclassic

BMW 3.0CSL£79,995
First seen 09/11/2016

BMW 3.0CSL for sale

Go back 12 months and the price of this car might look expensive, but in fact we believe it looks cheap. With only 500 right hand drive versions made, the scarcity factor has pushed good examples to over £100k as evidenced by the £102k paid for an example at the Bonhams Goodwood sale earlier this year. A restoration sold for over £60k at Bonhams Beaulieu sale which makes this car a potential bargain. See the original advert on carandclassic

Aston Martin DBS 6 Vantage£97,500
First seen 29/02/2016

Aston Martin DBS 6 Vantage for sale

This Aston Martin DBS 6 Vantage looks very cheap at £97,500. Given the rarity of Vantage spec cars and the fact that you can pay almost this amount for a normal DBS car we would not expect this example to remain on sale for very long. This car could conceivably be worth considerably more than the asking price. See the original advert on carandclassic

1987 Porsche 928S Auto£8,000
First seen 22/02/2016

1987 Porsche 928S Auto for sale

Eighties and nineties classics are really starting to gather some momentum now and for those seeking cars with the potential for capital appreciation the Porsche 924, 928 and 944 series cars still offer very good value. This 928 S might need some cosmetic attention according to the advert but if the mechanics check out it looks like a good buy at the asking price of £8000. See the original advert on carandclassic

Auction prices driving unrealistic asking prices

Morris J Type Van

We couldn't help but notice a Morris J Type van which was listed within the last week or so at a world record asking price of £18,750. This seems to be the result of the sale of a similar model (pictured) at Anglia Car Auctions over the previous weekend of a van that had just 8,928 miles on the clock and sold for £18.020. The reason for such a strong selling price was the incredibly low mileage and we would not expect to see this repeated for a van of the same model unless it also had a unique selling point. This again shows why it is important not to follow all auction results when pricing your car. Please contact us today if you have a classic to sell and we will give you a realistic appraisal of what your car can achieve in the current market.
