Buyers snap up barn-find bargains at Richard Edmonds May sale

For those prepared to put some work into restoring or recommissioning classic cars, there were some bargains to be had at Richard Edmonds’ 30 May auction.

Cheapest of the cars sold at the 30 May auction was a 1934 Standard 12 saloon that had been stored for many years. Fairly complete, although very rusty, the saloon sold for just £1,155.

A 1933 Morris 12/4 Cowley in similar condition was also on offer. Some restoration work was undertaken in the 1980s, but the car had been stored for most of the time since then. It sold for £1,265.

Some restored cars were also sold relatively cheaply, including a rare 1961 Skoda. The three-owner Octavia, restored in 2013, went for just under £3,000.

However, the more mainstream classics on offer gained higher prices. A recently restored 1961 Daimler Dart SP250 sold for £41,250, and a restored and well-used Jaguar XK140 SE went for £55,550.
