Classic Car Auctions next sale will take place over two days, Friday 18th and Saturday 19th September, as a Live Online Auction.
Day one is made up of The Warwickshire Collection Part II, 89 eclectic classics which span a range of decades and marques. Earlier this year CCA’s sister company, Silverstone Auctions, successfully sold The Warwickshire Collection Part I, and now CCA have the opportunity to sell the second half of this exciting collection. 

Gary Dunne, CCA’s Sales Manager commented “We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer these 89 rare and collectable cars. The Warwickshire Collection features some really interesting examples and furthermore, a proportion of the cars are offered without reserve, so this collection is not to be missed”. 

One of the stand outs is the 1949 Bentley MkVI two-door Coupe with "New Look" bodywork by James Young which is estimated at £40,000 - £50,000. At the time, the design was somewhat polarising and just three were ordered, however, hindsight tells us that the appearance of the “New Look” has since influenced the design of many luxury cars since. Finished in Silver with Tudor Grey over a red leather interior, this is an important car in Bentley’s history.

Another special car in the collection is the Lilac 1961 Morris Minor Million, which is one of 349 examples made to celebrate the production of one million Morris Minors. CCA are offering number 21, which features its special choice of colour, white leather seats trimmed with black, wheel trim embellishers and the Morris 1,000,000 badging on the rear. MA2S31000021 is estimated at £15,000 – 20,000.

One of the oldest cars in the collection is the 1932 BSA ‘Family Four’ Vee Twin Three-Wheeler which benefitted from a bare metal restoration in 2009 and has since travelled just a small amount of miles. The restoration retained an extensive list of all the major components that were original to the car including the engine and chassis. The body was completely rebuilt using new ash framework as required, although 40% of it is original and the car is estimated at £8,000 - £10,000.

The last of four cars to be previewed from the 89-strong collection is the 1953 Ford Consul Mk1 Farnham Estate. This example is a well-known show car and is fresh from the British Motor Museum in Gaydon. Finished in Dorchester Grey, it is fitted with an exterior sun visor, chrome luggage rack, driving lamps, badge bar and signpost light and is estimated at £7,000 - £9,000.
Viewing of the cars is available in person (by appointment only) from Friday 11th through to Thursday 17th September at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire and CCA are recommending interested buyers take the opportunity to view the cars to satisfy themselves as to the condition of the cars.
