Classic Convertibles at Charthouse Car Auction

A trio of classic convertible cars are entered into the Charterhouse auction of Classic & Vintage cars on Sunday 4th November at The Royal Bath & West Showground.
“Having been robbed of a summer this year, a good deal of classic car owners are looking forward to an Indian summer in the autumn. They are continuing to enjoy their classic convertibles by dodging the showers with their top down!” Commented Matthew Whitney. “Over the past few years, the classic car market has enjoyed buoyant times and we have a large following across the continent and state side due to the exchange rate and low shipping costs. In addition, all our classic car auctions are conducted live on the internet with UK and foreign buyers bidding in real time pushing the price up.” 
Amongst the numerous lots already entered into this specialist Charterhouse auction is a trio of convertibles. First up is a 1937 Morris 8 with a Dickie seat. Benefiting with a recent hood, this super little car is estimated at £6000-7000. Next up, and with the same estimate, is a 1978 classic VW Beetle convertible. In immaculate condition, this iconic piece of motoring history is ready for continental holidays as it is a left hand drive car. Thirdly, and finally, is a thoroughly British car – an MG A 1600 roadster. Also in immaculate condition, this is estimated at £18,000-22,000.
Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for their busy programme of auctions, including pictures, prints and books in October followed by classic and vintage cars and a special auction of silver, jewellery & watches, all in November.
