The specialist auction house will be holding their next sale of collectors’ classic cars at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford this Wednesday, with 90 classics scheduled for auction.
The H&H team has a broad selection of interesting lots on offer such as an Alfa Romeo 1600 Duetto, made famous by its association with the 1967 film The Graduate, which will be adding a touch of Italian glamour to the auction. Finished in red, the rare right-hand drive model is estimated at £19,000–£23,000.
More noteworthy European cars with associations with the silver screen include a 1969 Fiat Dino 2400 Coupé, epitomised in The Italian Job and the quirky 1959 Daimler Ferret MK 2/3 – an armoured car mounted with a deactivated Browning 0.30 calibre machine gun!
The auction also includes a number of pre-war cars, with stand-out entries including the sporting, bare-metal 1932 Riley 9 Gamecock (£32,500–£37,500) and the 1935 Alvis Silver Eagle / Speed 25 Special, a real post-vintage thoroughbred for £35,000–£45,000.
Other eye-catching lots include a 1969 Aston Martin DB6 Mk 2, in metallic silver with a blue hide interior, estimated at £200,000–£240,000 and an ex-Ian Walker 1960 Austin Healey Sebring Sprite valued at £80,000–£100,000.
