Classic & Vintage Car Auction

Saturday 10th April 9.00am – 4.00pm
Garage Stored MG Discovered
A classic MG A sports car has been discovered under a pile of rubbish by Charterhouse Auctioneers and is entered into their next classic car auction in April.
“It was always my dream as a schoolboy to go around the countryside looking for classic and vintage cars which have been locked away for years.” Commented Richard Bromell. “Today, although it rarely happens, there are still discoveries to be made such as this beautiful MG, although it took a long time to dig it out of the garage.”
MG’s are perhaps one of the best known and popular brands of British sports cars. The MG A Roadster being sold by Charterhouse rolled off the production line in 1960. It is thought it moved to the Dorset home some 50 years ago and has clearly been loved and enjoyed the three owners who all lived in the same cottage over the decades.
At some point in the 1980’s it underwent a programme of restoration. Documented in an accompanying photograph album there are numerous images the car before, during and after the restoration.
Moving forward to 2021 and it appears
When not disturbed by a global pandemic, Charterhouse usually hold Classic & Vintage Car auctions at the Haynes International Motor Museum three times a year, including the Wessex Car auction in April and the South West Car Auction in September. Our summer car auction is held at The Classic & Super Car Show, at Sherborne Castle. We also regularly hold one owner sales. You can find all our vehicle lots on car and classic.co.uk. All vehicle auctions for our planned dates will go ahead, live and online, even in lockdown.
Richard Bromell is the head of our Classic Car Department. He organises these immensely popular and successful sales. Top price so far is £150,000 for a 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage.
