All Car Auctions

The next auction of Classic cars is to take place in Bedford, England on August 1st, 2006, and a special valuation day will take place on Wed. July 5th. See british-car-auctions.co.uk. This auction is being run by Robin Lawton whos been in the car business for over 30 years. In the very fancy show that took place in April, two limousines with connection to the British royalty were offered for auction

The 1990 Daimler DS limousines had been used on several car auction tires to chauffeur her royal and oh so snobby high-ness Queens Elizabeth the 2nd. They each had about 50,000 miles on them and sold for over $10,000 a piece. A very cushy 1960 Jaguar, with a 2.4 liter engine was restored to a very high condition, that is to a royal high-ness. It sold for close to $20,000. A 1967 Mustang coupe, originally from the still quite high precincts of California, but residing in the UK for the last 15 years was also restored to a pristine condition. This rather commoner car still sold for a lofty price of over $20,000. BCA also had a Classical and Historic event on June 8th, 2006 at the Brooklands Museum, located in Weybridge in Surrey, England. More details on this car auction can be found at www.classic-car-auction.co.uk/.

For the last 60 years the BCA has led in the resale of cars. In 1960 they started the Veteran & Vintage Motor Cars Division, now known as the Classic & Historic Automotive car auction tires. Buying with the Classic & Historic Division begins with a viewing of the vehicles on the morning of the auction. You will need to purchase a catalog to get into the viewing hall and the auction. You also need to register to bid and get a bidding number. When youre in the auction hall, be sure to show the auctioneer your bidding number, and remember that your price must include the VAT tax and buyers fee. If your bid is accepted, you will be called up to the front of the auction hall and be asked to be a 10% deposit or 500 English pounds cash, whichever is greater.

There is also such a thing as a reserve price. If you have offered the winning bid, but it is below the sellers reserve price than you have won a provisional sale. This is provisional based on only being winning if the seller accepts the bid. If the provisional sale is successfully concluded, it is called a Private Treaty Sale.
