Bentley Brings in the Bids

A quick walk through some of the cars in our auction this Sunday July 19th, with apologies for sound quality.

 

 




A 1998 Bentley was the top lot at the Charterhouse auction of classic cars in their auction on Sunday 19th July, when it sold for £56,000.

“The Bentley we sold was a very special Bentley, being 1 of just 100 limited edition Mulliner Bentleys produced. Bought new by the vendor when living in Monaco, it has hardly been driven and featured some very special extra such as a speedo mounted in the rear so the passengers could see how fast it was being driven.” Commented Matthew Whitney.

The auction attracted hundreds of people who attended the sale. With live internet bidding with buyers from across Europe participating in the auction, and a strong market, resulted in Charterhouse selling £450,000 of classic and vintage cars.

Also performing well, was a brace of Jaguar E Types, selling for £58,000 and £45,000, a 1972 VW bay window camper van £20,000, a 1963 Glas Goggomobil TS250 microcar ££11,000, a 1954 Riley RME, garage stored for decades and with no paperwork, £5,200 and 2000 Aston Martin DB7 Volante for £26,000 selling to a couple who bought the car to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary!

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for their busy programme of summer auctions including silver, jewellery, watches and wine in 26th August, followed by classic motorcycles on 4th September and classic cars on 16th September.

Netley Marsh Charterhouse Auction



An extremely rare Pierce motorcycle is one of the many lots of veteran, vintage and classic motorcycles Charterhouse Auctioneers will be selling at The Carole Nash Netley Marsh Motorcycle Eurojumble near Cadnam in Hampshire on Friday 4th September.

“We already have some fabulous entries of motorcycles from mopeds up to 1,000cc bikes with Honda, Indian, SOS, Panther, AJS, Velocette, Matchless, Gilera, Moto Guzzi, Triumph, Yamaha, Norton, BMW, Panther, Ariel, BSA, Francis, NSU” Commented Matthew Whitney. “And I can now add Pierce to this extending list of motorcycle manufacturers going under the hammer”.

Although the Pierce motorcycle at Charterhouse is registered in 1922, it was actually made 10 years earlier in the USA when President Woodrow Wilson was in power. This Pierce was shipped over by its Canadian owner during the First World War when he served as a soldier, and was eventually registered in the UK in 1922, which by coincidence, was the year the current owner was born!

The Pierce-Arrow Motorcar Company produced expensive luxury cars and formed the subsidiary Pierce Motorcycle Company. However, Pierce motorcycles were hugely expensive to build and were reputedly sold for less than they cost to produce which resulted in the company going bankrupt in 1913.

With very low production numbers, Pierce motorcycles rarely appear for sale in the world let alone in the West Country, and this Pierce 600cc single motorcycle being sold by Charterhouse Auctioneers based in Sherborne, Dorset, is estimated at £50,000-60,000 for its 93 year old owner.

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for this important Netley Marsh auction of classic motorcycles on Friday 4th September.
