Elans in UK auctions

PostPost by: BrianA » Sun Jul 05, 2020 10:49 am

There are a surprising number of Elans coming up in the UK auction market.

In addition to the Brian Buckland S3 Coupe already commented on in this forum, The Market auction site currently has a Sprint DHC and a S3 Coupe competition car.

Three of the major auction houses are hosting auctions during July with a total of nine Elans as follows:

Silverstone Auctions (on 31st July) have a rather tasty looking and rare S1 "Bourne Bodied" car which has avoided being turned into a GTS race car.
A little earlier, on the 25th July, Bonhams are fielding two S4 DHCs and a S3 Coupe.
Historics are at a new venue in Windsor in the 18th and also have two S4 DHCs (one upgraded to Sprint spec) a proper Sprint DHC, a Sprint Coupe and an early +2.

And then there is always FleaBay.......

Do you have a link for the S1 at Silverstone? I've tried to find it on the site. Talk about a user-unfriendly site.

I see the Brian Buckland S3 FHC got bid up to £19750 by the end of the auction, not meeting reserve. A couple of days later, the website shows it having sold for £24233...
Must have been an "after the auction" agreement.
Anyone on here buy it ?
Nice car.
