car sold today at brooklands auction for a tad over 20k
i know it did not have the original engine but in view if the fact the peterson plus 2 sold for 72k at the previous brooklands auction that seems to be a bargain to say the least..
so well done whoever brought the car especially if you are a forum member.
look forward to seeing the car restored.

best regards to all members

Deryck, my guess was that the Peterson car was wanted by two bidders at the auction and they ended up slugging it out, hence the high price.

The Hill car hopefully went to a fan who will treat it right!

Wow! I said 50K but I'm surprised at that. Maybe the non-original engine swayed it :?:
