‘Best of British’ is the theme for Classic Car Auctions’ sale scheduled for March 23-24 at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show at the NEC in Birmingham, England.

1951 Land Rover Series 1

CCA said “a number” of Land Rovers are on the docket, featuring a 1951 Series 1 in its traditional green color and with a Land Rover Heritage certificate.

Also on offer is an 84,000-mile 1968 Jensen Interceptor Mk1 with its 6.3-liter Chrysler V8 engine. CCA says the car had some bodywork “refreshed” in 1992, including new floorpan and panels. 

The consignments also include a 1985 Rolls-Royce Corniche with left-hand drive; the car originally was sold in New York and wasn’t sent back to England until 2014, and a 1999 Aston Martin DB7 coupe that spent several years in Canada.

“With prices for Jensen showing movement, Aston Martins and Bentley always offering great interest, the sale is looking very promising,” said the CCA’s Gary Dunne.

After the Birmingham sale, CCA resumes auction action with its May Classic Car Sale, May 25 at the Warwickshire Event Center.
