H&H Classics posted £1m ($1.3 million) in sales with a 76 percent sell-through rate Wednesday at its Buxton Auction in England.
The sale’s highlights were:
• A 1963 Jaguar E-type 3.8 roadster that was expected to bring around £55,000 ($71,875) but sold for £121,325 ($158,546).
• A 1935 AC 16/66 drophead coupe that sold for £41,400 ($54,101), again beating its high pre-auction estimated value.
• A 1963 Austin Mini 850 Super De Luxe that went into storage for nearly 20 years after being driven for only one year before its original owner died. The car, still with its Conway plastic protective seat covers in place, sold for £14,375 ($18,785).
H&H Classics next sale is an online auction scheduled for May 1.
