Classic Motor Cars, a British restoration shop known for its work on Jaguars and for its anniversary car shows, is having what the Yanks would call a garage-sale auction on October 5-6.

The auction will be the first for the workshop, and it is being conducted by Loveridge Agents and Auctioneers.

“Following on from our successful Jaguar Mk 2 Birthday party in June and as part of our commitment to provide interesting activities for the classic car market, we have decided to stage ‘The Great Garage Sale’,” said managing director Nigel Woodward.

“This will be the first auction that we have ever held and it will be run by Guy Loveridge and his team. The auction will feature significant private collections of automobilia. Two private motoring libraries will feature as well as other delightful collectable items.”

Loveridge added, “The motoring libraries will feature over 500 books including signed and limited editions, and the automobilia section will include rare die-cast models, motoring toys and ephemera as well as unframed posters and significant original artworks.”
