The next few days will be busy on the auction side. A newcomer to the market will take advantage of this first summer weekend to bid for their first auction. We look in the catalog.
First sale of Collector Cars Auctions and Richard MDV
This weekend! After the exhibition on Thursday and Friday from 10:00 to 19:00, and then on Saturday from 10:00 to 16:00, the auction will take place from 16:00. And it all happens in Villefranche-sur-Saone.
Therefore, in the hammer we find Richard Maison de Vente. For automotive experts, since it can’t be invented, it happens on the side of collectible car auctions. The organization revolves around Marion Quesnay, who runs the life of this department of old cars, and Arno Focona, who has already worked in the recognized auction houses in the world of old cars.
And for this premiere, Collector Cars Auctions collected a variety of cars, both by definition and by price: 26 cars and 50 lots of cars.
5 sleeping jaguars
These five cars are there, we have already talked about them. Fabien went to see how they came out of the darkness. Exiting the garage is more than exiting the barn, which he describes here:
Since then, these cars have been tested, and we know more. Please note that they have all been stored for many years and will need complete repairs before they can return to the road.
Honor the oldest, the 1.5-liter Jaguar SS. This car from 1938 has already been restored in the past and has a good patina. It is estimated at 20 to 30,000 euros.
