Peter Love reports on the encouragingly-positive sale prices seen at the recent Cheffins auction, where some very interesting lots were sold.
With all that’s going on with the economy, and particularly with collectors car prices generally dropping back, especially for pre- and just post-WW2 vehicles – which was evident at the Duxford at the recent sale that took place a day before this one – the question remains will the price slump spill across into other sectors of the preservation movement? Based on the results from this Cheffins sale, though, the answer to that is a resounding No!
Prices were very strong at this auction, with strong sales made for everything from literature and engineering models right through to the commercials and classic tractors. Overall, the good news is that the mood was nothing but positive all the way through.
