There is a raft of wonderful Scammells in the late Roger Austin sale, the first part of which takes place this month.

The late Roger Austin was a big fairground ride collector, but he also had a passion for the vehicles that travelled with them, including his fine genuine Scammell Showtrac.

Those of you with similar leanings will no doubt be interested to hear that Part One of the Roger Austin vehicle collection sale will be taking place later this month. coming up for sale at an online event organised by Cheffins, and running between November 25th and the 30th.

This interesting, c1936 Austin 20 Charabanc (D/LN 6613) was formerly owned by Clinton Devon Estates, and operated in Bicton Park Gardens in the very early 1980s. The 12-seat vehicle has a retro-fitted diesel engine and what might be a Caseley body. It’s been in dry storage for many years so requires recommissioning. No documentation available.

 

Also in the sale is this mid-1930s BSA 10hp four-door saloon that’s in part-dismantled condition and has been in the current ownership for over 30 years. No documentation available.

Viewing will be taking place at Raunds, in Northamptonshire, on November 26th, and you can find out more about what’s being sold by viewing the online sale catalogue on the Cheffins website, by clicking here.
