Barn Find 2015

Postby XF650 » Thu Apr 02, 2015 3:51 pm

The Ashburton Vintage Car Club is honoured to have been asked to assist with the disposal by Auction of a unique Collection of old British Cars and associated Parts & Memorabilia.
This exceptional collection came with a land/building purchase and is a genuine Barn Find.
Cars as follows:
1947 Rover Sports Saloon 16hp, 1937 Rover Saloon 14hp, 1947 Rover Saloon 12hp, 1937 Wolseley 12/48 Saloon, 1934 Vauxhall ASX Saloon 14hp, 1938 Ford 10hp saloon, 1938 Standard Flying Saloon 12hp & 1947 Standard Flying Saloon 14hp.

Vehicles and parts have been stored dry inside for decades and are a credit to the original collector, for having the foresight to preserve these wonderful examples of motoring history. The cars appear unmolested & are in good original used condition, including a glorious coating of dust when found. All vehicles had been parked on blocks with engine bores oiled i.e. wheels and motors all turn freely.
Keys included however no attempt has been made to start any of the cars. Registration plates have expired (no papers available at this time).

Many spare parts relative to these cars and others are also up for auction. A parts catalogue will be posted on-line in due course (watch for updates at bottom of this page).
Other memorabilia includes old vehicle registration number plates, old ChCh bus destination signs, many gramophone records and even the mechanical internals of an old telephone exchange.

The vehicles and parts will be sold via Auction on Sat 23rd May 2015 in Rakaia, Mid Canterbury, with very realistic reserve prices (everything must be sold). Address will be signposted from Rakaia Mobil and notified on-line here. Inspection is invited in the morning, with Auction to follow after lunch. The cars will not be groomed, other than worst of the dust has been blown off to allow better panel & paint appraisal.
Hot food & drink will be available on site as fund raiser for local community group, who have requested payment by gold coin please.

Please note the vehicles have now been moved off-site to secure storage and it is not possible to view cars or parts prior to auction date. However videos and photos are on-going & will be updated on attached web links. We acknowledge video and photo production assistance by the Ashburton Video Camera Club.

Conditions: Prospective bidders must register with the on-site Office, prior to Auction commencing on May 23rd, 2015. Bids will only be accepted via registered number. Payment is by cash, Eftpos, MasterCard & Visa only (no cheques). Credit Card payments will incur $5.00 surcharge. Note there is an ATM machine at Rakaia Mobil.
Vehicles and parts become the responsibility of successful bidders once payment is made & must be removed within 24 hours, showing proof of purchase on pick-up. Auction is GST inclusive.
Ashburton VCC acknowledges the support and Auction assistance of Property Brokers Hastings McLeod, Ashburton. https://www.propertybrokers.co.nz/branches/ashburton/.

Disclaimer: Neither the Ashburton Vintage Car Club, the Auctioneer or the Vendor make any claim as to the mechanical condition or road worthiness of the vehicles. Prospective purchasers must accept the cars are being sold “as is, where is”. While parts and memorabilia have been identified to the best of our knowledge, we insist that it is the responsibility of bidders to identify items to their own satisfaction.

We look forward to seeing many fellow car enthusiasts at this genuine Barn Find auction. Any questions, please ask on this VCC Forum topic.
