This gorgeous little 1959 Austin A35 has been discovered just in time to feature in the UK’s biggest Barn Find display at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show.

It was found by Mark Fishpool, a restorer from Peterborough who will aim to get the car back to its original condition after the show ends. He’s already been doing some work on the mechanicals and after 20 years of slumber, “now the old girl ticking over like a Swiss watch so she can be moved about under own steam,” says Mark.

Classic Car Auctions (CCA) will auction a 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Fixedhead Coupe barn find, one of the greatest sports cars of all time, at its biggest ever sale taking place at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show.

Abandoned for almost 20 years, this car is a very early example of the iconic Jaguar, Chassis 282.

Sahara crossing Citroen 2CV seeks new home

Classic Car Auctions (CCA) has consigned a rare 1965 Citroen 2CV Sahara with an unusual, globetrotting past to its biggest ever sale taking place at the NEC, Birmingham.

This particular example was delivered to Nigeria in December 1965 and first registered to an Englishman working as an anthropologist at the Ahmadu Bello University of federal government research in Zaria. Allegedly, he chose the car for travelling to remote villages because he found that if he used a Land Rover he was regarded as being a Government inspector, whereas the charming Citroen was seen as far more friendly.
