H&H Getting “REDy” For the Year’s Final Sale

Following their record price for a RHD Ferrari 330 GTC at the Duxford Imperial War Museum last month, H&H are bringing no less than six classic Ferraris to market in their final sale of the year Buxton, November 20/21.

Heading the entries is a pristine Rosso Red 1973 365 GTB/4 Daytona. One of only 158 UK supplied RHD cars, it carries the suitably appropriate registration number 365 GT and an estimate of £140,000-160,000. Then theres the 1972 246 Dino GT, been in the current ownership since 1973 and completed mere 20,000 miles from new – £68,000-75,000. Also on offer are: a 1988 Testarossa thats covered only 16,000 miles to date; a stunning 1986 288 GTO Evocation based on a 328 GTS; a Mondial Coupe that has traveled, wait for it, just 3,500 miles in its entire life, and a 1986 412i.

More Red Runners:

One expects Ferraris to be red, but not many Jaguar XJ 220s are. Chassis 02 was hand built by Jim Randle’s team in 1990 and was the car that established some of the much publicized speed and endurance records for the model. Showing just 8,000 miles, it is expected to fetch £60,000-70,000. The similarly colored 1957 Bristol-engined AC Ace is well-known in AC circles and has been successfully campaigned in UK sprints and European rallies in recent years – £80,000-100,000.

English Elegance:

H&H have had considerable success with the Lagonda marque in the last few years and have unearthed two more splendid examples for Buxton. The older of the two is a 1933 3/3.5-liter Tourer that enjoyed a no expense spared restoration in the 90s at the hands of Peter Whenman. The other is the highly original ex-Richard Hare 1937 LG45 Drophead Coupe, which was the subject of a flattering article by The Automobile in July 1985. Both cars sport black coachwork and are estimated to fetch £80,000-90,000.
