A CHIPPENHAM auctioneer topped his best sale record after one of his latest three-day motor auctions raised a stunning £100,000 more than his previous best.

Richard Edmonds topped the bill selling vintage and classic cars in June including a rare 1931 Lagonda two-litre supercharged low chassis Tourer for £105,000.

He said: “It was a great result for us. We had an eclectic mix of lots and the most ever cars and bikes, which must have attracted more customers. Day two of the sale saw record prices on enamel signs. I think after a few years doing this, we’ve got the formula right.

“The future looks fabulous. We have just secured two private collections for our October auction, one of which is a lifetime’s collection of approximately 1,000 lots of pre-war Alvis spares from Welshpool. The collection is so large we’ll have to drip feed it to buyers over the next 12-18 months. It includes several project cars, chassis frames and engines worth around £40,000-£60,000.

Richard Edmonds will be hosting his next auction in Allington from October 26-28.
