Staggering Auction Result !!!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

    I have just seen that Mathewsons of Bangers and Cash fame have sold a 1979 MK4 2.0S with a reserve of £8000 for the staggering sum of £17400, and that will be plus a buyers premium.  About time to check on the security of our cars. It looks as if Cortina values might follow those of MK1 & MK2 Escorts.

Yes a nice car. BUT did you see the rot in the nearside wing rail just above the A Pillar to inner wing join and next to the hinge. And underneath the bonnet wasn't very nice, but some one wanted it badly.

Makes you wonder what your own car is worth!!

I suppose that's what Auctions are about really. Remembering the couple who wanted a "wind up Gramophone" they got separated at the entrance to the sale and suddenly realised the lot they were interested was being bid on ... It turned out afterwards they were the only two people bidding on it and were bidding against each other ! :oops: 

 

The Cortina in the Mathewson's auction exited me for about half an hour, until I realised it would likely "go" way beyond its reserve. And in fairness was (mileage aside, with its "ticking cam" heard on the video) a truer value given its issues and need for plenty of TLC and further expenditure.  :wine:
