Iconic British classics under the hammer at Synetiq

1953 Jaguar XK120 OTS finished in British Racing Green, and running on period-correct wire wheels and cross-ply tyres

Coming from the private museum based at the Synetiq Winsford site, the 'Winsford Collection' includes some 25 cars ranging from fast Fords, to rare Jaguars and a vast selection of classic Minis. With most vehicles emerging following years of dry storage, each is ready to be recommissioned and returned to the road. Much of the selection includes cars that can be viewed as investment projects requiring light restoration.

Five lots from the sale in particular are attracting attention from collectors and enthusiasts:
