Winter Preparation

Although sales are still buoyant in October no doubt assisted by the India Summer we have prepared for the normal easing of sales in the last quarter of the year by reducing our prices.

Please also remember that if you are concerned about winter use of your recently purchased classic we can help with the choice of two storage facilities during this period.

With the continuing rise of the market prices we expect sales to carry on at a good pace this winter as customers seek out a solid investment rather than trust the slow pace at the banks.

Cotswold Battle of Britain Day

A special day commemorating one of the most poignant moments in our Islands history the Battle of Britain at the Cotswold airport included flights in Tiger Moths and even a flyby by Spitfires and Hurricanes ! ending with 2000 people viewing the film by the same name in a special open air cinema.

BSC were asked to complement the classic car display with several classics from stock and many other classic car enthusiasts made the effort to join the display.

This day September 17th is most remembered from 76 years ago as the Germans officially gave in attempting to invade Britain due to the amazing efforts of our RAF bravely fighting off the Luftwaffe.

Still Stunning After All These Years

You can count on the E Type to still attract the most attention.

On an E Type delivery up North recently an entire 52 seater coach offloaded in order to take a look at the car and take photos etc

You are often approached at petrol pumps by interested parties.

What a sight the four BSC Jags make with a span of different models including roadsters,2+2 and a rare 2 seater coupe.

They do not last long in stock though with some cars not even making the website as they sell so quickly!

Triumph Crazy

Within in a period  of 3 days BSC have acquired 3 triumphs.

A beautiful Tahiti blue Stag.

Classic Brg tr4a.

And an extremely rare white Dolomite sprint.

Nick explains;

It has been clear that the Triumph range is extremely popular with Uk purchasers and we will endeavour to keep replenishing sold units with the brand as efficiently as possible.

They offer great value at present and each model is very entertaining and was a class leader in its day.

Watch this space for more stock!

Happy Christmas

As expected the buoyancy of the Classic car market continues with customers still reaping the benefits of purchasing a fun classic car that provides great enjoyment and does not depreciate like a modern car!

BSC still have nearly a dozen cars to handover up to Christmas many of which purchased as presents and being delivered as far afield as Ireland and mainland Europe.

Instead of cutting back the flow of fresh purchases at this seasonal time of year we continue to purchase with 5 new Porsches listed this week alone.

Although officially closed from Dec 24th we are always available on the telephone to arrange viewings over the festive break.

Please use the three mobile contact telephone numbers on our contact page.

Italian Stunners

Despite Brexit,US Presidential shocks and a weak Pound the world of selling specialist and classic cars continues to be brisk.

The Ferrari marque is still top of the tree with prices steadily rising with no obvious plateau in prices .

BSC have probably the best 360 for sale in the Uk and last week successfully sold the nicest Maserati Merak available within 24 hours proving again that buyers are always on the look out for the rarest examples.

European customers are active especially as the strength of the Euro equates to a saving of around 20% on previous exchange rates.

2017 will be an interesting year!

Porsche 912’s Are Go!

As highlighted in previous newsletters BSC have embarked on a strategy to purchase pre 1973 Porsches ,especially from the USA due mainly to the advantageous climate providing rust free examples.

The first of the 4 cars we have sold so far was handed over to a Chartered Surveyor from Maidenhead who had enquired about a TR6 for sale but could not believe his luck when he saw a stunning 68 912 SWB in our showroom for under half his price expectation for a similar vintage 911.

After a short test drive he was delighted with the performance and balanced handling of the 912 and purchased it on the spot!

We will update his and others progress in the future with this delightful underrated model.
