Barons’ Ford-only auction to be held at the new International Ford Show on 30 April
This month, dozens of classic Fords will go under the hammer as part of a one-off auction at the inaugural International Ford Show at Sandown Park, Surrey on Saturday April 30.
The auction - which is hosted by Barons - is expected to attract a record-breaking selection of Fords including Anglias, Zephyrs, Mexicos and Mustangs. In total, as many as 60 Fords will go under the hammer. Owners of classic Fords are also invited to enter their vehicle into the sale, which is expected to generate strong prices thanks to the sale’s customer base at the show.
Tim Gascoigne from Barons said: ‘We are extremely pleased to have been asked to run an auction at The International Ford Show. I’m sure all Ford enthusiasts will enjoy the spectacle, and hopefully one or two will put their hands in their pockets and buy something!’
Entry to the auction as a show visitor is by catalogue at £15 each, while anyone wishing to enter a classic Ford into the auction should contact Barons directly.
The International Ford show is a brand new event for 2016, and organizers hope to attract some of the best Fords from the UK, and a few from further afield, catering for original, restored and modified cars of a shapes and sizes.
It’s not all about the auction though; other special attractions include a celebration for the 40th anniversary of the Fiesta, as well as 50 years of the Essex V6 engine. Ant Anstead, star of Channel 4’s classic car restoration program For The Love of Cars, will also make a special guest appearance at the show.
Advance tickets for The International Ford Show are on sale for £10 per person per day and £20 per person for a weekend. Up to two children below the age of 14 can enter the show for free with each paying adult. Tickets are available at: www.theinternationalfordshow.com
