Hoarding Warning, or Massive car/parts Auction Tiverton this weekend

Recommended Posts

As a salient warning to how much a determined petrol head can collect I stumbled across the following Auction catalogue for a sale in Tiverton this weekend. I'll see if the new software will allow me to upload the pdf catalogue, if not I'll add a link to the auctioneers site so you can access it, nb Cars are on the last page(s) the previous 10 or so pages are........

Too far away for me, but the estimates for the cars on sale are ridicuous!   A Lancia Monta Carlo, £2500-3500?  Even 'for restoration, these are rare cars!

Yep, I thought the estimates were very much on the low side.  Mind you, Monte Carlos are rare for good reason. The corrosion problems are just horrific (ISTR "lots of welding done, lots more needed" in the listing.....)

I thought I wanted one once (in early/mid 90s) and looked at a couple.  Both were falling-apart-rusty even then and the rust was that particularly cancerous variety where the steel has just given up being steel and turned to bran flakes usually sandwiched between underseal and sound deadening.  There was even a self-styled specialist in my village (though his main work was Morris Minors) and it was noticeable that his mechanical parts collection was extensive due to the number he'd broken as being beyond repair structurally.  Memories of the festering grot-box, which was my long departed X1/9 resurfaced and I scrapped the idea!

One of the good local classic builders has a Monte Carlo in one of his bays, its been there about a year, he has a skilled ex Aston body guy who comes in a few days a week, and when not working on the main projects gets to work on the Lancia. They are not sure when they will finish or if there will be any original metal left!  Its certainly going to be a Grandfathers Axe shell when they have finished!
