1938 Frazer Nash TT replica estimated to realise $160,000

A 1938 Frazer Nash TT replica is set to highlight Bonhams' Harrogate, UKsale on November 13, with an estimate of 80,000-100,000 ($130,000-160,000).

Frazer Nash based the design on a car it produced for the 1931 Tourist Trophy race, although none of its cars managed to finish the event.

The bodywork proved popular, and the British company produced 85 examplesbetween 1932 and 1939.

This AC-engined car was rebuilt in 2008 around a new chassis by Beckhouse Engineering, and has been graded "3 out of 5" by the Vintage Sports Car Club (VSCC) in terms of original parts used.

A 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage sports saloon carries an estimate of 60,000-90,000 ($97,000-150,000).

The final addition to Aston Martin's DB series, the 1967 DB6 dispensed with the superleggera body structure of the previous models - opting instead for a steel and aluminium frame.

Last year a refitted 1967 DB6 achieved $225,000 at Dragone Auctions in Connecticut.

A refitted 1949 Bentley MkVI drophead coupe is expected to make 60,000-80,000 ($97,000-130,000).

The first Rolls-Royce produced in the post world war two period, the Mk VI was introduced in 1946.

Orignially the MkVI was built from pressed steel panels, however this refitted example features a carbon fibre bodyaround an original Bentley chassis.

The body's design was inspired by the work of Figoni and Falaschi, French coachbuilders whose dropheads on the iconic Delahaye chassis in the late 1940s are particularly admired.

The auction will also feature the 1949 Triumph Roadster 2000 driven by detective Jim Bergerac in the BBC TV series of the same name, estimated at 25,000-30,000 ($40,488-48,585).
