Barn find Bentleys, Rolls-Royces to auction through H&H

A collection of 13 'barn find' Bentleys and Rolls-Royces will sell in the UK

A collection of 13 "barn find" Bentleys and Rolls-Royces will be offered by H&H Classic Car Auctions on October 16 at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, UK.

Rolls-Royce Phantom II 1933The Phantom II was originally bought direct from the stand at the 1933 Olympia Motor Show

Having languished in a garage for decades, the cars are in various states of repair but include some of the top models from the British marques.

The top performer is expected to be a 1933 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Touring Saloon, which is valued at 20,000-30,000 ($31,965-47,947).

The car starred on the Park Ward & Co stand at the 1933 Olympia Motor Show, and was bought directly off the coachbuilder's stand by Ernest Barron Esq for 2,750.

It was then used in the Moira Shearer ballet film Red Shoes (1948), before ending up in the hands of Lawrence Dalton -a renowned enthusiast. It is featured in his books Those Elegant Rolls-Royce and The Derby Phantoms.

With its last MOT certificate dating to 1996, this will make a superb restoration project and is offered with its original logbooks and paperwork.

1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud IIA largely original model that has already received a partial restoration, the Silver Cloud awaits a new owner to bring it to its full potential

Also expected to fare well is a 1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II, which received a partial restoration in the 1970s and is in highly original condition. It holds a 30,000-35,000 ($47,947-55,938) estimate.

The Bentley consignments include a 1935 3.5 Litre Sports Saloon, which is a matching numbers example but is in a very poor state of repair and will be sold without reserve.
