A top auction firm has re-entered the classic arena after identifying what it believes is a gap in the market, American muscle cars.
British Car Auctions (BCA) closed its classic division 18 months ago, but it now holding a series of events featuring ‘some of the most memorable and desirable examples US Muscle Cars from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s’.
Europe’s largest vehicle auctioneers, BCA has teamed up with US specialists DARCARS Automotive Group to source cars and these will be offered monthly during a separate section of the monthly Sports, Prestige and Executive Auction at BCA Nottingham.
Eight classics will feature in the initial sale on Thursday 21 June; cars on offer include two Pontiac GTOs, a Chevrolet Camaro, a Pontiac Firebird and a rare Plymouth GTX, dating from 1963 to ’70. Further sales of 16 additional cars are scheduled for 19 July and 24 cars for 16 August and at least 24 cars monthly at each Top Car Auction in Nottingham.
BCA spokesman Tim Naylor told Classic Car Weekly:
“We believe there is definitely a gap in the market for sales of these cars. The opening sale includes a selection of very desirable Americana and we expect this and the future sales to attract interest, not just from UK buyers, but from much further afield. “There is a real following for the American muscle cars with many buyers seeing them as a real investment for the future. It’s an exciting addition to our sale programme.”
