Shannons Auction Sydney – March 2014

The Citroen Club were invited to see a preview of the cars up for auction by Shannons next week.    This months auction catalogue was a bit of ‘something for everyone’, ranging from a nice looking Wolseley with an estimate of $4,000 to $6000 to a Ferrari Dino 246.

My picks from this auction were:

  • An immaculate looking BMW 635csi for $12,000 to $15,000.   I’ve always been a fan of the 6 series, with its sharp styling and good handling.   This is a lot of car for the money.
  • A nice looking Mercedes 250SL (unfortunately with a 280SL badge) that had the rear 3rd seat.
  • An amazing looking 1928 Stutz for $75,000 – $85,000.   This car was in amazing condition and a great period ‘limo’ for captains of industry and the like.

StuzIn addition, parked outside I noticed a Citroen DS convertible.   The original convertibles were built by the coachbuilder Henri Chapron, and are extremely rare.   I am not familar with this car, although it is not an original and I understand it was converted in Vietnam.   There are at least two converted cars in the NSW club, this one and a light blue one.
