Little 9 in Auction
1932 Standard Little 9 in Auction
1932 Little 9 in the rain
It was a rainy, windswept day in Buxton, Derbyshire for the H&H Auction, which your roving reporter attended. The Little 9 didn't appear in the printed catalogue, only on an addendum sheet as a late entry. As lot 77 it was also the last vehicle of the day.
Despite the rain the car looked very presentable. Clearly a restoration completed some time ago the paintwork and interior all appeared in good order. The only blemish was a cracked passenger door window. The car had a "100 years" licence holder so obviously took part in the centenary celebrations at Coventry
I didn't stay until the very last "knockins" to see if the car sold. However the H&H website later shows that the car sold for £2750 ( Estimate 2000 -
Rather better value for money, I think, than this other "star" of the Auction that day. This was a 1901 Decauville 8Hp. Take a good look at the remains of this car first, then scroll below the picture to see the selling price
This restoration project sold for an unbelievable £90,200 including commission and VAT !
