This 1925 14HP Bean saloon, formerly owned by Sir Ray Tindle, is expected to sell for £12,000-£14,000.
Damian Jones, head of sales at H&H Classics, says: “Once in while, doing what I do, you stumble across a collection which is pure magic. The contents of this horde could have met the vehicular needs of an entire village during the late 1930s from the squire downwards.
“The fact that many of the motorcycles and motorcars are still swathed in dust and cobwebs only adds to the fascination of what can best be described as an automotive ‘time capsule’. True enthusiasts are going to love this collection.”
This ex-Marquess of Bath Austin 20hp Limo is estimated at £10,000-£12,000
Another single-owner collection in the sale at the National Motorcycle Museum is one of 14 pre- and post-Second World War cars.
Dubbed the County Wexford Collection, it includes including a 1938 Austin 20hp Mayfair Limousine that was purchased new by the Fifth Marquess of Bath as transport for Marina, Duchess of Kent and stabled at Longleat until the Nineties.
The collection also encompasses such rarities as a 1939 Triumph Dolomite 14/60 Drophead Coupe (one of three known survivors) and a 1931 Willys Overland Whippet Coupe.
Other interesting entries in the sale are a 1932 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Saloon ‘garage find’ that has been in the current family ownership since 1959, along with a 1973 Volvo P1800 ES that was first owned by the comedian Jimmy Tarbuck.
