Two classic cars and two classic trucks will be auctioned by H&H Classics
1933 Leyland Badger Breakdown Truck. Estimate £3,000 to £6,000.

WARRINGTON.- Two classic cars and two classic trucks which have survived the rigours of three decades of British weather with no protection, will be auctioned by H&H Classics on April 29th in an online sale.

It is something of a miracle that these four vehicles have survived at all given the rain, wind, snow and sun of our climate. But, having done so, they are deserving of the best restoration a new passionate owner can lavish on them.

The vehicles are part of much larger collection that Roger Nowell of H&H recently discovered standing in fields and barns on a Derbyshire farm.

Roger comments: “Each of these four vehicles are interesting and important and would make wonderful classic car and truck projects. Once they have had lots of TLC and are returned to concours condition each would be a proud addition to any collection.”

The four vehicles are:

• 1933 Invicta 12/45 Saloon: Engine number BA185, showing registration number 'AGH 64' though not recorded currently with DVLA. Appears to be largely complete with break drums free. Estimate £7,000 - £9,000.

• 1933 Leyland Badger Breakdown Truck: Registered with DVLA, it comes complete with original Liverpool registration number, it was used in the Queensway Tunnel under the River Mersey. Opened during 1934 the Tunnel was hailed as one of the greatest engineering achievements the world had ever seen. Appears to be largely complete and we are advised it was driven to its current position many years ago and has remained. Estimate £3,000 to £6,000.

• 1929 Armstrong Siddeley 12/6 Saloon: Registered with the DVLA as UW 8139 Fabric bodied 6-cylinder, 1425cc saloon, ideal basis for an open tourer special Engine number 11562. Tax disc from 1979 which presumably is when it was last used
Long term ownership. No Reserve.

• Circa 1926 Graham Brothers Pickup: Comes from long term ownership
Dodge running gear (Dodge bought a controlling stake in Graham Brothers during 1925), ideal restoration project. Appears to be largely complete, desirable early Pickup riding on artillery wheels, untouched since. No Reserve.
