A variety of motor vehicles from the late Peter Sidnell who rented the same Wiltshire barn for over 30 years and was an avid fettler and classic car enthusiast. The majority of the cars were acquired before the early 80’s through friends and family where Peter had previously helped maintain their vehicles.D441 GTC was registered in March 1987. The four-door manual Metro was last taxed in 2001 so is quite possibly one of the last cars to enter the barn. Inside, the engine bay looks clean and solid, whilst the interior has fared well over the years. Certainly, both the underside and some panels will need fabrication work if it is to see the road again. It is supplied with a current V5C document and a key.To be auctioned along with a fantastic selection of other vehicles on July 1st at our Showell Farm site, SN15 2NU with viewing on the 29th and 30th of June, you can also join us at our Nostalgia Social cars & coffee event on June 25th.
