About H&H Classics

Founded by Simon Hope and Mark Hamilton in 1993 H&H Classics has been continuously trading longer than any other UK or European auction house. In fact, you could say that we’ve reached classic status ourselves.

We believe that our expertise is unrivalled in the market for classic and collector motorcars and motorcycles, we also believe that our auctions speak louder than words so here are some highlights from over 30 years under the hammer.

We became one of only five auction houses ever to sell a car for over $11 million when we sold a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB in 2015 and we’ve sold almost £2m of motorcycles in a single day at our motorcycle auctions. We’ve achieved world record prices for competition cars including a 1968 Lotus 49B and a 1996 Subaru Impreza WRC and we’ve had Royal success stories with The Queen’s Daimler, Prince Philip’s Lagonda and Princess Anne’s Bentley.

We also know that the value of a collectable isn’t just reflected in the sale price or a celebrity’s name. An Austin or a BSA can provoke a passion as strong as an Aston Martin or Brough Superior, so that’s why we operate at every level of the classic & collector car and motorcycle market.

In October 2021, H&H became an EOT (Employee Ownership Trust). This development means that H&H Classics, after 28 years, is now completely employee owned and on the next stage of its continued development as a business. The model of EOT is similar to that of Richer Sound, a ‘passion’ business like H&H, where it has proved to be extremely successful.

By speaking to one of our specialists, you are dealing with one of the owners of the business and can be assured of the ultimate level of commitment and service. You’ll soon discover that we share your passion and buying or selling with H&H Classics will be an easy and enjoyable experience.

1972 Lotus Elan Sprint Drophead Coupe

Estimate: £30,000 - £35,000*

Reg No: SCW 631L MOT: Exempt

Chassis No: CV0275K

Brainchild of Lotus design and development engineer Ron Hickman, the Elan was introduced at the 1962 Earls Court Motor Show and promptly rede ned its class in terms of ride, handling and performance.

Arguably the ultimate Elan derivative, the Sprint arrived in February 1971.

Characterised by its ‘Big Valve’ (126bhp 113lbft) engine and bold colour schemes, the model was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 6.7 seconds and 121mph. The Sprint was the nal iteration of the Lotus Elan and was marketed between 1971 and 1973. Lotus always intended it to be a distinct model in its own right, rather than a ‘Series 5’, primarily for marketing purposes, however, the model was dropped by from the Lotus line-up in August of 1973, with the Sprint remaining keenly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts alike.

One of circa 856 Lotus Elan Sprint Drophead Coupes built, this example was built in April 1972 and originally supplied new to the USA and as such, is a US market car, ordered in Lotus Yellow (L07) over Cirrus White (L04) with the Talbot-Aztec Gold band. In more recent times the Sprint has been repatriated to the UK in 2014 and subsequently, it has been the subject of restoration and a repaint in 2015 at a cost of some £4,080. Thankfully, the Sprint still wears the attractive classic original shades of Lotus Yellow & Cirrus White with the Gold accent around the waistline with the typically Black vinyl interior, seats and door cards.

Additionally, in 2015 the Sprint was the subject of some work by RJ Motors of Bideford in Devon. They tted a roll cage and overhauled the engine. The latter included replacing the water pump, main and big end bearings and polishing the crankshaft. The Sprint has also been tted with a fast road clutch and a sports manifold. Offered with a collection of invoices from renowned Lotus specialists Paul Matty Sports Cars Limited and a Lotus Certi cate of Vehicle Provenance.

1931 Riley Nine Fabric Tourer

Estimate: £14,000 - £16,000*

Reg No: KJ 583 MOT: Exempt

Chassis No: 6012287

A thorough reworking of the Nine came with the MkIV, notably incorporating a new cable braking system with larger drums, and heavier in-house produced six-stud hubs and axles. For 1930, the MkIV Plus saw further development, with chassis improvements (lowered), a newly designed radiator shell, the fuel tank moved to the rear of the chassis, and the adoption of an Autovac. Chassis number 6012287 was supplied new via Barty Motors Ltd to a F. H. Ling Esq., being registered new on the 29th of April 1931, and is reputed to have been tted with Fabric Tourer coachwork from new, with the likely coachbuilders being the Midlands Motor Body Co. A printed copy of the original buff logbook suggests that the Riley spent time in Yorkshire, Devon, Middlesex and Hertfordshire during the 1950s and 1960s, before it is understood to have been taken off the road during the 1960s.

Acquired by a friend of the vendor in 1975, said friend sold the Nine to the vendor some thirty years ago. Steadily restored over the years between the two gentlemen, the Riley has bene tted from a full ash frame and bodywork restoration with repainting and new fabric covering, full engine and gearbox overhauls, electric system restoration, interior renewal with new Red leather upholstery and new tyres, with some of the works recently completed by Riley specialists Brooklands Autocraft cover over £1,600. Invoices on le document over £8,700 worth of expenditure with the full restoration cost estimated to be in the region of £30,000. Sadly, offered now due to ill health, but very close to completion, the Riley requires nal fettling, weather equipment and door cards manufacturing, with the fabric required for the door cards accompanying, as well as a hood pattern. Offered with a history le that contains a large collection of invoices and information documents on Riley Nines, ‘KJ 583’ is a tempting project that is very close to being back on the road.

• 1960 Bentley S2 Continental H.J. Mulliner Coupe One-off design, built for Capt. R.G. McLeod Estimate: £170,000 - £220,000* Reg No: DBB 993B MOT: April 2024 Chassis No: BC106AR The Bentley S2 Continental was introduced in July of 1959 and proudly displayed at the London Motor Show two months later. It was outwardly indistinguishable from the S1 aside very slightly shorter radiator, and minor changes to the front asher and sidelight assemblies, and the bumper over-riders. The key upgrade lay under the lengthy, centrally hinged bonnet, where new all-alloy OHV V8 engine of 6,230cc sat in place of the former six-cylinder unit. had been developed over ve years and, despite the signi cant increase in cubic capacity, was no heavier than the cast iron unit it replaced. As usual, the manufacturer declined to quote output gures, but suf ce to say that performance was markedly improved, and the newcomer could waft its cosseted occupants to 60mph in around 10.9 seconds and on to a terminal speed in excess of 110mph. Gone was the one-shot lubrication system that had been part of every Bentley’s speci cation since 1933 in its place were 21 grease nipples and extended service intervals. The interior featured a slimmer, altogether smaller steering wheel, a 120mph speedometer and air louvres below the windscreen. The

extraordinary standard of exterior nish, for which the model was renowned, remained completely unaltered, however, with each body receiving up to 14 coats of paint, plus a high degree of hand nishing. The Continental version sported a slightly higher rear axle ratio, wider tyres and front brakes with four shoes per drum, in deference to the higher speeds at which these models were normally driven. H.J. Mulliner and Park Ward together constructed some 346 S2 Continental bodies, while James Young, Hooper, Graber and Franay accounted for further 30 or so. The S2 gave way to the quad-headlamp S3 model in October, 1962.

The iconic fastback styling that H.J. Mulliner had wrought for the R-Type and S-Type Continentals was looking little dated by 1959. Nevertheless, the Chiswick-based concern remained the coachbuilder of choice for the S2 Continental and their two-door Sports Saloon (design number 7514) has long since been acknowledged as a classic; Martin Bennett referring to it as ‘outstandingly beautiful’ and ‘arguably the best looking of all Bentley Continentals’ in his book ‘Bentley Continental, Corniche

£400 + VAT 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider 26,000 miles from new Estimate: £70,000 - £80,000* Reg No: WDG 430 MOT: May 2024 Chassis No: ZFFEZ59C000145085 ‘Here’s a milestone car. The F430 was the rst no-buts Ferrari, the rst Maranello product for which no excuses needed to be made. It was regarded by most critics as, if not perfect, as close to theoretical Ferrari road-car perfection as a Ferrari had ever been’ (John Simister, EVO magazine, March 12th 2013). Unveiled at the Geneva Salon in March 2005, the F430 Spider was modest 70kg heavier than its Berlinetta sibling. However, the structural strengthening this weight gain allowed meant that the newcomer was a dynamic match for its xed roof stablemate under most circumstances (Richard Bremner commenting, in Autocar magazine, that he was only aware of any loss of rigidity perhaps one percent of the time). Styled by Pininfarina under the guidance of Frank Stephenson, the F430 Spider featured a reinforced windscreen and twin steel rollover hoops and could retract its fabric roof under an aluminium ‘double bubble’ tonneau cover in twenty seconds. The elliptical air intakes which dominated its nose recalled those of the Ferrari 156 ‘Sharknose’ F1 car, while its tail treatment echoed that of the marque’s revered Enzo hypercar. A at underbody and highly effective rear diffuser generated real downforce as did the subtle but effective lip spoiler on the glazed engine cover. The F430 in both open and closed versions was the rst modern Ferrari to feature an electronically controlled limited slip differential or ‘E-diff’ and a steering wheel-mounted ‘manettino’ switch. The latter enabled the driver to choose between ve driving modes (altering the throttle, steering, damping and traction control settings etc in each instance). Derived from that of its F360 predecessor, the two-seater’s aluminium chassis boasted improved torsional stiffness and played host to all-round independent suspension, four-wheel vented disc brakes (complete with ABS) and power assisted rack and pinion steering. Displacing 4308cc, its ‘quad cam’, 32-valve V8 was quoted as developing 483bhp and 343lbft of torque. Allied to either manual or F1-style ‘paddle shift’ transmission (both six-speed), it enabled the F430 Spider to sprint from 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds and onto over 193mph. The engine was also an aural delight with distinct ‘key changes’ at 4,500rpm and 7,000rpm on the way to its 8,500rpm redline. Naturally, such throttle induced music was best enjoyed roof down aboard a Spider! Notable as the penultimate naturally-aspirated, V8 mid-engined Ferrari, and built in smaller numbers than its 458 successor, the F430 remains a ‘tour de force’ for any enthusiast driver.

Car Deluxe Four Page Entry 74 Supplied new via JCT600 of Leeds to English Rose Hotels (Yorkshire) Ltd, chassis 145085 was initially nished in Bianco Fuji with Red interior accents (dashboard, door cards, centre console etc) and Beige leather seats. Brie y belonging to the premier league and Welsh International footballer Robbie Savage who was playing for Blackburn Rovers at the time, his choice of a F430 Spider was echoed by none other than Lionel Messi. Retained by Yorkshire businessman A. Hussain Esq from 2007 – 2017, the Ferrari was sold to its last registered keeper six years ago. The accompanying maintenance booklet reveals that the appropriately registered ‘WDG 430’ has been serviced at 1,889, 5,630, 6,637, 11,141, 13,024, 14,307, 18,009, 23,538 and 25,316 miles. The odometer currently shows a warranted 26,000 miles. Professionally repainted in more typical shade of ‘Rosso Corsa’ at some stage, the two-seater has also had its soft-top renewed and the right-hand exhaust manifold repaired (a common F430 weakness).

& Azure’. Punctuated by a ‘Flying B’ - topped radiator grille, subtle swage line detailing and notably airy glasshouse (incorporating wraparound front rear windscreens), the singularly elegant silhouette that H.J. Mulliner bestowed upon its newcomer also ful lled customers’ requests for increased luggage space. 108 Predictably exclusive and expensive, just 71 right-hand drive Bentley S2 Continental chassis were bodied to design number 7514. The car offered here today, chassis BC106AR, was delivered in June 1960 by London dealer Jack Barclay to Capt. R.G. McLeod. Built as one-off based on the popular design number 7514, Capt. McLeod speci ed that his new Bentley, the sixth in line of seven to be ordered from Bentley Motors over the space of three decades, should have minimal overhangs at the rear, which required a full redesign of the boot and rear wings. As H.J. Mulliner was operating at full capacity at the time, FLM Panelcraft Ltd was contracted to carry out the design changes after which the car was delivered to a happy customer. Both Capt. McLeod and his extraordinary cars are well-known within BDC and RREC circles and this is the rst time in well over four decades that this car has been offered for public sale. 169 15

The Spanish Serveta Serie 80 (Series 80) launched sometime in 1980 was essentially the same scooter as the preceding Jet 200 but with different styling. On most models a new style of indicator was tted to the edge of the leg shield and side panels. A new thicker rear shock was introduced. The most noticeable difference was that the front mudguard and horn casting were now made of plastic and the horn grill was similar that of the Italian GP/DL. More comfort was gained by a new cof n-style lockable seat and a Puig leg shield box and Madrid rear rack were tted as standard. This example is said, by the vendor, to have been seen running some years ago before being stored. We note from the documents that it was owned by a military man, some might say the well-kept condition re ects this. Very original all over, the scooter appears to be in excellent condition. The speedometer shows just c.3,921km, which could easily be correct. The panels all well and the engine turns with good compression. Supplied with the original Spanish documents and owner details as well as a rare original service and instruction book.

The ACE company survived until 1927, despite the loss of its founder in 1922 when he was killed testing a new model, however, the deteriorating economic climate resulted in the ACE marque being purchased by Indian.

• Full restoration 2013 with by RLC proprietor Dean Orton ‘hands on’

• Impressive original accessories

• V5C stating 225cc for use on UK roads.

Many regard the SX200 to be the nest scooter Innocenti produced. Rimini Lambretta Centre was formed in Italy in 1994. With a professional team trained to apply fastidious attention to detail RLC has set the global bar for quality in the marque.

The BelAir 1 concept was rst on the drawing board following the request of a British customer who was very speci c in his demands. A 5-speed engine with left-hand exhaust exit and side-hinging custom seat amongst a myriad of required innovations. BelAir 2 was based on an early SX200 and used an original 1970s 225cc kit with an original Asso piston to power the motor and a genuine Royspeed sourced Amal Mk1.5 30mm carburettor. With 180W Ducati 12v ignition and the custom-built left-hand exit 42mm reverse coned exhaust with clover leaf pipe detail. The gearbox was an original 60s 5 speed box with a competition clutch. A Chronometric Smiths speedometer was tted into the handlebars. The rev counter positioned attractively on the Ulma style leg shield tool box incorporated a curved and sculpted cut-out on the toolbox lid and the cable enters the side of the polished crankcase in the style of the old ‘Rallymaster’ Lambrettas. The handlebar gear lever features 5 hand carved gear positions. The original

A previous older 1980s restoration, it is a sympathetically restored machine, retaining the 1980s paint. A rare Indian survivor today, in the UK, particularly with its in-line four engine, we are advised that it is ‘running well’. The numbers correspond to the Indian production records for 1936.

disc brake utilised a more ef cient reverse-pull system. It possesses a side opening custom adapted Everest seat. All over the scooter the attention to detail is impressive with standard Innocenti parts put back to ‘new’. Decoratively the quality paint is Industrial Green base with Metallic Black overlays and Corallo Red inner parts. Green pinstripes overlay the chromed original Innocenti wheels. The custom made SX225 badge is based on the original and the Bel Air side panel badges compliment the model. The running in decal is a unique 5-speed version. The original accessories were chosen to compliment the style of the scooter and include Super footboard extensions, original double leg shield trim, sprint rack and original Indix fuel gauge. A Rimini Lambretta Centre custom restoration of this kind would come with an extremely challenging price tag and we believe that this scooter has a very sensibly priced estimate.

With the rapid-fire patter of the auctioneer, the subtle nods, raised hands or waved catalogues of the bidders and the echo of the hammer falling, a classic auction is an exciting place to be. Even if you’re following and bidding online or by phone there’s still the thrill of the chase, the chance you could grab a bargain or beat another bidder to your prize.

H&H Classics’ classic auctions are always a great day out in great company. Our online auctions are conducted to the same high standards as our in-person events and your dream classic motorcar or motorcycle could be just a click or phone call away.



When you arrive at the auction you will need to register as a bidder and provide photo identification. Online, telephone and commission bidders can register for an account at any time on the H&H Classics website.


For our classic auctions we hold viewing days prior to auction day. Our online auctions enable viewing via the vendor by prior arrangement.


Bidding options include in person at venue, by telephone, online and commission.


Payment for successfully purchased Lots is required by midday on the day following the auction and can be made by bank transfer, debit or credit card.


Removal of Lots can take place once the auction has ended and up to 1pm on the following day. Collection of online auction Lots is arranged via the vendor.

H&H Online Auctions

H&H Online Auctions are conducted to the same exacting standards as our physical ones. Typically closing on the second Wednesday of each month, they contain a wonderfully diverse range of classic and collector cars and motorcycles for people to bid on from the comfort of their homes – or indeed anywhere they have access to a smartphone, tablet or computer.

H&H are on hand to guide clients through every stage of the Online Auction process. For sellers that means we will value your vehicle, inspect documentation, perform an HPi check and write a description to tempt potential bidders. You can supply your own high resolution images, or we can send someone to photograph the vehicle professionally. We will field any questions from interested parties during the listing window and arrange inspections if needs be (at the seller’s convenience and subject to vetting protocols). We handle the entire payment process rather than just taking a small deposit and can help process registration documents and arrange transport etc.

Bidders at our Online Auctions can ask as many questions as they want and / or go to see the vehicle(s) they are interested in. As well as HPi checking every car or motorcycle we offer (if possible), H&H ensure that sellers are never in possession of a vehicle and payment for it at the same time – a safeguard which few competitors offer. Buyers can also ask for assistance with transport and paperwork processing.

Fees are a modest 5% + VAT for cars or motorcycles plus professional photography costs (if applicable). H&H raises the bar for Online Auctions, delivering a quality service backed by thirty years of experience. Whether you are looking to buy or sell speak to one of our specialists to discover how easy and enjoyable taking part in an H&H Online Auction can be.
