Classic cars under the hammer

The entire collection of a classic car museum put together by a Yorkshire businessman is going under the hammer.

The Exmoor Classic Car Collections was a retirement project for Stephen Johns when he moved to the West Country 12 years ago. Before that he ran a pyjama manufacturing business in Keighley, West Yorkshire for 45 years.

Highlights of the auction are:

  • A 1972 Ferrari 246GTS Dino Spyder, expected to fetch between £100,000 and £120,000.

  • A 1927 Bugatti Type 40 tourer, expected to fetch between £80,000 and £100,000.

  • A 1923 Rolls-Royce 20hp Doctor's Coupe by Mitchells of Nottingham, estimated to sell for between £38,000 and £45,000.

Our reporter Bob Cruise went to take a look at some of the cars.
