Classic car in Woodbridge auction


Neals auction sale to be held at The Theatre Street Saleroom on the February 26 may hold the key if you have always fancied sitting behind the wheel of a Bentley.

First registered on the 9th November 1984 the Bentley Eight is lot 152 in the catalogue which will be sold at midday.

The car carries an MOT until August 2014 and has a recorded mileage of 98,903.

Now sporting a cream livery it would appear the vehicle would be equally suitable for social, domestic and pleasure purposes but how about donning a peaked cap and using it for wedding hire?

This special car has a guide price of £4,000 to £5,000.

The sale includes the usual variety of household furniture and effects with a good selection of country furniture, a selection of silver and jewellery, postcards, stamps and a variety of toys including Corgi and other models.
