Warwick GT for sale via auction


This is Duncans old car and seems to be very well presented. Full details via the link. I have no connection with the sale or seller.

Duncan, did you display this car at a Triumph day event Duxford in 2004 or thereabouts?

Interesting to see something I've never noticed on pics of this car before. The small Scottish saltire badge on the wing. Any story behind this?

Hey! Less of the insults about vacuum machines under the dashboard! I've got one of these too.

Actually, on mine, it's a means of directing hot air from the new heater to the screen ducts.

Clear front screen? On the inside maybe, but Im sure attracting plenty of bugs on the outside.

Did this sell?

The sales achieved on other lots on his site are rather less than I would have anticipated, or perhaps I'm just very out of touch.

Certainly the 25K base estimate is not much more than the "cost of parts" to restore one, and bears no comparison with the valuations we've heard of recently.

Because so few running P\W get to market, is it possible to value our cars, based on actual sale achieved prices?

My feeling is that part of the problem is lack of awareness of the marque (despite the best efforts of this site and the club). I've never met one single classic car enthusiast who's recognised my Peerless or, when told what it was, was aware of the history. IMHO, 25k for that car was a bit of a steal but what do I know?

By contrast, GK's, which are even rarer and to many just as much unknown consistently achieve good money. Try getting close to GK money for a Warwick 350, not a hope in hell, I'd say.
