Update on Bristol Cars auctions

The Heritage Trust Is well supported by a large number of generous backers (thank you to one and all!)  and is determined to salvage all the Heritage archives, drawings and plans, and the many filing cabinets of factory correspondence from the earliest days onwards.

The BOHT also intend to purchase, as a very minimum,  such lots as have been cherry picked from the archive plan-chests. These include: 

  • The artists sketches of early models. 
  • We must keep the group of  small models of prototypes together. 
  • We will ask people who buy photos that we have not  already got if we may have a scan for the archives.
  • We also intend to buy a selection of the body bucks for repair, restoration, conservation and public display . NB starting price in these is £5000 each-  and that’s per end! 

Commission of 18% is payable, and confusing messages about VAT on top have emerged from the liquidators, clarification  is needed. 

If you would like to support us in salvaging this historic material from the sad wreckage of this once great enterprise, please get in touch.

Yours in Bristol

Dr Stefan Cembrowicz, Chair.
