H&H brings the glamour of classic car auctions back to Buxton
1954 MG TF 1250.

LONDON.- H&H Classics auctioned cars at The Pavilion Gardens, Buxton from 1993 to 2015 when the Octagon Theatre closed for refurbishment – but as of April 25th 2018 the company will be back again selling classic cars in this charming setting.

One of the many interesting cars to be offered by H&H Classic for sale is an MG TF 1250 like the one that was turned into a Corgi toy for children. It is estimated to sell for £24,000 to £26,000 rather more than the toy version. Launched in 1953 its engine was later boosted to a 1500 version.

H&H Classics is one of just five classic car auctioneers to have sold a car for more than $11m. Three years ago a Ferrari 250 GT SWB sold for £7,550,400, and a 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB made £2,207,920.

Commenting on the company’s return to Buxton, Simon Hope, Chairman of H&H Classics, says: “We are delighted to be coming back to Buxton where we enjoyed so many successful sales over a period of 22 years. The Pavilion Gardens have a wonderful atmosphere and provide a great backdrop for classic cars. Indeed, Buxton was a stage on the RAC Rally for many years.”

H&H Classics will hold three sales at Buxton this year: April 25th 2018, July 18th 2018 and November 28th 2018.

The company’s most notable sale at Buxton was ex-Dr Benjafield 1934 Lagonda M45 Fox & Nicholl Le Mans Team Car which sold for £435,250 in July 2005.
