Three real exotics for sale at the next H&H Classics auction online December 4th
1960 Daimler SP250 Dart. Estimate: £30,000-£36,000.



LONDON.- If you want a car that is really special and different there is just one man to go to the in the UK, Andy Saunders, who produced this extraordinary vehicle based on a Citroen chassis, now for sale with H&H Classics at their next Auction Online on December 4th.

Built in 1984 by Andy Saunders. This car was constructed entirely in steel and hand rolled. Welded to a steel frame and when first completed was finished in white pearl with base white graphics winning Best in show at the Devillbiss Show that year

It appeared at Goodwood Festival of Speed Concours in 2004 and was the subject of magazine feature after magazine feature and became a hit at motorshows all around Europe and Scandinavia. The base vehicle was a 1976 Citroen CX Pallas which received space age styling from inspiration taken from the wild prototype & custom vehicles of the late 70s and early 80s.

Indecision was given a 'more modern' twist when relaunched at Goodwood. It was painted satin silver and silver flake with detailing by Melliard. The interior stayed the same, Ox Blood with the white piped swivel seats and the heart shaped double bed in the rear.

Saunders’ work is universally appreciated and appeals to a broad audience. He has been invited to exhibit at Louis Vuitton Concours de Elegance, at The Hurlingham Club Chelsea, on more than one occasion. The Goodwood Style et Luxe Concours de Elegance, The New York Concours de Elegance in Central Park Manhattan and the Scwechzingham European Concours de Elegance. As well as fronting major motor shows across Europe, Korea and Australia and going on to having one of only 10 cars ever chosen to be displayed at the massive Hells Angels ‘Bulldog Bash’ motorcycle event.

Indecision was sold at the Earls Court Motorshow of 1987 and found a new home in the private collection of Noel Rosko who owned her up until Andy received an invite for the Style et Lux concourse at Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2004.

After it was displayed at Goodwood it was bought by a private collector in London where it has been on private display for 16 years until last year when it was invited to a three month exhibition of Andy's work entitled The Art of Kustom in the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu.

Andy Saunders grew up in Poole, on the South Coast of England, developing an early relationship with the building and customisation of cars. His journey to become one of the leading and most recognisable ‘Car Artists’ today has been achieved with commissions from the film industry, private collectors to leading vehicle manufacturers and recognition with 76 nominations for the Turner Prize.

Saunders is truly a major player on the scene today. Now the industry’s ‘go-to-guy’ for outlandish custom car projects, Saunders creations have included a car that was just 21 inches tall, a two-seater Mini and a Citroen 2CV inspired by Picasso.

One off 1985 Pontiac Fiero Finale. Estimate: £12,000 - £14,000
The only Pontiac Fiero Finale ever produced now with updated specifications and 58,000 miles on the clock is estimated to sell for £12,000 to £14,000.

It is a RHD five-speed manual and has had extensive work done including a revised body styling, daytime running lights, a new carbon dash, new seats, kick plates, a new set of tyres and a complete respray.

It has a special registration plate and an MOT until September 2020.

Antony Clayton, the designer of this unique cars, says: “When I designed the FIERO FINALE for Candy Apple Cars, it was very well received at the Geneva Motor Show and body kits were available soon afterwards. In 2002 I bought a completed Fiero Finale, and in the last year have considerably up dated the design, as can be seen from the enclosed photographs.”
