Classic Cars & Vehicles

The classic car department at Reeman Dansie is lead by enthusiasts, with many of us well and truly bitten by the classic car bug. Our personal interests cover a diverse range from pre war cars to modern classics from the early 2000’s, meaning we have both the passion and the expertise needed to help you with the sale of your treasured vehicle. 

From our own experiences buying vehicles as well as selling them, we know what it takes to make the process as easy and hassle-free as possible.

We hold classic car and automobilia auctions 4 times a year. These sales encompass everything from parts, number plates and garage accessories, to vehicles from emerging modern classics to pre-war cars and from tractors to commercial vehicles. 

Recent highlights include our 2023 Rolls - Royce auction which included a fabulous 1956 Silver Wraith Long Wheel Base Limousine originally made for the British Ambassador to Sudan, which sold to a European buyer for £28,000. Other notable sales include a 1981 Ford Escort Ghia, formerly owned by Princess Diana, which sold for over £50,000 to a Chilean museum.
