Bonhams|Cars is geared up to present its Golden Age of Motoring Sale on November 3, hosted at its New Bond Street location and timed to run alongside the annual London to Brighton Vintage Car Run.
This event will present 31 vehicles for sale, 21 of which have manufacture dates from before 1905, making them eligible for future editions of the long-running veteran endurance event.
Two cars included in the sale have been registered for this year’s Run, meaning they can be bought at the auction on Friday and participate in the run on Sunday. These cars include a 1904 Richard-Brasier 16hp Type O Four Cylinder Side-Entrance Tonneau with matching numbers and a complete restoration, along with a 1901 Gasmobile 9hp Three-Cylinder Stanhope — the only restored Gasmobile known.
Three lots from the Brown Brothers, Ltd are also included: a 1905 Brown 18/20hp Four-Cylinder Side Entrance Tourer, a 1903 Brown 8hp Twin-Cylinder Rear-Entrance Tonneau and a 1905 Brown 490cc Motorcycle.
Other lots in the sale include a 1903 Gladiator 10hp Twin-Cylinder Rear Entrance Tonneau with over 40 London to Veteran Runs in its history, a 1912 Isotta-Fraschini Tipo PM Roadster, a 1914 Rolls-Royce 40/50hp Silver Ghost Salamanca originally commissioned by the Rothschild family and a 1903 Wolseley 7 1/2hp Twin Cylinder that was driven on the Run in 1972 by Graham Hill.
