Company press release.

EX-CHRIS EVANS FERRARI, ‘TOP 10' AND A RILEY ELF WITH A CRIMINAL PAST HEAD BARONS' JULY 17TH SANDOWN PARK SALE  A 1989 Ferrari 328GTS which was formerly part of the collection of Ferrari aficionado extraordinaire, Chris Evans, heads the entry for Barons' sale at Sandown Park on Tuesday July 17th. Other notable lots in a wide-ranging entry list include the registration number 'TOP 10' and a Riley Elf that was once used as the getaway car in an armed robbery…

The stunning bright red Ferrari 328GTS, one of the last ABS-equipped examples of this model, has covered just 25,000 miles over its lifetime. It comes complete with a comprehensive service record documenting services at 1,500, 5,316, 7,550, 7,664, 15,666, 17,049, 18,926, 19,634, 22,569, and 23,059 miles! It carries an estimate of £32,000-£36,000.

Barons' Managing Director Laurence Sayers Gillan said, 'Chris Evans is now arguably as famous for his incredible collection of Ferraris as he is as a media personality. Any car that has come from his collection will have received the most detailed care and attention, and we are delighted to be offering the 328GTS at Sandown Park.'

Another headline lot is the registration number 'TOP 10' – highly appropriate for a sale that includes a car once owned by a famous DJ. The guide price, for any bidder thinking of putting this registration number at the top of their own personal hit parade, is £20,000-30,000.

EX-CHRIS EVANS FERRARI, ‘TOP 10' AND A RILEY ELF WITH A CRIMINAL PAST HEAD BARONS' JULY 17TH SANDOWN PARK SALE  

The 1969 Riley Elf MKIII has covered 57,000 miles and been in the care of a single owner from new. Used as a local runabout in Westminster, where it was always parked in the underground car park when not in use, it has experienced one spectacularly exciting episode in an otherwise genteel life. In the early 1970s it was stolen from outside its owner's home in central London and used as the getaway car in an armed robbery. It was recovered completely undamaged, the only souvenir of its adventure being a bullet left on the back seat!

The sale also includes a fabulous restoration project for E-type Jaguar fans. The 1967 Series 1 1/2 4.2 FHC was discovered some time ago, along with a second E-type, in a Battersea garage, where it had been stored since 1984. When the vendor acquired it, restoration had already begun, but the vendor has since decided that he lacks the time to complete the project, which progressed little since he bought the car. £8,000-10,000.

Barons' entry list should appeal to a wide range of enthusiasts. First-time classic buyers could be tempted by the 1966 MG Midget (£2,500-£3,500), the 1978 MGB roadster (£2,750-£3,500), the 1981 Triumph Spitfire 1500 (£3,250-4,000), or perhaps the 1989 BMW 320i Cabriolet (£1,500-2,000).

American car buffs have three very fine 1960s' vehicles to choose from. The 1961 Chrysler 300G was bought and restored in 1997 by Chrysler UK, displayed in their head office and used for promotional and advertising purposes (£22,000-£25,000). The 1965 Ford Thunderbird Convertible has been in the same family ownership since new and comes complete with 45rpm record player (£17,000-20,000). And the 1965 Ford Mustang 289 Convertible is a fine example of the most rare variant of a hugely popular model (£21,500-£24,000).
