Very rare Bedford Utilabrake van direct for classic auction

After the success of Classic Car Auctions timed sale last month, the CCA team are now inviting entries for their live online auction on the 27th June. One of the most interesting lots is a very rare Bedford Utilabrake van belonging to Wheeler Dealers TV presenter Mike Brewer.Gary Dunne Classic Car Auctions Manager commented: “We are delighted to be able to offer our next auction as a live online sale. We have had a tremendous response from our vendors and have some very exciting entries confirmed.”

Of the Lots currently confirmed, there are two wonderful rare vehicles from the personal collection of Wheeler Dealers TV presenter Mike Brewer.

The first is a very rare 1960 Bedford Utilabrake Van, an original Martin Walker factory converted 10 seater. This van featured in Series 14 with Mike and Ed. The second is again a rare car, the 1968 Fiat 500F Berlina which underwent a full body and paint restoration in Italy in 2013. At the same time, the interior was retrimmed and the engine and gearbox were overhauled. Both vehicles were driven to CCA’s secure storage facility and are offered at No Reserve and £7,000 to £9,000 respectively.

Vendors can take advantage of CCAs premium offering of secure storage, professional photo and videography and potential one to one viewings the week before the auction for £300 which also includes the catalogue entry fee.

If vendors are unable to get their car to CCA, they can of course still consign their car and provide their own images and video to promote its sale at the auction.

For this auction, the premiums will be 4 per cent plus VAT for the vendor and 10 per cent plus VAT for the buyer.

The Classic Car Auctions team are now consigning cars and if you are interested please get in touch with them and they can help you through the process. They can be contacted on 01926 640888 or by email

The Live Online Auction takes place on Saturday 27th June.
