Busby Auctions of Bridport, Dorset, are delighted to have been appointed by the executors agents for the late John Coombs to handle the sale of a large number of spares and parts from the stores.

John Coombs was a racing driver and later entrant of such greats as Mike Hawthorn, Roy Salvadori and Graham Hill. While more widely known for his Jaguar connection, Coombs of Guildford being a celebrated and favoured agent for the Coventry marque, John's personal automotive interests stretched far and wide.

Guy Loveridge, consulting with Busby's on this sale, said: "I knew John slightly towards the end of his life, chatting with him extensively at Monaco, when I raced in the historics there in 2008. He never lost his zest for life, nor passion for anything to do with exotic or competition motor cars.

 "I'm delighted to be able to assist with this sale and to highlight items, from not just C, D and E Type Jaguars, but also Porsche 356, BMW / Bristol engines and Bugatti items as well.

"We have also drawn in from Monaco items related to John and his competition activities and his long retirement on the Riviera."

Bidding will be via a timed auction availble on www.Invaluable.com with a Buyers Commission of 13% + VAT on the hammer price. You will need to register to take part.

Viewing is Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm and on the last day of the sale.
