At long last, ADO16 prices are finally starting to push in the right direction - reinforcing the fact that the £500 “banger” days are a thing of the past.

You may recall that ADO16.info was recently invited to look at a 1972 Vanden Plas Princess over at Mathewsons Classic Cars, which has recently undergone a full restoration. For those not in the know, Mathewsons is central to the popular TV programme “Bangers & Cash” which airs on the TV station “Yesterday Channel“.

The car went through auction at Mathewsons on the 4th February 2022, and we’re delighted to report that it achieved a final price of £12,250 – as far as we’re aware, a record for an ADO16.

See the auction here:

We were asked what we thought the car could achieve in auction, and our estimate was between £8,800 and £10,000.

At long last, ADO16 prices are finally starting to push in the right direction – reinforcing the fact that the £500 “banger” days are a thing of the past.

We’re confident that the new owner will be very pleased with their new purchase, and with some tweaks they’ll have a stunning car that will give them many years of pleasure.

Michael's interest in cars started from an early age, when he would spend time in his Dad's garage observing many a job being undertaken. Naturally as Michael grew up, cars were firmly a part of his DNA, and as such the interest has gone from strength to strength. Having always had a keen interest in all things British, it probably wouldn't surprise you to know that his portfolio of cars have always been British made.
