IT APPEARS Charterhouse's latest collection of vintage and classic cars has gone green – but only in colour.

Entries are well underway for the July sale, organised by the Sherborne-based auction house for The Haynes International Motor Museum at Sparkford, Somerset.

Charterhouse's Richard Bromell said: "Choosing the colour of a car can be a very personal choice.

"This combined with certain colours being more popular than others in various decades can provide some interesting colours.

"There again, there are some cars you expect to see a certain colour such as a red Ferrari, although they were also supplied new in a broad range of other colours including yellow, blue, silver and white.”

Among the entries this year are a couple of Bentleys, both Balmoral green; a 1965 Mini Countryman in almond green for £20,000; a 1950 classic bronze green Land River Series I costing £21,000-23,000, or even a 1960 British Racing Green-coloured 1960 Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite valued at £10,000 to £12,000.

The sale is set for Wednesday, July 14, and Charterhouse says it is still taking entries.
