Mathewsons Auctions 2020
April 30 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
**IMPORTANT AUCTION ANNOUNCEMENT**
Due to the ongoing government announcements regarding Coronavirus Mathewsons are making some changes to their auction on Thursday 30th April.
The VEHICLE auction will go ahead as planned but they have decided to postpone the MEMORABILIA sale – details of which will be given in due course.
Concern has been expressed about crowd numbers and as a consequence are restricting the Auction to vehicle Bidders only. Sadly, on this occasion, spectators will not be allowed entry.
Please call the Mathewsons office on 01751 474455 if you would like more information on how to make a telephone bid or leave a commission bid.
The team at Mathewsons apologises for any inconvenience these changes may cause but believe that this is the best option to take during this challenging time.
**PLEASE NOTE** ENTRY WILL BE REFUSED TO ANYONE SHOWING SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS
Mathewson’ started normal car and commercial vehicle trading in 1970, in the Bedfordshire area.
In the late 1980’s the company followed family roots to North Yorkshire and established a couple of car sales agencies in the area.
Derek Mathewson, the founder of the business, has always had an interest in classic cars and motor bikes and started his own collection from an early age. This collection, which is continually being added to, forms the basis of the Museum at the Thornton Le Dale Premises. This location is were the famous auctions also take place.
In recent years the Classic & Vintage side of the business, instead of being something of a sideline, has now become the main focus. They embarked on the auction venture in 2011 and haven’t looked back since. To say that it has gone from strength to strength is an understatement, with several auctions of interesting automobiles, motor bikes and related memorabilia being held every year.
The photo of the MG TD was taken by the publisher of carsceneinternational.com in 2016 and was in the Matthewson Collection (Museum) at that time. Here is a link to the post from that visit –
