Mathewsons 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 Matthewsons Collection (Museum) at that time. Here is a link to the post from that visit –
