The Great Results of the Osenat Sale in Alsace

The catalog of the Osenat sale in Alsace was already well stocked. But the house has added a little surprise with several barn exits to restore to complete the picture. Result: a sale that kept its promises!

The Osenat sale in Alsace in brief
Scheduled for December, postponed to January, offered nice lots. Exhibited at the end of last week in an old factory in Rhinau, the sale was made exclusively online.

The reason was sanitary, the planned room being able to accommodate “only” 100 people. Except that in addition to the catalog already well supplied, there was a huge barn find with cars at low prices. Something to attract people.

Here are the results, free of charge.

The stars of the sale
THE star of the Osenat sale in Alsace was this Hispano-Suiza H6B 32cv from 1921. Bodywork in skiff with wood and copper rivets by Duqesne in Tourcoing. Well maintained, this car has been driven a lot but has kept its original bodywork. We had bet on an estimate higher than €500,000, and it ended at €529,000.

Another big prize for a Frenchwoman with the Talbot-Lago T26 Cabriolet from 1950. In very good condition and perfectly driving. It was estimated between 150 and 200,000 € but is content with 131,000 €.

There was also a 1935 Panhard & Levassor X73 CS Spéciale, the one that made the cover of the catalogue. Its body showed the weight of the years, but its non-jammed engine made it a good basis for restoration. Estimated between 25 and 50,000 €, it sells for 22,000 €.

The Madeleine and Jean Bohn Collection
Three cars from the collection of this mechanic-loving pastry chef were on the program for the Osenat sale in Alsace.

The 1952 Panhard Dyna X86 Cabriolet, bought in the 90s, has never been finished restoring. Estimated between 10 and 15,000 €, it ends at 7,700 €.

Then the beautiful Traction 7C Cabriolet from 1934. Restored at the end of the 90s, it needed a restart. Estimated between 40 and 70,000 €, it sells for 48,500 €.

Finally there was a Delage Di12, which shares many parts with the Delahaye 134. It is part of a series of cars bodied with Citroën bodies between October 36 and September 37. To be restarted and estimated between 40 and 70,000 €, she leaves for €44,000.

The mysterious lot 94 of the catalog kept its promises. The Bellifontaine auction house had promised several barn-raised cars… and they were there!

For example, there was a beautiful blue Peugeot 190 from 1931 with its Weimann bodywork, to be restored, estimated between 1000 and 2000 € and finally sold for 800 €.
The batch of three Citroën Rosalie (a Type 8, a Type 10 and a Type 10 Taxi) goes for 1250 €.
The batch of two Peugeot 204s goes for €500 (est. €600-1200).

We noted the 1968 Datsun Farilady, a 1600, (to go further: From the DC-3 to the Datsun Sports 2000, Nissan’s first sporting steps) which would be the only one in France. In good condition, it is estimated between 17 and 20,000 €, it does not find a buyer.

In addition to the X73, there was an X71 Sedan in the catalog of the Osenat sale in Alsace. Complete but in need of restoration, it was estimated between 15 and 18,000 € and is selling for 14,200 €.

We also noted a D.B Le Mans Luxe from 1960. A ready-to-run rarity, estimated between €25 and 35,000 and sold for €20,500.On the popular side, there were some beautiful rolling pieces at the Osenat sale in Alsace. First, a Renault 10, completely restored, part at 6100€ for an estimate between 5000 and 7000 €.

Same story for the 1963 Simca P60 which has been able to drive since its restoration but had to be restarted. It reaches 5600€ for an estimate between 6 and 8000 €.

More recent, the Panhard 24CT required a restart and went for 11,400 €, above its estimate (between 6 and 8,000 €).

There were also a few Youngtimers in the catalog of the Osenat sale in Alsace.

We noted the 1982 Audi Quattro, the first series. Never restored, in good condition, estimated between 50 and 70,000 €, it does not find a buyer.

If you want to ride with your hair in the wind, the 1989 BMW Z1 with front fenders and a new door mechanism… was estimated between 45 and 50,000 € but will settle for 35,500 €.

There was also a Peugeot 205 GTI, a car from 1984, with the 1.6-litre 105 hp engine. In good condition, it is estimated between 11 and 13,000 €, it sells for 10,200 €, so not all of them go for a fortune!
