As we all ease tentatively from lockdown, auctions, shows and events are starting to emerge too. In occasional news round-ups we’ll bring you news of some of them. This week we feature our friends at Anglia Auctions’ last sale over the May Bank Holiday. From hundred lots spread over two days we pick a few we think you might like.
Lot 370. 1989 XR2. 1,597cc. Described by the seller as being unrestored and unmodified, with a warranted mileage of just 58,083. It is still fitted with the original exhaust, supplying dealer boot badge, number plates and rear window sticker. Four registered owners. The history file was good. Sold for £20,250.
Lot 419. A smashing ’91 Delta HF in Martini colours. The Delta looked to have been well cared for with a number of previous owners from the Lancia owners club, always a good sign of a good car. A new radiator, brakes and pipes were all present at inspection. Although it had 121,000 on the clock it came with a good service pack, full history and recent receipts. It looked like the steal of the auction to us when it sold for £10,000.
Lot 382. 1970 88in SII Pick up. It’s impossible not to love a Landie, isn’t it? This one had undergone significant work, including seats, floors, door tops, lights, and it was painted in Land Rover Pastel Green. Noteworthy was the original breathless lump had been replaced with a Land Rover 200 Tdi diesel unit. No bad thing in our view. Sold for £16,700. Good purchase.
Lot 213. In red, the best colour, a 1969 MGC GT, once owned by Lewis Hamilton’s dad! It presented itself well on its shiny wires and money had been spent sorting out the mechanicals such as diff, wheel bearings, suspension and so on. It had a guide price of £18-20k, but couldn’t find any takers on the day. So, if you fancy bathing in the glow of a world champ and enjoying a lovely MGC, here’s
