A strong variety of classics from many marques and across a wide range of estimates will be looking for new owners at ACA’s April 1-2 sale

Anglia Car Auctions’ next event runs across the first two days of the month, with its catalogue offering a truly eclectic range of classics ranging in age from the 1930s to the 2000s.There’s a broad mix of marques and models too, with estimates starting in the region of four figures and climbing to six. To say there’s something for everyone feels like selling this one short, with the sale offering far more than our chosen picks.

Recent news confirming the popularity of classic Ford models will leave fans of the Blue Oval satisfied, as there are several tasty treats on offer. A race-prepared 3.0-litre Capri caught our eye, anticipated to sell for between £18,000 and £22,000; in addition comes a low-mileage 2.0 Laser, restored in 2017 and estimated at £7000-£9000. An early example of the Escort XR3i is also likely to appeal to many, especially as it’s traveled just 39,741 miles from new in 1984; it is guided at £15,000-£18,000.

One of several Bavarian beauties, we’ve highlighted an E34 5 Series Touring that could be a bit of a bargain come auction day, although two E24 6 Series – valued at between £12,000 and £16,000 – are also exceptionally appealing, as is a 1987 E28 5 Series estimated at £7000-£9000.

The more unusual offerings include a 1967 Fiat 1100R Familiale, imported into the UK in 2019 and now expected to sell for £8000-£12,000. Alongside comes a 1957 Goggomobil T300, the German two-stroke microcar that’s guided at £6000-£8000. A 1973 NSU RO80 has recently emerged from 13 years in storage; currently showing 47,230 miles, it could be yours for £9000-£10,500. Meanwhile, a rare late-model Wartburg from 1990 could sell for as little as £1000 according to its auction guide price.

Two lots in the sale are eligible for the one of the most famous classic car events in the world – the Mille Miglia. The first is a beautiful 1955 Mercedes 190SL, for which you will pay six figures. The second, however, offers a far cheaper entry ticket: a rare Lancia Aurelia B10, modified in period by Lancia’s technical department and entered into the great race in 1952. It is currently in ‘barn find’ condition (with gorgeous patina), but at an estimate of £18,000-£22,000, Mille Miglia-eligible cars do not come much cheaper.
