Anglia Car Auctions will host its third classic sale of the year this weekend (June 11-12), with a superb mix of everyman and prestige vehicles set to cross the block.
The firm’s King’s Lynn base will once again be open for public attendance, but remote bidding options remain and the action will be streamed live on YouTube.
Several marques are particularly well-represented, which only serves to highlight the diversity on offer. For instance, a wide range of BMWs sees a last-of-the-line 635CSi estimated at £16,000-£18,000 join a couple of 1973 2002s in both tin-top and Cabriolet guises, a 1987 316 showing only 10,866 miles from new, and an E46 M3. However, there are no fewer than six Chevrolets, including a 1962 Corvair Van to offer something of a contrast, while a more utilitarian twist comes courtesy of a 10-strong line-up of Land Rovers book-ended by a 1954 Series 1 and a 2013 double-cab Defender.
Elsewhere, there’s plenty for Blue Oval fans to peruse. It’s not too often we see 1950s Fords at auction, but this sale is set to feature two 103E Populars, a 1955 Popular Special, a 1954 Zephyr Six and a 1958 100E. Moving into the ’60s, you’ll also find a 1962 Consul Classic at an estimated £7500-£9500, plus a 1963 Mk1 Cortina Estate and a 1965 Mk3 Zodiac both guided at £6000-£8000. Newer Fords include Fiesta XR2s in both Mk1 and Mk2 guises, a 1986 Capri 2.0 Laser, a 1988 Escort RS Turbo and a rare Mk6 Escort RS2000 4×4, while rounding things off are two Mk1 Mondeos comprising a one-owner 1.8 GLX and a Verona showing just 23,584 miles.
Staying with low-mileage former street furniture, a 27,525 mile Austin Metro Vanden Plas will join proceedings alongside a 28,113-mile Rover 214 SEi from 1995, a 1988 Mk2 Vauxhall Astra 1.3L showing 42,691 miles and a 2001 Volvo S40 that’s covered a mere 33,300 miles. There’s a pleasing amount of no-reserve entries too, with a 1958 MG Magnette ZB, a 1965 Rover P6 2000, a lovely 1966 Hillman Super Minx, a 1971 Austin Maxi 1750, a 1990 Peugeot 205 1.1 GL and a particularly attractive 1993 Range Rover Vogue SE among the many potential bargains.
At the more expensive end of the scale, a rare Renault Sport Spider is expected to command £25,000-£28,000, with a 1961 Morgan Plus 4 guided at £20,000-£25,000 and a very late MGC registered in 1970 estimated at £18,000-£20,000. A 2002 Bentley Arnage Red label is also expected to command up to £24,000, but the stand-out is likely to be a 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 FHC that carries an estimate of £45,000-£50,000.
With oddballs such as a 1989 Bedford Danbury Motor Caravan and a Skoda Rapid fitted with a Rover V8 engine also included, plus a huge selection of memorabilia, there’s sure to be something for all tastes and budgets. See the full catalogue at angliacarauctions.co.uk.
