A 1986 BMW M3 is one of the early entries consigned for Anglia Car Auctions’ live online sale on 22-23 August. The three-owner car was imported into the UK in 1998 and recently received a £13,000 refresh, plus a service at Sytner, and now shows some 85,000km (estimate £58,000 – 65,000).
The sale is also set to feature a 31,067-mile 2004 Ferrari 575M with a guide of £58,000 – 64,000. Supplied new in the UK, it’s presented in Tour de France blue over beige hide and comes complete with manuals, wallet, car cover and two sets of keys, together with a service book and history file recording 24 visits to Ferrari main dealers up to 2018.
A brace of Mercedes-Benz 230 SLs go under the hammer at Brightwells’ timed auction on 10-13 August, each listed at £38,000 – 40,000. The 1966 example in black was recently imported from America, where it was fitted with an engine from a 280 SL and a Getrag 5-speed manual gearbox; while the white 1964 Pagoda has just two registered owners and 74,600km on the clock.
Brightwells’ Triumph TR3A – originally a left-hand drive car – has picked up a string of TR Register concours awards since emerging from a two-year nut-and-bolt restoration in 2012, with just 4,000 miles use in the past eight years (estimate £28,000 – 32,000).
Modern classics looking to find new homes at H&H’s 19 August online sale include a 34,500-mile 1998 BMW Z3M Roadster with factory hardtop, reported to be one of nine in Evergreen (estimate £23,000 – 26,000); a 1994 MG RV8 with bills for a service and overhaul in 2019 totalling £3,600 (estimate £18,000 – 22,000); and a 110,000-mile 1983 Audi Quattro, recently recommissioned and refreshed at a cost in excess of £8,000 (estimate £35,000 – 40,000).
Morris Leslie hosts its first ‘online-only’ classic car sale on 22 August, where catalogue highlights include a left-hand drive 1966 Austin Mini Cooper with a pre-sale estimate of £20,000 – 25,000. The Cooper was supplied new to a dealer in Sweden and was the subject of an extensive restoration and colour change prior to export back to the UK in 2015.
A 1967 Austin Gipsy (estimate £7,000 – 8,000) heads to Mathewsons’ final sale of the summer, also scheduled for 22 August. This example of Austin’s answer to the Land Rover has been given a body-off restoration, having originally served time with Norfolk police.
