A ‘flat floor’ 1961 Jaguar E-Type tops the early entries at Anglia Car Auctions’ 25 January sale with an estimate of £95,000 – 125,000. The matching-numbers Series I 3.8 Roadster was given an £18,000 mechanical overhaul in 2016 and recently received a full service, plus new wheels and tyres.
The sale also features a 1988 BMW M3 Evolution II which has been entered without reserve. One of 500 built, it spent the majority of its life in Belgium prior to the vendor’s purchase in 2012 and subsequent import into the UK. Now showing 217,831km, it comes complete with a service book containing more than 30 stamps, original radio, tool-kit, books and wallet.
Other ‘80s icons include a 1986 Audi UR-Quattro at £24,000 – 29,000, a 55,240-mile 1986 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth which underwent a recent cam-belt service (estimate £35,000 – 40,000), and a 1983 Porsche 911 Turbo with 110,000 miles on the clock (estimate £55,000 – 65,000).
A rare X-Pack optioned 1981 Ford Capri 3.0 Ghia has been consigned with a guide of £18,000 – 24,000. The Forrest Green example was supplied new by Trimoco with a wide-arch X-Pack body kit, together with X-Pack upgrades to the suspension, diff, exhaust and manifolds (detailed in its original bill of sale) and has formed part of a private collection since 1996.
Highlights among the catalogue at SWVA on 31 January include a three-owner 1971 MGB GT with 68,340 miles and a wealth of history and receipts (estimate £2,500 – 3,000); a two-owner 1960 Austin A40 with only 39,000 miles from new (estimate £4,250 – 4,750); a 1969 Morris Mini Cooper which has seen just 1,000 miles use since its restoration in 2014 (estimate £11,750 – 12,500).
