With view­ing the day be­fore its sale see­ing pun­ters out in force, Anglia Car Auc­tions was look­ing good for a strong sale, and the added bonus of warm sun­shine put a spring in the sale’s step. That trans­lated into keen bid­ding, good prices and some bar­gains too. With just shy of 300 lots on of­fer, those want­ing to make a late bid had a bit of a wait on their hands. Even so, auc­tion­eer Jim Ro­nan dis­patched 50 or so lots in the first hour. In­ter­est was re­mark­able, with the AC spe­cial in par­tic­u­lar gen­er­at­ing a se­ri­ous num­ber of calls and email en­quiries, es­pe­cially from Ger­many, while the Mercedes-Benz 190 SL that had been in long-term, one-lady own­er­ship at­tracted lots of in­ter­est. ACA per­formed well in this sale across all price spec­trums, but there were bar­gains to be had too – one par­tic­u­larly lucky punter bagged a sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion Citroën Visa for just over £400.

ACA’s next sale is on 17 June.
