Anglia’s biggest ever sale results in its biggest ever price

It seems that Anglia Car Auctions is widening both the volume and standard of cars offered at its quarterly classic sales: more than 260 cars went under the hammer at its 13 June auction, and the highest achiever was a Maserati 3500 GT that sold for £117,600.

The 1962 Maserati coupe was imported to the UK by its second owner in 1986, and has been stored ever since. The matching numbers Maserati was in need of restoration, although its engine was said to turn over. 

Another two-family car in need of restoration was a 1987 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth. It had been purchased new by a mature Ford enthusiast and used regularly until 2002 when it was put into storage due to the owner’s ill health.

It was later sold to its second owner who lived less than a mile from the first. Highly original, the car retains all its factory dated panels and is believed to be wearing its factory paint. It was sold with a warranted 59,449 miles on the clock for £47,250 - more than doubled its estimate.

A fully restored Escort Mk4 RS Turbo sold for just under £46,000 – more than £20,000 over estimate. And the second to last Capri produced proved popular: the 1987 280 Brooklands fetched nearly £15,000.

Other interesting lots included a Mk3 Mini saloon that had been imported from South Africa a year ago; it sold for £3,885. A rare Dimma and Turbo Technics upgraded Peugeot 205 GTi sold well, achieving almost £8,000 even though it was in need of recommissioning.
