Convertible Mercedes pair tops the bill at Anglia Car Auctions

| 14 Nov 2013

Top-sellers at Anglia Car Auctions' 9 November sale in King's Lynn were both Mercedes convertibles.

A one-owner 280SL (main image) made £75,600 while a restored Mercedes 190SL (above) was a good way behind at £52,500.

The 170-lot sale featured loads of interesting cars and a healthy smattering of Yanks including a 1965 Cadillac De Ville Convertible that made £14,750.

Several lots caught C&SC's eye including a BMW 2002 Turbo that made £35k and a pristine Hawk-built AC Ace replica powered by a Triumph straight six at just under £30k.

A 1968 Mini Cooper 1275 'S' made £13k, it's appeal being dented by the fact that it was non-matching numbers, but the same originality issue didn't affect an expensively restored 1966 Fiat 500 which was mega money at £13,650.

Another car we highlighted pre-sale, the ex-Peking to Paris 1960 Rover P4 looked great value for potential rallyists at £6195.

Bargains against current market values included a 1966 Sunbeam Tiger at £22,575 while almost £6000 was paid for a TR3A that had been stored for 25 years and in need of complete restoration.
