One of the top lots at Anglia Car Auctions' sale on 3 November was a 1968 Triumph Herald 13/60 Convertible (main image).
Following a £10k body-off restoration and boasting a full MoT, it comfortably busted its top estimate to make £8085.
As far as sales go, the King’s Lynn event was very enticing with some some superb grass-roots classics going for affordable money,
Also selling well, though, was a 1975 Mini 1275GT that accrued £8820. The reason for the high price was that it is believed to be the only Clubman 1275GT painted in Brazilian Brown Metallic from the factory, a special-order retirement gift for a British Leyland manager who wanted the Vanden Plas colour.
Of a welter of Porsches that came under the hammer, a 160,000-mile 1979 911SC targa with tax and test looked very good value at £7350, despite the high mileage.
Likewise, a 1984 924 with a year's ticket and a private plate for £475 and a 1986 928 for £2677 seemed like good buys.
The big money was reserved for a brace of examples of the increasingly popular 912, both 1966 left-hookers easing above their top estimates to make £18,900 and £26,250 respectively.
Citroëns were popular, too. As well as our favourite DS21 for under £2k, there was a 1986 CX Prestige that went for £3425.
Star lot from the French manufacturer, though, was the extremely low-mileage 1983 Citroën GSA with one registered owner that made just over £5000.
In terms of speed for money, nothing could compete with the 145mph 1990 TVR 400SE for just over £3k.
