Nearly 150 classic cars were sold during Anglia Car Auctions' 23 August auction, with more than £950,000 changing hands and a top price of £34,650 being achieved by a 1964 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk3.
The 78,000-mile car was restored in the late 1990s with aluminium body panels, and was said to have been maintained to a high standard. It had been in the care of the vendor for 12 years, and was sold with a bulging history file.
A 1977 Porsche 911S sold for £29,400 – just £400 above its lower estimate – while a 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda was sold for £28,350 – just short of its £29,000 lower estimate.
A 1977 Triumph TR6 that had covered just 2000 miles was driven away for £26,775.
Also from Triumph's stable was a 1964 TR4. The original right-hand-drive UK car was fitted with a Surrey top, and looked well-bought at £15,750.
Though it didn't fetch the highest figure of the day, the £24,150 paid for a 1935 Austin LL Taxi confounded pundits, the hammer falling well above its £18,000 pre-sale upper estimate. The car's originality, as well as several appearances in television series helped to generate a great deal of interest before the auction.
Leading the bargain charge was a 1970 Alfa Romeo Giulia 1300TI Super, which fell well short of its £4750 lower estimate at £3412. The car had come from Holland, where it had spent 25 years in storage.
Also looking like good value for money was a 1984 Citroën 2CV6 Charleston, which fetched £2625. It had been fitted with a new chassis in 1999.
A tidy 1987 Peugeot 205 GTI in desirable pre-cat 1.9-litre specification sold for £3045. Though it had covered an impressive 167,000 miles, the history file showed a cambelt change less than 17,000 miles ago.
