Three-car barnfind bonanza lands in King's Lynn


A 1948 Bentley MkVI is expected to make £7-11,000 when it leads a trio of rediscovered classics at Anglia Car Auctions’ forthcoming sale on 6 April.

Chassis B292BH has been dry stored since 1969 and features an aluminium body by James Young.

Minor defects aside, the luxury saloon is said to be ‘in very good, and largely original, condition throughout’.

Saved from a 35-year barn exile is a 1936 MG PB. It is said to be ‘remarkably complete’ and carries an estimate of £8-14,000.

The last project is a 1974 BMW 2002, which was reputably the property of Lord Beaverbrook. Carrying no reserve, it could be the bargain of the bunch.

The auction also includes a host of ‘ready to use’ classics including a 1965 Mercedes-Benz 230SL Pagoda (£28-35,000), a 1965 Ford Thunderbird Convertible (£16-£18,000) and a Super Accessories Austin Seven Special (£4-6000).
