Thousands of enthusiasts set to flock to Beaulieu

| 12 Aug 2013

More than 2000 stands will pack Beaulieu’s International Autojumble on 7-8 September.

One of the highlights on the classic car calendar is set to attract thousands of fans from across Europe in search of parts and spares covering everything from engines and gearboxes, to magazines and books.

The Dealermart and Automart will sell a range of classic cars with an eclectic collection of vehicles on offer, from restoration projects to concours competitors.

Lots to go under the hammer at Bonhams’ auction on Saturday include two Sunbeams – a 1926 3-litre twin-cam Super Sports (£130-160,000) and a 1912 Coupe de l’Auto replica (£90-120,000) – as well as a host of automobilia.

The latter will focus on the late Ron Hickman’s – former head of styling at Ford and director at Lotus’ – collection of cutaway technical illustration, plus his entire motoring library.

Beaulieu events manager, Judith Maddox, said: “With strong demand for stand spaces, this year’s autojumble looks set to be another success. With just a few single spaces left and enquiries still coming in, we anticipate another full house.”

New for this year is a free shuttle bus that will be operating on Saturday and Sunday, running continuously between Brockenhurst train station and the Beaulieu Coach Park from 8.30am to 6pm.
