Beaulieu registers jumble boom


A Bugatti T40 project, a barn-find Amilcar and the unique Eolia streamliner (C&SC, April 2007) - the latter a snip at £100k - were just a few of the rarities to be found at the 2010 Beaulieu International Autojumble.
The event garnered more than 38,000 visitors in the National Motor Museum grounds from 10-12 September. There were more than 2100 stalls showcasing car parts and memorabilia.
"We had a record number of stands this year and they were sold out three and a half weeks before the event," said Beaulieu's Margaret Rowles.
Covered in moss, the '68 Mustang convertible on the Automart stand was on offer for just £8500. Advertised as a runner, it came with the vendor's plea: 'Leave it green to upset the Mustang Owners' Club!'
Scale restorations were a hit, with the rusted hulk of an Austin J40 pedal car up for £300 - making one punter's purchase of a restored example at £500 look a bargain.
Next year's event will be from 10-11 September 2011, and the MotorMart Autojumble on 14-15 May. See for details.
