BMW 2002 Turbo project makes £25k at Anglia Car Auctions

Published 26 August 2014

A 1975 BMW 2002 Turbo restoration project made £25,410 when it went under the hammer at Anglia Car Auctions over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Offered with no reserve, the two-owner car has so-far covered 47,921 miles but is now indeed of a full restoration, including new sills.

There’s some good news for the buyer, though – the car does run and all of its Turbo-specific parts and trim are there and unmolested (although it’s currently on Minilite-style wheels).

The Turbo was just one of several high-value items that passed through the doors at the King’s Lynn-based auction house, the most expensive of which was a 1964 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII. Restored in the Nineties, the car had been well looked after and fetched £34,650.

Also fetching strong money was a 1969 Mercedes 280SL ‘Pagoda’ (£28,350) and a 1977 Triumph TR6 with just 2000 miles on the clock (£26,775).

You didn’t have to have nearly £30k in your pocked to come away with a car, though. A 1989 Rover 820E with 38,000 miles on the clock and an MoT until June next year sold for £1050.

A 1996 Volkswagen Golf GTI Anniversary – one of just 1000 made – fetched £1750. The one-owner car had 109,000 miles on the clock and came with every MoT since new. With prices for MkIIs on the rise, it surely can’t belong before MkIII values follow.
