Americans invade next Anglia sale

Published 12 May 2015

From classic American project motors, to heart-pumping muscle cars and fire-breathing racers – the next sale at Anglia car auctions has something for everyone.

Highlights include a late Corvette Stingray, Dodge Charger, two Studebakers projects and a Ford Econoline van, all going under the hammer at the King’s Lynn site on Saturday, 13 June

The Corvette C3 Stingray L82 is a European specification car. Finished in dark red and described as a good runner in need of cosmetic attention, the estimate is £4250 to £4750.

And the third-generation Dodge Charger 318 was first registered in 1972, it’s got a UK V5C and will be MoT’d until July 2015.

Stude Pres 1962

If you’re after a project, then the two Studebakers will tempt you. The 1958 Hawk is UK registered and running and carries an estimate of £3500 to £4500.

While the 1962 Studebaker President is a non-runner but is UK registered. It is estimated to fetch between £2500 and £3500. 

Our favourite, though, is the Ford Econoline van, which has seen service at the Goodwood Revival as part of the Goodwood Revival Transport Corps.

It’s been professionally signwritten with ‘Dan Gurney for President’, and features a six-cylinder engine and column change manual gearbox. With an MoT until April 2016, it carries an estimate of £7000 to £9000.

Ford Econoline Goodwood #2

Sure to be a talking point is a Ford Tudor Sportsman racer. Restored at a cost of more than $30,000 (about £19,000), it was prepared for racing driver Neil ‘Soapy’ Castles to demonstrate at NASCAR events.

It has Edelbrock race heads fuelled by Stromberg carbs. There’s a roll cage and safety hubs, and it’s been converted to hydraulic brakes.

Eligible for both Spedeworth's THORA vintage stock car series and BRISCA's Heritage series, the estimate for this classic competition car is £8000 to £12,000.

The full catalogue can be viewed at the Anglia Car Auctions website.
