Bonhams at Beaulieu Autojumble 13th Sept 2003 - Preview

An ‘eclectic mixture’ is an apposite way to describe Bonhams’ Beaulieu Autojumble sales. Like the main event itself, mixed up amongst the humbler items there are the odd gems including a 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 MkII Saloon in need of a little TLC and an 1896 Whitney Two-cylinder Steam Roundabout – very Brighton Run, it’s already completed eight successfully.

The Aston is in very ‘original’ condition but is said to run well, with just 33,178 miles on the odometer, having been in one family ownership since 1961. The estimate is £10 – 12,000. The Steam car is one of the more expensive lots in the sale at £40 – 50,000 but as we know too well these Brighton-eligible cars are a law unto themselves pricewise and can go for a lot of money.

Over fifty cars and motorcycles are included in the sale which starts at 12 noon for the Automobilia and 3.30pm for the Cars and Motorcycles.
