Alfa to Zundapp at ACA Classic Car Auction

1979 Alfa Romeo Alfasud 1.3 Super

Anglia Car Auction’s third sale of the year, on Saturday 13th June, has seen the Kings Lynn auctioneer bringing in 260 classic cars covering marques from A to Z.

The choice ranges from a 1979 Alfa Romeo Alfasud 1.3 Super (top), with an estimate of £5,500 to £7,500, to a rare 1958 Zundapp Janus 250 (below), a micro-car with huge aspirations as the estimate is £32,000 to £36,000.

Also included is the last Ford Capri built, through to a low-mileage 1972 Land Rover Safari. There’s a barn-find, 59,000 genuine miles 1987 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth and even a recently exhumed Maserati 3500GT project.

ACA’s run of ‘Pagoda’ roof Mercedes-Benz SLs continues with a two-owner 1967 250 that has covered 40,200 miles from new.

There’s a definite performance edge to this sale courtesy of two BMW E30 M3 models, one of which is a Europameister limited edition. There’s a choice of 1980s Afa Romeo GTVs, including a three-owner 2000. Lancias aren’t left out, with a 1988 Integrale 8V lining up alongside a 1967 Flavia convertible project.

This sale sees ACA’s biggest-ever Capri offering, which includes the last-built limited edition Cabaret (above) and Laser models as well as a 1980 1600S that has never been welded.

There are plenty of more unusual French offerings, which include a Renault Vel Satis and 1960 Simca Aronde. Lovers of rarer Americana aren’t missing out either, courtesy of two Studebaker projects – a 1958 Hawk and a 1962 President (below).

The 1958 Zundapp Janus 250 may be the sale’s most unusual car, but for those who like their comfort, ACA has a 1994 Bentley Brooklands and a 1947 MkVI, along with a 1973 Daimler Sovereign 2.8.
