£825 Focus at Auction Today

Fri, 03 Aug 2007
An 02 facelift model as well. And a 90PS diesel on top of that. But a small matter of 239,000 miles under its wheels. Bidding started at £200. The car was reserved at £700. But a couple fought on and it eventually sold for £825. The ‘Jarvis’ livery paint was so flat and faded it might well wipe off to reveal immaculate white original coachwork underneath. So beware cars of changing colours.

A Jeep was also extremely cheap because this was a 28k mile 06 reg Grand Cherokee Limited with satnav and leather, list price new £30,575, sold today for £17,600.

There were plenty of other minimum money cars today. Three 2005/55 Mitsubishi Colt Blacks with 12k – 15k miles went for £3,750 to £3,950. A 79k mile 04 TDCI 115 Mondeo LX went for the same £3,650 as a 30k mile 04 2.0i petrol LX. An 81k mile 05 Volvo V50 2.0d S sold for £8,000 against £14,250 paid for a 22k mile 2.0d SE.

£7k wasn't much for an 04 MX5, even though it was the poverty spec 1.6.

And word must have got out that the red 95k mile 05 SEAT Cupra TDI 150 had the gold in the boot, because it sold for £7,300 against £5,700 that secured the blue 92k mile 05 Cupra TDI 150.

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means provisional bid. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘dmg’ means damaged. ‘d/r’ means damaged/repaired.
