Auction Prices Still Edging Up

Tue, 11 Dec 2007
In defiance of economic indicators, auction prices continued to edge up today in anticipation of the busy January we have seen for the past 15-years whatever the doom and gloom merchants laid on us.

And, interestingly, the Rover 75 V6 limo and Rover 75 V8 that have been standing outside BCA’s front doors have now been plated up with 57 registrations.

Unused car, anyone? Unused for at least two and a half years, that is. Be interesting to see what they make. Just don’t let anyone try to persuade you they are new.

Today’s seriously cheap cars were a pair of 2005/55 reg Chevrolet Tacumas, each with 16k miles. Glass’s predictively booked them at £4,250 apiece with 21k miles and they sold for £3,750 and £3,800.

An 06 Fiesta Style Climate was cheap at £4,700. A 2004/54 Mazda 3 2.0i Sport was very cheap at £3,150. A one owner (guess who) white 05 reg LandRover Discovery III with 227k miles made quite a strong £10,700. While a white 194k mile 2005/55 Shogun 3.2 D-ID from the same ownership made £7,450.

But closest to a bargain 4x4 was a 6k mile 06 new model Vitara 2.0 LWB auto, gone for £8,600

Here’s the list. As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage. ‘dmg’ means damaged. ‘fl’ means facelift.
