First September Trade-ins at Auction Today

There’s nearly always a surprise in a part exchange auction, and today’s blast from the past was this 69,000 mile 1966D Triumph Herald 12/50. (That’s the one with a sunroof.)

It looked well worn for its 44 years, but well kept and original and attracted some strong bids, eventually selling for £1,800, something like four times its original list price.

Though logistics mean that 60 reg part-exchanges aren’t coming through in any quantity yet, the cars looked cheap to me.

98R SAAB 900i convertible £600, Y reg Subaru Impreza Sport SW £500, 02 SEAT Leon 20VT Sport £1,025, 99T BMW Z3 1.9 roadster £2,250.

There were some reasonable buys in the fleet section too. An 07 Alfa GT 2.0JTS Turismo for £5,000, a 52k mile 07 Avensis T180 for £6,000, a 33k miles 2008/58 Audi A4 1.8TFSI 160 SE for £12,500, a 24k mile 09 Audi Q7 3.0TDI S-line for £33,400, a 22k mile 2007/57 Range Rover Sport 2.7TDV6 HSE for £27,400s.

And a 57k mile 06 Renault Megane 1.5DCI 106 Dynamique estate was cheap as chips at £3,000s.

Though a relatively rare 38k mile 08 Mondeo 2.0TDCI 130 Zetec automatic stood its ground well to sell for £9,600s

(As usual, ‘s’ means sold. ‘p’ means top provisional bid, ‘pc’ means provisional, but close. ‘n/s’ means not sold. ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted. ‘MNW’ means unknown mileage. ‘dmg’ means damaged. D/R means damaged and repaired. ‘fl’ means facelift. ‘H/T’ means hardtop. Extras like ‘lthr’ and ‘sat’ are specified when they are not standard.)
