Strong Money Again at Auction Today

Fri, 02 Feb 2007
At least private vendors are getting good money for their cars in the Sure Sell Section. I missed most of it, but £3,250 for a 48k mile Y reg Fiesta 1.6 Zetec S and £4,550 for a 27k mile 2001/51 Golf 1.6S looked pretty good to me. If you want to try it, link to www.sure-sell.info

Watching the part-exchanges it soon became apparent that the most expensive cars were at the cheap end. £2,025 for a 62k mile 2000W Fiesta 1.2 Zetec reserved at £1,600, £1,350 for a 44k mile not warranted 1999V Ford Ka with rust in the rear three quarters; £1,625 for a badly scratched 53k mile 1998R Corolla 1.3 3-dr.

Here’s the list. All Inchcape part-exchanges. As usual, ‘s’ means ‘sold’, ‘p’ means ‘provisional’, ‘n/w’ means miles not warranted.
