Mondeo II For £1,600 at Auction Today

Fri, 13 Apr 2007
But first a word about parking at BCA Blackbushe. The normal car parks have been taken over as stocking yards, and you now have to park some distance from the auction centre on the site of the Sunday market. So allow for some extra time when you set off.

The Mondeo in the photo was a reasonable condition, standard Y reg 150k mile 1.8 Zetec. Cheap, but whether it was value or not would depend on how much needed spending. An 85k mile 04 reg Proton Impian 1.6X with leather looked a better buy to me at £2,550. While top bid for a congestion charge beating 80k mile 03 reg Astra 1.6LS bi-fuel estate was a mere £2,400.

I sent a punter along to this particular sale for an 04 reg ex Motability Focus 1.6 automatic, and he had a choice of three, all Zetec 5-doors, all minus Climate Pack and with 14k to 17k miles. They sold for between £4,700 and £4,950. In the same section a 32k mile 04 Jazz 1.4SE CVT-7 only bid to a provisional £5,800, while a 42k mile 04 reg Picasso 2.0SX auto sold for £4,800. So once again, plenty of sensibly priced 3 year old automatics in the Motability section.

Even better value, maybe, was a 26k mile semi-automatic 2005/54 reg Smart Forfour 1.5CDI Passion, sold for £5,800.

But it’s questionable why Citroen saw fit to reserve three year-old 06 reg C1 Rhythm 5-drs with 6k to 10k miles at something like £5,400 when anyone can have a new Vibe 3-dr for £5,450.

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. ‘dmg’ means damaged.
