The sale in the main Hall 1 of Blackbushe saw a throng of dealers battle it out for our cars.
The only car that didn’t sell was Carlyle Finance’s Audi TT – it was bid up to £3,950, but the reserve was £4,000.
BCA is currently liaising with the vendors and buyer to see if a deal can be struck for BEN.
So how about the other cars? Well, Project Stealth – bought by us from Auction4Cars.com for £250 – sold for £375.
Other highlights included Nissan’s Rabbit – amazingly it was snapped up for £750 – and the Kia Zebra, despite having stripes and being left hand drive, made £1,250!
The others made:
Toyota Corolla – sold for £550
Saab Delorean – sold for £200
North Oxford Garage’s BMW 730i – £275
Nissan Almera – sold for £900
HPI’s BMW 520 – sold for £250
WinWin World’s Volvo V70 – sold for £600
Three cars from the event didn’t make it to BCA. Bayliss’ Astra was going to cost £150 to transport to BCA and only booked at £120 – so the team donated £200 and scrapped it.
And two of the Marshall teams couldn’t get their cars to the auction in time – the Lexus and Volvo. These we hope to sell at a separate BCA auction soon.
Add the sale total to the amount raised via sponsorship and so far Bangers4BEN 3 has raised £7,200 for the charity – and that’s before we take into account the money for the TT.
