Plenty to see at the Beaulieu Aujojumble and Automart today. Here's a selection, including some of the more interesting cars that I spotted in the car park...

Volvo 66:
Image
^ The smallest car ever to wear the Volvo badge - it's effectively a re-badged Dutch-built Daf 66. Volvo took over Daf in 1976.

Volkswagen Scirocco Mk1:
Image

Rover P6 3500:
Image

Standard Vanguard Ute:
Image

Sunbeam Alpine:
Image

1959 Triumph Herald Coupe:
Image

Riley 1.5:
Image

1989 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350:
Image

There was a great display of Morrises, including this Morris Minor police panda car:
Image

Morris Minor Van:
Image

Morris Marina Coupe:
Image

Morris Isis Traveller:
Image

1931 Morris Major:
Image

Morris 1800:
Image

Morris Cowley:
Image

Morris 8 Series E:
Image

Car of the show for me was this ultra-rare Lancia Beta Coupe Hi-Fi - one of only two known survivors:
Image
Image

Lotus Esprit:
Image

1972 Mercury Cougar:
Image

1949 MG YT:
Image

1950 Lagonda 2.6-Litre:
Image

...and another, in not such good condition:
Image

German-plated Jaguar 420G:
Image

Jaguar XKR-S:
Image

Humber Hawk:
Image

There was a good display of Hillman Imps too, including these two:
Image
Image

Honda CRX:
Image

Hillman Avenger Estate:
Image

1963 Ford Galaxie:
Image

Citroen CX Estate:
Image

1948 Chrysler New Yorker:
Image

Ferrari Mondial:
Image

Chevrolet Traverse:
Image

1959 Cadillac Coupe De Ville:
Image

Chevrolet Apache:
Image

1965 Chevrolet Corvette:
Image

BMW 1602:
Image

1994 BMW 840Ci:
Image

Austin A55 Cambridge:
Image

Armstrong-Siddeley Standard 17, I think:
Image

Aston Martin Rapide:
Image

Alfa Romeo 6C-1750 Turismo:
Image

I only made one purchase in the Autojumble, which was this '70s/'80s Soviet-made model of a RAF van (RAF as in the Latvian van maker, not the Royal Air Force):
Image
^ It was a snip at just £2. It cost me less than my coffee! Not something you see every day, and couldn't resist it at that price. Appalling build quality though - the doors don't line up properly and drop a little when you open them - probably just like the real thing!

Great pics!!

I don't know a whole lot about European vehicles, but when I see those classic American cars, I start drooling. That New Yorker is a real beauty!

I did chuckle a bit when I saw the Traverse.

I never thought I'd see a Morris Isis traveller again, I think they only made 1000 or so including series 1 and 2. Thanks for the pics!.

My father owned a series one saloon in the early '60s, he always had fond memories of it. Mind you petrol was 5 shillings per gallon at the time.

Roger.

Beautiful cars! Thanks for posting.

That Rapide looks so good. And that MKI Scirocco.

It must be a real joy to pilot that yellow vette in Europe...I can just imagine how it must rattle and shake the mirrors off those little cars at the traffic lights with those side cannons...

Thanks for the great pics... ;)
