Beaulieu International Autojumble 2017

Took a trip down to Beaulieu for the 2017 International Autojumble which was as always well attended with plenty of visitors from outside these shores displaying their wares.

Didn’t get what I really wanted, but I did pick up a few tools and perused the Car Corral and the parking are for the onsite Bonham’s auction which you can see in the gallery.

It appears these type of events are what is keeping Beaulieu going as the museum is falling behind the likes of the Haynes and  the British Motor Museum, (Gaydon), offerings, which is a real shame.

Beaulieu Autojumble September 5th 2015

Took a trip to the International Autojumble at Beaulieu National Motor Museum. A poignant day as Lord Montagu the person mainly responsible for Beaulieu as is now sadly died earlier this week.

The autojumble was full of the usual weird and wonderful stuff. Not a massive showing on the Yank front, but what was there was good. I especially liked Brian Bignell’s 1929 Model A Speedster, which as you can see was built to a really nice quality

West Wycombe Vintage Car Show

Took about an hours trip to the West Wycombe Summer Fayre and Vintage Car Show.

A nice selection of cars in a lovely lawn setting and a beautiful day into the bargain.

As last week not too many American cars, but those that were there were pretty cool.

Highlights for me were a nice blue RHD Chevy convertible, and a gold T-Bird.

I’ve used a bit of licence on this post, Jensen Interceptors have a Chrysler V8 and the Sunbeam Tiger has a Ford 289.

 

Lovely day all round!

Chrysler New Yorker

Ford Ranchero

Model A Coupe & Roadster

Mustangs

Plus a really cool Mercedes Hot Rod, not my normal thing, but very nice..

Rally Pony: 1964.5 Mustang Convertible

The seller of this 1964.5 Ford Mustang Convertible claims it is a “D” code car that was optioned with the Rally Pack. While they have the Rally Pack parts, they currently aren’t on the car. It was recently pulled from 30 years of barn storage and needs a complete restoration. If you interested in taking this project on, find it here on eBay.
