BEAULIEU will start up the National Motor Museum’s legendary Lotus 49 at the International Autojumble this weekend to mark 50 years of the popular event, which began life in the same year that the car was built.
The F1 car will roar into life on Sunday at 3pm in front of the museum as part of the weekend event.
The legendary racing car, which was built in 1967 with chassis number 3, was famously campaigned by Graham Hill and is one of the most iconic racers of its generation. The roar of its 2993cc V8 engine is sure to impress show-goers.
The International Autojumble celebrated its 50th event in 2016. From humble beginnings, the show has grown to become an unmissable date on classic car enthusiasts’ calendars with more than 2,000 stands offering motoring spares, accessories and automobilia.
A Bonhams sale of collectors’ cars and automobilia also takes place on Saturday.
Automart is sure to have enthusiasts reaching for their wallets, with up to 200 classic cars for sale at the events arena, while the automotive temptations continue in Dealermart with a range of first-class classics for sale by dealers.
Sunday will welcome Trunk Traders to the event fields, as jumblers sell off their unwanted motoring items from the boots of their cars. There are sure to be plenty of bargains laid across the traders’ trestle tables.
