Beaulieu’s Spring Autojumble to Celebrate 21st Birthday

Beaulieu’s popular Spring AutojumbleBack for its 21st year, Beaulieu’s popular Spring Autojumble will be taking place on the 17th and 18th May in the grounds of the world-famous National Motor Museum.

The 1,000 Autojumble spaces will be selling everything classic motor-related, including parts, automobilia, literature and accessories, while the Motormart on the Beaulieu Arena will have up to 200 vehicles for sale, ranging from concours classics to restorable relics. In the Dealermart there will be a selection of quality classic cars for sale.

Beaulieu’s popular Spring Autojumble2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the prestigious European Car of the Year title, and in celebration of this, Beaulieu is hoping to display an example of each of the 50 winning vehicles. The unique line-up will tell the story of the competition, from its first winner in 1964 (the Rover 2000) to the 2013 victor (the Golf MKVI). Owners of vehicles which have won this award can join the display – to see if your vehicle is eligible, view the full list of winners at

Show sponsors, Practical Classics, will be present at the event with a one-off practical demonstration - the restoration in one weekend of the world’s first production Hillman Imp – along with a collection of magazine cars and previous restorations, including Lord Montagu’s MGB GT, which was restored to working order during last year’s Spring and International Autojumbles.

Beaulieu’s popular Spring AutojumbleSunday highlights include Old Sodbury’s Land Rover Sortout, selling Land Rover and 4x4 parts and accessories, and Trunk Traders, with amateur autojumblers selling their surplus car bits from the back of their vehicles.

Introduced in 2012, the popular Walkabout Auction will again be taking place on the Sunday afternoon, with Practical Classics Editor, Danny Hopkins, as guest auctioneer. It offers an ‘end of show’ chance to buy and sell, giving exhibitors an opportunity to sell off surplus items of stock they don’t want to take home with them.

For just £1, exhibitors can buy a box to fill with bits (larger items can go alongside), to be auctioned at the end of the afternoon. It’s a simple and easy way of buying or selling those last bits from the show and there are no auction fees to pay.

Visitors to the event can enjoy all the Beaulieu attractions, including the National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear, Palace House and Beaulieu Abbey.
