Bergerac's car up for sale
1949 Triumph from the Bergerac TV series is to be offered for sale at auction
October 31, 2013
One of the most familiar cars from a TV series - the Triumph Roadster 2000 driven by Jim Bergerac - will be offered for sale at auction next month.
The 1949 example is expected to sell for £25,000-£30,000 in the Bonhams Harrogate sale on November 13. It was used by the BBC between 1985 and 1991 for the filming of the Bergerac TV series and had its registration number changed to reflect the programme's Jersey setting. After the series ended the car was sold for £37,000 at auction to raise money for the Children in Need charity. In total, the car has had five registered owners, including the current vendor.
