    • ModelNH Red Hunter 350cc
    • FE Cat descVal Page's arrival at Ariel in 1925 as Chief Designer would trigger an upturn in the Selly Oak firm's fortunes. Page designed new models to replace the existing range, the first of which - a pair of singles displacing 600cc (side-valve) and 500cc (overhead-valve) - debuted later that year. By 1930, the Ariel single had gained a rear-mounted magneto and its distinctive timing cover and the engine's basic design - though frequently revised - would stand the company in good stead well into the post-war era. In 1932, the sports versions were christened 'Red Hunter' and, under Page's successor Edward Turner, developed into fast and stylish machines. In mid-1946 the Hunters became the first models to feature Ariel's new telescopic front fork and the following year could be ordered with the optional Anstey Link plunger rear suspension. This lovely example of this classic British motorcycle is presented in maroon with a beige seat and has been in the ownership of the seller’s late father for the last 40 years, during which time it has been well looked after. A nice example which would be fun to ride to classic bike rallies and to take to the Goodwood Revival and feel a part of the action.

    • ModelR69S S
    • FE Cat descQuite simply, BMW approach their motorcycles with the same serious attitude as they do their motorcars. The engineering is sound, the quality of manufacture very good and they have undergone exhaustive testing to ensure an excellent ride. These shaft driven, twin-engined motorcycles carried 594cc engines and were designed to be relatively high powered, high compression sport bikes capable of carrying a sidecar. Even the conservative paint finish was excellent and reflected the prestige end of the touring range available. This near perfect example has been imported from South Africa where it underwent a complete restoration including a full engine rebuild, bare metal respray and all electrics and brakes restored back in the early 2000s. Whilst over there, as testament to the quality of the collection owned by the vendor, it won a specialist BMW Concours competition. Imagine how fastidious that was! With just 1,000 covered since its restoration and 17,700 covered overall, this meticulously prepared example probably represents one of the finest examples available today.

    • ModelT20 Tiger Cub
    • FE Cat descIntroduced in March 1954, the Triumph T20 Tiger Cub was a snip at £127, a little over half the price of its big brother, the 650cc Triumph 6T Thunderbird. This attractive four stroke 199cc bike, with its instantly recognisable exhaust note, was Triumph’s answer to the popular but smokey, two stroke BSA Bantam. Built at Triumph’s factory at Meriden and with a top speed approaching 70mph, the Cub won many admirers selling over 110,000 units in the 15 years of its production. You will have to travel far and wide to find a better example of this popular model. This great-looking blue and orange example has been fully restored to near concours condition and comes with invoices totalling over £6,250. Supplied with the original registration document, this pristine example is not only tax and MoT test certificate exempt but is has been recognised by the Tiger Cub Owners Club with its provenance logged in their archive.

    • ModelR60
    • FE Cat descThe Berlin-built R60 was in production from 1956 right up to 1969 with a hefty 600cc motor pushing pistons in a four stroke, boxer-style formation. This, interestingly, mirrored the German motorcar industry at the time. The rugged tubular steel frame made this classic design a real all-rounder and, as a result, has generated a keen following world-wide. During these production dates, no other models were produced indicating that the R60 and R69 were entirely sufficient for all tastes. Additionally, they also benefitted from telescopic front forks, 12-volt alternator, electrics, standard tachometer and turn signals. This very low mileage example undertook a complete nut and bolt restoration back in the early 2000’s and since then, has won a number of concourse events. Following the overhaul, we are informed that that it has completed fewer than 1,000 miles although the speedometer apparently requires repair. The condition is superb and the extremely well presented motorcycle fires up with little effort on the kickstart.

    • ModelFS1-E
    • FE Cat descA number of machines can claim to have become cultural icons but to be known globally by its nickname is hard to top. The Yamaha FS1-E or ‘Fizzy’ holds such a crown. The sight and sound of these two strokes will instantly conjure long forgotten memories for riders of a certain generation that took their first steps on a motorcycle unaware of the thrills that lay in store. This ‘Sixteener Special’, an early ’73 model and finished in the yellow ‘Kenny Roberts’ livery, has been extensively restored to near concours condition. In addition, recent bills include a new clutch and battery. Running very well, this period classic is offered without reserve.

    • ModelSquare Four
    • FE Cat descDuring its 68 years of production, beginning in 1902, Ariel was one of the leading innovators in British motorcycling. One of their milestone bikes was the Ariel Square Four, designed in 1928 by Edward Turner. Turner, at this time was looking for work and showed drawings of his engine design to various motorcycle manufacturers. The engine was essentially a pair of 'across frame' OHC parallel twins joined by their geared central flywheels with one four cylinder monobloc and one cylinder head. The idea was rejected by BSA, who later purchased Ariel in 1944, but was adopted by Ariel and the model became the Ariel Square Four. Turner's innovative four-cylinder engine continued in various updated versions until 1959, when the production of all Ariel four-stroke models ceased. In 1949 the Ariel Square Four Mk. I saw the cast iron cylinder head and barrel replaced by alloy head and barrel. This saved about 13.5kg in weight. The 1949 machine weighed around 197kg dry, produced 26kW at 5500rpm and was capable of 145km/h-plus. This lovely and extremely rare motorcycle, which has been in the ownership of the seller’s late father for the last 40 years is presented in maroon with a black seat and white piping. Presented in nice condition, this certainly is a highly sought after model and would grace any private collection or indeed a museum, such is the quality and rarity.

    • ModelSilver Bullet (350cc)
    • FE Cat descRoyal Enfield was the brand name under which The Enfield Cycle Company Limited of Redditch, Worcestershire, sold motorcycles, bicycles, lawnmowers and stationary engines. Enfield Cycle Company also used the brand name Enfield without Royal with the first Royal Enfield motorcycle built in 1901. They are responsible for the design and original production of the Royal Enfield Bullet, the longest living motorcycle design in history. This Silver Bullet has had a nut and bolt restoration and presents in stunning condition. Mechanically we are advised this motorcycle is faultless. This single seater 350cc Royal Enfield is a very handsome machine with ample chromework to keep clean! Supplied with a V5C registration document, the vendor has not used the motorcycle since the rebuild, hence the 38 miles odometer reading.

    • ModelC15 SS80
    • FE Cat descThe BSA C15 was BSA’s first four-stroke unitary construction bike. Beloved of a generation of new riders, this 250cc bike was the maximum size that a learner could ride unaccompanied in the UK. The 1959 C15 Star was the first model in the range and in 1961, the 'Super Sports' model (SS80) joined the range with a tuned engine, roller big-end bearings and lower handlebars. This beautiful, low mileage example has benefitted from a ‘no-expense spared’ restoration at a cost of more than £9,000 since 2014. In classic period red and black, this has been lovingly stored and has travelled zero miles since it sailed through the last MoT test with no advisories in April, 2018. It comes with a comprehensive history including the original log book and many supporting invoices. Offered without reserve, this unique example represents amazing value to the discerning collector and enthusiast alike.

    • ModelCamper Express 1000 P
    • FE Cat descThe Talbot Express was the last vehicle produced by the conglomerate. The result of a joint venture between Peugeot, Citroën and Fiat, the Talbot Express was built in Italy alongside the Ducato. The engine is transversely mounted petrol unit from a Peugeot 504 whilst the diesel unit is from a Citroën CX, both varieties utilise the Citroën gearbox. In 1991, the Talbot Express Series II was launched although Peugeot finally discontinued the Talbot name in 1992. The Express was a popular vehicle to be used for campervan conversions. Originally supplied by Roe Moor Garages in Eccleston, Lancashire, this Talbot Express campervan has only covered 48,356 miles from new and is a very well appointed example. The white coachwork is in good order and shows no sign of corrosion and the grey interior is commensurate with such a low mileage example, the front seats are reversible ‘captain’ style. This fixed-roof, four berth campervan is fitted with double glazing and blinds. There is a wc and shower as well as heating with amenities including a cooker, sink, three-way fridge and a wardrobe. We are advised this Talbot drives well with no known faults; the gearbox and alternator have recently been replaced. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a history folder and a current MoT test certificate; with summer just around the corner this is an ideal vehicle for a trip to the coast or the myriad of festivals now available.

    • Model190E 2.3 16v Cosworth
    • FE Cat descThis high-performance model was known as the 190E 2.3-16 and debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September 1983, after its reputation had already been established. Three cars, only slightly cosmetically altered, had set three world records in August at the Nardo testing facility in Italy, recording a combined average speed of 154.06 mph over the 50,000km endurance test and establishing 12 international endurance records. This was later updated to the 190E 2.5 16v in 1988. Apart from the performance increase over the standard 190E, there were other notable changes. The body-kit on the 2.3-16 reduced the drag coefficient to 0.32, one of the lowest CD values on a four-door saloon at the time, whilst also reducing lift at speed. The steering ratio was quicker and the steering wheel smaller than that on other 190s, whilst the fuel tank was enlarged from 55 to 70 litres. An oil cooler was also fitted to ensure sufficient oil cooling for the inevitable track use for which many of these cars were destined. The strictly four-seater interior had Recaro sports seats with strong side bolsters for front and rear passengers. Three extra dials, an oil temperature gauge, stopwatch and voltmeter were included in the centre console. The 190E 2.3-16 was only available in two colours, Blue-Black metallic or Smoke Silver. The suspension on 16-valve models is very different from the standard 190, as well as being lower and stiffer - it has quicker dampers, larger anti-roll bars, harder bushes, a limited slip differential and hydraulic self-levelling suspension (SLS) on the rear. This allows the rear ride height to remain constant even when the car is fully loaded. This fantastic, rare and desirable righthand drive Mercedes-Benz 2.3 16V Cosworth is presented in Smoke Silver with black leather interior. With only four previous owners, the first being His Majesty King Hussein of Jordan, this well cared for example shows an impressive 15 stamps in the service book and has been garaged for most of its life. Unusually highly specified from new, this car benefits from key options including electric driver and passenger seats , outside temperature display, Becker Mexico radio, electric sunroof , automatic transmission , driver airbag , illuminated vanity mirrors , and air conditioning. It is offered to auction with a valid MoT test certificate and V5C registration document. Good examples of this model are a firm favourite with both collectors and investors alike.

    • ModelE46 330Ci SE
    • FE Cat descThe BMW E46 was the fourth generation of the BMW 3 Series, the focus for the new incoming model design was an emphasis on improving aerodynamics and increasing the car's aggressive stance. The engine ranged from the mundane 316 to the fabulous M3 straight six and the 330 engine sat nicely at the upper tier of the range, producing 228bhp coupled to a chassis which BMW claimed to be 70% more rigid than its E36 predecessor. This is a very rare and desirable manual 330Ci with very low mileage, impeccable service history and presented in a beautiful colour combination of Topaz Blue metallic paint with Sand Beige bubble/Nappa leather. This particular example is a three owner car, the original owner, who ordered the car, sold it to his neighbour before it was sold to the current registered keeper. The car was serviced exclusively by BMW in its early life and has been serviced by independents in the second and third owner’s custodianship. It is clear by the service history and the condition of the car that this vehicle has wanted for nothing and is a credit to its owners. Back in 2001, it was quite common for UK owners to order their cars through a German dealership due to the strength of the pound, this is one such car. The car was registered on 12th April 2001, it was ordered through B&K BMW in Hamburg and had a pre-delivery inspection with them on 5th April 2001. The low mileage of 37,497 is backed up by the fully stamped service book and MoT test certificate records, the most recent service in August of 2018. It is presented with its original book packs, folder and accompanying receipts, service book and both keys plus the plastic service key and original sales brochure. This car was specified from new with climate control, electric sunroof, sports seats, park distance control, rain sensors and Xenon lights. With an MoT test certificate valid until April 2020, this car is an absolute gem and is a sure fire modern classic. Original and un-molested examples of these cars are becoming sought after and are commanding high prices in the current marketplace.

    • Model4CV ‘Bouton d’Or’
    • FE Cat descIn the late 1930’s, Renault felt the need to create a small, inexpensive family car and so, amazingly during the Nazi occupation in 1941, it was built. Testing continued in secret until the armistice whereupon a production line was started. It was a hit with queues sometimes stretching to two years. The 760cc engine was common until 1950 when 750cc units were substituted to avoid being outclassed in motor sport. Over one million examples were built when production finished in 1961, not a bad gamble by Louis Renault back in 1938. This charming example was owned and used by a local chauffeur during its early life before importation to the UK from Argent-sur-Sauldre in central France in 1996. Indeed, its arrival in the UK was part of a Renault UK charity appeal in 2012 when five centres were challenged to buy a 4CV for less than £3,000, spend no more than £2,000 on it and then judged on the results. Public generosity prospered and many companies and staff gave of their time and parts to make this the best it could be. It was completely dismantled to bare metal and rebuilt from top to bottom with the results photographically documented within the history file. The vendor acquired ‘Buttercup’ after the competition ended and has enjoyed her ever since. Bonne journée!

    • ModelT2 Saloon
    • FE Cat descThe T-Series was the Bentley badged version of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, available as a four or two door saloon. The Bentley differed from its Rolls-Royce equivalent by its more rounded front grille, the badging on the wheel covers and boot lid and gauges naturally featured Bentley motifs. In October 1966, the ‘T’ saloon's pre-tax 'list price' of £5,375 undercut the Rolls-Royce by £50! The Bentley was technically an identical twin of the Rolls-Royce and seemed to have been purchased mostly by owners wishing for a more understated sporting saloon. The present owner’s father purchased this lovely example in Moreland Green in 1985, when it was merely eight years old. He owned the car until his death in 2003 when his widow took over its ownership although she never actually drove it. The present owner bought the car from the estate in 2005 however, due to his father's ill health, he only undertook regular short drives when visiting his sick father in hospital to keep it in good running order. In the last seven years, it has done fewer than 3,000 miles. It has always been serviced when the MoT test was carried out and, as far as the owner is aware, this wonderful car was kept garaged from 1985 to the present day. About five years ago, the brake hoses and rear calipers were replaced which is a common requirement for Rolls-Royce derivatives of this age. The interior carpets are original and in excellent condition due to sheepskin over rugs and about six years ago, the owner stripped and re-lacquered the door and window cappings. The ivory leather seats and door linings are original and in good condition for their age. The air conditioning has been periodically re-gassed and is currently in full working order. The car comes with a current MoT test certificate expiring in February 2020 and a V5C registration document. An elegant classic and a true example of British manufacturing at its best.

    • ModelTR6
    • FE Cat descThe Triumph TR6 was manufactured for seven years from 1969 and by the time production came to an end in July 1976, it was the best-seller of the TR range. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5, but the front and rear were squared off and all TR6s featured inline six-cylinder engines. For the US market, the engine was fitted with carburettors whilst, for other world markets including the UK, the TR6 was fitted with fuel-injection. It featured a four-speed manual gearbox, independent rear suspension, rack and pinion steering, 15" wheels and tyres, pile carpet on the floors and boot, bucket seats and a full complement of instruments. In total 94,619 TR6s were built of which 86,249 were sold overseas and only 8,370 were sold in the UK. This TR6 was repatriated to the UK in March 2018 and has undergone extensive restoration work. At the time of writing, the restoration is close to completion and includes a conversion to righthand drive. We are informed by the vendor this Triumph starts and runs well. The maroon coachwork is complemented by cream interior and to be expected, she is fitted with carburettors. This matching numbers TR6 is supplied with a V5C registration document and a Heritage Certificate.

    • ModelTurbo R
    • FE Cat descThe Bentley Turbo R initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo and also sported a retuned suspension and wider tyres on alloy wheels, quite a departure for a Bentley. From the 1987 model year, however, the Turbo R's V8 engine was re-tuned with new Bosch MK-Motronic fuel injection for added torque. Other modifications carried out at the same time included new sports seats and a higher rear axle ratio. Motor Trend called the Turbo R “the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name” in their review of the car on its introduction to the United States in 1989. The suspension changes, though seemingly subtle, transformed the heavy car into a real performer and slotted above the Bentley Mulsanne S and Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit and it carved a well deserved niche in the world of performance saloons. This desirable floor gear change example presents extremely well in metallic Royal Ebony with the classic combination of Parchment leather interior and black piping. Contained within the history file of this well looked-after Bentley is a number of invoices and stamps in the service book, this includes invoices totalling nearly £17,000 spent during the current owners three year tenure. The interior of a Bentley is renowned for its space, leather and walnut trim, this Crewe beauty is no exception and even benefits from the option of black carpets and rear picnic tables. This Bentley is offered with a V5C registration document, a valid MoT test certificate and the cherished number plate.

    • ModelK-Type Truck (30 cwt)
    • FE Cat descBedford was a subsidiary company of Vauxhall Motors and the provider of commercial vehicles for the UK and export markets. The origins of Vauxhall Motors can be traced to 1857 when Alexander Wilson founded the Vauxhall Iron Works in Wandsworth Road, Vauxhall, London. Vauxhall Motors moved to Luton in 1905 and in November 1925, Vauxhall was acquired by General Motors. During World War II, production of civilian vehicles was suspended and Vauxhall was given the task of building the Churchill tanks. Production resumed after the war using the tried and trusted K, M and O-Types introduced in 1939. This splendid Bedford 30 cwt K-Type is presented in fantastic condition having been the subject of a full cab and body off, nut and bolt restoration in 2016. This iconic vehicle, until two years ago, had not been out of Cornwall and remained in the locality for most of its lifetime. It started out hauling fish from Newlyn Harbour to market and has spent the last 36 years as a promotional and show vehicle for Abrahams Coal Merchants, Redruth. It is presented in its original livery with green and black wings. Whilst not concourse, it is probably one of the finest examples available of the Bedford K-Type.

    • ModelBoxster
    • FE Cat descThe first-generation Boxster (the 986) was introduced in late 1996 and was powered by a 2.5 litre flat, six-cylinder engine. Harm Lagaay's design, inspired by the 356 Speedster and 550 Spyder, stimulated a commercial turnaround for Porsche. Many believe the introduction of the Boxster helped save Porsche from acquisition. It was Porsche's first water-cooled, non-front engine sports car as the Boxster is mid-engine, while in the 911, rear-engine. This layout provided a low centre of gravity, near-perfect weight distribution and good handling. In 2000, the new Boxster S variant was introduced with a larger 3.2 litre engine and the base model received a more powerful 2.7 litre engine. In 2003, styling and engine output was upgraded on both variants. Production of the 986 began at the former Porsche 928 facility in Stuttgart, Germany in 1996. The Boxster was Porsche's biggest volume seller from its introduction in 1996 until the company introduced the Cayenne sport utility vehicle in 2003. Originally registered on 17th January 2001 this Porsche is finished in blue with a light tan interior. The mileage of 85,000 is correct and supported by a collection of invoices; the original service books are also present. In July 2018 she had new brake rear discs and pads. Road holding is helped by having Pirelli P-Zero tyres and a stainless steel performance exhaust system is fitted. Supplied with a V5 registration document, a full years MoT test certificate and offered for sale without reserve, this Porsche Boxster is a great car for the summer months ahead.

    • ModelXK Portfolio convertible
    • FE Cat descThe XK was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1996 and was last manufactured in July 2014. However, the redesigned XK debuted in 2005 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, styled by Jaguar's chief designer, Ian Callum. Its grille was also inspired from the famous 1961 Jaguar E-Type. Aside from the enhanced performance, Jaguar decided to add more in the way of trim and colour options inside and out for the Portfolio. The subtle changes to the XK's exterior offer little clue as to the car's changed personality. There's no yawning gap between old and new, but this XK offers a sharper, more precise driving experience and one that keen drivers will relish. ​This lovely example, finished in black with ivory leather interior, is the desirable Portfolio model which enjoys all the factory upgrades and cosmetic enhancements which made this so popular when it was first manufactured. It comes with an electric hood in black, full air conditioning, electric heated seats with built in cooling function, CD player, USB connection and satellite navigation to name just a few extras. It is powered by the mighty five litre, V8 engine mated to its smooth automatic gearbox providing more than enough power to propel this luxury sports convertible to speeds far exceeding our UK speed limit!

    • ModelMini 1000
    • FE Cat descThe Mini came about because of a fuel shortage caused by the 1956 Suez Crisis. Petrol was rationed in the UK, sales of large cars slumped and the market for German bubble cars boomed, even in Britain where imported cars were still a rarity at the time. The Fiat 500 was also becoming increasingly popular. Alec Issigonis, who had been working for Alvis, had been recruited back to BMC in 1955 with a brief to design a range of technically advanced family cars in the same innovative spirit as his earlier Morris Minor to complement BMC's existing conventional models. Issigonis had set out design projects for three cars; large and small family cars and a very small economy car. With Lord's task to produce a bubble car competitor, work on the Mini became the priority. This one-owner Mini was purchased from Henlys in Barnes on 3rd October 1979 at a cost of £2,884.60. Having been ‘Ziebarted’ from new, the underside of this car is still like new. The originality of this Mini has to be seen to be fully appreciated, even the quality control stickers are on the inside of the rear brake backplates; these normally come off as soon as the car is used in the rain. The original service books are present together with the original invoice and even the spare keys. This exceedingly low mileage Mini is fitted with an automatic gearbox which, we are advised, operates correctly. Finished in white with brown velour interior, this Mini 1000 is supplied with a V5 registration document together with a full years MoT test certificate.

    • ModelQuattro
    • FE Cat descThe Audi Quattro is arguably the most significant car of the post-war era. The initial plan was to build just 400 for the motorsport industry, but due to strong demand the Quattro went into full production and the first lefthand drive versions were available in the UK in the spring of 1981, but the righthand drive followed in the Autumn of 1982. The first cars are easily identifiable by their twin headlamps, six inch Ronal wheels and black boot spoilers. The engine was a turbo charged version of the fuel injected 2144cc five cylinder engine which originally produced 200bhp and a massive 210lbf of torque. This phenomenal power would take the car to 60mph in 6.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 140mph. The four wheel drive transmission’s ability to provide traction in all conditions meant that the car rewrote the rule book in terms of road holding and acceleration. This stunning Audi Quattro was registered in August 1983. The car presents very well in red with an original patterned velour interior. The vendor is a Rolls-Royce factory trained mechanic and he has maintained this Audi to the very highest standard during his 18 years of ownership. Works have included a full engine rebuild 10,000 miles ago, as well as the fitting of a new turbo and clutch. By way of a tribute to the quality of the work completed, this Quattro was voted into the Goodwood Breakfast Club Dream Grid in 2015. The vendor states that the car runs exceptionally well and that this impressive Audi has been dry stored for the last 18 years. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until August 2019 a spare set of original alloy wheels and lots of receipts for parts. Potential buyers should be aware that in May 1994 this Audi was the subject of an insurance total loss payment. The Vendor believes the car was stolen, vandalised and recovered. This Audi represents a great driving car with good investment potential.

Possibly the most famous of all its incarnations however is the Spider, quite simply one of the sexiest cars ever built. This righthand drive example, the two litre model, has benefitted from continuous attention throughout its current ownership starting with an £8,500 respray in 2010. Regular servicing and MoT tests keep this pretty car running well, so much so, that it has been used regularly and often, including long jaunts across Europe. Presented in sound condition throughout with any corrosion issues attended to, this charming model will certainly turn heads on sale day. Yes please Mrs. Robinson..

    • ModelCrossblade
    • FE Cat descThe Smart Crossblade was originally unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2001 as a concept vehicle, created under the mantra of 'less is more'. Its small size and surprising power output moved it along in traffic, due in part to the fact that the car weighed a mere 1,600 pounds, thus making it rather nippy. Its introduction created such hysteria that Smart built a limited run of 2,000 individually numbered cars. Described as 'an open leisure car uncompromisingly designed for blue skies and high spirit', the concept had no roof, doors, or windshield and it was more like a beach buggy. Driving it is like riding on rollerblades, an experience which lent itself to the name. The clever packaging came from Mercedes-Benz, who designed the car for the Swiss Swatch Company and also supplied the base engines, which have been tweaked by Brabus to produce 70hp. Priced at €21,000, the car sold out quickly after it was introduced in June 2002. ​ This Smart Crossblade, which is identified by its individual production number of 0063, is typically presented in the attractive colour combination of black with a red interior and is in good all round condition. The vendor informs us that this ‘pocket rocket’ never fails to put a smile on his face whenever he drives it. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until April 2020, this fun open-topped car is ready to be enjoyed immediately.

    • Model500 SL Roadster
    • FE Cat descBuilt between 1971 and 1989, the Mercedes-Benz R107 SL is a well and truly established member of the classic car club. These distinctive convertibles have classic styling and timeless Mercedes-Benz design cues. Legendary German build quality makes this model one of the most usable modern classics money can buy. A good example with an original factory hardtop will give year round driving. This splendid Mercedes-Benz 500 SL is finished in red with a contrasting tan interior, a recently replaced black soft top and is supplied with a matching factory hardtop and stand.

    • ModelTD
    • FE Cat descThe classic image of an MG parked rakishly beside the Nissan hut while a dozen Spitfire pilots scramble to their awaiting aircraft is part of the national psyche and was a common sight right around airfields in the South East during the Second World War. They were the car of choice for pilot officers and rightly so. Quick, pretty and reliable, just what was required during those stolen moments of relief from the aerial battles going on overhead. The TC superseded the ‘A’ and ‘B’ in 1945 followed by the TD in 1950. Offered with excellent green coachwork and contrasting red interior, this charming example benefitted from a chassis up re-build in 2002 complete with photographic record and many of the original invoices and receipts. The engine has been re-built with the cylinder head converted for unleaded fuel, new +030" piston rings, a re-metal /grind crank shaft, new big end shells and a Stainless steel exhaust. After a change of ownership in 2004, the interior was replaced including carpets, side screens, hood and tonneau cover. Registered and verified by the MG Octagon Car Club, it was allocated an age related number plate in 2004 and regularly serviced and maintained since. In 2012, the speedometer was repaired, refurbished and set to zero in January 2012 with some 1500 miles since and an estimated maximum total of 7,000 dry weather miles since the car was re-built. More recently, it has benefitted from a new water pump, thermostat and housing in August 2018 with brakes and master cylinder overhauled in 2019. In superb condition throughout and very reasonably priced, this time-less classic certainly follows the Spitfire maxim, quick, pretty and reliable.

    • ModelE36 M3 Coupé
    • FE Cat descThe E36 was BMW’s third generation of the popular executive car range. This variant was created to replace the, already successful, E30 chassis platform and benefited from a multilink rear suspension set-up that improved handling characteristics dramatically. This particular car was the flagship M3 variant offered in a bright Hellrot paint with the sought after Alcantara and cloth 'Vader' interior. The M3 was designed to give the driver a more focused and performance orientated driving experience. Powered by a high revving 3.0 litre engine producing an impressive 286bhp, the M3 had heaps of performance within a car that could be used every day. The M3 also benefited from improved brakes and a limited slip differential to separate it from the rest of the BMW range. The M3’s potential, affordable price tag and usability, propelled the car to automotive superstardom making it the benchmark coupé that other manufactures aim to compete with. The skyrocketing residual values of the earlier generation M3’s has had a halo effect on the rest of the BMW range over the last few years, meaning well maintained examples of the E36 are at an all-time high, making them highly desirable to any budding driver and collector looking for a fun vehicle to invest in. Specified from new with five speed manual gearbox, limited slip differential, E36 M3 'Vader' seats, electric sunroof, mirrors and windows and 'EVO' boot spoiler, this is a fabulous, collector quality, example. Tough to fault from any angle. Impressive provenance and history, including the original driver’s manual, stamped maintenance book and black BMW wallet are found in the comprehensive history file accompanying this car. This is a stunning example of a truly eye-catching car which is certainly a future benchmark classic.

    • ModelFJ Landcruiser
    • FE Cat descEven though Jeep had proven to be the go-to choice for American off-roaders and Land Rover had developed a keen following in the UK, Toyota decided to enter the FJ40 Land Cruiser into the fray in 1960 as an affordable off-road vehicle that was ready and willing to take its competitors head on. The FJ40 quickly proved to be an excellent alternative to its western rivals and definitely helped to put Toyota on the map. The car proved to be incredibly versatile and reliable and its styling was cutting edge for an off-road vehicle. The FJ40 was built to be ruggedly worn into the ground over hundreds of thousands of miles and, as a result, highly original examples are rare to find, let alone ones that have benefited from a complete restoration. Therefore, these examples are seldom seen today and are tremendously desirable among collectors looking to add an element of fun to their collection. Presented in green with a black interior, this wonderful example underwent a full nut and bolt restoration in 2015 and is powered by a powerful V8 mated to a manual gearbox which provides more than adequate power when required. It is fitted with special off-road professional rock climber equipment including special shock absorbers, tyres, low ratio differential and gear box. This iconic 4X4 has also been equipped with a roll cage and a front mounted electric winch. It has spent much of its life in California hence its wonderful condition and with summer around the corner, it would be great to take to the beach or just cruise the countryside.

Equally as popular at the golf club as on the motorway, the E46 gained ground on comfort and practicality coupled to a chassis which BMW claimed to be 70% more rigid than its E36 predecessor, it also became a very successful derivative of the BMW 3 series in the premium market war against Audi and Mercedes-Benz.

As the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz line-up, the S-Class has debuted many of the company's latest innovations, including drivetrain technologies, interior features and safety systems (such as seatbelt pre-tensioners). The W220 S-Class was completely restyled in 1999 with a body that was slightly smaller and lighter than its predecessor. As with each new S-Class, the W220 brought in new innovations such as Airmatic air suspension and active ventilated seats (which used miniature fans in the seats to move air through perforations). This top of the range Mercedes-Benz is presented in silver with black leather interior and can only be described as superb throughout. The car comes with air conditioning, electric glass sunroof, electric heated memory seats and cruise control. The spacious interior has delightful ergonomics resulting in a smooth effortless drive. Imported from Japan, there is some service history in Japanese which shows regular services from 2004 to 2011, it comes with an MoT test certificate which expires in October 2019 together with a V5C registration document. We are advised the car drives with no known faults, this S500 is a superb luxury saloon from the iconic German manufacturer which can be owned at a fraction of its original purchase price.

The Fiat 500 surely needs little introduction, suffice to say that this compact car became ripe for tuning with Abarth leading the way in converting them into successful fast road and racing cars of the period. With genuine Abarth models now seeing some extraordinary prices, it is no surprise that many have been converted to replicate these versions of the Fiat 500. However, the surprise is the condition of this particular example. Originally delivered to its first owner in Italy, this was first registered in the UK in December 2016. It is presented in grey with its recently fitted, black and red interior. The car comes with a good history file showing receipts totalling £2,200 from Ricambio International Ltd, Italian car specialists. The engine and gearbox were reconditioned in 2017 and it has had little use since, as verified by the MoT test certificate history. Works undertaken include a new fitted sunroof, new carpets, fuel tank, starter motor and engine mounts. It is UK registered and comes with an indoor fitted cover in Italian colours and looks fantastic. Great fun to drive and a head turner wherever it goes.

    • ModelCamargue by Pininfarina 'Limited Edition'
    • FE Cat desc DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION Pininfarina's one-off Bentley T-Series Coupé Special, conceived in 1965, to potentially spawn a new generation 'Continental', was finally revealed in 1968. The design turned many heads at Rolls-Royce and Pininfarina were soon set the challenge to more strongly differentiate a new ‘two-door saloon’ from the rest of the Rolls-Royce family. This being the only occasion, since the war, that an external design house has been invited to design a production vehicle for the company. Ultimately launched in January 1975, the Pininfarina Camargue was made exclusively available to ‘invited’ customers. The sharp design certainly set the car apart, reinforced by a price tag 50% more expensive than a Silver Shadow, giving it the mantle of being the most expensive car in the world, with each car taking a full six months to build there was little wonder why. In total, 530 examples were built across an 11 year reign with the final twelve cars being designated as 80 year special anniversary models, named 'Limited'. All twelve cars were white with red/white leather interior and a patriotic homage to the flag of St. George. All twelve cars also had the very same opulent specification with individually numbered plaques, Rolls-Royce monogram door cappings and sporting numerous additional finesse features such as a fitted, silver-plated, monogrammed vanity set and crystal a cocktail compartment. Our car is Limited Edition vehicle number seven of twelve and all of these were manufactured in lefthand drive for US customers. Limited car ‘seven’ being delivered new to Los Angeles, California in November 1986. Rolls-Royce and Ferrari dealership, Symbolic of San Diego, serviced the car when it was new and there is a later record of the car being serviced by Mayfair Motors of Escondido in California, having covered 14,649 miles by 1995. The first UK recorded service was by Frank Dale & Stepsons, Rolls-Royce & Bentley specialists, London in 2010, when the recorded mileage was 25,095, after which we understand the Camargue to have been placed into storage. A formal UK registration was designated in 2018 with light recommissioning and service work undertaken by Rolls-Royce specialist Chris Moroney in London since. Copies of the original build sheets from the Rolls-Royce archives are supplied in the history file. The car remains in its original factory specification and presents magnificently. The Camargue is reported as having impeccable road manners and velvet power on tap from the superb V8 powerplant. The toolkit is complete and the spare wheel looks unused, as does the boot compartment generally. The wallet is also present, correct and 'as new', including the green Camargue Limited Edition specific booklet which is also in mint condition. The Camargue was the last of the properly coach-built cars from Crewe and very much the R-Type Continental of the seventies. The crisp and angular styling makes this a real statement motor car and the ultimate personal Rolls-Royce. We haven't been able to find a record of another Limited Edition ever being offered for sale in Europe, so this represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of Pininfarina's boldest and most opulent post-war collector’s pieces, as well as one of Rolls-Royce's rarest.

    • ModelFlying Spur
    • FE Cat descThe Bentley Continental Flying Spur was the second Bentley manufactured since the Volkswagen Group purchased the brand in 1999, after the Continental GT. The Flying Spur is essentially a four-door version of the Continental GT, with a stretched wheelbase and greater length for more spacious rear seating. The two models were similarly priced. The 2013 Spur weighs 5,580lbs and carries the same twin turbo, 6.0 litre W12 engine used in the Continental GT, for an output of 600hp and 533lb/ft of torque. It has a 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 200mph. The steering column-mounted paddle shifters enable direct access to the six-speed gearbox when the ZF transmission is put into ’S’ or sports mode. This impressive Bentley presents extremely well in white with a magnolia leather trim. With low mileage, this Flying Spur has the feel and look of a car that has been well looked after. This is borne out in the service book which boasts ten dealer stamps. The vendor informs us that this handsome Bentley forms part of his chauffeur driven fleet and is a strong favourite amongst his more discerning clientele. Showing just 58,190 miles from new, this stunning saloon is offered to auction with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until October 2019 and includes the cherished registration D6 HEC. This is an inexpensive opportunity to purchase a 200mph luxury Bentley saloon.

    • ModelTR3 Convertible
    • FE Cat descThe TR3 was a huge success for Triumph, mainly because it had a large two litre engine installed into a body that weighed very little. The result was that, for a reasonable price, it could comfortably keep up with the 100mph performance offered by MG and Jaguar. In 1957, the TR3 was replaced by an updated version, the TR3A although the upgrades were largely cosmetic. Presented from a collection owned by a man with his eye on quality, this charming, baby blue example has clearly been well restored back in his home country, South Africa. Owned since 2008, we are informed that it has been serviced regularly and little used as shown by the odometer. It is kept in a heated garage with a number of other precious examples and, given the obvious quality, inside and out, represents excellent value for money.

    • ModelCerbera Speed Six Coupé (4.0 litre)
    • FE Cat descThe TVR Cerbera name is derived from 'Cerberus', the three-headed beast of Greek legend that guarded the entrance of Hades. The car itself was designed from the start as a four-seater, however, the interior is designed so that the passenger seat can slide further forward than the driver's seat which TVR referred to as a '3+1' design. Like all TVRs of the Peter Wheeler era, the Cerbera had a long-travel throttle to compensate for the lack of electronic traction control and very sharp steering. Prior to the Cerbera, TVR had purchased V8 engines from Rover and then tuned them for their own use. When Rover was purchased by BMW, the chairman of TVR, Peter Wheeler, didn't want to risk problems should the Germans decide to stop manufacturing the engine. In response, he engaged the services of race engineer, Al Melling, to design a V8 engine that TVR could manufacture in-house and even potentially offer for sale to other car manufacturers. Wheeler undertook the design of a Speed Six engine to complement it producing 350bhp and capable of 170mph with a 0-60 time of just 4.4 seconds! ​ Presented in metallic Paradise Purple, this spectacular shrinking violet of a 4.0 litre Speed Six has, notably, had its engine rebuilt by TVR in 2003 at 26,500 miles with the necessary upgrades and changes. Since then, the car has been serviced by marque specialists Henley Heritage, Green Star, HHC and recently serviced by TVR101, Surrey, in 2016 and again in October 2018. The chassis condition is stated as excellent due to the insistence of a previous owner that the TVR factory replaced the entire chassis and suspension in 2005, this is documented in the history file which also shows that the underside was Waxoiled and thus presents in fabulous condition today. Offered with a stunning history file and in such impressive order, this could be considered one of, if not, the best Speed Six on the market. Specified with heated windscreen, air conditioning, limited slip differential and AP Racing brake system, this example retains its original specification and viewing is strongly recommended. The 666 in the registration plate hints at the devils work and as with any TVR, this is not for the faint hearted.

    • ModelZele 2000
    • FE Cat descThe Zagato Zele was a small electric car built by the famed Italian design house Zagato of Milan who were better known for designing some of the most exotic and beautiful cars available for marques such as Aston Martin, Lancia and Alfa Romeo. The Zele was conceived at the time of the fuel crisis in the mid 1970's and was produced between 1974 and 1976. Total production run was somewhere in the low hundreds; it was a rare car in period and is even more so today. Three variants were produced, the 1000, 1500 and 2000, each referring to increased power output of the electric motor. With fibreglass bodywork over a steel framed chassis, it was derived from the Fiat 500 and Fiat 124 and powered by four 12 volt batteries. The batteries were easily charged simply by plugging them directly into the mains supply via a transformer. Presented today is a 1976 manufactured Zele 2000 finished in orange with contrasting interior. Urbanina SPA were responsible for very early development of electric vehicles in Italy and the rights to their early developments were purchased by Zagato, this then led to the development of the Zagato Zele. These quirky cars have a four position speed selector and a range of approximately 50 miles (80km). Supplied with a V5C registration document and built by one of the great Italian coachbuilders, surely, this must represent a rare opportunity for the Zagato or microcar collector.

    • ModelVogue TDi
    • FE Cat descThe first generation Range Rover was initially not designed as a luxury 4x4; while certainly upmarket compared to the preceding Land Rover models. The early Range Rovers had fairly basic, utilitarian interiors with vinyl seats and plastic dashboards designed to be washed down with a hose. Features such as power assisted steering, carpeted floors, air conditioning, cloth/leather seats and wooden interior trim were fitted later. The Range Rover was a body-on-frame design with a box section ladder type chassis, similar to contemporary Land Rovers. It utilised coil springs as opposed to leaf springs, permanent four-wheel drive, four-wheel disc brakes and was originally powered by the Rover V8 engine. This example is presented in fabulous order throughout, it has had just two owners from new, both fastidious in their care of the car and today presents as if restored. We are assured, however, it is in this condition purely due to the quality of care and ownership. Offered in black with contrasting grey velour trim and presented with an original letter from the supplying dealer, this Vogue specification car was importantly Waxoiled from new. We are informed the car has been garaged throughout its life, initially by the first owner, a garage proprietor, and then a Range Rover enthusiast and club member, indeed, getting underneath the car provides any buyer with the confidence needed to trust in the quality of this classic Range Rover. At 95,000 miles the original engine was professionally replaced with a later Land Rover 3000 TDi engine and this manual version sits on recently replaced Michelin tyres and offers power steering and a fully fitted tow bar with electrics, making it extremely capable as well as impressive in its condition. ​Importantly, as stated by the vendor this car has 'no rot' and is presented in collector condition, it could make an entirely capable on or off road utility car in 90's luxury, certainly cooler than, and nearly as capable as, the ever popular utilitarian Land Rover Defender which has become so popular of late. Offered with the original handbooks, two sets of keys and a current MoT test certificate valid until November 2019, viewing is strongly recommended.

    • ModelMorris Minor Pick-up 'Fast Road'
    • FE Cat descWith Austin and Morris both being part of BMC, the Minor-based Morris commercials were also marketed as the Austin 6cwt and Austin 8cwt with a closed van and open pick-up versions. They were designed for commercial use with small businesses in mind, although many made their way to larger corporations. The van version was popular with the Post Office, with both the van and the pick-up differing from the monocoque construction of the Saloon and Traveller variant by having a separate chassis. They also differed in details such as telescopic rear dampers, stiffer rear leaf springs and lower ratio differentials to cope with the heavier loads. This Austin Morris Pick-up is presented in blue with black trim and was the project of our vendor, he wanted a fun yet practical vehicle and the result is more fun than you can shake a stick at with the ability to still load the rear with the farms hay! The engine has been replaced with a 1340cc unit including fast road cam and a large single SU carburettor, this combined to a tubular exhaust system and a 3.77:1 differential turns this mundane looking utility vehicle to a road going hooligan. Due to the added power and speed, the front brakes were upgraded to disc brakes and the whole car painted and trimmed well. Although well loved by our vendor he now requires something larger... perhaps a fast road Transit is next! Supplied with a V5C registration document, this Austin badged pick-up is rare and offered for sale without reserve.

    • ModelDB7 Coupé
    • FE Cat descIntroduced in 1993 to the public, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin's first six cylinder model since production of the DBS had finished in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen. Arguably one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted new customers worldwide with its traditional layout of the curvaceous two door coupé body and robust six cylinder engine. Power was supplied by an all alloy double overhead camshaft supercharged 24 valve, inline six cylinder engine which produced 335bhp at 5750rpm. Regarded by many as the purist modern Aston Martin, the DB7 will undoubtedly be a collectable car for years to come and is equally at home in the city or out on the open road. This outstanding Aston Martin was originally supplied by Stratstone of Mayfair and registered on 1st August 1997. This is a rare ‘Series Two’ airbag model with a five speed manual gearbox. The colour of Malvern Silver was originally a launch colour for the DB7 however the original purchaser of this example liked the colour so much, he special ordered the car in it with full Warm Charcoal hide, black carpets, smoke grey alcantara headlining and burr walnut veneers. The specification of this Aston Martin is significant, it is fitted with an Aston Martin works service engine power upgrade, tubular exhaust manifold with a special sports extractor exhaust system, lightened flywheel and clutch; all this gives an extra 50bhp increase over the standard car. It is also fitted with driving dynamics, upgraded front and rear brakes which includes larger ventilated discs and four-pot aluminium calipers. It sits on a set of recently refurbished, split-rim alloy wheels and new Bridgestone tyres all round. Rear park distance control, special exhaust tail pipes, heated front windscreen and a bright finish stainless steel mesh front grille complete the impressive specification. With 24 stamps in the service book, the last major service being carried out at 104,817 miles, it is clear this has been a very well maintained example. Supplied with the original service books and previous MoT test certificates dating back to June 2000, a comprehensive history folder, V5 registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 1st October 2019. The condition and history of this Aston Martin defies the mileage and should be a serious contender for any potential purchaser.

    • ModelT25 Campervan
    • FE Cat descHaving inspired a generation, a movement and a musical era, the Type 25 carried on from where the original Volkswagen Camper began in the late 1960's. The Volkswagen Type 2 (T3), also known as the T25 or Vanagon in the United States, was one of the last new Volkswagen platforms to use an air-cooled engine, succeeded by a water-cooled boxer engine from 1983. The third generation of the Volkswagen Transporter marketed under various nameplates worldwide was larger and heavier than its predecessor, the T2, with a more squared and less rounded styling and manufactured in Germany from 1979 until 1990. Many summers have been spent enjoying festivals, beaches and travelling the world in VW campervans, and to this day they remain the most popular, some would say 'cool' small campers despite fierce competition from almost every other car manufacturer trying to muscle in.

    • ModelXJR-S (6.0 Litre)
    • FE Cat descBMW had its Motorsport division and Mercedes had AMG, so it stood to reason that Jaguar should have its own performance division if it was to compete with the European powerhouses. In 1988, that division was launched under the name JaguarSport, a 50/50 joint venture between Jaguar and Tom Walkinshaw’s TWR Group, with the mission of developing and producing a range of modified Jaguars for the British and European markets. The signature product was the Jaguar XJR-S. While the XJR-S may have had the appearance of a standard Jaguar XJR coupé, nearly every mechanical part was unique, based around a 6.0 litre version of Jaguar’s V12, an engine which was not available in any other production Jaguar. Each car left the factory as a hand-built unit from JaguarSport’s manufacturing facility at Bloxham, which would have been unheard of, had it not been the place where JaguarSport built the legendary XJ220. The engine was rated at 318hp and was 700cc larger than the previous 5.3 litre V12. A modified intake system and a low-loss true dual exhaust system was part of the car’s advanced specification. The suspension also received a full working over at TWR. Coil spring rates increased and Bilstein shocks, front and rear, were specially tuned for the XJR-S. Externally, the cars were modified with an aggressive bodykit. A host of modifications inside included a Connolly Autolux leather interior. With only 115 built in righthand drive, this extremely rare example has been owned by the current vendor for the past six years. A Jaguar enthusiast who searched for a long time before finding a good condition, unmolested example which he has maintained and improved over the duration of his ownership. Testament to the car’s condition, it was featured on the cover of Jaguar World magazine with a two page spread in 2015. The fastidious owner has maintained the car regardless of cost and it comes with plenty of invoices and history including the magazine the car was featured in. Always garaged, this beautifully example has been ceramic wax polished and the wheels are also ceramic coated. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a substantial history file, the car has a current MoT test certificate valid until April 2020. This is a rare chance to acquire the ultimate evolution of the XJS series, hand-built in the legendary Jaguar Motorsport factory.

    • ModelMéhari
    • FE Cat descAlmost certainly inspired by BMC’s Mini Moke, the Citroën Méhari first appeared in prototype form in 1967 and like its British counterpart was based on a standard production car. In the Citroën’s case it was the Dyane 6 version of the inimitable 2CV, so the Méhari featured the latter’s torsion-bar, suspension and air-cooled 602cc twin-cylinder engine driving the front wheels. The open body was made of ABS plastic and, like the Moke, a detachable soft-top and side screens served as weather protection. Taking its name from a type of camel known for its speed, the Méhari was launched at the Paris Auto Show in October 1968 and would remain in the range for the next 20 years, only disappearing when 2CV production ceased in France in 1988, by which time a total of 144,953 had been made. This wonderful and fun vehicle was originally built in France, it was then imported to the UK where it was converted to righthand drive and extensively restored and rebuilt. It has a galvanised chassis, new galvanised spaceframe, new tyres, new hood, panels and frame. The ABS plastic body panels have been replaced and repainted in the striking orange you see today. The engine and gearbox have been recommissioned and there are too many other new and replacement parts to list. Contained within the history file there is a six page itemised invoice from a specialist vehicle restorer amounting to £9868 and a photographic record of the restoration. This fun, practical and economic little car comes with a V5C registration document and a dating certificate from the Citroën Car Club. The perfect way to enjoy the summer, which is only just around the corner!

    • FE Cat descThe Ferrari P4 is a name that captures the imagination and may be considered one of the most revered Ferraris of all time. Although beautiful, with its curvaceous sleek lines, it still retains an aggressive demeanour of a pure, Le Mans, sports racing car. Only one complete car remains of the four originally built, and therefore, an elusive sight for many Ferrari enthusiasts. It is perhaps not surprising, given their scarcity, that this great design would be replicated and so it has with varying degrees of quality.

    • ModelTR4A IRS
    • FE Cat descGiovanni Michelotti was one of the foremost designers of the time and his artistry shows with the TR4A. The addition of chrome accents and the natural flow from the subtle bulge of the headlights all the way to the rear end is beautifully proportioned. The TR4A had power to match as well; the 2.2 litre engine was good for 110mph and when equipped, in 1965 onwards, with independent rear suspension (IRS), provided exceptional rear-wheel camber control with excellent wheel travel while softer springs thus vastly improving the ride quality. As a side note, during the Sebring 12 Hours in 1966, three IRS-equipped TR4As achieved a remarkable 1-2-3 class victory. Proof positive I think you will agree. The excellent example here today was originally white according to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate but was latterly painted Carmine Red in 2017. Prior to this, ongoing works have taken place according to requirements. New polished stainless steel bumpers were also fitted in 2017 and before that an overdrive was installed in 2012 with the rear differential rebuilt incorporating the correct ratios for the unit. Chrome wire wheels with spinners and shod with new Vredestein tyres, including the spare. The hood is a new Double Duck example complete with hoodbag and the steering wheel has been upgraded to a dished, wood-rimed Moto-Lita one. The overall condition, especially the paintwork, is excellent. You may be able to find a fault with this motorcar but I couldn’t and I would be extremely happy to own it. Offered without reserve.

    • ModelTR6
    • FE Cat descDUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION To modernise the Triumph TR5 that had evolved from the Michelotti designed TR4, Triumph looked to produce a new modern body. Triumph commissioned Karmann of Germany but the task was difficult as Karmann had to produce a new body style whilst retaining much of the original structure. The re-style included a new nose, wings and a new tail. The result was the 'Kamm' tailed TR6 and was produced between 1969 and 1976. The home market TR6 initially produced 150bhp but was later detuned to 125bhp. Due to their greater power output, the early models are sought after amongst the Triumph enthusiasts. This particular example was purchased by the present owner in April 1984 and he has cherished it ever since. Accompanying the car is a substantial history file containing photos of the extensive work carried out over the years, in particular are the invoices from Racetorations totalling £26,343 for the many upgrades which were carried out in 2006. Some of these included the fitting of a Quaife limited slip differential, triple 45DCOE Weber carburettors installed and much more. Presented in black with a black interior and white piping, the owner also had a new mohair hood (also in black) made and fitted some years ago. This car has also had Minilite wheels fitted and a half roll cage installed in the rear. The throaty six cylinder engine sounds glorious through its twin stainless steel exhaust system and priced sensibly, this is a great opportunity to own a wonderful British classic which is so much fun to drive.
