    • Model20/60 T-Type Richmond Saloon
    • FE Cat descThe Vauxhall 20/60 is a four or five-seater saloon, limousine, tourer or coupé-cabriolet which began manufacture on 28 September 1927 with a six-cylinder engine and a four-speed gearbox. The initial 2.7-litre engine was enlarged to three litres after 12 months. Priced to be at the lower end of the luxury market with six cylinders, four speeds and five brakes, the better endowed 20/60 replaced the four cylinder Vauxhall 14-40. Though the new engine's capacity or swept volume was enlarged just 465cc, the vagaries of the RAC or tax formula moved its tax rating from 14HP to 20HP. Its design was completed before General Motors took control in late 1925. This wonderful car left the production line at Vauxhall in 1929 as a complete running chassis and later fitted with a Richmond body to the new owner’s choice and was first registered and supplied by Woodyatt Motors of Southend-on-Sea on 26th March 1930. It is understood that the car stayed there until 1954 after which it went to Norwich and Northampton. It is believed that it was never exported and always remained in the UK. In fact, the car still holds its original registration number from 1930 and comes with its original green log book stating various past owners. It is beautifully presented and has been the subject of a major body-off restoration mostly done by Hartford Motors of Oxford in 1981. During the restoration, the chassis and running gear were completely restored and the body also restored and coach painted to the original colours; every working part has meticulously been checked, restored, reconditioned or replaced making this car a perfect usable example of this glorious make and model. Small discrete modifications have been added to make the vehicle more usable in modern traffic with the view that the new owner will want to drive it to various classic car shows around the country. It now has a usable fuel gauge, temperature gauge, isolator switch plus a Kenlow cooling fan, thermostatically controlled. The electrics have been renewed, digitalised and led bulbs fitted. All these items have been fitted discretely and are not noticeable thus making it usable in all conditions. The interior offers the perfect collaboration of elegant luxurious detailing and comes complete with the very rare and famous Vauxhall Speedbird bonnet mascot. This vehicle has had an estimated figure of over £100,000 spent over the years to get it to this fabulous and very usable condition. A separate sheet in the history file lists most of the work that has been done over the years. With very few of these cars surviving and even fewer ever being offered for sale, we hope the new owner will value the rarity of this glorious example.

    • Model911S (2.4 Litre)
    • FE Cat descThe original Porsche 911 with its famous, distinctive and durable design was introduced in the autumn of 1963 and built until 1989. Mechanically, it was notable for being rear-engined and air-cooled. From its inception, the 911 was modified both by private racing teams and the Porsche factory itself for racing, rallying and other automotive competitions. The original 911 series is often cited as the most successful competition car ever, especially when its variations are included; namely the powerful 911 derived 935 which won Le Mans as well as other major sports cars races. The pre-impact bumper 911S 2.4 was made from 1972 to 1973. In 1972 the cars left the production line with the oil filler cap located behind the righthand door. Porsche then, in 1972, moved the oil tank nearer to the middle of the car for optimum weight distribution only to be forced to move it back in 1973 due to American customers, in particular, using it incorrectly as a fuel filler. No such treatment befell this Italian supplied car. The 1972 model is therefore regarded as the perfect handling 911 and the most desirable. The 2.4 S produced 190bhp at 6500rpm with a compression ratio of 8.5:1 that gave it a projected top speed of 147mph, nearly equalling the performance of the infamous production homologation special, the legendary 1973 RS which was based on it. Only the displacement of 2.4 litres verses 2.7 and a different cam in the fuel injection pump separates the two models mechanically. This excellent, matching numbers, lefthand drive, 1972 Porsche 911S coupé with a side oil tank 'Oel Klapper', was supplied new to Italy where it remained until being purchased by the current vendor from a deceased estate in 2015. In 2018 the car was sent to Dal Jones Automotive Ltd, a Porsche specialist based in Essex, where the engine received a full rebuild. Finished in Albert Blue with tan leather interior, this lovely Porsche 911S coupé is supplied with a V5C registration document, a certificate of authenticity and copies of the Italian registration documents. The 911S coupé is not only a proper driver's car but with the values of 911's, particularly the S, on the rise, this striking example can also be regarded as an extremely sound investment.

    • Model280GE G-Wagon
    • FE Cat descThe Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagon, short for Geländewagen, (cross-country vehicle) is characterised by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. The G-Class is still in production and is one of the longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler's history. It was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran and offered as a civilian version in 1979. The first major refinements were introduced in 1981, including an automatic transmission, air conditioning, an auxiliary fuel tank, protective headlamp grilles and a cable winch. Fuel injection became available in 1982 when the 230GE was introduced in Turin, along with more comfortable and supportive front seats, auxiliary heating, wider tyres and fender flares. For 1985, differential locks, central door locking and a tachometer become standard. Originally delivered in 1990, this good looking automatic 280GE G-Wagon has benefitted from an impressive restoration. The list of works includes a full body off restoration which involved changing various body panels and new front wings, a complete suspension and running gear rebuild, a reconditioned petrol tank, a new radiator with hoses, belts and pumps. The file for G948 JHB contains a number of previous MoT test certificates, a well stamped service book and the original owner’s manual. The restoration works completed are documented in an impressive bound book. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until March 2020, surely this superb G-Wagon must be one of the finest examples in today's market place.

    • ModelVirage
    • FE Cat descIntroduced at the 1988 Birmingham Motor Show, the Virage was Aston Martin’s replacement for the decades old V8 models. The Virage was launched as the top of the range car for Aston Martin. It is easy to see why this handbuilt, all aluminium V8 was king of the Astons. The 32 valve, 5.3 litre engine elevated the performance of the Virage to near sports car level. It was stated by Sports Car International on an early test that 'Acceleration just never seems to run out' and they also praised 'the eager and quicker revving' nature of the engine, with its Callaway designed heads and Weber-Marelli fuel injection. They concluded that 'nothing sounds quite like an Aston V8'. This handsome Aston Martin Virage presents extremely well in Buckinghamshire Green with Parchment leather interior. One of only 426 Virages produced between 1988 and 1995, it was delivered via the Murray Motor Company and was first owned by Mr. F Keenan of Bowden, Manchester. The paperwork file indicates minimal usage by the following owners, covering a mere 300 miles between 2006 and 2013. There does, however, appear to be an error with the odometer which currently reads 90,000 miles, this appears to be incorrect taking into account the service and MoT history. In 2013, this Virage was considered good enough to be loaned to the Aston Martin Heritage Trust for display purposes. More recently, this Virage has been cared for by Retrospective of Banbury, as evidenced by bills on file totalling nearly £5,500. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, a valid MoT test certificate and various bills. The Virage was produced in such small numbers that this stunning car could prove to be a sound investment.

    • Model911/993 Turbo
    • FE Cat descThe 993 Turbo, introduced in mid 1995, retained a tight hold on the torch of the most powerful 911 variant whilst continuing the general development and improvements to the breed as a whole. Amongst the new features on the Turbo was an electronically controlled, viscous coupling, all-wheel-drive system. Something Porsche had not offered on a turbocharged model since the 959 and a system that greatly improved the driveability of the car. Under the engine cover, now topped with a sculpted spoiler tail with downturned edges, lived the 3.6 litre, flat-six force-fed by twin K16 turbos. Combined with bigger brakes, fatter tires, a wide body and lower stance, the 993 Turbo was one of the fastest cars on the planet. With all four wheels helping to evenly distribute great handfuls of power, 0-60mph was dispatched in a staggering 3.7 seconds, 100mph whistled by in a further 5.7 seconds and the linear forward thrust continued until the speedometer needle had said goodbye to 180mph and you were on conversational terms with the horizon.

    • Model600D Multipla
    • FE Cat descSome ideas are just moments of genius, shifting a concept around 180° and leaving other manufacturers playing catch-up. This was the case with Fiats new Multipla. Not only was it their first rear wheel drive car but they went one step further and moved the cockpit over the front wheels allowing this interior to now seat six people in three rows in comfort. A concept still in production today. The engine in the 600D was 767cc unit, an eminently flexible motor with a top speed just under 70mph making these charming and practical little vehicles among the most sought after of all post-war Fiats. Most of this Multipla’s life has been spent in a Fiat garage in its home country, specifically Bologna. Whilst there, it only had two owners from new. In January 2016, Fiat specialists expertly restored this example with all paint stripped off to bare metal, corrosion removed and fresh paint reapplied in the original colour scheme of white over blue. The engine has been up-rated with a sports camshaft, modified carburettor and an Abarth exhaust system, now producing circa 57bhp and enabling this Fiat better able to cope with modern traffic while an up-rated cooling system and electric fan help keep engine temperatures within acceptable limits. Indeed, all running gear has been renewed or refurbished as necessary. In lovely condition throughout, this charming Multipla requires no additional work and benefits from a new carpet set from specialist, Proietti. It even features its original radio.

    • ModelCowley Tourer (11.9hp)
    • FE Cat descMorris Motors began in 1912 when bicycle manufacturer, William Morris, moved on from the sale, hire and repair of cars to car manufacturing. He planned a new light car assembled from bought-in components, in this way he was able to retain ownership by keeping within the bounds of his own capital resources. A factory was opened in 1913 at the former Oxford Military College in Cowley, Oxford, where Morris's first car, the two seat Morris Oxford 'Bullnose' was assembled. Morris Cowley was a name given to various cars produced by the Morris Motor Company from 1915 to 1958. In 1926, the Bullnose radiator was replaced by a flat version known as the Flatnose and built by Morris until 1931.

    • ModelCorvette C1
    • FE Cat descGeneral Motors designer Harley Earl loved sports cars and was influenced by the GI’s bringing home MGs, Jaguars, Alfa Romeos and the like after hostilities ceased in Europe in 1945. Even the small independent carmaker, Nash Motors, began selling a two seater sports car in 1951. Earl convinced GM that they also needed to build a two seat sports car. Earl and his 'special projects' crew began working on the new car later that year which was code named 'Opel'. The result was the 1953 Corvette taking its name from the Corvette, a small, manoeuvrable fighting frigate and it was unveiled to the public at that year's Motorama Car Show. This lovely example is finished in red and white with a red interior and a black hood. Under the bonnet is the robust 4.7 litre Chevrolet V8 engine mated to a manual gearbox which makes for great driving. This iconic American classic was imported into the UK in 1991, where it is presumed to have resided in a private collection, as the first registration in the UK was carried out by the present owner when he bought it in 2011. Various minor works, including a gearbox overhaul in 2013 by Ian Goss Services (invoice record on file) have been carried out by the owner, accompanying the car is a comprehensive history file documenting this work and other works carried out by the previous owner. The car has been kept garaged and used sparingly hence its wonderful condition.

    • ModelGallardo
    • FE Cat descManufactured from 2003 to 2013 the Lamborghini Gallardo is important in the history of the Sant Agata firm as it represents the most successful model in their history. Both eminently usable and, importantly, reliable, the V10 sportscar had total Audi backup which made it hugely desirable and, subsequently, the most successful sportscar built from this particular Carrozzeria. Its secret lies in its light but stiff space frame chassis mounted to a five litre, V10 engine powering all four wheels on demand. Offered with two choices of transmission; a conventional six-speed manual transmission and an advanced six-speed electro-hydraulically controlled, semi-automatic which Lamborghini abbreviates to 'E-gear'. This allows the driver to make gear changes much faster than they could with a manual gearbox. This 2004, righthand drive 'E-gear' car is offered in near faultless Nero Serapis with Nero black leather trim, it is privately owned and has been fastidiously maintained. Sitting on Pirelli tyres and coupled to the RSC carbon-fibre front and rear bumper packs, this example was purchased by our vendor after a two year search for the best Gallardo he could buy. Originally supplied by Lamborghini London on 16th January 2004, this example was serviced with supplying main dealer until Lamborghini Lancaster Sevenoaks in 2012. This has since been annually serviced, irrespective of mileage, by well known Lamborghini specialists, the most recent in June last year. The vendor has noted that, importantly, the clutch, flywheel, brake discs and pads were all changed at 23,591 miles with SB engineering, Lamborghini specialists in Hertfordshire. It is supplied with a full stamped service history, original book pack, a V5C registration document, previous MoT test certificates and many receipts, two keys and a fitted tracker. The condition of the car speaks for itself, it has wanted for nothing. A true supercar and with a price tag of over £135,000, when new, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a properly maintained example that is surely a future classic. It would be difficult to find a Gallardo in better condition. *Interested parties should note the number plate shown G414RDO 'Gallardo' is to be retained and a new, age-related registration issued instead, however it can be purchased through separate negotiation.

    • ModelXK120 Roadster (3.4 litre)
    • FE Cat descIt was at the 1948 London Motor Show that Jaguar virtually threw the sports car world into turmoil with its stunning XK120. Here was a car with incredible style and looks, a powerful six cylinder engine installed in an outstanding chassis and a remarkably low price, a quarter of that of a V12 Ferrari with similar performance. The combination was unbeatable and without doubt the XK120 was an absolute milestone for both Jaguar and the motor industry as a whole. XK120 orders flooded in, ironic as it was designed as an interim model to publicise the XK engine for the new Mk. VII saloon. Jaguar had only planned to produce around 200! At the heart of the William Lyons styled roadster was that all-new 3,442cc twin overhead camshaft XK engine, producing 160bhp via twin SU carburettors, sufficient for 126mph and 0-60mph in 10.0 seconds. The XK120 became a massive success, both on the road and the track where it scored numerous victories, the many drivers including Stirling Moss, Peter Walker, Peter Whitehead, Leslie Johnson and Ian Appleyard; indeed, in XK120C/C-Type form it won Le Mans in both 1951 and 1953, while its engine was to power three more Sarthe winners and a whole host of Jaguars right up to the present day. This vehicle was originally supplied by St. Helier Garages, Jersey and despatched to its first owner Mr. R. L. Sangan on 5th December 1950. This fabulous British sportscar has a most interesting and fully documented history which can be found in the vehicle file. It has recently been the subject of a full restoration, both bodywork/chassis and many mechanical upgrades comprising of a conversion to a 12 volt battery, electronic ignition has been fitted and a front disc brake conversion together with a servo. A Kenlowe fan and alloy header tank have been fitted, an alternator conversion and a manual choke conversion carried out. The rear brakes have been overhauled and a full stainless steel exhaust system has been fitted. The dampers have been replaced and it sits of a new set of Michelin radial tyres. Prior to the above, the engine was internally inspected and the mileage we believe is genuine according to the owner, although not warranted. The gearbox was stripped and rebuilt together with a new clutch fitted. The car had a full bare metal respray, fabrication and brightwork. The bare metal being treated to two coats of epoxy resin, primer, direct gloss and premium lacquer. The interior was retrimmed with quality hide in a contrasting tan colour. The above, combined with numerous additional mechanical works carried out, (which can be found in the history file) makes for a very useable and enjoyable XK120 which will return reliability for many a year to come. This vehicle is supplied with a matching spare wheel, tonneau, original green log book and Jaguar Damiler Heritage Trust Certificate.

    • ModelPhantom III Sedanca de Ville by Gurney Nutting
    • FE Cat descReplacing the elegant Silver Ghost chassis was no easy task for Rolls-Royce. After the end of the Great War and in the depths of a recession a smaller, cheaper, 20HP six cylinder model was designed. Innovative features were incorporated with the engine such as overhead valve gear and a centre change gearbox. The new model which debuted in 1925 was a more than worthy successor. Later named the Phantom I, the new model took Rolls-Royce into the modern mid-twenties era of motoring. The design philosophy of the marque remained careful evolution rather than revolutionary. Introduced at the Olympia Motor Exhibition in 1935, the Rolls-Royce Phantom III was an immediate favourite of the ruling classes. With innovative engineering and an imposing presence, the Phantom III was the most sophisticated and powerful pre-war Rolls-Royce. Mounted behind the unmistakable radiator was something entirely new and unique to the Phantom III, an all-aluminium V12 engine. In fact, the Phantom III was the first and only Rolls-Royce powered by 12 cylinders until the introduction of the Silver Seraph in 1998. This engine, displacing 7.3 litres, featured a twin ignition system along with twin spark plugs per cylinder, twin fuel pumps, aluminium heads and wet liners. The choice of a V12 configuration was a logical one for Rolls-Royce, the company already having had considerable experience of manufacturing V12 aero engines such as that used in the record-breaking Supermarine S6B seaplane. No doubt another consideration was the need to match the multi-cylinder opposition, notably the V16 Cadillac and V12 Hispano-Suiza. Despite its size, the Phantom III was quite brisk in its performance, operating in near silence. Like its iconic forbearer the Silver Ghost, the Phantom III was capable of reaching speeds nearing 100 miles per hour, an impressive feat for any motorcar of the era. Most chassis were fitted with large four door bodies, well suited to the dimensions and proportions of the car. Just 727 examples were manufactured when production came to an abrupt end in 1939 at the outbreak of World War II, with Rolls-Royce shifting all production to aiding the war effort. The Rolls-Royce Phantom III was an exclusively coachbuilt automobile. Most of the great British coachbuilding firms offered designs, many of them unique, on the Phantom III chassis. Some of the most widely admired were the work of J Gurney Nutting, who were responsible for bodying this car, chassis number '3AX109'. Gurney Nutting gained its Royal Warrant in the early 1930s and added Daimler and Rolls-Royce to their portfolio in the mid 1920s. This outstanding Phantom III Sedanca de Ville was originally supplied to the Marquess of Queensberry and has spent much of its life in the U.S. The coachwork is in good order, as is the interior and chromework. Without doubt this Rolls-Royce, with such an impressive stature, has been lovingly cared for and whether you are the driver of this vehicle or a passenger, the level of comfort and smoothness is unrivalled. In recent times, this car has been part of a private collection and used very little of late. We are advised she drives well with no known faults; the car comes with a V5C registration document and an almost complete set of tools in the boot. ​Thought to have been restored in the U.S., this car features in Lawrence Dalton's book, 'Rolls-Royce The Derby Phantoms' (page 371) and is recorded in several editions of the Rolls-Royce Owners Club's Directory.

    • ModelSilver Dawn Standard Steel Saloon
    • FE Cat descThe Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn is a car that was produced at their Crewe works between 1949 and 1955. It was the first Rolls-Royce to be offered with a factory built body which it shared, along with its chassis, with the Bentley Mk. VI until 1952 and then the Bentley R-Type until production finished in 1955. The car was first introduced as an export only model. The lefthand drive models had column gear shifts while righthand drives had a floor gear shift by the door. A mere 760 were produced between 1949 and 1955. Earlier models, up to circa May 1954, had a different dashboard from the Bentley Mk. VI and R-Type and were fitted with a single exhaust system. The in-line, six-cylinder engine had overhead inlet and side exhaust valves and had a capacity of 4257cc until 1951 when it was enlarged to 4566cc. The carburettor was a single downdraught Stromberg until 1952 when it was replaced by a Zenith. The suspension was independent at the front using coil springs; at the rear the live axle used half elliptic leaf springs. Servo assisted 12.25" drum brakes were hydraulically operated at the front but retained mechanical operation at the rear. Although many cars were fitted with factory built bodies, others were supplied to external coachbuilders. This truly remarkable Rolls-Royce is testament to the quality of British manufacturing of the 1950s. This car was purchased by Colonel A Malcolm Scott in 1954 from H. R. Owen in Berkeley Street, London and since then was serviced regularly, once a year, by Lex Mead of Market Street, Maidenhead, Berkshire whilst in his custodianship. When the present owner purchased this vehicle in 1975, the service manager of Lex Mead commented that he had known the car for many years and everything that needed doing to the car was always done when it came in for a service. The original records had been destroyed by this time but from July 1968 the car had only done about 14,000 miles because Colonel Scott was getting very old and was retiring. Up until that time the car was driven mainly by himself and since then by a chauffeur. The car has been extremely well maintained whilst in the present ownership and has been stored for many years, only being used sparingly when the weather and time has permitted. In 1978 the car was resprayed into the colours it bears today which still look fabulous. This wonderful and serene looking Rolls-Royce is presented in silver/black with its original red leather interior, which is in wonderful condition and original front bumper mounted additional lights. All woodwork has been restored and looks superb and the rear passengers can also enjoy the walnut picnic tables which fold down from the back of the front seats. Its smooth straight-six engine is mated to a manual, floor mounted, gear change and drives extremely well. It comes with its original buff log book showing the present owner’s details as proof that he is indeed the second owner, also accompanying the car is a good history file containing many invoices and various reports. A great British luxury saloon which still graces our roads.

    • ModelSLR McLaren Roadster
    • FE Cat descProbably the only car that will ever be produced as a collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and McLaren and with a production run of just 500 units, the McLaren SLR Roadster is destined to be a true collector’s car. Produced at McLaren’s Woking factory, the specification was incredible from the immensely powerful 5.5 litre supercharged V8 developing 626bhp, accelerating from 0-60 in 3.8 seconds and reaching an eye watering 207mph top speed, making it the most expensive and fastest convertible Mercedes-Benz has ever produced. Introduced in November 2003, it was Mercedes-Benz's foray into the world of the supercar, alongside such greats as the Porsche Carrera GT and the Ferrari Enzo. While Ferrari and Porsche pursued creating the best all-out supercars that the world had ever seen, Mercedes-Benz and McLaren attempted to create a car that combined the best aspects of supercars with that of grand tourers. Engineers took care to place the V8 as far back as possible in the chassis in order to improve the car's handling, giving the SLR near-perfect weight distribution. The car leads to a quarter mile in just over 11 seconds, its AMG Speedshift R transmission provides three manual modes to suit the owner's style of driving. Other remarkable technical features include the Sensotronic 'brake by wire' system, carbon-ceramic disc brakes and an automatic airbrake which can bring the SLR to a screeching halt from 120mph to a dead stop in less than 240 feet. This spectacular example is finished in the stunning colour combination of Crystal Galaxit black with leather Silver Arrow black interior and an Anthracite/black hood. First registered on 12th June 2008 in Lisbon, Portugal, this two owner European car has covered just 7,700 miles and has eight stamps in the service book, including the important major service carried out in October of 2017 and a more recent service this May. This example is, without doubt, one of the best examples of the Mercedes/McLaren collaboration to be found in the marketplace and still boasts the factory stickers on the windscreen. The cockpit area of an SLR is a thing of beauty and to drive one is a memorable experience; this example is no different, the engine fired up immediately when requested as one would expect from such a car. Offered with a host of extras including the limited edition cover, this really must be seen to be appreciated. If you have never driven an SLR, the sound that comes from the V8 through the slash-cut side exhausts is like nothing you have ever heard or will be likely to hear again and the driving experience is described as intoxicating. This is a truly unique, must-have supercar for any true collector to own and indeed, one that will only rise in value. The service schedule is recorded as follows on this example; 1st September 2009 - 1,592 miles 29th June 2010 - 3,319 miles 28th July 2011 - 5,519 miles 3rd May 2012 - 5,902 miles 12th June 2013 - 6,932 28th August 2015 - 7,571 miles 21st October 2017 - 7,671 miles May 2019 - 7,690 miles (estimated)

    • Model3000 Mk. III BJ8 Phase II
    • FE Cat descThe Austin Healey 3000 Mk. III was launched in October 1963 and remained in production until the end of 1967 when production of Austin Healeys ceased. Classified as the BJ8, the new model was the most powerful and luxurious of the big Healeys with a walnut veneer dash, wind-up windows and a 150bhp engine. Improvements to the engine included a revised camshaft, valve springs and twin SU 2" HD8 carburettors together with a redesigned exhaust system and servo-assisted brakes. In May 1964, the Phase II version was introduced that gave better ground clearance at the rear by a modified chassis. This delightfully handsome Austin Healey was repatriated from North America during 1990, and then sat for many years before being restored and subsequently registered in October 2015. The exacting restoration in the UK took in the region of five years to complete. The aim was to make this one of the finest examples. Particular attention was paid to the panel gaps and finish of the coachwork. The fabulous two-tone blue and cream paintwork, that cost £16,000, is in excellent order and is complemented by a new set of chrome wire wheels that are shod with Pirelli Cinturato tyres. The exterior chromework was restored at a cost of £5,000 whilst on the inside, the standard continues. The interior, with its light blue leather, new carpets and excellent walnut wood dashboard and trimmings, does not disappoint; it is an interior that certainly invites you in. New weather equipment includes the hood, hood bag and tonneau cover. Mechanically, this Healey has been extensively overhauled and converted to righthand drive. The engine has been stripped, overhauled, ported and polished with exhaust gases extracted via a stainless steel exhaust. An electronic ignition system has been fitted for reliability. The detailed engine bay has been finished to as much of the original specification as possible including the correct wiring loom. The gearbox has also been rebuilt and the overdrive unit fitted by Rawles Motor Sport. The suspension has not been neglected, whilst the rest of the undersides has been finished as per the rest of this Healey and protected and treated. A large file includes the US Certificate of Title, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate of the factory record that confirms the date of manufacture as 10th to 12th June 1964, invoices, old MoT test certificates and a UK V5C registration document. Used sparingly since the completion of the restoration, this fine Austin Healey is ready to use and enjoy immediately.

    • ModelVantage
    • FE Cat descAll 70 of these fantastic cars were ‘Vantage-engined’ and to the highest state of tune - ‘SVC’. They represent a special place in Aston Martin history as they were the last six cylinder cars with a heritage stemming from the greatest era of the firm’s racing history and the last to be fitted with wire wheels. They also marked a return to the traditionally shaped front that was first introduced in the DB3S in the early ‘fifties, continued throughout the ‘DB’ series of 4, 5, and 6 and was later adopted for all Aston Martins from the current decade – the DB9, the Vanquish, the V8 Vantage, and the DBS. The model benefitted from many improvements developed and implemented throughout the five years of DBS production, including many mechanical and cosmetic changes. Of most significance and, like the last fifty examples of the DBS, the car used the same later ‘dog leg’ ZF five speed gearbox as used in the DBSV8. It is notable that, though the V8-engined model with the same body style was introduced in 1970, demand for the six cylinder AM Vantage continued through 1973 until the factory no longer offered the alternative. Though the V8-engined cars are very fine in their own right, this affection and appreciation for the six cylinder cars has had a direct bearing on demand and they now command a premium in the market significantly higher than their V8 counterpart.

    • ModelB GTV8
    • FE Cat descThe MGB was first introduced in May 1962 as a direct replacement for the MGA and has become a firm favourite with British motoring enthusiasts. October 1965 saw the introduction of the GT based on the already popular roadster. Designed by none other than Pininfarina, the new GT sported a hatchback giving useful access to the rear luggage space and a rear bench seat that enabled the car to be called a 2+2. It was Ken Costello who saw the possibility of fitting the larger aluminium 328cc, Rover engine having been sure that the handling and braking could be made to match the much improved performance, not that it needed significant changes as the V8 weighed in at around 40lbs lighter than the four cylinder iron blocked engine it replaced. This genuine factory built MGB GTV8 was first registered in September of 1973, it has recently undergone a complete nut and bolt rotisserie restoration to a very pleasing standard. Offered in Damask Red with black trim, this restoration included a full engine rebuild and is fully documented with images and invoices. Originally purchased by our vendor in 2014 from an MG owners club member, the restoration was intended to keep the car original and thus as many parts as possible were restored and reused with only subtle changes such as larger fans for cooling and leather seats. Since the comprehensive restoration to this fabulous motorcar, only 600 miles have been covered. In the history file accompanying the car are restoration documentation and history from 1979 until 2014 including service records and a lovely provenance to complement this great example.

    • ModelDB5
    • FE Cat descTo the casual observer, the 1963 DB5 is virtually indistinguishable from a late model DB4 Vantage; the DB5 is essentially a four litre version of the DB4. Initially fitted with the four speed David Brown gearbox, the vast majority of cars received the superior five speed gearbox either as an option or later as standard fitting. So why is the DB5 so often thought of as the quintessential Aston Martin? Without doubt this is due to a Silver Birch example featuring in the 1964 James Bond film, Goldfinger, complete with special modifications and hidden weaponry. With 007 behind the wheel of the sensational sports GT, demand outstripped supply - the factory just couldn't capitalise fast enough on the marketing success of the DB5. Even today, DB5's are highly regarded and change hands for sums significantly greater than almost anything else in the range. Its production, however, was fairly short-lived, ending in September 1965 after 1,021 had been manufactured. This superb Aston Martin DB5 is finished in Silver Birch with black leather interior. Having had only three former keepers, this example has been well cared for by the highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic vendor. Some sympathetic upgrades have been added to enhance the car, this includes the fitment of power steering, satellite navigation and bluetooth, 6J chrome wire wheels with 205/70VR15 tyres. Originally registered on 6th February 1964, this DB5 is a matching numbers example and presents in very good order throughout. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate together with a good history folder the DB5 is still, quite rightly, considered one of the most stunning designs ever penned. This quintessentially British sportscar is a highly useable example.

    • ModelA Roadster
    • FE Cat descWhen the MGA arrived in 1955, it must have come as quite a shock to MG purists who had become accustomed to the pre-war look of the company's sports cars. It was a complete departure in styling and its beautiful streamlined body was right up to the minute in terms of appearance. It was powered by a new engine; MG had decided that the old XPAG unit had had its day and so introduced a much more modern B-series engine that had made its debut in the recently announced Magnette saloon. The 'A' was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1955. Only 5,869 cars were sold on the home market, giving the MGA the highest export percentage of any British car and was replaced by the MGB in May 1962. Originally supplied to the U.S. and repatriated to the UK in 2016, this car underwent a major restoration immediately upon its return. The bodywork was repaired or refabricated where necessary and painted in black which has an excellent finish. The interior has been trimmed in contrasting burgundy resulting in a superb colour combination. The 1600cc engine has been fully rebuilt and converted to run on unleaded fuel, a five speed gearbox has been fitted for comfortable motoring on long journeys. Photographic evidence of the rebuild is in the history file which, by any standards, is significant with all of the invoices available confirming the restoration. Now in righthand drive format, this superb MGA is supplied with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until April 2020. An excellent example of a great British sportscar of the 60s.

    • ModelZ3M Coupé
    • FE Cat descWhen the director of design at BMW first saw the coupé version of the Z3, there was a long silence, not least because this was 'mocked-up' by a handful of dedicated designers during evenings and weekends. Like the GT6 and MGBGT, two acknowledged influences, this wasn't just a convertible with a hardtop. The entire chassis was redesigned, the roof lengthened, more power added and finer under the skin details. The M Coupé was voted by Top Gear magazine as one of 'the 149 coolest cars ever'. Manufactured for a retail customer in December 1998, supplied to Barons of Heathrow and specified with Estoril Napper leather, non smoker pack, front side airbags, Grad Tint windscreen and the BMW business CD RDS system, this Z3M Coupé was then registered to its first owner on 8th January 1999. Presented in what, many believe, is the most desirable colour combination of Estoril Blue with black leather and blue inserts, this impressive S50 Z3M Coupé has covered 73,000 miles from new. Our vendor has owned the car since 2015, he purchased this after a tireless search for an enthusiast owned example which was eventually found in the Netherlands sitting alongside countless other collectible and rare BMWs. Unfortunately, in 2001 the car was stolen and subsequently recovered by the police, consequently the car was placed as a category D insurance claim. Therefore our vendor has had the car condition inspected by AutoLign to ensure any repair works carried out were to a high standard, he was pleased to find they were and as such the car is now listed as 'condition inspected' and no longer as a category D car. The details of this can be found in the history file, which the vendor describes as a very complete history file, along with a folder full of invoices and receipts for work completed on the car. The car has a current MoT test certificate valid until September 2019 which importantly was obtained with no advisories. This BMW is presented in very good order throughout and given the low mileage is certainly a sought-after car. This could prove to be a fantastic purchase for any BMW Z3M fan with values for these coupés ever increasing.

    • FE Cat descThe Lagonda LG6 was produced from 1937 to 1940 and was announced at the 1937 London Motor Show. The LG6 chassis was based on the V12 model, lengthened by 3.5" to cater for the longer engine fitted. The Meadows engined M45 introduced in 1934 with the technical expertise of W.O Bentley, became progressively more refined with the introduction of synchromesh gears, central chassis lubrication and flexible engine mounts. The LG6 of 1937, produced alongside the sensational V12 cars, featured a cross-braced chassis with independent front suspension, hydraulic shock absorbers and Lockheed hydraulic front wheel brakes.

    • Model280 SE Coupé
    • FE Cat descIn the summer of 1965, Mercedes-Benz launched its new replacements for both W111 and W112 saloons, the W108 and W109 respectively. In a bizarre twist of fate, this car's design was based on the W111 coupé but widened and squared off as the fintail fashion was quickly fading by the mid 1960s. However, both W111 and W112 models were modernised; the 220 SE was superseded by the 250 SE which featured the new 2,496cc engine, producing 150bhp at 5500rpm, giving it a significant improvement in top speed. Visibly, the changes only affected the new 14" rims with new wheel trims; this was to accommodate the larger disc brakes and the new rear axle. In November 1967, the 250 SE was superseded by the new 280 SE. Inside, the car received wood veneer on the dashboard and other minor changes. A final model was added in August 1969, the 280 SE, 3.5 litre. It was fitted with the brand-new M116, 3,499cc, V8 engine with 200bhp at 5,800rpm, a top speed of 130mph and a 0-100 at 9.5 seconds. To accommodate the large engine, the car's front grille was widened and front bumpers were modified.

Standing for 'Coupe Sport Leicht', the BMW 3.0 CSL was indeed light - having an aluminium bonnet, boot and doors combined with a reduced trim saving a valuable 300lbs in excess weight. With power as standard from the 3.0 straight six giving 206 bhp and a strong aero package (front chin spoiler and rear boot lid lip spoiler), the 1,039 CSLs produced by BMW are now highly collectable and sought after, particularly rare original righthand drive factory produced cars, such as this particular car.

    • ModelAtlantic Convertible
    • FE Cat descThe Atlantic was one of the first post-war cars engineered from scratch by Austin, almost certainly influenced by a 1946 Pininfarina-bodied Alfa Romeo cabriolet. The Atlantic was designed specifically to appeal to North American tastes, featuring up-to-the-minute detailing and the then unheard of luxury of hydraulically powered windows. As its final party trick, the centre section of the three piece, wrap around, rear window, could be lowered into the boot, for added ventilation by a remote winder above the front windscreen. Few people in the car's native Britain would have ever seen anything like the futuristically-styled Atlantic before and certainly not from Austin. This righthand drive Austin is finished in Old English White with red leather interior. Owned by the same family for 30 years, this Atlantic convertible has benefitted from a full restoration including the fitment of a new hood. We are advised the 2660cc engine runs well and offers a brisk performance. Supplied with a buff logbook, handbooks and a collection of receipts, these Austins with their retro styling are a great way to enjoy the summer months ahead.

    • FE Cat descMaybach Motorenbau was a manufacturer founded in 1909 by Wilhelm Maybach and his son. In 1960, Maybach was acquired by Daimler-Benz and still remains as a luxury brand of Mercedes-Benz. Daimler produced an ultra-luxury edition of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class under the Maybach brand thus creating an even more magnificent vehicle and offering unrivalled luxury and specification. To promote the new Maybach line, Mercedes-Benz engaged figures such as Maybach heir, Ulrich Schmid-Maybach together with golfer Nick Faldo to serve as brand ambassadors. When commissioning a vehicle, Maybach would, upon request, offer a huge array of standard and non-standard specification; as long as it was safe, practical and ethical, it could be supplied. The last Maybach vehicle was manufactured in December 2012 although Mercedes-Benz have recently re-instated the name on the high end S-Class which is known as a Mercedes Maybach.

    • ModelAzure
    • FE Cat descThe Bentley Azure was launched in 1995, based on the platform of the Continental R Coupé which had been launched in 1991. The Azure intended to both convey a sense of presence and allow for comfortable seating of four adult passengers. Power came from the company's Stalwart 6.75 litre, V8 featuring a single intercooled turbocharger producing in the region of 380bhp. The gearbox was a General Motors sourced four-speed automatic unit with the Azure capable of 0 to 60mph in an impressive 6.1 seconds. Owing to the limited space at Bentley's Crewe factory, the Azure was designed and manufactured by Pininfarina, significantly adding to the vehicle's production cost. From 1999, the Azure was also available in 'Mulliner Trim' which added special bespoke trim and additional equipment, thus allowing the buyer the option for further customisation during the build process. Pricing varied as equipment could be significantly different from one to the next depending on personal preferences. This example of the opulent Azure was first registered to California and has been with our vendor in Florida for many years. The silver coachwork is in fabulous order as is the Stone Grey interior; wood and leather are offered in abundance confirming this to be a car from one of the world's premium marques. This example was recently repatriated to the UK. Supplied for our vendor and maintained, we are informed, by Vantage Motorworks of North Miami, Florida, this example is in lovely condition and having been in such a dry climate, naturally very well preserved. This car is offered with the US title and UK V5C registration document coupled with a current MoT test certificate valid until September 2019. The Bentley Azure is a grand tourer offering enormous style and luxury, whether you are going to the shops or travelling to the Côte d’Azur, this Bentley Azure is just about the perfect vehicle.

    • ModelSilver Cloud III by James Young
    • FE Cat descLaunched in 1962, the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III and its Bentley S3 equivalent employed the 6.2 litre aluminium-alloy, V8 engine first introduced in the Silver Cloud II although with larger carburettors, new distributor and raised compression ratio. It also came with a four-speed GM derived automatic gearbox as standard equipment. Most obvious among many changes from the preceding models were the adoption of four headlamp lighting, the absence of sidelights from the wing tops and a slightly lower radiator shell. Inside there was improved accommodation with separate front seats and increased room for rear passengers. Notable as the last mainstream Rolls-Royce to employ a separate chassis, the Silver Cloud III remained in production until superseded by the unitary-construction Silver Shadow in late 1965. Originally supplied by Jack Barclay and registered on 28th May 1964, this Rolls-Royce is in superb order having just benefitted from £30,000 of recent expenditure. The coachbuilder for this Rolls-Royce was James Young Ltd and subsequently has magnificent lines and is finished in Regal Red with a black interior. The seats of this delightful example are akin to your favourite armchair and the walnut wooden dashboard has a splendid highly polished finish. This is a Silver Cloud III of the highest quality with everything working as it should including the cigarette lighters and all of the interior lights. Supplied with a V5C registration document, a copy of the original build sheets and a comprehensive history folder, the quality of this Rolls-Royce is undisputed.

    • FE Cat descDUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION The Volkswagen Type 2 was introduced in 1950 as a multi-variant utility vehicle, known as the Transporter, Kombi or Microbus (depending on body type), and was devised as an evolution of the Volkswagen Type 1, the original Beetle. The first generation of these versatile vehicles (named the T1) was produced with distinctive split-screens from 1950 until 1967. Only two models were originally offered, the Kombi and the Commercial, the Microbus was added in May 1950, and was joined by the Deluxe Microbus in June 1951. The Deluxe Microbus (known as the ‘Sunroof Deluxe' in America) was the most luxurious version of the Volkswagen Transporter T1. The Deluxe model featured eight rear side windows and two rear corner windows, making it the '15-window' but was not available in Europe. Meanwhile, the European-market Deluxe Microbus, with its additional eight small skylight windows is, accordingly, the '23-window'. From the 1964 model year with its wider rear door, the rear corner windows were discontinued, making the latter two, the 13-window and 21-window respectively. The 23 and later 21 window variants each carry the famous nickname 'Samba' and are particularly revered. Manufactured on 27th March 1958 and delivered to New Zealand, this Volkswagen was imported into the UK in 2016. The condition of this Kombi can only be described as exceptional and being in righthand drive format is an ideal fun vehicle to take to the beach. We are advised the 1600cc engine runs well, these vehicles are simple in their make-up and are easy to maintain for a competent home mechanic. Supplied with a V5C registration document this Volkswagen is finished in the striking colour combination of orange and white two-tone coachwork with grey interior.

    • ModelC Roadster
    • FE Cat descManufactured between 1967 and August 1969, the MGC was intended as a replacement for the Austin Healey 3000. The engines produced 145bhp and were fitted with twin SU carburettors. The bodyshell was revised around the engine bay and the floorpan, but externally the only differences between the MGB and the MGC were a distinctive bonnet bulge to accommodate the relocated radiator and a discrete teardrop to allow clearances for the carburettors. This sporting version of Abingdons MG presents well in dark blue with a newly re-trimmed black leather interior and new, mohair trimmed soft top cover. Having undergone a full nut and bolt restoration in the 90’s, this MGC roadster has clearly continued to have a lot of expenditure lavished upon it. More recent works include new wire wheels, Yokohama tyres, electronic power steering, and a five speed gearbox conversion. The huge file of invoices also details the fitting of a stainless exhaust, a battery cut-off switch, an electronic ignition system, adjustable shockers and a new radiator. Included in the file is a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate. Offered to auction with a V5C registration certificate, this MoT exempt sports car is described by the vendor as tremendous fun and is ready to be enjoyed immediately.

    • ModelMerak SS
    • FE Cat descWe are delighted to offer this very fine example of the Maserati Merak SS, a model that was essentially a lighter version of the Maserati Bora. First seen in 1972 with the SS introduced in 1976, the Merak was, and still is a striking motorcar today. The SS engine produced 15% more power over the standard Merak, raising horsepower to 220hp and with the weight of the SS being reduced by 152kg to 1,400kg, resulted in a top speed of 152mph. Aesthetically, the Merak differed from the otherwise very similar Bora; mainly in sporting an open flying buttresses instead of the Bora's fully glassed rear and offered a second row of seats, suitable for children or small adults. This genuine SS is one of the last built and has recently undergone an extensive restoration. Stripped to a bare shell, this Maserati has been painstakingly and sympathetically restored. The coachwork has been finished to a high standard in the Maserati colour of Rosso Rubino and is nicely complemented by the Campagnolo alloy wheels shod with new Avon tyres. This Merak’s engine, a newly designed quad-cam three litre V6 for Maserati at the time, has been rebuilt and includes new pistons and timing chains. Importantly, the rebuild included the timing chain modification that reduces wear upon the primary chain, a common weakness on unmodified engines. The suspension and braking systems have not been neglected during this restoration, the suspension has been powder coated and new wheel bearings fitted. The four shock absorbers were overhauled by Candini, the renowned Maserati specialists in Modena, Italy. Works to the cooling system included a re-cored radiator. The interior has generally been left as it was when the car left the factory, due to the low mileage, the black leather seats are nicely patinated, only the carpets were replaced. The front luggage compartment has been beautifully finished with diamond stitching. A good history file accompanies this Merak and includes, invoices, old MoT test certificates, an owner’s handbook by the Maserati Club and a UK V5C registration document. We are also advised that this Maserati will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate. This must be one of the finest examples of the Maserati Merak SS on offer today. All that is left is for a lucky new owner to take advantage of the recent restoration and enjoy its performance, handling and flair.

    • ModelSilver Seraph
    • FE Cat descThe Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph was first unveiled on 3rd March, 1998 at the Geneva Motor Show. It replaced the Silver Spur which ended production in 1997. All Seraphs were hand-built at the Rolls-Royce factory in Crewe, England, which stopped making Rolls-Royce models in 2002 but continued with Bentley. The car had a base price of £155,175 in the UK and was powered by a 5.4 litre aluminium alloy BMW V12 engine, making it the first twelve-cylinder Rolls-Royce since the 1939 Phantom III. Standard electronics included digital engine management, adaptive ride control and anti-lock brakes. Aside from the radiator grille, badges and wheels, the Rolls-Royce was externally identical to the contemporary Bentley Arnage, sharing both its platform and bodyshell. Inside, the Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph and the Bentley Arnage were similar but quite distinct from one another. In the Seraph, the gear selector was column-mounted and the gauges followed a traditional Rolls-Royce layout (for example, there was no tachometer). In both cars, the seats and dashboard were upholstered in Connolly leather, with dashboard trim and folding picnic trays for rear passengers and glossy burr walnut veneer. The last owner of this lovely 1999 Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph was Lady Jean Loveridge, who purchased the car in 2007. Her husband was John Warren Loveridge, famous politician, businessman, sculptor, painter and poet. The car is finished in Fountain Blue with parchment leather seats piped in blue, blue leather dash top and steering wheel. This Silver Seraph has a full service history contained in three service books, the last service was carried out by the Chelsea Workshop in September 2018, Chelsea Workshop also replaced the air conditioning compressor, rear air springs and fitted a new windscreen. The speedo head was replaced when the car had covered about 30,000 miles which indicates that the car has covered just over 100,000 miles in total. With its lovely colour and interior combination, this Rolls-Royce is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in May 2020 and the complete handbook pack which contains the three service record books. This Silver Seraph represents everything that gave Rolls-Royce its worldwide reputation for luxury and mechanical excellence.

    • ModelSeven Roadsport
    • FE Cat descCaterham Cars is a manufacturer of specialist lightweight sports cars and is a direct evolution of the Series III Lotus Seven designed by Colin Chapman and originally launched in 1973. Caterham had been a major Lotus Seven dealer during the 1960's and its founder, Graham Nearn, purchased the rights to continue manufacture of the Seven design after Lotus announced its intention to discontinue the model. The Lotus/Caterham Seven is widely regarded by car enthusiasts and the media as one of the most precise handling sports cars ever, with 2007 marking the 50th year of continuous production. As with its Lotus Seven predecessor, Caterhams are constructed of aluminium sheet attached to a tubular steel chassis and all are front engined with rear-wheel drive and two seats. Their extremely high performance is achieved through being lightweight and well balanced rather than from particularly powerful engines although in recent years, they have become quite formidable when mated to highly tuned powerplants. This particular example is presented in blue with a yellow stripe from the front of the bonnet to the windscreen and has a black interior. Its sports seats are fitted with three point harness seat belts, providing maximum safety and the car has a FIA roll bar which is colour coded to match the bodywork. We are informed that the car has just had a cambelt service, carried out in February/March of this year, and it has also had an oil and filter change. The car has had a new battery fitted and a brake fluid change. The power is provided by a 1600cc Rover K Series engine pushing out approximately 125bhp, according to the owner. The car sits on a set of Minilites and comes with a Caterham half hood which is colour coded, even with a matching yellow stripe and the all important side screens. Provided with the car are some old MoT test certificates, a service book with 12 stamps, a quick release steering wheel and UK V5C registration document. These British sports cars are exhilarating to drive and will test any accomplished driver but best to try it out on a track day to fully enjoy its potential, legally!

    • ModelMini Cooper Sport
    • FE Cat descThe Mini was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960’s and its space-saving front-wheel drive layout allowing 80% of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage, influenced a generation of car makers. The Mini Cooper Sport had a front-mounted radiator, driver's airbag, taller final drive ratio and was only produced from March to October 2000. It could be distinguished from earlier 'Sport Pack' equipped Coopers by its Platinum roof and bonnet stripes. The model's widened wheel arches housed 13 x 6 alloy wheels while inside it featured an alloy dashboard as well as alloy window winders, door pulls and door handles. Supplied by Dutton-Forshaw in Aylesbury and originally registered on 8th September 2000, this Mini has only had two owners from new. A comprehensive service history accompanies this Cooper Sport, the most recent work was carried out on 19th April 2019 when she had new brake shoes and wheel cylinders fitted prior to a fresh MoT test certificate being issued. She was used regularly until 2013 and has been professionally stored in the interim period. The distinctive blue with a silver roof is in good order as is the black and grey interior. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with the original service book and literature pack, this 1275cc Rover Mini Cooper Sport is a good example of an ever increasingly popular model, particularly when they are as good as this.

    • ModelCorniche 1A Convertible
    • FE Cat descThe origins of the Corniche came from the continuation of the 1966 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow fixedhead coupé and 1967 drophead coupé, constructed by the famed coachbuilder Mulliner Park Ward in London. The car was named after the stunning roads along the Côte d'Azur in France and was an elegant two-door design available with either a coupé or convertible body. The cars were hand built in the best traditions of British coachbuilding, using only materials of the finest quality, including Wilton carpeting, Connolly hides and burr walnut veneers. This painstaking attention to detail resulted in a price some 50% higher than the standard Silver Shadow. The well tried aluminium V8 engine was adopted, displacing 6750cc, driving through a Turbo Hydramatic 400 three speed automatic gearbox. For the Corniche model, power output was enhanced by about 10%, providing greater torque and giving the car a top speed in the order of 118mph with sports car beating acceleration to match. 1976 was the year of change from Corniche 1 to the rubber bumper shod Corniche II; during this period a few cars, unofficially known as the 1A, retained the chrome bumpers of the early cars but had the Corniche II rack and pinion steering, twin exhaust and the later interior. Supplied new by Lex Mead of Maidenhead, Berkshire to Mr Mark C Spedding, who was chairman of Torquay United FC in the 1960’s. This rare Rolls-Royce Corniche 1A, one of only 48 righthand drive convertibles built changed ownership a number of times until in 2014 the car was purchased by Mr David Siegal who over the next four years spent over £20,000 with Rolls-Royce specialists N Sandell in Isleworth, Middlesex on recommissioning, work on the brakes and servicing. Last year, with the current owner, this Corniche was repainted in the original colour of Silver Mink, the walnut veneered woodwork re-polished and the original blue leather interior lightly connolized. This lovely Corniche 1A convertible is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in May 2020, copies of the chassis cards from the RREC, a full tonneau cover, matching blue hood bag and a file containing the invoices from N Sandell, list of previous owners, MoT history, copies of all the registration documents and spare key. This is an opportunity to buy one of the rarest and most desirable Corniche’s built having the classic looks of the early chrome bumper models with the better, later mechanics of the Corniche II.

    • Model356B T6 Convertible by Reutter
    • FE Cat descOne of the most recognisable and pretty sportscars of all-time, the 356 was the work of Ferry Porsche who had been inspired by the FIAT-based Cisitalias of Piero Dusio. The formula was simple, a platform with an eminently tuneable engine to the rear and completely adaptable to weekend motorsport should the mood take you. So much so, that a works car finished first in class at Le Mans back in the day. This is the sort of pedigree that no amount of advertising can buy. Unsurprisingly, the 356B followed the A, with a 1,600cc engine, a more modern wraparound windscreen and 15"-diameter wheels. The 356B represented significant advances in driveability and comfort over earlier 356 models and is a pleasingly quick way to enjoy the traditional Porsche values of quality, reliability and mechanical robustness. And the convertible version is even better. Fully restored in South Africa before being imported to the UK, this immaculate example has been finished in a metallic ice blue with a matching blue interior. It was stripped to bare metal, painted and reassembled. The interior is as new and all mechanics have been stripped down, repaired or replaced when necessary. The final result is a 356 with the better uprated ‘B’ bodyshell, the more powerful T6, 1600cc engine and, of course, the convertible option, the only way to properly enjoy the countryside. Needless to say, the oft-missed roof mechanism has been restored together with an all new softtop and tonneau cover. In summary, a classic Porsche 356B T6 convertible prepared from bumper to bumper for the next generation of collectors or enthusiasts to enjoy.

    • ModelIsetta 300
    • FE Cat descThe Isetta is an Italian-designed microcar built under licence in a number of different countries including Germany and the United Kingdom. Produced in the post war years, at a time when cheap, short distance transportation was most needed, it became one of the most successful and influential city cars ever created. Because of its egg shape and bubble-like windows, it became known as a 'bubble car', a name then later given to other similar vehicles. The Isetta was, in 1955, the world's first mass-produced car and was the top-selling single-cylinder car in the world with a total of 161,728 units sold. BMW made the Isetta its own, redesigning most of the car so much so that none of the parts between a BMW Isetta Moto Coupé and an IsoIsetta could be interchangeable. While it retained the 'Bubble Window' styling, the BMW version differed from the Italian model in that the headlamps were fixed separately to the sides of the bodywork and it carried the BMW badge below the windscreen. This delightful righthand drive, three-wheel bubble car has been subject to a full cosmetic and mechanical restoration. A 1959 Brighton-built example, this car has been used for promoting the vendors business and he spared no expense in its restoration. The 298cc engine and running gear were fully refurbished and the body repaired and repainted by a professional bodyshop with the interior being re-trimmed in an attractive grey and white. The vendor describes the car as having an excellent engine, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate and bills from the restoration in the history file, the Isetta is a cult car that is no doubt king of the bubble cars.

    • Model280 SL Pagoda
    • FE Cat descThe final incarnation of this simply beautiful grand tourer introduced in 1967 belied a powerful engine beneath its well-made and elegant exterior. Comfort and quality were the watch words of Mercedes-Benz for all their range and there were certainly no short-cuts when it came to the SL. The 2.8 litre, six cylinder produced an impressive 180bhp, 20hp more than the preceding 250SL, thus allowing a top speed of 200km/h and a shorter time to achieve it. The 280 SL's essential user friendliness broadened its appeal beyond the traditional sports car-enthusiast market and many celebrities and film stars owned them. ​Acquired by its current owner in 2012, a collector of note based in Sussex, the body was immediately stripped of its ancillaries and the remaining shell taken back to bare metal. New wings were required and fitted as well as a new floorpan and sills. The panel gaps are excellent. It was then repainted to a very high standard in Anthracite Grey with the interior an appropriately contrasting Marlboro Red. The carpets were supplied by ‘d:class automotive’, specialists in their field as well as a double duck soft top in black, I don’t think there is a classic car they haven’t trimmed. The engine was rebuilt by Crewe Engines with the gearbox uprated to a Getrag five speed unit, more in keeping with today’s modern motoring conditions. The brakes were renewed, the callipers refurbished and electroplated and new discs and pads were fitted all round. The suspension now benefits from Bilstein shock absorbers and springs naturally assisted by modern Michelin tyres on each corner. Reassuringly, there is a significantly comprehensive history file to accompany this car including its last service in 2018 by Mercedes-Benz specialist, SS Motors. Extremely well restored and in, arguably, the best colour combination, this top-specification SL is very good value indeed.

    • Model100/6 BN4
    • FE Cat descThe result of a joint venture, as its name suggests, the Austin Healey was built at Longbridge before moving to the BMC works at Abingdon. It evolved from the timeless 100/4 to accept a bigger six cylinder engine followed by the larger still three litre unit, or ‘3000’. All three incarnations looked superb and drove equally hence their regular use within motorsport. An aluminium model was also produced in very limited numbers and, as result, coveted. The 100/6 could comfortably exceed 100mph, a big deal back then especially at a time when a Ford Popular would struggle to reach 70mph. Zerwick Automotive Engineers are respected specialist in restoration based in Knysna, South Africa. They rebuild, to impeccable standards, a range of classics and ship world-wide. It is this father and son partnership, with over 71 years of experience between them, that we are lucky enough to impart, that are responsible for restoring this example. Initially all paint was removed including box sections and repainted with a rust preventative coating before top coats applied. The suspension and rear axle was removed, cleaned and rebuilt; the engine was refitted with new gaskets and seals with the cylinder head overhauled. The interior is completely new throughout including boot liner and all chrome re-chromed. Wiring was repaired with the starter and generator overhauled. A Certificate of Valuation can be found in the history file detailing it to be ‘restored to absolute new factory specifications’ with an estimated value in 2015 of 620,000 Rand (£32,000). Some non-Healey parts were fitted during the restoration although this was rectified when it arrived in the UK by Austin Healey specialists, Orchard Restorations. Presented here in classic blue over white with, unusually, a hardtop to match, this great driver’s car is competitively priced and runs, as you would expect, extremely well indeed.

    • ModelDB6 Volante
    • FE Cat descThe DB6 was launched at the London Motor Show in 1965 following on from the highly successful DB5 immortalised by the 1964 James Bond film 'Goldfinger'. The front end of the DB6 was visually similar to the DB5 but closer inspection revealed quite a different car. The wheelbase was lengthened allowing additional passenger space in the rear along with a raised roof line. The profile of the rear quarter lights echoed those of the DB4GT Zagato, a styling theme that continued through to the DBS and V8 models until production finished in 1990. Both front and rear bumpers were split into two pieces and the rear of the car was re-styled with a Kamm tail which helped reduce aerodynamic drag and gave the car more stability at speed. The engine remained the same as the Tadek Marek-designed DB5 unit, a 3,995cc twin overhead cam, straight six with triple SU carburettors producing a claimed 282bhp. 'If you want a truly British driver's car, the ultimate development of a continuous line of thoroughbreds from the Vintage era to the present day, there is nothing in quite the same field as the Aston.' - Motor Magazine on the Aston Martin DB6, 26th November 1966.

    • Model911/997 Carrera 4S Cabriolet
    • FE Cat descThe Porsche 996 was the first water-cooled example and ushered in a new era for the 911. The 997 had the performance and luxury to create what Porsche deemed as the 'ultimate sports car'. Technically similar to its predecessor, however more refined, the 997 became the most commercially successful 911 of all time and, for the first time in Porsche history, the development of the cabriolet version of the 997 led the design and engineering effort with the coupé following. Porsche applied the logic that if you start with the more difficult challenges of the cabriolet, the coupé version would simply be more rigid. Despite the additional weight, the cabriolet versions nearly attain the same performance figures as their coupé counterparts. Interestingly Jeremy Clarkson, a known detractor of Porsche cars, noted that the 997 will “make love to your fingertips and stir your soul.” This wonderful Porsche 911 (997) Carrera 4S Cabriolet is presented in Slate Grey metallic paint with black full leather interior. This example benefits, not only from the electric cabriolet folding roof, but also from the sought after manual six speed gearbox, a higher performance 3.8 flat six engine and a practical four wheel drive system that was designed to change the driving behaviour of the Carrera, making it more stable and useable in real world conditions. This car was specified from the factory with 19” 'Sport Design' wheels, desirable Sports Chrono pack, Bose sound system and navigation system. Supplied with a comprehensive provenance and history portfolio, including the original driver’s manual, stamped maintenance book with the last service in August 2018 at 67,172 miles and black leather Porsche wallet. The car will also come with a fresh MoT test certificate and many of the previous owner’s invoices, receipts and previous MoT test certificates. The 997 Porsche in C4S guise is perhaps all the sports car one would ever need, combining performance and reliability with the comfort and drop top motoring. This is a fabulous example sure to be popular with enthusiasts and attract significant attention.

    • Model420 SL Roadster
    • FE Cat descThese fabulous and popular models were launched at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1985, the 420SL convertible retained its predecessor’s long-running Type 107 bodyshell virtually unchanged. The V8 engined newcomer supplanted the outgoing 380SL model and was produced alongside the outwardly similar 300SL ‘six’. Its power unit was an enlarged and improved version of the existing 3.8 litre overhead cam Type M116 V8. The running gear followed Mercedes-Benz’s established pattern, comprising of independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, while a new five-speed manual gearbox was offered alongside the existing four-speed automatic transmission. A mere 2,148 examples of this luxuriously equipped limited edition model were made between 1985 and 1989. This lovely rare example is presented in probably the most desirable and classical combination of Mercedes-Benz Blueblack metallic with grey leather interior. It comes with its factory hardtop, air conditioning, heated seats, electric windows and cruise control. This iconic classic has a good service history from its pre-delivery inspection report on 25th July 1988 through to 18th September 2017, the file also includes various invoices from 2000 to 2014 from Mercedes-Benz specialists showing works carried out during this time. These models are extremely difficult to find in this condition as most owners are reluctant to part with them. The car is presented with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in October 2019. Sensibly priced, this car offers style, luxury and performance all in great abundance.

    • ModelSP250
    • FE Cat descThe Daimler Dart was built in Coventry and launched at the 1959 New York Motor Show achieving great success in the North American market. Built with a fibreglass body, the power was provided by the 2.5 litre, Edward Turner designed V8 that soon became revered for the smoothness in its power delivery with 140bhp on tap. Independent double wishbone front suspension at the front and half elliptical springs at the rear with a live rear axle, kept the car on the road with stopping power supplied by hydraulic disc brakes on all four corners. The car was described as a 2+2 but the bench like rear seat offered very limited leg room unless the front seats were pushed fully forward. Daimler were soon forced to drop the Dart name when threatened with legal action by Chrysler's Dodge division, the car was then renamed the Daimler SP250. This SP250 was originally registered on 8th July 1960 and is finished in red with black interior. The car is in excellent order throughout, the interior appears to be original with a patina that is only acquired after many careful years of ownership. The 2548cc engine purred when we started the car, the Edward Turner V8 engine is a smooth and reliable unit producing an impressive 140bhp. This was featured in a 1988 edition of Mayfair magazine and was the front cover shot for Brian Long’s Daimler SP250 book. Fitted with a manual gearbox and supplied with a V5C registration document, this Daimler SP250 has a superb history folder. These sportscars have increased in popularity of late, 88 AXP with its interesting history, is surely the one to buy.

    • ModelArnage T Mulliner
    • FE Cat descThe Arnage T laid claim to the title of world's fastest saloon in 2002, propelling the driver in total luxury to a top speed of 170mph. Powered by a 6.75 litre twin turbo version of the Rolls-Royce, V8 engine, the nearly three ton car could accelerate from 0-60mph in just 5.5 seconds. The engine was treated to what Bentley described as 'the most thorough re-engineering of its life’ producing 451bhp and 645lb ft of torque. Other changes included the adoption of a 'drive-by-wire' throttle to go hand-in-glove with Bosch's Electronic Stability Program which replaced the Red Label's traction control, but what really gives this car its immense poise is a revised suspension that features 57% more roll stiffness than the Red Label. The car's basic structure is also 10% stiffer which means there are no creaks and squeaks of the sort that distinguished previous generations of Bentleys. Originally registered on 14th July 2004, this beautifully presented Arnage T is finished in the desirable colour combination of Silver Storm with Beluga hide interior trim and contrasting white diamond pattern stitching with embroidered Bentley motifs on the headrests. Having covered 79,951 miles, this car is reported to be in excellent condition, it has been maintained by Bentley main dealers since new with a full comprehensive stamped history in the original service booklet. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until July 2019 and the original stamped service books, this comprehensively optioned luxury saloon represents incredible value for money and a delightful, thrilling motoring experience.

    • ModelRivolta Lele Coupé
    • FE Cat descManufacturers of the Isetta Bubble Car, Iso, joined the ranks of supercar constructors in 1962 with the launch of the Giotto Bizzarrini-designed Rivolta Coupé at the Turin Motor Show. The Iso Rivolta Lele, named after Lele Rivolta, the wife of Piero Rivolta (son of Iso company founder Renzo) was manufactured between 1969 and 1974. Marchello Gandini, who also designed the Lamborghini Miura, Countach and Maserati Khamsin, penned the design. The Lele, being a 2+2 seater, filled the gap between the Grifo and the Fidia and shared its powertrain, a V8 engine with automatic gearbox, from General Motors. In 1972 the GM engine was replaced with a Ford automatic gearbox and Cleveland 5,762cc, V8 engine giving 325bhp.

    • ModelCorniche Fixedhead Coupé
    • FE Cat descRolls-Royce's adoption of unitary construction for its new Silver Shadow and T-Series Bentley necessitated the reorganisation of in-house coachbuilder H. J. Mulliner, Park Ward to meet the challenge of producing new designs on the Shadow floorpan. The variety of body styles offered was limited to just two; a two-door saloon or similar drophead coupé - the former arriving in March 1966 and the latter in September the following year. Some of the frontal panels were shared with the standard four-door saloon but otherwise the new bodyshells were unique featuring a distinctive dipping upper wing line with parallel crease and a revised, more rounded posterior. Despite the price being some 50% higher than the standard saloons, demand was strong right from the start and led to the introduction of the outwardly similar Corniche in 1971. Sales were greatly reduced during this period resulting in a Bentley being a much rarer car than the equivalent Rolls-Royce. A Bentley Corniche fixedhead coupé is a rare car by any standards and his is the very last two-door example built by the Crewe based manufacturer. Chassis number CBH50059 is finished in Graphite grey with black leather trim and presents in excellent condition. The coachwork is to a good standard and the black interior with ample leather has a delightful patina. The comfort, whether driving or being driven in such a vehicle, is exquisite. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a history folder this Bentley Corniche represents an opportunity to purchase a genuine piece of British motoring history.

    • ModelTF21 Saloon
    • FE Cat descThe three litre, series IV, TF21 was the last car produced by Alvis cars. An updated version of the 1963 TE21, it was announced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1966 and made until 1967. The body was a modified version of the TC108G styled by Graber of Switzerland but built by Mulliner Park Ward and was distinguished by having twin headlights mounted, one above the other, fixedhead coupé and convertible versions were available. The design was noted for its lack of bright side trim or creases moulded into the body parts and the windscreen was one-piece, curved and not too highly sloped. Externally, the car was identical to the TE21, but there were some changes to the suspension and, inside the car, the instruments were better organised. The 2993cc engine, first used in the 1950 TA21, had its power increased to 150bhp at 4750rpm by fitting triple SU carburettors giving the car a top speed of 120mph. A choice of automatic gearbox or a five-speed manual gearbox made by ZF was available. Originally delivered in its righthand drive format to Switzerland this Alvis TF21 was repatriated to the UK in 1973. Benefitting from the desirable manual gearbox as well as power steering, this has covered only 69,173km from new. These triple carburettor models are a delight to drive, the 2993cc six cylinder engine is a well tried and trusted unit with excellent reliability. A quintessentially British motor car of the period, this TF21 saloon is supplied with a V5C registration document and a history folder; finished in maroon with matching interior this handsome Alvis is largely original, the only thing missing is a bowler hat and an umbrella.

    • ModelDB7 Vantage Volante
    • FE Cat descIntroduced in 1993 to the public, the handsome new DB7 was styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen in its design. 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. At the Geneva Motor Show in 1999, Aston Martin introduced the six litre Cosworth-designed and built V12 engine, developing 420bhp and accelerating from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds with a top speed limited to 185mph. Ian Callum enlarged the grille, added fog lamps and restyled the valances to give the car a more aggressive look.
