    • ModelTwenty Goshawk II Sedanca Cabriolet by T H Gill & Company
    • FE Cat descDuring the First World War Rolls-Royce motor car production had been confined to military vehicles such as armoured cars, staff cars and ambulances. The company had devoted almost all its time in the production of aero engines and had earned as much of a reputation for building them as for building cars. The end of the war led to a considerable reduction in demand for the aero engines which meant that the Derby factory Rolls-Royce could start building the 40/50hp chassis (Silver Ghost) again. However, pre-war prosperity gave way to post-war austerity so it was obvious there would be a lack of demand for expensive luxury motor cars. To counter this reduction in sales Rolls-Royce thought there might be a demand for a smaller, less expensive chassis, as long as the quality and refinement did not suffer. The outcome was a new 20HP chassis which became known as ‘Goshawk’, following the aero engine practice of using names of birds of prey. The first Goshawk chassis was given the chassis number 1-G-I and started a long sequence of small horsepower, experimental chassis numbers finishing at 35-G-VIII. By the time the first Goshawk chassis was completed, sometime in 1920, it was already obsolete by a modified version which was on the drawing board, known as Goshawk II. 4-G-II is the oldest surviving, post-war, Rolls-Royce 20HP and the third Goshawk II chassis built. Fitted with an open tourer coachwork by Hooper & Co. (no. 5556), it was completed on 10th December 1921 and given the registration number CH 2892. This car was for the personal use of Henry Royce and in March 1922 it was driven by him and Mr Hives to Le Canadel, his house in France. At the end of May they brought the car back to England and West Wittering. Shortly after its return, problems developed in the cylinder head and the car was sent back to Mr Hives at the factory for extensive testing and modifications. After a period back at West Wittering, in February 1923 4-G-II was driven once again to Le Canadel for Mr. Royce’s winter season there. It was driven down by T. Maddocks who reported, amongst other things, that the spare wheel bolt had come out and was resting on the luggage grid. On 24th March 1923, Royce reported ‘the ignition is now going well on 4-G-II and I am very pleased with the car which I am now driving myself. The roads are so rough that it takes time to sort out what is a bad road and a good car’. A good performance was demonstrated when in April 1923 4-G-II climbed La Turbie in top gear with three occupants plus spare parts. On return to Derby the car underwent several further modifications including balloon tyres, a modified camshaft and a new exhaust system which increased the horsepower at 3000rpm from 47.1 to 51.4. Testing continued until May 1925 when the car went back to the factory to be made good for sale. It was fitted with a replacement engine number G 739 and the original body was replaced with a Sedanca Cabriolet body by T H Gill & Company of Paddington. 4-G-II was then sold as follows:

    • ModelSeries II 88’’ Soft Top
    • FE Cat descThe Land Rover was designed with brilliant simplicity for extraordinary ability and unrivalled strength and durability. In fact, six decades on, it is estimated that two-thirds of all these incredible vehicles are still at work, many of them in some of the most extreme conditions and inhospitable places on earth. The original 1948 Land Rover was ingeniously designed and engineered for extreme capability and strength. With robust construction and characteristics such as short front and rear overhangs, it drove off the production line ready to take on some of the world's toughest terrain. It was the product of continuous evolution and refinement throughout the 1950's and 1960's with improved stability and a tighter turning circle and was a period in which Land Rover took the lead in the emerging market for four-wheel drive vehicles. As a tough, reliable mobility platform, countless organisations came to depend on Land Rover vehicles to get personnel and equipment into the most challenging situations. Originally registered on 5th April 1967, this Land Rover has been restored by the knowledgeable vendor. A new galvanised chassis has been fitted and the axles have been rebuilt. The 2286cc diesel engine started immediately when requested and appeared to run well. The paintwork has been refreshed and four new tyres have been fitted. This soft-top 88” Land Rover is a very good example of a 52 year old robust and highly durable vehicle. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate, this Series II Landy offers great value for money for the person looking for that classic 4x4 experience.

    • ModelType Two 'Split-Screen' Kombi
    • FE Cat descThe Volkswagen Type Two 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 One, 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. This wonderful example was manufactured in 1960 and first registered in 1961. A restoration was completed in 2014, at a huge expense, resulting in the fabulous campervan we have here today. The body was completely resprayed in August 2018 with a new starter motor and driveshaft seal fitted and replaced in the same year. The cupboards are walnut and stained costing approximately £1,647 and a stainless steel sink with cold water feed tank was fitted. The rock & roll bed and front bench seat are upholstered and piped with white and red leather. A Blaupunkt Essen vintage radio with FM spindle fit and MP3 upgrade were fitted at a further cost of £423. A two ring burner stove with Calor Gas and a full internal electric pack finish off the works which have been carried out to a lovely standard and make this camper ready to be used this summer. A great classic for those wishing to be the coolest on the beach this year!

    • ModelB GT
    • FE Cat descThe MGB was launched in May 1962 to replace the MGA. Introduced as a four cylinder roadster, a coupé with 2+2 seating was added in 1965, with production continuing until October 1980. The MGB GT sported a ground-breaking design by Pininfarina with the launch of its sporty 'hatchback' style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the GT offered the utility of a hatchback whilst retaining the style and shape of a coupé. Acceleration of the GT was slightly slower than that of the Roadster due to its increased weight although top speed was improved by 5mph to 105mph due to better aerodynamics. This MGB GT has been rebuilt from the ground up by the vendor over a five year period, resulting in an MGB with exceptional performance. The specification is enormous and includes a new 4.0 litre V8 engine supplied by Turner Engineering including heavy duty iron flanged liners, a Real Steel high performance camshaft, Merlin big valve cylinder heads, John Earles crossover inlet manifold and carbon fibre air boxes. All of this is mounted to an LT five speed gearbox, with suspension and braking system suitably enhanced to ensure this unique MGB has the necessary handling and stopping power. Fuel injection has also been added, the mapping of which can be adjusted by the onboard tablet computer. Speedhut digital/analogue instrumentation has been fitted including a GPS speedometer and lap timing. Finished in the Ferrari colour of Rosso Corsa with a new black leather interior, this MGB GT is supplied with a V5C registration document and a comprehensive history folder confirming the vendor’s expenditure to be far in excess of the estimate. This car is exceptional and is not for the faint hearted.

    • ModelSpider 1600 Duetto (1750cc)
    • FE Cat descThe Alfa Romeo Spider 1600, to give it its official factory name, was manufactured during 1966 and 1967. The name 'Duetto' came about from a competition held by Alfa Romeo to distinguish the car from its Giulia 105 series stable mates, the Coupé and Berlina, and was accepted for its reference to the two-seat layout. The Duetto name only applied to the 1600 model, two later variants, with different engine sizes, were, the 1750 Velocé and 1300 Junior; all of the models are commonly known today as roundtail spiders. These advanced motor cars were fitted, as standard, with twin cam engines, five-speed gearboxes and disc brakes on all four wheels. We are delighted to offer this 1967 Alfa Romeo Spider Duetto. A letter on file from the Alfa Romeo Automobilismo Storico Centro Documentazione, states that this car corresponds to an Alfa Romeo Spider 1600 ‘Duetto’ righthand drive (105.05), manufactured on the 17th May 1967 and sold on the 18th May 1967 to Alfa Romeo UK, London and was delivered with red body and black skai interior. In June 1983, the car was exported to Eire and in 2011 the Duetto was purchased by a keen, Italian Alfa Romeo enthusiast, who re-imported it into the UK at that time. Although described during that period, as in good drivable condition, the car was delivered to a specialist body shop in Brescia, Italy, for a full bare metal restoration that took two years to complete. At some point, this Roundtail Spider has had a larger, period 1750cc engine fitted, many Alfisti would say, “it’s the best engine”. A beautifully presented, large history file, confirms that this Alfa Romeo has been well cared for and loved. Many invoices are recorded from well-known specialists such as Alfaholics and E. B. Spares. The vendor, who acquired the car in July 2014, has maintained it with the well-known Alfa guru, Titus Rowlandson of Victory Garage. There are letters on file confirming the history plus an Alfa Romeo Owner’s Club valuation of £50,000. Recent works have included a new hood and a fresh MoT test certificate, with no advisories, valid until May 2020. The car is complete with the aforementioned history file and UK V5 registration document. Presented in its original livery of Pininfarina Rosso with a contrasting black interior, this delightful Alfa Romeo really shines and is offered at a fraction of the cost of a restoration to bring a car to this standard. With back up from an excellent spares network offered by many UK specialists and with their twin cam engines, five-speed gearboxes and disc brakes all around, these Roundtail Spiders are surely, not only a piece of automotive art, but a very usable and practical classic. The vendor states, “It’s a really pretty car and a new owner will have a lot of fun in it. It’s a remarkably practical touring car.” So there you have it, a beautiful and usable classic Alfa Romeo.

    • ModelExcellence EX1
    • FE Cat descThe Facel Excellence occupies a special place in the history of the automobile. Firstly for the marque itself, Jean Daninos launched the luxury French brand in 1954, at a time when the country had lost its most prestigious manufacturers. Secondly for its body, a low, elegantly styled saloon that was as luxurious as a Bentley and as fast as a Jaguar thanks to its powerful and reliable American engine. Finally for its rarity, between 1958 and 1964, just 145 examples of the Excellence Series One and eight Series Two were produced. Presented in 1956 and available from 1958, the Excellence was distinguished by its subtle blend of luxury and exclusivity, the painted dashboard packed with dials had a sporty feel in keeping with the 5.9 litre Chrysler engine that allowed it to match some of the best sports cars around. The Excellence was a top performer and could hold its own among the best GTs Europe had to offer. Some high-performance American cars, most notably Chrysler's 300 'letter series' models, could probably outrun an Excellence in straight-line performance but they were neither as refined, well built, nor had the 'panache' of a Facel Vega. The Excellence was considerably shorter, narrower, and most of all, lower than its American counterparts and its comparatively compact measurements gave it the edge in the handling department which came in handy, especially under European road conditions. In an article for the November 1985 edition of Collectible Automobile Magazine, noted automotive historian Richard Langworth stated his opinion that "The Excellence is a large vehicle...better suited as a car of State rather than a daily driver". How he came to this conclusion despite the unanimously positive reviews regarding the road ability of the Excellence from the contemporary motoring press as well as its owners, has been a matter of debate ever since. This 1959 EX1 was originally exported by Facel Vega, Paris to the USA where it spent nearly 40 years before being imported to the UK in the late 90s in need of restoration. Our vendor purchased the car in the early 2000s, he was already the owner of two other Facel Vegas and set about a restoration process spanning nearly 18 years. Now presented in stunning deep blue with new opulent cream leather trim, this example is nearing completion and has been described as 'in the final leg of the restoration'. Our vendor has commissioned the services of JBR Ltd, West Sussex, who have experience with Facel Vegas, to undertake the full body-off restoration and the quality of the workmanship is nothing shy of outstanding thus far. The restoration work has been carefully catalogued, photographed and detailed throughout, evidence of which can be found in four box files of history along with a list of items that are required for the finish of the car. The restorer, a Mr. Brown, has indicated that for a nominal fee he would happily consult any new buyer through the final restoration stage, should a new owner require. Given his experience with the car and others, we think this is invaluable knowledge and the vendor is also grateful for his offer to consult. Upon inspection, we are informed the works required to complete the car include wiring and the final fit only. It starts and runs with the gearbox selecting correctly when requested. We believe, although the quality of finish should be upheld, finishing this project should be a short process with parts that are yet to be ordered readily available, the restorers JBR Ltd, have provided a list for these and details of the correct suppliers. This Facel is now UK registered and is presented with a UK V5 registration document, NOVA Certificate and a history file containing countless invoices, details and correspondence. A quick scan through the invoices gives the impression that, thus far, the restoration costs have exceeded £300,000, this is testimony to the quality and time taken on this gorgeous example. Thankfully for a fraction of that cost the car can be a finished by a new owner allowing this example to, once again, grace any promenade and steal admiring glances from all that set eyes upon her. This is an unique opportunity to own and complete one of our all time favourites.

    • ModelF100 Pick-up (Third Generation)
    • FE Cat descThere is no doubt that the Ford Pick-up occupies a special place in the psyche of the American male. Introduced in 1948, the F100 launched a love affair with this handsome utility vehicle that has lasted right up until today. First sold in a number of different configurations, the Pick-up was always the best seller. The next generation, from 1953 to 1956, had better engines and increased dimensions. The cab was also improved with a wraparound windscreen, new dashboard and even seatbelts. Optional of course. The third generation was, again, modernised and redesigned. Front bumpers were now integrated and the new ‘Styleside’ bed continued the smooth lines through to the rear. The current engine powering this striking example is a fully rebuilt 1972 Mustang, five litre unit by Huddart, now converted to run with an automatic gearbox and ‘Lockyer ‘ C3 transmission. Retardation comes in the form of power brakes with a custom built stainless steel exhaust also running beneath the car. Offered without reserve, bidding should be hot for this cool cat.

    • ModelContinental ‘Kennedy’ Coupé (Fourth Generation)
    • FE Cat descThere has been a close association between the American Secret Service, the White House and Ford’s Lincoln Continental for many years. It has been the choice of luxury car by these two senior US departments and named after the perceived ’continental’ styling elements it adapted. It was certainly the most expensive car sold by a domestic manufacturer in the United States and a direct contender for the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. The 1966-1969 solid construction and rigorous post-build inspection of each vehicle reflected Ford corporate management's commitment to making the finest mass-produced domestic automobile of its time. Sourced from Houston, Texas in 2014 and now fully UK registered, it is in solid condition throughout with good paintwork. It clearly sits on non-standard 20” ‘American Racing’ wheels, low profile tyres and a non-standard exhaust. The gold-coloured leather interior is in good order and the air conditioning unit has recently been rebuilt. The clutch was rebuilt to the tune of $800 in 2013 and it was last MoT tested in the UK in 2017/18. Included in the sale is a file of paperwork, mainly from the US detailing general servicing items as well as correct UK registration documents. Offered without reserve, this ‘Kennedy Coupé’ is a rare treat.

    • ModelFLHR Roadking
    • FE Cat descHarley-Davidson have been making bikes for over 100 years now and have, rather like Land Rover, operated in every theatre of war and over every continent since the beginning. They are the face of America and represent freedom for generations on both law enforcement and the rebel element. There are a myriad on configurations but the FLHR Roadking sports an air-cooled, 1340cc, twin cam, V-Twin Evolution motor mated to a five-speed manual transmission. It comes with standard air-adjustable, dual shock rear suspension, dual brake discs in the front and a large Hiawatha headlight. Acquired new from the vendor from Leicester HD, it has been specified with a number of modifications. These include a long range fuel tank, fish-tail exhausts, leather pannier bags to the rear and front forks (tool roll) and a (detachable) windscreen. There are also leather tassels on the footrests and ‘VICLA ape-hanger’ handlebars. The ‘Easy Rider’ look can be de-accessorised if required. It has always be cared for and used for the purpose for which it was designed; the vendor using it regularly for a monthly commute from the UK to the French/Swiss border. Supplied with UK registration document, this is offered without reserve.

    • ModelEldorado Coupé (Generation Seven)
    • FE Cat descThe Eldorado was a hit, lasting from the early 50’s to 2002 and over 10 different generations. It is no coincidence the name ‘El Dorado ‘refers to the South American lost city of gold as this was Cadillac’s premium brand. These were dramatic motorcars and celebrated all that the USA represented in its heyday. Tailfins in the 50’s began with the Eldorado, once again, pointing the way forward both in terms of styling and technological innovation. 1957 saw the hand-built ‘Series 70 Eldorado Brougham’ sporting unique trim, quad headlights and costing more than the equivalent Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. These headlights can still be found today on the Eldorado Coupé. It was radically redesigned in 1967 to capitalise on the era's burgeoning personal luxury car market. Promoted as a ‘personal’ Cadillac, the crisp styling, initiated by GM styling chief Bill Mitchell, was distinctive and unique. In 1970, the Eldorado introduced the new 8.2 litre engine driving, unusually, the front wheels allowing for an extremely roomy interior. Supplied from a British collector directly from a single California-based owner, it was sourced and shipped over in 2013. Fully optioned and with the addition of a tan Everflex roof, this impressive Eldorado Coupé drives well and has been enjoyed. Last MoT’d in 2017 without issue; this is fully registered in the UK and offered without reserve.

    • ModelFleetwood
    • FE Cat descThe Fleetwood name dates as far back as 1935 and represented cars with a longer wheelbase than their contemporary Cadillac stable mates. As had been the case since the 1977 model year, there were little more than trim differences between the Fleetwood and the DeVille. The Fleetwood coupé was dropped after the 1986 model year but returned in 1989 as rear-wheel drive, ex-Brougham body. It uses a de-tuned version of the the 5.7 litre, fuel-injected, Corvette-derived LT1 engine pushing out 260bhp and, as such, this top-end Fleetwood was the obvious choice for the chairman of the UK Cadillac Club. This last full-sized ‘last hurrah’ for the Fleetwood range was offered in a ‘Triple-Black Edition’ showing a full black leather interior with matching black paintwork and additional black trim. The air conditioning works well and the driving experience benefits from a factory-fitted electric sunroof. This represents the last year of the fibre optic lighting system, both front and rear with an MoT test certificate last passed in October 2018. Offered without reserve, this high quality modern classic Cadillac represents extremely good value for money.

    • ModelRiviera ‘Boattail’ Coupé (Generation Three)
    • FE Cat descWith over a million produced over numerous generations to date, there is no doubt that Buick represents a cornerstone in American car design and production. Allegedly reflecting the French Riviera, this stylish coupé was used to denote a premium-trimmed, six-window hardtop style. The elegant ground-up styling sported new ‘Coke bottle styling’, with the middle of the body exhibiting a tapered ‘tucked-in’ appearance. With the same power as the bigger Buicks and less weight, the Riviera had sparkling all-round performance; hitting 0-60mph in about eight seconds. Jaguar founder and designer, Sir William Lyons, remarked that the Rivera’s designer, Bill Mitchell, had done "a very wonderful job," with Sergio Pininfarina declaring it "one of the most beautiful American cars ever built.” The ‘Vee-butted’ fastback rear window was inspired by the Corvette Sting Ray and worked well, the profile well considered and swept from front to back. Acquired in 2013 from a US collector in Flint, Michigan, curiously just a few miles down the road from the factory, this car then went to Sussex before forming part of an extensive 70’s US collection in Northampton. This ‘burnished bronze’ with contrasting sandalwood interior example presents well with excellent carpets and optional power bench seats and column shift. Fully up and running with no rattles or squeaks and with new rear springs fitted, this car last had an MoT test certificate in October 2018 and should be simply procedural to acquire another.

    • Model‘Pillarless’ Sedan DeVille
    • FE Cat descThe Cadillac DeVille was originally a trim level and later a separate model dating right back to the late 40s, meaning ‘town car’ with the early models sporting a telephone in the glove compartment and a secretarial pad in the rear armrest. Advanced, even by today’s standards. Made famous by its huge sharp tailfins with dual bullet tail lights, the 1960’s Cadillacs had smoother, more restrained styling. In 1969, the DeVille was restyled with 1970 producing a face lifted front end and indeed the last year that pillared sedans were offered. 1974 saw the 210bhp, 8.2 litre, V8 introduced as the standard engine offering effortless, long distance cruising. Imported into Rotterdam from new, this is an EU car right from the start. It was then acquired in the UK in 2007 and proved very reliable using, as it does, the same transmission, as the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. Supplied with a black Everflex top and factory-fitted electric sunroof, it is well specified to include an electric boot closing system and a fully functioning eight-track stereo. Owned by a specialist US car collector in recent years, it was last MoT tested in October, 2018 and presents in good order throughout.

    • ModelMinor 1000
    • FE Cat descThe British ‘Moggy’ is part of the very fabric of this Island Nation. There was always one parked outside of the house of an expectant mother, patrolling our roads piloted by our boys in blue and modified to take advantage of our meagre quota of sunshine, the Morris Minor convertible. Today, well restored examples are collectable and no more so than this one. Stripped to the last nut and bolt in 2011 and off the road for nearly three years during the rebuild, this presents, according to vendor, in absolutely superb condition. Every part has been renewed, refurbished or rebuilt, apart from shock absorbers and gearbox. Updates and modernisations include a complete rewire with a new wiring loom and all new lights. New front disc brakes and servo, two-speed wipers matched to heated rear and front screens as well as all new brightwork. Engine modifications include, obviously, a complete engine rebuild with a heated inlet manifold, larger carburettors, an unleaded cylinder head and all new rockers and valves culminating in an MG Midget differential alongside a three branch, stainless steel manifold leading to a large bore, stainless steel exhaust. The bodywork benefits from all new heritage wings, new chassis cross members, a complete new front chassis and new inner wings and engine floor plates along with alloy wheels with premium rubber and new road springs in each corner and a complete new braking system. The interior is also new including seats, carpets and headlining. Paperwork includes a full photographic record of the rebuild detailing restoration costs exceeding £15,000, a Certificate of Origin from British Motor Industry Heritage Trust and an MoT test certificate valid until May 2020. Offered without reserve and excellent value for money.

    • ModelB GT
    • FE Cat descThe fixed roof MG B GT enjoyed an impressive production run that lasted from 1965 until 1980. The sporty design was from Pininfarina and can be said to have launched the sporty ‘hatchback ‘style. With the combination of a rear deck lid and a rear sloping window, the B GT offered the practicality of a station wagon linked to the style of a coupé. The B GT offered far more luggage space than the roadster and made use of a 2 + 2 configuration. Mechanically only a few components varied from the roadster but the B GT did receive different suspension springs, anti-roll bars and a different windscreen. Originally registered in April 1971, this MG B has been in the ownership of the current vendor for over 30 years. Although this MG hasn’t been on the road for a while the vendor states that he recently applied a little 'TLC' and the car started well. This attractive MG benefits from a Webasto sunroof, chrome bumpers and automatic transmission. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and a file containing various bills and receipts. This MoT exempt MG B has provided years of enjoyment and with the right care should continue to do so for many more.

    • ModelB GT
    • FE Cat descThe MG B GT was introduced in October 1965. Building on the success of MG A and MG B and based on the, already popular, roadster, the new GT sported a practical hatchback that gave useful access to the rear luggage space. The new model also benefitted from a rear bench seat that enabled the car to be called a 2+2. The aerodynamic efficiency in the Pininfarina designed new model was improved and led to an increase in top speed of 5mph. Originally registered in June 1966, this manual transmission MG B GT has been in the vendors possession for the last 28 years. As an enthusiast, during his tenure the vendor has completed most of the mechanical work himself and tells us that the car runs well. This desirable, chrome bumper, MG B GT presents well in red and benefits from a Webasto sunroof and wire wheels. Offered at no reserve, this MG comes to auction with a history file containing various bills and receipts and a V5C registration document. This car must surely represent an inexpensive opportunity for anyone interested in the world of classic cars.

    • ModelCobra 212 S/C Roadster
    • FE Cat descRightly regarded as one of the all-time greats, the fire-breathing AC Cobra has been highly coveted as far back as 1962. The late, great Carroll Shelby used a relatively simple strategy. Place a large engine in a light but beautiful body. Insert driver. Those of us who have a general awareness of these motorcars will have a memory of the tremendous power of the AC Cobra, the 289ci model and then the 427ci with its seven litre Ford, V8. The issue with this is the powerful but weighty engine and, to a lesser extent, the bodywork, this has been reflected in the fact that AC Car Group Limited is finding a steady demand from true connoisseurs wanting the ultimate in individuality offered by the AC Cobra 427, which it has been continuously building since the early 1960s. In 1996, AC developed the CRS, Carbon Road Series. The big engine remained but now twinned with a revolutionary, single-piece carbon-fibre tub. Working in parallel but with Lotus, John Owen was developing the highly successful 3.5 litre, V8, twin turbo engine pushing out about 350bhp. Lotus, quite rightly famed for their mid-engined mentality, could not make full use of this engine as it was specifically designed for front-engined production. It was at this point the Mr. Owen moved to AC and became their chief engineer. Bringing his light and powerful V8 with him. So now we have a F1-developed tub using the pioneering carbon fibre technology from the CRS mated to The 3.5 litre Lotus engine, now in the front, with twin Garrett turbochargers driving power through a Tremec T56, six-speed manual gearbox and BTR Hydratrak final drive limited slip differential (ratio 3.73:1) to the rear axle. Power steering is standard together with AP Racing dual circuit servo-assisted ventilated discs all round. High performance Avon tyres with Michel in Pilot Sport to the rear have been selected to create a special road/race package for the AC 212 S/C to ensure that the huge output of the Lotus V8 reaches its destination. ‘TAZ 212’ is featured in the AC Cobra 'bible', Trevor Legate's 'Cobra - The first 40 years' and at the time of its introduction, AC claimed that the 212 S/C was the world's fastest accelerating production car, this being one of just two righthand drive examples in the world. Its reputation continues when it served as AC's press car and subsequently featured by Octane, Car, Evo and Top Gear as well as an appearance in the Jeremy Clarkson video ‘Top 100 Cars’. As part of the initial press coverage it was also driven by motoring luminaries, Jeremy Clarkson, Damon Hill and Mark Blundell. The interior is of full alcantara design and matching steering wheel with black leather seating and machined aluminium gearknob and handbrake. Twin hooped roll bars provide additional safety and, stowed away, are the all-weather equipment. A large folder of bills and history accompanies the car, including all of the features written about it and the initial build information. It has been maintained regardless of cost and recently fully serviced, described as in generally very good condition throughout with surprisingly light road wear to the leading edges of the rear wheel arches and nose , it also comes with current MoT test certificate and Swansea V5C document. This is a truly special piece of AC history, the Holy Grail for collectors. One of a kind.

    • Model968 Sport
    • FE Cat descThe UK-only version called '968 Sport' was offered in 1994 and 1995, it formed part of the run of 1,923 968 ClubSports produced by Porsche in that period. Although badged as '968 Sports' in the UK, all are genuine 'ClubSports' with the luxury package option, which included electric front windows, rear seats, a sunroof and other ‘refinements’ such as cloth comfort seats (different from both the standard and the ClubSport). With the added electrics, the larger wiring loom was used and the Sport variant also got back the two rear seats, again in the cloth material specific to the Sport. This rare and desirable model of the Porsche 968 has been with the current vendor since the late 90's, it was initially his company car before he purchased privately in 2001. It was used as his daily driver until 2006 when became his weekend car, it was then used more sparingly and on average covered less than 2,000 miles a year. In 2009 the odometer stopped working reading 145,052 and the vendor estimates he has covered less than 10,000 miles since. Most recently the car has been garaged and not used a great deal, however it has still been maintained and MoT'd. Best described as a cosmetic restoration project, we are informed that, mechanically, this example is very good with any required work carried out by Vulcan Motors who have serviced the car since 2007. Before which, regular services were carried out by Northway Porsche or main dealer agents with a total of 17 service stamps. The History file accompanying the car is very good and all service and owner's books are present as is the MoT test certificate valid until November 2019. The Porsche 968 Sport with ClubSport underpinnings are fantastic drivers cars and command strong prices. This is an opportunity to breathe life back into this great car which would be ideal for either track or fast road use or to restore to its former glory. Offered without reserve.

    • Model911 / 993 Carrera
    • FE Cat descThe iconic Porsche 911/993 was introduced in 1993 as a replacement for the 964 and was built until 1998. Regarded by many as the best generation of 911's ever produced from Stuttgart, this car was the last to use the air cooled flat six engine that had powered 911s for the previous thirty years and thus the end of an era. It was offered in a number of guises and specifications during its production life including two and four wheel drive trains, known as Carrera and Carrera 4 respectively. The 993 was the first generation 911 to have standard six-speed manual transmission and, to this day, the manual examples are seen as more desirable compared to those with the then new tiptronic automatic transmission, given their fabulous driving performance. This Midnight Blue, with unmarked marble leather, example of the coveted 993 Coupé is brought to us having had, what we would consider, all of the major necessary maintenance work carried out within the last two years. Offered in lovely condition throughout, the previous owner has recently spent circa £9,500 to achieve possibly one of the best examples offered to the market today. Importantly, the works included, a brake, clutch and gearbox fluid change and full service. In 2018, new front discs and pads, oil filters, cam cover gasket and oil service and in 2017, new front shock absorbers and top mounts. Supplied with air conditioning, sunroof and the desirable, refurbished, 17" alloys, this car had been owned for some 15 years by the previous vendor. Most recently, it has undergone work to remove minor corrosion and a couple of small marks (before and after photos are available within the history file), it has had £2,500 of glass out paint work, to a very high standard, followed by a full geometry set-up in January of this year making it ready for the spring. Accompanying the car are two alarm/immobiliser fobs, four original keys, the original radio and alarm code, a service history supported by 33 service bills and previous MoT test certificates along with a current MoT test certificate valid for seven months with, unsurprisingly, no advisories. This is truly a well maintained and desirable car that, at this price, we would challenge you to find better.

    • ModelSilver Shadow I
    • FE Cat desc The Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was a luxury saloon car built from 1965 until 1980, it was the first Rolls-Royce to be constructed using a monocoque chassis and to date, has the largest production volume of any Rolls-Royce. The original Shadow was slightly narrower and shorter than the Silver Cloud, which it replaced, but managed to offer increased passenger and luggage space thanks to more efficient packaging made possible by its construction. Aside from a more modern appearance and construction, the Silver Shadow introduced many new features such as disc brakes instead of drum brakes and independent rear suspension rather than the ageing live axle design of previous cars. The car’s most innovative feature was a high-pressure hydraulic system licensed from Citroën, with dual-circuit braking and hydraulic self-levelling suspension. At first, both the front and rear of the car were controlled by the levelling system; the front levelling was deleted in 1969, as it had been determined that the rear levelling did almost all the work. Rolls-Royce achieved a high degree of ride quality with this arrangement. This very nice example which is presented in metallic Shell Grey with blue leather interior was used, in Blackpool, by a Jukebox manufacturer for 40 years and it has covered only limited mileage in that time. The present owner informs us that the car has been serviced and repaired, where necessary, by Rolls-Royce specialists and it comes with all its documentation and various invoices. Offered at no reserve, this majestic British classic is affordable to everyone and will no doubt bring many more years of pleasurable driving.

    • 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. This is 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 accompanying the car indicates there was minimal usage by the following owners, however there seems 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 and more recently it has been cared for by Retrospective of Banbury, as evidenced by bills on file totalling nearly £5,500. This Virage is presented with a V5C registration document, a valid MoT test certificate and a history file containing various bills. The Virage was produced in such small numbers that this stunning car could prove to be a sound investment.

    • Model944 Lux
    • FE Cat descThe Porsche 944 was built from 1982 to 1991 and was built on the same platform as the 924. It was intended to last into the 1990’s but major revisions planned for a 944 S3 model were eventually rolled into the 968 instead which replaced the 944. The 944 was a successful model and was available as both a coupé and cabriolet in naturally aspirated and turbocharged forms. In mid-1985, the Porsche 944 underwent significant changes. The new Porsche owners were attracted by the stunning looks and presence of the model and in 1985, the 'Lux' coupé arrived with a completely new interior design dominated by a smooth, sweeping oval dashboard. This severed all ties with the 924 and completed the move upmarket for the 944. Originally registered on 17th April 1986, this Porsche 944 is a low ownership vehicle with just two former keepers; the current vendor has owned C812 CNG since 1st May 1993. Presenting well in Arctic White and with the original service books, we are advised this 944, with automatic transmission, drives with no known faults. At one stage they were a familiar sight on UK roads however, it is fair to say that relatively few good examples still exist. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate, this Porsche 944 Lux is offered for sale without reserve.

    • ModelMini Cooper Sport
    • FE Cat descThe Mini was manufactured by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original Mini was, of course, considered a British icon of the 1960’s with its space-saving front-wheel drive layout allowing a large percentage of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage, this influenced a generation of car makers and started the rush to create the best small family car. The Mini Cooper Sport had a front-mounted radiator, driver's airbag 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"x6" alloy wheels while inside it featured an alloy dashboard as well as alloy window winders, door pulls and door handles. This lovely example, finished to 500 specification, is presented in British Racing Green with a silver roof and a wonderful leather interior in black and grey. It has had four owners from new and has been garaged since new by all of the owners, including the present one. The renowned specialist Wood and Pickett reconditioned the gearbox in 2017 and the Car Kitchen replaced the clutch this year. The car is presented with a full service history which includes some invoices, accompanying this are also the original owner's manuals. Sitting on a good set of Yokohama tyres and coming with two sets of keys, this is a wonderful classic British Sports car with great pedigree.

    • Model2000 Spider Veloce
    • FE Cat descA modern classic by Pininfarina, the simple yet elegant 'Kamm tail' Spider bodywork, premiered on the 1970 Spider Veloce and would prove enduringly popular, lasting into the 1990s. The Spider’s mechanics were essentially those of the Giulia saloon while the engine was the GTV’s double overhead camshaft four. The original 1750 version was a one year only model, with the advent of the Spica-injected 2000 model in 1971. Wind tunnel testing resulted in the 2000’s signature drag-reducing Kamm tail, while other improvements over the earlier Duetto models included bigger brakes and a limited slip differential. Outstanding speed, acceleration and handling were all characteristics of this class leading model, which nevertheless possessed a quite remarkable docility, even at high speeds and the twisting roads which were great for these Italian classics. The previous owner of this superb Spider completed a full nut and bolt restoration in 2004/05 which included welding repairs, a full respray, engine rebuild including ignition, valve seals, gearbox rebuild, big end bearings, pistons and a whole host more, the list of which is contained within the history file accompanying the car. Since 2006, the present owner has replaced the starter motor, tyres, brake pads and he has rebuilt the carburettors. All the receipts and photographs of the work can also been found in the history file. Immaculately presented in yellow with a black interior, this example is certainly one of nicest we have seen and with its black hood in great condition it is ready to be enjoyed.

    • ModelPlus 8
    • FE Cat descIntroduced in 1968, the Plus 8 became such an instant hit and enduring success that it not only provided the bedrock on which Morgan could build for the future, but quite possibly saved the company at a difficult time in its long history. Searching for new engines, Morgan concluded a deal with Rover for supply of its all aluminium 3.5 litre V8, thus creating a car that combined vintage charm with Cobra-like 'grunt' - the Plus 8. Morgan's Plus 4 chassis, strengthened and extended, formed the basis of the new car, while the existing Moss four-speed gearbox was also retained. After a successful debut at the 1968 London Motor Show, production commenced at the rate of around 15 cars per month. While the traditionally styled Morgan's brick-like aerodynamics restricted top speed to around 125mph (more than fast enough for most people driving an open car) the Rover V8's 168bhp made for supercar league performance through the gears. The Morgan Plus 8 was very popular and remained in production for 36 years. Originally registered on 21st March 1977 this Morgan has been owned by the vendor for the last 30 years. In 1987 the car was restored at The Morgan Motor Factory including a new aluminium body, wings and frame. In 1993 the engine was rebuilt by Techniques to 4.1 litre fast road specification, an oil cooler was also fitted together with a Harpers SS tuned exhaust system. The brakes have been upgraded as have the shock absorbers. This is a Morgan that certainly travels with alacrity. During his stewardship, the vendor has spent long periods working overseas which accounts for the low mileage; however the car has been professionally stored in his absence. Presenting in very good order, this Morgan is supplied with a V5 registration certificate and a history folder. Without doubt this is an interesting Plus 8 that offers performance and handling second to none. Photographs courtesy of Luke Papworth from Hampshire Photography

    • Model600 SEC
    • FE Cat descThe Mercedes-Benz W140 is a series of flagship vehicles that were manufactured by the German automotive company from 1991 to 1998. On November 16th 1990, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the W140 S-Class via press release, later appearing in several February and March editions of magazines. The W140 introduced innovations such as double pane window glazing, power-assisted closing for doors and boot lid, electric windows which lowered back down upon encountering an obstruction, rear parking markers which rose from the rear wings (discontinued on later vehicles, and replaced with sonar assisted parking) and a heating system which, if desired, continued to emit warm air after the engine was turned off. For details like this, the W140 is often known as the last Mercedes to be 'over-engineered,' a Mercedes trait that was costing the company in product delays and over budgeting. According to 'Motor Trend', this action reportedly caused project cost overruns and resulted in the departure of Wolfgang Peter, Daimler-Benz's chief engineer. The vehicle is believed to have cost Mercedes-Benz over $1 billion to develop. For the consumer, the W140 cost a considerable 25 percent more than its predecessor, the W126. This rare S600 was first registered in August 1993, finished in white with navy blue leather, with dark wood trim. The car sits on its correct eight hole alloys and is fitted with Continental tyres. The interior is in good condition and it looks as though the rear seats have never been sat in! The car has an impressive stereo system, helped no doubt by the double glazing and great sound insulation. This top of the range car also benefits from automatic climate control and other optional extras such as a rear blind. Being an early car, this car is fitted with reversing markers at the rear corners, which pop up on command. Renowned for their silky smooth V12 engines with the ability to balance a 50p piece on its side at idle, and this one is no different. With nearly 400hp on tap, the performance is impressive, accelerating at some rate on a wave of power. The gearbox shifts seamlessly and it handles as one would expect. There has been a documented engine change and although the paperwork has been misplaced, the photo album still exists. It comes with spare keys and its original book pack, although it is missing its service book. This is a rare S600 Coupé, well known within the MB Owner's Club and featured as part of their display at the NEC in 2006. It represents unbelievable value today.

    • ModelTR6
    • FE Cat descThe TR6 was introduced in 1968 and was the bestseller of the TR range when production ended in July 1976. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5. The design house, Karmann Consultants, squared off the front and back ends to give the TR6 its sharpened look. Fitted with a 2.5 litre, in-line six-cylinder engine, the TR6 could reach 60mph in just over 8.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 120mph. It featured a four-speed manual transmission with an optional overdrive unit and semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, 15" wheels and tyres, bucket seats and a full complement of instrumentation. Presented in, near unmarked, red coachwork with black trim, this stunning example was first registered in February 1972. Today, found in great order throughout after a comprehensive ground up restoration in the late 90s and early noughties, this car has clearly been cherished ever since, including being undersealed in 2001 and in 2015, a new clutch was fitted. In the boot we find an original tool kit and handbook and contained within the comprehensive history file we can see countless older MoT test certificates, a Triumph Heritage Certificate and receipts and invoices, importantly, covering the dates of the restoration work. In this condition, prices for TR6's have been steadily on the rise, this example is one of the best we have seen and we certainly recommend viewing.

    • ModelCB750 K2
    • FE Cat descHonda introduced the CB750 motorcycle in 1969 to the US and European markets after experiencing great success with their smaller motorcycles. The CB750 offered two unprecedented features, a front disc brake and a four cylinder transverse engine with an overhead camshaft, neither of which were previously available on a mainstream affordable production motorcycle. These two features gave the CB750 a considerable advantage over its competition, particularly its British rivals. This Honda presents in splendid condition and benefits from having a full engine rebuild in November 2014, photographic evidence is available. The paintwork is unblemished as is the chromework. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a number of invoices, these classic Hondas’ are great to look at and even better to ride. Photographs courtesy of Luke Papworth from Hampshire Photography

    • ModelEscort Mexico Mk. II Group 4 Rally Car Evocation
    • FE Cat descThe squarer-styled Escort Mk. II appeared in January 1975 with the first production models having rolled off the production lines on 2nd December 1974. Unlike the first Escort, which was developed by Ford of Britain, the second generation was developed jointly between the UK and Ford of Germany. Codenamed ‘Brenda’ during its development, it had the same mechanical configuration as its predecessor; the estate and van versions even used the same panel-work as the Mk. I but with the Mk. II front end and interior. The car used a revised underbody which had, in fact, been introduced as a running change during the last six months of the life of the Mk. I. The car was a success with just four body styles competing in a variation of market niches where rival manufacturers had multiple models. The ‘L’ and ‘GL’ models were mainly purchased by the private sector; the ‘Sport’, ‘RS Mexico’ and ‘RS2000’ in the performance market; the ‘Ghia’ for an untapped small car luxury sector and ‘base’ models for the fleet market. In September of 1989, this Escort was purchased by Mr. G Halstead who after much research set about building this superb Group 4 rally car to exact specification of the cars built by David Sutton Motorsport Ltd. In August 1991, David Sutton personally invited Mr. Halstead to his factory to run through the specification and work involved. Starting with a Ford Mexico bodyshell, Gartrac of Chiddingford carried out the body modifications Gartrac Shell number GAR104MK2/03/98. This Escort was stripped and totally rebuilt. A significant history folder confirms the specification, however here are some of the important details; a 1975cc Millington BDG fuel injected engine is fitted. This is mated to a ZF works gearbox, with Gartrac rear axle and suspension, braking is courtesy of ventilated disc brakes. Seating is via a pair of Sparco seats with four-point harness safety belts and of course, a roll-cage is fitted. Open the boot and you will see a G4 Premier Fuel Systems Ltd tank and the reservoir for the engine oil. The under bonnet area is an area of braided hoses and stainless steel, with everything in easy reach and ample room to work as and when required. This Group 4 rally car is supplied with a V5C registration document and a superb history folder detailing the significant expenditure and with drawings and specifications for any future owner. Superb quality and attention to detail make this Escort an outstanding example. Any interested parties are strongly recommended to view the car and paperwork of this vehicle.

    • ModelMustang Notchback
    • FE Cat descThe Ford Mustang is an American icon and was originally based on the Ford Falcon compact. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on 9th March 1964 and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on 17th April 1964. It was, and remains, one of the most successful product launches in automotive history. The Mustang sold over one million units in its first 18 months on the market and its legend lives on with revised models still in production today after 50 years. With each revision, the Mustang saw an increase in overall dimensions and in engine power. This Mustang is owned by a car enthusiast and is only being sold due to lack of suitable storage space. This is a sound example in good solid order throughout. The 289c.i. engine is an uncomplicated unit and is known for its reliability. The vendor had the differential overhauled in September 2016, new universal joints were also fitted to the prop-shaft at the same time. The automatic gearbox was rebuilt by Stanton Automatics in Tonbridge also in September 2016. Benefitting from a full years MoT test certificate, this handsome example comes with a V5C registration document and receipts for the above work. Now could be the time to ignite your youth again as the new owner of this cool blue example.

    • ModelVirage Volante
    • FE Cat descThe Virage was Aston Martin's replacement for the decades old V8 models and introduced at the Birmingham Motor Show in 1988. This V8 powered car was intended as the company's top model with their 6 cylinder 1994 DB7 slotted below it but this V8 model (by then in Vantage form) remained the exclusive, expensive and hand built king of Astons. The Virage was a large, heavy car in spite of its all aluminium body, but the 32-valve 5.3 litre V8 engines elevated its performance to sports car levels. "Acceleration just never seems to run out", claimed Sports Car International on a first test. They also praised the "eager and quicker revving" nature of the engine with its Callaway designed heads and Weber Marelli fuel injection. "Nothing sounds quite like an Aston V8”, they concluded. The Virage Volante debuted at the 1990 Birmingham Motor Show with production examples beginning in 1992 featuring 2+2 seating. Originally registered on 10th June 1992, this Aston Martin is owned by a classic car enthusiast and presents in very good order. The blue metallic coachwork is unblemished as is the blue hood. This highly collectable Virage Volante benefits from a good service record, included in the receipts is a bill from Ian Mason Aston Martin Service on 11th November 2005 at 24,880 miles for removal and skimming of the cylinder heads costing over £16,000. Described by the vendor as driving well with no known mechanical faults, although he is aware of a problem with the odometer which is a common problem on these models, records indicate that the car had covered 34,021 miles in February 2019 and has covered minimal mileage since. It is supplied with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 18th February 2020 with no advisories and the original handbooks, together with the AMV 4S registration plate. Only 233 Virage Volantes were manufactured and sold by Aston Martin and with later examples creeping up in price, any Volante looks to be a sound future investment proposition. In particular, this vehicle, with its good condition, is a great opportunity for the serious investor or collector to acquire one of the last hand built cars made by Aston Martin.

    • Model7 AAL Tourer
    • FE Cat descThe Austin 7 was produced from 1922 through to 1939 and nicknamed the 'Baby Austin'; it was one of the most popular cars ever produced and sold equally well abroad. It wiped out most other British small cars and cycle cars of the early 1920's and its effect on the British market was similar to that of the Model T Ford in the USA. Prior to the Austin 7 though, larger cars were the order of the day but the forward thinking of Sir Herbert Austin felt a smaller car would be more popular. Austin put a large amount of his own money into the design and patented many of its innovations. In return for the investment, he was paid a royalty of two guineas on every car sold. Nearly 2,500 cars were made in the first year of production (1923), not as many as hoped, but within a few years the 'big car in miniature' had transformed the fortunes of the Austin Motor Co. and by 1939, when production finally ended, over 290,000 cars and vans had been manufactured. This Austin 7 was stored for around 15 years and has recently been recommissioned. The car appears to be sound with some minor blemishes on the paintwork, the interior has a lovely patina and the hood together with the side screens are new. Mechanically this Tourer is described as driving well although the vendor has advised us the fuel gauge does not work; a wooden dip stick has proven to be more reliable than the gauge. The starter motor has been rebuilt and we are advised all the electrics operate correctly including the indicator arms. The under bonnet area could do with a tidy up which could be an ideal job for the winter. Supplied with a V5C registration document, the owner has conscientiously had the car MoT’d which expires on 9th June 2020, it passed without any advisories. Originally registered on 19th February 1936, this Austin has certainly stood the test of time well.
