    • ModelA35 Van
    • FE Cat desc1951 saw Austin's reply to the Morris Minor, the A30 was launched at the Motor Show of that year.A more cautious design than the Minor, the A30 was nevertheless Austin's first unitary construction car and the first to be powered by the famous A-Series engine. The A30's selling price undercut the Minor's by £10, thanks in part to such cost-cutting features as external door hinges, a solitary rear light, sliding windows and rear brakes operated by a single hydraulic cylinder via a mechanical linkage. A two-door model joined the four-door original in 1953, with van and estate versions following in 1954. The model was updated in 1956 with a wider rear window, remote gear lever and the 948cc engine, becoming the A35. Saloon production ceased on the Mini's arrival in August 1959, though the particularly popular A35 van would live on until 1968. This A35 van was originally registered on 17th July 1963 and was purchased by the vendor in September 2012 for use as a promotional tool for their business. At the time of the purchase the interior was a little tired and was fully re-trimmed in leather, the carpets replaced and the load area boarded and trimmed. Supervan, as the van is affectionately called, was subject to a full restoration circa 1999 by a renowned A35 specialist, which was documented and the subject of a club magazine article. Whilst being restored the engine and gearbox were replaced for 1098cc MG Midget units along with front disk brakes, anti roll bar, twin carburettors and a higher ration rear differential making for a much more useable vehicle able to keep up with modern traffic. Supplied with a V5C registration document, a handbook and some previous MoT test certificates together with a collection of invoices. This Austin A35 van is an ideal way to market a business or enjoy uncomplicated classic car motoring that is both tax and MoT exempt.

    • ModelMinor 1000 Van (6cwt)
    • FE Cat descWith Austin and Morris both being part of BMC, the Minor-based Morris commercials were also marketed as the Austin 6cwt and Austin 8cwt, with a closed van and open pick-up version of the Minor being built from 1953 until the end of production in 1973. They were designed for commercial use with small businesses in mind, although many made their way to larger corporations. The van version was popular with the Post Office, with the early version of these (to around 1956) having rubber front wings, to cope with the sometimes unforgiving busy situations in which they were expected to work. Both the van and the pick-up differed from the monocoque construction of the Saloon and Traveller variants, by having a separate chassis. They also differed in details such as telescopic rear dampers, stiffer rear leaf springs and lower-ratio differentials to cope with the heavier loads. The commercial versions were initially marketed as the Morris Quarter Ton Van and Pick-up, with a Series III designation applied from 1956. The names Minor 6cwt Van and Pickup were used following the introduction of the 1098cc engine in 1962, and the 8cwt version was added in 1968. This 1971 Austin Minor 1000 6cwt Van was repainted by the previous owner in 2013, changing the colour from maroon and cream to the present colour of green. Over the next three years the van was shown at various classic car shows. It was purchased by the current keeper in 2018, a specialist film vehicle hire company, for the use in the up and coming film ‘Peter Rabbit 2’ which is being released 27th March 2020. The MoT test certificate history shows that this Morris has covered less than 10,000 in the last twelve years. Supplied with a V5C registration document, this is a rare opportunity to purchase a Austin Morris Minor 1000 6cwt Van offered without reserve which now has some film providence and if the second film does as well as the first could cause a rise in value in the future.

    • ModelMini 1000
    • FE Cat descThe Mini was made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960s; with its space-saving, front-wheel drive layout, allowing 80% of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage. This influenced a generation of car makers, and in 1999, the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T. This distinctive, two-door car was designed by Sir Alec Issigonis, and was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants. The Mini Mk. I had three major UK updates; the Mk. II, the Clubman and the Mk. III. Within these were a series of variations, including an estate car, a pick-up and a van. The Mini Cooper and Cooper 'S' were sportier versions, and made successful racing cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times from 1964 through to 1967. Initially, Minis were marketed under the Austin and Morris names; as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini Minor, until Mini became a marque in its own right in 1969. This remarkably well kept Mini 1000 automatic has been cared for throughout its life, covering only 21,320 miles from new. The original owner, a Mrs B. Elliot, purchased the car in June 1979 for £3,139.59, from Kennings Motor Distributors of Derby. The car was undersealed from new which has helped to keep it in such a condition to this day. The interior trim and headlining are in very good order and the Russet Brown paintwork is certainly a credit to the car, as is the chromework. Accompanying this vehicle is an impressive history file, including many previous MoT test certificates, as well as a wealth of servicing and repair bills together with the original bill of sale. Original handbooks and owner’s workshop manual can also be found along with a V5C registration document. Having been garaged and well looked after by its previous owners, this is a collector’s example with a history to support its place as a true classic Mini.

    • ModelMini Clubman 1275GT
    • FE Cat descThe Mini was made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960s and its space-saving front-wheel drive layout, allowing 80% of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage, influenced a generation of car makers. The Mini Mk. I had three major UK updates; the Mk. II, the Clubman and the Mk. III. Within these were a series of variations including an estate car, a pick-up and a van. The Mini Cooper and Cooper ‘S’ were sportier versions that were successful as rally cars winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times from 1964 through to 1967. This delightful Mini was originally registered on 26th August 1978 having been supplied by Wadham Stringer in St. Austell. The vendor is a knowledgeable Mini enthusiast and spent months looking for a car of this quality. A documented speedometer change occurred when she had covered a mere 3,445 miles making the total mileage this 1275GT has covered 41,103 miles; this is confirmed by a history folder containing MoT test certificates dating back to 1984, the original service books are also present in the file. Invoices in the file confirm an oil service was carried out in June 2019 and in July work was carried out on the rear brakes. Finished in yellow with grey interior, this Mini Clubman is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 20th May 2020 together with a spare set of keys. These highly sought after Mini’s are rare to find particularly when presented in largely original condition as this one appears to be.

    • ModelMini 'The Italian Job'
    • FE Cat descPurchased in 2017 by our vendor who is part of the Welwyn Jolly Boys, this example now presented in white, its 'Italian Job' colours having originally been supplied as a Austin Mini Racing Flame in June 1989. After purchase and with the grand plan to take this and the other Minis on a pilgrimage, this example was treated to a full rebuild. The works include but were not limited to an engine rebuild with the original block re-bored and a re-ground crank shaft, the body was then treated to 60% new panels before a full bare-metal respray and a powder coated subframe. Naturally, to pass the grade as an 'Italian job' replica, this car was treated to new wheels, triple spot lamps, Mk. I grilles, windows, bumpers and lights along with badges and bonnet straps. The extensive works are all photographed and show a very good level of workmanship. It is worth noting that the car was a rotisserie restoration. Now presenting as new and described as a 10/10 by the vendor, this is certainly a car we recommend viewing. With an MoT test certificate until April 2020 and UK V5 registration document, many years of enjoyment is ahead of one lucky bidder.

    • ModelTaxi High Line Landaulette
    • FE Cat descThere is nothing more familiar on earth than the sight of a New York taxi except, perhaps, a London one. Their shape has changed over the years but the ability to carry four passengers plus their luggage has not and, indeed the Austin version has continued to be the mainstay of the fleet through the 1930s and, indeed, upto the present day. The High Line version, named due to its height and its ability to accommodate top-hats, eventually became the LL or ‘Low Loader’. Interestingly, the word ‘taxi' was derived from the French word 'Hacquenée' meaning 'horse for hire', hence the term ‘hackney cab’. As you would hope when acquiring a vintage taxi, this fabulous example came from a retired taxi driver some four years ago. It first went into service in 1933 and was retired in the mid-1950s. Needless to say, it has covered a fair few miles and, like all taxis, has undergone a rigorous maintenance schedule in accordance with the Hackney Carriage Licensing Office and their public liability insurance policy. The passenger space is in good order throughout with restored leatherette seating and the original-style coir matting. Additional, original and often hard to find are the brass Pyrene fire-extinguisher, the Halda meter (still working) and a full set of period luggage. Used regularly and seen most recently in BBCs Agatha Christie’s Poirot, this is ready to pressed into service, so long as you have the fare!
