    • Model75 Connoisseur
    • FE Cat descThe Rover 75 was manufactured by Rover Group and later by MG Rover. The Rover 75 was available with front-wheel drive in either a saloon or estate body style and latterly, in long wheelbase form and a rear-wheel drive, V8 engined specification. Rover 75’s were built at Cowley, Oxfordshire, for just a year when the owners at the time, BMW, divested its interests in Rover and the 75 was built by the new MG Rover Group at their Longbridge site in Birmingham. Production of the Rover and later MG badged models ceased on 8th April 2005 when manufacturer MG Rover Group entered administration. Originally registered on 31st October 2002, the current registered keeper purchased this Rover on 14th December of the same year. The car covered 18,000 miles in the first eight years on the road and has covered 4,000 miles in the last nine years. Presenting in excellent condition throughout, this Rover drives exceedingly well with no rattles or squeaks. Powered by a 1.8 litre diesel engine which is mated to a five speed automatic gearbox, this 75 Connoisseur is a well equipped vehicle with electric seats, park distance control, heated seats, air conditioning and cruise control. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate; Rover 75’s are an underrated vehicle and could have investment potential.

    • ModelP4 105R
    • FE Cat descThe all new, post-war Rover appeared during the autumn of 1949 and became one of the most readily recognised and fondly remembered cars of the era, the stately P4 with its column gearshift and 'gentlemen's club' interior would prove an immense success for the Solihull firm, remaining in production until 1964. The pinnacle of the range was the 'R' and 'S' models that boasted the most power and easily topped the magic 100mph. Introduced in 1956, the P4 105R and P4 105S had a high compression cylinder head and twin SU carburettors that boosted power to a very respectable 108bhp. The 'R' and 'S' designations referred to their transmissions, the 105R featured a Roverdrive automatic transmission while the 105S had a four-speed manual with overdrive. Both were luxuriously equipped and are in high demand amongst marque fans. This Rover P4 105R was first registered in south west London during 1958 and was purchased by the current P4 enthusiast/owner in the spring of 2016 with a view of carrying out sympathetic aesthetic improvements. Today, this presents very well; its coachwork, finished in Sage Green, is all in excellent order and is complemented by the, also excellent, chromework. The interior boasts lovely green leather and African walnut woodwork, both having been lightly restored. A set of ‘Quick Fit’ (the highly respected specialists in classic car passenger restraints) seat belts complement the leather whilst, for the modern day user, a satellite navigation connection is fitted. Other works have included a new torque converter, battery, four radial tyres, replacement steering wheel, four new door rubbers and recently, electric power steering. A large history file accompanies this Rover and includes all the supporting invoices, a Rover P4 Guild archivist record of owners (back to 1983), a letter from Rover to potential P4 customers and a UK V5 registration document. Rover motor cars of this period are considered to be built to a quality akin to other high quality marques such as Rolls- Royce and Bentley whilst this example demonstrates almost silent running at tick over. Take a look at this fine example and we think you may agree.

    • ModelMini 'The Italian Job'
    • FE Cat descPurchased in 2016 by our vendor, this example now presented in red coach work with black interior trim. Originally registered on 7th September 1990, this example was a Mini Thirty with a 998cc engine and four speed manual gearbox. Between 2016 and 2018 this example was treated to a full rebuild. The works include, but were not limited to, 60% new panels before a full bare metal respray and a powder coated sub frame. This car was then treated to new 10" wheels, triple spot lamps, Mk. I grilles, bumpers and lights along with badges. The interior was treated to new seat covers with matching piping, carpets and new door cards and a central binnacle. The extensive works are all photographed and show a very good level of workmanship, copies of which are included in the history file accompanying this Mini. Now presenting as new, this is certainly a car we recommend viewing.

    • ModelMini 'The Italian Job'
    • FE Cat descThis example, based on a 1990 Rover Mini Studio 2 with the 998cc engine, is a replica of the blue 'Italian Job' Mini from the 1969 film. Purchased by our vendor in December 2015, the car underwent a full rebuild and restoration with 60% all new panels and a bare metal respray in Island Blue on a powder coated subframe, photographs are contained within the history file detailing the works undertaken. Once the body was complete, the car was treated to new Mk. I original size 10” wheels, suspension arms and rubbers, exhaust and brake lines. This example then appeared more authentic and backdated and included a Mk. I grille, bumpers, external hinges, sliding windows, round rear lights, hinged rear number plate, age related private number plates, central three dial binnacle and full Cooper S badging before it was finished with Italian Job triple spot lights and bonnet straps. This is a fabulous backdated and restored example which has clearly had much attention and investment and would prove a great purchase for any Mini or Italian Job fan.

    • ModelMini Mayfair
    • FE Cat descThe 1956 Suez Crisis saw fuel rationing reintroduced in the United Kingdom. This resulted in the slowdown in sales of large fuel thirsty vehicles. Leonard Lord, the head of the British Motor Corporation, laid down some basic design requirements for a smaller more efficient vehicle. The rest as they say is history. The automotive designer Alec Issigonis created the Mini, possibly the most recognisable British car of all time. Since its launch in August of 1959, the Mini has seen a variety of developments, including a new manufacturer but has remained in production to this day. This barn find Mini Mayfair was purchased by our vendor in 2018 from a doctor's estate in the south of England. It had been laid up in his garage and was in 'barn find' condition when purchased by our vendor with the full intention to perform a light restoration for her personal use. Having since been garaged and the restoration not started, our vendor has decided to pass on this 1275cc Mayfair. It is described as a starting and running example in need of recommissioning and thus is not offered with a an MoT test certificate. Presented in red coachwork with grey velour trim, this automatic example is mated to the larger 1275cc engine with a wood veneer dashboard. A perfect first time classic project for father and son or for someone cutting their teeth within restoration.

    • Model25
    • FE Cat descDUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION This example of Rovers last independently made motor car, the 25, is presented in deep blue with contrasting cloth trim, it has covered just 14,800 miles from new and almost entirely with one owner. This manual example has an MoT test certificate valid until April 2020 and is offered with the original book pack. This being Rover last foray in car manufacturing at their Longbridge plant and with such little mileage and ownership, this car was, in 2005, honoured with the Auto Express 'Bargain of the Year Award' at the prestigious Auto Express Used Car Honours. This may well become a piece of motoring history for the originally British brand now owned by a Chinese manufacturer. Offered without reserve, this would suit anyone looking for great cheap motoring or a Rover enthusiast wanting to hold onto a slice of British motoring history.
