    • FE Cat descThe first-generation Range Rover was produced between 1970 and 1996. The original car was not designed as a luxury 4x4; whilst certainly up-market compared to preceding Land Rover models, the early Range Rovers had fairly basic, utilitarian interiors with vinyl seats and plastic dashboards that were designed to be washed down with a hose. Convenience features such as power assisted steering, carpeted floors; air conditioning, cloth/leather seats and wooden interior trim were fitted later in the production run. The Range Rover also served as the base for specialist utility vehicles including fire engines and command centres for the army and police. Marketed as 'A Car For All Reasons', the Range Rover was more capable off-road than the Land Rover but was much more comfortable, offering a top speed in excess of 100mph. This very original Range Rover was supplied to South Africa and is finished in the period colour of Sunburst Yellow. The body panels appear to be virtually original and the interior trim remains as it left the factory, albeit for a little wear on the driver’s seat bolster. The factory supplied radio is still in the car as is the jack and manual crank tool. The roof lining is in good condition and looks to have been replaced with a suede buttoned liner whilst the front and rear floors are covered with a South African specification PVC finish together with the large centre console. The vehicle also benefits from air conditioning. We are advised the 3.5 litre V8 engine performs well and the vehicle drives with no known faults. Supplied with V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate, this car also benefits from having a stainless steel exhaust system fitted. It is rare to find such examples today, these classic shape two door Range Rovers are increasingly difficult to find, particularly in this condition.

    • ModelContinental Flying Spur
    • FE Cat descDUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN FROM THE AUCTION The Bentley Continental Flying Spur (2006 - 2013) is the second Bentley manufactured since Volkswagen Group purchased the brand in 1999, after the Continental GT. The Flying Spur is essentially a four-door version of the GT, with a longer wheelbase and greater length for more spacious rear seating. The two models are similarly priced and the Flying Spur carries the same twin-turbo 6.0-litre W12 used in the Continental GT, for an output of 600bhp. It has a 0 to 60 time of a very impressive 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 195 mph. The steering column-mounted paddle shifters enable direct access to the six-speed gearbox when the ZF transmission is in sports mode or the car can be driven at a more leisurely pace in automatic mode. Twelve inches longer than the GT and sharing the same permanent four-wheel drive platform and twin-turbo 6.0-litre W12 engine, although it must be said the Flying Spur is not just about eye-watering performance, the cabin is whisper quiet at any speed thanks to the silky engine and the extensive noise insulation measures that extend to double-pane glazing. This Bentley benefits from a full main dealer service history. To drive such a car is a memorable experience, when they have been cosseted in such a way as this example has it enhances the driving experience even further. The specification of a Flying Spur is exceptional with climate control front and rear, heated seats, electric memory seats and air conditioned seats. Finished in silver with black interior and supplied with a V5C registration document together with an Mot test certificate valid until 3rd April 2020 with no advisories. This has been an exceptionally well cared for example having had ten services throughout its life all at Bentley main dealers, the last one was carried out by Jack Barclay on 12th March 2018 at 40,410 miles. The ergonomics of a Bentley Flying Spur are superb and the interior is remarkably sumptuous with ample leather and wood. Without doubt this car offers exceptional value for money.

    • 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 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.

    • ModelA Roadster
    • FE Cat descWe are delighted to offer this wonderful and early MGA Roadster that has been in its current ownership for the past 35 years. The MG was discovered, in a dreadful state, in a barn at Westoning, Bedfordshire, during 1984 by the current owner. It was recovered, virtually in two halves and thus began a four-year restoration by the owner, with the assistance of the staff of the Colchester Institute. The MG was then used in rallies whereby it won its class in the 1991 Top Gear Heritage Historic Rally Car Championship. With only 799 UK home market of the MGA being manufactured during 1956, this is indeed a rare surviving example. Today SLN 994 presents very well. The coachwork looks resplendent in red with excellent chrome and sits upon a set of painted wire wheels with new tyres. Mechanically, this MGA is in very good condition with recent works that included a brake overhaul with new master cylinder, brake slave cylinders and brake shoes. It further benefits from copper brake pipes, a stainless steel exhaust and a single 12-volt battery conversion. The interior does not disappoint and exudes an air of pleasant patination. The black leather seats are in very good order as are the carpets and door cards. A full set of weather equipment are included, a tonneau cover, side screens and a hood that was replaced in 2018. During the 1956 Mille Miglia, four MGA cars were entered. Car number 226 did not turn up, however, three further MGAs did race, all finishing with the highest place being car number 229 of Scott-Russell/Haig, a testament their strength and reliability. SLN 994 is eligible for the Miglia Mille Retrospective (subject to rules and specifications). The history file includes its FIA Historic Vehicle Identity Form, an RAC Motor Sports Association Rally Special Stage Vehicle Log Book, a UK V5C registration document, a large collection of invoices and a MoT test certificate valid until August 2020. This lovely MGA is ready to enjoy straight away, either on rallies or local jaunts, who’s going to be lucky enough to enjoy it?

    • Model300SE Coupé
    • FE Cat descThe values of these wonderful cars are now following the same upward climb as the Pagodas; and in this condition represent an extremely sound investment as well as being a real delight to own and drive. In March 1962, Mercedes-Benz released the 300SE Coupé. Due to marketing reasons this car, like its sedan stable mate, was kept apart from the W111 220SE that was launched in 1960 and had its own chassis number W112, which envisioned it as a successor to the W187 300S two-door series, rather than the Ponton range. The car was featured with a chrome strip, air suspension and the Daimler-Benz top of the range 2996cc, M189 engine and, as such, this vehicle remained deliberately split from the rest of the W111 family to emphasise the differences in the much higher level of specification. Originally registered on 19th September 1967, this delightful 300SE has been the subject of a ground up restoration circa five years ago resulting in a near perfect example of a W112 coupé. A £12,000 rebuild of the engine together with the replacement of all the fuel and brake lines, using only Mercedes-Benz parts, give this car a driving performance that almost takes it back to the day it left the factory. Contained within the history file are over 40 pages of invoices detailing the parts and work that was carried out during the restoration. The bodywork, the original factory colour, is simply stunning and the chromework is in pristine condition. The original leather is also in excellent order and extremely supple. The Wilton carpets are as new and the woodwork and headlining are in excellent order. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate; a very well presented example of this extremely stylish motorcar.

    • ModelV8 Series II Fi
    • FE Cat descThese Aston Martins were intended to house the new Tadek Marek-designed V8, the DBS first appeared with the 4.0 litre six of the concurrently produced DB6. Styled in-house by Bill Towns, the four-seater DBS employed a platform-type chassis with independent suspension all round. Bigger and more luxuriously appointed than the DB6, the heavier DBS disappointed some due to its rather lacklustre performance but there were no complaints when the V8 arrived in 1969! With an estimated 345bhp available from its 5,340cc, fuel-injected, four-cam engine, the DBS V8 could reach 100mph in under 14 seconds, with a top speed of 160mph; this was staggering in those days and one which fully justified the claim that it was the fastest production car in the world. In 1972 the acquisition of Aston Martin by Company Developments brought with it a change of name for the V8-engined cars, out went DBS V8 and in came the AM V8. This new Series Two was distinguishable by its restyled front which now featured two instead of four headlamps and recalled the looks of the earlier DB six-cylinder cars. Electronic ignition and air conditioning were now standard which we are sure was greatly received. We are delighted to offer for sale this 1973 Aston Martin Series II V8 with mechanical fuel injection. These were the first Astons built following the sale of Aston Martin by David Brown to Company Developments. This particular car was a barn find, having been off the road for 17 years it was bought by the present owner from Aston Workshop as a project car, showing a mileage reading of 7,310 which is believed to be correct. The chassis number is listed as V8, some confusion arises where the Aston Martin factory decided to use up the stock of David Brown DBS V8 badges, consequently they are often wrongly referred to as a DBS because of the external badging. The car then underwent a three year restoration carried out by Roda Classics in Portugal, which is a non-profit-making garage belonging to Mr. Carlos Antunes (Ex-CEO of Renault Peugeot) who takes on rebuilds/restorations of some the most fastidious of collectors around the world by invitation only. The cars are rebuilt part by part to an exacting standard under his stewardship. The body was taken off and renewed where required, the chassis was fully rebuilt with all corrosion removed, all mechanical parts renewed or rebuilt as required, electrical components renewed and refurbished, this is confirmed by the invoices for the parts supplied. The car was then repainted in Antrim Blue (the original colour was white) and re-trimmed to complete the restoration. The full body off restoration is supported by a build book of images along with invoices for the parts supplied by the Aston Workshop.

    • ModelCobra 427 S/C by Contemporary,USA
    • FE Cat descThe Contemporary Classic Motor Company was set up in 1978 by Peter Bayer in Mamaroneck, New York State, USA and his reproduction of the legendary Shelby Cobra 427 was regarded by many as the finest replica of the marque because of the accuracy of the bodywork, its round-tube chassis and the overall quality of the engineering and general construction. This 1996 427 S/C (Semi-Competition), Contemporary recreation was built to order for Liam Howlett of The Prodigy off the back of the bands biggest hit ‘Firestarter’. Powered by a genuine Shelby licensed 427c.i, V8 and running four twin-choke downdraft Weber carburettors in the GT40 configuration, this car conservatively puts out over 400hp with the potential to tune higher. Power is driven to the rear wheels through a four-speed ‘Toploader’ gearbox with correct Halibrand wheels and Goodridge Cobra tyres. Beautifully presented, this rare righthand drive car boasts all the original details such as correct anti-clockwise speedometer, windscreen, radiator fans and other trim fittings. Howlett reportedly wanted the ultimate Contemporary Cobra and the cost was a secondary consideration. The car as a result has fully adjustable suspension, stainless steel manifolds with S/C style side exit exhaust and rack and pinion steering, making this the definitive recreation S/C Cobra. The car comes supplied with a V5C registration document and MoT test certificate valid until September 2020. Its history file includes an extensive compilation of invoices from works done over the years as well as a full build sheet. It was also featured on the front cover of the UK Cobra Club’s Snake Torque magazine in February 1997. For the ultimate Cobra experience without the million pound price tag, look no further.

    • Model250 SE
    • FE Cat descThis model was first shown at Frankfurt in 1965 and this S-Class Mercedes-Benz range was outwardly distinguishable from preceding models by a sleeker bodyshell with lower roof and waistlines and an increased glass area creating a very attractive Coupé style. All models featured similar all-independent suspension as well as four-wheel disc brakes and power-assisted steering. However, although the saloon used this ‘New Generation’ bodyshell, the Coupé and Cabriolet kept the timelessly elegant coachwork that had debuted back in 1960. The 250 SE used a fuel-injected version of Mercedes-Benz’s new, overhead-camshaft, 2,496cc engine which developed 150bhp. There was a choice of either four-speed manual or automatic transmissions, while the rear suspension featured Mercedes-Benz’s hydro-pneumatic compensating spring. Today all examples of these classic Coupés and Cabriolets are highly sought after.. This nice original example, once owned by the well-known journalist and television broadcaster Sir David Frost, is presented in gold with a black interior and has been maintained over the last six years by Mercedes-Benz specialist Colin Ferns Ltd near Richmond, Surrey. This elegant and sought after model is powered by the smooth 2.5 litre engine mated to an automatic gearbox, providing effortless touring capabilities which these Mercedes-Benz were famed for. Accompanying the car is a current V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate which is valid until March 2020. The boot space has more than adequate luggage room for modern travel and in this wonderful original condition, one can certainly use it everyday as indeed it was intended when first manufactured. Please note that the private registration number is being retained and a new age related one is in the process of being obtained from the DVLA.

    • ModelSilver Seraph
    • FE Cat desc* REDUCED ESTIMATE * Majesty typifies the Seraph. It is, quite simply, the best. If you are looking for the most comfort, the best understated innovation and the sort of performance that will transport its passengers, without fuss or drama, to their destination and arrive in a better mood than when they set off, then Rolls-Royce has always been the answer and when the Silver Seraph appeared in 1998, this model was no exception. Motive force came from the BMW V12 unit, 5.3 litres and more power than you will ever need. Build quality was noted, at the time, as better than ever before with a fully galvanized chassis and Connolly leather with burr walnut throughout the cabin. This supreme gentleman’s motorcar present in Rolls-Royce silver with black Connolly leather interior, matching carpets and burr walnut picnic trays to the rear. Originally a cancelled order to the Sultan of Brunei, it comes, unsurprisingly, well equipped with a fully comprehensive history and document file, the most recent service showing new brake pads and sensors. Fitted, as you would expect with air-conditioning, a multi-function steering wheel and a discreet cd system in the armrest, this, last of the Crewe-built Rolls-Royces, is in excellent condition throughout and represents incredibly good value.

    • ModelSL 500 Roadster
    • FE Cat descFollowing the resounding success of the R107, the R129 Mercedes-Benz SL had a rather tough act to follow, as it still had to carry on the tradition of a fast and reliable grand touring convertible. The advantage designers had with the R129 was technology. By the time the final car rolled off the production line in 1989, these earlier models had been in production for 18 years with very little change. Therefore, the SL 500 featured many new and innovative ideas, such as controlled electronic damping, automatically expanding roll-over bar and a more modern multi link rear axle. In addition to this was a fully operating electric roof, windows, door mirrors and seats, which made this model easy and comfortable to operate. The new SL also boasted a more powerful engine and the stopping power was aided by anti-locking braking for added reassurance. Originally supplied by Mercedes-Benz in Woking on 18th April 1996, this SL 500 is in good order throughout and is described by the vendor as driving with no known faults. With only one previous owner, a host of invoices and the original service book, this has clearly been a well looked after example. These are well equipped vehicles with electric memory seats, heated seats, air conditioning, power roof and smoothness from the 4973cc V12 engine that has to be experienced to be appreciated. Offered for sale with a V5C registration document together with a full years MoT test certificate, this SL 500 offers exceptional value.

    • ModelLoyus Cortina Mk. II
    • FE Cat descThe second incarnation of the Cortina was designed by Roy Haynes and was launched on 18th October, 1966. Following on from the enormous success of the Lotus Cortina Mk. I, Ford introduced the Cortina-Lotus Mk. II in 1967 with the famous Lotus twin-cam engine now giving 109bhp. Ford renamed the Lotus version the Cortina-Lotus due to its manufacture at Ford's Dagenham plant in Essex. This came about through their move from Cheshunt to Hethel in 1966. As an aside, the well-known stripe that adorns the Ford Cortina-Lotus models was never applied by the factory and was made a dealer option only. This example was built in June 1969 and registered on 16th March, 1970. As such, this is one of the last of its type. At the time Ford were beginning to refer to these cars as the Cortina Twin Cam, however the build code for this car confirms it was built a righthand drive manual car, in a Lotus specification factory build shell and painted in Ermine White with black trim which it is still found in today. This is a much more refined car than the Mk. I and thus more useable and friendly yet still fast and reliable. A car well-known to the Lotus Cortina Owner's Club network, this example has been driven by Andy Morrell and he knows the car reasonably well. We are informed that it has been maintained mechanically regardless of cost and remains largely original with little sign of any significant restoration and good panel fit. Modifications have been kept sensible with a Kenlowe fan, electronic ignition and modern brake servo fitted. The impressive history file details that the car had a full engine rebuild by Rapier Services in 2002 and, we are informed, it is still fitted with most of the period parts such as the radio and jack. Contained within the history is a detailed report as to the history of the car dating back to 1970, the file also includes plenty full invoices, previous MoT test certificates and photographs of the engine rebuild coupled with ownership details. Although not required, our vendor insists he will obtain a new MoT test certificate for the sale and he stresses, although not a concours show winner, this is a fabulous Mk. II Cortina, priced sensibly and represents an opportunity to acquire an iconic piece of motoring history.

The Pininfarina designed GT version of the model was launched in 1965 sporting a hatchback and a rear bench seat. The famous British motor engineer Ken Costello saw the possibility of fitting the larger 3528cc Rover engine into the MG B GT. No significant changes were required to the original model as the new V8 engine weighed 40 pounds lighter than the four cylinder iron block engine it replaced. Originally registered in 1974, this well presented, one owner, MG B V8 is finished in gold with a black interior. This chrome bumper car comes with an extensive history file showing a photographic restoration and engine rebuild. These V8 engined coupés are both flexible and ideally suited to touring. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, this MoT test exempt MG B has provided years of enjoyment and with the right care should continue to do so for many more.

    • ModelXJ6 Series I
    • FE Cat descLaunched in September 1968, the Jaguar XJ6 was the last model that Sir William Lyons had a, hands-on, input into the design. This new model was the result of several years of development and streamlined the extensive portfolio of models offered by Jaguar at the time. This new, reasonably priced car, managed to retain the principles of earlier Jaguars but offered a new level of driveability and safety. It created such a desire that second-hand models were achieving higher prices than new cars on dealership forecourts. These early models have outstanding ability and are considered by many enthusiasts as the purist form of Sir William Lyons’ design. This exceptional, magazine featured, early XJ6 was manufactured at Browns Lane on 8th December, 1969 and was supplied initially to an engineering company based in Wolverhampton which is still trading today. An invoice for the sale of the car from 1970 for £2,468 is present in the history file. Finished in the period correct colour of Jaguar Light Blue with dark blue Connolly leather interior, the car still retains all its early production features including chrome dials, straight exhaust pipe finishers, small rear lights, the simple battery carrier and attached washer bottle, wheel trims and the original carpets. Servicing was initially conducted by the Jaguar factory service department but since 2000 it has been entrusted to Jaguar authorised retailers based in the Edinburgh area. All the invoices for this work are present in the extensive vehicle history file. In addition, the engine was restored in 1997 by VSE in Wales. This work is also recorded with a copy of the invoice and engine 'hot test' report. It has covered only 10,000 miles since the completion of this work.

    • ModelDB4 Series III Superleggera
    • FE Cat descAston Martin’s DB4,in production from October 1958 to June 1963, was truly a race bred and had an international pedigree, with engine design by the Polish Tadek Marek, coachwork design by Touring of Milan and all-British chassis design by Harold Beach. The 3670cc engine of the new car had first appeared in 1956, a six-cylinder, twin overhead camshaft, all alloy engine as raced in the Works DBR2. The new DB4 debuted at the 1958 London Motor Show to widespread acclaim and, under test, had a top speed of around 140mph. It offered a mighty impressive 0-60mph time of just 9.3 seconds and wound up to 100mph in 20.1 seconds, stopping from that speed in a gravity-defying 10 seconds. In 1961, the DB4 was the most expensive Aston Martin model yet selling, with purchase tax, at £4,172, the price of a very good detached house. The Superleggera system allowed a chassis space-frame of light steel tube with the alloy body fitted directly onto it. It was expensive because no alternative was available and Touring`s patent was enforced aggressively. The result was a very light, high-performance luxury coupé. Beautiful, very fast but not cheap. This evocative and stunning, matching numbers example, was offered for sale originally by Brooklands of Bond Street, London in April 1961. It is finished in stunning dark Gunmetal and still retains its original red leather interior which is in lovely condition, exuding the patina all Aston owners wish for. The engine was completely stripped and rebuilt by Marksdanes Restorations, Somerset in 1994 where they also carried out a considerable amount of other work, copies of all the invoices for these works can be found within the history file. The car is currently French registered and the present owner had the car inspected by Haute De France Expertise in 2017, when they commented that 'this Aston Martin was in very good order'. A full report of the inspection can also be found in the history file, albeit in French. These Series III models are sought after, particularly when presented in this condition, retaining some of its original patina, which is rare and always desirable when one is searching for the elusive investment DB Aston Martin. This beautiful DB4 comes with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, tools and manuals. Stunning and elegant, this particular example would grace any collection or simply driven, as intended.

    • ModelLiberty Special
    • FE Cat descA standard Minerva will not win Le Mans, Goodwood or the Venasco Silver Flag in Italy. It won’t shine at Pebble Beach or Monterey. But, and this is a big 27 litre but, if the body is replaced with a totally bespoke aluminium one and the engine is swopped with a Liberty aircraft unit with fire-spitting exhausts that require a health and safety personage complete with fire extinguisher just in case the grass catches fire, it might just. So, the Minerva story begins in 1883 in Belgium with Sylvain de Jong manufacturing bicycles and then cycle cars and motocyclettes, as indeed so many of his peers did. But it was his engines that drove the business. They were exported around the world and, by 1904, finally, car production took over with the Société Anonyme Minerva Motors in Antwerp. Interestingly, Charles Rolls was the first Minerva dealer in the UK selling the 2.9 litre, 14hp model. Sporting successes continued with the new double sleeve valve engines in the Austrian Alpine Trials and Swedish Winter Trials. Customers for the Minerva would include kings of Belgium, Sweden and Norway as well as Henry Ford and the impressionist artist, Anna Boch. During WWII, production continued in secret with cars used for hit and run attacks against the Germans with rifle fire and light machine guns on open topped vehicles. Post-war, luxury cars were exported not only to Europe but to the US as well. The quality was good and much appreciated, especially by the buyers of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars right through to the 1930’s when it was bought out and sadly dismantled. The thing about aero engined cars is that they are not easy to put together. First of all, they are massive, then they require fitting to relatively conventional, earth-bound motorcars and driving them is like riding a bull with a chilli jockstrap. The heritage is undeniable, almost all land speed records, right back to the early days of ‘Babs’, Bluebird and the Railton at our very own Brooklands, all made use of aircraft engines. And the same is true here. Liberty made engines for many different aircraft, even selling their units to other manufacturers at the time. There were many variations as time went on with their flexible engines also finding homes in Cruiser, Cavalier and Centaur tanks both in the US and UK, even replacing the Rolls-Royce Merlin in some cases. So we have a well-built chassis and an engine with proven reliability, it seems only a matter of time before someone put two and two together. The ladder frame from the Minerva 20CV accepted the Nuffield Liberty Mk. II engine from a decommissioned tank. The axles, both front and rear remained the same as did the differential. The front suspension was rebuilt to accommodate the additional engine weight with custom rollers and clamps. The rear springs remained as de Jong intended. Due to the extra weight, jacking should be executed with care and from the axles only. The wheels are 21”, 4½J rims, powder coated wires with a centre spline and new Blockleys all round, including the spare. Stopping made use of drum brakes all round upgraded to a hydraulic master cylinder. The meat in the sandwich, of course, is this 27 litre, Liberty engine pushing out 400hp at the flywheel; it is an open-tappet, V12 model with an aluminium crankcase and dry sump lubrication. Feeding this leviathan are twin Solex carburettors with six short (61mm o/d) exhausts each side and exiting straight down. Coming out the other way, power is met with a Liberty flywheel and a step-up gearbox leading to a US-built Tramec manual gearbox with five forward and one reverse gear. The original Minerva gearbox is included within the spares package. Cooling is helped by a large, re-cored, classic brass radiator and electric fan. Lighting takes the form of Type RB50 headlamps fitted with Bentley Mk. VI reflectors (original un-restored reflectors included) with rubber ‘Diver’s Helmet’ units to the rear. On top has settled a completely bespoke and hand-crafted aluminium body. The last, but one, owner created the rear end of the car with the vender building the front cowl section and starter motor apron. Cooling was a problem so the vendor also crafted louvres down both sides of the bonnet and side panels. The steering column was also rebuilt as well as the steering wheel to include new taper and keyway. A new dash was also fashioned with re-furbished Smiths and Jaeger instruments, the rev. counter red-lining at 2,000rpm! Sitting inside has been well-considered, the ’Roi de Belge’ style bucket seats use Connolly leather and all dials and switchgear is within easy reach. It needs to be. Looking down the bonnet, your attention is focused on an original Minerva mascot in superb condition. The starting procedure for this bespoke motorcar is not difficult but must be followed. After turning the oil tap on at the rear, switch on power to arm the system. Next, turn on the four ignition switches, these control the four coils which, in turn, lead to two sparking plugs per cylinder, six cylinders, two banks. Now press the starter for 10 seconds circulating oil around the bearings, this sounds like a jet engine winding up. Turn on the two petrol pumps filling the carburettors (nearly there), pull out the choke, retard the ignition and press the starter button. There will now be 12 explosions, then 12 more and this process will continue. Push the choke almost all the way back in and the engine will settle into what aviation engineers call ‘an idle’. We mere mortals call it an incredible, deafening noise that will weaken all but the sturdiest of bowels. Handbrakes off, into first and off you go. There is no getting around the fact that this weighs probably in excess of two tonnes but, once underway as we noticed during our photography session, it quickly became graceful and a relatively nimble creature to drive. Avoid built-up areas as you will leave a wake of car alarms in your trail but on the open road and through the be-hedged lanes of rural Kent, it is a delight although with a firm hand at the tiller. It will overshadow any other car in your collection and occupy pole position at any car show, concours event or gathering of like-minded motoring enthusiasts. Turn up to the local pub in this and you’ll not need to buy a drink ever again. There is only Minerva Liberty Special and only one chance to acquire it.

    • Model911S Targa
    • FE Cat descThe original Porsche 911, with its famous and durable design, was introduced in the Autumn of 1963 and built until 1989. From its inception, the 911 was modified both by private racing teams and the Porsche factory itself for racing, rallying and other competitions. The original 911 series is often cited as the most successful sports/racing car ever, especially when its variations included the powerful 911 derived 935 which won Le Mans, as well as other major sports cars races. In 1967, Porsche introduced the 911T model and subsequently a 911E version, however the 911S was the most desirable and with only 3,174 Porsche 911S's manufactured, good quality surviving examples are rare and highly collectable. This original, low mileage and well preserved classic, fuel injected, Porsche 911 2.7 S is finished in vibrant red coachwork together with a beautiful black interior and red stitching. The car had been lovingly owned, from new, by Captain Bob Stanell in California, due to ill health he sold his collection in late 2015. Presented with just 35,521 miles on the odometer and accompanied by a comprehensively stamped and original service booklet, this car was snapped up by our vendor who wanted a dry, rust free, low mileage example for his collection, thus OBA 598P found its way to the leafy Surrey suburbs. Our vendor has since lavished circa £15,000 with specialist Eporsch in Bisley, Surrey, predominantly on mechanical work which enabled the car to be returned to European specification and included a top end engine rebuild. All invoices for the work can be found within the cars history file which also includes the invoice for the most recent service in November 2017. This example is a true reflection of its low mileage and, indeed, is a very desirable 911S. The interior is as new and the targa roof has been restored. The car represents a genuine collectors example competitively priced with fabulous coachwork. Guide Price £34,000 - £42,000

    • Model190E 2.5 16V Cosworth
    • FE Cat descIn 1983, Mercedes-Benz introduced the Cosworth 2.3 16V into their range and the new 16 valve cars were substantially different from the other 190 models. The body kit reduced the drag coefficient and the steering wheel was smaller than that on other 190s, whilst the fuel tank was enlarged to 70 litres. The Getrag five-speed, manual gearbox was unique to the 16 valve and featured a 'dog-leg' first gear. An enlarged 2.5 litre engine replaced the 2.3 in 1988 and offered double-row timing chains to fix the unreliable single chains on the early 2.3s. The power output was up by 17bhp with a slight increase in torque. It is debated whether the 2.5 engine was developed and built by Mercedes-Benz or by Cosworth! Interestingly, they were not keen to broadcast the fact that their most sporting saloon car had an engine developed by a British company. The suspension on the 16 valve models is very different from the standard 190 and as well as being lower and stiffer, it has larger anti-roll bars, harder bushes and hydraulic self-levelling suspension on the rear allowing the rear ride-height to remain constant even when the car is fully loaded. This lovely example is presented in Smoke Silver with black half Houndstooth cloth interior. It comes with electric windows, electric seats, cruise control and air conditioning. This desirable Mercedes-Benz has been in storage for about nine years and was recommissioned in 2018 by the present owner who installed new injectors, rotor arm and distributor. These models were great to drive quickly, providing lively performance with subtle brutish looks and the addition of that usual German quality of engineering.

    • ModelS2 Saloon
    • FE Cat descThe Bentley S2 Saloon and Continental models all received a shot in the arm in 1959 when introduced at London Motor Show, the Rolls-Royce/Bentley straight-six engine was replaced by an all-new aluminium V8 unit. The more muscular engine, producing approximately 200bhp, was designed primarily to deliver more torque, but it also allowed the company to deliver a product more in tune with its rivals in export markets. Of course, there were many rumours as to what the origins of the V8 engine were but Rolls-Royce always maintained it was an entirely in-house effort. As before, the Bentley S2 was a badge-engineered Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II and was built to the same standards and luxury. The 6230cc unit installed in the S2 was smoothly powerful and transformed the Bentley into a grand tourer capable of running silently at speed all day long. Power steering was improved in the S2 but the General Motors automatic gearbox was the same as its predecessor and in fact Rolls-Royce continued to use the gearbox until the introduction of the Silver Shadow. This excellent 1960 Bentley S2 Saloon was supplied new by Mann Edgerton of Bury St. Edmunds to the Hon. J.P. Philipps of Dalham Hall, Newmarket in Suffolk. Recently it has been the subject to a chassis-up restoration, returning it to near new condition by Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialists P.F. Autos of Stoke-on-Trent. We are informed the car looks and smells as new with the only deviation from standard being the fitment of a stainless steel exhaust system, air conditioning and modern internals to the radio. Finished in the original colour scheme of Tudor grey with magnolia leather interior and beige carpets, this car was recently purchased by a specialist film vehicle hire company to feature in the new Walt Disney film, ‘Artemis Fowl’, which will be released in the Spring of 2020. Artemis Fowl is based on the first novel, in the series, by Eoin Colfer about a boy genius who discovers a subterranean fairy world and directed by Kenneth Branagh. This stunning S2 is supplied with a V5 registration document, a set of Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club supplied chassis cards, a file containing some invoices and a photo album containing a record of the chassis-up restoration. The MoT test certificate history shows that this car has covered very little mileage since 2012 and the recent restoration. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully restored Bentley S2 for a fraction of the cost of the restoration.

    • ModelCobra 427 by Dax
    • FE Cat descFounded in 1968, the Dax Cobra has steadily established itself as a much sought after classic sports car in its own right. John Tojeiro, the original designer of the AC Ace chassis became a director of the company and the car was renamed the Dax Tojeiro. The hugely charismatic Dax 427 has since remained the undisputed market leader for more than 25 years. The cars enduring popularity owes much to Dax's policy of continual product improvement and painstaking attention to detail. A philosophy that has clearly shaped every aspect of today's Dax 427. From its state of the art technical specification, top quality composite body and sumptuous leather interior to its deep-dished Halibrand style wheels, trademark stainless steel side pipe exhausts and low, wide, purposeful stance. For many years now the clear customer favourite has been the small-block Chevrolet V8, perhaps due to its competitive price and wide choice of power outputs. It's no exaggeration to say that the car amazes all that go out in it, harnessing the power of the V8 with consummate ease and providing levels of grip, composure and ride comfort that simply have to be experienced to be believed. Even Jonathon Palmer was heard to say, "Wow, that's just staggering!" when taking the new demonstrator for a few laps around Brands Hatch, great praise indeed from an ex-Formula One driver. This simply fantastic example is presented in the iconic Cobra blue with racing stripes. It is fitted with the only engine to be found in a Cobra, the Chevrolet 383c.i., 6.3 litre, V8 engine. Naturally this example sounds fantastic and will give you goosebumps. It was first registered on 1st August, 2014 and has since covered just over 5,000 miles with its single owner since completion. Contained within the history file is an MoT test certificate valid until July 2020 and a comprehensive collection of invoices relating to the cars build which includes many from Dax for what was clearly a no expense spared build philosophy. The present owner was meticulous in sourcing this car and making sure that it represents an original 427 Mk. III Cobra. The result is simply stunning and would put a smile on anyone's face.

    • Model2000 GTV
    • FE Cat descThe Giulia 105 series coupe was first shown to the motoring press on 9th September, 1963, at the new Arese works in Milan and was mechanically based on the TI saloon (Berlina). Known as the Sprint GT, later versions were introduced that included the GT Veloce and 1750 GTV. June 1971 saw the replacement of the 1750 GTV with the 2000 GTV, the new model being presented at Gardone. A larger displacement engine of 1962cc in the new 2000 GTV saw power increase over its predecessor that now gave 132bhp and a top speed of more than 120mph. The greater low speed torque and larger flexibility at higher revs is a feature of this 2.0 litre capacity engine. Externally a new horizontal front grill incorporated the Alfa shield and the rear wing line was revised giving a slightly sleeker look, green cloverleaf badges adorned the rear pillars and the rear light clusters were enlarged. The interior trim was revised with velour cloth material for the seats and the instruments were grouped into one cluster to enable easier and quicker scanning of the instruments. Production ceased in 1976. This example started life in Germany, was subsequently exported to Madrid and imported by the current owner and registered in the UK on 15th November 2016. The coachwork finished in Azzurro Gabbiano metallic and sits upon a set of GTA replica alloy wheels shod with a set of tyres recently fitted. On further inspection, the undersides look very good whilst the upper coachwork is also in very good order with particular note given to the excellent panel gaps. The interior headlining, tan seats, door cards and carpets present very well indeed. Although this year of manufacture is MoT test exempt, the vendor assures us, that this 2000 GTV will arrive at the sale with a current and valid MoT test certificate. A small history file accompanies this Alfa Romeo and includes invoices of recent works having been carried out and its UK V5 registration document. These capable Bertone coupés, with their twin overhead cam engines, five-speed gearboxes and disc brakes on all four corners, are as beautiful and popular as ever and will surely stay that way in the eyes of any classic car or Alfa Romeo fan.

    • Model340 Saloon to Mk. II Specification
    • FE Cat descThe Jaguar Mk. II perhaps needs little introduction, especially to the Jaguar enthusiast or follower. Introduced in 1959 in 2.4 litre form, the Mk. II Saloon was somewhat underpowered and soon gained the larger 3.4 litre unit. As if this was not enough, the engine further gained capacity with growth to 3.8 litres that produced a healthy 220bhp. These 3.8 litre models are now the most sought after of the range and especially when they are fitted with the manual overdrive gearbox option. Presented in Opalescent Silver, this 3.8 litre Jaguar started life in March 1968 as a 3.4 litre, 340 saloon with the benefit of the manual overdrive gearbox. It was first registered in Ireland before being repatriated and registered in the UK in September 1974. In 1987, it underwent an extensive rebuild by specialists in Germany and since then has had little use, with only 10,000 miles being covered since that restoration. At some time, prior to 2002, it gained a 3.8 litre engine and the larger Mk. II bumpers. Since 2002, this Jaguar has only been used during the summer months and, we are advised, it has always been garaged during this period. Since 2015, it has also benefitted from a rebuilt cylinder head, new oil filter spin off, new clutch and slave cylinder, new water pump, fan and a rebuilt radiator. Our vendor who has fastidiously cared for this car which was already in stunning condition when he purchased it, has won Jaguar Drivers Club event awards since and has also treated the car to a new carpet set, stainless heat shield and exhaust and had the whole engine bay fully detailed. The coachwork presents well with only a few minor blemishes, this is a testament to the standard of the restoration and recent ownership. The red leather interior is in fine condition as is the woodwork which is a prominent feature of the marque. A welcome additional benefit is the fully operating folding sunroof with wind deflector for those sunny days. With Mk. II values being somewhat buoyant in today's market place, this fine Jaguar is offered with a very reasonable and tempting estimate.

The two cars received universal praise as a nimble fun-to-drive sports car. The only real criticism being that they were slightly under powered, the first revision, ‘B’, sought to answer this by the addition of a 110bhp high compression twin carburettor 1.6 litre engine but Fiat, in their wisdom, ‘softened’ the suspension and changed the cars personality. This did not please everybody however, in answer, the third and final revision ‘C’, saw a return to the original and tighter suspension set-up so the car finally had both the power and handling to match. The present owner bought this car from a dealer friend of his in Perugia having originally gone to see a Fiat Dino coupé. Whilst looking the rest of his stock, he spotted this. It looked quite unremarkable to start with but the more he looked, the more interested he became. The shut lines were perfect and all the panels were straight, a closer inspection revealed perfect wheel arches still showing the original factory spot welds. The underside was completely original as well. So this is a third 'C' series car, registered on 12th October, 1973. Full Gold Plate ASI registered, this car has had three owners, the second keeping it until 2013a and spending all its life in the warm and dry Perugia region of Italy. The immaculate and original interior is an unusual grey with red check, it has also been specified with the unique Cromodora CD68 alloy wheels. It also has a set of 7" Cromodora type 66 alloy wheels, as on the Ferrari Dino, available separately. The engine is in excellent condition and fires up instantly, sounding crisp with rapid throttle response, excellent oil pressure and not a whiff of blue smoke! The gearbox is light and quick with no noise or synchromesh baulking. In its original Rosso Sierra paintwork, the body is factory original throughout, rust and accident free. The paint has been refreshed at some point to a good standard with no overspray or poor masking evident and just one or two stone chips. It retains all its original features, the doors open and shut easily and fit perfectly, no slamming needed. It has had seat covers and floor mats from new which are retained with the car. Everything works, even the clock. It also comes with its original carpet, full toolkit, jack and alloy spare wheel with serviceable tyre. This charming example is UK registered with a 12 month MoT test certificate.

    • ModelSilver Shadow I
    • FE Cat descThe 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 stunning example, presented in metallic Willow Gold with a full black leather trim, was first registered on 14th November, 1975. In 2016, this example was subject to a comprehensive restoration my marque specialists, Mark Taylor Rolls-Royce and Bentley Ltd. of Chichester, West Sussex to the tune of £33,500. Contained within the history file is a full invoice from Mark Taylor detailing the works, several old MoT test certificates documenting the low mileage and the invoice for a full repaint. The chromework is excellent as is the interior trim and wood cappings. The inside of this Rolls-Royce is truly a wonderful place to sit whether driver or passenger. The present owner informs us that the car has been serviced when necessary and performs excellently. A Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow in this condition is a rare thing and, with such low mileage, this is genuinely a collectors example of the ever popular majestic British classic. Offered at a sensible estimate and presented in such splendour, viewing of this example is highly recommended.

    • ModelMini Cooper S (1275cc)
    • FE Cat descTo many, its designer Alec Issigonis included, the notion that the Mini might have a future as anything other than basic transport was anathema, and the idea of a high-performance version was laughable. One man though, saw it quite differently. Racing car manufacturer John Cooper already knew quite a bit about tuning BMC's A-Series engine, he was running the company's Formula Junior effort at the time and a test drive in a prototype Mini convinced him of the car's competition potential. The result, launched in September 1961, was the Mini Cooper, a car that offered a size/price/performance package that was nothing short of miraculous. The Mini Cooper soon established its credentials as a rally and race winner and the stage was set for even faster versions. The first of these, the 1,071cc Mini Cooper 'S' of 1963, took engine development a stage further and provided the basis for the 971 'S' and 1275 'S' of 1964, all of which now have cult status and are hugely collectable. This fabulous example is presented in the iconic and instantly recognisable colour combination of red with a white roof, emulating that of rally hero, Paddy Hopkirk’s famous Monte Carlo winning Rally Mini Cooper S of 1964. This car has had no expense spared in completely rebuilding it to Group B rally specification, even down to the last detail. This includes a Downtown tuned/prepared 1275 cc engine, twin set of TAG Heuer Trackmate stopwatches, Smiths instrumentation, spot light on the roof, a Halda Twinmaster trip computer for competition purposes, two Sparco Pro 2000 FIA Seats race/rally seats with harness seatbelts, twin fuel tanks, Angus Fire Rally System fully plumbed with internal/external activation and a full roll cage. The present owner has competed in a number of historic rallies in the UK and this vehicle is presented with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate. A great little ‘pocket rocket’ which can be entered into classic rallies, hillclimbs, sprints or just to use on the road. Superb!

    • ModelFlaminia GT by Touring of Milan
    • FE Cat descThe Lancia Flaminia was launched in 1957 and was the replacement for the Aurelia. It was available throughout its production as a saloon (Berlina), coupé, and cabriolet. The hand-crafted, aluminium bodied cabriolet, GT and GTL coupés from Touring of Milan were considerably more expensive than the Berlina models but the designs epitomised the style and design flair of the finest motoring designers of their time. With double wishbones, coil springs and shock absorbers featuring on the new model, the car’s performance was nimble and the ride comfort was superior against many of its rivals. The Flaminia’s engine was a continuation of the Aurelia power unit and world’s first production V6. Mounted longitudinally, the power was delivered via a rear mounted four-speed transaxle. We are pleased to offer this 1959 example of the Touring built Flaminia GT that was originally supplied to Libya as a 2500cc GT that same year. The car was subsequently imported into the UK in August 1970. Today, this Lancia presents very well. In 2010, the Flaminia was completely stripped and shipped to Omicron, the renowned Lancia specialists who carried out a comprehensive body/chassis rebuild, ensuring all shut lines were perfectly fitted. The coachwork was finished to a high standard in Lancia Lord Blue and is beautifully complemented by the striking red interior. Under the current ownership, the aim was to make a reliable long distance touring car. A 2.8 litre engine and transaxle replaced the original 2.5 litre, V6 engine and transaxle; the original units are included and will be available to be collected from the vendor by a new owner. The vendor informs us that the 2.8 litre engine has been rebuilt by Brian Randall Engineering and is virtually indistinguishable from the original unit and provides extra torque, a benefit whilst long distance touring. Further works have included; Koni adjustable shock absorbers, wiring loom, steering joints, overhauled brake calipers, brake servo, copper brake pipes, flexible brake hoses, clutch, a reupholstered interior including correct coloured carpets and red leather seats, headlining and new window rubbers. In addition, the triple Weber carburettors were serviced and balanced by Omicron whilst new stainless steel items included an exhaust and bumpers front and rear. This Flaminia GT has been well and sympathetically maintained and comes with an extensive file of works and parts. Also included is a UK V5 registration document and Libyan papers from its early life. In 2018, this Flaminia completed the Fourges Brittany rally and was exhibited at the 'Classics by the Lake' meeting where it received the best post-war award. Since 1970, when the Flaminia was imported into the UK, it has only covered in the region of 2,000 miles. Flaunted by the rich and famous during the 1950s and 1960s, these handcrafted grand tourers are still very capable motor cars today. Imagine touring the Côte d’Azur, what a breeze!

    • ModelSprite Mk. I 'Frogeye'
    • FE Cat descThe 1958 Austin-Healey Sprite was announced to the motoring press in Monte Carlo on 20thMay 1958 and just prior to the Monaco Grand Prix. Designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, the car came under the BMC umbrella with production being carried out at the MG works at Abingdon in Oxfordshire. Its specifications were basic and involved there being no exterior door handles, the driver and passenger were required to reach inside to open the door; access to the spare wheel and luggage compartment was achieved by tilting the seat-backs forward and reaching under the rear deck. This cost cutting exercise kept the price down to £669. Power was supplied by a 948cc OHV (overhead valve) engine derived from the Morris Minor and Austin A35. The cute looks led to it soon being known as the Frogeye in the UK and Bugeye in the US. Its nickname derived from the headlights prominently mounted on top of the bonnet and inboard of the front wings. The example offered today has been in its current ownership since 2015. The coachwork presents very well in Leaf Green and is complemented by the lovely green leather and upholstery. This Sprite underwent an extensive restoration during the 1990s and still looks very good today, a testament, no doubt, to the quality of the workmanship at that time. For ease of starting and reliability, an electric fuel pump has been fitted. Apart from that, everything is pretty standard; it even boasts its original steel bonnet. There is a complete set of weather equipment including hood, tonneau cover and side screens. The history file contains its original buff log book, Driver’s Handbook, various invoices, old MoT test certificates, photographic record of the rebuild, magazine articles, parts catalogues, an Austin-Healey Service Parts List, a workshop manual and its current V5 registration document. Interestingly, there is also a period Austin Magazine dated May 1961 priced at 9p. This is a lovely example of a Mk. I Sprite and will be surely enjoyed in and around the country lanes.

    • ModelF100 Pick-Up
    • FE Cat descWith a production run that has lasted more 70 years, the F range can be described as phenomenally successful. Of all the 13 generations it is the third which was on sale between 1957 and 1960 and that is arguably the most interesting F series of all. Not just because it stylistically links the old with the new but because it mix of curves and straight-line functionality looks so cool. This F1 100 ‘Rat Rod’ is fitted with a modern 5.0 litre V8 engine. It is described by the vendor as having 'lots' of power and from the sound of it, we believe him. Fitted with power steering and upgraded brakes, the vendor also informs us that this pick-up is a tremendous amounts of fun to drive. The painted on ‘rust’ effect bodywork confirms this trucks 'wolf in sheep's clothing' status. Offered for sale with a V5C registration document this classic pick-up would look superb at one of the many American classic car shows.

    • 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.

    • ModelEscort XR3i ‘Rattlesnake’
    • FE Cat descThe Ford Escort is a small family car that was manufactured from 1968 to 2004 and was produced in six different model derivatives. The fourth version of the Ford Escort was launched in March 1986, with only a small number of changes over its predecessor. Optional new features included a mechanical anti‐lock braking system (standard on RS Turbo models), a fuel computer on fuel-injected models and a heated windscreen. These changes were welcome at a time when the Escort was faced with a host of new competitors; General Motors had brought out a new version of the Vauxhall Astra 18 months earlier, shortly after Volkswagen had introduced the Mk. II Golf. As well as an all-new interior, a new derivative of the CVH engine was introduced, as well as numerous suspension tweaks to address the long-standing criticisms of the Escort's handling and ride quality. In 1988 Ford developed electronic fuel injection system replacing the Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system in the XR3i. Originally registered on 1st August 1988, this Escort is number two of 25 vehicles. With the ‘Rattlesnake’ body kit supplied by Fibretechnics, it was fitted by Dagenham Motors who were responsible for christening the car, the RS1900. This 31 year old example has had six keepers in total and the mileage of 35,042 appears to be correct although not warranted. The black coachwork is in very good order as is the grey velour trim. Sitting proud, sounding great and looking superb, this Escort XR3i ‘Rattlesnake’ is a very rare and highly desirable example. Supplied with a V5C registration document, a full years MoT test certificate, together with some invoices, this is an opportunity to purchase one of Dagenham’s’ finest limited edition models.

    • ModelD-Type Evocation by Revival Motorsport
    • FE Cat descThese fabulous sports cars were designed specifically to win the Le Mans 24 hour race and were produced between 1954 and 1957. Sharing the straight six XK engine and many mechanical components with its C-Type predecessor, the structure however was radically different. Innovative monocoque construction and aerodynamic efficiency integrated aviation technology in a sports car produced a winning combination. The Jaguar D-Type will be forever etched in our minds as world beaters in the golden era of motorsport when the likes of Mike Hawthorn and Duncan Hamilton piloted these machines to victory back in the 1950s beating, specifically the works Ferrari team to the annoyance of Enzo himself. This Revival Motorsport Jaguar D-Type Evocation was originally built by Mr. John Arnold and his team between 2001/2002, it is one of a very small number built for a gentleman's race series and bears the chassis number 002. Theses D-Types were based on the original 50's Jaguar D-Type but with John Arnold's experience with Jaguar competition cars, this allowed Revival to produce a replica that retained all the character of the original but with the durability, reliability and handling of a modern day car. A composite body clothes a tubular chassis with wishbone suspension and coilovers at each corner, a 4.2 litre, 300bhp, Rob Beere Racing straight six XK engine neatly slots in up front. This is coupled, via a Tilton twin-plate rally specification clutch, to a Getrag close-ratio five speed gearbox and a Salisbury 3.31 Power Lock differential. This incredible combination of power and engineering, makes driving this vehicle an absolute pleasure. The interior is trimmed in a contrasting green leather, the seats are a retro looking padded, semi bucket style with hip/thigh support pads Velcro'd into place. The steering wheel is a large retro chrome design with a twin wooden rim. A small alloy gear lever sits on top of the transmission tunnel and in front of this, sits a substantial rev counter. The dash is littered with oil, temperature and fuel gauges, a speedometer and a sprinkling of warning lights finish this off to make the 1950's look and complement the patina of this D-Type Jaguar. Built as a pure track day vehicle and driven by Adrian Newey of McLaren fame and the F1 presenter Tony Jardine, this D-Type was extremely competitive with the help of the McLaren team, at that time, attending to the running and suspension set-up. Since its track day times and racing pedigree, this D-Type has been fitted with a milder set of Cams and 45 Triple Webers, tuned by Trident Motor Services in Hertfordshire, to make this D-Type into an extremely powerful but forgiving and useable road going vehicle. A fabulous and evocative looking sports car which would be enormous fun on the road or indeed on the track at a fraction of the price of a genuine article!

    • Model4½ Litre Drophead Coupé by Salmons
    • FE Cat descWalter Owen Bentley proudly showed his new 3 litre car at the 1919 Olympia Motor Exhibition, the prototype engine having fired up for the first time a few weeks earlier. This was the model which was to become a motor racing legend, with its classical radiator design and the British Racing Green livery, it has become the archetypal vintage sports car. Early success in the 1922 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy where Bentleys finished second, forth and fifth to take the team prize. However, by the mid 1920’s, the 3 Litre’s competitiveness was on the wane, together with the fact that too many customers were fitting unsuitable heavy coachwork led to the introduction of the 4½ Litre. The new 4½ model consisted of the chassis, gearbox and brakes of the 3 Litre model that it was replacing, the engine was, in essence, two-thirds of the six-cylinder 6½ litre unit. The new four-cylinder motor retained the same bore and stroke, four valves per cylinder driven by an overhead camshaft and having a combined block and cylinder head. This matching numbers WO Bentley 4½ litre was fitted with a Vanden Plas, four seat, open tourer body was supplied to its first owner, S K Thornley in May 1928. In July 1928, the car was entered in the Bournemouth Concours D’Elegance and shortly after, in September, he took the car to France to attend Boulogne Motor Week. In 1932, it was purchased by the owner of Salmons and Sons Coachbuilders, Mr. Fred Salmon, who fitted the current 1928 Drophead Coupé body that he had had especially constructed for his personal use four years earlier and had fitted to his American King chassis. Salmons Coachbuilders was started in the 1820’s building horse drawn carriages with their first body on a car in 1898. The firm remained in the family control until becoming a limited company in 1939, then renamed Tickford Ltd. in 1943. In 1955, the company became the home to Aston Martin after the David Brown takeover. This Bentley had a further four owners in the UK over the next twenty years before being exported to the USA in 1962. By 1981, it was back in the UK and is pictured in the definitive history ‘Salmons and Sons, Tickford Coachbuilders’ by Dennis Mynard (featured on page 72) outside Aston Martin following the factory restoration. The car was then purchased by our vendors father in 1984 and put into his collection of classic cars based in Wales. During his ownership, he attended a number of Bentley Driver's Club and Vintage Sports Car Club events as well as rallies in the South of France and competing in the Gordon Bennet rally in Ireland. The car has been fitted with an overdrive unit, effective in third and forth gears, to assist in cruising to the long-distance events. Finished in green with black wings, black roof and black leather interior, this 4½ has been kept in dry storage since 2012 and has recently been started and was driven for the catalogue photographs. This Classic ‘WO’ is supplied with a V5 registration document, old V5 registration papers and a file containing old MoT test certificates, work receipts going back to 1997, copies of old photographs of the car back in 1928 and after and a copy of ‘Salmons and Sons, Tickford Coachbuilders’ by Dennis C. Mynard. This is an opportunity to purchase a vintage Bentley fitted with a period body and sufficiently good performance to still be a practical car on today’s roads.

    • Model2000 Spider Veloce
    • FE Cat descDuring 1970, the Giulia 105 series Spider was updated in numerous areas. Most significantly, was the revision at the rear of the car. Gone was its roundtail look and in its place was the, aerodynamically more efficient, Wunibald Kamm- design. Other changes were not so easily spotted. The windscreen was more inclined leading to additional modifications. Adorning the front was a new heart shaped grille and revised bumpers. Several other detail changes were made before production changed to the Series III model in 1982. This example offered today was originally supplied to the US and was subsequently shipped to Auckland, New Zealand in the late 1990s. Whilst there, it was professionally converted to righthand drive and the fuel injection replaced with twin Weber carburettors. During 2008, a bare metal repaint was completed, the coachwork, we are informed, was found to be in exceptional condition and still retains all of its original panels today. Presented in Pininfarina Bianco with contrasting black trim, this Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Veloce looks very handsome and sits upon a set of Campagnolo alloy wheels shod with excellent tyres. Mechanically, this Spider has benefitted from a recent engine rebuild by the well-respected Alfa Romeo specialist, Autolusso. The interior is all in good order whilst the hood is excellent. A bespoke tonneau cover has been made and designed to fit well, the intention was to eliminate buffering at speed; we are informed that this has been a successful modification. This Spider has been in its current ownership for the past 16 years and will arrive at the sale with a history file, UK V5 registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate. Looking handsome and with a freshly rebuilt engine, this handsome Alfa Romeo is ready to be used and enjoyed immediately.

    • ModelTR4
    • FE Cat descProduced between 1961 and 1967, the TR4 combined a new, modern and aggressive body design by famed Italian stylist, Giovanni Michelotti with the basic chassis of the previous TR3A. The TR4 also improved passenger comfort with wind-up windows, face-level ventilation and an optional hardtop. The 2138cc engine of the late-production TR3A continued while the 1991cc engine was also made available to buyers who wanted to participate in two litre racing. When equipped with the optional overdrive, the TR4 was good for a top speed of almost 110mph. Today, the four-cylinder TR's are among the easiest of post-war classic sports cars to own and maintain being supported by a multitude of component suppliers and other specialists. This TR4 was one of the many exported to the US and was repatriated to the UK in 1979. The Triumph was, at some stage, converted to righthand drive, clearly she has benefitted from time and investment as this example presents in good order. The red coachwork is in good order as is the black interior. The seats in the car are non-standard however the original seats are available and will be supplied with the car. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 31st July 2020 together with a small number of invoices; these quintessentially British sports cars are very stylish and are great fun to drive.

    • ModelCLK55 AMG Avantgarde
    • FE Cat descIn keeping with many of the other Mercedes-Benz model series, the new CLK-Class in 2002 was able to bear the three letter mark of sporting prowess AMG. The package promised superlative power delivery and outstanding handling as well as a list of equipment that positively exuded exclusivity. Topping the new CLK range was a V8 model that delivered performance on a par with a typical sports car; the CLK55 AMG produced an impressive 362bhp which could propel this stylish sports cabriolet to 60mph in just 5.2 seconds. Further features that made the flagship CLK- Class sports model really stand out included a special AMG body styling for the front apron, rear apron and side skirts not to mention the 18" AMG alloy wheels and the AMG exhaust system with twin tail pipes. The CLK55 AMG was a rare and high-performance car powered by a hand assembled, 5.4 litre, V8 engine inscribed by the individual engineer who built the unit. Production was in Bremen, Germany. There were only a few hundred cars built each year from 2002 to 2006 and most examples were exported to the USA with only a handful ended up on these shores. We are delighted to offer one of these rare beasts, in fact this is a 2005 facelifted 209 Series model with only three owners and has covered just 45,000 miles. The car is presented in classic brilliant silver with Anthracite leather interior and electric black softtop which can be operated via the key fob or at speeds up to 5mph in just 20 seconds. This example is in outstanding original condition and it also benefits from being a Sports Edition based on the Avantgarde specification with Bi-Xenon headlights, restyled front bumper, a spoiler on the boot, cross drilled brakes and five spoke 17" wheels. The AMG sports package also included a 200mph speedo! This fabulous example is supplied with a V5 registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2020 and a full Mercedes-Benz service history with its fully stamped and original books including a recent service in 2019. This car wants for nothing with every gadget working exactly as it should - all ready for its new owner to use and enjoy.

    • ModelDS Safari
    • FE Cat descAfter 18 years of secret development, the DS19 was introduced on 5th October, 1955, at the Paris Motor Show. In the first 15 minutes of the show, 743 orders were taken and orders for the first day totalled 12,000 cars. To a France still deep in reconstruction after the devastation of World War II and also building its identity in the post-colonial world, the DS motor car was a symbol of French ingenuity. The DS was the first mass production car with front power disc brakes. It also featured hydropneumatic suspension including an automatic levelling system, variable ground clearance, power steering and a semi-automatic transmission and a fibreglass roof which reduced weight. It also sported inboard front brakes as well as independent suspension. Different front and rear track widths and tyre sizes reduced the understeer typical of front-engined and front-wheel drive cars. As with all French cars, the DS design was affected by the tax horsepower system which effectively mandated small engines. Despite the rather leisurely acceleration afforded by its four-cylinder engine, the DS was successful in motorsports. The Citroën DS placed fifth on Automobile Magazine's ‘100 Coolest Cars’ listing in 2005. It was also named the most beautiful car of all time by Classic & Sports Car magazine after a poll of 20 world-renowned car designers. This particularly handsome Citroën is an original UK registered righthand drive example and is fitted with a semi-automatic gearbox together power steering. Owned by the same person since 2006, the knowledgeable and enthusiastic DS collector has looked after this example exceedingly well and she presents in very good order throughout. Having been previously restored, this Safari has covered only 2,500 miles in the last twelve years. Finished in the delightful colour combination of Bleu Angora with Gris Palombe and Bufflon Gris vinyl interior, this Citroën is supplied with a V5C registration document together with some history. Presenting in splendid order and sure to turn heads wherever she appears.

    • ModelDelta HF Integrale (16 Valve)
    • FE Cat descThe Delta Integrale was born out of the ban on Group B rally cars. The Lancia won 10 victories out of 11 rallies and the WRC world title in 1988. The '8 valve' Delta had won, ahead of every rival in every continent, demonstrating its unrivalled performance, reliability and durability. But Lancia did not let this lull them into complacency. The 16 valve HF Integrale was being developed and was to run alongside its stablemate during the 1989 season. Lancia ultimately won six consecutive World Rally Championships with the Integrale making it the most successful rally car of all time. The new car was identifiable from its predecessor by the raised centre of the bonnet created to accommodate the new 16v engine. The other exterior changes were wider arches, wheels, tyres and new identity badges at the front and rear. Further development of the 16v engine included a Garrett T3 Turbocharger, larger injectors and a highly efficient intercooler. A new over-boost provided 200bhp and 137mph performance with a 0-62mph time of 5.5 seconds. Brisk, even by today’s standards. The road going Integrale is spirited, reliable and a hoot to drive, rewarding the driver with superb feedback and outstanding rally bred handling power. This late 16v model was delivered new to Germany in January of 1991. The car’s service book shows 17 stamps, a testament to how well the car has been cared for. It was imported to the UK in 1997 and registered here on 29th October of that year. The car is presented in excellent condition for its year with the only modifications seeming to be the uprated Evo 1 specification alloy wheels and different dashboard dial backgrounds. The car is reported to run and drive very well, embarrassing most sports cars a fraction of its age. It comes supplied with a V5C registration document, MoT test certificate valid until September 2020and its history file includes an extensive compilation of invoices of work carried out. Relive past rally glories in one of the best to ever compete.

    • Model300 SEL (3.5 litre)
    • FE Cat descThe Mercedes-Benz W108 and W109 were luxury cars produced from 1965 through to 1973 in North America only. The line was an update of the predecessor W111 and W112 fintail saloon. The 300 SEL made grand headlines with the 'Q car', the 6.3 litre range was the top example and, behind it in the model line-up with the luxuries and a less heavy yet still very powerful 3.5 litre engine, was the SEL which was, at the time, priced ahead of the competing Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. Offered with air suspension, all electric windows and providing Mercedes-Benz legendary reliability, these cars were sought after by Europe's elite and swiftly became a favourite in the United States. Although many critics described the car as a 'fintail without the fintails', the vehicle was an amazing success. Mostly, due its simple and understated contours, it is not remembered for its looks though some argue that it was thanks to the design that the car has such a timeless charm but instead it was very well known for its reliability and durability, proof again of excellent German engineering. This lovely example is presented in navy blue with complementary blue leather interior. Its smooth and rare 3.5 litre, V8 is mated to an automatic gearbox and with air suspension, this model is one of the most desirable for the discerning collector. These luxury saloons were the choice of Embassies and Royalty around the world, they were a delight to drive, performing well on those long journeys which ate up the miles effortlessly and in comfort. This particular car has covered a mere 49,000km and we are informed has been serviced and setup correctly by a renowned Mercedes-Benz specialist thus performs beautifully.

    • ModelE-Type Series I 2+2 Fixedhead Coupé (4.2 litre)
    • FE Cat descFamously launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, the Jaguar E-Type created a furore. Its combination of supercar performance, superb styling and a low price tag left rivals reeling and customers clamouring. Built as a monocoque with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine, the model's combination of all-round independent suspension (torsion-bar front/coil-sprung rear) rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes gave it excellent roadholding and handling capabilities. Fed by triple SU HD8 carburettors and topped with a 'straight port' DOHC cylinder head, its indomitable 3781cc straight-six engine was quoted as developing some 265bhp and 260lbft of torque. Allied to a four-speed Moss gearbox, it reputedly enabled the low-slung two-seater to sprint from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and onto 150mph. While any E-Type Roadster is desirable, the lithesome free-revving 3.8 litre cars enjoy a particularly exalted status; however, the later Series I, 4.2 litre was considered a better engine. Benefitting from an all synchromesh gearbox and more comfortable seats together with improved brakes more in keeping with the advertised top speed, the 4.2 litre was a far better product and much easier to live with on a daily basis. First registered on 13th October 1966, this Jaguar was restored in 1994 and has been owned by the vendor since August 2002. The original specification was red and automatic transmission, during the restoration the body colour was changed to Gunmetal Grey and a manual gearbox appears to have been fitted a number of years prior to the restoration. Two history folders accompany this E-Type confirming she has been a very well maintained and much loved car. A new set of stainless wire wheels were fitted in 2016 and a stainless steel exhaust system fitted in July 2015. At some stage the cylinder head has been converted to run on unleaded fuel. The vendor has enjoyed owning this Jaguar immensely, taking the car on trips to Wings and Wheels, Silverstone Classic and Le Mans Classic. Best described as a good genuine example in thoroughly useable condition, this 2+2 fixedhead coupé is a British icon.

    • Model911 / 996 Carrera 4 Convertible
    • FE Cat descOn its debut, the 996 featured the most significant changes to the Carrera model since its 1963 introduction, namely the water-cooled engine replacing the previously air-cooled unit. Other changes included a sleeker body with a more steeply raked windshield and a redesigned interior. The performance characteristics remained superb with reliability at its core. This Carrera 4S is the ultimate incarnation of Porsche's 996, it has the more desirable 3.6 litre engine coupled with a six-speed manual gearbox. This lovely convertible example is presented in metallic blue with matching blue leather interior. It comes with a good service history, six Porsche main dealer services, four Porsche specialist services, two other specialist services and one local service – all services have been carried out at regular mileage intervals. The first owner had ordered this car with many factory extras including Xenon lights, satellite navigation, climate control, Bluetooth, sports exhaust and 18 inch Carrera wheels to name a few (a list of all extras can be seen on file). Also to be included in the sale is the factory hard top which comes with its own stand and hard top bag. This is a particularly nice example of this generation of the Porsche 911 (996) and with all the extras it beholds, it surely is one of best available.

    • ModelDouble-Six Series III HE
    • FE Cat descThe Daimler name was used between 1926 and 1938 and was revived by the new chairman of Jaguar cars, Lofty England, to be used on the company’s new top-of-the-range V12 model. England had started his career as an apprentice at Daimler in the late 1920s so the name Double-Six came as no surprise. Launched in 1979, the Series III benefited from a clean cut, new body design from the world famous Italian design house Pininfarina. The new design featured more glass and an up-to-date styling of the front and rear of the car. This flagship car in the Jaguar/Daimler line-up was produced until the end of 1992. It would be hard to imagine news footage of the 1980’s and 1990’s without a member of the cabinet or the Royal Family ascending out of a Double-Six. The Daimler of that period epitomised luxury travel and understated British fashion. The current vendor tells us that the previous owner of this rare Daimler was a fastidious enthusiast. This is borne out by how well the car presents itself today. The impressive condition of this Double-Six is complemented with a service book that boasts 22 main dealer stamps and a V5C registration document showing only three previous owners. The original purchaser of this Coventry cat paid extra to have Waxoyl applied extensively to the vulnerable areas of the car and this can still be seen today. The originality of this car extends to the supplying dealer number plates, window sticker and key fob being in place. Offered to auction with an MoT test certificate valid until March 2020 and including the cherished registration plate, this low mileage example is one of the best we have seen.

    • ModelXK120 Roadster
    • FE Cat descThe Jaguar XK120 was manufactured between 1948 and 1954 and was their first sports car since the SS100 which ceased production in 1940. It was launched in roadster form at the 1948 London Motor Show as a show car for the new Jaguar XK engine. It caused a sensation thus persuading Jaguar founder and design boss, William Lyons, to put the car into production. The 120 in its name referred to its top speed which made the XK120 the world's fastest standard production car at the time of its launch. It was available in two open versions; first as the roadster, then also as a drophead coupé from 1953 and also as a closed or fixedhead coupé from 1951. With alloy cylinder head and twin side-draft SU carburettors, the double overhead-cam, 3.4 litre, straight-six XK engine was comparatively advanced for a mass produced unit of the time. With a standard compression ratio of 8:1 it developed 160bhp. This same basic design of the XK engine, later modified into 3.8 litre and 4.2 litre versions, survived into the late 1980s. This lefthand drive example is presented in silver with blood red trim. It was imported in 1990 with our vendor purchasing the car in 1991. This is a restored example and presents almost as new throughout, it is an incredibly handsome car in outstanding condition throughout. The hood is new, the trim without wear and both are fitted well. The engine bay, body and chassis, all of which are easy to inspect on an XK120, are also in excellent condition. The 3.4 litre engine is believed to be matching numbers however the odometer reading of 570 miles is thought to be the mileage since restoration. Recently fully recommissioned and thus ready to drive, this example is offered with the XK120 service manual, a UK V5 registration document and import documentation including the original Certificate of Title from Michigan and MoT test certificates from 1990 until 2011. This is a stunning example of the XK120 and in desirable condition, viewing is highly recommended.

    • Model400i
    • FE Cat descPininfarina was the genius behind this front-engined masterpiece. The design was derived from the almost identical looking 365 GT4 2+2 (which itself was based on the famous Daytona). Production began in 1976, when Ferrari revealed its first car fitted with an automatic transmission, the 400, at the Paris Motor show of 1976. The GT version however took advantage of a five-speed all synchromesh transmission. Although the incorporation of an automatic transmission and U.S. emissions compliance, indicate it may have been designed for the American market, no version of the 400 series were ever officially imported to the USA. The interior was lavishly appointed with rich leather, high end carpets and ample legroom. The fuel injection version followed with Bosch K-Jetronic under the bonnet. Today, its sleek Pininfarina designed lines and relatively limited production numbers certainly give it classic status. This Ferrari 400i was originally supplied by H R Owen and was first registered on 25th May 1984. The Grigio Silverstone paintwork is a colour that particularly suits this car and the cream soft leather interior has a pleasant patina. Over the last couple of years this car has been used very little and as such will require some recommissioning. Supplied with the car is a V5C registration document together with an MoT test certificate valid until 19th October 2019 and a leather bound file that contains the original handbooks and invoices. The market has recognised the desirability of the 400 series Ferrari’s with values increasing of late.

    • ModelSilver Wraith II
    • FE Cat descThe Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow is a luxury car that was manufactured from 1965 to 1980 and was the first to use unitary body and chassis construction in response to concerns that the company was falling behind in automotive innovation. The original Shadow was 3½" narrower and 7" shorter than the Silver Cloud however the car managed to offer increased passenger and luggage space thanks to more efficient packaging made possible by unitary construction. Aside from a more modern appearance and construction, the Silver Shadow introduced many new features such as disc rather than drum brakes and independent rear suspension. The Wraith II is identified by all alterations found on the Silver Shadow II and additionally an Everflex covered roof, a smaller rear opera-style window and different wheel covers. Some Silver Wraith II’s were also fitted with electric divisions. This good 1980 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II, supplied new without a division, was purchased by the current owner in 1999 to join his collection of classic cars. When he acquired the car it had covered 138,843 miles, since then it has covered an average of 400 miles per year until 2010 when it was placed into storage and only brought out a couple of times for MoT tests. During the vendors tenure the car was regularly maintained by Rolls-Royce specialists, Hofmann's of Henley. Since being in his ownership, this Silver Wraith II has never been used in the rain and has been kept in a heated garage. In 2007, the odometer in the speedometer stopped working for a period of time, this fault has been rectified. Finished in Midnight Blue with black Everflex roof and cream Connolly hide interior, it is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2020 and a history file containing the old registration documents, invoices from Hofmann's of Henley and old MoT test certificates going back to 1999. The Silver Wraith II is the same as the Silver Shadow with the benefit of the extra leg room to the rear compartment. This delightful Rolls-Royce offers enormous luxury for a modest outlay.

    • ModelT2 Kombi (Splitscreen)
    • FE Cat descThe 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.
