    • Model122S Amazon Estate
    • FE Cat descIn 1956, a prototype of a new passenger car from Volvo was released. The car became known as the Amazon in Sweden but badged the 121 and 122S on the export market. In September 1961, yet another version based on the 121/122S was presented, a two door saloon. This version was an eagerly awaited model, particularly by the Swedish market, as Sweden was a typical market for two door cars at that time. The estate version was introduced at the 1962 Stockholm Auto Show and Volvo manufactured 73,000 examples between 1962 and 1969. These cars featured a two-piece tailgate with the lower section folding down to provide a load surface and the upper section that hinged overhead, which was innovative at the time considering that Range Rover introduced them to their new 4X4 later than Volvo. The vehicle's rear license plate, attached to the lower tailgate, could 'fold up' such that when the tailgate was lowered and the vehicle was in use, the license plate was still visible – clever! The Amazon platform was used as the basis for the P1800 and 1800ES, famed the world over of course as being used by The Saint and Roger Moore! This wonderful example was restored in South Africa and was imported from there in 2018. The original engine block has been modified to two litres to accommodate a Mercedes-Benz SLK pistons and has been fitted with a Mercedes-Benz Supercharger from a Kompressor model which gives it great performance as you can imagine. The interior is in superb condition and has been re trimmed in black leather. The suspension at the front has been lowered slightly and the rear raised, creating a cracking looking car with performance to match. A lot of fun but still a practical family car by today’s standards!

    • ModelXJ-S HE Le Mans
    • FE Cat descJaguar’s famous win at Le Mans in 1990 in the classic purple and white, Silk Cut livery not only secured their prominence in Group C sportscars but also launched celebrations at Brown’s Lane culminating in the XJ-S Le Mans edition. Limited to 280 cars, there were special edition features which included twin headlights, latticed alloy wheels, sports suspension, embossed Autolux seating and a special numbered plaque on each sill. Produced in very low numbers, these limited editions are now very collectible. Registered as number 151 out of the 280 units made, this example is presented in Solent Blue with a magnolia leather interior. Complete with a High Efficiency engine giving improved fuel efficiency, this Le Mans model has an extraordinary history file with it, all contained within a JDHT leather binder. Every single service record, MoT test certificate (including current expiring February 2020) and Jaguar purchase pack as well as ‘The History of the Jaguar XJ-S’ by Den Carlow and a complete XJ-S Mechanics manual. This, however, is something of a rolling restoration with faded paintwork on the offside front wing and recent damage and corrosion to the nearside mid and rear sections. The interior is perfectly usable although the driver’s seat requires renovation. At its heart though, still very much an XJ-S Le Mans.

    • ModelSundial Camper Van
    • FE Cat descThe Volkswagen Type Two was introduced in 1950 as a multi-variant utility vehicle, known as the Transporter, Kombi or Microbus (depending on body type) and was devised as an evolution of the Volkswagen Type One, the original Beetle. The first generation of these versatile vehicles, named the T1, was produced with distinctive split-screens from 1950 until 1967. Only two models were originally offered, the Kombi and the Commercial, the Microbus was added in May 1950, and was joined by the Deluxe Microbus in June 1951. This 1967 Sundial camper was originally imported in 2011 from Idaho, USA and fitted was with an 1800cc engine from a light aircraft! With the vehicle in need of some restoration work, the then owner had intended to scrap this engine and opt for a traditional stock overhauled 1200cc engine. After all the necessary welding and body work was complete, the then owner, in 2013 leaned on expertise from XYZ VW in Tottenham to perform the all important preparation for the camper. Before deciding on this striking colour combination of Ferrari Rosso Corsa Red and Mercedes Primrose Yellow, the decision was taken to trim the camper with a matching red before continuing on with the restoration. New brakes were fitted throughout including a new master cylinder to complement the drivability of the camper, this was coupled to a set of restored steel wheels and chrome hubcaps. The interior fitting is bespoke, the owner was disappointed with off-the-shelf options and decided to tackle this personally, thus the plywood roof panels and trim all add to the ultra cool look for this van, both inside and out. A ⅔ width rock-and-roll bed can be found next to the custom cabinets and this camper has been converted to 12v which helps to power the electrics and a modern stereo. Upon completion, this example was featured in the August 2013's edition of Ultra VW magazine for which it was the cover car. Offered today with a sensible estimate and in wonderful condition, this unique and head turning camper will be the perfect foil for events, festivals and trips to the coast where you will inevitably be the envy of camper fans throughout.

    • ModelTurbo R
    • FE Cat descThe Bentley Turbo R initially inherited the turbocharged engine from the Mulsanne Turbo and also sported a retuned suspension and wider tyres on alloy wheels, quite a departure for a Bentley. From the 1987 model year, however, the Turbo R's V8 engine was re-tuned with new Bosch MK-Motronic fuel injection for added torque. Other modifications carried out at the same time included new sports seats and a higher rear axle ratio. Motor Trend called the Turbo R 'the first Bentley in decades deserving of the famous name' in their review of the car on its introduction to the United States in 1989. The suspension changes, though seemingly subtle, transformed the heavy car into a real performer and slotted above the Bentley Mulsanne S and Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit and it carved a well deserved niche in the world of performance saloons. This desirable floor gear change example presents extremely well in metallic Royal Ebony with the classic combination of Parchment leather interior and black piping. Contained within the history file of this well looked-after Bentley is a number of invoices and stamps in the service book, this includes invoices totalling nearly £17,000 spent during the current owners three year tenure. The interior of a Bentley is renowned for its space, leather and walnut trim, this Crewe beauty is no exception and benefits from the option of black carpets and rear picnic tables. This Bentley is offered with a V5C registration document, a valid MoT test certificate and the cherished number plate.

    • ModelMk. I Saloon
    • FE Cat descSome cars simply don’t fit the sales profile that we all use as a measure. That additional attention to detail that costs far more than you will ever get back and, in fact, the opportunities available for particular models far outweigh the standard parameters for normal road cars. The Mk. I saloon from Jaguar is just such a car. Good quality examples are well built and good to drive, additionally, the competition variations are hugely desirable and race often at gold-standard events such as the St. Mary’s trophy at the Goodwood Revival and the Transatlantic Trophy at Silverstone Classic. Presented here is a car, originally sold to Richard Arthur Zimmer from the US and used for one summer in the UK before exporting the car to New York and then over to California. Existing is all paperwork and service bills during that time. It was then sold on to his family in 1989 and in the ensuing two years in discussions with the DVLA, it acquired the original registration back in 1959. Our vendor acquired UKV 514 in 2001 as a ‘forever’ car. His first order of business was to spit the car into constituent parts. The body was taken back to bare metal and soda-blasted in places as required. The panels were found to be sound throughout and the car was subsequently painted in gloss black. Whilst the engine and gearbox were out, they were both rebuilt and upgraded from automatic to a Mk. II manual unit with overdrive with synchromesh on first. A new radiator has been fitted along with new brake lines, discs, pads, reconditioned callipers and stainless steel exhaust. The wheels are now wires and painted to match the body. The interior trim, seating and headlining was completely replaced by specialist, Mark Webber, in the original factory red leather. The bumpers are also original and re-chromed. The overall effect of this is accentuated with stainless steel Coombes spats. An extremely good-looking Jaguar, well built and with an excellent history. Race or road, it is used regularly and looks and drives superbly.

    • Model911/930 Carrera Cabriolet (3.2 litre)
    • FE Cat descMany a car enthusiast, at one time or another, has dreamt of owning a Porsche 911 and few have set the pulses racing like the poster car for the 80's generation than the 930 with its iconic whale tail accompanied by fabulous performance. Launched in 1984 and reviving the ‘Carrera' name for the first time since 1977, the most notable advance on the 80's Carrera was the introduction of the 3.2 litre engine; although it remained an air-cooled 'flat six', the 3.2 was 80% new. With 231bhp on tap, the new 'boxer' motor endowed the Carrera with a level of performance approaching that of the original 911 Turbo of 1974, a torque-rich 231bhp, enough to propel the lithe and slippery coupé to over 150mph with 0-60mph coming up in 5.6 seconds. All 3.2 Carreras feature galvanised bodies which, together with Porsche's legendary build quality, ensure that these classics are long lasting. Presented in Ice White with the iconic 80's white centred Fuchs wheels, this 911 SC Convertible has seen significant recent expenditure in all the correct places by our vendor and private owner. Purchased with his son while reminiscing of the past, much time and effort has gone into ensuring the car drives and performs both well and reliably. Notably RSR Engineering, under 1,000 miles ago, were commissioned to rebuild the top end of the engine with new gaskets and seals, fit a new clutch kit, reset the cam timing, replace all corroded pipes and see to the brakes on the car. Invoices totalling £8,000 are present and detail the engine works, they are accompanied by some chassis work to the B pillars. Our vendor had the seats fully reupholstered and had a new hood fitted professionally, he ordered all new carpets which are all correctly sized and ready to be fitted by a new owner. The history file is packed full of invoices from specialists such as Camtune, Tognola Engineering and Porsche AFN Reading combined with almost every MoT test certificate dating back to 1988. Offered with an MoT test certificate valid until April 2020 with no advisories and original maintenance booklet, we are informed this car drives superbly. This car is a low cost entrance into properly quick classic Porsche ownership..

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

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

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

    • ModelYNL Plaxton Bus
    • FE Cat descIn the iconic 1969 British comedy caper film, The Italian Job, a gang of thieves, after a daring heist in Turin sneak out of the city, they then rendezvous with a coach in the Alps. On the looping mountain roads, the driver loses control of the coach. The back of the bus is left teetering over a cliff and as Croker attempts to reach the gold, it slips further. The film finishes on a literal cliff-hanger with Croker announcing: "Hang on a minute lads, I've got a great idea". This is a replica of that very coach and has been modified to carry the three Mini's which were restored to commemorate the film, named the 27th greatest British film of all time. This Bedford Plaxton YNL bus was purchased by our vendors in 2019, a former PSV school coach it has been re-registered as a 13-16 seat coach for Class 5 MoT purposes. The bus can be driven on a regular car driving licence due to it being over 30 years old, it also has seven removable double seats supplied with it. Painted and remodelled to replicate the Italian Job bus, this example has opening rear doors and ramps so that it can fit three period Mini's. Welwyn Jolly Boys purchased this bus after the completion of their Mini's in order to complete the trip to Turin and recreate the iconic movie scene, much of this can be seen on the YouTube channel created for the trip.

    • ModelBoxster S
    • FE Cat descThe first-generation Boxster (the 986) was introduced in late 1996; it was powered by a 2.5 litre flat six-cylinder engine. Harm Lagaay's design, inspired by the 356 Speedster and 550 Spyder, stimulated a commercial turnaround for Porsche. Many believe the introduction of the Boxster helped save Porsche from acquisition. It was Porsche's first water-cooled non-front engine. In the Boxster, it is placed mid-engine, while in the 911, rear-engine. The mid-engine layout provides a low centre of gravity, near-perfect weight distribution and neutral handling. In 2000, the new Boxster S variant was introduced with a larger 3.2 litre engine and the base model received a more powerful 2.7 litre engine. Production of the 986 began at the former Porsche 928 facility in Stuttgart, Germany in 1996. The Boxster was Porsche's biggest volume seller from its introduction in 1996 until the company introduced the Cayenne sport utility vehicle in 2003. This lovely, one previous owner, first generation Boxster S is offered in Arctic Silver with full extended red leather trim and upgraded sports seats. Having covered just 61,000 miles, this example has, importantly, had the IRM work completed and the IMS bearing replaced, it has a good service history and most recently had a major service with Porsche Torque which included new tyres and suspension arms front and rear replaced. The upgrades from new include Bose sound system and a six CD radio. This desirable Porsche Boxster S has an MoT test certificate valid until August 2020, two sets of keys and a complete book pack with all the manuals. Guide Price £7,000 - £9,000

    • ModelXJ6 Series II (4.2 litre)
    • FE Cat descThe XJ6 saloon was a lifesaving model for Jaguar Cars Ltd. Since it was first unveiled in 1968, the design has evolved through five generations to the present day. The first three models are differentiated only by slight styling or mechanical variations, sharing the same basic body shell and engine. The fourth and fifth generation XJ6's each incorporate major body, mechanical and electrical redesigns. The terminologies for the first three different versions of the XJ6 are: Series I (1968-73), Series II (1973-79) and Series III (1979-87). The XJ6 Series II was only cosmetically different from the XJ6 Series I; the front bumpers were raised to a standard height and the radiator grille was much smaller with horizontal bars. Early Series II's shared the same short 108.9" wheelbase but in 1972 the wheelbase was extended by four inches to 112.8" to create the long wheelbase model known as the XJ6L. Both six and 12 cylinder engine models were available. This XJ6 long wheelbase 4.2 litre example is in 'time warp' condition and displays under 12,000 miles on the odometer which we have been informed is correct. The paperwork accompanying this car is an addition to the cars provenance and includes the original handbooks and previous MoT test certificates. In 1996, after having been in storage since 1985, the car won 'car of the day' at a Jaguar Drivers' Club Concours D'Elegance and came 2nd in a Concours event at an XJ event at Duxford. The brightwork is good throughout with only slight pitting due to its time in storage for which it has spent a large part of its life. The interior presents as it should on a car with so few miles, the paint work is in good order throughout as is the engine bay. Recently recommissioned and detailed, this car was the personal vehicle of our vendor, who sadly is no longer with us, a Jaguar Club member and enthusiast, this is rare example of the XJ6 with unrivalled originality.

    • ModelHSE (P38)
    • FE Cat descThe Range Rover, a large luxury four-wheel drive sport utility vehicle launched in 1970 is now in its fourth generation. In 1967, the first Range Rover prototype was built with the classic Range Rover shape clearly discernible although with a different front grille and headlight configuration. The design of the Range Rover was eventually finalised and signed off in 1969. After 25 years from the introduction of the first generation Range Rover, the second generation Range Rover model, designation P38A, was introduced for the 1995 model year with an updated version of the Rover V8 engines. The new model offered more equipment and premium trims positioning the vehicle above the Land Rover Discovery to face ever increasing competition in the SUV marketplace. This very well cared for P38, 2001 model, with the 4.0 litre, V8 engine is presented in HSE specification with Epsom Green coachwork and light stone leather trim with black piping and wood door cappings. Our vendor took ownership in 2018 from the third owner who had stored the car in her garage in Henley-on-Thames for nearly a decade covering less than 10,000 miles in that time. Our vendor then spent circa £2,000 recommissioning the car for his own use. Accompanying the car is a comprehensive service history, mainly with Lancaster Land Rover Reading, which indicate the mileage is genuine with the last recorded service at 65,921 miles in 2007, before our vendor comprehensively serviced the car again at 71,111 in 2018. The car is presented with an MoT test certificate valid until September 2020. The works have included a new air suspension compressor and sensors, recent invoices include listing parts and labour to bring the car to good order. The vendor informs us the interior is in good order as is the bodywork, the headlining is firm and the original carpets in the cabin and rear are all in good condition. Guide Price £7,000 - £10,000

    • FE Cat descThe XK8 was launched in 1996 and was the first generation of a new XK Series available in both coupe’ and convertible body styles and with the new 4.0 litre Jaguar AJ-V8 engine. The 1998 XKR was introduced with a supercharged version of the engine and both XK8 and XKR were electronically limited to a maximum of 155mph; the top speed of its predecessor, the XJS V12, being 158mph. Jeremy Clarkson, during a Top Gear test drive, likened the interior of the original XK8 to sitting inside Blenheim Palace. No one can deny that the XKR variants offer staggering performance for such a subtle ride with a luxurious seated position. In late 2001, Jaguar released the limited edition XKR 100 model to celebrate the centenary of Jaguar’s founder, Sir William Lyons. Only 500 coupes’ and convertibles were built and as it was a late 2001 car, they all benefitted from upgraded metal chain tensioners. The XKR 100 standard fit included Recaro seats, grey stained maple veneer, aluminium trim, satellite navigation, radio cassette and six CD player, R performance steering wheel, CATS (Computer Active Technology Suspension), 20” BBS 'Montreal' alloy wheels, Bembo brakes and cross drilled discs. This particular XKR 100 is offered with stunning Anthracite coachwork and Warm Charcoal trim. Having covered a mere 68,780 miles from new, we are informed this car has a comprehensive service history both with a main dealer and specialists. We are also informed that everything works as Jaguar intended and that the car performs beautifully. Supplied with the original book pack, numerous bills and receipts, previous MoT test certificates, all tools, proof of re-registration and two sets of keys, this is an incredibly collectable modern classic and estimated sensibly. Appropriately re-registered Y100 XKR and with a new MoT test certificate valid until September 2020, viewing is certainly recommended.

    • ModelXK8 Coupé
    • FE Cat descJaguar was founded as the Swallow Sidecar Company by Sir William Lyons in 1922, originally making motorcycle sidecars before developing passenger cars. The name was changed to Jaguar after World War II to avoid the unfavourable connotations of the SS initials. Sale to BMC happened in 1966 who, in 1968, merged with Leyland Motor Corporation and became British Leyland. Jaguar cars today are designed in Jaguar Land Rover's engineering centres at the Whitley plant in Coventry and at their Gaydon site in Warwickshire; the manufacturing takes place in Jaguar's Castle Bromwich assembly plant in Birmingham. The Jaguar XK series was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show on 5th March 1996. The first generation of the series, the XK8, replaced the XJS and was available as a coupé and convertible. It was the first eight-cylinder vehicle produced since the Daimler 250. The XK8 came with 17" alloy wheels, leather interior, air conditioning, burr walnut trim and side airbags as standard. This XK8 was purchased by Mr. Langford in August 1997 and has remained in his ownership ever since, making this a single owner car. The paintwork, alloy wheels and underside of the car are all in very good order. The burr walnut trim is all in good order and original. The car has been recently recommissioned as the vendor had it stored in a friends heated garage for several years. The car is currently showing just 23,182 miles from new which is believed to be correct. SORN since 2015, this example is now offered with a new MoT test certificate and ideal for the Jaguar collector. Guide Price £5,500 - £8,500

    • ModelCorona GL Coupé
    • FE Cat descThe Toyota Corona was manufactured between 1957 and 2002. A competitor to Nissan's Bluebird the word 'corona' is Latin for 'crown', a reference to an earlier vehicle Toyota offered called the Toyota Crown. It was exclusive to Toyopet Store dealership channels in Japan, while the larger Crown was available only at Toyota Store locations. In many countries, the Corona was one of Toyota's first international exports, and was shortly joined by the smaller Toyota Corolla, providing buyers with a choice of a larger car, with similar operating expenses to the smaller Corolla. The Corona was Toyota's second sedan in their hierarchy of products, just below the Crown, until 1968 when the Corona name was used on a larger, all new platform called the Toyota Corona Mk. II. This gave buyers more interior space while still offering dependable and affordable performance. This 1.9 litre coupé variant badged as the Mk. II GL is rarely seen on these shores having been imported from South Africa by our enthusiastic owner. Standing proud in metallic blue with black velour trim, this example has been recently fully recommissioned and as such the engine runs incredibly smoothly and is surprisingly quiet. Japanese workmanship was a byword for quality in the 70's, much to the frustration of the USA and it certainly shows upon firing up this Corona. Having spent most of its life in dry and warmer climates it is understandably a very solid car and, apart from a few imperfections, is a very smartly presented example. A rare and interesting car that is sure to attract attention from Japanese car collectors and enthusiasts, this is a very interesting proposition and offered without reserve.

    • Model190E (2.6 litre)
    • FE Cat descThe 190E is one of those enduring classics. Unfussy to look at, superb to drive, well built, reliable and classless. We all know that Mercedes-Benz spent half a billion pounds developing this model, excessive at first sight until you realise that this investment ushered in a new dawn of motorcars for the Stuttgart manufacturer that carried them through to the next decade. With many trim levels and mechanical options, a wide variety of discerning customers was catered for but based on this pure-bred mechanical platform. Supplied with the original registration from the first dealer, incredibly, this straight forward example has had just one owner from new and, with 96,000 miles recorded, it is a testament to its enduring popularity and reliability. This later 190 came equipped with an in-line, six cylinder engine with capacity increased to 2.6 litre and 160bhp on tap. Additionally, it benefits from a recent extensive service to include air filters, engine, gearbox and differential oil as well as refurbished 15 hole alloy wheels. Complete with its original hand book pack, this modern classic is offered without reserve.

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

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

    • ModelSuper V8 Long Wheelbase
    • FE Cat descThe new aluminium V8 was smooth, quiet and powerful, and corresponded perfectly with low road noise, long a key feature of Jaguars.' – Eric Dymock, 'The Jaguar File'. The new V8-powered Daimler saloons were introduced in 1997 as part of Jaguar's revised X300 range, a new and highly acclaimed ZF five-speed automatic gearbox arriving at the same time. This state-of-the-art, quad-cam, 32-valve engine was built in capacities of 3.2 and 4.0 litres to power three new Jaguars and two new Daimlers. The new Daimlers comprised the V8 and Super V8, the latter equipped with a 322bhp supercharged unit, both of which shared the same long-wheelbase four-door saloon body and were equipped to the customarily very high standard of luxury. This lovely example is presented in Maroon Red with light tan interior and enjoys the supercharged V8 which propels this elegant British saloon along with great ease. The car comes with a good service history with regular stamps showing in the book. This model comes with air conditioning, electric windows and front seats. It also has a CD player and changer, picnic tables in the rear, sunroof and the desirable two seats in the rear as opposed to the bench seat configuration. We are informed that the two Jaguar supplied in car mobile phone units are in working order but will need a SIM card in each to operate. These luxury saloons are still as comfortable to ride in and as smooth to drive as they were 20 years ago.

    • ModelMini Cooper Convertible
    • FE Cat descThe Mini Hatch was an unsurprising hit when it was introduced in 2000. Produced by BMW and based on the styling of Sir Alec Issigonis’s 1959 classic, it could hardly fail. It went on to be a strong seller for BMW, a small car that’s cool, sporty and refined. A second generation model was launched in 2006 and a third was born in 2014. As well as the normal hard-top version, there’s also a convertible. After manually unlocking the roof, it retracts electronically in about 15 seconds, an action that can be performed at up to 20mph. Additionally you can have it fully converted or stopped half-way for a sunshine roof. With engines and trim, there are plenty of options, from the 211 horsepower John Cooper Works version to the 1.6 litre diesel which can stretch your mileage to 70mpg. All models have a strengthened body compared to the non-convertible, which partly accounts for its stiff, sporty, agile ride. First registered in January 2005 this lovely little convertible Cooper has led an easy life. Having covered only 54,000 miles in its 14 years, the car presents very well in black with black interior. It was ordered new with the 'Chilly Pack' which includes 17" alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rain-sensing windscreen wiper, clear indicator lenses, automatic air conditioning, LED headlights and fog lights and driving mode selector which allows the driver to select between ‘Sport’, ‘Mid’ and ‘Green’, There is also included a storage compartment pack, on board computer, half leather upholstery, passenger seat height adjustment, leather-trimmed multifunction steering wheel and interior mood lighting pack. The car was taken to Guernsey in 2011 where it resided until recently and has had one registered UK owner and two in Guernsey. It was noted that the clutch was slipping in 2018 at which point it was replaced. Since then the car has benefitted from a major service in March 2019. The car is now fully UK registered and comes supplied its V5C registration document, MoT test certificate valid until July 2020 and history file.

    • ModelSLK 230 Kompressor
    • FE Cat descThe R170 Mercedes SLK was the first generation compact roadster produced by Mercedes-Benz, from 1996 to 2004. It was designed from late 1991 under Bruno Sacco with a final design being completed in early 1993 and approved by the board with a German design patent filed on September 30th 1993. The production SLK-Class was introduced at the Turin Motor Show on 22nd April 1996, appearing as a modern incarnation of the 1950s Mercedes-Benz 190SL. With 12 service stamps in the book, this SLK 230 Kompressor has been very well looked after throughout its life. A UK supplied car, sold new to Jersey, it resided there until only recently. The car was ordered with an impressive array of options with many at considerable expense. Options like AMG wheels at £1,174.47, Quartz leather interior at £851.06, Bose speaker system and an AMG body-kit costing £3,394.50 amongst many others, all of which can be seen on the original bill of sale included in the history file. Presented in very good condition with everything working on the car and with very good service history records, this SLK 230 offers a huge specification for the money. It is fully UK registered and comes supplied with its V5C registration document, MoT test certificate valid until July 2020 and a comprehensive history file.

    • ModelMk. II (3.8 litre)
    • FE Cat descThe Jaguar Mk. II is a medium sized saloon car built between 1959 and 1967 in Coventry as successors to the Jaguar 2.4 litre and 3.4 litre models manufactured between 1957 and 1959. These retrospectively became known as the Jaguar Mk. I following the release of the Mk. II in 1959. Adhering to Sir William Lyons' maxim of ‘grace, pace and space’, the Jaguar Mk. II was a beautiful, fast and capable saloon. It also gained a reputation as a capable car among criminals and law enforcement alike; the 3.8 litre model being particularly fast with its 220bhp engine giving a standing start of 0-60mph in 8.5 seconds and to a top speed of 125mph. With enough room for five adults, they were also employed by the Police to patrol British motorways. This early Jaguar Mk. II is lefthand drive and in need of a full restoration. The bodywork appears to be relatively rust free although the black paintwork will need refreshing. The engine starts and sounds fine although the automatic choke system appears not to be working. The gearbox appears to be working as it should although it must be stressed the car has only be driven very short distances. The door cards are off the car but are in the boot, some of the wood has also been removed but is also present with the car; it appears everything is with the car ready for restoration. Offered for sale without reserve.

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