Austin 12/16hp Saloon

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Austin 12/16hp Saloon - 1940 Car Manufacturer: Austin Car Model: 12/16hp Saloon Saloon Registration No: HSJ 522 Chassis No: 20524 Colour: Green Gearbox Type: Manual This very smartly presented Austin 12 is understood to have been a prototype for the largely identical 16hp model introduced immediately post-war, and therefore has the larger 2.2-litre engine (the first OHV unit to be fitted by Austin) and improved four-speed manual gearbox. It boasts an interesting history, having been initially employed as a Royal Navy staff car aboard HMS Implacable and HMS Indomitable, as which it travelled to the Far East, Australia and New Zealand. Wearing its original registration, 'SSV 586', it apparently starred in a number of films and TV series during the early 1990s and has been in the current ownership since 2009. A nut and bolt restoration was undertaken between 2010 and 2012 and the vendor now grades the big Austin's bodywork, Green paintwork, Tan interior trim, and four-cylinder engine as all being in 'excellent' order. A splendid example of a relatively rare breed.

Description: Jaguar MK II 2.4 Litre - 1962 Car Manufacturer: Jaguar Car Model: MK II 2.4 Litre Saloon Registration No: 421 AOW Chassis No: 11364D1N Colour: Maroon Gearbox Type: Manual Morse's memory still runs rampant - and not just in the hallowed halls of Oxford city either, as proven by this splendid lookalike of his unmistakable 2.4 MKII Jaguar, complete with Maroon paintwork topped by that signature Black Everflex roof, righthand drive steering and manual transmission. It has been the subject of considerable attention in recent times too. This has included; an engine-out overhaul; refurbished front suspension; glass-out repaint; a new Red leather interior complete with headlining; a replacement for the aforementioned vinyl roof; new brake hoses and overhaul of brake calipers; fresh ignition system; restoration of the twin SU carburettors; and a new battery as recently as this year. Currently showing an unwarranted 65,500 miles, '421 AOW' is now in need of a suitably caring new home and is being offered complete with an MOT valid to June 7 next year. Fans of the irascible detective please form an orderly queue...

Ford Consul Classic De Luxe

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Ford Consul Classic De Luxe - 1961 Car Manufacturer: Ford Car Model: Consul Classic De Luxe Saloon Registration No: 916 EOJ Chassis No: 27603 Colour: Carribean Turqoise / Ermine White Gearbox Type: Manual - Featured in the July 2016 issue of Classic Ford Magazine - In current 'club member' ownership since 1997 - Only used for local car shows and MOT'd until April 2017 As is obvious to the eye, Dearborn had a heavy influence on the styling of the Consul Classic (aka Consul 315 and Ford 109E). It was only offered between 1961 and 1963 (during which time just 111,225 were made) and came with two or four doors and Standard or De Luxe trim. Power for the earlier models was supplied by a 1340cc version of the 'Kent' engine. This gorgeous four-owner, four-door De Luxe example has a column change gearbox, is finished in Ermine White over Caribbean Turquoise, and was delivered new by Hanger Motors of Birmingham in October 1961. It's been in the current 'club member' ownership since 1997 and was restored about 14 years ago, since when it's been used for local car shows and featured in the July 2016 issue of Classic Ford. Considered by the vendor as 'very good' throughout, it comes with MOT to April 30, 2017. A rare opportunity.

Renault Twizy Technic

Description: PLEASE NOTE: This lot does not have a MOT certificate. It appears to be fitted with a discharged battery pack the rental agreement for which expired after three years in August 2016. The digital odometer seems to show 41.0 miles.Renault Twizy Technic - 2013 Car Manufacturer: Renault Car Model: Twizy Technic Saloon Registration No: T5 AAA Chassis No: VF1ACVYB049464366 Colour: White - One owner from new, larger 13KW electric motor, Sky Roof, Scissor Doors and Twizy Windows `Trying to drive one of these open-wheel electro-pods without grinning is a bigger challenge than stretching the range above 50 miles. It gets looks wherever it goes - even from the cynical, hurried British motorist, and it's not the sort of sneering jibes that something else with scissor doors (Lamborghini Aventador, anyone?) might attract. Children point, white van men beep cheerfully, and elderly drivers double take like H.G. Wells' extra-terrestrial invasion has made landfall in Cambridgeshire' (CAR magazine, Ollie Kew, December 2013). Offered for sale with clear title by order of the High Court, this particular example has formed part of an extensive London-based private collection since new. Purchased from Renault London West for ú8,920, its specification included the larger 13KW electric motor, a Sky Roof, scissor doors, Parrot Bluetooth and Twizy windows. An HPi check reveals that (a) the Renault has had no former keepers and (b) it is not recorded on their stolen, finance, security watch or insurance write off databases. As with any Twizy, you could buy the vehicle itself from Renault but only lease its battery pack. As such, the next owner will have to enter into a new rental agreement with the manufacturer in order to make `T5 AAA' mobile again.

Bentley Arnage RL

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: PLEASE NOTE: This lot possesses a MOT certificate valid until 30th November 2017.Bentley Arnage RL - 2006 Car Manufacturer: Bentley Car Model: Arnage RL Saloon Registration No: X19 AAA Chassis No: SCBLE37G56CH19437 Colour: Blue Gearbox Type: Auto - One former keeper and 4,800 recorded miles - 1 of just 383 'Arnage RL by Bentley Mulliner' cars (each of which was built to special order) 'Launched in 2001, the Arnage RL is the culmination of world-class coachbuilding that spans generations. It is a car that takes personalisation to a new level, where the vehicle is a canvas on which you can paint your vision. With its extended wheelbase, 2 inches (50mm) to the front and 8 inches (200mm) to the rear compartment, the RL retains the classic Arnage profile whilst offering even more palatial comfort for the passengers. But make no mistake; this is a car to drive. The turbocharged 6.75-litre V8 engine, harnessed by a highly engaging automatic gearbox, makes this an experience impossible to miss. The Arnage RL gave its owners the opportunity to realise virtually anything imaginable - all designed and handcrafted by the most skilled automotive artisans in the world. These are people who understand not only the heritage of Bentley, but also the pleasures of luxury in a contemporary world. From fashioners of burnished walnut and fine hides to the audio experts who can turn the interior of a Bentley into a concert hall, to specialists who can bring the cinema or television to the rear seat' (Bentley Motors). Just 383 examples of the 'Arnage RL by Bentley Mulliner' (to give the model its full title) were handbuilt from 2001 - 2011. None were to standard specification because each one was personalised according to the whim and taste of its first owner. With a clientele that included heads of state, A-list celebrities and the mega wealthy, the Crewe firm sought to ensure that its flagship four-door saloon / limousine could offer an unrivalled interior ambience. As well as a 250mm wheelbase (though, 450mm and 728mm stretches were available too), the Arnage RL gained uprated brake and suspension systems. Powered by a thoroughly revised, twin-turbocharged version of Bentley's iconic 6.75-litre V8 engine allied to automatic transmission, it was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 6.2 seconds and 155mph (unless armoured to B6 specification, a c.ú250,000 option!) Less ostentatious than a Rolls-Royce Phantom but in many ways no less beguiling to be chauffeured around in, any Arnage RL remains a very special motor car. Offered for sale with clear title by order of the High Court, this particular example has formed part of an extensive London-based private collection since 9th February 2012 when it was purchased from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London for ú75,000. Finished in Dark Sapphire Pearl with Cream leather upholstery and Dark Blue carpets, 'X19 AAA' wears Jack Barclay number plates. An HPi check reveals that (a) the Bentley has had one former keeper and (b) it is not recorded on their stolen, finance, security watch or insurance write off databases. While a UK Government Vehicle MOT History search shows that the Arnage RL was MOT tested at 3,317 (4/6/2010), 3,377 (24/6/2011), 4,206 (5/4/2012), 4,334 (5/3/2013), 4,365 (28/3/2014) and 4,566 (31/3/2015) miles. Now displaying some 4,800 miles to its odometer, this bespoke luxury saloon will hopefully possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale. Offered for sale with owner's handbook, service handbook (recording services at 1,351, 4,172, 4,334 and 4,362 miles), Rolls-Royce Used Vehicle Proforma Invoice, quick reference guides and sundry Jack Barclay invoices.

Desande Caprice

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: PLEASE NOTE: This lot possesses a MOT certificate valid until 14th March 2017.PLEASE NOTE: This lot is accompanied by an older type V5C Registration Document (Blue).Desande Caprice - 1987 Car Manufacturer: Desande Car Model: Caprice Sports Registration No: D19 AAA Chassis No: L156451T314395 Colour: White / Red Gearbox Type: Auto - Part of an extensive London-based private collection since 2002 - Chevrolet V8 engine, automatic transmission, power assisted steering, air-conditioning - Reputedly 1 of just 250 made Introduced at the Geneva Salon in 1980, the Desande Caprice was the brainchild of Belgian designer Danny G. Vandezande (hence Desande). Inspired by Mercedes-Benz's 500K / 540K Roadsters, the newcomer was based around a separate chassis equipped with independent front suspension, disc / drum brakes and power assisted steering. Featuring a choice of Ford or Chevrolet V8 engines allied to automatic transmission, the two-seater sported a wooden dashboard / door cappings, snug fitting hood, air-conditioning and leather upholstery. Bodied and trimmed by Grand Prix Metalcraft Ltd of London because Mr Vandezande opined that England was the only place where "the skills to build a classic car conforming to modern standards were sufficiently available", a limited production run of 250 cars was initially envisaged (though, how many Caprice Roadsters were actually built is unknown). Offered for sale with clear title by order of the High Court, this particular example has formed part of an extensive London-based private collection since 6th June 2002. Finished in Red over White with Red leather upholstery and a Tan hood, an HPi check reveals that (a) the Desande has had four former keepers and (b) it is not recorded on their stolen, finance, security watch or insurance write off databases. Accompanying invoices show that over the past fourteen years 'D19 AAA' has been treated to a refurbished radiator, new gearbox / back axle gaskets and replacement shock absorbers (2002), new fuse boxes (2005), refurbished Holley carburettor (2012), fresh starter motor / alternator / torsion bar rubbers / engine mounts (2013) and a brake system overhaul (2013). Seemingly last serviced by The Chelsea Workshop at an unwarranted 8,247 miles in July 2013 (c.200 miles ago), this eye-catching, Chevy-powered retro pastiche Roadster will hopefully possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale.

Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn - 1951 Car Manufacturer: Rolls-Royce Car Model: Silver Dawn Saloon Registration No: MRX 19 Chassis No: SFC82 Colour: Black Gearbox Type: Manual Unveiled in 1949, the Silver Dawn had the distinction of being the first Rolls-Royce to wear standard steel coachwork. Visually and mechanically indebted to its Bentley MKVI stablemate, the newcomer was powered by a 4257cc straight-six engine allied to four-speed manual transmission. Capable of over 90mph, the luxuriously appointed four-door saloon gained a larger 4566cc powerplant during 1951 and the option of four-speed automatic transmission the following year. Suspension was independent at the front and by live axle on semi-elliptic leaves at the rear. Braking was by servo-assisted drums all-round. A total of just 761 Silver Dawns had been manufactured by the time the model was supplanted by the Silver Cloud. Offered for sale with clear title by order of the High Court, this particular example has formed part of an extensive London-based private collection since 10th April 1989. Understood to be one of just 170 4.25-litre Silver Dawns made, chassis SFC 82 was delivered new to J. Plunkett Esq. during November 1951. Completed over four decades later, a handwritten valuation form on file claims that `The engine, gearbox, rear axle, suspension and brakes have all been overhauled . . . Vehicle has one owner from new and then myself . . . During the course of nine years it cost me over ú39,000 just to restore the car with original parts'. Accompanying invoices and estimates suggest that The Bentley Service Centre of Nine Elms and The Chelsea Workshop undertook at least part of the refurbishment. Starting readily upon inspection, the Silver Dawn's last major service (a 24,000 miles `C' schedule one) appears to have been carried out by The Chelsea Workshop at a cost of ú6,102.42 during May 2013 (less than 200 miles ago). An HPi check reveals that the Silver Dawn is not recorded on their stolen, finance, security watch or insurance write off databases.

Rolls-Royce Phantom

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: PLEASE NOTE: This lot possesses a MOT certificate valid until 30th November 2017.PLEASE NOTE: This lot is not accompanied by a V5C Registration Document. The new owner will have to apply for a replacement one by completing a V62 form and submitting it to the DVLA together with a fee of £25.Rolls-Royce Phantom - 2003 Car Manufacturer: Rolls-Royce Car Model: Phantom Saloon Registration No: M50 RRR Chassis No: SCA1568034UH00027 Colour: Blue Gearbox Type: Auto - One former keeper and 5,100 recorded miles - Dates from the first year of production (300 sales) and would have had a basic list price of ú250,000 'Luxury cars abound, but there's only one Rolls. And whatever one might think about the national origins of the new stewards, they seem to understand their mission. The new Phantom (the seventh generation of the name) has the craftsmanship, comfort, presence, and prestige of its predecessors. Call it tradition made modern' (Tony Swan, Car and Driver, May 2003) Less than five years after acquiring what is arguably the world's most famous luxury car marque, the BMW Group had not only engineered a brand new Rolls-Royce flagship but also erected a state-of-the-art production facility on the Goodwood Estate within which to assemble it. Launched on January 1st 2003, the seventh generation Phantom marked a technological step change from its predecessors yet was still unmistakably a Rolls-Royce. Based around a hand-welded extruded aluminium spaceframe chassis clothed with aluminium and composite panels, the newcomer featured a highly sophisticated independent air suspension system mounted on steel subframes (double wishbone front / multi-link rear) as well as speed-sensitive power assisted steering and massive four-wheel disc brakes. Developing some seventy-five percent of its peak torque at just 1,000rpm, the bespoke 6.75 litre V12 was eerily refined. Quoted as developing some 453bhp and 531lbft of torque and allied to six-speed automatic transmission, it gave the luxury saloon an improbable turn of speed with contemporary road testers achieving 0-60mph in 5.7 seconds and 149mph. Initially contentious, the Phantom's bold styling lent it a road presence that rivals simply could not match. Although, reviewers devoted almost as much ink to its rear-hinged 'coach' doors, discretely-mounted Teflon-coated umbrellas and matchless interior. Put simply BMW re-defined the luxury car market with its first 'clean sheet' Rolls-Royce design. While labelling any car as 'the best in the world' is these days deemed anachronistic, our American cousins did hail the new Phantom as 'The King of Cars'. Offered for sale with clear title by order of the High Court, this particular example has formed part of an extensive London-based private collection since 9th December 2011 when it was purchased from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London for ú96,000. Showing a warranted 3,593 miles at the time, the Phantom has since been serviced at 4,239 miles (3/10/13) and 4,688 miles (9/1/15). Finished in Light Metallic Blue with Beige leather upholstery, 'M50 RRR' was entrusted to Jack Barclay for the addition of highlighting coachlines at a cost of ú2,160 on 20th December 2011. An HPi check reveals that (a) the Phantom has had one former keeper and (b) it is not recorded on their stolen, finance, security watch or insurance write off databases. While a UK Government Vehicle MOT History search shows that the Rolls-Royce has been MOT tested at 2,417 (14/11/2006), 2,484 (13/2/2007), 2,875 (24/10/2007), 3,025 (5/11/2008), 3,113 (28/10/2009), 3,548 (2/11/2010), 3,579 (17/10/2011), 3,580 (18/10/2011), 3,889 (31/10/2012), 4,279 (30/10/2013), 4,639 (7/11/2014) and 5,052 (30/10/2015) miles. Now displaying some 5,100 miles to its odometer, this imposing luxury saloon will hopefully possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale.

Bentley Mulsanne

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: PLEASE NOTE: This lot possesses a MOT certificate valid until 1st December 2017 and now shows some 2,900 miles to its odometer.Bentley Mulsanne - 2012 Car Manufacturer: Bentley Car Model: Mulsanne Saloon Registration No: LJ12BCO Chassis No: SCBBA63Y1BC016089 Colour: Silver Gearbox Type: Auto - One owner from new and 2,400 recorded miles - Supplied by Jack Barclay and part of an extensive London-based collection 'The Mulsanne offers the owner-driver a truly enjoyable experience at the wheel. Most owners of this kind of car will prioritise refinement over driver appeal, so we must mark the Mulsanne down. But if your taste is for a sporting drive whatever type of car it comes in, the Mulsanne could well be the best luxury saloon in the world' (Autocar Magazine, Matt Prior) Hailed as the first 'clean sheet' Bentley design in eighty years (as opposed to a Rolls-Royce or Volkswagen dictated one), the Mulsanne was launched at the world famous Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2009 where one determined enthusiast bid $550,000 for the privilege of owning the first customer car. Massively engineered, the newcomer utilised a brand new chassis that featured all-round independent air suspension (double wishbone front / multi-link rear), vented four-wheel disc brakes (complete with ABS), Drive Dynamics Control (incorporating Comfort, Sport and Bentley modes) and speed sensitive power assisted steering. Accounting for some thirty hours of the six to nine weeks it takes to build each Mulsanne, its 6.75 litre OHV twin-turbocharged V8 was credited with developing 505bhp and 752lbft of torque. Allied to eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, the mighty powerplant enabled the 2585kg luxury four-door saloon to accelerate from 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds and onto 184mph. The opportunities to appreciate such performance on today's roads are few and far between. Thankfully, the same cannot be said of the Mulsanne's exterior and interior finishes with Bentley giving customers the choice of 114 paint colours, 21 carpet hues, 9 wood veneers, plus 24 interior leather hide shades as standard. Although, ticking too many options boxes quickly raised the ú225,000 base price to over ú300,000. In many ways an anachronism when compared to its lighter, more efficient four-wheel drive Bentley siblings, the rear-wheel drive Mulsanne remains unapologetically British and all the better for it. Offered for sale with clear title by order of the High Court, this particular example has formed part of an extensive London-based private collection since it was purchased from Jack Barclay as an ex-demonstrator for ú229,000. First registered on 29th March 2012 and finished in Tungsten over Moonbeam with Anthracite-piped Linen hide upholstery, 'LJ12 BCO' was built with a rear view camera, six-disc CD player, ambient interior mood lighting, adaptive cruise control, NAIM stereo, seat ventilation, jewel fuel filler cap, 3D retractable Flying 'B' mascot, embroidered Bentley emblems and polished 21in Classic alloy wheels. An HPi check reveals that (a) the Bentley has had no former keepers and (b) it is not recorded on their stolen, finance, security watch or insurance write off databases. While a UK Government Vehicle MOT History search shows that the luxury saloon was first MOT tested at 2,317 miles on 27th March 2015. Now displaying some 2,400 miles to its odometer, this imposing Mulsanne will hopefully possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale. Offered for sale with owner's handbook, service handbook (recording services at 782 and 1,853 miles), Jack Barclay New Vehicle Invoice, quick reference guides and sundry paperwork.

Ferrari F430 F1 Spider

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: PLEASE NOTE: This lot possesses a MOT certificate valid until 28th November 2017.PLEASE NOTE: The 8th digit of this lot's VIN is 'C' which denotes that it was built to right-hand specification for the UK market. F430 production finished in 2009 and so presumably the Spider was dry stored until being first UK road registered on 26th July 2012.Ferrari F430 F1 Spider - 2012 Car Manufacturer: Ferrari Car Model: F430 F1 Spider Convertible Registration No: D15 AAA Chassis No: ZFFEZ59C000162755 Colour: White Gearbox Type: Manual - One owner from new and 400 recorded miles 'Here's a milestone car. The F430 was the first no-buts Ferrari, the first Maranello product for which no excuses needed to be made. It was regarded by most critics as, if not perfect, as close to theoretical Ferrari road-car perfection as a Ferrari had ever been' (John Simister, EVO magazine, March 12th 2013). Unveiled at the Geneva Salon in March 2005, the F430 Spider was a modest 70kg heavier than its Berlinetta sibling. However, the structural strengthening this weight gain allowed meant that the newcomer was a dynamic match for its fixed roof stablemate under most circumstances (Richard Bremner commenting in Autocar magazine that he was only aware of any loss of rigidity perhaps one percent of the time). Styled by Pininfarina under the guidance of Frank Stephenson, the F430 Spider featured a reinforced windscreen and twin steel rollover hoops and could retract its fabric roof under an aluminium 'double bubble' tonneau cover in twenty seconds. The elliptical air intakes which dominated its nose recalled those of the Ferrari 156 'Sharknose' F1 car, while its tail treatment echoed that of the marque's revered Enzo hypercar. A flat underbody and highly effective rear diffuser generated real downforce as did the subtle but effective lip spoiler on the glazed engine cover. The F430 in both open and closed versions was the first modern Ferrari to feature an electronically controlled limited slip differential or 'E-diff' and a steering wheel-mounted 'manettino' switch. The latter enabled the driver to choose between five driving modes (altering the throttle, steering, damping and traction control settings etc in each instance). Derived from that of its F360 predecessor, the two-seater's aluminium chassis boasted improved torsional stiffness and played host to all-round independent suspension, four-wheel vented disc brakes (complete with ABS) and power assisted rack and pinion steering. Displacing 4308cc, its 'quad cam', 32-valve V8 was quoted as developing 483bhp and 343lbft of torque. Allied to either manual or F1-style 'paddle shift' transmission (both six-speed), it enabled the F430 Spider to sprint from 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds and onto over 193mph. The engine was also an aural delight with distinct 'key changes' at 4,500rpm and 7,000rpm on the way to its 8,500rpm redline. Naturally, such throttle induced music was best enjoyed roof down aboard a Spider! Notable as the penultimate naturally-aspirated, V8 mid-engined Ferrari and built in smaller numbers than its 458 successor, the F430 remains a 'tour de force' for any enthusiast driver. Offered for sale with clear title by order of the High Court, this particular example has formed part of an extensive London-based private collection since new. First registered on 26th July 2012 and finished in White with Red leather upholstery (the former carrying Red accents and the latter Cream piping / inserts), 'D15 AAA' wears HR Owen number plates. An HPi check reveals that (a) the Ferrari has had no former keepers and (b) it is not recorded on their stolen, finance, security watch or insurance write off databases. While a UK Government Vehicle MOT History search shows that the supercar was first MOT tested at 388 miles on 2nd July 2015. Now displaying just over 400 miles to its odometer, this stunning F430 Spider will hopefully possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale. Offered for sale with original book pack and invoices detailing H.R. Owen services at 92, 225 and 336 miles plus one from Jack Barclay for ú2,700 worth of colour styling.

The Viano turns every trip into an event - in a good way. Entering it is to step up into a brave, new world. Its vast windscreen bathes you in light while giving you almost Eddie Stobart-levels of forward vision. Completing the HGV-effect is a shift lever that sprouts conveniently from the fascia. In truth, you're probably sitting no higher than the driver of a Range Rover; after all, the Viano will fit most multi-storey car parks. But it's different and it's fun' (The Sunday Times, John Evans, 10th April 2014). Offered for sale with clear title by order of the High Court, this particular example has formed part of an extensive London-based private collection since new. Purchased from the Mercedes-Benz Retail Group (Ealing) for ú44,021.50, its impressive specification included a fridge, COMAND Sat-Nav, rear electric Panoramic glass sunroof, rear air-conditioning, electrically adjustable front seats, electrically operated sliding doors, 18in alloys, Obsidian Black paintwork and 'Lugano' Orion Grey leather upholstery. A long wheelbase model in the more luxurious Ambiente trim, it is powered by a 3-litre V6 turbodiesel (rated at 224bhp / 324lbft) allied to automatic transmission. An HPi check reveals that (a) the MPV has had no former keepers and (b) it is not recorded on their stolen, finance, security watch or insurance write off databases. First MOT tested at 4,776 miles on May 1st 2015, the Viano is currently undergoing a cherished number plate transfer (the number visible in the photos 'XLL 6' does not form part of the sale but is available by separate negotiation). Now showing just over 5,000 miles, this imposing Mercedes-Benz comes with a book pack showing a service at 4,046 miles will hopefully possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale.

Description: MG A 1500 Roadster - 1959 Car Manufacturer: MG Car Model: A 1500 Roadster Roadster Registration No: 587 UYM Chassis No: 650880548 Colour: White Gearbox Type: Manual A plaque in the engine compartment of this pretty MGA states that it was sold new by Nuffield (Australia) Pty. Ltd., part of British Motor Corporation (Australia). Australian cars have right hand drive steering and this 1500 Roadster is so equipped. It was apparently exported to New Zealand in 1961 where it remained until our English vendor acquired the car while living out there, and he brought it to England when he returned. It was first registered with the DVLA in July 2015. We are informed that the car has a "Stage 2" cylinder head and HRG Engineering rocker cover and it has received much expenditure in New Zealand in recent years, with invoices for such work apparently in the history file. Also present we are told is the 1961 New Zealand registration card. The vendor feels that the odometer reading of 131,000 miles is correct and he describes the car as being in "very good" condition in all respects.

Description: Daimler V8-250 - 1965 Car Manufacturer: Daimler Car Model: V8-250 Saloon Registration No: LGU967D Chassis No: P1A8238BW Colour: Maroon Gearbox Type: Auto This tidy Maroon V8 is understood to be completely original apart from a long list of desirable extras that include: power steering; Coopercraft brakes; Harvey Bailey handling kit; stainless steel exhaust system; oil cooler; Facet fuel pump; Kenlowe electric fan; wire wheels; and Coombs-style wheel arches. 'LGU 967D' currently displays an unwarranted 84,000 miles and is considered by the vendor to have 'excellent' bodywork, paintwork, Black interior trim, V8 engine and automatic transmission. It is now offered complete with green log book, Heritage Certificate, original handbook and a comprehensive history that includes a sizeable collection of invoices. The V8-250 was a derivative of the all-conquering MKII Jaguar. Its name was drawn from its engine - a lightweight, eight-cylinder one of 2,548cc. This was mated to a Borg Warner three-speed automatic or four-speed manual gearbox. Production continued until manufacture of all MKII derivatives ceased in 1969, by which time some 17,620 of the Daimler version had been made.

DeSoto Six Model K Tourer

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: DeSoto Six Model K Tourer - 1929 Car Manufacturer: DeSoto Car Model: Six Model K Tourer Tourer Registration No: SV 4978 Chassis No: K24298 Colour: Cream Gearbox Type: Manual Chrysler's DeSoto brand was incorporated in May 1928 and created to compete with the mid-price competitors of Oldsmobile, Mercury, Studebaker, Hudson and Willys. Quite why the newcomer was named after the Mississippi-discovering Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto seems, however, to have been lost in the mists of time. The initial product, dubbed the Model K, was manufactured alongside its Chrysler and Plymouth siblings at the corporation's Highland Park headquarters near Detroit. It also shared the body panels of the Plymouth, but was powered by a six rather than four-cylinder engine. The public liked what they saw and the Model K's first year sales created a record that remained unbroken for over 30 years. The tidy righthand drive Tourer version offered is finished in Cream, trimmed in Brown and rides on artillery wheels. It has benefited from a recent brake overhaul and oil/filter change and comes complete with full weather equipment, original handbook and V5C.

Beginning life as MKII Mini 1000, this particular example has only recently been transformed into a MKI Cooper Evocation. Repainted in its original Almond Green but with the additional of a White roof, the diminutive saloon boasts a wood rim steering wheel and front bucket seats to its re-trimmed interior. Riding on wider Cooper-style wheels, 'JBG 847F' also features a Cooper-style 998cc engine fed by twin SU carburettors and Cooper-style front disc brakes. The fitment of a MKI radiator grille and MKI tail lights help complete the illusion. Starting readily upon inspection and sounding as raucous and purposeful as a sporting Mini should, this delightful and convincing MKI Cooper Evocation is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document and fresh MOT certificate.

MG TD

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: PLEASE NOTE: Since the catalogue was published the vendor has informed us that this lot is fitted with a more modern five-speed manual gearbox to the benefit of its cruising ability.MG TD - 1952 Car Manufacturer: MG Car Model: TD Sports Registration No: 130 UYF Chassis No: TD9728 Colour: O.E.W. Gearbox Type: Manual - Recently repatriated from sunnier climes - The subject of extensive refurbishment inc. new seats, carpets, hood, sidescreens, tyre, etc. - 79,000 recorded miles and said to 'drive beautifully' This overtly pretty TD has recently been repatriated from sunnier, drier climes. Its Old English White bodywork is teamed with Green leather interior trim, black hood and Silver-coloured disc wheels. It has clearly benefited from a substantial degree of refurbishment that included the replacement of the seats, carpets, hood, sidescreens, tyres etc. The vendor informs us that the MG 'has only covered 79,459 miles from new and drives beautifully', and he presently classes the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, 1250cc XPAG engine and four-speed manual gearbox as all being in 'very good' condition, making '130 UYF' a potentially fine addition to any collection. Though visually similar to the earlier T Series cars, the TD was a full five inches wider and built around a more modern chassis derived for the Y-Type Saloon. Some 30,000 examples had been produced by the time the model was superseded by the TF in 1953 - 23,500 went to the USA alone.

Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn

Description: Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn - 1955 Car Manufacturer: Rolls-Royce Car Model: Silver Dawn Saloon Registration No: 487 YUH Chassis No: SVJ109 Colour: Shell Grey / Black Gearbox Type: Auto - The Silver Dawn remains among Rolls-Royce's rarest post-WW2 models (just 761 were made) - This example boasts matching chassis and engine numbers plus continuous history - An elegant and very nicely presented 'big bore', automatic gearbox, big boot car Unveiled in 1949, the Silver Dawn had the distinction of being the first Rolls-Royce to wear standard steel coachwork. Visually and mechanically indebted to its Bentley MKVI stablemate, the newcomer was initially powered by a 4257cc straight-six engine (though, capacity was increased to 4566cc during 1951) allied to either manual or automatic transmission - both four-speed. Suspension was independent at the front and by live axle on semi-elliptic leaves at the rear. Braking was by servo-assisted drums all-round. A total of just 761 Silver Dawns had been manufactured by the time the model was supplanted by the Silver Cloud. A matching chassis and engine numbers car with continuous history, this particular example was supplied new by Rippon Bros Ltd to the Thomas Lumb Co Ltd of Skipton, Yorkshire. A mill owner, Mr Lumb kept the Silver Dawn until its purchase by Mr Walter Greaves from the Viceroy Carriage Co. in 1966. Exported to America by its third keeper - Mr Richard Werby - the following decade, the Rolls-Royce had covered some 106,000 miles by the time it next changed hands in 2001. Like his predecessors, Dr Stephen Davidson was determined to maintain the luxury saloon in fine fettle spending some $41,576.39 on it over the following ten years (invoices for the corresponding maintenance / refurbishment work remain on file). Repatriated in 2011 at an indicated 118,000 miles, the Silver Dawn was subsequently allocated the age-related registration number '487 YUH'. Forming part of a private museum collection in more recent times, this elegant and very nicely presented Rolls-Royce boasts the 'big bore' 4566cc engine and four-speed automatic gearbox. Offered for sale with copy build sheets, assorted newspaper articles relating to Mr Lumb, a Rolls-Royce handbook (1953), automatic gearbox instruction card and warrantee, Smiths radiomobile instruction book, numerous of invoices for thousands of pounds/dollars and the original RF60.

Description: Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Sport - 1984 Car Manufacturer: Porsche Car Model: 911 Carrera 3.2 Sport Coupe Registration No: B890OPJ Chassis No: WP0ZZZ91ZFS100355 Colour: Grand Prix White Gearbox Type: Manual - UK supplied car, original under boot sticker and space saver spare wheel - Warranted 99,800 miles from new, engine overhauled less than 1,500 miles ago - Recently recommissioned by M R Performance Cars of Salisbury The 911 Carrera 3.2 made its debut at the 1983 Frankfurt Motorshow. Estimated to be 80 percent new, the model's 3164cc (hence '3.2') flat-six engine was credited with developing some 231bhp and 209lbft of torque. Allied to a five-speed transmission, it proved both rev-happy and flexible. Capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and 153mph, the Carrera 3.2 was progressively refined and updated over the course of its six-year production run. From 1984, those looking for that little bit extra in terms of poise and road presence could opt for the 'Sport' package (later known as 'Sport Equipment') which included a deeper front valance, 'tea tray' rear spoiler, Bilstein dampers and 16-inch Fuchs forged alloy wheels. Originally finished in Grand Prix White with Navy Blue pinstripe upholstery and a sunroof, this particular example was supplied new to Mr Jacobs of Henley-on-Thames. The presence of eight service stamps up to 73,657 miles not to mention a wealth of accompanying MOT certificates mean that the vendor is happy to warrant the current odometer reading of 99,800 miles as representing the total covered from new. Treated to an engine overhaul less than 1,500 miles ago before being dry stored for nigh-on a decade, the Porsche was recommissioned by M R Performance Cars of Salisbury just a few months ago at a cost of some ú3,055.68. As well as a thorough service, attention was paid to the 911's brake system, fuel system, sensors, engine mounts and washer pump etc. Driven over 1,000 trouble-free miles since then, the Carrera 3.2 has also benefited from a partial repaint. Still sporting its original under boot specification sticker and unused space saver spare wheel (the latter complete with tie-on factory warning label), 'B890 OPJ' appears to have led something of a charmed life. Offered for sale with service book, sundry invoices and MOT certificate valid until 18th October 2017.

Morris 14/6 Series III Saloon

Description: Morris 14/6 Series III Saloon - 1938 Car Manufacturer: Morris Car Model: 14/6 Series III Saloon Saloon Registration No: BEW 234 Chassis No: S3/FS60568 Colour: Black Gearbox Type: Manual - Reputedly 1 of just six surviving examples known to the pre-1940 Morris Register - Remarkably well-preserved thanks in part to 30 plus years' spent in dry storage - First registered in Huntingdonshire and understood to have been a staff car at RAF Warboys A car to make William Morris - or indeed any manufacturer - proud, this 14/6 Series III Saloon has survived remarkably well since it was first road registered as 'BEW 234' by Huntingdon County Council on October 1st 1938. Sporting a chrome-plated (rather than painted) radiator shell and braided silk interior pull handles for its rear seat passengers, the Morris is understood to have served as an Air Ministry staff car at RAF Warboys. A handwritten annotation to the continuation buff logbook in its accompanying history file indicates that the four-door saloon was subsequently sold to Arthur William Newman Esq on 19th February 1944. Proprietor of the local Supply Stores, Mr Newman used 'BEW 234' for delivering goods to his best customers into the 1960s. Relocating to Hounslow, West London thereafter with Lewis Nevile White Esq, the 14/6 Series III was laid-up in a garage during the late 1970s. Left to slumber for over thirty years, the Morris was recommissioned by its previous keeper via a thorough service, brake system overhaul, reconditioned Jackall system, new 6-volt batteries and fresh cross-ply tyres. Starting readily upon inspection, its 1.8 litre OHV six-cylinder engine is thought to have been overhauled in the past. Boasting synchromesh on third and fourth gears, 'BEW 234' is said to possess a surprising turn of speed for a 1930s saloon. Pleasingly retaining its original Brown leather upholstery and some of its factory-applied Black paintwork, the Morris exudes a wonderful patina. The doors all open and close with a satisfying 'thunk' and overall the car gives an impression of solidity which perhaps explains its longevity. Reputedly one of just six surviving 14/6 Series III saloons known to the pre-1940 Morris Register, 'BEW 234' is just the sort of car that would have taken spectators to the first Goodwood race meetings or witnessed Sir Stirling Moss's Prescott debut etc.

Lotus Elan +2

Description: Lotus Elan +2 - 1969 Car Manufacturer: Lotus Car Model: Elan +2 Coupe Registration No: BGU853G Chassis No: 50/1070 Colour: Carnival Red Gearbox Type: Manual - Documented history file to support the 74,000 recorded miles including numerous invoices - Fitted with a replacement Lotus galvanised chassis and Roto-flex driveshaft couplings - A slightly older restoration that has been freshly serviced and issued with a 'no advisories' MOT "The uncanny cornering powers of this remarkable machine equal and probably exceed those of any production car we have driven before: similarly the handling and brakes are certainly not bettered." (Motor magazine, September 1967, re the +2). The Elan name was first applied to Lotus's oh-so-neat, Ron Hickman-penned two-seater Roadster of 1962. It comprised a steel backbone chassis clothed in a lightweight fiberglass body, all powered by a 1558cc Cosworth DOHC version of Ford's proven 'Kent' engine. With independent suspension and disc brakes all-round, the Elan was notably light and nimble. However, it was also tight on space and in June 1967 the company launched the Elan +2 for those in need of more accommodation. Based on a lengthened and widened version of the original chassis, it boasted a lower drag co-efficient and superior road-holding; the latter courtesy of a six-inch wider track and larger tyres. Lotus summarised its intent by saying 'the +2 is designed to carry two adults and two children on a long holiday in comfort'. The subject of a slightly older restoration, 'BGU 853G' is reportedly accompanied by a documented history file that supports its 74,000 recorded miles. To SE specification (Weber carburettors, c.118bhp), the 1558cc twin-cam engine boasts a stainless-steel exhaust and is said to be in 'good condition', and to 'maintain good oil pressure'. While the four-speed manual gearbox is rated as 'good' too. As well as a Lotus galvanised chassis, the Elan has benefited from the fitment of new Roto-flex driveshaft couplings. The vendor tells us that: 'The overall appearance of the car is presentable albeit with the age-related marks typical of an older restoration. A repaint would improve the exterior but the interior remains smart. A fresh, 'no advisories' MOT certificate has been issued and a full service recently undertaken'.

Bentley Continental R

Description: Bentley Continental R - 1997 Car Manufacturer: Bentley Car Model: Continental R Saloon Registration No: R606RSS Chassis No: SCBZB15C5WCH63073 Colour: B.R.G. Gearbox Type: Auto - A beautiful Continental R first registered to Hartlepool house builders Cecil M Yuill Limited - Just four recorded keepers; company, then company owner, then vendors BDC Member father-in-law, then vendor - Only 39,900 recorded miles with numerous maintenance invoices and previous MOT certificates This Bentley is appropriately coloured in British racing green paint with a cream and green leather interior and is a beautiful example that the vendor describes as being in "excellent" condition in every way. Within the generous history file are copies of previous registration documents that state that the car was sold new in October 1997 to Hartlepool property developers and house builders Cecil M Yuill Limited. In April 2006 R100 SEF (as it was then registered) had a change of recorded ownership from the company to a Mr Yuill, presumably the person who had been driving the car since new. During this time copies of maintenance invoices on file show that the car was maintained by Reg Vardy in Houghton-Le-Spring. Almost a year later in March 2007 ownership passed to the father of our vendor and the Continental R was registered to his residence in London's Chelsea on the most appropriate Bentley number plate 4489 TU. The gentleman was reportedly very active within the Bentley Drivers Club and sold a Derby Bentley when he acquired the Continental R, and he took part in many club events both in the UK and Europe in this Bentley and also in his Corniche and S3. Upon his passing-away, ownership passed to his daughter and son-in-law in May 2013 and they have used the car sparingly. Supplied with a generously sized folder containing copies of maintenance invoices, previous registration documents, and previous MOT certificates, we are told other more recent invoices from highly renowned Bentley specialists will also be included in the file.

Bristol 407

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Bristol 407 - 1962 Car Manufacturer: Bristol Car Model: 407 Saloon Registration No: 559 JTV Chassis No: 407-6040 Colour: Lava Red Gearbox Type: Auto The 407 was in many ways a landmark car for the quintessentially British manufacturer Bristol. It was the first to be produced since the company's car and aviation divisions had gone their separate ways. It was also the first to be powered by an engine other than Bristol's own BMW-derived straight-six that, after 14 years of sterling service, now lacked the output of more contemporary units. In its place sat a Canadian-built 5130cc (313ci) Chrysler V8 which, with an output of 250bhp, endowed the 407 with literally double the power of the outgoing 406 and, in instead of the familiar four-speed manual transmission it drove through a three-speed Chrysler Torque flight automatic unit. The front suspension now featured coil rather than leaf springing and the rack and pinion steering was superseded by a Marles worm-type system. The styling, more evolution than revolution, resulted in sharper lines and flatter panels than exhibited by its predecessor. Motor magazine's period road test of the model proved it capable of sprinting to 60mph in 9.2 seconds and accelerating on to a top speed of 125.2mph. Copies of this Bristol's factory records show it was delivered new to sole dealer Anthony Crook Motors on June 6, 1962. It is one of an estimated 88 made, of which only 20 or so apparently remain in roadworthy condition. The original engine was replaced by a 'new old stock' unit in 2008 at an indicated 42,000 miles, while the Beige interior was treated to a sympathetic ú4,260 refurbishment in 2010 and the steering box overhauled still more recently. Finished in eye-catching Lava Red, '559 JTV' now registers an unwarranted but entirely feasible 63,000 miles and is being offered complete with a detailed service history that evidently confirms this rare English classic has been regularly and properly maintained throughout its 54 years.

Description: Bentley R-Type Straight-Eight Special 'The Fire Engine' - 1952 Car Manufacturer: Bentley Car Model: R-Type Straight-Eight Special 'The Fire Engine' Tourer Registration No: PMB 273 Chassis No: B266SR Colour: Blue Gearbox Type: Auto - Built by a former director of Rolls-Royce motorcars, and professional engineer, in the 1990s as a tribute to the 'Scalded Cat' Bentleys - Powered by a 6.5 litre Rolls-Royce B81 straight-eight engine allied to automatic transmission - Veteran of numerous rallies including the Bentley Drivers' Club's Tour of South Africa in 2003 (c.4,000 miles) Rolls-Royce built two straight-eight powered Bentleys using the 'B'-series eight-cylinder variant of the standard six-cylinder engine (one of which was loaned to HRH Prince Philip who was apparently reluctant to hand it back). These were dubbed 'Scalded Cats' and in the mid-1960s Robin Moore started to plan a similar car based on a R-Type Chassis. He was working in the experimental department of Rolls-Royce at the time and an internal memo dated August 1965 sees him asking if any ex-test cars would become available. This plan did not come to anything with the acquisition of an S1 Continental Convertible in the late 1960s consuming all available time and cash and the collapse of Rolls-Royce and his move to Surrey to work for W. S. Atkins closing off further progress. In the mid-1980s he had bought a Harry Rose-bodied MkVI Special and his interest in a B80-engined special was reignited. He acquired a Thorneycroft Nubian Fire Engine for its powerplant and an R-Type that had rotten coachwork but a sound chassis and running gear was also sourced. The body was stripped off the Bentley and work started on modifications to the chassis. The cruciform was cut and the front section moved back in the chassis by twelve inches. The front chassis side rails were extended and reinforced to provide space for the longer engine. All of the running gear was overhauled and meticulously reinstated. An elegant open tourer body was designed and commissioned in traditional ash framing and aluminium panels and the car was completed in late 1992. During the development, a B81 with its larger capacity of 6.52litres had been found and this replaced the B80. The R-Type automatic gearbox was retained and an R-Type Continental back axle ratio fitted which with the 17-inch wheels, provides relaxed cruising. At this stage he was persuaded that an elegant blue and grey colour scheme was preferable to the bright red he had envisaged to fit with the name. Used and enjoyed for numerous trips around the UK, the Special also ventured as far afield as South Africa for the Bentley Drivers' Club's 2003 tour of that country which saw participants cover circa 4,000 miles! However, the B81 engine that had been fitted was from an army training establishment and it became clear that it had had a hard life. In 2008 the opportunity came up to buy a brand new, unused B81G which is the variant of the B81 designed to run on propane or natural gas. It therefore has a much higher compression ratio - increased from 6.4:1 to 8.0:1 which modern fuels can run without any issue and provides a further boost in output to ensure that it is, in Rolls-Royce terminology 'adequate' (a standard B81 unit is estimated to develop 220bhp and 330lbft of torque). A full and detailed history is provided with the car as is weather equipment and a MOT certificate valid until October 2017.

Fitted with an enlarged 1962cc 'twin-cam' engine developing some 131bhp, it inherited the longer wheelbase platform and all wheel disc brakes of its older 1750 GTV sibling. This UK supplied RHD example is finished in green with tan vinyl interior and is described as being an extensive older restoration that was off the road from 1989 to 2016 due the demise of the previous owner. It is understood to have had just three previous owners with ownership transferring into the late owner's wife's name in 1998. The odometer registers c.79,000 believed genuine miles, which is supported by old MOTs and invoices from 1978-1989. There is also letter from the original owner dated 11th November 1977 that certifies, at that time, that the car had had one lady driver and the mileage at that time of 27,000 miles was a 'genuine and true reading'. Some light body restoration was carried out in 1983 including new sills, rear wheel arches and a near side door followed by a glass-out respray. Stored from 1989 to 2015, recent recommissioning work includes a brake over haul, head gasket and water pump as well as replacing numerous other parts. The vendor describes the body and paint as "excellent" and the engine (including a detailed engine bay), electrics, transmission and interior as "very good".

Thus, quite a few examples - including this one - were thoroughly Ziebart rust-proofed before being squirreled away in dry storage. Not road registered until 24th June 1991, the 2+2-seater was acquired by its second private keeper some two years later who treated it to the following sympathetic and period-style upgrades: a beautifully engineered (and possibly unique) rear wash-wipe, wooden Moto-lita steering wheel, stainless steel exhaust, full-length Britax sunroof, tailored / removable load cover, detachable dash-mounted search light, Black leather upholstery (to factory specification), security locks to the doors / bootlid and Minilite-type alloys. Finished in its original shade of Vermillion Red, the GT is warranted to have covered just 13,400 miles from new. Said to 'drive wonderfully in the way that only a very low mileage, unrestored car can', 'MGB 89V' has been freshly serviced and is offered for sale with a 'no advisories' MOT certificate. Ready to show and enjoy, this clearly much-loved GT is described by the seller as being in 'excellent' condition with regard to its 1798cc engine, four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox, electrical equipment, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim.

For some time displayed in a museum it now comes to market complete with old VE60 logbook that confirms its Surrey registration, owner's manual, parts book, various receipts and some additional history. The model is among the rarest of Austin's open-top offerings and 'HPF 693' is thought to be one of only 27 remaining. The vendor views its bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, four-cylinder engine and four-speed manual gearbox as all being in 'excellent' order. A rare opportunity for sun-loving classic car drivers everywhere. History shows the Austin 10 to have become a best seller for the company and a mainstay of the model range until 1947. The Conway was a Cabriolet version of the Cambridge Series.

The SL is offered complete with original Blaupunkt stereo and CD auto-changer and its service history initially with main dealers and then marque specialists.

Jaguar XK120 Roadster

Description: Jaguar XK120 Roadster - 1952 Car Manufacturer: Jaguar Car Model: XK120 Roadster Roadster Registration No: YWG 503 Chassis No: 672627 Colour: Pastel Green Gearbox Type: Manual An eye-catching sight in period Pastel Green, this lovely lefthand drive Roadster has had just three owners from new and only one for the last 48 years. A remarkably original, unrestored, matching numbers example even down to its cylinder head, it has undoubtedly benefited greatly from a life in the California sunshine and being garaged when not in use. A recent ú5,500 recommission means it is now ready for a new keeper to add to the existing relatively modest mileage of 66,000. The vendor variously grades the Jaguar as having an 'excellent' XK engine, 'very good' Roadster bodywork and manual transmission, 'average' paintwork, and 'poor' Green interior trim. UK registered and equipped with original-style Ace number plates, 'YNG 503' should be eligible for a number of significant historic events, including the Mille Miglia. The stunning-looking XK120 Roadster caused a sensation when it was launched at the London Motor Show of 1948. Capable of 120 mph and more (hence the name), it immediately assumed the mantle of the world's fastest production car. The equally elegant Fixed Head Coupe version followed in 1951 with the Drop Head Coupe completing the range in 1953. The key to the car's stunning performance was its all new, alloy-headed DOHC 3.4-litre, straight-six engine, the basic design of which successfully powered a whole range of Jaguars until the late '80s. In standard form the output was 160bhp, but in SE (Special Equipment) guise (which included firmer suspension and a twin exhaust) this rose to 180bhp, and with the C-Type head installed nearer 200bhp was on tap. In testing a Fixed Head SE XK120 in 1952, Autocar achieved a 0-60mph time of 9.9 seconds. The 120's suspension was independent by wishbones and torsion bars at the front and by live axle mounted on semi-elliptic leaf springs at the rear.

Description: Rolls-Royce 20/25 Sports Saloon - 1933 Car Manufacturer: Rolls-Royce Car Model: 20/25 Sports Saloon Saloon Registration No: BPA 440 Chassis No: GGA3 Colour: Black / Grey Gearbox Type: Manual - Bespoke Abbott coachwork as featured in The Autocar (16/2/1934) - Pictured in 'Coachwork on Rolls-Royce 1906-1939' by L. Dalton amongst others - Original registration number, engine and mother of pearl inlays Highlighting its `straight waistline, swept tail, and swept valanced wings and running boards', The Autocar also pictured chassis GGA3 as part of an article entitled `Coachwork of Character - A Review of Special Bodies of All Types for Large and Small Chassis' which was published on February 16th 1934. One of just nine 20/25 chassis to be clothed by E.D. Abbott Ltd of Farnham, the Sports Saloon was supplied new to Mrs Duffus of Cumberland Court, London W1. The Rolls-Royce's elegant exterior was complemented by an equally stylish interior featuring mother-of-pearl inlays as well as leather upholstery and silk pulls. Intended for use `in the UK - mainly touring' and to carry two passengers most of the time, the Sports Saloon belonged to tank commander Lt Colonel C.M.F. Deakin by late 1945. Thereafter, it is known to have passed through the hands of Colonel R.J.K. Fenton (Woodbridge), Paddon Bros (London), Dr F.L. Lawson (Ontario), Dr J.C. Wain (Pennsylvania), James F. Labadie (Ohio), Dale W. Beavers (Ohio), John H. Parnell (Louisiana), Lyn Thomas (Dyfed), Les J. Jones (New Tredegar) and Norman Cawood (Skipton). Extensively restored by Mr Cawood between 1995 and 2010, chassis GGA3 has since been treated to a new headlining, stainless steel exhaust and Wilton carpets not to mention being reunited with its original `BPA 440' number plate. Illustrated in `Coachwork on Rolls-Royce 1906-1939' (L. Dalton), `The Flying Lady' magazine and the Rolls-Royce Owners' Club's 20/25 handbook, this most attractive Sports Saloon has benefited from much recent cosmetic and mechanical work following its acquisition as part of a business deal by the vendor, a lifelong Roll-Royce collector, and performed extremely well on a recent road test. Offered with a fresh MoT and ready to be enjoyed, BPA 440 is only being offered to help fund other projects.

Austin-Healey 3000 MKIIA

Description: Austin-Healey 3000 MKIIA - 1963 Car Manufacturer: Austin-Healey Car Model: 3000 MKIIA Sports Registration No: VAS 842 Chassis No: HBJ7L23554 Colour: Black Gearbox Type: Manual This very tidy and original-looking 3000 is finished in Black, trimmed in Tan leather and rides on painted wire wheels. Originally an American export model, it was dispatched on May 15, 1963 to the dealer in Jacksonville, Florida. It remained in the US until being repatriated in 2003 and was then treated to a restoration and conversion to righthand drive between 2005 and 2008. The Healey was then enjoyed and maintained by its owner until his passing, winning Austin-Healey Club concours awards on two occasions during 2012. That same year the car was granted a very positive condition report by the Club, which forms part of the history file, together with a Heritage Certificate and MOT valid to August 11 next year. The indicated mileage presently stands at an unwarranted 63,000 and the vendor views the plush interior trim as 'excellent', and the bodywork, paintwork, straight-six engine and four-speed manual gearbox as all being in 'very good' condition. An attractive example of an increasingly sought after model. Launched to great acclaim at the 1952 London Motor Show, the 'Big' Healey enjoyed steady development, with the original four-cylinder cars giving way to the 100-Six of 1956, which was followed by the first of the 3000s in 1959 and the MKII 3000 in 1961. Identifiable by its new grille and bonnet air intake, the MKII was still available as a two-seater (BN7) or four-seater (BT7), but power was increased to 132bhp, courtesy of three 1.5 inch SUs on separate inlet manifolds. These, however, proved difficult to balance and the relatively short-lived MKIIA introduced in January 1962 featured better breathing courtesy of a pair of 2 inch SUs, plus wind-up windows, superior hood and wrap-around windscreen. A total of 6,113 BJ7s were manufactured before the model was supplanted by the MKIII in October 1963.

Description: Austin A40 Farina - 1963 Car Manufacturer: Austin Car Model: A40 Farina Saloon Registration No: 4560 DP Chassis No: A2S953177 Colour: Maroon Gearbox Type: Manual Historic rally drivers will instantly recognise this Maroon A40 as the one campaigned with great success by the late Don Pither - a man also known for his informative books on the Reliant marque and being co-founder of the Historic Rally Car Register. On Don's passing '4560 DP' was inherited by his son, who has since treated it to a comprehensive rolling restoration. The bodywork, ravaged by no less than 10 Historic Monte Carlo Rallies, was comprehensively refurbished and repainted. The A series engine was fully overhauled courtesy of many parts supplied by ace A series engine builder Swiftune, while retaining the original block and rare Mini-Cooper big valve and ported cylinder head - once completed the unit showed some 70bhp and strong torque on the rolling road. The vendor now classes the high-specification competition Austin's bodywork, paintwork and engine as 'excellent', the (roller bearing) 1275 Midget gearbox as 'very good' and the Grey and Beige interior as 'average'.

Road-going versions of the model were also a force to be reckoned with and remain on the shortlist of many a performance driver. The lefthand drive example offered here hails from 1990. Its Black bodywork teamed with a Black leather interior certainly endows the car with a suitably aggressive look. Its turbocharged four-cylinder engine develops 180bhp, which is sufficient to thrust the practical four-door Saloon to 60mph in around 6.5 seconds and on to a top speed of over 130mph. 'H898 VHE' boasts uprated springs, adjustable dampers and new original style wheels. The vendor describes the engine and gearbox as 'excellent' and says the Integrale 'drives very well'. It comes with the original stamped-up service book, maintenance bills and an MOT into October 2017.

Delivered new to its first owner in Newmarket during September/October 1936, it was subsequently acquired by a Mr L Camidge in 1965, Mr Tim Dale in 1980, Mr Mike Cummins in 1998, and Mr Brian Garratt in 2003. `DGY 755' was treated to a thorough `chassis up' restoration by an enthusiast during the 1980s, which included a complete refurbishment of the interior. The Alvis has driven less than 1,500 miles since the work was completed and the vendor grades the bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, four-speed all-synchromesh manual gearbox and 2.7 litre engine as all being in `good' order.

By 2000 it was deemed in need of a general refresh and was treated to a full engine overhaul, new springs, kingpins, brakes and tyres, plus a complete retrim of the interior. The vendor now grades the bodywork, interior, four-cylinder engine and four-speed manual gearbox as 'very good' and the paintwork as 'good', and informs us that the car 'runs nicely and is fully functional and ready to enjoy'. Having had little recent use, the P2 is now seeking a new home and is being offered complete with 'lots of interesting paperwork'. Rover's 10hp P2 model was launched in 1939 and produced until 1947, with very few examples made pre-war but some 2,640 post the hostilities. The 1340cc engine by now produced 48bhp and the four-speed gearbox boasted synchromesh on the top two ratios.

Its last three keepers have all been mechanical engineers - the first treated it to a complete body restoration; the second carried out such improvements as Waxoyling and the fitment of stainless steel sills; and the vendor's continued rolling programme of restoration has included: the installation of new door bottoms and full respray; revarnishing of the woodwork; the fitment of a new Gold Seal engine and clutch just 400-plus miles ago. The Morris's upgraded specification includes brake servo, alternator and additional instruments, and the vendor currently grades the engine as 'excellent', bodywork and paintwork as 'very good', transmission as 'good' and interior trim as 'average'.

Description: NSU 1200 TT - 1969 Car Manufacturer: NSU Car Model: 1200 TT Saloon Registration No: EPX570H Chassis No: 3670614619 Colour: Alfa Rot Gearbox Type: Manual - Former Autocar road test car and part of NSU's contemporary UK press fleet - 1 of just 9 survivors known to the DVLA, recent engine overhaul and front suspension refurbishment - Intriguing Mini Cooper S rival, MOT'd till November 2017 An evolution of the NSU Prinz 1000 TT, the 1200 TT (Tourist Trophy) was launched in June 1967. Marketed as a sports saloon in much the same vein as the Mini Cooper S or Fiat Abarth 850TC, both of which it crossed swords with in the European Touring Car Championship, the newcomer was powered by a mid / rear-mounted 1171cc SOHC four-cylinder engine allied to four-speed manual transmission. Boasting an oil cooler, all-round independent suspension, twin carburettors and front disc brakes, the compact four-seater was renowned for its nimble handling and nigh on 100mph performance. First registered as 'EPX 570H' on 15th October 1969, this particular right-hand drive example is notable for having formed part of NSU's contemporary press fleet. As well as being featured in the company's 'An invitation . . .' sales brochure, the 1200 TT acquitted itself with honours when pitted against a Mini 1275GT in Autocar magazine's December 1969 issue, copies of which are included in the sale. The magazine noting that the German machine was faster, freer revving, less cramped and more refined than its British rival. One of just nine 1200 TTs currently known to the DVLA, 'EXP 570H' has recently benefited from an engine overhaul (including new piston rings, bearings and timing chains) not to mention a front suspension refurbishment (uprated Spax adjustable dampers and poly bushes). Finished in Alfa Rot with Black cloth upholstery and displaying a credible but unwarranted 76,000 miles to its odometer, the sports saloon is variously described by the vendor as being in 'good' (bodywork, paintwork, gearbox), 'very good' (engine, electrical equipment) or 'excellent' (interior trim) order. With prices of LHD examples soaring on the Continent, 'EXP 570H' looks to be very good value especially given its wonderful provenance.

Bristol 401

Description: Bristol 401 - 1952 Car Manufacturer: Bristol Car Model: 401 Coupe Registration No: VSJ 780 Chassis No: 401/1094 Colour: Cambridge Grey Gearbox Type: Manual - 1 of just 618 made, matching chassis and engine numbers - Recent bare metal repaint, sundry rechroming and mechanical recommissioning "This, indeed, is the car for the connoisseur. It can only be modesty on the part of the Bristol publicity boys which has prevented them from quoting as the 401's slogan 'The Best Car in Britain'" (Motor Sport magazine, January 1953). Introduced in Autumn 1949, the 401 was characterised by its super-smooth, aerodynamic bodywork. Honed in the Bristol Aeroplane Company's wind tunnel and built using Milanese coachbuilder Touring's 'Superleggera' technique, it boasted a commendably lithe kerb weight (c.2,700lbs). Equipped with transverse-leaf independent front suspension and hydraulic drum brakes, the newcomer proved a notably fine handler taking Touring Class wins on both the Cannes and Tulip Rallies during 1951. Powered by a 1971cc OHV straight-six engine allied to four-speed manual transmission, the elegant sports saloon promised nigh-on 100mph performance. Only in production for four years (by which time a mere 618 are thought to have been made), the model's exclusive ú3,212 13s 4d price tag was a reflection of the aircraft quality materials used in its construction. Supplied new by Anthony Crook Ltd of Hersham, Surrey, this particular example - chassis 401/1094 - was dry stored for some sixteen years prior to entering the current ownership. An enthusiast who had driven Bristols on various historic rallies, the vendor treated `VSJ 780' to a bare metal repaint and sundry rechroming plus some sympathetic mechanical recommissioning. As well as a new cylinder head gasket, the original `matching numbers' engine benefited from new core plugs, flushed out waterways and overhauled carburettors. The radiator core was attended to as were the water pump, starter solenoid, wiring and brakes. Finished in Cambridge Grey Metallic with Dark Blue leather upholstery, the Bristol is variously described by the vendor as being in `good' (electrical equipment), `very good' (bodywork, paintwork, engine, interior trim) or `excellent' (gearbox) condition. Offered for sale with parts manual invoices and various vehicle documents.

Austin-Healey 100

Description: Austin-Healey 100 - 1954 Car Manufacturer: Austin-Healey Car Model: 100 Sports Registration No: PPT 848 Chassis No: BN1156396 Colour: Spruce Green Gearbox Type: Manual - A home market car in the current family ownership for 40-plus years - An older restoration with supporting photographs - Recent gearbox overhaul by JME Healeys Donald Healey's eponymous company built a prototype two-seater sports car for display at the 1952 London Motor Show. It was based on Austin A90 Atlantic mechanicals and sported a notably sleek body designed by Gerry Coker and built by Tickford. It was dubbed the 'Healey Hundred' and, subject to a suitably encouraging response, Healey planned to build production versions in-house at his Warwick factory. As things transpired, the Ice Blue prototype so excited Austin's Managing Director, Leonard Lord, that he struck a deal to build the car in volume at Longbridge. The newcomer was renamed the Austin-Healey 100/4 and the rest is history. The 100/4's chassis was a departure from the company's previous backbone designs and comprised a pair of three-inch square box-section side members. The car had 11in drum brakes all round, while the front suspension was independent by coil springs and the rear featured a traditional 'live' axle supported by semi-elliptic leaf springs. A 1953 BN1 tested by Motor returned a top speed of 106mph and achieved the 0-60mph dash in 11.2 seconds. A total of 10,688 BN1s were produced between January 1953 and 1955. This lovely-looking home market 100/4 is finished in Spruce Green matched with a Green leather interior. The subject of an older restoration, 'PPT 848' has remained within the same family ownership for over 40 years, though apparently had little use since the last full service. The vendor these days regards the bodywork and paintwork as 'very good' and the 2.6-litre engine and interior trim as 'good', while the three-speed manual overdrive gearbox has recently been overhauled by JME Healeys. He is now offering the Healey complete with new battery and history file containing photos of the restoration, plus sundry invoices and old MOTs etc.

Jaguar E-Type V12 Coupe

Description: Jaguar E-Type V12 Coupe - 1973 Car Manufacturer: Jaguar Car Model: E-Type V12 Coupe Coupe Registration No: UEC413M Chassis No: 1S51878BW Colour: Red Gearbox Type: Auto - In long term storage prior to current ownership - Over ú13,000 spent since 2008 on engine, cooling system, etc. - Regularly used on the London to Brighton Run 'The turbine-like smoothness with which the engine provides a sustained shove in the back is almost uncanny, the more so when one accelerates hard in top gear without even a gearchange to interrupt one's headlong dash into the distance' - Autocar, July 5, 1973 By 1971, Jaguar's jaw-dropping E-Type had been in production for a decade. Despite continual improvements, new emissions legislation in the all-important American market threatened to strangle the big cat's performance. Jaguar responded by giving its revered sportscar fresh claws in the shape of a 5343cc V12 developed from the stillborn XJ13 Le Mans project. The new engine was both effortlessly powerful and eerily refined. With some 272bhp and 304 lb ft of torque on tap, the Series III version once again had 150mph in its sights. A revised wheelbase yielded better cabin space which, together with wider tracks front and rear, new anti-dive front suspension and fatter tyres, gave improved road holding. Imbued with a more muscular stance thanks to its flared wheelarches, re-profiled wings and larger grille, it also benefited from vented disc brakes and a restyled interior. The vendor believes this sparkling Coupe languished in lengthy storage before his purchase in 2007 and its history is limited to the log book and MOT of the time. Since then he has lavished over ú13,000 on the Jaguar, mainly to the benefit of its V12 engine and cooling system. He currently considers the 2+2 bodywork, paintwork, Biscuit-coloured leather interior trim, 5.3-litre engine and automatic transmission as all being in 'excellent' order. It has regularly completed the London to Brighton classic run, but his children have now outgrown the rear seats, so it's time to find a new keeper for the E-Type, that currently displays an unwarranted 89,238 miles. 'UEC 413M' is MOT'd to May 5 2017.

Powered by the marque's first all-new engine since 1959, its twin-turbocharged 5998cc W12 was allied to six-speed ZF Tiptronic transmission. With a quoted 552bhp and 479lbft of torque on tap plus Torsen-based permanent four-wheel drive, the 2+2-seater GT was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.8 seconds and 198mph. A deft blend of muscularity and elegance, the two-door coupe's lines were the work of Dirk Van Braekel. Equipped with sophisticated independent suspension and ventilated ABS disc brakes all-round, the Continental GT proved an accomplished transcontinental express. Finished in Cypress Green with Savannah / Spruce leather interior, this example is described as being in "very good" condition with regards to its paintwork, bodywork, engine, interior, electrics and transmission. Registering some 83,500 miles it has been serviced by Bentley eight times and then by Bentley specialists 4 times, with the last carried out on 12 August this year. Well-appointed with walnut trim, the car is offered with Swansea V5C and current MoT to August 2017.

Rolls-Royce 25/30 Saloon with Division

Description: Rolls-Royce 25/30 Saloon with Division - 1935 Car Manufacturer: Rolls-Royce Car Model: 25/30 Saloon with Division Saloon Registration No: MJK 377 Chassis No: GHL20 Colour: Cream Gearbox Type: Manual - Reputedly 1 of just 6 Rolls-Royce 25/30s to be bodied to this design by Windovers - Supplied new to W. Johnson Esq of the Basset confectionary company - Current owner since 1984, Marchal headlamps, drinks cabinet, twin spare wheels This charming long chassis 25/30 is finished in Cream over Brown and trimmed in Brown leather. Its Windovers Saloon body includes a Division and 'MJK 377' is thought to be one of just six Rolls-Royce 25/30s clothed to this design. It was supplied new on October 20, 1936 to W Johnson of the Basset confectionary company. The suitably impressive specification includes Marchal headlamps, twin spare wheels, chrome luggage rack, GB plate and cocktail cabinet. The Rolls has remained within the same ownership since 1984 but is now seeking a fresh chapter in its life courtesy of a new keeper. It comes complete with V5C and a copy of the factory records, as supplied by the RREC. Maintaining its policy of offering one 'Large' and one 'Small' model (the terms being purely relative), Rolls-Royce introduced the 20/25 in 1929 as a successor to the outgoing 20. Though the newcomer was intended to appeal to owner drivers, many examples were in fact sold to customers with chauffeurs. Power came from an enlarged version of the straight-six unit used in the 20. Now of 3699cc, it made for swifter acceleration and a higher top speed - up to 75mph, depending on the chosen body. The four speed manual gearbox featured the manufacturer's traditional righthand change and was equipped with synchromesh on the top two ratios from 1932 onwards. The substantial chassis sported rigid axles front and rear suspended on semi-elliptic leaf springs. The four-wheeled braking was mechanically servo assisted. In 1936, the company opted to increase performance once more, further enlarging the engine to 4257cc to create the so-called 25/30, of which 1201 examples were made before the model was superseded by the Wraith in 1938. Like most Rolls-Royces, the 25/30 starred on the silver screen, most notably in 'The Naked Truth' and 'Death on the Nile'.

Description: Land Rover 88 Series IIA - 1967 Car Manufacturer: Land Rover Car Model: 88 Series IIA Utility Registration No: LVO579E Chassis No: 27107258C Colour: Grey Gearbox Type: Manual - First registered in May 1967 and showing only three former keepers (since DVLA's computerisation) on the V5C - Acquired by the vendor earlier this year after a few years of inactivity and recently treated to a repaint - Described by the vendor as being in "very good" to "excellent" condition in all respects Land-Rover's Series models were extremely popular with people from all over the world, and the IIA is thought to have been the most successful variant, with sales around 1969/70 believed to have reached 60,000 units a year. Quite a feat for a relatively young company with a small and targeted product range. Little is known about the history of this wonderfully coloured example, although that could easily be solved by a new owner with a V888 application to the DVLA. The V5C has recorded only three former keepers (since the DVLA's computerisation) and the current owner acquired the car earlier this year after it had experienced a period of inactivity. Treated to a new coat of paint the vendor describes the vehicle as being in "very good" to "excellent" in all respects.

Description: Leyland Mini Moke Californian - 1984 Car Manufacturer: Leyland Car Model: Mini Moke Californian Pickup Registration No: A31 FUF Chassis No: TW7XKFP3185380378 Colour: Land Rover Grey Gearbox Type: Manual - Believed to be the first RHD Portuguese Moke brought to the UK by Dutton, the importer - Originally pale blue, A31 FUF was reportedly used in a lot of the early publicity by Dutton - Much enjoyed by the current owner, and supplied with a set of original style seats When production of the Australian produced Mini Moke ceased, British Leyland began building the Californian version at one of their plants in Portugal. The Dutton name was very well-known in the 1980's as one of the largest kit-car manufacturers in the world, and in the early 1980's it is understood that they started importing Mokes into England. A31 FUF was first registered in England in May 1984 and is believed to have been the first right hand drive Moke imported by Dutton and used in a lot of their promotional activities and publications. The vendor informs us that it was originally pale blue and is now painted a Land Rover grey, and they describe it as being an older restoration that now has "good" paintwork, "very good" bodywork and engine, and an "excellent" gearbox. It is expected to be supplied with a history file containing a few receipts, magazines in which the car has been featured, a hood frame, hood, and door panels, and also a set of original style seats should the next owner wish to fit them.

A formidable and enormously successful rally weapon, it also made a very capable and comfortable road car. With manners suitable for family outings, nights to the opera, spirited weekend drives, or high-speed laps or a legendary racing circuit, the Delta Integrale was an extraordinary machine that could take all these in its stride (in all its evolutions), and it can still hold its head high today. Reported to have recently had the seats re-trimmed, as well as having many new parts fitted such as tyres, exhaust, spark plugs, and re-furbished shock absorbers. We are not sure if there are any invoices to substantiate these works which are reported to have been carried out during 2016. This Italian registered car will be brought from Italy for the sale and is described by the vendor as being in "very good" condition in all respects.

Description: Vespa 400 Cabriolet - 1958 Car Manufacturer: Vespa Car Model: 400 Cabriolet Cabriolet Registration No: EU-Reg Chassis No: 2677 Colour: Yellow Gearbox Type: Manual - A very rare car apparently produced in France from 1957 to 1961 using a design by the Italian Piaggio company - Factory specification believed to have included a rear mounted air cooled 393cc two-stroke engine - Reported to have been completely rejuvenated in 2015 ad described by the Italian vendor as being in "very good" condition The Vespa 400 was a small car built in Fourchambault, France, in relatively small numbers between 1957 and 1961. It had been designed by the Italian Piaggio company that produced the Vespa scooter, and looked very similar to the Autobianchi Bianchina Trasformabile. The engine was a 393cc rear-mounted two cylinder air cooled two-stroke unit that was mated to a three or four speed gearbox. This brightly hued version was restored in 2015 and will be imported from Italy for the sale. Wearing French registration plates, it is easy to imagine it parked beside a harbour in the South of France with its roll-back roof revealing the yellow and white vinyl interior. It is described by the vendor as being in "very good" condition in all respects, and must represent a very unusual opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts of the Vespa marque and small fun cars to acquire such a rare and characterful car.

Mercedes-Benz 220 SEB Coupe

Description: Mercedes-Benz 220 SEB Coupe - 1964 Car Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz Car Model: 220 SEB Coupe Coupe Registration No: BLR829B Chassis No: 11102120034337 Colour: Silver / Black Gearbox Type: Manual This lovely big Benz has had just four keepers from new, the first of whom retained it for 32 years. Fitted with the rarer four-speed manual floor change gearbox and sunroof, the vendor acquired it in 2015 and believes it had been kept rain-free since being restored and resprayed five years earlier. The Coupe is understood to have started life in Glasgow before spending an extended period in the Channel Islands. Earlier this year the vendor commissioned Classic Restorations of Alyth to carry out any remedial work they felt was required, the bill for which totalled ú4,250. Finished in Black over Silver and trimmed in a very attractive shade of Red leather, 'BLR 829B' is now ready to be enjoyed by a new keeper and is being offered complete with: receipts dating back to 2000 and for the 2010 restoration that included work to the brakes, suspension and exhaust system, powder coated wheels, new tyres and radiator and fresh upholstery, headlining carpet and dash; plus a number of old MOTs and one valid to November 16 next year. Judging by the paperwork, the recorded mileage of 73,000 is almost certainly genuine. A fine example of period Mercedes-Benz engineering. Via the W111 'fintail' series of 1959, Mercedes continued its practice of offering special two-door Coupe or Roadster versions of its Saloon cars, and the 220SEB took this supreme elegance to a whole new level. Based on the flagship S-class W111 'fintail' Saloon, with its signature upright headlights and imposing traditional Mercedes-Benz grille, the Coupe comprised a light and airy pillarless glasshouse over a distinctive two-door body. The 220 Coupe was very well appointed inside, featuring Mercedes textured leather and wood trimmings. The model's 2195cc, SOHC engine employed mechanical fuel injection of the same type as the 'Pagoda' SLs - its 120bhp being sufficient to propel the car at up to 106mph. A total of some 14,173 220SEB Coupes were built between 1961 and 1965 when the run was terminated.

Phebus 2 1/4hp Forecar

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Phebus 2 1/4hp Forecar - 1899 Car Manufacturer: Phebus Car Model: 2 1/4hp Forecar Registration No: BS 8509 Chassis No: 46 Colour: Green / Black Gearbox Type: Manual The marque took its name from Phoebus, the Greek sun God, and its vehicles were manufactured in the Parisian suburb of Suresnes between 1899 and 1903 by Noe Boyer et Cie. The company initially marketed Aster-engine tricycles, one of which was ridden at the impressive speed of 39mph on the Crystal Palace velodrome by Charles Jarrott. F W Wellington of St George's Square, London, marketed the four-wheel Automobilette Phebus when it came to the UK in 1998, which inspired the Automotor Journal of January 1900 to report 'the new Dion-engined Phebus takes Primrose and Haverstock Hills with the greatest of ease'. This charming veteran formed part of the famous Ward Brothers' Collection until it was successfully auctioned in 2009. It is believed to be the only remaining example, and is distinctive for having a fold-open front seat enabling passengers to be carried ahead of the steering column - hence the name. The coachwork is presented in Green and Black livery and trimmed with Black leather - the Phebus motifs on the side panels are a feature of the car. Its equipment includes a multi-twist bulb horn and the engine has been fitted with a contemporary air-cooled cylinder head. The veteran's comfortable ride is attributable to fully-elliptic front suspension and C-springs on the rear. Fresh valves and valve springs have been fitted in recent years and the Phebus has successfully contested the annual London-Brighton veteran car run. Its unexpected return to the market provides an exciting opportunity to purchase a unique London-Brighton contender that combines French 19th century chic with an impressive turn of speed and, of course, an early starting position in Hyde Park.

Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Targa

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Targa - 1985 Car Manufacturer: Porsche Car Model: 911 Carrera 3.2 Targa Targa Registration No: B303MYJ Chassis No: WP0ZZZ91ZFS141143 Colour: Grand Prix White Gearbox Type: Manual Porsche's ubiquitous 911 has come in many guises over the years, though this is probably one of the more individual examples to pass through our hands. It started life as a standard 1985 3.2 Targa, but prior to the vendor's purchase in 2014 it was treated to a G Force 'slant nose' conversion at a cost of c.ú25,000, which was apparently achieved using original OEM parts. The Porsche's wheels have also been upgraded, and in place of the standard Fuchs alloys, it now features rare Oscam Type 806 (Rennsport) ones - 10x15 inch at the rear and 8.5x15 inch on the front. The Targa has comprised part of the vendor's collection of cars and, though it's seen little use in his care, has been treated to a partial restoration. He now classes the bodywork and Grand Prix White paintwork as 'excellent' and the Red leather interior trim, flat-six engine and G50 five-speed manual gearbox as 'very good to excellent'. The indicated mileage of just 41,000 is apparently substantiated by the considerable level of accompanying paperwork. Treated to a recent Targa roof renovation using original Porsche supplied kit, 'B303 MYJ' also comes with an MOT valid to June 6, 2017. The 911 Carrera 3.2 made its debut at the 1983 Frankfurt Motorshow. Visually indebted to the outgoing 911 SC, it was available in Coupe, Targa and Cabriolet guises and wore a revised front valance complete with auxiliary driving lamps and a subtle 'Carrera' script on its engine lid. Estimated to be 80 percent new, the newcomer's 3164cc flat-six engine was credited with 231bhp and 209 lb ft of torque - sufficient output to slingshot the Porsche to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 153mph. The brakes were enlarged, the top two gear ratios slightly raised, and a redesigned timing chain tensioner installed. By now all 911s were built with galvanised bodies, relieving the concern over corrosion.

Renault Clio V6 Sport

Description: Renault Clio V6 Sport - 2002 Car Manufacturer: Renault Car Model: Clio V6 Sport Hatchback Registration No: V6 PBS Chassis No: VF1C61A0625685851 Colour: Met. Silver Gearbox Type: Manual - One former keeper and 42,000 miles from new, book pack, two keys - Seven services to date the most recent of which included a new cambelt and water pump (Feb 2016) - 1 of just 256 UK-supplied Phase 1 cars 'The Clio hasn't really needed the ebbing of time and the production of newer models to emerge as an icon; it was clear from the outset just how special this car was, as a story Peter Dron told makes clear: when the V6 was in development, VW heard whispers that Renault was making a 3-litre Clio. So, not to be outdone, the Germans went flat out to produce a Lupo that would also consume just 3 litres of fuel per 100km . . .' (EVO Magazine, January 2009) Harking back to the similarly configured Renault 5 Turbo homologation specials of the 1980s, the Renault Clio V6 Renault Sport was introduced in 2001. Based on an extensively reworked three-door Clio bodyshell, the transformation from front-engined, front-wheel drive hatchback to mid-engined, rear-wheel drive quasi-coupe was less than straightforward. Built by Tom Walkinshaw Racing, the Phase 1 variant provided thrills aplenty but was not known for its forgiving nature. Powered by a 2946cc V6 (227bhp / 220lbft) allied to six-speed manual transmission, the two-seater could reputedly sprint from 0-60mph in 6.2 seconds and onto 146mph. According to www.V6clio.net a total of 1,513 Phase 1s were made, 256 of which were produced for the UK market and all but 33 of those were, like the sale car, finished in Iceberg Silver. Rated by the vendor as 'very good' (bodywork, paintwork, Blue leather / suede upholstery) or 'excellent' (engine, gearbox, electrical equipment), 'V6 PBS' is further understood to have had just one previous keeper and to have covered just 42,000 miles from new. Treated to a new cambelt and water pump as part of its seventh documented service which was carried out on 12th February 2016 at 41,758 miles, this increasingly collectible Clio V6 is offered for sale with book pack, two keys and MOT certificate valid until May 2017.

Alfa Romeo Giulia Nuova Super 1300

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Alfa Romeo Giulia Nuova Super 1300 - 1978 Car Manufacturer: Alfa Romeo Car Model: Giulia Nuova Super 1300 Saloon Registration No: XUX215S Chassis No: AR0048337 Colour: Black Gearbox Type: Manual The boxy shape of 105 Series Giulia Saloons belied a low drag coefficient and, powered by the company's ubiquitous all-alloy, DOHC, four-cylinder engine of either 1300 or 1600cc, was capable of shaming many sporting two-seaters of the period. It is perhaps no surprise then that these delightful cars are now highly collectable and racing versions are still being campaigned with vigour. The range first saw the light of day in 1962 and was gradually updated until replaced by the Giulietta in 1978. This notably smart lefthand drive Nuova Super 1300 is therefore among the last of the line. It was imported from Italy in 2011 and benefited from a ú14,000 restoration in 2014. The vendor currently considers the bodywork, Tan leather interior and twin-cam engine to be 'excellent', and the Black paintwork and manual transmission 'very good'. 'XUK 215S' comes complete with an MOT into January and a Club Storico Faentino passport.
