Description: 1966 MERCEDES BENZ 230 S This elegant four door, five seater sedan is known as the "Fintail" due to its restrained incorporation of this 1960s design element. This is an excellent example, with the 2.3 litre in-line six cylinder motor delivering long-legged power through a manual floor shift gearbox which is a very rare original German factory option. Paintwork and chrome is all original, and a full service history is available. Registered and licensed. ILLUSTRATED

Description: circa 1971 ALFA ROMEO GT JUNIOR Always a popular choice where practical sports motoring on a reasonable budget is a prime concern. The "Junior" is a timeless Bertone design that spans a number of incarnations of one of Alfa's most enduring coupe body styles. This example, evidenced as post 1971 by the flush front bonnet edge, was originally powered by a 1600 cc engine coupled to a 5 speed synchromesh gearbox. It was already sprightly in performance terms, with a top speed of 113mph claimed. However, it has been upgraded by the installation of a 2 litre motor and further enhanced with aftermarket alloy wheels. Registered and licensed. ILLUSTRATED

Description: 1980 HONDA CB 750F When the mighty CB750 Four range started its production run in 1969, no-one could have imagined the level of success it was to achieve in racing, commuting and touring. Its powerful single overhead cam inline four-cylinder engine was smooth and capable of delivering 200km/h yet was tractable and well-mannered around town. This example on offer is from the last couple of years of production and features front and rear hydraulic disc brakes and a four-into-one exhaust system. In superb condition. Registered and licensed. ILLUSTRATED

Description: circa 1916 BUICK 4 DOOR PHAETON A charming and appealing buttercup yellow example of this highly collectable and reliable four door, four seat open tourer. The vehicle is in running condition, with relatively minor attentions required to its mechanical peripherals to restore the original specification. There is no major obstacle to the enjoyment of its character and the flexibility delivered by the straight six motor and a three speed manual gearbox. Engine number 574315. Chassis number 575069. Registered and licensed. ILLUSTRATED

Description: 1973 MGB GT V8 The V8 version of the MGB GT was introduced in 1973, employing the substantial benefits of the 3.5 litre Rover engine that was more powerful and lighter than its 1798cc 4 cylinder predecessor. This is very much a vehicle in the idiom of a town and country car with a sporting heritage. It has a four speed manual transmission which allows for spirited sporting driving as well as round-town ease of use. This particular example is an early car and very rare, being one of the most original factory products around. It boasts its original paintwork, its original interior, and its original mechanicals. Registered and licensed. ILLUSTRATED
