1979 Aston Martin V8 Volante

Lot # 2092 (Sale Order: 156 of 204)      

Launched at the October 1978 Birmingham Motor Show, the Fourth Series or Oscar India V8 (Oscar India being AM factory 'shorthand' for October Introduction) boasted a re-profiled 'power bulge' bonnet, subtly integrated rear lip spoiler and GKN alloy wheels. Little changed beneath its aluminium skin, the model utilised the same independent coil-sprung front suspension, De Dion rear axle, four-wheel disc brakes and power assisted rack and pinion steering as its predecessors. Predominantly allied to three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission, the Tadek Marek designed 5340cc DOHC V8 engine was fed via quad Weber carburettors. Thus equipped, Autocar magazine found the Oscar India to be capable of 146mph and 0-60mph in 7.2 seconds. Cementing its Grand Tourer credentials, the model featured a smart burr walnut dashboard / door cappings and could be had in Fixed-Head or Convertible guises. Total carburettor-fed V8 Volante production amounted to just 439 cars (though, the American market accounted for the vast majority). According to its accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, this particular example - chassis 15075 - was completed on 1st May 1979 and dispatched to Reg Vardy Ltd some eight days later. Originally finished in Tourmaline Blue with Light Blue-piped Fawn leather upholstery (the same livery it pleasingly sports today), the Aston Martin's build specification also included a lockable fuel-filler cap, left-hand electric door mirror and two detachable headrests. Purchased by its previous keeper, Alan Webb Esq., from marque specialist Runnymede in 2010, the V8 Volante was subsequently entrusted to the Chiltern Aston Centre for a thorough vehicle inspection following which attention was paid to its boot floor, sills, floorpan, brake system and suspension etc. Keen to enhance his driving pleasure, Mr Webb commissioned Aston Workshop to convert 'OPT 775T' from automatic to six-speed manual transmission. Showing a credible but unwarranted 43,966 miles at the time, the occasional four-seater retains its original engine but now displays some 3,000 miles to the digital odometer which was fitted as part of the Tremec gearbox upgrade. Acquired by the vendor with service and maintenance bills from Aston Martin main dealers and specialists that apparently totalled nearly ú50,000 not to mention over 150 photographs detailing work done, the car has since been treated to a re-spray in its original Tourmaline Blue and had its interior trim smartened etc. Highly presentable and mechanically well sorted, this rare right-hand drive carburettor-fed V8 Volante is offered for sale with BMIHT Certificate, original handbook, brochure, fresh MOT certificate and extensive bills / invoices dating back to the 1980s. It also comes with its original automatic transmission should a new owner wish to reinstate it.

1910 Renault Type BY Roi-des-Belges

Lot # 2094 (Sale Order: 158 of 204)      

DS 7197' was exported to the USA from new in 1910. At some point it then dwelt in Holland before being imported to the UK in 1983 by the late motor dealer Stephen Langton. The vendor acquired the Renault a few months later, so has now been its keeper for 32 years. Retaining as much originality as possible, he restored the Phaeton over a two year period, during which the rear section of the body was replaced. In 1985 it was confirmed as a 1910 build Renault Model BY by the late Anthony Ronald, the then historian for Renault FrÞres - a club for those owning pre-1940 Renault motorcars. The following year it was officially dated by the Veteran Car Club and comes complete with the resulting certificate. The Renault has been the subject of continual maintenance throughout the vendor's tenure, during which time the rear pair of artillery wheels have been refurbished, and new bearings installed in the gearbox and rear axle. A replacement radiator was fitted in 2004, while in 2006 the 4.4-litre engine was treated to a major overhaul during which new valves, cast alloy pistons and crankshaft and big end bearings were installed, the crankshaft journals cleaned up, and the unit rebored. In deference to safety and modern day usage, the Renault now features an electric starter motor and electric lights. The car is very smartly-presented and the vendor informs us that it's 'very fast and reliable and has never let him down'. He considers the engine and electrical equipment to be 'excellent' and the bodywork, Blue- paintwork, Black leather interior trim and four-speed manual transmission to all be in 'very good' condition. He is now looking for a new home for this splendid Edwardian motorcar, which comes complete with replaced parts and a history file full of paperwork and photos.

1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Sport Cabriolet

Lot # 2102 (Sale Order: 166 of 204)      

Estimated to be 80 percent new, the 3.2's flat-six engine was credited with developing some 231bhp and 209lb ft of torque. Allied to a five-speed manual transmission, it proved both rev-happy and flexible, making the model reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and a 153mph top speed. In order to cope with the increased performance, the brakes were enlarged and the top two gear ratios slightly raised. Examples from 1987 onwards had the stronger G50 gearbox in which reverse was located beside the first ratio. An optional 'Sport' pack became available during 1984, and included a deeper front valance, 'tea tray' rear spoiler, stiffer Bilstein dampers and 16-inch Fuchs forged alloy wheels with black centres. By now all 911s were built with galvanised bodies, so rusting was largely a thing of the past. The striking righthand drive Cabriolet now offered is finished in classic Grand Prix White complemented by White-piped Blue leather interior trim and Blue weather equipment. Being a 1989 example equipped from new with the optional Sport package, it benefits from the superior G50 five-speed manual gearbox, Turbo-style rear spoiler, 2 keys, Porsche immobiliser, desirable rear seat option and has had five former keepers, one of whom retained the Porsche for 17 years. The vendor considers all major aspects of the 911 to be either 'excellent' or 'very good' and notes that the Fuchs alloy wheels are 'in excellent condition and shod with very good tyres'. 'F886 JMR' currently indicates a relatively low 49,000 miles and is being offered complete with a substantial history file that includes: a selection of old MOTs, plus one valid to August 18 next year and fitted car cover. With snug-fitting electrically operated hoods, these 3.2 Cabriolets make eminently practical performance cars come rain or shine, and are steadily appreciating in value.

1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn

Lot # 2104 (Sale Order: 168 of 204)      

Unveiled in 1949, the Silver Dawn had the distinction of being the first Rolls-Royce to be offered with a factory-built body, which it shared (along with the chassis) with its MKVI Bentley sibling. The newcomer was initially powered by a 4257cc version of the company's straight-six engine, but this was increased to 4566 during 1951. The unit was mated to either a manual or automatic gearbox - 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 481 Silver Dawns had been manufactured by the time the model was supplanted by the Silver Cloud. This delightful Silver Dawn was delivered new by Rippon Brothers of Huddersfield to a J. Rawson of Stanningley near Leeds on March 19th 1954. These lovely Rolls-Royces do tend to suffer from corrosion, so there is considerable peace of mind to be had from knowing that a comprehensive body restoration was carried out by RS Panels of Nuneaton in 1998 at a cost of ú18,211.33, during which any rot was removed, the sliding roof and radiator grille slats repaired and the whole car resprayed in Shell Grey, one of its two original colours. 'KKU 5' is well known within the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts' Club (RREC), having attended many of the organisation's events. It is now offered complete with RREC chassis records, original owner's manual and service handbook, a Silver Dawn Parts List Volume One, photos and invoice relating to the work carried out by RS Panels, and a large collection of other invoices, old tax discs and MOT certificates. The most recent of the latter was carried out in 2015, despite the car being MOT exempt, and was granted with no advisories. The Rolls' indicated mileage currently stands at an unwarranted but perfectly plausible 93,189.

1950 Ford F-1

Lot # 2105 (Sale Order: 169 of 204)      

And now for something completely different - a customised classic all-American pickup! It was built by a retired professional drag racer in order to relive his days in the hot rod/drag racing scene of the US West Coast. The original flat-head V8 engine has been fully overhauled and enhanced with such period niceties as beehive oil cooler, chrome studs and translucent red plug leads - the unit apparently 'ticks along with a lovely rumble'. 'XBV 790' retains the correct specification crash gearbox, rides on wide rim polished alloy wheels and benefits from new, correct specification flooring, plus replacement brakes, springs, dampers and exhaust system. All the brightwork has also been replaced as required and the cab is currently described as being 'as-new'. Another nice period touch are the Model A rear lights. Smartly presented in Red over Black and trimmed in Beige, this fine lefthand drive Ford is all ready for a new keeper to enjoy.

1946 MG TC

Lot # 2106 (Sale Order: 170 of 204)      

Developed from the original TA Series Midget, introduced in 1936, the TC made its debut immediately after the end of the Second World War, soon becoming MG's best-selling sports car. Exactly 10,000 cars were produced. The TC was a lightly-modified version of the TB with the same engine, transmission and running gear, but with a slightly widened cabin, and minor changes to the rear suspension. Independent tests confirmed a top speed of 75mph, and an easy cruising speed of more than 60mph. All TCs had centre-lock wire spoke wheels, and a big, exposed, slab fuel tank, with a fold-back soft top and removable canvas side screens for weather protection. We are informed by the owner that this early example has had just six owners since 1946. A previous owner commenced its restoration in 1997 but died in 2009, before the work could be finished. The car was then acquired by noted Alvis restorer Roger Gooding who completed the car in 2014. Immediately afterwards it was purchased by the vendor. Described as having "very good" bodywork, paintwork, replacement engine and interior, a recent trip to Northern Spain was enjoyed without any problems. Accompanied by correspondence and invoices dating back to 1987, assorted MoTs and a Swansea v5 document, this smart Midget also benefits from a set of sidescreens and tonneau with matching new hood.

1901 Milwaukee Racer

Lot # 2110 (Sale Order: 174 of 204)      

The Milwaukee Automobile Company of Wisconsin was founded in late 1899 and proceeded to produce a range of steam cars from March 1900 until, well, it ran out of steam in May 1902. While times were good, the concern decided to make a splash at the first Chicago Automobile Show in 1901. So, in addition to two other cars and two commercial vehicles, it displayed a racing car. Such machines were, of course, rare in those early days of the horseless carriage and the Milwaukee they displayed, and which is now being offered for sale, must surely be one of the earliest surviving machines specifically designed and built for competition. It was manufactured for a Dr J.G. Lovell of Chicago and designed by the company's agent in that city, Frank P. Illsley. At some later stage, possibly by the factory before it closed, the Milwaukee was extensively modified, and the boiler housed up front under a bonnet. Evidently the racer was in this form when restored in 1954 by a Mr Ray Salentine of Waukesha, Wisconsin, and the current boiler and water tank are thought to date from that period. It is believed this fascinating item of Americana dwelt in Beloit near Chicago in the 1960s/1970s and was next heard of at the Carl Benz Automuseum in Ladenburg, Germany in 2001. The vendor acquired the Milwaukee in the Spring of 2005 and, following extensive research, it has been painstakingly restored to original 1901 specification. Despite the evident intentions for it to compete in period, little related history has been uncovered, except for the possibility of a half-mile race at Joliet, Illinois in October 1901. Being pre-1905 it is eligible for the London to Brighton run and has indeed participated in the event. Superbly presented in Black and Green, this fascinating veteran comes complete with boiler certificate valid into 2017 and an entry into this year's London to Brighton Veteran Car Run.
