1952 Jowett Bradford Utility De Luxe

Lot # 101 (Sale Order: 2 of 101)      

  • Clearly restored although no paperwork, unfortunately

  • UK, right-hand drive, 3-speed manual

  • 1007cc side-valve, flat-twin (19bhp). 0-50mph in 47.4 seconds

  • In a typical period shade of Mustard. Retrimmed Red Leatherette seating

  • Showing 15,708 miles. Non-Runner

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

The Jowett Bradford was a British light van produced from 1946 to 1953 by Jowett Cars Ltd of Idle, near Bradford and was one of the most popular light commercial vehicles of the post-war period. It was also offered as an estate car, the Utility (in effect, little more than the van with side windows and rear seats) from 1947 to 1953. Based on the pre-war Jowett Eight, the 10cwt van was the first Jowett to be re-introduced after the Second World War and, in spite of being very basic, it appealed to the post-war market because of its economy, strength and reliability and the simple fact that they were available. The chassis featured half-elliptic leaf springs front and rear supporting beam axles and was quite light which was fortunate as it was powered by a 1007cc front-mounted, side valve flat-twin engine delivering a heady 19bhp driving the rear wheels through a three-speed, non-synchromesh gearbox. The 10in drum brakes were operated mechanically using a Girling system.

In 1950, the engine was updated to give 25bhp, improving the top speed to 53mph and synchromesh was fitted to the top ratio. A De-Luxe specification was also available which included trafficators, dual windscreen wipers, running boards, a rear bumper and some chromium plating, adding £38 to the total cost. It remained in production until 1953 and during the, relatively short, seven-year production run, 38,241 examples were made. Sadly, after years of lying empty, the Jowett Bradford works was demolished in 1983.

Dating from 1952, this Bradford Utility appears to be a De Luxe with chrome radiator, headlights, front bumper, twin wipers and trafficators although the side-steps and rear bumper are not present. It's finished in an attractive shade of Mustard and has clearly been restored at some point but there is no paperwork with the car. The odometer reads 15,708 miles. Currently a non-runner but rolls quite freely and it doesn't look as though it would take much to turn it into a decent 'show' car.

1982 Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit

Lot # 102 (Sale Order: 3 of 101)      

  • Presenting rather well in Peacock Blue with a classic Rolls-Royce cream interior

  • 30,544 miles indicated which could well be accurate, however, we have no paperwork

  • We understand that it does drive but needs a battery

  • This is a lovely straight old Spirit that looks to have been cared for on offer at No Reserve

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

There were no real surprises in Autumn 1980 when Rolls-Royce unveiled their new Silver Spirit and its long wheelbase counterpart, the Silver Spur, alongside Bentley's sporting Mulsanne range. The well-proven 6,750cc V8 engine previously used in the Silver Shadow was retained and now had slightly more power (228bhp and a mighty 330lb/ft) but the styling was much more modern and angular, being longer, wider and lower and with 30 per cent more glass area. Road-holding was reported to be "the best yet from Rolls-Royce" thanks to significant improvements to the self-levelling rear suspension and the new car could waft up to 60mph in just 10 seconds with a top speed of 125mph.

Interior appointments were as luxurious as ever, using only the finest hides and veneers, the most noticeable change being the adoption of separate rear seats. "A gloriously individual possession that signifies impeccable excellence and taste, an extravagant celebration of detail over function, a monument in the driveway and an occasion to drive," was how Autocar summed it up.

Dating from 1982, this Silver Spirit presents really well, and with a little bit of detailing could be rather special. 30,544 miles indicated which, judging by its condition, could well be correct but there is no paperwork to corroborate. It does drive and we believe just needs a battery. Incredibly it's on offer at No Reserve.

1959 Borgward Isabella Coupe

Lot # 104 (Sale Order: 5 of 101)      

  • Dating from 1959, right-hand drive and first UK registered on 25/05/1962

  • Two-year glass-out, engine-out, floor out restoration 1994/1995

  • Complete retrim (£1,800) in October 1997. Full engine rebuild (£639) in 1998

  • Still looks good in Cream with a super red leather interior, fabulous dashboard and original radio

  • A lovely example of a rare car and, when further detailed, would make a good show car

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

Carl Borgward was a hands-on industrialist, who owned, and micro-managed Hansa, Goliath, Lloyd and Borgward brands in Germany. By the 1950s, they were running fifth in the German sales league, although there were clouds on the horizon, the company becoming insolvent in 1961 having put too much effort into the American market which was having troubles of its own. In truth, Borgward’s strategy of constantly introducing new models was causing reliability issues, inefficient tooling usage and market confusion, but that didn’t stop the concern making fine cars, which in the case of the Borgward Isabella, competed at the upper end of the market.

Their bread and butter models were the Isabella two-door saloon and estate models, but to add some glamour, Borgward introduced the elegant coupé as on offer today. With overtones of Mercedes 190SL in the styling and BMW-influenced engines, they offered strong 80+mph performance from their modest 75bhp 1,493cc engines.

There is little early history of this 1959 German coupé apart from some tax discs and MOTs from the early eighties, however, we know that it was first registered in the UK in May 1962. It was acquired in August 1993 by Tony Hunt of Tipton who had been looking for one for some months. There is a small article in Practical Classics Magazine (Jan 1996) telling the story of his two-year glass-out, engine-out, floor out restoration of 772 ELC and a number of photographs including some taken presumably at the end with the car looking very smart on a show stand. There is an MOT on file dated May 1996 at a mileage (km?) of 52,640.

772 ELC was subsequently purchased on 15/02/1997 by David Palmer from Oxford who owned it until 29/11/2009 and judging by the amount of invoices in the file that relate to immediately after his purchase, he was not too impressed with the restoration. Too much work to list here but the important bits are a complete retrim by Minns of Oxford in October 1997 (£1,800) and an engine rebuild (rebore, new pistons, crank regrind, new mains, big ends, small ends) £639 in June 1998. The Isabella has been part of a collection since 2014 but, pleasingly, has remained in decent condition. As well as all the invoices, MOTs photographs etc. it's supplied with the original 'Operating Instructions' in English.

This is a lovely example of a rare car and, when further detailed, would make a good show car.

1971 Rolls-Royce Corniche

Lot # 105 (Sale Order: 6 of 101)      

  • The Burgundy coachwork appears straight with a good depth of finish

  • Interior slightly scruffy. Ox Blood leather well-patinated and could do with a feed

  • 77,632 miles indicated however there is no paperwork with the car

  • Turns over and the fuel pump is working. Probably just needs a new battery and fresh fuel

  • Great basis for a refresh or just use as is

  • Illustrated registration number NAM 36 does not form part of the sale

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

Launched in 1966 as a two-door version of the Silver Shadow, the coachbuilt Mulliner Park Ward Coupe was a superior car to the saloon on which it was based. With fabulously elegant coachwork designed by Bill Allen, each and every one was handbuilt by MPW in a necessarily lengthy process that took all of 20 weeks and resulted in a price some 50% higher than the standard Silver Shadow.

Only the very finest materials were used with different seats and dash to the Shadow, engine power went up by 10% and tweaks to the suspension and steering geometry gave an even better ride. Demand for these magnificent cars was so great that the waiting list was measured in years, not months, a state of affairs that resulted in them being given their own model name, Corniche, in March 1971.

The Corniche was progressively developed over time, gaining features like split-level air conditioning, rack-and-pinion steering, Bosch fuel-injection and self-levelling rear suspension. Reassuringly exclusive, only 1,108 Coupes were made before production ceased at the end of 1981, though a convertible version continued as the flagship model in the Rolls-Royce range until 1996.

Finished in Burgundy, this example appears straight with a good depth of finish. Attractive Corniche interior is slightly scruffy and the Ox Blood leather is well-patinated and could do with a leather feed. 77,632 miles are indicated however there is no paperwork with the car so this cannot be corroborated. It's believed to run and turns over freely but will need a battery and fresh fuel. Great basis for a refresh or just use as is.

1958 Borgward Isabella TS Saloon

Lot # 106 (Sale Order: 7 of 101)      

  • A good looking, two-door saloon attractively finished in medium grey over light grey

  • Appears to be an original right-hand drive car. MPH speedo (91,860) MOTs up to 2008

  • Very smart, nicely appointed interior in red, presumably retrimmed.

  • Cream painted and Bakelite dashboard in good order. Original Borgward Radio

  • Fitted with the more powerful TS engine (1493cc, Twin Solex, 75bhp)

  • Damaged steering rack-would straighten. Currently a non-runner

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

Borgward’s new Isabella range was released in 1954 as a replacement for the Hansa, employing monocoque construction and sold in a number of different guises, including a two-door saloon, coupe, cabriolet and estate (Combi). With elegant Trans-Atlantic styling and plenty of chrome, the Isabella was a handsome alternative to Opel and Ford, neatly bridging the gap to more expensive offerings from Mercedes-Benz. Under the bonnet, Borgward’s compact four-cylinder engine was mated to a four-speed, all-synchromesh gearbox via a hydraulic clutch, using a column-change lever typical for cars of the period. The standard engine’s output was 60 horsepower but a more powerful 75 horsepower unit (known as the TS and using two Solex twin-choke carburettors) was used in the cabriolet and later found its way into the saloon. With independent suspension using a swing axle at the rear, the Isabella handled well and proved a willing performer, with excellent road manners.

The Isabella’s bespoke cabin was nicely appointed, with plenty of space for four adults to travel in comfort, the padded dashboard and large steering wheel both typically Germanic features. The Isabella remained in production until 1962, but Borgward was sadly in receivership and no replacement was forthcoming. In total some 202,862 Isabellas of all types were made over an eight-year period, making it commercially successful although few survivors remain on the road today. With a strong following around the world and plenty of support from the owner's club in the UK, the Isabella is an interesting alternative to other makes of the era.

1959 Borgward Isabella Combi

Lot # 109 (Sale Order: 10 of 101)      

  • 38,652 miles from new, lovely original condition, a real rarity anywhere

  • Right-hand drive, manual gearbox, UK car and one family-owned for most of its life

  • Smart original interior in Red and White. Classic period dashboard. Grundig push-button radio

  • Fitted with a Weber downdraught twin-choke carb and adapter plate

  • Currently a non-runner. May not take much. Difficult to find another one like it

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

German engineer/designer Carl Borgward progressed from general engineering to the manufacture of three-wheeled trucks under the Blitzkarren and Goliath names in the mid-1920s. Hansa-Lloyd was taken over by the Borgward group in 1931, but it was not until 1939 that the Borgward name first appeared on a motor car.

The company resumed production after WW2 with the Lloyd LP300, a small saloon built initially with timber/fabric bodywork, and then in 1952 Borgward introduced the Hansa 1800. Germany’s first all-new design of the post-war era, the Hansa boasted a backbone chassis, independent suspension all round and an all-synchromesh gearbox. The best-selling Isabella arrived in 1954. Badged as the ‘Hansa 1500’ until 1957, the Isabella (its factory code name) boasting a modern, unitary construction body/chassis and eye-catching American-influenced styling.

It was just what the German public had been waiting for and went on to become the most successful Borgward ever. More powerful (75bhp) Cabriolet and Coupé versions joined the range and were excellent performers, with a 95mph maximum speed and exemplary road manners. Production ceased, in the wake of Borgward’s controversial bankruptcy, in 1962.

1983 Polski Fiat 126p

Lot # 110 (Sale Order: 11 of 101)      

  • FSM-Fiat built in Poland. Left-hand-drive and first registered on 07/07/1983

  • Finished in a light Satsuma Orange with a smart Tan/Biscuit vinyl interior

  • The original owner, a retired Polish Army officer covered 27,000 miles in 25 years

  • Indicated mileage is 31,472 supported by ownership blogs and MOTs

  • V5c, owner's handbook and an interesting history file

  • Currently a non-runner but probably hasn't been started in a number of years

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

The Fiat 126 (Type 126) is a four-passenger, rear-engined city car, introduced by Fiat in October 1972 at the Turin Auto Show as a replacement for the Fiat 500. It used much of the same mechanical underpinnings and layout as its Fiat 500 rear-engined predecessor with which it shared its wheelbase but featured an all-new bodyshell resembling a scaled-down Fiat 127. Engine capacity was increased from 594cc to 652cc at the end of 1977 when the cylinder bore was increased from 73.5 to 77 mm. Claimed power output was unchanged at 23bhp. The Fiat Polski 126p was produced in Poland from 1973 until 2000 and was identical to the original version when first launched except for a higher chassis, a modified grille on the rear and front indicators. Over the 28 years of production, the vast majority of these little cars hailed from Poland.

This example is left-hand drive and was built by FSM-Fiat in Poland in June 1983 finished in Orange with a Tan/Biscuit vinyl interior, undersealed from new and equipped with FSM mud flaps, rubber mats, a variable speed wiper and a radio. It was first registered on 7/07/1983 to a retiring army officer to be used occasionally during his retirement. There is quite a lot of history with the car and we understand that it was fitted from new with a 600 (594cc) Italian engine as the first owner was high-ranking within the Communist Party and was offered a better deal (the 600 had been replaced by the 650cc at that stage so who knows?). We believe that the little Fiat covered just 27,000 miles before being imported to the UK in 2008.

From the file, we learn that during its first UK owner's tenure he removed the engine and fitted a new clutch, electronic ignition, fuel filter, front spindles, hub carriers, shock absorbers, brakes and rear wheel cylinders. New lights were fitted and he added a Fuel Cat to the tank (details in file) and the car now runs on unleaded fuel. The Blaupunkt DAB Radio/CD player is a more recent addition.

The indicated mileage is 31,472 which is almost certainly correct given the history file/old MOTs etc. It's accompanied by its V5c, owner's handbook, the history file and has a fire-extinguisher under the bonnet. It's currently a non-runner but that's probably a result of sitting in a collection for 6 years. With some interesting provenance, in this condition and at No Reserve this little Fiat seems a cracking proposition.

1948 Peugeot 202 Canadienne Camionette Boisée

Lot # 111 (Sale Order: 12 of 101)      

  • Powered by a four-cylinder 1,133cc OHV engine coupled to a three-speed synchromesh gearbox

  • Between 1947 and 1949, the manufacturer produced 3,015 timber bodied conversions

  • Running and driving up until seven years ago. Now a non-runner

  • Around 88,000km and it's accompanied by its French Carte Grise

  • Could be in demand in the film/TV industry

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly 'Sold as Seen'.

Formerly producers of tools, coffee mills, umbrella spikes and corsetry, Peugeot commenced its long-standing connection with transport in 1885 when it added cycle manufacture to its portfolio. The second oldest motor manufacturer in the world, the company commenced car production in 1889 with a steam-powered tri-car but soon abandoned steam in favour of the internal combustion engine, building a succession of ever-larger automobiles before introducing the first of its famous Bébé light cars in 1900.New for 1939, the Peugeot 202 was powered by a four-cylinder 1,133cc overhead-valve engine coupled to a three-speed synchromesh gearbox with worm drive rear axle. The suspension was independent at the front and the 202 followed the lines of the larger 402, its streamlined styling reflecting the late-1930s preoccupation with passenger-car aerodynamics. Between 1947 and 1949, the manufacturer produced 3,015 timber bodied "Hatch" (hatchback) conversions: this model cost 55% more than the Berline (saloon) and anticipated future Peugeot policy by using a slightly longer chassis than that used on other 202 versions. The extensive use of timber took the company back to a technology that it had abandoned in 1931 when production of the Type 190 ended, and according to the manufacturer was above all a response to the shortage of sheet steel in post-war France.A very rare survivor of an already rare model, the Peugeot 202 offered here is an example of the Canadienne 'woodie' estate car variant. Attractively finished in maroon with trademark wooden doors and a beige cloth interior it was running and driving up until a few years ago. Currently, a non-runner but looks to have potential and would be regularly employed in the film/ television industry. We understand it has covered around 88,000km and it's accompanied by its French Carte Grise.

1967 Citroen Ami 6

Lot # 112 (Sale Order: 13 of 101)      

  • Left-hand drive, manual gearbox, French home-market car

  • Not UK-registered. 78,504km indicated. With its French CD'i

  • 602cc air-cooled twin and 4-speed box

  • Finished in very flat Dove Grey paintwork. May polish up a bit

  • Interior very tired. Non-runner

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

Manufactured by Citroën between 1961 and 1978, the Ami 6 was a supermini and for several years was the best-selling car in the French home market. When the company eventually decided to replace it, a total of 1,840,396 units had been sold globally. It was often called the Citroën 3CV (Three Horses), as the engine size of 602cc was a little bit larger than the upper limit of the 2CV taxation class, and was offered as either a four-door saloon, four-door estate, or a two-door van.

The early models were thrust forward by a 602cc air-cooled twin, not generating too much 'G-force' which was probably just as well given that the front seats easily unclipped and could be used as picnic chairs. The Ami 6, along with the Ford Taurus, were the first vehicles fitted with rectangular headlights, an innovative design that went against the view that all headlights had to be circular. Despite having dramatic modern styling, the initial sales were as slow as the car (0-50mph in just over half a minute) as it was judged to be too expensive, however, things quickly picked up and it was ultimately much loved.

A major revision to the Standard Vanguard range occurred at the 1958 Motor Show in London, when the Phase 3 was visibly restyled in the, then-popular, "Italian" style. The redesign had been carried out by Michelotti (who styled the Triumph Herald) in conjunction with the Italian coachbuilder Vignale by which name the new model henceforth was called. Mechanically the Vignale Vanguard remained much as before, but externally featured a revised brighter range of 2 tone paint finishes,( separated by a thin chrome side strip), full-width chrome & polished aluminium radiator grille, revised rear lamps and stylish wheel trims. Another major revision was a revised roof pressing with larger front and rear window apertures giving a more modern appearance. Additionally, the Vignale was also offered with the 4-speed floor change as an option.

1950 Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible

Lot # 114 (Sale Order: 15 of 101)      

  • This gorgeous convertible has clearly been well restored at some point

  • UK, right-hand drive, manual column change, 29,965 miles indicated

  • Finished in Seafoam Green with US-influenced styling cues including five chrome strips running down the bonnet, a built-in centre spot lamp, a "Flying A" mascot on each front wing and rear-wheel spats

  • Nicely refurbished tan interior and green carpets. All very attractive

  • Tidy engine bay. Has obviously been well-cared for although currently a non-runner

  • Potentially an excellent show car. No history file or paperwork

NB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and is strictly sold as seen.

Launched in 1949, the wonderful A90 Atlantic was by far the most flamboyant model in the otherwise staid Austin range. Looking like no car before or since, it ultimately proved a brave gamble that did not pay off.

The retro-futuristic styling (art deco with a rocket age twist) was penned by Ricardo ‘Dick’ Burzi, Austin’s chief stylist who had been poached from Lancia after being forced to flee Italy when he insulted Mussolini (not a good idea in the 1930s!). A riot of chrome, curves and quirkiness, the Atlantic was aimed squarely at the American market and was instantly identifiable by its Cyclops-style third headlamp.

Available as a Sports Coupe or a Convertible, it featured almost unheard of luxuries such as powered windows and, in convertible form, a hydraulically operated hood. A range of innovative ‘Jewelescent’ metallic colours was also offered in shades such as ‘Seafoam Green’ and ‘Desert Gold’.

Powered by the same torquey 2.6-litre four-cylinder engine that later found fame in the Austin-Healey 100/4, it had a four-speed column-change gearbox and could cruise all day at 80mph with another 12mph on tap when needed. To prove its sporting credentials, a convertible A90 broke 63 'stock car' records at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in April 1949, pounding round the track non-stop for seven days and averaging over 70mph including halts for fuel.

Sadly for the A90 though, its launch was totally overshadowed by the even more sensational Jaguar XK120 and fast though it was, its Steady-Freddy four-cylinder engine did not have the appeal of a US V8 or the Jaguar 6-cylinder. Despite Austin’s best marketing efforts, only 350 were sold in America and just 7,981 were made in total before production ground to a halt in 1952. With only a handful still surviving, these glamorous machines rarely come to market and are increasingly sought after today.

Finished in Seafoam Green, his gorgeous convertible has clearly been well restored at some point. It displays all the US-influenced styling cues including five chrome strips running down the bonnet, a built-in centre spot lamp, a "Flying A" mascot on each front wing and rear-wheel spats and has a nicely refurbished Tan interior and green carpets. All very attractive.

It's UK, right-hand drive, manual column change, with 29,965 miles indicated and has obviously been well-cared for although currently a non-runner.

  • Very tired dark red interior. Pitted chrome

  • UK-supplied in 1952. XMX 752. 5,268 miles indicated. Original Service Manual

  • 2660cc straight-four that later powered the Healey 100/4. 4-speed column change

The interior appears original but is a little 'lived in' and would need a refresh although the dashboard seems intact. It's supplied with its original Service Manual and is currently a non-runner.

1962 Jaguar D-Type 'Short Nose' Recreation

Lot # 116 (Sale Order: 17 of 101)      

  • A tool-room copy D-Type Shortnose – a collaboration in 2005 between Jerry Booen (ex-Lotus design engineer/D-Type luminary and David Duffy)

  • Two years in construction utilising, whenever possible, either original or correct period parts

  • Fitted with a period-correct, 3.4-litre, dry-sump unit running triple 45DCO3 Webers and a genuine D-Type, 4-speed all synchro gearbox

  • Aluminium hand-formed bodywork from specially made bucks. Steel frame monocoque/aluminium tub. Correct instrumentation and seating. Bolted-in Roll Hoop (for straightforward removal)

  • Supplied with some old FIA papers, build details and its history file

  • Offered at a fraction of what it would cost to replicate, especially considering the number of priceless and virtually unobtainable original parts used in the build

The triple, Le Mans-winning Jaguar D-Type will need little introduction. Following on from the C-Type's victories in 1951 and 1953, the new D-Type, with its state-of-the-art chassis encompassing a central monocoque section, improved rear suspension and a more powerful XK engine, handsomely won the Vingt Quatre Heures du Mans in 1955, 1956 and 1957. Among the most desirable of collectors' cars worldwide, today even the 'customer' cars, let alone the works cars, will cost millions if you can even find one. Therefore, the opportunity to acquire a genuine sixties Jaguar two-seater that has been fully restored, re-engineered and re-clothed in effectively a 'tool-room' copy of D-Type by quality craftsmen, requires serious consideration.

This particular, 'Short Nose' recreation, however, is no ordinary replica. In April 2005, two knowledgeable and highly skilled enthusiasts came together to build an exact copy of a Production D-Type. Jerry Booen is an ex-Lotus design engineer and in more recent times heads up the specialist team at ‘D-Type Devs’, whilst his colleague at the time was David Duffy, who had been a competitor for many years and during the period when this car was being built, owned and raced ‘XKD 544’. Jerry had amassed a virtually complete set of drawings for the car and over time, had collected a range of incredibly rare parts using a useful contact in New Zealand.

A document in the accompanying history file details the impressive specification of the build which we list here:

  • Engine: 3.4-litres, triple Weber 45DCO3 Carburettors, dry sump

  • Transmission: Genuine D-Type 4-speed, all-synchro box, live rear axle

  • Bodywork: Aluminium panels hand-formed on specially made bucks

  • Monocoque: Steel frame in an aluminium tub

  • Suspension: Wishbone front, trailing arms rear at the rear with torsion bars

  • Brakes: Plessey pump powered system with 6-pot/4-pot discs

  • Roll Hoop: Bolted in to make removal straightforward

  • Interior: ‘Correct’ instrumentation and seating

  • Wheels: Original Dunlop alloys, 6.00/6.50 on 5-inch rims

The result of all of this is a highly impressive, both technically and cosmetically, ‘tool room copy’ of the iconic D-type. Where possible, either original or period-correct parts were rebuilt and used, including the engine, gearbox, rear axle, wheels and carburettors. As this was between 2005-2007, Jerry and David did manage to find some original parts, a task getting more difficult with the passing years. Where period parts were not available, remanufactured D-Type spares including the front suspension were bought from historic racing specialists. In cases where parts needed to be made from scratch, original drawings were used as was the case for the chassis frame, brakes, monocoque and bodywork.

After completion, FIA papers were granted and the identity of a 1962 Jaguar E-Type was used for the road registration (Chassis 860552). The accompanying history file includes details of all this as well as the old FIA papers. Naturally, it's finished in British Racing Green with the correct Apple Green interior, both seats are fitted with Willans full harnesses, and the car sits on original Dunlop alloys wearing a set of period Cinturatos.

After the obligatory shakedown and road tests, the car was passed onto a well-known collector who owned it for the following 7-8 years. In more recent times this special car h

1971 Porsche 911 2.7-Litre RS recreation

Lot # 117 (Sale Order: 18 of 101)      

You can now book a one to one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location. Please contact the member of staff associated with this lot to secure your appointment.

The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to strict COVID-19 guidelines and full instructions will be given when making your appointment.


  • Long-term restoration/recreation using an original Australian 2.2-litre 911'E' dating from 1971
  • Work carried out by Porsche specialists Autohaus Hamilton in New South Wales
  • Powered by an original 2.7-litre Carrera ('74) engine with a 915 gearbox. Many original RS body panels
  • Very detailed invoices from Autohaus from December 2003 to February 2013
  • The car was shipped to the UK during October 2013 and UK-registered as BAD 1K
  • The interior is predominantly original RS but was refreshed by Porsche Tonbridge in January 2015
  • Superbly presented in Viper Green with the correct 1973 2.7 RS graphics and black interior
  • It's very rare for a recreation of the legendary 2.7 RS to be based on a contemporary car that has significant value itself

Any inspection of this superbly prepared car and its paperwork would be welcome NB. the cherished registration illustrated 27 RST does not form part of the sale The 1973 Porsche 911 2.7 RS is considered by all knowledgeable Porsche enthusiasts to be the single best 911 of all time. This is high praise when you consider the large number of 911 models that have been built over the 50+ years since the model's introduction. The Carrera RS (Renn Sport) is still, to this day, the benchmark 911, the beautiful lines only being matched by the sheer delight of driving it, with its positive steering, exhilarating sound and linear performance. Built before the American "ugly bumper" era and the oil/fuel crisis, the RS had a purity of purpose that was not compromised by outside factors. For this reason, the Porsche RS Replica market has grown enormously and demand is far outstripping the supply of quality machines. The majority of RS recreations are based on later 911s, however, the immaculate evocation here is based on an original 1971, 'D'Series 2.2-litre 911E, a rare and valuable car in its own right.

Dating from 1971, this Porsche 911E was originally left-hand drive and belonged to Crispin Dawes who lived in Balmoral Ridge in Queensland, Australia. It was raced locally during the 90s and was involved in a light rear-end accident in 1996. A few months later he decided that rather than repair the car he would convert it to right-hand drive and create the ultimate homage to the legendary 2.7 RS.

This work was entrusted to Autohaus Hamilton of New South Wales, well-established Porsche specialists and they were to be involved with the car right through until 2013 when it was shipped to the UK. In total there are 30 pages of detailed invoices from Autohaus amounting to almost 95,000 Australian dollars and anyone considering the purchase of this lovely RS needs to spend some time examining these as, in addition to the 2.7-litre engine, 915 gearbox, body restoration and major parts, every nut, grommet and washer that went into this car's preparation is listed. The first invoice ($21,100) is dated 19-12-2003 and runs to 5 pages and includes the replacement 2.7-litre RS engine, 915 gearbox and clutch. Over the next 8 years, the work appears to be spaced out, but reading through, it's obvious that correctly replicating a '73 RS was the priority. The odometer readings increased between invoices so we assume the car was being used regularly. In June 2012 it was fully stripped again and was sent to the "panel shop" for an engine out, glass out respray in the correct shade of Viper Green.

In October 2013, the Porsche was purchased by a well-known enthusiast in Norfolk to add to his collection and shipped in a container later that month. There is correspondence with HMRC in the file confirming the import and that all duties and taxes have been paid. The car was UK-registered in December 2013 as BAD 1K.

Although very happy with his new Porsche, our collector eventually decided that the interior, the majority of which was original RS was not up to the standard of the rest of the car and asked the Porsche Centre Tonbridge to refresh the car's interior, retaining all the carefully sourced RS parts and sort out one or

1977 ('78 M/Y) Porsche 911SC 3.0-Litre Targa

Lot # 118 (Sale Order: 19 of 101)      

  • Absolutely sparkling, 3-litre Targa from the first year of Super Carrera production

  • Finished in Petrol Blue Metallic with a black leatherette/black and white ‘pin-stripe’ velour interior

  • Five-speed manual box, ATS alloys, Leather Wheel, Centre Console and Electric Windows

  • Comprehensive history from new with Autofarm, Francis Tuthill, and Porsche Centre Brooklands

  • Current mileage is 23,980. Major Porsche Service with fresh fluids on 27/01/2020 at 23,979 miles (one mile ago)

  • Detailed Ownership History, every MOT, Porsche C of A, fully stamped Service Records in the original pouch, an original 1978 Sales Brochure, the current V5c and an MOT valid until 21/08/2020

  • In simply remarkable condition, totally unmolested and one of the best original cars we have ever seen

In 1978, Porsche introduced their latest development of the 911, christened the '911 SC', with the SC standing for Super Carrera. Powered by a 3.0-litre, six-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a five-speed, 915 transmission, power output initially was 180bhp, subsequently 188bhp and finally, in 1981, it was increased to a heady 204bhp. 1979 was the year that Porsche had envisioned that their new 928 would replace the 911 (we are still waiting for that to happen), however, 911 sales remained so strong that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into their core model.

According to its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this stunning Targa was built in September 1977 for the 1978 Model Year and was finished in Petrol Blue Metallic (only available ‘78-80) with a Black Leatherette interior enhanced by black and white ‘pin-stripe’ velours. It’s fitted with a five-speed manual gearbox, the standard ATS alloys, which look particularly good on the Targa, and optioned from new with Impact Absorbers, Headlamp Washers, Leather Steering Wheel, Coloured Windows, a Centre Console and Electric Windows.

Finding a 1970s Porsche with a comprehensive history is fairly rare and, apart from an intriguing nine years, this lovely original car has just that. Initially ordered from AFN Guildford by Peter Cresswell, senior partner in the law firm, Bradstock Plunkett, the Porsche was first registered as WLY 185S on 25/11/1977. It had covered just over 3,000 miles when it was sadly stolen from Chelsea whilst the Cresswell family were abroad on holiday. No trace was subsequently found and the insurance company naturally replaced it with a similar model. Some nine years later, shortly after this second car was replaced with his third new Porsche, Peter Cresswell received an unexpected phone call from Worthing Police telling him that ‘his’ Porsche had been left blocking someone’s drive and when it was reported, it popped up as ‘stolen’. It had covered less than 1,000 miles in the previous nine years and remained in very good condition. It still bore the original registration suggesting that it hadn’t been stolen to sell on to the Continent or to have its identity changed and we can only conclude that whoever stole it loved it so much that they simply had to have it. It was presumably kept in a lock-up and brought out on high-days and holidays to be driven around on its original plates. Brave. It's important to note that at no point have HPI ever listed the car as 'Stolen and Recovered' and pleasingly, the car does not seem to have been recorded anywhere in this connection. Anyway, in mid-March 1987, having negotiated a figure of £11,000 with Royal Insurance, WLY 185S formally became the property of Peter Cresswell, as it was to remain until 2005.

The car was used lightly over the next few years and having covered only a few thousand miles required little in the way of maintenance apart from a new heat exchanger and full service in May 1997 at 8,589 miles, however, in May 1999 the car was sent to Autofarm at 9,076 miles for a general assessment. Several head studs were found to be broken and one thing lead to another resulting in Autofarm rebuilding the complete top end with replacements barrels and heads, new pistons and rings, and associated components. From the look of the invoices on file, Autofarm carried out further mechanical attention and the invoices (all on file) from the May-September period amount to around £7,500.

1994 Aston Martin Virage 'Widebody' Volante (6.3-Litre)

Lot # 119 (Sale Order: 20 of 101)      

  • Supplied by Stratstone of Mayfair on the 21/01/1994

  • Order confirmation letter in the file from Stratstone confirms that it was the third new Volante built to full 6.3 Widebody specification for registration in the UK

  • Superbly finished in Buckingham Green with a black leather interior piped in Dark Green

  • Substantial service and MOT invoice from Joe Macari in 2011 at 10,486 miles

  • Most recent service in September 2019 at 10,878 miles. MOT valid until 01/10/2020

  • Original book pack and leather wallet plus supporting history file

The Volante (convertible) had been the big seller of the previous generation of AM V8s, so the only surprise was that it took Aston Martin more than two years from the Virage Coupe's introduction to come up with a soft-top sister. The production Virage Volante debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1991, a prototype having been displayed at Birmingham's NEC the previous October. Weighing in at over two tonnes, the open Volante was even heavier than the closed Coupé, itself no lightweight, this increase in weight being accounted for by considerable body strengthening to compensate for the absent roof, plus the extra complication of the power-operated convertible hood. Electrically powered, the latter was beautifully made and incorporated a glass rear window, complete with heated de-misting elements. Mechanically the Volante remained much the same as its closed cousin, though with a slightly lower final drive.

However, there was no disguising the fact that the Volante simply lacked 'grunt' and from the outset, Aston engineers began working on the problem. Their solution, ahead of the forthcoming twin-supercharged Vantage, was for the Works Service Department to offer 6.3-litre conversions for the existing 5,340cc V8-engined cars. Introduced in January 1992, this package could cost more than £60,000 (depending on options) and offered increased power whilst offering a menu of modifications to the bodywork, suspension, and brakes. Power was upped to circa 450bhp with an equivalent increase in torque, thanks to boring and stroking the V8 to 6.3-litres, and, to cope, huge ventilated brakes were fitted to all corners along with bigger 'OZ' alloy-wheels/ tyres, all tucked neatly under muscular flared arches. Most crucially, the suspension was uprated, and a conventional de-Dion rear end was fitted, using Watts linkage/radius arm location, whilst at the front the spring rates were increased. The suspension tuning was the work of Rod Mansfield, the legendary Ford SVO engineer.

In addition to the wider wheel arches, there were a number of other bodywork modifications, air dams, sills etc. that appeared on the large engined 'Widebody' cars and customers with no need for the 6.3's improved performance but who, nevertheless, appreciated the aggressive looks of the 'Widebody', could order the package's cosmetic items in isolation. Aston Martin themselves recognised this demand, building a number of Volantes to Cosmetic Widebody specification but naturally, it is the genuine factory original Widebody cars that are the more desirable and valuable. Only 26 factory-built Widebody cars were ever produced and further provenance with this car is in the fact that according to the Order Confirmation letter in the file from Stratstone to the purchaser, this is the third new Volante built to full 6.3 specifications for registration in the UK.

This lovely example was supplied by Stratstone and first registered on 21/01/1994 to its first owner who lived in Cavendish Square, London which might explain the low mileage. It was finished in the classic Aston colours of Buckingham Green with a black leather interior piped in Dark Green (A3655), Black carpets edged in Dark Green, Green Alcantara headlining with a Black Mohair hood and, as you might expect with a mileage of less than 11,000 from new, remains in wonderful condition. Its first owner parted with the car in 2017 and since then it has been relaxing in a significant private collection.

There is a substantial service and MOT invoice from Joe Macari in 2011 in the file at a mileage of 10,486 and the documented MOT history is as follows; 1997 at 7,333, 1999 at 8,105, 2000 at 8,685, 2001 at 9,123, 2004 at 9,668, 2005 at 10,048, 2007 at 10,193, 2008 at 10,312, 2011 at 10,486, 2016 at 10,694.

1965 Ford Cortina Lotus

Lot # 120 (Sale Order: 21 of 101)      

  • An original A-frame car built in May 1965. Its first owner was Mr Joe N Dyer of Los Altos, California

  • He appears to have kept the car until 1981/1982, when it was registered to John Lynch of Millbrae, California

  • Commenced a photo-documented, 8-stage refurbishment in 2013 with the emphasis on retaining originality

  • The work was carried out by VDM Restorations Rangiora, South Island, New Zealand ($11,000NZ)

  • A thorough inspection by marque specialist Andy Middlehurst in 2019 resulted in a glowing report

  • A fresh MOT and an oil and filter change and were carried out by Saxon of Neath on 16/06/2019

#59206 is an original 'A-frame' car built in May 1965 and delivered to its first owner, a Mr Joe N Dyer of Los Altos California by C J Motors the “Authorized English Ford Line Dealer” of Berkeley, California. It's unusual to think of a gentleman from California ordering a comparatively expensive little, 4-cylinder, British sporting sedan but, judging from the wonderful history file, Joe was a bit of an enthusiast and probably ahead of his time. In the owner's file from that period are a number of US registration cards, the original Dealers Service Policy, and hand-written mileage and fuel logs. The Registration Cards would suggest that he kept the car until 1981/82 prior to it becoming the property of John Lynch of Millbrae, California. The car's history file contains hundreds of receipts, dockets, till slips and invoices from Joe Dyer's ownership, probably every cent he ever spent on it but after he sold it, even though there is a substantial quantity of paperwork from later owners, it is difficult to put in order. It could be an enjoyable bit of research for the car's new owner.

In 2013, #59206 appears in Rangiora, South Island, New Zealand in the ownership of Paul van der Meys. A company called VDM Restorations Ltd embarked on an eight-stage sympathetic refurbishment over late 2013 and Spring 2014. In addition to detailed invoices from VDM totalling nearly $20,000 (NZ), there appear to be all the relevant parts and service invoices (some UK) totalling a further $9,500(NZ) and, judging by Andy Middlehurst's report (following), the restoration was excellent retaining much of the car's originality. Within the owner's file is a Warrant of Fitness (NZ MoT) dated 25/10/2016 with an odometer reading of 23,471.

At some point after this, the car arrived in the UK and in June 2019 was inspected by acknowledged marque specialist, Andy Middlehurst, and a copy of his full report with photographs will be supplied with the car. Andy Middlehurst is one of the world's leading experts on these early cars and he confirms that this is a Dagenham built, early 'Airflow' car that has some features of the 'pre-airflow cars' and is 'one of the most original cars he has ever seen'. The report is very encouraging so it's probably appropriate to list a few of the relevant points.

  • The car is fitted with A-bracket rear suspension which is all original apart from the shocks

  • No anti-tramp brackets confirming it was an A-bracket car

  • The car has all-steel panels. The boot hump is correct and original

  • Correct quarter bumpers and late rear bumper. Front wings plenished as per production

  • Chassis plate and Lotus production plate are both original

  • Front seats, door trims, rear seat, steering wheel, instruments and gear knob all correct for 1965

2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Lot # 121 (Sale Order: 22 of 101)      

• Right-hand drive, 12,700 miles only, in gleaming Obsidian Black with classic red leather • 6.2-Litre V8. Roof-hinged Gullwing doors pay homage to the iconic 300SL • Impressive service history. Most recent in August 2019 and only a few miles since • Structured and panelled entirely in aluminium, lightweight carbon-fibre driveshafts• No better way to describe this vehicle other than, 'truly breathtaking', it really is special

There's something utterly beguiling about a large capacity V8 and the one you'll find under the bonnet of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is an absolute peach. It's a 6.2-litre unit and was the first V8 from the AMG stable to be designed from the ground up, with its initial application being in the E63 super-saloon. The engine was further developed for the SLS with a dry-sump set-up utilising 120 unique parts and, in this guise, could muster a very healthy 563bhp. It's a simply superb engine and even when running on part throttle it rumbles and crackles like distant thunder and lightning. It's mated to a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission complete with a 'Race Start' launch-control system enabling a claimed 0-62mph time of 3.8secs and a top speed of 197mph.

The SLS is one of those machines that had modern-classic written all over it from the moment it first saw the light of day and, whilst it was the first car to be fully designed by AMG in-house, it was sadly the last to be fitted with a naturally aspirated V8. However, it wasn't just a case of prodigious power and retro-inspired styling that made the SLS a modern icon as, when 'EVO Magazine' pitched it up against some pretty serious rivals, it won the motoring press over with its blend of all-round ability and everyday usability. Pitched head-to-head with Aston's V12 Vantage, Ferrari's 599 HGTE and the evergreen Porsche 911 Turbo 'S', the AMG's depth of talent won the day.

The SLS on offer here is a right-hand drive example that’s only covered 12,700 miles from new (at the time of cataloguing) and is finished in the striking combination of Obsidian Black with Classic Red leather. The digital service report in the cars accompanying history file states that it has been serviced six times in its short life, with the most recent documented in August 2019 at Waterhouse Chelmsford Service Centre at an indicated mileage of 12,665 miles. Supplied with two sets of keys and an MOT valid until January 2021 this is an absolutely immaculate example with serious presence.

There is no better way to describe this special vehicle other than 'truly breathtaking'. We feel that it's being offered at a realistic guide price when you consider the quality and performance on offer and, as production ceased in 2014 and Mercedes-AMG have elected not to replace the car, we can only surmise what will happen to values. We commend this fabulous car for your attention.

1973 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 V12

Lot # 122 (Sale Order: 23 of 101)      

  • Stunning, UK-supplied, right-hand drive, automatic Series 3 OTS that has covered less than 55,000 miles

  • A matching numbers car from October 1973 as confirmed by the Jaguar Heritage Certificate

  • Superbly finished in a deep coat of Azure Blue over Cinnamon leather with Biscuit carpets

  • Gleaming chrome wire wheels and smart engine bay. Superbly detailed throughout

  • Quite recently in a private collection. Remarkable condition. Museum quality

  • 54,364 miles (atoc). Will have a fluid levels check, road test and MOT prior to being offered for sale

A decade after the Jaguar E-Type arrived, the design progressively matured through various developments until 1971 when the Series 3 was introduced. Designed to showcase the new smooth and torquey 5.3-litre engine, originally developed for Le Mans, the Series 3 cars were available as a 'Roadster' (convertible) or a '2+2' Coupé. These later cars are easily distinguished from their six-cylinder predecessors by the large cross-slatted front grille, flared wheel arches, wider tyres, a pronounced bonnet bulge, updated bumpers, four exhaust tips and a badge on the rear that proclaims it to be a V12. It also featured uprated brakes, power steering as standard and a large horizontal scoop added to the underside of the bonnet to assist with cooling.The interior was entirely new in the V12, with more comfortable seating, stylish new door panels and a smaller, dished and leather-rimmed steering wheel. Being slightly larger and altogether much softer in nature, the E-Type in Series 3 form had lost the wildness of its youth but gained the long-legged touring profile, to which it was arguably better suited. Approximately 7,990 Series 3 Roadsters were sold worldwide before production ceased in 1975.

We are pleased to offer this original 1973 UK-supplied, right-hand drive, automatic E-Type Series 3 Roadster which, according to its Jaguar Heritage Certificate, was built on 23/10/73, finished in Azure Blue with a Dark Blue interior and dispatched to Lex Motors of Chelmsford on 6/11/73. Prior to our vendor, the Jaguar has been enjoyed by four owners, the most recent of which, Graham Dacre, kept it in his private collection. It appears to have been hardly used over recent years as the MOT Certificate from August 2009 shows 53,712 miles and the odometer indicates 54,364 currently. In fact, it appears to have only covered two (2) miles in the last three years.

In some colours, the Series 3 can look a little portly, however, this striking shade of Azure Blue really suits the car and when complemented by the Navy Blue soft top and tonneau, the chrome wire wheels and the refurbished Cinnamon interior, this is a very good looking E-type. Shut lines and bonnet fit are to factory standard and the chrome work and detailing look showroom fresh.

The car is accompanied by its Operating, Maintenance and Service Handbook, the wiring diagram, a maintenance/ lubrication wall chart in the original pouch, the Heritage Certificate, its V5C and a fresh MOT.

This is a low ownership, low mileage, exceptionally well presented Series 3 in a delightful colour combination and would grace any collection of classic Jaguars.

2004 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG (R230)

Lot # 123 (Sale Order: 24 of 101)      

  • First-generation R230 transformed by AMG. 13,622 miles

  • 6-litre, twin-turbocharged, V12 producing 604bhp and 740lbs/ft

  • Dramatically presented in Almandine Black Metallic with 19", dual-spoke AMG alloys

  • Fabulous bespoke Designo interior with Comfort Ventilated Seats

  • Full service-history. Six recorded services with the most recent at 13,307 miles

  • We are in danger of running out of superlatives. Possibly the best-looking R230 in the world

AMG, the official performance division of Mercedes-Benz, has a long history of producing high-performance derivatives of Mercedes' standard production vehicles, and these improved versions enjoy an enthusiastic following worldwide. When the stunning SL55AMG was introduced in 2003 with its 5.4-litre V8 producing 476 BHP and a tree stump pulling 520lbs/ feet of torque it was naturally assumed it would remain top of the range, however, AMG had a further party-trick. A year later the SL 65 AMG arrived and was the new 'King of the Castle'. It retained the stylish looks and civilised manners of the rest of the range but was powered by a V12 leviathan capable of crushing the competition at a push of the accelerator. The twin-turbo, 6.0-litre engine delivers a remarkable 604hp which is tamed through an intricate network of safety features and keep-you-alive electronics. At 740 lbs-ft, the torque output is sufficient to keep you pinned in the immaculately stitched leather seats, in any gear at any time, whilst the five-speed automatic transmission with manual capability provides a good level of control. Distinctive 19" dual-spoke AMG-signature alloys camouflage the eight-piston caliper performance brakes and the suspension has been subtly tweaked to deal with the general increase in numbers. Performance is documented at 0-60mph in 3.6 secs and 0-100 mph in 7.5 seconds. All in all, a beautifully packaged amalgam of huge power, sumptuous comfort and window-rattling noise.

This distinctive, original UK-supplied, right-hand drive, SL65AMG was ordered from Greenoaks Mercedes in late July 2004 and from the original purchase invoice, we can see that it was specified in Almandine Black Metallic with Designo Single-tone exclusive leather, Designo Maple door caps, Designo Anthracite carpets and Comfort Ventilated Seats bringing the overall total to a substantial £151,239.19. The Pre-Delivery inspection sheet is dated 16-11-2004 and is in the history file. At the time of cataloguing the indicated mileage is 13,622 and this is corroborated by the service booklet which records six services at Mercedes-Benz /AMG dealers with the most recent at Mercedes Norwich on 11-10-2019 at 13,307 miles. There are invoices in the file that detail these services and any additional works that were required as well as a complete complement of MOTs going back to 7-01-2007 including the current one which is valid until 20-04-2021.

The car appears to be in superb condition throughout and is supplied with both keys and the complete owner's manuals in the correct binder. The R230 is one of the best-looking cars from the period and the larger-engined AMG cars have become collectable modern classics. Considering that less than 14,000 miles ago over £150,000 would have been necessary to own this fabulous, top-of-the-range Mercedes, today's guide seems sensible indeed.

2015 Land Rover Defender 110 SVX 'Spectre' JB24

Lot # 124 (Sale Order: 25 of 101)      

  • Car "Number 9" of 9 special SVX Defenders created for 24th James Bond film, Spectre

  • The Spectre Defenders were all built by Bowler Motorsport and finished in a menacing Santorini Black

  • Featuring huge 37-inch tyres, heavy-duty roll cages, rose-jointed suspension and Bilstein dampers

  • #462459, was developed for drive-by sections of the snow scene and consequently remained undamaged

  • This striking vehicle presents superbly having covered less than 1,000km from new

  • Its history file includes its Land Rover build spec, a full set of employee timesheets relating to 462459's build, an EC Certificate of Conformity, correspondence between Bowler and JLR as well as invoices for the vehicle and a copy of the original contract

  • With the car are a 6-month 'Crew Production Calendar' from Spectre 007, location call sheets listing the cast and crew, an Austrian number plate '62734Z' used in the filming and the small plastic SV-X badge that was stuck on the rear

  • Currently not UK-registered but we are informed that subject to a few modifications and an IVA test it should be possible to register and MOT the car in the normal way

In 1962, over a winning hand of Chemin-de-Fer, a secret agent introduced himself and twenty-five films later he needs no introduction. By the third film, 1964’s Goldfinger, the franchise had found its footing and 007 his car, the Aston Martin DB5. The title song’s opening chorus “Goldfinger, He's the man, the man with the Midas touch” as belted out by Shirley Bassey, is relevant today as it can be argued that any car featured in the long-running film series has the “Midas touch”. Values of the Aston Martin DB5 have skyrocketed since the re-introduction of the model in Daniel Craig’s first outing as James Bond in 2006’s Casino Royale. It had a starring role in 2012’s Skyfall and featured in the closing credits of the 2015 film Spectre.

Sam Mendes, the director of both Skyfall and Spectre wanted a spectacular snow chase scene and turned to Jaguar Land Rover to assist. With the standard Land Rover 110 Defender deemed a bit too bland for a baddy’s getaway car they turned to leading Land Rover modifiers, Bowler. The firm transformed 10 standard production, Santorini Black, crew-cab 110s into the SVX Concept or Spectre Defender. The cars featured huge 37-inch tyres, heavy-duty roll cages plus toughened suspensions with rose joints and Bilstein rally dampers. A hydraulic handbrake was installed, and its lever repositioned. The engine was tuned to give 180 bhp and Recaro seats fitted. Three ‘halo’ cars with high finishes were created for close-up shots while the rest were damaged by the aeroplane piloted by James Bond.

The Land Rovers fell into two categories for the chase sequence, high-speed 'getaway' road cars and low-speed snow cars. This particular Land Rover #462459 (listed as D3 from LR and 'Car 9' by Bowlers) was developed for the snow scene and given the way in which some of these cars were used during filming, it is unsurprising that not all survived intact with three cars out of the original ten apparently destroyed. However, this particular Spectre Defender was used for drive-by filming only, sustaining no damage during those scenes, and represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Currently, this vehicle is not UK-registered but our vendor believes that following disconnection of the hydraulic hand brake used for special effects and subject to an IVA (Individual Vehicle Approval) test it should be possible to register and MOT the car in the normal way.

The car's history file is interesting and includes a full risk assessment form for 'D3 SALLDHSP8A462459', its LR build spec, a full set of employee timesheets relating to 462459's build, an EC Certificate of Conformity, correspondence between Bowler and JLR as well as invoices for the vehicle and a copy of the original contract, and an MOT dated 18/01/2017. Fascinatingly, it also includes a monthly 'Crew Production Calendar' from 'Spectre 007' running from December 2014 to June '15 and Location Call Sheets detailing the cast and crew and who should be where and when and wearing what. With the car, there is also the small plastic 'SV-X' badge that was stuck on the rear and an Austrian number plate ''62734Z' which we believe was used o
