Range Rover Classic (four door)

Range Rover Classic (four door)

Lot # 64898 (Sale Order: 1 of 38)

The first generation Range Rover was not initially designed as a luxury 4x4; although certainly up-market compared to preceding Land Rover models. The early Range Rovers had fairly basic, utilitarian interiors with vinyl seats and plastic dashboards designed to be washed down with a hose. Features such as power assisted steering, carpeted floors, air conditioning, cloth or leather seats, and wooden interior trim were fitted later. It was a body-on-frame design with a box section ladder type chassis similar to contemporary Land Rovers. It utilised coil springs as opposed to leaf springs, permanent four-wheel drive and four-wheel disc brakes and was originally powered by the Rover V8 engine.This low mileage Range Rover Classic on offer today was manufactured during the first year’s production of the four door model. In the rare colour combination of Shetland Beige, which was only in production for two years, it is complemented by the original bronze velvet trim which shows very little sign of wear. Also original are the one-piece door trims in palomino. Typical of these early four-door examples, it features the pop riveted wings and body panels found on the two-door, which was changed at the BA series.The vendor describes the car as "Mechanically very, very good, drives tight and performs well with no feeling of wear in any of the mechanics". The underside is completely original and solid with no welding or repairs, and has recently been stripped and treated with Waxoil; a treatment which importantly, was photographed before, during and after. The car is offered with desirable power steering, the original jack and majority of tools, and the accompanying history file contains an MoT test certificate, valid until June 2018. With prices buoyant for these early Range Rovers, quality should not be confused with price; however, this particular model has been suitably cherished and priced sensibly.

Porsche 356C Coupé

Porsche 356C Coupé

Lot # 65129 (Sale Order: 2 of 38)

Although few would have realised it at the time, the 1948 launch of the Porsche 356 was a significant milestone in automotive history. It marked the commercial birth of what has become one of the world's greatest car manufacturers; a company that has, many times, won Le Mans on Sunday and inspired the rich of the road on Monday. Its achievements are unique. The 356 was a collaboration between Ferry' Porsche, the son of the company's founder, and its chief body engineer Erwin Komenda. The first examples of the 356 were handcrafted from aluminium in Gmund, Austria. And, with parts in short supply following the war, the model initially employed the engine, transmission and suspension from the Volkswagen Beetle (the car famously designed by Porsche Senior). However, within two years the car had been considerably re-engineered and was less reliant on stock Volkswagen parts, while production had moved to Züffenhausen in Germany with bodies now made of steel. Thanks to efficient aerodynamics, sporting handling and fine build quality, the 356 quickly established itself as a worthy competition car and it achieved success in such top events as Le Mans, the Mille Miglia, Targa Florio and Carrera Panamericana, as well as countless other races and rallies around the world. The development of the 356 was charted by the suffixes A, B and C. Produced from 1959 to 1963, the B Series cars are largely distinguished by a higher nose, larger bumpers and twin-choke carburettors. They were made in two generations of body style - T5 and T6. The latter, introduced in mid 1962, featured larger windows and twin engine bonnet grills with the 356C arriving in 1964 and featuring disc brakes all round.This 356 was purchased by the vendor from the Netherlands after a nine month search involving numerous flights across the UK, Netherlands, Germany, France and Belgium. This search spanned visits to scores of dealers and private collectors and the inspection of over 40 cars. His extensive search lead him to this example. Built in 1964, however first registered in 1965 in Germany, between 2008 and 2012 the car went through a thorough quality focused restoration in Germany. The engine was replaced by a stronger 1720cc, 90bhp engine (GS Spec with rolling road report available) whilst the body was restored and repainted. This 356 is complemented with twin Weber carburettors, a stainless steel sports exhaust, new Koni shock absorbers and the six volt electrical system which has been retained. The interior features speedster black seats and new carpeting in overall great condition with a touch of patina. The chromework is correct and vivid on the bumpers, headlights etc. with some patina on the window surrounds.The car is UK registered and taxed, it comes with a German CoA (Certificate of Approval and English CoA), an extensive history file and records of ownership from a couple of meticulous and fastidious doctors. The vendor states that the car is a dream to drive, the engine is spotless and the colour really shines in the sun. The car has recently been given a full service and work-through with PR Services, a 356 specialist to the tune of £3,000 coupled with an independent valuation of £80,000. This can all be found within the history file for this very handsome example.

Ford Model A Hotrod

Ford Model A Hotrod

Lot # 65207 (Sale Order: 3 of 38)

The Ford Model A was manufactured between 1928 and 1931 and was the second huge success for Ford after its predecessor, the Model T. The Model A was offered in a wide variety of body styles and was the first Ford to incorporate the standard set of driver controls with a conventional clutch, brake pedal, accelerator and gearshift.This Ford Roadster Hotrod has been extensively re-worked in recent years and presents in exceptional order. The knowledgeable and enthusiastic vendor has enjoyed this fun vehicle immensely, even completing a round trip to Le Mans. The specification is impressive; she is fitted with a 3500cc Rover V8 engine which is mated to a recently reconditioned Borg Warner 65 three-speed automatic gearbox and a Volvo rear axle. The stainless steel twin exhausts emit a beautiful tone, commensurate with such a sporty vehicle. Sitting on a well shod set of Boyd Coddington billet wheels, the aesthetics of this Hotrod are equally as impressive as the mechanics. The bodywork is in excellent order, with panels that are in proportion and a first class paint finish. Interior wise UFF 117 is trimmed in a one off custom interior finished in suede/faux leather. The instruments are minimal and easy to read, this Ford Hotrod offers surprisingly good ergonomics. With chrome flame etched exposed rocker covers, chrome billet steering wheel and chrome piston shaped gear lever, it is fair to say this vehicle will turn a head in a crowd. Supplied with a V5C registration document and benefitting from being both road fund license and MoT exempt, this Hotrod is offered for sale with ‘bring a smile to your face’ motoring.

Mini Moke

Mini Moke

Lot # 65220 (Sale Order: 4 of 38)

The Mini Moke is a vehicle based on the Mini and designed for the British Motor Corporation (BMC) by Sir Alec Issigonis. The name comes from ‘Mini’- the car with which the Moke shares many parts - and ‘Moke’, which is an archaic dialect term for donkey. The initial design was a prototype for a light military vehicle in the style of the American Jeep, but its small wheels and low ground clearance made it impractical as an off-road vehicle. It was subsequently offered in a civilian version as a low-cost, easily maintained utility vehicle. The Moke finally achieved success as a beach buggy, becoming a popular 'cult' vehicle in the Seychelles, Australia, the United States and many tropical resorts in the Caribbean. Now equally collectable as the Willys Jeep and Land Rover, a Moke offers fun in abundance whether popping to the shops or a trip along a coastal road in the sun.Originally registered on 25th April 1967, this Mini Moke has only had two previous keepers throughout its 50 years on the road. The current vendor had her restored approximately four years ago and as such this Mini presents in very good order. The 998cc engine runs well, the gearbox is smooth in operation and we are advised she drives with no known faults. Finished in yellow, this is a pretty looking Moke and comes fitted with spot lights, Minilite wheels, front and rear nudge bars and also a full set of wet weather equipment. Parts are in plentiful supply for these vehicles and maintenance should be within the capability of any mechanically minded owner. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year's MoT test certificate together with a collection of MoT’s and a history folder, this genuine, iconic and desirable Mini is offered for sale at a realistic estimate given the age, condition and low ownership.

Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 Centennial Coupé

Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 Centennial Coupé

Lot # 65232 (Sale Order: 5 of 38)

The Z06 arrived as a 2006 model in the third quarter of 2005 and is the lightest of all Corvette models. The Z06 was equipped with the largest displacement small-block ever produced, a new 7.0 litre (427 cu in) engine producing an impressive 505 bhp and is the most powerful naturally aspirated engine put into a production car from General Motors. In addition to the larger engine, the Corvette Z06 has a dry sump and con-rods made out of titanium. The frame of the Z06 is constructed from aluminium, saving 136 pounds over the standard steel frame. The Z06's body differentiates itself from the standard Corvette with larger front and rear fenders and an intake inlet scoop on the front bumper. The front fenders are constructed with carbon fibre and the rear fenders contain ducts to aid in cooling the rear brakes. Offered exclusively in Carbon Flash Metallic, the Centennial Edition kit includes Satin Black graphics and unique lightweight cast-spun aluminium Centennial Satin Black wheels, all cars come with red brake calipers and feature magnetic selective ride control. Inside, Ebony leather with red stitching accents dominate, while the seats, steering wheel and armrests feature microfibre suede accents. The headrests have an embossed Centennial Edition logo and the steering wheel hub carries the same ‘Louis Chevrolet 100’ graphic found on the car's B-post and wheel centre caps. Arguably the most subtle variation to be found is seen in the signature crossed-flags exterior badge, which sees the traditional Fleur-de-lis element replaced with ‘100’ in all Centennial Edition cars.Originally registered in the name of Bauer Millett in Manchester on 1st January 2012, the vendor purchased the car from them on 1st February 2014. The low mileage of 7,456km is confirmed by the service history and MoT test certificates. Believed to be the only European specification Z06 Centennial Edition in the UK, this Corvette is a stunning car to look at and exceeds all expectations when driven. The V8 engine emits a superb note and the throttle response is impressive to say the least. A quick short change manual gearbox defines this car as a true driver’s car and one to be both respected and enjoyed in equal measure. The specification is comprehensive with heated seats, keyless entry and start, xenon headlamps, ceramic brakes, air conditioning and carbon fibre in plentiful supply. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate, this rare and stunning Z06 Centennial Coupé is not for the faint hearted. If Darth Vader had a company car this would be it.

Bentley S1 Continental Fastback

Bentley S1 Continental Fastback

Lot # 65251 (Sale Order: 6 of 38)

There are many exquisite works of art produced by man; artists, designers and engineers have all played their part in the pantheon that represents the great feats of endeavour over the last thousand years. J. M. W. Turner, The Fighting Temeraire, Charles Barry’s Highclere Castle for all you Downton Abbey enthusiasts, anything by Bach and the Bentley S1 Continental Fastback. The fastest (and most expensive) car on the road in 1956, fabulous from any angle and offering the same level of comfort as your favourite Chesterfield sofa in front of a roaring fire with a spaniel at your feet.The fusion of Bentley engineering and the design concept of H. J. Mulliner produced one of the most desirable motor vehicles of the era. Its appeal remains timeless and is regarded by collectors worldwide as one of the most beautiful high performance grand touring cars ever produced. Its luxurious interior and road manners are the pinnacle of the Bentley marque’s Silent Sports Car philosophy.It should also be noted that the gulf that separates a Continental from the average car in all the qualities that have a bearing on safety at speed is immense. Indeed Raymond Mays was quoted in Autocar as saying, “in acceleration, in braking, in cornering power, in roadholding, in responsiveness to the controls, this Bentley is the equal of modern racing cars, and superior to some.”The S-Type's new chassis incorporated improved brakes and suspension as well as an enlarged (4,887cc) and more powerful version of the existing inlet-over-exhaust, six-cylinder engine, which for the first time was identical in specification in both Rolls-Royce and Bentley forms. The Continental version came with a shorter radiator and higher gearing and, for a time at least, could be ordered with right-hand gear change, manual transmission.This delightfully handsome Bentley was originally registered on 24th January 1956 and has been owned by the current vendor for the last 20 years. The blue coachwork is in good order as is the brightwork. Open the door on this Bentley and you are welcomed into one of the most aesthetically pleasing interiors ever to be designed on a motor car. The armchair-like seats are supremely comfortable and the dashboard can only be described as exquisite. The dials are deep set into walnut and easy to read whilst the switches are all beautifully to hand, resulting in an effortless drive. The engine performs exactly how this tried and trusted unit should, as does the four-speed automatic gearbox. Taking into account the style, grace and power of this S1 Continental Fastback can classic car motoring get any better than this.

Aston Martin V8 Series III

Aston Martin V8 Series III

Lot # 65263 (Sale Order: 7 of 38)

The muscular lines penned by William Towns combined with the exquisite exhaust notes from the well-engineered V8 put together by Tadek Marek produce a motorcar that has style and power at its core. With 5.3 litres of combustion at its disposal, this provided the ability to reach 160mph whilst carrying four people in comfort. Considered to be the purists' Aston, the bonnet houses an enlarged bonnet scoop with four twin-choke Weber carburettors providing oxygen for the V8.Supplied in the original factory colour of Caribbean Blue with a matching blue leather interior, this sound example records just two former keepers; the previous vendor having owned the car since 2015 with the one prior since 1984. Now offered by Aston Martin at Newport Pagnell, it has been inspected by the Works Service technicians with the important areas, the sills, declared sound. Indeed they went on to confirm that the underside as a whole is in good order and commensurate with a car that has been cared for throughout its life with the mileage reflecting the enjoyment had over the years. The technicians on Tickford Street have also been through the rest of the car and are satisfied with the mechanical integrity, although they remarked on some micro-blistering of the original paintwork in places. The drive from its last home to Newport Pagnell was faultless and trouble-free with the owner then collecting a more modern V8 example. Offered with a full MoT test certificate and partial history, this muscular Aston is in good order and has much still to give.

Porsche 911/997 Carrera 2

Porsche 911/997 Carrera 2

Lot # 65279 (Sale Order: 8 of 38)

The 997 is the internal designation for the Porsche 911 model manufactured between 2004 and 2012. The 997 was an evolution of the preceding 996, with the most significant changes being interior and exterior styling. Larger 18 inch wheels and other engineering changes include slightly increased power; however, the car is technically similar to its predecessor. A new S version was offered, with additional power from a slightly larger engine, sports suspension, and sports exhaust. The 997 is the most commercially successful 911 of all time, having sold 100,000 units of the first phase alone between its introduction in 2005 and July 2007. It has also received mostly positive reviews from the worldwide motoring press.Originally registered on 5th July 2008, this Porsche Carrera 2S is in unmarked condition and ready to be enjoyed immediately. Having been maintained for the last four years by Porsche Centre Colchester, she is in great order mechanically with no known faults and bodywork wise she is unmarked. The Basalt Black paintwork has a deep rich finish to it and the black interior shows no sign of any wear and tear. Benefitting from rear parking aids and a Bose surround system, this Porsche is described as being a delight to drive. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate together with a substantial history folder, this 911/997 is a splendid example.

A new S version was offered, with additional power from a slightly larger engine, sports suspension, and sports exhaust. The 997 is the most commercially successful 911 of all time, having sold 100,000 units of the first phase alone between its introduction in 2005 and July 2007. It has also received mostly positive reviews from the worldwide motoring press.Originally registered on 5th July 2008, this Porsche Carrera 2S is in unmarked condition and ready to be enjoyed immediately. Having been maintained for the last four years by Porsche Centre Colchester, she is in great order mechanically with no known faults and bodywork wise she is unmarked. The Basalt Black paintwork has a deep rich finish to it and the black interior shows no sign of any wear and tear. Benefitting from rear parking aids and a Bose surround system, this Porsche is described as being a delight to drive. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate together with a substantial history folder, this 911/997 is a splendid example.

Alfa Romeo Spider

Alfa Romeo Spider

Lot # 65298 (Sale Order: 9 of 38)

The Alfa Romeo Spider was manufactured from 1966 to 1993 and is widely regarded as a design classic, remaining in production for almost three decades. The three first series were assembled by Pininfarina in Grugliasco and the fourth series in San Giorgio Canavese; this was the last rear wheel drive Alfa Romeo. The Spider underwent a major styling revamp in 1983 which saw the introduction of black rubber front and rear bumpers. The front bumper incorporated the grille and a small soft rubber spoiler was added to the boot lid, which altered the exterior appearance of the car considerably. Various other minor mechanical and aesthetic modifications were also made and the 1600 car dropped the 'Junior' name. The Quadrifoglio Verde (green four-leaf clover) model was introduced in 1986 with many aesthetic tweaks, including side skirts, mirrors, new front and rear spoilers, hard rubber boot mounted spoilers, unique 15" alloys and optional removable hardtop. Different interior trim included blood red carpets and grey leather seats with red stitching. The QV was offered in only three colours: red, silver and black. It was otherwise mechanically identical to the standard Spider Veloce model, with a 1962cc double overhead cam, four-cylinder engine (twin two-barrel carburettors and five-speed manual transmission).This particular example of the stylish Spider is presented in metallic blue with beige interior and contrasting black hood. The present owner has used it sparingly whilst in his possession; however he has now decided it is time to part company with the car. The bodywork and interior are all in good condition throughout and the paintwork is also said to be in very good order. These are great little sports cars, admired by many and are always enormous fun to drive on either country roads or motorways- especially with the hood down.

Mercedes-Benz 2.5-16 Evolution I

Mercedes-Benz 2.5-16 Evolution I

Lot # 65300 (Sale Order: 10 of 38)

In 1983, Mercedes introduced the Cosworth 2.3-16 into their range and the new 16-valve cars were substantially different from the other 190 models. The body kit reduced the drag coefficient and the steering wheel was smaller than that on other 190s, whilst the fuel tank was enlarged from 55 to 70 litres. The Getrag 5-speed manual gearbox was unique to the 16-valve and featured a 'dog-leg' first gear. An enlarged 2.5-litre engine replaced the 2.3 in 1988 and offered double-row timing chains to fix the unreliable single chains on the early 2.3s. The power output was up by 17bhp with a slight increase in torque. It is debated whether the 2.5 engine was developed and built by Mercedes-Benz or by Cosworth. Mercedes were not keen to broadcast the fact that their most sporting saloon car had an engine developed by a British company. The suspension on the 16-valve models is very different from the standard 190 and, as well as being lower and stiffer, it has larger anti-roll bars, harder bushes and hydraulic self-levelling suspension on the rear, allowing the rear ride-height to remain constant even when the car is fully loaded. This particular example is the Evolution 1 model and is presented in metallic black with black leather interior. It’s bodykit has been upgraded with the Evolution II kit being fitted, giving it a somewhat brutish appearance, much admired by many around the globe and instantly recognisable. These are highly sought after models with examples of the Evolution II fetching in the region of £200,000. A great opportunity to acquire a part of Mercedes-Benz and Cosworth history which turns heads today just as it did in 1989. The car also comes with a V5 document and an MoT certificate which expires in April 2018.

Alvis TD21 Coupé

Alvis TD21 Coupé

Lot # 65309 (Sale Order: 11 of 38)

The Alvis TD21 was built between 1958 and 1963 and was an updated version of the TC which was liked for its style and performance but passenger and luggage accommodation were unsatisfactory. Accordingly, the amalgamated firm of Mulliner Park Ward, by now a Rolls-Royce subsidiary, was approached to re-design the body to meet with British market requirements. The result was the TD21 which was introduced late in 1958. Park Ward's re-design of the body retained a superficial resemblance to Hermann Graber's original but allowed greater room; especially in the rear and better luggage capacity. A car with manual transmission was tested by the British magazine 'The Motor' in 1960 and had a top speed of 103mph, accelerating from 0 to 60mph in 13.5 seconds.This particular coupé version of this popular motor car is currently a restoration project and comes with a considerable inventory of parts to enable the incumbent to commence its restoration in the knowledge that there will be very few items left to purchase. The bodywork is gold metallic and the interior has beige leather seats which are apparently all original. With its interesting cinematic history and links to Robert Mitchum (which can be seen on the DVD copy of the film included in the sale) it makes this particular restoration all the more attractive. These models are highly sought after and are a great tribute to British sports car manufacturing of the period.

Triumph TR4 Works Recreation

Triumph TR4 Works Recreation

Lot # 65312 (Sale Order: 12 of 38)

The Triumph Works Competition Department, under Ken Richardson, was shut down in 1961; however, in February 1962, a new department was set up under the control of Harry Webster and the engineering department. The motorsport programme was considered essential to improve Triumph’s image and to launch the next generation TR, the TR4 that was introduced during the Autumn of 1961. In February 1962, the first TR4s turned up at the engineering department for competition preparation; namely, the 3VC, 4VC, 5VC and 6VC. BMC were using red at the time so Powder Blue was chosen as the team colour as it was easily recognisable. British Racing Green had been rejected as it was hard to spot whilst white cars tended to get filthy quickly. These tough, rally prepared TR4s enjoyed early successes with 2nd, 3rd and 4th in class being achieved during the 1962 Tulip rally whilst a credible 1st in class and 4th overall was achieved by 4VC at the later Alpine Rally of 1962. By 1964 the TR4s were showing their age whilst their smaller siblings, the racing and rally Spitfires, were showing promise.We are delighted to offer this Powder Blue 1962 Triumph TR4 that has been meticulously restored and prepared for fast road and competition use. The car was restored to concours condition during the early 1990’s, culminating in a headline feature in the July 1995 edition of ‘Classic & Sportscar’ magazine. In the intervening period, 415 VC changed ownership and was subject to an intensive schedule of improvements by a well-respected marque specialist in Nottinghamshire, to echo the spirit of the Triumph Works Rally cars. The modifications and upgrades, of which there were many, included the following; strengthened chassis frame, engine rebuilt to provide a reliable and tractable output of 150BHP, twin Weber carburettors and uprated fuel delivery system, uprated steering and suspension systems, full competition exhaust system, Revington TR leather competition seat assemblies with full harnesses, uprated braking system, with balance bar and rear brake disc conversion, uprated cooling system with Kenlowe cooling fan and aluminium radiator, heated front windscreen, uprated electrical system, with alternator and period “Cibié” driving lamps. More recently, 415 VC has received further attention by the well-respected marque specialist, Manvers Triumph, which involved the installation of correct front wing side vents and grilles, oil catch tank, a bulkhead air scoop, competition tow-hook set, a custom-fitted Safety Devices rear roll cage and a set of genuine Minilite road wheels.Significantly, as with any TR4 of this age, its specifications are extremely important and it is worth noting that 415 VC retains its original Coventry issued number plate, early domed glass instruments, overdrive gearbox and has the rare and sought after aluminium hard/surrey top with the central portion being removable (later versions were made in steel). On inspection, the coachwork displays very well with unusually faultless door gaps; almost impossible to obtain to this standard. The undersides reflect the condition of the car throughout and are well protected with Morris Ankor Wax preservative. The interior is excellent and boasts, a Mota-Lita steering wheel and the original enamelled dashboard. On a recent test, this TR4 drove very well; of particular note is how well the overdrive, operational on 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears, operated smoothly both during selection and de-selection. A large file accompanies this TR4 and includes the aforementioned magazine article, invoices, photographs of works carried out and a UK V5 registration document. We are informed that 415 VC will also arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate.This is a genuine UK, righthand drive TR4 which offers an excellent opportunity to acquire a finely prepared example of the marque that reflects those ‘Works’ Triumphs, and is capable of immediate use, both in road and competition form.

Ariel 350cc Red Hunter

Ariel 350cc Red Hunter

Lot # 65330 (Sale Order: 13 of 38)

By 1930, Ariel's Val Page-designed singles had gained a rear-mounted magneto and their distinctive timing cover, and the basic engine design, although frequently revised, would last well into the post-war era. The sports versions were christened 'Red Hunter' and under Page's successor Edward Turner, developed into fast and stylish machines. In 1946 the Hunters became the first models to feature Ariel's new telescopic front fork, and the following year could be ordered with the optional Anstey Link plunger rear suspension. In 1956 full-width alloy hubs were adopted across the range, and the Red Hunters continued in this form until production of Ariel four-strokes ceased in 1959.Dating from the final year of production, this 350 Red Hunter appears to be largely original and has been used very little of late. Sitting proudly on its original Dunlop wheel rims and still sporting the original Smiths chronometric speedometer, this Ariel oozes charm and charisma. The vendor has a small but impressive collection of motorcycles and is now running out of space; hence the reason why this handsome machine is offered for sale. Supplied with a registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate, this Ariel Red Hunter is offered for sale without reserve.

Matchless 350cc

Matchless 350cc

Lot # 65332 (Sale Order: 14 of 38)

In 1938, Matchless and AJS became part of Associated Motorcycles (AMC), with both companies producing models under their own brands. During the amalgamations that occurred in the British motorcycle industry in the 1960’s, the Matchless four-stroke twin was replaced with the Norton twin, ending a long history of independent production. By 1967, the Matchless single cylinders had ceased production.First registered on 13th April 1963, this delightful Matchless 350 is in largely original condition. The prominent badge on a Matchless sets the tone for a stylish motorcycle and this is a fine example of a 350 short stroke. Supplied with the original buff logbook, together with a V5C registration document and a full year’s MoT test certificate together with a selection of invoices, this Matchless is offered for sale without reserve.

Triumph Miglia Speedster

Triumph Miglia Speedster

Lot # 65335 (Sale Order: 15 of 38)

The Miglia Speedster is a Triumph based special with classic lines reminiscent of many 1950's sports cars; with particular similarity to the Maserati A6 GCS manufactured between 1953 and 1955. The car could be purchased in component form or factory assembled with the choice of being built upon the Triumph Herald, Vitesse or Spitfire; all cars which have the benefit of parts and specialists being in plentiful supply.This particular Speedster on offer has been built to a very high standard and has been significantly modified from its standard form. The exterior differs in that it now wears twin fins with headrests, instead of the usual single fin for the driver, thus adding safety and comfort for the passenger also. In addition, stainless steel dummy vents adorn the front lower wing sections behind the front wheels (apparently from a speed boat) and the engine bay, with its aluminium work evident, is well detailed. The bright red coachwork, sporting an aluminium grill and wrap around fly screen, is complemented by a set of 15inch knock on wire wheels whilst the interior is trimmed in red with black carpet. The dashboard is aluminium and the bucket seats are trimmed in red vinyl; for ease of entry and exit, a detachable steering wheel is fitted. Mechanically, the Speedster is powered by a 2500cc Triumph 2500 TC engine which, we have been informed, has been rebuilt and is accessed by removing the detachable lightweight bonnet. Fuel is fed via triple Weber carburettors whilst the engine is mated to a Triumph manual overdrive gearbox. A Jigsaw Racing Services 3:89 Big Diff is fitted whilst the suspension is uprated with polyurethane bushes all around. The resulting product looks stunning, but not only that; on a recent road test, the Speedster performed admirably and kept pace with modern traffic with ease. The Miglia Speedster is correctly registered as a Triumph Miglia Speed with the 2500cc engine annotated upon the UK V5 registration document and, we are informed, will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate. This Miglia Speedster certainly provides you with an historic motoring experience and in a sports car that is sure to turn heads wherever you venture.

Fiat 500L Abarth Recreation

Fiat 500L Abarth Recreation

Lot # 65353 (Sale Order: 16 of 38)

The Fiat 500 surely needs little introduction. Suffice to say that this compact car became ripe for tuning with Abarth leading the way in converting them into successful fast road and racing cars of the period. With genuine Abarth models now seeing some extraordinary prices, it is no surprise that many have been converted to replicate these versions of the Fiat 500.This lovely Fiat 500 L was discovered in Parma, Northern Italy in early 2017 and imported into the UK later in October. The Fiat was found to be in remarkable condition; easily confirmed by an overall inspection of the coachwork and, in particular, we encourage you to take a look at the undersides whose condition reflects that of the topsides. Mechanically, the car drives very well, the 499cc engine mated to an all-synchromesh 4-speed gearbox, feeling more powerful than a standard car. The brakes have been overhauled and new shock absorbers fitted all around. Further works include modification to an Abarth Recreation which involved over £1,500 of specialist parts being used and included Jaeger instruments, wheels, exhaust, rocker cam cover, fuel tank, sump, grill, open engine cover modification and mirrors. The original odometer reads 65652km; however, with the fitment of the new Jaeger odometer, the reading is now zero miles. This Fiat 500 will arrive at the sale with an MoT test certificate valid until November 2018 and a UK registration. Finished in the attractive combination of Fiat white with contrasting red interior, this is an exquisite example that has been very well executed; a fact that the true enthusiast will surely not miss.

Cadillac XLR Roadster

Cadillac XLR Roadster

Lot # 65369 (Sale Order: 17 of 38)

The Cadillac XLR is a luxury roadster that was intended to be Cadillac's flagship sports car.

The XLR features as standard equipment; heated and cooled leather seats, wood interior trim, remote keyless access, 18 inch alloy wheels, side airbags as well as a navigation, audio, and DVD system sharing a 7-inch dashboard screen.

Bentley Turbo RT

Bentley Turbo RT

Lot # 65371 (Sale Order: 18 of 38)

The Bentley Turbo RT was the last, rarest, most powerful and most expensive of the Turbo R line. Introduced in 1997, the Bentley RT came with the 400bhp turbo, 6.75 litre V8 engine from the Bentley two-door Continental T. It differentiates visually from other Bentley Turbo R models by its sport wheels, colour-coded grille slats and colour-coded bumpers. Performance was considered 'sufficient' with a top speed limited to 150mph! The car's base price was £132,000, being approximately £40,000 more than the Turbo R and was manufactured during 1997 and 1998 with just 252 units being produced.Finished in Atlantic Blue Mica with contrasting Sandstone hide, this Bentley Turbo RT has quite obviously been very well cared for and cosseted; a point confirmed by the condition in which it is presented today. Originally supplied by Broughtons of Birmingham, this Bentley is currently in the ownership of the fifth keeper and comes with an extensive service history and build sheet that includes the inclusion of the Sport Mode Switch, giving this RT extra rpm and turbo boost. Every service is recorded in the service book up to and including the last recorded entry in July 2016 and since that last service, this Turbo RT has covered less than 1,000 miles. In addition to the service book, several invoices for works are recorded by renowned specialists from 1999 to 2017 and total in excess of £51,000. More recently, works in 2016 and 2017 have included an engine strip, head gasket replacement, new battery and replacement of both hydraulic accumulators and spheres; these works totalling just under £10,000. This fine automobile will be presented with its extensive history file, including specification sheet, book pack, UK V5 registration document and an MoT, with no advisories, valid until November 2018. These late special edition Bentleys are enormous value for money and with such low numbers produced, are becoming very sought after.

The Bentley Turbo RT was the last, rarest, most powerful and most expensive of the Turbo R line. Introduced in 1997, the Bentley RT came with the 400bhp turbo, 6.75 litre...more V8 engine from the Bentley two-door Continental T. It differentiates visually from other Bentley Turbo R models by its sport wheels, colour-coded grille slats and colour-coded bumpers.

Airstream 19ft Caravan

Airstream 19ft Caravan

Lot # 65387 (Sale Order: 19 of 38)

Airstream is an American brand of caravans which are easily recognized by the distinctive shape of their rounded and polished aluminum coachwork. This body shape dates back to the 1930s and is based on designs created by Hawley Bowlus. Airstream trailers and recreational vehicles are manufactured in Jackson Center, Ohio. The company, now a division of Thor Industries, employs more than 800 people, and is the oldest in the industry. Airstreamers are a group who share a community spirit because of their common love of the trailers. In the early 1950s, Airstream company founder Wally Byam began leading groups of owners on travels to many parts of the world, where the towed trailers were quite a remarkable sight. Photos taken of the trailers in front of many famous tourist sites were common. This promoted a mystique which surrounded Airstreams and persists to this day.The vendor of this Airstream is an interior designer and as such this iconic American classic presents in wonderful condition. Having purchased the ‘van as a restoration project, he set about removing the body and repairing the chassis as required, together with overhauling the brakes. The interior was completely stripped, repaired where necessary, insulated and started to be reassembled. He then set about using his contacts to supply the best quality materials resulting in an Airstream of the highest quality and with superb design features. A refurbished Paul Metalcraft kitchen was fitted together with a Husky fridge, electric water pump, hot water and walnut worktops all resulting in an authentic 50’s feel. A double bed is fitted which can be enclosed if required. At the other end of the Airstream a new toilet and shower/wet room was fitted, the walls having previously been treated to ensure suitable waterproofing. The effect of all this work has created a minimalistic feel combined with a retro, contemporary design. Viewing of this stunning Airstream is highly recommend, it really does take glamping to a different level.

Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II

Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II

Lot # 65416 (Sale Order: 21 of 38)

When the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow was released to the public in October 1965, the development departments were showing the result of work carried out over a period of some ten years. The new series was characterised by surprisingly modern features and, with their development, Rolls-Royce broke new ground and away from many sacred design principles. The new models were technically striking in three ways; a monocoque chassis was used, all wheels were sprung independently and four-wheel disc brakes now ensured stopping power of the kind expected in a modern car. Under the bonnet, the V8 engine which had been introduced in the Silver Cloud series was employed. In February 1977, the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II was introduced. Outwardly, the models were identifiable by bumpers with rubber inserts and edges made from polyurethane. The Silver Shadow Long Wheelbase was renamed the Silver Wraith in 1976 and a total of 2,135 examples were manufactured. In addition to the additional legroom, the Silver Wraith was identifiable by a smaller rear window, Everflex roof and different wheel covers.This 1980 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II (without division) was purchased by the vendor in 1999 to join his expanding fleet of wedding hire cars. When he acquired the car she had covered 138,843 miles and has only covered an average of 400 miles per year up to 2010 when it was placed in storage only brought out a couple of times and MoT’d. Since 1999 this Silver Wraith II has been regularly maintained by Rolls-Royce specialists Hofmanns of Henley. In 2004/5 the odometer in the speedo stopped working at the current mileage, finished in Midnight Blue with black Everflex roof and cream Connolly hide interior this Rolls-Royce is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in January 2019 and a file containing the old registration documents, invoices from Hofmanns of Henley and old MoT certificates going back to 1999. The Silver Wraith II is the same as the Silver Shadow with the benefit of the extra leg room to the rear compartment, this delightful Rolls-Royce offers enormous luxury for a modest outlay.

Pontiac Firebird SE

Pontiac Firebird SE

Lot # 65420 (Sale Order: 22 of 38)

The Firebird was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors between 1967 and 2002. Introduced in the same year as its platform-sharing cousin the Chevrolet Camaro, the Firebird was seen as a long term competitor to the successful Ford Mustang. The fourth generation Firebird amplified the aerodynamic styling initiated by the previous generation; while the floorpan remained largely the same, ninety percent of the Firebird's parts were all new. Major improvements included standard dual airbags, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, 16 inch wheels, rack-and-pinion power steering and several non-rusting composite body panels. Throughout its fourth generation, trim levels included V6-powered Firebird, and V8-powered Formula and Trans Am.This unique Pontiac Firebird Exhibition S.E. (Special Edition) 3.4 litre, V6 was built at the St. Therese, Oshawa, Canada production plant on 1st February 1995 and was exported to the UK on 26th September 1995 to the Technology Centre of Pilkington PLC, Lancashire with a total cost of £16,892.35. Pilkington Glass manufactured the glass for GM cars and this display Pontiac was to showcase its E-Z Kool solar control glass at their Technology Centre; glass which had been introduced at the GM Ohio plant for the 1990 Corvette ZR-1 and which radically reduces UV filtration.Displayed on a ramp at Pilkington for 12 years, the Firebird was sold in 2009 to a motor dealer in Sheffield with just 34 kilometres on the odometer. In 2013 our vendor purchased the car and duly registered it for UK roads. In our vendor’s tenure he has covered a mere 10,000 miles and as such the car has only ever required minor services. Unsurprisingly, this rare manual example was well spec'd for its show purpose and features air conditioning, ABS, electric seats/windows and mirrors, cruise control, and both driver and passenger airbags.Accompanying this Firebird is an MoT test certificate until January 2019, original owner's manual, the original E-Z Kool Ohio show plates from its time on the show stand, and a substantial history file which includes two glossy photos showing the car on its ramp in the Pilkington Technology Centre. A fantastic low mileage example of a car, still in original condition, with an interesting history that will appeal to both collectors and enthusiasts and anyone looking for an enjoyable driving experience.

Ford Model A Pick-up

Ford Model A Pick-up

Lot # 65433 (Sale Order: 23 of 38)

The Ford Model A was colloquially called the A-Model Ford or A-Bone among rodders and customisers and replaced the venerable Model T which had been produced for 18 years. This new Model A (a previous model had used the name in 1903-1904) was designated as a 1928 model and was available in four standard colours. By March 1930, Model A sales hit three million and there were nine body styles available. It was the first Ford to use the standard set of driver controls with conventional clutch and brake pedals, throttle and gearshift. The Model A's gravity fuel tank was located in the cowl, between the engine compartment's fire wall and the dash panel, and a rear view mirror was optional.This 1940 Ford Pick-up has been the subject of a total restoration and presents in superb condition. All the duties have been paid and she is registered in the UK and is supplied with a V5C registration document. The 239 cubic inch Ford Mercury engine has been bored out and is now an estimated 260 cubic inch and the transmission is a three-speed manual. Twin Stromberg carburettors sit proudly on this V8 engine and the exhaust system emits a superb noise, certainly commensurate with a big American V8. The performance is brisk and stopping is via a 1947 set of Ford drum brakes and a GM master cylinder. During the rebuild of this Ford Pick-up a Kwik wiring harness was fitted, together with an aluminium radiator to ensure adequate engine cooling. Sitting slightly lower at the front and with two inches chopped off the roof, aesthetically this is a very handsome Ford, the flat bed was shortened by 19 inches to keep the lines in proportion. The vendor is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic regarding such cars as well as being exceedingly fastidious. This rare Ford Model A Pick-up is of the highest quality.

Mercedes-Benz 190c Fintail

Mercedes-Benz 190c Fintail

Lot # 65449 (Sale Order: 24 of 38)

We are delighted to present this 1965 first series (1961 – 1965), Mercedes-Benz 190c Heckflosse, or Fintail as it is commonly known. The prominent white coachwork, with its elegant fins and curvaceous bonnet, is in very good order and is complemented by the contrasting red and stylish M-B Tex interior, noted for its comfort and durability, and featuring a vertically designed odometer on the dashboard. In the rear, the occupants also benefit from the additional seat belts; an important safety factor today. On a recent test, the Fintail’s 1897cc four-cylinder petrol engine pulled well with gear changes transmitted through the automatic gearbox whilst the brakes, with discs at the front and drums at the rear, drew the Mercedes to a reassuring halt. This is a righthand drive example that was first registered in Copthorne, Sussex on 6th April 1965, to a Mr Herbert Victor White as noted upon the original log book. The accompanying history file includes records of recent works totalling in the region of £7,500, the original green log book, old MoT test certificates, a current MoT test certificate valid until 30th August 1018, a UK V5 registration document, letters of correspondence and a copy of a recent article featuring this 190c in Classic Mercedes Magazine.  These classic Mercedes-Benz motor cars are now being recognised in a market where it is becoming ever more difficult to find good examples of a marque at reasonable prices. With comfort and space, especially in view of the enormous boot space, commanding grill and acres of brightwork, we are sure that this Fintail will find a lucky new owner to enjoy the classic Mercedes-Benz experience and ideal for Goodwood (picnic hamper not included).

Porsche 911/964 RS Lightweight

Porsche 911/964 RS Lightweight

Lot # 65463 (Sale Order: 25 of 38)

Representing a major step forward in the development of Porsche's 911, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 2 ('Type 964' in factory parlance) had been launched in 1989, the former marking the first time that four-wheel drive had been seen on a series-production model. Boasting a drag coefficient of just 0.32 thanks to its deeper bumpers, smoother sills and flatter floorpan, high-speed stability was maintained by a self-deploying rear spoiler.Face-lifted but retaining that familiar shape, the newcomers had been given a more extensive work-over mechanically, 87% of parts being claimed as entirely new. The Carrera 2 and 4 shared the same 3.6-litre flat-six engine, while power-assisted steering (another 911 'first'), anti-lock brakes and a five-speed manual transmission were standard on both, with the Tiptronic auto 'box a Carrera 2-only option. In 1992, Porsche produced a lightweight, rear-wheel-drive only version of the 964 dubbed Carrera RS for the European market. It featured a revised version of the standard engine, titled M64/03 internally, with an increased power output of 260 bhp and lightweight flywheel coupled to the G50/10 transmission with closer ratios, asymmetrical Limited Slip Differential and steel synchromesh. The Carrera RS is approximately 345 pounds lighter than the U.S. version Carrera 2 model.Originally registered on 25th March 1992, the vendor purchased the car six months later from AFN Guildford; at that point the car had covered 2,700 miles. This outstanding car has been exceedingly well cared for, living in a de-humidified garage and never used in inclement weather. The car is one of only 70 righthand drive lightweights manufactured by Porsche and one of only 40 sold in the UK. Presented in original condition, with the exception of a sports exhaust, this 964 RSL is unmarked and must be unique given the low mileage and one owner since September 1992. The highly knowledgeable and fastidious vendor has maintained the car extremely well; the original service books are supplied and are well stamped. The mileage of 17,822 is warranted and confirmed by every MoT certificate in the history folder. The J7 RSL registration plate is distinctive and was the original number plate the car was registered on. This RSL can only be described as the best example available anywhere and interested parties are advised to view the car in person to fully appreciate the magnificent quality of this outstanding Porsche.
