HERE we have a really lovely example of a Rootes Group model that has become increasingly difficult to source in recent years, the Singer Vogue. This is a 1965 Series III which means that it was treated to a 1600cc engine with alloy head, upping its umph from 66 bhp to a whopping 84 bhp! The model also came with disc brakes and all the up-market trim goodies so typical of the Rootes brand.

She still carries her original colour of Metallic Chestnut and is as sound a Vogue as you are likely to come across anywhere. I am told that she was dry stored for quite a number of years before being acquired by an enthusiast 18 months ago. During that time, he totally transformed the old girl bringing her up to the standard we see today.

She underwent a complete engine and gearbox rebuild and now feels incredibly tight and responsive. An absolute joy to drive. Her interior is delightful with the seats in tip-top condition. The wooden dash area and door cappings are just as impressive, and she has been fitted with a new set of tailored carpets.

Her underside is in truly remarkable condition with no evidence of any nasties or patches. In fact, it will doubtless surprise you as 1960s cars are rarely as straight and clean as this underneath. A special, professional protective coating was used and mixed with body colour. So don't expect any of the usual black waxoyl stuff!

I would imagine that her speedo reading of 56,000 is probably correct. Body-wise, she is an exceptionally straight and un-molested classic and the bulk of her metallic paint work is good. There's evidence of some blebbing to the paint on the bottoms of doors but nothing more serious than you would have expected to have found on a three-year-old vehicle back in the 60s. There's an area towards the top of the boot lid where some small white specks have appeared. All in all, these areas I mention do not amount to much. She remains an extremely attractive, straight and solid example.

All my classic cars are treated as the equivalent of motoring antiques. This one, for example, is 55-years-old. They cannot be compared to the wife's six-month-old Chelsea tractor and they are bound to come with imperfections, quirks and bits and pieces that will need attention even if it is some time in the future. They do however come with oodles of charm, appeal and are there to be loved like a family pet. If you are new to the classic car scene, then please bear all this in mind. Most examples have clearly had work over the decades and I cannot predict how much or how little they will need in the future. That, I am afraid, is the nature of the beast in the world of classic cars. Motoring antiques is what they are. I love my Georgian dining table, but I can see all the scars and signs of previous woodworm. Had I wanted a brand new table, I would have gone to Oak Furniture Land. Well perhaps. Demand is outstripping supply these days and they don't make the old girls any more. So, make some allowances and drive away with a smile on your face. It goes with the territory, and therefore must be accepted, that they are always going to need on-going care, attention and repair. Don't tell me some way down the line that the full beam doesn't work or that you have discovered something I knew nothing about. They are bloody old. It happens. They come in and they go out. It seems as though I have become a "re-homer" of classic cars.
I accept all major debit cards and a ten per cent deposit is required at the point of sale with the balance due within three days. I can also assist with delivery and so please ask for a quote. Thanks for reading, Martin. the details below).
