  • A very stylish car, pillarless in construction (giving unimpeded access), Continental in design and bodied by Kellner of Paris. The car has benefitted from a great deal of restoration work in recent times, and now looks very smart, freshly painted in an attractive shade of dark green, complimented by a lighter green leather interior. The car runs well, drives nicely and is greatly enhanced by the fitting of overdrive, relaxing the engine at cruising speeds. We first owned this car in 1986, and it ...

  • An honest, unmolested and genuine example, sound, clean & correct, and we feel that the 99,000 miles on the clock is very likely genuine, although we cannot confirm this. We have recently re-commissioned the car, work which has included considerable attention to the braking system, full servicing, tuning and adjustments, following which it runs and drives particularly nicely, adding more weight to the probability of the mileage being correct. Comes with a history file which includes various invoices ...

  • Sold by us in 1994, and now returned from the same owner, this car has been well cared-for over that 26 year period, which represents a sizeable chunk of the car's life so far! Work carried out has included complete re-paint in two shades of green, all bright work re-chromed, new leather upholstery, new headlining and carpets, interior wood very smartly re-finished to a high standard, and the car has been fully re-wired. Desirable touches include excellent quality stainless steel windscreen frame ...

  • A pretty sports saloon, with a light appearance, finished in tasteful and attractive Duck Egg blue, with black wings, as well as black enamelled P100 ‘bullseye’ headlights, sidelights and PLG40 centre lamp. ‘Trouser crease’ wings, rear-mounted spare wheel and sliding sunroof all add to the car’s appeal. The interior is in deep red leather, which is in excellent condition, with woodwork in good order, although the headlining could do with replacing. Inside the boot lid is an impressive ...

  • This car is absolutely exceptional, being a rare James Young ‘finned rear wing’ design, and more importantly, having had a full, bare chassis up restoration in the 1990s, something like £80,000 having been spent on it, which of course represents a considerable amount more in today's money. Very nicely and appropriately painted in a lovely shade of deep blue with silver/grey upper parts and beautifully upholstered in beige leather, piped blue, complemented by fawn carpets and superb veneers. ...

  • A lovely example of a rare and desirable ‘M series’ Bentley. Of the two hundred of these chassis built, many were bodied by Park Ward, but this Hooper specimen is rare, unusual, handsome and in very fine order, beautifully finished in deep blue, which suits it particularly well, with excellent blue/grey leather, high quality headlining, carpets, etc, and overall looking gorgeous. The frontal aspect, with a superb set of lamps & horns finishes the look. The history file includes invoices from ...

  • A very well executed, handsome, barrel-sided tourer, bodied in the mid 1970s by Horsfields, very reminiscent of the sought-after Barker version of the 1920s. Sold by us in 2007 to enthusiastic husband & wife R.R.E.C. members, the car is now back with us from them, having been very well loved and cared for during this period. Work has included a full re-paint, re-upholstery in deep red leather, new carpets, 'double duck' hood, hood bag, tonneau cover and side screens, and re-finishing of dashboard. ...

  • An attractive saloon, of handsome proportions, with gently dropping waistline and sliding sunroof. The car is in clean and smart condition, finished in soft ivory to the side panels and boot, the remainder in black, including the waistline moulding and the full set of Ace wheel discs, all enhanced by its correct and impressive set of P100 headlights and long trumpet chrome horns. The two-way split boot lid incorporates two storage compartments for tools, and an inner lid, allowing a luggage trunk ...

    Wales
  • A lovely example of a rare and sought-after coachwork design, all the better for being a late S1 from the last year of production, incorporating the whole range of modifications introduced during the model’s four year run. Some say that a late S1 is the most desirable of the whole 'S' series production. Recently beautifully re-finished in a deep shade of inky blue, with top quality chrome plating, and the interior is equally lovely, with Parchment leather, piped blue and superb veneers, carpets ...

  • A desirable car in terms of configuration, being three-position with wind up windows, making it very versatile, converting from a spacious enclosed four/five seater to a Sedanca de Ville, to a fully open tourer, all with options for windows and division up or down, giving multiple variations. Interesting features include slim bumpers, horizontally and vertically divided windscreen, folding 'B' pillars and window pillars, 'Diver's helmet' rear lamps and a compact rear-mounted trunk. The car was delivered ...

  • SALE AGREED A handsome car, of razor edge design, nicely proportioned, and with attractive ‘trouser crease’ wings and letter box rear window. We understand that the car has been museum stored in California since 1968 - well over half of the car's life! There is still some American paperwork in the car's file. The coachwork is in good, sound condition, and although the paintwork has lost its shine and the car is somewhat mature cosmetically, is perfectly useable as is. The seats ...

  • A particularly fine example of the ‘Tickford’ cabriolet, a design which features a quick and easy, crank action roof mechanism, providing for one person operation. Even with the roof open, the design offers relatively draught-free, snug accommodation. Some years ago, the car belonged to Mike Berry, well known for his high quality pre-war cars, & is offered in excellent all round condition, with lovely paintwork, and very well-executed Connolly leather interior, and benefiting from an engine ...

    Wales
  • The very last R Type built! The car is in lovely condition, very smartly painted in black pearl and silver, with fresh and lovely light blue leather and carpets, accompanied by excellent headlining and nicely finished interior wood. Mechanically, the engine runs very smoothly and the car drives well. All of this adds up to a particularly appealing example, with the ‘last one built’ adding an extra edge. Offered serviced, prepared, fitted with a new set of radial tyres of a very appropriate ...

    Wales
  • A lovely example of the iconic fastback, which underwent a full ground up restoration in the 2000s, evidenced with photos showing the car stripped to a bare chassis frame. Since then, the car has had minimal use and is still excellent, even the underside being virtually spotless! At the same time as the restoration was carried out, the original engine was upgraded to 4.9 litre, the work being done correctly and impressively. The whole car, although having matured slightly and appealingly since the ...

  • Replacing the original Barker Cabriolet, although we are unsure who built by, this car is fitted with an extremely appropriate and very well-executed four door Tourer, which is of 'dual cowl' configuration. This allows for the second windscreen which is a fold-down arrangement with pivoting 'wings' serving the rear compartment, as well as adding rigidity to the body structure. Weather equipment includes full hood, side screens and tonneau cover and appealing features such as a lovely pillar-mounted ...

    Wales
  • A very appealing little car, in excellent condition and full of impish character. We understand the ‘Grand Luxe’ version with sunroof to be rare, and certainly letting in light and air is a desirable feature. In 1989, the car successfully completed the Italian Mille Miglia, finishing in 41st place, out of a field of 315 starters. This is confirmed and documented in a book on the subject which is included with the car. Much more recently, it competed in the 2015 Monte Pellegrino and the 2015 ...

  • A freshly completed, well executed VDP replica, with all new coach-work, built using a Tony Robinson frame, panelled in aluminium by McFarlane. As well as the body, paint, upholstery, windscreen, hood, tonneau cover, etc, and all aspects of the body being new, all bright work has been re-chromed and the car looks particularly attractive in its Burgundy livery with beige leather. Besides this, a great deal of restoration work has been carried out on the chassis and mechanical aspects of the car: ...

  • A very appealing, smart, correct and sound example in just the right condition to use & enjoy. Excellent paint work, in the original and very attractive shade of Dawn blue, complemented by high quality chrome plating. The original blue/grey leather interior is nicely presented, with no splits or tears, and indeed, the interior overall is very nice, with excellent headlining, carpets, etc, and the wood veneers are particularly fine. When new, as documented in the original sales details, the rear ...

    Wales
  • An unusual, very stylish and possibly unique open car, with an interesting and particularly handsome design, being relatively sleek, with spats to the rear wheels, twin side-mounted spare wheels, louvred bonnet & scuttle and ‘dropping’ waistline moulding, all complimented by a correct set of lamps and long trumpet horns. All six wheels are fitted with Ace wheel discs, which we feel suit the design nicely. The car has recently been fitted with a new cylinder head and is smartly presented under ...

  • This car is an excellent representation of the sought after Vanden Plas design of exactly the right period. The car was stripped to a bare chassis in the early 1990s, and through that decade was restored from bare chassis up to a high standard. Work included construction of a very well executed body, accurate and of high quality, painted and upholstered very nicely, full engine overhaul incorporating a new cylinder head, gearbox attention, installation of overdrive, new radiator, rewiring, all chrome ...

    Wales
  • A very striking car which incorporates various unusual and very appealing design features. Sporty in appearance, sharp and lovely in condition and running very well. One of the very first Derby Bentleys built, originally bodied by Park Ward, the current Barker body was built for a slightly later 3½ Litre in 1935, but transferred to this car in the 1950s. The car features very sleek wing design, shallow windscreen, some very attractive body mouldings and swage lines to the scuttle and bonnet (which ...

  • 1964 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III "Chinese Eye" 2dr Fixed Head Coupe A good, sound, correct and original example in lovely condition throughout, and driving beautifully, with excellent engine, gearbox, brakes, steering, etc. Everything about it just feels ‘right’. It would seem that the car has recently been with one family for about forty years (uncle & nephew), and we are inclined to think that the indicated 78,000 miles, may well be correct. It is not a pristine, restored and fresh car, ...

  • By the early post-war years, Sedanca de Villes were going out of fashion and not the most popular of designs, but this car is a delightful exception to the rule. The car is handsome, correct, original, nicely balanced in design and in good order. The car was delivered new to the USA, but found its way to Europe in 1959 where it was bought in Paris in 1960 by US Army Colonel Jack Babcock. The following year it returned with him to the states, remaining with him until he passed away in 2017 at the ...

    Wales
  • With one owner from 1993 to 2019, and hardly used during or since that period, this car is delightfully correct, undisturbed, sound and sharp and finished in a lovely special order colour scheme, subtly two toned as per the original build records in light green & grey/green. In certain lights the colour split is hardly noticeable, but in others distinctly different. The interior is gorgeous, being original red leather, beautifully matured, soft & supple, colour-faded in areas, in a rather charming ...

    Wales
  • A very early 20/25, one of the first series, and consequently very vintage in character, but at the same time with the extra performance over and above the 20hp, which is enhanced further by the fitting of an overdrive in recent years, creating a nicely relaxed cruising experience on longer runs. Delightful two door, four light body with sunroof and appealing touches such as side window vents, twin-blade quarter bumpers at the rear, quite sporting in appearance, and yet capable of carrying four ...

    Wales
  • A lovely example of the rare two door version of the desirable H.J. Mulliner Continental, in very good order, performing very well. The car is in smart, correct and very sound condition with excellent silver paintwork with a red pinstripe and appealing, original deep red leather upholstery. Woodwork and chrome are in nice condition too and the whole car is very well presented and just right to use and enjoy. We sold the car about eighteen years ago and it has remained in the same ownership for most ...

    Wales
  • An excellent example of a rare specification two litre, five speed, four seat version, with various factory options, including aluminium body, wooden dash and steering wheel, leather upholstery, etc. The car has been well cared-for by the owner of the last six years and prior to that a high quality bare metal re-spray was carried out, along with various attention besides, including stage two cylinder head conversion. We have a file of history which includes a considerable amount of invoices, documenting ...

    Wales
  • SALE AGREED A handsome, well-proportioned sports saloon in need of attention. The car was with one owner from 1959 until 2016, during which time it suffered from some deterioration of the coachwork structure. Work has been started, including replacement of some of the ash framework, but there is more to do. However, prior to this work commencing, the car was in regular use, and we therefore know it to be in very good running order, driving nicely and performing reliably. The blue/grey ...

    Wales
  • SALE AGREED A smart, sound and correct example, very nicely finished in an attractive shade of deep red with appealing, original beige leather and excellent, recent headlining and carpets. Included in the file accompanying the car are various maintenance invoices, including evidence of a comprehensive engine overhaul in 2004, carried out by Norman Woolfenden, who we hold in high regard. Since then, the car has only covered about 5,000 miles, and is consequently running very well. Was ...
