  • With the values of cars like E36 M3s and Z3 M Coupes going through the roof, it’s becoming very difficult to find a modern classic performance BMW without paying a King's ransom. One exception does spring to mind, though: the ordinary Z3, specifically one with a six-cylinder engine. The very well cared for 2 litre example we offer has had just 7 owners from new. The last custodian owning the car for some five years. The car comes with a good service history and has covered just 80,000 miles from ...

  • 1959 was probably be one of the most revolutionary years for British Family motoring. It heralded the arrival of three fresh and exciting new models - the Mini, Triumph Herald and Ford Anglia 105E. The Mini and the Herald may gone on to sell the most cars and have the most bearing on the future car design and engineering but it was the Anglia that did more for the image of it's maker than any other car. The 1966 997cc Deluxe version we offer here has won numerous show awards over the past four ...

  • In early May 1958 BMC made a highly immodest announcement. ''Today the Austin Motor Company makes motoring history with the announcement of a completely new small and inexpensive sports car''. The Frogeye Sprite promised full size performance but was small enough for a young man to keep in his Dad's bike shed. At the same moment an advertising video featuring the great Roy Salvadori and up an coming TV Motor Sports commentator John Bolster at the home of British Motor Sport, Silverstone, had ...

  • The MG TD arrived in 1949, following on from the pre war successful TC, bringing with it some much needed post war refinements. The TD came with independent front suspension, a well located live rear axle, four wheel drum brakes and rack and pinion steering. The car had a wooden frame and was 5 inches wider than the pre war TC. A better handling car than than it's predecessors, the new car drew much praise from the contemporary press. Powered by the twin carb four cylinder XPAG 1,250cc, the 54 bhp ...

  • The Austin Healey Sprite MK III was a transition model between the MK II roadster and the MK 1V Sprites. The MK III had better weather equipment by way of roll up windows to replace the old flapping plastic side screens. The car still retained the same 1098 cc 'A' series engine. This 1965 registered example we offer here has only covered 6000 miles since a comprehensive nut and bolt rebuild by the last owner. The restoration included the replacement of all panels with British Motor Heritage parts, ...

  • Next to the Daimler XJ12 the XJ6 Coupe is the rarest of them all, identifiable from it's Jaguar sister by the addition of finer wood veneer and better Connelly leather this particular example was subject to a bare metal paint and restoration by a fastidious JEC member in the noughties. Offered in the desirable colour of Regency red with an oatmeal hide interior. The paintwork and chrome have a deep shine, the leather, whilst nicely aged looks totally in keeping with the car. Sold by us to last ...

  • At the time of it's introduction at the Earls Court Motor Show of 1967 the MGC GT was the most powerful Sports car to emerge from the MG plant at Abingdon. Powered by a new 3 litre six cylinder engine, this was a Grand Tourer in every sense of the phrase. From the announcement of the MGB in 1962, there was always meant to be a more powerful version and it was only a matter of time before a suitable bigger engine was developed and fitted into the MGB chassis and the MGC was born. The high spec ...

  • MG has built some gorgeous cars since it started in business in 1924. Arguably the best looking car of them all was the MGA, which ushered in a new era for the Abingdon based car company when it replaced the ancient T-Series in 1955. Sleek and beautiful, the MGA isn't the fastest sportscar around but it is superb to drive thanks to it's agility, lively performance, sweet gearchange and light steering. The splendid example we offer here was restored in the late 90s and has covered something like ...

  • In the early 60s the Rootes group’s brand new rival to BMC's Mini went against the latest trends of the time. When the square and boxy Hillman Imp was announced in 1963, its rear-engined design surprised many, although the engine itself was a joy. This all-alloy 875cc unit developed 37bhp in standard form and up to 51bhp in subsequent twin- carb guises, linked to a pretty slick four-speed manual gearbox. This 25,000 mile example we offer here was recently purchased from an avid collector of ...

  • The Singer Gazelle V was introduced in the August of 1963, following on from it's brother the Hillman Minx's design update. It had a newly designed body with larger doors and a 1592cc engine. It also acquired front disc brakes and an all synchromesh gearbox. According to the DVLA there are only 260 left running on UK roads. The quite remarkable example we offer here has what an antique dealer would call fantastic provenance having covered just 21,000 miles from new.The mileage is all documented ...

  • Announced in 1968 to replace the Anglia, the Escort soon became the UK's best selling car, with over two million sold by the time it was replaced by the MK II in 1975. With it's distinctive front grille and swept 'coke bottle' flanks, the Escort MKI perfectly captured the clean 60's look and was widely admired. Mechanically it was conventional but effective, with rear wheel drive, precise rack and pinion steering, MacPherson strut front suspension and a simple live rear mounted axle mounted on ...

  • The MGA Twin Cam was announced in 1957 and was the result of a lengthy develpment but disappointingly it returned one of the shortest production runs the the MG factory had ever seen. This certainly makes the car somewhat of a rarity with only 2111 cars produced between 1958 and early 1960.The twin cam was to utilise an engine that was never fitted to any other car and was developed from the B series engine.For ease of productio,economy and reliability the standard pushrod type of engines were used ...

  • Just in case you forgot, the MG TF arrived to remind us just what MG was all about: agile low cost sports cars with loads of character and almost universal appeal. The MG TF proved that MG could still build great little roadsters. Here we offer a top of the range MG TF 1.8cc 180 BHP example. First registered on 18th July 2003 and has had just 4 owners in 15 years. The car has covered just 53,000 miles from new, which is less than 4000 miles per year. The car comes with a very good history file ...

The particularly striking TR4 we offer here was totally restored in the late 90s and has covered just 21,000 miles since completion. The rebuild included a full engine rebuild by the highly respected TR specialists 'Revingnton TR'. At the time of the engine rebuild the unit was treated to an upgrade to a stage 2 ...

  • Ford introduced Mk II versions of its Consul, Zephyr and Zodiac cars in 1956, once again a convertible version was also available. The Mk II Zephyr used a new 2553cc six cylinder engine which came with a three speed gearbox, automatic transmission was available as an option. The Convertible Zephyr came with a power or a manually operated top. As before the top could be lowered in two stages, the first provided a "de-ville" position which looked very glamorous. As before with the Mk I cars, ...

  • Almost 60 years since the MGB was launched on to the British market, this handsome,classless, fun car still defines the British Sports car,as mistakably of these shores as the black cab,warm beer and summer rain. According to the British Motor Industry Heritage certificate, accompanying this particular MGB Roadster, the car was built at the Abingdon Plant on the 12th of October 1966 and dispatched to Appleyards of Bradford on the 14th of October the same year. The Heritage certificate also states ...

  • It is sometime since I had one of these glorious MGCs I just love love them. This is an MGB for grown ups. The MGC is fast,unstressed and addictive with the laziest of 6 cylinder engines. All for half the price of a big Healey. The example I offer here has a facinating story to tell. According to the car's heritage certificate the car was built 0n the 14th of July 1969 and has had just 5 owners from new. The history file contains a history trace from the DVLA listing every registered owner from ...
