  • 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Supercharged Super Sport Spider by Zagato Reg. no. JYH 98 Chassis no. 0312931 The launch of the Alfa Romeo 6C in 1925 – with full production actually starting in 1927 – marked a key moment in the development of this iconic manufacturer – and it could be argued, in the development of the modern concept of the sports car. Replacing the impressive but somewhat upright and heavy RL series of sporting cars, the new 6C represented a major change in direction – the new ...

  • Lot 2131 1962 Morris Mini Pickup - 36,000 miles from new. Reg. no. 4142 MW It is rare to find one barn-find condition Mini, but we are fortunate to be offering two in this sale. 4142 MW is a highly original example of the rarely seen Mini pickup, and the owner has known the vehicle all his life; he can therefore confirm that the low mileage of 36,000 is correct. We understand that the pickup was driven into the barn in 1989 and it has not been touched since. Sadly any documentation has been ...

  • 1964 Triumph TR4 Sports Reg. no. LKK 194B Chassis no. CT/38917-LO Engine no. CT/39392-E The TR4 was based on the chassis and drivetrain of the previous TR sports cars, but with a modern body designed by Michelotti; as 40,253 cars were built during its production years, it proved to be very successful. The new TR4 body style did away with the cutaway door design to allow for wind-up windows and the angular rear allowed an unusually large boot space. This LHD TR4 was exported when new to California ...

  • 1961 Alvis TD21 Sports Saloon by Park Ward Reg. no. 607 BRY Chassis no. 26563 Engine no. 26563 In late 1955 at the Paris Motor show, Alvis launched its first car styled by the Swiss distributor and coachbuilder Graber. Based on the TC21 Grey Lady chassis, the resulting car was much more modern and sleek in its appearance and was designated TC108G. This car set the style for Alvis cars until the end of production in 1967. A small number of TC108Gs were built for Alvis using the Graber design ...

  • 1933 Sunbeam Model 8 350cc Reg. no. ABH 760 Frame no. C9403 Engine no. KK4219 Sunbeam’s touring 350cc Model 8 had been rested from the catalogue list in 1931 and 1932 but reappeared for 1933, virtually unchanged from the earlier specification. It was powered by a vertical, single-cylinder, overhead-valve engine, with a bore and stroke of 70 x 90mm. It was part of a range of eight machines offered by Sunbeam that year.

Unknown The Sunbeam Talbot 90 range, comprising of the sports saloon and convertible, was introduced by Rootes in 1948. Well-received by the motoring press, with particular praise being given to its styling, it was updated to the Mk. II version in 1950. This included an increase in the capacity of the 4-cylinder engine to 2267cc, helping achieve a raise in power from 64 to 70bhp. Coupled with relatively light weight, ...

The single overhead camshaft, four-cylinder, 848cc engine was a design subsequently employed by the marque for their successful trials and Le Mans sports cars in the 1930s. Capable of up to 46mpg and costing £129, a Junior represented excellent value for money, so much so that the majority of the 100 ...

Production of Austin motorcars subsequently began in 1907, and by the start of the Great War the company had acquired a deserved reputation for quality.

  • 898 AD rolled off the production line on the 12th of January 1960 and was then registered on the 3rd March that same year. The original build details were obtained from the 'Sequence Room' by the owner when he worked at Longbridge in 1965. Some years ago the car was partly dismantled as preparation for restoration, but lack of time meant that this never progressed. 898 AD is a rare commodity, being made within the first twelve months of Mini production, and never having been restored. Now at 53 ...

  • This Austin 7 was registered in May 1924 and it has the distinctive early features of a scooped out scuttle and a pram hood, the combination of which make this a sought after car. The car's early history is unknown, although there is a Pathe News clip of it taking part in a vintage car rally in Chippenham, in 1959 (Google NX5933), but soon after it was exported to Canada. The current owner inherited the car three years ago from his late brother who had bought it following its importation back to ...

  • 1937 Rudge Sports Special 500cc Reg. no. 959 UXT Frame no. 58225 Engine no. 55658 Rudge-Whitworth was a well established bicycle manufacturer that started motorcycle production in 1911, with a 500cc single. In the 1920s their bikes had a lot of success on the track which fuelled the production of factory raced 250cc, 350cc and 500cc machines. This led to them having a very successful works race team, with wins in the TT, Grand Prix and Ulster races. In early 1930, production racers stopped and ...

  • 1934 Morris 10/4 Saloon Reg. no. BPL 905 Chassis no. 41780 Engine no. 36662 Like their rivals Austin, Morris knew that the 10hp sector of the market was vital, and for 1933 they introduced a very good car that sat very neatly between the smaller 8 and the larger models. It was such a good design that it continued with variants until October 1948. At less than £170 the car was affordable for the masses yet large enough to transport whole families for their holidays, at a time where travel was ...

M/A255D-1229637M Engine no. 10MAUH333559 Launched in 1948, production of the Morris Minor was initially heavily weighted in favour of export markets, with British car makers of the ‘export or die’ post-war years desperate for foreign currency. The design, by Alec Issigonis, was the first example of his philosophy of increasing interior space while decreasing exterior dimensions and improving roadholding. It was an advanced design ...

  • 1928 Willys-Knight Model 70A Weymann Saloon Reg. no. UO 6985 Chassis no. 62164 Engine no. 66419 John Willys took over Overland in 1908, and within two years the inexpensive cars were selling at a rate only exceeded by the Ford Model T. In 1912, Willys decided to try to move upmarket and the result, in 1914 was the introduction of Knight-patent sleeve-valve engines. These engines had found favour in Europe with such names as Daimler, Minerva and Panhard-Levassor, as they were much smoother and ...

  • c. 1922 Austin 20/4 Truck Reg. no. NX 103 Chassis no. t.b.a. Engine no. t.b.a. Herbert Austin loved building big cars and it is well documented that the Austin 20's design originated from a Hudson, which Herbert had ridden around in whilst in the USA. Austin's one model policy in a war-weary Edwardian Britain didn't prove successful, and although the 20 was a great car, the war had changed the world and big expensive cars, often chauffeur driven, were just not what was required. As early as ...

WPOZZ92ZGN402884W Engine no. 43G09951 Launched in 1976 to replace the 914, the Porsche 924 was something of a break with tradition for the Stuttgart company, as it was both front-engined and water-cooled. Designed by Harm Lagaay – later responsible for the ahead-of-its-time BMW Z1 it was very much in keeping with the design fashions of the mid-70s, with its wedge shape and the obligatory pop-up headlights. For 1986 an updated version, the ...

  • 1965 Humber Sceptre Reg. no. KBH 700C Chassis no. B312064160DHSO Engine no. B3305111HHO The Humber Sceptre was introduced in 1963, two years after the Hillman Super Minx on which it was based. Also sharing much in common with the Singer Vogue, the Sceptre differed from these cars in that Rootes’ designers gave it a different roof and different rear bodywork, giving the car a sleeker look than its stablemates. Originally this design had been intended to replace the Sunbeam Rapier, hence the ...

JT1635W2000058588 Engine no. 359160051 Introduced in 1984, Toyota’s mid-engined, rear wheel drive MR2 was designed with input from Lotus engineers – and the British company’s philosophy was clear to see in the resulting car, the emphasis being on light weight and excellent handling. In 1989 a second generation arrived, offering a more rounded appearance in readiness for the 1990s, as well as a more luxurious interior, although importantly, ...

In 1953, Morris introduced commercial variants of its hugely successful Minor; these cars differed from their passenger-bearing siblings by their use of a separate chassis instead of semi-monocoque construction. The commercials were the last Minors to go out of production, in 1972, and remained a common sight for quite some years after that. This original 1968 pick-up with tilt bars was last on ...

The S-Type Jaguar was introduced in 1963 to fill a gap – if someone wanted a more luxurious car than a Mark II, but didn’t want to stretch all the way to the larger and more expensive Mark X; Jaguar hoped the new model would be just the car for the job. Using a scaled-down version of the sophisticated independent rear suspension from the Mark X, installed on what was essentially a slightly redesigned and more luxurious ...

However, the Elan proved to be more durable and much easier to produce, while staying true to Colin ...
