  • This is the second outstanding DB7 I've had for sale in recent months. The first, a RHD Coupe, now resides happily in southern France, whilst this example, a stunning low mileage LHD DB7 i6 Volante has arrived via the Balearic Islands. Delivered new to its first owner by Aston Martin Palm Beach in May 1997, it certainly led a pampered life as was shuttled by covered transporter between homes in the Carolina's and Florida with meagre use at either location but with all the service work being attended ...

  • This exemplary 1970 Porsche 911 offered here is one of the rare C-programme models with the 2.2-Litre engine, of which only 1,744 were produced. It was the most powerful of the trio of models available at the time, courtesy of its engine capacity being increased to 2195cc, plus re-profiled camshafts, larger valves and Bosch fuel injection, power rose to an impressive 180 bhp. Further mechanically enhancements saw the fitment of a larger clutch, special gear ratios and beefed up ventilated brakes, ...

  • A lovely home market Jaguar XK120 Roadster that left the factory in January 1950 destined for Jaguar dealers, ‘Rossleigh of Inverness’, who interestingly, were amongst the very first appointed official Jaguar agents. It is also worthy of note that only 1,170 RHD XK 120 OTS’s (Roadsters) were built as opposed to over 6,436 LHD cars. This Jaguar is a well-known OTS having passed through some distinguished hands in the past and had already benefited from an all-synchro gearbox with overdrive ...

  • *NOW SOLD*....another similar vehicle in the pipeline, so do please call me on 07788 865700. Picture a public house back Chelsea in 1963, somewhat different from today’s normal bistro type affair, a place just to drink and chat over a good ale and no doubt a few smokes too! It was in one such establishment some 56 years ago, actually the Admiral Codrington in Mossop Street, after a brief ‘how do’ and some further mumbled pleasantries with a fellow drinker, albeit only a few as the other ...

  • A very elegant and desirable original UK RHD XK150 3.4 OTS finished in midnight blue with a beautifully contrasting mulberry leather interior, along with a dark blue mohair hood. Just 93 RHD cars left the factory, so a rare commodity indeed and especially so when as good as this and taking into account the factory fitted manual overdrive too. The current owner is a certified Jaguar 'nut' and I've had the pleasure of handling the sale of a number of his exceptional Jaguars previously. Interestingly, ...

  • This Jaguar XK150 3.8 SE Fixed Head Coupe (FHC) is an original UK right hand drive car that was dispatched in February 1960 to the Jaguar main dealer, Henleys of London, and sold to its first keeper later the same month. Since then, there have been just five further changes of ownership. The Jaguar Heritage certificate on file confirms it was finished in Cotswold blue with dark blue hide, and pleasingly all remains matching and as originally built. The fourth owner, a collector known to me, ...

  • The Austin Healey was conceived from the unlikely alliance between Donald Healey's tiny operation in Warwick and the vast Austin Motor Company based at Longbridge in Birmingham, run at the time by the forceful and characterful Leonard Lord, who had a single purpose in mind from this union, that of achieving a dominant position in the American export market, something it was to achieve brilliantly well. There is various commentary on this but written statistics indicate that as much as 80 per ...

  • A quite lovely Austin Seven Ulster that has been built to a very high trials specification by Steve Hodgson of the highly renowned SMH Services, actually his own car so way beyond the norm, insomuch, he's gone to town both on the engineering and mechanicals and has raided his 'special bits' box too, making it both highly competitive and desirable. Specification Chassis •Standard 1929 chassis, 2 wheel brakes •Shock absorbers all rebuilt with new discs and bushes, rear are ...

  • It's interesting to note that in 1971 Porsche manufactured just 1,430 of these D series 911 2.2S for the European market, compared to 1,590 of their mighty RS Carrera built during 1973...small numbers indeed. This lovely 2.2S was first registered in Spain on 16th June 1971, remaining there until it was purchased by a Swedish gentleman and exported to Stockholm and registered by him there in 2008. Subsequently shipped by the same owner to the UK in March 2009 into the care of renowned Porsche ...

  • FULL 580X Vantage Engine Specification by Aston Engineering. According to the AMOC, this Aston Martin V8 Series 3 is the only remaining car of a production of just six such V8's, still finished in its period 'Mandarin Yellow' livery. Secondly, it appears to be a rather rare crossover car; one of the very last S3's prior to the introduction of the Oscar India. Chassis 11802 thus left the factory with the full walnut dashboard and upgraded dash instrumentation of the later cars whilst retaining ...

  • An exemplary late 2004 model Aston Martin DB7 V12 Vantage Volante. No need to 'over the gild the lilly' here, so just the salient facts. Sold new by Stratstones of Wilmslow with the vehicle 'PDI' being carried out on 27th March 2004. Finished in the stunning special order colour of Berwick bronze with a perfect interior of chestnut leather and secondary tan inserts together with burr elm inlays and a dark brown roof. Just 28,300 miles from new in the hands of just 3 former keepers. Fastidiously ...

  • One of the prettiest small sporting Tourers the Riley Nine, when introduced in 1926, "marked a real advance in touring car design", so said that legendary motoring Historian, John Stanford. And he was right. Although the 4-cylinder engine was of only 1100cc capacity, it possessed performance which was equal to many cars in the 2-litre class of the period. It really was in many ways the forerunner of high efficiency small cars of the future decades. Indeed, the Nine remained a lynchpin of the ...

  • One of the last true Aston Martin thoroughbreds to be hand-built - no Mercedes Benz technology or turbo-charged engines to be found beneath the bonnet here, just a monstrously powerful 6 litre V12, thus making perhaps the Vanquish S the marque's ultimate Grand Tourer. This lovely 2 plus 2 example is presented in meteorite silver with a obsidian black full hide interior. Along with the high standard specification the current owner has added for ease, both front and rear (reversing) cameras plus ...

  • Delving into the Moke's design history, I had clean forgotten that Sir Alec Issigonis had been the brains behind the Moke too; he really was a brilliant and revolutionary designer as he used an identical engine, transmission and suspension parts to the Mini and as a result, it was really fun to drive. Contrary to one's thoughts and to a degree its appearance, it was only ever a factory assembled car built by BMC and British Leyland between 1964 and 1993, albeit latterly, they were assembled ...

  • Harry Metcalfe having driven this, actually his own 1980 XJS 5.3 V12 Coupe, used just two simple words, 'grace & pace', to describe his exciting 1000 miles journey down through France to the Cote d'Azur back in 2015! Pleasingly you can see his video of the drive down by searching for 'Jaguar XJS V12 drive to Monaco review' on YouTube. This superb XJS was delivered new by Lex Motors of Hudderfield to its first owner, Mr Carruthers in September 1980, who chose the solid exterior finish colour of ...

  • A fabulously fast and beautifully built Austin Seven Ulster replica by the extremely able Steve Hodgson of SMH Services - being such a fine example it's presence is often requested by both the Goodwood Members & Revival meets. Very much inline with the blue 'Trials' car, it's built to the highest quality specification using original parts where ever possible. In fact & remarkably in this case, it even has an original 10 stud engine and close ratio gearbox, both hugely valuable in their own right. If ...

  • One of Jaguar's most beguiling models of the model era, offering its trademark velvet-like ride, refinement and effortless performance. In fact it's as fast as you'll ever need in almost all situations courtesy of its 380bhp, 380lb ft 5.0-litre V8. A pleasure to have back this lovely Jaguar XK 5.0 Portfolio that I supplied some two years ago. I purchased it from the then owner, a Shell super tanker Captain up in Tyne & Wear, for a client who specifically wanted this lovely specification/colour. ...

  • This homage to a 427 was built by a superb 'old school' engineer over many years, commencing in the late 1980s. The mandate was to build the ultimate 427, to look externally indistinguishable from a genuine 427 but a car that was also great and safe to be driven hard in both dry and wet conditions. The resulting unique car benefits from superb handling, light steering and modern brakes. Aluminium body fabricator guru, Les Monk, created the hand built rolled body - he was actually one ...

  • SOLD It's become difficult to find really good examples of Porsche's 944 nowadays, most are simply just average in both body and mechanics and have covered considerable mileage too. However, this particular face-lifted 944 certainly significantly raises the bar way above average on all three of these counts, plus, pleasingly, remains completely unmolested and has a first-class service history to boot! Remarkably this Porsche has been serviced on 30 occasions, plus its MOT records ...

  • I had the pleasure supplying this lovely Z3 2.2 automatic via the BMW main dealer, Barons of Hindhead to its first lady owner back in May 2001, the family at the time had been clients since the mid eighties and happily remain so to this day. During the intervening years it has covered just 9,400 miles and remains in near perfect condition having been evidently used very sparingly and to my knowledge, never in the rain. Ownership passed to her son some three years ago, thus just two owners ...

  • Sale Agreed The Porsche 912 Targa went into production during 1967 albeit with a soft plastic rear window, version 2 has the larger rear glass and came a year later and really only to quell safety concerns mainly in the US - infact this car is from 1969 and special in that it was the only year of the long-wheelbase model, and a glass rear window at this stage was compulsory. Chassis # 29010521 was dispatched from the factory in March 69 for California where it remained until it was brought ...

  • SALE AGREED Here's a paragraph or two from the indomitable LJK Setright's missive on Bristols written for CAR magazine back in the eighties. "Bristols have always been amply fast by the standards of the day without being in the front rank of the out-and-out speedsters; they have always been big enough to make travel elegant rather than indecorous; and have always had the handling qualities of a very high standard, usually up to the best sports car'. "Broadly speaking, therefore, they represent ...

  • NOW SOLD Supplied new in 1965 via the local BMC dealer, Gudge's of Farnham, this lovely original Mini 850 has remarkably remained in the same family for the last 55 years. A rather nice story here as it was purchased in 1965 as a 50th birthday present for the current owners mother and subsequently passed to her in 2003, so remarkably just two family keepers from new and hasn't strayed more than a mile or so from where it was first registered whilst covering just over 77,000 miles in the intervening ...

  • Another special Mini just released from long term ownership, this time a rather splendid 1971 Mk 3 Cooper S finished in Flame red with blue vinyl interior. This home market Cooper S was purchased by the last keeper back in 1994, and then almost immediately was given to the renowned Mini engine tuners Richard Longman for both an engine upgrade and gearbox rebuild along with various other performance enhancements. In fact the accompanying invoice and spec sheets demonstrate it was turned to ...

  • A very handsome and thoroughly prepared Jaguar E Type 4.2 Series 1.5 OTS which was originally supplied via Jaguar main agents, Henlys Ltd of London on 27 June 1968. Certainly this is not your normal run of the mill 'E Type', as its been upgraded to fast road specification during a three year process when the car was dismantled, stripped back to the bare shell and all components checked to ensure the car was perfect, thus giving turn-key reliability. Although this work was completed in ...

  • NOW SOLD The 'SC' was the final incarnation of Porsches' 356 Coupe prior to the arrival of the 911. There were a number of small visible changes externally from the 356B T6, namely the model designation on the rear and slightly revised wheel and hubcaps, necessitated by the new upgraded disc brakes. The interior featured a slightly redesigned dashboard, including a long awaited proper functioning heater plus a much improved and practical outside fuel filler, but most significantly of all, ...

Little is know of its early movements until it appeared 14 years later in 1975 in Peter Mitchells famous photograph, 'Kingston Racing Motors, Sunday, Spring 1975, 4pm, Olinda Terrace, Leeds', now seemingly ...

  • NOW SOLD In the late 1930's the MG men from Nuffield were were eager to propagate their new family of MG's with a larger and smaller version of the SA. The smaller car, the VA, came first, halfway through 1937, whilst the the larger six cylinder WA didn't appear until the summer of 1938. The eye catching VA was based on the contemporary Wolseley Twelve, with a 1548cc four-cylinder engine, and was offered with similar four-seater body styles to this of the SA, in open tourer, saloon or drophead ...

  • Perhaps the best loved of the sporting Austins is the Ulster model although it was never referred to as this by the Works. It was in fact a nickname given to it by the public after a team of these gallant and endearing cars did so well in the arduous TT race in Ireland back in 1929. The factory produced a limited run of production sports models off the back of the TT success in Supercharged and un-supercharged form. Indeed, such was the limited nature of these desirable motor cars that innumerable ...

  • Due to its' hybrid nature, there is no such thing as a standard Triton, each machine having been built as a one-off special. As such, the term Triton covers a wide-ranging variety of both engine types and capacities as well as Norton's featherbed frame having been available in both narrow and wide variants. This particular Triton possesses the most desirable combination of Triumphs mighty T110 pre-unit engine married to the preferred narrow or 'slimline' featherbed Norton frame and is the ideal ...

  • Certainly like my Sunbeam S7, this Triumph Speed Twin 1961 500cc is very much a gentlemans motorcylce, having tremendous style and smooth modern lines but is sadly from an era where the motor car really started to significantly erode motorcycle sales. Many of the manufacturers in period produced machines with enclosed fairings and this design penned by the legendary Ed Turner and Jack Wickes, was fondly referred to as the 'Bathtub', as it was intended for the professional fellow who wanted to ...

  • That ring-ding-ding sound is unmistakable - the Yamaha RD350 was a 70's cult bike if there was ever one and certainly looks tiny by current standards because it is. That said, it happily accomodates my six-foot/ 17st frame and its nice flat bars and good seat make long rides and/or handling modern road conditions a cinch. They really are a little weapon too, with their two-stroke 347cc parallel twin producing 39 bhp at 7500 rpm, which translated in a sub 4 second 0-60 and 103mph top speed, they're ...

Used sparingly, covering under 4,000 miles in 2 years, nevertheless, was serviced on 3 separate occasions. The second lady owner purchased it from official Aston Martin dealers 'Lancaster of Sevenoaks in 1998. Covering just 5,000 miles over the next ten years, alternating between this and an equally impressive low ...

In the late 1990s Peter Wheeler began to formulate his dream to see TVR racing at Le Mans and thus began his program to build a CAD designed, carbon composite/space-frame car, with the ability to be stable at speeds in excess of 200MPH on the Mulsanne Straight.....from this race program was born TVR's ultimate road car: TYPHON. •The Typhon was indisputably TVR's most advanced car ever built •A revised and strengthened ...

Introduced in June 1967, it was of similar design and construction to the Elan, but a foot longer and seven inches wider, whilst the overall length was stretched by nearly two feet, all really to accommodate an extra pair of rear bucket seats, making it a substantially better all round GT.

First registered March 1988, its evidently been cherished. The body has original panels and factory panel gaps, the Venetian Blue (L36P) metallic paintwork is immaculate whilst the navy Porsche logo fabric interior is near faultless and in unmarked ...

Pleasingly with a single stoke of a pen Schutz authorised the production to continue and was noted as saying later, "The Porsche 911, the company icon, ...

Dispatched by Aston Martin Works on July 5th 1963, the accompanying factory build records and Heritage Certificate confirm chassis 1049/R as being the second to last DB4 Saloon produced. Delivered during the same month as the ...

  • An exceptional and unique opportunity to purchase the only Fletcher factory produced Ogle GT. Originally built by Norman Fletcher of Fletcher Boats fame in response to a French trade embargo in place at end of the 60's that prevented Fletcher exporting their boats to France, which at the time was their main market. Fletcher took the decision to branch out and begin manufacturing cars as an addition revenue stream to their more established business of producing glass fibre leisure boats, ie. their ...

This endearing model has proved its metal in various forms of competition time and time again. Examples have raced successfully at Le Mans, run in the Mille Miglia, won the Australian Gramd Prix and the B.R.D.C 500 mile Race at Brooklands from stiff opposition. The first products from Jaguar, Lotus, BMW, Datson and Lola ...

By audaciously squeezing in Giuseppe Busso's legendary designed 250 bhp 3.2 V6 unit into the 147's engine bay and adding an array of spoilers, intakes and 18' alloys, Alfa produced one of the best looking and sounding hot hatches of its era.....simply bellissimo!

Nothing changes once behind the wheel, sensations for the driver are chiefly the flood of noise, engine noise. Press on and the air-cooled engine's seductive rasp turns into a wail especially one's pushing on up to the 7200 rpm redline...for me and many others its simply intoxicating. Thus it’s so nice to have a brace of 911 2.2S's here ...

There are reams of invoices, MOTs and Registration Documents on file which help support the provenance of this vehicle. Although the owner of this MG has an enviable garage of classics, both the narrow footprint of the GT and versatility of its hatch back (given he's a horologist, thus easy to load his precious cargo) makes this ...

It was no slouch on the road either, as the combination of its lightweight, legendary balance and formidable power, helped establish the M3 in period as the ultimate driving machine and thus became the template that BMW has tried to emulate ever since....stark reality is that they have never quite managed to replicate the same magical DNA, with each successive M3's ...

  • Following the success of both the Griffith and Chimaera, TVR were keen to demonstrate their performance capability and credentials to the rest of the world. In a bold and audacious move, typical of Peter Wheeler at the time, the decision was taken to design and develop a completely new model to be powered by TVR's own entirely new engine, the 'AJP V8'. Intentionally radical from the outset, the new V8 bore little if anything in common with the previously employed versions of Rovers Buick ...
