Affectionately known as the T-Bird, the 1965 Ford Thunderbird was the fourth generation, its re-styling boasting a more square appearance but still retained a similar look to the previous generation with a comparable grill design and twin headlights. The 300 bhp V8 was mated to a three speed automatic transmission and disc brakes were added at the front. Sequential indicators resulted in the individual segments of the rear lights flashing from inside to out. Three versions were offered, hardtop, convertible and Landau. This 1965 Ford Thunderbird Landau was imported into the UK from the USA in circa 1991 and was UK registered on 20th July 1991. This T-Bird is powered by the Ford V8 power plant of 390 cubic inch (6400cc) and fuelled by a Holly carburettor. On a recent test, the Thunderbird drove well and certainly had a presence about it, the vendor informing us that it attracts a positive reaction wherever it goes. A workshop manual accompanies the Thunderbird as well as an MoT test certificate valid until January 2017. This T-Bird is largely original and un-molested and awaits a new owner/enthusiast to enjoy.
The production car changed little from the prototype, although the full-width rear bumper was dropped in favour of two part-bumpers curving round each corner, with overriders. Mechanics were basically stock Herald with the notable addition of front disc brakes. The engine was an 1,147cc four-cylinder with a pushrod OHV cylinder head and two valves per cylinder, mildly tuned for the Spitfire, fed by twin SU carburettors. Also from the Herald, came the rack and pinion steering and coil-and-wishbone front suspension, and at the rear, a single transverse-leaf swing axle arrangement. The body was bolted to a much-modified Herald chassis, the outer rails and the rear outriggers having been removed; little of the original Herald chassis design was left and the Spitfire used structural outer sills to stiffen its body tub. For 1964, an overdrive option was added to the four-speed manual gearbox to give more relaxed cruising. Wire wheels and a hard top were also available. In March 1965, the Spitfire Mk. II was launched. It was very similar to the Mk. I but featured a more highly tuned engine, through a revised camshaft design, a water-cooled intake manifold, and tubular exhaust manifold, in

The Bristol 408 was made between 1963 and 1966 and unusually for Bristol; a slightly revised version was launched during the middle of the model's production run in 1965 and known as the 408 Mark II. Mechanically, the Bristol 408 was identical to its predecessor the 407, which had been a major departure for Bristol with its use of a Chrysler V8 engine and automatic transmission. However, outwardly there were some major changes. The frontal styling of the 407 - which had been a carry-over from the six-cylinder 406 and 405 - was discarded and in its place was a rectangular grille with pronounced horizontal bars. Another major change was the turn indicator lamps, which on the 408 were wide and rectangular in contrast to the 407's round lamps. Due to safety concerns, the push-button layout of the automatic transmission was modified through the use of a safety lever to prevent an unwary person moving the car out of "Park". There were also rectangular instead of circular push-buttons for the gear selector in this version of the car. The transmission itself was now of cast alloy and was over 30 kilograms lighter than that of previous eight-cylinder Bristol's. The engine of the 407 and ori
Think of a pure out-and-out American pony car, designed to bring out the youth in everyone, powering you and your girl west down Route 66 and you could well have a Mustang coupé in your mind. The best-selling Mustang variant of all time with just 249 short of half a million rolling off Ford's production lines. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on 9th March 1964 and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on 17th April 1964. It was, and remains, one of the most successful product launches in automotive history. The Mustang sold over one million units in its first 18 months on the market and its legend lives on with revised models still in production today after 50 years. With each revision, the Mustang saw an increase in overall dimensions and in engine power. Now could be the time to ignite your youth again as the new owner of this cool blue example. Supplied in good, solid order throughout, the vendor describes it as, "sound", with a good interior and a strong and reliable 289c.i. engine. Benefitting from a full one year MoT test certificate, this handsome example comes with a UK V5C registration document, represents
This DB6 saloon was initially registered in November 1967, the first registered keeper being a John (Johnny) Ireland from Wolverhampton, Industrialist and Chairman of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club! It was then sold to Scottish Motor Services in Glasgow in 1986 and then to a Mr Cleanthi of Coulsdon Surrey in 1995. The car was purchased by the last keeper in 2001 with the intention of converting it to Rally spec to compete in the 2003 Arctic Rally. The 'no expense spared' conversion was carried out by Desmond J Smail from 2002 to 2003. Desmond was so confident in the quality of his work that he accompanied the owner on the rally himself!! This car has since successfully competed in many other rallies from 2003 to 2009 as follows: 15th Classic Pamplona, 15th Winter Monte Carlo, 2nd Emerald Isle, 16th Winter Monte Carlo, 3rd Emerald Isle, 17th Winter San Remo, 4th Emerald Isle, Rally of the Tests, Rome Liege, 20th Classic Cortina. For all these events it has been maintained and prepared by Desmond J Smail. Some of the main rally preparation includes the following. 4.2 Cosworth spec engine conversion, motor sport suspension front and rear, motor sport brakes front and rear, Spar
The DB6 was the final evolution of the Aston Martin that had started with the introduction of the DB4 back in 1958. Launched in 1965, it departed from that evolutionary path to a far greater degree than its predecessor the DB5. The ‘Superleggera’ principle of body construction was largely done away with in favour of more traditional methods with a resultant weight saving. The wheelbase was increased by 4” which gave the cabin more room and for the first time the car became a true four seater! There were also marked styling differences over the DB5, in particular the rear three-quarter windows which recall the DB4 GT Zagato and the ‘Kamm’ inspired tail, reflecting the Project 214 race cars, which greatly improved the DB6’s straight line stability. The DB6 also had the best version yet of the Marek 4.0 litre 6 cylinder unit with improvements in Vantage form to develop a power output of 325 bhp. With the increase in wheel base and improvements to rear suspension and engine development the DB6 was considered the best Aston yet to drive and as such continued to be produced until 1970 by which time the DBS production was well under way. This DB6 Vantage was originally registered in March
This DB6 Vantage is 1 of only 37 original LHD Vantage specification DB6 produced by the factory. Delivered new in France in its original colour scheme of Platinum with Dark Blue Connolly and factory extras of, Vantage engine, limited slip diff, chrome wheels, heated rear screen, 3 ear hub caps and power aerial. The matching numbers DB6 Vantage was first registered through French Aston Martin agent Garage Mirabeau to the wife of well-known French singer Richard Anthony. Apparently she was driving a Ferrari 250 Lusso, but the Aston was new machinery and en vogue in comparison. It was kept in their ownership and registered in Paris until 1971 when it was sold to Mr. Franck Fernandel, also a Paris resident. Only two weeks after its purchase by Mr. Fernandel, it was once again sold to Mr. Daniel Leroy another Paris resident. Later in the same year, it was once again sold to another Parisian Mr. Jean Michel. In 1974, the DB6 moved South to Montpellier and new ownership. In the 1980’s it moved North once again to Mulhouse having been purchased by a Mr. Marx. In the early 1990’s, the DB6 was fully restored, both cosmetically and mechanically with photographic documentation by the Ferrari g
The term 'Volante', denoting convertible versions of Aston Martin, was first introduced at the London Motor Show in 1965 when the DB6 was announced, but it wasn't until the same show in 1966 that the DB6 Volante was first displayed.

Aston Martin DB6 Mk II Vantage Coupé (1970) 5 Speed ZF Gearbox: Correct Matching Numbers Chassis No. DBMK2 /4152 /R Engine No. 400/4419/VC 1 of only 46 Cars Produced: Only 58,086m from New! Long Term Previous Ownership, 38 Years! The final production series for the DB6 being the “Mk II” was the swan song of the DB variants produced by Newport Pagnell. The specification shared many parts with the DBS such as the wheels and tyres, hubs and seats so as to help to minimise costs, the wider tyres are accommodated by slight flares over the wheel arches. The DB6 differed from its predecessors in having a longer wheelbase which, at 8′ 5¾”, was 3¾” longer than that of the DB5. This meant more room for rear passengers, which made the DB6 more of a family man’s car and helped it sell better than the earlier models in the series. The bodywork was distinctive, with a slightly higher roofline than the DB4 and DB5, and featured an aerodynamically efficient abbreviated ‘Kamm’ tail. Our correct matching numbers DB6 Mk II Vantage is documented by Aston Martin Lagonda Limited as being one of only 46 cars to be originally manufactured with the AE Brico fuel injection system although this was not properly developed and many of these cars were later converted to Weber carburettors by the Aston Martin factory as this one was, together with the fitment of the ultra-rare “C” type specification Vantage engines that the factory supplied producing a reported 325 bhp. A significant improvement over the already impressive 285 bhp of the standard DB6, this car is presented in the ultimate specification together with an original manufactured, five-speed manual ZF gearbox. Supplied new on the 13th February 1970 to Mr Nigel Vinson, the noted previous ownership details in the historical chassis file show only 3 keepers from new. The last owner, Mr P J Briggs, acquired the DB6 Mk2 on the 15th March 1978 owning the car for 38 years! Under the custodianship of the three previous owners, detailed service and maintenance has been carried out by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd and further works by other marque specialists up to the present day. This outstanding low mileage, three owner motorcar is presented in Olive Metallic with its original Natural Hide interior as originally manufactured. Accompanying the car is its highly documented historical chassis file, which includes: * Drivers instruction hand book * Original BMIHT certificate * Original warranty card * Copy of a factory build record * Detailed ownership from new (Three Keepers) * Previous title documents including original “Green Registration Book” * MOT’s from 1976 * Historical tax discs from 1978 * Various AMLL correspondence * Maintenance invoices from 1971 – 2015 * Aston Martin DB6 MKII brochure * Aston Martin DB6 Vantage road test Our post sales preparations will include a complete mechanical service by a marque specialist prior to handover.
