*DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN WITHDRAWN BUT WILL BE OFFERED AT OUR JULY 8TH SALE AT BROOKLANDS* The E-Type was manufactured between 1961 and 1975, with Jaguar creating a legend by combining good looks and high performance all at a competitive price. Established as an icon of 1960's motoring and a great success for Jaguar, more than 70,000 E-Types were sold during its lifespan, around 60,000 of these were left hand drive mainly destined for the USA. The Series One was introduced, initially for export only, in March 1961, with the domestic market launch coming four months later, in July of that year. The cars at this time used the triple SU carburettor, 3.8-litre, six cylinder XK engine and non synchromesh gearbox from the XK150S plus some very pretty but upright and uncompromising seats. The 4.2 litre cars were introduced in October 1964 with the same power and top speed of 150mph, but with more torque from the larger engine, a brand new all synchromesh gearbox, some very comfortable seats and brakes more in keeping with that advertised top speed. The 4.2 litre was a far better product and much easier to live with on a daily basis. This example is the sought

The last Bentley to be built on a separate chassis, in 1962, saw the introduction of the Bentley S3 factory bodied standard steel saloon and, at first glance, it would appear that the all new S3 was merely an S2 with different headlamps. The introduction of the twin headlamps was clearly the most obvious change but the differences did not end there. Further changes included the introduction of smaller bumper overriders and the repositioning of the front indicators and side lamps into one single unit on the front wing resulting in a more attractive appearance. The S3's interior now had individual front seats in place of the split bench seat found in the earlier S-Types and some had air conditioning, electric windows and front seat belts fitted. Mechanically speaking the S3 was the same as the S2 with a 6230cc Rolls-Royce V8 engine and automatic gearbox but this model was fitted with larger carburettors, improved power steering to aid smoother movement at parking speed and a Lucas vacuum-advance distributor to aid fuel consumption making it almost identical in mechanical specification to the S3 Continental that was being produced at the same time.

The Volkswagen Type 2 was to make its debut in 1950 being initially based on the early Beetle model. Simple and rugged, the vehicle was to prove its worth in terms of reliability and longevity and, before long, numerous permutations were available. During the 1960s, the Type 2 Combi was to become synonymous with the hippy movement, particularly in the U.S. where examples were frequently painted in psychedelic colour schemes and kitted out to provide living accommodation. They were a frequent sight at rock festivals and concerts throughout, in recent times, celebrity ownership has raised the profile of these characterful vehicles and the split-screen models in all their different guises are especially loved, good examples being keenly sought. Imported into the UK in 2009, this much loved Volkswagen has been enjoyed and used regularly by the vendor. Mechanically, this is a very well sorted example and cosmetically she has been continually worked on and as such presents in good order. The red and white interior is both striking and practical for those long days at the beach. This lefthand drive 'tin-top splittie' sits proudly on Porsche Fuchs alloy wheels offering a comfortable and sm
The MGB, launched in May 1962, was a relatively modern design at the time of its introduction, utilising a monocoque structure instead of the traditional body on chassis construction used on both the earlier MGA and MGT types. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows were standard and a comfortable driver's compartment offered plenty of legroom. The MGB's performance was considered brisk at the time of its introduction, with a 0-60mph time of just over 11 seconds aided by the relatively lightweight of the car. Handling was certainly one of the MGB's strong points. This MGB Roadster was first registered on 1st January 1965 and is presented in British Racing Green and is complimented by a set of chrome wire wheels. The coachwork presents well and features the early MGB pull handle doors, an optional hardtop as well as a recently replaced soft top and half tonneau. The interior, with its black leather seats and cream piping, certainly invites you in as it smells just right and is in very good order. Where the real benefit of this MG lays is that the engine has been rebuilt, balanced and supercharged. The cylinder capa
- Desirable Vantage in the current ownership for 30 years, stored since c.1991, engine free - Shell Grey with Dark Blue hide and blue carpet, original engine & registration number - Nice history file back to the 1970s including correspondence with original owner Introduced at the 1965 Motor Show, the Aston Martin DB6 was notable as the first model to be engineered following a factory move from Feltham to Newport Pagnell. Although, it shared the same visage as the outgoing DB5, the newcomer enjoyed notably better high-speed stability and interior space thanks to the provision of a Kamm tail and four-inch longer wheelbase respectively. Grafted over a sheet steel platform chassis, the four-seater's hand-finished aluminium panels helped contribute to a 1,466kg kerb weight. Praised by the contemporary press for its poise and handling, the DB6 employed all-round coil-sprung suspension, four-wheel disc brakes and rack-and-pinion steering. Powered by a reworked version of the fabulous Tadek Merak designed 3995cc DOHC straight-six engine featuring a trio of Weber carburettors, the desirable Vantage variant was quoted as developing 325bhp and 288lbft of torque. Fitted with a five-speed ZF ma

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Mark 1 Vantage Volante RHD This DB6 is an exceedingly rare motorcar being one of just 29 examples built with the desirable Volante drop head body and finished to Vantage specification. The Vantage models featured a number of upgrades including power steering, power operated hood, electric windows, front seat belts as well as an uprated engine fitted with three twin choke Weber DCOE 45s, which delivered an increased power output of 325 bhp versus the 282 bhp of the standard model. The example offered here is particularly important in view of its well documented ownership history that includes the legendary composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein. According to the factory build sheets this car was originally supplied in the U.K. to Mr B.M. Lee of Hadleywood in April 1967. As delivered, it had the options of 3.73:1 limited slip differential, chrome wire wheels with three ear knock-off spinners and a power aerial. After a brief period with Mr Lee, the factory records note two further British owners, the first being a Mr S. Newman of the architecture practice Newman Levison & Co while the second is simply listed as the '
Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1970 Aston Martin DB6 MKII This delightful MKII DB6 was constructed in late 1970 and as such is one of the later examples of just 248 cars produced. It was originally registered UB3 on 16th December 1970 by its first owner, a Mr Blume of Salcombe Devon, who cherished it for almost 40 years. During his ownership Mr Blume fastidiously maintained the car, as evidenced by the numerous invoices and items of correspondence included in the history files and only used it sparingly, which has contributed to its excellent overall condition. The car was only sold to its second owner in November of 2010 who decided that the time had come for a full restoration, which was duly undertaken by noted specialists Desmond Smail. Detailed invoices and photographs documenting this work accompany the car and attest to the high standard of the restoration. Recently acquired by JD Classics this car is currently in excellent overall condition and presents wonderfully in its Tudor Grey paintwork and Red interior. With full matching numbers, factory original electric windows, only two private owners and original mileage of just 45,121 miles it provides a fantastic
Chassis Number: DB6/3044/R Engine Number: 400/3067 UK Registration Number: ABW 220 E Date of first reg: 20th March 1967 Exterior colour: Black Pearl Metallic Hood: Interior colour: Black Leather Current Odometer reading: 75,560 Mileage Warranty: Steering: Right Transmission: Manual Options: Engine capacity increased to 4.5 litre, Vantage Specification Background Background: After rejecting proposals for a replacement for the DB5 from Touring of Milan, the decision was made by Aston Martin to focus on their own development car, registered, 4 YMC. Testing it in a wind tunnel for the first time in February 1965, showed the need for work to counteract the test car’s rear end lift. So the final development phases saw a DB5 chassis, suitably lengthened and titled MP219, with a rear spoiler and abbreviated Kamm tail that Aston Martin had previously incorporated in sports racers. The decision was made to progress MP 219 as the Aston Martin DB6 although its de Dion rear axle was replaced with a live axle on cost grounds. So the new car, announced at the London Motor Show in October 1965, had a wheelbase extended by 3.75 inches with the extra inserted just ahead of the rear wheel arches and
