About this Austin Mini Countryman De-Luxe This lovely looking, London supplied Mini Estate is believed to be the second oldest surviving Austin Seven Countryman, its build date of 16th June 1960 being three months before the official launch date. As the Heritage certificate confirms, it was supplied in Tartan Red (as it is today) and with the plate that it still sports (4507 MH) to a Mr John Buck by Car Mart Limited and the date of despatch was 25th July 1960. The registration document infers that the car was then listed for sale almost immediately and was purchased by the second owner, a Mr John Hurford who owned the car for the majority of its life. It subsequently made its way onto Ebay in 2011 where it was purchased by the third owner, Mr Nigel Howard who embarked on a sympathetic rebuild. The paint was refreshed to the tune of over £7000 and the woodwork removed, refinished and refitted although the interior Longstone vinyl trim and and cloth headlining have been retained. The original engine and mechanicals have been rebuilt and detailed and there are invoices for whatever was needed. The fourth and final owner part exchanged it with us and we drove it back from deepest darke

According to a buff card log book in the file this lovely Austin Ascot saloon was first registered on 30 th June 1934 to a Mr. Devon of London and a little bit of research confirms that its BMH654 registration is one of a series of numbers issued in London from May 1934 onwards. It has been in the care of its current owner since 2003 and has clearly been in regular use as everything appears to work well apart from a slow reading speedometer and the Hobson Telegauge fuel level indicator though it does come with a perfectly serviceable dip-stick! As far as I can see it is very original apart from having been repainted in 1970 from cherry red to primrose yellow with black wings and roof and at some stage the front seat cushions appear to have been recovered though they match the rear seats very well. The four door saloon coachwork is sound and makes no untoward rattling noises as you drive along and the doors open and close without dropping on their hinges. To be fair the some of the paintwork could do with a bit of tidying here and there but the general standard of its finish is good. The upholstery is smart with no tears in the seat backs or cushions and the door trims are complete

We are delighted to offer this beautifully presented Austin Heavy 12 Burnham Saloon onto the market. VX 3960 appears to be very correct and still retains a large amount of originality including its registration mark. The car has spent the past three/four years with one owner in the York, Selby area and over this time has proven completely reliable, usable and comes to us on the button and driving superbly. When initially purchased by the recent owner, the Austin was treated to a new water pump impeller, a new oil pressure gauge, new wiper motor and wiper arms. From the history file with the Austin, we know back in 2011 some major mechanical work was carried out. This included dismantling the engine and rebuilding it as necessary. New parts included gaskets, head studs, valve guides, valves, timing gears, timing chains, manifold studs and nuts and new sump bolts. Further work included fitting a new clutch, stripping and cleaning the Autovac and setting the brakes. VX 3960 drives very well with good steering, efficient brakes and the engine runs and performs beautifully. The four speed gearbox is a delight to use, the 12/4 cruises nicely and feels strong, robust and reliable. The Aus
Requiring no introduction, the Mk.I Mini Cooper ‘S’ 1275cc is perhaps the hottest car to own today, and de rigueur for any collector… Our car, a late 1967 build sold by Stringers Motors of Bournemouth in June ’68 is offered with its original registration it adorned then, sports its original colour scheme of Island Blue with Old English White roof and boasts just four former keepers making it surely a consideration to any prospective Cooper S purchaser? We won’t pretend this car is 100% original having been altered in the early 1980’s when used in fast-road and rally competitions as part of Colin McRae’s Aberdeen and District Motor Club, but it is genuine matching chassis and engine numbers; does carry a period charm; and is not priced at above £55,000 as many seem to believe is accurate! Our pocket-rocket Cooper is exceptionally quick thanks to its Stage 4 1293cc ‘S’ engine and ‘S’ box with lower final drive. It sports twin Dellorto down draught carburetors, forged Works pistons, stage 4 fully-ported big-valve ‘S’ head, fully-adjustable suspension, high-load sport clutch pressure plate and modified oil pressure relief valve. ‘MRU 788F’ was the subject of a comprehensive bare-metal restoration in 2002 with replaced or restored front wings, inner and outer ‘A’ posts, outer doorsteps, inner and outer sills, boot floor and battery box, complete offside rear arch, then stripped, seam-sealed and repainted topside and underneath. Despite the paint retaining a deep shine, after 15 years it could now be bettered. The retains many original features and parts including Grey and Gold Brocade rear seats and door cards, however, crushingly, the front seats were replaced by period style bucket seats many years ago, and the dashboard has been replaced to allow for more instrumentation which was necessary when campaigned. We’re certain these aspects could be reinstated if one chose, and this is why our asking price leaves enough ‘value’ left in the car for somebody to undertake this. Accompanied by BMIHT heritage certificate, current MOT, V5C and several past log books, a full DVLA record of owners, countless invoices and receipts and a whole host of photographs, we invite your sincere interest and viewing of this special little Mini.
£15,950 Originally registered as OD4251 in December 1932 this delightful Austin 7 tourer has an extremely detailed history, covering the ownership from the 1930's, together with copious notes on the upkeep of the car since the late 1940's.

£6750 Originally launched in 1958, the Austin Healey Sprite went through four Marks, before the Healey name was dropped late in MK1V due to the Healey connection being discontinued in 1971, so the final 1,022 Sprites built were simply Austin Sprites. This was a cost-cutting move of Donald Stokes', enabling British Leyland to stop paying royalties to the Donald Healey Motor Company. There was no direct successor, as BL's extensive range already contained the MG Midget, which was identical to the Sprite except for badging, and the similarly dimensioned and priced Triumph Spitfire. This 1275 cc Austin Sprite was one of the last series built in 1971, and was registered a year later in 1972 Originally registered as NUC292L in 1972, the Sprite has been subject to the attention of four enthusiastic owners since the 1980’s. who have well maintained the car, it comes with a sheaf of invoices detailing the work over the years, including more recently 2012 / 2013, the engine was rebuilt for fast road / track use, with an engine rebore with new H/C pistons and tuning modifications carried out in the last 7000 miles, the Sprite was MOT’d this year and is due for renewal in January 2018.

EXTERIOR This exhilarating car started out as an Austin Mini Thirty limited edition in Cherry Red. In 2013 a truly incredible transformation project was undertaken to create the very special vehicle offered today. Finished in Flame Red, this Mini instantly grabs your attention with a vibrant shine and beautifully polished finish from the expensive bare metal repaint, fully documented in a photo album. Structurally perfect with absolutely no corrosion to the panels, the fully de-seamed shell conversion has been carried out to an impeccable standard to create a clean aesthetic appeal. Virtually flawless, even under close scrutiny you will struggle to detect a blemish. All brightwork is excellent aside from very faint pitting on the rear number plate lamp cover. This very unique example really does mean business! INTERIOR Upon entering the cockpit of this marvellous Mini, you are instantly exposed to the original Mini seats and door cards in excellent condition. To lift the interior, a set of quality bright red carpets have been professionally fitted and features such as the Piano Black dashboard, chrome fixtures and Mountney steering wheel complete the look. One of the project parameters was to ensure that the original Mini charm was preserved, a goal that has certainly been achieved with the work carried out to the interior. A beautifully clean interior with only subtle hints towards what lays beneath the bonnet, very exciting! ENGINE, TRANSMISSION & SUSPENSION An absolute no expense spared mechanical build is fully documented with a huge financial outlay in order to achieve something truly incredible. Designed and prepared by renowned bespoke engineers, Specialist Components, their skill and capability is clear to see upon visiting their website. Using the original A Series engine, a BMW K Series 16v twin cam motorcycle cylinder head has been engineered with specification to include; 1380cc, Omega die-cast pistons, Kawasaki ZZ-R 1100 C Carburettors and Mini Cooper S steel H beam con-rods. The complete specification is truly exhaustive and all workmanship is of the highest level. Commonly with such conversions, it is necessary to use redesigned bonnet and wings in order to allow the engine to fit. However, the use of bespoke engine mountings has meant that the all important standard panel shape remains. This added attention to detail is exceptional and a recent rolling road in June 2017 confirmed output at 135bhp. The Adjusta Ride suspension kit and Gmax uprated shock absorbers give the car a perfect stance but with none of the original Mini magic lost, and the Sportex exhaust system with Klarius rear silencer creates a truly addictive bark! WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Ultralite 7x13 alloy wheels with polished rims are fitted, including the spare, with matching quality Yokohama 175/50 R13 tyres. These beautifully crafted rims are complimented by a Group 5 Race wheel arch kit to offer an extreme sporting look. This Mini stops as well as it goes with a vastly uprated braking system to include Mini Braided turbo Metro vented four pot callipers and Braided Aeroquip hose kit. HISTORY FILE Registered new on 29th September 1989 by Austin Rover Main Dealers Seward Highcliffe Ltd, this example remained as a standard Mini Thirty for most of its life. The colossal history file covers the entire life of the vehicle before the transformation took place in 2013 with documents such as the original service booklet displaying supplying dealer stamps with supporting invoices. Furthermore, a truly eye watering collection of literally hundreds of receipts in excess of £12,000 for components alone offers an insight to just how comprehensive this project was. It is also a reflection of the owner’s desire to create the ultimate Mini at no expense spared. A large collection of photographs documents both the bodywork and mechanical workings and will leave in no doubt the exceptional level of craftsmanship displayed. An insurance marker was placed on the vehicle in 2001 following very light front end damage to one wing and slam panel. A repair invoice in the history file confirms the damage amounted to just £350 and is a reflection of the cars value at that time. The vehicle born from this epic project is nothing short of outstanding in every respect. The classic Mini look mated to truly exhilarating performance, all carried out to the highest standard.

Possibly the best existing Austin Metro City 310 Van with just 17,156 miles. EQUIPMENT All steel unitary construction, anti-burst locks, grey rolled steel bumpers, zinc primed body, hydragas suspension, integral front spoiler, locking fuel filler, twin black door mirrors, rear wash/wipe, laminated windscreen, twin sun visors with docket pockets, high lift tailgate, heated rear window, brake pad warning indicator, trip recorder. Van features; Full steel loadspace bulkhead with welded mesh upper section, steel loadfloor extension, load space side panel protection, loadspace lamp, 310kg payload. Factory options; Vinyl seat facings. EXTERIOR This virtually extinct Metro City 310 Van is preserved to an incredible standard and the factory applied White Diamond paintwork, (Code NMN), is amazing with only very faint imperfections visible. Worthy of mention are a tiny ding to the driver’s door and one to the offside rear arch. The underside is free from heavy application of underseal to allow inspection of the vehicles structural integrity. All trim sections are pristine and the 310 boot lid badge remains fitted along with supplying dealer number plates, tax disc holder and rear screen sticker. The rear load area is unbelievably clean for an unrestored example and the boot floor hatch conceals the spare wheel along with the original jack, wheel brace and tyre lever all still in the Styrofoam moulding! With just three devoted keepers from new, this has to be the luckiest Metro van ever made! INTERIOR Wonderfully sparse yet functional, this really is everything you need and nothing else! The seats are trimmed in factory optional Flint Vinyl, (Code LCG), with matching door cards and vinyl floor coverings. It is hard to justify describing the cabin space as anything other than perfect with absolutely no wear to the seats or flooring. The fascia, headlining and switchgear are all flawless, and what little equipment there is operates exactly as it should. The exceptionally low mileage is proven with the steering wheel and gear knob retaining all texture and definition. Guaranteed to stir up fond nostalgia, it is impossible not to sit in the driver’s seat and smile. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The legendary and time proven A-plus engine of 1275cc displacement needs no introduction with robust simple mechanics and excellent parts availability. Producing a spirited 62bhp and 72 lb/ft of torque, this spritely Metro can hold its own in modern traffic and is tremendous fun with Mini like road manners. The clean engine bay displays factory plates and stickers, and stampings to the factory panels are clearly visible. The four speed all synchromesh gearbox delivers light and exact changes with the feel of a very low mileage example. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The standard steel wheels in superb order remain with the car and are shod in the factory supplied and commercial vehicle specific Michelin TDXE 160/65 R315 tyres. Whilst excellent tread remains, renewal prior to regular use is advisable. The dual circuit hydraulic brake system with circuit failure monitor pull the car up quickly and safely. HISTORY FILE A well-known example within the Metro Owners Club and the subject of a main feature in the August 2015 edition of Classic Van and Pick-up magazine, this Metro Van is very special. Supplied new by Austin Rover Main Dealers, Lex Rover of Cheltenham, this 1989/1990 model year example was kept at the dealership until being registered on 6th July 1992. The first owner, an elderly gentleman Mr Harry Chadwick, purchased the van having driven commercial vehicles throughout his working life and preferring them to cars. Mr Chadwick kept the van, always dry stored, for over 20 years at which point the second keeper, Mr Simeon Akister, purchased it to remind him of his student days driving one whilst working for a hotel in the Lake District. Sold by KGF Classic Cars to an opticians who used the vehicle sparingly for advertising purposes this vehicle is now ready for the next lucky custodian. The history file is comprehensive with the original Lex Rover plastic wallet containing all original handbooks, guides and point of sale literature, even down to the salesman’s business cards and the welcome letters from Rover. A large collection of invoices and old MOT certificates provide just an insight to just how well cared for this van is. Exceptionally rare in any condition, this wonderful Metro 310 Van is unrepeatable in such preserved state and represents a delightful slice of motoring history along with legends such as the Morris Mini Van and Morris Pick-up.

EXTERIOR This stunning very early Austin Mini is finished in hard wearing Farina Grey, (Code GR11), and is virtually flawless with an impressive glossy shine. Being the Basic model no bright inserts are found in the window rubbers and correct features such as the body colour petrol filler cap and rear number plate lamp in black remain fitted.

These cars were 50kg lighter than the standard production car. The wavy chrome grill and correct boot script are in excellent order. Wheel arch apertures are incredibly clean and the underside is body coloured. Cuteness in abundance! INTERIOR Being the Basic model the seats are finished hard wearing Grey Woven Cloth that have been meticulously recreated by Hunters of Brora Ltd and look absolutely fabulous.

Thick pile grey carpeting and matching woven cloth door cards have been professionally tailored and replace the rubber mats. The floor mounted starter button remains in situ. Simply divine. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION A water cooled, overhead-valve four-cylinder engine mounted transversely has a cubic capacity of 848cc and produces 34bhp. The engine is whisper quiet and is still the factory supplied unit with matching numbers. Early production car features such as the metal oil filler cap and metal filler caps for the master cylinders are still fitted. The correct DR2 wiper motor and heater take off tap accessed from the engine bay on top of the head is fitted. The cylinder head has been converted to run on unleaded. The engine bay has been detailed for bonnet-up showing and creating a ‘wow’ factor The original 4-speed gearbox works well and is operated via the correct straight gear stick as fitted only to early cars. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Pristine JBW Minilight alloy wheels with new Falken 145/80 R10 tyres have been fitted. Braking to all four wheels is hydraulically operated by a pendant pedal with two leading shoes at the front. The handbrake lever is the correct type with the chrome button. HISTORY FILE Built on the 18th November 1959 this example is one of the most iconic of all the Minis as it was built within the first three months of the public launch date of the 26th August 1959 as confirmed by the Heritage Motor Centre. These early built cars possess a uniqueness with individual build differences before full scale production, standardisation and the ‘facelift’ in October 1960. With only three owners from new this example has a fascinating history all catalogued in the history file. The first owner enjoyed the car for six years before a Mr Mucklejohn purchased the car for his son, Ian, in 1965. Only used by Ian for two years before being hit head-on by a Ford Cortina. Fortunately Ian suffered only minor injuries and even kept the newspaper extract dated the 10th February 1967 where the Cortina driver was fined £10 with a licence endorsement! A Front End number of FE68802 confirms dating of August 1960 to the body after the repairs. While the vehicle was being repaired Ian purchased a Hillman Imp which he preferred to drive so once the Mini was returned it lay idle and unused. In 1999 after 32 years of being off the road Ian decided to have the vehicle restored to ‘as new’ condition with an invoice presented for the privilege of £14,726.90. After 50 years of ownership KGF Classic Cars were delighted to sell the car to the third keeper, Mr Robin Guest who has now decided to sell in order to concentrate on his primary passion, motorcycles. A history file comprising of wonderful period artefacts including letters, photos and period literature are included along with a certificate from the 1959 Mini Register & Mini Magazine identifying this example as a surviving 1959 Mini and thus formed part of the Mini 50th anniversary celebrations.

The virtually spotless factory panels are completely free from corrosion or damage, as is the underside having been protected from new with rust proofing treatment. The devoted long term keeper even routinely removed the inner door cards to apply additional wax to the door bottoms, despite the car being strictly garage stored and never ever used in the rain! This unmolested showpiece displays the supplying dealer number plates and the optional acrylic headlamp covers fitted from new. The trim sections are excellent aside from small hairline cracks to the C-pillar covers. Any Montego is now a rare survivor, this example is almost beyond comprehension! INTERIOR A pristine, unaltered and period interior is sure to delight and amaze fans of Austin Rover cars. The original Zenith Cloth trim in Flint, (Code LCG), remains unworn with absolutely no damage whatsoever. The matching colour keyed door cards and headlining are superb, and the cut pile carpets are beautifully preserved having been protected by two sets of mats. All functions and controls operate perfectly and the dashboard and associated switchgear are as new. The fastidious owner even tailor made a cover for the dashboard and sheaths to place over the door lock buttons to protect them from the sun! The factory fitted Phillips R570 radio cassette remains fitted and operational. With a reputation for fragility, the exceptional interior of this cosseted Montego is a credit to its devoted owner. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION This Montego LX features the standard 1598cc OHC four cylinder engine with electronic carburettor control developing 86bhp at 5600rpm. With a top speed of 103mph and 0-60 covered in 11.2 seconds, this car feels lively and surprisingly refined. The engine bay is beautifully clean, unaltered and displays factory panel stampings, plates and even fragile stickers. The five speed transmission is light, smooth and effortless. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The standard 14in wheels wear the original and correct 1.6LX specification hubcaps in perfect order, un-badged as specified by Rover. The 185/65 R14 tyres have good tread remaining and the original Goodyear tyre remains fitted and unused to the spare wheel. The Austin Rover polystyrene circular insert holds the jack, wheel brace and hub cap puller. Diagonally split dual circuit brakes with servo assistance and front discs bring the car up straight and steady. HISTORY FILE Registered new by the Rover Group MCP Department as a company vehicle on the 20th June 1991, the first and only private keeper purchased the car when it was just ten months old on the 23rd April 1992. Rover Main Dealer, Henlys of Northampton, supplied the vehicle to Miss Zoe Waterfield after she specified particularly that she wanted a Flame Red Montego with electric windows, sunroof and central locking! The used vehicle invoice in the colossal history file illustrates the price paid of £6,500 and is accompanied by the Henlys pre-sale checklist and welcome letter. To say that Miss Waterfield is renowned and respected within the Austin-Rover community is a huge understatement, and her dedication to her beloved brand knows no limits with countless visits to Longbridge and even actively protesting the BMW takeover of Rover in January 1994. Her fanatical following even earned her rare and confidential items such as Top Secret ‘Introducing the Austin’ and Pocket Guides held by Austin Rover Sales staff only, all retained in the Henlys wallet alongside the original stamped service booklet, handbooks and dealership literature. Despite the low mileage of just 48,365 and the car being stored throughout each winter, the beautifully presented and chronological history folder is simply huge. Virtually every MOT certificate, invoice, receipt and even a journey log have been kept. Furthermore, there are articles, club membership literature, photographs and awards as well as three sets of keys including the grey master. An unmissable opportunity to acquire one of the best, unmolested and original Montego’s in existence. MOT June 2018, HPI Clear.

Please email us at email@example.com or contact us directly by telephone on 01363 83909 The Austin 10/4 Lichfield offered the pre-war buyers from the professional classes that little extra room and horsepower compared with the ubiquitous 'Seven'. The dashboard was well equipped and finished in polished wood, opening front screen, fold-flat boot lid which could accomodate a travelling trunk and 12 volt electrics made this model an immediate success. This London registered example remains in very original and useable condition and was last Mot'd in 2009 since when it has been carefully stored. It starts readily, settles down to a quiet tickover and both clutch and brakes function as they should. Bodywork is solid and paintwork reasonable. An ideal candidate to use and improve as required in the sound knowledge that its value should never diminish. £ 7,500.
