This superbly presented MKI Mini Saloon was first registered on the 01st Jan 1961 and was supplied brand new in a light blue to the Metropolitan Police Force and allocated the registration mark MDX958. Since this time it has had only two owners with the docs showing it was last sold in 1988, prior to our acquiring it on the 24.03.2012 as a barn find and putting it back on the road. Mini's are fast appreciating; this has to be a good long term purchase. During our ownership we have upgraded the brakes, engine, extra chrome etc as it was purchased as a first car for our daughter with it being a small engine but many origional features remain. It has the push button start, the horsehair seats which are now covered in a plasticised trim as seen in the pictures and many other features from when the car was first built. Now christened Judy this car is part of the family but we must let her go, she has been off road for roughly two years whilst we debated what to do and during this time was stored at our garage business but now we have semi-retired and she is sat on our drive uunder a blaket waiting to be loved and cherished by a new family as we have. Unfortunately, during this time one of the aliminium trumpets which act as suspension struts has broken and needs replacing, so the car will have to be picked up on a low loader, We are open to offers and although money is important to us as we have invested a substantial amount in this car to make her road worthy, we would also like her to go to a new home to be loved and cherished as we have, Please note milage is slightly more then advertised at 15300.

FOR SALE A splendid Austin Seven Basic Mini Saloon in show condition EQUIPMENT All steel unitary construction, double-dip headlamps with foot operated dip switch, hinged rear number plate, sliding windows, one sun visor, floor mounted starter switch, central instrument dial, oil pressure warning lamp, drivers seat adjustable, wide door pockets, flashing indicator stalk, fresh air heater, front ashtray. 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. Considered by some as running prototypes the early production models had distinguishing features such as the non-recessed glass apertures and flat sills. 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. The cream Austin speedo is beautifully preserved and sits fully functional on the painted board dash lining. Unique features are still fitted such as the flat switch panel, centre hinged sun visor and the rear view mirror with a long slender stem and pinch bracket to hold the glass finished in crackle black. 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.

FOR SALE Possibly the most cosseted Rover Montego 1.6LX ever with just 48,365 miles. EQUIPMENT Laminated windscreen, bronze tinted glass, body coloured bumpers and front grille, side rubbing strip, locking fuel cap, halogen headlamps, electric front windows, central locking, electric tilt/slide sunroof, electric/demisting mirrors, heated rear window, digital clock, cigar lighter, courtesy lamps, Phillips R570 stereo cassette, tachometer, warning lamp system, coin tray, vanity mirror.

EXTERIOR This outstanding Montego, owned from ten months old by the only private and utterly fanatical keeper is preserved to an incredible standard. The factory original paintwork in Flame Red, (Code COF), is simply exceptional with a deep glossy shine and polished finish with absolutely no fading. 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.

About this Austin Vanden Plas Princess
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

This stunning Austin A30 Van was built on the 13th October 1955 and supplied new in Westminster Green with Brown trim. The Van was built in RHD format for the home market and sold new by London dealer H.A Saunders Limited. TSK 911 is today still in its original colour with lovely original looking front seats. Our Austin also has the benefit of rear windows and a rear seat, carried out by Restall Brothers, Birmingham in the late 1960’s, a very period upgrade. TSK 911 has recently undergone a major programme of work that included brand new floor pans and a full re-paint. Major mechanical upgrades included fitting a 1098cc Sprite engine, rear axle and front brake discs. The modifications enhance the drive of the Austin, making it much more usable and more suited for regular or daily use. The Austin drives very well with a strong, quick engine, lovely gearbox and it brakes and handles well. The Austin will be sold with a full 12 months MOT, freshly serviced and ready for regular use. Over the past month or so the Austin has covered in the region of 100 miles and has proven totally reliable. TSK 911 presents well with smart Westminster Green paintwork, a clean tidy upholstery and engine

1938 AUSTIN BIG 7 FORLITE SALOON Original Reg No - FO 3723. Midnight Blue over Black Navy Blue Hide Interior Wool Carpets and Overmats Metal Sliding Roof Multi Award Winner One of the very best Austins you will ever see ! Beautifully detailed throughout with superb attention to detail. Large History file with Photographic Record of Rebuild. Original Buff Log Book, Sales Brochures, Handbooks, Rebuild Time Sheets Etc. Etc. Original 'barnfind' from 1983 Lovingly rebuilt to a standard that is rarely achieved.
Interested in this vehicle? 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.

This fabulous Austin Mini Mayfair Automatic has covered just 22000 miles from new and had just one owner from 1986 to 2013. D251 GWW was supplied new by Appleyard of Harrogate, first registered on 1st August 1986. The Mini still retains its original Appleyard After Sales Care passport with service book, handbook, consumer guide and entertainment handbooks. Having spent its entire life in Yorkshire, the Mini changed hands for the first time in 2013, heading to an elderly retired gentleman in North London. The car only spent 18 months in the Capital, covering in the region of 500 miles and being treated to over £1000 work to include new engine mountings, new front brake discs and pads, new front calipers, flexi hoses, inner and outer CV boots, new radiator, stabiliser bushes, shock absorbers, steering rack boots, track rod ends and full service to include new HT leads and distributor cap. We sold the Mini to its third owner, a long term regular customer in York who has covered local mileage in the York area, enjoying using the car during summer months with several trips to the Golf Club. We serviced the car and prepared it for a new MOT, finding no significant work being required. Ha

FOR SALE Quite possibly the best unrestored Austin Allegro 1100 DeLuxe with 10,190 miles. EQUIPMENT All steel unitary construction, underbody protection, recessed door-handles, anti-burst locks, safety steering column, Hydragas suspension, laminated windscreen, electric washers, two-speed wipers, flick wipe, exterior door mirror, hazard warning lights, child safety catches on rear doors, fresh-flow ventilation, heated rear window, Quartic steering wheel. Factory options; Brake servo. Dealer accessories; Mud flaps, Radiomobile. EXTERIOR Finished in the extremely rare factory original colour of Mirage, (Code BLVC11), this amazing Series One Allegro has been preserved incredibly well, owing to the remarkable low mileage of 10,190 under truly cherished ownership. The factory paint finish displays only minor age related markings and the chrome bumpers display very light pitting, utterly inoffensive and left untreated so as to uphold originality. Factory wax is visible in door apertures and on the clean underside which is free from excess rust proofing to allow easy inspection. Features unique to the early Series One cars remain correct such as the external bonnet release and the C-Pillar vents screwed from the inside as opposed external screws on later cars. Remarkable originality can be seen in the form of supplying dealer number plates, rear screen sticker and tax disc holder. The original Allegro bonnet and boot badges are fitted as well as the iconic British Leyland emblem fitted to the nearside wing only, just as they were made. This humble DeLuxe model was the entry level Allegro, and as such had no coachline, a feature which is upheld. An almost inconceivable rare survivor against unfavourable odds, very special. INTERIOR The spacious interior of this Allegro is completely original and in perfect preserved condition. The Knit-backed vinyl seat upholstery in Spanish Rose is essentially as new, as are the matching partial door cards and rubber floor coverings, again unique to the Deluxe model. Still fitted is the famous Quartic steering wheel, arguably the most iconic feature of the Allegro to allow ease of access and a better view of the instruments. Widely ridiculed as a concept, the Quartic wheel was phased out in 1974. A reflection of British Leyland quality control can be witnessed with factory glue marks on the headlining and even the chalk line to mark out siting of the instrument binnacle! Incredibly, a factory build tag is still attached inside the boot. Complete with the 1970’s British Leyland smell, this interior is astonishing. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The legendary and time proven A-Series engine of 1098cc displacement is robust, simple and has excellent parts availability. Producing an ample 49bhp and 59lb/ft of torque, this Allegro can hold its own in modern traffic. The engine is wonderfully quiet and whilst the clean engine bay shows natural aging, it is completely original and features factory plates and stickers. Even the Hydragas suspension sticker on the sphere remains intact! The four speed hydraulically operated all synchromesh gearbox delivers light and exact changes complete with the instantly recognisable first gear whine! WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Original pressed steel disc wheels with chrome hub caps are immaculate and shod in quality matching Pirelli P3000 tyres with excellent tread remaining. The well maintained Hydrogas suspension system is free from leaks and allows the car to sit level and correct, and more importantly ride as it should. The hydraulic brake system with 9.68in front discs and factory optional servo bring the car up safe and steady. HISTORY FILE Supplied by Austin Main Dealer, Peter O’Gorman in Essex, this 1973 built 1100 DeLuxe was registered new on the 21st February 1974. A new car retail order form made out to first owner, Miss Joan Earl, confirms a purchase price of £1,100.00 including £11.75 for brake servo, a factory option! A well-known example within the Allegro Owners Club with plenty of stand appearances, including the NEC Classic Car Show, this delightful car nicknamed ‘Violet’ is used to the limelight. ‘Violet’ has been awarded Best Series One Allegro at every Allegro Club International event it has attended! With just three former keepers, the previous of five years being Mr Ian Cole who has been a member of the Allegro Club International for 23 years, and has held in this period positions of Chairman, Director and Membership Secretary. The superb history file contains the original orange Passport to Service and Allegro handbook, as well as a 1974 Austin Allegro range sales brochure. A large history folder is beautifully presented and contains a substantial collection of MOT certificates throughout the cars entire lifetime and maintenance invoices to fully verify the low mileage of 10,190 miles. Furthermore, a record of TV appearances on three separate programmes is included! The original key set remains including the ignition key with very rare eyelet hole to delight the Allegro aficionado. An unrepeatable opportunity to buy surely one of the best unrestored examples of British Leyland motoring history. MOT March 2018, HPI clear.
