This lovely example of a Mini Pick-up is available for a negotiated sale before it goes to auction, targeting £17,000 + 6% buyers premium. Visit TradeClassics.com to see the full details with over 200 images, and extensive video reviews. Dave inherited this car when his uncle sadly passed away around a year ago. Since then, Dave and his sister Jen have been joint custodians of their former uncles car. His uncle owned this car from new he believes, and this car was actually used mainly by his aunt. His uncle used and maintained the car up until his later years in life, as can be seen when you look at the MOT history available online. Dave would probably confess that he is not a classic car enthusiast. But that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t care for the car at all, for both Dave and Jen the cars have a place in their memories from when their uncle and aunt used to use them. Due to a lack of time to use them now, Dave and Jen would like the car to go on to a new home where it will be used once again hopefully. Dave and his sister Jen have spent some time and money to get the car to a high standard. A full restoration on the body was completed at the start of the year, and now the car looks stunning. You can see images of the work in progress in the media section below. EXTERIOR Having been fully restored, and barely used by Dave and Jen since, the exterior of the car is stunning. Finished in what we believe to be “Old English White”, the Mini Pick-up looks delightful and almost factory fresh. Wheels & Tyres Steel wheels with chrome hubcaps, and high walled tyres adorn this Mini Pick-up. They haven’t suffered any serious corrosion, but some of the centre hubcaps have dents in them as can be observed in the media. Bodywork Stunning. The car has undergone a professional restoration, take a look at the images showing the work in progress. The bodywork on the car has been repaired with new panels being replaced as needed and important work on the sills completed. Paint The paintwork across the car looks lovely. It is even in colour and finish across all the panels, and looks deep and finished to a high quality. We believe the car is finished in Old English White, sadly the chassis plate does not list the paint code. Glass and Trim The glass all looks in original condition, and the seals have been replaced as part of the restoration. The glass has been etched with the registration number that Dave and Jens aunt used to use the car with, as was common practice. Dave and Jen have had a new cover made for the cargo area which has no signs of wear. INTERIOR Finished black on black inside the cabin, some work has been completed to bring the car up to a nice standard from the inside too. The headlining would benefit from being replaced as can be seen in the media. Seats and Carpets The seats and carpet are finished in black, with both looking like have been replaced recently. The seats show no sign of wear and the carpet looks a deep black and unworn. Dashboard The cars dashboard just features a simple Smiths odometer and speedo. Having reviewed the MOT history, the car looks to have had a new odometer fitted and/or it has suffered from not working correctly as the mileage jumps around. Steering Wheel / Gear Stick These look in original condition, take a look at the media detailing the wear on both the steering wheel and gear stick. MECHANICS We took the Mini Pick-up on a quick blast around the local area. It started from cold on the first attempt, and it was great little trip in the evening sun. Engine and Gearbox The engine pulled us along with no issues, starting from cold and idling while hot without issue. No smoke observed, and the engine bay was professionally cleaned down as part of the restoration. Dave took the car through it’s gears with no issues as seen in the video. Suspension and Brakes The car felt just like a Mini should as a passenger, firm but fair I would say. There were no knock/rattles heard on our trip, and the car stopped like it should do too. The Drive The 998cc engine pulled us along the country roads without fault, building up speed as we worked our way through all the gears. Electrics and Other The central dials on the dash worked as expected, and Dave informed us that all other ancillary electrics work.

HISTORY FILE Registered new on the 1st September 1980 this fabulous Austin Morris Princess 2 has only had three former keepers from new. Purchased in September 2007 by Kevin Smith from long term owner Mr William Sommerfield, the previous owner since 1985! Mr Smith searched relentlessly for an original Austin Princess and was delighted to have acquired this example seemingly needing very little work to be a show car. Unfortunately the reality was very different and although completely original, expert restorers quoted an eye watering amount spanning six pages, to make the car a show piece. Mr Smith, exhausted with searching agreed to all works and the end result is stunning. On receiving the car back it was quickly booked into some shows and on its first two outings broke down each time. Mr Smith’s wife vowed never to set foot in the car again and not wishing to embark on weekends away alone, the car remained in the garage unused until acquired by KGF Classic Cars. Now recommissioned and ready for its next adventure this iconic British Leyland Wedge is ready for an appreciative new owner. MOT September 2019, HPI clear.

HISTORY FILE The current owner and creator of this delightful Mini Cooper Recreation is Roy Parmenter. An absolute motoring fanatic and at the age of 76 years has even published a book featuring all the cars he has owned. With cars such as an Aston Martin DB5, Carrera Panamerica Porsche 356 and ’36 Le Mans MG PB it is great to see this latest personal indulgence featured. Registered new on the 21st October 1982 as a humble Mini City, Roy purchased the car from Richard Williams of Devon for a large sum of money due to its fantastic structural and low mileage credentials. Bizarrely after paying such a large sum of money the intention was to always build a vanity project, namely a Austin Mini Cooper Recreation. This was done over a two year period to a fantastic build specification and thorough knowledge thanks to Roy having owned a number of original Mini Coopers over the years! A file of invoices, costings and a personal written account with leave no doubt in the next owners mind how meticulous Roy is. With the original 1960’s Austin Mini Cooper Mk1 an icon of the British motoring history and as such fine examples can command figures in excess of £40k and the ‘S’ equivalent far more, this recreation is a combination of improved engineering expertise with 60’s elements that represents a rare opportunity to acquire a truly remarkable one off.

This is the Austin sister car to the world famous Fifties London FX3 taxi cab as featured in numerous films and of course made famous by Sid James in Carry on cabby. This was produced by Austin motor company with virtually the same body as the taxi cab but was named as the FL1 as there were some differences. Produced exactly the same but with a forth door at the front instead of being open, with rear tip up seats that faced forward rather than backwards, and of course no hire sign. The driver had the extra comfort of a bench seat rather than the cramped single seat that the taxi divers had. The car was produced in limited numbers as a private hire car to suit limousine service and could carry six persons including the driver

A rare surviving Austin Metro Automatic with an incredible 16,464 miles from new. EQUIPMENT All steel unitary construction, laminated windscreen, twin door mirrors, locking concealed fuel filler, grey moulded bumpers, side rubbing strip, styled halogen headlamps, twin rear fog lamps, loadspace lamp, front head restraints, rear parcel shelf, header rail console with digital clock, floor mounted centre console, heated rear window, variable-delay intermittent wipers, rear wash/wipe, cigar lighter, push-button pre-selector LW/MW radio. Dealer options; Rear mudflaps. EXTERIOR Finished in factory original colour Champagne Beige, (Code LMK), this fantastic and rare edition Metro Automatic has covered a remarkable 16,464 miles from new and is preserved in superb condition. The paintwork boasts a wonderful polished shine and uniform finish, and all panels are straight and damage free. With many Metro’s having succumbed to the harshness of daily use and the elements in the 1980’s, it is a true delight to see original features such as factory spot welds to the rear arches as well as supplying Austin-Rover dealer fitted number plates, rear screen sticker and tax disc holder. Only very close scrutiny will reveal light markings and touched in scratches, utterly insignificant and barely worthy of mention. The front and rear light clusters and even both side repeaters and rear fog lamps are factory fitment with the Austin logo to the lenses. Once a common sight on our roads, this fantastic example really does stir up nostalgia. INTERIOR The Metro Automatic was factory built to the same specification as the HLE model and as such featured higher levels of equipment to include, variable-delay intermittent wipers, header rail console with digital clock and Plain and Moonstripe Tweed trim with padded front head restraints. A testament to the incredible low mileage, the seats in the Flint colour scheme, (Code CNC), remain in pristine condition with no damage or wear whatsoever. All interior trim is as new and could almost convince you that you are in a 1985 Austin Rover showroom! Low mileage indicators include prominent veins to the steering wheel and factory fresh controls and switchgear. The push-button pre-selector LW/MW radio works perfectly but digital clock is not functioning. Reminiscent of a far simpler motoring era, this highly collectable Metro is truly delightful. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The legendary and time proven A-Series engine of 1275cc displacement needs no introduction. Producing an ample 62bhp, this sedate Metro offers a relaxed driving experience with a top speed of 92mph and 0-60 in 15.5 seconds. The engine bay is spotlessly clean and factory plates, stickers, panel stampings, and protective wax visible. Factory fitted with an oil cooler as standard on the Automatic model, the four-speed automatic transmission with manual overide facility operates exactly as it should. Even the special, directional light filter which prevents the illuminated gear selector markings from reflecting in the windscreen at night remains effectual and fully functional. Ideal for the classic show circuit and every day retro motoring! WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Factory standard pressed steel TD wheels remain fitted and are shod in premium brand 165/65 R315 TD tyres which include original fitment, whereby renewal prior to regular use would be a wise safety precaution. The dual line servo-assisted brakes with ventilated front discs pull the car up quickly and safely. HISTORY FILE Registered new on 1st October 1985 by Austin Rover Main Dealers and Leycare approved outlet, Brooks of Martock, this cherished Metro has covered an exceptionally low 16,464 miles from new! An Austin Rover cars sales brochure from 1985 with accessories booklet and price list tells you how a brand-new Metro Automatic would have cost £5,916.46 at the time. The history file is huge and contains a large folder of neatly filed service invoices as well as every MOT certificate dating back to the early 1990’s. The extensive service history fully verifies the mileage and offers an insight to the fastidious maintenance this car has enjoyed. With Metro’s fast becoming a symbol of the era and increasingly collectable, this pampered example is without question of the best in existence. MOT August 2019, HPI Clear.

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
£19,950 Firm More commonly known as Jaguars first car the Austin 7 Swallow. In 1928 the Swallow Sidecar company diversified from making motorcycle side cars to buying Austin 7 rolling chassis' and coach building the bodies of their design prior to retailing as the 'Swallow' This saloon is a 1930 model built in late 1929 that drives and runs. Good original interior and many correct parts but still work would be required to get to take it to the next stage, Records dating back to 1947 show it is a matching number vehicle.

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

£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.

This competition car was built from scratch using new & reconditioned parts throughout. The works were undertaken by specialists & is finished to a high standard. The car is ready for shakedown, then competition at Sprints, Hill Climbs & Circuits with the 750 Motor Club & the VSCC, although the car would need some modification to gain a "Buff Form". A write-up of the build & specification is available on request. Potentially a very quick car.
