Aston Martin V8 Vantage Manual 2007 The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was introduced in 2005 as a more direct competitor to the Porsche 911. A leaner car than had been produced at Aston for some time and a hugely successful car for the brand, being produced until 2016. This particular car finished in Ghillies Green with a Magnolia Leather interior and with the popular 6 Speed Manual Gearbox is in truly delightful, almost unmarked condition. It comes with a comprehensive Aston Service history and nine stamps in the Service Book. And with only 42000 miles this confirms the excellent provenance of the car. As you would expect, the car comes with stunning alloy wheels, Sat Nav, Climate Control and electric seats. If you’re looking to put an Aston Martin on your drive, look no further than this as at only £31995 it could be considered something of a bargain!
BMW 700CS Coupe When was the last time you saw a BMW 700 Coupe? The only one I personally have ever encountered was being driven by Jackie Oliver at Goodwood Revival. How many left don’t even list them, and I know of only one other a BMW Club Member who has one. According to information in this car’s file, only a very few were made in Right Hand Drive, and there will no doubt only be a tiny fraction of those in existence now. Furthermore I’m told that this could possibly the very last Right Hand Drive one Built. The BMW 700 is a small rear-engined car which was produced by BMW in various models from August 1959 to November 1965. It was the first BMW automobile with a monocoque structure, and it was a huge sales success at a time when BMW was close to financial ruin. The 700 was also successful in its class in motorsport, both in its stock form and as the basis of a racing special called the 700RS. So this car is rare, of that there is no doubt. As you can see from the photographs the car is a few steps up from a barn find. A restoration was started some years ago, but never finished as you can see. The shell which is remarkably corrosion free was repainted, and then left, but dry stored. It’s also a car with only 5 owners in total. Furthermore it’s also the 40BHP model with Twin Carbs which is the collectible one. The rest of the car comes in the form of a kit. I’m reliably informed that everything is there with the exception of the Front Wings and headlights. And looking through all the boxes, I'm sure that won’t be far of the truth. I do know for a fact that BMW still list front wings priced at £380 each, but they don’t currently have any stock. All glass comes with the car, front rear and all side glass. The seats have been fully refurbished. The car also comes with a multi-language workshop manual to help any prospective purchaser put the car back together. So the car will need some significant work to rebuild but lots of the hard work has already been done. I've had a BMW Club Member who owns one of these see the car and he told me its a very sound car, with none of the really serious issues showing. Maybe it’s a winter project, it’s certainly got the potential to be a superb little car, and definitely something a bit different in BMW Circles. It’s also one that maybe won’t break the bank to put back together. Complete with CURRENT V5 Registration Document. So the question is, do you fancy a project, something to do over the winter months? Do you fancy something with Italian Style (Michelotti designed the cars) do you fancy something with German Quality, (It’s a BMW) do you fancy something so rare it’s a Top line Marque but built in such low numbers you can’t remember the last time you saw one, if ever?????? And remember this one is right hand drive and a coupe. That makes it the rarest of them all. If you do fancy a project this is the ideal car for you And at only £6500 its bound to be a sure fire investment in years to come. Ask yourself this. When did you last see one!
MGA 1600 1959 Was there ever a prettier, more stylish British Sports Car than the MGA. Superbly stylish, curves to gladden any eye. Chrome beautifully incorporated to highlight all the curves and draw the eyes. This MGA is the Fixed Head Coupe, finished in its original colour scheme of Old English White with red leather interior. Its in absolutely delightful condition. The paintwork shines like it was painted yesterday and the chrome glints with that dark mirror like glow of good quality chrome. This is an older restoration it’s had huge amounts of money spent over the years, but it’s now in the beautiful “Used sparingly and caringly condition” that no amount of restoration can achieve The red leather seats are used, but with a sheen that modern leather can never achieve. The Chrome has been re-plated at some point and not replaced with Chinese Chrome. This is a car for someone to treasure, someone to help it keep its 60 years wearing so beautifully well. The history with the car is superb. It’s had only 4 keepers in its 60 year life span. And with a combination of the Factory Service Book (How many cars from 1959 can say it’s still got that?) and the Original Drivers handbook, the provenance is exceptional. And the bills, invoices and receipts in the car go right back to 1959. We can’t confirm that every single bill ever supplied for the car is there. But there is a massive collection in two ring binder files to confirm work done to the car and the fact that is covered a mere 96600 miles from new. This car has a fabulous provenance with it. We drove it back from its previous keeper, a distance of around 50 miles, and it drives absolutely superbly. So, if you fancy an MGA, this car is an absolute little Gem, and deserves an owner who wants to keep the car and cherish it exactly as it is. This car has that beautifully preserved patina that no recent restoration can ever recreate, its simply stunning. At only £19995 it’s a car to grace any driveway in the country Why not let it grace yours?
MGB Roadster 1972 Manual with Overdrive What can we say about the MGB? Possibly the most iconic Classic British Sports car of our time. More preserved and being used than just about any other Classic Car on Britain’s roads. And do we wonder why? The MGB is probably the easiest Classic car to run and maintain. Very simple to work on, with a vast supply of sensibly priced spare parts available mostly on overnight delivery. In point of fact the parts supply is better then some newer cars. So that’s the practical side of an MGB. However the best thing about the car is its style. The Classic look of a former era. Stunning good looks, comfortable seats with plenty of space inside. And then there is the whole new world an MGB open up for the owner. Wherever you go in an MGB there is always someone wanting to say Hello. Complimenting ou on your car and asking how long you've owned it. Then there are the Motor clubs offering a whole new world of fun and adventures. And this car would offer all of the above and more. This car is finished in British Racing Green one of the two most sought after colours for the Marque. Inside is finished in beautiful Black Leather and the seats have recently been refurbished. The hood is top quality mohair providing excellent weather protection along with stylish good looks. The Periods Minilite style alloy wheels have recently been refurbished and the car stands just right. Paintwork gleams. The chrome just lovely. This is a car that’s been well maintained for many years. The History file with the car is one of the most extensive on any MGB we’ve ever had with bills and invoices going back to 1991. The car looks as though it was rebuilt in around 2002 and has covered less then 20000 miles since then. The latest keeper has continued with the excellent level of maintenance and now the car is in an ideal condition to go to its new keeper. So if you fancy an MGB this one is in very good order and driving well. It will come with 12 months MOT for its new owner even though now it doesn’t need one, and of course it’s a Historic Vehicle, so no charge for the Road Fund License. Go on treat yourself, you know you’ve always wanted one, this car at only £9995 is perfect for high days and holidays and will more than likely still be better than money in the bank!
Vauxhall Astra 3 Door Celebrity.1.3 Manual 1987 Now what can be said about a Vauxhall Astra? For many people it was the means to get around. Nothing fancy, nothing flash, just a set of wheels. The “White Goods” of the motoring world. Vauxhall made thousands of them; however this car is a Vauxhall Astra Celebrity. There were numerous limited edition models on the Mark 2 Astra, but this was one of the rarest made. It’s a Celebrity. These cars were Factory built, and in total only 112 were ever made. Paperwork in the car’s file supports this. The car is based on the Astra S Merit model, but the car came with the following higher spec. Sliding/Tilting Sunroof Rear Spoiler Tinted Glass & Windscreen Shade Blind Electric Clock and Cigar lighter Special White Wheel Covers Driver’s Seat height Adjuster Side Mouldings All White Paintwork Stereo Radio Cassette This little car is in excellent condition as you would imagine when you learn its only had 1 owner from new and has covered only 4500 miles from new. Yes, that’s right, Four Thousand Five Hundred Miles from new. It’s never been welded and never been resprayed. Pretty much been dry stored all its life. The Astra just been re-commissioned and it’s now ready to find its new home. Ok, it’s not a GTE, but it is a 3 door car, and the body shell alone would be worth a lot of money to anyone in the Rally world as of course replacement shells for a 3 Door Astra Rally car are no longer available now. If you are looking for a Vauxhall Astra, you will find it difficult to find one anywhere near as good as this, and at only £7995 it has to be something that can only appreciate as the years go by, particularly when you take into accounts its rarity, and its provenance, 1 owner, and 4500 miles. Find me another!
MGR V8 1995 The MGR V8 was introduced in 1993, as with availability of the MGB Heritage Body shell, the resources were available to create a stunning MG Roadster. Production was limited to around 15 cars per week, and production finished in 1995 when a total of 1983 cars had been produced. 1500 of these stunning motor cars went to Japan, and a significant number have subsequently returned back to the UK, and this car is one of these. Finished in Oxford Blue with Magnolia leather interior, this car is absolutely stunning. The car returned to the UK in 2002 after having covered around 27000kms (16800 Miles) from new. Since its return to the UK the car has had 1 owner and has a very comprehensive history file and completed a further 20,000miles in the UK bringing the total up to around 37000 miles. It is also fitted with Spax Shock absorbers all round and also have the extremely desirable Optimax Chip fitted to improve the amazing driveability of the car. The paint works simply gleams, the leather is almost unmarked. The Woodwork has all been restored and so have the wheels. In fact the car has had some considerable amount of work done by its latest keeper. All wheels Refurbished New Clutch Master and Slave Cylinders Spax Shock Absorbers all round. Reconditioned Steering Rack New Continental Tyres all round Optimax Chip RPi Fuel Regulator & Ignition Module Interior Wood Refurb New Navy Hood. The considerable History file compiled by the latest keeper adds up to over £7300, bringing the car up to the excellent standard it is now. Furthermore a really nice touch is that the car comes with all its handbooks and the tool roll as supplied from new. If you’re looking for an MGR V8, you won’t want to miss out on this one. It is an absolutely stunning car with nice low mileage and excellent maintenance, and at only £21995 could be considered something of a bargain, but more importantly, wouldn’t it look great on your drive?
Mercedes Benz 280SL Auto 1971 The Pagoda Mercedes Benz is an Icon of Classic Motoring. Its stunning looks have made it so since launch in 1963 at the Geneva Motor Show. The model ran until 1971 when it was replaced by the 107 Series SL which was a much larger car. The car we offer for sale here is simply stunning, and is about as near to new as any car could be. Finished in Red with a pale grey leather interior, it’s just out of a massive three year restoration at one of the Country’s leading Mercedes Specialists. Three years is a long time for any restoration, and this car which began its life in the USA was remarkably rot free before work started, however it was stripped mechanically, and taken back to bare metal for a total nut and bolt rebuild. To say this car looks like it’s just left the factory in Stuttgart is almost an understatement. The photographs say more than words ever can as the car is totally stunning. Nothing has been left to chance. The interior, the engine bay, the underside looks brand new, and the paint finish…… I think it’s the best finish I've ever seen. The chrome, what hasn’t been replaced has been re-chromed to the highest standard. The hard top has been fully restored. The Hood is new. Carpets, again all new. I doubt there is a better Pagoda for sale anywhere right now, and at only £89500 has excellent potential for the future. If you are seeking a Pagoda, either to use or as a serious investment then you must not miss this car. It truly is an absolutely stunning example of the Marque.
