HAVING NO MOTOR IN IT I DECIDED TO FIT AN S54 OUT OF A 2003 E46 M3. THIS WAS FAIRLY PLUG AND PLAY IN TERMS OF THE MECHANICALS BUT WAS A TECHNICAL JOB TO COMPLETE THE ELECTRONICS SIDE OF THE SWAP. I HAD THE CAR TRANSPORTED DOWN THE ERGEN MOTORSPORT IN PORTSMOUTH WHO ARE WELL KNOWN AND RESPECTED WITHIN THE BMW COMMUNITY FOR THEIR EXPERTISE IN FITTING ANY BMW ENGINE TO ANY CAR, WITH THE S54 BEING THEIR SPECIALITY. THEY WIRED, PLUMBED AND TUNED THE ENGINE SETUP USING ALL BMW OEM CONNECTORS, SENSORS, AND HARDWARE. A BRIEF MECHANICAL SPEC IS AS FOLLOWS: -M3-SPEC S54 ENGINE (343BHP AS STANDARD). THE ENGINE ONLY HAS 64,000 MILES ON IT. -BOTTOM END BEARINGS UPGRADED TO LOW FRICTION RACE BEARINGS. THE ENGINE WAS OUT SO I THOUGHT IT TO BE GOOD PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE TO HAVE THE BEARINGS REPLACED AS THESE CAN BE A WEAK POINT ON THESE HIGH-REVVING ENGINES.

The matching numbers F-Type now offered is an extensively restored example with alloy 'Threesome Sports' body by Stiles - the 'Threesome' moniker referring to the layout of two front seats plus dickey. The distinctive design was penned by Frederick Stiles, who had been the British concessionaire and racing team manager for Alfa Romeo and commissioned some 30 such bodies from renowned coachbuilder James Young. Only five of these Stiles-bodied F-Types are known to have survived, of which the sale car is chassis F1286. It was delivered new on July 4th, 1932 to a Mr. A L Watson of London. In 1999 it was acquired as a restoration project by a Dutchman who proceeded to refurbish it to a very high standard between 2002 and 2010. The bodywork, Dark Blue paintwork, Grey-painted wire wheels, Grey interior trim and four-speed manual gearbox are all in 'excellent' order. The straight-six engine has recently been the subject of an extensive overhaul by a well-known Dutch MG specialist. The F-Type Magna range was only produced between 1931 and 1932 and was created to fill the evident gap that existed between the very affordable M-Type Midget and the far dearer 18/80 range of cars. It was effectively a six-cylinder, longer wheelbase version of the four-cylinder D-Type launched at the same time, and therefore featured a newly designed, riveted steel chassis with sliding trunnion suspension, underslung rear axle and centre-lock wire wheels. Though supposedly new, the 1271cc engine was in fact an extended version of the Wolseley Hornet unit, but equipped with dummy side covers in order to appear to be of fresh design. Its power output was 37.2bhp and it drove to the rear wheels via a straight-cut ENV gearbox. In hood-down guise, the Magna was capable of 72mph-plus flat out.

BETTER EQUIPPED THAN MANY CARS TWICE ITS SIZE, THE FIAT 500 C SOON BECAME NICKNAMED ‘TOPOLINO’. THE NAME “TOPOLINO” TRANSLATES LITERALLY AS “LITTLE MOUSE” IN ITALIAN, BUT IS ALSO THE ITALIAN NAME FOR MICKEY MOUSE. THE 500C WAS AVAILABLE AS A TWO-DOOR COUPE AS WELL AS A COUPE WITH A FULL SUNROOF CALLED THE ‘CABRIOLET’ AND A THREE-DOOR STATION WAGON. THE FIRST WAGON, A 500B, WAS CALLED THE ‘GIARDINIERA’ AND WAS A TRADITIONAL WOODIE. IN 1951, IT WAS JOINED BY THE ALL-STEEL BELVEDERE. THE TOPOLINO HAS AN INDEPENDENT FRONT SUSPENSION, FOUR-SPEED TRANSMISSION WITH 3RD AND 4TH GEAR SYNCHROMESH AND HYDRAULIC BRAKES. TOP SPEED WAS IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD OF 56 MPH. THIS TOPILINO BELVEDERE HAS A WONDERFUL STORY TO ITS NAME, 10 YEARS AGO ALBERTO VALSTRONA HAD JUST CELEBRATED HIS 75TH BIRTHDAY AND WANTED TO WORK AT A PROJECT WHICH PROVES HIS TECHNICAL SKILLS. WITH FANTASTIC MEMORIES DRIVING AROUND THE NEARBY LAKE D’ORTA IN A FIAT TOPILINO HE OWNED MANY YEARS PREVIOUS, HIS SEARCH BEGAN TO FIND A SUITABLE CAR TO RESTORE. AFTER REJECTING SEVERAL, ALBERTO SOON FOUND THIS 1954 EXAMPLE, THE FIAT WAS SOLID, COMPLETE AND VERY ORIGINAL… IT WAS THE PERFECT STARTING POINT. THE PICTURES OF THE UNDER CARRIAGE SHOW THE RESTORER GAVE ALL DETAILS EXTRAORDINARY ATTENTION. AFTER MORE THAN TWO YEARS, THE CAR WAS READY AND ALBERTO WAS ABLE TO ENJOY THE ROADS OF LAKE D’ORTA ONCE MORE. HAVING RECEIVED A FULL BODY OFF RESTORATION, THE FILE CONTAINS NUMEROUS PHOTOS OF THE WHOLE RESTORATION PROCESS. THE 569CC, FOUR-CYLINDER, SIDE VALVE MOTOR PRODUCED A MODEST 13BHP BUT AS THE TOPOLINO WEIGHED LITTLE MORE THAN HALF A TON IT COULD NEVERTHELESS MANAGE A RESPECTABLE 50MPH-PLUS UNDER FAVOURABLE CONDITIONS. FOR MOST BUYERS THOUGH, THE (UP-TO-50MPG) FUEL CONSUMPTION WOULD HAVE BEEN THE MAJOR ATTRACTION. OUR BEAUTIFUL LITTLE FIAT IS FINISHED IN A FABULOUS COMBINATION OF TWO-TONE GREY WITH BROWN LEATHER SEATS. IT IS AN ENJOYABLE DAILY DRIVER THAT WORKS ON THE BUTTON, HAVING ONLY COMPLETED 1,560 MILES SINCE RESTORATION. THE FEELING WHILE DRIVING IS MAYBE ONLY UNDERSTOOD BY A TRUE ENTHUSIAST. DESPITE ITS SMALL SIZE AND LOW POWER THE TOPOLINO GIVES A FEELING OF FREEDOM, WHICH IS FURTHER ENHANCED BY THE FULL OPEN ROOF. PERFECT FOR THE LONG SUMMER, THIS IS A WONDERFUL CAR TO BE AROUND AND IS SURE TO ATTRACT LOTS OF ADMIRING ATTENTION. FOR THE FANS OF THE FAMOUS MILLE MIGLIA: THE CAR IS ELIGIBLE FOR THIS GREAT ITALIAN EVENT AND THE CHEAPEST POSSIBILITY TO TAKE PART!

This astonishingly original right hand drive Mercedes 250 Coupe is such a car, being in perfect working order. Sparingly used and as a consequence, the odometer now shows just 50K miles, a total which seems completely plausible, given its supporting history and in the way in which it drives – actually perfectly, plus it is light, tight and responsive. This is a matching numbers car and remains original to its factory specification. The body is arrow-straight with exemplary panel gaps and presents beautifully. The exterior fittings and abundant chrome trim are in superb condition and its further complement by its original and rare factory sunroof. The windscreen is unblemished, as is all the remaining original window glass and corresponding rubber seals. The interior is remarkably preserved with dark blue leather seats, immaculate walnut dashboard and headcloth. The comprehensive instruments, heating and lighting controls are complete and fully functioning as you would expect from a German car of this quality. Pleasingly the cabin retains the original period radio player and speakers which remain in good working order. The Mercedes engine starts on the button, idles consistently and with ample power on tap, pulls the large coupe along with ease. The automatic gearbox is precise and shifting is easy, quiet and smooth making this the 60’s version of grace, pace and space. In line with its pampered past a recent and comprehensive engine service has just been completed. It is shod with five brand new period whitewall tyres, which suit the chassis perfectly, giving it a compliant and comfortable ride plus tenuous grip; something I can attest to, having driven her countless shake-down miles in the last month. The mercedes will have a current 12 months MOT and includes the original and stamped service book. The owner’s handbook, radio and maintenance provenance are present in the car’s folder along with original sales brochures. In summary a rare Mercedes, beautifully preserved and ready for many more miles of reliable nostalgic 1960’s motoring. The Mercedes 1960’s 250 SEB Coupes have become in huge demand over the last few years and are one of the highest climbers in the Classic car market.

It was not as usual an international automobile show, this time it was the opening of the Daimler-Benz Museum in Stuttgart-Untertürkheim on Feb. 24th, 1961 and the celebration of the company’s 75th anniversary. With its pillar-less side glass, a hallmark of almost all coupes coming out of Stuttgart in future, and wraparound front and rear windows, the car was a statement of exquisite taste and should remain in production till 1971. The cabriolet was launched a little later at the Frankfurt International Automobile Show in September 1961. The chassis had to be strengthened on the sides due to the coupe’s pillar-less design. Both sedan and coupe had roughly the same length, but the coupe was 5 cm (2 in) wider and 8.5 cm (3.3 in) lower. Next to chassis and engine, the only other parts that were shared with the sedan were the head lights and the radiator grille. Powered by a silky smooth six cylinder engine the car is capable of over 100mph and keeps up with modern traffic with ease. The luggage area was huge for a coupe and the interior generous for a two-door vehicle. Seats were thick, wide and covered with leather. From the beginning the coupe had an aura of class and dignity and for the first time it was possible to travel in a Mercedes coupe with four passengers in comfort. The interior of the car was a feast for the eyes (and the nose). Not only the seats were covered with top quality leather, also the door trim, the dashboard cover, the rear shelf and even the inside of the glove compartment used the same material. The dashboard fascia, the instrument housing and the loudspeaker cover were made of wood. Like in the Ponton coupe models one could choose between walnut, macassar or burl walnut veneer. The instrument-layout was a departure from the sedan version, it was copied from the 300SL roadster, with speedometer and odometer to the left and right and secondary instruments for oil-pressure, fuel and water in the centre. The cabriolet had been developed in the tradition of Daimler-Benz to offer a special and elegant open top two-door version of their six-cylinder executive cars. Although they were produced alongside the sedans, many parts had been manually assembled, so that one can say these cars were the last hand built cars of Daimler-Benz, taken the 600 aside. They offered a quality unmatched by its rivals and even successors.
