This stunning Triumph TR3A was brought over to the UK in 2009 and was subject of a full nut and bolt restoration with some tasteful light modifications. The TR presents beautifully underneath with a stunning chassis and underbody and with only 1000 miles covered since completion the underbody looks fresh and almost as new. The body was removed from the chassis and both were rebuilt to a high standard and the car fully re-painted in Black. New/re-chromed bright work was fitted to the car, as was a brand new mohair hood, weather equipment and a brand new beautiful leather upholstery with high quality carpets tailored to fit. A new set of painted wire wheels and tyres were fitted and the car today presents exceptionally well.
This superbly presented Triumph TR4A IRS is a genuine home market UK car that we sold to a customer in Northern Ireland five years ago. Since we last sold the car it has covered 5000 miles and has been further improved with new leather seats, a re-conditioned radiator and the cylinder head has been subject of a rebuild.Prior to selling the TR4 in 2012 it was owned by a local customer in nearby Thornton Le Dale and came to us as an excellent driving, well presented example that was not in need of any major work. This TR4A IRS is an older restoration but was treated to a full re-paint and freshen up in 2010. From 1987 - 1989 the TR was subject of a full body off rebuild and we have paperwork detailing the work carried out including photos of the bare chassis. The history file also contains invoices dating as far back as the mid 1980's and MOT certificates date back to 1979. From the history file we can see the TR4 was thoroughly re-commissioned mechanically and the engine was fully rebuilt in November 1989 to include new pistons and re-grinding the crankshaft. Since the restoration was completed the TR4 has covered 25,000 miles. The TR4A presents beautifully with lovely bodywork, bri
ANU 407A was built on the 5th November 1963 and finished in Triumph Racing Green with Black trim and hood. The TR was shipped from King George Dock, Kingston upon Hull aboard the vessel 'Bataan' and was then supplied new by Standard Triumph Motor Company Inc, San Francisco, California, USA. This genuine California car was supplied new with overdrive, leather seats, wood veneered facia, wire wheels and still retains its correct original engine is therefore a matching numbers car. The TR4 came over to the UK in 1994 and was comprehensively restored in left hand drive format. We, as Grundy Mack Classic Cars sold the car in 1998 and reported that the car had a recent bottom end engine rebuild. We also commented on the car having excellent paintwork, bodywork and high standard of upholstery. The TR was converted to right hand drive format before coming back to us in 2001 when we sold it to long term regular customer in Driffield who owned the car for sixteen years. The Triumph comes with a comprehensive file of invoices dating back to 1995 and as a result we have evidence to show how well maintained this car has been. Although the car has covered such low mileage in recent years, it has
XAB 106G was first registered on the 1st March 1969 and spent from 1975 to 1988 with one owner in Cheltenham. The Rover changed hands in 1988, staying locally in Cheltenham for another four years. In 1992 the P6 sold to a gentleman in Coventry who owned the car for 21 years, parting with the car in 2013. Early into this long term owners stewardship, the P6 was subject of a major restoration with marque specialists Rovers Return in Lancashire. Paperwork for the 1994 restoration is with the car and work included a major restoration that included cutting out all evident rust. New panels included wheel arches, side member panels, rear splash panels, lower wheel arch panels, new inner and outer D posts, new front inner wing panels, new front and rear door steps and repair sections were fitted to floor sections and inner sills. The front and rear suspension and final drive were removed, prepared and sent for shot blasting and refitted with new link bushes, panhard rod bushes, new diff mounts and bushes and shock absorbers were replaced. Since this major work was carried out the Rover has covered 10,000 miles. Further expenditure since the early to mid 1990's included some re-chroming, a
This beautiful automatic Jaguar XK150 3.4 DHC has arrived with us in excellent order having being subject of a major programme of work in 2013. UWK 398 is a genuine matching numbers car, still retaining the 3.4 litre engine it left the factory with. The Jaguar left the factory in Cream with Red upholstery and was one of just 595 LHD DHC automatic examples ever supplied. UWK 398 was supplied new by Jaguar Cars New York and first registered to D B Ortman. The Jaguar spent 41 years with the same family in the U.S before being sold to the UK with a guarantee from the dealership that the car had only covered a genuine 29000 miles. This XK150 now has a recorded mileage of just 31,500 having had substantial programme of restoration work and some use in the UK since. The car is finished in Cream/Old English White with Red upholstery as it left the factory and presents beautifully with chrome wire wheels and Black mohair hood. In 2013 a Bristol based restoration Company stripped this car to bare metal, carried out any new metal work required and completely re-painted the car in Old English White. The interior was sympathetically restored with original door cards being rebuilt using aged, fa
We last sold this outstanding, matching numbers UK supplied Austin Healey in 2015 and since then it has covered in the region of 2000 miles. Considered by many as the finest and most desirable and sought after of the 3000 range, this car is truly magnificent and does not disappoint in any area. Not only is it presented in wonderful condition having being subject of a highly professional restoration, the car has the provenance of being a genuine RHD UK car still with its original engine fitted and it was supplied new with various options such as overdrive, heater and adjustable steering column. HJL 307F is a very late car built on the 26-27 September 1967 and despatched on the 28th. We have a Heritage Certificate and original green continuation logbook that tells us that the Healey was in the Almondbury area of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire from at least 1970 to 1976. The Healey was then sold to a North West London Company before moving to Leicestershire. During the early 1990's HJL 307F was subject of a major body off ground up rebuild to show standard condition. A major part of the programme of work was carried out by a Lincolnshire specialist who documented 532 hours of work. The
This matching numbers RHD Jaguar E-Type Roadster was last sold by us in 2011. This structurally excellent, first class driver was manufactured on 8th May 1969 and the original distributor was British Leyland, New York. The E-Type spent forty years in the US before being carefully sourced by one of the UK's leading Harley Davidson retailers who then brought the car into the UK. On arrival in the UK in 2009 the E-Type was taken to Jaguar specialists M&C Wilkinson for a professional RHD steering conversion and extensive refurbishment to include full brake overhaul, rear axle assembly removal, powder coating and rebuild, front suspension overhaul and new stainless steel exhaust system and manifold. Invoices for thousands of pounds worth of work are with the car. We collected the E-Type from its first UK owner in 2011 and sold the car to a long term customer who has a collection of four E-Type's. Prior to delivering the car to the Peterborough area, we fitted a brand new mohair hood and removed the engine in order to fit a new clutch. Since being with its second UK owner, the E-Type has covered just a few hundred miles and further improvements fitting triple SU carburettors. HUM 403G is
This stunning 964 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 has covered just 68000 miles and comes to us with an impressive service history. The 911 has been owned for the past six years by a collector based in both Switzerland and Holland. The car was collected by us from a storage depot in Amsterdam and driven back to our North Yorkshire premises faultlessly. This top class car was supplied new by Lancaster Garages Ltd on the 1st August 1989 and sold to a private owner based in West Sussex. In 1992 the Porsche was sold to its second keeper, business owners based in Littlemore, Oxford who kept the car for eight years. In 2000 the car was sold to its third owner, also in Oxfordshire who owned the car for ten years before it changed hands for the fourth time in 21 years to its recent owner overseas. The Porsche comes with its original manuals, leather wallet and service booklet containing fourteen stamps. The supplying dealer serviced the car at 2315 miles, Porsche distributors Malaya of Billinghurst serviced at 7123 miles and Rivervale Porsche serviced the car at 12852 miles in 1991. In 1992 Dick Lovett serviced at 18495 miles and AFN Reading, official Porsche Centre serviced the car at 20,822. The ne

We are delighted to offer this outstanding motor car onto the market. This AC Cobra has incredible looks and as it drives by it can be mistaken for a genuine 1960's period car with its stunning, popular genuine AC Cobra non metallic Black paint finish, expensive registration mark and period style headlamps and rear lights. Whilst the Cobra was originally built in 1994, in 2015/2016 a staggering £19,500 spent taking the car to a truly superb standard. This example is a Dax with Jaguar running gear, Dax Cars were founded in 1968 and started out as a fibreglass moulding company before coming the first British company to make a kit based replica of the AC 427 Cobra. Dax have now been producing these stunning cars for over 30 years and have sold over 4000 kits. Over the years we have had several Dax Cobras and they have all proven to be outstanding cars of very high quality but this has to be the finest we have owned.
The Subaru SVX is a grand tourer coupe that was in production between 1991 and 1996. The SVX made its debut as a concept car at the Tokyo motor show in 1989 and in total 24,379 cars were built. 14257 went to the USA, 2478 were sold in Europe and only around 7000 were built in RHD format including 249 vehicles that sold in Australia. Interestingly, in 1991 a Subaru SVX won the Alcan Winter Rally, a race starting in Seattle to the Arctic circle and back during the early 1990s there was a Subaru SVX PPG pace car. Due to low production numbers, the SVX is quite a rare car in the UK and is quickly gaining modern classic car status. This example was registered new in the UK on the 10 th September 1993 and has had a total of five owners from new. The car has covered 112,000 miles from new and comes with an excellent service. The service book includes stamps at 7939, 14901, 23213, 29720, 77089, 86165, 88592, 94518, 103795 and 110000 miles. Five of the services have been carried out at Subaru main dealerships and three carried out with main dealer Mazda agents. The Subaru also comes with a comprehensive file of invoices for service and maintenance work detailing thousands of pounds worth
757 BOJ was first registered on the 18th May 1960 and spent much of its early life in the Greater London area, based in Eltham, SE9 and later Bushey in Hertfordshire. By 1976 the 'Frogeye' was registered in the North West where it has spent the majority of the past 40 years, moving between Lancaster, Carnforth and the Lake District. We initially brought the 'Frogeye' in through part exchange for a Triumph TR6 in May 2015, collecting it up in the Lake District. We sold the car immediately to one of our regular customers in South Yorkshire and carried out a high level of preparation work to include new track rod ends, new radius arms, rebuilt brake calipers, new rear wheel cylinders, rebuilt rev counter and replacement ammeter, top hose, ignition switch and choke cable.
HST 50N is a car we known for over ten years. This late chrome bumper car was subject of a full Heritage Shell rebuild during the late 1990's and was finished to an exceptionally high standard. Almost twenty years on since rebuild the MG still drives and presents in outstanding condition and paperwork suggests the car has covered 14000 miles since total restoration. Prior to 2007 the MGB was owned by a East Yorkshire based enthusiast and restorer who had taken the car to France during summer months, proving the car ideal for long distance touring. We bought the car in 2007 and it quickly sold unseen to an Aberdeen based customer. The vehicle sold over the telephone, and was later collected and drive faultlessly from North Yorkshire to Aberdeen. During three years of ownership the B was in regular summer use and successfully completed the Hero Scottish Malts Reliability trial. In 2010 HST 50N came back to us in part exchange, making room for a Lotus Elan and the car once again sold fairly quickly, this time heading to West Yorkshire where it has spent the past six years, never missing a beat and proving perfectly reliable. HST 50N so many years on from rebuild has an exceptional, ru
This very original Triumph 2500 TC Saloon has only covered 46000 miles from new. The car still retains its original dealer supplied number plates, windscreen sticker, dealer folder and passport to service book. USC 137R was supplied by Heron Rossleigh in Kirkcaldy, Fife on the 22nd October 1976. The supplying dealer carried out the first two services at 1105 and 3293 miles. Further service stamps in the passport to service book are recorded at 7130, 15250, 21981, 26621 and 28719 miles in 1986. By 1995 the Triumph had covered 32880 miles and the oldest MOT we have is dated 23rd April 1996 with 33146 miles. Between 1996 and 2007 the Triumph covered just 1600 miles but in the past nine years USC 137R has covered almost 11500 miles taking the mileage to almost 46000. We have supplied the car to several customers over recent years, this time the car was driven to us from Norfolk. We previously sold the Triumph to a West Yorkshire based Barrister and prior to that it was driven to us faultlessly from Lancashire. Since first selling the car in 2013 it has covered in the region of 4500 miles. When we originally bought the car in 2013, it was driven to us from Northampton so we are confiden
This outstanding MG TD was manufactured in 1952 and was registered new in the United States of America. The MG was shipped to the UK in 1990 having been in Minnesota and in the 25 years since coming to the UK the MG has covered over 18000 miles. The MG spent from 1990 to 2014 in the South West and has most recently been owned by a long term customer of ours in Peacehaven, East Sussex. Not only has the MG had substantial use over the 25 years in the UK, it was also used for an Exeter investment Company marketing campaign, featuring on the front cover of their brochure and featuring in many newspaper advertisements. YSU 197 has come to us in exceptional condition and has been restored to a very high standard. The first restoration we are aware of was back in 1985-1986 over in the U.S. At this point the car was totally stripped down, re-worked as necessary and totally re-painted. We have a report from the early 1990's confirming the MG had covered around 1500 miles since and was in very good order. All components and parts were replaced or overhauled and it was reported there was no rust visible on the car. We have invoices for various remedial works in the early 1990's and annual mil
Many consider the XK150 Roadster as the ultimate XK with its truly stunning, elegant looks. Jaguar launched the Roadster in 1958 to meet demand from the U.S and today it is the Roadster version that is arguably the most sought after of the whole XK range. This wonderful top class example was supplied new in the U.S by Jaguar Cars New York, despatched on the 1st July 1958. The majority were supplied new in the U.S and this particular car was carefully sourced in Florida by the last owner over seventeen years ago and brought over to the UK for a full body off restoration and conversion to right hand drive. The car was chosen prior to rebuild for several reasons to include being a matching chassis and engine number car, and for the superb original structural condition of the car. We know from the history file that this XK was in regular use in Texas throughout the 1980's and by 1997 was found for sale in the State of Florida. The XK was purchased in need of restoration and was shipped to England where a no expense spared restoration was carried out. Over a six year period the XK was fully stripped down to the bare chassis and subject of a top class rebuild to show condition. The bare
This is a truly unique opportunity to purchase a magnificent original, low mileage Jaguar MKIX. This is without doubt one of the lowest mileage examples in existence having only covered 29000 miles from new. The car was ordered new in special order colour Cotswold Blue with Grey leather upholstery and left the factory with automatic transmission and power steering. The Jaguar was first registered on the 20th October 1960 and has had very few owners from new. 1670 JW had covered just 22712 miles from 1960 to 1986 and since then has covered less than 7000 miles in 30 years. Tax discs and MOT certificates show very low usage during the 1990's and in 1996 at 26000 miles the Jaguar was taken over to the Netherlands. The Jaguar returned to the UK in 2014 having covered almost 3000 miles on the Continent over 18 years. 1670 JW is exactly how a low mileage, original car should be. The leather seats have beautifuly aged, they are nicely creased, retain a lovely patina and have no tears or damage. The original headlining is excellent, the woodwork is superb, the door cards and carpets present well and the car is a true time warp. The car has never in its life been dismantled, the bodywork is
We last sold URF 399G in May 2007 and have maintained it for its lady owner since. Prior to 2007, the MG had one owner from 1994 to 2007 and was subject of a major restoration in 2000. The car had very little use between 2000 and 2007 and since selling the car nine years the MG has covered in the region of 4000 miles. The MG has been based in Whitby since 2007 and has only been driven in good, dry weather. It has hardly had the roof up, and has been enjoyed each summer. Over nine have come to know the car very well, MOT testing and servicing each year. In the region of £5500 has been spent on good quality annual maintenance and some cosmetic improvement. Work includes rebuilding carburettors, new rear exhaust silencer, stripping and cleaning brake calipers, new bump stops, 12 volt battery conversion, lower wishbones, front brake pads, brake shoes, steering universal joint and new spring bushes. The cars most recent service in 2016 included new spark plugs distributor cap, points, rotor arm, condenser, gearbox and engine oil change. The MG was driven back to us from Whitby performing faultlessly. The engine runs beautifully holding excellent oil pressure, the gearbox is slick and th
This beautifully presented MG TF 1250 was supplied new in North America. During the 1980's the MG was shipped to the UK and subject of a top class, professional restoration and right hand drive conversion. The TF was completed by 1989, finished in bright Red with lovely Tan leather upholstery, Beige weather equipment and chrome wire wheels. The car was finished to a high standard and during the 1990's and 2000's has featured at many shows, rallies and events in both England and Wales. The car originally came to us in 2008 having spent many years on the Welsh show scene. The car required very little preparation work and quickly sold to a local MG enthusiast near York. Between 2008 and 2015 the MG has proven totally reliable and has travelled all over North Yorkshire to many classic car shows. Over several years of regular use, the owner spent almost £5,000 on further improvements to include a full engine rebuild. The MG was treated to new main and big end bearings and shells, new camshaft, new pistons and piston ring set, oil pump, cam bearing, re-ground crankshaft and all new gaskets. Further expenditure included regular maintenance. Over the past twelve months the MG has not been
Not only is this a truly exceptional Jensen CV8, it is an incredibly rare, scarce MKI example and a collectors dream. Only 500 Jensen CV8’s were ever built 490 in RHD format but only 69 MKI examples were ever built. The MKI CV8 is unbelievably rare and considering only 99 RHD Gordon Keeble cars were ever built, it puts this car into perspective. The CV8 model has been strongly appreciating and in Europe we have seen examples offered over the £100,000 mark already. The CV8 was a super car of its day, powered by a 305 bhp Chrysler 361ci V8 at first, and later by the 330 bhp 383 engine, it was one of the most wonderful cars of its era with true power, impressive handling, comfort, luxury and of course safety. This is car to drive, and its performance and general feel will totally surprise anyone with little experience of the model. It feels many years ahead of its time, and when 1950’s and 1960’s two door coupe’s with performance nowhere near the CV8 can command over £250,000, it really makes these cars look incredibly good value with lots of opportunity to further rise in value. AOW 305A was first registered on the 24 th May 1963 and the car has spent most of its life in Southern Eng
This is an unrepeatable chance to purchase a 26,700 mile from new Sunbeam Talbot MKIIA in outstanding condition. 9328 H was first registered on the 17th September 1953 to U.P.C Limited, Kingsbury Works, London NW9. Our Talbot comes with its original brown buff logbook, original Sunbeam guarantee booklet, Energol Lubrication booklet and handbook. The car was used by its first owner until September 1957 but was then laid up off the road until 1975. In 1975 the Sunbeam was sold to its second owner who was based in Watford and used the Talbot from July 1975 to July 1976, it was then taken off the road again and sold in 1980 by Sotherby's Auction at Ardingly with 23700 warranted miles. The Talbot was then with one owner who kept the car for over thirty years, using it for two years during the 1980's and putting the car back into hibernation until 2008. In 2008 the Talbot was stripped down to bare metal in preparation for a full top class re-paint. The bright work was sent for re-chroming the wonderful original interior treated to new carpets and headlining. On build up of the body work new rubbers were fitted and photos of the work are with the cars impressive history file. Having being
This ultra-low mileage, low ownership Triumph Spitfire was first registered on the 22nd November 1979. LNO 381V left the factory in Vermillion Red with optional overdrive and a hard top that is still with the car today. The Triumph was registered new in Brentwood, Essex and changed hands within the town to a lady on the 16th October 1988. She kept the car until 2011 but we believe the Spitfire had spent many years off the road. The Triumph was not used from 2011 to the summer of 2015 when it was subject of some basic re-commissioning work. The Triumph was MOT tested but only covered 15 miles from 2015-2016 and the car arrived with us in totally original condition with a mileage of just 25000. On arrival at our Malton Coachworks workshop, the Triumph was checked over and various work was recommended. The vehicle was programmed into the schedule and has since benefitted from a rebuilt gearbox, replacement brake caliper, brake hose, front and rear wheel cylinders, new rear brake shoes, new brake master cylinder, replacement brake fluid, new sump gasket, timing cover gasket, timing cover oil seal, replacement radiator, new fan belt, new thermostat housing, new starter solenoid, windscr
This incredibly rare Slough built RHD Citroen 10 Rosalie was first registered on the 1st September 1934 and still retains its original registration mark and brown ‘buff’ logbook dating back to 1948. From 1948 to 1965 the Rosalie was with one owner in Bournemouth, changing hands locally. The car sold again in 1967, staying in Bournemouth for another 11 years, leaving for Windsor in 1978 having spent 30 years in the same South Coast town. The old style log book confirms the car has always been the same colour combination and it is accompanied by an extensive history file that includes an MOT certificate dating back to 1965. BKL 104 was purchased by the last owner in 1988 and has been subject of some fairly major restoration work over the past 29 years. The body was completely removed from the chassis, the chassis was then painted and the body stripped to bare metal and re-painted. A new fabric roof insert was fitted, the interior re-trimmed with leather upholstery, new door cards, carpets and fur-flexes. The engine was de-coked, instruments overhauled, the petrol tank re-furbished, carburettor serviced, brakes overhauled with new cables fitted, the car re-wired and various new parts
This superbly presented MKI Mini was first registered on the 14th May 1962 and was supplied brand new in White and allocated the registration mark NOO 440. The Mini was first registered to a lady in Enfield who kept the car seventeen years, selling it to a lady in Peterborough in 1979. The second later owner moved to the Norwich area and eventually parted with the car in 1993 and it was sold by a Norfolk based classic car business in 1994 to its third owner, a gentleman based in Glenrothes. The Mini stayed in the same family until 2010 before selling to the most recent owner, also in Fife, Scotland. NOO 440 comes to us with a comprehensive history file containing copies of all logbooks dating back to 1962, various MOT certificates and an invoice file from the 1990's detail a high level of expenditure. Work from this period includes new steering rack boots, cv boots, track rod ends, Halogen headlight kit, new oil pressure switch, plug leads, front and rear brake shoes, brake cylinders, wheel bearings, subframe bushes, handbrake cable, brake hoses, re-conditioned radious arms, knuckle joints and bushes, new rear shock absorbers, thermostat and thermostat housing, new manifold gasket,
We are delighted to offer this unrepeatable opportunity to purchase a very special Daimler Dart that has spent 47 years with the same family, verified by 'The Daimler & Lanchester Owners Club Ltd'. 7751 NC was purchased new by a Manchester City Centre based Insurance Company, L Rigby & Co Ltd, Duchy Chambers, Clarence Street. For the first two years it was driven by Mr Williamson and in 1963 he purchased the Daimler from the firm. The Dart stayed within the same family until 2010, being registered in the Canford Cliffs area of Poole, Dorset with a Miss Williamson from 1989 to 2010. Up to 2010, when it was taken off the road, the Daimler was kept in total original condition and a comprehensive history file details extensive maintenance since the late 1980's from Michael Riley Engineering, a very well respected name in the SP250 World who was also the Bournemouth Branch Secretary of 'The Daimler & Lanchester Owner's Club. For over two decades the Daimler was maintained by the marque expert and this contributed to the fact the car has survived so well considering it had been kept in fairly regular use most of its life. In 2010 the Daimler was sold, having essentially being driven by t
This stunning Jaguar XJ6 has to be the finest example we have had the pleasure of owning. This wonderful motor car has only covered 32000 miles from new. Sony Broadcast Ltd in Hampshire bought the car brand new from Jaguar and for two years the car was used by one of the Company's Managing Directors. In 1993, Sony actually gave the car to the then widow of the former Managing Director as a gift. The vehicle had only covered around 15,000 miles and was only used briefly in 1984 before being dry stored for twelve years. In 1996 one of the owner's sons then put the car back on the road taking the mileage to 24,000 before the car finally sold in 2009. In 1996-1997 over £2000 was spent on re-commissioning which included the replacement of fuel tanks, fuel pump, fuel filter and new exhaust system and in 2008, the Jaguar was treated to some substantial brake work. We sold the Jaguar in 2011 to a local customer has covered 7000 miles in five years, taking the mileage over 32000. During his ownership around £1300 has been spent on maintenance and servicing. The Jaguar has been a delight to own and has essentially been faultless over the five years. On the road the Jaguar is just delightful
This stunning Ice Blue over Cream Austin Healey 3000 MKII was built on the 19th April 1963 and despatched on the 26th April to a New York dealership. PTU 426B was supplied new as a LHD North American Export car with white wall tyres, heater, miles per hour speedo, laminated windscreen, overdrive, adjustable steering column and tonneau cover. We don't know any early history but paperwork confirms the Healey was sold to a Jeweller in Fulton, Missouri in April 1997 who kept the car for nineteen years. By 2015, the long term US owner decided to sell the car in need of restoration and it was exported out of the Port of Houston and arrived in the UK. During 2015 major restoration began with a full body strip down to a rolling shell. The body was professionally restored and painted body colour underneath. A full right hand drive conversion was carried out and the engine was checked, compressions and oil pressure found to be excellent and the gearbox stripped and rebuilt. The engine and gearbox were refitted along with many new ancillaries and the exterior treated to chrome including chrome wire wheels and a brand new hood and refurbished frame. The upholstery was treated to new carpets an
This stunning, fully rebuilt Series I Land Rover 107 was built on the 16th December 1955 and was supplied for the RHD Home Market. VXS 198 was finished Grey from the factory and sold new by Spurling Motor Bodies Ltd, Colchester, Essex. We have a British Motor Industry Heritage Certificate confirming a 2 litre petrol engine was Factory Fitted Equipment and the Label (line) number of the vehicle was 617. The Land Rover has spent the majority of its life in a warm climate, coming back to the UK from Malta during 2016. From paperwork with the vehicle, we believe this Pick Up was exported to Malta in 1964 and has had seven owners before coming back to the UK. During 2016 the Land Rover was shipped back to the UK and has since been MOT tested and re-registered so is now back on UK plates. VXS 198 is beautifully finished and has been subject of a major restoration in Malta. The Land Rover has had very little use since and has come to us in stunning order. The paint finish and bodywork is exceptional, the underside gleaming with a beautiful chassis and underbody. The interior has been fully re-trimmed and the 'Landy' mechanically overhauled. Having not been used since restoration, £2300 ha
ECX 831 was first registered on 1st July 1949 and was supplied new by Ripon Bros, Huddersfield to Edward Haigh (Wool) Ltd of Leeds. We are pleased to confirm the Bentley still retains its original West Yorkshire registration mark and a great deal of originality. The Bentley still has its correct, original 4.25 litre straight six engine and retains its delightfully aged, original leather seats that are presented in very good order. The Bentley records a mileage of 16,000, believed to be 116,000 from new and this would certainly be commensurate with the original upholstery and sound, strong and largely original running gear. This example is an excellent driving car with a real honest feel. The paintwork is bright and presentable and in recent years have been treated to a two tone re-spray in Metallic Dark Blue over Silver.
