This truly wonderful collectors piece, first registered to The Ministry of Public Buildings & Works and believed to have been used by former Prime Minister Harold Wilson during the early 1970s. The Vanden Plas Princess R was first registered on the 2nd October 1967 and supplied new in Ministry Black livery with Gold coachlines and was fitted with rear seat belts from new. SMT 594F was sold by The Ministry in 1978 and was then kept off the road, dry stored in a barn for many years. It was found in a very original state and re-furbished sympathetically keeping as much originality as possible. The VDP first came to us over two years ago and immediately sold to a Worcestershire based private collector who has since kept the vehicle dry stored as part of his impressive collection. It was taken on a tour of the Yorkshire Moors on initial purchase and has since been carefully dry stored. On arrival in early 2015 and at the request of both The Huddersfield Examiner and Classic Car Weekly, SMT 594F was transported to Huddersfield, the birth place of Harold Wilson and photographed next to his statue outside Huddersfield Train Station. The articles and photographs add to an already interestin

This is a truly wonderful find and offers an unrepeatable opportunity. This original Land Rover 109 LWB has covered a genuine 89000 miles and comes with a full history since 1969. Our Land Rover has huge provenance and comes with a fabulous file detailing the vehicles usage, maintenance and interesting stories. It was supplied new in 1968 but soon changed hands and was purchased by five medical students in London and Belfast. OWD 934F was taken to North Africa in 1968 on a University first year summer vacation. Correspondence in the file confirms the Land Rover was a brilliant, reliable vehicle through North Africa and one of the students recalls servicing it twice on the trip, the second being carried out on the beach near Rabat in Morocco. The last meal with the Landy is also recorded, in a lay by near Paris late at night as they had decided to drive through the night to make the early morning ferry back to the UK. Photos and stories from the adventure are present in the history file. The Land Rover presents as a true time warp. Externally the paintwork survives in original condition and looks fabulous. There are certainly blemishes but the externals can only be admired consideri
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 outstanding Mini is an original and genuine Cooper S that is presented in excellent condition. The car was first registered on the 1st April 1971 and has covered just 68,000 miles from new. The recorded mileage is supported by MOT certificates dated from when the car was fifteen years old with 36000 miles and the car comes with a comprehensive file of paperwork.

This large, rare and impressive RHD Chrysler Saloon and has spent the past few years in the impressive classic car collection at the Riga Motor Museum in Latvia. The museum closed in 2013 for re-construction and opens again in 2015 with additional vehicles. The Chrysler has come out of the museum to make way for a replacement vehicle that was purchased from us. Recently, prior to coming over to the UK from Latvia, it was subject of a basic re-commissioning programme and then covered 300 faultless miles. Prior to its time in Latvia, the Chrysler was owned by a Professor in the Netherlands who carried out some improvements to include an interior re-trim and re-paint fifteen years ago. The Chrysler will be UK registered shortly and we are therefore putting it through a UK MOT test. Once this has been done, we will acquire a UK registration mark and the car will be road legal. The Chrysler has come to us as a good, reliable starter and the car runs and drives superbly with a strong straight six engine holding very good oil pressure. Column gear changes are smooth and whilst the brakes need cleaning, the car pulls up very responsively. Steering feels very precise and the car handles ver

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 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.

This stunning original RHD UK supplied Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite MKI was first registered on the 10th July 1959 and has had just four owners from new. The Frogeye spent many years off the road and in 2015 was subject of a total nut and bolt restoration. Since completion the car has covered just 750 miles, 150 of these on the rolling road and it was driven to us from the Wakefield area without hesitation. WXX 707 has had an absolute fortune spent on rebuild; £20,000 has been spent alone on parts before labour. Invoices and photographs are available to support this. £9,000 alone was spent having a brand new Wheeler and Davis Stage 3 bodyshell which includes a new steel bonnet, doors and rear wings. The engine was rebuilt by a race engine builder, John Toovey of Toovey Racing. The gearbox was stripped down and rebuilt by a South Yorkshire specialist and the car built up with a brand new interior, brand new weather equipment, new wiring and electrics. The Frogeye was painted in the ever popular Iris Blue and Dark Blue upholstery has been used offering a lovely combination.

We last sold this stunning, upgraded and enhanced MGB GT to one of our local regular customers three years ago. Since then the MG has covered in the region of 3000 miles and has been a regular attendant at many local shows and events. The GT is well known on the local show circuit and the previous owner, a retired Professor has kept the car superbly maintained and has paid for an extensive waxoyl to protect the structurally excellent underside. Further improvements since 2013 are detailing work to the engine bay, new rocker cover and new upgraded headlamps. Prior to coming to us in 2013, the MG was owned by a long term York based customer for ten years who purchased the car after an extensive restoration. EKH 265J has now covered 15000 miles since having a total restoration in 2003. The MGB GT was sourced in California and shipped to the UK ahead of a programme of work that included various upgrades. The MGB was fitted with a re-conditioned unleaded engine, new clutch, re-conditioned carbs, new water pump, oil cooler and water hoses, a re-conditioned gearbox with overdrive was fitted with new mountings, the rear axle was checked and the propshaft replaced and the brakes totally ove
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
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, 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
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
We are delighted to offer this superbly rebuilt, show winning genuine Morris Minor Series MM Lowlight Tourer onto the market. VMF 203 was supplied new by dealership Stewart and Ardern Limited, despatched on the 12th June 1950 and finished in Romain Green with Beige with Green piped upholstery. The Morris still retains its original ‘buff’ brown logbook confirming the Morris was owned by husband and wife in Essex for over twenty years and it comes with a Heritage Certificate confirming all original records. This first Series (MM) was registered on the 3 rd July 1950 and has the lovely early features such as the low headlights, semaphore indicators and split windscreen. Interestingly, just prior to production, but after a large run of chrome bumpers had already been manufactured, Issignonis the designer decided to widen the vehicle by around 4 inches. The bumpers were therefore cut in half and a short painted spacer plate added, as seen on the rear of this car. The most recent owners purchased the Morris in 2009; prior to this the car had just three previous owners. On initial purchase in 2009 a major, extensive restoration programme was started and this included fully stripping the c
We bought this Land Rover Defender brand new from Rocar Moores, Huddersfield in 2013. The vehicle was ordered new in Corris Grey with Half leather, Winter Pack, upgraded alloy wheels, Bluetooth radio. We covered 49,000 miles in the vehicle; it was maintained by our local Land Rover main agent Hatfields, Pickering and we sold it in early 2016 to one of our regular customers who has covered 5000 faultless miles in it. The ‘Landy’ has now covered 54000 and comes back to us in exceptional condition. Our Defender presents superbly in lovely, original condition with excellent paintwork and bodywork. The interior trim has been kept in smart, clean condition and the vehicle is in excellent mechanical order. YE63 KDZ has always proven perfectly reliable and has mainly covered motorway miles including several trips to France. The Defender is hugely iconic and now production has finally stopped, these vehicles are in high demand, particularly superbly kept one owner examples like this with a high spec.
ACM 288B was manufactured on the 5th May 1964, distributed from Henlys Manchester and was supplied new by Argyle Motors in Birkenhead. This 3.8 FHC was first owned by a Birkenhead based Company Veco Products and today still retains its original Merseyside registration mark ACM 288B. Within the Veco stable of businesses was the ‘Peco’ exhausts brand, which became the highly popular ‘bolt on’ performance brand from the early 1960’s, based from their premises in Sandford Road, Birkenhead. Peco was at the height of its’ popularity in this period and grew to become one of the best established brands in the UK, with a regularity presence in the motoring press. The E Type was registered to the company and quickly became a showcase for Peco’s products and was seen in the June 1968 edition of Hot Car Magazine wearing a pair of twin pipe silencers. We can confirm this lovely, usable example is a matching numbers car, retaining its original engine and many original features including its four speed Moss gearbox. We have found genuine original UK RHD supplied examples with matching numbers incredibly sought after this is a top class driving example that can be used and driven with confidence.
This is another truly wonderful find. NFC 854 has to be one of the most original pre or post war Rovers we have ever owned. The car is remarkably original and has an unrepeatable level of patina. From an old 'buff' logbook copy we know our Rover was in Eastbourne, Sussex in 1962 and in 1977 the Rover was sold to a lady in Eastbourne. In 1985 the car sold to the proprietor of a London Rolls Royce and Bentley repair and restoration specialist, Mike R Berry who owned the car until 2007. What is even more interesting is the fact that our Rover has 24000 miles recorded on the speedometer and MOT certificates accompany the car dating back to 1979 with 18975 miles. This paperwork warrants the fact that NFC 854 has covered 5000 miles in 37 years. 28 previous MOT certificates show the Rover has been covering low annual mileage and having being owned by a restoration specialist, it has been maintained to the highest standards despite covering very low mileage year on year. In 1984 we know the Rover was treated to a new water pump, rebuilt radiator matrix, new thermostat and housing, new cast bottom water outlet, new starter solenoid and carburettor overhaul. The Rover was also treated to new
We are delighted to offer this outstanding Mercedes Benz 280SL Pagoda onto the market. The car was manufactured in December 1970 making this an incredibly late model as production of this model ceased in February 1971. ODH 141J comes with a comprehensive history file with records dating back to when the car was just a few years old. A comprehensive US history details maintenance and restoration work since the 1970’s with just three owners until it came to the UK in 2006. The Pagoda has been with its most recent owner since 2008 and over the past eight years has spent time in both the UK and the Algarve. The Mercedes has covered in the region of 6000 miles since last changing hands and it’s been ideal for keeping in Portugal at the most recent owner’s holiday home. Since coming to the UK, it has been sold by one of the UK's leading Pagoda suppliers who have charged in the region of £10,000 for work carried out in 2008. This included stripping the interior and re-upholstering it, overhauling the air-conditioning system, rectifying oil leaks and fully servicing the car. Whilst out in Portugal in 2009, they also supplied new gearbox shift link bushes, gear selector spring bushes and a
Jaguar E-Type's like this are in high demand. 1655 MF has everything a collector looks for in such a car. This is a genuine UK supplied RHD Home Market car, it is a 'matching numbers' car with a 1989 dated Heritage Certificate to confirm, it still retains its original colour of Opalescent Silver Blue with beautiful original Dark Blue leather upholstery and the car has only covered a genuine 75,000 miles from new. Not only is this an incredibly correct car that has beautiful looks, it is capable of long distance touring and regular use. To prove this, the E-Type was driven 175 miles faultlessly from Dumfries to North Yorkshire and a result has had the perfect endurance test drive. At 3pm on a Sunday afternoon the Jaguar left Dumfries. It quickly warmed up and the temperature gauge didn't rise above one third of the gauge the whole way back. Oil pressure at 60mph on the A75 was recording 60psi and by the time the E-Type had reached the M6 it was cruising comfortably at 3500rpm at 70mph with consistent steady oil pressure at around 55psi. The car pulled effortlessly southbound on the motorway before being driven cross country over the A66. By 5pm the E-Type was pulled up in Thirsk mar
This beautifully presented MG TD has come to us from one of our long term customers in Fife, Scotland. Our customer tends to keep a collection of around two or three classics at one time and likes to occasionally change. The TD was purchased in May 2015 and has very light use since. The MG was covered a few hundred faultless miles and during recent ownership has been serviced including brakes.
This is one of those wonderful finds. Finding a totally original 22,000 mile from new Spitfire, with one owner from 1978 to 2015 is quite unrepeatable. VJA 180S was purchased from H R Owen in Stockport, Cheshire in 1978 and was supplied new in Russet Brown with Beige trim. The car stayed with its first owner until last year and the history file even contains a photo of the long term owner with the car whilst on honeymoon in Scotland from the 1st October to 8th October 1978. In recent years the Triumph has covered very little mileage and in July 2015 at 21,985 miles had almost £1000 of expenditure that included a new fuel pump, exhaust silencer, new rear wheel cylinders, windscreen washer pump and serviced front brakes ready for an MOT test which it passed. Prior to this MOT the Spitfire was off the road for many, many years. Whilst the car is now roadworthy and usable, we will be carrying out further work within the price. Due to flat spots, all four tyres will be replaced, the car will also be treated to new engine mounts, new distributor cap, rotor arm, points, condenser, alternator belts and axle exhaust mountings. The Triumph will also be freshly serviced and supplied with a fu

Since being purchased from a Southern based Healey specialist in 2012, in the region of 1000 faultless miles have been covered and the car has arrived with us in outstanding condition. HTL 133D was subject of a major restoration during the late 1980's/early 1990's. The cylinder head was ported and gas flowed by Queens University Belfast and it is reported that they dyno tested the car at 200BHP at the wheels. The vehicles history file includes a couple of photos showing the car with wings removed and at a stage close to completion and invoices are present for maintenance since restoration totalling in the region of £25,000. A top Healey specialist refurbished the steering system, upgraded the cooling system and in 2003 rebuilt the gearbox and fitted an upgraded overdrive unit. They also fitted a two silencer box straight through BJ8 exhaust syst
