We are pleased to offer this highly upgraded XK140 Special Equipment onto the market. This is a car ideal for regular use or long distance touring and has been equipped with many expensive upgrades that today would cost in the region of £20,000 supplied and fitted. This Jaguar XK has travelled well, starting life in the USA being distributed by Hoffman, New York. The XK was dispatched on the 29th August 1955 and was first owned by an Alberta Steele. In later years the XK was shipped over to Australia and in 2010 subject of a major refurbishment programme and range of impressive upgrades. This XK140 has been fitted with a five speed gearbox and power steering that really enhance the driving experience. Disc brakes have been fitted all round to improve brake efficiency and air-conditioning is in place to improve comfort inside the car. On arrival, this was checked and blows ice cold, certainly something that would be welcomed during summer months and particularly if considering some overseas long distance touring. Further upgrades include an electric boot release, wider wheels with radial tyres and uprated cooling system. Whilst in Australia the Jaguar was also converted to right han
This is an excellent opportunity to buy a fully rebuilt MGB Roadster that has covered only 15 miles since completion. The car is outstanding throughout and has been completely rebuilt by a restoration specialist who had intended to keep the car. The project began in 2010 with the plan for the end result being an MGB better than when it left the factory. Arguably it is indeed that with some nice upgrades to include high torque starter motor, oil cooler and an engine bay and underside that could win shows. Back in 2010 the car was purchased by its recent owner as a stalled project that was part way through a body rebuild using brand new Heritage or Steelcraft panels to include new wings, doors, boot lid, floor pans and sills. On initial purchase the bodyshell was taken to a specialist bodywork restorer and completed to an exceptionally high standard. On completion of the panel work and gap setting, the entire bodyshell was painted inside, outside and underneath. The shell was then re-delivered to its owner ready for a mechanical rebuild, re-trim and re-fit. The project continued into 2011 but then was once again stalled due to business demand and various major restoration projects, m
This beautifully presented low mileage Rolls Royce MPW was purchased new on the 9th August 1969, supplied in Regency Red with Beige leather upholstery by J Barclay. The first owner, a Mr Morrison in Glasgow had the Rolls Royce serviced with local agent’s A & D Fraser Ltd on the 28th August 1969 at 1353 miles, 24th March 1970 at 6199 miles and on the 10th December 1970 at 12208 miles. In June 1971 Rolls Royce Crewe serviced the car at 16000 miles before the car was sold by S.P Broughton & Company Ltd to a Captain Coles in Gloucestershire. S.P Broughton, the Cheltenham main agents maintained the car until 1989, carrying out all MOT’s during the 1980’s and recording servicing at 25439, 31647, 32959, 33812 and 58471 miles. In 2001 the MPW changed hands at 62000 miles and invoices are present from Royce Service and Engineering for over £14,000 between 2004 and 2010 for maintenance and upkeep. This included overhauling the alternator, new windscreen seal and boot seal, new power steering hoses, all new coolant hoses, new thermostat, new manifold gaskets, stripping carburettors and replacing the jet assemblies, various upkeep to brakes and suspension and in 2009 bodywork and paintwork to
This genuine UK supplied overdrive MGB Roadster was first registered on the 5th March 1969 and was subject of a major rebuild in 1990. The MGB was treated to a brand-new Heritage shell, new wings and door skins, and was completely rebuild by a Midlands classic car specialist. Their paperwork states that the panel fit on the completed car was better than the MG Motor Company has ever achieved on their production models. The MG was also mechanically overhauled, the engine and gearbox checked and the brakes and suspension fully overhauled. XPD 388G first came to us in 2011 and has been with one owner since. Mileage since full restoration in 1990 is in the region of 15,000. Prior to marketing the MG, a programme of work costing £10,000 has been carried. After 27 years since the rebuild, it was time to strip the car down again and carry out a full re-paint on the rust-free Heritage shell. The paint finish had begun to show signs of wear and in order to maintain the high restoration standards, our Malton Coachworks facility stripped the MG down to a rolling shell. The engine and all ancillaries were removed and the shell was treated to a full outer re-spray including engine bay and boot.
We are delighted to offer this RHD home market Triumph TR6 PI onto to the market. VBK 696K is a 150 BHP CP chassis number car that was supplied new in Sapphire Blue by Portsmouth Garages Ltd. The car was built on the 24th May 1972 and was supplied new with overdrive, tonneau cover, seat belts and heater. The car has come to us from a North Yorkshire based collector and over the past six years has fulfilled the purpose of being a completely reliable, very usable TR6. Over the past few years a fortune has been spent on mechanical work and whilst the body was restored many years ago, it does present well and has the looks of a car that can be used and really enjoyed. From the history file we can see the TR6 had a major body restoration back in 1987. The car was stripped to a bare shell and Triumph specialists Rimmer Brothers supplied various new body panels for the car. The front wings, inner wings, inner and outer sills were replaced and the car treated to a full re-paint on completion. The gearbox was removed and overdrive completely overhauled and various mechanical work was carried out. Since this major bodywork around 28,000 miles have been covered in the car. Moving onto the lat
This outstanding 5.0 litre TVR Griffith has covered 59000 miles from new and comes with a full-service history. It is finished in Pathfinder Blue with a stunning contrasting Grey and Turquoise leather hide upholstery and has arrived with us in exceptional condition. Although the Griffith model was almost mechanically identical to the Chimaera, it had a different body design and was produced in much smaller numbers. This particular example is also the much more desirable 5 litre version and is incredibly quick offering outstanding performance. The car was first registered on the 18 th October 1996 and supplied new by Christopher Neil Ltd in Cheshire. The TVR comes with its original handbook with service history containing fourteen stamps. The cars first service was carried out by TVR Engineering Ltd in Blackpool at 1300 miles and the following four services at 2495, 7643, 11392 and 17277 were carried out by a Chichester based sports and classics dealership. TVR, Fenhurst Motor Co in Haslemere then serviced the car at 21957, 28780 and 31982 before another TVR specialist serviced the car at 37497 miles in 2003. In 2004 V8 developments supplied a high torque clutch and maintenance in 2
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 and in early 2016 sold it to one of our long term regular customers. The Defender was maintained by our local Land Rover main agent Hatfields, Pickering and prior to selling it in 2016 was fully serviced. The vehicle has come back to us in part exchange, now with 56,000 warranted miles and in exactly the same condition as when we first sold it. 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. On arrival back with us, the Defender was immediatley in use being driven on a 500 mile round trip to Northern Ireland via Cairnryan performing perfectly as always. The Defender is hugely iconic and now production has ceased, these vehicles are in high demand, particuarly superbly low
We have known SBD 453 for over 15 years and it is a car we know very well with a proven track record for outstanding performance and reliability. This particularly quick XK was upgraded to S Specification during a mid-1980’s restoration and we know from previous MOT certificates the XK has covered in the region of 15,000 miles since 1997. SBD 453 was first registered on the 19th September 1958 and is a genuine UK supplied matching numbers car with the exception if its uprated 3.8 cylinder head. The XK150 FHC was dispatched from Henlys Limited, London on the 16th September and the first owner hasn’t been recorded according to the Jaguar Heritage Trust. From a ‘buff’ logbook issued in 1963 we know the car was in the London Borough of Hounslow until 1969, it changed hands and was briefly in Croydon before heading South to Chichester in Sussex. The XK then spent several years off the road, purchased by a long-term owner in Edinburgh during the early 1980’s who then commissioned a major restoration. On the road SBD 453 is truly outstanding and is a very fast car. The engine holds excellent oil pressure, pulls incredibly well and is in strong condition with a delightful roar. The four sp
We are delighted to offer this magnificent motor car onto the market. This very special S Series Continental with H.J Mulliner coachbuilt body is the first variant of its type and is finished in a beautiful colour of Seychelles Blue with Blue leather upholstery. Interestingly, although the car now is equipped with an automatic transmission, it did leave the factory with a manual gearbox and its believed only four examples in the S1 Continental Flying Spur range were ever built with this option. We can confirm also that this 1 of just 19 ‘D’ Series Flying Spur’s in a total of 167 RHD examples built to Design number 7443. 603 HYP was registered new on the 7 th December 1957 and was supplied in London W1 to the Chairman of a private bank, Brown, Shipley & Co. The Bentley was purchased by Mr Angus MacKinnon Esq as a present for his wife, housed at their Hampshire based property. The Bentley six-light sports saloon was later sold on the 28 th October 1960 to Berkley Square Garages, Berkley Square, London W1. The Rolls Royce Bentley dealership supplied the car to Adams & Adams Ltd of New Malden, Surrey two years later. 603 HYP changed hands again in 1964, this time spending 19 years with
This beautiful LWB without division example has covered just 88000 miles from new and was first owned by Rolls Royce dealership Jack Barclay Ltd, 18-19 Berkeley Square, London. The original service book confirms Jack Barclay Ltd delivered the car to the first owner, Jack Barclay Ltd and the car spent its early life in London being serviced by Rolls Royce Motors Limited at 1060, 3134, 9019, 13331, 17717, 23415, 26131, 32601 and at 36008 in 1979.
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
We are delighted to offer this outstanding Triumph TR6 onto the market. VRW 897J is a genuine UK home market CP chassis number 150BHP car with overdrive and an interesting early history. The TR6 was built on the 7th July 1970 as a home market car, registered new with its current registration mark VRW 897J in Coventry and then exported under the Home Delivery Export scheme to the British Embassy, Rabat in Morocco. The TR6 is a matching numbers car and was supplied new with overdrive, oil cooler, laminated windscreen, tonneau cover, heater, seat belts and Kenlowe fan. The car has been with its last owner for 16 years and it comes with a comprehensive history detailing major restoration work. There are three significant years for the TR6, first of all 1985 when it was subject of a body off rebuild by West London classic car specialist British Sportscar Centre. The car spent the 1980's. and 1990's with one owner, a Doctor who was based in Fulham and later Putney before moving north to Cheshire in the 1990's. The next significant point in the cars history was a restoration completed by Cheshire based TR specialists TR Bitz in 1999 and after 18 years and just 5000 miles, in 2017 the car
This charming little 100E came in part exchange from the previous owner who owned the car for 24 years. Prior to this the car was part of ‘The Patrick Collection’ as a museum piece. The vehicle has been owned (with the exception of 2 short term keepers) by 3 long term owners. In the history file is a lovely letter from the first owner who had the car from new until 1982. The lady goes on to say that she believed the car to be the last Popular deluxe produced, if not, certainly the last week of production and that when she sold it in 1982 the car had only covered 8,500 miles.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia (Type 105) is a sports saloon that was in production from 1962 to 1978. Alfa Romeo was one of the first manufacturers to put a powerful engine in a light-weight car for mainstream production. The Giulia weighed about 1,000 kilograms and the car was equipped with a light alloy twin overhead camshaft four-cylinder engine, similar to that of the earlier Giulietta models range. Engine capacities offered were 1290cc or 1570cc and the example we are offering is the 1290cc. Various configurations of carburettors and tuning produced power outputs from about 80 to about 110 bhp and almost all Giulias made had a 5-speed manual transmission. Giulias were noted for their lively performance among saloons of that era, especially considering the modest engine size. The styling was quite straight forward, but with a great amount of detail. The engine bay and boot were all square shaped and the grill, the rooflines and details on the bonnet and boot made for an integrated design from bumper to bumper. Thanks to Alfa Romeo using a wind tunnel during its development, the Giulia was very aerodynamic with a drag coefficient of Cd=0.34, which was particularly low for a saloon of th
This stunning Land Rover Defender was supplied new by our local dealership Hatfields in Pickering. The Defender has had just one owner and has covered 9350 miles from new. The Defender has been owned by a Hotel on the West Coast of Scotland and due to lack of use has come back to Yorkshire to be sold. As the Land Rover was bought new by a business, 20% of our asking price can be re-claimed should it be purchased through a Company (£39995 is VAT inclusive).
This beautiful low mileage Charlesworth bodied Alvis Speed 20 left the factory on the 20th March 1934. The Alvis was sold new by Brooklands Motor Company and first registered on the 3rd July 1934 in Liverpool, allocated the registration mark LV 9363. On the 24th March 1938 the car changed hands for the first time and the Alvis was last taxed by its second owner in March 1956. LV 9363 then spent forty-one years off the road having been found during the 1990’s by its third owner. A sympathetic body off restoration was carried out where as much originality was retained as possible. A fine balance between restoration and conservation was found and demonstrated, and the Alvis then put back on the road and MOT tested in 1997 with a mileage of 34488. The Alvis was supplied new with the ‘Charlesworth' body, said by many to be one of the most elegant. The Alvis also has the provenance of retaining its original engine and is a matching numbers car. Information in the history file also confirms the car was on parade at Buckingham Palace for the 80 th Birthday Celebrations for Her Majesty The Queen. Between 1997 and 2013 the Alvis covered in the region of 7000 miles and then sold to an Alvis c
This stunning metallic Light Blue XK8 Coupe was supplied new by Stratstone of Mayfair, Park Lane, London on 4th March 2002. The first four services were carried out by Guy Salmon Jaguar, North London at 9323, 20669, 30448 and 40276 miles and the dealership changed hands to HR Owen prior to the Jaguar being serviced for the fifth time at 49184 miles. Jaguar dealership Hatfields of Sheffield serviced the car at 59618 miles and since then the car has been maintained by various garages that have stamped the service book at 69904, 82149 and 87104 miles. We sold the car the last owner, a classic car enthusiast in Lincolnshire and serviced the car at 91,000 prior to his ownership. In three years the XK8 has performed faultlessly, has been completely reliable and has covered 9000 miles. The car has come back to us in part exchange against an XK8 Convertible and the V5 now records four former keepers and is HPI clear. It comes with its original handbooks, manuals, current road tax and advisory free MOT certificate. The Jaguar was driven to us from Matlock, Derbyshire when it came to us for the first time in 2014. Three years later it has driven to us from Market Rasen and has arrived in exc
FFY 579 was first registered on the 18th June 1947 and is the highly desirable six cylinder model, the P2 16. The Rover was purchased by its last owners in 2016 and has been in regular weekend use. The car has spent some time on the show scene and has proven completely usable and reliable. The Rover has been based in Warrington, has been driven to various events in Cheshire and the surrounding areas. Our P2 has proven very easy to own in terms of it not needing any major work and not causing its recent owner any trouble whatsoever. The Rover has been slowly improved and parts invoices since 2016 include new coolant hoses, brake light switch, contact breaker points, fan belt new condenser and ignition key. The Rover drives particularly well with a strong six cylinder engine holding very good oil pressure. The gearbox is strong and changes up and down the gearbox smoothly and the car is very pleasant to drive with good braking, handling and steering. FFY 579 presents well with smart, bright Black paintwork and good chrome work. The body is structurally very impressive and the paint finish on the car is of a good standard. The interior trim looks well with re-trimmed front seats, orig
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 Aston Martin DB11 5.2 Launch Edition was registered in June 2017 and supplied to its one owner by JCT 600 Ltd - Brooklands, Leeds. The car is quite unique in having an absolutely top spec, costing just a few pounds under £187,000. Finished in Magnetic Silver with Tan leather, the DB11 has only covered 3100 miles and is totally immaculate and as new.
This magnificent UK supplied Ferrari 365/GTB4 Daytona has covered just 19,350 miles from new and comes with an excellent history to include original bill of sale and official Ferrari Certificazione di authenticita. This is an absolutely unrepeatable opportunity to buy not only a rare RHD example, but a car with exceptionally low mileage.
AOT 608 was first registered on the 23rd October 1935 and is a Series One Four Seat Tourer. From the old brown buff logbook still with the car, we know the Morris spent the early and mid 1960's with various owners in Middlesex and Surrey. In 1967 the car moved to Northampton where it spent 49 years. We have an MOT certificate from 1976 but then the Morris spent 40 years in a private collection and was not used on the road until very recently.
This stunning MGB Roadster has been subject of a full Heritage shell rebuild and has been driven over to us in excellent order. The car has been with one of our regular customers on the East Coast and has had some serious detailing work carried out over the summer. Now retired, the most recent owner has spent a career working on cars and has gone right through this MG with a keen eye for detail. Since preparing the car to his high standards, it has performed perfectly being used on a regular basis for some summer touring on Yorkshire roads.
This original RHD Triumph TR5 PI was built on 17th May 1968 and supplied new in Signal Red with Black Ambla upholstery. The car was fitted with overdrive, heater, tonneau cover and is a genuine home market UK car. When new, the car was subject of a Home Delivery Export Scheme and the vehicle's first owner was Mr H.G Beth in Sweden. The TR5 has spent almost its entire life in Sweden and was brought back into the UK in 2015 by a UK citizen working for Volvo in Sweden. We sold this lovely useable example to the Deputy Chairman of a prominent Yorkshire Construction Company in 2015. In two years of ownership the TR has proven completely reliable and has successfully carried out some long distance touring in France, covering 1300 miles for the Dijon Classic. Prior to delivering the car we thoroughly prepared the car in our Malton Coachworks workshop. JSA 354G was treated to new rear sub frame top mounts, new headlamps, rear brake shoes, hand brake arms and front brake pads. Upper ball joint bolts were replaced as were exhaust mountings, wipers, the rocker cover gasket and the accelerator cable, control cable, air control knob and heat control knob were also replaced with new. A new spare
This superb driving Ford 289 V8 Mustang Fastback has been with its most recent owner since the beginning of 2017 and has had over £8,000 spent over the year. Work includes re-trimming door cards and seats, fitting a Master Power front brake disc conversion kit, new correct steering wheel, Halogen headlamp conversion, new fuel tank sender seal, radio with iPod, a new set of BF Goodrich tyres and work to the carburettor and throttle and gearbox control linkage. The Ford has had all work carried out with local specialists in the Malton area and it’s been driven over to us absolutely on the button, and ready to use and enjoy. The Mustang appears very honest and original and is still in its original colour of Ivy Green. From de-coding the numbers on the car, we know this was the original factory colour, as was the trim which is finished in Ivy Gold. The Mustang was built at Dearborn and is a genuine Fastback 289 with C4 automatic gearbox and 2.80:1 axle ratio. In January 2015 this Ford was registered in the United Kingdom and has covered around 1200 miles. HVK 314C presents very well with a lovely paint finish.

This superb driving MG TD has recently had £6,000 spent on mechanical work to include a full gearbox rebuild, brand new clutch, new headlights, new rear brake shoes, two front brake hoses, new rear axle oil seals, new timing cover gasket and seals and new sump gasket. The front end of the engine was stripped to ensure no oil leaks and the car has been serviced with fresh oil, new spark plugs and brake fluid replaced. Other expenditure last year includes over £3,000 of specialist trimming work to include a new hood, new sidescreens and full tonneau cover. This TD was brought to the UK from Texas, USA in 2013 and was purchased by a UK enthusiast. The MG was already in RHD format over in the USA and was been subject of various restoration work prior to coming over to the UK. The body was taken down to bare metal and re-painted and the wood frame re-conditioned with various new wood sections. The interior was treated to new carpets, door cards and seats are in excellent order. The dashboard is excellent and all gauges work and are in excellent order. The 1250cc engine has been stripped, rebuilt and converted to run on unleaded fuel. The carburettor was rebuilt, as was the distributor a
This excellent driving Lotus Elan Plus Two has been with a classic car enthusiast who lives in our local village (West Knapton) for the past six years. We’ve seen the car being driven out over summer months and it’s always proven totally reliable. Over the six years it has been serviced by a local Jaguar specialist and has cost very little maintain. The Elan has just covered a few hundred miles per year during recent ownership and has done around 7000 miles since complete rebuild between 2003-2008. The car was subject of a five year rebuild having spent eighteen years off the road. The car was rebuilt on a brand new Spyder chassis and still retains its original engine and gearbox which have both been rebuilt. For reliability, a Burton Cartridge water pump was fitted along with QED pistons, electronic ignition, high torque starter and in improved radiator with electric fan. The Lotus was fully re-wired with two new looms to accept modern fuses and relays, a new alternator fitted and a very expensive stainless steel manifold was handmade and fitted. The Lotus was also treated to new galvanised inner sills, Sue Miller solid drive shafts and Tony Thompson Racing adjustable front suspen
We sold this incredibly rare motor car in 2011 to a relatively local customer who has 50 years of business experience in the engineering sector. He has been totally meticulous with the Durant, taking it to an exceptionally high standard spending £35,000 on the car during his six years of ownership. The Durant has covered 3400 faultless miles during his ownership, the headline trip being a 1500 mile journey to Angouleme in Bordeaux and back for the cars 90th birthday. The Durant is in exceptional condition and is totally reliable and ready to go. Expenditure on the Star includes over £6,000 on re-upholstery work, £9,000 on bodywork and paintwork and major mechanical work to the engine, rear axle and fuel system (re-conditioning auto-vac). Further works includes new windscreen glass, re-lined clutch, re-cored radiator and huge lists of detail mechanical works are detailed on the £35,000 of invoices. As a result of the careful ownership and improvements carried out, this is a wonderful opportunity to own a pre-war car that really has been prepared with no expense spared. On the road the Star is lovely to drive with lots of power and a smooth gearbox and axle and besides its long trip
This stunning Triumph 1800 Roadster has just arrived with having being subject some light restoration work.
