Description The XK120 was launched in roadster form at the 1948 London Motor Show as a test bed and show car for the new Jaguar XK engine and caused a sensation persuading William Lyons to put it in production. The name ‘120’ name referred to its top speed, which made it the world’s fastest standard production car at the time of it’s launch. It was available in two convertible versions; first as a roadster, then also as a drophead coupe from 1951. The iconic shape of the XK120 roadster sustains the car’s constant appreciation by classic car enthusiasts. They are eminently usable motorcars and understandably much coveted. Extremely robust, wonderfully reliable and infinitely eye-catching; they are, understandably, one of the most collectable motorcars available today. Manufactured on the 24th November 1953 and dispatched to the Jaguar dealer in Los Angeles, the car was repatriated in 2003, in need of restoration. The body was removed and the car totally rebuilt mechanically including the fitment of a five-speed gearbox, disc brakes all-around and an electric cooling fan. The body was then restored to a high stand and the interior re-trimmed using top-quality leather. The net result
Description Having spent most of its life in the States, this 1969 Mercedes 280SL Pagoda was in a remarkably rust free state – one of the best we’ve ever seen, in fact. Residing in a dry state meant the car was able to avoid the rust problems that often plague classic Mercedes of this era, and we were astonished by the originality of the shell. There were no signs of previous accident damage or previous welding, and even the smallest details were still correct to how they would’ve left the production line – the original seams and spot welds, for example, are still visible; details which are often masked by previous paintwork and body repairs. Taking all these original features into account meant it was quite possibly the best 280SL Pagoda shell we’d ever come across. With the car’s previous owner having spent a considerable sum with us on a full body restoration, repaint in DB180 Silver, full conversion to European spec, new hood and partial interior re-trim, in addition to numerous smaller improvements throughout the car, we relished the opportunity to add it to our stock, as we know the car intimately. The restoration is fully documented with over 400 images, which will be suppli
Description This particular DB4 Series 2 is on the market for the first time in nearly 40 years, with the previous owner, Mr D Banton, having bought the car in December of 1976 and has just undergone a complete restoration through ourselves. DB4/449/R was first registered on the 17th November 1960 where it was sold to a Mrs N Cotton of Bournemouth, then sold to a Mr S Dicks of London in 1965, whereupon it was sold to Mr Richard Butt of Grays who subsequently sold it to his brother, a Mr (Roger) Butt who kept the car until 1976. Mr D Banton used the car regularly in and around London and perhaps more fitting for a car of this style, slightly further afield with trips across Europe to the French Alps for skiing holidays. In 1983 Mr D Banton sent the car for a full bare metal respray, keeping the original colour of Dubonnet Red. Other work includes receipts in the history file dating back to 1976 with hand written invoices from Ian Moss, Aston Martin specialists. Further maintenance was carried out in the late 70’s with bills from Aston Martin and Aston specialist Hyde Vale and later in 1996 with Ian Moss once again.

Description This is an excellent example of a very rare variant of the iconic Jaguar XJS. In 1992, Jaguar closed the department tasked with manufacturing the ultra luxurious, hand-made Daimler DS420. This left their craftsman facing redundancy unless their skills were used elsewhere – hence ‘Insignia’ was born. This was a bespoke service, allowing prospective buyers to specify an XJ40 or an XJS in various unique colours that were created for the Insignia Collection. You could also specify the trim, wood, wheels etc. – an opportunity to create a vehicle tailored specifically to you. This particular car is one of the best around, having been specced with the majority of the options that were available. Although Jaguar were planning to produce around 200 XJS Insignias, in fact, only 57 were ever produced. Of those, only 7 of the four litre straight six coupes were RHD. This car is one of them, and 1 of 1 in this particular colourway – it is truly unique. A 1993 model, presented in Jaguar Lavender metallic with Lotus white leather interior, and having covered only 48,000 miles – remarkably low for its age – the car is in stunning condition. Without question, one of the most rust free,

Description The Triumph TR3 was built between 1955 and 1957 during which time only 1286 cars were produced for the home market. According to the TR Register, as of 2002, there remains only 893 registered TR3/3A’s on UK roads. The TR3-B is an unofficial name given nowadays to the final version of the TR3 which was produced in 1962. It was offered concurrent with the TR4 which started production in 1961 and was a special short-production run in response to dealer concerns that the buying public might not welcome the TR4. It had the body of the later TR3-A and two series were produced, one with a commission number preceeded by ‘TSF’ of which 530 were produced and one with commission numbers preceeded by the TCF of which 2,804 were produced. The TSF series were identical to the last run of TR3A’s and the TCF series had the 2.2 litre, TR4 engine. It also had different headlight rims, a wider grille and door handles. This stunning example has been totally restored in 2013 with such fundamental elements such as the body, frame, chassis interior and engine all recieving due attention. The frame and suspension particularly has been sand-blasted and painted. She sits on new chrome wire wheel
