  • 1965 Bentley S3 Standard Steel Saloon

    POA

    The last Bentley to be built on a separate chassis, in 1962, saw the introduction of the Bentley S3 factory bodied standard steel saloon and, at first glance, it would appear that the all new S3 was merely an S2 with different headlamps. The introduction of the twin headlamps was clearly the most obvious change but the differences did not end there. Further changes included the introduction of smaller bumper overriders and the repositioning of the front indicators and side lamps into one single unit on the front wing resulting in a more attractive appearance. The S3's interior now had individual front seats in place of the split bench seat found in the earlier S-Types and some had air conditioning, electric windows and front seat belts fitted. Mechanically speaking the S3 was the same as the S2 with a 6230cc Rolls-Royce V8 engine and automatic gearbox but this model was fitted with larger carburettors, improved power steering to aid smoother movement at parking speed and a Lucas vacuum-advance distributor to aid fuel consumption making it almost identical in mechanical specification to the S3 Continental that was being produced at the same time.

  • 1961 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster ‘Flat Floor’

    POA

    Introduced in 3.8-litre form in May 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a major sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. While, inevitably, the car's stupendous straight-line performance and gorgeous looks grabbed the headlines, there was a lot more to the E-Type beneath the skin. The design owed much to that of the racing D-Type. Indeed, the E-Type would be one of the last great sports cars developed directly from a successful competition ancestor. Just as in the D-Type, a monocoque tub formed the main body/chassis structure while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. With a claimed 265 horsepower on tap, the E-Type's performance did not disappoint: firstly, because it weighed around 500lb less than the XK150 and secondly because of experience gained with the D-Type they created one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. Developed from that of the original XK120 sports car and refined in the racing D-Type, the double wishbone, independent front suspension was mounted on the forward s

  • 1995 Chrysler Viper Venom Roadster

    POA

    That a major US manufacturer could come up with such an exciting concept car was startling enough but Chrysler's decision to put the Viper into production was nothing short of astonishing. Inspired, as its name suggests, by the legendary Cobra, Tom Gale's design study made its motor show debut in 1989 following discussions between Chrysler boss Bob Lutz and Cobra-creator Carroll Shelby; its appearance triggering an avalanche of deposit cheques. Without doubt, a large part of the Viper's 'back to basics' appeal stems from its unique selling point: a massively powerful eight-litre, V10 engine. The latter had been born out of the requirement for a larger unit to power the Dodge Ram pick-up truck, the prototype being created simply by grafting two extra cylinders on to the Ram's existing 5.9-litre, V8. Despite being relatively 'low-tech', the Lamborghini-developed pushrod V10 churns out 400bhp and a brutal 450lbs/ft of torque at just 3,600rpm, figures which the 3,280lb Viper translates - via a six-speed manual gearbox - into a 0-60mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 165mph. Compared with this paragon of power units, the Viper's running gear makes somewhat less interesting readin

  • 1973 Jaguar E-Type Series III Roadster

    POA

    The Jaguar E-Type was ten years old and needed a new lease of life. History repeated itself and it was a huge success when Jaguar debuted its robust V12 engine in a sports car instead of the saloon for which it was designed. Despite its sports-car heritage, Jaguar depended on saloon vehicles for its survival and had developed the twelve-cylinder engine to power them with sufficient torque and refinement. Larger and softer in nature with weight redistributed 53/47, the Series III had lost the wilds of its youth but gained the long legged touring profile to which it was arguably better suited. Robert Bell in Motor was quoted as saying at the time that "all we expected to try was a new engine, but what in fact we drove was a new car. Not a yowling, aggressive Ferrari-like machine with which, perhaps, most people associate a V12 engine, but a very smooth, quiet and refined grand touring sports car". This manual E-Type Roadster was built on 6th February 1973 and shipped to New York on 2 March 1973. It spent its life on the East Coast where it was partly restored and had a bare metal respray. The car was then shipped to Eire when its then owner relocated with his collection of Jaguars. T

  • 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250 S

    POA

    Premiered at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1965, the initial model line-up of the W108 consisted of the 250 S, 250 SE, and 300 SE, as well as a sole W109, the 300 SEL. Engines for the new car were carried over from the previous generation but enlarged and refined. The 250 S was the entry-level vehicle fitted with a 2496cm³ Straight-six M108 engine with two dual downdraft carburettors, delivering 130bhp at 5400rpm which accelerated the car to 62mph in 13 seconds and gave a top speed of 113mph. Approximately 130,000 of the 250 S/SE models were built during the first two years of the W108/109's existence. This 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250 S saloon is in very good condition given its 50 years and, although largely original, has little signs of its maturity. The tan interior is complete and in good condition as is the black coachwork and chrome. This example has spent the majority of its life in the south of France and dry stored by the owner in a Mercedes-Benz specialist garage until his passing. He had owned the car for some 48 years before leaving this W108 to his son. We are assured it is mechanically good; starts, runs and should be entirely reliable with the vendor having MoT tested the c

    POA

    Renault wowed the crowds and the motoring press with their 2+2 Coupe GT MPV concept when they revealed their Matra inspired styling exercise at the Paris Motor Show in 1998. The concept, by Patrick Le Quement, was boldly taken into production largely unchanged. Featuring design ahead of its time, the Avantime was packed full of luxuries, safety features and advanced engineering. Highlights included unique double-hinged 'kinematic' pillarless doors allowing easy access to the front and rear seats (even when tightly parked), the world's largest opening glass sunroof at the time (a full 1m/sq of opening roof) featuring strengthened heat-reflecting glass, theatre seating (rear positioned higher than the front), galvanised steel chassis with aluminium upper structure, cavernous 530 litre boot, xenon headlights, a 'grand air' button which simultaneously opened all pillarless windows and sunroof, and finally a choice of powerful engines (3.0 V6 or 2.0 turbo) giving a grand tourer driving style and claimed lowest 0-62mph of 8.6 seconds. Just ten months after Avantime production started in 2001, Matra announced that they would cease all vehicle manufacturing, with much of the facilities goi

    POA

    The E-Type was manufactured between 1961 and 1975, with Jaguar creating a legend by combining good looks and high performance all at a competitive price. Established as an icon of 1960's motoring and a great success for Jaguar, more than 70,000 E-Types were sold during its lifespan, around 60,000 of these were left hand drive mainly destined for the USA. The Series One was introduced, initially for export only, in March 1961, with the domestic market launch coming four months later, in July of that year. The cars at this time used the triple SU carburettor, 3.8-litre, six cylinder XK engine and non synchromesh gearbox from the XK150S plus some very pretty but upright and uncompromising seats. The 4.2 litre cars were introduced in October 1964 with the same power and top speed of 150mph, but with more torque from the larger engine, a brand new all synchromesh gearbox, some very comfortable seats and brakes more in keeping with that advertised top speed. The 4.2 litre was a far better product and much easier to live with on a daily basis. This example is the sought after 4.2 litre version with all synchromesh gearbox, manufactured on 12/04/1965 and supplied to Henlys of London. An ea

    POA

    In the early 1970s, Porsche had designs on racing a turbocharged version of the 911, in support of which they planned to create a homologation special along the lines of the Carrera 2.7 litre RS. A change in the rules negated the need to sell a precise number of street legal race vehicles, but the company decided to continue with the project anyway - the Porsche 911 Turbo or 930 was born. The 930 was introduced at the Paris Motor Show of 1974 and produced from 1975 to 1989, during which time it was the fastest production car available on the German market. It was based around the Carrera RS 3.0, the engine from which was modified courtesy of turbo technology originally developed for the 917/30 CAN-AM cars. Initially, power output was 260bhp but from 1978 it was increased to 300bhp by raising the engine capacity to 3.3 litres. To accommodate the extra performance over the RS 3.0, the 930 sported revised suspension, larger brakes and a robust, four-speed gearbox. In order to help deliver the power to the road, a rear spoiler was fitted and a wider rear wheel and tyre package was squeezed under specially flared arches. In skilled hands, a 930 will show a clean pair of heels to most of

    POA

    Introduced in 1962, the Elan featured a simple but effective steel backbone frame and all-independent wishbone suspension which used a modified Chapman Strut, as developed in Lotus Grand Prix cars, at the rear. Rack-and-pinion steering was sourced from the Triumph Vitesse and there were Girling disc brakes all round. The Elan's engine was a highly modified 1498cc (later 1558cc) Ford Cortina unit incorporating Lotus's own twin-camshaft cylinder head and both the gearbox and differential came, likewise, from Ford. Introduced in November 1964, the S2 featured numerous detail styling changes and improved brakes. As one would expect given its background and specification, the Elan proved to be a highly capable circuit racer, and capitalising on the numerous successes achieved by privately entered cars, Lotus introduced their own version, the '26R', in 1964. This fully restored S2 Elan presented in iconic Lotus yellow with black trim is offered with the accompanying hard top and is in fantastic condition throughout.

  • 1954 Triumph TR2 'Long door'

    POA

    The first production road Triumph TR2 left the Triumph works at Canley in August 1953; thereafter production was very slow for several months. Just 250 cars were built prior to 1954 of which only 50 stayed within the UK. At the start of 1954, production increased and TR2s began to dominate the home market. This was due to Triumph's determination that a reasonable proportion would stay in the UK, whereas MG, Morgan and Jaguar were mainly exporting. The early TR2s were sought-after mainly because of their performance, low running costs, availability and low price. Such was the success of the TR2 that in 1954 one entered the famous Mille Miglia event where it came 28th out of 450 starters and in the Le Mans 24 Hours of that year another TR2 came 5th in class. Both results emphasised the strength and performance of the cars. Offered here is an excellent 'long door' example of the marque, well presented with British Racing Green coachwork, complemented by brown leather trim and fawn hood. The car also features a number of optional extras fitted from new, including wire wheels, a heater and an adjustable steering column; details of which can be found on the accompanying heritage certific

  • 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB

    POA

    The 599's engine is derived directly from the Ferrari Enzo, which, just a few years earlier, had been acclaimed as the company's most technologically advanced supercar ever. The GTB can sprint from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds and the six-litre, V12 can produce 620bhp at 7,600rpm bringing the car to a speed of 205mph. Its acceleration was faster than the Enzo and even faster than the McLaren F1, partly in thanks to its superb traction control which was initially developed for the Scuderia's Formula One cars. Like its cousin, the F430, the 599 was the second Ferrari to wear the now trademark 'il manettino' dial on the steering wheel. This dial, with its name translating to 'little lever', features five settings to adjust the traction damper settings and to monitor the throttle mapping. This gives the driver the option of having both a docile driver-friendly car or a race set-up with breathtaking performance. Like all modern Ferraris, the 599 is just as luxurious as it is fast. The interior is spacious and comfortable with incredible attention to detail being paid throughout. Carbon fibre and aluminium are utilised on the dash, which features Enzo-styled instruments and a complex LCD displ

    The Alfa Romeo 105 series coupé, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Bertone, was considered to be one of his greatest designs. Not only as one of the best looking and handling classic saloon cars of the period, but the advanced specification with its five-speed gearbox, all round disc brakes, independent suspension and powerful twin-cam engine still has the capability to embarrass many of its modern counterparts. This GT 1300, offered in black with matching trim, is in fabulous condition throughout due to an extensive restoration and upgrade by the previous owner. The bespoke restoration took place in 2010 and was described as a 'full body project', the engine of this 1.3 litre Junior was fast-road tuned and the head ported which makes this potentially ideal for classic rallies where it would, undoubtedly, be very competitive. This was then complemented by a full bare-metal respray and comprehensive works to the body and chassis of the vehicle. The interior offers quilted leather door-cards, seats and trim all new at the time of restoration which was fewer than 10,000km ago.

    At the Paris Salon of 1984, Ferrari presented the successor to the legendary BB512 after nearly ten years of production. Called Testarossa, referring to the legendary Le Mans winning car, it is again the work of Pininfarina. The Testarossa is equipped with a 12-cylinder boxer engine inaugurated in 1972 on the 365 GT4BB. The capacity is increased to 4942cc and power increased to 390hp at 6300rpm, at the time of its release, Autocar magazine found the Testarossa capable of 181mph and 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds. The functionality of its Pininfarina styled bodywork was disguised by a wealth of flamboyant and futuristic detailing. Developed with the aid of a wind tunnel, it combined a low drag coefficient with impressive negative lift characteristics. The first twelve-cylinder Ferrari to be marketed in America for a decade, the new flagship was of vital importance to Maranello. Although it was built around a similar tubular steel matrix, it retained the same mid-engined layout as its Berlinetta Boxer forebears. The Testarossa was more than just a simple evolution, its use of galvanised steel for the doors, roof and bulkheads promised greater longevity while a longer wheelbase, wider track a

As time went by, the Jaguar was treated to a three year restoration, covered each month in the Practical Classics Magazine. It is worth mentioning that SPL undertook chemical cleaning and corrosion protection followed by paintwork (Jaguar Steel Grey) and additional Schutz underbody protection by Mike Harris at Kolorshack.

    The Volkswagen Type 2 was the third generation of the Volkswagen Transporter and was marketed under various nameplates worldwide. Larger and heavier than its predecessor, the T2, with a more squared and less rounded styling, was manufactured in Germany from 1979 until 1990. Examples built between 1979 and 1985 featured round headlights and chrome-plated steel bumpers with plastic end-caps. Air-cooled models (1979 to mid-1983) lack the lower grill above the radiator of the water-cooled models, except on models with factory air conditioning. 1986 model year vehicles received revisions including a tachometer, more fabric choices, redesigned air conditioner, larger water-cooled engine with a more advanced engine management system and redesigned transmissions including an optional Syncro four-wheel drive. Exterior changes include rectangular headlights (on selected models) and a variety of paint options.

    POA

    Designed by Alex Issigonis in 1959, a new concept in car design was born. With a monocoque shell, transversely mounted engine and front wheel drive, the new 'Mini', soon became popular across a broad spectrum of the population. The potential for competition use was soon seen by John Cooper; BMC were finally persuaded by John Cooper and the two worked together in culminating the birth of the Austin Mini Cooper and the Morris Mini Cooper in 1961. Victories in the 1964, 1965 and 1967 Monte-Carlo Rallies set the Mini on the road to fame but probably the greatest publicity was gained from their, somewhat unfair, disqualification for lighting irregularities in the 1966 event after coming in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the 'S', was developed in tandem and released in 1963. Approximately 2,500 Mk.II Cooper S were built making it one of the rarest versions of this very collectible motor car.

    The Jaguar E-Type was initially designed and shown to the public as a grand tourer in two-seater coupé form and as a convertible roadster. The 2+2 version, with a lengthened wheelbase, was released several years later. On its release, Enzo Ferrari called the Jaguar E-Type "The most beautiful car ever made". Open headlights without glass covers, a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and tail lights below the bumpers, better cooling aided by an enlarged 'mouth' and twin electric fans, together with uprated brakes are all hallmarks of Series II cars. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a 'ribbed' appearance. The interior and dashboard were also re-designed with rocker switches being substituted for toggle switches. The dashboard switches also lost their symmetrical layout. New seats were fitted which purists claim lacked the style of the originals but were certainly more comfortable and air conditioning and power steering were available as factory options.

The car's bodywork was made by Jensen Motors and the vehicles were assembled at the BMC Abingdon works. The 3000 was a successful car which won its class in many European rallies during its heyday and also ran at Le Mans during that period; as such, it is still used in competition by enthusiasts today. Introduced in March 1961, the 3000 Mk. II came with three SU carburettors and an uprated camshaft, designated the BT7 Mk. II (four-seat version) and BN7 Mk. II (two-seat version); however, upon the introduction of the BJ7 (2+2 seats) model in January 1962, the number of carburettors was reduced to two. As a result of the introduction of the BJ7, the BN7 ceased production in March 1962, with the BT7 coming to an end in June of the same year.

    Porsche's 356 became a classic the day the first car left the production line and the ensuing years have only enhanced the legend. Continuous updates from the very earliest days of the model and gradual replacement of its early Volkswagen-based components with parts from Porsche manufacture saw to this. These detail changes came frequently but major change was only made when necessary and after due consideration of their effect to improve performance, ride, handling and the marque's enviable reputation of being able to produce sporting motorcars with competition-beating reliability. After a significant updating in 1955 with the 356A, the 356B was introduced in 1960, the firm's most significant evolution yet. Motivated in part by increasingly demanding safety regulations, the 356B had raised stronger bumpers and lifted headlights that noticeably altered the car's frontal appearance. Vent windows in the doors and hinged rear windows enhanced interior ventilation. Up-rated Elfin brakes with cooling fins also benefited from air intakes below the headlights which channels cooling air to the front drums.

Jaguar Cars took over The Daimler Company in 1960 and the 1966 Sovereign was the second Daimler to be based on a Jaguar model. Subsequent Sovereigns arose with the series I, II and III Jaguar XJ6. The V12 versions of the Daimler, available from 1972 to 1997, were named Daimler Double-Six after the original Daimler V12s. An extended wheelbase version was introduced which eventually became the standard model. From 1975, the 2.8 litre was replaced by a 3.4 litre version of the XK engine. Finally, Jaguar introduced a short-lived two-door pillarless coupé version of the Series II using the short wheelbase floorplan with Daimler versions using both six and twelve cylinder engines; the coupé has proved the most enduring.

    Originally intended to replace the company's iconic 911, the 928 attempted to combine the power, poise and handling of a sports car with the refinement, comfort and equipment of a luxury saloon. The body, styled by Wolfgang Möbius under guidance of Anatole Lapine, was mainly of galvanized steel but the doors, bonnet and boot were made of aluminium to save weight. Polyurethane elastic bumpers were integrated into the nose and tail and covered in body-coloured plastic; an unusual feature for the time that was intended as both a styling feature and to reduce drag. In 1980, the 928S was introduced with a larger 4.7 litre engine and wider wheels and tyres, whilst in 1987, the engine displacement was further increased to 4957cc with the introduction of the, now highly desirable 928 S4.

    The DB6 was launched at the London Motor Show in 1965 following on from the highly successful DB5 immortalised by the 1964 James Bond film 'Goldfinger'. The front end of the DB6 was visually similar to the DB5 but closer inspection revealed quite a different car. The wheelbase was lengthened allowing additional passenger space in the rear along with a raised roof line. The profile of the rear quarter lights echoed those of the DB4GT Zagato, a styling theme that continued through to the DBS and V8 models until production finished in 1990. Both front and rear bumpers were split into two pieces and the rear of the car was re-styled with a Kamm tail which helped reduce aerodynamic drag and gave the car more stability at speed. The engine remained the same as the Tadek Marek-designed DB5 unit, a 3,995cc twin overhead cam, straight six with triple SU carburettors producing a claimed 282bhp.

A removable hardtop was a popular factory option for the early Triumph Stags and was later supplied as standard equipment. A new 2.5 litre, V8 engine, designed and developed by Triumph's Harry Webster, was later enlarged to 2997cc. Most Stags were fitted with a Borg Warner automatic gearbox although manual gearboxes with overdrive are available. Electric windows, power steering and power-assisted brakes were fitted as standard. Presented in unmarked green paintwork with similarly presented black trim, this automatic 1973 Stag is in fantastic order throughout. In the past 32 years, this car had covered a staggering 710 miles. Having had a comprehensive restoration completed in 1985, the then owner tragically passed away and his widow couldn't bear the thought of parting with what had been a lab

  • 1983 Bentley Mulsanne Turbo

    POA

    The Bentley Mulsanne is a performance luxury car produced from 1980 until 1992 although derivative models like the Continental T and Azure continued in production into the 2000s. The name 'Mulsanne' is derived from Bentley's famous racing history which included five victories at the 24 Hours du Mans between 1924 and 1930 - the 'Mulsanne Straight' being the stretch of the Le Mans racecourse where cars reach their highest speeds. The new Bentley promised to epitomise the very spirit of Bentley motoring by offering ample performance combined with complete comfort; the Mulsanne Turbo was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1982 and produced until 1985. There was a 50% increase in power thanks to the Garrett Airesearch turbocharger while the interior featured the usual highly polished walnut veneered fascia, blemish-free leather and carpets and headlining of pure wool. This Bentley Mulsanne Turbo has only covered an incredible 3,190 miles from new. It was purchased from Jack Barclay Limited in Berkley Square on 25th May, 1983 by Mr. Archibald D. Kelly, of Kilmacolm, who worked in shipbuilding; indeed, he owned shipyards in both Glasgow and Belfast. He purchased two Rolls-Royce cars and

  • 1976 MG Midget

    POA

    First introduced in Monte-Carlo by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) on 20th May 1958 and intended as a low-cost model, the Sprite was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, which received a royalty payment from the manufacturers BMC. The low cost of £669 was achieved by using a mildly tuned version of the A-Series engine and as many other components from existing cars as possible. Manufactured at the MG sports car factory at Abingdon, it was not surprising that the success of the design would lead to an MG version, which was known as the Midget. The final version of the Austin Healey Sprite arrived in 1966, as the Mk IV. The new model now used a twin carburettor 1275cc version of the proven A-Series engine which it shared with other BMC models such as the Mini Cooper S. Another major improvement was the addition of a folding hood; previous models consisted of a separate hood cover and frame. In 1969, a 'British Leyland' makeover was applied to the Sprite, consisting of matt black paint on the sills, Rostyle wheels and a plastic front grill. In 1974, to meet US federal regulations, large black plastic bumpers were added to the front and rear and the ride height was increase

  • 1955 Ford Zephyr 6 Mk.I

    POA

    The Ford Zephyr was manufactured by Ford of Britain from 1952 to 1972. Initially it was sold as a more powerful six-cylinder model to complement the four-cylinder Ford Consul and, from 1962, the Zephyr itself was offered in both four and six-cylinder versions, the Consul having been discontinued. The first of the Zephyr range was a lengthened version of the four-cylinder 1508cc Consul engine with a 2262cc six-cylinder engine producing 68bhp. The Zephyr came with a three-speed gearbox, controlled by a column-mounted gear lever. The front suspension design employed what would later come to be known as Macpherson struts while a more conventional configuration for the rear suspension used a live axle with half-elliptic springs. The car could reach just over 80mph and returned 23mpg. The Ford Zephyr Six was available with four-door saloon, estate and two-door convertible bodies. The convertible version was made by Carbodies and had a power-operated hood; the estate car was by Abbotts of Farnham and was sold as the Farnham. This charming Mk. I Zephyr is presented in two-tone green with contrasting blood red trim; the art deco styling throughout is in lovely condition and driving invokes

  • 1965 Volkswagen Split-Screen Camper Type 2

    POA

    The Volkswagen Type 2 was to make its debut in 1950 being initially based on the early Beetle model. Simple and rugged, the vehicle was to prove its worth in terms of reliability and longevity and, before long, numerous permutations were available. During the 1960s, the Type 2 Combi was to become synonymous with the hippy movement, particularly in the U.S. where examples were frequently painted in psychedelic colour schemes and kitted out to provide living accommodation. They were a frequent sight at rock festivals and concerts throughout, in recent times, celebrity ownership has raised the profile of these characterful vehicles and the split-screen models in all their different guises are especially loved, good examples being keenly sought. Imported into the UK in 2009, this much loved Volkswagen has been enjoyed and used regularly by the vendor. Mechanically, this is a very well sorted example and cosmetically she has been continually worked on and as such presents in good order. The red and white interior is both striking and practical for those long days at the beach. This lefthand drive 'tin-top splittie' sits proudly on Porsche Fuchs alloy wheels offering a comfortable and sm

  • 1961 BMW Isetta

    POA

    The Isetta is an Italian-designed microcar built under licence in a number of different countries including Germany and the United Kingdom. Produced in the post-war years at a time when cheap, short distance transportation was most needed, it became one of the most successful and influential city cars ever created. Because of its egg-shape and bubble-like windows, it became known as a 'bubble car'; a name then later given to other similar vehicles. In 1955, it was the world's first mass-production car and was the top-selling, single-cylinder car in the world with a total of 161,728 sold. BMW made the Isetta its own, redesigning most of the car so much so that none of the parts between a BMW Isetta Moto Coupé and an Iso Isetta could be interchangeable. While it retained the 'Bubble Window' styling, the BMW version differed from the Italian model in that the headlamps were fixed separately to the sides of the bodywork and it carried the BMW badge below the windscreen. This righthand drive BMW Isetta has been owned by the vendor since 1963 and was used as his daily run around for many years. When he stopped using the car, he decided to put it into storage with a plan to fully restorin

  • 1969 Morris Minor 1000

    POA

    The Morris Minor debuted at the Earls Court Motor Show on 20th September 1948. Designed under the leadership of Alec Issigonis, over 1.3 million examples were manufactured from 1948-1971 and, indeed the 1,000,000 example was sold by Historics in 2015. Initially available as a two-door saloon and convertible, the range was subsequently expanded to include a four-door saloon in 1950 and wood-framed estate. Other changes included a modified dashboard layout with toggle switches, textured steel instrument binnacle and larger convex glove box covers. A different heater completed the interior upgrade whilst the larger, more modern combined front side/indicator light units, common to many BMC vehicles of the time, were fitted to the front wings. This charming example benefits from a full body restoration over the last eight months with the underside under-sealed and Waxoyled. All new rubber seals were used and the rear brakes and cables have been replaced. Alongside new tyres in each corner, it has been fully serviced and runs well.
