At the equivalent of £1800 when new in 1967, the 1600 series was extremely economical with up to 30 mpg highway. Beginning with the 1600-2, the two-door model
£39950 Originally registered as OGK 5, our early Alpine 1 was exported in July 1953, and returned to the UK in August of the same year. Little is known of the car’s earlier history, aside from it was barn stored in the mid 1960’s and did not re-emerge until 2001. It was pictured in Classic & Car Mart Finds and Discoveries in June 2002. On sale the number was retained by the previous owner, and the Alpine was allocated AAS 378, which it carries today. Following the sale the car was subject to both a mechanical and bodywork restoration with a new interior being fitted at the same time. The works carried out at the time are detailed within the history file together with invoices and bills from 2001 onwards. Very recently the car has been through our workshops were work to the suspension and steering has been carried out. On checking the MOT records, the Alpine has only covered just under 3500 miles since recovered in 2001. An older restoration, providing a very usable car, in very good condition. Mechanically the car has been well looked after, cosmetically the interior was replaced when the car was last restored. History file containing as found pictures, together with bills and invo
£34950 First registered by Lanarkshire County Council on 10th November 1966 Purchased by the rom marque specialist Labinjoh Ltd of Edinburgh some five years ago, `JVA 629D' was advertised as having covered just 64,000 miles in the hands of three careful owners. The Scottish firm had known of the Alfa Romeo since 2000 when it was a stalled restoration project belonging to Dr Mary Robinson of Gourock and undertook a front suspension overhaul, engine reassembly, electric window motor refurbishment, dashboard illumination fix and sundry bodywork repairs before selling the four-seater to Edinburgh resident Martin Proudler during autumn 2002. Treated to sundry gearbox and brake fettling shortly thereafter, the 2600 Sprint further benefited the following work carried out by the last owner, a retired engineer, who estimated that he spent some £3,250 on parts and put circa 200 hours worth of labour into `JVA 629D' during his ownership. His recollection of the work which has gone into the car is as follows: Complete re-trim of the boot Rear lights repaired and rewired New parcel shelf with integral speaker Glovebox lock fixed All rubber door and quarter light seals renewed Battery wiring red

£34500 The BMW 700 is a small rear-engined car which was produced by BMW in various models from August 1959 to November 1965. The coupe and saloon versions of the 700 were shown at the 1959 Frankfurt Motor Show. After the show, BMW received 25,000 orders for 700s. Production of the BMW 700 Coupe began in August 1959, with the saloon version following in December. The first variant of the 700 to appear after the original coupe and saloon was the 700 Sport in August 1960. Available only as a coupe, the Sport used an uprated engine with a pair of Solex carburetors and a 9.0:1 compression ratio. This brought the power output to 40 horsepower (30 kW). The Sport also had a rear anti-roll bar. A ribbed oil pan was used to reduce the oil temperature of the more powerful engine. The 700 Sport was renamed the 700 CS in 1963. The 700S Cabriolet was introduced shortly after the 700 Sport, and was available only with the Sport's 40 horsepower engine. The convertible body was made by Karosserie Baur of Stuttgart, 2,592 convertibles were built. It was the first BMW automobile with a monocoque structure. The 700 was a sales success at a time when BMW was close to financial ruin. The 700 was also s
£79950 A one owner car until 2014, originally purchased by Ernie Whittaker, on behalf of his 21 year old nephew Bob Evans in February 1975 under a monthly finance agreement, which on settlement in 1978 the title was passed to Bob. In the history file are the sale agreement, loan agreement, paying in book , and pictures of Bob with the car in 1975 when he was 21. Due to his age, his uncle had put the finance in his name until paid off by Bob. A very low mileage Pantera, in the same ownership from original registration in February 1975 until September 2014. A very original fully documented car with a warranted mileage of under 24000 miles. Designed by Tom Tjaarda, and built by Ghia, the Pantera was launched in 1970, and subsequently up rated in 1973 to the Pantera L (Luxury).The Pantera, was powered by the Ford 351 – 4V Ford V-8, driven through a five speed ZF gearbox. With power assisted disc brakes on all four wheels, together with rack and pinion steering all of which created a 1970’s super car capable of a top speed of just under 160 MPH, and on launch a 0-60 mph time of 5.5 seconds Air conditioning, Magnesium Sports Wheels, 351-4V engine, 5 speed transmission, Power disc brakes,
£39950 First registered on the 29th September 1984, this 911 has an extremely comprehensive history file with service invoices dating back to 1986, together with copious notes and invoices relating to upgrades, maintenance and renovation to date.

POA To quote Autocar ‘As the proof of everything a Cayman could be when given enough firepower the GT4 is a definitive, resounding success. Dynamically peerless at its price range, this is a car that demands and rewards its driver in equal measure. Is it really worth 911 GT3 money? To us, the fact you can even start to compare them only adds to its allure. A true Porsche GT. •Motorsport-inspired Cayman packs the 3.8-litre engine from a 911 •Most powerful Cayman produces 380bhp, six-speed manual only •All models sold out – currently available from £90,000 - £110,000 What is it? The Cayman GT4 is the rarest of things: Porsche’s GT department giving its loyal customers exactly what they want; no compromises. For several years the brand has upset its enthusiasts, with electric power steering in the 991, then no manual gearbox in the GT3 and GT3 RS, and then moving to turbocharging for the mid-life refresh. Those cars were still unquestionably brilliant, but a trend seemed to be emerging, moving away from offering driver engagement, and instead making cars that were quicker than ever, but a lot easier to drive too. Well, the Cayman GT4 is the near-perfect way of silencing the doubters,
£34950 Originally supplied by St Helier Garages Jersey in 1965 to the then Chairman of the Jersey Electricity Company, this 3.4S has been subject to a total chassis up restoration, with the engine, gearbox and axle being rebuilt by Rob Beere Racing and assembly works undertaken by a specialist Jaguar restorer. A substantial amount of money has been invested into the rebuild which is understood to be well over £60000 as the owner stopped adding up the invoices then. A very fine example of a fully restored Jaguar S Type, with history from new. A full photographic restoration took place with a bare metal full restored body shell. Fully restored with a Suffolk and Turley interior, stunning woodwork and trim. In excellent condition, following preparation and unit rebuilds by Bob Beere racing (Jaguar specialist). The rebuild includes a new old stock cylinder head , electronic ignition
£59950 Originally registered 307 HTB in October 1957, according to the green UK log book the car was purchased second hand by Richard Camm-Fitz in 1967, Dick Fitz later wrote to confirm that he bought the car fitted with racing tyres as the previous owner had raced the car at Brands Hatch. Mr Fitz moved to work in the Jersey in the early 1970’s, and subsequently sold the car on his retirement in 1985. There is a letter in the history file confirming the early history, and Mr Fitz had the colour changed to blue from the original Imperial Maroon, after a period of years the Jensen was given to Le Riche to restore in the late 1990’s at a cost exceeding £40,000, in 2008 the mileage was 95000 miles, as a consequence the mileage today of 97227 indicates minimal use over the last nine years. In excellent restored condition, as present being checked through our workshops, a fully restored with perhaps some early racing history to be researched. In excellent restored condition, the whole car having undergone a £40,000 restoration in the late 1990's Excellent finished in black leather with grey carpets In excellent restored condition, as present being checked through our workshops
£34950 WEY 125M was first registered in October 1973, and only in very recent years has it been registered in Guernsey. This Rolls-Royce Corniche is now finished in light gold with the paintwork being in excellent condition. The interior is Magnolia leather with matching door cards, complemented by Deep Fawn Over Rugs. Woodwork is traditional highly figured Burr Walnut and like the bright work is in excellent condition. This Rolls-Royce Corniche drives beautifully and is in fine order throughout Rolls-Royce's adoption of unitary construction for its new Silver Shadow and T-Series Bentley necessitated the reorganisation of in-house coachbuilder H J Mulliner, Park Ward to enable it to produce new designs on the Shadow floor pan. Recalling the firm's glamorous Grandes Routières of pre-war days such as the Phantom II Continental, these final coachbuilt models were limited to just two, a two-door coupé or similar convertible, the former arriving in March 1966 and the latter in September the following year. Some of the frontal panels were shared with the standard four-door saloon but otherwise the new bodyshells were unique, featuring a distinctive dipping upper wing line with parallel c
£6950 A restored 1980 MGB Roadster that had considerable expenditure spent on it during an extensive restoration by Abingdon Services in 1996, prior to this a Gold Seal replacement engine had been fitted in 1993 at 75029 miles. Originally UK registered as NJU986W, the mileage today stands at 91165 miles, supported by an extensive invoice file together with a photographic record of the body restoration work carried out in 1995/6. In very good overall condition, one or two minor rust spots that can be easily rectified, the engine bay needs some minor cosmetic attention, but overall a very usable MGB Roadster with good mechanicals, and a strong engine, the exhaust needs some attention,it drives very well and everything works as it should. The body was subject to considerable work in the 1990’s for which there is a photographic record, and included new inner and outer sills, wing sections and doors. Today the body work is in very good condition with only a minor area of rust which could be rectified on behalf of a new owner. The interior is in very good condition, have been re-upholstered in black leather seats, black carpets and replaced door cards. The duck hood is in very good condi
£24950 A very solid low mileage two owner, incredibly well documented Volvo P1800S that is in very good and original unrestored condition, being in the second owner’s hands since 1983. This 1964 Swedish built RHD P1800S, is an interim model between the British and later Swedish production, sporting cow horn bumpers and hockey stick side trim shared with the first series British made cars. The Volvo has only covered 2316 miles over the last 34 years, recording a total mileage of 77540 miles from new, supported by the original Volvo service book showing regular service and maintenance from 1964 to date, this compliments a history file containing a complete service history of invoices from 1964. It is probably one of the most well documented and original cars for sale today Just re-commissioned after period of some twenty years in very dry storage as part of collection. After considerable expenditure and over two hundred hours work, a well documented car, with low ownership, and an excellent history. The normal areas of weakness caused by rust have been attended to, with attention being paid to the underbody, the car mechanically has been subject to a thorough mechanical overhaul as d
£29950 In 1989 Volkswagen UK decided to be involved in British Rally Sport, and certainly two cars are known to have been imported based on the already homologated Golf Rallye built at the VW plant in Belgium. One car, supported by VW UK was supplied to Gilders of Sheffield and prepared by Power Engineering of Uxbridge, registered G888 NWB, Vin WVWZZZ1GZLB010567, which was to be driven by the late Mark Lovell in the 1990 season. The second car registered G829 KVV, Vin WVWZZZ1GZLB010565, only two numbers apart, was run by the Shell Gemini team, in whose colours it appeared in the first Rally of the series being the Vauxhall Sport Rally in North Wales. Prepared for Shell by SBG, the Golf Rallye, was to be driven by former-Volkswagen Junior Team Golf GTI driver Steve Davies who confirmed ‘It was supplied by Shell Oils in Gemini livery and I was the driver for the 1990 National Championship. SBG built the car brand-new, specifically for me, for that year, and we did one rally in it, the 1990 Vauxhall Sport Rally in North Wales. The first round of the MSA National Championship at the time, it was a one-day event, starting from Llandudno.’ The car entry number 11 is shown on a YouTube vi
POA The 1948 Porsche 356 employed a platform chassis with rear-mounted air-cooled engine and torsion bar all-independent suspension. 1955 marked the arrival of the 356A, readily distinguishable by its now curved one-piece screen, a wider range of engines and 15'' instead of 16'' wheels. Announced at the 1959 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Porsche 356B T5 enhanced Porsche's reputation as builders of the finest small capacity sports cars, continuing the huge commercial success of its predecessors. Handling, ride and refinement were improved, as well as the addition of a more powerful 90bhp 1600cc engine to the range, a higher nose, more vertical headlamp lenses and raised front winglets - all of which upped the original cars' appeal and firmly established it as by far the best car in its class. Prior to the launch of the 356C in 1963, the 356B with the T6 body was announced in 1962, with the twin air vents, larger rear window, and the facelift to the front of the car with the wider lower edge to the bonnet. A Black plate California car that has been well kept over the years, original interior with the front seats recovered in black hide, original door cards, headlining and electric sunroo
POA Call for more details. 1965 Ford Mustang 2+2 Fastback in Inferno Maroon (burgundy) (metallic with clear coat), with a black Pony interior. The cutouts are easy to reach, no climbing under the car. It has a functioning hood scoop. The car is fast and very attractive in Inferno Red metallic. Call for more details. It has a rare fold down rear seat which is easy to operate, a GT dash, with all gauges, and a rally pac mounted on the steering column. It is a C-Code Mustang engine(was a 289 V-8 with a 2-barrel carburettor) with a 351 V-8, 4 barrel Holley 600 CFM carburettor, and Hedman headers. Attached to the engine is a 4 speed (top loader) manual transmission. The front brakes are disc and the rear drum. The wheels are 15" American Racing 200S.
£6950 The 300 CE coupe was based on the new W124 E-Class released here in 1986, albeit on an 85 mm shorter wheelbase than its saloon sibling. The coupe’s styling was elegant and remains so today when other cars of the era have dated quickly. Almost 30 years after it was first launched the 300 CE is a good looking car oozing the solid prestige that came with the Mercedes-Benz badge in those days. Underneath it rode on the same competent W124 platform. A combination of coil springs and telescopic shocks at the front worked in tandem with a five-link independent rear suspension to give the 300 CE a solid foundation for responsive handling. The handling was typical of ’Benz, starting out with under steer at low speeds before becoming more balanced as the speed climbs. The result was a supreme feeling of confidence in the road holding. Powerful disc brakes slowed the heavy coupe with ease, and standard ABS added to the coupe’s braking prowess. Under the imposing bonnet lay a silky smooth straight six-cylinder engine. With fuel-injection delivering the fuel, the 3.0-litre six had a single overhead camshaft with two valves per cylinder and put out 135 kW at 5700 revs with peak torque of 2
£32500 William Lyons, founder of Swallow was not content to merely build bodies on other people's chassis. This constrained his creative desires and equally restricted him to products which were stolid rather than sporting. If Lyons and Walmsley were to throw off these shackles, they needed to create their own chassis to suit their ends. However, the industry was littered with failures and Lyons determined that a cautious approach was necessary. Consequently, he arranged for the Standard Motor Company to build a chassis to Swallow's design but fitted with Standard engines. Meanwhile Lyons, the shrewd publicist, had set the scene. 'WAIT! THE 'SS' IS COMING,' stated an advertisement in July 1931. '2 New Coupes of Surpassing Beauty. SS is the new name of a new car that's going to thrill the hearts of the motoring public and the trade alike. It's something utterly new … different … better!' Thus announced, the SS I and SS II Coupes were duly presented at the 1931 London Motor Show, and sensation they certainly caused. The body was ultra low and the bonnet outrageously long. It had, stated the press, the £1,000 look, yet was priced at a very modest £310, highlighting Lyons' unique abili

Its early history is being researched, however by 1962 the second owner was Mr Sidney Richard Cain of Henley on Thames, who owned the car until 1982 when it purchased by Raymond R Sargeant also Henley on Thames. Around this time the registration was changed to FAS 40 During Ray Sargeant’s ownership the car underwent a complete chassis up restoration with new framework and panelling where appropriate. The worked was completed by Rob Green of Gloria Coachworks. Sold via Sotheby’s in 1984 to Mr Daouk of Richmond Surrey, following whom the Alvis was owned by Mr John Harris of Okehampton. During Mr Harris’s ownership the Speed Twenty underwent a cosmetic refresh which included a bare metal respray, and in
£37950 The car for sale today was supplied new by Fiat-France in April 1965, in 1988 it was purchased by Patrick Mersch who was looking for a car to compete with in European endurance and FIA historic series. Prepared originally by Kerry McSwann who specialised in Ferrari’s and looked after Tom Walduck’s Ferrari collection, many original and scarce original Abarth competition parts where sourced which included the aluminium bonnet and Abarth competition sump. From the late 1980’s through to the early 1990’s the coupe competed in the 1992 Historic Grand Prix de Provence, the Nürburgring Old Timer Grand Prix 1990 / 1991, and in 1991 was placed 3rd overall in the FIA European Historic Touring car championship, during this period the car successfully competed at Paul Ricard France, Zandvoort, Silverstone, Nürburgring, Österreichring, Vallelunga and in 1992 Nürburgring, Paul Ricard, Monza amongst others.

POA The 107 series were the last of the hand built Mercedes from Stuttgart, renowned for their durability and strength, they have become increasingly sought after in recent years, with low mileage examples well cared for examples fetching in excess of £40K. Launched in 1971, the Mercedes 107 series immediately became a best seller in European and US markets, with a design reminiscent in some respects of the earlier Pagoda SL. A range of models was offered during the 18 year life of the 107, with the new 5 litre being launched in 1980, which was enhanced over the next 5 years culminating in the last year of manufacture of 1989, being the 5.6 litre 560 SL for sale here. The 560 SL carried a big, 5.6-liter V-8 under its long bonnet. The single-overhead-cam, fuel-injected engine produced 227 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 287 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 rpm. Power was directed to the rear wheels by a four-speed automatic transmission. The 560 SL could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in approximately 8 seconds, which was reasonably quick in its day. It had a top speed of about 140 mph. The SL employed disc brakes with ABS at all four corners, which was not yet common in the late 1980s. The
POA The 308 replaced the 246 Dino in 1975 as Ferrari’s mid engine sports car. It was in production until 1985 when superseded by the 328 which was the last car of this iconic shape. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina (who was also responsible for the Ferrari Daytona) it was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1975 and still today it is recognised as one of Ferrari’s most celebrated shapes. Fitted with Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection the 308 GTSi, produced 235 hp slightly less than the earlier carburettor cars. Decreasing emissions was a necessary requirement as regulations changed worldwide, especially the larges market in the USA. The 2.9Ltr V8 engine was coupled with a 5 speed all synchromesh gearbox propelling the car to in excess of 155 MPH with 0-60 times of 7.8 seconds. Greater performance is possible by removing the energy sapping catalytic converters and returning the car to European specification, which we are doing. This car, notable with its removable hard top, was made famous, not just by its track prowess but by the US TV detective series Magnum P.I. as driven by Tom Selleck, who had a number of the evolving models including the GTSi in the TV
£84950 Delivered to the US in 1972,the mileage reading of 33409 is believed to be correct and is verified by the dated service stickers found on the vehicle.

£37950 Introduced in 1930, the Hornet deployed Wolseley's bevel-driven, overhead-camshaft, six-cylinder engine in a lengthened Morris Minor chassis equipped with hydraulic brakes. Its power-to-weight ratio was exemplary among contemporary 1.3-litre cars, the smooth and flexible six pulling from walking pace to more than 60mph. The model was revised for 1932 with a shortened, chain-driven overhead-cam engine (repositioned to improve cabin space) and four-speed 'silent third' gearbox. Increased performance was offered by the twin-carburettor Hornet Special and the latter chassis rapidly became that of choice for the multitude of independent coachbuilders already using the Hornet as the basis for a sporting two-seater. The Hornet Special was soon making its mark in competitions, one noteworthy achievement being the victory achieved by a team of three Eustace Watkins-bodied Hornets (two Daytonas on the Special chassis, one International on the standard chassis) in the 1932 Light Car Club International Relay Race at Brooklands at an average speed of 77.57mph. Originally supplied by Eustace Watkins , registered as JJ 131 on the 3rd January 1933, the 2/4 seater coachwork was built by Abbe
