Supplied new in Dec 79 at Polar Ford Barnsley,(bill of sale present) the first owner a Mr Richmond kept her for 12 years covering approx 19,000 miles. Then Mr Grant took ownership for the next 25 years where he used the Capri occasionally for weekends and classic car shows.However, the speedo head failed and was changed for a brand new one on the 1st April 1992, (the invoice and old speedo head is still boxed and with the car). This brings the mileage up to date at 6650. The car appears to have been declared sorn and unused for a few years, again in the second keepers ownership.

Two sets of keys are present again, complete with Polar Ford key fob. Under bonnet/boot is original and in show condition, and smells distinctly of a 1970s Ford. Starts and drives superb, wheels are original and they look to have been refurbished at some point. Tyres are original. The sunroof tilts and slides like the very first time is was first opened just perfect. Passed MOT without anything advised in March. Also, at the same time it has had a new cam-belt and service.

1968 Morris Mini Cooper MK II 998cc. Tartan red with a Snowberry white roof. This stunning Mini Cooper has been with its last owner for 14 years and during this time was subject to a complete nut and bolt restoration that was completed in 2012 and covered less than 500 miles since. The restoration was carried out by Sprockets and Spanners of Bradford with all of the invoices in the history file. No expense has been spared and every component either refurbished or replaced, the engine and gearbox were rebuilt with the car now able to run on unleaded fuel. The upholstery is brand new as are the carpets, roof lining and door cards. This car really needs to be seen to be appreciated, the engine bay is fully detailed and the underside as good as the rest of the paintwork. This Mini drives just as good as it looks with a fantastic exhaust note and a great driving experience with the straight cut gearbox. The car displays 61,000 miles which could well be correct, and we have lots of old MoT certificates. There is a large history file with the car showing all the thousands spent during the rebuild. This Cooper is ready to show and would be a welcome addition to any collection and would not look out of place in any parade. From our past experience restored Mini Coopers do not remain unsold for very long, so if you are looking for a stunning example with great investment prospects - then this is the one for you. She really is a turn-key completed project. So there is nothing to do other than enjoy this 'Mini Adventure' and admire the attention to detail that has been put into this beautiful restoration.
1963 Ford Zephyr Six MK III Police Car. Ermine White with red upholstery. Dating from 1963, this particular MkIII looks every inch the period police car.It has only had three owners since 1978, the second of whom fully restored the car in the late-1990s, including an engine rebuild, before the last keeper acquired it in 2011. He has enjoyed the car greatly over the last six years, being invited to every Goodwood Revival where the car has been enjoyed by many thousands of visitors at this superb event, both on and off the track. It has also earned a good living in the film and TV world, including appearances in ‘Endeavour’ and ‘The Quiet Ones’, and has also been featured in the Daily Telegraph. Still in good order throughout and packed with police features such as ‘blues and twos’, PA system and a radio, it also has a rare twin exhaust system in heavy gauge stainless steel and an electric fan to keep it cool on the track. There is a Police sign for the front grille which is easily removed for use on the public highway (as the law requires). Supplied with a very large file of invoices and photos documenting the restoration and regular upkeep since, it has an MOT with no advisories recorded but we will apply a fresh MOT upon sale. Although all the police equipment is easily removable if desired, why would you do that when you can have so much fun at Goodwood? Viewing is highly recommended. Absolutely any inspection is welcome.

1965 Austin Gipsy G4 M15 Pick-Up. Just releasede from a private collection. This Austin has a BMIHT certificate showing build date of 13th April 1965. Bought new by Richard Renfrew of New Farm, Knightcote, Leamington Spa. In service until about 1985 when it was barn stored. Recorded mileage is 30,000. Acquired by the present owner on 13.02.02. The 2199cc petrol engine came from the Austin A70 Hereford car. This Gipsy has the traditional leaf spring suspension. "Flexitor" rubber trailing arm suspension and the "London Taxi" 2178cc diesel engine were options. These vehicles had a strong and durable chassis but the steel bodywork was very prone to rusting. This one was no exception and was fully restored in 2003 where it has remained in a private collection ever since. Production ceased in 1968 with the British Leyland Motor Corporation merger which also encompassed the Rover car company. As Land Rover was a direct competitor and the preferred option the Austin Gipsy was discontinued. This car really is a credit to its former owner and just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands.
