First registered (V5C) 25 March 1935. A Riley 12/4 Special built on a shortened by 9”, narrow track 22T chassis (22T1359); red with Black trim. Our car has the very desirable and potent 1466 cc high twin cam engine known as the 12/4 (F6827) with twin SU carburettors, standard Armstrong Siddeley pre-selector gearbox, knock on wire wheels (4.75 – 5.00 x 18 inch), and a full tonneau. The front seats are adjustable and very comfortable. It was rebuilt by the Secretary of Riley Register from a derelict 1935 12/4 Riley Kestrel 22T, over a period of 28 years from 1978, when the mileage was recorded as 32282 miles. It has done a trouble free 4500 miles since then and runs very well. The steering, braking (Girling rod operated) and rear axle have received a thorough overhaul over the last 3 years with the previous owner They also fitted a new battery and had the radiator re-cored We have had the wheels painted black and new Blockley Tyres fitted all-round. BXA 740 was built as much as possible in the “Riley Spirit” and retains a majority of original Riley fittings. it shows a lovely patina throughout the entire car The car has a classic and desirable low line and sporty shape with full and attractive dashboard instrumentation, and comes with the benefit of not only two small rear seats (suitable for children or luggage) but also some luggage space in the rear. For more competitive activities it would benefit and look very nice with the addition of 2 aero screens. There is an old Buff Log Book (1959), some invoices of work done, and some MOT`s from 2006. The history file includes a picture of the original derelict vehicle and some pictures taken during restoration. Offered with 12 Months MOT
You’re looking at an immaculate 1964 Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 that has been restored by mark specialist and Healey guru Terry Cowan of Toy Shop Restorations. Terry’s been in the restoration business for years and is very well known in the Austin-Healey community for both his knowledge and fantastic restorations. This particular car has had a no-expense-spared restoration to the highest Austin-Healey Gold Concours standard. It has been judged by Austin-Healey experts to be a 100-point restoration, and is in many ways better than the day it left the factory. The car comes with history documenting this very comprehensive restoration, along with a parts list of everything that’s been rebuilt and replaced. This fantastic 3000 also comes with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate showing it’s a matching-numbers car, and is just as it left the factory. In most experts’ opinion, the Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 is the most desirable of the production Healeys, and this particular car optioned in Healey blue with blue upholstery and blue top is in our opinion is the prettiest of colour combinations. You could not duplicate this car for anywhere near what we’re asking. UK registered in 2016 Inspection and export enquiries welcome.
We have just taken this fabulous LSE in part exchange We have on offer this rare and well presented 1994 Range Rover LSE Automatic (soft dash model) with factory Brookland’s body kit. Registered Date 23/05/1994 Specially finished in Aston Martin Derwent Green (to match an Aston Martin of a previous owner). Sorel hide great condition The last year of LSE production saw the arrival of the ‘soft dash’ model. which had many long overdue improvements. Then when they finally got it correct they ceased production. To the non-geek. just opening the bonnet shows some resemblance of order around the engine. instead of the bolt it where it lands view which is seen in the older versions. The electrics were much more reliable. as were many other aspects of the vehicle. Brief synopsis Complete custom made stainless exhaust including manifold, which sounds addictive. Brakes / hoses / lines all recently done Recent Goodyear Wranglers on immaculate wheels Inner wings, boot floor, wheel arches and most importantly the door extensions for the LSE are all in great condition Air suspension system all intact and working perfectly Original radio cassette New power steering pipes Complete service less than 1000miles ago 12 Months MOT New upper tailgate New rubbers to rear quarter windows Headlining now showing some sagging Recent replacement halogen headlights The engine was replaced at 106000 miles. The replacement engine was a 600 mile car which was written off having been used as the hammer in a rear end ram raid! The old one had a porous block. and yes we still have the old block. A very smart and well kept Range Rover with recent bills for over £3,000 …..on the button ready to go
An absolutely stunning 1957 Bristol 405 Brief synopsis and work in current ownership. Finished in Old English White with Red leather interior. Complete engine / gearbox / overdrive rebuild New clutch Hubs rebuilt Steering system fully refurbished Complete re-wire Complete photographic restoration in previous ownership ENOTS system still fitted and fully refurbed Matching numbers Buff logbook Overdrive Original Radio Oil cooler fitted Alternator conversion Neg earth conversion Kenlow fan Long term engineer ownerships with a fantastic history file Mechanically one of the best Bristol 405’s you will find Everything on the car is in beautiful condition, the paintwork has now aged gracefully since the repaint some years ago whilst the Red leather interior sport an unrepeatable patina. Only 308 cars were built from 1954 to 1958. (including 43 in Drophead form) The 405 was the first series production Bristol provided with Laycock de Normanville overdrives in addition to their four speed manual gearboxes which makes a huge difference for relaxing cruising and fuel economy. The engine fitted to complement the gearbox was the Bristol 100B2 series two litre straight six with triple carburettors. There is a lot of glazing on this car, which no doubt accounts for its nickname the “Flying Greenhouse”. The spare wheel is stored beneath the nearside front wing locker and the battery in the offside so yielding more usable boot area. Bristol were able to achieve a remarkably low drag coefficient for the time, one not bettered in production saloon cars for many years. The lightweight aluminum body has fabulous tail fins and the build quality exceeds a classic Aston DB and is at least the equal of a Rolls-Royce or Bentley of the same era. The steering wheel is a delight to use with the leather covered spokes being perfect for your hands, the hand position would approximate the “Ram’s Horn” yoke on the Concorde which was also part manufactured at Filton. The last of the real Bristols. Both body and engine were completely built by Bristol rather than farmed out as per the later cars.

Just arrived – more information to follow. When Datsun launched the 240Z in 1969 the Japanese firm established itself as a major force to be reckoned with in the sports/GT market. Boasting a 2.4-litre, overhead-camshaft, six-cylinder engine, five-speed manual (or three-speed automatic) transmission, independent suspension all round and a high trim level as standard, the keenly priced 240Z proved an outstanding success. The 240Z was immediately successful in motor sport, particularly in club racing and on the world rally stage. Factory prepared and run rally cars quickly gained a reputation for durability on long distance events, specially the Safari Rally where the 240Z won outright in 1971, ’72 and ’73. Leading drivers included Edgar Hermann, Rauno Aaltonen, Harry Kallstrom, Shekhar Mehta and Tony Fall. Richard Anthony ‘Tony’ Fall, a former car salesman from Bradford, was the young star of the BMC works team of the mid-1960s, achieving outright wins on five major international rallies in Mini Cooper S and Austin 1800. He subsequently drove for Lancia and Ford (6th on the London-Mexico Rally) and in 1970 was signed to the Datsun team. In a 240Z he won both the Welsh International (1971) and the Total Rally in South Africa (1972). After retiring from professional driving in 1974 he formed the Dealer Opel Team in the UK and later became motor sport manager for General Motors Europe. In 1992 he purchased the UK motor sport safety equipment company, Safety Devices. Tony died suddenly in Kenya, in December 2007, while assisting the organisers of the Historic Safari Rally. The Datsun 240Z offered for sale was built in 1997/8 by Martin Johnson to a specification similar to the original ‘works’ rally cars of the 1970s for Tony Fall to compete on historic rallies, and was driven on numerous British and European national and international events, including at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Tony Fall Datsun has most recently been in the care of BTR Preparations, of Castleford, West Yorkshire. Of unknown capacity, the engine incorporates a race camshaft; modified and polished cylinder head; high-compression racing pistons; correct specification carburettors; and an extractor exhaust manifold. The car is described by BTR as a ‘very torquey and strong unit when compared with fully modified 2.85-litre rally engines’. Replaced in January 2011, the clutch is an AP Racing twin-plate item while the gearbox is a very rare works-specification, close-ratio, five-speed synchromesh unit. The ‘box was fully serviced by Datsun preparation expert Laurence Evans (Star Motorsport, Coalville, Leicestershire) prior to its last event. Fitted with a limited slip differential, the rear axle has been up-rated with the stronger 280Z Tripode/Hookes joint sliding-spline half-shafts. The suspension struts incorporate Bilstein inserts with motor sport springs, appropriate for UK Historic Rally regulations and particularly for gravel and road use, while the anti-roll bars are original. The rear damper insert bodies have been modified to add grease nipples between the bushes, as ‘stiction’ was a ‘designed in’ problem with the rear strut. The geometry was last set for the 2007 Rally Britannia’s asphalt conditions. Tony Fall’s own steering, suspension geometry and friction reduction modifications are incorporated to improve ‘driveability’. The steering features a high-ratio rack with the front suspension modified to reduce bump steer and to rectify a lack of Ackerman geometry. (Both design faults of the original car.) The steering arm/bottom ball joint fixture (bolted to the strut base) is unique to this car. AP Racing discs and callipers provide stopping power at the front, while the rear disc brake conversion is of unknown make. Other noteworthy features include a Motorsport exhaust system, skidded appropriately; substantial sump, rear differential and fuel tank guards; and Safety Devices roll cage, fire extinguishers and seat belts. (The extinguishers will require servicing before the car can be used on an MSA event.) The car rolls on Japanese-made ‘works’ specification wheels and there are multiple sets of wheels and tyres suitable for various events. Rarely found Japanese homologation papers are included within the vast paperwork file. Currently prepared for British historic rallying with paperwork including RAC MSA documentation and copies of the original FIA homologation papers. Overall a very rare 240z with eligibility to important events backed up with significant history and paperwork. A rare find and perfect for the avid collector.
