We are very pleased to offer back to the market this stunning and highly collectable Mercedes 300SE Cabriolet (W111) The 300 SE of the late 1960s has been described as “The last of the great six-cylinder, two-door Mercedes.” The 300 SE represented the German automaker’s finest effort to produce the best handcrafted luxury automobile possible, using the best materials and workmanship, and was aimed directly at the world’s automotive cognoscenti. Over six years of production, only 3,127 300 SE coupes and convertibles emerged from Sindelfingen, and the most exclusive of that series was the 300 SE Cabriolet. Only 78 RHD in the world of these rare convertibles were made in 1964, with its muscular 3.0 liter 184 hp engine—lifted from the 300SL “gullwing”—and self-leveling pneumatic suspension with four wheel disc brakes, the silky-smooth four-speed automatic transmission, the best leathers, fabrics, and burled-wood veneers available all combined with a top speed of approximately 120 mph W112 300SE was the Mercedes to have in the 1960s. It was, at the time, the most expensive Mercedes-Benz one could buy, next to the venerable 600. First UK registered on 31st December 1964 our car is rumoured to have been supplied new to a diplomat who subsequently used it in South America, Australia and North America. Low ownership with 2 former keepers Somewhat down at heel when acquired by Mercedes-Benz specialist Walter Nieuwkoop during 2004, the 300SE Cabriolet's subsequent restoration was chronicled in various issues of the UK Mercedes-Benz Club's Gazette magazine. The latest owner owned the car for 4 years and prior to our purchase he carried out • rejuvenated air suspension pump • four new air suspension bags (even though only one was leaking) plus the associated pipework. • stainless steel exhaust • reconditioned automatic transmission Sold by ourselves a few months ago, delivered to our client in London and we have just managed to secure the owner a RHD 280SE 3.5V8 Cabriolet so this car is now available once again. Now back with ourselves We had just completed in preparation to be taken to South Africa. • Complete service, engine & brakes etc • Kenlowe fan fitment • Evans waterless coolant - complete water drain • Brand new white wall tyres • Re-core of the radiator • Re-connolise interior • Brand new hood storage cover • New battery and cut off switch • Brand new seat belt fitment to the front Increasingly collectible, good examples of the 300SE Cabriolet are rightly sought after. With the later and larger 280SE 3.5V8 cars now reaching 250k+ the 300SE option offers real value for money. Not to be missed and a water tight investment.

We are pleased to offer this fabulous 1958 TR3A for sale As the accompanying Heritage Certificate confirms, this TR3A was built in April 1958 and despatched to the Stanbourne Motor Company of Bournemouth. Pearl Grey with red trim, it was originally registered RBL 510 and was first owned by JH Fisher Contractors of Burghfield Common, Berkshire, as confirmed by the original green log book. JH Fisher was a company owned by Sir William Benyon, a grandson of Lord Salisbury, who also owned the 14,000 acre Englefield Estate in Berkshire and Hampshire and was to be the Tory MP for Buckingham from 1970 to 1992. Anecdotal evidence related via a previous owner states that Benyon had the car modified for competition use and campaigned it extensively before selling it in 1963, although there is no documentary evidence to substantiate this. The second owner kept the car until 1972 and the third until 2007 although it was barn stored for much of this time. The fourth owner sold it on again in 2010 by which time it was in fairly dilapidated condition. It was then treated to a total nut-and-bolt rebuild between 2010 and 2013 which has resulted in the fine specimen you see today The original engine was fully rebuilt and upgraded to 2,190cc specification which, allied to the 4-speed overdrive gearbox and front disc brakes, gives sparkling performance. The colour-coded wire wheels are shod with quality Vredestein tyres (including the boot-mounted spare), while a battery cut-off switch has also been fitted to the dash and inertia-reel seat belts installed. Since the restoration was completed, the car has covered barely 1,000 miles and is only just run-in. It comes with a good history file, including the aforementioned Heritage Certificate and original green log book Many invoices detailing the parts used in the restoration. A rare hard top with roof-mounted driving lamp and a full set of weather gear including a new hood, sidescreens and tonneau are also included. In excellent condition throughout and with a most appealing and original colour scheme Must be viewed to be appreciated Export enquiries welcome Explore your purchasing power through flexible payment plans designed specifically for this sector.

Porsche COA on file Fitted with many rare options Factory air conditioning Factory Power windows Factory 4-speed sportomatic transmission and much more! Original CSI engine (Continuous Injection System) Bosch K- Jetronic injection engine makes this a very rare car Michelin XWX tyres New Koni Shocks In 1973, Porsche offered three 911 variants: the 911T, the 911E and the 911S. The 911T was traditionally equipped with carburettors. However, in mid-1973, Porsche converted the car to Bosch's new fuel injection system named K-Jetronic a/k/a CIS (Continuous Injection System). This variant of the 911 - the 1973.5 911T with CIS - was described by Peter Zimmerman as follows: "... Finally! Porsche builds their first '10'! This is the one model that deserves its own chapter. ... All things considered, this is the smoothest, most pleasant of all early 911s to be built to date to drive. The engine, at all RPM levels, is responsive and has sufficient torque to allow use at very low engine speeds. ... The 2.4 liter displacement engine delivers enough horsepower and torque to enjoy in almost any driving situation. ... The folks at the Porsche factory knew they were building really special models." The addition of CIS boosted the car's base horsepower from 130 to 148 and made it competitive with the higher priced 911E. Interestingly, the addition of CIS gave the car an impressive fuel economy of roughly 32 mpg. Recent £8000+ spend at Paul Stephens and £1200 at Prill on service, tuning and improvements to include AC Compressor which now works faultlessly and ICE cold, LED front lamps, UK spec front and back over riders etc..... The car drives flawlessly it has just done a classic rally in Denmark and been the Skagen on the North sea and back some 3000km without fault The engine is completely tight and fully refurbished along with gearbox, brakes, fuchs wheels and the new stainless steel exhaust. This 911 wants for nothing. We are proud to offer this investment grade 911 Targa to the most sophisticated collector, investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the rarity of a Porsche in this condition.

We are delighted to offer this truly outstanding car onto the market. This is an ideal collectors piece and most certainly a car for the discerning buyer. This very original, low mileage MKI Jaguar was first registered in June 1958 and still retains its original colours of Grey with its wonderfully original Red leather upholstery and original registration mark 697 BDE. The MK1 is now being recognised as the collectors choice, for most cognoscenti the purest iteration of the breed. With its filled in rear spats and steel colour coded wheels this car fits the bill almost perfectly The first owner was Mr Hall of Pembrokeshire who kept the car for over fifteen years before selling the car to a local motor dealership in the mid 1970's. By 1975 the Jaguar mileage was just 25,615 miles and records have been kept since with the mileage now just 59,000. Between 1975 and 1999 the Jaguar covered just 13000 miles and was then sold to a QC Barrister based in Kent and Central London. Between 1999 and 2013 the Jaguar covered almost 20,000 miles and was subject of thousands of pounds worth of expenditure ensuring the car could be reliably toured and also kept in outstanding, very original order. In 2005 the MKI was awarded a first prize at a Jaguar factory concourse and invoices over this period total over £15,000. The invoices detail superb maintenance, fastidious preparation for road use and shows the owner kept up to the car with no expense spared. The most substantial work carried out over this period was an engine rebuild, gearbox overhaul and VSE cylinder head overhaul and lead free conversion. The flywheel was also refaced and balanced to the crankshaft by VSE. Other invoices cover maintenance and work to include new hoses, thermostat, steering bushes and steering column universal joints, new brake master cylinder and re-conditioned servo, re-lined brake shoes, overhauled starter motor, replacement anti roll bar bushes, new propshaft universal joints, new clutch master and slave cylinders, new flexible hoses, new track rod ends, ball joint assemblies, new exhaust mountings, new clutch assembly, regular servicing and underbody wax. 697 BDE is mechanically excellent as expected with the high level of expenditure over recent years. The engine runs superbly holding impressive oil pressure. The rebuilt unit is in top condition and benefits from the VSE rebuilt head. The gearbox is lovely to use and changes up and down smoothly, brakes, handling and steering all feel excellent and the car is a true delight on the road. This MKI is a special car and has the lovely balance of genuine originality and recent mechanical expenditure that has given the car proven reliability and contributed towards the car winning events. Top class, low mileage original cars are not easy to find and this one will not disappoint. Presentation is beautiful with lovely deep, high quality paintwork, stunning straight body panels and an exceptional straight underside. The chrome work gleams, the glass all lovely and the car has a wonderful presence. The interior is almost unrepeatable with outstanding original Red leather, stunning carpets, woodwork, gauges and is of a condition you would expect when a few years old. The car feels like a true time warp and has such an honest, high class feel that is so hard to replicate and is almost impossible to recreate with a fully restored car.

1965 230SL Pagoda finished in gold with a black interior and supplied with a black hardtop. Manual car Within the vast history file according to some documents, the bodywork was restored around 1987 - 1988, when new sills were fitted, along with an engine overhaul In April 1989, at which time the mileage was recorded as 61,340, the car was sold by Christies to a Mr and Mrs Dieter Kiel of Plymouth. During their ownership, the car was maintained fastidiously by Daley Motors of Plymouth, with every receipt & MoT documented, along with parts invoices from Mercedes-Benz. The couple were to own ‘DYX 790C' for 15 years, before selling the car in 2004, to a Mr Maurice Webb, who kept it for a further 4 years before himself selling to the next owner, a Mr S. McInerney. The latter named keeper took ownership of this 230SL until 2014 when the previous keeper purchased it. Upon purchase, they sent the car to classic Mercedes-Benz specialists, Roger Edwards Motors of Amersham, for fine tuning, and in the winter of 2014 spent £3,518 having the rear axle removed & reassembled with a new centre bush, new top mounts, replacement rubber boots all round, new shock absorbers and a new alternator fitted. When we purchased the car, it presented very well with a few minor blemishes, we inspected the car on the ramp to begin our usual pre-sale inspection only to find the floors have been welded up very poorly at some recent time in its life. Once we peeled the first layer of filler, wax oyl and sheet metal off we found it was more like a puff pastry, layers and layers of repairs. The simple answer was to start again. Since our purchase and part of our usual sales preparation we have spent vast amounts on this car to bring it up to our usual standards, we have replaced all floor and sill components, to include foot wells etc basically the centre section of the car, with this comes the door alignments which are now perfect. and we have treated her to a complete glass out re-spray to its original colour to our usual show standard. Any rubbers or components that needed replacing throughout the process have been replaced. Brand New 5 x White wall tyres really set the car off nicely Complete Service 12 Months MOT It now presents flawlessly and is ready to take and summer jaunt in its stride.

We are very pleased to offer this absolutely stunning MGA Coupe for sale Blessed with one of the most shapely silhouettes of any car ever produced, the MGA was a radical departure for MG, leaving behind the traditional ash-framed bodywork of its predecessor, the immortal ‘T-Series’. Although retaining a traditional chassis, the separate body also served as a rigid structure, its triangulated bulkhead design ensuring that it didn’t suffer from the dreaded scuttle-shake that can even be found on convertibles produced to this day. The precise rack-and-pinion steering and its lively B-series engine gave a top speed just shy of the magic ton and they sold like hot-cakes. Over 95% were exported, most bound for the US where they found willing buyers looking for something more sophisticated than their softly-sprung home-grown sports cars. This pristine RHD Coupe was one of the few that remained for the home market. Completed on 29th September 1961, it was despatched from the works on 4th October and first registered on 20th October to its first owner who kept the car until his death in around 2013. The second owner, purchased the Coupe as a retirement project through Panorama Bay in July 2014 and set to work. He totally dismantled the vehicle and commenced a ground-up renovation of the car. The results speak for themselves and its professionally applied top coat of the original Chariot Red positively gleams. Many new parts were used throughout, all fully detailed in bills and photographs on file. A lovely wood rim steering wheel has also been fitted although the original is also included if preferred. The Heritage Certificate confirms that this car is completely correct This beautifully presented car is as clean and well prepared underneath as it is on top and close inspection is highly recommended.
