1955 Morris Minor SII 'Split Screen' Convertible Conversion

1955 Morris Minor SII 'Split Screen' Convertible Conversion

Lot # 1 (Sale Order: 1 of 109)

- Dry stored as part of a private collection in recent years. Running and driving but in need of recommissioning / fettling - Believed but not warranted to have been converted by the Morris Minor Centre of Greatford, Lincs whose sticker adorns its rear window - Patinated Red upholstery, later 948cc OHV engine, previously UK reg'd as 'YSK 579' Designed by Alec Issigonis, the Morris Minor remained in production from 1948 to 1971 endearing itself to generations of motorists along the way. According to its chassis number this particular example began life as a two-door Series II Saloon. Part of a County Wexford based collection for many years, it had been reconfigured as a Convertible prior to acquisition. It is not known who carried out the work, however, the presence of a 'Morris Minor Centre of Greatford, Lincs' sticker in its plastic back window suggests that they may well have been responsible. As well as exchanging its 'tin top' for a 'soft top' the four-seater has been upgraded with a later and more powerful A-series OHV four-cylinder engine. Flashing indicators have been added for safety and the dashboard updated too. The red interior trim is tired as is the vinyl roof which will need repairing or replacing. Starting readily upon inspection, the Morris felt OK with regard to its clutch and brakes but will need recommissioning prior to road use. A highly affordable and appealing four-seater Convertible. Not one for the purists but potentially great fun nonetheless. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1979 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow II

Lot # 4 (Sale Order: 4 of 109)

- Finished in dark blue with grey leather upholstery - Offered with original owners wallet with handbooks and well stamped service book - Described as having "excellent" engine, transmission, electrical equipment and interior trim Successor to the long-running Silver Cloud, the Silver Shadow was launched in October 1965 although development prototypes had been testing since the summer of 1957.

This Shadow II is finished in dark blue with grey leather upholstery and is described by the vendor as being "excellent" with regards to the engine, transmission, electrical equipment, and interior trim with "very good" paintwork and bodywork. Offered with a collection of old MOT certificates and owners wallet with handbooks and well stamped service book this potentially inexpensive entry to the exclusive world of Rolls-Royce motoring is offered for sale with an MOT certificate showing no advisories valid until May 2018.

1969 Triumph 2000 Saloon

1969 Triumph 2000 Saloon

Lot # 5 (Sale Order: 5 of 109)

Triumph's big Michelotti-penned Saloon was manufactured from 1963 to 1977. Of robust construction, it was quickly turned into a rally car, both by the Works team and private individuals. The most famous result was the 2nd/4th places of the 2.5PI version on the 1970 London To Mexico World Cup Rally, but plenty of other successes were achieved by both the 2000 and 2.5PI, spawning numerous evocations of which 'BPO 375G' is one. A 1969 model 2000, it is finished in 'Works' Blue, trimmed in Blue cloth and rides on Minilite-style wheels. The subject of an older restoration, it features a stage 1 tuned engine, stiffened and lowered suspension, period-style wing mirrors, and five auxiliary front lights. The vendor classes most aspects of the car as 'good', and believes the indicated mileage of 39,000 miles to be genuine, and is selling the Triumph complete with its original bumpers and an MOT valid to June 14, 2018.

1958 Fiat 600 Multipla

1958 Fiat 600 Multipla

Lot # 6 (Sale Order: 6 of 109)

- Ground breaking MPV design able to accommodate six people despite its 2m wheelbase - Reportedly displayed in a Dutch microcar museum before journeying to Eire via Poland - Running and driving but in need of extensive restoration Introduced at the January 1956 Brussels Salon, the Fiat 600 Multipla was ingeniously packaged. Despite sitting on a two metre wheelbase, the newcomer could accommodate up to six people. Borrowing the independent double wishbone front suspension and steering set-up from the Fiat 1100 but otherwise utilising the same rear suspension, 663cc OHV engine and four-speed manual transmission (albeit with a lower final drive) as its 600 saloon sibling, the Multipla could be had in 4/5-seater, 6-seater or Taxi guises. Road tested by Motor magazine, the ground breaking MPV was found to be capable of 57mph and 38mpg. Updated to 600D specification in 1960, the Multipla remained in production until the decade's end. Finished in Dark Blue over White with Black upholstery, this particular left-hand drive example is self-evidently a restoration project. Understood to have been displayed in a Dutch microcar museum before journeying to Eire via Poland, it is a six-seater version the rear two rows of which fold flat. Currently running and driving, this characterful Fiat is described by the vendor as being in 'poor' (bodywork, paintwork, electrical equipment), 'average' (interior trim) or 'good' (engine, gearbox) condition. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1930 Morris Minor OHC Coachbuilt Saloon

1930 Morris Minor OHC Coachbuilt Saloon

Lot # 7 (Sale Order: 7 of 109)

- Rare surviving Coachbuilt Saloon complete with folding 'Kopalapso' roof - Advanced overhead camshaft engine inspired by a WW1 aeronautical Hispano-Suiza design and shared with the MG M-Type sports car - The subject of much past restoration work but pleasingly retains its original rubber running board inserts and 'cammy' engine etc - Brown leatherette upholstery, opening windscreen, brand new 12volt dynamo Introduced at the October 1928 Olympia Motor Show, the Morris Minor was conceived as an altogether more sophisticated rival to the Austin 7. Influenced by a Hispano-Suiza World War I aero engine design, the newcomer's advanced overhead camshaft 850cc four-cylinder powerplant was shared with the MG M-Type sports car. Like a big car in miniature, the Minor featured a ladder frame chassis equipped with all-round semi-elliptic leaf-sprung suspension and four-wheel drum brakes. Available with a choice of open or closed bodywork, the coachbuilt steel saloon derivative was elegant, practical and well-finished. It could also be specified with a fold-back 'Kopalapso' roof for those who wanted to augment the airflow offered by the standard fit opening windscreen. Faced with a marginal per unit profit margin and instances of oil leaking down the drive shaft from the camshaft bevel into the dynamo (a non-issue these days thanks to modern 'O' rings), Morris decided to launch a cheaper sidevalve version during 1931. Thus, just 39,087 'Cammy' Minors were produced over a four-year production run. Finished in Maroon over Black with Brown leatherette upholstery, this particular Coachbuilt Saloon example sports a winged calormeter, 'Kopalapso' fold-back roof, rear-mounted spare wheel and what appear to be the original rubber inserts to its running boards. First road registered as 'WE 9758' by Sheffield County Council on 14th October 1930, the diminutive four-seater has self-evidently been treated to much past restoration work. Further improved by the vendor thanks to the installation of a new 12-volt dynamo, the Morris started readily upon inspection and looks to pleasingly retain its factory-fitted engine (number U29724). A quite delightful Vintage Saloon, this rare surviving 'Cammy' Minor is offered for sale with workshop manual and original instruction book.

1926 Morris Cowley 'Bullnose' Tourer

1926 Morris Cowley 'Bullnose' Tourer

Lot # 8 (Sale Order: 8 of 109)

- Dispatched by Morris Motors from their Cowley Works on May 31st 1926 - First road registered as 'EY 2961' by Anglesey County Council on October 14th 1926 - Still fitted with its original engine (number 168519) and 'on the button' - Acquired by its last registered keeper in 1978 and known to The Bullnose Morris Club since then - Treated to much restoration and maintenance work over the past 39 years William Morris and Hans Landstad are said to have conceived the Cowley as a companion model to the Oxford whilst aboard the 'Mauretania' ocean liner in August 1914. Their transatlantic foray was to secure a supply of engines from Continental of Detroit at £18 each. After WW1, Morris had the Cowley's redoubtable four-cylinder sidevalve engine made by the French Hotchkiss Company's Coventry plant. According to a letter on file from the Registrar of The Bullnose Morris Club, Mrs Margaret Goding, this particular example was built on May 21st 1926. Known to the Club since 1978 when Gareth Morgan of Caernarfon brought its survival to their attention, the Morris remains registered in his name to this day. Accompanying invoices from The Cooke Group and others show that Mr Morgan spent a considerable time restoring the car. Indeed, it was not until September 1st 2001 that the DVLA re-registered the two-seater plus dickey for road use. Research done via the Anglesey County Record Office allowed him to reunite the Morris with its original 'EY 2961' number plate some five years later. Pleasingly retaining its factory-fitted engine (number 168519), the Cowley started readily upon inspection. Finished in Blue over Black with Blue upholstery and a Black hood, the Bullnose now presents as an older restoration. Nicely detailed, it sports a calormeter mascot, side-mounted spare wheel, klaxon horn, spare fuel can and four-wheel drum brakes. The Vintage Sports Car Club Eligibility Document which the Morris was issued with during April 2007 lists its engine crankcase, gearbox casing, back axle casing, front axle and chassis as all being original. The Bullnose Morris remains among Britain's favourite Vintage cars and looking over 'EY 2961' it is not hard to see why! Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, correspondence dating back to 1979, numerous bills and assorted old MOTs / tax discs. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1950 Jaguar MK V 3.5 Litre Saloon

1950 Jaguar MK V 3.5 Litre Saloon

Lot # 9 (Sale Order: 9 of 109)

- Heritage Certificate and detailed history file - Repainted in Ivory White retaining the original tan interior - Carburettors and dynamo rebuilt, said to drive "very well" Jaguar's post-war offering remained largely unchanged until the 1948 Motor Show which, though forever associated with the launch of the sensational XK120 Roadster, also saw the unveiling of the MKV range of Saloons and Drophead Coupes. Though stylistically evolved from the MKIVs, the MKVs were based on an all-new box-section chassis. They also featured the independent front suspension set-up that William Heynes had begun developing in the 1930s, which comprised double wishbones and torsion bar springing. Braking was now hydraulically operated. Unlike the XK120 that featured the all new DOHC XK engine, power for MKV models was supplied by the OHV six-cylinder 2.5 and 3.5-litre units from the MKIV, the output of which was 104 and 126bhp respectively. The new all-steel body had a much more contemporary appearance, courtesy of its squatter radiator grille, more heavily raked windscreen, faired in headlights, 16 (as opposed to 18 inch) wheels, deeper bumpers, rear wheel spats etc. A 3.5-litre example tested by The Motor in 1949 recorded 20.4 seconds for the dash to 60mph and a top speed of 90mph. Originally finished in black, NHU 743 was supplied new via Henleys Ltd of London in 1950. The car was repainted in Ivory White in 1980 and retains its original Tan leather interior. A very well-maintained example, it has covered just c.105,000 miles in its 67 year life, the vendor informing us the car "drives very well", having been subject to a recent carburettor and dynamo overhaul together with the fitment of new engine mounts. The 3.5 litre engine is coupled to the original four speed transmission whilst starting is aided by an aftermarket electric choke. Offered with Swansea V5C, original owner's manual, Heritage Certificate and a detailed history file which includes many previous invoices and old MOTs. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

Unlike the XK120 that featured the all new DOHC XK engine, power for MKV models was supplied by the OHV six-cylinder 2.5 and 3.5-litre units from the MKIV, the output of which was 104 and 126bhp respectively. The new all-steel body had a much more contemporary appearance, courtesy of its squatter radiator grille, more heavily raked windscreen, faired in headlights, 16 (as opposed to 18 inch) wheels, deeper bumpers, rear wheel spats etc. A 3.5-litre example tested by The Motor in 1949 recorded 20.4 seconds for the dash to 60mph and a top speed of 90mph. Originally finished in black, NHU 743 was supplied new via Henleys Ltd of London in 1950. The car was repainted in Ivory White in 1980 and retains its original Tan leather interior. A very well-maintained example, it has covered just c.105,000 miles in its 67 year life, the vendor informing us the car "drives very well", having been subject to a recent carburettor and dynamo overhaul together with the fitment of new engine mounts. The 3.5 litre engine is coupled to the original four speed transmission whilst starting is aided by an aftermarket electric choke. Offered with Swansea V5C, original owner's manual, Heritage Certificate and a detailed history file which includes many previous invoices and old MOTs.

1950 Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible

1950 Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible

Lot # 10 (Sale Order: 10 of 109)

- Part of a private collection for many years. Currently running but would benefit from recommissioning / fettling - 1 of just 3,718 made and resident in Eire since 1995 (previously UK reg'd as 'GCA 570') - Black upholstery piped in red, older restoration, 10,555 unwarranted miles Aimed squarely at the American market, the Austin A90 Atlantic Convertible was a brave gamble that did not pay off. Intended to generate a steady flow of US dollars and so satisfy the British government's ruthless 'export or die' edict, its flamboyant steel bodywork was a riot of bulbous curves, swooping lines and chrome accents. Launched at the 1948 London Motor Show, the Atlantic was underpinned by a rigid cruciform-braced chassis equipped with independent coil-sprung front suspension, a leaf-sprung 'live' rear axle and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a 2660cc OHV four-cylinder engine mated to four-speed column-change manual transmission, it was more boulevardier than sports car. Not that this stopped Austin from pounding one round the Indianapolis Speedway for seven days non-stop! A feat that not only underlined the model's 92mph top speed but also yielded an impressive sixty-three stock car records (the convertible in question managing to average 70.54mph including all stops over its marathon 168-hour run). Although, joined by a companion Sports Saloon in September 1949, the Atlantic failed to capture the American public's imagination or wallets (its failure ironically being blamed on a lack of 'Britishness'). Thus, by the time production ceased in 1952 just 7,981 are thought to have been made (3,718 'soft-tops' and 4,263 'tin-tops') Forming part of a County Wexford based collection for the past twenty-two years, this particular example was previously UK registered as 'GCA 570'. Understood to have been repainted from Red to its current Old English White livery during 1994, the Austin sports Black upholstery piped in Red and a Black hood. Presenting as an older restoration, the A90 Atlantic was seemingly last driven for any real distance in Eire during 2010. Running upon inspection, it would nevertheless benefit from recommissioning prior to road use (the petrol smelt notably stale).

1910 Talbot 4AB Waggonette

1910 Talbot 4AB Waggonette

Lot # 11 (Sale Order: 11 of 109)

Cl£ment-Talbot (later just Talbot and then Sunbeam-Talbot) was a British manufacturer based in North Kensington, London. Founded in 1903 by a syndicate financed by the Earl of Shrewsbury and Talbot, it initially offered cars assembled from components produced by the French company Cl£ment-Bayard, but the percentage of British-made content was quickly increased. As befitted the times, Talbot went on to manufacture a wide variety of models powered by engines ranging from a diminutive 7hp twin-cylinder unit to a mighty 60hp four-cylinder one. The brand's heyday was arguably the early '30s when the Fox & Nicholl-prepared 105 and 110 team cars fared so well in racing. This fascinating 12hp Talbot was apparently delivered in chassis form to The Western Motor Company of Glasgow in February 1910, and is known to have served in France as an ambulance during WWI. The current rear entry Waggonnette body is presumed to have been a post-1918 addition and was fitted to the car when it was unearthed in Scotland during the 1970s. A restoration ensued and the refurbished Talbot is understood to have featured in the 1978 film version of the Thirty-Nine Steps. 'HS 316' is finished in Cream over Brown and trimmed in imitation Brown leather. The venerable Waggonnette remained in its previous ownership from 1986 until 2015, when it was purchased by the vendor at our October Duxford sale. He has subsequently fully overhauled the engine and gearbox and fitted a starter motor, and presently views the coachwork, paintwork, interior trim, four-cylinder engine and transmission as all being in 'good' order. Having enjoyed the Talbot both on the road and in a VCC rally, he's sadly come to the conclusion he's 'too old' for such pastimes. 'HS 316' is therefore now offered complete with Veteran Car Club of Great Britain dating certificate and at No Reserve. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1943 Ford GPW Jeep

1943 Ford GPW Jeep

Lot # 12 (Sale Order: 12 of 109)

- Part of a private collection for the last ten years and used at various Goodwood Revival meetings - Treated to an extensive 'chassis up, body off' restoration by a previous keeper - UK road registered since 1960 and understood to be ex-British Armed Forces Arguably more iconic than a Sherman Tank or P-51 Mustang, the Jeep is for many the definitive WW2 vehicle. Equipped with a torquey L-headed 2.2-litre engine driving all four wheels via a three-speed manual box and two-speed transfer case, the tough, go anywhere four-seater did its job exceptionally well. By the end of the war, 647,870 Jeeps had been produced - 281,448 of which were manufactured by Ford. According to a brass Ministry of Supply plaque affixed to its inner wing, this particular example - chassis GPW95571 - previously bore the British military registration number '19-YH-26' and was treated to an overhaul in March 1955 (some four years before the Ministry was disbanded). Demobbed and granted the civilian number plate XOR 633' by Hampshire County Council on 8th February 1960, photographs on file suggest that the Jeep underwent a chassis up, body off' restoration in the past. Accompanying invoices from Jeep & Dodge Specialist Dallas Auto Parts of Newbury show that penultimate keeper M. Haynes had them overhaul the brake system, fit a new engine timing chain, carry out a total rewiring, install a new winter canvas kit and supply a new dynamo etc between 1999 and 2004. Subsequent custodian Christopher Golding of Bristol is understood to have further improved the Ford before selling it to the vendor in 2007. Part of an impressive private collection for the past decade, XOR 633' has been used to entertain his grandchildren and as period transport at the Goodwood Revival etc. The springs have been exchanged, a transfer case oil leak cured and the engine overhauled in 2014 (reground crankshaft, re-honed bores, new pistons / rings / valves) but otherwise he has not had cause to touch the Jeep which still presents very well. Among the smarter examples we have encountered and boasting a UK history that dates back to the 1950s, it has charm aplenty! PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl.

1933 Lincoln Model KA Town Sedan

1933 Lincoln Model KA Town Sedan

Lot # 13 (Sale Order: 13 of 109)

- Understood to have been restored between the '70s and '90s - A credible 50,852 recorded miles - Potential demand for use in TV and film work This splendid, lefthand drive, matching numbers V12 Lincoln is understood to be #93 of just 201 1933 KA models built in the 514 body style by Murray, so thought by now to be a pretty rare example. With huge street presence, that evokes scenes from the famous film and TV series The Untouchables, concerning the prohibition era of America, 'YWG 366' is finished in the striking combination of Black and Red and trimmed in Beige cloth. The restoration apparently carried out between the '70s and '90s would appear to have been of a high standard and has stood the test of time well, such that the car is currently regarded by the vendor as having: 'excellent' 6.3-litre engine and three-speed manual transmission, 'very good to excellent' bodywork and 'good' paintwork and interior trim. The Lincoln has only resided in the UK since last year and, while its early history is unknown, is understood to have belonged to a Kansas-based enthusiast from 1975 before moving to Colorado in 1987 and then Atlanta in 1999, where it had two consecutive keepers. The indicated mileage of 50,852 is undocumented, but it is certainly credible bearing in mind the Lincoln's current condition. The vendor apparently used it for his son's wedding and one can imagine there being plenty of potential demand for its use in similar events or TV and film work. Alternatively it would make a great addition to any private collection. Lincoln's K Series cars were produced from 1931 to 1940 and could be purchased with factory bodies or bespoke coachwork like the sale car. The KA model was initially powered by an L-head V8 engine of 6.3-litres but this was superseded by a V12 unit of almost identical capacity for 1933 in order to compete with similarly-engined rivals from Cadillac, Rolls-Royce etc. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl.

1966 Jaguar MK II

1966 Jaguar MK II

Lot # 14 (Sale Order: 14 of 109)

- Treated to an extensive restoration in 2008 that included a bare metal respray - Interior retrim by B.W Cates of Bournemouth and new wire wheels in 2012 - Offered with a collection of invoices, MOT's and photographs of the restoration Featuring notably slimmer roof pillars than its MKI forebear, the immortal Jaguar MKII was as airy on the inside as it was elegant on the outside. Its monocoque bodyshell was equipped with independent coil-sprung front suspension and a well-located live rear axle, 12-inch disc brakes all round and recirculating ball steering. The model could be specified with a 2.4, 3.4 or 3.8-litre version of Jaguar's race-proved, DOHC inline, six-cylinder XK engine. The interior was quintessentially British with its sumptuous leather-covered seats, polished wood facia and door cappings, comprehensive instrumentation and impressive row of auxiliary toggle switches. The attention to detail and build quality of the MKII were remarkable for the price being asked (just £1,779 0s 10d including taxes even for the 3.8) - these cars punched above their weight. Equipped with the 220bhp 3.8-litre engine, the Jaguar was capable of sprinting to 60mph in as little as 8.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 125mph - small wonder that it was the first choice of both bank robbers and the police of the period! It was also extremely popular with the public, outselling its smaller-engined siblings, with 30,141 being produced between 1959 and 1967. 'KGK 34D' is a right-hand drive 1966 Jaguar MKII which left the factory as a 3.8 litre model fitted with the desirable four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox. It was reportedly treated to an extensive restoration in 2008 that included a bare metal respray and overhaul of its replacement 3.4 litre MKII engine. Having received an interior retrim in 2012 by B.W Cates of Bournemouth and new wire wheels, the vendor now regards the bodywork, paintwork, trim, engine and gearbox as all being in "very good" order and is offering the Jaguar with a collection of invoices and old MOT's, photographs of the restoration and a current MOT certificate into July 2018. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1974 BMW 3.0 CSi

1974 BMW 3.0 CSi

Lot # 15 (Sale Order: 15 of 109)

- 63,000 recorded miles, 5 previous keepers and MOT'd into March 2018 - Subject to an extensive bodywork restoration, glass out re-repaint and re-trimmed boot - Fitted with a stainless-steel exhaust, refurbished wheels shod with fresh tyres BMW's so called 'New Class' compact Saloons and Coupes manufactured between 1962 and 1975 quite simply saved the company from extinction. Introduced in 1965, the 2000C and 2000CS Coupes featured distinctive-looking Karmann-built bodies and luxurious interiors and, having set a trend, were superseded in 1968 by the first of the E9 Coupes - the 2800CS. The length and wheelbase of the newcomer were extended to accommodate the 2788cc straight-six engine from the E3 Saloon, and the nose of the Karmann monocoque body was restyled to echo that of its four-door sibling. The 170bhp of the new, silky smooth powerplant was sufficient to propel the handsome Coupe to 60mph in 8.5 seconds and on to a top speed of a whisker under 130mph. The fully independent suspension was by MacPherson struts up front and semi-trailing arms at the rear. Braking was still by disc/drums and the steering by a power-assisted ball and nut system. The 2800CS was supplanted by the 3.0CS and 3.0CSi in 1971, for which the engine was bored out to give a capacity of 2986cc - in fuel-injected CSi guise, this produced 200bhp at 5,000rpm. Finished in Silver with Blue velour interior, 'XGT 454N' displays a credible but unwarranted 62,539 miles and has just been treated to an extensive bodywork restoration, glass out re-repaint and re-trimmed boot. Fitted with a stainless-steel exhaust, electronic ignition and riding on refurbished wheels shod with fresh tyres, the BMW is understood to have benefited from a brake overhaul in c.2011 before entering the current ownership. Recently serviced, the 3.0CSi is described by the vendor as being in 'excellent' condition with regard to its bodywork, engine, gearbox, interior, electrical equipment and paintwork. Offered with V5C, collection of invoices, BMW certificate and tool kit, this stylish coupe is offered with a MOT certificate into March 2018.

2014 Nostalgia XK120 Evocation

2014 Nostalgia XK120 Evocation

Lot # 16 (Sale Order: 16 of 109)

- This smart looking example is finished in light blue matched to a dark blue interior - Completed in 2013 and subsequently IVA tested and registered in 2014 - Offered with history file comprising of a collection of invoices, build manual, V5C and a current MOT certificate The stunning-looking XK120 Roadster caused a sensation when launched at the 1948 London Motorshow. Capable of 120mph, it immediately assumed the mantle of the world's fastest production car. The Fixed Head Coupe followed in 1951 followed by the Drophead Coupe in 1953. The key to the newcomer's sensational performance was its all-new, alloy-headed DOHC 3.4-litre, straight-six engine; the basic design of which successfully powered a range of Jaguars until the late '80s. The suspension was independent by wishbones and torsion bars at the front and by live axle on semi-elliptic leaf springs at the rear. Steering was by recirculating ball and braking courtesy of Lockheed hydraulic drums all round. The ever-rising prices of original XK120s have inevitably swelled the market for copies, and this immaculate right-hand drive example is a Roadster evocation manufactured by the respected Nostalgia concern of Taunton, Somerset. This smart looking example is finished in light blue matched to a dark blue interior. It's understood the donor vehicle was a 1977 Jaguar XJ6 Series Two 4.2 litre and 'VSU 120' was completed in 2013 and subsequently IVA tested and registered in 2014.

- This smart looking example is finished in light blue matched to a dark blue interior - Completed in 2013 and subsequently IVA tested and registered in 2014 - ...moreOffered with history file comprising of a collection of invoices, build manual, V5C and a current MOT certificate The stunning-looking XK120 Roadster caused a sensation when launched at the 1948 London Motorshow. Capable of 120mph, it immediately assumed the mantle of the world's fastest production car. The Fixed Head Coupe followed in 1951 followed by the Drophead Coupe in 1953. The key to the newcomer's sensational performance was its all-new, alloy-headed DOHC 3.4-litre, straight-six engine; the basic design of which successfully powered a range of Jaguars until the late '80s. The suspension was independent by wishbones and torsion bars at the front and by live axle on semi-elliptic leaf springs at the rear. Steering was by recirculating ball and braking courtesy of Lockheed hydraulic drums all round. The ever-rising prices of original XK120s have inevitably swelled the market for copies, and this immaculate right-hand drive example is a Roadster evocation manufactured by the respected Nostalgia concern of Taunton, Somerset. This smart looking example is finished in light blue matched to a dark blue interior. It's understood the donor vehicle was a 1977 Jaguar XJ6 Series Two 4.2 litre and 'VSU 120' was completed in 2013 and subsequently IVA tested and registered in 2014. Offered with history file comprising of a collection of invoices, build manual, V5C and a current MOT certificate, the vendor currently grades the car as having "excellent" bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, engine and manual gearbox.

1965 Lancia Flavia Sport Zagato

1965 Lancia Flavia Sport Zagato

Lot # 17 (Sale Order: 17 of 109)

- One of just 539 Zagato styled 1.8 Flavia Sport's built of which even fewer left the factory in right hand drive configuration - Believed to have been supplied new in Italy on export plates and promptly exported to Zimbabwe, where it was first registered in January 1966 - Purchased by the vendor in Zimbabwe in 1993, restored there between 1995-98, and recent £12,300 expenditure at leading UK Lancia specialist Omicron Engineering This very rare Lancia is one of just 539 Flavias that were styled and constructed by the famous Italian carrozzeria Zagato. Just an extremely small percentage of that number that left the factory with the steering wheel installed on the right hand side of the dashboard, such as this car. It appears from the copy of the Zimbabwean registration document that we have that the car was originally registered in Italy on EE export plates and then registered in Zimbabwe in January 1966. It was not uncommon for people working in foreign countries to purchase their Italian cars in Italy, collect them from the factory, and then drive or travel with them to their place of work, and that is possibly the exiting start in life that this Flavia had. According to the English vendor, after spending the majority of its life at nearly 5,000 feet above sea level in the dry area of Salisbury (now Harare), Zimbabwe, he acquired the car in 1993 while living in Zimbabwe. An aircraft engineer and pilot by profession, the vendor was easily qualified to tackle the restoration on the car, and during the work between 1995 and 1998, he sensibly strengthened the apparently notoriously weak sills in the process. When the vendor and his wife returned to England in 2015 for their retirement, the Flavia tagged along and was registered with the DVLA in September of that year. Conveniently, the UK's leading Lancia specialist was just down the road from their new home so the car was taken to Omicron Engineering for inspection and preparation for MOT and UK registration. Over the following six months more than £12,000 was spent on various jobs including overhauling the cylinder heads, steering box, water pump, brake servo and brake master cylinder, and having the fuel tank professionally cleaned inside and sealed. The vendor believes that the car is now ready to be enjoyed as Lancia intended and he describes the car as having "excellent" body and paint work, and engine and transmission.

1968 Chevrolet Camaro 327 Convertible

1968 Chevrolet Camaro 327 Convertible

Lot # 18 (Sale Order: 18 of 109)

- 327 V8, Powerglide automatic transmission and electric hood - 74,633 miles, original colours of white with blue stripes, power steering - Extremely smart example of this rare option convertible Concerned at the runaway success of Ford's pony car, the ubiquitous Mustang, General Motors brought the first generation Camaro to market in the September of 1966. It was based on a new rear-wheel drive platform and shared both that and a variety of other major components with the Pontiac Firebird. The 2+2 was available as a two-door Coupe or Convertible and came with a choice of six powerplants, from a 4.1-litre straight six to a 6.5-litre V8, and three trim and tuning packages - RS, SS and Z28. Like Ford, Chevrolet believed the old adage that 'whatever won on Sunday sold on Monday' and wasted little time in taking to the tracks. In the US, this meant contesting the SCCA-sanctioned Trans-Am Series. Working with Roger Penske, they operated an unofficially factory-backed team, winning the title outright with Mark Donohue at the wheel. Imported to the UK in 2012 from sunny Florida, this rare and unmolested Camaro 327 is finished in its original colour scheme of white with blue stripes complimented by a blue interior and white electric roof. Powered by a 327 V8 (5343cc) matched to Powerglide automatic transmission, options include power steering and the car rides on its correct pattern wheels. The subject of a suspension overhaul c.2012, it presents extremely well with "very good" paintwork and "excellent" bodywork. Used sparingly in the current ownership it is accompanied by a Swansea V5 document, MoT to 30th April 2018, import documentation and assorted expired MoTs confirming the mileage of c.74,600.

1951 HRG 1500 Four-Seater Tourer

1951 HRG 1500 Four-Seater Tourer

Lot # 19 (Sale Order: 19 of 109)

According to Ian Dussek's definitive work HRG, The Sportsman's Ideal', it was the return home of Antipodean WW2 flying ace F.A.O. Tony' Gaze in 1947 and his subsequent success aboard one of the first three HRG Aerodynamic models that helped the Tolworth-based marque get a toehold in the Australian market. Gaze joined the Melbourne firm of Brown & Dureau for 1949 and persuaded his new employer to import ten Aerodynamic chassis to be bodied locally. Some purchasers opted for single-seater coachwork but Brown & Dureau are reported to have commissioned Gordon Stewart of Sydney to clothe chassis W185 as a four-seater Tourer. Looking not unlike a pre-WW2 Aston Martin or Lagonda, the resultant machine was reputedly rallied by multiple Australian Grand Prix winner Doug Whiteford and Reg Nutt before Brown & Dureau sold it to John P. Ward of Toorak on 21st February 1952. Thereafter, the HRG passed through the hands of Alexander Fraser, Archibald Johnston Jnr (who used it to contest the Moomba Tourist Trophy at Albert Park on March 26th 1955), Francis Kolbe, Alroy Car Sales, Michael Thomas, Lesley Palmer, Le Mans Motors and David Eggleton. The latter acquired chassis W185 on 7th August 1956 and kept it for over fifty years. Laid-up during the 1960s and displayed at the National Automobile Museum of Tasmania for a time, the HRG had been partially restored by the time it finally left Mr Eggleton's care in 2009. Mechanically overhauled, rewired, repainted and reupholstered by the time that previous keeper Keith Barker of Henley-on-Thames repatriated it five years ago, the four-seater was further improved during his tenure. Entrusted to Total Trim Solutions of Thatcham, the HRG gained a new hood, tonneau, hood bag and sidescreens (£5,815), while Fenn Motor Works Ltd of Reading overhauled its starter motor (£634.40). Marles Steering Boxes of Hamnish supplied a new steering wheel, steering wheel boss and steering box complete with pitman arm (£6,054) not to mention five new Avon Tourist 550 x 16 tyres (£885). The same company got the dampers working properly and machined new hubs for the rear axle (£3,270). Benefiting from attention to its radiator and water pump since entering the current ownership in August last year, 375 YUP' is pleasingly understood to still retain its factory-fitted chassis, 1500cc Singer engine, gearbox and differential. The sole HRG known to have been bodied as a four-seater when new, chassis W185 has the added advantage of period competition history. Illustrated on p.318 of Mr Dussek's marque history, it is offered for sale with original Australian Owner's Certificate (dating from 1951), UK V5C Registration Document and numerous bills / invoices. An elegant and extremely rare sportscar and seemingly the only one which allows the Hurg' experience to be shared with more than one friend or family member!

1955 MG TF 1500

1955 MG TF 1500

Lot # 20 (Sale Order: 20 of 109)

- Extensive marque specialist restoration between 2009 and 2011 - Overhauled engine, suspension and braking systems - Five-speed gearbox, re-trimmed interior and full weather equipment By mid-1950, a MKII version of the MG TD was produced alongside the standard car. It featured a range of optional upgrades including: raised compression ratio of 8:1, twin fuel pumps, revised dampers, higher final drive ratio etc, and it was this specification on which the TF of 1953 was based. Though examples are now highly sought after, the newcomer was in fact an interim model pending the arrival of the all new MGA. Fared-in headlights and a sloping radiator grille ensured more modern looks, while a new pressurised cooling system meant the external radiator cap was now a dummy. For 1954 engine capacity was enlarged to 1466cc, endowing the car with an extra 6bhp. Models fitted with this new so-called XPEG engine were dubbed TF1500s. The model gave way to the MG A in April 1955 after a total of 9,602 TFs had been produced, 3,400 of which were 1500s. Like many T Series MGs, '391 YUB' started life as a US export and was converted to righthand drive as part of an extensive marque specialist restoration between 2009 and 2011. This included: a new body tub and attendant steel panels from The Hutson Motor Company; an overhaul of the engine, suspension and braking systems; the installation of a five-speed gearbox; a retrim of the interior; and all new weather equipment. Finished in the contrasting combination of Red bodywork and Cream interior trim, the TF has apparently only driven 2500 miles since the work was completed. The vendor unsurprisingly currently classes the bodywork, paintwork, upholstery, engine and transmission as all being in 'excellent' order. He informs us that, while the car has been issued with a DVLA chassis number, the correct one is HDB26/9985, as confirmed by the T Register. This handsome-looking MG comes complete with a collection of invoices and photos of the restoration. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1987 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL

1987 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL

Lot # 21 (Sale Order: 21 of 109)

- A very special 300SL with only 24,400 miles from new - Comprehensive history file containing a detailed usage log, copies of previous V5's, approximately 15 previous MOT certificates, and old tax discs - Long-term ownerships by Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts, it is reported to retain its original tyres and front brake pads Within the volumous history file for this 300SL lies a note book that the forth owner used to fanatically document every journey they did in the car, noting the mileage covered, the reason for the journey, and the weather conditions. However, the first owner was apparently a Matthew Giles who bought E866 DPC (as it was registered then) new on August 1st 1987 and owned it until October 1992. Ownership then passed to someone from West London, but after five months it is believed to have been repossessed by the finance company and then stored for fourteen months while the hard top was retrieved. In May 1994 it was purchased by a Roger Thomas of Devon and registered with his number plate RCT 8. A copy of a maintenance invoice from this time records the mileage at about 17,300 miles. Mr Thomas seemed to struggle with the lack of space in the SL and after travelling about 1,600 miles removed RCT 8 from the car and placed an advert in the Sunday Times expressing an interest in taking a saloon car in part exchange. E660 DTT was purchased by John Earl in October 1994, the fourth owner, and was clearly cherished. He moved to Hull in May 2004 and after the car was unused during 2005 and 2006 he entered it into our auction at Duxford in October 2007. It was acquired by our Mercedes-Benz enthusiast vendor who has covered just 1,300 miles during his ten years of ownership. While not in use the SL has shared a garage in Kensington, London, with a beautiful Mercedes-Benz from the 1960's. Accompanying the car are Mr Earl's usage log book, copies of previous registration documents, about fifteen previous MOT certificates, old tax discs, a hand book and duplicate service book, a Sunday Times newspaper featuring the SL's 1994 advertisement, a 1994 maintenance invoice, a sales invoice from Mr Thomas to Mr Earl, and a spare set of keys. Low mileage SL's are a rare find and this special car would be a wonderful addition to any enthusiasts garage. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1937 MG TA

1937 MG TA

Lot # 22 (Sale Order: 22 of 109)

- Built on 19th May 1937 and supplied new to Australia - Repatriated from Melbourne by the vendor in 2000 and treated to an extensive refurbishment by Classic Restorations Ltd of Alyth the following year - Original engine overhauled by Agra Engineering of Dundee. Part of a private MG collection since 2000 The first of the famous MG T-series line, the TA was introduced in 1936. Larger, faster and more comfortable than its PB predecessor, the newcomer was powered by a MPJG 1292cc OHV engine that developed some 50bhp @ 4,800rpm. Allied to four-speed manual transmission, it endowed the two-seater with a nigh on 80mph top speed. Traditionalists may have decried the adoption of a less exotic powerplant, insulating rubber engine mounts and - after a while - synchromesh on 3rd and 4th gears but the TA had accounted for 3,003 sales by the time production ceased in 1939. According to the T-Register's (www.tregister.org) production record search facility, this particular example - chassis number 'TA 1400' - was built on 19th May 1937. Reportedly supplied new to Australia and repatriated from Melbourne by the vendor during 2000, the right-hand drive tourer was entrusted to Classic Restorations Ltd of Alyth, Perthshire the following year for 'an extensive, body off, chassis up restoration'. Finished in striking two-tone Dark Metallic Green, the two-seater is also understood to have had its original MPJG engine thoroughly overhauled at the hands of Dundee-based Agra Engineering. To the interior, the green-piped red leather upholstery is complimented by dark green carpets and a wooden dashboard. Riding on red painted wire wheels and sporting a black hood, 'AAS 491' does not want for visual drama and appears as sharp as one might expect given the cost of its refurbishment alone was reputedly £25,000 (though, that figure would be dramatically higher today). Part of the vendor's MG collection for the past seventeen years, this handsome TA is variously rated by him as 'excellent' (bodywork, paintwork, interior trim), 'very good' (engine, electrical equipment) or 'good' (four-speed manual gearbox). He summarises 'AAS 491' as 'a fabulous example of a prewar MG T Series'. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1985 Porsche 928 S2

1985 Porsche 928 S2

Lot # 23 (Sale Order: 23 of 109)

- Porsche Cars Great Britain 928 S2 press car - Recent maintenance includes new cam belt and fresh oil and filters - Offered with extensive service history Styled by American Tony Lapine, Porsche's front-engined, water-cooled, V8-powered 2+2 928 was launched at the 1977 Geneva Salon. Though about as different as could be from the ubiquitous 911 the newcomer was intended to replace, it received a rapturous reception from the press and was duly awarded the 1978 Car of The Year Award. If the model had a problem, it was that it was signed off during one major fuel crisis and launched during the next. Nevertheless, production continued for no less than 18 years, by which time some 61,000 examples had been made. It remains one of the great grand touring cars of its era and, as values have been relatively slow to rise, good examples still represent great value in today's classic marketplace. This handsome, automatic transmission S2 example hails from 1985, and has an assured place in the history of the model, as it was first registered to Porsche Cars Great Britain and for some time served as their 928 press car, sporting the registration familiar to enthusiasts nationwide - THE 928S'. Featuring sparkling Crystal Metallic Green bodywork teamed with half leather interior trim in Green and Grey, and now wearing the registration B941 FGP', the Porsche is presently regarded by the vendor as having excellent' bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, V8 engine and four-speed transmission. Recent maintenance has included a new cam belt and related ancillaries, and fresh oil and filters. The car's comprehensive specification includes the original Blaupunkt SQ 46 radio/cassette, air conditioning and heated seats, and this historic 928 is now offered complete with: a large collection of books and magazines, including the Ultimate History of Porsche, in which the car featured during its road test days; DVLA keeper history (including Porsche GB); service book with main dealer and marque specialist stamps; owner's manual pack; and current MOT. An interesting proposition for Porschephiles everywhere. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1951 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup

1951 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup

Lot # 24 (Sale Order: 24 of 109)

- Built at Chevy's Oakland, California plant during 1951 - 3.5 litre 'Stovebolt' straight-six engine allied to three-speed manual transmission - Lightly customised and eminently usable GM's Advance Design Series trucks were the company's first post-WW2 offering and billed as being 'bigger, stronger and sleeker'. Launched in 1947, they were sold with various minor changes until March 1955. This lightly customised example is finished in a notably eye-catching pale pastel shade of Turquoise and the interior is trimmed in Beige cloth. Its chassis number - 6JP114122 - relates to a 3100 model that was built at the Oakland, California plant during 1951. The Pickup bed features wooden stake sides and a wooden floor with stainless steel runners. The new front and rear bumpers are chromed steel, as per the original style, and the vehicle rides on Mohawk-shod painted steel rims adorned with large chrome hubcaps and beauty rings. This handsome and practical Pickup is powered by an original specification Stovebolt-6 214ci (3500cc), six-cylinder OHV engine allied to three-speed manual transmission and is being sold complete with brand new spare wheel and tyre. Rating the bodywork and paintwork as 'very good', the vendor considers the engine, gearbox and electrical equipment to be 'good' and the interior trim 'average'. A splendid-looking and apparently very usable truck that would make a welcome addition to any collection of Americana. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1990 Jaguar XJ-S 5.3 Convertible

1990 Jaguar XJ-S 5.3 Convertible

Lot # 25 (Sale Order: 25 of 109)

- Offered with its original wallet, handbooks and service book containing 20 entries - Current MOT certificate into June 2018 - Described as being "good" with regard to its engine, transmission, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork Introduced in Autumn 1975, the XJS replaced the immortal E-Type on the production lines and in the Jaguar catalogue. Powered by the famously silken 5343cc V12 engine, it was mainly specified with automatic transmission (a manual was available until 1979 but few were sold). Further development included the introduction of the Cabriolet model in October 1983 together with a brand new 3.6 litre engine, and then the launch of a full Convertible bodystyle in April 1988. With a full convertible roof the XJS's somewhat unusual styling finally acquired the elegance and presence expected of a Jaguar and with the standard 5.3 litre engine it backed this up with true sports car performance. Finished in Black with cream leather upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "good" condition with regard to its engine, automatic transmission, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork. Offered with its original wallet, handbooks and service book containing 20 entries plus a collection of old Tax discs G902WKJ' has a current MOT certificate into June 2018.
