This nice 2004 BMW Z4 is the desirable 2.5 I SE model, so has BM’s silky smooth 6 cylinder engine which in turn is mated to their equally smooth automatic transmission, together giving this great looking 2 seater an almost “GT” feel on the road. Fast and sure footed, capable of eating the miles with ease, all the while being cosseted by its lovely black leather interior and all the nice SE spec options it is fitted with. Coming with a fully stamped history up to 60500 in 2014, then various bills and old MOTs to back up the low recorded mileage of only 82931 now showing. Its current MOT is through to the 18th of July 2018 and from that you will see the car has only covered 37 miles in the last 8 months. This is due to its lady owner not using it as she had returned home abroad and has decided not to come back, hence the reason why it is now for sale with us. Now the negatives, while standing about it has picked up some minor car park dings and the odd scratch here and there, the worse being two soft dents on the […]
This very nice GTi Golf is slightly unusual as it is located 45minutes drive North of Glasgow in Scotland. It is essentially a one lady owner car and it is her that asked us to market the car for her, having seen our other Golfs. So please understand the price is for the car in Scotland not here in Essex. First registered 24th of October year 2000, the current owner physically collected it brand new from her local dealer ship to be used as her company car, when being sold off by the company she could not bear to loose it so bought it for herself. Apart from a brief spell where she lent the car to her daughter to use, so listed her as the keeper, it has been in her name ever since. Now with 122K on the clock it comes with a full service history, with receipts and in her own words “Still drives very well indeed!” As you can see in the pictures the car is completely stock/standard having never had anything changed from original with just the beginnings of some corrosion in a couple of places. Interior is very good needing nothing more than a […]
This now very rare 1965 Sunbeam Alpine Convertible came to us after standing for many moons un-used in a garage locally. It was all complete but someone at some point had started to restore it, then bailed out. We basically started again! It has had new rear arches and outer sills, the common rust on the top of the wings was cut out and replaced with metal. The underneath of the car was excellent and needed little more doing by us past a clean-up and some basic renovation, mechanically the car was very strong already with all joints etc in good order. The boot floor is excellent and we are in the process of replacing the rubbers on the fuel pipe and tanks, the old ones had badly perished with age. The bumpers etc had been removed along with all door locks and bright work. You will see in the pictures the front one is still to be fitted, we do have it and while aged like the rear with a slight deviation in it, it’s more than useable as is ( to make perfect you could have it straightened and so retain originality). The r/h door has corrosion along […]
Being launched in March 1996 and being first registered in November 1996, makes this beautiful “big cat” one of the first of the breed. Still with only 87k on the clock and a history to back it up, that lovely 4.0l V8 under its long bonnet (The XK being the first in Jaguars range to receive the new AJ8 motor) is as sweet today as the day it was built and if you are reading this you will know how good these engines are and don’t need me to say much more. The automatic gearbox with its “semi-automatic” mode functions smoothly and all the other mechanics operate correctly. Inside is what you expect from a Jag. Acres of leather and wood faced dash, with all the toys of the time, but not in your face, classy. These cars do not shout at you from the roof tops just get on with the job. Making them not only an excellent GT car but a classic Jaguar that you can live with on a daily basis. Overall condition is very very good but it is now 22 years old and there is some slight wear evident on the driver’s seat bolster. While […]
With now only 15 of this model left registered on our roads and only 3 of them with this 2309cc engine, according to the DVLA records, so it would be no surprise if you cannot remember the last time you saw one! Owned for the last 13 years by an elderly gent (a retired mechanic himself) at 85 years old he has decided time is catching up with him and his beloved Audi needs a new home. While in his possession he has of recent replaced or renewed many parts as and when required, including front discs and pads, bonnet and tail gate struts, front tyres, track rod ends, front suspension springs, rear wheel bearing and a full 3 piece clutch. The clutch was replaced and while the gearbox was out all the electrical sensor side of things that drive the speedometer were replaced to try and cure the ongoing problem of the speedo either not working or reading massively high. It did not work and as it stands at the moment it still does not. As a sub note though the owner says if you press the button on the dash it springs into life again? Up to the […]

With only 109K on the clock, a fully stamped up service history and a wad of invoices and old MOTs to back this up, it is hardly surprising that when this rare to find 3 door 16v Golf GTi arrived with us it needed precious little doing. But as we normally do, to bring it up to standard original wheels were fitted, after being refurbished, along with 4 new tires and a service including new ancillary belts (its history shows a new cam belt in 2011 at 80K) Now apart from sitting slightly lower it is all original, the way it should be if wanted as a collectable retro car. Body work is very good all round with the red paintwork having a deep shine and only one or two areas that could be improved if you wanted to. Interior is excellent with little or no wear evident. Mechanically it is more of the same with the 16 valve engine loving to be revved and handling that allows for “spirited” driving. Gearbox is nice and tight and the brakes are smooth and progressive. They really did bolt these cars together well so much so that they good examples like this […]
Having just been repatriated by its owner, this nice old Landi has a galvanised chassis, the “2 and a Quarter” diesel motor and overdrive on the gearbox. Body work is very solid, just some minor corrosion in the base panels of the front door sliding windows. Paintwork is presentable but has been “refreshed” by its owner over the years. It was his go to vehicle, when he needed to get somewhere on his small holding, cosmetics were not at the front of his mind unlike the mechanics. This shows when you drive it. Jump in, when cold turn the key to the heater position, wait a few seconds and start. The engine fires instantly and is quiet (for an old diesel) no nasty smoke or noises. Gearbox is very good with that Landrover snick as it selects gears smoothly and benefits fron having the optional and sought after overdrive. Brakes etc are all fully functioning and tyres are like new all round. Interior is good ( roof lining could do with replacment) and all the dash electrics etc work. If you are looking for a Trailer Queen then this is not for you. If you want a sensibly priced, very […]
First registered 12.01.1956 and looking to of been supplied by Jack Barclays, 498 FS has only had 3 owners in its life. The first until 1980 when sold to its second owner for the princely sum of £4875 according to the receipt with the paper work, then in 2014 to its current owner a gentleman collector that did use it on the odd occasion in his business as an undertaker, as a funeral entourage car. Soon after purchasing the car in 2014 the brake and cooling systems were refreshed with over a thousand pounds spent on parts alone. 5 new radial tyres were also fitted at this point. Unfortunately apart from old MOTs dating from 1979 and the original owners book, there is not a lot else in the way of history with the car. While not perfect the body work is nice, yes there are areas that could be improved, but still very presentable with nice bright chrome work throughout. Interior wise, the leather looks to be original and as such is now showing its age in places although I think today that is called “Patina”. Under that long bonnet it is very nice indeed. The current owner was […]
When launched in April 1964, who would of guessed that Ford had just created what went on the be the most Famous of all American cars, the Mustang. Those early series cars although all ID plated as a 1965 model, became known as a “64 and a half”, soon becoming the most sought after and collectable of the breed. Coming to us from a collection we have been given the opportunity to offer on behalf of their owner, this superb example ticks all the boxes. Built July 20th 1964 it is a very early car and a true “64 and a half” better still it is one of the first to have the 289 cubic inch V8 and very rare, it’s a 4 speed manual. Now apart from a colour change from its original “Vintage Burgundy Metallic” to the red you see here and an alternator replacing the early cars dynamo, it has managed to retain most of its other original features 54 years later! First registered here in the UK in June 2014 then sold to its current owner in October the same year, it has been part of his collection since. Obviously to be in this condition it […]
Now in stock is this Volkswagen Golf 3 door GTi 16v , the rarest of the Mk3 Golfs and set to be as collectable as its other 16v engine siblings, the Mk1 and 2 Gti’s. This car came to us having been dry stored for 10 years. What struck us apart from its scarcity, was the fact that it had survived so well as an original unmolested car! Apart from having aftermarket wheels, which we have managed to source the correct originals to replace them with, the only other item was a non-standard stereo fitted which had been removed at some point. With the car was its original owner’s wallet, complete with all its handbooks, warranty card and a fully main dealer stamped service book up to 2003 at 75K miles. Then old Mots up to 97K in 2008 when after another 3k it went into storage, backing up its still very low recorded mileage of only 100K today. Now with a new mot in place. We had the car fully recommissioned prior to its new mot being carried out, this included a full service, brake callipers striped, cleaned and refitted using new brake fluid throughout, the breather pipes had […]
We are pleased to of been commissioned to sell on behalf of its owner this superb looking 1968 Ford Galaxie Convertible. Powered by a 302 Cubic inch V8 motor and automatic transmission. This car has spent the last 13 plus years barely being used but kept MOTd throughout that time bar the odd year here and there and only recording 3700 miles from 2005 to November 2017 when last MOTd. Prior to which having received some light recommissioning in the way of new rear tires as the old ones were showing their age and the brakes being bled, it is now time for a new home. As you can see, the body work, all 18 feet of it, is very straight and basically rust free. The light metallic blue exterior paint is in very good all round order with only the one or two areas where there is some light reaction, but you have to look for the faults. Whoever painted it can be proud that the finished product still presents so well today. Even the hidden headlights still work. Interior is excellent, too good to of not been restored at some point, all the electric windows work and the […]
