Having sat un-used in its owners dry barn for the last few years, alongside some of the rest of his collection, he has realised that he will never get round to restoring it to his required level as his Mustangs and Astons take president, so the decision has been taken to put this very solid 1962 Ford Thunderbird up for sale. Visually its body work is good and as an “everyday” driver is more than acceptable, but there are some areas of concern, primarily the panel between the boot lid and rear window which is showing signs of corrosion, no holes but bubbles under the paint. There are also some bumps that can be seen under vinyl along the edge of the roof, but these are solid if you press them so not too sure what’s going on there? All the stainless mouldings are very good but the chrome has suffered a bit on the bumpers and rear light surrounds. Interior wise things are very good, everything looks to be original and in surprisingly good order, with all the electrics, windows seats etc working, even the original radio! Really it needs little more than a clean and would be a […]
First registered December 1983 this rare to see in silver Sierra XR4i has obviously had a lot of care and attention lavished on it over the years, to look this good. Its body work is excellent and judging by the break in MOTs between 2007 and 2013 you would have to assume it was then that the body work received the attention. Interior is also very good but looks to be original so there are some negatives, first of which would be the dash top which has multiple cracks and to take this car to the next level, you would want to change it. Past that the top edge of the driver’s seat had gone brown from being so near to the window and the sun has got at it, the original stereo has gone, the rear tail gate struts are weak and the lower edge of the driver’s side rear quarter light seal is tatty all easy things to rectify if you are indeed going for perfect. With the car is a file full of receipts, invoices for work done, its owner’s books including the XR4i supplement and old MOTs. The invoices show things like a gear box rebuild, […]
Now with our colleagues in Spain after a trouble free 80km trip from its owners house is this very solid and ” honest” 1970 Renault 12. No its not a mint concourse car, this is a car that has been in everyday use most of its life, in fact it still has a current Spanish certificate of road worthiness, an ITV.

This very original and rust free 1979 Fiat (Seat)131 Supermirafiori 1600 Twin Cam will be heading our way soon. Now getting rare to find like this and values of rust free examples are going up massively year on year. Not sure on price as we may just offer it UK registered, but otherwise as is with the odd bruise etc its picked up over its 40 years of existence, or go the whole hog, address any cosmetic issues and adjust the price accordingly.

Unusual to see in this very nice “ice blue” metallic colour, this lovely example of what has to be one of the best buys on the market today, 2005 Chrysler Crossfire Ltd Coupe has the low mileage of only 81K on the clock. Looking at the lack of wear to the interior, its past MOT history and receipts totalling thousands spent on its upkeep, even though we do not have its service pack (lost at some point by a previous owner) you would think that mileage to be correct. Born from the union between Daimler and Chrysler, what you have is a Mercedes R170 SLK chassis, engine, gearbox and running gear enveloped in a body built by Karmann and based on a full blown concept car from the 2000’s. So under that bonnet is a 3.2 V6 Mercedes engine producing 215 or so horses mated, in this case to the optional Mercedes 5 speed automatic gearbox giving a lovely blend of performance and drivability, making these cars a great every day car or a GT capable of covering long drives across continents and I should know I have one myself! With less than 1000 right hand drive “Ltd Coupe” Crossfires […]
This pretty 1996 BMW E36 318i has been with us for a while as we have used it for some every day transport when required. It came to us with only two owners, the first being Sachs Boge UK Ltd the suspension people that had it for the first 3 years then one lady owner after that. Unfortunately while all its other owners’ books are present, the service book is missing so there is no way to verify the mileage of just over 40K that is currently showing on the odometer. What we can say is that the MOT register shows that back in 2006, when the records start, it records 16014 as its mileage then and so between 2006 and 2019 the car has only covered 24k miles. That and the comment from the MOT tested when last tested and while under the car of “Blimey, where has this been? These are usually pretty grim under here at this age!” gives you an idea how solid it is underneath. He also noted that the brake pipes look to of been change recently, which ties in with its MOT in 2017 that it failed due to deteriorated brake hoses. Exterior […]
Having originally imported this stuning and very rare Nissan R34 Skyline for the wife. When a bit later she fancied a change, i took the car to the detailer we use for a pre sale treat. He fell in love with it and bought it there and then! Well as you can imagine as much as there is no better fed animal than a butchers dog, the same goes for a car belonging to a car detailer. Now apart from the cleaning side of things he also upgraded the brakes using 300ZX calipers and discs, refurbished its very rare split rim wheels, fitting new tyres and fully serviced it as well then put it into storage with me each winter. Now with his business flourishing he realises that with no time on his hands, it will not be getting used anytime soon so he may as well sell it. Powered by Nissans legendary 6 cylinder NEO6 RB25 DET engine which in this non turbo spec is still quoted at 200 horses, coupled to a silky smooth automatic gearbox with tip-tronic and steering wheel mounted button controlled shifting and still with less that 50k miles in total covered. What you have […]

Built as a personal project by one of the “Go too” people if you are in the Mini Club and want a car restored, built or race prepped. This superb 1972 1275GT was finished 2 years ago now and has sat in his collection since. Now with less than 400 miles on the clock and still as good as the day it was finished, it is offered for sale to make room for his next project. Starting with a solid shell that was striped and bare metaled by hand to avoid any unnecessary distortion that media etc blasting can cause, any signs of corrosion were removed and replaced with oe (at least) spec materials. The engine was fully rebuilt, standard apart from the fitting of high lift rockers that gave apx. a 10% increase in power ( Dyno’d at 66BHP). All other mechanical items were stripped and rebuilt/replaced. Again all stock apart from the suspension that is now on “Hi-Lo” and coil springs. For full details, you really need to speak to the man that built it so “serious” buyers please contact us and we can arrange this. Please no picture hunters or people that just wish to see what […]
With a production run of only 3 years, the 24 Valve version of Mercedes excellent 300CE, some say the last of the “proper Mercs” was always going to be rare. To find a January 1990 car in this sort of non-restored condition, is even more unusual! There is only one 1989 example showing on the DVLA records so this has to be the next to oldest one left. Coming to us on sale for the owner unfortunately there is no service history, but check the MOT history on line and you will see this is no store it away and forget about it car, it has been constantly MOTd since records began so has been on the road all that time, so must have been up kept. Now we are not claiming the car is mint, the body work while being almost rust free, does have the odd mark here and there and signs of some paint work from over the years plus the drivers door lock barrel and Mercedes Star are missing. Inside the black leather is in lovely order with just a small faded, not worn through, patch on the drivers seat bolster, otherwise just a good feed […]
Offered on behalf of its owner ( car is located on the outskirts of London for viewing) is this very rare 1966, so first year of what are known as the “Non letter” cars, Chrysler 300 440 “Big Block” coupe that has just undergone some major refurbishment prior to sale. Exterior wise the body has been repainted and new wheels and tires fitted, while inside there is a new headliner along with new carpet and door cards. This along with various other mechanical upgrades and repairs, lead the owner to describe it as being in “beautiful all round condition”. There are however a couple of niggles to iron out ( needs boot lock, driver’s side window motors) which has resulted in him now offering it to market at a reduced price (previously £15,995) as he no longer has the time to sort these last bits out. Fully UK registered as tax and MOT exempt, viewing is welcome but serious people only please.
How rare is this! Between 1965 and 1977 a Spanish version of the Dodge Dart was manufactured in the Barreiros, Villaverde factory in Madrid Spain. Under agreement with Chrysler the Dart was produced as a “Knock down kit” to get round the protectionist Spanish regulations in force at that time. Due to its size, large engine/poor economy (the 3.7 slant six being the largest ever fitted to a Spanish built car and the only 6 cylinder engine to of been Spanish built) and high price, only 17589 units were built across all six variants. The most popular being the diesel engine variants, which while being very underpowered were better on fuel economy. The rarest of the bunch was the “wagon” especially when equipped with the petrol engine, which is what we have here, in stock with our Spanish colleague! As you can see in the pictures it has been resprayed in its original colour, the original engine rebuilt and the interior has been retrimed, plus many new mechanical parts have been replaced during its restoration. Now described as “Working perfectly” and with a current Spanish ITV (MOT). Please Note: Priced in GBP using an Ex rate of 1.10 to the […]
Just arrived with us (awaiting a valet in the pictures) is this superb 2003 Chevrolet SS-R Truck, with just under 39000 miles on the clock. First shown as a concept in 2000 then with a very short production run spanning from 2003 to 2006, total produced of this now Cult status truck was under 25000, the majority of which never left the USA, making this a rare sight here in the UK. First launched with the 5.3 liter Vortec V8 engine, 6.0 LS2 in the last years, they were never exactly all show and no go, like so many other “Concept styled” cars of this era. Here was a fully convertible truck that actually sounded and went like it looked, but this was still not enough for some and very soon after launch you could opt for a dealer fitted “Radix SSR” Supercharger kit that produced a claimed 6psi of boost and upped the horse power a further 100 to the 400 hp mark, while also producing another 100+ lb/ft of grunt and yep, this truck has exactly that under the hood. The bright yellow body work is in excellent order apart from the top surface of the rear spoiler […]
