Repatriated from sunny climes in Europe and back on its original UK registration, this lovely condition and rare spec Merc G Wagon has been in storage with us since coming back to the UK in 2016 and is now offered for sale on behalf of its owner. Originally registered and used as a demonstrator by Mercedes Benz in Milton Keynes, it came factory fitted with many special order extras including power steering, central locking, sliding side windows, factory alloy wheels with extended wheel arches, rear wash wipe, head light washers and a split rear bumper with foot stand. Most noticeable though are the special order cloth trimmed Recaro front seats complemented by headrests to all round and the optional extra seats in the back. Mercedes sold the car to its first private owner until being sold in 1998 by them. An Italian gent then purchased it, retiring soon after and taking the car home with him to Naples circa year 2000. Between then and 2016 he passed away and the car was left standing in a garage until purchased from his family, when it was driven home from Italy by its current owner. Its excellent 2.8 straight six engine with […]
For sale on behalf of its owner but should be with us soon, is this very nice “facelift” spec 2005 CLK Merc 240 in the high “Avantgarde” specification and with what is rare to find,a very low mileage of only 65K!! The 2.6 litre V6 motor under the bonnet of this elegant, pillarless, 4 seater gives smooth power delivery whenever you want it, allowing for comfortable long distant runs or the point and squirt of the city especially when backed up by an equally smooth automatic transmission, complete with sports and eco modes. Bodywork on this example is almost perfect with no rust, any marks etc it may or may not have picked up, have been rectified along the way and now this car looks like a car half its age. Inside you are cosseted by black leather seating and all the toys, including things like climate control, electric heated front seats, cruise control, folding mirrors, cd player etc etc and even “Park assist”. All of which work and the general condition is described as “truly immaculate throughout!” Coming with loads of history and a current MOT until August next year, it not only looks superb but drives just as […]
Just arrived in the UK from State of Texas, is this very very nice “55 Bel Air” and we are proud to of been asked to market it on behalf of its UK owner. Available in 3 different trim levels, the Bel air was the most expensive with extra chrome trims and name scripts outside plus two tone paint. Inside you got chrome strips holding the roof lining in place, more chrome and a list of options not available before. The new for 55 body shape was offered in 2 and 4 door hard top and 2 door convertible, plus later that year the Nomad estate and even a van version (only available in the lowest spec 150 version) was introduced. Chevrolet kept the Bel Air name to just the top of the range cars. This actual car is what is called a “Sport Coupe” as unlike the standard Coupe in the range, it is pillar less. By having no post between the front and rear side windows, this allowed for a slightly shorter roof and longer rear end, further enhancing its look and making it the most desirable, hence hardest to find, today. Having been restored by its owner […]
Just arrived with us is this very pretty year 2000 (just, first registered 04.01.2000) Porsche Boxster 2.7. Having sat almost unused in a private collection, alongside cars such as a 356 Porsche and R107 Mercedes. It was originally purchased to use as an alternative when the weather was poor. This never really happened and it has covered less than 600 miles in the last four years! Last MOTd in 2016 (108043 miles) it will be receiving a new MOT and a full Valet prior to sale. The original plastic window has minor splits so this will also be rectified in the asking price. The grey leather interior is in very good condition through out and has the expensive upgraded and electrically adjusted sports seats option. The original Porsche stereo head unit is still fitted and working. Mechanically it drives well, with no untoward noises. Suspension feels taught as does the steering. While electrically everything works, this includes the roof that operates smoothly with no glitches. Body work is excellent and will polish nicely, wheels and tyres are all good with plenty of life left in the tyres. With the car is an almost complete service history. 10 Porsche Main Dealer […]
Look I could sit here waxing lyrically about how this stunning 1972 BMW 2002 has not been subject to restoration, more a labour of love by its owner. The result of one man’s obsession to have the best RHD 2002 in the UK. But a shorter version follows to give an idea of the level of work that has been carried out. Anyone looking at the pictures will also see this and further questions are welcome about specific items of interest. While in bare metal, special attention was paid to items like door gaps and panel fitment and the retaining of original parts where ever possible. After receiving its last of many top coats of paint all exterior bright work plus lenses, headlights and badges were either restored or replaced with new. Inside new carpets were fitted along with a new headlining, both supplied by BMW. Seats have been re trimmed to original spec with the centres in Alcantara. One area he is not happy with is the door cards, while the vinyl sections are perfect unfortunately the chrome parts do have some ageing to their finish. The owner has tried to find better but to no avail, hardly surprising […]
So rare to find with such low mileage, this totally original (apart from the stereo) 1994 Chrysler Le Baron LX has covered an average of a mere 1850 miles per year, since being registered new here in the UK, August 1994. With only 3 former keepers, one of which would have been the original dealer that would have registered on arrival in the UK, this car has survived exceedingly well. Body work, yes might have a slight bit of fade to the paint on the tops of the mirrors and the odd cat scratch but is rust free and is very presentable with all the nice shiny bits in place and in good order. The roof which is electrically operated and fully functional, again is original with only some minor wear on the edges and the interior red roof lining is excellent. Inside is well, red! Super soft cloth seating, fully loaded with all the electrical options functioning, even the air con and in very good order throughout. Mechanically the Mitsubishi derived 3.0 litre V6 up front runs smoothly and gives a surprisingly quick ride when asked to, or more than happy just to stick the cruise control (untested) on […]
We are proud to of been asked to market on behalf of its owner this superb 1959 Porsche 356T5 B. If you are reading this I am sure you need no introduction, nor history lesson, on what has to be one of the most iconic and sought after cars ever produced, so let’s just talk about the actual car. Produced and completed on the first of October 1959 and registered on the twenty-fifth of the following month by Porsche Car Pacific Inc. of California where it is believed to of stayed until being imported to the UK during the 70’s . It was then allowed to languish until around ten years ago when the job of restoring it back to its former glory fell to a well know specialist Restoration Company. This was not just going to be a “Customer led restoration” but was commissioned to be used, once finished, as a rolling showcase for the company which is what it did, completing trips to places like Classic Le Mans, Reims etc. During this restoration process the body underwent a bare metal strip down that revealed a very good shell. Only the front clip and trunk floor required replacement, prior […]
With better pictures to follow, this 1999 2.5 Diesel Movano has been cleverly converted to sleep two people. Motd until the end of the year so ready to go fishing, camping or festivals.
Full details to follow of this Classic Ford Camper van complete with a freshly fitted interior and in very good all round condition.
Offered on behalf of its owner and currently still residing with him in Bridgend S.Wales for viewing by interested parties, this lovely coloured 1996 BMW 850ci has been pampered throughout its life and well loved by its owners, borne out by its service history and records. Described by its owner as “As completely stock, a beauty to drive. A car that receives nice comments and respectful head-nods wherever it goes. A proper GT cruiser in the true sense of the word, the legendary V8 under the bonnet has power to overtake without hesitation, while the 5 speed automatic gearbox ensures smooth progress whether powering down an autobahn or coping with the worse that our roads can throw at it. All the while in absolute comfort with surprisingly modern features like memory seats and a multi CD changer – everything feels nicely buttoned down and solid to touch. German engineering at its best. Condition is given as excellent inside and out, with only some signs minor of usage in the interior. Seat bolsters are still firm, leather still soft and intact, all in all very impressive. Outside the rare “Oxford Green” coachwork appears almost black at nightime but with its deep […]
Dacia 1300’s are a rare enough site here in the Uk, let alone an early series one like this 1978 version, that has just arrived with us! Not just that, but presented in the rarest colour and is a one owner from new car. In fact it looks to of only ever lived at two addresses, both of them in the same town, 20 years at one address and 20 at the next! It is down to this owner that the car has survived remarkably well, his liking to cover everything in rust inhibitor is what has stopped the corrosion these cars are famous for. It has been professionally valeted but there are still traces here and there of the “black stuff” Bodywork as we said is rust free, paintwork? Well it has obviously had a repaint, in the original colour, but it is not up to our standards and was probably done in his friends shed. Colour is pretty good match but it has been laid on very thick which has caused orange peel and “curtaining” in places. These could be addressed with some careful flatting down and polishing but personally I think it looks fine from 3 feet […]
So unusual to find with low mileage and in this general condition. With only 83K on the clock and a service history to back it up, this superb and rare to find with air conditioning MK3 Golf GTi spent 11 years tucked up in a garage while its owner not only addressed some MOT requirements but also during that time, chased down an annoying mis fire by basically renewing the ignition on the car, leads, sensors, ht cap, coil pack etc which in the end turned out to be the cam sensor. He also fitted adjustable coil over suspension all round and a Scorpion stain less steel exhaust system. Eventually back on the road and MOtd 11. 2017 and still hardly used. The body work and interior are both in excellent condition, the 16 inch alloys have been refinished and the front tyres replaced. With very little work this car would grace any show stand, a rare find that will only go up in value. Coming complete with its owners books in their original wallet, loads of bills and receipts and the aforementioned service history.
Imported from the States in 2015 by a UK Harley specialist with 76000 “American freeway” miles on the clock and purchased by its current owner. This very nice condition is offered for sale by us on his behalf. Prior to sale the same dealer removed the trouble some fuel injection and replaced it with a carburetor along with Vance and Hines pipes. NOW it not only runs spot on,it sounds like only a Harley can! Cosmetically it is in great order with all the chrome being complemented by white wall tyres. Paint has a lovely deep shine, in fact the only thing that lets it down is a mechanic while test riding it after a service, forgot to clip the l/h panier lid on snd it fell of at low speed damaging the leather. Mechanically all is excellent and the owner says ” He would ride it to Scotland and not think twice about it! So yes it is up on the miles but you would not believe it looking at it. A 1450c Road King for the price of a good Sportster! NOTE: The personal plate has been removed so mow back on its original age related 53 plate.
