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 when wanted. 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 […]
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 […]
This very nice in bright red, Alfa Romeo “Spider” has had just the one owner since being first registered in December 1997. From then till now it has only covered a mere 37500 miles and comes with a full service history that also shows the cam belt being done at 33749 miles in 2014. It has a full set of owner’s books in their original wallet and 3 sets of keys. That is the good news, the not so good is that at the tail end of 2017 it had an insurance claim for some damage to the paintwork on the bonnet which the owner was paid out for as he decided not to repair? Strange I know but it is listed on HPI as “Category N. No structural damage and repairable” so the very lightest damage of claims they show under today’s new listings. Now with us, repaired and on sale for the agent that purchased it. You will have to fill out the new V5 application form (supplied) as we do not want to add another owner, but there is no charge for this. Mechanically the car is spot on and there is a current MOT through to […]
The “Ziebart” anti-rust treatment certificate, plus the history and old MOTs backing up the very low recorded mileage of only just over 25000 miles that come with this MK5 Cortina, go a long way to explain its superb condition. So rare to find a “Survivor” like this, so many of this model were just used, abused and then thrown away, that few survive today. Registered new in March 1981, the last year off full production before the introduction of the Sierra and the same year that the Cortina once more topped the sales charts. PKN215W was built as an “L” model but according to its owner, factory fitted with the “GL” spec interior and wheels you see here today. From that point and through its 4 former keepers it has led an unusually sheltered life. Check out the online MOT history and you will see it has recorded apx only 2000 miles since 2005 when records started. Last MOTd in 2015 a new MOT will be provided. The current owner has carried out some work on things like the suspension. He has renewed bushes etc where they were getting old and dry, using modern “poly” style replacements that will last […]
This very bright and good looking Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet SE has lived a cherished life with only 118K on the clock, a full stamped service history up to 77K then invoices old mots etc in its paperwork file including 100s of pounds worth of work carried out maintaining it. Its metallic gold paintwork makes it stand out from the crowd along with the generally excellent condition of its body work and hood. Being the “Se” spec it comes with four way electric windows, central locking and a powered convertible hood. Inside is more of the same, up-rated seating and trim along with a CD player in the boot. With the car is both of its keys and a complete owners wallet plus the aforementioned history file. Obviously with this sort of history, mechanically it is very good. Its 2.0liter 8V engine providing for a spirited drive while the 5 speed manual gearbox has a tight and precise change complemented by a light clutch action. There will be a new MOT and a full interior valet provided for the new owner.
First registered 24.12.2003 this very good condition X Type Jaguar comes with a very high options list on top of which it has Jaguars much vaunted 4 wheel drive system, hardly noticeable in everyday use but there when you need it. Body work is rust free, with only a minor mark here and there. Presented in the rare to find “Ultra-Violet Blue” complete with the leaping Jag on the bonnet. Interior is in black leather and wood trim and all in very good order apart from wear to the driver’s seat side bolster. Fully optioned this car has electric front seats, four way electric windows, central locking (remote on the aftermarket alarm including full closure/opening, boot release and headlights on), folding/adjustable mirrors and climate control that blows ice cold if required to name a few . Electrically everything works and there are no warning lights showing on the dash. Mechanically there are no problems, probably helped by the relatively low recorded mileage of 107K and a full history up to 98K (the last stamp is missing but details of the company that carried out the last service given). Currently the MOT is until the end of February next year. On […]
A rare sight on the roads today this Dutton B plus is correctly registered so no problems looming with the new registration laws that are coming our way. The spec of this car reads straight out of the manual of ” Best bits to use” and is as follows: Engine. 1700cc dry sumped 711 crossflow, big valve head, full roller rockers, twin 45 dellortos, A6 cam, Lumition, rev limiter, 120hp. Mk3 Cortina gearbox box with rally clutch. Triumph Herald front suspension and brakes. Period Koni coil overs on all corners, 5 linked rear axle, Ford Capri rear drums. Period Les Leston wood rim with quick release, period Cortina clocks. Period Dunlop Alloys with space saver spare under bonnet. 3 point harnesses. Split 2 piece full torneau cover trimmed to match. A body off full restoration was carried out in 1999 by its current and long term owner. A man who is more normally found carrying out high class restoration work on Minis, but built this for himself, after discovering it neglected in a barn somewhere and with only light use since completion (2000 miles). Originally built in 1976 using a 1965 Cortina as a donor,this excellent and probably one of […]
Offered for sale on behalf of a client this 2 owner, late 2010 Volkswagen EOS Convertible, is excellent value at only £5795.

Taken in P/X by a client of our on his Ford Cortina, he has now asked us to offer for sale this lovely condition 1996 BMW 318 E36 with the desirable 5 speed manual option. He has had it professionally valeted and you can judge the results by the pictures, very nice throughout. Body is excellent, not 100% rust free but with only one or two signs of slight corrosion just beginning under the paint that you may or may not want to address. Interior is also very good throughout, one horizontal seam on the drivers back rest has given way but no heavy wear on the bolsters etc. Mechanically it is said to drive “Bang on” with no problems at all. Mileage on the clock is reading just under the 39K mark. Now this cannot be right but the car does not look to of travelled 138.000 either? Unfortunately it came from its last owner with things like 3 keys but no service history! The best we can say for sure is that on the DVLA MOT register it was first recorded in 2006 with 16,014 miles on the clock. Then subsequent years through to 2017 at 38.538, so […]
If you want cheap, best to stop reading now. This 1966 289 V8 Mustang with manual transmission has been subject to full restoration to the body, interior and mechanics and as such is rather nice!

Enough for you to just look at the pictures and if you’re seriously interested ask? Thanks. Located in Northern Spain, price is pounds in Spain(@ 1.12 ex rate). Easy access from Bilboa Airport or Ferry terminal if you wish to go and have a look.
