This very nice E36 Convertible has an unusual spec. Half leather interior, climate control etc, 5 speed manual gearbox but a manual roof? Having said that a much more reliable option than what can be troublesome, electric roof. Its bright red bodywork is in very good order having just had a refresh including a new front bumper capping (note the front driving lamps came with the new part and are not functional). Interior is very good with just minor ageing to the drivers seat. Mechanically there will be a new mot carried out prior to sale plus a general inspection and oil service as the car had been standing prior to coming to us. Becoming very sought after now, making this car an excellent investment and one you can use and enjoy at the same time.
Now with us is this 1993 Mitsubishi Shogun long wheel base seven seater with 181K on the clock. Before I start. This car is NOT roadworthy and is being offered as such. It has been stood un-used for nearly 5 years. What does speak volumes is that we put a used battery on it, turned the key and off it went! That’s Japanese engineering for you folks. The engine revs fine but stutters down low when coming off tick over, this definitely improved after being left to warm through for half an hour, this also proved that it did not over heat etc and the interior heating system works. The gear box selects gear and drive in both 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive settings. Indicators, hooter, lights, washers/wipers etc all work. Tyres are all good with a couple of them looking almost new. Wheels are in good condition. Inside the seating is in nice condition and very well equipped, needing no more than a clean. Body work is very good and appears rust free and with no major damage. All in all a good off road project or with a bit of effort could be back on the road. […]
Just in with us and straight from a large collection of Military and Military themed vehicles, is this 1993 Jeep Cherokee with the 4 litre Petrol engine and Automatic transmission. Fitted with an LPG system which is untested. Last on the road approximately 5 years ago it has stood in a dry storage area until we collected it. Obviously it will require an amount of recommissioning prior to an MOT and road use. What we can say was once here a new battery was fitted and it fired up instantly, no fuss nasty noises or smoke, displayed good oil pressure, clutch and breaks were free and it drove round our private area with no problems. (Sorry it looks a bit dirty in the pictures but its muddy here and “The voices made me do it!” Well it would have been rude not to. Interior is good with electric leather seats fitted in the front (originals available). The bonnet cable broke when we used it so will need replacing. Electric door locks ,windows etc all work but the driver’s door does stick sometimes after being locked, operate the switch on the passenger side and it works fine so a sticky mechanism […]
Here’s a bold statement “Probably the best 1979 BMW 733i on the market today” ! The last time this car was seen in public was in 1999, since then it has been locked away in its garage until unfortunately its only owner from new, yes ONE owner from new, passed away. With only 23000 miles on the clock this car is truly outstanding with things like its spare wheel, jack and BMW tool kit never having been used. In 1995 it won at the BMW Drivers club concours de elegance with paperwork to prove along with every piece of paperwork ever issued in its history file. Pictured having its MOT test during which the tester and his staff could not believe what they were looking at and which it passed with flying colours. No it is not cheap but real quality cars never are and how can you value something when there is nothing to compare with it on the market today.
A rare find indeed! This JDM Spec Mazda Mx6 had been stood for the last ten years prior to coming into stock with us. Imported when only 5 years old in 1998, it was last Mot’d in 2007 with 96379 miles on the clock and still only has 96305 recorded today. These Japanese spec cars have a 200 horse power variant of Mazda’s 2.5 liter V6 engine, 40 horses more than that found in the UK variant, then in the Ford Probe and nearly 40 more than in Fords “Performance” drivative Mondeo ST24. This particular car also has the rarely optioned 4 wheel steering and electric sun roof fitted alongside its air conditioning, central locking, cd player, electric mirrors etc etc etc. Body work wise there is little or no damage but as usual with red coloured cars, the top surfaces have been sun damaged and while still shiny have started to go milky, so to make perfect would need to be painted, the paint on the original alloys has started to peel in places. The very well equiped luxury interior is in superb condition through out and even the original stereo is in place and working. We changed the […]
We have decided to offer this nice 2 litre 5 speed manual 1994 Audi 80 on an “As is” basis until such time things go a bit quieter and we do it ourselves, then charge full price. Coming in a package with others and had been standing, having last been mot’d in 2012 with 121685 on the clock ( now 121738). The engine sounds very good with good oil pressure and no signs of getting hot the heater and fan work. Everything works electrically apart from the drivers window and the horn. Its a manual roof which when you release it the other 3 windows drop correctly but when you press the button to release the rear toneau cover it clicks but stays put, can be released manually. Body work is good but needs a good polish as the white paint has gone chalky. Interior is very good no more than a good clean past the worn gear lever gaitor and the original over mat on the drivers side. Roof is good and the rear window has obviously been replaced, not the best job but fills the hole. Tyres are shot from standing with low pressure and the wheels are […]
Rare in the US, even more rare in Europe is this Limited Edition “007 Model” 2004 Thunderbird. Ford commissioned 700 only “worldwide” in this special Coral colouring to replicate the car driven by Halle Berry in the James Bond film “Die another Day” (the coral color is apparently the same colour as the Bikini she wore in the film I know, don’t ask??). As the title says, this rare and desirable Thunderbird was supplied new from the importers to Jonathan Ross (Google “Jonathan Ross Thunderbird” to see all the pictures). When the current owner received the car it had been stood unused for a time, the cosmetics had suffered and it had an engine fault that has since been rectified along with a service that he carried out himself. The bright work on the outside of the car has been replaced so it’s now as new again and any small defects in the paintwork were professionally corrected. The interior needed little more than a good clean but the vendor had all the seats recolonised, he did however retain the tasteful Leopard print sun visors Mr Ross had fitted ! (See picture). What you now have is a mint, low mileage […]
Coming soon is this very original and now much more rare than its sibling the Golf, this 1990 Scirroco while needing some attention here and there to its body (some laquer peel and one bubble of rust about the size of a 50p on the bottom of the drivers door along with the normal dinks you will find on a non restored 27 year old car) is in over all very sound condition. Rare in this dark blue, running and driving well with at the moment just a short MOT, this will be renewed at the asking price. Offered complete with its “interesting” number plate and at a price that allows the new owner to improve as they go or just drive as is and enjoy.
Sometimes things that appear to be to good to be true actually are true! This superb car has nigh on 300 horse power under its bonnet in the guise of a 4.2 litre V8. Has all the luxury you would ever want and is wrapped in a body that has the classic lives evocative of its forebearers. All for the price of an average 3 year old hatch back!! Figure that? This 2002 Jaguar V8 S type is in great condition throughout with just some minor wear evident to the leather of the drivers seat, has a great history backing up its low mileage of 91000 miles and an MOT until July.
With values still on the way up it is unusual to find a Mercedes R129 SL at this price, let alone in this condition! Offered on behalf of its owner, this very nice December 1994 Mercedes 280SL really does stand out from the crowd. Its bright red body work, complete with removable hard top, is nice and straight with a deep shine and very few marks. The contrasting black soft top it has is in good condition and fully operational (picture to follow) and its alloy wheels are in great shape. With only just over 105K on the clock that nice 2.8 engine up front is barely run in and give an excellent blend of performance and economy with the weight saving over the big V8 motors translating into a more precise handling car. The biscuit interior is nice but as usual the driver’s seat bolster will require some attention and the leather would benefit from a good feed. Past that the wood trims, carpers etc are in good order. While mechanically the car is said to be ” Spot on” and the V5 and owners wallet are in hand, its service book has been lost. The on line MOT […]
Rare indeed is this late in the run August 1994 Volvo 480ES Auto. Volvo say 76000 cars across the 480 range were built during their 9 years of production, so with only 18 of this actual model left registered on UK roads they are an unusual site, one that is now sought after by collectors and Volvo lovers alike. Fitted with the later 2 litre engine this car has survived very well, not even the normal rusty arches affecting it. The bright red paint has a deep shine and no damage past a slight crease in the drivers wing which looks like the wind caught the door at some point. Inside is very good with even the Information Center working although the stereo has been removed. Mechanically the engine starts easily and the gear box selects smootly. Somebody has fitted a performance air filter and exhaust which does sound very “sporty” if you like that sort of thing. There is a partial service history, in the original owners wallet along with its others books and the MOT is through to January 2019. Sorry. Now sold and off to Ireland.
Now in with us from a Volvo Specialist that has been forced to close is this rather nice top of the range Volvo S80S 20 valve, in a nice all round condition. Fully loaded with all the functions these high spec cars have, the interior is a very nice place to spend some time. While all in good order there are a couple of wear marks , it has been used after all, but no damage as such. With an Mot through to 2019, an acceptable 156k on the clock (Volvo service history up to 94k then various bills etc since) it still drives very well. Famous for Volvo build quality and safety, these cars were fortunes new and this still shows through today. A whole lot of executive car for not a lot of money.
Go back to the 90s and you could not turn round without tripping over a Suzuki SJ! Now ask yourself “When was the last time you saw an SJ on the road let alone a hard top one? ” This true survivor will be with us soon, after its owner has carried out some minor paint rectifications and a new MOT. First registered in 1986 this rare coloured SJ410 has a recorded mileage of only 95,300, backed up by a massive history file and has only had two registered owners, the last since 2006. Original and in very good order throughout, the body work has survived exceptionally well considering most of these were consigned to the scrap yard due to the dreaded tin worm all eighties cars were famous for. Or beaten to death “off road” when people realised how good these sturdy 4x4s actually were. Just two small arrears on the front wings have recieved attention. Interior is standard and in good order and any mechanical maladies will be addressed for the MOT. Note : Better pictures to follow .
This very nice Stag has been in Ireland where it was mainly dry stored for the last few years. It has been subject to an older restoration and still looks good today. Fitted with the correct and desirable Triumph V8 engine. This starts easily, shows good oil pressure and has a recently fitted new alternator and battery. The automatic gearbox selects nicely but the starter only engages in neutral not in park. Underneath looks to be very good with excellent floor pans and what look to be recently fitted Spax adjustable shocks and a stainless exhaust system. The soft top roof has been replaced and there is a good condition factory hard top with the car. The soft top frame does however have a broken weld at the front r/h corner, that will need attention to be fully functional. Mileage is showing a very low 63,500 but unfortunately the transport company lost all its papers and history (replacement V5 has been applied for). However the MOT register does appear to back this up as far back as 2006 @ 58,500 but you make your own mind up. A new mot will be placed on the car prior to sale at […]
