Jaguar Sovereign 4.0 V8 LWB Full History 1998 As the great man Jeremy Clarkson said ” You gotta love a Jaaag!” and when one like this one turns up you have to agree. This superb “X308” is not only powered by the sought after 4 litre version of Jags then new V8 but is the rare and then very expensive to buy, long wheel base Sovereign. As such not only do you get all the usual refinements but also more elaborate/expensive wood veneer in “highly figured” burr walnut with the window control/ashtray trim panels also done in wood veneer, opposed to the plastic found in lesser models, even the traditional leather interior uses a higher quality leather. Then you have the extra 4 inches of rear leg room and the roof line is raised towards the back for extra head clearance. Exterior wise a Sovereign can be distinguished by the complete use of highly polished steel and chrome work around windows and rear light clusters, as well as polished radiator grill and boot garnish. This particular car was a Jaguar dealer’s car for its first 7 months then only 2 private keepers since and still with only 80K on the clock. Coming with an excellent fully stamped service […] £2,995

    Harley Davidson Soft Tail Custom “Lowrider Chop” 1745cc 2002 Full details and better pictures to follow once the weather improves. But suffice to say that this superb looking Harley Chop is now being offered for sale on behalf of its owner. As you can see in the background the owner likes his “toys” and purchased this bike to go with his various hot rods and classic cars. Being the owner of a very busy garage, he soon realised that he just does not get the time to ride it so has decided it’s best to move it on rather than leaving it stood unused. Overall build quality is very high and that big old Harley V-Twin has just been rebuilt by a local company, so no worries there and it sounds superb, definitely not a bike for the wall flowers out there! Not with us here so please call to arrange a viewing if seriously interested, as I say he is a busy man, Thanks. £10,995

      Chrysler LeBaron “TURBO” 1987 This rare to find “Turbo charged” version of Chryslers popular LeBaron was imported into the UK back in 1981 and has survived very well since then picking up little to no rust or damage to its body work. I do have to say though, that while the blue panels may look ok in the pictures, they are not very well done nor is the dummy intake that has been stuck on the bonnet! Interior is full leather and in very good order throughout, needing little more than a clean and makes for a very comfortable place to be. The LCD dash these cars were fitted with, had their problems but again on this particular cars are mostly working. I say mostly as the “system check panel” tends to send out the odd rogue message and the multi-function clock/trip compute, while all lighting up, does not seem to respond to any of the buttons. But the main and important bit, the dash itself, all functions correctly. Past that the original stereo does not work but an aftermarket one has been fitted and the central locking works intermittently. Coming to us with a very recent MOT carried out by its previous owner, […] £1,695

          Landrover Discovery “Bob-Tail” Off Roader TDi 1994 Well here is something for you, people. The perfect big boys/girls toy and definately ” Something for the weekend” 😉 This 2.5 turbo diesel Landrover Discovery has had a ton of money thrown at it from its lifted uprated suspension and new mud plugger tires to its bob tailed rear end via a full perimeter roll cage, even the fuel tank and battery are repositioned inside so out of the way! It runs and drives well but there is no MOT as apparently the front tires are too exposed so would require at least a set of extenders to comply. This is one tuff looking Disco and you could not build it for the discount price its being offered for and no we are not going to clean it, whats the point your only going to stick it in the mud 😁😁 £3,295

Now I can hear you saying “1.3 Auto, hah!!” but strangely enough it actually gets on down the road quite well, not that its not crying out for a nice 1600GT or Pinto conversion to liven it up, preferably with a manual gearbox to suit, but not everyone wants or can have a manual and where would you find another automatic? Body wise, being in a dry climate all of its life has staved off the dreaded tin worm and now past the bits on the arches coming through (Please follow the link to our website for further close up pictures of these areas), after a year standing basically un-used in the UK and some age related dents etc, it is incredibly solid for a mid-seventies Ford, above and below. Rear bumper has suffered a soft “push” in the middle as has the front (have you seen the parking in Italy!) Its 1300 Kent engine is very sweet with absolutely […] £3,995

              Mercedes 200 Automatic “Re-Patriated” Running driving project 1985 UPDATE: Just to let you know, unfortunately the buyer with the deposit placed on the car has had to pull out of the purchase due to family commitments, let’s face it folks, it happens. So the car is now back up for sale. However the good news is that while this was happening the previous buyer wanted to see “how bad” it was underneath in case it needed major surgery? Well its blooming lovely! Needs no welding at all for the MOT. It drove very well to the test station until I had to brake hard for an errant school kid, unfortunately after that the l/h rear calliper was dragging and this was basically the only real failure on the MOT. It also requires 3 ball joint rubber gaiters , a dip beam bulb on one side, a set of wiper blades and that’s it once you sort out the calliper on the back, even the hand brake works, rare indeed on an auto! There were some advisories as well. Two of the tires are showing some perishing on sections of the side walls, probably from being left deflated in the container. Two break hoses are slightly deteriorated and right […] £1,695

                Chevrolet RV Fully Loaded low mileage 30′ long 1999 This very impressive 30 foot long “luxury house on wheels” was purchased by its current owner for the express purpose of using it to complete a Dolly Parton Tribute tour with his wife. Having previously suffered some dubious hotels while on previous tours, the decision was taken to find a nice RV to use instead. After much searching and not happy with what was on offer, all high miles mainly ex rental units, he found this one a one owner unit owned by a gent that unfortunately had become wheel chair bound so could no longer use it, hence its very low mileage. Upon finishing the last tour, the decision was to bring it back to the UK for an upcoming European tour , soon after arriving in the UK he separated from the wife so again the RV was left unused and now offered for sale. Obviously with this low miles the Chevrolet V8 petrol motor with auto transmission is barely run in and drives very well. Interior is very good with things like the micro wave and cooker looking almost unused and the rear bedroom has a 5 foot by 6 and a half foot king size bed. […] £19,995

Imported into the UK in 2010 it was originally in pale yellow, as you can see it has since then had a full professional colour change into Pontiac “Hugger Orange” which not only is a lovely paint job, still in excellent condition, but suits the car superbly. Imported from the dry state of Florida this car is solid throughout with no rust issues above or below. It has a numbers matching 350/350 power train all in excellent order and benefitting from a recent full service including trans. and diff oils, carried out by its current owner. At the same time he replaced the front shocks with adjustable gas units, had the rear springs recambered to give a 50mm drop giving it a more aggressive stance, fitted new front wheel bearings and brake pads along with new wheels and tyres. This really is a “turn-key” car, ready for this seasons shows or just cruising to your local meeting point. […] £27,995

That was my thoughts when the phone rang and a trade contact of ours said he had found one that had not only been stored in a dry garage for over a decade, but had only covered 40,000 kilometres ie 25000 miles and only had two owners from new! This last year of production R12C was purchased new in May 1980 by an Englishman living in Lisbon Portugal, he kept it until selling it to another Englishman in 2002 who loaded it up and drove it home to the UK. He then parked it in his garage intending to register it here, but that is where it stayed! Now after an oil and filter change and a new brake master cylinder it is back up running and driving. Condition wise the interior of the car is superb and apart from some staining on the roof lining needs no more than a light clean.

One of those “put it there and I will fix it sometime” kind of things. Never to be done just pushed further back behind the others that seemed to of met the same fate. Bear in mind the last time it was MOTd was in 2006 with 131K miles on the clock, now still with only 133K 13 years later, back then these great estates were not that desirable and so people just scraped them when they became bothersome and just not worth repairing. If only we knew eh! And thank heavens some people just parked them up as prices today are massively up and survivors like this that are new to the market are highly sought after.
