Renault 12 An excellent survivor 1970 UPDATE: Now arrived with us and having spent the best part of a hot summers day, mooching around the country roads round here, it has to be said that this great first year of production R12 drives excellently, put a smile on my face anyway. Yes as stated previously there are some cosmetic issues, some bubbling  and a small amount of grot below the paint here and there, but structurally very sound and do not forget this car has not been left standing but has done its job of providing transport for its Spasnish owners for the last 49 years!. Interior is very good with everything working, engine, gearbox, clutch, brakes etc etc all great. You really could just jump in and use as an every day car and “show” at the weekends. 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. What it is is a solid car […] £3,495

    Porsche Boxster 2.7 2000 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 […] £4,495

      Mercedes 420SEL W126 1986 Rare and striking in white, this very presentable 1986 W126 Mercedes is a nice example of the model range and benefits from having the sought after V8 engine. Having spent the best part of 8 years standing in private collections. The last owner purchased the car, recomissioned it and did any work required for an MOT. Then after little use put it back into storage with us. Now he has asked for it to be offered for sale. The body work has survived well, having had paint work to a high standard at some point. At the same time the lower sections of the car were colour matched into white, as were the bumper lowers and mirror backs. Now a few years on there are a couple of small areas where corrosion is evident under the paint, these will need to be attended to sooner, rather than later if you want to keep the car looking this nice. The bumper chromes are good as is all the bright work round the car. The interior is excellent and rare in the blue cloth you see it in and contrasts nicely against the white exterior. Being the rare long wheel base SEL […] £2,995

        Mercedes C180 Esprit Auto Low Mileage 1996 Purchased from an elderly gent that had taken over ownership from his sister in 2017 when she was deemed too old to drive any more, this very nice and unusual spec C180 has survived miraculously well and has a very low recorded mileage. Purchased by his sister in 2010 with only 77K on the clock, seven years later she had only covered a further 10K miles, since then only another 240 have been added leading us to believe the low recorded miles of only 86843 are likely to be correct. Unfortunately, although the gent has searched for it, he cannot find the owners wallet with the history in it, just the owner’s hand book that was in the car. The online MOT history register does show that in 2005 in had only 52733 at time of test and mileage moves appropriately each year from there. Point of interest in all that time it has only failed an MOT 3 times, each for very minor items. 2005 headlight, 2006 wiper blade and 2011 two front tyres, this also points to it being maintained properly. Current MOT is through to January 2019 Body work is very good, yes there are a couple […] £1,595

          Mercedes Benz CLK200 Avantgarde “Kompressor” 2002 To Clear Having been owned for the last 6 plus years by a good friend I can tell you that this very clean 2002 Mercedes CLK200 “Compressor” has been very well looked after by him. Left with us to sell for him now he has replaced it with a newer car, another CLK just a later model. Still low on the miles for a 16 year old car, it has recently received new rear suspension springs, new MAF sensor, new front brake pads, an oil and filter service plus a new MOT. Interior is nice with just an acceptable amount of wear to the seal bolsters but no nasty great holes in the leather. It is optioned with both the front seats electrically adjusted along with the usual electric everything else. Body work is bright and shiny and only now beginning to show signs of corrosion on one rear arch, due not in any small measure by its owner insisting on getting the underneath treated when he first bought it, not using it on salty roads and regularly washing out the dirt from under the inner arch lips. Rare to see in this colour and a lot of car for its money. […] £895

            Mercedes 190D Diesel 5 Speed Manual Full Service History 1991 Considering this superb 1991 Mercedes 190D has not been restored, its general condition is outstanding! First registered in November 1991 its one and only registered keeper change came in January 1994 and that gent owned it until with age increasing and being over 80, his bad leg just would not let him drive a manual car any more so an equally, in fact probably more painful decision was taken to sell his “Merc”. To say this car has been well maintained would be an understatement, every one of its 194 thousand miles are documented in its service book by Mercedes and when the book ran out of room, a separate section was added, even the renewal of brake fluid and coolant sections are fully stamped up, you just can’t buy this history! The diesel motor under the bonnet sounds like it is just been run in, starts easily and with no untoward rattles or smoke. Mechanically this car feels excellent throughout. Gearbox works smoothly, clutch engages correctly and being a 5 speed manual, makes the most of the engine with well-spaced ratios. Brakes etc are all excellent. We all know that the 190s build quality is second to none and […] £2,795

              Rare Mercedes 300CE-24 one of the oldest surviving 1990 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 is missing. ( Please Note that the Bonnet star that is missing in the pictures has been replaced with a genuine Merc star) Inside the black leather is in lovely order with […] £3,195

                Mercedes 200 Automatic “Re-Patriated” Running driving project 1985 “New MOT” NOW WITH A NEW MOT   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 […] £1,695
