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 . ( 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 just a small faded, not worn through, […]
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 that is mechanically strong and bears the marks of being nearly 50 years old on its body. 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 […]
Another lovely bit of kit winging its way to us is this “Barn-stormer” 4.2 liter V8 300 horse power all wheel drive Audi A8 Quattro. 150 plus MPH and an interior that in its day put BMW and Mercedes to shame. All in great shape, 132k on the clock, a current MOT through to July next year and only £3495! Better pictures and details to follow.

No its not a genuine “Karmann” Convertible but at 25% of the price who realy cares? If you are looking for some classic open top V-Dub fun then this nicely converted 1972 Bug might just fit the bill. Originally bought by a gent to be exported, he then found a problem in his country so9 it has been left with us to sell on his behalf. Mechanically sound with a very good engine and gearbox, recent replaced rear wheel brake cylinders and a new battery. Nice later seats in the front and a solid body that with a little effort could be easily improved (some bubling under the paint here and there but no rot and very solid underneath), nicer wheels etc. The soft top has a full frame and is to be honest a bit of a faff to put up (bit like a 150,000 pound Ferrari he he), but its there and once up does the job admirably, but thats not what this great little car is about. Get the roof down and enjoy. Having just got the car out for some extra pictures I made the novice mistake of putting the roof up on a cold day […]
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 […]
A superb condition example of a Will Cypha with very low mileage. Fully loaded as always with air conditioning, central locking, electric windows all round, electrically adjusted and folding mirrors, remote release for boot and fuel flap and digital dash. Speedo shows 51500 kms so 31000 miles and now fully converted to read in MPH from now. Based on a Toyota Yaris with the up-market VVTI engine coupled to an automatic gear box with overderive so giving excellent reliabitity and economy but lively performance. Road tax is £145 per year. So go on be different and dare to stand out from the crowd. Fully UK registered on an 03 plate and with a long MOT until October 2018
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 […]
Now with us is this very rare, first year of production, February 1966 Peugeot 204 “Turismo” (Saloon). Apart from there not being another 1966 204 registered for road use here in the UK (according to DVLA) what makes this car stand out from others is that only the very early saloons like this one, had a split rear bumper with the number plate set between the two-halves, a flat rear panel and small oval tail lights, so a rare find indeed. Originally sold new in Tenerife the same family owned it with the father passing it on to his son. The son moved in the 80s to Northern Spain where it stayed in use until 1990 when it was put in the garage you can see in the pictures, that is where it stayed until we bought it. Now a great restoration project, one that we have had running off a separate fuel system so know that the motor is good. Its body while not being totally corrosion free, is very solid with various bumps and dinks it has picked up over its years of use, all of which will repair easily with no new panels required. The interior has […]
