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 […]
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 now with 4 new tyres and a fresh MOT through to july 2021
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 […]
This great “bruiser” Suzuki was rare in its day and even rarer today. By using the GSXR1100 motor all be it with smaller carbs and softer cams and equiped with shaft drive, Suzuki made the GSX “G” a great all round bike, one that could tour effortlessly but when needed cover great distances at speed. With just under 40K on the clock this good condition example would make a great every day classic or with a bit of work an unusual bike at a classic show. A whole lot of bike at not a lot of money in a world where a moped can be for sale at £10K!!
Not to be confused with its lesser sibling the 4.0 petrol or 2.7 Weesel, is this nice, fully loaded, 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee “Overland” with its full house 4.7 V8 petrol that gives out a quoted 263 horses but more importantly 325 lb/ft of torque versus the 195/230 quoted for the 4.0l version. This is a proper off roader while still giving 20+MPG when on the road. As usual it comes with all the toys, electric everything, seats, doors, windows, mirrors,dual zone climate control etc etc with both front seats being heated as well. All wrapped up in a full leather interior. Outside on the corners it has picked up the odd bruise otherwise very nice and it will have a fresh MOT at the asking price of £2695 NOTE: Due to the increase in web security on most servers, please after sending an enquiry either place our email firstname.lastname@example.org in your address book or check your spam box, as we are getting many reports of our replies not being received.

With less than 90K showing on the clock this BMW 535I has spent most of the last decade sat unused in a garage that, its originality, plus the low miles has contributed to marking it as a true “survivor”. By looking at its history we can see it was first PDI’d for sale December 1996 then collected January 1997 making this a very early V8 powered car. Running through the history it had other 3 keepers before settling with one family from 2008 till now. All the history which is made up with a printed out BMW service sheet then other invoices, HPI reports and just about all its MOTs, seems to point to the mileage being correct ,the lack of wear to the leather seat bolsters is another, but as always we can never guarantee mileages. Bodywork is very good with only the odd soft dent and as you can see in the pictures, presents well (Note: Pictures taken on day of arrival so pre valet, it will only look nicer). Interior is excellent with the up market OBC optioned dash and stereo system, lovely soft virtually unmarked leather seating, wood inlays, rear sun blind/privacy screen, air con so […]
Now with us is this rare to see 1991 Suzuki GSX750F. Comes with a lot of old MOTs backing up the recorded mileage of only 28K and a current MOT through to 21st October 2021, having only covered 3800 miles since records began in 2005 but MOTd yearly. Appearing to be all original apart from a larger touring style front screen and a set of Oxford heated grips. Body work is actually pretty good, just a couple of chips in the paint on the tank, the odd mark here and there and the belly pan is off colour to the rest of the bike. But considering these bikes were always the alternative to a full sports version, one that you could commute on but still have some fun, with Suzuki utilising the good old/air cooled 4 pot motor from the same family as their Bandit etc and normal suspension all to keep the price down, its survived very well. Now a “classic” Jap 4 cylinder bike that is still affordable and one you can use as a “daily” or restore to show, where its likely to be the only one there.
