Porsche 356 T5-B 1959 We are proud to of been asked to market on behalf of its owner this superb 1959 Porsche 356T5 B. If you are reading this I am sure you need no introduction, nor history lesson, on what has to be one of the most iconic and sought after cars ever produced, so let’s just talk about the actual car. Produced and completed on the first of October 1959 and registered on the twenty-fifth of the following month by Porsche Car Pacific Inc. of California where it is believed to of stayed until being imported to the UK during the 70’s . It was then allowed to languish until around ten years ago when the job of restoring it back to its former glory fell to a well know specialist Restoration Company. This was not just going to be a “Customer led restoration” but was commissioned to be used, once finished, as a rolling showcase for the company which is what it did, completing trips to places like Classic Le Mans, Reims etc. During this restoration process the body underwent a bare metal strip down that revealed a very good shell. Only the front clip and trunk floor required replacement, prior […] £89,995

    BMW 2002 1972 WOW!! Look I could sit here waxing lyrically about how this stunning 1972 BMW 2002 has not been subject to restoration, more a labour of love by its owner. The result of one man’s obsession to have the best RHD 2002 in the UK. But a shorter version follows to give an idea of the level of work that has been carried out. Anyone looking at the pictures will also see this and further questions are welcome about specific items of interest. While in bare metal, special attention was paid to items like door gaps and panel fitment and the retaining of original parts where ever possible. After receiving its last of many top coats of paint all exterior bright work plus lenses, headlights and badges were either restored or replaced with new. Inside new carpets were fitted along with a new headlining, both supplied by BMW.  Seats have been re trimmed to original spec with the centres in Alcantara. One area he is not happy with is the door cards, while the vinyl sections are perfect unfortunately the chrome parts do have some ageing to their finish. The owner has tried to find better but to no avail, hardly surprising […] £49,995

      Bentley S1 1956 First registered 12.01.1956 and looking to of been supplied by Jack Barclays, 498 FS has only had 3 owners in its life. The first until 1980 when sold to its second owner for the princely sum of £4875 according to the receipt with the paper work, then in 2014 to its current owner a gentleman collector that did use it on the odd occasion in his business as an undertaker, as a funeral entourage car. Soon after purchasing the car in 2014 the brake and cooling systems were refreshed with over a thousand pounds spent on parts alone. 5 new radial tyres were also fitted at this point. Unfortunately apart from old MOTs dating from 1979 and the original owners book, there is not a lot else in the way of history with the car. While not perfect the body work is nice, yes there are areas that could be improved, but still very presentable with nice bright chrome work throughout. Interior wise, the leather looks to be original and as such is now showing its age in places although I think today that is called “Patina”. Under that long bonnet it is very nice indeed. The current owner was […] £37,995

        Lotus Elan S2 1964 This very rare and desirable 1964 “S2 Elan” has lived most of its life in sunnier climes and has recently under gone some major recommissioning by a previous owner. During this process he met the vendor that was selling a Manx Norton motorcycle, a deal was struck and the car became the vendors. He had been told that part of the work carried out was a rebuilt engine, but having had an S2 before he was not happy with the performance, so shipped it to the UK where a Lotus specialist stripped it revised the cylinder head, fitted a performance cam shaft and over hauled the cooling system “Now” the car is performing as it should. As you can see by the pictures, much work has taken place and many new parts fitted. Things like the headlamps actuators have been replaced by new ones, the inside trim has been upgraded by a specialist firm, the dynamo and control box are new and set to give 30amps, the rev counter and speedo were overhauled in UK as well. This is a running driving car that has a great engine, mechanics and chassis, needing just some minor recomissioning but as the vendor […] £32,995

          Chevrolet Bel Air 2 Door “Pillar-less” Sports Coupe V8 1955 Just arrived in the UK from State of Texas, is this very very nice “55 Bel Air” and we are proud to of been asked to market it on behalf of its UK owner. Available in 3 different trim levels, the Bel air was the most expensive with extra chrome trims and name scripts outside plus two tone paint. Inside you got chrome strips holding the roof lining in place, more chrome and a list of options not available before. The new for 55 body shape was offered in 2 and 4 door hard top and 2 door convertible, plus later that year the Nomad estate and even a van version (only available in the lowest spec 150 version) was introduced. Chevrolet kept the Bel Air name to just the top of the range cars. This actual car is what is called a “Sport Coupe” as unlike the standard Coupe in the range, it is pillar less. By having no post between the front and rear side windows, this allowed for a slightly shorter roof and longer rear end, further enhancing its look and making it the most desirable, hence hardest to find, today. Having been restored by its owner […] £29,995

            Citroen Maserati SM Fuel Injected 1973 Before we start let me first point out that this very attractive SM does require some paintwork. This we hope is more than reflected in the asking price with top condition cars now fetching £40k plus! Never having been available in factory black, this particular car has been colour changed at some point in its life, prior to being sourced for its UK owner from Italy. While being rust free and very straight, the paint has suffered in places from the sun and from “storage” in its Italian and British owners garages. During this time it has picked up some scratches, worse of which is to the driver’s door and various nicks, plus some sun damage resulting in minor crazing in places. So if concerned to make nice you would need to rectify this. Having said that, if you’re not worried and just want the car to use, or as an investment, the paint polishes nicely and you could just leave it as is? Its Interior has the desirable leather option which appears to be all original and needing not much more than a good feed as it has begun to go dry, but certainly in better condition than a […] £29,995

              Porsche 928S Very low miles Being Fully Restored 1983 This superb bit of German engineering was responsible for one of those rare moments in life when you discover something remarkable! There I was in a previous role as a classic car auction company owner and viewing an old MGC on a farm in Essex, when we drove down a country lane past what looked like an old church from a Hammer House of Horrors movie, that was obviously now in private hands judging by the assortment of old cars half covered by undergrowth out front and the big “Keep Out” signs. But after consulting with my colleague, who was more used to ignoring these things and knocking on doors, we drove in and pulled the doorbell chain. How surprised was I when a friend of mine from 20 odd years ago answered the door! That is how I know the entire history of this rare 1983 Porsche 928S. In April of that year a gent walked into a Porsche dealer ship, ordered a new 928S in Cliffton White and basically ticked all the option boxes, including not only things like a limited slip differential, sports suspension and an electric roof but also a special order only interior in red […] £25,000

                Ford Thunderbird RARE 007 model (ex Jonathan Ross) 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 […] £16,995
