Anyone fancy what is probably if not the best then definately one of the best 930 Turbo Porsches’ available today. This car has cost near to £650,000 to get to this level and now could be considered a “bargain” at half that, £325,000 This 1982 Porsche 930 is fully converted officially to Ruf BTR spec+. Conversion done by RUF in Singapore and further enhancements carried out to achieve FIA race track worthy performance as and when needed. Some of its spec!! Ruf 3.4L BTR engine, Ruf dials, Ruf 6 speed short bellhousing G50 base gearbox, 965 spec intercooler, original Porsche ABS system, FIA certified roll cage, ATL FIA 2018 certified 100 L Fuel cell. And now for some bedtime reading here’s a brief resume of the car by its current owner. Anyway, this is what has been done to the car so it is rather special as it was built to do competitive racing at An F1 race circuit but is now street legal and has a wonderful set up – very competent on roads. 1.Full RUF conversion package done officially by Ruf Singapore. A lot more work was done subsequently. There is a RUF letter of Authenticity. Essentially it’s […]
Just arrived here in the UK with a friend of ours is this stunning and very very rare Italian but Right Hand Drive 1960 Lancia Flaminia Coupe Pininfarina. Lovely history and provenance as follows: Car was purchased from its current owner in Milan. Being one of only 143 produced in original Right Hand Drive form, so exceptionally rare. It was originally ordered through the Lancia dealers SAICAR of Milan for its first owner, Snr Paolo Sanguineti of Torino who owned a major publishing house in Milan. In the early 2000s when Snr Sanguineti died, ownership passed to his wife & son. It was after this time that it went to Carlo Cappa of Milan a renowned Lancia specialist to be mechanically refreshed (as proven by the plaque fitted to the front grill) then onto its next owner. Still in its original exterior “Grigio Albany” colour, although that has been refreshed many years ago as proven by the pictures used when it was listed on the Registro Storico Lancia & at the ACI in 1990,showing the car is still in the same condition today! Inside is superb with its stunning conditioned, original “Pelle Marrone” leather interior that has aged beautifully. Roof […]
Now with us is this very pretty and rare to find in black, 1990 5.3 V12 XJS Convertible. This car has benefited from a bare metal respray on the outside and new carpets, restored wood and reconolised leather on the inside. It’s been a Labour of love by it’s owner and now right when it just needs the final minor things to finish, he has to sell it due to personal circumstances. It drives very well (gearbox recently serviced) with no nasty bangs or rattles. Engine is smooth, sounds great out of the exhausts, shows great oil pressure and no signs of any problems. Brakes etc all function as designed but the abs light has come on since a new battery was fitted. The electric windows, locks and convertible roof all operate correctly. Coming with the car is a file of paperwork that has reciepts etc showing the work carried out over the years and there is a current mot through to October. Minor bits I know that need to be sorted, there may be others, are things like the light switches for the interior lights don’t appear to work and their small wood surround was lost when all the […]
A rare sight on the roads today this Dutton B plus is correctly registered so no problems looming with the new registration laws that are coming our way. The spec of this car reads straight out of the manual of ” Best bits to use” and is as follows: Engine. 1700cc dry sumped 711 crossflow, big valve head, full roller rockers, twin 45 dellortos, A6 cam, Lumition, rev limiter, 120hp. Mk3 Cortina gearbox box with rally clutch. Triumph Herald front suspension and brakes. Period Koni coil overs on all corners, 5 linked rear axle, Ford Capri rear drums. Period Les Leston wood rim with quick release, period Cortina clocks. Period Dunlop Alloys with space saver spare under bonnet. 3 point harnesses. Split 2 piece full torneau cover trimmed to match. A body off full restoration was carried out in 1999 by its current and long term owner. A man who is more normally found carrying out high class restoration work on Minis, but built this for himself, after discovering it neglected in a barn somewhere and with only light use since completion (2000 miles). Originally built in 1976 using a 1965 Cortina as a donor,this excellent and probably one of […]
This lovely RD350 arrived with us a bit sorry for itself, having just been imported. Now after a lot of time and effort it has been “revived” and looks the business! First thing we discovered was it was a matching numbers 350 that someone had fitted a 250 top end to and registered it as such? Now with a new set of barrels and pistons (will need to be run in) and the appropriate jets fitted, it is back to being a 350 again, this was just the start of a long process. You can see in the pictures just how much work has been carried out so interested parties are asked to contact us rather than writing pages of details in this ad as my secretary has gone on strike .
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, covid hit and that’s where it has stayed. 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 […]
This now very nice 1978 GS750, came to us as an abandoned project having spent most of its life left leaning up against it’s owners house in Spain. As always we couldn’t leave it to just fade away and so set about rescuing it and after “a lot” of work i think we have suceeded . Far too many new bits and man hours went into it but hey, it’s another one saved and let’s face it there are no more! Just some of the work carried out is new tyres, tubes and rim tapes, front and rear ( correct size and tubed as meant to be). New brakes front and rear with new braided hoses throughout and a new front brake master cylinder. New chain and sprockets. Fresh paintwork, original undamaged just badly faded. Carbs stripped, sonic cleaned and fully rebuilt, new petrol tap. Oil, oil filter and spark plugs replaced. Wiring gone through and repaired where necessary. Clocks changed to MPH unit (we do have original kmh clock still) all good but tacho tends to whine when first started but shuts up so hopefully will get better with use. While looking very sad for itself one good thing […]
Stored for over a decade but luckily sprayed in some sort of protective substance that has done it’s job. Yes it has some minor corrosion but nothing that would not polish with a bit of effort. Has had a new battery and a carb kit, now starts and past a slight exhaust blow when cold, runs very well. All electrics work, breaks are good, tyres are old but look like hardly used, in fact it has survived remarkably well! Comes with a lot of nice extras, seat, back rest, tank etc. The two tone paintwork will polish nicely with just a few minor marks and slight bubbling on the leading edge of the front guard. Check out its on line MOT history and although there is no telling prior to when the tank mounted speedo was fitted, you will see its done very little mileage over the last decade, i think its two miles since last MOT in 2009 where prior to that it had been noted that the rear tyre was getting close, the tyre on it now looks like it has only done 2 miles! The side panel/battery cover is missing, there is one on order and a […]
