We hope you agree that the RAC s Woodcote Park estate makes for one of the most impressive auction environs in the UK The RAC is a private members club and with Woodcote Park being closed to the general public we agreed to limit consignment numbers. We trust you will find the forty-five Selected Classic Sports & GT Cars on offer which total some 3.7 million between them - as interesting as we do. Notable entries include one of the most important Subaru rally cars ever made at 175 000 to 200 000 a unique 1950 s Tojeiro Climax Coupe at 65 000 to 75 000 a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 that was in single family ownership from 19642005 estimate 700 000 to 800 000 and a very pretty 1961 Alfa Romeo Giullietta Sprint Speciale estimate 90 000 to 110 000. H&H is proud to bring to market the very car which set Subaru on the path to winning a third consecutive manufacturers title in 1997. Honed by none other than the legendary Colin McRae Chassis 001 played a vital role in Prodrive s typically thorough test and development programme ahead of the 1997 season (and indeed was the press launch car). This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the World Rally Car formula to which the World Rally Championship is still run. The Impreza WRC97 remains one the era s most charismatic machines and Yours sincerely Simon Hope and Dominic Lyncker Chassis 001 is bound to generate significant interest when it goes under the hammer. The auction also features three cars that made British automotive design among the most exciting and copied in the world a 1962 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Coupe 50 000 to 60 000 a 1956 Bentley S1 Continental Fastback bodied by H.J. Mulliner 360 000 to 400 000 and a 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage 180 000 to 220 000. The blue 1962 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Coupe has been barn stored since the late 1980 s and is now ready to find a new custodian for the first time in 41 years. The 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage has been in its present ownership for 30 years stored since around 1991. Then there is something really very special the conveyance of kings and princes a matching numbers Frua-styled Maserati Quattroporte I that was built to the special order of serial Ferrari and Maserati owners Dr Enrico Wax at 80 000 to 100 000. H&H Classics also holds a series of very successful sales at the Duxford Imperial War Museum in Cambridgeshire each year. And we have just held our very first sale at the National Motorcycle Museum. We look forward to seeing you at this wonderful new venue for another great sale. 3 Power in YOUR Hands says The RT Hon Sir Greg Knight MP 2017 Chair of the Parliamentary Historic Vehicles Group It cannot have escaped your notice that a General Election is underway. Generally speaking sitting MPs do not like elections they may lose whilst new candidates love them because they may win. Meanwhile the great British public generally becomes fed up with the whole process before the campaign is even half way through such is the saturation level of media coverage nowadays. But elections are the times to make the issues that matter to you actually count. How many of you have even thought about only supporting a candidate in the forthcoming elections who pledges their opposition to anti-car policies It is vitally important that both at Westminster and in council elections to ensure that politicians are returned who are not hostile to historic cars and their continued use on our roads. Some local councils are already contemplating the introduction of low emission zones and these could be used to ban classic cars from our towns and cities. In my view no historic vehicle should be barred from our city centres and any new so-called low emission zones should clearly exclude historic vehicles. There is no case for banning them because the pollution emitted is so low as to be almost immeasurable. A ban would not only deter classic cars being used at charity fund-raising events within city boundaries but could also deny many brides the opportunity of hiring a historic vehicle to enhance their special day. In my view it is important to see that new MPs are not returned who want to force historic cars off the road hike our fuel prices and introduce more anti-car regulation and red tape. So now is the time for those who care about our movement to use some political muscle. So if you do not want your hobby to be marginalised and old cars increasingly subject to restrictions -perhaps even one day consigned to static museum displays you should demand to know from the politician who asks for your vote where they stand on this and other motoring issues. If they are unable or unwilling to give you a clear answer perhaps they should be consigned to the scrap heap. 4 the wArren Golf & country club Are pleAsed to Announce sunday 24th september 2017 woodham walter essex england cM9 6rw for advance purchase tickets buy tIckets onlIne At www.wArrenclAssIc.co.uk see website for full details exhibitor information and entry details In AssocIAtIon wIth 5 E.M.

We cannot and do not inspect each lot in detail to verify the Seller s description - often we only see it shortly before the Sale. Therefore we cannot and do not take responsibility for the condition of the lot or the accuracy of its description. This is the reason for our very specific terms as to roadworthiness (Condition 19.1) and absence of warranties (Condition 12.1) which intending purchasers should read carefully. Commission Telephone Bids We will make reasonable efforts to execute commission and telephone bids when instructed provided they are received by 5pm the day before the Sale. Lot(s) will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and reserves. Where more than one commission bid is submitted at the same winning amount the commission bid submitted to the Auctioneer first will be the winning bid. We reserve the right to request a refundable deposit of approximately 10% of the intended bid amount.

In any event purchasers are reminded that clearance of Lot(s) may only be effected once we have received cleared funds in our account. For Purchaser s wishing to pay by bank transfer our bank account details are as follows Account Name IBAN Number Swift Code Account Number Branch Sort Code Bank H&H Classics Limited GB98NWBK01091771060480 NWBKGB2L 71060480 01-09-17 Nat West Warrington Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates When mention is made of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates in this catalogue it should be borne in mind that the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain does from time to time review cars already dated and in some instances where fresh evidence becomes available alter the date. Whilst the Club makes every effort to ensure accuracy the date shown on the Dating Plate or Dating Certificate cannot be guaranteed as correct and intending purchasers should make their own enquiries as to the date of the car. Export Licence Dates Export licences may be required for any lot manufactured or produced 50 years or more prior to the date of export from the U.K. It is the responsibility of the buyer to obtain the licence and correct documentation prior to the exportation of the lot.

All lots are held at the purchaser s risk at the fall of the hammer and must be removed not later than 1pm on the day following the sale. Please note if lot(s) are not removed by then the standard charges as stated in our Terms and Conditions will apply. Vehicle Identity and Competition History Any motor vehicle is sold as a collector s item and not as a means of transport. Buyers are specifically warned that any vehicle sold as such may well have had parts replaced and paint renewed or be made up of parts from other vehicles the condition of which may be difficult to establish. The Auctioneer has to rely on information as to the date condition and authenticity provided by the Seller and does not provide its own description and does not and cannot undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lot and it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that the Lot conforms to the description in the catalogue. The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN number under which a vehicle is offered but relies on the Seller s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing rallying or ex-works history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times both in a vehicle s works career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes works vehicles were fitted with different registration plates so that a vehicle could meet a particular event s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity. Racing Cars & Documentation Buyers are reminded that the presence of an old HVIF (FIA papers) or other documentation does not constitute a promise on behalf of the MSA or other issuing authority that they will be re-issued on demand. A car s application for a Historic Technical Passport will be subject to the prevailing regulation in Appendix K and can be reviewed much the same way Veteran Cars can be re-dated as new information comes to light. The Issuing Authority can refuse to issue new papers. Any prospective purchaser should check the position of the Lot prior to bidding. 9 AUTOMOBILIA 1 A Collection of Motor Racing Rallying Negatives Over 500 professional-quality images depicting the 1969 70 Scottish Rally various Autocross events (1968-70) 1960 s-70s classic saloons (editorial) Rallycross Rallypoint and production car trials of the late 1960s 1970 Circuit of Ireland Rally Touring car racing at Thruxton Crystal Palace Silverstone and Croft (1968-71) the Ford Australia factory at Geelong 1971 Welsh Rally 1970 7-Dales Rally BL Morris Works special tuning department and much more.

A copy of an early V5 document shows it being owned by a Mr Anning of Honiton Clyst Garage Exeter and a 1983 MOT certificate (carried out by Honiton Clyst Garage) states the odometer reading as just 34 989 miles. Possibly soon afterwards the car was stored at a friend s farm until 2001 when the farmer apparently applied for a V5C in his name and promptly sold the car to a Mr and Mrs Lawrence of Worksop Nottinghamshire. Mr Lawrence wrote a detailed account of his purchase and restoration of the car upon completion of the work in 2005 which was clearly done to a very high standard. New door skins and bottoms inner and outer sills and several new repair panels were fitted plus new seat cushions were fitted below the preserved original leather on the reclining front seats along with new carpets and a headlining. The interior woodwork was restored and a new wiring loom fitted along with a conversion to alternator charging. The paint was superbly applied by Jaguar restoration specialist Alan Proctor of Worksop. The car changed ownership in 2007 and by September 2012 it had been acquired by the vendor. Just prior to the owners purchase the gearbox was overhauled at a cost of over 5 000 and the vendor has significantly improved the car further by having the engine (the original unit) and carburettors overhauled by Peter Chambers Automotive in 2013 at a cost of nearly 19 000. With just 44 000 miles recorded on the odometer the vendor describes this beautiful MkII was being in excellent condition with regard to the body and paintwork interior and engine and transmission.

They succeeded the much vaunted Giulietta Sprint Coupe and were built on a shortened version of the Giulia Berlina floorpan. Power came from Alfa s ubiquitous four-cylinder all-alloy twin-cam engine which over the years was available in a range of capacities from 1290cc to 1962cc. The engine was mated to a slick five-speed gearbox. Suspension was by wishbones and coil springs at the front and coil-sprung live axle at the rear. Braking was by discs all round and steering by recirculating ball. The 1750 GTV of 1967 was a notable evolution. Most obvious was the increase in engine capacity to 1779cc which raised the power to 120bhp and torque to 137lbft. The chassis was uprated to cope and sported revised suspension geometry the addition of a rear anti-roll bar and more powerful disc brakes. The new car also gained two extra headlights a 30mm wheelbase extension and a host of minor improvements. This smart righthand drive example was restored in Australia around 2010 before being imported to the UK by the vendor in 2014. Set up with track use in mind when purchased he set about civilising it for road use which included replacement of the then-fitted 2 litre unit with a 1750 engine by Bianco Auto Developments which we are informed was reconditioned some 1200 miles ago -the invoice on file totalling some 3800.

The lovely righthand drive example now offered remained in its last family ownership for no less than 30 years prior to which it appears to have had just four keepers. It was the subject of a 38 000 three stage restoration that extended from 1998 to 2007 and is believed to have spent a period off the road prior to that. Under the circumstances the low indicated mileage of 44 000 is very credible though cannot be fully warranted.

This has included the replacement of the camshaft clutch flywheel and front brake calipers and discs and pads all round. Minor leaks have been cured courtesy of new gaskets and seals and the 915 manual gearbox has been improved by the addition of one of Tuthill s short-shift kits.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful designs of the 1970s 80s the Ferrari 308 GTB was launched in 1975. Although the 1973 introduced 2 2 Dino 308 GT4 had nominally taken over the mantle of its namesake the illustrious Dino 246 GT the 308 GTB was in many ways the true successor to this classic design. Styled by Pinninfarina (the Dino 308 was Bertone s one and only Ferrari design) the 308 GTB was built by Scaglietti on the chassis and suspension of the 246 with a brand new 2926cc dry-sump V8 engine and most notably featured distinctive sculptured air intakes on the body sides ahead of the mid-mounted engine. Initially the cars were built with some fibreglass body panels (another first for a Ferrari) but from May 1977 all-steel construction was used. Long awaited the open-topped GTS Spyder version arrived in March 1978 with a detachable centre roof section much in the manner of a targa rather than a full convertible. It did however only enhance the 308 s delectable lines and the model then evolved through a fuel-injected version into the 3.2 litre 328 GTB GTS until its replacement in 1988 by the less widely admired 348. By this time the 308 328 had become Ferrari s best-selling model to date these sales including an Italian-market only 208 GTB GTS 2-litre produced to circumvent Italian taxation laws. We are delighted to offer this desirable early production RHD carburettor example which has been the subject of a recent comprehensive restoration by renowned specialists GTB Restorations Ltd of Elmswell Suffolk. A photographic feature on their website records their progress and gives testimony to the care and attention lavished on the car. A detailed summary of works carried out by them is also contained in the accompanying history file together with a photographic record comprising numerous images on disk. Works carried out included thorough restoration of the bodywork followed by a high quality and expensive bare metal respray to a piano finish in the original shade of silver attention to the blue interior including recovering of the seats refurbishment of the wheels using the correct base coat 11 and an engine overhaul which included the fitment of solid race valves. The vendor who commissioned the works has striven to keep the car as original as possible even down to sourcing a correct Carello headlamp replacement and correct vinyl to rejuvenate the targa roof section. New tyres were fitted all round including the spare and the original Ferrari labelled windscreen was retained. The all-important cambelts were replaced at the same time as the other mechanical work and the car has only covered a minimal mileage since completion. The odometer currently registers some 55 400 miles only. Understood to have been owned new by musician Tony Banks of Genesis fame FBC 564T has been in the current ownership since 2011 and is now only being offered for sale to help fund the purchase of another Ferrari.

The original steering wheel professionally re-leathered will also be fitted. Whilst there would appear to be a plethora of tired LHD examples currently being offered on the market a cherished and restored righthand drive carburettor model 308 GTS is much harder to find and we believe this fine example properly looked after should provide years of trouble-free enjoyment for the next owner.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION Introduced at the 1965 Motor Show the Aston Martin DB6 was notable as the first model to be engineered following a factory move from Feltham to Newport Pagnell. Although it shared the same visage as the outgoing DB5 the newcomer enjoyed notably better high-speed stability and interior space thanks to the provision of a Kamm tail and four-inch longer wheelbase respectively. Grafted over a sheet steel platform chassis the four-seater s hand-finished aluminium panels helped contribute to a 1 466kg kerb weight. Praised by the contemporary press for its poise and handling the DB6 employed all-round coil-sprung suspension four-wheel disc brakes and rack-and-pinion steering. Powered by a reworked version of the fabulous Tadek Merak designed 3995cc DOHC straight-six engine featuring a trio of Weber carburettors the desirable Vantage variant was quoted as developing 325bhp and 288lbft of torque. Fitted with a five-speed ZF manual gearbox as standard it was reputedly capable of around 150mph and 0-60mph in 6.3 seconds. A contemporary road test by the legendary John Bolster achieved 6.1 seconds for the 0-60mph sprint and a maximum speed of 152mph. Some 1 750 DB6s were manufactured by the time the model was fully superseded by the DBS in February 1971 making it the most successful member of the DB4 DB5 DB6 lineage. A copy of the original guarantee in the history file issued on 10 March 1966 records that EBR 6D was supplied via Mill Garages Ltd of Sunderland and finished in Shell Grey with Dark Blue hide. Options recorded include 3.73 1 LSD heated rear screen 3 ear hubcaps additional carpeting and thinner rimmed steering wheel. At some point a rare headrest has also been added to the passenger seat. The original owner recorded on the RF60 logbook was a Mr Kenneth Priest a textile manufacturer living near Huddersfield. A letter on file from him dated 1977 records that he kept the car for five years covering 12 500 miles and that servicing was always carried out at Newport Pagnell during his tenure. A further letter on file from the 2nd owner a Dr Weightman who subsequently purchased it from Mill Garages records elicit runs on the M1 at over 130mph and how Mr Priest had the car chauffeur driven and never 12 allowed it out in the Winter. In 1976 it was purchased for 1895 by a Mr Barnet-Lamb of Orpington from Performance Cars Ltd who as evidenced by the invoice on file took his year old MGB in part exchange. During his ownership the engine was overhauled and an invoice dated 24 March 1977 is on file. Acquired by the vendor through Peter Bennett of Tarporley Cheshire in 1987 when displaying some 91 000 miles on its odometer it then covered less than 3 000 miles before being put into dry storage amongst other cars in his collection around 1991. Complete with original engine and retaining its original registration number EBR 6D has remained in storage ever since. A recent visual inspection suggests it to have survived extremely well with a nicely patinated interior. The engine though not started for many years is also said to turn freely. The bodywork certainly appears to be essentially solid and whilst there is no visible rust to the exterior there are some minor areas of corrosion beneath the paintwork and some starring is evident in places along the front wings. The mileage of 93 398 though not warranted is in keeping with the information contained in the history file and is therefore believed to be genuine. In addition to the correspondence from previous owners mentioned above the history file also contains an instruction book RF60 logbook old MoTs dating from 1976 to 1991 assorted invoices (including Aston Service Dorset and Four Ashes Garage Ltd) and copy guarantee sheet. A tool roll and Swansea V5 document also accompany the car. A Vantage specification DB6 coming from long term ownership in our opinion EBR 6D represents an extremely exciting opportunity for collectors.

Allied to five-speed transmission it proved both revhappy and flexible. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and 153mph the Carrera 3.2 was progressively developed over the course of its sixyear production run and is now feted by many for being the last of the torsion-bar suspended 911s.

Powered by an enlarged 2912cc version of BMC s C-Series straight-six engine that developed some 124bhp and 167lbft of torque it could be had in two-seater (BN7) or 2 2 seater (BT7) configurations. Progressively improved the 3000 metamorphosed through MKII and MKIIa guises before the arrival of the ultimate MKIII BJ8 in October 1963. Boasting a centre console proper convertible hood wood veneer dashboard redesigned exhaust system and wind-up windows the 2 2 seater BJ8 proved a comfortable and fast grand tourer. With engine output boosted to 148bhp and 165lbft of torque thanks to a new camshaft and better valve springs etc its reputed 124mph top speed was accessed via a four-speed manual gearbox. Last of the line the Phase Two variant benefited from redesigned rear suspension strengthened splined hubs and larger diameter front disc brakes. This example is believed to have been sold new in America and was imported into New Zealand at some point in its more recent life. A friend of the vendor restored the car for his own enjoyment and in doing so transferred the steering wheel from the left side of the car to the right. Our vendor observed the rejuvenation of the car by his experienced friend and upon the completion of the work he persuaded his friend to sell the car to him in February 2016. Our vendor is English but had resided in New Zealand for a few years and when he moved back to England he brought the Healey with him and gained UK road-registration with the DVLA in October 2016.

Most examples of Jaguar s comely cat have been restored by now and ONW 239B is no exception. The work was undertaken last year by Mark Waud of Yorkshire Classic Cars who the vendor describes as having a formidable reputation for superb workmanship . When it left the factory this particular Coupe was finished in Opalescent Golden Sand teamed with Red interior trim. Following a bare metal strip and refurbishment that included a new front subframe and door skins the car was repainted in a suitably distinguished shade of Dark Blue and completely retrimmed in contrasting Grey leather. The engine was totally refurbished the dynamo replaced by an alternator and the four-speed Moss gearbox superseded by a more modern five-speed one (the original is available by separate negotiation). The brakes have been upgraded with Coopercraft parts while other new items of running gear include dampers springs springs and tyres.

So now we get an inkling into the worlds of the five owners of K7 SHK a notably eye-catching 996 Turbo that s benefited from the TechArt treatment. The aerokit adds to the car s naturally purposeful look as do the large diameter black-painted wheels that are shod with a suitably sporting pattern of Continental tyres. Red-finished brake calipers add a lift to the exterior while Red seatbelts have a similar effect on the inside. The overall effect is of a car that s just dying to be driven and one that will impress wherever it goes. The mileage from new is a mere 39 914 a figure that s supported by the service stamps of Porsche dealers. The last bout of maintenance was carried out in March this year just 26 miles ago The car is now being offered complete with a collection of invoices original pack of handbooks and service record and an advisory-free MOT that s valid into March of next year.

Based on the Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG it included a performance kit for the supercharged engine that raised output to 530bhp and stump-pulling torque of 572 lbs ft the combined effect of which was an electronically-limited top speed of 186.4mph and a time for the 0-60mph dash of 4.4 seconds. The relatively subtle aero parts comprised a replacement front spoiler side skirts that feature automatic illumination of the ground whenever the door is opened and a rear diffuser. To further improve the handling the Brabus version of the car is lowered by 15mm. The interior options included stainless steel doorsills with illuminated Brabus logo ergonomically shaped sports steering wheel with airbag and heated rim and genuine carbon trim. The very smart-looking righthand drive sale car s additional upgrades are understood to include 20 inch diameter Brabus Monoblock six-spoke alloy wheels sports exhaust safety roll over bar and front and rear mats.

Developed especially for British roads by the company which helped Colin McRae Richard Burns and Petter Solberg become World Rally Champions the Prodrive One was intended to counter a wave of grey import STI Type R cars coming over from Japan. More relaxing and forgiving to pilot than a Type R thanks to taller gearing more compliant suspension and ABS brakes the 280PS 343Nm P1 was nonetheless capable of 0-60mph in 4.66 seconds and 155mph. First registered as AE51 HVY to Donalds Garage Ltd of Peterborough on 5th September 2001 Chassis 827 1000 served as their demonstrator for some three months before being acquired by its first private keeper Ray Brammer Esq. A motor engineer and rally driver who subsequently campaigned an Impreza WRC car Mr Brammer initially serviced the P1 himself before entrusting its maintenance to the Terrington Service Station of King s Lynn.

The moniker was finally first employed in 1971 on the Coupe and Convertible versions of the Silver Shadow. In common with the Shadow the newcomer was penned by in-house designer John Polwhele Blatchley and the underbody and floorpan crafted by Pressed Steel Fisher. Initial assembly (including alloy bonnet bootlid and doors) was then carried out by Mulliner Park Ward. At this stage the cars were transported to the main factory in Crewe for the installation of the running gear before returning to London for the trimming painting and finishing. Power was provided by the company s long-standing 6.75-litre V8 that was mated to a GM Turbo Hydramatic 400 three-speed automatic transmission. Suspension was independent by coil springs all round augmented by a Citroen-originated hydraulic self-levelling system. Braking was by discs with ventilated units phased in for 1972. The model received a mild update in 1977 when alloy and rubber bumpers replaced the earlier chromed items and new style wheel rims and reversing lights were fitted. Under the bonnet an aluminium radiator was adopted and an oil cooler added to the specification while changes to the passenger compartment concerned newly-designed seats and refashioned facia. This lefthand drive Corniche was purchased by the vendor in New York in November 2015. Since using the car in the US he has had the fuel injectors pipework two tyres the hood all replaced the dashboard repaired and URM 702X serviced.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION Famously launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show the Jaguar E-Type created a furore. Its combination of supercar performance superb styling and a low price tag left rivals reeling and customers clamouring. While early sportscar racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori amongst others helped cement its reputation. Built as a monocoque with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine the model s combination of all-round independent suspension (torsion-bar front coil-sprung rear) rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes gave it excellent roadholding and handling capabilities. Fed by triple SU HD8 carburettors and topped with a straight port DOHC cylinder head its indomitable 3781cc straightsix engine was quoted as developing some 265bhp and 260lbft of torque. Allied to a four-speed Moss gearbox (with synchromesh on 2nd 3rd and 4th) it reputedly enabled the low-slung two-seater to sprint from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and onto 150mph. While any E-type Fixed Head Coupe is desirable the lithesome free-revving 3.8 litre cars enjoy a particularly exalted status. Dating from early in the production cycle before Jaguar responded to popular demand for greater comfort and refinement they arguably represent the automotive icon in its purest form. One of just 1 799 Jaguar E-Type 3.8 Fixed Head Coupes made to right-hand drive specification this particular example chassis 860826 was completed on 23rd August 1962. Supplied new via Western Motors of Bristol to A.E. Powell Esq. the two-seater initially sported the latter s personalised number plate AEP 246 but was re-registered as 390 CFH prior to entering the current ownership during August 1976. A mere five years older than the Jaguar the vendor spent several months grafting on the then still expanding M5 motorway so that he could become the envy of his university friends A sports car enthusiast he treated the E-Type to a thorough engine overhaul (crankshaft reground new timing chains fresh 40thou oversize pistons chrome plated SU carburettors etc) as well as sundry running repairs many of which are documented in the accompanying history file. A notably tall gentleman the seller fitted alternative seats to give him greater control of the car at high speeds but thankfully retained the original Dark Blue leather buckets which are being reinstated for the auction. Taken off the road during the mid late 1980s due to increasing business demands the Fixed Head Coupe was driven into the first of the two North Devon barns that have sheltered it ever since whilst in possession of a valid MOT certificate. Last run some sixteen years ago the 3.8 litre straight-six is stamped R7145-9 to both its cylinder head and block which tallies with the engine number quoted on the car s Jaguar Heritage Trust Production Trace Certificate. The same document also shows that the E-Type was initially painted Opalescent Silver Blue traces of which are still visible when the boot floor is lifted and the spare wheel examined. Opening the fuel filler flap reveals plenty of solid metal and although by no means air tight the Fixed Head Coupe s current Linney Barn abode seems to have been surprisingly kind to it. A potentially rewarding restoration project this much-loved Jaguar displays an unwarranted but not inconceivable 63 000 miles to its odometer and is now ready to change hands again for the first time in forty-one years.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION The Italian Carrozzeria Bertone excelled when they styled the Giulietta Sprint Speciale (SS) for Alfa Romeo. Its beautifully swooping and curvaceous bodywork with lengthy front and rear overhangs was dramatic and exotic. Appearing to be equally at home on either the starting grid at Monza or the harbour at Portofino the plastic bug deflector at the top of the bonnet was somewhat out of place but succeeded in completing the racy appearance. In reality the long nose and tail blunted its on-track performance. Naturally an expensive offering just 1 366 examples left the factory before the Giulietta SS with its 1300 engine became the Giulia 1600 SS. Virtually identical in their metalwork both cars had a five-speed gearbox. This Giulietta example presents superbly its lowered suspension emphasising the arrow like shape. According to the Alfa Romeo Museum Archives it was manufactured on January 11th 1961 and painted in Alfa red (just as it is now) after which it was dispatched a few days later to Alfa Romeo s North American importer The Hoffman Motor Company of New York. We gather it remained in America until exported to Holland in November 2001. Believed to have been restored somewhere in Europe soon afterwards it was acquired in Italy in early 2013 by former classic Alfa Romeo specialist Black and White Garage and imported into England and UK registered. Purchased by the vendor from Black and White Garage a short time later he has thoroughly enjoyed the Sprint Speciale being part of his fabulous car collection but feels that now is the time for someone else to slip behind the steering wheel. Powered by an SS correct 120 series engine your Giulietta owning cataloguer was fortunate to drive this particular car a couple of years ago and remembers how superbly it drove. Extremely well cared for during the current ownership the car has been further enhanced with an overhaul of the steering idler and carburettors plus some paintwork improvements.

Built by marque expert John Pearson and previously employed to power the late John Coombs ex-Ecurie National Belge Jaguar D-Type the 3.8-litre engine which now nestles aboard WHP 17 is understood to have covered several hundred miles since Mr Pearson last refreshed it. Boasting a correct-type wide angle cylinder head six-branch big bore exhaust manifold dry-sump lubrication and triple Weber carburettors etc the potent straight-six is allied to Jaguar four-speed manual plus overdrive transmission (courtesy of an S-Type). As one might expect of an engineer who trained alongside John Pearson and has restored some of the world s most significant sports and competition cars Mr Greaves was more than up to the challenge of corralling the numerous extra horses (albeit the seller was adamant they should use period parts wherever possible). Jaguar MKII front and back axles allowed for the fitment of Coopercraft vented disc brakes up front a Powr-Lok limited slip differential at the rear and Koni shock absorbers allround. The steering box is also a MKII item but has been uprated with electronic (EZ) power assistance. Affixed to the car via specially commissioned hubs the 16-inch Halibrand peg-drive alloy wheels Coombs-style rear arches and twin fuel fillers are the only external signs of the MKI s considerably enhanced performance potential. Although the subtle Lister-referencing green and yellow banding around the radiator grille offers another clue that WHP 17 is no ordinary Jaguar. The interior with REG NO CHASSIS WHP 17 S911275 its original Red leather upholstery is similarly discrete.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION Introduced at the September 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show the Ferrari 328 shot straight to the top of the junior supercar league. Borrowed from the preceding 308 its tubular-steel chassis was equipped with doublewishbone independent suspension front rear anti-roll bars and potent disc brakes and the adoption of a 288 GTO-specification steering rack brought notably sharper responses. Transversely mid-mounted the newcomer s Tipo 105CB quad-cam 32-valve V8 displaced 3185cc. Credited with developing 270bhp and 224lbft of torque it was allied to five-speed manual transmission and gave suitably authoritative performance (0-60mph 5.5 seconds 158mph). Styled by Pininfarina the 328 retained the same iconic silhouette as its forebear but added a larger egg crate grille new bumpers and reworked bonnet and boot lids. Available in both GTB (berlinetta) and GTS (spider) guises the Ferrari also benefited from a revamped interior - again inspired by the 288 GTO - complete with improved switchgear redesigned centre console and more cosseting seats. Beloved by the press and public alike the 328 remained in production until 1989 by which time just 542 examples are thought to have been despatched to the UK. Delivered new on 1st August 1989 to a Roger Shrubb of Chorleywood via Lancasters of Colchester this beautiful example was initially serviced by Strattons of Wilmslow before passing to its second keeper Nicholas Goulandris of St John s Wood London on 22nd November 1990. By May 1995 with 16 608 miles recorded it was being cared for by DK Engineering who also carried out a modification to the fuel injection system. DK continued to look after the car up to around 1997 8 following which servicing was entrusted to Moto Technique Ltd. Between 2000 and 2005 servicing was being done by Motorvation of Sarratt Herts before the car left the UK for a spell in Greece where maintenance and servicing was completed by official dealer Genesis SA of Athens. From the notes in the accompanying history file it came back to the UK in 2010 returning to Motorvation for servicing before passing to its third owner Michael Docker of Loughton Essex. In January 2012 a service at 32 137 miles was carried out by Maranello of Egham following which Graypaul completed another at 32 336 miles in May 2013 which included a complete application of Tuff-Kote Dinol retreatment to the underside. In August 2014 further servicing was carried out by Maranello of Egham at 32 491 miles before the car was offered for sale via Foskers with 32 606 miles on its odometer.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION H&H are indebted to Malcolm Thorne and Classic & Sports Car magazine for the following narrative (a fuller version of which appears in the July 2017 issue) What a golden age the late 1950s were for fans of sporting machinery. Besides the mainstream models from MG Triumph Austin-Healey et al there were plenty of options for those seeking something rather more individual. From the bones of a ropey old Austin Seven or Ford Eight a (sometimes) delightful little roadster could be cobbled together for a few quid. For those with deeper pockets meanwhile a whole cottage industry of up and coming racing car constructors were happy to fabricate a somewhat more sophisticated product. It was an exciting time peppered with names that would enter into motoring folklore Lotus and Cooper Costin and Lola and plenty more. Back-street cars that could give the big boys a run for their money. It was in such a context that the little fixed-head that you see here first saw light of day. Commissioned by one Frank Rambridge of West Clandon near Guildford in Surrey the Tojeiro-Climax is the quintessential bespoke sports coupe. Skinned in a streamlined aluminium body by Wakefield & Sons of West Byfleet in Surrey (known at the time for its racing and sports-car bodies) below the surface lay a state-ofthe-motorsport-art chassis engineered and built by the grandly named Tojeiro Automotive Developments - which was in fact a two-man operation working from a small shed. Be that as it may this was a thoroughly advanced machine that in its ironmongery was leagues ahead of such mass-market products as the fixed-head MGA. Assembled and honed by Competition Motors of Weybridge the car was first registered 1 GPF in August 1958 after a two-year gestation period. Badged simply as a Tojeiro it was pressed into service as its owner s regular transport soon racking up some 20 000 miles. During Bambridge s time with the coupe his wife Mary had complained that the steering was excessively heavy when parking and so the front end was eventually dismantled and modified components were ordered from Tojeiro 31 Automotive Developments. Unfortunately the original parts were scrapped and the replacements proved to be of incorrect size and when other commitments took over the work stalled. The coupe remained immobile until May 1967 at which point an imminent house-move prompted Bambridge to part with it. Re-registered 6839 PE the non-runner was taken in part-exchange against a new Mini Cooper S by dealer Paul Vasey of Dorking. Vasey retained the car for 12 months the Tojeiro passing to a Jonathan Carr Selway of Luton in June 1968 but by October it was with one Robin David Elliot Legg of Lincolnshire. Six months later Geoff Henderson then a student at Newcastle University purchased the car which he described as being immaculate - for a princely 110. Henderson who was racing an MGA at the time competed with it in an MG Car Club event at Croft but in spite of being full of praise for the little coupe ( The engine was always smooth and willing to rev and the handling very good. I used 7500rpm in the lower gears and the car would reach an indicated 120mph at 7000rpm ) sold it to his brother Martyn a few months later. Unfortunately an illicit race from the pub to a local fish and chip shop in 1970 resulted in a damaged bonnet after coming to blows with an errant bovine. The car was repaired and painted white then used by Martyn for travelling between the north-east and Hounslow where he was working at the time.

It was complete but in need of considerable work after a long period of inactivity recalls Barguss who entrusted it to Beacon Hill Garage for a meticulous restoration including a respray in the original metallic racing green with black wheels. Standing small it s a remarkably petite device that is gawkily gorgeous in the way that so many British sporting designs of the late 50s and early 60s were. To today s observer the styling melds flourishes from a dozen different makes and models - AC Aceca and Greyhound (although it pre-dates the latter) Peerless and Gilbern GT to name a few. It may come as a surprise then that the brief was to produce something akin to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Whose hand was responsible for the shape is today something of a mystery landscape artist and regular Tojeiro cohort Cavendish Morton has been mooted as a possible suspect but conclusive evidence of that remains elusive. What is certain is that the coachwork belongs to the school of enchantingly naive styling that gave us the Daimler Dart and earliest TVRs vehicles that are best described as oddly beautiful. Beneath that hand-beaten alloy skin it s a satisfyingly sophisticated bit of kit. A steel spaceframe supports a coil-sprung front with unequal-length double wishbone suspension and rack-and-pinion steering while a de Dion rear axle keeps the tail in check. Power comes courtesy of motor racing s favourite fire pump the superb 1098cc overhead-cam Coventry Climax FWA inhaling through twin 1.5-inch SUs and bolted to a nicely mechanical four-speed box purloined from the boys at BMC. Braking is taken care of by a large-diameter Alfin drum at each corner while the car rides on reassuringly tall and narrow 15in centre-lock wires that are today shod with 155-section Vredestein radials. Climb inside and you re immediately struck by the spaciousness of your surroundings albeit the roomy 31 cabin is a strict two-seater. You could be forgiven for expecting a driving position akin to the close-coupled confines of an MGA or sidescreen TR the wheel close to your chest and a high scuttle sitting close behind that but nothing could be further from the truth - a corollary in no small part of the Tojeiro s relatively long wheelbase. The delicious wood-rimmed wheel - complete with a Mercedes Gullwing-style quick-release mechanism that allows it to be swung upwards for easier entry and exit lies an arm s reach away. An ignition lock sits atop the transmission tunnel with a workmanlike alloy starter button alongside. Twist the key and depress the knob to fire up Hassan and Mundy s lovely little four-pot and you re met with a raucously gruff mix of intake chuff and a guttural growl from the stainless side-exit exhaust. With its glossy wood fascia and neatly trimmed surfaces the spartan cockpit has the feel of a micro GT but just like an Elite the soundtrack is pure racer. The simple pull-cord door handles figure-hugging bucket seats and sliding Perspex side windows further reinforce that impression. The gearlever sits a couple of inches further back than you might expect but has a nice mechanical feel as you slot it through the narrow gate. The pedals - floor-hinged clutch and brake plus a pendant accelerator - are nicely weighted and ideally positioned for heel-and-toeing and there is a small recess upon which to rest your left foot when you re not stirring the cogs. The steering is a tactile delight devoid of slop and play and simply points the car where you want it to go in a reassuringly modern manner. Nor does the tiller feel especially weighty compared to models of a similar age and ilk - thanks perhaps to the intervention of Mary Bambridge Combine those excellently considered controls with superb visibility and remarkable comfort and the Tojeiro is a car in which you rapidly feel at home - meaning that you re soon punting it along Gloucestershire lanes with glee abandon and dreaming of a busy weekend at the races. Owner Peter Barguss is unsure exactly how much the Tojeiro weighs but with its aluminium body Perspex glazing to the sides and rear and nicely finished but nofrills cabin - not to mention the Featherweight lump under the DB2-style front-hinged bonnet - it s a long way from lardy. The upshot is a nimble precise little machine that just wants to play it s easy to imagine this fantastic little fastback eagerly dancing on tiptoes among the Elites at Goodwood although it would just as easily fulfill a role as a mount for weekend blasts on favourite country roads. The ability to switch seamlessly from one role to the other is surely the very crux of what makes machines of this era so endearing and the true definition of a sports car. In that respect this Tojeiro is a definite hit. ALL ESTIMATES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION In the early 70s Porsche had designs on racing a turbocharged version of the 911 in support of which they planned a homologation special along the lines of the Carrera 2.7 RS. A subsequent change in the rules negated the need for a precise number of street legal vehicles but the company continued with the project anyway. Unveiled at the October 1974 Paris Show the resultant Porsche 911 Turbo (930) was routinely among the fastest - if not THE fastest - accelerating supercars that money could buy during its fifteen-year production run (1975-1989). The newcomer was based around the Carrera 3.0 RS the engine from which was modified courtesy of turbo technology originally developed for the legendary 917 30 CAN-AM cars. Initially displacing 3.0 litres the need to keep pace with such supercar rivals as the Ferrari 512BB and Lamborghini Countach saw its force-fed flat-six grow to 3.3 litres in 1978. Although the adoption of Bosch fuel injection some four years later brought no more horsepower (300bhp 5 500rpm) it did result in greater torque and better throttle response. Thus equipped the 911 Turbo was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds and 162mph. To accommodate its extra performance over the 3.0 RS the 930 sported revised suspension larger brakes and a robust four-speed gearbox. In order to help deliver the power to the road a whale tail rear spoiler was fitted and a wider rear wheel tyre package was squeezed under specially flared arches. Adding this level of power to the already oversteer-prone handling of the 911 created a car that did not suffer fools gladly. In skilled hands however a 930 will show a clean pair of heels to most rivals. With more and more of today s supercars featuring traction control systems that cannot be deactivated the first series 911 Turbo s Jekyll and Hyde nature only adds to its appeal for certain enthusiasts. The Porsche Club of Great Britain estimates that less than 1 000 RHD 930s were UK supplied. 1 of just 938 Rest of the World (RoW) type C-Program 911 Turbos made between August 1981 and July 1982 this particular example - chassis 601 - was not only built to right-hand drive specification but also painted in special order Hellbronze Metallic. Although originally UK-supplied the Porsche has been Eire-registered since 1984 and is understood to have covered just 58 000 miles from new. Recently recommissioned following a period of prolonged dry storage the 930 is described by the vendor as being in very good excellent overall condition with regard to its 3.3-litre engine four-speed manual gearbox electrical equipment bodywork paintwork and interior trim. Pleasingly retaining its original Brown leather upholstery complete with Brown and Cream Pascha cloth inserts the 2 2-seater also boasts air-conditioning and a period Blaupunkt stereo. Starting readily upon inspection and looking every inch the 1980s supercar in its special order livery this reportedly low mileage 930 is expected to possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale. 32 REG NO CHASSIS T.B.A. WP0ZZZ93ZCS000601 61 ALL ESTIMATES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

An example of the first series of cars (of which only around 50 are understood to remain) this car with chassis number AM107 504 was the first to be equipped with the 4719cc as opposed to 4136cc engine by request of Dr Wax. The Dottore had also carburettors fitted in place of the Lucas fuel injection system (this can be reversed the parts are still available) and Bosch ignition instead of Magneti Marelli - all this has been documented. Among the many other unique or optional fitments that make it such a Maserati collector s dream are special 60mm exhaust pipes a pair of enlarged fuel tanks giving an extra 30 litres capacity Borrani Record wheels equipped with the original hubcaps emblazoned with Red Maserati logos (especially made for the Iniezione normally they were Blue) Sebring facia trimmed in leather rather than wood Bakelite-rimmed aluminium steering wheel chromebezzled instruments quadruple headlights powerassisted steering electric windows and the car s original Blaupunkt push-button radio. There was also a record player but that s subsequently been usurped by an airconditioning unit. Introduced at the November 1963 Turin Salon the Maserati Quattroporte was arguably the world s first Super Saloon . A bold move on the part of the Casa del Tridente-owning Orsi family the newcomer was part high-performance GT and part luxury limousine. Taking inspiration from the Maserati 5000GT he had penned for Prince Karim Aga Khan in 1961 Pietro Frua imbued the handsome Quattroporte with a low belt line slim-pillared glasshouse and neatly defined yet spacious boot. Based around a unique sheet steel box-section chassis equipped with independent front suspension a de Dion rear axle and four-wheel disc brakes the four- fiveseater was powered by a race-bred 4136cc quad-cam V8 engine allied to either ZF five-speed manual or Borg Warner three-speed automatic transmission. Credited with developing some 260bhp and 267lbft of torque the Maserati was capable of 0-60mph in around 8 seconds and over 140mph (depending upon the final drive ratio chosen). After the first few cars had been made Quattroporte production was transferred from Carrozzeria Frua to Carrozzeria Vignale (though Maggiora of Turin was responsible for fabricating the bodywork). Arriving in 1966 the updated Series II version (or Tipo 107A as it was known by the factory) sported a new quad-headlamp visage and revamped interior complete with lustrous wood cappings electric windows and standard fit airconditioning. While under the skin a revised leaf-sprung Salisbury back axle resulted in a quieter smoother ride. By the time production ceased the following year some 770 cars had been completed (circa Series I 260 Series II 510). Stylish fast and exclusive the big Maser was driven by the likes of Marcello Mastroianni Alberto Sordi Stewart Granger Anthony Quinn Peter Ustinov Leonid Breznev Prince Rainier of Monaco and Conte Volpi di Misurata. We understand the Quattroporte was the subject of a comprehensive restoration in 2012 2013 and the vendor presently views the Maserati s Connolly Vaumol interior trim and five-speed manual gearbox as being in excellent condition and the four-door bodywork Nero paintwork and V8 powerplant as very good . He is now offering the car complete with copies of the original order and factory build sheets plus a Maserati Heritage Certificate. This fine period Maserati is so much more than the sum of its graceful parts as it embodies a personal connection to the heart of Modena s premier car manufacturers.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION As far as historic rally cars go Subaru Impreza WRC97001 is one of the most important ever made David Lilywhite - Octane magazine May 2010 To many the mid 1990s was the heyday of the Subaru World Rally Team. Following the drivers and manufacturers double in 1995 and a further manufacturers title in 1996 the blue and yellow Impreza was rapidly becoming the icon of the championship and Colin McRae one of rallying s great stars. 1997 brought in a new era in the World Rally Championship with the introduction of the appropriately named World Rally Car formula. While some continued to compete with what were predominantly modified Group A cars the new FIA regulations provided an opportunity to bring new manufacturers into the championship who otherwise were unable to homologate suitable road cars. At Prodrive we seized the opportunity and while our Group A Impreza was already very competitive we went back to the drawing board to develop a new two door Impreza World Rally Car from scratch. The engineering team led by David Lapworth spent 1996 developing the new car and by the last event of the season Rallye Catalunya we were able to unveil our new car to the world s press. Whilst at this very same event Colin McRae gave the Impreza Group A a fitting send off by winning the Spanish rally and clinching a second manufacturers title for Subaru. Chassis 001 was the car we unveiled and used as our primary test and development car. It was thanks 34 to the many hours Colin and the other drivers spent at its wheel that when it came to the car s debut at Rally Monte Carlo in January 1997 Piero Latti was able to claim victory and help Subaru go on and win a third consecutive manufacturers title (David Richards Prodrive 2009) Taking full advantage of the new WRC rules Lapworth and his team liberated considerably more power and torque from the Impreza s force-fed 1994cc engine but without sacrificing reliability. Occupying almost an entire inner wing the newcomer s huge airbox was complemented by a similarly enlarged intercooler that sat in front of rather than atop the charismatic flatfour thus minimising heat soak. The turbocharger itself was little altered but revised inlet exhaust systems saw outputs increase to 300bhp and 347lbft of torque. The adoption of a two- rather than four-door bodyshell brought a notable increase in torsional rigidity as did the use of CAD to optimise the form and positioning of the integral rollcage (each monocoque took over 600 hours to reinforce prepare) while the new regulations also allowed the McPherson strut suspension to have longer travel. Less reliant on computer control than its successors the WRC97 fed power to all four wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox and front centre rear differentials. Styled by Peter Stevens of McLaren F1 fame the car s blistered wings front rear spoliers side skirts and even door mirrors were all wind tunnel-honed to maximise their aerodynamic efficiency. Hailed by Colin McRae as quick straight out the box and generally a bit better in every way as well as faster than its Group A predecessor Chassis 001 paved the way for its WRC97 sister cars to claim 119 stage wins and eight out of the fourteen World Rally Championship rounds between them.

Seemingly victorious on the Rali Vinho da Madeira Rally Cyprus and Aviano Rally in 1999 that same year apparently saw it piloted by none other than ninetime motorcycle champion Valentino Rossi to eighth place on the Rally di Monza. The Subaru s accompanying FIA World Rally Car Technical Passport reveals that it contested the 1999 Acropolis Rally and 2001 Swedish Rally but retired from both due to mechanical failure. Driven on the latter event by Tomas Hrdinka Petr Gross under the Styllex Tuning Prosport banner the Impreza subsequently carried the duo to a handful of victories and podium placings. Rallied extensively in Ireland from 2002 - 2007 Chassis 001 proved competitive into its final season. Initially road registered as P555 WRC (and tested in Spain by McRae right after the Rallye Catalunya with that plate on) but better known by its longterm moniker P18 WRC the car had been given a superficial cosmetic refurbishment prior to entering the current ownership. Drawn to first editions the previous keeper not only had Prodrive validate Chassis 001 but also commissioned them to restore it to original condition (becoming the Banbury outfit s first heritage customer in the process). The car was renovated using only original SRT parts many of which would be even more difficult to source today. Overseen by Prodrive sales manager Steve Smith and documented in an accompanying hardback book the resultant rejuvenation remains highly impressive and a real credit to David Richards and his team. Acid dipping revealed that Chassis 001 had endured a busy rally life but amazingly still retained its original Prodrive bodyshell which was painstakingly repaired by the same team who had fabricated it in 1996 Kevin Locke rebuilt the flat-four with a new stock closed-block and internals plus the difficult to find SRT exhaust manifolds after which it was set-up to run on super unleaded via a revised engine management map and suitable dyno testing. Fellow Prodrive staffer Darren Pentley overhauled the complete transmission and then tested it on Prodrive s unique transmission dyno before sign-off. A suitable handover ceremony marked the project s completion on 18th December 2009. The inscription in Chassis 001 s restoration book from that day simply reads best wishes and congratulations on acquiring a very special car - David The vendor sums up P18 WRC as follows It s a truly exhilarating car to drive with levels of grip and handling that would still embarrass many a modern supercar. Plus it runs on high octane pump fuel. It s doubtful that there will ever be another Subaru rally car from the same period restored like this one if only because the correct SRT parts are so difficult to locate. Pattern parts might be produced in time but Chassis 001 is the real thing We can only echo his sentiments and invite you to buy an important part of motorsport history.

It appears from the service book that the supplying dealer was Bentley Pangbourne in Berkshire. Shortly after the car s second birthday it was acquired by the vendor in August 2010 from the world-renowned Bentley distributor Jack Barclay in London. The mileage at the time of purchase was 12 800 and as the odometer currently records just 15 400 miles it is clear the vendor has covered just 2 600 miles in his seven years of ownership. The reason for this minimal distance is due to the American vendor keeping the car garaged in a Central London Mews garage close to his home in Belgravia London for use on his occasional visits to London. At the age of 91 the vendor has decided to stop driving which has necessitated the sale of his much-loved car. The two private owners of this lovely example have had it meticulously maintained the first owner using the supplying dealer the second owner using Jack Barclay. There were six Bentley stamps in the service book when we had sight of it with another service and MOT being carried out in May 2017 again by Jack Barclay. In fact only around seventy miles have been covered since July 2013.

The vendor acquired the car in Dallas Texas in 2015 and was told by the dealer he bought it from that it had been owned from new by a local Doctor and they believed the recorded mileage of 78 000 was all the Doctor and his wife had driven in the car. It was brought to England and the former engineer vendor immediately commenced a restoration. The work was completed in early 2017 and is documented in a photograph album that shows the car as purchased in Dallas and then in various stages of rejuvenation in England. The restoration included various light body repairs some new floor sections a repaint new leather and carpets to the interior and a new folding roof. Mechanical rejuvenation apparently included an overhaul of the differential new brake and fuel lines and a new brake servo all costing c. 31 000. As well as the photographic record of the works there are many parts invoices on file. The number on the engine matches that displayed on the chassis plate and the vendor describes the bodywork paintwork and interior trim as being in excellent condition.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION Being an Aston Martin concessionaire in the early 1960s was no cake walk. As well as a marked reluctance to help its dealers with warranty claims the cash-strapped manufacturer also pursued a decidedly evolutionary product strategy. Introduced in 1963 the DB5 may have boasted such niceties as an alternator tinted glass four exhaust silencers electric windows and more efficient Girling disc brakes but sharing the exact same sheetmetal as the outgoing DB4 Series 5 Vantage must have caused certain customers to look askance at its 4 125 list price (a twenty percent increase). Although some of the extra expense was down to the newcomer featuring an enlarged 3995cc version of the marque s proven Tadek Marek-designed DOHC straight-six engine (up from 3670cc). Nevertheless one can imagine the impact that the DB5 s starring role in the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger had on saleroom traffic. Indeed the svelte four-seater has been the stuff of dreams for boys of all ages ever since With a quoted 282bhp and 288lbft of torque on tap the super spy s preferred method of transport was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 8 seconds and 148mph. If ordinary customers had to do without an ejector seat they did at least get the benefit of an improved five-speed ZF manual transmission (albeit the earliest models came with a more antiquated four-speed plus overdrive gearbox). Only in production from 1963-1965 a mere 898 DB5 fixed-heads were ever made. Today survivors are justly regarded as some of the world s most desirable cars with the DVLA currently being able to account for 355 of them. According to its accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate this particular example chassis DB5 1614 R was completed on 11th June 1964. Originally finished in Sierra Blue metallic with Fawn Connolly leather upholstery its factory specification included a heated rear window Powr- 37 Lok limited slip differential Dunlop RS5 tyres triple SU HD8 carburettors and Select-a-ride shock absorbers. Road registered as AJW 646B the Aston Martin was supplied new via Cyril Williams Motors Ltd to Philip Horton Esq. of William Sharp (Birmingham) Ltd. Remarkably the DB5 remained part of Mr Horton s family until twelve years ago. Maintained by Andy Chapman of marque specialist Chapman Spooner for much of that time the four-seater had been entered for Aston Martin Owners Club concours events as early as 1966 and was refinished in its initial Sierra Blue livery not long before noted photographer David Campbell brought the Horton family s thirty-one-year-long custodianship to an end. Prior to his purchase in May 2005 Mr Campbell had the car thoroughly inspected by Colin Thew Aston Martin s former factory service manager. The latter s extensive report deemed the DB5 to be in generally very good condition with regard to its bodywork and chromework save for some corrosion to the front passenger footwell. On Mr Thew s recommendation Mr Campbell entrusted chassis DB5 1614 R to renowned marque specialist Post Vintage Engineering for various mechanical improvements including the fitment of a high capacity radiator core stainless steel exhaust replacement differential seal new oil cooler and fresh gearbox mountings plus an unleaded fuel conversion for the original matching numbers engine etc. The DB5 s next keeper Peter Mimpriss Esq. acquired it from Post Vintage Engineering during July August 2009. A solicitor by profession who has owned some exceptional motorcars over the years Mr Mimpriss made the sale conditional upon the four-seater being provided with (a) a guarantee to replace or repair at your expense any failure or malfunction of any component that may happen within twelve months of purchase and (b) written assurances as to both the body and chassis being free of corrosion and the car having suffered no accident damage .

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION It is true to say that the phenomenal success of the Jaguar XK120 was completely unexpected by Sir William Lyons and the team at Browns Lane whose post-war focus was the MKVII Saloon. However as the Saloon s chassis and XK engine neared completion in 1948 it occurred to Lyons that a sports car powered by the stunning new DOHC unit would probably outperform almost anything else in production at the time. The extraordinary decision was therefore made to design and build an XKpowered two-seater sports car in time for display at the Earls Court Motor Show of October 27 - an apparently impossible task in the six weeks available. The intention was depending on public reaction to hand-build a few hundred Roadsters as required. However within a few days of the Bronze show car going on display it was evident that a complete rethink was required - such was the euphoria with which the XK120 was greeted. In the end production spanned five years and the car was manufactured in three different guises - Roadster Fixed Head Coupe and Drophead Coupe the combined production volumes of which were 12 055 In order to confirm the model s top speed potential to the press the second XK120 built chassis 670002 was driven flat out on the Jabbeke straight Belgium in May 1949 achieving 126.448mph over the flying mile with hood and side screens erected and an astonishing 132.596 mph in stripped form. According to the accompanying copy of its FIVA Identity Card the stunning left-hand drive sale car vacated Jaguar s Browns Lane production line in June 1954 bound for the USA. It was first registered in August of that year to an R Burneson of California. It then passed to Walter D Willett (Arizona) and was the subject of a body-off chassis-up restoration before being acquired in 2006 by the multi-franchise car dealer and renowned classic car collector Bill Jacobs of Illinois. Jacobs passed away in 2010 and the still immaculate Jaguar was purchased by Albert Chin of New Jersey the following January before being sold to Chris Au (also of New Jersey) later the same year. It was in 2013 that its then American owner had it UK registered and drove in that and the ensuing year s Mille Miglia retrospective. The vendor acquired 385 YUT in September 2015. As an SE model XK120 it is correctly fitted with a factory-fitted plaque bearing the words It is certified that this Jaguar car is an exact replica of the record-breaking car which attained the speed of 132.6mph at Jabbeke Belgium 30 May 1949. William Haynes Chief Engineer Jaguar cars . In standard form an SE is endowed with 180bhp but it is understood that when restored 385 YUT was equipped with a slightly later XK120 cylinder block topped by a C-Type cylinder head that would have raised the output to c.210bhp. The Identity Card makes mention of a partial cosmetic restoration in 2011 2012 and it is unsurprising the vendor presently regards the bodywork Dark Blue paintwork Red Connolly hide interior trim 3.4-litre XK engine and four-speed manual gearbox as all being in excellent condition.

VAT ( 20%) THE WOODCOTE PARK AUCTION Launched at the April 1951 Turin Salon the Lancia Aurelia B20 GT was a revelation. Styled by Ghia s Boano (Pinin Farina assumed responsibility for production after the first ninety-eight cars) the super-sleek fastback coupe was lower lighter and stiffer than its four-door siblings. Sitting on a 20cm shorter wheelbase the B20 was initially powered by the same enlarged 2-litre V6 as the B21 (albeit with a few tuning modifications). Further benefiting from stiffer suspension and bigger brakes the GT handled so well that it put many sportscars to shame. Meticulously prepared but to standard specification four Works B20 GTs were entered for the 1951 Mille Miglia. Leaving Brescia at 3 20am on Sunday 29th April the Lancia pairing of Giovanni Bracco and Umberto Maglioli were met with torrential rain. Making the most of the appalling conditions they were among the first six cars to reach Rome attacking the mountains with gusto and taking five minutes out of Villoresi s leading Ferrari 340 America on the penultimate Appenine leg alone. Thwarted by the fast straight roads that predominated after Bologna they finished an incredible second overall (less than twenty minutes behind the Ferrari after thirteen hours racing). During its first two seasons the B20 GT secured another class win on the Mille Miglia plus class victories at Le Mans (1951 1952) Coppa d Oro delle Dolomiti (1951 1952) Pescara 6-hours (1951) Carrera Panamericana (1952) and Targa Florio (1952) amongst others. Evolved through six series the B20 GT became progressively more refined gaining a larger 2.5 litre engine in 3rd Series guise. This example having been discovered sitting on blocks in Milan with c.80 000km recorded in 1965 was purchased by British Lancista Harry Manning and imported to the UK where around 1967 he swapped the troublesome 3rd Series engine for a slightly more powerful but still Mille Miglia eligible 4th Series unit with shell bearings. It then passed through three further keepers before coming into the current ownership in 1987. Recommissioned by Tim Burrett the car was used for the next eighteen months before a minor bodywork repair escalated into a full blown restoration which took place between 1989 and 1991. The engine was entrusted to marque experts Omicron Engineering whilst 39 Glen Gibbs looked after the bodywork and S&H Motorsport were commissioned to oversee the trimming and finishing of the car. Painted in Lancia Warm Water Green and trimmed with beige West of England Cloth the accompanying history file includes numerous invoices detailing the works carried out and an album of photographs of the restoration. The vendor estimates that some 60 000 has been spent although he has never wished to add up the bills Shortly after completion the car achieved a class concours win and in 2000 it was displayed on the Lancia Club stand at the NEC as part of the Aurelia 50th anniversary celebrations. Looked after by Omicron a number of European tours have been successfully completed including three trips to Italy and one to Sicily. We are advised the car is extremely useable and drives very well indeed it is expected to be driven to the sale venue from London.

The monocoque body featured independent front suspension by MacPherson strut and a live axle with leaf springs at the rear. Braking was by discs drums and steering by rack and pinion. Initially available with the four-cylinder Kent unit in 1300cc and 1600cc forms and a 2000cc V4 Essex by September the 136bhp 3-litre V6 Essex unit had been added to the line-up. Slick four-speed manual or three-speed automatic gearboxes were optioned. In the early 1970s Ford enjoyed considerable success in the European Touring Car Championship initially with the RS2600 and then following BMW s introduction of the 3.0 CSL with the RS3100. The RS3100 s Cosworthdeveloped overbored Essex 3.0 V6 along with other improvements ensured the car remained competitive. Original RS3100s are much coveted by collectors and it is no surprise that a number of evocations have been produced over the years. The lovely example offered today left Dagenham as a 1600 XL and at some point in its life was turned into a convincing RS3100 lookalike . Powered by a 3.0 Essex V6 sourced from a Scimitar the shell is said to be original and extremely solid whilst the c.35 000 miles recorded though unwarranted are believed to be genuine. Originally finished in orange with a vinyl roof this fast Ford exudes period charm even down to the Springalex steering wheel.

Mulliner crafted for the Bentley S1 Continental chassis was decidedly rarer than that fitted to its R-Type predecessor. Stylistically more reserved but still flowing and purposeful and free from any needless excrescence the newcomer was not only underpinned by a notably stiffer chassis (up fifty percent in terms of torsional rigidity) but also boasted a smaller turning circle more compliant suspension and improved hydraulic brakes. Typically allied to four-speed automatic transmission its refined 4887cc OISE straight-six engine yielded a 120mph top speed and impressive acceleration. Arguably the ultimate Bentley S1 Continental variant the H.J. Mulliner Fastback was among the very fastest and most glamorous four-seaters of its generation. According to its accompanying copy chassis cards this particular example - chassis BC94AF - was supplied new via Jack Barclay Ltd and Mann Egerton & Co Ltd to James Douglas Alston CBE of South Lopham Hall Diss Norfolk (a gentleman farmer and former deputy Lord Lieutenant of Norfolk whose business interests extended to Norwich City Football Club). Clothed by H.J. Mulliner with body number 5888 the Bentley was initially road registered as SYE 545 on 5th July 1956 and finished in Tartan Green with Champagne leather upholstery. Purchased from Jack Barclay Ltd by A.J. Koenen Esq. - a London-based wine merchant - some three years and 38 000 miles later the Fastback passed to its third keeper the renowned stage and screen actor Patrick Allen Esq during February 1966. Reregistered as PKA 999 during his tenure which copy Jack Barclay Ltd invoices show lasted well into the 1970s chassis BC94AF is then known to have passed through the hands of Bertram Cowen Ltd Kevin Dolan Esq. and Nicholas Hart Esq. before entering the current ownership on October 1st 1984 (purchase invoice on file).

A small team headed by Yoshihiko Matsuo developed the project and whilst the 240Z which debuted in 1969 was a smash hit Stateside sales were hampered in Britain by a high purchase price and residual anti-Japanese sentiment. The straight-six (L24) motor was a revelation in drivability and would scream to its high-for-theday 6500rpm redline whilst the rugged all-round independent McPherson strut suspension allowed for hooligan driving in a league beyond that of its natural competitor the 3-litre Capri. Arriving during 1973 the 260Z had a more grownup GT-esque feel about it and was powered by an enlarged 2565cc unit (hence the 260 nomenclature). The newcomer further benefited from a strengthened floorpan chassis rails and the adoption of a rear anti-roll bar. More luxuriously trimmed than its predecessor the 260Z remained in production until 1978. Originally delivered to the USA this left-hand drive two seater benefits from a recent respray in the original striking shade of green complimented by a black interior. Imported to the UK in 2016 by the previous owner the car also had attention paid to its floorpan upon arrival. The recognised modification of the fitment of a 5-speed Nissan Silvia gearbox has also been carried out. Further improvements include Koni adjustable shock absorbers polyurethane suspension bushes and a recent fast road clutch. Subsequently acquired by the vendor who intended to develop the car for use in long-distance road rallies a change of plans now prompts its sale. Displaying some 69 430 miles this lovely Z is accompanied by a Swansea V5 and will have a fresh MoT in time for the sale. The current cherished registration is being retained.

The F355 was revealed to be seven seconds and four seconds a lap faster round Ferrari s Fiorano test track than the 348 and 512TR respectively.

Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds 0-100mph in 10.6 seconds and 185mph the F355 was an undoubted supercar.

The Auctioneer has to rely on information as to the date condition and authenticity provided by the Seller and does not provide its own description and does not and cannot undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lot and it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that the Lot conforms to the description in the catalogue. The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN number under which a vehicle is offered but relies on the Seller s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing rallying or ex-works history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times both in a vehicle s works career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes works vehicles were fitted with different registration plates so that a vehicle could meet a particular event s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity. 12.2 The Buyer shall be the person making the highest bid at or over Reserve (if any) that is accepted by the Auctioneer and the Contract shall be concluded at the fall of the hammer. The Auctioneer shall have the absolute discretion to settle any dispute related to bidding at the Sale. All sales are deemed not to be sales in the course of a business unless notified to the contrary. 12.3 Every bidder shall be deemed to act as a principal unless the Auctioneer has prior to the auction date acknowledged (either by acceptance of the Bidder s Registration Form which discloses the true principal or otherwise in writing) that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of a disclosed principal. 12.4 The Auctioneer may in its absolute discretion refuse to accept any bid advance the bidding as it may decide withdraw or divide any Lot combine any two or more Lots and in the case of dispute may put up any Lot for auction again. 12.5 A prospective bidder should register his intention to bid for a Lot by completing fully and signing a Bidder s Registration Form prior to executing his bid. If this has not been completed before the fall of the hammer the Buyer shall forthwith complete the Bidder s Registration Form. The Bidder shall also provide photographic identification. Failure to do so shall not invalidate the sale unless the Auctioneer in its absolute discretion so decides. 12.6 Any bid which fails to reach the Reserve may be submitted by the Auctioneer to the Seller and if the Seller accepts that bid the Lot will be deemed to have been sold to the Buyer at the sum bid at the fall of the hammer and the normal Terms and Conditions will apply to that sale. 13.1 Where a Lot is illustrated by a photograph in the case of a vehicle with a registration number visible that number will not be transferred with the vehicle to the Buyer unless the registration particulars appear in the written part of the description and the transfer has been authorised by the Seller. If the vehicle is sold to the Buyer before the formalities of the allocation of a different registration number to that vehicle are completed with the DVLA the Buyer accepts that he will take all steps necessary to co-operate with either the Seller or the Auctioneer to have the number re-transferred to the Seller or as may be and will take no steps to register the vehicle with the number in his name. 13.2 Whilst the interests of prospective Buyers are best served by personal attendance at the Sale the Auctioneers will if so 94 instructed execute bids on their behalf. Neither the Auctioneer nor its Employees or Agents will be responsible for any error or default in doing so or in failing altogether to do so. Where the Auctioneer executes bids on behalf of an absent bidder each Lot will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and any relevant Reserve. 14. The Buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer in respect of each Lot the Buyer s Commission calculated on the Hammer Price at the stated rates as set out above. 15. Where a Lot is described in the Catalogue or announced at the time of Sale as being subject to VAT on import VAT will be payable in addition to the Hammer Price (which VAT may or may not be refundable by HM Customs & Excise on proof of export). 16.1 Upon the sale of a Lot the Buyer shall 16.2 Unless he has already done so complete a Bidder s Registration Form as in Condition 12.5 above 16.3 Pay to the Auctioneer the total amount due at latest by midday on the day after the Sale notwithstanding that where the Buyer wishes to export the Lot an export licence may be required which must be obtained by the Buyer at his own cost 16.4 Accept that any payments received by the Auctioneer from a Buyer may be applied by the Auctioneer towards any sums owing from that Buyer to the Auctioneer on any account whatsoever without regard to any directions of the Buyer or his agent whether express or implied. 17.1 Until the total amount due has been received by the Auctioneer (a) title in a Lot shall not pass to the Buyer but the risk shall (b) no Lot may be taken away by or on behalf of the Buyer. 17.2 The Buyer shall be responsible for any removal storage and insurance charges and any other Expenses on any Lot not paid for and taken away by 1pm on the day following the day of the sale. 18.1 If a Buyer fails either to pay for or to take away any Lot the Auctioneer may without further notice to the Buyer at its discretion and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies as may be relevant in relation to any and all remedies for non-payment that the Auctioneer may choose to exercise. The Buyer will pay to the Auctioneer all legal and other costs borne by it on a full indemnity basis. 18.2 To charge interest at a rate not exceeding 3% per month over Natwest Bank s base rate on so much of the total amount due as remains unpaid after the date and time referred to in condition 16.3 for the first two months.

If the Seller decides to sell the Lot elsewhere the Auctioneer may proceed against the Buyer for the Commission which it would have earned both from the Seller and the Buyer together with VAT on both had the Buyer paid for the Lot in accordance with these Conditions. 18.4 To rescind the sale of that or any other Lots sold to the same Buyer at this or any other Sale in respect of which title has not passed. 18.5 To resell the Lot or cause it to be resold by public or private sale such that any deficiency in the total amount due resulting from such resale (after giving credit for any payment) together with the full costs incurred in connection with the Lots shall be paid to the Auctioneer by the Buyer any surplus in excess of the Sale Proceeds of that resale shall belong to the Seller. 18.6 To store the Lot at the sole expense of the Buyer and to release the Lot only after payment in full of the total amount due together with the accrued cost of the removal storage and insurance and all other expenses incurred in connection with the Lot. 18.7 To retain that or any other Lot sold to the Buyer at the same or any other auction and to release the same only after payment of the total amount due. 18.8 To apply by way of set-off any Sale Proceeds of any Lot then due or at any time thereafter becoming due to the Buyer towards settlement of the total amount due and expenses and the Auctioneer shall be entitled to a lien on any property of the Buyer which is in the Auctioneer s possession for any purpose. 18.9 To reject or ignore any bids made by or on behalf of the defaulting Buyer at any future sales or insist upon a cash deposit before accepting any bids in future. 19.1 All Lots are offered as seen with all faults and defects without any guarantee or warranty attaching thereto as to condition roadworthiness or otherwise and with all faults and defects whether apparent upon examination or not. 19.2 In any event neither the Seller nor the Auctioneer shall be liable for any indirect or consequential loss whatsoever and the maximum liability of the Auctioneer together with its Employees and Agents in the event of any claim against them arising from the sale of any Lot shall be limited to the Hammer Price plus Buyer s Premium in respect of that Lot.

The Auctioneer in all respects acts and will be treated as agent for the Seller (except where the Auctioneer is expressly stated to be selling as principal) and is not responsible for any default by the Seller or the Buyer to the other party. 21. The Auctioneer will not accept any liability for damage sustained to a Lot that is attributable to members of the public or non-Auctioneer operatives during the Sale or any removable items left within lots during the same period. Any claims for damage and or lost items must be submitted to the Auctioneer in writing no later than 3 working days after the date of the Sale and include a valid quote for repair or replacement and digital photographs where applicable. 22. The Auctioneer shall be under no liability for any injury damage or loss sustained by any person while on the Auctioneers premises (including any premises where a sale may be conducted or where a Lot or a part of a Lot may be on view from time to time) except for death or personal injury caused by the negligence of the Auctioneers or its employees and agents in the course of their duties to the Auctioneers. 23. The Auctioneer shall have the right at its sole discretion without assigning any reason to refuse any person admission to its Premises or attendance at any of its Sales or to view any Lot. 24. The Auctioneer shall keep and use any data relating to the Buyer and the Seller in accordance with the provisions of all relevant data protection legislation.
