Like the myriad other innovations which H&H has pioneered over the last twenty-one years it was aimed at improving our service to both sellers and buyers alike. Being smaller and lighter than the industry norm means that H&H auction catalogues are now sent out to over 43 000 people worldwide via post email and e-catalogue. None of our competitors can boast a circulation half as large (and most struggle to reach a tenth of that figure). What our catalogues lack in stature or extraneous information they make up for in readership. We also provide separate A4 brochures printed on demand for headline lots and our website which attracts up to 18 000 users per week carries more images of the vehicles on offer than it would ever be practicable to reproduce here. Buyers have been quick to praise the new catalogue for its easy to read layout concise and factual vehicle descriptions and handy size making it a working tool rather than just an awkward thing to cart around.

This year s headline figures certainly make for impressive reading with a combined sales total of 427 million (up 39.4% on 2013 s gross takings). However several star lots failed to find new homes because they were perceived as being priced ahead of the market. Even the record-breaking 38 115 000 commanded by a Ferrari 250GTO was judged a disappointment in some quarters. Indeed the overall sell-through rate was a sanguine 63.2% (791 of 1 252 cars offered). Long standing collectors might find themselves going toeto-toe with speculators but the latter tend to be (a) equally well informed and (b) decidedly catholic in taste. The price boom we have experienced over the last few years has had post-WW2 sports cars as its primary focus. Nine of the ten top selling lots at Monterey this summer were Ferraris (the interloper being a Ford GT40). Certain Porsche and Mercedes-Benz models have become hot property too as have the most iconic Jaguars and Aston Martins. The best pre-WW2 machines are still keenly fought over but their investment potential is perceived as less certain. Put simply more people can relate to a 1960s Ferrari than a 1930s Alfa Romeo. Manufacturers are increasingly alive to the PR value of an active heritage programme especially as burgeoning production volumes necessarily make their latest and greatest that little bit less special. Ferrari built some 13 000 cars during its first twenty-six years but would now eclipse that total within two Of course rarity is no guarantee of value especially if it tips into obscurity. You cannot covet something you do not know exists. The likes of the Mille Miglia Storica Le Mans Classic and Goodwood Revival go from strength to strength and have definitely played their part in making eligible machinery ever more desirable valuable. The wider economy continues to improve (thank goodness) which may encourage some to seek out more traditional forms of investment such as property or stocks and shares with a consequent effect on demand. That said the majority of money that has been put into the collector car market of late has been existing rather than borrowed funds. There simply is not the same spectre as there was in the late 1980s early 1990s of loans suddenly being called-in. The collector motorcycle market has been somewhat more cautious than its four-wheeled equivalent and therefore arguably has a greater potential for growth. 4 Whether you are new to the world of classic cars or a seasoned collector H&H work with corporate partners who we believe can augment the classic vehicle ownership experience. Our partnership with Hill Dickinson one of the UK s largest law firms can ensure that your ownership of a classic vehicle is structured in the best way to meet your tax and inheritance situation.

The new machine was able to approach the best of the British twins in terms of outright performance with the 594cc horizontally opposed overhead valve engine delivering 35bhp at 6 800rpm sufficient to propel the machine to 102mph but more importantly was able to sustain its pace almost indefinitely. Earles forks and a new pivoted fork frame ensured that the rider remained comfortable and was able to exploit the performance offered by the new mount to the full quickly establishing it as a favourite with long distance riders. 1960 witnessed the release of an improved version typed the R69S which developed more brake horse power (42 at 7 000rpm) without compromising the machine s outstanding reliability. Cycle World concluded their June 1962 road test of the BMW R69S in the following manner Whatever the BMW s merits in a contest of speed it is still 15 the smoothest best finished quietest and cleanest motorcycle it has ever been our pleasure to ride. To be honest we think that anyone who would worry much over its performance-potential is a bit of a booby. The R69S is fast enough to handle any encounter and it has attributes that are in touring infinitely more valuable than mere speed. All things considered if we were planning a two-wheel style vacation tour the BMW would have to be our choice of mount. This example of the R69 variant is fitted with a Steib sidecar and had been in the same ownership for a number of years prior to his demise. It had benefited from some restoration work and is described as being in OK condition mechanically and cosmetically although it will require some recommissioning prior to use.

According to Asa Moyce the authority on Drixton racing machines it was first seen at the 1970 East German Grand Prix. The frame which was built by Marly Drixl differed from the earlier 1967 pattern frames in having the top tubes pass over the cylinder heads of the 500cc twin cylinder Honda engine rather than around them as on the earlier machine. Asa Moyce suggests that only a couple of examples of this chassis were built being used together with the earlier variant by T Denneghey Jean Campiche and Lewis Young to secure top ten finishes in the 1970 premier class. The machine which has been in the same ownership for the last twenty five years is offered in original unrestored condition. The 500cc engine features twin plug heads with Dell Orto 38mm SS carburettors. The two into one exhaust system and oil cooler are later additions as are the electronic ignition system and tachometer. The oil cooler is thought to have been fitted to counter Italy s warm climate and the exhaust system may improve torque. Ceriani rear suspension units and BEB forks help keep things under control and Fontana brakes retard the machine. A fairing is provided with this machine which is described as running well. 16 1955 VELOCETTE SPORTS SPECIAL REG NO FRAME NO ENGINE NO PXR 146 5540 VM1261 ESTIMATE 7 000 8 000 This interesting Venom based special has benefited from an increase in engine capacity to 565cc obtained using a different flywheel assembly.

Kreidler returned to GP s in 1969 with the Dutch importer Van Veen running the team and developing the motorcycles. The works example offered dates from 1981 and was purchased directly from Herbert Rittberger the Kreidler team manager during late 1981 early 1982 by a British businessman entering Ian McConnachie in races both in the UK and on the continent during 1982. The machines owner was attempting to resurrect the Rudge marque and consequently the machine was refinished in black and gold and campaigned wearing Rudge insignia during the 1983 Grand Prix season by Ian McConnachie. As is only to be expected this works machine shares little in common with the over the counter racers marketed by Kreidler at the time. Nico Bakker crafted the frame and the Herbert Rittberger tuned short stroke engine which produced nearly 22bhp is described as being in race ready condition. 18 N A 101-07 101-02 The bike was restored in 1998 and is presented in very excellent condition in the original green and orange Kreidler livery.

Its gleaming 31 black paintwork set off nicely by the distinctive polished alloy crankcases separate gearbox long graceful chrome plated exhaust pipe and silencer the bike is described by the entrant as all good on the sale particulars. Built tough in Yorkshire as is verified by the considerable number of survivors the Panther was always regarded as a quality machine available at a reasonable price a sentiment that is as true today as ever it was. 1989 HONDA RS250R REG NO FRAME NO ENGINE NO N A RS250RF10273 T.B.A. ESTIMATE 7 500 8 500 The example offered dates from 1989 and is described as being in race or parade ready condition following a restoration carried out by the present owner that has seen it returned to very good condition in all respects.

The model continued for the 1933 season wit only minor changes and the adoption of a C prefix in place of the B to denote the 1933 model year. For 1934 the Mechanical Marvel adopted the 14 model code at the head of the Excelsior range. The example offered has an illustrious history. It won the 1936 Motor Cycle Clubmans Trophy at Brooklands in the hands of A MacIntosh The name which is engraved on the Trophy and was published in The Motor Cycle report published on the 30th April 1936 was a non de guerre for Howard Earle who wished to hide his competitive activities from his parents. It is interesting to note that both the organisers and the journalist responsible for the report appear to have been aware of the subterfuge as the name A MacIntosh appears betwixt inverted commas on the cup and in the report. Little is known of the machines subsequent history but in 2006 the current owner commenced the restoration of the motorcycle which saw the engine 20 HC 6690 TT89 JORZ 30580 being reconditioned together with the transmission magneto and cycle parts and the paintwork and brightwork renewed the work being completed during 2007.

The model featured 799cc vee twin side valve engine coupled to a three speed gearbox with chain primary and final drives. Potential owners could choose from a range of eight sidecars produced by C.W. Hayward by 1927 a wholly owned subsidiary of AJS. The H2 was fitted with a magneto unlike the H1 which was fitted with a magdyno providing electric lighting and accounting for its higher list price of 95 compared to 80 for the H2. If ordered without a sidecar attached the two machines would cost 73 and 63 respectively. The example offered has been in the same family ownership since the 1950 s and was restored during the 1980 s.

Power came from that car s 1074cc engine but the output was slightly higher (36bhp). The model re-emerged virtually unchanged after the war and remained so until the 4A variant of 1949 which featured a Solex carburettor in place of the SU and benefited from a four- rather than threespeed gearbox.

Having piloted everything from a Lotus Formula Atlantic single-seater to a Ferrari 250GTO at circuits throughout Europe not to mention Monaco Sao Paulo Guyana SA and Barbados she purchased this Austin A40 as a standard road car during 1989 and had it converted for historic rallying. Used to contest the Charringtons Historic RAC Rally of Great Britain (x1) Retrospective Circuit of Ireland Rally (x3) and Circuit of Ireland Historic Rally (x2) from 1990-1995 the two-door saloon was reconfigured as a circuit racer in time for the 2000 Goodwood Revival. Last run in anger at Chimay during 2005 after a string of class and group wins 32 in the Top Hat and Oldies but Goldies race series the Austin was regularly started and moved around whilst on display at the Beaulieu House Car Museum in Ireland from 2006-2013.

Although without a current V5C registration document the car is still listed on the DVLA and HPi databases under the number plate HUR 216C .

Returning to the road the following decade the Darracq was issued with Certificate of Dating No. 399 by the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain on 15th April 1954. In addition to identifying its year of manufacture as 1908 the Club noted that the Type R was road registered as LB 6416 wore twoseater coachwork and had the larger twin-cylinder 10 12 engine (bore 112mm x stroke 120mm). Acquired by Howard L. Gutteridge during 1964 but infrequently licensed over the next ten years chassis 17060 found a more active custodian in J. Stuart White who used it for the Hull-Scarborough Run Peter Black Rally and other North East Section events. Migrating to Holland during the late 1980s the Darracq appears to have been on museum display for a while (or so various accompanying photographs depicting it alongside similar brass era cars and period-attired mannequins would suggest). Treated to an extensive restoration in 2004 the Type R had much of its woodwork renewed ahead of a repaint from Green to Blue plus a re-trim 33 and attention to its wiring and wheels tyres etc. Entering the current ownership some three years ago the two-seater has since been re-registered by the DVLA as 956 YUG . Stated by the vendor to run well and to have a surprising turn of speed thanks to its willing twin-cylinder engine and three-speed manual transmission the Darracq remains highly presentable. Sporting a rear-mounted spare tyre wicker parasol holder split windscreen wood-rim steering wheel and brass lighting set it looks every inch the Edwardian gadabout. Ideal for the Creepy Crawly and other VCC events this charming Type R is offered for sale with V5C Registration Document assorted literature copy VCC Dating Certificate and numerous restoration photographs. 1994 MERCEDES S600 COUPE REG NO CHASSIS L818XVV WDB1400762A153776 Finished in black with cream leather this right hand drive automatic transmission example of Mercedes flagship coupe which cost 88 000 when new had 1800 spent with Mercedes Ipswich in May 2013 and is believed to be in generally good condition.

It was he who changed the original Wilson pre-selector gearbox for a conventional manual shift one. Around ten years ago the car was repainted in Silver over Blue which contrasts well with the Cream leather interior. Some 4 321 examples of the 2.3-litre Whitleys are understood to have been built before the model was superseded by the Sapphire in 1954. 1979 MERCEDES-BENZ 450 SL REG NO CHASSIS Entered from a Private Collection THG237T 10704422053468 22 ESTIMATE 5 000 6 000 The vendor acquired this right-hand drive 450SL in 2008 and has subsequently stored it as a member of his private car collection.

Based around a near identical ladder-frame chassis the newcomer benefited from the adoption of a more refined hypoid-bevel rear axle while being considerably torquier than the unit it replaced the new 2 088cc OHV four-cylinder engine made for an altogether more relaxed drive. Still bodied in Birmabright alloy over an ash frame the 2000 28 used more panel bracing than the 1800 and thus had a tauter feel. The 2000 on offer was owned by Brian Johnson the lead singer of the rock band AC DC and his Top Gear interview with Jeremy Clarkson can still be viewed Series 13 Episode 6. Apparently he also refers to the Triumph in his autobiography Rockers and Rollers . Nicely presented BWG 640 is finished in pale Metallic Blue and trimmed in Red and is said by the vendor to be in fine running order . 1954 MG TF 1250 REG NO CHASSIS 931 UYE XPAGTF34038 ESTIMATE 18 000 22 000 Introduced in 1953 and based on the MG TD MKII the TF was intended as little more than an interim model pending the arrival of the all-new MGA two years later. However its fared-in headlights and a sloping radiator grille endowed it with notably more modern looks than its predecessors and some 9600 were sold during the short production run good examples of which are highly prized today. The handsome 1250 TF offered was fully restored 37 29 in 2012 when the MG displayed (an unwarranted) 49 840 miles and has apparently travelled just 200 since meaning the refurbished engine is not even fully run in. The vendor informs us that Old English White paintwork and Red vinyl trim are in as new condition while the wire wheels have been correctly finished in Silver rather than chrome plate. 931 UYE is now being offered complete with manuals handbook badge bar and pair of auxiliary lights. 1955 AUSTIN-HEALEY 100 30 ESTIMATE 38 000 45 000 REG NO CHASSIS Extensively restored home market car EU-Reg BN1-224847 unit Healey 3000 brake servo battery motorsport specification cut-off switch laminated windscreen heater and mohair tonneau cover. The 2660cc engine was completely reconditioned by Total Performance Germany the brakes and suspension systems fully overhauled with many new parts and a reconditioned alternator installed. According to its accompanying Heritage Certificate this exceedingly handsome right-hand drive AustinHealey 100 4 BN1 is a home market example that was supplied new by Sam Robbins Ltd of Rugby in April 1955. Its factory fitted extras numbered a heater and laminated windscreen. At that stage the car was Healey Blue all over. The vendor purchased it in England in 2002 and exported it to Germany where he now lives - hence the German registration of MYK AV55H . In the last two years the Healey has been treated to a comprehensive restoration at considerable cost. The numerous new parts fitted include wiring loom and other electrics high-performance aluminium radiator performance oil cooler electric fan with thermostat high-performance starter motor water pump lead-free alloy cylinder head SU H6 carburettors starter solenoid gearbox overdrive 38 The restored shell was finished in the classic combination of Healey Blue over Old English White and the interior retrimmed in leather-look Black vinyl. The many extras include a pair of Lucas spotlights uprated silver-painted wire wheels leather bonnet strap alloy engine rocker cover and wood-rim steering wheel. Unsurprisingly the vendor now classifies the bodywork paintwork four-cylinder engine and threespeed manual gearbox as excellent and the interior trim as very good . He is now offering the Big Healey complete with the aforementioned Heritage Certificate and appropriate German paperwork. The odometer currently registers an unwarranted 69 000 miles. There is a strong market for good examples of the Big Healey - the car that stole the London Motor show of 1952 - and this matching numbers example should excite plenty of interest. 1973 FERRARI DAYTONA SPYDER EVOCATION ESTIMATE 30 000 40 000 REG NO CHASSIS 31 CPN 1K 1P1501BW Highly authentic E.G. Autokraft Arrow car for circa 80 Daytona Spyder Evocations in total. Commissioned by Carl Patrick Nicholson (hence the CPN 1K numberplate) this particular example retains the identity and 5.3-litre V12 of its Jaguar XJ12 S1 donor. Reconditioned by the factory at a cost of 3 800 (c.1990) the aforementioned powerplant was allied to a brand new Borg Warner automatic gearbox. Reportedly zeroed after 1 500 debugging miles the Spyder s odometer showed 4 113 miles when the car passed its last MOT test on 12th August 2014 with no advisories. Entering the current ownership during late November 2013 CPN 1K was somewhat tired. As well as having attention paid to its indicators pop-up headlamps instruments door window rubbers and chromework the two-seater was treated to a reconditioned power steering rack engine gearbox oil changes new rear shock absorbers and overhauled Stromberg carburettors by a Jaguar specialist. Further benefiting from a new battery Sony CD Radio radiator double-lined mohair hood hood cover distributor spark plugs sun visors and wing mirrors this stunning Daytona Spyder Evocation performed notably well during a recent passenger ride and sports a Nardi steering wheel as well as a sumptuous Connolly Wilton-trimmed interior that would apparently cost some 8 000 to replicate. 39 Ferrari made just 122 Daytona Spyders (of which a mere seven were RHD) versus 1 284 Berlinettas. The recent sale in August 2014 of a Spyder for 2 640 000 (c. 1 582 000) not only underlines the model s desirability but also explains why numerous Berlinettas were converted by the likes of E.G.

Its Metallic Blue paintwork and brightwork have apparently faded in places due to years of enthusiastic polishing and are therefore classed as average by the vendor but he tells us the coupe drives superbly and is graced 41 35 with good bodywork V8 engine and automatic transmission. The Black hide interior and Tan carpets are said to be highly original despite the Corniche apparently never being equipped with overrugs. The Rolls s luxurious specification includes electric rear windows and an electric sunroof and the car comes complete with an MOT valid into August of next year.

A left-hand drive export model it was owned from 1996 until last year by a William C Alexander of Kansas USA. Though there are no supporting invoices the Jaguar has clearly been the subject of much restoration work and the effect of its resplendent Red bodywork is heightened by very shiny brightwork and a smartly presented Black 43 leather interior. The vendor notes that the car bore several road rally stickers when he acquired it which combined with its apparently lively performance suggests the engine may have been breathed upon at some stage.

Featuring a lower ratio 3rd gear to improve driveability the car has been regularly exercised by the vendor and maintained by Tim Wellack who carried out work on the engine in 2013. The striking blue wheels were also repainted that same year. The engine and transmission are said to be good with electrics all working whilst the fabric body presents well. Some blemishes to the paintwork are present but we have to concur with the vendor s view that the car should be driven more than polished.

The Beige and Black interior 52 was largely renewed the seals replaced and the sunroof refurbished. All five wheels were refinished and equipped with new tyres. The cylinder head and Dellorto carburettors were overhauled and cooling system and distributor renewed along with the clutch hydraulics and most of the braking system.

The little Singer has won numerous trophies which are to be included with the car. The Singer Roadster was a two-door four-seat Convertible version of the company s Bantam Saloon. Power came from that car s 1074cc engine but the output was slightly higher (36bhp).

The vendor purchased TCH 547 from a senior member of H&H two years ago and informs us it is a well maintained and relatively unblemished example of this increasingly collectible model.

This gorgeous drop-side flatbed L311 was manufactured in 1960 and then professionally restored a few years ago using original parts. Finished in a stately shade of deep Green and trimmed in Brown it doubtless attracts admiring glances wherever it travels and has apparently won numerous classic vehicle awards as well as starred in some advertising shoots. The vendor unsurprisingly grades the bodywork 56 paintwork interior trim 100bhp straight-six diesel engine and manual gearbox as all being in very good order. There are numerous items of nicely-presented brightwork including exterior-mounted horns and a period fire extinguisher and this pampered lorry even comes complete with logoed carpet mats and mud flaps.

A unique opportunity. 1965 IWR LOTUS ELAN GT 58 ESTIMATE 50 000 70 000 REG NO CHASSIS Unique aluminium coachwork by Williams & Pritchard NAB953D IWR-GT-2 Resolutely calm under pressure Ian Walker s impressive Boy s Own resume included stints as a Lancaster bomber rear gunner rally driver circuit racer and team boss. Having forged close links with Colin Chapman to the point that he (a) operated as Ian Walker Team Lotus (b) could call upon the services of F1 drivers and (c) helped develop the 26R the London-born entrepreneur set his sights on winning the Index of Thermal Efficiency at the 1964 Le Mans 24-hours. Based on a modified Elan chassis but bodied in aluminium by Williams & Pritchard to Ian Walker s own design the resultant fastback coupe was not only a highlight of the 1964 Racing Car Show but also partnered Jackie Stewart to 4th overall (1st-in-class) at that May s Montlhery Prix de Paris. Suitably smitten Swiss businessman Hermann Huber tried to buy the lightweight streamliner there 58 and then but was politely told that a pre-Le Mans sale was impossible. Sadly a crash during practice for the Nurburgring 1000km (due to brake failure) meant that the sports racer never participated in the French 24-hour endurance classic. Put aside until the season s end it was subsequently repaired and advertised for sale in the January 29th 1965 issue of Autosport by which time its creator had acceded to Hermann Huber s revised request that he build a second (and final) aluminium-clothed Elan. Intended for Mr Huber s father a glass manufacturer with an impressive collection of sports and racing cars the I.W.R. Lotus Elan GT was again styled by Walker himself and wrought in Williams & Pritchard s Edmonton workshops. A pure road car the two-seater nevertheless incorporated lessons learnt from its competition siblings such as a reinforced front bulkhead rear anti-roll bar oil radiator twin brake servos and sliding spline driveshafts etc. The earliest of two one-eighth scale blueprints on file (dated 21st October 1964) indicates that the car was initially conceived with a single cowled headlamp per side while the final version shows the GT s distinctive quad headlamp 1965 IWR LOTUS ELAN GT ESTIMATE 50 000 70 000 58 visage. Speaking to writer Philip Porter for an article which appeared in the October 1987 issue of Classic & Sportscar magazine Ian Walker recalled the reason for his creation s Ferrari 330GT 2 2 Gordon Keeble-esque headlamp tilt was that I originally wanted them level but with twin headlights on full lock the wheel on the full bump would have first fouled the rear of the headlamp . Finished in Huber Senior s preferred shade of French Blue the I.W.R. Lotus Elan GT was trimmed by coachbuilder Harold Radford using Red Connolly leather and sported bespoke Walker Elan badging. Featured in the November 1965 issue of Road & Track magazine chassis IWR GT 2 has since graced the pages of Classic & Sportscar (October 1987 July 2012) Motor Sport (February 2010) Club Lotus News (July 2012) Historic Lotus No. 56 (Spring 2009) Julian Balme s authoritative book Ian Walker Racing The Man and His Cars and hopefully Octane 59 (as part of an upcoming feature piece). Remaining part of the Huber family collection for thirty-seven years and retaining the IWR Elan number plates and wooden-boxed spares kit which they had made for it this unique Lotus was repatriated by Stewart Couch of Stockbridge at an indicated 69 000km (42 800 miles). Entering the current ownership via Paul Matty some three years ago the GT has since benefited from a bottom-end engine overhaul (re-ground crankshaft new bearings pistons) plus attention to its clutch suspension and carburettors etc. Pleasingly retaining its original twin-cam powerplant not to mention almost all its original French Blue paintwork and Red Connolly leather upholstery the two-seater is a true timewarp. Known to have had Colin Chapman s approval he viewed its track-orientated sister car as unwanted competition for the 26R but insisted on inspecting the roadgoing GT before it departed for Switzerland this compelling Elan occupies a unique place in Lotus history. A truly coachbuilt car from a time when the art was all but disappearing in the UK its odometer now shows a highly credible 70 300km (43 860 miles). Offered for sale with UK V5C Registration Document (which erroneously dates it to 1966) Ian Walker correspondence blueprints original workshop manual and history file. 1998 SOUTHERN ROADCRAFT 427 COBRA EVOCATION REG NO CHASSIS JJH783N SABTVRO3688142335 59 ESTIMATE 14 000 16 000 amount of restoration and general maintenance work was carried out on the car by Classic Restorations (Scotland) Ltd. The vendor notes that the Rover V8 engine is fed by an Edelbrock carburettor and that the most recent updates to the specification were the new springs and dampers fitted in 2012. The car is being offered complete with roll over bar full-harness seat belts wood-rim steering wheel wind deflectors and a large collection of invoices and old MOTs. The muscular 427 Cobra is an automotive icon of timeless appeal that continues to attract the attention of young and old alike. Finished in Metallic Blue complemented by a pair of broad centrallyplaced White stripes and trimmed in blue-piped Cream leather the right-hand drive evocation on offer is certainly guaranteed to turn heads and ears too no doubt thanks to its beefy side-mounted exhausts.

The vendor currently considers the bodywork paintwork interior trim four-cylinder engine and transmission to all be in fair condition and is offering the charming little AC complete with continuation log book and V5C. 60 The AC Owners Club are only aware of 41 Royals remaining in existence making it a relatively rare model by any standards. This delightful 12hp example complete with dickie seat features Sand over Beige paintwork and Cream interior trim. The Royal is powered by a 1496cc Anzani engine that drives through a three-speed manual gearbox.

Carried out by TT Workshops on a protracted basis (2006-2011) but at a discounted rate ( 14 779.14) the latter encompassed the fitting of new bearings gaskets seals and piston rings etc not to mention a power steering overhaul. While more recently the 412 has had its air-conditioning re-gassed and benefited from four new Michelin TRX tyres at a cost of circa 2 000.

This extraordinary Escort offers amazing value for money and comes complete with MOT into April 2015. The MKI Ford Escort is on record as one of the greatest of all rally cars. Among its most impressive results was the victory of Flying Finn Hannu Mikkola on the London to Mexico Wold Cup event. Never slow to miss a marketing opportunity Ford used the result to create the now famous special edition Ford Escort Mexico that had its own production line at the company s Advanced Vehicle Operations (AVO) in Aveley Essex. The sale car is a genuine 1973 Mexico with pukka Type 49 bodyshell that was completely stripped restored and heavily upgraded in 2002. The result is a stunning looking car of apparently enthralling performance. The fast Ford is finished in Diamond White with Blue stripes and trimmed in Black cloth and has covered a mere 3 500 since all the work was completed. 63 1919 STANLEY 735B TOURER 65 ESTIMATE 50 000 60 000 REG NO CHASSIS BF 6381 19376 The Stanley Motor Carriage Company came about after twin brothers F.E. and F.O. Stanley sold their photographic business to Kodak. The siblings began making steam cars as early as 1897 and much development had taken place by the time this lefthand drive 735B left the Massachusetts factory in 1919. Original documents show it to have begun life in California and to be registered to a Tom Wade of Wilmington by 1929. George Read of Santa Ana became its keeper in 1957 who sold it to Nels Grofthold in 1963. By this stage it appears to have lost its original body and then disappeared from the radar altogether for some 30 years. Its saviour seems to have been Robin Downing of Dyfed Wales who purchased it in 1991 and imported it to the UK - a process that was supported in writing by the then Curator of the National Motor Museum Michael Ware. 64 The Tourer then passed to a family in the Midlands who sourced the correct type and age of replacement six-seater Touring body and embarked upon a comprehensive restoration. That was nearing completion when the project s driving force passed away causing the Steamer to remain untouched for a further decade. Happily another enthusiast acquired BF 6381 from a Cheffins sale in 2012 and completed the refurbishment which included rewiring and the installation of an all-new interior in Bentley Beluga Black button back leather plus a new hood hood frame oak battery box and windscreen. J.A. Glaze Ltd of Wolverhampton issued the Stanley with a Pressure Systems Certificate of test valid until 19 6 2022. Half the Pressure Test has been satisfactorily carried out but at the time of writing the 735B had not undergone the Steam Test but hopefully it will have by the sale date. The vendor currently classes the bodywork and paintwork as good and the twin-cylinder engine as OK . 1967 JAGUAR E-TYPE 4.2 ROADSTER ESTIMATE 55 000 65 000 REG NO CHASSIS 66 50 FUH 1E1752 at 133 453 miles) brake overhaul (2013) together with expenditure of 2 422 on chassis work in 2013 for which a detailed breakdown is on file. A number of other invoices are included in the car s accompanying history file totalling some 12 500 including those from GTC Engineering and Martin Robey together with a 1978 bill for an engine and gearbox overhaul. Finished in Old English White with red leather the vendor describes the car as being original without fancy modifications (the sensible addition of a Kenlowe fan excluded) with average bodywork good engine gearbox and electrics and average paint. Offered with Swansea V5 document MOT to 31st March 2015 history file containing aforementioned invoices and correspondence assorted expired MOTs photostat copy old-style logbook and a copy of The Complete Official Jaguar E comprising handbook and workshop manual (US edition 1970). With values of E-Types continuing to rise this represents the ideal opportunity to acquire an unmolested example with a rich patina that will respond to improvement. 65 Retaining the looks of the early cars but incorporating vast improvements to driveability and comfort it is not without reason the Series 1 4.2-litre range of E-Types are often regarded as the best of the breed. First registered on 24th May 1967 this remarkably original roadster has enjoyed just four owners the second acquiring it on Christmas eve 1976 ( 1695 invoice on file) when the indicated mileage was 90 600 before it passed to his son on 30th April 1991 with a recorded mileage of 118 945. The vendor purchased the car on 1st June 1995 at 121 669 miles and at the time of cataloguing the odometer now registers 135 114 miles.

Perhaps unsurprisingly the vendor who has owned the PA since 2008 currently views the bodywork paintwork interior trim 847cc engine and four-speed manual gearbox as all being in very good order and says it drives very well . He is offering the little MG complete with V5C tool kit and full weather equipment comprising hood side screens and tonneau cover. According to a copy of its factory card this delightful matching numbers PA was delivered new in the July of 1934. At that stage its Red bodywork was teamed with the same colour interior and Silver-coloured wire wheels. The car apparently underwent a restoration in 1995 1996 at which time the original engine was refurbished with a new cylinder block. The leather of the door cards and side panels was retained but the seats treated to fresh Tan-coloured hide.

The Lotus is being sold complete with its original log book V5C MOT to June 18 next year range of receipts and a full photographic record of the restoration. 66 The original Ron Hickman-penned Elan looks as fresh as when it burst onto the roads in 1962 and thanks to its lightweight stiff backbone chassis fully independent wishbone suspension and potent twin-cam powerplant will still show a clean pair of heels to many a far younger rival. The tidy-looking right-hand drive example on offer has had seven keepers to date. It was treated to a new chassis and body in 1999 since when it has reputedly covered as 1959 AUSTIN-HEALEY FROGEYE SPRITE REG NO CHASSIS T.B.A. AN5L37448 ESTIMATE 8 000 10 000 Few enthusiasts can resist a smile on seeing a Frogeye and this left-hand drive example is certainly guaranteed to attract attention.

The cheeky Sprite is finished in an eye-catching shade of Red and trimmed in the same colour. It is intended to be UK registered and MOT d by the time of the sale and the vendor s current view of the little Healey is that it has very nice bodywork paintwork and four speed gearbox that the interior trim is new and that the A series engine starts and runs very nicely . 1952 MG TD MK II REG NO CHASSIS T.B.A. 13090 ESTIMATE 16 000 18 000 The so-called MKII TD was a competition model introduced alongside the standard offering from late 1950 onwards. Its more highly-tuned engine with larger SU carburettors and 8.1 1 compression ratio resulted in an output of 57bhp at 5 500rpm. The upgrades also included twin fuel pumps additional Andrex dampers all round and a higher axle ratio. Most of the 1 710 produced were exported including the left-hand drive sale car that started life in the 67 70 USA. It was following its repatriation in 2010 that this apparently very original MG was resprayed and fitted with a host of new parts including tyres hub seals wiring loom bumpers mohair hood side screens carpets and door cards and indicator control box. The brakes were overhauled too and the vendor now considers the car to have very solid chassis and bodywork and nice two-pack Green paint and informs us that the TD runs and drives very well . c.1937 DAIMLER 15HP TOURER REG NO CHASSIS Un-Reg 43901 71 ESTIMATE 8 000 12 000 transmission. Riding on all-round semi-elliptic leafsprung suspension the tourer also boasts four-wheel drum brakes and a full-length tonneau. Sadly the project s completion coincided with the vendor having his driving licence suspended due to failing eyesight. As such he has had little impetus to get the Daimler s original registration number - BTE 73 - reinstated by the DVLA. Offered for sale without documentation and in need of recommissioning this handsome four-seater tourer is nonetheless worthy of inspection. Acquired by the vendor as a kit of parts within the last decade or so this Daimler is believed but not warranted to date from 1937. Having undertaken the 15hp s mechanical reassembly and rewiring himself the seller entrusted its re-bodying to a local hobbyist coachbuilder. Finished in Blue over Black with Blue vinyl upholstery the resultant two-door tourer coachwork has been nicely crafted.

Understood to have covered around 57 000 miles this apparently very original MG has remained in the same ownership since 1981 where it has been reserved for special occasions and dry roads alone. It comes complete with old MOTs and tax discs and photographic evidence of the work carried out. 68 Good TFs are now highly sought after and PGY 349 certainly draws the eye. Resplendent in Red bodywork and Red leather trim it was treated to an apparently meticulous chassis-up body-off restoration by an engineer for his own use. The refurbished engine features reground crankshaft honed bores and a balanced cylinder head planed by Scholar Engines.

The grey leather interior was refreshed new grey carpet fitted and the chrome re-plated. Stored from the mid 1970s to the late 1980s accompanying MOTs show only c.300 miles were covered from 1978 to 1998. Now displaying some 31 692 miles we understand the engine was not overhauled at the time of work to the body and 73 the fuel gauge and clock are inoperative. A one family owner car for all but one year of its life the vendor advises a further c.2 600 miles have been covered since completion of the work and that invoices with the car total approximately 16 000. Accompanied by a buff logbook purchase invoice handbook restoration photographs assorted expired MOTs and Swansea V5. The last MOT expired in September 2013 and whilst the car is said to be in running order we understand further work may be required to renew its MoT. 1968 PORSCHE 912 REG NO CHASSIS FND513F 12808656 ESTIMATE 22 000 26 000 The 912 was Porsche s entry model for the 911 range and initially substantially outsold its sixcylinder sibling. Production ran from 1965 to 1969 during which in excess of 32 000 were manufactured. The vast majority were Coupes but around 2 500 were made in Targa guise. Enthusiastic 912 customers included the German autobahn police. This tidy-looking left-hand drive example features Red bodywork that s teamed with a Tan-coloured interior. The vendor has owned it for 69 74 some years and retained it specifically for use at his Florida home. However he has recently decided to revise his car collection and the Porsche has become surplus to requirements. It is currently displaying an unwarranted 63 000 miles and is regarded by the vendor as having very good bodywork paintwork interior trim four-cylinder engine and four-speed manual gearbox. It represents a rare opportunity to acquire an apparently very original classic Porsche that s dwelt in a rust-free environment. 1938 LAGONDA V12 SPORTS SALOON 75 ESTIMATE 60 000 70 000 REG NO CHASSIS The ex-Dick Watney Lagonda Motors GVU 675 14105 It is a new-born car unrelated to any yet on the road - here or on the Continent. Such is the 12-cylinder Lagonda - a car destined to rank from now on among the greater names in motoring history . (Lagonda Press Release August 1937) Debuting in prototype guise at the October 1936 Olympia Motor Show the Lagonda V12 was engineered by a crack team of ex-Rolls-Royce employees including W.O. Bentley Stuart Tresillian and Charles Sewell. A clean sheet design that aimed to marry limousine refinement to sports car performance it was based around a substantial cruciform-braced box-section chassis. Singularly advanced the model s aero-engine inspired 70 60-degree V12 featured overhead camshafts (one per bank) twin SU carburettors a combined duplexchain gear-driven timing system and Lanchestertype vibration damper. Displacing 4480cc the unit was quoted as developing 180hp 5 500rpm. The provision of a centre-change four-speed manual gearbox (with synchromesh on the top three ratios) and conventional pedal layout made it surprisingly easy to drive. Of the 200 or so Lagonda V12s produced between 1938 and 1940 a mere 100 are thought to have survived to the present day. According to Club records 14105 was first delivered to Dick Watney then MD of Lagonda Motors and registered on 24th October 1939. After WW2 it was rebuilt by the factory and sold as a new car in June 1946 to F C Price of Hanover Gate Mansions London. Subsequent owners include those in Ireland Australia and Jersey from where the car was recently repatriated. Now reunited with its registration GVU 675 the car is described as being in good condition regarding its bodywork paintwork engine transmission and interior and is offered with current MOT to November 2014. 2003 ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM ESTIMATE 60 000 65 000 REG NO CHASSIS 76 FNH 211 SCA1568014UH00012 Finished most attractively in Royal Blue with cream leather combined with blue carpets and over-rugs FNH 211 was first registered on 7th August 2003 since when it has covered an indicated 38 500 miles. It was last serviced in July 2014 by Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialists N Sandell of Isleworth at 38 346 miles and an accompanying invoice details the work carried out (which included the fitment of new rear brake pads) at a total cost of 4 323.73. According to the current MOT certificate expiring on 1st July 2015 the car has averaged just 2 500 miles per annum since 2010. Offered with Swansea V5 document aforementioned MOT owner s manual and short instructions booklet the car is only being offered for sale due to the vendor spending more time abroad. Exuding craftsmanship tradition comfort and prestige the Rolls-Royce Phantom is widely considered to be the very pinnacle of luxury motoring. Unveiled in 2003 the Phantom was the first all new model produced by BMW following its acquisition of Rolls-Royce in 1998. Powered by a V12 engine displacing 6.75 litres and featuring an aluminium space frame supporting panels of aluminium and composites the Phantom combines Teutonic engineering with traditional British craftsmanship resulting in a luxurious package that has once more restored the brand to the highest levels of indulgence for those lucky enough to slip into the car s cosseting interior. 71 1948 JAGUAR MK IV 3.5 LITRE DROPHEAD COUPE 77 ESTIMATE 100 000 130 000 REG NO CHASSIS Chassis 001 and sold new by Max Hoffman LFO 431 617001 Following an emergency wartime board meeting in March 1945 William Lyons SS Jaguar concern jettisoned its prefix initials and their unwanted Nazi connotations. When peace came some six months later the newly renamed Jaguar Cars - like most British motor manufacturers - felt constrained by the government s export or die drive to put various of its pre-September 1939 models back into production (albeit with some minor improvements). Luckily for the Coventry firm this entailed trying to sell a line-up of 1.5 litre four-cylinder and 2.5 3.5 litre six-cylinder cars which still enjoyed an enviable reputation for strong performance good road manners and well appointed interiors. Top of what was retrospectively known as the MKIV range the decidedly voluptuous 3.5 Litre Drophead Coupe boasted an ingenious threeposition hood that gave occupants the choice of open 72 closed or coupe de ville motoring. A full five-seater its underslung box-section chassis incorporated all-round semi-elliptic leaf-sprung suspension lever-arm dampers Burman worm-and-nut steering and Girling mechanical drum brakes. Credited with developing some 125bhp and 184lbft the flagship model s 3485cc OHV straight-six engine was allied to four-speed manual transmission and promised 95mph plus performance. Utilising the same all-steel body construction as its late 1930s SS Jaguar forebear the newcomer appeared even more svelte thanks to a revised hypoid bevel back axle that allowed the floor to be lowered by two inches. Only spanning a seven-month period (February - September 1948) total right-hand drive MKIV 3.5 Litre Drophead Coupe production is thought to have amounted to just 184 cars - making it among the rarest of all Jaguar s postWW2 production models. An historic car chassis 617001 has the distinction of being the very first right-hand drive MKIV 3.5 Litre Drophead Coupe built.

An unabashed aesthete who was doubtless taken with the Jaguar s wonderfully elegant styling he seems to have had no qualms about taking delivery of a right-hand drive car in a left-hand drive market. Although an accompanying service manual suggests that it belonged to Chas A. Mitchell of Washington DC by August 28th 1949 little else is known about the Drophead Coupe s sojourn in America. Still retaining its original engine and coachwork when repatriated by restorer A.B. Price during 1995 the MKIV was subsequently fettled and MOT tested before being sold to William King of Milton Keynes. An active Jaguar Drivers Club member Mr King commissioned marque specialist Davenport Cars to bring chassis 617001 up to concours standard. Awarded the Best SS Trophy at the 1997 and 1998 73 JDC National Day the five-seater was also chosen as the car that the Chairman of Jaguar would most like to take home after completing the JDC Rally. Liveried in Sage Green with Tan leather upholstery the MKIV was sold by Mr King to Tony Hansford of King s Lynn during 2001. Acquired from the latter by the vendor some four years later the Jaguar was entrusted to Davenport Cars again in 2006 with instructions that it be repainted and retrimmed in line with its original build specification. As well as extensive bodywork repairs the refurbishment saw attention paid to the rear axle brakes wiring and instrumentation etc. While more recent work has included the installation of both a five-speed manual gearbox to improve high speed cruising on rallies tours (winter 2008 spring 2009) and a more powerful but correct-type 3.5 Litre engine complete with performance camshaft and steel conrods etc (winter 2010 spring 2011). However the original factory-fitted engine and a four-speed manual gearbox have been kept should a later custodian wish to instate them. A unique part of Jaguar s illustrious heritage chassis 617001 would make a fine addition to any collection and is offered for sale with JDHT Certificate period literature (instruction book service manual spare parts catalogue) numerous Davenport Cars invoices sundry old MOTs copy brochure and DVLA ownership trace etc. 1954 CHEVROLET 3100 PICKUP TRUCK REG NO CHASSIS 542 UXK H541011560 78 ESTIMATE 20 000 25 000 stall torque convertor and B&M shifter. The truck s brake lines are all copper or braided and the brakes themselves comprise 11in vented discs up front and standard Camaro drums at the rear. The pickup rides on American Racing Torque Thrust wheels with polished rims and its numerous accessories include Painless wiring kit radio cassette CD player and stainless steel bonnet trim and the vehicle has been re-assembled with stainless steel nuts and bolts throughout. This stunning and rare (the exact model was only made for one year) pickup that s finished in eyecatching orange and trimmed in Black apparently retains its original steel body and floors and has never seen a welding torch. Its many modifications include a Chrysler Cordoba front clip 10-bolt Chevy rear axle and Airride rear dampers. The Chevy s lightened balanced 6.3-litre (383ci) engine has been dynoed at a purposeful 521bhp and is coupled to a refurbished 700R4 automatic transmission with high 1968 MERCEDES-BENZ 280 SL REG NO CHASSIS FND408F HJ04412006104 79 ESTIMATE 40 000 45 000 transmission SL was imported into the UK from Japan in March 2014 and UK registered on arrival.

Currently registering some 67 000 miles on its odometer this handsome Pagoda is offered with Swansea V5 document current MOT certificate to 26th March 2015 and factory hard top. 74 Last of the W113 line the 280SL was launched in 1968. Blessed with the same effortlessly elegant Paul Bracq styling as its earlier siblings it was powered by a new seven-bearing crankshaft 2781cc straightsix engine that developed some 180bhp and 193lbft of torque. Equipped with all round independent suspension and ATE disc brakes its square track gave notably sure-footed handling.

It had the bodywork done correctly no corners were cut the car has brand new wheels and has just had a major service (waterpump belts oils etc.) using nearly all genuine Porsche parts or their OEM supplier. I have had a Martini interior replicated from the 70s 924 Martini as my intention wasn t to make a replica. but my twist on what they could 80 have done . The subject of a good quality respray in Grand Prix white with red and black cloth vinyl interior it is described as having very good bodywork paintwork engine transmission and interior. Offered with Swansea V5 and MOT to July 2015 we understand the indicated mileage of c.37 578 miles differs from previous years on the MOT record due to replacement clocks being fitted and that a good condition replacement unpainted nose panel will be in place for the sale. 1956 JAGUAR MK I REG NO CHASSIS VPT 334 S904171 ESTIMATE 15 000 18 000 The increase in capacity prompted by Jaguar s move to Browns Lane in 1951 allowed the company to consider attacking the market for mid-sized saloons then dominated by Rover Humber and Standard. The resulting weapon the MKI was the firm s first unitary construction model and brought a new level of style and performance to the sector resulting in immediate success - 37 397 examples were made between 1955 and 1959. VPT 334 has clearly benefited from 75 81 restoration at some stage and is presented in Dark Blue teamed with Blue interior trim. The original 2.4-litre XK engine has at some stage been supplanted by a 3.4-litre one. The vendor acquired the Jaguar in July 2013 and currently classes the bodywork paintwork and sixcylinder engine as excellent and the interior trim and four-speed manual gearbox as good . This tidy-looking MKI is being sold complete with full length sunroof and period wing mirrors and Lucas auxiliary lights. 1992 LAND ROVER 90 DEFENDER REG NO CHASSIS J679FMB SALLDVAF7JA910876 82 ESTIMATE 12 000 14 000 a whole raft of specialist suppliers and driven by the knowledge that the current model whose roots can so evidently be traced back to the Series One Land Rover of 1948 is being discontinued next year. Suddenly enthusiasts are spending anything up to 150 000 on customising new ones and as in this case restoring and modifying existing ones. Never has a pimped up Defender been such cool transport for young and old drivers alike what must the farmers be thinking This serious-looking right-hand drive short wheelbase Defender has been restored and modified around a galvanised chassis. It is finished in Grey and trimmed in Black vinyl and sports a host of custom aftermarket parts that at a quick glance include front bumper radiator grille side-steps oversize tinted rear windows snorkel rear lights and extra-wide arches over extra-wide wheels tyres.

Described as being in virtually showroom condition we understand the original wheels and tyres will accompany the car. Offered with Swansea V5 document this highly collectable example is only reluctantly being offered to the market and is expected to possess a fresh MoT by the time of sale. 76 This 5.3-litre Celebration Model number 038 of 100 made by JaguarSport to commemorate their success at Le Mans was purchased by the vendor in October 1988 when it was one week old having previously been registered as a demonstrator to the supplying dealership. Finished in grey with cream interior this genuine low mileage example has been garaged throughout its life and has been in bubble-wrapped storage for a number of years. Serviced by Jaguar 1968 LOTUS SUPER SEVEN S2 REG NO CHASSIS UMT848F SB2240 ESTIMATE 25 000 30 000 Automotive genius though he was one imagines that the late Colin Chapman would be rather surprised that the Lotus Seven he launched at the 1957 Earls Court Motor Show and then sold the manufacturing rights for in 1973 was still being built bought raced and enjoyed the world over courtesy of Caterham. The sale car is a genuine Hethel-built Lotus - one of the last of the Super Seven S2s that in fact includes some S3 features. It comes complete with extensive 84 history and is apparently well-known to the Lotus Seven registers. It is powered by what is believed to be its original 1500cc pre-crossflow Ford engine complete with exceptionally rare single 40DCOE Weber manifold and carburettor. Finished in a wellpresented mix of polished alloy and British Racing Green bodywork the little Lotus features equally smart Black interior trim that s thought to be original.

The brakes have been overhauled and the 77 85 Mini now rides on early Cooper-style steel wheels. The vendor acquired the car in 2010 and believes the indicated mileage of 32 000 to be correct. He considers the bodywork paintwork interior trim engine and transmission to all be in excellent order and is offering the car complete with a large collection of invoices for the many new parts numerous old MOTs plus one valid into September of next year and photos covering the Mini s 18 month-long restoration process.

Benefiting from the same improved Allard coil-sprung divided front axle damped via tubular shock absorbers as the J2 and P1 models not to mention a more sophisticated Phase 2 Lockheed braking system the newcomer was propelled by a choice of Ford 3.6 litre or Mercury 3.9 litre Flathead V8 engines mated to three-speed manual transmission. Only in production until 1952 just 119 K2s are thought to have been made. Finished in Pacific Green metallic with Black leather upholstery this particular lefthand drive example chassis 2029 - is listed in Tom Lush s book Allard The Inside Story as being the only Allard car ever delivered new to Holland (Lush was Sydney Allard s navigator co-driver and 80 competitions manager). Reputedly ordered with competition in mind its specification includes a Mercury V8 engine De Dion back axle Alfin-type brake drums and twin front wing-mounted spare wheels. Advertised for sale as a Racewagen by its previous keeper A.M. Boomkens of Den Haag the K2 has formed part of Dick Van Dijk s private museum collection for the past thirty years. The subject of considerable restoration work by Solent Engineering and Rod Jolley during the mid 1990s the Roadster received attention to its engine gearbox bodywork paintwork interior trim wheels and wiring etc. Nicely detailed the twoseater cockpit plays host to a mixture of Cooper Stewart Allard (6 000rpm rev counter 160kph speedometer) and Smiths (fuel oil pressure ammeter water temperature) instruments as well as zip-up door pockets scuttle vents and a fly-off handbrake. Although not currently road registered the Allard s accompanying history file includes evidence of its previous Dutch number plate UT-66-54 as well as an instruction book pre-refurbishment photos numerous restoration invoices and sundry paperwork. 1957 CHEVROLET CORVETTE ESTIMATE 65 000 75 000 REG NO CHASSIS 87 EU-Reg E57S1O1734 style steering wheel carpeting exterior mirror rev-counter and electric clock. The options boasted by the sale car include auxiliary hardtop ( 200) contrasting colour for the sculptured flanks ( 18) courtesy lights ( 8) 4.6-litre 283ci (245hp) engine and push-button AM radio. The powerplant s EH suffix confirms that engine choice allied to a threespeed close-ratio manual transmission. Apparently 2 045 of the 6 339 Vettes manufactured in 1957 were fitted with this unit complete with alloy inlet manifold a pair of Carter WCFB four-barrel carburettors and finned Corvette scripted rocker covers. This Turbo Fire engine developed a claimed 245hp at 5 000rpm and 300lbft of torque at 3 800rpm. The extremely handsome Chevy offered is undoubtedly one of the most authentic we have encountered and is awash with period detailing. The paintwork is still highly presentable and the attractive upholstery and hood are totally tear-free. The total mileage is believed (but unwarranted) to be 78 883 and the car comes complete with faux spinner hubcaps and whitewall tyres plus a shortened steering column for the benefit of taller drivers. 81 This decidedly striking first generation (C1) Corvette sports Onyx Black and Silver paintwork teamed with a Black hood Black hardtop and Red vinyl upholstery. The presence of an NCRS (National Corvette Restorers Society) sticker suggests it was the subject of a previous refurbishment and it is certainly in good enough condition throughout to support that notion. The car has spent the last 30 years as a member of the Dick Van Dijk collection and he says it presents as well today as when his then eight year old son imported it For many the 1957 model year examples are the pick of the C1 cars as they are felt to be the ultimate expression of the twin (as opposed to quad) headlamp design.

However there are now various companies who can supply install a soft-top and associated framework if a new owner so desires. Mr Van Dijk apparently purchased the Benz on the understanding it had undergone some restoration work courtesy of Mercedes-Benz but it is unclear whether that reference related to the factory or a franchised dealer. A sticker affixed to one of the hardtop s windows indicates that the car was provided with a Dinol rust proofing treatment by Karosserie Helmut Struchholz of Duisberg. Another point of note is that unlike most Pagoda-topped Benz s this one appears to still possess its original inner front wings complete with ventilation holes. The spare wheel retains its original cover and the car comes complete with a tool roll containing various Mercedes-Benz branded spanners. The car is still White as per its factory body plate and sports contrasting Red interior trim. Our inspection found the Benz to start easily and run well and we certainly consider it to be more authentic than the majority of restored Pagodas we have encountered. This rare left-hand drive California Coupe has formed part of the Dick Van Dijk collection since December 1989 and though initially employed as a particularly memorable company car has spent the vast majority of the last 25 years on display in his private museum. A notably late W113 model production of the R107 Series cars began that year - it boasts power steering automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brakes and was delivered new to Friedrich Ebbrecht of Gottingen who retained it for 3.5 years. Title then passed to Johann Bruren Automobilverkaufer of Duisberg for a similar period. Karl Maehler also of Duisberg was the only other keeper before Mr Van Dijk and he kept it for over 11.5 years. Being a California Coupe it has a detachable hardtop and fold-down rear seat but no 82 1992 FERRARI 348 TB ESTIMATE 35 000 40 000 REG NO CHASSIS 89 J244WOB 2FFKA3SC000093466 1 of just 130 UK-supplied RHD UK cars Finished in Rosso Corsa with Light Tan leather interior this UK supplied RHD TB is described as having very good excellent bodywork and paintwork very good engine (power test results accompany the car) very good excellent transmission and excellent interior.

A number of invoices come with the car together with a copy history report covering the years 1997 - 2002 when it was cared for by Stratstone Ferrari.

Cradled by a separate sub-frame its quad-cam 32-valve 3405cc V8 was longitudinally-mounted and drove the rear wheels via a transverse five-speed manual gearbox. Developing some 300bhp and 238lbft of torque the 348 had need of its all-round coil-over wishbone independent suspension ventilated ABS disc brakes self-locking ZF differential and rack-and-pinion steering. 1954 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER DAWN 1 of 9 bodied to this design by James Young REG NO CHASSIS OUC 779 50G100 90 ESTIMATE 50 000 60 000 Rolls for a year in the 1970s before selling it to a Mr Dille - the last keeper retained it for 20 years.

The vendor informs us that the car is being offered complete with hundreds of items of paperwork relating to the many new standard and upgrade items 92 that have been purchased over the years. He also tells us that KND 145N is one of only 17 examples of the model that were built with an electric sunroof. He considers the Porsche s bodywork paintwork interior trim and boxer engine to be excellent and the car s five-speed manual transmission and electrical equipment to be very good . He is now selling it complete with the aforementioned items of paperwork plus an MOT valid to February 11 2015. 2000 BENTLEY ARNAGE RED LABEL REG NO CHASSIS V245RYG SCBLC32E6YCH04377 ESTIMATE 18 000 22 000 The Arnage was introduced in 1998 and was the first new model for the marque for nearly 20 years. The Red Label derivative followed in October 1999 and was powered by an updated version of the company s venerable 6.75-litre V8 engine that boasted a stunning 616 lb ft of torque. The Arnage on offer is a home market Red Label example that s finished in a fetching shade of Deep Blue and trimmed in Barley-coloured hide. It has been 85 93 in its current ownership for ten years and the V5C confirms a total of three former keepers. It features the expected luxuries of picnic tables parking sensors SAT NAV etc and is being sold with full service history (12 stamps) and an MOT to July 1 2015. The odometer currently registers a warranted 54 000 miles and the vendor grades the bodywork paintwork interior trim V8 engine and automatic gearbox as all being in very good order. 1991 ASTON MARTIN VIRAGE 94 ESTIMATE 60 000 80 000 REG NO CHASSIS One registered keeper & 992 miles from new H133HKN SCFCAM1S3MBR50219 This time warp Virage has driven just 992 miles from new and has had just one keeper throughout a well-known and titled businessman from the North East of England. H133 HKN was supplied new in 1991 by his local Aston Martin agent and immediately became part of the gentleman s private collection of cars that resides at what s been described as one of England s finest country houses. The right-hand drive automatic transmission car is finished in the radiant colour of Suffolk Red that s teamed with Red-piped Magnolia-coloured hide and Red carpets. As you would expect from what one must assume is the lowest mileage Virage in the world the Aston s condition is described by the vendor as being as close to new as is possible . It has just been recommissioned with a service 86 by an Aston Martin main dealer and is now being offered with all the original owners books complete and unused tool kit a first aid box that s still in its original packaging Aston factory touch up paint and even the car s original battery This extraordinary motor car is therefore now ready to make an invaluable contribution to a second car collection or provide an individual Aston Martin enthusiast with a unique claim to fame. A once-in-alifetime opportunity. Expectations were running high when the Virage was unveiled at the 1988 Birmingham motorshow and despite a hefty price tag orders flowed thick and fast. The chassis was designed in conjunction with the Cranfield Institute of Technology and clothed in hand-beaten aluminium to a design by John Heffernan and Ken Greenley while power came from an uprated version of Tadek Marek s immortal all-alloy 5 340cc V8 unit. Some 365 Virages were crafted between 1989 and 1995 at which point the car was reshaped with styling cues from the more powerful Vantage and redubbed V8 Coupe . 1967 MERCEDES-BENZ 250 SL ESTIMATE 50 000 60 000 REG NO CHASSIS 95 XMB824E 1130432202441 Royce.

This stunning-looking SL is finished in Tunis Beige Metallic and trimmed in Black. Its factory-fitted extras include automatic transmission power-assisted steering Sundym tinted glass allround (a notably rare option) and a Motorola pushbutton radio. A possibly unrepeatable opportunity. The 250SL was introduced at the 1967 Geneva Salon. Blessed with the same effortlessly elegant Paul Bracq styling as its earlier relation it was powered by a new seven bearing crankshaft 2 496cc SOHC straight-six engine that developed some 150bhp and 159 lb ft of torque sufficient output to endow the Mercedes with a 0-60mph time of a whisker under 11 seconds and a top speed just north of 120mph. Faster than the 230SL which preceded it yet more agile than its 280SL successor the 250SL remained in production for just a single year accounting for 5 196 sales worldwide most of which went to the USA. The vendor of 250SL XMB 824E believes it could be the finest example of its type in the world and one can understand his thinking. For starters it is rare for not only were there less 250SLs made than either 230s or 280s but this one is a California Coupe and therefore of 2 2 configuration. Secondly it has remained in the same family ownership for the last 35 years. And thirdly it has just been treated to a major restoration of notably high quality.

The odometer displays an unwarranted 18 125 miles. Some 2 000 NG cars have reputedly been sold since 1979. Hand built in the traditional vein around a bespoke ladder chassis they employ MG running gear and are generally powered by either MGB engines or the venerable all-alloy Rover V8 which is in fact quite a bit lighter than the cast iron MG unit as well as being more powerful of course. There was the option of having them factory built or acquiring them in kit form.

It is now being sold complete with both hard and soft 98 tops the original owners book pack (ie handbooks service book etc) and a collection of old MOT certificates and invoices. The latter include a 2008 one from main dealer Hughes of Aylesbury when the car had covered 35 679 miles - it totals a not insubstantial 3 095.14 and reflects a considerable level of attention to the brakes suspension and exhaust system as well as general servicing. 1972 FORD MUSTANG REG NO CHASSIS STK310T 2F01F186167 ESTIMATE 8 000 12 000 Acquired by the vendor five years ago this smart lefthand drive example has been the subject of much work including an overhaul of the three-speed automatic gearbox attention to the paintwork rechroming of the bumpers radiator refurbishment and numerous other trim parts including grille mirrors and tail light panel.

Donald Healey s eponymous company built a prototype two-seater sports car for display at the 1952 London Motor Show. It was dubbed the Healey Hundred and subject to a suitably encouraging response Healey planned to build production versions at his Warwick factory. As things transpired the Ice Blue prototype not only impressed the public but so excited Austin s Managing Director Leonard Lord that he decided to build the car in volume at Longbridge. The newcomer was renamed the Austin Healey 100. The rest is history. The Big Healey enjoyed steady development with the four-cylinder cars giving way to the 100-Six of 1956 which was replaced by the first of the 3000s in 1959. The final iteration was the 3000 MKIII which was launched in October 1963 and mildly upgraded (Phase 2) in May the following year. The most powerful and luxurious of all the derivatives it had lively performance courtesy of its 150bhp straightsix engine and featured such niceties as wind up windows and a walnut-veneer facia. 3000 production closed at the end of 1967 after 42 926 had been made 17 712 of which were MKIIIs. 90 1965 JAGUAR E-TYPE SERIES 1 4.2 ROADSTER ESTIMATE 75 000 85 000 REG NO CHASSIS 101 DYN 799C 1E 1108 The E-Type or XK-E as it was known in the USA made its debut at the 1961 Geneva Salon. The original 3.8-litre straight-six engine allowing a 0-60mph time of some seven seconds and a top speed of circa 150mph. In October 1964 the unit s size was increased from 3.8 to 4.2-litres and with the change came a sweeter all-synchromesh gearbox better brakes and electrical systems and more comfortable seats. According to its accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate chassis 1E 1108 was despatched from Browns Lane on February 9th 1965 and supplied new via Henlys of London to a John Langham. A desirable original right hand drive Series 1 Roadster fitted with the preferred 4235cc straight-six DOHC engine and four-speed all-synchromesh gearbox the car has been the subject of much restoration work including all new suspension brightwork and interior some of which was undertaken by Broomstick Cars of Leighton Buzzard (c. 13 000 spent) and Chiltern Jaguar who finished the work after acquiring the restored shell in 2010. Originally finished in Opalescent Silver Grey 91 with red leather interior the car is now painted in red with black leather and offered with Swansea V5 document MoT to September 2014 and assorted invoices. Riding on chrome wire wheels research suggests the engine number currently fitted (7E 54144-9) is a correct specification but later unit. The vendor further advises the engine shows correct oil pressure and perfect gear change. 1958 ASTON MARTIN DB MK III SALOON 102 ESTIMATE 250 000 300 000 REG NO CHASSIS 520 UYF AM300 3 1963 To most eyes the DB MKIII was the best looking of the DB2 line - it also represented the final development of the Claude Hill chassis first seen on the Atom prototype. The most obvious change from the DB2 4 MKII was the DB3S style radiator grille the evocative shape of which was echoed inside the car by the equally new instrument binnacle. During its brief production run of two years the DB MKIII became the first Aston Martin to be equipped with disc brakes while a hydraulically-operated clutch and optional Laycock de Normanville overdrive were other welcome developments. Suitably reworked by the company s Polish engine wizard Tadek Marek the engine in standard form (DBA) was equipped with twin SU carburettors and produced 162bhp. There were other options however and some 10 cars were reputedly sold with the DBB variant that 92 boasted triple twin-choke Weber carburettors performance camshafts high compression pistons and a dual exhaust system and delivered an impressive 195bhp. There were three body options namely Two-Door Saloon Fixed Coupe and Drophead Coupe which between them accounted for a production total of 551 cars. The model also found fame as the transport of choice for the world s most famous secret agent in Goldeneye. Yes it was a DB5 Bond drove in the film but a DB MKIII in the book on which it was based though it was incorrectly referred to as a DBIII . According to a copy of the chassis records the sale car was first registered to Hardman s Ltd of Bolton Lancashire and designated the number WUK 333 . It was finished in Peony and trimmed in Connolly hide VM8500. It came with the aforementioned Girling disc brakes at the front and Alfin drums on the rear had Armstrong dampers and rode on Avon Turbospeed tyres. Maintenance records for the first two and half years show attention to the trailing links and replacement of the brake booster overdrive unit and cylinder head. 1958 ASTON MARTIN DB MK III SALOON ESTIMATE 250 000 300 000 The most recent keeper purchased the Aston (nowadays wearing the registration 520 UYF ) in 2000 since when it has been completely restored for fast road use and participation in AMOC club events and in recent years has been victorious in the club s historic championship. Last year it was campaigned in the Fordwater Trophy at the prestigious Goodwood Revival meeting and achieved a class win in the AMOC autumn concours event at Broughton Castle - as a good a clue as any to the extremely impressive condition of this car. Its Saloon body is resplendent in Tourmaline Blue and the interior finished in quality Black hide and Black Wilton carpet. It is equipped with the desirable overdrive gearbox while the engine has been built to above DBB specification by Chris Adams of Four Ashes Garage and features a balanced steel crankshaft Carrillo connecting rods and aluminium cylinder head fed by a trio of Weber carburettors. Although set up for club racing it is understood to be totally tractable on the road and therefore ideal for classic rallies and continental tours. A notably fine example of a most sought after model. 102 93 1991 MERCEDES-BENZ 300 SL REG NO CHASSIS 29 000 miles from new J569NLU WDB1290612F038497 103 ESTIMATE 7 500 8 500 Finished in Silver with Blue upholstery this particular RHD example began life in Jersey where records show that it was maintained for several years by marque specialist Jacksons Garage Ltd.

Finished in two-tone Blue with a Magnoliacoloured hide interior and benefiting from rear head restraints foot stools and picnic tables this imposing Rolls-Royce is said by the vendor to be in good all round condition and is being supplied complete with a Swansea V5C and current MOT. 94 1998 BMW Z3M REG NO CHASSIS R879MNR WBSCK92090LB06286 This relatively rare Estoril Blue Z3M Roadster has been fully maintained by BMW main dealers and specialists.

The V8-powered 500SL variant was the cream of the crop and with 240bhp on tap was a genuine 135mph car with ample reserves of effortless acceleration. The righthand drive example offered is resplendent in Cream and trimmed in Tan leather cloth. The vendor currently classes the bodywork paintwork V8 engine and automatic transmission as good and the interior trim as very good . The odometer displays an unwarranted 80 079 miles.

ESTIMATE 6 000 8 000 95 108 1955 FORD THUNDERBIRD 109 ESTIMATE 30 000 35 000 REG NO CHASSIS CSJ895 P5FH199717 This left-hand drive T bird hails from 1955 and was exported from New Jersey in April of that year. A one owner vehicle from 1997 until recently it is presented in Fiesta Red with Red and White trim and a White hood. It comes equipped with a raft of 1956 extras that are too many to fully list but include rear Continental pack hard top with side portholes and tinted Sundym glass overdrive gearbox tinted glass all-round electric windows electric seats heater Town & Country radio chrome wire wheel trims etc. We are informed that the Ford has been the subject of restoration to exceptional standards which included a considerable amount of chroming of the suspension the differential etc and almost all the engine bay the attention to detail has to be seen to be believed. 96 The car is powered by a 5.1-litre (312ci) V8 from the Ford stable that drives through a three-speed manual transmission. Then vendor says the car is in lovely overall condition and drives exceptionally well . Fresh from a service it is now being sold complete with all the correct tools handbooks workshop manuals and parts books. A great opportunity for T bird aficionados everywhere. By the time Ford dispensed (at least temporarily) with the Thunderbird moniker in 2005 the model had progressed through no less than 11 generations the combined production total of which was in excess of 4.4 million. It had also been immortalised by the Beach Boys hit song Fun Fun Fun. The first generation car hit the streets in October 1954 and while it was created in direct response to Chevrolet s Corvette Ford s emphasis was more on comfort than overt sportiness. The Thunderbird sold exceptionally well in its first year and proceeded to outstrip the Corvette by more than 23-to-one for 1955 with 16 155 Thunderbirds sold against 700 Corvettes. 1974 JAGUAR E-TYPE V12 ROADSTER ESTIMATE 65 000 75 000 REG NO CHASSIS 110 RVG320M IS2536 torque on tap the Series III E-Type once again had 150mph in its sights. A revised wheelbase yielded better cabin space and together with wider tracks front and rear new anti-dive front suspension geometry and fatter tyres gave improved road holding. Imbued with a more muscular stance thanks to its flared wheelarches re-profiled wings and larger grille it also benefited from vented disc brakes and a restyled interior. Finished in blue with blue leather upholstery this particular manual example registers just 37 530 believed genuine miles at the time of cataloguing and is described by the vendor as being in good condition regarding its bodywork paintwork engine transmission and interior. Whilst in the current ownership it has benefited from reconditioned carburettors replacement hood ignition system upgrade replacement of all cooling hoses and replacement steering rack. Riding on chrome wire wheels it is offered for sale with Swansea V5 and MOT certificate valid until June 2015. By 1971 Jaguar s jaw-dropping E-Type had been in production for a decade. Despite continual improvements new emissions legislation in the allimportant American market threatened to strangle the big cat s performance. Jaguar responded by giving its revered sports car fresh claws in the shape of a 5343cc V12 developed from the stillborn XJ13 Le Mans project car. The new engine was both effortlessly powerful and eerily refined. The turbine-like smoothness with which the engine provides a sustained shove in the back is almost uncanny the more so when one accelerates hard in top gear without even a gearchange to interrupt one s headlong dash into the distance . (Autocar 5th July 1973) With some 272bhp and 304lbft of 97 1923 BENTLEY 3 LITRE TOURER 111 ESTIMATE 80 000 120 000 REG NO CHASSIS Current ownership since 1959 and matching chassis engine numbers PD 7014 340 It was not the means whereby the 3-Litre Bentley performed but the manner in which it did it that endeared the car to sportsmen who took pride in their driving. The engine was remarkably flexible strong and reliable the gear ratios admirably chosen the handling excellent and the quality unremittingly high. So also was the price but an ever-growing reputation augmented by striking racing victories - including the Le Mans 24 hours of 1924 and 1927 - ensured its success Classic Sports Cars by Cyril Posthumus and David Hodges by Park Ward. Supplied new to J.D. Botterell Esq of Browns Effingham Surrey on August 28th 1923 it returned to the Cricklewood Works some twelve months later to be fitted with front wheel brakes. Acquired by J. Stableford Esq of Upper Brook St London W1 after 7 000 miles or so in 1928 the Bentley is known to have subsequently belonged to A.B. Stenhouse Esq of Greencroft Gardens London NW6 John Washbourn Eyre Esq of Portland Place London W1 and Major W. Hamilton of Kingstonupon-Thames before migrating northwards and into the care of D. Edwards Esq D.H. Shaw Esq A.A. Beard Esq Captain Hill Edward Gibson Esq. and the vendor who spotted it for sale in the Manchester Evening News during 1959 Upgraded to somewhere near Speed Model specification with a new camshaft re-bored block (enlarged to 81mm) high compression pistons and twin SU carburettors in 1933-1934 the 3 Litre still retained its original albeit dilapidated - bodywork into the 1960s. Concerned at the condition of the wings and dickey seat compartment the present owner commissioned a Cheadle-based coachbuilder to extend the main Park Ward tub aft of the doors 98 One of just 765 Bentley 3 Litres to be built on the Long Standard wheelbase (10ft 10in) chassis 340 was bodied as an extravagant Two-Seater plus Dickey 1923 BENTLEY 3 LITRE TOURER ESTIMATE 80 000 120 000 111 but ahead of the bulkhead so as to create a FourSeater Tourer. He also had a revised windscreen and bespoke petrol tank installed together with simpler cycle wings and adjustable aeroscreens etc. New gears were fitted to the steering box in a successful attempt to reduce the effort involved in low-speed manoeuvres (though the originals accompany the car should a new owner wish to reinstate them) while previous keepers had seen fit to modify the dashboard chrome-plate various fittings uprate the headlamps and add Andre Hartford Telecontrol shock absorbers. Pleasingly retaining its original engine crankcase (number 341) and a proportion of its original Park Ward coachwork chassis 340 has not possessed a valid tax disc since 31st October 1995. Not driven for at least a decade due to the vendor s poor eyesight the Bentley will require careful recommissioning overhauling prior to road use. Seemingly complete the 3 Litre sports a red enamel radiator badge 99 Autovac fuel feed twin ML Type CG4 magnetos and two spare wheels. The number 340 is visible to the front chassis cross member and a dumb iron inner face while the steering box is numbered as 337 . Unfortunately the vendor has lost the Bentley s paperwork. However a new UK V5C Registration Document has been applied for (which will be forwarded to the new owner) and Alan Bodfish of the Bentley Drivers Club has provided copies of the 3 Litre s factory service record together with a black and white photo depicting it in 1956. Coming to market for the first time in fifty-five years this venerable Bentley 3 Litre has the makings of an exciting project and is offered for sale with what the vendor believes to be the support brackets for its original wings. 1935 ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM II TOURER 112 ESTIMATE 15 000 25 000 REG NO CHASSIS BLE 689 91TA Last of the truly grand six-cylinder Rolls-Royces and indeed the final one to be overseen from start to finish by F. Henry Royce himself the Phantom II was introduced at the October 1929 Olympia Motor Show. Powered by a 7668cc OHV straight-six engine allied to four-speed manual transmission just 1 394 were made from 1929-1935. According to its accompanying copy chassis cards chassis 91TA was taken off test on 28th January 1935. Originally fitted with Enclosed Limousine coachwork by Barker the Rolls-Royce was supplied new to Mrs H. Mappin (of the jewellers Mappin & Webb). Thereafter the Phantom II is known to have passed to Messrs W.A. Truelove & Son of Sutton Surrey in 1947 and R.D. Kemble MD of Oahu Hawaii some nineteen years later. Repatriated by marque specialist The Real Car Co during the late 1990s it entered the current ownership shortly thereafter as a rolling chassis. Capable of moving under its own power chassis 91TA was entrusted to restorer Trevor Farrington of Nantwich (now Allostock) with instructions that it be re-bodied as a Four-Seater Open Tourer. Finished in Black over Yellow with Black leather upholstery the resultant coachwork has Brewster-esque overtones. Understood to have had attention paid to its cylinder head and blocks in the past the original engine (number FJ15) is currently seized. It is not known whether the straight-six s immobility is due to stuck piston rings or something more sinister. The Rolls-Royce has not possessed a valid tax disc since 30th September 2002 and will require careful recommissioning overhauling prior to road use. Unfortunately the vendor has lost the Phantom II s paperwork. However a new UK V5C Registration Document has been applied for (which will be forwarded to the new owner) and the RREC have kindly provided some copy chassis cards. A potentially rewarding project chassis 91TA has the makings of a very elegant motorcar. 100 Celebrating the 21st Year of H&H Classics CHRISTMAS GALA DINNER Tuesday 2nd December 2014 Reception and Private Viewing of Auction Cars from 6pm Cocktails at 7pm Three-Course Dinner at 8pm GUEST SPEAKERS E.

Competition History and Vehicle Identity H&H 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 car of a single identity to have more than one chassis body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times both in a car s works career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes works cars were fitted with different registration plates so that a car 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.

A Reserve once placed by the Seller shall not be changed without the consent of the Auctioneer. 4.2 The Auctioneer may at its option sell the Lot at a Hammer Price below the Reserve but in any such case the Sale Proceeds to which the Seller is entitled shall be the same as if the sale had been at Reserve. 4.3 Where no Reserve has been placed on the Lot the Auctioneer shall in no way be liable should the Lot be purchased for a price below the lowest estimated selling price. In any event any written or oral estimate of likely selling price given by the Auctioneer is an expression of opinion only and may not be relied upon by the Seller nor give rise to any claim. 4.4 If a Reserve is placed by the Seller in a currency other than Pounds Sterling such a Reserve shall be calculated and converted into Sterling at the spot rate of exchange quoted to the Auctioneer by the National Westminster Bank Plc at close of business on the last banking day prior to the date of the Sale.

Should the Seller buy in his own Lot the Seller must pay to the Auctioneer its stated rates (both Seller and Buyer) before the Lot is removed. 5.1 The Seller may by notice to the Auctioneer withdraw the Lot from the Auction. If the Seller does so he shall be liable to pay the Auctioneer the stated rate of the Seller s and Buyer s commission calculated on the estimated value of the Lot that the Auctioneer would have received had the Lot been sold for the estimated value. For the purposes of this clause the estimated value shall be the higher of - 106 (a) the Seller s estimate of value as previously notified to the Auctioneer or if more than one figure the highest figure or if none (b) the value estimated in the catalogue or if more than one figure is given the highest figure or if none (c) the Auctioneer s reasonable estimate of its value (d) plus VAT on such fee in either case and expenses 5.2 In the event that the Seller withdraws the Lot from the Auction the Seller shall arrange for the collection removal of the Lot at his own expense within 2 working days after the date of withdrawal provided that the Seller may not collect the Lot unless or until any withdrawal fee payable under Conditions 5.1 shall have been paid in full and any storage charges have been met by the Seller. 6.

The Seller hereby agrees to indemnify the Auctioneer its Agents and Employees against any and all claims liability or damage and all related costs and expenses arising out of the proper execution by the Auctioneer of their obligations to the Seller under these Conditions and in particular against any liability or claim which may be incurred by the Auctioneer as a result of any defect in the Lot whether proving dangerous to human life or health or otherwise giving rise to a claim against the Auctioneer or as a result of any default by the Seller or any breach of any of the warranties or undertakings herein by the Seller. 9.1 Where any Lot fails to sell the Auctioneer shall notify the Seller accordingly. The Seller shall make arrangements either for the Auctioneer to re-offer that Lot for sale or forthwith to collect the Lot and to pay the Expenses. If such arrangements are not made (a) by 1pm on the day following the date of the Sale the Seller shall be responsible for the costs of any removal storage and other expenses related to that Lot (b) within 3 months after formal notification by the Auctioneer to the Seller the Auctioneer shall have the right (pursuant to the Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977 or any legislation that re-enacts or replaces it) to sell the Lot by private treaty or at public auction without reserve and to deduct from the Hammer Price or price received any sum owing to the Auctioneer including (without limitation) removal storage and insurance expenses the Expenses of both auctions Commission at the Stated Rate on the sale and all other reasonable expenses before remitting the balance to the Seller or if he cannot be traced placing it in a bank account in the name of the Auctioneer on behalf of the Seller. 9.2 If the Seller later sells the Lot as a result of its exposure at the auction the Auctioneer will be entitled to their normal commission. In any event the Auctioneer will be entitled to try and effect a sale as the Seller s agent within 14 days after the date of the auction (that time limit does not apply to a sale by the Seller). If the Auctioneer does so sell the Lot they will also be entitled to their normal commission. 10.1 Where a Lot is sold the Auctioneer shall initiate payment by bank transfer of the Sale Proceeds to the Seller 3 working days after the Auctioneers have received in cleared funds the Total Amount Due from the Buyer. Should no bank details be provided by the seller the Auctioneer will effect payment by sending its cheque drawn in favour of the Seller 8 working days after receipt of cleared funds by first class mail at the Seller s risk. 10.2 If before the Total Amount Due is paid by the Buyer (whether or not because the Auctioneer has given credit terms to the Buyer) the Auctioneer pays to the Seller an amount equal to the net Sale Proceeds title in the Lot shall pass from the Seller to the Auctioneer. 10.3 In the case of overseas Sellers the Sale Proceeds will be paid to the Seller either in Sterling or in such other currency available to the Auctioneer as may have been agreed in writing between the Seller and the Auctioneer before the date of the Sale. The Auctioneer shall calculate the rate of exchange for the Sale Proceeds by reference to the spot rate of exchange quoted by the National Westminster Bank Plc at close of business on the date of the Sale whichever is more favourable to the auctioneer. 10.4 If the Auctioneer receives notice of any dispute related to a sold Lot before the Sale Proceeds have been remitted to the Seller the Auctioneer may withhold payment from the Seller until it thinks fit or until the Dispute is resolved whichever is earlier. 10.5 The Auctioneer retains the right to withhold partial or total payment for any Lot if items committed to the Sale by the Seller and sold as part of the Lot including any relevant documents have not been delivered by the Seller. 10.6 The Seller shall maintain their insurance of the Lot until they are in receipt of the Sale Proceeds 11.1 If the Buyer fails to pay the Auctioneer the total Amount due within 21 days after the Sale the Auctioneer will notify the Seller and take the Seller s instructions as to the appropriate course of action. So far as in the Auctioneer s opinion it is practicable the Auctioneer will at the Seller s expense assist the Seller to recover the Total Amount Due from the Buyer but the Auctioneer shall be under no obligation to institute proceedings in its own name. 11.2 If circumstances outside the Auctioneer s control do not permit the Auctioneer to take instructions from the Seller the Seller hereby authorises the Auctioneer at the Seller s expense to agree special terms for payment of the total Amount Due to remove store and insure the Lot sold to settle claims made against the Buyer or the Seller on such terms as the Auctioneer shall in its absolute discretion think fit to take such steps as are necessary to collect the monies due by the Buyer to the Seller and if necessary to rescind the sale and refund money to the Buyer. CONDITIONS MAINLY CONCERNING THE BUYER 12.1 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. 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 107 Terms and conditions of business (continued) 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 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 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. After that period of time to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 1.75% 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. 18.3 To issue proceedings against the Buyer for payment of the total amount due and or for damages for breach of contract. 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. GENERAL CONDITIONS 20. 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 nonAuctioneer operatives during the Sale or any removable items left within lots during the same period.

Any notice by the Auctioneer to a Seller consignor prospective bidder or Buyer may be given by hand delivery by first class mail or by airmail or by fax or E-mail and if so given shall be deemed (unless shown to have been received earlier) to have been duly received by the addressee 36 hours after posting in the case of first class mail or airmail and 6 hours after transmission in the case of fax or email. In all cases it shall be sufficient for such notice to be delivered to the last known address of the recipient. 24. The copyright in all written matter and illustrations relating to Lots shall remain at all times the absolute property of the Auctioneer and any person wishing to use such materials or any part of them shall require the prior written consent of the Auctioneer. 25. If any Condition or part of a condition in these Terms shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable the validity or enforceability of the remaining Conditions will not thereby be affected. 26. These Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with English Law.
