Simon Hope is now Chairman and remains our chief auctioneer. I look forward to meeting you face-to-face at our future sales and events and to discuss your requirements. This sale at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford will be the first opportunity for a chat. Last year we became one of just five auction houses in the world to have sold a classic car for more than 10m providing the RNLI with the biggest bequest in their history. Our ability to market cars internationally is evident in our media coverage (providing millions of readers viewers for a variety of vehicles) and in the growing number of foreign buyers attending our sales. Interest in classic car and motorcycle collecting as a hobby has never been higher and now it is also seen as one of the most accepted classes of alternative investment. We would be happy to advise you on both of these aspects. In the past twelve months it has become evident that the market has softened. The financial crisis of 2008 triggered a period of sustained growth whereby the prices paid for many collector cars reached levels which astonished even those who had been involved in the industry for decades. The current readjustment is good news for the market s long term health and the best of the best examples are continuing to sell well at every price level. Our eight car and motorcycle sales a year at the Imperial War Museum Duxford Donington Park and Chateau Impney provide something for everyone with modestly priced vehicles right up to those valued in millions. Besides auctions H&H Classics also provides a private sale facility as well as valuations and storage. And we plan to add even more services both online and offline for the enthusiast in the future. We work hard to add value and enjoyment to every aspect of buying and selling collector cars and motorcycles. H&H is on the march. We now have a network of European and Middle Eastern agents who are consigning cars and bringing in new high net worth buyers to our sales. We have just announced a new partnership in Scotland with the leading auction house north of the border Lyon & Turnbull. In the remaining months of 2016 we will be holding events at a variety of interesting venues Buckingham Palace on October 15th to help celebrate HM The Queen s 90th birthday the Warren Golf Estate in Essex on September 25th and Auctions in Duxford Donington and Chateau Impney. Plans for 2017 are already fixed amongst others a Concours next May at a National Garden Scheme home to celebrate the 90th birthday of that organisation and an auction at the RAC s country estate Woodcote Park. I hope to see you at one or more of these venues.

Admission H&H has the right at its sole discretion without assigning any reason whatsoever to refuse admission to any of its sales or indeed its premises to any person. The purchase of a catalogue does not constitute an entry ticket or guarantee entry. Bidder Registration To enable the Auctioneer to recognise bidders during the sale all intending buyers are required to complete a Bidder s Registration Form. This will enable you to bid at the sale by means of a number allocated to you. All prospective bidders must complete the form giving full identification and appropriate references and produce identification which will take the form of a current UK driving licence or passport. All Lots sold will be invoiced to the registered bidder. If you lose your catalogue or bidder s number please notify reception immediately. References We reserve the right to request banker s references from prospective purchasers and these should be supplied in time to allow them to be taken up prior to the sale. Failure to comply with this could result in the facility to bid being withdrawn. Currency Converter Solely for the convenience of bidders a currency converter is provided at H&H sales. The rates quoted for conversion of other currencies to pounds sterling are indicative only and provided by our partner Currency Solutions. We will not be responsible for any errors inaccuracies or omissions in the currency converter. Currency Solutions bank beating rates could end up saving you up to 5% on the cost of your sale or acquisition. Additionally they can fix exchange rates on the hammer removing the risk of foreign exchange losses in the days after the auction. For further information please contact 44 (0) 207 740 0000. Insurance A representative of Footman James Insurance Services will be in attendance and will be pleased to advise buyers in this area. Please be reminded that the insurance is the buyer s responsibility from the fall of the hammer. Bidding Increments In the case of Commission Telephone and Live and On-line Internet bidding the following increments will apply. 1 000 - 2 000 100 2 000 - 5 000 200 300 500 5 000 - 10 000 10 000 - 20 000 1 000 20 000 - 50 000 2 000 3 000 50 000 - 100 000 5 000 Over 100 000 At the Auctioneers discretion Premium Purchasers are reminded that a Buyers Premium is payable on all lots and is subject to VAT at the prevailing rate. The rates are as follows Motor Cars 12% Registrations 12% Motorcycles 12% Bicycles 12% Automobilia 12% Warranty H&H is acting as the agent of the Seller in offering his lot for sale by auction. We cannot and do not inspect each lot in detail to verify the Seller s description - often we only see it shortly before the Sale. Therefore we cannot and do not take responsibility for the condition of the lot or the accuracy of its description. This is the reason for our very specific terms as to roadworthiness (Condition 19.1) and absence of warranties (Condition 12.1) which intending purchasers should read carefully. Commission Telephone Bids We will make reasonable efforts to execute commission and telephone bids when instructed provided they are received by 5pm the day before the Sale. Lot(s) will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and reserves. Where more than one commission bid is submitted at the same winning amount the commission bid submitted to the Auctioneer first will be the winning bid. We reserve the right to request a refundable deposit of approximately 10% of the intended bid amount. Payment For immediate clearance of Lot(s) full payment must be made to H&H Classics Limited by means of Banker s Draft Building Society Cheque Maestro Solo Visa Debit or Visa Electron Cash up to 9 000 or Interbank Transfer by 12.00 noon the day following the sale. Payment by credit card is acceptable but is subject to a surcharge of 2.5% plus VAT on the Total Amount Due. In any event purchasers are reminded that clearance of Lot(s) may only be effected once we have received cleared funds in our account. For Purchaser s wishing to pay by bank transfer our bank account details are as follows Account Name IBAN Number Swift Code Account Number Branch Sort Code Bank H&H Classics Limited GB98NWBK01091771060480 NWBKGB2L 71060480 01-09-17 Nat West Warrington and can be reviewed much the same way Veteran Cars can be re-dated as new information comes to light. The Issuing Authority can refuse to issue new papers. Any prospective purchaser should check the position of the Lot prior to bidding. Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates When mention is made of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates in this catalogue it should be borne in mind that the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain does from time to time review cars already dated and in some instances where fresh evidence becomes available alter the date. Whilst the Club makes every effort to ensure accuracy the date shown on the Dating Plate or Dating Certificate cannot be guaranteed as correct and intending purchasers should make their own enquiries as to the date of the car. Export Licence Dates Export licences may be required for any lot manufactured or produced 50 years or more prior to the date of export from the U.K. It is the responsibility of the buyer to obtain the licence and correct documentation prior to the exportation of the lot. Removal of Lots A representative of our preferred transport providers E.M. Rogers and Chas Mortimer will be present at the sale to assist with any transport requirements. All lots are held at the purchaser s risk at the fall of the hammer and must be removed not later than 1pm on the day following the sale. Please note if lot(s) are not removed by then the standard charges as stated in our Terms and Conditions will apply. Vehicle Identity and Competition History Any motor vehicle is sold as a collector s item and not as a means of transport. Buyers are specifically warned that any vehicle sold as such may well have had parts replaced and paint renewed or be made up of parts from other vehicles the condition of which may be difficult to establish. The Auctioneer has to rely on information as to the date condition and authenticity provided by the Seller and does not provide its own description and does not and cannot undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lot and it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that the Lot conforms to the description in the catalogue. The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN number under which a vehicle is offered but relies on the Seller s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing rallying or ex-works history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times both in a vehicle s works career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes works vehicles were fitted with different registration plates so that a vehicle could meet a particular event s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity. Racing Cars & Documentation Buyers are reminded that the presence of an old HVIF (FIA papers) or other documentation does not constitute a promise on behalf of the MSA or other issuing authority that they will be re-issued on demand. A car s application for a Historic Technical Passport will be subject to the prevailing regulation in Appendix K 5 MOTORCYCLES 1 1970 YAMAHA RD350 REGISTRATION Un-Reg FRAME ENGINE R5002346 R5002346 5 1975 BMW R90 6 REGISTRATION HJG439N FRAME ENGINE 9 4051486 4051486 1939 NORTON ES2 REGISTRATION Un-Reg FRAME ENGINE RPM010854 A34728 Original bike Matching numbers Collectable Matching numbers Restored in 2003 Huge history file In running order Comprehensive spares package including BMW panniers Last of the civilian bikes produced before WW2 Unusual Mk2 rear suspension set up May require some light recommissioning ESTIMATE 1000 -

The Convertible version in particular oozes an understated elegance that was the hallmark of Jaguars for many years. This particular home market example is finished in the pleasing combination of Regency Red Metallic bodywork teamed with a Creamcoloured hide interior and its odometer currently displays an unwarranted but perfectly feasible 71 646 miles. The vendor informs us that this colourful cat is in good overall condition and runs and drives very well . He currently considers the bodywork paintwork interior trim 12-cylinder engine and automatic gearbox to all be in very good order. G43 LHD comes complete with an MOT valid to July 24 next year but without any past items of history as they were mislaid in a previous sale by a deceased estate. An apparently tidy unmolested car that is now being offered at No Reserve. This charming and wonderfully coloured fabric bodied Austin 7 Saloon was first registered on April 19th 1929. According to notes supplied to our vendor when he purchased it in March 2013 the car was acquired as rough but running in 1975 by the previous owner and he proceeded to have it restored gradually over the next ten years . An owner of several Austin 7 s we believe (as is the current vendor) he states on some incredibly comprehensive and caring operation notes he passed to our vendor that he had done many rallies in the car all over England and Scotland including the JOGLE Rally (John o Groats to Lands End) and rallies with the 750 Motor Club. Described by the vendor as being in good condition in all respects this is a delightful little Austin 7. 12 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION 1939 MG TA ESTIMATE 10000 - 12000 3 1960 BENTLEY S2 SALOON ESTIMATE SINGLE FAMILY OWNERSHIP FROM NEW 13000 - 15000 4 REG NO CHASSIS YXG 811 14178430 REG NO CHASSIS 579 UYS B30BS As the vendor of this Primrose-coloured right-hand drive TA rightly notes very few examples of the model remain unrestored these days. This apparently still unmolested one was repatriated from Arizona in 2010 since when it has been retained in dry storage. The vendor informs us that the body and chassis are rust-free but that the body s wooden framework is in need of some attention. Evidently YXG 811 is almost 100 percent complete and apparently starts and drives nicely and the vendor sums up the MG s current condition as follows engine and transmission good bodywork and paintwork average and interior trim and electrical equipment poor . He feels the TA s restoration will be straightforward and the MG will make a beautiful car when it s done . A perfect project for the Winter nights ahead. Introduced in 1936 the TA Midget remained virtually unchanged throughout its four years of production during which 3 003 examples were manufactured. Purchased by the Baxter family in May 1960 579 UYS is a righthand drive S2 that s remained within the family until the present day. Following a period of dry storage the Bentley has been recommissioned to MOT standard by Classic Restorations of Alyth Scotland. Tastefully finished in Green inside and out it currently displays 88 607 miles and is being offered complete with MOT valid to May 8 2017. The preceding S1 model was the last of the marque to employ Bentley s venerable 150bhp 4.9-litre straight-six engine. And though being built along traditional lines with a separate chassis and body facilitated the manufacture of coachbuilt versions the vast majority were delivered with the Standard Steel one. Greatly improved performance arrived with the S2 model of 1959 when the venerable six-cylinder unit was finally pensioned off in favour of an all-new 6.2-litre aluminium V8 one. This raised the top speed to some 114mph and considerably enhanced acceleration throughout the range. 13 MOTOR CARS 5 1975 ENFIELD 8000 ESTIMATE NO RESERVE 6 1933 MORRIS 10 4 SPECIAL COUPE ESTIMATE 9000 - 11000 REG NO CHASSIS MVO 380P 056-9-75 REG NO CHASSIS APF 881 12369 According to accompanying paperwork MVO 380P was purchased new in 1976 by the Electricity Council since when the electric two-door two-seater City car has had three keepers the most recent of whom acquired it in May 1990. It last saw the public roads back in 1997 following which it has been dry stored and the odometer currently displays an unwarranted but entirely feasible 19 758 miles. The little Enfield is now presented in the contrasting combination of White bodywork and Black interior trim and the vendor presently grades its bodywork as good and the paintwork and interior trim as average . A rare opportunity to acquire at No Reserve a car that s arguably more suited to today s environment than the one it was born in. The 8000 was produced by Enfield Automotive on the Isle of Wight. A total of 120 were completed of which 65 were utilised by the Electricity Council and Southern electricity boards. This delightful and rare classic British Coupe was acquired by the vendor in 2008 - it had been stored for 33 years in a heated garage. The bodywork remained very good but the interior was dirty and badly worn and the mechanical components in a parlous state. The inside was therefore thoroughly refurbished the engine extensively overhauled by T&L Engineering of Elstowe Beds and the steering braking and suspension components repaired or renewed as required. The vendor now grades the two-tone Grey bodywork and 1296cc engine as excellent and the paintwork Light Blue trim and four-speed manual transmission as good . He says he s tried to present the car as you would expect an 83 year old vehicle to be and the only concessions to modernity are the flashing indicators. APF 881 is equipped with new Longstone tyres and comes complete with green log book V5 collection of invoices operation manual and maintenance diagrams. 14 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION 1981 SEBRING TMX ESTIMATE 24000 - 28000 7 1935 BSA SCOUT ESTIMATE 10000 - 14000 8 REG NO CHASSIS MXI 439 TMX2DW1A0011 REG NO CHASSIS BOB 452 15.406 As part of his publicity campaign to promote the Austin-Healey 100 4 Donald Healey entered a team of four pre-production cars for the 1953 Le Mans 24-hour race. Running with standard windscreens interiors and even bumpers two of this mildly tweaked quartet survived to finish 12th and 14th overall (an amazing result for such comparatively inexpensive cars in near showroom condition). Amongst numerous other racing and rallying victories Austin-Healey enjoyed further success at the Sebring International Raceway in the USA. Offering classic 1960 s looks but with the confidence and reliability that current technology brings the Sebring TMX offers performance and excitement aplenty at a fraction of the cost of an original Big Healey. This example is fitted with a 4.4-litre V8 engine matched to manual transmission. MXI 439 is offered with V5C history file and build manual and comes with a current MOT certificate into August 2017. Purchased by our vendor on a bit of a whim last May he wasn t really looking for another vehicle but being called Bob he felt it was meant to be his car An original buff registration book on file shows that this charming front-wheel-drive BSA Scout was first registered on June 28th 1935. Purchased in June 2000 by a Glynn Edwards as a project it appears from a letter in the history file from a former owner to the BSA FWD Club that the car was undergoing rejuvenation as long ago as 1989. Mr Edwards carried out a very thorough rejuvenation which was finished in June 2005 and photographs are on file showing some of the work in progress. In the file are a set of wood frame plans and it is believed that much of the Ash frame was replaced during the rejuvenation. Mr Edwards was apparently 92 years old when he sold the car to our vendor and it is only being sold now due to moving home to somewhere with less garaging. The BSA is described by the vendor as having a good paintwork and very good bodywork engine gearbox and interior trim. 15 MOTOR CARS 9 1973 ALFA ROMEO GT 1600 JUNIOR ESTIMATE 14000 - 18000 10 1974 TRIUMPH TR6 ESTIMATE 14000 - 17000 REG NO CHASSIS UDA 5L AR 2206022 REG NO CHASSIS SVR 43H CF24347U This Bertone designed Alfa Romeo coupe was first registered on July 1st 1973. Painted in Alfa Red with a black vinyl interior the car was the recipient of much body and mechanical work during 1990 and 1991 including a repaint of the body a retrim of the interior and new pistons and liners and engine bearings. The car was repainted again in 2008 and in April 2010 it was purchased by the father of the current owner with it being registered in his name the following year. The GT Junior has been much enjoyed by our vendor and in 2010 he had the cylinder head overhauled and in 2013 he had an Alfaholics Fast-Road Suspension Kit B fitted along with their 7x15 GTA style alloy wheels. With the history file containing invoices and photographs for much of the work mentioned above there are also many previous MOT certificates one dating from 1991. Described by the vendor as being in good condition with regards to the body paint and interior with the engine described as very good it is believed to be supplied with its original wheels and bumpers. To many the TR6 s sharp styling - Karmann s reinterpretation of the Michelotti-penned TR4 TR5 - looks ever better with age and this notably smart red example certainly strikes the right pose. Trimmed in Black and riding on Minilite-style wheels it benefits from a restoration in 2012 and a range of mechanical upgrades. These include competition clutch oil cooler EBC Green Stuff brake pads operating on drilled grooved discs and a roll cage. Further additions to the specification include a factory hardtop superior four-speaker stereo and USB connectivity. The vendor informs us that the Triumph drives and handles beautifully and regards the bodywork paintwork original Black vinyl interior straight-six engine and manual gearbox as all being in excellent order. He says the car has travelled just 5 000 miles in the last 11 years and believes the indicated total of 79 396 to be genuine.

The T-bird remained fundamentally unchanged during the first two years before a restyle for 1957 introduced fins on a longer tail section increased boot space and more aggressive frontal styling. The following year the T-bird grew larger in its second generation the 58 Square-bird being the first of the line to adopt unitary construction and offer four seats. Imported into the UK in 2014 this smart example is finished in white with red white vinyl interior and benefits from the fitment of a new steering wheel and chrome wheels at a cost of over 3 500. New shock absorbers and brakes have also been fitted along with a number of other miscellaneous parts for which we are advised the invoices total thousands of pounds. Described as having good bodywork engine and gearbox with very good interior this classic piece of Americana complete with rare external spare wheel with bumper and clam shell case is offered with a Swansea V5 document and the non-transferable registration 326 UYG. This exceedingly smart pick-up truck is powered by a 350ci V8 engine topped by a Rochester 4-barrel carburettor and drives through a three-speed automatic transmission. Finished in the striking combination of White over Blue and trimmed in a complementary-coloured mix of cloth and leatherette it was restored in the US in circa 2008 by its previous keeper a retired panel beater. The comprehensive programme of improvement included a complete repaint re-trim and new oak panelling for the load deck - it was also equipped with fresh wheels and tyres. It is now offered complete with US title NOVA reference for UK registration and new MOT a collection of invoices including a 1 050 one for an overhaul of the gearbox and modern CD stereo unit. The vendor currently classes the bodywork paintwork interior trim engine and transmission as all being in very good order and the odometer currently stands at an unwarranted 58 497 miles. 17 MOTOR CARS 13 1964 JAGUAR E-TYPE 3.8 COUPE CURRENT FAMILY OWNERSHIP SINCE 1970 ESTIMATE 35000 - 45000 Considering the perennial popularity of the immortal E-Type Jaguar it s extraordinary how many have been confined to barns over the years and are only now resurfacing to the delight of new would-be owners. So if you missed the last one for some reason take due heed of PRF 935B a delightfully unmolested late 3.8-litre Coupe that s just been exposed to the full light of day for the first time in c.40 years and not even been started for c.15. Finished in Red matched to a Grey interior it was apparently supplied new by Byatts of Fenton (then the Jaguar dealer for the Stoke-On-Trent area) to F. Fradley Ltd of Hanley Staffs since when it has had just two private keepers - namely Arthur Henry Brooks of Leek Staffs and the deceased husband of the vendor who purchased it for his wife in 1970. At the time they too were Staffordshire based but moved to Cheshire in the late 70s so it s fair to surmise that most of the E-Type s miles have been accrued in and around the Staffordshire area and it s pleasing to note it retains its original Staffs registration number. Bearing in mind the above history the car s indicated mileage of just 52 738 is more than credible if not completely warranted. It is now being offered complete with decades of dust plus the green log book original handbook warranty card service book containing eight entries Jaguar Heritage Certificate and five old MOT certificates the last of which was dated 1973 1974 at which point the mileage apparently stood at 50 000. It s fair to say PRF 935B will take a lot of restoration work at a not inconsiderable cost but the opportunity to acquire an apparently complete and unmolested righthand drive 3.8 Coupe of which only 1 798 were made will doubtless set many a pulse racing.

It s no ordinary Series 3 either but one of the rare Holbayengined ones (less than 350 S3s were made very few of which were Holbay-powered). The other extras specified when the car was ordered new from Lotus agent Caterham Cars in Autumn 1969 were a set of Lotus Dunlop alloy wheels and pair of seat belts. Its specification also included the later stronger Ford gearbox and Ford rear axle which together with the hand-built engine made for a tough reliable version of this iconic breed of Lotus. In 1989 the powerplant was returned to Holbay and overhauled as a precautionary measure. During the refurbishment it was fitted with a later stronger cylinder block however the original unit was retained and is available if required. When new the alloy body featured a Yellow nosecone and wings but was painted Silver all over around the same time as the engine work was carried out - the colour contrasts well with the car s Black vinyl trim. All parts that have removed such as the front wings hood side screens rare rear lights tonneau etc are being automatically included in the sale. The car also comes complete with its original V5 Lotus Letter of Provenance letter between Holbay and the owner regarding the overhaul carried out and a copy of Lotus s hand-written build sheet. The Seven currently indicates a total unwarranted mileage of 40 039 and is considered by the vendor to have excellent engine good bodywork paintwork and four-speed manual transmission and average interior trim. A rare opportunity for the many lovers of Chapman s rightly revered Lotus Seven. 19 MOTOR CARS 15 1962 JAGUAR E-TYPE 3.8 ROADSTER ESTIMATE 75000 - 95000 785 UYR was manufactured on September 24th 1962 and despatched a couple of weeks later to Jaguar s New York agent to deliver to its first owner a Mr E. White. At the time it featured left-hand drive and was finished in Black with contrasting Red interior trim. The vendor is a Jaguar collector who acquired the car in 1994 following its repatriation as a restoration project straight from the USA. Working hand in glove with appropriate specialists between 2012 and 2016 he converted the E-type to right-hand drive and largely completed the intended rejuvenation of the vehicle before ill health sadly forced him to cease work on the project. To date the restoration has included the replacement of sills on both sides of the car the installation of new floor sections and the purchase of lots of new parts that were employed in the refurbishment of the engine clutch gearbox differential electrical system hood frame and interior trim etc. The tyres are also new allround. Among the remaining tasks are tuning the engine fitting the sun visors and boot carpet and general road testing so it should be possible for the next keeper to complete the work in pretty short shrift. The odometer presently displays an unwarranted 73 987 miles and the Jaguar now features Red bodywork teamed with Black interior trim - ie the reverse of how it started life. The vendor currently classes the interior trim 3.8-litre engine and four-speed manual transmission as very good and the bodywork and paintwork as good . He is now offering the E-Type complete with Jaguar Heritage certificate an MOT valid until March 16th next year a large collection of invoices from the likes of Martin Robey Hutson Motor Company and the David Manners REG NO CHASSIS 785 UYR 878215 Group etc plus a photographic record of all the work carried out to date. 20 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION ESTIMATE 30000 - 40000 1967 MERCEDES-BENZ 250 SL 16 REG NO CHASSIS YTA 486E 11304322001482 corners and steering by power-assisted recirculating ball. Able to blur the divide between city streets and open roads with ease the majority of 250SLs were specified with four-speed automatic gearboxes. Faster than the 230SL which preceded it yet more stiffly-sprung and agile than its 280SL successor the 250SL remained in production for just a single year accounting for a mere 5 196 sales worldwide more than a third of which were exported to America. A cult car by any standards SLs have had countless celebrity owners from Charlton Heston to Kate Moss John Lennon to Sophia Loren and Peter Ustinov to Stirling Moss. They have also starred in myriad films including Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy The Baader Meinhof Complex and Frost Nixon . This white automatic example was reportedly sold new in Germany in right hand drive configuration. The vendor has no proof of this but perhaps it was supplied to someone in the Forces stationed in Germany. The car seems to be well travelled as it was imported from Japan a few years ago and has been enjoyed by the vendor for the last couple of years. Accompanied by a hard top and third sideways rear seat the vendor describes the car as having good bodywork and interior trim and an excellent engine . The rarest W113 variant the 250SL was officially introduced at the March 1967 Geneva Salon. Blessed with the same effortlessly elegant Paul Bracq styling as its earlier sibling it was powered by a new sevenbearing crankshaft 2496cc SOHC straight-six engine that developed some 150bhp and 159lbft of torque - sufficient outputs to endow the Mercedes with a 0-60mph time of a whisker under 11 seconds and a top speed just north of 120mph. Braking was by power-assisted discs on all four 21 MOTOR CARS 17 1981 PORSCHE 911 TURBO ESTIMATE 50000 - 60000 Finished in the subtle combination of Baltic Blue bodywork and Black leather interior trim this left-hand drive 930 Series Turbo initially dwelt in the relatively rust-free state of California where it is understood to have remained in the same ownership from 1987 until recently imported to the UK. The vendor informs us that the Porsche sustained some mild damage to the bonnet and rear quarter panels during shipping but as the car was otherwise in such first-class condition it was decided to invest in a full respray rather than just local repairs. This work was carried out by Norfolk Premier Coachworks of Norwich who also fitted factory specification replacement wheels and tyres and carried out a degree of reupholstery. Finally an engine leak down test was successfully performed and new oil lines installed to bring the car up to A1 condition . The Porsche was MOT d in September having travelled zero miles since the previous test - the total mileage now stands at just 42 104. With all the above in mind the vendor has no hesitation in declaring the car s bodywork paintwork interior trim 3.3-litre flat-six engine and four-speed manual gearbox as all being in excellent order. With the values of all generations of 911 continuing to rise such quality examples are inevitably increasingly keenly sought after. The 930 was introduced at the 1974 Paris Motorshow and produced from 1975 to 1989 during which time it topped Porsche s model range. It was based around the Carrera 3.0 RS the engine from which was modified courtesy of turbo technology originally developed for the 917 30 CAN-AM cars. Power output of the 3.3-litre REG NO CHASSIS Un-Reg WP0ZZZ93ZBS000183 versions was 300bhp - enough to accelerate the car to 60mph in 4.9 seconds and on to 156mph.

The original WW2 body tub grille bonnet screen and wings were sympathetically repaired and the Jeep rewired incorporating many original items but with the benefit of an upgrade to 12-volts the lights modified to take modern bulbs indicators fitted and a conventional towing socket added. The steering box was rejuvenated and new track rod ends installed. The road springs shock absorbers and spring shackles were reconditioned as necessary. The radiator core was renewed too. An inspection carried out by The Military Vehicle Trust last year confirmed the chassis is an original Ford item that was built in June 1943 and that the vehicle was substantially complete and genuine . Subsequently road registered by the DVLA as YXG 313 and fitted with a correct-type 2.2 litre four-cylinder engine the Jeep comes complete with a rear mounted Jerry Can and spare wheel canvas tilt shovel and axe and US Military bonnet markings.

It is very smartly-presented in Red inside and out and benefits from a relatively recent nut and bolt restoration during which every item is understood to have been refurbished or replaced - including the original body which was supplanted by a new Naylor s ash example. Owned by the same enthusiast for 24 years it was then purchased from our Duxford auction in September 2011. Since then it has been largely garaged but nevertheless treated to a top end engine overhaul gearbox brake and cooling system service and radiator recore. The vendor currently has no hesitation in classing the bodywork paintwork interior trim engine and transmission as all being in excellent condition. Riding on smart chrome wire wheels this former concours award-winning two-seater also sports a rare original Midget mascot replacement Bloomberg steering wheel tonneau cover aero screens side wind deflectors and original Shelley tools (housed in two trays). Among its claims to fame are featuring in the BBC s Strathblair TV Series (original tape included) and being used to help launch the new MGF at the RAF Leuchars air base in Fife (photographs included). A fine example of the first and arguably purist member of MG s much-loved T Series lineage. Announced in 1936 the TA established the famous T-Series pedigree which would persist until the mid1950s. Designed around a simple new ladder-type chassis frame with beam axles front and rear it employed a modified Morris powertrain including an overhead-valve 52bhp 1292cc engine and partsynchromesh four-speed gearbox. Visually and structurally the bodystyle was an evolution of earlier MG Midgets. The top speed was up to 75mph the ride was firm but the entire driving experience was exhilarating.

It broke some of the firm s established traditions in that the design was outsourced - to Carrozzeria Touring - and the bodies were made of steel rather than glass reinforced plastic. Power was initially supplied by a 6276cc Chrysler V8 driving through either a four-speed manual or threespeed TorqueFlite automatic transmission to an LSDequipped Salisbury rear axle. The MKII model of 1969 brought revised frontal styling and ventilated disc brakes. Introduced at the October 1971 Earl s Court Motor Show the Interceptor III was visually distinguished by cast headlight surrounds GKN cast alloy wheels and a comprehensively revamped interior and was produced in four Series - G H J and S4. By May 1972 the engines on RHD cars had been increased in capacity to a whopping 7212cc. A total of some 6 408 Interceptors were produced between 1966 and 1976. However just 509 of those were Convertibles. The indicated mileage of this gorgeous-looking Interceptor is just 25 000 - a plausible though unwarranted figure the vendor feels is supported by the sheer quality of the interior engine bay and underside of the car. He informs us that the automatic gearbox and torque converter have been replaced in recent times and that he presently grades the Jensen as almost concours with excellent bodywork paintwork interior trim and transmission and adds that the V8 is the sweetest you will hear and the car is simply a pleasure to drive . Though just 4 000 miles have been covered in the last 16 years the Interceptor was apparently extensively used and enjoyed this summer but must now make way for the impending arrival of an Aston Martin. Finished in lustrous Metallic Blue and trimmed in Black leather contrasted by sheepskin inserts this lovely combination of British engineering and American muscle would surely grace any classic car collection. 25 MOTOR CARS 21 1968 DAIMLER V8-250 ESTIMATE 18000 - 20000 22 1982 FERRARI MONDIAL 8 ESTIMATE 24000 - 28000 REG NO CHASSIS JPR 806F P1K3031BW REG NO CHASSIS VPD 995X ZFFHD08C000040529 Among the smarter Daimler V8-250s that we have encountered JPR 806F was treated to an extensive mechanical and cosmetic refurbishment during the late 1990s early 2000s.

Once in production it enjoyed steady development with the original four-cylinder cars giving way to the 100-Six of 1956 which was followed by the first of the 3000s in 1959 and the MKII 3000 in 1961. Introduced in February 1962 the 3000 MKII 2 2 BJ7 model (nicknamed the MKIIA) pioneered such luxuries as wind-up windows swivelling quarter-lights and a fixed convertible hood. Its independent wishbone front suspension gained stiffer coil springs and it benefited from a more direct steering box. The manual overdrive transmission gained a new case and the 2912cc straight-six engine switched to twin carburettors. With a reputed 132bhp and 170lbft of torque on tap Girling front discs became standard equipment. Despatched on 2 May 1963 to London dealer Car Mart Ltd and registered BHX 966A this original RHD home market car has been in the current ownership since 1998.

Benefiting from a wider track longer wheelbase and better brakes than its predecessors the last of the E-Type Roadsters was fitted with power steering as standard but still promised a nigh on 150mph top speed. According to its accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate this particular example was built on 12th October 1973 and dispatched to British Leyland New York some three months later. Originally finished in Pale Primrose Yellow with Cinnamon leather upholstery the E-Type was purchased new by R. Daniel Woods of Stockton California from his local dealership Norman Nock Imported Cars as a 50th birthday present to himself on April 19th 1975. Acquired in preference to a Porsche the V12 Roadster was still in Mr Woods possession past his 90th birthday by which time it had covered a mere 19 000 miles from new. Resident in California until entering the current (second) ownership last year the Jaguar has since been treated to sympathetic recommissioning and a repaint in its initial hue (the latter due to sun-bleaching). Understood to be highly original even down to the preservation of its factory-fitted exhaust and air-conditioning systems the E-Type nevertheless reportedly had its Borg Warner automatic transmission overhauled at 15 000 miles. A real timewarp that pleasingly retains its original interior (complete with Black vinyl hood) and matching numbers V12 powerplant KRB 581N has yet to record 20 000 miles on its odometer.

JOJ 992N is now being offered complete with a copy of that diary V5C and an MOT valid to April 18 next year. There is also a fascinating letter of May 2013 from the Secretary of the Iso and Bizzarini Club explaining that the fact this particular car was manufactured in December 1973 but remained unsold until 1975 could well be because the company entered liquidation early in 1974. It also points out that the sales records of the last UK concessionaires Nicholas van der Steen Ltd are According to the Iso and Bizzarini Owners Club this eye-catching example of 70s Italian exotica is one of only 12 right-hand drive Lele Sports made and therefore exceedingly rare. The Sport version most notably boasted a ZF five-speed manual gearbox plus a modelspecific interior and range of identifying body details. This car s 5.7-litre Ford engine was apparently overhauled three years ago at which time it was uprated with Holley carburettor Weland alloy intake manifold and electronic ignition. The vendor acquired the Lele in October 2009 presumed to have been lost. However the Secretary did enclose the relevant page from the factory build sheets which forms part of the accompanying history file. A rare and exciting motorcar that is extremely well presented throughout. The striking Lele was penned by Marcello Gandini on behalf of Bertone and produced from 1969 to the closure of the company in 1974. Of 2 2 configuration it sat between the Grifo and Fidia in the maker s model range all of which were powered by either Ford or Chevrolet V8 engines - the Ford ones with manual transmission produced 360bhp. 31 MOTOR CARS 29 1966 JAGUAR E-TYPE 4.2 ROADSTER ESTIMATE 55000 - 65000 32 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Famously launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show the Jaguar E-Type created a furore. Nothing else on the market could rival its combination of supercar performance breathtaking styling and relative affordability. Whilst early racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori amongst others only added to the model s allure. Built as a monocoque with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine the newcomer boasted excellent roadholding and handling capabilities due to its all-round independent suspension fourwheel disc brakes and rack and pinion steering. The indomitable XK 3.8 litre twin-cam supplied abundant power. If the design had an Achilles heel then it was the recalcitrant Moss gearbox. However this shortcoming was addressed in autumn 1964 when Jaguar introduced an all-synchromesh four-speeder of its own design together with an enlarged 4235cc straight-six and revised dashboard layout. With a quoted 265bhp and 283lbft of torque on tap these updated E-types were reputedly capable of nigh on 150mph and 0-60mph in 7.5 seconds. For many the ultimate E-Type derivative just 863 RHD 4.2 Roadsters were produced before the introduction of the so-called Series 1.5 cars. According to its accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate this particular example chassis 1E1468 - was built on 4th February 1966 and despatched some twelve days later to Henlys of London. Initially road registered as KGU 782D (the same number plate it pleasingly wears today) the two-seater is understood to have been repainted and re-trimmed from Primrose Yellow with Black to Red with Beige as part of an extensive restoration that was completed in 1980. Owned for the best part of four decades by the Shreeves family of Flitwick Bedfordshire the Jaguar was last on the road in the early 2000s. Parked up in a garden and obscured by a hollybush that also hemmed it into place the The Jaguar s odometer currently shows some 27 992 miles which is believed but not warranted to represent the total covered since its refurbishment was completed. Deemed one restoration project too many by the vendor s family KGU 782D appears to retain its original cylinder head (the number stamped into the inner vee matching the one quoted on the JDHT Certificate) but has been fitted with a replacement cylinder block most likely due to frost damage. The aged Michelin tyres hold air and the engine can be turned over by hand (though no attempt has been made to start it). The clutch and brakes are also free. The carpets are missing from the front footwells but otherwise the car looks to be substantially complete. The paintwork has lost its shine and the chromework has corroded in places. To the interior the leather seems to be in good (if slightly grubby) condition and the Roadster boasts both a factory hardtop and soft-top. In our opinion chassis 1E1468 remains in far better order than one could reasonably expect of a garden find . However potential purchasers are very much encouraged to make their own inspections and draw their own conclusions as to the amount of work necessary to make this slumbering E-Type roadworthy again. Offered for sale with V5C registration document JDHT Certificate various 1980s photos and old tax discs etc E-Type was protected from the worst of the elements via a voluminous tarpaulin. Despite these less than ideal storage conditions the Roadster seems to be remarkably sound. A testament no doubt to the quality of the work that it underwent c.1980. 29 REG NO CHASSIS KGU 782D 1E1468 33 MOTOR CARS 30 1964 BENTLEY S3 CONTINENTAL PARK WARD COUPE ESTIMATE 140000 - 160000 Introduced in Autumn 1962 the S3 Continental was notable as the last Bentley to utilise a separate chassis. The substantial box-section structure in question was powered by a 6230cc OHV V8 engine allied to fourspeed automatic transmission. Reputedly capable of nigh-on 120mph the S3 Continental was sold to coachbuilt special order only. One of the more striking designs available the H.J. Mulliner Park Ward Fixed Head Coupe owed its beautifully sleek profile to Vilhelm Koren. A freelance stylist from Sweden the straightthrough wing line and cut-back wheelarches that he pioneered on the Bentley S2 Continental chassis were successfully carried over to its successor. Visually updated by the diagonal placement of their quad headlights the Koren-inspired S3 Continentals (in either open or closed guises) thus boasted a decidedly modern yet majestic look. Of the 312 S3 Continentals made between 1962 and 1966 a good number were supplied to such contemporary celebrities as Jayne Mansfield Fanny Craddock Sir John Mills and Harry Belafonte. Finished in Light Metallic Blue with original St. James Red leather upholstery and Burr Walnut fascia and cappings this particular example was originally registered as CPL 600B and delivered new in June 1964 to an F. Gree Esq. Having spent most of its life in Australia the beautifully preserved Continental was repatriated in 2015.

The accompanying history file contains the original service book which together with a forest of related invoices confirms a high degree of maintenance over the years. Recent attention includes a gearbox renovation in February 2007 the replacement of the clutch in 2013 and the fitment of new tyres all round within the last 1 000 miles. The records also confirm a speedometer change by Chapelgate Porsche (an authorised Porsche dealership) in March 1997 when the mileage stood at 57 674 - it currently totals c.101 000 from new. This tidy and apparently very original example of a much admired breed is now being offered by a local lady owner who currently classes the bodywork paintwork and turbocharged flat-six engine as very good and the four-speed manual transmission and interior trim as good . She is selling the car complete with the aforementioned comprehensive history file that includes the original owners wallet and manuals no less than 18 old MOT certificates plus one valid to April 12 next year. A rapidly appreciating asset capable of offering years of fast wind-in-the hair motoring. When introduced in 1974 Porsche s 3.0-litre 930 Turbo was the fastest production car available on its native German market. However the later 3.3-litre version such as the Cabriolet on offer was considerably quicker again and capable of sprinting from zero to 60mph in 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of c.160mph. The later car also featured much improved braking. A total of 16 535 3.3-litre turbos were manufactured only 918 of which were Cabriolets. 35 MOTOR CARS 32 1960 JAGUAR MK II ESTIMATE 36000 - 40000 The immortal Jaguar MKII was as airy on the inside as it was elegant on the outside. Its monocoque bodyshell was equipped with independent coil-sprung front suspension and a well located live rear axle 12-inch disc brakes all round and recirculating ball steering. The model could be specified with a 2.4 3.4 or 3.8-litre version of Jaguar s race-proved DOHC in-line sixcylinder XK engine. When equipped with the latter the MKII was capable of sprinting to 60mph in 8.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 125mph. For some however there is a desire to improve and develop a classic design to bring it into the modern age and in so doing provide levels of performance and luxury the original designers could only dream about. This amazing Mk2 is just such an example having been restored by a previous owner who specified numerous additions and improvements to turn the car into a highly useable luxurious every day mode of transport whilst retaining the timeless looks and appeal of the original. Powered by a 3.8 litre engine with 4.2 injection head 8 1 pistons and 4.2 overdrive all-synchromesh gearbox the car is said to cruise effortlessly whilst the modified suspension set up provides handling to match. Power steering cruise control electric windows electric cooling fan variable speed wipers central locking XJ40 electric front seats and air-conditioning etc. add to the cosseting driving experience.

The T referred to the re-positioned drivetrain that as per Ferrari F1 cars of the 80s featured the engine mounted longitudinally driving through a transversely positioned transmission. This set the pattern for the marque s midengined V8 cars for years to come and endowed the T with far superior handling to previous Mondials that had their engines mounted higher up and across the frame. For ease of maintenance the revised drivetrain was fixed to a removable subframe. Other Ferrari firsts embodied in the Mondial T included power-assisted steering three-position electronically controlled suspension and ABS as standard fit. Power was provided by a dry-sump V8 unit of 3.4-litres and 300bhp - sufficient to sprint the Prancing Horse to 60mph in 5.6 seconds. Production ran for just 4.5 years during which 987 Coupe versions were created just 54 of which featured right-hand drive and just five were finished in the Medio Blue of the sale car making A11 CXD a very rare example indeed.

The veteran s comfortable ride is attributable to fully- The marque took its name from Phoebus the Greek sun God and its vehicles were manufactured in the Parisian suburb of Suresnes between 1899 and 1903 by Noe Boyer et Cie. The company initially marketed Aster-engine tricycles one of which was ridden at the impressive speed of 39mph on the Crystal Palace velodrome by Charles Jarrott. F W Wellington of St George s Square London marketed the four-wheel Automobilette Phebus when it came to the UK in 1998 which inspired the Automotor Journal of January 1900 to report the new Dion-engined Phebus takes Primrose and Haverstock Hills with the greatest of ease . This charming veteran formed part of the famous Ward Brothers Collection until it was successfully auctioned in 2009. It is believed to be the only remaining example and is distinctive for having a fold-open front seat enabling passengers to be carried ahead of the steering column - hence the name. The coachwork is presented in Green and Black livery and trimmed with Black leather - the Phebus motifs on the side panels are a feature of the car. Its equipment includes a multi-twist bulb horn elliptic front suspension and C-springs on the rear. Fresh valves and valve springs have been fitted in recent years and the Phebus has successfully contested the annual London-Brighton veteran car run. Its unexpected return to the market provides an exciting opportunity to purchase a unique London-Brighton contender that combines French 19th century chic with an impressive turn of speed and of course an early starting position in Hyde Park. 47 MOTOR CARS 47 1934 MG PA SUPERCHARGED SPECIAL ESTIMATE 45000 - 55000 Surely the most familiar and best-loved sports cars of their era the P-type MGs naturally attracted the attention of the clever engineer and enthusiast in search of higher performance. Introduced in March 1934 the MG PA Midget was a more sophisticated and durable design than the J-type Midget it replaced. Longer and more rigid its cruciform-braced chassis was equipped with all round semi-elliptic leaf springs (fixed at their leading edge but held in sliding trunnions at the rear). In standard two-seater form its classic shape was described by colourful US motoring writer Ken W Purdy as a grand piano supported by four harps This supercharged PA special was built in Australia and used in competition before being imported to the UK approximately twenty years ago. The vendor an experienced engineer and racer has owned the car since 2005 during which time it was treated to a chassis up restoration approximately ten years ago. The bodywork and maroon paintwork are currently described as good whilst the 948cc engine (complete with Carrillo rods race pistons and friction-reducing Kawasaki rings) is spot on as is the pre-selector gearbox. The electrics have been rewired. The beige interior presents well with the imposing Jaeger rev counter in clear view of the driver behind the removable steering wheel. Under the bonnet the engine bay looks well cared for whilst the Blockley tyres bonnet strap and rare mechanic s grab handle complete its sporting appearance. Braking is taken care of by Jaguar SS drums to the front with standard drums to the rear.

When tested we found it to be in lovely condition with beautiful woodwork. It changed gear smoothly and was devoid of unwanted noises. HAS 249E is now available complete with the aforementioned bill of sale copies of the factory records and a fresh MOT. A fine example of a splendid breed. The Shadow s arrival in 1965 did much to reverse the notion that Rolls-Royce was falling behind the times and resulted in many firsts for the company including unitary construction rather than separate body chassis units disc rather than drum brakes and independent rear suspension. Though shorter and narrower than the Silver Cloud III it replaced the John Polwhele Blatchley-penned newcomer nevertheless possessed greater space for both luggage and passengers and certainly boasted far more contemporary looks. At launch it was powered by a 172bhp V8 engine of 6230cc. The elegant two-door version of the Shadow was introduced in 1966. This splendid two-door Saloon would impress in any company the clean lines penned by Rolls in-house designer John Polwhele Blatchley seemingly as fresh today as when first seen almost exactly 50 years ago.

Taken off the road in 1947 and left exposed to the elements the Singer s bodywork had rotted away but its chassis and running gear remained intact (albeit they had become entangled in a hedgerow which had grown up around them). Once back in his Lake District workshop the vendor began to strip down and refurbish his new acquisition. Intrigued by the presence of Castrol R (R for Racing) oil in the engine not to mention a decidedly non-standard camshaft he thought it likely that the 2-litre OHV straight-six unit had had a competition past. Knowing Fox & Nicholl of Tolworth Surrey had not only been supplied with three 1 litre Le Mans cars by the Singer Works for the 1934 season but also enlarged one of the engines to 2 litres he began to wonder whether his powerplant had any link to their endeavours. Speaking at length to the first owner s nephew revealed the car had been fitted with a new engine just before WW2 and that his uncle had gone to somewhere near London to pick up an engine gearbox and front axle from a crashed 2-litre Sports Singer . Whether the somewhere near London was Tolworth remains unknown. However a measuring tape showed the front axle to be wider than a standard 14hp assembly and the presence of twin carburettors with proper provision for them cast and bolted to the head was another anomaly. No standard 2-litre Singer six of 1934 had twin carbs . . . but the racer did. Despite much dogged detective work which saw him contact the National Motor Museum Chrysler (owner of Singer in the early 1970s) Richard Jury and Larry Gains (both mechanics with Fox & Nicholl during the early 1930s) and Bill Arnold (company secretary to Fox & Nicholl in period) the vendor was never able to prove a tangible link between his modified 14hp and the Tolworth-based firm. Nevertheless he decided to replicate the distinctive torpedo coachwork worn by BPG 333 - the Fox & Nicholl entered Singer 1 Litre that finished seventh overall at the 1934 Le Mans 24-hours - when re-bodying his car. Put back on the road in 1976 the two-seater has been well exercised and much enjoyed over the past 40 years with the vendor and his wife undertaking several 5 000-mile plus tours of Europe aboard it. Taking part in the 75th Anniversary of the Ards Tourist Trophy Races during 2003 and journeying to Le Mans Classic with the Singer Owners Club in 2008 the latter trip came after a radiator recore carburettor refurbishment and the renewal of the gearbox bearings etc. While 2013 saw the steering box reconditioned the front springs reset and the brakes attended to. A thorough engine overhaul followed in 2014 including a reground crankshaft refaced flywheel stitch-repaired and rebored refaced block and six new Arias forged pistons. Reassembled with new valves guides springs gaskets timing chains bottom and cam sprockets plus a rejuvenated distributor the straight-six had covered some 500 running-in miles and been treated to an oil change by May 2015. Finished in Fox & Nicholl Red with Black leather upholstery the Singer s detailing extends to a turned aluminium dashboard (complete with Le Mans plaque) passenger grab handle quick release radiator and fuel filler caps and auxiliary driving lights.

It has full saloon car comfort coupled with performance and roadholding of a very high order (Autocar Magazine) Introduced at the October 1953 London Motor Show the DB2 4 represented a new breed of longer-legged more accommodating Aston Martin. Some seven inches longer and a little taller than its predecessor the fitting of a smaller seventeen-gallon fuel tank (still good for circa 300 miles) plus some minor platform changes liberated enough room for two small seats to be positioned above the back axle. Visually distinguished by a one-piece windscreen and rear hatchback the new model boasted such niceties as a telescopic steering column and adjustable backrests. Panelled in lightweight aluminium over an advanced tubular frame chassis its independent front suspension featured a sophisticated trailing link coil-sprung set-up tempered by an anti-roll bar while at the rear a Panhard rod assisted radius arms in keeping the coil-sprung beam axle firmly tied down. Initially powered by a 2580cc version of the famous Willie Watson W.O. Bentley designed DOHC straightsix engine the adoption of a larger 83mm bore size saw capacity rise to 2922cc in mid-1954. Thanks to its Vantage state of tune the 2.6 litre unit was credited with developing some 125bhp and 144lbft of torque - outputs sufficient for a quoted 111mph top speed. Overshadowed by its racing DB3 DB3S siblings the model still enjoyed a successful competition career winning the team prize on the 1955 Monte Carlo Rally (interestingly the factory also fielded a pair of DB2 4s for the Mille Miglia). Of the 565 MKIs made just 448 are thought to have been two-door saloons. According to its accompanying copy Aston Martin Ltd (AML) Build Sheet and Service Record this particular MKI 2.6 litre example - chassis number LML 664 - was originally specified with optional heavy duty shock absorbers and RJ needles. Supplied new via S.M.T. to Carlaw Ltd of 97 West George Street Glasgow the DB2 4 had a replacement engine fitted whilst still under guarantee and indeed appears to have returned to the factory for occasional work up until January 1964. Migrating to America sometime thereafter the 2 2-seater was discovered by its previous keeper in a Virginian barn during 2008. Dust covered and obviously immobile for many years the Aston Martin was subsequently entrusted to Francis Warwick of the Lea Francis Co in West Palm Beach Florida (Mr Warwick s outfit specialises in the restoration of British marques). Disassembled the DB2 4 had its alloy bodywork repaired as necessary and its underside cleaned and undercoated. The wiring was renewed and the instruments rejuvenated. The engine was thoroughly checked over and compression tested and the gearbox serviced. A period correct exhaust system was installed and the radiator re-cored. Attention was paid to the fuel system suspension and four-wheel drum brakes too. Re-trimmed in Olive Green leather the interior also gained a new Beige cloth headlining and refinished wood veneer trims. The windscreen was renewed and the side window winder mechanisms overhauled.

However following the departure of Robert Bamford in 1920 Lionel Martin s concentration on motor sport naturally affected the business of manufacturing cars for sale to the public and in 1925 with its finances in a precarious position the company experienced the first of many changes of ownership. In 1924 control passed to the Charnwood family. In 1926 Bert Bertelli came on board and the company moved into new premises in Feltham. Bertelli oversaw the development of a team of Works cars to compete in racing events which were based on the 1.5-litre OHC road cars. These had dry-sump lubrication which was carried over to the short chassis International sports model which debuted in 1929. With coachwork designed by Bert Bertelli s brother Harry just 81 examples were constructed before production ended in 1932. Accompanied by a good history file containing details Chassis S50 was built in early 1930 and was first registered to Mr R A Godden of London that July. Mr Godden certainly enjoyed using the car as it returned to the Works in 1931 for an engine overhaul having covered some 18 000 miles. The next keeper a WH Ainsley of Huddersfield acquired the car in 1932 before selling it four years later to A Major G N Sheffield who spent the war years at the Royal Aircraft Establishment in Farnborough. In 1948 he sold the car to a colleague Peter White and by 1952 it was in the ownership of Aston aficionado Eric Farmer who also owned one of the 1922 GP cars. S50 remained in his possession for the next forty years being dismantled by him with a view to commencing a rebuild which he was sadly unable to continue due to illness.

He used it on the road and in various events (understood to have been the first time it experienced any form of competition) including two outings at the Brighton Speed Trials in 2007 and 2009 where it took 2nd place in the VSCC class.

His close relationship with MG naturally resulted in him taking possession of one of the new TC models in 1946. Registered in his name on 23 March of that year he kept the car until 1948 when it passed to the Watson family of Purley Surrey. Details of further keepers up to 1973 are recorded on further buff logbooks offered with the car. Recent works exceeding 4 000 have included converting the front lever arms to Spax adjustable shock absorbers with telescopic dampers being fitted to the rear.

Resident in Australia for decades the Oldsmobile was a dismantled restoration project by the time that Dr David Martin of Woodforde Adelaide acquired it during 1982. Painstakingly renovated over the next two years with assistance from Glyn Lucas (enamel paintwork) and Gordon Eames (buttoned leather upholstery) the Curved Dash was subsequently awarded the Advertiser trophy for Veteran cars by the Advertiser Named after its distinctively shaped footboard the Curved Dash Oldsmobile was introduced in 1901. Adopted as the marque s sole retail model the following year in the wake of a near catastrophic factory fire the two-seater became America s first mass-produced gasoline-powered car.

By switching to Bosch fuel injection in March 1981 Ferrari robbed its successful 308 GTB GTS models of some forty horsepower. Worried about the consequent loss of performance Maranello executive Eugenio Alzati determined to give the 90-degree quad-cam 2926cc V8 its teeth back.

The iconic Cobra was born when Texan Carroll Shelby shoe-horned Ford s new lightweight 260ci V8 into the nose of the John Tojeiro designed AC Ace. The resulting car was a winner from nose to tail and in later 289ci and 427ci guise accounted for countless race and championship victories on both sides of the Atlantic. Under the circumstances it is now hard to believe that the final road-going versions were slow to find homes. Fast forward 15 years or so however and original Cobras were suddenly escalating in value quickly shooting way beyond the reach of most enthusiasts for ever. Almost overnight the market for evocations was born. Amongst the most respected manufacturers of Cobra evocations AK Sportscars was founded in 1992 by Alan Frew and Ken Freeman. This example is understood to have been completed in 2006 by an engineer and experienced kit car builder.

The unit nowadays drives through an all-synchromesh five-speed Toyota gearbox and the Healey rides on 72 spoke 15 x 5 inch chrome wire wheels. The car comes with over 35 000 worth of receipts for parts alone which include expenditure on the above plus suspension brakes and wiring harness etc. The 3000 is finished in the attractive combination of Maroon over White and trimmed in Tan-coloured hide.

It was Sunbeam dealer George Hartwell who had the idea of creating a Sports Roadster version of the Talbot 90 Saloon. Sunbeam liked the thinking and offered the so-called Alpine for general sale and had the bodies for these striking two-seaters hand-crafted by Thrupp & Maberly. The Alpine Special was a limited edition version equipped with higher output engine just 42 of which featured righthand drive making the sale car a rare survivor. Within days of it being registered in 1954 it competed in the London MC Rally. It was apparently restored in the 70s since when it has remained unmolested save for running repairs.

The car has manual transmission with overdrive on third and top gears. The 993 variant of Porsche s iconic 911 line was a particularly significant link in the cars s long chain of development as it marked the end of an era that had begun forty-three years earlier with the 356 by being the last Porsche to be powered by an air-cooled engine. It was penned by Englishman Tony Hatter and mechanical updates included more power for the 3.6-litre flat six engine (272bhp) and a brand new sixspeed manual gearbox. The 993 was available as a two-door Coupe or Convertible and with two or four-wheel drive a latterly as a Targa with a sliding glass roof. The silver Carrera variant offered here is fitted with the popular Tiptronic automatic gearbox and black leather interior.

Based on the redoubtable 12 4 chassis the Longbridge manufacturer s High Lot model was cheaper easier to maintain and more reliable than its Morris Commercial and Beardmore opposition. Updated in 1934 as the Low Loader or LL the Austin boasted ample luggage space next to the driver and four seats to the rear compartment (though two of these were of the fold down variety). Among the more expensive coachwork options J & H Ricketts Landaulette design featured a retractable rear roof that allowed passengers to make the most of any clement weather and could be had in four- or airier six-light guises. Famously durable the 12 4 s 1861cc sidevalve four-cylinder engine was allied to an equally stoical four-speed manual gearbox both of which promised years of faithful service. One of just four Ricketts-bodied examples known to have survived ELW 601 remained in service until 1955 by which time it belonged to Alan McIntosh of Upper Norwood. Subsequently passing through the hands of F. Bloomfield Ltd H.W. Baker-Duly Jean Foster and Alan Nightingale the Austin was rescued from a council lock-up garage in Gravesend during the late 1980s by taxi collector Anthony Blackman. Treated to an extensive restoration that saw much of its ash framing renewed by subsequent keeper James Wood the 12 4 returned to the road in 2003.

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 150 bhp straight-six engine and featured such niceties as wind up windows and a walnut-veneer facia. 3000 immediately exported to the USA. It was repatriated in 1987 at which point the car was restored and converted from left to righthand drive. The task is believed to have involved some 12 000 worth of new parts including a new wiring harness.

It hadn t turn a wheel since until the vendor bought it and carried out a degree of mild recommissioning - eg he reconditioned the cooling fans renewed the brake and clutch seals and water hoses carried out a full oil service administered some repairs to the bonnet paintwork and treated the Jaguar to a thorough polish. This apparently now tidy example features a colour-matched hood rides on chrome wire wheels and is offered with V5C. Surely the perfect transport for next summer s sunshine. The Series 2 E-type production ran from 1968 to 1971 when it was supplanted by the still more federallyorientated V12-powered Series 3. Purists mourned the change to larger lamp clusters and other design details dictated by USA regulations - the E-Type s prime marketplace - but the overall outline of Malcolm Sayer s masterpiece remained unchanged.

The records note the car was fitted with NE engine modifications plus a number of other modifications including NE specification carburettors and distributor together with a raised compression ratio of 8.2 1. Clearly Crawford had competition work in mind and he went on to use the car in a number of events during his ownership including the 1935 Land s End and Edinburgh Trials. Copy photographs and articles from Light Car magazine are included in the history file illustrating some of his exploits with it.

With a 7 300rpm redline and evenly spaced gears (the exception being a notably tall fifth which permitted 100mph 4 200rpm) it was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 8 seconds and 137mph. Capable of humbling more exotic machinery on road or track the 2 2-seater could also catch out the unwary. Though Car and Driver magazine commented All told Porsche s admonition not for the novice is a bit gratuitous. Within normal driving limits and with reasonable caution the 911S handles predictably controllably and head and shoulders above practically anything else on the road . Autocar magazine were similarly impressed remarking that The Porsche 911S is a car one never likes to leave parked when one could be driving it . Despite such rave reviews a steep import duty laden asking price kept UK sales to a minimum. Indeed just 35 right-hand drive examples are thought to have been delivered new to these shores in 1967.

Increasing business demands meant that work did not get underway until the early 2000s by which time the vendor had started Beacon Hill Garage. Once professionally stripped the bodyshell proved to be in worse condition than expected and with customer jobs taking priority the 911 S was again put on hold. The refurbishment process began in earnest some seven years ago and after the monocoque was in the vendor s words totally without rust and magnificent it was painted circa 2013. He also informs us that The suspension and rolling gear were done towards the end of last year. The brake system needs overhauling (only the handbrake functions at the moment). The engine runs and feels as if it would benefit from a thorough service and good blast.

Chassis No.20KR was first registered on April 17 1929 having been equipped with innovative fourdoor All-weather coachwork by Park Ward complete with disappearing hood and wind-up windows - the original colour was Black. No less than 116 921 of the total mileage of 126 440 was accrued by the first owner before selling the car in August 1937 - it is understood he lived in Scotland and made repeated business trips to London A copy of the log book shows he paid 5 in order to retain the original registration plate US 65 which by coincidence has remained local to the car ever since and has frequently been espied in central London on a contemporary Rolls-Royce or Bentley. The replacement registration CYE 790 has remained with the car to this day. The second keeper was retired engineer H Raymond Morgan who lived in Westminster London SW1 but retained the Rolls at his primary residence near Swanage Dorset. The first of many invoices in the car s fascinating history file is one from The Marble Arch Car Service Depot dated October 8 1937 - a garage apparently recommended to him by Rolls-Royce. On October 31 1938 for the princely sum of 15 4s 1p they refurbished the cylinder head fitted a new rear hub bearing and supplied and installed a selection of electrical items. There is also a copy of a cheque made out to the same firm in August 1963 that not only covered the fitting of a replacement exhaust downpipe but also a degree of garaging and fuel. Intriguing correspondence between Rolls-Royce and Mr Morgan of July 1968 reveals that in both August 1932 (with the speedometer reading 56 832 miles) and July 1935 the company fitted replacement standard-sized pistons for reasons that are not stated. CYE 790 was recently released from 20 years of dry storage and treated to a degree of light recommissioning. The vendor now grades the bodywork interior trim six-cylinder engine and fourspeed manual transmission a very good and the paintwork as good . Though the car certainly looks remarkably pristine once more it would clearly be prudent for the next keeper to carry out further checks before this amazingly original Rolls-Royce finally and triumphantly returns to the road. The third keeper has been the now late Sydney Creamer who purchased the Rolls for 1 250 on May 1 1969 at which time the odometer was showing 124 442 miles. He immediately set about a progressive programme of restoration that lasted until 1973 and included having various items of brightwork rechromed (1969) the paintwork stripped and resprayed in Land Rover Bronze Green and Black and the rear bumper modified and the tail lights moved there from the body (1970) the purchase of six fawn hides from Connolly in readiness for reupholstering (1971) the interior fully retrimmed the flooring recarpeted with stock purchased direct from Wilton and a new hood installed all courtesy of Roy Creech of Fingringhoe Essex (1972 1973). At a later date the radiator was fully refurbished by Serck Services (1977) a replacement alloy cylinder head sourced from the USA (1985) and the exhaust system replaced (1982). The keeper s notes confirm that he obtained from Mr Morgan the original handbook with detailed instructions on starting and driving the RollsRoyce and bonnet mascot plus a substantial typed record of service and maintenance from the time the car was new.

Ownership records are on file from 1972 onwards with the current owner purchasing the car as a project in January 2012 from a company in Newport Gwent that specialised in Daimler limousine hire. Our vendor was told by the seller that during their six year ownership the wooden frame chrome and engine had all been rejuvenated. Since acquisition our vendor has repainted the car and completely retrimmed the interior himself with new leather carpets headlining and refurbishing the original woodwork. Hardly used by the current owner he describes the paintwork as average the transmission as good and the engine bodywork and interior trim as very good and does recommend that safety checks are carried out before the car returns to the road. 78 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION 1990 FERRARI 250 GTO EVOCATION ESTIMATE 26000 - 30000 80 1972 ALFA ROMEO 2000 GTV ESTIMATE 18000 - 26000 81 REG NO CHASSIS VIL 8089 WP0ZZZ94ZLN401416 REG NO CHASSIS BNT464K AR 2410066 Perhaps the most iconic automotive design ever the Ferrari GTO has long been the subject of facsimilies and replicas and the car on offer today is an evocation of Le Mans-winning chassis 19.

Sitting on chrome wire wheels with hub converters and three-eared spinners great attention to detail has resulted in an exotic-looking but easy to live with car that is sure to turn heads. Offered with service history relating to the donor 944 and a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale we understand the belts and tensioners were recently replaced along with the alternator and an uprated starter motor fitted. With Alfa Romeo s Fusi claiming right hand drive 2000 GTV chassis numbers started at 2410001 it is probable that this GTV was only the 65th example of this beautiful Bertone designed car produced. Sold new to the car-friendly climate of South Africa it is believed to have remained there until our vendor acquired it from the director of a Nissan car dealership in Johannesburg earlier this year and imported it into England. Reportedly still having its original service book the GTV is believed to have been rejuvenated in 2005 and from the photograph of the floor seen here it can be presumed that it was done to a very good standard. A colour sticker on the car indicates that it is finished in the striking colour known as Prototype Yellow that was made famous in period by the colour of the one-off Alfa Romeo 33 2 Coupe Speciale by Pininfarina and the interior is trimmed in black vinyl. The odometer on this GTV displays just 90 500 kilometres (56 200 miles) and the car is described by the vendor as being in excellent condition in all respects. It has just been UK registered and we believe the MOT is valid until September 2017. 79 MOTOR CARS 82 1957 LAGONDA 3 LITRE SALOON ESTIMATE 16000 - 20000 83 1979 ROLLS-ROYCE SILVER SHADOW II ESTIMATE 14000 - 18000 REG NO CHASSIS SVB 600 LB2901209 REG NO CHASSIS CYH 309V SRH38031 At its announcement in 1953 Lagonda s new 3 Litre model was only available in two-door Convertible and Saloon guise but a four-door Saloon similar to that of the previous 2.6 Litre followed the following year as did a MKII specification that included floor-mounted gearchange. Production of the convertible ceased in 1957 and that of the Saloon in 1958 by which time just 270 3-litres had been made. The 1957 3-litre Saloon has remained in dry storage and has been unused for over 20 years and was in the care of its previous keeper for no less than 56 years.

Bodied in Birmabright aluminium alloy over ash (save for its steel pontoon front wings) the Roadster was underpinned by a tubular ladder-frame chassis featuring independent front suspension a live rear axle and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a 1776cc OHV four-cylinder engine (shared with the contemporary Jaguar range) allied to four-speed column-change manual transmission the model was reputedly capable of 80mph. Superseded by a larger-engined version in 1948 just 2 501 1800 Roadsters are thought to have been made. The righthand drive example currently being sold is described by the vendors as sound and is as original aside of the sensible addition of an electric fuel pump. Full of charm all GRK 452 needs is a willing new keeper to begin another chapter of spirited wind-in-the hair motoring. The V8-250 was a derivative of the MKII Jaguar. It took its name from the engine that powered it - a lightweight eight-cylinder unit of 2548cc designed by Edward Turner. First registered in November 1964 the tidy automatic transmission example offered was the subject of an extensive restoration in the late 1990s. Further improvements took place over the following eight years which included an engine overhaul the cylinder heads converted to run on unleaded fuel new radiator heater stainless steel exhaust bumpers rear lights and Koni shock absorbers and a refurbished interior including new headlining dash door cappings and Motalita steering wheel.

While its use of independent torsion-bar front suspension a live leaf-sprung rear axle and rack-and-pinion steering mirrored the practice of its XK140 predecessor the new model benefited from the option of all-round Dunlop disc brakes (though in practice very few - if any - cars were delivered with drum brakes). Stylistically the newcomer was brought up-todate with less ostentatious curves and a larger wraparound single piece windscreen. The dashboard too was altered eschewing wood trim for padded leather. With the E-type still very much under development Jaguar was keen to sustain the sporting reputation that a remarkable five Le Mans victories (1951 1953 1955 1956 and 1957) had earned it. Initially powered by a 3442cc derivative of the marque s race-proven DOHC straight-six engine the XK150 could be had in Fixed-Head Coupe Open Two-Seater (Roadster) or Drophead Coupe guises. More expensive than the other bodystyles the soft-top coupe boasted occasional rear seats and a fully lined hood. Ticking the Special Equipment box on the order form resulted in the following upgrades B-type cylinder head overdrive twin-exhaust system and wire wheels. With a claimed 210hp on tap the SE 3.4 Litre cars were reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 8.5 seconds and 124mph. Total right-hand drive XK150 Drophead Coupe production is thought to have amounted to just 663 cars (for both 3.4 litre and 3.8 litre variants). Unsurprisingly survivors are highly prized by collectors. 86 REG NO CHASSIS 300 JGP S827388 83 MOTOR CARS 86 Quite simply the nicest XK150 Drophead Coupe we have thus far encountered 300 JGP is a desirable home market Special Equipment model that has only recently emerged from a two-year long restoration by marque specialists XK Engineering. A testament to the quality of the Coventry firm s work the Jaguar was stripped to a bare chassis before being painstakingly refurbished. Thoroughly overhauled its matching numbers 3.4 litre straight-six DOHC engine (number V6989-8) was allied to a later four-speed manual plus overdrive transmission for increased drivability. The steering suspension and four-wheel disc brakes were reconditioned too and a new wiring loom installed. Repainted in its initial Cotswold Blue livery the 2 2-seater also gained a re-trimmed interior new Dark Blue hood replated brightwork and new chrome wire wheels shod with fresh tyres. The resulting machine is impressive to say the least and has covered a mere 200 miles since the completion of its meticulous show quality restoration. Only reluctantly being offered for sale due to a change in the vendor s plans this very special Jaguar is being further fettled by XK Engineering prior to its appearance at IWM Duxford. Worthy of close inspection 300 JGP is accompanied by a Jaguar Heritage Certificate history file and numerous photographs chronicling its rejuvenation (housed on a memory stick). 84 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION 86 85 MOTOR CARS 87 1924 BENTLEY 3 4.5 LITRE TOURER ESTIMATE 250000 - 300000 86 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Though initially opposed to the idea of competing at Le Mans W O Bentley was well aware of how success in motorsport can aid sales and following the privateer 4th place of Duff and Clement in the inaugural 1923 Le Mans race Bentley triumphed at La Sarthe in 1924 1927 1928 1929 and 1930. The first two victories were achieved with versions of the 3 Litre model - an extraordinary feat considering it was the first to be produced by a company that had only commenced production in 1921. By 1928 however more power was required and Bentley won with the 4 1 2 Litre car Old Mother Gun that had been trialled the previous year but eliminated in the infamous White House crash. Since then upgrading the engine to 4 1 2 Litres (in essence 2 3rds of the company s 6 1 2 litre unit) has been an accepted way of improving the performance of the 3 Litre models and is exactly what was done to Chassis No.735 during the comprehensive restoration that turned it into the splendid-looking motorcar now offered for sale. A copy of the chassis records shows that on completion in 1924 XU 3216 was handed over to Eustace Watkins of Bond Street London for delivery to its first owner - Archibald J Ballantine of G Ballantine & Sons 1 Craigmillar Park Edinburgh. Whisky drinkers will be well aware that Ballantines is a famous make of blended Scotch that dates back to 1827. Archie was a grandson of the founder and responsible for the company s operations in Edinburgh while his brother steered its fortunes in Glasgow garnering a Royal Warrant from Queen Victoria along the way. The records suggest Archie put his new toy to good use with considerable maintenance carried out year on year - for example the engine was decoked and new valves and piston rings installed in 1928. Servicing was variously carried out by J A Hogg & Co of Peebles in 1929 and 1931 and by Scottish Motor Traction of Edinburgh in 1932. The trail then goes largely cold until 87 REG NO CHASSIS XU 3216 735 87 MOTOR CARS 87 June 1998 when the car was rediscovered. The chassis had been refurbished and shortened from 10 to 9 9 1 2 inches but the Bentley still retained its original engine steering box etc. The chassis is stamped on the front dumb iron and it is understood the offside rail is a repaired original whilst the nearside chassis rail has been replaced. There is a letter on file from the Bentley Drivers Club the following January concerning an inspection of the car they carried out on behalf of Rod Warriner Restorations in which they confirm it to be Chassis No.735 and recommend the original registration XU 3216 (that had lapsed due to a very lengthy rebuilding programme ) be re-allocated. The Bentley was subsequently shipped to Australia where it was painstakingly restored to original condition over a number of years. It was at this stage the engine was upgraded to 4.5 litre specification the radiator re-cored oil pump capacity increased and full flow filter installed and C-Type gearbox installed together with a modern clutch and lightened flywheel etc. The vendor returned the fully rejuvenated Chassis No.735 to the UK roads in April 2015 since when it has greatly benefited from several visits to Elmdown Engineering of Hungerford Berks who apart from a lot of fine tuning have fitted an overdrive unit Cibi lamps battery cut-out etc. The replica Vanden Plas body has been fashioned in aluminium over an American Oak frame and the car is now impressively presented with Bentley Racing Green coachwork teamed with Brown leather interior trim. This eye-catching vintage Bentley comes complete with full and half tonneau covers and combines a charming early history with modern upgrades to make it wholly manageable and enjoyable in modern motoring conditions as evidenced in its successful completion of the Alpine Trial in 2015. 88 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION 87 89 MOTOR CARS 88 C.1907 HOLSMAN MODEL 3 HIGH-WHEEL RUNABOUT ESTIMATE 10000 - 15000 The Holsman Automobile was what was known as a High-Wheeler - ie a vehicle designed to run along the muddy rutted roads of the great plains of America in the early 20th century. The model was the brainchild of prominent Chicago architect Henry K. Holsman who designed manufactured and sold the vehicle between 1901 and 1911. At the time the state of Illinois was renowned as the centre of motorcar invention and Holsman himself has been credited with initiating the use of a reverse gear. The Holsman Automobiles became very popular and were exported to places as far away as New Zealand and throughout their years of production remained true to the company motto High Wheels Travel All Roads Because All Roads Are Made To Be Travelled By High wheels . Though one of the smaller companies producing HighWheelers Holsman was certainly one of the best known and most successful and produced a total of around 2 500 examples which were considered the Cadillacs of their day. 1909 was the peak year of High-Wheeler sales during which no less than 41 companies were involved in their manufacture. However their popularity waned as fast as it had risen and by 1912 only four remained active and Holsman had already closed its doors. The example on offer is resplendent in Black inside and out the colour of the period. It is believed to date from circa 1907 and features a so-called Piano rather than earlier Curved body which is supported by longitudinal leaf springs that connect the front and rear axles. Power comes from a twin-cylinder engine that drives through a two-speed transmission that was originally adjoined to the axle via rope but these days utilises chain drive. The Runabout has clearly been the subject of an extensive older restoration and was purchased in America by the vendor. A very unusual proposition it comes without paperwork.

Though the chassis was relatively unremarkable for the period Percy Riley s 1087cc four-cylinder engine was way ahead of its time and featured a cross-flow cylinder head in which the valves were inclined at 45 degrees within hemispherical combustion chambers. Avoiding the complication and expense of overhead camshafts they were opened by short light pushrods operated by a pair of camshafts mounted high in the cylinder block. The unit was a revelation and not only powered Rileys to endless competition successes for years to come but formed the basis of the supercharged engines of the all-conquering ERA voiturettes. Even in standard form the efficient breathing of the little Riley unit ensured a spirited level of performance helping to make the 9 one of the best-selling models of light car produced by the British motor industry between the wars. Two fabric-bodied models were available at launch - the Monaco Saloon priced at 285 and a Four-Seat Tourer positioned at 235 contrary to the position today open-topped cars were then the cheapest form of fourwheeled motoring. The delightful Four-Seat Tourer on offer is a 1928 example that was discovered by the vendor in a parlous state on the streets of Islington North London in 1965. Having rescued the Riley he then restored it over the ensuing 43 years and has continued to maintain its originality to this day. He currently regards the retrimmed interior and engine - refurbished in 1984 and now just about bedded in - as very good and the Bodywork Blue over Black paintwork and transmission as good .

A more sophisticated and refined design than its forebears the newcomer benefited from the adoption of fourwheel disc brakes and a more generously proportioned cabin. Available with a variety of 3.4 litre or 3.8 litre DOHC straight-six engines (in differing states of tune) potential customers could also choose between fourspeed manual or three-speed automatic gearboxes. An effortless performer (contemporary road tests recorded top speeds of 130mph upwards) the XK150 did much to cement Jaguar s reputation as Britain s foremost sportscar manufacturer. Although the model could be ordered in standard trim the majority of customers seem to have opted for the factory-fitted Special Equipment (SE) pack which incorporated wire wheels front spotlights tuned B-type cylinder head and a twin exhaust system. Appearing in 1958 a year later than its Fixed Head Coupe and Drophead Coupe siblings the Roadster did without their token back seats. Decidedly more rakish looking thanks to a repositioned scuttle (moved four inches further back) and curved door tops it nevertheless boasted a proper hood and wind-up windows. Of the 2 267 Roadsters made just 93 were to right-hand drive specification. According to its accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust eCertificate this particular example - chassis S820090 - was manufactured on July 13th 1960. Among the very last right-hand drive Roadsters to emerge from Browns Lane (production ceased at chassis 820093) it was dispatched to Jaguar distributor Gilman & Co of Hong Kong the following month. A Special Equipment model complete with four-speed manual transmission the XK150 showed very little sign of corrosion by the time it entered the current ownership in 1985 a result no doubt of the former British colony s temperate climate. Living and working in Hong Kong at the time the vendor purchased the two-seater from marque enthusiast John Northwode Turner as a partially stripped restoration project. Drawing on local contacts he had AEL Ltd which serviced all the rolling stock at and on Kai Tak airport refurbish the chassis overhaul the original engine re-trim the interior and renew the hood tonneau cover. Renowned specialists Suffolk & Turley supplied the relevant trim kits while XK Engineering of Coventry assisted with sundry new engine internals. Local engineering firm Paul Gross Ltd of Sai Kung tracked down a number of new components such as disc brakes etc. Part of the Toyota Group Crown Motors helped rejuvenate the original body. Repainted in Old English White with Beige leather upholstery Dark Blue mohair hood and Black tonneau cover the two-seater also had its instruments overhauled by Vintage Restorations and a stainless steel exhaust fitted. Suitably mechanically and cosmetically refreshed chassis S820090 participated in the first and second ever Classic Car Rallies to the People s Republic of China during 1986 and 1987 which were organised and sponsored by the Classic Car Club of Hong Kong and Martell respectively. Taking to the famous Macau Grand Prix circuit as part of these events the XK150 was invited to contest the Supercar Race on one occasion and thus found itself dicing with modern Porsches and Ferraris (finishing 11th out of 31 entrants). A testament to Jaguar reliability the Roadster then contested the Classic Car Race at the same meeting immediately afterwards much to the displeasure of the Circuit President Repatriated and UK road registered for the first time some twenty-nine years ago the XK150 now presents as an older restoration. Starting readily upon inspection and proving decidedly un-temperamental whilst we photographed it the two-seater is understood to pleasingly retain its original chassis body engine and gearbox.

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 sportscar 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 torque on tap the Series III E-Type once again had 150mph in its sights. A revised wheelbase yielded better cabin space and in conjunction with wider front rear tracks new anti-dive front suspension geometry and fatter tyres gave improved road holding. Imbued with a more muscular stance thanks to its flared wheelarches reprofiled wings and larger grille the model also boasted vented disc brakes and a restyled interior. According to its accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate this particular example is not only finished in its original livery of Silver with Dark Blue upholstery but also able to boast matching chassis engine manual gearbox and body numbers. Supplied new to America the Jaguar was retained by its first owner for seven years before being sold to Dr Jack Frost who kept it in dry storage until February 1999. Thereafter the E-Type was purchased by Chuck Stork and treated to a meticulous two-year long restoration which he documented in great detail. As well as circa 100 before and after photographs the history file contains numerous invoices relating to the refurbishment and an article about the car that appeared in the Wisconsin Jaguar Newsletter during 2002. Four score sheets relating to Jaguar Clubs of North America (JCNA) concours competitions held between 2001 and 2010 show that the Roadster was awarded 99.54 99.94 99.88 and 99.73 points The car s impressive concours record is the reason that marque specialist XK Engineering advised the vendor to leave it in lefthand drive Federal specification. Some fifteen years after it was completed the two-seater s condition is a testament to the time and trouble that Mr Stork put into its rejuvenation. Starting readily upon inspection the Jaguar has recently been checked over and UK road registered as EWV 395L by XK Engineering. Displaying a highly credible but unwarranted 53 000 miles to its odometer and possessing a MOT certificate valid until August 2017 this decidedly smart E-Type V12 Roadster is worthy of close inspection. 91 REG NO CHASSIS EWV 395L 1S23070 95 MOTOR CARS 92 1979 ASTON MARTIN V8 VOLANTE 1 OF 439 EXAMPLES MADE ESTIMATE 160000 - 180000 96 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Launched at the October 1978 Birmingham Motor Show the Fourth Series or Oscar India V8 (Oscar India being AM factory shorthand for October Introduction) boasted a re-profiled power bulge bonnet subtly integrated rear lip spoiler and GKN alloy wheels. Little changed beneath its aluminium skin the model utilised the same independent coil-sprung front suspension De Dion rear axle four-wheel disc brakes and power assisted rack and pinion steering as its predecessors. Predominantly allied to three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission the Tadek Marek designed 5340cc DOHC V8 engine was fed via quad Weber carburettors. Thus equipped Autocar magazine found the Oscar India to be capable of 146mph and 0-60mph in 7.2 seconds. Cementing its Grand Tourer credentials the model featured a smart burr walnut dashboard door cappings and could be had in Fixed-Head or Convertible guises. Total carburettor-fed V8 Volante production amounted to just 439 cars (though the American market accounted for the vast majority). According to its accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate this particular example chassis 15075 - was completed on 1st May 1979 and dispatched to Reg Vardy Ltd some eight days later. Originally finished in Tourmaline Blue with Light Blue-piped Fawn leather upholstery (the same livery it pleasingly sports today) the Aston Martin s build specification also included a lockable fuel-filler cap lefthand electric door mirror and two detachable headrests. Acquired by the vendor with service and maintenance bills from Aston Martin main dealers and specialists that apparently totalled nearly 50 000 not to mention over 150 photographs detailing work done the car has since been treated to a re-spray in its original Tourmaline Blue and had its interior trim smartened etc. Highly presentable and mechanically well sorted this rare righthand drive carburettor-fed V8 Volante is offered for sale with BMIHT Certificate original handbook brochure fresh MOT certificate and extensive bills invoices dating back to the 1980s.

Notable as the last model to be signed off before Lagonda went into receivership manufacture recommenced during Autumn 1935 once LG Motors (Staines) Ltd had taken control but is thought to have accounted for just ten saloons. An evolution of the M45 incorporating lessons learnt from the sporting M45 Rapide the M45A utilised a modified version of the marque s proven 10-ft 9in wheelbase ZM chassis but with the engine set further forward so as to increase cabin space. The radiator and Girling brake system of the Rapide were adopted but otherwise the newcomer was mechanically more akin to the M45 (though it did also share the racier model s rocker cover). Powered by an unstressed Meadows 6ESC 4453cc OHV straight-six engine the M45A was reputedly capable of 95mph. Compared to the Silent Traveller ST34 saloon body fitted to the M45 the pillarless four-door ST64 body found on its successor was not only roomier but also boasted a host of detail changes including a larger more rounded boot reprofiled windscreen flush door hinges improved mouldings and restyled valanced wings (complete with a central ridge). Of the ten M45A saloons built during the Summer and Autumn of 1935 it is understood that just two are known to have survived. According to its chassis plate Z11408 began life as one of those extremely rare M45A ST64 pillarless saloons. A letter from the Lagonda Club confirms it was first registered on 1st July 1935 although it was not delivered to its first owner Viscount Monsell of Evesham until 8th November. Due to its Surrey registration number it is quite possible the car served as a Works demonstrator between first registration and its November delivery date. Bolton Meredith EyresMonsell 1st Viscount Monsell GBE PC had been a decorated Naval Commander during WW1 receiving the Order of the Nile from the Sultan of Egypt. He enjoyed a lengthy and successful political career serving as an MP for Evesham District from 1910 to 1936 and held the position of Chief Whip of the Conservative party until 1931 when he was appointed First Lord of the Admiralty. It is not known when he sold the car but by November 1955 it was in the ownership of a K A Targett of Chiswick and in 1970 was acquired by Tony Toffolo of Paignton Devon. According to Club records it was he who removed the original saloon body replacing it with touring coachwork. It is believed this is the coachwork worn by the car today. The work would appear to have been completed to a good standard and CPK 384 s appearance is both striking and extremely attractive. Finished in green with black seating and carpets aero screens and Rapide style exhaust complete its sporting character. In December 1984 the car was acquired by motor dealer Geoff Forty who sold it in April 1985 to a Mr H Pendlebury of Blackburn. By July 1990 it was in the ownership of a Miss Janet Simpson of Preston from whom it was purchased by the vendor s late-father in 2008. The engine currently fitted is numbered M45 15 and is understood to have originally been installed in chassis Z10510 before being repaired under warranty and then fitted into chassis Z10795 which is believed to have been subsequently broken up. Featured on the front cover of Lancashire Life magazine in December 2007 (a copy accompanies the car) it is understood to drive well with a good turn of speed although the exact current specification of the Meadows straight 6 OHV engine is unknown.

In 1985 it was confirmed as a 1910 build Renault Model BY by the late Anthony Ronald the then historian for Renault Fr res - a club for those owning pre-1940 Renault motorcars. The following year it was officially dated by the Veteran Car Club and comes complete with the resulting certificate. The Renault has been the subject of continual maintenance throughout the vendor s tenure during which time the rear pair of artillery wheels have been refurbished and new bearings installed in the gearbox and rear axle. A replacement radiator was fitted in 2004 while in 2006 the 4.4-litre engine was treated to a major overhaul during which new valves cast alloy pistons and crankshaft and big end bearings were installed the crankshaft journals cleaned up and the unit rebored. In deference to safety and modern day usage the Renault now features an electric starter motor and electric lights. The car is very smartly-presented and the vendor informs us that it s very fast and reliable and has never let him down . He considers the engine and electrical equipment to be excellent and the bodywork Bluepaintwork Black leather interior trim and four-speed manual transmission to all be in very good condition.

Estimated to be eighty percent new the model s 3164cc (hence 3.2 ) flat-six engine was credited with developing some 231bhp and 209lbft of torque. Allied to five-speed transmission it proved both rev-happy and flexible. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and 153mph the Carrera 3.2 was progressively developed over the course of its six-year production run and is now feted by many for being the last of the torsionbar suspended 911s.

Supplied new by Walton Ltd of Maidstone Kent on 10th March 1989 the 911 is understood to have covered just 69 000 miles during the intervening twenty-seven years (an average of 2 555 per annum). As a late Carrera 3.2 model F973 SJD features the sought after G50 five-speed manual gearbox. Stated to show no signs whatsoever of previous accident damage the Coupe is described by the vendor as being in excellent condition with regard to its bodywork original engine interior trim electrics and transmission while he considers its paintwork to be very good .

The last full service was carried out in 2015 but the front brake discs and pads have been replaced as recently as July this year. Finished in Metallic Green and trimmed in Black leather the sale car is one of just 60 such home market examples from a total run of 112 cars and reputedly one of only four GTAs finished in this discreetly-elegant colour. The vendor acquired the Aston in September 2014 and currently views the bodywork paintwork interior trim 420bhp 12-cylinder engine and five-speed Touchtronic transmission as all being in excellent order. With a 0-60mph capability of 5.1 seconds and (limited) top speed of 165mph readily on tap this is a British classic to savour and at 23 227 miles is barely run in. Complete with Sat Nav and MOT into September 2017 it represents a rare opportunity to acquire a princely example of one of the last of the V12 DB7s. Penned by Ian Callum the all new DB7 made its debut at the 1993 Geneva Salon where its svelte lines and attractive specification caused quite a stir. By the time it was replaced by the DB9 more than 7 000 examples had been manufactured - by far the highest production figure for any Aston made to that date. The V12 GT and GTA (when equipped with automatic transmission) versions of the V12 DB7 were introduced in 2002 and were essentially improved versions of the Vantage. They featured substantially updated suspension vented Brembo disc brakes and such pleasing cosmetic touches as mesh front grille bonnet vents boot spoiler alloy gear lever optional carbonfibre trim and restyled REG NO CHASSIS KXS 4 SCFAB12393K303817 alloy wheels. 102 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION ESTIMATE 35000 - 40000 1970 MASERATI INDY 4.2 97 1 OF JUST 440 EXAMPLES MADE REG NO CHASSIS EHJ 223H AM116 670 suspension a well-located live rear axle front rear anti-roll bars four-wheel ventilated disc brakes and recirculating-ball steering.

Superseded by later 4.7 and 4.9 variants just 440 4.2 litre examples were made. Reportedly imported by Melvyn Rutter (of Morgan fame) chassis AM116 670 is understood to have benefited from a partial restoration and repaint before being UK road registered as EHJ 223H on 24th July 1996. While more recent work is said to have included a top end engine overhaul refurbished engine bay refinished wheels and new tyres.

Their first monocoque design it also benefited from olio-pneumatic rear suspension power disc brakes and from 1968 GM s silken 400 series automatic gearbox. Such new technology did not encroach on the luxurious interior with its sumptuous leather hides rich wood veneers and deep lambswool carpets. Performance from the smooth 6230cc V8 engine (upgraded to 6750cc in 1970) was assured the car wafting forward on a seemingly unstoppable wave of torque. Still immensely cosseting to drive Shadows offer a genuinely different ownership experience to their mass made peers. According to its accompanying RREC copy chassis records this particular example - chassis number SRH 13549 - was built in accordance with Page 16 Issue 12 SVR.1067 of the Special Vehicles requirement brochure . Factory finished in Acrylic White with Black leather upholstery Grey Ambla headlining and Black carpets the luxury saloon was supplied new to Grassicks Garage Limited of Perth Scotland as a Trials Car on 27th June 1972. As well as Plain Sundym Glass throughout and an internally adjustable mirror to the driver s door optional equipment also included Automatic Speed Control (better known these days as cruise control). A letter on file from Tony Clark of Grassicks Ltd reveals that the Silver Shadow was sold to the internationally renowned football player George Best before the Scottish Rolls-Royce Bentley and Ferrari distributor had had the chance to open a Service Record for it. No stranger to publicity George Best and his new acquisition were photographed by the Daily Mirror in the showrooms of Ian Anthony Car Sales on 4th December 1972. The car has sported various registration numbers over the past forty-four years but on that occasion wore Acquired by its last registered keeper during 1994 chassis SRH 13549 has had some 22 000 spent on it over the last twenty-two years. Adorned with more aesthetically pleasing bumpers than their successors first series Silver Shadows have become increasingly collectible of late (with post 1970 cars boasting both the more powerful engine and smoother transmission). Although not as cosmetically sharp as it once was the Rolls-Royce possesses a current MOT certificate valid until 14th June 2017 and offers a new owner the chance of restoring it back to Best specification. Never one to hold on to cars or women for too long George Best had use of a 1971 Jaguar E-Type V12 Fixed Head Coupe at around the same time (that we coincidentally sold for 49 000 in October 2015). Both cars were automatics the transmission of choice for louche playboys but the Rolls-Royce s Automatic Speed Control gave it the edge in terms of sybaritic transport. Repainted since belonging to Best the luxury saloon has also gained a Black vinyl roof covering (a must have automotive accessory during the mid- late-1970s) and later-style integral reversing lamps. However the Silver Shadow still pleasingly retains its original steering wheel Black leather upholstery and Grey Ambla headlining etc. Thus any future custodian has the pleasure of knowing that he she is not only driving a car that George Best owned in his heyday but also sitting on the very same leather plates advertising Mr. Anthony s Manchester-based dealership. Mr. Best is understood to have been only too happy to promote his friend Mr. Anthony s business. The Acrylic White Rolls-Royce was also pictured outside Manchester United s Old Trafford grounds with its surprised owner turning round just as he was about to open the driver s door (doubtless in response to a shouted paparazzi request). 98 REG NO CHASSIS NMC 46K SRH13549 105 MOTOR CARS 99 2002 LE MANS SPORTS CAR COMPANY D-TYPE EVOCATION ESTIMATE 20000 - 25000 Original examples of Jaguar s Le Mans specification C and D-Type Jaguars rarely come to market these days and when they do these multi-million pound vehicles are way beyond the pockets of ordinary mortals. For this reason there has for some time been a thriving market in evocations. Among the businesses involved has been David Yoxall s Le Mans Sports Car Company which produced D-Type replicas in Westbury Wiltshire from 1997 to c.2000. The right-hand drive example offered is understood to have been built by them courtesy of an XJ6 Series II donor car that provided the major mechanical components including the all-round independent suspension rear subframe with inboard rear disc brakes 4.2 litre straight-six XK engine and fourspeed manual gearbox. Finished in Metallic Blue and trimmed in Dark-blue piped Cream-coloured upholstery this crowd-stopping two-seater additionally features knock-off Dunlop-style alloy wheels side exhaust engine-turned aluminium facia wood-rim steering wheel and a luggage locker secreted beneath the rear clam.

The 16 000 indicated miles is presumed to represent the total to date. KLM 517N is now being offered complete with a fresh MOT certificate and is deserving of a caring new home. The monocoque construction D-Types were produced by Jaguar Cars between 1954 and 1957 - records suggest a total of 18 factory versions and 53 customer ones.

It was based on a production motorcycle that was stretched courtesy of a tubular steel frame and then clothed in a strikingly aerodynamic fibreglass shell reminiscent of Bede s famous Bond plane. Power is supplied by a 400cc Yamaha motorcycle engine. It was first UK registered in May 1996 and has had five keepers since arriving on these shores.

Understood to be one of just two Pulses currently resident in the UK this enticing machine is in running order and the vendor hopes to have acquired a fresh MOT for it by the time of the sale. The indicated mileage of 16 500 is believed to be the total covered from new.

Blending speed with refinement in a way that few rivals could match it was powered by a 6230cc OHV V8 engine allied to automatic transmission. Trimmed with a superlative mix of sumptuous leather hides rich wood veneers and deep lambs wool carpets the model was every bit as luxurious as it was expensive. Despite being in production for five years just 606 MPW Two-Door Saloons are thought to have been made. Manufactured in March 1968 copies of factory records on file state that this right hand drive example was sold new by Jack Barclay in London to Melbray Group Limited of London SW1 believed for the use of Sir W.F. Beale. Factory warranty cards record the next owner as a Mr Frohlich of Mayfair who acquired the car in 1971. The enormous quantity of invoices in the voluminous history file reveal subsequent owners and in 1991 XBY 130F (as it was known then) was purchased by a RREC member in Sweden. Upon returning to the UK in 2015 the car was reported to have had a thorough engine overhaul by Bengt Stange and a respray in its original livery during 2012. There are many photographs showing the engine is various states of component form. Described by the vendor as being in very good condition in all respects the car has recently benefitted from having the rear bumper re-chromed.

Allied to a five-speed manual transmission it proved both rev-happy and flexible making the model reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds and a 153mph top speed. In order to cope with the increased performance the brakes were enlarged and the top two gear ratios slightly raised. Examples from 1987 onwards had the stronger G50 gearbox in which reverse was located beside the first ratio. An optional Sport pack became available during 1984 and included a deeper front valance tea tray rear spoiler stiffer Bilstein dampers and 16-inch Fuchs forged alloy wheels with black centres.

Eager to capitalize on this success (and also to comply with the event s homologation requirements) Healey persuaded BMC to list a Le Mans kit (twin 1.75 inch SU carburettors high-lift camshaft revised distributor advance curve and stronger valve springs etc) in its parts catalogue for 1954. Known officially as part P-280 it was available to fit on new or old models alike and by dealers or private individuals. Adopted by BMC themselves (together with the addition of a louvred bonnet complete with leather strap) for the 100M version of the BN2 100 4 introduced at the 1955 London Motor Show it has remained a popular modification package ever since.

Like the XK150 before it it was born of Jaguar s competition successes on the race tracks of Europe - this was no ordinary motor car. The E-Type or XK-E as it was known in the USA made its debut at the 1961 Geneva Salon where its unique combination of grace and pace stole the show. From birth the car was available as a Fixed Head Coupe or a two-seat Roadster. Like the XK120 at launch the new Jaguar was the fastest production car of its time - its 3.8-litre straight six engine allowing a 0-60mph acceleration time of around seven seconds and a top speed of circa 150mph. Despite this the engine size was increased from 3.8 to 4.2-litres in October 1964 and with the change came a sweeter all-synchromesh gearbox better brakes and more comfortable seats. The Series 2 models introduced in 1969 are distinguished by their lack of headlamp covers enlarged front air intake repositioned front indicators and tail lights wrap-around rear bumper twin-electric fans uprated brakes and refashioned facia and seats. This LHD roadster was originally sold new in Canada via distributor British Motor Holdings and we understand had been the subject of a restoration some six or seven years prior to its acquisition by the vendor. Finished in green with retrimmed light tan interior and black hood this smart-looking E-Type is running on SU carburettors and is UK registered. REG NO CHASSIS TTU 522H 1R12965 116 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION ESTIMATE 30000 - 35000 1965 MERCEDES-BENZ 220 SEB COUPE 112 REG NO CHASSIS EDC 209C 11102120072330 Utilising a 5.0 V8 and gearbox sourced from an SEC the suspension was modified to cope with semi-trailing arms from a W126 replacing the original swing axles at the rear whilst the shell was strengthened with a special cross member. The interior retains its period charm with the original handbrake lever. An electronic speedo and rev counter plus a later W126 console hinting at the dramatic changes under the skin. According to a 2008 article on the car in Mercedes Enthusiast magazine the then owner claimed it would cruise at 100mph at just 3000rpm had a theoretical top speed of 140mph and that he was enjoying an average 28mpg The history file dates back to 1989 with old MOT s and several invoices and some details of the restoration. The vendor also advises that according to an old sales advert for that car it appears to have previously belonged to a President of the Mercedes-Benz Club UK. Finished attractively in dark green with caramel leather interior this useable classic sits on 3.5-litre alloy wheels and is offered with Swansea V5 document. It is expected to possess a fresh MoT by the time of sale. A desirable enough classic design in its own right the original Mercedes 220 SE Coupe provided good levels of comfort and performance by the standards of the day. However feeling that the model had always cried out for a larger engine a previous owner proprietor of London based Citroen SM specialists Andrew Brodie Engineering set about turning this RHD example into something far superior and capable of everyday use with the works reputed to have cost some 30 000 at the time. 117 MOTOR CARS 113 1930 TALBOT AM90 CLOSE-COUPLED DROPHEAD COUPE ESTIMATE 80000 - 100000 118 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION The 1930 Le Mans race is often remembered for the struggle in which one Mercedes defeated the Blower Bentleys but was itself vanquished by the 6 s whereas the most telling and also the most significant performance historically came from the brace of Talbot 90s which finished third and fourth ahead of all but two Speed Sixes. Using a plain unsupercharged production engine of only 2 litres with pushrod overhead valves not overhead camshaft and fitted with a single carburettor they beat every Bentley below 6 litres together with the 38 250 Mercedes Earl Howe s supercharged twin-cam Alfa Romeo and a 5-litre Stutz. Somewhat naturally they won the Indice de Performance. The great Charles Faroux called their performance stupefiant and he was right. Not only were the two Talbots tremendously fast and reliable they were practically silent as well making no more fuss than a rolled umbrella (D.B. Tubbs The Talbots 14 45 - 110 Profile Publications). Capitalising on the success of the Fox & Nicholl Team Cars at Le Mans Talbot are understood to have built some 216 examples of the 90. Available with a choice of wheelbase lengths the model was underpinned by a substantial ladder frame chassis featuring allround leaf-sprung suspension and four-wheel drum brakes. Developing up to 93bhp its advanced 2276cc straight-six OHV engine was allied to four-speed manual transmission (though later versions could be had with a four-speed pre-selector gearbox). Potential buyers could choose from a range of factory bodystyles or employ the services of an independent coachbuilder. Regardless of the coachwork worn most 90s were capable of the 90mph top speed that their name implied. Mr Gray was the Sunbeam Talbot Darracq Register s secretary and there is a photo on file of him showing none other than Georges Roesch over GP 6096 (the 90 engine was reputedly Roesch s favourite among all those he designed for Talbot). Mr Theobald took the Close Coupled Drophead Coupe to Rhodesia in 1968 and thereafter it relocated to South Africa. A genuine AM90 Speed Model GP 6096 is understood to be one of just twelve such chassis to be fitted with Close Coupled Drophead Coupe coachwork by Offord and indeed the sole known survivor (although a very similar car which was built under sub-contract by Carlton still exists). According to its copy factory build record chassis 30000 was erected on 1st January 1931 and as such is accepted by the Vintage Sports Car Club as being of Vintage manufacture (which in turn allows it to run with other pre-1931 machinery in VSCC events). The AM90 is accompanied by a very large and interesting history file which chronicles the last six decades of its life. Thought to have belonged to Mr D. English during the mid-1950s other keepers have included Mr Williamson Mr John Gray Mr Brian Fidler Mr Peter Theobald Mr Peter Sutcliffe Mr Gillie Andrew Mr Tim Wadeson Mr Michael Manning and since 2007 the vendor. An understandably popular choice with sporting motorists the Talbot enjoyed continued competition success as a privateer entry at events such as the Irish GP Ards TT and Brooklands thanks to the efforts of Bill Esplen ( GN 5872 ) and the Burt brothers ( GO 1568 ) etc. 113 REG NO CHASSIS GP 6096 30000 119 MOTOR CARS 113 Mr Sutcliffe used the four-seater for a long distance rally during his brief tenure (1977-1978) and Mr Wadeson finally repatriated the AM90 to the UK in the early 2000s. Substantially improved during the seller s custodianship chassis 30000 has benefited from a thorough engine overhaul (reground crankshaft with shell bearings Arrow rods new pistons new timing gears and new oil pump gears etc) plus the installation of a down draught carburettor freeflow exhaust and new dynastart bearings (the unit having been otherwise rejuvenated for a previous keeper) all of which was carried out by marque specialists Arthur Archer and Foppe d Hane. Further boasting a New Zealand cartridge oil filter conversion solid state voltage regulator correct complete new wet radiator and halogen headlights the Talbot was entrusted to marque specialist Ian Polson for a back axle refurbishment and new petrol tank. Foppe d Hane restored the wooden body support frame as necessary before the coachwork was treated to a bare metal respray in Dark Blue. Re-upholstered in contrasting Light Blue the interior is protected by a new Black double duck hood. Riding on fresh tyres this rare and potent Roesch Talbot is only being offered for sale because a shoulder injury makes its right-hand manual gearchange awkward for the vendor. A delightful and seemingly very well sorted motorcar it has conveyed him on numerous STD Register Tours around the UK and to Ireland and France etc. Offered for sale with the aforementioned history file bills substantiating the work undertaken and an original first edition handbook and spares list GP 6096 is summed up as a very rare and very usable car with wind-up windows and relaxed cruising ability . 120 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION 113 121 MOTOR CARS 114 1934 ALVIS SPEED 20 SC VANDEN PLAS-STYLE TOURER ESTIMATE 45000 - 55000 122 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Introduced at the 1934 London Motor Show the Speed 20 SC was among a new breed of Alvis cars that combined high performance (long a recognised marque virtue) with luxury and refinement. Based around a sturdy cruciform-braced ladder-framed chassis equipped with sizable fourteen-inch drum brakes and jelly mould wire wheels it boasted such technological novelties as independent transverse-leaf front suspension and synchromesh on all (four) forward gears. Powered by a smooth but free-revving 2762cc OHV straight-six engine featuring dual magneto coil ignition triple SU carburettors and an aluminium crankcase the model was reputedly capable of 89mph. A corollary of its low-slung stance and long bonnet line the Speed 20 SC proved an ideal canvas for the coachbuilder s art. Although the majority were bodied to factory-approved designs by Charlesworth and Cross & Ellis a select few received rather more bespoke treatment. Chassis 11940 was originally bodied as a limousine by Lancefield and supplied new to Albert Testemale Esq of Surrey on 23rd November 1934. Registered to John James Richardson Esq of Selby a decade later the Alvis remained in his care for forty-four years. Barn stored for the last thirty-six of those BLE 892 was purchased from Mr Richardson s estate by Keith Taylor Esq during 1988. Having discarded the original coachwork because it was beyond economical repair Mr Taylor embarked upon a major chassis up restoration. Able to carry out all the mechanical work himself he commissioned a replacement Tourer body based on Vanden Plas Speed 20SC design for the 1935 model year before advertising the car as an incomplete but running project in late 1992. Some three years and 24 000 later new owner Chris Watson Esq finally succeeded in returning BLE 892 to the road thanks to the assistance of marque specialist Red Triangle and Rob Green of Gloria Coachworks who fitted the more flowing Continentalstyle wings etc at the rate of 12 per hour Now offered for sale by the executors of the late C.J. Trigwell Esq who bought it from Mr Watson via H&H s April 11th 2001 auction for 42 000 the Alvis appears to have been well kept ever since. Although its refurbishment was completed some twenty-one years ago the overall impression is of a highly presentable motor car that the executors variously rate as being in very good (engine electrics gearbox paintwork) or excellent (bodywork interior trim) condition. An engineer and garage owner by profession Mr Trigwell was also an Alvis enthusiast owning several examples of the marque. Understood to be a matching numbers car with regard to its major mechanical components the four-seater also sports Brooklands aeroscreens sidescreens and a tonneau cover. The history file comprises a copy of the original factory build sheet continuation buff logbook (in Mr Richardson s name) restoration photos and numerous receipts invoices. 114 REG NO CHASSIS BLE 892 11940 123 MOTOR CARS 115 1969 ASTON MARTIN DBS VANTAGE SPECIFICATION AS FEATURED IN CHANNEL 4 S FOR THE LOVE OF CARS ESTIMATE 160000 - 180000 124 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Introduced at the October 1967 Motor Show the DBS broke important new ground for Aston Martin. Although similar to that of the concurrent DB6 its steel platform chassis used a longer wheelbase repositioned front crossmember and wider track to arrive at perfect 50 50 weight distribution. Further enhanced by the adoption of de Dion rear suspension located via a Watt linkage and with standardised power steering the newcomer was widely praised for its polished ride and handling. Styled in-house by William Towns with clear transatlantic and Italianate overtones the aluminium-bodied four-seater exuded a road presence that few rivals caught in its quad headlights could match. Although intended to be the first V8-powered Aston a series of teething troubles with the new powerplant meant that the DBS went into production with the proven Tadek Marek-designed 3995cc DOHC straight-six. Credited with developing 282bhp and 288lbft (or 325bhp and 290lbft in Vantage tune wearing three Webers) this legendary powerplant was allied to either five-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission. Reputedly capable of over 140mph the DBS was phased out in 1972 by which time just 787 are thought to have been made. A star of the small screen chassis DBS 5436 RAC famously had an entire episode of Channel 4 s popular TV series For the Love of Cars dedicated to it. Overseen by Ant Anstead and his team at Evanta Motors the restoration was completed within an almost impossibly tight timeframe. Stripped of its mismatched red and white paint JRA 615H underwent various chassis and bodywork repairs on a jig before being resprayed in Aston Martin Olive Green Metallic (the same hue sported by James Bond s DBS in the film On Her Majesty s Secret Service). Like many of us who watched the programme the vendor took quite a shine to the reborn JRA 615H and paid some 173 400 to acquire it in January 2015. Although the DBS looked stunning he felt that a marque specialist with proven experience of the model could improve it still further and so instructed Oselli to work their magic. Some 78 000 later the Aston Martin has been debugged and fine-tuned to the seller s satisfaction Now every bit as good as it looks this famous Aston Martin is offered for sale with UK V5C Registration Document MOT certificate valid until August 2017 and history file. Re-trimmed in contrasting Ox Blood Red leather upholstery the interior also gained a refurbished dashboard refinished wood rim steering wheel and new carpets. Entrusted to renowned marque specialist RS Williams the original DOHC straight-six engine was enlarged to 4.2 litres and uprated to Vantage specification with triple Weber carburettors. To make better use of the increased power and torque on tap the decision was made to convert the Aston Martin from automatic to Tremec T5 manual transmission. Other enhancements included the fitment of new MWS 15inch wire wheels shod with Pirelli Cinturato tyres Koni rear shock absorbers and higher performance brake pads. 115 REG NO CHASSIS JRA615H DBS 5436 RAC 125 MOTOR CARS 116 1976 PORSCHE 911 2.7 ESTIMATE 30000 - 40000 We are indebted to the vendor for the following description Launched in 1963 it wasn t until 1974 that the first big change to the appearance of the Porsche 911 occurred. The US federal government announced they wanted to clean up emissions and increase crash protection for cars sold in their states. Porsches response was to fit larger impact bumpers and a new range of engines with increased capacity to 2.7 litres and K Jetronic fuel injection. The standard models actually produced slightly less BHP than the mechanically injected cars they replaced but offered smoother performance with improved torque fuel economy and reliability. The slim body and chrome details of the predecessor remained in standard models whilst the interior was enhanced for increased comfort. For 1976 a 3.0 version was produced called the Carrera 3.0 and on the sport variants the chrome details were replaced with coloured coded headlamp bezels and black window frames which instantly gave the 911 a sportier look. Fast forward 40 years and good examples of these slim body 911s offer period looks with smooth reliable power units ensuring dependable classic motoring for a fraction of the outlay of their predecessors. On sale today is a late model narrow body LHD 911 finished in its original rare colour of Ascot Green with optional black sport look. Supplied new in 1976 it featured a galvanised body and was imported to the UK from Germany in 1982. Although the current mileage of 67 089KMS (42 000 miles) cannot be warranted MOTs and service history with the car suggest it has covered no more 19 000 miles since importation. Most relevantly the engine received a top end rebuild and a new clutch in September 1990 and the car is believed to have covered just 26 000KMS (16 000 miles) since. The 911 is supplied with 12 months MOT and will be driven to the sale. All gears function correctly the engine runs at the recommended oil pressure and the vendor describes this as a very solid 911 with good paintwork and mechanicals with an excellent black interior.

This is still running in with less than 500 miles being covered since installation. The carburettors were also reconditioned and the car boasts an electric cooling fan whilst the ignition has been upgraded with an electronic distributor 123 ignition coil and silicone plug leads. In 2014 a new fuel tank high According to its accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate this original RHD UK supplied E-Type was manufactured on 19 February 1965 and sold via Henlys a month later to a Mr H Gogard of South Harrow Middlesex. We understand that since that time the car has had just four previous keepers and that the mileage of c.66 300 miles recorded is genuine. In storage between 1998 and 2008 the car was then extensively restored by its previous owner with most of the work being carried out between 2012 and 2015. pressure fuel pump and stainless exhaust were fitted. Attention to the braking system included the fitment of Cooper Craft aluminium 4 pot calipers new master cylinder and brake pipes. The limited slip differential and drive shafts were also overhauled. The brightwork has been re-chromed and a new windscreen rear screen chrome wire wheels and tyres have been fitted. The interior has been re-trimmed in grey leather by Rawles Motor Sport at a cost of some 6 000. Offered with a comprehensive collection of invoices for the restoration photographs assorted old MoTs and current MoT to February 2017 this is an extremely attractive and enviably well specified E-Type. 127 MOTOR CARS 118 1947 BENTLEY MK VI PARK WARD DROPHEAD COUPE According to its Bentley Works instruction sheet of May 30 1947 chassis B.132.BH was originally assigned to the company s American agent J S Inskip Inc and the chosen specification suggests it could have been destined for the New York Motor Show of that year - a very similar example is known to have been displayed there previously. However it seems there was a change of plan and that name was subsequently crossed off the history card and replaced by that of G L Gambanis c o S G Embiricos Ltd of London. This was the UK headquarters of the Embiricos shipping line a massive Greek family empire among whose number was the amateur racing driver Andr Embiricos who with Bentley s encouragement funded the building of the Georges Paulin-styled streamlined 4.25-Litre Bentley of 1939 that s become so famous as to be universally known as the Embiricos Bentley . Gambanis a director of S G Embiricos evidently sought similar levels of perfection and the order for B.132. BH was revised better to suit the roads and climate of Europe than Eastern USA. The chosen coachbuilder was still Park Ward but the revised list of special features now included speedometer in kilometres double filament headlamp bulbs separate central lamp switch a second wing-mounted wheel carrier snow chains locks to the bonnet and petrol filler stainless steel stone guards two suit cases loose covers for the seats doors and hood GB plate AA RAC and Greek club badges Ace wheel covers cigar lighter. The car crossed from Dover to Boulogne on the SS Dinard on August 9 1948 and was received by the owner 18 days later. The final invoice including tax was for 5 462 12s 2d. The factory records show subsequent owners as being H Gordon Bowsher of Stockbridge Hants (March 1957) D J Ashbourne South Benfleet Essex (November 1958) and M I Dorman Brailsford of Crookham Hants ESTIMATE 90000 - 110000 (June 1966). At some stage after this JYN 279 seems to have found its way the USA where it ultimately spent 20 years vegetating in a Kentucky apple orchard and it was marque specialists The Real Car Company who repatriated it in 1994 and from whom it was purchased by A D Popple of Glasgow. It then underwent a muchneeded restoration courtesy of Classic Restorations (Scotland) Ltd of Alyth Perthshire before being acquired by the vendor from their stand at the RollsRoyce Enthusiasts Club premier event of 2009. It has subsequently been maintained for the owner by Bentley specialist Harvey Wash of Colchester. This very desirable and eminently practical righthand drive Drophead Coupe is now beautifully presented with lustrous Grey coachwork Black hood and contrasting Blue hide interior trim and carpets. The odometer currently registers an unwarranted 79 000 kilometers and the only obvious departure from the car s original specification are the sympathetically styled flashing indicators. The Bentley is now offered complete with various items of correspondence copies of the original chassis cards and factory records Harvey Wash invoices photos of the extensive restoration original registration ( JYN 279 ) etc. and is no doubt capable of providing a lucky new keeper with many years of enjoyable reliable motoring. Developed from its short-lived MKV model Bentley s MKVI was the company s first post-war offering and the first to be offered with standard factory coachwork. However there was still the option of purchasing a chassis to be clothed by one s coachbuilder of choice and of the 5 202 examples made between 1946 and 1952 1 012 featured Saloon or Drophead bodies from one of a dozen or so recognised Carrozzerias of which Park Ward was a favourite and of course a subsidiary of Rolls-Royce itself.

Chief among these was the adoption of rack and pinion steering. Though the fitment of telescopic shock absorbers (in place of the XK120 s antiquated lever arm dampers) also had a noticeably beneficial effect on handling roadholding. With its engine and bulkhead repositioned three inches further forward the new model enjoyed a notably roomier cabin (the fixed and drophead coupe variants gaining occasional rear seats as a result). Available in standard special equipment or special equipment plus C-type cylinder head guises power and torque outputs ranged from a quoted 190bhp 210lbft to 210bhp 213lbft. Distinguished by its one-piece bumpers and simpler more imposing radiator grille the XK140 was among the fastest cars of its generation. Reputedly capable of over 130mph it focused public consciousness on Jaguar s continued success at Le Mans (the Coventry marque winning the endurance classic in 1951 1953 1955 1956 and 1957). According to its accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate chassis 804750DN was supplied new via Henlys of London. Road registered as NBL 232 on 6th September 1956 by Berkshire County Council a photocopied logbook on file indicates that the Jaguar had relocated to Buckinghamshire some six years later. Belonging to Barry A. Tanner Esq at the time the ESTIMATE 55000 - 65000 XK140 subsequently passed to long-term custodian Martin Sambrook Esq. who treated it to an extensive photographically documented chassis up restoration during the early 1990s. Purchased by the late C.J. Trigwell Esq from John Parker Esq of Fordingbridge on 14th May 2007 for 50 000 the Fixed Head Coupe appears to have been well looked after ever since and shows just two former keepers on its V5C Registration Document. More than twenty years after its refurbishment was completed the Jaguar now has some cosmetic flaws. However the overall impression is of a presentable motor car that the late Mr Trigwell s executors variously rate as being in very good (engine paintwork) or excellent (bodywork electrics four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox interior trim) condition. Invoices on file from marque specialist Twyford Moors show that Mr Trigwell had the XK140 fitted with EZ electric power steering and seatbelts to enhance its usability in modern traffic.

The known history of this lovely vintage Vauxhall begins with a George Batten of Muwillumbah New South Wales. It subsequently dwelt with a Ray Jurd in Redland Bay Queensland before being discovered in a Brisbane garage workshop in need of comprehensive restoration. Trevor Poulsen initially felt the task was beyond his ability but later succumbed to the challenge and set to work in 1986 in concert with the garage s Bill Cardno. The project was apparently completed before the Vauxhall arrived on these shores but pretty much as soon as he acquired the vehicle in 2009 the vendor set about further improving BF 4431 and has invested 20 000 in the last six years to achieve its current very smart level of presentation. During 2009 2010 the bodywork was fully stripped and repainted in two-tone Grey the engine thoroughly overhauled and new clutch and starter installed. He now classes the bodywork paintwork Grey leather interior six-cylinder engine and four-speed manual transmission as all being in very good condition. The Roadster wears a Holden two-seater fastback body complete with dickey and is similar to those found on Chevrolets and Pontiacs of the same era. It is believed the car is one of only three such 20 60s still in existence and the vendor is now offering it complete with V5C and Dating Certificate courtesy of The Society of Automotive Historians in Britain.

Though the newcomer was intended to appeal to owner drivers many examples were in fact sold to customers with chauffeurs. Power came from an enlarged version of the straight-six unit used in the 20 hp. Now of 3699cc it made for swifter acceleration and a higher top speed - up to 75mph depending on the chosen body. The four speed manual gearbox featured the manufacturer s traditional right-hand change and was equipped with synchromesh on the top two ratios from 1932 onwards. The substantial chassis sported rigid axles front and rear suspended on semi-elliptic leaf springs. The four-wheeled braking was mechanically servo assisted. In 1936 the company opted to increase performance once more further enlarging the engine to 4257cc to create the so-called 25 30 of which 1201 examples were made before the model was superseded by the Wraith in 1938. Like most Rolls-Royces the 25 30 starred on the silver screen most notably in The Naked Truth and Death on the Nile . This charming 25 30 is finished in silver matched to a red leather interior and features Park Ward limousine coach work to body number 4225.

The slim body and chrome details of the predecessor remained in standard models whilst the interior was enhanced for increased comfort. The 911 offered here today is an early 1974 LHD Coupe originally supplied to dry state California. A certificate of authenticity from Porsche confirms it is a matching number car and importation documentation confirms that was officially imported to the UK October 2014 although the 67 293 recorded miles cannot be warranted. The vendor describes the body shell as in very good original rust free condition particularly in the key weak areas of a 911 they also describe the interior to be in the same condition. Our vendor also confirms that the car drives very well and this is supported by recent expenditure in the UK including a complete brake overhaul top end engine re-build and 5th gear synchro replaced in the gearbox in 2015.

Still the only Jaguar model to have won the Monte Carlo Rally it proved equally effective at Silverstone (taking top honours in the International Trophy meeting for five years in a row) and even contested the 1953 Mille Miglia. According to its accompanying Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate chassis 717378 was manufactured on 27th August 1953. Initially finished in Black with Red leather upholstery the MkVII left Browns Lane barely a week later. Supplied new via Coombs & Sons of Guildford to Captain J.R. Strayan of Sunningdale Berkshire the Jaguar is rumoured to have participated in the RAC British International Rally and indeed comes with a plaque issued to competitor number 136. It has also been suggested that the sports saloon served as a diplomatic vehicle in America for several years. However in the absence of hard evidence the vendor gives little credence to these stories. Purchased by its previous keeper at the famous Hershey Swap Meet chassis 717378 was repatriated during 2012. Yet to be restored the MkVII shows a highly credible but unwarranted 66 000 miles to its odometer. The interior upholstery is self-evidently original and the paint looks to have been untouched for decades. Commenting on TPG 638 the seller notes that the 3.4 litre engine is one of the best I have ever driven and the Moss gearbox is quiet. The bodywork is original and sound. I would think it must be one of the best original cars available in the UK at the moment .

These were dubbed Scalded Cats and in the mid-1960s Robin Moore started to plan a similar car based on a R-Type Chassis. He was working in the experimental department of Rolls-Royce at the time and an internal memo dated August 1965 sees him asking if any ex-test cars would become available. This plan did not come to anything with the acquisition of an S1 Continental Convertible in the late 1960s consuming all available time and cash and the collapse of Rolls-Royce and his move to Surrey to work for W. S. Atkins closing off further progress. In the mid-1980s he had bought a Harry Rose-bodied MkVI Special and his interest in a B80-engined special was reignited. He acquired a Thorneycroft Nubian Fire Engine for its powerplant and an R-Type that had rotten coachwork but a sound chassis and running gear was also sourced. The body was stripped off the Bentley and work started on modifications to the chassis. The cruciform was cut and the front section moved back in the chassis by twelve inches. The front chassis side rails were extended and reinforced to provide space for the longer engine. All of the running gear was overhauled and meticulously reinstated. An elegant open tourer body was designed and commissioned in traditional ash framing and aluminium panels and the car was completed in late 1992. During the development a B81 with its larger capacity of 6.52litres had been found and this replaced the B80. The R-Type automatic gearbox was retained and an R-Type Continental back axle ratio fitted which with the 17-inch wheels provides relaxed cruising. A full and detailed history is provided with the car and it is hoped to possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale. However the B81 engine that had been fitted was from an army training establishment and it became clear that it had had a hard life. In 2008 the opportunity came up to buy a brand new unused B81G which is the variant of the B81 designed to run on propane or natural gas. It therefore has a much higher compression ratio increased from 6.4 1 to 8.0 1 which modern fuels can run without any issue and provides a further boost in output to ensure that it is in Rolls-Royce terminology adequate (a standard B81 unit is estimated to develop 220bhp and 330lbft of torque). Used and enjoyed for numerous trips around the UK the Special also ventured as far afield as South Africa for the Bentley Drivers Club s 2003 tour of that country which saw participants cover circa 4 000 miles At this stage he was persuaded that an elegant blue and grey colour scheme was preferable to the bright red he had envisaged to fit with the name. 124 REG NO CHASSIS PMB 273 B266SR 137 MOTOR CARS 125 1952 CADILLAC SERIES 62 CONVERTIBLE ESTIMATE 44000 - 48000 With their competitors slow to react after WW2 Cadillac seized the initiative. Introduced in 1948 the marque s aeronautically inspired tail-fin motif was the work of Harley Earl-trained stylist Franklin Q. Hershey. An immediate trend-setter it was joined some twelve months later by an all-new overhead valve V8 engine. Engineered by Ed Cole Jack Gordon and Harry Barr this 331 cu in (5.4 litre) unit was smaller more powerful and almost 200lbs lighter than its predecessor. Boasting wedge-shape combustion chambers slipper pistons and hydraulic valve lifters it developed 160bhp in standard tune and soon found favour among the competition fraternity. The third generation Series 62 accounted for 78% of total Cadillac sales in 1952. Imported from the USA in 2013 judging by its appearance this extremely smart example has obviously been subject to a previous restoration which would appear to have been to a high standard. The white paintwork presents extremely well whilst the red interior looks barely used. The engine bay is prepared to an equal standard.

Based on a home market Series III V12 Coupe donor albeit with so much new metalwork added that little of the original car was re-used the re-engineered Roadster was fitted with a more powerful fuel-injected Jaguar XJ-S V12 5.3 litre engine allied to automatic transmission. As well as the more modern powerplant the two-seater had attention paid to its power steering suspension and brake systems. Riding on wider than standard wheels tyres the uprated Jaguar was re-trimmed in a fetching combination of Light Grey and Dark Blue and even treated to a bespoke leather hood cover. Having covered just 1 200 miles since its reconfiguration was completed the E-Type remains highly presentable. Starting readily upon inspection and forming part of a private marque collection for the past four years the two-seater is currently undergoing a cherished number plate transfer. Seemingly well suited to long distance motoring this special Roadster is offered for sale with a substantial lever arch file full of receipts chronicling its refurbishment MOT certificate valid until June 2017 and numerous photos. One of the all-time great production engines Jaguar s SOHC V12 was derived from its cancelled XJ13 sports racer project. Eerily smooth and effortlessly powerful it gave the E-Type a new lease of life. No ordinary E-Type V12 Roadster this particular example is the result of a major restoration and upgrade programme that was undertaken during the late 1990s at a rumoured cost of well over 100 000 (a still impressive sum today but gargantuan at the time) Subsequently featured on the 139 MOTOR CARS 127 1953 CHRYSLER NEW YORKER TOWN & COUNTRY WAGON ESTIMATE 22000 - 28000 Relatively little is known about the Stateside history of this delightful example of 1950s Americana though it is initially believed to have been employed by the manufacturer to introduce the dealers to the concept of the Station Wagon. It then formed part of the factory museum until purchased by a private collector. The Wagon was certainly an expensive option and it is thought only 1 400 were ultimately built of which the one offered is a rare and extremely original surviving example that has covered just 35 400 miles from new. It was first UK registered in 2009 when in the care of a Mrs Caroline Rosemary Kisko and has had only one further keeper since who acquired the car in May 2013. It is powered by a 331ci Firepower Hemi V8 engine that drives through Chrysler s patented Fluid Drive semi-automatic transmission. The vehicle is presented in its original livery of Brown over Beige and trimmed in perfectly patinated faux crocodile leather. The load area is a wonderful mix of highly polished wood and chrome ribbing while the facia s a sea of ornate controls including those for the factory-fitted heater and radio. The steering wheel has the words Power Steering inset into the centre just in case you were in any doubt the car featured such technology. The Chrysler also sports power brakes and power windows and rides on its original wire wheels - an option of the period - shod with White walled tyres. The only non-original features of note are the bumpers which are Chrysler Imperial ones.

She took it to Australia where it was exchanged for a V8-engined MG. The Healey 100 4 was designed by Donald Healey s eponymous company and assembled by Austin at Longbridge using Austin A90 Atlantic mechanicals and bodies crafted by Jensen Motors.

With the reported 462bhp produced from its twin turbo flat six engine being transferred to the road through the rear wheels only (the Turbo model had four wheel drive) performance was electrifying with 60mph being achieved from rest in just under 4 seconds and a top speed of about 198mph.

The total of the two-page invoice was a generous 131 710. The purchaser resided in Bayswater West London and was very much a Porsche enthusiast who raced a modern 911 but despite having his own workshop to maintain his racing car he entrusted the supplying dealer s Reading workshops to maintain the car for the first four annual services and Porsche Hatfield for the 2006 and 2007 services. Thereafter he had the car maintained in his own workshop and transferred the registration into the name of his racing team in March 2013. As well as the aforementioned invoices the history file also contains many maintenance invoices many expired MOT certificates and the hand book pack. With only a reported 129 GT2 models imported by Porsche into the UK when new of which apparently only 16 were to Club Sport specification this one owner car has a super provenance and is described by the vendor as being excellent in all respects.

A development of the pre-War 230 model it was initially powered by a 1.8-litre version of the in-line four cylinder M136 engine seen in 1.7-litre guise in the 170V. The enlarged unit now produced some 52 hp (38kW) driving through a four-speed all synchromesh gearbox also seen in the 170V. Top speed was now in the region of 76mph. Unlike the 170V the front wheels were attached using coil springs double wishbones and a stabilizer bar in place of the former s lateral leaf spring arrangement. Despite suffering heavy damage from Allied bombing during WW2 after the end of hostilities the Mercedes factory was fortunate not to be under Soviet control as happened to many of its pre-War competitors and was thus able to resume the business of building cars as early as May 1946. Following recommencement of production initially only saloon coachwork was available on its products. However with the introduction of the 170S they began to offer a wider range of body styles including a two-seat Cabriolet A and four-seat Cabriolet B as offered here satisfying a need from a growing number of buyers whose economic lot was improving and who once again wished to buy more luxurious cars. Remaining in production until its replacement by the 170 Sb in 1952 some 31 000 units of the 170 S were built in both saloon and cabriolet form with most unsurprisingly in the mainly austere economic environment following the War being saloons. Finished most attractively in cream black with cream interior black hood and black carpets we are informed this fine example has been treated to an extensive restoration for which photographic images of the works undertaken are on file. The vendor currently rates the bodywork paintwork engine transmission electrics and interior as very good whilst the car registers some 58 000 km on its odometer.

Engineering Co. Ltd. drew its name from the initials of its founders - Major Ted Halford (a contributor to the Vale Special project) Guy Robins (formerly of Trojan) and Ron Godfrey (the G in GN and the Godfrey in Godfrey & Proctor). The newcomer initially operated from the Mid-Surrey Gear Company in Norbiton and the design of its products was clearly influenced by the GN and Frazer-Nash motorcars in which Godfrey had previously been involved. The first offering was a traditionally-styled open two-seater sports car with front-mounted 1496cc OHV Meadows 4ED engine mated to a four-speed Moss gearbox and driving through an ENV spiral bevel axle. The chassis members were bought in from Rubery Owen and the steering gear sourced from Marles while most of the aluminium over ash frame bodies were manufactured by Reall of West London. Priced at 395 the 1.5 litre HRG was half the cost of the equivalent Aston Martin and some 1 000 pounds lighter. During 1936 the company established its own premises at Tolworth in Surrey. Two years later it launched the 1100 that was powered by a 1074cc 10hp OHC Singer unit and in 1939 as supplies of the Meadows engine dried up it opted for Singer s 1496cc 12hp engine for what it now called its 1500 model. Car production resumed after the war and continued until 1956 with the business soldiering on for a further ten years in an engineering consultancy capacity. Figures for total production vary but were in the region of 240 of which some 90 percent are said to survive today. Supplied new by Follet of Mayfair with Aerodynamic coachwork to renowned race and rally driver and later Chief Constable of Northamptonshire John Gott there can be few HRGs with such an illustrious period competition history as JGO 463. Successes include an Open Team Award on the 1948 Alpine Rally 3rd in class in the 1949 Alpine Rally fastest 1500 on the Stelvio and Vars Passes in the 1950 event following removal of the Aerodynamic bodywork 1st in class and winner of a Coupe Des Alpes in the 1951 Alpine Rally - the first British 1500 to win such a prestigious award and 4th in class (without loss of marks) in the 1952 Tulip Rally. The car competed in a 1950 production car race at Silverstone and was campaigned in numerous other events both national and International before John Gott sold The Old Lady to A S Macdonald in 1954. In 1961 it came into the possession of Mr Roy Keevil who gave it to his son Michael in 1978. On his death in 1986 it passed to his widow Mrs Carol Ann Keevil and upon her remarriage it was registered in her new name of Lawrence. The car has therefore been in her family for over 55 years. In the late 1980s Mrs Lawrence sent the car to Forres in Scotland to be looked after by ex-HRG employee and restorer Dick Watson who was a family friend. During this period various works were carried out before the car went on display at the Atwell Motor Museum in Calne Wiltshire between 1992 and 1998. Following her retirement Mrs Lawrence brought the car home and used it on occasional outings and events with servicing being carried out by her husband a retired qualified motor engineer with guidance and advice from Dick Watson. Most recent works include attention to the brakes and the fitment of a full set of made to measure wool carpets bound and gaitered. The car is accompanied by an extensive history file including correspondence from John Gott confirming his ownership and some of the car s exploits buff logbook from 1958 assorted records of work carried out since 1961 numerous invoices expired MoTs and other sundry correspondence. More recent invoices include re-trimming of the interior in 1999 and replacement of the carpets at a cost of over 1 000 in 2016.

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. The certificate in writing of the Auctioneer as to such rate shall be conclusive. 4.5 Where a Reserve has been placed only the Auctioneer may bid on that Lot on behalf of the Seller. 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 (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.

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.

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. The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN number under which a vehicle is offered but relies on the Seller s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing rallying or ex-works history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times both in a vehicle s works career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes works vehicles were fitted with different registration plates so that a vehicle could meet a particular event s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity. 12.2 The Buyer shall be the person making the highest bid at or over Reserve (if any) that is accepted by the Auctioneer and the Contract shall be concluded at the fall of the hammer. The Auctioneer shall have the absolute discretion to settle any dispute related to bidding at the Sale. All sales are deemed not to be sales in the course of a business unless notified to the contrary. 12.3 Every bidder shall be deemed to act as a principal unless the Auctioneer has prior to the auction date acknowledged (either by acceptance of the Bidder s Registration Form which discloses the true principal or otherwise in writing) that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of a disclosed principal. 12.4 The Auctioneer may in its absolute discretion refuse to accept any bid advance the bidding as it may decide withdraw or divide any Lot combine any two or more Lots and in the case of dispute may put up any Lot for auction again. 12.5 A prospective bidder should register his intention to bid for a Lot by completing fully and signing a Bidder s Registration Form prior to executing his bid. If this has not been completed before the fall of the hammer the Buyer shall forthwith complete the Bidder s Registration Form. The Bidder shall also provide photographic identification. Failure to do so shall not invalidate the sale unless the Auctioneer in its absolute discretion so decides. 12.6 Any bid which fails to reach the Reserve may be submitted by the Auctioneer to the Seller and if the Seller accepts that bid the Lot will be deemed to have been sold to the Buyer at the sum bid at the fall of the hammer and the normal Terms and Conditions will apply to that sale. 13.1 Where a Lot is illustrated by a photograph in the case of a vehicle with a registration number visible that number will not be transferred with the vehicle to the Buyer unless the registration particulars appear in the written part of the description and the transfer has been authorised by the Seller. If the vehicle is sold to the Buyer before the formalities of the allocation of a different registration number to that vehicle are completed with the DVLA the Buyer accepts that he will take all steps necessary to co-operate with either the Seller or the Auctioneer to have the number re-transferred to the Seller or as may be and will take no steps to register the vehicle with the number in his name. 13.2 Whilst the interests of prospective Buyers are best served by personal attendance at the Sale the Auctioneers will if so 156 THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION instructed execute bids on their behalf. Neither the Auctioneer nor its Employees or Agents will be responsible for any error or default in doing so or in failing altogether to do so. Where the Auctioneer executes bids on behalf of an absent bidder each Lot will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and any relevant Reserve. 14. The Buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer in respect of each Lot the Buyer s Commission calculated on the Hammer Price at the stated rates as set out above. 15. Where a Lot is described in the Catalogue or announced at the time of Sale as being subject to VAT on import VAT will be payable in addition to the Hammer Price (which VAT may or may not be refundable by HM Customs & Excise on proof of export). 16.1 Upon the sale of a Lot the Buyer shall 16.2 Unless he has already done so complete a Bidder s Registration Form as in Condition 12.5 above 16.3 Pay to the Auctioneer the total amount due at latest by midday on the day after the Sale notwithstanding that where the Buyer wishes to export the Lot an export licence may be required which must be obtained by the Buyer at his own cost 16.4 Accept that any payments received by the Auctioneer from a Buyer may be applied by the Auctioneer towards any sums owing from that Buyer to the Auctioneer on any account whatsoever without regard to any directions of the Buyer or his agent whether express or implied. 17.1 Until the total amount due has been received by the Auctioneer (a) title in a Lot shall not pass to the Buyer but the risk shall (b) no Lot may be taken away by or on behalf of the Buyer. 17.2 The Buyer shall be responsible for any removal storage and insurance charges and any other Expenses on any Lot not paid for and taken away by 1pm on the day following the day of the sale. 18.1 If a Buyer fails either to pay for or to take away any Lot the Auctioneer may without further notice to the Buyer at its discretion and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies as may be relevant in relation to any and all remedies for non-payment that the Auctioneer may choose to exercise. The Buyer will pay to the Auctioneer all legal and other costs borne by it on a full indemnity basis. 18.2 To charge interest at a rate not exceeding 3% per month over Natwest Bank s base rate on so much of the total amount due as remains unpaid after the date and time referred to in condition 16.3 for the first two months. 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 non-Auctioneer operatives during the Sale or any removable items left within lots during the same period. Any claims for damage and or lost items must be submitted to the Auctioneer in writing no later than 3 working days after the date of the Sale and include a valid quote for repair or replacement and digital photographs where applicable. 22. The Auctioneer shall be under no liability for any injury damage or loss sustained by any person while on the Auctioneers premises (including any premises where a sale may be conducted or where a Lot or a part of a Lot may be on view from time to time) except for death or personal injury caused by the negligence of the Auctioneers or its employees and agents in the course of their duties to the Auctioneers. 23. The Auctioneer shall have the right at its sole discretion without assigning any reason to refuse any person admission to its Premises or attendance at any of its Sales or to view any Lot. 24. The Auctioneer shall keep and use any data relating to the Buyer and the Seller in accordance with the provisions of all relevant data protection legislation. The Buyer and the Seller consent to such data being kept and used for appropriate purposes including informing the Buyer and the Seller of any offers or other matters of interest from time to time. 25. 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. 26.
