VAT 20%) MOTOR CAR SALE Wednesday 29th March 2017 at 1.00pm 2 Welcome Dear Friends of H&H Classics Welcome to our first Duxford sale of 2017 at The Imperial War Museum. As usual the sale takes place alongside aircraft that made history and we hope to make automotive history ourselves once again when Simon Hope picks up the auctioneer s gavel. Something of a theme is emerging at our Duxford auctions the sale of high value Ferraris on behalf of life-saving charities. In October 2015 it was the Colton Ferraris on behalf of the RNLI. At 10m for the two cars it was the biggest ever single donation the charity has ever received. At this Duxford sale it is the turn of the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service (for whom Prince William flies). It will be the beneficiary of the late Richard Allen former Chairman of the Ferrari UK Club whose Ferrari Nembo Spider comes up for auction. The 1964 Ferrari 330GT is conservatively estimated to sell for a figure well in excess of 500 000. The Nembo will not be alone in fact it is one of eleven Ferraris which come to sale on March 29th providing something for everyone who loves this famous marque. And to balance the Italian presence we have seven Porsches including two 911 S twins from 1967 both in sand-beige. The S high performance model introduced in 1966 is very collectable and these are very early examples. It s a thrill to see the two cars together as they are true twins. Only 300 chassis numbers apart they may have met back in the Zuffenhausen (Stuttgart Porsche HQ) factory in 1967 One is completely original and unrestored still carrying its factory paint. It would be extremely difficult to find a second such car in the world. The other is completely restored to as new condition. Continuing the theme of Multiple Choice there is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Armstrong Siddeley collectors in this sale six cars from 1925 to 1935 all available at NO RESERVE. And for VW enthusiasts three vintage Beetles a split screen camper van and a Karmann Ghia at 50 000 estimate to get the blood pumping. As usual this sale offers a selection of the best be it a pre 1904 London to Brighton veteran (for example a 1900 De Dion for 65 000 to 75 000) or a range of pre-WW2 classics Bentley Rolls-Royce Riley or indeed a modern classic a Jaguar E-Type. They are all here. COST OF ATTENDING Please note that for our Selected Classic Auctions the Catalogue price will be 20 ticket price 10 with a free pocket guide per ticket.

Yours sincerely Simon Hope and Dominic Lyncker Duxford March 29th A multiple choice test... Ferrari Porsche VW Bentley and Armstrong Siddeley 3 The RT Hon Sir Greg Knight MP Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Historic Vehicles Group Member of Parliament for East Yorkshire Sometimes the good intentions of government produce an unexpected and unhoped for result. Generally most of us would agree that praise is due when a government takes steps to cut bureaucracy and unnecessary paperwork. The demise of the Vehicle Excise Duty tax disc was unexpected but oddly this reduction in government paperwork has not been universally welcomed nor has it been without cost it appears to the Exchequer. The round tax disc which has been displayed on vehicles since 1921 has now all but vanished from vehicle windscreens. Since 1st October 2014 this iconic round shaped coloured piece of paper has no longer been issued and so a little piece of motoring history is gone. But has it gone for good With number plate recognition cameras being installed in most patrol cars the disc is no longer needed by police as evidence as they have immediate access to DVLA computer data. But in answer to a Parliamentary question it has been revealed that in 2013 2016 the government collected 6 052m in Vehicle Excise Duty but in 2015 2016 this had fallen to 5 930m despite more vehicles on the road. So it would appear that the disc was not only proof to others that a vehicle was taxed but was a useful aide memoir to owners too As the Spring of 2017 moves nearer towards Summer what better time to buy that classic car you have always wanted. Even if you are just looking I am sure you will enjoy this bumper vehicle auction from H and H. 4 the wArren Golf & country club Are pleAsed to Announce sunday 24th september 2017 woodham walter essex england cM9 6rw for advance purchase tickets buy tIckets onlIne At www.wArrenclAssIc.co.uk see website for full details exhibitor information and entry details In AssocIAtIon wIth 5 E.M.

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

In any event purchasers are reminded that clearance of Lot(s) may only be effected once we have received cleared funds in our account. For Purchaser s wishing to pay by bank transfer our bank account details are as follows Account Name IBAN Number Swift Code Account Number Branch Sort Code Bank H&H Classics Limited GB98NWBK01091771060480 NWBKGB2L 71060480 01-09-17 Nat West Warrington Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates When mention is made of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates in this catalogue it should be borne in mind that the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain does from time to time review cars already dated and in some instances where fresh evidence becomes available alter the date. Whilst the Club makes every effort to ensure accuracy the date shown on the Dating Plate or Dating Certificate cannot be guaranteed as correct and intending purchasers should make their own enquiries as to the date of the car. Export Licence Dates Export licences may be required for any lot manufactured or produced 50 years or more prior to the date of export from the U.K. It is the responsibility of the buyer to obtain the licence and correct documentation prior to the exportation of the lot. 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 and can be reviewed much the same way Veteran Cars can be re-dated as new information comes to light. The Issuing Authority can refuse to issue new papers. Any prospective purchaser should check the position of the Lot prior to bidding. 9 MOTOR CARS 1 1948 RILEY RM 2.5 LITRE DROPHEAD COUPE CONVERSION ESTIMATE 15000 - 20000 The RM Series cars were the last proper Rileys - the swansong of the marque before it was subsumed into the mighty British Motor Corporation. The model range was manufactured in Coventry until 1949 when production moved to the MG factory at Abingdon. The RMA RME were large Saloons powered by 1.5-litre four-cylinder engines while the 7-inches longer RMB RMF models featured twincam 2.5-litre units. The RMC and RMD were limited edition soft-tops. While the latter was a conventional two-door Drophead Coupe the RMC was a twodoor Roadster version of the RMB. The 2.5 litre four-cylinder powerplant produced some 100bhp and was also unusual in having twin pushrod-operated camshafts placed high in the cylinder block. The chassis number of the car offered today appears to denote it started life as an RMB saloon. The vendor advises JLV 906 was converted to drophead coupe coachwork in 2015 a new interior fitted whilst a comprehensive engine overhaul was carried out in May 2016. Now resplendent in Bronze with Magnolia interior this most handsome Riley is described as being in fabulous condition with excellent bodywork interior and engine. Forming part of a private collection we are informed it received a thorough check over in November 2016 at a cost of 1000. This must surely represent an ideal opportunity to acquire a wonderful looking four seater open Riley which will cruise at 80mph for much less than the price of an original.

Powered by a sidevalve sixcylinder 1236cc engine the newcomer offered class competitive performance and was more refined than some four-cylinder rivals. Initially available as a twoseater coupe four-seater tourer or fabric saloon the 12hp could be had with more elaborate coachwork by October 1930 including a coachbuilt saloon derivative which was nicely crafted but decidedly heavy. Entering the late Sir Colin Hope s collection in 1994 the Four-Seater Tourer has since been treated to four new wings replacement running boards and an engine overhaul. Little used over the past seven years it was in running order when photographed during late October 2016 but will require recommissioning prior to road use. The Tourer appears to be complete but presents as an older restoration with various paint imperfections and some wear to the upholstery etc. ALL ESTIMATES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Powered by an 1852cc four-cylinder OHV engine the newcomer was further distinguished from the marque s larger horsepower models by the use of a flat rather than V-shaped radiator. Launched in 1925 the Mark II version was based around a new chassis equipped with with four-wheel drum brakes and semi-elliptic front and rear springs (as opposed to the cantilever springs used on the Mark I). The improved chassis enabled the company to offer a wider range of open and closed body styles. The Cotswold tourer - a full five-seater car which was supplied with a hood and side screens - proved to be the most popular open derivative. Entering the late Sir Colin Hope s collection in 1993 the Mark II Cotswold Tourer has since been treated to four new wings new running boards and a re-spray. The engine is understood to have been overhauled some fifteen years ago with the gearbox receiving new internals at the same time. Little used over the past seven years it was in running order when photographed during late October 2016 but will require recommissioning prior to road use. The Tourer appears to be complete.

Boasting a slightly larger engine (1900cc vs 1852cc) albeit with side rather than overhead valves the newcomer supplanted its older sibling for the 1930 season. Entering the late Sir Colin Hope s collection in 1998 this particular Open Tourer example had been supplied new to a New Zealand-based chicken famer some seventy years earlier.

Powered by a smaller 2318cc OHV six-cylinder engine the newcomer also sat on a shorter 10ft 0in wheelbase but utilised the same 4ft 8in track and suspension layout as its larger sibling. The company made 2 126 examples of the 18hp in its original form. A Mark II version appeared in Autumn 1925 but was heavily revised the following Spring complete with a new chassis and enlarged 2872cc engine. Two versions of the updated design were available the Long and Short derivatives differing in terms of wheelbase length and final drive ratio etc. The bigger engine soon attracted the attention of the taxation authorities and thus the 18hp Mark II became the 20hp for the 1927 season. The Short 20hp and Long 20hp remained in production until 1931 by which time a total of 6 641 18hp Mark 2 and 20hp cars had been completed. The Short chassis car was much more popular than the Long 20 and made up three-quarters of total production. The Short-Chassis car was more affordable and would have performed better than the Long-Chassis when fitted with the increasingly popular and heavy saloon coachwork. Entering the late Sir Colin Hope s collection in 1996 this particular 18hp MKII Short Tourer has since been treated to an engine overhaul. A brass plaque affixed to its bulkhead indicates that the car was restored by D&C Brooks of Northampton during 1993.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION 7 Arguably the most exotic Armstrong Siddeley ever produced the Siddeley Special was unveiled at the 1932 Olympia Motor Show. Fabricated from aircraftgrade Hiduminium alloy its 5 litre straight-six engine was notably smooth and powerful. Available with a variety of open and closed coachwork the Siddeley Special was among the best performing luxury cars of its generation. As well as the choice of two wheelbase lengths the Mark II version also ushered in a host of detail improvements including twin SU carburettors. Of the 253 Siddeley Specials made just 30 or so are known to have survived to the present day. Initially serving as a factory demonstrator chassis 3418 was sold to its first private keeper Sir George Shirtcliffe on 5th September 1936. Resident in the Antipodes for most of its life the Touring Limousine was repatriated by the late Sir Colin Hope during winter 1998 and reissued with its original UK number plate BWK 256 the following year. Seemingly never allowed to deteriorate to the point of needing restoration the Siddeley Special is understood to have been mechanically overhauled whilst in Australia. More recent work has included a brake system overhaul. Apparently complete the Special is in fair cosmetic order. Running and driving when photographed during late October 2016 it will nonetheless require recommissioning prior to road use.

But the ever-resourceful Ron Hickman proved more than up to the task of adding two seats to his original masterpiece. No longer did a new father need to forsake his sports car when the kids came along he just bought an Elan 2 and installed them in the back. Having recently returned to the UK from New Zealand where it was sold new the vendor advises FND 961F is in excellent condition in regards to its bodywork dark yellow paintwork and engine with very good black interior trim. With no signs of stress cracking to the bodywork its condition would certainly concur with it having led a cared for existence. Retaining its original chassis the car was repainted in the early 1990s at which time a 5-speed gearbox was also fitted. Displaying some 53 088 miles which though unwarranted could well be genuine this appealing Elan comes with a Swansea V5 document MoT to November 2017 Lotus Heritage Certificate and a large folder of invoices. Initially the B was only available in Roadster form and at launch the model was powered by a three-bearing version of the 1798cc B-Series engine that produced 95bhp at 5 400rpm. However with an eye on superior reliability this unit was replaced by a five-bearing one two years into production. The MKII version of the venerable MGB was introduced in 1967 and brought an updated manual gearbox the option of a Borg Warner automatic unit revised rear axle and switch from dynamos to alternators. This lovely example was subject to a comprehensive restoration in 2004 before forming part of a private collection and subsequently being acquired by the vendor and added to his own collection in 2015. More recently recommissioned this most attractive MG B is described as being in superb condition with a fabulous black interior and hood and excellent engine. The white bodywork also presents to a high standard. Carrying an MoT to October 2017 and showing c.93 600 miles on its odometer OSB 121K has recently led a pampered existence and would be a delight to enjoy on a summer s day or a potential winner on the show circuit. 18 ALL ESTIMATES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

During 1931 the Gamecock variant became the range s prime twoseat Tourer. It was an immediate success with the underslung chassis producing a sleek low body design quite unlike anything else available at the time. TF 7539 is one of c.52 Gamecocks known to remain in existence. Within the same family ownership since c.1965 it is currently part dismantled and in need of restoration but believed to be complete. A replacement engine was installed in 1965 and another unit and gearbox are available by separate negotiation. Finished in White and trimmed in Red the Riley comes complete with green log book and selection of invoices and old MOTs. A unique opportunity. At the cessation of WWII hostilities mainland Europe was littered with military hardware of various nationalities. This included many examples of the ubiquitous Jeep abandoned by the allied forces. Some of those left in Italy were subsequently converted to the Italian army s unique specification by the O.A.R.E. (Army Auto Repair Workshop) and the Willys MB now being offered is an example that remained in Italy until imported to these shores just two years ago. Though like most that received the O.A.R.E. treatment the sale Jeep has been largely converted back to original specification it still displays traces of the hinge mountings for the metal doors that were added as well as Italian dashboard plaques with information about permissible speeds the operation of the four-wheel drive transmission etc. The vehicle was most recently used at last September s Goodwood Revival meeting and though running and driving it would nevertheless benefit from a degree of further recommissioning restoration.

Built on June 1st 1962 it originally resided in Umbria where it was then treated to a thorough 8 000 Euro refurbishment in 2002. Its second owner was a resident of Bruges which is where the 500 lived until imported to the UK by a Kentbased collector in 2015. Only recently it benefited from another respray in its original colour of Verde Chiaro and was equipped with many new parts including exhaust system battery sunroof and set of tyres. Still displaying just 37 213 kilometres this little gem comes complete with period engine cover rack wicker hamper and MOT into October 2017. According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate included in the sale SPL 55 (the original registration was the Wolverhampton number VUK 987 ) was first registered to Jaguar dealer W M Hendrick of Walsall on May 3 1958 having vacated the Browns Lane production line on March 12. The Fixed Head Coupe s distinctive Orange bodywork is teamed with Brown interior trim and the Jaguar rides on painted wire wheels.

Unsold it then passed to Orchid Cars from whom it was purchased by the previous owner who set about its restoration. The vendor acquired the Renault in 2006 and completed the refurbishment by overhauling the steering box radiator magneto and rear axle and commissioning a new bent ash hood frame and hood and stainless steel exhaust all to original specification.

Finished in a wonderful period colour the body had significant repairs carried out to it in 2010 as stated by the invoice for nearly 4 000 from a body repair company in Adlington Cheshire. Further improvements were carried out in 2011 by a company in Stockport Cheshire when they overhauled the Sportomatic gearbox and fitted a new clutch. The cost of this work was just under 3 500 and the 84 500 miles indicated on the odometer would suggest this work was carried out less than a thousand miles ago. There are several previous MOT certificates on file dated between 1997 and 2013 and the current MOT is due to expire in October 2017.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION The 190SL was introduced in 1955 the year Mercedes swept all before it on the Mille Miglia with the 300SLR. Indeed the graceful new two-door convertible grand tourer was sold alongside the road-going version of the SLR the 300SL - whose styling it strongly resembled. In fact the underpinnings of the two cars were quite different and while the 300SL had a purpose-built tubular spaceframe (W198) its smaller sibling was built on a shortened version of the Ponton saloon (W121) platform which was of monocoque construction. The 190SL also boasted an all-new engine - an over-square SOHC straight-four unit of 1897cc that produced some 120bhp which was sufficient to propel the car to a maximum speed of 112mph. The engine was coupled to a manual four-speed gearbox. The suspension comprised double wishbones and coil springs at the front and a coil-sprung swing axle at the rear. Steering was by recirculating ball and braking by power-assisted drums all round. Built to the highest standards and among the quickest comparable cars of the time the 190SL featured a well-appointed cockpit notable comfort for its occupants and relatively generous luggage space. Under the circumstances even the steep asking price of 2 693 did nothing to deter purchasers. Options included a third seat placed transversely behind the front ones which was big enough to carry an adult. The 190SL continued in production until 1963 when both it and the 300SL were replaced by the 230SL (W113). By this time over 25 000 190SLs had been produced (just over two percent of which were to right-hand drive specification). One of just 562 190SLs built to right-hand drive specification this particular example chassis number 23629 has been UK registered since August 1st 1976. Retained by its previous keeper George Fisher Esq. for twenty-four years (1990-2014) the Mercedes-Benz was resident in both Scotland and Southern Spain during that time. Inspected by T&T Technical Services of Edinburgh during October 1995 on Mr Fisher s behalf their report read as follows The bodywork of the vehicle was found to be in first class condition with no evidence of excessive 16 corrosion or perforation. We were unable to detect any extensive repairs which had been carried out to the bodywork and in our opinion it would appear that this vehicle is totally original and in as near perfect condition as is possible for a vehicle of this age. The paintwork was also in very good condition although it had at some time in the past been re-sprayed but to a very high standard . . . Apart from a slight oil leak from the rear of the engine the mechanical components and vehicle undercarriage were in original and undamaged condition. It is our opinion that this vehicle is as near original as it is possible for a vehicle of this type to be and from all accounts it appears to be totally original and has not been restored . Doubtless aided by its sojourn in sunnier climes the 190SL remains highly presentable some twenty-two years later. Entering the current ownership during 2014 the Mercedes-Benz has since benefited from the addition of twin Weber 40 DCOE carburettors (though the original Solex ones have been retained should a new owner wish to reinstate them).

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Famously launched at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show the Jaguar E-Type created a furore. Its combination of supercar performance superb styling and a low price tag left rivals reeling and customers clamouring. While early sportscar racing success at the hands of Graham Hill and Roy Salvadori amongst others helped cement its reputation. Built as a monocoque with a front sub-frame to cradle the engine the model s combination of all-round independent suspension (torsion-bar front coil-sprung rear) rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes gave it excellent roadholding and handling capabilities. Fed by triple SU HD8 carburettors and topped with a straight port DOHC cylinder head its indomitable 3781cc straight-six engine was quoted as developing some 265bhp and 260lbft of torque. Allied to a four-speed Moss gearbox (with synchromesh on 2nd 3rd and 4th) it reputedly enabled the low-slung two-seater to sprint from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and onto 150mph. While any E-type roadster is desirable the lithesome free-revving 3.8 litre cars enjoy a particularly exalted status. Dating from early in the production cycle before Jaguar responded to popular demand for greater comfort and refinement they arguably represent the automotive icon in its purest form. Supplied new to America this particular example chassis 880134 has only recently been repatriated from a Massachusetts barn. Among the most original left-hand drive E-Type 3.8 Roadsters that we have encountered the two-seater pleasingly retains its factory-fitted body number plaque engine and carburetor positioning tags Although the present odometer reading of 22 341 miles cannot be warranted it is lent some credence by the lack 17 of wear to the Black leather upholstery and camshaft cover cylinder head nuts etc. Indeed renowned marque specialists XK Engineering of Coventry believe that the car s front suspension has yet to be apart since leaving Browns Lane. Running and driving but not on the road for the past dozen years or so the Jaguar is ripe for recommissioning and using as is or as the basis of a concours standard restoration. The Black mohair hood has self-evidently been renewed at some stage and the Primrose Yellow paintwork has plenty of age to it but from what we could gather chassis 880134 seems to be free from any major structural corrosion.

All this and more was what led the vendor to go searching for a Splitscreen example to enjoy with his wife and baby boy. An advert by Wolfsburg VWs - Type 2 Specialists caught his eye back in 2003 and a call revealed they had imported HCK 101E from San Diego and were in the process of comprehensively restoring it.

Wolfsburg left no stone unturned - all the mechanical components received attention from engine to gearbox and steering to brakes etc. The body was treated to a bare metal respray in Pearl White and the interior was completely refurbished in oak-veneered board (in place of the original cheap veneered plywood) and Red upholstery. Westfalia-style roof racks were affixed to the top and an up-to-date sound system cunningly installed below the facia.

Aimed at the emerging owner-driver luxury car market the newcomer was closely based on the 1939 MKV (of which only fifteen were produced). Built around a massive cruciform-braced chassis with independent front suspension and a leaf-sprung live rear axle it was fitted with a freshly developed 4257cc OISE (overhead inlet side exhaust valve) straight-six engine mated to a fourspeed manual gearbox. Capable of over 100mph when clad in the factory s understated standard steel saloon coachwork the MKVI quickly developed a reputation for being a refined yet responsive drive. However despite the excellence of the basic car there remained a core of marque enthusiasts who found its styling too anonymous. Known for the quality and elegance of its renderings H.J. Mulliner clothed some 307 MKVI chassis. Deservedly popular the London coachbuilder s design number 7059 - a handsome four-door six-light saloon with semi-razor edge lines - accounted for some 125 sales.

Initially it was powered by a 1548cc engine manufactured by the British branch of Hotchkiss. This was increased in capacity to 1802cc during 1923. The Oxford name reflected the city in which the car was built and the Bullnose moniker stemmed from the distinctive rounded top of the model s radiator.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION In a letter to the vendor from Ian Dussek of the HRG Association he explains that this HRG left the factory on November 11th 1948 as a standard 1500 with a body by Automarine painted in green with a green leather interior. Mr Dussek states that the HRG was entered into the 1949 Alpine Rally and it is believed to have been Works prepared for the event at the request of first owner John Roberts of London SW7. Apparently the weather that year was terrible which resulted in Mr Roberts retirement on the first day. Believed indications of Works preparation for the Rally are two circular holes in the nearside of the bonnet for the carburettors brackets on the headlight frame supports the placing of the front brake cables through the wings to raise them from the chassis rails a leather bonnet strap twin spare wheels brackets to hold two one gallon cans of fuel either side of the differential enamel union jack badges on the leading sides of the bonnet and twin fuel pumps. In 1950 Commander Norman A. Bartlett RN purchased the car and continued it s competition career by taking part in the BARC s Private Members Meeting at Goodwood on August 12th 1950. Bill Potter purchased the HRG from Vincent s Garage in Yeovil Somerset in 1952 3 and sold it in 1960 to an Adrien Sturgeon who participated in trials and an HRG versus MG race at Silverstone in 1964. In 1966 the car was acquired by a David Parry who presented the car to Willows Lane Garage in Accrington Lancashire for a restoration. Mr Parry took the engine and dashboard instruments away for refurbishing elsewhere and although the garage commenced work their invoices were unpaid so the car remained there for the next eighteen years. The vendor acquired the car from the garage s receivers in late 1983 early 1984. The vendor contacted Mr Parry soon after he had acquired the HRG but Mr Parry was uninterested in reuniting the engine and instruments with the car. Contact between the two people was eventually lost and the whereabouts of the original engine are now unknown. The HRG Association informed the vendor that a few cars towards the end of production were fitted with a 1500cc 26 Singer SM engine. An SM engine was therefore sourced from a Singer Gazelle and installed complete with its single carburettor. The vendor had intended to fit a correct (for an HRG) twin carburettor arrangement sometime but never did despite acquiring a twin carburettor head. The un-fitted head will be supplied with the car. Upon completion of the body restoration it was painted in Rolls-Royce Brewster Green and then the brakes suspension and axles were overhauled and the wheels re-spoked. A new fuel tank was manufactured and the radiator was re-cored and the top hose outlet relocated plus the radiator shell headlights and other brightwork were re-chromed and a new wiring harness was made. Lastly the interior was retrimmed in green Connolly leather and Wilton carpet and a roof and side screens were constructed. The restoration was completed in 1994 and the car has only covered around 3 500 miles since. The comprehensive history file contains invoices for restoration works plus letters between the vendor and the HRG Association and previous owners. There are many photographs taken during the restoration and also copies of photographs showing the car on the starting grids of Goodwood in 1950 and Silverstone in 1964. The car also features in the book HRG The Sportsman s Ideal by Ian Dussek of the HRG Association in a photograph of Ron Godfrey (the G in HRG) taken by the author in 1960 standing in front of KLD 447.

Its production run spanned a remarkable 19 years during which 237 287 SLs and 62 888 SLCs were manufactured a very high percentage of which are still providing sterling service. It was launched in 1971 initially with just a 3.5-litre engine (350SL) mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The model was essentially a marriage of chassis components from the mid-sized W114 model with the larger engines of the S-Class (W116) range. The car featured a two-door monocoque bodyshell with independent suspension all round. The power assisted steering was Daimler-Benz s own recirculating ball system. Braking was by discs all round ventilated on the front. The range grew to two models when the 4.5-litre (450SL) derivative arrived the following year and to three when the 2.8-litre (280SL) appeared in mainland Europe in 1974. It was replaced by the 3.0-litre (300SL) in 1985. The latter s engine had an output of 185bhp sufficient to provide the model with ample acceleration and an impressive top speed of around 130mph.

Famous for winning the 1951 and 1953 Le Mans 24-hours the C-Type may well have triumphed on the 1952 event had Jaguar not chosen to make various unproven modifications.

The original (short) wheelbase was discontinued and the revised car offered only as Roadster (now based on the longer 2 2 floorpan) or 2 2 Coupe. Production of the Series 3 model continued until 1974 when the range was superseded by the XJS by which time some 15 000 V12-engined examples had been produced - most of which were exported to North America.

The previous owner - the prolific and respected motor historian and writer Anthony Pritchard was an authority on Italian race sports cars having written Ferrari Men from Maranello Italian HighPerformance Cars Mille Miglia the World s Greatest Road Race Lamborghini Super cars from Sant Agata Scarlet Passion Maserati - A Racing History and many more. We understand he had owned the car in the 1960s before acquiring it again from America and selling it to the vendor shortly before his tragic death in 2013 following a road accident. The restoration work began in America where the car was resprayed and retrimmed before being imported to the UK in June 2011 and completed. Work here included an engine strip down and thorough overhaul by marque specialists Omicron (invoices for works done by them between September 2011 and June 2012 totalling some 31 000 are on file). Other invoices for additional expenditure (excluding work done in the US) total some 8 000 whilst the vendor advises he has spent around two hundred hours attending to smaller jobs. The Aurelia B20 GT is rightly regarded as one of the most innovative cars of all time and is credited as first of the new breed of modern post-war Grand Turismo coupes. Introduced in 1951 it created an immediate sensation. Costing almost twice the price of a Jaguar XK120 the B20GT was a car of great style based on an initial design by Felice Mario-Boano of Ghia and later refined by Vittorio Jano. Lancia pioneered many of the advances that we now take for granted from the first ever V6 engine through to using Michelin X radial tyres. The Aurelia recorded a string of racing successes shortly after its introduction finishing second overall on the Mille Miglia in 1953 winning its class at Le Mans coming 1st 2nd and 3rd in the Targa Florio and also winning the Liege-Rome-Liege Rally. Indeed Aurelia GTs 35 were still being raced well beyond 1954 including Luigi Villoresi winning the Akropolis Rally in 1958. Aside from its competition successes notable owners of Aurelias have included Fangio Mike Hawthorn Leslie Hawthorn Jean Behra Gary Cooper Brigitte Bardot and more recently Jay Leno and the Earl of March The Aurelia used the first ever production V6 engine a 60-deg marvel designed by Francesco de Virgilio who also developed the innovative transaxle all-in-one assembly with the gearbox clutch differential and inboard-mounted drum brakes. Vittorio Jano Lancia s chief engineer instigated putting this gearbox assembly at the rear of the car thus creating its near neutral weight distribution. This brilliant concept made the Aurelia the motorsport winner it became often beating the more powerful Alfas because of its better road-holding brakes and weight distribution. This particular car is a sought after 4th series B20GT in which the rear semi-trailing arms of the earlier cars were replaced with a De Dion rear end thus creating more predictable handling. It also features the most powerful engine of any of the Aurelias the 2.5-litre aluminium unit producing 118bhp. This very special car also features the coveted Nardi floor shift that is most commonly seen on the Lancia B24 Spyder. According to the official build records it was released on 25 June 1954 finished in Grigio and fitted with engine no. 3576 which it retains to this day.

They collaborated with Tom Meade over various re-bodied sports and racing cars but continued to use the Nembo moniker after the American entrepreneur became engrossed with his self-referential Thomassima designs. Members of Maserati s competition department during the 1950s and therefore witnesses to Fangio s F1 championship winning 1957 season Neri and Bonacini were used to delivering miracles on a shoestring budget. Well respected in Modenese automotive circles their peers included Giotto Bizzarrini and Piero Drogo. Indeed they are credited with introducing the former to Ferruccio Lamborghini and were responsible for not only building the tractor magnate s prototype 350 GTV but also fabricating his nascent marque s earliest chassis. Engineers as well as craftsmen they helped run Count Volpi s Scuderia Serenissima and hone the famous Ferrari 250 GT SWB Breadvan . A safe pair of go to hands they undertook a series of one-off commissions such as the Lamborghini 400 GT Monza and Nembo II (the latter being profiled in the August 1966 issue of Road & Track magazine). Perhaps frustrated with making others look good the duo decided to build and market their own sports car. Christened the Studio GT Due Litri the resultant midengined two-seater proved a bridge too far prompting a divorce in late 1967 with Neri going to work for De Tomaso and Bonacini joining Drogo s Carrozzeria Sports Cars. Neri subsequently set-up on his own and it is perhaps no small irony that a man who helped Maserati achieve some of its greatest racing victories went on to create what is in our eyes at least one of the most beautiful coachbuilt Ferraris ever made.

He was also a keen golfer and sailor in his powerboat with a fine collection of performance and luxury cars in his garage. As an aside interestingly he was a keen supporter of the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) whom were the beneficiaries of the proceeds of the earlier H&H auction of the late Richard Colton s Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta chassis 1995 GT and 275 GTB 4 Berlinetta chassis 10177. Some 25 years later the car had seen better days and a Sussex based Ferrari enthusiast who revelled in the power and torque afforded by his similarly powered Ferrari 4 litre GTO had the idea of turning it into an elegant spider in the style of the Nembo spiders produced in the mid sixties. The original company Neri & Bonacini had ceased trading in 1967 but Giorgio Neri (the Ne of Nembo) still had a workshop in Modena and was approached to rebuild 5805 in the form of the spiders that he and Luciano Bonacini had built in the sixties for an American client resident in Modena Tom Meade who gained worldwide attention with his Ferrari based Thomassima creations in the late sixties. In fact they built two spiders one on a Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet chassis 1777 GT and another on a Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta chassis 3771 GT plus a coupe on a Ferrari 250 GT Coupe chassis 1623 GT all with similar lines for him and his clients. There are rumours of a third spider reportedly built on a 250 GTE chassis 2707 GT allegedly delivered to Lebanon but this has never been seen and is thus unconfirmed. Some quarters say that Nembo was a compilation of the names Neri Meade and Bonacini but the name was also that of the 184th Airborne Division of the Italian Army in WW II and also a popular Italian comic book hero of the time 48 ALL ESTIMATES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Nembo translated into English is Nimbus as in the type of cloud and as clouds are a place of dreams as in head in the clouds all are viable reasons for the name. The Nembo spiders have also been credited as having provided Luigi Chinetti with the inspiration for the small series of the now highly desirable 275 GTB 4 NART Spiders that he persuaded Ferrari to build in 1967-68. As previously mentioned the reworking and re-body of 5805 was commissioned by a British Ferrari enthusiast providing Giorgio Neri with a remit to shorten the chassis frame retaining all the original mechanical components including the 4 litre V12 engine transmission and running gear and to provide a new aluminium spider body in the style of those constructed in the mid sixties. Each had slightly different features thus each is a unique example of the company s craft as would become 5805 which would also be the only right hand drive example produced albeit some 25 years after the original examples. The two-seater aluminium coachwork was crafted to a very high standard as an examination of its inner wheel arches will attest. There are a number of pictures of 5805 during its construction at Giorgio Neri s workshop in the car s file which show the aluminium body during stages of construction. Unfortunately at a stage when it was approaching completion aside from its windscreen brightwork hood and various inner panels the then owner of 5805 had financial problems and didn t have sufficient funds to complete the project or pay for outstanding works thus the car remained in storage at Giorgio Neri s until Richard Allen arrived on the scene. The late Richard Allen was an active member and director of the Ferrari Owners Club of Great Britain 36 at the time and later became Chairman a post that he held from 2008 to 2015. He learned of the car s existence on the grapevine and it caught his imagination. Thus accompanied by fellow marque enthusiast Tim Blackburn they travelled to Modena to visit Giorgio Neri s workshop to inspect the car. They were impressed by what they saw not only the craftsmanship on 5805 but also the presence of a 250LM assorted bucks jigs and a scrapped Drogo body Determined to make chassis 5805 the jewel in the crown of his collection Richard Allen struck a deal and had the Ferrari brought back to the UK where the outstanding works necessary to finish the car were carried out by Hayward & Scott in Basildon Essex whilst the respected marque specialist Neil Corns then of Corns Chiltern-Hunt prepared the car for road worthiness and completed the final detailing.

None of the Nembo re-bodied cars are eligible for Ferrari Classiche Certification because they are not as they left the factory. However they remain part of a noble artisan coachbuilding tradition and are certainly very elegant examples of the Modenese coachbuilders craft.

Richard started racing during the early 60 s in Ford Anglias but retired from the track after a very bad accident in 1964. He bought his first Ferrari in the late 70 s and started racing again in the 80 s. Over the years Richard built up a stable of Ferraris used on both road and track. As a Director of the Ferrari Owners Club of Great Britain Richard started the Club s Hill Climb Championship back in 1986 winning it himself on a couple of occasions. As well as this passion for Hill Climbing Richard was also a regular competitor in the FOC Racing Series with his Ferrari 328. Since a very unhappy experience with a near fatal flying accident whilst in the armed forces Richard never flew again so while his legacy will benefit an air ambulance charity he would never have willingly got into one. The gift was motivated by Richard s first hand understanding of the importance of the air ambulance service for racing drivers as well as a desire to support as a resident of Suffolk a local charity. It is expected that at the very least his enormously generous legacy will enable the East Anglian Air Ambulance to add an extra 180 hours per year to its flight schedule saving countless lives in the process.

It was effectively a six-cylinder longer wheelbase version of the four-cylinder D-Type launched at the same time and therefore featured a newly designed riveted steel chassis with sliding trunnion suspension underslung rear axle and centre-lock wire wheels. Though supposedly new the 1271cc engine was in fact an extended version of the Wolseley Hornet unit but equipped with dummy side covers in order to appear to be of fresh design. Its power output was 37.2bhp and it drove to the rear wheels via a straight-cut ENV gearbox. In hood-down guise the Magna was capable of a creditable 72mph-plus flat out. The matching numbers F-Type now offered is an extensively restored example with alloy Threesome Sports body by Stiles - the Threesome moniker referring to the layout of two front seats plus dickey.

Only five of these Stiles-bodied F-Types are known to have survived of which the sale car is chassis F1286. It was delivered new on July 4th 1932 to a Mr A L Watson of London.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Many dismiss 2 2s as being too soft and too weak to be considered real Ferraris. But what they offer is perhaps the perfect compromise V12 power and GT comfort without the price tag of a two-seater. Overlooked and understated the 330 GT 2 2 is quite possibly one of the last remaining budget V12 Ferraris K500.com Making its public debut at the January 1964 Brussels Motor Show (though production had commenced late the previous year) the 330 GT 2 2 was an important model for Ferrari. The sales success of its 250 GTE 2 2 predecessor had proven that there was a definite market for machinery which offered Ferrari s customary performance levels but in a more discrete and practical package. Enzo himself is known to have favoured his company s 2 2 designs when it came to personal transport so perhaps unsurprisingly the newcomer s longer wheelbase Tipo 571 chassis heralded notable improvements in ride quality and braking efficiency. Featuring independent double wishbone front suspension and a leaf-sprung rear axle with twin radius arms per side the 330 GT 2 2 also boasted a front anti-roll bar and adjustable Koni shock absorbers. The four-wheel disc brake system was operated via a twin master cylinder dual servos and two fluid reservoirs meaning that the front and rear discs each had their own dedicated circuit. Revised engine mounts ensured that the incoming Tipo 209 3967cc V12 was less intrusive than when it had been installed aboard the short-lived 330 America (the last of the line 250 GTE 2 2 derivative which accounted for just 50 sales). Derived from Gioacchino Colombo s iconic design the imposing SOHC powerplant was credited with developing 300bhp and 288lbft of torque. Allied to four-speed manual plus overdrive transmission it reputedly enabled the Ferrari to sprint from 0-60mph in 6.3 seconds and onto 152mph. Styled by Tom Tjaarda of Pininfarina the 330 GT 2 2 sported a generous glasshouse well resolved silhouette and distinctive quad headlamps. The latter were a trend that American manufacturers had popularised and which even Rolls-Royce and Bentley had adopted. Though they also facilitated faster after dark motoring. Supplanted by the more generic looking Series II in 1965 only 503 Series I 330 GT 2 2s were made (plus 124 interim cars). One of 453 Series I examples built to left-hand drive specification chassis 6685 was supplied new by Luigi Chinetti Motors Inc of Greenwich Connecticut.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION For many the Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder be it in LWB or SWB guise - is simply one of the most beautiful cars yet made. Though it is the former variant which boasts the greater competition pedigree with a highly impressive 5th place overall during the 1959 Le Mans 24-hours and a class win at that year s Sebring 12-hours. Of the fifty 250 GT California Spyder LWB cars made just thirty-six are known to have been built with the preferred covered headlamps. A Competizione variant - chassis 1603GT - sold for 18 150 000 in August 2016 so ownership is necessarily a select affair. The vendor of this particular car chassis 1241GT has been fortunate enough to own dozens of Ferraris over the past five decades including a 250 GTO and the ex-Pedro Rodriguez 1959 250 GT California Spyder LWB Competizione which he meticulously restored during the late 1990s early 2000s. Smitten by the enclosed headlamp-equipped exRodriguez machine (chassis 1487GT) he determined to make a precise copy and commissioned a dimensionally accurate wooden body buck which took some 3 000 hours to construct just by itself A self-confessed perfectionist with a notorious eye for detail he spent years scouring the globe for correct accessories including door furniture light units instruments and even the correct boot lock. There was no question of using inauthentic parts even if they were destined to be out of sight so when a suitable fuel tank could not be located a facsimile was fabricated from scratch. A connoisseur of all things Prancing Horse he knew that the later California Spyder LWBs were underpinned by the same Tipo 508D chassis as the contemporary 250 GT Pininfarina Coupe (albeit with a different subframe). Starting life as one of the latter chassis 1241GT thus required precious little alteration to serve as a donor (though its brakes were upgraded to four-wheel discs). One of a mere 353 examples made it had been supplied new to America on December 29th 1958 and subsequently belonged to Charles Wray of Maryland before entering the current ownership via Thomas E Shaughnessy Consulting of San Clemente California in August 2000. 45 REG NO CHASSIS 1430 MU 1241GT 63 ALL ESTIMATES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

The precise origins of the 3-litre V12 remain a mystery despite a radiographic inspection carried out during 2003 suggesting 094C or perhaps 0944C as the internal engine number. However it is a dual distributor Tipo 128D inside plug unit of the same type that would have powered a California Spyder LWB when new. The gearbox is similarly period correct albeit that it has been upgraded with a fifth gear courtesy of renowned marque specialists GTO Engineering of Berkshire. Fabricated by Clive Smart of Shapecraft UK using the aforementioned body buck the alloy coachwork was completed and mounted to the chassis during 2003.

Initially almost identical to its forebear the newcomer enjoyed a greater turn of outright speed (up to 75mph depending on the type of bodywork fitted) notably superior acceleration and improved economy thanks to an enlarged 3 669cc version of the company s proven OHV straight-six engine. Fed by a single Rolls-Royce carburettor and carrying both magneto and coil ignition the super-smooth powerplant was mounted in unit with a four-speed manual gearbox - this was operated via a traditional right-hand change and featured synchromesh on the top two ratios from 1932 onwards. Capable of supporting a wide variety of coachwork to personal taste the 20 25hp s substantial ladder frame chassis was equipped with all-round semielliptic leaf-sprung suspension four-wheel drum brakes and a mechanical servo. Progressively developed the Rolls-Royce 20 25hp remained in production until 1936 by which time some 3 827 are thought to have been sold making it the company s best-selling model between the wars.

The current proprietor of the garage informed us that his father Tom Bacon was quite well known in the local area for driving around in this E-Type. Clearly an enthusiast Mr Bacon owned five V12 versions when he passed away in around 2005. Original paint on the door and bonnet hinges lead us to believe that the car was originally finished in Opalescent Silver Blue and after sporting a red hue for a while the car was navy blue when Mr Bacon sold it at an unknown date to a Mr J A Dyson. Our vendor purchased the car in around 1978 from Mr Dyson (the accompanying sales invoice is undated) and at that time the car was able to be driven but in need of restoration. In around 1983 our engineer vendor commenced restorative works and got as far as stripping rejuvenating and reassembling the original matchingnumbers engine as well as the gearbox and rear axle. After stripping the paint from the body he braced it with tubes and installed new floor sections (including the boot floor) that had been purchased from Martin Robey. A hobby of constructing racing and aerobatic aircraft eventually turned into a business and opportunities to work on the E-Type became scarce. Since a house move in 1990 the car has remained in the loft of his barn and only returned to ground level in early 2017 (using a borrowed crane) in preparation for its sale. We are delighted to offer this early example at our IWM Duxford venue as appropriately two airplanes that the vendor constructed are stored at this famous Museum.

Would-be drivers don t require the talent of a Rosemeyer or Stuck just a pair of willing feet and a body under 1.35 metres tall. The pedal cars were born from Audi s search for a signature piece to spearhead its lifestyle collection. The Type C was already one of the best-selling period models in the company s miniature range and it was realised a pedal car version would ably mirror the company s heritage on a far larger scale. The technical drawings originated in the company s own tool shop and each example comprises no less than 900 components.

European manufacture had however been curtailed more than twenty-five years earlier on January 18th 1978 to be precise and this significant chapter in automotive history was marked in a number of ways. For Britain it was celebrated with the creation of 300 Last Edition 1200Ls each of which had Metallic Silver paintwork matched with Dark Blue cloth covered seats. They also featured padded dashboards rear parcel shelves heated rear windows and a special Last Edition plaque on the glovebox lid. The sale car is No.65 of that 300 run and retains its plaque to this day. Its old style blue and white V5 confirms it was registered new in the name of the Listerdale Motor Company of Bawtry Road Wickersley Rotherham. This was part of the Gilder Group and this special Beetle was a member of the company s collection of promotional vehicles that were regularly rotated between its 19 showrooms to encourage additional footfall. As it was never re-registered when title for the cars passed to the group s Chairman it technically remains a one owner vehicle that has covered 26 000 miles to date.

Though to most eyes visually similar to the many versions that had gone before they arguably featured the most radical updates imposed on the model during its amazingly long existence. These included MacPherson Strut front suspension which improved the handling and created more boot space and also permitted the fitment of front disc brakes. From 1972 the 1303 had a more safety-oriented padded facia and wraparound windscreen plus larger tail lights. Power came from the usual air-cooled options of 44bhp 1285cc flat-four and a 50bhp 1584cc unit in the same configuration. It is true that purists don t currently reserve the same passion for these cars as the earlier ones but those attitudes are softening. It was in this form that the immortal Beetle remained in production in Mexico as late as 2003 giving rise to a total production figure for the model of an astonishing 21 529 464 spread over 65 years. Acquired for the Gilder Group Collection in 2002 and since registered to its Chairman this lovely-looking timewarp Beetle has driven just 17 700 miles from new (that s an average of just 421 miles a year ) - a fact corroborated by the accompanying stamped service book.

WET 914K was sold new in 1972 by the Listerdale Motor Company (part of the Gilder Group) to Raymond Clarke of Wickersley Rotherham.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Audi s Quattro is a legend that re-wrote the form book of international rallying as well as causing rival manufacturers to rethink their offerings to members of the public desiring road cars of above average traction. It was quite literally a trail blazer. The story began with Audi chassis engineer J rg Bensinger who spent a Finnish winter testing the Volkswagen Iltis - a four-wheel drive West German military and forest service vehicle - and found it could out perform all other machines on snow whatever their type or power output. He put the idea of a four-wheel drive version of the Audi 80 Coupe to the company s hierarchy and well you know the rest. The resulting model was launched to great excitement at the 1980 Geneva Salon and then released to European customers later the same year. It was initially powered a 2144cc in-line five-cylinder 10-valve SOHC unit with turbocharger and intercooler. This was the first time the mass car market had been introduced to the intoxicating combination of turbo power and four-wheel drive and the results were electric. Motor magazine rocketed their test car to 30mph in a dismissive 1.8 seconds and to 60mph in 6.5 seconds causing them to comment .such acceleration can hardly be bettered by any other fourseater in current production and that was irrespective of engine size. With such a devastating weapon at its disposal Audi wasted no time in taking on the rallying establishment. The results came thick and fast with victory for versions of the model in the 1982 and 1984 Manufacturers Championship and in the Drivers one for Hannu Mikkola in 1983 and Stig Blomqvist in 1984. It was also in a Quattro that the female French ace Michelle Mouton became the first woman ever to win a World Championship rally and was very unlucky not to enjoy outright victory in the 1982 Championship. During its production cycle what enthusiasts now refer to as the Ur (original) Quattro enjoyed two engine upgrades and continuous development but the basic concept never changed and even the outward appearance altered very little. Boasting its own dedicated assembly line and 70 crew some 11 452 examples are understood to have been completed between 1980 and 1991. Enthusiasts will never totally agree on a list of cars that changed the world but few would deny Audi s Ur Quattro a place. The sale car is a special version of a special breed. A true time-warp example it was manufactured to right-hand drive specification in 1985 and is therefore powered by the original 2144cc 10-valve engine. It is finished in Tornado Red trimmed in Dark Grey and cheque English Tweed and rides on immaculate period-correct alloy wheels. It is so original the vendor was moved to tell us that to the best of my knowledge the Quattro has never even had a touchup stick applied to it or one of its wheels refurbished . It was supplied new to its first and only private keeper by the Gilder Group and then acquired by the company as a promotional tool some years later. Apparently the odometer was replaced in 1990 but the old one comes with the car and the total mileage travelled currently stands at a fully warranted 8 200 This collectors dream is being offered complete with its original WR engine and factory stickers an MOT valid into March of next year plus a letter of provenance relating to its time in the Gilder Group Collection of Audis and VWs. That an original Quattro is a desirable classic is beyond discussion. The problem is that many have been used and abused and could be expensive to return to prime condition.

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 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 this particular example - chassis S817502 - was factory finished in Cream with Red leather upholstery and a Black hood. A Special Equipment model its original specification also comprised a C-Type cylinder head twin exhaust system wire wheels with centre-lock fixing and twin fog lamps. Dispatched to Max Hoffman s famous New York dealership on 18th June 1955 the Jaguar is known to have belonged to Florence Caruso Richard Reitter and Herbert Simms amongst others whilst Stateside. Repatriated as a stalled project during 1988 the XK140 was first UK registered as TSK 491 on May 1st 1992 to Anthony Jackson of Henleyin-Arden by which time it had been extensively restored including a conversion from left- to right-hand drive. Briefly belonging to Stephen Murphy of Wolverton the Drophead Coupe was acquired by its previous keeper William Brown of Colton on October 13th 1994 for 34 500. Forming part of the JDHT s Hall of Fame display at the Top Gear Classic & Sportscar Show on May 6th-8th 1995 which saw eighty-two cars corralled to celebrate sixty years of the Jaguar marque chassis S817502 went on to win various Jaguar Drivers Club Concours d Elegance awards (including two 1st places). A keen enthusiast whose garage also housed an Aston Martin DB5 and Big Healey Mr Brown entrusted the XK140 to Phil Kennedy of Renascence Classic Cars for a cosmetic refresh in 1997 (photos on file). The following two years saw the Drophead Coupe uprated by renowned marque specialist Classic Motor Cars of Bridgnorth with a view to enhancing its drivability reliability and driving dynamics. As well as having its 3.4 litre engine attended to (re-ground crankshaft new shell bearings unleaded fuel cylinder head conversion) the Jaguar gained a Getrag five-speed manual gearbox and diaphragm clutch Cambridge Motor Sport hi-torque starter motor electronic ignition alternator and negative earth conversion more modern spin-on oil filter higher capacity radiator expansion tank electric cooling fan electric fuel pump Moto Lita steering wheel glovebox concealed Brantz trip meter and custom-built bucket seats (originals retained with the car).

Thoroughly enjoyed by the vendor over the last eleven years the Drophead Coupe is said to have proved very reliable consuming no more than a pint of oil during a tour through England Scotland and Wales during 2016.

Sometime later (c.1950) it was equipped with a K2 body before being imported to New Zealand by Mr James Julian George. Little is then known about the car until its purchase by Rob Williams in 1974. For the next 20 years he vigorously campaigned the Allard in gymkhanas and hillclimbs until in his own words the original 3.6-litre (221ci) side-valve engine was knackered . At this point the car was treated to a complete restoration and the engine refurbished around a later 3.9-litre (235ci) block and Offenhauser finned aluminium 400 heads to which other performance parts were added.

The moniker was finally first employed in 1971 on the Coupe and Convertible versions of the Silver Shadow. In common with the Shadow the newcomer was penned by in-house designer John Polwhele Blatchley and the underbody and floorpan crafted by Pressed Steel Fisher. Initial assembly (including alloy bonnet bootlid and doors) was then carried out by Mulliner Park Ward. At this stage the cars were transported to the main factory in Crewe for the installation of the running gear before returning to London for the trimming painting and finishing. Power was provided by the company s long-standing 6.75-litre V8 that was mated to a GM Turbo Hydramatic 400 three-speed automatic transmission. Suspension was independent by coil springs all round augmented by a Citroen-originated hydraulic self-levelling system. Braking was by discs with ventilated units phased in for 1972. The model received a mild update in 1977 when alloy and rubber bumpers replaced the earlier chromed items and new style wheel rims and reversing lights were fitted.

It was the work of the legendary Harley Earl and inspired by the great European road race offerings of the day. It borrowed its name - of French origin - from centuries of small fast warships. The newcomer was first seen in concept form at the New York Auto Show and generated sufficient interest for General Motors to hand-build a batch of 300 Polo White Convertibles. Sales slow at first had built to no less than 14 000 per annum by the introduction of the C2 10 years later. The C1 received multiple cosmetic updates along the way the most significant of which came in 1958 when the nose was lengthened and dual headlights introduced. The model was initially only available with a straight-six powerplant but soon progressed to V8 power units of varying horsepower with various transmission options.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION After a lengthy gestation period the now ubiquitous Porsche 911 entered production in 1964 and despite Porsche s own attempts to replace the model with the 928 in the 1970s much evolved versions of it remain in production to this day. The design was the work of Dr Ferry Porsche s eldest son Ferdinand Alexander Butzi Porsche and the company s joint founder and chief body engineer Erwin Komenda Introduced in late 1966 the 911S featured a more powerful version of its standard sibling s air-cooled 1991cc flat-six engine. Credited with developing 160bhp and 132lbft of torque thanks to a reprofiled camshaft higher compression ratio larger valves better porting and bigger carburettor jets etc the newcomer also benefited from a rear antiroll bar Koni shock absorbers vented disc brakes and unsprung weight saving Fuchs five-spoke alloy wheels. 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. Able to humble 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 . We cannot recall ever having been offered a stunning Sand Beige short wheelbase Porsche 911 S before and having a matching pair in the same sale is probably an unprecedented occurrence for any auction house. This one is the most remarkable of the two cars however in that it is completely original and has never been restored. A left-hand drive example it was sold new to the USA where it was delivered to a William G Cooper of Dallas Texas in the Autumn of 1967. Mr Cooper evidently campaigned it regularly in motor club events such as the Porsche Parade of 1969 in California. It was in 1979 that he passed it on to 84 a friend from Florida Calvin Anstey who retained the Porsche until 2014 at which point it was acquired by its current keeper. The car still wears its factory applied paint which is in very good condition if arguably slightly reduced in thickness after years of being polished. A few touched in stone chips add to the endearing patina. The Black leatherette interior is equally original and the panel gaps as per factory specification. The indicated mileage is an unwarranted but highly credible (1)12 000 miles. This matching numbers 911 comes complete with good documentation including Porsche Classic certificate and original service book. Its previous owner treated the car to regular use and serviced it as required thus keeping it mechanically sound. The most recent keeper had the carburettors cleaned and adjusted together with the ignition changed some of the rubber fuel lines overhauled the brakes and part of the suspension and undertook a comprehensive service. Amazingly no further attention was required and the Porsche recently completed a 1000mls Alpine tour free of any issues. Early 911s have been strong currency for some time now. Many solid short wheelbase chassis have been snapped up by the classic rally fraternity further diminishing the already small pool of original road cars. The opportunity to purchase an example of the much sought after 911 S version in as original condition as this one is therefore a potentially very exciting one for Porsche enthusiasts everywhere and we imagine the bidding will be hard fought.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Always keen to present customers with as much choice as possible Rolls-Royce overlapped the production lives of the Silver Cloud III and its Silver Shadow successor by more than a year. While the latter model was undeniably more technologically advanced it was (a) initially only available as a four-door standard steel saloon and (b) lacked the sheer road presence grandeur of its forebear. Based around a version of the Bentley 9 modular platform the Cloud III may not have been cutting edge by 1966 standards but it was still a wonderfully refined motorcar. Featuring independent coil and wishbone front suspension a leaf-sprung semi-floating back axle (complete with hypoid bevel final drive) hydraulic shock absorbers (adjustable at the rear) power steering and servo-assisted drum brakes its enormously strong cruciform-braced box-section chassis provided a wonderful foundation for coachbuilders to practice their art. Powered by a 6230cc OHV V8 mated to four-speed automatic transmission it also had the benefit of near 120mph performance. Society in the 1960s however was changing rapidly and among others the era of the chauffeur-driven car was coming to an end. Rolls-Royce had to make changes too. One of the more striking designs available this Mulliner Park Ward Drophead Coupe was aimed at owner-drivers. It owed its beautifully sleek profile to Norwegian-born stylist Vilhelm Koren who pioneered its straightthrough wing line and cut-back wheelarches on the Bentley S2 Continental chassis. Afterwards these lines were successfully carried over to its successors and also to the initially more conservative Rolls-Royces. Visually updated by the diagonal placement of their quad headlights which gave it its nickname Chinese Eye the Koren-designed Cloud IIIs (available in both fixed- and drophead coupe guises) thus boasted a decidedly avant-garde yet majestic look. Not surprisingly the modernist design attracted a younger clientele like actors and musicians. Offered here is Drophead Coupe chassis CSC11B that was delivered new by Jack Barclay to a Mr Sidney E Dale of Plaistow London on May 17th 1965. It started life in Regal Red but received a change of image in the 1980s and is these days finished in the elegant combination of Mid Metallic Blue teamed with Beige hide interior. The car contains numerous factory options like a heavy gauge frame an electrically operated aerial electric windows with emergency manually-operated handles cranks an electrically operated hood mechanism hood cover and a radio. It also has a cocktail cabinet with crystal glasses and carafe under the dashboard. The Rolls- 85 Royce s next keeper was none other than Kenney Jones one time drummer for the Small Faces Faces and later The Who after the death of Keith Moon. In 1993 the Coupe passed to another famous musician Mr Evangelos Papathanassiou better known as Vangelis who retained it for the next twenty-three years yet hardly ever drove it. The Rolls-Royce was recently unearthed from a London garage and though running well its general lack of use means that a degree of re-commissioning would be advisable - especially in relation to the brakes and electric hood mechanism. The vendor currently grades the engine and transmission as very good and the coachwork paintwork and interior trim as good .

No less impressive were the three Coupe des Alpes that Ian and Pat Appleyard won aboard their famous XK120 Roaster NUB 120 . The latter s successor RUB 120 enabled the Appleyards to claim their fifth and final Coupe des Alpes on the 1953 Alpine Rally. Always one to exploit loopholes Jaguar s Competition Manager Lofty England recommended that RUB 120 be re-bodied from a Roadster to a Drophead Coupe so that it could contest the Viking Rally in Norway as a four-seater (the newly introduced Drophead Coupe featuring a pair of token rear seats absent from its Roadster and Fixed Head Coupe siblings). As things transpired the Appleyards instead used a MKVII saloon for the event but RUB 120 did contest the 1953 Lisbon Rally in Drophead Coupe guise. Despite a typically spirited drive to second overall in Portugal Appleyard just missed out on being crowned the first European Rally Champion. According to its accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate this particular XK120 chassis number 667032 was built as a right-hand drive Drophead Coupe and dispatched to first owner S.H. Newsome & Co Ltd on 6th October 1953 (the same month that the similarly configured RUB 120 found itself in Portugal). No stranger to Jaguar S.H. Sammy Newsome had achieved Le Mans class wins for the likes of Lea-Francis Aston Martin and Riley before campaigning various SS100s to great effect including a works entry on the 1939 RAC Rally. His dealership was among Coventry s most successful turning over 1 million per year by the late 1950s. As such Sammy Newsome held considerable sway with various manufacturers which might explain why the Heritage Certificate for chassis 667032 includes the remark from Chief Archivist and Jaguar historian Anders Ditlev Clausager that This was an Ex Works Car . We have not unearthed any racing or rallying history for the XK120 but have little doubt that Jaguar s Competition Department would have approved of the transformation that it underwent in 1999. In becoming Broad Sport 0009 chassis 667032 was not only re-born as a Roadster (the opposite of Lofty England s suggestion for RUB 120 ) but also extensively uprated for fast road eventing usage. Fed by triple SU carburettors the 4.2 litre XK DOHC engine was reputedly reworked to deliver circa 300bhp. Allied to a Getrag five-speed manual gearbox it drove the back wheels via an XK150 rear axle complete with limited slip differential 3.54 1 ratio and strengthened shafts. A Panhard Rod kit and adjustable tramp bars acted on the rear XK150 leaf springs while upfront many of the suspension components were nickel plated and their action tempered by an anti-roll bar. A rack and pinion set-up gave more precise steering and fourwheel disc brakes (four-pot callipers front XJS callipers rear) yielded far greater retardation. Adjustable shock absorbers were fitted to all four corners and the radiator expansion tank oil catch tank and fuel tank all fabricated from alloy. Finished in Jaguar Midnight Blue with Dark Blue Connolly leather bucket seats visual clues as to the XK120 s significantly improved performance handling capabilities include a Monza fuel filler cap Works-style louvered bonnet (complete with double buckle leather retaining straps) wood-rimmed Moto Lita steering wheel vented front wings Luke racing harnesses and D-Type Dunlop alloy wheels. Purchased from renowned marque specialist Lynx by Robert Farago of Berkshire in February 2000 the 87 XK120 entered the current ownership the following year. Successfully re-united with its original registration number OHP 625 by the vendor his ongoing business commitments mean that he has exercised the Jaguar less than he would have wished. Thus the 2 200 miles shown by its odometer may well represent the total covered since Guy Broad reincarnated the car as a much-enhanced two-seater Roadster.

Whilst the XK120 stole the show the Mark V vastly outsold it by roughly 5 000 cars per year as compared to 2 000 cars per year for the XK120. The Mark V retained the 1946-48 driveline including the overhead-valve pushrod straight-six 2 and 3 -litre engines. The chassis was new however with independent front suspension by double wishbones and torsion bar a feature of many future offerings from Jaguar. It also had hydraulic brakes and an all pressed steel body. Just 108 RHD 3 -litre drophead coupes were produced as most were built for the LHD export market. One of just eight examples originally exported to New Zealand this impeccably restored Mk V was first registered to a Mrs Hope of Te Puke. It spent the following years in the northern region before being barn discovered in 1994 in Taupo central North Island. A restoration was commenced by stripping the car to the last nut and bolt. The chassis was then checked for corrosion and alignment. Finding no serious rust issues it was dip-stripped in an acid bath and neutralised in an alkaline bath before priming and painting. The internal sections were tectel treated. The running gear was then addressed with bushes tie rod ends and bearings etc. being replaced. The braking system was rebuilt with new piping and PBR booster. A new radiator core was fitted with new aluminium castings (manifolds etc.) and the water pump reconditioned. The 3 1 2 -litre engine was extensively reconditioned and balanced and a new rocker shaft and felt wicks installed. The gearbox was overhauled with new seals to prevent oil leaks whilst new bearings were fitted to the differential. The body was then subjected to the dipping process all panels were metal finished and body solder was used as per original specification. All chrome parts were triple plated. This process took many months carried out by Steve Roberts of Wanganui one of the most respected of New Zealand constructors. 88 Interestingly when the body was completed following inspection by their chemists Ford Motor Company in Auckland allowed it to be placed on their assembly line for undercoating and preparation for final painting. A new wiring loom was installed and the instruments were refurbished by Parrotts of Christchurch. Other aluminium trims were replaced with brass apart from the Landau bars. Trimming in sumptuous red Connolly hide was completed by George Lee of Christchurch examples of his work having won numerous concours events including those at Pebble Beach. The grey hood was sourced from an ex-Coventry supplier at Wembley. After completion the painstaking work was rewarded with a premium award for Best Restoration at the Easter 2003 Jaguar National Rally (NZ).

This stylish Volvo is expected to possess a new MoT by the time of sale. The retrospectively named Mk 1 made its debut in 1955 powered by a 2.4-litre short-stroke version of the XK120 s twin-cam six-cylinder engine. In early 1957 the model became available with the larger 3.4-litre unit developing some 210bhp which had already appeared in the Jaguar Mark VIII. The 3.4 had a larger front grille for better cooling a stronger rear axle and the rear-wheel covers were cut away to accommodate knock-off hubcaps. Mark I 3.4 saloons competed successfully in competition in period notable drivers including Stirling Moss Mike Hawthorn Tommy Sopwith and Roy Salvadori. 991 UYT was sold new in New Zealand and first registered in December 1958. In the 1990s the car was taken to Australia by its then owner where it received a cosmetic restoration covering the interior and a respray in metallic green. At the same time it also received coombs style rear arches and bonnet vents together with the addition of power steering. It returned to New Zealand in 2006 before being imported to the UK in 2016.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Introduced in 1946 the MKVI quickly developed a reputation for being a refined yet responsive drive. However despite the excellence of the factory-clothed Standard Steel Saloon there remained a core of marque enthusiasts who found its styling too anonymous. Conscious of this demand Bentley invited various firms to submit Drophead Coupe proposals for its newcomer s chassis. Vanden Plas rendering was altogether sleeker and handsomer than that of the factory s in-house coachbuilder Park Ward. However it was also costlier and more labour intensive to produce. Hence Vanden Plas are understood to have fitted this particular design of Drophead Coupe coachwork to just six Bentley MKVI chassis. One of the illustrious sextet chassis B245AJ wears the renowned London cochabuilder s body number 4043 and was supplied new via Jack Barclay Ltd of Hanover Square W1 to Group Captain Hon. Max Aitken DSO DFC MP of 39 Albert Court SW7 on 11th December 1947 for the princely sum of 5 702. A director of the Express Group and later Chairman of Beaverbrook Newspapers he kept the Bentley until 1950 (the same year he lost his seat in the House of Commons due to an unfavourable boundary change) when it was bought by W.J. Norton Esq. of Sir James Farmer Norton & Co Ltd Adelphi Iron Works Salford Manchester for 3 850. Acquired by its previous keeper during the 1970s as a means of making the right impression with wealthy clients the MKVI was subsequently dry stored in a farm outbuilding for decades. Rescued by the vendor in 2010 the Drophead Coupe was found to be surprisingly sound and sported a sticker for marque specialist Frank Dale & Stepson. It is pure supposition but the seller thinks that Frank Dale & Stepson may well have mechanically overhauled the Bentley because he soon had it running sweetly and even as a professional restorer only found it necessary to replace the brake hoses and seals plus one top front suspension bush Principally fabricated from aluminium the elegant coachwork was refurbished as necessary and repainted in Garnet over Silver a combination which makes the most 93 of its refinished chrome detailing. Pleasingly almost all the original Red leather upholstery proved usable once fed while other signs that the car had led something of a charmed life included the retention of most of its tools and the original factory chalk marks on its chassis side rails (now varnished over for posterity). The interior woodwork was rejuvenated and the Red mohair hood renewed. Running and driving upon inspection the Bentley rides on radial tyres which are said to give it notably more positive roadholding. It is not inconceivable that the 26 000 miles currently shown by the odometer represent either the total covered from new or the distance travelled since a major mechanical rejuvenation. The wiring has been checked and repaired and details such as the rear interior lights are in working order as are the more modern stereo and sat-nav power feed.

I m just glad that beauty isn t always just skin deep Piston Heads Heroes BMW 2002 Turbo Ollie Stallwood Introduced at the 1973 Frankfurt Motor Show the 2002 Turbo was among the first roadgoing models to be developed by BMW s legendary Motorport GmbH division. Incorporating lessons learnt from the forced induction 2002 which had helped Dieter Quester win the 1969 European Touring Car Championship the newcomer utilised a single KKK turbocharger to boost its fuel-injected 1990cc SOHC four-cylinder engine to 170bhp and 181lbft of torque. A four-speed manual gearbox was standard as was a limited slip differential but - like Porsche s iconic 911 Carrera RS 2.7 of the same era - buyers could choose from a range of performance and comfort enhancing options such as a five-speed transmission 6x13-inch alloy wheels and a lockable glove box lid etc Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and 131mph the 2002 Turbo featured a thicker front anti-roll bar height adjustable rear springs Bilstein shock absorbers and strengthened trailing arms hubs and stub axles in comparison to its 2002 tii sibling. It also boasted vented front discs and larger rear drums plus its floorpan incorporated thicker front frame rails reinforced rear suspension mounts a bespoke front panel and altered boot floor. Wonderfully purposeful looking the BMW sported a deep front air dam boot lid mounted rubber spoiler and bolt-on wheel arch extensions. Available in either Chamonix White or Polaris Silver both teamed with Black leatherette upholstery the 2002 Turbo developed a reputation for catching novice drivers out. Of the 1 660 production versions made between January 1974 and July 1975 94 (plus 12 pre-production cars) just 500 or so are thought to have survived to the present day. Finished in Chamonix White with Black leatherette upholstery and the obligatory Red instrument surround this particular 5-speed example chassis number 4291125 - is presumed to have been supplied new to Italy. Resident there when acquired by its previous keeper fifteen years ago the 2002 Turbo became a showroom exhibit for his long running and successful BMW dealership in Malaga (the Guarnieri Group also hold Porsche Ferrari Rolls-Royce McLaren and Pagani franchises). Looking over the car it is not hard to see how or why a BMW aficionado would fall for its charms. We would not pretend to be experts on the model but it does come across as being unusually original and well preserved with no obvious signs of accident damage or structural corrosion repair that we could detect. Indeed the vendor who acquired the 2002 Turbo during 2015 tells us UK marque specialist Munich Legends were of the opinion that the car s low odometer reading (currently 23 720km) was commensurate with the lack of internal engine wear they observed.

The fundamental difference is that while the other Porsche has never been restored this one has been the subject of a documented 1 500hour refurbishment to arguably better than new condition courtesy of a German Porsche expert. Another left-hand drive example it was sold new to the USA and delivered to its first owner in Texas on May 12th 1967. The second owner acquired the car in 1979 and it remained part of his private Tallahassee collection until 2015. It was the current owner who made the decision to have it completely restored. Dip coated in a cathodic bath for maximum rust protection the bodywork was then re-painted using Glasurit products to ensure that it got as close as possible to original specification. Treated to a thorough mechanical overhaul the Coupe also had its electrics and interior rejuvenated. Introduced in late 1966 the 911S featured a more powerful version of its standard sibling s air-cooled 1991cc flat-six engine. Credited with developing 160bhp and 132lbft of torque thanks to a reprofiled camshaft higher compression ratio larger valves better porting and bigger carburettor jets etc the newcomer also benefited from a rear anti-roll bar (to augment the front one) Koni shock absorbers vented disc brakes and unsprung weight saving Fuchs five-spoke alloy wheels. 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. Able to humble more 95 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 .

Indeed the graceful new two-door convertible grand tourer penned by Karl Wilfert and Walter H cker was sold alongside the roadgoing version of the SLR - the 300 SL - whose styling it strongly resembled. In fact the underpinnings of the two cars were quite different and while the 300 SL had a purpose-built tubular spaceframe (W198) its smaller sibling was built on a shortened version of the Ponton Saloon (W121) platform which was of radically different monocoque construction. The 190 SL also boasted an all-new engine - based on the six-cylinder unit of the 300 SL it was an over-square SOHC straight-four unit of 1 897cc that breathed through a pair of twin-choke Solex downdraft carburettors to produce some 104bhp which was sufficient might to accelerate the Benz to 100kph in 14.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 112mph. The unit was coupled to a manual four-speed gearbox operated by a lever sited between the seats. The suspension comprised double wishbones and coil springs at the front and coil sprung swing axles at the rear. Steering was by recirculating ball and braking by power-assisted drums at all four corners. Built to the highest standards and among the nimblest cars of its type at the time the 190 SL featured a wellappointed cockpit notable comfort for its occupants and relatively generous luggage space. Under the circumstances even the steep asking price of 2 693 did nothing to deter purchasers. The convertible could be ordered with or without removable hard top (the rear window of which was enlarged from 1959 onwards) and there was also the option of a third seat placed transversely behind the front ones and big enough to carry an adult. Last but not least in the early years the model could be ordered in sports racing guise complete with small Perspex windscreen lightweight alloy doors and spartan leather-covered bucket seats. The 190 SL continued in production until 1963 when both it and the 300 SL were replaced by the W113 Series 230 SL. By 98 this time some 25 881 190 SLs had been built the majority of which found homes in the USA where its combination of sporty styling and boulevard ride proved especially popular. The simply stunning left-hand drive example being sold has White bodywork that s matched to a Red hide interior. Having vacated the Stuttgart production line it was apparently delivered new to Mercedes-Benz Switzerland in 1960. At some point it then found its way across the Atlantic to the USA before being repurchased by the original owner in 1994 and imported to the UK. It was at this stage it was treated to a lengthy 24 000 restoration featuring only original 190 SL components. The Benz was then purchased by the vendor to form part of his private collection and it was the decision to now reduce the size of that collection that has brought the car to market at this time.

Styling and horsepower were the watchwords of 50s American car design and no examples epitomised the thinking more than the voluptuous Harley Earl-penned Cadillacs. Power for the 1953 Coupe de Ville was provided by a 5.4-litre (331ci) V8 rated at 210hp and 330lbft of torque. Having one parked on your driveway would have set you back 3 995 before extras and the total production run for that year was 14 550. Finished in Black over Yellow with Green leather and cloth upholstery this particular example is deemed by the vendor to be highly presentable and in good running order . The Caddy s impressive specification includes the following desirable options power steering autronic eye automatic headlamp control (green) tinted glass throughout power brakes and power windows. Sadly all its paperwork was stolen en route to Europe but when previously viewed it apparently confirmed that in excess of 25 000 had been invested in parts materials and re-chroming alone since 2011. The car resided in Southern California from the 80s until reaching Europe and for a long time was owned by a retired aircraft engineer and President of the California Cadillac Owners Club who carried out all the technical work himself. The highly appropriate registration number 53 CAD forms parts of the sale though the number is currently on retention rather than attached to the car itself. Examples of 50s automotive Americana don t come much bigger or more imposing than this. ALL ESTIMATES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION According to its accompanying paperwork the lefthand drive 512 M being sold left the Modena production line in late 1995 and was delivered to its first keeper via the Dutch Ferrari importer Kroymans - it was finished in the classic Prancing Horse colour of Rossa Corsa and trimmed in Pelle Nera hide. It then spent some time as part of a Japanese collection before being imported to the UK in 2015 and granted the registration N221 VEC in March 2016. The Ferrari s history file contains many invoices for maintenance work carried in the Far East as well as a related DVD containing scores of photographs of this work. There are also a pair of 2015 bills from SB Race Engineering of Watford totaling over 6 500 that include charges for a cambelt change work on the suspension the replacement of tyres all round and repairs and paintwork to the engine cover. The vendor regards the Testarossa s bodywork paintwork interior trim 12-cylinder engine and five-speed manual gearbox to all be in excellent order. Its odometer currently displays a mere 26 583 kilometers (c.16 500 miles) and the 512M is now being offered complete with original leather tool case the aforementioned invoices Swansea V5C and a current MOT valid to July 19. As the world moves away from multi-cylinder internal combustion engines towards hybrids and the silence of electric vehicles the sonorous sound of a Ferrari flat-twelve can surely only become more treasured. Though an evolution of the 512 BBi Ferrari s Pininfarinapenned mid-engined flat-12 Testarossa was of markedly different appearance. In order not to recreate the high cabin temperatures of its predecessor it featured a pair of rear-mounted radiators rather than the 512BBi s single front-mounted one. This called for large slatted intake ducts leading from the doors and rear quarter panels and it was these that gave the newcomer both its distinctive looks and considerable girth - at 77.8 inches it was nearly 6 inches wider than the 512BBi. The model was also longer and higher resulting in more passenger and luggage accommodation. The Testarossa name (Italian for Red Head ) was an echo of Ferrari s immortal Testa Rossa sports racing cars of the 1950s and the engine s cam covers were painted red as 103 before. The five-litre Colombo-designed unit was very similar to that of the 512 BBi but featured four-valves per cylinder. Together with other improvements this resulted in a healthy output of 390bhp. The Testarossa reigned for seven years before metamorphosing into the 512 TR and finally the limited edition 512M. The 512M is distinguished by its open rather than concealed headlamps the NACA ducts at the top of the bonnet circular tail lamps and restyled bumpers. Inside the gearknob was given a chrome finish the aluminium pedals were drilled air conditioning was standard fit and carbonfibre racing seats available at no extra cost. Both Pininfarina and Ferrari flags adorned the facia. Still more output was extracted from the engine which was now capable of 440bhp at 6 750rpm and 370 lb ft of torque at 5 500rpm. New titanium conrods and a revised crankshaft knocked 16 lbs off the previous weight of these components and permitted a revised rev limit of 7 500rpm. The improvements meant the Red Head could now complete the all-important 0-60mph dash in 4.7 seconds that to 100mph in 10.2 seconds and attain an optimum speed of just 4mph shy of the magic 200mph. The 512M was not only the final iteration of the iconic Testarossa it was also the last Ferrari to be powered by a flat-12 engine a configuration synonymous with their F1 cars of the 1970s. Unlike the Testarossa and the 512 TR which came before it the 512M was a limited edition model and just 501 examples were produced between 1994 and 1996.

Under the skin the two shared the same platform chassis DeDion rear axle independent front suspension power steering and disc brakes. Another carry over was the quad-cam 5340cc V8 engine allied to either five-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission. Credited with developing some 310bhp and 360lbft - thanks in part to its Bosch mechanical fuel-injection system - the model was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 6 seconds and almost 160mph (figures which would not be properly eclipsed until the arrival of the fearsome Vantage). Only in production for fifteen months just 288 of the first generation twin headlight V8s are thought to have been made.

Registering some 94 500 miles we understand that by the time of sale the original registration number will have been reallocated. Fitted with a stainless-steel exhaust system and riding on freshly refurbished wheels the previously re-trimmed interior has been complimented with new carpets. Although presently disconnected (due to no pump being present) the car was fitted with A C from the factory and an invoice included in the history file states that an unleaded conversion took place as well as 580 valve upgrade. The mechanics have been inspected by Seven classics and a brake overhaul carried out. It is believed the engine was previously overhauled and has recently been set up correctly ready to enjoy.

We are told that the work was thorough and documented with photographs and included a rejuvenation of the engine (believed to be the car s original unit) and gearbox as well as the brakes wiring loom and the interior.

Perhaps predictably conversation turned to the possibility of a third collaboration between the two companies following in the wheeltracks of the DB4GT Zagato and V8 Zagato models. Unveiled in August 2002 first at Gieves and Hawkes of Saville Row and then Pebble Beach the resultant DB7 Zagato was only type approved for the UK European and Asian markets but proved a near instant sell out. Aston Martin capped production at 99 cars (60 RHD 39 LHD) but received orders for over 300 despite a 60% price premium over the regular DB7 Vantage. Compared to the latter the newcomer boasted a shorter wheelbase lower kerb weight and uprated brakes suspension. Styled by Zagato s Nori Harada with input from Aston Martin s Henrik Fisker the two-seater sported an aggressively enlarged radiator grille trademark double bubble roof undulating rear windscreen and heavily sculpted sides.

Introduced in 1996 the model was the first Peter Wheeler-era TVR to feature the following fixed head coachwork 2 2-seating and inhouse engines. Designed by race engineer Al Melling and inspired by contemporary Formula One practice the new AJP8 Speed Eight V8 initially displaced 4.2-litres but later grew to 4.5 and 4.7-litres (a 4-litre in-line Speed Six derivative was subsequently offered too). A ferocious performer the Cerbera 4.2 was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds and 180mph with its more powerful siblings proving faster still. The 1996 example on offer is finished in the striking combination of Crimson Starmist paired with Flint Doeskin interior trim. It was originally built with a 4.2-litre engine but is now powered by a 4.5-litre one that s been remapped and dyno tested at 390bhp and 330lbft of torque. The reason behind the transplant is unclear albeit that TVR are known to have uprated several early Cerberas in a similar fashion due to a spate of failures with the smaller capacity unit.

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).

Reported to retain its original service and hand books the history file has been described as extensive and features many invoices from authorised dealers and specialists such as HR Owen The Chelsea Workshop and Eaton Square Garage as well as a comprehensive selection of previous MOT certificates from 1993 onwards. Documentation shows that a gentleman in Chelsea London purchased the car from Mann Egerton the authorised Rolls-Royce dealership of Dover Street London in October 1990. An invoice from HR Owen in June 1991 records the mileage as 66 333 and during the gentleman s thirteen years of ownership he had only covered just over 8 000 miles when he sold it in June 2003. The next owner a gentleman in Boston Lincolnshire travelled just 2 700 miles during his first four of ownership however he then hardly used the car and the MOT certificate s (which he had issued promptly every June) show he covered just 90 miles between June 2007 and October 2013 at which time the car was acquired by our vendor. The car has continued its leisurely existence with our vendor as only around 60 miles have been driven.

The 170bhp of the new silky smooth powerplant was sufficient to propel the handsome Coupe to 60mph in 8.5 seconds and on to a top speed of a whisker under 130mph. The fully independent suspension was by MacPherson struts up front and semi-trailing arms at the rear. Braking was still by disc drums and the steering by a power-assisted ball and nut system. The 2800CS was supplanted by the 3.0CS and 3.0CSi in 1971 for which the engine was bored out to give a capacity of 2986cc - in fuel-injected CSi guise this produced 200bhp at 5 000rpm.

The work of American-born stylist Tom Tjaarda whilst at Ghia its handsome well-proportioned bodywork clothed all-round independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Powered by a 5763cc Cleveland V8 engine allied to C6 three-speed automatic transmission (both sourced from Ford) the newcomer was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 7.6 seconds and nigh on 145mph. Evolving through two series over the course of a fifteen-year long production run just 244 Deauvilles are thought to have been sold. Decidedly scarce in right-hand drive this example is finished in Rosso-Metallizo and trimmed using Beige leather with Chocolate velour inserts. Last taxed for UK road use some two decades ago the De Tomaso remains on the DVLA database under the registration number RYW 507R . Part of a Continental collection in recent years the Deauville is described by the vendor as being in average overall condition. Though he rates the paintwork as good and tells us that the luxury saloon is smooth and powerful to drive . A rare and attractive motorcar that surely deserves to be returned to its former glory As a result of MG s sale to Morris Motors in 1935 rationalisation was the company s priority during 1935 and all new models shared as many parts as possible with other members of the burgeoning Nuffield Organisation. First off the stocks was the all-new 2-litre (subsequently dubbed the SA). It was a large car by MG standards that was only available as a four-door Saloon at launch but subsequently offered in Tourer and Tickford Drophead Coupe guise as well. Power came from a tuned version of the straight-six Morris QPHG OHV engine initially in 2288cc form but later enlarged to 2322cc - the 75bhp output was sufficient to endow the MG with a top speed of up to 85mph. This right-hand drive SA saloon was manufactured in 1936 and we are informed that the engine gearbox and axles are all part restored and the frame plus body are in good shape finished in primer with the work taking place in the 1980 s before the MG was dry stored. Offered for sale by its long-term keeper SA 1857 is offered with its original title document from Pennsylvania and import paperwork.

The revised bodywork resulted in downforce improving by a factor of four over the F355. Powered by a 3.6-litre V8 coupled to either a six-speed manual or F1 electrohydraulic manual transmission the 360 s lighter weight improved the 0-60 mph dash to just 4.2 seconds with a nominal top speed of over 180mph. In 2001 the spider version was introduced the stiffness of the spaceframe being ideally suited to handle an open top. This was followed in 2003 by the ultimate incarnation - the 360 racing series inspired Challenge Stradale - featuring a number of weight saving and tuning modifications by the factory.

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 148 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.
