1 A 1989 Renault 5TR,

registration number F969

WFX, red. With 42,000 miles

from new, this well presented

five door Renault 5 has been

very well maintained. In the

present ownership the

Renault has had body

repairs, including a new

scuttle by Charles Ware at a

cost of £2,010. The history

file is comprehensive and

includes receipts, MOTs from

1992 (recorded mileage

14,000), owner's handbooks

and operating manuals. This

low mileage Renault would

make an excellent starter

classic and is only for sale

due to a change in the

vendor's plans. V5C, MOT to

February 2017 See

2 A 1989 left hand drive Ford

Escort XR3i, French

registered, white. This

French registered XR3i has

been stored undercover in a

barn for the last four or five

years. The vendor advises us

that the bodywork is sound

but the paintwork is dull and

the interior has no rips or

tears and he believes it

should respond well to

cleaning. He also advises

that the car runs and drives

and the odometer reads

12,761 kilometres, but he

feels that the general

condition of the car would

indicate that this is incorrect

and perhaps it should read

112,761 kilometres. The Ford

is offered for auction as a

project and will require

further recommissioning and

restoration before taking to

the road. French registration

purchased by a Mr J Beale

from G Eric Hunt Ltd BMW

Ferrensby branch at a cost of

£6,400 (original bill of sale on

VYH, red. This limited edition

of 234, three door 147 has

only covered 60,000 miles

Vanden Plas, registration

number C238 GGJ, Oporto

red. With less than 35,000

miles from new, this time

warp condition SD1 was

of Epsom, Surrey. The Rover

has had three previous

owners before it was

purchased by our vendor, a

West Country based

collector, and is finished in a

most attractive colour

combination of Oporto red

with a contrasting oatmeal

cloth interior. The vendor

states that the original tool kit

and wheel brace appear to

have never been used. The

Rover has a history file

containing a run of MOTs

from 1990, which confirm the

removed in July 2016 and

MOTd. The Peugeot is

finished in the usual colour

scheme of black with a full

black leather interior and has

the benefit of the glass

currently SORN and will

probably require some light

recommissioning as it has

not been on the road since

9 WITHDRAWN - to be

offered in our auction on

Sunday 12th February 2017:

A 1939 Ford Prefect,

registration number 929

YUU, black. Being a rare

sliding sunroof model, this

Ford offers a little more than

the usual Prefect. It still

retains its original green

leather interior and engine

which has recently benefited

from a comprehensive

rebuild with new pistons,

piston rings, shell bearings

and clutch. The Prefect is

offered for auction with some

history, including the original

RF60, confirming that original

registration number was DAB

118. The vendor informs us

that this charming Ford is on

the button and has been

used as part of a wedding car

fleet where it has performed

faultlessly. The car is offered

for sale due to its diminutive

size causing problems for

brides entering the vehicle

and is being sold to aid the

purchase of a larger car.

19 A 1971 Lotus Seven

Series 4, registration number

PER 2J, chassis number

S4/2651TC, metallic gold.

With a believed 54,000 miles

from new, this particular S4

was first registered on 4th

January 1971 and was fitted

with the big valve twin cam

Sprint engine which was

unusual at the time (rebuilt

last year) and sprayed in

gold, which was unusual

again as most were sprayed

in Lotus yellow. It is believed

that the Lotus was possibly

the Earls Court Motor Show

display car which was driven

by Graham Hill and used for

testing at the Lotus track in

Norfolk. The Lotus is

supplied with original Lotus

alloy wheels, full weather

gear including tonneau cover,

MOTs to verify the mileage

resprayed in a colour as

close to the original metallic

gold as possible. This rare

TC Lotus Seven has recently

emerged from nearly 18

Chevanne, registration

number GMS 894S, chassis

number 9B70CHX111080,

red. This show winning

Chevanne is one of only a

believed seven registered

examples on the road and

one of less than 20 surviving

examples. The first owner

was SMT in Scotland, a

Vauxhall/Bedford dealer who

used the van for parts

delivery. The second owner

was the SMT workshop

manager, who purchased the

van for his personal use. At

some point the decision was

made to take the van off the

road and it remained in

storage for over 20 years

before a full no expense

spared restoration was

carried out with genuine GM

parts. The third owner was

the workshop managers son

who kept the van for a short

period before selling it to a

Scottish gentleman who saw

it displayed at a classic car

show. There have been two

further owners who have

both cherished and shown

the van extensively before

the current vendor. Having

won several awards and

being featured in numerous

publications over the years

including Classic Van &

Pickup where it has featured

twice including the November

2013 front cover story. This

extremely rare light

commercial is offered with a

history file containing a CD

22 A 1959 Morris Marshal,

unregistered, two tone cream

Morris Marshal was

manufactured by BMC for the

Australian market, with only

approximately 1,000

by the 2.6 litre straight six

derived Healey engine

through a four speed column

change gearbox. During its

time in the Southern

hemisphere the Marshal was

used by a family in Tasmania

who would subsequently

donate the car to a Technical

College for refurbishment by

the students. Since being

imported earlier this year the

Morris has been

recommissioned with a new

fuel tank and rebuilt brakes.

The vendor advises us that

he believes this matching

numbers car to have never

been welded and it is

presented in original

condition with a red and grey

interior. This rare Morris

would make an excellent

towing vehicle for a vintage

caravan or classic racing car.

23 A 1960 Ford Thunderbird

coupé, registration number

GIB 7024, Powder/Baby

blue. Ford's first 'personal

car' the T-Bird was conceived

to challenge Chevrolet's

Corvette and made its debut

in October 1954. Endowed

with Ford's new overhead

valve V8, the car would

remain fundamentally

unchanged until 1958 when

the second generation

Square-Bird was introduced.

This version was longer,

offered four seats and was

the first of the line to adopt

unitary construction. This

particular example was

originally exported to Paris

before finding its way to

England in 1987. Finished in

a very becoming shade of

Powder blue with a

contrasting black and cream

interior. The car is described

by the vendor as being very

original and still retains the

original radio, three speed

Cruisermatic gearbox and

352inc V8. This T-Bird

featured in Classic American

in 1988 (copy supplied with

the car) and has been

extensively exhibited on the

South West Classic Car

scene during the vendor's

eleven year custodianship.

Now only for sale due to the

vendor having moved home

and with it the large garage

where the car resided! The T-

Bird will be accompanied to

auction with a history file and

offers the next custodian a

very rare American car on

British roads. V5C, MOT to

of the now iconic GTi Golf

onto British roads. It would

become not only a popular

fashion item but would also

appeal to an enthusiastic

driver with its top speed of

110 mph and a nine seconds

0-60 time. The Karmann

cabriolet was produced to

replace the evergreen Beetle

and used the Golf saloon

running gear in a bespoke

BMC, Rolls-Royce and the

pre-eminent coach builder,

Vanden Plas collaborated on

several projects, culminating

in the Vanden Plas Princess

The luxury saloon featured a

modified Farina A110 body

with a unique tail design, the

Rolls-Royce FB60 4-litre six

cylinder engine and a

custodian. The Princess

would remain in storage for

eighteen years until being

recommissioned with a brake

overhaul, a new fuel tank,

and carburettor overhaul.

The car was originally

supplied in black over grey,

which was felt a little too

severe. A full quality respray

33 A 1976 left hand drive

Porsche 912E, chassis

number 9126001717, white.

Porsche's 912E is one of the

rarest Porsche models made,

with only 2,099 manufactured

to compliment the 911S in

the lucrative North American

market. The 912E shared the

911S chassis and body

styling but incorporated the

914 fuel injected two litre

derived engine. This 911E

was imported from Arizona in

2015 and was originally

supplied by Alan Johnson

Porsche on 30th June 1976

to its first registered keeper

Dennis Foster & Son. Having

been imported from a dry

state the Porsche has a solid

and rust free body shell. Prior

to being imported the engine

was rebuilt by Lloyd Mosher

Enterprises Porsche and VW

in California. The engine is

fitted with a twin Weber

performance kit which has

been tuned since arriving in

Britain. Further works carried

out have included the

rebuilding of the gearbox,

general servicing and

preparation for the MOT,

which it passed on 1st

September 2016 without any

advisories. The Porsche is

offered for auction with the

original fuel injection system

should the next custodian

wish to reinstate the car to

original specification, the

original warranty and

maintenance manual,

Arizona certificate of title,

HRMC duties paid paperwork

and current MOT. The

Porsche is now ready to be

registered to its first British

owner and offers excellent

value compared to its 911S

counterpart in today's classic

car market. ***MOT to

34 A 1981 Lotus Esprit S3,

registration number HBZ

1590, chassis number


Calypso red. The Giorgetto

Giugiaro's designed Esprit

was launched at the Paris

Auto Show in October 1975,

replacing the Europa in the

Lotus model line. The Esprit

would go on to find fame in

two James Bond movies, The

Spy Who Loved Me in 1977,

where a white S1 would

transform into a submarine,

and For Your Eyes Only in

1981, where two Essex

Turbos in white and copper

starred alongside Roger

Moore. This normally

aspirated example has

covered a mileage of less

than 70,000 miles over its 35

years on the road,

substantiated by a run of

MOTs from 1984. Finished in

striking Calypso red with a

contrasting half black leather

and red alcantara interior and

sitting on BBS alloy wheels,

this Esprit looks very

purposeful and every inch the

sports car Colin Chapman

intended. This S3 has

benefited from many

thousands of pounds worth of

maintenance over the years

including a cylinder head

overhaul and engine bay

refurbishment in 2015 at a

cost of £5,236.99, amongst

other noteworthy works. This

well maintained example is

ownership the Austin was

campaigned in over 80

competitive events in both

circuit and hill climbs, with

both the VSCC and 750

Motor Club at various venues

including Goodwood, Mallory

Park, Donington Park,

Prescott, Silverstone and

Shelsley Walsh amongst

others. The car is well

constructed with an

aluminium body in the Ulster

style over tubular framework

with a 6 ft 3 inch chassis,

lowered axles and 17 inch

wheels. The engine is highly

modified with a high

compression cylinder head,

an Allen Billet crankshaft,

Renault 5 aluminium pistons

and crank, an aluminium

deep sump, big valves, a

lightened flywheel, a four

branch exhaust manifold, a

single modified carburettor

and overbored block (803cc)

and a remote spin off oil filter.

The electric system has been

uprated to 12V total loss

system, with a recently

replaced full wiring loom

(receipt on file) and a rebuilt

starter motor by Tim Miller.

Both the cooling and ignition

system are uprated for

competition use. The car is

offered for auction with two

close ratio three speed

gearboxes, for both

circuit/road use and hill

climbs, four cycle wings, a

spare wheel, headlights and

other spares. The history file

contains two VSCC eligibility

forms (No 1223/2788),

photographs of the build,

photographs of the car in

competition, hill climb and

40 A 1938 Morris 14/6 Series

III saloon, registration

number BEW 234, black.

Launched at the 1937

London Motor Show

alongside its 10, 12 and 25

stable mates, the 14 featured

an overhead valve engine,

four speed gearbox with

synchromesh on third and

fourth, painted (rather than

chrome) radiator cowl,

Easyclean wheels, and

sliding sunroof. This

incredibly original example

was discovered in barn find

condition in a West London

garage where it had been in

hibernation since the 1970s.

Being a Series III car it is one

of approximately 5,000

produced between 1938 and

early 1939, and it is believed

to be one of only six known

to the pre-1940 Morris

register. Since awakening the

Morris from its slumber in

2011 the vendor has traced

the history to its time as a

staff car with the Air Ministry

at RAF Warboys and

subsequent sale to the local

village store in February

1944. Having transported the

Morris back to his home in

Somerset, he embarked on a



recommissioning the car,

retaining as much originality

as possible. Works carried

out include replacing the two

6 volt batteries, new cross ply

tyres all round, reconditioning

the Jackall system,

overhauling the breaking

system, respraying the

bonnet and rear spare wheel

cover and servicing the car

as necessary. The

accompanying history file

contains two original

handbooks, Morris Garages

trade catalogue, Lucas

service information, an

original sales brochure and

Government War information

leaflet (dated 1939). This

extremely rare and original

Morris has attended local

classic car events in the

current ownership, where it

has been well admired and is

now offered for auction so

the vendor can concentrate

on other business interests.

41 A 1990 Porsche 911 (964)



registration number H957

NEY, Guards red. New for

1989 the 964 featured both

two and four wheel drive

versions and had an

estimated 85% new

components compared to its

911 predecessor. The engine

had increased to 3.6 litres,

the suspension was new with

coil springs and shock

absorbers to replace the

previous torsion bar

suspension, ABS braking

was added for the first time,

the bumpers and fog lamps

became flush with the body

and the ingenious electric

rear spoiler raised at speeds

over 50mph. This particular

example, finished in the

classic colour combination of

Guards red with a full black

leather interior, is a C16 UK

specified right hand drive

Tiptronic version, which was

first registered in 1990 in

Germany and found its way

to the UK in 1996. The

vendor describes the car as

eing in splendid shape, and

is equipped with power hood,

new soft top and tonneau

cover, 17 inch cup alloy

wheels, tear drop mirrors,

Porsche cup steering wheel,

and service history to verify

the 110,000 miles on the

odometer. The condition of

the Porsche can possibly be

put down to having formed

part of a small private

Porsche collection where it

has always been

mollycoddled. The car is now

offered for auction with the

original leather wallet with all

handbooks and service book,

comprehensive service file,

408/7041, engine number

949/23638C, car number

408-1-041, gearbox number

1909340, black over

champagne. This matching

numbers 408 is one of only

83 examples produced

between 1963 and 1965.

They all featured the 5.1 litre

V8 engine matched to the

Torque Flite automatic

gearbox and coil spring front

suspension in place of the

previous 407s transverse leaf

spring setup. This particular

fine example was in single

family ownership for 42 years

before being purchased by

Marksdanes Ltd, the

respected restoration

company in Somerset.

Originally supplied by

Anthony Crook Motors Ltd to

its first custodian, the

managing director of Norman

Isherwood & Company Ltd,

Bolton, before the second

owner a Mr Sidney Newman

from Clifton Bristol was in

possession of the car from

1965 to 1971 when he sold

the Bristol back to the

supplying dealer. Anthony

Crook subsequently sold the

408 to Mr David Oxford of

Southwell, Nottinghamshire

who retained the car until his

death, where upon ownership

passed to his daughter who

retained the Bristol until

selling the car to Marksdanes

Ltd, with over a remarkable

42 years in a single family

ownership. On acquiring the

vehicle a thorough

recommissioning and

refurbishment programme of

works was carried out. This

included a full high quality

respray in a stunning colour

combination of black over

champagne. The interior

benefited from new Wilton

carpets, new headlining and

reveneering of all wood

surfaces. The engine had a

cylinder head overhaul, the

carburettors were rebuilt and

the engine bay was detailed

with consumables as

necessary. Since completion

the engine has been tuned

by Sigma Engineering, which

the vendor says has done

wonders to the overall

running and performance.

Further noteworthy works

included a brake overhaul,

refurbished wheels and new

Avon Turbosteel tyres and

rechromed bumpers. All of

this hard work has created a

handsome gentleman's

express which is ready to be

enjoyed by the next lucky

owner, perhaps for another

they were initially available

with the 150 bhp rated

on 9th November 1962.

Originally finished in Shell

grey over Tudor grey with a

Alston Esq of Messars

would subsequently take

delivery on 15th November

until 1993. The second owner

become a long term owner

before being acquired by

Alistair Daker, a Bentley

classic car specialist in

December 2015 who would

supply the car to our vendor

in January 2016. It is

understood that during Mr

Smalls custodianship

extensive renovation work

was carried out by Meriden,

the classic Ferrari and

Maserati specialist in the

New Forest. Their rear

window sticker is still in place

today. It is likely that the

colour change to Seychelles

blue took place then. This

work included new front and

rear screen and door

rubbers. There is an early

invoice from around a similar

time from Messars Arnett of

Bournemouth, official Rolls-

Royce and Bentley

distributors, who carried out

£5,000 of mechanical

restorations works, mainly on

the brakes and a 6,000 mile

service at the same time.

This work was carried out at

a recorded mileage of 99,000

miles, just 12,000 miles ago.

Little used over the last 23

years, B50CN now comes to

the market as a thoroughly

useable, on the button

example and has seen recent

excursions to London and

back from South Devon and

the vendor states without

fault or missing a beat and

achieving 21 mpg on the

motorway. Good oil pressure

and water temperature

readings were maintained

during these journeys. As an

older restoration, B50CN

would benefit from minor

paint work refreshment here

and there but has good

chrome work, including a

recently rechromed front

bumper and a stunning

original interior. Now with

only 111,000 miles on the

odometer, B50CN is offered
