For sale, on behalf of one of our customers, we have this absolutely gorgeous MG TA. First registered in 1937, the car has clearly been loved and enjoyed by its three previous owners – proven by its extensive history folder.

Our customer acquired the car from a relative who had initially bought the car in 2014 and, prior to his health declining, carried out a whole host of improvements to the car:

  • Engine rebuild with rings and head skimmed etc.
  • New hood fitted.
  • New windscreens. 
  • New clutch.
  • New fuel pump and carburettor.
  • New radiator and hoses.
  • New fuel tank made to order.

  • Rear axle seals with lip seals.

There is a comprehensive history file that comes with the car that amply demonstrates all that has been done to keep the car running as well as possible.

The car has been mechanically prepared to be driven and enjoyed and when you do get behind the wheel that is obvious because, for the age of the car, it’s great fun to drive and really puts a smile on your face – with spritely levels of performance to match.

Cosmetically, the car is best described as tidy with no major issues anywhere. It is a car to get out, drive and enjoy.

Please get in touch for any further information or to arrange a viewing.

Here we have for sale, on behalf of one of our customers, a truly beautiful VW Beetle 1302 S, ‘Bertie’. He was registered on 18th August 1971 and has only had four loving owners in its 53 years.

MGC GT

  • Recently completed full restoration
  • Wire wheels
  • New interior
  • Full engine rebuild
  • New loom
Full Description

Launched at the 1967 London Motor Show, the MGC was the British Motor Corporation’s replacement for the Austin Healey 3000. Based on the sporty % popular MGB, it was powered by a newly developed six-cylinder engine shared with the Austin 3 Litre.

This particular MGC came to us after being with another company for a few years. They had started the restoration process but were not moving the project along fast enough for the owner who had received the car in payment for an outstanding debt. He decided to get it restored so he could enjoy high days and holidays out in the car with his wife.

There was still a considerable amount of work left to do when we received the car. We set about getting it completed so that he would have chance to drive it before his failing health meant he was not able to get anymore enjoyment out of the car.

It was a pleasurable day when we were able to get him sat in the car and go for a quick blast up the industrial estate – the smile on his face was priceless for all concerned.

The car was completed and delivered back to the customers home in late 2022, unfortunately his health has deteriorated so badly that it has not been out of his garage and his family have taken the tough decision to sell the car and have asked us to market it for them.

There is a comprehensive pictorial history along with invoices for the work carried out by us.  As you can see, the car is absolutely top drawer in every aspect – the engine and gearbox perform well and it’s a nice lively car to enjoy the driving experience. From a cosmetic perspective, the paintwork and interior make for a really eye-catching classic British sports car ready for the next owner to get full enjoyment out the car in the years to come.

Rover P5B Coupe 

  • 3528 cc engine 
  • Date of reg 01-03 -1973 
  • Automatic gearbox 
  • Mileage – 67,847 
  • MOT until January 2025 
Full Description

The car when launched was badged as the “3.5 litre” and commonly known as the 3½ Litre. The final letter in the “P5B” model name came from Buick, the engine’s originator. Rover did not have the budget to develop a new engine; hence, they chose to develop the lightweight aluminium Buick engine, making it considerably stronger. While this added some weight, it still maintained the engine’s light and compact features. The Borg Warner Type-35 automatic transmission, hydro-steer variable ratio power steering and front lucas fog lights were now standard. 

The Rover P5 was the chosen mode of transport for the Royal family and Government ministers for a large period of its production run – testimony to the grace and elegance that this car possesses in spades. 

This particular car, that we are marketing for one of our customers, is a very nice example, the odometer is showing 67847 miles which cannot be guaranteed, but the oldest test certificate in the extensive history folder shows a recorded mileage of 64,169 back in 1998 so it is highly possible the mileage is correct.  

The car’s had some minor remedial work carried out to the chassis in our workshop and has been re-commissioned to ensure it is running really well in readiness for the coming spring and summer months. Out on the road, the car glides along with the level of refinement you would expect given the people who used to choose to run these gorgeous vehicles. 

The car is in good order and is ready for any prospective new owner to come and have a look – we are sure you won’t be disappointed.

Full Description

For sale on behalf of one of our customers, we have an iconic VW T2 bay window Camper Van Facelift version with high front indicators and tombstone rear lights. The odometer is showing a mileage of 34,145 miles and although this cannot be guaranteed, the DVLA – MOT history shows no discrepancies so would point to it being correct.

On the road, the camper drives and rides extremely well, gear change is smooth while the engine pulls effortlessly. There are a couple of areas of paintwork that will require some attention at some stage, but this camper is all ready for those memorable summer days out.

Triumph Herald 12/50 

  • Date of registration 19-06-1963
  • 1147 cc
  • Mileage – 61,628
  • Only 3 previous owners from new
  • Immense vehicle history
Full Description

This absolute survivor of a Triumph Herald was first registered on 19th June 1963, supplied by Myers and Burnell Limited of Davygate in York. The first owner paid £650 for the car which, as the original bill of sale shows, included extra underseal  at a cost of ten pounds 1 shilling and three pence!

The history file on this car is absolutely incredible, as well as the aforementioned original bill of sale the car also has the original buff log book and most of the tax discs, along with the original hand book and a collection of Jet garage maps.

The first owner kept the car until March, 1991 when it was sold. The car was purchased in 2023 with the recent owner spending time re-comissioning the car mechanically before we picked it up.

To be honest the car was not on our radar as one we went to look at, however as I walked bye something caught my eye as to how original the car was. Upon finding out the history of the car, I thought it was  a car that deserved to be given a chance to get back to being loved and enjoyed – as it clearly had been in it’s early years,

As you will see from the pictures, the body has some rust areas, all of these could be treated and left in oily rag style preservation. There is some fabrication work required on the chassis which we could carry out if the purchaser wanted us to complete some, or all, of the work. Obviously we could carry out a full restoration on the car, but clearly that would be an investment way beyond the potential market value of the car. It may be a project you’d like to embark on yourself and we could pick up any of the tricky bits. The car runs so sweetly and, with a bit of work underneath, the car would be good to go and enjoy!

Please have a look at the pictures and video on our YouTube channel, or come and have a look if you are interested. We want to find someone who will give this car the love is deserves!

Rover P6

  • 1978 cc engine 
  • Manual gearbox 
  • Date Of Registration – 6th April 1970 
  • 2 previous owners 
  • Mileage – 59,756 
  • Tax Exempt 
  • ULEZ compliant 
Full Description

Here we have for sale, on behalf of one of our customers, this absolutely immaculate Rover 2000 TC.

The car was originally supplied by Motor Work Chalfont Ltd and was registered on 6th April 1970, the car’s first owner was a D J Glanfield in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. In it’s 54 years, the car has only had two previous owners prior to our customer purchasing the vehicle.

The car was subject to some major work in 2021 which totaled £8600. This covered some work to the engine, with a rebore on the block and the head having some work, with the valve seats being re-cut. The car was fitted with a stainless steel exhaust system and some improvements were made to the electrical system. The work was clearly done to a very high standard as the car presents excellently in every aspect.

The mileage on the car is currently 59,756 which cannot be fully verified. However, there is an old MOT test certificate in the history file showing a mileage in November, 1990 of 56,964. Everything points to the mileage being correct.

On the road, the car drives impeccably and gives a very comfortable ride with smooth acceleration and very nice handling. It’s a real pleasure to drive with the ability to use the manual gearbox to get the most out of the car and enjoy the experience.  The extensive history file details all of the work carried out in 2021, along with the original handbook and service book in the folder. The registration number is worth in excess of £1000 if it were removed and our customer would ideally like it to remain with the car. If you are looking for a Classic Rover P6, you will be hard pushed to find a better, more useable example than this car.

2002 Aston Martin Vanquish

  • 460 BHP
  • Transmission:Semi automatic
  • Mileage: 43000
  • Exterior Colour: Tungsten Silver
  • UK Registered
Full Description

The Aston Martin Vanquish was the last of the ‘hand built’ Aston Martins at the Newport pagnell factory. Designed by Ian Callum, the car received additional kudos when chosen as the James Bond car in Die another day. The car was the first of the true British ‘super cars ‘ before the phrase became somewhat over used. The Vanquish fitted with the immense V12 engine utilised a lot of cutting edge technology which has been used and modified over subsequent years.

When you start the Aston up the Roar of that V12 as it is stirred into action is a truly wonderful sound. When you engage First gear utilising the clutch-less paddle shift and pull away you can immediately understand why this beautiful car has been called a continent eater. whilst it is undoubtedly a very comfortable cruiser it is certainly no slouch and will get you to 60MPH in five seconds and go all the way up to 190mph!

This Particular vanquish has covered 43000 miles, finished in the Desirable tungsten silver it is the 2+0 configuration so there is plenty of room for the luggage for those European road trips and weekends away. It has a comprehensive history file detailing the previous owners and has recently been serviced and inspected by a renowned Aston martin specialist. This fine piece of appreciating collectable British motoring heritage is absolutely fantastic to drive, but the problem is it is also absolutely gorgeous to just look at and admire so that’s a real quandary for you there.

  • Built to your specification

Full Description

This Absolutely remarkable Commer Q25 was first registered on 27th August 1946.

Obviously at that time new vehicle orders were controlled by the Government as the country recovered from the war There were only limited numbers produced. We have a copy of the ledger from the supplying Dealer which shows this vehicle was delivered to the Tymouth Laundry company when new.

I bought this vehicle after having a glass of wine, remarkbly it was just as fantastic when I went to collect it. The plan with this vehicle was always to restore it to be a promotional vehicle or used as a support vehicle at events like Goodwood revival etc. Alternatively As you will see from the pictures we have had a visualisation done to show the vehicle converted into a period catering vehicle.

Since collecting the vehicle we have got the 2.5 litre petrol engine fired up and it sounds absolutley brilliant, the Vehicle drives backwards and forwards so will be easily capable of restoration on its own drive train.

Rather than restore the vehicle and potentially limit out options or incur costs for making changes i thought we would advertise it with a view to preparing a price to restore and convert the vehicle to the customers specification and wishes. that way they join us on the journey and have as much fun as we will carrying out the work.
If you want it be a catering van or a period restoration please talk to us.

The car was previosly owned by a real austin A40 enthusiast and is a testament to the love and care he has bestowed on the car over his years of ownership.
