![CDATA[During the First World War Rolls-Royce motor car production had been confined to military vehicles such as armoured cars, staff cars and ambulances. The company had devoted almost all its time in the production of aero engines and had earned as much of a reputation for building them as for building cars. The end of the war led to a considerable reduction in demand for the aero engines which meant that the Derby factory Rolls-Royce could start building the 40/50hp chassis (Silver Ghost) again. However, pre-war prosperity gave way to post-war austerity so it was obvious there would be a lack of demand for expensive luxury motor cars. To counter this reduction in sales Rolls-Royce thought there might be a demand for a smaller, less expensive chassis, as long as the quality and refinement did not suffer. The outcome was a new 20HP chassis which became known as Goshawk, following the aero engine practice of using names of birds of prey. The first Goshawk chassis was given the chassis number1-G-Iand started a long sequence of small horsepower, experimental chassis numbers finishing at 35-G-VIII. By the time the first Goshawk chassis was completed, sometime in 1920, it was already obsolete by a modified version which was on the drawing board, known as Goshawk II. 4-G-II is the oldest surviving, post-war, Rolls-Royce 20HP and the third Goshawk II chassis built. Fitted with an open tourer coachwork by Hooper & Co. (no. 5556), it was completed on 10th December 1921 and given the registration number CH 2892. This car was for the personal use of Henry Royce and in March 1922 it was driven by him and Mr Hives to Le Canadel, his house in France. At the end of May they brought the car back to England and West Wittering. Shortly after its return, problems developed in the cylinder head and the car was sent back to Mr Hives at the factory for extensive testing and modifications. After a period back at West Wittering, in February 1923 4-G-II was driven once again to Le Canadel for Mr. Royceswinterseason there. It was driven down by T. Maddocks who reported, amongst other things, that the spare wheel bolt had come out and was resting on the luggage grid. On 24th March 1923, Royce reported the ignition is now going well on 4-G-II and I am very pleased with the car which I am now driving myself. The roads are so rough that it takes time to sort out what is a bad road and a good car. A good performance was demonstrated when in April 1923 4-G-II climbed La Turbie in top gear with three occupants plus spare parts. On return to Derby the car underwent several further modifications including balloon tyres, a modified camshaft and a new exhaust system which increased the horsepower at 3000rpm from 47.1 to 51.4. Testing continued until May 1925 when the car went back to the factory to be made good for sale. It was fitted with a replacement engine number G 739 and the original body was replaced with a Sedanca Cabriolet body by T H Gill & Company of Paddington. 4-G-II was then sold as follows:1,October 1925 Sir F. Stanley Hewett, K.C.V.O. M.D. of St. James London SW1 2, February 1933 Captain S. Burt (Rolls-Royce Sales Dept.)

The engine has recently been checked through and made to run having been in private collections for the last eleven years. It remains in good original condition throughout and the owner says the engine is now running well. This unique, elegant Sedanca Cabriolet is coach painted in blue with black wings, withblackleather interior to the front and a fawn cloth interior with occasional seats which fold into the centre division to the rear. It also has a Brooks style trunk that fits to the rear luggage rack which has two fitted suitcases inside. 4-G-II has a large file containing copies of the original chassis cards from the RREC which confirms the car was for Henry Royces use, a buff log book which connects the chassis card ownership history to the supplied V5C registration document and history from 1962 which includes correspondence, invoices, old MoT test certificates and RREC club entries to various club rallies. The car is featured extensively in reference books, including The Rolls-Royce Twenty by John Fasal and Rolls-Royce and Bentley, The Experimental Cars by Ian Rimmer. This rare car represents an important part of Rolls-Royce history and development.]]

![CDATA[The MGB was launched in May 1962 to replace the MGA. Introduced as a four cylinder roadster, a coupé with 2+2 seating was added in 1965, with production continuing until October 1980. The MGB GT sported a ground-breaking design by Pininfarina with the launch of its sporty 'hatchback' style. By combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, the GT offered the utility of a hatchback whilst retaining the style and shape of a coupé. Acceleration of the GT was slightly slower than that of the Roadster due to its increased weight although top speed was improved by 5mph to 105mph due to better aerodynamics. This MGB GT has been rebuilt from the ground up by the vendor over a five year period, resulting in an MGB with exceptional performance. The specification is enormous and includes a new 4.0 litre V8 engine supplied by Turner Engineering including heavy duty iron flanged liners, a Real Steel high performance camshaft, Merlin big valve cylinder heads, John Earles crossover inletmanifold and carbon fibre air boxes. All of this is mounted to an LT five speed gearbox, with suspension and braking system suitably enhanced to ensure this unique MGB has the necessary handling and stopping power. Fuel injection has also been added, the mapping of which can be adjusted by the onboard tablet computer. Speedhut digital/analog instrumentation has been fitted including a GPS speedometer and lap timing. Finished in the Ferrari colour of Rosso Corsa with a new black leather interior, this MGB GT is supplied with a V5C registration document and a comprehensive history folder confirming the vendors expenditure to be far in excess of the estimate. This car is exceptional and is not for the faint hearted.]]

![CDATA[There has been a close association between the American Secret Service, the White House and Fords Lincoln Continental for many years. It has been the choice of luxury car by these two senior US departments and named after the perceived continental styling elements it adapted. It was certainly the most expensive car sold by a domestic manufacturer in the United States and a direct contender for the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. The 1966-1969 solid construction and rigorous post-build inspection of each vehicle reflected Ford corporate management's commitment to making the finest mass-produced domestic automobile of its time. Sourced from Houston, Texas in 2014 and now fully UK registered, it is in solid condition throughout with good paintwork. It clearly sits on non-standard 20 American Racing wheels, low profile tyres and a non-standard exhaust. The gold-coloured leather interior is in good order and the air conditioning unit has recently been rebuilt. The clutch was rebuilt to the tune of$800 in 2013 and it was last MoT tested in the UK in 2017/18. Included in the sale is a file of paperwork, mainly from the US detailing general servicing items as well as correct UK registration documents. Offered without reserve, this Kennedy Coupé is a rare treat.]]

![CDATA[The Cadillac DeVille was originally a trim level and later a separate model dating right back to the late 40s, meaning town car with the early models sporting a telephone in the glove compartment and a secretarial pad in the rear armrest. Advanced, even by todays standards. Made famous by its huge sharp tailfins with dual bullet tail lights, the 1960s Cadillacs had smoother, more restrained styling. In 1969, the DeVille was restyled with 1970 producing a face lifted front end and indeed the last year that pillared sedans were offered. 1974 saw the 210bhp, 8.2 litre, V8 introduced as the standard engine offering effortless, long distance cruising. Imported into Rotterdam from new, this is an EU car right from the start. It was then acquired in the UK in 2007 and proved very reliable using, as it does, the same transmission, as the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow. Supplied with a black Everflex top and factory-fitted electric sunroof, it is well specified to include an electric boot closing systemand a fully functioning eight-track stereo. Owned by a specialist US car collector in recent years, it was last MoT tested in October, 2018 and presents in good order throughout.]]

![CDATA[There is no doubt that the Ford Pick-up occupies a special place in the psyche of the American male. Introduced in 1948, the F100 launched a love affair with this handsome utility vehicle that has lasted right up until today. First sold in a number of different configurations, the Pick-up was always the best seller. The next generation, from 1953 to 1956, had better engines and increased dimensions. The cab was also improved with a wraparound windscreen, new dashboard and even seatbelts. Optional of course. The third generation was, again, modernised and redesigned. Front bumpers were now integrated and the new Styleside bed continued the smooth lines through to the rear. The current engine powering this striking example is a fully rebuilt 1972 Mustang, five litre unit by Huddart, now converted to run with an automatic gearbox and Lockyer C3 transmission. Retardation comes in the form of power brakes with a custom built stainless steel exhaust also running beneath the car. Offered withoutreserve, bidding should be hot for this cool cat.]]
