XBB 840H is an original UK supplied MGB Roadster first registered on the 6th March 1970. The MGB is equipped with overdrive, chrome wire wheels, mohair hood, twin electric cooling fans, stainless steel exhaust system and unleaded cylinder head and has been in regular use since a major restoration in 1992/1993. Photographs in the history file show the MGB in the early 1990's stripped down to the bare shell undergoing a comprehensive restoration. With engine, gearbox, axles, all brightwork, glass, ancillaries and interior removed, the shell was professionally rebuilt and fully re-painted. The MG was built up with new chrome work, the engine bay was re-fitted to a show standard, a new upholstery fitted and mechanically the car was completely rebuilt, and a brand new re-conditioned engine fitted. Having purchased the MG in 1992, the owner had commissioned the restoration and then enjoyed covering 21,000 miles up to selling the car in 2000. Since 2000, with just two owners, the car has covered a further13,000 miles. XBB 840H has proven an exceptional drivers' car for regular use and long distance touring, a comprehensive file of invoices show good quality maintenance and upkeep. The only major work since restoration was in 2016 when the engine was treated to new pistons, bearings, water pump, hoses and clutch kit. On the road we are pleased to report this MGB is outstanding. The rebuilt engine is strong, performs superbly and holds excellent oil pressure. The four speed gearbox is smooth, the overdrive functions correctly and the rear axle is quiet. The B handles, holds the road and brakes well and is a true delight keeping up with modern traffic effortlessly. The fact this car has covered 34,000 miles since restoration clearly demonstrates the enjoyment previous owners have had with the car. XBB 840H presents very well with lovely, clean bright Red paintwork, excellent chrome work, a smart, tidy interior and exceptional detailed engine bay. The restored bodyshell is perfectly straight withlovely panels, the inner arches are lovely and clean, the underside structurally excellent. This is a lovely, usable MGB that is ideal for regular use, long distance touring and is ideal for attending shows and classic car events. Price: 15,995

This lovely RHD Home Market Triumph TR3A was built on the 2nd February 1959, despatched on the 13th February 1959 and supplied new by Macharg, Rennie and Lindsay Limited in Glasgow. Our TR3A was supplied new in Silverstone Grey with Red vynide upholstery, Black hood, disc wheels and registered new WGB 546. The car today retains a great deal of originality and is a superb driving, beautifully aged honest example that looks a real time warp in good cosmetic order and is exceptionally strong mechanically. We can trace mileage back to 34702 in 1988 confirming to us the car has covered 20,000 miles in the past thirty years. There is an impressive, comprehensive history file detailing expenditure throughout the 1990's and in 2001 the TR3A was treated to a light body restoration that included new sills and wing sections. The car was then treated to a re-spray in its original colour of Silverstone Grey and a photo record of the work is with the car. It would appear this is the cars only real restoration asit retains so much originality and the original seats would suggest this has been a very well-kept car that has likely covered low mileage as suggested by the history file. From 2012 to 2016 WGB 546 was kept off the road unused and in late 2016 the car came to us in part exchange. We spent in the region of 6,000 on the car that included five new tyres, wishbone and inner arm bushes, new front brake discs and pads, steering rack conversion (original steering box still with the car), replaced the differential nose seal, new engine mountings, new thermostat, thermostat housing and gasket, new coolant hoses, re-conditioned radiator, new cooling fan, new distributor cap, HT leads, coil, rotor arm, all fluids replaced, fuel filter changed, a new dynamo and regulator box fitted and the flasher unit and indicator switch were also replaced. A new set of sidescreens, a brand new hood, door locks and new windscreen seals were also fitted. Since late 2016 the TR3A has been in Halifax with long term customersand is absolutely on the button and driving lovely. The engine sounds terrific with very good oil pressure, it runs and performs superbly. The four-speed gearbox changes up and down smoothly, the steering is far more advanced than standard and the car handles and brakes well. WGB 546 looks like an original car with its nicely aged yet bright 17-year-old paintwork, panels are lovely and straight, gaps are very good and the brightwork in fine fettle. The interior has an ultra-original, honest feel and is lovely throughout, the gauges all work and the weather equipment is excellent. This is a fine example, its very correct, largely original and drives superbly. The car presents well and it has the provenance of being a UK car retaining its original registration mark, original colours and many original features. Price: 29,995

265 RMV was first registered on the 21st May 1958 and was supplied new in Cornish Grey to Neil Tool Co Ltd, Tottenham, North London. The XK spent it's early life in London, Surrey and Essex but was off the road for around 30 years, discovered in a collapsed garage in 2002. From 2002 to 2005 the XK was subject of a 138,000 rebuild and transformation, creating a first class driving car that would perform, handle and offer the ultimate XK driving experience in comfort and style, more than capable of dealing with modern road conditions. A full body off restoration began and in order to achieve the very best results, a brand new powder coated chassis was purchased. All of the panel work was replaced and repaired where necessary and an early decision was made to remove the front wing side lights from the top of the wings as this was an area that encouraged corrosion. A spare wheel was carefully fitted and is accessible from outside under the boot floor. On completion the coachwork was refinished in theoriginal Jaguar colour of Cornish Grey. Mechanically, the original 3.4 litre engine was replaced with a rebuilt series three XJ6 4.2 unit and fuelled by throttle bodied fuel injection with PECO fuel injectors. Submersible fuel pumps deliver the fuel, whilst power is fed through a Jaguar five speed gearbox with S-type selector and 3:31 Power Lock differential at the rear. An engine management system controls fuel, ignition and cooling fans and Gaz coil over shock absorbers and springs have been fitted. Brakes are highly upgraded with a twin circuit hydraulic system with adjustable bias at the front and rear. Four pot callipers with vented and cross drilled discs are at the front and Series III XJ6 callipers at the rear. To accommodate the taller driver, a collapsible and adjustable steering column has been introduced and finished with a wood rimmed Mota-Lita steering wheel. New wire wheels and a set of 215/65/16 Pirelli P6000 tyres fitted. A bespoke wiring harness incorporates a twelve volt negativeearth system with electric rev counter and odometer that was zeroed at completion of the build. The front headlamps are modified original J type units now with halogen bulbs and side lights. An electric power steering system eases driving as does the two speed wiper motor system for clear vision in all conditions; air conditioning has also been added for comfort making the car ideal for some summer Continental touring, electric windows are another modification present. The interior has been trimmed using the finest quality materials. The seats are early XJS trimmed in red leather and incorporate headrests for safety. A digital radio and electric aerial provide the entertainment and two lockable compartments can be found behind the seats and the back panel folds down revealing the boot compartment. For additional convenience and security, the XK is secured by remote central locking and has the additional benefit of a Tracker. 265 RMV is absolutely outstanding to drive and offers a relaxed andcomfortable experience with the car staying in a straight line without having to make constant inputs to the steering. All gauges record correct temperatures and pressures and performance is something quite special. The engine is perfect, it sounds wonderful and under acceleration is quick offering impressive performance and is a car that keeps up with modern traffic. The five speed gearbox is a delight up and down the gears and the car handles perfectly. Since completion of the rebuild, 11,500 miles have been covered since completion of the rebuild proving this is a car ideal for regular or even everyday use. This impressive rebuild has been carried out by a well respected XK specialist and some exceptional engineering and workmanship has gone into this car. Include the purchase of an XK150 FHC needed restoration, a project like this today would cost in the region of 200,000. The fact that is has been completed over 12 years and has covered 11,500 miles should give real confidence that this is nowa well used, proven car that really offers an incredible driving experience. The XK attended Goodwood Revival last year and is without the doubt the very best driving XK we have ever experienced. If looking for a classic Jaguar with modern performance, comforts and modifications, this should be the car to buy. Price: 149,995

This is a truly wonderful find and most certainly a car for the discerning buyer who understands the rarity, value and qualities in finding a car so original and correct. Not only is this genuine 3.5 Litre DHC Jaguar MKIV the most original 1940's or 1950 'Jaguar we have seen, it has only covered a genuine 78,000 miles from new and has never required dismantling or fully restoring and is a true time warp in strong mechanical condition. LHU 616 was first registered on 31st August 1948 and left the factory in Suede Green. It was supplied new by Western Motors (Bristol) to Benjamin Escott Fish in the affluent suburb of Redland in Bristol. The first owner was very elderly and in June 1949 the Jaguar was sold to A.W Kelly in the Ashley Down area of Bristol. Nineteen years later in 1968 the Jaguar sold to J.A Venn just a mile or two away in the Bristol 9 area. In 1970 LHU 616 was registered to its fourth owner in the City of Bath and until 2015 the Jaguar had been owned by the same family, husband andthen wife. Three years ago we sold the Jaguar to the last owner who has covered around 1000 faultless miles in the car and we are now delighted to have this wonderful Jaguar back with us. This is such a special car in terms of its originality, low mileage and the long term family ownership further enhances the desirability of this rare DHC Jaguar. LHU 616 has a comprehensive history file that includes 30 MOT certificates dating back to 1968. The Jaguar has had brief spells off the road but was regularly used for short journeys with the mileage from the early MOT's at 74558 to today's mileage of over 78,000 proving this. We also have 30 tax discs dating back to 1953 and a Bath and West Chronicle newspaper article related to the car in 1989. Further paperwork tells us the Jaguar was entered in the Jaguar Driver's Club Concours d'elegance rally at Beaulieu in May 1992 and the vehicle took second place. The Jaguar Driver's Club correspondence from the early 1990's also confirm the car as original withspecial original equipment in place to include Ace wheel discs, mounted hand lamps and windtone horns. The last owner treated the Jaguar to a rebuilt set of wire wheels and new tyres, Ace wheel discs are still with the car. We have receipts for various maintenance and service items over the years but the most significant invoices dates back to the 1980's when the Jaguar engine was subject of a major rebuild. The engine was totally stripped down and block was treated to new liners and new pistons. The block face was surface ground and worn camshaft bearings replaced. The crankshaft was re-ground and main and big end bearings were replaced. The timing chain was also replaced and the cylinder head was rebuilt with new valves and guides. The oil pump was stripped and rebuilt and all new gaskets fitted. Further mechanical work at this point included a new clutch, radiator, water pump rebuild and new kingpins. We can report that today, LHU 616 drives superbly with a strong engine holding excellent oilpressure. The car cruises comfortably, handles and steers well and brakes are efficient. The four speed gearbox changes up and down smoothly and the Jaguar is a true delight to drive. Whilst covering very low mileages annually, the Jaguar has been used regularly over the past three years and comes to us on the button and driving superbly. LHU 616 has so much character, patina and honesty.The paint is old, faded and there are areas that have had local paintwork many, many years ago and we've have long considered painting the car and taking it to a top class finish. Considering there may not be another highly original example like this in the World, we've decided to leave the paintwork alone and leave this decision to the next custodian. We would enjoy being involved in any cosmetic improvements so we are happy to discuss painting the car for the next owner if desired. Importantly the body is excellent, strong and has straight panels and it is clear the car has had a sheltered life. It has never beenleft to deteriorate, get damp and has clearly spent most of its life in a dry garage. The underside is excellent, the car structurally strong and the bright work not perfect but on the whole, very good. The car has an older hood in very good order with no tears and the interior is just an absolute delight. The leather is totally original and wonderful with lovely aged creases and nicely faded colour. It looks how it should; it has the smell of original leather and is very impressive. Door cards are original, woodwork is lovely and original, the correct gauges are in excellent order, the tool kit is in place and the carpets are very good consdering their age. This really is a remarkable find and there are not many 1940's Jaguar's with this level of originality left. With only around 184 genuine RHD 3.5 DHC's ever made, LHU 616, number 79 offers a wonderful opportunity for the collector and enthusiast. Price: 99,995

We are delighted to offer this Home Market RHD Triumph TR5 PI onto the market. XLM 565G left the factory finished in Valencia Blue with Tan trim and Black hood, built on the 14th August 1968 and despatched on the 29th of the same month. The TR5 was supplied new with heater and overdrive, and was issued with the Greater London registration mark XLM 565G. Wimbledon based dealer L.F Dove Limited sold the car new on the 4th September 1968 to a Mr G Gurney of Surrey and we have the original service book containing the cars first two services, both by the supplying dealer at 1102 and 12421 miles. XLM 565G also still retains its original 'buff' logbook confirming the car spent three years with its first owner in Surrey. It would seem plausible the TR5 was taken back into stock by the supplying dealer as the second owner was local to L.F Dove Ltd on West Side Common in Wimbledon. In late 1972 its Wimbledon based owner moved to Newcastle Upon Tyne, taking the TR5 up to the North East where it has spent mostof its life. Throughout the 1970's, large Scotland and North East dealership Rossleigh maintained the TR5 and a comprehensive file of receipts and invoices are still with the car. In 2003 the TR5 PI was sold in need of major restoration having being off the road for many years. From 2003 to 2011, XLM 565G was completely rebuilt from the ground up to a truly exceptional standard. A photographic record confirms the TR5 was subject of a bare chassis rebuild and with the assistance of highly regarded specialists, the car was taken to show standard condition. The chassis was blasted and completely rebuilt, the bodyshell fully restored and the bare shell painted inside, outside and underneath, and the car then built up with perfect panel gaps. The TR was re-trimmed to a very high standard, all brightwork replaced or re-chromed, the boot area completed to show condition and the dashboard and dials completely re-furbished. The Triumph was fully rebuilt mechanically with no expense spared. The engine was ina very poor state and was deemed unrepairable. A replacement 2.5 PI engine was sourced and fully rebuilt with new pistons, oil pump, timing chain, tensioner chain, new rocker shaft, oil seals, new valves etc all supplied by TR Shop London. The block was re-bored, the crankshaft polished and on build up new manifolds, injectors and Bosch fuel pump fitted to the car. Steering, brakes and suspension were rebuilt, gearbox and rear axle overhauled, coolant system renewed and all electrics replaced and renewed. Like the rest of the car, the engine bay was taken to show condition and since completion in 2011 the TR5 has covered 3000 faultless miles. Eight years on since restoration, the TR5 still presents like a recently completed rebuild. There is no doubt this TR5 is in show condition, paintwork and bodywork are completely first class, panels are perfectly straight with excellent gaps and the underside is equally as impressive. The level of detail is superb with a beautiful engine bay, perfect sparewheel well and the interior has been trimmed to a superb high standard. The hood and cover are perfect, the correct style wheels are excellent and the car requires no cosmetic attention. On the road XLM 565G offers a brilliant driving experience. Its tight, holds the road perfectly and the engine is super fit holding excellent oil pressure and delivering impressive performance. The gearbox is super slick with perfect smooth changes, the overdrive comes in smoothly, the rear axle is lovely and quiet and the car feels absolutely right. This is a car with superb history dating back to new, has been kept as original and correct as possible, has been rebuilt to a first class standard and maintained and superbly kept since. With only 3000 miles since completion, this is effectively a fresh rebuild that has been nicely run in since and has to be one of the finest available in terms of condition and provenance.

This beautifully presented Bentley MKVI Standard Saloon was supplied new on the 24th October 1949 by Jack Barclay Ltd, Hanover Square, London W1 to Eric Low Beer Esq of the Grade II Listed 1439 Medieval Norton Priory in West Sussex. The Bentley was supplied new in Duo Grey with Light Blue leather upholstery and Dark Blue carpets. After three years, the Bentley sold to a G.L Saunders Esq of Knowle Park in Warwickshire and by 1960 the Bentley was back in London W1, owned by Clayton Cars (London) Ltd in Bruton Place. The Bentley was then owned by Chancers Pit Garage in Worcestershire right through to 1977 when the car was sold to a Mr Watson in Gloucester. From 1980 the Bentley was with one owner for 19 years in Cheltenham, 9 years with a second Cheltenham based owner before selling to the most recent owner in Derbyshire back in 2008. 886 PBP was subject of a bare metal, extensive restoration with its most recent Cheltenham based owner but sadly due to ill health the program of work was curtailed. TheBentley was sold in 2008 and the most recent owner commissioned the completion of the major restoration. Having had an exceptional re-paint, the car was treated to re-chromed brightwork (Derby Plating), careful attention was given to the original seat bases and new draught excluders, a new headlining, door cards, carpets and boot carpet were all fitted to ensure a high quality, luxurious finish to the inside of the car. Mechanical work included rebuilding the carburettors, brake servo, replacing gearbox mountings, leather spring gaiters, anti-roll bars, shock absorbers, spring shackles, rear axle mounts, steering column gaiter, fuel pump, ignition system and various new engine gaskets. Door locks were replaced, pedal rubbers replaced, the sunroof mechanism overhauled, new Michelin tyres and a new windscreen fitted, and the MKVI Bentley was also treated to a new clutch, new master cylinder, new exhaust sections and exhaust manifold nuts and gaskets and various switches, knobs and seals replaced.This Bentley MKVI has clearly had very little use since completion of its long-term restoration and it really does present in exceptional condition. The Standard Steel body is outstanding with excellent straight panels, the underneath has been superbly restored and having a first class, gleaming paint finish with the exceptional brightwork, the car is ready for shows and events. The interior has been beautifully restored whilst still retaining much of its original leather that tells us this has never been a 'basket case' or badly stored and deteriorated car. The leather work has a lovely patina and feel to it and with beautiful woodwork, carpets, working sunroof and headlining the Bentley does offer that luxurious, high quality finish that is expected of this wonderful marque. The boot compartment is superbly presented and the engine bay execptional benefitting from some serious attention to detail. 886 PBP does not disappoint on the road with a strong 4257cc engine holding very good oil pressureoffering impressive performance. The manual gearbox changes up and down smoothly with no signs of major wear, another clear indication this car has led a sheltered life. With its rebuilt suspension and braking system the Bentley is a true delight on the road and offers a very special driving experience. The MKVI was known for its refined, responsive drive and this example demonstrates why these cars were and are now still highly sought for their wonderful driving experience. This model was capable of 100mph and whilst we would not attempt anything near this, this very sharp, fit and healthy MKVI certainly feels like it wants to be driven and feels very comfortable underload with excellent power and acceleration delivery. The independent front suspension and leaf-sprung 'live' rear axle really contribute to making this such an incredibly superb car to drive and we are confident it will not disappoint. 886 PBP is a car to summer tour with, it would be ideal for long distance, for taking on theContinent with its impressive performance, high quality ride and with its working sunroof it will make summer rallies and tours even more pleasurable. The Bentley comes with thousands of pounds worth of invoices for the recent expenditure, RREC copy build sheets and continuation logbook copy, tool kit and retains its original chassis and engine confirming this is a matching numbers car.

The car comes with the most magnificent, detailed, comprehensive history and has arrived with us beautifully restored having had 31,000 spent since 2009. 164 XUT has led a fascinating life and comes with a packed history file of interesting stories and letters covering almost its entire life. The car was first owned by a farmer, Mr Havenger, in Rhodesia who owned the Packard for around 20 years. The Packard was to be eventually used as a tractor and by June 1968 it was found in an abandoned state and derelict in a Tobacco farm field. The car was discovered by Adrian Trebicki who negotiated to buy the car by trading a crate of beer. A memo notebook from 1968 is with the car detailing new parts and work being carried out to the car and it was this ownerwho kept the car for over 40 years, eventually shipping the car to UK as he career led him here in the 1980's. The new owner restored the Packard in Rhodesia during the late 1960's and put the car back in regular use, even touring South Africa at one stage. A comprehensive file of notes and invoices from the late 1960's and early 1970's is with the car. The long term second owner moved away from Rhodesia to work in Ghana during 1976, driving the car from Rhodesia to his parents in Pretoria, South Africa. The fascinating history file still retains letters from the Exchange Control Department at Standard Bank in Rhodesia to the owner's parents as the Packard had not been exported correctly back into South Africa, just driven over the border from Rhodesia and left at his parents' property. Eventually, after several months of correspondence the issue was dealt with. There are even letters from the owner Adrian to his parents from Ghana in the file, along with his International Driving Permit that isstamped as 'not valid' for Ghana. In 1981 Adrian Trebicki moved away from Ghana to work for Leyland Trucks in the UK and shipped the Packard over from his parents in Pretoria. Even this led to a story, with welding bottles on the ship falling and damaging the cars roof. A whole file of paperwork details the saga on its arrival in the UK. On the 19th March 1981 the car was MOT tested by Naylors Motor Sales (Leyland) Ltd in Leyland, Preston with a recorded mileage of 31871 and UK registered for the first time. The paperwork suggests this was the correct mileage from new. Insurance paperwork throughout the 1980's and 1990's is with the Packard but the car was unused throughout this period. In 2009, after 41 years, the Packard changed hands, selling to an architect in Wetherby, West Yorkshire. Having been unused since its arrival and MOT test in the UK, the Packard needed restoration and the new owner then spent 31,000 taking the car to a beautiful standard. Having covered around 200 miles since MOT in1981, the Packard was put back on the road and MOT tested at 32084 miles 28 years later in 2009. Whilst the Packard was re-commissioned and MOT tested in 2009, the actual major restoration lasted over three years. Invoices, photographs and a six page detailed report itemises all work carried out. The body required major restoration and a full re-paint, all brightwork was removed and sent for re-chroming, rubbers replaced, new tyres fitted, the upholstery was beautifully re-trimmed, all gauges and dials overhauled, and electrics renewed as required. The Packard was mechanically overhauled and since then has been beautifully maintained, carefully looked after and has covered less than 1000 miles since completion of the major restoration. 164 XUT has now arrived with us in beautiful condition with stunning paintwork, a lovely straight restored bodyshell and the attention to detail is evident with its beautifully presented interior and clean engine bay. The Packard arrives with us in strong mechanicalorder, its six cylinder engine is in excellent order, the column change gearbox a delight to use and the Packard handles and brakes well and is lovely to cruise in. This really must have one of the most comprehensive history files we have seen, the car has a real story and it's interesting to read how a family cherished and really loved this car for most of its life. Adding to the many files and several boxes of invoices, letters, correspondence, notes, notebooks, e-mail dialogues and technical notes is a beautiful original Packard Service Manual for both body and chassis, original parts catalogue, handbooks, data sheets, brochures and much more. This is a special car and it must be preserved, enjoyed and cherished. There probably isn't another one in the World like this. Price: 29,995
