1929 MG 14/40 Two-Seater with Dickey MGs exploits in motor sport commenced when Cecil Kimber entered a specially tuned and modified Morris in the 1923 Lands End Trial and winning a gold medal. By 1926, modified Morris Oxford 14/28 chassis were being fitted with special MG bodies. These cars still featured the Bullnose radiators and were most attractive, creating much interest among motorists seeking a sporting motor car with a reasonable price tag. When the Morris radiator was replaced with the flat type, the MG was designated 14/40 as opposed to the earlier title of 14/28. The 14/40 was referred to as the MklV, although confusion sets in when it appeared that some MKlll 14/28s also featured the new flat radiator. Sales were to increase rapidly as the MG established itself and a move to larger premises in Edmund Road, Oxford saw MG become more independent of Morris culminating in the formation of the MG Car Company in 1928. The 14/40 holds the honour of being the first MG to win a race and also the first model to carry the famous MG octagon badge on its radiator. Between 1926 and 1929, 851 examples of the 14/40 were produced in two-seater, four seaters and saloonette styles. Supplied new to a Mrs Margaret Eames and first registered in Staffordshire on 14th April 1929, this MG 14/40 is the Two Seat Tourer version. By 1936, the car was residing in County Cork, Ireland, where it was to have a further three owners before being acquired by Mr Tom Byrne of Carnew, County Wicklow. In 1981 it was purchased by a gentleman in Dublin, before passing into the next owners hands five years ago. During its time in Cork it was used on a number early rallies, including the first Munster Vintage Car Rally in 1956. Today, the MG remains in very good, smart order and runs well. It is one of just five examples of the 14/40 Two Seaters known to survive. A rare opportunity, this delightful early MG is offered with much documentation including the original drivers handbook. Additional photographs will be added as soon as she has been prepared. For initial enquiries and to arrange an appointment to view, please call us on 01420-474919 or 07710-364945.

1936 MG VA Saloon - Significant History- Olympia Motor Show Car We sold this car earlier this year - but due to personal circumstances - we are now seeking a new custodian for this fine motor car. Introduced for 1937, the VA series - or One and a Half Litre as it was officially known, was to be the replacement for the NB Series Magnette. Powered by a twin carburettor version of the Wolseley 12/48 engine, the MG VA was available in Tourer, Saloon and Drop Head Coupe versions. Presented for sale here is an historically interesting MG - this car bears chassis number VA 0251 and was the first ever example of the VA Saloon produced. the car was exhibited at the 1936 Olympia Motor Show and was also used by the factory for many publicity photographs and by the press for road test reports. During this period the factory fitted the registration number ABL 999 and a photograph of the car bearing this registration is included. There are several features which are unique to this vehicle and did not appear on production models two notable features being the fitment of twin spare wheels and the inclusion of the special Octagon type Lucas side-lamps, which had appeared on the MMM series MGs previously. In recent times, the original engine has been rebuilt and bored out to 1.7 litres as with the police specification VA models which were supplied to various constabularies. The car was discovered by a former owner in 1980 and subsequently exported to Holland where it underwent a meticulous restoration over the next ten years. During the Winter of 2008/2009, the original 1936 engine was rebuilt and together with the correct gearbox were refitted to the car. This MG VA was to return to the UK in August 2008 and with the help of the MG Car Club, the original 1936 registration number was returned to the car. Today the car presents in very good order a testimony to the quality of the restoration. There are many delightful period features and the original toolkit, workshop manual and various spares are also supplied. The original leather upholstery remains in extremely good condition and the whole interior exudes a delightful Art Deco ambiance. The car comes with extensive history and period information along with photographic records of the rescue and subsequent restoration. Early viewing is recommended. (Please note these photos were taken as she arrived today - she will be prepared this week). For initial enquires please call us on 01420-474919 or 07710-364945 Viewing by prior appointment please.

1947 Alvis Duncan Coupe During the Second World War, the Alvis factory had been a major defence contractor, however, the entire works was to suffer serious damage during a bombing raid on the night of 14th November 1940, so it was not until November 1946 that they were able to recommence car production. Their first offering was the TA14, available as a saloon built for Alvis by Mulliners of Birmingham and also in Drophead Coupe versions, built by Carbodies and Tickford. A number of chassis also went to other coachbuilders for special bodywork. It is always a pleasure to offer a motor car that is truly special and extremely rare and here is a unique opportunity indeed. One of just 36 built, the Duncan bodied Alvis Coupe made its debut in the Summer of 1947. The brains behind this special car was Ian Duncan, an aeronautical engineer who had acquired a factory in Norfolk to produce his own very small car, the Duncan Drone, which was powered by a BSA 500cc motorcycle engine. Duncan also began to produce a few special bodies for The Healey Motor Company. The Reliance Garage of Norwich was an Alvis agent, and their sales manager, Stan Boshier, was so impressed by the prototype Healey Duncan, that he asked for a similar body to be fitted to an Alvis TA14 chassis. This body was a striking pillarless design with a large glass area and an elegant, streamlined tail with useful luggage capacity. The seasoned ash framework was made by a Norfolk firm of boat builders and comprised 62 sections of timber, screwed and glued together using Aerolite 300F, the resin used to bond the structure of the Mosquito aircraft. The completed frames were then despatched to Motor Panels of Coventry where they were clad in high-tensile aluminium alloy panels. With extensive soundproofing and high quality trim and furnishings, the brochure stated The combination of the Duncan body and the Alvis chassis provides standards of performance and silence only normally obtained in much larger cars. As the Duncan body was lighter than the production saloon, the 1.9 litre engine was able to provide lively performance, with a comfortable cruising gait of around 65 mph. However, such exclusivity came at a price - £2205, this being almost twice the cost of a standard TA14 saloon. This car, CVG119, was registered on 19th June 1947. The history file confirms that Alvis supplied the completed chassis to The Reliance Garage on 12th May that year. According to David Rogerson, the former Works Manager at Duncan Industries, this was in fact the launch car and was finished in mid 1947. There were originally two cars finished in Summer Cream and the famed racing driver, Kay Petre, who was also motoring correspondent of The Graphic, was to produce an article which stated in a rather tongue in cheek way, how Alvis, Daimler and Healey were combining to adopt a joint body style. David Rogerson stated that The phone never stopped ringing Given Kay Petres reputation as one of Britains top lady racing drivers before the war, she was given the Duncan Coupe to promote and on 6th September 1947, she was photographed with the car having entered it in the Concours dElegance at the RAC Jubilee Rally in Regents Park. Now one of six examples said to remain, this car has undergone meticulous restoration which has included an engine rebuild within the last 4/5 years, replacement of various timber sections and since the restoration the car has been used regularly, attending many shows and events. Two large and comprehensive files of information, invoices, etc are included and this fine and distinctive Alvis is ready for a new chapter in her distinguished life.

1929 Humber 16/50 saloon Introduced in 1929, the Humber 16/50 was the replacement for the venerable 14/40 model. The new 16/50 boasted a smooth running 6-cylinder engine with 7 bearing crankshaft, with the well-established inlet over exhaust engine layout that Humber had used since 1922. New features included coil ignition, mechanical fuel pump and Bendix brakes. Fixtures and fittings were of the high quality expected from this manufacturer and the 16/50 appealed to the discerning professional and middle-class motorist of the period. First registered in Surrey on the 11th May 1929, little is known of the cars earliest history, however, by 1942 it was residing in Amersham, Buckinghamshire as shown in the RF60 Buff Logbook. During 1963 the car passed into the hands of Capt R F Frankcom of Sherborne, Dorset and underwent a complete restoration. The car was to remain in this ownership until acquired by the current custodian in 1997. A substantial amount of documentation includes of an engine overhaul during 1991 and over the ensuing years there is clear evidence that considerable amount of care and expenditure has been lavished upon the car as is evidenced by its exceptional condition. This car is in exceptional order in every respect having formed part of a small private collection. This motor car will appeal to the most discerning enthusiast and must be seen to be appreciated. The car won an award at the Bristol Classic Car Show in 2017 and her silver cup and rosette are included.

1937 MG TA - Excellent restored example with MG Registration The replacement for the PB Series Midget came in the form of the all - new T Series model midway through 1936 This was an entirely new design with a 7 longer wheelbase and increased track, giving much improved comfort and considerably more room in the cockpit.

Acquired by the current family in 1991, the car underwent a chassis-up restoration during the 1990s and has been lovingly cared for since.

1936 Frazer Nash BMW 315 Cabriolet During 1934 AFN Limited commenced import and assembly of BMW cars and sold them in the UK branded as Frazer Nash BMW. They were to be the official BMW importer until the outbreak of war in 1939. The first Frazer Nash BMW was the 1.5 litre, 6 cylinder 315 available as a sports two seater or 4 seat cabriolet. This car underwent a complete restoration in 1978 for which there is a photographic evidence and a work schedule to show the work carried out. Little is known of the cars early history but copies of earlier registration documents are included in the documentation. The current owner purchased the car in 2012 and has used it on numerous BMW historic motor club events for which it is most suitable being a very capable touring car. The car has plenty of luggage space and competent wet weather gear with wind up door windows, glass rear windows and an excellent lined hood. The car has been used on many VSCC events and an old VSCC eligibility document goes with the car. Powered by a 1500cc six-cylinder engine with twin solex carburettors, this engine was a new old stock unit from Mark Garfitt and fitted in 2014 under the watchful eye of Oliver Penney, both guys veritable gurus on all things pre-war FN/BMW, and Steve Stanton tuned it on his rolling road. The brakes are hydraulic and are very efficient making the car safely usable in modern day traffic. All tyres are good with two new Waymaster 525/16 fitted to the front in 2017 that have covered less than 600 miles. A 12-volt electrical system with a VW dynamo and electronic regulation works in conjunction with many LED bulbs to reduce running load and make for easy starting, with no overcharging of the battery. LED running lights have been fitted and work with the ignition, LED brake lights in the centre of the rear bumper where the original tail lights were situated, and LED rear fog lights, all making for a much safer drive with very little electrical load. There are a couple of extra instruments, water temperature and Rev counter with a cigar lighter socket for Sat nav and the like. A rare motor car in the UK, it always creates much interest wherever it is seen. For initial enquiries and to arrange an appointment to view please call us on 01420-474919 or 07710-364945.

1930 Austin 20/6 Ranelagh Landaulette The Austin 20 was original introduced in April 1919 in four-cylinder form. A number of coachwork styles were available and when fitted with light sporting bodywork the Austin 20 was capable of giving a 3 litre Bentley a run for its money. The model was to achieve fame at Brooklands in the hands of both privateers and Works Drivers. By October 1926 a new Six-cylinder version of the Austin 20 was announced at the London Motor Show and the six-cylinder engine was to supersede the earlier model by 1929. The top of the range on the six-cylinder chassis was the Ranelagh Landaulette with a price tag of £675. A high-quality vehicle, many considered the large Austin to be the equal to the 20 hp Rolls Royce. A 1930 model, this Ranelagh Landaulette has been in the current ownership for the past 33 years, having been acquired in poor condition it underwent an extensive restoration over a number of years. The engine was rebored with all new white metal bearings and the chassis completely overhauled. The body was substantially rebuilt using as much as possible of the original panelling and new wings were fabricated also in aluminium (rather than steel). During the past 20 years the car has only covered a few thousand miles, having been used sparingly for rallies, events and weddings. Today the restoration has mellowed nicely and the car presents with considerable charm and patina, retaining so many of its original features including the chauffers internal telephone, rear blinds, occasional seats and light fittings. The original Austin radiator thermometer is also fitted. Also included is the original extensive tool kit and handbook and list of spare parts. There are notes and various copies of photographs of the car as acquired in 1980s showing the extent of the restoration undertaken. A rare and imposing Vintage Austin with considerable character and presence. For initial enquiries please call us on 01420-474919 or 07710-364945 Viewing strictly by prior appointment please

1933 Austin Ten Cabriolet Just arrived and awaiting preparation. Almost certainly the most versatile version of the highly successful Austin 10/4 range was the Cabriolet which was to appear in 1933 - a year after the 10/4's launch. This attractive model featured a threee position hood and offered more protection from the elements than the traditional tourer when the hood was folded fully down. The Cabriolet also boasted a lockable luggage boot, which was something of a rarity on small cars at that time. Of charming appearance finished in the Austin colours of Primrose over black, this Cabriolet was first registered on 31st October 1933. The subject of an extensive restoration some years ago, the car still presents very well and has an excellent well fitting hood. There is also a luggage carrier fitted. There are photos of the restoration in progress among the large file of information supplied. The car has been known to us for many years and has been enjoyed on a variety of rallies and events. One of the most practical small prewar cars, the 10/4 is extremely easy to maintain and benefits from the support of the enthusiastic Austin Ten Drivers' Club, which offers an excellent spare parts service.
