1933 Talbot 105 3 litre Brooklands special. Chassis number: DRF170048 Registration number: VSU 650 Mille Miglia Eligible. A beautifully crafted Talbot 105 Brooklands replica. This car boasts the largest 3 litre iteration of Talbots Pre war efforts. In 1931 four 105s were tuned to provide a reported 119 bhp, at 4,800 rpm. In "Brooklands trim" further tuning and an increased compression ratio of 10:1 gave rise to a claimed 125 bhp. This is thus a fast open tourer well suited to rallying. The car is finished in fresh black paint to the exterior & sports the racing number 3 to the sides. It is a confortable 4 seater when requred making it very versatile. The seats are finished in biscuit coloured leather to the front & rear with matching brown carpets. The dash is of walnut with a full quotient of period instrumentation to the centre. Given the lightness of the coachwork this is a fast car well able to run in modern traffic. The car is fitted with a Wilson pre select gear box well suited to competition work allowing one to select the required gear for an upcoming corner well in advance of actually arriving at said corner. The car comes with a tonneu cover for the rear seats which may also be used as a luggage area. Twin aero screens are fitted to the scuttle & a spare wheel to the drivers side. The front wings turn in unision with the front wheels. The car is in fine order & is supplied freshly serviced & ready for immediate use. Talbot's reputation for producing highly effective competition cars owed a lot to the efforts of the Tolworth-based motor dealership and racing preparation specialist, Fox & Nicholl who had looked after the works team since 1930. In that year the Talbot 90s dominated the 3-Litre class in prestigious international events such as the Le Mans 24-Hour race, despite displacing only 2.3 litres. This run of success continued when the full 3-litre Talbot 105 became available. Famously registered 'GO 51' to 'GO 54' consecutively, the first four Fox & Nicholl Talbot 105s enjoyed an outstanding run of successes during the 1931 season, highlights of which included 1st, 2nd and 3rd in class at the Brooklands 'Double Twelve' and 3rd overall at Le Mans (1st un-supercharged car). The successes continued in 1932 with 1st, 2nd and 3rd in class at the Brooklands 1000 mile race, 3rd overall again at LeMans and 1st and 2nd overall in the Brooklands 500. In addition a solo attempt at the Mille Miglia was one of the great "might have beens" with GO53 finishing 25th after crashing at 900 miles when lying 4th overall. Englishman Brian Lewis was able to finish the race in 25th driving a Talbot 105 even after driving miles off course when he took a wrong turn. Later the Englishman was able to relate a fantastic story on his Italian adventure. It seems that with one headlight out of action he was unable to see, in time a sharp curve in the road while traveling in access of 90 mph. The car became airborne and landed in a ditch. Miraculously the crew and car survived with a broken water pump and a minor hole to their fuel tank that was patched with some chewing gum. The loud crash got the attention of the local populace who assumed the grim task of retrieving the bodies only to be cajoled by the lucky crew to grab a rope and haul the car back on the road. Amidst shouts of English mixed in with Italian they were able to accomplish this feat and the car was soon to rejoin the race to the cheers of the crowd! The models eligible to take part in the 1000 Miglia are those of which at least one specimen took part or completed the registration formalities in one edition of the historic 1000 Miglia that was held from 1927 to 1957. The coefficients are allocated after careful consideration of the year of design and the technical, sporting and historical features of each individual model.

1933 Rolls Royce 20/25 Thrupp & Maberly Sedanca. Chassis number: GLZ47 Registration number: ALL700 Just having emerged from a stem to stern restoration to the highest standards; this car was awarded 99 out of possible 100 points by Rolls Royce Enthusiast Club Judges at the Rockingham concours. The one point being deducted for the two tone paint continuing inside the door shuts where the judges felt it out to be all black. This car is as close to how they left the factory as any we have had. The restoration was a meticulous affair taking several years. with the body being entirely removed from the Chassis whilst it was being rebuilt. There is a photographic record of the various steps taken & the build up of the car. Efforts were made to do it detail perfect with correct cotton covered cables being sourced in the appropriate colours & installed with Ross Courtney crown wire ends. Coachwork is a particularly elegant effort by Messers Thrupp & Maberly. taking the form of a sedanca de-ville with division. A swage line loops up over the boot round the rear quarters & then along the roof line to the sedanca front. A smokers hatch in the roof affords light to the cabin giving is a spacious feel & affording fresh air to the rear occupants. The spare wheel is rear mounted & sits within its own case. The interior is finished in Burgundy leather all in as new condition. The interior woodwork has been beautifully refinished with just the right dull sheen to match the original finish. High-quality Wilton carpets are fitted throughout. To the boot lid is a full tool kit. missing one spanner during our visit as it was in the owners house! The exterior paint is maroon & black with over £30K being spent on it alone. I am not going to waffle on any further about the condition of this car as perfection needs few words. Simply put you have to see it to believe it. It won its class at The Rolls Royce National & was runner up in the masters. High Praise indeed. ..
