The Bentley motor car company was founded back in 1919 by brothers W.O. and H.M. Bentley. The Bentley brothers were involved in the motor industry having acquired the agency to sell French built DFP (Doriot, Flandrin & Parant) cars in 1912, however, they desperately wanted to build their own cars. So that they did and the first Bentley motor car, being just a chassis with a dummy engine, was shown at the 1919 London Motor Show and in late 1921 the first production Bentleys were built and delivered to their new owners. Bentley got the formula right and their cars proved to be luxurious, reliable and fast thus attracting buyers from the elite of society in period. The cars were also incredibly successful on the race track with Bentley achieving the ultimate success winning Le Mans in 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929 and 1930. The difficult economic times in the late 1920s had a major impact on Bentley and they stopped motor racing soon after winning Le Mans in 1930 and ultimately fell into receivership in 1931. Rolls-Royce acquired the assets of Bentley in late 1931. In this period Bentley produced some fabulous motor cars including the 3 Litre, 4½ Litre, Blower Bentley, 6½ Litre and 8 Litre models that are all today highly sought after by enthusiasts and collectors all over the world. The first new Bentley produced following Rolls Royces acquisition was the Bentley 3½ Litre which evolved into the Bentley 4¼ Litre. Bentleys of this era are also known as Derby Bentleys as they were built at Rolls Royces factory located in Derby in the north of England. Subsequent models included the Mark V, Mark VI and R-Type. Rolls-Royce introduced the Silver Cloud and the Bentley S-Type in 1955 and for the next eleven years these models were at the cornerstone of Rolls-Royce / Bentley production. The Silver Cloud / S-Type evolved through three major model iterations, being the Silver Cloud I / Bentley S1, Silver Cloud II / Bentley S2 and Silver Cloud III / Bentley S3 until superseded by the Silver Shadow / Bentley T-Series. The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III and Bentley S3 were introduced at the Paris Motors Show in October 1962. The most visible difference to their predecessors was the twin dual headlamps. The interior was also upgraded. The S3 received individual seats for the front passengers and leg room was increased for the passengers in the rear. The V8 engines had more power and there was a weight reduction of 100kg. The last iteration of the Silver Cloud and S-Type were very successful models for Rolls-Royce and they were sold to the rich and famous, including celebrates and movie starts. Many were chauffer driven. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1965 Bentley S3. The original build sheets on file confirm this car was ordered by L Broncklehurst Esq from Jersey in the Channel Islands. The build sheets note the car was delivered to Roll-Royce Ltd Lillie Hall for shipment to Jersey on 9th March 1965. The Bentley was delivered to Broncklehurst on 19th July 1965. The car is confirmed as having matching chassis and engine numbers and it was delivered with the following options: radio 920 T, RR electric windows and Dunlop black tubeless tyres UG 3916. The car was delivered in the colour scheme of Shell Grey (ICI.M.151-2582) over Black Pearl Vlaspar (173/10034) with Grey hide (VM3393). Mr. Broncklehurst only owned the car for a very short period. The build sheets show the cars ownership transferred to Royston Industries Limited in London on 1st January 1966. The last known owner in the UK was Barclay Limited in October 1972. The cars subsequent early history is not known. We do know from the import approval on file that the car was imported into Australia in 2012 and we understand the car was imported into Queensland. In 2014 it was purchased by the prior to current owner who lived in Western Australia. He was a panel beater and spray painter by trade and when he acquired the car, he removed the body from the car and refurbished the body and the chassis. He also tidied up the interior which included refurbishing all the wood work and replacing the headlining. The restoration of the body was done by Schonhut panel and paint in Osborne Park, WA. Unfortunately, the owner passed away before he was able to complete the restoration of his Bentley S3. The car was then given to Neil McLean Automotive, a well-respected Rolls Royce and Bentley and specialist in Midvale, WA and they assisted with the final stages of the restoration. The car then found its way to Melbourne and it was offered for sale by Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialist David Ekberg. This Bentley S3 was displayed on Ekbergs stand at Motorclassica 2019. The current owner, who is a long standing Bentley enthusiast and multi car owner, acquired this Bentley S3 at Motorclassica 2019. Since acquiring this car he has spent approximately $15,000 to take what was a very good car to the next level. Amongst other things he had some miscellaneous mechanical repairs done to ensure the car passed a roadworthy, it was serviced by McDermotts, the front, rear & boot carpet was replaced and sheep skin over carpets were fitted. Some of the missing tools, a jack, wheel brace and tyre pump were also sourced. Today this Bentley S3 presents exceptionally well. Whilst the car was repainted a few years ago, it has been done to a very high standard. Rolls-Royce Silver Clouds and Bentley S-Types are very colour sensitive and the colour combination of silver over blue on this car is simply stunning. It suits this car perfectly, giving it a very elegant and sophisticated appearance. The paint work presents in excellent condition with a strong depth of colour and high gloss finish. Defects are hard to find. All of the external trim, glass and the chrome work are in really good condition. Inside this Bentley S3 is all class. The grey leather on the seats and doors perfectly complements the exterior colour scheme and makes this interior of this Bentley S3 just a very nice place to be. All of the woodwork, including the dashboard in this car is in perfect condition. The same can be said for all the instruments and controls. It should be noted that the clock is from a Rolls-Royce, being badged as such. This car is fitted with aftermarket air-conditioning which works very well blowing cold air, making it a very useable classic all year round in Australia. Whether you are the driver or a passenger being chauffeured around, youll feel right at home and very comfortable in this Bentley S3. Open the bonnet, or have your chauffeur open the bonnet, and youll find a clean, tidy and well-preserved engine bay. Purists will note that the firewall is in the correct colour, but the underside of the bonnet has been painted in the body colour. The boot is similarly well presented. There is mostly complete toolkit, a jack, tyre pump, and spare wheel present and all are in good condition. Unfortunately, the torch is missing. We took the car out for a test drive and it performed well. The car starts easily from cold with the assistance of the automatic choke and quickly settles into a smooth idle. Once youre out on the open road this Bentley just glides along like a magic carpet. The gear changes are smooth and the engine just goes about its business without announcing its presence, as you would expect in a Bentley or a Rolls-Royce. The brakes pull the car up effectively and in a straight line. Despite it being a 57-year-old car it has no issues keeping up with modern day traffic. There are a few minor mechanical items to be addressed, which can be discussed with any prospective purchaser. Highlights: A UK delivered, factory right hand drive example, with matching chassis and engine numbers. Finished in the most stunning colour combination. A beautifully presented car. Flitted with aftermarket air conditioning. 1 of only 1,286 Bentley S3 saloons built. Price: $ 149,950

The Swallow Sidecar Company was founded in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley. In 1934 Lyons formed SS Cars Limited to effectively take over the operation from Walmsley. The SS brand was quite successful; though they had a reputation for having more show than go. The Jaguar name first appeared as a model name on an SS 2½ Litre Sports Saloon introduced in 1936. For political reasons, Lyons changed the name of his company to Jaguar Cars in 1945. Whilst the SS100 is indeed a fabulous car, it was the launch of the legendary Jaguar XK120 at the London Motor Show in 1948 that really put Jaguar on the map. The car caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The 120 in its name referred to its 120 mph top speed, which made the XK120 the worlds fastest production car in its day. It was available in two open versions, first as the roadster (designated OTS, for open two-seater), then also as a drophead coupe (DHC) from 1953. The car was also available as a closed or fixed head coupe (FHC) from 1951. The XK120 was succeeded by the XK140 which was launched in late 1954 and sold through until 1957. Whilst the XK140 looked similar to the XK120 there were in fact many subtle and indeed important differences. The XK140 featured a more spacious cabin and had improved brakes, suspension and steering. Visually the car had American style bumpers with overriders, a different grille (that had fewer, thicker vertical bars), a chrome strip on the bonnet & boot and an emblem Jaguar Winner Le Mans 1951-3 on the boot. The final iteration of the XK was the XK150 that was released in 1957. Whilst its family resemblance to its forbearers is obvious the XK150 was in fact a very different car. Most noticeable was the change to a one piece windscreen and the smoother wing line from the front to the rear of the car. Cabin space was significantly improved making the XK150 a far more comfortable car to drive. Mechanically the first XK150s were similar to the XK140s, however, an SE variant with a modified cylinder head giving more power and an S variant with triple SU carburettors giving even more power were soon available. In 1959 engine capacity was increased from 3.4 litres to 3.8 litres. Like the XK120 both the XK140 and XK150 were offered in three body styles being the roadster, drophead coupe and fixed head coupe. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a factory left hand drive 1951 Jaguar XK120 that was delivered new to the north American market. According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate on file this particular car was completed on the 8th June 1951 and despatched on the 20th June 1951 to Hornborg, Los Angeles in the USA. The car was originally finished in pastel blue with a duo-blue interior and a fawn soft top. The car is documented in the following books: The Jaguar XK120 in the Southern Hemisphere (2009) by John Elmgreen and Terry McGrath. The cars history stated below is an extract from that book: Chassis completed in June 1951 and despatched 20 June 1951 to Hornburg, Los Angeles, California, USA. Sold possibly to Dr E. Charland of Inglewood, California via Cavilar Motors of Los Angeles, California (however, this was not recorded by the factory). In December 1954 the car was sold by him to Edgar Zwieback of 175 Cordova Walk, Long Beach, California, and apparently owned by him at least into the 1970s. Nothing further known until the late 1980s when it was purchased in the USA by Peter Fox of Victoria, and imported into Australia. Said to be part of well-known businessman Lindsay Foxs collection. During the 1990s, the car was completely restored, including being repainted in its original Pastel Blue metallic. In March 2005 it went to auction with Bonhams and Goodmans at the Fox collection site in Docklands, Melbourne and was sold, apparently with just 19 miles recorded since the restoration. Still lhd at that time. Original colours: Pastel Blue, Duo Blue, Fawn. Regd: GGF710 (California, USA), KIF708 (California, USA). This car was one of several XKs purchased by Peter Fox and the second car restored by the Foxes. Terry McGrath. The current owner acquired this STUNNING Jaguar XK120 Roadster in December 2005 following its no sale at the Bonhams & Goodman Sydney auction in March 2005. This car is part of a major collection and it has been used sparingly since being purchased. Today the odometer reads 02715 miles. Its hard to believe that this car was restored in excess of twenty years ago. Granted it has hardly been driven, but everything is still very fresh. Today the car presents beautifully. When you look at this car, with spats fitted and presented in the most perfect colour scheme it is not hard to understand why the world went crazy for the Jaguar XK120 in 1948! The paint work on the car remains excellent all round with the only blemish some crazing where the soft top has rubbed against the body. All of the exterior trim, glass and chrome are also in excellent condition. The only exception being the exhaust tip which shows a few very light spots and there is the odd light scratch or mark on the chrome windscreen frame. Inside the cabin is quite simple, yet it oozes class. The leather remains subtle and clean and all of the instruments & controls (which are working order) are crisp and clear. The carpet has a few bare patches that have most likely been caused by moths. You may notice from the photothat the drivers door pull strap is missing. A replacement has been sourced and will be fitted prior to sale. The engine bay is clean & well presented and the boot looks to be unused. The soft top fits well and is in excellent condition. So whats it like to drive? Its fair to say it drives every bit as good as it looks. The engine starts easily and then it grumbles a little until the automatic choke turns off. It warms up quickly and then its all systems go. You are immediately surprised by the throttle response, which is almost instant. The performance of the car is really good. Everything is tight, just a like a freshly restored car! The gearbox is as smooth as a Moss box can be and the car steers and stops as it should. There is an unused spare wheel, jack and tool kit that will accompany the car. This Jaguar XK120 Roadster ticks all the boxes. The car retains its original matching numbers engine block which is unusual for many XKs. When restored it was finished in its original colour - which is just perfect for the car - and the finishing touch are the spats which complete the look. We have had the pleasure of handling a number of Jaguar XKs over the years and this one is without doubt the very best. Classic Jaguars are in high demand and these early XKs are just so very cool . . . and perhaps this example is the coolest cat of them all! Price: $179,950.
