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 Aston presents superbly with excellent paintwork, a superb straight bodyshell, lovely original low mileage upholstery and the power hood works perfectly well. The car is fabulous to drive with the six cylinder 3.2 engine and automatic gearbox performing faultlessly, brakes are sharp and pull up square, the steering smooth and direct andthe suspension feels excellent with no knocks or rattles. Having recently had 2,000 spent on mechanical preparation and a service, the DB7 is ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next owner. Price: 37,995

We are delighted to own this fabulous Lancia Aprilia, a genuine UK London RHD supplied car that comes with an exceptional history. These very sought after cars are famous for being a Mille Miglia, Monte Carlo Rally, Spa 24 hours, Leige-Rome-Liege and Targa Abruzzo class winner. They were based around a lightweight, four door pillarless monocoque equipped with all round independent suspension, four wheel hydraulic brakes and powered by a narrow angle 1352cc V4 engine with four speed manual transmission. They were particularly advanced for this era and generation; handling was very impressive and with a top speed of 80mph this really was an exciting car of its day. Our London registered car still retains its original registration mark FLE 851 and comes with an impressive, comprehensive history file dating back to the 1960's. The cars continuation brown 'buff' logbook tells us the Lancia was in Woking in 1961, Hemel Hempstead in 1965, Earls Court Square, London in 1968 and by 1969 it was purchased bya Hampshire based owner who kept the car for almost 25 years. Correspondence in the history tells us the car required restoration work on initial purchase to include an engine rebuild, interior re-trim, re wire and bodywork. After 24 years of regular use, it was in need of work again when selling the car in the early 1990's. A photo record from 1993 shows the Aprilia in need of restoration and over three years the car was taken to a beautiful standard and was then ready for shows, events and long distance touring. Photos show the Lancia throughout the 1990's at various places to include the Bristol Lancia AGM on its first outing since completion in 1996 and touring France and Italy later in the year, photos of the car on the Monte Cenis pass and in Longotto,Turin. In 1997 the Lancia completed the Sliding Pillar rally, in May 1997 it featured at the Lancia Club rally in France and in September 1997 the car was present at Castle Combe and Hollyhouse Farm. In April 1998 the car was back in France onthe Celtic Rally Brittany and from previous MOT certificates we can see the Lancia covered approaching 5000 miles from rebuild completion in 1996 to the early 2000's. Between 2008 and 2010 in the region of 20,000 was spent on FLE 851 to include almost 15,000 with Omicron Classico, much of their work was carried out on the engine. The Lancia was also treated to a professional re-spray. The engine rebuild included the entire bottom end being re-white metalled, a new set of liners were machined, pistons were re-machined, the crankshaft was re-installed and the end float set and the engine completely rebuilt. The cylinder head overhauled and re-installed and a new clutch also fitted. Since this work the Lancia has covered just 1000 miles. The Aprilia has arrived with us in delightful condition, driving very well with a lovely strong engine holding very good oil pressure, delightful gearbox and as reported in its early days, it's a very advanced 1940's car that is truly fabulous to drive. Nine yearsafter its rep-paint the finish has nicely aged, it has a lovely deep finish, the bodywork has lovely straight panels, chrome work is bright and the interior is delightful. This is a very exciting car, it's a rare genuine RHD car with superb provenance and its condition is just perfect for what it did so well during the 1990's, for driving, long distance touring and shows/events.

We are delighted to offer this stunning, genuine Fiat Abarth onto the market. This car was built in April 1966 and letters from Fiat Turin and the Automobile Club D'Italia confirm the build date and chassis number of this car. On completion of build the Fiat went to Abarth in Turin and in 1967 was registered and sold new in Italy. Carlo Abarth' tuning provided more power, a top speed of around 80mph and ultimately these highly tuned cars were successfully raced against much more powerful rivals. Our genuine example still retains its original chassis plate and stamped numbers on the inner shell arch. We have records to confirm the Fiat bodyshell was rebuilt in Italy in 1997/1998 and in July 1999 the car was imported into the UK. The Abarth was brought into the UK by Chelsea based Fiat specialists and sold to its first UK owner in September 1999. Invoices for thousands of pounds worth of work with specialists Lanzante Ltd are with the history dating between 2000 and 2002. In 2003 the Abarth sold toits second owner in the UK who kept the car for eleven years. Notable expenditure during the early part of his ownership was for a brand new, fully rebuilt engine uprated to 695cc with Middle Barton Garage in Oxfordshire. Invoices are present confirming new con rod bearings, forged pistons, new cam, camshaft followers, re-faced cylinder head, refaced valves, valve guides, recut valve seats, refaced barrels, various machining, alloy oil pan and uprated clutch assembly. Mid Barton Garage also supplied new front and rear shock absorbers, new twin pipe exhaust, king pin repair kit, carb rebuild kit and various ignition items and external trims to include new sunroof and frame. The Fiat has come to us absolutely on the button and in beautifully detailed condition. The Abarth looks fabulous with original 12 inch alloys below the Group 2 wheel arches, the interior is first class with gorgeous bucket seats, Jaeger dials, Mid Barton supplied steering wheel and the various Abarth badging. Paintwork is topclass, the bodywork excellent with superb panel gaps and on the road OGC 247D is super-fast with its strong, fit rebuilt 595 engine. The gearbox is excellent, handling and braking first class, the car sounds terrific and is ready for its next owner to have some serious fun. This is a wonderful piece of kit, a beautifully presented and detailed car that is absolutely on the button, properly prepared and set up to offer impressive performance. Price: 34,995

The 12/50 is a significant model in Alvis history for many reasons. It was the car that really marked the arrival of Alvis as a serious and successful car maker and set the standard for the remainder of the company's car production. Alvis took the basic side valve design and converted it to pushrod overhead valves in 1923 and all subsequent production Alvis cars had overhead valves. It was immediately apparent that this was a quite exceptional 1500cc sports car and, with minor changes, it was reborn as the immortal 12/50; the very quintessence of the vintage sports car. The 12/50 was produced over a long period but discontinued in 1929 when the firm pinned its faith on the front-wheel drive models. When these failed to win wide acceptance, the 12/50 was hastily re-introduced and is believed to have saved the firm. The Alvis 12/50 is notably regarded as one of the definitive vintage cars with a perfect balance of power, road holding and braking. The model is well reported of having real durabilityand reliability, contributing factors being the ultra strong chassis and impressive mechanical design. The 12/50 model was in production for ten years and we believe 3616 were built with less than 500 survivors known by the Alvis Club. VE 5158 was first registered on the 13th May 1931 and from an original brown 'buff' logbook we can confirm this well travelled four seat tourer spent the 1950's and early 1960's in Hertfordshire, from 1963 to 1970 in Edinburgh, 1970-1972 in Lincoln, 1972 - 1974 in Newcastle, late 1970's in the North West then Derbyshire and from 1984 the Alvis spent 26 years in Berkshire before selling to the most recent owner in Bromsgrove in 2010. The Alvis comes with an exceptional history file with restoration invoices dating back to the 1970's and MOT certificates dating back to 1983 indicate the Alvis has covered 9000 miles in the past 35 years and has been kept roadworthy and on the road throughout this period. Fascinating letters, correspondence and restoration paperwork gointo great detail and in a letter dated 22nd January 1974 we learn the Alvis was owned by the secretary of the VSCC in Scotland during the 1960's. We also learn the Alvis was used for some hillclimb events in the 1960's before becoming an every day car for one of its Scottish owners in the late 1960's. It was often driven from Edinburgh to Ayr over the Lanarkshire Moors and used for touring holidays. The owner then moved to Lincoln and in 1972 and the Alvis the owner treated the car to some major work to include an engine rebuild to include re-metalling all main and big end bearings, the clutch was re-lined and the dynamo was overhauled. Invoices and related paperwork tell us the Alvis was subject of more restoration work during the late 1980's and its long term owner continued to spend money on the car right throughout his ownership of almost 30 years. Major work during the 1990's included stripping and repairing the gearbox, major work to the exhaust manifold, re-conditioning of the clutch,replacing water pipes, engine and gearbox mountings, carrying out rocker shaft modifications, new exhaust sections, overhauling brakes, replacing springs and spring bushes, replacing the rear cross shaft, stripping and rebuilding the steering box, renewing floor boards, new side-screens and hood, re-trimming the interior, restoring the headlamps, carrying out paintwork and carrying out various re-wiring work. Over the past eight years the most recent owner has also maintained the Alvis very well, and invoices detail work to include new distributor, drive gears, replacing carburettor components, new cylinder head gasket and inlet and exhaust gaskets and regular servicing. VE 5158 has had two owners in 35 years, has covered 9000 miles in this time and has been thoroughly enjoyed and proven a true pleasure to own. This Alvis 12/50 TJ Tourer presents very well with its beautiful four seat tourer body. The metal work is in excellent order and the 1990's bright paint finish has a lovely aged finish butdoes have evidence of micro-blistering. The car has the look of a very genuine, honest and correct, nicely aged car but paintwork improvements can be discussed if necessary. Brightwork is still of a good standard, the interior is beautifully presented with a lovely patina and the full weather gear is in excellent order. The strong robust chassis is in excellent order and on the road the Alvis performs very well and is very happy at 45-50MPH. The gearbox bearings are particularly quiet, the four cylinder engine performs superbly and sounds delightful and the 12/50 handles and brakes well. VE 5158 is a very charming, well sorted older restoration that has a lovely history and is useable, presentable and incredibly desirable in its correct four seat tourer format. Price: 33,995

We are delighted to offer this exceptionally rare Humber Pullman Laundaulette onto the market. There are only a handful of this type still in existence. The car was despatched from the factory on the 19th October 1931 to Rossleigh, Edinburgh. Documentation in the history from a Humber motoring Historian states the car is actually a 1932 model and is believed to have left the factory in its current colours of Royal Blue over Black. The Humber spent most of its life in Scotland, spending 50 years with the same family. The Humber also comes with its original Hackney Carriage 8 seats plaque as it was used to transport holiday guests from Granton Station to Aviemore Resort in Scotland. Having spent its entire life in Scotland, the most recent owner in Enfield bought the Humber in 1999 and has covered 6500 miles in the car over the past 18 years and the Humber arrives with us in impressive mechanical order, beautifully presented body and a totally original, unrestored interior. Whilst the Humber retainsa great deal of originality, it was subject of some restoration work in 1992. Over 10,000 was spent on removing all exterior fittings and interior trim and seats, stripping the complete vehicle down to bare metal and carrying our repairs as necessary to the metal work. All dents were removed and then the Humber was completely re-painted in its original colour scheme. New glass was fitted to all four doors, any corroded woodwork was replaced and a new exhaust system was also fitted. The Humber was then built back up, presenting in first class condition. In 2000, six months after changing hands and moving to Enfield, a programme of mechanical re-commissioning work was carried out. Brake shoes were sent for re-lining, king pins were stripped down, carefully repaired with some new machining and new thrust bearings. New bushes were made and fitted to the damper link arms, springs were removed and stripped down, then sandblasted, re-assembled and greased up with new bushes fitted, the fuel tank wasflushed out, cleaned and re-painted, the sender unit freed off and tested, a new cross shaft was machined with new pins, nuts, spacers and washers and the engine was treated to an oil change and filter, HT leads and condenser replaced. Plugs were cleaned, inlet and exhaust tappets set and timing also set. The carburettor was stripped and new jets fitted, the starter motor rebuilt and the Humber was then MOT test and ready for use. A notebook accompanies the car details all 6500 miles with the last owner, and it also documents various jobs such as replacing tyres and battery when necessary. The only significant expenditure since the re-commissioning work in 2000 was over 4500 of work in 2011/2012. This work included a further brake overhaul and various mechanical and electrical work. With steady use since then, the Humber has arrived with us in lovely order and does drive very well. Its 3.5 six cylinder engine runs beautifully and offers impressive performance. The gearbox feels strong, changesnicely and the Humber rides, steers and brakes well. Confidence can be taken from the previous owners regular use and the car has a strong, robust feel and is most certainly very usable. The Humber starts reliably, drives beautifully and its powerful engine means it can be driven comfortably for longer distance touring. SN 5437 is a large, impressive motor car and with sharp, deep paintwork and bright chrome it does present incredibly well. It's a beautiful looking car and whilst some may prefer a brand new looking interior, our car has a wonderful patina and charm with its original seating still in remarkably good order. The carpeted section of the lower door cards are quite worn but it does represent 80 years of history and cosmetic work to the trim can be carried out if necessary. The glass chauffeur patrician is still in place functioning correctly and whilst many, many years ago the Laundaulette style hood was covered over externally at the rear of the car, the original interior headlining andhandles etc are all still in place so we are happy to explore the option of re-instating this so rear passengers can have open top motoring. Humber's original sales brochure stated the car combines simple dignity of appearance with interior roominess and charm. The folding head is particularly neatly constructed, the hinged supports being concealed in the roof itself. This is a wonderful, rare piece of motoring history and it offers a very unique opportunity. Please enquire for the further details. Price: 34,995

This exceptional original right hand drive MGA Coupe was built between the 2nd and 8th April 1957 and exported new to Switzerland where it has been for the majority of the past 61 years. The MGA was supplied new with wire wheels and kilometres speedo. The MGA has been registered in Switzerland since new and has been meticulously maintained and pampered throughout its life and was also subject of a 1990's restoration. Swiss traffic regulations are extremely strict on car quality, maintenance and overall condition and a stringent Matriculation roadworthy process and check must be carried out to keep the car on the road. This car also has a valued Swiss veteran status meaning it has been subject to a more detailed examination. The MGA has spent most of its life in the sunny region of the southern Swiss Alpes and we are told the car has had just three owners in its lifetime. The last owner, one of our regular customers based in both Switzerland and the Netherlands bought the MGA in 2014. He and hiswife bought the car as a wedding present and it spent most of its time at their Schwyz property and it has been used sparingly in both Switzerland and Holland. They found the car in Ticino whilst enjoying a drive around the Lago Maggiore, the MGA was in the display at the Classic Bugatti Garage Belotti in Locarno in Southern Switzerland. The Bugatti Garage had the MGA displayed with other numerous classics and were convinced of its premium quality and overall excellent condition having known the car very well. The quality of this MGA is first class with exceptional paintwork and bodywork. We know from the history file the car had substantial work during the 1990's and it still retains a beautiful, deep paint finish with superb panels and gaps. The engine bay is superbly presented yet still very usable and the underside is absolutely first class. On arrival the MGA was submitted to our workshops for a check over and we can confirm the car is in excellent mechanical order. The engine is superb withexcellent oil pressure, the four speed gearbox is strong with excellent syncromesh and the brakes, steering and suspension system are all working perfectly. The interior has recently been treated to re-trimmed leather seats and new door cards giving the car an all-round first class finish. The MGA will be UK registered for its next owner if staying in the UK. Price: 34,995

This low mileage, largely original Lotus Esprit Turbo is a very significant car. C957 XSC is the 1985 Motor Show Car, fitted with a dated commemorative plaque and coming with history from new. The Lotus was supplied new by Victor Wilson Limited in Edinburgh on the 1st January 1986 to a Mr H Herbert in Fife. Supplied new in White with Blue leather upholstery, the Esprit was taken to the supplying Edinburgh dealership on the 19th February 1986 for its 500 to 1000 mile free service. The original maintenance/service book confirms the Esprit was maintained in its early life by Lotus Distributors Murray Motor Company with services recorded at 4980, 8710, 12873 and 18104 in 1991. On the 31st August 1991 the Lotus changed hands for the first time, moving south to Berkshire and services are recorded at 21767, 37454, 42095 and 47672 in 1999. The Lotus spent the early 2000's in the South of England and over the next ten years the car covered a further 16500 miles. MOT certificates from 2010 record the mileageat 64345, 66147 in 2011 and the car was then off the road until being re-tested in 2016 at 66888 miles confirming very little mileage has been covered in recent years. Within the past 3000 miles considerable expenditure has gone into the car, receipts confirming a new clutch kit, new ignition items, new front brake pads and discs and a re-conditioned radiator are with the car. Further documentation also confirms re-conditioned brake calipers have been fitted, the cylinder head gasket has been replaced along with all belts and a new exhaust manifold and waste gate adapter fitted. More recently, in 2017 the turbo was reconditioned by Turbo Solutions, the carburettors were stripped and ultrasonically cleaned and rebuilt with genuine Dellorto parts and the wheels fully re-furbished. This is clearly a very special car and it should appeal to both collectors and enthusiasts. Mileage and early history is very important, the Motor Show provenance and the fact the car has recently featured on the frontcover of a recently published book on the Lotus Esprit also makes this car more interesting and the condition doesn't disappoint either. This Esprit appears remarkably original, the interior trim is delightful, honest and is in lovely condition throughout. The Connelly Blue hide leather is fabulous, high quality carpets look impressive and the interior clearly demonstrates what a low mileage, well cared for example this is. External presentation is very good, the paintwork has nicely aged and is a of a high standard and certainly meets expectations considering its never required restoration. Its quite clear fastidious owners have cherished this car and we know from the paperwork its been part of a large collection for some years and on two occasions featured in the Beaujolias run to France and back. Boasting a stainless steel exhaust system, air-conditioning, rebuilt turbo and its full lift out glass roof, this is a perfectly usable modern classic offering fabulous 80's looks, superb performanceand it will be supplied to its next owner fully serviced, ready to go with a full 12 months MOT.

This stunning MGA MKI 1500 FHC was manufactured by the MG Car Company in the UK, at Abingdon, Berkshire in 1957 and was exported to the U.S.A. On arrival back in the UK in 1992 the MGA was stripped down and the body removed from the chassis. The car was then subject of a show standard chassis up nut and bolt rebuild to the highest of standards. The chassis was taken back bare metal, cleaned, prepared and painted, all new suspension, brakes and steering fitted and the axles, engine and gearbox removed and rebuilt. The body was totally stripped down, wings removed and fully rebuilt and painted. All new bright work, wheels and tyres were fitted and the interior fully re-trimmed with Black leather seats and Grey carpets. We, as Grundy Mack in 1993 then sold the car and advised the new owner that it required running in, much the same way as a new car of this era would have been. A full photographic record of the restoration is with the vehicle which details the high standard of workmanship that achieveda concours level car. SVS 923 presents superbly with stunning bright paintwork with a high quality finish. 15 years after restoration, the MG was flatted down and re-painted again so a high quality bright Red finish was still in place, matching the high quality finish of the rest of the car. The bodywork today is exceptionally straight with lovely front and rear wings, perfect closing doors with impressive gaps and panel alignment. The chassis is in excellent condition, as are the battery boxes and wood floor panels. The interior is delightful with lovely aged Black leather with Red piping, superb carpets, headlining, dashboard and door cards. The engine bay is beautifully presented; the boot floor very clean and nicely painted and painted wire wheels are still in very good order many years after replacement. This MGA Coupe will fulfil many purposes, whether it is a classic car for annual use, long distance touring, rallies, and events or for preparing for show events, this car is ideal. Itcertainly has the potential to be put into competitions, or it can be a usable classic car in excellent condition capable of any journey. The last owner has mainly used the car for weekend use, shows and rallies and has thoroughly enjoyed the car. In summary, SVS 923 is very strong mechanically, requires no major work and presents very well in stunning condition throughout. Price: 34,995
