The DB7 Dunhill Special Edition was unveiled in 1997 as a unique derivative produced for Alfred Dunhill, a leading fashion company specialising in men's luxury goods to include writing implements, lighters, time pieces and fragrances. This beautiful, low mileage example was supplied new on the 2nd October 1998 by Five Oaks Garage Ltd, Aston Martin Lagonda distributor for the Channel Islands. This rare special edition car is number 49 produced and is finished in the original Platinum Metallic 'Dunhill Silver' with Charcoal Conolly hide upholstery and is equipped with Design features from Dunhill to include White faced dials, Dunhill Millenium watch design alloy wheels, special edition door handles and gear lever/boot release surround and brushed aluminium interior panels replacing what was wood veneer as standard. This car is also the non-smoking version, where a humidor was replaced by an Alfred Dunhill grooming kit which is still with the car and fully equipped today. Whilst 150 of these specialedition's cars were planned, it is believed only 78 cars (Coupe and Volante) were actually built. The Aston Martin was registered in Jersey from 1998 to 2010 but was taken over to UK mainland for a service with Aston Martin agents in Chichester in November 1998 when a month old at 3280 and was serviced in April 1999 by the supplying dealer Five Oaks Ltd in Jersey at 8682 miles. Insurance discs for Jersey are with the car up to 2010 showing the car was registered on the island each year and in 2011 the DB7 was sold and brought over to mainland England at 43,000 miles. The DB7 was taken to Chiltern Aston Centre and was subject of 7,800 of work. This included a full service, fitting a new carbon canister breathing system, new lower wishbone bushes, new oil cooler and hoses, new hypoid unit pinion seal, new inlet manifold gasket, new heater water valve, new alarm siren, new air conditioning evaporator and expansion valve. The service was recorded in the service book at 43353 miles. In 2013 the Astonwas serviced with JCT600 Brooklands in Leeds at 45332 miles, invoice and service stamp present. In 2014 the Aston Martin DB7 sold to the most recent owner who has maintained the car exceptionally well and it has driven over to us from Leeds with a mileage of just over 57,000 from new. During his ownership the car has been treated to rebuilt brake calipers, new starter motor and immediately prior to arriving with us to be put on sale, the car has had new front shock absorbers, shocker top bushes, new boot latch, new steering arm and bolts, new bonnet cable, re-gased air-conditioning and a service at 57107 miles so the car is prepared and ready for its next owner. 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

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 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

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: 36,995

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

This absolutely first class Vauxhall Chevette HS has been subject of a major nut and bolt restoration and has covered just 1000 miles since. These very rare examples are now beginning to quickly rise in value and having had such a successful rallying career, these fabulous driving, iconic cars are becoming increasingly desirable and are in demand. The Vauxhall comes with an impressive photographic record of the full rebuild and this shows the stripped down, bare shell dipped in order to remove all paint. All rust was cut out of the bodysell and new panels and new metal let in as necessary. Inner and outer sills, rear quarter panels, doors, bulk head, battery tray, floors, boot floor and inner wings were all either replaced or repaired and only completion of the body rebuild, the shell was then etched primed inside, outside and underneath prior to professionally re-painting in its correct colour. The 2.3 litre engine was rebuilt with new standard liners and the correct 2.3 HS pistons that reportedlycost 1,000 alone. An oil cooler was fitted, the cylinder head rebuild with new valves, bronze valve stems, converted to unleaded and the car has also been treated to new electronic ignition with Lucas distributor, rebuilt/overhauled Twin 48 Dellotor carbs, new Club engine mounts, Kent cam pulleys and cam belt idler pulleys. The gearbox was stripped and treated to new bearings, main shaft, fourth and fifth gear syncromesh and the propshaft has been overhauled with new joints. Further work included an overhauled and re-cored radiator, twin cooling fans, overhauled rear axle, new half shaft bearings, uprated springs, new Billstein shocks, poly bushed throughout, new steering joints, rebuilt steering rack and the brakes fully overhauled to include uprated Willwood 4 pot callipers, new pads, shoes, overhauled servo, new copper brake pipes, braided stainless flexi pipes and new wheel rear wheel cylinders. The HS has also been treated to a check of all electrics and wiring plus new alternator and startermotor. As result of the rebuild, our Vauxhall performs superbly and has arrived in exceptional mechanical condition. The car presents superbly with a first class bodyshell, beautiful paintwork and has had all new rubbers, trims and decals. The interior is exceptional and has had new carpets and headlining, all new sound proofing, all clocks rebuilt and the door cards and seats have been fully re-trimmed in NOS materials. The finish inside the car is top class and the HS is nicely finished off with refurbished wheels, new tyres and a superbly detailed engine bay. There is no doubt this is a car for the serious collector and the cost of a full nut and bolt restoration to this standard would likely cost in excess of our asking price. This is a special car, and most certainly an up and coming modern classic that can only continue to develop new interest and desirability. Price: 34,995

JK 4823 was first registered on the 19th July 1935, making this a late PA with production of the PB starting in late 1935. Only 1,974 PA's were ever produced, and a total of 2500 P Types came off the production line at Abingdon between 1933 and 1936. The first cars produced were all two seaters and following its predecessor the J2 had its wheels painted to match the car's interior, this was soon dropped in favour of aluminium paint. P types were also available in three distinctive duo-tone paint schemes, each one came with matching upholstery. Options were Ulster Green and Dublin Green, Oxford Blue and Cambridge Blue and Carmine Red and Saratoga Red. From a 1960's Green continuation 'buff' logbook we know the MG spent the late 1960's and 1970's in the North East. In 1969 it changed hands moving from Lemington on the edge of Newcastle City centre to Whitley Bay and by 1974 the MG PA was in Gateshead. The car changed hands again later in the 1970's, staying local in Wallsend, Tyne and Wear. By 1988the MG was MOT tested in the suburbs of Glasgow and we believe the car was subject of an early 1990's restoration with the speedo being put back to zero in 1993. Since 1993 the MG has covered 8,000 miles, 7,500 covered in Scotland where it has been for almost 30 years. JK 4823 was collected by us in Scotland and has been subject of some light re-commissioning work totalling around 3,000. The carburettors have been rebuilt, the suspension has been treated to new king pins, track rod ends and drag links, brakes shoes have been re-lined, five brand new tyres have been fitted, fluids have been replaced, spark plugs changed and a new battery fitted. The MG is running and driving superbly, the engine is super fit and strong, the gear changes delightful and handling is first class and brilliant fun. JK 4823 has a very nicely aged finish with stunning deep paintwork, lovely chrome and the upholstery is stunning with an original look and feel to it. Due to our MG PA being a very well cared for olderrestoration that has now settled down perfectly, it has that honest and original feel that is so hard to replicate. It's a fabulous driver, its ideal for fair weather regular use and touring and it has full weather equipment just in case it gets caught in a down pour on a long-distance tour! JK 4823 is a stunning pre-war MG that is ready to use, ready to enjoy and requires no major expenditure. Price: 44,995

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.
