Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this Alfa Romeo 6C by Pinin Farina For Sale One of the first Pinin Farina bodied cars, in the year the bodyshop was founded. Rare model: maybe the only Pinin Farina cabriolet, based on the Turismo III series. Mille Miglia Eligible. As a pre-war, it has the plus of positioning early on the starting line. Matching Numbers. Black Gorizia four-numbers plates from 1945. Complete restoration, just finished. The 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Turismo Cabriolet (Pinin Farina), chassis no. 0412384 has an adventurous and very representative history of the motor racing and Italian costume, at the turn of the Second World War. It is believed that there are no other 6C Turismo Cabriolet built by Pinin Farina of 1930 (and, therefore, III series) survived. This car always lived in Italy, like many cars in working order, at the end of the war it was converted into a boxed truck. It was a typical operation of the period: on one hand, the lack of raw materials and, after the bombing, of the factories themselves, to resume production, weighed. On the other hand, economic resources were lacking, there was a large surplus of resources that the war left un-used and there was a great demand for practical vehicles, good for working. Thus, many military vehicles and even luxurious pre-war cars, abandoned by a dissolved ruling class, were available at low cost. The 6C 1750, chassis no. 0412384 was found in the late 1960s in barn-find conditions. Chassis number and engine number correspond with the historic GO7673 black plate. It still keeps its log book dated November 7th, 1945. From the chronological extract, it is possible to see the wording trasformabile (convertible), which the car originally had. Coach built by Pinin Farina, in the year the bodyshop was established, it is one of the first Pinin Farina bodied cars and it was marked with a first design badge. Who, in the 1960s, bought the car found, asked Luigi Fusi for advice on how to proceed with a thorough restoration. Several were the letters, between the two. The restoration began in the 1970s by the Bonfanti museum, reconstructing the rear and revising the entire mechanics of the car. The car remained unfinished until 2017 when the restoration was resumed by the current owner. Thanks to the several parts preserved, the original color of the car has been recovered. The car is accompanied by a large number of documentary photographs and letters, from the discovery to its restoration. The car is perfect, with the recently completed restoration. It is a very rare model, versatile in its use and eligible for the main races for vintage cars, such as the Mille Miglia and in the main elegance competitions. In our showroom and ready for viewing.

Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1903 Mors 24/32HP (5,000cc) Covered Double Phaeton For Sale. Registration:BS 8026 Chassis - details above Engine - details above Dated by the VCC: 1903 This incredible piece of motoring history comes to us from long-term ownership and in excellent mechanical condition; the Brighton run is not a race but if it was, this would be a serious competitor. Owned by Mr William Pollock of the Pollock auto showcase Pennsylvania from 50s up until 1981. Purchased by renowned collector John Mozart and sold to the current vendor in 1986. The car was purchased with a ticket to the 1986 Brighton run which was completed successfully. During the run they noticed that excess oil was burning. They removed the cylinder blocks, had them crack tested. The cylinders were bored and lined, and all the pistons were fitted with new manufactured rings. Radiator was removed, flushed and cleaned, Gearbox was removed and fully overhauled, including new bearings and seals. Transmission brake assembly and shoes were overhauled. Every year there has been 2-3months worth of preparation before each run, they have completed over 20 runs with not a single DNF! This same preparation has been carried out prior to us collecting the vehicle so she is ready to drive. The body is a magnificent one-off design Covered Double Phaeton, she is magnificent from every angle! There is an abundance of brass covering the front of the car; factory fitted Phare Ducellier oval headlamps, Auteroche side lamps, Bleriot Spotlamp, Boa constrictor horn and all of the badges you could ever want! The dashboard is again full of interesting items; there is a period fire extinguisher to the N/S and a modern one to the O/S (one for show and one for just in case), the central lubrication system that works by being pressurised by hot water is fitted to the centre with the central greasing system next to it. There are large period brass mirrors to either side. The overall look of the red paintwork and rubber matting is patinated and original, if only the car could speak, we would have some remarkable stories spanning some 116 years. The buttoned leatherwork clearly has been well treated as it is all in excellent condition and comfortable to sit it. There are neatly folded side screens that simply roll down and protect you from the inclement weather. The rear passengers are completely covered and entomb themselves in the rear warmth and comfort; the driver and passenger however may end up with a slightly damp leg and arm. To the roof you will see a beautiful selection of period luggage, which was carefully purchased over a matter of years, this fits in the roof rails with millimetres to spare, and even has a tonneau cover to protect it. Even the luggage is well thought out and cared for! There is also a provision and straps to carry spare tyres on the roof, tucked away underneath the rear seat and in the N/S running board box are more inner tubes than you would eve need on one journey. To the rear is another large storage trunk which with brass finishings and body colour paintwork. Underneath the bonnet lies a 4 cylinder, 5 litre masterpiece! Once shown how, the starting procedure is simple; just release the de-compression lever at the right time and she fires instantly. The engine is a T head with aluminium cylinder blocks, there are 4 forward speeds, double chain drive, plain bushed wheels and an easily released Sprague for hill holding. The London to Brighton Veteran Car Run is 54 miles, we would suggest that once you have completed this with ease then carry on driving, take a ferry to France and find out how capable this incredible Mors really is. The way she drives is well ahead of its time and there are cars 10/15 years newer that are not as advanced. In our showroom and ready for viewing.

1923 Maharajah of Gwalior Rolls Royce 20hp Barker All weather Cabriolet Chassis Number: 71A6 Registration Number: EL1017 The best of the best. This car was ordered new by The Maharajah of Gwailor & was shipped to India in 1923. IN 1928 he sold it to the Nirzam of Hyderbad, reputedly the richest man in India at the time. It was fitted when new with the current coachwork by Barker (Body Number 5055) taking the form of a very versatile all weather cabriolet: about the most expensive coachwork available at that time. Being an early car it has the 3 speed centre change gear box & rounded radiator edges. The car comes to us with a massive history & impeccable provenance including a hand written letter from the son of The Nirzam of Hyderbad recounting his memories of taking the car Tiger hunting back in the day & also driving it along the edges of rice paddies whilst hunting snipe & waterfowl. The exterior paint is Dark Green over Black & in fine order. To the interior is dark green lightly patinated leather with the roof being lined in West of England cloth. The wind up division has angled windows & makes the front cabin quite snug when driving with the roof down. From the history file we glean the following: THE PRINCE'S "BABY ROLLS' 71A6 is an early 1923 2Ohp with original Barker cabriolet body. The first owner was the Maharajah of Gwalior and the car remained in India until 1967. In 1928 the car was given to H.H. of Gwalior when she bore a son: Prince Nawab Habeeb Jung the Ameer of Paigah of Hyderabad'. The prince and his family affectionately referred to the car as our Baby Rolls as it stood alongside a 1925 Silver Ghost seven-seater tourer, later sold to Bill Meredith Owens and in which Her Majesty the Queen rode during Jubilee year. The above information was gleaned from a letter the Prince senf to a previous owner and I quote: "l've taken this car into the jungle on Tiger Shoots and chased buck across country. She went through paddy fields on snipe and duck shoots.'. I purchased the car in London in July 1980. The run home to Wiltshire down the M4 proved that Perhaps the brakes needed attention, although a new MOT came with the car! Temporary adjustments were made until the brake system was completely overhauled during the 1980/81 winter. Although basically sound, both mechanically and bodily, much work was needed to restore the car to her former glory. Front wheel hubs, gearbox and clutch have received attention and the car runs much smoother with taut spokes. When purchased, neither the windows~ the split windscreen or the three part centre division operated correctly. After attention to window mechanisms and with new safety glass all round, another job was done. Door hanging has been adjusted and new hood frames made. A visit to Cirencester Park in pouring rain, with the afternoon spent catching drips (torrents in bowls etc), quickly convinced me that new hooding might ease frustration! Resplendent with new hood and most brightwork renicke!led 71A6 now looks very elegant. The radiused front edge to the radiator and the scuttle mounted Stephen Grebe! tiger tights are unusual, likewise the silver faced instruments with nickel bezels as per original order card. Most mechanical and bodywork has been carried out by Ashton Keynes Vintage Restorations, and Tony Cobum of Blunsdon, Swindon, was responsible for trimming; first class workmanship as usual. More recently the engine has had a full rebulid wich new pistons, a reground crank & new big & little ends along with a new aluminium cylinder head. As a result the car runs beautifully in perfect silence with oil pressure at 28 PSI even when hot & the temperature gauge never reading over 80 degrees even on long climbs in hot weather. The car runs readily at 45 to 50MPH up hill & down dale. This is a rare opportunity to purchase what is possibly the best 20HP we have had the pleasure to handle with the added bonus of being a Maharajas car that escaped from India prior to the ban on exports coming into place from that country. It abounds with period details & is in superb order needing nothing having been supplied to the current onwer by the brothers P & A Wood & having covered a scant few miles since then. There are huge & meticulous bills from Ashton Keynes restoration for a massive refurbishment of the car undertaken upon its return to these shores from India in the 1980's. An interesting Magazine article about Princess Ezra, The Nirzams descendent comes with the car, detailing her restoration of the Nirzams Chowmahalla Palace & having to deal with the Nirzams 42 elderly concubines who were still in residence when she took over the running of the palace.

1936 Rolls Royce 20/25 Hooper Sports Saloon Chassis number: GTK4 Registration number: Applied for. A really exceptional 20/25 with spacious Hooper Sports Saloon coachwork. We first saw this car about 10 years ago in the collection of the late Helmut Krogman of the hanseatic port of Lubeck standing next to his silver Ghost. The car had just come out of a fastidious restoration including a bare metal respray & a full engine & mechanical rebuild. The car is finished in royal claret over black with the paint being in lovey order. To the interior is brand new maroon hide along with brand new red carpets. The burr walnut has also been removed & refinished. The car has done very very few miles since restoration as it was part of a collection of 15 or so cars with Krogman being the only driver. On the road it drives beautifully. Taut play free steering, a powerful silent engine, smooth gear changes & a pleasant undulating ride would sum it up Mechanically the car is in spot on condition. The engine starts readily & runs cool at 75 or so degrees with excellent oil pressure. The one shot lubrication system is connected & working correctly. We have conducted a service upon it due to its lack of use since Mr Krogmans passing a few years ago. Regrettably The car came to us with not a scrap of paperwork other then the German registration. Having handled othe cars from the collection, we can attest to the high standards of work that Krogman had done to the cars he owned. This is a very very late 20/25 being completed in 1936. It wears very spacious coachwork by hooper of a design more commonly found on 25/30's. The boot is very large allowing for carriage of an assortment of suitcases for touring. The car also has a large sunroof which easily slides open affording the occupants semi alfresco motoring. The quality of the Leather inside is superb with lovely document pouches fitted to the door cards. If I were to fault the car it would be on the ghastly modern fuel gauge fitted where the original was. We are currently looking for a correct period unit to replace this but do not guarantee to have found one prior to sale, although a trip to Beaulieu may rectify this. Indicators & flashers are fittted to the car in deference to the German Tuff Test. To sum up; This is a fine car in way way above average condition which clearly has had massive money spent upon it leaving it wanting for nothing. (Other then a correct petrol Gauge). It should afford the new owner years of trouble free motoring. A gallery of large high-resolution pictures may be viewed on our website.

Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1911 Daimler 6-23 Phaeton sleeve valve For Sale. Registration: BF 5777 Chassis no: 8701 Engine no: 9021 Beginning with the production of a two cylinder, four hp car based on the existing Panhard in 1897, Daimler of Coventry established a well deserved reputation for quality and reliability. Convincing proof was offered when one such Daimler was the first motor car to traverse the entire length of the British aisles between Lands End and John OGroats. King Edward VII purchased a six hp Daimler in 1900, beginning a long association between Englands royalty and Daimler. A line of two and four cylinder models were produced under J.S. Critchley over the next few years, and then in 1902, a new three car model line, designed by Edmund Lewis was introduced. King Edward again chose a new Daimler, this time a 22 hp model. Daimler was highly regarded for performance, with a succession of four and six cylinder automobiles, powered by engines ranging from 3.3 litres to a mammoth 10.4 litres. However, soon after Daimler opted for refinement over raw power with the adoption of the sleeve valve engine designed by American Charles Knight. Following the merger of Daimler with BSA in 190, the Daimler model line up was streamlined in the interest of effiency. The handsome 1911 Daimler Phaton offered here is one of the earliest products of the Daimler-BSA union, and it is said to have once been a personal car of King George V, however no recors are available to support this claim. A meticulous, concours quality restoration of the body and interior was undertaken in the 90s with its quality confirmed by concours wins at the Meadow Brook and at the prestigious Pebble Beach Councours dElegance, where it was awarded the coveted Lord Montagu of Beaulieu Award for the most significant English car. The exterior is finished in two beautiful shades of green with fine red coachlines flowing through the length of the car. Various brass finishing adorn the Daimler, to see the quality of in-person truly is remarkable. The interior again meets Concours standards with the unmarked buttoned leather and Wilton carpet to the rear. Key features of this Daimler are the inline six-cylinder engine, four-speed gearbox, live front and rear axles with semi elliptic leaf springs, rear coil spring dampers and rear wheel internal expanding brakes and foot-operated transmission brake. In more recent years an eye-watering amount has been spent at the renowned specialist N P Engineering, where every aspect of the engine and gearbox was stripped and re-assembled to the highest of qualities. The outcome is truly remarkable with one of the sweetest engines we have heard. This handsome, refine and well-equipped automobile would be suited to any collection of eclectic Brass Era motor cars, in our showroom and ready for viewing.

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.
