1926 Vauxhall 30/98 OE The Vauxhall 30/98 OE has been one of the cornerstones of the VSCC since the inception of the Club and we are pleased to offer this well-documented and fully sorted example, which is in excellent all-round condition. Smartly finished in grey with black wings and red leather interior the car is of striking appearance. Rebuilt some 20 years ago (fully documented), with a replacement Julian Ghosh chassis (ROE17/OE232) and an Eric Peppercorn replica Velox body. The engine was rebuilt by Alistair Templeton and the gearbox by Hulks Engineering including all new gears and shafts, whilst the rear axle was overhauled by Ian Polson. Car has been fitted with a Peugeot front axle with 16 inch Perrot Brakes. Since completion, the car has been enjoyed and used for many VSCC rallies, hill climbs and sprints with notable success. It also travelled to the Fluella Pass Hill Climb in Switzerland and has toured Northern France and has also achieved first class awards in two Welsh Rallies. The current custodian has spent in excess of £65,000 on the vehicle by the present owner - over the last few years to ensure that the car drives superbly and it has proved to offer excellent reliability during long distance touring. There are two extensive files of documentation provided with this car including a VSCC Buff Form, photographic evidence of the rebuild and numerous bills, drawings and technical information. This car represents exceptional value. For initial enquiries please call us on 01420-474919 or 07710-364945 Viewing by prior appointment please.

Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1938 Jaguar SS100 3.5 litre by Leonida & Co For Sale. Registration: WLD 100 Chassis no:39070 Engine no: M744E King Carol II of Romania was the first owner of the fifth 3 ½ litre SS Jaguar Saloon made, a couple of months earlier his son Prince Michael had taken delivery of the very first 3 ½ litre SS100 made to mark his 16thbirthday, as was custom for the Royals at the time. In May 1938 another car, a complete SS100 chassis with electrics and instruments but with no body was shipped to Romania by Anglo Cars and it had been assumed by Andrew Whyte that this was a spare chassis for Prince Michaels car. Chassis number 39070 was purchased from Jaguar by King Carols mother, the Queen Mother who had purchased it for her second son Prince Nicholas. Prince Nicholas mechanic Jean Calcianu designed an aluminum body for the car and the coachbuilder Leonida & Co, whose premises were very close to the royal palace built the car and finished it in the same blue that she wears today. The political climate was running against the monarchy and the Prince then gave the car to his Air Force flying instructor Captain Cula, who hid it, awaiting better times. Unfortunately, Captain Cula died in an aviation accident and his wife inherited the estate. Culas wife was later romantically involved with her solicitor and also owed him some money. He had therefore taken the car away along with its papers. An influential and wealthy Bucharest dealer who had heard of the car and its important history from Calcianu, approached his wife to see if she would sell him the car and was told of her relationship and debt to her solicitor. The dealer contacted Nicholas Mazilu, an engineer and motoring enthusiast to whom he owed a favour and arranged to meet the solicitor along with Mazilu and a member of the Security Services, the Securitat. The intent was to scare the solicitor into selling the car and parting with the papers, so as to recover his debt from the wife. The car was identified by the Securitat man as having belonged to the Royal Family, an obvious problem for the solicitor, so a sale price to Mazilu was agreed. Nicholas Mazilu was able to pick up the car and drive it away, but en route was stopped by a policeman as the car was too noisy and was being driven too fast. Nicholas used the car and even proposed to his future wife in it, but she insisted that he sell the car as it was too beautiful and attracted too many ladies from Brasov University, where he worked as an engineer. In January 1955 Nicholas sold the car to Dr Viorel Pop who lived in Hunedoara, Nicholas told him that he must be careful in driving the car due to its speed. This is what is known at present of the early history of the car other that Philip Scott offered the SS100 for sale in 2000 after purchasing it from a dealer in Hungary, the dealers name was never released, probably to protect himself from any questions from the Hungarian and Romanian authorities, about how the car came into Hungary and in his possession. The car was then sold at Coys auction and by this time was in need of restoration, the current owner purchased WLD 100 later in the year after initially being put off by the work ahead. Since then a painstaking and meticulous restoration was undertaken with incredible attention to detail. The current owner made several visits to Romania to talk to people and track the cars history, he has even had correspondence with the now King Michael to make sure every detail was correct. This 1 off car is certainly not shaped to the usual SS100 style, from the front the wings are completely different to the standard model and at the rear the spare wheel is set into the bootlid, reminiscent of the prototype SS90 that Jaguar made in 1935. Every inch of this car has been fettled to the highest of quality and the result is truly amazing, with a smooth and powerful 3.5 litre to pull you along effortlessly. The paint and interior are both to the highest of standards, the restoration was completed in 2011 and only 1,400 miles have been covered since then. Also included with the car are folders full of history (too much to photograph) many happy hours could simply be spent going through these and learing every detailed aspect of this unique cars history. Inluded in the files are, bills, detailed phototgraphs of every aspect of restoration, history sourcing and even correspondence with King Michael himself. A beautiful and historical car that would not look out of place at any of the worlds most prestigious concours events. In our showroom and ready for viewing.

Vintage and prestige are proud to offer this 1931 Lagonda 2-Litre Supercharged Low Chassis Tourer For Sale. Registration: PL 5560 Chassis no: OH9795 Engine no: 1541 Type: 2B . T2 Having established its reputation by winning the Moscow - St Petersburg Reliability Trial of 1910 with a 30hp six, Lagonda concentrated mainly on the production of light cars before reverting to sporting and luxury models in the mid-1920s with the introduction of the 14/60. The latter abandoned the firm's traditional in-unit gearbox in favour of a midships-mounted transmission, but of greater technical interest was the engine. Designed by Arthur Davidson, the 2-litre 'four' featured twin camshafts, mounted high in the block, operating inclined valves in hemispherical combustion chambers. Power output of this advanced design was a highly respectable 60bhp. For the 1929 season, a 'low chassis' Speed Model was introduced, featuring revisions to the frame's front end and a higher-compression engine fitted with twin carburettors. The Speed Model had resulted from the factory's Le Mans effort of 1928, when the 2-Litre driven by Andre D'Erlanger and Douglas Hawkes had finished 11th overall in the 24-Hour endurance classic. A classic example of racing improving the breed, the 'low chassis' 2-litre possessed markedly superior handling characteristics courtesy of its lower centre of gravity. For all its virtues, Davidson's engine was limited by its tortuous induction tracts and in 1930 a supercharged version was introduced to overcome this deficiency. The 'blower' was mounted vertically in front of the engine, which was fitted with a stronger crankshaft, while a 3-litre rear axle beefed up the transmission. A Powerplus supercharger was specified at first, but most 'blown' 2-litres came with a Cozette. Thus equipped, a 'low chassis' 2-litre was capable of up to 90mph. PL 5560 is in our showroom ready for viewing and offered in excellent all matching numbers condition. Mechanically the engine is a work of art, and after a fastidious restoration just by listening you can tell that the quality of craftsmanship has been to the highest of levels. Appearance wise the engine bay is a clean as the body and interior. Inside she is trimmed in maroon leather which beautifully contrasts the black exterior. The rear seats are latched at the top which conceals a full array of side screens allowing for wet weather motoring without a soaked right arm and disgruntled passengers. A VSCC certificate is also provided showing that this model has not been modified in any way other than practical hazard lights allowing this to pass the German TUV test.

Vintage and Prestige are proud to offer this 1924 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Barrel Sided Tourer in the style of Barker Four Wheel Brake For Sale. Registration: ND 5874 Chassis no: 124EM Engine no: S113 Mileage Shown: 3,740 This spectacular Silver Ghost is not Justin excellent condition cosmetically, but also mechanically and benefits from a full engine rebuild and a vast amount of Special Features fitted my the renowned P&A Wood. The Silver Ghost specialist James Black purchased 124EM in the 90s and undertook an impressive restoration and construction of the beautifully shaped barrel sided tourer. On completion Mr Black embarked on an epic journey to raise money for charity, the journey took 3 months, covered 9,000 miles and took 124EM across Europe and the Middle East. After a successful trip in 124EM, it was time to let her go. The new owner decided he too would like to take participate in a rally, with the 2009 trial in mind 124EM was send the P&A Wood for rally preparation on what would appear to be an open budget. Work began in late 2008, the bills from P&A on file are in excess of £ 200,000.00 and it is clear from the detailed invoices how meticulous the work was, mechanically every inch of the car was gone through to make driving as trouble free as possible, and if there is any trouble you can simply revert to the driving, running and maintenance instruction provided. List of Special Features Cooling system. The system has been modified and incorporates a cooling system that has been sealed with a coolant expansion tank. The tank is situated on the right hand to the front of the engine. All level checks should be done from this tank. The tank should be maintained to approximately 2/3 full. In extreme conditions, should coolant overflow, it will be pumped into this tank and will be retrieved back into the coolant system automatically when the engine cools down. The normal radiator filler cap should not be disturbed unless there is a reason, such as serious coolant loss or the cooling system being drained of coolant. Under these circumstances the coolant should be topped up from the radiator cap until it overflows and then the header tank topped up to 2/3 full. There is a sealed plug fitted in the original radiator filler snout and this can be removed using a screwdriver as a lever under the special lip provided for this. It must be ensured that the O ring mating faces are clean and the plug refitted after disturbing. Fuel Systems. There are two fuel systems on the car, the normal air pressure system operating from the rear fuel tank, and an auxiliary system operating via a tank in the rear compartment. In all there is a total capacity of 40 gallons; 18 in the main system, and 22 in the auxiliary fuel system tank. Auxiliary Fuel System. The tank has been fitted in the place of the rear squab, with a long filler snout, located to the left hand side and means locking the car by a key. The tank can easily be removed and re-installed. Operation is achieved by moving the tap positioned on the right hand side of the chassis just in front of the right hand rear wing between the road spring and the body. This tap is marked auxiliary and main. Turning the tap to Aux and operating the fuel pump switch on the dashboard operates the system. Auxiliary Fuel Pump. An auxiliary fuel pump is fitted which will operate with both fuel systems on the car, the main original fuel system, which is normally air pressure operated; and also the auxiliary fuel system which can be gravity operated. There are, therefore, a number of combinations by which the fuel supply can be gained in event of an emergency. Battery Master Switch. An electric battery master switch has been fitted, operated by a switch which is concealed under the edge of the dashboard. Easy Lubrication Modification. A new system has been fitted to make lubrication of the major components easier. There are two lubrication reservoirs and pump assemblies fitted in front of the carburettor under the right hand side of the bonnet. The front unit has a hand pull pump which when operated supplies oil in the right proportions to the cardon shaft, sphere and prop shaft centre bearing. Operating the pump for four consecutive strokes supplies the correct amount of lubricant for the 250 mile service procedure. The pump should be pulled firmly upwards, held for a few seconds and then released consecutively four times to provide the right lubrication. Should the pump fail to offer resistance the unit will be out of oil and should be topped up accordingly with ST90 gear oil. The lubrication unit to the rear with the threaded rod supplies steering box lubricant to the steering box and this should be turned four complete turns to supply the correct lubricant for the 250 mile service lubrication of the steering box. When the leaver becomes fully screwed in it should be unscrewed, the top removed and topped up with Penrite Steering Box Lubricant. Engine Sump Oil Level. The oil level in the engine sump has been modified to increase the oil capacity by two pints. The instructions to overfill by two pints when required still apply. Spotlights. High performance driving spotlights have been fitted. These perform as high beam lamps when driving, and the original headlamps are used as dipped beam only, operated by the dipswitch automatically. Jacking/ Towing. Special jacking/towing brackets have been fitted to the rear axle to assist with lifting, these special brackets are painted yellow and provided specifically for this purpose. Other Modifications. Side screens have been provided for poor weather conditions. A valve guide dust shield has been fitted. A safe has been provided in the centre compartment. A seat belt option has been fitted. All of this and more was provided in preparation for the 2009 Nile Trial. And other than the trial itself the engine has had little use in the past decade, obviously being a P&A engine, she still fires instantly and is beautifully smooth. 124EM was photographed outside the P&A building before setting off and unfortunately this is not how she returned. Whilst navigating through the desert tracks, the owners suddenly came across a lorry reversing towards them to collect fallen debris, they had to make immediate avoiding action and fortunately found them selves slung from the car and 124EM in the soft sand. Incredibly the owners injuries were minimal, no broken bones just bruises and torn muscles. 124EM also miraculously escaped with just cosmetic injuries, had they been driving on tarmac there certainly would have been a different story to tell for both owners and car. The current owner went to see the car on its return to P&A Wood, seeing the cosmetic damage to the wings and windscreen he decided that the vehicle could easily be brought back to its former glory, and fortunately the mechanicals and chassis had not been touched. 124EM was purchased and immediately sent to marque specialist Ted Overton. The current owner also decided to improve the exterior look by finishing the body in a stunning shade of silver with a polished aluminium bonnet. The paintwork today is still presented in excellent condition as too is the nickel work and leather interior. The mohair hood is easy to assemble and unmarked, the side screens are of the same quality, easy to fit and made to a brilliant standard, they certainly give you a fighting chance to make this Silver Ghost water tight. The front compartment has beautifully scalloped body work meaning the seats hold you in place, keeping you well away from the passengers side. The seats are finished in black fluted leather. Looking forward you see a high polished dashboard with the usual period instruments, plus the added Special Features gauges and switches, there are also 12v charging sockets tucked away in both corners. The rear compartment is spacious and would comfortably fit 3 passengers, or a large selection of luggage/touring equipment. There are RR logos in each door pocket, 12v charging sockets and a high polished, lockable centre cabinet. The rear seat base easily lifts out for fitment of the 22 gallon additional fuel tank, it is possible to store items on top of this as well. Both running boards house toolboxes, the N/S has removable layered trays with a large selection of tools. A remarkable 4 wheel brake rally/touring prepared Silver Ghost ready for such events as the Peking to Paris, in our showroom and ready for viewing.

1952 Bentley Mark VI Straight Eight Special Chassis number: B-54-PV Registration number: TVV850 A rakish & stylish Bentley Mark VI special constructed by a skilled motor engineer using a Mark VI standard steel Saloon as the basis. A huge amount of thought went into the construction of this car. As a B81 straight eight engine was to be used, the chasiss was lengthened at the front & reduced at the rear by a similar amount. This allowed for the gear box, bulkhead, steering column & foot pedals to be left in situ in thier original positions. This also allows for the radiator to be set back giving the car the correct proportions. The chassis modifications were completed using a large machine table which was flat enough & robust enough for the chassis to be strapped down to ensuring the new datum points were adhered to when performing the modifications. The body has been hand formed in aluminium using a wooden buck as a template, the design having been first sketched out & scaled up on an AO size drawing board. Subsequently the car was painted in masons black by Chester coachworks. The B81 engine breathes through four carburettors with the exhaust exiting into a stainless steel straight through unit. A higer ratio 2.88:1 Salisbury differential with Power-lok Limited Slip is fitted allied to Jaguar hydraulic Mark 7 Vacuum servo brakes to the rear of the car allowing the cars tremendous torque to be utilised as opposed to high revs. This is a fast powerful & quite loud car probably not well suited to shy retiring types. It goes as well as it looks & is a real pleasure to drive at speed down counrty B roads where it is in its element. The interior is of red Hide with maroon carpets. A black tonneau cover fits snugly over the cockpit when not in use. Behind the seats is useful luggage space for overnight bags etc. The dash board is of turned aluminium with the usual mark VI Bentley instrumentation fitted to it. A removable battery cut off switch behind the passengers seat adds to security when leaving the car unattended. The finished car is the subject of a variety of magazine articles detailing the project from start to finish. A full set of photographs come with the car detailing the construction process & the chassis modifications.

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.

1937 Derby Bentley 4.25 Liter Overdrive MR Series for sale. Chassis number: B-74-MR Registration number: GS8516 One of only 200 M Series overdrive cars built. This Derby Bentley 4.25 is fitted with the standard high ratio rear axle making for very long legged and rapid cruising at modern day speeds. The Derby Bentley 4.25 was re-bodied in 1978 to a James Young design as a two seater drop head, replacing the original Mulliner 2 door Saloon coachwork that had come to the end of its useful life. The aluminum coachwork is very elegant with a sweeping tail line giving a streamlined fastback appearance with the roof down. The Derby Bentley 4.25 has an easily erected black canvas hood that stows in the boot or behind the rear seats. The Derby Bentley 4.25 is finished in two tone mid blue over dark blue. To the interior is black leather matched with black carpets. The wooden dash board is recently refinished and contains the full complement of the usual instrumentation. Mechanically the Derby Bentley 4.25 is in fine order with the engine having been fully overhauled and rebuilt by noted Marque specialists, Ristes of Nottingham just 13,000 miles ago. The Derby Bentley 4.25 comes with extensive records from the last decades attesting to regular servicing and fettling. The engine starts readily and is a quiet powerful unit. This, combined with the light weight coachwork makes it a fast touring car well suited to rallies and long distance travel. ..
