This exceptional Aston Martin DB6 MKI was supplied new in Silver Birch with Blue upholstery and manual transmission. This is an original UK RHD matching numbers, correct car with a fabulous well documented history. The car was first registered on the 25th May 1966 and it was supplied new by Cyril Williams Motors Ltd to a private owner in Shropshire who owned the car for five years. A letter dated March 1974 from the first owner confirms he covered around 20,000 miles in the car and during his ownership it had proven completely trouble free. Apart from service items the only replacement parts required were new exhaust silencers. In August 1971 the Aston changed hands for the first time and was to be owned by a Director of a Reading based Financial Services business. During his ownership the Aston was maintained by a small Aston and Jaguar specialists and when he sold the car it had covered 30,000 miles from new. In February 1974 the DB6 was with its third owner based in Southampton and a letterdated November 1976 confirms he sold the car with a mileage of 49,000. He too had excellent service from the car, only needing to change an engine mount, battery and brake discs and pads during his ownership. In 1977 at 51100 miles the Aston Martin was treated to a new clutch, new exhaust system and the dealership carrying out this work just 120 miles later then fully serviced the car ahead of selling the Aston Martin to a Major of the Royal Pioneer Corps. The Major, stationed out in Hannover, West Germany owned the car until 1986 taking the mileage to around 92,000. During his ownership the Aston was superbly maintained, evidence being various invoices throughout his ownership. Work in this period included overhauling the front and rear brakes, in 1980 over 2380 was spent at Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd, Newport Pagnell on a new radiator, new timing chain, new distributor drive, rebuilding the cylinder head with new valves, guides, springs etc, overhauling the carburettors and fitting a new propshaft,gearbox mountings and clutch. In May 1986, Queensbury Road Garage, who supplied the car to the Military Major several years previous sold the car for the second time, to a private owner in Northamptonshire, mileage recorded at 92644. From 1986 to 1995 the Aston stayed with the one owner who spent a substantial amount of money on the car. Over the nine-year period only around 4000 miles were covered but this largely original car was restored over this period with as much originality retained as possible. Soon after buying the car in 1986 the bodywork was completely stripped down, and the car re-sprayed in its original colour. Pages and pages of invoices are present from GTC Engineering who rebuilt the engine compartment and carried out various detailed work, so the vehicle was ready to be exhibited at events and shows. By 1998 the DB6 was owned by a Covent Garden based lawyer who mainly used London based Aston Martin specialists Pugsley & Lewis Ltd and Ian Mason Aston Martin Services to maintain thecar. Invoices during the late 1990's and 2000 total in the region of 15,000 for maintenance and upkeep. In 2001 at 112,000 miles the Aston Martin was sold to a Mayfair based entrepreneur who owned the car for two years, covered 4000 miles and since 2004 it has been with one owner who over almost fifteen years has taken this largely original car to the next level in terms of drivability and condition. In 2004 the engine was removed from the vehicle, completely down and rebuilt with all parts supplied by Aston Martin Engineering Ltd. The original engine was rebuilt to standard specification, liners were honed, new big end and main bearings fitted and the crankshaft re-ground. A report of all the engine work and photographs are enclosed in the detailed history file. During the earlier stages of ownership, we have receipts for new wheel bearings, clutch flexi hose, clutch slave cylinder, new coolant hoses, new thermostat and gasket, all new ignition items and new classic static safety belts withbuckles. In 2014 EZ power steering was installed, a new electric fuel pump fitted and in 2016 the DB6 was treated to new front and rear anti roll bar drop links and new rear shocker links. Also in 2016 the car was treated to a full bare metal re-paint. This included removing all chrome work that was re-plated at top UK specialists in Derby at a cost of 3720, windscreens were removed, and the car taken back to the bare rolling shell. The bodyshell was found to be in outstanding condition and the panels were then prepared and the car fully re-painted in its correct original colour to the very highest of standards. The Aston was re-fitted with all its re-chromed brightwork, all new rubber seals and a brand-new set of Pirelli Cinturato tyres taking 2016 expenditure to around 20,000. More recently in 2018, a further 4,500 has been spent on replacing the original carpet set with a top-quality high grade professionally fitted wool carpet set, boot carpet as per original specification and the carburettorshave been treated to a full rebuild. Since purchasing the Aston Martin in 2004, 2500 miles have been covered taking the total mileage from new to 119000 and the car is now offered onto the market in first class condition throughout. This is a very special car and has the important provenance of being an original UK supplied matching numbers car, still finished in its correct original colours and having been supplied new with the highly desirable 5 speed ZF gearbox. The car also has the provenance of an extensive, well documented history file that warrants its mileage of 119000 miles in 53 years, an average of less than 2250 miles per annum. The car has also covered just 2500 miles since its engine rebuild and having had a program of cosmetic work in 2016 the car presents in outstanding condition. It is also important to highlight this car has never required major restoration work. It has spent the majority if not all its time taxed, MOT tested and, on the road, and has never been left todeteriorate. Finding good quality highly original cars of this age can prove difficult and still retaining its original leather seats is testament to the car's careful owners. This DB6 is now really the best of both worlds in that it has pristine bodywork, paintwork and chrome, carpets have finally been replaced after 52 years so the interior presents beautifully with some very nice patina to the original leather that cannot be replicated. On the road the car is truly outstanding. The 3995cc standard and rebuilt engine is first class with outstanding performance further improved with the recent carburettor overhaul, the EZ powered light steering is a true delight, the brakes and suspension feel exceptional on the road and the five speed ZF gearbox is perfect with smooth changes up and down the gearbox. This is a detailed, superbly presented and exceptional driving car that has clearly had a meticulous, discerning owner who has cherished this car and taken it to a very high standard. Price: 399,995

This UK matching numbers E-Type was manufactured on the 31st May 1962 and left the factory in Carmen Red.

This is a beautiful example, certainly worthy of winning shows and events. The car has been rebuilt to a very high standard and the condition is exceptional throughout the car. The rust free bodyshell is outstanding and bonnet and door gaps are excellent. The paint finish is first class and the engine bay has been detailed superbly. The E-Type is as one would expect having been treated to a bare shell restoration. The chrome work is superb and the 72 spoke 6.5' chrome competition wire wheels are as new. The interior has beenbeautifully re-trimmed and the leather looks brand new. The carpets, headlining, dashboard, dials, door cards and webasto sunroof are all in excellent condition. 6691 FH does not drive like the average early E-Type, the car has some wonderful modifications making this an incredible car to drive. Like many early E-Type's, the brakes have been upgraded to four pot callipers and a Kenlowe fan and Luminition system have been fitted. 3700 has been spent on a FABS E-Type Ltd 5 speed gearbox which is a completely new gearbox specifically made for the classic Jaguar range. The very impressive gearbox is a design incorporating new gear sets and the gearbox uses the standard MOSS stud pattern and spigot, the main case and tail housing are manufactured from aircraft grade billet alloy and the box is much quieter in service. The gear lever is also in the correct position and looks standard making this a very attractive upgrade. Driving the E-Type and changing through the gears is wonderful, it is perfectlysmooth with no rattles or vibrations, truly faultless and ideal for longer distance touring. Further upgrades include a 1600 complete new stainless steel exhaust system including manifolds. The E-Type has a superb exhaust note enhancing the enjoyable driving experience. Since restoration, between 2001 and 2012 a further 14000 was spent on the car. This included annual maintenance and servicing, new ball joints, track rod ends, tyres and various other new parts . The E-Type only covered 2500 miles from 2001-2012 and we sold the E-Type in late 2012 to a local customer who intended using the car for long distance touring. From late 2012 to late 2014, the E-Type covered 8000 faultless miles. On one occasion the E-Type toured France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland, Germany and Switzerland. The car performed superbly and was tested over the Alpes dealing with high gradients without fault. Over this one trip 6691 FH covered 2000 miles. Between late 2012 and 2014, in the region of 15000 was been spentensuring this is one of the most superbly set up and top class driving early E-Types we've seen in recent years. Work included rebuilding the cylinder head (over 4,000 alone) with new cam followers, valve springs, camshaft bearings, re-lined valves etc. Preparation prior to European touring included all new wheel cylinders and thousands of pounds have been spent on detail improvements such as a new headlining, door panels, rear arch covers and rear 1/4 panels. Invoices for all recent work are with the car. Having covered 8000 miles in two years, the owner decided to part with the car in late 2014 and we sold the E-Type to a British collector based in mainland Europe. Having been so incredibly well set up for European touring, the new owner collected the E-Type from us in Malton and drove the car faultlessly back to Switzerland. In four years of ownership the Jaguar has proven to be a delight, never once letting its owner down, always performing exceptionally and it has proven to be an excellentbuy. This is a fabulous opportunity to purchase an increasingly sought after UK 3.8 FHC with matching numbers that now has proven reliability for long distance touring. The car has been superbly rebuilt and almost 30,000 has been spent since rebuild to ensure this is the ideal car for touring. Not only is it an outstanding car to drive, it is quite simply stunning in presentation and one of the most attractive early cars we've seen in quite some time. Price: 124,995

This is an incredibly special car with low mileage, matching numbers, factory colour combination and a wonderful original upholstery. Further still, it is one of very few factory produced Automatics and is quite simply sensational to drive and absolutely perfect for relaxed, long distance touring. UWK 398 is a car we know well having previously sold it to one of our long term regular customers, a Northamptonshire based Jaguar collector. UWK 398 left the factory in Cream with Red upholstery and was one of just 595 LHD DHC automatic examples ever supplied. UWK 398 was supplied new by Jaguar Cars New York and first registered to D B Ortman. The Jaguar spent 41 years with the same family in the U.S before being sold to the UK with a guarantee from the dealership that the car had only covered a genuine 29000 miles. This XK150 now has a recorded mileage of just 31200 having had substantial programme of restoration work and some use in the UK since. The car is finished in Cream/Old English White with Redupholstery as it left the factory and presents beautifully with chrome wire wheels and recently replaced Black mohair hood and cover.

The interior was sympathetically restored with original door cards being rebuilt using aged, factory fitted covers, new kick panels and furflexes have had to be made and the original sixty one year old leather seats are still in the car. A brand new hood and lining was trimmed and fitted and a new boot mat supplied and fitted. A new spare wheel board was made up and a set of stainless steel wire wheels were supplied with brand new Blockley radial tyres. The original wheels and tyres have been left with the car, the original Dunlop Roadspeed tyres giving the car further provenance. Front and rear bumpers and over-riders were re-chromed finishing off the exterior beautifully. A major programme ofmechanical work was also carried out and this included removing and stripping the gearbox and re-conditioning the torque converter. The steering was professionally converted to RHD and the cylinder head was uprated to 'Big Valve' head with new valves and seats to unleaded specification. The block was cleaned out and core plugs were replaced, the carburettors were upgraded to HD8 2' and new timing chain, tensioner and guides were fitted. The thermostat and housing, fan belt, plugs, distributor cap and HT leads were replaced, the radiator re-conditioned and a Kenlowe fan fitted.

A new stainless steel exhaust system with six branch manifold was fitted, new Xenon headlights fitted and all the loom and electrics checked through. Anupgraded heater was also supplied, as well as a new electronic fuel pump and sender unit. After some time off the road, the fuel tank was also flushed, cleaned and sealed and various rubbers replaced. As expected with such a comprehensive mechanical overhaul and restoration, the XK150 is truly outstanding to drive. The automatic gearbox is incredibly smooth, it really is impressive and far more advanced than one would expect from 1958. The engine is tremendous with wonderful power, performance and acceleration. The car sounds truly outstanding and feels tight, precise, accurate and is a delight to drive. UWK 398 has so much to offer with a top class bodyshell, stunning underside, such strong mechanical condition having had a very expensive programme of work and of course, the trim, with a nice mix of new and original that reminds us the car is 61 years old.

265 RMV was first registered on the 21st May 1958 and was supplied new in Cornish Grey to Neil Tool Co Ltd, Tottenham, North London. The XK spent it's early life in London, Surrey and Essex but was off the road for around 30 years, discovered in a collapsed garage in 2002. From 2002 to 2005 the XK was subject of a 138,000 rebuild and transformation, creating a first class driving car that would perform, handle and offer the ultimate XK driving experience in comfort and style, more than capable of dealing with modern road conditions. A full body off restoration began and in order to achieve the very best results, a brand new powder coated chassis was purchased. All of the panel work was replaced and repaired where necessary and an early decision was made to remove the front wing side lights from the top of the wings as this was an area that encouraged corrosion. A spare wheel was carefully fitted and is accessible from outside under the boot floor. On completion the coachwork was refinished in theoriginal Jaguar colour of Cornish Grey. Mechanically, the original 3.4 litre engine was replaced with a rebuilt series three XJ6 4.2 unit and fuelled by throttle bodied fuel injection with PECO fuel injectors. Submersible fuel pumps deliver the fuel, whilst power is fed through a Jaguar five speed gearbox with S-type selector and 3:31 Power Lock differential at the rear. An engine management system controls fuel, ignition and cooling fans and Gaz coil over shock absorbers and springs have been fitted. Brakes are highly upgraded with a twin circuit hydraulic system with adjustable bias at the front and rear. Four pot callipers with vented and cross drilled discs are at the front and Series III XJ6 callipers at the rear. To accommodate the taller driver, a collapsible and adjustable steering column has been introduced and finished with a wood rimmed Mota-Lita steering wheel. New wire wheels and a set of 215/65/16 Pirelli P6000 tyres fitted. A bespoke wiring harness incorporates a twelve volt negativeearth system with electric rev counter and odometer that was zeroed at completion of the build. The front headlamps are modified original J type units now with halogen bulbs and side lights. An electric power steering system eases driving as does the two speed wiper motor system for clear vision in all conditions; air conditioning has also been added for comfort making the car ideal for some summer Continental touring, electric windows are another modification present. The interior has been trimmed using the finest quality materials. The seats are early XJS trimmed in red leather and incorporate headrests for safety. A digital radio and electric aerial provide the entertainment and two lockable compartments can be found behind the seats and the back panel folds down revealing the boot compartment. For additional convenience and security, the XK is secured by remote central locking and has the additional benefit of a Tracker. 265 RMV is absolutely outstanding to drive and offers a relaxed andcomfortable experience with the car staying in a straight line without having to make constant inputs to the steering. All gauges record correct temperatures and pressures and performance is something quite special. The engine is perfect, it sounds wonderful and under acceleration is quick offering impressive performance and is a car that keeps up with modern traffic. The five speed gearbox is a delight up and down the gears and the car handles perfectly. Since completion of the rebuild, 11,500 miles have been covered since completion of the rebuild proving this is a car ideal for regular or even everyday use. This impressive rebuild has been carried out by a well respected XK specialist and some exceptional engineering and workmanship has gone into this car. Include the purchase of an XK150 FHC needed restoration, a project like this today would cost in the region of 200,000. The fact that is has been completed over 12 years and has covered 11,500 miles should give real confidence that this is nowa well used, proven car that really offers an incredible driving experience. The XK attended Goodwood Revival last year and is without the doubt the very best driving XK we have ever experienced. If looking for a classic Jaguar with modern performance, comforts and modifications, this should be the car to buy. Price: 149,995

Owners of these cars could return their cars to the factory for this very special upgrade but naturally it is the genuine factory original Widebody cars that are the more desirable and valuable. Only 26 factory built Widebody cars were ever produced and further provenancewith this car is in the fact that it is the first vehicle built with the improved specification and this is shown in the parts manual where this car, chassis number 60193 is referred to at the top of some pages as the start point of where specification changed. Not only does this car hold exceptional provenance, it has only covered a genuine 24,000 miles from new and comes with its original handbooks and service book, spare keys, letter from Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd confirming warranty repairs and mileages in the cars early life, the majority of main dealer receipts and invoices and even a compliment slip to the last owner from the Factory Master Technician who conducted the original PDI. The certificate of ownership confirms the car was registered new 'AM V8', owned by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd, Newport Pagnell and on the 12th January 1995 the car was PDI inspected by G.Higgs. The first service was conducted on the 20th February 1995 by Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell where it has beenmaintained for most of its life.

This truly unique Porsche is the result of a German Porsche enthusiast's desire to create the ultimate air cooled 911 variant providing extreme performance and capability in all conditions, further enhanced on its arrival in the UK by Harry Metcalfe, British Motoring journalist and creator of Evo Magazine. With no expense spared, a genuine last air cooled model 993 Turbo has been enhanced into a GT2 whilst retaining the Turbo's four wheel drive thus creating an incredible, totally unique super car with outstanding performance that could essentially be a rapid driving 4 wheel drive GT2 version, something Porsche never created. The project began in 2011 when a suitable top quality 993 Turbo was sourced in Guards Red. The car was delivered to highly respected Porsche experts S&N Automobilzentrum in Aachen who were commissioned to convert the car to GT2 specification using original factory parts. Invoices are with the car clearly showing a no expense spared program of work that essentially took the 993beyond GT2 spec. Not only were genuine Speedline wheels and a factory GT2 body kit fitted, something that could realistically only be undertaken by true Porsche experts, K24 hybrid turbo's with 100 Zeller Kats were fitted allowing for a power output of 520bhp, some 90bhp more than the standard GT2. When the car arrived in the UK, the Porsche was sold to Harry Metcalfe and subsequently delivered to Porsche specialists Autofarm. They inspected, serviced and further uprated the car with the fitment of lightweight GT2 Motorsport Glass, colour coded GT2 bucket seats, removal of sound proofing material and rear seats as GT2 specification, fitting of a bespoke standard GT carpet set and colour coded seat belts, GT2 gear mechanism along with a program of detailing work. The Porsche was then enjoyed and became very well known with various motoring enthusiasts with appearances at many events and track days and soon gained a strong social media presence. Having owned the car for several years, prior toparting with the car it was sent back to Autofarm for further fettling and a new gearbox in order to ensure its absolutely right and ready for the next owner to enjoy. Recently serviced and fitted with a brand new set of tyres, this outstanding, totally unique car offers the opportunity to own the ultimate air cooled 911 as chosen and so named by a highly respectable and experienced motoring writer and collector. This is a real one of a kind example, and a car that offers incredible performance. With just 5000 miles since its rebuild and upgrading, the Porsche is in exceptional mechanical condition with thousands and thousands of pounds worth of receipts present in the history file. The exceptional mechanical condition is equally matched by the impressive, pristine paintwork and bodywork, re-furbished genuine Speedline wheels and recently fitted GT2 interior. Repeating the process of creating such a special car would cost well in excess of our asking price and to further enhance the car it isoffered onto the market with the displayed, very valuable registration mark H550. This is an incredibly quick, powerful, fun car and the ultimate air cooled Porsche with the perfect combination of 993 Turbo 4WD and GT2 specification. Price: 179,995

This beautifully presented UK Home Market Jaguar XK120 was supplied new by Leicester based agents Sanderson-Holmes Limited and registered CRC 919 on November 2nd 1951. The XK120 spent its early life in Derbyshire in regular use but by the late 1970's the car was no longer taxed and off the road. In 1984, the XK re-appeared in Norwich and four years later in 1988 it was sold by Mill Lane Engineering Ltd in need of restoration to a Surrey based enthusiast. The new owner commissioned Mill Lane Engineering Ltd to carry out top class full nut and bolt restoration that cost in the region of 88,000. The XK had a no expense spared rebuild that saw every componenet removed, replaced or re-conditioned and a superbly well documented invoice file and photographic record details the work. The bodyshell of CRC 919 was taken back to bare metal and photographs confirm the car had the most superb, straight bodyshell. The body was prepared and re-painted in Black cellulose paint and the interior re-trimmed with thecorrect pattern seats finished in Brown and Tan using the finest Connolly hides. The XK was built up to present as a total standard car with original steel wheels with correct painted hub caps, rear wheel spats, single pipe exhaust system, correct period dashboard instrumentation and a factory specification interior as mentioned above. CRC 919 was completeley rebuilt mechanically and additioned upgrades included an 8:1 compression cylinder head and electric fan. The XK120 was completed with a brand new double duck hood, sidescreens and tonneau cover. After two years of careful, diligent work, the XK was completed to an exceptional standard and over the next fifteen years covered almost 2000 miles, used sparingly for club events and local shows. After a total of 17 years with one owner, the XK changed hands and was soon to be owned by a London based Investment Bank in Burlington Street, W1. In 2012 CRC 919 was purchased by its most recent owner and due to lack of use, was taken to Guy Broad for aprogram of re-commissioning work. This included rebuilding the carbs, replacing the lever arm shocks, fitting new tyres, rebuilding the steering box, idler and steering system, fitting new batteries, replacing the master cylinder, fitting new wheel cylinders, brake linings, new anti-roll bar bushes and fully servicing the car. Between 2015 and 2017, further mechanical work has been carried out to include an engine rebuild. Engine specialists stripped the unit, fully re-manufactured and balanced the engine and carried out a rear oil seal conversion. Whilst removed, the gearbox was treated to new front and rear oil seals and gaskets. Guy Broad supplied a new pedal box and front brake disc kit. In total, a further 15,000 has been spent on this XK120 to ensure its ready for regular use and long distance touring. Since this major overhaul work, the XK has covered just 500 miles and only 5000 have been completed since the late 1980's 88,000 full restoration. CRC 919 is now in a position to be enjoyed andis offered onto the market in strong mechanical order. The XK 3.4 engine is superb with excellent compressions and oil pressure, it performs superbly and the correct four speed Moss gearbox is lovely to use. The XK handles, steers and brakes superbly and is driving beautifully. Almost 30 years on from completion of the rebuild, CRC 919 presents wonderfully and this is down to careful use, good storage and careful ownership. The Black paintwork gleams, the bodyshell is superb with excellent gaps and the chrome work is still of an excellent standard. The interior now has a nicely aged finish to it, the weather gear is in excellent order and the engine bay and boot area present exceptionally well. This is a beautifully prepared and presented UK XK120 and having had its recent program of work, its superbly well sorted and ready to use and enjoy. Price: 119,995
