Following the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Europes car industry was decimated. In Germany both Daimler and Benz went back to producing cars post-war, however, times were tough. A merger between Daimler and Benz would ensure that both companies survived and following a technical co-operation agreement in 1924, the companies formally merged on the 1st July 1926. Mercedes-Benz was born! Subsequently, Mercedes-Benz went on to build some of the greatest cars of all time. The cars from Stuttgart bearing the three-pointed star all had one thing in common . . . they were renowned for their technical innovation, build quality, luxury and performance. In 1951 Mercedes-Benz introduced the Type W187 220 Series cars, which was the first model to be powered by a six cylinder engine post World War II. This model was a great success and built in relatively big numbers. In the 1950s Mercedes-Benz produced one of the greatest cars of all time the iconic 300SL Gullwing and 300SL Roadster. Whilst fabulous sporting cars, they were very expensive and generally sold to the rich and famous. The Type W186 and Type W189 300 series four door luxury tourers were built alongside the Type W198 300SL Gullwing and Roadster and they were indeed fabulous cars in their own right, though still very expensive. Mercedes-Benz wanted to build full sized luxury cars that were more affordable than the Type W186 and Type W189 300 series cars, so the Ponton range of cars (Type W120/W121/W105/W180/W128) filled that void nicely. In 1959 Mercedes-Benz introduced the Type W111 as a successor to the very successful Ponton. The Type W111 was built as a sedan, coupe and convertible with many different engine configurations. The sedans were sold in big numbers all over the world, however, as has been the tradition with Mercedes-Benz the two door and convertible cars were built in far smaller numbers and carried a significant price premium. The majority of the Type W111 models were powered by a 6 cylinder engine of varying capacity, ranging from 2195cc (220 series) through to 2778cc (280 series). In 1969 Mercedes-Benz introduced a new 3499cc V8 engine which they fitted to the Type W111 coupes and cabriolets. The Type W111 was succeeded by the Type W116, built from 1972 through until 1980, which was formally recognised as the first series of S Class cars built. The Type W126 followed, which was the second series of S Class cars. The sedan was first introduced in 1979, followed by the coupe in 1981. As with past models, the Type W126 was offered with many different engine sizes and options. The top of the range flagship model was the 560 SEC, Type W126.045, which was built from 1985 through until 1991. Powered by a 5.5 litre V8 that puts out 221kw/300hp the car can reach 250km/h while acceleration from 0 -100 km/hr takes less than 7 seconds. It is probably the most comfortable way to travel across the country. In press material, Mercedes-Benz claimed that . . . even at 200km/h, you can talk in normal voice or listen to music without being disturbed by wind or road noise. The high-speed refinement and stability were hardly matched by other cars at the time, let alone one that offered space for four people. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale an Australian delivered, factory right hand drive 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC. The car has a build date of October 1988. When new, this car cost almost $250,000 including on road costs, making it one of the most expensive cars you could purchase back in 1988/1989. This car has its original book set with a data card and a substantial history file. All of the documentation on file confirms that this highly optioned car was sold new by Mercedes-Benz of Sydney on the 7th November 1989 to its first owner, a Mr Sutton from Berry in NSW. The car was first registered by Mercedes-Benz as PQX290 and changed to ABP17P for Mr Berry. The car was finished in almondine red (colour code 512) with a mushroom leather interior (trim code 265), which is an absolutely spectacular colour combination. The following option codes are noted on the data tag: 412 = electric tilting/sliding roof steel, 442 = airbag for driver, 581 = automatic climate control, 625 = Australia version and 809 = change of model year, last figure shows new model year. The following additional option codes are noted on the data card: 233 = fog lamp special wiring, 430 = rear head rests left & right, 524 = paint coat preservation, 581 = automatic climate control, 596 = infrared reflecting tinted glass, 601 = oil for limited slip rear axle, 613 = head-lamp unit asymmetrically for left-hand traffic, 664 = tyres 275/65 R17 with rims chromium-plated and 677 = battery for use in tropical countries, higher capacity. Sutton sold the car to its next owner in Melbourne in October 1998 at which time the odometer was circa 115,000 km. The car passed through two further careful owners before being acquired by the current owner in late 2016. The service book has been religiously completed, with the last entry on the 21st February 2009 at 200,103 km. There is a subsequent invoice on file dated 27th March 2010 at 216,336 km. The current owner is fastidious to say the least and in early 2017 the car was sent to classic Mercedes-Benz specialists MB Spares in Canberra. The brief was to go through the car to ensure everything was right and take an excellent car to the next level. There are invoices on file for in excess of $16,000. At that time the odometer was 226,122 km This car has been maintained by the Mercedes-Benz dealer network through until 1998 and subsequently by marque specialists, Classique Motors, Jason Purvis and MB Spares. Today this car presents and drives spectacularly well. It is hard to believe it is a 32 year old car and the odometer reads 226,641 km. You could time warp this car back to the Mercedes-Benz show room floor in 1988 and it would look right at home. In fact, it would not look out of place on the Mercedes-Benz showroom in 2021! The car was repainted in late 2007 and it still presents exceptionally well. There are a few very minor stone chips on the bonnet, but you have to look hard to see them! There is a small paint chip behind the right rear wheel arch, which is almost on the underside of the car and difficult to see. All of the external trim, chrome, glass and even the wheels are in excellent condition. The only exception is the front badge which is worn. Inside the cabin, the car presents magnificently. The leather is clean, fresh and supple. There are no rips, tears or even scuff marks . . . it is pretty much mint. The dash, instruments & controls and even the carpet are also in excellent condition. The timber, which is a real feature on these cars, is also excellent. Everything looks to be in working order, including the sunroof and the seat belt presenters, which was a technological innovation for 1988! The air conditioning system works well and it blows ice cold air. You open the bonnet to reveal an engine bay that presents consistently with the rest of the car. Everything is clean, neat and tidy. The boot is also in excellent condition. There is a spare wheel, tool kit, jack and safety triangle, all in excellent condition. The car starts easily at the turn of the key and even though there is a thumping V8 under the bonnet the engine is incredibly quiet. So how does it drive for a 32 year old car? Probably even better than it looks! It is just a superb car to drive and it does everything in that typical Mercedes-Benz Germanic way. It is comfortable and effortless to drive but if you have the need or are in the mood you have loads of performance on tap. Make no mistake this is a fast car . . . a real wolf in sheeps clothing. On the road the car tracks arrow straight, the brakes pull the car up as required and it handles superbly. The car is smooth and whisper quiet inside the cabin. The only anomaly we have identified is a clicking noise, which most likely emanates from the indicator stalk on the steering column, when you turn the steering wheel. Accompanying the car are two sets of keys, books (including a fully stamped service book) and a number of services receipts dating back to 2007. Sometimes it is hard to get a true representation on the condition of a car from photos, however, in this case we think a picture really does say 1,000 words! These cars were extremely well built, however, the overall condition and presentation of this car today are a credit to its current and previous owners. This car has lived a cherished life and it has clearly been impeccably cared for and maintained. This Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC will suit a true Mercedes-Benz collector or enthusiast. It would be very hard to find a better example and it could be a serious concours contender. This car is one out of the box! Highlights: - An Australian delivered, factory right hand drive example finished in a stunning colour scheme. - Matching numbers, as confirmed by the service book and factory data card. - Impeccably maintained from new. - Full service history with books, tools and more. - Just a beautifully presented motor car that is magnificent to drive. - The best of the best. Price $74,950.

Apple, Coco-Cola, McDonalds and Nike are brands recognisable the world over. So is Ferrari and interestingly the iconic Italian luxury sports car manufacturer was named The Worlds Strongest Brand in the 2019 Brand Finance Global 500 Report. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1939 out of Alfa Romeos race division as Auto Avio Costruzioni the company built its first car in 1940. The Second World War halted Ferraris dream, which was finally realised in 1947, when the first car bearing his name, the Ferrari 125 S, was built. From that day on Ferrari race cars dominated the world over, winning race after race and many world championships in Formula One, sports car racing and endurance racing. Ferrari built exclusive sports cars for the road too, but in the early days, this was primarily to fund his motor racing! The Cavallino Rampate or prancing horse was the symbol chosen by Ferrari and like the golden arches it is recognised by just about every man, woman and child on the planet! The Ferrari road cars from the 1940s and early to mid-1950s were built in very small numbers and it was not until the introduction of the 250 series cars that production numbers increased. Almost 1,000 Ferrari 250 GTEs were built from 1959 1963. The 250 series also produced some of the most special Ferraris ever built, including the Ferrari 250 LM, 250 SWB, 250 California Spider and of course the 250 GTO. The 250 series cars were superseded by the 275 series cars, the 330 series cars and later the 365 series cars. The nomenclature designated the cubic capacity of each cylinder. So a Ferrari 330 was powered by a 12 cylinder engine of 3967cc capacity. Ferraris iconic Dino was first shown to the world as a prototype at the 1965 Paris Motor Show. The car morphed into the 206 GT of which only 150 cars were built from 1967 to 1969. In 1969 the 246 GT was released, which whilst a similar looking car in many ways was actually quite different. The car sat 3 taller than its predecessor and the body was nowbuilt from steel. Mechanically the new car was powered by a 2418cc V6 engine. Enzo was keen to tackle Porsche head on and to do this he needed to increase production. The Dino was a hit and circa 4,000 of these cars (both the 246 GT and 246 GTS) were built from 1969 to 1974. The Ferrari 308 GTB was introduced at the 1975 Paris Motor Show, essentially to replace the 246 Dino GT. The car was designed to fit between the top of the range 365 GT/4 Berlinetta Boxer and 2+2 308 GT/4. The car was released to critical acclaim and its sweeping Pininfarina design was admired by everyone who laid eyes on it. Originally the car was manufactured with a glass reinforced plastic (fibreglass) body to keep the weight down and it was powered by a three litre V8 engine with a dry sump. Only circa 800 fibreglass cars were built before Ferrari reverted to a more conventional steel body construction in 1977. Most markets also reverted to having a wet sump engine. In 1977 Ferrari introduced the 308 GTS, which was essentially the same car with a targa roof. The car was made famous through its appearance on the TV show Magnum PI. The model evolved into the 308 GTBi / 308 GTSi in 1980 when Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection replaced the traditional Weber carburettors. Two years later thefour valves per cylinder Quattrovalvole or QV was introduced. The 308 was an incredible success and circa 12,000 cars were built from 1975 to 1985 before the 328 was introduced. The 328 GTB / GTS was essentially an updated version of the 308 with the same engine as its predecessor, but with an increased capacity of 3185 cc. The styling remained similar though its overall profile was somewhat softer and the car featured colour coded front and rear bumpers. By mid-1988 ABS brakes were available and these cars were fitted with convex shaped wheels. Interestingly 328 GTS production out numbered 328 GTB production by a factor of five to one. Oldtimer Australia has on offer a 1986 Ferrari 328 GTS. This particular car is an Australian delivered factory right hand drive example (compliance plate dated 10/87) that was sold new by Ferrari Adelaide. It is understood that the car was registered in South Australia as PDO 474 and it remained with its first owner through until the mid 1990s. It was then sold through Prestige Formula in Adelaide to its next owner in Victoria who enjoyed the 328 for some ten years. The Healey Factory in Melbourne then sold the car in the mid 2000s to a Victorian enthusiast with an extensive private collection. In 2017 this car was offered for sale at Shannons Melbourne Spring auction where it was purchased by the current owner, joining an eclectic collection of cars. In early 2019 this Ferrari 328 GTS was treated to a bare metal repaint by Brisbane based classic car specialists GT Motors. The car was repainted in its original colour of rosso corsa FER 300/9 as confirmed by the original paint sticker on the car. Today this Ferrari 328 GTS presents and drives exceptionally well. Given the recent repaint, the car makes a strong impression cosmetically. The paint is immaculate and you have to look hard to find any blemishes. The body is straight and the panel is excellent. All of the external trim, lenses, glass and the wheels are in very good condition and compliment the paintwork perfectly. You will note from the photos the colour coded targa top, which we think suits the car perfectly. You open the door on this car to reveal an interior that presents exceptionally well. The leather is clean, with no rips, tears or split stitching. The dash, door cards/pockets, steering wheel, instruments and controls are in excellent condition. The only exception, is there are two small holes in the centre console where at some stage a mobile phone is likely to have been mounted. To be picky, the ash tray (unused) cover needs a repaint, some of the rubbers (whilst serviceable) are just starting to show their age and a few of the instruments are slightly faded. The carpet is in very good condition. The engine bay is impressively clean and is also unmodified in appearance. The boot is clean and tidy though the zipper for the rear boot cover is broken. The front compartment is similarly clean with the often damaged plastic moulding is in good condition and the spare wheel present. As with any Ferrari it is all about the drive. This 328 GTS starts at the first turn of the key. The car goes through its warm up routine and then its time to hit the road. First impressions are really positive. The engine sounds on song and it has a terrific exhaust note. It pulls strongly through the rev range and the car gearbox is good. The brakes are effective and pull the car up in a straight line. The suspension is tight and the car handles well, with a compactness that is missing from later model and larger Ferraris. The car does everything you would expect. The seating position in a 328 is excellent, the car is comfortable and a sorted example can easily be used as a daily driver. These cars are best described as a genuinely usable classic car! It hard to believe this example is almost 35 years old! This car was last serviced by Brisbane based Ferrari specialists, Automotion, back in October 2017. At that time the odometer was 77,327km. Today the odometer reads 81,953km. The car has a tool kit, jack kit and books, though the original service book has been misplaced. A replacement book is currently being sourced through Ferrari. Highlights: - An Australian delivered, factory RHD example. - Recent bare metal repaint by GT Motors in Brisbane. - Finished in its original colour scheme of rosso corsa with a beige interior. - This car presents and drives beautifully. - Accompanied by books, tools and a jack kit. - The car is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. Price: AUD $209,950.

The Swallow Sidecar Company was founded in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley. In 1934 Lyons formed SS Cars Limited to effectively take over the operation from Walmsley. The SS brand was quite successful; though they had a reputation for having more show than go. The Jaguar name first appeared as a model name on an SS 2½ Litre Sports Saloon introduced in 1936. For political reasons, Lyons changed the name of his company to Jaguar Cars in 1945. Whilst the SS100 is indeed a fabulous car, it was the launch of the legendary Jaguar XK120 at the London Motor Show in 1948 that really put Jaguar on the map. The car caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The 120 in its name referred to its 120 mph top speed, which made the XK120 the worlds fastest production car in its day. It was available in two open versions, first as the roadster (designated OTS, for open two-seater), then also as a drophead coupe (DHC) from 1953. The car was also available as a closed or fixed head coupe (FHC) from 1951. The XK120 was succeeded by the XK140 which was launched in late 1954 and sold through until 1957. Whilst the XK140 looked similar to the XK120 there were in fact many subtle and indeed important differences. The XK140 featured a more spacious cabin and had improved brakes, suspension and steering. Visually the car had American style bumpers with overriders, a different grille (that had fewer, thicker vertical bars), a chrome strip on the bonnet & boot and an emblem Jaguar Winner Le Mans 1951-3 on the boot. The final iteration of the XK was the XK150 that was released in 1957. Whilst its family resemblance to its forbearers is obvious the XK150 was in fact a very different car. Most noticeable was the change to a one piece windscreen and the smoother wing line from the front to the rear of the car. Cabin space was significantly improved making the XK150 a far more comfortable car to drive. Mechanically the first XK150s were similar to the XK140s, however, an SE variant with a modified cylinder head giving more power and an S variant with triple SU carburettors giving even more power were soon available. In 1959 engine capacity was increased from 3.4 litres to 3.8 litres. Like the XK120 both the XK140 and XK150 were offered in three body styles being the roadster, drophead coupe and fixed head coupe. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1956 Jaguar XK140 SE Fixed Head Coupe. This car is fitted with the factory C-Type cylinder head as confirmed by the S suffix on the engine number. It is confirmed as having matching numbers chassis, engine (block and cylinder head) and body numbers. This particular car is a UK delivered, factory right hand drive example. According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate on file this particular car was completed on the 30th April 1956 and despatched on the 16th May 1956 through Henleys in London. It was delivered to Naomi Cotton from Bournemouth who first registered the car as NC140. Interestingly, our research shows that in 1957 she bought an XK150 SE FHC 3.4 and transferred the registration of NC140 to that car. Then in 1960 she purchased an Aston Martin DB4. She must have been quite a wealthy lady! The XK140 was originally finished in British racing green with a biscuit piped suede green interior. The heritage certificate also specifies this car was delivered with a 4-speed manual close ratio gearbox with overdrive. Not much more is known about the early history of the car. From the UK Vehicle Registration Document (V5) we do know the car only had two registered owners in the UK from 1984 until when the current owner purchased the car in the UK in July 2001. He purchased the car from Chapel End Cars at Nuneaton and subsequently imported it into Australia. There is an Import Approval on file dated 15th August 2001. When the car arrived in Australia it was in a fairly poor condition. The owner contacted Jaguar specialist Mike Roddy Motors in Melbourne to discuss options for restoring the car. In the end he decided to do it properly and embarked on a frame off restoration. Mike Roddy disassembled the car and took care of all the mechanicals. The body work and painting were entrusted to Peter Denny at Stylerod Panels in Kilsyth, Victoria. All chrome work was done by Classic Chrome in Geelong. The owner sourced a lot of new parts from well known Jaguar part suppliers like Guy Broad in the UK, XK Unlimited in the US and Jagdaim in Melbourne. All in all, it took over 10 years to complete the project. Once completed the car was stunning, however, it is great to see it did not become a trailer queen! Yes this car was pampered but it was also used and enjoyed and it has travelled some 12,000 miles since it was restored. The car was restored as original except for the addition of a cooling system header tank andthermal fan which more than copes with the Australian summer. The globes in the tail lights have been replaced with LED boards, imported from the USA, so they are now highly visible even in direct sunlight. It also has a stainless steel exhaust system with the mufflers an exact copy of the originals. Today the car presents and drives superbly. The exterior presents exceptionally well and the interior still presents like new. The paintwork is excellent and it still has a good depth of colour and a high gloss finish. There are a few very minor blemishes here and there, but were being fussy! All the external trim and the chrome work are in good condition, as is all the glass. The wire wheels are a feature and all in good condition on this car. The car is fitted with Kuhmo P215/70R16 radial tyres all round. The interior of this car is just stunning. The leather remains soft and supple and in excellent condition, belying the 12,000 miles travelled since the restoration was completed. The timber work is lovely and even the carpets are in excellent unmarked condition. All of the instruments and controls present well and are in working order. Purists will note the bank of non original switches to the right of the steering column which operate the windscreen washers, thermos fan, overdrive, horn, drivelights and choke. So how does this Jaguar XK140 perform out on the road? Time to find out . . . turn on the ignition check, flick the switch for the choke check, wait a few seconds for the fuel pump to feed some fuel in the carburettors check . . . the car starts easily at the first push of the starter button. Once you have started the car it only needs the choke for a few more seconds before you can turn it off and the car will settle into an easy idle. The 3.4 litre engine in this XK140 is incredibly smooth. That said, once you blip the throttle the car has an edge and you can feel that it just begs to be driven. So lets go! Out on the open road this car is just a delight to drive and it has a real presence about it. As noted above, the engine is smooth, so too are gear changes (yes it still has its original Moss box!) and there are no nasty rattles or squeaks to be heard. Everything looks to be in working order and this car is one of the best driving XKs we have experienced. The restoration has stood the test of time which is a credit to Mike Roddy and his team and of course its current owner. Accompanying the car is a Heritage Certificate, an excellent history file, restoration receipts & photos, an owners manual, parts manual and other miscellaneous documentation. There is also a spare wheel, jacking tools and grease gun, which are all as new in the boot. This Jaguar XK140 SE Fixed Head Coupes current mature owner has made the difficult decision to sell. Therefore, the car is now looking for its next custodian. Highlights: * A factory right hand drive, fully matching numbers example. * Desirable SE specification XK140 with the C-type cylinder head. * Full frame off restoration by Jaguar Specialist Mike Roddy Motors. * Just a wonderful car that still presents and drives exceptionally well. There are XKs and there are XKs . . . this car is one of the best! Price $199,950.

Ferrari built exclusive sports cars for the road too, but in the early days, this was primarily to fund his motor racing! The Cavallino Rampate or prancing horse was the symbol chosen by Ferrari and like the golden arches it is recognised by just about every man, woman and child on the planet! The Ferrari road cars built in the 1940s and early to mid-1950s were produced in very small numbers and it was not until the introduction of the 250 Series cars that production numbers increased. Almost 1,000 Ferrari 250 GTEs were built from 1959 1963. The 250 Series also contained some of the most special Ferraris ever built, including the Ferrari 250LM, 250 SWB, 250 California Spider and of course the 250 GTO. The 250 Series cars were superseded by the 275 Series cars, the 330 Series cars and later the 365 Series cars. The nomenclature designated the cubic capacity of each cylinder. So a Ferrari 275 GTB was powered by a 12 cylinder engine of 3300cc capacity. The late 1960s and early 1970s were a fabulous time for Ferrari. Its flagship 365 GTB/4 Daytona was a resounding success and Enzos big risk the Dino 246 was also selling very well. At that time Ferrari wanted to continue with his tradition of producing high performance Grand Touring cars with a 2+2 configuration and the 365 GTC/4, which was a successor to the 365 GT 2+2 and the 365 GTC, filled that niche. The early 1970s were a time of innovation and Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati et al. continued to introduce new models in an endeavour to trump the other. The 365 GTC/4 was only in production in 1971 & 1972 and its successor the 365 GT/4 2+2 was first shown in October 1972 at the Paris Motor Show. This car, designed and built by Pininfarina, featured unique styling and whilst the sharp angular lines were very new for Ferrari it did share the characteristic design feature of a swage line dividing the body into an upper and a lower half with the 365 GTB/4 Daytona. Unlike the GTC/4 the GT/4 2+2 couldseat four people in relative comfort. Mechanically the 365 GT/4 2+2 was almost identical to the 365 GTC/4 and its 4390 cc quad cam V12 engine with six Weber 38DCOE side draught carburettors put out an impressive 320 bhp and was capable of propelling the car from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/hr) in a healthy 6.4 seconds and a top speed in excess of 150 mph (250 km/hr). In period the car was well regarded though the oil crisis of the 1970s made the car somewhat difficult to sell and only 524 examples were built from 1973 to 1976. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale this 1974 Ferrari 365 GT/4 2+2. This particular car is an Australian delivered, factory right-hand drive example that was delivered new through WH Lowe Pty Ltd. The car was originally finished in oro kelso (gold) with a pelle beige interior. The car has a factory delivery date of April 1974. The Australian compliance plate is dated 10/74. The car is understood to have been sold new into Townsville, in north Queensland. Its subsequent history is known as this car has been in Queensland its entire life. The second owner was a Brisbane based lawyer and car guy who owned this 365 GT/4 2+2 through until 1986. The car was then purchased by people well known in the Ferrari Club and the car remained in their ownership through until 2006. Its fourth owner kept the car until 2014 and it was then sold through the Brisbane Ferrari dealer at the time, Euromarque, to its current owner. It is not known exactly when the car was repainted red, but it was most likely done in the early 1980s. The car has clearly been very well maintained throughout its life and it presents in excellent all round condition today. The car had a major engine rebuild in 2006. The engine has been re-bored, new pistons fitted, new valves & guides fitted, balanced and reassembled. This work was carried out at 98,000 miles. Additional work completed at the time included: replaced engine mounts, new clutch, gearbox overhauled, front shocks refurbished, front & rear rotors fitted along with pads. The car was sparingly used from 2006 through until 2014 and it suffered through lack of use. The car had developed a number of oil leaks as a result of gaskets and seals drying out. As a condition of purchase by the current owner in 2014 a number of items required attending to. The work done at this time included an engine out tidy up, with a number of gaskets and seals replaced. Additionally, the steering pump was overhauled, new engine mounts were fitted, the exhaust hangers replaced, the sway bar bushes & front lower shock bushes were replaced, the oil temperature sender was replaced, the car had all its fluids changed and a new battery fitted. All the work was completed by Euromarque. Oldtimer Australia has had the privilege of selling a number of Ferrari 365 GT/4 2+2s and this car is another good one. This is just a beautifully presented and driving car. Whilst the car carries an older repaint, it still retains a great depth of colour and high gloss. There are some very minor stone chips, imperfections and small cracks in the paint, but you have to look hard. All of the exterior trim, lenses, chrome work, bumpers (which are original and have been restored) and the glass are also in good condition. This 365 has obviously been very well cared for throughout its life, evidenced by the condition of the interior of the car which looks to be original. The cabin is just a lovely place to be, presenting with just the right amount of patina. There are a few small splits starting to appear on the front seats and this job was next on the owners to do list. The dash, instruments & controls, steering wheel and timber veneer are all in good condition. This car retains an electronic versionof the original Becker Mexico radio (with an iPhone connection) which is a nice touch. The heart of any Ferrari is under the bonnet and the engine bay is just about as good as it gets on this car. The cars current owner can only be described as fastidious and he has painstakingly restored the engine bay to as close to how it was when the car rolled off the production line in Maranello all those years ago. The work carried out in the engine bay included: carburettors overhauled and restored to as built condition, the distributors were overhauled to as new condition and re-mapped, the distributor gear drives overhauled and restored, correct HT leads and lead brackets fitted, acorn nuts for the cam covers and correct metric fasteners fitted where required and the crackle finish was restored on the cam covers, air filter boxes, condensate canister and steel tubes. Everything is like new. Make no mistake this car is not just about the show! Whilst this car looks the goods it really gets exciting when you slip in behind the wheel . . . it has plenty of go! Prime the Webers, turn the key and the 4.4 litre V12 engine bursts into life. It starts easily and idles smoothly from the get-go. Buckle up and away you go . . . on the move, you realise that the car is really tight on the road with no rattles or squeaks. Like all Ferraris, it gets better and better as it warms up. It steers, handles and stops as you would expect. The gearbox is firm and the synchros are good, including second, even when cold. This car has power on tap in spades! The big V12 revs willingly and the car pulls strongly through the rev range. The oil pressure is good and the engine sounds just right. The air conditioning works and the car is fitted with period-correct Michelin XWX radial tyres and correct Koni shock absorbers, including the often replaced load levellers. The cars third and very long term owner has confirmed that the current mileage of 114,310 miles would be genuine. In almost six years of ownership this Ferrari 365 GT/4 2+2 has travelled only 5,500 miles. It is regularly seen at Ferrari Club events, various Cars & Coffee events as well as other car shows. This car was the recipient of a Gold Award at the last Ferrari Concours dElegance held in Brisbane. This Ferrari 365 GT/4 2+2 ticks all the boxes. Highlights: - an Australian delivered, factory RHD example. - finished in a popular colour scheme of red with a beige interior. - this is a well sorted example that is ready to be used and enjoyed. - it has Ferrari Classiche certification, books, known history from new, a history file - dating back to 1994, a diary on the car from 2014 and a correct jack kit. The Ferrari 365 GT/4 2+2 has to be the last of the relatively affordable classic front engined V12 Ferraris and this example now needs a new owner to use and enjoy it! Price $155,000.

The Swallow Sidecar Company was founded in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley. In 1934 Lyons formed SS Cars Limited to effectively take over the operation from Walmsley. The SS brand was quite successful; though they had a reputation for having more show than go. The Jaguar name first appeared as a model name on an SS 2½ Litre Sports Saloon introduced in 1936. For political reasons, Lyons changed the name of his company to Jaguar Cars in 1945. Whilst the SS100 is indeed a fabulous car, it was the launch of the legendary Jaguar XK120 at the London Motor Show in 1948 that really put Jaguar on the map. The car caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The XK120 morphed into the XK140 and ultimately the XK150 and in total, just over 30,000 cars were built over fifteen years of production. Jaguar introduced the E-Type at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, which like the XK120 all those years ago, took the motoring world by storm. The body styling was simply gorgeous, technologically the E-Type was an engineering masterpiece and it set new standards in all areas. Whilst automotive styling is somewhat subjective the E-Type is often ranked atop lists of the most beautiful cars and in fact, it has been described by Enzo Ferrari as the most beautiful car ever made. Jaguar could build sports cars but they were also very successful at building sports saloons. In 1955 the Jaguar Mk1 was introduced to fill a gap in the model range of a small to medium sized luxury saloon. Initially introduced with a 2.4 litre 6 cylinder engine and later a 3.4 litre 6 cylinder engine this model was very successful with some 38,000 examples sold between 1955 and 1959. In 1959 the Mk2 was introduced and whilst visually similar at first glance the new car had many improvements over its predecessor. In addition to the 2.4 litre and 3.4 litre engines the Mk2 was also offered with a 3.8 litre engine as used in the E-Type. Just over 80,000 Mk2s were built from 1959 to 1967. The Mk2 was to be replaced by the XJ6, however, delays with this car resulted in Jaguar producing another series of the Mk2 which was designated as the 240 and 340 to fall into line with the nomenclature used with other models on offer at the time, specifically the 420. The 240 and 340 were built from 1967 to 1969 andalmost 4,500 and 2,800 respectively of each model were built. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1960 Jaguar Mk2 3.4 Litre Sports Saloon. This car has the desirable manual gearbox with overdrive. We love cars that have a documented and interesting history and this Jaguar Mk2 has an incredible history file and an absolutely fascinating history. The cars first owner was Mr C.S.C. Wickens who was a senior executive with Shell International Petroleum Company Ltd. There is lots of early documentation on file, including the original purchase order from Shell International Petroleum Company Ltd, dated 18th March 1960 which specifies the car as follows: Jaguar MK2, 3.4 litre, 4 door, 6 cylinder, saloon, right-hand drive, sherwood green with tan interior, export model, fitted with manual gearbox with Laycock deNormanville overdrive. Extras: 23 GRB radio to cover medium and short wave band, registration in the name of C.S.C. Wickens, supplying and fitting number plates, handling and delivery via London on the 28th November 1960. The Jaguar Mk2 was heading to Nigeria as the order specified this as the destination for the car. The order was changed at the eleventh hour as Mr Wickens must have received a transfer to a new posting in the Netherlands. The order was changed to a left hand drive car, with a scheduled delivery for the 1st December 1960. The original delivery invoice on file confirms the car was delivered to Shell International Petroleum Company Ltd for Mr C.S.C Wickens, tax free, on the 2nd December 1960. The invoice notes a radio (230RB) was supplied and fitted. On delivery the car was registered in the UK as 7629DU. The first service was carried out by Henlys in London on the 28th February 1961 at 1,473 km. Mr Wickens moved to the Netherlands in 1961 and took the car with him. The car was registered in the Netherlands as GK-09-48. Whilst in the Netherlands the car was regularly serviced by N.V J.W Lagerwu (Jaguar dealer and importer). The last service was carried out on the 9th February 1965 at 23,585 km. In 1965 Mr. Wickens moved to Australia. He returned his beloved Jaguar back to Coventry on the 1st March 1965 to be converted to right hand drive. At the time the car was thoroughly checked over, serviced and the speedo was changed to miles per hour in preparation for shipping in March/April 1965. There is correspondence on file between Jaguar and Mr. Wickens fully documenting this. The car was sent to Melbourne and collected by Brysons and registered in Victoria as JGD 600. The cars first service in Australia was at Brysons on the 20th December 1965 at 3,510 miles. In May 1978 Mr Wickens transferred to Brisbane and the car was registered in Queensland as 308 NFZ. There are three service books with this car. The last entry in the third service book is on the 5th November 1980 at 58,847 miles. In March 1983, at around 80,000 miles, the engine was completely overhauled. The last records of Mr Wickens ownership are a Queensland certificate of registration dated 31st May 1987 and a subsequent service invoice dated October 1987. The car found its way to the Gold Coast and remained with another long term owner until being acquired by the current owner in 2014. By this time the car had been off the road for many years, patiently waiting to be restored. Prior to changing hands the car had been given a bare metal respray, however, its then owners failing health stalled the project. Over a four year period the car was restored. The restoration included a bare metal repaint in old English white, the trim was completely re-upholstered in red leather, new carpets were fitted, a new hood lining was fitted, all the timber was refurbished with Burr Walnut all from the same tree, most of the brightwork was rechromed, insulation/sound deadening material was installed, new tyres were fitted, the brakes were overhauled, power steering was fitted and more. The end result is a beautifully presented Jaguar Mk2 3.4 Litre Sports Saloon that is just a delight to drive. The old English paint work is fresh and vibrant with only a small number of imperfections and blemishes evident. The majority of the chrome work is excellent, though it is obvious that the door handles are original and were not rechromed as part of the restoration. Both right hand side door handles show some light pitting. The glass, rubbers, lenses and wheels are all in very good condition. It should be noted there is a small scratch on the left hand side of the rear screen. Whilst wire wheels look great on a Jaguar Mk2, we really love the traditional look of this car with its original steel wheels and hub caps. Inside, the cabin of this Jaguar Mk2 is just a lovely place to be. Everything smells and feels fresh. And so it should as everything is essentially new. Its hard to fault. Importantly all of the instruments and controls are in working order, including the overdrive which cuts in and out at the flick of the switch. The engine bay and boot present very cleanly, consistent with the overall condition of the car. The owner recently drove the car 300 kms from his home to us in Brisbane and it did not miss a beat. Not surprisingly the car performed exceptionally well on our recent test drive. There is an electric choke installed which is operated by a button under the dash. It is required for a cold start but can be switched off pretty much straight away. It should be noted that car has been fitted with an auxiliary cooling fan operated by a button adjacent to the choke. Out on the open road this car drives really well. The engine has travelled less than 10,000 miles since it was rebuilt and it is still strong. As with all old Jaguars with a Moss gearbox you have to be considered with the gear changes and mindful that there is no synchromesh on first gear. You are back in the saddle pretty quickly and just enjoy the drive. The car steers, handles and stops as one would expect. Accompanying the car is its original book set with three service books, workshop manual, spare parts catalogue, incredible history file through to the mid 1980s, tool kit, jack and a spare wheel. There is also a Shell key ring which we understand dates back to circa 1960, which is a nice touch given this history of the car. Today the odometer reads 89,649 miles. As noted previously, the car had a speedo/odometer change in 1965, so in total the car has travelled a documented 89,649 miles plus 23,585 km. Highlights: - an export market car that was converted by Jaguar in Coventry to right hand drive in 1965. - one of the most desirable specifications for a Jaguar Mk2, having the 3.4 litre engine mated to a manual gearbox with overdrive. - matching numbers chassis and engine. - a fascinating history with an incredible history file through to the mid 1980s. - recently restored and now ready to enjoy. - a great looking car with a real presence on the road. This 1960 Jaguar Mk2 3.4 Litre Sports Saloon with a manual gearbox and overdrive will be a great addition to a Jaguar collection or perhaps a fabulous entry level classic car. Price - $72,500.
