If Coys has reasonable cause for believing that the Seller is in breach of any one or more of the warranties set out in this Condition 7, Coys may by giving notice in writing to the Seller decline to sell the Lot, and the Seller shall be liable to Coys as though the Seller had withdrawn the lot from sale without Coys consent.

8. VEHICLE REGISTRATION NUMBERS 8.1. If the Seller wishes to sell any Motor Vehicle but to retain the right to the registration number of the Vehicle (“VRN”) , it is the Seller’s responsibility to notify Coys in writing either on the Auction Entry Form or sooner. 8.2. It shall be the Seller’s responsibility to take all necessary steps to ensure that the current VRN is reserved and that a new number is allocated prior to the Motor Vehicle being sold at the Auction and if he does not do so, Coys shall not be responsible for any loss or damage whatsoever and howsoever arising (including for the avoidance of doubt arising out of Coys’ negligence) out of the Seller’s loss of the right to the VRN following the sale of the Vehicle. 8.3. Coys may, at its own discretion, (without any assumption of responsibility or duty towards the Seller or the Buyer) take such steps to facilitate the reservation or transfer of any particular registration number as it thinks fit in order to assist the Seller or Buyer but strictly on condition that no claim attaches to Coys for taking any such steps whether arising out of Coys’ negligence or any other cause whatsoever. 9. RESERVES 9.1. The Seller may place a reserve price (“Reserve”) on any Lot prior to the Auction and once placed by the Seller, it may not be changed without the written consent of Coys. All Lots will be sold without Reserve unless a Reserve has been agreed by Coys in writing. 9.2. Where a Reserve has been agreed, only Coys may bid on behalf of the Seller. If the Seller makes such bid, then the Auctioneer may knock the Lot down to the Seller without observing any Reserve and the Seller shall pay to Coys the Buyer’s Premium in addition to the Seller’s Commission and Expenses. 9.3. Where a Reserve is agreed, Coys may in its sole discretion sell a Lot for less than the Reserve but shall account to the Seller as if the Lot had been sold for the Reserve. 9.4. Where no Reserve has been placed, the Seller may bid either personally or through the agency of any person. 9.5. If no Reserve has been placed on a Lot, Coys shall not be held liable should the Lot be purchased for a price below any lowest estimated selling price of the Lot given in any Catalogue, save insofar as and limited to the extent that the same arises out of the actual fault or negligence of Coys. 10. COMMISSION AND EXPENSES 10.1. The parties hereby acknowledge that Coys shall be entitled to deduct from the Hammer Price a Seller’s Commission of 10% plus VAT (or, in the case of automobilia, 15% plus VAT) or such other sum agreed by Coys in writing, plus any Expenses, and any other sums due from the Seller to Coys. 10.2. The Buyer shall pay (and the Seller acknowledges Coys’ entitlement to) a Buyer’s Premium equal to 15% of the first £50,000 or €50,000 of the Hammer Price, and 12.5% upon such of the Hammer Price as exceeds £50,000 or €50,000, plus VAT. 11. PHOTOGRAPHY AND ILLUSTRATIONS The Seller permits Coys without payment to photograph and make illustrations of any Lot and to use at its discretion any photograph or illustration of or in respect of a Lot supplied by the Seller, whether or not in conjunction with the Auction. The copyright in all photographs taken and illustrations made of any Lot by or on behalf of Coys shall be the absolute property of Coys. 12. COYS’ ESTIMATES AND DESCRIPTIONS 12.1. Coys make no warranty or representation as to the anticipated or likely selling price of any Lot. Any estimate given by Coys, whether written or oral and whether or not printed in any Catalogue for the Auction, as to the estimated selling price of any Lot is a statement of opinion only and may be subject to revision from time to time at Coys’ sole discretion and should not be relied upon as an indication of the actual selling price. 12.2. Coys shall not be liable to the Seller for any error or mis-statement in or omission from the description of any Lot in any Catalogue where:(a) Coys have been provided with such description by the Seller or any person on his behalf; or (b) Coys have provided the Seller with a copy of such description prior to publication of the
Catalogue and neither the Seller nor any person on his behalf have notified Coys in writing within seven days of any error or mis-statement in or omission from the description. 12.3. Any Motor Vehicle is sold as a collector’s item and not as a means of transport. Buyers are specifically warned that any vehicle sold as such may well have had parts replaced and paint renewed or be made up of parts from other vehicles the condition of which may be difficult to establish. Coys has to rely on information as to date, condition authenticity, maintenance, repairs and restoration provided by Sellers and does not, and cannot, undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lots to establish whether the vehicle or other Lot conforms with the description in the catalogue. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to carry out such inspection as he thinks necessary. Unless a vehicle is described as wholly original, the Buyer may not assume that all or any part of it is original. 12.4. No warranty is given by Coys as to the accuracy of the description of any Lot in any Catalogue or as to the age, authenticity, suitability, provenance, attribution, origin, condition, fitness for purpose, merchantable or satisfactory quality of any Lot or roadworthiness of any Motor Vehicle, and any warranties or conditions that would otherwise be implied by the Sale of Goods Act 1979 in relation to the foregoing are hereby expressly excluded. 12.5. Coys has no duty to the Seller to investigate the accuracy of the description of any Lot provided by or on behalf of the Seller. 13. WITHDRAWAL OF LOTS 13.1. The Seller may by notice in writing to Coys withdraw the Lot from the Auction. In the event of such withdrawal, the Seller shall within 14 days of withdrawal pay Coys the sums set out in this Condition 13. All such sums shall be payable to Coys as remuneration for the services performed by Coys down to the date of withdrawal, and not by way of penalty or liquidated damages. 13.2 In all cases of withdrawal, including under 7.5 above, the Seller shall be liable to pay Coys 10% of the estimated value of the Lot, notwithstanding that commission of a lesser, or no, amount had previously been agreed, to reflect the time, effort, loss of publicity and buyer’s premium suffered by Coys. The estimated value shall be the higher of:(a) The Seller’s estimate of value as previously notified to Coys or, if more than one figure, the highest figure or if none; (b) The value estimated in the Catalogue, or if more than one figure is given, the highest figure; (c) If none of the above apply such figure as Coys shall reasonably estimate as the value. (d) Plus in each case VAT on such fee and Expenses. 13.3. In the event that the Lot is withdrawn from the Auction after the publication of the Auction catalogue, the Seller shall in addition to the sum set out in Condition 13.2, be liable to pay Coys a further sum equal to the Buyer’s Premium (as defined in Condition 10.2 above) that would have been payable upon the Lot realising the aforesaid estimated value at Auction, plus VAT. 13.4. In the event that the Seller withdraws the Lot from the Auction, the Seller shall arrange for collection and removal of the Lot at his own expense within two working days after the date of withdrawal provided that the Seller may not collect the Lot unless and until any withdrawal fee payable under Conditions 13.2 and 13.3 shall have been paid in full. 14. UNSOLD LOTS 14.1 Where any Lot fails to sell at the Auction, Coys will have the sole and exclusive right to sell the Lot by private treaty within 14 days of the Auction date. These terms and conditions (including, for the avoidance of doubt, Condition 9 as to Reserves) shall govern any such sale by private treaty. 14.2. Unless Coys elects to sell the Lot by private treaty in accordance with Clause 14.1, the Seller shall arrange for the removal of any unsold Lot by 1.00 pm the day following the Auction or by such other time as agreed by Coys. 14.3. Failure to remove any unsold Lot pursuant to Condition 14.2 above will entitle Coys to charge the Seller a reasonable storage charge per day. The Seller shall further reimburse Coys for
any reasonable removal, insurance and other expenses. 14.4. If within 28 days after the Auction the Seller fails to give instructions to Coys regarding the disposal of the Lot, Coys shall have the exclusive right at its election to: (a) sell the Lot by private treaty, or (b) by Auction without Reserve, in either case in accordance with these Conditions. In such case, Coys shall be entitled to deduct from any sale price all sums owing to Coys including the Seller’s Commission and any charges incurred under this Condition 14. 15. RISK AND INSURANCE 15.1 The Lot shall at all times remain at the risk of the Seller until ownership of the Lot passes from the Seller to the Buyer under these Conditions. At no time shall ownership of the Lot pass to Coys other than in accordance with clause 21.4(e)(iii). 15.2 Until such time as risk passes to the Buyer in accordance with Condition 18, responsibility for arranging insurance for the Lot shall remain with the Seller, whereupon it shall pass to the Buyer. In no case shall Coys undertake responsibility for arranging insurance. 15.3. Coys will not be liable for any injury, loss or damage caused by any Lot unless caused by the negligence of Coys, its employees or agents in the ordinary course of their duties to Coys or by the Seller’s negligence or other breach of the Conditions. The Seller or the Buyer (as appropriate) shall compensate Coys in full in respect of all claims and proceedings brought against Coys in respect of injury, loss or damage caused by the Seller’s or Buyer’s (as appropriate) negligence or breach of any obligation under the Conditions. 16. THE BUYER 16.1. The Buyer shall be the highest bidder at the Auction. The Buyer’s bid shall form the basis of the Hammer Price. Any dispute as to any bid shall be settled by the Auctioneer at his absolute discretion. 16.2. Every bidder shall be deemed to act as principal unless prior to the commencement of the Auction there is a written acceptance by Coys that a bidder acts as agent on behalf of the named principal, and that its principal has agreed to and/ or is bound by these Conditions; in which case he shall be jointly liable with the principal by these Conditions. 16.3. No person shall be entitled to bid at the Auction without first having completed and delivered to Coys a bidder’s registration form and bidders attention is drawn to the information in the Catalogue under the heading “General Information”. 17. ABSENTEE BIDS Whilst the interest of prospective Buyers are best served by attendance at the Auction, Coys will if so instructed execute bids on behalf of prospective bidders.

SALE 18.1. A contract of sale is made between the Seller and the Buyer on the acceptance of a bid by the fall of the Auctioneer’s hammer. Coys is not a party to the contract of sale and has no liability for any act or default by the Seller or the Buyer. 18.2. The Buyer shall :(a) Immediately upon a Lot is sold, give to Coys his name and address and, if so requested, proof of identity if he has not already done so; and (b) Pay to Coys as agent for the Seller the Purchase Price in accordance with Condition 20.1 unless credit terms have been agreed with Coys in writing before the Auction. 18.3. Full payment for all Lots must be made to Coys by means of bankers draft, cash, telegraphic transfer or debit card in pounds sterling or the currency in which the sale was conducted. Where the Buyer wishes to pay by cheque and Coys has agreed that the Buyer may do so, the Lot will not be released until the cheque has been cleared. 18.4. No Lot may be collected until the Purchase Price has been received by Coys and payments by a Buyer to Coys may be applied by Coys towards any sums due from that Buyer to Coys on any account whatsoever notwithstanding any
directions to the contrary by the Buyer or his agent whether express or implied. 18.5. The ownership of the Lot will pass to the Buyer only when the Purchase Price in cleared funds has been received by Coys. 18.6. Immediately a Lot is sold the risk shall pass to the Buyer notwithstanding that possession will not be given and ownership will not pass to the Buyer before payment of the Purchase Price in full and Coys will not be responsible for any damage to or the loss or destruction of the Lot or any injury, loss or damage caused by the Lot unless caused by the negligence of or other breach of duty by Coys, its employees or agents in the ordinary course of their duties to Coys. The Buyer will compensate Coys in full in respect of all claims and proceedings brought against Coys in respect of any loss or damage to the Lot or injury, loss or damage caused by it not arising from the negligence of or other breach of duty by Coys, its employees or agents in the ordinary course of their duties to Coys. 19. VALUE ADDED TAX VAT payable by the Buyer on the Hammer Price may be refundable by Customs and Excise on proof of export, but Coys makes no warranties in this regard. 20.

Coys shall pay the Net Sale Proceeds to the Seller not later than 35 days after the Auction, or within five working days after receiving cleared funds from the Buyer, whichever shall be the later. Coys shall be under no liability as a result of or arising out of any delay or failure by the Buyer in making payment. 20.3 Unless an alternative method of payment has been agreed by Coys in writing, payment of the Net Sale Proceeds shall be made by sending to the Seller a cheque drawn on Coys’ client account by first class post at the Seller’s risk. 20.4.

Such notice will draw attention to the 14 day limit for the provision of instructions as set out in Condition 21.4 below. Coys shall if instructed take reasonable steps to assist the Seller but Coys shall be under no obligation to institute proceedings in its own name or personally incur any cost or expense. 21.4.

1973 Triumph TR6 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ICR5490L
Estimate: €18,000 - €21,000
The Triumph TR6 was the best-selling Triumph in history when production ended in 1976, but was later surpassed by the TR7. More than 94,000 TR6’s were built, ninety per cent of them to US specification. The TR6 was a refined sports car. It featured pile carpets on floors and boot (trunk), plush-looking bucket seats, a lovely wooden dashboard and a full complement of instrumentation. In the US, it featured the six-cylinder engine that was carried over from the TR250, while the UK version had a more powerful fuel-injected engine from the TR5 that included the Lucas mechanical fuel injection system. It traces its lineage back to the four-cylinder Triumphs: TR4, TR4A, TR3/TR3A and TR2. This stylish six-cylinder sports car is regarded by some as the last true Triumph. The TR6 presented here was delivered in 1973, finished in Triumph Pure White with black leatherette seats. The interior has the original wooden dashboard with original steering wheel. The Triumph is said to drive very well, with its powerful injection motor and optional overdrive gearbox. If you are seeking an honest TR6 in its original specification then this could well be the car for you. The TR6 is offered with Dutch registration papers.

1952 MG TD Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TD19358
Estimate: €25,000 - €30,000
The 1950 MG TD combined the TC’s drivetrain, a modified hypoid-geared rear axle, the MG Y-Type chassis, a familiar T-Type style body and independent suspension using coil springs from the MG Y-Type Saloon. Also new; the rack and pinion steering, smaller 15-inch disc type road wheels, a left hand drive option and standard equipment bumpers with over-riders. The car was five inches wider with a track of 50 inches. In 1950, the TD Mk. II was introduced alongside the standard car, featuring a more highly tuned engine with 8.0:1 compression ratio giving 57bhp at 5500rpm. It featured twin fuel pumps, revised dampers, and a higher rear-axle ratio. Nearly 30,000 MG TD’s have been produced, including some 1,700 Mk. II models. When the series ended in 1953, all but 1,656 were exported with 23,488 of them to the United States. An example tested by ‘The Motor’ magazine in 1952 had a top speed of 77mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 18.2 seconds. This beautiful matching numbers MG TD is finished in Ivory with a Red Leather interior, which complements the exterior beautifully. The TD benefits from much restoration work in recent times and is said to be huge fun to drive. Offered with Dutch registration, this is a highly enjoyable car for summer driving fun!

1971 Porsche 911T Coupe 2.2 Original Matching Numbers Example Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 9111100697
Estimate: €42,000 - €48,000
Porsche’s long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter’s rearengined layout was retained, but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body shell and dropped the 356’s VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. The 911T was added to the Porsche line up in 1968 as the “Touring” form of the 911. It had the 2.0-litre engine, but with a performance output of 110bhp. As of 1969, the 911T got the 2-inch lengthening in its wheelbase, however unlike its counterparts it did retain its Weber carburettors. 1970 brought an engine displacement increase, to 2.2L (2,195cc). That upped the output to 125bhp. For both ‘70 and ‘71, the engine had Zenith carbs, and kept the same compression ratio of 8.6:1. This original matching number example on offer, is presented in a very complementing Irish Green with black leatherette interior. Still equipped with a vast amount of its original interior, a true testament to the level of maintenance this wonderful 911T has received of the years. Leaving the factory on the 12th of November 1970, the car with its 5-speed transmission, is described to be a good driver and equipped with the desirable Rennsport bucket seats. Unlike a number of its counterparts, the underneath, boot and floors of this 911T are said to be solid and rust-free. With its original 125 PS engine still under the bonnet, this resplendent example is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.

1983 Porsche 911 Turbo Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ93ZD5000726
Estimate: €70,000 - €80,000
Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built before F.I.A approval for international racing was granted, led to the creation of ‘Project 930’ – the legendary Porsche 911 Turbo. Production began in April 1975: the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0 litre RSR engine, which in road trim delivered 260bhp and a top speed of 155mph. As impressive as this was, there was more to the Turbo than just top speed. It was also the best equipped 911 produced until that point, amazingly flexible – hence there being only a four speed gearbox – as well as being formidably fast. Indeed, standstill to 100mph was achieved in a mere 14 seconds. Borrowing the flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler from the Carrera model, the Turbo had aggressive looks to match the performance. It also incorporated the most luxurious interior yet seen in a 911, with leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. This matching numbers example, finished in Zinn Metallic with a black leather interior, has benefitted from a previous engine rebuild and is offered with Porsche Geburtsurkunde. We feel a very fairly priced turbo in the current marketplace.
1978 Mercedes-Benz 280 SL Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WDB10704212008870
Estimate: €23,000 - €28,000
The R107 model Mercedes-Benz, is well recognised today and it was rare to see an episode of Dallas or Dynasty in the 1980’s without an SL making a star appearance. The W107 model improved through the years with technical innovation but still managed to keep its fundamental character and identity of an up-market, high-quality sports car. Its reputation went from strength to strength. The genius soft-top mechanism which folds down out of sight under a panel ahead of the boot lid gave the car a beautifully sleek, uncluttered appearance. Of all the engine offerings the 280 remains the most sought after with the 2.8 litre engine offering plenty of power but with the advantage of less weight and this improved handling. This Mercedes-Benz 280 SL cabriolet was originally delivered in Europe in 1978. Nicely finished in Silberblau with dark blue leather interior and matching hardtop, this is a well presented example of possibly one of the most usable and stylish modern classics available today. The SL is offered with Dutch registration papers.
1966 Renault Alpine A108 F.A.S.A Cabriolet One of 111 Made - Comprehensively Restored in 2017 Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: CO103
Estimate: €35,000 - €45,000
Dieppe-born Jean R. initially made his name racing and rallying in the 1950’s at the wheel of self-prepared rear-engined Renaults. The master of the diminutive 4CV, he secured class wins in such major events as the Mille Miglia and Coupe Des Alpes rally. Quick to incorporate his own modifications, he replaced the three-speed gearboxes with five-speed units and even built some lightweight alloy-bodied cars that he campaigned with success at Le Mans and Sebring. It was then a short step to the formation of ‘Societe des Automobiles Alpine’ and cars of his own design - the name was chosen to reflect his past successes in alpine rallies - and the company’s first offering, the A106, was a star of the 1954 Paris Salon. Embodying the best of everything he had learnt from his modified Renaults, the A106 was a rear-engined Coupe based on Renault 4CV mechanicals and clothed in a lightweight body made of fibreglass. Alpine then conspired with Michelotti to produce a stylish low-slung Cabriolet version which was underpinned by an especially stiff backbone chassis of the type that would become Alpine’s hallmark. The Fabrica Automobile Societa Anonyma or F.A.S.A were a tuning company that were licensed to build Renault motorcars for the Spanish market. With the expertise of Jean Rédélé and Manuel Jiménez Alfaro, they used their motorsport facilities to tune Alpines with Renault supplied components and gained a reputation for excellent limited edition models with a strong racing emphasis. Just like Michelotti, F.A.S.A were successful in producing a ‘stylish low-slung Cabriolet’ and this is what we are proud to have on offer with us here today. This particular example has been owned by the current vendor for almost 20 years and having been subject to an older restoration, is described to be in good condition throughout. Despite being considered very collectable and desirable in France and Italy, due to very low production numbers, on a global scale these very stylish and evocative little Alpines are still, even today, only now being really understood and are becoming increasingly collectable. Posing a clearly fantastic investment opportunity, these Alpines are also great fun to drive and are truly iconic in design and identifiable world-wide. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1964 Porsche 356C Coupe by Reutter Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 128218
Estimate: €60,000 - €70,000
Introduced in 1948, the Porsche Type 356 is acknowledged to be one of the world’s greatest sports cars. Over a 15-year production run, the handsome and durable 356 evolved from a streamlined little aluminium-bodied coupe powered by a VW-derived, 46bhp 1,100cc air-cooled flat four to a powerful autobahn burner with a 130bhp 2-litre 4-cam boxer Carrera engine. Over time came coupes, luxurious cabriolets and more spartan Speedsters and Roadsters; more than 76,000 were built by the time production ceased in 1965. By the time the 356B arrived in September 1959, Porsche’s first sports car had gained a one-piece rounded windscreen and 15-inch wheels, along with further styling revisions and a 1,600cc engine. Outwardly very similar to the final 356B, the ultimate 356C model arrived in 1963 sporting disc brakes all round (first seen on the 2-litre Carrera 2), a new ZF steering gear and a compensating spring at the rear to calm the swing axle rear suspension. Engines options were the 75bhp ‘C’ and the 95bhp ‘SC’, both 1,600cc, the latter replacing the Super 90 model. This delightful later “C” series model is finished in the desirable colour combination of black with tanned leather interior. Still retaining its space saver wheel which is found in a tidy boot, this lovely little 356 would be a great car for any collector or enthusiast. Its reserve is very competitive making this car a great opportunity to join the Porsche club world.
1970 Mercedes Benz 280SL Pagoda Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 113044 10 021775
Estimate: €65,000 - €75,000
In March 1963 the new generation of SL sports cars was launched with the debut of the 230 SL at the Geneva Show. This revolutionary new model replaced the now ageing 190 and 300 SL models, and cutting-edge Mercedes engineering together with elegance and practicality, made the ‘pagoda top’ SL one of the most distinctive and attractive cars of its era. In closed form it offered handsome proportions and coupé-like comfort, while the easy removal of the hard-top turned it into an open top sports car for the summer months. During the 1960’s Mercedes-Benz refined and updated the SL by also fitting the 250 engine, and finally the 280. As today, Mercedes-Benz cars were never cheap, but superb build quality and sophisticated styling made the 280 SL a very popular choice with the rich and famous, as well as the merely well-heeled. This wonderful matching numbers example is finished in Tobacco brown with beautifully trimmed beige leather interior. Offered with a hard top and tools and its Becker radio, this is a wonderfully original example of the evocative and increasingly desirable larger engine Pagoda’s.
1996 Aston Martin DB7 Volante One registered keeper from new, ca. 32,000 kilometres and full service record. Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €38,000 - €45,000
Introduced in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin’s first six-cylinder model since production of the DBS had finished in 1971. Designed by Ian Callum at the same time as he designed the coupe, the Volante looks elegant both hood up or down, much like the earlier Aston Martin drop head cars. Well received, it attracted new customers worldwide, with the traditional layout of the curvaceous two door coupé body, robust six-cylinder engine and a luxury interior. Power was supplied by an all-alloy, double overhead camshaft, supercharged, 24-valve, in-line six-cylinder engine which produced 335bhp at 5750rpm. The DB7 was undoubtedly the catalyst for the modern line of Aston Martin. Presented in Silver with grey and blue leather interior, this 1996 DB7 Volante has covered an estimated 32,000 kilometres with full service record to back this up. With only one registered owner from new, this is a wonderful example of a swiftly appreciating classic and the genesis of the modern Aston Martin line; a great investment.
1976 Porsche 930 3.0 Turbo Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 9307700146
Estimate: €130,000 - €150,000
Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built before F.I.A approval for international racing was granted, led to the creation of ‘Project 930’ – the legendary Porsche 911 Turbo. Production began in April 1975: the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0 litre RSR engine, which in road trim delivered 260bhp and a top speed of 155mph. As impressive as this was, there was more to the Turbo than just top speed. It was also the best equipped 911 produced until that point, amazingly flexible – hence there being only a four speed gearbox – as well as being formidably fast. Indeed, standstill to 100mph was achieved in a mere 14 seconds. Borrowing the flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler from the Carrera model, the Turbo had aggressive looks to match the performance. It also incorporated the most luxurious interior yet seen in a 911, with leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. One of only 644 Turbos manufactured in 1976, this fabulous matching numbers example was subject to a comprehensive restoration and now presents extremely nicely in its original shade of ‘Braunkupferdiamant’ with a re-trimmed beige leather interior. More recently the engine has benefitted from a further €7,000 in additional works. Showing 80,000kms recorded and offered with Porsche Geburtsurkunde, this is a first class example of one of the most collectible variants of the iconic 911 Turbo.
1973 De Tomaso Pantera GTS Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: THPNN805218
Estimate: €120,000 - €140,000
Having established himself as a serious automobile manufacturer with the Mangusta coupé, Alejandro De Tomaso commissioned Lamborghini designer Gianpaolo Dallara to produce the chassis for his new mid-engined supercar, the Pantera. Dallara opted for unitary construction for the steel chassis/body - abandoning the Mangusta’s backbone frame - and competition-specification double wishbone/coil-spring suspension all round. The Ford Motor Company was De Tomaso’s partner at the time of the Pantera’s introduction in 1971 and thus the Pantera, like the Mangusta, relied on Ford V8 power. Mated to an all-synchro ZF five-speed transaxle, the 5.8-litre Cleveland engine varied in output depending on the destination market, and in European trim came with 330bhp on tap, enabling the Pantera to complete the 0-60mph sprint in a little over 5 seconds and touch 160mph flat out.
Styled by Tom Tjaarda at Carrozzeria Ghia, the stunning coupé body was in fact built by Vignale, both companies being part of De Tomaso’s empire in the early 1970’s. De Tomaso’s longstanding relationship with the Ford Motor Company led to an arrangement whereby the Pantera was distributed through select Lincoln-Mercury dealerships in the USA, where a lower compression, 248bhp Cleveland motor (meeting stricter emissions regulations) was introduced for 1972. The 1974 energy crisis led to a parting of the ways between Ford and De Tomaso, who continued to sell the Pantera in Europe.
Exceptionally long-lived for a supercar, the Pantera was still around in the 1990’s having undergone a series of upgrades. The first of these had appeared on the Lusso (luxury) ‘L’ model of 1972, which featured ‘impact resistant’ bumpers and improved cooling and air conditioning systems. Flared wheel arches distinguished the GTS model of 1974, which in European trim came with a 350bhp engine, larger wheels/tyres and other performance enhancements. Introduced at approximately the same time was the GT/4, a development of the Group 4 competition cars of 1972/73. This low mileage Pantera in GTS specification served for years as the demonstrator car of the Californian importer of De Tomaso cars. In view of this, the car was equipped with the best specification available and having been a showpiece of various fairs. It was regularly transported in a truck, meaning the modest mileage it has covered to this day is only 16,228. During a no expense spared full restoration, the 5 litre V8 engine was fitted with a big Holley carburettor and upgraded. The car is also equipped with a bigger cooling system and bigger brakes. The interior has been re-trimmed and Ford Motorsport seats are supplied. This wonderful Pantera is now ready to go, a mint super sports car with a pedigree and nothing for the faint hearted.
1958 Mercedes 220S Cabriolet Three registered owners from new Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 180030N8505175
Estimate: €100,000 - €130,000
It is not always appreciated what a stir Mercedes-Benz road cars made in the 1950’s. Leaving aside such obvious stars as the 300SL ‘Gullwing’, there were headlines like ‘Magnificent Mercedes’ when a new saloon came out. It is not hard to see why: the company introduced new levels of build quality to even its most mundane models. Take the 220S, here was a discreetly styled saloon with a top speed of 100mph – when it was introduced in 1956, 100mph was beyond some sports cars. It was superbly assembled at a time when most saloons were of dubious quality and it had such features as servo-assisted brakes and an overhead camshaft engine. It also basked in the reflected glory of Mercedes-Benz’s legendary return to Grand Prix racing in 1954 (Fangio won back-to-back World Championships) and it’s winning of the 1955 World Sports Car Championship. The kudos which surrounded the model range cannot be understated especially since Mercedes-Benz insisted on direct correlations between its road cars and competition cars. With the cars it introduced in the 1950’s, Mercedes-Benz began to move to its present market niche. It was a decision which paid off as Mercedes-Benz has become an extraordinarily successful company on the back of matchless engineering and build quality. The 220S is part of that tradition and remains one of the most desirable motorcars of its day. This very beautiful 220S cabriolet was delivered new in 1958 and is still presented in very good condition today. The car is finished in a very stylish shade of dark red with a contrasting beige leather interior and Sonnenland soft top. The 220S shows just 3 registered owners from new, with two from the same family. This is a beautiful and very stylish car which can be enjoyed straight away.
1963 Alfa Romeo 2600 Bertone Sprint Coupe Registration Number: German registered
Chassis Number: AR10602-826326
Estimate: €22,000 - €28,000
Introduced in 1962, Alfa Romeo’s 106-Series 2600 range was a direct replacement for the preceding 102-Series 2000 cars. The latter’s chassis design and body styles were retained, with minor revisions and improvements, but in place of the old, long-stroke, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine was a new, 2,584cc, twin-cam six clearly descended from the immensely successful Giulietta. A maximum output of 145bhp was claimed for this unit when installed in the Sprint coupé and Spider, good enough for a top speed of around 200km/h in 5th gear, and Cars Illustrated magazine reckoned this magnificent power unit “one of the smoothest, quietest running sixes, irrespective of the speed at which it is running, in our experience.” Carrozzerias Touring and Bertone were responsible for the 2600 Spider and Sprint Coupé respectively, both of which looked like their 2000 predecessors. Approximately 2,255 Spiders and 6,999 Sprint Coupés were produced between 1962 and 1966, and today these rare and under-appreciated models are becoming increasingly sought after by discerning collectors. This particular example comes from a Danish Alfa Romeo collection where the last owner had the car cared for over the last 10 years. It is mechanically in excellent condition with engine, brakes and gearbox working very well. Fitted with period extra instruments for Volt and Ampere measurement. Bodily the car was subject to a restoration during the previous vendor’s tenure.

Chassis Number: 156019
Estimate: €105,000 - €125,000
The 356 series was without doubt the model which catapulted the Porsche marque into world-wide contention in the hotly-contested sports car market. It put into practice Dr Porsche’s highly-evolved theories about ensuring traction through rear-mounted engines, as had been put into practice in some of his mighty pre-war racing designs, and subsequently some of the early Cisitalia racing cars. Another keynote was to keep everything as light as possible, so that all 356 bodywork variations always demonstrated the classic engineering principle of form following function, remaining sharp and purposeful.
This is a left-hand-drive example of the ever-popular Cabriolet, it left the Reutter factory in 1962 and is delightfully presented Ruby red with a black leatherette interior and black roof. The body has recently been subject to a ground up restoration and bare metal respray. The outer and inner frames were completely restored and all joints were protected with sealant and Poli-primer, Raptor bed-liner was applied to the underbody to ensure hassle free body maintenance for this great driver.
During the restoration, all engine metal, differential sleeves, stabilizing bar, backing plates, spindles, etc. were media blasted and powder painted. The parts that needed chroming were re-chromed. The upholstery was done in black leather, and a new German Wocheslander wire harness was installed. The engine is a 1962 1600 Super 616/12 and runs superb according to the current owner. This fine example looks stunning from every angle and appeals to buyers for its high build quality and stunning, sleek and aerodynamic looks. This 356B could be a proud attribute of any private collection, or serve as a nimble yet comfortable ride for continental touring, vintage rallies and club events.
1961 Ferrari 250 GTE Coachwork by Pininfarina Matching Numbers example with less than 40,000km from new Registration Number: Belgian Registration
Chassis Number: 3135GT
Estimate: €240,000 - €300,000
Intended to extend Ferrari’s appeal to a sector of the market already contested by rivals Aston Martin and Maserati, the 250GTE 2+2 arrived in the summer of 1960. Ferrari’s first ‘four-seater’, the 250GTE 2+2 was directly descended from the most commercially successful Ferrari of its day, the 250GT. Launched in 1954, the latter featured a lighter and more-compact Colombo-designed 3.0-litre V12 in place of its Europa predecessor’s bulkier Lampredi unit. The 250GT chassis followed Ferrari’s established practice, being a multi-tubular frame tied together by oval main tubes, though the independent front suspension now employed coil springs instead of the transverse-leaf type.
A four-speed, all-synchromesh gearbox transmitted power to the live rear axle while hydraulic drums all round looked after the braking. Disc brakes arrived late in 1959 and a four-speed-plus-overdrive gearbox the following year, and both these features were incorporated into the 250GTE from the start of production in 1960.
Pininfarina’s brief had been to produce a ‘2+2’ without sacrificing the 250’s elegant good looks or sporting demeanour and the master carrozzier succeeded brilliantly with the GTE. By moving the engine, gearbox and steering gear forward and the fuel tank back, sufficient room was created for two occasional rear seats within the 250GT’s 2600mm wheelbase. The Tipo 128E outside-plug engine’s 240bhp ensured that there was no reduction in performance despite the inevitable gain in weight. A popular and highly profitable car for Ferrari, the 250GTE remained in production until 1963. This Ferrari 250GTE chassis 3153GT was sold new in 1961 in Grigio Silver with sumptuous black leather interior. According to the 250 register it still remained highly original when it was sold in 1992 by Tom Arra with just 36,000 km displaying on its odometer. It was at this time it was repatriated to European shores from the USA.
A desirable series one car which has formed part of the current ownerâ€™s small but exclusive private collection in Beligum , and is offered with Beligian registration papers this matching numbers example is highly original , this car is not to be confused with so many over restored examples and has covered fewer than 5,000 kilometres since 1992. Tastefully finished in silver with its original black leather interior, this most practical of Ferraris has in recent years grabbed the collectorsâ€™ attention as many have grown to appreciate the comfort, style, and usability that made them so popular in the early sixties.
1967 Austin Healey 3000 Mk. III Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: HBJ8L41769
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
The Austin-Healey 3000 was built from 1959 to 1967 and is the best known of the “big” Healey models. The car’s bodywork was made by Jensen Motors and the vehicles were assembled at the BMC Abingdon works. The 3000 Mark III was launched in October 1963 and remained in production until the end of 1967, when production of Austin-Healey’s ceased. Classified as the BJ8, the new model was the most powerful and luxurious of the big Healeys, with a walnut-veneer dash and a 170bhp engine. Improvements to the engine included a new camshaft and valve springs, twin SU 2” HD8 carburettors, together with a new design of exhaust system. Servo-assisted brakes were now fitted as standard. Only 2+2 seat versions were made. This beautifully restored 1967 Austin Healey 3000 Mark III presents extremely nicely in Pale Primrose Yellow with a black interior, lovely Carello lights and chrome wire wheels. The wooden dashboard adds a touch of glamour, as do the chrome dials. With around 170bhp available, also overdrive, this is a very pleasing road car to drive, with the fantastic sporty straight six Healey growl. The Healey is offered with a US title with import duties paid for every EU country.
1985 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WP0AB0913FS120866
Estimate: €29,000 - €34,000
Porsche revived the Carrera name – previously used for the competition orientated versions of the preceding 356 model – for its luxuriously equipped, top-of-therange 911 in 1973, applying the evocative title to all 911 variants, coinciding with the introduction of the 3.2 litre engine, from the start of the 1984 model year. Although it remained an air-cooled flat six, the 3.2 motor was 80% new and incorporated an effective cam chain tensioner and associated lubrication system, which at last addressed a perennial 911 shortcoming. This enlarged and extensively revised new engine produced 231bhp, 27 horsepower more than its predecessor, endowing the Carrera with a level of performance approaching that of the original 911 Turbo of 1974, the bald statistics being a 0-60mph time of 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 152mph, with 100mph reachable in a breath taking 13.6 seconds. A quarter of a century on, Carrera 3.2s are now highly sort after and for very good reason, though finding one in a condition such as this is not easy. This wonderful Carrera 3.2 is finished in its original, and rare colour of Iris Blau Metallic. Also retaining its original matching numbers engine, the car has a full service history and looking at its current condition, has been very well maintained by its previous owners. Its interior trimmed in black, is fitted with electrically adjustable comfort seats. Additional extras from the factory include the electric sunroof, cruise control, 16” Fuchs alloy wheels and sports shock absorbers both front and rear.
1986 Porsche 930 Turbo 3.3 Two owners from new - 45,000 miles from new Registration Number: EU Taxes paid
Chassis Number: WP0JB0936GS050217
Estimate: €75,000 - €85,000
“It offers the finest blend of ultimate performance and refinement I have ever come across…” – Paul Frère on the Porsche 911 Turbo. Much of the Porsche 911’s development had resulted from the factory’s racing program, and it was the then FIA Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of ‘Project 930’ – the legendary 911/930 Turbo. In production from April 1975, the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0-liter Carrera RSR engine, in road trim a combination that delivered 260bhp for a top speed of 155mph. But the Turbo wasn’t just about top speed, it was also the best-equipped 911 and amazingly flexible – hence only four speeds in the gearbox – being capable of racing from a standstill to 100mph in 14 seconds. What set the 930 Turbo apart from its peers was the relaxed way this stupefying performance was delivered. Comparing the Turbo to similarly quick ‘he-man’ cars such as the Holman & Moody-tuned Cobra 427 and the Ford GT40, Motor’s Roger Bell reckoned what made the Porsche so different was that it “hurls you forward with similar velocity but in an uncannily quiet and effortless way. To be shoved so hard in the back that you need high-back seats to keep your head on, yet neither to feel nor hear anything more than a muffled hum, is a very odd sensation indeed in a car.” Still retaining its matching numbers engine and transmission, today’s era-evoking 930 Turbo presents beautifully throughout, and is very much original from head to toe. As you would expect a car of this condition, the recorded mileage is a very respectable 46,000 and has had only two owners from new, its last custodian having looked after the car for 18 years. Finished in the most desirable colour combination of black with black leather interior, and equipped with the necessary 16” Fuchs wheels, the car is described to be very tight and to handle beautifully. Provided with a complete service book, owner’s manual and wallet, we are informed that the car has been mechanically prepared to a very high standard. Combining the unmistakable looks of a classic Porsche, the powerful Turbo motor, and the collectability that goes hand in hand with its low production figures, this extraordinary 930 turbo will not disappoint.
1967 Ford Mustang V8 Convertible Fitted with rare manual gearbox Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 7T03C130134
Estimate: €30,000 - €36,000
The Ford Mustang was conceived in the full knowledge that in the mid 1960’s the biggest population bubble in history was now coming of age in America, ‘baby boomers’ would rule the 1960’s and there was little or no reason to think they wanted to drive cars that were anything like the ones their parents owned. The iconic Ford Mustang, therefore, created a storm when it hit the streets and it still does to this day. Ford wanted to make the Mustang affordable and consequently it needed to share much of its engineering with an existing Ford product. They decided to base the Mustang on the smallest US Ford at the time, the Falcon. The Mustang was initially offered as either a ‘notchback’ coupé or convertible. It shared its front double-wishbone/coil spring and leaf spring rear suspension with the Falcon. Compared to the Falcon the cockpit sat further back on the chassis, resulting in a longer front end and shorter rear end design, both its roof and bonnet were also lower in comparison. It’s with those proportions, and detailed with such iconic touches such as the galloping horse in the grille, the cutaway side panels and the rear lights divided into three sections, that the Mustang became a car that people were instantly passionate about. This wonderful 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible is finished in the very period late 1960’s combination of Lime Green Poly metallic paint with a white vinyl interior. The ‘Stang is powered by the lusty 4.7 litre, 200bhp motor with a rare and now desirable manual gearbox option. The Mustang has benefitted from light restoration works and is now presented in very good condition. A great classic car for summer cruising, just fill with friends or family and take off for the day!

Chassis Number: 2263395
Estimate: €38,000 - €45,000
The elegant CS-Coupés are among the milestones of the BMW - not least because of the fantastic silky smooth six-cylinder engine.

This is an exceptional coupé with a breathtaking design in the sought-after CSI variation and is certainly true to the motto: BMW For joy of driving.
1956 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Complete with hard and soft tops. Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €30,000 - €40,000
Conceived to challenge Chevrolet’s Corvette sports car, the iconic Thunderbird debuted in October 1954 and was one of the first models produced with Ford’s new overhead-valve V8 engine. Introduced in two-seat ‘personal car’ form, the Thunderbird was intended to appeal to image-conscious younger customers, and beat the Corvette hands down in the sales war thanks to its superior V8 engine and greater refinement. A low, sleek two-seater, the Thunderbird offered amenities not found in the competing Chevrolet Corvette, most particularly rollup windows, offering comfort and convenience options tailored to an affluent market. Ford’s product planners hit the market dead centre and over 16,000 Thunderbirds were assembled in the 1955 model year. This lovely example is said to be in good condition throughout, the thunderbird comes complete with a soft top and hard top and remains one of the most stylish looking cars on the road today. With all the relevant documents this thunderbird is ready for a new owner. Ready to drive in the summer months.
2004 Mercedes G500 G-Wagen Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €32,000 - €36,000
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class or G-Wagon, short for Geländewagen (cross-country vehicle), is characterised by its boxy styling and body-on-frame construction. It uses three fully locking differentials, one of the few vehicles to have such a feature. The G-Class is still in production and is one of the longest produced Mercedes-Benz in Daimler’s history. It was developed as a military vehicle from a suggestion by the Shah of Iran and offered as a civilian version in 1979. A new version was expected for 2007, but ultimately whilst the new GL-Class is a fine performing product in the Mercedes tradition, it was not sufficient to steal the affection for the classic Geländewagen. And so the G-Wagon is still in production and selling well to the current day. This later very well specified G500 model shows only 81,000 kms recorded, with beautiful paintwork and very nice original black leather interior. Offered with a Mercedes book pack, this is a highly capable classic which can be used and enjoyed in all weather conditions.
1997 Porsche 993 Turbo Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WPOAC2991VS376002
Estimate: €120,000 - €140,000
File Image The 993 is the company’s internal name for the version of the Porsche 911 model manufactured and sold between late 1993 and early 1998, replacing the 964. Its discontinuation marked the end of air-cooled Porsches. The 993 Turbo Coupe was released in 1995. It featured a new turbochargers engine displacing 3.6 liters producing 402 hp. Twin turbochargers and air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals were used. The 993 Turbo was the first Porsche Turbo with all-wheel drive. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to any of the previous production Turbos. In connection with two catalytic converters and an on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, it also made the 993 Turbo the cleanest sports car at its time. The Turbo’s bodywork differs from the Carrera body by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper mouldings and a fixed rear wing housing the intercoolers. new 18-inch alloy wheels with weight-reducing hollow spokes were standard. Finished in Guards Red with a tan leather interior, we understand this late 1997 model Turbo benefits from modifications to S specification, details of which are available upon request. Showing a mere 43,000 recorded, the Turbo is offered with Dutch registration papers. Now is the time to invest in a low mileage example of one of the ultimate air-cooled Porsches you can buy.
1962 Studebaker Hawk GT Rare European Delivery Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: 62V26086
Estimate: €17,000 - €22,000
The Studebaker Hawk Gran Turismo was a sporty coupé produced by the Studebaker-Packard Corporation from 1962 to 1964. The styling of the GT Hawk was a rather radical facelift that the designer Brooks Stevens had the old Hawk shape; Stevens wanted a European-styled car with clean lines, and he called it Hawk Monaco (the prototype even had Monegasque features!). The bonnet of the previous models was retained, but got a more emphasized radiator frame to look more like the Mercedes-Benz, which was then also driven by Studebaker in the USA. Despite the European influence, the Gran Turismo Hawk also showed American attributes, e.g. the roof line, which was very similar to the Ford Thunderbird. A special feature is the almost flat but recessed rear window. Overall, the exterior kept its soft, aerodynamic style of the former Studebaker, but brought it to a contemporary level. The Hawk GT was lightweight for an American car of its class and time, and so its grand V8 made it a high-performance car, with amazing handling and a safe straight-line run. Today the Hawk Gran Turismo is very much sought after. The GT Hawk has been distinguished as a special feature by the Milestone Car Society. This Studebaker was registered for the first time in Switzerland. This GT served as a US embassy vehicle in Switzerland, before it was exhibited in a museum in Eastern Switzerland for many years. Here a beautiful piece of automobile history is offered in the absolute original condition, with contemporary and loving patina, inspiring driving and a very noble appearance. Do not miss the opportunity to buy such a rare and elegant automobile with a rare 4-speed gearbox and 8-cylinder engine.
1984 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Porsche developed a reputation early on for their surprising performance from their small displacement rear-engine sports and racing cars. These ‘giant killers’ could outperform cars with much higher horsepower figures by making light cars with incredible handling. This combination gave Porsches their truly unique driving characteristics and dedicated following of Porsche enthusiasts. Starting in 1963 with the original 911, Porsche has produced a line of six-cylinder rear-engine sportscars that could compete with much more powerful cars thanks to their low weight and superior handling. The 911 quickly became an icon of performance and handling and offered a driving experience unlike anything else. The 911 has continuously evolved into a more sophisticated, powerful, and capable driving machine, as well as a reliable and usable car. Introduced in 1984, The Carrera 3.2 was the last iteration of the classic 911 before the large changes for the 964. The Carrera 3.2 is fitted with a rear-mounted, air-cooled SOHC 3.2 liter flat six. This engine, equipped with Bosch LE-Jetronic fuel injection, could produce 217 horsepower at 5,900 rpm. Maximum torque was 195 foot-pounds at 4,800 rpm, which was delivered through the Getrag G50 five-speed manual transaxle and hydraulic clutch, much welcomed introductions for the 1987 production year. The Carrera 3.2 also featured an improved interior over its predecessor, the 911 SC, with liberal use of leather and comfort features like power seats, power wing mirrors, and air conditioning.
True to Porscheâ€™s reputation, the Carrera 3.2 offered the unique experience of driving pleasure and performance without sacrificing comfort and usability. Because of their robust construction and strong owners groups, these 1980s 911s are great cars to be enjoyed and driven. The Targa presented here is the one of the earlier 3.2 Carrera models with 915 gearbox, which are known to be lighter and more responsive than the later cars with the heavier G50 gearbox. This lovely matching numbers example is finished in the classic 80s combination of Guards Red with a Black Leather interior. Showing 90,000 kilometres recorded, the Targa is offered complete with stamped service booklet to demonstrate servicing work over the years. All in all a very compelling proposition for the Porsche enthusiast.
1974 Mini Leyland Clubman Estate Registration Number: EU Taxes paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €7,000 - €9,000
In 1969, under the ownership of British Leyland, the Mini was given a facelift by stylist Roy Haynes, who had previously worked for Ford. The restyled version was called the Mini Clubman, and has a squarer frontal look, using the same indicator/sidelight assembly as the Austin Maxi.
The Mini Clubman was intended to replace the upmarket Riley and Wolseley versions. A new model, dubbed the 1275 GT, was slated as the replacement for the 998 cc Mini Cooper (the 1,275 cc Mini Cooper S continued alongside the 1275 GT for two years until 1971). The Clubman Estate replaced the Countryman and Traveller. The original “round-front” design remained in production alongside the Clubman and 1275 GT.
This wonderful example of the Mini Clubman, presented in the original red paint with beige interior, was first delivered to Italy. The car is said to have a wonderful patina and maintains the wooden dashboard and rev counter from the day of delivery.

1969 Ford BOSS 429 Mustang Registration Number: TBA
Chassis Number: 9F02Z173034
Estimate: €200,000 - €230,000
In the late 1960s, facing stiff competition in NASCAR from Chrysler, Ford developed a new 429-cubic inch V-8 with all-new free-flowing cylinder heads, an aluminum high-rise intake manifold, a 735 CFM Holley carburetor, 11.0:1 compression, header-style exhaust manifolds, and a beefy four-bolt main block, conservatively rated at 375 horsepower. When dropped into the Mustang, it created the Boss 429, a pony car with abundant muscle. To handle the power, the stout “Toploader” four-speed manual transmission and a 3.91:1 Traction-Lok rear axle were mandatory options. Other features included an engine oil cooler, a trunk-mounted battery, a competition suspension with front and rear anti-roll bars, power front disc brakes, and fat F60x15 tires. The production process required numerous modifications to accommodate the new engine, including cutting and relocating the shock towers. To alleviate the in-house production burden, Ford had the cars sent to Kar Kraft, of Brighton, Michigan. The Boss 429 was the priciest non-Shelby Mustang to date, at $4,087, and it was available in very limited numbers, with fewer than 900 produced for the 1969 model year. Rolling off production line in Dearborn in 1969, this is one of only 859 examples produced worldwide, and equipped with the uprated 429ci engine, putting out a huge 500bhp. This matching numbers BOSS has enjoyed an extensive professional restoration, as as result it is described as being in as new condition. Arguably one of the rarest and most desirable muscle cars you can buy, this is an excellent example of the ultimate incarnation of the classic Ford Mustang.

1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Roadster Offered at No Reserve Registration Number:E U Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 1E 15510
Estimate: €70,000 - €90,000
On its 1961 Geneva Show debut the E-Type caused a sensation. With all the promise of its looks confirmed by independent road test results, that not only recorded a 150mph top speed but also 0-60mph and 0-l00mph in 6.9 and 16.2 seconds respectively; fast indeed, and the match of any exotic thoroughbred then available, combined with superb roadholding and remarkable docility.
One of the greatest post-war sports cars, Jaguar’s E-Type made immediate headlines on its launch in March 1961. Here was a sleek and beautiful 150mph car with a competition pedigree that could be bought for just over £2,000, almost half the cost of an Aston Martin or Ferrari. A direct descendant of the XK120 and competition C and D-Type models that so dominated fifties sports car racing, the E-Type shared its 265bhp 3.8 litre twin-cam straight-six engine with the XK150 ‘S’, mated to a Moss four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios.
Beneath the William Lyons/Malcolm Sayer-styled body, available in either closed or roadster form, the steel monocoque chassis sported all-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, mounted inboard at the back. Built in 1967, this left hand drive roadster was delivered new to California before being imported to the Netherlands and finally coming to the UK. The current vendor has kept the car in a climate controlled garage and has recently lavished an extensive mechanical and electrical overhaul to the tune of ÂŁ7,000 on the car. This work was carried out by marque specialist, Winspeed Motorsport of Guildford and the supporting invoices can be seen in the history file.
Presented in the original colour combination of Ascot Fawn with Cinnamon leather interior, which is showing a wonderful patina, this car has an exceptional panel fit that belies its age. The current vendor has recently paid EU Taxes on the vehicle and so it is ready to be registered by the lucky new owner. A wonderful example of what is widely regarded as the most desirable of the E Type series and offered at an exceptionally low reserve.

1974 Ferrari 308 GT4 Dino Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: T106AL08552
Estimate: â‚Ź50,000 - â‚Ź60,000
Introduced at the 1973 Paris Motor Show, the Dino 308 GT4 was a significant departure for Ferrari in several ways. It was the first production car from Modena to feature a mid-engined V8, a layout that would become common to their core range for decades to come, along with the first production model to feature Bertone styling rather than Pininfarina bodywork. The styling was controversial at the time, with some journalists comparing it to the Bertone-designed Lancia Stratos and Lamborghini Urraco. The chassis was based on the Dino 246 but was stretched to make space for a 2+2 Configuration. The 3.0 Litre V8 was integrally joined with the gearbox and had an alloy block and heads with dual overhead camshafts fed through 4 Weber 40 DCNF carburetors. The GT4 was replaced by the Mondial 8 in 1980 after a production run of 2,826 308s and 840 208s. This early 308 GT4 Dino was delivered new to France in 1974. In the last 43 years the car has covered just 55,000 kilometres, and has benefitted from restoration work in more recent years. The bodywork was treated to a repaint in Rosso Corsa approximately 7 years ago, and still presents well. The motor has been treated to a rebuild, and the brakes have also been recently overhauled. The 308 has also benefited from a fresh service, with other small items being attended to. As you might expect the Ferrari drives very well, with the smooth yet powerful V8 motor. Offered with French registration papers, this is a very nice example of an early and increasingly desirable V8-engined Ferrari.
1967 Porsche 912 SWB Coupe Rare 5-Speed transmission Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 458490
Estimate: €29,000 - €34,000
Put into production in July 1964, the 911 presaged the end of 356-production. It was July 1965 before the 911 made it to the US, and customers immediately noticed the differences from its predecessor. In addition to being more modern and more powerful, it was also more expensive: nearly $2,000 more than the comparable 356 model. In Europe, too, this was a problem. Thus, by April 1965 a “transitional model” entered production. Essentially a 911 with a 356-type flat four, the new car, designated “912,” was not only less expensive, selling at near356 prices, but enjoyed more even weight distribution and better economy. The combination of the four-cylinder engine and the slipperier 911 design was capable of achieving 30 mpg. Finished in the appealing colour combination of Golf blue with black interior, this wonderful example still retains its original 1.6L Flat-4 engine (#746825) producing 90 hp through a 5-speed manual transmission. This ’67 912 also features the external temperature gauge in Fahrenheit, 5-gauge dash, and wooden steering wheel. Described to run and drive well, the car presents nicely with special mention to its interior. With vintage Porsche values on the sharp rise, this 1967 car makes a great entry point into the 912 market
Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: AR102011*01198*
Estimate: €85,000 - €100,000
The Alfa Romeo 2000 Spider was launched in 1958 using practically the same engine and running gear as the far more ubiquitous Alfa Romeo Berlina Coupe, but with a tuned engine and a spectacular convertible monocoque body designed by the famous coachbuilders, Touring of Milan. The four cylinder engine had the same displacement as the Berlina, but produced 115bhp at 5,700rpm, as opposed to the coupe’s 105bhp at 5,300rpm. This was due to the addition of twin carburettors and an improved compression ratio of 8.5:1. This produced a top speed of 109mph, as opposed to the Berlina’s 99mph. This wonderful matching numbers car is finished in red with black leather interior, and is said to have both beautiful coachwork and a lovely interior. A unique opportunity to acquire a left-hand drive matching numbers example, for preservation or full restoration.
1936 Austin Nippy Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 247767
Estimate: €18,000 - €22,000
The Austin Seven was produced from 1922 through to 1939 by the Austin Motor Company. Nicknamed the ‘Baby Austin’, it was one of the most popular cars ever produced and sold equally well abroad. It took a huge sector of the UK market having a similar effect to that of the Model T Ford in the USA. Prior to the Austin Seven, larger cars were the order of the day; however, the forward thinking Sir Herbert Austin felt a smaller car would be more popular. In spite of protestations from the company’s board of directors who were concerned about the financial status of the company, Austin won them over by threatening to take the idea to their competitor, Wolseley, and so got permission to start on his design. He was assisted by a young draughtsman called Stanley Edge who worked at Austin’s home. Austin put a large amount of his own money into the design and patented many of its innovations; in return for the investment he was paid a royalty of two guineas on every car sold. Nearly 2,500 cars were made in the first year of production (1923); not as many as hoped but within a few years the ‘big car in miniature’ had transformed the fortunes of the Austin Motor Company and by 1939, when production finally ended, 290,000 cars and vans had been manufactured. This very pretty Austin Seven ‘Nippy’, chassis 247767, is finished in Fire Engine Red with black wings and matching black leather seats. Our Nippy is said to drive very well, and is offered in good condition in all respects. The little Austin is supplied with German registration papers in addition to a brand new German TuV. The Austin Seven has always been regarded as an entry level pre-war classic. However in more recent times these early tourers and sports models have come to represent a good fun investment for the future and none more so than this charming example.
1959 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Registration Number: Swedish
Chassis Number: AR149308906
Estimate: €35,000- €40,000
The Alfa, in a few words then, is a small car with a rev-happy dohc engine that can carry two people from point A to point B over all types of roads quicker than most cars twice its size. It does this not with blinding speed but with a wonderful combination of roadholding, compact size and sheer willingness.’ – Car & Driver on the Giulietta Sprint. With the introduction of the Bertone-styled Giulietta Sprint in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the ‘small car, big performance’ formula that would characterise the Milanese marque’s finest offerings from then on. Alfa’s classic twin-cam four was downsized to 1,290ccc for the 750-Series Giulietta, gaining an alloy cylinder block in the process. The Sprint coupé was soon joined by Berlina and Spider versions, the latter styled by Pinin Farina and built on a slightly shorter wheelbase.
The Giulietta familyâ€™s success surprised even Alfa themselves; production targets were revised upwards and to satisfy demands for increased performance, upgraded Veloce versions of the Sprint and Spider were introduced. The combination of a rev-happy engine, fine-handling, responsive chassis and excellent brakes make the Giulietta Sprint a driverâ€™s car par excellence and explains why these stylish Alfa Romeos continue to attract the discerning enthusiast today. This charming 1959 example, finished in Alfa Romeo Red with a black interior has come from Sweden, and is offered with certificate di origine. Fitted with a desirable 1600 engine this little alfa will perform as well as it looks.
1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Saloon Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: LML/911
Estimate: €140,000 - €160,000
With the introduction of the ‘2+2’ DB2/4 in October 1953, Aston Martin extended the DB2’s appeal to the hitherto untapped yet increasingly important market comprised of ‘sports car enthusiasts with a family’. Modifications to the rear of the chassis, plus a reduction in fuel tank capacity from 19 to 17 gallons, liberated sufficient space within the existing design for two child-sized occasional rear seats.
Alternatively, the rear seat backs could be folded down, thus creating a load-carrying platform that more than doubled the luggage space. The latter could be accessed via the 2/4’s opening rear door, a pioneering example of the now commonplace ‘hatchback’ concept. ‘This transformation gives the Aston Martin DB2/4 an unrivalled luggage-carrying capacity in a car which should be capable in favourable circumstances of achieving two miles a minute,’ reported The Motor. ‘The DB2/4 can truthfully claim to be the fastest car in the world capable of carrying two people with a month’s luggage.’
Standard specification included the 2.6-litre ‘VB6E’ engine in 125bhp Vantage tune, but from early in 1954 the 3.0-litre 140bhp ‘VB6J’ engine was installed. Equipped with the latter, the DB2/4 was one of the fastest cars then built in Great Britain – with 100mph achievable in third gear and around 120mph maximum – possessing impeccable handling plus a level of comfort rare in any high-performance car.
This wonderful example was first delivered new to the Ireland Brothers Limited, Cambridgeshire, England on 27th May 1955, finished in black with a beige leather interior. According to the Heritage Certificate, factory options include Alfin drum brakes, Radiomobile 200XB radio, 1 Marchal Grand Portee spot lamp, 1 Marchal Virages Brouillard fog lamp and instruction book. The car comes to market having been in the care of a private owner in France for over 40 years and represents a fine opportunity for the discerning collector.
1986 Aston Martin V8 Volante Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 15480
Estimate: €150,000 - €200,000
Described by former Aston Martin Chairman Victor Gauntlett as, ‘a stylish thoroughbred, beautifully built, luxurious, fast and immensely safe,’ the V8 was built in several variants, one of the more exclusive being the Volante convertible. 1978 saw the introduction of a much-awaited Volante convertible, with a power operated fully lined hood. The V8 evolved over its long production life, more engine modifications being introduced in 1980 with the “580 series” engine, BBS wheels replacing the GKN alloys in 1983, and in late 1985 the adoption of Weber Marelli fuel injection. These “585” engined cars were notable for their flat bonnet line and were the final development of the model.
Arguably the ultimate in soft-top luxury, the newcomer boasted a lined, power-operated hood which, when erected, endowed the walnut embellished interior with all the solidity and refinement associated with the saloon version. Although its open-car aerodynamics meant that top speed suffered with the hood down, the Volante’s 150mph top speed nevertheless ranked it among the world’s fastest convertibles. V8 Volante and Vantage Volante chassis numbers ran from ‘15001’ to ‘15849’, a total of 849 cars. Total production of V8 Volante with Weber carburettors reached 441 examples of which just 157 are known to be right hand drive and only 19 of these known to have manual transmission. This leaves 266 known left hand drive cars and of these, just 50 with manual transmission. Of the left hand drive cars, 173 were sold in North America. The V8 Volante was an overwhelming success accounting for more than half of the V8 engined Astons produced every year.
Chassis number 15480 is one of just 47 with original European specification, leaving the factory at Newport Pagnell in 1986. Ordered new with the desirable automatic transmission the volante was dressed in Aston Martin Racing Green with a green everflex hood and beige Connolly hide upholstery exactly as the car remains today. Delivered new on the 18th June 1986 by Aston Martin Sales, London to a Mr O Otham. Just three custodians have been lucky enough to own this fine example, one of which who owned the car for some 26 years before moving it on. The Aston is supplied with its original period handbook and wallet pack as well as original factory fitted luggage and a documented service record. Detailed ownership history including original receipts from Aston Martin Specialists as well as recent invoices from marque specialistâ€™s RS Williams also accompany the car. Offered with a comprehensive history file, UK registration document and current MoT test certificate. With only ca. 14,000 miles showing on the odometer, we are sure this lovely example must be one of the best v8 volantes on the market today.
1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 9307700107
Estimate: €95,000 – €125,000
Much of the Porsche 911’s development had resulted from the factory’s racing program, and it was the then FIA Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of ‘Project 930’ - the legendary 911/930 Turbo. In production from April 1975, the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0-liter Carrera RSR engine, in road trim a combination that delivered 260bhp for a top speed of 155mph. But the Turbo wasn’t just about top speed, it was also the best-equipped 911 and amazingly flexible - hence only four speeds in the gearbox - being capable of racing from a standstill to 100mph in 14 seconds. What set the 930 Turbo apart from its peers was the relaxed way this stupefying performance was delivered. Comparing the Turbo to similarly quick ‘he-man’ cars such as the Holman & Moody-tuned Cobra 427 and the Ford GT40, Motor’s Roger Bell reckoned what made the Porsche so different was that it “hurls you forward with similar velocity but in an uncannily quiet and effortless way. To be shoved so hard in the back that you need high-back seats to keep your head on, yet neither to feel nor hear anything more than a muffled hum, is a very odd sensation indeed in a car. This wonderful early 930 Turbo was delivered new to Mahag, Munchen, Germany. Most recently the car has received a full windows out respray in its original colour of Platindiamant with a complementary and very period dark green interior.
1989 BMW Z1 2 owners from new - 65,000 km from new - Comprehensive history file Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WBABA91080AL00501
Estimate: €40,000 - €45,000
The first BMW Z1 (Z standing for Zunkuft, German for future) was shown at the 1987 Frankfurt Motor show. Initial demand was so strong that 5,000 orders were placed before production even began. The car developed by BMW Technik GmbH featured a unique door arrangement where the doors, instead of opening outward, dropped down into the car’s sills. The chassis was specially designed for the Z1 and features a number of innovative features: removable body panels; continuously zinc welded seams; a composite undertray; as well as the unusual dropped doors. Parts of the car (including the engine, gearbox, and front suspension) were borrowed from the BMW E30 325i, but the Z1 remains largely original. The 6 cylinder 2.5-litre engine was borrowed from the already highly successful BMW E30 325i and this, coupled to the fact that the body of the car was constructed from lightweight composite materials, gave the car adequate performance. Some 8,000 examples were produced between 1988 and 1991 when production ceased. This original German delivered BMW Z1 with only two owners from new, was imported and supplied by BMW Vriesendijk Netherlands in 2003. The car is in good condition throughout, finished in the much-sought after colour red, is completely original with a verifiable recorded mileage of only 65,817km. The exterior and interior are described by the seller to be in very nice condition as are the mechanics. Because of the low weight, the powerful 6-cylinder engine and aerodynamics, the handling of the Z1 is phenomenal, a real driver’s car! Due to a relatively low production number, and signifying the beginning of one of the most successful model ranges, the Z1 has shown over the years to be a very good investment prospect. Documentation such as MOT-reports, appraisal report, invoices, old German registration papers and original booklets including a stamped service book are present. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1964 Mercedes-Benz 220SE Cabriolet Recently restored to showroom condition Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 111023 10027348
Estimate: €100,000 - €120,000
Mercedes-Benz debuted four new models at the Frankfurt Show in 1959 – the 220SE among them – all of which shared the same basic unitary-construction bodyshell and all-round independent suspension. Longer than their predecessors, the newcomers featured a wider radiator shell, wrap-around windscreen, wider rear window and vertically positioned twin headlamps. Top speed was now 107mph with 60mph attainable in under 14 seconds. Coupe and convertible models appeared in 1961, minus the already dated-looking tail fins of the saloon. More modern in style, the 220SE coupé and convertible were better appointed too, being equipped as standard with a rev-counter, leather upholstery and fourspeed automatic transmission. Front disc brakes were fitted from the start of production. On offer with us today is a truly beautiful example of a 220SE Cabriolet W111. Described to be in a wonderfully restored, showroom condition; this particular 220SE must surely be one of the nicest examples available of the mere 2,727 pieces produced. Its revised 6-cylinder engine is described to run very well and the gearbox to change effortlessly and problem free. Finished beautifully in dark blue with cognac leather, the engine revision and restoration is recorded in the cars extensive history file. A perfect car for a real Mercedes enthusiast or collection!
1975 Porsche 911S Targa Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 9116210881
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
After 1973, it was decided that the 2.4 litre wasn’t really fast enough for the 911, with the impending American emissions standards threatening to slow the model down to the point that ordinary Cadillacs would smoke its droopy tail. The solution: to take the 2.7-litre engine developed for the Carrera RS, detune it a bit, and make it standard across the board. This made the 911 a very usable sports car for all driving conditions. It was only natural that capacity for mainstream production should be increased to 2687cc, which gave a good increase in torque to match the 150bhp of the 911 2.7 Coupe. Impact bumpers were now required to satisfy American law and production ran from 1974 to 1977.
1974 Jensen Interceptor Mark III Convertible One of only 507 produced – APK until 2019 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 23111492
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
More than any of its previous models, the Interceptor of the Sixties firmly established Jensen as a producer of stylish, high performance and hand-built cars. The prototype Interceptor appeared in 1965, a two seater convertible with alloy coachwork, a third transverse rear seat and either 4.5 or 6.3 litre Chrysler engine. Although well received, Jensen realised the market was really for closed cars and entrusted the design to Vignale in Italy. Launched at the 1966 London Motor Show, the stylish Interceptor proved a star attraction. Beneath its now steel coachwork the substantial parallel tube chassis featured independent wishbone/coil spring front suspension and disc brakes allround. Power came from a 6,276cc Chrysler V8, producing 325bhp at 4,600rpm and an impressive 4251b.ft at 2,800rpm, mated to a three-speed Chrysler automatic transmission – sufficient for a top speed of 133mph and 0-60mph in just 7.4 seconds. Inside, Connolly leather and Wilton carpets ensured luxury while the dashboard was comprehensively equipped. In October 1968, shortly after power steering became standard, the Interceptor was announced in Mk II form with larger fuel tank, reclining seats, restyled fascia and optional air conditioning. The Mk III appeared in October 1971, boasting a 7,212cc engine, ventilated disc brakes, alloy wheels and restyled interior. A convertible was introduced in 1974, mainly for the European market. In the mid-1970’s most other manufacturers had abandoned the convertible ahead of an expected US ban. When the latter failed to materialise, Jensen was left in a strong position, selling a recorded 456 Convertibles, in its short two year production run. Jensen Motors were, however, hit badly by the oil shocks of the early 1970’s and, having called in the receivers in September 1975, ceased trading in May 1976. Today the Interceptor Convertible is one of Jensen’s most sought after models. Offered with a fresh Dutch MOT (APK) due to expire in June 2019, unlike many of the examples we have seen in Europe, this original California car is very solid and rust-free. The chromework is good and the roof presents almost as new. The car is described to drive well with everything from its electric windows, to convertible roof and airconditioning fully functioning. Offered at a considerably low reserve, this very original example presents a fantastic investment opportunity and is ready to be driven away by its new owner.
1972 Porsche 911 E Registration Number: EU registered
Chassis Number: TBC
Estimate: €70,000 – €90,000
Porsche’s long-running and much loved 911 sports car first appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show as the ‘901’, but shortly after production proper commenced in 1964 had become the ‘911’ following Peugeot’s complaints about the use of ‘0’ model numbers. The preceding Type 356’s rear-engined layout was retained but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356’s VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche’s single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six engine displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3.0 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. The first of countless upgrades to the perennial 911 came in 1966, two years after production had commenced, with the introduction of the 911S, which featured stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels and a heavily revised and more powerful engine. Improved handling courtesy of a lengthened wheelbase arrived in 1969 and then in 1970 the 911’s air-cooled, flat six engine underwent the first of many enlargements - to 2.2 litres. By this time the models on offer had stabilised at three: the entry-level 911T, middle-ranking 911E and top-of-the-range 911S, all of which were available as either a closed coupé or Targa convertible. With the 2.2-litre engine’s arrival, a common type of cylinder head was adopted, the differing power outputs being determined principally by valve timing rather than valve sizes as had been the case hitherto. In 1972 all 911 variants received the 2,341cc (nominally 2.4-litre) unit, which in ‘E’ specification produced a maximum of 165bhp. This 911E on offer today is in good condition throughout. Matching numbers and finished in azure blue, this desirable 72’ example comes from a private Belgian collection and would welcome closer inspection.
1938 Bentley 4 1/4 Sportsman’s Coupe by De Villars The 1938 Paris Motor Show Car Desirable Overdrive Gearbox Model Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: B8MR
Estimate: €130,000 - €160,000
A rare overdrive car with stunning foursome coachwork by famed French carosserier De Villars; one of 5 derby Bentley chassis built by them. After bodying, the Bentley was displayed at the 1938 Paris Motor Show, at the end of which it was, reputedly, purchased by a French Army general. The car’s next recorded owners are Edgar de Evia and Robert Denning of New York, who purchased it in 1955, by which time the interior had been re-trimmed in red.
There were two further owners and then in 1975 the Bentley passed to Dominic Cappelli of North Carolina. Mr Cappelli commissioned a restoration, which was completed in 1989 by John Griffin of Montgomery, Alabama at a cost of approximately $50,000. Since being repatriated to the UK B8MR has been the recipient of a further £50,000 spent with motor engineer Michael Hibberd and also Fiennes Engineering. The car is thus in very fine order and ready for immediate extended use. The excellent exterior paint is pale blue over darker grey wings with a grey flash down the side. The interior is lovely pale grey leather and matching grey carpets with a grey painted dash board. The car is tidy under the bonnet as one might expect and has a quiet powerful engine registering good oil pressure and running cool.
The coachwork affords comfortable seating for four people with a capacious rear seat. The front seats are fitted with Bugatti style grab rails to their tops. Marechal headlamps are fitted up front along with a fog lamp and twin horns. All knobs and switches are placarded in French. The car comes to us with an enormous history file detailing minutely the various works that have been undertaken to bring it up to the standard we find it in today. A full set of tools is located in the fold out boot tray.
1990 Porsche 964 Carrera 4 Cabriolet Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WPOC82Z96ZMS46062
Estimate: €36,000 - €42,000
Representing a major step forward, the Carrera 4 and Carrera 2 versions of the Porsche 911 – code named ‘964’ – were launched in 1989, the former marking the first time that four-wheel drive had been seen on a series-production 911. Porsche had experimented with four-wheel drive on the 959 supercar, and many of the lessons learned from the latter influenced the design of the 964’s chassis and suspension. Face-lifted but retaining that familiar shape, the newcomers had been given a more extensive work-over mechanically, 87% of parts being claimed as entirely new. The pair shared the same 3.6-litre, 247bhp, flat-six engine while power-assisted steering (another 911 ‘first’), anti-lock brakes and a five-speed manual transmission were standard on both, with the Tiptronic auto ‘box a Carrera 2-only option. Its new Type M64 engine enabled the 964 to out-perform the old ‘3.2’ yet still met the latest emissions regulations, top speed increasing to 162mph with 60mph attainable in 5.4 seconds. Beautiful in Midnight Blue with a Blue leather interior, and offered with its original service booklets and owners manual, this air-cooled Porsche cabriolet is the epitome of fast, usable modern classic motoring.
1962 Mercedes 220SE Coupe Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €21,000 - €24,000
Mercedes-Benz debuted four new models at the Frankfurt Show in 1959 - the 220 SEb among them - all of which shared the same basic unitary-construction bodyshell and all-round independent suspension. Longer than their predecessors, these elegant newcomers featured a wider radiator shell, wrap-around windscreen, wider rear window and vertically positioned twin headlamps. The new 220 SEb retained the fuel-injected, single-overhead-camshaft engine of the previous 220 SE, though maximum power of the 2,195cc six was increased by five horsepower to 120bhp (DIN). Top speed was now 107mph with 60mph attainable in under 14 seconds. Coupé and Cabriolet models appeared in 1960 and 1961 respectively, minus the already dated-looking tail fins of the saloon. More modern in style, the luxurious 220 SEb Coupé and Cabriolet were better appointed too, being equipped as standard with a rev counter, leather upholstery, and four-speed automatic transmission with floor-mounted gearchange lever. Front disc brakes were fitted from the start of production, a benefit not enjoyed by the saloon until 1962. By the time production ceased in October 1965, fewer than 17,000 220 SEb Coupé and Cabriolet models had been manufactured, and today these stylish and luxuriously equipped Grand Tourers are highly prized. First registered to Germany in 1962, incredibly this delightful 220SE has had just two owners from new, with the last for c.40 years. The car has been clearly been loved and cared for; the paintwork is damage and rust free, as is the underside of the car. The motor we understand runs very well, and the gearbox changes smoothly. The interior leather is displaying a wonderful patina, and the woodwork appears to be in good condition. Showing 74,000 kms recorded, and finished in ivory white with a black roof and blue leather interior, this is a rare opportunity to own a genuine, highly original, two owner classic Mercedes. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1988 Porsche 930 Turbo Cabriolet Rare Cassis Metallic Turbo Cabriolet Bordeaux Interior Only 77,000 kms from new. Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €120,000 - €140,000
The 930 itself is a rare car. From 1978-1989 less than 15,000 cars were built over an 11-year period. By modern Porsche standards, that’s not a lot of cars at all. And the Cabriolet is, of course, even more rare. It was introduced in February 1987, remaining on sale (and, with the Targa, outliving the original Coupe) until July 1989. Less than 3,000 were built over the three-year period, with the vast majority of them going to the US and Canada. It’s suggested that less than 650 cars were actually sent to Europe.
In 1988, 242 Cabriolets were produced for Europe, compared to 677 Coupes and a meagre 136 Targas. That shows what a find this model is: one of 242 1988-build cars across the whole of Europe. Research would show how many still remain, but you can bet it isn’t 242. 930s are becoming cherished cars now, used less and less as age and historical relevance start to factor heavily on owners’ minds. 930 Cabriolets are even thinner on the ground.
This, then, is a rare opportunity indeed: the chance to buy a genuine 930 Cabriolet. Only 77,000 kms from new in easily the most rare and desirable colour combination of cassis metallic with a Bordeaux interior. Offered with all the relevant paperwork this 930 turbo cabriolet is ready for a new custodian.
1977 Porsche 911S Targa 2.7 Matching numbers example fitted with original Fuchs wheels Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 9117211782
Estimate: €29,000 £ - €34,000
After 1973, it was decided that the 2.4 litre wasn’t really fast enough for the 911, with the impending American emissions standards threatening to slow the model down to the point that ordinary Cadillacs would smoke its droopy tail. The solution: to take the 2.7-litre engine developed for the Carrera RS, detune it a bit, and make it standard across the board. This made the 911 a very usable sports car for all driving conditions. It was only natural that capacity for mainstream production should be increased to 2687cc, which gave a good increase in torque to match the 150bhp of the 911 2.7 Coupe. Impact bumpers were now required to satisfy American law and production ran from 1974 to 1977. Finished in its original factory colour of India Red 027-9-2 with black leatherette interior, seats and black carpet, the chrome detailing around the glass is all in very good condition. Originally a dry states car from California, unlike many of its counterparts this particular example has not been subject to the harsh and humid European climate and as a result, is found in very original condition with its flag style mirrors, chrome detailing and original Porsche Fuchs wheels. Most importantly this highly underrated 911 still retains its matching numbers 2.7 litre engine, and provided with its service history, books and invoices what a fun accessible way to get yourself into the driving seat of a proper 1970’s Porsche!

Chassis Number: DSFG02FG2233
Estimate: €30,000 – €40,000
Built to top-of-the-range Pallas specification, this late-model DS23ie retains its original fuel-injected 2.3-litre engine, which has been overhauled and fitted with a new clutch, and has the rare and desirable five-speed manual gearbox. Other noteworthy features include a metal sunroof and a rare towing hitch. The car was supplied new to Germany, where it enjoyed two owners, and resided in a private collection after the second German ownership. In 2009/2010 the vehicle was fully dismantled and restored with great attention to detail, the work being documented on an accompanying CD. Classic-Data’s accompanying appraisal rates this car as ‘Condition 1’ (Concours), consideration having been given to the numerous new parts used during restoration. These include the seat belts, complete exhaust system, rubber seals, tyres, high quality carpets, boot lining, stainless steel door sills, hydraulic spheres, brakes, water pump, stainless steel indicators, etc, while the fuel tank has been repaired and resealed. The car is finished in the stunning colour combination of copper metallic with beige/cream painted roof, while the restored, original interior is trimmed in brown leather with beige carpets and matching headlining of the finest quality. The current vendor purchased the DS in February of this year. Previously it has formed part of his significant private collection in the UK. Described as ‘very good’ in all departments, this well restored DS is offered with assorted restoration documents.
1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose The only factory Slantnose 930 Turbo in this colour combination. Registration Number: TBA
Estimate: €150,000 - €200,000
What set the 911 Turbo apart from its peers was the relaxed way this stupefying performance was delivered. Comparing the Turbo to similarly quick ‘he-man’ cars, such as the Holman & Moody-tuned Cobra 427 and the Ford GT40, Motor’s Roger Bell reckoned what made the Porsche so different was that it “hurls you forward with similar velocity but in an uncannily quiet and effortless way. To be shoved so hard in the back that you need high-back seats to keep your head on, yet neither to feel nor hear anything more than a muffled hum, is a very odd sensation indeed in a car.” The Turbo’s characteristic flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler had already been seen on the Carrera model, while the interior was the most luxurious yet in a 911, featuring leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. For 1978, the Turbo’s engine was enlarged to 3.3 litres, gaining an inter-cooler in the process; power increased to 300bhp and the top speed of what was the fastest-accelerating road car of its day went up to 160mph. Coming from previous long-term ownership for over two decades this wonderful example is the only factory slantnose turbo to be displayed in this rare colour combination. A lovely example all round this slantnose is ready for a new custodian for the next chapter of its life.
1966 Ford Mustang Convertible 20,000 miles since comprehensive restoration Fitted with more powerful V8 motor. Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €30,000 - €40,000
The Ford Mustang first rolled off the production line in April 1964 and its introduction created a new class of automobile for a new generation of drivers. Aimed at the affluent young, who saw a new car as a lifestyle statement as much as a means of transport, the Mustang could be a gentle town cruiser or an aggressive 130mph bruiser. The car was an instant success having sold over three quarters of a million cars by the end of 1965. The secret to this success was a broad appeal that extended beyond the target market thanks to a great value-for-money package combining sporty looks, decent economy and brisk performance. Mustangs could be ordered in specifications ranging from six-cylinder ‘economy’ to V8-powered muscle and the almost endless options list means that it’s very rare to find two that are the same. Recently this fine example has been the subject of a comprehensive restoration. In good condition throughout the body is straight with good panel gaps, as is the interior which presents very well. Fitted with the desirable and more powerful V8 motor the Mustang on offer is surely one of the best examples currently available.
1963 Porsche 356 Coupe Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 213262
Estimate: €55,000 - €65,000
Introduced in 1948, the Porsche Type 356 is acknowledged to be one of the world’s greatest sports cars. Over a 15-year production run, the handsome and durable 356 evolved from a streamlined little aluminium-bodied coupe powered by a VW-derived, 46bhp 1,100cc air-cooled flat four to a powerful autobahn burner with a 130bhp 2-litre 4-cam boxer Carrera engine. Over time came coupes, luxurious cabriolets and more spartan Speedsters and Roadsters, and more than 76,000 were built by the time production ceased in 1965. By the time the 356B arrived in September 1959, Porsche’s first sports car had gained a one-piece rounded windscreen and 15-inch wheels, along with further styling revisions and a 1,600cc engine. Outwardly very similar to the final 356B, the ultimate 356C model arrived in 1963 sporting disc brakes all round (first seen on the 2-litre Carrera 2), a new ZF steering gear and a compensating spring at the rear to calm the swing axle rear suspension. Engines options were the 75bhp ‘C’ and the 95bhp ‘SC’, both 1,600cc, the latter replacing the Super 90 model. Finished in the stunning combination of signal red with tan interior, this delightful example was delivered new in 1963. It is said to be a very solid original Porsche by the current vendor. All EU duties have been paid on the car.
1982 Ferrari 512 BBi Full Classiche Certification Under 7,000kms from new, European Specification Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFJA09B000043029
Estimate: €225,000 - €250,000
Ferrari’s newest Berlinetta Boxer model was introduced at the 1981 Frankfurt Salon, and although it appeared to be very similar to the outgoing model from a distance, its biggest change was found under the rear clamshell and in the new model’s nomenclature. The 512 BBi replaced the 512 BB’s four Weber carburettors with a Bosh K-Jetronic fuel-injection system, hence the “i” in 512 BBi.
This upgrade proved the 512 BBi to be much more user-friendly, making the car not only easier to start but also easier to maintain. For many clients, the addition of the fuel injection was a welcome change, and the 512 BBi is often considered to be the most liveable of Ferrari’s Berlinetta Boxer models.
The 512 BBi also received a handful of cosmetic updates, including fitting exposed driving lights in the nose, shortening the aluminium egg-crate grille, and fitting rectangular parking lights in a new shroud for the exhaust at the rear. Just 1,007 examples were built from 1981 to 1984, before production transitioned to the Testarossa. This stunning 512BBi presented in Rossa Corsa with tan interior, was delivered new to Germany where it stayed with its original owner until 2000. In the hand of a new owner, the car was exported to Canada. Requiring no modifications to comply with Canadian legislation, it remained in its original European Configuration and covered less than 50kms during its time in Canada, being stored in a well-known Toronto storage facility.
A major service was completed in 2011, which included an engine-out procedure, new clutch assembly, timing belts and tensioners all detailed and at a cost of 16,500 dollars. In 2014 the car was imported and registered in the UK, and has since then been granted full Ferrari Classiche certification that will be available with the car. Having spent very little time on the road, the car is said to present in ‘as new’ condition and performs as it should. Presented in Rosso Corsa with an outstanding tan leather interior showing no signs of wear, this Boxer even retains its original Pioneer Ferrari radio and graphic equaliser! Supplied with the car are its toolkit & jack, owner’s leather book pack and drivers manuals.
1982 Delorean DMC-12 13,000 kilometres from new, and fitted with rare manual gearbox Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €35,000 - €45,000
John Z Delorean’s superb track record as a General Motors Executive was beyond dispute, and it was in large part this reason which convinced the British Government to make huge investment in the plans for the DeLorean Motor Company’s Belfast factory, to build a spectacular new sports car. Contrary to popular opinion he very nearly succeeded; the factory got built, all in the remarkably short period of three years. The innovative stainless steel body and hulling doors were well integrated into a strikingly attractive design by legendary Italian stylist Giorgetto Giugiaro; even today a DMC-12 will stop traffic like few other cars. However, cash flow issues, and a bleak economical climate, sales eventually overwhelmed the company, and forced them into receivership in 1982. This lovely example on offer is fitted with a rare manual gearbox and shows just 13,000Kilometers on the odometer. In good condition throughout this low mileage example is offered with EU tax documentation. This must be one of the best DMC-12s on the market today.
1955 MGTF 1500 Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: HDA467239
Estimate: €30,000 - €40,000
Although MGs had been available in the United States in the 1930s, the marque’s great popularity really began after World War II. The classic TC model, with its large wire wheels, right-hand drive and exposed rear fuel tank, was regarded as the quintessential British sports car. In 1949, the improved TD offered independent front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, disc wheels and left-hand drive for New World markets, and in 1952, MG became the best-selling import in America. After the TD came the TF; the new model was given an evolutionary makeover, with a swept-back radiator grille and more sweeping fenders. Headlamps were nestled into the inner surface of the front fenders. Mechanically, the new TF model was TD-based, using the same XPAG 1,250cc engine, but with valve and carburetor improvements. In mid-1954 a new enlarged XPEG 1500cc motor was fitted making 63hp and the model was now designated the TF 1500. MG’s TF is the final evolution of the T-series, a lineage dating back to the TA of 1936. The inherent rightness of MG’s concept when designing the TA is evident in the long life enjoyed by the T-series, and in the effect these cars had in the years just after World War II, when they formed the foundation for the sports car movement in America. First registered in 1955, this lovely TF has been comprehensively restored more recently and is now presented beautifully in its original and rare shade of SIlver Metallic with a black leather interior. Mechanically we understand the MG is in fine order and drives very nicely with the more powerful 1500cc motor. All in all a beautiful sports car and a real treat for the next owner.
1958 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider 750D Ist Series Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €80,000 - €90,000
“The Alfa, in a few words then, is a small car with a rev-happy DOHC engine that can carry two people from point A to point B over all types of roads quicker than most cars twice its size. It does this not with blinding speed but with a wonderful combination of roadholding, compact size and sheer willingness” – Car & Driver on the Giulietta. With the introduction of the Giulietta in 1954, Alfa Romeo established the ‘small car, big performance’ formula that would characterize its finest offerings from that point on. The Giulietta’s arrival caused a sensation; demand quickly outstripped supply, causing Alfa Romeo to rethink its production strategy and become a highvolume manufacturer. Designed by Pinin Farina on a modified Sprint Coupe chassis, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider was the company’s second post-war model. The little two-seat Sports Spider was introduced in 1955 at the insistence of New York importer Max Hoffman, who saw how well small British and German sports cars were being received in America. The Giulietta Spider offered brisk performance (almost 100 mph) from its free-revving, all-alloy, 1.3-liter twin-cam four, mounted in a steel unibody chassis that weighed less than 1900lbs at the curb. The design was unmistakably Pinin Farina – very elegant, sporting and lithe. From the time of their introduction, both the Sprint and Spider provided an exhilarating combination of character and performance, within the limits of what was possible with the well-designed twin-cam engine. However, as with pre-war Alfa Romeos, the dealers soon saw a demand for an uprated version for buyers with competition in mind. In 1956, the Giulietta Sprint and Spider Veloces duly appeared, with high-performance engines and modified bodywork. High-crown pistons raised the compression ratio to 9.1:1 which, with a pair of twin-choke Weber carburetors and more peaky camshaft profiles, raised the power by about 15%. Performance was certainly improved, with a top speed of 115mph and a more responsive engine through and through. Just 2,796 Giulietta Spider Veloces were produced, and they remain among the most collectible of the model today. This matching numbers example is finished in black over red and is in excellent condition. We are informed that the bright work is in equally good order. Mechanically the car comes with a large history file and is described as being mechanically perfect, with a big service just been carried out as well as chrome. A very early 1st series car , which are the most desirable amongst the Alfa Romeo cognoscenti Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1988 Porsche 944 Turbo Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 150741
Estimate: €15,000 - €17,000
For the 1985 model year, Porsche introduced the 944 Turbo, known internally as the 951. This had a turbocharged and intercooled version of the standard car’s engine that produced 217 bhp at 6000 rpm. The turbo was the first car using a ceramic port liner to retain exhaust gas temperature and new forged pistons, and was also the first vehicle to produce identical power output with or without a catalytic converter. The Turbo also featured several other changes, such as improved aerodynamics, notably an integrated front bumper. This featured a strengthened gearbox with a different final drive ratio, standard external oil coolers for both the engine and transmission, standard 16 inch wheels, and a slightly stiffer suspension to handle the extra weight. The Turbo’s front and rear brakes were borrowed from the Porsche 911, with Brembo 4-piston fixed calipers and 12-inch discs as ABS also came standard. This Alpine White 944 is offered in original condition, with almost all first paint which is in very good condition, and a nice supple black leather interior. If you have never owned a 944 Turbo then we can highly recommend them; performance equal to a 911, better handling, a fantastic punchy motor and a very comfortable place to be for long journeys. Offered with bills for previous maintenance and repairs, this good example offers superb value in the current marketplace.
1959 Mercedes 220S Ponton 71,000 kilometres from new, comprehensive restoration in 2016. Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: €20,000 - €25,000
Mercedes-Benz reintroduced six-cylinder models to its range in 1951 with the 220 and 300 types, both of which were shown at the Frankfurt Show in the spring of that year. Both featured single overhead camshaft engines with the valves set across the head, rather than in line, and actuated by rockers. The 220 was powered by a 2,195cc six-cylinder engine producing 80bhp at 4,600rpm, good enough for a top speed of 100mph with acceleration to match, while the gearbox was an all-synchromesh four-speeder with column change. A separate chassis was retained for these models, which were replaced in 1956 by a new range featuring unitary construction bodyshells employing large, box-section sidemembers – hence the term ‘Ponton’. All-round coil-sprung independent suspension had long been a fixture of the Mercedes-Benz range, and that of the newcomers benefited from the newly developed single-pivot rear swing axle. A shorter wheelbase was adopted for the cabriolet model that appeared in May 1956 and also for the coupé introduced the following year when the Hydrak semiautomatic transmission become available as an option. Luxuriously equipped in the best Daimler-Benz tradition, these superbly constructed Gran Turismos were priced some 70% above the 220S saloon. This lovely 220S Ponton was subject to much restoration work in recent years, resulting in what is now a fantastic looking example. Said to be in good driving condition and with a very modest 71,000 Kilometres from new this must be one of the best examples available on the open market.
