(b) The Seller has complied with all requirements relating to any export or import of the Lot as may be required, and has notified Coys in writing of any failure to comply with such requirements by the Seller or any previous owner of the Lot; (c) The Seller has notified Coys in writing of any material alterations to the Lot of which the Seller is aware and of any concerns expressed by third parties in relation to the authenticity, provenance, origin, age, condition or quality of the Lot and has provided Coys with all such information in the Seller’s possession; (d) In the case of a Motor Vehicle which may be lawfully used on a public road, complies with all statutory provisions and that there is in force any test certificate required by law in relation to such use, or the Seller has notified Coys in writing that any such vehicle cannot lawfully be used on a public road; (e) The Seller warrants that the information about the Lot given to Coys, including (for the avoidance of doubt and without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing) all information set out in the Auction Entry Form, and statements made about it, is true 7.2 The Seller of a Lot not in the possession of Coys on its premises or under its control warrants and undertakes that the Lot will be available and in a deliverable state on demand by the Buyer; . 7.3 The Seller hereby acknowledges that Coys has entered into this contract in reliance on the representations set out in Conditions 7.1(a) to (e) and the information set out in the Auction Entry Form. 7.4 The Seller shall indemnify Coys against any and all actions, claims, actual costs (including legal and expert costs, fees and disbursements), demands, expenses, fines, liabilities, losses, penalties and proceedings arising out of the falsity of any of the warranties and representations set out in Conditions 7.1(a) to (f). 7.5. 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in writing to the Seller decline to sell the Lot, and the Seller shall be liable to Coys as though the Seller had withdrawn the lot from sale without Coys consent. If the Lot is in the possession of Coys, it may retain it until any sums due to Coys are paid, the cost of storage being borne by the Seller. 7.6 The Seller shall further indemnify Coys in respect of any actual legal or other costs reasonably incurred by it in investigating any claim concerning the ownership of a Lot and/or the Seller’s right to sell the Lot, the accuracy of the description of the Lot contained in the Catalogue or in defending any claim relating thereto, and Coys shall be entitled to withhold the amount of such costs from any payment due to be made to the Seller in accordance with Condition 2.
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. Coys, its agents or employees shall not be responsible for any defaults beyond Coys’ control relating to telephone, fax or other absentee bids including without limitation any telecommunications fault or failure. 18. 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. PAYMENT OF SALE PROCEEDS 20.1 Unless otherwise agreed in writing by both Coys and the Seller, the Buyer shall pay Coys forthwith and in any event no later than 35 days from the Auction the Purchase Price. 20.2. 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.

If the Buyer fails or refuses to pay the Purchase Price in full within 35 days of the Auction, Coys will notify the Seller who may instruct Coys as to the appropriate course of action, including (where permitted under Clause 21.2) but not limited to one or more of the courses of action set out in Condition 21.4 below. 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.

1964 Renault 8 Major Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 3005606
Estimate: £8,000 - £12,000
The Renault 8 (Renault R8 until 1964) and Renault 10 are two rear-engined, rear-wheel drive small family cars produced by the French manufacturer Renault in the 1960’s and early 1970’s. The R8 (model R1130) was released in June 1962 and was based on the Renault Dauphine with which it shared its basic architecture and its 2,270 mm wheelbase. The style, closely following that of the first prototype produced, at unusually short notice, by Philippe Charbonneaux, was fashionably boxy; however, while the Renault 8 was actually 30 mm narrower than the Dauphine, the manufacturer was able to install thick cushioned front seats that were actually each wider than that of the Dauphine. The R8’s engine followed the pioneering example of the recently introduced Renault 4 by incorporating a sealed for life cooling system. A distinctive innovation on the French produced cars was the fitting of four-wheel disc brakes, a first for a saloon car of this size. The R8 Major (model R1132), was released in 1964, featuring an 1,108cc engine developing 49bhp. This wonderful Renault 8 Major is described to be in very original condition and running well. The car has benefitted from a recent flurry of work including all new EBC brake pads, all four brake callipers rebuilt with original parts and an original new master cylinder. The interior has been refurbished and the exterior has received a full respray. The car benefits from the original automatic choke and pressurised cooling system and is showing a mere 23,200kms on the odometer. A truly lovely example of this chic French saloon.

1977 BMW E12 520 27,000 miles from new - Rare Right Hand-Drive example In excellent condition throughout Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 5045081
Estimate: ÂŁ7,000 - ÂŁ9,000
The BMW E12 is the first generation of BMW 5 Series mid-size luxury sedans, which was produced from June 1972 to 1981. It replaced the New Class sedans and the initial models were powered by inline-4 engines, using either a carburettor or fuel-injection. A year after launch, the first model powered by a straight-6 engine was introduced. The E12 models transitioned towards straight-6 engines, with most of the models in the final years of the E12 generation being powered by a straight-6 engine. Offered in excellent condition throughout, this wonderful low-mileage example was supplied new to LYC of Tunbridge Wells on the 1st of January 1978. The first owner kept the car until 2008 servicing it regularly at BMW until 25,076 miles. Now reading 26,950 miles, as you would expect of a car with such low mileage, it is found in superb order and has a lovely solid feel of BMW of old. Recently fitted with new tyres, also included in the sale of this rare Right HandDrive example is an extensive history file. This along-side its remarkable condition, is a true testament to the cars fastidious custodianship.

1990 Porsche 964 Carrera 2 Cabriolet Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WP0ZZZ96ZLS422991
Estimate: £32,000 - £37,000
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. Finished in Linen Grey (L550) with a full Cream and Blue leather interior this UK supplied example was first registered on the 1st August 1990 and has had just five keepers from new. It is in good order and has a fantastic service history file. The service book comes complete with 16 stamps from Porsche main dealers and specialists. In addition, there are a very large number of bills which include a clutch replacement at 70,000 miles. Both receipts and MoT certificates suggest that a total mileage of C.78,250 miles have been covered from new. This fantastic example is offered with a sizeable history file and is ready to be used in the coming summer months. Estimate:

1949 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Custom “Cad Attack” by Greg Westbury Ex Sam Pack Collection. Featured twice on the cover of Custom Rodder magazine Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: 496273028
Estimate: £30,000 - £50,000
“Cad Attack,” as this car is known, was built by noted customizer Greg Westbury for his father, and it is a remarkable custom Cadillac, one that has been the feature of multiple magazines. It is a custom in the truest sense of the word, as nearly every facet of the automobile has been tailored, yet the car still retains its Cadillac identity. Cad Attack leads with a ’79 Seville front clip that has been expertly grafted to the original , and it incorporates handcrafted ladder bars, Carrera coil-overs, and a Currie rear end. Mechanically, the power is supplied via a 454-cubic inch engine that has been modified with a RV camshaft and Edelbrock carburetor and intake, and it is mated to an updated 700-R4 automatic transmission. Beautiful Wilwood disc brakes are on all four corners to provide excellent stopping ability. The remarkable hand-crafted body is highlighted by the simply stunning Carsonstyle removable cloth-covered chopped hardtop, a one-piece custom windshield, Mercedes-Benz headlamps, 1991 Cadillac tail lamps, a single blade custom grille. This coupled with the ’56 Chevy front and rear bumpers with an integrated license plate holder really set the car off. Other fine touches, including modified wheel arches, panel gap alterations, an extended hood, and shaved trim, all serve to highlight the custom coachwork. Finally, massive 18-inch and 20-inch Foose wheels that are wrapped in Z-rated BFGoodrich tires complete the exterior.
1970 Fiat 500 Giannini Turismo Veloce Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £13,000 - £16,000
Founded in 1920 by the Giannini brothers - Attilio and Domenico - as a garage, the company began tuning the little FIAT 500 Topolino in the 1930s and secured 12 world speed records with one of its modified cars. In the early 1960s the original company closed, the brothers going their separate ways to found new enterprises. Attilio’s new design company lasted only until 1971 but that founded by Domenico - Giannini Automobili SpA - survives today as part of the FIAT Group. In 1963 Giannini Automobili began modifying cars and selling tuning kits. That same year it introduced its own modified version of the baby FIAT - the 500TV - and throughout the decade and into the 1970s Giannini-tuned cars battled with those of its rival Abarth on the racetracks of Europe. In 1966 Maurizio Zanetti became Italian Champion driving a Gianninituned FIAT 500. In more recent years Giannini has specialised in the production of limited-edition versions of FIAT production models. This highly collectible matching numbers Giannini 500 TV (Turismo Veloce) was first registered in July 1970 in Italy. In more recent times the Fiat has benefitted from a comprehensive restoration, the 499cc engine has been rebuilt, and features a number of Giannini modifications including a modified cylinder head and camshaft, special exhaust and a Weber carburettor. Offered with a UK V5 document and MOT, the little 500 is said to drive very nicely indeed. Finished in its original colour scheme of White with Black trim, this is an excellent example of a rare and desirable variant of Fiat’s defining city car.
1992 Porsche 964 Carrera 2 Turbo Body Cabriolet Original turbo body Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ96ZN5451208
Estimate: £40,000 – £50,000
The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson through January 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and allwheel drive as options. The 964 was considered to be 85% new as compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2. The first 964s available in 1989 were all-wheel drive equipped “Carrera 4” models; Porsche added the rear wheel drive Carrera 2 variant to the range in 1990. Both variants were available as a coupe, Targa or Cabriolet. A new naturally aspirated engine called the M64 was used for 964 models, with a flat-6 displacement of 3.6 litres. Porsche substantially revised the suspension, replacing torsion bars with coil springs and shock absorbers. Power steering and ABS brakes were added to the 911 for the first time; both were standard. The exterior bumpers and fog lamps became flush with the car for better aerodynamics. A new electric rear spoiler raised at speeds above 50 mph (80 km/h) and lowered down flush with the rear engine lid at lower speeds or at rest. Performance was brisk to say the least, with a top speed of 261 km/h. The example on offer is a rare turbo bodied model of which just 1200 were produced worldwide. Presented in its original colour combination and in very good all-round condition the 964 is offered with a comprehensive history file including a full-service history from Porsche specialists which is documented in the Porsche service booklet. Showing a mere C.54,000 miles on the odometer the car is ready to be used.
1973 Jaguar E Type V 12 Roadster Original UK RHD car with matching numbers. Registration Number: UK Registererd
Chassis Number: 1S1892BW
Estimate: £70,000- £90,000
It was in 1971 that Jaguar introduced the Series III of their 20th Century classic E-Type, with the Walter Hassan/Harry Mundy-developed 5.3-liter SOHC V12 engine which became an industry standard for its combination of smoothly unobtrusive torque and power. With the large cross-slatted radiator grille – described by Motor Sport magazine as “a decorative birdcage” – flared wheel arches accommodating wider track and bigger tires, plus V12 nomenclature adorning the tail, these Series III cars continued all the American Federal Regulations features of the preceding Series II models while also adopting uprated brakes and power steering as standard. From the new Series launch in 1971 to the end of production in 1975, some 15,200 were manufactured. Built in 1973, the sensational example of Jaguar’s legendary V12 E-Type offered here left the Browns Lane Jaguar Works configured in right hand drive with a desirable automatic gearbox. The V12 series III types were the last and most refined of the breed. The powerful V12 offered a smoothness that was seldom found in other vehicles of the day. Fitted with power steering comfortable seats and excellent brakes, V12 E Types became true grand touring vehicles. Finished in red coachwork with tan leather interior, and a wonderful wooden moto-lita steering wheel, the car has just been subjected to a restoration with new floorplans, full repaint and new chrome work. This delightful V12 comes with 12 months MOT.
Property of a Gentleman 1934 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Sports Saloon by Hooper In single ownership for over 50 years Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: GWE 7
Estimate: £20,000 - £25,000
Over the past eight decades the 20/25HP Rolls-Royce has earned an enviable reputation of being among the most dependable, satisfying and highest-quality pre-war models of all. Produced from 1929 to 1935, it represented the Marque’s determined effort to move away from massive formal cars, routinely chauffeur-driven, to the newly-fashionable owner-driver market for the wealthy private owner-driver. Of course it embodied Crewe’s routine programme of continuous mechanical development and improvement throughout its run, but the fundamentals of its superbly-crafted three and a half litre straight six driving through a four speed gearbox of amazing refinement remained the same. By the late 1920s the trend for ever-heavier coachwork on the Rolls-Royce 20 HP had inevitably had a detrimental effect on performance. Rolls-Royce’s solution was to increase the comparatively small six cylinder engine’s capacity from just over three litres to 3,699cc which, together with a stronger crankshaft allowing increased rpm, raised its output to 25hp. As with the 20 HP, the 20/25 was warmly received and proved immensely popular, soon more than doubling sales of the big Phantom II. Various detail improvements were made to the 20/25 during its seven year production life including rises in compression ratio in 1930 and 1932; the latter year also saw the introduction of synchromesh for the third and fourth gear ratios, thermostatically controlled radiator grille shutters, a one-shot centralised lubrication system and an electric fuel gauge. The lovely 20/25 offered here, finished in two tone Black over Grey, was delivered new in September of 1934 to Hooper of Park Royal in London, where it was fitted with Sports Saloon bodywork and despatched to dealer Hemslow Limited of Leicester. The Hooper spent the first 30 years of its life in the Cambridgeshire area before being purchased by our vendor in 1967. Now forming part of a small Rolls-Royce collection, the 20/25 has been maintained well over the years, and used for weekend drives and the occasional wedding duty. In private ownership for over 50 years and offered with an original buff log book, this is a very original example of this delightfully proportioned Sports Saloon. 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.
1991 Honda NSX Rare Right Hand Drive Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: NA11000986
Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000
The legendary Honda NSX (standing for New Sportscar Experimental) was developed by the Honda Motor Corporation between 1984 and its eventual launch in 1990, with major chassis and suspension input from three times F1 World Champion, Ayrton Senna. The NSX featured a state of the art 3.0-litre V6 ‘VTEC’ engine (variable valve timing) and an all-aluminium monocoque body, encompassing a revolutionary extruded aluminium alloy frame and suspension. This made the car extremely light and extremely strong. Other game-changing features included 4 channel ABS brakes, titanium connecting rods in the engine and later in the model’s life – an electric power steering system as well as an upgrade to a 3.2-litre V6 engine. The car was the first real Japanese ‘Supercar’, proving itself and quickly establishing respect from its key competitors. Production continued right up until 2005, with only subtle changes made throughout its life. Finished in Sebring Silver with contrasting black leather, this beautifully maintained NSX has recently been taken to Honda for a full 96 point inspection, as well as road test to ensure that any and all minor faults were rectified as well as giving the car a thorough service. New coolant, gearbox oil as well as an engine service was included. Additionally the car has had its cambelt’s changed as well as having new rocker gaskets fitted. Fitted with the Type-R bonnet. This on-the-button example was purchased by its current custodian from a friend who worked for McLaren and was relocating to Spain at the time. Knowing how much fun the car was to drive, we are told it was an easy decision and the car has brought its current custodian to many local events such as Goodwood, Beaulieu and Wilton. Sadly, due to yet another house move, this NSX is regretfully back on the market. Being offered for sale for a very honest reason and described to be in good to excellent condition in all respects, this represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase one of the world’s most recognisable supercars are a very realistic price.
1998 Ferrari 456GTM Recent £7,000 expenditure by Marque Specialists Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFWP50JPN0113831
Estimate: £28,000- £35,000 NO RESERVE
Not since the 412’s demise in 1989 had Ferrari offered a ‘2+2’, and when the 456 GT debuted at the Paris Salon in October 1992 it was obvious that the long awaited newcomer eclipsed all Maranello’s previous four-seat Grand Tourers. Although new from stem to stern, the 456 GT incorporated elements familiar to generations of Ferrari cognoscenti - front-mounted four-cam V12, rear transaxle, tubular steel spaceframe chassis and all-independent suspension - while making an appearance for the first time were electronically-controlled adaptive suspension and a six-speed gearbox (there was also an optional automatic). Essentially a de-tuned version of that powering the 550 and 575, the new 5.5-litre V12 unleashed no less than 442bhp at a lowly 6,250rpm yet remained smooth and tractable from idling speed to red-line thanks to its state-of-the-art engine management system. F40 excepted, the 456 was the most powerful road car developed by Ferrari up to that time, yet despite delivering supercar performance this relatively unstressed engine has proven to be very reliable. For the 456, Pininfarina worked its magic once more to create a subtly beautiful curvaceous body contrasting with the hard edges of its predecessor. Although bereft of extraneous aerodynamic devices, the 456 remained stable up to its maximum of around 190mph, a figure that made it the world’s fastest production four-seater passenger car. Acclaimed on its debut, the 456’s styling has not dated and is a tribute to Pininfarina’s farsightedness in creating one of most successful designs of modern times. An air-conditioned interior, sumptuous Connolly leather trim, perfectly weighted power steering and Porsche-rivalling build quality all combined to make the 456GT a worthy competitor for Bentley, Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz. This rare and sought after right hand drive example is finished in a wonderful and unusual colour combination. The Ferrari has been used sparingly, and has, for its most recent history formed part of a collection of Ferraris in Surrey. Maintained by marque specialists, and as one would expect is described by the vendor as in generally good condition having had over £7,000 spent on it this year. With useable room in the rear, the 456 GT is one of the most practical of Ferrari Grand Tourers; the majority on offer boast relatively high ‘mileages’ so a little used and well looked after example such as this is truly a rare find. 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.
1997 Aston Martin DB7 Coupe Owned by the former AMOC Club Secretary Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SCFAA1113TK100697
Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000
Introduced to the public in 1993, the handsome new DB7 was Aston Martin’s first six cylinder model since production of the DB6 Mk. II ended in 1971. Styled by Ian Callum, its lines were evocative of earlier Aston Martin models and elements of the DB4/5/6 could be seen in its design. Arguably one of the most attractive looking cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB7 was well received and attracted new customers worldwide with its traditional layout, curvaceous two door coupé body and a powerful six cylinder engine. This lovely example has been with the current vendor for the last 11 years and was owned by the Aston Martin Club Secretary (Diane Howe) prior to his ownership. Needless to say, the car presents in very good order with a history file that can only be described as exhaustive. A rare manual model, this DB7 looks wonderful in Cheviot Red and contrasting Parchment interior, which shows a delightful patina. A superbly original car that has been owned by true enthusiasts and would be a credit to any collector.
1970 Mustang Mach 1 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: OT05H137353
Estimate: £28,000 - £35,000
1969 was the benchmark year for Ford Mustang in its proliferation of performance names and engines. No fewer than six factory performance Mustang models were available (GT, Boss 302, Boss 429, Shelby GT350, Shelby GT500 and the Mach 1). Additionally, seven variations of V-8s were available in the ‘69–’70 models; most of these also available in the new Mach 1. The Mach 1 started with a V8 powered ‘Sportsroof’ body and added numerous visual and performance enhancing items such as matte black hood treatment with hood pins, hood scoop (including optional Shaker scoop), competition suspension, chrome pop-open gas cap, revised wheels with Goodyear Polyglas tires, chrome exhaust tips, deluxe interior, livery and dealer optional chin spoiler, rear deck spoiler, and rear window louvers. Standard on Mach 1’s was a fierce but cosmetic hood scoop that had integrated turn-signal lights mounted in the back. A more functional option was the signature “Shaker hood”, an air scoop mounted directly to the top of the motor, used to collect fresh air and so named for its tendency to “shake” above the rumbling V8 below. The interior came complete with teak wood grain details, full sound deadening material and high-back sport bucket seats. In 1969 endurance driver Mickey Thompson took three Mach 1 Mustangs to the Bonneville salt flats for a feature in Hot Rod magazine, in the process setting 295 speed and endurance records over a series of 500-mile and 24-hour courses. This 1970 H Code Mustang Mach 1 comes with the 351 Windsor engine which has been stroked to 408 cubic inches by drag racing specialist Dave Billadeau. The estimated 300bhp (as tested on a rolling road in November 2017) is put down through a 4 speed top loader manual transmission with Hurst Shifter. We understand that the car underwent a full restoration circa. 2010 prior to the current vendor obtaining the car and there is an exhaustive list of extras and expense which has been lavished on the car. This can be seen in the extensive history file and the car also benefits from being authenticated with a Marti report. A wonderful example of this true American muscle car and presented in excellent condition throughout, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a well sorted and appreciating classic. 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.

Estimate: £35,000 - £45,000
A ‘modern classic’ if ever there was one, Porsche’s long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter’s rearengine 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 displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. Porsche’s first take on a 911 convertible had been the Targa model of 1965, a ‘halfway house’ design chosen because of fears that a genuine soft-top would not meet US Federal safety regulations, but by 1981 the company felt able to proceed with the genuine article. Introduced in normally aspirated 3.0-litre form in 1982, the 911 Cabriolet lost little, if any, rigidity with the deletion of the Targa roll-over bar, while its speedily raised/lowered top featured a detachable, zip-fastened rear window. Introducing a ‘proper’ soft-top proved to be a shrewd move by Porsche, as sales immediately exceed those of the Targa version, and the popular Cabriolet continued when the ‘Carrera’ name was applied to all 911 models in 1983, coincidentally with the introduction of the 3.2-litre engine. Not merely enlarged, the new engine was also extensively revised and produced 231bhp, 27 horsepower up on its predecessor. The 911 Carrera’s top speed was now 152mph, with 100mph reachable in a breath-taking 13.6 seconds. This example on offer is presented in its original colour combination and is presented in good all-round order. The panels and bodywork are straight and the engine runs well. Offered with full service history and a valid mot. Ready for a new custodian.
1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster Only c.49,000 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WDBBA48D8HA060195
Estimate: £19,000 - £24,000
Manufactured by Mercedes since 1954, the Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster is a great sportscar. The designation SL derives from the German Sport Leicht (or Sport Lightweight), and was first applied to the 300 SL, often referred to as the ‘Gullwing’. All updated 86-89 models have the advantages of the more modern 4 pot brakes, larger discs, and suspension derived from the W124 sedan. The body itself is built with a modern paint system designed to improve protection from rust. However this was not effective as models still continued to rust especially around the wheel arches, sills, jacking points, floor and front wings; especially the drill holes on which the mudflaps are mounted and the sides facing the engine bay. The 560SL was only sold in the USA, Canada, Japan, and Australia to compensate the reduced output of the 5.0L due to the stricter emission laws in these markets. Sold by Coys to the current owner in 2015, the car was then taken to Spain where it received regular yet sparing use by his family. Purchased with a mere c48,000 miles from new, the odometer now reads just over 49,000 miles. Offered with a hard-top, all sets of keys, extensive history file and handbook. This is a full option car in beautiful condition; the paint is mostly original, it has never been restored, and would represent for any buyer a superb investment for the future at a relatively small outlay. A beautifully looked-after and unrestored example described by the owner to be in excellent condition throughout.
1960 Austin Healey 100/6 BN7 2 Seater Recent significant restoration Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: BN7
Estimate: £45,000- £50,000
After a really gruelling road test, I can say that this new sports model is ideal for Continental touring. It also stood up to lap after lap of the Nürburgring at racing speeds, without complaint, and that must be equivalent to a vast mileage under more humane conditions. Finally, it has the kind of appearance that will make many prospective purchasers reach for their check books.’ - John Bolster on the Austin-Healey 100/6, Autosport, 12th October 1956. Introduced for 1956, the 100/6 represented the most radical step forward in the Big Healey’s development. Despite its initial success, sales of the original Austin-Healey 100 had begun to decline by the mid-1950s and so the model was revamped as the ‘100/6’, BMC’s 2.6-liter C-series six replacing the original four-cylinder Austin Atlantic engine. At the same time the wheelbase was lengthened from 7’ 6” to 7’ 8”, which enabled the inclusion of two occasional seats in the rear of the BN4 variant. In 100-6 tune, the pushrod six produced 102bhp - 12bhp more than its predecessor - though the inevitable weight gain meant that there was little if any improvement in performance, the car’s top speed remaining at 103mph or thereabouts. Although stylistically very similar to the preceding 100, the 100/6 was nevertheless easily distinguishable by its ‘crinkle’ radiator grille and bonnet-top air intake. In 1957 an improved six-port engine became available, and this 117bhp unit was fitted to all the newly introduced BN6 two-seater roadsters. Top speed improved to 111mph and 1.7 seconds was cut from the 0-60mph time. This very handsome car is an original US delivered Two Seater Austin-Healey 100/6. As verified by its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate the car was delivered new through a New York agency. It was originally supplied as you see it here today, in the definitively classic colour combination of Healey Blue over Ivory White with blue trim and top. Now offered for sale it is this custodian who is responsible for the beautiful condition in which it is found today, beautifully restored and a ‘well sorted’ car. Well-documented and recorded in photographs, the exacting work returned the Healey to its original two tone colour, and refinished the car just as it would have emerged from the factory, only almost certainly to a higher quality finish. Overall, an accurately restored example of the model in archetypal Healey livery.
1987 Porsche 911 Sports Coupe Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £35,000- £45,000
A ‘modern classic’ if ever there was one, Porsche’s long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter’s rear-engine 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. In its first incarnation, Porsche’s single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than three litres and, in turbo-charged form, would put out well over 300 horsepower. This SC Coupe was completed at Porsche in 1982. According to the Certificate of Authenticity issued, the car was finished from new in the rare shade of Zinc Metallic. Most recently it has formed part of an Ex-Le Mans Porsche Works driver’s collection and is now being offered to the open market for the first time. Ever popular for their enjoyable driving experience, ease of maintenance, and near bulletproof reliability when well prepared and maintained, these 911 Sports Coupes still offer a phenomenal driving experience at a very approachable value.
1962 Jaguar E-type Series 1 Flat floor Roadster Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 876573
Estimate: £120,000- £150,000
Here we have one of the quietest and most flexible cars on the market, capable of whispering along in top gear at 10mph or leaping into its 150mph stride on the brief depression of a pedal. A practical touring car, this, with its wide doors and capacious luggage space, yet it has a sheer beauty of line which easily beats the Italians at their own particular game.’ There have been few better summaries of the Jaguar E-Type’s manifest virtues than John Bolster’s, penned for Autosport shortly after the car’s debut in 1961. Introduced in 3.8-litre form, the E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared, with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. The newcomer’s design owed much to that of the racing D-Type: a monocoque tub forming the main structure, while a tubular spaceframe extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor ‘S’ unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. An optimistic 265bhp was claimed, but whatever the installed horsepower, the E-Type’s performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 500lb (227kg) less than the XK150 and secondly because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. Taller drivers though, could find the interior somewhat lacking in space, a criticism addressed by the introduction of foot wells (and other, more minor, modifications) early in 1962. But of all the versions of Jaguar’s long-lived and muchloved sports car, it is the very early ‘flat floor’ 3.8-litre cars built prior to February 1962 which, for many enthusiasts, remain the most desirable. The vendor has known 876573 since it was sourced by John Seddon of Ivydene Garage, Betley, Crewe in the early 1990’s and recently had the pleasure of re-acquainting himself with the car. 876573 is a very original car bar the conversion to RHD and a re-paint in recent years. It bears the original engine, with clear head stamps, block stamps R2993-9 and importantly block casting date 10-7-61 that cannot be replicated and associated casting marks for a 1961 block. A genuine chassis plate, a 1/62 dated wiper motor and other date stamped components, correct size font picture frame stamp add to the car’s authenticity. The bodytub is very original and though the underside of the car was not ramp inspected sills, driver / passenger floors, boot floor, bonnet and doors were largely as left the factory and not replacements as far as the vendor could see. Interestingly this chassis number falls within the now acknowledged ‘flat floor’ cars that recognized sources now agree end at 876581, yet this car has recessed floors? This may have been a customer build preference from the factory but in part may explain a body number anomaly with the tag in the boot that shows body No R2911 as opposed to R2922 shown on the genuine chassis plate and factory records. Such chassis plate / factory record anomalies are not unusual. Mueller/Haddock note a number of these in their recent book Jaguar E-Type Six Cylinder Originality Guide (P.438) including 875738 and 875954. Similarly, CMC recently had on sale 850092 a genuine unrestored car at the London Classic Car Show with a body tag / chassis plate anomaly. Mechanically the car is strong with a VSE engine full rebuild and visibly it could be seen the rear axle had been overhauled. As can be seen from the pictures in the cars file with some fettling the car could be made very presentably with tidying of the hood and interior and some under bonnet detailing without destroying this cars originality. A Wonderful example of an early E-type ready to be used and enjoyed.
1969 Porsche 911T 2.0 Litre coupe Over £20,000 recent expenditure. Matching Numbers Registration Number: UK registered
Chassis Number: 119123429
‘The 911 is the best Porsche ever – all the vices of the old suspension have been eliminate, and the modern offbeat styling should have a much broader appeal than the old bathtub shape. The overhead-cam, air-cooled flat 6-cylinder engine, the 5-speed all-synchro transmission, and the 4-wheel disc brakes are irresistible to anybody who ever felt a flicker of desire for any Porsche in the past.’ – Car & Driver. 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. Easily distinguishable by its stylish Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels, the ‘S’ featured a heavily revised engine producing 160bhp. In 1967 the 911T (Touring) was introduced as a new base model, initially with the 2.0-litre engine in 110bhp form before gaining the 2.2-litre unit along with the rest of the range in 1969, by which time the 911’s wheelbase had been extended by 57mm to tame the sometimes wayward handling. Such was the 911’s success that within a few years Porsche was selling cars faster than it could build them, a state of affairs that led to a substantial proportion being manufactured by coachbuilder Karmann at its Osnabrück factory. Sympathetically restored over 2016 and 2017 back to its original Porsche specification of sand beige with black leatherette basket weave interior it is presented in excellent overall condition. A Californian car until 2015, the engine has also been subject to much work, including a top end rebuild and a new oil pump. Complete with Porsche certificate of authenticity confirming matching numbers and recent work totally over £20,000 it is MoT’d until January 2016.
1987 Bentley Turbo R 27,000 miles, one family ownership Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SCBZSOT04HCH21399
Estimate: £14,000- £18,000
‘The Turbo R has something that no other manufacturer can emulate: an unmistakable and deeply ingrained quality. Inside, whether at the wheel or reclining in the rear chairs, the aura is unique. This is a jewel of a motorcar, crafted to stand the test of time.’ – Sports Car International. Introduced at Geneva in 1985, the Turbo R continued the modern ‘Blower Bentley’ theme, but with the added refinement of suspension better suited to the car’s increased performance. Outwardly the R differed from the preceding Mulsanne Turbo by virtue of its cast-alloy wheels shod with low-profile Pirelli tyres, while inside there was a revised fascia with rev-counter included amongst the comprehensive instrumentation. In a break with Rolls-Royce tradition, power figures were made public for the first time, revealing that the engine produced 320bhp and a staggering 475lb/ft of torque, which on the road translated into a 0-60mph time of around 7 seconds and a top speed of 143mph. Described by Autocar magazine as ‘an outrageous concoction of sledgehammer performance and sybaritic luxury’, the Turbo R remains as formidable now as when it debuted more than 20 years ago. This 1987 model-year Turbo is showing a mere 27,000 miles from new and comes with a full service history from Jack Barclay, along with the service books, original sales invoice and manuals. Though the V5 displays four owners we are advised that the car is one family ownership from new, making it a very special car indeed. Its wonderful deep Ocean coachwork over parchment interior is presented in very good order indeed. MoT’d until September 2018 this year this wonderful example is ready for its next custodian.
Ref 42 2009 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano Offered with full Ferrari service history Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFFD60T090166979
Estimate: £75,000 - £85,000
Introduced at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show, the 599 GTB Fiorano took its name from Ferrari’s famous test track and was the latest in a succession of models named after places associated with the marque such as Modena and Maranello. Having favored the mid-engined layout for its 12-cylinder road cars from the mid-1970s to the late 1990s, Ferrari surprised everyone by introducing the 550 Maranello. The latter’s arrival in 1997 saw the Italian manufacturer return to its tradition of building front-engined V-12 two-seater sports cars, resurrecting a line that had remained dormant since the demise of the 365 GTB/4 ‘Daytona’ in 1974. The 599 was the latest in this noble line that stretched all the way back to the 250GT of the early 1960s. In designing the 599, Ferrari abandoned the tubular steel chassis of the 550/575, adopting a more advanced and lighter all-aluminum chassis of greatly increased stiffness. Styled by Pininfarina under the direction of Ferrari’s Frank Stephenson, the 599 with its long bonnet, small cabin, raised haunches and aggressive stance seemed the very definition of the term ‘sports car’. The heart of any Ferrari is its engine, and the 599’s 48-valve, 6.0-litre V12 was a reworked version of that found in the Enzo supercar. Developed as part of Ferrari’s Formula 1 program, the paddle shift gearbox had become a feature of its range-topping sports cars and was available in its latest form for the 599, capable of changing gear in a mere 100 milliseconds. Although active suspension had long been banned from Formula 1, its development for road cars had continued and the 599 came equipped with SCM magnetorheological ‘semi-active’ dampers. The latter’s damping fluid changes in viscosity almost instantaneously when a magnetic field is applied, thereby altering the suspension characteristics. Damper controls were placed on the Formula 1-style steering wheel together with those for traction control and stability, as was the starter button. The 599’s fortunate driver would find him/herself looking at a central analogue rev counter flanked by a similar speedometer and an electronic display screen for all other functions. Ferrari thoughtfully provided plentiful storage space within the sumptuous leather-trimmed interior. First registered in 2008 this particular 599 left the factory as a special order, finished in a head-turning colour combination of Peal Bianco Avus with Rosso Daytona sports interior along with a number of additional options listed below. Offered with full service history, previously maintained by Jeddah Ferrari, the car has just been fully serviced by Ferrari Colchester. Included in the cars history file are its UK Log book, keys, owners pack and an MoT due to expire in April 2019. With only 30,000 miles recoded, as one would imagine the car is in excellent condition throughout. Considering how expensive these cars were from new, let alone with the options mentioned above, this car can very easily be considered a bargain.
2006 Porsche 997 GT3 33,600 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered

1974 Ferrari 365GT 2+2 One of 109 RHD cars. 40,000 Miles from new. Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: F101AL17949
Estimate: £68,000- £78,000 NO RESERVE
By the mid-1960s, 50 percent of all Ferraris produced were being built with four seats. Third in this succession of ‘family Ferraris’ was the 365GT 2+2, which made its public debut at the Paris Salon in October 1967. Sleekly styled in the manner of the limited edition 500 Superfast, the 365GT 2+2 was the most refined Ferrari to date. Based on that of the contemporary 330GTC, the chassis was made up of Ferrari’s familiar combination of oval and round steel tubing and, as well as featuring independent suspension all round - for the first time on a Ferrari 2+2 - boasted Koni’s hydropneumatic self-levelling system at the rear. Further refinements included mounting the engine and drive-train in rubber bushes to insulate the car’s occupants from noise and vibration, and offering power-assisted steering and air conditioning as standard equipment. Developing 320bhp in its 365GT incarnation, the well-proven 4.4-litre V12 engine was coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox, while the car’s blistering performance - top speed 150mph, 0-60mph in 7.0 seconds - was restrained by Girling ventilated discs all round. This right-hand drive example of one of Ferrari’s finest luxury GTs was purchased by the vendor in 1997 having previously been owned by a Mr M T Bourbon in the early 1980s. The latter lived in Paris and took the car with him to Fifth Avenue, New York in 1985. While in the USA it underwent substantial refurbishment at Automotive Restorations Inc of Stratford, CT (invoices available) before returning to the UK circa 1994. More recent work has included an engine top-end strip-down, new inlet camshaft and followers, overhaul of distributors and carburettors, new fuel pumps, rear suspension strip-down, new shock absorbers and suspension bushes, and overhaul of the brakes; all of the foregoing being carried out in February 1999 by D K Performance Cars of Edmonton, London N18 at a cost of £12,371 (invoice available). In November 2003 T-H-R-E Historic Racing carried out a further overhaul of the brakes prior to MoT at a cost of £4,010. Owed by the current vendor for the last three years it has been maintained as part of his collection and presents itself in very nice order indeed. Finished in dark blue with matching leather interior, the car is offered with aforementioned invoices, current MoT and Swansea V5 registration document.
Ferrari 308 GTSi ‘Quattrovalvoe’ Right-Hand-Drive One of only 233 Right Hand-Drive examples Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFLA13C000054827
Estimate: £50,000 - £60,000
Introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the contemporary styled 308 GTB – Ferrari’s second V8 road car – marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308 GT4. Badged as a ‘proper’ Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308 GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessor’s underpinnings and transversely mounted engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication. In road tune this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp, an out-put good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph. Produced initially with fiberglass bodywork – the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari, the Scaglietti-built 308 GTB used steel after April 1977. Further developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and, finally, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder on the Quattrovalvole (QV) model in 1982. An exhilarating driver’s car and a Ferrari purist’s delight, the 308 GTSi and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello, with over 12,000 sold.
Finished in excellent condition throughout, this rare right hand-drive example is one of only 233 produced. Offered with full service history and an extensive file, this very late example was produced in the 308’s final production year. Also include in the sale is the cars full owners pack, a UK V5 Log book and valid MoT due to expire in April 2019.
Having travelled a modest and warranted 75,000 miles, the cars condition and history file that the car retains is a true testament to the fastidious ownership that the car has been subject to. Included in the file are invoices for a gearbox rebuild costing in excess of ÂŁ4,500 as well as for a recent belt change and service. Offered at a very realistic reserve and not to be missed.
1988 Mercedes-Benz 300SL ‘Gullwing’ Evocation by Anton ‘Tony’ Ostermeier One of 50 hand-built examples by Anton Ostermeier One of only two fitted with the 3.4L AMG engine Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: WG82491S
Estimate: £200,000 - £250,000
Launched in 1954, the production 300 SL retained the spaceframe chassis and lightweight aluminium-alloy bodywork of the W194 racer while its mechanical underpinnings, like the latter’s, owed much to the contemporary Mercedes-Benz 300 luxury saloon. A 2,996cc overhead-camshaft inline six, the 300 SL’s engine was canted at 45 degrees to achieve a low bonnet line and produced 215bhp (DIN) at 5,800rpm using Bosch mechanical fuel injection. A four-speed, all-synchromesh manual gearbox transmitted power to the hypoid bevel rear axle. Suspension was independent all round: by wishbones and coil springs at the front, with swing axles and coil springs at the rear. The company’s U.S. distributor, Max Hoffman, decided that there was a market in America for a fast, sensual MercedesBenz coupe, and a production version of the racing 300 SL (complete with the fascinating gullwing doors) would be it. This 300SL Recreation was built by the well known Anton ‘Tony’ Ostermeier. As a former Mercedes employee, Ostermeier had a workshop in Gardena, California called Gullwing Car Company. From that location the well-made, hand craft ‘gullwings’ were created. This SL on offer is a Tony Ostermeier car with many original Mercedes components.
The cars were built on a modern 300E chassis, featured an updated drivetrain, suspension, and brakes that made for a very usable street car. Molds were made from an original 300 SL Gullwing, ensuring accuracy. The panels were made of aluminium reinforced with aircraft epoxy/fiberglass and steel. The parts crafted by Tony were so accurate and of high quality that they were ultimately purchased and used on authentic 300SL coupes and roadsters. Mercedes-Benz in Germany was one of his customers.
Tony Ostermeier built 50 Gullwings in the 80’s in California. Most cars have been purchased by original Mercedes 300 SL owners, who preferred to use an Ostermeier one as a daily car instead of the “Museum Gullwing”. All the cars were fitted with a 2.8 or 3.0 straight six Mercedes engine / 180 hp. The bodies were made in composite aluminium, the GLARE (Glass Laminated Aluminium Reinforced Epoxy), developed for the aéronautical industry. Only 2 cars were built with the new AMG 3.4 straight six engine, with a desirable 280 hp, which turns it into a real sport car. This car is one of those 2. In 2015 this rare AMG example underwent a comprehensive restoration by Rotscher Classics who are a renowned Mercedes-Benz specialist in Germany. The restoration was well-documented and consisted of up-rating the original 4 speed automatic gearbox with a manual 6 speed. The car has covered a mere 58.000 km from new and only 800 km since its restoration. The Ostermeier cars are the only Gullwing replicas available in the world that were built before Mercedes-Benz Company, trademarked the shape of the 300 SL. Since the 80’s the Ostermeier Gullwing value, has always been at the very least 25% of the original Mercedes Gullwing price. Offered with a great history and German registration papers, this example can only be described as good to excellent condition throughout.

One of only 609 UK Right-Hand Drive examples Matching numbers engine Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 660739
Estimate: ÂŁ90,000 - ÂŁ110,000
The Jaguar XK120 caused an absolute sensation when it was launched at the 1948 Motor Show. In the post-war era of rationing, general austerity and hardship it came as a stunning vision of what the future might hold. It was, without doubt, the most beautiful car in the world, and the fastest un-supercharged production sports model ever made up to that time. Its claimed top speed of 120mph was so astonishing that to prove it Jaguar took one over to Belgium and clocked 132mph! The response from the public at the Motor Show launch on 20th October 1948 caught Jaguar by surprise, and as orders poured in it was immediately obvious that the level of home and export demand could only be satisfied by moving from a lightweight alloy-bodied ash frame construction to tooling up for volume production in steel. This took time to achieve and the first 57 right hand drive cars, and 183 left-hand drive cars, were hand-produced in lightweight aluminium alloy. Throughout the 6-year production run, Jaguar manufactured a mere 609 Right hand drive roadsters for the home market and we are proud to be offering one of them here today.
Finished Mist grey with red leather interior, this Matching numbers UK Right hand drive XK120 Roadster has been subject to a recent no-expense-spared mechanical and cosmetic renovation. Mechanical works completed included overhauling the brakes, steering, suspension, all bushes and carburettor, as well as the supply and fitting of new exhaust system, vitreous enamel manifolds, shock absorbers, rear leaf springs, clutch, plugs, brake lines, fuel lines, petrol pump and complete electrical system.
Furthermore, the quality level in which the cars detailed cosmetic restoration has been finished, can only be fully appreciated when viewing the car in the flesh. Having been subject to a bare metal respray, total re-trim including all weather equipment and re-chroming of all of the brightwork, this rare Right-hand drive XK120 Roadster is truly a eye-catching example and is ready to be enjoyed in the forthcoming summer months.
1938 Lancia Aprilia Monoposto Registration Number: N/A
Chassis Number: 38CC15
Estimate: £30,000 - £35,000
The Lancia on offer is an example of a vintage special, having been built by Richard Thompson in the early 1980’s from the mechanical parts of a Lancia Aprilia. These have then been assembled onto a 1934 MG PA boxed chassis. The chassis had to undergone some surgery to allow the transplant to work. It has been cut, inverted, reversed and plated to produce a very un-Abingdon-like structure that matches up with the Lancia independent suspension systems. The overhead camshaft 1350cc Lancia engine has been restored, tuned and runs on a Shorrocks supercharger with a modest six psi boost, about 70bhp is produced. The running gear which is all Lancia, incorporates the original four speed gearbox and the MG cart springs have been replaced by Lancia independent suspension at all four corners. At the front end, this is by the wellknown coil springs and dampers, whilst at the rear, a transverse semi-epileptic spring is coupled to torsion bars with short trailing arms.
The brakes are hydraulically actuated with servo assistance from a Lancia Flavia unit. Disc wheels use 165x400 tyres at the front with 19x400 at the rear. As well as having a blower, the engine also incorporates a couple more ingenious items; as it runs without a cooling fan, or dynamo for that matter, a bigger radiator from an Austin 12/4 has been bought in together with a larger pre-war Fiat water pump. The plate-type oil cleaner has also been replaced by a full-flow air-cooled unit.
As one of just few Lancia Monopostoâ€™s of this kind in existence it is very rare to see it come to the open market and the opportunity to acquire such a historic racing car is very limited indeed. We are proud to offer this example with a highly regarded provenance and with a potential to be a very competitive Historic VSCC racing car. Offered with a spares package including many valuable parts and fourwheel bespoke trailer. This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a very historic and capable racer with spares package and trailer.
1963 Jaguar E-Type Series I 3.8 Litre Roadster – Original Right Hand Drive example Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 850745
Estimate: £100,000 - £130,000
Jaguar would make a habit of shocking the automotive world. Sometimes the impact of its cars reached beyond the showrooms and exposition halls to rock popular culture, yet not even Jaguar’s founder, Sir William Lyons, could have predicted the impact of the Jaguar E-Type. When introduced at the 1961 Geneva Salon, the new Jaguar stirred passions with its extremely sleek and timeless design backed by staggering performance. Constructed using methods derived from the D-Type sports racing car, the E-Type was a technical marvel. The light and rigid monocoque chassis used the engine itself as a structural part of the car, with the long and sleek bonnet hinged at the front. The headlights were beautifully recessed in the fenders, and covered with contoured Perspex for a free flowing design and improved aerodynamics. The car featured 4-wheel independent suspension, disc brakes all around and a 4-speed manual transmission. The proven XK power plant was carried over from the XK150, and made sure the lithe Jaguar would exceed the 150mph mark.
Often called the most beautiful production car of all time, the E-Type remains an automotive icon of design, engineering and speed. With spare parts readily available, a number of marque clubs to join and many driving and concours events to attend, the E-Type is an excellent, widely admired collector car.
This nice UK-delivered example was despatched on 29th July 1963 to its lucky first owner, later being the beneficiary of a comprehensive restoration to the bodywork, mechanics and interior trim. During the rebuild the engine was converted to run on unleaded, and the suspension and brakes rebuilt with new components as required. Notably the suspension was uprated with adjustable shock absorbers, the final drive was upgraded with a 3.31:1 Powerlok differential, and the wheels were replaced with six-inch wide Competition items. Following the restoration in the late 1990s the car was retained by its owner until being sold through Coys to our current vendor in 2006. With just two owners in the last 26 years, this is a delightful usable E-Type which is ready to be enjoyed to the full by its next owner.
1963 Bentley Continental Mulliner Park Ward S3 Single ownership for over three decades Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: BC112XA
Estimate: £25,000 - £40,000 NO RESERVE
The Bentley Continental was, of course, exclusively a coachbuilt car, the firms of H J Mulliner, Park Ward and James Young all offering bodies on the Continental S2 chassis, which differed from the standard version by virtue of its fourleading-shoe front brakes, shorter radiator and, up to chassis number ‘BC99BY’, higher gearing. By far the most striking of the S2 Continentals were those bodied by Rolls-Royce’s in-house coachbuilder Park Ward, and this design by Norwegian Vilhelm Koren, with its influential continuous front-to-rear wing line, would continue on the Continental S3. Quad headlamps were the S3’s major styling innovation, and on the H J Mulliner, Park Ward-bodied Continental were contained in slanting nacelles, giving rise to this model’s ‘Chinese Eye’ sobriquet. Headlamps aside, the most significant change was to the S3’s engine, which boasted an increased compression ratio and larger carburettors, modifications that raised peak power by some 7%.
This delightful right-hand drive Chinese eye was supplied new to H.R Owen in 1963 and subsequently sold to the first owner Mr Miller of West London on the 4th May 1963. Originally registered as 777HYP the Bentley was imported to the Republic of Ireland in March 1971 and given a new registration number 777KYI as carefully reported in the buff log book that accompanies the car.
By June 1976 the Bentley was known to have three previous owners. It was registered to its final owner, a well-known Irish legal figure in January 1984 and is still remembered as a familiar sight on the roads of Dublin. The car was retired in the early 1990s in expectation of future restoration and is presented in barn find condition as a genuine time capsule. In its original factory specification the S3 is offered with a comprehensive history file which includes a dating letter confirming the original build information, original buff log book and tool kit as well as bills and receipts of maintenance work. Over three decades of single ownership this matching numbers S3 Mulliner ParkWard is being offered on the open market for the very first time, it is a very rare beast indeed and with a little time and care this will be back on the road in its former glory. With a comprehensive history and such long-term single ownership this would make a rewarding restoration project for any collector or enthusiast.
Property of a Gentleman 1920 Rolls-Royce 40/50hp Silver Ghost by Barker Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 5YE
Estimate: £60,000 - £80,000
Although the 40/50hp model would have earned its ‘The Best Car in the World’ sobriquet in any event, Rolls-Royce’s decision to drop all other types only served to focus attention on what would become known as the ‘Silver Ghost’. Prior to 1908, when it relocated to a new factory in Derby, the company founded by engineer Frederick Henry Royce and entrepreneur the Honourable Charles Stewart Rolls had manufactured a variety of models at its Manchester premises. Cars with two, three, four and six cylinders were made, and even an abortive V8, before Managing Director Claude Johnson’s decision to concentrate on the range-topping 40/50hp. The latter had first appeared at the 1906 Motor Show and became known as the ‘Silver Ghost’ the following year when chassis number ‘60551’ was exhibited wearing silverpainted tourer coachwork by Barker. The heart of the Silver Ghost was its magnificent engine, a 7,036cc (later 7,428cc) sidevalve six equipped with sevenbearing crankshaft and pressure lubrication. A sturdy chassis comprised of channel-section side members and tubular cross members was suspended on semi-elliptic springs at the front and a ‘platform’ leaf-spring arrangement at the rear, though the latter soon came in for revision. The transmission too was soon changed: a three-speed gearbox with directdrive top gear replacing the original four-speed/overdrive top unit in 1909. In the course of its 20-year production life there would be countless other improvements to the car, one of the most important being the adoption of servo-assisted four-wheel brakes towards the end of 1923. The Silver Ghost remained in production in England until 1925 and at Rolls-Royce’s Springfield plant in the USA until 1926, the longest production run of any model from that celebrated company. This wonderfully original Ghost was despatched to Barker on May 1920, supplied with Limousine coachwork and sold with a purchase price of £1,575. The Ghost was later acquired by our vendor’s family in the mid-1980s, joining his small Rolls-Royce collection. Over the years the Ghost has been stored carefully and used for rallies and weekend wedding duties. Offered for the first time in over 30 years, and supplied with a UK V5 document, this is a wonderful prospect for the Rolls-Royce enthusiast. A fine opportunity to acquire a very original Ghost with a lovely patina.
1974 Studebaker Avanti Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: RQB2155
Estimate: £8,000 - £11,000
Called back to Studebaker in 1961, Loewy and his team were charged with developing a new range for 1963 and in a miraculous 40 days produced an instant classic: the Avanti. A glassfibre bodied, two-door coupé, the controversially styled Avanti arrived too late to save the ailing company and fewer than 5,000 had been made when production at Studebaker’s South Bend, Indiana plant ceased in 1964. This was not the end of the Avanti story though. Two local Studebaker dealers - Nathaniel Altman and Leo Newman – bought the tooling and recommenced production in part of the old Studebaker factory in 1965. Bodies were supplied by Molded Fiber-Glass of Ashtabula, Ohio (makers of the Chevrolet Corvette body for General Motors) and Messrs Altman and Newman used the Corvette engine initially, calling their new version ‘Avanti II’. There would be many changes of ownership, specification and place of manufacture before the last Avanti rolled off production lines in Cancun, Mexico. Finished in Silver with a Red leather interior and offered with a UK V5 document, this well presented Avanti make a very interesting alternative to more mainstream classic cars. Very much a collector’s item for the discerning enthusiast.
1969 Porsche 911 T -Matching numbers example Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 119122793
Estimate: ÂŁ60,000 - ÂŁ70,000
This stunning, recently restored example of a rare 1969 911T with fully working Sportomatic transmission is presented in its original colour scheme of red with red interior. Imported from the USA by the current owner in 2013, the car has undergone a full restoration over the last four years with work undertaken by Porsche Specialists Nine Excellence, together with Porsche Approved Body Shop. Imported from the USA by the owner in October 2013 this matching number 1969 911 Touring with Sportomatic transmission has undergone a full restoration over the last four years. The work has been conducted by Porsche Specialist Nine Excellence together with Porsche Approved Body Shop. The car has been restored completely whilst retaining original parts. The bodywork has been painted in the original colour, the car had a complete new underside fitted by Porsche Approved Body Shop. The interior has been fully re-trimmed retaining original parts where appropriate. The engine has been restored, with original carburettors rebuilt and the transmission has been overhauled and works perfectly. The rest of the mechanics have been overhauled including the shocks, brakes etc. The semi-automatic transmission known as Sportomatic had a conventional synchromesh gearbox along with a torque converter and a normal clutch which was controlled by a vacuum controlled lever. Shifting gears without a clutch pedal to press resulted in very smooth changes and a more relaxed drive when compared to its manual siblings. Over the decades many of these transmissions were converted to manual transmission which means there are very few left that work as well as this one does. With a recorded 41,847 miles and extensive history folder including COA and original parts, this is an excellent opportunity to purchase what we considered to be one of the best available examples. Everything on the car is matching numbers and whilst there is no need for a MoT due to its age, the car has passed with no advisories.
1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II 4.2 Roadster Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 1R9517
Estimate: £70,000 - £80,000
The Jaguar E-Type (a.k.a. Jaguar XK-E) is a British sports car, which was manufactured by Jaguar Cars Ltd. between 1961 and 1975. Its combination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricing established the marque as an icon of 1960s motoring. More than 70,000 E-Types were sold. The Series 2 introduced a number of design changes, largely due to U.S. design legislation. The most distinctive feature is the absence of the aerodynamic glass headlight covers, which impacted several other imported cars, like the Citroën DS, as well. Unlike other cars, this retrograde step was applied worldwide for the E-Type. Other hallmarks of Series 2 cars are a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and tail lights below the bumpers, better cooling aided by an enlarged “mouth” and twin electric fans, and uprated brakes. New seats were fitted, which purists claim lacked the style of the originals but were certainly more comfortable.. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned; rocker switches that met US health and safety regulations were substituted for toggle switches. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a more industrial “ribbed” appearance. Air conditioning and power steering were available as factory options. Finished in Pale blue with contrasting blue interior #1R9517 was purchased by its current private owner a number of years ago. Described to be in excellent condition throughout, this particular E-type has received regular yet sparing use over the years and included in the cars history file are various MOT’s, the latest due to expire in May 2018 and a V5 registration logbook.
1983 Ferrari 512BBi Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: ZFF5A09B000044995
Having reasserted itself at the top of the supercar hierarchy with the first ‘Boxer’ – the 365GTB/4 BB – Ferrari went one better with its successor, the 512BB. For the new Boxer, Ferrari abandoned its long-standing practice of denoting a model by the capacity of an individual cylinder and adopted the Dino-type nomenclature where ‘512’ indicates 5 litres/12 cylinders. Displacement was increased by enlarging both bore and stroke, while in addition the compression ratio was raised and dry-sump lubrication adopted. The result of all these changes was a useful increase in torque which, coupled with revised gear ratios, made the 512 more tractable. Changes to Pininfarina’s inspired coachwork were, not surprisingly, few. The running gear likewise came in for only minor revision while the already excellent all-round ventilated disc brakes remained unchanged. Inside, the 512 remained virtually the same as before but for the welcome adoption of multi-way adjustable seats in place of the fixed originals. Road & Track magazine had achieved a speed of 175mph (280km/h) in the preceding 365GT/4 BB, and although lack of road space prevented the discovery of their test 512’s capability, Ferrari’s claimed maximum of 188mph (302km/h) was felt entirely realistic. In 1981 the model was updated with Bosch fuel injection, becoming the 512BBi. Once again, maximum power remained unchanged but there was more available at lower revs and torque increased still further. Possessing an engine directly related to Ferrari’s contemporary Formula 1 unit, as well as being both lighter and faster than the legendary Daytona, the 512BBi was one of the most capable and exciting supercars of its era and is still capable of providing all the thrills that an enthusiastic owner-driver could wish for. This left-hand drive example is one of only 1,007 512BBi models produced by Ferrari. Finished in Rosso Corsa red with dark blue interior trim and showing very little wear, the car is displayed in lovely condition all round. Showing a total of 56,000 kilometres on the odometer the car was previously sold by Charles Pozzi automobiles of France in 1983 the car has seen just three owners from new and has been serviced less than 2,000 kilometres ago. Included in the sale are bills of service and maintenance work as well as a Ferrari booklet with important documents included. With the value of V12 Ferraris from the 1960’s and 1970’s having increased dramatically, users and investors alike have recognised the potential of the Berlinetta Boxer series, and particularly that of the more practical fuel-injected models such as this one.
1987 Bentley Continental Convertible Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 20723
Estimate: £70,000 - £80,000
The incomparable Bentley Continental sports saloon has been synonymous with effortless high speed cruising in the grand manner since its introduction on the R-Type chassis in 1952. This magnificent tradition seemed to have ended with the demise in 1965 of the successor S-Type Continental, only to re-emerge triumphantly in 1984 with the introduction of the T-Series Continental. Flagship of the range, the new Continental was a worthy scion of this noble British family, impeccably engineered and hand-built in the time-honoured manner by Mulliner Park Ward Limited’s peerless craftsmen. Like its illustrious forebears, the modern Continental represented the ultimate in bespoke coach-built motoring, designed to appeal to those discerning – and necessarily very wealthy – clients with the most refined of tastes, a well-developed appreciation for the finer things of life and a refusal to accept anything less than the very best. Far from being an outmoded concept, this uncompromising approach was so successful, and demand for the exclusive Continental so sustained, that it remained in production well into the 1990s, the last (Convertible) examples being delivered in 1995, by which time the UK price had risen to well in excess of £100,000. The essence of Continental ownership was most aptly summed up by Autosport’s inimitable John Bolster. Writing in 1958, Bolster noted that the Continental was a classical design that achieved a high degree of excellence by sheer quality of construction: ‘In doing so, it develops an individuality, a character, call it what you will, that makes it entirely different from any other marque. The man who drives a Continental lives in an enchanted world, for everybody calls him ‘sir’ and he may park where other lesser cars may never tread.’ Despite the passage of more than 50 years, Bolster’s words ring every bit as true today as they did then. Chassis number 20723 was registered on 15th May 1987, finished in Acrylic Tudor Red, with sumptuous black leather interior and black mohair hood. With only 60,500 miles and with some 15 previous MOT’s to support this, the car is accompanied by extensive specialist documented history and freshly serviced with no advisories. Previous owner of 18 years, supported by a documented history file from Jack Barclay, Bentley Crewe, Stratton, with supporting 17 stamps, and then Marque specialists Richard Parsons, Taylor’s, Ghost Motors and Silver Lady. The level of maintenance shows the meticulous nature in which this Bentley has been cared for and described to be in immaculate condition. The Continentals of this era were some of the last coach built Bentley but also the last from Mulliner Park Ward. Only seventy seven examples were built comprising both the drop head convertible, such as this car, and its fixed head counterpart. Standard equipment includes ABS, Power Hood, Climate, ICE, full electric windows, seats and power hood. A true gentleman’s carriage and a scintillating prospect for the warmer days ahead. 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.
2008 Ferrari F430 Scuderia Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £135,000 - £155,000
In August 2007 Ferrari has released the official photos of the 430 Scuderia, a lightweight and enhanced version designed for the track and heir of the 360 Challenge Stradale. The Scuderia was developed in collaboration with Michael Schumacher and weight was reduced by 85kg to reach 1,350kg, whilst the engine was boosted to 510hp and 470Nm of torque at 8500rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 100km/h was achieved in 3.6 seconds along with a top speed of 320km/h. Powerful ceramic brakes gave immense stopping power and contributed towards weight saving. The Scuderia also benefited from improved transmission software known as ‘superfast’ which allowed for 60 millisecond shifts. The 430 Scuderia was unveiled by Michael Schumacher at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007. Aesthetically this model differs from the normal version with the introduction of the new bumper (characterized by a “sharp design”) as well as slightly different skirts including air vents in front of the rear wheels. There are two large twin tailpipes that are centrally placed to replace the standard exhaust system. The body of the car is crossed longitudinally by a pair of dark grey bands (optional). The interior also receives special attention and is even more sporting than the standard F430. Production numbers were limited ensuring that the Scuderia is highly sought after. Originally registered in Italy and with only 13,000 miles recorded, earlier in the year this high specification example received a full inspection by GTO engineering, as well as the fitment of a new clutch. Offered with full service history, this very low mileage example left the factory with the following optional extras: Carbon fibre steering wheel with LEDs Carbon fibre large racing seats with 4 point harnesses Tessuto interior with Rosso stitching Radio cover in carbon fibre Fire extinguisher Fully trimmed boot compartment Door sills in carbon fibre Roll bar Giallo instrument panel Rosso brake callipers and a signature racing stripe. This is a high specification car with a new clutch and fully checked out by GTO engineering.
1941 Buick Eight Series Model 49 ‘Woodie’ Wagon Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 14239585
Estimate: Refer Department
The film studios of Los Angeles were still enjoying the gilded age of Hollywood glamour by the start of the Forties and required the versatility of a station wagon that matched the style of their matinee idols. Buick’s Woddie wagons soon became parking lot celebrities for the likes of 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros. The upmarket machine from Flint, Michigan, appealed to the film set, with MGM even gifting one to Bette Davis. Buick having ridden the turbulence of the depression, now enjoyed an upturn in its fortunes, contributed in part by the launch of its straight-eight power plant in 1931. Its position at the upper end of HM’s hierarchy of nameplates meant that as America prospered, so did the marque. The arrival of 1940 saw the Buick line-up include a ‘Woodie’ Estate Wagon, with advertising that featured superstar owner Clark Gable. It would be a 1941 Model 49 that transported Paul Newman back to the chain gang and ultimately to meet his maker in the film Cool Hand Luke. Buick’s Model 49 made the perfect ‘West Coast Woddie’ and was the ride of choice for MGM scarlets, but as wartime approached this rare model had little time to shine... classic-american magazine by Grant Ford Buicks production line in 1941 consisted of 26 different models and signified a record year of 370,101 vehicles manufactured. The model 49 ‘Woddie’ was the rarest with just 838 leaving Flint and of those, only a dozen are thought to still be on the road today, making them highly desirable and valuable. The numbers achieved would not be repeated the following year, as from December 7, 1941, war production would take precedence over automobile manufacture, as America entered the Second World war. Chassis 14239585 arrived to the UK in 2013 as a matching numbers car with an odometer reading a mere 30,000 miles, and it was at this point that the comprehensive no-expense spared restoration began. The work was completed with a great attention to detail, which can now be fully appreciated by the excellent condition of the car. Finished in all of the period correct features and all the glamour in the passenger’s eye line, it’s easy to overlook a cathedral-like roof beautifully constructed and finished; 30 lengths of curved ash on view stretch from front to back. An epic project, covering several years, thousands of man hours and a vast amount of money, has ensured that this 75-year-old Buick enjoys yet another lifetime. While the Woodie’s heyday may have been in a different era, this Buick will attract an audience for decades to come.
1971 Mercedes 280 SL Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 11304412022411
Estimate: £62,000- £72,000
In the spring of 1963, Mercedes-Benz debuted an all-new roadster to replace the 190SL and 300SL - the 230SL. The 230SL ‘Pagoda’ was a stunning Paul Bracq designed two-seat convertible that followed Mercedes’ new design language, featuring crisp lines and upright headlights. The 230SL was fitted with a prominent three-pointed star in its grill as a reference to the already iconic 300SL. To save on weight, the hood, door skins, trunk lid, and tonneau cover were all composed of aluminium. The nickname ‘Pagoda’ was quickly adopted thanks to the slightly concave roof on the optional removable hardtop that resembled a pagoda roof. Although controversial at its introduction, these SL’s are now considered a masterpiece of design. In 1967, Mercedes introduced the third and final iteration of the ‘Pagoda’, the 280SL, and it then became apparent that some cars don’t change, they just get better. “The Mercedes-Benz 280SL, the latest version of a line that began as the 230SL in 1963, is the same as ever, just better,” concluded Road & Track after testing a 280SL in 1968. “For those who value engineering, finesse and high quality construction, it’s alone in the field,” enthused the highly respected American motoring magazine, while its manufacturer considered the 280SL: “a Grand Tourer in the traditional sense” and “a unique combination of sports car performance and saloon car comfort (a Mercedes-Benz saloon naturally).” While the 280SL did not offer the performance of the 300SL, it is a very charming model with capable handling and braking thanks to its suspension and all-wheel disc brakes. These roadsters also have one of the most beautiful bodies produced in the 1960s. Thanks to their robust inline-six and their luxurious Mercedes interior, they are wonderful cars to be driven and enjoyed. If one is looking for the perfect all-around car for rallies, shows and Sunday cruising, this might be the car. With an exquisite restoration and all the right accessories and specifications in place, this Europeandelivery 280SL is among the most desirable examples we have been entrusted with. The stunning car on offer is finished in the classic silver (DB180) exterior colour, over a period correct leather interior, neatly matched German square-weave carpeting. The black convertible top adds great contrast to the silver exterior, and the Pagoda roof hardtop is finished in the same silver paint as the rest of the car. This beautifully restored 280SL was delivered with the desirable automatic transmission from the factory, which provides the owner with a more refined driving experience compared to the manual versions. Besides the desirable transmission, the car is equipped with factory air conditioning, which makes it a great candidate for rallies and tours in hot climates. Upon a recent road test, this 280SL performed as well as it presents, and gives one a feeling of quality craftsmanship.
2000 Porsche 996 GT3 Generation 1 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £55,000 - £65,000
The Porsche 996 was an all-new design made by Harm Lagaay – the first new 911 that didn’t carry over a significant component from a previous variant. All the bodywork, interior and drive-train were new, including the first water-cooled engine in a 911. The first 996s were available as a coupé or cabriolet, initially with rear wheel, or later, with four-wheel drive, and a 3.4 litre normally aspirated engine producing 296bhp. Porsche Carrera owners complained loudly about the “lower priced car that looked just like theirs did”, hence the headlight change for 2002. The engine of the GT3 sets it apart from most of the other 996 models, although it shares the same basic 3.6 litre displacement of the standard 996 type. Along with those of the GT2 and Turbo, it is based on the original air-cooled 911’s versatile, true dry-sump crankcase, with an external oil tank. The original version of the GT3 had 360bhp, compared to 300bhp for the regular 996. In GT3 configuration, this so-called “split” crankcase (meaning the parting line of crankcase is on the crankshaft centreline) uses, instead of a fan and finned cylinders, separate water jackets added onto each side of the crankcase to cool banks of three cylinders, with water pumped through a radiator. Thus, the GT3 engine is very similar to the completely water-cooled 962 racing car’s engine, which is based on the same crankcase. The 962 differs, however, by using six individual cylinder heads, while the GT1/GT3, like the air and water-cooled Porsche 959, uses two cylinder heads, each covering a bank of three cylinders. The GT3 engine could therefore also be thought of as similar to a 959 engine, but with the water-cooled cylinders. Finished in a very rare shade of Bleu D’ Islande metallic paint with a Black leather interior, this UK delivered GT3 is well specified with a rear half cage, carbon seats and trim pack, and Schroth racing harnesses. Offered from long-term ownership during which time the Porsche has been very carefully stored and maintained, the GT3 is supplied with a full service record detailing 15 services in total to support the 46,000 miles covered from new. All in all a fine example of Porsche’s track-orientated modern classic. 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.

Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £90,000- £110,000
Conceived and constructed in but a few months, the XK120 debuted at the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show where the stunning-looking roadster caused a sensation, the resulting demand for what was then the world’s fastest production car taking Jaguar by surprise. It was immediately obvious that the slow-to-produce alloy bodywork would have to go, and the car was swiftly re-engineered in steel. The work of Jaguar boss William Lyons himself and one of the most beautiful shapes ever to grace an automobile, the body was conceived as a coachbuilt aluminium structure for the simple reason that Jaguar expected to sell no more than 200 XK120s in the first year! The car’s heart was, of course, the fabulous XK engine, a 3.4-litre ‘six’ embodying the best of modern design, boasting twin overhead camshafts running in an aluminium-alloy cylinder head, seven main bearings and a maximum output of 160bhp. The XK120 set new standards of comfort, road-holding and performance for British sports cars and, in keeping with the Jaguar tradition, there was nothing to touch it at the price. This wonderful XK120 Fixed Head Coupe on offer today has had a total of over £140,000 spent on it. A restoration completed in 2017 began some 11 years previously where the car was sand blasted including 7 times chemically dipped body. The chassis was shot blasted and lightened, before being painted to a high standard by specialist restorers in Scotland. The car returned to the south of England where it was expertly trimmed by leading marque specialists to the very highest concours standard. The Walnut Facia and door capping’s were also reenamelled. The foot wells were extended for comfort. Mechanically the XK engine was built up, now 4.2 litres for increased torque for easy cruising for long distance events. A five speed synchromesh gearbox was fitted along with power steering and larger disc brakes. An XK150 axle was fitted for increased strength along with special road wheels. All new electrics were installed. Offered with its UK V5 registration documents this is a very fast XK is being offered on the open market for the first time.
Property of a Gentleman 1938 Rolls-Royce 25/30 Sports Saloon by Thrupp and Maberly In single ownership over a 5 decade period Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: GGR 26
Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000
The Rolls-Royce 25/30, built between 1936 and 1938, is an updated version of the 20/25 featuring a larger engine than had been fitted to the earlier model which provided more power to compensate for the over-size bodies being built. The in-line six cylinder, overhead valve, engine was similar to that used in the 20/25 but increased in capacity to 4,257cc. A single proprietary Stromberg downdraught carburettor replaced the Rolls-Royce one and magneto ignition was no longer fitted but a spare ignition coil was provided. The riveted chassis had rigid front and rear axles suspended by half elliptic springs with hydraulic dampers. Braking was on all four wheels assisted by a mechanical servo with separate rear brakes fitted for the handbrake. Also fitted was the traditional Rolls-Royce radiator with vertical louvres, the angle of which was controlled thermostatically to control engine cooling. Only the chassis and mechanical parts were made by Rolls-Royce. The body was then made and fitted by a coachbuilder selected by the owner. In the early 1930s, all luxury marques were delivered as rolling chassis to one of many marque-approved coachbuilders for completion. Chassis GGR 26 was bodied by Thrupp & Maberly in a delightful four-door “Sports Saloon” design. Thrupp & Maberly were favoured by royalty and heads of state, and they specialised in exquisite, well-built bodies with elaborate interiors for Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and Humber. The quality of their work was so superior that Sir Henry Seagrave’s Golden Arrow captured the world’s land speed record in 1929, at 231 mph, wearing a streamlined body supplied by this coachbuilder. In this case our 25/30 was supplied to Thrupp and Maberly and fitted with Sports Saloon coachwork, thereafter being sold via Jack Barlay of Hanover Square to a Ms. M. Inge in Hampshire. The 25/30 was specified with Polished Staybright Chrome fittings, Ace winglamps, Lucas P100 headlamps, and an outside spare wheel carrier. Our vendor bought this highly original 25/30 in 1971 and has owned it ever since. In current ownership now for over four decades, the 25/30 has been stored carefully and used in conjunction with his other vintage Rolls-Royce motor cars, which are also included in this sale. This rather handsome and well-proportioned Sports Saloon is offered with its original buff logbook and more recent V5/C document.
1926 Bayliss-Thomas Speedster Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid

1968 Citroen DS21 Safari UK delivered right hand drive Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 3560185
Estimate: £18,000 - £22,000
After 18 years of secret development as the successor to the Traction Avant, the DS 19 was introduced on 5th October 1955 at the Paris Motor Show. In the first 15 minutes of the show, 743 orders were taken and orders for the first day totalled 12,000. During the 10 days of the show, the DS took in 80,000 deposits; a record that stood for over 60 years. Contemporary journalists said the DS pushed the envelope in the ride vs. handling compromise possible in a motor vehicle. The car featured a novel hydropneumatic suspension including an automatic leveling system and variable ground clearance, developed in-house by Paul Magès. This suspension allowed the DS to travel quickly on the poor road surfaces common in France. In addition, the vehicle had power steering and a semi-automatic transmission (the transmission required no clutch pedal, but gears still had to be shifted by hand), though the shift lever controlled a powered hydraulic shift mechanism in place of a mechanical linkage, and a fibreglass roof which lowered the centre of gravity and so reduced weight transfer. Inboard front brakes (as well as independent suspension) reduced unsprung weight. Different front and rear track widths and tyre sizes reduced the unequal tyre loading, which is well known to promote understeer, typical of front-engined and front-wheel drive cars. The delightful DS21 Safari we have on offer here is presented in a very good condition throughout having been maintained fastidiously by the current vendor over the last 12 years. An original right hand drive example, the car has been cared for by marque specialists under the current stewardship who himself is a DS enthusiast and collector. With only 4 previous owners and showing 61,000 miles on the odometer, this ever popular French classic comes with a V5C registration and current MOT. A tour de force in its aerodynamic design and innovative technology, the DS21 is a true collector’s car and this example would be a credit to any collection. 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.

Ferrari 328GTS Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFXA20AxG0061559
Estimate: £45,000 - £55,000
Debuted at the 1985 Frankfurt Auto Show, the Ferrari 328 was the second model in Ferrari’s long and popular line of mid-engine V8 sports cars, continuing through the upcoming 488 GTB. The 328 was the replacement to the popular 308 and featured notable performance and design advancements over the outgoing model. The mid-mounted V8 engine was increased from 3.0 to 3.2 liters and the iconic Leonardo Fioravanti-designed body was updated for a smoother, more contemporary appearance with integrated bumpers and revised cooling ducts, resulting in a more cohesive and streamlined profile. Pininfarina built two variants of this mid-engine sportscar, the Gran Turismo Berlinetta Coupe and the Gran Turismo Spider, featuring a removable Targa top. While performance of the GTS was not the same as the GTB, it offered an exhilarating open-air driving experience, and afforded the driver and their fortunate passenger unbridled access to the unmistakable sound of the dry-sump Ferrari V8. In the short four year run of the 328, 6,068 examples were produced, a great success which, combined with the success and popularity of the 308, ensured the position of the mid-engine V8 in Ferrari’s permanent stable. In the summer of 1987, this particular 328 GTS left Ferrari’s Maranello factory finished in the timeless combination of Ferrari’s iconic Rosso Corsa paint over a fine Nero black Leather interior. The car on offer has had some minor modifications to UK specification. There are many invoices that accompany the car from previous work carried out. With three services since being in the Uk and reported to drive very well the 328gts in a rare colour combination is offered with UK registration document and valid Mot test certificate.
1969 Jaguar E-Type Series II Fixed Head Coupe Original Right-Hand-Drive example Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £70,000 - £80,000
The Series 2 E-Type introduced a number of design changes, largely due to U.S. design legislation. The most distinctive feature is the absence of the aerodynamic glass headlight covers, a wrap-around rear bumper, re-positioned and larger front indicators and tail lights below the bumpers, better cooling aided by an enlarged “mouth” and twin electric fans, and uprated brakes. New seats were fitted, which purists claim lacked the style of the originals but were certainly more comfortable. The interior and dashboard were also redesigned; rocker switches that met US health and safety regulations were substituted for toggle switches. The engine is easily identified visually by the change from smooth polished cam covers to a more industrial “ribbed” appearance. Air conditioning and power steering were available as factory options. This beautiful UK-delivered example, presented in Opalescent Blue with a Red Leather interior, was supplied new in 1969 by Ritchies of Glasgow to an Italian living in nearby Troon, who was well known for using the E-Type to promote his ice cream business in the town. After many years of ownership he passed his beloved E-Type to his daughter, who enjoyed the Jaguar for many more years before selling the car to a local resident. Now showing just 74,000 miles recorded, which we believe to be correct, this low ownership, low mileage example presents very well with excellent chrome work, chrome wire wheels, and a beautiful soft leather interior. Offered with a comprehensive history file from new, a number of older MOT’s to support the mileage, also original handbooks and warranty card, this is one of the nicest original Series II E-Types which we have seen for some time.
1968 Porsche 912 European delivered with c.45,000 kilometres recorded from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 129020996
Estimate: £28,000 - £32,000
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 near-356 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. This exceptional and original Porsche 912, finished in Irish Green (colour code 6806 / 213), was first delivered new to the Netherlands in 1968. Since being brought into the UK in 2015 the 912 has been maintained and serviced by Porsche 912 specialist ‘Porsche 912 Revival Cars.’ According to our vendor the car drives beautifully, enhanced by the fitment of Weber 401DF carburetors in 2016 (the original Solex carburettors are available if required). To improve handling the 912 has been fitted with special order Koni shock absorbers all round, and braking is bettered by new discs on each corner. The car’s original Fuchs wheels have also been refurbished to original specification, and protected with a special coating. Showing 45,000, and although we are unable to confirm if this is genuine, the running of the engine would suggest this is a genuine low mileage example. Offered with all receipts and invoices for works completed since 2015, and a fresh MOT to 2019, this is a great opportunity own a genuine European-delivered 912 in great shape and ready to enjoy.
1988 Audi Quattro 3,000 miles since engine rebuild. Registration Number: Uk registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £14,000 - £18,000
The early 1980’s is often thought of as the “golden era” of rally racing. The principle governing body for motorsports, the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), introduced a new category called Group B in 1982 to replace the rear-wheel drive Group 2 and the sportscar class Group 4 categories. Group B permitted all-wheel drive drivelines and near limitless horsepower output. With relatively low production numbers needed to satisfy homologation requirements, this class prompted the development of some of the fastest and most powerful rally cars in the history of the motorsport. One of the manufacturers that responded to the opportunity to compete in Group B was Audi, who campaigned the first all-wheel drive vehicle in rally racing. In a field dominated by rear-wheel drivelines, Audi engineers effectively pioneered and implemented an all-wheel driveline into the Audi Quattro 80 A1 (urQuattro, or “original” Quattro). With rally drivers such as Michèle Mouton, Hannu Mikkola and Stig Blomqvist behind the wheel, the Quattro dominated. Audi won the constructors’ title in 1982, and second place in 1983, validating the effectiveness of all-wheel drive. Despite its innovations, the Quattro was not without its weaknesses. Excessive length and weight became apparent when compared to its peers in the class, Ford, Lancia and Peugeot. Audi furthered its development of the Quattro, leading to the eventual introduction of an even higher performing Audi contender, the Sport Quattro S1, in 1984. In the hands of Blomqvist, Mikkola, Walter Röhrl and Mouton, the Sport Quattro S1 raised the bar once again. Audi was at the top of the constructors’ podium once again in 1984. In addition to Group B competition, the Sport Quattro S1 proved formidable on the mountain. With Mouton behind the wheel, it won the 1985 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and set a hill climb record. The Quattro on offer today was bought in Glasgow by the current vendor. He then undertook a bare metal respray. Mechanically the car is fitted with an S2 20 valve unit, the car was re-assembled by Quattro Concepts of Watlington and it has covered a mere 3,000 miles since the work. Said to drive superbly this iconic example of the Quattro warrants a closer inspection. 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.
