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in writing to the Seller decline to sell the Lot, and the Seller shall be liable to Coys as though the Seller had withdrawn the lot from sale without Coys consent.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.

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. Coys may in its discretion withhold remittance of the Net Sale Proceeds to the Seller until such time as the Seller has deposited with Coys the V5 registration document in the case of a UK registered vehicle or, in the case of an unregistered, or non-UK registered vehicle, the appropriate documents of title (ownership) relevant and appropriate to the country of registration of the vehicle, and any other documentation relating to the vehicle in the Seller’s possession or control which he agreed with Coys to supply. 21.

If the Buyer continues to fail to make payment of the Purchase Price in full within 14 days of it falling due under Condition 20.1, Coys may (if so instructed by the Seller, or acting of its own motion in accordance with Condition 21.4 below) without prejudice to any other rights it may have, exercise one or more of the following additional remedies: (a) To institute proceedings against the Buyer in its own name, or in the name of the Seller for damages or specific performance for breach of the sale contract; (b) To institute proceedings against the Buyer in its own name in respect of the Buyer’s Premium

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.

1995 Bentley Brooklands Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £10,000 - £15,000
Replacing the Bentley Mulsanne and ‘Eight’ models came the Bentley Brooklands, a new and slightly more affordable option unveiled in 1998. Designed in classic Bentley fashion the full-size luxury saloon came equipped with the characteristic Bentley Grille, dual headlights and wrap-around parking lights along with an interior that remained much the same as previous models. Only the centre console was changed with a newly fitted gear selector. As with many Bentley models, the Brooklands also featured the trademark descending boot lid and chrome B-pillars and featured the classic 6.75 Litre V8 the Brooklands R was the minor to the turbocharged version however was an attractive proposition for many customers with upgraded suspension borrowed from the Turbo R and a light-pressure Turbo.
Well loved by the current owner, this wonderful modern Bentley was well specified from new with a Long Wheel Base chassis and extended leather interior to the headlining as well as seat coverings and door cards. More recently the Brooklands has been converted to run on LPG, offering a degree more practicality than other examples on the market, the electric seats have been overhauled and a new battery fitted. These Brooklands models offer exceptional value in the classic car market, and none more so than this well loved example.

1997 BMW 840ci Sport Two private owners and 14,000 miles from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WBAEF82080CC66364
Estimate: £19,000 - £23,000
The wonderfully dramatic BMW 8 Series Coupé was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1989 and positively bristled with innovations, as befitted the flagship model from the makers of “the ultimate driving machine”. Luxuriously trimmed inside and packed with all the gadgets that its jet-set client base could wish for, the 8 Series turned every journey into an occasion and made the driver feel special every time they slipped behind the wheel. Initially, it was powered by a magnificent allalloy, 5-litre V12 that produced 295bhp and a mighty 330lb/ft of torque. Allied to a 5-speed automatic gearbox that could be operated manually if really rapid progress was desired, this was sufficient to generate a 0-60mph time of just 6.8 seconds on its way to a top speed electronically limited to 155mph. An equally brilliant 4-litre V8 engine was also later offered, as was a 4.4-litre which addressed the lack of torque of the smaller engined car. Fabulous in Cosmos Black, this extremely rare example was specified when new with a Nappa leather interior in Gaucho (tan). The 840 is fitted from new with the full M-Sport package of aerodynamics and suspension modifications (including the Nurburgring suspension system). The first private owner, Major James Winship, kept the car from 1997 until 2010, at which point the 840 passed via specialist Munich Legends to our current vendor. With just over 14,000 miles recorded, and complete with all correct books, tools, keys, current and previous MOT certificates and invoices for works completed, this is by far the lowest mileage 8-series we have seen. An opportunity not to be missed.

1967 Honda S800 One of only 15 UK-delivered cars Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £18,000 - £23,000
Not surprisingly, considering that it was – and still is – the world’s largest producer of motorcycles, Honda’s first sports cars featured technology borrowed from its Grand Prix-winning two-wheelers. Engines were all-aluminium, twin-overhead-camshaft, four-cylinder units with roller bearings used throughout, and the early 531cc S500 and 606cc S600 models employed a part-chain transmission. Introduced in 1965 at the Tokyo Motor Show, the last-of-the-line 791cc S800 retained the separate ladderframe chassis and chain drive of its predecessors. After approximately 1,000 cars had been produced, the S800 adopted a more conventional final drive consisting of a prop shaft and coil-sprung live rear axle located by radius arms and a Panhard rod. front disc brakes, replacing the original drums, were standardised soon after. Revving to 8,000rpm and with 70bhp on tap, the S800 was good for almost 100mph (161km/h) and more than capable of giving the larger ‘Spridgets’ and Spitfires a run for their money. Coupé and roadster versions of the S800 were offered, a total of approximately 11,500 being manufactured between 1965 and 1970. Today these Japanese ‘miniature E-Types’ enjoy a cult following and are catered for by a most enthusiastic owners’ club. With such a relatively large production run, incredibly only 96 right hand drive were made, and of these a mere 15 were destined for UK buyers. This particular example was registered new in November 1967, and remains in fine condition having spent the majority of its life on display in an office in a Honda dealership in Norway. The S800 is completely original with the exception of a repaint in the past, however pleasingly there are no signs of any corrosion repairs to the bodywork. A genuine alternative to the more commonplace Spridgets, Spitfires and MGBs, we just love this Bonsai Supercar, and we are sure the next owner will too!
1930 Roll-Royce 20/25 Landaulette by Mann Egerton Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: GX014
Estimate: £20,000 - £30,000
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 chauffeurdriven, 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 Rolls-Royce 20/25 offered here today, chassis number GXO14, was delivered new via Mann Egerton to a Mrs. M. Buckley with Landaulette bodywork. By 1988 GXO14 was in the ownership of a Mr G. Harding, the current vendors father, who is offering the car to market from single-family long term ownership. Offered at a very reasonable reserve, what a remarkable and elegant way to travel.
1963 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SDW299
Estimate: £30,000 - £35,000
The advent of the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Bentley ‘S’ series in 1955 was surely one of the main reasons behind the demise of most of the few remaining coachbuilders still producing bodies for Rolls-Royce and Bentley chassis. The Silver Dawn standard steel saloon, being effectively a Bentley in disguise, had not really intruded upon the coachbuilt Silver Wraith market. The Silver Cloud however, with Silver Wraith track and a longer wheelbase than that of the Silver Dawn, clothed with a beautifully proportioned body, was a far more formidable opponent. Here was a car which looked so ‘right’ that there was little incentive for customers to order bespoke coachwork, and soon afterwards both Freestone & Webb and Hooper ceased coachbuilding. Incorporating coil spring/wishbone front suspension with semi-elliptic rear springs and a single radius arm to locate the live rear axle, it also featured centralised lubrication and all-round drum brakes. Power was provided by the 4,887cc straight six engine of the Bentley R Type Continental producing an estimated 158bhp; notably for the first time, Rolls-Royce and Bentley models shared the same fourspeed automatic transmission, allowing a top speed of 100mph.
The Evolution Silver Cloud II and S2 models of 1959 used Rolls’ new light alloy V8 engine but otherwise differed from their predecessors only in having a long life chassis lubrication system, standard power steering, increased front braking effort, a reduction in rear roll stiffness, a new ventilation system and a revised facia. With an engine capacity of 6,230cc the V8 was also notably lighter and produced around
For the Silver Cloud III and S3 models introduced in October 1962, quickly distinguishable by four headlamps, the specification remained unchanged except for another increase of around 20hp, which lifted the top speed to 115mph. This wonderful Silver Cloud III has been with the current vendor for the last 22 years and has reportedly covered a mere 7,000 miles in that time. Finished in the original metallic blue paintwork and matching blue leather trim, this car is wonderfully original and showing a lovely patina. With just four owners from new and showing a current mileage of approximately 64,000, this superb example comes with an exhaustive history file dating back to the early 1960’s. The original service manuals, handbooks and tool kits are also with the car and we are told that this vast history fills the very spacious trunk of this car. An excellent car with extraordinary history that is well worth a closer inspection.
1973 Porsche 911T Targa Matching numbers Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 9113111029
Estimate: £40,000 - £50,000
Porsche’s long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter’s rear-engined 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 3 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower. The first of countless up-grades came in 1966 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, the increased urge raising top speed by 10mph to 135mph. The 911T was added to the Porsche line up in 1968 as the “Touring” form of the 911. It had the 2.0-litre engine, but with a performance output of 110bhp. The T was the base model, costing 10 percent less that its more powerful brother, the 911S. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911’s handling, and then in 1970 the engine underwent the first of many enlargements – to 2.2 litres. Tenacious adhesion, responsive steering, very good flexibility, superb brakes, meticulous finish and a solid, unburstable feel were just some of the virtues praised by Motor magazine in its test of a Porsche 911 in 1973. This beautiful example of the 911T Targa is presented in the original colour of Irish Green (code 1510) as corroborated by the Certificate of Authenticity in the history file. This matching numbers car benefitted from a complete engine rebuild in 2014/2015 by marque specialists RPM in Hertfordshire with invoices totalling approximately £6,000. Furnished with a UK V5C and current MOT, this superb and highly collectible Porsche is ready for a new enthusiast to take to the open road.
1964 Jaguar Mark II 3.4 Recent £30k+ refurbishment Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 159871DN
Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000
Although the Mk I was a great success, selling four times as many as the larger Jaguar saloons, Jaguar boss William Lyons was not content. He knew it could be improved. Happily, virtually every aspect that had been criticised received attention in the new MkII range introduced in October 1959. These cars were to rank among the best loved Jaguars ever made and are today regarded as classics. There were some detail changes, including a redesigned interior that was more modern but retained the traditional Jaguar image. Jaguar saloons led the field in production and touring car races during much of the 1960’s. Not surprisingly the quickest and most successful private entries came from John Coombs’ Jaguar dealership in Guilford. John Coombs had significant race experience and his dealership simply got it right for a fortunate few racing enthusiasts. Very early on that included Hill, Salvadori and Salmon. This fabulous 3.4 litre example was despatched when new in July 1962, finished in opalescent grey with a red leather interior. In long term ownership for many years, the Mark II enjoyed much mechanical, bodywork and trim restoration work in the late 1990s. This includes a bodywork restoration and refinish by R.S. Coachworks and a retrim in soft wine red leather, supported by bills for many thousands of pounds. In current ownership the car has been extremely well maintained by a former F1 race engineer, with no stone left unturned. It is estimated that £30,000+ has been spent on various improvements, which have included a full rewire, partial refinishing to the paint, attention to the engine and cooling, also brakes and suspension. Offered with a comprehensive history file, a new MOT certificate with no advisories, and much recent expenditure, this is a beautifully sorted, fabulous driving gentleman’s express.
1993 Mercedes-Benz E500 1 of 29 UK Delivered cars Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WDB1240361C038283
Estimate: £30,000 - £40,000
From 1991 to 1994, Mercedes-Benz sold a high-performance version of the W124, the Mercedes-Benz 500 E (W124.036). The 500 E was created in close cooperation with Porsche. With its engineering department being fully occupied with the development of the new S-Class, Mercedes-Benz commissioned Porsche in 1989 to redesign the W124 chassis to shoehorn the 5.0L V8 used in the SL into it, along with the necessary changes on the suspension system and drive train. When the car was ready, it was found that its widened fenders didn’t fit through the W124 assembly line in Sindelfingen in three places. Hence Porsche was also commissioned to assemble the car. The 500 E had a naturally aspirated 5-Litre V8 engine derived from the 500 SL roadster. Sports car braking performance also came from SL components: front SL 500 300mm disks with 4-piston callipers came installed on the 1992 and early 1993 cars. The later 1993, and all 1994 cars came with the upgraded 320mm set taken from the 600 SL. Rear brakes on all years were 278mm brakes from the 500 SL. The 500 E was only supplied with four seats in left hand drive, with the four leather seats supplied by Recaro. Called the ‘Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing’ by the press, performance tests of the day yielded impressive results: 0–62 mph times of 5.5 to 6.0 seconds. The top speed was redline limited at 6,000rpm to 160mph. This rare UK delivered facelift model is presented in blue black paintwork with black leather interior. There is a full service history in the file and has formed part of a private collection for several years. Described to be in excellent condition throughout and supplied with a UK V5C and current MOT, this autobahn powerhouse is a excellent proposition.
1971 Morgan Plus 8 - With one family from new Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 876484
Estimate: £23,000 - £28,000
Searching for new engines in the 1960s, Morgan concluded a deal with Rover for supply of its all-aluminium 3.5-litre V8, thus creating a car that combined Vintageera charm with Cobra-like ‘grunt’: the Plus 8. Morgan’s Plus 4 chassis, strengthened and extended, formed the basis of the new car, while the existing Moss four-speed gearbox was retained also. After a successful debut at the 1968 London Motor Show, production commenced at the rate of 15-or-so cars per month and continues to this day, although now with BMW power. While the traditionally styled Morgan’s bricklike aerodynamics restricted top speed to around 125mph (more than fast enough for most people driving an open car) the Rover V8’s 168bhp and 210lb/ft of torque made for supercar-league performance through the gears. Indeed, in its later 3.9-litre form, the Plus 8 proved quicker to 80mph than the contemporary Porsche 911 Turbo. Amazingly this early Plus 8 has been in the ownership of one family for 47 years, with a no-expense spared restoration recently conducted to a very high standard. The restoration was extensive and started with the car being stripped down to the bare chassis with all metalwork was media-blasted and powder coated. The ash frame was restored and minor sections replaced where required. The front and rear wings were have been replaced with beautifully hand-formed light weight aluminium units, manufactured by specialist Techniques. The Morgan was then reassembled with re-conditioned or replacement components as appropriate, such as petrol tank top (with new fuel lines), a new larger and more efficient aluminium radiator, braided oil cooler pipes, new Wilwood brake calipers and restored rear brake drums. The electrics have been completely renewed with a new Morgan loom, and an engine immobiliser with a fuel cut-off switch behind the seats. The interior of the car has been completely re-trimmed by a renowned classic/vintage car specialist with top quality carpets, door trim and a restored leather-covered dashboard. The seats were rebuilt and upholstered using top quality leather from the Netherlands and finished with red piping. A new red Mohair soft-top was fabricated also with a matching spare wheel cover. The car has the original Morgan Motor Company alloy wheels, refurbished with new tyres fitted all round. We understand the engine has had a full service and runs smoothly and cleanly. As testament to the length of ownership and affection bestowed on their Morgan, the family have taken great care and investment into its restoration. As such the Plus 8 is finished beautifully and drives extremely nicely. Finished in its original Ivory White with a Wine red leather interior, and with 56,000 miles recorded, this is by far one of the nicest Morgans we have seen in a long time. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1964 Morris Mini Cooper S Mark 1 Wood & Pickett Conversion Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: K-A2S4/985341-A
Estimate: £40,000 - £50,000
The notion that the Mini might have a future as anything other than basic transport was an anathema, the idea of a high-performance version was laughable. One man though, saw it quite differently. Racing car manufacturer John Cooper already knew quite a bit about tuning BMC’s A-Series engine, he was running the company’s Formula Junior effort at the time and a test drive in a prototype Mini convinced him of the car’s competition potential. The Mini Cooper soon established its credentials as a rally and race winner and the stage was set for even faster versions. The first of these, the 1071cc Mini Cooper ‘S’ of 1963, took engine development a stage further and provided the basis for the 971 ‘S’ and 1275 ‘S’ of 1964. This wonderfully original Cooper S Mark 1 is more than a little unusual. This particular car was bought by a wealthy American Rolls Royce and Bentley collector, along with a Mini 850 for his wife, in the very early 1970’s. He then decided to send the Cooper S to the legendary craftsman at Wood & Pickett in around 1973, for a full no-expense-spared makeover. It was here that the car was repainted in the eye-catching Emerald Green metallic paint and the interior was re-trimmed in sumptuous contrasting orange Connolly leather. The list of extras and upgrades is exhaustive but notable are the rectangular Cibie headlights with recessed spotlights in the grille, a Hollandia fold back sun roof and folding rear bench seat with access to the boot for extra storage. The two Minis were exported to New York after this and then passed to Bob Grossman, an exotic car dealer who had raced Cunningham Jaguars at Le Mans in the 1960’s. Extraordinarily, this Cooper S is showing some 10,000 miles from new which the vendor believes to be accurate given previous sales listings and copies of original letters written by a past owner. It also featured in an article in Cooper World, written by Steve Burkinshaw who is an expert with regards to coach built minis. This magazine can be found in the history file and details of some recent recommissioning work carried out by the current vendor. A truly unique Mini in so many respects, a Mark 1 with such low mileage would itself be hard to find; an unrestored car, even harder. But an unrestored Mark 1 with exceptionally low mileage and a full Wood & Pickett conversion must be one of a kind. Certainly worth a closer inspection and undeniably a car worthy of any collection, be it Minis or Rolls Royce’s.
1972 BMW E9 CSi Right-Hand Drive Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 2262705
Estimate: £50,000 - £60,000
With BMW looking to push the marque further upmarket, the combination of their bahn-storming six cylinder engine and a pretty but underpowered Coupé in its portfolio, it was almost inevitable that the two would get together. The resulting E9 Coupé is one of BMW’s best ever Coupés. British buyers had to wait until 1969 before they could sample the new car and shortly after, in 1971, the 3.0 CS made its debut with another 10bhp and more torque for better flexibility. This year also saw the introduction of this car – the 3.0 CSI fuel injected version, and with more power it became BMW’s first 200bhp plus machine. It was always an expensive machine at some £6,000 when new in 1971 – that would have bought you a Porsche 911 of the period or even an entry-level Ferrari. In recent years, prices of its big brother, the legendary CSL have rapidly risen to a whole new league with the CSI’s tipped to follow. For homologation purposes, 500 right-hand drive and a further 500 left-hand drive CSL’s were made. Comparing this to the modest total of 207 right-hand drive CSi’s made, truly puts it into perspective how rare a car these are. This lovely right-hand drive CSi was purchased by the vendor five years ago. During his ownership the car has received a vast amount of work, both mechanical and cosmetic. Bills totalling in excess of £20,000, found in the car’s history file, account for the cars current overall condition. Fitted with newly trimmed velour interior and its original Webasto roof, this very rare car is ready to be enjoyed by its next custodian!
1958 Jaguar XK150 Fixed Head Coupe Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: S825947DN
Estimate: £45,000 - £50,000
The final rendition of the XK appeared in May 1957. Easily identifiable by its higher scuttle and door line, and much wider grille, the XK150 retained the mechanical layout of its predecessor; in 210bhp XK150 S form, however, it marked a Jaguar first in having all-round disc brakes, an asset with 0-60mph acceleration of 8.5 seconds and a 125mph maximum. For 1960, the penultimate year of production, the 3,781cc engine was fitted, which in S guise produced 265bhp, sufficient for 132mph and 0-60mph in just 7.5 seconds. Part of the noted ‘Blackhawk Collection’ for many years in Danville California, prior to returning to the UK in the 1990s, this lovely original example was built when new to high performance Special Equipment specification, and fitted with an overdrive gearbox. Although never completely restored the XK benefits from much recent attention, and so still shows a delightful patina often missing from freshly restored examples. We understand the XK starts readily, the 3.4 litre engine pulls well and shows good compression and oil pressure, and with the overdrive switch flicked is perfect for longer distance journeys. A full stainless steel exhaust has been fitted along with recent master and slave cylinders, also new brake pads and discs. Brand new chrome wire wheels have been mounted on each corner. Overall this is a good original Jaguar in fine order and as such it has a lovely feel to it. Offered with comprehensive file of invoices for works completed, we are delighted to be able to supply this lovely XK to the lucky next owner.
1996 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta Right Hand Drive Manual example Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFXR41C000106659
Estimate: £65,000 - £75,000
Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 1994, the Ferrari F355 Berlinetta was styled by Pininfarina and would be the successor to the ageing 348. It brought about a number of technological improvements that made it one of the best performing Ferraris of all time. The main features were the power steering and the electronically controlled variable damping; the damping made all the difference, as it could make the car totally comfortable whilst cruising, but it could also instantly stiffen up as the driver pushed the car harder. All in all, the 355 was far more forgiving and drivable than the 348, making for a much more enjoyable experience overall. The 355 nomenclature signified a new 3.5-litre engine with five valves per cylinder, which meant more performance in a lighter package, resulting in much higher revving than its predecessor. In its time, this engine was state of the art and featured a new engine management system and a larger, more sophisticated exhaust system, which meant drastically improved performance. Top speed was 183mph and 0–60mph was an impressive 4.7 seconds, whilst a 0–100mph run took just 10.7 seconds. This engine produced what is considered by many to be the best Ferrari V8 sound of all time. This wonderful original right hand drive, manual example of the F355 is showing a current mileage of approximately 52,000 and has been in the current ownership for the last 11 years. Presented in the typical Ferrari livery of Rosso Corsa with elegant crema leather interior, this particular F355 benefits from having the exceptionally rare factory fitted sports seats. Described to be in truly excellent condition in every respect, this car had a full service in July this year which also included having the cam belts changed. There is an extensive history file and service book showing a full service history with many bills and receipts for works carried out. Superbly cared for and cherished, this is an F355 that would be a credit to any collector and is worth a detailed inspection.
1999 Porsche 996 GT3 Series 1 Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: WPOZZZ992YS690888
Estimate: £48,000 - £53,000
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.
This desirable Left Hand Drive example has been with just two owners from new, and has been well cared for over the years, showing just 32,000 kilometres recorded and supplied with a file of history. The most recent owner has had the car for 16 years, during which time it has been dry stored and used sparingly. All in all a fine example of Porscheâ€™s trackorientated modern classic.
1930 Packard Deluxe Eight Roadster 745 Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: 183412
Estimate: £170,000 - £180,000
The seventh series (1930 model) encompassed three sub-series: the Standard Eight, Speedster and Custom & Deluxe Eight (respective references 740 and 745). The latter represented Packard’s top of the range, and were fitted with the largest engine in existence: an in-line eight-cylinder 6.4-litre with side valves, developing a modest 106bhp at 3000rpm, but with generous torque, and impressively quiet. The bodies of such exceptional cars were, of course, assigned to such leading names as LeBaron, Brewster, Dietrich and Rollston. More than 11 different chassis models were available for the 745, which had front seats and adjustable steering (for clients without a chauffeur), laminated glass windows, and dual-mounted spare wheels, among other luxury fittings. The 745 Roadster is arguably the most beautifully designed option for the seventh series and fitted with dickie seats in the rear and telescopic windscreen, in many ways, this dashing and well-proportioned style, which was so appropriate to country estates and summer homes, defined the 1930s Classic Era.
This outstanding roadster, with its stunning colours and dedication to authenticity, is a car that gathers its fair share of stares; while also offering the ultimate experience on any tour. The Packard Company slogan, ‘Ask the man who owns one,’ was never more clearly defined than in this beautiful roadster from Packard’s past.
Offered from a prestigious private Packard collection where it has remained over the past 16 years, this wonderful example has been fastidiously maintained during this time. Its owner, wielding a no-expense spared mentality when it comes down to the upkeep of his cars, with this one being no exception, enjoys driving his cars! Attending numerous concourse events and rally’s over the years, including winning National First Prize at the Automobile club of America in 1975, more recently # 183412 has taken part in several Alpine Rally’s including the renowned Kitzbüheler, said to be one of the most beautiful classic car events in the Alps. Fitted with 6 firestone Gum F Dipped high-speed heavy-duty tires, and also offered with 4 winter tires, and luggage case on its steel luggage rack. The Packard 745 is a rare car of which just 1,789 produced, with approximately only 50 being roadsters and it’s estimated that less than ten still exist. 1930 was the only year that the 145.5-inch wheelbase Super Eight Packard was produced, making this 745 Roadster one of the most special and iconic cars of all time.
1957 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Rare Right Hand Drive Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 1210427500822
Estimate: £120,000 - £140,000
Alongside its hyper-expensive race-bred sports car – the 300SL – Mercedes-Benz offered the less exotic but no less refined 190 SL. Announced in 1954 and based on the 180 saloon whose all-independently-suspended running gear it used, the 190 SL did not enter production until January 1955, the delay being caused by alterations aimed at strengthening the saloon’s shortened platform to compensate for the open body’s reduced stiffness. “Very few new sports cars have been so eagerly awaited or so long in coming as the moderately priced SL version of the Mercedes-Benz,” observed Road & Track magazine. Mounted on a detachable sub-frame along with the four-speed manual gearbox, front suspension and steering, the power unit was a 1,897cc overhead-camshaft four – the first such engine ever to feature in a Mercedes-Benz. Breathing through twin Solex downdraft carburettors, the M121 unit produced 105bhp at 5,700rpm, an output sufficient to propel the 190SL to 100km/h in 13 seconds, and onto a top speed of 170km/h. The fact that the 190’s ride was more boulevard than sporting, and that many contemporary sports cars could out-perform it while costing a good deal less, did nothing to deter buyers. The model was a big hit in the USA, where many of the 26,000-odd vehicles produced between 1955 and 1963 found homes. A rare right hand drive example, this 190 SL underwent a comprehensive restoration under the previous ownership. Supplied with matching hardtop and running the original Solex carburrettors, this car is described to be in excellent condition throughout. There is a good history file, UK V5C and current MOT for peace of mind.
1960 Mercedes 220SE Cabriolet 1 of only 17 examples produced in Right Hand Drive Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 128030-20-003007
Estimate: £100,000 - £130,000
Mercedes-Benz reintroduced six-cylinder models to its range in 1951 with the 220 and 300 types, both of which were shown at the Frankfurt Show in the spring of that year. Both featured single overhead camshaft engines with the valves set across the head, rather than in line, and actuated by rockers. The 220 was powered by a 2,195cc six-cylinder engine producing 80bhp at 4,600rpm, good enough for a top speed of 100mph with acceleration to match, while the gearbox was an all-synchromesh fourspeeder with column change. A separate chassis was retained for these models, which were replaced in 1956 by a new range featuring unitary construction bodyshells employing large, box-section side-members – hence the term ‘Ponton’ – the others being the 190 and 219. All-round coil-sprung independent suspension had long been a fixture of the Mercedes-Benz range, and that of the newcomers benefited from the newly developed single-pivot rear swing axle. A shorter wheelbase was adopted for the cabriolet model that appeared in May 1956 and also for the coupé introduced the following year when the Hydrak semiautomatic transmission become available as an option. Luxuriously equipped in the best Daimler-Benz tradition, these superbly constructed Gran Turismos were priced some 70% above the 220S saloon. In 1958 the 220 range was updated with a fuel-injected version of the 2.2-litre overhead-camshaft six, becoming the 220SE, though manufacture of the carburettorequipped models continued into 1959, the saloons bowing out in July and the coupé and cabriolet in October of that year. By the time production ceased, only 3,429 220S coupé and cabriolet models had been manufactured and today these elegant and exclusive limited edition Grand Tourers are highly prized. First registered in May 1960, this exceedingly rare matching numbers fuel-injected W128 model is one of only 17 produced in Right Hand Drive format. The 220SE has been with its current owner for in the region of 30 years after he purchased the car from a the previous long term owner, a retired Army officer in West London. During the current ownership the Mercedes-Benz has benefited from restoration and repair works by leading marque specialists such as John Haynes. Notably the bodywork has been restored and refinished in its original shade of Mittelblau (blue), the wood and chrome refinished, and the interior retrimmed. Offered for the first time in many years, and one of only a handful remaining, this is a unique opportunity for the serious Mercedes-Benz collector. Buyers should satisfy themselves prior to sale as to the condition of each lot and should exercise and rely on their own judgement as to whether the lot accords with its description. Coys accepts no liability for the accuracy of these particulars.
1988 Jaguar XJ-S Convertible Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £11,000 - £14,000
The XJ-S had been under development since 1968 and as a 2+2 fixed head coupe was intended as a replacement for the now legendary E-type. From the beginning it was only available with the V12 engine which gave excellent performance with 0-60mph being dispatched in a very respectable 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 150mph. Later in the XJ-S’s life it was also available with a six cylinder engine and a manual gearbox. As with any vehicle that has had as long a production life as the XJ-S there have been major developments. One of the more significant ones for the XJ-S was the launch of the convertible in May 1988. The XJ-S V12 Convertible on offer is beautifully presented in Signal Red with a magnolia leather interior, and we understand shows a mere 63,000 miles from new. Opening the history file we can see a total of 17 service stamps in the schedule, with an additional file of further invoices and previous MOT certificates. More recently the XJ-S has benefitted from new front brake discs and pads, rear calipers and an overhaul to the air conditioning system. Supplied with the original service and handbook, and complete with its original tonneau cover and Jaguar tool kit, this is one of the nicest examples we have seen for some time.
1934 Riley Lynx 12/6 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 44T2028
Estimate: £37,000 - £42,000
Riley’s 9hp four-cylinder twin-cam engine was one of the most advanced of its day, so it can have caused little surprise when the Coventry manufacturer created its first six by, in effect, adding a pair of cylinders to the existing design. Hailed as ‘The Wonder Car Plus Two’, the first 14hp, 1.6-litre six-cylinder models duly appeared in 1929, followed by 12hp, 1.5-litre versions in 1933. Today, as with all Coventry-built Rileys, the Lynx is highly sought after, particularly in its rare 6-cylinder form. For 1934 the desirable pre-selector gearbox was an option. Fitted with the sporty pre-selector gearbox, this wonderful 12/6 Lynx was purchased by its current owner in 2010 and subsequently had its engine overhauled by Blue Diamond in 2012. At the same time, the essential high-ratio differential was fitted helping this particular example reach the excellent performant that is has today. Over the years the owner has fastidiously maintained the car having a new SU fuel pump fitted, rewound the dynamo and modified it to twin-carbs for improved performance. Its original carb and manifold are offered with the car and can be refitted little effort if the new owner would wish to do so. With only two previous owners recorded from new, and offered with an extensive history containing a swathe of old invoices dating back many years, one would be hard-pressed to find a lovelier example than the one offered here today.
1974 Lamborghini Espada Series II Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 9414
Estimate: £100,000 - £120,000
In 1963 Ferruccio Lamborghini took the motoring world by storm by announcing a brand new high performance gran turismo, the 350GTV. In production form this outrageous machine was toned down and sold as the 350GT, this in turn becoming the 400GT. Two years later Lamborghini stunned the public still further with the introduction of the amazing Miura. While the public and competitors alike were still catching their breath the Marzal was unveiled, a flamboyant proposal for a luxury full four seater, incorporating many novel features, including a rear mounted straight six engine. Lamborghini, born under the sign of the bull, hence the charging bull insignia, adopted bull fighting terms for the names of his cars and his new four seater was to be no exception. Espada, as the car was called, is the sword used by the matador to deliver the fatal wound. Lamborghini once again stole the Geneva show in 1968 with the Espada, styled by Marcello Gandini, the genius who heads Bertone’s design studio and whose other designs include the Marzal, Countach, Diablo, Lancia Stratos and Cizeta V16. Despite its incredible styling the car was comparatively conventional, incorporating a pressed steel semi-monocoque built by Marchesi in Modena, into the front of which was placed the 4 litre quad camshaft V12 engine from the 400GT, mated to a 5 speed gearbox. 320bhp was sufficient to propel the car’s four occupants to over 150mph., while they lounged in sumptuous leather upholstery, cooled by air conditioning. The Espada was the fastest full four-seater in the world, and even forty years later few cars come close to matching its towering abilities.
Remaining in single ownership over the last 20 years; from 1997 until June 2017, during this time, this lovely example of the second iteration of the Espada has been maintained by Lamborghini Specialist John Hartland, formerly known as the restoration company Motorapide. With a swathe of invoices dating right back to the 90s, it is clear that this car has been very well looked after! Included in the cars comprehensive history file are over 20 MOTâ€™s also dating back to the mid-90s. More recently in 2016, the car underwent a comprehensive restoration costing ÂŁ30,000, again overseen by John Hartland under his new company Hartlandmotorsport, and is now found in excellent condition throughout.
1974 Ferrari Dino - Right Hand Drive example Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 0732
Estimate: £190,000 - £230,000
This classic and nowadays much sought-after Ferrari was named after Enzo Ferrari’s son Alfredino, who died in 1956, aged 24. Enzo Ferrari credits his son with the inspiration for a series of successful small and medium capacity V6 racing engines built by Ferrari from 1956, and in turn the name was given to a new line of mid-engined production Ferrari V6 coupés which first went on sale in 1969 in two-litre form. The definitive 246 Dino, with its 2.4 litre V6, appeared in late 1969 and fewer than 4,000 were built (about 1,200 of them the detachable roof Spyder version) before introduction of the slightly larger, and completely re-styled V8 engined 308 Dino in 1973. The delightful bodywork was designed by Pininfarina, and was built in steel by Scaglietti. It covered a straightforward chassis of tubular steel which carried wishbone independent suspension at each corner. The compact engine, with four chain-driven overhead camshafts, was mounted transversely above the five-speed gearbox and just ahead of the rear axle line, allowing both a comfortable cockpit and usable boot space. With its flexible engine, uncomplicated chassis and outstanding handling, and superb looks the 246 Dino is a true classic the like of which has made the name Ferrari possibly the most revered of all motor manufacturers. It is certainly one of the most collectible of all Seventies sports cars.
This rare late matching numbers right-hand-drive Dino was ordered on the 15th August 1973 by then agents Sytner as part of their October allocation of cars. Order #654 was confirmed by the factory on 13th September 1973, noting the black paint and red cloth inserts as extras, and delivered to Maranello Concessionaires by truck late in 1973. The Dino arrived at S.G.M. (Garage) Ltd. of Newcastle in January of 1974, finished in its specified non-standard Nero black paintwork with a Nero interior featuring cloth inserts and red carpeting. Notably this is one of only 63 known cars finished in Nero from new. The Dino is complete with a detailed ownership history which outlines the keepers from new until the present day. Additionally we note it is supplied with the original jack, jack bag, and tool roll complete with a partial tool set. Marque expert Tony Willis, after checking with the Ferrari factory has confirmed that the chassis, engine gearbox and assembly/body numbers do all match. This beautiful Dino is offered with a copy of the original green registration document in addition to a file of past invoices and MOT certificates. Showing 42,000 miles recorded, this is a fine example of the classic Dino model, offered in a highly desirable specification.
1989 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Volante Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SCKCV8V7KTL15774
Estimate: ÂŁ200,000 - ÂŁ250,000
Whilst some V8 Volantes had already been fitted with Vantage engines, plans for a production V8 Vantage Volante began back in 1984 under the internal code name of DP2014 or V8 Volante HP. Rather than just install the high-performance Vantage engine into the existing car, the opportunity for a radical updating of the now 20-year-old design was taken. The original stylist of the DBS, DBS V8 and AM V8, William Towns, was engaged to update his earlier V8 design and bring it up-to-date for the mid-1980s. Starting with the Brunei Vantage Volante, Towns flared the arches further still and blended them into extended side skirts. The look was certainly in keeping with the times and made the Vantage Volante the most muscular V8 of all, 63 mm wider than the regular Volante. Strangely, the new 1980s re-styling of the Vantage Volante remained unique to the model and was not carried over to the Vantage saloon. Another crucial update was to the hood which gained a third electrically operated latch to prevent it being torn off at the high speeds the car was designed for. With stiffer suspension and yet more power, the new car was beefed up further with new pick-up points and more bracing. Over its three-year production run, the total number of V8 Vantage Volantes of all derivatives was 194, the one on offer here today being the only example of its specification delivered new to Switzerland. Rolling off the production-line in 1989, #15774 is believed to be the last but one car built by Aston Martin before the Ford acquisition of the marque. Supplied uniquely to the first of its three owners, with Aston factory fitted twin spoke Borrani wire wheels and documentation of the sale is available in its file.
This special request by its first owner caused so much consternation, with Aston Martin at first refusing to fit the wheels and warrant the vehicle, stating that the 450bhp 5.3 litre V8 engine would produce too much torque for the strength of the wheels. There followed a great deal of correspondence between Borrani and Aston before suitably designed double-spoked strengthened wheels were fitted. The AMOC are aware of only one other AMV8 similarly equipped. During its second period of ownership, the car had initially returned to Newport Pagnell for a complete overhaul before joining a number of vehicles on permanent display over many years. During this time, only a few hundred kilometres were added to the odometer before eventually returning to its owner in Germany. Subsequently purchased by its current custodian some 14 years ago, he himself collected and drove the car from Munich back to his home in the South of France where it was enjoyed in the French Riviera. Eventually patriating the car to England, it then then received an engine rebuild and eventually a comprehensive restoration by marque specialists such as the renowned Grange of Exeter and Nostalgia cars of Taunton. Having been restored to its original splendour and being of unique specification, naturally the car was selected and featured in the Aston-martin owners club magazine. So fastidious is the owner that in preparation for sale, the car has just received a restoration of the car’s walnut interior trimmings.
1971 Mercedes 280SE 3.5 Coupe Rare Right-Hand-Drive example with recent £48,000 restoration Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 11102622003373
Estimate: £70,000 - £80,000
The 3.5-litre version of the 280SE typifies the resurgence of larger-engined Mercedes-Benz models that began in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when the progressive easing of fiscal constraints, which had dissuaded customers from buying cars with large capacity engines, encouraged the German manufacturer to offer bigger, more potent power units. Thus, the ultra-luxurious 280SE Coupé/Cabriolet and 300SEL saloon were the models chosen by Mercedes-Benz to launch its magnificent new 3.5-litre V8 engine in 1969. An over-square design featuring a cast-iron block and aluminium alloy cylinder heads, each equipped with a single overhead camshaft, this all-new, state-of-the-art power unit produced 200bhp courtesy of Bosch electronic fuel injection and transistorised ignition. Thus equipped, the Coupé/Cabriolet was good for 125mph with 60mph whispering by in 9.5 seconds, a substantial improvement on the six-cylinder version’s figures.
Although the equivalent SEL Saloon used the ‘New Generation’ bodyshell, the Coupé and Cabriolet kept the elegant coachwork that had debuted back in 1959 on the 220SE and, as befitted top-of-the-range luxury models came equipped with automatic transmission, air conditioning, power windows and stereo radio as standard. Significantly, the 280SE 3.5 was to be the final model to feature this long-established and much-admired body style, and today these last-of-the-line classics are highly sought after by discerning Mercedes-Benz collectors. But it’s not just their rarity that makes them so desirable since they also represent some of the quickest Mercedes of that era.
The most prestigious of the 280SE CoupĂŠ and Cabriolet variants is the 3.5 litre V8 model made for just two years from 1969 to 1971, the majority of these in left-hand drive. This absolutely beautiful example is offered with a huge amount of history which dates back to the 1970s. The 280se was maintained by London-based main agents until the mid-1980s, at which point marque specialists such as Steve Redfern, Roger Edwards and Schmitt Autos took on servicing and restoration works. The previous owner spent in excess of ÂŁ60,000 over a ten years period, resulting on one of the very best of this model that we have seen. A superb example of one the most stylish models ever produced by MercedesBenz.
1977 Ferrari 308 GTB ‘Vetroresina’ Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 21241
Estimate: £100,000 - £120,000
Officially introduced at the Paris Salon in October 1975, the 308 GTB’s styling was created by Pininfarina. The stunning two seat coachwork was all new, but incorporated all of the old magic by blending aspects of the Dino 206/246 with the later 365 GT4/BB. Reminiscent of the Boxer was the dihedral groove at bumper level splitting top and bottom, the plunging nose and the sail panels reaching back to meet a shallower spoiler, while the conical side air intakes and recessed concave rear window were familiar from the Dino. The 308 GTB employed a tubular steel chassis with independent coil spring/wishbone suspension front and rear, complimented by anti-roll bars, adjustable dampers and powerful disc brakes. At its heart was a Formula One derived, all alloy, four camshaft 3.0 litre V8 engine, allied to a transversely mounted five-speed gearbox. The very first 308 GTBs produced, until the end of 1976, were the fastest and best handling thanks to a fibreglass body that weighed substantially less than the steel coachwork which replaced it. These first cars also featured race-bred dry sump lubrication which again was replaced after a short period in favour of the less expensive wet sump.
Purchased by the current vendor in 1977, the year that the car rolled out of the factory, this particularly rare and original RHD Vetroresina has been meticulously looked after over the years. Offered with a swathe of old invoices, this car has recently had a comprehensive service with bills in excess of £3,000 from Maranello. With only one previous owner from new, it is a very rare UK right hand drive specification Ferrari 308 ‘Vetroresina’. Finished in Nero over Nero, this car is not only a very fun car to drive, but also unique and as such an excellent investment opportunity. Having traveled a mere 43,500 miles from new, this mid-engine Ferrari is made ever more interesting considering the overall high mileage of most 308’s on the market today.
1938 BMW 328 Roadster Mille Miglia Eligible Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 85188
Estimate: £450,000 - £475,000
Bayerische Motoren Werke grew from the merger of two aero engine manufacturers during World War I. The post war rules forbidding the manufacture of aeronautical machinery forced the company to look in a different direction. Initially concentrating on motorcycles and heavy trucks, the first automobile design was a licensed version of the British Austin Seven, acquired with the purchase of Dixi-Werke of Eisenach with the BMW badge applied for the first time in January 1929. Larger automobiles followed, including the Type AM in 1932, the Type 303 in 1933 and the Type 315 of 1934. The 326 introduced at the Berlin Motor Show in 1936 was a significant development as it was the company’s first four door saloon and its two litre, 50 horsepower engine would go on to be the basis of one of the most iconic powerplants of the period either side of the Second World War. It was the 328 which garnered the most attention however as it featured a new crossflow cylinder head with state of the art hemispherical combustion chambers and an ingenious arrangement of horizontal pushrods operating the exhaust valves which gave twin cam performance with less complexity and lower cost. So highly regarded was this engine that the design was obtained by Bristol Cars after the war and with little modification it went on to power cars built by Bristol and AC amongst others with great success into the 1960s. The shortened twin-tube chassis of the 328 featured a glorious streamlined two seat body which allowed the standard car to achieve a top speed of 96 miles per hour though a lightweight prototype and with a higher compression engine was clocked at over 100 mph at Brooklands in the hands of renowned British driver Sammy Davis. The racing potential of the 328 was soon demonstrated with a 2 litre class win in the 1938 Mille Miglia and again at Le Mans in 1939 and an outright victory at the Mille Miglia in 1940. Only 462 328’s were built before production ended in 1939 making them a rare and highly collectible sports car with an exceptional racing pedigree.
Chassis 85188 was brought from Germany approximately a decade ago to the UK and restored utilising the specialist services of TT Workshop in London, one of the world’s leading 328 specialists, and Bristol Engineering in Wiltshire, both highly regarded bespoke restorers, where the car was restored between 2009 and 2011. Completed in 2012, no corners were cut to bring this rare German 1930s sports car to the condition that it is in today. With FIVA identity card number 041157, which confirms the above details and states very clearly ‘The car remains in original condition’, which is extremely important. There is a raft of invoices in the car’s history file as well as a full and comprehensive expert’s report on the vehicle, dated 29th August 2016, which clearly outlines the condition, history and value of this rare and important machine. The bodywork is finished in white with the dash featuring contrasting elegant cream dials. New trim is fitted throughout including a new hood, wet weather gear to keep the elements at bay, new carpets and seats fully re-trimmed in black leather. The car is complete with a UK registration document and also a FIVA passport. The 328 really is one of the great driving pre-war cars, often considered to equal many of the post war sports cars for their handling and speed. Whether you want to compete in the Mille Miglia, race, rally or simply enjoy it on the road at the weekends, there are few greater and more versatile sports cars in which to do it. 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.

1962 Bentley S2 Continental Drophead Coupe Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: BC111CZ
Estimate: Refer Department
Introduced in the autumn of 1959 and described as ‘arguably the best looking’ by Martin Bennett’ in his book ‘Bentley Continental’, the S2 version typically cost some 40% more than the equivalent standard steel saloon and was definitely the preserve of a privileged few. The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II and Bentley S2 appeared externally unchanged from their Silver Cloud and S-Type predecessors, though their performance was considerably enhanced by the new 6,230cc aluminium-alloy engine producing approximately 25% more power than the old six. It offered high-speed travel in silence and luxury. The Continental version steered away from its oftenstandard steel sister and was usually coachbuilt. The firms of H. J. Mulliner, Park Ward, James Young and Hooper all offered handcrafted bodies on the Continental S2 chassis. Of the 388 S2 Continentals made, just 125 came draped with bodies from the Willesden firm and, with such illustrious heritage going right back to the early days of W. O. Bentley and his engineering company in nearby Cricklewood, they could often be found on the Côte d’Azur and St. Moritz. This example sports an early example of Park Ward’s influential ‘straight-through wing’ body style and proved popular; it offered a feeling of speed and elegance. Importantly a rare factory drophead model, it was initially sold into stock at R. S. Mead Ltd. of Maidenhead before selling to a Mr. Ferranti on North Wales with a registration of 95 DXY in April, 1962. The S2 came with electrically operated windows, a power operated hood and hood cover, Dunlop Roadspeed tubeless tyres and luggage straps. It is worth noting that it also came with a heavy-gauge frame, UR 4743. In 1965, the car passed to a Mr. Fattorini of Ilkley, Yorkshire. By 1990 the Bentley was purchased by Mr. Eddie Shah. Famous for a number of media empires and for a diverse portfolio of interests, Eddie Shah caught the public eye when he ‘left’ the Manchester Evening News and launched the Today newspaper and Messenger Newspaper Group. He quickly found his footing and soon, with a few more titles under his belt, rocked the political establishment by using anti-trade union laws introduced by Margaret Thatcher’s governments to defeat the print unions. The unions were hog-tying British industry and Eddie Shah, to his credit, bought them to the negotiating table. Upon purchasing the S2, Mr. Shah invested just over £12,000 in improving his new purchase, before the Bentley passed to a Mr. Caldwell in 1994, and then to a Mr. Kent 2003. Mr. Kent then rebuilt the rear springs, replaced the main shaft and renovated the driver’s seat to the tune of nearly £4,000. In 2017 and in new ownership the S2 has enjoyed much attention, notably (at a cost of £5500) a new power steering ram, fuel pump, rear shock absorbers, washer pump, tyres and battery. Additionally the Bentley saw some remedial work to the sill and floor areas, thorough waxoiling, various adjustments to the windows and doors, lights and electrical system. Further works by Gordon Dale of Brentford in 2017 included a service and overhaul of the braking system (to the tune of £4900). Supplied with a copy of the original build sheet and older V5 registration documents, current and older MoT certificates, and copies of various invoices for works completed over the years, all in all this is a fantastic proposition, with much work already completed and ready to loved and enjoyed by its next owner.
1959 Facel Vega HK 500 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 0420
Estimate: £50,000 - £70,000
The advertising slogan for the Facel Vega HK500 put it in a nutshell: “For the Few Who Own the Finest”. The few included Pablo Picasso, Ringo Starr, Tony Curtis, Ava Gardner, Joan Fontaine and Maurice Trintignant. Stirling Moss spurned air travel in favour of driving his HK500 from race to race. Costing more than a Mercedes Gullwing and three times as rare, the HK500 exuded opulent exclusivity from every stunningly handsome pore. The brainchild of French industrialist and designer Jean Daninos, the Facel Vega marque was born in 1954 in a bid to keep Paris on the map as a centre of automotive excellence at a time when great French marques like Delahaye, Delage, Talbot Lago and Panhard were being driven to the wall by punitive government taxes on high performance vehicles. Aimed squarely at the export market and launched in 1958, the HK500 was the most powerful Facel yet, initially fitted with a 5.9-litre Chrysler V8 that was soon supplanted by an even bigger 6.3-litre unit that pumped out a colossal 360bhp and 425 lbs-ft of torque. Tested by Motor magazine, the car topped out at 145mph, hit 60mph in 8.4 seconds and ran the quarter mile in 16.3 seconds. Styled by Daninos, engineered by Jacques Brasseur and with a chassis developed by Lance Macklin of HWM racing fame, the HK500 went as well as it looked with a fit and finish that was second to none. Rust-resistant stainless steel was used for brightwork, while a lavish passenger cabin was trimmed in the finest leathers with a fabulous aircraft-like dashboard that looked like wood but was in fact painted stainless steel. Only 490 examples were made before production was phased out in 1961 to make way for the Facel II. This example of the Facel Vega HK500 recently uncovered and fresh to the market from long-term single family ownership, is finished in maroon with brown interior. The car is a unique barn find having been out or circulation for many years having been purchased by the current vendors father before being subject to long term storage. This example of the stunning French Grand Routier certainly a prospect any serious collector looking for a worth-while project.
1998 Ferrari 355 GTS Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFXR42B000113082
Estimate: ÂŁ45,000 - ÂŁ50,000
This lovely 355 is not only finished in the rare and sought-after colour combination of Nero Daytona over Nero, but is also one of the more desirable GTS variants, which delivers an exhilarating open-air driving experience while maintaining the sleek lines of the Berlinetta thanks to its removable Targa-style roof. Delivered new through Charles Pozzi in Paris in 1998, in the last couple of years this late example benefits from having had a comprehensive health-check by Maranello, in which it passed with flying colours. So fastidious is the nature of its current owner, that during the past couple of years he has spent over ÂŁ8,000 servicing the car at Autofficina ensuring that everything that has needed doing is done, a true no-expense spared mentality. Supplied with extensive service history alongside all of its original books and tools, hood-bag, a fresh MOT and a modest c.38,000 miles recorded on its odometer. In case this were not enough to entice you, on-top of all of this, in preparation for sale the GTS has had an independent inspection carried out by SMDG, along-side a fresh Service by none other than Rardley Motors. A very clean example in nearly all respects, the GTS even benefits from recent detailing and ceramic coating which not only looks stunning but protects the paint and increases ease of cleaning. Recent work over the last two years includes; new alternator, gear linkages, AC service, full service in November 2017 including new spark plugs, HT leads, new engine mounts & drive shaft boots. A new clutch release bearing and clutch repair has also recently been undertaken alongside a cam-belt at Foskers on 17/11/16. Rarely does one ever see such a well-prepared Ferrari on the market so if you are looking for a problem-free car to buy and drive away, then this surely is the one for you!
1953 Jaguar XK120 Drop Head Coupe UK delivered in Right Hand Drive Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 667065
Estimate: £60,000 - £70,000
It was at the 1948 London Motor Show that Jaguar virtually threw the sports car world into turmoil with its stunning XK120. Here was a car with incredible style and looks, a powerful six cylinder engine installed in an outstanding chassis and a remarkably low price – a quarter that of a V12 Ferrari with similar performance. The combination was unbeatable and without doubt the Jaguar XK120 was an absolute milestone for both Jaguar and the motor industry as a whole. At the heart of the William Lyons styled roadster was that all-new 3,442cc, twin overhead camshaft XK engine producing 160bhp via twin SU carburettors – sufficient for 126mph and 0-60mph in 10.0 seconds. To further push the performance point home, in October 1948, with an aeroscreen and aluminium undershield the only modifications, an XK120 recorded 132.6mph for the flying mile in Jabekke, Belgium, making it indisputably the fastest off-the-shelf production car in the orld. The XK120 was also endowed with fine road holding, its steel body – the originally planned limited production run used alloy bodies – clothing a shortened Mk. V chassis employing independent torsion bar/wishbone front suspension and a semi-elliptic leaf-sprung rear axle, while brakes were all round drums. The XK120 became a massive success both on the road and the track where it scored numerous victories. Many drivers raced the XK120 including Stirling Moss, Peter Walker, Peter Whitehead, Leslie Johnson and Ian Appleyard; indeed, in XK120C/C-Type form it won Le Mans in both 1951 and 1953 and its engine was to power three more Sarthe winners and a whole host of future Jaguars. Produced in 1953 this particular XK120 was sold by PJ Evans Jaguar, Birmingham to a Mr Chalon of Bromsgrove. Finished in its original Pastel Green with suede green interior the car carries the original buff log book from 1962. In 1968 the car was taken off the road to begin repairs and sat unused in the back of an MOT centre until 2000. Between 2000 and 2006 the XK underwent an extensive restoration that is comprehensively recorded with receipts and photographs that can be found in the history file. The car has just had a full service and thorough inspection, including an MOT test (from which it is, of course, exempt). The interior and hood were restored by marque specialists CMC and still looks as it did when it left the workshop. As one of few remaining original UK delivered XK120 drop head coupes, this charming example is presented in one of the most desirable colour combinations and very sensibly reserved. This truly is an opportunity not to be missed by any Jaguar enthusiast or discerning collector. 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.

1986 Renault 5 Turbo 2 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: E0001277
Estimate: £65,000 - £75,000
In 1980 Renault introduced the new R5 Turbo as a pure homologation special to compete in Group 4 racing and international rallies. The 5 Turbo was based on the production Renault 5 Alpine, but Renault engineers scrapped the standard frontengine, front wheel drive layout in favour of a mid-engine, rear-drive setup. In 1981 Jean Ragnotti and his co-driver Jean-Marc Andrie won the Monte Carlo Rally outright for Renault, and the following year Ragnotti won the Tour de Corse. In 1984 Group B homologation was sought for the Renault 5 Maxi Turbo to enable it to contest the World Rally Championship. Ragnotti added another Tour de Corse win with the 5 Maxi Turbo in 1985. After the first batch of 400 road cars had been made to satisfy Group 4 homologation volume requirements, a second generation, known as the Turbo 2 was to follow. Declared manufactured 1985 and first registered 01/10/1986, chassis E0001277 was one of the final Renault 5 turbo 2’s off the production line presented in ‘Brun 679′, a pearl gold over brown and the rarest colour specification produced during the Renault 5 Turbos entire production run. Originally sourced by Renault export sales, Paris, during 1985 it entered the UK via established Renault importer ‘Ringles Cross Garage’ in Uckfield, Sussex whereupon it was a showroom centrepiece and unused for a year until October 1986 when sold to its first owner and close friend of Eddy Irvine, who was in custodianship for 6 months before passing on to the second owner and collector Gary McMahon in Ireland. Used regularly over a period of 10 years registration MBZ1074, as it was now known, passed on again to another Irish collector with the foresight to dry store the car. Unused for 14 years before renowned collector, Clive Wiseman, purchased the car in 2007 bringing the car back to the UK. Sold to its current owner in 2014 showing just 64,000 Kms documented, it began its recommissioning programme with the aim of being a useable prospect from this day forward. Now showing a scant 66,000 Kms and turning many heads on the classic show scene and motoring press. Chassis E0001277 has starred at Cholmondley paegant of power, Goodwood’s OrigineRS, Evo magazine and at Salon Prive in July 2018 it came in the top 30 cars at the UK fitted show and in September 2018 was awarded runner up in the Concours judging at the Manchester Classic car show. Invoices supplied show a total of 1,200 hours of labour have been lavished in sympathetically restoring this extraordinary Turbo 2, with receipts totalling approximately £33,000. We do not think it would be possible to find a finer example on the market anywhere today of this joyous French hot hatch. This car will certainly put a smile on anyone’s face and will no doubt prove to be a wise investment for the future.
1958 Fiat 600 Multipla Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 100 108 043860
Estimate: £35,000 - £40,000
Fiat’s pioneering Multipla, forerunner to the many people-movers we see on the roads today, was based on its universally successful 600 model. Designed by the talented Dante Giacosa, the Multipla (Italian for All Service) first appeared at the Brussels Motor Show in 1956 as a replacement the more conventional 500 Topolino Belvedere estate car. With its vertically-mounted air-cooled engine, the 600 presented some unique design challenges for Giacosa, whose solution was to position the driver and front passenger over the front axle, freeing up extra room between the wheelbase, which remained unchanged from the production 600. The forward-control layout, something we take for granted today, was a radical leap in the mid-1950s but typical of Giacosa’s lateral thinking. With a variety of seating arrangements, the Multipla could be a five-seater (with the standard two rows of benches) or a six-seater (with the second and third rows consisting of individual folding chairs) plus various taxi, or ‘Multihire’, layouts. By folding the rear seats flat to the floor, the little Fiat could swallow an enormous amount of luggage and, with decent headroom and good access, the rear compartment could seat four adults in comfort, in a vehicle just 50 cm longer than a Mini! The Multipla used the same running gear as the 600, which initially meant a 633cc version of the ohv in-line four mated to a four-speed transmission (with revised ratios to suit) but uniquely featured coil and wishbone front suspension and different steering. With only 21.5 horsepower on tap, power was found to be wanting when fully loaded and the larger 767cc motor from the 600D from 1960 onwards a welcome improvement. The Multipla remained in production in 1969, proving popular as a taxi and was a sales success, with approximately 243,00 made all told. This wonderful and early example of the more collectable series 1 Multipla, was purchased by the vendor four years ago in Southern Italy. Having undergone a comprehensive restoration by marque specialists in Italy, the car was in such good condition that shortly after paying for the car, the owner drove it all the way back to his home in London. It was not only because of its superb condition that the owner fell in love with and purchased the car, but also because of its rare specification. There are only three known right-hand drive examples that were produced by Fiat, one currently residing in Australia and belonging to the Famous rock band Crowded House, and the other in the USA believed to be in the possession of J. Lennon! Having spent all of its life in Southern Italy and Sicily, this car is far more original and in much better overall condition than most. Included in the car’s history file are the cars Sicily registration plates.
1959 Mercedes-Benz 190SL Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 121040109500537
Estimate: £70,000 - £80,000
During the 50’s, when Mercedes-Benz were the dominant force in top-level motor sport, the undisputed flagship of the firm’s production car range was the stunning 300SL sports car. Highly desirable as it was, it was also financially out of the reach of most enthusiasts. Keen to capitalise on the 300SL’s numerous competition successes, and find a foothold in the increasingly lucrative sports car market, Mercedes-Benz introduced its smaller stablemate, the equally beautifully engineered 190SL. The 190SL was sold alongside the faster, more expensive Mercedes-Benz 300SL, similar not just in terms of styling, engineering and detailing, but also sharing fully independent suspension, double wishbone suspension at the front and swing axles at the rear. The 190SL was powered by a new, slightly over square 1.9 litre straight-four SOHC engine that developed 120bhp with twin-choke dual Solex carburettors, the fourcylinder engine block was based on the six-cylinder engine of the 300 SL. Teamed with a four-speed manual gearbox, this endowed the sleek aerodynamic and comparatively light 190SL that boasted a top speed of 115mph and a respectable 0-60 time of 13.0 seconds. Delivered new to Italy, this lovely original example has enjoyed a sympathetic restoration and recent mechanical overhaul. This charming 190 has resided in warm climates for much of its life, and therefore is extremely well preserved with none of the rust issues that can blight those residing in less kinder environments. Finished in the stylish combination of white with a wine red leather interior, and still retaining many original features such as its period FM Blaupunkt Radio, this is a very sensibly priced example of an all time classic.
1977 Maserati Bora 4.9 Registration Number: German Registered
Chassis Number: AM117149451002
Estimate: £90,000 - £110,000
Maserati needs no introduction. Already a legendary racing marque before the war, the company turned to the limited production of sports cars for the road in the 1950s. These proved to be highly successful, and so manufacture continued throughout the ‘60s with the company taking credit for some of the most desirable cars of the era. The early ‘70s brought the advent of the mid-engined sports car, and so the great front engined Grand Tourers of the period such as the Ferrari Daytona and Maserati Ghibli gave way to this ruthlessly fast new breed. The flagbearers of this new supercar genre were the Ferrari Boxer and the Maserati Bora, road cars capable of over 170mph that, for the first time ever, had cornering capabilities to match their speed. The Bora, styled by Giugiaro at Ital Design, was powered by a 350bhp light alloy V8 lengthways ahead of the rear wheels, and had innovative four-wheel coil spring independent suspension. In ride and handling it was typical of its class – although defining its class simply as ‘superior’ is rather vague, especially since it was about 30 per cent more expensive than its counterparts. Offered here is a lovely matching numbers example of the more desirable 4.9 specification Bora, that has received a vast amount of work over recent years. The extensive work undertaken ranges from retrimming the interior to fully inspecting and servicing the engine. Little details were also taken car of such as modernising the air conditioning unit to use R134a gas, which we are told was very helpful over the summer! Having had all the necessary work undertaken by the vendor, the car is said to run beautifully. Fully serviced and ready for its next custodian.
1962 Jaguar E-Type ‘Flat Floor’ Roadster Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number: 876484
Estimate: £90,000 - £100,000
On its 1961 Geneva Show debut the E-Type caused a sensation, with all the promise of its looks confirmed by independent road test results that not only recorded a 150mph top speed, but also 0-60mph and 0-l00mph in 6.9 and 16.2 seconds respectively; fast indeed, and the match of any exotic thoroughbred then available, combined with superb road-holding and remarkable docility. One of the greatest post-war sports cars, Jaguar’s E-Type made immediate headlines on its launch in March 1961. Here was a sleek and beautiful 150mph car with a competition pedigree that could be bought for just over €2,000 almost half the cost of an Aston Martin or Ferrari. A direct descendant of the XK120 and competition C and D-Type models that so dominated fifties sports car racing, the E-Type shared its 265bhp 3.8 litre twin-cam straight-six engine with the XK150 ‘S’, mated to a Moss four-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top three ratios. Beneath the William Lyons/Malcolm Sayerstyled body, available in either closed or roadster form, the steel monocoque chassis sported all-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, mounted inboard at the back. This wonderful Flat Floor roadster was delivered new to Jaguar Cars of New York in January 1962, finished in its current colour scheme of Carmen Red with a Black leather interior, and destined for the first owner, a G.W Aghlli. By 1975 the E-Type was owned by a Robert T. Pasquale of Cherry Hill in New Jersey, who enjoyed the car for around 40 years before selling via the Beverley Hills Car Club to our vendor. The current owner commissioned a comprehensive ground-up restoration of the E-Type which has only recently been completed, with a handful of miles having been completed since. Offered with a US title document, Jaguar Heritage certificate, a file of invoices for works completed, and with EU taxes paid, this is a great proposition for the Jaguar enthusiast.
2003 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFDT57B000133631
Estimate: £100,000 - £120,000
The first model to be rolled out was the 360 Modena, followed later by the 360 Spider, and finally, as a special edition, the Challenge Stradale, which was the highest performance road-legal version of the 360 produced by the factory, featuring carbon ceramic brakes (from the Enzo), track tuned suspension, aerodynamic gains, weight reduction, power improvements and revised gearbox software among its track focused brief. From a handling and braking performance perspective, it was the equivalent of adding a FHP (Fiorano Handling Pack) to the 360, which was available for V12 models such as the 550, 575 or F599 but never separately for the V8s. Finished in the traditional shade of Rossa Corsa, this 2003 Challenge Stradale is offered with all of its original books and tools, alongside an extensive service history which includes the fitting of a new clutch, exhaust and cambelt service c.2,000km’s ago, a break down for which can be seen below. It is quite clear from its history that the car has been looked after and maintained over the years with no expense spared and as such the car drives just as well as it did the day it left the factory. Showing a respectable 52,000 kilometres (c. 32,000 miles) recorded, this is an excellent example in all respects and having benefitted from a recent service by Maranello, provides a highly rewarding driving experience with strong investment potential over the coming years.
1980 Ferrari 308 GTSi Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: ZFFDT57B000133631
Estimate: £100,000 - £120,000
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 as its predecessor was, 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. Delivered new to none other than Edward J DeBartolo, who at the time was the owner of one of USA’s top American Football teams; the San Francisco 49ers.
in August 2018.
This wonderful Rosso Corsa 308 was delivered new to none other than Edward J DeBartolo, who at the time was the owner of one of USA’s top American Football teams; the San Francisco 49ers. With its first entry at 609 miles, the car has always been fastidiously maintained at Ferrari main dealers and specialists such as Terry Hoyle Ferrari with no expense spared, and included in the car’s extensive history-file are a swathe of invoices totalling in excess of £60,000, with the last service completed
So discerning is the vendor that during his 16-year ownership, a full photographic record of all work carried out on the car has been made. On top of the comprehensive main-dealer and marque-specialist servicing history, all old MOT certificates have been retained, verifying its modest 60,000 miles recorded from new. Also offered with the car are most of its old tax discs, original tool-kit in its original leather bag and in excellent condition, original leather hood cover for the targa-top and last but not least its leather-weave owner’s manual pouch with all manuals intact. More recently this exceptional 308 has received a lot more attention and to name some of the work; its engine has just had a complete service, new timing belts, new timing belt bearings, new timing belt tensioners, new rocker cover gaskets, new clutch kit, new plugs, new plug extenders and all fluids renewed. New coolant expansion bottle and 5 new tires have also been fitted.
1996 Lamborghini Diablo SE30 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: TBA
Estimate: £180,000 - £220,000
Not only is the SE30 one of the rarer Lamborghini’s one can buy, with a limited production run of only 150 examples, but it was built in celebration of Lamborghini’s 30th Anniversary with the aim to show the world what it was capable of, resulting in something far superior to the ‘standard’ Diablo. This right-hand drive example is in immaculate condition and is offered with a full-service history from new.
1964 Mercedes-Benz 230SL Pagoda Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 11304220004833
Estimate: £55,000 - £65,000
Introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 1963 as replacement for the 190SL, the 230SL abandoned its predecessor’s four-cylinder engine in favour of a 2.3 liter fuelinjected six cylinder engine derived from that of the 220SE and producing 150bhp. An instant classic, the body design was all-new while beneath the skin the running gear was conventional Mercedes-Benz, featuring all-round independent suspension (by swing axles at the rear), disc front/drum rear brakes and a choice of four-speed manual or automatic transmissions. With a top speed in excess of 120mph, the 230SL debuted competition victory and ended up winning the Spa-Sofia-Liège Rally in the hands of Eugen Bohringer. Finished in Ivory over tanned leather interior, this wonderful and rare right-hand drive example was purchased by its current family 12 years ago. Over the years the car has received a lot of attention and most work on the car has been undertaken by Tom Heaney at Mercedes Restorations in Ulster. The 230SL’s are considered the purest form of the W113 ‘Pagoda’ and to find a lovely family owned example, not only as a right-hand drive but also fitted with a manual gearbox, is a feat in itself. We are advised that the car is used regularly by its current custodians and ready to be enjoyed by the next.
1926 Bayliss-Thomas Speedster Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 7273
Estimate: £12,000 - £15,000
When Messrs Bayliss and Thomas, well established motorcycle manufacturers in Birmingham under the name Excelsior, entered the car industry in the early postWorld War One period, they were obliged to come up with a new brand, as there was already Belgian company selling cars in Britain under the Excelsior name. The prototype Bayliss-Thomas was trialled in 1919, these early cars being three-wheelers but more conventional four-wheel light cars followed, ranging from 9hp to 13hp models and around 1,000 were made in total, of which comparatively few survive today. The Bayliss-Thomas was sold either with an OHV Meadows 1100cc engine or 1500cc side-valve Coventry-Simplex unit (mated to a Wrigley gearbox, with no differential). By 1924, the range had expanded to four models, with a choice of tourer or pointed-tail sports bodies with lowered steering column and seats, but very few Bayliss-Thomas were being made by the late 1920s. Although production of BaylissThomas automobiles ceased in 1929, Excelsior continued making motorcycles until the early 1960s. This 1926 example has resided in Australia for many years, having been owned by an Eric Buckley who stored the car for around 30 years from 1958 to 1989, whereupon ownership passed to Laurie Schneider, a prominent Australian member of the VSCC. Laurie Schneider was regularly seen driving the ‘BT’ until he gave up driving in 2011. The car was purchased by our current vendor in 2016 and imported into the UK, where it has joined a small classic car collection. During his ownership our vendor has registered the car on a V5 document, treated it with some attention to the brakes and fuel system, and has obtained a UK MoT certificate. Believed by Beaulieu Museum to be the only one of its kind left, this is a delightful period sportscar which has benefited from much restoration work and is ready to be enjoyed by the next vintage sports car enthusiast.
1989 BMW 635Csi Highline Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: WBAEC820808188726
Estimate: £18,000 - £22,000
The E24 6 series was produced from 1976-1989 and was the replacement for the CS and CSL E9 coupes. Like the E9 coupes, the early bodies of the 6 were manufactured by Karmann until production was moved in-house by BMW. It was the proven E12 5 series that provided the chassis and much of the mechanicals for the E24. Dubbed the ‘Bavarian Ferrari’ the 6 series was a high end two door luxury sports coupe. The 628 model was produced until 1987 and was a budget model for the European market. The 633 Csi featured the first generation of DME and ABS brakes were available as an option. The following year, the 635 CSi received the same DME as the 633 Csi. E24s produced after June 1987 were fitted with ellipsoid headlamps, as per the recently introduced E32 7 Series. The front and rear bumpers and spoilers were redesigned to use a single design worldwide, and the engine was updated to the higher compression M30B35 type. This wonderful late Highline model was in the ownership of just one keeper for nearly 20 years, during which it was maintained only by Central London-based main agents. The 635 was used only in the summer, and when not in use stored carefully in an underground garage and valeted regularly. As a result the 635 is in beautiful rust-free condition, unlike many others on the market. Showing just 53,000 miles from new, three owners and with full service history, this is a truly collectors grade example of BMWs flagship GT car.
1989 Jaguar XJS V12 Coupe Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SAJJNAEW3BB161636
Estimate: £7,000 - £9,000
Conceived as a comfortable and long-legged Grand Routière, rather than an out-and-out sports car like the preceding E-Type, the XJ-S debuted at the 1976 Frankfurt Motor Show as a V12-powered coupé, with six-cylinder and soft-top versions following in the 1980’s, the USA’s expected ban on open cars having failed to materialise. One of the most important developments in the evolution of the V12-powered XJS was the introduction of the HE (High Efficiency) engine in 1981. Incorporating a new design of cylinder head, this more fuel-efficient unit enabled the top-of-the-range XJS to meet tighter worldwide emissions legislation. The wonderful XJS presented here has been with the current vendor from new and originally registered to his company in 1989. The car was used regularly until a new purchase led to it being put into temperature controlled storage in 1997 where it has remained for the intervening years relatively unused. Showing a current mileage of approximately 40,000 and offered with the original manuals and service history, this car is in a wonderfully original condition. Single ownership Jaguar XJS’ with this mileage are very rare to come by and would be a welcome addition to any collection or a fine first entry into classic car ownership.
1932 Alvis TJ 12/50 Ducks Back Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 9705
Estimate: £25,000 - £30,000
The 12/50 was withdrawn between 1929 and 1930 when the company decided that the future lay with the front-wheel drive FD and FE models, but when these did not reach the hoped for volumes a final version of the 12/50 was announced for the 1931 model year as TJ. Fitted with the 1645 cc engine this continued in production until 1932. The ‘post-vintage’ TJ is referred to by Alvis historians as being from the ‘revival period’, and it differs from its predecessor in a number of ways, notably coil instead of magneto ignition, deep chromed radiator shell, and rear petrol tank in place of the scuttle-mounted tank on most older 12/50s. This elegantly bodied Ducks Back Alvis has had just 5 owners from new and comes with a history file containing previous invoices and old MOT’s. Said to drive superbly this is a charming vintage sports car which would not be out of place at any motoring event.
1938 Buick Special Series 40 Albemarle Drophead Coupé by Carlton Carriage Company Ltd. Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: 844160001
Estimate: £20,000 - £30,000
Inventor David Dunbar Buick built his first automobile in Detroit, Michigan in 1903. More designer than businessman, Buick’s lack of talent in the latter role led to his business changing hands many times before its founder was eventually eased out in 1908, his departure from the Buick Motor Company coinciding with its establishment as the cornerstone of new owner William C Durant’s General Motors. Under Durant’s stewardship production rose dramatically from 750 cars in 1905 to 8,802 in 1908 when Buick’s most popular product was the four-cylinder Model 10, a direct competitor for Ford’s Model T. The company introduced its first six-cylinder car in 1914 and for a period in the 1920s the range would consist entirely of sixes. Then, at the end of 1930, Buick dramatically axed its six-cylinder models, adopting an all eight-cylinder range for 1931. By the decade’s end Buick had become one of America’s most popular cars. Stylistically and mechanically, the Buick range was comprehensively revised for 1936, featuring ‘turret top’ styling and improved independent front suspension, and these revitalised straight-eights would carry Buick through to WW2 and beyond. Dating from 1938, when all Buicks adopted coil sprung rear suspension, this righthand drive Special Series 40 was produced in Buick’s factory at Oshawa, Canada and imported into the UK by Lendrum & Hartman Ltd, of London. The car carries fiveseat ‘Albemarle’ drophead coupé coachwork by Carlton Carriage Company Ltd, of Willesden, London NW10, who are ‘best known for their drophead coupes which are archetypal designs of the British Jazz Era’. The vehicle is being sold from long term single family ownership, having been stored for the best part of 20 years as part of a small collection, and offers the new owner the opportunity to enter into the stylish period of American style.
1982 Jaguar XJ-S 5.3 Registration Number: UK Registered
Chassis Number: SAJ-JNAEW3BC107680
Estimate: £ £8,000 - £12,000
The XJ-S had been under development since 1968 and as a 2+2 fixed head coupe was intended as a replacement for the now legendary E-type. From the beginning it was only available with the V12 engine which gave excellent performance with 0-60mph being dispatched in a very respectable 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 150mph. Later in the XJ-S’s life it was also available with a six-cylinder engine and a manual gearbox. This sought-after early example of the XJ-S, no to be confused with the later cars, is fitted with the preferred V12 engine. Described to be in excellent condition in almost all respects, this is a particularly special example due to its very original unmolested condition. Offered with a vast and comprehensive history file, recent work includes the fitment of a new AC system and fuel tank. Being sold by a true Jaguar Drivers Club owner, this desirable specification and low-mileage example, finished in the very eye-catching colour combination of Rhodium silver over County Tan leather interior, has traveled a very modest and fully documented 49,000 miles from new. Offered with a full 12 Month MOT.
