Rover’s all new P6 range of executive sports saloons were produced between 1963 and 1977, with the 3500S manual version being the most sought after by enthusiasts and collectors. This example has had only four owners from new, with the current vendor purchasing her in 1992 with a recorded mileage of 69,355 miles. He then embarked on a full body restoration with new genuine old stock Rover panels and resprayed the car in the correct Rover white. The Rover was then used until 1997 adding less than 400 miles to the odometer. The Rover then went into storage until 2012. It was subsequently recommissioned with

110 A left hand drive 1968 Fiat 500, registration number YMO 213F, blue. The cute little Fiat is the ultimate town car, akin to a fiery terrier nipping in and out of traffic, finding the smallest of gaps to enable speedy progress on today’s crowded streets. Indeed this was exactly what Dante Giacosa had in mind when he designed the diminutive Fiat, ready to take on the mean streets of Turin in July 1957. Purchased by the vendor in 2009, as a restoration project, the Fiat has been subject to a comprehensive body restoration with new panels including the front valance, boot and floor, and a full respray. Further works completed include stripping and checking of the engine and gearbox, new lights, battery and fan. Now resplendent in light blue with a full length Webasto style sunroof.

114 A 1971 Austin Mini 1000 Mk II, registration number DRX 755K, red. This Mk II Mini has had a full body restoration and respray, which was carried out in 2008. The car has subsequently not been used since and has just emerged from storage. She has been recommissioned and MOTd ready for the auction.

This father and son owned from new Mk V Minx was purchased from Cathedral Garage Bristol by Mr RB Sharp and was registered to him in 1964. It would remain Mr Sharp Senior’s daily transport until Mr R Sharp took over the running of the car until 1992, when the Minx was taken off the road and garage stored. The vendor informs us that the recorded mileage of 126,000 is believed to be genuine and a Gold Seal replacement engine was installed at approximately 75,000 miles. During its hibernation of 21 years, the engine has been turned over frequently and the car has been moved back and forth to keep the brakes from binding. Works noted by the vendor, which will require further investigation and attention, are the clutch which is currently seized and the slave cylinder which is leaking. This worthwhile restoration project is now ripe for recommissioning and once this is completed the Minx should make a great starter classic saloon. V5C, no current MOT, tax exempt See illustration £700 - 900

Since acquisition in 2007 the tourer has been extensively restored, with a
Lot 123 123 A 1937 Morris 8 two door coupé, registration number ARX 242, red over black. This well restored Morris 8 has formed part of the John Ellis collection. The body has been re-sprayed and the interior has been re-trimmed with new seat covers, door cards, carpets and head lining. As with all of Mr Ellis’s cars, the act of restoring the car was of more importance to him than actually driving it, and as such the Morris has covered very few miles since completion of the restoration. To this end the car will now require a general check over and service before taking to the road. V5C, MOT and tax exempt See illustrations £5000 - 6000
refurbished and re-sprayed body, new weather gear and a beautifully re-trimmed green leather interior. Mr Ellis found pleasure in restoring cars rather than driving them, and as such the car has covered a limited mileage since completion of the restoration.

Lot 124 124 A 1936 Morris 8 Series I four door saloon, registration number DPF 165, black over red. This Series I four door saloon comes from the John Ellis collection and is in restored condition. The car features a retrimmed red leather interior, a full length sunroof, luggage rack and wire wheels. As with John’s other cars, she has seen very little use since the restoration was completed.

Lot 125 125 A 1946 Morris 8 Series E, registration number YFF 243, black.

The fourth Morris from the John Ellis collection, was purchased by him to restore. Unfortunately due to advancing years John was never able to start this project, and it would appear to be in the same condition as purchased in 2007. The car appears solid and would be ripe for a sympathetic oily rag restoration. V5C, MOT and tax exempt See illustrations £2000 - 2500

145 A 1968 Ford Mustang 289 fastback coupé, currently unregistered, Candy Apple metallic red. The Ford Mustang fastback found cult status after starring in the classic film Bullitt, starring Steve McQueen as Lt Frank Bullitt, and has been a bedroom wall pinup ever since. This matching numbers car, was built at Metuchen where it rolled off the production line on 5th April 1968, to be dispatched to the supplying dealer Bay Star Motor Company, 1159/67 Hutson Boulevard, Bayonne, New Jersey. Its supplied standard specification included a 289V2 V8 engine, cruise-o-matic transmission, power steering, AM radio, louvred hood (bonnet), black standard bucket seats, 2:79 standard axle, wheel covers and lime green paint. Unfortunately very little is known of the early history of the Mustang, until the current owner picks up the story. He purchased the Ford in 2010 in America and had the car imported into England, where a full bare metal restoration has been carried out to a show standard. There is a comprehensive photographic record of the restoration being undertaken, with the body being stripped and taken down to bare metal, all corroded metal being removed and new repair sections and 18

146 A 1973 Triumph Stag, registration number KCR 272L, Inca yellow. This desirable manual overdrive Stag belongs to Phil Kinsella of Kinsella’s Classic Cars. Phil is a well known Triumph specialist and until recently, a Triumph Sports six Club area coordinator. Phil acquired the Stag in 2008, and embarked on a comprehensive restoration. The bodywork was completely stripped and new metal incorporated into the body shell as needed. This included new full outer sills, boot floor, wheel arch repairs front and rear, new boot lid, floor pans and other panels. There is a comprehensive photographic record of the work being carried out with approx. 100 photographs of the work at various stages. The body shell was then bare metal resprayed in Inca yellow (originally red). All of the bright work was either renewed or rechromed as necessary including stainless steel front and rear bumpers. The interior has been retrimmed with new seat foams, black vinyl seat covers, the dashboard and centre console have been reveneered in walnut effect, new carpets, rear seat seatbelts were fitted and a new mohair hood finished the retrimming. The engine and running gear have similarly had extensive restoration with an all new and reconditioned braking system, stainless steel exhaust, new suspension parts, re-bushing, copper brake pipes, overhauled steering rack, the
engine bay has been detailed and the engine received new timing chains, the radiator has been recored, and all new hoses were fitted. During the restoration proven modifications have been added to aid modern motoring conditions, including an electric Kenlow fan, a stainless steel header tank, electronic ignition, halogen headlamps and spin on oil filter kit. Since the completion of the restoration the Stag has featured in classic car shows in the South West, including being a featured car on the TSSC stand at the Royal Bath and West Restoration Car Show in 2009/2010 where the stand won best in show. The extensive history file contains the original passport to service (supplying dealer W Croxford Card, Kidderminster), past MOTs, restoration receipts, the aforementioned photographs of the body restoration and a V5. This beautifully restored Stag is only for sale due to Phil’s work commitments and a recent lack of use, he only used the car on a couple of occasions last year. With well over 400 hours of labour being lavished on this Stag, plus parts, you would not be able to replicate a Stag to this condition for a figure approaching £30,000, so at the guide price it offers excellent value for money.

This very original timewarp condition Mini has only had two owners in its 53 years. The first Mr William Stanley Mabe purchased the car from Craybrooke Garage Ltd, Kent in January 1961. He would retain the car until 1981 when the current owner aquired it. The low mileage can be explained by the fact that Mr Mabe only used the Mini until 1975. There are MOTs on file from December 1965 until October 1975. The Mini would then remain in storage until 1981 when the current owner purchased it, he would then retain the car in storage until earlier this year when the car was removed, recommissioned and MOTd for the first time in 38 years. What really makes this car stand
out from the crowd, is the enormous amount of period extras which were ordered and installed by Craybrooke Garage. These are all documented on the original receipt and cost an extra £157.17s.6d on top of the puchase price of £758.10s.2d. The history file contains the MOT certificates from 1965 to 1975, the original bill of sale, the original warranty card, the receipt for the recommissioning work, the original sales brochure, a workshop manual, heritage certificate and RF60 log book. This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase an original and what must be a unique early Mini, with all of the period charm any collector could ask for.

155 A 1961 Morris Mini Minor pickup, registration number 419 NYC, chassis number M-AU4/196721, engine number 8AM-U-L/270629, Whitehall beige, one owner, and less than 27,000 miles from new. From the first year of production, this rare Mini pickup must surely be one of the earliest known low mileage examples to have survived. 419 NCY was built on 27 December 1961 and was dispatched to the supplying dealer, Sticklands Garages, Gillingham, Dorset, on 6th January 1962, where it would be registered to its only registered keeper, Mrs Minnie Gould on 18th January 1962. The pickup would subsequently be used by Mrs Gould until 1970, when the Mini was put into a hay barn, where it would remain until 1999. At this time, the Mini was removed from storage, and the car was re-commissioned with a full respray and the original engine had the cylinder head reconditioned with hardened seat valves for unleaded petrol. The pickup retains all of the unique features of an early production model, including the one piece rear 22
bumper, the original rear tilt and hoops, and the floor mounted starter switch. It is also interesting to note, that the Mini was fitted with optional extras, which would all be taken for granted today. These special features include a heater, windscreen washer, front bumper overriders, low compression engine and passenger seat. The Mini comes to auction with a history file containing a continuation RF60 log book, a BMC seat covers brochure, the Morris maintenance service voucher book, a Mini-Minor driver’s handbook, the BMC driver’s club booklet and application card, RAC pamphlet, a Morris Mini van and pickup schedule of repair charges book, a heritage certificate, and a copy of Classic Van & Pickup magazine, January 2012 issue, where the pickup is featured on page 32.

156 A 1962 Triumph Herald 1200, registration number FSL 335, grey over white. This practical starter classic has recently been recommissioned and MOTd after a few years of inactivity. To acquire its new MOT the Herald required the following repairs, new trunnions, new offside drive shaft universal joint, extensive welding to the boot floor, new fuel pump and fuel lines, new ignition components, a stainless steel silencer box and numerous other small components. Due to a change in circumstances, the vendor is reluctantly selling the Herald and feels that it would benefit from further improvements, including the fitting of a new rear valance, respray and interior refurbishment. This Herald would be a great introduction to classic car motoring and the further improvements could be made when time and funds allow.

Recent work has included a full service, new tyres on refurbished Boyd alloys, new exhaust system, headlight motor rebuild, new centre console, door rubbers and some minor paintwork.

162 A 1969 Morris Mini Cooper S Mk II 1275, registration number VAE 357H, chassis number KA2S6S1300972, engine number 9FXeY53795, white with black roof. BMC's Mk II Cooper S was available in both Austin and Morris guises, with 790 Austin and 689 Morris versions being produced for the home market between September 1967 and January 1970, with a further 1897 being produced for the export market. There are currently only 426 Mini Cooper S Mk IIs registered with the Mini Cooper Register, making the Mk II S a relatively rare version of BMC hot Mini. This four owner Cooper S has been garaged since 1988 (last current tax disc displayed) and now requires re-commissioning or restoring, depending on the new owner's requirements. Finished in white, with a black roof and black vinyl interior, which only has the driver's seat and back seat fitted. The passenger seat and carpets are no longer present. The 24
body shell has had new front wings and outer sills fitted at some point, but the rest of the body shell is original with correct spot welds and brackets fitted as per factory specification, as verified by the Mini Cooper Register area representative for Cornwall. The vendor informs us that the engine turns over and the Mini rolls freely on its period alloy wheels. The brake servo is missing, but again the correct bracket is in place to install a new one. Little history accompanies the car, except for a V5 and an old MOT from 1988, when the mileage is recorded at 96,896 miles, the current odometer reading is now 96,908 miles. This rare and desirable Cooper S is now ripe for oil rag recommissioning or a full restoration, and with Mini Cooper values steadily rising, this low ownership example offers an excellent opportunity to secure a genuine Cooper S. V5, no current MOT, tax exempt See illustrations ÂŁ14000 - 16000
163 A 1967 Jaguar E-Type Series 1½ 2+2 coupé, registration number RLO 10E, chassis number 1E 50580BW, dark Jaguar blue. RLO 10E was registered to its first keeper, A Wander Ltd of 42 Upper Grosvenor Street London W1 on 2nd May 1967. She would subsequently change hands a further three times, before the current vendor acquired her in 1993. An automatic example of the iconic E-Type, RLO 10E, has been extensively restored to a very high standard, by the current vendor. Works carried out include a full bodywork restoration with new metal incorporated into the body shell as necessary, this is recorded with numerous photographs of the work in progress. A full respray was then executed in dark Jaguar blue by West Coker Body Repairs in 1998 for £2,711 (receipt on file), all of the brightwork was either rechromed or replaced as necessary, the engine was replaced due to a cracked block supplied by W Swallow Engineering (receipt on file), the interior was
retrimmed in dove grey leather, the Webasto sunroof was renovated, and new chrome wire wheels and tyres were purchased, all of the running gear brakes and suspension were reconditioned with new parts as necessary (receipts on file from Castle Vehicle Heritage Limited), plus numerous other items associated with a thorough complete restoration. Since the restoration was completed in 2008/2009, the Jaguar has only covered a very limited mileage of approximately 300 miles. Offered for auction with an extensive history file with receipts for many thousands of pounds, a photograph album of the body restoration and respray, past MOTs and RF60. This extensively restored and beautifully presented E-Type is now ready and waiting for the lucky new owner to enjoy her as Jaguar intended. V5C, MOT to March 2014, tax exempt See illustrations £25000 - 28000
Lot 164 164 A 1973 Jaguar XJ6 Series II, registration number NDD 55M, sable, less than 60,000 miles from new. This very early XJ6 Series II belonged to a brother and sister until 2008 and has covered a cosseted 59,500 miles from new, with a full service history to substantiate the mileage. The Jaguar was registered to the sister in October 1973. The original bill of sale from Mann, Egerton & Co of Cheltenham, confirms that the car was supplied with electric windows, a Radiomobile 1095T radio and wing mounted aerial. With delivery and number plates, she cost a not inconsiderable £3,908.31. Mann, Egerton & Co maintained the car until July 1978, documented with six stamps in the Passport to Service (13,406), for the next 13 years, the Jaguar was serviced by local specialist garages and a further five stamps were added to the passport. In 1991 the ownership of the car passed to the brother, who resided in Ross-on-Wye. For the next 17
Lot 165 165 A 1974 MG B GT, registration number TYC 310M, red. This desirable tax exempt manual overdrive GT has been in the current ownership since 1995. She has been extensively restored by the vendor, with new body panels, full re-spray, a new engine, refurbished interior, and numerous other items associated with a thorough restoration. The decision was taken by the vendor to change the original white paint work to red when the body work was restored. The MG is offered for auction with an extensive history file, with past MOTs, tax discs, restoration and maintenance receipts, parts lists, general correspondence and V5. V5C, MOT to July 2014, tax exempt See illustrations £4000 - 4500
years he used Gardner Butcher garages to undertake the care of the Jaguar, adding a further five stamps to the passport and no less than a further 29 visits for service and maintenance work, including new sills in 2005. The car was sold to the third registered keeper in March 2008, he would only use the Jaguar for four months, before putting the car into storage where it would remain until recently emerging from hibernation and being recommissioned and serviced prior to obtaining a new MOT. Offered for auction with a comprehensive service history from the original bill of sale to the present day, including Passport to Service, original sales brochure, owner’s handbook, a sales and service booklet and a contemporary road test report. A timewarp example of Sir William Lyon’s finest. This XJ6 would be a great addition to any collection. V5C, MOT to April 2014, no current tax See illustrations £4000 - 4500

Conditions of Sale 1)
All lots will be offered for sale subject to these conditions of sale for veteran, vintage and classic vehicles, motorcycles and automobilia.
Charterhouse act as agents for the vendor of each lot and shall not be party to or liable in any manner whatsoever on any contract of sale between the seller and the buyer.
The Buyer a) The highest bidder acknowledged as such by the auctioneer will be the buyer. If any dispute arises, the auctioneer shall have absolute discretion to settle the matter. The auctioneer shall rule the bidding and no bid shall be retracted. The auctioneer reserves the right to refuse any bid. The bidder at the sale who is successful in purchasing any lot or lots is entirely responsible for paying for such lot or lots in accordance with our terms of business. Purchases made on behalf of a third party are entirely the responsibility of the bidder at the sale. The auctioneer reserves the right to bid on behalf of the vendors for any lot and to withdraw, consolidate or divide any lot or lots. b) The buyer of any lot shall be solely responsible for conforming with the requirements of the Road Traffic Acts, the Construction and Use of Motor Vehicle Regulations and all relevant orders, rules and legislation made in connection therewith. c) The buyer of any lot shall be solely responsible for the obtaining of any export license that may be required in connection with any lot purchased. (see below) Export Licences i) Buyers are reminded that an export license is required for any vehicle purchased for more than £15,999 and manufactured or produced 50 years prior to the date of export. Certain other items including, inter alia, all manuscripts and documents 50 or more years old and photographic material 60 or more years old and valued at £400 or more require export licences. ii) It should be noted that export licences usually take a minimum of four weeks to obtain and buyers are reminded that their purchases must be stored away from the auction site, at their cost, pending export. iii) Buyers are reminded that it is a serious offence to breach or attempt the regulations concerning export licences.
Buyers are reminded that their purchases are held at their risk from the fall of the hammer and Charterhouse will not accept any liability for loss of or damage to any lot.
Registration. To assist the progress of the sale, all prospective buyers must register their name and address at reception and collect a numbered bidding card before the sale commences. This card may be used to indicate your bids to the auctioneer during the sale. Two forms of identification need to be supplied to register, at least one with name, address, signature and preferably photograph, for example a new style driving licence. For prospective buyers who will not be at the sale, either because they are leaving absentee bids or are having a telephone bid, and who are interested in a vehicle or motorbike, a £1,000 deposit will need to be paid. This will be refunded if the bid is not successful. If the bid is successful, this sum will be used towards the final bill.
Buyer’s Premium. A buyer’s premium of 15% plus VAT is payable on the final bid price of each automobilia lot. A buyer’s premium of 10% plus VAT is payable on the final bid price of each vehicle lot, with a minimum buyer’s premium of £80 plus VAT being payable on motor cars and motorcycles.
Value Added Tax. Lots on which Value Added Tax may be payable by the buyer on the "hammer price" are indicated in the catalogue by a symbol beside the lot number. The buyer shall pay any VAT which may be due on any amounts owed by the buyer under these Terms of Business at the rates prevailing on the day of the auction.
Auctioneers Margin Scheme. The Auctioneers Margin Scheme allows auctioneers to sell items without VAT on the hammer price. Under the margin scheme an amount equivalent to VAT at the current rate is added to the buyer’s premium. This amount cannot be refunded. The VAT element will not be shown separately on the buyer’s invoice.
Payment. The purchase price must be paid by the buyer to Charterhouse no later than 12 noon on the Tuesday following the sale. Our methods of payment are with cash or card. Visa and Mastercard are accepted, and incur a 2% surcharge. Cash for amounts over £9,000 will not be accepted. All purchases must be paid in full before any lot is removed from the premises, no goods will be released to buyers unknown to the auctioneers without adequate reference. Any buyers unknown to the auctioneer must establish a bank reference with the Accounts department prior to the sale. Anyone who, for whatever reason, is unable to pay for their goods on the day of the sale, must inform the Accounts department as to the date and method that payment will be made. Accounts not paid within fourteen days will automatically be subject to an interest charge of 5% above base rate from the day of sale. a)
Our bank details are as follows: Bank: Nat West Bank Address: 50 Cheap Street, Sherborne, Dorset, DT9 3BH Sort Code: 60-19-12 Account No: 97883700 Account Name: Charterhouse
Description a) All lots are sold and purchased ‘as seen’. A vehicle sold ‘as seen’ is sold and purchased for what it is and with all its faults (if any) and without any condition, warranty or other term (whether expressed or implied and whether implied by statute, common law, custom or otherwise) as to the age, description, mileage, suitability, fitness for purpose, merchantable quality or roadworthiness of the vehicle. b) Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the description of each lot, but these, whether made orally or in the catalogue, are expressions of opinion and not representations of fact. Illustrations whether in the catalogue, on the web site, or sent by email are solely for guidance and must not be relied upon in any manner whatsoever. Most lots are of an age and nature which precludes their being in pristine condition. The condition of any lot and the nature of any damage and/or restoration should be confirmed by the buyer by examination prior to the sale. All prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves as to the condition, colour, age and all other matters relating to any lot and no claims will be accepted in respect of any such matter. c) Each buyer by making a bid for a lot acknowledges that he has satisfied him or herself fully as to the condition of the lot. If any damage is done to any lot at the viewing or before, during or after the sale, such damage shall be made good by the person committing such damage, principals being responsible for the acts of their servants, such damage to be assessed by the auctioneers. d) Whilst every endeavour has been made to ensure that the items lotted in this catalogue will be available and offered for sale in catalogue order, no responsibility can be accepted by the auctioneers for variations and omissions due to circumstances beyond their control. Neither Charterhouse nor the sellers of any lot will accept responsibility for any misrepresentations, misdescriptions or omissions obtained in this catalogue.
Contract of Sale a) On the fall of the hammer, a contract of sale is completed between the seller and the buyer. Charterhouse is not a party to the contract of sale and shall not be liable for any breach thereof by the buyer or the seller. b) If successful in buying a lot, please ensure that your number can be seen by the auctioneer and that it is your number that is called out. Should there be any doubts as to price or buyer, please drawer the auctioneer’s attention to it immediately. Please contact the accounts desk with details of how you will pay. c) The ownership of the lot(s) purchased will not pass to the buyer until the buyer has paid the auctioneers in full the total amount due and the auctioneers have applied such payment to the lot.
Transfer of Risk. Each lot shall be the purchaser’s sole risk from the fall of the hammer and shall be sold with all faults and imperfections, the auctioneer not being responsible for the correct description, genuineness or authenticity of any lot and making no warranty whatsoever. The purchaser is deemed to have inspected the lots and satisfied himself as to their condition.
Commission Bids. If instructed, the auctioneers will execute bids and advise prospective purchasers. This service is free. Lots will always be purchased as cheaply as is allowed by such other bids and reserves as are on the auctioneer’s books. In the event of identical bids, the earliest will take precedence. There must always be a maximum limit indicated, ie the amount to which you would bid if you were attending the auction yourself. "Buy" or unlimited bids will not be accepted. Commission bids placed by telephone are accepted at the client’s risk. We do accept commission bids by facsimile and email, providing they are accompanied by full name and address details. We urge our clients to place such commission bids within one hour of the close of the view day.
Telephone Bids. Requests for telephone bidding must be registered with the Accounts department within one hour of the close of the view day. It may not be possible to accept requests on sale days. Written confirmation of such bids from persons unknown to the auctioneers must be received before the commencement of the sale. Whilst every effort will be made to execute telephone bidding, the auctioneers cannot be held responsible for any default or neglect in connection with this service. All such arrangements therefore are made entirely at the prospective buyer’s risk.
Collection of Goods. All vehicles must be collected by 2.30 pm on the day following the sale. Vehicles not collected by this time will be removed to a compound at Evercreech at a cost of £70.00 + VAT per vehicle. Storage charges will then be levied at £10.00 per vehicle per day or part thereof. Motorcycles not collected by 2.30 pm on the day following the sale will be removed to our head office in Sherborne at a cost of £40.00 + VAT per motorcycle. Automobilia will also be removed to our head office for collection at no charge. Lots will only be released to the buyer or their authorised representative upon presentation of release notes issued by Charterhouse and settlement of any removal, handling and storage charges due. Purchasers are reminded that each lot shall be the purchasers sole risk from the fall of the hammer. Buyers should be aware that no lots will remain at the auction site after 2.30 pm on the day following the sale.
Third Party Liability. Every person on the auctioneers’ premises before, during or after a sale, shall be deemed to be there at their own risk and shall have no claim against the auctioneer or owner of the auction premises in respect of any injury they may sustain or any accident which may occur.
