We cannot and do not inspect each lot in detail to verify the Seller s description - often we only see it shortly before the Sale. Therefore we cannot and do not take responsibility for the condition of the lot or the accuracy of its description. This is the reason for our very specific terms as to roadworthiness (Condition 19.1) and absence of warranties (Condition 12.1) which intending purchasers should read carefully. Commission Telephone Bids We will make reasonable efforts to execute commission and telephone bids when instructed provided they are received by 5pm the day before the Sale. Lot(s) will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and reserves. Where more than one commission bid is submitted at the same winning amount the commission bid submitted to the Auctioneer first will be the winning bid. We reserve the right to request a refundable deposit of approximately 10% of the intended bid amount.

Payment by credit card is acceptable but is subject to a surcharge of 2.5% plus VAT on the Total Amount Due. In any event purchasers are reminded that clearance of Lot(s) may only be effected once we have received cleared funds in our account. For Purchaser s wishing to pay by bank transfer our bank account details are as follows Account Name IBAN Number Swift Code Account Number Branch Sort Code Bank H&H Classics Limited GB98NWBK01091771060480 NWBKGB2L 71060480 01-09-17 Nat West Warrington Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates When mention is made of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain Dating Plates and Certificates in this catalogue it should be borne in mind that the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain does from time to time review cars already dated and in some instances where fresh evidence becomes available alter the date. Whilst the Club makes every effort to ensure accuracy the date shown on the Dating Plate or Dating Certificate cannot be guaranteed as correct and intending purchasers should make their own enquiries as to the date of the car. Export Licence Dates Export licences may be required for any lot manufactured or produced 50 years or more prior to the date of export from the U.K. It is the responsibility of the buyer to obtain the licence and correct documentation prior to the exportation of the lot. Removal of Lots A representative of our preferred transport providers E.M. Rogers and Chas Mortimer will be present at the sale to assist with any transport requirements. All lots are held at the purchaser s risk at the fall of the hammer and must be removed not later than 1pm on the day following the sale. Please note if lot(s) are not removed by then the standard charges as stated in our Terms and Conditions will apply. Vehicle Identity and Competition History 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. The Auctioneer has to rely on information as to the date condition and authenticity provided by the Seller and does not provide its own description and does not and cannot undertake its own inspection of vehicles or other Lot and it is the responsibility of the Buyer to ensure that the Lot conforms to the description in the catalogue. The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN number under which a vehicle is offered but relies on the Seller s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing rallying or ex-works history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times both in a vehicle s works career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes works vehicles were fitted with different registration plates so that a vehicle could meet a particular event s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity. Racing Cars & Documentation Buyers are reminded that the presence of an old HVIF (FIA papers) or other documentation does not constitute a promise on behalf of the MSA or other issuing authority that they will be re-issued on demand. A car s application for a Historic Technical Passport will be subject to the prevailing regulation in Appendix K and can be reviewed much the same way Veteran Cars can be re-dated as new information comes to light. The Issuing Authority can refuse to issue new papers. Any prospective purchaser should check the position of the Lot prior to bidding. 7 REGISTRATIONS R1 REGISTRATION TOO 6 Cherished number plate TOO 6 which is currently in the process of being placed on retention.

The number plate it wears - APH 322 - is still recorded on the DVLA and HPi databases but is associated with the chassis number D363 . Whereas the number visible on its torque tube seems to read either 89 or 68 . Thus it is possible that this lot has no claim to the registration number APH 322 especially as chassis D363 began life as a Family (4-seater) model. By contrast chassis 89 was built as a Sports (2-seater) model. The Morgan Three Wheeler Club have told us they would support an application to the DVLA for chassis 89 (or chassis 68 ) to be allocated an agerelated registration number provided that the Morgan was rebuilt with appropriate period parts . In need of extensive restoration the Three-Wheeler appears to be fitted with a water-cooled Matchless V-twin engine (MX2 673) and separate threespeed manual gearbox. Sporting a barrel back body it is self-evidently incomplete. Nevertheless this barn find Morgan has the makings of a worthwhile project. Offered for sale with sundry spares but no documentation. A collection of Morgan 3-Wheeler spares including what is believed to be a F-Type chassis as well as an air-cooled sidevalve JAP V-Twin engine (probably industrial or agricultural) torque tube rear wheel hub pair of front wings two gearboxes and three wire wheels. Offered for sale strictly as viewed and with no guarantee as to correct identification. 10 ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Between 2008 and 2010 it was treated to a bare metal restoration during which it was repainted in its original livery of Iris Blue and treated to a complete retrim also to original specification. The vendor has retained the car in dry storage restricting its use to car meets and shows only. He presently grades the four-speed manual transmission as excellent and the bodywork paintwork interior trim and four-cylinder engine as all being in very good condition. Summarising the MG as rust free on the button and ready to drive away he is now offering it complete with Heritage certificate and an MOT valid until August 17 of next year. The car s total indicated mileage currently stands at totally feasible (though unwarranted) 96 801. Though based on the chassis and drivetrain of the TR3A the TR4 cut a more modern dash thanks to an all-new Michelotti-styled body. Engine capacity was now 2138cc and other mechanical updates included a wider track front and rear rack and pinion steering and an all-synchromesh gearbox. The optional overdrive was now made to operate on second and third. This desirable right-hand drive TR4A IRS is in barn find condition and is finished in Red with a Black interior. The TR is offered with old style V5 collection of invoices and MOT s from the 1970 s and had been in long term ownership by its previous keeper from 1976 to 2015. It s understood to have been off the road for many years however we are informed it was started in 2016 and is now in need of an extensive restoration. We are told it is mostly complete making this example a rewarding project. ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Despite costing more than most rivals the Sapphire was wellreceived and sold well before the company ceased production of motor cars in 1960 in order to concentrate on aircraft engineering. Purchased as a complete project in Devon in 2015 by a previous owner who intended to carry out a full restoration work never commenced and the car was recently acquired by the vendor and fitted with a new 65AH battery the missing ignition key replaced engine started and found to run well other systems checked over leaving just the coachwork to be refurbished or providing an opportunity to carry out a more comprehensive restoration depending on your preference. Sold strictly as viewed. Launched in July 1948 the Sunbeam-Talbot 90 was essentially a reworking of the company s pre-war 2-litre chassis design. However the newcomer s adoption of overhead valve gear gave it a surprising turn of speed. Quick to capitalise the Rootes competition department hastened the model s development. Thus the 90 MKII of 1950 boasted not only a new chassis with independent front suspension but also a capacity increase to 2267cc. Driven by Stirling Moss Desmond Scannell and John Cooper a MKII finished second overall on the 1952 Monte Carlo Rally presaging the arrival of the faster more powerful MKIIA. Equipped with bigger brakes and slotted wheels to assist cooling the latter could be had in four-door Saloon or two-door Drophead Coupe guises. Bodied by Thrupp & Maberley the soft top MKIIA proved to be the rarest 90 derivative. Finished in Grey matched to a Grey interior the sale example entered current ownership in 2009 and has been subject to degree of recommissioning which has included a new wiring harness overhauled brakes and a new exhaust. Displaying 47 188 miles the vendor currently grades the engine gearbox paintwork and interior as average . 12 ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Thanks to its ingenious high low ratio four-wheel drive system the resultant 4x4 was possessed of incredible climbing ability in all conditions including battlefields. This UK supplied Land Rover 107 pick-up was first registered on 8th October 1956 and comes with a host of old tax discs from new. The two-litre petrol engine is believed to be the original unit and is said to be in good condition as is the bodywork gearbox and interior trim. A buyer may wish to smarten the old paintwork or use the vehicle as is. An invoice on file details recent work to the front and rear brakes and a re-cored radiator. Finished in grey with grey interior the odometer displays some 68 450 miles and the Swansea V5 indicates the registration RAA 293 is transferable. With the 70th anniversary of production coming up next year interest in the marque is sure to grow and now may well be a wise time to buy. A Mr Ted Clarkson of Preston Lancashire was the first keeper of the Jaguar MKII 340 CPP 350F . In 1973 it was removed from the road for no more than general repairs but didn t in fact return to use until purchased by a Mr William Winder of Blackpool in 1998 and it was he that instigated a comprehensive two year restoration that included the engine interior and bodywork. The vendor acquired the Jaguar in 2014 and is offering it as refurbished with bodywork in Dark Green and interior trimmed in Pale Green leather. The finishing touches are the chrome wire wheels shod in whitewall tyres as per the American specification of the period. The restored 340 has apparently been the star of a number of magazine articles and is now available complete with fitted tow bar photographs of the restoration original sales brochure and collection of old invoices and MOT certificates plus one valid into August 2018.

Much admired within Club circles the all-important freewheel system functions properly as does the leak-free sunroof lubrication system and opening front screen. A heater has also been fitted to improve passenger comfort. Finished in Black with Blue leather upholstery the vendor describes the bodywork paintwork engine gearbox and interior as all being in very good order as one would expect from such a cherished vehicle. Complete with distinctive registration number FUF 100 this charming Rover is offered with numerous invoices for works carried out and MOT until September 2018. A just reward for the efforts expended was an invitation for the car to be displayed at Goodwood House in 2009. Quite simply delightful. If you are seeking a project with which to while away the long winter evenings then look no further. The vendor of this 1971 Chevy rolling chassis purchased it as a relative wreck in 2012 and invested 10 000 with Classic American Restorations of Powys in having the bodywork restored. A new keeper is now required to complete the project and bring this former US military vehicle back to the road where it can be enjoyed. It is being sold at No Reserve so if a Chevelle is the car you always promised yourself you could well bag yourself a bargain. This mid-sized Chevrolet was produced in three generations from 1964 to 1978 and was one of its maker s most successful models that were offered in Saloon Coupe Convertible and Estate Car guises. The sale car is an example of the second generation Saloon and would have been powered by any one of several straight-six of V8 engines. 14 ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Though it effectively replaced the 6 Series it was originally intended as an additional model line - an upmarket range with superior performance and price tag to match. From mid-1995 the 840Ci s original 4.0-litre engine was supplanted by a 4.4-litre one. The notably tidy automatic example being sold is finished in the attractive combination of Bahama Blue bodywork and Cream hide interior. It has covered 69 200 miles and has had just five keepers from new the most recent of whom has covered just 1 000 miles a year in his two years of ownership.

Sharing the same basic (R107) platform architecture as its convertible sibling the Mercedes-Benz 450SLC fixed head coupe was introduced in 1972. A full four-seater equipped with independent suspension power steering and disc brakes it proved a refined grand tourer. Predominantly allied to automatic transmission its 4520cc SOHC V8 engine developed a quoted 217bhp and 265lbft of torque. This LHD example was previously registered to Island Trading Co and Palm Pictures (V5 on file) under licence plate HYD 1 and the vendor informs us it is believed to have been used by reggae legend Bob Marley when visiting the UK. Chris Blackwell record producer and businessman had helped forge Marley s career and was the founder of Palm Pictures and Island Records. Finished in black with grey black cloth interior the vendor now rates the bodywork paintwork engine gearbox and interior as very good .

The top speed was up to 75mph the ride was firm but the entire driving experience was exhilarating. A total of 3 003 TAs were produced until 1939.

Initially available with a choice of six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission the DB7 Vantage could be had with ZF s Touchtronic semi-auto from 2000 onwards (0-60mph in 4.9 seconds limited 165mph top speed).

Very much a full-size car in miniature and therefore appealing to the same market as the Austin 7 in Britain early Quadrilettes were characterised by their narrow track and tandem seating. Incorporating more space for people and luggage alike the wider tracked Type 172 arrived during 1923 (complete with two abreast seating). Among the rarest Quadrilette variants the Type 172 BS or Grand Sport was powered by an enlarged 720cc engine. Aimed at the sporting motorist its sleek torpedo coachwork was typically teamed with blade wings. Very much in the same idiom as the Austin 7 Ulster and Amilcar CGS Grand Sport the Peugeot was rarer than either. Only available for 1924 just 100 Type 172 BS Grand Sports were made. Originally registered in France (or so an accompanying Permis de Circulation from 1933 which identifies it as a Type 172 BS would suggest) this delightful Grand Sport has more recently been resident in Belgium where it wore the number plate OA1767 and was the property of Daniel Vanhoolant. Understood to have participated in numerous Ecurie Les Trapadelles events and still bearing the Club s name to its cowl the Peugeot also wears a Veteran Car Club of Belgium plate confirming its year of manufacture. Selfevidently the subject of much past restoration work the Grand Sport has been discretely modified with a propshaft-driven alternator electric cooling fan and electronic ignition (hidden within the magneto).

Originally powered by a Standard 10 OHV engine allied to a four-speed Moss gearbox the 4-4 acquired what appears to be a Ford 1172cc sidevalve four-cylinder engine prior to being abandoned on the vendor s farm over twenty years ago. Now in need of total restoration the presence of a 0-8 000rpm Aquaplane rev counter and twin spare wheels suggest that the Morgan may have had past competition usage. Offered for sale with a quantity of spares but no documentation. William Morris sturdy and affordable Cowley helped change British motoring from an elitist pastime to transport for the masses and therefore hold an important place in automotive history. No less than 150 000 were produced between 1919 and 1926. This very well presented example is finished in Blue and trimmed in leather of the same colour. It was treated to a extensive restoration back in 2003 but has since averaged less than 100 miles between MOT tests. The venerable Morris has remained within the same family ownership for the last 20 years and is considered by the vendor to have excellent bodywork complete with dickie seat interior trim engine and transmission and very good paintwork.

The sleek-looking Jaguar XK8 first broke cover at the 1996 Geneva Salon as a replacement for the ageing XJS. Designed in-house by Geoff Lawson the newcomer (in common with the Aston Martin DB7) was based on a much modified XJS platform - the changes to which included the adoption of XJ40-type independent rear suspension. The standard version of the XK8 was powered by a 290bhp normallyaspirated version of the company s AJ26 V8 engine and for those requiring more performance Jaguar offered a supercharged version the mighty XKR. Like the XK8 this 370bhp monster was available in closed or open guise and could hit 60mph in a whisker over five seconds and power quickly to the electronically-limited top speed of 155mph.

An accomplished town car criticism as to its lack of pace was answered by the introduction of the 12 50 for 1963. Powered by an 1147cc four-cylinder OHV engine that developed 51bhp and 63lbft it was capable of some 80mph. Visually distinguished by a new grille the 12 50 also boasted a folding Skylight sun-roof and front disc brakes.

Able to seat up to six thanks to the provision of a front bench seat and column gearchange the Ford duo were powered by a new generation of oversquare engines. Notably rugged and surprisingly quick the 2262cc OHVengined Zephyr Six proved a highly effective rally car with Maurice Gatsonides winning the 1953 Monte Carlo Rally aboard one (beating a Jaguar MKVII into second place) and Vic Preston piloting another to victory on the 1955 East African Safari Rally. Updated in September 1952 the Zephyr gained a revised dashboard with a separate instrument pod that mimicked the shape of its grille. For those Zephyr owners who wanted more performance Raymond Mays offered a range of tuning goodies from twin carburettors to freer-flowing exhausts. Suitably enhanced the six-seater Ford could give contemporary sportscars a run for their money with a 95mph top speed Finished in Blue with Light Grey leather upholstery this particular example has formed part of a private Irish collection since 2006. The Ford s front and rear bench seats have been re-trimmed at some stage (leather was an optional extra in period) but its door cards look to be original. Under the bonnet the Zephyr s six-cylinder engine sports a tubular exhaust manifold but otherwise things appear pretty standard. The saloon s rear window carries an aftermarket sun blind.

It brought additional brightwork over-riders dummy front grille wheel trims full carpet added sound-proofing and a generally upgraded interior including door-operated courtesy lights and integral ashtrays. Launched in late 1966 with the slogan Hallo Beautiful - meet the Imp with the fast-back look the Californian also sported a raked windscreen lowered roof line dropped steering column and curved side windows for increased shoulder room etc. The work of in-house stylist Ron Wisdom its svelte lines hid a revised front suspension set-up (less positive camber and reduced ride height) that resulted in more predictable exploitable handling. Some 71 more expensive than its Saloon sibling the handsome Coupe accounted for circa 6 100 domestic sales before production ceased in 1970.

As such it came equipped with electric windows power-assisted rack and pinion steering and servo-backed disc drum brakes as standard. Based around a two-door monocoque bodyshell (stylist Giovanni Michelotti had physically shortened a pre-production Triumph 2000 saloon in order to fashion the initial prototype) the newcomer featured all-round independent suspension (McPherson strut front semi-trailing arm rear) and a well laid-out 2 2 cabin. Neatly integrated the substantial rollover hoop that joined the B-pillars gained extra strength from a T-bar link to the windscreen frame. With some 145bhp and 167lbft of torque on tap from its bespoke 2997cc SOHC V8 engine the model was reputedly capable of 120mph. Available with a choice of fourspeed manual or three-speed automatic transmission all but the earliest Stags benefited from both hard- and soft-top roofs.

The sale car is finished in the contrasting combination of Black bodywork and hood and Beige leather interior. It was imported to the UK in 1998 since when it has been converted from left to righthand drive. It was also treated to a new mohair hood in 2016 and a complete engine overhaul in 2017. The vendor now classes the 1.8-litre DOHC engine as excellent the bodywork as very good and the paintwork interior trim and five-speed manual transmission as good . This handsome Fiat currently displays a credible but unwarranted 58 540 miles and is being offered complete with MOT valid to June 28 next year. Debuting alongside Jaguar s superbly glamorous XK120 at the 1948 London Motor Show the Morris Minor was somewhat overshadowed. An exceptionally advanced design the Minor was the brainchild of Sir Alec Issigonis. With a monocoque chassis independent torsion-bar front suspension all-round hydraulic drum brakes and rack and pinion steering the model possessed excellent handling but lacked the horsepower to exploit it. However things improved markedly when the four-cylinder 1098cc OHV A-series equipped Series V was introduced in 1962. With up to 45bhp and 60lbft of torque being transmitted to its rear wheels via a four-speed manual gearbox the Series V was capable of some 77mph. Reputedly first owned by Mrs Nellie Baldwin of Thirsk - the sole previous keeper listed on its V5C Registration Document - this particular example has formed part of the Old Hall collection since July 1977. Used by the vendor s children to learn to drive and as shared weekend wheels the Morris is understood to have covered just 42 900 miles from new.

Development of the G-Wagen - short for Gelandewagen or Cross Country Vehicle - began during the early 1970s at the suggestion of the Shah of Iran (then a major Mercedes-Benz shareholder). Exhaustively tested amidst the German coalfields Sahara Desert and Artic Circle the first workable prototype emerged during 1974. Entering production five years later the G-Wagen began its metamorphosis from functional off-roader to luxury SUV in 1981 when niceties such as air-conditioning and automatic transmission joined the options list. Available in short- and long-wheelbase guises Mercedes-Benz s evergreen 4x4 was thoroughly revised for 1990.

It was built with a considerable number of desirable factory-fitted options including overdrive wire wheels adjustable steering column tonneau cover laminated windscreen and heater. Fifty two years on and the mileage stands at an eminently credible (be it unwarranted) total of 93 700. In 2009 the car benefited from an overhaul of its twin SU carburettors and the installation of an electronic ignition system. The gearbox and overdrive unit were overhauled in 2016 and in recent times the Healey has been repainted in its current shade of Blue retrimmed in Bluepiped Cream hide and treated to a fresh Blue mohair hood. Taking all these improvements into account the vendor presently views the bodywork paintwork interior trim straight-six engine and manual four-speed gearbox as all being very good order and is now selling the 3000 complete with Heritage certificate and collection of invoices and old MOTs plus a current MOT valid into March of next year. The Austin-Healey 100 was the toast of the 1952 London Motor Show from when the newcomer enjoyed steady development. The four-cylinder cars gave way to the 100-Six of 1956 which in turn was replaced by the first of the 3000s in 1959. The final iteration was the 3000 MKIII which was launched in October 1963 and mildly upgraded (Phase 2) in May the following year.

Invoices on file to him cover the period to 1978 when it is understood the car was sold. By 1987 it was in the possession of Alpine Grant the brother of musician Eddy Grant. Passing through the custody of four other keepers it was acquired by the vendor in 2006. Subsequently kept in a dehumidified heated garage it presents well with only minor marks to the dark blue paintwork. The blue hide and interior woodwork also look very good.

The chassis changes were especially key to the model s success as this was to be an unashamedly sporting motorcar requiring tauter suspension than the Mulsanne. The front anti-roll bar rate was therefore increased by a whopping 60 per cent and that on the rear by no less than 80 per cent. Tuned dampers replaced the standard units of the Mulsanne and a Panhard rod was fitted to limit lateral movement of the axle. A front air dam was added for improved aerodynamics. The 6 750cc engine with Garrett AiResearch turbo was retuned with Bosch MK-Motronic fuel injection for increased torque. The result was a stump-pulling 487 lb ft - sufficient to launch the leviathan to 60mph in under six seconds and on to a top speed of around 150mph. Braking was by discs all round ventilated at the front. In order to optimise traction and road holding the Turbo R was equipped with wider tyres than the Mulsanne which were mounted on alloy wheels - a first for the marque. The R became one of the Rolls-Royce Group s best-selling models between 1985 and 1995. The immaculate example on offer is a May 1990 model finished in Cobalt Blue and trimmed in Blue-piped Cream-coloured hide. Though on its fifth keeper it has covered a mere 18 162 miles from new so is barely run in. This handsome and exceedingly fast motorcar is now on offer complete with its original wallet of handbooks and stamped service book collection of invoices and print-out of the car s MOT history as well as an advisory-free certificate valid into October next year.

Notably rigid and low-slung the newcomer s chassis was reinforced by the use of a massive tubular cruciform brace and additional perforated channel sections to the inner face of its main side members. Equipped with all-round semielliptic leaf-spring suspension Luvax adjustable dampers and large-diameter drum brakes the BI 105 was powered by a free-revving 3-litre straight-six engine allied to Wilson pre-selector transmission. A rival to models from Alvis Bentley and Lagonda just 97 BI 105s are thought to have been made. This fascinating project has been in the current ownership for the past eight years following its acquisition from Birmingham coachbuilder Jack Castle. The vendor has now reluctantly decided that family commitments will prevent him from lavishing the time and attention required to restore the car. We are informed that much work was carried out in the 1980s including an engine overhaul by Arthur Archer (never run since and free) and an overhaul of the pre-selector gearbox. The suspension and braking system were also attended to whilst much of the brightwork has been rechromed. The vendor believes almost all parts needed accompany the car together with a Swansea V5C two old buff logbooks and a history file containing two original handbooks and information from Archers.

The vendor informs us this light blue example has enjoyed just three previous owners since being first registered in February 1968. The second owner was a stepson of renowned Lotus racer Adam Currie. A replacement Spyder chassis was fitted in 1988 whilst some 6 000 was invested in recommissioning works in 2010 with specialists Bateman s Performance Engineering including new CV drive shafts fuel tank ignition brakes etc. A recent hood has also been fitted and a tonneau cover is included. In storage for the past four years PXE 468F would now benefit from attention to the cosmetics and in our opinion would make an ideal winter project. XFO 698 is a genuine righthand drive TD that spent some of its early life in New York and comes with an original Big Apple tax disc. In 1997 it crossed the Atlantic to the Isle of Man before being acquired by the vendor in 2006. Since then it has been treated to a body-off restoration and respray in Ivory which is complemented by Black interior trim and weather equipment. The MG further benefits from the installation of a five-speed gearbox (the original will be available to the purchaser) and stainless steel exhaust system.

Power came from Ford of Britain s trusty V6 Essex engine over-bored to 3091cc and equipped with hand finished inlet and exhaust ports for superior gas flow. The result was a lusty output of 148bhp at 5500rpm leading to a 0-60mph acceleration time of 7.3 seconds and a top speed in excess of 125mph.

Built as a monocoque with an engine cradling front sub-frame the model s combination of all-round independent suspension rack-and-pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes gave it excellent roadholding handling capabilities. Fed by triple SU HD8 carburettors and topped with a straight port DOHC cylinder head its 3781cc straight-six engine was quoted as developing some 265bhp and 260lbft. Allied to a four-speed Moss gearbox the free-revving unit reputedly enabled the E-type to sprint from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and onto 150mph. Seemingly borrowed from a light aircraft the wonderful turned aluminium centre console that adorned its dashboard was complemented by scalloped Dunlopillo seats and a wood-rim steering wheel. Achingly beautiful yet viciously quick the E-type remains for many the ultimate production Jaguar.

Although the two-seater still required fettling when acquired by previous keeper Brian Marshall of Hitchin during January 1995 as assorted bills from the likes of XK Engineering Ltd SC Parts Group and SNG Barratt testify. Sparingly used by Mr Marshall VSU 331 is thought to have covered just under 2 000 miles in his hands. Dry stored for a couple of years prior to entering the current ownership during June 2012 the Jaguar has since been recommissioned. As well as new gaskets its 3.8 litre straight-six engine gained a new hi-torque starter motor and improved oil filtration system. Pleasingly the cylinder block appears to be the car s factory-fitted original while its cylinder head looks to be a correct-type replacement (from another pre1963 E-Type). A fresh in-tank fuel pump was fitted and the fuel system gone through. The suspension was polybushed and the brakes overhauled with the rear subframe being removed checked over and repainted too. Starting readily upon inspection and presented in its original livery this delightful E-Type has been exhibited at several local car shows and is expected to possess a fresh MOT certificate by the time of sale. 57 REG NO CHASSIS VSU 331 877233 ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Conceived as a high-mobility infantry vehicle capable of resisting small arms fire and shell mortar splinters whilst carrying a dozen troops at speeds in excess of 40mph the M3 Half-Track was also considerably easier to drive than a FullTrack machine. Despite the best efforts of the White Autocar and Diamond T Motor Companies demand was still outstripping supply by mid1941. Approached by the US Army s Ordnance Department the International Harvester Company of Chicago Illinois designed its own version. Utilising 5 16-in homogenous armoured plate (as opposed to 1 4-in face hardened steel) the resultant M5 was heavier than the M3 but compensated by featuring a strengthened chassis and hull tougher banjo axles and more powerful International Harvester RED-450B straight-six OHV engine. Credited with developing some 143bhp and 348lbft of torque the latter was allied to four-speed manual transmission. Visually distinguished by its flat-section front wings and rounded rear corners the M5 is deemed by many to be the ultimate Half-Track. Over half of the 4 625 IHC Half-Track M5 Personnel Carriers made came to Britain to be distributed under the LendLease programme. Delivered on April 27th 1943 this particular example - serial number M5-2696 - is believed to have been used by Polish forces during the Allied liberation of Europe and thus may even have participated in the capture of the Kriegsmarine naval base at Wilhelmshaven. Known to have been in Germany following the cessation of hostilities it was thoroughly overhauled by the Mercedes-Benz Works before being reallocated to the French Army. 58 REG NO CHASSIS Un-Reg M5-2696 51 ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Then a Supreme Court Judge and chateau owner Mr Amerijckx took some persuading but eventually sold the M5 Personnel Carrier to Dutch enthusiast Ivo Rigter in 1987. Determined to return the IHC machine to factory specification and condition Mr Rigter scoured Europe and the United States in search of correct parts. Some twenty-seven years and 2 500 restoration hours later the Half-Track was finally completed to his satisfaction. Despite their Mercedes-Benz overhaul plaques the pre-refurbishment engine and gearbox were found to be too heavily water damaged to reuse. Another RED-450B straight-six OHV engine was duly found (and turned out to have been overhauled by Bugatti during the early 1960s) while Mr Stel from Radio Kootwijk provided a replacement gearbox. The rear tracks were sourced from Portugal and any truly obscure components made from scratch by Mr Rigter and his team. A hobby that turned into a business by the time M5-2696 was completed Mr Rigter had founded the BAIV BV International Trading Company (BAIV standing for British and American Invasion Vehicles).

Guy was a highly driven individual who left a lasting impression on the British Motor Industry. Within four months his fledgling concern not only had its own factory at Fallings Park Wolverhampton but was also producing an innovative 30cwt lorry. Built using a much lighter form of pressed steel frame (where rivals employed far heavier rolled steel channel ones) the latter became renowned for its ability to cross rough terrain. Diversifying into the manufacture of aero engines and even depth charges during WW1 Guy Motors Ltd dabbled with motorcar production during the 1920s before concentrating on commercial vehicles. The firm s famous Red Indian mascot appeared in 1934 (inspired by its Feathers in our Cap advertising slogan) and that same decade witnessed the launch of the forward-control Otter. Reintroduced after WW2 the Otter could be had with a choice of petrol or diesel engines and from 1952 featured an all-steel cab. Formerly the property of the Wednesbury Tube Company this particular example is a long wheelbase alloy-bodied drop side flat lorry. Powered by a 3.8 litre Gardner 4LK diesel engine allied to a David Brown gearbox and driving the rear wheels via an Eaton two-speed back axle it was treated to an extensive chassis up restoration during the 1990s. Recently re-painted to a high standard the Otter sports a Red chassis Burgundy cab body and Black wheels.

Christened LXV (65 in Roman numerals) the edition was limited to 65 vehicles making it rare from the outset. Each was based on the two-door Defender Hard Top model and powered by the company s proven 120bhp 2.2-litre diesel driving through a six-speed manual gearbox. Special exterior treatment that defined the LXV included Santorini Black paintwork teamed with contrasting Corris Grey roof grille and headlight surrounds and 16-inch Sawtooth alloy wheels. The interior boasted leather trimmed seats with LXV-embossed headrests and unique orange stitching for the seats steering wheel and centre storage compartment.

It made its debut at the 1961 Geneva Salon and was the fastest production car of its time - its 3.8-litre straight-six engine allowing a 0-60mph acceleration time of a whisker over seven seconds and a top speed of circa 150mph. From birth the car was available either as a Fixed Head Coupe or two-seat Roadster. The engine size was increased from 3.8 to 4.2-litres in October 1964. With the change came a sweeter all-synchromesh gearbox better brakes and more comfortable seats. For 1966 a 2 2 version of the Coupe was added to the range. It was 9in longer and featured a more vertical windscreen. The Series 3 cars were introduced in 1971 virtually all of which were fitted with Jaguar s new 5.3-litre V12 engine. The original wheelbase was discontinued and the revised car offered only as Roadster or 2 2 Coupe. Production continued until the model was superseded by the XJS in 1975 by which time some 15 000 V12engined cars had been produced. The manual transmission Roadster on offer is a very original March 1972 example that has been in the current family ownership since 1979.

It is based on an AM2 rolling chassis purchased from Ren Barke of Normandy in 2008. The instigator of the project was a trained engineer member of the British Hotchkiss Society and owner of a later AM80 model so well qualified to take on the task. The chassis was completely stripped and the engine gearbox torque tube rear axle and running gear all totally refurbished. The open tourer coachwork was copied from the Gurney Nutting body of the restorer s AM80. Its construction comprised a framework of French ash panelled in 2mm birch WBP plywood (apparently as used on the WWII De Havilland Mosquito). The outer structure was then finished with a layer of British Racing Green-coloured fabric and the interior trimmed in Beige leather. The comprehensive engine overhaul included a crankshaft regrind cylinder rebore new pistons valves and bearings and machining of the cylinder head. For superior lubrication a contemporary full-flow oil filter was installed with additional feed to the timing gears. The completed masterpiece first took to the roads in March last year and has covered just 1 000 since. As all aspects of BF 7189 are either new or refurbished it s no surprise that the vendor presently considers the bodywork paintwork interior trim four-cylinder engine and four-speed transmission to all be in very good order and he s now offering this interesting motorcar complete with photographic record of the restoration. The chief interest of the French Hotchkiss concern was the manufacture of munitions and it was a slump in demand for those products that caused it to commence car manufacture in 1903. It is ironic that the Hotchkiss Drive (the transmission system of live axle and open propeller shaft) that still features on the vehicles of many other manufacturers was not used on the AM2.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Although conceived to power a new generation of saloons (starting with the MK VII) Jaguar s first clean sheet engine design debuted aboard the XK120 Roadster. Sir William Lyons reasoning being that it was less risky to prove develop the straightsix DOHC XK unit in a low volume sportscar than a high volume tin top . The same thought process applied to the Coventry manufacturer s second clean sheet powerplant. Hence its much vaunted 5.3 litre SOHC V12 was debugged in the Series 3 E-Type before appearing in the XJ12 Saloon. Reconfiguring the E-Type to house the 60-degree V12 was no easy feat. As well as a new bulkhead and front subframe the Series 3 gained revised steering brake and suspension assemblies plus a host of bodywork and interior changes. With the V12 representing a relative leap into the unknown and the XK unit having a loyal following courtesy of its five Le Mans 24-hours victories Jaguar engineered the Series 3 to accept both powerplants. Early brochures thus mentioned A new Jaguar Engine - the 5.3 litre V12 to supplement the 4.2 litre six cylinder XK engine and even featured pictures of the latter but in reality derivatives equipped with the smaller powerplant were never made available to the general public. Marque authorities have suggested that a mere six or seven cars were factory-fitted with XK DOHC 4.2 litre engines during the development and production of the Series 3 (though some of those were heavily modified Series 2 3 hybrids). As such the Series 3 4.2 litre is rarer than any other E-Type variant including the fabled Lightweight . Presumed lost for many years and so referred to as A Ghost of an E-Type and the one missing link by Jaguar Enthusiast magazine (August 2017 issue) this particular example is wrongly listed on various websites as chassis number 1S70001 or 1W700001. In fact the number clearly stamped into the 2 2-seater s original chassis plate reads 1W70001 while its body and engine numbers are recorded as 4W50001 and 7R39503-9 respectively. Although Jaguar Heritage quote the first left-hand drive Series 3 2 2-seater as being chassis number 1S70001 with body number 4S50001 1W70001 would most likely have been identified as such many moons ago had it not formed part of music producer Pete Waterman s private collection since the late 1980s. A long-term Jaguar enthusiast whose stable has included C- and D-Types as well as other significant E-Types Mr Waterman acquired the unique Series 3 via marque specialist Lynx. Published in the December 1980 issue of Jaguar Driver magazine a letter from the 2 2-seater s then owner James Johnson of Brooklyn New York outlines its early history The car is in all original concours condition save the new paint job carpeting and exhaust system I have had to restore. I have won second and third prizes in Empire Division Jaguar Club Concours which I have entered. The only work needed on the car is to have the engine paintwork detailed. After purchasing the car I became interested in its history and wanted to confirm my suspicions that it was extremely rare.

To begin with Mr Lewis confirmed for me that the car is what I thought it to be. Mr Gardener tells me that this is the Series 3 E-Type 6-cylinder imported by JRT Leonia into the US. He further informed me that this car was used to obtain certification for the 4.2 litre engine for the 1971 model year. In addition he says that the York air conditioning compressor installed in my car is unique as Delco-Air compressors were normally used. In my quest for information about the car I phoned Mr Gardener. He stated that at approximately 10 000 miles he sold the car to a used car dealership in Queens New York City. From there a man bought the car ran it an additional 17 000 miles and died willing the car to his wife. His wife being completely un-automobile orientated wrapped the car in plastic and stored it in her garage for five years. She had met a gentleman in the interim and when he proposed and asked her to move out of the state with him she went about selling the car to me. Unfortunately she wrapped it in plastic so the paint discoloured mottled and peeled off with the plastic when she unwrapped it . Prior to being sold to the used car dealership in Queens New York chassis 1W70001 is rumoured to have been driven by a female member of the Whitehead family. Graham W. Whitehead was President of Jaguar Cars North America for several decades and his involvement might well explain why the E-Type was issued with the distinctive New Jersey registration plate JAG UR .

Carefully dry stored during Mr Waterman s custodianship chassis 1W70001 has been recommissioned and repainted in recent years but remains notably original. Inspected by renowned marque specialists XK Engineering during September 2017 they confirmed that its bodyshell resembles that of a Series 3 production car but noted the presence of 4.2 badging bespoke engine mounts and a six-cylinder exhaust system etc. The original matching numbers engine is seemingly a high 9 1 compression unit (many US-specification E-Types had 8 1 compression ratio powerplants) and has a sequence of mystery drillings in its cylinder head which may have been for an air injection rail. The accompanying Production Record Trace Certificate lists the Date of Manufacture as Not Recorded but confirms that the 2 2-seater was initially finished in Warwick Grey with Red upholstery and built for Jaguar Cars Ltd Experimental Dept . It also notes that this vehicle was later sent to British Leyland New York USA to participate in engine pollution testing . Current legislation would ensure that an experimental car such as chassis 1W70001 was consigned to the crusher.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION 80 A highly gifted and innovative engineer with a passion for motorsport Don Juan Ovidio Alesso initially conceived this enormously ambitious single-seater for domestic Formula Libre racing during the mid late 1940s. However as the likes of Juan Manuel Fangio Benedict Campos and Jose Froilan Gonzales began to establish themselves on the European racing scene so the idea was floated of equipping them with a homegrown machine that could fight for international honours a challenge that Don Alesso was only too willing to accept. Determined that its chassis engine and body should be of Argentinian manufacture he set to work. Influenced by contemporary aeronautical practice the unique multi-tubular frame that Don Alesso fabricated saw several of its members double-up as oil and coolant tanks conduits. Keen to assist with the project Fangio is understood to have sourced a set of Rudge Whitworth wire wheels and the independent front suspension from a competition Alfa Romeo. However Don Alesso rejected the latter because he felt it would be unable to adequately support the newcomer s bespoke powerplant. Displacing 7054cc the flat-twelve engine in question boasted a seven-bearing crankshaft monobloc construction four chain-driven overhead camshafts two valves per cylinder and six downdraught Rochester carburettors. Estimated to develop some 300bhp 4 200rpm it was allied to FIAT 525 manual transmission and drove the rear wheels via a heavy-duty differential (a lighter alternative disintegrated during one of the single-seater s earliest outings). Interestingly Don Alesso s choice of a flat-12 configuration mirrored that of Dr Ferdinand Porsche s 1939 Auto Union and 1946 Cisitalia Grand Prix engine designs (the first Ferrari flat-12 debuted in 1964). Having won the Rafaela 500-mile race on 24th December 1950 aboard a Talbot-Lago T26C Fangio stayed in the area to attend a fund-raising banquet for the Alesso single-seater. Hampered by a lack of funds and teething troubles with the monstrous 7-litre powerplant progress on the Formula Libre project was slow. After a series of successful test bench runs the engine was finally installed on November 11th 1952 with the car making its public debut at Buenos Aires October 17th Autodrome shortly thereafter. Present that day were Juan Manuel Fangio (who had helped arrange the unveiling) and Luigi Villoresi both of whom apparently tried the Alesso and praised it to Peronist World magazine. Argentinian president Juan Peron took an interest in the single-seater promising land and money but sadly neither materialised. Don Alesso continued to develop the car driving it himself on occasion before employing the services of motorcycle champion Francisco Gonzalves who achieved the single-seater s best result at the Parque Urquiza in Parana. A change in Formula Libre regulations saw the car outmoded just as it was beginning to show promise. Clothed by Don Antonio Thimental in thin-gauge steel with an alloy bonnet and originally finished in the Argentinian national colours of blue with a yellow bonnet (traces of which are still visible in places) Don Alesso s amazing creation had been mothballed by the decade s end. Migrating to France during the 1990s the singleseater was then bought by the late Paul Foulkes-Halbard and put on display at his Filching Manor Motor Museum. Mr Foulkes-Halbard is understood to visited Juan Manuel Fangio in Argentina to verify the car s provenance and to have planned to restore it to his former glory. Sadly a fatal stroke in 2003 put pay to such plans. Coming to market for the first time in twenty-two years the Alesso is said to be substantially complete though items such as the clutch rear shock absorbers timing wheels and instruments etc are missing. A fascinating piece of motorsport history with connections to a driver that many consider to the greatest of all time the Alesso will surely be a sight (and sound) to behold once restored.

After initial success on the Monte Carlo Rally three team cars were prepared for the 1933 Mille Miglia to be driven by Earl Howe Hugh Hamilton George Eyston Count Lurani and Henry Birkin Bernard Rubin. Birkin would retire with a broken valve but the remaining cars went on to break existing class records taking first and second in class and winning the team prize as well. Driven by the leading drivers of the day numerous other victories followed and the K3 remained a contender for top class honours in international events for the next couple of years. The late Peter Gregory known throughout the world for his expertise and knowledge of the MG marque was entrusted to restore many notable competition examples and went on to create a limited number of the most exacting evocations of the racing variants. This example was the last produced and built for his own use rather than as a commercial proposition.

The transmission is a correct Wilson Pre-Selector type gearbox. The racing bodywork is painstakingly crafted to represent a 1933 Mille Miglia works car including a slab tank with twin fillers cycle wings and the distinctive torpedo side lamps. The paintwork has been finished in British Racing Green as were the works cars with matching painted 19-inch wire wheels. Aero screens a folding 81 windscreen and full tonneau provide protection from the weather for the driver and passenger.

There were a total of four iterations the third of which boasted ABS Dual airbags independent adjustment of the rear seats and fuel injection (just 465 Spur IIIs were reputedly made). Finished in Metallic Black with Cream leather upholstery this example has had just 2 previous keepers and has been in private ownership since 2000.

Little changed beneath its aluminium skin the model utilised the same independent coil-sprung front suspension De Dion rear axle four-wheel disc brakes and power assisted rack and pinion steering as its predecessors. Predominantly allied to three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission the Tadek Marek designed 5340cc DOHC V8 engine was fed via quad Weber carburettors. Thus equipped Autocar magazine found the Oscar India to be capable of 146mph and 0-60mph in 7.2 seconds. Cementing its Grand Tourer credentials the model featured a smart burr walnut dashboard door cappings and could be had in Fixed-Head or Convertible guises. Total carburettor-fed V8 Volante production amounted to just 439 cars. According to its accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Certificate this particular example was built to left-hand drive North American specification complete with Weber carburettors automatic gearbox cruise control and Avon tyres on 13th June 1980 and despatched a week later to Aston Martin Lagonda Inc USA. Repatriated from California by Warren Classics during 2016 the V8 Volante has since been restored in their workshops (including conversion to European specification). Completely stripped of all components the car was thoroughly assessed by the firm s chief mechanical engineer. The original engine (number V 580 5195 LFA) was given a cylinder leak down test and had its bores timing chains tensioners idler pulleys camshafts tappets and valve clearances checked. A new water pump was installed and refurbishments carried out to the power steering pump air-conditioning starter motor and alternator. The intake manifold was soda blasted and a European 86 specification air box fitted along with new exhaust headers and carburettor gaskets etc. The oil lines and coolers were renewed. All belts were replaced and electronic ignition installed. The brake system was overhauled with many components being gold cadmium or zinc plated and the wiring loom tested and repaired as necessary. The automatic gearbox and differential were inspected and tested. Opening panels were rehung to achieve better alignment and the bodywork rigorously prepared with any uneven areas being reprofiled with a 2-pack alloy filler. Polyester sprayed and primed the exterior was painted in Imperial Blue while the engine bay and underside were finished in Satin Black. The brightwork was rejuvenated and the wooden fascia door cappings re-polished. The interior was re-trimmed with Dark Blue-piped Parchment leather complimented by Dark Blue carpets and a Dark Blue Everflex roof. The instruments were checked and the alloy wheels refurbished. The following companies helped ensure that original specifications were adhered to Nicholas Mee Ltd Aston Martin Heritage Trust Rikki Cann Ltd JMB Services and Atspeed Racing.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION For many people the E-Type remains the ultimate production Jaguar. A car whose heady blend of styling and performance were so exceptional at its 1961 Geneva Motor Show launch they continue to cast a smooth elliptical shadow over the marque s new sports cars some 56 years later Its Malcolm Sayer-penned lines are thought by many to be among the most striking ever to adorn a motor car. Indeed only a few years ago the Daily Telegraph ranked the E-Type top of the 100 most beautiful cars of all time and of course none other than Enzo Ferrari beat them to it by many years when he similarly described it as the most beautiful car ever made . Like the XK150 before it it was born of Jaguar s competition successes on the race tracks of Europe. Make no mistake this was no ordinary motorcar - it was a true thoroughbred. Allied to a monocoque passenger cell the model s tubular front sub-frame cradled a 3781cc DOHC straightsix engine independent torsion-bar suspension and rack and pinion steering while its back axle played host to a sophisticated coil-sprung set-up complete with inboard disc brakes. From birth the E-Type was available either as a Fixed Head Coupe or two-seat Roadster. Among the very fastest cars of its generation contemporary road tests found the newcomer to be capable of 0-60mph in circa 7 seconds and 150mph. Despite this engine size was increased from 3.8 to 4.2-litres in October 1964 and with the change came a sweeter all-synchromesh gearbox better brakes and electrical systems plus more comfortable seats. A mere 863 right-hand drive E-Type Series 1 4.2 Roadsters were made prior to the introduction of the so-called Series 1.5 cars in September 1967. According to its accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Production Trace Certificate this particular example - chassis 1E1482 - was manufactured on 11th February 1966. Finished in Carmen Red with Black leather upholstery it was road registered as LGT 788D and supplied new via Linmac Ltd to Kemal Kansaran of Ilford Essex. However the Roadster s actual first owner is understood to have been Mr Kansaran s business associate Vince Landa. Continuing the distancing trend the E-Type was booked in for its first service at 1 016 miles with Hackney Road Motor Services by Rensa Models Ltd of Long Street London on April 1st 1966.

Relocating to the North East as a result he set-up Social Club Services - a fruit machine business valued at 8m in 1966 - and became the owner of The Piccadilly and Birdcage nightclubs in Newcastle which played host to the likes of Tom Jones and Roy Orbison. Although his main residence was Dryderdale Hall Bishop Auckland he also had a property in Spain and maintained links to London and the South-East. Embroiled in the so-called one armed bandit murder which saw Social Club Services employee Angus Sibbert shot dead on January 4th 1967 LGT 788D was supposedly being driven that night by Michael Luvaglio (Landa s brother) and Dennis Stafford who were subsequently convicted of the crime. Messers Luvaglio and Stafford have long protested their innocence and the whole affair is referenced in Mark Knopfler s song 5 15am as well as being cited as an inspiration for the film Get Carter (which just so happens to feature Dryderdale Hall as the villain s lair). Eventually released by Durham Constabulary to H. Sibley of Pear Tree Garage on 10th September 1968 the Jaguar s next owner was reportedly Norman Gibbs of Hebburn South Tyneside. A quiet spoken gentleman who was rarely seen without a jacket and tie Mr Gibbs kept the car until 1986 when it was bought by Mr Willis a Surrey-based dealer.

Available in Tourer Fixed Head Coupe Folding Head Coupe Coachbuilt Saloon Weymann Saloon and Rally Weymann Saloon guises some 2 560 20.9hp cars are thought to have been made before the model was revised for 1931.

It is true to say that the phenomenal success of the XK120 was completely unexpected by Sir William Lyons and his team whose post-war focus was the MKVII Saloon. However as that car and its XK engine neared completion in 1948 it occurred to Lyons that a sports car powered by the stunning new DOHC unit would probably outperform almost anything else in production at the time. The extraordinary decision was therefore made to design and build an XK-powered two-seater in time for display at the Earls Court Motor Show of October 27 - an apparently impossible task in the time available. However within a few days of the Bronze show car going on display it was evident that a complete rethink was required - such was the euphoria with which the XK120 was greeted. In the end production spanned five years and the car was produced in three guises - Roadster Fixed Head Coupe and Drophead Coupe the combined production volumes of which were 12 055.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION In the early 1970s Porsche had designs on racing a turbocharged 911 in support of which they planned a homologation special along the lines of the Carrera 2.7 RS. A subsequent rule change negated the need for a precise number of street legal vehicles but the company continued with the project anyway. Unveiled at the October 1974 Paris Show the resultant Porsche 911 Turbo (930) was routinely among the fastest - if not THE fastest - accelerating supercars that money could buy during its fifteenyear production run (1975-1989). The newcomer was based around the Carrera 3.0 RS the engine from which was modified courtesy of turbo technology originally developed for the legendary 917 30 CANAM cars. Initially displacing 3.0 litres the need to keep pace with such rivals as the Ferrari 512BB and Lamborghini Countach saw its force-fed flat-six grow to 3.3 litres in 1978. Although the adoption of Bosch fuel injection some four years later brought no more horsepower it did result in greater torque and better throttle response. Thus equipped the 911 Turbo was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds and 162mph. To accommodate its extra performance over the 3.0 RS the 930 sported revised suspension larger brakes and a robust four-speed gearbox. In order to help deliver power to the road a whale tail rear spoiler was fitted and a wider rear wheel tyre package was squeezed under specially flared arches. Adding this level of grunt to the already oversteerprone handling of the 911 created a car that did not suffer fools gladly. In skilled hands however a 930 will show a clean pair of heels to most rivals. Dropped during 1979 due to emissions legislation the 930 returned to the US market for the 1986 model year achieving 1 424 sales. Among them was this particular example - chassis WPOJB0937GS050579 - which was built to special order as denoted by its L999 paint-to-sample coding. Finished in Meteor Metallic with Burgundy leather upholstery its build specification also included Sport Steering Wheel with Elevated Hub 30mm Blaupunkt Reno Radio sqr 46 Locking Differential 40% AntiTheft Device Sunroof . Reportedly supplied new to Dr Dorrance Kelly the Porsche was to remain with him until entering the current ownership last year. A renowned maxillofacial surgeon and art collector it is thought that Dr Kelly had the 930 upgraded with various Sonderwunschen -type features by Alan Johnson Racing. A four-time SCCA National Champion who held a Porsche franchise until 1990 Mr Johnson s AJ USA concern is known to have modified several 911 Turbos to Flat Nose specification. As well as an AJ USA intercooler chassis WPOJB0937GS050579 boasts an adjustable front strut brace front air dam quad exhaust pipes sill extensions vented rear wings and BBS alloy wheels. Not wanting for visual drama the Porsche is thought to have covered just 76 744 miles from new. The car has self-evidently been well maintained but unfortunately the corresponding records never made their way across the Atlantic (the only stamps in its original service book relate to the pre-delivery inspection and first oil-change). Pleasingly retaining its factory-applied door aperture boot lid and paint code stickers the 930 also carries one for Brown University (where Dr Kelly obtained a masters degree). Described by the vendor as easily the best of the three 930s that he has owned he rates its engine gearbox electrics bodywork paintwork and interior trim as all being excellent . In addition to having its sun-bleached Burgundy hides recoloured by Bespoke Leathering of Tamworth the Porsche has been treated to new oil and filters etc plus replacement handbrake shoes.

The Landie was designed for light agricultural use and to create the cashflow required to kickstart Rover s post-WW2 passenger car production. Inspired by the WW2 Jeep its specification was influenced by the austere conditions of the time - it featured the extensive use of aluminium rather than steel and rapidly became the workhorse of the world.

In an age when a decent family saloon could call upon its engine for 65bhp the E-type s 3781cc DOHC straight-six claimed an additional 200bhp. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in under 7 seconds and 150mph the Jaguar also possessed excellent roadholding and handling capabilities. While Ferrari s lauded 250GT SWB and 250 GTO made do with live rear axles and steering boxes the E-type utilised a sophisticated independent rear set-up with inboard disc brakes and rack and pinion steering. Total right-hand drive 3.8 litre Fixed Head Coupe production amounted to just 1 799 cars. 815 FYK was hailed as the barn find of the year when it came to auction in 2016. Headline friendly the Jaguar had been supplied new via Broadway Autos of Cricklewood to J & I Arbiter Ltd. The owner of Drum City and Sound City Ivor Arbiter was an important part of London s music scene during the Swinging Sixties and famously designed the drop - T logo for The Beatles (for which he was paid 5 ). Mr Arbiter kept the E-Type until November 1965. Thereafter it passed to S.B. Cain Howard H Measham and Frank Riches. Period photos show the latter racing the Fixed Head Coupe at Oulton Park Brands Hatch and Blackbushe from late 1967 until 1969 when its clutch failed. Never returned to the road by Mr Riches 815 FYK spent the next forty-six years being stored in a lock-up or under a tarpaulin in his back garden. Attracted by the Jaguar s provenance undoubted originality and low odometer reading of 44 870 miles (a highly credible figure given its lengthy period of inactivity) Warren Classics paid some 57 900 to acquire it. 99 No stranger to the Jaguar marque Warren Classics counts several ex-Fullbridge Restoration Company employees among its staff. Stripped to component form the past year has seen the E-Type exquisitely refurbished to concours award winning condition.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Herbert Austin was nothing if not ambitious. By the outbreak of the First World War the company that bore his name was Britain s fifth largest motorcar manufacturer. However the firm with which he had begun his motoring endeavours Wolseley was the biggest. Accepting government contracts for aircraft shells heavy artillery and 3-ton lorries saw the Austin Motor Company prosper during WW1 and its workforce expand from 2 500 to 22 000. Sensing an opportunity to leapfrog his rivals and taking a leaf from Henry Ford s book Herbert Austin decided to offer just a single model when peace returned. Hugely impressed by the Hudson Super Six he ran during the hostilities - an example of which had successfully completed the first two-way transcontinental trip from New York to San Francisco and back in 1916 - he challenged his designers to create a similarly well-engineered machine. The first prototype Austin Twenty began to take shape in the chassis erecting shop at Longbridge during 1917 and an abridged specification was published in that September s issue of The Austin Advocate magazine. Like the Hudson Super Six the newcomer featured a substantial ladder frame chassis equipped with all-round semi-elliptic leafsprung suspension rear wheel brakes an engine of monobloc construction with in-unit centre-change gearbox and a sheet metal radiator cowl. Displacing 3610cc its unstressed sidevalve four-cylinder engine developed 40bhp 2 000rpm (an output sufficient for Austin to later warrant that the chassis could 100 REG NO CHASSIS OB 6912 P1E17 105 ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Eminently tuneable privateer Felix Scriven s Sergeant Murphy and the Works Black Maria both proved that an Austin Twenty could beat a Bentley 3 Litre or Vauxhall 30 98 in competition (Scriven s mount reaching 104mph at Brooklands). Labelled P1 s (with P signifying Post War) two prototype Austin Twenties were readied for 1918 a Landaulette and a Tourer. Road registered as OB 6912 the latter sported a commodious four-door five-seater body with a prominent hood well and internal storage for two spare wheels. With dreams of producing 25 000 cars a year (a gargantuan increase on the 3 000 that Wolseley had managed in 1914) Herbert Austin despatched Works test driver Edgar Wren on a nationwide trip aboard OB 6912 to drum-up interest. With a projected price of just 495 for the Tourer and thanks also to the efforts of sales organiser Alfred Dupuis who travelled the Commonwealth and was reliant merely on photos and specification sheets Austin had attracted some 6 000 000 worth of orders by July 1919. Unfortunately the company could not fulfil them. The government tax on excess war profits meant that Herbert Austin could not afford to fully equip his expanded factories and the awful carnage of World War One had resulted in a severe shortage of skilled labour. Without the hoped-for economies of scale Austin found itself losing money on every Twenty sold and thus had to introduce a temporary surcharge of 100 per car in October 1919. Things went from bad to worse with the global economic slump of 1920-1921 and by December that year Austin was 106 ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL. VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION in receivership. The company famously bounced back with the Twelve and Seven models and the Twenty remained in production until December 1929 by which time some 15 287 had been made. Famously long-lived it was not unheard of for a Twenty to cover in excess of 1 000 000 miles. Indeed the motoring historian and long-term Twenty owner Mike Worthington-Williams has suggested that the model is the hardest wearing machine of all time . Presumed lost for many years OB 6912 was re-registered with the DVLA on August 2nd 1983. A rolling chassis when found it was treated to an extensive ground up restoration during the 2000s with replacement parts being sourced or made as necessary. Using period photos as a guide the car s Tourer coachwork was painstakingly recreated and fitted with such niceties as an Auster screen foldout occasional seats and deep-button Black leather upholstery. There can be comparatively few cars that have been featured in magazine articles ninetyone years apart but as well as gracing the pages of The Autocar in November 1918 and The Austin Advocate in July 1919 OB 6912 was the subject of a four-page article in The Automobile for August 2009.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Unveiled to great acclaim at the August 1933 Ascot Races the Derby Bentley was underpinned by a double dropped chassis featuring all-round semielliptic suspension and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a more potent version of its Rolls-Royce 20 25 sibling s 3669cc OHV straight-six engine allied to four-speed manual transmission the newcomer was soon christened the Silent Sportscar . Responding to increased competition from the likes of Alvis and Lagonda Bentley gave its customers the option of a larger 4257cc engine during the 1936 season. Priced at 50 a comparatively modest sum compared to the cost of a basic chassis the new unit proved so popular that the smaller capacity powerplant was soon dropped. Nicely balanced to begin with the Derby Bentley chassis proved more than capable of handling the extra power and torque. Of the 1 241 4.25-litre variants produced just 46 were clothed by the Parisian coachbuilder Vanvooren. Highly influential during the 1930s (its patents were employed by over forty European rivals) Vanvooren looked set to become Bentley s preferred body supplier for the soon to be introduced Corniche version of the MKV model until WW2 intervened. According to its accompanying copy build card records this particular example - chassis B244GA was intended for use in France and the Continent . Ordered by Franco Britannic Automobiles Ltd on behalf of Monsieur Jean Paul Boucheron of 81 Avenue Malakoff Paris it was loaded aboard the SS Silver Thorn bound for Boulogne on 15th May 1936. Part of the Boucheron jewellery dynasty which had crafted pieces for countless heads of state the world over (the Greville Tiara remains a favourite of the British Royal Family) Jean Paul possessed an understandable eye for detail. As well as having Vanvooren fashion notably handsome pillarless four-door sports coachwork for the Bentley he specified a fuel gauge in litres speedometer in kilometres taller 11x43 rear axle ratio for improved high-speed cruising (which FBA Ltd took from chassis B154GA) special damper settings (120lb front 100lb rear initial load at minimum position) twin side wheel carriers and jewel-like Marchal lights. Given the Paris registration number 740 X 75 the 4.25 litre saw enthusiastic use in Monsieur Boucheron s hands. Treated to a rear axle overhaul during September October 1938 including new gears and half-shafts the Pillarless Sports Saloon also gained dual Lucas Mellotone horns in January 1940 (just months before the invasion of France). The horns were augmented by a centre-mounted spotlight complete with Projecteur switch on the leather covered dashboard while other unusual features included a rear-mounted ski rack and lightweight front seats. Relocating to England the Bentley passed to one of Monsieur Boucheron s relations Dr Louis Hamilton and remained in his care until 2001. Entering the current ownership when Tennants auctioned off the entire contents of Dr Hamilton s magnificent home Southerly the 4.25 Litre had lain dormant for decades. Found to be surprisingly sound and got going with a jury-rigged fuel supply and fresh battery etc the pillarless sports saloon was nonetheless treated to a partial refurbishment. As well as a wings off doors off respray re-upholstered seats and new headlining carpets the Bentley benefited from a cylinder head overhaul and fresh exhaust system etc. Pleasingly retaining its original factory-fitted engine (number P9BS) and distinctive Vanvooren coachwork the four-seater has only recently been granted the UK registration number YWG 928 . Never fully restored it has been sparingly used over the past sixteen years and is still running on an oil-filled coil Only being offered for sale due to the vendor s poor health the Boucheron Bentley is now seeking a third family to own it and perhaps make it the jewel in the crown of their collection. 101 REG NO CHASSIS YWG 928 B244GA 109 ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Outwardly it was almost identical the IIA but the diesel version benefited from a higher compression ratio and the gearbox from synchromesh on all ratios while the cab featured a more modern moulded plastic facia. The vendor informs us that this very pretty matching numbers example has covered just 50 000 miles from new. It is immaculately presented in White over Blue and powered by the standard specification 2.25-litre diesel engine of the period. In recent years it has served as a weekend toy for taking to shows etc. Registered as an historic vehicle it is currently regarded by the vendor as having very good bodywork paintwork Black interior trim engine and transmission.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION By the time the XK150 was launched in May 1957 Jaguar had won Le Mans four times and was about to do so once again - what a backdrop against which to market a new sports car. Though the newcomer was a logical progression of the XK140 subtle changes to the bodywork gave this final iteration of the XK models a distinctly more modern air. The standard engine was the 3.4-litre DOHC straight six unit of the XK140 but most early 150s were fitted with the optional SE version that sported a cylinder head with larger exhaust valves and a pair of 1.75in SU carburettors. Still more power was available from 1958 in the form of the S engine and its straightport head linked to three SUs for which 250bhp was claimed. By the time the model was superseded by the E-Type some 4 445 Fixed Head Coupes 2 672 Drop Head Coupes and 2 265 Open Two Seaters had been produced. This exquisite 150 is possibly the first S version to be constructed and is certainly understood to be only the 7th righthand drive Roadster to leave the factory on the 4th December 1958 to Henlys of London. The first owner was a MR JHL Copper and its then understood to have been acquired by its long term previous keeper a Mr Murdoch Laing - initially of London but later Ross-shire Scotland. VYR 764 was apparently treated to an extensive restoration of engine bodywork and interior in the 1990s but unhappy about the way it was progressing Mr Laing had the task completed by Goldsmith & Young of Warminster. At some stage in the past the block has been replaced with a larger 3.8-litre unit although it still retains the original triple carb head (no. VS16349) which has been modified to run on unleaded fuel and has been fitted with Coopercraft brakes. The vendor acquired the Jaguar in 2011 and presently 115 considers the bodywork paintwork Tan leather interior straight-six engine and four-speed manual transmission to all be in very good condition. This rare and highly desirable XK is currently displaying (an unwarranted) 48 300 miles and is now being sold complete with collection of old MOTs and invoices dialogue of the restoration and Heritage certificate.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Britain s biggest motorcar manufacturer at the outbreak of World War One Wolseley built Hispano-Suiza aero engines under licence during the hostilities before developing its own designs. Part of the Vickers Group it did not want for funds and was able to unveil three new models of 10hp 15hp and 20hp at the Olympia Motor Show during November 1919 (though production proper did not begin for over a year). Benefiting from Wolseley s aero engine expertise the 10hp featured a sophisticated 1260cc four-cylinder OHC engine and three-speed transaxle. Beautifully made the newcomer was - at 545 - also considerably more expensive than many of its rivals. Keen to boost sales Wolseley s managing director Arthur McCormack tasked Captain A.G. Miller with establishing a competition department in 1921 (Miller had enjoyed notably success the previous year with two 1914 Opel Grand Prix cars). Bodied as a single-seater in polished aluminium Miller s first Wolseley Ten racer rose to prominence in late 1921 when it set ten new (1.5-litre class) speed records at Brooklands including averaging 81.79mph for 500 miles Christened Moth the record breaker was said to be comparatively standard mechanically apart from a high-lift camshaft alloy pistons and larger carburettor etc. Suitably encouraged Miller ordered a two-seater version to be built for the Junior Car Club s highly prestigious annual 200-Mile Race at Brooklands. Finishing 8th-in-class at an average of 66.2mph in 1922 the two-seater performed even better the following year finishing 10th overall at an average of 76.25mph. Contesting other events aside from the one it had been constructed for the 200-Mile car came 3rd in the 1922 Armistice Meeting and 2nd in the 1923 BARC August Meeting. The success of Moth and the 200-Mile car even convinced future Bentley Boy Woolf Barnato to commission and campaign Moth II . Sadly the link between Miller and Wolseley was severed when McCormack resigned at the end of 1923. Thereafter the Miller Wolseleys faded into obscurity with none surviving to the present day. Inspired by enthusiast John End s recreation of Moth Colin Thomas set about making a faithful copy of the 200-Mile car in the early 1980s. 116 REG NO CHASSIS CJ 4328 30982 ALL HAMMER PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO A BUYER S PREMIUM OF 15% INCL.

Non-standard parts were faithfully manufactured from drawings such as the high-lift camshaft three-inch diameter outside exhaust pipe extended oil filler neck to facilitate quick pitstops and bespoke outside handbrake etc. Debuting at the VSCC s Prescott Meeting in August 1984 Thomas s 200-Mile Evocation appeared in the Club s Bulletin publication several times and along with End s recreated Moth was the subject of an article by Bill Boddy in Motor Sport magazine. Acquired by Stephen Battye for his impressive Yorkshire Car Museum during 2003 the Wolseley was carefully stripped and reassembled after a period of dry storage. The engine and transaxle were overhauled (with the former receiving a new correctspecification carburettor). The steering and braking systems were inspected and a new bulkhead and dashboard fabricated. As well as appropriate Wolseley instrumentation the cockpit received new Black leather upholstery. The leaf springs were rebound in glace cord and Wolseley 1 sign-written on the radiator cowl and nearside tail to better mimic Miller s original. Kept in carpeted surroundings for the last few years the 200-Mile Evocation is wonderfully detailed and certainly rewards close inspection.

Far more than a souped-up XR3i the newcomer featured heavy-duty suspension improved brakes and a viscous-coupling limited slip differential (the latter a road car first). A production run of 5 000 was planned to homologate the model for Group A competition but demand was such that 8 604 were made (with 5 576 being UK supplied). Only available in Diamond White - except for Lady Diana Spencer s unique Black example the three-door sported a comprehensive body kit and was powered by a turbocharged 1597cc CVH four-cylinder engine allied to five-speed manual transmission. With some 132bhp and 133lbft of torque on tap the Fast Ford was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 7.8 seconds and 128mph. Described by Motor Sport magazine as perhaps the most enjoyable hot hatch currently available on the British market the Escort RS Turbo attracted a cult following that has gone from strength to strength over the last thirty-three years.

However not everybody will know that long before the 911 was a twinkle in Ferdinand Porsche s eye he not only designed the People s Car (the Volkswagen Beetle) but the People s Tractor (the Volk-Schlepper). However with the intervention and politics of WWII it wasn t until 1956 that the famous name was to first appear on a production version of such a vehicle and manufacture was only maintained until 1963 by which time Porsche had other priorities. Under the circumstances the company s tractors are understandably rare and highly prized. The so-called Junior was the smallest and arguably most attractive of the four different models offered all of which were manufactured in the old Zeppelin factory of Friedrichshafen-Manzell Germany and featured an innovative fluid coupling that connected the engine to a six-speed transmission. All four models were diesel-powered and between them covered the needs of most potential purchasers. The choice was as follows Junior - 15hp Standard 25hp Super - 38hp and Master - 50hp. The delightful Junior 108 tractor now offered therefore represents a most unusual opportunity to acquire an agricultural cousin of the contemporaneous 356 car. Presented in the Red livery of all Porsche tractors it was apparently the subject of a restoration around four years ago since when it has formed part of a private vehicle collection. It is presently regarded by the vendor as having very good bodywork paintwork single-cylinder 822cc engine and transmission and will doubtless be of potential interest to anybody with a passion for classic farm machinery and would certainly be the perfect partner to any Porschephile s car collection.

It resulted in many firsts for the company including unitary construction rather than separate body chassis units disc rather than drum brakes and independent rear suspension. Though shorter and narrower than the Silver Cloud III it replaced the John Polwhele Blatchley-penned Shadow nevertheless possessed greater space for both luggage and passengers and certainly boasted far more contemporary looks. At launch it was powered by a 172bhp V8 engine of 6230cc though this was enlarged to 6750cc during 1970. Early cars employed the same GM automatic transmission as the Silver Cloud but this was superseded by the much vaunted Turbo Hydramatic system from 1970 onwards. The car s famed magic carpet ride was achieved courtesy of a high-pressure hydraulic system licensed from Citroen. Initially it featured self-levelling at both ends but this was deleted from the front in 1969. A two-door Saloon variant with coachwork by Mulliner Park Ward was made available from 1966 just 606 examples of which were produced before the model morphed into the Corniche in 1971. On behalf of a valued client this decidedly handsome Mulliner Park Ward two-door Saloon was converted from a Rolls-Royce into a Bentley 30 years ago by marque specialist Royce Engineering.

Subsequently revitalised by Standard impresario Sir John Black Triumph was able to launch two new models - the 1800 Saloon and 1800 Roadster - during 1946. Styled by Frank Callaby the latter was a flamboyant mix of 1930s styling cues and boasted what was reputedly the last dickie seat to be incorporated into a production car. Bodied in Birmabright aluminium alloy over ash (save for its steel pontoon front wings) the Roadster was underpinned by a tubular ladder-frame chassis featuring independent front suspension a live rear axle and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a 1776cc OHV four-cylinder engine (shared with the contemporary Jaguar range) allied to four-speed column-change manual transmission the model was reputedly capable of 80mph. Superseded by a largerengined version in 1948 just 2 501 1800 Roadsters are thought to have been made. According to its accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate this particular example - chassis TRD 1086 - was built to right-hand drive export specification complete with kilometres speedometer on 28th August 1947. An underbonnet plaque for Fergus Motors of New York suggests that the Triumph was resident in America for a while. Repatriated during the late 1980s the Roadster had its engine overhauled by Maidstone Sports Cars during June 1990 (cylinder head refurbished new valves guides fresh piston rings and big end bearings etc).

The Series II Gipsy of 1960 was available in short- (90in) or longwheelbase (111in) guises and had its mountaineering credentials proven when a team of London University students used one to scale Ben Nevis (Britain s highest peak at 4 406ft). There was no Series III Gipsy but at the end of 1962 the leaf-spring equipped Series IV appeared. Gipsy production ceased in 1969 after some 21 208 examples had been sold. A rare Series IV Station Wagon this particular example was reportedly purchased new by the police force in Whitchurch Hants. However the allocation of a fleet of Ford Transits saw the Austin quickly consigned to the role of reserve vehicle and stored in a local garage. Its services were never called upon and the garage proprietor purchased it from the police during 1996. He in turn sold the Gipsy to its previous keeper some seven years later.

VAT ( 20%) THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM DUXFORD AUCTION Jensen s 541 flowed from the pen of Eric Neale and first saw the light of day at the 1953 London Motor Show with production commencing the following year. It had many points of interest including being the first Jensen to feature a predominantly glass reinforced plastic body the entire front section of which hinged upwards in order to give optimum access to the engine compartment. There was also the benefit of a reduction in weight and with the contribution of alloy-skinned doors and Perspex rear windows the newcomer s overall dry weight was 2 690 lb. The body was not only impressively light but aerodynamic too the drag coefficient of 0.39 being notably low for a large car of the period. So to another first - in Deluxe specification the 541 was also the first British four-seater car to be equipped with Dunlop disc brakes all round. The innovative body was mounted on a rigid steel chassis and the ensemble powered by a triple carburettor version of Austin s proven DS5 engine complete with Weslake high compression cylinder head. The resulting output of 135bhp was sufficient to propel Motor magazine s test car to 60mph in 10.8 seconds and on to a mean top speed of 115.8mph. The unit drove through a four-speed manual transmission for which there was the option of Laycock de Normanville overdrive. Suspension was independent at the front by wishbones and coil springs while the live rear axle was supported by leaf springs and further located by a Panhard rod. A total of 226 541s are known to have been built between 1954 and 1959 53 of which were the Deluxe version that featured all the otherwise optional extras as standard. The original 541 had a series production of c.546 of which the Jensen Owners Club believes less than 150 remain in existence. The appropriately registered TSV 541 now offered for sale is a 541 Deluxe that came off the line in November 1958. We should set the scene by pointing out that it won the 126 Jensen Owners Club s Best in Class Cup in 2015 2016 so is certainly no run-of-the-mill example. It was acquired by the vendor in 2012 having been dry stored for around 20 years. At this point it was stripped to a bare shell and every component large or small either replaced or refurbished as required. The exterior finish of vibrant Rosso Red was left unmolested as it remained in fine order from an earlier repaint. The car was however treated to a new Maserati-sourced Mustard Yellow leather interior that s complemented by a bespoke light-coloured wood facia. This delightful Jensen seemingly wants for nothing as its comprehensive specification includes overdrive gearbox twin stainless steel exhausts chrome wire wheels auxiliary front lights period sports wing mirrors and a period push-button radio fed by a roof-mounted aerial. The vendor currently classes the interior trim and transmission as excellent the bodywork and paintwork as very good to excellent and the straight-six engine as very good .

Though not designed as a racer the E-Type was nevertheless a direct descendent of the all-conquering D-Type and thus had motorsport embedded in its DNA. Equipped with all-round independent suspension rack and pinion steering and four-wheel disc brakes its handling and roadholding proved more than a match for most rivals.

Updated during August 1964 the Jaguar gained a larger 4235cc XK DOHC straight-six engine and more user-friendly manual gearbox with synchromesh on each of its four forward speeds. Thankfully the Big Cat s beautiful styling remained unaltered until the introduction of the so-called Series 1.5 cars during September 1967 by which time just 1 584 RHD Series 1 4.2 Fixed Head Coupes had been made. According to its accompanying Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Production Record Trace Certificate this particular example - chassis 1E20499 - was completed on 26th March 1965 and despatched to South London Motors Ltd early the following month. First owned by Derek Clark it subsequently passed to Surrey residents R.H. Hopkins K. Lockhart Michael Hammond and Edward Baylis. Taken off the road during the 1970s the E-Type was re-registered with the DVLA under its original registration number ELA 867C on April 1st 1979. Changing hands three times thereafter the Fixed Head Coupe was purchased by the vendor in October 2013 from Henry Pearman of renowned specialist Eagle E-Types. Mr Pearman had been holding the Jaguar in stock as a suitable candidate for one of his company s restorations but agreed to sell it as was . Enlisting the services of craftsmen local to his Suffolk home the vendor had chassis 1E20499 treated to an extensive bare metal restoration during 20142015. The bodyshell was repaired as necessary and its opening panels trued for alignment before being painted Opalescent Dark Green. The interior was re-upholstered by Aldridge Trimming and the brightwork refurbished. A Tremec T5 five-speed manual gearbox was fitted for improved high-speed cruising (the original gearbox and propshaft come with the car) and the E-Type further upgraded via the installation of a heated rear window electronic ignition updated starter motor Bluetooth hands free telephone facility period looking but modern stereo improved cooling and uprated brakes. Sent to marque specialist Roach Classics Ltd for a stem to stern spanner check ELA 867C was found to need little by way of adjustment improvement. Unhappy with the performance of the car s original matching numbers engine the vendor has just recently had it overhauled again this time by Woodbridge Classic Cars. Still being run in the straight-six started readily upon inspection and ran well during our recent photography visit (October 2017). A handsome home market car ELA 867C has much to recommend it.

Costing 80 000 new the original IT girl bought the car at the peak of her celebrity and was often photographed in this convertible which was her pride and joy . As its paperwork could not be found after her death it was re-registered in her brother s name but has not been driven since. The overall mileage is well-below-average at only c.33 000 miles. The car is now offered for sale by the family the proceeds from which will be distributed between Tara s nieces and nephews. It is finished in Metallic Grey and trimmed in Red leather. In 2005 YE04 WPV was stolen to order by a notorious gang who used a master forger to produce a logbook in a fake name to obtain a key from an unsuspecting BMW dealership in Stuttgart. It was driven away from outside her flat in Kensington and when Tara discovered it was missing she appealed for information offering dinner at the Ivy as a reward. She was thrilled when the car was quickly recovered by the police at Birmingham airport and safely returned to her. Of the 34 high worth cars taken by the gang with a total value of 2 million Tara s treasured BMW was one of only 6 that were ever found. The family presently consider the BMW s bodywork paintwork interior trim 4.4-litre V8 engine and sixspeed automatic transmission to all be in excellent condition.

Since then it has been the subject of a gradual comprehensive restoration that s included conversion to righthand drive a bare metal respray in British Racing Green the installation of new Black leather interior trim (with the exception of the rear seat material) and overhaul of the 4.2-litre engine. Along the way it has acquired a stainless steel performance exhaust manifold and five-speed manual Getrag gearbox. However due to unforeseen circumstances the Jaguar has remained unused since the completion of the work and so is reluctantly being made available for sale. The odometer currently displays a credible (though unwarranted) 59 705 miles and the vendor presently regards the car s bodywork paintwork XK engine and replacement transmission as all being in very good condition and the interior trim as good . The Jaguar comes complete with photos of the respray and engine overhaul. An affordable entry into the wonderful world of the E-Type. The 2 2 Fixed Head Coupe of the immortal E-Type (known as the XKE in America where most examples were sold) was introduced in 1966. Nine inches longer and featuring a more vertical windscreen it was equipped with a pair of small rear seats and a notably airy feel courtesy of its stretched wheelbase and raised roofline. It benefited from the same fully independent suspension rack and pinion steering and disc brakes as its two-seater brethren. Powered by a 4 235cc DOHC straight six engine developing a quoted 265bhp and 283 lbft of torque it was the first E-type model to list automatic transmission as an option. Only in production for some three years a mere 5 600 are thought to have been built just 1983 of which were examples of the Series 1.5 version.

The design was the work of Dr Ferry Porsche s eldest son Ferdinand Butzi Porsche and the company s joint founder and chief body engineer Erwin Komenda. The car featured rack and pinion steering and both torsion bar suspension and disc brakes all round. It was initially powered by a dry-sump air-cooled 2-litre flat six engine which was overhung at the rear and allied to a five-speed manual transmission. In 1968 the 911 s wheelbase was increased by 57mm and the rear overhang reduced by the same amount. In 1969 the engine capacity was increased to 2.2-litres. This was offered in three levels of tune namely T (125 bhp) E (155 bhp) and S (180 bhp). Having spent its life to date in California TTU 881H has avoided the need for restoration and is a lovely unmolested example with just the odd stone chip of its nose and wrinkle of its door decals to confirm its supreme originality. On recently arriving in the UK the Porsche was treated to a light refresh that included new brakes and tyres all round plus a general mechanical service. Its White bodywork is complemented by Tan-coloured vinyl interior trim and it was equipped from new with five-speed manual transmission rather than the optional Sportomatic system. The car is considered by the vendor to go and stop as it should and have excellent bodywork engine and gearbox very good interior trim and good paintwork. He is selling it complete with the original owner s manual and service book invoice for the recent maintenance and an MOT valid into November next year.

One of only three known survivors with coachwork by Jarvis of Wimbledon this Magna was purchased as a project from Dan Margulies in 1975. Following a period of storage a full restoration commenced in 2005. Detailed records of this including an engine overhaul by marque specialist The Montlhery Garage (a full flow oil filter with feed to the rear main bearing and side water pipes to the cylinder head being fitted) are on file. Other works included a new larger capacity fuel tank for longer range new aluminium wings made to exactly replicate the missing originals re-cored radiator overhauled carburettors and dynamo re-spoked wheels and new hood and sidescreens.

A luxurious GT it was styled in-house by American Tony Lapine as a replacement for the ageing 911.

Built around a galvanised steel monocoque the 2 2 made extensive use of aluminium for its wheels doors bonnet transaxle housing front suspension wishbones rear suspension uprights upper links and main cross member. Available with a choice of manual or automatic transmission the 928 was regarded as a crushingly capable Grand Tourer. This manual transmission 928 has been fitted with a replacement AlliSport radiator and new injectors whilst both the fuel system and brakes have benefited from being overhauled. The vendor informs us it has covered a genuine c.68 000 miles and that it runs well . The car is accompanied by its handbooks service book and assorted invoices and will have a new MoT in time for the sale. Launched in 1980 the Silver Spirit relied heavily upon the underpinnings of its Shadow predecessor prompting Autocar to comment that its raison d etre was more to do with maintaining traditional standards rather than making a spectacular advance . Nevertheless the Spirit was credited with handling and roadholding that were the best yet from Rolls-Royce . Its all-round independent coil-and-wishbone suspension featured automatic olio-pneumatic ride height control to the rear and adjustable dampers at the front. Powered by the ubiquitous 6750cc OHV V8 engine mated to three-speed automatic transmission it was reputedly capable of 120mph and benefited from power assistance to both its disc brakes and steering rack. Importantly this evolutionary design remained faithful to the luxurious ambience of its predecessors using only the finest quality hides carpets chrome fittings and wood veneers for its matchless interior.

The Auctioneer cannot check or verify the authenticity of the chassis or VIN number under which a vehicle is offered but relies on the Seller s description. Buyers should take particular care to verify in advance the authenticity of a vehicle that is claimed to have important racing rallying or ex-works history as it was common in period for a competition vehicle of a single identity to have more than one chassis body or other mechanical components. This may have happened several times both in a vehicle s works career and thereafter in private owner hands. Sometimes works vehicles were fitted with different registration plates so that a vehicle could meet a particular event s start date deadline. These historical factors may lead to there being in existence multiple and competing claimants to the same vehicle identity. 12.2 The Buyer shall be the person making the highest bid at or over Reserve (if any) that is accepted by the Auctioneer and the Contract shall be concluded at the fall of the hammer. The Auctioneer shall have the absolute discretion to settle any dispute related to bidding at the Sale. All sales are deemed not to be sales in the course of a business unless notified to the contrary. 12.3 Every bidder shall be deemed to act as a principal unless the Auctioneer has prior to the auction date acknowledged (either by acceptance of the Bidder s Registration Form which discloses the true principal or otherwise in writing) that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of a disclosed principal. 12.4 The Auctioneer may in its absolute discretion refuse to accept any bid advance the bidding as it may decide withdraw or divide any Lot combine any two or more Lots and in the case of dispute may put up any Lot for auction again. 12.5 A prospective bidder should register his intention to bid for a Lot by completing fully and signing a Bidder s Registration Form prior to executing his bid. If this has not been completed before the fall of the hammer the Buyer shall forthwith complete the Bidder s Registration Form. The Bidder shall also provide photographic identification. Failure to do so shall not invalidate the sale unless the Auctioneer in its absolute discretion so decides. 12.6 Any bid which fails to reach the Reserve may be submitted by the Auctioneer to the Seller and if the Seller accepts that bid the Lot will be deemed to have been sold to the Buyer at the sum bid at the fall of the hammer and the normal Terms and Conditions will apply to that sale. 13.1 Where a Lot is illustrated by a photograph in the case of a vehicle with a registration number visible that number will not be transferred with the vehicle to the Buyer unless the registration particulars appear in the written part of the description and the transfer has been authorised by the Seller. If the vehicle is sold to the Buyer before the formalities of the allocation of a different registration number to that vehicle are completed with the DVLA the Buyer accepts that he will take all steps necessary to co-operate with either the Seller or the Auctioneer to have the number re-transferred to the Seller or as may be and will take no steps to register the vehicle with the number in his name. 13.2 Whilst the interests of prospective Buyers are best served by personal attendance at the Sale the Auctioneers will if so instructed execute bids on their behalf. Neither the Auctioneer nor its Employees or Agents will be responsible for any error or default in doing so or in failing altogether to do so. Where the 149 Auctioneer executes bids on behalf of an absent bidder each Lot will be bought as cheaply as is allowed by other bids and any relevant Reserve. 14. The Buyer shall pay to the Auctioneer in respect of each Lot the Buyer s Commission calculated on the Hammer Price at the stated rates as set out above. 15. Where a Lot is described in the Catalogue or announced at the time of Sale as being subject to VAT on import VAT will be payable in addition to the Hammer Price (which VAT may or may not be refundable by HM Customs & Excise on proof of export). 16.1 Upon the sale of a Lot the Buyer shall 16.2 Unless he has already done so complete a Bidder s Registration Form as in Condition 12.5 above 16.3 Pay to the Auctioneer the total amount due at latest by midday on the day after the Sale notwithstanding that where the Buyer wishes to export the Lot an export licence may be required which must be obtained by the Buyer at his own cost 16.4 Accept that any payments received by the Auctioneer from a Buyer may be applied by the Auctioneer towards any sums owing from that Buyer to the Auctioneer on any account whatsoever without regard to any directions of the Buyer or his agent whether express or implied. 17.1 Until the total amount due has been received by the Auctioneer (a) title in a Lot shall not pass to the Buyer but the risk shall (b) no Lot may be taken away by or on behalf of the Buyer. 17.2 The Buyer shall be responsible for any removal storage and insurance charges and any other Expenses on any Lot not paid for and taken away by 1pm on the day following the day of the sale. 18.1 If a Buyer fails either to pay for or to take away any Lot the Auctioneer may without further notice to the Buyer at its discretion and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies it may have exercise one or more of the following rights or remedies as may be relevant in relation to any and all remedies for non-payment that the Auctioneer may choose to exercise. The Buyer will pay to the Auctioneer all legal and other costs borne by it on a full indemnity basis. 18.2 To charge interest at a rate not exceeding 3% per month over Natwest Bank s base rate on so much of the total amount due as remains unpaid after the date and time referred to in condition 16.3 for the first two months. After that period of time to charge interest at a rate not exceeding 1.75% per month over Natwest Bank s base rate on so much of the total amount due as remains unpaid after the date and time referred to in condition 16.3. 18.3 To issue proceedings against the Buyer for payment of the total amount due and or for damages for breach of contract. If the Seller decides to sell the Lot elsewhere the Auctioneer may proceed against the Buyer for the Commission which it would have earned both from the Seller and the Buyer together with VAT on both had the Buyer paid for the Lot in accordance with these Conditions. 18.4 To rescind the sale of that or any other Lots sold to the same Buyer at this or any other Sale in respect of which title has not passed. 18.5 To resell the Lot or cause it to be resold by public or private sale such that any deficiency in the total amount due resulting from such resale (after giving credit for any payment) together with the full costs incurred in connection with the Lots shall be paid to the Auctioneer by the Buyer any surplus in excess of the Sale Proceeds of that resale shall belong to the Seller. 18.6 To store the Lot at the sole expense of the Buyer and to release the Lot only after payment in full of the total amount due together with the accrued cost of the removal storage and insurance and all other expenses incurred in connection with the Lot. 18.7 To retain that or any other Lot sold to the Buyer at the same or any other auction and to release the same only after payment of the total amount due. 18.8 To apply by way of set-off any Sale Proceeds of any Lot then due or at any time thereafter becoming due to the Buyer towards settlement of the total amount due and expenses and the Auctioneer shall be entitled to a lien on any property of the Buyer which is in the Auctioneer s possession for any purpose. 18.9 To reject or ignore any bids made by or on behalf of the defaulting Buyer at any future sales or insist upon a cash deposit before accepting any bids in future. 19.1 All Lots are offered as seen with all faults and defects without any guarantee or warranty attaching thereto as to condition roadworthiness or otherwise and with all faults and defects whether apparent upon examination or not. 19.2 In any event neither the Seller nor the Auctioneer shall be liable for any indirect or consequential loss whatsoever and the maximum liability of the Auctioneer together with its Employees and Agents in the event of any claim against them arising from the sale of any Lot shall be limited to the Hammer Price plus Buyer s Premium in respect of that Lot. GENERAL CONDITIONS 20. The Auctioneer in all respects acts and will be treated as agent for the Seller (except where the Auctioneer is expressly stated to be selling as principal) and is not responsible for any default by the Seller or the Buyer to the other party. 21. The Auctioneer will not accept any liability for damage sustained to a Lot that is attributable to members of the public or non-Auctioneer operatives during the Sale or any removable items left within lots during the same period. Any claims for damage and or lost items must be submitted to the Auctioneer in writing no later than 3 working days after the date of the Sale and include a valid quote for repair or replacement and digital photographs where applicable. 22. The Auctioneer shall be under no liability for any injury damage or loss sustained by any person while on the Auctioneers premises (including any premises where a sale may be conducted or where a Lot or a part of a Lot may be on view from time to time) except for death or personal injury caused by the negligence of the Auctioneers or its employees and agents in the course of their duties to the Auctioneers. 23. The Auctioneer shall have the right at its sole discretion without assigning any reason to refuse any person admission to its Premises or attendance at any of its Sales or to view any Lot. 24. The Auctioneer shall keep and use any data relating to the Buyer and the Seller in accordance with the provisions of all relevant data protection legislation. The Buyer and the Seller consent to such data being kept and used for appropriate purposes including informing the Buyer and the Seller of any offers or other matters of interest from time to time. 25. The copyright in all written matter and illustrations relating to Lots shall remain at all times the absolute property of the Auctioneer and any person wishing to use such materials or any part of them shall require the prior written consent of the Auctioneer. 26. If any Condition or part of a condition in these Terms shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable the validity or enforceability of the remaining Conditions will not thereby be affected. 27.

All transactions to which these Conditions apply and all matters connected therewith shall also be governed by English Law. Each of the Auctioneer the Seller the Buyer and any bidder hereby submits to non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. 150 Private Sales H&H are fervent believers in the auction process but accept that it does not appeal to every owner or seller of a classic vehicle.
