 Jensen Interceptor series 3 - 1972 440 ci . With an incredible 43900 miles from new and a large history file with some interesting history.

This metallic silver Jensen was supplied new on 4th August by Charles Follett main dealers in the midlands . The stainless foot plates on the car carry their name. It was bought by an international textile dealer in Londons Westend. It was sold from him to a company director of his company . Since then it has only had 3 other owners . Present owner, whom we are selling on behalf of has had for approx for 7 years, where upon it has never seen rain and been used for shows and some local touring. It has lived a truly loved life and recently been kept in a heated and dehumidified garage.

All this recent effort to keep the car immaculate is because the current owner searched high and low for the best he could find and this Jensen was subject to a circa 60k restoration by Marque specialists “Appleyards”. This is detailed in the history file . The History file also contains letters from when the vehicle was almost new with a complaint about the throttle cable snapping and then how in those days an apology and a dealer mechanic was sent to put it right.

The 60k documented restoration by Richard Appleyard was completed circa 2004 / 5. The car has had some more major work since including 4k worth of work on ignition system, converting it to electronic and new steering rack etc etc. The car has been kept up to date although used very little with Mots etc . We are more than happy to re instate another new MOT upon sale , for peace of mind.

The current owner is very proud to confirm the car drives without fault . This Jensen has no body issues or paint issues what so ever. With such low mileage and fantastic history and such an in-depth , quality restoration this is a very desirable Classic . The price is very realistic and maybe even a tad low when we have researched the current market . The interior is faultless and everything works. Engine bay is super clean with no visible leaks at all . The desirable 440 is super strong and maintains excellent old pressure and constant temp once warn. There is a new indoor cover that comes with the car.

Chevrolet Corvette - 1954. America’s 1st true sports car.
Iconic, super rare, 13 year restoration. Now out of recent storage. 7. 5k recently spent with complete gearbox rebuild, Starter and charging system overhaul, complete fuel system rebuild due to fuel degradation including cabrs rebuilt, new fuel pump etc. New battery plus much more. All done as car was stored in a private collection and not used.

This absolutely stunning, very rare and iconic car, known as America’s 1st true production sports convertible, has been restored to concours standard several years ago, over a 13 year period. The ‘54 is within months of the 1st ever Corvette produced in December ‘53. Also with the original all matching numbers, famous 6 cylinder Blue Flame engine. Chevrolet moved onto what is now known as the small block V8 some 12 months later. Only the Corvette had tripple sidedraft carb set up. As such, items like the twin air cleaner set up, which is exclusive to this car. The numbers matching brass serial tags on each carburettor are 100 dollars each!! The original Wonderbar self seeking radio was sent back to the states to be restored to full working order, as there was just one of the very few men in the world willing to do it, this cost a small fortune. Every small detail has been researched and restored to original spec. Hence the 13 year project. The history file contains down to chassis photos and some rare literature. This car has been featured at The NEC on a couple of occasions. Every show this stunning Corvette has been to it has won Best in show, several times over. There are only Three other roadworthy examples known to be in the UK and this is the best by far.. There is so much detail and owner’s information, it is just too much to include in an advert. The car is only driven in dry conditions and drives superb especially now the more recent work has been done. In the USA, 125000 dollar price tags for like for like cars are common place. We are happy to answer sensible questions. We are happy to provide covered transport at cost. Uk. delivery can be arranged, and part exchange is currently considered on this Chevrolet Corvette.

The R230SL set new standards for Mercedes-Benz in terms of dynamics and handling, too. The company was competing in Formula One in conjunction with McLaren at the time and the British company played a hand in helping develop the new SL, which was dynamically leagues ahead of its R129 predecessor. 

2003 MB SL350 with just 39, 700 miles for sale. Excellent condition and service history. MOT valid until 30th March 2023. This car is just gorgeous in metallic black with cream interior - it must have had every extra fitted; analogue TV, mobile phone prep, keyless entry & go - just press the button on the gear knob to start/ stop the engine, heated seats, massage seats, find me / get me home lights, easy entry seat / steering wheel, memory position electric seats, tilting LHS door mirror when reverse engaged, Parking sensors front & rear, electric roof, electric wind break, cream leather, walnut dash, gear shifter and steering wheel, super refined and drives amazingly. Everything works exactly as it should and condition of paint, interior, engine bay, wheels, tyres etc are all excellent.

Regularly serviced and Motd . Last Mot no advisories . Last service the boot struts were also replaced. Recently a dealer heath check was carried out and the front brake pads and the engine battery were replaced.
Mostly main dealer history and of late Merc affiliated independent service.
This 350 SL is right up there with some of the best we have had, Near faultless paint , immaculate interior and drives superb. The colour combo is probably the most desirable and with huge spec this is a great one to own.
Fantastic value of a modern classic.

Truimph TR3A, 1960 in Midnight blue.  Excellent condition.


TR3A 1960. This TR3A had a  rebuild in 2017. Then shortly after this restoration due to illness in 2017 the car was put into storage. The car is Midnight Blue with Tan Hide interior.  It is fitted with new soft top, new stainless steel wire wheels, new tyres, new chrome bumpers(£500), newly covered seats and new side screens. The engine was running poorly after years of no use, so we have sent to a professional engine builder. The engine has had a full rebuild, including pistons, rings, bearings, oil pump, valves, timing gears and chain, waterpump, etc etc . We then while stripped rebuilt the cylinder head with new valves etc. Also we have rebuilt the brakes, renewed some wiring, new gearbox and engine mounts etc . We have really gone to town to give this car another lease of life. This invoice is in the history file and shows approx £9000 spent by us alone. Only test miles done since. A full detailed invoice is in the file. We have also put on all new badges inc a matching Navy/ chrome nose cone badge, new period number plates with stainless surrounds. The Navy paintwork is very good with no rust issues at all. All the chrome work is very good. The hood and side screens are excellent being new. There is a pair of period Lucas spot lamps but these are not yet wired. There is also the addition of a luggage rack which is handy for touring. Part ex welcome for similar standard cars. Trailered transport offered at cost . NB this car before all this work was for sale for £24950, after 9k spent we are seeking only 1k more than its original price.

1962 Renault Dauphine is in first class condition. Very low mileage 30. 000 klm approx 20, 000 miles. 3 speed Ferlec manual transmission making it so easy to drive as makes it semi automatic. A rare factory addition and its so easy with no clutch pedal.. Recently had new brakes all round, tires, shock absorbers, 6v battery, inc isolator switch. Recent engine overhaul including cylinder head and valve work, Now runs lovely and is on the button.

The interior is so of its time and is in excellent condition. Headlining is as new. The deckchair stripe upholstery to the seats and door cards is excellent, Very little wear. The ever flex flooring again is superb. All the Ivory plastic switches and handles etc are excellent. Considering this whole car is super original with no bling chrome add ons etc its in amazing condition.

The exterior is the same , super original and remonstrative of a well looked after low mileage original classic. Yes it has a couple of minor scuffs One being a scratch on drivers side due to an argument with an equally old Jukebox. But make no mistake this car is solid with no rust issues and the Black paintwork shines up a treat. The bright work is all in good shape, only the rear bumper has some pitting and may at some stage want a re-chrome . The boot space upfront is where a Dauphine of this age would have issues if its a bad One , needless to say this One is very good indeed. No nasty patches etc just all original metal and is super clean and houses a new 6 Volt battery. All switches, lights and gauges appear to operate exactly as they should.  Engine and engine bay are very clean. There are no leaks of any fluids to be seen . On the road with its floor electronic gear change its a doddle to drive and performs really well. These Dauphines both here and on the continent much like its predecessor the 4CV are becoming a very rare sight at shows and on the road. Most have either rotted away or sit in private collections gaining in value as they become scarcer. This One should be used and be seen and not become another to sit in a museum. Its mechanically excellent after a fare bit of recent work, together with its originality and quirky interior and features such as the side vents etc its a great car for the shows etc that won’t break the bank. With excellent UK club and parts availability.

The series 3 is the last of the high back winged Alpines and only in production for a shot period , 63-64 . As a result the production run was very short (5983). Most of these went to the states in LHD format . With the series 3 upgrades and low amount of units left in the U. K RHD makes this model the most desirable and collectable Alpine . The features of the series 3 included servo assisted front disc brakes , twin fuel tanks to allow for more boot space, wood veneer dash , Wire wheels (optional), higher horsepower twin carbs engine.

My example for sale has been lovingly restored by a Routes Group enthusiast who really went to town and is a credit to him. This original Series 3 is of show standard, drives superb and is very clean underneath and in the engine bay having had a bare metal respray .

Work included:
Bare metal respray in its original colour of metallic Harvest Gold .
Full interior including new dash veneer , all new black with gold piping seats and door cards etc as per original .
New mohair convertible roof , new front screen and side glass, new or re-chromed chrome everywhere including bumpers.
Fantastic short number plate .
More recently brand new chrome wire wheels and new radials.
Cylinder head stripped and rebuilt , new dynamo, starter motor , electronic distributor , fuel system front to back including restoring the very rare original twin carb air cleaner . New stainless exhaust , steering components replaced , Brake system overhaul with new hoses, brake pipes, caliper rebuilds, wheel cylinders , master cylinder the list goes on and on .

In summary this rare series 3 Alpine is ready to go, ideal for touring or taking to shows etc

While the MGB enjoyed huge success as the British Sports car of the time, there’s a lesser known, somewhat prettier little car that took its styling cues from the American tastes of the time. While it never sold in the numbers enjoyed by MG, its more luxurious interior and sharp styling made it way cooler. So cool in fact that James Bond had to have one in his first movie, Dr. No. 
Produced from 1959 and 1968 in five series, this is the Series III, which had some useful upgrades over previous models including walnut dash and more usable boot space. Crucially, it retained its classic tail fins and with less than 6, 000 produced, most of which went across the pond as left-hand drives, is now considered the most desirable of the Alpines.  It looks fantastic from every angle and at any distance. 

Averaging about 50 miles a year for the last five years, it has rarely left the garage and as such, now needs to find a new home and owner that will grant it some long awaited open road mileage.
