FIAT 500 F-1967-round speedo model- Restored approx 4 years ago in Italy and recently imported. Ready to go with uk registration and a recent service. The combination of Baby Blue and red and cream interior is a favourite with most people looking for a nice early round speedo model. The body and paintwork are very good indeed.We have pics of the body as just a bare shell showing extent of restoration. The fold back roof fabric and frame is new.The bumpers are excellent.The wiper arms are new stainless ones. The front badge is new.

The interior is again very good with the iconic and mush sort after round speedo and the original steering wheel. for the large part the Red and Cream interior remains original having had the front seats recovered and the door panels have also been replaced with original new door cards. The wheels have been repainted in an original buttermilk colour  with new stainless centres. The correct tyres are all in very good condition. The front boot compartment is very clean indeed and houses the original spare and original jack etc.

Engine and engine bay are very clean and testament to a very well maintained and low mileage car. Though the 43000km cant be verified having had so many 500s it certainly feels and drives and runs like a very low mileage car.

Car is on the button and ready to go even down to the period tin plates just been put on. Delivery can be arranged.

2004 MGTF.  Immaculate.


MGTF -2004- Incredible. Showing having covered just 7700 miles from new!. With the original owner from new, having for the first 14 years of its life.  This immaculate MGTF has had a pampered, and well cared for life. The 2 subsequent owners who only covered a very small amount of miles in the last 3 years, also maintained to a very high level.  Never used in adverse weather, and kept garaged at all times.  Recent work, some 700 miles ago, included replacement of water pump, timing belt, and tensioner.  Having showing done such little mileage, equivalent to 6 months average mileage, the car presents in showroom condition.  Also performs and handles as such too.  This MGTF comes with a half tonneau cover for when the roof is down, and original MG over-mats. The only non standard extra on the interior, is a Pioneer stereo head unit. The car retains all original paint and glass etc. which is totally scratch free. The car also retains it’s original dealer number plates from Rycar, in Cardiff.  Even the dealer tax disc holder is in place. The original handbooks are in the file, along with a full and clean HPI report, which also includes mileage verification.

This very popular MG has to be ‘one of the best’, low owner, and lowest mileage examples on the market!

Engine Chevy LS3.
Manual/Automatic. Manual.
Special features.  Absolutely stunning!.






AK 427 Cobra. 2nd generation with new 440 BHP Chevy LS3. 90 percent factory build.  Being a classic dealer of many years with an excellent reputation, this sale is for my own car. When searching for one I only wanted the standards of AK and wanted the lovely LS3 fitted.  My Cobra has everything I wanted. The Colour is beautiful, the interior is the same.  Wheel and tyre set up are exactly what I desired, and the engine and 5 speed transmission is fantastic and quick.

Details are as follows:
2nd Gen AK chassis built 2013.
18 inch Halibrand replicas with hidden wheel nuts and 3 eared alloy spinners.
Suspension is XJ40 with adjustable Gaz Shocks.
Brakes are XJ40 with out-bored discs and AK handbrake set up. Handbrake lever is “on the fly” so out of the way.
Gearbox is a 5 speed Tremec new when built with twin clutch plates for lighter and smother clutch control. Drive train continues into a rebuilt XJ40 Diff.
Engine is a brand new(not recon) when built Chevy LS3.If you’ve had small blocks before with the cast iron block etc this is so far advanced giving 440BHP very smoothly. All ali engine which is bullet proof as shown in all late Corvettes etc. The ECU unit is an upgraded Omex system. The engine bay is dressed in polish stainless.   Aluminium radiator and silicone hoses.
Power steering is fitted, being precise, and easy to use.


The sound is awesome, whether stationary, or flying along. Twin 7 inch stainless side pipes, with catalytic converters, and stainless escutcheon, to protect body work.
Body work is all factory AK, and is painted in MG Trophy metallic Blue. With a little twist to the standard Cobra stripes with a nod to the racing history of Caroll Shelby.  Grand Tour stiping to one wing.  All livery is painted on not stickers. Stainless stone guards. Bonnet and boot have gas struts. Twin locks on the bonnet. Triple nose vents and full “open mouth “ radiator opening.
Full wet weather kit, including foldable roof, side screens and full tonneau all of which fit in the boot.
All bright work is as new, recently changed the stainless bumper overiders from the quick change jack lift type to old school overiders. Gives a real touring car look, I feel.
Boot is fully carpeted, and houses a new battery with isolator.
Triple stainless wipers, double stainless roll bar hoops. A nice touch, not seen that often is Double Gt style fuel fillers, which both feed into a single tank, looks great and handy when pulling upto the pumps.
The interior is brilliant. Plenty of legroom in an AK, unlike so many other builds.   Newly fitted period Moto Lita wheel with polished hornpush etc. 4 point Willans harness. All gauges are Smiths with Blue back lighting.
Comes with a long MOT, private Cobra registration number, with new tin period plates.
In Summary, in my opinion, one of the nicest 427 Cobras around.  Ninety percent factory built, with everything you could want, and all at the right price. Reason for sale is I have my eye on the ultimate hot-rod which is twice the price, so this has to go first.

Chevrolet Corvette - 1954.  America’s 1st true sportscar. Concours example.

Iconic, super rare, 13 year restoration.


With great pleasure, we have been permitted exclusive access to a large privately owned collection of classic cars, to sell on the owner’s behalf.  If others sell, this may be taken off sale.

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, if you can find one, commands prices of circa 5000 dollars. 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. In recent years the car has been maintained by a well known Corvette guru, who has been the custodian of this special car over the last several years. In return for his care by way of a thank you, he took to several shows including the NEC. Every show this stunning Corvette won Best in show, several times over. There are only two other examples known to be in the UK. There is so much detail and owner’s information, it is just too much to include in an advert. The car is driven in dry conditions and drives superb. We request only serious enquiries, please. We are happy to answer sensible questions.       We are happy to  provide covered transport at cost. The Corvette ‘guru’ as mentioned above,  would be pleased to provide further information also, as he is very well acquainted with this absolutely ‘take your breath away’ Corvette!

Mini Cooper Sport – low mileage.  Superb condition.



Having devised the iconic original back in the early 1960s, John Cooper sold his own modified Minis under the 'Mini Cooper' name from the mid-1980s before Rover's acquisition of the rights to the name made it possible to officially re-launch the model in September 1990. The new Mini Cooper was based on the Mini 30, the most luxuriously equipped Limited Edition Mini to date, but fitted with the 1,275cc engine rather than the 30's 998cc unit. What would turn out to be the final Mini version - the Mark 7 - arrived in 1996. Changes included twin-point fuel injection, higher final drive gearing, driver's airbag, side impact beams, additional sound insulation, improved front seats, front-mounted radiator and a 'Sports Pack' option. Part of a factory initiative intended to encourage customers to personalise their Minis, the Sports Pack comprised 13"x6" Minilite-style alloy wheels, extended wheel arches, Koni dampers, four auxiliary front lights, large-bore exhaust tailpipe and extra instruments.Mini Cooper Sports pack in the classic deep Red with White cap, John Cooper bonnet stripes and mirrors. Only 32000 miles from new and immaculate condition cosmetically and mechanically really make this little Cooper stand out .
The deep Red paintwork is truly excellent with no blemishes at all. The Cooper stripes and all the brightwork are as new. The sport extras like stainless wipers etc are again as new.

The half leather interior is again immaculate and remonstrative of such a low mileage car. Only approx. 1500 miles covered in last 10 years and always garaged. The Walnut dash, door cappings and interior furniture are all A!. The original alloy minilite style wheels are unmarked and present as new. These are shod with Yokohama radials all round,175/50/R13 which have seen very little use . Underneath my Mini is again superb. The inner wheels arches and sills are body color and there is a light coating of wax oil applied in approx. 2016. The rear sub-frame was replaced at this time too and remains immaculate.

To conclude this is a superb very low mileage example with the sports pack in immaculate condition everywhere with mechanics to match. In the highly sort after deep Red.

VW Beetle-1962- Imported from Sweden.  A beautiful example ready to show and drive. This wonderful Beetle stands out from the rest as an early example with the flat screen, sloping headlights, popes nose rear deck lid etc. It also stands out due to its condition which is fantastic. Finished in Volkswagen Gulf Blue (code L390), the paintwork boasts a pleasing uniform finish and all panels have a deep shine. The gaps are excellent. Structurally excellent, this Beetle has been preserved with wax-oil and is ready for summer outings and shows. This Beetle boasts a lot if not all the features of early beetles and just looks superb. Its cool original look with a touch of the Cal look with its stance and wheels etc make for a great combination.

The Ivory leatherette upholstery to the interior is spotlessly clean and the common trend for major interior modification has been thankfully avoided. The door cards and headlining are excellent.   All interior catches and controls are correct and operate well, although the original and optional push button radio is not connected. The air-cooled rear mounted engine with correct electric automatic choke is housed in a clean engine bay.

The original spare wheel is housed in a structurally solid under bonnet wheel well.   A professionally lowered suspension set up along with the upgrade wheels create the ultimate California ‘Cal Look’. This 1962 registered Beetle was built in July 1961 in Germany and arrived in the UK in 2008 after a long period in Sweden. The history file contains the original Volkswagen handbook and some previous MOT certificates since its arrival in the U.K. There is substantial documentation from the vehicles period in Sweden in the form of the Swedish MOT equilvalent, the Besiktningsresultat or ‘Inspection Results’ with several certificates dating back to the late 1980’s. Representing a mechanically superb and very well cared for example, this Beetle is wanting for nothing and is absolutely ready for the hugely popular classic VW scene.

New heater channels were done at this time. completed at that time:  Full window out respray and 6 volt to 12 volt conversion. New TMI headlining, seat covers and carpets. New BRM wheels. MWS Lowered-beam adjusters in front, turned splines at the back. Brakes fully rebuilt inc all new lines, wheel cylinders, etc 1641TP engine fitted inc. a top end rebuild with addition of twin 40 carbs, 009 dizzy. ported and flowed heads and inlet manifold. Lightened flywheel. Alternator conversion, painted tinware.


This early example has been well cared for and represents excellent value. Ticks the boxes for mechanics, interior, exterior, and is super cool.

Morris Cowley Bullnose open top tourer - beautiful!

This Bullnose is absolutely charming and presents very well. Up there with some of the best. The 4 seat open top tourer is the variant of this splendid car to have. The mechanics are excellent and the car starts 1st time with no problem. The Dynastart has had a One Thousand pound rebuild .One of the few problematic issues well taken care of. The Morris is excellent underneath and the engine/engine bay is very clean. The car drives very well and has been used for high days and shows/events. The previous long term owner who was known to me was a true enthusiast.  This gent has sadly passed away.

This quintessential English tourer is cosmetically superb and is full of period character. The original colour paint is excellent as is the fully retractable hood and clip out side screens.  The period features include; Luggage rack, Brass fire extinguisher, Lucas Brass horn with bakelite hornpush, badge bar with period badges, Brass firewall mounted grease gun, original two wheel warning badge, Brass dash mounted ashtray ( handy when the roof is down! )  As the 23 Bullnose has a tilt split front screen there is an original slide along wiper, of which i have never seen this accessory before.  The original wheels have all been refurbished and present like new, these are shod with period tyres that have not done many miles, this includes the side mount spare.  The Brass horn on the side is an original Lucas one and is mounted on the wooden tool box which houses an original jack. The interior is all excellent with its Crocodile textured finish. Many period accessories on the dash really give this car character.

This open top tourer is very reliable and an ex show winner. Very useable vintage car of 96 years old. AMAZING !!

MGR V8.  1994, Rare.  Very low mileage stunner!


MGR V8-1994- Imported back to the UK in 2007 and only 2 owners since. Last owner 7 years.  History shows this superb example had covered 13000 kilometres when converted over to a legal MPH speedo, which now shows circa 10k miles. Incredible approx 18500 miles covered from new. This is exemplary in its overall condition and the way it handles on the road. Both of which are excellent.

The Oxford Blue (pearlescent) is a rare colour with only some 214 made for export in this colour.   In my opinion, for what it’s worth, this is the best colour this car is available in. The bodywork and paintwork are fantastic and the pearl Blue has a deep rich shine. There is a very rare factory option of front wing “eyebrows” which just add to the really nice body lines. The original diamond polished alloy wheels are 1st class. There is no lacquer lift or scuffs. They are all shod with matching Bridgestone tires which have seen little use.

The boot area is very clean and tidy. Fully carpeted including a carpeted cover for the spare wheel.  All the factory original equipment is present including the tool kit roll and wheel chocks etc. The interior again is very good indeed and had little wear as you would expect from a super low mileage car. The walnut dash is excellent. All the gauges are functioning correctly. The original leather gear knob has been replaced with a matching walnut One, but the original comes with the car. There is a stack CD stereo system in the boot all going thru the original speakers.

On the road the sound is brilliant through its full stainless exhaust. The engine is running spot on. Having had a pampered life, with regular servicing, and having such low miles.  A new MOT will be put on upon sale, for peace of mind. The Five speed gearbox is precise and smooth.  Low mileage, very good examples, in this rare colour option, certainly  don’t come around too often, and it’s a pleasure to offer this stunner for sale.

1996 MGF. 1.8i Immaculate 2 owners from new with an incredible 10K miles from new .  This is a truly spectacular example. Only 2 owners from new.

The original invoice is in the history file, showing its 1st long term owner who purchased the car in August 1996. The owner was then given a job abroad and the car was put into quality storage between 1999-2006.  Only 5000 miles covered in the first ten years of life. Between 2006 and 2016 the car continued to have a pampered life being kept in a heated garage. Servicing was carried out in this time and is recorded in the file to confirm mileage.  The second owner, at approx 9000 miles, put on new tyres, and had a full service, and replaced the timing belt and water pump.

The car is highly original. The paintwork which is all original having never had any repairs is very good indeed. For a twenty year old car, that has never had any paintwork its brilliant .The interior again is as it left the factory to be expected of a car that hasn’t even done an average one years mileage. The bootspace again as new. Under bonnet is also like new  As the photographs show, you can still see original Factory marks on things like the brake lines. The original factory alloys are un marked and as far as the previous owners confirm have never been refurbed.  The car’s mechanics are A1. Again, as would be expected from such a quality MG.

If you are looking for a super original un restored low owner, extremely low mileage MGF that can only go up in value, then this car could be for you .

Fiat 850 Sport Spyder - 1971.


This Bertone design iconic Italian sports car is just fab.  Imported just over 3 years ago from Europe, this 850 sport underwent some major restoration work around this time and has done almost zero miles since.  Works included full repaint in White, new convertible hood, new carpets, wheel refurbishment, new tyres, engine and gearbox rebuild. Though not documented, obviously a small fortune was spent. After over 3 years since restoration work the car is fresh and items replaced are still as new. Paint and bodywork are virtually faultless, and showroom condition. The interior is excellent and show very little wear at all. The 5 spoke alloys with Abarth centres have been refurbished and look as new. Shod with quality radials that have done next to no mileage.  The engine sounds superb, and the car handles exactly as it should. Though exempt I am happy to put on a fresh MOT upon sale for peace of mind if required. Fully UK registered with age related number and period pressed plates. An 850 Sport Spider is becoming hard to find, especially in this condition here, and in Europe.  Nice examples are circa 20k Euros. There are examples in the U.S, but with rubber over-riders and automatic gearboxes, they are less desirable. If you looking for something a bit different in exceptional condition then you may have just found it.  Very inexpensive to run and loads of fun and rare.

Fiat Topolino Belvedere-1954. The much loved Topolino was manufactured from the late Thirties and took a twist in the early Fifties to appease the farming/working and rural community. The station wagon version was created. With its easy access fold back door, low floor and fold flat back seats it made a very useable small vehicle. This version is called a “Metalica”. The very early version had timber panels .There are only a handful of these left as they rotted. This 1954 is still a very rare car and creates a lot of conversation at shows etc.   Fully restored in Italy and recently imported the condition is 1st class. The car is fully registered and ready to go.

The Bodywork and paintwork are excellent. The panel gaps are very good and the car is super straight. The original colour scheme paintwork is very good indeed. The chrome is either new or been re chromed. On sunny days there is the full length fold back roof and sliding windows front and rear.  The interior is again as new. With its original cockpit style bucket seats, fold flat rear bench seat its very useable. It is surprisingly roomy inside. The period dash clocks all appear to be functioning correctly. The unique ignition key is fab. Just push the pin style key into the hole in the dash and that’s ignition on. The rear boot compartment area is A1 and houses the spare wheel. The fold flat option is a great asset for taking luggage, picnic or carrying the dog for trips away its so useable.  Up front the quirky styling gives the Topolino its name . In Italian Topolino means “little Mouse”. Under the bonnet is a small aluminium 4 cyl engine which really does run like a clock. The engine and engine bay are super clean and detailed and a definite candidate for having the bonnet up at shows, as is a huge talking point for any classic enthusiast. The Two tanks are for fuel and water/coolant.

If your looking for something very rare, different from the rest, easy to drive and maintain, a huge talking point, full of character classic car then this could be for you.
