1972 Triumph Spitfire in excellent condition both cosmetically and mechanically, with some nice upgrades for modern motoring. Having come from the previous owner who was an owners club member this Spitfire is in excellent shape ready for many years of Classic ownership. Whether to do shows or to drive on tours etc this Spitfire will do both with ease.

Several sensible upgrades include stainless exhaust system, Kenlowe thermostatic fan, electronic ignition, vented and cross drilled front discs, Waxoil type treatment throughout. The Minilite type wheels have had a recent refurb and have been re painted and the rim diamond polished and are as new and shod with almost new full matching radials. This included the spare. The spare is housed in a fully carpeted boot space with jack and brace. The paintwork is excellent. there are no rust issues anywhere. There are photos in the large history file of the car at bare shell stage, with new panels such as sills etc being applied. Since this time the car received a rust treatment which is still soft to the touch with your fingernail. This has preserved not only underneath but the underside of bonnet and inner wings etc.

The interior is immaculate again having had money spent during restoration and since. There is an aftermarket radio and speaker installed these can of course be removed easily should something else be required. There is the half tonneau to cover the roof once down to maintain the neat lines. All the brightwork is very good and there is addition of sports door mirrors.

The history file is extensive with many invoices a large part of which are around 2002-2004. Many past mots. Recent service invoice from classic specialists and photos showing bare shell strip down etc. This lovely spitfire was built to use and take to shows and is ready to go for the new owner. It starts 1st time every time and zips around the roads with ease, on the faster roads the overdrive comes into play in 3rd and 4th and again makes it very useful in todays traffic. Will run on unleaded fuel as headwork has been done.

In summary a great little example of this 70s sportscar ready to enjoy.

All mots history and numerous receipts etc and some original sales literature etc is all in the file and shows the mileage to be correct.

Previous owner really loved his fords and also went to town on this Xr3I. Having had a full respray in original diamond White, the bodywork is excellent. At the same time all the trims were replaced and the oem decals. A new roof was obtained and fitted. This is claret Red and looks brilliant up or down . There is a tonneau cover too. All the glass and light lenses etc are excellent and scratch free. The original Cosworth cross lattice wheels are all immaculate having had a recent complete refurb, inc the spare .

The interior is immaculate with no signs of wear or damage. The original radio all works fine and the radio manual with its code is in the file. Even the digital clock works.

To summarise this is a low mileage, low owner icon of the 80s. With a large history file containing every mot, fully stamped service book from new , every tax disc etc etc. Immaculately presented with much recent expenditure from enthusiast previous owner.

These special edition examples are all Balmoral Green and come loaded with every extra available at the time. It is rare to find nice ones and with everything working as it should. Having just sold one very quickly and using One on a 1300 mile tour of the Highlands we went on the hunt for another, we were so impressed in the vehicle.
The spec is amazing with electric seats, heated seats, air ride suspension , full leather, walnut trim, electric sunroof, air con, light guards, tinted glass, wind deflectors, mode adjustable auto gearbox, the list goes on and on.

The bodywork is superb. There are no issues at all. The 18 inch alloys are all A1 condition and are shod with brand new correct spec tyres that have done 3 miles. This includes the spare . A new Mot has just been done and it passed with not a single advisory. In our opinion for the price which will only increase this rare model is one of the best value for money classics money can buy.

Jaguar XJS Convertible 1988. Massive history file from new with many receipts. This file confirms not only the very low mileage of circa 74k miles but also confirms this has always been a Nottingham car with great history and stories all contained in the file. Supplied by Mann Egerton of Derby Road Nottingham( Jaguar and Rolls Royce Dealership). Supplied to a well known family in the Midlands A. W Lymn. As prestigious Funeral directors the maintenance of any vehicle in their possession was second to none. This car was owned by a senior member of the family who after owning it for two years changed the colour from its original Blue to a more apt Red as she thought a sports car should be. This was her Saturday/ Sunday car as was maintained to a high standard. After selling the XJS to a family friend it was then returned to the said lady on her Birthday as a birthday surprise party once again gleaming in Red. So a super low mileage car with excellent full history and low ownership and local history.

To present day. Although the paint and and bodywork were excellent the Sportscar Red not having a personal memory for us did not look right with a Blue roof and Blue interior. So with some research we have had it professionally re-painted back to its original colour. With its Silver stripe decals too. We have kept before photos too for the file. The original lattice wheels have had a refurb and are shod with quality radials. On the road the car handles fantastically as you would expect from a low mileage V12. The turbo 400 Auto box is seamless in its change thru the gears. We have put on a full years MOT which it passed with no advisories. Comes with Tonneau cover and indoor car cover and original tools.

To Summarise. Low Miles, Low owners, great local history from new, Huge history file from new, New paint back to its original colour.

New stainless wheel trims. New stainless luggage rack with period luggage.

Renault 4cv-1950- Imported into the UK in 2004 with a collection from a motor museum in Holland with a few other similar vehicles. Sold by Bonhams at Beaulieu. Thereafter the owner took it from a museum quality car that had stood indoors being admired to a restored example. New paint in original colour to replace the faded paint. The primrose Yellow colour really does suit this car. The paint and bodywork remain in fantastic condition. With the Art Deco styled grilles and the unusual shape floor pan and suicide opening doors the look and stance are to die for . 1950 !!! amazing !

The Two piece wheels colour coded are shod with fairly new Michelin radials which have done very few miles. The Renault 4cv was used very successfully on the rally circuit. From the wide wheel and squat stance you can see why.

Interior has had a full refurbish, including headlining. The iconic early metal dash is just awesome and so of its time. This is a very early one as production didn't really start till 1948. The Renault unsurprisingly runs fantastic on the road and benefits from recently having an electronic distributor fitted. original is with the car too.

These 4CV s are now bringing very strong money all over Europe with nice examples being 15-20k regularly. They are different and much admired with very good spares availability and a very helpful club here in there UK. My example is polished and ready to go at a price that personally I think is way too low. They are now very hard to find nice ones and it won't get any easier. Most are now returning to places like Holland once again.

Buick 35 Open top Tourer-1928.

Step back to the roaring Twenties, nearly 100 years since the manufacture of this wonderful machine. An open tourer was a car to be seen in and remains that way today. Original RHD, made in USA for New Zealand.  In terms of pre war vehicles this is easy to start, maintain and drive. Hence in a previous life was owned by a professional wedding company here in the U.K. As such was maintained to a high standard. We have a lot of MOTs in the file showing the car was actually used not stuck in a museum.  An electric fuel pump and filter has recently been installed for reliability. Indicators have also been installed with period fittings.


The paintwork is very good. Upon purchase we returned the Buick to original Two tone. We stripped and removed all panels and painted them period Chocolate Brown to co-ordinate with the Cream and match the roof and sidescreens. The large fold down roof and all removable sidescreens are in very good condition. We repainted the spare wheel carrier and re installed it, completing the picture by mounting the brake light and period registration plate. The original wooden wheels are all in excellent shape.

The Tan interior is very good with some very nice period features. The original wooden steering wheel is so of its era. We have lifted the carpets front and rear and using them as a pattern to have new ones made. This will enhance the interior fully. The original fold out windscreen all works perfectly and a period style electric single wiper motor has been installed.

This is a true 1920s Gatsby style classic car under a 20k budget. Great for shows, Weddings, Film hire, proms etc. Or to simply enjoy with something different.
