CHEVROLET BELAIR SEDAN – 1957.  SHOW STANDARD.  FORTUNES SPENT.

 

957 Chevrolet Belair Sedan. Possibly one of the best examples for sale in the UK.  This is show standard/winning. Imported from a lady in Virginia back in the late 80s with circa 60k miles from new. After a few UK owners in 1999 a huge restoration was started. This is mostly documented and photographed in the massive history file. Allegedly some 80,000 pounds was spent. Seeing the car being stripped to a bare chassis then every component restored or replaced with quality parts. The history file backs this figure up. Testament to the quality and depth of this restoration this iconic Belair is still good enough to win shows. More recent history take the car even further after being advertised 3 years ago at 29500 the advert was incorrect in its description stating the car had power steering, it didn’t . But it has now. It stated it had a new 4BBL Holley and ali manifold, it didn’t. But it has now. It also 18 months ago had a factory blue print crate engine replacing the low power 283ci with the 350ci. Again all documented. New ancillaries were also fitted including ali rocker covers, flex fan, new fuel pump, chrome air cleaner etc etc. The Belair has electronic ignition too for piece of mind.  Also recently the whole wiper assembly has been replaced new with a quality 2 speed factory correct system which wasn’t cheap.
 

Everything on this car is just brilliant, the two tone metallic paint, the glass looks to be all replaced not a scratch in sight. All the stainless and chrome trim is as new. The wheels, tires, Rally trims are all as new. The steering, suspension, all as new. The whole of the interior is as new and factory correct with the addition of the floor mats and the chrome tissue holder.
 

 

 

Many ask about the Gold badging. This was a cost factory option when the car was new.
As you would expect the car starts 1st time every time . On the road it not only drives great and tight it goes very well thanks to the addition of a new small block and 4bbl Holley set up.   I have known this car for some time and very proud to now have it for sale. I am convinced 1st serious person to see it will buy it.

FORD FIESTA XR2, 1988.  NICE ORIGINAL CONDITION.

1988 MK2 Ford Fiesta XR2 in White. With only 77k miles on the clock. confirmed by MOT history and paperwork in the file. Excellent condition for a car that has not had a complete restoration . The original pepperpot alloys are in excellent condition .The spare is also excellent with original jack etc housed in the boot. The interior is again excellent with very little wear and tear remonstrative of its very low mileage and very little use. Indeed the car has only covered some 12 k miles in the past 15years. .There are numerous bills for services, and the car still has its original Ford Service book. Underneath the car is again excellent a light coating of Waxoil has been applied recently to preserve for many years to come .
 

The engine bay is very clean indeed and appears to be completely original and stock as they should be. Mechanically excellent .A brand new MOT has just been done. On the road the car drives exactly as it should and there are no issues or noises etc that need addressing

FORD FIESTA 1.6 XR2, 1989.  CONCOURS RESTORATION.

 

1989 Ford XR2. Possibly the best currently for sale in the Uk . Recent awards at Fordfest and another best of show.  Full restoration to concours standards.
 

The bodywork/paintwork is arrow straight and is painted in its original Mercury Grey. All original decals re applied. The plastic trim is as new. The light lenses and glass are free from any scratches etc and again as new. When doing a car to this standard no expense is spared as can be seen underneath. This is as it left the factory in 1989. Everything is new or reconditioned to new standard. Even down to the Blue factory dots of paint when being checked. The engine and engine bay are the same. Where possible everything is original Ford/Motorcraft inc plug leads, hoses etc. The car has covered circa 70k miles which is evident when driven as drives like a new one. Having had a fortune spent it presents in a condition I think is possibly the best on the market.  It has a factory sunroof which again is as new.
 

The interior is a step back in time . If you were to go to a Ford dealer in 1989 to buy a new one that’s what it feels like. Amazing !  The Pepper pot alloy wheels are totally unmarked and are factory original color. They are shod with a full matching set of almost new Yokohama radials.
 

If you are looking for a mint example to re live your youth then you’ve found it . I am sure this car if taken to more shows as has only been to Two will continue to take prizes. Any Ford dealerships out there I now have an XR3i also possibly the best there is of the same year.

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.

AK 427 COBRA-440 BHP CHEVY LS3- 2ND GEN - AWESOME,  JUST 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.

 

Part exchange for similar, is considered.  transport arranged, serious enquiries only.

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!

MGF, 2001.  LOW MILEAGE, EXCELLENT EXAMPLE.

 

MGF- 2001- After long term ownership of approx 12 years our customer decided to move to an MGB. We were very pleased to take his much cherished MGF in part exchange. Only 44500 miles from new .Every MOT from new is in the substantial history file. There are many receipts showing a well loved car. Cam belt and waterpump done recently by marque specialist . The headgasket and seals were done by MG dealer.
 

Excellent value for money for someone wanting just to have some fun with classic cars or as is very common someone to own as a second car to use when their main normally more expensive car is off the road.  My example is just the ticket. Low mileage pampered car in what is considered one of the best colors, (paint code JRJ).
 

Lots of nice factory extras including ,optional factory hardtop color matched in excellent condition, Wind deflector, Factory CD player, chrome side grilles, electric door mirrors, rear window heater, air conditioning which has recently been re gassed and works very well, central locking ,electric windows.
 

The metallic paintwork is very good. All panels are factory original with no blemishes. The fabric fold down hood is excellent and seen little use. The original 6 spoke alloys are excellent and are shod with quality radials which again have had little wear. The interior is all factory original and again is in excellent shape .


When you drive the MGF you realize why so many people have them as a starter classic or as a second classic to use. They are great fun on the road and very easy to drive and maintain. Very inexpensive to buy and run and nice low owner, low mileage ones with good history values are creeping northwards. A full years MOT has just been done.

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.

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 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.

Car had a full body off paintjob done approx. 7 years ago and has stood the test of time very well, being garaged since and only used in non inclement weather. 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.

Mgtd-1952- Original RHD which has over the years had extensive restoration work, with much of it documented, with some extensive invoices. There are a lot of previous mots and original manuals too in the file.


The deep Red paintwork is excellent and has been on there along time, (2004). All the chromework is again 1st class with no signs of degradation.

The engine and engine bay are show worthy. Having been part of the complete rebuild in 2004 along with the 4 speed gearbox. The exhaust manifold has been vitrous enameled in Black, expensive but nice to see. This leads onto a full stainless exhaust.

 

In summary this is a superb example of this sort after marque and is of show standard.

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 – EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION.

 

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.

FORD FIESTA XR2.  IMMACULATE SURVIVOR, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.

Ford Xr2 -1983- !st registered on the day the new “A” plate came out, 1st August 1983 in Leicester. Only 5 owners from new and a very low 74k miles. Spent some of its time more recently in Northern Ireland as many retro Fords did. Back to the mainland in 2016/17. Approx 67500 miles on the clock at this time so a mere 7500 miles done in the last 4 years. The car is still currently Motd. The original metallic Silver is in excellent condition as are all the original decals. All rubber weather seals are again excellent. All the glass and lenses look to be factory original . The Black plastic trim is all excellent. This is a Non Sunroof model. The original pepper pot wheels are all A1 including the spare. They are shod with quality matching radials which have not seen a lot of use.
 

The interior can be described as timewarp. With its original Ford radio, all original switches etc its really does transport you back to the 80s. There is no aftermarket bolt ons it is as it left the factory. The carpets and upholstery is all original and there is no damage or stains etc. The whole of the interior including the rear parcel shelf etc looks to be all original.
The previous owner expressed the car to his knowledge hasn’t seen rain for a long time . It was used to take to a few shows including a few Ford only gatherings. Last year it won a “Best in Show” award. Its originality is quite amazing and is a true survivor.


Becoming very hard to find in this condition this iconic classic of the 80s’ is a true find and represents great value for money.
