1967 Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII

1967 Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII

Lot # 54923 (Sale Order: 1 of 28)

- Original RHD UK supplied example with 62,500 recorded miles - Re-painted in 2013, over-drive equipped and known ownership from new - Overhauled carburettors last year, MOT'd to July 2018 and ready to be enjoyed Donald Healey's eponymous company built a prototype two-seater sports car for display at the 1952 London Motor Show that not only impressed the public, but also so excited Austin's Managing Director, Leonard Lord, that he struck a deal to build the car in volume at Longbridge. The newcomer was renamed the Austin-Healey 100 and the rest, as they say, is history. The 'Big' Healey enjoyed steady development with the four cylinder cars giving way to the 100-Six of 1956, which was replaced by the first of the 3000s in 1959. The final version was the 3000 MKIII which was launched in October 1963 and mildly upgraded (Phase 2) in May the following year. The most powerful and luxurious of all the models, it had a lively performance courtesy of its 150bhp straight-six engine and featured such niceties as wind-up windows and a walnut veneer facia. 3000 production closed at the end of 1967 after 42,926 had been made, 17,712 of which were MKIIIs. As one of the last of the line, the 3000 offered is a desirable home market MKIII Phase 2 model. Its supporting paperwork confirms it was built on January 15, 1967 and delivered new the following month to Martins Caravan Co. of Exeter. Over the years the body which was originally finished in Beige was changed to Red and Black before receiving its current hue of British Racing Green in 2013 - it is matched to Black interior trim. The SU carburettors were overhauled last year and 'JTT 673E' is now being offered complete with new hood, tonneau cover, a spare set of five wire wheels, Heritage Certificate, original handbook and sales brochure, details of all past owners, tax discs and MOT certificates (including one valid to July 2018) and an assortment of spares. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1938 MG TA

1938 MG TA

Lot # 55170 (Sale Order: 2 of 28)

- Restored in 1980s and nicely mellowed with wonderful patina - Original registration number and buff logbook - History file including invoices and photos of the restoration Announced in 1936, the TA established the famous T-Series pedigree which would persist until the mid-1950s. Designed around a simple new ladder-type chassis frame, with beam axles and front and rear, allied to ultra-stiff leaf springs, the newcomer was powered by an overhead-valve engine allied to part-synchromesh four-speed manual transmission. 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. First registered on 6th April 1938 and understood to retain its original registration number, GRE 318 was restored during the 1980s and has been in the current ownership since 2005. Now finished in red with a lovely patina to the red leather seats, the car has been used sparingly by the vendor, mainly attending various shows around the country. Accompanied by a continuation buff logbook dating from 1960, Swansea V5C, assorted expired MoTs, invoices and restoration photographs, the most recent invoice on file relates to replacement of the master cylinder and front wheel brake cylinders in May 2017. Now only being offered for sale to assist with a family member's house purchase, this lovely TA is described as a "good useable example" with "very good" bodywork, engine, gearbox and interior and "good" paint.

1970 Jaguar E-Type Series III 4.2 2+2

1970 Jaguar E-Type Series III 4.2 2+2

Lot # 55177 (Sale Order: 3 of 28)

- Chassis Number One and Body Number One - The first left-hand drive Series III 2+2-seater made and the only example fitted with a 4.2-litre XK engine - Referred to by Jaguar Enthusiast magazine as 'A Ghost of an E-Type' and 'the one missing link' (August 2017 issue) - Offered from the collection of music producer Pete Waterman and in his care since the late 1980s. 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 straight-six 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. I wrote to Mr Bob Lewis at Jaguar Service, Radford who responded to me through Cindt Greico at Jaguar Rover Triumph in Leonia, New Jersey. It seems that this response had crossed the desk of Mr Graham W Gardener, Manager - Engineering Liaison of JRT in Leonia and he wrote to me personally. 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 dealers

1969 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser

1969 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser

Lot # 55178 (Sale Order: 4 of 28)

- Early example subject to comprehensive professional restoration in 2015/2016 - Capri Blue with grey seats - Current MoT with no advisories to 21 January 2018 The origins of the long-running Land Cruiser series of 4x4s date back to 1941, when the Japanese authorities ordered Toyota to reverse engineer the Jeep. The first Land Cruiser was launched 10 years later. The name has become a byword for rugged dependability in parts of the world where even the ubiquitous Land Rover has been known to struggle. The now classic FJ40 model was in production from 1960 to 1984. This RHD example was imported from Australia in 2015 and subjected to a comprehensive professional restoration in 2015/2016. The bodywork was restored by Sussex Coachworks whilst the engine and mechanics were entrusted to Imberhorne 4x4. We are advised that all panels were removed, shot blasted and resprayed in Capri Blue whilst the brakes, clutch, electrics, pistons, bearings, shock absorbers and cooling system were all renewed and the seats reupholstered. Used sparingly since completion, a shakedown journey to the Spa Classic was enjoyed with no issues. The vendor informs us the rear bench seat is not present, the odometer is missing a digit and the temperature sensor may need replacing. Otherwise he rates the bodywork as "excellent", the paintwork, engine and interior as "very good" and transmission as "good". Offered with current MoT with no advisories to 21 January 2018.

1937 Talbot BI 105 Airline Saloon

1937 Talbot BI 105 Airline Saloon

Lot # 55186 (Sale Order: 6 of 28)

- Stalled restoration with much work completed in the 1980s - Engine overhaul by Arthur Archer c.30 years ago, rechroming done etc. - Believed to include most parts to finish Unveiled at the October 1935 London Motor Show, the BI 105 was arguably the last 105 variant to remain true to designer Georges Roesch's engineering principles. 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 semi-elliptic 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. One of just a tiny handful of survivors, DLP 937 represents a rare opportunity for the discerning Talbot enthusiast. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl.

1965 Fiat 500 D Trasformabile

1965 Fiat 500 D Trasformabile

Lot # 55188 (Sale Order: 8 of 28)

- Delightful example restored in 2013 by Signature Classics - Celeste Crociera with cream interior, MoT to September 2018 - 600cc engine, synchromesh gearbox, converted to righthand drive Debuting in 1957, the Nuova 500 featured unitary construction and all-independent suspension. Introduced in 1960, the rare 500 D Trasformabile offered a full length folding roof and more performance from a detuned version of the Sport model's powerplant. Now a true motoring icon, the 500 is recognised as a landmark design in the history of motoring. This charming righthand drive conversion was sourced in Italy and professionally restored in 2012 by Signature Automobiles of Beckenham as a 40th birthday gift for the vendor's wife. Finished in Celeste Crociera with cream interior, an upgraded 600cc engine gives good performance although since completion of the works the car has been used sparingly and kept in a carcoon. A period looking suitcase complete with labels of 1960s icons adorns the boot. The history file includes a CD of images and photographs of the restoration together with copies of the original Italian title documents. Offered with MoT to September 2018 and Swansea V5C, this lovely little gem is ready to be enjoyed. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1968 Lotus Elan S3 Drophead Coupe

1968 Lotus Elan S3 Drophead Coupe

Lot # 55196 (Sale Order: 15 of 28)

- Light blue with black interior, replacement Spyder chassis - c.£6,000 spent on recommissioning in 2010 with Bateman's Performance Engineering - Recent hood, stored last four years, 44,981 miles recorded The original Ron Hickman-penned Elan looks as fresh as when it burst onto the roads in 1962 and, thanks to its lightweight, stiff backbone chassis, fully independent wishbone suspension and potent twin-cam powerplant, will still show a clean pair of heels to many a far younger rival. 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.

1934 Aston Martin 1.5 Litre 12/50 Long Chassis Tourer

1934 Aston Martin 1.5 Litre 12/50 Long Chassis Tourer

Lot # 55210 (Sale Order: 20 of 28)

- Recently repainted in dark blue and retrimmed with burgundy leather - Delivered new as a saloon, it is understood to have worn touring coachwork since the 1960s - Competed in the 1938 Scottish Rally, detailed history file One of very few examples produced on the long-wheelbase Standard chassis, 'G3/297/L' was originally bodied as a saloon and finished in black / maroon with black leather. The accompanying chassis card shows the first owner as one E C Peacock Esq of Castleford. Two further owners are listed, the most recent being W G Paddon (1946), while the AMOC Register records the car as participating in the 1938 International Scottish Rally driven by Christopher Angell. Angell modified the car with 'helmet' front wings and twin outside exhaust pipes, and repainted it white. An old-style continuation logbook lists Roy French as owner in 1968, followed by Richard Loveys, from 1971. By then it had been re-bodied as a tourer, as evidenced by reference to a 1967 advertisement in accompanying correspondence. Some restoration work had been done by Roy French, including the interior; nevertheless, it was decided to strip the car down to the chassis and rebuild it. Various specialists, principally Morntane Engineering, carried out the works, which were completed in 1979. The car was now painted white with green interior, re-trimmed later in tan leather. Richard and Sandra Loveys used the car extensively over the next 35 years, as recorded in its lengthy entry in the AMOC Register. As well as AMOC events, the Aston took part in the two-day Norwich Union Classic Run on numerous occasions, and in 2005 formed part of the St George's Day parade at Windsor in front of HM The Queen. The Loveys' last entry is for the year 2013 when the car attended no fewer than seven events. In 2016 the car was repainted in dark blue and trimmed with burgundy leather. A new hood, tonneau and sidescreens were also fitted. Offered with detailed history file and Swansea V5C. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)

1971 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible

1971 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible

Lot # 55212 (Sale Order: 22 of 28)

- Formerly the property of the late Sir Bruce Forsyth CBE - Blue with Blue hide and Blue roof - Current MoT and good history file In production between 1971 and 1996, the Rolls-Royce Corniche Drophead came to epitomize luxury open-air motoring. An accepted accoutrement alongside the private jet and crewed yacht, it was fabled for its extravagantly sumptuous interior and hushed drivetrain. Named after a region famous for its gently winding roads and breathtaking scenery, it was powered by a tuned version of Crewe's staple 6750cc V8 engine mated to automatic transmission. Equipped with firmer springs, thicker anti-roll bars together and revised steering geometry, it proved a more satisfying drive than its humbler saloon car siblings. Though, the presence of olio-pneumatic suspension and a plethora of electric motors ensured that it remained a singularly cosseting experience. Naturally favoured by the rich and famous, it is no surprise that this example was owned in the 1970s by the late Sir Bruce Forsyth CBE, then enjoying considerable success on the nation's television screens. 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. A comprehensive history file accompanies the car including MOTs going back to 1987 and various service items including invoices from Ghost Motor Works Ltd. who carried out a full service in October 2015, and overhauled the brakes including the accumulator spheres, valve bodies, and hoses to the tune of £4,800.00. Offered with Swansea V5C and copies of the chassis cards, this stylish drophead Rolls will carry a new MoT in time for the sale.

1953 Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire

1953 Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire

Lot # 55213 (Sale Order: 23 of 28)

- Ideal restoration project - Swansea V5C - Blue with red leather, manual gearbox Launched in 1952, the Sapphire range was powered by an advanced 3.4-litre six-cylinder hemi-head unit allied to either automatic or manual transmission as in the example offered here. Despite costing more than most rivals, the Sapphire was well-received 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 remains in the same unrestored state. Finished in blue with red interior, OLA 469 is offered with Swansea V5C registration document, workshop manual and spares list.

- Recent repaint and new hood, dark blue with tan interior - Wood refurbished, carpets replaced - Good quantity of old MoTs back to 1983, assorted invoices The Vitesse was launched in the April of 1962 and was effectively a big-engined version of Triumph's four-cylinder Herald range, based on the same backbone chassis. Like the Herald, it was styled by Giovanni Michelotti, who managed to redeploy most of the Herald body panels while giving the newcomer its own distinctive character, courtesy of a 'Chinese eye' four-headlamp front end. Power initially came from a 1596cc version of the family's straight-six Vanguard engine, though this was enlarged to 1998cc in 1966, when a more robust gearbox and better disc/drum brakes were also installed. Originally starting life as a saloon, LAO 354E is understood to have been converted around 1980 being enjoyed by two owners for the next twenty years. In 2013 the car was discovered needing work by a previous owner who commissioned a respray, a mechanical inspection, the fitting of new carpets and soft top. Not currently MoT'd, it is offered with Swansea V5c, assorted invoices, summary of works completed and a quantity of old MoT certificates. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 16.2% incl. VAT (@ 20%)
